“Yes, Madam, the tuna is marinated at sea during its long migration from Japan to here in both Cesium-134 and Cesium-137. It’s so good, it glows.”
Edison estimates a $65 million cost to replace the failed steam generators, with an overall $100 million associated losses. Edison has already backed off assertions of a June opening, due to lingering safety concerns. Meanwhile, an earthquake study moves forward, albeit with less outside oversight than that of Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant.
Update from Fukushima: cooling water pours in, instantly drains out highly radiated, through unknown openings, workers can’t locate, due to extreme radioactivity, as more quakes persist. Could things get worse? Seems so.
There’s no way on God’s green earth, San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) can fix 19,454 (per dome) rotting pipes, without a plumbing overhaul of nuclear proportions, keeping its creaky ol’double boilers shut down for years, or maybe decades. Good.
When we see a giant plume, shooting out the top of a failed reactor in full meltdown, those clouds are full of nuclear fleas, mixing with the air we breathe.
Personal and collective action items to protect ourselves from the ongoing worldwide radiation pollution from Gabriel Cousens MD.
Threats: Mounting stresses on the containment structures filled with radioactive cooling water made vulnerable to rupture; explosions from the release of hydrogen and oxygen from seawater, and fuel rods continuing to melt.
