Well, there's 45 minutes of my life gone.
00:18: Worked for NSA in electronic warfare? NSA doesn't DO electronic warfare, unless you've got a really broad definition that includes support
measures like SIGINT. NSA is signals intelligence and crypto, not electronic attack or protection. And he didn't have "above top secret" clearance,
because there isn't any. Once you hit TS you get more or less stringent compartmentalization but there's not a "super duper TS". Even if you
figure in NATO mods (NSA doesn't do NATO), COSMIC is still a TS clearance.
00:26: "industrial automation" or SCADA is the bottom feeder of the EE world, below power systems design. You don't do "advanced electronics" in
industrial automation. Most SCADA is 8 or 16 bit stuff that uses ladder logic programming - sort of like non-structured BASIC
10:28: "there's no way it could blow up...powered down at the time" - actually if you accept that it was a hydrogen explosion, this is a reasonable
thing to happen. If the facility as a whole is filling up with hydrogen and it's collecting in any high structure, the offline reactor's containment
shed would fill and possibly detonate, blowing the flimsy tin roof to bits.
11:47: Subsonic explosions are what we call "heaving" or "breaching" charges, and you use them to destroy buildings, as opposed to high brisance
charges which are used to cut steel. If I was taking down a building, a subsonic explosion would be what I'd choose. FAE charges for destroying
buildings like SMAW/NE are by intent subsonic, and work better than C4, which is better for cutting or causing localized damage.
12:35: "...those white stacks, this hydrogen stack was installed after TMI"
They're normally closed. When the power fails inside the plant, the control system can't open them automatically, and the hydrogen is not vented.
2:48 "...the top ground acceleration measured during the earthquake was registered at MYG004 and was a seismic intensity of 6.67, which means that
there was no 9.0"
My god, what an idiot. Ok. He's saying that onshore in Japan, the highest reading was 6.67 Richter. No duh, sherlock. Again, this is either an
attempt at a magic trick where he spits some numbers at you to confuse you, or he's a fool. The seismic intensity of ANY earthquake diminishes as you
move away from the epicenter. Otherwise, any earthquake anywhere on the globe would be the same everywhere on the globe. You know that's not true,
right? So the farther you move from the center of the quake, the less the intensity. The quake took place beneath the ocean floor to the east, 24
miles away, where it WAS a 9.0. You would not EXPECT the seismic intensity to be the same at MYG004 as at the epicenter. If it was, it would be the
most screwy earthquake ever in history. I bet it's even less on the west coast of Japan! WOW!
This is his proof? That the seismic readings diminish as you move away from the epicenter?
a nice site that has maps of the peak seismic activity, along with some explanations
of other data. WOW! The peak seismic activity DOES diminish as you move away from the epicenter! That must mean it was satellite death beams! Oh,
wait, that's normal.
Most of the rest of the second video shows that he doesn't understand the various modes of shock propagation. It's actually tricky to correlate all
the numbers and derive the epicenter location and force at the epicenter, because what shows up at the various seismological stations is data
conflating surface waves, shear waves, p waves and whatnot. There's a whole branch of science involved in picking this stuff to bits and
understanding what happened.
03:41 "before the tsunami, there's no damage in the photos" Oh, well, then, I would expect that an earthquake prone area wouldn't build the
buildings to sort of withstand that sort of thing as much as possible. Must be a conspiracy! This proves that a tsunami hitting them should also cause
03:08 various discussion of why a 9.0 earthquake should cause more damage on land - again, it didn't happen on land, and as he shows from MYG004, the
peak seismic intensity on land was 6.67, which is not that big.
03:19 "this area of Japan has no history of really bad seismic activity" Actually, the entire Ring of Fire area is a fault zone. This statement is
like saying "my uncle had no history of getting hit by a car, until it happened, so it must be a conspiracy".
05:54 "if you pull even 0.8G in an earthquake, you're going to have widespread devastation" Untrue. What you have to look at is the product of
acceleration and time. We g-test systems all the time for military equipment - the test device looks like the world's largest subwoofer - and can
easily get "g forces" into hundreds of not thousands of g's, as long as they only last for a number of milliseconds. This is called "shock", and
while rated in g's, is different from "acceleration", which is what you get when you apply the force for a substantial period of time. A flight
data recorder might withstand 1500G of shock, but only a few dozen G of acceleration.
By the same token, if his 0.8G was only for a few milliseconds, then you really wouldn't expect to see total devastation from it. As you didn't.
This guy either doesn't know it or is again lying to you.
10:39 "it's kind of hard to have a nuclear explosion when it's not running"
Idiot. There WERE no nuclear explosions, it was a hydrogen explosion. When your entire complex is full of hydrogen, it'll go where it wants and blow
up there. It's not like it hovers around where it was produced.
11:12 "the nuclear firing device (?what) looks exactly like the camera" Ah, jeez, the guy's going to try to explain this as a nuclear weapon?
11:48 picture "bears a striking similarity to a nuclear blast" ANY ground level explosion that produces a ball of hot gases can create a mushroom
cloud. Most particularly, a gas flash explosion (like a hydrogen explosion) tends to produce mushroom clouds. Look at film from any FAE.
11:48 area - Gun-type weapons (no one makes these anymore), even the very first one, are nowhere NEAR this height or diameter. This is beyond
spurious. "oo, look, something that's cylindrical, it PROVES IT'S A NUKE!" Geez. Israel is WAY past gun bombs. Hell, even Pakistan is.
Let's recap - the guy claims to have worked in electronic warfare at NSA (a lie), have "above top secret" clearance (a lie), to be an industrial
automation specialist (a scada guy - the lowest form of engineering life), doesn't understand explosives, doesn't understand or is lying to you
about ground acceleration, doesn't understand shock from acceleration even though they're both in g's, and is trying to say it was a nuke, although
the damage doesn't resemble that of that sort of explosion and no one makes that sort of weapon, and hasn't for years.
What a waste of time. He doesn't even meet a minimum standard of plausibility, he's sort of like that daffy Judy Wood and her dustifying satellite
