Title: JAPAN: Fukushima Plant Operator Reports New Leak

Timothy Mousseau, Professor of Biological Sciences at University of South Carolina: We’re going to see leaks of this magnitude on a near daily basis. There’s going to be all sorts of leaks. We know they’re happening; they’re just not being documented for the most part. It’s an inherently unstable situation. […]

It’s a very unstable situation […]

The current situation in Fukushima is extremely unstable. There haven’t been the engineering developments needed to really solve the problem in the short or long-term. I think everybody’s just struggling to figure out how to deal with this.

    Principles of Modern Engineering…once imitated never duplicated.

    About 4:30 into this video you can see the enormous storage area filled with contaminated waste created by attempts to decontaminate residences. Unreal and worthless until fissioning stops. IMHO http://youtu.be/-ZUw6GCw2f8

  • "It’s an inherently unstable situation."

    "It’s a very unstable situation."

    How many times does one have to repeat, that we have an out of control UNSTABLE situation that nobody has a clue what to do with and that will affect you and our planet, before people will truly pay attention?

    A couple of situations:

    1. THREE Nuclear Plant Meltdowns, which are unstable and unable to locate the highly radioactive cores.

    2. Critically Damaged Spent Fuel Pools which have the potential of thousands of Hiroshima bombs hang precariously by a thread and are UNSTABLE at best. This hazard looms like a pendulum of death for the planet.

    How about those Redskins, the Cowboys, the Patriots, the Saints, how about we talk about something else? Maybe change the name of this website to head in the sand news?

    Doubt that we will ever see a new stadium built to talk about world preservation… come on, let's make some sports talk here! Never see Helen Caldicott on a box of Wheaties…

    Just sayin it's hard to live in this priority backwards world. My concern with our well being hasn't helped me with the ladies much.

    I remember writing an article in the local paper, in the readers write section back in the 1970s. I was sayin how stupid it was to build enough nuclear bombs to destroy the world more than one time. I said it was totally a waste. I said the S.A.L.T treaty was pointless. I mean why say you are trying to limit nuclear weapons when we have enough nukes to blow up the world " a thousand times?"

    I threw in a bible quote, the one where it says if the salt loses its' salt it is only fit for the dung heap. (We wasted a lot of time and money paying men in suits to negotiate.)

    My reward? The newspaper censored the Bible quote. They took out the phrase, "dung heap." Too vulgar? Too much to the point?

    Anyway, the life I have today, as I am reading this enenews is no surprise to me. Hence, me be unincredulous. I believe the bad news. No problem.

    We concerned people need to get uniforms and pads. WE need to be on the cover of GQ. Fat chance. Oh well. At least I get to practice typing.

    "The life I have today," I am avoiding seafood. I take iodine supplements. Kelp is the best source of iodine, I am told. Kelp is food. It comes from the sea.

    Sea what I mean?

    Just remember to smile..
    Apparently, a big smile blocks alpha, beta, and gamma radiation.
