Actually I was more commenting to the way you said it. I think you could have said it better. Anyways sorry if it sounded 'rude' I've just been watching this tread for the get go. A lot of terrible video, my thoughts go out to everyone helping out over there.

Good summary of the recent events from Reuters:



Some developments following the major earthquake that struck northeast Japan:
- More than 1,800 people likely dead or missing from the quake and tsunami, Kyodo news agency says.
- Kyodo reports 10,000 people in one town unreachable.
* Radiation leaks from a damaged nuclear plant and explosion blows off the roof, but authorities say radiation levels now lessening.
* Around 110,000 evacuated from 20 km (12 mile) radius around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, another 30,000 from 10 km (6 mile) radius around nearby Fukushima Daini plant.
* Up to 160 people may have been exposed to radiation, nuclear safety agency says.

the guy from the geological survey on fox said what caused that big quake was caused millions of years ago from built up tension by a
tectonic plate diving beneath another and was released with the recent
9.1 in japan so i don't think the sun is making these happen

Yeah, called this one...really wish i was wrong

from the source:




However, the earthquake in Japan, in addition to damaging the ability of the control rods to regulate the fuel — and the reactor’s coolant system — appears to have damaged the containment facility, and the explosion almost certainly did.

I see what you're saying but I wasn't thinking of far off in the pacific, as can be seen
from the link below,

USGS shaking intensity

the ground movement tapers off fairly quickly with distance
from the epicentre, if it were at about 300-400 km off the coast there would be
almost no noticeable shaking (using the scale and intensity legend) also it
would be deep enough for the tsunami to travel at around the speed of
300-500 km/h, giving them roughly an hour to prepare (Wake everyone up somehow)

Tsunami speeds and simulation

If not for extremely loud sirens, how would people along a 500km coastline be alerted.

Also not how eerily similar the simulation is on the link, to what actually happened on friday.
(note that it is a simulation of a theoretical earthquake in the pacific (not 2004))

from the meltdown link



And so now the question is simple: Did the floor of the containment vessel crack? If not, the situation can still be salvaged by somehow re-containing the nuclear core. But if the floor has cracked, it is highly likely that the melting fuel will burn through the floor of the containment system and enter the ground. This has never happened before but has always been the nightmare scenario for a nuclear power event —

Are you seriously trying to say that this was a planned event? I don't believe it was HAARP at all.


Finally someone making some sen...


I think it was the solar flares and storms.

Reports indicate that up to 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) of the reactor fuel was exposed. The reactor fuel appears to have at least partially melted, and the subsequent explosion has shattered the walls and roof of the containment vessel — and likely the remaining useful parts of the control and coolant systems.

If this is true then all recent cracks in earths crust are normal.The sun can release energy that forms a backflow plasma rebound from the magnetosphere flow and physicists have noted on these rebound occasions ,earthquakes occur,its not implausable,you will note on observations on the darkside of earth increase electroflux precedes events.NOAA predicted on that info.
Just a update for all the geoaffective affects are not over according to NOAA for 12-13 th
source

Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be unsettled to active for the next three days (11-13 March) with a slight chance for minor to major storm conditions, particularly at high latitudes. Effects from the 07 March CME will slowly subside during day one (11 March), but the arrival of a coronal hole high speed stream is expected to become geoeffective late on day two (12 March) through day three (13 March).

This has now been downgraded.source update

Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to active for the next three days under the continued effects of the coronal hole high speed stream. There is a slight chance for minor storm conditions at high latitudes.

6.3 just in. Offshore Fukushima again. I was saying just before it's been a while (over 9hrs) since the last.

that is just what the guy from the geo survey says i dont really believe
that this recent quake was caused from something that happend millions of years ago

its the #3



Japan's nuclear safety agency says Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant No. 3 reactor's emergency cooling system not functioning


by my count that actually makes three...

Stratfor and other intelligence sources have nothing yet..Japanese government not being very forthcoming.
