    You ever get the feeling that the earth is trying to shake us off like fleas on a dog.

    Expect spikes in both Iodine and Ceaseum levels. I wonder when these spikes occur if it is from the piles of corium in the bottoms of the reactor buildings being disturbed or if more fuel falls out of the remnants of the core onto and into the corium blobs at the bottom of the reactor buildings? Anyone have an idea?

      There may be several models to use for the mind to better understand why this is happening. My favorite is this….If you ever had an ant farm when you were a kid you might be able to appreciate this one. The ants work day and night to make their little tunnels and find a stable environment in the limited space they have to work with. Then comes along some freckled faced, snotty nose punk who shakes the farm up real good. The ant all work their way to the surface and they are quite animated and energized when they do. All that energy has to go somewhere. Fortunately, that snotty nosed kid was protected by the plastic sheild.

      Since we are now in the second week of these series of steam explosions/earthquakes, it seems to me that we are not going to have that hydrovolcanic explosion, just a series of low ground earthquakes until the support structures of SPF 4 are shaken to bits. Then it will be all over. For the Northern Hemisphere.

      You are right to suspect spikes in radiation. Coming up with the steam.


      • Are these after shocks, fore shocks, or something completely new and different, like corium melting through the Earth, triggering earthquakes and/or exploding underground?

        Since no one knows where these multiple 65 ton corium blobs are, and the company did absolutely NOTHING to stop these out of control radioactive blobs from going down into the ground, I would expect some consequences from this…

        We may not like what is going to happen.

        But on a positive note, if we get direct evidence that this IS due to corium blobs, and it causes the whole FUKU complex to collapse, exposing the whole world to a huge FUBAR, then maybe the coverup effort will collapse under the sheer weight of BILLIONS of people getting sick and dying GLOBALLY, all at the same time.

        With that kind of suffering, maybe the whole world will wake up to the insanity of nuclear energy, nuclear weapons, and anything nuclear at all… But then again, maybe they will succeed with this coverup and like an addict in deep denial, we will have to wait for the next BIGGER calamity, maybe the Carrington Effect?

        Time to wake up!

      cesium has a melting point not that much higher than human body temperature. Cesium atoms that form in solid corium will not quickly release. However, as the corium melts in areas the and iodine wcesium in those areas will start coming out like when a shaken bottle of rootbeer is opened especially when the corium is high above cesiums melting point.

      Some of the spikes may be related to lack of proper thermal management. Also, times of reduced release may sometimes be related to cooling such as after a large evaporation or drenching

      Yes, everyone gets to share. Anyone thinking they can evade this mess by fleeing to the Southern Hemisphere is bound to be disappointed.

    What I left out is that small pieces of the corium are leaking out, like from a tube of toothpaste – see pictures of the corium coming out of the pipes at Chernobyl – and those small pieces are hitting the groundwater, which in Japan is heavy in Radon.

      Yea I envision a spattering of melted pockets from the reactor 3 explosion and other spent fuel pools simmering over a wide area and the corium finding cracks and slowing reaching out to each other. Who knows what is happening there and the info provided by TIpco is …..can’t think of an appropriate term hmmm questionable at the very least.

    Re all of these quakes, so strangely centered under the plants, what about the possibility of HAARP being used to trigger them?
