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.

Japan Quake Nuclear Disaster and More to Come?

On March 11, an 8.9 quake struck Japan, followed by a massive Tsunami and 150 aftershocks. The coastal areas hit by the wave were devastated, but damage to the cities from the quake itself was limited as Japan’s buildings are made to withstand quakes. However, the most worrisome aspect of this disaster is the explosion of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor. Thousands of people have been evacuated from the immediate area, but the fallout may devastate the entire island of Japan and will be heading East to reach the West Coast of the US and Canada over the next few days.
You can see coverage of this on the Intel Hub, including a map that shows the path and radioactive output of the fallout .

As I mentioned on a previous post, Benjamin Fulford says a tectonic weapon deployed from an underground bunker in Arizona or Nevada was responsible for the Japan quake and that the New Madrid Fault zone is next.

Now, I’m not asking you to believe this, i’m just pointing it out and time will tell soon enough whether Ben is right or this was just some disinfo nonsense.

There are other clues that point to this being the result of one or several galactic events, such as the coronal mass ejection and super moon which both occurred on the day of the quake. The supermoon
will hit its peak on March 19th and astrologers are predicting this will cause floods and other natural disasters or extreme weather.

Possibly, the disaster in Japan could also have something to do with the approach of the comet Elenin. I have up until this point been very skeptical of all the hype surrounding the comet, but please take a look at this video by youtue 9Nania in which she predicted on March 8th that an event such as the Japan quake would take place somewhere between March 11th and 15th. On top of that, she provides a lot of other disturbing information such as the fact that both the Gates and Rockefeller families will be in India during that time, which just happens to be where a massive underground fallout shelter has been built for the elite to hide out in in the event of a nuclear disaster.

Given the accuracy with which she predicted this recent disaster, if you happen to live on a fault line it might be good to keep in mind that she says there may be a second one coming around march 22nd-23rd. And if you can’t head over to India to keep Bill and Jay company, you might at least want to make some preparations where you are.

Even Euronews has admitted that we are in for a pole shift some time soon, even a total reversal of the magnetic poles.

Now, I’m sure the fallout that hits North America will be less than most of us get from our cell phones on a regular basis, and this probably sounds like a lot of paranoia to most of you, but if you’re looking for a bug-out bag laundry list, FEMA has one ready for you here: http://globalrumblings.blogspot.com/2011/03/fema-says-get-survival-kit.html

And you can get just about any survival supplies you need from my friend Jim at http://ultimatesurvivalsupplies.com.

I would like to think that by this time next month, we will be back to heaving a collective sigh of relief that all the hype about the Comet Elenin, the supermoon, and everything else was just another Internet psy-op and not the beginning of the apocalypse, but they way things are shaping up, it’s looking like the prophecies of the Maya, the Hopi and the Book of Revelation are about to unfold before our eyes.

Alien Disclosure on the Horizon?

Posted by Sonia

2008 Pope says there could be aliens and some of them may even be free of original sin. The church also apologizes for condemning Galileo and states that science and religion need each other and the Vatican organizes a conference to mark the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin.

National Post states UN has appointed an Alien Ambassador to meet with aliens. Does the UN know something we don’t?
http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/09/26/un-plans-to-appoint-a-space-ambassador-to-meet-with-aliens/

At the National Press clubon the 27th of September 2010, Air Force officers reveal details of incidents in which aliens may have disabled nuclear reactor sites.
While Capt Robert Salas was on duty at Maelstrom AFB in Montana in an underground capsule at a nuclear weapons site in March 1967, strange lights were observed in the sky by security guards, with a red glowing object hovering just above front gate. Missiles began to go into unlaunchable condition while the object hovered over the launch control facility. The object left silently at high speed, then returned and radio contact with security guards was lost. Security launch was reset but missiles remained disabled due to guidance and control system failure. The Commander did not know how to explain event, stated it was not an Air Force exercise. A member of the Air Force department of Special Investigations ordered Captain Salas and others never to speak of this and they were obliged to sign a non-disclosure agreement. After reading the book Above Top Secret by Timothy Good in 1994, which describes missles being shut down while UFOs are seen overhead, Captain Salas requested documents concerning what was known as the Echo Flight incident from the Air Force and succeeded in getting them declassified. The same thing had happened a week earlier at another site.
