Would it leak into the sea?
If yes, how bad would it be as compared to FUKUSHIMA?

siao. gas leak is the same as fukushima?

Reading with a pinch of salt. If this could happen to a nuclear reactor what about those in other countries?

Oh yeah. And now US is on the offensive on how bad China is. NATO which is a force to counter the Soviets(cold war era) in Europe they can also get involved with the "China Threat" which is so damn far away. LoL...

All these propagandas are just to generate hate. If you have lost your edge and cant compete, dont have to call the kettle black or pot black.

read the report.. basically is saying nothing. raise safety detection level is consider melt down. siao lang everywhere

Nuclear Power Plant

 

Regardless which country or which generation, the risk of environmental issues or catastrophic meltdown cannot be completely eliminated.

 

Countries with huge land mass can re locate the population should the need be.

 

However, even the thought of having a Nuclear Power Plant in or near Singapore is suicidal even the fact that accidents do happen even with the most stringent protocol and a meltdown where would the entire population migrate to....... Into Radx BMW?

 

We need to look for other safer energy source apart from nuclear.

I would make a joke about sending my MIL there

but that would be just silly and childish.

:D

My MIL is always angry and if she kenna 

a burst of Gemma radiation then I will

just be making a bigger problem for myself only.

We don't need new killer power.

Just need to take CO2 from the air and combine it with hydrogen from the rising oceans

and we can make petrol or diesel or kerosene or any petroleum products.

:D

Extracting CO2 from the air is one of the best ways to reverse climate change without resorting to expensive technologies, convoluted tax schemes or preventing billions of people from getting the energy they need to have a good life.

The best most direct strategy, that has the least bad side-effects, is to remove carbon directly from the atmosphere and make something useful out of it – like fuel – that would further lessen the burden on the environment.

Direct Air Capture system directly removes CO2 from the atmosphere, purifies it, and produces a pipeline-ready compressed CO2 gas using only energy and water. This CO2 can be combined with non-fossil fuel-generated hydrogen, to produce ultra-low carbon intensity hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline, diesel, and Jet Fuel-A.

When even the french break protocol and go out to sound warning... you gotta ask yourself .. what the hell is really happening.

 

"The warning included an accusation that the Chinese safety authority was raising the acceptable limits for radiation detection outside the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong province in order to avoid having to shut it down, according to a letter from the French company to the US Department of Energy obtained by CNN."

The company followed up with DOE on June 8 asking for an expedited review of their request, according to a memo obtained by CNN.

"The situation is an imminent radiological threat to the site and to the public and Framatome urgently requests permission to transfer technical data and assistance as may be necessary to return the plant to normal operation," read the June 8 memo from the company's subject matter expert to the Energy Department.

Framatome reached out to the US government for assistance, the document indicates, because a Chinese government agency was continuing to increase its limits on the amount of gas that could safely be released from the facility without shutting it down, according to the documents reviewed by CNN.

When asked by CNN for comment, the Energy Department did not directly address the memo's claim that China was raising the limits.

In the June 8 memo, Framatome informed DOE the Chinese safety authority has continued to raise regulatory "off-site dose limits." It also says the company suspects that limit might be increased again as to keep the leaking reactor running despite safety concerns for the surrounding population.

"To ensure off-site dose limits are maintained within acceptable bounds to not cause undue harm to the surrounding population, TNPJVC (operator of Taishan-1) is required to comply with an regulatory limit and otherwise shut the reactor down if such a limit is exceeded," the June 8 memo reads.

It notes that this limit was established at a level consistent with what is dictated by the French safety authority, but "due to the increasing number of failures," China's safety authority, the National Nuclear Safety Administration (NNSA) has since revised the limit to more than double the initial release, "which in turn increases off-site risk to the public and on-site workers."

As of May 30, the Taishan reactor had reached 90% of the allegedly revised limit, the memo adds, noting concerns the plant operator may be "petitioning the NNSA to further increase the shutdown limit on an exigent basis in an effort to keep running which in turn would continue to increase the risk to the off-site population and the workers at the plant site."

The NNSA is China's nuclear safety regulatory authority. It oversees the implementation of safety standards at facilities like Taishan.

......

Still, Rofer, the retired nuclear scientist, warns that a gas leak could indicate bigger problems.

"If they do have a gas leak, that indicates some of their containment is broken," Rofer said. "It also argues that maybe some of the fuel elements could be broken, which would be a more serious problem."

"That would be a reason for shutting down the reactor and would then require the reactor to be refueled," Rofer told CNN, adding that removing the fuel elements must be done carefully.

Westinghouse AP-1000 reactors which us refuse to share technical knowledge.

Framatome had reached out to the US in order to obtain a waiver that would allow them to share American technical assistance in order to resolve the issue at the Chinese plant. There are only two reasons why this waiver would be granted, and one is an "imminent radiological threat," the same verbiage used in the June 8 memo.

The memo claims the Chinese limit was increased to exceed French standards, yet it remains unclear how that compares to US limits.

Framatome need a waiver to share technical assistance. I bet you the chinese partners are just waiting for them to share this technical knowledge.

If it is sensitive technology, then it's wishful thinking on China's part that it can try this stunt to steal more technologies.

Which country in it's right mind can trust China after it's covid cover up?

Probably need to shut down the plant if China is unable to support the operation.

It's better to be honest with the world and solve the problem early, than to cover up and give a big problem later to the entire world.
