14,000 Hiroshima Bombs Pointed At The Pacific

A black and white radioactive sign.

The radiation threat at Fukushima in November will be at catastrophic levels.

This is what is happening at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear reactor in November. The fuel removal from Reactor 4 will match the fallout of 14,000 Hiroshima bombs if something goes wrong.

I am not a gloom-and-doomer, but I am a realist, and the chances are high that the removal of over 1300 spent fuel rods from a malfunctioning fuel storage tank could go wrong.

These fuel rods hold enough radiation  to equal 14,000 nuclear bombs. If another accident occurs, radiation will spill into the Pacific Ocean, evaporate into the atmosphere, and will circulate all over the Northern Hemisphere – for decades.

The bring-down of the fuel rods from Fukushima Reactor 4 is the most dangerous engineering task ever undertaken in human history.

Two Weeks From Now

The damaged Fukushima nuclear reactor.

Reactor 4 at the Fukushima nuclear reactor is tipping and sinking into the ground.

As early as November 8, 2013 – the operation is due to begin. Reactor 4 is tipping and sinking, and will not withstand another large earthquake or tsunami like the 9.0 magnitude quake and tsunami that destroyed the nuclear power plant in 2011.

This operation is dangerous enough on its own, but what happens if another earthquake occurs, followed by a tsunami of any size, or if a typhoon smacks into the Japanese coastline?

Recent Earthquakes

On Friday, October 25, 2013, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake occurred about 200 miles east of Honshu, Japan, the location of the Fukushima nuclear reactor. A small tsunami watch was issued, but waves merely rose about 3 feet. The 7.5 quake was downgraded to a 7.1.

After the 7.5 magnitude quake (7.1 really??), this area has experienced the following earthquakes:

  1. 5.1  Honshu 10/25/13
  2. 4.8  Honshu 10/25/13
  3. 5.5  Honshu 10/25/13
  4. 4.9  Honshu 10/25/13
  5. 4.6  Honshu 10/25/13
  6. 4.7  Honshu 10/26/13
  7. 4.4  Ishinomaki, Japan 10/26/13 (about 40 mi from Fukushima)
  8. 5.5  Honshu 10/27/13
  9. 5.0  Honshu 10/27/13

Deadly Typhoon Wipha was a once in a decade storm.

Typhoons

Typhoon Wipha hammered Japan in early October, followed by Typhoon Francisco that passed close to the island on Saturday.

It is expected to take over one year to remove the spent fuel rods from Reactor 4 – I suspect the threat of another typhoon will be knocking on Japan’s door sometime between now and then.

This human disaster could result in massive destruction for all life on our planet if another natural disaster occurs at Honshu.

Sadly, all any of us can do is just wait and see …

 

 

What’s Really Going On At Fukushima? The Minute-By-Minute Reality

Red questions marks.

No one really knows what’s going on at Fukushima because we are not being told the entire truth.

There’s a lot of information circulating about what’s happening at Fukushima, and if a world-wide disaster is right around the corner.

One of the saddest aspects of this disaster is the fact that many people (I don’t want to admit that MOST people) do not even know what Fukushima is.

Is it because we are not being told the entire truth to avoid mass panic, or is it because too many people are THAT out of touch?

Today’s Reality

The radiation leaks from the March 11, 2011 disaster have not been stopped. After 30 months, a disastrous chain-of-manmade-events has brought us to this reality:

Human beings are not able to stop the chronic radioactive water leaking into the Pacific Ocean.

Today, Unit 4 contains 10 times more Cesium-137 than Chernobyl’s meltdown in 1986. It is time to prepare for a total withdrawal from the site, which means that this disaster must be recognized as a catastrophe of planetary proportion created by mankind.

The two-and-a-half year struggle to fix this devastating error has clearly proven that nuclear accidents cannot be coped with by electric companies, governments  or any human.

Shall we say, despite the decades of conservative warningswe have messed our own nest, and have created our own suffering at the hands of a few?

Get The Facts Straight

Let’s rewind the tapes and start from the beginning. Look at the facts, simplify the chain of events (that means taking out the editorials, media drama, and the politics), and then you decide what to do about the possibilites of a historic and massive disaster affecting our planet – and you.

What’s Fukushima?

A Wikimap of the Fukushima Prefecture in Japan.

The Fukushima Prefecture in Japan – Wikimaps

The Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant is a nuclear power plant located on a 150 ha (370-acre) site in the Fukushima Prefecture in the Tōhoku region on the island of Honshu. The capital city is Fukushima.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) runs the plant. The plant is comprised of six separate boiling water reactors originally designed by General Electric (GE) and maintained by TEPCO.

At the time of the March 11, 2011 earthquake, reactor 4 had been de-fueled, and reactors 5 and 6 were in cold shutdown for a planned maintenance.

Immediately after the earthquake, government regulations shut down the remaining reactors 1–3.  Their sustained fission reactions automatically quit, inserting control rods in what is termed the SCRAM emergency event.

Then, emergency generators came online to power electronics and coolant systems, which operated up to when the tsunami hit. After the tsunami, the four reactors at Fukushima II automatically shut down.

The Natural Disaster

The words Japan with a red moon behind the letters.

On March 11, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit directly under Japan, creating a deadly tsunami.

A 9.0 magnitude earthquake, the fifth largest quake to strike the Earth since 1900, spilt the Pacific Rim’s Ring of Fire at the subduction zone directly under Japan. This was the most powerful earthquake to hit Japan in 1,200 recorded years.

The quake lifted, and then dropped, a slab of seafloor 50 miles wide and more than 180 miles long. The force shifted the seafloor nearly 80 feet westward above the quake epicenter.

The size and location of the rupture created a tsunami with the speed of 800 kilometers per hour (approximately 500 mph), which is the approximate cruising speed of a jumbo jet.

A tidal wave.

Tsunami waves as high as 100 feet slammed onto Japans’s eastern coast.

Tsunami waves grew to 100 feet high, breaking historic records as they broke onshore following the quake. The massive tsunami washed over embankments, buried coastal communities, knocked down power lines, and swept cars, homes and massive islands of debris out to sea.

The Human Disaster

For whatever reason, the Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant was constructed on top of one of the most dangerous earthquake zones on Earth – the Pacific Rim’s Ring of Fire.

Tsunami waves 9 meters high (30 ft) struck the No. 2 plant, while the No. 1 plant was hit by a 13 meter (42 ft) tsunami wave. The tsunami caused the No. 2 plant’s seawater pumps, used to cool the reactors, to fail.

Of the plant’s four reactors, three were in danger of meltdown. One external high-voltage power line still functioned, allowing plant staff in the central control room to monitor the internal reactor temperatures and water levels. The employees at the No. 2 plant worked to stabilize the reactors.

According to the head of the plant, the plant was near meltdown. It still is today.

Take the time to reflect on the workers at Fukushima today – they are risking their lives to try to stop this massive disaster from manifesting.

Debate And Denial

A green dollar sign with a leaf on its top.

It is time to take the world’s energy out of the hands-for-profit.

The World Nuclear Report in 2013 declared that Fukushima has the potential to cause “by far the most serious radiological disaster to date” if it goes wrong. It warns of the possibility of apocalyptic scenarios, including the evacuation of 10 million people in the surrounding area and in Tokyo.

Over 400 tons of irradiated spent fuel from reactor 4 must be removed in case of another earthquake because the structure is now highly unstable.

There are so many risks and unknowns.  Too much time is being spent debating future meltdowns. Too little time is being shared with the world exposing the truth about the possibilites.

No matter the outcome, everyone has every right to know what to prepare for. It is time to construct safe, alternative energy, and take nuclear power profits out of the hands of the few.

No More Time

There is no more time to play around with this situation. As Japan struggles minute-by-minute to avoid a global disaster, each and every one of us should be working equally as hard to steer mankind’s future away from energy-for-profit and elitist control.

We must take back a future of free-energy that is controlled by one thing, and one thing only  – Nature.

When’s Enough, ENOUGH?

A dead elk with huge horns.

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is puzzled over the mysterious deaths of more than 100 elk within a 24-hour period in rural New Mexico.

Shame, shame, shame on us. Human beings are polluting our environment to the point of causing disease and death to not only our own species, but to the plants and animals in which we share our environment.

Thoughtless Humans

Basically, the human animal can be very dirty, and we pollute where we live with waste and trash, GMOs, power plants, and processed chemicals. We destroy the natural environment to serve are gluttonous needs, and we dispose of our wastes in ways that destroy other life-forms.

The biggest tragedy of all is that we don’t want to admit that it is our fault that the Earth is dying – we choose to remain ignorant to avoid accountability.

Enough is enough.

Our Damaging Line-Up

Here is just a handful of species that are suffering and dying at the hands of human wars, overcrowding, pollution, oil pipelines, GMOs, Chemtrails, energy power plants, and waste disposal:
