The Fukushima Coverup

Things are continually getting worse at the ill fated Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan.

It is quite likely that the Fukushima disaster will surpass the Chernobyl disaster before long, if it hasn't already.

The government cannot be trusted to drop the propaganda and just tell the truth, nor to halt construction of new plants like Fukushima.

These nuclear power plants are not shielded from storm outbreaks or global climate change.

The video below indicates that Reactor 4 at Fukushima may tumble over since the ground underneath it seems to have been undermined with water, plus the Reactor 3 explosion damaged Reactor 4's structural integrity.

Washington's Blog has an interesting post about the coverup of the fact that one reactor melted down within a few hours of the earthquake and Tsunami.

Germany has decided (see also USA Today) to stop all existing nuclear plants by 2022.

Japan admits that three reactors had a complete meltdown within hours of the earthquake and tsunami.

It is now known that "the worst possibility in a nuclear accident", something that is "far worse than a core meltdown" has taken place:

The nuclear fuel in three of the reactors at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant has melted through the base of the pressure vessels and is pooling in the outer containment vessels, according to a report by the Japanese government.

(Telegraph). Hot particles from Fukushima have been detected in Seattle, and one expert estimates that people in the Seattle area ingest up to 10 "hot particles" a day.

The trust in nuclear power seems also to have melted down and it is not likely it will be trusted again going forward.

A good idea, filtering radiation out of standing water in the reactor buildings, got underway but had to be shut down in a few hours because the radiation was too intense for some of the filtering to continue.

The filters were expected to last for weeks, not hours.

Dredd Blog and other blogs envisioned a cover-up from the beginning. In other words, news in advance. Now the cover-up has unraveled completely.

Seattle is getting more from Fukushima than meets the eye or what the government will admit.

It is even getting worse as shown in this post.

Four commissioners of the NRC are sabotaging efforts to improve safety, according to a member of congress.
