Just Pour Molten Copper Into The Spent Fuel Pools Please

The Fukushima owner Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) is about to try to pull out all the "spent" fuel rods in Fukushima Unit 4. This is a guaranteed disaster.
If any two rods get too close to one another, there will be a "blue flash" (prompt criticality reaction). This is basically guaranteed to happen if they try to pull the thousands of rods out of the wrecked pool one-by-one. That will cause a small nuclear detonation that will destroy the pool and set off most of the other rods. The entire local area will then become so radioactive that they will not be able to continue to supply water flow to (at least) the other three pools, which will then dry up, and in turn go critical.

The Pacific will quickly be dead, the U.S. West Coast will be abandoned, and the entire Northern Hemisphere will soon thereafter become uninhabitable. 80% of those who remain there will get carcinomas.

So let's just flood the pools with molten copper and stop this madness.

nuclear detonation? 02.Nov.2013 19:52

tell the truth please. the steam would cause an explosion, but even that is highly doubtful. stop trying to scare people with 1970s warmed over anti-nuke bullshit.

what a load of shit! 02.Nov.2013 19:55

you said "The Pacific will quickly be dead, the U.S. West Coast will be abandoned, and the entire Northern Hemisphere will soon thereafter become uninhabitable. 80% of those who remain there will get carcinomas. "


we are all going to die from global warming, we are all going to die of radiation, blah blah, blah.

scare mongering. thats all this is.

besides, even if this were possible, if the entire northern hemisphere died, 80 percent wouldn't have cancer. they would be dead.

you have been watching too much TV.

He Did Not Say The Entire Northern Hemisphere Would Die 02.Nov.2013 23:41

He said it would be uninhabitable. And 80% would get cancer. That would make it uninhabitable, right?

You speak with a forked tongue.

Bush couldn't say Nuclear, but he was qualified / authorized to launch them. Ha.


Blues, whether you know it or not, you just admitted government doesn't work multiple times in this post. government cheats, lousy employees,

FYI, apparently you have never been a contractor for the government. They are the "red shirts" of government. The government employees never get fired, use the "red shirts" to blame the world's ills on as a scape goat for the idiotic shit they spec'ed out in the first place.

but back to your claim of the entire planet being engulfed a irradiated carcinoma stew. (oh yeah, only the top half of the planet, i forgot.. )

ok, everybody move to new Zealand, blues claims its safe there.

you sure you don't want to pull this "al gore" type estimate back a bit?

oh did you see the pile of shit from japan headed your way to foul your beaches? a present from earth mother to you.. brought to you buy earth mother shaking, and sister sea's currents. don't worry its a debris field the size of Texas, but I'm sure you will find some country in the southern hemisphere to try and mooch off of.
