Fukushima: Find the corium? Maybe in a few thousand years or so
By Christina Consolo
So another week or so has gone by since I wrote my first piece on Fukushima for End the Lie, and still no progress has been made at Fukushima, although they did throw a sheet over the spent fuel pool of Reactor #4.
They are talking about building a 100-foot long wall under the reactors and digging some wells on the property to deal with the radioactive water problem. For now, it just pours into the ocean, 24/7 and keeps steaming out of the ground after which it is carried into the air which then sends it blowing around the planet.
Of course none of the things Tepco did in the past week brought them any closer to containing, circumventing, repairing, or fixing the rickety structure that is Reactor #4 (see photos).
In the past thirteen months, a lot of what Tepco has done has failed miserably. For example, the machines brought in to “clean” the radioactive water kept breaking because the radiation is so high. The robots sent in the reactor buildings to assess the situation also kept breaking, because the radiation is so high. The drone they tried to fly over the site to take air measurements crashed into the roof of Reactor #2 last year, because the radiation is so high.
Humans can’t get near the reactors and/or corium either, because… yeah, you guessed it, the radiation is so high.
So, what is corium?
It consists of nuclear fuel, fission products, control rods, structural materials from the affected parts of the reactor, products of their chemical reaction with air, water and steam, and, in case the reactor vessel is breached, molten concrete from the floor of the reactor room.
In the case of Fukushima, the corium melted out of the reactors, probably the first day. It has been estimated to be 30-40 ft under the reactors, although this topic has been extensively debated.
There are 3 corium blobs, between 100-150 tons in size, at a temperature of approximately 3000 degrees Fahrenheit. Of course no one really this precisely, since humans/robots/cameras can’t get near it without dying or breaking.
With our current level of technology, we should know in a few thousand years. With new, as of yet non-existent technology, we might know sooner.
In fact, all that Tepco has seemed to be able to do is to keep pouring tons and tons of water on everything and monitor the gauges they have left (which they just say are broken when they read too high). And of course lie, lie and lie some more about everything.
The lying part is actually something that the so-called “powers that be” surrounding nuclear accidents all seem to get right, probably because they have had some practice (i.e. Chernobyl, Three-Mile Island).
But when a nuclear accident like Fukushima happens, which has the potential to kill everyone on the planet, the lying just isn’t acceptable anymore.
In fact, there is a little thing called “Crimes Against Humanity,” usually reserved for the likes of evil dictators and lying degenerates who conduct mass murders.
The management of Tepco certainly qualifies for this designation, as well as certain government officials in Japan, Canada, the US, and Europe. The list keeps spreading like a nuke plant evacuation zone, enveloping not only government leaders but the groups and/or agencies below them.
You know, the ones created to “keep us safe.” In the US, the taxpayers fund these agencies and programs, buy their equipment (which they often end up giving to domestic law enforcement agencies when they get tired of it), and pay people to run it.
In fact, we also generously provide those people with top quality health care, dental, day care, travel, tuition reimbursement, vacation time and retirement. In some cases we continue many of these benefits for the rest of their lives after they work for one of these bureaucracies.
The corporate controlled mainstream media, which is supposed to report on important news that can affect our lives, also qualifies under the label just as Tepco does.
Their lack of attention to this is inexcusable. It is their job to investigate. This includes our beloved weather reporters, who should have been researching and reporting on the fallout and radiation levels in their forecasts, for the past 13 months (instead of a few concerned people on YouTube).
The research was already done for them by the Civil Defense in the 1960s, when we were worried about getting nuked from Russia during the Cold War. In a future article I will name names for the Fukushima Crimes Against Humanities List, but I’m going to need a lot of space, and I want to make sure I don’t leave anyone out.
We have to talk about this. We have to circumvent these government officials, useless agencies, and corrupt corporations in order to do our own research. We must ignore the establishment media. We must make our health a priority. We must become citizen journalists. We must use our common sense. We must avoid exposure as much as possible.
We must mitigate against the harmful effects of radiation. We must document what is going on right now. We must take pictures of mutations. We must write, post, meet, and brainstorm.
We need every single person that cares about the future of humanity in our effort. If you can even do just one of these things, it will help. We must become the solution. And the solution is to help each other.
I see more potential for dealing with the radiation problems than I see for fixing our political and economical problems. Many of them don’t even seem solvable, unless we start with a clean slate.
But there will be no clean slate for Fukushima. It will require adaptation, at the very least. There has never been a nuclear accident even close to Fukushima’s severity. And for right now, it is a disaster with no end in sight, that at any moment could become a million times worse.
But if we work together to find solutions, and share love, caring and concern for our fellow man, then regardless of the outcome, it will be okay.
Geomagnetic monitoring and random event generators showed the outpouring of concern, sympathy, and empathy after 9/11 was the highest ever recorded worldwide. Do you believe in the Global Consciousness? Science has proven that it exists.
Einstein was continually perplexed by his observations, where electrons from the same organic matter, when separated, continued to react together without delay and without an observable, physical connection to each other.
This has yet to be thoroughly explained, and represents a serious puzzle amongst the physics community. There has never been a better opportunity to activate this, whatever it is, than right now.
Do you believe that one person can make a difference? We need to find that one person. We are in uncharted territory, and although much of this is outside of our control, you can control how you react to it. Knowledge is a powerful thing, even for the powerless. And so is love.
Just because our leaders are acting like evil degenerates doesn’t mean we have to follow their example. When faced with a global threat the likes of which have never been seen before, we need innovative and creative ways of dealing with it. Nuclear power may have been a mistake, but it will never be a mistake to care for one another.
Please send mutation images to [email protected]. Shoot at the highest resolution possible, and include your name, location, and date the mutation was found, for proper credit if the images are published. If it is from store-bought produce, include the location where it was grown and purchased. The more information you provide, the better you will be helping the rest of us.
Please help Christina purchase a spectrometer in order to get the most accurate radiation readings and thus get you the most precise information possible by shopping through her Amazon link or donate directly via PayPal to [email protected] Keep in mind, this is expensive equipment and it is the only way that specific isotope readings can be obtained from food items.
