Anti-nuclear protesters in Europe mounted another high-flying stunt in Spain Tuesday, where they piloted a motorized parachute over the Garona nuclear plant.Opened in 1971, Garona received a five-year license extension in February, which overturned an earlier government’s decision to close the plant in 2013. In response, Greenpeace activists deployed the paraglider and dropped smoke bombs onto the roof of the plant's reactor building, which AFP reported was an attempt to demonstrate a perceived lack of security at the facility.No threat to the plant was reported by its operator Nuclenor, which is owned by utilities Iberdrola and Endesa. The plant operates a single General Electric boiling water reactor equipped with a shield building designed to resist the impact of a commercial airliner, let alone an ultralight aircraft.Greenpeace has staged demonstrations at a number of nuclear plants around Europe in recent years. Last month, protesters flew a paraglider over the Bugey plant in France.
Should have been shot down!
I'm all for security. If Greenpeace is so idiotic as to fly paragliders over a nuclear facility and drop fake bombs, then the plant owners have my permission to shoot first and ask questions later.
What an absolutely ridiculous statement to make. Only someone with very little intelligence would assume that this was not thought out with the safety of all involved. What would you suggest? Bake them a cake and say please.......
Are you kidding me?? I think you were right on with the "Shoot em down" statement!! Green Peace??? Go hug another tree!!
