we all know that pure communism does not work, and pure capitalism does not either because capitalism is in effect a small group of parasitic individuals that exploit and destroy the masses of poor in order to create untaxed dynastic wealth for the few.
Seems rational until you realize Japan has the same problem the US does.

compound annual inflation rate, the appropriate term to measure this year over year inflation measurement? This level of inflation will make it difficult for people to properly value the products they buy relative to the products value in silver.. A value buying guide might be a useful tool going forward.

The US bombed Iraq because they supposedly had WMDs. Yet, here we have a nuke power plant spewing WMDs all over the world and unless I'm missing something, nobdy seems to care.
Maybe it's just me, but these days, I can't make sense of much of anything...
Is it terrorism or a "man made disaster"???...it is hard to tell these days...LOL.
Maybe if TEPCO had started several wars with neighboring power companies as it raped, tortured and committed genocide on it's own people it would make more sense ;-)
If TEPCO had done all that as a sponsored puppet of a certain rogue superpower, they would definitely have been "liquidated" sooner or later.
Of course if TEPCO had oil or opium, CIA advisors & the marines would be on the ground right now. :-)
Just like Libya!...hell they even let em loose to lead the charge!...LOL.
Allah Akbar!...or sumpin ;-)
"getting better in some ways"
I guess I missed that part unless of course you choose to take ANYTHING the Japanses Govt is saying as having more than 15% truth
pay my family $1 mill i ll go pour the damned concrete
2nd attempt to stop the water gushing from the pit failed, for now. TEPCO said so in the latest press conference. Polymer, newspaper, and sawdust failed to stop water. But not to worry. They will try it again tomorrow.
This is a good summary;
The most interesting bit is his assessment of the likelihood of massive damage to the fuel rods based on his experience at Three Mile Island.
Come one come all Fukushima Beach Party Aug. 18th !!!
10,000 bio-robots cool maybe they can all help out at the power plant completely naturally of course. Register early I'm sure this year will be standing room only.
Very good presentation about the Fukushima crisis on Friday at the University of Melbourne School of Engineering by four eminent scholars. Particularly interesting presentation by Iven Mareels, Dean of Biomedical Engineering, who estimates the likelihood of a meltdown at the various reactors – reactor 1, around 70 percent, reactor 2 around 30 percent, and reactor 3, probably 100 percent.
Listen to talks and slides at :
Thank-you for the link. These engineers presentations were somewhat reassuring though the voice inflections of the second speaker were a bit disconcerting. These engineers carry a bit more weight in reducing my level of apocalyptic expectancy than any other information I've seen, read or heard recently. Over-all, I'll remain in an elevated state of concern in No Cal but prayerful for success in the efforts of the brave souls fighting the good fight in Fukushima. God speed.
They need a great big caulking gun! Easy peasy...I won't say it!
I wonder if the "its never been a better time to buy" commercials have been played yet......bubbles need all the help they can get, right? If it were America you can bet your ass they would've ran by now.
Well, I am watching this movie on Syfy, called Meteor, and they are shooting down meteors with something called Stinger missiles. Maybe they could just shoot some of these at Fukishima???

And the NYT article is now scrubbed clean of the reference.
All the news that's fit to censor.
Also, Reuters' article you quoted for Reactor 2 gives an impression that the crack in the pit refers to the concrete pit where the reactor is located. That is not true at all. The pit is by the ocean, some distance away from the reactor building, and it is a pit for electrical work.
Same here...it was so heavily nuanced the point was lost ;-)
Chu's an idiot. His only skill is freeze drying atoms...
"Chu's an idiot."
Yes he is.
This is a man, who after he was appointed, was surprised to find oil was a part of the energy complex and thus fell under his purview as Secretary of Energy.
He fits right in up there.
Hulk has got that right about that moron Chu here's an article about insane Nobel prize winners who talk out their ass. Why isn't Dr. Science trapping all the radioactive atoms with a laser?
Yes I concur Hulkster!
Plugging the pit with concrete already failed. My blog:
Also, check out AREVA's presentation on the plant situation:
Thanks... you've posted lots of important material... love your blog.
thanks, good info
Listen up you little doomsday loving freak...
Repeat after me... "There is no problem at Fukushima!" :)
Time has long come for the Nipponese government to start the algal plume program.
Above Fox News video:
-about 8 seconds in she says: "...melted fuel is causing a small uncontrolled chain reaction there, sending out a burst of heat, radiation, and a blue flash of light. From what we understand this is not good news for the workers trying to prevent a nuclear meltdown there."
Really? From what you understand it's NOT good news? Thanks for the analysis...
-and then about 1 minute and 8 seconds in the reporter in Japan shows off 2 dosimeters while lamenting lack of dosimeters for TEPCO workers. Wait what?
Also note that the brave dosimeter expert---risking life and limb to bring us the truth!---is "reporting LIVE from Osaka" ... 350 miles away from Fukushima!!!!!!!!! (for those Americans who can't even find their way home from Walmart without a GPS, that's like "reporting live" from North Carolina on an incident in New York).
Dr. Manhattan wins:
The next phase will be when hundreds of thousands of people will get radiation sickness.
And when thousands will start to die, we'll get the kind of panic that will need mayor coverups.
Actually, the nice thing is that the radioactive garbage is leaking into the ocean. Next year when the Japanese go whaling they won't need lights.
Coverup? All they'll need to do is move the decimal point a half dozen places to the left. How hard is that? Fukushima.Fifty.Forever! ...
We will not know the truth about this for another decade when the rates of cancer and birth defects have skyrocketed.
and those who work with and for the UN will continue to blame all illness on obesity and/or tobacco.... or whatever their favorite "sinful" product is of the time...
"and those who work with and for the UN will continue to blame all illness on obesity and/or tobacco.... or whatever their favorite "sinful" product is of the time..."
But of course, the nuke disaster is tax revenue neutral to negative, whereas there's just oodles and boodles compliant, zombified, mindless busy bodies to act as the tools of global statists everywhere.
And don't forget alcohol and that very worst offender...table salt!...a per grain tax on the noxious poison should be imposed globally...for the good of the people you see ;-)
Don't be stupid.
those green peace guys
should be dressed up like whales
So if you look at a map and the fact that this deadly disaster is spewing radioactive material into the oceans, how long before their fishing industry and the pacific ecology is affected ?
I guess we won't really be sure until Charlie the Tuna starts extolling the benefits of having 3 eyes and not to worry about mercury content because its the isotopes stored in the fatty tissues thats the real killer...:-)
Sushi anyone ?
I love this: "...water was preventing the concrete from hardening." What??? Water makes concrete harden. Is this more BS from TPTB.
It has to be in the proper proportions...too little water, and it's a clumpy, cracked mess. Too much water, and it's a slurry that can't harden properly. Add to that the salt from the water that they've been dumping all over it, and that complicates things greatly. Succinctly, though, if the crack is large enough, long before the concrete can even stabilize, the lime and sand wash out, and you're left with a pile of gravel aggregate submerged in water.
