Radiation 1,000 times normal at Japan nuke plant
Officials expand evacuation area around quake-damaged Fukushima plant


TOKYO — Radiation reached around 1,000 times the normal level Saturday in the control room of the No. 1 reactor of the Fukushima nuclear power plant, Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

The discovery suggests radioactive steam could spread around the facility operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co., Kyodo news agency reported.

The radiation surge followed Japan's massive earthquake, which caused a power outage that disabled a nuclear reactor's cooling system, triggering the evacuation of about 3,000 residents near the site, as the government declared its first-ever state of emergency at a nuclear plant.

The new surge spurred an expanded evacuation area.

Tepco: Radiation Could Already Have Leaked At Nuke Plant -Kyodo
http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20110311-714604.html

TOKYO (Dow Jones)--Radioactive substances could have already leaked at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, the operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501.TO) said Saturday, Kyodo News reported.

Radiation has been more than eight times the normal level at a monitoring post near the main gate of the plant, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency under the industry ministry said.

Damn.  Nuclear power is great - until something goes wrong.

I was always surprised that the Japanese would embrace nuclear power like they have.

I don't believe that people have much to say about it.  They just do what they want, as usual.   I mean wake up if anyone is FOR it.

The radioactive waste from a nuclear power plant doesn't half-life for even a billion years or something!  Then, that waste has to be stored *somewhere.*  Millions of gallons in 50-gallon drums -- where-oh-where,  for the next forever years?  oh, I forgot.  It doesn't matter so long as someone is making a lot of money!

They tried to store radioactive waste barrels from nuclear power plants, at Yucca Mountain, here in NV.  Digging up the inside of an entire mountain, lining it with cement.  Hey, what happens when *that* is full?  Last I knew, the plan was thwarted because NV residents don't feel their State is a waste dump like so many would like it to conveniently Be.

Where did it go?  Where do all those barrels of radioactive waste go? Knowing this bunch in power, probably right into our water supply.

Love, e

Trouble now at 2nd reactor

Japanese nuclear reactor in peril after deadly earthquake, tsunami off coast

By Steven Mufson
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, March 11, 2011; 5:06 PM

Japanese authorities on Saturday were racing to find ways to deliver new backup generators or batteries to a nuclear power reactor whose cooling facilities were crippled by a loss of power caused by the deadly earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on Friday afternoon.

The reactor, owned by Tokyo Electric Power Co., is drawing on battery power that may last only a few hours. Without electricity, the reactor will not be able to pump water to cool its hot reactor core, possibly leading to a meltdown or some other release of radioactive material.

Japanese authorities ordered the evacuation of about 3,000 residents within a 1.9-mile radius of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and told people within a 16.2-mile radius to remain indoors, according to the Web site of the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) Incident and Emergency Centre.

The cooling problem affects the second of six reactors at the plant, on the east coast of Japan about 200 miles north of Tokyo and south of the heavily damaged town of Sendai.

Separately, Tokyo Electric said it had decided to vent gas from another unit to relieve pressure that had increased 50 percent in the reactor containment vessel. The company said on its Web site that the pressure increase was "assumed to be due to leakage of reactor coolant." It remained unclear where the leak was. The company said it did not think there was leakage of reactor coolant in the containment vessel "at this moment."

There were also reports of elevated radiation levels inside the control room of that reactor unit, which was built 40 years ago.

Altogether, 11 Japanese nuclear reactors shut down automatically, as they were designed to do in case of an earthquake. Japan has 55 nuclear plants and two under construction.

"There's a basic cooling system that requires power, which they don't have," said Glenn McCullough, former chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority, referring to the unit in need of generators. McCullough, who has been keeping track of the situation in Japan, said that, after the tsunami, water had gotten into the diesel generators that would normally have provided backup power.

"The danger is the very thermally hot reactor cores at the plant must be continuously cooled for 24 to 48 hours," said Kevin Kamps, a specialist in nuclear waste at Beyond Nuclear, a group devoted to highlighting the perils of nuclear power. "Without any electricity, the pumps won't be able to pump water through the hot reactor cores to cool them."

In a statement that confused nuclear experts, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday morning that U.S. Air Force planes in Japan had delivered "coolant" to a nuclear power plant affected by the quake. Nuclear reactors do not use special coolants, only large amounts of pumped water.

"They have very high engineering standards, but one of their plants came under a lot of stress with the earthquake and didn't have enough coolant," she said, "and so Air Force planes were able to deliver that."

An Air Force spokesman at the Pentagon, however, said he was unaware of any deliveries being made by Air Force planes related to the reactor issues.

"To our knowledge, we have delivered nothing in support of the nuclear power plant," Lt. Col. John Haynes said. "Obviously, we stand by to assist with anything they might need." He said the Air Force had received no formal request for help.

Just hours after the quake, Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) declared a heightened state of alert at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, according to the IAEA. NISA said that no release of radiation has been detected.

The evacuation comes after NISA said Friday that a fire broke out at the Onagawa nuclear power plant but was later extinguished.

The plant is about 45 miles north of Sendai, which was badly damaged by the quake and tsunami. Sendai is the population center nearest the epicenter of the quake, and Japan's Kyodo News agency said 200 to 300 bodies had been found so far near the city.

The three reactors at the Onagawa site remained closed.

The key buildings in the Onagawa plant are about 15 meters above sea level, according to the Web site of Tohoku Electric Power, owner of the plant. The company said that was about twice the height of the previous highest tsunami.

Japanese authorities told the IAEA that the Onagawa, Fukushima-Daini and Tokai nuclear power plants shut down automatically and that no radiation release has been detected. The plants have multiple nuclear reactors.

The IAEA said it is seeking details on Fukushima Daiichi and other nuclear power plants and research reactors, including information on off-site and on-site electrical power supplies, cooling systems and the condition of the reactor buildings. Nuclear fuel requires continued cooling even after a plant is shut down, the IAEA noted.

"This is the most challenging seismic event on record, so it is a severe test," McCullough said. "Clearly the Japanese government is taking this very seriously."

Cooling fails at 3 reactors at another Japanese nuke plant
http://content.usatoday.com/communities/ondeadline/post/2011/03/cooling-fails-at-3-reactors-at-another-japanese-nuke-plant/1
By Michael Winter, USA TODAY


The cooling system has failed for three reactors at the Fukushima No. 2 nuclear plant, about seven miles from its quake-crippled companion, the Tokyo Electrical Power Co. now says.

The utility, which operates both Fukushima plants, notified the government Saturday morning that the failsafe system at the No. 2 plant stopped working as the coolant water topped the boiling point, the Kyodo news service reports.

when dealing with batshit crazy psycho from hell false flag operations...sometimes it is worthwhile to think outside the box...

earthquake/tsunami = planes

stuxnet = thermite



how would there be any evidence of stuxnet during a tsunami evacuation of nuke reactors? also, do those reactors use siemens controllers.

And it is not just nuke reactors, it is also power grids, damns, water mains, oil refineries, natural gas pipelines, etc. basically much of the industrial disasters that happened in the movie 2012 could be done with stuxnet and siemens.

not really saying this is a fact, but it may be worthwhile to investigate.

TOKYO (AP) — Japan declared states of emergency for five nuclear reactors at two power plants after the units lost cooling ability in the aftermath of Friday's powerful earthquake. Thousands of residents were evacuated as workers struggled to get the reactors under control to prevent meltdowns.

A single reactor in northeastern Japan had been the focus of much of the concern in the initial hours after the 8.9 magnitude quake, but the government declared new states of emergency at four other reactors in the area Saturday morning.

You know what the real problem is...no one supported DARPA's robotic cheetah project. If NATO had DARPA Cheetahs available NONE OF THIS WOULD BE HAPPENING!!!! And the DARPA Cheetah runs fast, it could have gotten to all 5 reactors and still have time to eat some dead human flesh to recharge its energy system.

Next time all of you slaves better not make fun of DARPA and their Cheetahs because they are just trying to save lives!

Snap analysis: Japan may have hours to prevent nuclear meltdown

Japanese officials may only have hours to cool reactors that have been disabled by Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami or face a nuclear meltdown.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) (9501.T) is racing to cool down the reactor core after a highly unusual "station blackout" -- the total loss of power necessary to keep water circulating through the plant to prevent overheating.

Wow, thankfully we finally have another "24" scenario!!!!!

People were starting to doubt the utter absurdity of a ticking time bomb, but NATO finally has a somewhat believable noosphere myth-building opportunity to provide an even more batshit crazy "solution" for which they can push on the masses of "shock and awed" sheep.

What do you think will be used to "save us"

will it be DARPA's human flesh eating cheetahs?

will it be some neutrino manipulating guidance system?

will is be SDI lasers?

wil it be remote operational control of SIEMENS systems (a.k.a. STUXNET itself) to counter the likelihood that a similar remote system was used to cause these odd synchronized events (this is similar to PTECH risk management network centric systems being deployed post-9/11 when PTECH and risk management was the largest cause of the 9/11 mass homocide)?

will it be the "missile defense" shield which is really a "precision strike" targeting system?

will it be some rapid deployment force of cybernetically controlled "super soldiers" in Dyncorp exoskeletal protection?

will it be a new form of UAV's which can engage in 360 degre 100,000 megapixel predictive surveillance while deploying tactical chemtrails that can instantly eradicate nuclear fallout?

Yes. There was a movie made about it in the 1970's called "The China Syndrome."

Here is a brief description from Wikepedia:

The China Syndrome is the scientific theory that as a result of a nuclear meltdown in which molten reactor core products breach the barriers below them and flow downwards through the floor of the containment building. The origin of the phrase is the myth that molten material from an American reactor could melt through the crust of the Earth and reach China.

Tsunami warning center raises magnitude of Japan quake to 9.1

The Japan earthquake was the fourth most powerful ever recorded with a magnitude of 9.1, twice more powerful than the initial estimate of 8.9, Gerard Fryer, geophysicist of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, said this morning.

...

The U.S. Geological Survey estimate of the quake's magnitude is still 8.9.

About 9,500 people are unaccounted for in the town of Minamisanriku in Miyagi Prefecture following Friday's powerful earthquake, prefectural officials said Saturday.

The figure is more than half of the population of about 17,000 in the town on the Pacific coast, they said.

Japan may hand out iodine near nuclear plants: IAEA

Japanese authorities have told the U.N.'s atomic watchdog they are making preparations to distribute iodine to people living near nuclear power plants affected by Friday's earthquake, the Vienna-based agency said.

Iodine can be used to help protect against thyroid cancer in the case of radioactive exposure in a nuclear accident.

After the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, thousands of cases of thyroid cancer were reported in children and adolescents who were exposed at the time of the accident. More cases are expected.

In Japan Saturday, radiation leaked from a damaged nuclear reactor after an explosion blew the roof off in the wake of the massive earthquake, but the government insisted that radiation levels were low.

Japan's Jiji news agency later said three workers suffered radiation exposure near the Fukushima nuclear plant.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the U.N. nuclear body, said Japanese authorities had informed it of the explosion and that they were "assessing the condition of the reactor core."

Japan expanded the evacuation zone around the plant, Fukushima Daiichi, and also that of the nearby Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant.

"The authorities also say they are making preparations to distribute iodine to residents in the area of both the plants," the IAEA said in a statement.

Actually - about the Chernobyl "dome" I read it is failing and needs replacement but that the Ukrainian govt cannot afford to do it so they are asking for help:

arcophagus replacementMain article: New Safe Confinement
On 17 September 2007 it was announced that a new steel containment structure named the New Safe Confinement (NSC) would be built to replace the aging and hastily built sarcophagus that currently protects reactor unit 4. The project, financed by an international fund managed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), will be designed and built by the French-led consortium Novarka, which includes the companies Bouygues and Vinci. Novarka will build a giant arch-shaped structure out of steel, 190 m wide and 200 m long to cover the old crumbling concrete dome that is currently in use.

This steel casing project is expected to cost $1.4 billion (£700 million, €1 billion), and expected to be completed in 2013.[8] A separate deal has also been made with the American firm Holtec to build a storage facility within the exclusion zone for nuclear waste produced by Chernobyl.

Radiation leaks from Japan's quake-hit nuclear plant
http://uk.reuters.com/article/2011/03/12/us-japan-quake-idUKTRE72A0SS20110312
FUKUSHIMA, Japan | Sat Mar 12, 2011 4:43pm GMT

(Reuters) - Radiation leaked from Japan's earthquake-crippled nuclear plant on Saturday after a blast blew the roof off, and authorities prepared to distribute iodine to people in the vicinity to protect them from exposure.

===================

The Aftermath of Hiroshima and Nagasaki:
The Emergence of the Cold War Radiation Research Bureaucracy

http://www.hss.energy.gov/HealthSafety/ohre/roadmap/achre/intro_6.html

While promoting the beneficial uses of radiation, the government also wished to continue and expand research on its harmful effects. Three days after the destruction of Hiroshima, Robert Stone wrote two letters to Stafford Warren's deputy, and Stone's former student, Hymer Friedell. The first expressed hope that the contribution of medical researchers could now be made public, so that people would know what they had done during the war.[57] The second letter described Stone's "mixed feelings" at the success that had been achieved and his fear that the lingering effects of radiation from the bomb had been underestimated: "I could hardly believe my eyes," Stone wrote, "when I saw a series of news releases said to be quoting Oppenheimer, and giving the impression that there is no radioactive hazard. Apparently all things are relative."[58]

Friedell and other researchers, including Stafford Warren and Shields Warren, soon traveled to Hiroshima and Nagasaki to begin what became an extensive research program on survivors. The data from that project quickly became and still remain the essential source of information on the long-term effects of radiation on populations of human beings. It was not long, however, before there were additional real-life data on the bomb, from postwar atomic tests. In 1946, the United States undertook the first peacetime nuclear weapons tests at Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Operation Crossroads, conducted before journalists and VIPs from around the world, was intended to test the ability of a flotilla of unmanned ships to withstand the blast. Since most of the ships remained afloat, the Navy declared Crossroads a triumph.[59] (continued) (http://www.hss.energy.gov/HealthSafety/ohre/roadmap/achre/intro_6.html)

Japan Tsunami Update: Nuclear Power Plant in Meltdown

New America Media, News Report, Yoichi Shimatsu, Posted: Mar 12, 2011

TOKYO— A day after Japan’s devastating Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, core meltdown is underway the Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant and, at this point, appears to be unstoppable. A mid-afternoon blast on Saturday demolished the structure housing an overheated and leaking reactor, raising the probability of a full-scale nuclear disaster, which could release radiation across the U.S. and even parts of Europe.

Just past noon in Japan, the Industrial Nuclear Safety Agency reported that the radioactive isotopes cesium and iodine had been detected by a monitoring station near the Fukushima plant. The facility has six reactors, three of them operating at the time of the earthquake. Two of these are overheating and Reactor 1 is leaking radioactive particles into the atmosphere.

The presence of these isotopes in air samples is a sure indicator of an uncontrolled chain reaction. Japanese nuclear engineers are explaining that overheated uranium rods seared through their metal casings, triggering the start of nuclear fission. The regulatory agency's statement contradicts the earlier claim of the plant’s operator, TEPCO, that all uranium rods were intact.

The afternoon explosion, which injured four workers, is hampering efforts by emergency workers to pump cold water into the reactor and release steam through safety valves. The internal steam pressure inside the reactor vessel is more than twice the approved level of the original design.

Truck-mounted generators have restored electrical power. The government has been frantically trying to locate robots to reopen the control room, which is now 1,000 times more radioactive than safe levels for humans. The cooling water is being provided by a common fire engine.

If temperatures and internal pressure cannot be significantly lowered soon, the likelihood of a fractured reactor barrier is increased. If the reactor shell cracks, the internal water will vaporize, creating conditions for uncontrolled fission and massive radioactive releases into the atmosphere.

West Coast USA Danger IF Japan Nuclear Reactor Meltdown

“If they can’t restore power to the plant (and cool the reactor), then there’s the possibility of some sort of core meltdown”. An alarming statement made by James Acton, a physicist who examined Japan’s Kashiwazaki nuclear plant after a 2007 earthquake, who told CNN that Japanese authorities are in race to cool down the Fukushima reactor.

Following the fifth largest earthquake in recorded world history, a magnitude 8.9 earthquake, has resulted in the closure of all Japan’s nuclear power reactors, one of which, the Fukushima reactor, is overheating and in danger of a meltdown if coolant is not restored soon. It’s like a pressure cooker… when you have something generating heat and you don’t cool it off or release the steam…

Reported from abc NEWS, Scientists said that even though the reactor had stopped producing energy, its fuel continues to generate heat and needs steady levels of coolant to prevent it from overheating and triggering a dangerous cascade of events.

They go on to say, “Up to 100 percent of the volatile radioactive Cesium-137 content of the pools could go up in flames and smoke, to blow downwind over large distances,”

“Given the large quantity of irradiated nuclear fuel in the pool, the radioactivity release could be worse than the Chernobyl nuclear reactor catastrophe of 25 years ago.” said Kevin Kamps, a nuclear waste specialist.

Fukushima I (there are two plant locations) is one of the 25 largest nuclear power stations in the world.

How would a nuclear plant meltdown unfold?

    * Control rods are driven back down into the core upon emergency (if rods don’t make it all the way… trouble)
    * The coolant (water) could cease if backup systems fail (electricity, pumps, generators, batteries)
    * Reactor continues to produce heat
    * Numerous venting valve systems would release pressure above ~1,000 psi into containment vessel
    * Eventually the uranium fuel encasement metal will melt (2,200 deg F)
    * Radioactive contamination then released into the reactor vessel
    * Radiation escapes into an outer, concrete containment building
    * Radiation escapes into the environment.

Not only would such a disaster be horrible for the local region and Japan, but other countries, namely the U.S. would be effected next by airborne radiation particles, the magnitude of which is yet to be determined.

Why would the west coast USA be in danger?
The prevailing jet stream winds are blowing from Japan directly across the Pacific ocean to the west coast of the United States. Any airborne radiation would make its way across with the jet stream, reaching the U.S. in approximately 36 hours, depending on the actual speed of the jet.

Looks like it may have been averted. I hope this is accurate. They're pouring seawater into it now.

Tokyo – Fears of a nuclear meltdown in Japan have subsided after a reactor that was damaged in Friday’s devastating earthquake reportedly emerged intact from an explosion.

A day after the country was thrown into chaos by a fierce tsunami triggered by the largest earthquake in Japan’s history, the country was, for a few terrifying hours, bracing itself for a possible nuclear catastrophe.

Television cameras captured the moment that smoke poured from what at first appeared to be one of four reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, located 150 miles north of Tokyo.

IN PICTURES: Japan's 8.9 earthquake

After a few nerve-wracking hours, however, the government and the plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power, said the damage had been confined to the walls and roof surrounding the reactor, sparing its metal casing.

The chief cabinet secretary, Yukio Edano, told a televised press conference that radiation around the plant had, in fact, started to decrease.

A “tiny” amount of radiation had leaked earlier in the day when officials attempted to relieve pressure inside the reactor.

“We have confirmed that the walls of this building were what exploded, and not the reactor’s container,” Edano said, adding, “There was no large amount of radiation leakage outside. At this point, there has been no major change to the level of radiation leakage outside, so we'd like everyone to respond calmly.”

Some exposure to radiationTokyo Electric said four workers had suffered minor injuries in the explosion and were being treated in hospital. But Japanese TV reported that three people who were seeking refuge nearby when the explosion occurred may have been exposed to radiation.

The reactor was one of several at two nuclear plants in Fukushima prefecture whose cooling systems failed after the area was shaken by Friday’s 8.9-magnitude earthquake.

Prior to the explosion, officials had detected eight times the normal radiation levels outside the facility, and 1,000 times normal inside the affected reactor’s control room.

As officials attempted to relieve the pressure building up inside the affected reactors, the chilling prospect of a Chernobyl-style meltdown momentarily drew media attention away from the human tragedy unfolding elsewhere in the region.

As a precaution, the government expanded evacuation zones around both of the affected plants and advised residents to leave the area. In all more than 51,000 resident living near the facilities have been evacuated.

Many feared the worst when TV pictures showed the reactor building had been reduced to its metal frame.

Sea water used to cool reactorThe firm said it planned to fill the reactor with sea water to cool it down and reduce pressure, while officials said its core remained intact.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said it was urgently seeking details from Japanese authorities, adding that plans were being made to distribute iodine to local residents.

The incident could call into question Japan’s enthusiasm for nuclear power. The country’s 54 reactors provide 30 percent of its electricity, and there are plans to increase provision to 50 percent by 2030. But the industry has been plagued by accidents and allegations of cover-ups.

Anti-nuclear campaigners said the dangers of a serious accident remained.

“Fukushima remains under threat of a serious reactor meltdown,” said Jan Beranek, head of Greenpeace International’s nuclear campaign. “This would potentially create an iodine cloud, which could spread high radiation levels to both the environment and population over many tens of kilometers.”

Situation Update No. 11
On 12.03.2011 at 19:13 GMT+2

More Japanese were told to evacuate Saturday after an explosion at an earthquake-damaged nuclear plant, and iodine will be distributed to counter radiation. Yukio Edano, the government's top press officer, said the explosion at the Fukushima No. 1 plant occurred in the building housing the reactor's container but did not damage the container itself, Kyodo News Service reported. No increase in radiation levels around the reactor was detected immediately after the blast. RIA Novosti reported the iodine would be handed out to help shield residents from radiation exposure. The United States and France are sending supplies of the chemical. The reactor and others in the heavily populated area are operated by Tokyo Electric Co. Those living within 7 miles of the plant had already been ordered to evacuate, and that radius was doubled after the explosion as a precaution, Edano said. Four employees in the building were injured. Officials said the reactors all shut down after the quake. The cooling system at Fukushima No. 1 was damaged, which could lead to a partial meltdown. Tokyo Electric now plans to fill the container with seawater, an operation that could take 10 days, Edano said. Prime Minister Naoto Kan declared a state of emergency in the area, the BBC said. Friday's earthquake also triggered a tsunami that reached as far as California. Japanese officials say at least 600 people were killed, although hundreds remained unaccounted for Saturday.

Situation Update No. 12
On 12.03.2011 at 19:14 GMT+2

Japan officially informed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Saturday that it experienced a 'nuclear accident with local consequences' at its Fukushima nuclear plant because radioactive doses at the sites' boundary were above-limit. Japanese authorities posted a short report on the IAEA's nuclear incident database, assigning the accident the level 4 on the international INES scale that runs from 1 (anomaly) to 7 (major accident). A level-4 accident is defined as having 'local consequences,' such as a 'minor release of radioactive material,' according to the IAEA's definition. The database entry said reactor unit 1 of the Fukushima Daiichi power station was 'generally shut down' around 2:46 pm (05:46 GMT) Saturday because of the earthquake. 'After that, the radioactive dosage value at site boundary had exceeded the limit value,' it said. An IAEA spokesman was not immediately able to specify how Japan defines the term site boundary.

Situation Update No. 28
On 12.03.2011 at 19:11 GMT+2

As many as 10,000 people have been reported missing in a northern Japanese town as a strong aftershock hit near a nuclear plant in Fukushima. Three people evacuated from the area near the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant were exposed to radiation. The three were randomly chosen for examination out of about 90 bedridden patients moved from the hospital in the town of Futaba-machi. The patients had waited for rescuers outside a school, spending a long time outside and then being moved by helicopter at the time when an explosion hit the aging plant. Up to 10,000 residents in the port town of Minamisanriku in the Miyagi prefecture - more than half of the population - were unaccounted for, highlighting the unfolding scale of the disaster.

Local authorities are trying to find their whereabouts with the help of soldiers. Authorities confirmed that around 7500 people were evacuated to 25 shelters after the quake, but they were unable to contact the other 10,000. "Our monitoring operations have been hampered with debris and mud," an official said. "Even helicopters can't approach some of the shelters. I'm afraid that it will take more time to finish our confirmation procedures." An aftershock with a magnitude of 6.4 hit near the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, where nuclear officials earlier confirmed a radiation leak and doubled the evacuation zone around the crippled reactor. Prime Minister Naoto Kan said Friday's 8.9-magnitude earthquake and 10-metre tsunami was an "unprecedented national disaster" and appealed for calm as fears grew amid the atomic emergency.

"By taking firm measures, we will do our best not to have even a single person suffer from health problems," he said. "From the bottom of my heart, I would like everybody to listen to the government and to media reports and to act calmly." Dramatic TV footage showed the blast at the nuclear plant ripping through the coastal facility, sending plumes of smoke billowing high into the air. The operator of the plant said the reactor container was not damaged despite the large explosion, Japan's chief cabinet secretary Yukio Edano told a TV briefing, adding that radiation levels fell after the blast. "The nuclear reactor is surrounded by a steel reactor container, which is then surrounded by a concrete building. The concrete building collapsed. We found out that the reactor container inside didn't explode," Mr Edano said. Edano said the explosion was caused by hydrogen, generated by the falling level of cooling water, pouring into space between the building and container and exploding when it mixed with oxygen.

"We've confirmed that the reactor container was not damaged … As such there was no large amount of radiation leakage outside," he said. "We've decided to fill the reactor container with sea water …. By doing this, we will use boric acid to prevent criticality," he said, adding it would take five to 10 hours to fill the reactor. The evacuation radius around the plant was doubled to 20km. Radioactivity at the plant, which is 250km north of capital Tokyo, was 20 times over the normal level, and hourly radiation matched the allowable annual dose. Several workers were reported to be injured in the explosion - one seriously - and smoke was seen billowing out of the plant. Eyewitnesses reported strong shaking at the plant shortly before the blast.

TV channels warned nearby residents to stay indoors, turn off air-conditioners and not to drink tap water. People going outside were told to avoid exposing their skin and to cover their faces with masks and wet towels. They were also provided with iodine. The plant's sister plant, Fukushima No. 2, was also experiencing cooling problems. . Entire towns remain underwater, buildings have been destroyed, landslides have wiped away huge swathes of the landscape - carrying houses with them - and fires were still burning in the middle of the water, fueled by leaking oil.

Japanese troops found 300 to 400 bodies in the coastal city of Rikuzentakata, a small city around 113km to the north of Sendai, and around 65km north of Minamisanriku. The death toll was rising throughout Saturday with the number of people dead or missing was feared to be above 1700 - a figure that is sure to rocket. The amazing power of the quake was made clear by the US Geological Survey (USGS), which revealed the main island had shifted 2.4 metres and shifted the Earth on its axis. Japan mobilized 50,000 military and other rescue personnel to spearhead the Herculean rescue and recovery effort and reached out to countries including Britain for assistance. Four trains remained unaccounted for, Kyodo reported, after they were caught in the tsunami while running in a coastal area of Miyagi and Iwate prefectures. It is not known how many people were aboard. More than five million homes remain without power and the number of partially or completely destroyed buildings has reached 3400. More than 215,000 people were in emergency shelters and rescue officials struggled to access most of the tsunami-hit areas.

Now the 3rd reactor is in trouble

Japan Fukushima nuclear plant faces new reactor problem

TOKYO, March 13 (Reuters) - A quake-hit Japanese nuclear plant reeling from an explosion at one of its reactors has also lost its emergency cooling system at another reactor, Japan's nuclear power safety agency said on Sunday.

The emergency cooling system is no longer functioning at the No.3 reactor at Tokyo Electric Power Co's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility, requiring the facility to urgently secure a means to supply water to the reactor, an official of the Japan Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency told a news conference.

On Saturday, an explosion blew off the roof and upper walls of the building housing the facility's No. 1 reactor, stirring alarm over a possible major radiation release, although the government later said the explosion had not affected the reactor's core vessel and that only a small amount of radiation had been released.

The nuclear safety agency official said there was a possibility that at least nine individuals had been exposed to radiation, according to information gathered from municipal governments and other sources.

I feel so sorry for the Japanese People.

So many died from the long-term radiation poisoning from Chernobyl.    Plus, reproduction is not good with those who have suffered this.  Americans were warned to stay in their homes when the air currents brought the radiation over from Chernobyl.  The Japan nuclear power plant disaster(s?) is worse.

I continue to be appropriately skeptical of the governments' and TEPCO's claims. They're giving conflicting info in almost every statement.

Flooding the reactor with seawater, and now with boric acid too, means that plant is a writeoff. This is the last resort; they're destroying the plant to try to save the area around it. That wouldn't happen if things were improving, as they say they are.

Salt actually increases the boiling temperature compared to pure water, so it would not heat up quicker than pure water.

Right.  It takes longer to reach boiling, so it gets a bit hotter.  But, boiling temps vary according to elevation.  This is home-cooking -- does the same apply to sea water?

US experts fear 'Chernobyl-like' crisis for Japan

By Ken Maguire
Agence France-Presse


WASHINGTON – US nuclear experts warned Saturday that pumping sea water to cool a quake-hit Japanese nuclear reactor was an "act of desperation" that may foreshadow a Chernobyl-like disaster.

Several experts, in a conference call with reporters, also predicted that regardless of the outcome at the Fukushima No. 1 atomic plant crisis, the accident will seriously damage the nuclear power renaissance.

"The situation has become desperate enough that they apparently don't have the capability to deliver fresh water or plain water to cool the reactor and stabilize it, and now, in an act of desperation, are having to resort to diverting and using sea water," said Robert Alvarez, who works on nuclear disarmament at the Institute for Policy Studies.

"I would describe this measure as a 'Hail Mary' pass," added Alvarez, using American football slang for a final effort to win the game as time expires.

An 8.9 magnitude earthquake that struck Japan on Friday set off the emergency at the plant, which was then hit by an explosion Saturday that prompted an evacuation of the surrounding area.

Workers doused the stricken reactor with sea water to try to avert catastrophe, after the quake knocked out power to the cooling system.

What occurred at the plant was a "station blackout," which is the loss of offsite air-conditioning power combined with the failure of onsite power, in this case diesel generators.

"It is considered to be extremely unlikely but the station blackout has been one of the great concerns for decades," said Ken Bergeron, a physicist who has worked on nuclear reactor accident simulation.
"We're in uncharted territory," he said.

Not too I would think....

Read up on this it gets into quite a few details relating to thyroid protection ala nuclear release/bombs...... the best part is.... Over 40? NO SOUP FOR YOU!  :D :D >:( >:(

Probably good to have some around though.

[edit] Historical use and analysis

Following the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster in April, 1986, a saturated solution of potassium iodide (SSKI) was administered to 10.5 million children and 7 million adults in Poland[22] as a prophylactic measure against accumulation of radioactive iodine-131 in the thyroid gland. People in the areas immediately surrounding Chernobyl itself, however, were not given the supplement.[23]

Potassium iodide’s (KI) value as a radiation protective (thyroid blocking) agent was demonstrated at the time of the Chernobyl nuclear accident when Soviet authorities distributed it in a 30 km zone around the plant. The purpose was to protect residents from radioactive iodine, a highly carcinogenic material found in nuclear reactors which had been released by the damaged reactor. Only a limited amount of KI was available, but those who received it were protected. Later, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reported, “thousands of measurements of I-131 (radioactive iodine) activity...suggest that the observed levels were lower than would have been expected had this prophylactic measure not been taken. The use of KI...was credited with permissible iodine content in 97% of the evacuees tested.”[24]

Poland, 300 miles from Chernobyl, also distributed KI to protect its population. Approximately 18 million doses were distributed, with follow-up studies showing no known thyroid cancer among KI recipients.[25] With the passage of time, people living in irradiated areas where KI was not available have developed thyroid cancer at epidemic levels, which is why the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported “The data clearly demonstrate the risks of thyroid radiation...KI can be used [to] provide safe and effective protection against thyroid cancer caused by irradiation.[26]

Chernobyl also demonstrated that the need to protect the thyroid from radiation was greater than expected. Within ten years of the accident, it became clear that thyroid damage caused by released radioactive iodine was virtually the only adverse health effect that could be measured. As reported by the NRC, studies after the accident showed that “As of 1996, except for thyroid cancer, there has been no confirmed increase in the rates of other cancers, including leukemia, among the...public, that have been attributed to releases from the accident.”[27]

But equally important to the question of KI is the fact that radiation releases are not “local” events. Researchers at the World Health Organization accurately located and counted the cancer victims from Chernobyl and were startled to find that “the increase in incidence [of thyroid cancer] has been documented up to 500 km from the accident site...significant doses from radioactive iodine can occur hundreds of kilometers from the site, beyond emergency planning zones."[28] Consequently, far more people than anticipated were affected by the radiation, which caused the United Nations to report in 2002 that “The number of people with thyroid cancer...has exceeded expectations. Over 11,000 cases have already been reported.”[29]

I bet it is not 1/100th the radiation from DU munitions in Iraq.

I wonder why Reuters, AFP, AP, and CNN are not comparing the two.

Hundreds of tons of DU munitions have been deployed all over Iraq:

http://www.truth-out.org/article/depleted-uranium-horror-america

Also...if US/UK did use underground nukes for this overtly obvious false flag...what a great cover story for why there is gamma radiation all over the place.

According to all of the pre-2 days ago studies...the nuke plants have a much less chance of being compromised from an earthquake than from Stuxnet, SDI, sabotage, etc.

Exactly what happened to the BP rig in the gulf anyway? Was it sabotage? Was it Stuxnet?

Is anyone investigating the likelihood that this was done by similar psychos who wish to demolish the nuclear energy industry?

Right.  It takes longer to reach boiling, so it gets a bit hotter.  But, boiling temps vary according to elevation.  This is home-cooking -- does the same apply to sea water?

The basic rule of thumb is any impurity in water contributes to an overall higher specific heat when compared with the specific heat of pure water, so yes it does apply to sea water.

Salt actually increases the boiling temperature compared to pure water, so it would not heat up quicker than pure water.

for sanity's sake...chernobyl was sabotaged, this is an accepted fact in history. they were warned over and over again, the engineers were not allowed to do their jobs, very similar to the BP rig in the gulf. with stuxnet, anyone can do anything without the engineers even knowing.

it would be interesting to track the events after stuxnet became known till today concerning these reactors. did they take precautions? what were they?

Quote
Many industries vital to the economy of Japan were left limping through Saturday following a devastating earthquake and tsunami as factories closed to assess damage throughout Japan’s northern region.

Japan relies on its massive export industries to drive the economy, but many of the companies that drive this industry have halted production to assess the damage from the quake and tsunami.

Sony, Toyota, Nissan and Honda are among the major corporations to have closed factories, while transport of manufactured goods remains difficult due to damage to roads and rail lines.

In addition, many ports on the northeast coast have been severely damaged by the tsunami that struck on Friday, making exports impossible.

Economists who spoke to the BBC warned that the affect on Japan’s national economy could be “profound”, but would likely be less severe than the 1995 Kobe earthquake, which had its epicentre much closer to major economic centres.

If a full meltdown does occur at the Fukushima nuclear plant, which has experienced major malfunctions since the earthquake, then the economic affects may be much larger as a potentially huge part of the country will become uninhabitable.
 

It is going to  bring Japanese economy to its knees.  Perhaps ours with it.

Saving Japan's Nuclear Reactor Industry

By Robert K. Temple

Japan Inc blogs Japan is a world leader in nuclear reactor technology. That lead, however, is threatened by China, France, Korea and Russia. Moreover, failure in the American State of Texas might be the end for Japanese vendors of commercial nuclear reactors; companies which have been spearheading expansion of Japan’s globe-leading industries. This failure is threatened not by mistakes by the companies themselves, but rather by the lack of political will and foresight of the U.S. Government, a government that has lacked the leadership to pass a carbon tax and not had the vision to appropriate adequate financing for nuclear power. Fortunately, there still is time for the Japanese nuclear industry to act to save itself, and, ironically, to save America as well from its short-sighted ways.

The solution isn’t complicated—but it is not inexpensive either. It will require Japanese vendors to take the lead and secure financing for plant construction and commitments for the power produced. Only by making sure these plants are constructed as planned will Japan secure its future in this developing industry. What’s more, if the world market for carbon-free energy continues to develop as anticipated, an added benefit of a commitment to take the output of these plants may be a nice additional profit in the merchant energy market.

This article will summarize the Who, What and How the Texas projects have failed or are likely to fail and steps that can still be taken to alter the current trajectory. Japanese companies had started down the right path, and they thought they had closed sales on three nuclear projects proposed to be built in Texas. Celebration of these deals may have been premature as one project is dead, another project was ordered by a company that now lacks the balance sheet to complete it, and the last project developer appears unlikely to be able to secure financing. Having recently lost out on nuclear projects in the middle east, Japan’s success in the U.S. market is critical to demonstrating it can deliver nuclear projects in a world market and compete effectively against the Chinese, French, Koreans and Russians.

Who are the players?

(http://www.japaninc.com/files/nuclear-players_520x498.jpg)

In two of the three Texas nuclear projects the Japanese reactor vendor is already on both sides of the transaction, as reactor vendor and project developer.

What happened?

First, the limited capacity of US Department of Energy (DOE) loan guarantees has been a factor in all three of the Texas nuclear projects. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 allocated $18.5 billion in loan guarantees for advanced nuclear projects in the U.S. DOE short-listed four projects of the 17 project applicants for further consideration for loan guarantees. A conditional commitment was extended to the developers of the Vogtle Project for a total of $8.3 billion, tying up about 45% of the available loan guarantee capacity on a single project.

As neither the Victoria County Project nor the Comanche Peak Project made DOE’s loan guarantee short list, those projects have stalled. Given the absence of a liquid market to finance merchant nuclear development, federal loan guarantees or other forms of financing are essential to make these projects move forward. Exelon has changed the Victoria Project from an application for a reactor license to a site permit – a measure that could bank the site for later development. Energy Future Holdings, the main sponsor for the Comanche Peak Project, is thought to be too busy reorganizing its massive debt portfolio to move beyond seeking a license for its project.

Even Nuclear Innovation North America’s (NINA’s) interest in the South Texas Project, which made the loan guarantee short list, is at risk of not getting loan guarantees in part due to the lack of loan guarantee program capacity. The other two qualifying projects on DOE’s short list (VC Summer and Calvert Cliffs) may receive DOE loan guarantee commitments ahead of NINA, which could easily exhaust the remaining loan guarantee program capacity. A variety of bills have been offered proposing to expand the existing loan guarantee program capacity to between $27.5 billion (an additional $9 billion) up to $54 billion (an additional 35.5 billion). Loan guarantee program capacity alone, however, is not NINA’s only problem.

NINA lacks both the balance sheet and source of income to repay a federally guaranteed loan. NINA’s share of the South Texas Project expansion is in the competitive Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market. NINA is a merchant nuclear development company without material assets beyond its interest in the South Texas Project expansion with which to secure financing for a multi-billion dollar nuclear development project. NRG’s CEO David Crane has made clear that this project is not going forward with parent-company guarantees from NRG. In its earnings call on August 2, 2010, Mr. Crane announced that his company is rolling back spending on the South Texas Project to $1.5 million per month while uncertainties about NINA’s ability to obtain loan guarantees remain.

How did this happen?

First, the current U.S. Presidential administration had priorities other than carbon or nuclear that it focused on. The administration used up its political good will, at least for the first two Congressional terms, on health care and Wall Street. It lacked the ability to get an energy bill through Congress with either a carbon penalty or that expands the loan guarantee program. Second, the economic crisis led to some reduction in electricity demand. This combined with a soft market for natural gas flattened an otherwise solidly increasing price curve for electricity within ERCOT.

Third, in light of the soft electric and natural gas markets and high capital cost for large nuclear projects the easy choice for power purchasers was to wait. Why commit to a long-term contract for electricity from a nuclear plant if electricity prices on the ERCOT market, driven by natural gas, remain soft? Fourth, it is easier in a market with soft electricity prices to justify waiting to build a natural gas plant than to invest in or buy output from a new nuclear plant. A new natural gas-fueled plant can be brought on line from permitting into operation in a little more than three years. In contrast, a capital-intensive nuclear power plant is estimated to take about ten years to bring through permitting and construction. Fifth, the DOE is looking for developers to be able to demonstrate that they can pay the debt service on loans receiving federal guarantees. In a merchant market that means the developer must have solid power purchase agreements with credit-worthy buyers. With a soft electricity and natural gas market in ERCOT and questionable stability of the merchant developers, potential customers are not rushing to make long-term power purchase commitments.

What can be done to change the ending of this story?

Changing what is a likely failure of Texas nuclear development into a nuclear renaissance will require adding to or supplementing the loan guarantee program capacity and having financially capable developers with commitments from bona fide customers. Putting a price on carbon emissions from fossil-fueled plants will certainly make nuclear more attractive in a competitive electricity market.

Expansion of or supplementing the DOE loan guarantee program is critical to any hoped-for resurgence for US nuclear development. An additional $9 billion with substantial assistance from Japan (for the South Texas Project) and France (for the Calvert Cliffs project) might allow the remaining three projects on DOE’s short list to get built. In the absence of additional allocations for loan guarantees, there will not be enough nuclear projects in the US to really prime the pump for new nuclear development. A shortage of US projects will dampen the world nuclear market.

Putting a price on carbon, either through imposition of a carbon tax or carbon cap-and-trade program, will put to rest the uncertainty of the price point for fossil-fueled generation as compared to alternatives. With relatively low natural gas prices even a small price on carbon makes the cost of nuclear and the risks of developing nuclear reasonable when compared to the alternatives. With environmental pressure on other fossil fuels, greater demand will raise the price of natural gas. The historic volatility of and likely increase in demand on natural gas continues to make nuclear a natural hedge against otherwise volatile electricity prices.

Beyond loan guarantees, financially stable projects can be achieved through two means. One alternative is to offer electricity under terms attractive to purchasers and another is to obtain increased equity involvement from financially sound partners or increased support from other resources.

With the first alternative the developer could sell electricity to companies with a balance sheet, including municipal utilities and electric cooperatives, in a fashion that protects each power off-taker’s interests from default by the developer. Municipals and cooperatives have little interest in betting their electric generation futures on the fate of a limited liability developer. Historically some merchants have demonstrated the ability, through bankruptcy and otherwise, to walk away from obligations under power purchase agreements. What municipal or cooperative wants to enter into a long-term power purchase agreement and assume the risk that they could be forced into the spot market for electricity if their developer counter-party walks away from its deal? Public-private partnerships which convey ownership rights in the event of default may have some interest for municipal and cooperative utilities. However, it will require a credible broker and a favorable agreement to interest these parties.

The second alternative is for weak developers to cede project interest at a reasonable cost to companies with enough of a balance sheet to complete the project. To some extent NINA has been trying to do this, with a promised sale of at least 10% of NINA to Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), but the sale to TEPCO will close only if NINA is able to first close on DOE loan guarantees.

Given the development risks and the limited capabilities of NINA, expansion of the South Texas Project probably needs more partners to make that project a reality. What may be required to get these projects launched is additional support from the Japanese to bridge the gap in the US loan guarantee program or shore up the weak developers. While Japanese vendors have taken minority (12%) stakes in two of these projects, it may take a larger commitment.

Another approach to address the financial weakness of the Texas developers is for the Japanese to guarantee a larger portion of the project risk. This could come in the form of guarantees for repayment of DOE-backed loans or additional direct project support from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation. While that would expose the guarantor to additional development and ERCOT market risk, it would assure completion of the projects and demonstrate Japanese confidence in the competitiveness of their products. There may also be a broader role TEPCO could play to help manage these risks.

Conclusion

The projects the Japanese sold in Texas currently appear to have stalled and may be destined for failure. A change in course with developers, loan guarantees and possibly carbon may be necessary to alter this outcome. If there is a penalty on fossil-fueled alternatives, then carbon-free nuclear is a viable alternative source of electricity in the competitive ERCOT market.

There are actions within the control of the vendors that can change the outcome for these projects. Vendors must convince developers to bring in additional credit-worthy partners (or sell projects to companies with the balance sheet to complete them). Developers must obtain commitments for energy from these projects to have any likelihood of success. Credible brokers offering project-level guarantees will be needed to get credit-worthy purchasers to commit to long-term power purchase agreements with developers.

For the sake of their position in the world market, Japanese should be willing to take on a greater share of the risk and potential reward from the Texas nuclear projects. Whether that comes in the form of additional equity interest or guarantees for repayment of project debt, to avoid losing additional share of the world nuclear market the Japanese must demonstrate they can be successful suppliers of nuclear technology outside of Japan.

Shadow cyber spy network revealed
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8605548.stm

A "complex cyber-espionage" network that penetrated various organisations including the Office of the Dalai Lama, has been uncovered by researchers.The shadow network targeted government, business, and academic computers at the United Nations and the Embassy of Pakistan in the US, among others. It was used to steal at least 1,500 emails from the Office of the Dalai Lama, the researchers said. The attacks were thought to originate in the city of Chengdu in China. Specifically, the researchers, from the Information Warfare Monitor and the Shadowserver Foundation, said they had evidence of "links between the Shadow network and two individuals living in Chengdu". Information Warfare Monitor comprises researchers from Ottawa-based think tank SecDev Group and the University of Toronto's Munk Centre for International Studies. The individuals were identified by e-mail addresses and are thought to be part of China's "underground hacking community". The network was outlined in a report called Shadows in the Cloud. "The social media clouds of cyberspace we rely upon today have a dark, hidden core," said Professor Ron Diebert, director of the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk Centre, launching the report. "There is a vast, subterranean ecosystem to cyberspace within which criminal and espionage networks thrive." He said the network had reached into the "upper echelons of the Indian security establishment" and should act as a "wake up call" to governments to co-operate on cybersecurity.

Social exploits
The team said its eight-month investigation showed no "hard evidence" of the involvement of the government of the People's Republic of China, "An important question to be entertained is whether the PRC will take action to shut the Shadow network down," the report said.
   

Major cyber spy network uncovered
China's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told a press conference that the country was "firmly opposed" to hacking "We have from time to time heard this kind of news. I don't know the purpose of stirring up these issues," she said. She added the researchers have not formally contacted China, although the researchers said they had contacted the country's Computer Emergency Response Team (Cert). "We would expect that kind of statement," said Professor Diebert. "Have a look at that report and make up your mind whether you think it is groundless." The researchers said that the network - known as a botnet - exploited social networking and cloud computing platforms, "including Google, Baidu, Yahoo, and Twitter" to infect computers with malicious software, or malware. This allowed hackers to take control of the PCs of several foreign ministries and embassies across the world. A more complex network of "command and control" computers was used to control the infect computers.

'Secret contents'
In 2009, the team previously exposed GhostNet, a massive network that was found to have infiltrated 1,295 computers in 103 countries. That investigation had started at the request of the Dalai Lama, Tibet's spiritual leader. The new investigation showed that his office had been targeted again, with more than 1,500 letters sent from the Dalai Lama's office between January and November 2009 recovered by the team. The researchers said that they had also recovered a number of documents that were in the possession of the Indian government, including two documents marked "secret", six as "restricted", and five as "confidential" Recovered documents included Canadian visa applications. The team said they had no direct evidence that they had been stolen form Indian Government computers. Instead, they said, the documents may have been stolen after being copied onto personal computers. In addition, the researchers found evidence that the hackers had targeted the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacifc (UNESCAP). However the team said the hackers had been largely "indiscriminate in what they took". "The attackers disproportionately took sensitive information but also took financial and personal information," the team said at launch.  The team said the investigation is ongoing.

Congress asks about cyber black ops

It should be no surprise to anyone that the U.S. military has offensive cyber capabilities, and on occasion may have used them in clandestine operations known as black-ops. Security experts believe China, Russia and the United States are in a dead heat when it comes to cyber capabilities.

As a regulator requirement, our military provides a classified quarterly report on clandestine activities as part of congressional oversight. After reviewing that report in mid-January, Congress quickly pointed out the absence of cyber operations in the document provided. This became very public as the Senate Armed Services Committee questioned Mike Vickers, the nominee for director of National Intelligence. Vickers replied and quickly pointed out that cyber/high-tech operations are not specifically listed in the law requiring the reporting of clandestine operations.

Were members of the Senate Armed Services Committee just asking general questions or were they looking for something specific? Could the vague inquiry have been related to claims that the U.S. military/intelligence community was involved in the sophisticated Stuxnet cyber attack on Iran’s nuclear enrichment program? That is a real possibility since Iran announced its intention to pursue legal actions through the International Courts against Israel and possibly others (United States and United Kingdom) for the murders of its scientists including the chief Stuxnet investigator.

The pace with which the cyber domain is changing is far greater than what we are accustomed to dealing with. Perhaps an honest oversight took place, or has the pace with which cyber warfare has progressed outpaced the policies and laws, such as the ones requiring proper reporting of clandestine operations to Congress. If it was directed at the Stuxnet incident, those are the topics best addressed behind closed doors in a classified setting and the questioning was way out of line for this setting.

I read the story that we sent coolant over there, but some of the comments by people that Japan didn't need our coolant.  That is all I have heard.

Also, the fact that the coolant ship was right there, what are the odds?  Also, the humanitarian ship that was waiting off the coast.  Kinda like Haiti, when we had ships ready to rock and roll.

Maybe Secretary of Defense, Mr. Cohen, needs to be indicted for crimes against humanity!

http://www.defense.gov/transcripts/transcript.aspx?transcriptid=674

Sec. of Defense William J. Cohen:
 ... "The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops."...

"Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism
whereby they can alter the climate,
set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely

through the use of electromagnetic waves.

So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways
in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason
why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important."

Japan races to avert multiple nuclear meltdowns

TOKYO, March 13, 2011

Japan’s nuclear crisis intensified on Sunday as authorities raced to combat the threat of multiple reactor meltdowns and more than 170,000 people evacuated the quake- and tsunami-savaged northeastern coast where fears spread over possible radioactive contamination.

Nuclear plant operators were frantically trying to keep temperatures down in a series of nuclear reactors — including one where officials feared a partial meltdown could be happening on Sunday — to prevent the disaster from growing worse.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano also said on Sunday that a hydrogen explosion could occur at Unit 3 of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex, the latest reactor to face a possible meltdown. That follows a blast the day before in the power plant’s Unit 1, and operators attempted to prevent a meltdown there by injecting sea water into it.

“At the risk of raising further public concern, we cannot rule out the possibility of an explosion,” Mr. Edano said. “If there is an explosion, however, there would be no significant impact on human health.”

RELEASE OF RADIOACTIVE STEAM WILL BE CARIED OUT :o

Earthquake in Japan shifted Earth’s axis and threatens a new Chernobyl http://abc.az/eng/news_12_03_2011_52313.html

Baku, Fineko/abc.az. After yesterday’s catastrophic earthquake in the commercial area of Japan the latter is shaken by repeated tremors (aftershocks) with 5-6.8 magnitude. The disaster consequences are marked throughout the world.

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s (JPL) specialist Richard Gross has stated that following the earthquake the Earth’s figure axis (the axis around which the Earth is balanced by mass) has shifted by about 15 centimeters – 2 times greater than after the Chilean earthquake of 2010.

“According to my calculations, the length of the day should be reduced to 1.6 microseconds (millionths of a second). The earthquake in Chile gave, in my opinion, a reduction of approximately 1.2 microseconds,” he said.

According to Gross, the Earth’s axis shifted to the 139th degree east longitude. After Chilean cataclysm in 2010 it shifted to 112th degree east longitude.

At one of the world’s largest nuclear power plants, which is located in Fukushima Prefecture, the radiation level is 1000 times higher than the permissible level. Authorities began evacuating the population, AS RELEASE OF RADIOACTIVE STEAM WILL BE CARIED OUT in order to maintain pressure in the reactor.

According to authorities, country’s 12 prefectures are plagued by 206 major earthquake-caused fires and the death toll has already far exceeded a 1,000 people. The authorities still find it difficult to make at least a rough estimate of the damage.

I REPEAT: "RELEASE OF RADIOACTIVE STEAM WILL BE CARIED OUT"

Japanese government fears meltdown at second Fukushima nuclear reactor
13/03/11, 9:39 am

THERE ARE NEW fears of a nuclear meltdown at the stricken Fukushima I nuclear power plant in Japan today, after authorities said they had begun to pump seawater into a second reactor at the plant.

The primary and backup cooling systems at the number 3 reactor were damaged in the aftermath of Friday’s earthquake and tsunami, and the plant’s operator TEPCO now fears that the temperatures in the reactor could result in a second hydrogen explosion, similar to that which destroyed a containment building around another reactor yesterday.

The government has warned that a meltdown at the number 3 reactor is now a distinct possibility.

That blast, at the number 1 reactor, is not thought to have damaged the reactor itself, with TEPCO insisting that the steel casing that houses the reactor itself remaining intact.

In spite of this, however, radioactive leakage has been observed near the site and a total of 19 people have now been hospitalised for radiation exposure.

Further reports suggested that a leak in the reactor had caused the co0ling fluid around the energy rods to leak out, briefly exposing the rods before new water could be pumped back inside.

Though the plant is relatively close to the seafront, thereby making sea water a fairly predictable source of emergency coolant, the tactic is a fairly unusual one – indicating the unprecedented gravity of the situation facing the plant.

Some air has been intentionally vented from the number 3 reactor building, in order to ease the pressure on the containment building and avoid a second explosion in as many days.

The International Atomic Energy Agency have begun distributing iodine tablets to those evacuated from the 20km exclusion zone around the plant, hoping to combat any radiation poisoning of the thyroid gland, which is particularly susceptible to such poisoning.

town of Onagawa, Miyagi prefecture, Japan, 13 March 2011. EPA/BGNES



A state of emergency has been declared at a Japanese nuclear facility at Onagawa after excessive radiation levels were recorded there following the major earthquake, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announced.

Onagawa has thus become the second nuclear power plant in Japan to have been affected by the consequences of the 9.0-magnitude earthquake that hit the country on Friday followed by a horrific tsunami. The town of Onagawa itself was devastated by tsunami.

The news about the emergency at Onagawa came as the country was already battling a feared meltdown of two reactors at the ageing Fukushima atomic plant.

An explosion at the Fukushima No 1 atomic plant blew apart the building housing one of its reactors on Saturday, a day after the biggest quake ever recorded in Japan unleashed a monstrous 10-meter tsunami.

The atomic emergency then widened as the cooling systems vital for preventing overheating failed at a second reactor, and the government warned there was a risk it too could be hit with a blast.

"There is the possibility of an explosion in the No 3 reactor," said Yukio Edano, the top government spokesman, while voicing confidence it would withstand the blast as the number-one reactor had the day before, as cited by The Australian.

Edano, the chief cabinet secretary, said earlier it was highly likely a meltdown had occurred in the first reactor, at the plant situated on the coast 250km north-east of Tokyo.

"As for the No 3 reactor, we are acting on the assumption that it is possible," he stated.

On Friday, as a result of the earthquake, there was a fire in a turbine building of the Onagawa Nuclear Power Plant, NPP, in Miyagi prefecture in the aftermath of the strongest ever earthquake to hit Japan. The NPP is owned by Tohoku Elec's.

The Shinmoedake volcano in Japan's Kyushu has erupted two days after the massive earthquake and tsunami that left more than 10,000 people dead, reports said on Sunday. There was no confirmation on whether the eruption was related to Friday's quake.

The volcano, which was dormant for several weeks after erupting on January 19, began spewing ash and rock on Sunday, Japan's meteorological agency said. The agency did not specify if the new eruption was related to the quake.

Japan tsunami survivor Hiromitsu Shinkawa found 10 miles out at sea

A 60-year-old man has been found on the roof of his floating house nearly 10 miles out at sea, two days after the tsunami that devastated the north-east coast of Japan.
Hiromitsu Shinkawa must have resigned himself to his fate when he was swept away by the retreating tsunami that roared ashore in his home town of Minami Soma in Fukushima prefecture.

IAEA Refutes Reactor 3 Cooling Problems, Provides Fukushima Status Update; Credibility Schism Developing In Japan
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/12/2011 20:56 -0500

Contrary to earlier reports that cooling at Reactor 3 at Fukushima has failed (as per CNN and Reuters) and there is now a state of emergency for three reactors at the site, the IAEA has released a report refuting these rumors. It appears that there is a split in news reporting in Japan: on one hand we have the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency which seems to present a downside case, while the government is obviously spinning news in a favorable direction. While the Japanese government is likely not to be trusted much with truthful data dissemination, jumping the shark on rumor spreading is probably not in anyone's favor either. That said, with the government losing credibility (see prior Stratfor post), the question is just whom can the public trust, if not the Japanese government and media? Furthermore, if there is another accident at Fukushima, and the government's credibility is completely destroyed, what happens next: after all the BoJ needs as much "market faith" as it can muster ahead of its decision on Monday to flood the money markets with JPY2 trillion (sound familiar). If the government eats up all the street cred of Shirakawa, the BOJ rush to action may end up doing far more bad than good.

As a former US NAVY Nuc (EO) and former US NAVY OC, I can tell you that Japan is officially F-CK-D!

If they are using seawater to cool the core, that is major!  Reactors use what they call "pure water" to cool the core.  It is Ph balanced and filtered clean water that is used to resist corrosion in the primary cooling system because even the slightest corrosion repairs are a major undertaking, given the irradiated environment.

Seawater contains salt and iodine.  Salt plus heat, extreme heat, equal hard core corrosion at extremely rapid rates.  If they put salt water in the core, they have no hope, no intention of EVER using that core again, for any reason.  The moment the salt water went through that core the first time, that core was totally ruined.

More importantly, the iodine.  Iodine become very radioactive and stays that way for a very, very long time, and a direct threat to anyone in even the most remote vacinity of it, as it can accumulate in the thyroid, and irradiate you to death over time!  If they pushed salt water, seawater, through that core, every drop of that water is a contamination nightmare, and loaded up with some of the worst radioactive materials known to man.

Let's re-count.  By pouring salt water into the core, they destroy the core, and create a radioactve nightmare with the water that flows through it.  That being said, the ONLY reason you would flow seawater through the primary side of your nuc plant is if you had no other choice to prevent a full scale melt down!!!  Follow?

The fact that they did have to flow seawater through the core meant that there is a leak in the primary that is greater than their ability to add make-up pure water. Depending on the location of the leak, they will have various options, but none of them are promising, and the mess they are making to prevent a meltdown is getting worse by the gallon of seawater being pumped into that core and becoming irradiated.  Worst case scenario is that the leak is on the core side of the main core shutoff valves, but regardless, many people are going to die, trying to fix this!

If 1 goes, they ALL go!  Who the hell is going to stick around a major nuclear disaster to keep the other 5 plants cool?  And what good will it do, when the radiation destroys the electical systems that support the cooling pumps for the other 5 reactors?  Even if the rooms of the other 5 reactors keep the radiation of core 1 out, core 1's radiation will destroy the electric circuits outside the building, and the lack of personel will cause a minor problem to become another meltdown and breech.

They are evacuating 170,000 people within 12 miles of the reactor.  They need to be evacuating anyone withing 100 miles of the reactor, and even then the death toll and future deformation toll will be huge!  GET OUT OF JAPAN!!!

Um... WTF?

EDIT: Seriously, wtf is going on here?!

I don't think those numbers look right!  A bit high.

A RAD is a measure of radiation intensity, and 1 REM of radiation is the measure of 1 RAD of radiation taken on the human body.

Loosely translated, 1 RAD=1 REM.   The NRC puts 1.5 REM (may have changed) or 1500 millirem, as the annual limit of occupational radiation exposure, with local limits usually around 500 millirem.

I would go back and look at the Chyrnobel maps, see how the radiation dispersed and use real time wind predictions to translate the old maps to the new crisis.  As each core breeches, multiply the radiation levels.  Ie if all 6 breech, chyrnobel times 6.

That map, if true, would make it a rolling death cloud where everyone would be instantly dead or very, very dying the moment they were hit by it.

1 RAD of exposure in a short amount of time can be deadly, 700 RADS, it would seem, would drop you dead pretty quick.

what if some people are more sensitive to radiation than others? About getting to the Pacific North West.

A pilot navigator friend told me this in regard to how quick this could get to the US / Canada Western border if caught in jet stream:

Quote
"Well that depends where the jet stream is that day (it moves a fair bit) but lets say that it did get in to it then it is about 4800 miles from Vancouver to Tokyo (West coast) and the jet varies in speed say 90 to 110 mph, so like maybe 50 hours at the quickest.. but if just using prevailing winds say 3-4 times that duration.. still not that very long."

Yup, its a desperate measure to cool the reactor.

I'm still shocked that its happening to a Japanese Reactor.
I'm still highly sceptical it was not SABOTAGE.

Now the identical reactors are OK, yet one goes rogue ?
That implies not a design fault...

It also implies not 'human error' as the shutdown is automatic.
To me that implies a COMPUTER FAULT.
Was it deliberately infected with a computer software nasty ?

All of these reactors are built from an identical design by General Electric.
Reactor No.1, 2, 6 supplied by General Electric
Reactor No.3 built by Toshiba

pdf_muncher, you didn't understand the magnitude of sea water resort. The core being rendered useless isn't the issue, it's the huge amount of particles dispersed in the sea water that have affinity towards radiation. Once charged they become hazardous toxic waste that will be a threat for EONS to come. The areas it contaminates will be rendered wastelands harbouring mutants.

Millions Of Americans Will Not Be Killed By Nuclear Fallout In Two Weeks, It's Just A Fake Map

By Darryl Mason

Australian Radiation Services finds itself inadvertently caught up in a fast spreading online hoax, following the unnerving explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, after yesterday's 8.9 earthquake and 10 metre tsunami.

The Nuclear Fallout Map is fake simply because Australian Radiation Services don't issue such maps. It was likely chosen before ARS offices are closed until Monday, as they are most weekends.

If they are using seawater to cool the core, ...

Have you seen this? Looks like a pretty comprehensive analysis of those particular reactors.  Conclusions quoted here.  Full analysis/explanation at the link below.

Quote
·   The plant is safe now and will stay safe.

·   Japan is looking at an INES Level 4 Accident: Nuclear accident with local consequences. That is bad for the company that owns the  plant, but not for anyone else.

·   Some radiation was released when the pressure vessel was vented. All radioactive isotopes from the activated steam have gone (decayed). A very small amount of Cesium was released, as well as Iodine. If you were sitting on top of the plants’ chimney when they were venting, you should probably give up smoking to return to your former life expectancy. The Cesium and Iodine isotopes were carried out to the sea and will never be seen again.

·   There was some limited damage to the first containment. That means that some amounts of radioactive Cesium and Iodine will also be released into the cooling water, but no Uranium or other nasty stuff (the Uranium oxide does not “dissolve” in the water). There are facilities for treating the cooling water inside the third containment. The radioactive Cesium and Iodine will be removed there and eventually stored as radioactive waste in terminal storage.

·   The seawater used as cooling water will be activated to some degree. Because the control rods are fully inserted, the Uranium chain reaction is not happening. That means the “main” nuclear reaction is not happening, thus not contributing to the activation. The intermediate radioactive materials (Cesium and Iodine) are also almost gone at this stage, because the Uranium decay was stopped a long time ago. This further reduces the activation. The bottom line is that there will be some low level of activation of the seawater, which will also be removed by the treatment facilities.

·   The seawater will then be replaced over time with the “normal” cooling water

·   The reactor core will then be dismantled and transported to a processing facility, just like during a regular fuel change.

·   Fuel rods and the entire plant will be checked for potential damage. This will take about 4-5 years.

·   The safety systems on all Japanese plants will be upgraded to withstand a 9.0 earthquake and tsunami (or worse)

·   I believe the most significant problem will be a prolonged power shortage. About half of Japan’s nuclear reactors will probably have to be inspected, reducing the nation’s power generating capacity by 15%. This will probably be covered by running gas power plants that are usually only used for peak loads to cover some of the base load as well. That will increase your electricity bill, as well as lead to potential power shortages during peak demand, in Japan.

A former adviser on radiation to the UK government, Dr Christopher Busby, has told the BBC the situation at the nuclear plants is extremely serious. "Particularly concerning is the [Fukushima] number three reactor which I understand is in trouble now, because... it runs on a different sort of fuel; it doesn't run on uranium, it runs on a mixed uranium plutonium fuel, and plutonium is an extremely serious hazard so if this stuff comes out then it's going to make what's happened so far, in terms of the tsunami damage, look a little bit like an entrée to the real course."

That analysis is pretty optimistic, and doesn't quite bare out with the facts on the ground.

1.  There has been 190 people reported to have rad exposure sickness.
2.  A second reactor is have complications now.
3.  The evacuation has been expanded from 6 miles and 80,000 people to 12 miles and 170,000 people.

The facts on the ground seem to indicate the situation is becoming MORE alarming, not less.

I have a sense of how he feels.  I cannot believe the media is downplaying this so much.  I guess they figure, "How do you evacutate an entire country?"  and lacking a solution, decide it's just better to lie.  This has major implications.  Japan is the world 4th largest economy.  Not any more!  They are about to be 3rd world, real quick.  There has been an MIT guy post an article, giving an opinion that is fairly optimistic, but given his credentials, and his background, I just can't believe that this is going to end well at all for the Japanese.

Defending Against the Next Stuxnet
http://www.automationworld.com/feature-7618
October 2010 (p.26)
Written by Wes Iversen, Managing Editor
           
 Experts agree that defense in depth is the best approach to guard against future cyber attacks targeting industrial control system networks. Here's a look at two emerging technologies that may provide added tools for defense-in-depth strategies.

The controls security community was rocked this summer by the discovery of the Stuxnet worm, the first known malware designed specifically to target an industrial control system (ICS). And now that one such worm has been found in the wild, many believe that others are certain to emerge.

“Someone has proven the concept that you can launch a targeted attack on an industrial control system carrying a control-system-oriented payload, and not only have they demonstrated it in theory, but they’ve actually done it. So I think it’s almost inevitable that we’re going to see more of these,” observes Eric Cosman, an engineering solutions information technology (IT) consultant at The Dow Chemical Co., Midland, Mich., who serves as co-chair of the International Society of Automation’s ISA99 Industrial Automation and Control Systems Security committee.

While Stuxnet specifically targeted control systems supplied by Siemens, the German industrial giant, the worm gained access by exploiting a previously unknown Microsoft vulnerability. And experts warn that any vendor’s control systems could become targets in the future, particularly given the prevalence of Microsoft technologies throughout the ICS space.

Tsunamis do not cause nuclear reactor meltdowns.

I disagree.  8.9 or 9.1, that is MASSIVE.  One of the most suspicious items in that Oherman article was the fact that he claimed the the Japanese will just start requiring their nuclear plants to standards that would hold against a 9.0 earthquake.  It's almost laughable, at the same time, I almost just drifted past it.  There is NO F-CK-N WAY that engineers are going to build major nuclear plants that will hold up against earthquakes that register 9.0.  NO WAY, NO HOW!  They are calling this the 5th largest ever recorded.  They say Japan raised up 8 feet (or inches, doesn't really matter), and the Earth's axis shifted 4 inches.  There isn't an engineering firm on the planet capable of producing a nuclear energy planet that will produce serious amounts of energy (electricity) AND be able to deal with movements like that.  This was an earthquake induced failure, and will likely set the globalists back fairly far if we can get on top of this!

Yup, the Japanese have tons of experience with earthquakes and tsunamis. They know how to design skyscrapers to withstand major earthquakes so they would also know how to build nuke plants to withstand being hit by tsunamis.

the tsunami didn't cause the damage at this reactor!  The 8.9-9.1 earthquake.  The 5th largest earthquake ever recorded.  And the Japanese could no more build a power plant to withstand that, then they could build a wall to hold back a 200' tidal wave.  Again, the Earth's axis shift 4 inches.  Can you see the power in that?  We are fleas on the dog!

Can anyone find out if they were using General Electric's Intelligent Platforms bullshit crapola software which runs very similar SIEMENS operations, dependent on Windows files which STUXNET can completely control...

GEIP Challenges Rockwell and Wonderware

GEIP Challenges Rockwell and Wonderware
Just how crowded the space between the plant floor and the enterprise level is becoming is indicated by last month's release of two new software applications from GE Intelligent Platforms (GEIP), the one offering 'out-of-the-box' integration of production systems with the enterprise, the other consolidation of disparate data from multiple sources into a single viewpoint. As such, they compete in the same space as, and appear to offer similar functionality to Invensys Operations Management (IOM)'s ArchestrA-based InFusion and Wonderware System Platform, SAP's Lighthammer and Rockwell's FactoryTalk and FactoryTalk VantagePoint, as InCuity is now called.

What that tends to suggest, despite claims from every vendor that their own system is a unique concept, is that these different offerings in what is variously called the MES or Operations Management space are rapidly converging and, dare one say it, becoming increasingly commoditized. Quite where that leaves such claims of competitive advantage as that from IOM CEO Sudipta Bhattacharya that "If someone wanted to launch or build similar products (to InFusion and ArchestrA), it would take them probably three to four years to get them to market" is clearly open to question.

Empowering Operators
Of the two new GEIP applications, arguably the most interesting is Proficy Pulse, described as a "new visualization software solution … which empowers operators, engineers and analysts to view, analyze and co-relate real-time operational situations and historical intelligence." Explaining the thinking behind the new software, GEIP automation software general manager Claire Cerrato said that today's operators need "to have access to as much operational information as they can get in the environment that they are most used to. Therefore, companies are looking for that 'ergonomic' HMI that presents operational data beyond the traditional HMI to analyze large volumes of data from many sources, making objective decisions based on complex, real-time information."

Another HMI?
Mention of Pulse as a real-time HMI will inevitably lead to speculation that, as well as its myriad other roles, it will also provide the vehicle for the eventual merging of GEIP's existing disparate HMI/SCADA applications, Proficy Cimplicity and Proficy iFIX. In the meantime, however, as a true OPC DA and OPC Alarms & Events client, it provides users with the ability to view and interact with real-time data from operational devices, HMI/SCADA systems and other software and to interface directly with native OPC servers like GEIP's own Industrial Gateway Server (IGS) and third-party OPC servers. Operators also have the ability to switch on the fly into Analysis mode with Proficy Historian and to integrate with the Proficy Workflow operational workflow product, Proficy Cause+ analysis tools and with operational KPIs defined in Proficy Plant Applications.
 
Designed as a scalable single application, multiple deployment product, Proficy Pulse can be deployed on embedded devices such as panels and tablets, on desktop PCs and on thin clients such as a Terminal Services client on bar codes or a Web client through the browser. It also comes with a totally integrated change management tool supporting application deployment, application versioning, disaster recovery and collaborative application development.

Meanwhile, the new enterprise integration tool, Proficy Open Enterprise 1.2, is built on top of Proficy SOA and Proficy Workflow and supports bi-directional messages to and from enterprise systems. Built on B2MML and ISA-95, it allows decision makers at the enterprise layer to have access to real-time information about production processes. "Proficy Open Enterprise helps users run 'Leaner' by providing information about the actual consumption of materials," said Operations Management Software general manager Sheila Kester. "Inventory reordering occurs when actually needed which can result in a significant cash savings."

STUXNET Worm & Microsoft Vulnerability Advisory 2286198

http://support.ge-ip.com/support/index?page=kbchannel&id=KB14079

Description
Microsoft Advisory 2286198 describes vulnerability in Microsoft Windows Shell. This vulnerability allows malicious actors to craft icons for .LNK files (shortcut links) such that when a user views a directory containing these links, the operating system can execute malicious code. The recently announced STUXNET worm is an example of malicious code that takes advantage of this vulnerability. The vulnerability exists in all Microsoft-supported operating systems (such as Windows 7), and in many if not all obsolete operating systems (such as Windows NT). While there is no known attack using this vulnerability to specifically attack GEIP software, we strongly recommend that users install Microsoft’s out-of-band patch (MS10-046) that repairs it. This patch exists for all supported Microsoft operating systems. For those customers who use obsolete operating systems, we recommend that they upgrade to a supported Microsoft operating system.

Yup, the reactors are built for this shit, just like the buildings that did not fall. But they are not built to withstand Stuxnet which is proven to cause meltdown scenarios. In the history of mankind concerning nuclear reactor meltdown scenarios...STUXNET is 100% effective whereas tsunamis and earthquakes are 0% effective.

This reminds me of 3 steel frame buildings collapsing at free fall speed in the history of mankind and the absurdity of it being fire.

Crisis going to waste issues are fairly dubunkable these days and using the logic of crisis going to waste...there is likely to be wholesale obstructions of justice. Since they do not want the crisis to go to waste...they must stop any investigation into Stuxnet, HAARP, sabotage, etc. So even if they are just trying to exploit millions of possibly dying people for personal gain, it would make sense to look at the likely causes of this "game changing" and "myth building" event. Especially if the ones exploiting the situation are covering it up.

Symantec releases new report on Stuxnet
WARNS ENERGY SECTOR TO BEWARE

http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/symantec-releases-new-report-on-stuxnet-warns-energy-sector-to-beware/
By: Molly McHugh  • February 15, 2011

As more information reveals the extent of Stuxnet's damage - and who may have been responsible - Symantec warns the power sector to look out.

Cyber security firm Symantec released its quarterly report yesterday, revealing that targeted attacks to steal company data have increased. The report specifically focuses on the Hydraq Trojan and the Stuxnet worm, and the damage they caused and concern for future attacks involving each.

“Past targeted attacks…are important because they demonstrate that there are vulnerabilities in critical infrastructure sectors – specifically, in the power and energy sectors. The Stuxnet attacks were the first ones that specifically targeted ICS (industrial control systems). This is significant because it is an actual event of what was formerly just a plausible scenario.”

In an interview with CNET, Symantec executive Ralph Langer says the targeted attacks using the Stuxnet virus were always intended “to destroy [Iran’s] centrifuges but also to lower the output of enriched uranium.” The security firm notes that these types of targeted attacks can easily be tied back to politics and government-led operations. The hardest hit facility was the Natanz nuclear plant in Iran, Langer says. The company also revealed earlier this year that of the more than 100,000 targeted organizations, 60 percent were Iranian. Additionally, 12,000 of the viruses were targeting only five hosts, industrial organizations located in the country.

And as news that the Stuxnet virus was intended to take down Iranian nuclear facilities surfaces, The Telegraph is reporting that Israel is inching towards claiming responsibility as the source. Israel has been a suspect, but according to the report, a video celebrating the military success of lieutenant general Gabi Ashkenazi’s features direct reference to his involvement with the Stuxnet worm. The video means the IDF may have unwittingly tied  itself closer to Stuxnet.

Aside to being increasingly careful with sensitive information, Symantec advises companies and organizations wary of attacks to limit Internet use. The report mentions energy and power industries are of particular concern. This warning comes shortly after a report from McAfee revealed that Chinese hackers may have launched cyberattacks targeting US energy firms last year.

When you say, "STUXNET causes this exact scenario?" do you mean, "Am I aware that STUXNET causes nuclear plants to fail and cause melt down?" then YES, I am aware that it does that exact thing!  However, there is more than one way to skin a cat, and one very good way to pop a nuclear reactor, is to shake it up, real hard, and break the cooling line on the core side of the of the main core shut off valve, such that you cause a catastophic loss of cooling to the core, which causes a breech,and/or leak radiation, which causes nearby cores to breech. and leak radiation.

So far, you have convinced me that it is possible to do it using STUXNET, but the facts on the ground sure look like an earthquake did the job just fine on its own.  No STUXNET needed.

But that is not a precision strike weapon whereas STUXNET is. The people that plan this stuff do not leave things to chance. How many times has an earthquake caused a nuclear reactor meltdown in the history of mankind?

How many times has STUXNET been able to create a nuclear reactor meltdown scenario. I mean whatever, believe what you like, I just find it odd that you would brush off this planned, exercised, drilled, and wargamed scenario when all of evidence shows the same thing.

While "they" may not leave things to chance, "they" can't control earthquakes that change our axis, or make nuclear reactors to withstand 8.9-9.1 quakes.  Just because "they" can, doesn't mean, they did make it happen, or could stop a different version of it from happening due to powers beyond their control.

Radiation level up at Japan Fukushima Daiichi nuke plant
March 14 | Sun Mar 13, 2011 6:49pm EDT
http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/03/13/japan-quake-radiation-idUSTFD00667020110313

(Reuters) - Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said on Monday the electric utility has reported a rise in radiation levels at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to the government.

The cooling system of the plant, located 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo, was damaged by Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami, forcing the operator to release radioactive air to reduce pressure inside reactor container vessels.

The exact radiation level on the site was not immediately available, a TEPCO spokeswoman said.

It's statements like these taht always make me suspicious.  Does anyone doubt our ability to detect radiation sources from satelites above?  Does anyone believe for a second that a nuclear radiation source like a 6 core faciity doesn't show up on a dozen screens in bases all over the world?

They know down to the millirem how much is being pumped out of that sight.  They just LIE!  For whatever reason they have.  Maybe the sight always put out too much radiation.  Maybe theres a horrible leak coming.  We will soon see.

Interesting article:

http://www.iaea.org/newscenter/statements/2010/amsp2010n008.html

Statement to 43rd Annual Conference of Japan Atomic Industrial Forum

Mr. Takashi Imai, President of the Japan Atomic Industrial Forum, Mr Yosuke Kondo, Parliamentary Senior Vice-Minister for Economy, Trade and Industry, Mr. Zenbee Mizoguchi, Governor of Shimane Prefecture, Mr. Masataka Matsuura, Mayor of Matsue-city, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is a special honour for me to address the 43rd Annual Conference of the Japan Atomic Industrial Forum.

For more than 50 years, the Forum has successfully promoted the peaceful, safe and efficient use of nuclear power in Japan, helping to make this country one of the most advanced users of nuclear technology in the world.

But the JAIF has always looked well beyond Japan´s borders and engaged actively in international cooperation. The presence of distinguished high-level participants from many different countries at this conference is testimony to that.

I commend the JAIF for its active support of the IAEA and involvement in a broad range of our activities. Japan is a generous supporter of newcomers to nuclear energy, sharing its expertise and experience and providing practical assistance. As Director General of the IAEA, I am especially grateful for this.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Today, I would like to speak to you about some of the challenges, as well as the opportunities, which we at the IAEA face in our work. The IAEA is widely referred to as the world´s "nuclear watchdog." As you know, this does not do justice to the full range of the activities of the IAEA. Since its establishment in 1957, the Agency has pursued two fundamental goals: preventing the spread of nuclear weapons and helping to make nuclear technologies available for peaceful applications, which includes technical cooperation.

I would like to focus on four main areas: nuclear power, nuclear safety and security, nuclear sciences and applications, and nuclear non-proliferation.

Nuclear Power

Let me start with nuclear power.

Nuclear power is enjoying growing acceptance throughout the world as a stable and clean source of energy that can help to meet energy needs and to mitigate the impact of climate change. More than 60 countries are considering introducing nuclear power to generate electricity. We expect between 10 and 25 new countries to bring their first nuclear power plants online by 2030.

The growth in nuclear power is attracting the attention of world leaders. In March, I addressed an international conference in Paris on access to civil nuclear energy, hosted by President Sarkozy. European Commission President Barrroso was also a speaker. In my talks with both leaders, I was encouraged by their commitment to making the benefits of peaceful nuclear technology more widely available throughout the world. I firmly believe that access to nuclear power should not be limited to developed countries alone. It should also be available to interested developing countries to help them lift their people out of poverty.

For some years now, the IAEA has been increasingly focussing on the needs of newcomers to nuclear power. Our goal is to assist them at every stage of the process. We provide them with advice on how to put the appropriate legal and regulatory framework in place and how to ensure the highest standards of safety, security and safeguards, as well as with know-how on the construction, commissioning, start-up and operation of nuclear reactors. The end-result, we hope, is that countries will be able to introduce nuclear power knowledgeably, profitably, safely and securely.

However, there is a limit to what the Agency alone can do to assist newcomers.

Japan has been a strong supporter of our work to help newcomers, providing extra-budgetary contributions and making cost-free experts available. Japan is one of the few countries which continued to build nuclear power plants even during the period of global stagnation in nuclear development. As one of the leading countries in the nuclear industry, it is very well-placed to share its technology and experience, accumulated over many years. Assisting newcomer States in establishing the legal and regulatory infrastructure and providing training for human development are key areas where Japan´s help can make a significant difference.

The Agency provides a useful platform and network through which Japan could play an even more proactive role in helping newcomer states. I welcome the leadership of Prime Minister Hatoyama in helping to move towards tangible progress in this regard.

The Agency, of course, continues to work closely with Japan concerning its own extensive nuclear energy activities. IAEA safeguards inspectors are kept so busy at Japan´s 55 nuclear power plants and numerous other facilities that it made sense for us to open a permanent office in Tokyo. Spent fuel management, waste disposal and decommissioning are just a few of the many other areas in which the IAEA and Japan work together. I know that many of you in this audience will, like me, be following with interest the construction of the Shimane 3 reactor not far from here.

Japan is at the forefront of innovation in nuclear technology which is essential for the future of the industry. I take a keen interest in research and development which will maximise energy efficiency, reduce risks to the environment and ease the burden on future generations of having to deal with nuclear waste.

Fast reactor technology, for example, has the potential to ensure that energy resources which would last hundreds of years with the technology we are using today will actually last several thousand years. Japan is a leader in this area. I look forward to the restart of the Monju prototype fast reactor before long.

Nuclear Safety and Security

Let me now turn to nuclear safety and security.

It is, of course, important that countries with new or expanding nuclear power programmes should ensure the highest standards of safety and security.

The Agency´s Safety Standards, which date back more than 50 years, have become the global benchmark and were adopted in a new Directive by the European Union last year. Nuclear safety has improved significantly since the shock of Chernobyl in 1986, but the risk of accidents can never be eliminated completely. We must always be vigilant.

Most of our safety work is accomplished through norm setting, peer reviews, advisory services, knowledge and experience sharing and support for capacity-building in Member States. Integrated Regulatory Review Service missions, for example, have been helping to improve regulatory effectiveness since 2006.

The Agency´s expert peer review missions have proven of immense value, bringing practitioners together to share experiences and best practices and identify weaknesses.

For obvious reasons, the issue of the seismic safety of nuclear installations is of special concern to Japan. The IAEA has been working in this area for several decades, carrying out several hundred expert missions to assess the specific needs of individual countries in seismic safety. Two years ago, we launched the International Seismic Safety Centre to help Member States in assessing external hazards such as earthquakes, as well as with site selection and evaluation. I appreciate Japan´s valuable contribution to the activities of the Centre and trust that this cooperation will continue. I also note with appreciation that Japan shared information with Member States about lessons learned from an earthquake which severely damaged the Kashiwasaki-Kariba nuclear power plant in 2007, and maintained a high level of transparency.

Helping to keep nuclear and radioactive materials secure is another growing area of our work.

Last week, I had the honour of attending the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, chaired by President Obama. Prime Minister Hatoyama participated at the Summit as one of the leaders from 47 countries and announced very important initiatives.

It was encouraging to see such top-level attention being given to protecting nuclear and radioactive material from falling into the hands of terrorists and guarding nuclear facilities against sabotage. It was also gratifying to see the widespread recognition of the Agency´s important work in this field.

The IAEA has steadily expanded its nuclear security programme since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States. Responsibility for nuclear security rests with each sovereign state, but the IAEA can assist countries in many ways. For example, we helped to protect against possible nuclear attacks at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and will do so again at the World Cup to be held in South Africa this year. After the recent tragic earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, the Agency helped to verify that no nuclear or radioactive material had gone missing.

We help countries to improve security at nuclear facilities and train border guards in how to detect smuggled nuclear material. We also maintain an Illicit Trafficking Database, the world´s most authoritative source of information on illicit trafficking and other unauthorised activities involving nuclear and radioactive material.

In their Final Communiqué at the Washington Summit, the heads of state and government reaffirmed the essential role of the IAEA in the international nuclear security framework and pledged to ensure that the IAEA has the resources to do its job properly.

I welcome Prime Minister Hatoyama´s statement at the Summit pledging Japan´s increased engagement in nuclear security through, among other measures, increased contributions to the IAEA nuclear security programme, and the establishment of the Integrated Support Centre for Strengthening of Nuclear Security in Asia.

Nuclear Sciences and Applications

A lesser known area of the IAEA´s activities is making advanced nuclear science and technology available to help Member States meet the basic needs of their peoples.

There are many examples. Cancer therapy is one. For my first year as Director General, I have chosen to highlight the fight against cancer in developing countries. It is not widely known that cancer has reached epidemic proportions in developing countries, where it kills 665 people every hour - nearly three times as many as in developed countries. Because of the absence of early diagnosis, most cases are detected too late for life-saving treatment. In many low-income countries, there is not a single radiation therapy machine. As a result, around 70 percent of global deaths from cancer occur in developing countries.

In September this year, we will organize a Scientific Forum devoted to cancer control in Vienna. I look forward to the participation of leading Japanese experts from the medical sector, industry and government.

Challenges in Non-Proliferation

Nuclear non-proliferation is, of course, the area of the IAEA´s work which attracts most attention. Our job is to verify that States are fully complying with their non-proliferation obligations.

The Agency has a number of important non-proliferation issues on its agenda at the moment in various regions of the world. Among these, North Korea´s nuclear programme remains a matter of serious concern in this region, as well as for the wider international community. As you may be aware, the DPRK ceased all cooperation with the Agency last year and asked our inspectors to leave. The Agency is no longer able to implement the ad hoc monitoring and verification arrangement in the DPRK.

I regard the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula as a matter of great importance. I hope that every effort will be made towards an early resumption of a diplomatic dialogue in a framework such as the Six Party Talks. The IAEA is ready to contribute to future verification arrangements if given the necessary legal authority and resources.

Conclusion

Finally, a few words on nuclear disarmament. The recent conclusion of a new START treaty between the Russian Federation and the United States is a welcome step towards a safe and peaceful world free of nuclear weapons. It is especially timely ahead of the 2010 Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, which I will attend in a few weeks´ time.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I have given you a very broad outline of the work of the IAEA.

I believe the Agency is most effective when it pursues its dual mandate - preventing the spread of nuclear weapons and supporting the peaceful use of nuclear technology, including technical cooperation - in a balanced manner. As Director General, I will strive to maintain that balance and ensure we meet the needs of all our Member States as effectively as possible.

A number of Member States support the Agency with its programmes. This is especially important as there is a limit to what the Agency alone can do to assist newcomer states. I emphasize to you, the representatives of the nuclear industry, that Japan can play an even more proactive role in helping global development in the areas of nuclear energy, health, the environment, water and safety.

Thank you.

In the debate about what we should do about global warming, the Public is frequently given the false and disingenuous choice between continuing with some form of coal; or nuclear power. Renewable energy is marginalized, and then not discussed. Misleading statements about environmentalists reconsidering the use of nuclear power abound -- just as fake advertising trumpeting, "Most doctors smoke Camel cigarattes" abounded when the tobacco industry was trying to confuse the public about the health risks of smoking. What has NOT received sufficient coverage in the media is that we currently possess a great deal of the technological know-how needed to begin creating an energy future that will be BOTH carbon free, and nuclear free -- and by the year 2050 acording to day's guest. Dr. Arjun Makhijani, President of the Inst. for Energy and Envirnmental Research in Takoma Park MD, will flesh out the details to this enormously important roadmap for a sane, sustainable and environmentally responsible US energy policy.

Nuclear Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing : the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership, with former Greenpeace activist Shaun Birnie of Scotland and Aileen Mioko Smith of Japan
May 14, 2007
Bush Administration plans for a "global nuclear energy partnership" is one of the backbones of revitalizing the nuclear industry in the US and abroad. And one of the main facets of this GNEP is the “reprocessing” of spent reactor fuel. Activists Aileen Mioko Smith of Japan and Shaun Birnie of Scotland explain the effects of reprocessing on the environment in Japan and Scotland; and why because of its proliferation potential reprocessing is an international security threat.

WE HAVE CONFIRMATION OF STUXNET IN JAPAN!

New cybervirus found in Japan
Stuxnet designed to attack off-line servers via USB memory sticks
http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national/T101004003493.htm
The Yomiuri Shimbun (Oct. 5, 2010)


Stuxnet, a computer virus designed to attack servers isolated from the Internet, such as at power plants, has been confirmed on 63 personal computers in Japan since July, according to major security firm Symantec Corp. The virus does not cause any damage online, but once it enters an industrial system, it can send a certain program out of control.  Symantec says the virus reaches the servers via USB memory sticks, and warns against the careless use of such devices.  Systems at power plants, gas stations and water facilities are not connected to the Internet to protect them from cyber-attacks.

A Symantec engineer who has analyzed the virus said it was made using advanced technology, and it is highly likely a well-funded organization, not an individual, produced it. The virus has spread throughout the globe via the Internet.  After Stuxnet finds its way onto an ordinary computer via the Internet, it hides there, waiting for a USB memory stick to be connected to the computer, when it transfers itself to the memory stick. When the USB device is then connected to a computer linked to an isolated server, it can enter the system and take control of it.  As computers that harbor Stuxnet do not operate strangely, the virus can be transferred to a memory stick inadvertently. According to the security company, the virus is designed to target a German-made program often used in systems managing water, gas and oil pipelines. The program is used at public utilities around the world, including in Japan.  The virus could cause such systems to act erratically, and it could take months to restore them to normal. The 63 infected computers found in Japan were likely infected sometime after June. According to the company, about 60 percent of the computers that have been infected with the virus were discovered in Iran. Since September, about 30,000 computers there have been found to be infected with the virus. The country's Industry and Mines Ministry has called the virus an electronic act of war. Some computers at the Iranian Bushehr nuclear power plant, which is scheduled to begin operation in October, have been infected with the virus.  A supervisor at the plant said the virus has not damaged the facility's main computer system and would not affect its planned opening. In Japan, no public utilities have been affected by the virus. Nevertheless, the Cabinet Office's National Information Security Center has urged electric power companies to exercise extreme care when using USB devices, and to scan any programs that may have been tampered with.

Yup, that in itself is a curious item which definitely should be looked into.

We can find connections in the most absurd places if we look hard enough.

HAARP, SDI, underground nukes sure as hell can. That is what our former SecDef says, go talk to him for information pertaining to this.

Don't fool yourself into thinking that "they" actually ARE gods.  They can't move heavens and earth, yet.

How did the buildings around the reactor do?

Take a look at the news.  Not very well, aparently.


BTW - you do realize that Chernobyl was sabotage right?

I've heard that said, never proved.  Sabotage or a severly underfunded over taxed energy plant running at risk.

Analysis: Seawater helps but Japan nuclear crisis is not over
13 March 2011
, By Scott DiSavino and Fredrik Dahl - New York/Vienna (Reuters)
http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/03/13/us-japan-quake-nuclear-seawater-idUSTRE72C40320110313

Excerpt:

Pumping seawater into troubled nuclear reactors in Japan should keep them from a catastrophic full-scale meltdown, but conditions are still so volatile that it is far too early to declare the emergency over, nuclear experts said.

It is probably the first time in the industry's 57-year history that seawater has been used in this way, a sign of how close Japan is to facing a major nuclear disaster following the massive earthquake and tsunami on Friday, according to the scientists.

Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) workers on Sunday were pouring seawater into two reactor cores at the coastal Fukushima Daiichi power plant and were considering using seawater on a third. Authorities have been forced to vent radioactive steam into the air to relieve pressure in the plant and reactors at the company's nearby Daini plant are also troubled.

Looks like STUXNET may have been used to hit another industry in Japan...the satellite industry...



Are Asian satellites being attacked by Stuxnet?
http://madmikesamerica.com/2010/10/are-asian-satelites-being-attacked-by-stuxnet/
by Holte Ender on Oct 11, 2010

During the second half of 2010 all three Asian space powers – China, India and Japan – suffered major satellite failures. Each failure is significant, but for different reasons. At the same time, it must be emphasized that satellite failures happen rarely.

What makes the loss of India’s Insat-4B in early July – the first Asian satellite to fail – so important is the possibility that the satellite fell victim to deliberate act of sabotage as the result of a cyber attack. This involves the very malicious “Stuxnet” worm.

In late August, the Japanese government reported that it lost its only operational synthetic aperture radar (SAR)-equipped surveillance satellite. Japan still maintains a fleet of three optical spy satellites. So, in bad weather or when night comes, Japan cannot conduct its own satellite surveillance operations.

Here again a power supply failure was the primary contributor to the satellite malfunction in question. Was there a Stuxnet connection? Thus far, malevolent software or a worm has not been mentioned as a potential source of the problem. But in late 2010, it cannot be ruled out entirely.

In early September, Chinasat-6A also known as Zhongxing 6A, ZX 6A, Sinosat-6, or Xinnuo 6 suffered a helium pressurization problem immediately after launch. This affected the operation and control of the satellite’s onboard fuel tank. For its owner, China Satellite Communications Corp of Beijing, it means that uncertainty about the operational status and projected life span of this new satellite is going to linger for some time.

The vast majority of satellites perform solidly, round-the-clock in a reliable fashion that is a source of pride for their builders. Thus, these lost Asian satellites represent the exception not the rule. Still, whether viewed as the victims of isolated mishaps or not, these errant satellites still send out powerful signals.

FEMA Emergency Managers Bill Sweeps Toward Final Approval While Japan In News

Under the disguise of 'financial emergency" this is how the 10 regions under FEMA is seizing state governments. Also the CIA, Army & other alphabet agencies are calling up a rare training exercise this month. Economic collapse imminent? See after 1st story.


In a party line vote, and despite impassioned speeches of protest by the body’s Democratic minority, the Michigan Senate approved legislation that threatens to take over and even dissolve local governments that refuse to balance their budgets by breaking labor contracts.

According to the law, which has already been approved in the House, the governor will be able to declare “financial emergency” in towns or school districts and appoint someone to fire local elected officials, break contracts, seize and sell assets, and eliminate services.

Under the law whole cities or school districts could be eliminated without any public participation or oversight, and amendments designed to provide minimal safeguards and public involvement were voted down.

An amendment to require Emergency Managers to hold monthly public meetings to let people know how they are governing was rejected by Senate Republicans, along with proposals to cap Emergency Manager compensation and require that those appointed to run school districts have some background in education.

General Electric-designed reactors in Fukushima have 23 sisters in U.S.
http://openchannel.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/03/13/6256121-general-electric-designed-reactors-in-fukushima-have-23-sisters-in-us
By Bill Dedman
Investigative Reporter, msnbc.com

The General Electric-designed nuclear reactors involved in the Japanese emergency are very similar to 23 reactors in use in the United States, according to Nuclear Regulatory Commission records.

The NRC database of nuclear power plants shows that 23 of the 104 nuclear plants in the U.S. are GE boiling-water reactors with GE's Mark I systems for containing radioactivity, the same containment system used by the reactors in trouble at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. The U.S. reactors are in Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Vermont.

In addition, 12 reactors in the U.S. have the later Mark II or Mark III containment system from GE. These 12 are in Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington state. See the full list below.


GE via NRC

GE's Mark I containment system.

(General Electric is a parent company of msnbc.com through GE's 49 percent stake in NBCUniversal. NBCUniversal and Microsoft are equal partners in msnbc.com.)

Msnbc.com sent questions Saturday to GE Energy, asking whether the Japanese reactors differed from those of the same general design used in the U.S.

A GE spokesman, Michael Tetuan, referred all questions to the Nuclear Energy Institute, an industry trade and lobbying group. Tetuan said GE nuclear staff members in Wilmington, N.C., are focused on assisting GE employees in Japan and standing by to help the Japanese authorities if asked to help. The NEI on Sunday confirmed that the figure of 23 is correct.

The six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, which had the explosion on Saturday, are all GE-designed boiling-water reactors, according to the anti-nuclear advocacy group Nuclear Information and Resource Service. The group says that five have containment systems of GE's Mark I design, and the sixth is of the Mark II type. They were placed in operation between 1971 and 1979.

A fact sheet from the group contends that the Mark I design has design problems, and that in 1972 an Atomic Energy Commission member, Dr. Stephen Hanuaer, recommended that this type of system be discontinued.

"Some modifications have been made to U.S. Mark I reactors since 1986, although the fundamental design deficiencies remain," NIRS said. The group has a commentary online describing what it says are hazards of boiling-water reactors: human invervention needed to vent radioactive steam in the case of a core meltdown, and problems with aging.

Since the earthquake struck Japan on Friday, the early statements by the industry's Nuclear Industry Institute have emphasized that only six plants in the U.S. have precisely the same generation of reactor design (GE boiling-water reactor model 3) as the first reactor to have trouble in Fukushima Daiichi. Problems then developed at different reactors of GE model 4.

But aside from the generation of reactor design, the following 23 U.S. plants have GE boiling-water reactors (GE models 2, 3 or 4) with the same Mark I containment design used at Fukushima, according to the NRC's online database:

   • Browns Ferry 1, Athens, Alabama, operating license since 1973, reactor type GE 4.

   • Browns Ferry 2, Athens, Alabama, 1974, GE 4.

   • Browns Ferry 3, Athens, Alabama, 1976, GE 4.

   • Brunswick 1, Southport, North Carolina, 1976, GE 4.

   • Brunswick 2, Southport, North Carolina, 1974, GE 4.

   • Cooper, Brownville, Nebraska, 1974, GE 4.

   • Dresden 2, Morris, Illinois, 1970, GE 3.

   • Dresden 3, Morris, Illinois, 1971, GE 3.

   • Duane Arnold, Palo, Iowa, 1974, GE 4.

   • Fermi 2, Monroe, Michigan, 1985, GE 4.

   • FitzPatrick, Scriba, New York, 1974, GE 4.

   • Hatch 1, Baxley, Georgia, 1974, GE 4.

   • Hatch 2, Baxley, Georgia, 1978, GE 4.

   • Hope Creek, Hancock's Bridge, New Jersey, 1986, GE 4.

   • Monticello, Monticello, Minnesota, 1970, GE 3.

   • Nine Mile Point 1, Scriba, New York, 1969, GE 2.

   • Oyster Creek, Forked River, New Jersey, 1969, GE 2.

   • Peach Bottom 2, Delta, Pennsylvania, 1973, GE 4.

   • Peach Bottom 3, Delta, Pennsylvania, 1974,  GE 4.

   • Pilgrim, Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1972, GE 3.

   • Quad Cities 1, Cordova, Illinois, 1972, GE 3.

   • Quad Cities 2, Moline, Illinois, 1972, GE 3.

   • Vermont Yankee, Vernon, Vermont, 1972, GE 4.

 

And these 12 newer GE boiling-water reactors have a Mark II or Mark III design:

   • Clinton, Clinton, Illinois, 1987, GE 6, Mark III.

   • Columbia Generating Station, Richland, Washington, 1984, GE 5, Mark II.

   • Grand Gulf, Port Gibson, Mississippi, 1984, GE 6, Mark III.

   • LaSalle 1, Marseilles, Illinois, 1982, GE 5, Mark II.

   • LaSalle 2, Marseilles, Illinois, 1983, GE 5, Mark II.

   • Limerick 1, Limerick, Pennsylvania, 1985, GE 4, Mark II.

   • Limerick 2, Limerick, Pennsylvania, 1989, GE 4, Mark II.

   • Nine Mile Point 2, Scriba, New York, 1987, GE 5, Mark II.

   • Perry, Perry, Ohio, 1986, GE 6, Mark III.

   • River Bend, St. Francisville, Louisiana, 1985, GE 6, Mark III.

   • Susquehanna 1, Salem Township, Pennsylvania, 1982, GE 4, Mark II.

   • Susquehanna 2, Salem Township, Pennsylvania, 1984, GE 4, Mark II.

Deputy Jake Hannah, a good guy who does well as substitute big brother for Corrine's young son Campbell Maguire, was already having another bad day in his private life, with his girl friend, the sheriff's daughter, telling she has enough of him failing to set a wedding date, when he is called in on duty because the only notable installation in his small West-Tennessee town, the nuclear plant, is hit by a small tornado; it's Saturday, so there's only a skeleton crew headed by supervisor Corrine Maguire, which despite good intentions causes dangerous mistakes. Things get much worst fast because two more twisters appear, ravaging even strong buildings in the whole area. Jake is bravely searching and rescuing people, including Campbell, while in the plant the cooling system goes down and contact with the experts is broken off.

Spinning like a washing machine-if it wasn't such a serious situation-it would be laughable. They said this stuff "oh it's fine-oh it's just steam-oh nothing is wrong" with straight faces. Unbelievable.

Nuclear Hurricane

(TV 2007)

A "highly sophisticated computer system" at a nuclear power plant goes crazy. To make matters worse, it develops a capacity for reason and malice while a tropical island storm is blowing into town.


This movie was given $1.5 Million and it was 100% bullshit...but it allows all the narrative building. Just look at a review of this thing...who authorized it?

______________

I do believe this is actually the worst film i have ever seen! The acting is awful, I cant understand why anybody would pay for someone to act this bad! I think the previous review sums the film up perfectly so I won't talk about the plot! I just felt the need to write this short review to warn anyone else not to waste their time! There was even some parts where I wasn't even sure if this was taking itself seriously or if it was a spoof! But seemingly it is taking itself seriously which is the worrying thing! It also seems like they have taking ideas from a handful of other films and ended up with a cliché ridden load of rubbish. Need I say any more...?

the NYTimes suggests that they're having trouble getting sea water into reactors

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/14/world/asia/japan-fukushima-nuclear-rea...

 

"To pump in the water, the Japanese have apparently tried used firefighting equipment — hardly the usual procedure. But forcing the seawater inside the containment vessel has been difficult because the pressure in the vessel has become so great.

One American official likened the process to “trying to pour water into an inflated balloon,” and said that on Sunday it was “not clear how much water they are getting in, or whether they are covering the cores.”

The problem was compounded because gauges in the reactor seemed to have been damaged in the earthquake or tsunami, making it impossible to know just how much water is in the core."

Is there any real intel out there saying they were hit by a Stuxnet attack? How would someone get into the facility to load it on their systems?

I am finding the Stuxnet bit very unlikely, no matter how plausible.   Batteries lasted 8 hours, no generators to cool them, last ditch effort to pump sea water into the containment units/reactors. Without power, and without generators, you have to use another method to get the water into the containment units.  The reactors have not failed as of yet, however the two containment towers have blown their tops.

Remember the reactors shut down right after the quake. So there is a reduced chance of meltdown, but it could still happen. Hopefully it is brought under control. The circumstances in which they are trying to cool them down and unprecedented, situation never seen before. Sure they may have trained for such a scenario, but ... the real training occurrs when you are actually in the event.

Nature Unleashed: Earthquake
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363586/
(Video 2005)

An earthquake destroys a Russian Nuclear Power plant.

Storyline

JOSH, 40's, a respected engineer, is asked by his company to inspect a Nuclear Power plant in Russia. He's reluctant to go, but when he discovers there has just been a minor earthquake in the region he's on the first plane out. The reason for his change of heart? His ex-wife, RACHEL, works at the plant, and his kids, DYLAN, 17, and CHERIE, 14, are living in the area. Upon arriving in Russia, he's taken on a tour of the power plant by EMILIO, the manager of the facility. He finally meets up with Rachel, only to receive the cold shoulder. She's busy checking the nuclear core after the tremor, concerned that there might be a leak in the coolant system that's causing it to overheat. That night Josh studies the readouts from the plant and discovers an anomaly. The core does seem to be overheating.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/03/14/us-japan-quake-explosion-idUSTRE72D0GZ20110314

It seems pretty fricken obvious to me that if they aren't confirming it, the reason is that the answer is YES.

A horror movie that's all too real
http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion/a-horror-movie-thats-all-too-real/story-e6frezz0-1226020699122
From: The Daily Telegraph  March 14, 2011 12:00AM

IT ALMOST reads like the plot from a B-grade 1950s horror movie: following an earthquake in Japan, fears rise of radiation leaks from damaged nuclear plants but the events in Japan are far more terrifying and tragic than any movie.  Incredibly, the nuclear nightmare at Fukushima Daiichi Power Station is only a part of Japan's shocking story. In ordinary circumstances, a potential atomic meltdown anywhere on earth would be of overwhelming singular interest. Circumstances in Japan, however, are anything but ordinary. The town of Minami Sanriku is gone. Japanese television showed before-and-after pictures as the extent of the demolition became clear. Before Friday's earthquake and subsequent tsunami, it was an attractive seaside town popular among weekend tourists. After, only a handful of buildings remain. Up to 10,000 residents are missing. Ground-level footage emerged over the weekend depicting the frightening force of the tsunami's arrival at Kesennuma, where stoic residents watched from a railway station platform as the entire seafront was broken into pieces and swept away. That force literally changed the planet, which was shifted on its rotational axis by about 10cm. The main island of Japan itself has moved by nearly 2.5m, according to GPS data. By comparison to other historic quakes, experts calculate that this event unleashed more than 30 times the energy of the devastating 1906 San Francisco earthquake, which killed 3000 people, and more than 8000 times the energy of last month's Christchurch disaster. The bravery and poise of the Japanese in the face of this horror is remarkable.

For a sanity check...STUXNET was already found in dozens of computers throughout Japan. Warnings were issues to iindustries, especially the energy industry. Additionally, STUXNET is the prime suspect in sabotaging 3 Asian Satellites, lastly...CSIS declared Japan a nuclear threat with their ability to build a nuclear bomb within one year. STUXNET was used on Iran for having the capability to build a bomb supposedly within 5 years. In the history of mankind, an earthquake has never caused a nuclear reactor meltdown. And in that same history, STUXNET is 100% effective in bringing about the conditions to cause a meltdown. 0% v. 100% seems kind of a lopsided scale to me. But STUXNET is simply a term used to describe electronic sabotage of industrial controllers which is the most effective way to cause a meltdown. And, after what happened in Iran, it is mind blowing to think that a TOTAL REVAMP of all nuke facilities was not done tearing out all of those fricking SIEMENS/GE/HITACHI controllers.

Shit, Japan just got hit with industrial sabotage when their acceleration electronic controllers were sabotaged. They are under attack and have been since they declared 9/11 to be an inside job and have been trying to kick out the Rothschild/Rockefellers.

The Sequel...



10.5: Apocalypse
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10.5:_Apocalypse
General Electric/NBC 2006

10.5: Apocalypse is a 2006 television miniseries written and directed by John Lafia. A sequel to 2004's 10.5,

the film follows a series of catastrophic seismic disasters (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami, and sinkholes).

The film centers around the occurrence of a huge 10.5 Earthquake in Los Angeles (which destroys the entire city) triggering a massive tsunami that destroys most of Hawaii, and ancient fault lines throughout the entire continent becoming active once again, eventually resulting in an earthquake which creates a split in the midwest, beginning at the Hudson Bay, going through the entire continent of North America, and ending in the Gulf of Mexico, nearly destroying the nuclear plant in Red Plains, Texas; thereby splitting the United States and Canada in half.

In NBC's high-octane thrill ride "10.5: Apocalypse", the deadly seismic activities that peaked with a 10.5 earthquake and devastated the West Coast in the first miniseries have altered the core structure of the earth and now threaten to jeopardize North America and the Western hemisphere, causing catastrophic events. Filmed exclusively on HD, "10.5: Apocalypse" achieves a whole new level of visual affects and style that has not previously been achieved on network television.

In a desperate bid to save lives and the country President Hollister (Emmy-Award and Golden Globe winner Beau Bridges, "The Ballad of Jack and Rose") calls once again upon one of the nation's top seismologists, controversial scientist Dr. Samantha Hill (Emmy-Award winner Kim Delaney, "NYPD Blue" and "CSI: Miami") and her supervisor and former boyfriend Dr. Jordan Fisher (David Cubitt, "Medium").

Shit Just Happens.

Japanese scientists, technologists and engineers are the best in the world, stupid Likudnik FALSE FLAG terrorists don't even have the brains to paint a dummy pilotless drone airplane to hit the Pentagon correctly.

The mistake is in a defectively wasteful reactor design that cannot self-utilize the energy wasted in it's own proper shutdown sequence in emergencies. Their fault was hubris, they mistakenly counted on having external power sources to keep shutdown cooling systems (and shutdown cooling system backups) within operational limits despite simple (rather than overall)  failures

The failure of primary removed-fuel shutdown cooling results in a catch-22 - they need power to use a secondary cooling system to cool down the primary system once it overheats! They never anticipated such a general-doomsday situation.

You can't generate power with radioactive steam from not enough water removing excess heat in withdrawn fuel bundles (a simple thermocouple "pig" heat-power convertor could have done that job). it was supposed to have been exchanged-off (heat wasted to sea water) during a powered cooling process.

Nuclear Power Market Recovers

2011-01-17

The global market for nuclear power plants is seen recovering, and two Japanese-linked firms are hoping to lead the rebound.

In energy-dependent Japan, nuclear plant utilization at 10 power firms last year stood near 70 percent, while U.S. demand for new plants has been limited due to moderation in fossil fuel prices.

Japan is the world's No. 3 nuclear generator, after the United States and France.

Hitachi and GE joined forces in 2007 in the U.S. and Japan to tap growing demand, with each owning a majority stake in joint ventures in their own country.

The firms are aiming for 38 nuclear plant orders, while GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy expects new plant construction this decade from northern Europe because of commitments to reduce CO2 emissions.

The hazard in the New Madrid Seismic Zone results mostly from the weak alluvium of the Mississippi Embayment. Due to the large quantity of sediments, the intensity of the shaking is very large and wide-spread. As seen you can see in the figure below, an earthquake in the NMSZ of the same magnitude as in California, would affect a much larger area. (Image links to original article (http://www.geo.arizona.edu/geo5xx/geos577/projects/muhlenkamp/hazards.htm))
Earthquake effect comparison
(http://frackingarkansas.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/charleston1895.gif?w=437&h=281)

In 1811 and 1812 the New Madrid fault suffered a series of catastrophic earthquakes that caused enormous damage and loss of life.

Earthquakes that occur in the Mew Madrid Seismic Zone potentially threaten parts of seven American states: Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. Because of the large region that a New Madrid earthquake would affect, the USGS ranks the region as a high hazard.

There is much debate about the magnitude of the 1811/1812 earthquakes and there are ‘official’ views and views of those who believe that the seriousness of those earthquakes has been played down by the authorities.

HAARP Attack Episode Recap

Episode Recap
Synopsis
Parker must prevent a terrorist plot to have American planes bomb a U.S. command center in Saudi Arabia, but an accident during the Backstep makes things go a little crazy.

Full Recap
The Alpha team heads off to NORAD for an inspection while in Turkey terrorists take over a HAARP radar base. They scramble communications to a bomber squadron and send encoded signals ordering them to attack Iraqi soldiers who have supposedly taken over a base in Saudi Arabia. The terrorists blow up themselves and the HAARP base rather than be captured after the point of where the bomber squadron is under orders to ignore all verbal commands. The U.S. is forced to shoot them, but only manage to stop two bombers and the other four rain down devastation, killing over 1200 people, while the Backstep team look on at NORAD. The commander of the squadron shoots himself afterward.

The team prepares to Backstep but they used the HAARP system to navigate and have to reprogram. The trip goes awry when Frank mentally reverts to the age of 10. The team catches up to him and brings him in and he remembers Olga, but he can't remember much else. The terrorist go ahead with their plan while Olga manages to get Frank to tie into his scrambled memories of the original timeline, snapping him out so he can finish briefing the team and stop the terrorists, but not in time. Remembering from the original timeline, Frank manages to have a crewman's wife call in with enough information to get him to call off the bombing.

TOKYO, March 14 (Reuters) - U.S. warships and planes helping Japan's earthquake and tsunami relief efforts have moved away from the country's Pacific coast temporarily because of low-level radiation from a stricken nuclear power plant, the U.S. Navy said on Monday.


http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/03/14/japan-quake-usa-idUSTKB00732920110314 (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/03/14/japan-quake-usa-idUSTKB00732920110314)

Would like to see what is considered low level -- they must have geiger counters on the boats -- tell us what they are reading.

Why? Don't they take their war criminal Depleted Uranuim crime weapons and criminal nukes with them?

They must just be worried about another quake washing them onshore and the Japanese getting their criminal nukes.

This isn't a meltdown of a running fission reaction, it's the lack of cooling the fuel rods properly after reaction has ceased. It will only damage the fuel and make lotsa mildly 'dirty' steam when the unpowered cooling systems blow.

The Chain Reaction
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080513/plotsummary

An earthquake in rural Australia causes a dangerous leak at WALDO, a nuclear waste storage facility. Heinrich Schmidt, an engineer badly hurt in the accident, knows that the leak will poison the groundwater for hundreds of miles around, and wants to warn the public. His boss, however, is only interested in protecting himself, and believes the accident should be covered up, even at the expense of thousands of lives.

Three nuclear plants now in meltdown:
Fukushima,
Onagawa -200 miles from Tokyo
Tokai - 75 miles north of Tokyo

Reeling from earthquake & tsunami,
Japan facing crises at three nuclear plants and yet another quake

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/2011/03/14/2011-03-14_the_battered_now_face_nuke_fears.html

DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Monday, March 14th 2011, 4:00 AM

Scientists struggled to avert or contain meltdowns at three nuclear plants on Sunday as Japan reeled from an epic triple disaster that killed thousands.

An explosion at the crippled Fukushima atomic plant was reported Sunday night, the second blast at the facility since Saturday.

TV footage showed a massive column of smoke belching from the plant's No. 3 unit. Officials said at least six workers were injured in the hydrogen explosion.

"The earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear incident have been the most severe crisis since the war ended 65 years ago," Prime Minister Naoto Kan told the nation.

"I'm convinced that we can overcome the crisis by joining together."

The scale of the disaster was coming into focus as rescuers found whole towns wiped off the map. And a humanitarian catastrophe was brewing among survivors left without food, water or shelter - and no roads to get supplies to them.

As many as 1.5 million people were without water and power as snow fell in the north.

Strong aftershocks continued to shake traumatized survivors, and the Japanese meteorological agency warned grimly that there was a 70% chance of a 7.0 quake - the magnitude that leveled Haiti last year - in the next three days.

Chief government spokesman Yukio Edano had earlier said that if another explosion did occur at the Fukushima facility, "there would be no significant impact on human health."

A meltdown is believed to have occurred in one, or possibly two, reactors at the plant. Experts say the nuclear core was contained by steel housing at the plant, 170 miles from Tokyo.

Problems were reported at two other nuclear plants :

- A state of emergency was declared yesterday at a nuclear plant in Onagawa, 200 miles from Tokyo, after high radiation levels were detected outside the plant. The levels soon returned to normal, officials said.

- A cooling system pump stopped working at the Tokai nuclear power plant, 75 miles north of Tokyo, Japan's Fire and Disaster Management Agency said. Officials said backup systems were working.

About 200,000 people living around the Fukushima plant were evacuated.

Japanese public broadcaster NHK told evacuees to cover as much skin as possible and keep a wet towel over their noses and mouths. Rescuers were distributing iodine tablets.

"First I was worried about the quake," said Kenji Koshiba, a construction worker evacuated from his home near the plant. "Now, I'm worried about radiation."

American officials rushed toassure the West Coast that "harmful levels of radioactivity" won't be blowing in from Japan.

"All the available information indicates weather conditions have taken the small releases from the Fukushima reactors out to sea away from the population," the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in a statement.

The official death toll from Friday's earthquake and 33-foot tidal wave stood at 2,000, but several towns of 10,000 people had simply vanished, suggesting the final toll will grow dramatically.

In the port town of Minamisanriku alone, 9,500 were missing. Half a million people were living in temporary shelters.

Japanese authorities upgraded the quake to magnitude 9.0, making it twice as powerful as originally thought and the fourth-strongest earthquake worldwide since 1900.

Adding to the misery, the Japanese stock market reopened today and immediately plunged 5%, threatening the country's already fragile economy.

Help was pouring in from around the world. As many as 70 countries offered everything from nuclear experts to body-sniffing dogs to blankets.

American Seahawk helicopters delivered thousands of pounds of rice and bread to people in the worst-hit areas as the Pentagon's Operation Tomodachi - Japanese for "friendship" - got underway.

Even the Afghan city of Kandahar, one of the world's poorest, sent $50,000 to the "brothers and sisters" of Japan.

It was the case with the volcano in Iceland, the now famous Joe Küll.
I saw pictures of lightning on that volcano.
Don't ask me for links. I lost them. It's already long ago.

As for the Bible and doomsday religion stuff - no thanks... I don't buy it.

Good show by Alex last evening (my time). He made it clear that nature is zillion times more powerful than these humans playing Gods with HAARP and other such devices. He earns all my respect.

Yes, Alex gave a little geology tutorial - it was the solar flare and the moon that caused the earthquake. It was mother nature, who has more power than the globalists. His comments were in sync with Rense, who also believes the sun and moon did it. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6w1fwXj6No)

He spoke more about the effects of radiation and the Japanese government's response. That reminds me of the 'shock and awe' response of the public after the 911 false flag. Everyone was focused on the rescue and recovery, while the mainstream media spun out the narrative. By the time anyone got around to focusing on the 'who' and 'why' - the official story was solidly embedded in everyone's mind. They had it all carefully constructed, so that to this day we are still fighting the mockingbird media story that was skillfully planted in everyones subconscious. Do we think they wouldn't do this again? This time using a weapon even more suited to a 911-style attack - and more convenient because instead of Al Qaeda, (and the messy passport business, the long backstory that had to be constructed) we have the sun and the moon to blame.

I think Alex and his staff should take a harder look at this: consider the capabilities of HAARP, and the fact that there are reasons (modus operandi) why the psychopaths might want to launch a HAARP attack on Japan:

The fact that Japan has been trying to pry the US military out of their country (http://www.japaninc.com/node/2920); or to the fact that a Japanese minister questioned the 'official' 911 story (http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/january2008/130108Japanese.htm).

The fact that Japan has an interest in rebuilding their military (http://tucsoncitizen.com/morgue/2006/09/29/27739-japanese-pm-wants-more-leeway-on-military-matters/) (something they've been forbidden to do since WWII).

The fact that the Japanese have developed nuclear facilities (http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/inf79.html) that provide them with enough power to fuel their extremely productive industrial economy, and they have plans to assist Kazakstan in building nuclear power (http://silkroadintelligencer.com/2010/02/21/japanese-investors-in-talks-to-build-nuclear-power-plant-in-eastern-kazakhstan-governor/) plants.

The fact that Japan might be developing their own nuclear arsenal (spurred by the incoming missiles from North Korea), because they want to keep their own country safe, and lessen their dependence on the US. The fact that in early 2010, the Japanese offered to provide IRAN with enriched uranium to help them develop nuclear power plants - but that wouldn't be a concern to the US empire, right? (http://www.thenewamerican.com/index.php/world-mainmenu-26/asia-mainmenu-33/3016-japan-offers-to-enrich-uranium-for-iran)

The fact that Japan, who buys Iranian oil, agreed to pay for that oil in YEN, instead of US dollars. (http://www.upi.com/Science_News/Resource-Wars/2007/09/10/Analysis-Iran-moves-to-ditch-US-dollar/UPI-69901189462065/)

Oh and there's the fact of our debt to Japan. Japan is second only to China in holding US debt (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/18/AR2008111803558.html).  But THAT's no reason to think the US empire would have modus operandi to attack Japan and break their economy.

And finally, the fact that you would have to believe they developed HAARP only for show, created it only to intimidate anyone who presented a threat to the empire. You would have to believe they would never use it, in spite of what former US Defense Secretary William Cohen said about weapons that could "set off earthquakes". You would have to be a coincidence denier to think that the US empire had any reason to think about using HAARP to attack Japan.

http://www.defense.gov/transcripts/transcript.aspx?transcriptid=674

Sec. of Defense William J. Cohen:
 ... "The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops."...

"Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism
whereby they can alter the climate,
set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely

through the use of electromagnetic waves.

So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways
in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason
why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important."

This is how HAARP can detect intense tectonic/volcanic activity - quartz layers in rocks generate massive electrical static high voltage spikes that ionize the entire plate and atmosphere above it. These charges are changing the actual local neutral electrical "ground" potentials or making huge lightning spikes prior to or during/after the actual events. This piezo electricity is what lights flint-less spark sources like those little disposable lighters or barbecue ignitors, tectonic "hammers" and rock breaks do the same thing underground.

Those with secret criminal, secret advance criminal knowledge of these things and powerful explosives can easily make/engineer themselves greater quakes out of small ones.

Unless it's a surprise party all secrecy is always either corrupt (bluff) or criminal - at least in public governance...

Chavez and the Russian Fleet: U.S. Used “Earthquake Weapon” On Haiti
http://www.infowars.com/chavez-and-the-russian-fleet-u-s-used-earthquake-weapon-on-haiti/
Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com January 23, 2010

Earlier this week, a Spanish newspaper quoted Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez as saying the U.S. Navy caused the Haiti earthquake with a tectonic weapon. The Venezuelan media reported that the earthquake “may be associated with the project called HAARP, a system that can generate violent and unexpected changes in climate,” Press TV reported on January 21. Chavez cited a report from Russia’s Northern Fleet. According to the report, the U.S. Navy made a mistake with a secret “earthquake weapon” and the result was the Haitian earthquake. The Russians believe the intended target was Iran. “Though Russian Northern Fleets’ report was not confirmed by official sources, the comments attracted special attention in some US and Russian media outlets including Fox news and Russia Today,” writes Pragmatic Witness blog. “Russia Today’s report said that Moscow has also been accused of possessing and utilizing such weapons.” “Speaking on his weekly television show, Chavez opined that the U.S. mission in Haiti was a ruse to initiate military occupation,” the New York Daily News said. Venezuelan media “added that the U.S. government’s HAARP program, an atmospheric research facility in Alaska (and frequent subject of conspiracy theories), was also to blame for a Jan. 9 quake in Eureka, Calif., and may have been behind the 7.8-magnitude quake in China that killed nearly 90,000 people in 2008,” Fox News reported on Thursday. In 1997, former U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen made the following statement:

Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves… So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts.

Cohen was talking about longitudinal EM wave interferometers (LWI) technology (also known as “Tesla howitzers”). LWI waves can effortlessly pass through the ocean and earth. Experts claim LWI waves can in fact pass through the earth and emerge on the other side. The United States and Russia have possessed this technology for decades. Cohen would have you believe it is a technology that only terrorists would use. It depends on who you would call a terrorist.

In 1966, Professor Gordon J. F. MacDonald, associate director of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at the University of California, Los Angeles, was a member of the President’s Science Advisory Committee. MacDonald published papers on the use of environmental-control technologies for military purposes, including “earthquake engineering” (he also wrote about weather manipulation, climate modification, polar ice cap melting or destabilization, ozone depletion techniques). “The revealed secrets surprised legislators,” writes Dr. Nick Begich. “Would an inquiry into the state of the art of electromagnetic manipulation surprise lawmakers today? They may find out that technologies developed out of the HAARP experiments in Alaska could deliver on Gordon MacDonald’s vision because leading-edge scientists are describing global weather as not only air pressure and thermal systems, but also as an electrical system.” Jesse Ventura detailed the HAARP program on his popular truTV show Conspiracy Theory:

Q: Let me ask you specifically about last week's scare here in Washington, and what we might have learned from how prepared we are to deal with that (inaudible), at B'nai Brith.

A: Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we've learned in the intelligence community, we had something called -- and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops.

State earthquake exercises would occur in 2011 regardless of NLE scenario
Scenarios for NLE 2010 and NLE 11 switched
Planning for NLE 11 began at state level well before Federal level

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy Names New Leader of Nuclear Fuel Cycle Business
http://www.gepower.com/about/press/en/2009_press/102809.htm

WILMINGTON, N.C.—October 28, 2009—GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) today announced the appointment of Kevin Walsh as senior vice president of GEH’s global nuclear fuel cycle operations and CEO of Global Nuclear Fuel (GNF), the nuclear fuel joint venture of GE, Hitachi and Toshiba.

Walsh succeeds Lisa Price, who was named general manager of corporate business development for GE in China, effective October 19. Walsh, a 25-year GE veteran, has served as senior vice president for nuclear services for the past three years.

In his new role, Walsh assumes leadership of all nuclear fuel cycle activities for GEH and GNF, which includes boiling water reactor fuel fabrication, mixed oxide (MOX) fuel design and component supply, fuel engineering services, advanced reactor and fuel recycling technologies, uranium enrichment and isotopes.

GNF operates fuel fabrication facilities in Wilmington and Kurihama, Japan, and also has a European BWR fuel joint venture with Enusa Industrias Avanzadas, S.A. (ENUSA) of Spain.

===============================

Here's GE (via MSNBC), telling us their vulnerable nuclear plants in Japan have "sister" plants in the US:

General Electric-designed reactors in Fukushima have 23 sisters in U.S.
By Bill Dedman
Investigative Reporter, msnbc.com
http://openchannel.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/03/13/6256121-general-electric-designed-reactors-in-fukushima-have-23-sisters-in-us

The General Electric-designed nuclear reactors involved in the Japanese emergency are very similar to 23 reactors in use in the United States, according to Nuclear Regulatory Commission records.

The NRC database of nuclear power plants shows that 23 of the 104 nuclear plants in the U.S. are GE boiling-water reactors with GE's Mark I systems for containing radioactivity, the same containment system used by the reactors in trouble at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. The U.S. reactors are in Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Vermont.

In addition, 12 reactors in the U.S. have the later Mark II or Mark III containment system from GE. These 12 are in Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington state. See the full list below.

(General Electric is a parent company of msnbc.com through GE's 49 percent stake in NBCUniversal. NBCUniversal and Microsoft are equal partners in msnbc.com.)

Msnbc.com sent questions Saturday to GE Energy, asking whether the Japanese reactors differed from those of the same general design used in the U.S.

A GE spokesman, Michael Tetuan, referred all questions to the Nuclear Energy Institute, an industry trade and lobbying group. Tetuan said GE nuclear staff members in Wilmington, N.C., are focused on assisting GE employees in Japan and standing by to help the Japanese authorities if asked to help. The NEI on Sunday confirmed that the figure of 23 is correct.

Fukushima reactor receives MOX

FUKUSHIMA (Kyodo) Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Saturday loaded a nuclear reactor in Fukushima Prefecture with MOX, a controversial fuel made with reprocessed plutonium and uranium oxides, as it prepares to become the leading power utility's first facility to go pluthermal.

The No. 3 reactor at Tepco's Fukushima No. 1 plant will be the nation's third pluthermal facility, but only the first to be refurbished since the plant was built 34 years ago.

Tokyo Electric plans to activate the reactor on Sept. 18 and let it start generating electricity on Sept. 23.

PLUTONIUM-FUELLED REACTOR


(AGI) Tokyo - After an explosion destroyed part of the building housing reactor n1 Saturday, fears grow of a blast at reactor n3. Japanese authorities fear that an explosion may occur also at the boiling water reactor (BWR) of the Fukushima nuclear-power plant. If such an explosion occurred, repercussions could be even worse because, unlike reactor number 1, reactor number 3, where pressure is rising, is charged with MOX Plutonium-enriched fuel consisting of a mixture of plutonium oxide and uranium oxide. . .

I found this "tweet" quite interesting.

1531: Japanese broadcaster NHK is saying that pressure inside reactor 2 at Fukushima rose suddenly when the air flow gauge was "accidentally" turned off. That blocked the flow of water into the reactor leading to full exposure of the rods, it says. That report has not been confirmed.

Japan Utility: Nuclear Fuel Rods Fully Exposed Again

Published March 14, 2011

| Associated Press

TOKYO -- A Japanese utility says fuel rods at a troubled nuclear reactor were once again fully exposed hours after authorities were able to stabilize a similar emergency.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. says the exposure happened at Unit 2 of the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant because a steam vent wouldn't open Monday, causing a sudden drop of water.

That reactor and two others at the plant are dangerously overheating and authorities are racing to prevent meltdown.

Nuclear recycling has risks and benefits
Maggie Koerth-Baker at 8:08 AM Monday, Mar 14, 2011

There was another explosion at a Japanese nuclear power plant today. Same power plant, same cause, different reactor...

   "Nuclear experts are particularly worried about the No. 3 unit, supplied by Toshiba Corp., because it uses an unconventional fuel called MOX fuel, short for mixed oxide.

    It is made by mixing low-enriched uranium with plutonium that has been recycled from a global stockpile of defunct nuclear weapons. This recycling is part of an international effort to decrease the number of nuclear weapons and move from "megatons to megawatts."

    MOX fuel has greater concentrations of "actinides," or radioactive elements and runs hotter than conventional fuel, so a shut down plant would have to deal with more "decay" or residual heat from fuel rods.

    There are at least two dozen MOX-burning nuclear plants globally. But some experts believe that an accident at a nuclear power plant utilizing MOX fuel could be more dangerous than one that uses conventional uranium-based fuel."

BREAKING NEWS: Radiation twice the maximum seen so far detected at nuke plant Monday: TEPCO
http://english.kyodonews.jp/


Fukushima No. 2 reactor's fuel rods fully exposed, melting feared
14 March 2011
, Tokyo (Kyodo News)
http://english.kyodonews.jp/news/2011/03/77870.html

Fuel rods at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant's No. 2 reactor were fully exposed at one point after its cooling functions failed, the plant operator said Monday, indicating the critical situation of the reactor's core beginning to melt due to overheating.

The rods were exposed as a fire pump to pour seawater into the reactor to cool it down ran out of fuel, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said. The firm had reported the loss of cooling functions as an emergency to the government.

TEPCO said water levels later recovered to cover 30 centimeters in the lower parts of the fuel rods.

The seawater injection operation started at 4:34 p.m., but water levels in the No. 2 reactor have since fallen sharply with only one out of five fire pumps working. The other four were feared to have been damaged by a blast that occurred in the morning at the nearby No. 3 reactor.

The utility firm said a hydrogen explosion at the nearby No. 3 reactor that occurred Monday morning may have caused a glitch in the cooling system of the No. 2 reactor.

Similar cooling down efforts have been taken at the plant's No. 1 and No. 3 reactors and explosions occurred at both reactors in the process, blowing away the roofs and walls of the buildings that house the reactors.

It is feared that the No. 2 reactor will follow the same path. To prevent a possible hydrogen explosion at the No. 2 reactor, TEPCO said it will look into opening a hole in the wall of the building that houses the reactor to release hydrogen.

The company has also begun work to depressurize the containment vessel of the No. 2 reactor by releasing radioactive steam, the government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said. Such a step is necessary to prevent the vessel from sustaining damage and losing its critical containment function.

With only one fire pump working, TEPCO is placing priority on injecting water into the No. 2 reactor, although both the No. 1 and No. 3 reactors still need coolant water injections, according to the agency[/u].

The blast earlier in the day injured 11 people but the reactor's containment vessel was not damaged, with the government dismissing the possibility of a large amount of radioactive material being dispersed, as radiation levels did not jump after the explosion.

TEPCO said seven workers at the site and four members of the Self-Defense Forces were injured. Of the 11, two were found to have been exposed to radiation and are receiving treatment.

Since the magnitude 9.0 quake hit northeastern Japan last Friday, some reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 plant have lost their cooling functions, leading to brief rises in radiation levels.

As a result, the cores of the No. 1 and No. 3 reactors have partially melted.

The government ordered residents within a 20-kilometer radius of the plant to evacuate Saturday in the wake of the initial blast at the plant's No. 1 reactor. A total of 483 people are still attempting to leave the area, according to the nuclear agency.

The agency ruled out the possibility of broadening the area subject to the evacuation order for now

NATO declared Japan a nuclear threat in 2006. NATO just rendered their nuclear capabilities impotent just like they did Iran with Stuxnet, they used their HAARP crap as a cover like planes into the WTC.

NATO is deciding how much drama they wish to inflict on 7 billion people and whether they want to kill 100,000 or 10 million. Instead of tracking fricking nuke clouds, we need to expose the fricking documented proof that these assholes are doing this shit while passing emergency preparedness bills in prep for them doing it to us in June.

Even though there seems to be some more logical explanations for this tragic earthquake, it can't hurt to collect and preserve the data from HAARP. Noticed a few videos online presenting some of this info, but wanted to see all the data at once. NOT an accusation of HAARP, just presenting & preserving potential evidence. Does anyone know what exactly this data proves or doesn't prove?..

From page 1, I think it still applies...

Wow, thankfully we finally have another "24" scenario!!!!!

People were starting to doubt the utter absurdity of a ticking time bomb, but NATO finally has a somewhat believable noosphere myth-building opportunity to provide an even more batshit crazy "solution" for which they can push on the masses of "shock and awed" sheep.

What do you think will be used to "save us"

will it be DARPA's human flesh eating cheetahs?

will it be some neutrino manipulating guidance system?

will is be SDI lasers?

wil it be remote operational control of SIEMENS systems (a.k.a. STUXNET itself) to counter the likelihood that a similar remote system was used to cause these odd synchronized events (this is similar to PTECH risk management network centric systems being deployed post-9/11 when PTECH and risk management was the largest cause of the 9/11 mass homocide)?

will it be the "missile defense" shield which is really a "precision strike" targeting system?

will it be some rapid deployment force of cybernetically controlled "super soldiers" in Dyncorp exoskeletal protection?

will it be a new form of UAV's which can engage in 360 degre 100,000 megapixel predictive surveillance while deploying tactical chemtrails that can instantly eradicate nuclear fallout?

no one can tell yet, stay tuned for the dramatic turn of events in tonight's episode of "Days of our False Flagged Lives"

OMFG...this is ridiculous...7 billion people must now mockingbird MSM bullshit?

NATO declared Japan a nuclear threat in 2006. NATO just rendered their nuclear capabilities impotent just like they did Iran with Stuxnet, they used their HAARP crap as a cover like planes into the WTC.

NATO is deciding how much drama they wish to inflict on 7 billion people and whether they want to kill 100,000 or 10 million. Instead of tracking fricking nuke clouds, we need to expose the fricking documented proof that these assholes are doing this shit while passing emergency preparedness bills in prep for them doing it to us in June. This is all on record.

Meltdown threat rises at Japanese nuclear plant

Excerpt:

HAPPENING!

People in the port town of Soma had rushed to higher ground after a tsunami warning Monday - a warning that turned out to be false alarm - and then felt the earth shake from the explosion at the Fukushima reactor 25 miles (40 kilometers) away.

Authorities there ordered everyone to go indoors to guard against possible radiation contamination.

"It's like a horror movie," said 49-year-old Kyoko Nambu as she stood on a hillside overlooking her ruined hometown. "Our house is gone and now they are telling us to stay indoors."

"We can see the damage to our houses, but radiation? ... We have no idea what is happening. I am so scared."


FRIDAY

Four Japanese nuclear complexes were damaged in the wake of Friday's twin disasters  the Dai-ichi complex, which sits just off the Pacific coast and was badly hammered by the tsunami, has been the focus of most of the worries over Japan's deepening nuclear crisis.

SATURDAY

On Saturday, a similar hydrogen blast destroyed the housing around the complex's Unit 1 reactor, leaving the shell intact but resulting in the mass evacuation of more than 185,000 people from the area.

MONDAY MORNING

Water levels dropped precipitously Monday inside a stricken Japanese nuclear reactor, twice leaving the uranium fuel rods completely exposed and raising the threat of a meltdown, hours after a hydrogen explosion tore through the building housing a different reactor.

The Monday morning explosion at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant's Unit 3 injured 11 workers and came as authorities were trying to use sea water to cool the complex's three reactors.

LATE MONDAY

Water levels were restored after the first decrease but the rods remained exposed late Monday night after the second episode, increasing the risk of the spread of radiation and the potential for an eventual meltdown.

It's highly likely happening! There were signs that the fuel rods were melting in all three reactors, all of which had lost their cooling systems.

DANGER

- Operators knew the sea water flooding would cause a pressure buildup in the reactor containment vessels - and potentially lead to an explosion - but felt they had no choice if they wanted to avoid complete meltdowns.

- Eventually, hydrogen in the released steam mixed with oxygen in the atmosphere and set off the two blasts.

- All three of the operational reactors at the complex now have faced severe troubles.

- Fuel rods in all three of the most troubled nuclear reactors appeared to be melting.

- Drop in water levels at Unit 2

- Worst case scenario hang over the complex


ON THE POSITIVE SIDE

- International scientists say there are serious dangers but little risk of a catastrophe like the 1986 blast in Chernobyl, where there was no containment shells.

- Units 1 and 3 are at least somewhat stabilized for the time being.

- Chemical reactions inside the reactor were not moving quickly toward a complete meltdown.

- Prevailing wind in the area of the stricken plant was heading east into the Pacific, which experts said would help carry away any radiation.

- In some ways, the explosion at Unit 3 was not as dire as it might seem. The blast actually lessened pressure building inside the troubled reactor, and officials said the all-important containment shell - thick concrete armor around the reactor - had not been damaged.


FUTURE?

"We're now into the fourth day. Whatever is happening in that core is taking a long time to unfold," said Mark Hibbs, a senior associate at the nuclear policy program for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. "They've succeeded in prolonging the timeline of the accident sequence."

He noted, though, that Japanese officials appeared unable to figure out what was going on deep inside the reactor. In part, that was probably because of the damage done to the facility by the tsunami.

"The real question mark is what's going on inside the core," he said.


PARTIAL MELTDOWN - TOTAL MELTDOWN

Total or complete reactor meltdown - where the uranium core melts through the outer containment shell - were to occur, a wave of radiation would be released, resulting in major, widespread health problems.

Partial meltdown when nuclear fuel melts through a reactor's innermost chamber but not through the outer containment shell.

20,000 missing in 2 towns / Magnitude of Friday's quake revised upward to 9.0
http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national/20110313dy02.htm
The Yomiuri Shimbun

The central part of Minami-Sanrikucho, Miyagi Prefecture, was washed away by a tsunami caused by Friday's earthquake.

About 20,000 people were unaccounted for as of Sunday afternoon in two coastal towns devastated by tsunami after the Tohoku Pacific Offshore Earthquake.

About 10,000 residents each of Minami-Sanrikucho, Miyagi Prefecture, and Otsuchicho, Iwate Prefecture, were missing, authorities said. Otsuchicho Mayor Koki Kato is among those unaccounted for.

The head of the Miyagi prefectural police reportedly told a prefectural disaster headquarters Sunday afternoon that the number of deaths from the earthquake would "no doubt be tens of thousands" in the prefecture.

Meanwhile, the magnitude of Friday's earthquake, which hit the nation's northern and eastern regions, was revised to 9.0 from 8.8, the Meteorological Agency said Sunday.

The magnitude-9.0 quake is one of the biggest ever recorded in the world.

As of Sunday morning, the administrative functions of six municipalities--Onagawacho in Miyagi Prefecture and Rikuzen-Takata, Tono, Sumitacho, Iwaizumicho and Kunohemura in Iwate Prefecture--were paralyzed, making the full extent of damage in these places impossible to precisely determine, according to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency, an external organ of the Internal Affairs and Communications Ministry.

The total population of the six municipalities is about 86,000, and authorities have been unable to confirm the safety of many of these residents.

Also in Iwate Prefecture, many residents in Yamadamachi, whose population stands at about 19,000, are unaccounted for.

In Fukushima Prefecture, the number of people unaccounted for totaled 1,167.

The National Police Agency was informed by the Miyagi prefectural police Sunday morning that more than 200 bodies had been found in the Nobiru district of Higashi-Matsushima in Miyagi Prefecture.

According to an NPA survey, the number of people killed in the earthquake stood at 801 as of 2 p.m. Sunday, while 733 people were unaccounted for. The number of injured totaled 1,442 people. In Sendai, 200 to 300 bodies also had been found.

The NPA said 240,600 people had been evacuated, including 131,700 people staying at 450 shelters in Fukushima Prefecture.

Meanwhile, the Ground Self-Defense Force said more than 20,000 people, including 9,000 in Wataricho, were stranded and calling for rescue in Miyagi Prefecture. Several hundred to several thousand people also were stranded in such cities as Ishinomaki, Kesennuma and Tagajo.

According to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency, about 1,260 people are waiting to be rescued in Iwate Prefecture.

The Meteorological Agency said a magnitude-6.2 earthquake occurred at about 8:25 a.m. Sunday with the epicenter off Miyagi Prefecture. Strong aftershocks continue to shake the region. Since Friday through 7 a.m. Sunday, the number of aftershocks with confirmed epicenters and magnitudes of 5 or greater totaled at least 168.

The agency downgraded its tsunami warning to an advisory at 7:30 a.m. Sunday for the Pacific side of Aomori Prefecture as well as for Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, given that the height of tsunami observed around the Sanriku Coast halved from Saturday night to Sunday morning. This means that the entire nation is no longer subject to higher levels of tsunami warnings.

Transportation and other lifelines in quake-hit areas had yet to be restored as of Sunday morning.

Tohoku Electric Power Co. said power was out at about 1.8 million households as of 8 a.m. Sunday. The Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry said that water supply was cut off in at least 1.4 million households in 16 prefectures.

2,000 bodies found on Miyagi coast
http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national/20110314dy03.htm
The Yomiuri Shimbun

A total of about 2,000 bodies have been found in Miyagi Prefecture's coastal area in the wake of last week's calamitous earthquake and tsunami, according to the prefectural government.

In a meeting Monday morning at the disaster response headquarters set up by the prefectural government, it was reported that about 1,000 bodies had been discovered in Minami-Sanrikucho, a coastal town razed by a tsunami generated by the latest killer quake.

Meanwhile, an estimated 1,000 bodies have been found on the coast of the Ojika Peninsula in Ishinomaki, the prefectural police said, adding the death toll likely would continue to rise.

According to a central government count, about 530,000 people were taking shelter at public facilities and other makeshift evacuation centers early Monday morning in areas struck by the massive earthquake and tsunami. Those evacuees included about 150,000 in Miyagi Prefecture and 130,000 in Fukushima Prefecture as of 12 a.m.

About 9,600 people remained stranded on hills, buildings and other elevated locations, waiting for rescuers to arrive at their sites after fleeing from structures flooded by tsunami waves.

The Self-Defense Forces have increased the number of personnel tasked with rescuing quake victims to 66,000. These SDF members are continuing their relief activities in quake-stricken areas, including the transportation of relief supplies to these locations. Their mission is being carried out in cooperation with personnel aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and seven other U.S. vessels dispatched to rescue and aid victims of Friday afternoon's Tohoku Pacific Offshore Earthquake.

As of Monday noon, the death toll stood at 1,647, including 643 in Miyagi Prefecture and 531 in Iwate Prefecture. Meanwhile, those reported missing totaled 1,720 in the stricken areas, with 1,990 people injured, according to the National Police Agency.

On Monday morning, the blackout caused by the calamity continued to affect an area that normally covers an estimated 1.13 million households, including about 930,000 in Miyagi Prefecture and 150,000 in Iwate Prefecture. At least 1.4 million households in 14 prefectures, mainly in the Tohoku and Kanto regions, remained cut off from water supply.

The Idiocy and Hubris of Engineers: Will GE Get Whacked for the
Catastrophic Failure of its Nuk Plants n Fukushira?



Created 03/14/2011 - 12:44
by: Dave Lindorff

http://www.thiscantbehappening.net/node/509
  

GE, the company that boasts that it “brings good things to life,” was the designer of the nuclear plants that are blowing up like hot popcorn kernels at the Fukushima Dai-ichi generating plant north of Tokyo that was hit by the double-whammy of an 8.9 earthquake and a hugh tsunami.

The company may escape tens or hundreds of billions of dollars in liability from this continuing disaster, which could still result in a catastrophic total meltdown of one or more of the reactors (as of this writing three of the reactors are reported to have suffered partial meltdowns, and all could potentially become more serious total meltdowns with a rupture of the reactor container), thanks to Japanese law, which makes the operator--in this case Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) liable. But if it were found that it was design flaws by GE that caused the problem, presumably TEPCO or the Japanese government could pursue GE for damages.

In fact, the design of these facilities--a design which, it should be noted, was also used in 23 nuclear plants operating in the US in Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Vermont--appear to have included serious flaws, from a safety perspective.

The drawings of the plants in question, called Mark I Reactors, provide no way for venting hydrogen gas from the containment buildings, despite the fact that one of the first things that happens in the event of a cooling failure is the massive production of hydrogen gas by the exposed fuel rods in the core. This is why two of the nuclear generator buildings at Fukushima Dai-ichi have exploded with tremendous force blasting off the roof and walls of the structures, and damaging control equipment needed to control the reactors.

One would have thought that design engineers at GE would have thought about that fact, and provided venting systems for any hydrogen gas being vented in an emergency into the building. But no. They didn’t.

I had this though last night too.

Earlier this year I thought that a false flag attack they might pull would be a radiological weapon that would contaminate the wheat and corn fields in the "heartland" and would wipe out the entire 2008 crops and make the soil unusable. BUT flooding..... is having the effect of wipping out an entire crop. Less long term damage as well.

Get you food cause there might not be any soon.

I was wondering (and maybe a new thread should be started for this).. but I saw an article posted on drudgereport from der spiegel talking about Germany's reluctance to use Nuclear Power and how this incident will likely shift nations away from using nuclear power in the future.  What implications does that have?  I don't have an opinion formed on the use of nuclear power for energy, but I was wondering if anyone here knew if this was perhaps an intended shift in thinking.  What consequences could this have?  Would it make nations more dependent on oil?  Is this a good or bad potential shift in politics?  What legal ramifications could this bring about?

For instance.. could the UN step in and try to legislate against the use of nuclear power for energy, giving even more power to OPEC, etc?

Fukushima reactor receives MOX

FUKUSHIMA (Kyodo) Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Saturday loaded a nuclear reactor in Fukushima Prefecture with MOX, a controversial fuel made with reprocessed plutonium and uranium oxides, as it prepares to become the leading power utility's first facility to go pluthermal.

The No. 3 reactor at Tepco's Fukushima No. 1 plant will be the nation's third pluthermal facility, but only the first to be refurbished since the plant was built 34 years ago.

Tokyo Electric plans to activate the reactor on Sept. 18 and let it start generating electricity on Sept. 23.

PLUTONIUM-FUELLED REACTOR


(AGI) Tokyo - After an explosion destroyed part of the building housing reactor n1 Saturday, fears grow of a blast at reactor n3. Japanese authorities fear that an explosion may occur also at the boiling water reactor (BWR) of the Fukushima nuclear-power plant. If such an explosion occurred, repercussions could be even worse because, unlike reactor number 1, reactor number 3, where pressure is rising, is charged with MOX Plutonium-enriched fuel consisting of a mixture of plutonium oxide and uranium oxide. . .

I am an Engineer at a Nuke Facility in the S.E. US.... there is disinfo coming MAINLY from the MSM, but AJ started sticking his foot in his mouth on last Fri, with his give me coal not nuke TECHNICAL misunderstanding......

My plant is exactly the same config. as 1, 2, & 3.... BWR's the explosion occurred on the refueling floor at the top of the building where the Hydrogen gas had accumulated, as it is lighter than air, I am puzzled that an updraft breech was not initiated to bleed off the Hydrogen into much more dispersed, and less dangerous concentrations. The accumulation of excess Hydrogen in O2 spontaneously combusted. excess Hydrogen due to fuel rod uncovering.... the roof of the Rx Bldg. was sacrificed and an immediate skyshine released.... the dose escalated to 127 mmrem, but as would be expected receded, because only secondary containment was breeched..... radioactive containments were released, don't get me wrong, but it could have been much worse... Primary containment as of the latest info I have read was not breeched..... the drywell was flooded via spray heads within the well, however do to extremely high BWR vessel internal pressure, keeping cooling water over the fuel rods proved problematic.... I will not candy coat it, because this is crucial, the core would have begun melting away, hence the need for Boron injection to "poison" reactivity.... we need to pray or whatever you do for these engineers and maintenance personal that they would not find themselves in the middle of a primary containment breech......

...in regards to Stuxnet.... I would, without having proof would suggest that is total bullshit..... ALL control rod movement etc., MSRV's, SRV's, feedwater check values, etc. etc. are not digitally controlled, there are plenty of digital equipment within the units, but due tot he AGE of these Reactor's the main control system are not these plants are Mechanically, moreover fluid/air actuated, extremely reliable........... moreover these systems are intended to sit in atleast quadruple redundancy from any outside WAN interface

Japan Developing Its Own Thorium Reactor
October 7, 2010 • 9:05AM

At a news conference in Tokyo on Oct.5, Keidanren, the Japanese industry group with big name members such as Toyota, Toshiba and Hitachi, revealed that International Thorium Energy Molten-Salt Technology Inc. (IThEMS) plans to build the world's first commercial Thorium Molten-Salt Reactor (Th-MSR). It uses thorium fluoride which is dissolved in molten salt of lithium and beryllium fluoride (Flibe). Th-MSR uses liquid fuel. As a result, the fuel not only does not produce plutonium, it acts as an incinerator burning up fuel and produces only a little high-level and low-level nuclear wastes.

However, the principal reason why Japan is leaning towards developing Th-MSR is because these reactors will be under normal pressure in a normal pressured container, unlike the high-pressure in a closed container for the current solid fuel class of reactors. Japan is situated in a high-risk earthquake zone and pressurized reactors were accepted reluctantly. In case of the Th-MSR, even if the thorium molten-salt were to be released from the container, it would glassify quickly posing no danger to anyone.

Since the 1990s, long before the Indian nuclear program was opened up to the world, Japanese nuclear scientists were visiting India's institutions where the thorium fuel research work was being conducted. As of now, IThEMS, with a start-up of US$300 million, is planning to develop a micro-mini reactor rated at 10MW. The long-term plan is to seek funding for developing a larger 200MW Th-MSR

YES! The thorium fluoride is the key. We were on the verge of cheap and arguably safer nuclear power. But now, all bets are off.

I am an Engineer at a Nuke Facility in the S.E. US.... there is disinfo coming MAINLY from the MSM, but AJ started sticking his foot in his mouth on last Fri, with his give me coal not nuke TECHNICAL misunderstanding......

My plant is exactly the same config. as 1, 2, & 3.... BWR's the explosion occurred on the refueling floor at the top of the building where the Hydrogen gas had accumulated, as it is lighter than air, I am puzzled that an updraft breech was not initiated to bleed off the Hydrogen into much more dispersed, and less dangerous concentrations. The accumulation of excess Hydrogen in O2 spontaneously combusted. excess Hydrogen due to fuel rod uncovering.... the roof of the Rx Bldg. was sacrificed and an immediate skyshine released.... the dose escalated to 127 mmrem, but as would be expected receded, because only secondary containment was breeched..... radioactive containments were released, don't get me wrong, but it could have been much worse... Primary containment as of the latest info I have read was not breeched..... the drywell was flooded via spray heads within the well, however do to extremely high BWR vessel internal pressure, keeping cooling water over the fuel rods proved problematic.... I will not candy coat it, because this is crucial, the core would have begun melting away, hence the need for Boron injection to "poison" reactivity.... we need to pray or whatever you do for these engineers and maintenance personal that they would not find themselves in the middle of a primary containment breech......

...in regards to Stuxnet.... I would, without having proof would suggest that is total bullshit..... ALL control rod movement etc., MSRV's, SRV's, feedwater check values, etc. etc. are not digitally controlled, there are plenty of digital equipment within the units, but due tot he AGE of these Reactor's the main control system are not these plants are Mechanically, moreover fluid/air actuated, extremely reliable........... moreover these systems are intended to sit in atleast quadruple redundancy from any outside WAN interface

This is only one move in the chess game. It serves a purpose to block development of safer nuclear options. Along with the green-nazi blocking of coal plants, the Chinese monopoly of rare earth metals (thus super-magnets), and the bolstering of alternative energy/carbon economy markets, you have a global energy coup.

Nuclear fear is essential for the next false flag and the destruction of Japan is necessary to allow US military presence and prevent any Russian and/or Chinese cooperation.

It's a multidimensional game and you are inferring that I assume only two dimensions.

Japanese officials have upgraded the nuclear alert level to a level 5 incident meaning that large quantities of radioactive material have been released and there is a high probability of significant public exposure.

The alert level was raised after the nuclear fuel rods became completely exposed and the nuclear reactor completely lost its cooling ability.

The size of the evacuation area has been expanded from a 20 KM radius to a 40 KM radius (about 25 miles) with the nuclear alert level upgrade.

The upgraded alert level comes on news that wind has carried the radioactive cloud 100 miles north of the reactor.

Quote
But the French Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) cast doubt on Japan’s classification of the crisis at Fukushima as level 4 of 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale. Chernobyl was classified as level 7.

“Level four is a serious level,” ASN chief Andre-Claude Lacoste said, but added: “We feel that we are at least at level five or even at level six.”

there is a long standing history of controlling people through lack of fuel, lack of fuel choices, lack of alternatives to so-called dirty fuels;

we are in this stupid "green trap" because someone somewhere sometime stripped the developing world of the ability to develop oil independence, much less access all the oil that's there right now.

you can see this all over america, for example, how many cities decided to give up railways for cars and trucks? i know mine did.
people who ride bikes are mocked by rednecks, and people who ride trains are frustrated by how slow they are. why haven't they been replaced? they make enough money as it is and fast travel is empowering. Japan empowered itself by embracing well-researched, efficient technologies.

America has wasted most of its money on war implements and sticking to the old fuels/infrastructure.
We have to reduce competition to an almost feudal scenario via "disasters" or our capitalism debt tower will fall over the ocean like a bridge and let them march right in.

I agree with a portion of what you said..... Japan did what they were forced to do technologically due to available land mass......

Even though there seems to be some more logical explanations for this tragic earthquake, it can't hurt to collect and preserve the data from HAARP. Noticed a few videos online presenting some of this info, but wanted to see all the data at once. NOT an accusation of HAARP, just presenting & preserving potential evidence. Does anyone know what exactly this data proves or doesn't prove?..

Got an idea but can you elaborate on the bold?

So in your opinion it could go any which way still?
Containment, partial containment, complete meltdown.
Then it possibly could haved already been breached and we arent hearing but you would think there would be reports of increased radiation levels.

these BWR's typically run 2 yrs on a re-fuel if this reactor is due up for a re-fuel later this year this could limit the criticality of the vessel..... if it is just coming or recently been through its scheduled outage then the vessel is going to contain a good deal of fuel........

yes.... still could go one of the three ways..... absolutely this could have already been breached, that is something I keep turning in my head, and this would explain continual loss of seawater and inability to sustain water over <50% of fuel rod height, but I haven't seen any data on high release rates.....

-  a drop from 3 bars to 1 bar in the containment vessel (meaning it is broken)
-  so the container that keeps the radiation inside has been broken
-  radiation can leak out either in liquid or aerosolized
-  887 microserviets (sp) readings -- very high

Stuxnet: A possible attack scenario
Symantec security researcher Liam O Murchu posits a possible Stuxnet worm attack scenario.
His speculation is driven by the technical features of the sophisticated malware threat.

http://www.zdnet.com/blog/security/stuxnet-a-possible-attack-scenario/7420
By Liam O Murchu | October 1, 2010, 2:58pm PDT

The following is a possible attack scenario. It is only speculation driven by the technical features of Stuxnet.

Industrial control systems (ICS) are operated by a specialized assembly like code on programmable logic controllers (PLCs). The PLCs are often programmed from Windows computers not connected to the Internet or even the internal network. In addition, the industrial control systems themselves are also unlikely to be connected to the Internet.

First, the attackers needed to perform reconnaissance. As each ICS is quite custom, the attackers would first need design documents. These design documents may have been stolen by an insider or even retrieved by an early version of Stuxnet or other malicious binary. Once attackers had the design documents and potential knowledge of the computing environment in the facility, they would develop the latest version of Stuxnet. Each feature of Stuxnet was implemented for a specific reason and for the final goal of potentially sabotaging the ICS.

Attackers would need to setup a mirrored environment that would include the necessary ICS hardware, such as PLCs, modules, and peripherals in order to test their code. The full cycle may have taken six months and five to ten core developers not counting numerous other individuals, such as quality assurance and management.

In addition their malicious binaries contained driver files that needed to be digitally signed to avoid suspicion. The attackers compromised two digital certificates to achieve this task. The attackers may have compromised these digital certificates by physically entering the premises of the two companies and stealing them as the two companies are in close physical proximity.

To infect their target, Stuxnet would need to be introduced into the target environment. This may have occurred by infecting a willing or unknowing third party, such as a contractor who perhaps had access to the facility, or an insider. The original infection may have been introduced by removable drive.

Once Stuxnet had infected a computer within the organization it began to spread in search of Field PGs, which are typical Windows computers but used to program PLCs. Since most of these computers are non-networked, Stuxnet would first try to spread to other computers on the LAN through a zero-day vulnerability, a two year old vulnerability, infecting Step 7 projects, and through removable drives.

Propagation through a LAN likely served as the first step and propagation through removable drives as a means to cover the last and final hop to a Field PG that is never connected to an untrusted network.

While attackers could control Stuxnet with a command and control server, as mentioned previously the key com- puter was unlikely to have outbound Internet access. Thus, all the functionality required to sabotage a system was embedded directly in the Stuxnet executable. Updates to this executable would be propagated throughout the facility through a peer-to-peer method established by Stuxnet.

When Stuxnet finally found a suitable computer, one that ran Step 7, it would then modify the code on the PLC. These modifications likely sabotaged the system, which was likely considered a high value target due to the large resources invested in the creation of Stuxnet.

Victims attempting to verify the issue would not see any rogue PLC code as Stuxnet hides its modifications.

While their choice of using self-replication methods may have been necessary to ensure they’d find a suitable Field PG, they also caused noticeable collateral damage by infecting machines outside the target organization. The attackers may have considered the collateral damage a necessity in order to effectively reach the intended target.

The attackers likely completed their initial attack by the time they were discovered.


* Liam O Murchu is a researcher in Symantec’s security response team.  He co-wrote a dossier on Stuxnet with Nicolas Falliere and Eric Chien.

1. How Does It Work?  Major Differences From Conventional LWRs

Proponents of burning plutonium in mixed-oxide(MOX) fuel in LWRs often say that since plutonium already exists in the burned uranium fuel and is still burning, there will not be a big difference by increasing the amount of plutonium a little bit.

The fact is that great effort is put to make it "not a big difference."

In conventional LWRs, the uranium fuel has about 3% fissile uranium-235 and the rest is non-fissile uranium-238.  

When fissile uranium absorbs a neutron, it starts fissioning and releases energy, emitting several neutrons.  

One neutron will likely start another fission, creating a chain reaction, but the other neutrons must be controlled so that it will not make a massive reaction which will induce an uncontrolled chain reaction.

Control rods are designed to absorb the extra neutrons.

But some neutrons are also absorbed by the non-fissile uranium-238 and this decays into fissile plutonium-239.

In the beginning, the plutonium content is zero and the fissile uranium is about 3%.  

The fissile uranium decreases as they burn, creating plutonium at the same time.  

At the end of one reactor cycle, the content of fissile uranium is about 0.7%-0.8%, approximately equal to the content of fissile plutonium-239 that is created. (1)  

In the case of MOX fuel used in one-third of a LWR core, the plutonium content is roughly 4% from the beginning, which is approximately 5 times more than that in the end of one cycle of a uranium fuel.  

This is a significant difference in terms of core nuclear physics. (2)

In a fast reactor, plutonium content of MOX fuel can be up to 50%.  

In the option to burn plutonium in CANDU reactors, the MOX fuel content could be 100% core. (3)  

But this has not been tested, nor is there any experience at all of burning plutonium fuel in CANDU reactors.

All light water reactors are designed to burn uranium fuel.  

Thus the nuclear physics of MOX fuels must be adapted to be as similar as possible to that of uranium fuel.  

The MOX fuel assemblies should be able to be operated as uranium assemblies without any restriction to the level of power, performance or safety.

#Various Types of Fuel Assemblies Necessary To Burn MOX

In order to achieve the same performance as normal LWR, the fuel assemblies are made into various types with different plutonium and uranium contents.

Usually, MOX fuel assembly designs for pressurized water reactors use three types of plutonium contents, 1.9%, 2.3% and 3.3%.(4)

For boiling water reactors, four to six different plutonium contents designs are used.(5)  

Another difference is that, because of the intensity of plutonium's thermal energy, plutonium fuel pellets cannot be of the same form as uranium fuel.  

It could be in the form of a donut where the central part is void to let the heat dissipate.  

But this type of a fuel pellet is likely to collapse.(6)  

All these factors make the fuel production extremely complicated and difficult, compared to the one-standard uranium fuel for conventional LWRs.

#Reduced Efficacy of Control Rods

Control rods work by absorbing neutrons in the reactor core, so maintaining stable power conditions.

Criticality depends on the small fraction of neutrons produced in the fission of uranium or plutonium which are generated with a delay of about ten seconds. (7)  

This time difference makes it possible to control the power level by mechanically inserting additional control rods into the core.
 
However, the fraction of delayed-neutrons in Pu-239 is about one-third that of uranium-235, which means that the reactor is more sensitive to variations in power. (8 )  

In addition, plutonium has a slightly higher propensity to capture thermal neutrons than uranium.  

Therefore the efficacy of control rods is somewhat reduced, and safety margins are lower.  

The additional demands on control systems are largest for those plutonium fuels in which plutonium-239 content is highest, as in MOX fuel using weapon-grade plutonium. (9)

For these reasons, the MOX fuel assemblies should be placed away from the control rods.  

The higher average energy of the neutron spectrum of MOX also increases the rate of radiation damage to structural materials in and around the core.  

This could cause embrittlement of the reactor vessel in the end, which is another factor for safety concerns.

#Danger of Losing Control of the Reactor Is Greater with MOX

Conventional LWRs are designed to decrease the reactivity when the temperature rises.

But when using Pu-239 as fuel, heating of the core from an increase in reaction rate tends to increase the reaction rate still further.  

This is called the positive temperature coefficient of reactivity, meaning there is a danger of losing control of the reactor by accelerated chain reaction of fissioning. (10)


2. Will MOX Option Really Eliminate plutonium?  

Three options for the disposition of "excess" plutonium are considered.  

They are the "reactor option," burning it as MOX fuel in reactors; "immobilization", mixing plutonium with highly radioactive fission products and glassifying it into logs for geological disposal; and "deep borehole," burying plutonium deep enough so that it will be unretrievable.  

The proponents of the reactor option using MOX fuel often say that the immobilization and the deep borehole options will merely put the plutonium underground and will not eliminate plutonium.

They claim that the only way to eliminate plutonium is to burn it in reactors.  But this is misleading.

It can only be eliminated by repeatedly reprocessing the spent MOX fuel, and reusing the separated plutonium.  

But plutonium from reprocessed MOX spent fuel is degraded in quality and cannot be used as fuel.

The scale of effort required to overcome the economics and the technological difficulties is overwhelming.

The objective of burning excess plutonium in reactors is to convert the weapons-grade plutonium into spent fuel, contaminated with other highly radioactive fission products so that it will be difficult to retrieve plutonium without reprocessing.  

This is called the "spent fuel standard."  

But even if it becomes "spent fuel standard," plutonium could be retrieved by reprocessing, and studies have shown that nuclear bombs could be made from such separated "reactor-grade" plutonium.(11)

The real amount of plutonium will decrease by half by burning it as MOX fuel in LWRs.  

The MOX fuel starts with 4% plutonium and 96% uranium-238.  

By the end of one fuel cycle, 2% plutonium will remain in the spent MOX fuel together with 94% uranium and 4% fission products. (12)

According to National Academy of Sciences, out of the 50 tons of "excess" weapons plutonium, a substantial amount of plutonium would remain in the spent MOX fuel, between 10 to 40 tons(13) depending on how long the fuel remains in the reactor core and the percentage of MOX the core use.


3. Impacts on Radioactive Waste Management

MOX spent fuel contains more fission products than uranium spent fuel.  

The important factor in managing spent fuel is the heat generation caused by the highly radioactive fission products.

Since spent MOX fuel contains much more fission products, the heat generation from MOX spent fuel is twice as high as that of spent uranium fuel after 10 years and three times as high after 100 years.(14)

What this means is that less spent MOX fuel could be put in a limited repository site, leading to the necessity of more or larger repository sites.  

Or, longer periods of centuries for interim storage would be necessary.  

Because of the existence of more plutonium, there is a criticality concern for geologic repository, and requires separate licenses for disposal.

This means additional costs and delays.  

In other words, spent MOX fuel disposal will require more space, more time, and more substantial costs.

Another typical argument proponents of plutonium "recycling" raise is that the extent of uranium mining, milling, conversion, enrichment and fabrication will be reduced, and thus curb the amount of related radioactive waste as a whole.  

This argument ignores the additional waste produced by fabricating MOX fuel, burning in LWRs and the effects of making spent MOX fuel disposal more difficult, not to forget the huge waste produced by reprocessing (which is unnecessary only in the case of disposition of weapons plutonium).  


4. The Health and Environmental Effects of the Use of MOX

#Specific Dangers of plutonium

plutonium does not exist in the natural environment, and is only produced in nuclear reactors.  It is known as one of the most toxic elements.  

It emits high energy alpha radiation, and has harmful biological effects.
 
Alpha radiation has a very short range but very intense ionization power.  

If exposed on the surface of the skin, the skin works as a shield and will prevent its penetration into the body, but all of its ionizing power will be focused on the small spot, causing burns and killing the skin tissue.

If inhaled into the body, the alpha particle will go in through the respiratory tract, and enter the lung.  

Due to its long half-life, it will stay in the body permanently, emitting alpha radiation, and killing the surrounding tissues by strong ionization.  

If plutonium is taken into the body in soluble form (e.g. plutonium nitrate) through food chain, it will enter the blood stream, and into the bones, liver and genital organs where it will be enriched.  

Alpha radiation leads to reactions in the cells of living things.  

It can cause damage to the nucleus and DNA of the cell, in effect causing genetic damage in descendants, particularly if germ cells are affected. (15)  

#Dangers of Resuspension in the Environment

In the event of a contamination of the environment with plutonium, the whirling up and inhalation of plutonium particles, known as resuspension, plays an important role.  

If there is a road traffic, building work or cleaning work at the plutonium contaminated site, plutonium can enter the body through the respiratory tract.  

Generally, the more whirled up, the greater the dose intake per quantity of plutonium on the ground.  

If there is fire, and plutonium becomes airborne into fine aerosol particles, plutonium contamination of the environment will extend to a far larger scale, landing on ground, contaminating a vast wider area. plutonium remains effective over very long periods affecting the health of the people and the environment. (16)  

#Accident Scenario When Burning MOX

Accidents involving overheating and meltdown are possible in any nuclear reactors.  

In such accidents, not only would readily volatile noble gases, like iodine and caesium be released to the environment, but a small portion of the actinides, including plutonium and neptunium would be released.  

As the activity of the actinides is substantially higher in the case of MOX, the consequences of such severe accidents become more serious.

When MOX fuels are used, the probability of having such serious accidents or trouble would increase due to the high content of plutonium in the fuel.  

Even if an accident is not a serious one, it could become serious since even a small portion of the inventory of actinides released to the environment could cause significant radiological consequences.

According to a comparative analysis of possible consequences of a core meltdown accident in the German Kruemmel nuclear power plant with and without the use of MOX fuel (17):

*The radiation exposure from inhalation of radioactive materials during the passage of the radioactive cloud is higher by several dozen percent than if uranium fuel elements were exclusively used.

*Radiation exposure through the route of inhalation of remobilized long-lived actinide isotopes is more than doubled.

*The land areas to become out of use by long-term contamination increases as the resuspension pathway is a limiting factor and the greater part of the dose resulting from the pathway comes from the actinides. (18)

#Accidents at Fabrication Plants

Accidents at MOX fuel fabrication plants have occurred.  

In June, 1991, the storage bunker of the MOX fuel fabrication plant in Hanau, Germany was contaminated with MOX.  

It occurred after the rupture of a foil for container packaging in the course of an in-plant transportation process.  

Five workers were exposed to plutonium.  

This accident was the main reason the fabrication plant at Hanau was shut down. (19)

In November, 1992, a rod was broken through a handling error and MOX dust released during the mounting of MOX fuel rods to fuel assemblies in the fuel fabrication facility adjoining the MOX facility in Dessel, Belgium.(20)

In event of such accidents, if the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) recommendations for general public exposure were adhered to, only about 1 mg of plutonium may be released from a MOX facility to the environment.  

As a comparison, in uranium fabrication facility, 2kg (2,000,000mg) of uranium could be released in the same radiation exposure.

A 1 mg release of plutonium from a processing process can easily happen from various smaller incidents.(21)  

#Worker Hazards

The National Academy of Sciences concludes that the main environment, safety and health related issues in weapons plutonium disposition that needs special attention with the addition of weapons plutonium is the occupational risk from fuel preparation. (22)

Because plutonium is more radioactive than uranium, greater safety concern is required when handling the material in whatever way.  

The ICRP sets a standard for occupational exposure to radiation at 100 mSv over 5 years, with a maximum of 50 mSv in any one year.  

If you interpret this in comparison for workers at an uranium fuel fabrication plant with MOX fuel fabrication plant workers, the standards for protection against inhalation are roughly two Million times stricter in plutonium processing than in uranium processing.(23)

Another factor is the gamma radiation exposure which comes from americium, which accumulates as plutonium decays into americium as time lapses.  

Gamma radiation penetrates through almost anything, so it is very difficult to protect workers from this radiation.

Excerpt:

In a nuclear alert, the authorities also hand out iodine pills to prevent cancers of the thyroid, which is a particular risk for babies, young children, teenagers and expectant or breast-feeding mothers.

The goal is to saturate the thyroid with “healthy iodine,” shielding it from radioactive iodine, said Gourmelon.

Timing, though, is essential. Preferably, the iodine is taken an hour before a known fallout incident.

Japanese guidelines say the pills should be distributed when the likely absorbed dose of radioactivity is 100 milligray, a unit named after a British physicist.

You can also take it in the following 24 hours after the incident,” he said. “It does work but the protection is reduced to 25%.”

Japan remains in a state of emergency three days after a devastating earthquake and tsunami hit the country.

An estimated 10,000 people have died, and Japan is facing the worst nuclear crisis since the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

On Monday, a second explosion hit the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, and a third reactor lost its cooling system, raising fears of a meltdown.

Radiation levels have been detected as far as 100 miles away.

Dozens of people have tested positive for radiation exposure, and hundreds of thousands of have been evacuated, with the number expected to rise. [includes rush transcript]

I'm no expert here, but just wondering if the explosion at Fukushima #3 is basically the same as a nuclear bomb going off? The reason I ask is because it didn't seem to produce a blast wave, otherwise you'd think it would have taken out those towers.

Why are they going ahead with a drill that mimics nuclear fallout and controls all detection systems for that fallout?

it will be a slow-burning multiple day high exposure event rather than a sudden dispersal of fallout, to me this could be worse than a traditional nuke.

right/wrong???

once primary containment is breeched high level local radiation will be present at the breech point and surrounding immediate areas...... but no fallout, fallout occurs because the actual nuke bomb is exploded some height above the ground, scattering contaminate and high level exposure over very large areas, propelled via the shock wave and thusly travelling at the speed of sound...... the big risks here are at the hydrogen explosion how much contaminate was released via skyshine from the reactor building, then if primary containment is breeched leeching of radioactive fissile material and contaminates into immediate area and then maybe in the ground water etc etc..... and very high, above grave danger local exposures.... spent fuel after 10 yrs in the pool emits approx. 10,000 rem/hr....fatal human whole body dose is 500 rem.... but let me say GREAT lengths are taken to control radiation exposure and ultimately safety of the surrounding areas and workers..... this event is an unthinkable probability that humans with finite understanding perhaps could not have foreseen? maybe, I am still out on this one....... why the hell were their diesels susceptible to no starts? this shit is drilled often and is big issues stateside..... procedure does call that in the event back up power is lost and the diesels are inop, as I stated before you fill the damn drywell with firehouses..... I wonder if they have a leak in the torus.....

No resultant skyshine from initial breech of secondary containment........


Now I swear this is the first time I read this article; thanks Ninja

http://english.kyodonews.jp/news/2011/03/78063.html (http://english.kyodonews.jp/news/2011/03/78063.html)

The agency said the explosion at the No. 2 reactor may have damaged the ''suppression chamber,'' a facility connected to the reactor's container which is designed to cool down radiation steam and lower the pressure in the reactor. It said a sharp decline in the pressure level of the chamber suggests damage.

That is the Torus... as I have been speculating that it is damaged.... that means this Reactor is leaking in the sub basement..... typically the access to the Torus is via a hatch in the floor on the base level of the reactor Bldg.... very contaminated area.... full dress out to go in there.


Following the incident, the radiation level near the main gate of the Fukushima No. 1 plant exceeded the legal limit to reach 965.5 micro sievert per hour at 7:00 a.m. and jumped to 8,217 micro sievert at 8:31 a.m., the agency said. The latter amount is more than eight times the 1,000 micro sievert level to which people can safely be exposed in one year.

Given that the building housing the reactor has already been damaged by Monday's hydrogen blast at the neighboring No. 3 reactor, a spread of radiation outside the plant has become a serious threat, experts say.

The possibility of a meltdown, in which fuel rods melt and are destroyed, ''cannot be ruled out'' as the fuel rods have been damaged, the utility said.

In Ibaraki Prefecture, just south of Fukushima, an amount of radiation up to about 100 times the usual level was measured Tuesday morning. The wind was blowing from north to south when the incident occurred at the Fukushima plant.

Predictions or preconditioning, it don't matter at this point.

Weird. I was just listening to Friday's Coast To Coast and they mentioned Edgar Cayce in relation to earthquakes leading to more serious events. I hadn't even heard of the guy and his predictions up until that point.

And I'm not sure I shall delve any further. 8)

I'm sure Bob Bowman said 3 of the reactors were already shut down prior to the earthquake. If that's the case then things must be even more out of control than thought. Now stuff's just blowing up at random.

I'm sure Bob Bowman said 3 of the reactors were already shut down prior to the earthquake. If that's the case then things must be even more out of control than thought. Now stuff's just blowing up at random.

confirmed reactor 4 was unoperational (which probably means shut down) and caught fire.

nothing more said, yet.

Meltdown fears in Japan
permalink email story to a friend print version

http://rt.com/news/meltdown-radiation-japan/

With a fourth explosion rocking the Fukushima nuclear facility on Tuesday and radiation levels at the facility gate increasing hundredfold, fears of a meltdown in Japan dramatically increase.

In his televised address on Tuesday, Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan announced that radiation had spread from the three damaged reactors in the Fukushima nuclear plant. A no-fly zone has been imposed over the nuclear plant. The prime minister has also asked people living within 30 kilometers of the Fukushima complex to stay indoors to avoid potential health risks from radiation.

The latest, fourth, hydrogen explosion at Unit 4 of the Fukushima facility resulted in a massive fire at the spent fuel storage pond, which was supposed to contain over a thousand of spent fuel rods at the moment. The fire was eventually put out. Unit 4 itself was not operational, but the hydrogen is believed to have released radiation, the Associated Press reports.

The explosion followed another blast, which hit the facility’s Unit 2 just hours earlier. The country’s nuclear safety agency has announced that it suspects the explosion may have damaged the reactor’s container. AP has quoted an agency spokesperson, Shinji Kinjo, as saying that "a leak of nuclear material is feared.'"

Radiation fears after Japan blast

Radiation from Japan's quake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has reached harmful levels, the government says.

The warning comes after the plant was rocked by a third blast which appears to have damaged one of the reactors' containment vessels for the first time.

If it is breached, there are fears of more serious radioactive leaks.

Officials have extended the danger zone, warning residents within 30km (18 miles) to evacuate or stay indoors.

The crisis was sparked by a 9.0-magnitude quake and tsunami on Friday.

'Don't go outside'

On Tuesday morning, reactor 2 became the third to explode in four days at the Fukushima Daiichi plant - 250km (155 miles) north-east of Tokyo.

A fire also briefly broke out at the plant's reactor 4 on Tuesday and is believed to have led to radioactive leaks.

Radiation levels drop at Japanese plant

Tokyo (CNN) -- Japanese authorities said radiation levels had dropped at the earthquake-damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant Tuesday

"The level has come down to the level to cause no harm to human health, according to the report I have received," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told reporters, describing reading taken at the plant's front gate.

Edano said readings at the gate at 3:30 p.m. (2:30 a.m. ET) were 596.4 microsieverts per hour -- compared to a high reading of 11,930 microsieverts per hour at 9 a.m (8 p.m. ET Monday).

Emergency cooling effort failing at Japanese reactor, deepening crisis

TOKYO: Japan's struggle to contain the crisis at a stricken nuclear power plant worsened sharply early on Tuesday morning, as emergency operations to pump seawater into one crippled reactor failed at least temporarily, increasing the risk of an uncontrolled release of radioactive material, officials said.

With the cooling systems malfunctioning simultaneously at three separate reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station after the powerful earthquake and tsunami, the acute crisis developed late Monday at reactor No. 2 of the plant, where a series of problems thwarted efforts to keep the core of the reactor covered with water — a step considered crucial to preventing the reactor's containment vessel from exploding and preventing the fuel inside it from melting down.

The trouble is that the ptb will keep telling people that other nuclear reactors are safe and people will buy into it.

Concerning all of the MSM fear mongerers who are talking about "jet streams" causing radiation to come to the US...

Jet Streams a problem? Woody Woodpecker them! Over 20 year old technology


Weather Modification
http://twm.co.nz/wxwar.html
Philip L. Hoag

Weather modification technology is in use today by both the United States and the Soviet Union. Both the U.S. and Soviet projects involve the manipulation of the ionosphere and the alteration of the earth’s magnetic fields. This technology seems to have both localized and global capabilities. Evidence indicates that this technology also has the capability of manipulating human behavior and mood patterns.

Nikola Tesla

All of this seemingly Star Trek-like technology originated from a Serbian immigrant named Nikola Tesla who came to the United States just before the turn of the century. This man, without question, proved to be the greatest scientific genius of this century. Tesla worked with both Westinghouse and Edison during the infancy of electricity and it was actually Tesla who developed alternating current.
Tesla also experimented with electromagnetic flux and studied the earth’s gravitational field. During his research he discovered that the ionization of the atmosphere would alter when it was charged by radio wave transmissions in the low frequency range of 10 to 80 hertz. Tesla also discovered that he could cause both positive and negative ionization of the atmosphere by manipulating the radio frequency. Further studies indicated that with positive ionization, people and animals became tired and lethargic and with negative ionization the effect was one of feeling active and energetic.

Another interesting aspect of this technology is the effect which harmonious radio frequencies make when they impact air molecules. The molecules become excited and give off negatively charged electrons which readily combine with hydrogen and oxygen to produce water molecules. But even more profound is the fact that this type of radio wave also carries positively charged ions through the ionosphere into the magnetosphere. The positively charged ions then become trapped in the Van Allen belts, traveling between the Aurora Borealis and the Aurora Australis, right where we coincidentally have holes in the ozone layers.

Freon, the ozone killer, by its nature dissipates quickly. This inherent quality is a contradiction to the concept that a concentration of freon is creating holes in the ozone layers at the North and South Poles. However, when radio waves hit already unstable freon precipitates, they are so reactive that they can not move on and dissipate into the magnetosphere.

As far-fetched as this subject may seem, leaders in the elite global establishment have intimated the existence of this technology and its capabilities. In 1970 Zbigniew Brzezinski published a book titled Between Two Ages. Brzezinski is one of the founding directors of the Trilateral Commission. In this book he said, "Technology will make available, to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of the security forces need be appraised…Technology of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm."

Further confirmation of the Western power elite’s interest in weather modification was revealed in an article which appeared in the September 12, 1989 edition of the Washington Post. This article reported on the 1989 Tokyo conference on global environment. The president of the World Bank, Barber Conable, who is also a Trilateral Commission member, gave a speech in which he outlined the long-range goals of the one world elite. In this speech he said, "while higher temperatures may cause ‘a number of natural disasters,’ they might also warm cold and unproductive lands in the north into productivity."

There is very good evidence that the one world group and the Soviets have been jointly involved in weather modification over the Northern Hemisphere since the early 1970s. In 1971 it was alleged that the U.S. and the Soviets started cooperating in secret weather modification projects. One such project was named POLEX, Polar Experiment of the Global Atmospheric Research Program, and another in 1973 was called AIDJEX, the Arctic Ice Dynamics Joint Experiment. It is purported that these experiments involved attempts to melt the polar ice cap. Other U.S. projects such as Nile Blue and Climate Dynamics involved the changing of the arctic ice pack. There was even an article in the December 16, 1980, edition of the New York Times discussing a joint U.S.-Soviet project involving the transmission of ELF waves from Antarctica designed "to interfere with the earth’s magnetic field."

Soviet Woodpecker System

The Soviet weather modification project is referred to as the Woodpecker system. It involves the transmissions of extreme low frequency (ELF) waves at about 10 hertz using Tesla transmitters in Angarsk and Khabarovsk in Siberia, Gomel, Sakhalin Island, Nikolayev in the Ukraine, Riga in Latvia and also a site 60 miles south of Havana in Cuba. To give you an idea of the magnitude of this system, the facility near Havana, Cuba, is said to be maintained and operated by a staff of 2,500 Soviet personnel.

These transmitters generate electromagnetic transmissions that produce an ELF scalar grid over the United States. This is done by transmitting these low frequency scalar waves in pairs so that they converge at a predetermined point on the earth’s surface and cause a disruption of the atmosphere. This technology can be used to alter the course of the jet stream and set up long- term weather blocks.


Long-term Weather Blocking

The long-lasting California drought in the 80s was caused by a massive ridge of high pressure 800 miles off the California coast which hovered for extended periods of time, blocking the usual flow of moist air coming in from the Pacific and pushing storms around to the north. Meteorologists who have analyzed this phenomena consider it to be one of the most unusual national patterns ever recorded, unique in the annals of weather recording. Such long-lasting centers of high pressure were unheard of until 1977. Evidence suggests that this was possibly caused by Woodpecker generated giant standing ELF waves which are transmitted by the Soviets intentionally to block the flow of normal weather patterns.

This phenomenon of long-lasting centers of high pressure is not limited to producing drought. In 1993 the Midwest region experienced severe flooding which was a result of the wettest period in this particular area since rainfall record keeping began in 1876. This flood was a result again of what meteorologists called a blocking pattern.
The normal weather systems usually move from west to east across the U.S., but during the ’93 flood the weather systems stalled for six weeks over the upper Midwest. A high pressure system over the eastern part of the United States was causing warm, moist air to move up from the Gulf of Mexico and dump moisture in the Midwest, where it met the jet stream. This weather pattern involved an unusual shift in the jet stream, which during the summer is usually weak and typically found much farther north in Canada.

This stationary high pressure front also blocked the path of cold Canadian air, resulting in record low temperatures in the Northwest. According to the September 1993 issue of Storm, The World Weather Magazine:
"It is extremely unusual for weather patterns to persist for so many weeks, bringing heavy rainfall to the same area almost on a daily basis… The reasons for the weather patterns to become fixed, as they did in June and July, 1993, are unclear."

GWEN

A system somewhat similar to the Soviet Woodpecker has been set up in the United States called the Ground Wave Emergency Network, or GWEN. This network was built under the guise, or possible dual use, of an emergency communication system that would not be interrupted by electromagnetic pulse during a nuclear war.

GWEN units are capable of altering the magnetic field within a 200- to 250-mile radius. The individual units themselves are made up of 300-foot tall towers which transmit radio waves through hundreds of bare copper wires which are each 300 feet in length. These wires are buried in the ground in a spoke pattern radiating out from the base of the tower. The wires interact with the earth like a thin-shelled conductor, radiating the radio wave energy for very long distances through the ground.

These units are located in Texas, Nevada, Maine, North Carolina, Maryland, Georgia, Oregon, Washington, California, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, New York, Alabama, Virginia, Kansas, Nebraska, New Jersey, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Colorado and Montana.
There is fairly significant evidence to suggest that these GWEN units in combination with the Soviet Woodpecker transmissions made a significant contribution to creating the extensive flooding in the Midwest in 1993.

It is interesting to note that the Russians are now openly marketing a small version of their weather engineering system called Elate, which can fine tune weather patterns over a 200-mile area. These units seem to have the same range as the individual GWEN unit. One of these Elate units operates at Moscow’s Bykovo Airport.

The threats of weather warfare, totalitarian government and famine dovetail together. As we saw in the famine which the Soviets artificially created in the Ukraine prior to World War II, famine is an effective means of subjugating a people. By controlling food, you can control people. Weather modification can affect food production and eventually the available supply. Starving resisters out is much more effective than having to track them down and shoot it out with them. If you have not surrendered your weapons, you don’t get a food ration coupon. Long-term food storage, well hidden, is the only insulation against famine and totalitarian oppression.

Tesla-Scalar Electromagnetic Weapons
An article in the spring 1993 edition of Orbis Magazine reported on another article which had appeared in the 1992 edition of a Russian magazine called Military Thought. This article, among other things, revealed Soviet involvement in the development of Tesla-scalar electromagnetic weapons: "…The current civil-military consensus also includes an image of future war based on the development and deployment of advanced conventional munitions, direct-energy weapons, space-based strike weapons and anti-ballistic missiles, and third-generation nuclear weapons."

Godzilla (ゴジラ Gojira?) is a daikaijū, a Japanese movie monster, first appearing in Ishirō Honda's 1954 film Godzilla. Since then, Godzilla has gone on to become a worldwide pop culture icon starring in 28 films produced by Toho Co., Ltd. The monster has appeared in numerous other media incarnations including video games, novels, comic books, television series, and an American remake. An American reboot is currently in production by Legendary Pictures.

With the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki still fresh in the Japanese consciousness, Godzilla was conceived as a monster created by nuclear detonations and a metaphor for nuclear weapons in general. As the film series expanded, the stories took on less serious undertones portraying Godzilla in the role of a hero, while later movies returned to depicting the character as a destructive monster.

Are We Witnessing the Death of Our Planet?
http://www.pakalertpress.com/2010/08/22/are-we-witnessing-the-death-of-our-planet/
Posted on Pakalert on August 22, 2010 Howard Beale

It seems that we are witnessing the death of our planet right before our very eyes. The extreme weather, Gulf oil disaster and use of deadly dispersants, to decades of agrichemical and synthetic medicines leeching into water ways, and general human pollution resulting in having to now map the North Atlantic Garbage Patch (not to be confused with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch) —  has resulted in major breaches to our interdependent life system.

Here are a few recently-reported disturbing indicators that our life support system may be nearing critical condition:

Hundreds-of-thousands of dead fish washing up on the Northeast shores of the U.S.
Millions of fish and thousands of alligators, turtles, dolphins and other river wildlife died during a record cold snap in South America.
Fifty whales dying in New Zealand.
Bee colonies dying off in staggering numbers.
Extreme weather severely damaging global food output at a time when the population is booming.

Do the controllers not see how it is all connected? Do they not care? Or was the circle of life meant to be broken? Either way, it is foolish to think humanity will not be intimately effected by these recent catastrophes, with more approaching.  Incidentally, the elite Rockefeller Foundation predicts this will be the “Doom Decade.” Many scientists, philosophers, and religious leaders have long predicted apocalyptic events in the near future, yet some of these figureheads surely knew the true nature of our profound interconnectedness.  The world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking’s recent declaration that humanity must “abandon earth or face extinction” is the modern equivalent to ancient prophecies. So, it stands to reason that if they know a certain cause will have a certain effect — especially as it pertains to our environment — then predicting the cumulative effect becomes quite simple, even obvious. Is it much of a stretch then to believe that Earth’s demise could be engineered by those with the resources to do so? Or, perhaps, it is simply a natural Earth cycle trying to cleanse itself in an epic battle between Mother Nature and Humanity. There may be too many variables to blame a specific event or establishment for the festering disease that endangers our planet, but evidence is mounting that Humanity’s current course will ultimately destroy our life-giving habitat.  In other words, if the vital links in the food chain are broken, as the oceans and the bees die off, then surely many human deaths will follow.



But, do not worry because Rockefeller's ET's will save us...


http://www.examiner.com/exopolitics-in-seattle/web-bot-1-2-billion-dead-bp-oil-spill-nov-2010-nuclear-war-accurate-will-ets-intervene

According to Web Bot, this high death figure may come as a result of interactivity between the impact of the BP oil catastrophe and an expected global nuclear war starting around the period commencing November 8, 2010.

Zulu shaman and noted author Credo Mutwa on January 7, 2010 predicted an oil-related catastrophe, approximately two and one-half months before the April 20, 2010 BP Gulf oil spill occurred.  On January 7, 2010, an individual who reportedly had just attended a meeting with Zulu shaman and author Credo Mutwa in Africa posted the following message on an internet chat board, “Credo Mutwa apparently just now said half the worlds population won’t see 2011 at a gathering where I'm attending. Some delegates have walked out because he didn't want to give an acceptable explanation, he just said ‘it's no asteroid, comet, plague, ... just OIL’

The current world population is estimated at 6.7 billion.  If half the world’s population were to die of causes that can be originally tied to the BP Gulf oil catastrophe (as well as nuclear war), that would mean that approximately 3.3 billion persons would die if Credo Mutwa’s prediction came true.  It should be noted that an alternative multi-dimensional ‘reading’ regarding the accuracy of Zulu shaman Credo Mutwa’s psychic prediction indicated that Credo Mutwa’s information may have been derived from “lower astral” dimensions influenced by reptilian factors that Mr. Mutwa tends to focus on.

A review of the literature reveals a number of hypothetical worst-case scenarios for the ecological, biosphere, economic and social impact of the BP oil spill, as well as intentional international destabilization resulting in global nuclear war. One of these worst case scenarios is that the BP oil spill (and a possible 2010 global nuclear war) are part of an intentional depopulation plan, undertaken and designed by a Rothschild-Rockefeller led (or possible grey-reptilian extraterrestrial influenced) Malthusian elite to eliminate a substantial portion of present humanity – from one billion persons to half or more of our current human population.

Examiner.com has reported there exists empirical research based on direct reports of abducted persons connecting a grey and hybrid extraterrestrial intervention strategy to a global environmental catastrophe.



Yup...do not worry boys and girls...the Rockefeller ET alien invasion hoax is only a few months/years away. They blow up Japan's nuke reactors during NLE11. They plan on doing it in the US too according to released NLE11 documentation. And the Rockefeller joystick controlled "Visitors" will save our planet.

Hollywood movies ain't got nothing on Rockefeller's visions of batshit crazy plotlines.

The monster has appeared in numerous other media incarnations including video games, novels, comic books, television series, and an American remake. An American reboot is currently in production by Legendary Pictures.

With the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki still fresh in the Japanese consciousness, Godzilla was conceived as a monster created by nuclear detonations and a metaphor for nuclear weapons in general. As the film series expanded, the stories took on less serious undertones portraying Godzilla in the role of a hero, while later movies returned to depicting the character as a destructive monster.

================================

Webster Tarpley describes a "competition between all nations" engineered by the Anglo/American empire.
Alan Watt points out that weather weapons are perfect because they can't be proved to have been the culprit...


So again, to reiterate from an earlier post, there are reasons why Japan was in the crosshairs:

The fact that Japan has been trying to pry the US military out of their country (http://www.japaninc.com/node/2920); or to the fact that a Japanese minister questioned the 'official' 911 story (http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/january2008/130108Japanese.htm).

The fact that Japan has an interest in rebuilding their military (http://tucsoncitizen.com/morgue/2006/09/29/27739-japanese-pm-wants-more-leeway-on-military-matters/) (something they've been forbidden to do since WWII).

The fact that the Japanese have developed nuclear facilities (http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/inf79.html) that provide them with enough power to fuel their extremely productive industrial economy.

The fact that Japan plans to assist Kazakstan in building nuclear power (http://silkroadintelligencer.com/2010/02/21/japanese-investors-in-talks-to-build-nuclear-power-plant-in-eastern-kazakhstan-governor/) plants.

The fact that Japan might be developing their own nuclear arsenal (spurred by the incoming missiles from North Korea), because they want to keep their own country safe, and lessen their dependence on the US. And we know that in early 2010, the Japanese offered to provide IRAN with enriched uranium to help them develop nuclear power plants. (http://www.thenewamerican.com/index.php/world-mainmenu-26/asia-mainmenu-33/3016-japan-offers-to-enrich-uranium-for-iran)

The fact that Japan, who buys Iranian oil, agreed to pay for that oil in YEN, instead of US dollars. (http://www.upi.com/Science_News/Resource-Wars/2007/09/10/Analysis-Iran-moves-to-ditch-US-dollar/UPI-69901189462065/)

Oh and there's the fact of our debt to Japan. Japan is second only to China in holding US debt (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/18/AR2008111803558.html).  

You would have to believe
they spent billions of dollars developing HAARP
but never planned to use it.

In spite of the book written by former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski about America's dual role as disseminator of the technetronic revolution and principal preserver of the International status quo titled “Between Two Ages” (1976) (http://www.amazon.com/Between-Two-Ages-Americas-Technetronic/dp/0313234981/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1300190282&sr=1-1) wherein he broached “the theme of weather control", which he regarded as a form of "broader social regulation”.  

In spite of the fact that Brzezinski again referred to weather weapons in his book "The Grand Chessboard" (http://www.amazon.com/Grand-Chessboard-American-Geostrategic-Imperatives/dp/0465027261/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1300190249&sr=1-1) (1998) by stating: “In that context, how America 'manages' Eurasia is critical. A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world's three most advanced and economically productive regions."

And you'd have to believe that those guys in the Kremlin were conspiracy theorists when their official newspaper RIA Novosti reported:[/color][/b] (http://en.rian.ru/international_affairs/20100727/159966724.html)

“The US is certainly exploring the possibilities of controlling the climate in several regions of the world. The corresponding technology is being developed in the framework of the High-Frequency Active Aural Research Program (HAARP), the objective being to build a potential to launch droughts, hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes.
 
From the military standpoint, HAARP is supposed to create a novel type of weapons of mass destruction and an instrument of expansionist policy which can be used to selectively destabilize environmental and agricultural systems of target countries.

Technically, the system is known to be a set of sources of electromagnetic radiation affecting the ionosphere. It comprises 360 sources and 180 aerials having the height of 22 meters. Altogether the station emits 3,600 kW towards the ionosphere, being the world's most powerful system of the kind.
 
The program opened in 1990, is jointly funded by the US Office of Naval Research and the US Air Force Research Laboratory, and is implemented by several university laboratories.”


You would have to be a coincidence denier
to believe the AngloAmerican empire had any reason to attack Japan with a non-traceable

...for ref. this is what the reactor bldgs look like (this is Unit 1, a GE Mark I)......
(http://modernsurvivalblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/general-electric-boiling-water-reactor-mark-I.jpg)

This is nothing like a nuclear reaction (fission) runaway or slow "meltdown" of a working reactor. The fuel doesn't work without the reactor, but if overheated (not well-cooled at all times) it will be damaged severely and destroyed.  The zirconium fuel rods contain a large amount of heat (and fuel always produces more added small) and if not cooled the hot reaction with cooling water produces hydrogen gas, which is explosive. These stored fuel may be destroyed or the still-hot pulled fuel rods will become dangerous, useless waste (and if spent always are).

Note the fuel and spent fuel storage areas on top. These are where the fire was in #4. Nothing will meltdown on any (of the rest) but there is a big question about #2. It's rods may have melted while still partly in the reactor. #3 has also had a fire and the largest explosion due to overheating after shutdown but it and #1 are safely contained regardless of being ruined. #2 containment vessel/system is seriously damaged.

The fire in #4 building is now out, it's reactor was not working for months, but it can be reactivated. The other three are pretty much destroyed, but concern now is still with #2.

#5 and #6 are still in good shape like #4

Anybody else catch that now Germany is jumping onto the nuclear hysteria bandwagon? They are shutting down their oldest reactors in case there is a sudden failure in their systems. So lets do the math here; Japanese nuclear plants with no clear sign of damage suddenly suffer meltdowns+ Germans shutting their nukes down despite no clear cause for concern due to seismic issues= potential fear for stuxnet being a potential threat.

Last night on Faux news around midnight, they were interviewing a talking head/ pundit, who said that the Japanese nuclear systems were hooked to the internet, that they were succeptable to intrusion and if I recall correctly, he even used the word sabotage. I wish I could provide a link, but my sleeping meds were kicking in and I am not sure which show it even was. Or if I had the time right. Anybody else watching late that might have a better clue?

If you were a stock power player who control much of the acquisition and distribution of ths information like Rothschild...you could be making a huge profit with this absolute doomsday fear mongering. There are reports that every person and every product off of the island will now need to be scanned by radiation detection systems.

AMAZING THAT BILLIONS HAVE JUST BEEN SPENT ON PROVIDING THESE RADIATION SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS ALL OVER THE WORLD!

WHAT A COINCIDENCE!
Bingo.  Whatever they spend money on in advance that doesn't really make sense, is guaranteed to have future problem reaction solution attacks carried out to suddenly create an fraudulent market for them.

Also, as you yourself have recognized, but warrants reiterating:  NLE 2011 is claimed to be being "drilled for" in the U.S., while it is actually IMPLEMENTED in Japan.

Exactly like the Russian train bombing that was drilled for in DC:

Subway explosions in Moscow are exactly the same as the military drills in DC!
Subway security boosted after Moscow bombing in DC/NY
http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2010/03/29/police-boost-nyc-subway-security-after-moscow-bombing/
10:03 AM ET

Police are increasing security in the New York City and Washington D.C. subway systems as a precaution following Monday's subway bombings in Moscow, according to local authorities.

Explosive ordnance detection teams will conduct station and rail yard sweeps throughout the day as part of the heightened security in the Washington area, a statement from D.C. transit officials noted.

"We remain an open system and we do what we can to be as secure as possible," Metro Transit Police Acting Chief Jeri Lee said. [Subliminal Conditioning: If you gave up more god-given rights and gave us more power you would be safer.]

The Washington area metro system is also conducting a drill simulating a bus explosion on Monday. The drill has been planned since December, the statement said.

Earlier, New York Police Department Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said police are stepping up security in the New York City subway system.



DC HAS NOT CANCELED THE DRILL?

W T F ?
They either realized that they couldn't get away with another 07/07/05 by carrying out the drill and the false flag terror attack at the same geographical location, so they obfuscated their subsequent operations by carrying out the inside job terror attacks in different countries or different cities/states than where the drill for that exact inside job attack is being carried out.

Now this isn't to say that they won't subsequently actually execute a similar scenario in the U.S. as in Japan as well--but this is an in-your-face clear pattern.

These GE reactors are all obsolete garbage, just a few levels better than the crappy Chernobyl-style Windscale-type graphite-moderated pile garbage.

Such accidents cannot occur with a water moderated system. The Candu (water moderated) system is the only inherently safe method. (That is inherently self-fail-safe)

These GE crap should all be outlawed

They may be shutting down their nuke reactors because they now know that STUXNET is real and all of their SIEMENS PLC Controllers as well as all software systems must be 100% revamped and re-evaluated.

This should have been done by Japan and the US back in October, but they ignored it.

The US better re-evaluate all PLC controllers ASAP! And they need to cancel this f-ing drill!

General Electric (http://www.warprofiteers.com/article.php?list=type&type=16)
http://www.warprofiteers.com/article.php?list=type&type=16

Run until 2001 by “Neutron” Jack Welch, who made it a matter of principle to lay off 10% of his workers per year, the world’s biggest company churns out plastics, aircraft engines and nuclear reactors and media spin through NBC, CNBC, Telemundo, and msnbc.com.

CEO: Jeffrey R. Immelt
Military contracts 2005: $2.2 billion
Defense-related contributions in the 2004 election cycle: $220,950*

The world’s largest company by market share, General Electric’s revenues in 2003 totaled $134.2 billion. GE was run until 2001 by “Neutron” Jack Welch, who made it a matter of principle to lay off 10% of his workers per year.

General Electric makes household appliances, plastics, water treatment systems, lighting, medical equipment, and commercial financial services. It also makes aircraft engines and nuclear reactors, and keeps criticism at bay with its ownership of media giants NBC, CNBC, Telemundo, Bravo, and, in partnership with Microsoft, msnbc.com. GE’s recent partnership with Vivendi added Universal Studios, USA, Trio and Sci-fi cable channels to its $43 billion media empire.

(http://www.moonbattery.com/9-11.jpg)(http://www.prisonplanet.com/310803ge.jpg)
General Electric is one of the world’s top three producers of jet engines, supplying Boeing, Lockheed Martin and other military aircraft makers for the powering of airplanes and helicopters. The “war on terrorism” has seen GE’s military contracts rise substantially.   But the company’s “defense” side has been doing well for a while. GE and other military contractors got a big boost under the Clinton administration from Presidential Directive 41 which stated that it was the job of US diplomats to promote arms sales abroad in order to safeguard American jobs; this directive tied the promotions of diplomats to how effectively they hocked US armaments.

(http://weinterrupt.com/wp-content/uploads/570_radiation_warning_symbol-300x248.jpg)
GE has designed 91 nuclear power plants in 11 countries, yet its nuclear reactors around the world have a fatal flaw. In the event of a nuclear meltdown, there is a 90 percent chance that radiation from GE-designed reactors would be discharged directly into the atmosphere. While the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission is aware of the problem, it continues to license GE nuclear reactors. GE’s history with nuclear power is an ugly one.

(http://www.enviroreporter.com/images/human-radiation-experiments/thumbs/thumbs_positorn_emitter_detector.jpg)
In the 1940s-1960s the company ran experiments on humans with radiation, including irradiating the reproductive organs of prison inmates in Walla Walla, Washington, without warning them of the risk of cancer. Other tests were run on the elderly and hospital patients. General Electric intentionally released large amounts of radiation into the air from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Richland, in order to see the distance it would travel. These atrocities were revealed in hearings in 1986 held by Representative Edward Markey of Massachusetts.

The company has also been accused of knowingly poisoning its workers at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory in Schenectady, New York with radiation and asbestos.


(http://superfundcleanup.com/images/superfund_cleanup.JPG)
General Electric is currently attempting to overturn the US Superfund Law of 1980, which allows the government to hold polluters responsible for cleaning up their toxic chemicals. GE argues that it is “unconstitutional” for the Environmental Protection Agency to force the company to pay $500 million for the cleanup of the Hudson River, where GE dumped carcinogenic PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, over three decades. In March 2004, a federal appeals court has revived GE’s lawsuit. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that GE is trying to change the Superfund Law: the company is responsible for 78 Superfund sites around the US. It’s clearly not safe to be a worker for GE either. The US government’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, has cited the company for 858 workplace safety violations from 1990-2001.

(http://desertpeace.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/israeli-spy.jpg)
General Electric has been involved in so many cases of fraud that in the 1990s the Pentagon's Defense Contract Management Agency created a special investigations office specifically for the company, which indicted GE on 22 criminal counts and recovered $221.7 million. In one case, in 1992, GE entered a guilty plea to criminal and civil charges for defrauding the Pentagon in a case where money was funneled to the Israeli military. GE was fined $69 million for violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

(http://www.chartingstocks.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/ge.png)
GE’s financial division has been another area ripe for fraud. GE was fined $100 million for trying to get bankrupt creditors to pay without informing the bankruptcy courts, in effect paying debts that they no longer legally owed. Not surprisingly, General Electric is the financial backer of WorldCom, the telecom company whose massive fraud and creative accounting led to the largest bankruptcy in US history.The company has been involved in countless scandals, but strangely enough, they don’t seem to affect General Electric’s ability to win government contracts – but then, this is typical of all military contractors. According to a survey by the Center for Public Integrity, from 1990-2002, 30 of the US government’s top contractors were found guilty of fraud in 400 cases, leading to settlements and fines amounting to at least $3.4 billion. General Electric paid $982.9 million for 63 cases in this period.

Such repeated behavior and continued contracts wouldn’t be possible without friends in high places, of which General Electric. GE spent more than $31 million in 2001 and 2002 lobbying lawmakers; in 2000 it spent $16 million. Reigning CEO Jack Welch had enormous influence and was consistently ranked CEO of the Year by the slavish business press; he was major Republican donor as well. GE director Sam Nunn was senator for Georgia for 27 years, and also sits on the boards of ChevronTexaco. GE’s Senior Vice President and General Counsel and Secretary, Benjamin W. Heineman, used to work for the US government’s Department of Health, Education and Welfare. General Electric's defense sector gave $221,200 to political campaigns in the 2004 election cycle, with 50 percent going to Democrats and 50 percent to Republicans. *Source: opensecrets.org

General Dynamics & GE/NBC Leading Suppliers of Depleted Uranium; GE AN GAU 8; 22' Long Nuclear Manure Spreaders!
http://memes.org/general-dynamics-amp-genbc-leading-suppliers-depleted-uranium-ge-gau-8-22039-long-nuclear-manure-spr
By zorroz - Posted on December 12th, 2007

Here is a list of the General Dynamic SuperFund sites. GE shares many of them. GE manufactures the 22 foot long "gattling gun" for the A-10 Warthog. It only uses 12" Depleted Uranium Shell. The A-10 is the primary source for "spreading" Depleted Uranium throught Iraq and Afghanistan. AT last count, the A-10's have spread nearly 465,000 tons of "GE.NBC Nuclear Manure". The equivalent radiation dose 130,000 Hiroshima bombs.

The Gun is 22 feet long, has twelve barrels, fires 1700 rounds per minute. All the Shells come from Nuclear Waste of General Electric and Westinghouse at TVA storage, Ky, Ohio & Tenn. Basically, we're using Nuclear Waste like Farmers use "Manure Spreaders". Farmer's Bring Life..GE "Spreading Death With Nuclear Manure"!

This is what one round looks like. This machine can fire up to 3,900 rounds per minute.  A round this size is NOT designed to kill a human, unless the human is inside a "machine". It is designed to "optimize" the maxium amount of "uranium" that can be packed into.  In other words, it is literally, specifically engineered to transfer tons of Rockefeller's "poison" from the US to the Middle East.  He has ALL the aircraft he needs for the job...he just needs "a broader war" to spread "the love that is US foreign policy" more evenly.

This is what a full load looks like.  I believe it's 12,000 pounds of "depleted uranium".  USAF wags call it "depleting iranians".  Just for the record, the British Royal Family holds the last remaining patent in the invention of "Plutonium".  My guess is that the UK is insisting that the US act as their proxy for stopping Iran from infringing on their patent rights by "recycling" Plutonium out of "used Nuclear fuel".

Yes, it's that big.  The A-10 was engineered AROUND the gattling gun.

There are three depleted uranium storage yards in the US.  All belong to Senator Rockefeller & David Rockefeller, General Electric/NBC and it's subsidiaries.  They call it the "The Today Show...because there may never be a Tomorrow!"

The storage site at Portsmouth, Ohio.  Most of this waste comes from GE/NBC facilities.


Just in case you buy the Pentagon's theory that depleted uranium is as harmless as corn flower...? This is a photo of Madame Marie Curie.  She and her husband discovered "radium and "polonium".  Radium is just another word for "uranium". She died of Leukemia due to her exposure to uranium. Her husband also died of uranium poisoning.

Birth defects in Afghanistan.  The Bush administration and "Chevron" which is the old Standard Oil Cartel...owned by Rockefeller fully intend to "spread" the Nuclear "wealth" throughout the Middle East.  We just need an "excuse" to get us in there! Iran...you're next!

These are the superfund sites that General Electric has created through it's Weapons Manufacturing operations.  The US fired 564,000 pounds of DU ordinance into Kuwait and Iraq during "Bush War 1".  To date, the US has fired at least  11.2 million pounds of DU into Iraq and Afghanistan.  General Electric/NBC stores 700 MILLION tons of DU/Uranium Hexaflouride in Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio.  Enough to kill the entire planet...1000 times.

Guess who became the most recent Economic Advisor...The Mighty Green GE Giant...Jeff Immelt



GE's Jeffrey Immelt, Green Energy Proponent, Becomes Obama Advisor
http://www.treehugger.com/files/2011/01/jeffrey-immelt-ge-obama.php
by Daniel Kessler (Oakland, CA)  on 01.22.11

President Obama has a new economic advisor, GE CEO Jeffrey R. Immelt, who will run Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, succeeding Paul A. Volcker. Immelt has been an outspoken advocate for clean energy, which he views as a boon both to his company, which produces wind turbines and other energy infrastructure products, and for the economy. Obama wants the council to "focus its work on finding new ways to encourage the private sector to hire and invest in American competitiveness." That could mean a renewed focus on green jobs and a price on carbon.

Immelt was an influential voice in USCAP, the coalition of business and environmental groups that tried to get a cap-and-trade bill through Congress. He has been quoted many times saying that a price on carbon will increase American competitiveness and help spark an energy revolution.

Immelt traveled with the President to India in November, when GE announced a $750 million order from India's Reliance Power for GE steam turbines.

Perhaps Immelt's influence will reignite the passion in the White House for comprehensive energy reform, including a price on carbon. A scan of Obama's top advisors reveals a cadre that are in favor of strong climate action, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, DOE Secretary Stephen Chu, and EPA head Lisa Jackson. The challenge of working with House Republicans remains, but Immelt should be another voice for action now.

General Electric owns much of the the Security and medical operations equipment contracts for the over 800 US Concentration Camps and the propaganda that will be used to assist in forcing varous racial groups into these death camps. MSNBC, owned by GE who also owns a large share of The History Channel, runs 8 hours a day of programming on what life is like in prison.  The point of the multiple documentaries to be aired for 8 hours every day it to allow the viewer to assimilate with the conditions in a concentration camp.  They show the priisoners having individuality and coping successfully with prison life.  They show how they can still develop relationships, still get an education, develop cliques, etc.   The whole point of this is a contracted psyops programming so that when they throw you and your family into the concentration camps, you will feel like it is normal after watching 8 hours a day of it. Out of all the MSNBC Documentaries, Lock Up comprises of an overwhelming majority of their production costs and scheduling.

Now lockup may be an ok program, but 20 full documentaries is not meant to learn about the issues of prisons.  These psyops videos are used to condition us. GE has a direct conflict of interest to reveal the truth about continuity of government, the current recession, false flag terrorism, who are the best statesmen running for president and of course...9/11.  The recession, the devaluation of the dollar, the fake war on terrorism (most importantly the lies about 9/11), and the disinformation about who the true presidential candidates are being used to get us into martial law and GE/MSNBC owns the propaganda and many of the security contracts for that martial law. So if GE actually told the truth about 9/11, they would have most of their funds cut. It is a simple matter of fascist elitests v. the American people and the victims (which everyone now is).

F.D.I.C. to Back $139 Billion in GE Capital Debt
http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2008/11/12/fdic-to-back-139-billion-in-ge-capital-debt/
General Electric said Wednesday that the federal government had agreed to insure as much as $139 billion in debt for its lending subsidiary, GE Capital. This is the second time in a month that G.E. has turned to a federal program aimed at helping companies during the global credit crisis. GE Capital is not a bank, but granting it access to a new program from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation may reassure investors and help the lender compete with banks that already have government-protected debt, a G.E. spokesman, Russell Wilkerson, told Bloomberg News. “Inclusion in this program will allow us to source our debt competitively with other participating financial institutions,” Mr. Wilkerson said. The F.D.I.C. program covers about $139 billion of G.E.’s debt, or 125 percent of total senior unsecured debt outstanding as of Sept. 30 and maturing by June 30. G.E. sent investors an e-mail letter about the program on Wednesday and posted the letter on its Web site. “Our participation is a positive development for our investors,” it said. G.E.’s finance businesses are able to seek F.D.I.C. debt coverage because its GE Capital subsidiary also owns a federal savings bank and an industrial loan company, both of which already qualify. Last month, G.E. started using a new Federal Reserve program aimed at reviving demand for the commercial paper for a wide variety of companies.

I am old enough to remember when the Russians were detonating ultra-powerful atomic bombs in the atmosphere so powerful that the light coming from a couple of them could be seen in the area where I lived back then, changing the colour of the sky at the time of the explosion. These mega-bombs were dropped not underground atomic bombs. That one bomb detonated in 1961 in Russia was ominous. People would scream if something similar was done now.

The governments in place back then told us all in detail about the nuclear tests but they did not tell us -- I was elementary school age but I can still remember in 1955 and much more so in 1961 what was in the newspapers --  about the true radiation levels and about the particles from these bombs that got sent into the upper and lower atmosphere and travelled over us in our part of Europe and went into the ground and the food and our bodies too. Then there was another one in 1965 which I think was the last one.

Somehow we absorbed all that radiation and particles crap and we are still here.
Let's see how it goes with Fukushima. Better have at least natural iodized salt in our food pantries.

Don't buy into the panic. The PTB will be happy if you do. Just be precautious.

Just like with the BP false flag, they told us that the planet would literally blow up.

Well though not as serious as first thought, we re still not out of the woods by any means and another 6.2 earthquake just struck. These US/GE criminal nuclear proliferation reactors are useless, careless, irresponsible and evil, unreliable military-industrial designs intended to produce nuclear weapons grade byproducts and completely (intrinsically) unsafe, even just the mere existence of their fuel alone is a grotesque, unstable and serious hazard.

There is no guarantee whatsoever that the #2 GE-arms merchant criminal reactor will not blow. It is severely damaged and not (at all actually, totally) "safely" 'shut down" since burning fuel is still inside a broken and damaged reactor containment vessel over the moderator materials, that could catch fire and/or EASILY explode (much more seriously) again at any minute. MORE SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THIS FUEL STILL OVER THE MODERATOR IT NEEDS TO ATTAIN FISSION AGAIN COULD STILL EASILY CAUSE CRITICALITY TO RESUME - THIS TIME, IN AN UNCONTAINED VESSEL! This reactor is now destroyed, still burning and out of control with no effective containment. Just cooling it will cause further explosions

These intrinsically dangerous reactor types should never have been built there, nor is this a safe area to even store the sorts of dangerous near-weapons grade nuclear arms proliferating fuels  that they depend upon.

Plus we still have no way of knowing when, where, how severe or how many more earthquakes the now crippled and very, very dangerous GE-Warbucks plant (that they should never, ever have bought, built or used there) will have to survive

The interesting media blackout here is the huge pollution of the ocean which the ubiquitous "they are now desperately  "pumping ("injecting") -in (irradiating) and (obviously) venting-out raw radioactive and heated sea water" to (gradually try to) cool off the damaged systems and overheated fuel rod pools WITH!

The ocean out there (and sea life) is(are) now getting huge doses of radiation not being measured in the air. None of this last-ditch desperate emergency 'solution" issue is being measured nor publicly reported upon in order to hide the true impact and broader scale of the colossal mistake that irresponsibly building/using such defective and poor US military-industrial LWR high pressure reactor garbage in an earthquake zone has maliciously and deliberately caused..

Somebody should be tracking these now highly radioactive ocean currents and fishermen should be warned

Of course meltdowns like this will always be huge news events because the public is scared of radiation.

Love to agree with you but sadly I cannot. This is all persistent, harmful, cancer-causing, mutagenic, sterility causing, hostile and poisonous unnatural pollution that takes eons just to disperse to near-acceptable limits, and it collects in many organisms and the food chain. None of this crap is "not dangerous".

The interesting media blackout here is the huge pollution of the ocean which the ubiquitous "they are now desperately  "pumping ("injecting") -in (irradiating) and (obviously) venting-out raw radioactive and heated sea water" to (gradually try to) cool off the damaged systems and overheated fuel rod pools WITH!

The ocean out there (and sea life) is(are) now getting huge doses of radiation not being measured in the air. None of this last-ditch desperate emergency 'solution" issue is being measured nor publicly reported upon in order to hide the true impact and broader scale of the colossal mistake that irresponsibly building/using such defective and poor US military-industrial LWR high pressure reactor garbage in an earthquake zone has maliciously and deliberately caused..

Somebody should be tracking these now highly radioactive ocean currents and fishermen should be warned

They are not "injecting" sea water that is all being turned into air vented steam - this is a patent lie!

They are "circulating-through" ocean water through the dangerous GE LWR reactor garbage and it's dangerous, hazardous highly radioactive enriched fuel rod pools and cores desperately trying to cool down the now super-hot dangerous enriched fuel rods while generating as little dangerous hydrogen-steam and pressure as possible to gradually raise a level of gradually cooler water to maybe "re-contain" (hopefully finally covering again in time -for what?) the dangerous hot and self heating fuel bundles with once again to cool them once again with.

The word "injecting" is a lie, crafted to conceal the truth about this desperate last ditch effort. This now heated and irradiated raw sea water has to go back out somewhere (out into the ocean again) to be useful for this task, unless they are containing and refrigerating and pumping it back through again. (NOT)

Simply injecting water into a self-heating pool does not cool anything down, you need to withdraw the hot, heated water and replace it as fast as possible with colder water to gradually douse the burning rods.

Explosion and Fire at Fourth Japanese Nuclear Reactor ... Government Says High Levels of Radiation Being Released

Kyodo News noted earlier that Reactor Number 4 has caught fire:

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cT8i_NBjP40/TX7Pbf51vMI/AAAAAAAAAvc/sJD8mWssMm0/s400/4.jpg)

The Herald Sun reported:

    RADIATION levels near a quake-stricken nuclear plant are now harmful to human health, Japan's government says after explosions and a fire at the facility.

    "There is no doubt that unlike in the past, the figures are the level at which human health can be affected," said chief government spokesman Yukio Edano.

    ***

    Although the number-four reactor was shut for maintenance when the quake and tsunami struck last Friday, "spent nuclear fuel in the reactor heated up, creating hydrogen and triggered a hydrogen explosion".

    He said radioactive substances were leaked along with the hydrogen.

    "Please keep in mind that what is burning is not nuclear fuel itself," Mr Edano said. "We'll do our best to put out or control the fire as soon as possible."

AP now says the fire has now been put out, although the Japanese government says that high levels of radiation are being released:

    Prime Minister Naoto Kan said radiation has spread from four reactors of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in Fukushima province, one of the hardest-hit in Friday's 9.0-magnitude earthquake and the ensuing tsunami that has killed more than 10,000 people. "The level seems very high, and there is still a very high risk of more radiation coming out,"

    ***

    The fire was put out. Even though it was unoperational, the fourth reactor was believed to be the source of the elevated radiation release because of the hydrogen release that triggered the fire.

    ***

    "It is likely that the level of radiation increased sharply due to a fire at Unit 4," Edano said. "Now we are talking about levels that can damage human health.

Hopefully, Edano is right, and the high levels of radiation were due to a temporary fire, which has been put out.

However, high radiation levels were reported before the fire, when reactor number 2 exploded earlier today, and the government said that its containment core had been breached.

Atlantic? You will have to wait for the whole batch of radiation to go through the Panama Canal.
It will be a while since this happens, if ever.

We in the 50's and 60's went through all the atmospheric nuclear bombs fallouts big time.

Linda Howe has a disturbing new interview up here:
http://www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=1825&category=Environment (http://www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=1825&category=Environment)


TOKYO IN REAL DANGER OF MASSIVE AFTERSHOCKS



EXCERPT:



Interview:


John Rundle, Ph.D., Distinguished Prof. of Physics and Geology and Founder, Open Hazards Group, University of California – Davis, California:  “Yes, I would agree with JMA. The initial aftershocks were in the area of Sendai in the first hours after the main event. Since March 11, 2011, the aftershocks have begun to migrate to the southwest towards Tokyo. They have basically reached Tokyo.

With such a huge earthquake, a magnitude 9.0, according to common seismological principles and observed laws we would expect to see Japan aftershocks now include one magnitude 8.0 quake and roughly ten magnitude 7.0 earthquakes and roughly 100 magnitude 6.0 earthquakes. So far the largest aftershock magnitude has been a 6.8.

Furthermore, in Japanese history in 1854, there were two earthquakes of magnitude 8.4 separated in time by only 31 hours, basically occurring right next to each other. In 1944 and 1946, again two earthquakes occurred right next to each other magnitude 8.1 and separated by two years.

    [ Editor’s Note:  Wikipedia - The 1854 Ansei-Tokai earthquake was the first of the Ansei Great Earthquakes(1854-1855). It occurred at about 09:00 local time on December 23, 1854. It had a magnitude of 8.4 and caused a damaging tsunami. More than 10,000 buildings were completely destroyed and there were at least 2,000 casualties. The 1854 Ansei-Nankai earthquake of similar magnitude hit southern Nonshu the following day on December 24, 1854.]

So, the idea that a 9.0 earthquake could have maybe an 8.0 aftershock close by and separated by a fairly short time is well supported by historic data. The fact that the aftershocks seem to be migrating towards Tokyo to me is very, very worrisome. If a magnitude 7.0 happens under Tokyo at shallow enough depth, it could destroy Tokyo. So people have reason to be concerned.

Furthermore, the earthquake of September 1, 1923, was the Great Canto Earthquake, did destroy Tokyo. It occurred in Tokyo Bay and caused a tsunami that inundated part of Tokyo. There were fires that followed and the entire metropolis of Tokyo and Yokohama was destroyed and 150,000 people roughly died. We don’t know the exact number. That was a magnitude 7.9 event.

Remember the classic anime film Akira? It foreshadowed Tokyo being destroyed by a nuclear explosion.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akira_(film)
Quote
On July 16, 1988, Tokyo is destroyed by an apparent nuclear explosion, leading to the start of World War III. Thirty-one years after Tokyo's destruction, Neo-Tokyo, a new metropolis built on an artificial island in Tokyo Bay, is gripped by political strife, anti-government terrorism, and gang violence. Shotaro Kaneda leads his bōsōzoku gang, the Capsules, which find themselves in a turf war with a rival gang known as the Clowns. As Kaneda and his best friend, Tetsuo, battle a pair of Clowns on a highway, Tetsuo almost runs into a child with wizened features and is injured when his bike suddenly explodes. Tetsuo and the child, Takashi, are captured by armed soldiers. Kaneda and his gang are taken in for questioning. While they are being held, Kaneda unsuccessfully flirts with a young woman named Kei, a member of the terrorist Resistance. Kaneda, Kei, and the remaining Capsules are later released.

are the reports about gulf seafood causing illness wrong?  =(


@scootle!
yesss! follow the money! every time!
that's where the reptoids gather, wink

We can exchange in PM, as Id rather not distract from the main thread, but short answer; so far I have not heard of any Atlantic basin contamination of food-sources, however there are massive levels of contamination within the gulf. It hasn't appeared to leech into the Atlantic too much from what local fisherman have said. But give the currents time.

I don't think those reactors are being hit by Stuxnet... if they literally are trying to keep them cool with hoses of seawater from fire trucks. That is pretty low tech. I read that yesterday either reaction #2 or one of the spent-rod decay chambers overheated when seawater boiled off when the fire truck ran out of gas for a short period.

By the way, the rooms with the spend fuel rods should be a larger problem in coming months, assuming that they can actually quench the main reactors, because they continually need cooling water and that means new workers will have to come in and rig a way to provide the water.

It's a form of technology, and they are a technology driven culture. Although if stuxnet had damaged their computer systems, they would have ot go low tech in order to cool the system down.

Air France, Lufthansa Move Japan-Based Crews to Seoul Amid Radiation Risk
By Cornelius Rahn and Steve Rothwell - Mar 15, 2011 12:39 PM CT

Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHA) rerouted its Tokyo flights to the southern-Japanese cities of Nagoya and Osaka, citing the risk of nuclear fallout and aftershocks following last week’s earthquake and tsunami.

The German carrier’s services are also stopping in Seoul for a crew change to avoid having staff stay overnight in Japan, spokesman Michael Lamberty said in an interview. Air France-KLM (AF) Group is likewise routing flights via the South Korean capital and other European carriers are taking similar steps.

“We’re doing this to be prepared for all possible scenarios,” Lamberty said by phone from Lufthansa’s hub in Frankfurt. “The radioactive particles are the main concern.”

The Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant was today rocked by two further explosions and a fire as workers there struggled to avert the risk of a meltdown, heightening concern about radiation leaks after March 11’s earthquake and tsunami.

The Fukushima Daiichi plant has seven pools dedicated to spent fuel rods. These are located at the top of six reactor buildings – or were until explosions and fires ravaged the plant. On the ground level there is a common pool in a separate building that was critical damaged by the tsunami. Each reactor building pool holds 3,450 fuel rod assemblies and the common pool holds 6,291 fuel rod assemblies. Each assembly holds sixty-three fuel rods. In short, the Fukushima Daiichi plant contains over 600,000 spent fuel rods – a massive amount of radiation that will soon be released into the atmosphere.

Russia to deploy cruise missiles on Kuril Islands

English.news.cn   2011-03-02 19:02:25

VLADIVOSTOK, March 2 (Xinhua) -- Russia will deploy anti-ship cruise missiles and an advanced air defense system on the Kuril Islands, including the four Russian-held Southern Kurils claimed by Japan, Interfax reported Wednesday.

Russia will set up Yakhont anti-ship missiles and the Tor-M2 missile shield, Interfax news agency quoted an official of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces as saying.

The cruise missiles could be deployed in Iturup and Kunashir, two of the four disputed Pacific islands which have major military sites in the Kuril Islands, a move likely to rouse indignation in Japan.

A military buildup plan for the Kuril Islands has already been submitted to Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, presumably including the deployments of the Yakhont missiles and the Tor-M2 system.

Russia will continue consolidating its military presence on the Kuril Islands seen as a strategic region.

  Strange.  Why would the Russians do this?

If the Japan event was HAARP and if the Russian held Southern Kurils were part of the reason it could have been for two reasons (speculation).

1. I don't know how accurate HARRP is but if the Russians were the target then the epicenter was only off by 450 miles.
2. The whole region is now a hot zone and that makes detecting the movement of nuclear weapons by the Russians or the U.S. very difficult to detect. Heck the U.S. could have blown up a Russian base and the whole world would have missed it.

Japan in nuclear standby

 (http://rt.com/news/japan-nuclear-standby/)

Japan may be losing the battle at the Fukushima nuclear power plant after a rise in radiation levels meant attempts to stabilize the situation had to be halted.

Smoke has been seen coming from the site on Wednesday, which has already been hit with explosions and fires since Friday's mega-quake .

Japanese news agency NHK broadcast pictures of what seemed to be a column of smoke rising from the reactor at Unit 3 of the Fukushima-1 nuclear plant, hours after a fire broke out at the nuclear reactor.

Tokyo Electric Power Co suggested it could indicate the water inside the spent fuel pool within the reactor could be boiling. The reactor itself is feared to have cracked.

Further operations at the facility were suspended to prevent Fukushima-1 plant from melting down. Due to a surge in radiation, all 50 remaining workers who were dealing with the crisis were withdrawn from the facility on Wednesday, but allowed to return almost an hour later, according to Kyodo news agency. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said the process of cooling the reactors with water was disrupted by the need to pull the workers out.

Japan’s Defense Ministry decided to use helicopters and fire trucks to spray water and boric acid to prevent further radiation leaks and to cool down the reactors. But the operation had to be aborted due to high radiation levels over the facility.

Japan has requested boric acid from South Korea. Seoul on Wednesday said it would provide 53 tons of the acid, which amounts to almost all the country has, except for a quantity for domestic use.

The Kyodo agency has been reporting on the status of the Fukushima-1 reactors. As of Wednesday evening, cooling has failed at reactors 1, 2, and 3.  The buildings of the reactors have also been damaged by the series of recent explosions. Seawater was pumped into the reactors to cool them down.

Reactor 1’s core is partially melted. The fuel rods in reactor 2 have been fully exposed, temporarily, and its containment vessel is damaged. The reactor 3 area revealed high levels of radiation; there are fears that the containment vessel of the reactor and its core may have been damaged and that radiation is leaking out.

Potential meltdown is feared at reactor 2.

Reactor 4 suffered an explosion at the pool storing spent fuel rods. No water has been poured in to cool the pool and the water level has not been observed. Two fires were seen at the premises on Tuesday and Wednesday. Spraying of boric acid in the reactor facility is being considered, as well as using a water cannon truck to cool the spent nuclear fuel pool.

Reactors 5 and 6 have been showing a slight rise in the temperature of the spent fuel pools.

Alert: Fukushima Coverup, 40 Years of Spent Nuclear Rods Blown Sky High

Paul Joseph Watson and Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
March 15, 2011 (http://www.infowars.com/alert-fukushima-coverup-40-years-of-spent-nuclear-rods-blown-sky-high/)

Infowars analysis: In addition to under reporting the fires at Fukushima, the Japanese government has not told the people about the ominous fact that the nuclear plant site is a hellish repository where a staggering number of spent fuel rods have accumulated for 40 years.

A contributor to the Occupational and Environmental Medicine list who once worked on nuclear waste issues provided additional information about Fukushima’s spent fuel rod assemblies, according to a post on the FDL website.

“NIRS has a Nov 2010 powerpoint from Tokyo Electric Power Company (in english) detailing the modes and quantities of spent fuel stored at the Fukushima Daiichi plant where containment buildings #1 and #3 have exploded,” he wrote on March 14.

The Powerpoint is entitled Integrity Inspection of Dry Storage Casks and Spent Fuels at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and can be read in full here. The document adds a new and frightening dimension to the unfolding disaster.

The Fukushima Daiichi plant has seven pools dedicated to spent fuel rods. These are located at the top of six reactor buildings – or were until explosions and fires ravaged the plant. On the ground level there is a common pool in a separate building that was critical damaged by the tsunami. Each reactor building pool holds 3,450 fuel rod assemblies and the common pool holds 6,291 fuel rod assemblies. Each assembly holds sixty-three fuel rods. In short, the Fukushima Daiichi plant contains over 600,000 spent fuel rods – a massive amount of radiation that will soon be released into the atmosphere.

It should be obvious by now that the authorities in Japan are lying about the effort to contain the situation in order to mollify the public. It is highly likely there are no workers on the site attempting to contain the disaster.

Earlier today, a report was issued indicating that over 70% of these spent fuel rods are now damaged – in other words, they are emitting radiation or will soon. The disclosure reveals that authorities in Japan – who have consistently played down the danger and issued conflicting information – are guilty of criminal behavior and endangering the lives of countless people.

On Tuesday, it was finally admitted that meltdowns of the No. 1 and No. 2 reactor cores are responsible for the release of a massive amount of radiation.

After reporting that a fire at the No. 4 reactor was contained, the media is reporting this evening that it has resumed. The media predictably does not bother to point out why the fire is uncontainable – the fuel rods are no longer submerged in water and are exposed to the atmosphere and that is why they are burning and cannot be extinguished.

It cannot be stressed enough that the situation at Fukushima represents the greatest environmental disaster in the history of humanity, far more dangerous that Chernobyl, and the government of that country is responsible.

If the Japan event was HAARP and if the Russian held Southern Kurils were part of the reason it could have been for two reasons (speculation).

1. I don't know how accurate HARRP is but if the Russians were the target then the epicenter was only off by 450 miles.
2. The whole region is now a hot zone and that makes detecting the movement of nuclear weapons by the Russians or the U.S. very difficult to detect. Heck the U.S. could have blown up a Russian base and the whole world would have missed it.

  Thanks Brocke.  I hate these nukes and radiation.  We are in an evil world run by evil men.

Why Fukushima’s “spent” fuel rods will continue to catch fire
15 March 2011
, by Kirk James Murphy, M.D. (FDL)
http://my.firedoglake.com/kirkmurphy/2011/03/15/why-fukushimas-spent-fuel-rods-will-continue-to-catch-fire/

Excerpt:

Why did the spent fuel rod pool at reactor 4 catch fire again today?  Yesterday the Institute for Energy and Enviromental Research‘s  Arjun Makhijani wrote a very detailed report that answers this question.  In his report he quoted extensively from the 2006 study perfomed by the National Research Council of the National Academies.  Their report tells us:


“The ability to remove decay heat from the spent fuel also would be reduced as the water level drops, especially when it drops below the tops of the fuel assemblies.

This would cause temperatures in the fuel assemblies to rise, accelerating the oxidation of the zirconium alloy (zircaloy) cladding that encases the uranium oxide pellets. This oxidation reaction can occur in the presence of both air and steam and is strongly exothermic—that is, the reaction releases large quantities of heat, which can further raise cladding temperatures.

The steam reaction also generates large quantities of hydrogen….

These oxidation reactions [with a loss of coolant] can become locally self-sustaining … at high temperatures (i.e., about a factor of 10 higher than the boiling point of water) if a supply of oxygen and/or steam is available to sustain the reactions…. The result could be a runaway oxidation reaction — referred to in this report as a zirconium cladding fire — that proceeds as a burn front (e.g., as seen in a forest fire or a fireworks sparkler) along the axis of the fuel rod toward the source of oxidant (i.e., air or steam)….

As fuel rod temperatures increase, the gas pressure inside the fuel rod increases and eventually can cause the cladding to balloon out and rupture.

At higher temperatures (around 1800°C [approximately 3300°F]), zirconium cladding reacts with the uranium oxide fuel to form a complex molten phase containing zirconium-uranium oxide.

Beginning with the cladding rupture, these events would result in the release of radioactive fission gases and some of the fuel’s radioactive material in the form of aerosols into the building that houses the spent fuel pool and possibly into the environment. If the heat from one burning assembly is not dissipated, the fire could spread to other spent fuel assemblies in the pool, producing a propagating zirconium cladding fire.

The high-temperature reaction of zirconium and steam has been described quantitatively since at least the early 1960s….”




Translation for laypeople:  Without enough water to cover the, the fuel rods will keep on igniting, just like trick birthday candles keep re-igniting after we blow them out.  Just like trick birthday candles, the only way to put out the fuel rods is to put them under water.  That’s why even after Monday’s reactor 4 spent fuel rod fire was quenched, the spent fuel rod pool caught fire again this afternoon.

Unlike trick birthday candles, the spent fuel rods burn hot (3300 degrees F) enough so that the radioactive material in the rods is aerosolized: carried into the atmosphere in clouds of hot smoke.   And unlike our trick birthday candles, the spent fuel rods in reactor building 4 are four stories off the ground – just like the other five reactor spent fuel pools at Fukushima.  And unlike our trick birthday candles, right now the radioactivity around the spent fuel rods is so high that no one can approach them to put out the fire.

40 years of spent fuel rods were stored on site and on TOP of the reactors in cooling/containment pools. And the TOPS of those reactors blew, throwing these spent rods all over the place, or at least vaporizing the water, and exposing the spent rods.

Now, the containment facility was started in 2010 but not operational until 2012.  ...  what about the other two plant sites?? Any word on what damage they had? Any risk of blowing up?  Fuel rods stored in the same fashion?

I believe Japan was HAARP'd !

To give an idea of what Japan is going through:  The last earthquake I experienced, I was one mile from the epicenter and it was a 4.6.

I was sitting in my chair reading & when the shaking started, I tried to run outside (away from buildings).  Every time I stood up, I was thrown back into my chair.  I could not get "up & out" for all the shaking.  Then, it stopped, after several tries.

The entire Country of Japan is going through hell!

When each 110 storey, half a million tonne tower collapsed on 9/11, the ground rumbling measured a 2.1. A 9.1 earthquake has 32 billion times more energy than that.
Title: MANY EXTRA DANGERS IN USING PLUTONIUM IN MOX FUEL REACTORS
Post by: Letsbereal on March 16, 2011, 12:52:16 pm
TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF MOX FUEL IN LIGHT WATER REACTORS/THE REACTOR OPTION http://www.nirs.org/reactorwatch/mox/puupdat4.txt


1. How Does It Work ?  Major Differences From Conventional LWRs

#Various Types of Fuel Assemblies Necessary To Burn MOX


- For boiling water reactors, four to six different plutonium contents designs are used

- All these factors make the fuel production extremely complicated and difficult, compared to the one-standard uranium fuel for conventional LWRs.


#Reduced Efficacy of Control Rods

- MOX reactor is more sensitive to variations in power. A fraction of delayed-neutrons in Pu-239 is about one-third that of uranium-235.

- Efficacy of control rods is somewhat reduced, and safety margins are lower. Plutonium has a slightly higher propensity to capture thermal neutrons than uranium.  

- The additional demands on control systems are largest for those plutonium fuels in which plutonium-239 content is highest, as in MOX fuel using weapon-grade plutonium.

- For these reasons, the MOX fuel assemblies should be placed away from the control rods.  

- Embrittlement of the reactor vessel in the end, which is another factor for safety concerns. The higher average energy of the neutron spectrum of MOX increases the rate of radiation damage to structural materials in and around the core.


#Danger of Losing Control of the Reactor Is Greater with MOX

Conventional LWRs are designed to decrease the reactivity when the temperature rises.

- But when using Pu-239 as fuel, heating of the core from an increase in reaction rate tends to increase the reaction rate still further.  

This is called the positive temperature coefficient of reactivity, meaning there is a danger of losing control of the reactor by accelerated chain reaction of fissioning.


2. Will MOX Option Really Eliminate Plutonium?

- Plutonium from reprocessed MOX spent fuel is degraded in quality and cannot be used as fuel.

- The scale of effort required to overcome the economics and the technological difficulties is overwhelming.



3. Impacts on Radioactive Waste Management?

- MOX spent fuel contains more fission products than uranium spent fuel.

The important factor in managing spent fuel is the heat generation caused by the highly radioactive fission products.

Since spent MOX fuel contains much more fission products, the heat generation from MOX spent fuel is twice as high as that of spent uranium fuel after 10 years and three times as high after 100 years
.(14)

Because of the existence of more plutonium, there is a criticality concern for geologic repository, and requires separate licenses for disposal.

- This means additional costs and delays.  

- In other words, spent MOX fuel disposal will require more space, more time, and more substantial costs.


4. The Health and Environmental Effects of the Use of MOX

- It is known as one of the most toxic elements.  


It emits high energy alpha radiation, and has harmful biological effects.
 
Alpha radiation has a very short range but very intense ionization power.  

If exposed on the surface of the skin, the skin works as a shield and will prevent its penetration into the body, but all of its ionizing power will be focused on the small spot, causing burns and killing the skin tissue.

If inhaled into the body, the alpha particle will go in through the respiratory tract, and enter the lung.  

Due to its long half-life, it will stay in the body permanently, emitting alpha radiation, and killing the surrounding tissues by strong ionization.  

If plutonium is taken into the body in soluble form (e.g. plutonium nitrate) through food chain, it will enter the blood stream, and into the bones, liver and genital organs where it will be enriched.  

Alpha radiation leads to reactions in the cells of living things.  

It can cause damage to the nucleus and DNA of the cell, in effect causing genetic damage in descendants, particularly if germ cells are affected.

#Dangers of Resuspension in the Environment

In the event of a contamination of the environment with plutonium, the whirling up and inhalation of plutonium particles, known as resuspension, plays an important role.  

- If there is fire, and plutonium becomes airborne into fine aerosol particles, plutonium contamination of the environment will extend to a far larger scale, landing on ground, contaminating a vast wider area. plutonium remains effective over very long periods affecting the health of the people and the environment.

#Accident Scenario When Burning MOX

In such accidents, not only would readily volatile noble gases, like iodine and caesium be released to the environment, but a small portion of the actinides, including plutonium and neptunium would be released.  

As the activity of the actinides is substantially higher in the case of MOX, the consequences of such severe accidents become more serious.

When MOX fuels are used, the probability of having such serious accidents or trouble would increase due to the high content of plutonium in the fuel.  

Even if an accident is not a serious one, it could become serious since even a small portion of the inventory of actinides released to the environment could cause significant radiological consequences
.

According to a comparative analysis of possible consequences of a core meltdown accident in the German Kruemmel nuclear power plant with and without the use of MOX fuel:

*The radiation exposure from inhalation of radioactive materials during the passage of the radioactive cloud is higher by several dozen percent than if uranium fuel elements were exclusively used.

*Radiation exposure through the route of inhalation of remobilized long-lived actinide isotopes is more than doubled.

*The land areas to become out of use by long-term contamination increases as the resuspension pathway is a limiting factor and the greater part of the dose resulting from the pathway comes from the actinides.


#Worker Hazards

The National Academy of Sciences concludes that the main environment, safety and health related issues in weapons plutonium disposition that needs special attention with the addition of weapons plutonium is the occupational risk from fuel preparation.

- Because plutonium is more radioactive than uranium, greater safety concern is required when handling the material in whatever way. The ICRP sets a standard for occupational exposure to radiation at 100 mSv over 5 years, with a maximum of 50 mSv in any one year.  

- If you interpret this in comparison for workers at an uranium fuel fabrication plant with MOX fuel fabrication plant workers, the standards for protection against inhalation are roughly two Million times stricter in plutonium processing than in uranium processing.

- Another factor is the gamma radiation exposure which comes from americium, which accumulates as plutonium decays into americium as time lapses. Gamma radiation penetrates through almost anything, so it is very difficult to protect workers from this radiation.

Fuel pools do not sit ontop of the reactors.... they are on the top floor of the reactor building but are removed from the vessel...... the rods if uncovered could regain criticality whereas Keffective > .95..........

Update to Information Sheet Regarding the Tohoku Earthquake

The Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan (FEPC) Washington DC Office
As of 10:15AM (EST), March 16, 2011
Highest Radiation Levels

At 6:40AM (JST) on March 16, a radiation level of 400 milli sievert per hour was recorded outside the west side of the secondary containment building of the Unit 3 reactor at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

At 6:40AM on March 16, a radiation level of 100 milli sievert per hour was recorded outside the west side of the secondary containment building of the Unit 4 reactor at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

At 8:47AM on March 16, a radiation level of 150 milli sievert per hour was recorded outside the secondary containment building of Unit 2 reactor of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

At 8:47AM on March 16, a radiation level of 300 milli sievert per hour was recorded between the exteriors of the secondary containment buildings of Unit 2 reactor and Unit 3 reactor of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

At 8:47AM on March 16, a radiation level of 400 milli sievert per hour was recorded outside the secondary containment building of Unit 3 reactor of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

At 8:47AM on March 16, radiation level of 100 milli sievert per hour was recorded outside the secondary containment building of Unit 4 reactor of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

At 10:40AM on March 16, a radiation level of 10 milli sievert per hour was recorded at the main gate of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

At 4:10PM on March 16, a radiation level of 1530 micro sievert per hour was recorded at the main gate of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

For comparison, a human receives 2400 micro sievert per year from natural radiation in the form of sunlight, radon, and other sources. One chest CT scan generates 6900 micro sievert per scan.

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 1 reactor

    * At 6:55AM on March 16, the pressure inside the reactor core was measured at 0.17 MPa. The water level inside the reactor core was measured at 1.8 meters below the top of the fuel rods.

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 2 reactor

    * At 6:55AM on March 16, the pressure inside the reactor core was measured at 0.043 MPa. The water level inside the reactor core was measured at 1.4 meters below the top of the fuel rods.

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 3 reactor

    * At 8:37AM on March 16, white smoke was observed emanating from the vicinity of the secondary containment building.
    * At 9:55AM on March 16, the pressure inside the reactor core was measured at 0.088 MPa. The water level inside the reactor core was measured at 1.9 meters below the top of the fuel rods.
    * At 11:32AM on March 16, the Japanese government announced that the possibility of significant damage to the primary containment vessel was low.

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 reactor

    * At 4:08AM on March 15, the temperature of the spent fuel pool was measured at 183 degrees Fahrenheit.
    * At 5:45AM on March 16, a fire occurred in the vicinity of the third floor of the secondary containment building.
    * At 7:26AM on March 16, no flames or smoke was observed and thus it was concluded that the fire extinguished on its own accord.

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 5 reactor

    * At 4:00AM on March 16, the temperature of the spent fuel pool was measured at 141 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 6 reactor

    * At 4:00AM on March 16, the temperature of the spent fuel pool was measured at 137 degrees Fahrenheit.

Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant and Accompanying Facilities

    * As of 12:00PM on March 15, power generation of all facilities was restored to the commercial electricity grid from backup power generation systems. It was confirmed that no fire, damage to equipment, injuries to personnel occurred. Radiation levels were measured at a normal level of safety.

This update conflicts with the rumors that have been flying around regarding the state of the used fuel pool at unit 4. Though the temperature in the pool is high enough to cause operators to worry a bit about getting some cooling water into that pool before it gets too much hotter, it is still almost 20 degrees F below the boiling point of water.

... a 20kM radius is being looked at because, when a nuclear facility receives its operating license one of the analyses performed is the dose rate based on skyshine plume dissipation and it is modeled that the fallout from an event will be greatest within this area...... most plants in US are at 10 miles.....directionality and wind speed are obviously involved.... but a probability is still obtained....

Coolant water is supposed to be circulated through the fuel pools..... these pools are 30 ft deep and consist of demin water, and very susceptible to FME....  like I said before they are trying to keep K_effective < 0.95.... once its that high the fuel pools have reached criticality....

The reports you hear conflict each other.

Some reports say the cores are melting down or on fire  and other reports say all is just fine  go drink some more kool aid..

The truth is being hidden  and thousands more will die all because the Japan government waited toolong to tell the truth..

UNCENSORED HEADLINE NEWS: Japan nuclear plant disaster: warning of an ‘apocalypse’ as fallout hits danger levels


UNCENSORED POST
The link below will let you listen to geoscientist Leuren Moret speak on the radio in Sydney two days ago.  Leuren has worked for nuclear research labs and has been tutored by Dr. Marion Fulk, a former Manhatten Project scientist, whose message she is carrying to the world.  In this interview she tells us that she and her scientific friends around the world are “terrified” at the situation in Japan.  She told me in an email today that she does think that HAARP was the cause of this, too.  She will have her own web-site up soon, http://leurenmoret.org/

Japan nuclear plant disaster: warning of an ‘apocalypse’ as fallout hits danger levels

Japan’s ongoing nuclear emergency was compared to an “apocalypse” by the European Union’s energy commissioner last night as dangerous levels of radiation were detected around the crippled power plant.

By Martin Evans, and Gordon Rayner 6:32AM GMT 16 Mar 2011

More than 140,000 people living up to 18 miles away from the power station were warned to stay indoors and lock windows as the Japanese government announced that radiation levels were high enough to damage human health.

As officials tried to bring the problem under control, they said they were contemplating using helicopters to spray water over the plant in an attempt to prevent the spread of radioactive particles.

A third explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi complex is believed to have damaged the protective casing of No 2 reactor, increasing radiation levels sharply in the surrounding area. At one point, readings near the plant briefly topped 400 millisieverts an hour, a level high enough to cause radiation sickness and long-term damage to health if workers had not been wearing protective suits.

It later emerged that two workers from the power station were missing following the explosion at reactor No 4.

The head of the UN’s nuclear agency, Yukiya Amano, said there was a “possibility” reactor No 2′s core had been damaged, but he added that the increase in radiation levels was due to a fire at reactor No 4. Last night the Japanese government said radiation readings both at the plant and in the surrounding area were dropping.

The levels in Tokyo, 140 miles away, were recorded as being up to 10 times the norm for a period.

As the Japanese government called for international help, an EU meeting of energy ministers was told that Japan had lost control of the situation.

Guenther Oettinger, Europe’s energy commissioner, said: “There is talk of an apocalypse and I think the word is particularly well chosen. Practically everything is out of control. I cannot exclude the worst in the hours and days to come.” A grim-faced Naoto Kan, the Japanese prime minister, said on television: “The possibility of further radioactive leakage is heightening. We are making every effort to prevent the leak from spreading. I know that people are very worried but I would like to ask you to act calmly.” But he also expressed anger with executives at the company running the Fukushima plant for failing to inform him of the explosions. At one point he was quoted as saying, “What the hell is going on?” as he watched developments on television.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company which runs the plant disclosed yesterday that there had been four explosions since Friday’s earthquake knocked out power at the 40-year-old power station. Three blasts were heard by locals, but it was more than 20 hours before it emerged that a fire at a fourth reactor had occurred following another explosion at daybreak on Tuesday, local time.

Back-up diesel generators, which were supposed to keep the reactor cores cool, failed when the 30ft tsunami swept through the region. Engineers fought to prevent a catastrophic meltdown.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said it was possible that the fuel cores had been damaged in the blasts, increasing the possibility of a full-scale meltdown. It criticised the bosses of the Fukushima plant for their lack of transparency regarding the ongoing situation.

Yukio Edano, the chief cabinet secretary, confirmed radiation levels were at worryingly high levels. He told residents in the exclusion zone: “Please stay indoors. Please close windows and make your homes airtight. These are figures that potentially affect health.”

The US navy reported that a number of its helicopter crew, who had been helping with the relief operation, had shown signs of low levels of radiation contamination. Officials said 70 workers at the Fukushima complex had also received high doses of radiation.

The FTSE 100 share index fell by 1.4 per cent as stock markets around the world slumped in response to a 10.6 per cent drop in Japan’s Nikkei index.

  Strange.  Why would the Russians do this?

Will Russia be able to defend Kuril Islands if Japan attacks?

Anti-Russian hysteria continues in Japan. On February 7, Japanese revanchists who gathered at the walls of the Russian Embassy in Tokyo demanded that Russia returns four Kuril Islands, and abused the Russian national flag in the process. The police did not intervene in the proceedings, acting as interested spectators.
Perhaps the far-right were inspired by Prime Minister Naoto Kan, who spoke on the same day with an official address in which he called the recent visit of Dmitry Medvedev to the Southern Kuriles "inexcusable rudeness".

The next day, February 8, the Russian Embassy received a letter with a bullet and a note from which the Russian diplomats learned that the "northern territories is a Japanese land".

Moscow's position boils down to the fact that four Kuril Islands, whose ownership is disputed by the Japanese, belong to Russia as the successor to the USSR following World War II.

So far the battle for the Southern Kurils is diplomatic. But who knows what would the Japanese do when it becomes clear that their diplomatic efforts are futile? The history has precedents where the ownership of certain territories was disputed at a battlefield.

The latest example of this kind is directly related to Russia - the actions of Georgia in August of 2008 in South Ossetia. Most of the experts did not consider a possibility of an attack. Until the last minute most of them were confident that the little Georgia will not risk fighting with a much stronger Russia. However, as the experience shows, Saakashvili who dreamt of the "return of the historic Georgian territories," was not even afraid of Russian nuclear weapons.

Japan is a much more formidable opponent in all respects. Of course, we can assume that the Japanese leaders, in contrast to Georgia, are much saner and that the economic relationship between Japan and Russia will not allow the conflict flare up. However, economics does not always dominate politics. As evident from history, sometimes the political attitudes may outweigh the economic benefits.

The behavior of the Japanese leadership cannot but cause concern. In 2007, then Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that it was time to get away from the postwar regime and give the army due respect. In other words, Japan has been steadily reviving the "fighting spirit of the nation" to return to the club of the world powers.

Military spending in Japan is also growing. In 2010 the country ranked fifth in the world in terms of military spending (approximately 44.3 billion dollars annually), outrunning Germany and conceding only to the U.S. (600 billion), China (81.4 billion dollars), the UK (48.8 billion dollars) and France (45 billion dollars). Most likely, considering that the latter are significantly reducing their military budgets, in 2011 Japan could get to the third place in the world and would compete with China for the second. Russia is far behind Japan in terms of these indicators.

In this regard, in recent years the Japanese have been actively building up their offensive potential. It now has an entire set of attributes of superpower, including military preparedness. For example, Japan has aircraft carriers, a modern missile defense system, and powerful air forces of "self-defense".

Overall, the Japanese self-defense forces, not counting civil employees, amount to 240,000 people and are among the most powerful in the region. This is substantially contributed by regular updates of military equipment. A specific role is given to the Navy that includes over 250 combat ships, support ships and boats.

In addition, the Navy has 40 destroyers, of which eight are guided missile defense destroyers capable of hitting targets at long range. The Japanese naval forces continue to grow, including amphibious.

Among them there are four (according to other reports, five) "flagship" ships that are helicopter carriers. They perform both the role of aircraft carriers and amphibious units. Moreover, helicopter destroyer of the Hyuga class introduced in 2009, according to the general opinion of military experts, is a light aircraft carrier, which can be rapidly converted to receive military aircraft.

It was called a destroyer only to avoid postwar restrictions on the ability to have ships of this class. In the coming years two more ships of this class with a displacement of 19,500 tons and capable of accommodating every 14 helicopters, four thousand soldiers and 50 trucks will be introduced.

Currently there are five Japanese small and medium landing ships, as well as at least eight landing crafts, with which they can land troops in heavy weather and natural conditions. The landing crafts alone can land up to 36 armored vehicles, or more than 4.2 thousand marines at a time. In addition, the Japanese leaders do not rule out future significant increase in the number of amphibious ships and boats.

Furthermore, government officials declare their intention to revive full-fledged Marines, creating "mobile assault units," designed to capture the coastal strip of the probable enemy.

That is, Japan has been actively building up its strike group designed to conduct amphibious operations. Is Russia ready for the Japanese that once had lost all hope of returning "native Japanese territories," to take action?

Konstantin Sivkov, senior vice president of the Academy of Geopolitical Issues, answered this question for Pravda.ru.

"Of course, when we try to imagine a scenario of conflict with Japan, we should take into account the fact that it is not limited to amphibious operation in the Southern Kuril Islands," the expert believes. "Japanese revenge-seekers who are raising their head increasingly more must understand that in case of military adventurism on their part they will have to deal with Russia on the vast theater of operations, from Vladivostok to the Kuril chain, and possibly up to Kamchatka. They surpass Russia both at sea and in the air at this point. Although on our side we have strategic aircrafts unavailable in Japan. Thus, our missiles can be guaranteed to hit targets within a radius of 1500-2000 kilometers.

With regard to nuclear weapons, in a conventional conflict, without the use of weapons of mass destruction, we simply will not use it, and we do not hope that it can stop the aggressor.

Until recently there was a rather strong Russian unit in the conflict zone, including an artillery division, designed precisely to reflect a probable enemy assault. However, in 1990, our Kuril group significantly deteriorated in the general context of weakening of Russian defenses. In particular, a significant portion of the park was comprised of obsolete armored vehicles T-55. Or there is something else - while the Japanese are increasing their military preparedness, we are only just beginning to wonder out loud: "Should we send S-300 to the Kuriles? It says a lot.

In case of an attack of a potential enemy, our Kurile unit, including the southern islands, is guaranteed to hold out for a day or two. Maximum - three or four days. During this time we must ensure the delivery of reinforcement, otherwise the outcome of the likely conflict may not be very pleasant.

It is important that the transport infrastructure connecting the archipelago with the mainland leaves much to be desired. In recent years, observing the Japanese to increase their offensive force, we also expressed some interest in the defense of the Kuril Islands and started building new and reconstruct old airfields.

In the foreseeable future, the Japanese are unlikely to hold military adventure. However, this cannot be guaranteed further on, especially if we are at war with some third country and are not able to pay due attention to the Far East direction".

There has been a similar precedent in history. In 1855, using the fact that Russia was involved in the Crimean War, the Japanese pushed for a favorable agreement on the South Kuriles. Not wanting to conflict with Japan, Russia gave them four islands, which the Japanese are not willing to forget.

At one time the notorious Bismarck spoke of possible opponents: "I'm not interested in their intentions, I'm interested in their capabilities." The capabilities of the Japanese are getting larger.

Candu was after the fact in regards to these systems..... let me say the Mark I, I don't have a lot of info on, but for the II, III, I know from first hand experience are decent Reactors..... you need to be logical here and understand that this was the first of their kind..... now in regards to Pluto fuel, well that is just asinine so I am in full agreement with you there......

The Mark II and III also like the ancient and primitive Mark I's have absolutely zero capacity for passive safety and are totally unreliable undependable dangerous and ill-designed. The heavier containment on these newer ones just makes them into stronger nuclear grenades. They are all intrinsically unsafely designed.

In these GE junkpiles safety is either a daily, eternal, tedious chore or a lax, after the fact, afterthought. They are all far too dangerous for commercial applications and far too unsafe for employment as a utility. Moreover they are idiotic contraptions to put in an earthquake zone.

I figured that it was stored like that for that exact reason that you are now confirming ie handling and facilities.  But given the current situation maybe it aint the best place for 40 years of accumulated spent rods.  Easiest is understood but far from best.

Well aware this is a horrible and tragic accident of very low probability, but there has also been plenty of criticism surfacing from the nuclear industry that this particular design was flawed.  This compounded with the "rationale" of building in a quake/tsunami zone makes one wonder.

Thanks for the clarification on the rods these details help with the comprehension.

listen my first thoughts were why the hell build the damn thing there..... but just because these reactors have failed in this situation does not mean throw the whole lot of 'em into the fire.... NRC shut down Nuclear Advancement in this country..... up until a few years ago the concept of license extension did not exist.... the industry will learn from this, I can assure you.... it is the only industry of this type that freely shares Operating Experience between plants and companies... there will be a full review and I guarantee you I will be designing mods to address any discovered pitfalls.....

The Ongoing Events at the Fukushima Dai'ichi Nuclear Power Plant No. 1
15 March 2011
, by Michael Flagg
http://futurejacked.blogspot.com/2011/03/situation.html

Summary

This is my personal opinion of what is going on at the nuclear reactors at Fukushima Dai'ichi Power Plant Number 1. Reactor Units 1, 2, and 3 were all operating when the massive 9.0 earthquake popped off the coast from the power station on March 11th. The tsunami that hit shore roughly an hour after the quake absolutely devastated the infrastructure around the reactors, wiping out the backup power. The lack of backup power helped cause a cascading series of failures that has led to partial "meltdowns" of the fuel in reactor units 1, 2 and 3. The plant operators have vented radioactive steam to help ease the high pressure in the reactor pressure vessels. This steam has raised radiation rates in the area, but that is not to levels that are immediately dangerous. Unit 2 has suffered a breakdown in its containment that has led to the release of more radiation that has reached levels that could be dangerous in the local area. Unit 3 may have breached as well tonight. Radiation rates have risen in Tokyo and other areas downwind, but so far these levels of radiation are not high enough to be immediately dangerous to the public (that I know of, as of March 15th at 9:00 p.m. Central Time in the U.S.).
 
Nuclear Power Terms

A lot of unfamiliar words are being tossed around in the media, so here are some definitions that might help. I am putting in links to Wikipedia for those wanting more detail:

Reactor Core: This is basically a big metal lattice holding 12 foot tall fuel rods. A fuel rod is a stack of uranium oxide pellets, each pellet roughly the size of .22 round. These are kept in a stack inside a metal alloy called "zircaloy." The core for these types of nuclear reactors stays hot for several days, even after they have been shut down and need pumps operating constantly to keep the water flowing around to cool off the core. It is like your car's radiator, except in this case, even after you shut off the car, you need the radiator to work for awhile because the "engine" (the core) is extremely hot.

Click here for more details on a nuclear reactor core: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_reactor_core

Pressure Vessel: This is a very large steel container that holds the core. It is at least 20 cm (nearly 8 inches) thick of stainless steel. Possibly thicker, but I am not an expert on the specific reactor designs at Fukushima. This is built to hold up under enormous pressures and heat.

For an example of what they can handle, when the core at Three Mile Island Unit 2 partially melted down (about half the core melted and dropped to the bottom of the core), the steel pressure vessel did not break or melt. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Mile_Island_accident#Consequences_of_stuck_valve

Click here for more details on a pressure vessel: http://www.euronuclear.org/info/encyclopedia/r/reactor-pressure-vessel.htm

Containment or Containment Building: The core is in the pressure vessel. The containment is the final barrier to radioactive release. The pressure vessel sits inside a large, thigh concrete building designed to seal the pressure vessel and core from the outside world. This building is constructed to handle a big pressure rise or explosion and still keep all the nuclear materials inside the building. It has penetrations to allow for water to be pumped in to keep the core cooled down.

Click here for more details on a containment building (FYI, the reactor type at Fukushima are Boiling Water Reactors (BWR)): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Containment_building

Boiling Water Reactor (BWR): The type of reactor at Fukushima. In this kind of reactor you boil the water inside the pressure vessel and that turns to steam to drive turbines to make electricity. For you folks in Missouri, the Callaway plant is a different design - it is a pressurized water reactor (PWR): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressurized_water_reactor

Click here for more details on boiling water reactors: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiling_water_reactor

Boron or Boric Acid (as in pouring in seawater laced with boron or boric acid): Boron is a "neutron poison" - that means the boron absorbs neutrons and keeps them from splitting uranium atoms. This is used to keep deformed fuel or melted fuel from "going critical" or releasing lots of energy from the splitting of the atom. Think of it as a sponge, used to soak up neutrons and keep the situation from getting out of control.

Also, translating very technical terms from Japanese into English can cause some real communication problems. Please note that sometimes the way it is worded may be confusing.
 
What Happened

Please Note, this is my personal opinion and is based on what I can find that I regard as reputable. I could be wrong on some particulars, but details are hard to come by at the moment, so don't take this as gospel.


When the quake hit, units 1, 2 and 3 all survived the quake and shut down safely. When I say "unit" that just means that there are multiple reactors, all with their own containment buildings, at this site. For those of you in Southeast Missouri, a way to compare it is that the Sikeston Power Plant has one coal-fired unit and the AECI power plant at New Madrid has two coal-fired units at the plant.

Fukushima has 6 units. Units 4, 5, and 6 were already shut down for maintenance.

The reactors shut down. The electrical grid, which powers their pumps, went down, so they turned on their backup diesel generators. Remember, they need this power to keep water circulating over the hot core. They need their "radiator" working. The backup diesels operated fine for an hour. Then a 30 foot tall tsunami caused by the quake washed ashore. This was a taller tsunami than they had designed the plant to withstand. The water got over all the barriers and then wiped out the switch yard (where you would hook up to the grid or where you would hook up extra diesel generators). This also apparently wiped out the diesel fuel supply and the backup power went down.

There are batteries that then kicked in to run the pumps to keep the cooling system working.

They ran out of juice (these are big pumps and put a hard drain on the batteries).

For a variety of reasons, including this loss of all power systems the coolant systems began to fail.

They had a very, very, very hot "engine" and their radiator had stopped circulating properly.

Over the next few days, the water began to boil off, exposing the core to air Unit 1, then Unit 3, then Unit 2. Recall, the pressure vessel and containment is sealed off, so the steam that was boiling off began to create enormous pressure inside the reactor pressure vessel and containment. Think of it like a pressure cooker you might use to cook with, except the bleed off valve is stuck shut. The fuel rods were then exposed to air. Air does not conduct heat away very well and so the temperature of the fuel rods began to rise. Eventually they got hot enough to melt the zircaloy, which meant part of the core deformed and some/much has probably fallen to the bottom of the pressure vessel. This also put a lot of radioactive material into the air, which got entrained in the steam.

Okay, so now we have a very hot, very highly pressurized and very radioactive atmosphere inside the containment building.

Well, the plant operators began to vent some of the steam to the outside. This caused the radiation levels nearby to rise (we'll talk about rad levels in a minute).

While this is going on, the Japanese know they have to get water over the core. So they begin pumping seawater laced with boron into the pressure vessels. This eventually worked in Units 1 and 3, though radioactive material did continue to be vented. Also, seawater is corrosive, so who knows what damage it is causing - but it is the only way to stabilize things at the moment. Unit 2 had another problem with stuck valves and they couldn't vent steam at one point. It was so hot and so pressurized that they couldn't pump the water in. This caused pressure to build up so much that it ruptured the containment building and dropped material into a big pool of water below the pressure vessel. This is still contained in the building, but it is not good. Hydrogen began to build up as well. That was the source of some spectacular explosions over the course of a few days, but these explosions, while making scary TV, did not significantly damage the containment building.

Radiation levels got high enough that they evacuated all but 50 guys from the plant. The 50 people remaining are mostly in the shielded control room (I assume) but they are getting significant radiation dose. These are people who have lost their homes, possibly lost their families and haven't slept in days and they are hanging in there, trying to get a handle on things.

So why not just bring in new diesel generators and hook them up and get that cooling water flowing again? Well, the tsunami was so bad that it wiped out all the connections you'd need to quickly feed power into the plants when the switchyard was wiped out. I don't have details of that situation, but I know they are working to get power restored, but having real troubles on that front.

As of tonight, things are still bad, but not catastrophic with regards to the units 1, 2, and 3 (though apparently there was a fire at unit 3 again today and word is that containment may have been breached here as well).

By "not catastrophic" I mean that three reactors are still hot (but cooling down) and some radioactive material has been spewed out and nearly 200,000 people have had to evacuate the area, but there has been no deadly release of radioactive material outside the plant to where locals would be immediately made sick or hurt.

The above is a very brief synopsis of a very big problem and I've skipped a few parts that are highly technical. Check out the wikipedia link below for more details.

Now, we move on to Unit 4. Unit 4 was shut down and the fuel had even been moved over to what is called the spent fuel pool before the quake hit. So this unit should have been fine, right? Well, the spent fuel pool is basically just a big swimming pool where fuel rods are stored after being used. They cool down over the course of a few years and are much cooler than rods that are in a core that has just been shut down. You need to circulate the water a bit, but this is a much easier task than in the pressure vessel. Well, apparently the pumps or the diesels failed here too (this is very unclear to me what actually happened. I can't believe they would just forget about the spent fuel pools. This will be a big topic studied after this mess is all over and done with) and the fuel rods stored here, while not as hot as ones in the cores that were just shut down, were still hot and the water began to boil off.

Well, just like in the cores, once these fuel rods lost the water around them, they got very hot, which made the water evaporate further, which made them hotter, and so on and so on. Hydrogen began to build up in the building that holds the spent fuel and we had a large hydrogen explosion today. This ripped a huge hole in the wall of the spent fuel pond (which is part of the reactor building) and released a cloud of radioactive material. This caused rad levels to spike again and forced the evacuation of more workers. It now sounds like they are going to bring in helicopters to pour water into the spent fuel pool building. Not clear how they are going to accomplish this.

In short, things are still bad. Every time I think they have a handle on the situation, there is another explosion or we learn about something like this problem with the spent fuel pool in Unit 4. The U.S. is sending significant help, as are the South Koreans.
 
Radiation Levels and Health

I'll spare you the lecture on radiation safety. Just keep this in mind - if you hear about radiation levels measured in "milli-sieverts" that is bad. If you hear about radiation levels measured in "microsieverts" this is not nearly as bad and is a radiation level you can probably work in or evacuate through. When your teachers told you that prefixes matter, they weren't kidding.

Earlier tonight Minister Edano from Japan misspoke and said that radiation levels were in the 600 - 800 milli-sievert/hr range (a very large dose to take) when he meant to say 600-800 micro-sieverts (not good, but a lot, lot less radiation to deal with).

Also, the rate is important. Most every radiation level reported will be in dose per hour.

If things become catastrophic and a big release of material happens, Japan will be significantly affected, but the U.S. will not. Don't believe the rumors and hype that might follow such an event. We are far enough away that the worst radiation will be diluted.

For details on what levels of dose begin to cause health problems, click here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation_poisoning#Exposure_levels

Conclusion

The Japanese are working hard to keep these reactors from spewing out large amounts of radiation that would affect public health. So far they have been successful. There have been releases, but they have not been of sufficient dose to cause immediate health problems. The spent fuel pool problem is my biggest worry right now. Keep an eye on things.

Words to watch for that indicate things are getting worse:

• the spent fuel has dried out and has caught fire (unlikely, but this is my big worry right now - it would lead to a big release of radioactive material)

• massive breach in containment for unit 1, 2 or 3

• dose readings in the high milli-sievert/hour range

Let me know what you have questions about and I can update this as we go along.

Bullshit. Radioactive sources stored above ground? In the roofs of buildings? Loose?

We work with Cesium 137, a few micrograms at a time. We need to store the sources in lead and steel containers, with a rotating window to get access to the emissions.

Between uses, this has to be stored in an underground steel bunker. All movement must be recorded. The bunkers must be surveyed monthly, and readings taken before and after removal of the C 137.

The reason for the storage in underground bunkers, is so that potential damage to the source container is minimized, even in fire, flood or explosions.

Failure to do any of the above, and a dozen other things, would result in the loss of our license, regardless of whether we work in Nigeria, the US or Japan or dozens of other countries.

I refuse to believe that larger, more powerful sources, would be allowed to be handled in such a cavalier manner.

If they do have them in an upper level I don’t think they just laid them out on the floor.

I hope you’re right about them being in underground bunkers Les. I really don’t know what to believe in all of this. Every new story contradicts the previous story.

Japan catastrophe sends shock waves


By Victor Kotsev



As the situation at the Fukushima nuclear plant continues to deteriorate, increasing panic has gripped Japan and the world. By early Thursday, last-ditch attempts to prevent a full-blown disaster appeared desperate, and fears about the status of spent fuel at the plant added to speculation that the authorities were withholding vital information about the scope of the catastrophe.

The signs of distress to the plant struck by a magnitude 9 earthquake last Friday are everywhere; foreigners are leaving the island nation en masse. In North America, which is down wind from Japan, frantic buying led to a shortage of potassium iodide and Geiger counters. A number of countries, including Germany and China, halted operations at older reactors and/or construction plans for new nuclear power plants, pending an exhaustive review, and it now appears that a major debate on the future of nuclear energy will follow.

The wider geostrategic consequences of the crisis are only beginning to emerge, and speculation ranges from a new economic recession to repercussions in the Persian Gulf and global energy markets.

On Wednesday, authorities admitted that the inner container vessel of a second reactor - number 3, running on a mix of plutonium and uranium fuels - may have ruptured, and extraordinarily high levels of radiation at the plant halted for a brief period of time all efforts to relieve the troubled reactors. Reports indicate that the army is becoming increasingly involved in dousing the fires; on Thursday, Japanese military helicopters were sent to dump sea water on the plant, at great personal risk for the pilots. without any clear results. [1]

The Japanese government turned to the United States with an appeal for help even as American military personnel were ordered to stay clear of the plant. Nuclear operators stationed at Fukushima reportedly sent their families farewell messages, adding to the sense of a deja-vu with the Chernobyl catastrophe (where the army was similarly forced to intervene, helicopters flew through highly radioactive clouds in brave attempts to contain the meltdown, and firefighters and nuclear engineers sacrificed their lives).

Moreover, accusations surfaced that the Japanese authorities were withholding important information about the meltdown. According to many experts, the 30-kilometer safety perimeter set up around Fukushima is grossly inadequate.

American officials characterized the radiation levels as "extremely high',' and warned all American citizens to stay at least 80 kilometers away from the damaged plant. The New York Times writes, "American officials concluded that the Japanese warnings were insufficient, and that, deliberately or not, they had understated the potential threat of what is taking place inside the nuclear facility."

Though, according to the official narrative, only "small amounts" of radioactive material have reached Tokyo, a sense of gloom hangs over the capital, 240 kilometers from Fukushima. Sources on the ground report a subtle shift in government messages: while up to now the authorities have claimed there was no danger to people there, more recently they started saying that there was no "immediate" danger. In a culture known for very carefully measured statements, this speaks volumes.

Some of the panic, at least internationally, is clearly excessive. A nuclear fallout map that surfaced this week and caused distress by predicting high levels of pollution in North America appears to be a hoax, since most of the radiation would dissipate within a few days and over a few hundred kilometers of distance. [2]

Even so, the map captured more or less accurately the wind patterns that would deliver at least some radioactive dust to the United States and Canada. [3] This prediction is bolstered by anecdotal evidence and by what appears to be a declassified map of nuclear fallout from a "small" Chinese nuclear test in 1966. [4]

More precise predictions of the fallout patterns are hard to come by; early on Thursday, The New York Times quoted a United Nations report that confirmed the above projections. "The agency declined to release its Japanese forecast," the American newspaper wrote, adding that it obtained it "from other sources".

Meanwhile, grave additional concerns arose as some of the attention shifted from the reactors themselves - where the situation is bad enough as it is - to spent nuclear fuel stored at the plant. On Wednesday, the chairman of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Gregory Jaczko, pointed to reactor number 4, where spent fuel had ignited and caused explosions alongside major radiation pollution. According to most experts, the stored fuel can be almost as dangerous as the active rods themselves.

To top off these concerns, there is a lot of speculation about the status of spent nuclear fuel at the rest of the afflicted reactors. For example, information about storage pools at reactors 1 through 3 is pointedly missing from reports provided by the International Atomic Energy Agency. [5] In the analysis of Kirk James Murphy, "Fukushima Daiichi plant may contain over 600,000 spent fuel rods," accumulated over several decades, whose ignition threatens to lead to "Chernobyl on steroids". [6]

While it is not immediately clear that Kirk James Murphy is a definitive authority on the issue, numerous other reports also suggest that there were spent fuel tanks on top of all the reactors at Fukushima; it is hard to imagine that the blasts that damaged severely the structures of the first three reactors spared these tanks. Satellite images of the plant add weight to these suspicions and to speculation that tons of radioactive fuel rods might have been sent up in the air by the explosions. [7]

The presence of plutonium, both in spent fuel and in active fuel at reactor number 3, is also a major source of worry. More information on the health effects of plutonium can be found here.

Aside from pressing concerns for human safety, the shock waves of the nuclear meltdown in Japan will be felt on many other levels; these repercussions are only beginning to emerge. Amid a massive sell-off of stocks, many have speculated that the global economic recession might return in force. [8] Russian analysts have suggested that if Tokyo is spared major radiation damage, such a scenario would be averted, but currently both the premise and the result are open to question.

The global nuclear industry faces an uncertain future, especially in light of revelations that Japan ignored several warnings that its plants would not withstand a major earthquake. [9] "In the short term," Leon Gettler wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald, "we can expect what's happening in Japan to completely rewrite the debate on nuclear power as the solution for climate change."

Some observers are predicting that in the long run, the catastrophe could lead to an increasing dependence on natural gas, which in turn would be a positive development both for the environment and for the economy of the United States. According to Steve LeVine writing for Foreign Policy, "The implications are serious for geopolitics - countries endowed with much natural gas, such as Qatar, Australia and the United States, will see shifts in their relative influence. Another big shift will be in climate presumptions - gas emits just one-third of the CO2 [carbon dioxide] as coal, and half that of oil."

If this analysis is correct - LeVine cautions that "other analysts predict an interregnum while safety concerns are addressed, and then a revived nuclear buildout" - Russia (another major natural gas exporter) would undoubtedly benefit as well. In fact, Russia might benefit even more than the United States. It is even possible to foresee collusion in the long run between Russia and Japan. The two countries are still technically at war over the Kuril Islands, but Japan's pressing need for energy, exacerbated by the loss of the nuclear reactors and instability in the Persian Gulf, might force it closer to its former enemy. [10] In turn, Russia's need for new technologies would almost certainly make it prone to compromise.

Such speculation is still far-fetched, but it is not altogether ungrounded. (Yet more bizarre are statements by Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a Russian politician with the reputation of a loose cannon, who on Sunday called on the Japanese to "leave the dangerous islands" and to settle in unpopulated Russian territories).

American think-tank Stratfor suggests that in the wake of the disaster Japan might reconsider its foreign policy course:
Japan's nuclear power sector seemed invulnerable, which no other part of its energy infrastructure was. For Japan, a country that went to war with the United States over energy in 1941 and was devastated as a result, this was no small thing ... The question is how the political system will respond. In dealing with the Persian Gulf, will Japan continue to follow the American lead or will it decide to take a greater degree of control and follow its own path? The likelihood is that a shaken self-confidence will make Japan more cautious and even more vulnerable.
Beyond Japan's reaction, the nuclear meltdown will almost certainly have wider consequences for the Persian Gulf crisis, and these are far from straightforward, but will probably surface soon.

On the one hand, the disaster will likely make the international community even less accepting of Iran's nuclear program. On the other hand, however, tolerance toward sabotage of Iran's nuclear program, which both Israel and the United States have allegedly carried out with striking success, might plunge even lower. It might be that the nuclear crisis will put paid to any plan to strike Iranian nuclear installations.

Overall, at this stage it is difficult to predict the extent of damage - much less the precise geostrategic consequences - of Japan's unfolding nuclear catastrophe. It appears certain, however, that the world will not be the same in its wake.

Nuclear Watchdog IAEA Confirms Partial Meltdown of Reactors 1 to 3


By NewsCore

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article27695.htm

March 16, 2011 "Pocno Record" - -"TOKYO -- The UN's nuclear watchdog the IAEA warned Japan's nuclear crisis was "very serious" Wednesday as Tokyo resorted to increasingly desperate measures to cool overheated reactors and fuel pools at the stricken Fukushima plant.

International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) head Yukiya Amano confirmed reactors No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3. had partially melted down. He added that Japanese authorities had also reported concerns about the spent nuclear fuel pools of reactors No. 3 and No. 4.

The deep tanks contain used fuel rods which are extremely radioactive and normally kept immersed in cooling water. Unlike the fuel rods that are used in the reactor vessel, the spent rods are not surrounded by a steel-and-concrete containment vessel. If water in the pools evaporated, the spent rods would be exposed to the air and radioactive material would be released into the atmosphere.

Amano also announced he would travel to Japan as early as Thursday to observe the situation and report back first hand.

Earlier Wednesday, following the cancellation of a helicopter mission to pour water on No. 3 reactor due to high radiation levels, a water cannon normally used by riot police arrived at the plant to pump water into the spent fuel pool of No. 4 reactor.

The US military said it had delivered high-pressure water pumps to Japan to help with the operation at Fukushima.

"High-pressure water pumps were offloaded from USNS Safeguard in Yokosuka last night and delivered to Yokota Air Force Base for further transfer to the government of Japan for employment at the Fukushima power plant," the US Pacific Fleet said in a statement.

The US military also increased its own operational exclusion zone around the Fukushima plant to 50 miles. The Pentagon also confirmed some flight crews were issued with potassium iodide tablets to combat the possible effects of radiation.

Earlier US Energy Secretary Steven Chu told a House of Representatives hearing that the crisis appeared "to be more serious than Three Mile Island," referring to the 1979 accident in Pennsylvania.

French Industry Minister Eric Besson said the situation at the plant appeared to be getting out of control. "Let's not beat about the bush. They have visibly lost the essential control [of the situation]. That is our analysis, in any case, it's not what they are saying," Besson told French news channel BFM.

France, Europe's leader in nuclear power, earlier said its nationals should leave Tokyo, which is 155 miles (250km) south of the plant.

Besson's comments were echoed by the European Union's energy commissioner, Guenther Oettinger, who told a European Parliament committee the site was "effectively out of control."

"In the coming hours there could be further catastrophic events which could pose a threat to the lives of people on the island," he said.

The crisis has sparked international concerns over the safety of nuclear power, and French president Nicolas Sarkozy said he would call a special meeting of G-20 energy and economy ministers to discuss energy strategy. France holds the G-20 presidency.

Russia said it would begin evacuating dependents of its diplomatic and commercial personnel from Tokyo on Friday.

The Chinese government ordered safety inspections of all nuclear facilities in the wake of Japan's atomic crisis, and said it was freezing approval of all new plants. China is one of the fastest-growing consumers of nuclear power as it seeks to meet energy demands of its booming economy.

Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano, the government's spokesman, said radiation levels posed no immediate health threat outside a 12-mile (20-kilometer) exclusion zone that has already been evacuated.

Workers returned to the plant after an evacuation order due to a spike in radiation, although a spokesman for the embattled operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), told Fox News the plant was never totally abandoned and workers outside were told to take cover indoors.

Edano later said that the alert was designated as a false alarm due to a misreporting of the radiation levels at the plant's gate. He said that a decimal point was placed incorrectly, giving a reading of 100 millisieverts instead of 10 millisieverts.

A single dose of 1,000 millisieverts -- or one sievert -- causes temporary radiation sickness such as nausea and vomiting.

Engineers have been battling a nuclear emergency at the 40-year-old plant since a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami -- which left more than 3,700 dead and thousands more unaccounted for across Japan -- knocked out cooling systems last Friday and fuel rods began overheating.

There have been four explosions and two fires at four of the plant's six reactors, releasing radioactive material into the atmosphere.

Red Alert in Japan: An Unfolding Nuclear Catastrophe


by Stephen Lendman

(http://uruknet.com/pic.php?f=16japan6176436734_20.jpg)


March 16, 2011

http://uruknet.com/?p=m75910&hd=&size=1&l=e

Since March 12, a potentially unprecedented catastrophe has been unfolding in Japan, despite official denials and corroborating media reports - managed, not real news. Believe none of them. Nonetheless, on March 15, Reuters suggested what's ongoing, headlining: "Japan braces for potential radiation catastrophe," saying:

"Japan faced potential catastrophe on Tuesday" after a fourth Fukushima reactor explosion, fire, and high-level radiation release, posing grave human health risks to an expanding area, including Toyko's 20 million population 170 miles south.

France's Nuclear Safety Authority rated the disaster a six on the international seven-point nuclear accident scale. Clearly, it's the worst ever. Europe's energy commissioner, Guenther Oettinger called it an "apocalypse," telling the European Parliament that Toyko lost control of events.

Independent experts agree. It's an unprecedented disaster spreading globally. All six Fukushima reactors are crippled, four of them spewing unknown amounts of radiation.

On March 15, city officials said levels were 20 times above normal, later stating they'd dropped, downplaying the risk. Government authorities also claimed Fukushima levels were falling. For residents throughout the country, believing them is hazardous to their health, given the gravity of the situation, likely deteriorating, not improving.

In Maebashi, 60 miles north of Tokyo and Chiba prefecture further south, Kyodo News reported radiation levels 10 times normal, perhaps downplaying much higher ones. Even Prime Minister Naoto Kan was alarmed, saying "(t)he possibility of further radioactive leakage is heightening," meaning very likely it reached extremely hazardous levels. Earlier official reports downplayed the danger.

According to Hokkaido University Professor Koji Yamazaki, "Radioactive material will reach Tokyo but it is not harmful to human bodies because it will be dissipated by the time it gets" there.

False! Any amount of radiation is harmful. Moreover, it's cumulative, causing cancer if one human gene is affected. Depending on the type and amount, it damages chromosomes and DNA. In her landmark book, "Nuclear Madness," Helen Caldicott said:

"Lower doses of radiation can cause abnormalities of the immune system and can also cause leukemia five to ten years after exposure; (other) cancer(s), twelve to sixty years later; and genetic diseases and congenital anomalies in future generations."

Moreover, "nuclear radiation is forever," says Caldicott. It doesn't dissipate or disappear. Downplaying its danger is hypocritical and outrageous. For a scientist like Yamazaki, it's scandalous.

In 1953, Nobel laureate George Wald told students (including this writer) that "no amount of radiation is safe," explaining that "Every dose is an overdose."

Radiation is unforgiving. Exposure to elevated levels for short periods is harmful. If longer, cancer and other potentially fatal illnesses may develop. It's why using nuclear reactors to generate power is irresponsible, in fact, crazy.

On March 15, New York Times writers Hiroko Tabuchi, David Sanger and Keith Bradsher headlined, "Fire and Damage at Japanese Plant Raise Risk of Nuclear Disaster," saying:

Fukushima's operator Toyko Electric Power (TEPCO), a notorious industry scofflaw, "expressed extreme concern that (they) were close to losing control over the fuel melting that has been ongoing in three (Daiichi) reactors...." After Unit 2 exploded, "pressure had dropped in the 'suppression pool" - a section at the bottom of the reactor that converts steam to water and is part of the critical function of keeping the nuclear fuel protected."

Afterward, radiation levels soared. According to Hiroaki Koide, senior reactor engineering specialist at Kyoto University's Research Reactor Institute:

"We are on the brink. We are now facing the worst-case scenario. We can assume that the containment vessel at Reactor No. 2 is already breached. If there is heavy melting inside the reactor, large amounts of radiation will most definitely be released."

Moreover, a plant official said breaching would make it hard to impossible to maintain emergency seawater cooling for an extended period, and if workers are evacuated, "nuclear fuel in all three reactors (will likely) melt down," causing "wholesale releases of radioactive material...."

Further, already over 200 magnitude five or greater aftershocks have occurred, and authorities warned of a 70% chance of a magnitude seven or greater one in days, perhaps making a bad situation much worse. In addition, chief cabinet secretary Yukido Edano said previous radioactivity levels were misreported in microsieverts instead of millisieverts - 1,000 times stronger. Earlier he said the situation isn't similar to Chernobyl. In fact, potentially it's far graver, unprecedented.

Nuclear experts also explained that even without a full meltdown (perhaps ongoing), today's emergency will last a year or longer because of problems cooling the affected cores. As a result, long-term evacuations will be necessary. Already, nearly 500,000 people are affected, a total likely to grow, besides vast destruction, spreading contamination, growing threat to human health, and tens of thousands still missing, by now presumed dead, though not reported.

"Red Alert: Radiation Rising and Heading South in Japan"

On March 15, Stratfor Global Intelligence headlined that danger, saying:

After more explosions and risk of one or more full meltdowns (perhaps ongoing though unreported), "(t)he nuclear reactor situation in Japan had deteriorated significantly." Even Japan's Nuclear Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) said Fukushima's No. 2 reactor radiation level rose 163-fold in three hours. At No. 3, it was 400-fold.

Muted Japanese media report rising radiation levels south and southwest, already reaching Tokyo and numerous prefectures. "The government says radiation levels have reached levels hazardous to human health," omitting that any level causes harm.

Reports "suggest a dramatic worsening as well as a wider spread than at any time since the emergency began." All Japan and the Pacific rim are threatened. "The situation at the (affected) facility is uncertain, but clearly deteriorating." How gravely, the fullness of time will determine.

A Final Comment

On March 12, nuclear expert Mark Grossman headlined, "Hydrogen, Zirconium, Flashbulbs - and Nuclear Craziness," saying:

Coolant loss causes hydrogen gas eruptions "because of a highly volatile substance called zirconium," chosen "in the 1940's and 50's" to build nuclear plants, "as the material (for) rods into which radioactive fuel would be loaded."

Each plant has "30,000 to 40,000 rods - composed of twenty tones of zirconium." It alone works well, allowing "neutrons from the fuel pellets in the rods to pass freely between the rods and thus a nuclear chain reaction to be sustained."

But not without "a huge problem...." Zirconium "is highly volatile and when hot will explode spontaneously upon contact with air, water or steam." With tons used in nuclear plants, in "a compound called 'zircaloy,' it "clads tens of thousands of fuel rods."

Any interruption of coolant builds quickly. However, because of zirconium's explosive power, the equivalent of nitroglycerine, it catches fire and explodes "at a temperature of 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, well below the 5,000 degree temperature of a meltdown."

Before it happens, it can cause hydrogen explosions "by drawing oxygen from water and steam letting it off," what happened at Fukushima. They, in turn, create more heat, "bringing the zirconium itself closer and closer to its explosive level," what may, in fact, have happened, perhaps bad enough to cause a full meltdown.

Using tons of explosive material like zirconium is "absolutely crazy." Doing it makes every nuclear plant a ticking time bomb, vulnerable to explode, spewing lethal poisons into the atmosphere.

Reports are inacurate and I suspect faul play. On the pictures you can clearly see that Unit3 (of 6) at the Daiichi Fukushima 1 Plant has been severely blown out and damaged:

PICTURES NEW: http://tinyurl.com/4wxngp8

Each reactor building pool holds 3,450 fuel rod assemblies and the common pool holds 6,291 fuel rod assemblies. Each assembly holds sixty-three fuel rods.

In short, the Fukushima Daiichi plant contains OVER 600,000 SPENT FUEL RODS :o – a massive amount of radiation that will soon be released into the atmosphere.

· Brassica vegetables and high beta carotene vegetables

· Beans and lentils

· Potassium, calcium and mineral rich foods

· High nucleotide content foods to assist in cellular repair including spirulina, chlorella, algae, yeast, sardines, liver, anchovies and mackerel

· Cod liver oil and olive oil

  You know the Japanese may be in good shape when it comes to iodine.  The average American gets 4/365's of what a Japanese does.  That's right--the average American gets 4 days worth of the average daily requirement of iodine per year.  The Japanese eat fish and seaweed daily which are rich in iodine.

Title: Danger of Losing Control of the Reactor Is Greater with MOX Fuel
Post by: Letsbereal on March 17, 2011, 09:07:47 am
#Danger of Losing Control of the Reactor Is Greater with MOX

Conventional LWRs are designed to decrease the reactivity when the temperature rises.

- But when using Pu-239 as fuel, heating of the core from an increase in reaction rate tends to increase the reaction rate still further.

This is called the positive temperature coefficient of reactivity, meaning there is a danger of losing control of the reactor by accelerated chain reaction of fissioning.

IMPORTANT PIECE:  2006 study perfomed by the National Research Council of the National Academies

Why Fukushima’s “spent” fuel rods will continue to catch fire
15 March 2011

http://my.firedoglake.com/kirkmurphy/2011/03/15/why-fukushimas-spent-fuel-rods-will-continue-to-catch-fire/

Excerpt:

Why did the spent fuel rod pool at reactor 4 catch fire again today?  

Yesterday the Institute for Energy and Enviromental Research‘s  Arjun Makhijani wrote a very detailed report that answers this question.  

In his report he quoted extensively from the 2006 study perfomed by the National Research Council of the National Academies.  

Their report tells us:



The ability to remove decay heat from the spent fuel also would be reduced as the water level drops, especially when it drops below the tops of the fuel assemblies.

Update to Information Sheet Regarding the Tohoku Earthquake

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 1 reactor: At 6:55AM on March 16, The water level inside the reactor core was measured at 1.8 meters below the top of the fuel rods.

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 2 reactor: At 6:55AM on March 16, The water level inside the reactor core was measured at 1.4 meters below the top of the fuel rods.

Fukushima Daiichi Unit 3 reactor: At 9:55AM on March 16, The water level inside the reactor core was measured at 1.9 meters below the top of the fuel rods.



This would cause temperatures in the fuel assemblies to rise, accelerating the oxidation of the zirconium alloy (zircaloy) cladding that encases the uranium oxide pellets.

This oxidation reaction can occur in the presence of both air and steam and is strongly exothermic—that is, the reaction releases large quantities of heat, which can further raise cladding temperatures.

The steam reaction also generates large quantities of hydrogen….

These oxidation reactions [with a loss of coolant] can become locally self-sustaining … at high temperatures (i.e., about a factor of 10 higher than the boiling point of water) if a supply of oxygen and/or steam is available to sustain the reactions….

The result could be a runaway oxidation reaction — referred to in this report as a zirconium cladding fire — that proceeds as a burn front (e.g., as seen in a forest fire or a fireworks sparkler) along the axis of the fuel rod toward the source of oxidant (i.e., air or steam)….

As fuel rod temperatures increase, the gas pressure inside the fuel rod increases and eventually can cause the cladding to balloon out and rupture.

At higher temperatures (around 1800°C [approximately 3300°F]), zirconium cladding reacts with the uranium oxide fuel to form a complex molten phase containing zirconium-uranium oxide.

Beginning with the cladding rupture, these events would result in the release of radioactive fission gases and some of the fuel’s radioactive material in the form of aerosols into the building that houses the spent fuel pool and possibly into the environment.

If the heat from one burning assembly is not dissipated, the fire could spread to other spent fuel assemblies in the pool, producing a propagating zirconium cladding fire.

The high-temperature reaction of zirconium and steam has been described quantitatively since at least the early 1960s….”



Translation for laypeople:  Without enough water to cover the, the fuel rods will keep on igniting, just like trick birthday candles keep re-igniting after we blow them out.  

Just like trick birthday candles, the only way to put out the fuel rods is to put them under water.  

That’s why even after Monday’s reactor 4 spent fuel rod fire was quenched, the spent fuel rod pool caught fire again this afternoon.

Unlike trick birthday candles, the spent fuel rods burn hot (3300 degrees F) enough so that the radioactive material in the rods is aerosolized: carried into the atmosphere in clouds of hot smoke.  

And unlike our trick birthday candles, the spent fuel rods in reactor building 4 are four stories off the ground – just like the other five reactor spent fuel pools at Fukushima.  

And unlike our trick birthday candles, right now the radioactivity around the spent fuel rods is so high that no one can approach them to put out the fire.

Highest Radiation Levels

At 4:10PM on March 16, a radiation level of 1530 micro sievert per hour was recorded at the main gate of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

For comparison, a human receives 2400 micro sievert per year from natural radiation in the form of sunlight, radon, and other sources. One chest CT scan generates 6900 micro sievert per scan.


ABOUT RADIATION LEVELS

The ICRP sets a standard for occupational exposure to radiation at 100 mSv over 5 years, with a maximum of 50 mSv in any one year.

Pentagon preparing for a nuclear worst-case scenario at Fukushima

 WASHINGTON — If the deteriorating situation at a Japanese nuclear plant veers toward a worst-case meltdown scenario, people across the country — including 86,000 American servicemembers, civilian employees and their dependents — could face an unprecedented atomic disaster.

The Pentagon on Wednesday began laying out precautions to keep troops safe, announcing a 50-mile no-go zone around the unstable Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex that is wider than the official Japanese evacuation zone. The U.S. Embassy in Japan told American citizens within 50 miles of the plant to evacuate if possible or stay indoors.

Meanwhile, military doctors began advising U.S. air crews flying rescue missions within 80 miles of the stricken complex to take potassium iodide tablets to combat harmful radiation effects. Already, troops on some bases in Japan and aboard ships offshore — including two air crew members on the USS Ronald Reagan who had to take iodide tablets Tuesday — have been exposed to radiation from the nuclear plants, although at levels not believed high enough to pose a serious risk.

Despite the precautions, there is no single Pentagon policy that determines how much radiation troops should be allowed to endure before they must be evacuated. Instead, the judgment is left to individual commanders. Several Pacific commanders contacted by Stars and Stripes for clarification referred questions back to the Pentagon.

In Washington, a spokesman for the assistant secretary of defense for health affairs referred questions about permissible radiation exposure levels to Pentagon media staff.

“We train and equip all of our people to operate in all kinds of environments," Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said. “We know how to measure, we know how to test, we know how to take precautions.”

Dr. Fred Mettler, a leading expert on the effects of radiation and a radiologist at the New Mexico Veterans Health System, oversaw a 1999 Institute of Medicine study that led to the recommendation against a single stringent Pentagon policy governing battlefield radiation exposure.

“Commanders should always seek to minimize the dose in the context of the requirements of the mission,” Mettler said in an interview. “Think of it like getting shot. Do you have a guide to how many bullets a soldier should be allowed to take?”

AdvertisementThe 1999 report, however, doesn’t address the question of what the military should do when entire bases are downwind from an unstable reactor, as is the case in Japan.

Some nuclear experts are now saying the Fukushima crisis could rival the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the former Soviet Union.

Nuclear scientists use the term “core-on-the-floor” to describe radioactive fuel burning through protective containment layers, hitting water and bursting into the atmosphere in a huge steam explosion, spreading clouds of radioactive gas and dust.

It’s never happened before, but experts fear it may soon become reality in one or more reactors at the Fukushima nuclear complex, which was gravely damaged in last Friday’s 9.0-magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami.

“We are right now closer to core-on-the-floor than at any time in the history of nuclear reactors,” said Kenneth Bergeron, a former Sandia National Laboratory researcher who spent his career simulating such meltdowns, including in reactors of the type at the Fukushima plant.

Even in such a scenario, only people very near the plant — and well inside the 12-mile exclusion zone the Japanese government has set up — would be in danger of burns and other acute radiation effects, experts say.

But on U.S. bases hundreds of miles away, people still would need to take quick steps to limit exposure or else risk long-term cancer effects.

In the most devastating nuclear accident to date, at Chernobyl, there was no meltdown. Instead, the reactor exploded and burned for days, hurling radioactive dust laced with cesium, strontium, and radioactive iodine high into the air, which later menaced broad swaths of Europe as the materials fell back to Earth.

If one or more of the Fukushima reactor cores melt out of their containment vessels, the release could be smaller and less violent. But whether the effects would be less risky than Chernobyl, which officials estimate killed 50 people initially and will eventually lead to the cancer deaths of thousands, is an open question.

Fukushima “could even be more dangerous, depending on wind and weather,” said Bergeron, who is now a nuclear safety consultant and writer.

Large concentrations of radioactive material were found hundreds of miles away from Chernobyl’s ground zero, said Mettler, who, as the U.S. representative on radiation danger to the United Nations, was deeply involved with Chernobyl.

“What tends to go out are the things that are volatile, or gases,” he said. “Cesium 137 can easily go hundreds of miles.”

That means they could hit U.S. bases after a meltdown. Defense Department policies require commanders to have emergency procedures for distributing potassium iodide and Prussian blue, medications that block the uptake of radioactive iodine and cesium, respectively.

Prussian blue is stocked regionally at Trippler Army Medical Center in Hawaii. The Pentagon said Wednesday it has enough iodide on hand in Japan.

Even in its current state, Fukushima has released radiation measurable on U.S. bases. A measurement of 20 millirems of radiation exposure over 12 hours was made at Naval Base Yokosuka, not Naval Air Base Atsugi, although officials at the time recommended personnel at both locations take precautions.

Though health officials agree that’s not a harmful level in itself, it could become serious if it becomes a pattern. A 1998 U.S. Army guideline on low-level radiation set 50 cumulative millirems as a threshold at which exposed individuals should begin being monitored for harm.

From 50 to 500 millirems, one extra cancer death will occur in a population of 4,000 people, according to the Army’s data. The next threshold is 500 millirems, at which an extra cancer death will in a group of 400 people.

Though they won’t talk about specific disaster plans, base officials in Japan are trying to ease concerns among their military communities.

In Misawa, Air Force officials have repeatedly told residents they are in no danger of radiation from the failing nuclear reactors in Fukushima, which is about 240 miles south of the base.

“I am not moving my family out or secretly taking iodine pills,” Col. Michael Rothstein, the base commander, told Stars and Stripes Wednesday. “There is no threat here.”

Rothstein took that message on the radio with a live address Tuesday night as radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant spread to U.S. military bases in central Japan.

WOW.....
No info being given to the Japanese People at all since the second explosion?

They have the right to know exactly what the truth is.... and so do we!

Japan's nuclear plant stable but critical

They have a power line which they hope to hook up tomorrow to restart the pumps and increase the water to the reactors and pools. I hope it works :-\

http://rt.com/news/fukushima-nuclear-crisis-critical/ (http://rt.com/news/fukushima-nuclear-crisis-critical/)

Radiation levels remain unchanged at Japan’s earthquake-stricken Fukushima-1 nuclear plant even after helicopters dropped tons of water onto the hardest-hit reactor. The focus of the crisis is shifting to the overheated pools storing spent fuel rods.

The firefighting vehicles of Japan’s Self Defense Forces (SDF) have started watering the overheated damaged Unit 3 reactor using high-pressure water-cannons.

This comes after two SDF helicopters dumped seawater onto reactor 3 on Thursday morning in an attempt to cool down its overheating fuel pool, delivering 7.5 tons of water in four raids. No less than a hundred raids were required to produce the required effect, but due to the high radiation level of 87.7 millisievert per hour at an altitude of 300 feet the operation had to be aborted.

The radiation level remained unchanged and showed 3 millisievert per hour around the plant’s roof, while safe exposure levels do not exceed 1 millisievert per year.

The helicopters have resumed spraying water over reactor 3 later in the day. The operation has been on and off due to high radiation levels. Japan’s police force has also prepared to spray water with a water cannon truck through cracks in the walls and roofs. The first priority is pouring water into the pools storing spent fuel rods at reactors 3 and 4, according to Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency. The pools are located outside the steel containment vessels for enclosing toxic radioactive substances.

The US military plans to dispatch a Global Hawk unmanned high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft on Thursday to take images of the inside of reactor 4’s premises, as reported by Japan’s Kyodo news agency.

Tokyo Electric Power Company, the operator of Fukushima-1 nuclear plant, declared it was close to finishing a new power line to the plant on Thursday. The new power line would recover electric-powered pumps that send water to the reactor cores and pools, allowing the company to control the rising temperatures and pressure that have led to at least partial meltdowns in three reactors.

Apparent hydrogen blasts at reactors 1, 3 and 4 have destroyed the buildings housing the reactors. The containment vessel of reactor 2 has been damaged in its pressure-suppression chamber at the bottom.

The cores of reactors 1, 2 and 3 are believed to have melted as they lost cooling functions in an ensuing tsunami, according to Kyodo news agency.

The temperature at initially intact reactors 5 and 6 has risen to 60 degrees Celsius as opposed to the norm of 25 degrees. The water level in the fuel pool of reactor 5 has dropped, posing the risk of overheating, the Nuclear Safety Agency says.

Over 70 per cent of the nuclear fuel rods have been damaged at reactor 1 and over 30 per cent at  reactor 2, Tokyo Electric Power Company stated on Wednesday.

The government has set the evacuation zone covering areas within a 20km radius of the plant, and urged people within 20-30km to stay indoors. Over 140,000 people have been evacuated from the area.
