Unfortunately, the UCS, (Union of Concerned Scientists), are one of the sources I complained about who are poo-pooing the Fukushima problems.
For example, their statement about Unit 3 MOX makes their real position clear. Not to mention their relative silence lately.
Safety implications differ depending on the amount of MOX fuel that is used. For example, at Japan's Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, about 6 percent of the fuel in reactor #3 is MOX fuel, which contains about 200 kilograms of plutonium. This amount is a small enough that it will likely make no significant difference in the amount of plutonium that may escape into the environment
Union of Concerned Scientists
Whereas I think that an extra 200 Kilograms of plutonium in the environment IS a significant difference.edit on 4/24/11 by makeitso because: (no reason given)
The "Fat Man" atomic bomb that destroyed Nagasaki in 1945 used 6.2 kilograms of plutonium and produced an explosive yield of 21-23 kilotons [a 1987 reassessment of the Japanese bombings placed the yield at 21 Kt]. Until January 1994, the Department of Energy (DOE) estimated that 8 kilograms would typically be needed to make a small nuclear weapon. Subsequently, however, DOE reduced the estimate of the amount of plutonium needed to 4 kilograms.xt

It appears the assessment of Reactor 3 having blown its top that was discussed on ATS - is beginning to echo...loudly. Follow the LINK for the full story with photos that will look very familiar to ATS members following this thread. As a reminder, this is the MOX fuel reactor.
high resolution photographic proof that the reactor core exploded at Fukushima unit 3

as i have stated i cant make a thread as im not informed on the situation
that is why i kindly asked at first for some info
i didnt ask to be shunned
what is impossible about making a thread of the main conspiracy and then people adding to it?

TEPCO discloses radiation map
Radiation levels around the Number 3 reactor building, which was damaged by a powerful hydrogen explosion, are higher than in other locations, and 300 millisieverts per hour of radiation was detected in debris on a nearby mountainside.
The map has not been released to the public but Japanese MSM have this mock up.
The 900 millisieverts per hour object was the piece of concrete 12 inches by 12 inches by 2 inches removed yesterday.
