Fukushima reactor No. 4 vulnerable to catastrophic collapse...

(NaturalNews) The news you are about to read puts everything else in the category of "insignificant" by comparison. Concerned about the 2012 U.S. presidential election? Worried about GMOs? Fluoride? Vaccines? Secret prisons? None of that even matters if we don't solve the problem of Fukushima reactor No. 4, which is on the verge of a catastrophic failure that could unleash enough radiation to end human civilization on our planet. (See the numbers below.)

The resulting releasing of radiation would turn North America into a "dead zone" for humans... mutated (and failed) crops, radioactive groundwater, skyrocketing infant mortality, an explosion in cancer and infertility... this is what could be unleashed at any moment from an earthquake in Japan. Such an event could result in the release of 85 times the Cesium-137 released by the Chernobyl catastrophe, say experts (see below). And the Chernobyl catastrophe made its surrounding regions uninhabitable by humans for centuries.

Yet, astonishingly, the usual suspects of deception are saying absolutely nothing about this problem. The mainstream media (the dying dinosaur media, actually) pretends there's no problem with Fukushima. President Obama says nothing about it. Federal regulators, including the NRC, are all but silent. It's as if they think their silence on the issue somehow makes it go away.

Hey Mr. TEPCO: Your Reactor is Leaking (vid)

HEY MR TEPCO-YOUR REACTOR NR 1 IS STILL LEAKING SOMETHING-DON'T U KNW?

Assuming the world doesn't end

Assuming the world doesn't end (and I don't say that in a joking way), I have to reiterate that this is one of the few things I have my doubts about regarding Ron Paul. I know he's said that he supports nuclear energy. I know Peter Schiff has said stuff along the lines of (and I should say that I'm not 100% sure this is how he characterized it) "we need something. We're not going back to horse and buggy".

Between nuclear energy and hydrofracking, I have major concerns about our environment and I don't see how monetary damages are going to make the least bit of difference should the planet become unlivable.

You make a good point Kevin

There is so much going on that's placing our future in danger.

This report says only 10 X Cesium of Chernobyl in reactor #4.

This story doesn't make me feel any better. This disaster is beyond comprehension whether 10 X or 85 X Chernobyl Cesium release.

The Worst Yet to Come? Why Nuclear Experts Are Calling Fukushima a Ticking Time-Bomb
Experts say acknowledging the threat would call into question the safety of dozens of identically designed nuclear power plants in the U.S.
May 4, 2012
------
But nuclear waste experts say the Japanese are literally playing with fire in the way nuclear spent fuel continues to be stored onsite, especially in reactor 4, which contains the most irradiated fuel -- 10 times the deadly cesium-137 released during the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident. These experts also charge that the NRC is letting this threat fester because acknowledging it would call into question safety at dozens of identically designed nuclear power plants around the U.S., which contain exceedingly higher volumes of spent fuel in similar elevated pools outside of reinforced containment.

Reactor 4: The Most Imminent Threat

The spent fuel in the hobbled unit 4 at Fukushima Daiichi not only sits in an elevated pool outside the reactor core's reinforced containment, in a high-consequence earthquake zone adjacent to the ocean -- just as nearly all the spent fuel at the nuclear site is stored -- but it's also open to the elements because a hydrogen explosion blew off the roof during the early days of the accident and sent the building into a list.

Thanks Steve

Thanks for the article.

Damn, and they are worried about North Korea and Iran?

Good thing it is a felony to possess a gun in Japan.

We wouldn't want someone to have an accident and kill one person; yet they are about to KILL millions and billions of people.

The contradiction in priorities and political corruption for corporate profit is truly mind boggling.

I've been hearing about this

I've been hearing about this doomsday nuclear fallout for a year now.

Let me know when it ACTUALLY happens.

Of course, when my teeth start falling out I guess I'll know..

+ 1

Thanks lol.

But when our teeth start falling out the mainstream media will still not cover the story.

Yikes!

Very scary.

BUMP

Thanks for a bump

We need to 'Drudge it'...if say couple of dozen people sends this article to Drudge Report perhaps they will break the MSM blackout?
