I did not use this title to 'Glorify" anything. It was meant that this was the beginning of a major " Domino Effect" series of catastrophic events that would engulf not only the Cooper Nuclear Plant potentially, but disasters from North Dakota to the Gulf of the Mississippi. There are numerous nuclear plants along this waterway and many are in trouble. There are many cities in trouble and farms destroyed. There are toxic waste and Superfund sites along this water way that can be added in the mix too.

I'm really sorry that the title came off that way to you. This whole thing makes me sick to see just as it does you. This is very serious and I pray for the safety of everyone affected by the disasters. Stay Safe


No worries. Folks who have followed this thread with sincerity understand your intent and your concern for the flood victims throughout the region.

I appreciate your concern too. Did you see the thread about the earthquake in Alaska right on the heels of this last night too? So much was happening all at one time it seemed. ATS was on fire! (not really, but people posting like mad) There was panic about tsunamis up there all the way to California and over to Japan at the time too. Anyway, I'm glad that we are on the same page about all of this. I sure hope things settle down! Take Care


This post is actually for Diamond Eyes and you too.

Read it and look.... I think TPTB have a very sick sense of humor...as all of this will culminate right here at the July 4th week vacation season. July 4th...how ironic...


ETA- the video has scenes from the old Terminator movie and nuclear testing which may disturb some people in light of recent and likely future world events. Sorry if you started watching and got upset by it not having expected such.




What the hell is going on in this darkened world 'eh? Godspeed people. Grab a goldfish, Stop The Fear & Conquer the Noosphere... Read that thread, read the associated threads, and take back the power.

This old world is a NOETIC CO-CREATION, but we will have assistance when the Time comes, to deal with those who refuse to obey Natural Law ('the law of conscience', according to Narnia Chronicles author CS Lewis)

TPTB will get their comeuppance.

I did see a thread about it, but I never got to it, b/c I got caught up in what was being shared in this thread. I do so hope things begin to settle down. So many lives being affected right now, on so many fronts.

Love the way you've been so quick to bombard the thread, then you just happen to have all the right resources within a couple of posts of any attack on your 'perspective'.

Shhhhhh .... I'll
be back in a minute with more thoughts regarding the nuclear industry and its need to save face.

Roll over for the PTB and have your belly scratched 'eh? There's a good means to an end...
at both those sets of crazy humanity acting in their own selfish interests...

I'm not a fan of Nuke Power Plants. I would support study and improvement of the technology (in remote areas). I personally can't imagine changing my mind until we find a way to safely deal with the waste product. Show me a slingshot that will propel that crap into the sun and I would reconsider.

I also believe my Government lies when convenient.

Having made those disclaimers, I stand with those who are saying "Nothing to worry about here".

Calhoun is offline. No comparison can be made to Fukushima.
Brownville seems to be online (last report I've seen), BUT...if the operators even susect the plant may indeed flood, believe me it will be shut down. They may already be doing so. So doubtful the "F" (Fukushima) word can be used here either.

With both plants offline, there are two concerns: Cooling the spent fuel stored onsite and cooling the reactor housing. The redundancy of the systems that provide these functions is so extreme that I would expect aliens to serve me breakfast tomorrow morning than all of them to fail.

IF either plant were to be completely submerged there would be cause for concern...not "F" level concern though.
Fukushima had six reactors: three were online and three offline. The three online completely melted down...because they were online and couldn't be cooled. The three offline did NOT meltdown. I think I recall reading somewhere one is actually back in operation.

I know this flooding is a tragedy. These plants are not. It's prudent to keep an eye on the weather and the basin drainage, too soon to worry about worst case scenarios for the plants.

This thread is a joke...the OP shouldn't quit his day job to become a real reporter. It's typical of the overblown hype that permeates throughout the ATS website these days.

If you believe that to be the case, why do you come to this website? Shoo! Shoo! You're wasting perfectly good space here! Leave it for someone with productive information regarding the flood! Even if there is no danger at the nuclear plants, we'd like to stay updated on the flood itself here on this thread!

I doubt it, Japan has so little space that the idea of building a wind farm there is laughable, hell, being buried when you die is an expensive luxury there due to the amount of space taken up.

Time will tell if this thread turns out to be a joke or not. I don't see millions of peoples lives being turned upside down as a joke. Sorry. This may be funny and a joke to you , but for the people who are losing their homes, farms, livelihoods and lives there is nothing funny about it.

Since there is nothing for you to do here but trash the thread, maybe you should move on.

Many of us have real concerns about what is happening and wish to have a venue to share thoughts and information.
Have a nice day!

I think maybe you are forgetting the vast amounts of crops in the path of all that water.
Tunnel vision much?
It will devastate thousands of people who's homes can't be saved as well.
Don't you guys eat over there?


I never said the flooding wouldn't hurt anyone, the flooding is the real issue here, people are trying to make it seem like it's the nuclear power plants that are the problem. All I'm trying to say is that everything at the plants is under control and there are more important things to worry about here.

And that argument would make sense...

...if you included the amounts of people dying from cancer because of nuclear power, which is relatively unmeasurable.


As I've said thousands of times and provided thousands of links to back up my claim, living next to a nuclear power plant does not expose you to enough radiation to cause cancer. How many times do I have to say this to get it through you people's thick skulls?


Try to tell me that dumping toxic waste into waterways and exploding it into the atmosphere isn't giving anyone long-term diseases or destructing wildlife. I'll laugh at you and walk away from the ignorant ball of crap that is your head; accepting information that was fabricated to defend nuclear power as the only way to look at this. You can't combat a practice whose disadvantages are long-term effects to the population with information about immediate deaths from other sources of power that are mostly employees who choose to be in that caliber of danger for a standard paycheck.


Since when is toxic waste dumped into waterways and exploded into the atmosphere? Most nuclear waste is recyclable to create more energy, and what isn't recyclable is safely contained and stored where it can't hurt anyone. The long term effects of fossil fuels are infinitely worse than anything nuclear could do, with all the pollutants being pumped into the air every day and numerous oil spills.


Can you please go to Japan and tell everyone how safe nuclear power is and start pushing it? I mean, it's not that I would like to see you get killed, really, I just thought the stillbirthed children, earless rabbits and 6-eyed fish would love to 'hear' about it.


Radiation does not make six eyed fish, stop being ignorant. The real world is not the same as The Simpsons.

Jokes on you, laughable.

That land that they have so precious little of lost a chunk that is now uninhabitable. Care to re-think that?

If you've provided thousands of links....

I don't think you have done it on this website alone.

I am going to heed a previous posters words and drop this subject on this thread, it is only right.

Most of the land would have been uninhabitable anyways; they got hit with an earthquake, a tsunami, and then another earthquake. Think post-Katrina New Orleans times ten.

Sorry, its just the "here we go" bit at the end...seemed that way to me at first. Ive read through more and can see you didnt meen it that way..my bad.

You see alot of these threads on here though...with titles that seem to be excited about all the doom n gloom surrounding us.

The sooner we discover the truth the better...flee this planet then and leave all this nuclear and pollution behind

Anything not related to politics that is, they usually get most of the facts right when it doesn't affect anybody's election chances.
