I'm 61 years old and I hereby volunteer to work in the high-radiation area at the Daiichi nuclear plant in Fukushima; (If I go, someone needs to step-up and assist my Sister and her two children who depend on me financially until she receives her SSI.) I'm betting that there are thousands of other grandparents who have lived a full life that would do the same right here in the United States. Protecting our families from this potential disaster must be our number one priority for the moment, and if the Japanese won't get in there and do something immediately, the Global Community must show some guts and do it themselves!

If you don't believe that your life and family could be in danger, read this:

Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity. About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 -- roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-Daichi site contains nearly half of the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel).


A recent quote in the Japan Times says it all, from Hiroshi Tasaka, who has a doctorate in nuclear engineering and is now a professor at Tama University, "The biggest risk during the meltdown crisis wasn't the reactors themselves but the spent fuel pools sitting atop them, particularly the one above reactor 4, which still contains about 1,500 nuclear fuel assemblies;" "I would say the crisis just opened Pandora's box". (My emphasis) LINK

I'm dead serious (no pun intended) in regard volunteering to go to Japan and work in that area. It's also my belief that thousands of other Americans who have already lived a full life would do the same for their families without any hesitation whatsoever if they were allowed to do so. With the recent Earthquake Activity everyone has witnessed, this is a disaster waiting to happen, and we must demand that it be addressed IMMEDIATELY!

Excuse me, but I have to quit writing. I'm so angry right now I can barely type.
