Yesterday I heard this story. I wasn’t sure if I should post it on the blog. It proved all the announcement of Tepco was wrong. but The nuclear worker is trustworthy. I slept on it.
Please read the post below as a story I heard from a Fukushima worker.
A story of a nuclear worker. Tepco was planning to start reactor 4 in the AM of 311.
(The nuclear fuel was in reactor.) Nuclear workers were told not to get close to reactor 4.
They found a crack on the pipe of reactor 4, so they cancelled to start it as scheduled.
It was hit by the earthquake on the same day. Soon after the earthquake hit it,
meltdown started. Because reactor 4 was stand-by, cooling system could not be started either.
About the storage place of contaminated water. I have seen the place reported on News.
It’s not the storage place of contaminated water. It’s somewhere else.The contaminated water
stocked at turbin building was already discharged to the sea months ago. The damage of reactor 4 is serious.
However, Tepco is planning to restart reactor 5, 6 and reactor 1~4 of daini. If it’s true,
(The nuclear worker is trustworthy.) In the container vessel of reactor 4, melted fuel is stocked,
but there is no technology developed to pick it up, It’s only the matter of time for it to have melt-out.
The longest time would be one year. If another earthquake hits it, it’s over. Technically speaking, if it goes melt-out, it would flow to the sea. Pacific ocean side of Japan and west side of America won’t be inhabitable anymore.

I don't care wether or not people are too scared to read this but this deserves more attention ATS!
how many nuclear scientists do you think frequent ATS? This is about how far the conversation can go, besides for stating we shouldnt use nuclear energy without the ability to clean it up.. We got in same situation with the BP spill.. All we can do is say this sux, be upset about, and try to get governments to make these oil and nuclear facilities prepare for accidents better. Flags are not going to save japan or the pacific or anything.. Besides, this is a blog and may or may no

Look at the response to this, and youve got your answers about how much ATSers really care. If the title was "Cop shoots dog!" or "Leftist Death Panels Coming to Abort Your Baby!" it would have 30 pages of replies in 12 hours.
But when Americans start dying in droves and the West is uninhabitable, ATSers will find a way to blame it on Obama, "liberals" and "socialists", I am sure of that.edit on 2-2-2012 by aching_knuckles because: (no reason given)

I've been noticing this trend as well.
Topics that matter get 10 flags and 5 replies and BS have 12 pages of replies within several hours, just like you said.
Maybe Fukushima hits to close to home for some.
It does for me as well.
I'd rather ignore it then adress it but that doesn't make the problem go away.
