Do you recall the PSR hysteria about the unloading of SNF from Fukushima Dai'ichi Unit 4, and how it was a deadly threat to all life on earth, the "most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis
"? (Older post
, later update
Well, I must announce that Wasserman's worst nightmare must have come true. TEPCO announced that all spent fuel has been removed from the Unit 4 fuel pool
, leaving only 180 unused fuel elements (unused fuel is safe to handle by hand). Since we were told that it was impossible to handle this job safely yet we heard nothing of this, it stands to reason that it killed us all in our sleep, and we are in some dreary Hadean afterlife in which we continue to go through the motions of existence without any knowledge of what happened to us.
be some dreadful thing like this, because Harvey Wasserman, PSR, UCS, etc. could not possibly have been wrong. Could they?
