Radiation Leak at Disposal Site
« on: February 22, 2014, 04:41:38 PM »
For those who are still proponents of nuclear energy an  believe that storage of nuclear waste is a solvable problem the link below might cause you to rethink your approach. Granted that is a military site for the "safe" disposal of  nuclear weapons complexes and generation sites across the US but the end result is the same. If there are problems with a military site what are the possibilities that problems might arise with a commercial operation?

It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Original Footage Of The Largest Thermonuclear Weapon Ever Detonated, The ‘Tsar Bomba’


February 21, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin



Type: Thermonuclear weapon
 Place of origin: Soviet Union
 Blast yield: 50-58 megatons (TNT)
The Russian Tsar Bomba was the most powerful nuclear weapon detonation in the history of mankind. This video shows the original footage of the detonation…


The Tsar Bomba detonated 2 miles above the ground, north of the Arctic Circle on October 30, 1961.
At the time, Khrushchev warned of the existence of a 100 megaton bomb – nearly unimaginable after witnessing this 57 megaton detonation.

*The fireball was seen and felt 620 miles away from ground zero.

*The heat from the bomb would cause third-degree burns 62 miles away.

*The mushroom cloud was 40 miles high – seven times higher than Mount Everest – and reached above the stratosphere and well inside the mesosphere.

*The mushroom cloud cap had a peak width of 59 miles while the base of the cloud was 25 miles wide.

*All buildings 34 miles from ground zero were destroyed.

*In districts over 100 miles away from ground zero wooden houses were destroyed, stone ones lost their roofs, windows and doors.

*Radio communications were interrupted for almost one hour.

*One participant in the test saw a bright flash through dark goggles and felt the effects of a thermal pulse even at a distance of 170 miles.

*The explosion could be seen and felt in Finland, breaking windows there and in Sweden.

*A shock wave was observed 430 miles away.

*Windowpanes were partially broken to distances of 560 miles.

*Blast damage occurred 620 miles away (atmospheric focusing).

*The seismic shock created by the detonation was measurable even on its 3rd passage around the Earth.

*The blast was equivalent to all of the explosives ever used in World War II – multiplied by ten…

How many times have we read about SWAT teams raiding homes because some kids were in the backyard playing with nerf guns.  Some kid points an "L" shaped poptart at another and the teachers and school board go into meltdown.  Of coarse there's also the DHS swat units raiding farms because they sold some untainted produce and finally the most extensive domestic surveillance grid in human history.
Recently, some untrained nuns broke into what is referred to as the most secure nuclear storage site in the U.S.  The nuns used bolt cutters to get through several sensored security fences and used hammers to pound on the side of the building while they sang songs and painted blood on the walls.  All of this was done in the early hours of the morning.  Eventually a security guard came out to see what was going on.  Several alarms had been tripped during the incident but the camera's weren't working and the guards couldn't be bothered to investigate the alarms.  Imagine if it had been trained terrorists.
All of this begs the question (rhetorical of course).  Is the massive security system of the U.S. government staffed and run by incompetent boobs, or is it really in place to subjugate rather than protect Americans?
The high security facility in question is the Y-12 Oakland Nuclear security facility in Tennessee.

Now that is a good question. It may not be the intention but it seems to be perhaps a unavoidable consequence of going down this path.
