    can an entire storm system become contaminated and blow across to the Rockies???

    what is next, aliens descend and begin to put the strongest of us into pickle jars???

    Hopefully it won't topple the spent fuel pool.

      what happens if it does topple it, and then pick up all those burning embers and carry it to north america???

      am i going nuts or are there no plans to stabilize this situation?

      where is the common sense? i call on Putin and Obama to stand up and topple the Japanese Government and place concrete containment over the melting coriums. this is total bullshit. it's as if they want humanity to cease.

        They can't fix it.

        They built these reactors on fragile sandstone, which cannot support the weight of a huge steel arch or concrete dome, or so say some experts on this thread.

        Meanwhile the hot 65 ton radioactive corium lava blobs are melting down into the ground, with no one even paying attention to them.

        Finally, they are bankrupt, with even more debt than Greece, and Fukushima just put a nail in their coffin.

        That is why they are so desperately trying to cover this all up and move people back into contaminated areas, to grow food, manufacture stuff and pay taxes.

          AGR: Do you see any chance that they could, or could have, built new containment pits beside each reactor, with a temporary cover structures over each reactor and pit, and then somehow moved the corium mess into the new containments, and covered those with new sarcophagi, thereby protecting both the groundwater/ocean and the atmosphere?

        Ding Ding! Jane plz tell daddy what hes won! Our self appointed masters have come up with a plan to take us all out if and when they are unable to–Think about it…. A slow fizzing bomb that will irradiate the entire world UNLESS 2 Million freakin gallons per minute is dumped on it.

    In these weather conditions anything could happen. Because SP4 is very unstable and might collapse, or the whole site may become unstable, it is import to be prepared.

    You can't rely on your government. You should all have realized this by now! Everyone is going to have to become proactive.

    Get extra food, water, and fuel, just in case you have to bunker down for a while.

    Purchase A Geiger counter that can detect alpha, beta, and gamma radiation, and learn how to use it properly. Download this free handy Geiger Counter guide.

    http://technologypals.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Using-a-Geiger-Counter-to-test-food-for-Radioactive-Contamination.pdf

    Learn dietary systems that can help eliminate radiation contamination from your body. Here is a good starting point. Stock up on these food items.

    http://enenews.com/forum-best-practices-combating-effects-radiation

    If you have a Geiger Counter set up a local community radiation monitoring system, and early warning system. Send out emails or phone those on the contact list, if an event happens.

    Here is example of what you can create for your local community.

    http://sccc.org.au/archives/2630

    Get your family and friends up to speed on what they should be doing to protect themselves. Concentrate on those who are willing to listen.

    Learn techniques on how to keep radioactive contamination out of your living space.

    You may have to consider moving, if highly radiative clouds start to continually…

      You may have to consider moving, if highly radiative clouds start to continually come through.

      Hopefully everything will remain stable.

            It might sound silly but if you really have to bunker down for a week (not leaving the house at all) then a few rolls of extra strong sticky tape about 2 to 3 inches wide is a must for sealing doors and windows, and people should not forget the chimney. we'll thats what we where told in case 'the bomb' got dropped. Wow I sound old.

              Blue, radiation comes right into my house through the walls! Will probably tape windows anyway. Then I will make a hat out of tin foil for each of us to wear…

    I hope SFP at unit #4 will stand up to this.

    Interestingly, research has shown that typhoons passing over a land mass which is seismically active can relieve plate pressure. This can help to avert the creation of larger future earthquakes.

    I hope they don't lose their electrical power to Fukushima Daichi power plant … I will lose all faith in the Japanese ..

    They (TEPCO) seem like a bunch of clowns with their duct tape and bubble gum patchwork… I wonder if they have recently tested any necessary backup power ?? for just incase

    @vital 1
    Thank you for that post about what to do to prepare. I needed a kick in the backside right about now.

    In the know but feeling unprepared…I have to admit I am a bit overwhelmed when it comes to “getting prepared” for the next hit from Fukushima be it a storm, earthquake, new explosion or gravity just finally taking out some vital structural component. I’ve been following this issue for some time and reading lots but the lack of easy access to reliable information needed for self-preservation does not exist. The learning curve for the average person is huge and the reality that the government and media are not reliable is also a big hurdle to get your mind past.

    The government agencies that should be doing the “work” to prepare and warn people are not doing their job. It is as if they are gathering data about the problems and keeping it to themselves so they can “study” us all later. These people in government are just regular people with families. Are they taking action to protect their families with the insider information they have? Have they bought into their own disinformation campaign in order to carry on?

    WHERE ARE THE WHISTLE BLOWERS? The time to let the true impact of radiation from Fukushima be known is NOW more than ever. So many could be protected if people know what to do and when to do it.

    continued…

      …continued

      Anyone I mention Fukushima to seems to be clueless or look at me with that “you’re a bit paranoid” look. I’m really not up for educating all those around me anymore. I shouldn’t say educating really it is convincing them that I am not up for. So many people I know are so anti-anything “negative” in their lives. They have bought into this whole philosophy of “getting the negatives” out of their life to the point that they do so at their own peril. People just want to remain in a state of ignorance so they can hold on to happiness. Maybe this mental problem is just in the USA. Even knowing what I know I am a happy person, just frustrated over what to do and when to do it. Why are people so unwilling to want to face reality and take action? If people would snap out of their la, la, land and see what is going on maybe we could shut this global nuclear nightmare down.

        Hey enoughalready, you took the words out of my mouth…and let me tell you, people are like that not only in the USA – it's the same over here. Absolutely NUMB.
        Fuku made it to the headlines again for a day after the unit 2 endoscopy. Since then – nothing.
        We have a leaking gas rig in the North Sea since 2 weeks, leaking 200000 cubic meters gas every day, nobody knows how to fix it – the company doesn't even hold a press conference!
        Nobody gives a damn.

        *well, we do :-(

          I have been trying to inform the people I know but the majority just seems to not want to know or believes the press when comparing the rads to X-rays etc. I have even been told to "Shut up" by my own family members. Thus I understand your frustration but I will keep posting and sending e-mails to congress and the president concerning this massive nuclear disaster. Please don't let these la la land folks deter you from doing what YOU deem necessary. Take good care of YOU.

            moonshellblue,….I am sorry that you were told to 'shut-up' by a family member,…whom you love and were merely trying to warn. This will be painful,…to be sure. Watching others throw their lives away,….and throwing their children's lives away in the same swell swoop! (Our Grand babies sometimes even! :-( )

            Like you,…..I don't let them deter me one iota! :-)

              StillJill, I'm pretty tough and will not let anyone deter me from what I know is the right thing to do for the environment and future generations. which is to shut down all nuclear plants or at least the Mark 1 BWR's it's just plain common sense. If only we could convince the nuclear community as there jobs would not be in jeopardy this stuff needs to be watched 24 /7 therefore I'm confused as to why they are so concerned about saving the nuclear industry as it will take many moons to clean up the messes we have created. Perhaps it's investments, etc. but what good is radioactive money? You know what I mean. It's just so damn confusing, frustrating and the list is never ending just like the fight against nuclear power but I will never stop trying to convince others NO NUKES.
