Here’s a 3 minute video which reports that at least one of the Japanese nuclear reactor damaged by the tsunami has suffered an actual “breach“. A “breach” indicates that radiation is escaping uncontrollably into the atmosphere.
More, the breach involves plutonium–the most poisonous substance known to man. 1 millionth of a gram of plutonium is allegedly sufficient to cause cancer. It’s been estimated that a mass of plutonium about the size of a baseball, equally divided among all the people on earth, might be enough to wipe out our species.
The nuclear reactor in Japan includes some unknown but significant mass of plutonium. Some of that plutonium is now escaping into the atmosphere.
It’s likely that the “breach” will cause workers who are currently pumping water onto the hot, radioactive core to flee. If so, there’ll be no more cooling for three nuclear reactors, full-blown meltdowns are likely to follow, and God only knows what will happen then.
It’s possible that an entire region of Japan may be declared to be a “dead zone” and have to be evacuated for a generation or more. Plutonium poisoning of the atmosphere will probably affect the entire world. (If you’re not taking an iodine supplement, now might be a good time to start.)
Japan, having already suffered thru the “lost decade” of recession, will almost certainly suffer further national and economic degradation.
I doubt that Japan will ever truly recover. I believe Japan is dying. Over the course of the next generation or two, Japan will not disappear, but it will degrade back towards a third-world status. Once the No. 2 economy in the world, Japan has seen its best days.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Japan invaded and conquered by China within the next 20 years.
Most people would dismiss my notion that Japan is “dying” as absurd. Of course, Japan has sufficient technical expertise and work ethic to overcome its technological problems. But Japan’s problems go far deeper than mere technology. In its stunning economic growth after WWII, Japan gained great wealth and power, but lost something human. Japan became an economy rather than a nation and the Japanese people began to wither much like animals kept in cages in a zoo. Yes, they’re being fed. And, Yes, they’re being clothed. But, Yes, there is something about the prison-like, artificial structure of an economy and attendant system of economic values that saps the human will to live. We “live” in a nation; we “exist” in an economy.
For me, the most telling indicator of Japan’s future is a report that 75% of Japan’s women aren’t married. Japanese women tend to be self-sufficient, liberated feminists. Promiscuous sluts. Not all of them. But a lot.
If 75% aren’t married, that pretty much means that 75% of Japanese women aren’t having children. They are little more fertile than homosexuals. The Japanese population is therefore aging and diminishing in size. The Japanese economy will therefore tend to implode, Japanese power and wealth will tend to decline. A nation without children is a dying nation.
Japan may be capable of dealing with its nuclear disaster, but how will it survive its promiscuous, infertile feminists? As an economy, the Japanese have lost their will to live. They may be screwing like Asian rabbits, but they are not reproducing. They will therefore decline and tend towards national death.
Of course, Japan could “come back”–but not until it’s gone through some sort of national “hell” that causes its feminists to abandon birth control and live as natural, reproductive women.
The US is not so unlike Japan. Thanks to the “modern miracles” of high taxes, birth control and abortion, American women are increasingly independent and infertile. High taxes make it difficult to afford to raise children. Birth control and abortion provide easy alternatives to pregnancy.
The invasion of America by 20 million illegal aliens has been to some extent precipitated by the legalized murder (abortion) of 60 million American babies by their mothers. Those “missing” 60 million babies would’ve grown up to be the kids who harvested our crops, mowed our lawns, and baby sat our next crop of infants. In the absence of 60 million of our own children, we now need 20 million Mexican kids to fill their roles.
Result? Much like Japan, America has also been degraded from a nation into an economy. Like Japan, America is accepting a system of values that may be great for screwing and making money (for somebody), but are terrible for making babies and are certain to lead towards national suicide.
Most nations can survive their technological problems. No nation can survive infertility.
Here’s the video on the Japanese nuclear reactor. About 3 minutes. It’s the least of their problems.
Here’s another recent video indicating that the Fukushima reactor problem is far worse than previously reported by Japanese officials. Rising levels of radiation have already been detected on the West Coast of the USA. Radiation levels in Tokyo may become dangerous. 3 million Japanese may have to relocate. Northern Japan may be lost. The world’s nuclear industry is probably finished.
