They getting ready to fire up HAARP again on Japan's ass? I think Japan could only take one more blow before it's lying on the canvas looking up.

Or lying in the new deep trench the earthquake opened up just off the east shore.

Can anyone explain why they don't build nuclear power plants in lead-lined pits underground so they can be easily flooded or entombed in the event of a meltdown, with a PICA-X heat shield below the reactor ensuring the melted core doesn't escape?

Matte_Black's picture

Just a guess, but I believe the answer to be that they simply do not want to spend the money and/or suffer the questions that would be asked as to why such a thing is necessary after all their assurances that nuke reactors are just a warm version of cuddly teddy bear.

Remember also that these goddamned things are uninsurable outside of .gov underwriting. No sane private insurer would ever underwrite a nuke reactor at a premium that would allow for a profit margin. Just for starters the actuarial table for a policy like that would have to be extended for about a thousand years into the future. Let's see, the premium would be in the trillions possibly?

You're probably right in that it comes down to cost, with false promises and assurances about how safe the plants are to get da gubmint on board.  But one has to wonder whether it is expensive compared to what the cost of Fukushima will ultimately be.  Perhaps Chernobyl could have been explained away as backward Russians using a dangerous design with inadequate safety mechanisms.  But Fukushima, this is a GE-designed reactor run by the most technologically advanced country on the planet.  

Even if one is of the opinion that the world is too dependent upon nuclear power to live without it, how can something absolutely foolproof not be demanded at this point?

It's no wonder Saudi Arabia is shitting bricks about the Bushehr plant:

Matte_Black's picture

Yes, brother, you are absolutely right. Your idea is so beautifully obvious that it surprised me. +100

And, really the cost to impliment a lead-lined, waterproof pit type of installation seems almost nonexistent next the cost Japan is facing at Fukushima. I'm thinking every number we've heard said in the same sentence as the word 'recovery' is laughably low. Fukushima hasn't been priced in at all.

$250B? lulz...

How in the Hell do you know what PICA is? Are you in the Space biz?

redpill's picture

No, just a curious investor waiting for SpaceX to go public, my friend :)

Stay tuned for 4th quarter next year.

Actually PICA won't work In this situation, Man. Ablative is the key concept here in a heat shield designed for atmospheric re-entry, the heat is carried away from the shield by ablation as the vehicle passes through the atmosphere at very high speed. In a static situation, the heat would build up. It is also likely that materials of this type will degrade prematurely due to high radiation environment (especially x-ray and energetic neutron bombardment). I still like the lead lined pit though, far out!

redpill's picture

Bummer about the PICA, then.  Unless they could keep it cooled from below, with recirculating liquid nitrogen or something of the like.  It's always amazing to me they only think about building elaborate emergency cooling systems after the damn thing is already melting.  Why aren't they incorporated into the original design?  Too expensive next to the value of every human life within 100 miles?

But anyway rock on, Dude.

Because you can't sell insurance against it.  No leverage.

Hephasteus's picture

Because that would be responsible. It's easier to make commercials that just say your responsible because then you get sleep with desperate chics who want the job in the commercial. Nobody wants to screw a lead lined underground pit. Well shit. I forgot this is japan. Throw in robotic tenticles and you're plan would be not only accepted it would become taboo to reject it.

jonjon831983's picture

Lead has a pretty low melting point, figure if there was some thick lead lining it would degrade quickly?

redpill's picture

The lead could be a few feet into the walls and below the floor, it's just there to stop the radiation obviously, so it doesn't need to be the innermost layer.  Could even be contained by ceramic radiator-type structure so that if it does melt it stays in position.  But again, obviously that would cost too much money.   Unless of course you compare it to hopelessly irradiating a 100km area around the plant for foreseeable human history.  Then it's sort of a bargain if you ask me.

I am trying to get my wife to go out to see the Bill Hicks documentary tonight its showing here in Toronto.  A little off topic I know but he was well ahead of the curve.

haarp simulates effects of solar storms on the worlds emf. Don't know how that would cause quakes...

redpill's picture

Assumably the theory is that it can reflect low frequencies off the atmosphere and generate enough localized disturbance to trigger a seismic event.  I'm no physicist, but it doesn't sound very plausible.

Whizbang's picture

Considering the fact that earthquakes originate miles below the earths crust, I would say that you're right.

robobbob's picture

its an ongoing tin foil hat conspiracy joke.

basis. by converging radio waves reflected off of the ionosphere on to a target area over a period of time will induce heating in the target. It can be used to heat areas of the atmosphere to influence weather, or the energy can penetrate the earth causing heat and stress buildup resulting in earthquakes.

The conspiracy takes several seperately proven facts and ties them together into an unproven and doubtful way. Its always good for a laugh. Whenever anything strange happens,  weather anomalies, earthquakes, everyone always blames HAARP.

Hephasteus's picture

I think how it works is like this. It's an ionizing energy. The upper atmosphere is populated entirely by the most extremely ionizing substances. Probably why they call it an ionophere. Anyway ionization affects the electrical force. The electrical force is a like a true field effect force from physics theory. In that it's a force that exists everywhere without any localization. Though we only experience it in some degree of combination with electromagnetics. My theory is that the electrical force without the magnetic force would exist everywhere in equal porportions. Magnetism as we understand it exists in a very localized fashion. Distance squared is how it drops off in electromagneticsm. But magnetic forces from magnetism drop off at distance cubed rate. But we still only experience a narrow confinement of these 2 forces. In other words in complete absense of magnetism electrical forces would never drop off and never experience any sort of voltage differential. A purely magentic force would be so confined without being spread out and unconfined by the electrical force that it would exist nowhere with pure and total potential difference between anything surrounding it. There of course would be no voltage associated with a pure magnetic force.

Anyway these two forces the electrical force and the magenetic force both affect each other. And distance just is totally irrelevant under the right cicrumstances. So by affecting the ionosphere you affect the way magnetic forces between the sun and the earth operate. Ionize the upper atmosphere and you force open normally somewhat predictable magnetic 'portals' between the sun and the earth. This affects the magnetic core of the earth and causes earth quakes. But there has to be massive propensity there anyway. It's not like you can cause an earthquake thats not along the normal force and pressure granular boundries of the crust.

This affect causes a strange phenomenon I call 400kvolts everywhere. What's the voltage difference between the ionosphere and the core of the earth. 400k volts. What's the voltage differnece between I0 and jupiter. Why it's 400k volts. What's the voltage difference between Uranus and two of it's moons that travel very close to each other on an orbital path. Why it's 400kvolts. What happens when those two moons get close to each other. Why a really giant freaking 400kvolt lightening strike between the two. What would happen if you put an atmosphere on the moon. Why you'd create the 400k volt phenomenon and instead of the moon causing tidal forces it would also work like a gaint capacitor that charges up just shocks the shit out of the earth every once and while.

I live in Bangkok.  My neighborhood is suddenly *filled* with Japanese families that have just moved here.  This is a major, major trend.

I wrote about this in the article below.

Japan will soon be deserted.  One of the world's busiest and most important hubs is only just downwind from one of the worst nuclear disasters ever.  It will be a ghost town.  Massive deflation will hit the Japanese industry.  The trickle of people moving now will turn into a rush of tens of millions.  Many will never visit their homeland of Japan again.

Thanks Mr Lennon Hendrix. - A very moving story.

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

You are welcome, Herman. 

Such a lonely planet we live in nowadays.  Ideals have become isolated, entertainment  fairs better than nurishment.  Hopefully people wake up and know that we are who we have been waiting for, so to join hands and sing the banksters back to hell.

Herman Strandschnecke's picture

It would be more lonely without the internet and truth news.

It is really funny watching the Chinese government trying to play whack-a-mole with internet rumors. They are going to have to so some serious firing squad action in public for rumors to abate - it's just too much fun to make them up and spread them.

Have you heard the latest? The Japanese are all moving to Tibet at the invitation of the Dalai Lama.

I'm no conspiracy theorist, but anyone who denies that a major radiological (and out of control) event is taking place on a relatively small mass of land (and island), and that those living there with resources aren't either bugging out or preparing to do so...

...let me be diplomatic...



Yes. Naive is the adjective that I shall choose to use. They are naive.

You know, it's not like Japan's leadership hasn't already hatched plans to literally move the capital of Japan to a different part of their territory, or anything like that. Naaaaaaw.

And this won't significantly adversely impact Japanese or Global Economic Activity.

agreed truth, always appreciate your truthful take in the sunshine.  and to think obummera actually said "sunshine is the greatest disinfectant" before his sock-puppet appointment by the alleged democratic majority!

the island is f'd and so are the rest of us.  it's certainly not just the land either.  the air, the ocean water and now crops around the world are affected.

this was the biggest f up ever that we got to witness.

plus there are still more reactors to f up!  especially in Japan while earthquakes continue.
