[Various] Japan Nuclear Emergency - Continuous Coverage of Damage and Radiation Risks - Page 220  

post #2191 of 2836
Not going to happen imo......Half the building/wiring etc is destroyed. Hence why they are having to go to more 'physical' methods! Imo the IIA have persponed the inevatable meltdown enough....

It's far away from Fukushima, but still bad news

Old news but still bad none the less! Thats along with at least 2 erruptions in Russia! Although if you look into tectonic plates you will soon discover most volcanoes lie along tectonic plates which are triggered by earthquakes.

I get kinda worried that the effects of the quake and potentially the upcoming supermoon is going to cause a whole bunch of other volcanoes along the ring of fire to blow as well
But if Mt. Baker does, I have a great (safe) view of it from my house's rear balcony

The last I read was that only reactors 3 and 4 had pools that were in trouble. The pool at reactor 4 has had the concrete stripped off it from the explosion earlier and currently one side is a bare steel retaining wall. Pool 4 was hosed already, while the pool at reactor 3 is being hosed right now, and once that is done they expect to be able to reconnect grid power to reactor 2. The cooling pumps for pools at reactor 5 and 6 are being run from a diesel generator. I don't know what the deal is with the pool at reactor 1.

Reactor 1 is FUBAR if you ask me. Its been 7 days already but the containment vestle is intact for that one which is great which = no risk. As for the rest of the reactors (3-4) if the pumps come online I hope to god they work as most of the wireing was probably in the concrete surrounding the reactors!

As for the supermoon I wont disagree/agree that it may have an effect on earth. We are talking massive amounts of gravity here! The only certain thing that exists in this universe is physics and math/maths (UK)

If you want real answers on fission etc I reccomend asking damric as he has a vast knowlage of these things from what I have seen.

I'm directly in the blast zone of Mt. Rainier, St. Helens, and Adams.

I should only get ash fall over here though.

Sadly this guy isnt half wrong, do you not see that plate movement has more than one outcome? Not to say that what he has said will come true. For instance Yellowstone has been rising at an alarming rate untill a few years ago and now it has stopped. Either because it is full and ready to erupt (unlikely). Or it is waiting for several plates to align/slip and fill the chamber full of magma to erupt massively. (I think about these things wayyyyy to much)

Also I fail to see how this has nothing to do with Japan as this is inevitable.

"Radiation levels lowered after water injection" That might have something to do with the rods not being in open air?? LOL

I can see completely why most people dont trust Japan TV, they are not giving specifics at all. Japan are a talented nation which understand radioactivity/isotopes etc.....

Either way all the peole in the USA who are GENUINELY scared.......Take a good hard look at what was in the reactors and the half life of that...You will soon see that you have been OWNED (as I said im not a USA hater....Far from it......im a thinker.....A lot more thinkers are needed in the usa)
