if radiation lost containment, then containment was restored it seems to me that a spike is exactly what would be seen

Explain how within the spike it returns to zero for several periods if it is lost containment. That makes no sense. It would have to be basically next to the reactor and containment was perfectly restored, then completely lost again a minute later. That's ridiculous. Perfect containment cannot be restored for only one minute, for that spike to reach the bottom again, then lost, then restored, then lost, then restored and so on. If it was any distance away, variable winds would mean the downward spikes would be somewhat smoothed, in other words it wouldn't fall all the way down, just slow down.

So that makes no sense. It would have to be like someone had a contained nuclear explosion within a container, and they took the lid off a couple of times. Also that detector doesn't seem to really measure much of value. A quick look shows CPM is counts per minute, not any standardized SI unit. But assuming that was Cesium or something else radioactive, someone should have radiation poisoning by now. Why is it that conspiracy nutjobs think the government is completely incapable of keeping secrets, but when something happens there are absolutely no leaks? If it was that high, people would be dying of radiation poisoning. How have NONE of them gone online and said so?

This whole thing is utter bullshiat of a faulty detector.

Exercise. That's the radiation signature of a test kit designed to trigger radiation alarms. Quick puff of impregnated air within a confined space creates an immediate spike in "local" radiation, which marks the start of the containment exercise. Almost immediately after the alarm is triggered the test sample dissipates and the sensor returns to normal limits.

If it were an actual breach of containment then the local sample would remain significantly higher, even if the breach were immediately sealed.

A tiny coolant leak happened, but no radiation was released. As a precaution, nearby units were dispatched just in case.

Coincidentally, a radiation detector some distance away had an erroneous spike.

OR, or, a massive conspiracy of some kind happened.

Whichever you think is more likely.

I've noticed Chinooks on three occasions in NW Ohio in the last two weeks. I thought it was odd, but mostly interesting as I love watching those things fly. I need to do a better job of recognizing obvious government coverups in progress and recording videos to youtube.

A-10s and F-16s used to fly over our house daily. The F-16s were like clockwork, 10:00 every morning, northwest to southeast. The A-10s were a little less frequent. Anyhow, I guess I'm just saying that these things fly by all the time. The booms (admittedly, I didn't watch the linked vid) could certainly have been quarry blasting.

45 minutes downwind or upwind? If it's downwind, you should be dying of radiation poisoning, and you're obviously not. If it's upwind, you're fine.

Radiation does not spike and immediately fade like that.

if radiation lost containment, then containment was restored it seems to me that a spike is exactly what would be seen


No, when containment was restored, there would still be residual radiation in the air. It would take some time to fade.

Radiation like what happened to the plant in Fukushima doesn't just spike then vanish that quickly it tends to linger around for a very long time...partly because it likes to ir-radiate everything it touches.
I don't see any A-10s in the photos...I see what could be Chinooks ..and a C-130 airframe...which for the tinfoil hat set could be a gunship I suppose... but either thats a training exercise or its the military transporting things, or transferring aircraft. The C-130 was probably present to refuel the Chinooks

this kinda shiat happens all the time...it's part of fighting active wars.

When I lived in Nashville, I'd work out in Smyrna and watch the 180th Airlift wing's C-130's doing training runs nearby, combat landings...no stop drops...occasionally popping flares...it was cool...but hardly ominous if you know what you are looking at.

5:59 a.m. EDT, June 9, 2012

SOUTH BEND -- Some people were alarmed after a website reported readings indicating that radiation levels were at a catastrophic level in South Bend.

The owner of the company that owns the site that monitors radiation across the U.S. told WSBT that the readings reported Wednesday and early Thursday on the Radiation Network site were a false alarm.

MineraLab owner Tim Flanegin says the readings appeared to be caused by an equipment malfunction.

Officials at the Environmental Protection Agency and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission told the station their radiation readings were normal.
 
2012-06-09 03:12:18 PM  
Also here:

Update: 6/7/12, 7:45 A.M: - False Alert: The alert level reading last evening appears to be a false alert from an equipment malfunction. Here is the station's report:

"out of control readings on the GeigerGraph screen from about 11:30pm local time that occurred while sleeping. My apologies to all. I have no idea what caused this. Shut down GeigerGraph and restarted. Readings from the Geiger were in the normal range (the Geiger operates on A/C). All cable connections are tight and not loose. Am speculating between the GFI and USB Adapter and some sort of voltage spikes. The uninterruptable power supply UPS had lost power and had died - a tripped GFI. I am not going to leave the system running while not at home until I can determine and fix the problem."

2012-06-09 03:54:19 PM  

Inquisitive Inquisitor: Exercise. That's the radiation signature of a test kit designed to trigger radiation alarms. Quick puff of impregnated air within a confined space creates an immediate spike in "local" radiation, which marks the start of the containment exercise. Almost immediately after the alarm is triggered the test sample dissipates and the sensor returns to normal limits.

If it were an actual breach of containment then the local sample would remain significantly higher, even if the breach were immediately sealed.

No. The whole point of containment is to contain the radioactive *MATERIAL*. The radiation itself is only contained for the safety of the workers and it won't go all that far anyway.

J. Frank Parnell: I don't think nuclear reactors make a series of explosions like people are reporting even under the worst of conditions. That story is probably a cover if something truly happened.


You could get explosions from the fuel for the backup generators. I do agree a reactor itself won't. You can get *ONE* powerful but low-grade boom (it's not fast enough to make much of a shock wave) if the reactor is taken into the prompt critical range. (This is what happened in Chernobyl due to an incredible sequence of stupidity.)

Ivo Shandor: Also here:

In other words, a piece of electronics blew up, not a nuke plant. No surprise.

I saw this on Reddit a few days ago, and as a (downwind) Michigan resident, was more than a bit concerned. After a few edgey moments poking through a dozen postings, I decided to hang my hat on a defective detector and / or solar flares. There was, after all, a pretty big flare that popped on the 3rd, and a few other detectors across the country that detected odd spikes in the same time frame. There was also a similar class of flare last month that tripped detectors that shouldn't have been bothered by a flare, so rather than let my OCD drive me insane over this, I'll say "sunspots" and call it good.

I've been following this clusterfark on reddit since it originated yesterday, mostly out of some horrible personal flaw of liking to watch people psychologically implode.

The theories regarding this 'incident' have gone from nuclear coverup to THE FLARE THAT'S GONNA KILL US ALL (starring the lead conspiracist, OCDtrigger, in a role previously made famous by Nicholas Cage). Actual nuclear technicians and other assorted logical sorts have torn apart the 'evidence' in a systemic and unregarded fashion.

It's all bullshiat.

But it is glorious bullshiat.

Something Awful has been following this since the original Reddit post which got this all started, and tracking it as it makes it way through the poorly-fact checked media.
http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3489360

All of the evidence is from one instrument, which got reported to two websites. (But two sites means it's confirmed!) Also the same websites which were reliable sources when they reported the spike instantly became unreliable sources when they said that it was a faulty detector.

Radiation does not spike and immediately fade like that.

if radiation lost containment, then containment was restored it seems to me that a spike is exactly what would be seen

No, when containment was restored, there would still be residual radiation in the air. It would take some time to fade.


Radiation does not work this way. Fallout, yes, but not nuclear decay.

Well, I queried the data from the EPA site, and it's all still there as far as I can tell.

go to https://cdxnode64.epa.gov/radnet-public/query.do and move 'Beta Gross Count Rate' from the left box to the right. Next, in the 'Fixed Monitor Location' box, select 'IN: Fort Wayne'. For Time Range Criteria, I have it set for 6/2 - 6/9. Press Submt.

You can even download the excel spreadsheet of the data - over that time period there are some pretty high 'spikes' indeed. And no censorship that I can tell - the data is there. Is it the right data? Beats me.

Stratohead: Radiation like what happened to the plant in Fukushima doesn't just spike then vanish that quickly it tends to linger around for a very long time...partly because it likes to ir-radiate everything it touches.
I don't see any A-10s in the photos...I see what could be Chinooks ..and a C-130 airframe...which for the tinfoil hat set could be a gunship I suppose... but either thats a training exercise or its the military transporting things, or transferring aircraft. The C-130 was probably present to refuel the Chinooks

this kinda shiat happens all the time...it's part of fighting active wars.

When I lived in Nashville, I'd work out in Smyrna and watch the 180th Airlift wing's C-130's doing training runs nearby, combat landings...no stop drops...occasionally popping flares...it was cool...but hardly ominous if you know what you are looking at.

I knew this off hand since I live in the leaky tritium Nuclear Bermuda triangle between Braidwood, Dresden and Lasalle County Nuclear Power plants. For good measure I do all my boating at Clinton Lake, home of the Clinton Lake Nuclear generating station. However Clinton Lake is a much more modern plant then the other 3 and has a far better safety record.
P.S. The Byron Nuclear facility here in Illinois had an incident that required venting not that long ago.

Okay, first of all tritium is so pansy ass you need special monitoring equipment to find it. It has to be distilled out of the water. It's so weak it's a pain in the ass to find.

Second of all, hydrogen is really fsking hard to keep in a system. You could have an entirely watertight system and you'll still get hydrogen escaping. And that's the trick of tritium. Which CAN occur naturally by the way.

Either way, we're not exactly talking actual primary freaking coolant here. If it was you'd be finding the more whammo bammo isotopes alongside it.

Cesium-137 and Stontium-90 have been found with Tritium however in instances and I do realize that Hyrodgen molecules (and Tritium by default) are nearly impossible to contain. However the US government made Exelon buy all the homes by Braidwood where it leaked into the groundwater due to the high concentrations of it found in the drinking wells. I however am convinced none of it is as dangerous as radioactive cat litter.

On a side note they are currently setting up the Clinton Lake plant to produce medical use Cobalt-60 during the current shut down. Having a nuclear lake is great, when the plant is running the lake will be 103 degrees on the spillway side. You can basically choose where to swim based on desired water temp.

here's a shock. we can't contain everything. the epa gives us a limit on releases. EVERY DAY we release all sorts of nasty shiat to your water supply and your air and you don't even farking know it.

the tritium is a different issue. its not a "leak" persay, it's the interaction of the radioactive particles with particles outside of the system. Unless all systems at the plant were made out of 3 feet of lead and concrete, those nasty little neutrons and gammas get out and fark with the atoms on the otherside of the pipe. (this is speaking of commercial us lightwater plants)

holy balls.

absolutely exelon should be held accountable for increased tritium. why you say? because they did it. Hey, this is america and we make science fun. just because it had some unanticipated groundwater contamination, etc. no worse than your average superfund site.

I saw this on some show the other day. Little photographer, Carlos from Mexico, was selling photoshopped pics to some small media outlet in Mex (local newspaper?). American detectives stepped in and said that pixelation you see around the subject: PHOTOSHOPPED. AND CARLOS IS LYING.
So the media outlet got their own expert on the situation (carlito was obv their fav kid). He said that pixelation is normal. And as for the deviation in Mr. Carlos' story regarding the time of the shot photos with the timestamp of the pics: The aliens obviously changed that.
Can't remember what show that was...Anyway, same thing here:

Ecobuckeye: I've noticed Chinooks on three occasions in NW Ohio in the last two weeks. I thought it was odd, but mostly interesting as I love watching those things fly. I need to do a better job of recognizing obvious government coverups in progress and recording videos to youtube.

A-10s and F-16s used to fly over our house daily. The F-16s were like clockwork, 10:00 every morning, northwest to southeast. The A-10s were a little less frequent. Anyhow, I guess I'm just saying that these things fly by all the time. The booms (admittedly, I didn't watch the linked vid) could certainly have been quarry blasting.


Maybe it has something to do with a C-17 buzzing me on a highway in the middle of nowhere for no clear reason. There couldn't have been anything bigger than a farm landing strip nearby and I know there weren't any Air Force bases less than an hour drive away.
