Second explosion at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station

A second hydrogen explosion rocked a crippled Japanese nuclear reactor Monday, spewing a giant cloud of smoke into the air and injuring 11 workers, officials said.

The blast was so large it could be felt 25 miles away.

The plant’s operator, however, insisted that radiation levels around the facility remained within legal limits.

  1. Greg, I thought you were a more rational blogger than this; you are inadvertently feeding into the hysteria around this situation with the Fukushima nuclear plants by referencing shoddy media reporting. I suggest you and others here take a look at my blog post on the matter:

    Know Nukes: The Japanese Earthquake & Anti-Nuclear Hysteria
    http://skepticalteacher.wordpress.com/2011/03/13/know-nukes-the-japanese-earthquake-anti-nuclear-hysteria/

    Please take some time to read up on information regarding the Fukushima incident from reputable sources that understand the nuclear physics & engineering involved. Otherwise, you are merely feeding the hysteria.

  2. I do not understand the objective of warning people to stop talking about Chernobyl when no one has yet done so. This is not a good time to be erecting straw men and sock puppets.

  3. Merely pointing to a video showing the explosion is not feeding hysteria. And merely suggesting that the risk analysis of nuclear power is drastically undercautious is not being anti-nuke.

    Greg’s mentioned elsewhere that there appears to be a pro-nuke crowd that’s downplaying everything that’s happening, and no matter how accurate or measured anyone’s response is, no matter how technically knowledgeable they happen to be, if they come out against nuclear power, they’re obviously fearmongerers and luddites.

    To them I say, get fucked.
