The nightmare is still here.

*COUGH* Reactor 3 or 4 aside as those reactors have never been in cold shut down. Those of us following the story know it's not good. But I didn't realize the status of reactor 5 and 6.


According to Tepco, the coolant system is working properly, they are not injecting water like reactor 1 or 2.
However, the heating gauge showed 23.1 ℃ on 3/8 12:00 and it went up to be 27.5℃ on 3/9/2012 6:00. (↑ 4.4℃)


fukushima-diary.com...


The temperature of reactor 6 went up by 10℃ through only 6 hours.

3/10 6:00 27.6℃

3/10 12:00 36.7℃ (↑ 9.1℃)

There is no explanation from Tepco.

The pressure of container vessel has also increased from 3/9.

3/9 12:00 0.020 MPa g

3/10 6:00 0.023 MPa g (↑0.003 MPag)



There is a lot of spent fuel in reactors 5/6.

For a year now, I've regretted this topic. I don't think anyone knows the complications of what happened 3/11/11.

This makes no sense. They have a problem. I've tried to avoid this story, because it's the most depressing and outright hopeless one I've ever seen in my life. It's just that bad. However, I reached that point by researching it to death and Reactor 5 and 6 were NOT damaged. They've been the two examples that really prove how small a difference in elevation made for disaster vs. calamity.

Hopefully it's just a routine part failure or something they can get fixed and stable again. I really don't get why these are even fueled, let alone storing old fuel anyway. It's not like this site can EVER be used for anything again, and these were undamaged. Silly me....I'd thought they'd have been working to defuel these all along.

The TEPCO Follies just keep going and going and .....it's the energizer bunny. It really is....in a nightmare.

Wrabbit, this story literally makes me throw up in my mouth.

The garbage the Japanese and the world was fed is beyond treason. It's been posted before but needs to be posted again. THEY KNEW!

thechronicleherald.ca...


TOKYO — Just four hours after the tsunami swept into the Fukushima nuclear power plant, Japan’s leaders knew the damage was so severe the reactors could melt down, but they kept their knowledge secret for months. Five days into the crisis, then-Prime Minister Naoto Kan voiced his fears it could turn worse than Chornobyl.

Japan gov't knew meltdown risk early, records show

Caltech .pdf *******This is the direct link to the full 10MB file******

Yep, ugly.

But as far as the spent fuel, they don't rea;;y have any idea what to do with it, even here in America there are TONS of "used" fuel rods which no one has any idea what to do with.

And it's not just spent fuel that is dangerous:

DontTreadOnMe'a thread, Hanford, WA: Monunental Cleanup at Hanford Nuclear Waste Site Shows just one problem area we have here in the states.

Nuclear power is the gift that keeps on giving through waste products which are dangerous for time frames longer than human civilization has existed...

They knew within 24 hrs that they had 4 meltdowns.
They admitted to that at then end of August, 5 months later.
In this time of high unemployment, a person with foresight would do well to enter the medical field, because Japan and possibly the west coast of North America, (Can/Us) will need a lot of Health Care workers for the "sudden explosion of UNEXPLAINED rise " of respiratory, heart and Cancer ailments.

Go TEPCO.

Jaded, that's exactly right. Where do "we" put this stuff??? Nobody wants it near them. Let's bury it a mile below the surface. From the outside, nuclear energy sure seems safe but (to the posters) what is in your backyard???

YA FRICKING THINK?
Great post.

We can argue about all end of times bullcrap. 2012 Mayan calender which without Leap Year,( Which was changed AFTER the calender was written, so that's an old wives tale) would still not put us in harms way.
Old wives tale. Look it up. 2012 is already over by the old calender. Leap year changed it. Leap year was created well after Mayan calender. So we should already have been doomed.

The majorrity of the population is going to continue living, Rich or Poor. (6 billion of us)

Radiation poisoning and pollution through the Pacific Airstream and tides of water with the leftover crap willl creep up on us. www.npr.org...

This is a serious threat.

The damage and reported damage is an atrocity to mankind. We deserve better honest reporting as a species.

Oh well. As long as our governments tell us not to worry we're ok right?

This is a non political point of view. Just human intstinct.

I'm pretty sure something is amiss here, and we're being kept in the closet on this one.

Actually the mayan calander's end date of december 2012 has been adjusted for leap years.

niceguybob, you are correct. No-one here in this forum is trying to blow smoke anywhere except at the manipulators. TEPCO and the government of JAPAN should be ashamed of themselves.

I lived in Japan for around a decade. Japan has many reactor problems and lies and covers them all up. TEPCO is lying to us, plain and simple. They were lying in the beginning, they are lying now. The situation is far from under control and most of SE Japan is doomed.

I couldn't agree with you more. I find myself at a loss for words when I talk about this subject because I'm just not sure how to put this level of doom into words...when it's not theory, it's real and it's happening. We're absolutely in full agreement.

I'm not sure if it's still up or not as I honestly have tried to forget this story as much as events allow, but in the first several months there was a record posted by TEPCO themselves that showed in media statements, step by step what happened. What times things turned off, got vented and how the temps started warm, went to hot and then literally disappeared as gauges no longer functioned or existed. Estimates came to replace readings and I think that would mark the moment Earth's future changed in a way future centuries can actually measure and likely still be dealing with as a real world headache.


err... You know, 5 and 6 will still leave me baffled though. I just don't get why those are still in a state that could become a problem under any conditions. Umm.. They sure had time to shut THOSE one's down. I'd throw a laugh in there if the meaning of this wasn't so terminally tragic for so many people.

BP's oil blow out destroyed the Gulf of Mexico in some ways and Fukushima destroyed parts of the Western Pacific by the fuel blown right out into open water...and still there... What ocean do they put the whammy to next?

if you don't count an extra day in leap years then your calendar gets ahead of the actual day meaning, that the "doom date" would occur further down the calendar than expected not earlier silly.

Having said that scientists who came up with dec 21 2012 are not stupid and accounted for the extra days.

I don't know why I keep clicking on these Fukushima threads.. I just get more depressed.

Thanks for the correction. As usual, I took what I read some where else and didn't think it through.

I stand corrected. Thanks.

OK , Let's go get depressed anyway's over this distuubing thread. There's a nice pub up the street from me here in Tahoe.

I'll buy.

The FIRST round ya mooch. Don't go gettin greedy. Actually after 3 rounds I usually pick up the tab anyways, so be patient.

Especially if I start talking about ATS topics. Then I HAVE to buy.

@ Op.,
what do a increase of 4,4 Celsius means to a Reactor that had much higher Working Temperatures?


There is in my Opinion no Danger in it and i am not concerned about this!

In reactors that should be nothing more than cold, dead and properly secured husks of what USED to be reactors, it sure as heck got MY attention. Not so I'd lose sleep...but enough so I'm unable to resist regaining some basic ongoing awareness of what they're screwing up over there this time.

3 of the 4 lower ones are piles of radioactive death and dark doom. They will be for far more years than anyone here has to live...or our children...or their children. 5 and 6 were....WERE....the only reason to feel things COULD have been worse, but..hey..at least THAT didn't go wrong too, eh?

Yeah....lets hope, again, this is a temporary glitch where none should even be possible...and not a sign of that 'bright side crap' being another hope of the past tense in Fukushima. That place is a monument to lost hopes and death.

There is a whole ocean of BS to this ongoing saga.

I have this feeling that lots of truths will be coming out soon.

I agree with you in Theory but i can't see a danger in the minimal increased Temperature,
they are (should be) able to control and work with this Reactors
and the Water Supply is so minimal, i think your House is using more Water
than they use for the Cooling!

In my Opinion: the real Fear Factor is somewhere else but not in this Temperatures!

27.5℃ is cold for a reactor.
when it get up to around 100℃ then i will worry

100℃ is the boiling point of water at AP and this reactor has a long way to go to get there.
