Transcript for Exclusive Arnie Gundersen Interview: The Dangers of Fukushima Are Worse and Longer-lived Than We Think, Chris Martenson, June 3, 2011:

[...] Now, Unit 3 has another problem and the NRC mentioned it yesterday for the first time and it gets back to that saltwater and the effect on iron. They are afraid that the reactor bottom will break, literally just break right out and dump everything. Because it’s now hot and it’s got salt on it and it’s got the ideal conditions for corrosion. So the big fear on Unit 3 is that it will break at the bottom and whatever else remains in it, which could be the entire core, could fall out suddenly. [...]

            Very humble and realistic is the senior group’s offer, and very courageous. Of course, Japan will need many more volunteers if they get the time to work, given the volatile situation. Russia had it figured out down to seconds for 600,000 volunteers but they knew if they did not do something, Minsk would be flattened and Europe rendered uninhabitable. Arnie’s expert wisdom pleads the Japanese to build a huge moat, NOW! Build it 60 feet deep and 4-1/2 feet wide around the entire plant and fill it with Zeolite to contain the underground water seeping out. Each typhoon that comes in will, again, flood all the tunnels and disperse more radiation into the ground and ocean, eventually creating disaster in the decommissioned no’s 5 and 6 reactors (helping no 4 to topple, too). They can pump/filter water and spray dust inhibitor all they want but the most dangerous jobs are hidden and currently unmitigated. Where is Zatoichi, ‘The Blind Cane Swordsman’ when you need him?

            I hope to see Japan healthy again but it won’t happen without money, sacrifice, and hutzpah. The senior group’s offer and pressure from anti-nuclear protests are a good start. In this situation, time can degrade all good intentions. Protest to ‘Build a Moat NOW!’ while you still have a chance.

    ANYONE WANNA SEE A NICE REPORT ABOUT HOW
    MUCH TRASH WAS IN THE SPENT FUEL POOLS PONDS.
    a tepco report from last year : )

    http://www.nirs.org/reactorwatch/accidents/6-1_powerpoint.pdf

    The situation is similar in Japan. A medium-term storage facility for waste from Fukushima Daiichi being built in the small village of Mutsu in northern Japan is not scheduled to open until 2012.The plan had been for that facility to hold 20 years worth of spent fuel.
    A longer-term and controversial plan to build a uranium enrichment and reprocessing plant at nearby Rokkasho has also faced repeated delays and technical difficulties in a project that dates
    back to the early 1990s.

    More than 60% of the uranium stored at Fukushima Daiichi made it through the quake and tsunami without being destabilized because it was kept in a separate pool built in 1997 and in a number of metal casks that do not rely on outside power, Japanese nuclear safety officials said.

    But the location of the remaining fuel storage pools – on the highest floor of the reactor buildings – exposed the fuel to additional risks because the pools would have swayed more in the quake and could have lost water through sloshing or leaks, experts say.
    As workers at the plant scramble to restore power to the plant and test pumps and other safety equipment, the main focus of the safety response has been to keep water in the storage pools by shooting sprays of water from a hastily assembled battalion of high-powered fire trucks.

    The water in the pools serves as both a coolant and a barrier to radiation. When the zirconium cladding on the fuel rods is exposed to air, it can erupt into flames.

    Pushing The Limits
    Fukushima Daiichi had over time been pushing the limits of the plant’s capacity to store uranium fuel on site, according to a Tokyo Electric presentation from November 2010 and now circulating among safety experts and environmental critics.

      Pushing The Limits
      Fukushima Daiichi had over time been pushing the limits of the plant’s capacity to store uranium fuel on site, according to a Tokyo Electric presentation from November 2010 and now circulating among safety experts and environmental critics.

      The Tokyo Electric researcher who prepared that presentation on the safety of spent fuel at the complex, Yumiko Kumano, could not be reached for comment. A spokesman for TEPCO declined to comment on its fuel storage decisions and whether they contributed to the crisis.

      “Our focus now is on responding to the situation at Fukushima,” he said.

      The TEPCO presentation noted that the utility had taken steps to increase storage capacity for spent fuel at the plant complex beyond its original design. Those included “re-racking” the pools in the reactor buildings to increase their capacity and then building a separate large, pool outside and a separate hub of metal casks that do not need to rely on electricity.

      But the only significant open space left for storage remained inside the reactor buildings, according to the document. TEPCO had the capacity to more than double the number of fuel assemblies stored in the reactors from 3,998 at the time of the quake to 8,310 assemblies.

      “They were headed for dense pack and that would have made the situation even worse,” said Frank von Hippel, a Princeton University physicist and former U.S. adviser on nuclear security risks in the Clinton administration.

      An official with Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, who asked not to be named because he was not speaking on behalf of regulators in a formal capacity, said officials would have to review safety policies on storing fuel inside reactor buildings. “This is something that we are going to have to look at after what’s happened,” he said.

      I wondered that too at first. But looking around the net at technical anti-nuke sites, its only “luck” that this happened in Japan and not in the USA. Every year both Japan and the USA suffer nuke accidents that by dumb luck don’t do any “major” damage. This time the luck ran out. Its that constant series of cost cutting, lack of maintenance, and sloppiness that makes me think this was inevitable, and took the powers that be by surprise. If a private company knows that he government will pick up the bill when things go wrong, then safety won’t get a look in. The disaster was inevitable, its good to see Germany learned from it, but amazing to see that the US and Aus want to continue with their plans to build more of these time bombs.

    management of spent fuel rods is quite challenging. A U.S. Nuclear Regulatory fact sheet [1] states that after storage
    in a cooling pool for 10 years the surface radioactivity of a spent fuel assembly is still about 10,000 rem/hour. A 500
    rem dose delivered to a whole person in a single exposure is fatal. Close proximity to a single 10-year-old spent fuel

Without protective shielding, the fuel’s intense radioactivity can kill a person exposed directly to it within minutes or cause cancer in those who receive smaller doses.

  • ****Spent fuel assemblies are typically kept on cooling pools for ten years, but after as little as five years in the cooling pools, fuel rod assemblies can be packed into massive sealed casks. Casks are approximately nine feet in diameter and 20 feet tall with walls of steel and concrete for radiation shielding [5]. Casks can each contain 20-50 spent fuel assemblies. The sealed casks are pressurized with helium that circulates passively through cooling fins to dissipate the heat generated by the contained spent fuel [6]. It is uncertain how casks are monitored for rising temperatures or radiation leakage.
    Casks weigh upward of 120 tons. The Connecticut Yankee plant was cited by the NRC in recent years for dropping a
    loaded 180 ton dry cask 4 inches onto a concrete surface. [7]. Should a deep geological repository ever be developed,
    safe transport of these massive casks to the repository will be a daunting undertaking.***

  • ***The toxic “life span” of spent nuclear fuel is about one million years [6], and this is one of the basic design parameters to be considered when developing a permanent high level waste storage site according to US law. Thus, owners of nuclear reactors are essentially required to manage this most hazardous of all man-made wastes, forever, and certainly well beyond the final shutdown and decommissioning of a plant. If new reactors are built in the future as desired by proponents of nuclear power, the prospects of accelerating accumulation of this million-year waste is truly
    overwhelming. Just as the costs of the total life cycle of doing so are effectively unlimited, the risk of a devastating accident involving a cooling pool becomes steadily more likely.***

I feel strongly about misstatments miss quotes and miss charaterastions. In Jim’s ramble I find his reference to be one of hubris and typecasting but not without cause. I think any Country that bombs its neibhor when not engaged in armed conflict would have to be acting on a perception of great evil, Satan if you will. Jim is I think caught up, understandably, in the horror of the story. Not the best of journalism. About the recent history and current management of that hotly contested strip of land occupied by the only nuke armed, non-participant to non-proliferation, theocratic and apartheid government in that neighborhood; it still looks like the Stern Gang project. From all that I have seen in the ebbs and flows of justice, little has changed since then except a bigger program and better PR. A lovely idea but execution seems designed to cause and perpetuate conflict. Again thanks for being here with us in this community.

    I have been struggling with myself for weeks now about whether to mention what I know about HAARP. I brought it up on another site and was viciously attacked. A few years ago, I decided to come out with it on Coast to Coast radio but was cut off. George Noory was surprised and said the call was obviously cut off from an outside source. I’ve hesitated because there were repercussions earlier when I tried to go public and I didn’t want to put my family in danger.

    Maybe I will just do this…I am an eye witness to multiple events and so is my family and a friend. There were eight of us. Frankly, I can’t prove it because we took no photos out of fear of further pressure, but I will tell you…HAARP is real and more dispersed than most people think.

    This all happened 11 years ago. When I was researching to see if others knew what we knew (no evidence that anyone did) we came across a congressional report from the nineties reporting that congress okayed weather control experiments on our domestic population. Since then, that information has been removed.

      Dutchsinse is ready to testify before congress. All of his findings are documented. So, there is one person who is exposing it. Did you have black hawk helicopters flying over your house per chance?

        No, we actually saw things so unbelievable, that my family has never been tempted to share watching multiple events of tornadoes actually being created and steered to specific spots.

        I keep telling myself to keep my mouth shut because I don’t want them to do to us what they did when I tried to go public. My children were terrified. But now, I believe we are under attack and I can’t help but at least come out and say, HAARP is real and not just in Alaska.

          You know what? I’m just flat out mad. So I’m going to at least tell you guys where this happened. We lived on a ranch right over the hill from Area 51 in Nevada. They had HAARP there which didn’t surprise me. When I worked for Lockheed in what was called “The Black Hole”, once we had our technology working, it went to Area 51 for testing.

          They weren’t very good at first but over a period of about 3 years, we saw them improve their methods until it looked more realistic and not so fake. We have personal experience at how good they are at steering them.

      “I have been struggling with myself for weeks now about whether to mention what I know about HAARP”

      Why have you struggled? Because you know it’s complete and utter nonsense. HAARP exists. However, it is not made for fantastic man-made doom. HAARP, Chemtrails? Oh please.

      “A few years ago, I decided to come out with it on Coast to Coast radio”

      Well, there you have it. “Coast to Coast radio, your one-stop source for all your tin foil hat needs”. It’s entertainment. Why does no one get this?

      Dutchsinse? Enjoying his 15 minutes of Youtube fame, based on the same premise. Freak people out, and they will listen. It’s entertainment. People enjoy being scared. It’s amazing to me how people buy into his videos that suggest easily explained radar artifacts are somehow associated with an evil conspiracy to drive tornados into towns like Joplin, MO. Do you really think the Government would murder it’s own citizens that blatantly? OMG, get a grip people. Are you all high?

        Major Domo,

        I have long suspected that you were a disinfo agent. You have played it very smart…acting like you are all on-board so that you can have more influence when it seems very important. And let me tell everyone, this is something the government does not want out because as far as I can tell, eight people are the only ones who saw certain things and my family was threatened and more because of what we know.
        May I ask a question? Why not go after the people who bring this subject up all the time, like in this thread above? Why just me? I know the answer, and so do the disinfo agents.

          I’m no more disinfo agent than I am the President of the Unites States of America. Nevadan, don’t consider my comments a personal attack, they are not. My comments stem from a desire keep the topics on this board, on-topic. There are more than enough sites out there that discuss BS. This site was created to discuss a real tragedy, one which has the potential to affect all life on the planet. Fukushima.

          Anyone who buys into the nonsense, that is the REAL disinformation, please consider this.

          “The world has enough real problems, without us needing to invent new ones”

          Please quote me on that.

          There is more than enough evidence to support that extraordinary weather events, Earthquakes, etc., are due to natural phenomenon, unintentional human influences, or more likely, a combination of both.

          @ Anna – Yes, Dutchsinse ends most of his videos with “There you have it folks.” It’s called the power of suggestion. What are we to conclude from that suggestion? It’s clear to me that he’s suggesting something well beyond the truth.

          Bash away, I can take it ;)

            I don’t want to bash away on you at all. I’ve just been kick’n it Down Under for years and then I moved up to North America and I see the blue sky is gone and I say, “Wow, what is all this shit in the air?” I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a group of people that were called Conspiracy Theorists. It’s all new to me. Now, when I see these planes just dropping mega tons of this on us everyday, because I have a brain, I want to know what it is. Then one thing leads to another and all things are connected and there you have it folks. LOL No, just kidding.

            I don’t think Dutchsinse is doing the power of suggestion, simply, because he has loved watching the weather and has started seeing interesting things. He actually says when he sees things, “Hmm, look at that. I don’t know what that is but, that is new” or “that is interesting.”

            Sooooo, what does this all have to do with this site? Because the rain brings radioactivity down on us and many of us have been the unfortunate recipients of STATIONARY storms that last for weeks that just don’t blow off to the east like they should. The weather is being manipulated and it is being manipulated against us. Why not HAARP the ocean and bring it down out there?

            And so as to stay on topic I want to say that I wish all the best to the people of Japan and also I am so grateful to the selfless reactor workers who are sacrificing there health and even their lives to save the world. Words are not enough to thank them.

        I did not start this conversation. It was being discussed for a long time before I decided to share this.

        When I came out with a little of this info on another site, the disinfo agents swarmed me in droves. So anyone who says what you are saying, even though you are being much more polite about it, I will call you a disinfo agent. The odds are, if the government took the trouble to cut the lines when I was on Coast to Coast, they will make sure disinfo agents come here to try and derail an eye witness to what they are doing to our country…and probably Japan.

        I won’t be shut down this time people. So don’t try. And I would appreciate all those of you who have discussed HAARP so much on this site to support my right to come clean with a little of what I know. Don’t be afraid of the disinfo agents.

          Well put, Nevadan

          I always keep in mind a dictum I discovered on a site that is now seemingly and heavily under attack by Bwitish MI5-6, namely the 911forum.org.uk. There’s a poster on there who keeps getting banned, over and over again, for pointing this dictum out – it goes like this (dons anti-cognitive dissonance tin foil hat):-

          “We Will Lead Every Revolution Against Us!”

          This dictum was coined by the instigator of Zionism – one Theodr Herzl – check him out if you haven’t heard the name before. Isn’t it sick? They mean it though as recent events over the last 40 years clearly demonstrate!

          As for HAARP – even the EU Parliament got seriously alarmed about it as you (or someone here) have already pointed out – so it’s no conspiracy theory. The only aspect of it that is conjecture is what its really capable of, IMO.

          As for this site, whether it’s an IP collector with devious motives or not, so long as all the important links are archived locally, it really doesn’t matter, as since the Patriot Acts, we are all guilty until proven innocent – just like in the 3rd Reich.

            Thank you for your post. I came here this morning even though I’m usually too busy Sunday mornings, because I knew the disinfo agents would not be able to leave this alone. They really come unglued when I tell even the little bit of my story that I do.

            This morning, from what I have read, they have sent in their really professional people with language and psychological skills to sway people. I wonder how many of the regulars here will be swayed? I knew I was taking a chance when I spoke up yesterday, and wondered if I would be done. The reason I posted so much was that I was determined to not be shut up for the first time. So, again, thank you.

            Notice to government trolls: If you try to hurt my family again, I will go public with the whole story and trust me, you don’t want that.

      • I vote we rename the beast to the High Altitude Auroral Research Project.

        http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/haarp/gen.html

        [It's actually a real project. Whether it can or has been used to trigger earthquakes (and other questionable things) - e.g. used in conjunction with mining operations where this has occurred accidentally or carelessly - might be for another forum].

        Program Purpose

        HAARP is a scientific endeavor aimed at studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defense purposes.

        The HAARP program is committed to developing a world class ionospheric research facility consisting of:

        The Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high power transmitter facility operating in the High Frequency (HF) range. The IRI will be used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere for scientific study.

        A sophisticated suite of scientific (or diagnostic) instruments that will be used to observe the physical processes that occur in the excited region.
        Observation of the processes resulting from the use of the IRI in a controlled manner will allow scientists to better understand processes that occur continuously under the natural stimulation of the sun.

        Scientific instruments installed at the HAARP Observatory will be useful for a variety of continuing research efforts which do not involve the use of the IRI but are strictly passive.

        Among these studies include ionospheric characterization using satellite beacons, telescopic observation of the fine structure in the aurora, and documentation of long-term variations in the ozone layer.
