U.S. shows growing alarm over Japan nuclear crisis

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States showed increasing alarm about the worsening nuclear situation in Japan on Wednesday and urged its citizens to stay clear of an earthquake-crippled power plant — going further in its warnings than Japan itself.

    Yeah Woody, they’ve ‘got crisis’… : (

    I posted this link yesterday concerning the jet stream’s influence on the U.S.

    Seemingly California is going to get the brunt of any residual exposure from a major catastophic explosion. 600,000 stored fuel rods with no containment boggles my mind and I know first hand what fuel rods and their associated hazards are.

    I smell gross corruption and malfeasance here. Seemingly complacency and greed became the order of the day at “Tokyo Power and Electric Co.”

    I’ve have a visceral sense that the U.S. is next and it won’t be nuclear related, but far uglier than Japan’s crisis.

    It’s already in meltdown and they are in denial.

    The whole design of the facility is questionable. Two of GE’s original engineers for the project quit in disgust after being ignored when they pointed out design flaws. GE sold these knowing there were dangers that could have been avoided.

    They kept 40 years worth of full rods on site, up to 600,000 fuel rods. Many of these were housed in the top of the reactor buildings that exploded. These are heating up without coolant and are of major concern as they are not shielded and are in atmosphere at this time.

    The Japanese government is lying about the danger. The US Surgeon General said it was prudent to buy potassium iodide then quickly back-tracked with a strong rebuttal from major US media sources. My spider sense is tingling.

    This is going to be many times worse than Chernobyl. In many aspects, it already is. Hawaii should be on a full fall-out alert. I don’t know about the US West coast, but it’s probably wise for Alaska to be on alert too.
