Pump and pray: Tepco might have to pour water on Fukushima wreckage forever By Professor Christopher Busby

8 August 2013 — Russia Today

‘Anyone living within 1km of the coast near to at least 200km north or south of Fukushima should get out. It is not eating the fish and shellfish that gets you – it’s breathing.’

Fukushima is a nightmare disaster area, and no one has the slightest idea what to do. The game is to prevent the crippled nuclear plant from turning into an “open-air super reactor spectacular” which would result in a hazardous, melted catastrophe. On April 25, 2011 – one month after the explosions at the Fukushima nuclear plant and the anniversary of Chernobyl – I was interviewed by RT and asked to compare Chernobyl and Fukushima. The clip, which you can find on YouTube, was entitled, “Can’t seal Fukushima like Chernobyl – it all goes into the sea.” Continue reading

Fukushima Daiichi: From Nuclear Power Plant to Nuclear Weapon By Prof. Anthony Hall

“Our world is faced with a crisis that has never before been envisaged in its whole existence… The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking, and thus we drift towards unparalleled catastrophe.” Albert Einstein, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, May, 1946

Attack Iran? Nuclear Insanity: "We have the Capability to Take the World Down with Us" by Felicity Arbuthnot

18 January 2012 — Global Research

‘We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen, before Israel goes under.’ (Martin Van Creveld, Professor of Military History at Israel’s Hebrew University, September 2003)

Iran: We have been here before. The year before the assault on and near destruction of unarmed neighbouring Iraq, George W. Bush, of course declared the ‘Axis of Evil’, Iraq, Iran and North Korea.

Fukushima is the greatest nuclear and environmental disaster in human history By Steven C. Jones

20 June 2011 — Global Research

By way of comparison, the Chernobyl nuclear disaster that occured in 1986 in the Ukraine, Russia- heretofore the worst nuclear disaster on record- burned for 10 days and cumulatively killed an estimated 1 million people worldwide. The Fukushima, Japan nuclear disaster has 5 nuclear reactors burning, 2 in partial meltdown and 3 in full meltdown- and they’ve ALL been uncontrollably burning since March 11th. Its been over 3 months and this nuclear disaster remains completely out of control. In fact, some industry estimates cite the possibility that these meltdowns will be contained (optimistically) in 1-3 years, at the very earliest.

Video: As Japan Nuclear Crisis Worsens, Citizen-Led Radiation Monitors Pressure Govt to Increase Evacuations

10 June, 2011 — Source: Democracy Now!

Almost three months after the earthquake and tsunami that triggered a nuclear disaster in Japan, new radiation “hot spots” may require the evacuation of more areas further from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility.

Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency recently admitted for the first time that full nuclear meltdowns occurred at three of the plant’s reactors, and more than doubled its estimate for the amount of radiation that leaked from the plant in the first week of the disaster in March. “What they failed to mention is that they discharged an equally large amount into the ocean,” says our guest Robert Alvarez, former senior policy adviser to the U.S. Secretary of Energy. “As [the radiation] goes up the food chain, it accumulates, and by the time it reaches people who consume this food, the levels are higher than they originally were when they entered the environment.” We also go to Tokyo to speak with Aileen Mioko Smith, executive director of the group Green Action. She says citizens are leading their own monitoring efforts and calling for additional evacuations, especially for young children and pregnant women. [includes rush transcript]

Are Nuclear Reactions Still Occurring at Fukushima? By Washington’s Blog

4 June 2011 — Global ResearchWashington’s Blog

You know that Fukushima reactors 1, 2 and 3 all melted down within hours of the Japanese earthquake.

You also know that at least some of the subsequent explosions could have been caused by small-scale nuclear reactions called “prompt moderated criticalities”. But you might not know that nuclear reactions may still be ongoing.

Fukushima. The Risk for Workers: “Levels of Radiation Could Increase Exponentially” By Lucas Whitefield Hixson

TEPCO Fights Humidity in No 2 Reactor – Workers Hospitalized

Watch the TBS feed AND the TEPCO Webcam simulcast EXCLUSIVELY HERE http://lucaswhitefieldhixson.com/lucaswebcamwatch.html

TEPCO has now released to the media that more than 9 workers have suffered from heatstroke, and at least two workers were hospitalized for dehydration.  The weather onsite is beginning to heat up for summer, and this will make it much more difficult to accomplish tasks on-site.
