Chloe: Day 3 of crazy storms haha Feb 19, 2017 15:02:30 GMT 10
geek: Hi I just joined this group, but have been prepping for a while. Is anyone following developments at Fukushima? Feb 19, 2017 21:45:25 GMT 10
paranoia: Welcome to the forum mate. I know it's still leaking... what've you seen? Feb 19, 2017 21:47:51 GMT 10
geek: From reports 160 tonnes of fuel has escaped containment and is on its way to 'China syndrome'. Radiation at the plant is so hi now 560 sievets at the entrance to the reactor building, so hi in fact closed circuit TV cameras only last a few minutes Feb 19, 2017 21:54:45 GMT 10
paranoia: Oh wonderful. I'll have to do some googleing, thanks for the heads up. Feb 19, 2017 21:59:08 GMT 10
paranoia: Good idea to introduce yourself if you'll be hanging around; Feb 19, 2017 21:59:35 GMT 10
geek: Ok I will do that. Feb 19, 2017 22:00:02 GMT 10
paranoia: Yeah, still looks bad. Mixed reports out of Tepco as to be expected. Actually found a few pro-nuclear sites claiming the 200-600 sievets to be a positive story as the probe went deeper and it could be much worse lol. Feb 19, 2017 22:19:30 GMT 10
paranoia: Should feel lucky we live on an island. Feb 19, 2017 22:20:28 GMT 10
paranoia: One without fault-lines that is Feb 19, 2017 22:21:11 GMT 10
geek: There is a Wikipedia artical written years ago about China syndrome and likely is worth a look. Feb 19, 2017 22:27:47 GMT 10
paranoia: Will do Feb 19, 2017 22:31:35 GMT 10
shinester: Geek, yeah following it. The radiation went up because the isotopes have been breaking down into more active radioactive elements down the chain. You sure about the china thing, thought that was related to heat with no cooling? Feb 20, 2017 0:33:45 GMT 10
shinester: That is I'm skeptical that there's any such risk, the heat went out of it long ago, the radiation... might take a very very long time. Feb 20, 2017 0:34:33 GMT 10
geek: I'm never sure about anything, however having worked around power station boilers I know we have not begun to see the heat and steam releases such massive heat sources could produce. Feb 20, 2017 8:48:45 GMT 10
geek: The Fukushima reactors only need refueling about every three years running at full output, nothing like that amount of energy has been release on site as yet so I doubt the heat has gone out of the fuel as you say. Feb 20, 2017 8:51:40 GMT 10
geek: A point of interest is that the Fukushima power plant was fueled with Australian Uranium. Feb 20, 2017 8:54:04 GMT 10
shinester: Maybe... though I'd like to see some empirical proof on the topic, more than happy to be corrected. It's got me a little curious. Feb 20, 2017 13:42:19 GMT 10
