About the April 28 Fire at Chernobyl - Still Raging

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



A large forest fire approaches the radioactive ruins of the Chernobyl nuclear plant.

The fire is stirring up radioactive particles and it is already affecting the US.

From satellite photos – by April 30 the Chernobyl fire had burned IN THE EXCLUSION ZONE WHERE IT STARTED AND BURNED THE HIGHEST RAD LEVELS OF CONTAMINATION MAX EXPOSURE:

1,769 km sq

1,276,900 hectares

3,155,288.6 acres

4,930 km sq

The fire had already burned up over 3 million acres by April 30. This Sky Truth article says the smoke plume is headed toward Europe.

Fire Evolution in the Radioactive Forests of Ukraine and Belarus: Future Risks for the Population and the Environment

From Environment International:
Wildfires in Chernobyl-contaminated forests and risks to the population and the environment: A new nuclear disaster about to happen?

“An important factor in our simulations was the emission factor of 137Cs after a fire event, namely the fraction that will be emitted compared to what is present on the ground or in the biomass. Yoschenko et al. (2006) reported that this fraction is 4% conducting fire experiments in Chernobyl (small, controlled fires) and measuring budgets. Amiro et al. (1996) found that the emission factor ranges between 20 and 100% depending on the temperature of burning of straw, pine and aspen. Horrill et al. (1995) performed experiments for heather burning and found that 10–40% of137Cs would be emitted After heather fires depending again on the temperature (12% after a cool burning and 39% after a hot burning). Finally, Piga (2010) performed similar fire experiments in an artificial experimental site using contaminated wood as fuel finding a redistribution of approximately 10% for 137Cs. Beyond biomass, the fate of 137Cs deposited in the soil and how much would escape to the atmosphere after a fire event are of major importance. Cesium-137 is accumulated in the top-soil layer (Yablokov et al., 2009) and remains there for many years (presenting small migration velocities, Lujanieneo et al., 2002). It presents a low boiling point (669 °C) and it is lost in the smoke even when located in the soil through volatilization. Paliouris et al. (1995) showed that the redistribution from soil is more than 20% in North American boreal forests.”

HERE IS THE ABSOLUTE PROOF THEY HAVE BEEN EXPERIMENTING WITH MOX FUEL IN UKRAINE – THE CAUSE OF FUKUSHIMA.

EXCERPT:

Earlier, Energoatom, an operator of Ukraine’ nuclear plants, said the second unit of the Khmelnitsky nuclear plant would be tested in the load following regime in a period from April 21 to May 11. It means that in period of lower electricity consumption the unit’s capacity will be reduced from 1,000 to 750 megawatt. The company said it was a “routine world practice.”

Apart from that, according to Maiboroda, the situation is aggravated by “experiments with nuclear fuel” in Ukraine, in particular, the use of Westinghouse fuels at the third power unit of the South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant [it blew up on Dec. 30]. She said citing Russia’s nuclear reactor designer, the Gidropress Design Bureau, that such fuels were not meant to be used at Ukrainian power units.
