Perhaps pictures of what the Japanese did to China and then to American prisoners should be included in the shrine to war.

In 1979 I tested safety systems on BWRs like those in Fukushima. All nuclear powerplants are too dangerous and too expensive to use.

Pootie's threats are just making other states enlarge and improve their military capabilities.

Just keep digging, Vladimir.

Posted in: Images taken deep inside melted Fukushima reactor show damage, but leave many questions unanswered See in context

It is the pictures of what is left of Unit Three which interest me, since the fuel (MoX), was spiked with plutonium and it blew the entire reactor vessel into the air.

It s not just the system, it is the incomplete people running it, those with no humanity.

"I would suppose that being on the losing side and the atrocities witnessed put a stop to many a conversation."

No, that's not it. Those who have been real battle do not talk about it.

Posted in: Japan begins final preparations for Fukushima water release See in context

I do not fear the tritium, I fear the the radionuclides not removed by the troubled filtration system. It had too many breakdowns and failures.

That water is not safe.

Posted in: Fukushima nuclear plant water release plan raises worries about setbacks to businesses See in context

The release of Tritium is not a problem, since regular nuclear power plants release more in normal operation. It is the traces of the other radioactive elements which bother me. I have little confidence in the trouble-plagued system which was supposed to remove them.

Posted in: Russia to tighten oversight of seafood over Fukushima water release See in context

In 1979 I did checks of GE Mark I BWRs like in Fukushima, and was concerned a little.

But these releases are much less than is normally dumped into waters by commercial nuclear powerplants.

Posted in: Japan gets U.N. nuclear watchdog approval for Fukushima water release See in context

I was opposed to this until I read how much tritium is released into the environment by a single nuclear power plant. It dwarfs this relatively small amount.

I am a former senior engineer for PG&E in California. I tested BWR safety systems on units like those in Fukushima. They are dangerous. My household and both eletric cars are powered by the solar system on our roof.

Don't need no nukes.

Did you notice they did not address Unit Three? It was loaded with fuel spiked with Plutonium, and blew apart.

What are you going to do there, grow corn? I live in California at 37 degrees 50 minutes, higher than Tokyo, and our PV panels provide power for the household and two electric cars.

Neutron bombardment slowly destroys everything, even the metals. Great risks ahead, and if Japan lets it happen again, what then?
