Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima an Extinction Event

By Andrew Midkiff

There are over 435 commercial nuclear power reactors operable in 31 countries, with about 70 more reactors under construction. To date there has been at least 33 serious incidents at nuclear power stations since the first recorded one in 1952 at Chalk River in Ontario, Canada. Background radiation in low intensities is part of our natural environment. But starting in the 1890's man made radiation was first released. In 1895 X rays were discovered, in 1896, radioactivity was discovered. In 1942 the first nuclear reactor was developed. Then, in 1945, the first nuclear bomb was detonated. No one knows how much death this man-made radiation has added to the environment.

Die-offs of various species are accelerating around the world, cancers are up. The oceans are dying, and corporations continue to build new reactors. When will we have the next Chernobyl, the next Fukushima? Does our future include wearing radiation suits and respirators just to go outside? Or will we even have a future? The psychopaths that are running the world do not seem to care about life on Earth.

Chris Harris a nuclear engineer was questioned about Fukushima; “Do you agree that this is, essentially — if it runs the next 20 years without anything happening — basically is an extinction event for a good part of the human race and higher life forms?” Answer; “These are myths of Fukushima: Containment – there isn’t any, even though today they started off probably another failed attempt at the ice walls; Cold shutdown is a myth at Fukushima — they declared it, but there is no cold shut down there; Cooling is a myth there, because you can’t tell that there is actual cooling going to where ever the fuel is; Waste processing… mountains of plastic bags, a mountain of them — that’s waste processing?; Decommissioning is a myth; Cleanup is a myth, it’s a waste generation facility; … There is no containment; Emergency planning there is also a myth, as we have seen because of the faulty electrical systems and everything else from the makeshift system they do have running. So, I am in agreement with your statement.“

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), are to date unsure about the duration of releases of Iodine-131 at Fukushima. Another top nuclear physicist is quoted as saying that “Iodine-131 will be lethal after ingestion of 30 billionths of a gram”. This thing is out of control and all life on this planet is at stake. Tepco admits they will be discharging contaminated water in the sea for decades. Look at the die-offs that have happened just since 2011. If we loose the oceans we as a species are extinct.
