I Tried....3 Times to Seed the Article this Photo Comes with, But, for SOME Reason...I wasn't ALLOWED to. Essentially, as you can SEE from the Husk of a Remaining #4 Dai-Ichi Reactor Building at Fukushima; There are 1,535 Spent But Very Dangerous Fuel Rods....Sitting in Harm's Way. The Building ITSELF is Reported to Be...Listing, and the Containment of this Nuclear Waste...is FAR from Satisfying to Scientists, who Understand the Danger this Situation Poses. IF...the Building Falls, or if the Water Leaks out of the Containment Vessel they are Held in, on the Top Right of this Picture,...due to Another Earthquake, the Spent Fuel Rods would, according to the Experts, within 3 days, begin to Ignite and Eventually a Huge Explosion would Result. This 460 TONS of Spent Nuclear Fuel is Not Only Composed of Uranium, which is Dangerous ENOUGH, but there are a Fair Number of Fuel Rods that are "MOX" Rods,...BOTH Uranium AND Plutonium, which is 10 TIMES as Deadly as Uranium ! It is Estimated by SOME Scientists,...that if Fukushima #4...Burns UP, it could Contaminate...the ENTIRE Northern Hemisphere...for THOUSANDS...of Years !!!!
I'm...NOT saying - DOOM is Inevitable. I AM Saying: WHY aren't ALL the Brightest, Most Capable Scientists - in Concert, FIXING this Scary Problem ?
The Japanese Government and the Power Company...TEPCO, assure Everyone, that by 2016...they will Have ALL FOUR Reactors Safe, and No Longer a Threat to Human Civilization !!!
THAT'S....Not...GOOD Enough !!!! What if there is another Earthquake in this Area, in the...MEANTIME ???
This...REALLY...Needs something Like a WORLDWIDE..."Manhattan Project"...to Eradicate the Terrible Danger that Humanity is IN, and CLEAN this Mess UP...QUICKLY !!!!
