Do you remember that little nuclear plant accident they had over in Japan a couple years ago? Seems the problem is going from bad to outright terrifying. The plant is still simmering away leaking gallons and gallons of radioactive water into the nearby ocean, (do you know where your tuna for your tuna sandwich is coming from?). Within the next two months, Japanese technicians will begin attempting to remove the 1,300 spent fuel rods from the damaged facility. If one of the rods breaks an accident of unprecedented proportions will ensue causing untold amounts of radiation to be spewed into the air and water.
Bible prophecy warns of an event to occur during the Tribulation which describes a flaming mountain falling into the ocean causing a third of the ocean life to be killed. Might John the Revelator have been describing a worst case scenario Fukushima like nuclear catastrophe?
The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. Revelation 8:9 NIV
Fukushima disaster reaches epic proportions
Consuming cesium-tainted fish is probably about to be one of your least concerns. Most of us were already aware of the generalities ofhttp://www.nationofchange.org/fukushima-disaster-reaches-epic-proportions-1380203534
Fukushima’s defunct nuclear
reactor seeping tons of toxic and radioactive iodone, cesium, and strontium-89
and 90 into the Pacific Ocean. We perhaps said
a prayer and vowed to start consuming fish from other oceans. Now, there is
news of Fukushima’s
damaged Unit 4 pool, that a Yale professor warns “is in perilous
danger and could threaten all of humanity for thousands of years.”
Humankind’s Most Dangerous Moment: Fukushima Fuel Pool at Unit 4. “This is an Issue of Human Survival.”
We are now within two months of what may be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis. There is no excuse for not acting. All the resources our species can muster must be focused on the fuel pool at Fukushima Unit 4.
owner, Tokyo Electric (Tepco), says that within as few as 60 days it may begin
trying to remove more than 1300 spent fuel rods from a badly damaged pool
perched 100 feet in the air. The pool rests on a badly damaged building that is
tilting, sinking and could easily come down in the next earthquake, if not on
its own. Some 400 tons of fuel in that pool could spew out more than 15,000
times as much radiation as was released at Hiroshima.
Risky Repair of
Could Spill 15,000 Times the Radiation of Hiroshima,
Create 85 Chernobyls
This is the problem today. There are about 1300 fuel rods stored in that room, packed together vertically in racks. Think of a pack of cigarettes standing upright with the top of the pack removed. Normally, the movement of fuel rods is done by a computer-driven machine that reaches into the room from above and removes or replaces a fuel rod by drawing it upward or lowering it downward. The machine knows to the millimeter where each fuel rod is located. Also, the rods are undamaged — perfectly straight. The problem is that this pack of cigarettes is crumpled, and the process must done manually. Therefore, the likelihood that some of the fuel rods will break is high. If that happens and fuel rods are exposed to the air — BOOM.
If the whole site blows, “boom” could mean the release of 85 times as much radioactive cesium into the air as was released at
Chernobyl. Into the air.
Into a stiff cross-Pacific breeze.
This is the heart of today’s problem. In reality, the events that are about to unfold at
in the next 60 days will affect much of the world. They could in fact change
life in the northern hemisphere, if the worst of the worst occurs. Fukushima
