It’s Not Over: Government Plans for the Worst: Forced Evacuation of Tokyo
(Editor's Note: I feel that disseminating this information is critical. An understanding of the crisis is paramount to dealing with it. The mainstream media provides no value, whatsoever, for the citizens of the world. If it wasn't for alternative media outlets, you could not be made aware of the threat to the world that is being posed by the Fukushima incident. Neither does the mainstream media inform you that the US Coast Guard continues to spray benzene and Corexit on the gulf around the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, at the behest of BP and our government. Oil is still spewing into the gulf, and the chemicals simply keep it from rising to the surface. Out of sight, out of mind. Although TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) says that the situation is under control, the Fujushima situation is on the path to becoming a China Syndrome Event (a total meltdown) which will put every human being on the earth at risk of death by radiation. - JSB)
While it has for the most part disappeared from mainstream view, the Fukushima nuclear disaster is anything but over. In fact, the situation in Japan has gone from bad to worse.
Bottom line: There is no way to contain the radiation.
Even more alarming is that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and other agencies have warned that the nuclear storage pools (the containment units that are being used to cool the nuclear fuel) have been damaged and may collapse under their own weight.
Such an event would cause widespread nuclear fallout throughout the region and force the government to evacuate the nearly 10 million residents of Tokyo and surrounding areas, a scenario which government emergency planners are now taking into serious consideration.
Leading Japanese newspaper The Mainichi Daily News reports:
There was a chance early on that a storage pool collapse could be prevented, but according to the report Tokyo Electric Power Co. refused to take the necessary steps as a cost-cutting measure.
Now, as radiation fallout envelops the entire northern hemisphere, there is a distinct possibility that the crisis will move into an even more critical and dangerous phase.
When news of the disaster first emerged we warned, contrary to mainstream experts, that it could be much worse than the Chernobyl accident of the 1980′s, that no containment would be possible for at least a few years, and radiation levels across North America would sky rocket. A year on, we are seeing adverse impacts on ocean water throughout the Pacific, and ground levels of radioactive contaminants are well beyond safety thresholds for potable water, food, and soil.
With the Japanese economy already on the brink of meltdown and the rest of the world drowning in debt, an escalation in the severity of the disaster in Japan could be the last nail in the coffin for world financial markets and economic growth.
Even worse, if storage pools in the No. 4 reactor collapse and disintegrate as the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has warned could happen, we will see a humanitarian crisis of unprecedented scale as millions of refugees will have no choice but to flee Tokyo. They’ll have no possessions, no money, no food, no water, no shelter, and a very fragile safety net.
This is what SHTF looks like. The government lies. The corporate cover ups. Downplaying of the severity of the crisis. And then… panic.
