Oh Gee Mat, with Hanford advising them they can't miss finishing us of, eh?
Let me start by saying this article sucks! The link to Ashi sucks even more. Reading it was like chewing on wet laundry. What is here that is worthy
of attention is the 3 stage comment by one of the ENE regulars named Cisco.
People who are out of the loop would probably call his comment "Alarmist"
I would disagree. I find it refreshingly blunt and to the point without all the tap dancing fluff and spin.... Here is Cisco.
"When the SFP at #4 reactor is breached and the resulting radioactive firestorm ensues, half of the Island of Honshu will have to be evacuated.
Thousands in Japan will die within days, weeks and months from radiation poisoning. It will be a global catastrophe of epic proportions, contaminating
the northern hemisphere, resulting in tens of millions of deaths. No country will be spared. Following the jet stream blowing east, the US and
Canadian coasts will be the most hard hit/contaminated. The entire US and Canada will not be spared.
There are reports that the Japanese government has been in talks with China and Russia discussing the potential of evacuating 40 million people, and
the associated logistics. Some predict this event will collapse the economy of Japan, and destroy the fortunes of many of its trading partners.
Your chance of being irradiated from Fukushima (past, present, future) is extremely high/likely. And, as each day ticks bye, we get closer to a
radiological firestorm that will make Chernobyl look pale as to what is unfolding. Those of us, who will not be exposed to radionuclides, will be the
You will inhale it, eat it, or have skin exposure. And, it will metastasize into a cancer sometime in your life. Your DNA will be corrupted; and, if
you procreate, you will pass your damaged genes on to the next generation, and each generation thereafter.
Radiation levels in the western US and Canada will be extreme as to cause some radiation poisoning in small segments of the population resulting in
premature biological extinctions. Food stuffs grown and produced in California and other western states will be too contaminated to pick, and/or
consume. All products from Japan should be suspect as to their potential, to be radioactive.
Adding more radiation to the atmosphere and the ocean, Japan is incinerating millions of tons of radioactive debris, and then dumping the ash in Tokyo
Bay. Incineration doesn’t remove radiation; this process off gases radionuclides into the air, and the other radionuclides are concentrated in the
ash. Incineration of radioactive debris only serves as a volume reducer. There is no method to remediate radioactive isotopes except to remove them
TEPCO has admitted to dumping 1000 tons a day of radioactive water…(240,000/GPD or close to 1,000,000 million gallons every 4 days). Historically,
TEPCO has fudged and misrepresented its actual discharge rates.
Many experts believe these numbers have been significantly understated. The radioactive sea plume has reached Hawaii and should reach the US in less
than 6 months. Sea water evaporates, clouds form that produce rain, adding another level of contamination to the atmosphere and land.
Additionally, some approximately 50,000,000 tons of construction and industrial debris is headed our way, expected to hit the US and Canadian coasts
in the next 6 months. Some of it is dangerously radioactive.
This will be the beginning of the end for millions of people, and a mass corruption of the *gene pool for man and all other living creatures and
plants. This will be the end of nuclear power; but, it will be the end of many of us, too.
It’s not a question of if; it’s just a matter of when. "
If you think those who created this nuclear power electricity scheme will be able to contain Fukushima; think again. The same folks who got us into
this mess, are the ones charged with fixing it…WTF? Remember the Deepwater Horizon and how the offender BP was left to be the fixer…insanity.
