US Orders News Blackout Over Crippled Nebraska Nuclear Plant

"A shocking report prepared by Russia’s Federal Atomic Energy Agency (FAAE) on information provided to them by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) states that the Obama regime has ordered a “total and complete” news blackout relating to any information regarding the near catastrophic meltdown of the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant [photo top left] located in Nebraska.

According to this report, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant suffered a “catastrophic loss of cooling” to one of its idle spent fuel rod pools on 7 June after this plant was deluged with water caused by the historic flooding of the Missouri River which resulted in a fire causing the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) to issue a “no-fly ban” over the area.

Located about 20 minutes outside downtown Omaha, the largest city in Nebraska, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant is owned by Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) who on their website denies their plant is at a “Level 4” emergency by stating: “This terminology is not accurate, and is not how emergencies at nuclear power plants are classified.”

  • After googling on "Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant" together with "disaster" I did find entries for MSM sources inside the US. (I got a similar result when I substituted "blackout" for "disaster.") Let me see if I've got this straight. Barry has issued a news blackout on the subject, and there are more than 100 thousand google hits about a disaster at the nuclear plant. It reminds me of Mark Twain's old saying, "Three people can keep a secret as long as two of them are dead."

    If there really is a nuclear disaster there, I'd like to send a big thank-you to Jimmy Carter, who never did understand the distinction between Type 1 and Type 2 errors, and who put the kibosh on reprocessing. I'll send another big thank-you to all of the paranoid NIMBYs in Nevada, who were able to kill the Yucca Mountain project.

      This article looks like a version of one that came out in The Nation. It had my interest until the second page where it claimed that the Obama administration was waging a war on the coal industry. That the clean coal power generation industry was under attack and that rates would have to go up my many multiples. Yeah right. I view this as conservative propaganda.

        what i think of it is that I'm pretty beaten down and tired and I just can't get it up to try and split the wheat from the chaf, so much BS flying around in general and apparently a hall of mirrors in terms of different agendas out here with people being paid to get on sites just such as this - well, maybe not this, probably not worth the trouble - but actually blogging disinformation. So you have a myriad of non profits, think tanks then a host of corrupted scientist and scholars not to mention corrupted journalist. I just don't have the will for it any more.

        Someone wake me up when the apocalyse is over
        • Well they say a picture is worth a thousand words so, here's your 1000 plus words:

          Fort Calhoun near Omaha, Nebraska

          "On June 6, 2011, the Fort Calhoun pressurized water nuclear reactor 20 miles north of Omaha, Nebraska entered emergency status due to imminent flooding from the Missouri River. A day later, there was an electrical fire requiring plant evacuation.

          Then, on June 8th, NRC event reports confirmed the fire resulted in the loss of cooling for the reactor's spent fuel pool. The discussion includes specific details of the technical failures at Fort Calhoun, the risks of coolant loss at overcrowded "spent" fuel pools, and the national hazards of nuclear facilities along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, and other water sites during the current period of floods and climate change."

            not sure it's even true but if so, WTF? My wife has no thyroid, grew up in south Texas surrounded by oil fields?
            • As of June 5, 2011, The Japan Times reported that radiation in the No. 1 plant was measured at 4,000 milliseverts per hour. To put that in perspective, a worker would receive a maximal “permissible” dose in 4 minutes. In addition there are over 40,000 tons of radioactive water under that reactor with more radioactivity escaping into the air and sea. Fuel rods are believed to have melted and sunk to the bottom of reactors 1, 2, and 3. Tepco, the corporate owner, took more than two months to confirm the meltdowns and admitted lying about the levels of destruction and subsequent contamination, resulting in “Public Distrust.” Over 100,000 tons of radioactive waste are on the site.

              To get a better picture of the reality of this tragedy, here is a link regarding the above:

              By not addressing or disclosing the situation of the Nebraska nuclear plant flooding and potential problems, it seems evasive, especially after the tragedy in Japan, which is not over yet and may not be for years. With more rainfall on the way and tornado/hurricane season upon us you would think there would be more attention to the potential danger of the situation. The fact that it isn’t in the news makes it appear as if there is a cover up because…. well, it isn’t in the news. The potential flooding, the fire, the enactment of the 2 mile no fly zone - these are all things that just miiiiight make the evening news, but they aren’t. If it weren’t for the internet, the news would not be out all.

                Same companies own the plants, own the news, I believe? Didn't I read about the Nebraska plant that the plant couldn't have a problem because it has been shut down? But above read that the problem is in the spent fuel rod pool, which if I understand this stuff these rods in the pools would still be dangerous long after the reactor is shut down?
