    mt1000, thanks, the gamma fireworks on the ISS live stream looks like the Fuku sparks.

    21:04 7-4 Futab Plant dark. Heavy mist in the air. I think the Futab has a filter. There're two shots one with the transmission tower and the other pointing toward the vent stacks. Normally, on a good cam day the pulsating red stop lights faintly reflect in the pavement of the shot toward the vent stacks. You have to squint hard to see them. Currently, I can not see the reflection so I think there is an event going on and someone has filtered the view. Horse's behind. No that's an insult to the horse's behind.

    22:08 JNN black. Anyone want to bet there's an event going on?

    Scratch my original estimates on fast jetstream particles arriving July 5-7 on the west coast of North America.

    The jetstream has stalled… Must be a normal summer slowdown. The front edge has barely budged past 165 degrees longitude since yesterday.

    But slower surface ocean winds will continue to bring the eruption radiation to the Americas over the next 10-15 days.

    Another Youtube clip covering the heroes of Chernobyl:

    Someday there will be video tributes to the workers of Fukushima. They have tried their best despite a lack of the government money and resources to have a fighting chance for success. Yes, it is probably so toxic that there is no hope to contain the radiations releases at Fukushima. But there are still workers trying their best despite virtually no hope for the longterm survival of not only their own lives, but the lives of millions of humans (perhaps billions) in the Northern Hemisphere.

    The nuclear and biological scientists knew for decades that one major rogue nuclear complex could kill the entire population of the Northern Hemisphere. But other scientists convinced politicians that meltdowns were physically impossible because of their safety measures. Fukushima has proven that thermonuclear war was never the biggest threat to humanity. It was the nuclear electric power industry. They won't stop their plants until more out of control meltdowns destroy cities and countries. Perhaps not even then. Nuclear extinction is deniable. We don't see it in the food and water or the wind, rain and snow that carries it everywhere.

    The human race in 500 years became too large in numbers and even worse, poor stewards of the earth. The blame stretches across centuries. The global consequences will be severe. It will be a bumpy ride down the mountain.
