Fukushima Could Be Like Chernobyl on Steroids

When disasters like this recent one in Japan happen, people often feel disconnected from it. “It happened somewhere else in the world. Sucks for them, but it doesn’t concern me.” That kind of thing. But individual countries, like the organs of our body, do not exist apart from one another. When one breaks down, the whole body is affected.
I have been so saddened by the disaster in Japan that I nearly lost my nerve and started crying on the radio today. Maybe it’s the German in me, but I am extremely pragmatic and totally unsentimental and unromantic, and breaking down in tears is highly unusual for me. Luckily, it was a short segment and we went to a commercial break before I succumbed to a blubbering meltdown.

Speaking of meltdown, concern about the nuclear disaster in Japan are not abating. At the Fukushima Nuclear plant that suffered damage during the March 11 earthquake and tsunami and and explosions in the days after, Tokyo Electric is struggling to keep spent fuel rods cooled in pools of water. While most of the media attention is on the reactor itself, the spent fuel rods pose an even greater risk, as failure to keep adequate water levels could lead to a catastrophic fire. According to Arnie Gunderson, a nuclear engineer at Fairewinds Associates and a member of the public oversight panel for the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant, which is identical to the Fukushima Daiichi unit 1, the result of such a fire would be “like Chernobyl on steroids”.

Please see the following article by Kirk James Murphy, MD on the significance of the spent fuel rods and the implications of this disaster for America:

I guess despite the media’s efforts to reassure the North American public that the disaster at Fukushima poses no direct threat to their health, it looks like people are not buying this. Instead, they are stocking up on potassium iodide tablets, to the point where both the Canadian and American governments have felt the need to address this issue by urging the public to stop buying the stuff.

Tell them, ‘Stop, don’t do it,'” said Kathryn Higley, director of radiation health physics at Oregon State University.

“There’s a lot of mythology about the use of potassium iodide,” added Dr. Irwin Redlener, a pediatrician and disaster preparedness specialist at Columbia University. “It’s not a radiation antidote in general.”

Canadian health agencies are stating the same, reminding people that it’s neither necessary, not a cure-all, nor even safe. Meawhile, the US military has already started giving it out to soldiers who are helping with relief efforts in Japan. Probably, for not, it’s not necessary for us here in North America. Unless Fukushima does turn out to be Chernobyl on steroids.

I live in Montreal, about as far to the tail end of whatever radiation could drift over from Japan. Out of curiosity, I asked the pharmacist about potassium iodide and whether they had any in stock. He acted like he had never heard the name before and excused himself while he went to google it. He returned to say what I already knew from having googled it myself before going over there and told me that they didn’t carry it but if there were a need for it in an emergency, the government would be dispensing it. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I pointed out that in when such a disaster hits, systems break down and you can’t even count of the government for food, water or shelter, let alone something like potassium iodide. And as it is, we have people being turned away at the ER and dying in the hallways of our hospitals, so you can imagine how the health system would be equipped to handle a true mass public health emergency.

Well, I didn’t go into all that, but it went through my head and I thought ‘Talk about having faith in the system! Somebody please give this guy a red pill! STAT!”

In any case, it seems the public is a little more aware than the pharmacist because when I had alook at the shelves where they do have a small supply of iodine/potassium iodate, which is for external use, they were nearly cleared out and this is not normal because it just so happens that I was in there the previous week, before the disaster struck, and noticed that they had this product right over the epsom salts, which are also useful to detox radiation. Now, I don’t know if the product is at all ingestible (it does say ‘poison’ on the label) or useful as a prophylactic against radiation exposure, but I can’t help to think that it can’t be a coincidence that it has suddenly become so popular.

As of today, radiation levels in the US are normal and hopefully Fukushima will not turn out to be ‘Chernobyl on steroids’, but if it does, I tend to think that we will have to do a lot more than take potassium iodide to make it through.

Disaster in America Next? Yellowstone?

This article was written by youtube user terral03

Yellowstone has been very active with lots of quake swarm activity, but recently went quiet; which is a bad sign. The massive brown dwarf is responsible for the global warming of all the planets in our solar system and each day Planet X (ELENin) gets 2 million miles nearer, which is heating up the volcano magma all around the globe each time our planet rotates. The gravitational influence of this giant grows by squares of the shrinking distance and that distance is only 21.56 million miles on October 17, 2011. The quakes in Yellowstone stopped, because the area is bulging over a super-hot magma mass that sees magma filling in all the voids between the floating land masses. That means the pressure is increasing gradually throughout the entire caldera in anticipation of one big massive explosion! The longer this pressure builds, the more devastating the explosion of the entire region.

Dutchsinse called the quake at Japan and he is giving warnings about Yellowstone. The earthquake activity over the last week is off the charts, because this dwarf star is getting closer. HAARP cannot create all of this seismic activity over the entire earth. Then you have Russian sending out quake warnings for the USA:

Look at the dates! The reason for the warnings have to do with the alignments of the planets that include Jupiter and Saturn on the opposite sides of the solar system:

This is the orbit data for this ELEnin Comet showing the earth coming into alignment tomorrow on 3/15. Now use your zoom control and back out to see the larger picture that the Russians are pointing to! Saturn and this ELEnin/Dwarf Star and the Earth and the Sun and Mars and Jupiter and Uranus are in near-alignment and our Govts know these things are happening and they are preparing without us. Then add the super moon and you can see why I drove 4 states to the mountains of North Carolina on March 1, 2011, because it looks like the crap is going to hit the fan!

This is my USMB Japan Crisis Topic with lots of links in case you are interested in seeing where we are getting much of our data. I recommend your subs and viewers subscribe to Dutchsinse and monitor his updates. Many among my sources have already bugged out and closed their youtube accounts. I can hear it in your voice that Sonia is waking up to just how serious this situation is becoming right before our eyes. At some point the people are going to wake up and realize we are looking at a crisis of Biblical proportions and our ability to prepare will diminish, because the crap will have already hit the fan.
