Thread: Thousands evacuate as Fukishima nuclear emergency is declared

    It was the VERY building they vented to prevent an explosion in, that exploded...so don't worry...they have everything under control and are telling all....:D Exclusion zone just moved from 10 to 20Km!...and expected to get larger.....

    By the way, the death toll now is expected to be as high as 20.000 or more....maybe much more. Whole towns are missing....

    It is becoming clearer [despite official denials] that a meltdown has already occurred and is ongoing in two of the reactors - and now it is apparent the same processes have begun in a third! The design of these reactors likely will not have an 'explosive' dispersal of a radioactive aerosol, as at Chernobyl....but slowly much of the radiation will escape - and we are now talking about 300 x the amount that was at Chernobyl. It seems to me, that pretty soon all they can do is entombment, as at Chernobyl. This may well go down as the worst nuclear accident ever!

    It could hardly be worse, AFP just announced a nuclear emergency being announced at a totally different nuclear facility.... All the pumps that drive the cooling system have been damaged and there is no power for them. They are trying to pump sea water into them, but it is not working - for reasons unknown. So many valves and other things could have been damaged in the quake and tsunami. Now looking at a potential of 400x the amount of radioactive material as was in Chernobyl reactor.....gulp!

    They keep saying it isn't going to be like Chernobyl but I keep seeing Chernobyl. Including the deflection and and evasion of talking about it openly and truthfully. 238_Coffee_Mug_-_Far_Side_Crisis_Center_Lg.jpg

    News moves from bad to worse. I just learned that one of the [now] FOUR melting-down reactors was testing an experimental fuel called MOT - It contains PLUTONIUM, rather than Uranium...and if the radioactive products of that one are released it is SO many times more lethal and dangerous than the others [already very, VERY dangerous!!!]. There are still other reactors in the area where the same thing could soon happen. It is now believed that in 3, maybe 4 reactors the fuel rods have melted and are no longer interspaced with control rods, but lie as a molten mass of metal at the bottom of the containment vessel at about 3-4000C. At those temperatures it will, if not cooled, melt the concrete [takes a few days] and then melt its way directly down to the Earth's mantle....contaminating any water and air along the way....called the China Syndrome and once started, unstoppable.

    Default Second explosion at reactor

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2...or-monday.html
    Officials said a second hydrogen explosion has occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan, the Japanese broadcaster NHK reported Monday morning.
    But the inner reactor container was intact after the explosion, said Yukio Edano, Japan's chief cabinet secretary, and little radioactivity was dispersed.
    Tokyo Electric Power Co. said three people were injured and seven were missing in the explosion.

    I think you'll find the 'missing' are now radioactive dust. A hydrogen explosion is a very powerful one, locally. One has to hope that they are telling the truth on the fact that the #1 and #3 reactor vessels are not breeched and will not be....but that depends on if they can keep the temperatures down. Uncooled these types of reactors 'naturally' heat up to 4,000C, which is hot enough to melt any metal and even concrete and rock = China Syndrome and escape of all of the radioactive materials out of the plant - straight down....down perhaps 75Km or more, depending on the rock structures below. From hints I hear it is touch-and-go, at best if they are winning the cooling battle...and remember there are very large aftershocks several times per day that will continue for months or years! We will see...but I'm not sure I trust the authorities and not sure they even know the exact situation!

    Unreal....now reactor #2 is overheating...just as 1 and 3 did....they now have three side by side teetering on the edge of a meltdown.....

    I guess you can guess....the number 2 reactor's control rods are now fully exposed - and beginning the process of a melt-down. They have a little [LITTLE!] time to try to cool them...but they now have 3 reactors in a row all in about the same state. I just heard an expert say something I didn't know...that the best case scenario was emergency cooling of these three for about a year and then clean up... [i.e. the locals are not going home anytime soon....!]

    I dare not ask if it can possibly get any worst in case it almost certainly will.
