Nuclear Engineer: Why All Of A Sudden The Urgency At Fukushima Plant, What Do They Know? – They’re Obviously Feeling Pressure, Like It’s One Move Away From Checkmate


‘Checkmate’ = Fukushima reactor No. 4 SFP collapsing = The END (see related info down below.)

Nuclear Engineer: The question is, why all of a sudden the urgency at Fukushima plant, what do they know? — They’re obviously feeling pressure, like it’s one move away from checkmate (AUDIO) (ENENews, Nov 1, 2013):

Tim Alexander: Chris, we were talking on the break about they seem to be in a hurry now to move these rods… My question to you was if the No. 4 unit… goes critical, can it spread to the other ones — it can right?

Chris Harris, former licensed Senior Reactor Operator and engineer: Yeah, if you raise the neutron flux to extend out through Unit 3 let’s say, there will be an effect on there — I’m not sure what the state of their neutron absorbers in those pools. Can you imagine that, one pool going critical and then all of a sudden, elements in another pool going critical also? […]

The question is, why all of a sudden the urgency — what do they know? They had an earthquake there. But we know that even from North Anna’s earthquake that happened here a year and a half ago, was that it took weeks to assess the damage there. And that plant was actually fixable […]

They’re obviously feeling pressure, like they’re one move away from checkmate.

Fukushima: While No One Is Watching Humanity Faces The Most Dangerous Situation Ever

‘The Greatest Threat Humanity Has Ever Faced’: Fukushima Reactor No. 4 SFP ‘An Immediate Problem’ – Building Is Sinking, Over 30 Inches In Places:

The leakage of water from these cores is bad enough but the most dangerous thing is the cooling pool of unit 4. Now it is terribly dangerous because the entire hot core of reactor 4 had been removed and put in this cooling pool shortly before the tsunami. So, there was a hot core in this cooling pool the entire superstructure building was blown off in a hydrogen explosion.

The entire area is weakened and there is a great risk of an aftershock. Now this pool contains something on the order of 400.000 kg of hot plutonium. So, the thing that people should be aware of is that TEPCO is going to begin attempting to remove these rods from this pool to some other type of storage. This has never been done with plutonium rods that have been out of a core for such a short period of time.

There is a great danger of a thermonuclear reaction if these rods become exposed to the air and the cooling pool itself is just barely containing the temperature levels of the core as it is.

The media coverage of the situation has been almost non-existent. The public must become engaged and the governments must become engaged because this is a global threat. They say that one microgram of plutonium could theoretically kill a person.

There are billion micrograms in a kilogram and there are 400.000 hot kilograms in this pool. So, if these rods combust, if the set of rods begins a thermonuclear reaction, it will vaporize the water in the pool and the entire pool can become an uncontrolled nuclear reaction open to the air. These particles will be spread through the northern hemisphere.

This is perhaps the greatest threat humanity has ever faced. And I think you would acknowledge there has been far too little attention given to this at this point and the measures that the Japanese government is discussing at this point are not sufficient, I believe. Other governments must become engaged in this.

  1. The damn Japanese sat and did nothing for 31 months. “Everything is fine, we don’t need help……” Finally, they admit they need help after wasting over 31 months. They seem to believe that if they say something is fine long enough, it will become fact. Very childish magical thinking.
    I am so disgusted with them. They may well be the opening of Armageddon, and they offer free housing to pregnant women to move to Fukushima. Why in the Hell would anyone suggest such a thing? They are downright crazy.
    Tokyo isn’t that far from Fukushima. A couple of years ago, JPMorgan defaulted on the largest real estate deal in Japanese history……they understood the real estate would be toxic in Tokyo, and they were right.
    I hear the financial stations talk about the history of Japanese finances, it will be a growing concern, etc…..all ignore the Fukushima disaster that has continued to pour into our atmosphere, ocean, air, soil since March 11, 2011. I have never seen such denial. Japan’s debt level is now 200% of their GDP, they used to be great investors here in the US…….but now, they are trying to stay afloat.
    This may truly be the beginning of the end of the world.
    Thank you for covering it, most don’t dare.
