INES officially has no level higher than 7. I understand that maybe now there may be reason to add 8 to thier scale, but 9? 10?! Come on now, for the time being there's nothing higher than a rating of 7.


On the old Richter scale for Earthquakes each level number is ten times higher than the one before. So a 9.0 is ten times higher than an 8.0

Based on that... the scale of Fukushima, considering the NUMBER of reactors involved (as opposed to only ONE in TMI and Chernobyl) PLUS the 600,000 spent fuel rods, PLUS the use of MOX... PLUS the fact that it has been ONE MONTH and NO PROGRESS in getting it under control...

yeah 9 at LEAST, maybe 10

Finally after 2 weeks Seattle news Kiro7 got the results back from the seaweed samples.
Guess what? There is iodine 131 in it, but nothing to worry about, keep moving don't worry.....

Akira Kurosawa's Dreams
Mount Fuji in Red from 1990
Watch it now, its scary to think it could be coming true.



Man: Mt. Fuji erupted? Terrible....
Woman: It's worse than that. didn't you know? The nuclear plant has exploded.
Old Man: The six atomic reactors, they're exploding one after another.

How many sieverts is 10,000 terabequerls?


I am certainly no scientist, but this is the calculated result I came up with. 10,000 terabequerls
equals 270,000 curies. Upon calculating uranium 235 into the mix, I got a total of 7080 sieverts per hour at the base- not microsieverts, not millisieverts, but SIEVERTS. If this number is correct, this is a massive amount of radiation that was being released at one point, and is still being released now (at who knows what amounts).

and keep in mind how many days this is going on...do the figures for a week..or 2 weeks...
If I remember right the total release for chernobyl was like 50 million curies

You are right. Is still being released in accumulation. Corrected.

Wow, I had forgotten that I had watched this over 20 years ago. The eight stories in Dreams were from dreams/nightmares that he had experienced . He was quite prescient with "Mt Fuji in Red"....
Raises the hairs on the back of my neck now!

TEPCO says fire out at battery storage bldg near Fukushima-1 reactors 1-4. No effect to reactors, water cooling continues. Then again this does come from TEPCO where every day is opposite day.

Fire is (supposedly) out. This quote is really self-explanatory - we only have the info that TEPCO feeds us for now, and what they're saying is that the fire did not have any effect on the reactors, it was in a nearby battery storage building. What caused it... who knows?

b attery storage? a good guess ( and a real shot in the dark ) is heat causing those batteries to vent flammable material , I wonder just how hot it is around 3 and 4 right now
Of course it could be hydrogen coming up from leaking plumbing or cracks in the ground and accumulating inside some of the surrounding structures( this of course implies that four has poolium on the move in and under the reactor building)

Just to add to the overall data on this whole thing. I created this graph from the latest data downloaded from USGS 00:30 GMT Tue 12 Apr 2011. It just shows what a hard time Japan has been having since 9th March. The 9M earthquake spot is up in the text.
