Noone in authority is saying a word or has said a word about this ever since the molten goo started to move. First we got “cold shut down successful”, then we got “Oh decay heat”, then we got (in Australia at least) “the Explosions are normal”, perfectly safe, but it would take 20, then 30 then 40 years to dismantle and remove the wreckage and clean up the site. (Move to where? Back to GE headquarters?)
Meanwhile, ever since the failure of the cooling systems, the corium has existed. It vents into the atmosphere and ocean and contaminates the ground.
I have been waiting for some official authority to clearly and without bullshit explain where the molten goo, which used to be part of the reactor fuel core from each afflicted reactor, actually is and what it actually doing, what it is actually venting in the air ground and sea. This disclosure has not occurred.
Given this official ignorance and failure to disclose, it is fair enough to explore what people who are not paid authorities of the relevant agencies have found, seen, claim and speculate.
Everyone with an interest in the population has been discussing the corium issue. Everyone that is except those who are paid by the population to know, disclose and report such matters.
I aked Andrew at nuclearcrimes.org for his thoughts on the matter. Andrew replied:
” “I don’t know of any sources that claim to know where the corium is, however, I’ve heard U.S./Japan has some sophisticated sub-particle/cosmic ray detector they expect will be able to tell where it is, and they’ve already put it at the plant to see if it basically can work; they’ll try the real test sooner or later.”
The majority view is, I think, that authorities still do not know the actual disposition of the corium. And they are not talking.
The extent of radionuclide release from the corium into air, land and sea is not officially disclosed.
Capt D. Has commented: “The corium(s) are doing their ow thing and will be the basis of a new branch of nuclear physics that is being “discovered” in Japan as we speak because of what is now going on at Fukushima!
My gut feeling is that as these corium(s) interact with the ground water and salts many new and or short lived radionuclides will be found, perhaps adding to this list:
* Cesium 137 accumulate s in fatty tissues, liver, spleen
* Iodide-131 accumulate s in Thyroid, breast and ovaries
* Strontium- 90 concentrates in your bones and liver
* Barium-140 causes bone tumors up to 30 years later
* Tellurium- 132 causes cell mutations, repeatedly via replication
* Yttrium-0 damage to liver and respiration
* Plutonium- 244 concentrates in your liver
* Uranium 235 accumulates in your bones and liver
All this information will be (kept secret) closely held, especially if the Japanese had a secret nuke component lab at Fukushima, as many believe!”
Absolutely many believe Pu separation from spent fuel rods was occurring at the Fukushima nuke plant.
In terms of secrets, the US Atomic Energy Act and associated regulations and laws prohibit the public discussion of matters related to “special nuclear material”.
I guess the coriums must be pretty special. If anyone wants a citation or source for this statement, let me know and I’ll write another 50 page essay full of references.
Nuke is a bigger threat to democracy than communism ever was. No Bull.
