Good to hear your thoughts on this Proto.
Im going to sit back now to see what extra knowledge you can provide for us all.
I wish I had more to share on this issue since it's such an important one, but the New York Times is reporting that these releases of Radioactive
Steam might go on for months.
WASHINGTON — As the scale of Japan’s nuclear crisis begins to come to light, experts in Japan and the United States say the country is now
facing a cascade of accumulating problems that suggest that radioactive releases of steam from the crippled plants could go on for weeks or even
With the actual cores flooded with sea water, and the normal cooling equipment not working, not only is there no logistical let alone safe way to get
people into the cores, but it's pretty clear that if they stopped pumping the sea water in, that they would experience a total melt down in short
The fact that they are saying weeks and months pretty much displays presently they don't have any clue on how to solve the problem.
Shades of the BP Disaster this summer where yet another powerful Energy Company this time Japan's Nuclear Power Utility now has to invent how to
solve it's own problems it created itself as it goes along.
Over 150,000 people have been evacuated from the area so far, so clearly it's not a 'safe' situation, or one they are going to get under control
Potential for it to get worse before it gets better appear to be high sadly.
Further no one is asking the question of what is being done with the sea water being pumped back out.
Presumably as it super heats it has to be pumped out in a cycle of adding more fresh cool sea water, and more boron to it.
So what's happening to all the radiated and boron treated seawater?
Are we to believe in a disaster zone with roads smashed and the plant smashed that they are safely storing it on sight, or trucking it safely to some
So as usual the press is asking nothing but a lot of soft ball questions and taking a lot of pat and canned answers to dessiminate as gospel while the
circumstantial evidence certainly indicates a far more grave situation.
Leaving the rest of us as usual to just pretty much hope for the best, and having to accept what ever outcome and what ever they tell us is the
'best' since we have no alternatives on either score.
The truth is that this is another sad byproduct of the Western Powers controlling and price fixing oil at the source. Both coal and oil are plentiful
and could be powering Japan but because of the Oil Cartels manipulation it makes nuclear energy more attractive.
One day people are going to learn you get what you pay for, but more importantly often you are going to have to pay for what you got.
