Euronews, Sept. 5, 2013: Two years after the accident instead of progress being made the news gets worse almost by the day, with many now saying the disaster has spun out of control, and that its full extent has been hidden from the public.

CNBC, Sept. 2, 2013 (h/t Anonymous tip)Tilman Ruff, Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne: I think what’s really needed to deal with this unprecedented, very difficult situation, is really an international effort to bring together the best resources and expertise and equipment, with the experience of other nuclear accidents, with the experience of radioactively contaminated site cleanup, to mobilize the global effort. Because this is a global problem, not just a Japanese problem. […] [Prime Minister Shinzo Abe] may need to review some policy decisions and approaches very sharply because […] treating Fukushima largely with denial and cover-up is clearly not working and doesn’t deal really with a crisis situation.

    " I think what’s really needed to deal with this unprecedented, very difficult situation, is really an international effort "

    I don't buy it, if they knew how to fix this
    the global nuke industry would do just that.

    Its foolish to think Japan is "going it alone"

    Japan had a plan,
    ok, looks like not a very good one

    But know one had a better one
    and no one does now either.

    from a previoues story

    " some experts dismiss the current cleanup plans as just a way of defending the status quo by convincing the public "

    that the damage can be undone

    thats what this guy is also saying

    Prime Minister Abe's new clothes……

    How can he have the gall to guarantee that there will be a Tokyo to host the Olympics in 2020?

    Did anyone see that blurb/ribbon that went across the bottom of the screen which said radiation has spiked in areas around the plant to fatal levels…it has probably been that way for awhile.

    Just think the Japanese had Diesel Generators when the power went down, and look what happened there, American Nuclear Reactors only have battery powered back up…either 4 or 8 hours.

    Dear CNBC. Your report was weak at best, Full farce at its worst. Let me help interpret this into financialeese for you: There's a wonderful opportunity at hand. Can't miss. Short DRI,DOLE,FDP and others. See, its bad enough to get S.Korea to cease imports from a good chunk of japan. When they measure Crab, Salmon and Cod for radiation, like Cesium (and god knows what else) And find its off the charts…good bye FOOD FROM THE PACIFIC. Get it? Sleep well and happy investing. With love – a cynic

    This disaster spun out of control on 3/11/11. If they would have done what the Russians did at Chernobyl things could have been somewhat better but there was less than 200 tons of uranium they were dealing with. Unit 3 has (had) 1700 tons of plutonium originally, which is now boiling it's way straight down to Brazil.
    The only thing that has spun out of control recently is the "liberal" medias ability to control the positive spin on things. For them this has been a damage control operation reassuring the hapless non ENE folks about the true devastating nature of this event ever since day 2 of this planet killing disaster. Unfortunately for the MSM, the internet, with all it's crowd sourcing info, is making them completely irrelevant. Sorry Mr. Veep, referring to the MSM as the relevant media is like claiming Obomber is some type of peace loving diplomat.
    The good news is that the cosmos is teaming with life – http://disclosureproject.org
    We might not be missed so they'll have to find some other sentient beings to probe. Of course there's that whole gambling crowd who are "all in" bettin on the return of Joe Smith or his lil bro Jesus or Mohammed to come back in the nick of time and save everything. I think the only person who could do that may be L. Ron Hubbard. How long are we going to have to wait for the return of these guys? We just might be running outta time.
    Meanwhile, enjoy that north pacific sushi and pretend it's all OK.
