FCC Press Conference Video: Fukushima #2 fuel rods are exposed


www.ustream.tv

FCC Live Recording of Press Conference, scientist recieves new information mid-conference that fuel rods are exposed in one of the plants.
(visit the link for the full news article)

Please watch the video though, its actually terrifying, these scientists have some balls - hell they even call out the so called 'commentators' in the MSM.

BEGIN PARAPHRASE (Courtesy of Rey Rogers from GLP)

The video is very long and he has paraphrased it very well below:-

----------------------------------

[4:29] explosion at #3 similar to #1 but more severe.

[6:45] Unit #1: extra(?) rods (fuel) were stored in the upper exploded portion: gone now.

[8:55] After such an explosion, only a 24hr monitoring can tell if the inner vessel is breached by the huge explosion. [..] Up to 0.5 percent of the contents can be emitted and it would still be called "intact" (based on venting radioactive steam). If the steam vent works, then < 0.5 percent would be emitted in a 24hr period, keeping us under critical pressure. At this time, according to sources, pressure being maintained through gas venting.

[11:47] This sounds nice and safe, but in fact: pressure reading and volume reading are two different things [NOTE HERE IS HIS FIRST HINT OF DECPETION/LIES FROM OFFICIAL SECTORS] We need to know how much of the volume has decreased, not just the pressure. It is only when you have that figure, that you know how much material has been emitted to the atmosphere.

[14:20] In other words, in the vessel, pressure is rising and may explode.

[16:00] We did see a hydrogen explosion, not a controlled release, rather, leakage from containment vessel is suspected, but the explosion occurred OUTSIDE the vessel not within the vessel which would be worse. [...] The design permits us to add nitrogen to cool. Unfortunately when you vent gas for pressure, you lose the nitrogen cooling. Also venting may allow oxygen to enter the containment vessel. This is hypothetical, but if you have hydrogen leave and oxygen enter, risk of containment vessel exploding increases. Not enough data at this time as to this.

[19:00] But I would like to ask, did anyone think Hydrogen explosion could occur in the containment building? [because] Hydrogen does explode. [HE IS HINTING THAT THE UNEXPECTED MAY HAPPEN AS IT HAS HAPPENED ALREADY]

[20:00] To cool, you need pumps, water and electricity. [...] These are all haphazard at this time, only partially available [...] if we can keep the rods submerged, then we can see this getting better. [...] But these ideas of sufficient water and pump-electricity are at this time, haphazard. Question: Is the cooling process happening in fact?
[24:00] These are the questions the press needs to ask [HE SAYS TO ASK THESE QUESTIONS].

[25:00] Cooling with seawater seems to have disrupted. Also the electricity systems may have been damaged. As a result, these difficulties are occurring in several plants. We are seeing multiple such-failures. [26:00] At some plants the generators have been able to start and are working. But in others, the generators have failed to start. In other words, there are multiple factors affecting the whole very very severe situation.

[27:00] Statements by the officials are that ample supplies of water have been secured so we are hoping the rods are submerged but there is question as to this. [28:00] the reason I am not being precise is that there is some question as to the monitors that check the water levels are actively working or if they are faulty. However the announcements are admitting this, the answer is that there are other ways being used to gauge the water level. According to these other parameters there is reason to say that the rods are immersed. I am not saying the situation is reversed or nearing closure. More correct would be to say we are in a very delicate situation.

So basically it is a confirmation of everything posted on ATS.

take your pick it is not good, i just heard that a 3rd one was in trouble, i will post the man page search.yahoo.com... and then this www.ksdk.com... and it seems that it is not over with all that there is this www.dailymail.co.uk...

It would be my confirmation to leave the island as soon as I could...

Or go as far south on the island as possible...

Oh!........Come on MSM let's see you talk your way out of this one you disingenuous bastards.
OK this has officially been marked, I'm now currently waiting for some tenured pseudo intellectual to
"set us straight" on any number of news interviews.

true but the wind you can not hide from. for if three go well it will make Chernobyl look small.

yes it does seem that trolls are seeking straws, what does a prude university professor of political science and nukes have? read this and tell me. www.purdueexponent.org... from the link "Purdue professor weighs in on partial nuclear meltdown in Japan" now lets see

A Purdue professor has received e-mails from his contemporaries in Japan asking for advice on what they should do next, if they should try and leave the country or not.

“Honestly, I myself feel anxious,” Professor Daniel Aldrich, professor in the department of political science, said.

Aldrich is fluent in Japanese and spent eight years in Japan studying nuclear power and, among other areas, natural relief. It’s for this expertise that his Japanese friends, Japanese engineers and national media outlets are all trying to get a hold of him.
should they not be asking a nuke professor?

If everything fails have we all had our chips then?

What is the worst case scenario? And what can we not look forward to?

I find it absolutely insane, that just getting water to the reactor to cool its components is problematic. One would have thought that the Japanese military would have contingencies for this sort of thing, and by that I mean well protected reserves of generator fuel (for powered pumps) and several hundred miles of largebore portable pumping equipment including pipes and actual pump mechs, available on demand from at least five different locations in every area which they might be required. Surely running a nuclear plant near the ring of fire is a mugs game without these thorough emergancy caches in place?

Why can't they get some portable generators to help with the problem? I would think that they would've already planned for this...

I found this link for radiation monitoring in Norway.
