‘Serious’: Japan hikes Fukushima radiation danger level

21.08.2013 03:28

Japan will drastically raise the gravity of the latest Fukushima leak to Level Three, which is considered a “serious radiation incident” on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES) for radiological releases.

Time for the Lords Prayer everyday.

Should never build a nuclear plant on a fault line. Never never. I don't care how good the safety systems for the plant are, it is just stupid. It would have been worse had they not gotten on top of the disaster right away.

I think nuclear is okay, just not on fault lines.

They call this clean energy and funny they think someone needs to sneak a nuke in to kill American all they need to do is bomb one of are nuke power plants what would have happen if they flew a plane into mile island and not the towers ? We have solar power now i think we sould mass perduse solar pannels wire homes and buisnesses now. lay off the killer nukses so called clean energy!

Evil cannot rebuild anything so peoples of the world will unite on the opposite side on a common purpose level. Things were already bad before Fukushima.

World will be cleansed. Human creativity holds the potential to invent new technologies to remedy this kind of pollution. Huge strides will be made to do this.

HAARP did this and we will be playing them all soon as the elite hits the bunkers !!

Segun Benjamin Fulford, el terremoto y tsunami fue provocado intencionalmente, por los sionistas Benjamin Netanyahu y camarillas.
bomba atomica en lecho marino provoco devastador terremoto frente a la costa cerca de fukushima.
con la intencion de chantajear la deuda sea condonada por japoneses y de paso destruir la armonia mundial.
Este grupo Sionistas a efectuado otros ataques terroristas como 11/9, donde no murio ningun judio, ya que fueron avisados ese dia.

I do not want to glow in the dark!

I sent the above or below? 2 text to the Japanese embassy lets hope they agree to try that avenue and let the "Lifers" decide to become the Samurais of the Nuclear age, Fukuhsima Kamikaze and save MILLIONS of life World Wide.

Radiations in the sea and in the air is deadly for us all no matter where you are. Reality check I was in the Royal Canadian Navy so I know a bit about radioactivity lethal dangers. So stupid from GE & Tepco to install them near the sea!

No more safe fish means more people die not counting the economical and other social problems this will cause for the next 100,000 + years.

Keep in mind that Fukushima’s reactors were built by General Electric and the same model is used in many other places. There are 500 + operating nuclear power plants in the world and plans to buid many more and all it takes is one to go critical to destroy the earth's environment. Seems like a death wish if you ask me.

Smh Japan, Seriously these guys are about to make the entire pacific ocean dead entirely.


Vlada 21.08.2013 11:33

I have just logged in with an intention to make a joke, like "they should immediately ban any swimming in these pools", but in 1-2 minutes have lost any will for doing that. This is a way too serious an incident. I think TEPCO should be put aside. It is time for the Japan Government to step in with its full capacity and to try do its best to contain the leaks.


Martin Hawes 21.08.2013 11:12

The risk now is that the leaked radiation will prevent worker access, leading to further leaks: hence a chain reaction that could eventually force the evacuation of the plant. Next, the meltdown of the spent fuel pools. Level 10.


computerenigma 21.08.2013 08:50

@zorro. No one can help. No one knows where the three 100 ton cores are. Robots will not function in those levels of radiation, they have all failed. Humans can't work in there, and monitoring equipment fails too. The ecalation of the severity level is not 'as bad as it gets', it will inevitably get worse, and there is no plausible solution on the horizon.


Pegz Turner 21.08.2013 08:28

sounds like a good enough reason to nuke the owners of the company...and then anyone in the surrounding country. nice, destroy my planet.. thanks loosers, thanks for caring about anyone but your wallet. well now youll get no cash cuz were all gunna be dead


Frank Mc Carthy 21.08.2013 08:07

A level 3 with Tepco is really a level 6 or 7 so you are warned. Radiation must have been pi**ing out of these tanks since the beginning.


John Kochendorfer 21.08.2013 08:00

Thorium liquid salt reactors are safe and the fuel is cheap and abundant... but the Rothschilds dont control it and cant make a bomb from the Chinese are buying up the worlds supply.. that said who can force the jappanese to do the right thing and get in international help on this???


Rani Muller 21.08.2013 06:49

How can radiocative water not have contaminated the Pacific Ocean when fish caught in it, in a 5000m radius around Fukushima, are dead and rotting?

38 children of all the ones studied have already or are currently in the process of developing thyroid cancer!
Question : are the figures being downplayed too?

What are Tepco's actions to prevent further leakage of radioactive water?
In stead of lying or glossing over the truth, let's have the facts for all to see!

Can we and our children still enjoy a swim in the Pacific without coming out glowing or getting sick?
Or was this always part of 'the greater plan', maybe?


James Robert Mac Aulay 21.08.2013 05:59

Everything has consequences. Monsanto is doing a great job of polluting the American (both continents, not just the U.S.) without a nuclear accident. The failure of our food supply and Muslims becoming the dominant society should happen about the same time, - nuclear power won't affect either much.


randy watson 21.08.2013 05:23

what a terrible tragedy. i dont think nuclear ANYTHING is safe. the effects of a leak can be around for hundreds of years or more. its a heavy burden to put on the next generation. praying for the people of japan and the world
