[Various] Japan Nuclear Emergency - Continuous Coverage of Damage and Radiation Risks - Page 192

Not sure if this has been posted, a live webcam from someone at Yokosnews in Yokkaichi, Mie, Japan. He's just talking about what he has experienced right now but is giving news updates as they get them in Japan.

Gah, this thread is both good and bad.

I work in nuclear power and have a couple points.

First, please try and get your info from here: http://nei.cachefly.net/newsandevent...n-that-region/

NEI won't be filled with all the fanfare and dramatics of outlet media sources.

Next does Damric work in nuclear power now? Most navy nukes do when they get out. If so he can get into some serious trouble with his employer since ALL companies that own and operate nukes in the US have issued orders for their employees to NOT speculate or discuss these matters to the media, on the web, or any other type of public outlet.

While your work on this thread is much appreciated, a lot of what you have is pure speculation. It's good that you have the updates and such. It's your sources that may be...shall we say skewed.

Ok, we have 50 different news agencies saying 50 different things changing their story every 5 minutes. We are expected to know which is right with conflicting information.

One minute they're battling dangerous radiation, the next minute they're sitting in the park drinking coffee.

Edano was vague, said workers would go to a safe place. I checked w/ NISA & TEPCO, who clarified workers were moving inside but not leaving.

Well of course they said workers were still there. They are Brave Japanese, fearless.

Who wants to start a panic if they said they just abandoned the place?
They will die trying to fight this thing even if it's futile. I believe they will have to resort to encapsulating all four reactors with a sarcophagus. I don't believe they will be able to control it, not if the containment domes are being damaged.

We need the true story. It should be getting easier and easier to cool them, not harder and harder. We don't need it sugar coated by an anonymous twitter user.

Radiation levels at the plant have surged and dropped repeatedly over the past few days. The most recent spike "probably" occurred "because the containment vessel in reactor No. 3 has been damaged," a spokesman for Japan's nuclear safety agency later told reporters.

Anti-Nuclear protest are growing world-wide, seems like this incident may spark a major revolt by the people of the world to end Nuclear Power Plants all together...

I cannot say, in the light of what's happening in Japan, that they would be wrong to do so.

The protests were staged in Berlin and other cities days after a powerful earthquake damaged nuclear plants in Japan and spurred fears of radiation there.

Thorben Becker of the Federation for Environmental Protection, an environmental group, said the movement had received a major boost from the crisis in Japan.

Becker said more than 100,000 turned up in more than 400 cities. There were hundreds of people at the Berlin protests and shouts of "turn them off," a reference to Germany nuclear reactors, rang through the demonstration.
To me the aftermath is just as important as the actual original story, so when Japan is done melting-down, what next?

No worries, Damric works at a steel mill I believe.

Heh. Heh.

? was this intended to be a joke because it was a little funny. but I have confidence that he knows what he's talking about and knows more than you and I would ever know put together.

So what's going on with this? I don't even bother following the news anymore about this, 50 different stations saying 50 different things.

Is the radiation continuously getting worse, or are the workers back there doing their best to maintain stability?
