I didn't hear the whole question but they were basically asking how the water they said they plan on pumping in was gonna help if it blew the vessel and they kept saying it would raise the water levels which is a total lie...if it is breached the water will flow out and the result is more and more radioactive water spilling out!

ETA: the reporter was even saying this was BS

Sure there has. You can check on usgs.gov but for me, following NewEarthquake on Twitter gets you the info almost as it occurs. Here's the info from USGS:

That's strange then. The site I mentioned must have been lagging or something. Might be a silly question but do I have to sign up to join twitter to receive the 'New earthquake' service?

You know it pisses me the # off!! two arseholes on skynews have just been talking about the quake and the first thing they go on about is the money side of things, they even had the nerve to moan about how much the UK will be donating in aid, saying it's "us the tax payer who will end up paying" #ing nobheads like them give the rest of the UK a bad name.... who the hell gives a # about money when people are dead, dying, trapped, homeless, scared..ect, ect.

Dear God, why must the world be ruled by A*SEH0LES????

"If there is a leak in the container how can you cover the rods with water, it doesn't make sense!?"


No source, was said live on NHK minutes ago.

Don't watch the MSM news. Its designed to dumb down everyone else, and irate those who question the 'official' story.

Stick to what you know best, shouting at 'armchair experts' on TV is a waste of time.

ALL the MSM is reporting another third blast at reactor 2!!

The downplaying can not go on for to much longer.

We might have a CORE NUCLEAR MELTDOWN for real!

This is not a test!

Get your potassium iodide nuke pills ready JUST IN CASE!!

Don't trust the government and MSM on this..

Listen to your gut!

They said that half the length of the fuel rods are exposed in unit 2 , Ummm ... what they didnt say is they have been since yesterday . Which means they are melted and are at the bottom of the inner containment vessel . Or at the bottom of the suppression chamber . That would mean full melt down , Im not sure. Is this possible without a huge explosion redneck? Sry , wrong thread

I'm not educated on the subject but why couldn't they just use liquid nitrogen or something?


Someone else suggested cement.

I believe that the normal procedure is to fill the vessel with sand once it reaches this stage.

Correct, they use lead, clay and boron as well.

I've basically been out of the loop as far as radiation spillage or leakage due to the fact that I could see things only getting worse.

I guess I was right

Well they are evacuating people now


Japan Nuclear Watch: Third Explosion, Possible Cracked Containment at Unit 2




Japanese authorities now reporting that about 6:14 a.m. (Tokyo) Tuesday, March 15, there was an explosion at the Daiichi Unit 2 of the Fukushima Nuclear Station. This explosion was heard, not seen from the outside.

The explosion reportedly occurred near the containment area. Plant officials fear there may now be a crack in the reactor containment, which would allow more serious releases of radiation. A “pressure suppression pool,” the doughnut-shaped area at the bottom of the reactor vessel may have been damaged, which officials are describing as “serious.”

They are evacuating non-essential personnel around the plant. Radiation levels spiked to 965 microsievert, and then fell back, but remain at elevated levels. Winds are from the NNW.



Does NOT look good

(Reuters) - The wind over a radiation-leaking nuclear plant in northern Japan will blow inland from the northeast and later from the east on Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.
