(San Francisco) - The Japanese nuclear reactor killing Earthquake March 11, 2011 had the Energy of a 1,000,000 Kiloton Nuclear Weapon. The earthquake measured 9.0 on the Richter Scale. The two Atomic Bombs that vaporized much of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan "only" totaled about 32 kilotons. The deadly 9.0 earthquake was the energy equivalent of 31,250 combined Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bombs.
Famous former Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab physicist Marion Fulk announced the startling finding today in San Francisco.
The largest Hydrogen Bomb ever detonated by the United States was a Nuclear Weapons Lab 15 Megaton blast in the South Pacific's Marshall Islands on March 1, 1954. The Russians later topped that during the Super Powers' Arms Race.
Former Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab director Ed Teller is generally regarded as the model for the 1964 movie "Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" starring Peter Sellers. The darkly pessimistic hit movie portrayed the lead up of a nuclear exchange that would destroy humanity.
Thousands of nuclear weapons remain on "hair trigger alert" status ready for the Dooms Day nuclear War of the future. Japan's index of its future population level, or Total Fertility Rate (TFR) has steadily declined since the Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6th and 9th, 1945, respectively.
The Japanese TFR is now 1.21, according to the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA.) Knowledgeable observers view a TFR level below 1.3 with considerable alarm since the population is unlikely to ever recover. The replacement level is 2.1 for any nation's Total Fertility Rate.
The substantial amount of highly radioactive uranium is deadly to the reproductive capacity of men and women. Plutonium and some 1,400 other radioactive isotopes are created by nuclear bombs and nuclear reactors. The pregnancy ending radioactive isotopes are spreading throughout Japan and the world now from the destroyed reactors.
Ironically, nuclear reactors leak radiation normally when operated by the book. Destruction of a reactor releases very large amounts of Sperm killing radiation. European physicists, who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue, state that Billions of deadly radioactive doses were in the four destroyed General Electric reactors.
However, only a small portion of any reactor's heat is turned into electricity. That is why so many nuclear reactors are crowded around oceans, rivers and other large bodies of water. A typical large reactor uses a billion gallons of water a day for cooling.
The 9.0 Richter level earthquake, associated tsunami and related damage or destruction of at least four, possibly six and potentially twelve nuclear reactors will affect Japan's, and the world's, Total Fertility Rate and cause it to plummet once again. The nuclear extinction process for Japan has been long and arduous. Recovery of fertility in the population remains very much in doubt.
