The Nuclear Reactor in Northern Japan is Near Full Scale Meltdown!
The news from Japan keeps getting worse; so far it has been estimated that there are over ten thousand dead, and over ten thousand people missing. Several towns and cities have been completely wiped off the map, while the #3 economy in the world has plunged into its worst level since WWII. The downward spiral of the Japanese economy will probably send the global economy into deepening recession. Meanwhile, there is a potential nuclear catastrophe brewing that would make the economic worries seem minute.
Two more explosions were reported at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant this morning, releasing even more radioactive particles into the atmosphere. Experts claim that the levels of radiation are safe, but as far away as Tokyo, people have been instructed to stay indoors and seal off their houses as much as they can. There have been 4 explosions now at this plant since the 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck late last week.
Meanwhile the cooling pool at the #4 reactor has been reported to be boiling, sending radioactive steam into the atmosphere. This cooling pool is what keeps the nuclear fuel rods from overheating, and if all that water evaporates, the rods will be exposed and enter into a critical meltdown stage. Experts claim that while the crisis is worse than the 1979 incident at Three Mile Island, so far it is nowhere near the level of Chernobyl. How comforting.
The potential meltdown at this plant is not only affecting Japan, the claimed small amount of radiation that has been released so far is 4 times the normal amounts that already exist. This high amount of radiation will cause long term effects including bone cancer and leukemia, as well as birth defects in fetuses. Here’s the kicker; this will not only occur in Japan, this will happen around the globe! Radioactive particles have already entered the wind patterns that blow east across the Pacific; I would bet that radiation levels are already climbing around the Pacific Rim, including the West coasts of North, Central, and South America. If that plant blows, I’m betting we’re all fucked. It may not affect everyone immediately, but most certainly long term exposure to the fall out is going to have severe ramifications across the world.
I pray that the technicians left behind at Fukushima Daiichi can miraculously get this catastrophe under control; not just for Japan’s safety, but for the safety of the entire planet. Yes, it could be that serious. If you believe in god, pray. If you don’t believe in god, keep the people of Japan in your heart, and send all your available positive energy to the brave workers left at the plant who are trying to get this meltdown under control. They need it, we all need it.
Here’s the crux of the matter; the earth is a living, breathing creature just like us. What we’re doing to it is putting it in a dangerous position. While the earthquake may not be a direct effect from the abuse that we are heaping upon our Mother Earth, it is a sign that our planet has begun to fight back in an attempt to restore balance. I hope I’m wrong, but the mass extinction that we are trying so hard to achieve in the name of capitalism may be here earlier than predicted. Its catalyst is sitting in Northern Japan, and could trigger such an extinction. Fasten your seat belts; we’re in for a bumpy ride.
