Fukushima: The End of Mankind?

“Fukushima: The End of Mankind?”
By Dennis Cimino
“In the aftermath of the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan, it’s hard to fathom or describe the environmental damage to the Earth, because it eclipses all prior nuclear accidents by such a huge margin. In the four years now since the earthquake caused the breakage of critical reactor cooling apparatus and plumbing to the point where the plants were not able to sustain or maintain the nearly one million gallons per reactor per minute, needed to cool them, the continued exposure to the entire world has continued unabated, unchecked. Adequate cooling flow to prevent what is truly a “China Syndrome” was not possible even had the cooling system at Daichi survived the earthquake event.
At Daichi, where a reactor meltdown of no less than 3 operational reactors- which incidentally were fueled up with MOX fuel, a highly unstable form of nuclear fuel that not only mandates total cooling control, but ensures disastrous results if such cooling ‘fails’ as was the case in March of 2011 in Japan- we had a situation whereupon these 3 reactors were overheated beyond cooling within minutes. By the time the tsunami hit the plants, these reactors were in very dire condition and the fuel had already overheated and breaching their containment vessels, to the point of no return. I have studied literally hundreds of photos of the aftermath damage to the facility, and come to the conclusion that indeed, Unit #3 detonated in a ‘prompt uncontrolled criticality’ (nuclear explosion) and effectively destroyed the spent fuel pool at Unit #4 when it did so.
Nuclear Expert Arnie Gunderson, in his very sobering video (see below) had stated that it is very clear that statements and reports about the wholesomeness of Unit #4’s SFP (pool) are out and out ‘lies’ and ‘fabrications’ as it would be tantamount to expecting a spaghetti collandar to hold boiling water within it, post explosion damage. Close up photographs show massive wreckage from overhead refueling cranes and other equipment and, in some photographs, it is crystal clear that the pool was so destroyed that it was impossible to keep enough water in it to cool the fuel within that pool. Add to that the fact that the unwise use of seawater really accelerated the corrosion and breach of the zircalloy cladding of the fuel assemblies in their racks, ensuring that within hours, the fuel reached temperatures that,  in effect, guaranteed the breach of the fuel rods within these racks and absolutely positively ensured that, in effect, the fuel in this pool was in fact an open air reactor without any control capability of any kind.
This is, in effect, what we have ongoing today, as well as millions of gallons of highly radioactive seawater being dumped by TEPCO into the ocean from a large number of inadequate for the task, storage tanks which are not only leaking, but being pumped into the sea on purpose, because they lack the capacity to contain all of the seawater that has been pumped into the breached reactor containments since 2011. Now, many now have surmised that as the Japanese have restricted reporting about this incident,  that CIA teams that were flown into Japan in hours after the incident, must have instructed the Japanese to obfuscate the truth about the gravity of the situation in Fukushima prefecture- and that is reinforced by the total lockdown of the Japanese press in factual reporting about what has transpired in the aftermath. Instead of transparency and meaningful honest assessments, we have in the past four years, been fed incessant BS stories about valiant struggles to keep the Unit #4 spent-fuel pool intact and the cooling water flowing there.
Gunderson has all but confirmed that this is, at best, wishful thinking, and in fact, clearly is a total deception about the grave situation that the world now faces due to the lack of meaningful technical assessment and swift action to locate and arrest the travel of ‘3’ reactor coriums which now are in the ground beneath the facility, having flowed thru breached reactor containments like hot fudge would flow thru a damp cheesecloth. We are now confronted with obvious signs of massive animal “die offs” in the Pacific rim area, from Alaska all the way down to Peru and some of the South and the Central American nations, who have the misfortune of being exposed to the radiation that outflows from Japan unabated, which has continued to kill nearly every living species that exists in these waters. Just recently it was stated that sea lions rescued in San Francisco were afflicted with a form of leukemia from their exposure to the huge amount of radiation in the ocean from this massive, unchecked disaster.
Evidence Of The Death Of The Pacific Ocean: Specifically, dolphins and whales have borne the brunt of the relentless onslaught of radiation flowing freely from Daichi across the Pacific to the west coast of the United States. In some cases, entire species of fish have been totally wiped out and, as many have guessed, the many mammals which depend on these species of fish to survive have paid a terrible price for being in the wrong place at the right time. Recently, many herds of sea lions and mammals that rely on these now decimated fish to eat have been found on the California Coast, so desperate that they are literally found gnawing on rocks and eating sand on the beach to fill their emaciated and nutrition depleted bodies. A number of species of whales have beached themselves between Alaska and Southern California, with no signs of predation, they too emaciated and their bodies normal storage of blubber, depleted.
Why? It’s been speculated by alleged ‘scientists’ that a ‘warm blob’ has caused the massive die-off’s of these fish species and mammals, yet in case after case, nary one word in any of their disclosures mentions the testing for radionuclides and daughter products from the destroyed reactors at Daichi. With all of these scientists scratching their collective noggins about the root cause of these deaths, not one has remotely suggested that testing for radiation in these carcasses be done. That is not only criminal, that is absurd.
In one case, an alleged scientist named Torah Kachur has said that it cannot really be blamed on ‘radiation’ because ‘potato chips’ contain more radiation than the seawater flowing from Japan to the West Coast of the United States. Makes one wonder where she buys her potato chips at, or who sponsors her to make such outrageous statements as this. Ken Buesseler from Woods Hole, California, is of the same ilk, downplaying the effects of the radiation while allegedly parroting obtuse statements that would lead everyone to believe that this radiation, no matter how much or for how long, poses ‘no threat’ to anyone or anything. This is, at the very least, incredible chutzpah to the point of absurdity.
A Miasma Of Radiation Circling The Globe Every 44 Days: Maybe Torah Kachur is right. I sure know that all of the potato chips I have consumed in my life certainly caused major illness and symptoms of radiation poisoning, and certainly breached reactors thousands of miles away in Japan pose no threat to anyone. Or, as some flight crews are finding, they are losing their hair and developing symptoms of immune system breakdowns that are traditionally very symptomatic of long term high altitude exposure to radionuclides in the cabins of airliners they work in. One airline had the audacity to blame the uniforms for this nuance, but some passengers have taken expensive geiger counters with them on trans-Pacific flights and found the radiation levels aloft are unusually ‘high’, notwithstanding what you would normally expect from cosmic radiation up there.
Though many people are not trained radiologists, they do in fact have the ability to read their geiger counters correctly, even if they cannot themselves isolate which isotope or radionuclide is causing the readings. In the cases of people in California, who own many HEPA air filters in their homes, they merely take the aggregate dirt off the filters and then read this with their meters. Many, many videos of these experiments by ordinary people with expensive meters shows that, beyond any reasonable doubt, the radiation not only is here, but it’s here in inexplicable abundance. Arguably one could make a case that in a post nuclear era, radiation is abundant; but since 2011, the global background radiation measurements made by many of us, including myself, are so alarming that they fall into a category known as ‘breathtaking’, to say the least.
So what was the EPA and the government’s answer to this very plausible threat from Japan? Well, for starters, they began to petition to raise the allowable limits in our environment by a magnitude of at least ‘ten’ if not more, in drinking water and food. One has to ask one’s self that if there was no ‘threat’ from this problem in Japan, ‘why’ would a sudden fast track approach to raising these limits really need to be? Why would the government need to change anything if Fukushima was not really a problem at all? Well, certainly the limits imposed on food and water put all of our food and water we ingest today into a near ‘hazardous waste’ category of contaminated material. Unfortunately it’s our ‘food’ and ‘water’ supply here, not something we can choose not to ingest or bathe in or drink. Part of the answer lies in results normal everyday shoppers have gotten from taking their GM meters to the grocery store. (Note that this video is from August, 2012. The levels have no doubt risen considerably since then. – CP)

It’s very ‘sobering’ to have your meter indicate a significant ‘rise’ in radiation in everything from dairy products to produce, and indeed, any number of types of seafood that has been harvested from Pacific Ocean waters. I have, as a truck driver, personally seen where a load of 38,000 pounds of ‘Pacific salmon’ suddenly became less than 8,000 pounds of ‘heavily reworked’ salmon that had to be chopped up to remove lesions and sores on it before repackaging for a major food supplier in So. California. Why? Especially if there was no threat? Had a geiger meter been taken into that 53 foot trailer I hauled it in, there is no doubt in my mind that in fact that ‘salmon’ they reworked probably met the category of amount of radiation to mandate labelling the truck with HAZMAT placards. This is food we’re talking about here. In the past four years, background radiation in many many U.S. localities has risen dramatically (see Fukushima Update 9/05/2015 post below this article. – CP):
As we do have data from pre-Fukushima times, where background gamma levels in major metropolitan area’s were certainly quite ‘low’ then, without any linkage to other possible sources, one has to at least consider the fact that the manifold increases in background gamma radiation in America must be from somewhere else perhaps, as the feasibility of such widespread increases across the continent seem to defy single or even multiple ‘local’ sources of it. We know that WIPP in Carlsbad, New Mexico is one source, as are many nuclear power plants, but here again, these rises across the board say that the United States is being lambasted with radiation from at the very least, a very high altitude source that keeps on coming and increasing. What source would that be?
In the aftermath of Chernobyl, the population of much of Europe has been exposed to the fallout from that disaster. It began to appear in mother’s milk and the bones of infants, within a short span of time. Dramatic increases in various radiation related illnesses began to appear in countries thousands of miles from the ‘exclusion zone’ in the Ukraine. Now more than 25 years later, we still see a wide region in this area that many organisms that would cause rapid decomposition of dead wood to be so absent that ‘wormwood’ seems to remain intact when many species of insect life are ‘gone’ in the area. So, without going to this exclusion zone, we have some photos of what the area in the region around this disaster look like today, taken by a young Russian woman who braved the levels on her motorcycle. Clearly, decades later, Chernobyl did not recover, and the large and vast area that was made into a ‘forever’ exclusion zone in human lifetimes, will never ever be the same ever again. Some species of wild Deer and Boars seem to thrive there, and some humans have moved back in at their own risk, but this area is not as some ‘nut job’ miscreants declare the area to be; “A BOOMING WILDLIFE REFUGE AND VACATION AREA”
If Chernobyl’s single reactor failure could do this, how is it that no less than 3 reactors that were breached in Japan would be somehow lesser than this, especially with one of them having detonated and blown fissile fuel rod material as far away from these reactors as NORWAY? Any reasonable person would at least deduce that given the fact we can compare the amount of reactor fuel involved at Chernobyl and at Fukushima’s three destroyed reactors, that an approximate total tonnage of ejected fuel from the reactor at Unit #3 there in Fukushima means that for the foreseeable future, we’ll have circling the globe, a massive amount of upper atmosphere ‘poison’ from this one plant, and untold amounts of sea-borne radiation constantly finding it’s way into the world’s oceans, from the Pacific.
Is it any wonder that rosy suppositions about the ‘harmlessness’ of this disaster are at the very least, very banal and pathetically criminal intentional attempts to shield the public to the overall grave consequences of having done absolutely ‘nothing’ to stop or ameliorate the continued flow of radiation out of Japan, globally? I know of one person so in ‘denial’ that her daily swim fest in the Pacific goes on every chance she gets, as she believes that this threat is merely a ‘PsyOp’ the government is running and nothing is amiss. How sadly far from the truth is her denial.
An Extinction Level Event: It has been affirmed that the magnitude of the disaster we have in Japan poses such a grave threat that, over time, the loss of the food chain- and in fact, the very plankton that generates the bulk of the breathable oxygen we depend on, and the long term destruction to mitochondrial DNA in many living species, over a few decades- poses such a grave threat to all living things that not only humans but much of the animal kingdom face ‘extinction’ due to these changes. When asked by a fellow co-worked about the gravity of the Fukushima radiation problem, I told her, “Many of us believe this will in time bear itself out to be an ELE or ‘extinction level event’ and that as the destruction of the Pacific spreads, magnification of the effects will make it very apparent that something is horribly wrong.” She asked, “So how much time?”, to which I answered, “Perhaps twenty years- maybe a bit longer, given the rapidity of the death of the Pacific and many species in it.”
I don’t think I have to tell you her reaction- and it wasn’t disbelief. It was sadness. In any case, whether you agree to disagree, or think this is a ‘PsyOp’ as one friend believes (and blaming it all on the Navy’s ‘sonar’ systems and other intentional poisonings), what is clear to me is that the dearth of sea birds and other life in the area where I live off the coast of Washington State is so dramatic to me that at some point all of the government obfuscation and lying won’t cover this up. No cat can hurl that much litter over this turd that keeps stinking. Every day of every year, we are ingesting food and water that is now tainted with Fukushima radiation. How much cellular destruction our bodies can withstand without gross mutation is unclear, but those who have watched “RADIO BIKINI” and seen first hand what exposure to radiation does to humans, cannot be glib or silent about their concerns. We have a very very serious problem.
Nobody apparently believes it to be so, but my guess is that the folks at the highest levels of our world governments are preparing for the societal breakdown once this ‘cat’ gets out of the proverbial bag. 20 years? Who knows? But one thing is clear: As the Pacific Ocean dies, so do the rest of the world’s oceans in time. The onslaught of the radiation is never ending in human lifespans. Pooh pooing the threat or guffawing it away won’t fix it.
It’s like a roaring fire in your living room, only you realize you don’t have a fireplace. Then it gets rather sticky, if not downright soberingly dire. Our inaction is the foreword to our very epitaph if we shrug our shoulders and decide it’s not our problem, or too big for us to worry about. If this is the best humankind can do in such a circumstance as this, maybe it is best we just went to our demise, oblivious, ignorant in most cases, and woefully uncomprehending of the probability that it all ends here all too soon, for our children and their children, if we do nothing. And there may be nothing we can do.” [There IS nothing we can do. - CP]

          New Zealanders who eat a lot of seafood may be exposing themselves to radiation and putting their health at risk, a study suggests.
          Researchers found seafood such as mussels, paua and oysters contained concentrated levels of radiation.
          Those at particular risk were sub-populations for whom fish consumption was culturally important and those relying of fishing and shellfish collection to feed their families, the study’s authors said in an article released on Friday.
          “Seafood has importance to the New Zealand population as a source of nutrition consumed in considerable amounts by some sectors of the community,” they said.
          “Chemical contaminants in seafood can therefore lead to significant health burdens to the population and it is an important public health function to identify the contaminants of concern and characterise their exposure.”
          Researchers measured levels of radioactive caesium and polonium in 36 kinds of seafood.
          Levels of caesium were of minimal dietary concern, but levels of polonium could “contribute significantly to the dietary does of ionising radiation for high seafood consumers, although the magnitude varies considerably depending on the composition of seafood species consumed,” the researchers said.
          They found levels in New Zealand were the same as found in other countries, which suggested the radiation was a worldwide result of global nuclear testing rather than the 2011 Fukushima incident.
          Radiation levels were higher in seafood than other foods, they said.
          The study by Andrew Pearson, Sally Gaw, Nikolaus Hermanspahn and Chris Glover was published in the Journal of Environmental Radioactivity earlier this year.

      No, you should of let them live and destroy the Chinese who will now destroy your aircraft carriers with their hypersonic weapons by the thousands raining from the sky on them then an EMP over your country.

      The Japanese would never do that to America. They looked to the East not the West for victory, Mr. Cockasoid, and ding-a-ling.

  • CrOnO_NaUgHt

    Very true. Here in MI, you can watch the jet stream on different websites. On those days that the winds are coming from Asia, and descending over CA and MI, the GC always will read abnormally high readings for various things. This obviously has to be coming from Japan, as you can see the winds, which correlate to the high particle readings. I also think that this is the doom of our time. At this point the best we can hope for, if for a pole shift to occur, which puts japan directly at the center of the south pole. (hint — hint)
    This way the radiation would at least become encased in ice, and/or the particles would be dropped over Japan, from the nea-constant snowfall.

      Very well Mr. Mayhem. Please tell us in your infinite wisdom, how to stop the fusion process so that the nuclear material, as you call it, may begin to finally dilute.

        I’m talking worst case scenario, CrowPie, which demands that all of it goes into the ocean whether it’s reacting its balls off or not.

        It’s a hypothetical and i would rather we cleaned the mess up and put the crap back where it came from and stopped messing with nukes until we were prepared to do so in safety. In safety i say and it’s do-able too.

        Don’t be snarky, sister, any wisdom i may have was taught to me by our Father.

          “I’m talking worst case scenario, CrowPie, which demands that all of it goes into the ocean whether it’s reacting its balls off or not”

          It would be better to REUSE the same water over and over rather than contaminate the oceans, Especially in a worst cases scenario.

          We are not discussing hypotheticals. This is the real thing.

          I’m not married to you, I’m not your sister, cousin or in anyway under your command …..l….don’t tell me what to do.

            Highest Recorded Radioactive City in America this week
            A new and unfamiliar Leader this week in the race for the Most Radioactive Weather in America is Ft Wayne, Indiana with 1,326 CPM. Congratulations to Ft Wayne, IN as the Most Radioactive City in America this week. Other competing cities for the title were not even close. Three cities exceeded 1,000 CPM this week in Your Rad Weather. Stay Alert and take all appropriate precautions.
            Changes – Five New Cities Added

            These cities are added to the Rad List in Your Radiation This Week. The cities are: Portland, Maine; Washington, D.C.; Montgomery, Alabama; Ft. Worth, Texas and Champaign, IL.
            Isotope Count reporting

            These CPM numbers do not represent the real radiation counts in your radiation weather this week. It is actually much higher [worse] than these government certified partial reports say. Use these report numbers as your Starting Point in adding up your daily, monthly and annual exposure from your Rad Weather.

            No Mayhem it’s not going to be okay. And you have proven yourself woefully out of your depth on this particular subject.

            Yes, salt water will break down a great many pollutants. However, you should do a great deal of research on how large mammals down to seaweed and kelp are affected by cesium and radiation before you begin to make broad-brush statements about “everything is going to be “okay.”

            Also, you might research the amount of dumping on a regular basis by the Russians in the Arctic…their nuclear seafaring accidents and those of other counties that are affecting the other seas. Then add that to the collective problem affecting our waters.

            Then….consider the everyday waste that is being dumped from every country…….every where.

            No….it’s most likely well past Okay.

            1) You speak of bio-degradation, not me.

            2) I didn’t say radiation was harmless just that it’s going to be okay in the long run.

            3) You bring up extraneous radiation sources, not me.

            4) The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is not due to Fukushima alone.

            5) The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. – “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness: And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her. Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account: Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.

            Mayhem…..the examples I gave…..are all nuclear in nature.

            Your comment is purely emotional.

          • Mayhem

            Is this article about the nature of all accidental nuclear discharges or is it about Fukushima?

          • CrowPie

            If you will reread my last comment, you will notice I preface my last paragraph with the word “also.”

            That usually means “I would like to add.”

          • CrowPie

            Please allow me to correct myself, it is the second to the last comment, middle paragraph.

  • DK

    MOX does not explode – it was proven in Fukushima reaches a criticality and ignites while melting and the site was fully proofed against hydrogen explosions with massive tower vents. Reactor 4 was unfueled and undergoing decommissioning therefore blew up without Hydrogen gas or Nuclear fuel which was stored in a tank on the roof as were all the reactors, spent fuel was in roof tanks.

    The decay products reaching America are the short term isotopes such as strontium and Tritium, they are short lived and very damaging if ingested however the Pacific is a huge ocean, has 187 quintillion(187^18) liters of water Fukushima has 700,000 gallons(2649788.25 liters i.e. 27^6 )of radioactive water therefore if released would dilute to 7^13th part of the ocean, and we do not have to do even that.

    Tritum half life is 12.5 years,

    You start with 2649788.25 liters of Tritium, which has a half life of 87.51 days. How much time will it take until only 1 liters remain

    elapsed time = half life * log (beginning amount / ending amount) / log 2
    elapsed time = 4489.5 * (log (2649788.25 / 1) / .30103)
    elapsed time = 4489.5 * (6.4232111 / .30103)
    elapsed time = 9.5794e+4 days or 262 years a tritium ice cube the size of a football stadium has to sit in the middle of the Antarctic to be safe.

    • DK

      Correction half life of Tritium set at 4489.5 days or 12.3 years :oops:

      • CrowPie

        So can you refigure this at 700 hundred Olympic swimming pools DAILY since the accident? Because that is the amount of contaminated water that is being released into the ocean daily….just to keep the remaining disabled reactor from going critical.

        • DK

          OK Olympic swimming pool holds 660,430.1339 U.S. gallons * 700 = 462,301,093 per day according to National Geographic this is 71,895 per day at this time and this is through the infrastructure(

          The actual water discharged used ‘may’ be the right total but filtered (

          Currently the total amount of water recovered is 400 tonnes per day(105 668.82 US Gallons) and this company is the one that does the filtering( Therefore I view the 400 tonne figure as the accurate one for the site – we cannot measure the groundwater flow and they are treating as much as possible.

          • CrowPie

            Those rods that are being kept cool. They are NOT allowed to touch one another. If they DO touch one another….BOOM. Right?

            When the Tsunami hit and they sent cameras in on robots…..the found that many of those rods were broken in TWO or missing Altogether…..the likely cause….the tsunami moved them and made them touch one another.

            So….your argument above about MOX is moot. Especially when some of those rods melted right through the cement floor and just kept going into the earth …..deeper and deeper…….

          • Mayhem

            Not right, CrowPie, given that Zirconium, or Zircaloy, only becomes pyrophoric when it is in the form of a fine powder where the particle diameter is less than 54 µm. That’s 0.002″ or 0.05mm or half the diameter of a human hair.

            You might read this study to alleviate your ignorance…


            … and watch this video to see a demonstration of fuel rods not burning…


          • CrowPie

            Sorry Mayhem….fifteen minutes of reading google is not going to top the education I have available to me in my living room from a live human that works with this stuff on a regular basis. :!:

            I have been discussing these subjects INDEPTH with a professional for over fifteen years because it affects my immediate community.

            I understand that you have a need to ‘win’ but as you quoted….

            The Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) is part of The US Department of Energy (DOE) but if you’d rather not, CrowPie, that’s fine by me.

            If the video from UC Berkely isn’t for you either that’s also fine by me, Ostrich.

          • DK

            Crow pie, a criticality just means there is a self sustaining chain reaction, it is not necessarilly explosive in any way.

            The pool of molten Uranium and Plutonium under each reactor is undergoing criticality a self sustaining nuclear chain reaction where neutrons are being released and absorbed by atoms in an uncontrolled event in a pool of several hundred tonnes of molten reactor fuel.

            Reactors undergo controlled criticality just to work via the means of Boron injection and Graphite control rods, just one or two being together will not cause a criticality.

            You need a moderator – a dense substance too slow down neutrons so a chain reaction can occur. Any substance will(such as all the fuel in a reactor in a mass of sufficient density) do at a sufficient density. However rods are designed not to do this bare, else we could not have nuclear reactors. They do however ignite because when spent they heat up to around 800 degrees igniting their casing.

          • CrowPie

            ” The US Department of Energy (DOE)” YES!!!! :idea: EXACTLY!!!!

            Who do you think I’ve been learning from, the mail man?


            “a self sustaining chain reaction, it is not necessarilly explosive”

            Let us examine this statement you so easily made.

            a self sustaining chain reaction…self sustaining….meaning continuous…..non-stop….can not BE stopped. Oh yes..that sounds lovely….we just tapped into a technology we cannot touch, stop and know absolutely nothing about now. GREAT!

            “Is not necessarily explosive” I have to laugh here….because we know for a fact that there WAS indeed a tremendous explosion at Fukushima. We also know for a fact that there are many MISSING rods.

            @ Mayhem,

            Now who has feathers on their legs?

          • Mayhem

            I don’t give any thought at all, CrowPie, to hearsay. I couldn’t care less to whom you bow because i don’t think my own opinion is worth very much let alone any other – especially when it’s second hand opinion. Have you never played Chinese Whispers?

            So then what of the big boom that the Japanese saw and heard. Well the fuel rods are coated with Zr as a primary containment coating. Not total containment but enough to stop them getting their freak on, just for fun, so long as they are kept cool enough. This way they are acceptably stable and can be stored in less water than would otherwise be required. Less water: didn’t you say something about that?

            Just like DK was trying to say, although he did go off track a little, when this layer of heat oxidized Zirconium is damaged it allows for the free exchange of thing-a-me-bobs which makes big heat and releases radiation. This fast becomes danger time if, for some reason, the cooling system fails.

            If enough of the coating is damaged on enough of the rods, while in a storage pool instead of in the reactor chamber, things quickly get very exciting. It’s safe to assume that enough rods were damaged sufficiently, given the explosion, because when water is heated so quickly that it bypasses the steam stage it fractures into two parts catalyst and one part fuel in which case the rods generally go postal. The result of which was an horrific tragedy for the Japanese but will only be a significant nuisance for the Hawaiians and no real biggie for Elsewhereans. It’s going to be okay in the long run.

            Correct, CrowPie, the reaction cannot be stopped only contained and that is why we drop thousands of tons of the stuff down disused mine shafts and fill ships up with it then scuttle them in international waters. Pardon please: I mean have a mishap at sea like a freak wave and turn turtle not “scuttle”. In both cases we dump material with tens of thousands of years half life in containers that are expected to last 50-100 yrs. And we have already dumped far more material than Fukushima and Chernobyl combined. Yet the world abides because it all works out fine in the long run.

          • DK

            @ CrowPie

            When I mean not necessarily explosive, perhaps I misrepresented the difficulty, it is extremely if not impossible to create a nuclear explosion by accident.

            Nuclear reactors are specifically designed for this not to occur, the rods are the specific length and composition with that in mind, even the case thickness. This is why one nuclear companies fuel cannot be used in anothers reactor.

            Sellafield has an entire faculty filled with MOX rods, which will simply burn if exposed (

            Fukushima suffered a non accidental nuclear explosion the fingerprint of which was reactor 4 unfueled yet detonated with your alleged nuclear detonation :lol: .

          • CrowPie

            :lol: Is that right?

            Your actually going to sit here and claim a…..

            “non accidental nuclear explosion the fingerprint of which was reactor 4 unfueled yet detonated with your alleged nuclear detonation?”

            Have you considered taking your comedy act on the road?

        • DK


          Well if you would like to enlighten the world as to how 270 tonnes of U235 encased in inert ceramic fuel pellets suddenly turn into a small fissile nuclear device when the reactor is designed for this never to occur – and it is not possible- I will personally recommend you for your Nuclear Physics PHD, in fact you would have managed to personally prove that all Nuclear reactors should be closed with immediate effect.

          Meltdown yes, if all the safety features are disabled and even then someone could rig car batteries to the coolant pumps – you would in fact have to somehow take over the plant to fool the staff that nothing was amiss so they did nothing, not even pull out the fuel rods.

          In this case they had 8 hours and it turns out a functioning control center.

          • CrowPie

            I am going to copy paste some information below (I can not post the link due to TOS) but I’m sure you can easily find it.

            You likely will hate the source as it is ENENEWS. However, many professionals disagree with your view as the following will show.

            Also you must keep in mind…..the standard information put forth by the government on this subject is also the same government that encourages the masses to be vaccinated.

            I trust that DK and Mayhem will both be running right down to receive your shots in the morning?


            Chris Gifford to Infrastructure Planning Commission (UK) (pdf), engineer and risk management consultant, March 14, 2012: In my paper Fukushima Dai-ichi V4 I quoted six authorities who share the opinion that nuclear explosion of fissile material out of control is possible. […] Zhores Medvedev in a preface to the 2011 edition of ‘The Legacy of Chernobyl’ describes the Chernobyl explosion as a nuclear explosion […] the record shows that Dr Webb’s [who worked on US Navy nuclear reactors] assertion that nuclear explosion was possible was not disputed by Mr Rimington nor by two senior HM Inspectors of Nuclear Installations. […] Professor Jack Harris, FRS, FEng, was a nuclear metallurgist involved in the design of British gas cooled reactors [supported] Ross Hesketh’s position on the possibility of a nuclear explosions in nuclear reactors […] Sir John Hill when Chairman of the Atomic Energy Authority in the UK […] wrote in the house journal of the Authority in 1992: “When the Americans chose graphite moderated water cooled piles for plutonium production they recognised that a failure of the water supply or control system could result in prompt criticality and a nuclear explosion such as happened 40 years later at Chernobyl.”

          • CrowPie


            So….do I still get my recommend? :oops: :smile:

          • DK

            All bar Sir John Hill, AKA Mr Magnox(Chairman of the UKAE from 1967 – 1982) who championed the worlds safest reactor design outside the Liquid Thorium nuclear reactor – which was also the most expensive ever made.

            At the time he made his comments the alternative was the PGW or LGWR using water as coolant, the safety features of the 1950′s era magnox reactor was simple, it used inert liquid CO2 as coolant, safety mechanisms which shut down the reactor by mechanical intervention such as automatic ejection of rods and moderators by a mechanical device which unless operators cancelled the operation would automatically shut the reactor down. Everything by default was sub critical.

            I would tend to rule him out because of an establishment bias against a non British design even if it is safe.

            The westinghouse PGWR which he was opposed to was critical by design, the reactor had to be cooled over 8 hours needing pumps to circulate the pressurized water which was in fact ionized recombinant Oxygen and Hydrogen in gaseous form, the failure of the unit which did this and cooled the gas to pressurized water automatically doomed the reactor to a hydrogen explosion.

            Other features included the moderator being Boron injected into the coolant, which at high temperatures could form a scale leading to a runaway meltdown, the fact that unlike the British magnox, there was no way an operator could remove the moderator or the rods while in operation. For safety reasons everything was done remotely from the control room up to a mile away, which allows some very nasty terrorist scenarios.

            Chris Gifford quotes chances of meltdown and containment failure as The literature suggests a range for the probability of major accidents (core meltdown plus containment failure) from 2×10-6 in France, to 4×10-9 in the UK a 2010 paper he wrote on Hinkley C
            The paper you link to( links the Nuclear explosion to Chernobyl via author Zhores Medvedev, Hes a champion of the Nuclear detonation of nuclear reactors concept, personally I am in no rush to test out the theorem at Hinkley.

            The Chernobyl reactor as pointed out in Zhores book was a design with a faulty rod cladding, the safety mechanisms were turned off while an emergency shutdown sequence was initiated firing moderating rods into the reactor, apparently creating nuclear reactions 100times the design rating for the reactor. The resulting explosion was equivalent to ten tonnes of TNT and there is no evidence to prove a nuclear explosion, conversely none to disprove one either. It is a valid theory therefore probable.

            However you are not going to get the effect crossing 2 spent nuclear fuel rods. And Fukushima 4 was unfueled and unconnected to the other reactors save by the Hydrogen vents, cables and the building.

            Working for the Manhatten project Richard Feynman claculated the amount of HEU needed to create a supercritical mass to be about 50KG. i.e. The little boy had 62kg of HEU to produce 17,000 tonnes of TNT damage.
            1KG of HEU therefore = 17,000/62 = 274 Tonnes of TNT
            Coversely to get a equivalent explosion of 10 TONNES of TNT = 62/17000 = 0.036 kg which is 49kg below the supercritical size needed to create a nuclear explosion.

            Now if you had a neutron gun of a sufficient size and concentrated all the slow neutrons on any fissionable product anywhere you can create a nuclear detonation if Keff > 1 (i.e the Dr Doom Patent pending orbiting power station zapper.)

            I will second your paper :grin:

          • CrowPie

            Your arguments till do NOT address the fact that

            1) a great many professionals disagree with you.

            2) an explosion did in fact take place

            3) rods are broken and missing

            4) the very fact that you try to cast shade upon those who speak against your argument is telling in it’s self…… :grin:

          • DK

            Well the professionals do not disagree, they are not in a position to do so. If they disagree – they are claiming their chief paymaster the nuclear industry come Government has designed and put into effect a 270 tonne nuclear weapon in the guise of a civilian power plant in 300 odd locations throughout America which could go off with no indication whatsoever despite all safety features to the contrary and they are out of a job on Monday even IF its true nobody wants to join the 95 million.

            An explosion in each reactor did take place, in fact 4 – its just that the fuel mix in each reactor was massively wrong for nuclear weapons, only one had MOX for enrichment and that was Number 3.

            Rods are not only broken or missing, they have dissolved during at least 3 massive fires at the Fukushima complex.

            I laugh at 4 because I am on BIN, As far as BIN readers are concerned the POPE lit a match.

    this must be be slowest and most harmless radiation disaster ever.

    That isn’t radiation, that means that the whales haven’t eaten their amount to produce enough blubber to survive the winter

    Fukushima is only one of numerous nuclear disasters currently threatening the health and welfare of the earth and mankind. However, despite the lengthy half-lives of radionuclides, nature has the power to purify the world of all nuclear toxins in a matter of hours.

    The process is called “quantum tunneling” whereby intense ion storms from the sun or from intense terrestrial electro-magnetic storms are able to rearrange the molecular structure of radionuclides and rapidly render them harmless.

    During the Three Days of Darkness, when Christ and His Angels visit the earth, quantum tunneling will be employed to purify the earth back to pristine, Eden-like conditions. All this is clearly outlined in Biblical prophecy — and in fact represents the only hope for the future of mankind.
