Well it was reported today that reactor number two has had a meltdown. And what happens when reactor number three has a meltdown? It's radioactivity contains plutonium. What happens when reactor number four has a meltdown? A whistle-blower at that plant stated that he helped falsify information that the containment platform was made with faulty steel that was warped. It cannot contain the water they are trying to use to cool nuclear fuel rods.
Japanese officials admit the nuclear power complex must now be abandoned and entombed. The Dailymail published, "officials said it would mean switching off all power and abandoning attempts to keep the nuclear fuel rods cool." The problem with that, of course, is that there are already "three raging meltdowns" If you abandon efforts to cool the fuel rods, then an accelerated meltdown is "inevitable,"Japanese nuclear experts now admit it will require 20 years to decommission the Fukushima nuclear reactors.
If it goes to a full-scale evacuation of all personnel, it means that firefighters are no longer putting water onto the cores. That's the only thing preventing a full-scale meltdown at three reactor sites. Once they evacuate, then we past the point of no return. Meltdowns are inevitable at three reactor sites, leading to a tragedy far beyond that of Chernobyl
Also next to each of these reactors are thousands of spent fuel rods that are also radioactive. It was also reported today that at reactors throughout the United States we have over 63,000 TONS of spent fuel rods are being housed in structures that are in no way secure. Some are in what simply amounts to aluminum sheds such as a Sears utility shed. A whistle-blower in California is suing the operator of a reactor for firing him in retaliation for reporting safety violations. The whistle-blower in Japan admits the owners of the reactor paid him -1 million for his silence.
If the operators of nuclear power plants were forced to be responsible for all damages nuclear power plants would not be built. However the Nuclear Energy Institute has paid Congressmen to be in their corner and not the public's, $4.6 million since 2001, according to Maplight.org. One of those in its pocket is Mitch McConnell and the Congressman who has received the most is John McCain.
As long as we allow this type of influencing we will never be safe. As long as whistle-blowers are in fear of their livelihoods we will never be safe.
I would rather not find radioactivity in my milk. I would prefer to not find plutonium in my milk. I would never find solar power or wind power in my milk. I would never find an ocean in my milk.
