An animation by Steve Cutts:
According to the press release of the IPPNW yesterday (German only) there is an imminent risk of failure of the nuclear power plan in Gundremmingen.
Cite (translated): “The turbine condenser can fail at any time and with alarmingly high probability. The result would be a sudden surge in the reactor exceeding the so-called design pressure very far.”
Hmm… Gundremmingen is just 54 km away from the place where I live…
“Nuclear power plants in Germany are secure”… block B of the nuclear power plant Gundremmingen was turned off two days ago, because radio active cooling water emerged:
Hmm… Gundremmingen is 50 km away from the place where I live…

A super typhoon aims at Japan, see http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/super-typhoon-sets-aim-at-japa/66638.
The science ministry of Japan says: 8 percent (or about 30000 square kilometers) of the japanese landmass have been contaminated as consequence of the nuclear meltdown of Fukushima.
From the 750-page report of the Japanese government it falls into place, that Fukushima is in fact comparable to Chernobyl and it will probably take several decades to get rid of the outcome.
In Okuma, about 1.7 km away from Fukushima 1, plutonium was found, which is assumed to be from Fukushima 1.
In Fukushima 1 steam comes out with a radiation of 3000-4000 mSv per hour. To get a picture, how high this is: The non-hazardous dosage is considered to be 0.0001 mSv per hour pro and at 150 mSv symptoms of radiation syndrome will occur.
Tepco meanwhile admitted, that in two other reactors a substantial damage of the cores has taken place – factual a core meltdown.
