The Age Of Superstition

No, the earthquake has nothing to do with climate change – past, present or future.

    The plant did more than what it was designed to do. The training was in place to contain the situation and the plants were designed for this type of failure. Yes they need to upgrade the safety measures to handle a quake more powerful than this one. This was an older style plant and advances in design have been made. Also most countries are not subject to an earthquake of this magnitude.
    Most hype being distributed is by the NO-Nuke brotherhood which is a subset of the Chicken Little Brigade.

  2. A third explosion kids. Are we having fun yet?

    SOMA, Japan – A third explosion in four days rocked the earthquake-damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant…..

  3. Oh ya, the Japanese have called on the US for help. But everything is under control and nuclear power is great!

    Japan calls for U.S. help cooling the reactor

    AAM, I’m sick and tired of listening to this meltdown hype……….
    and that’s what it is, nothing buy hype from the news

    The real problem is about people.
    They are hurting in the worst way right now and no hope for the future.
    They can’t even rebuild without power, and they way things are going it’s going
    to be tens of years before they get power back.

    • But meltdown is a real possibility. The fuel in the reactor that was adjacent to the reactor where the second explosion is exposed.

      in the audio interview at this link listen starting at 2:29 you can hear the ex-Navy Cdr. talking about it.

      the audio will begin automatic download after clicking on it

      • Latitude says:

        and a damn breaking is a real possibility too…

        …nothing is without some risk

        Those poor people are going to suffer and keep suffering until they have power.

        Didn’t the Three Mile Island Disaster That Never Happened involve a complete meltdown?

        Sorry Amino, but the nonstop hype is starting to cause a meltdown in ‘news’ credibility. I thought we had hit the peak of that with the BP spill but, no…

        Anyone who even mentions Chernobyl in the context of this event is either ignorant, lying, or constantly on TV…

        That said, let’s hope that this doesn’t get worse for the sake of the people in Japan (not for all the Chicken Littles in Malibu worrying about this).

      • I never mentioned Chernobyl.

        I have heard someone who was an nuclear power instructor in the Navy say that the reactor currently in trouble has a real possibility of meltdown. Who will I believe? The media, you, or him?

      • Latitude

        I don’t know where you are getting the idea that I don’t want them to have electricity.

        A dam breaking doesn’t release radiation into the atmosphere that drifts with the wind. I don’t know what you are arguing for.

      • ChrisD says:

        Didn’t the Three Mile Island Disaster That Never Happened involve a complete meltdown?

        No, actually it didn’t. There was partial melting of some of the rods, but it wasn’t a complete meltdown.

      • Al Gored says:

        Amino… sorry, I wasn’t point fingers at you. I was just commenting on what I must have heard a zillion times today – absurd comparisons with Chernobyl.

        Almost expect to see some dense reporter point to the sun and say that’s what will happen next.

        Or maybe this radiation will produce mutant swine flu viruses that will drift over to Silicon Valley and fY2K up the computers and cause jetliners to crash into Iraq and ignite Saddam’s cache of WMDs which will melt the Arctic ice cap and drown all the polar bears that manage to survive the acid rain?

        Of course, if we give the Banksters another Trillion or so they will protect us.

  5. Latitude and Al Gored,

    would you like to be one of the firefighters here?

    “A FIRE is burning at the No.4 nuclear reactor at Japan’s stricken Fukushima No. 1 power plant, ”

    • Al Gored says:

      No thanks. But I admire their courage.

      • I admire it to. I don’t know how they do it. I remember a story from Chernobyl where the guy that lead the team to put cement over the reactor knew he was going to die from it. He died something like 8 months later.

      • Al Gored says:

        Amino, they are heroes in the true sense of the word. Pure altruism. And in Japan their cohesive society probably promotes that even more than here (recall kamikaze pilots).

        Still, much easier to just discuss it in the abstract. I cannot imagine being so courageous and unselfish. My current excuse is that now I’m too old but even in my youth I don’t think I was ever up to anything like that.

  6. Latitude and Al Gored,

    would you like to be the one that has to get up close to do something if a meltdown starts?

    ……emergency operations to pump seawater into one crippled reactor failed….

    If they are unable to cool this reactor down it’s going to be very messy. Would either one of you like to go there and help do something about it if the worse case scenario unfolds? Because someone is going to have to do it.

  7. Al Gored says:

    So… what is the worst possible outcome in the event of a complete meltdown?
