[RT NEWS] Officials reject concerns over 500 percent radiation increase on California beach - Page 3

@OP Do you dig up every negative Fukushima article you can find to post them here?

Nuclear technology should not be discounted by Fukushima or any other accident. If anything, it should promote greater scrutiny on nuclear safety system implementation. Just like the recent railway accidents should on railway safety systems (and the lack of modernization on railway safety).

You have to dig. You won't find it in the MSM.

One could argue we are kidding ourselves if we think we can make it safe.

I would argue, who thought it was a good idea to build on a known active fault line. I'm posting this stuff for info on fukushima, not on nuclear energy in general.

The earthquake itself did not cause the Fukushima incident - the reactors in the plant shut down and survived the earthquake. However, with the Japanese coast subsided 3m after the earthquake, the tsunami walls were of no use and the diesel generators that were cooling the still-hot reactors were flooded by the seawater from the tsunami. Same story happened with the port of Minamisanriku - 10m tsunami walls could not withstand 10m tsunamis because the coast had subsided 3m.

 

RT is never a good source anyway.

Well, then lets not build on the east or west coast of the US, because they both have known, and very active fault lines. The east coast more than the west coast, too.

The real question is why weren't they reactors built on a known fault line without some kind of isolation system, or suspension system to keep the reactor units off direct contact with the ground. It is well known that a rigid sturdy structure is generally very weak against earthquakes and their rhythmic motion.

Maybe not? I thought it was a breach, If it was a meltdown due to lack of cooling, that is an entirely different story.

No it's not. There is an explanation for it and 5 times anything the normal amount is cause for some concern.

"Hi, I'm sorry sir but we've ordered 5 times the normal amount"

"It's meaningless. Don't worry about it"

Never going to happen. And this is radiation. Might not be end times for California, but it's still has meaning and is still not right.

RT is never a good source anyway.

If the earthquake itself damaged the structure, it would put every similarly designed plant near a fault line in the unsafe catagory. Reason to cover it up? Probably never know.

Very true. It is blatant propaganda

and its highly hypocritical of them to talk about nuclear disasters

Indeed. Regardless of the plant's power source (coal, LNG, etc) that was a bad idea. If it had been an LNG plant, the devastation would have been FAR worse than this nuclear accident.

by MSM you mean, credible news services that vet their sources and are held accountable when they release inaccurate information? yeah, those are way worse than underground conspiracy blogs! thumb.gif

Damn Russians, cannot trust anything they say, all anti US garbage,

http://voiceofrussia.com/news/2014_01_04/US-Navy-sailors-sue-Fukushima-owner-TEPCO-over-radiation-exposure-during-aid-operation-3447/

No wait it was US allies who said it was ok for all the US staff on the USS Ronald Reagan to help and it was safe. Anyway a bit off topic & I note your sarcasm. thumb.gif
