Neat. I live about 20 miles away from this reactor. Who calls dibs on my rig?

There is no such thing as a "news blackout." The Obama administration is not stupid enough to even attempt to cover up something of that magnitude.

I didn't realize the extent of damages that were caused by the releasing of the dam water.



Considering we are currently still having quite a few rain/thunderstorms for the last week, seems to me things could get pretty bad indeed!

yea man all that rain and stuff is worse because people pave roads and stuff and that water goes straight into the river instead of soaking into the ground and recharging the aquifer .

OK, I agree the title & the first website is bad, but the news is more about the Reactor's REAL problems, and the problem that, the flooding hasn't really ended, the rain storms have still been here for the last week, flooding will continue, blackouts have continued, and many are starting to wonder what's really going on here...

The dam will not be closed till late August, but if rains continue, like they normally do in June, things could go from bad to worse rather quickly!

There is a reason why the Gov. ordered a no fly zone over the area, obviously it doesn't take rocket science to figure that one out...

TMI was inconsequential. Your nuclear weapons testing released orders of magnitude greater concentrations of radiation.

I think the Gov would be wise to keep it hush hush, but it's impossible with the invention of the internet, truly...

Naturally the media is paid to say what they say, and you don't want to step on the wrong toes...

I think there is more to this story than is meeting the eye here...

I don't think the sources are bad, though the first one may be controversial, nobody knows what's real at this point...

But one thing that is certain is, there is real cause for concern here...

These plants are at the heart of America...
Uh, isn't it illegal for your government to censor the press?

It is most likely standard procedure the second something out of the ordinary happens. If there is one thing nuclear plants like it is procedures:

Stubbed your toe? There is a procedure for that.

Need the toilet? Really long procedure for that too ("comfort break" planning is important).

Lost your pen? Yep, you got it, procedure.

I am not kidding, don't ever loose anything inside a "hot" area of a nuke plant, and that includes turbine hall where I usually worked (I've never actually been in a reactor building). They check what you take in there and you better darn well have it when you leave. Otherwise you are sent back to look for it, just in case it ends up getting in somewhere and causing a problem. I hated working on nuke plants for this reason, give me a nice, easy going fossil plant any day.

The thread on the Japan reactor disaster is full of comments slamming the Japanese government for covering up/limiting news, yet here its being touted as a good thing!

Awesome!
