Tracking the situation at the stricken nuclear power station: Two years since the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the situation at the Daichi nuclear plant remains critical. Fukushima is a continuing nuclear disaster – it did not end when the world’s mainstream media abruptly stopped reporting on it just a few months after it began. Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with 40 years’ experience, has been monitoring the reactors and radiation releases since March 11, 2011. He posts regular video updates on his NGO website: Fairewinds Energy Education, which explain the unfolding disaster in layman’s terms. He is one of a small handful of independent experts who have stepped into the gap left by the nuclear industry, TEPCO and the Japanese government, to provide the public with accurate scientifically based information and analysis. You can access Arnie Gundersen’s video reports and media interviews here. Gundersen told Al Jazeera in June 2011 that “Fukushima is the biggest industrial catastrophe in the history of mankind.”
A triple meltdown occurred 1-2 days after the earthquake & tsunami hit: When the earthquake hit, the plant lost power and water used to cool the reactors stopped circulating. Back up diesel generators located in the basements failed when the tsunami flooded the buildings. Without power to cool the water which controls the temperature of the fuel rods, the fuel melted, turning into molten lava and breaching the steel containment vessels at the reactors’ floor. Gundersen’s reports confirm that a triple meltdown occurred within 24-48 hours after the plant lost power. (Keep Reading...).http://www.nukefreefuture.com/fukushima2012/
