Hey jerry, the plant is in a refueling mode. READ: Not producing. Also, the floodwaters aren't near the primary containment building. Ouch, that has to smart!!!

Considering possible damage and the cost for dealing with spent nucelar fuel, it is much too expensive to build nuclear power plants.

US orders news blackout
on crippled Nebraska nuclear plant
The Nation
http://nation.com.pk/pakistan-news-newspaper-...

A shocking report prepared by Russia’s Federal Atomic Energy Agency
(FAAE) on information provided to them by the International Atomic
Energy Agency (IAEA) states that the Obama regime has ordered a
“total and complete” news blackout relating to any information regarding
the near catastrophic meltdown of the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant
located in Nebraska. According to this report, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear
Plant suffered a “catastrophic loss of cooling” to one of its idle spent fuel
rod pools on 7 June after this plant was deluged with water caused by
the historic flooding of the Missouri River which resulted in a fire causing
the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) to issue a “no-fly ban” over the area.
Located about 20 minutes outside downtown Omaha .... Russian atomic
scientists in this FAAE report, say ... this one of the worst nuclear
accidents in US history.

Tritium leaks from US nuclear sites
Press TV
http://www.presstv.com/detail/185681.html

Radioactive tritium has leaked from at least 48 of 65 sites of commercial
nuclear power sites in the United States, investigations have shown.
According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission records, tritium —
a radioactive form of hydrogen — has leaked through corroded pipes into
the ground and that the number and severity of the leaks are escalating,
The Washington Post reported.... Any exposure to radioactivity increases
the risk of cancer.

Israel returns nuclear waste to US
Press TV
http://www.presstv.com/detail/185644.html

Head of Israel's Nuclear Energy Commission Shaul Horev says Tel Aviv
has returned nuclear waste from its Sorek nuclear reactor to the United
States. Horev, who spoke at the International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA) ministerial conference on nuclear safety in Vienna on Monday, did
not specify the exact amount of waste, Israeli daily Ha'aretz reported.
... The operation took place after Israel's Nuclear Energy Commission and
the US Department of Energy signed an agreement for the return of the
nuclear waste over a year and a half ago.... The agreement with the US
does not apply to the Dimona nuclear reactor, where international sources
believe Israel produces fissile material from uranium and makes plutonium
for stockpile of nuclear weapons, and waste from Dimona is not being
returned to the US.

Missouri attorneys offered credit course in Talmudic law
BATR Forum
http://forum.batr.net/showthread.php...

In a “seminar accredited for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) by the
Missouri Bar”... St. Louis lawyers who attend will be schooled by Chabad
rabbis in the Babylonian Talmud, a handbook on lying, deceit and wrong-doing
which desecrates the name and memory of Jesus Christ (Sanhedrin 43a;
Gittin 57a), and His Blessed Mother Mary (Sanhedrin 106a; Kallah 51a),
permits sex with children (Sanhedrin 69b in The Talmud: The Steinsaltz
Edition [Random House, 1999] vol. 19, p. 13; also cf. Ketubot 11b and
Sanhedrin 54b) and teaches that Judaic males are above God (Bava Metzia
59b). Chabad (also known as “Chabad-Lubavitch") is a Hasidic faction of
Orthodox Judaism ... The founder of Chabad, Rabbi Schneur Zalman ...
teaches that the souls of gentiles "contain no good whatever.”... Continuing
Legal Education credits to lawyers are thereby accredited by the state of
Missouri through the Missouri Bar.... It would appear that the Constitution
provides for separation of Church and State ... but not Synagogue and State.

I THINK IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS THE NEUCLEAR PLANTS HAVE PROVIN TO DANGEROUS TO BE USED NO ONE CAN PREDICT A DISASTER IF THEY COULD WE WOULD NOT HAVE THEM. THE ONLY WAY IS CLEAN ENERGY. WIND, TIDAL ETC. SPEND THE MONEY ON THESE AND DO AWAY WITH THE NUECLEAR WASTE ALTOGETHER.

What about the spent fuel rods that have been temporarily stored on site since day one?

The cat will be out of the bag when mico and mini reactors arrive soon on the market. Everyone will be buying up these small reactors than can power a small towns. It will make solar and wind power look like toys.

Just look at Toshiba's 4S system and see the future!

The rods "since day one" are stored in the dry cask facility. They don't need cooling at all. The casks they're stored in are even rated to sit 50 feet under water.

For the fuel rods currently in the pool, it would take a few days of no cooling before things get dicey. With as slow as this flood is developing, keeping the cooling pumps running is hardly a problem.

The news was never "blacked out". Funny how silly people will put a whole lot of faith in a Pakistani news organization.

That same Pakistani article contained many wild assertions. The funniest was the TSA making a marine assault on the states of Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia! LOL!

Tritium emits a weak form of radiation, a low-energy beta particle similar to an electron. The tritium radiation does not travel very far in air and cannot penetrate the skin.

Also, the total amount of tritium leaked from any one site is less than the dosage of one x-ray.
