    Sea water, lots and lots of sea water, collected and recycled as best it can, to cool the cores and limit the excursions.

    Meanwhile, they should round up all the termite tenting crews in the country and have them cover those areas with some good strong vitane proof tenting to hold the contamination in for now. Or something similar. They can't dawdle. Seattle is downwind.

    They reported increased radiation levels outside the facilities within hours of the earthquake. Either their pressure relief systems vent to open air, which they almost certainly do not, or their containment systems failed immediately. After all, the whole purpose of a containment system is to contain. And the radioactive material doesn't get outside of the fuel rods unless the rods failed.

    Connect the dots, they had a major core violation and containment failure within hours and knew it.

Starting to make sense, or do I have to ask how we're going to eat, if 100% of our farm land is dedicated to hemp production?
    The countering point is what if it takes 0.9 barrels of fuel to plant, tend, and harvest those three acres? That means 30 acres of land will be required to harvest one barrel of fuel.

    More importantly, what if it takes two barrels of fuel to harvest the stuff?

    so again, you didn't provide enough of an equation to see if it makes sense to pursue this type of energy source.
    oil and electric are 2 different issues....
    very little oil is used to make electricity, and electricity is not an issue, we have multiple ways of producing copious amounts of it.
    Oil for transportation uses is our main problem, and nuclear won't solve that until we have many millions of electric cars being charged from the grid.

    They are likely venting radioactive gases to mitigate pressure buildup, and hopefully that venting is done thru some kind of filters, but those filters will not stop gas, just particles...

    From what I heard/read, they are venting through filters, probably high grade HEPA filters.

    Bad news.

    The weather forecast calls for sub-freezing temperatures, snow, and a reversal of wind direction that is going to blow the radioactively charged air back toward the island.

    Through it all, look at the behavior of the people. Now, compare them to the lawless Haitians.

    I don't know if linking to another thread is against forum rules. If it is, feel free to remove my post, however I think that everyone should read this article to gain a better understanding of whats going on. I usually don't dig blogs, but I really liked the article.
