Prepare for Nuclear Fallout


Nuclear explosion: Plutonium leak heads to N America 36 hrs - 10 days

  • March 14th, 2011 3:47 pm ET
It is confirmed that the latest nuclear facility unit that exploded today, Unit 3, is the one using MOX fuel containing and thus releasing plutonium, more deadly than that released from other nuclear units.
Dupré's sources explained today there are 36 hours to 10 days, depending on the jet stream, for the hazardous material to reach North America.
The jet stream can be viewed at the Stormsurf site provided by San Francisco State University:  http://www.stormsurfing.com/cgi/display_alt.cgi?a=npac_250.
The fuel used in the Japanese nuclear reactor where an explosion occurred today is more volatile and toxic than the fuel used in the other reactors there, a Japanese nuclear expert warned.
At a press conference in Tokyo, Masashi Goto, who worked for Toshiba as a reactor researcher and designer, said the mixed oxide (MOX) fuel used in unit 3 of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant contains plutonium, which is much more toxic than the fuel used in the other reactors.
MOX fuel is a mixture of uranium and plutonium reprocessed from spent uranium, and is sometimes involved in the disposal of weapons-grade plutonium.
Goto added that the MOX also has a lower melting point than the other fuels. The Fukushima facility began using MOX fuel last September, becoming the third plant in Japan to do so.
The nuclear crisis began when the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunamis struck northern Japan on Friday.(Read more: http://news.cnet.com/8301-11386_3-20042852-76.html#ixzz1GbU69mGU)
This possibility of that particular unit using MOX fuel had been discussed at this weekend's Japanese Correspondents Press Club Conference as the worst possible scenario. The video of the conference in Japan (embedded) with information about Monday's national Nuclear Information and Resources Services conference call today for the general public were reported by this writer Sunday.
At the conference, a foreign correspondent asked why the Japanese government was not releasing vitally important information that could save lives.
Americans need to brace for fallout from Japan's nuclear energy facility meltdowns streaming toward vast portions of the United States.
Executive Director of Nuclear Information and Resource Service announced today that the group is sponsoring two grassroots conference calls, the first Monday, March 14, 2011 at 4 pm Eastern Time for citizens to call in with "concerns and suggestions."

The call-in number for the public conference call is 218-237-3840.

3 times Chernobyl equals Fukushima. Weather warfare units activated.

  • March 15th, 2011 1:48 pm ET
The Fukushima nuclear event is three times worse than Chernobyl. Southern Alaska and British Columbia will be hard hit by continual nuclear fallout unless the Pentagon uses weather warfare technology to cloud seed rather than using it to push the jet stream toward Canada in violation of the Convention on the Prohibition  of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques.
Three reactor units are melting down uncontrolled; their outer containments will not hold if not already breached; and the rods are exposed in all 3 reactor units according to human rights journalist Deborah Dupré's military intelligence sources.
It is confirmed that the United States Marines / Navy Sea Bee (heavy equipment) units were to go in to the reactor area early yesterday. Instead, they were ordered to stand down.
The jet stream will continue pushing most fallout north toward Alaska and Canada according to sources.
Weather warfare control units activated so that most of the United States mainland will have less exposure starting that would otherwise start within six days, sooner in the Hawaiian islands.
The Pentagon could alternatively employ weather warfare (ENMOD) to seed clouds so that the fallout does not impact the northern geographical areas and thus, save lives. According to sources, this is not the plan as of the time of this writing.
Either way, the nuclear fallout and subsequent contamination is not a one-time scenario, but a continual contamination.
The four U.S. nuclear submarines that supplied additional cooling material three days ago were ordered back to sea or to Pearl Harbor (SSN Columbus)

Tokyo (CNN) -- After three explosions and a fire in four days, the situation at Japan's earthquake-stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant grew more serious Tuesday, chasing all but a handful of workers from the site and raising fears of a far more dangerous radiation threat.
The latest incidents, an explosion Tuesday at the plant's No. 2 reactor and a fire in a cooling pond used for nuclear fuel at the No. 4 reactor, briefly pushed radiation levels at the plant to about 167 times the average annual dose of radiation, according to details released by the International Atomic Energy Agency.
That dose would quickly dissipate with distance from the plant, and radiation quickly fell back to levels where it posed no immediate public health threat, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said.
But the deteriorating situation and concerns about a potential shift in wind direction that could loft radiation toward populated areas prompted authorities to warn people as far as 18.6 miles (30 kilometers) away from the plant to stay inside.
according to CNIC co-director, 7 of the 10 nuclear generators at two sites are at risk of nuclear meltdown and he stated, "We are moving closer and closer to that situation."

"There is still a very high risk of further radioactive material coming out," Prime Minister Naoto Kan said, asking people to remain calm.
About 200,000 people living within a 12.4-mile radius of the plant already had been evacuated.
Authorities also banned flights over the area and evacuated most workers from the plant.
Those who remained behind continued a seesaw, last-ditch effort to flood reactors with seawater to keep them cool and prevent a wider environmental and public health catastrophe.
The beleaguered crew had to abandon the plant control room Tuesday night because of high radiation levels, Kyodo News reported, citing plant owner Tokyo Electric Power Company.
"Their situation is not great," said David Brenner, director of the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University. "It's pretty clear that they will be getting very high doses of radiation. There's certainly the potential for lethal doses of radiation. They know it, and I think you have to call these people heroes."
Troubles at the plant began shortly after the 9.0-magnitude earthquake that struck Friday off the shore of northeast Japan.
Although the plant's three functioning reactors shut down automatically when they detected the quake, the tsunami that followed swamped the diesel generators that provided backup power to the reactor cooling systems.
Crews eventually were able to restore backup power, but problems keeping the reactors cool eventually forced plant officials to take the drastic step of flooding them with seawater in a bid to keep the temperatures down. Still, pressure buildups, problems with valves and even a failure to fill a generator's gas tank have led to explosions and other problems with keeping the reactors under control.
Tuesday's incidents appeared to escalate the situation: Edano said the radiation releases from the explosion and fire were the first that appeared to pose a threat to human health, if only briefly.
On Sunday, this reporter printed:
The Japanese daily newspaper, "Niikei" reported that Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said a meltdown of the reactor core was the cause of the explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant according to Statfor Global Intelligence.

For those who think this is B.S, there is a study being conducted in San Fransisco that has managed to track a 7,000 mile journey of trace amounts of lead from a specific smokestack in China.
At the time this is being written, Alaska is reporting slightly elevated radiation readings.
The U.S. Government still says "we have nothing to worry about".
