Associated Press, Aug. 8, 2013: Shinji Kinjo, an official at the Nuclear Regulation Authority, said faster-than-expected swelling of the underground water following the installation of the chemical barriers accelerated the emergency

Bloomberg, Aug. 7, 2013 at 8:41p ET: The regulator has also indicated growing alarm about the water leaks. Radioactive water leaks are getting out of control and “creating a state of emergency,” said Shinji Kinjo

NHK, Aug. 7, 2013: [Tepco's] paving the ground surface with asphalt to keep out rainwater

NHK, Aug. 8, 2013:  Industry, Economy and Trade Minister Toshimitsu Motegi told the panel of experts on Thursday to come up with concrete proposals by the end of September. [...]  Among the approaches he suggested was the possibility of releasing into the sea groundwater that is below the legal limits of contamination.

    sorry all you non-belivers, but after fukushiva dai'ichi unit #3 blew its 7% plutonium MOX core skyward into the jet stream, the REAL emergency was IGNORED!!!

    "the REAL emergency was IGNORED!!!"

    Howdy Proton,

    Yes, true this. We did tell them back then and as you said, they ignored it. All in accordance with the population elimination agenda. The people of Japan are toast and too ignorant to know it. A sad truth and something that is beyond mans knowledge as to why whole societies choose a path of national suicide, instead of fixing the problems that are killing them. The deal now is, it is prolly too late to fix the fuckyoushima situation. Darn.

    What many know is the next false flag is a cover-up for greater events to come, and our friend Patty B. has been elaborating on it at other sites. Great works Patty and we all appreciate you very much, as well as wish you and yours blessings to the max. May you and the girls be enjoying all the greatest of liefs benefits from here to eternity.

    In fact, blessings to all as we shift towards the unknown. Blessings as they prepare for war, and another false flag event to mask what is really happening. It could very well be the blue Kachina (Ison) that is warning of the Red One. Live well and live in the light of love…one day at a time. Lay up your treasures in Heaven by manifesting good words, deeds, and actions in your matrix every day.
    Don't forget to pray~

    ''Nuclear Official: Fukushima radioactive leaks getting out of control…''

    Getting? Getting?? When was it ever in control??? :-/

      Their PR sham has certainly spinned out of control!! I don't think that ordinary Japanese have been buying this for a long time now — they are just frightened. But now the whole world gets a glimpse. And their "BIG idea" to go kill off the world's Pacific Ocean because "they have no choice" is a bad one. They need to EVACUATE Northern Japan as they should have done in the first place. Then force the contaminated water INLAND, not out to sea. Unless their next "big idea" is that Japan is savable. It's not. You've mass-murdered your own country. So at least make SOME effort to spare the ecology of the rest of the world.

    Just read this article; "Pump and pray" in RT. I think this guy knows what he's talking about. Very Scary Stuff.

      "I was told that US experts had the idea at the beginning of bombing the reactors into the harbor. Not so stupid in my opinion. That at least may enable them to get sufficiently close to the pieces to pick them up, and should also solve the cooling problem."

      Good read. Also watch the youtube video he links in the article. Notice the year on that video. Busby is the man.

      Busby first state, "All that they can do is continue to pump in the seawater to hope that the various lumps of molten fuel will not increase their rate of fissioning. And pray. The water will then pick up the radionuclides and flow downhill back to the sea. Of course, they can put up a barrier; surround the plant with a wall. But eventually the water will fill up the pond and flow over the wall. All that water will create a soggy marsh and destabilize the foundations of the reactor buildings which will then collapse and prevent further cooling. Then the Spectacular."

      The later Busby states, "The inventory in terms of the medium half-life nuclides of radiological significance Cs-137, Cs-134 and Strontium-90, is 3 x 10 to the 18 becquerels (Bq) each. Adding these up gives about 10 to the 19 Bq. If we dissolve that entire amount into the Pacific, we get a mean concentration of 33 Bq per cubic meter – not great, but not lethal. Of course this is ridiculous since the catastrophe released less than 10 to the 17 Bq of these combined nuclides and even if all of this ends up in the sea (which it may do), the overall dilution will result in a concentration of 1 Bq per cubic meter. So the people in California can relax."

      So Mr. Busby, which is it then? Should we pray or relax? Fucking moron.

        And what exactly is the "Spectacular"? If it results in such an easily pooh-poohed 33Bq per cubic meter of water total of radiation in the Pacific what is so "Spectacular" about that? This guy talks out of both sides of his mouth, and his ass……..

          Busby has actually done amazingly good work and he is very diligent. Maybe this was out of context or very early in the game. He DOES know how serious it is. He would not even travel to Japan because he said he lost so many colleagues in Chernobyl. He's been a very GOOD anti-nuclear advocate for decades. I'll bet he is NOT making these suggestions now.
