#Fukushima I Nuke Plant: Reactor No.1 Core's Temperature Over 400-Degree Celsius

Yomiuri Shinbun (in Japanese, 11:25AM JST 3/23/2011):

Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said in the press conference this morning that the temperature of the reactor core (inside the Containment Vessel) of the Reactor 1 is over 400-degree Celsius [over 752 Fahrenheit].

I hate to say it but my predictions have come true in the order that I made them.

Dare I say it, criticality then supercriticality? As is the case with anything, there comes a point where fixing something badly broken becomes impossible. We have passed that
point here. Nuclear plants are a crap shoot. They hum along for 18 months at a stretch
and other than highly toxic spend fuel gets stored in ever increasing piles on site. This
simply cannot be sustained. Just stop taking out your trash for a year and you will see
what I mean. If we cannot shoot it into the sun (not all at once) why not drop it (not all a once) where geologic plates are subducting and let it get drawn down into undersea magma which
is already radioactive. Conservation, Wind, and Solar Energy need to be our focus.
The first viable fusion plants won't be ready until around 2050. We need to phase nuclear
power out as soon as possible. We don't need the stuff in our back yards and certainly not
in our bodies. Now marinate on that for a while.
