  •  so the current headline means nothing? (0+ / 0-)
    3/21 - There were steam releases at reactors #2 and #3 in the afternoon. All 700 workers were evacuated and the work to restore the engines, pumps and electrical power to the plant has been suspended until further notice. Radiation spiked one kilometer west of the facility, rising from 494 microsieverts at 5:40 p.m. to 1,932 at 6:30 p.m. The level dropped to 442 at 8:30 p.m. - WaPo
    My basis for certainty is the fact that there are still workers at the site

    Um?  And you stated in no uncertain terms there was
    no doubts about the Reactor integrity, which the JAIF
    was disputing you.  Sorry, When the JAIF says one thing
    and KBMAN states in absolutes something else, someone is
    lying about the JAIF.

    •  This is not the first steam release (0+ / 0-)

      nor is it the first time that workers were evacuated from the site.  If the radiation levels had risen and then plateaued your suppositions would have merit.  They did not, they spiked and returned to a level below where they were prior to the release.  This is the same pattern we have seen for the past week or so.  I would suspect they have crews back in place by now, given that the radiation levels have dropped again.  It's just not as newsworthy as story as when they left.

      And again, your interpretation of that yellow box does not equal what JAIF says.  With no context you have no real understanding of what they mean.  Provide their criteria for making that determination and then we can discuss the facts.  I have repeatedly challenged you to provide this and yet nothing has been forthcoming, just more assumptions that you have an accurate interpretation.  That and more accusations and insults.  Meanwhile your tag team partner Jake has been arguing that you didn't mean what you mean, but he still agrees with you 100%.

        So, you have an exclusive pipeline into the mysterious meaning of the document? Oh, and by the way, when it comes to factual errors, you've made your share here.

        Speaking of baseless suppositions and personal attacks ...

        you work from the Original Kanji script...)

        And I can demand the same from you.
        What is the IAEA basis for making any determinations?
