Nuclear Reactor Map – Power and Pollution Tracker

Nuclear Reactor Map – Power and Pollution Tracker

“Electricity is but the fleeting byproduct from nuclear reactors. The actual product is forever deadly radioactive waste.” [1]

Why should I care about Nuclear Reactors?

Reason #1: The Fukushima-Daiichi meltdown is polluting the entire Pacific Ocean!

Nuke TV

On March 11, 2011 a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit Sendai, Japan sending a massive tsunami crashing into the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant, destroying cooling pumps located on the beach. [2][3] As a result, the nuclear furnace inside the crippled plant overheated, leading to a meltdown. [4] Basically, the interior of the reactor got so hot that its fuel rods melted through its metal container, through the concrete “safety net” below, and is now in the ground under the power plant. [5] This super-hot material is now in contact with groundwater and seawater, producing radioactive steam and ocean pollution (300 tons/day). [6][7][8] Over 100,000 Japanese citizens were evicted from their land, never to return home and praying they don’t develop cancers or mutations like those in Chernobyl did. [9][10] Within the first four days following the tsunami, three seperate explosions released massive amounts of radioactive fallout worldwide, with the majority depositing (rain) over Tokyo, the United States of America, and the Pacific Ocean. [11][12][13]

The WORST part: TEPCO and the Japanese government did not admit a meltdown had occurred for two months! Fukushima-Daiichi is still raining death on land, sea, and air two years later, and the media blackout continues:

Fukushima media coverage “may be harmful”

One report, in UK newspaper The Independent, quoted a scientist who predicted more than a million would die, and that the prolonged release of radioactivity from Fukushima would make health effects worse than those from the sudden release experienced at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor in Ukraine. [14] “We’ve got to stop these sorts of reports coming out, because they are really upsetting the Japanese population,” says Gerry Thomas at Imperial College London, who is attending the meeting. “The media has a hell of a lot of responsibility here, because the worst post-Chernobyl effects were the psychological consequences and this shouldn’t happen again.” [15][16]

Officials in Japan have now admitted that the Fukushima-Daiichi radiation release was much higher than initially reported, and now we are hearing that the amount of oceanic pollution is also in dispute. [17][18] This means that every computer model based on the bogus claims of TEPCO and the Japanese government are inaccurate and misleading. [19] A very desperate TEPCO is now attempting to build an underground ice wall to contain leaks.

With over 400 nuclear power plants worldwide, which will be next to blow? When it does, how would you feel if you were evicted from your home and left in the dark as to how poisoned you are? [20]

Reason #2: American Fukushima

American-Fukushima-oconee-nuclear-station-south-carolina-flooding-could-lead-to-meltdown

The Oconee nuclear plant is located about 12 miles downstream of the Jocassee Dam (see figure above). Oconee has three pressurized water reactors, each similar to the reactor that melted down at Three Mile Island in 1979. [31] Oconee is the only nuclear power plant in the United States that does not rely on emergency diesel generators to supply electricity to reactor core cooling equipment if the normal source of electricity becomes unavailable. Instead, Oconee gets backup power from the nearby Keowee hydroelectric dam. Backup power from Keowee is supplied to the Standby Shutdown Facility (SSF) housing the equipment needed to cool the reactor cores when the normal power source is lost.

Duke Energy, the plant’s owner, has known since at least 1992 that the 5-foot tall flood wall protecting the SSF is not high enough to prevent equipment inside the SSF from damage if the Jocassee Dam fails. The NRC has known about this situation since at least 1996.

If the Jocassee Dam failed, the three operating reactors could melt within about 10 hours and the containments could fail within 60 hours. In that case, more radiation could be released than escaped following the three reactor meltdowns at Fukushima. [32]

Reason #3: Solar Flares or Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) weapons could trigger multiple meltdowns!

The Radiation Database by Jim rezn8d Lee of Climate Viewer News

As clearly shown by the Fukushima and Oconee scenarios above, our nuclear power plants are not as safe as we previously thought. In the event of a large coronal mass ejection (solar flare) or missile-generated electromagnetic pulse detonated high above the Earth, it is highly unlikely that nuclear plants will be properly shielded from damaging radiation and are likely to endure wide-ranging failures which could lead to multiple meltdowns worldwide.

Have you seen the television show “Revolution”? Modern civilization deteriorates after some mysterious force shuts off the power grid. Chaos and violence rule the day while the show’s cast rush to cut the power back on and restore America’s former glory.

I want you to imagine that a nuclear device has just exploded over America. [38] Our reactors’ circuits are fried from the effects of EMP, unable to regulate cooling pumps and crucial systems, when 100 plants begin melting down, releasing massive amounts of fallout. As scary as this thought may be, it could be worse. A massive explosion on the sun could send a wall of energy our way at any moment, wiping out electronics worldwide along with our world’s power grids. This has happened before: it was called the Carrington Event:

On September 1–2, 1859, the largest recorded geomagnetic storm occurred. Aurorae were seen around the world, most notably over the Caribbean; also noteworthy were those over the Rocky Mountains that were so bright that their glow awoke gold miners, who began preparing breakfast because they thought it was morning. People who happened to be awake in the northeastern US could read a newspaper by the aurora’s light.

Telegraph systems all over Europe and North America failed, in some cases even shocking telegraph operators. Telegraph pylons threw sparks and telegraph paper spontaneously caught fire. Some telegraph systems appeared to continue to send and receive messages despite having been disconnected from their power supplies. [39][40]

Scientists say it is not a matter of “if” but a matter of “when” the next Carrington Event will occur. What effect will this solar kill-shot have on our nuclear stations worldwide? That remains to be seen. Trillions of dollars have been spent on space fences and other sci-fi gadgets to detect, track, and hopefully destroy inter-continental ballistic missiles carrying nuclear/EMP warheads, that does not guarantee they will work when they time comes. [41] As evidenced by 9/11, the Boston bombing, and numerous other events, when we really need these gadgets to work, the people using them fail. Whether man-made or solar calamity, Electromagnetic Pulse is the greatest threat to modern society. The Heritage Foundation warn that 2/3 of Americans would die within a year of an EMP attack due to starvation and domestic violence. [42] This estimate does not include deaths due to a Level 8 mutli-reactor meltdown as a result of electromagnetic pulse, nor do they even recognize the possibility. [43] Tell your representatives protect the grid and shield our nukes, your life depends on it!

Reason #4: Nuclear Waste becomes Nuclear Bombs

Few know of the untold human and environmental damage caused by the “Cold War.” Ask anyone, “How many nuclear bombs have exploded?” and most will respond “Two, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”  Since World War II, over 2,000 nuclear explosions have rocked our land, water, skies, and heavens.  The Nuclear Test Explosion Map below will show you little known world of nuclear deterrence and will grow (in the future, check back for updates) to include information on the victims of radioactive plumes associated with these tests.

  1. Added you to my new compilation Fuku page for students of the disaster.
    Since they are trying to ban all the info I figure the best thing is to fight back on the web!
