Physicists Say Fukushima Reactors Pose Eternal Threat to Humanity

Fukushima Radiation - University Of New South Wales

The three molten cores at Fukushima plant, each weighing a hundred tons, are so radioactive, that no one can approach them, including robots, which melt down immediately, Dr. Helen Caldicott, the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize nominee, physician and anti-nuclear advocate, states in an interview to Radio VR:

“And no one ever will, and the contamination will go on for hundreds of years,” Ms. Caldicott cites top physicists as saying.

Initially, TEPCO, the Japanese power provider wanted to erect an ice wall around the perimeter of the Fukushima complex, as ground water the underneath the reactor is absorbing radiation and then flowing into the ocean.

An ice wall is a silly idea given the circumstances, remarks the expert, as it would have to last at least a hundred years. Moreover, you would have to have electricity running all the time to keep the ground frozen, explains Ms. Caldicott.

  1. All that heat is a power source. The problem is designing something to take advantage of it. If it were my problem I would design a steam engine system to generate electric energy. The entire thing would be designed to be radioactive and it would have to be a fair distance away so the tremendous heat did not melt it down. It has to be close enough to tap the heat. It has to be mobile enough so it can be dragged away if it malfunctions. The entire generation of electricity would be designed to be totally automatic and totally self-contained so that none of it effects the environment more than what is all ready occuring.
    Is it getting hotter? That could be a major problem as well. The electricity would have to be piped out with some kind of insulation around the pipes. It should be designed so that there is little or no resistance in the lines tapping into that electric power.
    If it gets hot enough it will melt everything around it and submerge into the molten Earth far down closer to the core. I understand the core is at about 10,000 degrees fahrenheit.
    Something that gets too hot could also vaporize into a gas form. That could be a world-wide problem if it happens.
    I hope it does not go that far. We could be looking at the entire planet blowing up. That kind of disaster means we are all at risk. So get all the top engineers on the planet together and come up with a solution before it is too late. Oh, we are too busy. Too busy fighting each other over various things?
    Has anyone out there made a connection between all the geological activity and this melt down? I wondering if all that energy has to go somewhere and it is probably going down.
