Fukushima still spewing massive radiation plumes; America in ‘huge trouble,’ says nuclear expert

Ethan A. Huff

During a recent Congressional delegation trip to Japan, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden witnessed with his own eyes the horrific aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, which we have heard very little about from the media in recent months. The damage situation was apparently so severe, according to his account, that he has now written a letter to Ichiro Fujisaki, Ambassador of Japan, petitioning for more to be done, and offering any additional support and assistance that might help contain and resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

The letter, which many experts see as the ominous writing on the wall for the grave severity of the circumstances, offers a disturbing glimpse into what is really going on across the Pacific Ocean that the mainstream media is apparently ignoring. While referencing the fact that all four of the affected reactors are still “badly damaged,” Sen. Wyden seems to hint in his letter that Reactor 4, which has reportedly been on the verge of collapse for many months now, could be nearing catastrophic implosion.

Imminent collapse of Reactor 4 could create a mass extinction event of both humans and animals

According to Christina Consolo, an award-winning biomedical photographer and host of Nuked Radio, Reactor 4 has remained in such bad shape that even a very small earthquake could quickly level the building, sending the fuel from more than 1,500 unused fuel rods into the environment. And with Reactor 4 still filled with the highest levels of radioactive MOX and other fuels, the consequences of this potential collapse could be far worse than anything that has happened thus far as a result of the earthquake and tsunami.

“[S]itting at the top of [Reactor 4], in a pool that is cracked, leaking, and precarious even without an earthquake, are 1,565 fuel rods (give or take a few), some of them ‘fresh fuel’ that was ready to go into the reactor on the morning of March 11 when the earthquake and tsunami hit,” writes Consolo. “If they are MOX fuel, containing six percent plutonium, one fuel rod has the potential to kill 2.89 billion people.”

Sen. Wyden is also asking U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Gregory Jaczko to assess how much additional assistance their agencies might be willing to provide to help Japan, and the entire world, avoid a nuclear catastrophe of Biblical proportions.

“The scope of damage to the plants and to the surrounding area was far beyond what I expected and the scope of the challenges to the utility owner, the government of Japan, and to the people of the region are daunting,” wrote Sen. Wyden in his letter, dated April 16, 2012. “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.”


When oh when are we going to take back control of this planet and out of the hands of the Financial and Political Elite, who, after many many years of controlling this planet, have caused us to be in this mess ?

What sort of MAD SCIENTISTS came up with the idea of storing NUCLEAR fuel, both fresh and waste NUCLEAR FUEL in large pools of water situated at the top of these buildings. Why have the "Elite" been so careless with OUR planet, so much so that Fukishima could be worse than actual NUCLEAR WAR ?

Time and time again monstrous corporations are allowed to continue projects which have at the outset the potential to pollute OUR ENVIRONMENT to the extent that wildlife and habitats are destroyed for 1000s of years to come. That in the course of working on these projects the potential ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTERS are known of beforehand but are ignored in the interest of £££££££££££££££.

Knowing the consequences to life, environment and the planet when, not if, these things go wrong, is it not madness to allow these projects to even get off the drawing board ?

Take just 60 seconds and jot down how many man made ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTERS you can remember that have occurred in the last 60 years. You will come up with quite a few, the worst ever GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER up until March 2011 was CHERNOBYL, the worst localised disaster was the Bhopal disaster. On top of that add Oil Tanker accidents, Oil Rigs exploding (latest being the Gulf of Mexico BP disaster), Toxic Waste released into the environment, Toxic Pollutants dumped on land and in the Oceans etc etc etc. And don't forget to take into account those disasters that never make it the News, such as those happening in South America, the Amazon (Google it).

The Elite are so corrupt and greedy that they are willing to ignore the safety of the Planetary Environment and OUR SAFETY to make more £££££££££££ than they could ever wish to need in a 100 lifetimes.

They even want to be allowed to start extracting minerals and oil, gas etc from the last pristine (to a point) places on earth such as the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Place your bets, how many months before the first Gas leak, Oil Spill, Chemical Poisoning and general pollution of these environments occurs ?

Until we are 100% sure that we can at least contain any disaster locally, or better still 100% sure that if say a natural disaster were to occur then anything mankind is doing will not add to or make things even worse.

Fukishima was due to a Tsunami started by an Earthquake. Wouldn't it have been sensible to, at least, build the Nuclear power Plants further inland, away from areas which are prone to Earthquakes and not store the Nuclear Fuel in water tanks built at the top of these buildings ?

When the earth is so polluted that the children and grandchildren of the Elite are suffering terrible deaths and incurable diseases brought about by the madness of their parents or grandparents greedy actions or in-actions, do you think they will start to do things differently then?

FRANKENSTEINS MONSTER is now the CEO of Globe Corp Industries and is employing many many more Dr Frankenstiens and creating future disasters, if we manage to survive this one.

We know who the Elite are, lets hope that those employed in their protection wake up soon and realise that their families are susceptible to the consequences of the disasters their employers create.

The sooner we remove FRANKENSTIENS Elite the safer we will be.

I call these people the Elite, but the only thing they really seem to be Elite in is creating disasters of nightmare proportions for us and obscene amounts of wealth for them.
