Ghidorah and Rodan Will Be Joining the Mix

The latest as reported by Yahoo is that nearly all the fuel rods have melted to the bottom of the first reactor. http://news.yahoo.com/nearly-fuel-fukushima-reactor-melted-says-tepco-152528950.html Three reactors were heavily damaged. TEPCO does not have any way of seeing the exact location of the molten fuel due to the stratospheric levels of radiation. They said they will have to build robots to do the job since it is impossible for any human to get remotely near it. TEPCO claims it will take 30-40 years to clean up. Really? U-238 has a half-life of 4.5 million years. By the time TEPCO gets its act together the entire planet will be glowing and a new Olympic event will be added to the next Olympics, which will be hosted by Japan. Godzilla, Mothra, Ghidorah and Rodan will be duking it out.

So while TEPCO is going through the motions over the next four decades to “clean this up”, radiation will have traveled around the world several times. We don’t know how many people have died in Japan over the last four years from this. We don’t know how many children have thyroid cancer and how many others are gravely ill and dying. You see the problem is no one has ever planned for a disaster of this magnitude which is getting progressively worse. So they don’t know how to handle it. They are storing vast amounts of radioactive water in huge tanks by the crippled reactors. The radioactive soil and debris has been stuffed into big black plastic bags (like lawn and leaf bags) and tied up and left in piles numbering in the hundreds on a beach in Japan, probably near Fukushima. Yes, it is right by the water. Okay so what happens if there is a storm and those bags with radioactive debris gets carted out to the sea? And not everything is back to “normal” in Japan. You are only shown areas that have been cleaned up and the wreckage carted away. There are still areas that are a mess. They have no place to put it all. (There was a slide show on the web recently on the anniversary of Fukushima that showed all this.)

We don’t know what the effect will be on those of us who live in the United States. We don’t know what the effects will be on the countries nearest to Japan. A lot of the truth is hidden from us. And I don’t know how this event will play into other events in the future, but it is there and it’s smoldering away. And I surely don’t know what will happen if another major earthquake hits Japan in the same area.

  1. W says:

    It is so easy to be critical of these situations, especially when you take into account the obvious lies and cover-ups about what is really happening (not to mention the utter folly of building these nuclear-disasters-in waiting in the first place, all in the name of profit and “progress”). But I must repent of my cynicism, no matter how justified it may seem. Wouldn’t it be ironic if the world were ultimately destroyed in a nuclear holocaust, not because of the all-out war that many have feared, but because of an accident. Maybe we have passed the point of no return. Maybe it is no longer a question of if, but merely how much time we have left. Perhaps we should be looking at this from a different perspective. For instance, how does this whole thing fit in with our belief system? I am sure some people, if they give any thought to God at all, are wondering why and how this could happen, perhaps even blaming God. Then there are the atheists who would consider all this as proof that there is no God, or at least a God that was uncaring, impotent, or both. I am sure that God did not cause this to happen. But you can be sure it did not catch Him napping. I am not a doomsday prophet. There are plenty of those on TV who will try to make hay out of this (I call them prophets for profit). But maybe this is a wake-up call. It appears that this nuclear nightmare is beyond our best scientists ability to solve. God could fix this whole thing in a flash. Of course, even if God did intervene, there are still some die-hard skeptics that would credit someone or something other than God. So maybe that is one reason God would not bother fixing this problem that we created for ourselves. It isn’t that He doesn’t care. He has repeatedly, throughout our entire history, made it clear how much He cares for us, the ultimate expression of His love being the sacrificial death of His own Son. But we just continue to turn our backs on Him, mock Him, and spit in His face. So maybe now He has decided that He has just had enough. There always seems to be a surge in church attendance after a disaster, like 911. But that fervor soon wears off as things get back to normal. But maybe there is no getting back to normal this time. Maybe a nuclear war would be too quick and wouldn’t give enough people adequate time to turn from their wicked ways in heartfelt repentance. But maybe a long, slow, but irreversible and ultimately fatal event like this will give us enough time to seriously ponder our options. Time to choose whose side you are really on. God will accept you, no matter what you have done. Will you accept the sacrifice of His Son as payment for everything you have ever done. Maybe the radiation won’t get you. Maybe you will get hit by a car tomorrow on your way to work (or church). God never promised that nothing bad would ever happen to us in this life. On the contrary, Jesus warned His disciples that they would have tribulation in this world. But He also told them to be of good cheer because He overcame the world. So whether this is the end or not, you can have assurance of eternal life through Jesus Christ. God has made a way. The next move is yours.

  2. At this point the damage is done. I’ve read all sorts of ridiculous comments below the Yahoo article including what TEPCO should have done, how they should have built the plants, blah, blah. It is easy to play armchair quarterback when a disaster of this magnitude strikes. They build the buildings in Tokyo using a very strict code because of the abundance of earthquakes and the buildings sway and not crumble. BUT they did not apply the same to the power plants. I think also the plants are so old that no one bothered to upgrade them and I read an article about that on the web, too. Even in the United States our nuclear power plants are aging and are old. Now I hear that Obama gave permission for a new nuclear power plant to be built in the U.S. I think the first one in 20-30 years! And there still is no real safe method of dealing with nuclear waste.
    The bottom line is that man cannot govern or handle himself. Mankind is a disaster which is why we desperately need Christ.
