NaturalNews has received information directly from an American who happened to be in Tokyo at the time of the nuclear incident and who also happens to have a background in atomic energy and nuclear reactors. He has sent us some extremely disturbing information that seems to indicate the situation with the reactors in Japan is far, far worse than what the conventional media is describing. We are not releasing this individual’s name for obvious reasons (he’s still in Tokyo and virtually unreachable), but he is an individual who is known to me personally and with whom I have spent a considerable number of hours over a period of two years. He is a very high-integrity individual and someone who is also extremely well connected in the world of advanced medicine.
In an email sent from Tokyo, this individual explains:
“…nuclear reactors use bundles of enriched uranium packed into stainless steel fuel rods in order to generate the heat that drives the turbines. You need to keep these bundles of pins cool otherwise they melt or burst.
Now, it seems the Fukushima power plant pulled spent fuel bundles (a collection of fuel rods) and stored them on site rather than shipping them to another location. Speculation is that in addition to the fires that are damaging the working reactor, these storage areas of their spent fuel bundles could [now] be on fire. This vastly compounds the problem of any meltdown, as this spent fuel will add to the contamination [because] it is extremely toxic.
In other words, as well as dealing with a potential meltdown, you also have the toxic products from the depleted fuel pins adding to the pollution. This is extraordinarily bad. The spent fuel bundles should have been relocated away from the reactor core a long, long time ago. Given the earthquake realities of Japan, these reactor building were basically dirty bombs waiting to be set off by a [natural] disaster.”
I want to thank this individual for his continued reporting from Tokyo and assure him that if he chooses to send more information to NaturalNews, we will of course continue to protect his anonymity.
Nuclear plant becomes dirty bomb waiting to go off
The upshot of his assessment of the situation is that the Fukushima power plant is now a “dirty bomb” waiting to happen. And it’s on fire right now. Radiation levels are rising so rapidly that it’s not even safe to work near the plant. This is very rapidly headed into a situation where suicidal volunteers are going to have to “rush in” and do some work on the plant, spend only a few minutes there, then evacuate as quickly as possible. And they’ll still get cancer.
This is exactly what happened in Chernobyl following the accident there in 1987. Hundreds of brave volunteers basically committed suicide in order to erect the containment vessel over the melted-down reactor and thereby prevent further radiation from escaping directly into the environment.
“The worst of the radioactive debris was collected inside what was left of the reactor, much of it shoveled in by liquidators wearing heavy protective gear (dubbed “bio-robots” by the military); these workers could only spend a maximum of 40 seconds at a time working on the rooftops of the surrounding buildings because of the extremely high doses of radiation given off by the blocks of graphite and other debris. The reactor itself was covered with bags containing sand, lead, and boric acid dropped from helicopters (some 5,000 metric tons during the week following the accident). By December 1986 a large concrete sarcophagus had been erected, to seal off the reactor and its contents. Many of the vehicles used by the “liquidators” remain parked in a field in the Chernobyl area to this day, most giving off doses of 10-30 R/h (0.7-2 uA/kg) over 25 years after the disaster.”
Far worse than a terrorism attack
This could be very similar to what we’re headed toward in Japan if the people there don’t get this situation under control very quickly. Terrorists couldn’t have carried out a more deadly disaster than what the “scientific” nuclear power industry has now delivered to the people of Japan.
In the name of scientific progress, the Japanese people are now threatened with the worst kind of death: Death by radiation poisoning — a slow, suffering breakdown of cellular function at every level. And sadly, Japan has already suffered through a similar scenario near the end of World War II when the United States of America dropped atomic bombs on the civilian Japanese population… twice!
What frightens me in all this is the choice of words from our source who describes the Fukushima site as a “dirty bomb” just waiting to go off. There’s a lesson in all this, of course: When you play God with the planet, it might be wise to follow the precautionary principle more closely. This nuclear catastrophe is a mirror image of what we’re likely to see in the future of agriculture due to GMOs (genetically engineered seeds). GE seeds are the “genetic dirty bombs” of agriculture, and they too could devastate human civilization in much the same way that nuclear power now threatens the very survival of an entire nation.
But too many “scientists” are infinitely arrogant, it seems, and they rarely consider the consequences of their dangerous actions. On all the issues that matter — GMOs and seeds, synthetic chemicals, cell phone radiation, nuclear power, fluoride in the water, mercury fillings and much more — “science” has delivered suffering and death, not lasting progress. Thanks to these scientists who convince governments to take on nuclear power, GMOs, vaccines or pharmaceuticals, our world is now facing a multi-faceted life extinction crisis that threatens the very future of life on our planet. And Bill Gates thinks the answer is “more vaccines!” (Insane? You betcha…)
The lessons to be learned from Fukushima are the same lessons humanity needs to learn on many other fronts: Don’t think you are so brilliant that you can outsmart Mother Nature and the laws of cause and effect. “Science” is no panacea. Science makes too many promises that it cannot keep (Improved crop yields! Clean energy! Amazing vaccines!), and when nations embrace these so-called “scientific” solutions, ultimately they only receive death, fear and financial destruction.
For instance, the pharmaceutical industry has done to the U.S. economy what the Fukushima power plant is about to do to Japan. The promises we were given in the name of science and medicine have all blown up in our faces, leaving only a desolate landscape of destruction and misery in their wake.
It is time we all began to seriously question our “faith” in the false promises of science and instead started to look at more holistic and humble solutions for sustainable life on our planet.
The Amish way of life, for example, may not look high-tech and cool, but it doesn’t explode in your face and irradiate your whole country, either. And the Amish do just fine without vaccines, too (and they have near-zero rates of autism, by the way).
