Fukushima Daiichi Radioactive Seawater Model, Spent Fuel Rods DID Explode Into Atmosphere
April 6th, 2011
ASR Limited, a marine consulting and research firm has released a radioactive seawater model that seems to confirm that radiation will spread throughout the pacific ocean. Remember, US and Japanese officials have gone on the record with their belief that radiation in the Pacific will not hurt sea life.
“On Monday, TEPCO began discharging 11,500 tons of contaminated water into the surrounding water – a serious development in the ongoing containment issues and release of radioactive material at TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant,” wrote ASR Limited in an article released Tuesday.
Meanwhile, a confidential document released by The New York Times has confirmed multiple aspects of this disaster that we reported from the beginning.
“Perhaps the worse news is confirmation that radioactive fragments and particles, including the deadly Plutonium “MOX” fuel, has been shot high into the atmosphere during the hydrogen explosions,” wrote Alexander Higgins, a blogger and frequent Intel Hub Contributor.
A quick rundown of the problems that are now admitted confirms what some in the alternative media have reported from the beginning.
- Measures taken to keep the plant stable have created a wide array of problems.
- The weight of the water injections have made the reactors vulnerable to ruptures during an aftershock.
- The release of hydrogen mixed with seawater raises the possibility of an explosion.
- The mixture of seawater with molten fuel is blocking fresh water from reaching and cooling the reactors.
- New explosions could lead to further breaches in the containment vessels resulting in a much more serious release of radiation as well as a radioactive mass that would stay molten for a very long period of time.
- Pouring water to cool the reactors may not be able to be sustained indefinitely
- Fragments and particles of nuclear materials may have blown up to one mile high in the sky.
- Radioactive material lying around the plant needed to be bulldozed over.
- Because of the wide array of complex problems in three different reactors, a successful outcome is less certain than ever.
- Reactor 1 is likely fully blocked from new water entering to cool it and most likely has no water in it at all.
- Similar problems exist in reactor 2 and 3 although blockage is less severe.
- The spent fuel rods pose an even greater potential for damage then the reactors themselves.
- The hydrogen explosion at reactor four is believed to have released a huge amount of radioactive material into the environment in what is referred to as a “major term release”.
- Spent fuel rods are being exposed directly to the environment as opposed to the reactors themselves which are still in their containment vessels.
