Los Alamos nuclear waste almost on fire


rt.com

The New Mexico wildfire that has turned America’s heads towards the Los Alamos nuke plant is inching closer and closer to the laboratory, where the Associate Press says it is now a few miles from a dumpsite.

If the fire extends another 3.5 miles, it could overtake an area where 30,000 55-gallon drums of plutonium-contaminated waste are being stored above ground.

A spokesperson for Los Alamos previously denied that the drums existed, but the plant is now backtracking and admitting that the complex’s “Area G” is home to thousands of gallons of dangerous waste.

This is potentially the 3rd muclear power plant in America, that is in a risk zone. The immediate question we should all be asking is wether there are or are not any pressing danger in regards to the fire, which could threaten the nuclear power plant?

Though the lab says that the drums are on a paved area spare in greenery and certainly safe, a special team has been called in to test plutonium and uranium levels in the air as a precaution.

Watchdog group Concerned Citizens for Nuclear Safety said earlier this week that the drums were awaiting transport to a low-level radiation dump site elsewhere in the state, but Los Alamos County Fire Chief Douglas Tucker told Reuters on Tuesday that none of the drums would be moved.

RT loves making the USA look bad, and they aren't so concerned about this thing called "truth". Be very, very wary of anything you get from that source, and try to find something to corroborate it.

Let's hope they get the fires contained very soon.

RT does not state that there is an iminent danger. I suggest you read the full link... They simply state that the fires are closing in and the nuclear waste is suppose to be safe.

There's a heap of information on Area G on the 'net, including plenty of photos, and soil sampling results from at least the 1990's, plus concerns by watchdog groups.

it looks like the area stores low-medium level waste - it's not going to be good if it does "go up", but it seems unlikely to be a Chernobyl level event if it happened, and the local sherrif reckons it's safer where it is in a cleared area than shifting it anywhere else (from the OP story)

I'm gonna have to call disinfo on that...

A chance of burning plutonium waste is a HUGE deal.

Do you realize how many particles of this stuff it takes to kill you?!?!??

Is it just me or is this year turning to SH**?
Talk about Murphy's freaking law gone bad or Murphy's Law on crack! I can't decide.

So,....What, I should probably get my information from Fox, CNN, MSNBC?
I would rather stick to guessing about world events, i would have a better chance at being right.

LOL! That just about had me on the floor laughing. I've wondered the same thing lately. It seems this year will be the year of disasters. Some of them are natural. This year seems to have too many unnatural disasters (as well as potential ones) for my liking.

Michio Kaku in an interview on ABC mentioned the drums. This can't be good.

Hmm Whats the deal with Nuke Disasters this year?? Someone or something telling us that nuke disasters are GOING to happen or making damn sure we take note of our potentual nuclear demise? Japan didnt get much of a warning. Yet, since then, it seems that WE the US are. Very odd indeed.

I was going to make a thread about the possible conspiracy behind nuclear plant disasters in 2011.
Hint, Hint somebody... I don't want to piece together info or do the work necessary to make decent thread on that subject so I hope someone does it for me. lol

It's true, 20,000 55gallon drums of low level nuclear waste are sitting in the open. This is not a nuclear power plant.

It is a nuclear weapon R&D facility and they actually build nuclear weapons there.

I live in New Mexico, and well I am keeping my eye on this.

Yes. Those are the only approved news sources.
RT is from Russia and they have an agenda because the Russians have had it out for us since after WWII
Al Jazeera. Well, they's a bunch of Muslims and we all know what all Muslims think of our freedoms in the good ole' US of A.
All alternative news websites are run by tin-foil hat wearing lefty socialists who want to bring down our country with lies and crazy ideas.
From now on you should only believe what Fox, CNN, MSNBC, or the other MSM news outlets that are owned by the same 5 or 6 people tell you to believe.
Go back to your homes and turn on your TV's to await further instruction.
There is nothing to see here. Everything is all right.
You are getting very sleepy...

What plutonium is stored there??

Plutonium is, AFAIK, NEVER classed as low or medium level waste, as this place is designed to hold.

From wiki:


Low-level wastes include paper, rags, tools, clothing, filters, and other materials which contain small amounts of mostly short-lived radioactivity.


and


Intermediate-level waste (ILW) contains higher amounts of radioactivity and in some cases requires shielding. Intermediate-level wastes includes resins, chemical sludge and metal reactor nuclear fuel cladding, as well as contaminated materials from reactor decommissioning.
- it goes on to say that this level is usually solidified in bitumen or concrete, and stored in geological repositories.

ok folks... here's the short and sweet of it.

ONE molecule of plutonium within your system... ONE... will radiate energy for 24 thousand years. It eventually will burn holes right through you... you WILL most likely develop cancer

ONE rag saturated with plutonium will contain TRILLIONS of plutonium molecules...

out of 30,000 drums of 'yadda yadda' level waste, you really dont think ONE plutonium saturated rag didn't make it into one of those barrels?

talk about smoking 15 cartons of Camel non-filter cigarettes at once.... YIKES!

now... let's talk about tritium...

Archives, out!

Aww, you don't have to worry too much, --- the "all plutonium" containment building is concrete! .. All safe and sound. Well, except that anyone watching Brien Williams now knows where it is. Lots of stuff there, too!!

The plant in Omaha has "8 stories" of spent fuel rods in it's concrete building (Is it wet in there yet, 7 stories underground?), and more in concrete casks out back. It is looking fit to float off -- (it won't of course) ... but that is one heck of a chunk of water in the Missouri Watershed!

Fuku likely put Mox fuel rod pieces out in the Pacific when that reactor blew, and those particles are following the Japan current to the shores of the Northwest.

Were do you find data on the transpiration of hot particles from a cold and warm ocean? I have had my noggin in 3D-animation and not gotten very well educated on web searching.

A little nuclear leakage down the big muddy and into the Gulf / Atlantic ... just exacerbates survival issues left over from Co-wrex-it. It will just migrate over to the western shores of the EU.

Fuel rods can be neutralized with browns gas .. [HHO torch], but who is going to do all that work?
! .. Robots!!


Which brings up another unkind point: .. About this year's awful weather -- not all of which can be blamed on gravity troughs and Elenin.
... There is a new finding on You Tube -- about the Testing of Rockets for the Space Shuttle .. ("bring your umbrella because at the end of the test the cloud it makes will rain on you"), and some very odd weather patterns which do not look like "natural clouds"! ... Do they have these things on mobile platforms? ... Have they been doing rocket engine tests; and then fine tuning halarptech on the results? Is this the reason for the record snow pack, and the overburdened "earthen" dams in the Missouri Watershed?... Could it be?

The rat is looking much blacker as Soros and co. try to buy up prime farm land now underwater, and "corn harvests" will be 2.2 million acres short this year! (Farmers will be short on mortgage money, too.)

Here are the videos I just found .. I let you decide for yourself.

Recommended two:
Recommended three:


Learn to eat so as to protect yourself from radiation!!

This is critical and everyone needs to know, and grocery stores should have check out Geiger Counters next year, which you can borrow to pick out your produce, and your bread and milk! (.. not kidding!) Maybe they could be at the check out where you unload your stuff?

If Ele leaves us with any infrastructure .. we may still have to contend with radiation from any number of sources, and prepared is so much better than being left flat footed!!

Could one of the mods who knows their way around the web put up a thread on how to eat to protect oneself from hot particles .. and what to use in your garden as well?

If no-one can understand this is part of the plan, then you're all doomed.

You see, Fukushima hasn't worked quick enough, but they planned for that, so bring on the floods that swamp a nuclear plant (dont forget that they probably have that Stuxnet weakness too) so things, just like Fukushima will start going wrong when they just shouldn't be, and Fires to Nuclear Waste, and facilities with yet even more compromisable electronics.

Why do you think the Southern hemisphere isn't suffering any sort of Nuclear disaster?

Do the Math

World Population...6.92 billion
Northern/Southern hemisphere split: 90/10
=
6.228 billion in Nothern Hemisphere and
0.692 Billion OR 692 Million in the Southern Hemisphere

Now, lets kill the Northern hemisphere, or majority of = 6.90 Billion

The resulting world population, not including death from war, malnutrition disease and whatnot =

694 Million

What was that magical number again that the NWO/Illuminati want?

500 Million.

If you weren't sure, Google the Georgia Guidestones. I have to say, us humans must enjoy having it rubbed in our faces.

Chemtrails probably just help weather manipulation, and maybe the silver iodide can possibly make you sick but not always. They probably just behave like contrails too....have you all ever considered it.

Either way, you all need to open your eyes because the ones who are doing this will be in safety, you've either gotta go south of the equator which would mean one of the largest mass migrations of people EVER or you gotta all invade the underground bunkers...you have the damn weapons and are nearly the only civilisation in the world capable of amassing such a peoples army. Thats why theyre scared, and taking your rights away and only then can they amass against you. Sun Tzu's Art of War. Read it. Quickly.
