Fukushima 1, a global problem 2013
Why don't Japanese let anyone help preventing Fukushima 1 leaking and stop destroying the Pacific ocean life?
The American government seems to be ignoring that this is happening. The FDA refuses to test animals in the Atlantic to see how far the radioactivity has reached. This has been going on for a few years, and nothing has changed. Just levels of radioactivity being found in farther locations. Also there is a debate as to how the plant is leaking. Some say there are reactors on top of each other and they are sinking into the ground. It would be nice to hear a true story for once.
The situation must be much worse than they say, I just can't understand when Japan is going to ask for help.I guess it will happen when it is too late.
Animals in the Pacific have already started showing signs of hair loss and body sores. Too late will be drastic measures.
The reason why I raised this topic up is that at 9-10 years old I found a magazine with the pictures of kids and animals born after Chernobyl catastrophe(which was not worse than Fukushima).Now I am a quite old girl and I still remember those pics.
Images that will stay with you for the rest of your life...
If you count on our government to act to protect us then it will last for decades. Fukushima is the perfect example of the future of the nuclear energy. A dangerous energy that once triggered can't be controlled. Do you really think that they can do anything? Here is my theory: in Tchernobyl the reactor exploded therefore they could pour cement to stop the leaking. In Fukushima if I remember well several reactors were affected and I don't even know if they exploded, I guess not otherwise they wouldn't try to cool off the water where the reactors are plunged in. I think that there lies the difference hence their difficulty to help. They need the leaking to avoid the pressure to build and to cause an explosion. I am not an expert, it is my theory.
They are going to freeze the ground, but as far as I know the world had this experience in past, it never worked in Chernobil,it won't work in Fukushima. They must let international experts to assist, because it is not a local problem any longer.

Nuclear energy is supposed to be part of the new U.S. energy strategy. We are assured that the new plants will be fail safe. How safe are they in the event of an unforeseen disaster, like the Japanese quake?From Yahoo...

As a direct consequence of the Fukushima nuclear reactor explosion 300 000 tons of contaminated water are rejected daily in the Pacific ocean. Given that Japan has the biggest international fish market, given that the...

scientist have predicted wat the world is going to experience some 4 yrs time and America is doing nothing abt it. i hope the BP OIL SPILL will teach them one or two lessons
