Fukushima Daiichi Nuke Disaster Update
Fukushima Radioactive Fallout, Nears Chernobyl Levels
“They said it wasn’t like Chernobyl, and they lied!”
The plant, indeed, looked like Chernobyl — an out of control nuclear accident, unresponsive to all the fixes promised by nuclear engineers. The Japanese disaster at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, is a human tragedy of striking proportions. As many as ten thousand citizens may be dead in the catastrophe, with many more at risk for radiation poisoning, at levels yet to be determined.
Fukushima’s “Chernobyl Moment” Fast Approaching
The calamity at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is deteriorating and the nightmare scenario is becoming more likely. The levels of radioactive iodine in the seawater beyond the plant have soared to 1,250-times above normal contaminating the fish in the area and turning the coastal waters into a nuclear wasteland. At the same time, the prospect of a full-core meltdown still looms-large with no remedy in sight. Brave workers have put their lives on the line with no meaningful sign of improvement. … The lights are still “blinking red.”
Radiation Dectection Deception
Parts of America’s radiation alert network have been out of order during Japan’s nuclear crisis, raising concerns among some lawmakers about whether the system could safeguard the country in a future disaster.” According to the EPA, “About 20 monitors out of 124 nationwide were ‘out of service’ earlier this week, including units in Harlingen, TX. and Buffalo, N.Y.”
