Fukushima: A Nuclear Catastrophe of Epic Proportions

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous and frightening events

We posted a blog entry a few days back regarding the ever growing frightening situation that is the Fukushima nuclear disaster.  Here today are a sampling more of the news reports pouring forth regarding the Fukushima situation.  A situation that is not getting any better, and in fact continues to worsen.  If this is not  perilous situation, we don't know what is.  Should this catastrophe explode into a worst case scenario, (as many are worried it will), then the Fukushima disaster will be of 'epic proportion', as one of the articles suggests, and will do much damage to the global eco-system.

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV
 Fukushima: A Nuclear Catastrophe of Epic Proportions
Never before in the modern era has humankind been confronted with a nuclear disaster the likes of Fukushima. Truly, Japan has become the location of the greatest nuclear catastrophe in history, one that has defied countless attempts to resolve it. Although it was once imagined to occur in China on the silver screen, Japan has experienced the actual “China Syndrome” – an apocalyptic nuclear meltdown(s). Once again, Japan is the site of an unparalleled atomic event whose aftermath has no end in sight.

Another day, another leak: One more Fukushima cooling tank pollutes Pacific
Another cooling tank has sprung a leak at Japan’s troubled Fukushima nuclear power plant. As in previous instances, the highly radioactive water is thought to be seeping directly into the Pacific Ocean. This is the second such incident in two months. Although the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has promised more accountability following a series of blunders in recent months, it has become clear to Japan’s government that the plant operator simply cannot deal with the problem on its own, forcing them to step in last month and start contributing funds.  The newest leak amounts to about 430 liters of radioactive water spilling in a period of 12 hours. That water contained 200,000 becquerels per liter of Strontium 90 and other harmful beta-emitting isotopes. That is tens of thousands of times more than the legal 30-becquerel limit. 

Fukushima Could be 15,000x Worse than Hiroshima with Removal of Fuel Rods
A Yale Professor is compelling the world to wake up from its nuclear slumber and face some cold-hard facts, “All of humanity will be threatened for thousands of years” if the Fukushima Unit 4 pool can’t be kept cool. Your worries about eating cesium-contaminated fish from the Pacific Ocean are grounded in fact, but this is a world-wide disaster of the most epic proportions just waiting to happen. If nothing else, it points to the necessity of nuclear-free power to fuel the planet, but in the meantime, more than 1,535 fuel rods must be meticulously removed from Unit 4, which in all likelihood is crumbling.
