Do you think other countries will follow Germany's lead and disable their nuclear power?
Current nuclear systems employ a TMR(Triple Module Redundancy) failsafe. That mean two out of three devices have to be saying it is ok to run, basically said in laymans terms. In my opinion, the past designs BWR, and ABWR (Boiling Water Reactor and Advanced Boiling Water Reactor) are sub standard designs. I believe this simply because all types of Plants require maintenance. THat means one of the three devices "WILL" be shut down at some point. Critical system components should be designed to be failsafe, and use force of nature (Gravity, etc.) to operate in the desired method, inorder to be a "Safe Source of Energy". THere is a new design currently being built that employs a large pool of water and gravity in place of feed water pumps, eliminating the possibility of meltdown for several months even if a failure ocured. This would allow enough time to repair the damage and avoid the disasters possible with the BWR and ABWR designs.
To answer your question... Depends on the design. And yes, the Germans are making the right decision for the design of Reactor they currently have. My opinion, is that they should shut it down, and build a new design.
