Fukushima Reactor 1 China Syndrome
Energy News is reporting a dramatic increase in radiation.
From commenter TraderGreg:
It entered the dry well on May 21st. Based on 15 ft of concrete, it probably will burn completely through this this week – based on the limed information that we have. Actually, based on rough calculations, it may have already burned through it, by now.
The big question is – how much rock/soil is between the concrete and the water bed?
Once we have steam/hydrogen explosion (or whatever), the huge geyser may damage the other buildings around, and it will be game over.
This has been described as an extinction level event. It may take a generation, but we are all doomed to die of cancer… unless something else gets us first.
