There isn’t anybody out there who thinks that spent fuel is like a flat battery only made of uranium is there?

The radioactivity of new fuel rods consists of that emitted by the uranium. Or mix of Uranium and plutonium if its MOx.

After fission there are over 200 different fission products in the fuel rods as well. The spent fuel rods are very many times more radioactive than the new fuel rods.

The used or spent fuel rods are to radioactive that they get hot. Very hot and have to cooled. If they aren’t cooled successfully, they catch fire……….In Japan, where there is nowhere to store nuclear power plant waste, the spent fuel seems to be stored on site at the reactors.

    FYI: Remember many of the US Navy aircraft were found to have been contaminated with radioactive materials when they landed!

    Yet we have received little info on exactly by what and the levels of that contamination!

    The US Navy knows, since they have all the tools to measure radioactive pollution…

    RadNet – the EPA’s front-line­, radiologic­al detection network is severely flawed and suffers from maintenanc­e and reliabilit­y issues.

    The lack of consistent data and the number of units offline (a techie term for broken) at the time they were most needed shows that the EPA was not prepared for this emergency.

    The Nuclear “fix” was in from the beginning!
