EVERYBODY HAS HEARD about the massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami in Japan, killing possibly tens of thousands and laying waste to a giant swath of the northeast coastline. Also, I should hope you’ve now heard about the three crippled reactors they’ve been trying to corral ever since.
They just can’t seem to get enough water to keep the nuclear cores under control; even pumping in seawater to cool them, which is very corrosive and tells you that it’s so bad they’ve wrote off ever using the equipment again. Already they’ve had three explosions from the build-up of radioactive hydrogen and steam (kind of like what would happen to a pressure cooker with no relief valve). According to a Japanese official, one or more reactors may have suffered a meltdown already.
Radiation is spewing out as we speak. Evidently, these explosions have badly damaged the containment structure and/or suppression chambers surrounding the cores. These water-filled enclosures cool the fuel rods; which are not only enriched uranium as you might think (bad enough), but reprocessed plutonium — infinitely worse — and uranium oxide material called MOX. This could be a million times Chernobyl.
Now they are going to use helicopters to dump water on it, much like a forest fire. That’s right. If this is what they now have to try, then it’s really bad, people. Really bad.
If all three cores melt down, Japan will see so much radiation Chernobyl will look like a walk in the park. Will it affect the US? You’re damn right it will. At least with our economy, but maybe even more, regardless of how much the media wants to say.
If these cores melt all the way down and explode when they reach the water table (the China Syndrome), radioactive Cesium-134, Caesium-137 and Strontium-90 particles will irradiate a big chunk of Japan. And it’s also possible some of the lethal mess will climb high enough into the atmosphere to get picked-up by the Jet stream, flow across Alaska and down into western Canada and the Northwest US. All depends on wind patterns and where rainfall will wash it back down.
During WWII, the Japs used incendiary bombs attached to balloons to drift over to the US and a few actually reached the lower 48. They didn’t do much damage, only landing in remote locations, but a picnicking family did come across one and a bomblet went off, killing a little girl. The media hasn’t said a word about this story (or on the plutonium MOX fuel) because they don’t want people to draw conclusions.
Plus, Japan’s major problems will hit the economy hard. Already the stock market has plunged 300 points or so over the last couple of days. The only good thing is oil futures will go down, too, since Japan may not be needing all that much in the future. Interesting coincidence, huh?
Now, whether this is a “HAARP” event, I couldn’t tell you. Nor do I know for sure it’s part of “End Times” prophecy or what. Whatever the case maybe, I’m certain the near future looks bad.
Better get those seatbelts on.
