The situation in Fukushima continues to deteriorate with wide spread reports that the pools of spent fuel rods are catching on fire and about to topple off their precarious perches above the molten remains of the reactor cores. It should come as no surprise that after 13 months of continuous exposure to the heat and radiation from the exposed reactor cores the building that surround them are nearly completely destroyed. The pools that contain the hundreds of tonnes of spent fuel rods are collapsing and it is becoming very difficult to keep them covered in water if at all.
The result is that we are now facing an even greater threat than the continuously emitting Toxic Cloud of Death. We are now facing the very real possibility that the whole facility will simply catch on fire and spew forth the greatest poisonous cloud that we have ever witnessed. It is literally a race against time as the Japanese seek to stabilise the walls holding up the pools of spent fuel rods and stop them from tumbling into the molten reactor cores which they are located directly above.
Of course the mainstream press is barely reporting the issue as they do not fully understand the consequences. As we know the Fukushima Facility has already emitted enough Toxic Radiation to cover the entire globe. What they are not saying is that the fuel rods are so plentiful that should the pools that are holding them completely collapse it will result in almost 100 times the amount of radioactive fallout that we have already been exposed to over the course of the past 13 months. In Cesium alone Fukushima currently stores more than half of all the cesium that has been distributed through the globe by all the previous nuclear bombs and nuclear disasters combined. Let alone all the 5000+ other radionuclides that will be emitted if the whole facility catches on fire. Including but not limited to Plutonium and Strontium among other nasties most of which have not been seen since the Earth was formed over 3 billion years ago.
Recent studies have found a significant increase in radioactive Iodine in kelp located on the western coast of the USA. It is plainly obvious to anyone who has been following the course of the disaster that the tip of the iceberg has just been reached and that we will see a lot worse over the coming years as the truth about the ongoing affects makes it’s way to the news stream.
The issue now appears to be what to do with 35 million Japanese who will need to be relocated from Tokyo to other countries. Even if the biggest 1000 cities of the world absorbed that many people it would represent 35,000 people for each city. Given that most of them will be subject to the ongoing health and psychological affects of radiation exposure we can foresee that the health services will be overwhelmed by the increase in cancer cases. The logical conclusion is that most people will simply stay in Japan and take their chances. Given that they have a very slim chance of evolving the ability to withstand extreme radiation exposure it seems a foregone conclusion now that a great many Japanese people are going to perish in this decade. Let alone what it is going to do for the rest of the worlds population.
