NRC investigates reactor coolant system leak at Brunswick plant, News 14 Carolina, Nov. 16, 2011:

Energy officials and environmentalists are reacting to reports of a reactor coolant system leak at Progress Energy’s Nuclear Plant in Brunswick County. […]

Progress Energy spokesperson Ryan Mosier:

  • “We’re bringing the unit to a safe, stable position so we can find the leak, address it, and work to bring the unit back up”
  • Mosier said they believe radioactive water is leaking from the top of the vessel.

Tom Clements with Friends of the Earth, who tracks nuclear issues primarily in South Carolina and Georgia:

  • The unusual event report posted Wednesday morning plant grabbed his attention.
  • “The reason that is significant is because this type of reactor, a boiling water reactor, it goes directly through the core of the reactor, where the radioactive material is contained,” said Clements.

    Being in the electrical engineering industry for the last 12 years, I believe preventative maintenance to be highly important, if somewhat old fashioned…..

    However bean counters see it as a waste, and now a ‘fix it if it breaks’ policy has been adopted. Even for critical systems….

    Now I ask, WHY THE FUCK is preventative maintenance considered unimportant when fission reactors are concerned? no second chances and no fixes available. *sigh*

      Would you fly in a commercial airliner, if you found out that they skipped the 100 hour A, B and C scheduled maintenance checks?

      But just look around at the unmaintaned infrastructure in the US, it’s no better. Deferred maintenance costs thousands more than PM.

          Has anyone read the Stephen King novel titled “Under The Dome?” In addition to being a great read, it also brings the fact home that we are trapped on this big rock and it’s got limited resources! Meaning air, flora, fauna, water, land, etc. So, don’t shit where you live! Anyway, this novel has a happy ending…at least as happy as King’s stories ever end.

          I’m a huge sci-fi and horror book enthusiast from way way back. Started reading “Tales from the Crypt” comics when I was about 7 or 8. I used to think it was cool how fiction becomes reality so often. Now, it seems like the dystopian story lines are starting to come true as well. I’m talking about “Natures End” and WIlliam Gibson’s “Bridge Trilogy” with some Philip K. Dick thrown in for good measure.

          Any thoughts.

            Bad comparison. People fly bi-planes around. Anything can endure with care and proper maintenance. Years of neglect on an intricately complex reactor, with so many components is a different story. But absolutely most are reaching end of their design cycle. The plan is to maximize profits here, cmon folks. green backs mullah the dinero. Things are cash cows, nuclear energy is the cheapest form on energy available in commercial markets, by and far. Do you enjoy this computer your using or what?

              Check out Jules Verne and his book “from the earth to the moon.” He basically predicted how to get to the moon in 1865. His main difference was back then rockets were in their infancy, so he proposed a giant cannon. The cannon’s placement was debated between Florida and Texas, deciding Florida on its gulf coast, even giving it exact coordinates. It fired three men to the moon, and their plan was to splash down in the pacific

            • Nukes are most costly energy. Not cheapest like you claim. If it were truly cheap we would not be pouring billions of tax dollars into it because the private investors would be lined up around the block. The only way to cut costs in the short term is to cut corners… and that will always cost much more later when the accidents happen. And what ” cost” do we put on the kids with thyroid cancers? How many dollars per dead mother? How many Euro per sick father? How many beans do you count for every baby born with no eyes or hands attached at the shoulder? How much money will we get for selling our souls to the nuclear devil? In the end we will lose everything if we continue this way.

              • jdotg

                Andrew, you are saying that nukes are most costly in terms of non monetary values. Every nuclear plant has (required by law) a decommission fund, which no other generating stations have, which is in the hundreds of millions of dollars, for when the plant is taken off-line, this all combined together. They still aren’t the highest. Look to the sun for that.

                link disregards required Maintenance, which we know they shirk on. And is a big liability for us and them.

                I was talking about the price of energy, in the cost per megawatt. Next time I will be clear. Nuclear is king in this aspect. Nuclear, Hydro, Coal, Gas(methane or natural), Wind, Solar. In that order. (the link I provide shows wind being cheaper than coal) Personally don’t believe that to be the case today. 6 dollars a megawatt, then sold for 30. Hence why the industry cherishes these beasts. By the time a reactor reaches its design life cycle, it will have paid for itself and some. Cash Cow. Not to mention the NRC then doubles its life.

                http://nuclearfissionary.com/2010/04/02/comparing-energy-costs-of-nuclear-coal-gas-wind-and-solar/

                Lets be real here Andrew, where are these people being born with these horrid birth defects? Surely that would make the news. Oh thas right, you just made it up. And it appears you are a tad scared, radiation phobia seems to run rampant here.

            • These plants were brought on line with the idea to the public they would be decommissioned after their life cycle of 30 years or so,(this is why the decommission cost is in the kitty (in cost to operate) before the plant is brought on line) but the rubber stamping of permission to allow these plants to continue to operate with deterioration factors is deplorable !
              I am beginning to think like so many piggy banks, it has been robbed or never was there to decommission these plants and profit overrides the fact new plants should have been build to remain in a sort of safety limits !

Graham and McCain droned on and on about how any American Citizen believed to be engaging in terrorism against the US will be given into custody to the DOD as a prisoner of war. No lawyers, no court, Do Not Pass Go, Hello Guantanamo. This is even if the accused is taken within the US boarders. They actually said on CSPAN that any citizen who is an enemy of the US doesn’t deserve to have the privilege of Habeas Corpus. They also said it was proper for Guantanamo prisoners to be incarcerated indefinitely unless it could be guaranteed that they would not take further action against the US after being released. This includes any prisoner that is known to be innocent of any terrorist activities to this point.

          I was watching a video of Dr. Caldicott speaking a couple years ago. Apparently, she was a neighbor of the Cheney’s during the first administration. She said there is a bunker under the VP residence. I imagine there are plenty of maintained refuges in DC. Too bad they forgot public service notices for the rest of us. The old Civil Defense Manuals are very easy to find, but they all are geared toward a thermonuclear bomb attack not this low to mid level long term fallout. I did find some US Gov manuals from 2009 -2011 that deal exclusively with melt-down scenarios. I am still digesting this information. Amazon Kindle Store Search “radiation” “radioisotope” “nuclear”…there is just tons of industrial documentation available. Don’t bother with the docs written for the general population. Though there is some useful info, it doesn’t give the detail needed to truly understand what we’re dealing with. I’m done with reading between the lines and soft cells.

    USA BLAMES LESS KIDS ON ECONOMY. NOT NUCLEAR MELTDOWN!!!

    ATLANTA (AP) β€” The economy may well be the best form of birth control.
    U.S. births dropped for the third straight year β€” especially for young mothers β€” and experts think money worries are the reason.
    A federal report released Thursday showed declines in the birth rate for all races and most age groups. Teens and women in their early 20s had the most dramatic dip, to the lowest rates since record-keeping began in the 1940s. Also, the rate of cesarean sections stopped going up for the first time since 1996. cont:

    • I am encouraging every young person i can to NOT have children specifically beacause of Japan. Bobby1 u have the Butchers Bill for the death toll rise since fuku blew?

      • Bobby1

        The excess deaths in the US are near 42,000 now. The link is in the Fukushima anomalies thread.

        I am getting uncomfortable with doing this analysis. Usually when I analyze datasets, I either am involved in collecting the data, or I know and trust who it was that did. It is trivially easy to fake the mortality numbers.

        • Bobby1

          Also the CDC, which publishes the morbidity and mortality data, has the #1 radiation testing lab in the US. If anyone knows about radiation in food and water, it’s them. But not a peep from them about contamination.

    • jdotg

      Maybe you’ve been spun too much.

      What nuclear melt down can be attributed to birth declines in 2010? Did you read the article?

      :With the 2010 figures, suspicion has turned into certainty.:

      Bit of a stretch to think fuku radiation can travel back in time.

      • surprisingly enough, this toxic nuke mess started long before Fukushima. there are plenty of pre-fuku reasons to curb conception. it’s not just about declines in birth rates either, but the known and unknown numbers of living beings effected AFTER they are born

          Dear Chem: If you’re implying that it’s a great idea for humans to stop breeding, nearly completely, you’re right. We’re way beyond carrying capacity ecologically speaking. In addition, breeding by humans in the so-called First World (“first” at what? parasitism? unsustainable extraction/exploitation of finite resources and other humans elsewhere?), economic center, the old term “alligned, nations are the most destructive absolutely to the environment, even if their 4000-square foot domiciles are built to LEED specifications or even made of straw-bale or some other appropriately “green” construction. No matter. The cost of raising a child in the U.S. is far more than 40x what it costs to raise a child at a subsistence level outside of the core nations, which though I do not romanticize this sort of life, it is the only kind of careful use of resources to which humans could justify “entitlement” in terms of resource usage. Of course living in a subsistence way is only possible with cooperation and sharing based policies that don’t look at the most greedy humans as successful.

Unfortunately until some other form is able to produce power cheaper than Nuclear, we will have to deal with it and it’s horrors. Also stated before, they are winning. Especially, when people on main street are clueless to the dangers. And label people who do worry about the dangers, as nut jobs. Says enough about your battle.

            “The neighbors already are all for it, with their cheap electricity bill. Money talks.”

            Then your sheeple neighbours still couldn’t get their head around the fact that they pay for nukes with their taxes, not their electricity bill.

            I guess they’ll learn, but hopefully not the hard way.

              Exelon (EXC) currently owns about 20% of the United States nuclear fleet. This makes EXC the largest nuclear owner/operator in the United States and the third largest in the world.

              In 2006, the U.S. nuclear industry( AS A WHOLE) received an estimated $1.2 billion in federal subsidies. With majority of those subsidies going to fusion research and clean up efforts. Granted this is 5 years old, but I havent seen any new reactors in America come on-line.

              http://www.window.state.tx.us/specialrpt/energy/subsidies/index.php#nuke

              Now this is assuming all those subsidies went to Exelon. They (exelon alone, remember this is only 20% of US nuke power) then used their nuclear ATM to make 10 times that amount of cash in 2006.

              http://dividendmonk.com/exelon-corporation-exc-dividend-stock-analysis/

              Revenue: 2006–$15.6 billion

              So no clearly they are making money somehow, via electricity sold, you know cause thats what they do and all. Produce and Supply.

        Unless we also know the number of abortions for same periods, we cannot say whether or not the the economic crisis is the culprit.

    • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

      Dear Tacoma: Yours is an excellent point as birth rates don’t go down for “economic” reasons in countries that also have strong evidence of dumbing down or just coincidental reductions in average literacy. U.C. Berkeley, Dr. Steven West, says our literacy rate in the U.S. is perhaps at around 50%. I believe you’re right that there is no way that the socioeconomics have anything to do with the lower birth rate.

      • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

        I agree that it definitely has something to do with increased radiation, but also agree with Datura and others that it may ,also have to do with GMO ingestion, added to the usual bioaccumulated toxic chemicals and mineral legacies with which all modern humans walk around. One would hope that the sharp differences, in the past 8 or 9 mos. in birth rates, healthy pregnancies, childhood health will make it clear that ingested (eaten or breathed in mainly) radionuclides are far more of a threat than those things we’ve become completely jaded/accustomed to and do nothing about, save for non-revolutionary consumer-based organic or raw food choices.

    I agree with the view previously expressed by some commentators on this site, that the Fukushima disaster is not the unfortunate result of a an unforeseen natural event: rather, it is the inevitable outcome of an unsound policy, criminal negligence, falsifying of data, etc, and most of all, the irreparable aging and decay of a 40 / 50 years old industry much too weak to handle the type of long term hazard involved and which has reached its breaking point: AND THEREFORE, IT IS PROBABLY THE FIRST DISASTER TO TRIGGER INTERNATIONAL ANXIETY IN A CONTINUOUS STRING OF CATASTROPHIC FAILURES THAT HAVE BEEN OCCURING AND ARE BOUND TO CONTINUE TO OCCUR.

    Aha,

    My suspicions having been aroused for a while, I’ve now got something to say. If I were a betting man, I’d say all these reports of nuclear accidents (Idaho, Va, NC), the clouds over Europe, are deliberate.

    Why?

    To conceal the fact that Fukushima is simply massive and covering the entire Northern Hemi., as so many have been saying all along, and this gives them cover to blame something else.

    I know people will call this crazy, but so what.

      I meant to say earlier that I admit I’m new to following nuclear news, so maybe these accidents occur all the time, which wouldn’t surprise me, given the competency of most humans, but then again that would completely devastate the arguments in favor of nuclear power in the first place, and that’s really why my suspicions are aroused by all the so-called accidents and/or mysterious releases!

        Once they put the current policy in place of lies,minimizing,deceiving,and milking their favorite “cash cow” with the deep pockets who saved for a “rainy day” such as this-they have to keep up their mission of allowing harm to befall those who will succumb-sooner or later-to the toxic crap we keep getting douched with every time one of those ancient combination of rusty,over-sized erector sets & tinker toys patched up with JB Weld & whatever’s left of the glue they must’ve been huffing out of a paper bag when they built & designed the fountains of death spraying their shit across the planet!! They will maintain their lie until we all die or they make their goal firmly in the top of the “1%”!! They can’t,won’t, or in the case of some who still feel a faint thump of a heartbeat among the soul-less,vultures who can’t even chew gum & walk at the same time,much less handle affairs of public concern & safety!! They’ll continue this charade and impose the will of despicable people with more money than common-sense who thinkn they’re better than anyone else-but in reality they might be wearing a suit that cost’s as much my car did new,and yet they still got a brown stripe in their drawers like many a common man(mine are new,but give it time,LOL)!!That shitstripe in their drawers will be radioactive like evryone elses too!!So a bunch of idiots make one last “run” to get rich off our misery and where are the fools gonna spend it??!!LOL! If society/civilization goes down-they go down too!So what good is their “blood money”if it becomes as worthless as the paper it’s printed on?-I’m getting some sleep if my blood pressure drops enuff to allow it!!Mad as a Hatter!!lol…

        • TMI… Gundersen also offered compelling evidence based on pressure monitoring data from the plant that shortly before 2 p.m. on March 28, 1979 there was a hydrogen explosion inside the TMI containment building that could have released significant amounts of radiation to the environment. The NRC and industry to this day deny there was an explosion, instead referring to what happened as a “hydrogen burn.” But Gundersen noted that affidavits from four reactor operators confirm that the plant manager was aware of a dramatic pressure spike after which the internal pressure dropped to outside pressure; he also noted that the control room shook and doors were blown off hinges. In addition, Gundersen reported that while Metropolitan Edison would have known about the pressure spike immediately from monitoring equipment, it didn’t notify the NRC about what had happened until two days later. …

    When 3/11/11’s full impact is known & understood by its global victims and is properly declared “The World’s Greatest Catastrophe in Human History”-the losers who are guilty of varying levels of complicity for their part in the events before,during and following each new revelation that comes out will begin to be held accountable for their actions and I’m betting that there will be as many “vigilante” actions in response as there will be trials,including “high crimes & treason”,or whatever the equivalent charges are coined in the free countries who would all recognize the acts attributed to the handling of the event-“regardless of its cause”! Let’s face it-they are scared of what people will do when they find out what the governments did to them,just like the industry who has them in their pockets (for now)-and they should be scared!! When you consider what 3/11 event “uncovered” about the nuclear industry and how deep this shit really runs-they are backed into a corner and even those “neutral”,or “rookie” politicians & Fed,agency officials,etc.-were “skooled” in the underhanded,unspoken rules and became flush with dirty money,or “whatever” it took to either get them on board actively,or by default for “sitting this one out”while letting the “old hand’s” better suited & experienced when it comes to bullshitting the people who somehow let the assholes slip through into positions that they never realized(and still don’t)just how badly playing “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” in the voting booth would quite literally have become a life or death decision!Start scrambling MF’ers!Shred,burn,forge & “misplace”those incriminating documents & dig & barricade your little rabbit holes like Saddam did ‘cuz the son’s,brother’s,parent’s & people in the military won’t turn on their own people here in this country when they’re given orders to turn the “business end” of their weapons on their fellow “citizen-victims” when the…

        Hi JohnnyBlade!

        There’s going to some military that will follow orders. Also, there are plenty of contract soldiers that wouldn’t think twice about rounding Americans up. Our domestic Police Departments are so militarized now, it’s not hard to imagine actions being carried out like OWS evictions/clean-ups the past few days. They don’t work for us (general population) anymore.

  • I was holding out on buying some type of Geiger cunter to use here in San Diego. I felt safe being relatively south of the carnage. However with all the NEGATIVE reports on our own, good ol’ American reactors going on the fritz..HELP! Where is MY dosimeter?
