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
