This accident in south China is a true nuclear tragedy, at least alike Chernobyl.
The independent Geiger monitor website uradmonitor has several Geigers in south China in the Wuchuan area ; most of them stopped the same day and two were shut down after spiking very much. Typhoon Bebinca was above the area on that day. It was a sodium-cooled fast reactor – this is simple to find as they explode wholly instantly as there is a positive void coefficient. Even with a shell, the sodium filling it up will again detonate. My article on Chernobyl demonstrates it was a SFR. It also is simple to understand why a SFR would be near the border where there are lots of military tensions. (Na24’s short half life and usefulness as powerful neutron source for missiles.
Two Geigers are showing the blast nevertheless, one that stopped the same day, immediately, indicated 200 microSv/h as last value, stopping as it spiked (above), another indicates ~8 milliSievert/h as value for September 26. I cannot get earlier set of datas for this Geiger right now.
I’ve explained how hurricanes aim at nuclear reactors because naturally the depression seeks the areas with localized overpressures : the heat emanating from the reactors (70% of the thermal energy lost in nature) attracts hurricanes.
Here is the Vietnamese keyword for cancer spiking circa 15 days after the hurricane ended in that area. And below “lung cancer”.
Stomach cancer spikes slightly later. Nanoparticulates travel slowly in the body.
Ovary cancer also spiked, later – nanoparticulates in the body of the exposed Vietnamese have then come down :
Leukemia also peaking with a delay – for the same reasons, bone marrow is reached by the nanoparticulates with a delay after contamination.
The fallout from this Chinese accident traveled even to the USA but it unsignificant for the USA in comparison with the Brunswick atomic accident (it’s an issue of what’s felt vs. long term damage) – uranium and other heavy alpha emitters travel less far and it is obvious that the pain felt in lungs was mostly from fission products (the actual yield of cancers will be low).
I have exposed in my academic article the pathways of alpha emitting nanoparticulates and how they tend to affect particularly the bottom of the body (digestive tract, genital apparatus) as well as cardiovascular diseases, neurological diseases, immune and endocrine disorders, cancers in general (of course), neuromuscular disorders and much more, esp. hereditary disorders in children, causing very long-term damage, increasing over time as half lives of alpha emitting decay product shorten. Sports, a healthy diet (lots of vegetables and veggie proteins, no meat, no alcohol, no drugs), frequent ejaculation (for men AND women) allow to evacuate progressively some of the nanoparticulates and cannabis oil keeps at bay the diseases (never mix with opioids – the anticancer properties of cannabis and its thousands of other medical properties have been vastly demonstrated in scientific literature). So, as pointed out in my Twitter thread above, this is more an issue for the region around South China than for the US West Coast !
I have taken the data in Vietnam but more countries were covered in radioactive dust : the extreme south of China of course where a patch of land is simply impossible to live on now around the destroyed reactor, and where the hurricane spinned. Dust fell on Laos, on northern Thailand, on Cambodia. All of Vietnam was covered as winds spinned around the subcontinent to come back to the area of Ho Chi Minh City. Google Trends shows that the cancers spiked in the North and the South of Vietnam, not only the North.
Here’s lung cancer in Ho Chi Minh City and nearby Can Tho :
and Da Nang in the center of the country :
Here we see how the radioactive cloud was so dense it produced a “dense overcast” in the hurricane seen from satellite.
See my article on the other nuclear accidents of 2018 caused by hurricanes in the US with links to more in S Korea and Japan. And click this Twitter thread below for images of breaks in US PWR shells with Google satellite view (evidenced with pixel censorship and, in one case (Port St Lucie 2017) traces of strong burns near the shell. The PWR accidents are more easily contained thanks to the shell but the radioactive waste from the accident (the whole reactor that melt down) has to be eliminated and in the last image below we see actually censorship of the water flowing. Some black crosses and white crosses. Radioactive dirt concealed.
