Now, even taking low estimate the amount of cesium-137 that is contained in the [No. 4] spent fuel pool, it’s roughly 5,000 times the amount of cs-137 released during the Hiroshima bombing.

    LOW ESTIMATE
    CLOSE TO THE EDGE
    NO MORE NUKES
    NO MORE NEW NUKES
    That "rallying call" wont matter if 4 goes.
    We'll all be dead along with every living thing on the planet.
    makes me so fucking angry and sad for the people of japan.

    So much cesium we will be able to taste it as we go…

    The consensus of those who are in charge in Japan, US, the EU, the NRS, the IAEC, the nuclear industry, supporting politicians, lobbyists, consultants and all the other associated shills complicit with the MSM, is not to report the real conditions at Fukushima Daiichi.

    In a US Homeland Security study about a “a hypothetical catastrophic event like a radiological dispersal device”, one of the study’s authors concludes and states the following, “Anything we can do from a policy standpoint that can reduce excessive public concern about an event has huge economic benefits. Carefully crafting messages to both advise the public and alleviate fears not only helps to prevent panic, but also helps to prevent long-term economic harm. Anything that can be done from a policy standpoint to reduce excessive fear from the public has considerable benefits.”

    Although I have no confidence in what is being done to abort the radiological firestorm to come, people have a right to know, no matter how frightening the possibilities. If the public was accurately informed, it would demand an international intervention. But, if TEPCO and the current folks in charge are permitted to continue on the same path (the fix and the PR), there will absolutely be…a global catastrophe.

    So, how do we motivate/manipulate the MSM into action?

    "So, how do we motivate/manipulate the MSM into action?" Ha HA! Good one. Hint: do not watch fairy tales on the complicit MSM.

    Why do we continue to accept reports about "Cesium 137?" Is that what we fear? Or do we fear other, more serious radioactivity components such as Plutonium, etc.?

    I want to hear about those levels in future–not Cesium 134. I have decided that articles such as this one are intended to keep us preoccupied so that we don't demand the truth instead.

    WoW! that is a big number. I thought the IDF had something to do with this. what to do……

  • el

    We SHOULD be demanding an answer as to what happened at #3.

    But then we would see the obvious flaws in logic that it was caused by a natural tsunami.

    We dont get the right answers because we arent asking the right questions.

  • norbu norbu

    yes demand it, soon.

    Nobody really knows how much is in those pools

    I wonder how much cortisol this article produced.
