Fantastic! If I order immediately will I get a bacon watch? chuckle.gif

Quote:Finland’s most prominent expert on nuclear energy, Olli Heinonen, agrees with the US authorities’ gloomy assessment of the situation in Japan’s damaged nuclear power plants.

On Wednesday, Gregory Jaczko, the Chairman of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), gave an account of the gravity of the situation that was clearly more alarming than the one given by Japanese authorities.
”The facts support what Jaczko said”, noted Heinonen, the former Deputy Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Wasington on Thursday.

According to Heinonen, the Japanese evaluate the situation by different standards from those used by the US authorities. However, he did not believe that they would misrepresent the facts.
Heinonen said that the crisis in the Japanese nuclear power plants is by no means over.
”Let us hope that they will be able to find a solution to the situation in a couple of days, but it does not look good”, Heinonen noted further.

Quote:Reporting from Los Angeles, Kesennuma and Tokyo— U.S. government nuclear experts believe a spent fuel pool at Japan's crippled Fukushima reactor complex has a breach in the wall or floor, a situation that creates a major obstacle to refilling the pool with cooling water and keeping dangerous levels of radiation from escaping.

That assessment by U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials is based on the sequence of events since the earthquake and information provided by key American contractors who were in the plant at the time, said government officials familiar with the evaluation. It was compelling evidence, they said, that the wall of the No. 4 reactor pool has a significant hole or crack.


Unlike the reactor itself, the spent fuel pool does not have its own containment vessel, and any radioactive particles and gases can more easily spew into the environment if the uranium fuel begins to burn. In addition, the pool, which contains 130 tons of uranium fuel, is housed in a building that Japanese authorities say appears to have been damaged by fire or explosions.

A breach in the pool would leave engineers with a problem that has no precedent or ready-made solution, said Edwin Lyman, a physicist with the Union of Concerned Scientists.

"My intuition is that this is a terrible situation and it is only going to get worse," he said. "There may not be any way to deal with it."

This morning on Al Jazeera, they had as a guest a Nuclear Physicist from Israel (I forget his name)

He lambasted the efforts to 'cool' the fuel rods and reactor with water canons & helicopter drops. Says the efforts are futile.

That they should be constructing a special concrete tomb over the reactor and that this process should have started days ago. doesn't understand why this has not already begun.

These reactors will not be used again, and that they have been seriously breached.

If they post the clip online I will post it. But by then I guess it might be irrelevant to what is happening on the ground.

well I think it's pretty obvious it's futile. Yesterday they hosed down the reactors for around 15 minutes and today for around 40 minutes. I guess they're going to try a little tomorrow as well damned.gif

Yeah this hosing down of the reactors is an absurd going through the motions. This is no time to be dragging heels on eliminating a terrible danger to Japan and the world. sad2.gif

If they put as much effort into hosing down the reactors as they do
hosing down the public,,,

well shit, there'd be no heat at tall folks

hi5.gif Amen. The Japanese have bent over backwards to make this appear to be less than it really is, when in all actuality, theres enough nuclear material on those reactors and spent fuel rods to kill everyone on this dirt ball a couple hundred times.

Theres obviously no saving anything at this point and the safest bet is to encase them in concrete ala Chernobyl and forget about ever using this technology again.

Quote:The government says an outside power source is unlikely to be available at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant for some time, although electricity is urgently needed to cool the reactors.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said on Friday that the installation of power cables at the Number One and Number 2 reactors is expected to be completed on Saturday. The operation to add power cables at the Number 3 and Number 4 reactors is likely to end on Sunday.

The agency said, however, that it will take some time to confirm the safety of the damaged facilities.

The government and Tokyo Electric Power Company have been scrambling to restore power at the plant to restart the cooling systems for the reactors.

The earthquake and tsunami on March 11th severed the plant's electricity supply and destroyed its emergency generators.

Funny Planet
what's it about,,, anyway?

They go into the middle east
stir up shit
just like they did,,, EVERYWHERE,,, But especially Darfur, because China got the Oil Contracts
and Chevron got the boot.

Now, since the C.I.A. got the folks in LIb-er-rate-ya's all fucking stirred up

They created a Monster where none exist
or didn't until C.I.A. created it.

and again,,, NOW,,, the Global SWIPE force has the cause

and AGAIN,,, A FUCKING GAIN,,, guess who gets to go kill and die in this shit.

Fucking Planet
small wonder the Aliens play people here like pawns on a chessboard

Earthlings make the most interesting TOYS.

and,,, the Earthlings make themselves TOYS,,, Gladly at that too.

Fucking Earthlings love to drop a lead ball right on their own fucking foot.


and the fucks,,, they want to go out into space with this consciousness?

Ain't gonna happen,,, sorry folks
you all have been quarantined to this ROCK

Why you may ask?

Look around yourselves

How ya' doing with what you got's man?
