Back in August of 2009 there was a horrific accident at one of the world’s largest power plants.  75 workers died in this accident.  The following link is to an investigative report on the accident published in 2010.

Hopefully we can afford to keep our infrastructure in a safe running condition given all the federal cutbacks that have been occurring lately.
