Wake Up And Smell The Radiation - Page 2
In fact, officials in Japan have been quoted as saying that should reactor number four fail, Japan would do nothing less than have a total collapse, both as a sovereign nation and a people. Further, there are officials in both the Japanese government, as well as nuclear watchdog groups that clearly state that should the reactor building number four collapse, the world itself may be in grave danger. Japan has classifications of earthquake readiness for building: Reactor four is at level 0. That’s a zero. Zero.
Which means a tremor will take the building down. Reactor four contains approximately 1,500 spent fuel rods. Rods that if exposed to the atmosphere, could lead to an extinction-level event.
Let’s say that again- An Extinction Level Event.
The release of that much radiation into the atmosphere would be absolutely catastrophic, rendering huge sections of the planet completely uninhabitable.
Consider this letter from Senator Wyden of Oregon:
In it, the Senator, who had recently toured the disaster area, expressed his concern to Fujisaki, Ambassador of Japan, the need to better contain the area, and offered his personal assistance. He goes on to carefully word his response, stating that the TEPCOs assertion that it may take up to TEN YEARS to remediate the area of spent fuel rods, he goes on to subtly state that a priority must be given to speed that process up, explaining that any further seismic activity in that area would be very bad. I am paraphrasing here.
Look, people, I am not an alarmist. But look at the facts: The Japanese have a problem on their hand that is, simply put, getting worse. If there is any more seismic activity in that area, there is a very real possibility that the world as we know it, may end. It is time for mainstream media to pick this up. Stop allowing bloggers to do their jobs and hold accountable the Japanese government for their mess.
Further, if Japan will not allow officials in to remediate this problem, then steps should be taken to remove it from their hands.
I hate war.
I hate conflict.
I hate glowing babies even more.
