Its not Nuclear Power thats the problem its that its war hungry 60 year old Nuclear Technology.

and even back then they had a much better solution
LFTR Clean + a much cheaper Catalyst:

Way more abundant and safe Then Uranium it can power the world and clean 99% of the nuclear waste we have accumulated in the process of giving us power

No offense to wind and solar, But if you do the math you will see its a nice addition to ,But not a solution to a very power hungry Race in a massive population Explosion on a very weak planet.

to survive we need to cover ground very fast
LFTR is the only viable solution

Where on the planet can these people be found? So far, the count is ZERO.


Not true, the experts have been arranged from all over the world already. The problem is, if radiation is too high, nobody is considering human intervention, simply because it means suicide. As it stands, radiation is extremely high in and around Reactor 3.
What they constantly need to be doing is constructing new robots, each one for a custom task. The japanese are good at that, but only if their living conditions are in order, which is everything but the case around Fukushima Daiichi.

I am totally dumb founded that some out there still are pro nuclear !
We are looking at the possibility of a long and short term wipe out of most of the people on this planet.
Who will survive ? Those that can leave when it becomes time to do so ........those that are behind it all.... those in control of you and I.
I have not met most of you reading this blog, I hope you have a good afterlife.


Yo u are a moron!!!!!

" In this photo released by Kyodo November 6, 2013. " deliberately leads people to believe that everything is fine! While the photo may have been released on Nov. 6, 2013 there is serious doubt that this is actually the situation and condition of the cranes on this date. It is most likely a stock photo from long before 2011.

Dont expect anything but lip service from the obama collective. They want their power as much as Japan clings to its pride. I sincerely hope they all get what they deserve.

WTF! How can these incompetent fools be left to experiment with the fate of this planet at stake! Where are the power hungry savior watchdogs that are always poking their nose into other countries business when it really matters! The U.S are a f'ing joke on a global scale! BLAH! Get in there with some people who know what they are doing!

This is going to be tough times. theres 3 melted cores there, nothing they can do with them. Man has not technology to deal with this. They have probably burned into the eath a year ago. The numbers they give are pretty low, and they have been continually releasing since the accident. Now is not the time for deciet.

Since 10/25 there hasnt been any twitter or facebook posting from the Japanese social network. Like the goverment cut off what they couldnt control.

I read that the sun is changing the supposedly constant rates of radioactive decay. I hope it is true and makes these reactors become quickly useless! Have a google for 'The Sun is changing the constant rates of decay of radioactive elements' and see for yourselves.
I also read among the scientific journals that the atomic weights have changed. Google that as well.

Hugs to all

Just a point that came to me on reflection of the news item.
I am guessing that there are MANY readers of this site that do precision work on a daily basis and do it well.
Do you, have faith that TEPCO or any other team can pull this off without any hitch ?
If you do, please say so and make us all believe there is nothing to worry about.
