But those cyrillic letters spell "Polin", which doesn't sound much like Chernobyl. Unless one is Russian and the Other is Ukranian, but given that the two languages are largely mutually intelligible, I'd have thought the words would have been quite similar.

Am I also correct in thinking that the old English worm/wyrm meant something like "snake" or "serpent"?

On the other hand Pol-/-byl....

Sorry if I jumped the gun there, I just got out of bed!

10 MILLION times?

And still no warnings, still no line beyond "nothing to be concerned about." Still no heads up to anyone who could clearly be affected. Still spraying water on it. As someone said in another thread, why in the [snip] have they not begun capping procedures? Even with something this serious and potentially devastating, money is what it comes down to. Don't want to lose the assets, even if these assets will cause sickness and death for untold innocents. Even if it is clear now that mitigation is a lost cause. Bury it already!

I would have thought that just spraying water on it would be dangerous, since the water could pick up some of the contaminants and then run off elsewhere or evaporate into the air that people have to breathe in.

That appears to be exactly what is happening. I think Plan B, however extreme that may be, should have been started already. Current efforts are obviously ineffective.

Do they have a plan B?

As far fetched as it might be, do you think that it would ever be feasible to put nuclear waste into very strong containers and send it into space, preferably on a direct trajectory toward the sun where it should completely disintegrate on approach, amidst a whole load of other radioactive outpourings?

Or am I overlooking too many obstacles?

The danger with just burying it is that in 6000 years there may be no current written language or symbology that is still comprehendable, and they may end up getting a bit to curious about what's in that ancient bunker...

You raise a good point. There probably is no Plan B. That may explain why they are still ****ing around spraying water.

I don't know about sending it in to space, but you made me laugh thinking about people in the future being like "I wonder what's in here?" and opening up the bunker of doom.

Nooooo don't be silly, that'd cost far too much. We'd rather spend our valuable limited money on war with Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. We'd rather spend it on flying government people to meetings around the world, spend it on bringing 5,000 extra police into London.

Send it into space hehe.

That was sarcastic but I think it's true.

They may not be primitive. I just meant that they may not understand any language or symbols in use in 2011.

On the other hand you do raise a slightly humorous possibility I hadn't considered, so well done

For all I know, which may not be much, you might be right. Just something I always wondered.

Well, the future does not seem to look any brighter... and the light in the tunnel appears to be turned off.. I really hope they find a way of circumventing this disaster.

What I found slightly curious was when the Sky news in the UK interviewed one specialist who worked on the Windscale Fire (late 50s nuclear disaster) he kept trying to crowbar into the interview that this was somehow NOT a nuclear meltdown but something different..

I have pondered long and hard on that point... if this is not a nuclear meltdown what is it? and by extension what are the real implications.. I've tried to find the interview but it is not online and I only saw it the once..

You're right, so I removed the "primitive." There's humor to be found in it, but at the same time, you have to wonder what people in the future will think of us. Most likely they will regard us as absolute fools. I wouldn't blame them for taking such a position.

Me neither, but on the other hand we may also be optimistic with regards to long term developments that may hopefully render many of today's concerns obsolete. So long as we as a species are able to survive the short-term, that is.

Either way, I'm sure that people in 1000 years will look back upon us as a load of planks!

Unfortunately I had a horrible feeling the answer might be something like that. Is there nothing really sacred at all? Call me naive, as I probably am, but aren't there just a few things in the world that are so important that they ought to be placed "beyond money"? Ah well, maybe one day...

Hmmmm, in just my admittedly cursory search I found this.

Years ago Norway was asking the same question for their sea water. Norway

This was scary interesting

past nuclear weapons testing has left contamination that might one day even reach waters off the coast of North America.

in the Arctic
Besides testing, their could be problems in the Arctic Ocean from dumping nuclear waste (including from getting rid of nuclear powered subs).

God help humanity! We may be the species with the most intellect, but we're still pretty primitively dumbass.
Floating Nuclear Water Desalination

I'll be dropping off the face of the Earth in a decade or two. If younger people today don't get a handle on this nuclear crap, their future will be even bleaker than the one I have lived through.

it was on tv but ill see what i can do
nos.nl...
there u go

its dutch but it says it was a little mistake
the readings were wrong blablabla
japanese televion had already said a broken reactor was now almost certain becuase of the readings but oopsy they were wrong nothing to see here basicly
lets see how long it takes for cnn or sotehing to report
to clarify the link is from the leading msm tv network in the netherlands
