The US government or General Electric?

If it's General Electric i'll be highly impressed, as they only made half of the reactors at the fukishima plant.

Does anyone else think that the Sv scale is a bit... wrong?

I guess it'd be the US Gov, they're helping some stuff out as far as I know...

Sv scale = severity scale?

If that's what you're talking about; I think we're still too unstable to say that we're ok; but I disagree with France putting it up to a 6 rating since nothing bad really happened yet.

no Sv as in Sievert. The SI unit of radiation.

I think it's a crazy scale. The amount of radiation needs to me measured in mili or micro Sv.

Just plug in the generator and she'll be running like new.



This guy seems to think that melted fuel will burn through the reactor in about an hour.

I don't see how a melt through the bottom of the reactor's pressure vessel / containment = massive explosion as this guy seems to suggest.

In addition, I thought it has been said on multiple occasions that an event like Chernobyl was almost completely impossible due to the difference in fuel type?

I actually don't know but GE was already sending over diesel generators in case they couldn't get external power restored, so it may be a safe guess to say GE is sending the pumps, though it's more likely it would be the government.

Quite peculiar. I wonder what that was all about.

EDIT:
BREAKING NEWS: Smoke also seen at Fukushima plant's No. 2 reactor: agency (19:16)
NEWS ADVISORY: Grayish smoke above No. 3 spent nuke fuel pool stopped: agency (19:21)



I think the severity of the nuclear plant & the aftermath of the damage is definitely not being laid out in open site, for fear of public panic...

The Japanese are downplaying the severity in open media...

The US is claiming they are lying...

The US Puts up multiple Radiation detectors on the West Coast...

The world is at a halt watching this crysis in Japan unfold & the Middle East crysis as well, both of which will have a serious impact on the markets, of this I'm certain...

(We have already seen some declines & stalemates.)

Fear is driving the stock markets over Japan & Middle East, people are pulling money out, including Japan, and many other investors, it's like this craze is going on in the backdrop of the aftermath of this travesty in Japan, though other factors, like the Middle East & Africa, are playing havoc in the Oil Sectors...

Higher Oil Prices means higher Food Prices people, and that's what started the whole thing in the middle east, the poor are revolting for horrible conditions & high food prices...

I'm starting to wonder where this is all going to go in the end, and no I don't think Japan is being honest either, if the death toll continue to rise, this could threaten to send Japan into a major depression... It's the millions of people who are fleeing & homeless in Japan that threatens to make this situation a lot worse than it needs to be...

Furthermore the contamination of food will drive food prices even higher as demand for export rises in the US...

I'm rather sick of the news on this whole thing myself, nothing good is going to come about this, and if chicken little wasn't screaming in my ear, "The Sky is Falling", then I'd have some hope for Japan right now, but as I see it, this nation is in devastation in the aftermath of the monstrous quakes, Tsunamis, and now this Nuclear Crisis.

I think that Japan really needs help right now, and it's the responsibility of nations worldwide to lend a hand, and fast! If there was ever a time for U.N. involvement, now would be the time...

You should read the last few pages, the situation is steadily improving. Even the U.S. is going so far as to acknowledge that.

Chernobyl had weird design that made them very unstable when they were running in low power. The low limit was supposed to be something like 700MW and the incompetent operators allowed it to dip to 20 before stabilizing to 200.

Then they started the test in which the turbine was supposed to supply the power to cooling system while the steam was stopped and the reactor in the process of shutting down. But that meant a moment with no cooling.

The lack of understanding of nuclear fission + reactor design + no cooling + fuel rod fully exposed + lack of safety like extra containment meant it blew up. The full detail are in wiki under chernobyl

All reactors design not based on Soviet style are much more stable and safer. The worst that can happen is a 6 on disaster scale with some significant radiation release but no boom-boom.

What looks like Reactor 3 (with the spent fuel pool problems) appears to be much smaller than it should be, and indeed was a few days ago. Considering the spent fuel pools are housed in the upper portions of that building, and most of it is releasing black smoke, I'd say it's somewhere near a disaster. Not on the Chernobyl 'boom-boom' scale of course, but it's still not looking good
