Fukushima Is Falling Apart!.. Are You Ready For Mass Extinction?
More about Fukushima Daiichi’s Spent Fuel Pools:
Mainichi Expert Sr. Writer: Gov't sources say No. 4 pool a grave concern -- Storage pool barely intact -- We have no time to humor senseless thinking of those who downplay the risks
Asahi TV: "Unbelievable" -- If Unit 4 pool gets a crack from quake and leaks, it would be end for Tokyo -Expert -- Doesn't have to be large tremor, already shaken many times (VIDEO)
WATCH: Japan lawmakers warned about Spent Fuel Pool No. 4 during testimony of former ambassador (VIDEOS)
Gundersen: No. 3 fuel pool worse off than No. 4 -- Mechanically it's rubble, the pool is rubble -- Nobody has even gotten near it yet (VIDEO)
NYT on Reactor No. 4: "Risk of another colossal radiation leak" if cooling problems arise, experts say -- "Tepco has been racing to fortify crumpled outer shell"
Wyden’s letter to US Ambassador to Japan Ichiro Fujisaki
If they are MOX fuel, containing 6% plutonium, one fuel rod has the potential to kill 2.89 billion people. If this pool collapses, as Senator Wyden is now saying too, we would face a mass extinction event from the release of radiation in those rods.
That is, if we aren’t in one already. Nuke experts like Arnie Gundersen and Helen Caldicott are prepared to evacuate their families to the southern hemisphere if that happens. It is that serious.
So now you know, if you didn’t before. We are in big trouble.
