So, I came across these this morning. Real horror for Hallowe'en day.
- Summary on Fukushima (10 minutes)
- Wasserman on Fukushima (several items) ** impt. info re: very important petition!! (Wasserman site here)
- Fairewinds Associates site (many items about Fukushima ** including a tour of Daiichi here)
- Fukushima Nuclear Reactor Unit 4 is sinking (10-minute YouTube; quite excellent) * this one added to list on Nov. 4/13.
** hate to wreck anyone's day...but we do expect Hallowe'en to horrify, do we not?
'Quote of the day' with this post: “All nuclear power plant systems, structures, components and personnel are potential sources of failures and malfunctions. Problems can arise from defects in design, manufacturing, installation and construction; from testings, operational, and maintenance errors; from explosions and fires; from excessive corrosion, vibration, stress, heating, cooling, radiation damage, and other physical phenomena; from deterioration due to component aging, and from externally-initiated events such as floods, earthquakes, tornadoes and sabotage.” – Daniel F. Ford (from a Stop Plant Vogtle brochure)
