Fukushima nuclear power plant threatens to undo the global web of life

2013-11-12 from Dr. Helen Caldicott [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_z9Pd4dNTY] [http://www.helencaldicott.com/about.htm]:
Dept. of Nuclear Engineering, University of California Berkeley tells us that according to Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary of Energy, Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and one of the nation's leading experts on spent fuel pools, "There is more than 37 million curies of long lived radioactivity stored up in the spent fuel just within this single pool. If another severe earthquake were to strike causing the pool to drain, or some other event such as an explosion, it could result in a catastrophic radiological fire releasing nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 [into the Earths atmosphere] as was released by the Chernobyl accident."
According to Gregory Jaczko, former Chairman of U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, at a press Conference, 9/24, at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan , "...the upcoming attempt to remove Fukushima Unit 4 spent fuel is unprecedented, the pool has significant structural damage and the   overall effort is very risky."      
According to Yale University Professor Emeritus Charles Perrow, a frequent author for the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, during an interview with "news.com.au", "This has me scared." In the event of an explosion, "Tokyo would have to be evacuated because of cesium and other poisons that are there will   spread very rapidly. Even if the wind is blowing the other way it's going to be monumental."       
According to Mycle Schneider, an energy consultant and adviser to members of the European Parliament and the Int'l Atomic Energy Agency, in an article published at "globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com": "A massive spent fuel fire would likely dwarf the current dimensions of   the catastrophe and could exceed the radioactivity releases of Chernobyl  dozens of times."  
The Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee chairman Anne McIntosh described the scale of the contamination in the food chain as "breathtaking" and warned that restoring consumer confidence would take time and money. The Government has a role to secure the correct balance between affordable food prices and effective regulations that require transparency and quality. The consumer cannot be left to face a Catch 22 where they can either pay for food that complies with the highest standards of traceability,   labeling and testing or accept that they cannot trust the provenance and composition of the foods they eat.....so that's all right then!   
Japan to be Nuked?   
Unfortunately, the historical precedents are not great. It took a double atom-bombing and (by some accounts) two separate admonitions by Emperor Hirohito for Japan's "leaders" to finally accept the Potsdam Declaration and end World War II. Of course, being constitutionally "sacred and inviolable," the Emperor could not be held responsible for anything.   
We can't expect similar Deus ex Machina resolutions to Fukushima or anything else. Japan is supposedly a democracy, so in theory a responsibility-shirking government is ultimately the people's problem   --- and responsibility --- just as much as the nuclear disaster and all the nation's other problems are.
Of course, the people have a plentiful supply of other targets to blame until enough of them come to that   realization.   
Washington's Blog reports that "Mainstream Media Awakens to the fact that Fukushima Is Still a Total Mess", and "Continuous Leaking of Radioactive Water, Dangers of Spent Fuel Pools", but the truth is that   the situation is far more Apocalyptic and dire than even these doom-laden headlines let on.   
The event at Chernobyl was contained starting within a matter of days;   and yet in Japan we see a situation where radioactive particles are allowed to spew onto the land, air, and ocean, and irreparable damage to   the biosphere is taking place, yet still going uncapped.
The true villains of this event may be the same individuals allowing this continued contamination.   
In the interest of delving into the whole sordid matter of Fukushima I have updated the permalink post "Fukushima False Flag ", and encourage  readers to delve into the subject and realize that 3/11- Japans 9/11, is perhaps the worlds most heinous act of terrorism and genocide, and incalculably detrimental to future posterity. The perpetrators of this crime must be brought to justice, and the entire facility must be encased in cement forever, above and below ground. The New York Academy of Medicine's Fukushima Symposium makes crystal clear that there has been a deliberate effort by Japanese government, the Tokyo Electric   Power Company (TEPCO), the Obama administration, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) to downplay the long term health consequences of nuclear fallout, especially to children. Instead of backtracking on the billions of dollars he approved to subsidize TEPCO to build more US nuclear power plants, Obama is participating in an international cover-up to conceal the serious long term dangers of this technology.
