About the Chi-lung Port there (black square on the map).

About the nuke plants:

rad33red Chin Shan NPP – built in 1978

rad33red Kuosheng NPP – it’s a Mark III – what could go wrong?  Bonus: accident simulation paper

rad33red Lungmen NPP – a GE-Toshiba-Hitachi brainchild

Mining Awareness says it’s a 7.2M!

Hope it doesn’t make a big wave!

Great reporting! I had forgotten about these power stations.
They claim there was no tsunami: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/taiwan-earthquake-today-taipei-rocked-by-61-magnitude-quake-as-tremors-felt-across-country-a7057111.html I was just reading around the time it struck actually about Japan stealing Taiwan gold during WWII.

BTW, Riverbend Louisiana and Grand Gulf Mississippi are Mark IIIs. There aren’t many around. I think there is a third in the USA. They have slightly larger containments than Mark I – still too small – but have something to burn off hydrogen gas, which sounds ominous in the context of a nuclear power station.

Agree, and if they have to vent to burn off hydrogen gas, then I hope those reactors are already required to apply upgraded HEPA filters. ? If not, why not? If not, then action to change it should follow ?

Mining Awareness has a whole bunch on those HEPA filters if you look at old posts 🙂

They seem to have decided not to filter in an emergency from what I understand. I guess because it might cost them money? That or an extermination protocol. Totally mind boggling. Here were two posts on that: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2016/01/02/nuclear-lobby-nei-to-dominate-nrc-public-at-meeting-on-venting-radiation-into-the-environment-and-other-fukushima-lessons-not-learned/
https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2016/01/03/us-house-members-urge-filters-on-nuclear-reactor-vents-to-protect-public-environment-from-radiation-during-a-nuclear-power-accident/ Senator Markey is one of the only ones who tried to make them filter it.
The Windscale accident shows that filtering some helps. I think the filters caught 97% back then in the late 1950s. If not they say the English Lake District would be uninhabitable. Scalia tried to block filtering of mercury. The EPA still wants to allow discharging a lot of mercury, but just reduce it. Like a lot of radionuclides mercury stays toxic.

Thanks. That gives me something good and neutral to work on (I hope). I have some other things going but I have to step back to reduce anger.

Keep an eye on thos Florida storm …. Turkey Point is still leaking I bet. Hope the power stays on….

so weird! GE sold them on the idea of nukes. What I figure is GE is in the contract writing biz and Toshiba-
mits are in the heavy end.

I added your 7.2 article to the story….
Here’s what I think …
those 3 NPPs are discharging rad waste into the sea right there and I bet those fish near there are all contaminated. (opinion)

Many thanks. You are absolutely right. If people understood that these power stations were discharging radioactive waste in air and water legally all of the time they would be very upset. Even though TEPCO is underestimating the amount, in many ways they have been the most transparent because they said straight up that they had the legal right to dump something like 70,000 tonnes of tritium per year into the Pacific. It was the first I heard of the legal right to discharge radioactive waste. I had heard it was done but thought it illegal. I have more on HEPA that I need to get up. Basically one company waited 3 months to report defects and then let itself off. Going in too many directions as usual (Vets, German nuke waste, etc). I thought I might recycle an old Taiwan post along with a (now) still unposted article re VW, and saw the 7.2 M and the environmentalists suing in Taiwan.

Do you know if these earthquakes are on the same scale? I recall someone saying that Japan used a different scale but they seem to be the same. I would think that the Taiwanese government would have no interest in overestimating the size and they are right there!

flyingcuttlefish

yes, I did check the scale … they are on the 10 scale (not the 7 scale).
I did not check to see if China has nuke plants across the straight (Formosa stright maybe). ….
I will look at Climate Viewer later ….
