Plumes of mysterious steam rise from crippled nuclear reactor at Fukushima

01.01.2014 19:47

Fresh plumes of most probably radioactive steam have been detected rising from the reactor 3 building at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, said the facility’s operator company.

Actually, the smoke is likely nothing.

And there are 150K people still dislocated because of the triple meltdown 2 years later. There are hundreds of tons of radioactive water flowing into the ocean every day and they still do not have robots strong enough to go into the most radioactive places in the damaged reactors.

Don't forget that a fuel rod and a fuel bundle are worlds of different. In reactor 4 there are 1500 fuel bundles. Each bundle contains 60 to 90 rods (as per Arnie Gunderson from Fairewinds.org) This gentleman has so far been one of the very few to step forward and educate the average Joe public!!

Just out today apparently:

500% increase in radiation levels along the coast off California. Officials stating there is no immediate danger to the public..

No wonder there is some very strange behaviour being recorded by maritime biologists in Alaska - citing large increase of whale and Orca pods, behaving different from normal. When the animals start fleeing, we better start getting worried too.

[The answer, thus, should not be in complete erradication of nuclear powerplants, but in making them more efficient and safe for the environment.

  


There's no such thing. A core can be breached. it has been proven. A meltdown cannot be contained with all the advances we know to this day. We are ultimately doomed to mother nature that we have since sacrificed in our greed. There is no safe Nuke power. The containment vessel will and can eventually be breached. So say again your theory?

They knew this as far back "as we know": July of '13. Wake up people. we will continue to pour this disaster out as a "we just found out" occurrence yet we've known since 2011! Why does the media black this out then act like its new news?! Diana you are not crazy you just have to do your own research as no one but guys with a laptop and webcam seem to be, or allowed to be, showing the worse catastrophe in this worlds history!

Do NOT trust what Japanese Government is saying, Japanese Government will say trust what Tokyo Electric is saying. Get out of the Fukushima plant. Get as far away from the Fukushima plant as you can. It’s literally a core meltdown.

T he official Japanese Government position is that it’s safe. Now go explain that to the people who served on ‎United States Ship Ronald Reagan.

[The answer, thus, should not be in complete erradication of nuclear powerplants, but in making them more efficient and safe for the environment. This, however, is not the priority for the companies owning nuclear powerplants, as they merely seek the best economic choice in their operation.[/quote] Unfortunately you still believe that these incidents are not deliberately caused as an attack upon mankind itself. We are not the dominant species on this planet, but we will be soon because a lot of people know that our governments are not run by human beings, but possessed human bodies being used like puppets.

Please tell me what your source is. I can not find it anywhere in this report. My family thinks I am a crazy conspiracy theorist, when I tell them that we should be alarmed about Fukushima. I have heard that 98% of fish are dying off the California coast! That is alarming, but I may have a tin foil hat on my head too! I need real reputable reporting with back up reporting, now!

I saw that famous line from Anne Coulter, cesium is good for you. I am conspiracy theorist, but if steam is coming out of a damaged nuclear power station, I am not going to inhale.

OrionV, I don't see the link you are referring to. Could you repost that?

  


RT didn't let me post the link (probably a spam screen), but I stated the website for the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Centre (NETC) - just google it.

Some pretty concerning stuff on there, and it's all relating to news and fact finding within the scientific community most of which doesn't seem to be shedding any lime light in the mainstream media.
