AFP, Nov. 6, 2013: “China follows closely the countermeasures to be adopted by Japan,” China’s deputy UN ambassador Wang Min told a debate on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). “We urge the Japanese side to spare no effort in minimising the subsequent impact of the accident and provide timely, comprehensive and accurate information to the international community,” Wang added. [...] the new comments are certain to annoy the Japanese government, which is already under major domestic pressure over Fukushima, diplomats in New York said. Wang said the 2011 disaster had “sounded the alarm bell for nuclear safety” [...] Fukushima “continues to be a source of serious concern, especially to adjacent countries, because of the spillage of contaminated water into the sea,” said South Korea’s deputy UN ambassador Sul Kyung-Hoon.

ABC Los Angeles, Nov. 7, 2013: Fukushima is an enormous problem that’s getting bigger. [...] The scariest part of Fukushima is not what has already happened; it’s what could still happen. Every day is a desperate effort to keep the plant from melting down. [...] Japanese Nuclear Engineer Yastel Yamada came to America to shine a light on what he feels is a flawed approach. He says TEPCO is over their heads. “The cleanup job is too large for their capability,” Yamada said. Yamada is one of many experts who say this is a bad solution, and that a meltdown is still possible. Dr. Jimmy Hara, from Nuclear Age Peace Foundation and professor of clinical family medicine at UCLA, agrees. [...] Fukushima is potentially the biggest ticking time bomb in human history.

    So the song sheet has been sufficiently circulated and we are all fixated on what might happen, not what has. We are all concerned about a building that they have worked on for two years and should be sufficiently shored up as a result. We are all worried about a pool which we will never see, and fuel removal which will happen in a pool that we will never see.

    Meanwhile actual operating reactors that blew up in three other buildings with fuel pools apparently pose no issue worth mentioning, just nothing to see there, lets all move along over to reactor 4 and the biggest threat in history.

    Such a disconnect from reality, if exhibited by an individual would be suitable for a one way ticket to the funny farm, but from "experts" who shape our reality, its just the way it is, and we should be thanking them for the candid and honest depictions.

    Time to take away the keys.

    So fitting and miss leading the wave of cancers and child deaths in the us are going to be appalling and a gross injustice. A generation will die and then many will be deformed and even worse already. Japan should be quarantined and the World powers should move as many as they can away from there all plants and operations should be shut down. If they do not chain reactions will happen from multiple earth quakes and the island will sink anyway.

    The earth is about to get pretty harsh and the west coast of all countries in the pacific will be really cheap real estate like buying marsh land in Florida.

    There are no sides anymore. It's a global problem. Japan seems to have at least some input from U.S. nuclear community (Energy Sec'y visit last week), so I would say that what China is asking is what the world is asking, and Japan and the U.S. had darn well better pony up.

        Yeah, but Plutonium-244 can go up to over 808 MILLION years, before to decay to something else (no1 knows). But it will last forever. Even mere 100K years is already "forever" to humans as point of view. Neptunium-237 can last for over 21 MILLION years, those news are so bad they are afraid to report anything.

      I have the understanding that TEPCO has been cutting corners and saving money for the shareholders instead of spending it on the cleanup. For example, the huge tanks holding radioactive water which were not even welded together, Also, all the misinformation given out by TEPCO about many aspects of the cleanup and the huge amounts of radiation at Fukushima does not inspire any confidence that they are equipped to handle the cleanup. It they had never falsified the safety tests many, many times, the reactors would have been shut down long before Mar 11, and they would never have put MOX fuel into reactor #3 or stored live unused MOX fuel in the SFP of reactor #4. Lying only brings about greater tragedy.

      I don't want radioactive rice or other radioactive goods brought into the US. So every time TEPCO lies about the amount of radiation released at Fukushima, it is killing me and my children. Murderers need to be in jail with a lifetime sentence.

      The Rokkasho processing plant needs to be outlawed by the international community. Every nuclear country needs to voluntarily shut down all the nuclear reactors.

      Dumping radioactive nuclear waste, whether incinerated or not, is against international law. UN peacekeepers need to stop Japan from destroying the Pacific/

      I'm glad that China is actively concerned about all the radioactive nuclear waste being dumped into the ocean by Japan.

    Meanwhile, take a look at this site:

    http://world-nuclear.org/info/Country-Profiles/Countries-A-F/China–Nuclear-Power/

    Scroll down the page to the map of reactors in China. Notice, too, that there are 16 in operation, almost all on the coast. And the little box on the left informs that there are 54 new plants planned.

    Now I know China's is building newer technology, but the bothersome part of all this is the exposure to much more nuclear material commonly in one's life. They claim to know how to reprocess fuel, which I didn't read as that hasn't been much of a deal anywhere as of yet, but again, it entails some measure of exposure and spread of nuclear material in the common environment through mining, manufacture of fuel, and the dreaded devil of spent fuel. I'm not impressed, even if I do understand their bluster. The US fascist's (oh, sorry, capitalist's) little son has grown up, hasn't he? We'll see. Somehow I'm glad to be an old man. It's not George Jetson now, is it?

    Let's face it, folks – humanity's "goose is cooked", no matter what happens to the thousands of spent and unspent fuel rods in the SFPs in Fukushima! There are 3 100-ton molten reactor cores "on the loose" underground, contaminating all ground water in the aquifers which flows into the Pacific Ocean every day – ad infinitum. The coria CANNOT be retrieved or stopped from releasing massive quantities of becquerels, sieverts and curies of radioactivity (including deadly plutonium "hot particles") into the water, atmosphere and all living things, eventually encircling both hemispheres. We are all "On The Beach", wherever it is throughout the world, and, unfortunately, "There Is No More Time – Brother!" The physical experience (what we call "life") of all human spiritual beings will soon end and planet Earth will become an uninhabitable wasteland for thousands of years. Time to give some serious thought to spiritual matters and the hereafter!

    Comments appreciated. Please indulge my addition.

    On the contrary, FU is not the "biggest ticking time bomb." The timer to the ticking time bomb was initiated on December 2, 1942. Nuclear seeds of destruction were sown long ago, enabled by public indifference and government/corporate suppression of nuclear fission facts. FU is one of the historical pathologies in the time bomb’s countdown made visible due to its magnitude.

    The reality of the consequences of NP in the US is demonstrated:

    Superimpose the Location of NPPs and their trash plumes, in the US (and he world) with population densities by longitude and latitude. http://www.good.is/posts/mapping-the-world-s-population-by-latitude-longitude

    An indiscriminate baseline of nuclear carnage in the US predates 311.

    Yes, FU is very bad. But the theoretical migration of US population to avoid Fukushima nuclear fallout will not be from the American West to the East.

    If you find value in probability, then you will agree that on the contrary, based on predictive methods, the coming migration will be from the East to the West of the North American continent to avoid the next historic pathology.

    Keep doing your part to spread enlightenment, but do not forget the other equally toxic trash spewing machines still in operation.

    At this point, with three China Syndrome coria spewing unimaginable quantities of radioactive materials that can kill all life on this planet hundreds of times over and keep the planet sterile for at least 240 million years, and with no way for any power on earth to stop the on-going pollution, the Powers that Be are simply trying to prevent a mass freak-out from occurring. When 6 billion people realize that we are doomed and finished as a species, the ensuing chaos is not going to be pleasant, and TPTB no doubt wish to avoid a deserved public lynching by the general public.

      Good summary. Consider the possibility that TPTB are NOT a "power on earth" but of a reptilian ET origin and nature and THEY might have the technology to purify the planet after homo sapiens have been eliminated! Many signs make that possibility a probability – perhaps, with further research and uncovered evidence, a CERTAINTY! :O Check out the link to my blog, posted earlier, for more.

        OK, mind if I pick your brain? Assuming the visitors are real, this also like Fuku would be a great national security issue. The ability to come in and out of airspace free at will alone would qualify these visitors for a security classification. Also considered a threat to national security, any reverse engineered technology the visitors have would go to defense first. What signs are you speaking of when you insinuate a technology to purify the planet, and why would homo sapiens need to be eliminated to accomplish this instead of being used as a resource.

          You're missing a few important points/facts. Aliens have been coming here for eons (watch "ANCIENT ALIENS" on the History2 channel, etc.) and the hybrid, genetically re-engineered variety is thoroughly integrated into the human race at all levels of society, although most are concentrated in the national governments, their agencies and the MIC – especially DoD contractors. THEY are now in many decision-making positions in various public and private institutions. There are many more relevant and supporting facts but this is not the place to disclose them (off topic). Visit my blog (link posted earlier in this thread) and websites and you will learn a lot more!

          THEY are behind the nuclear power industry (Immelt at GE, for instance) as well as nuclear weapons proliferation and miniaturization (especially in Dimona). The ALIEN AGENDA has MANY dimensions, however, including sophisticated mass mind control techniques (mostly delivered through the MSM). The Aliens are also CONTROL FREAKS (Wm. Pawelec).

              Every truth stands on its own but you must assemble and connect many pieces (truths of various dimensions) of The Puzzle to make sense of it all and be able to SEE! the Big Picture (aka Forest). If the important pieces of The Puzzle have been correctly assembled, it will withstand all scientific investigation as well as spiritual analysis. The Puzzle then turns into a Revelation. Keep in mind that most evidence is circumstantial and logic/reasoning (like Occam's Razor) also play a big part in arriving at the correct solution to The Puzzle. Deception is of the Devil (the "Great Deceiver"). That's the Mossad motto!

                      God (Christ) is omniscient. He IS Truth (perfect knowledge – all-knowing). "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life". He endured pain when He was also a living human being. He is "the Way" for us to become like Him. "Christ in us – the hope of glory". There is no pain associated with knowledge but there is a lot of pain associated with human ignorance (of truth or reality – physical and spiritual).

                      Bliss implies a divine-like state of omniscience rather than ignorance. The ignorant cannot be truly blissful – it's an oxymoron. Denial of reality (present and future) may lead to a temporary and delusional state of false euphoria. Many people are in that condition (IN DENIAL about nuclear technology, deadly radiation from Fukushima, aliens, the police state encroaching on them, the evil in government, who really did 911, the threat of Zionism to their very existence, etc.)

When someone posts religion and alien stories practically in one sentence contributing nothing to the discussion rather moving the discussion away from the intelligent into the realm of the ridiculous I know as do most of you out there that we have another troll. Not wasting anymore time with you Corium123. Your trade is dishonorable.

                      You have not been reading my comments carefully – otherwise you would know that I am strongly anti-nuclear.

                      The topic here is the Fukushima disaster facing humanity. That topic has many dimensions because everything in this world is CONNECTED. Exposing the many and various connections to the WHAT, WHO, WHY, HOW, etc. of Fukushima is ON-TOPIC, even though some of those connections are some distance from the Corium. Now, if you're narrow-minded and suffer from tunnel-vision, that's not my problem – it's YOUR problem! Why not just ignore my comments if you don't "get" the connection to Fukushima?! Some folks here might appreciated having their minds expanded! ;)

                      If you're still upset, RELAX – I'm only here for a short visit. I just want to open some windows for those who care to look.

                    • Corium123, typical troll tact now argumentative. Aliens and religion belong in the off topic threads. But you knew that didn't you? Anne, Aftershock, Maxli, Obe, myself and no doubt many others read your comments and the consensus is you are a troll. We understand you perfectly as your intelligence is underwhelming. But hopefully you will be here for a short time.

    All-I admit, I too am fascinated by the possibility of alien visitation, but please try to keep it relevant to the original article.

    If not relevant, post to the off topic forums which frequently have meaningful dialog and participation.

    WNTF-agreed. All DNA based life as we know it is in peril by the ticking time bomb, and is not just limited to humans. The effects on organisms we can see and understand are heartbreaking and saddening.

    The mutagentic effects of radiation on the phytoplankton and millions of microorganisms we unwittingly rely on to exist is consequential. Consider our planet’s conversion of CO2 to O2, intestinal digestive flora, etc. Mutagenasis will have profound consequences to what we know as existence on this planet.

    In forest soil, the majority of tree roots are colonized by ectomycorrhizal fungi. The mycelia of the fungi grow outwards from the roots, and the fungal hyphae effectively colonize the soil and take up nutrients which are then transferred to the trees. Due to the symbiotic relationship of the fungas to the tree roots, the fungi have direct access to energy in the form of carbohydrates from the tree's photosynthesis. About 25 per cent of the energy that the tree binds in photosynthesis is allocated to the growth and soil activity of the ectomycorrizal fungi.

    The mutagentic affect of radiation on these microorganisms on which our ecosystems are dependent has not been researched.

    Consider what happens when there are forest fires, or the possibility of a world without trees.

    While biological organization is defined in the construct of the traditional hierarchy of complex biological structures, ecological organization is typically described with mammals and such being at the top of the food chain.

    This model ignores reality; microorganisms not only help the “higher” life forms proliferate, but also serve the dual purpose of biological predatation.

    Radioligically mutated organisms may either become beneficial or malignant. Either way, we are describing fission initiated DNA Russian roulette. While we tend to focus on the damage to human DNA, we often fail to consider the broader impact of mutagenesis, not just in the present time, but the equivalent of 20 human generations from the present.

    Peace.

    OBE-thank you for your prior thoughtful insights.

    I sincerely appreciate your previous offering of personal experience about your grandson and the provision of information to your local newspaper. (My thoughts are with you and your family)

    While there may be other venues for communication of this ELE, I would suggest one not commonly considered. Many municipalities offer an opportunity for citizens to eloquently wax (not wane) on the burning topic of their desire at the beginning or end of the council/legislative sessions.

    All it takes is signing up for testimony, and presenting 4-5 salient and thoughtful points about NP/Fukushima. In most jurisdictions sessions will get broadcast via local cable television to a broad local or regional audience.

    Its free. My advice would be to be calm and rational. Avoid theatrics and verbal escalation. Only present verifiable facts.

    Look at the water source for you municipality. Open air reservoirs present themselves entrees for discussion related to radiological contamination. This may not solve the problem, but is another low cost option for information dissemination to the general populace.

    Peace.

      Wyakin, Thank you for the advice and I have contacted those you reference and silence still prevails.

      For those here at enenews who understand the negative ramifications of using this Nuclear Technology we would actually be considered the 1% crowd out of billions of humans who are now clueless.

      This Nuclear Technology is a silent invisible killer on the loose and its now everywhere permeating everything around us… :(

      There sadly is no "safe harbor" left to be found anymore for the world's inhabitants… :(

      Mankind lacks wisdom and he chose his energy path very unwisely!

    These are all interesting conversations and will continue for a time, but I think that the fact and knowledge of 600-6,000 pounds of aerosolized Pu assures a logical conclusion.

    I will now return to my regularly scheduled programming.

    Thank you all!

    The only explainable reason that TEPCO is rushing to remove the fuel rods is that the plant is close to evacuation.

    There's a big show coming up.

    TEPCO in the beginning was using the condensors for storage of tradioactive water. So the amount of radioactive water in the turbine buildings is unknown. I don't have the numbers but for this HP turbine the condensor is large.

    All countries using nuclear energy have been guilty of exactly the same crimes against humanity.

    These countries risked extinction level events for a few decades of "cheap" electricity.

    Many of these same countries used the "peaceful atom" to justify use of spending trillions of dollars on weapons for offense/defense. Space has been weaponized, too.

    The future has always been bleak for almost seven decades with the Cold War Insanity of mutually-assured destruction. The risks were taken but the foreseen destruction of the planet will come about in a manner they did not foresee – through to peaceful proliferation.

    Off to the Hague will all of these evil people who participated in this evil misadventure. They have destroyed the planet over the opposition of those who opposed it such as Einstein and myself.

    At what stage may people begin theorizing that the nuclear industry is a conspiracy to wipe us all away?

    A few tens of thousands of nuclear weapons sitting in arsenals to be used to burn our world down. Now nuclear waste from only one nuke plant taking out our world, with over 400 more old dirty bomb power plants just waiting to melt down.

    Must America fund war in 74 nations? Who will tell the people of the genocide at work here?

    Velocity power, when understood, reveals free energy has been a proven technology for over 140 years. Can we not appreciate that nuclear technology was attached to our need for electricity and foisted on us through the war finance system?

    So here we are, facing the very real prospect of EXTINCTION of the human race – and governments in Japan and around the world, TEPCO, the MSM and the Nuclear Industry are IN DENIAL about the severity of our unthinkable predicament. Would a human "bankster" or corporate marauder, no matter how greedy and power-hungry, condemn his own family as well as all humanity to extinction? There are good reason to think that Fukushima was NOT AN ACCIDENT or ACT OF GOD – but a sinister and PLOT (Google "Jim Stone Fukushima"). Are there utterly EVIL and ALIEN Entities at work in DUMBS and in the midst of governments and humanity, totally without compassion and without a conscience – and hell-bent on the destruction of the human habitat and humanity itself? YES, there are! Google "William Pawelec" and "Phil Schneider" for a closer look.
