Fukushima a Ticking Nuclear Timebomb


Japan's Ticking 

And just when you thought it was all over - the truth starts to leak out!

100 feet up in the air inside a badly damaged building sits a pool of water. This pool contains some 10 times the deadly poisonous material of Chernobyl in the form of a very large quantity of spent nuclear fuel.

All that is preventing a massive disaster that would make Chernobyl look like a Sunday picnic is the water in the pool, if it should leak out Japan would be history.

The Nightmare Scenario:

1. The pool structure was damaged by the hydrogen explosion that shattered the reactor building..
2. The structure of the building itself, which is holding up the pool, is compromised.
3. The pool is open to the elements - covered only by a plastic sheet.
4. The Company has consistently lied about the actual dangers involved, and have no clear strategy for removing the deadly material.
5. The Fukushima plant is in a highly active earthquake zone.
6. Tornadoes have touched down not too far away.

I would not be sleeping easily if I lived in, or even near, Japan. The Fukushima directors should be tried for treason and the reckless endangerment of the planet.
