Just wanted to share this article with you and keep informed. Also Potassium Iodate or Iodine is nice to have on those days when nuclear fallout is above you......(it protects your thyroid). Take what you may from it and back to oil and gas, it still stinks!
MOX is bad because it will burn hotter then regular uranium. This was warned to be a bad fuel IF the plant were to come close to meltdown. Basically a MOX burning plant will meltdown sooner, easier. It will also push much more radiation into the air. More on that in a minute...
A hydrogen explosion has been confirmed at reactor #3, the MOX burning reactor. The hydrogen was created when the fuel rods are above water and interact with steam. If the hydrogen explodes then the rods that made the hydrogen are also exposed to the atmosphere. The shields are blown wide open now.
First off, this means a lot of radiation is being ejected from the plant and will poison many in the direct vicinity and those down winds. And if this isn't bad enough, it gets worse, WAY WORSE!!!
MOX naturally burns hotter. When the meltdown fuel rods receive fresh oxygen it begins to burn even hotter. And when I say burn, I mean the fission process. Normal Uranium Fuel will begin the "China Syndrome" when mixed with fresh oxygen.
The China Syndrome is when the core and everything around it melts into a super hot blob. The ground melts away and the blob sinks into the Earth. It would continue all the way to the core but it won't. It will hit a water table eventually. And when it does.......KABOOOOOMMMMM!!!!!!!!
The instant steam bomb mixed with used and unused MOX fuel will travel up the carved tube to the surface. Nothing man made will hold this back. It will eject this super heated steam far into the atmosphere where the steam will flash freeze and form radioactive clouds really high up. These clouds will be caught up by the Jet Stream. Which happens to be directly over head of the reactor.
So, this is it people. Earth is not looking good! Let's pray to God someone finds a way to prevent the China Syndrome or else........................all that radiation will soon be in the upper atmosphere to circle the Earth in days.
