Fukushima Daichi nuclear power plant (Japan)

Post  wolfie on Wed Jul 13, 2011 3:24 am

Has anyone been taking any notice of the goings on since it first blew up and if so, what's your thoughts on it ?
As some will know,I have my own thoughts on it and it's bleak, in-fact I'm being mild when i say bleak.

Basically fruity as you know, the nuclear plant was in trouble after the tsunami right, when the cooling pumps gave up and the back up generators were knackered, resulting in the explosions we saw.
There were 2 main explosions and both were said to be down to a build up of hydrogen that occurred inside the buildings that housed the reactors.
if you look at both explosions you can see that one was a hydrogen explosion but the other one was a totally different explosion, from reactor number 3 which was the only reactor out of 6 that was using MOX fuel, meaning a mixed oxide consisting of uranium and plutonium and the plutonium is so dangerous, that just 2lbs of it distributed evenly over the planet would eventually kill every living person, it's that poisonous.
The blast in reactor number 3 actually blew the reactor apart and that's why you see the cloud go mushrooming up as if it was a nuclear detonation as opposed to the other reactor housing that blew apart with a sort of wide ring, look at both blasts and you will see what I'm on about.
The problem is that this complex has 6 reactors and 4 for deffo are in serious trouble and maybe all 6.
These building also contain spent fuel pools, basically they are like a huge pool that contains the spent fuel rods that are still highly radioactive and are still in a state of continuous heat and have to be cooled 24 hours a day in these pools to stop radioactivity spreading.
The Japanese give little snippets of info out about how they are containing it and will have it sorted but for me it's too late for that because some are already on full meltdown and you cannot just pour concrete over them like they did at chernobyl because the heat would literally just make the concrete molten or shatter it into smithereens.
they keep pouring water on them but it's pointless because all that's happening is the water turns to radioactive steam that is spewing into the atmosphere constantly.
Look up Helen Caldicott (who knows what she,s talking about) and listen to what she has to say.
It's scary stuff to be honest and not just for the Japanese but they are in immediate danger obviously.

This fukushima plant makes chernobyl look like a minor problem,which as we know it is far from that and to this day the chernobyl plant is still spewing radiation out and will need to have more containment poured onto it because the one that was done 26 years ago is decaying.
How Japan are going to sort out this mess is anyones guess because the chain reaction is already well underway (meltdown)
