Fukushima fuel pool is urgent national security issue for America, 'top threat facing humanity'


www.kurzweilai.net

..( Senator) Wyden said that the spent fuel is a national security threat to the U.S.: “The radiation caused by the failure of the spent fuel pools in the event of another earthquake could reach the West Coast within days. That absolutely makes the safe containment and protection of this spent fuel a security issue for the United States.”

Now this may be pertinent to the specialized forum we have on site... but the magnitude of the alarm apparently being raised seems to justify taking a brief 'Breaking" look at this topic... if only to review where we are today... a very uncomfortable place.


Points worth reviewing...


...If Fukushima Unit 4 falls, hazardous radioactive Cesium-137 release could be eight times worse than Chernobyl, warned Kevin Kamps, radioactive waste specialist at Beyond Nuclear.



Fuel pool number 4 is, indeed, the top short-term threat facing humanity, according to some experts.



“There’s more cesium in that [Unit 4] fuel pool than in all 800 nuclear bombs exploded above ground…But of course it would happen all at once. It would certainly destroy Japan as a functioning country...."



... Tepco’s current plans are to hold the majority of this spent fuel on-site for years in the same elevated, un-contained storage pools, only transferring some of the fuel into more secure, hardened dry casks when the common pool reaches capacity.



Why are American nuclear authorities ignoring this threat? “Nuclear waste experts … charge that the NRC is letting this threat [of the Fukushima fuel pools] fester because acknowledging it would call into question safety at dozens of identically designed nuclear power plants around the U.S., which contain exceedingly higher volumes of spent fuel in similar elevated pools outside of reinforced containment,” according to AlterNet, and American nuclear power plants are storing much more nuclear fuel rods in highly-vulnerable pools than even Fukushima.



The NRC and Japanese claim that fuel pool 4 has been stabilized, but nuclear experts ..... strongly disagreed with this assessment.



“It is true that in May and June the floor of the U4 SFP [spent fuel pool] was ‘reinforced,’ but not as strong as it was originally,” ..... “The entire building however has not been reinforced and is damaged by the explosion in both 4 and 3. So structurally U4 is not as strong as its original design required.”



Robert Alvarez, a nuclear expert and a former special assistant to the United States Secretary of Energy, said that even if the unit 4 structure has been tentatively stabilized, it doesn’t change the fact “it sits in a structurally damaged building, is about 100 feet above the ground and is exposed to the atmosphere, in a high-consequence earthquake zone.”



As The Nation pointed out, “Short of closing plants, there is a fairly reliable solution to the problem of spent fuel rods. It is called “dry cask storage.” But there is a problem with dry cask storage: it costs money….

“Experts say the only near-term answer to better protect our nation’s existing spent nuclear fuel is dry cask storage,” says AlterNet. “But there’s one catch: the nuclear industry doesn’t want to incur the expense, which is about $1 million per cask.”


Ultimately.. there you have it... it would cut into the billions of dollars of profit for the global energy cartel... so... we'll just have to risk it... after all TEPCO is a sovereign corporation....

Tepco and GE have been creating just this scenario all over the place..
the US has over Twenty reactors of the same or similar configuration.
Tepco runs reactors in the US...

if not this time ( though looks to me this time will do it)
then, the next time will do it

**Fukushima** is just one head of the nukular hydra.

ETA
if you were to ask the worlds richest people ( I use the term LOOSLY) to chip in to fix this before it is too late
would they?

Why are American nuclear authorities ignoring this threat?

The easy answer is cause they think they're above it. Nothing can destroy America! are you kidding me?


Fukushima is the one thing that I worry about. From all I've read and absorbed since the whole incident began, I agree it is the most imminent threat. For the sake of some, I hope it remains contained, but on the other hand..... once again, a legitimate concern goes widely unnoticed by the general masses (online/offline onats/offats).

Makes me half hope it all just blows up. Maybe THAT would wake some people up.

The precarious status of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear units and the risk presented by the enormous inventory of radioactive materials and spent fuel in the event of further earthquake threats should be of concern to all and a focus of greater international support and assistance.”


After Tour of Fukushima Nuclear Power Station, Wyden Says Situation Worse than Reported


I was asked to make a statement at the public hearing of the Budgetary Committee of the House of Councilors on March 23. I raised the crucial problem. of N0.4 reactor of Fukushima containing1535 fuel rods. It could be fatally damaged by continuing aftershocks. Moreover, 50 meters away from it exists a common cooling pool for 6 reactors containing 6375 fuel rods!

It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on NO.4 reactor.


Ambassador Murata writes to UN Secretary General: “It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on No. 4 reactor” — Appeals for independent assessment team

For anyone who has followed this from the beginning, the ongoing nightmare of Fukushima Daiichi is one of the most under-reported disasters in history yet it has the potential to have the most dramatic effects on our way of life.

Thinking that, even with the reinforced struts, the R$ SFP is as stable as it was prior to the accident is an exercise in idiocy. All one has to do is look at the state the building is in to realize that there isno way in Hades that the pool can be anywhere near structurally sound.

There has not yet been an afershock of M8+, and that is still entirely possible. Depending on where it struck, a quake need not even be that large to be able to damage the the SFP of R$ to such an extent that it would topple to the ground.

That beast truly needs to be tamed and it will require a concerted effort to make that happen. Our gonvernments (with a few exceptions within) nor the corporations who's profit is threatened will make the necessary decisions to make this happen.

They are not thinking they're above it. Japan doesnt get tornado's, and Fukushma has had some a couple days ago. Think about it.

A friend with inside knowledge, said this morning, he couldn't share specifics but not to give up hope, for no matter what the good guys will win. I immeditately brought up Fukushima and said even if there were white hats and dark hats amongst tptb, why is this one group allowed to attempt to murder the human race, to pull this kind of disaster off and the others silent? Why are not all the leaders of the countries supposedly trying to stop them revealing to all of earth, the buried technology since before WW2, the advanced cloning, the whole reason/agenda behind nuclear to harm humans and ionize the upper statosphere to fasciliate their master weapons, which are based on scalar technology? Why? If I was them I would have, and used the technology, demonstrated radiation being reversed, healings.

He said, because they are the most corrupt bought off scum.

China isn't on Japan's side either.

Then I asked WHY Japan's leaders didn't do the right thing?

If I was Japan's leaders, and do bear in mind this is a very wealthy nation, they had been bringing out some fairly old tech, ie. fuelless cars, were top robotics experts and even touchable holograms.

Now, if this was done to me, what I would have done is: REVEAL EVERYTHING. PULL OUT THE TECH, REVERSE THE RADIATION. USE THE ROBOTICS TO TACKLE ALL THE SPENT AND FULL FUEL RODS AND BURY THEM DEEP UNDERGROUND IN GRANITE LIKE THE NORWEGIANS DO, PLUS USE THE REVERSE SINE TECHNOLOGY AND FREQUENCY ON THE RADIATION TO NEUTRALIZE IT.

The Fission is another matter, cooling the cores and all that. There is most likely technology but I'd burrough undergound and boron and cement it though I believe it would be simply using some advanced buried tech.

WHY are they not doing the right thing?

They also must be co-operating with a huge depopulation event.

Its not a question of if it can happen, they're trying to make it happen. Those tornado's are pretty much end game if this works.

I have been wondering why Japan's handling of this has not been an outrage in America, now I understand, your thread explains everything. The Nuclear Industry is covering up it's own sins, at everyone's risk. Do they think they are immune? Does radiation only affect others? The stupidity of all this is overwhelming.

If the government ever releases the real news, the japanese and the world economy won't survive it
Im not talking about the economy we use..it IS slated for destruction

Im talking about the real one...
the one the PTB use...
IT won't survive the disclosure.

We don't need money. We never have. And zero of their sacrifices or offerings of souls are legite and ever are honored by our HIgher Selves or Family above. They don't work like that.

If disclosure is brought out they, the corrupt PTB will be kicked out and the police to arrest them, and all the bases ripped apart and all the technology used only for good.

We don't need money, never have, its slavery and scarsity. Everyone co-owns the earth and the resources.

The reason they don't is they are the most corrupt bought off groupees of the dark side that can be imagined because no one would do this.

No one would ever allow this group to operate. Period. They would all tell the truth.

Every single one of our leaders in every single country, is allowing this to happen willingly and bought off.

Furthermore I know why.

Its all their NWO, which doesnt mean, fascism. Its an ancient system of depopulation and cycles.

The astrology overhead. ie this year, actually from Sept 2011 to June 2012, is their long awaited sign of revelations 9/11, (elenin), Rosh Hoshana, blowing the horn for their "king" and yestrday, the allignment where El Nath, the galactic anti center star (or anti christ star to them) illuminated Venus (their lucifer symbol) and this will lead into configurations of stars and planets and pleiades later this month and lastly in June the Venus transit.

Now, all of this to them is the sign for the harvest. This is a group that really resents humans. They use us as cattle, see as as slaves, and are threatened by us if we wake up, so in every cycle they depopulate, re-educate, take away learning/replace paradigms, and for every astrolgoical (12 signs) house, that the sun passes through, they have their own new religion(s), sun god. The age of pisces is ending.

So, depopulation is being done by radiation, and they all seem quite content to let it happen.

Are we?

The second sun/son? This could be a person's chart even, but, there is a kind of suspicion I have that its nuclear fission.

Their atom radiation technology is Mr Satan to them, the opposite of the sun, well anyway. Its certainly one of my theories and even what I think nibiru is all about.

well
from chernoble:
You can't change the situation, it is what it is

you need chaga mushrooms which grows on birch trees
and glutathion Your body anufactures this from from whey protein or rawish beef
and siberian ginsang, ( and related: maybe virginnia creeper root, wild sarsaparilla root, etc)

all of which we have here in Ontario
growing wild ( well except the beef, which grows tame )

I just read there is another, much larger, SFP right next to reactor 4. I am unclear as to what condition this pool is in, and if it looses water, what happens to it? With 3x more SF then the cliff hanger in reactor 4, isn't is possible that when, not if, but when, reactor 4 goes down that this other pool will go with it? Some 8k tons of this %$#@ tossed into the sea and air with no way to stop it? Clearly if 4 goes down, no human is going near this thing in forever, so the time for humans to fix the issue is running out.

As for the conspiracy part, I have stated before I expect the fate of reactor 4's pool of death will be either determined during the Olympics and will be part of the ceremony or its fate will be shown, via imagery, present in the Olympics; this July sequence being the most important sequence to date and the Olympics will be the world's stage as it will be the moment in which the planetary focus will be on the stage - the largest focus since the MJ funeral which was another transition point. This means, a little over two months of fun...

Do they guard this area pretty tightly? I wonder what would happen if someone were to attack the area with explosives, trying to purposely release the cesium pools and waste.

You know nothing about Japanese culture apparently. These are the same people who wrote "code of the samurai" Have you read it? It's all about honor to these people, no one wants to make a fool of themselves and have a mass exodus, reason behind, dozens of countries have palced money into the japan and are making money off of them, if they leave, the economy, world economy is screwed

I imagine that they would not. They would use their money to escape to safety and ensure their own survival.

We need bio robots, thousands of them.

If the Japanese can sacrifice men and material to bomb US ships in the 40's, they can sacrifice men and materials to save planet earth.

we need all the nations of the world to come together with their best and brightest and build a containment vessel for the waste. We need to either send it into the sun or out into space and swear never to need to do it again.

Anti-nuclear physician Dr. Helen Caldicott says that if fuel pool 4 collapses, she will evacuate her family from Boston and move them to the Southern Hemisphere. This is an especially dramatic statement given that the West Coast is much more directly in the path of Fukushima radiation than the East Coast.

Overcoming the Japan Radiation Propaganda 'Tsunami' Is An Uphill Battle

I posted many articles from March 12, 2011 onwards, and did many radio shows in 2011, that addressed the subject of the Fukushima radiation scare psyops. The Illuminated Ones want to create fear about nuclear energy and get the public to demand the shutdown of nuclear plants and replace them with natural gas power plants using a new German Turbine design (you see why Merkle in Germany banned nuclear plants and will phase out all current nuke plants). You notice how this campaign dovetails with the fracking natural gas activity here in America and the development of a natural gas pipe lines from Russia into Turkey, Afghanistan, etc. There was no meltdown in Fukushima. See the articles I posted in March 2011. The whole scenario was staged. The first comment posted at the end of the Sircus promo piece tells the story.
