Workers at the Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant in Port Gibson, Miss., last Thursday released a large amount of radioactive tritium directly into the Mississippi River, according to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and experts are currently trying to sort out the situation. An investigation is currently underway to determine why the tritium was even present in standing water found in an abandoned unit of the plant, as well as how much of this dangerous nuclear byproduct ended up getting dumped into the river. Many also want to know why workers released the toxic tritium before conducting proper tests. Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...

The people in charge of doing this need thrown in jail. There needs to be a more strict process on handling terrible mistakes like this that are made.

Radiation is good for you, just like Flouride and Aspartame.


Want that extra few inches on your tackle? Sure, but not on my girlfriend!

Holy crap! We annexed Miss. to Japan?!?!

Seriously though, seems pretty interesting considering I heard there was flooding down there. (Don't remember the particulars, so no sources. Saw it around these boards though...)

Anyway, as I was saying:

"Hmmm, verrrry interestink!"

"Although concentrations of tritium exceeded EPA drinking water limits, the release should not represent a hazard to public health because of its dilution in the river," insisted Lara Uselding, public affairs officer at NRC Region IV, to reporters."

I find this interesting ...again exceeding the levels but not harmfull

That's ok they will just raise the safe limits.

I have to agree with you there.

I am no expert by a long shot but even I know nuclear waste is extremely toxic and dangerous and cannot be dumped just anywhere. These people would know this too so they will have done this knowingly.

Before jailing them, send them for a CT scan to have a look if they have a brain in there.

Great, in the last couple of weeks, we've had a nuclear plant in Georgia that went into SCRAM (emergency shutdown) because of a "blown breaker", and they didn't know why, causing it to stay shut down for several days (don't know if the problem has been "found" yet or not)...we've had a nuclear reactor in Alabama that was 15 minutes from meltdown, because it lost power (described as an unusual event)(during the tornado outbreak), and they could not get the back-up power working right away for "some" reason (some speculate maybe the Stuxnet virus might be involved)..........and now we have a "supposedly partially built - abandoned nuclear reactor in Mississippi releasing radioactive contamination for some unknown reason.........AND TO TOP IT OFF WE DON"T HAVE ANY RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION MONITORS IN THAT WHOLE REGION (according to Radiation Network)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone seeing a pattern here? Anyone out there that lives in that area have a geiger counter that can give us numbers, or hook up to the Radiation Network? Something seems very wrong, and we will be the last to know, if left up to the 'authorities"...

just a reminder from TPTB

that we are suppose to keep
our world population under
50 Million.

Isn't the Mississippi the river they just broke the Levee's on?

So let em get this straight, they release "Accidentally" radioactive waste in to a river, then break the leeve's on that river flooding all that premium farm land with radioactive waste?

Can you say the word Conspiracy?

We should determine the ID of the decision makers making these pronouncements and changing these limits. Then we should tie them up and force feed them massive quantities of these poisons.

Actually I believe it's more along the lines of 500,000,000.


But really this nuclear power plant stuff is really getting ridiculous. Why didnt they just build most of them underground or something? Or better yet not at all. Having electricity is not worth destroying my DNA.

Haha man, that would be funnny. Better yet we should make them stand on the beach right next to Fukushima plant until they fix it.

hey man, nice find.

Interesting you bring this up. Think it's connected to the intentional levee breach at birds point? I believe 120,000 acres of farmland were covered with water fromt he mississippi.

Peace

What has this thread got to do with Japan? Do I have to start fishing through unrelated posts now?

@Mods: please move this somewhere else! Japan is too serious to allow the dedicated forum to become contaminated with unrelated posts.

Think McFly, think!!! If you're going to tell me this ISN'T a serious problem, then you need to some more research on the catastrophic problems underlying ALL nuclear reactors. No, we may not be in the same situation as Japan right now, BUT we are only one heartbeat away from it. And tell me how many people you know have or are fighting cancer. And if you don't know that many, go visit a cancer center where they are. We could already be in a worse situation than we realize! No, not all cancer has the same cause, but how much of it is caused by things we're unaware of, things we're trying to bring to light here?

This thread is relevant because it is showing light on reactors and nuclear corruption here in the U.S. because of what is happening in Japan. A lot of our own reactors and controls are the same models that blew up in Fukushima. If showing people what is happening in Japan is going to happen here if we don't make changes NOW, while we finally have their attention, in an effort to try and prevent such a calamitous catastrophe, is unrelated to "the topic", then go back to your blissful world of "everything is fine" and leave the adults alone to do the real work, and quit trying to get in their way. They may actually save your life one day.

Mods- this thread IS extremely relevant, please don't move it!

You have the wrong idea. I'm not saying this is not extremely serious - it is very serious - but if we aren't careful this forum is going to end up crammed with every nuclear disaster that existed, and detract from the point of the forum: to focus on Japan and its effects, specifically.

I think it would be a good idea for ATS to create a Nuclear Meltdown forum or something similar where all non-Japan related topics can be put that relate to the nuclear industry more widely.

I like the BTTF reference.

Thanks

You have a good point. It would be a good idea to have a present Nuclear danger, problem, etc. type category. I was just thinking the Japan category was good right now because it had a lot of foot traffic because of the current situation. But a category where we could find instant access to U.S. Nuclear problems would be very helpful. Okay, hint hint mods.

"Japan Sends Aid to Alabama" - okay but what do we do with this post?........lol
