I agree that this situation may be apocalyptic, underlining the apocalyptic stupidity of the entire dominant system and its minions. And I agree that we should put pressure on the powers that be to deal at a world level with trying to defuse this time bomb. But I do not see that there is anything else we can do but only stand by helplessly while the apocalypse slowly climaxes. In the meantime, we need to keep working for the real, fundamental, long term solutions. Nuclear weapons are illegal under the Earth Constitution and would be immediately dismantled worldwide once it comes to power. Under the Provisional World Parliament, all nuclear fission facilities are transferred to the Earth Federation government for decommissioning. If we survive this Fukushima episode, there will be others, until global disaster finally strikes. Only by uniting under the Earth Constitution can we assure a future for humanity and the environment of our planet. Dr. Glen T. Martin President, World Constitution and Parliament Assoc.

The Fukushima disaster in Japan has brought to the forefront the dangers of Worldwide nuclear radiation. The crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war”. In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami: “This time no one dropped a bomb on us … We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives.” Nuclear radiation –which threatens life on planet earth– is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities. While the long-term repercussions of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are yet to be fully assessed, they are far more serious than those pertaining to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, which resulted in almost one million deaths (New Book Concludes – Chernobyl death toll: 985,000, mostly from cancer<http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=20908> Global Research, September 10, 2010, See also Matthew Penney and Mark Selden The Severity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima<http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=24949>, Global Research, May 25, 2011) Moreover, while all eyes were riveted on the Fukushima Daiichi plant, news coverage both in Japan and internationally failed to fully acknowledge the impacts of a second catastrophe at TEPCO’s (Tokyo Electric Power Co Inc) Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant. The shaky political consensus both in Japan, the U.S. and Western Europe is that the crisis at Fukushima has been contained. The realties, however, are otherwise. Fukushima 3 was leaking unconfirmed amounts of plutonium. According to Dr. Helen Caldicott, “one millionth of a gram of plutonium, if inhaled can cause cancer”. An opinion poll in May 2011 confirmed that more than 80 per cent of the Japanese population do not believe the government’s information regarding the nuclear crisis. (quoted in Sherwood Ross,Fukushima: Japan’s Second Nuclear Disaster<http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=27587>, Global Research, November 10, 2011) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://www.nukefree.org/editorsblog/robert-stone-must-now-film-fukushima The Japanese government is about to pass a national censorship law clearly meant to make it impossible to know what's going on at Fukishima. ( http://www.nukefree.org/state-secrets-act-will-curb-knowledge-fukushima ) Massive quantities of radioactive water have been flowing through the site since the 3/11/11 earthquake/tsunami. ( http://www.nukefree.org/fackler-tabuchi-nytimes-fukushimas-radioactive-g...<http://www.nukefree.org/fackler-tabuchi-nytimes-fukushimas-radioactive-gusher> ) At thousand flimsy tanks hold still more thousands of tons of radioactive water which would pour into the Pacific should they collapse. An earthquake and two typhoons have have just hit there, flushing still more radioactive water into the sea. ( http://www.nukefree.org/andrea-germanos-cdreams-fukushima-poses-apocalyp...<http://www.nukefree.org/andrea-germanos-cdreams-fukushima-poses-apocalyptic-threat> ) The corrupt and incompetent Tokyo Electric Power Company will soon try moving 400 tons of supremely radioactive rods from a damaged Unit Four fuel pool, an operation that could easily end in global catastrophe. The rods contain 14,000 times as much radioactive cesium as was released at the bombing of Hiroshima. ( http://www.nukefree.org/editorsblog/14-000-hiroshimas-still-swing-fukush...<http://www.nukefree.org/editorsblog/14-000-hiroshimas-still-swing-fukushima-air> ) Nobody knows the exact location of the melted cores from Units One, Two and Three or whether they are still fissioning. Reuters and others report criminal involvement, slashed wages, inhuman working conditions, serious shortages and lack of training in what has become an extremely dangerous labor crisis. ( http://www.nukefree.org/reuters-horrific-labor-conditions-shortages-fuku...<http://www.nukefree.org/reuters-horrific-labor-conditions-shortages-fukushima> ) Intensely radioactive hotspots have turned up throughout Japan, including some that threaten human life in Tokyo and make cast a pall on the upcoming Olympics. At least one report indicates a massive dead zone in the Pacific apparently caused by radiation pouring in from the site. Tuna contaminated with radiation from Fukushima have been caught off the California coast, and there are widespread reports other marine life disappearing throughout the Pacific. ( http://www.nukefree.org/michael-snyder-waking-times-pacific-dead-zone ) With the information flow from Fukushima apparently about to go dark, the presence of independent media and researchers has become more critical than ever. Petitions with more than 140,000 signatures asking for a global takeover of the Fukushima site will be delivered to the United Nations November 7. The ask is for a transnational team of world's best scientists and engineers to guarantee that all necessary resources are available to deal with this crisis. ( http://www.nukefree.org/crisis-fukushima-4-demands-global-takeover-pleas...<http://www.nukefree.org/crisis-fukushima-4-demands-global-takeover-please-sign-our-petition> ) At very least we desperately need to know more about the11,000 intensely radioactive fuel rods on site, the three missing reactor cores, the proposed bring-down of the Unit Four fuel rods, the potential for still more explosions, the labor crisis, the unending flow of potentially lethal radiation into the biosphere, and much more. The fate of the Earth may now hang at the mercy of a widely distrusted corporation and far-right government intent on blacking out that site.
