    I'd be more concerned that the bars would heat enough to melt to the core of the planet causing a caldera larger than Yellowstone to open under Japan.

    Well, I do not know much about these things, so i am waiting for someone who knows a lot more this than I do, to make real out of all this.

    You clearly are blowing some smoke somewhere. If such an event happened you forgot a few casualties. North and South Korea, Tawian, A good portion of China. large parts of former USSR, all waters surrounding Japan such as Sea of Japan, the Philippine Sea. And that is just the easily noted damage.

    There's a bunker up near Rattlesnake Lake that just had a vacancy!

    Aliens invading earth and enslaving mankind is a more real possibility than that.

    Do these crack heads ever consider how much nuke material was released into the environment with all the nuke testing we did in the 20th century? Fact is, we're still here.

    I don't know so I posted here looking for clarification. So, are you saying that the nuclear material isn't a danger? How could that be?

    "Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity. About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 — roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-Daichi site contains nearly half of the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel). It is important for the public to understand that reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet." (Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy)

    Being that there is a typo in the very first sentence, the bloggers credentials as an author are questionable.

    I'm wondering what prepers/survivalists learned from the nut job up in WA. First thing I noticed, he left clues to the bunker location at his house. I guess he thought it would burn with the house.
    Another thing, any fixed position, ie bunker can be overcome. Look at the huge bunkers that hitler built. All blown up easily. Stashing away some supplies for an emergency is a good idea. However, I don't care how many guns you have, You can't defend a fixed position from someone who realy wants or needs your stuff.

    No one is even sure how many of those rods in reactor #4 contain MOX: plutonium based fuel. I think those rather hyperbolic claims were based on the calculation that a SINGLE fuel rod of MOX contains enough Pu to kill something-point-something billion human beings. There's no way that a collapse of #4 is going to evenly distribute that Pu around the globe, but there's also no way to capture it once it's lost, either.

    It is true that Arnie Gundersen and some other nuke experts have said that if that MOX gets out, they're taking their families and heading South of the equator - permanently.
