Radioactive Japan Disaster! Hit By 9.0 Earthquake, Huge Tsunami, Nukes Meltdown

UPDATE 8/26: Japan's Prime Minister has resigned due to the fallout from the government's response to the tsunami and Fukushima nuclear meltdowns.

Japan was hit with an earthquake measuring 8.9, followed by huge, devastating tsunami of up to 7.3 meters (25 feet). The entire Pacific Rim is under a tsunami alert including Hawaii, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Guam, Marianas, Russia, Indonesia, South America too! More than a dozen aftershocks have hit, many over 6.0.

The damage to Japan is extensive including a huge oil refinery which has blown up!

Warning now extended to Pacific West Coast of USA...

Absolutely AMAZING video footage available on CNN and other news stations.

Probably based upon the half-life of some of the radioactive elements like Cesium. However there are far more longer-lived elements in the area that they are not talking about, like Plutonium....

Fukushima update
Quote:
There appears to be very high levels of radiation at Fukushima plant reactor #3, and at either reactors 1 and 3, or both, nuclear fission may have been occurring in the melted down remains. Ideally, once a plant is turned off, i.e., control rods inserted etc. etc., the state of "criticality" is stopped and there is no more fission, or at least, only a small background level. But, if a nuclear power plant's core melts down, nuclear material can re-accumulate in some uncontrolled manner in the wreckage beneath the plant or in lower areas of a reactor containment vessel, and critical mass can be re-attained. This apparently has been detected over the last few weeks at Fukushima. This is evident from the presence of Xenon-135, a product of nuclear fission with a half life of just over 9 hours.

Norikazu Otsuka, a Japanese TV newscaster, has been diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia and is now hospitalized, getting ready for chemo. He felt a strange lump in his neck on October 28, he says. -- Various news sources including: Zakzak 11/7/2011, Yomiuri Shinbun 11/6/2011 have also filed reports.
“In his morning program on Fuji TV he’s been promoting Fukushima produce by eating them in the show. He also happened to be in Fukushima in March 15. Just a coincidence? Never mind that ALL is predominant in small children, and an adult case is one in 100,000 annually in Japan.”

8% of Japan irradiated
Quote:
Japan's science ministry says 8 per cent of the country's surface area has been contaminated by radiation from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.
It says more than 30,000 square kilometres of the country has been blanketed by radioactive caesium.
