Great stuff cosmicpixie, nice finds. Now in a truly appreciative (yet undeniably lazy) tone, did you find any nuggets in there worth sharing?

US Government: "No need to worry, there will not be any threat posed by radioactive fallout in the US. Oh, by the way, we're deploying a buttload of portable radiation monitors along the west coast. There's no connection, it's just a coincidence, we had them laying around and thought we should put them to use."
smoke was confirmed to be billowing from the nearby No. 2 unit at the power plant, suggesting that a spent nuclear fuel pool in the facility may also be boiling.

Apparently they have restored power to the Fukushima plant.

Any one know anything about this?edit on 17-3-2011 by Mianeye because: (no reason given)edit on 17-3-2011 by Mianeye because: (no reason given)

Thank you Redneck for injecting a little solid science into the discusssion.
People are just terrified of the unknown and that fact coupled with a short attention span for scientific fact (ie the difference between types of radioactive decay, half-lives, meteorological data, etc etc) yields unecessay extreme worry. Underlying the fear, IMHO, is a sense that we are being lied to on a daily basis by TPTB. Again, IMHO, I believe we are but not regarding everything, all the time.
I think everyone should be prepared to take care of themselves regardless of where in particular they may believe the threat lies (EMP, X flares, weather related, magnetice pole shift, physical pole shift, EQ, financial colapse.) Besides trying to ensure physical survival, ones spiiritual preparation is paramount. We are spiritual beings having a physical experience way more than vice versa.
Helicopters supplied by Japan's military dumped only four loads of seawater, totaling about 30 tons, on the plant, before abandoning the effort Thursday morning, although officials said they would resume efforts when possible. Most of the water missed the reactors.
In another disappointment, officials of Tokyo Electric Power Co., which owns the plant, said that a new power line being strung to the plant from the country's electric grid would not be completed until Friday at the earliest. Officials had originally hoped to start connecting the new line Thursday afternoon.
The helicopters also took new pictures of the spent fuel pools on the roofs of the reactor buildings and have apparently confirmed fears that the pool at reactor No. 4 has boiled dry.
1844: Japanese authorities have informed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that engineers were able to lay an external grid power line cable to unit 2 of Fukushima nuclear plant, according to a statement on the IAEA website.The operation was completed at 0830 GMT.

They are now reporting problems with the spent fuel pool in #2.
They cannot dump water on the spent fuel pool at #2 because the roof is still intact. They are focusing on trying to restore electricity the this unit first.edit on 3/17/2011 by Erasurehead because: (no reason given)

She just said that they are expecting to restore power to the number 2 reactor tomorrow( friday morning). The electrical systems were not damaged as bad or at all. If this was posted already, then sorry.
