So what’s the major demographics of the nearby towns?
I'm sure at least some of them are scorpios
^This guy with the jokes.
There are non stop industrial "accidents" for a reason.
It stops the normies focusing on what the globalists are doing to destroy western civilisation in totality. These are NOT fucking accidents.
I think they're "sort-of" accidents. They're the result of a general dumbing down of the population and quota hires, along with constant raping of the economy to fund everything in the rest of the world while neglecting the home front. Like a married prostitute that ignores her husband's needs, but he barely notices his clothes haven't been washed and his food is ready-made garbage because he can barely get off the sofa. And his cock is buried under many folds of blubber.
There were also the conservative boomers who had all the tribal knowledge of the systems, that retired because of the vaccine mandates. This is a major reason we have issues now. Massive brain drain.
There was never a plan of succession. Boomers have always had a nasty habit of pulling up ladders behind them to mitigate the threat of youngins nipping at thier heals. They favored the second string, the protected classes and jealously guarded thier assigned duties as personal fiefdoms. The less anyone knew about what they were actually doing, the more financially and professionally secure they felt. The more inflated the job requirements became with made up certs and schools the better. And they always got grandfathered. None of the stupid ever applied to the boomers.
Many of the industries now floundering have been time warps to the 70s that were totally inaccessible to those born after 1955. Post cold war, the nuke industry has been totally impenetrable to those younger than boomer or generation Jones age. The only people getting in were quota hires and personal favorites. When the boomers finally started aging out, they just up and left. All the simps left in thier wake are now lost, clueless and flailing. And of course the only help they get are infinitely more useless new hires fresh out of college or the navy, who don't have enough experience at life to differentiate thier own buttholes from thier own elbows.
It also hasn't helped that nuclear power as an industry has been legislatively banned from, progressing in anyway for the last 40yrs. To the point of being prohibited from making grossly needed upgrades. Much of the equipment and tech in nuke power plants has remained untouched and unchanged since the 70s. When the newest of them were designed and built. There has been much politically and thus legally mandated neglect of the nuke industry over the last 4 decades, because muh solar and wind farms. This leak will be used to finish off the only real answer to our energy needs. To all the lefties out there, the only people who hate nuke power more than you are big oil people.
Doubtful. Every boomer I know delegates 'systems' to younger people cuz 'muh technology' is hard.
How many of these places had the UNIONS up in arms over FORCED COVID mandates going back to 2021 (or other things)? Norfolk Southern did -- HUGE "ACCIDENT". XCEL ENERGY -- maybe, can't be sure. But on April 1, 2022, "Xcel Energy named in lawsuit alleging power lines were ‘substantial factor’ in Colorado fire" By Rebekah Riess, CNN Published 2:52 PM EDT, Fri April 1, 2022. But what they forgot to tell you was it may have been deliberately set by union employees. As of late November 2022, "A definitive cause of the fire, which was fueled by winds topping 100 miles an hour, remains undetermined. A video taken the morning of Dec. 30 (2021) shows Xcel equipment arcing or releasing sparks near where authorities believe the fire started. But a smoldering underground coal fire in the area and human activity (as in a deliberately set fire) are also under investigation. In other words, LABOR UNIONS are probably more to blame than the companies are-- but they can't let that cat out of the bag!
This hypothesis deserves investigation.
Yeah, he's about as funny as...oh, never mind.
Leo here :)
Old Leo here.
nah, they are all crabby people and their favorite number is 69.
Say it ain’t so throw.
And some Aquarius, or Aquarium according to my geiger counter.
Yes, even though this exposure would be considered rather mild in terms of dosage... the likelyhood of nearby people showing up with a higher than background level of cancers, especially later in life, is pretty much a guarantee.
We’re a red county. All river water flows right through Minneapolis and Saint Paul 40-50 miles downstream.
So this might kill off Minneapolis?
Nah. Somalis laugh at radiation. Theyll be there grilling the foot long rafioactive rats and collecting welfare long after all the leftists die off.
Somalis are leftists, at least in Minnedishu
Well fortunately it’s just north of Minneapolis, so maybe all the Somalis in “lil Mogadishu” get their water from that river. On the other hand, that river happens to be the Mississippi River and a millions of real Americans are fucked.
400,000 gallons in the Mississippi isn't much. It's about half a second of flow.
So you're saying you'd be willing to stand in the river up to your nose for half a second while 400,000 gallons of highly radioactive waste water rushes by?
On a River, it’s always best to be upstream of liberal bullshit.
Its NW Suburban, right on the edge of the concrete jungle. Prob half a million to 750k people within 25 miles. Could be even more
Seriously, quit with the BREAKING clickbait, Karen.
It's one of the mod's alts. I see it stickied all the time.
Pretty sure that it's an antique karen from the old T_D days.
Unless actual nuclear material was in the water, please tell me how water is "radioactive"?
Came here to say this!
Give me a break!
Honestly. It's so fucking sickening.
These dopamine-addicted losers care so much about social-media attention, they will do anything or say anything to get it. They're just as bad as social media addicted leftists/trannies are.
This happened in NOVEMBER
Cleanup is ongoing today. They finally couldn't keep it under wraps. The river you see in the picture is the Mississippi. If it reaches that it will flow to the Gulf of Mexico. Also it turns to a powder when evaporated. It can become ingested or airborne in the wind.
You can rest assured that the abundant wildlife is fully contaminated. I you took a deer within roaming range they are too and so are you. Not to mention the geese, ducks, pigeons, grouse, etc. which mirate.
The Governor was up for reelection when this was happening....
No, tritium does not turn to dust when it evaporates. It’s literally water.
Tritium is not water. Tritium is hydrogen-3, the radioactive isotope of hydrogen. It is a gas. 3H2O tritium oxide, also called super-heavy water or tritiated water is water.
Bruh, you need to learn how radiation works. It's not a chemical you fucking tard.
It is if you learned nuclear physics from B movie science fiction.
The power plant is right on the Mississippi River, but it is also sitting on a huge glacial sand deposit called the Anoka Sand Sheet which feeds rainwater and snow melt (all excess water) into a huge aquifer that sits under central Minnesota.
This is an alt for the retard that posted the comment before. No way you can find two people so sure of themselves while being so fucking stupid in the same place at the same time.... Unless you're at some liberal event, of course.
Exactly. It was built on the river to use the water as cooling. And the area is all sandy. In the old days this area was a major producer of beats, tubers and pumpkin because of the sandy loam soil.
I guess 3M and the Arden Hills Ammunition plant is no longer the biggest polluter of the MN aquifer.
And just let the public know yesterday.
So was it also retweeted today?
400K gallon “leak”
Mostly leakush but cancerful pieces. Of water.
Notes on Tritium (Hydrogen-3): Hydrogen-3 is very weak beta emitter with an energy of only 18 keV. Compare to Potassium-40 (bananas) which emits beta and gamma 1300 keV Tritium has a physical half-life of 12 years, but a biological half-life of only 10 days. This means that the vast majority of any tritium ingested leaves the body before it can deposit its decay energy.
Wait just one minute here, Fat. We can't have any actual science here. We're dealing in narratives! We've got a 4 month old "breaking" story and a whole series of top-level comments full of nothing but emoting and BS. Take your rational, logic post elsewhere!
I can't upvote your comment because you didn't begin it with BREAKING: .
Sorry, rules is rules.
Start soaking your iron sights in the water lads, free night sights
I have bought decaying tritium vials(with a phosphor lining) that glowed for years. Pretty neat.
Tritium night sights are a common gun accessory.
Holy fuck, they need to get on top of this quick.
Better send another $50 Billion to Ukraine.
They blame Trump in 3...2...
I thought the water wasn't radioactive in these unless the rod casings are compromised.
Depends on the type of radioactivity. In this case it seems to be tritium which is fairly mild in terms of radioactivity and it was extremely diluted as well. You could swim across that pond and nothing would happen to you.
Water doesn’t really get that radioactive. There are a number of isotopes that can be borne from exposure to neutron flux, deuterium and tritium (isotopes of hydrogen) can occur due to neutron capture reactions. Oxygen can undergo a neutron capture reaction that transmutes into Nitrogen before undergoing a beta minus decay back into oxygen in a very short time frame. There are a handful of other reactions that result in formations of shit like Ammonia but I’d have to look back at my texts to list them off.
For the most part though, it doesn’t stay irradiated for long (except tritium, which has a long half-life, but very low energy decay).
The term you are thinking is probably contaminated. If a fuel element is compromised then irradiated fragments of fuel, fuel poisons, fuel structural components, and fission product daughters can escape. The fission product daughters are what you worry about, because they are gaseous, they have significant energy decays, and they can take a while to decay. The structural components, fuel poisons, and fuel that can break off in microscopic pieces are extremely radioactive, but they would generally be confined to the system itself and most likely removed in a coolant purification process.
The scary shit is irradiated fuel, irradiated control rods, and irradiated cobalt-60. The only way that shits getting out is a pressure vessel explosion.
Lock up your fission product daughters, lock up your fission product wife!
I was under the impression that water provided a natural insulation to radiation?
It does. Water provides shielding, it has a decent tenth thickness (it attenuates radiation to 1/10th its initial value per unit of distance), and does a good job at not getting irradiated (or staying irradiated if it does). It can act as a double ended sword because it can entrain small particles of highly radioactive material, which is generally handled through a purification system that removes them.
Thanks for the info. 👍
exactly. water is used for cooling and is not normally radioactive. the story is a 4 month old fake news fear porn that the low IQ people believe.
Feels like sabotage.
Starting the new narrative, "nuclear bad" must use batteries and windmills and shit.
I've seen this one.
We all get laser vision!
And three eyed fish
"C'mon Mr. Bunrns, eat the 3 eyed fish"
There really were three eyed fish off NJ, near nuclear power plants. I saw them.
New it was just a matter of time until the "No Nuclear" movement got a new rallying cry.
BUT, this happened during a Dem POTUS so all is good. Nothing to see here.
I've seen this before. Alaska oil tanker crash under Bush was the leading story and almost all they talked about for months including the trial of the captain. It was so bad I stopped turning on the news when I got home and that was Fox, CNN was worse.
Deepwater Horizon oil rig under Obama, largest marine oil spill in history. Even though it leaked for three months it was big coverage for a month then nothing. Blah blah the oil breaks down and decomposes in seawater etc, It was surreal.
Hear much about the East Palestine chemical spill and burn-off lately?
This is stupid.
I used to work in a nuclear plant and ‘contaminated’ water has such a low rad level literally a banana gives you more exposure. It is essentially water that cools the reactor which has microscopic ‘pieces’ of the pipes slowly shear off and go through the reactor and become ionized so it is technically radioactive but to a basically 0 degree. Not to dilute the fear porn, and I definitely think our infrastructure is under attack, but I think this isn’t the major catastrophe people want it to be.
Just a narrative that nuclear bad.
More importantly, were the emergency responders diverse?
I'm always extremely suspect of any "disaster" or threat reporting coming out about nuclear power plants because the Left and Green people LOVE to hate on nuclear power in general, which to me is very odd because it's cleaner than just about every other form of energy production as long as it's done safely and smartly. The Left and Greens know nuclear energy can be part of the solution's, and they've been irrationally shitting on it with invalid illogical fearmongering arguments because they'd rather the earth burn up than admit their grand ideological utopia is unworkable.
Another day another oopsie.
Let me guess,
a 3 a.m. leak?
They want us dead. They want to rape our children. They think it's funny.
If this story had any merit then the left would be all over it because they HATE nuclear. Tritium is also not very harmful especially in the extremely diluted dose it's in now. Whatever leaked is now long gone anyway.
Don't worry everybody, it was a mostly peaceful leak of nuclear hugs.
This has been happening for months but the nuclear plant didn’t report it until now
"Angry dad, you're fired!"
Right on cue! Need a nuclear "concern" so leftists can cry "Nuclear bad! EVERYTHING BAD EXCEPT.... EVERYTHING BAD!"
The bad news is there's a leak. The good news is that radioactive Somalians are a loss to no one. The extra good news for Minnesotans is that radioactivity adds flavor to lutefisk.
How is the water radioactive? Does it contain a higher percentage of heavy water? Dissolved radioactive isotopes of something else? Just plain water isn’t radioactive just because it was at a nuclear power plant.
And all of the water is super-purified so that it doesn't have any contaminants that could be promoted by neutrons. Which is why all deionizing resin that you might buy for your home drinking water system or laboratory water supply is called "nuclear grade" - because it is the same stuff the nuclear industry uses to purify their water.
Sure seems like we're under attack....
I mean, honestly, this sort of thing is to be expected when the person who's ostensibly in charge of this spends it's time stealing women's clothing, then modeling it on social media.
Do you want teenage mutant ninja turtles? Because this is how you get teenage mutant ninja turtles.
Anyone else think the US is suffering from a disproportionate amount of disasters that could be due to sabotage?
