    I don’t see the evidence there… Where is the fire? The “smoke” may be steam as we are used to seeing every day. Hard to tell by night with this back-light.

    Steam is lighter than air and goes up. This smoke is heavy and slides sideways with little rise. Clearly a fire.

      Exactly. I agree.

      Depends on wind speed, humidity, temperature gradient, etc. I don’t know much on how steam behaves in a humid cold night…Lighting may be tricky too. Physics is a complicated matter.
      IMHO, I would not call this “smoke” behavior a strong evidence of a fire.

        Maybe it’s a fire…but there is no evidence of a flame, maybe it’s exactly what the said it would be, a liberation of concentrated (the particles would explain the weight and the cloud not lifting) radiation. They probably want to get rid of that before the wind changes and blows that across the island.

    This is my worst nightmare. It’s obvious how severe this is, there can be no fudging around it any more. If the US government does not report this at this stage, then we know without a doubt exactly what kind of a government we have.

    Actually, the bad news is that the building at reactor 4 has seriously degraded over the past two days so fire is almost a certainty given also the heavy density of the smoke.

    When dawn comes, check out the ongoing video of the plant and compare it to past footage. Big change.

    What I worry the most is the temperature inside reactor 3 http://atmc.jp/plant/temperature/?n=3 .
    more than 200°C at 1atm pressure, it is not water for sure. So what? I don’t know…

    According to Dr. Gunderson, the massive supply of spent fuel rods in reactor 4 holds the greatest danger of fallout. Gunderson has said that forty years of those dangerous rods holds more radioactivity than that in the core.

    So milk and leafy greens are subject to contamination. How about eggs? I live in Washington State and raise chickens and ducks for eggs and am wondering about contamination. Would zeolite be okay for poultry? I guess I could add it to their water too. I wish we had a separate forum to discuss these things. I don’t have anyone to ask around where I live.

      eggs and raise chickens should be Ok for a time, the eggs are from housed chickens that are raised in buildings, would need to see if they are wind proof. Dose outside air enter !
      Also the food that they are being feed for now is pre 311.

      chickens raised for consumption are also raised in housed and feed all normally done by computerize house coops ! Also feed with pre 311 foods.
      About 6 weeks from chick to hen, get fat fast and can’t walk.

        Well, my chickens are free range, so they aren’t cooped up in pens. The feed is pre-3/11 still but probably won’t be forever.

          I only wish all farmers were getting on top of this now!! I can’t believe USDA, EPA, FDA aren’t advocating some reasonable precautions?! Are Farmer’s Bureaus or co-op organizations even addressing this major environmental factor? I think it would put Certified Organic designations at risk, too!!!

          Why can’t farmers start building creative enclosures that let in necessary sun and space, but use a HEPA filter for livestock and materials to avoid contaminant exposure–both from rain and air? Soil needs cleaning now, too…

          It may be easier to implement on a smallscale. But, I would take action because Cesium and many of the other dangerous isotopes stick around!!

          UC Berkeley Labs report that the readings are lower on produce in recent tests, but I don’t see how Cesium can reduce before it’s many decade half-life ends. Does anyone know how that works??

            I agree about the certified organics being more radioactive than the non-organic eggs and meat/milk products. After the pre-fukushima feed is gone, then it will all be contaminated. Cesium and strontium are here for our life time.

            The best eggs you can buy are Organic and Free Range. It makes a huge difference in the important nutritional value for human consumption, not to mention the health of the chickens, humane treatment…

            I think that’s one of the MAJOR threats with this nuclear plume hitting the West Coast. Not only are we losing food supply by quantity, we’re actually losing many of the BEST, most High Quality organic crops, orchards, dairy and meats in the United States! :/ And these high quality, non-GMO foods are the only foods that can actually keep you healthy, offset radiation, and prevent cancer to begin with!! For example, when our livers become maligned from toxins, Organics may be the ONLY thing our bodies can tolerate and heal from! :/

            I totally appreciate West Coast farmers & their fine work product. They must apply mitigation efforts ASAP and must organize together!!!

      Zeolite was used after the Chernobyl disaster. Dairy cows were also fed zeolite to remove radiation from their milk.

    Zeolite is a great idea but if you add some fresh chlorophyll to their water, then you are going to be in really good shape. I have studied the use of wheat grass for decades and was happy to hear a medical expert on CNN last month say that for the last two years, research labs have shown good results from chlorophyll in protecting from radiation. It is cheap and easy to do.

          Yeah, wheatgrass or look into Spirulina!! It’s cheaper and easier to come by than chlorella, but packs a nearly identical wallop!! Also, you need to get on it PRONTO because the Pacific sources for such top notch detoxifiers, like seaweed, are now getting too toxic from the nuclear dumping at Fukushima. :(

          NaturalNews has large quantity Storable Organics on sale if you need to jump start your animals’ detoxification.

          Remember, the less toxic burden on them, the better. And there are no side effects or downside to spirulina or chlorella. I wonder about protecting from Strontium…I read that animals should be fed high-quality bone meal to avoid absorbing the nasty Strontium in their bones.

            Also, small animals (less than 25 pounds) only need a few or less tablets a day, depending on their size… It’s basically a human baby dosage. One tablet per day may be sufficient.

            If you have a small flock and got just a few containers with 5,000 tablets each, it might not be a bad deal.

          I grew wheat grass for a while. Lot of work and it tended to get moldy. I have been thinking about doing it again. Make sure you don’t use soil that has manure in it as there is a worry about ecoli or , at least, that is what I heard from a wheat grass grower who grows it for a raw veggie cafe. If one is going to grow it would be good to get many sacks of preFukushima wheat. Wheat, if stored properly, will last for decades. You can get food grade bulk containers, drop a piece of dry ice into the bottom, pour your wheat on top of it and then seal it. Keep the container off the floor (wooden pallet) and keep it in a cool place. You can also place bay leaves in it before sealing it to discourage pests.

            It looks like it is.

            Here’s another tip about wheat or oat or barley when soaking if for sprouting: drink the water you soak it in. It is so good for you! If you feel a cold coming on, soak some wheat or barley in water for about 6 hours and then drink the water. Amazing! It is so good for the immune system and has probiotics as it is a bit fermented. I learned that in Germany while going through the Chernobyl fallout. German beer brewers, if they are starting to feel ill, will go pour off some of the water they are soaking the grain in and it keeps them well.

    This source is the videocam that is constantly monitoring the Fukushima plant. It has been closely monitored by concerned experts for the last six weeks. You can follow the link I put above and see it changing from night to day. Trust me, TEPCO is not fiddling with the camera to make things look worse.

      constantly monitoring, I don’t think so, If you stop and start the video, you will hear the same wind noise over and over again exactly the same, that means it is recorded and a loop !

    The point is, if fiddling is being done, it is to hide events like the recent admission that there was an explosion in reactor 4 last month. Clearly there is something going in reactor 4.

    I grew very discouraged following another site by all of the disinfo agents and have been following this site more than any other because the disinfo agents don’t seem to get away with much here. Although I am not accusing any of these commenters, let’s not do the disinfo’s work for them. Please, let’s use logic and not downplay the seriousness of the situation. It is not fearmongering, it is empowering because there are certainly things we can do to ease the effects for our loved ones.

    Fire no.

    Smoldering yes.

    Remember, Unit 3 had an explosion a while back. Thus it’s most likely still smoldering. The temps which caused the explosion are not easy to get under control, no matter how much water you’re dumping on it, when you’re talking about an ongoing fission process afterward (partial or full)… which is what’s happening in Unit 3 as we all know.

    Unit 3 exploded on March 14th. Since then, radioactive steam has continued to rise but nothing like this. What is going on people? Seriously…this has not been a place of denial and disconnect. Is this place being taken over by disinfo agents as well? I don’t want to believe it. Then there will be no place to go.

I don’t think that a disagreement over this one FACT,….is there a fire, or no fire,…well, it’s not worth splitting up over, is what I’m trying to say. “As long as the bonds that hold us together are stronger than THOSE THAT WOULD TARE US APART,…all will be WELL!” K?

    Wonder if it could be a self perpetuating nuclear reaction, re-criticality?

  • Major Domo

    What’s going on, is a major release of radioactive material. That much is evident. Whether it’s by fire, steam, smoldering, prompt criticality, or fission reaction, the result is still the same – some form of increased ‘release’ occurred. It’s not some sort of ‘fog’ rolling in off the Sea, that’s for certain. It’s rising directly from the reactor buildings, and much greater the sporadic ‘puffs’ we’ve seen in recent weeks. Is it any small coincidence that after weeks of having a ‘live’ feed available (was available on Youtube v=Ck_KEILBLlU), all of a sudden it’s gone? This, in light of the recent statement that ‘Japanese gov’t officials says high density radiation will be released May 8′? Not to sound all “conspiracy-theorist’, but it certainly appears this was a planned release – turn the cameras off, and do it under cover of darkness. Is it really a ‘coincidence’? I find that hardly likely. The only positive, is that is it was ‘planned’, the result may be better than if it was NOT planned.

    • I dont think they would be that ruthless to dump it with the wind blowing right onto the Island. Wait for a day it would change. They already said they would do it. So hiding it at night makes no sense. Doing it with a windward wind nope thinking temps are up and the cauldron is churning

    I checked the pics shown on http://pointscope01.jp/cgi-local/f1np/f1np1/imageview.cgi?mode=past_frame and there was no sign of a “fire” there for the daylight pictures so I am guessing that this picture, if it is true, was the release of radiation we had been forewarned about. I would expect any entity would do such a release under the cover of night for PR purposes.

      Exactly, under cover of night. Out of sight, out of mind. No accountability, just a ‘hope that no one notices’, and no one questions the events, except for on some obscure web site forum. If you look at the first pic after dawn of the ‘incident’ night, there you can see evidence of the release ‘winding down’ at:

      http://pointscope01.jp/cgi-local/f1np/f1np1/imageview.cgi?mode=main_e&file=20110508050007.jpg

      But these pictures are only updated once per hour, only through the day. No night pics, how convenient is that? Also, this camera is so far away from the plant, that the true scope is distorted, to say the least, absolutely minimizing the true scope of any releases captured by this camera. The live video showed a zoomed, although grainy shot, that showed much more detail. Is it a coincidence that video is now shut down? I looked around for other sources for the video feed, and found none. Anyone else?

    Image captures of video footage from the Fukushima nuclear plant appear to show a fire. According to Alexander Higgins and other bloggers, the Japanese shut down the webcam after the images below appeared on the internet. Lucas White Field Hixson posted the images last night, according to Higgins. There is also an animation of the images posted on YouTube.
