Well yeah that is true. Also there is the Common Spent Fuel Storage unit on the Fukushima site that holds 5600 TONS of fuel assemblies, Nasty dirty and many times the amount this event has already put into the atmosphere. That one small building is enough contamination to punch everything's ticket. Worldwide. How much care is being shown this danger? I have been looking and looking and not one story i have seen save my own has even mentioned this very real danger. This fuel is being stored in a building 70 meters from the worst nuclear accident ever. Just how long do they think they have to deal with this danger in waiting? 10 years, 20 years... or perhaps they WANT THIS FUEL TO BURN!!! I would hope to stop this from becoming a reality but i don't get too much help. This cold war thinking is allowing a very real and ready to burn disaster unlike anything man has ever seen. Let those 12 or 13 thousand fuel rods burn and it's curtains for much of the life on this planet. But yes their are a bunch of other spent fuel pools sitting around. Yes they do count as danger. I would just rate that danger a tad lower than the CSFSU of Fukushima.

Fukushima proves that a nuclear strike on the USA is suicide for any country, all of them. There's more than 700 nuclear reactors in the USA. A few more than 100 are still generating electricity or in the cool down phase. Dozens and dozens of them are of the design used in Fukushima. They require backup pumps and generators for cooling when they are not connected to the grid. They require the grid to properly operate. They are required to only store 7 days of diesel to run their cooling pumps. An EMP that took down the grid would mean catastrophe for planet Earth. Let some folks live underground. They won't be living above ground after a serious EMP or nuclear strike. That's why nuclear weapons are ridiculous. It really is MAD! Many of our reactors use MOX fuel, with plutonium. There is no deadlier substance on planet Earth. It requires 250,000 years to deplete itself totally.

They had moved some of that spent fuel at last report. They do however have a major problem in that some of the rods have fallen and broken and gotten tangled. They have no solution at the moment and are counting on thinking of something. A new discovery of some material capable of withstanding hell itself or some new physics maybe.... My money is on them NOT succeeding in time where we have so far failed in 80 years of trying. Because we don't have 80 years left to find a solution, indeed not even forty. My guess is enough nastiness has been entered into the environment already that if we stopped it all today, the damage is done and within decades life on earth will be unrecognisable. Another ten years as it's been going for just the last six (OMG is that all it is?) and I do not believe there will be any point in even trying anymore.

I have seen the fist of nuclear. Had it smash my life. Lost much, will lose even more. Too bad for me i guess. I do as i think i have to. Being boot ...ed by the nuclear cartel is just part of my path. If i fail i will be sad. If You all fail you will be dead. Work the problem QUICK.

Its out of control now! They don't know where the cores of three of the reactors are, and the fuel in reactor #4 burned off a couple of years ago. Plutonium in your sushi anyone?

Move fuel? They've lied about everything. Those thousands of containers holding contaminated water can't withstand a 5.0 earthquake. They'll never get this under control. Its impossible now. Round up the executives of GE and put them on trial for crimes against humanity. They decided to put the reactors on the shoreline and not 100 feet above that.

Fukushima is a warning shot... necessary after you all ignored Chernobyl, I don't know how many more warning we will get before it's too late to end this nuclear nightmare and stop these men and women that are so willing to kill on a mass scale. When the limit is passed it will be too late, Just like Fukushima and Chernobyl are too late to stop. 31 years and nothing can be done to fix Chernobyl. 50 or 100 years will be the same failure. These dirty devices play for keeps, and they punch real HARD!

Fukushima is the last shot in my opinion. No more are needed. Unless they do something they are not yet even contemplating, (I detailed above once) within a decade at most, there is nothing left but waiting for the end.

Important to remember, Chernobyl and all the nuclear tests and clandestinely used nukes even, all of it is just accumalating. This latest is enough on its own to screw us, unless they do something they can't yet do. Yet add it to what we're already burdened with and we're drifting over the horizon without a paddle in our kayak.

The Common Spent Fuel Storage Unit is the last shot they will need. The round is in the chamber and the hammer is pulled back and there is no safety on this gun!

I agree. That just needs an earthquake or tsunami. No chance of that in the next few decades..... :-) Not in Japan surely not.

Yes sir spot on! I am in Perth Western Australia. I am a keen horticulturalist and have been observing "strangeness" in nature these past few years. A lot more mutations than usual, as I grow my own seed from heirloom varieties I definitely know what I am seeing. I have 2 new "species" of chilli plants this year and maybe a tomato too!! Maybe, if they grow true we shall see. One of them has proven to be non-viable. It's seed didn't grow. A classic sign of harmful mutation. Pity the chillies were a beautiful sight to behold. But this is the lighter side. There is a much darker one.

I know that we are seeing an alarming spike of cancers and of lung cancer especially, despite having seen it reduced dramatically over the years with an aggressive anti-smoking campaign. My ex wife and my daughter in her twenties both have contracted a thyroid condition (with no family history) and the doctors agree with me, the most likely cause of it is "hot particles" as in low level ionising radiation. Doubtless from having ingested radioactive nano-particles which come from Depleted Uranium weapons and of course in abundance from Fukushima since 2011. Much in the atmosphere and the two girls both travelled to Europe by plane a number of times since 2011 increasing their risk. The ex wife also has lung cancer despite never having smoked and being a fitness freak. Besides the thyroid conditions they have, lung Cancer is high on the list of expected epidemic effects in a population exposed to low level ionising radioactive particles.

It is important to distinguish between radiation and low level ionising radiation. Gamma rays as such are dangerous and normally thought of, but Alpha and Beta are more dangerous if they are ingested than any Gamma rays you may be exposed to. Sticking to the body's cells they emit their puny radiation, barely enough to break bonds on DNA, let alone kill the cell. Read that again....

Barely enough to break DNA strands, let alone kill the cell......meaning mutations happen which may be reproduced. That is cancer when it is first born. So yes brother, we are all indeed becoming infected by the same malaise. The planet is one giant model of life. Everything is interconnected and we forgot that to our peril.

A resourceful person measured the radiation from Fukushima in the first ten days after the disaster, in the Pacific Northwest. What he found was folks in Seattle were breathing in 7 hot radioactive particles an hour. Want to see lung cancer in the near future? This is it. And by the way, Obama told America at the same time they had nothing to worry about, while he took a 10 day unannounced trip to South America.

I think you'll find the lung cancers are well underway. We're seeing it in Australia. We'd been seeing a good decline over the years with big anti-smoking campaigns but it has reversed and is going through the roof. Circulatory system cancers too. Epidemic proportions but doctors not allowed to talk in some places and overall doctors do play along with the mainstream and they can sense that making waves around that won't do them much good too. Doctors are actually the least reliable arbiters when it comes to interests of the state and corporate.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Japan — Radiation levels inside Fukushima Number 2 have reached astronomical levels — experts describe the 530 sieverts per hour as “unimaginable” — yet the political establishment and its corporate media mouthpiece insist on deeming those concerned about the catastrophe ‘conspiracy theorists.’

March 11, 2011, saw a massive undersea earthquake spawn an equally formidable tsunami, and — as the world watched in horror — the wall of water slammed into the Japanese coast, knocking Tokyo Electric Power Company-operated Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant offline.

Anyone who watched the cataclysmic situation unfold on live TV surmised the dire consequences of having situated a nuclear facility in one of the world’s most active fault zones — and on the Pacific coast — but the cost in radioactive impact of the disaster has yet to be fully assessed.

That, for one, concerns Tepco’s notorious penchant for underreporting and misrepresenting the fiasco that has been the cleanup effort; and, for another, the unrelenting campaign to label anyone rightly concerned about the extent of damage a tinfoil hat-wearing lunatic.

Both of those conditions must be resolved — particularly with the discovery of astonishing radiation levels present in the Number 2 reactor — because the world deserves the truth about the catastrophe and to not be denounced when expressing fears information about Fukushima might not be as innocuous as we’ve been told.

Officials at the nuclear plant had been preparing to dismantle the paralyzed facility when they found levels of radioactivity inside the reactor’s containment vessel — where fuel rods originally generated power — to be more than seven times a previous high of 73 sieverts per hour, recorded by Tepco shortly after the fateful day. Gizmodo explains,

“Tepco made the readings by analyzing electronic noise caused by the radiation in video images. The company says this technique has a margin of error of plus or minus 30 percent (so even at the extreme low ball, the levels are no lower than 370 sieverts per minute — but possibly as high as 690!)


“Needless to say, this plant is not fit for human life. Just one dose of a single sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea. Exposure to four to five sieverts would kill about half of those exposed to it within a month, while a single dose of 10 sieverts is enough to kill a person within weeks.”

Obviously, this complicates matters quite a bit for workers tasked with containing radiation, assessing total damage, and ultimately decommissioning Fukushima Daiichi — medical personnel reportedly cannot handle the kinds of illnesses these levels would cause.

Alarmingly, officials can’t pinpoint a reason for the colossal spike — they don’t know if previous readings were incorrect, inadequate, or if something altogether unforeseen is taking place inside the eviscerated reactor.

In fact, Tepco has yet to find the radioactive fuel which melted through the bottom of the containment vessel not long after the tsunami crippled the plant’s backup cooling system — but it hasn’t been for lack of attempts.

Highly-specialized, camera-equipped, remote control vehicles have explored the interior of reactors to determine what physically happened to the fuel, but — despite the ability to withstand conditions humans can’t — radioactivity has been so intense, it kills the robots.

When one of those remotely-operated vehicles explored the Number 2 reactor recently, it happened upon a 6.5-foot gash in the grating under the containment chamber’s pressure vessel, likely caused by nuclear fuel melting through — but Tepco officials aren’t entirely sure of that, either.

“It may have been caused by nuclear fuel that would have melted and made a hole in the vessel, but it is only a hypothesis at this stage,” Tepco spokesman Tatsuhiro Yamagishi told AFP on Friday. “We believe the captured images offer very useful information, but we still need to investigate given that it is very difficult to assume the actual condition inside.”

A new camera-toting remotely-operated vehicle — designed to endure up to 1,000 sieverts per hour — had been slated to explore the newly-troubled reactor, but doubts about what caused the spike forced Tepco to reschedule its March deployment for the Number 1 reactor.

Melted nuclear fuel is suspected to have wound up on the floor of the containment vessels of the three reactors which suffered core meltdowns at Fukushima — but radiation has been so acute, even that assessment has proven impossible.

A dark mass appeared in footage taken of the hole in Number 2, but Tepco officials could not say with certainty it was the missing, melted uranium fuel rods.

In order to fully decommission Fukushima Daiichi — a process now projected to cost a whopping $190 billion and take no less than four decades — details surrounding the extent of destruction must be measured and quantified.

“Confirming the conditions inside the reactor is a first step toward decommissioning,” Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Hiroshige Seko told the press Friday, as quoted by the Japan Times.

“While difficult tasks and unexpected matters may arise, we will mobilize all of Japan’s technological capabilities to steadily implement decommissioning work and rebuild Fukushima.”

Considering so little is currently understood about the catastrophe — from the location of melted uranium rods to the cause of the abrupt and troubling spike in radiation — perhaps so-called conspiracy theorists who doubt the ‘Fukushima is under control, don’t worry about it’ narrative are the only ones displaying a modicum of common sense.
