Robot detects locations of radioactive leaks at crippled Fukushima nuclear plant

14.11.2013 16:41

For the first time, a remote-controlled robot has detected the exact spot of radioactive water leaks from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant’s Reactor 1, local media reported.

Put the radiative water in a used oil tanker[s]
transf er the radiative throug a used oil rig,
to a deep dry well, wait for the shipment
seal the well head securelywent finished...
No pollination of the Pacific
No contamination of the Caribbean by the new
Nicaragua Canal that's happening...

The debris and demolished buildings can be destroyed using Hydroxy furnaces that will burn it all completely without any emitted atmospheric radiation. Even the excavators themselves will finally be properly destroyed when done by the purifying Hydroxy flames and furnaces.

Bring in a few hundred excavator's with Brown's Gas fuel cells and torches outfitted to them remotely controlled from miles away. Chop up the buildings, vaporize the spent fuel rods while still in their cooling pools, even underwater. Capture the corium's with titanium poles, cradling them so the corium's stop penetrating the ground. Then vaporize the corium's — chunk's at a time with Hydroxy flames (360 degrees around) until the danger is finally ended by their destruction.

What no picture of the water leaking out of the holes? So what we have here is the core melted through not only the primary steel containment, but also through the secondary concrete containment and this whole time all the highly radioactive water is pouring out of a hole in the reactor directly from the core and into the ground. It is no wonder they don't want to show you a picture.

In such a difficult position the Japanese again presented the solution after the damage. The robots should be there from the very beginning. Not after the fact. Also some times they lack the most elementary expertise in such matters.

Is this device currently tracking the three meltdown slags that are descending the strata beneath the plant?

I used to work with nuclear power plants in the USA. Per department of Energy regulations we were not allowed more than 100 millirem per year occupational dose. 1 sievert is 100,000 millirem. 1.8 sieverts an hour is 180,000 millirem. Which is 1800 times my former allowable dose for the year, in one hour.

This is a very high amount of radiation.

"However, TEPCO engineers said that they cannot estimate the amount of water that leaked through the holes, NHK reported." Need help? Estimate of the flow rate = Q = pi/4 (diameter squared) (square root of 2 g delta z)

The Japanese public social network has been down. They cut off twitter and facebook because of information leaks. Its been 18 days since there has been normal traffic on twitter facebook or utube. There was a twitter picture that showed steam coming off the water seemingly, and was saying that the ocean was boiling for a couple hunderd yards off the beach that the reactors sit on. If this is true, that would be very bad news. And that the Goverment would stop the voice of the people is not any better.

As this situation continues to worsen it is time for us to begin discussing how we protect ourselves from inevitable radiation exposure. Please visit me on twitter @Rad_Guard . I will continue to post ways you can begin protecting your body from the harmful effects of radiation exposure. There is hope!!

Lets hope the Japanese Gov will see sense, and let the international community help.

59 Total Thyroid Tumors In Fukushima Children
Novembe r 13th, 2013 SimplyInfo
New data has been released from the government study of thyroid abnormalities and cancer in Fukushima children. Of those screened 59 have been found to have tumors. The health survey examined 289,960 children total.
This becomes 1 cancer per 5000 people. This is far higher than the pre-disaster levels. This raises big questions about the claims that these are increased just due to more screening. The more these numbers grow the harder it is to dismiss the findings are some version of normal.
