Senator Sounds Urgent Alarm About Imminent Nuclear Disaster

After touring the devastation of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown Senator Wyden is raising the alarm that we can no longer ignore the threat of an imminent nuclear disaster.

Senator Wyden just returned from a tour of the cleanup, or lack their of, in Japan following last year’s Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Upon return he went on television to raise the alarm that Fukushima disaster is by no means over and it has the potential become exponentially worse at any given moment.

Moreover, he is sounding the alarm that the US can no longer continue to duck the real and present threat such and impending disaster will occur here in the United States, just as it has in Russia and in Japan, unless we stop ducking the issue and act quickly to prevent it.

There is group off online activists working fervently to post the information below on all government officials’ pages and to spread the word as far and wide as possible. Please pay attention to the information below and join us in helping anyway you can to spread this information to anyone and everyone so action can be taken before it is too late.

April 17, 2012: Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), appeared on MSNBC’s The Daily Rundown to discuss a recent onsite tour of what remains of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facilities decimated by last year’s earthquake and subsequent tsunami.

Wyden, a senior member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, sent a letter to Japanese Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki looking for ways to advance and support clean-up and recovery efforts. Wyden’s principal concern is the relocation of spent fuel rods currently being stored in unsound structures immediately adjacent to the ocean. He strongly urged the Ambassador to accept international help to prevent dangerous nuclear material from being released into the environment.

Please take the time to read/watch what the experts are saying about the danger of SPENT FUEL POOL 4!!!

[If spent fuel pool 4 breaks, now, workers will have to abandon the plant. Workers will not be able to withstand radiation with protective gear. Machinery fails, at such high radiation levels. This would leave the current 3 out of 6 reactors to meltdown and 6 spent fuel pools, which are currently cooled, would not be maintained. Potentially 195 reactors worth of radiation would burn into atmosphere.]

Maggie Gundersen explains spent fuel pools contain the approx. equivalent of 32 reactors worth of radiation, each, at Vermont Yankee…still trying to verify exactly how many reactors worth of radiation are in each of the spent fuel pools at Fukushima–but if we use the spent fuel pools from Vermont as a guideline (because they were manufactured in same design as Fukushima)–that’s a lot of radiation.

“The pools at each reactor are thought to have contained the following amounts of spent fuel, according to The Mainichi Daily News:
• Reactor No. 1: 50 tons of nuclear fuel
• Reactor No. 2: 81 tons
• Reactor No. 3: 88 tons
• Reactor No. 4: 135 tons
• Reactor No. 5: 142 tons
• Reactor No. 6: 151 tons
• Also, a separate ground-level fuel pool contains 1,097 tons of fuel; and some 70 tons of nuclear materials are kept on the grounds in dry storage.” –v

You already know that Fukushima’s fuel pool number 4 may be the single greatest threat, but that pool number 3 is very dangerous as well.
