I am told over and over again that chemtrails pose a far greater risk than does radiation from Fukushima. That might be true in the short-term but it speaks nothing of the coming centuries when humanity will pay the piper for all its nuclear mistakes. When the economy and credit bubble finally fully bursts, we can take some solace in that the governments are not going to have the money for the same level of insanity they practice now. But when the money runs out, who is going to pay for nuclear nightmares like Fukushima? Who is going to build the new protective dome over Chernobyl?
So it’s sunny and 90 degrees and there is nothing in the world to worry about right? Don’t worry because big brother is worrying for you! Well that’s the way it is at Fukushima, in Japan in general and around the world in terms of keeping Fukushima on the radar screen. I have not heard much about it, have you?
The Good News First
The heavily damaged No. 4 reactor building and its spent-fuel pool at the No. 1 nuclear plant can withstand earthquakes with intensities of upper 6 on the Japanese scale of 7, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Aug. 30. The utility said it confirmed the strength of the building after conducting a seismic analysis. The reactor building was rocked by a hydrogen explosion after the onset of the accident caused by the magnitude-9.0 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami in March 2011.
TEPCO said it found no major damage in walls supporting the storage pool on the top floor. It also said the building now has almost the same strength it had before the disaster because the removal of rubble created by the explosion has decreased its weight. The seismic study is part of TEPCO’s preparations to start removing nuclear fuel from the pool in December 2013. The company also said it plans to build a steel frame that will hold steel sheets covering the No. 4 reactor building to prevent radioactive substances from spreading.
The Bad News
At the end of August, the operator of the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant continued to face difficulties in controlling the amount of water being injected into the three crippled reactors at the plant, which is critical to keeping the melted fuel inside cool. The amount of water injected into the reactors dropped below the minimum required level twice on the previous day. Workers have operated valves to increase the coolant, but the water flow is falling from time to time compared with the initially set level. TEPCO has yet to nail down the cause, but it suspects something may be stuck inside the pipes, hampering the flow of water.
I think this qualifies as a potential category-5 hurricane of a nuclear type, meaning this type of situation could easily morph into something serious enough to affect the entire human race. At around 12:00 AM on September 4, a high rate of temperature increase (step-like increase by 1.6°C) was detected on Unit 2 RPV bottom temperature monitoring thermometer. I don’t think this made the evening news in New York, did it?
On 8/30/2012, the injection water for reactor 1~3 decreased all of a sudden (cf. Sudden decrease of injecting water for reactor 1~3, cause not known). TEPCO announced they fixed it but the sudden decrease of water injection happened once again on the same day. Even on 8/31/2012, it’s still decreasing intermittently but they haven’t verified the reason yet. TEPCO adjusted the valves twice on 8/30/2012, but because the trouble was still going on, they adjusted the valves five times from 0:00 to 15:00 on 8/31/2012.
"Japan is small," writes Mochizuki on the online Fukushima Diary. "Fukushima fallout has reached most secluded areas far from Tokyo. Even if you feel like it is far, it’s not far for radiation at all. On 8/24/2012, Sakuma city government announced they measured 350 Bq/Kg of cesium from a wild mushroom beside Asamayama. It’s about 256 km from Fukushima plant."
I am really not sure which is more dangerous to the human race, the huge tonnage of nuclear material at risk in Fukushima or the men and women behind the scenes who think they know enough that they have the right to control the information the media is not putting out about the realities around us.
Taking it Positively
Whenever I think about problems like Fukushima I think about many of the difficulties facing humanity. The nuclear industry expresses the tragic flaw of modern civilization and the arrogance of its men. But that flaw runs deep so we see many threats from incredibly stupid things like the fluoridation of water to the mercury put into children’s vaccines. And I agree, microwave radiation is nothing to laugh at—we are experimenting and having fun doing it—but this could take our children and grandchildren to early graves.
How do we stay positive when we have to think of such dastardly things? Well for me, the first thing is to always bless the truth, knowing that it’s better to be informed and in tune with reality then to be blindsided by it. Second I take this kind of information as reinforcement to pay more attention to my kids and the kinds of exposure they have to toxins of the many types that exist. And that means of course to load them up with more minerals, especially magnesium, sodium bicarbonate and iodine.
Special Note: Radiation is more damaging to weak cells than strong ones. Also fast growing cells are more vulnerable so fetuses and young children are most affected. One of the reasons sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is so effective against radiation is that it raises cell voltage and cellular pH making the cells stronger. Magnesium injects strength to this strengthening and iodine lights the fire in terms of metabolism.
