The dynamics of the ongoing disaster in Japan are more complex than the average Chicken Little can imagine. The blog brought by the OP is surely an
exaggeration. When he cries "thousands of tons of Plutonium" and stuff like that we need to take care...
Having said that I did some digging and I did find something in the ATS FUKU thread...
There is a video and link, then some mild chatter further down the page. I brought the YouTube, hope Aircooled doesn't mind. Of all the places I know
to dig for data on Fukushima ATS is the best. Guys like Aircooled and Nuckelchen are among the best diggers and presenters. This is Nuck's video. He
monitors cams over there full time and uploads stuff he finds to good music. Some of the videos are revealing if you have the patience and time. I
know that, thats why I looked at their stuff right away.
OP's blog says the events of the last few days might include fresh releases (explosions) of nasty. Something like that is evident in Chen's video
from a "few days ago". Since cam resolution and angle is poor, one has to look closely at the frames to see what is being presented at the 3:15
mark. Upper right and lower left view. A huge white "plume" of steam rises up from the center of the shot (in real time) and drifts slowly to the
left obscuring the crane tower in the shot. Is it fog? Is it Radfog?
Compared to other "steam plumes" this one is huge. I have seen many like this, some appear to be weather related. The camera is miles from the site
and max zoomed so the weather like fog banks and stuff have proven to be a factor in other videos. I'll try to find those to compare.
The thing about the plants there is that they are all in various stages of meltdown as a result of the quake and Tsunami. Since then they have all
been releasing radioactive contamination to the atmosphere on some level. These cores are still hot. Unlike a lava flow which cools off outside its
chamber, this stuff self generates its own heat. Tons of the molten metal are trapped below the bottom of the reactor cores and they are continuously
seeking avenues to flow deeper into the works and even bedrock in some cases. Each time a new crack is opened in a wall or pipe or underground
fracture, portions of the core spill into the channel and when confronting water, it puffs visible steam to the atmosphere. Theres no stopping this
until all the fissionable fuel is consumed in Tepco's "open air corium melt" project.
Reports of #4 plant on the verge of collapse is scary, but I don't think it likely. Problem is, its so hard to approach these concentrations of
"potential" calamity because they are so radioactively hot. Measurements are taken from a distance, downwind, in the ocean, etc. Thats how they are
extrapolating current status. And that is TEPCO's secret to be sure. But videos like the one captured here can be revealing if you know where to look
and "squint" with your eyes and your mind.
3:15 in, upper right ...
For comparison, here is another of Nucklechen's vids that shows another "steam" release earlier this year.
Aircooled's post in the Fuku thread and Enews link.
Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano confirmed on Saturday there has been an explosion and radiation leakage at Tokyo Electric Power Co's
(TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. "We are looking into the cause and the situation and we'll make that public when we have
"At present, we think 10 km evacuation is appropriate."
I was just coming over to tell folks not to get upset by this "contrail" report. It looks like he pasted a March 12th 2011 article with today's date.
Pretty nasty joke. www.reuters.com...
If there was "mass panic" at the airport in Japan, we would have heard something from Japan by now. Yes #4 is leaning, Yes they're steaming but
this....... contrail guy? It's still early but unless we hear more and real soon, I wouldn't sweat it.
edit on 22-10-2012 by Aircooled because:
Missed a detail
Ah well, humanity has to bite the bullet sometime. Playing around with nuclear reactors, nuclear weapons and nuclear material is playing russian
roulette, sooner or later the gun will go off it's just a numbers game.
Lol. yes you got me, but at the time, I was in "stop the panic from Contrail" mode. I hope you understand? At the time I was afraid of this Contrail
moron setting off suicides with his rant of 2 fuel pools exploding.
Now that the hoax is over, nobody is demanding to know what the fire was really about? It sure wasn't a cigarette fire, Hell I'm still not even sure
that alledged picture is of the area is where they say? It got swept under the rug with the hoax.
