Ignorance is bliss, isn't it? I bet this is important news to those in Nebraska, since it was declared to be in a state of emergency since June 18th. If this is non-news worthy to you, maybe you should find another thread!

earthquake.usgs.gov... this is a link to local earthquake data, did the levee fail or was it a very nice explosion? Thanks, to whoever, water not flooding Cooper and (dry maybe not) crypts for spent fuel at Calhoon not floating away yet.

A few people on here near to calm down and stop unnecessarily scaring people into thinking this is Chernobyl v.3. You cannot compare a levee breach to a earthquake/tsunami scenario as some are trying to do. While I agree that this is potentially dangerous, it is not the same situation that comes from an unexpected tsunami triggered by a 9.0 earthquake!

The power generated from a levee breach is far less than that of a tsunami. Also, unless we have total meatheads working at this plant, which I highly doubt, they will have seen this coming and by now should have some type of plan in place. Again, this is far different from an unexpected tsunami careening across the entire plant.


The Fukushima disaster wasn't caused by "the power of the tsunami." It was caused by the failure of the cooling system. Knocking out a cooling system doesn't require a tsunami. It could happen any number of ways. Submerging the entire plant in water would accomplish that very handily. Go try to turn on some electrical appliances underwater and see what happens ...

What plan would you suggest for the meatheads (yes, meatheads) who run these plants, when the plants become totally submerged? I understand a good bit about nuclear physics, and I don't have a lot of answers for that. If they were going to be pre-emptive, they would have already been pulling the fuel rods out. They haven't been doing that. Fuel rods aren't something you can just shut off. You can't turn off the fissile uranium and plutonium atoms. And lest we forget, the Fukushima rods were zirconium-clad, and as soon as they were exposed to air, they burned. Are these clad in zirconium as well? Probably.

Seems the best case scenario would be that the deluge of river water would ruin all the equipment, while also itself acting as a temporary cooling medium, albeit one that will probably take significant quantities of radioactive material downstream. And after it subsides, they will have a heck of a time cleaning up the mess that is made, if they even can. The worst case is that the rushing river water breaches containment, and we end up with another variation of Fukushima.

Everything is a-okay. Relax, baby. A lot of people here want to believe the world is ending, but its not. And its not going to. When was the last time ATS was right about anything? You will hear it on main stream if anything truly hits the fan, because they want the ratings. It's just the truth, baby. Just the truth. Use Occum's Razor if you need to. It's always more than likely that everything is just fine. So relax, baby, and breathe. Take a nap today and let it all just float away. Yeah.

I posted in another thread and i said, my sister saw fema headed that direction south from minnesota. A large semi, several cars, vans, and cargo pull behinds. That was 2 days ago. So, exspect to see FEMA in full swing there.

Yep! All of the environmentalists and tourists got to enjoy their fishing and bird watching up north at the expense of the rest of us! Another reason why the Corps of Engineers doesn't want this information leaked out to the MSM!

SHUT DOWN THE PLANT NOW, BEFORE IT GETS THERE.

Like I've said countless times, neither Chernobyl nor Fukushima were modern nuclear reactors and neither were up to safety standards. Both disasters could have been averted if proper safety measures had been taken.
What about Three Mile Island?

Was it too old? Was it up to safety standards?

You can always fall back on the last one on your list, every disaster might be averted if proper safety measures are taken. But there is always that pesky problem with...human error.



It is not just human error. We live in a world, in which the god with the most followers has a $ sign as his symbol. Managers with short term aims are only interested in the stock value of their corporation and their personal profit. I doubt that in any situation in which profits get privatized and losses get socialized optimal safety standards are on the corporate agenda.

- 9/11 being staged by the US government
- Fukushima being worse than the lying POS corporations and governments told us

Off the top of my head. Were you being sarcastic in your post? I hope so.

It is supposed to rain again all week here, i do not know about there , but we are flooded here in MN too. And we also have a nuke plant right next to the Mississippi in monticello, mn. and a coal plant just 2 or 3 miles away. I hope we fair thru this flooding also.

Geez, finding information in the information age is getting stupid. Can't ever find what you want without going through 1000000 spams.

Found that.

U.S. nuclear regulators say two Nebraska nuclear power plants have protected critical equipment from the rising waters of the Missouri River even though flooding has reached the grounds of one of them.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is confident those safeguards will prevent a disaster at either plant even though the Missouri is expected to remain flooded for several weeks, NRC spokesman Victor Dricks said Thursday.



"People are getting scared by a lot of the misinformation," Dricks said. "It's primarily coming from Internet bloggers rather than the mainstream media. None of them have bothered to check with us."

Happy?

Ahhh young grasshopper, you present corporate sponsored news as evidence to a non event. Unfortunately, you fail to realize that your information is filtered by nuclear sponsored corporatism.

You do the math.

At least temporarily, the levee breach was good for the power plant

I'm still confused why anybody is worried and making false claims about the plant. It's shut down and has been for 3 months. You need to learn more about the nuk industry and visit some different sites besides the fear mongering blogs
No, Cooper is NOT shut down. It is Ft. Calhoun that was shut down 3 months ago. Fort Calhoun is north of Brownville. Cooper is the plant that is so close to, and downstream of, the levee breech. As of last night, it was running full power ahead.

to be smart and safe, you think the corporates would shut it down in case something happened. but not them, just keep pumping out the all mighty dollar in the name of a possible meltdown. That is the truth of our SOCIETY, they all a bunch of greedy pigs the corporates. They care nothing for your future or your childrens future, hell they can move their kids with all the money they have. but you get put out of house and so do thousands of others in the name of IT'S OK, THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. I smell bs# on the table.

another fear monger on here i see the levee breach they are talking about is on the missouri side cooper sits on the nebraska side and south so the breach will divert some water away from the plant

JUST REMEMBER people, this thing that is about to happen could of been avoided if they just shut it down till the water drained off, but NO. Keep it running at all costs, unless, it melts down. They care nothing of you or i. All they care about is the smell of all that cash. SICK, SHUT IT DOWN NOW. Why have a fukeshima in the usa when we can avoid this catastrophy. but no buisness as usual. Just like BP, PIGS.
