Four things had to happen for Fuku to happen, had any one not happened we wouldn't be talking about it. Beyond design capacity earthquake and tsunami, loss of off-site power, and loss of back up generators. Even then it would have been contained to to a mere financial disaster had Tepco officers not been so afraid of fines, sanctions, and the regulator's ire that they wouldn't vent the hydrogen that was accumulating in the Reactor Buildings. The reactor vessels performed despite the severity of the circumstances, it was humans that fcked the pooch. Meanwhile, since the disaster the entire US fleet's being retro-fitted with the lessons learned from Fuku.
So you shut down the reactor (for whatever reason) and lose electricity.

Now what? From what I can see, still the same results.

Islamic Mosques: Excluded From Surveillance By Feds

While Government agencies watch you – Mosques run amuck

Homeland Insecurity: The White House assures us that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is necessary to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists emanate from. Fact - Many of the terrorists have been radicalized in Mosques and Muslim agencies right here in America. According to the NSA the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes Mosques and Muslim affiliated facilities. Supposedly this is done to protect the sensibilities of innocent Muslims who worship in Mosques.

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. Surveillance or undercover sting operations are not allowed without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee (SORC). Who makes up this body, and under what methodology do they review requests - nobody knows. The names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret. Why is it necessary to keep the names and titles of the people who decide whether or not to protect the rest of the country from radical Muslims, secret?

It is my understanding that recently the majority of Homeland Security top officers appointed by Obama are Muslims ! Seems with all the terrorist threats from them , isn’t it kind of stupid to appoint what amounts to Muslim Brotherhood members to supposed anti-terrorist agency ??

Why do Muslims have more rights than Americans? Than Christian groups? Patriotic Tea Party members? Our nation is in serious trouble. Read “When a Nation Forgets God” by Erwin Lutzer, Moody Press. It talks about Hitler and how he gained access to the German people, little by little, helping them he said, and then WHAM! We need to wake up as a Nation, return to God, and get real about our enemies……usually attached to Mosques. Come On, Get Real!

One unit was completely de-fueled to perform a mod, the fuel melts when there's insufficient cooling. In BWR's and PWR's (the only designs operating in the US) the coolant (plain water) is also the moderator, without the moderator the fission process stops completely. A melted core and an intact primary containment means everything worked perfectly!
Then your position and actual facts don't mix since a leak was detected. I always thought water was used for the cooling of the plant. You're saying water is required as a product to create fission.

http://news.yahoo.com/another-contaminated-wa...

TOKYO (Reuters)- The operator of the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant said it had found another leak of contaminated water on Wednesday, piling pressure on the utility to curb the problem as it seeks permission to release water to the sea.

The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power plant was hit by a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami more than two years ago, triggering nuclear reactor meltdowns and explosions.

Tokyo Electric Power, or Tepco, said a worker patrolling the area spotted the leak just after noon, with droplets of contaminated water leaking out between the tank's circular steel structure.

Shunichi Tanaka, chief of Japan's new nuclear regulator, set up after its predecessor was discredited in the 2011 disaster, told a news conference that Tepco should deal with the problem immediately. But he said the regulator did not regard the matter as serious.

The latest leak was acknowledged after Tepco said earlier this week it had detected radioactive cesium in groundwater flowing into the plant -- overturning an early finding that contamination was negligible.

A spate of similar incidents and power outages plagued the facility in March and April. The incidents represent another setback for the company as it tries to reassure the public and the government that it can manage the problem of tainted water.

The plant's still precarious state also serves as a reminder of the poor management of the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986 as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government presses ahead with a drive to export Japan's nuclear technology.

The discovery that groundwater is being contaminated before it enters the damaged reactor buildings complicates efforts to persuade local authorities and fishermen that the groundwater is safe enough to be dumped into the ocean.

About 400 metric tons (441 tons) of groundwater flow daily into the reactor buildings only to be mixed with highly contaminated water that comes from cooling the melted fuel.

The government ordered Tepco last week to increase storage capacity of water tanks and construct a wall of frozen earth around the four reactor buildings to stem the flow of groundwater seeping into the plant.

Leaks were found in underground storage pits in April, prompting Tepco to speed up the construction of sturdier above-ground tanks. The leak discovered on Wednesday was from one of the sturdier tanks.

Tepco is also trying to construct a bypass that would route the water away from the plant and into the ocean. That plan requires the agreement of fishermen who oppose plans to dump 100 metric tons of groundwater a day from the plant into the sea.
Whatever

Obamacare single-handedly become a liability to full-time employment and a freeze on hiring.

If you think that's funny, you must like getting royally screwed.

And, yes, the same IRS who took their cue to go after this president's enemies from Obama's speeches in 2008 is now running Obamacare.

But I'll bet you think that's hilarious.

Better hope Republicans don't gain back the presidency and the Senate in the next few years. It won't be so funny anymore.

Three physicians were talking tonight about how Obamacare is making the already existing problems with health care even worse.

They came up with better solutions in their own private practices just to avoid Obamacare.

It really made me angry. We wanted the health care system changed for the better. And certainly not run by the IRS.
