ahh yes 37,, or as i like too call it,, 73
the Perfect #.



Does anyone remember the early days of the "Workers Holding Iron Rods" doing what looked like surveying, there were pictures.
Looks like the fuel pool was the cause of the little black holes in the Earth that day.

Unit 3 SFP Investigation Pics and Video

They wanted to keep the nuke algae from swirling around too much and increase visibility.

Wait a second....the caption states that these pics and videos are from September 13, 2012. A screw up in translation? Don't see them posted on Japanese site...

photo.tepco.co.jp...

Just see them posted on the English site:

There was still a lot of crumbled building preventing a good view of Unit 3's SFP from the air in 2012. So must be a typo.

On edit...rummaging around and found this:

And TEPCO pics and video of Unit 3 SFP debris removal September 24, 2012:

OK folks...why where these pics and videos re-posted on the English site when they go way back to 2012???

I have no idea what the numbers mean re temperatures, was hoping someone knowledgeable would post and help explain...
If they're 'recycling' pictures I can only guess it's because they don't want the current situation photographed which I would presume is because it's not 'pretty'... good eye!

Maybe this will help a little.

It takes a lot of energy to raise the temperature of water. The formula is "A Btu is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit".

Now consider that water is fairly heavy and there is a lot of it in one of those cooling pools. Lets say, for the sake of illustration, that there is 10,000 gallons of water in the pool. Water weighs about 8.3454 pounds per U.S. gallon. That means that there are 83,454 pounds of water in the pool. So at one BTU per degree F it would take 834,540 BTU to raise the temperature of the pool just 10 degrees F. Home water heaters generate about 35,000 BTU/HR to maintain the proper temperature. So, it would take over 20 home water heaters just to maintain the pool temp at 120 to 140 degrees F. Actually raising the temperature by any significant amount would take a whole bunch of energy and it would have to come from the heat generated by the fuel rods above and beyond the cooling capacity of the water.

The above is oversimplified since it is describing a more or less static system. However, the cooling pools have water flowing through them to remove the excess heat and that makes it a dynamic system and requires much more actual BTU to raise the temperature of the water in the pool at any one time.

sounds like a lot of contaminated water waiting to be dispersed to me.

Workers Thought They Were Turning on Air conditioners....

But turned on water pumps instead...whew...this is how the most dangerous nuke plant in the world is being operated.

Warm and Fuzzy...



TEPCO: Switch mix-up blamed for wastewater trouble

The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant says workers' selection of the wrong switches was the likely cause of highly contaminated water being sent to the wrong facilities last month.

Tokyo Electric Power Company investigated the incident.

On April 13th, it was discovered that 4 pumps that were supposed to be offline had sent about 200 tons of tainted water into the basement of a facility known as the Incineration Workshop Building, instead of into temporary storage.

TEPCO's investigation found that contaminated water had also flowed into another facility. Officials say the pumping appears to have started on March 20th.

They say workers are suspected of having turned on water pumps instead of air conditioners.

Officials say the switches for the pumps and air conditioners were on the same control board. The switches were reportedly numbered, but were not clearly identified.

The officials ruled out any leak of the wastewater from the facilities because no change was seen in the levels of radioactive substances in nearby well water.

The utility says it has taken preventive steps by labeling the switches at the plant.

Thanks for the temp rise explanation HappyKat!! It appears that the spent fuel in Unit 3 is still rather "hot" if the when the cooling system is stopped the temp rises that quickly. It appears to rise even faster than when the cooling system is turned off in Unit 4.

So many things that clearly show CRIMINAL and SOCIOLOGICAL destructive behaviors were clearly outlined on this ( and the previous ) thread have been proven to be true, time and time again, and admitted to by a 'government' and "industry" only reluctantly after they COULD NOT HIDE THE FACTS,

...though at the time it was called "fear mongering".....

to be doing real science and OBVIOUS critical observation of :

THE WORST NUCLEAR DISASTER IN THE HISTORY OF THE PLANET

Now consider Chernobyl...over two and a half decades after the "incident" ( which was handled a thousand times more professionally and effectively than fuku ) they STILL have to build a 1.6 BILLION dollar ( US ) containment .

will it work? and for how long?... at that price...and by the way whom payed it ? the nuker industry? NO they did not .....they rely on a system wherein the average person pays to be killed silently by the people they are killing .

So ... Fuku ...AT LEAST: three reactors melted down ...

the media feed focus is on the wastepool 'efforts at reactor 4', the interesting question is why

A ( exposed by the fuku fiasco ) super huge problem in the nuclear power industry is the inability to EVER COOL A NUCLEAR ROD MELT MASS WITHOUT LIBERATING MASSIVE AMOUNTS of radioactive ( uranium and plutonium ) particles ( in this case super small colloids ) into the cooling solution , and thus environment ( as the industry credo is , 'spread it around' as a solution)

This leads any thinking being to the questions:

why after 26 years does Russia have to spend 1.6 billion dollars to second cover Chernobyl?

IS the nuker industry after decades of billion dollar profits paying for this?

does anyone in their right mind think that fuku , being AT LEAST THREE AND MORE LIKELY FOUR TIMES WORSE THAN CHERNOBYL be any less than that in either effect or cost?

ANYONE whom has any intelligence or humanity should ask themselves the bottom line: and that is Whom , in the end , pays for this disaster? And how? And a decade and a half from now; WHOM is footing the 1.6 billion ( U.S. 2014 equivalent dollars) per (3) reactors to achieve a state of non-toxic release?

Pure hyperbole. But we can do some basic comparisons.

Fukushima Maximum level of radiation detected : 72,900 mSv/h
Chernobyl Maximum level of radiation detected : 300,000 mSv/h

Fukushima Direct fatalities from the accident : 2 crew members (gone to inspect the buildings immediately after the earthquake and before the tsunami) due to drowning.

Chernobyl Direct fatalities from the accident : 31 (64 confirmed deaths from radiation as of 2008, according to the UN)

You do realise that the 'incident' to which you refer was an experiment which went belly up? This was handled professionally in your opinion?

Fuku Evacuees Die...."Poor Health"

Folks don't just die of "poor health"...



More than 3,000 evacuees die since 3/11 disaster

An NHK survey has found that the number of evacuees who have died from poor health since the 2011 disaster has topped 3,000.

NHK asked local authorities about the deaths of evacuees as of the end of March. Most victims are believed to have died due to poor health brought on by the fatigue and stress of moving to temporary shelters.

The survey found that 3,076 people have died in 10 prefectures. The number rose by 388 from last year's figure.

More than a half of all the victims are from Fukushima Prefecture. The number of people who died from poor health was 88 more than those killed by the quake and tsunami.

Many of the Fukushima victims are from municipalities near the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Unfortunately NHK removed the image of the area surrounding Fuku which showed the highest number of deaths. The image showed that just north of the plant....a heck of a lot more deaths. I do commend NHK for being brazen enough to do the investigation. Asahi Shimbun Fuku reporting has become pitiful.

It could certainly be argued that substantial radiation exposure...along with extreme stress and duress causes 'poor health'... it sounds much 'nicer' to die of 'poor health' than the cause.

Did I miss it or has nobody posted the information about core material from Fukushima being detected in the atmosphere in Norway and Lithuania?

Wow.... core material in the atmosphere confirmed.... But I'm sure the plutonium etc. will have no adverse effects and people dying from 'poor health' along its trajectory will not be associated with it. *sarcasm* The only thing worse than this catastrophic nightmare are the masses who don't even think it's a problem in the first place.
