Radioactivity at intake of No.3 reactor rises, NHK, May 16, 2011:

Tokyo Electric Power Company says it measured 200 becquerels of cesium-134 per cubic centimeter on Sunday morning near the water intake of the No. 3 reactor. The level was higher than on the previous day, when it was 2,300 times the legal limit. […]

TEPCO also reported 2,100 times the legal limit of radioactive iodine was found in seawater near the water intake of the No. 2 reactor. Three points among four research areas along the shoreline also exceeded the legal limit. And 1.7 times the legal limit of Cesium was found close to drainage gates near the No. 5 and No. 6 reactors.

    The entire site at this time needs to be flooded. A giant “lake” needs to be build, we should be drilling underneath to shore up ( and maybe run pipes ) Concrete and earth walls need to start around the facility. Lastly, the fronage needs to be filled in as well and walled off from the ocean.

    Once this is build, you cool the entire “lake” and start the job of sending subs in to remove the stuff. Everything must be flooded, building, rooms, everything.

    just my idea. if they can build islands in Saudi Arabia, surely we can build the lake.

    • MarcinJ

      they would not even have enough power (mind blackouts due to closed power plants) to pump enough water for such a “pool”

    • Cuica

      Sorry, but I think TEPCO would think that resolution would cost too much! They are still watching their budget on this little problem and they aren’t looking at the big picture….which might be a map of the world without the island of Japan on it…..TEPCO is still worried about their profit margins.

  • And while these cataclysmic numbers FINALLY start to trickle in,…..NOTHING but SILENCE from the MSM. Please Tony Wilson, or xdr,..please,..you say, “There are things I cannot say on here”. Why not? Why are you here if you are not about warning the peeps? Pretty please, I’m begging you! If you want to email privately,…I’ll give my email.

    Sorry Tom.
    No can do.
    Tepco too busy with garden hose and sprinkling boric acid.
    Oh and now they are building a circus tent.
    How fitting.

  • And, they are planning their new “Depression drug”,…Oh yeah, fast tracking it too,…..the peeps need to go back under the ether!

  • She doesn’t like women Cassie,….don’t bother.

    • Heart of the Rose

      Like women and children aren’t my greatest concern.
      I’m just not much on hand wringing…and gasping in disbelief.
      There is important work to do.

      • Cassie

        I think that before people can take action, they have to know the truth and obtain as much information as possible. Then they will have to work through their denial system and feel the feelings. Then they can take action. That is pretty much the psychology we are up against.

        And instead of fighting amongst our selves we need to unify and
        work as a team. If we don’t, we are sunk for sure.

          Everybody has talent or intelligence they have honed. Bring it to the table. I might need some help sorting out the Inspector GC. I’ll read the directions and what enviroreporter has to say. He is keeping his inside the house. So will I. If someone is good at gardening feel free to give tips. My background is alternative and conventional medicine.

    Not the image of “women in power” you are looking for –try HILLARY!

  • Heart of the Rose

    Core to the floor —4 reactors –5 and6 on the way–full nuclear disaster— we are down wind. that is truth..to be repeated endlessly………………./.
    The sheeple need to time to wrap their heads around it?
    Take eternity…no prob.

  • Heart of the Rose

    Name one political leader..one religious leader that cares more than me?

    • Deetu 3

      @Heart of the Rose..can’t be done.There aren’t any…hookers n pimps in fancy dress don’t count.

    • anonymous 2

      Calling people sheeple is very derogatory about people you supposedly care about.

      • Heart of the Rose

        Mostly I refer to them as the People.
        Sheeple is not my term…it refers to the blind and “sheepish” masses.
        The very lot ..that have us in this mess.
        If it raises awareness ..that’s good.

      Jesus the Good Shepherd cares more than you:

      โ€œThe LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.โ€โ€ – Zephaniah 3:17

      Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21

    Without the Heart of the Rose and other resistance organizations the sheeple have nothing. Nothing.
    Sometimes we speak of unspoken things between us.
    Maybe we’d like to live to tell the story!
    Get it?

    Hey y’all…
    It is a Tricky thing to speak harsh truths….they like to act out and
    throw tantrums, and Kill the Messenger when something new and
    painful and threatening to the ego is pushed into the light of day.
    you hear me Cassie? Noah had to do his Thing without waiting for
    any “consensus”.
    We have to move with clarity, purpose as much as possible, but the
    truth is that we are born, raised, work, play, and act out our whole
    lives WITHOUT Knowing The TRUTH, most of the time. but we still
    are acting, moving, doing, willing things to happen.
    Some folks are these tough country mamas who are going to do their best to survive!! So, If you are one of these, you guys gotta
    get with the total preparation mode.
    Understand, ladies?
    Our whole collapsing false-money economy was going to bring it
    sooner or later, without the radiation complication.
    We have been living beyond our collective means, and unless you
    are the Shining Example of Self-Reliant Food-Producer, Fuel, etc.
    I say unless you are one of those, you are pretty well doomed to
    be one of the masses of peasants screaming for food and water
    like is the movie Soylent Green. Rent it. See it. Dig it.
    OK Cassie?
    The Radiation is real deadly, the protective measures described by
    some of the dedicated Posters here are worth printing down hard-copy and having seminars among those who are Adult enough to
    handle it….see, it is a diplomatically delicate thing for you to face:
    that we have diluted Reality with our notions of “equality”, and
    there are many folks who are not mentally equipped to even talk
    about these issues.
    In a crucial moment, You must choose to follow a Leader, not
    stand there like Joe Feminist demanding MORE EXPLANATION!
    MOVE IT, NOW! (Smiley-Face, sparkly-blue-eyes!)
    Because Your Man Said So! (Winky Sparkly Blue Eyes!)

      Hi Jack:

      Thank you for your reply.
      I only found this site yesterday, but I am a
      quick study and finally getting up to speed. ๐Ÿ™
      I hear you.
