Remove Radioactive Fuel Rods from the Fukushima Nuclear Facility

The failure of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Facility shows that extreme events are becoming more common. The potential failure of the damaged Spent Fuel Rod Storage Pools is the greatest short-term threat to the survival of the Human Race. The damaged Spent Fuel Rod Storage Pool would likely fail in the event of another strong earth quake which is considered a 100% likelihood in the next three years. This preventative action must be undertaken on an emergency basis and without delay.

Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, after returning from a visit to the stricken plant said:

“The precarious status of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear units and the risk presented by the enormous inventory of radioactive materials and spent fuel in the event of further earthquake threats should be of concern to all and a focus of greater international support and assistance.”

In the event of a failure of the Spent Fuel Rod Storage Pools, the radioactive fall out would constitute the greatest disruption to human existence rendering our West Coast uninhabitable and permanently contaminating food production in the Northern Hemisphere. The Technology to more safely store these Spent Fuel Rods exists today in the form of Dry Cask Storage and considering the risk, at minimal cost.

We the people of Planet Earth call for an International effort, with out delay, to move all Spent Fuel Rods from the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility into safer Dry Cask Storage beginning with damaged Reactor #4. As the risk from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Facility goes far beyond the nation of Japan, this effort must be undertaken by all Nations and the International Atomic Energy Agency. No consideration of cost or national pride may be allowed to delay this urgent human response to this looming Extinction Event

      I think this situation is probably the most depressing & demoralizing of the MANY problems the planet faces right now. The threat is huge - inconceivable, almost - yet Japan refuses to do its duty to the planet & spend whatever is necessary to get these rods into dry casks immediately. Japan could put aside its pride & ask the rest of the world for assistance, but it won't do that either. Is this (karmic?) retribution for Hiroshima & Nagasaki? Whatever - Japan is willing to destroy a vast percentage of life on the planet, & it seems the rest of the world has no choice but to just...... watch. Have we really come to this place of utter helplessness?

      Listed on my petition are the telephone numbers and email addresses of EVERY SINGLE SENATOR ON THE 2 ENERGY COMMITTEES THAT HANDLE JAPAN AND THE FUKUSHIMA CRISIS -- SEE THIS LIST AND CALL, CALL, CALL THEM ALL! RING THEIR PHONES, UNTIL THEY LISTEN! (Be polite, because the staff assistants are nice...but make your concern clear.)

      We plan to visit senators, bring our petition and expert witnesses to support our request.

      Thank you, everyone!

      Thank you, Alan Hoffman, for continuing the echo that we all share--this is a global crisis and international assistance is needed, ASAP!

      Our voices will be heard...

      I hope that will help. More important is to get rid of the radiactivity out of the body, so one should consider to drink alkaline water: www.aquacentrum.com and also eat healthy mushrooms such as reishi
