    Re: Nuclear meltdown likely underway in Japan!

    Here's a very good write-up on what is going on at Fukushima: Fukushima Nuclear Accident – a simple and accurate explanation « BraveNewClimate

    In reality, the plant was designed to withstand an earthquake of 8.0 or greater. It wasn't the earthquake that was the problem. It was the resulting tsunami that took out the generators powering the cooling system. The core did not melt down. The Zircaloy that encapsulates the Uranium started to melt, but the fuel itself is intact and contained.

    The article I linked clearly explains what happened and the impact, which environmentally is next to nothing. The impact will be it's going to take years to repair and retrofit the plant, which generates about 15% of Japan's power.

    Well the plants do power them self in a way but not the way you think. They simply put the power directly to the grid and then draw power from the grid but in the case of a loop they should have some very large backup diesel generators but maybe they lost their diesel tanks in the explosion idk.

    The generators that powered the cooling system when the plant lost electricity were destroyed by the tsunami that was a result of the earthquake.

    ...and my point above still stands. I was not siding with either opinion. None of us know what will happen. The people on the ground at the site do not know what will happen. I am just growing tired of people always talking in absolutes because they know a friend of a friend or they have read something on a web site.

    Japan works to contain nuclear threat after quake - Yahoo! News

    I hope we have seen the worst of it but I still say that no one really knows what is going to happen. Heard on the radio that they are asking the US for additional help.

    I saw an image collage from a bunch of American facebook status updates about how this is payback for Pearl Harbor, it puts my stomach in a knot really.

    I sincerely hope none of us here think like that.
