This statement by the Japanese "Company Official" is a complete misrepresentation of the facts. The fire is a clear indicator of a major nuclear event. If you understand how heavy water controls the reaction rate of fission, you would agree...

There is a major liability of this company and the Japanese government for what occurred today. This is an outrage...

For those of you that speak Wikipedian, look at the history log of Nuclear Power.

Ultramarine just made an interesting edit:

This is what you would call, a coverup...

I think Ultramarine should stand down...

"Heavy isotopes of chemical elements have very slightly different chemical behaviors, but for most elements the differences in chemical behavior between isotopes are far too small to use, or even detect. For hydrogen, however, this is not true. The larger chemical isotope-effects seen with deuterium and tritium manifest because bond energies in chemistry are determined in quantum mechanics by equations in which the quantity of reduced mass of the nucleus and electrons appears. This quantity is altered in heavy-hydrogen compounds (of which deuterium oxide is the most common and familiar) far more greatly than for heavy-isotope substitution in other chemical elements. This isotope effect of heavy hydrogen is magnified further in biological systems, which are very sensitive to small changes in the solvent properties of water."

See the Wikpedia artilcle for details:

The Washington Post reports that the water "may have had a little radiation".

Hey folks, Heavy water may contain as much as 100% D2O,

The Heavy Water is where the fission takes place. The water slows down the neurtons as a way from keeping this fission reaction from going into a positive feedback loop. Well if the heavy water was in the ocean, what was keeping the fission reaction from going in a positive feedback loop?

The liabilities for this accident are significant...
