Earthquake not Tsunami damaged the Fukushima power plants
Data from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant indicates that the March 11 earthquake--not the tsunami--damaged piping for the emergency core cooling system at the No. 3 reactor, leading to a meltdown, experts said.
Data released on May 24 by TEPCO points to the possibility of quake damage to the high-pressure coolant injection system
Keiji Miyazaki, professor emeritus of nuclear reactor engineering at Osaka University, said the piping at the reactor was probably ruptured before the waves hit the plant.
"Since the piping of a high-pressure coolant injection system is inside the reactor building, "it unlikely to be damaged in tsunami," he said.
Therefore it would have had to been damaged by the earthquake.
Now, let's look at the containment vessels-
The containment vessels of the Nos. 1 to 3 reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant were probably damaged within 24 hours of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
And TEPCO knew that from the start!
"the utility said it carried out minute calculations on internal pressure and other measurements in the nuclear reactors after the earthquake."
After the Earthquake, before the tsunami
TEPCO said it found that an isolation condenser, a type of emergency cooling device, did not work properly at the No. 1 reactor. This caused the core meltdown to progress until it damaged the bottom of the pressure vessel about 15 hours after the earthquake.Additional reading here on the damaged containment units
Rehash: 15 hours after the earthquake you have core meltdowns and breaches of the pressure vessels. As if that isn't bad enough, there are also melted fuel rods in 3 reactors. Recall that the amount of toxins, poisons, mutators.. call them whatever you like in those fuel rods is worse then the cores. Imagine damage on a global scale from the combinations of core and fuel rod meltdowns?
Can we say cancer increases? Genetic mutations?
This is not Chernobyl, it is worse, a lot worse.
Recall the lying main stream media at the beginning, when attention was focused on Japan?
TEPCO has confirmed nuclear rod meltdowns, melted fuel rods in 3 reactors
Three reactors at Japan’s stricken power plant have melted fuel rods and it may take longer than nine months to gain control at the site.
About 55 percent of the radioactive fuel rods in the Unit 1 reactor at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant melted after a March 11 earthquake and tsunami, Ostendorff said. About 30 percent of the rods in unit 2 and 35 percent of the fuel in reactor 3 also melted.
If you had been reading along here since this nuclear holocaust began you already know this.
If that isn't enough bad news reaffirmed for you, there is still more!
More radioactive water has leaked, likely straight into the Ocean.
There are new fears Thursday that radioactive water may be leaking from Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant after a drop in water level was discovered at a wastewater disposal building.
Tokyo Electric Power Co., the operator of the plant, said the latest leak was discovered amid efforts to transfer highly contaminated water from reactors two and three to an improvised storage facility.
The company said the water level in the facility dropped nearly two inches in just 20 hours, meaning nearly 60 tons of water may have leaked from the facility.
What will become of this radioactive mess?
Well the brilliant masters of industry who brought this disaster to bear on the world have an idea that is as stupid as building those reactors in the first place!
A nuclear graveyard at Fukushima, right on the coast, of the Pacific Ocean.
In an earthquake/tsunami prone area of the World! Sheer Genius, right?
Atomic energy specialists are discussing a plan to make the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant a storage site for radioactive waste from the crippled station run by
Tokyo Electric Power Co.
Since it was Atomic energy "specialists," no doubt using their "intelligence" and education, that played a role in the construction of the Fukushima facility in a seismically active area.....
The idea to make a nuclear graveyard out of this same area is: Insane? Irrational? Delusional?
I am at a loss for just the right word.
One more thing.
Mother's breast milk has been testing positive for radioactive substances.
5 women out of 41 tested. One from Tokyo
This testing was done 1 month after the disaster began.
Well now it is over two months!
