Hi, I am Arnie Gundersen from Fairewinds.
This is the
second December since the Fukushima Daiichi accident. I thought I would
use this video to talk about things that were painfully obvious to
Fairewinds viewers back in 2011, that really have not been internalized
by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission even since then. So we are going to
use this video as a training video for the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission, so that they can better understand what Fairewinds viewers
have known for the last 2 years.
The problems that I want to
talk about today are twofold. One is the containment integrity and the
other is what happens when you do not cool a nuclear power plant,
something that we call the loss of the ultimate heat sink. Well let's
get right to it. The first topic is the containment integrity. Tokyo
Electric released a report in September of this year, and they gave it
to the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency. The report is a
more thorough analysis of the explosions at Fukushima Daiichi. And it
discusses things that they have learned in 2012 that they did not
incorporate in their analysis back in 2011. Well, if you have been
watching the Fairewinds site, we knew exactly the problems that Tokyo
Electric is now identifying in 2012.
