Yeah, and may be the seven dwarfs will come and help with that, together with other characters from different fairy tales, right? Are you kidding? Who will believe in this "magic"?

Fukushima - A Weapon's Site ??

Take a look here. Some VERY interesting information about the Daiichi reactors at Fukushima. http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2013/09/fukushima-secret-nuclear-weapons.html So may be that's why all the secrecy and TEPCO's inability to deal with the problem. Anyone here have information to support/refut...

Re: Sr-90 Biological Half Life ??

OscarG, it took me a while, but I got some of those numbers for you, as published by TEPCO. Take a look here (attached). They don't have specific Sr90 numbers (they say under analysis), but they have the total beta, of which I think Sr90 is the major contributor. Actually the concentrations are goin...

Re: Energy Sources of the near future -Fracking

KeltPhys, here are a bunch of references about how bad fracking might be. I used to be a supporter, until I started reading up on it and realized that we are only given part of the picture. It's pretty bad :-(

Re: What we know about the Fukushima water leaks...

You people seem to forget that I am not the originator of these reports, I simply reference them. If you thing they are wrong, then complain to the actual authors!

Re: What we know about the Fukushima water leaks...

So what is it that bothers you about the reported doses? I have read dozens of articles, including reports from TEPCO that agree on the doses at the hot spots being 1800 mSv/hr. I am pretty sure that exposure to that dose for 4 hrs (as reported) would very likely kill someone. Are you saying that's ...

Re: List of Word nuclear reactors

The list shows 3 reactors under construction in the USA. Which 3 is it referring to? Also, it shows 100 reactors operating. Does that also include Vermont Yankee, which will shut down next year? And, it looks like there are lots of units under construction in China (28), in Russia (10), in India (7)...

Re: Risk Assessment in Light of Radiaiton

What is it with people always trying to muddy-up the waters by making totally inappropriate parallels? So, what are you saying, Kimchin, that events and accidents that already took place do not and should not change our calculations of the likelihood of these "rare" events? Why can't the industry ad...

Re: Fukushima radiation is killing hundreds of whales!

BTW, you should do a bit of research before you post such outrageous claims. It doesn't do much for your credibility, if you keep posting such hoax reports Hey, I didn't write the report! It was published and I simply referenced it. Are you saying I need to verify every published report by myself, ...
