Why is spent fuel millions of times more radioactive than new fuel? I would have expected the absolute opposite. Radiation is energy that dissipates over time? Sure it might take thousands/millions of years to totally decay, BUT how is what you are saying possible?
Reactor 4 building is heavily damaged and is now leaning over. Experts fear that if another moderate Earthquake occurs (which is likely), the building "could" collapse and the spend fuel would be exposed to the environment. The result would be a catastrophic fire and release of radiation (mostly cesium 137) into the environment, and the other spent fuel on site, espeically at the common storage pool, would also ignite and expel massive radiation. Potentially 85 times the amount released at Chernobyl.
And after 1 year of fighting reactor 4 they have zero contigency plans for all those spent fuel rods in a collapsing building? What exactly were the experts thinking about, if not the most important things?
I don't think anyone outside the great pyramid of deception has been sleeping good the last 3 years. The ptb have taken stupidity to astronomical levels and people should not only fear about their death, but also the destruction of the entire ecosystem.
