That was a touching performance AK, thanks for posting it.

I found a citizen's anti-nuclear site rich with information, should anyone be interested. I linked at the haiku page which is one of my favorite creative endeavours.

http://www.cnic.jp/english/newsletter/haiku.html

Unheard voices in the unseen terror
Persecution and ostracization for Japan's afflicted
They flip the reactor switch to the 'on' position and will do it again

Oh, and by the way, the authorities in Japan are now backpeddling on their decision to phase out nuclear power by 2030.

On a personal note, my nephew who is a nuclear engineer, just secured his first job with the place that makes the CANDU reactors. When I debate the ills of nuclear power he always touts the advantages.

More haikus:

AP Interview: Japan nuke plant water worries rise

Quote:TEPCO is close to running a new treatment system that could make the water safe enough to release into the ocean. But in the meantime its tanks are filling up - mostly because leaks in reactor facilities are allowing ground water pour in.

I'm sure water can leak out as easily as in through those cracks. damned.gif

damned.gif Well, this is far from positive. gaah.gif

Would be interesting if you had a Geiger counter to check those debris out. I'm sure this is just the first wave of it. sad2.gif

Too bad they didn't have the TSA back then to do a strip search and rectal exam for invasive species. They don't just keep us safe from terrorists you know. coffeetime.gif

Quote from Greenpeace article "Japan's Radiation Monitoring Unreliable" - (Iitate hot spot):

"Decontamination efforts are seriously delayed and many hot spots that were repeatedly identified by Greenpeace are still there," Teule said. "It is especially disturbing to see that there are many hot spots around playground equipment, exposing children who are most vulnerable to radiation risks," she said. In tests carried out over four days last week, Greenpeace also found that radiation levels in Iitate village, where the government is hoping to soon return evacuated residents, are still many times over the limit, with decontamination efforts patchy. Greenpeace's Japan nuclear campaigner Kazue Suzuki said attempts to clean up were "misguided". "One home or office may be cleaned up, but it is very unlikely that the whole area will be freed of radiation risks within the next few years," given the mountainous and heavily forested nature of the region, she said. "The government continues to downplay radiation risks and give false hope (of returning home) to victims of this nuclear disaster," said Suzuki.

Nuclear Share of Nations Energy - The BS Chart as I would like to call it. Nukes are for enrichment for weapons while taxing the hell out of citizens while killing the population through release of nuke waste!

Why isn't the USA #1 in nuclear power???


We need more nukes!!!

13.gif According to the charts, the US has 1/4 of the world's reactors, 5% of the world's population yet only manages to supply 25% of the country's energy needs.

So let me try to put this in perspective. America owns 25% of the world's breweries but only manages to provide beer to 0.2% (5/25) of the world's population.

Yes, more breweries is what you need coffeetime.gif

Surprisingly the chart is completely inaccurate.

1. Lithuania has no nuclear power.
2. France produces 78.8% of its power from Nukes.
3. The US only produces 19.6% of its power from Nukes.

The US needs 4 times as many reactors to "catch up" to France. We should have 416 reactors. We currently only have 104!!!

Why is this a disaster thread???

TEPCO (the Japanese power company) did an outstanding job of containing nuclear reactors that had gone uncooled for 24 hours.

The brave TEPCO employees who brought the reactors to a cold status should be praised for their courage and perseverance in the face of adversity.

We should celebrate their success. They contained the radioactivity so successfully that more people were lost in the evacuation of Fukushima than would have been lost if they had stayed.
