In this Saturday, April 2, 2011 photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), leaking radioactive contaminated water drain through crack of a maintenance pit, right, into the sea, near the Unit 2 reactor of Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan. (Tokyo Electric Power Co.)


In this Saturday, April 2, 2011 photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), the inside view of the maintenance pit of Unit 2 reactor, where highly radioactive water spilled into the sea through a crack, is photographed before pouring concrete into it to keep from further leas, at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan.

In this Friday, April 1, 2011 photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), a TEPCO employee points at a crack newly discovered in a maintenance pit on the edge of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan. The crack was apparently caused by the March 11 earthquake and may have been leaking since then, said the company's spokesman Osamu Yokokura. (Tokyo Electric Power Co.)


In this Friday, April 1, 2011, photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co., workers for the company experimentally spray adhesive synthetic resin over the ground at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, northeastern Japan. TEPCO expects the resin spraying to prevent dust exposed to radiation materials from spreading out of the premises. (Tokyo Electric Power Co.)


In this photo taken on Thursday, March 31, 2011 by Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force and released by Japan Defense Ministry Friday, April 1, JMSDF personnel all in protective suits are aboard a tugboat towing a U.S. military barge carrying pure water towards the quay of the tsunami-stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex in Okumamachi, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan. (Japan Defense Ministry)


In this Thursday, March 24, 2011, photo available Friday, April 1, 2011, inside of the Unit 4 at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant is seen in Okumamachi, northeastern Japan. Steam comes out of debris by a crane device, in green, at the unit, Kyodo reports. The March 11 earthquake off Japan's northeast coast triggered a tsunami that barreled onshore and disabled the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. (Tokyo Electric Power Co.)


This image released by Japan Ground Self-Defense Force via Kyodo News shows the inside of Unit 4 at the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan, Sunday, March 27, 2011. (Japan Ground Self-Defense Force)

1. With that amount of destruction there is no doubt about the level of the disaster.
Why they didn't go to the highest level of nuclear disaster from the start is criminal.

2. I tend to agree
with your statement. I had wondered that, myself.

9. And the fact that the US still hasn't shown up to help is criminal too..
I read where ships are just sitting off the coast of Japan 'observing' Why aren't they giving them water or something to help. Sick.

3. Your thread will probably be locked...

...sadly. The mods consider cryptome.org a "hate site" for some reason.

4. Was Arnie Gundersen wrong in his fuel racks video?
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 06:37 AM by MellonCollie
If you look at this still from the video...





and compare it to this photo posted by Paradoxical...



...you can see that the "exposed racks" look like safety barriers (or something similar).

5. I'm, sadly, going to bet those flimsy plastic suits aren't going to help much.
There are a lot of brave people that are going to die because of the radiation. What a shame!

6. I was thinking the same thing.
They're not wearing proper gear to match the severity of the situation. It's so sad.

7. Those plastic suits aren't really that flimsy. And they really do offer protection
from radiation. Depending on the type of radiation, of course.

8. Gamma radiation? Not a chance. Beta? Perhaps. Alpha? Yes.
Gamma radiation is what we're worried about in a nuclear disaster. It will kill a lot of these good people. And it's a goddamned shame.
