I was checking RSOE EDIS and discovered something peculiar.



At first I laughed and thought, how hilarious! but now I think during the recent nuclear events happening everywhere, I am pretty sure the animals have finally had enough are starting to protest.

It is about time!

A massive radioactive jellyfish is no laughing matter.

Jellyfish huh?

I wonder if they got caught is some water intake pipe or something like that. Unique though!

See, they start the invasion by taking out utilities like nuclear generators.

And then...

It's legitimate. Seems as though the jellyfish were getting to close to the plants seawater intake!

yes it is seems they have manged to shut off the water hisz.rsoe.hu... from the link

Masses of jellyfish entering the Torness nuclear power plant's cooling water inflow area led EDF Energy to shut both units there manually on Tuesday, the company said.
wow must be some strong jelly fish

"This is temporary and the reactors will be restarted once the jellyfish situation subsides,"
when they decide to leave that is

a spokeswoman for EDF Energy said. The two 640-megawatt (MW) units in Scotland went off line on Tuesday afternoon, National Grid data showed. The presence of jellyfish, seaweed and other marine life is not uncommon at nuclear power plants, EDF Energy said.
nice to have help

Two weeks ago, an Atlantic Grey Seal was rescued from EDF Energy's Hinkley Point nuclear power station in Somerset after it got trapped in the inflow area chasing fish. The plant's operations were not affected.
it seems that we have done did it p!$$ed off mother nature and now shes getting even.

That makes sense.
I imagine it's a hard problem to deal with.

Jellyfish have sworn revenge for there brothers in the Gulf.
Damn you BP.

You could always get some peanut-butter and you know...

make some peanut-butter and jellyfish sandwiches.

...no?

Of all the creatures to rebel.... Pissed off radioactive jellyfish sends shivers down my spines. Nice find OP.

Neither are nuclear missiles that turn into a falling sperm whale and a bowl of petunias!

Also when did Scotland turn into a county or state? Braveheart won't like that!

Maybe this has something to do with the immortal jellyfish that scientists have recently discovered? Nuclear radiation grants immortality! Or not.

Will they reroute the jelly fish out back
into the ocean which will in turn contaminate
the water? WTH is going on with all the
nuclear plant problems lately?

The seawater is not radioactive. Nor will the jellyfish be.
It is cycled through a heat exchanger separate from the reactor.

It's a very common thing for aquatic creatures and even flora to clog up cooling water systems in power stations of all kinds so this is only newsworthy due it being a nuclear station that was affected and plant shutdowns or reduced ratings are not unusual when there's sufficient loss of cooling system efficiency. Hydro plant in this state is regularly affected by migrating eels, juvenile 'glass' eels which are called Elvers, and they get into tight places in sufficient numbers to cause transformer, bearing and stator overheating resulting in loss of capacity or even machine trips. It's an ongoing problem.

Flora such as algae in the cooling system is a similar problem and it's dealt with by regular flushing with a strong hypochlorite solution to prevent the cooling system developing clogged arteries.

Ann Coulter might agree with you on that.

She seems to think radiation is good for you!

Remember "Wichita Lineman"?


I am a follower of Cthulhu
and I lead a mad horde,
searching everywhere for our vanished overlord...
though we need him more than want him,
still we'll have him for all time,
when the city of R'lyeh
ascends from the sliiiiiime!

The immortal jellyfish is a very concerning situation. Looks like man has finally done it with all this pollution and the ocean now has cancer. Cancer is defined when some cells refuse to die which causes the organism imbalance, discomfort and death. Now that we have a species that refuses to die the repercussions are evident. Time will tell if it is benign or malignant, but with one case now on the books it is only a matter of time.

The same thing just happened in Japan, maybe it is jellyfish season.



Jellyfish sounded the retreat on Friday after blocking an all-important seawater cooling pipe at a western Japanese nuclear power plant, the plant operator said. | June 24, 2011

The article mentioned that the same thing happened in 1997, so maybe it is not that unusual, but it does not sound good either.
