Maybe he meant radioactive pollution , as in radioactive waste from the whole plant , and not just the cooling towers .

Plus , if you must know , that steam actually has trace amounts of radioactive materials in it . Its probably too little to make any difference ( and if it does , it's still undocumented ) , but it's still there .

No no you don't know about the function of power plants the water that has radioactive isotopes never actually touches the cooling water and it's never in a gaseous form. It's in a tube super compressed so it does not become a gas, the water that's used to turn the turbine then goes in contact with the OUTSIDE of the tube it never touches the radioactive material, in any case it's still a waste of water a system could be made which the steam is recycled instead of going out of the cooling towers.

Well , I can't be sure , but that's what my teacher told me . That no matter how much the primary coil is sealed off from the secondary one ( and it's not always completely sealed off , especially if the reactor has been running for a long time without checks ) , a little bit of it still escapes into the secondary coil of water . Something about the radioactive particles being able to pass through the barrier which is not built out of lead .

Yes no system is perfect but it's definitely not enough to be called "pollution"

Isn't that what I said ?? i.e in the last para...

The pollution I referred to in the fast para , wasn't about the steam , it's about the radioactive waste which they have to dispose of , generally by burying the containers . I think I was clear in what I was saying .

well yea i think it was a bit unfair that you got thumbed down so much, but maybe you should be more pacific next time

I wonder if locking up and recycling the water would have a minor affect on local rainfall.

I dont think the guy is smart enough to know about that, considering he says "no" to the guys claim that it's steam
