Skip to comments.Japan temporarily pulls backs workers from Nuke Plant

Fox news saying they left the plant
There were many involved who did what needed to be done and knew it would end up killing them. Mighty brave.
We all have a reference point now for going into, ‘Nuclear Meltdown Mode’
Lunch break! Hundreds of internet posts over lunch break.
Not even close. Nobody mentioned "The China Syndrome" or "Silkwood," two of the great propaganda pieces of the left.
Crisis over - they are back in. They didn’t just leave and run away - as the thread made it sound.
They had a break - took a breather - rested up - going back in!
No big deal and nothing that hasn’t happened earlier today.
They are getting things under control one step at a time. They wouldn’t be there if they didn’t think they could handle this.
Even if there is a total meltdown it isn’t THAT big of a deal. Yeah - not good - but not the end of man as we know it.
This will be easily contained in the coming days.
Just a slow process.
Can’t rush putting out a nuclear plant. Takes time. As expected.
Buy Sapporo or Kirin or some Japanese beer.

CNN nuke scientist is really concerned if it is true the workers are gone for good. I have heard other reports saying they had to leave due to high radiation levels. Time will tell....very soon.
U make a great cheerleader.....to bad most of them are blonde....lol!
Sorry, the Japanese engineers I’ve met are more rigorous.
I wish you were joking.
You do know that he’s going to Brazil on Friday.
I was thinking more Katrina in terms of stealing me a case of Heineken. Don’t wanna lose my clearance, so I guess I’ll pay for it.
Japan’s interior minister confirmed the workers were pulled until the radiation declined and at the gate they did.
In a rational world, where people use reason and science to make decisions, there would indeed be many new nuke plants constructed.
Unfortunately, the slimy, contemptible, immoral, power hungry corrupt political class dominates the major institutions that have sway over such decisions. So, no new nuke plants for the foreseeable future.
With TEPCO announcing they were leaving because the radiation level was too high, it is hard to believe it was simply lunch.
Japan shares surge; central bank adds further $43B - ap
TOKYO Japanese stocks rebounded Wednesday, recovering some of the massive losses sustained the last two days following a devastating earthquake and tsunami. Other Asian indexes also bounced back despite the still unknown impact of the disaster that engulfed Japan’s northeastern coast Friday.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index temporarily surged above 6 percent but then softened after Japan suspended operations to prevent a stricken nuclear plant from melting down after a surge in radiation made it too dangerous for workers to remain at the facility. The index ended its morning session up 4.4 percent to 8,981.14.
Could make bigger headlines if it was a smoke break.
I am tired of uninformed "we are doomed" hysteria.
I hear you topher. Otoh, at the risk of sounding shocking I will say that what is happening at these plants appear to be within their design specifications. Iow, these failures are all within the containment systems’ performance criteria. Chernobly got far outside its design specs, hence the huge relief effort in that case.
