Why don't they just entomb the damn things? Why...?
These events are being orchestrated by a black hand.

No wonder Michio Kaku is now calling for boron-based entombment.
If you believe the lie then it is, and will be YOUR FAULT when you come down with cancer in 20 years.

What do you know? Uhhh, more than the Japanese and American governments and all their "experts?"
I've been telling my mother the same thing.
At first she said, "you're not a nuclear scientist."
I replied, "you should feel lucky I'm not or you'd never hear the truth!"
As for Michio Kaku, he was the media "expert" who claimed that obvious missile launch off the coast of LA a few months ago was really a plane contrail. And he sounded like a total idiot on Coast To Coast with his inane pie-in-the-sky future predictions.

Wed better educate ourselves in the ways of reading the doses we may be getting i suppose.
There are these thiings called dosimeters...they wear them on their clothes and it will tell when youve had enough.....
perhaps these would be xxheaper to distibute to the people and would set many peoples minds at rest.
Im sure thinkiing of picking one up if possible.
The idea of finding a geiger counter for sale will be laughable in a week at this rate.
There is NO doubt that Japan has dropped the ball on this one, and the consequences may be bigger than we yet know.
Where is all this stockpile of MOX?not at Fukijima is assume.....
How about the Onagawa reactor that was hopeless last i heard?

There were 6 hundred thousand ( if I am not mistaken) spent rods stored on the roof that went boomb
and blew 2 thirds of a mile staright up...just one thing
This radiation will add to the accumulating contamination in the world and will eventually start to show up statistically every where.
in the migrating contaminated animals and in the dust that blows from continant to continant
A froggy in a pot type scene slowly coming to a glowing boil
Before nuclear technology cancer was basically unheard of the canadian government forcast that half the population coming down with a disease caused and cured by radiation...
Though 90 some odd percent of Doctors won't take it to save thier lives
Anne Coulter says radiation is good for you
And she would noe
Every person radiation kills is one person less between here and the Miss universe title she covets so much but can only win when the field is thinned out a bit more

This still has a long way to go to reach Chernobyl, When it fully melts down, explodes in every direction sending pieces of the core in all directions, increases it's radioactive levels that are spreading by 1000 times like the carbon at Chernobyl did then we can compare it.
The only thing so far that comes close is probly the spent fuel rods, which was really just stupid to keep on site IMHO
This situation is bad, REEEAAAAAALLLLY BAAAAAAAAAD.
But you really should look at Chernobyl more before you compare them.
And actually compare them, not just say how bad this is, actually compare the two.
Figures provided by the Tokyo Electric Power Company on Thursday show that most of the dangerous uranium at the powerplant is in the spent fuel rods, not the reactor cores.
The company said that a total of 11,195 spent fuel rod assemblies were stored at the site. That is about four times as much radioactive material as in the reactor cores combined…….the zirconium cladding on the fuel rods could burst into flames if exposed to air for hours when a storage pool lost its water
Spent rods the biggest hazard, Sydney Morning Herald, Keith Bradsher and Hiroko Tabuchi, March 19, 2011 YEARS of procrastination in deciding on long-term disposal of highly radioactive fuel rods from nuclear reactors are coming back to haunt Japanese authorities as they try to control fires and explosions at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station.
