As bad as this could be please chill...

Remember Chernobyl?

There are steps that can be taken.


It's just going to SUCK big time if true

My next question then, is if it isn't strong enough and can't contain it, what happens?

The best explanation: China Syndrome

Essentially we have a runaway reaction that has turned into a blob of radio-active goo nearly as hot as the surface of the sun. If that gets through the containment and burns through to a water table, the resulting explosion could be very large (not nuclear large), but the fallout and radioactivity thrown into the atmosphere *could* be as intense as a nuclear bomb.


Coming from you, this definitely adds to the gravity of this situation. We can only watch and wait ( and for any of us who believe, pray. )

The 'crawl' at the bottom of the screen on Russian Television (RT) just stated, "Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission says one of country's nuclear power plants might be going into meltdown"

Im not an expert but from what i know about nuclear reactors is the rods are clamped into the centre of the reactor encased in concrete and metal, without the right amount of coolant they heat up and corrode the clamps and themselves and can drop from the clamps and hit the floor and can basically melt the metal and concrete casing, sparking / exploding while it melts everything around it, add in some powerful aftershocks you have a radioactive firecracker in a tin can. its a horror show

I will need to read up on the chernobyl. Let's hope containment can be made....If not, I sure don't plan on taking chances having any more kids.

(side note: I liked your other avatar better slayer!)

Well, according to todays jet stream forcast if there werer radiation today than most of California, all of Oregon and the southern coast of Washington would take a direct hit. It would then spread inland across the states, hiting the midwest.

Praying to God that this does not materialize into a fall-out situation and we all move forward after this with a little greater appreciation for the world and life that we DO have.

Humans are not smart enough to be messing around with nuclear power,if we were this scenario would not be taking place.Earthquake or no earthquake .You cant have your yellowcake and eat it too
edit on 12-3-2011 by 12voltz because: of the inevitable consequences

Looks like we are past that, but from what I have read it will most probably be in Japan not traveling on the prevailing winds. I could be wrong.

i remember cherynoble i wa 11 when it happened and have seen quite a few youtube vids on it. you could actually seee the reactor core glowing!
men died from sradiation poisoning, building the concrete surrounding it. today, the concrete is falling apart and will eventually need a much needed makeover to keep the radiation contained. i thinkit slike 6,000 years or soemthing before its gunnabe considered safe thier agian.
the cloud of radiation form cherynoble, spread over 800 mils wesward over eastern europe.

Nice find OP. I hope this guy is wrong, but I fear he is not. I think this reactor is on its way to a full-blown meltdown.

I agree with the other poster who is asking for prayers.


PLEASE...Does anyone know what a full-blown melt-down means?????? What would happen?


Sorry man...here this would probably give you a better description of what has happened in the past (no worry about too much speculation there), and probably a pretty good idea on what to expect in the future....to a certain extent as technology has evolved and from what I have heard the Japanese have some sort of dome shield or something that is supposed to deploy and completely encase the affected reactor.

en.wikipedia.org...




The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986, at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine (then in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, part of the Soviet Union). It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history and is the only level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale.

The disaster occurred on 26 April 1986, at reactor number four at the Chernobyl plant, near the town of Pripyat in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, during a systems test. A sudden power output surge took place, and when an attempt was made for emergency shutdown, a more extreme spike in power output occurred which led to a reactor vessel rupture and a series of explosions. This event exposed the graphite moderator components of the reactor to air and they ignited; the resulting fire sent a plume of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area, including Pripyat.

The plume drifted over large parts of the western Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and Northern Europe. Large areas in Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia had to be evacuated, with over 336,000 people resettled. According to official post-Soviet data,[1][2] about 60% of the fallout landed in Belarus.

Dont know the validity of this publication, but this short article posted about 45 minutes ago says the Cesium (which results from nuclear fission) has been detected. Meaning that the fuel in the reactor core has begun to meltdown.

My mom told me after chernobyl they couldnt eat Irish meat from cows and sheep in Ireland 1000's of miles away from chernobyl because the grass was contaminated from the rain weeks later

Whether the publication is valid or not, I am starting to see lots of articles saying the same thing.

Google: Fukishima Nuclear Meltdown

There are over 2000 articles for those search terms in Google News.

Here's a short video from NHK, the Japanese government broadcaster. It's in English and is providing some "calming" words on the situation.

Sure thats what the Prime minister requested of the people, to remain calm in the face of disaster.
