Fukushima Reactor No. 4 potential lethal radiation leak, protection suggestions from Nuclear Emergency, Tsunami, Earthquake

Out of sight therefore often out of mind, but this is one topic we should all be aware of as it will indeed have a roll on effect on all living things : humans, animals, plants, fish, birds  . . 

Sadly there is nothing that many of us can do to prevent this potentially from happening, so below these articles there are some other links to suggestions on what to do in a Nuclear, Tsunami or Earthquake emergency.

1st March 2016

Silently lurking within the confines of Japan is one of the biggest threats to human civilization

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, warns that the facility’s Reactor No. 4 is on the verge of a catastrophic failure that could turn our planet into a “dead zone.” Read as he details the growing danger in Fukushima below:

“The resulting releasing of radiation would turn North America into a ‘dead zone’ for humans". Link

So let's look back at a couple of the articles on the Fukushima Reactor No 4 . .

1  10th October  2013

"Radiation levels in seawater just outside one of the damaged Fukushima reactors spiked this week to the highest level in two years, the operator of the crippled Japanese nuclear plant said on Thursday.

Radiation levels on Wednesday, the day six workers were exposed to highly radioactive water, jumped 13 times the previous day's reading, the highest levels since late 2011".

2 10th October 2012

"Japanese officials said on Saturday the unprecedented effort to remove spent fuel rods from one of the crippled Fukushima nuclear reactors was on track despite lingering concerns about the structure's vulnerability to another earthquake".

"I don't think the situation is unstable," said Goshi Hosono, Japan's minister in charge of the response to the nuclear crisis. He was speaking to reporters after his first tour of the twisted and partly destroyed building that houses Fukushima's No. 4 reactor". Link

3 15th October 2012 

"The company at the centre of Japan's worst nuclear crisis has acknowledged for the first time that it could have avoided the disaster that crippled the FukushimaDaiichi power plant last year.

In a reversal of its insistence that nothing could have protected the plant against the earthquake and tsunami that killed almost 20,000 people on 11 March, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) said it had known safety improvements were needed before the disaster, but had failed to implement them". Link

4 28th May 2012

"A new bulge in the walls of the Fukushima Unit 4 nuclear plant has driven growing new fears over in Japan.

Attention has focused on Unit 4’s spent fuel pool because of the large number of assemblies filled with rods that are stored high above the ground at that severly damaged reactor building. Three other reactor buildings at the site are also badly damaged, but their pools hold fewer used assemblies". Link

Although we all hope this will not happen it could be a potential disaster, so we have researched some sites and created some links below that could help you, especially if you find you are in its' potential path.
