Fukushima reactor No. 4 vulnerable to catastrophic collapse; Human civilization on the brink
31 replies, posted
[QUOTE]The news you are about to read puts everything else in the category of “insignificant” by comparison. Concerned about the 2012 U.S. presidential election? Worried about GMOs? Fluoride? Vaccines? Secret prisons? None of that even matters if we don’t solve the problem of Fukushima reactor No. 4, which is on the verge of a catastrophic failure that could unleash enough radiation to end human civilization on our planet.
The resulting releasing of radiation would turn North America into a “dead zone” for humans… mutated crops, radioactive groundwater, skyrocketing infant mortality, an explosion in cancer and infertility… this is what could be unleashed at any moment from an earthquake in Japan. Such an event could result in the release of 85 times the Cesium-137 released by the Chernobyl catastrophe, say experts. And the Chernobyl catastrophe made its surrounding regions uninhabitable by humans for centuries.
Yet, astonishingly, the usual suspects of deception are saying absolutely nothing about this problem. The mainstream media pretends there’s no problem with Fukushima. President Obama says nothing about it. Federal regulators, including the NRC, are all but silent. It’s as if they think their silence on the issue somehow makes it go away.
Perhaps these professional liars in the media and government have become so used to idea that they can simply spin their own reality that they now believe they can ignore the laws of physics. That’s why they have refused to cover the low-level radiation plume that continues to be emitted from Fukushima.
The fate of the world now rests on reactor No. 4
“It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on No.4 reactor.” – Mitsuhei Murata, Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland and Senegal, Executive Director, the Japan Society for Global System and Ethics
Mr. Murata’s stunning statement should be front-page news everywhere around the world. Why? Becausehe’s right. If reactor No. 4 suffers even a minor earthquake, it could set off a chain reaction of events that quickly lead to North America becoming uninhabitable by humans for centuries to come. Imagine California, Oregon and Washington statesbeing inundated with radiation — up to 85 times the radiation release from Chernobyl. We’re talking about the end of human life on the scale of continents.
Here’s how this could happen, according to Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy:
“The No. 4 pool is about 100 feet above ground, is structurally damaged and is exposed to the open elements. If an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 released by the Chernobyl accident. The infrastructure to safely remove this material was destroyed as it was at the other three reactors. Spent reactor fuel cannot be simply lifted into the air by a crane as if it were routine cargo. In order to prevent severe radiation exposures, fires and possible explosions, it must be transferred at all times in water and heavily shielded structures into dry casks. As this has never been done before, the removal of the spent fuel from the pools at the damaged Fukushima-Dai-Ichi reactors will require a major and time-consuming re-construction effort and will be charting in unknown waters.”([url]http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/forum/218/nuclear-expert-fukushima-spent-…[/url])
Note: He says “10 times” the Cesium-137 of Chernobyl. Others say up to 85 times. Nobody is 100% certain of what would actually occur because this has never happened before. We are inuncharted territoryas a civilization, facing a unique and imminent threat to our continued survival. And both governments and the corporations that assured us nuclear power was safe are playing their “cover my ass” games while the world waits in the crosshairs of a nuclear apocalypse.[/QUOTE]
Well, luckily Japan isn't known as a very earthquake-prone country, so this is quite unlikely to happen, right..? RIGHT...!?
lol, sure ok
Boy howdy the first few sentences screamed "sensationalist" pretty damn loudly.
Why does that site scream conspiracy theorist

haha oh wow
what the fuck kind of fear-mongering bullshit is this
I always fail to give a damn for things like this.
Why is the universe so hellbent on convincing us the world will indeed end in 2012?
EDIT: To all the people being so lax, this is indeed a problem. They are sensationalizing it, but there is a serious risk of a massive radiation leak that WILL endanger most of the world around Fukushima.
Can you provide a source that doesn't read like something from the Earth Liberation Front?
God damnit guys really? I know it's sensationalist headlines but don't we have at least some standards here?

The universe is hellbent on ending us every year, not just 2012.
I have read an article in a newspaper in Belgium, but I doubt you guys can read Dutch.
One nuclear powerplant to end human civilization?
God forbid what [B]2[/B] could do!!
Get out of here, stalker.
"naturalnews.com" says it all really.
[URL="http://www.naturalnews.com/035796_vaccine_injuries_homeopathy_healing.html"]I wouldn't trust a site that says vaccines are dangerous.[/URL]
Or one that even so much as gives homeopathy slight credit.
Holy shit this is so sensationalist it just...wow.
It fucking blows my mind.
Oh and we all remember the recent extinction of mankind when the Chernobyl disaster happened.

Yea, being dead is boring.
Life must be tough for a conspiracy theorist. Imagine spending all those nights awake worrying about being killed by the government / the extinction of man-kind / 2012 e.t.c.
For fucks sake. As soon as I saw 'naturalnews' I almost flew in to a white uncontrollable rage. Even conspiracy theorists say 'chill out man' to naturalnews. Anybody that uses naturalnews as a source should get a permanent ban.
Haha, what? Jesus this seems like it was just written with the general idea of "IF THIS HAPPENS EVERYTHING EVER WILL DIE.".
i cant even take anti-nuclear proponents seriously
they are seriously worse than 9/11 conspiracy theorists and moon landing deniers

Back the fuck up for a second
Smells like bullshit news.

not everyone will die, but everything in a 100-150 mile radius will probably become inhabitable so it's still pretty terrible

Man the world already ended with Chernobyl.
Get with the fucking times, hippies.
I mean, it would suck, and people would die, but it would probably "just" be another Chernobyl repeat at the worst.
Why is it so hard to raise rods of nuclear fuel out of water?
