ALERT! La Salle Nuclear Plant Nearly Took Out Chicago!

Pissin’ On The Roses, FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013

Chicago almost became a glowing radioactive sister city to Fukushima.

Yesterday we broke the story  of  the La Salle Nuclear plant having to perform a Fukushima style direct-to-atmosphere venting of the primary nuclear containment  due to a lightening strike. As we indicated at the time, the amount of radioactivity released is unknown because the radiation monitors were not on a backup power supply.

Today in a follow on NRC event report, we find out that failures in the emergency cooling system resulted in the last ditch cooling attempt of directly venting the radioactive drywell to the atmosphere. The severity of those failures are underreported in the NRC event report, because it reads no different than if it the failures had been discovered during testing instead of being found out in the midst of a real life emergency resulting in the last ditch cooling effort of venting.

We explain the situation in more detail in the video, but gist of the analysis is as follows.

  1. Lightning took out power to both reactors.
  2. Backup generators kicked on, but powering everything would overload them
  3. The systems which measure how much radiation is being vented from the plant did not have power.
  4. The reactors lost cooling capability.
  5. Automatic emergency cooling kicked in.
  6. The automated emergency cooling on Unit 2 was failing.
  7. As a last ditch effort, Unit 2 primary containment was vented to the atmosphere.
  8. The venting cooled and dropped the pressure in Unit 2 enough to compensate for the failing cooling.
  9. The camel was down to its last failing straw and only fractured its back; had it broken, Chicago would be aglow.
  10. Radioactive contamination did occur.

    1. Smart thinking, #1. reported “LaSalle News Tribune: Exelon Generation’s La Salle County Generating System declared an Unusual Event at 3:11 pm.”

    1. Nope, can’t agree with that sentiment as most are just vaccine toxified, fluoridated, dumbed down, TV alpha-waved and programmed, financial-slave ignorant sheeples with cell phone microwave cooked brains who have nothing to do with the treason against our country or the crime syndicates running our nation into the ground.

      I would agree that cleaning out all the human-appearing rats from their Chicago nests and roasting them on a spit at a party lakeside, then shooting off some fireworks to celebrate their demise while sipping on a brew would make a good Saturday night.

  1. Mossad indeed.
    They’re busy with plan B now that
    taking away the guns didn’t go as planned.

    Be vigilant mossad never sleeps.


  2. Let’s see…. “Back up generators kicked on”, but “the systems which measure how much radiation is being vented from the plant did not have power.”

    A radiation tester can be powered with D-cell batteries. They cranked up generators and didn’t have enough juice to know how much radiation they were spewing into the atmosphere? Sounds like BS to me.
