ammmmmmmmmm back, mo fo's, with a little pre-flight entertainment, so if you would like, to make your way, to the v.i.p lounge, and we can go and find out what's going on, on the naturalistic level's, why all the mass beaching's, and missing bee's,and why are flock's of birds, falling from the sky, is it because of the high amount of radiation, both in the air and water, and all manner of toxic pollutants, that are being pumped, into the atmosphere, (and us), on the daily basis, and the lack of containment of radiation, leaking from Fukushima Daiichi, cherynobyl, or maybe they, are just the latest in a string of covered up botched, clean up jobs, while all the while, taking the money and failing to adequately, clean up or house the contaminants, personally i think the best plan, is to jettison it all, into the far side of the sun, there's no mystery in it, its not a natural occurrence or the fault of the, "Bienenfresser", (bee-eater, a brightly coloured insectivorous bird, with a large head and a long down-curved bill, and typically with long central tail feathers), we cannot blame nature, for the loss of our little pollinating pals, without which a cascade effect of failed harvest, and starvation and poverty, and mass death will occur, as there have been a number of serious nuclear incidents, since the 1950's. here are details of the most serious,
Mayak or Kyshtym nuclear complex, (Soviet Union): 29 September 1957
A fault in the cooling system at the nuclear complex, near Chelyabinsk, results in a chemical explosion, and the release of an estimated 70 to 80 tonnes of radioactive materials into the air. Thousands of people, are exposed to radiation and thousands more, are evacuated from their homes. It is categorised as Level 6, on the seven-point International Nuclear Events Scale (INES).
Windscale nuclear reactor (UK): 7 October 1957
A fire in the graphite-core reactor, in Cumbria, results in a limited release of radioactivity (INES Level 5 a total fabrication it was a lot worse). The sale of milk from nearby farms, is banned for a month. The reactor cannot be salvaged and is buried in concrete. A second reactor on the site, is also shut down and the site decontaminated. Subsequently part of the site, is renamed Sellafield and new nuclear reactors are built. on top of the old ones, (ffs morons, what happens if the new ones fail?, 4x destructive capabilities),
Sodium Reactor Experiment Los Angeles, California, USA, July 1959
A partial meltdown occurred at the Sodium Reactor Experiment (SRE) due to cooling flow blockage that caused the reactor core to overheat. How did it happen?, The Sodium Reactor Experiment experienced extensive fuel damage, during a power run. Thirteen of forty-three fuel elements overheated, when the cooling flow provided by the liquid sodium was blocked, by tetralin, an oil-like fluid, which had leaked into the primary sodium loop, during prior power runs. This overheating caused the reactor core to fail. Fission products were released, from the damaged fuel into the primary sodium loop. Some of the fission products leaked from the primary sodium loop, into the high bay area, a region inside the building housing the reactor. Other fission products flowed, with the helium cover gas over the liquid sodium in the reactor pool to gaseous storage tanks. Fission products from the high bay area, and from the gaseous storage tanks, were processed through the filters of a ventilation system and discharged to the atmosphere, (irradiating the immediate local areas, and raising the background level globally),
Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (USA): 3 January 1961
A steam explosion in reactor SL-1 during preparation for start-up destroys the small US Army experimental reactor and kills three operators.
Enrico Fermi Unit 1 Frenchtown Charter Township, Michigan, USA, October 5, 1966
Coolant flow blockage in two fuel channels led to the partial meltdown of two fuel assemblies at Fermi Unit 1.
How did it happen? Fermi Unit 1 was the nation’s first and only commercially operating liquid metal fast breeder reactor. Vibrations caused a component within the reactor vessel to loosen, which blocked coolant flow when hydrodynamic forces carried it up the fuel sub-assemblies’ inlet nozzle. Workers did not notice what had occurred until core temperature alarms sounded. Several fuel rod sub-assemblies reached temperatures of up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit, causing them to melt. After the reactor was shut down for repairs, it was returned to partial operation periodically until 1972, but it was never again fully operational. It was officially decommissioned in 1975.
SL-1 Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA, January 3, 1961
The withdrawal of a single control rod, caused a catastrophic power surge and steam explosion, at the SL-1 boiling water reactor, that killed all the workers on duty at the time. (sabotage), How did it happen?, allegedly On January 3, 1961, workers were in the process of reattaching to their drive mechanisms control rods, they had disconnected earlier that day, to enable test equipment to be inserted, in the reactor core. They lifted the central control rod 20 inches, instead of the four inches that was required. This error caused the reactor to go critical, and its power to surge 6,000 times higher than its normal level in less than a second. As a result, nuclear fuel vaporised and a steam bubble was created. The steam bubble expanded, so quickly that it pushed water above it, against the reactor vessel, which caused it to jump out of its support structure. It hit an overhead crane, and then returned to the reactor vessel. In the process, all of the water and some of the fuel was released from the reactor vessel. All three workers on duty, received lethal doses of radiation, in addition to trauma from the explosion. (as if the trauma mattered, they were dead the minute it happened, their cells just didn't know it yet, poor fools),

Three Mile Island power plant, Pennsylvania (US): 29 March 1979
The Three Mile Island incident/accident, was the United States, worst of its kind, A cooling malfunction causes a partial meltdown in one reactor, resulting in a limited release of radioactivity (INES Level 5). The site's first reactor (TMI One), on the Susquehanna river was closed for refuelling. The second was at full capacity, when two malfunctions occurred, first there was a release of radioactive water, (further iridiating the global water supply), then radioactive gas vented to the atmosphere, and was detected on the perimeter. No deaths or injuries were reported.(initially maybe, but secondary and tertiary effects take time), It is considered the United States,worst nuclear accident and led to major safety changes in the industry.
Alabama, United States September 15, 1984 Athens

Chernobyl power plant (Soviet Union): 26 April 1986
One of four reactors explodes after an experiment at the power plant (INES Level 7). The resulting fire burns for nine days and at least 100 times more radiation than the atom bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima is released into the air. Radioactive deposits are found in nearly every country in the northern hemisphere. Two people die in the explosion and another 28 from acute radiation sickness in the immediate aftermath. Some experts predict hundreds of thousands of extra cancer deaths as a result of the disaster. (and yet no official apology or reparations, for the deaths of untold billions), A huge cover, known as the New Safe Confinement, is being built over the existing sarcophagus. It is expected to cover the site by 2013. (a totally falsified name, so the sheeple can sleep at night, not knowing, they may be experiencing high doses, it's just a glorified rain cover, and does nothing, to stop any leaks of radiation or irradiated water),

The Tokaimura accident shook confidence in the industry in Japan, Workers break safety regulations by mixing dangerously large amounts of treated uranium in metal buckets, setting off a nuclear reaction (INES Level 4). Two of the workers later die from their injuries, and more than 40 others are treated for exposure to high levels of radiation. Hundreds of residents living nearby were evacuated from their homes while the nuclear reaction continued, but were allowed home two days later.
Mihama power plant (Japan): 9 August 2004
Five people die in an accident at the plant in the Fukui province (INES Level 1). Seven people are also injured when hot water and steam leaks from a broken pipe. Officials insist that no radiation leaked from the plant, and there is no danger to the surrounding area. (a complete lie),
July 25, 2006 Forsmark, Sweden
An electrical fault at Forsmark Nuclear Power Plant caused one reactor to be shut down,
Fukushima Daiichi power plant (Japan): 11 March 2011
A powerful tsunami generated by a magnitude-9.0 earthquake out at sea slams into the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, damaging four of six reactors at the site. A series of fires are set off, after cooling systems fail. Venting hydrogen gas from the reactors causes explosions, forcing engineers to use seawater in an effort to cool overheating reactor cores. Originally classified as INES Level 5, the severity was raised to INES Level 7 on 12 April 2011 when a new estimate suggested higher levels of radiation than previously thought had leaked from the plant. Despite the classification, the incident is said to be much less severe than Chernobyl, and officials insist there is only a minimal risk to public health.
Marcoule nuclear site (France), 12 September 2011
One person is killed and four are injured - one with serious burns - after an explosion in a furnace used to melt down nuclear waste and recycle it for energy. No radiation leaks nor damage to the plant are detected,
even more, man made nuclear fuckery,
May 1945: Albert Stevens was one of several subjects of a human radiation experiment, and was injected with plutonium without his knowledge or informed consent. Although Stevens was the person who received the highest dose of radiation during the plutonium experiments, he was neither the first nor the last subject to be studied. Eighteen people aged 4 to 69 were injected with plutonium. Subjects who were chosen for the experiment had been diagnosed with a terminal disease. They lived from 6 days up to 44 years past the time of their injection, Eight of the 18 died within two years of the injection, All died from their preexisting terminal illness, or cardiac illnesses. None died from the plutonium itself. Patients from Rochester, Chicago, and Oak Ridge were also injected with plutonium in the Manhattan Project human experiments,
6–9 August 1945: On the orders of President Harry S. Truman, a uranium-gun design bomb, Little Boy, was used against the city of Hiroshima, Japan.

October 1965: US CIA-led expedition abandons a nuclear-powered telemetry relay listening device on Nanda Devi, leaving fissionable materials behind, to whoever finds it, (way to go cia, you morons)
January 17, 1966: the 1966 Palomares B-52 crash occurred when a B-52G bomber of the USAF collided with a KC-135 tanker during mid-air refuelling off the coast of Spain. The KC-135 was completely destroyed when its fuel load ignited, killing all four crew members. The B-52G broke apart, killing three of the seven crew members aboard, Of the four Mk28 type hydrogen bombs the B-52G carried, three were found on land near Almería, Spain. The non-nuclear explosives in two of the weapons detonated upon impact with the ground, resulting in the contamination of a 2-square-kilometre (490-acre) (0.78 square mile) area by radioactive plutonium, The fourth, which fell into the Mediterranean Sea, was recovered intact after a 2½-month-long search,
January 21, 1968: the 1968 Thule Air Base B-52 crash involved a United States Air Force (USAF) B-52 bomber. The aircraft was carrying four hydrogen bombs when a cabin fire forced the crew to abandon the aircraft. Six crew members ejected safely, but one who did not have an ejection seat was killed while trying to bail out. The bomber crashed onto sea ice in Greenland, causing the nuclear payload to rupture and disperse, which resulted in widespread radioactive contamination.
May 1968: Soviet submarine K-27 reactor near meltdown. 9 people died, 83 people were injured, In August 1968, the Project 667 A - Yankee class nuclear submarine K-140 was in the naval yard at Severodvinsk for repairs. On August 27, an uncontrolled increase of the reactor's power occurred following work to upgrade the vessel. One of the reactors started up automatically when the control rods were raised to a higher position. Power increased to 18 times its normal amount, while pressure and temperature levels in the reactor increased to four times the normal amount. The automatic start-up of the reactor was caused by the incorrect installation of the control rod electrical cables and by operator error. Radiation levels aboard the vessel deteriorated.
