Cold Shutdown? NOT!!!

Asahi: Water at 3 Fukushima reactors under 100 degrees for first time

"Water temperatures in the pressure vessels of three reactors at the Fukushima nuclear plant were all below 100 degrees for the first time since the crisis started, Tokyo Electric Power Co

"Achieving water temperatures below 100 degrees at all reactors of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant is one of the required conditions for a stable state known as "cold shutdown."

"However, further action is needed to prevent radioactive substances from spreading from the reactors, eliminate the dangers of hydrogen explosions and mitigate other potential risks."

This story would almost be funny if it wasn't so tragically awfull. The story reveals the lie at its heart. The third sentence tells all and contradicts the optimism of the first two sentences.

Yes it is true I'm not a nuclear engineer or physicist. But Tepco admitted melthroughs occurred months ago.

I recommend reading blogger Ex-SKF's recent post and the comments on this subject.

Japanese officials are now openly admitting to finding plutonium miles from the plant. How did plutonium get there?

The lies really need to stop so that the people of Japan and the rest of the world have an honest understanding of an ongoing critical situation that threatens human health and welfare for potentially hundreds of years.
