This is just completely nonsensical and your threads about Fukushima just keep becoming more and more uneducated. Really try researching things
instead of making post trying to make the situation at Fukushima worse than it is,(It's already pretty bad) and now you've just taken it to a purely
fantastical state. Also I feel as though this is not a genuine fear as poster above stated but a way for attention online. I truly had a genuine fear
and interest in Fukushima the day it happened and spent hours upon hours whole days even researching nuclear power and the situation at the site.
Something the OP is not willing to do as apparent in his last three threads on the subject. Any way can you provide your sources about the amount of
power a chain reaction at Fukushima can create. Then look up the properties of nuclear fuel. Then look up the effects of high temperature and
radiation on N2 molecules. Then look up how the sun works, Ill give you a hint (fusion) and then see if that is possible with nitrogen in our
atmosphere do to a chain retain of nuclear fuel. Try doing some research on a subject before coming on here and asking questions like this because of
a thought you had after watching a youtube video. If you do do this research and post it I would gladly have an educated discussion about it with you.
BGTM90, you're a fine one to be criticizing me.
So, Mr. Bigshot-Expert, need I remind you of what you said in the other thread? You admitted that the reactor buildings at Fukushima were sinking...
SINKING! So, if buildings are sinking in mud, this means that they do not have an adequate vertical vector of support, and if they do not have an
adequate vertical vector of support, how can you possibly imply, assume or conjecture that these buildings are stable with an adequate horizontal
vector of support? I studied enough Physics to know that if you apply a force, no matter how weak that force be, against an object that does not have
an adequate counteracting force like friction, then the object will move. The force of moving Fukushima groundwater against buildings' foundations is
significant. To repeat: by your own words, the buildings at Fukushima are sinking in mud. I'd be truly amazed if those buildings are not moving
laterally. Maybe the moving is at a rate of 1/16 of an inch per day... maybe an eighth of an inch... maybe 4 inches per day. I don't know, but to
suggest that measurements can easily be taken to prove or disprove this using photographs absolutely astounds me. A person would need close up, high
res before and after images of the buildings taken at the very same vantage point by the camera. Also, how do you compare an undamaged building in the
before photo to a dilapidated building in an after photo? You'd really need before and after photos of the foundations of the buildings, and how do
you obtain these?
Moving on to get this thread back on topic...
What you and the other respondents apparently choose to allow to fly over your heads is that Edward Teller's concerns about ignition of the
atmosphere were CONFIRMED
by his colleagues albeit at a low probability of happening.
So, this raises the question: back then, what were the calculated odds of an ignition of the atmosphere by a nuclear bomb test... one out of
1,000,000,000 or one out of 1,000,000 or one out of 1,000? Were people lying about the odds of such an event just to get the Manhattan Project back on
track? Let me tell you: there's a lot of lying coming out of governments and the mainstream media these days. This, not to mention that Internet
forums are reputed to be infested with shills.
Who knows? But if nuclear activity is associated with the possible ignition of the atmosphere, and it does not happen due to Fukushima, is it not
still a possibility due to some other catastrophe at some other nuclear power plant or due to some loony North Korean nuclear physicists' screwing
up, or perhaps due to our own nuclear physicists' screwing up?
