    The China syndrome refers to a scenario in
    which a molten nuclear reactor core could fission its way through its
    containment vessel, melt through the basement of the power plant and down into
    the earth. While a molten reactor core wouldn’t burn “all the way through to
    China” it could enter the soil and water table and cause huge contamination in
    the crops and drinking water around the power plant. It’s a nightmare scenario,
    the stuff of movies. And it is happening at Fukushima and there is no technology
    known to man to stop it continuing.
    TEPCO, Tokyo Electric Power Company however
    is trying to play down the full impact of this nuclear accident.
    According to scientist Micho Kaku there is
    a mathematical formula which can determine at what level the accident really
    is.
    Apparently the stricken nuclear plant has
    already released 50,000 trillion Becquerel’s of radiation which would put
    Fukushima in as a category 7 nuclear accident which is still less than
    Chernobyl however The Fukushima plant is still continuing to leak radiation
    from its reactors and TEPCO have claimed the problem could take another 40
    years to fix, and to top that statistic the whole situation is less than
    stable.
    Fukushima is basically a ticking time bomb.

    The slightest disturbance i.e. a small
    earthquake and there are many as the stricken plant sits on a fault line
    causing a pipe to burst and an evacuation of the crew could set off a full
    scale melt down at all 3 nuclear power stations taking the catastrophe far and
    beyond what happened at Chernobyl.

    To make matters worse TEPCO in a moment of panic
    pumped in sea water from the Pacific in a desperate attempt to keep water above
    the  melting core but as we well know sea
    water contains salt which corroded any remaining working pumps at the site.
    They resorted to sending in suicide squads
    into the crippled plant to hose water onto the melting reactor.
    And the situation has now worsened.
    This accident has released enormous amount
    of iodine into the atmosphere, Iodine is soluble, and when it rains it soaks
    into the soils and of course into the food system.
    Farmers there are now dumping milk and
    crops and the local economy has collapsed.
     It’s
    been over half a decade since Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station
    suffered a catastrophic meltdown which topped the International Nuclear Event
    Scale due to its severity. Radiation loves to hang around, and researchers
    conducting operations with robots inside the damaged reactors were met with
    radiation levels at their highest point since the actual meltdown back in 2011.
    In fact, the radiation level is so elevated
    that the robot operators had to quickly recall one of their robotic probes
    because it began to literally go blind.
    Like sending a rover to another planet, the
    mission for robot operators from the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) is to
    monitor the status of the failed reactors and the nuclear materials housed
    within.

    Unfortunately, the radiation level of the
    reactor units was high enough to actually begin to damage one of the robots’
    camera systems, and could have completely blinded the view for the operator and
    left the bot stranded in the radioactive hellscape. (In layman’s terms what they
    are saying here is no technology has yet been invented to fix the problem,
    humans or robots cannot get anywhere near the rector long enough to fix the
    problem so TEPO’s claim it will take another 40 years to fix the problem is
    probably a very conservative guess)

    However, TEPCO was able to study some of
    the readings taken by the robots before things went awry.
    The scientists have estimated the level of
    radiation to be anywhere from 530 Sieverts per hour to 650 Sieverts per hour.
    Those numbers are representative of the
    amount of radiation an object would expect to be bombarded with over a specific
    period of time.
    To add a bit of scope to that, it’s
    estimated that just one Sievert will cause fatal cancer in approximately 5% of
    people, while a dose of five Sieverts will kill 50% of people exposed to it
    within a month.
    As little as 90 millisieverts (0.09 Sieverts)
    accumulated over time can increase cancer risk in both adults and children.
    (With 300 tons of this stuff washing into the Pacific every day how long will
    it take before it kills the Pacific Ocean, it is a big ocean but not that big)

    Later this month TEPCO plans to send yet
    another probe into the reactor to take additional readings and hopefully paint
    a clearer picture of just what exactly is going on inside.
