Gases accumulating in sediment underneath highly contaminated water — Spark caused by static electricity could ignite hydrogen blast
Inspections of containers holding contaminated water at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant found that at least 10 percent have leaks, which could trigger a hydrogen explosion.
Tokyo Electric Power Co., the plant’s operator, reported its findings at a meeting with a study group from the Nuclear Regulation Authority on May 22. It said no radioactive water was found to have escaped outside the concrete structures that encase the containers.
According to TEPCO, there were about 1,300 such containers at the plant as of May 20.
They store waste water from the ALPS (advanced liquid processing system) equipment that removes radioactive substances from contaminated water.
The containers, which are made of polyethylene, are 1.8 meters high and have diameters of 1.5 meters.
The first leak was discovered in a lid on April 2.
This is getting serious!!!!!!
Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.
Also, protesters in Japan are taking their protests to court and winning. It now is extremely difficult to start up a nuclear reactor due to strict safety protocol which is now in place.
Can someone here point me to what they think is the best fallout map for this situation? I've wound up residing on the Northern coast of Oregon for a few months after having spent some previous months on the BC coast and so, i'm more than a bit concerned, but not sure what to think or believe about any of it now.
Maybe there is a link on this thread? I'll start looking.
Thanks for any help in the matter.
On Thursday, just over four years since a deadly earthquake and subsequent tsunami crippled the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) confirmed a long suspected theory: complete meltdown in the No. 1 reactor.
TEPCO and the International Research Institute for Nuclear Decomissioning (IRID) have been studying the interior of the reactor using tomographic imagery to determine precisely where the fuel is, or in this case isn’t, located. The xray-like images confirmed no fuel remained in the building itself, likely having melted through the floor into a holding unit below.

How could he get close enough to take these BEAUTIFUL pictures if it were dangerous?
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
On 7/21/2015, Tepco announced Fukushima plant area has irregularly sunk since 311.
It has been known that the reference point sank by 709 mm but Tepco has not reported the height above the sea level of each building.
The report reads Reactor 1 turbine building sank by 730 mm, Reactor 2 by 725 mm, Reactor 3 by 710 mm, Reactor 4 by 712 mm.
No wonder the Russian Government wants a large presence in the Arctic.
Quote:Before the London Convention of 1972, an international agreement that prohibited marine dumping, countries were free to use the oceans as a trash heep for nuclear waste. Though the Soviets signed the treaty in the late 1980s, it wasn't until after the break up of the Soviet Union in 1991 that the Russians opened up to the international community about the extent of the Arctic dumping campaign.
Japan Times Wrote:Tokyo Electric Power Co. succeeded Sunday in safely removing a massive piece of debris weighing roughly 20 tons from the fuel pool of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant’s damaged reactor 3 building, the utility said.
The operation was considered a major step toward removing the 566 fuel rod assemblies that have remained in the pool since the triple meltdown at the Fukushima plant in March 2011.

Why does the word oozing make me think of thread?
into the ocean (after cleaning?) tomorrow:
Hope they know what they're doing over there
