Grim News Out Of Fukushima, Japan On Verge Of Collapse

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A plethora of scientists and experts have chimed in recently on what is going on at the Fukushima Diachi plant that is heavily damaged and is on the verge of collapse.

- Ken Buesseler, Senior Scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution: The expectation is with the increased flow from the groundwater and some of those leaky tanks, the levels will now start increasing in some of those marine organisms that we’re sampling.

- Former head of U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Gregory Jaczko, says radioactive leaks from Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant mixed with ground water are impossible to control. What was unleashed was a force beyond human control. What you can do is try and mitigate that but you can’t really control it. You cannot control groundwater.”

- Professor Taisei Namura, Ph.D., National Institute of Biomedical Innovation (Under jurisdiction of Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, located in Osaka): Cancer doesn’t happen immediately. If you don’t recognize it and take action right now, you have no future. We must raise public awareness. We can’t rest assured just because it’s a small amount. The symptoms will not appear until decades later.

- Professor Eiji Makino, Hosei University (“One of the most traditional private universities based in Tokyo”): This tragedy has revealed that Japan’s political, social, economic, and moral standards are falling apart. I think we’re facing a big crisis. I want to stress one more time that Japan is on the verge of a collapse.
- Dean Wilkie, nuclear reactor operations, management, construction and plant engineering at a U.S. Department of Energy test reactor in Idaho: Some of these reactor vessels have had their fuel melt through the bottom of the vessel. We don’t know to what degree, they don’t either.
These guys are the experts, they know what they are talking about.  These aren’t some bearded loser conspiracy nut in the basement of his mom’s house saying such alarmist things, they are scientists.  This is the real deal people, take this seriously, especially those on the west coast of the US, anyone in the pacific and especially those around Japan and in Japan.  This disaster is a product of our greed and own ineptitude to see that we are destroying our home and our lives.  -Mort

      This nonsense about “you can’t control groundwater” has got to stop. To do construction, a water table can be lowered by pumping groundwater out with a series of small wells. It can then be pumped through a hose to an offshore barge that takes it to an offshore oil drilling platform where it is pumped into an old oil well that puts it five miles below the sea. There are solutions, and some of them are simple.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah, that’s the answer. Let’s just bury it. Out of sight, out of mind. And we can continue to build nukler plants and wait for the next Chernobyl or Fukushima. And then we can bury that problem as well.

        You are a bonehead.

        • TC

          Curses, prophecies, and insults will not solve this problem. There are only two choices : use engineering to stop the disaster or allow the planet to be poisoned. We cannot solve the world’s problems, but we can solve this one, one issue at a time. If you cut your finger, I will suggest a band-aid. Whether you suffer from other physical or mental challenges does not affect the health of your finger. Look, the figures reported now are that about 300 – 400 tons of radiocative water need to be disposed of every day, maybe twice that. Why can’t we solve that issue as discussed. We know the structure of reactor 4 is very unstable. Why can’t it be encased in cellular concrete so that it cannot collapse in an earthquake. Again, there are simple solutions and they MUST be applied or this disaster will continue.

        They already have more water than they can pump and contain.

        • King of Shambhala

          Did you see the video that said TEPCO needs 600 tons every minute ro cool the reactiors, greenghost?

          That means they need x 60 minutes x 24 hours = 864 000 tons of water every day.

          They can’t store that water.

          You could be more effective as a troll, if you were more intelligent and more subtle. Why do you have a happy face when saying that the ‘radiation’ (which doesn’t exist at Fukushima) will kill people and they can’t protect against it? You see? It’s called O-B-V-I-O-U-S, duh!

          That along with your not-so-subtle name (connotations of Jewish Pedophile Knights Templar) give you away, troll.

        If you encase it in concrete will the concrete liquefy or “melt”?

        • Templar

          YES! Cause at this point it’s too much for it!

      • Chief

        No, Fukushima did not even happen. Sure, there was a tsunami, but no radiation release. If there had been a radiation release, there would have been a study in the last 2.5 years documenting increased incidence of cancers and congenital malformations. Japan is a leading medical and research center, but there has been no such publication in all this time.

        Therefore, FUKUSHIMA IS A MEDIA-ONLY EVENT which is being used to support One World Government, along with a bunch of other media-only events.

        • LifeIs

          Some of the research is discussed in my post below, with links.

      • Chief

        Well said, and this would be pertinent, if there had been a radiation release at Fukushima, but there wasn’t (see my comment below).

      • Fr.Duffy Fighting 69th

        Wake up, fool. The groundwater issue is one of at least a half a dozen potentially disastrous scenarios. The fuel rods still have to be dealt with, and there are hundreds of them. AND they have NO plan to deal with how to move, store or cool them. This is shaping up to be the worst man-made disaster in human history. So take your head out of your ass, and start praying.

        • Neanderthal

          I think its past the point of taking ones head out of his or her ass and praying is not going to resolve this either. Call Al Gore, he has all the answer to Mother Nature and its creation, Heck lets do the carbon tax, and after that a radiation tax cuase carbon will not matter when you get cooked by radiation but you know if we tax it we can fix it.

    • King of Shambhala

      I’d say Fukushima is one or several combined horsemen of the Apocalypse.

      If one of the fuel rods explodes then Japan and most of China will be contaminated at Hiroshima levels from what I understand.

      They say TEPCO’s not competent enough to extract the fuel rods.

      • JustAComment

        The seals of Revelation 5 have not been opened by Jesus Christ to bring in the tribulation, yet, the four horsemen of Revelation 6 not Fukushima. Please read the scripture, the rider of the white horse a man, conquering, this the antichrist allowed to enter the scene, by all scriptural harmony. He first comes in by peace, this fake savior on a white horse, cons the world, but war follows, what follows war, with its societal breakdown and chaos, famine and pestilence, death.

        So the three horsemen following the rider on the white horse, at the very least, perfectly represent what is the progression of war, its effects.

        • Templar

          WELL WELL LOOK WHO IS BLIND! The horsemen CAN BE SUMMONED by the able priest of God! YOU DO NOT NEED SCRIPTURE TO SEND THEM! So blind you are friend! :cry:

      • JustAComment

        The early tribulation four horsemen of Revelation also perfectly coincide with the description of a warring world the Lord Jesus gave us in Matthew, phony Christs (one especially phony!), wars, with the accompanying famine and pestilence that go hand in glove with war, but the most horrendous sorrows to follow are the judgments of God against unrepentant mankind of Revelation:

        Matthew 24

        4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
        5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
        6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
        7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
        8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

      • Templar


        So you are right and they are going to kill japan right now! Won’t be long now!

    • greenghost

      What probably happened is the fuel melted its way all the way through containment and down until it hit the water table where it will continue to spew radioactive death for the next 10,000 years. But thats not even the bad part. The bad part is it will be 1000 times worse when the spent fuel pools collapse during the next earthquake/tsunami that is bound to hit sooner or later.

      • King of Shambhala

        I’m no pro but as an interested reader, I understood that two explosions could occur, greenghost.

        If the molten core hits the groundwater under the plant it’ll explode and blow up the whole Fukushima’s four plants.

        If they extract the fuel rods and two rods collide, the whole fuel-lot will explode, that’s what I heard from articles.

      • Templar

        THEY WILL THEN KABOOOOOOOOOOOM! That’s what will happen cause I saw that vid of the plastic bottle. :twisted:

        • King of Shambhala

          2/3 of the world will be killed says the Bible?

          That’s a lot.


    • JustAComment

      This is from a CNBC article that briefly related the worse-case scenario:

      “You have 100,000 cubic meters in basements that have never been designed to deal with this water. The big danger – and it was identified by Japan’s atomic energy commission – is if you lose water in one of the spent fuel pools and you get a spent fuel fire. This would lead to respiratory contamination.”

      This would be a worse-case scenario and could lead to the mass evacuation of 10 million people in the Tokyo region, which is 150 miles to the south of the Fukushima plant, Schneider warned.


      When one considers the rise in major earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, signs in the heavens, painful Matthew 24 events in the world becoming more frequent, like birth pangs (NASB Matt. 24:8), and then consider the apocalypse, do you suppose God is allowing a foreshadow of what is coming upon the world, is giving us some clear warnings? Such as Fukushima a harbinger of Wormwood, poisoned waters, or such as the many animal die-offs being reported?

      Revelation 8

      6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
      7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
      8 And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
      9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
      10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
      11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
      12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
      13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

      Matthew 24 short list of signs of the end days:

      •Wars and rumors of wars
      •World wars
      •Earthquakes in diverse places
      •Fearful sights and great signs in the heavens
      •False prophets

      Daniel 12:4 – Increase in knowledge and travel
      – This will support globalization.

      Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11 – Famines and pestilences
      – Due to increase in natural disasters and war.

      Revelation 11:9 – Satellite technology
      – People from all over the world will be able to view the two dead witnesses.

      Revelation 13:16-17 – Computer technology
      – The mark of the beast will be a cashless society.

      Revelation 13:16-17 – Global currency
      – All other currencies will crumble.

      2 Timothy 3:1-8 – Rampant immorality and hedonism
      – Increase in selfishness and resistance to absolute truth.

      1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

      Matthew 24:37-39 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

      Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

      • King of Shambhala

        The Apocalypse could be TEPCO dropping one of the fuel rods and it blows up Fukushima to the tune of 14 000 times Hiroshima.

        It would make two thirds of the world be radiated.

        That would be the Apocalypse and the first exracting of rods starts in less than two months now.

    • Agent Orange

      Thanks for more bad news Mort! But, unfortunately, any claims ‘we can engineer our way out of this mess’ are fiction. The Ukraine is faced with replacing the encasement at Chernobyl, something they have neither the funds nor resources for. Fukushima is infinitely worse. For those of us on the Pacific rim, we face an impossible exodus from the North, which will overwhelm our infrastructure and health systems. The Japanese government is faced with an impossible choice, forced on them by WW2. No one in Asia wants them – certainly not the 40 million they’re considering evacuating. Nor will engineering and technology save the day, for them, or ultimately, us. That greed and stupidy have largely caused this mess, and denial has made it worse, we, as a planet, need to get the Japanese to accept the reality of their, and our situation.

      • ElOregonian

        The problem has been, and will continue to be until the end (which BTW, is so much sooner than later) is that these poorly designed Reactors, which mirror these ones all across the globe, is General Electric. The CEO of GE is Jeffry Emelt. Mr. Emelt sits on the presidential panel as his jobs czar.

        This is why NOTHING is being done! If Obama acknowledges the sins of TEPCO, he’d be forced to acknowledge GE’s design flaws that were made during their construction in the 60′s, exposing GE to Billions, and Billions of fees, fines, penalties, and countless lawsuits, which would most assuredly bankrupt GE. And since Emelt is Barry’s puppetmaster, nothing will become of the Millions, upon Millions of lives, land, and atmosphere that will be destroyed for the next Tens of Thousands of years, if not forever.

        All I can say is Repent. Make peace with God, and your fellow men and women, fall to your knees and Pray for us all, and for you and yours.

    • KnowMoreThanYou

      Something tells me Obozo should be invading Japan and taking care of the problem rather than trying to take over Syria and the rest of the middle east wasting money and time..How can it be that nobody seems to care about this situation? I talk to people everyday for the last 2 years about it but no one really even cares. Since yo cannot see or smell the problem and the effects are coming later down the road no one “believes” it or cares about it…Makes a good point that maybe “they” know something bigger is coming and they will run off to their bunkers. Maybe the grids going down or a heck of a lot of other nuclear disasters on the horizon? It cannot be that no main stream media or anybody seems to be concerned about this..Totally crazy

      A rabbit farts and people on this site proclaim the beginning of the Apocalypse. This is a controlable situation.Just because some left wing tree kissing nut job from a Japanese University says the sky is falling don’t make it so.It’s bad. But not world ending bad.

    • Agent Orange

      Hi Power….I’m no bunny kissing tree hugger. I have read the resticted manuals on nuclear warfare. And that was 40 years ago! The TEPCO units are many times more efficient killers than the ones I read about. TEPCO and the Japanese Government have lied from day one. The situation in the North Pacific islands is so dire they are currently planning a mass evacuation. The Japanese Government has planned to evacuate up to 40 million from Honshu… to where, who knows? This, is an extinction event, and we need the Japanese Government to give an honest appraisal of the entire risk, plus their computer modelling which has been carried out to date. It would help if the CIA released there’s as a comparison data set.
      Hi-Power, my recommendation would be to get yourself an self injectable atrepine syringe (like the one that came with my battle jacket), it will help remove the subcutaneous burning caused by the contamination, well until they inject you with a fatal dose of morphine…. if your lucky.

    • LifeIs

      The HUNDREDS OF TONS of reactor fuel are still fissioning, as evidenced by the continued production of Iodine 131, found around the world, notably in Korea and in France. And by the continued production of Cesium 137, which maintains ocean levels 10,000 times above
      pre-accident levels. Levels are not diminishing.

      The iodine is airborne, it has a half life of 8 days. It is cooking out of the corium underground
      and is rising with the steam. The ground water and rain water at the site are highly radioactive
      and they flow into the sea. If anybody could stop that, they’d have done it already.

      Being near the reactors is fatal in minutes. Nobody knows exactly, because the radiation detectors are maxed out at a level that would kill 100% of those who receive 1 hour of exposure.

      The next link discusses the first published study of Fukushima deaths in the US in 2011:–14000-us-deaths-tied-to-fukushima-reactor-disaster-fallout-135859288.html

      This discusses the overall mortality increase since Fukushima:

      There was a 35% increase in infant mortality in 8 northwestern US cities in the 10 weeks following the meltdowns. (CDC numbers reported by Sherman and Mangano) This should have been expected, given the levels of radioactive contamination, and knowing that an increase in infant mortality occurred in the Soviet Union and Europe right after Chernobyl in 1986.

      This discusses the sailors from the aircraft carrier Reagan, which had to be extensively decontaminated after Fukushima fallout exposure:

      It IS a world ending event for hundreds of millions of us at least. Chernobyl has killed one million so far, and Fukushima is much, much worse.

      43 comments and only a small hand full are worth a read.

      You have a real disaster cascading into what could become a catastrophic biospheric failure for several lifetimes and all most of you can do is natter as mindlessly as angry first graders at one another. You’re pitiful

      Pumping the ground water out seems viable but what then? At least pumping it out might save billions of people from literally dieing from drinking contaminated water but storing the water creates its own set of deadly problems too. I don’t know enough about the nuclear industry to have a clear answer. I have only questions and concerns that this issue is dealt with Now.

    • Anonymous

      Yes this can be controlled, and in many ways. The government of JAPAN needs to stop screwing around and deal with the situation, A fast first line defense would be to go ahead and freeze the ground into an ice barrier, then as a another poster spoke of, use a series of wells to pump the ground water that is contaminated out of these wells to tankers and deposit it deep in the earth in an old oil well that dried up, after they are done, they can permanently cap it.They need to get the crane built to begin removing the control rods and packaging them up in neutron absorbing materials to prevent uncontrolled fission, and either running them through a fsast fission reactor to eliminate them, or find a place to entomb them safely.
