UNREAL: Exactly what happened at Fukushima is going on at a NJ nuclear plant, except...
When it's only timing, and a roll of the dice that saves you... it's time to FUCKING RE-THINK IT:

ARNIE GUNDERSEN:

It’s always a bad sign when I’m back for a second time in a case like this. The worst plant is the plant that we singled out yesterday on Democracy Now!, which is Oyster Creek. Oyster Creek was very close to where the eye of the hurricane crossed into New Jersey, and initially it lost all of its emergency sirens, which isn’t unexpected in the event of all this wind. But then, afterward, it actually had to declare an emergency because the tidal surge was very high. It was—they were within six inches of flooding the pumps that cool the nuclear reactor. Those are called service water pumps, and they’re right out on Barnegat Bay. So they had to declare an emergency, and they had no sirens to announce an emergency if the situation had gotten worse.

Several other plants have shut down—Indian Point, Nine Mile Point, another one down in New Jersey, Salem. And, of course, reports are still coming in. The ones that shut down did go to their diesels to cool. Of course, the problem is that Salem and the Oyster Creek plant, which we just talked about, were in a refueling mode. And what that means is that all of the nuclear fuel is not in the nuclear reactor, it’s in the spent fuel pool. And when you lose off-site power, you can’t cool the fuel pool. So I suspect in the next couple days we’re going to see reports of, you know, the fuel pools heating up, as—because they were unable to cool the spent fuel pool.

I think we’ll continue to see power outages, not local power outages where a city goes down, but where the grid goes down. When that happens, a power plant has to shut down. So, for the next day or so, we’ll see grid disruptions that will cause nuclear plants to shut down. That’s what happened at Indian Point. And when the grid shuts down, that’s called loss of the—of off-site power. And the diesels turn on and provide the power to the plant to keep it cool while the grid is down. So, hopefully, the—when these plants lose their power over the next couple of days, we’ll see the diesels turn on. And it’s likely, but not for sure, the diesels will turn on.

Fukushima all over again.


Its no use thinking these disasters are too rare to happen.


NUke plants need to be built to withstand more than they currently do.
That is obvious.

if i were designing a nuke plant today, i would build it to withstand a 9.5 earthquake, simultaneous with a 50ft tusnami, and or 200mph CAT5 hurricane winds, and at least 1 month of backup diesel generator power if off site power goes down.

But then again, i wouldnt even build one of these outdated dangerous things, i would build a thorium reactor.

Granted we dont have the tech yet, but we need to obtain it!

If we could only travel back in time to know what these people were thinking back in the day when these nuclear plants were built at these crazy locations. It's a disaster waiting to happen. It's inevitable.
