Recent fire at No. 4 reactor extinguished today image Catastrophic Nuclear Crisis Looming in Japan stele, Monday, Apr 11 2011, 11:23pm
Japanese authorities today announced they have raised the nuclear crisis level at the devastated Fukushima nuclear plant to the highest on the scale, 7; only Chernobyl reached this catastrophic level previously. Nevertheless, we should not confuse the two incidents, as Fukushima has SIX powerful reactors in varying degrees of crisis whereas Chernobyl was a single reactor. Fukushima threatens to DWARF the Chernobyl catastrophe. (story and 2 comments and 3 images)

Yet another tectonic shift and earthquake this time around the Thai-Burma border. Had this quake hit in a heavily populated area it would have been devastating. But NOTE how the mass media is playing down these related events with brief reports lacking detail and without making obvious connections to recent tectonic activity on the Pacific Rim.

North Pacific Jet Stream image Criminally negligent TEPCO Execs not the Exception in Japan but the Rule quin, Wednesday, Mar 16 2011, 10:24am
A little familiarity with Japanese history reveals a tradition of criminal corruption and deception from the highest echelons of society to the lowest – it’s a way of life! The deceptive and criminal behaviour of directors at Tokyo Electric, which included falsifying safety records and hiding rather than correcting problems at nuclear power plants, stems from a certain privileged class consciousness that considers itself above the law and regards the masses as nothing better than (expendable) serfs.

seppuku4.jpg image Dai-ichi Reactor #4 in flames as Personnel Evacuated due to Dangerous levels of Radiation stew, Tuesday, Mar 15 2011, 10:16pm
Fires in reactor #4 at the Fukushima nuclear power plant were most likely caused by hydrogen build-up or heat generated from spent fuel rods exposed to the atmosphere, or both. However, the later seems to be the case as fires were accompanied by very high levels of radiation issuing from the reactor -- the result of spent fuel rods breaking down and releasing poisonous radioactive particles into the environment due to loss of cooling.

Australia is reputed to be one of the oldest and most stable land masses on the planet, so when it experiences a magnitude 4 earthquake following the devastating Pacific Rim quakes from NZ, Japan and that mysterious earth rupture in Peru, it’s time to ask geophysicists and other specialists what the fuck is going on?

Dai-ichi nuclear reactor #2 has exploded today at the Fukushima power plant followed by the largest release of radioactive material into the environment to date. Engineers believe the core has been exposed and a partial meltdown has occurred but they say containment vessels seem to be intact.

image Fukushima #3 nuclear reactor Explodes, situation under control, Really? staff report via gan, Sunday, Mar 13 2011, 11:17pm
I'm no double-talking politician or conservative scientist under political pressure, ALL I KNOW is WHAT I SEE and explosions do not indicate a situation 'under control!' Furthermore, the presence of poisonous radioactive Cesium in the atmosphere after the first explosion is a clear indication -- I have recently learned -- of a CORE MELTDOWN, but that was under-emphasised/reported at the time as is this latest 'trivial' explosion at Dai-ichi reactor #3, in one of the World's LARGEST nuclear power plants!
