Something bad is going to happen there. The reactor is still not shut off and is spewing radiation everywhere even now. frown.gif

instead of encasing everything in a cement dome they built tents... actually i don't think they've even done that yet.

I really hate Russia Today, but since this segment wasn't about the US (despite like 5 jabs at our nuclear sensibility and media), it is very scary information indeed. Why couldn't they attempt to bury it with cement like Chernobyl? Is it just too far underground now? I can't believe it hasn't cooled underground. (maybe I'm missing some principle of uranium such as never cooling until it is expended)

and why bring up Hiroshima as a comparison? are they talking about the radioactive fallout in the local environment?

If they encase it in cement, when the fuel hits water, it creates pressure and then we have a hydrovolcanic explosion like the article says. And uranium would take hundreds of years to cool. It's not like they throw a bucket of water on it and it cools down. Decay heat will keep it molten and burning for decades.

In the case of Chernobyl, they were able to stop the fuel from hitting the water pool:

The smoldering graphite, fuel and other material above, at more than 1200 °C,[54] started to burn through the reactor floor and mixed with molten concrete from the reactor lining, creating corium, a radioactive semi-liquid material comparable to lava. If this mixture had melted through the floor into the pool of water, it was feared it could have created a serious steam explosion that would have ejected more radioactive material from the reactor. It became necessary to drain the pool and fill it with concrete. It is believed that if the fuel had reached the cooling pool in Chernobyl, most of Europe would be uninhabitable.

Fukushima on the other hand it right next to the ocean which can't be drained. The reactor which is at risk of the hydrovolcanic explosion is reactor #3 which has 75 tons of MOX fuel fuel which is much more toxic than the fuel used in the other reactors. Chernobyl had just 50 tons and that was just uranium, most of which was ejected after the graphite explosion.

If you think this is just fear mongering, well consider this. After the earthquake, everyone said that a melt down was impossible, then they said the containment vessels wouldn't be breached, then they said the reactors wouldn't explode...

They are going to burn 1000s of tons of radioactive debris in Tokyo's garbage incinerators

that is a crime against humanity, loads of that radioactive dust will be thrown back up into the atmosphere, to be breathed in by kids, everyone else, and spread across to Canada and the US, then Europe and Russia

this is a crime against humanity

eidt: and this far worse than Chernobyl, as I was saying from week 1, since I got my info from outside the corporate liars at the mega 6 kabal

That's what's so scary. If the fuel creates a steam explosion it would release more radiation into the atmosphere than if you simply exposed the rods to the open air.

so is this the mayan prediction for 2012?

They have the power to control the mindless mass.

Anyways this isn't good at all, hopefully they can get it under control and soon. I would hate to see anymore area affected.

Uh no, actually the media is far more crafty than that. They use the news to redirect your attention away from real world events, so it makes perfect sense that they would avoid reporting about how this is like a damn doomsday scenario. Think about it. What do you think the news that China, Japan, Korea, most of the Pacific and the Pacific US could be wiped out would do to world markets that are already near collapse?

20-29x more radiation release than the Hiroshima bomb. Radioactive steam giving off 10,000 times the safe YEARLY limit in 1 hr(2x the lethal limit).

So do we have any more people claiming nuclear is safe or can we safely assume that stupid talk is over with for the rest of human existence?

Well traditionally war was the natural depopulation mechanism.

Since that's politically unacceptable today, this seems rather convenient.
