TEPCO is not giving out ANY information about all of this. They are covering this whole disaster up. They do not talk about the loss of reactor core fuel rods. They do not talk about the loss of spent fuel pool rods. We may very have exceeded the amount of Plutonium coming out of the burned MOX fuel at Fukushima to kill all life on this planet. The shared pool with 6500 rods, lost its roof and quite possibly also had either a partial or complete melt down. Again, TEPCO is not releasing any information or allowing any country to send in their experts to confirm or deny anything that they say as their official figures.
After Chernobyl exploded and melted down, the government there ordered 1 MILLION people to work there, to try and prevent further disaster and to keep the melted corium blob from going down to groundwater, where it could explode and cause the entire continent to become unlivable, plus contaminating the whole globe much worse than it did anyway.

At Fukushima, it looks and feels like no one even cares. The workers take weekends off, and there was NO EFFORT to keep the coriums from three reactors from breaching containment and then melting through into the ground, where they presently are. There are a few hundred to a few thousand working there a few days a week.

They both agree that it quite possibly will also result in a life extinction event for the whole world, due to the cascading loss of all other nuclear plants and spent fuel pools on site as a result of this, with the subsequent release of MASSIVE amounts of radiation that will never end for thousands of years into the future.

If and when the Fukushima nuclear power plant site becomes too toxic for human life to even get close to it, it will mean that the common spent fuel pool and all other reactors at the site will eventually melt down, explode or worse, because it takes constant human attention, repairs and maintenance to keep them all going and to keep things from getting much, much worse, very quickly.
Another discussion is present on page 63: http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML1205/ML12052A108.pdf
In the following video, he talks specifically about the fuel rods being exposed to air, in SFP #4.
However, TEPCO has consistently provided severely conflicting statements around just about anything to do with Fukushima, so if one relies on their press reports, it is hard to determine if anything at all actually happened, much less to pin them down to single number around ANYTHING. As a matter of fact, the whole industry seems to have a problem with transparency and truthfulness. For more information, follow these links…

Even without SFP #4 collapsing, we may have already experienced a global life extinction event. The amount of toxic, deadly dangerous plutonium released is MASSIVE and has never happened before in human history. The consequences are also unknown, since this has never happened in the entire history of the planet.
This is not the only life extinction threat faced by humanity. There is another disaster that is coming, and it has everything to do with the nuclear industry ignoring dangers, covering up accidents, and denying any significant radiation release. If the industry cannot be honest and truthful now, how can they prepare for massive natural events, such as Carrington Events, which happen historically on a fairly regular basis?
Due to constant earthquakes, Fukushima is collapsing, fissuring and sinking, up to 30″ in some places. Given the precarious situation, and deteriorating conditions, plus the fact that workers are harder and harder to get for less and less pay, it seems as if the buildings and SFP #4 will not stand.
If and when SFP #4 falls, it will catch fire due to no water covering the ‘hot’ spent fuel rods. This means the whole Fukushima site will have to evacuated, which means the rest of the SFP’s will melt down and burn as well. There will be up to TEN out of control nuclear fires at Fukushima, if things get worse. So what is being done to keep this nightmare from Hell from happening?
Are you worried about SFP #4? You should be. Any normal human being who has an ounce of empathy or caring about fellow human beings would be concerned enough to take massive action and get involved in this situation, and do everything possible to prevent it from getting worse. The WHOLE WORLD should be involved, and many countries SHOULD BE helping, taking action here, but there is nothing like that happening.
TEPCO SHOULD BE in panic mode…. but they act as if nothing unusual is happening at all. Oddly enough, they send everyone home on weekends, for vacation time, as if this were just a normal job.
Meanwhile, Fukushima keeps on burning and releasing radiation. According to the author of this video, the Common Spent Fuel Pool is burning.. as of 12/2012. This may be confirmed by rising background radiation levels globally.
Share this article with friends, family, professionals, politicians, anyone who can make a difference and the media. This information needs to go viral and become widely known, so that the nuclear industry cannot hide in the dark.
