Jellyfish invasions shut down three nuclear power plants 07 Jul 2011 Seems like jellyfish are the latest critics against nuclear power use. Earlier this week a nuclear power plant on the coast of Israel was forced to shut down due to a jellyfish clog in their cooling system.

These events are sparking speculation on whether this is a growing trend driven by climate change global warming. The string of jellyfish surges began with a reactor in Shimane, Japan, and in a week's time two nuclear reactors on the Scottish coast were also crippled by jellyfish in the cooling system. The Scottish Torness nuclear power plants, as well as the Japan and Israel plants pull cold sea water to creating cooling pools for the reactors within.
