    Considering that the punishment for getting it wrong is for sure the death penalty (unlike the punishment for getting it wrong in Japan), I do trust the Chinese more than I would trust the Japanese on this one.

    While Japan immobilizes itself by pandering to antinuclear emotions, China forges ahead.

    I believe the new plants being built in Japan are still 3rd generation? Since the 4th generation is the safest design ever, any idea why we are not building them here??

    The Shidao Bay plant "has been developed and designed solely by Chinese researchers", the state-run China Radio International said, quoting a China Huaneng Group researcher as saying the company hopes to export the design.

    The Chinese also said they had improved high speed rail technology. Then came the Wenzhou train collision.

    4th generation designs are still unproven. While it is good that China builds a plant, it is probably not such a good idea to use new technology on that scale.

    Is this a thorium plant?

    No. A small google expedition will show you that this is a uranium plant.

    Incidentally, this "4th generation" design seems to be a pebble-bed reactor, a technology that was tried but abandoned because too problematic in Germany. I somehow doubt that Chinese engineering can solve what the Germans could not.

    Well, it's an interesting experiment, and even if it should go wrong the prevailing winds will blow it away from China and over the Yellow Sea towards N & S Korea.
