[ RadSafe ] Latest Anti-Nuclear Power Campaigner Spin on TEPCO Video

After asking some people with experience of pools for storage of spent
nuclear fuel (both short-term and long-term storage) it is clear that
SimplyInfo is probably speculating quite extensively based on what they
see in the Tepco videos.
After several years in water that is not up to regular standards for
storage pools, there can be a number of inorganic chemical interactions
going on that would explain what is observed, such phenomena are
observed also in storage pools in normal operation. Added to that there
could be some biological processes, though the inorganic chemistry is
probably enough.

Best wishes,
