Planning required : what country would take in 10million or so evacuee s from Japan ? And who would make available 1/2 trillion dollars to help them plus another 1/2 trillion to contain the site ??

TEPCO must be taken off the job immediately.

The one thing TEPCO can do, remove all the fuel rods in the common pool 50 meters from Unit No. 4 if they can they should be dry casked and removed away from Fukushima altogether. Then less fuel would be released in a critical event. The French nuclear expert, too, has said the fuel pool is in the wrong place. TEPCO doesn't think strategically, the Japanese government is IMO facist and fatalistic. Same goes for the rest of the world's governments.

A government warning would cause widespread panic and market collapse in this country and around the world. When it blows, martial law could be declared.

removal of the spent fuel in unit's 4 pool (schedueled to start november) is expected to last 4 years (if all goes well)
BUT..
According to JMA there is a 70% chance of an 8,5+ in the area for the next year and a 98% chance for the next 3 years.. not to mention the overdue 8,5+ tokai quake a little further away..
the only relevant question to ask here would be: How much of that hot mox spent fuel is still going to be in that pool when it goes down..

33 of 50 Bluefin Tuna Off California Coast Radioactive from Tokyo Electric
October 3, 2013 Intellihub News
CALIFORNIA — 33 of 50 Bluefin Tuna off the coast have been contaminated with radioactive Cesium 134, possibly from the previously decimated Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant which lies on the East coast of Japan reported NHK World.
According to the report, the radiation is accumulative, and the fact that Tuna is at the top of the food chain is even more concerning. According to the report “juvenile” tuna migrate from the waters of Japan over a 4 month period yearly.

HAARP at it again. Use the dollar not the yen or you will suffer.

This is another HAARP attack from the war monger US

Sadly Kim, you are correct. It will soon get to that point.>>>&g t;

It's the most frightening and serious problem the world faces right now. I am literally scared to death of this. I live near the Oregon coast (70 miles from ocean) . Some 20 plus children got very sick all at once at outdoor camp last week near the ocean. They displayed some classic signs of radiation poisoning. The state is investigating. Who knows anymore,

Building a reactor in one of the most earthquake prone places on the planet does not show a lot of intelligence. No wonder those same people are clueless now as to what to do. Maybe they are hoping Godzilla will come to their rescue.

This is not going to turn out well. At this point, I don't see how an open-air fission event will be avoided. Pray to your gods for help.

Mohamed cant fly airplanes, he crashes.

Your comment Mohammed, is beyond laughable. Good Luck with that way, of thinking.

All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds.
