triple disaster costliest in history as Radiation from cracked reactor spreads: It will get worse






We are told one day Tokyo's water though 150 miles from the plants was not safe. A day later it is. Workers from the plant have heavy doses of radiation and are in the hospital, the plants are now out of danger, they keep getting worse. Q&A: Health risks I just heard of a neutron beam being seen at one plant. That can't be good?

Japanese nuclear officials fear crack in reactor core as radiation spreads

Radiation Spread From Crippled Japanese Nuclear Power Plant Continues

The Japanese government on Wednesday urged people not to eat 11 types of vegetable grown near the quake-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in northeast Japan after levels of radioactivity in the produces were found to have far exceeded legal limits.

Tokyo tap water not safe for infants, officials warn

Latest in Japan's quake, Tsunami, nuclear crises!Radiation in Tokyo's tap water spikes to twice the level acceptable for infants, though it remains safe for adults, according to officials. That adds to concerns about milk and produce from the area near the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex, including broccoli, which was put on the growing list of affected food




The status of six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant

Japan estimated the cost of the damage from its devastating earthquake and tsunami could top $300 billion as authorities in Tokyo warned that babies should not be given tap water because of radiation from a crippled nuclear plant.

It appears that for the first time, the containment system around one of the Fukushima Daiichi reactors has been breached. As I said, I don't care what they say. This is going to be worse than Chernobyl. Japan is an island and about the size of California. Location, location, location. I am going to check out the latest now. In every regard things are moving so fast. Hope for the best plan for the worst. That is what I absolutely expected Japan had done. They of all people should know better than to take chances with a nuclear reactor let alone many. I understand we were warning them from the early 70's that their safety systems were inadequate

I understand we have been lied to from the beginning in order to keep the people and the world from panicking. I saw a program on the dire crisis facing Japan's elderly who are dying from lack of care and medicine as they lie huddled on gym floors. They are surrounded by destruction that as of yet has not begun to be cleaned up. The information on the reactors just gets worse and worse. The health effect on their water and food supply become more evident every day. I just heard the Pacific is being affected.

Good or bad it is time for the lying to stop and lay the truth out for the people of Japan and the world. This is the most expensive catastrophe in world history. We do not need it to become the worst disaster in world history.

Problem was is that these reactors were designed be GE and even the engineers said there were design flaws. One engineer resigned because of that back in the 70s.

One suggestion would be to have the guys from Ukraine come in and give them some help on the matter as they've been through this before. At this point it looks like they need to dig under the reactor and somehow prevent the leakage. How to do that is the multi billion dollar question?

Yeah I remember watching that guy. They knew they were inadequate and made retrofits for them. We used them on ours but Japan felt it unnecessary.

don't quite remember but I was just going through the kitchen and heard that, that number 3 is the only reactor there that uses the most deadly combination of uranium and plutonium. Great!

Most of the Chernobyl folks are dead or at best living with a lot of health problems caused by their over exposure to radiation. Those that have survived, have been screwed out of their pensions, after being promised full benefits if they'd stay on at Chernobyl for an extended time.

Perhaps they'd contribute over Skype, but I doubt they'd be willing to get burned again.

They've been able to underplay the extent of the disaster so far. Mostly because they have not allowed workers to get near the reactors. Now that they have people going inside and getting lethal radiation doses, it's becoming more difficult to make light of the emergency.

The USS Ronald Reagan has been moved again, and the crew is busy scrubbing the decks, as once agian their dosimeters are registering high.

Japan has been lucky that the winds haven't changed. When they do change, and the wind blows across Japan, South Korea, China and Russia, expect this story to get kicked up a notch.

This may not be 'like' Chernobyl, but I believe it's going to be worse.

How do you evacuate 110 million people, when sailors refuse to steer their ships into Tokyo Harbor?

Wease I have been saying from the beginning that this was going to dwarf Chernobyl and it nwill.

It was obvious they were lying from the beginning and they still are.

They now have radiation in the ocean and wonder why? Duh! That reactor three is the only one of the 6 that uses the deadliest of the deadly, a mixture of plutonium and uranium.

Chernobyl was a 7 now they are talking 6, eventually it will be a 10 or for which they of yet do not have a classification.
