We pray for these people…  We here on the west coast are in line for some possible radiation leaked by the damaged reactors.  Will the Feds be honest with us?  Only time will tell….

    Supposedly Japan is the most earthquake prepared country in the world, but you would never know it by the looks of what’s left in the wake of this earthquake and tsunami. To build a nuclear reactor, let alone six of them anywhere near a fault line especially when your entire country resides along side a continental shelf such as the one Japan is on is just plain stupid. Just take a look at Google Earth and you can see how close they are to a precipice along the ring of fire. You would think they could have built it further inland so any damage from a tsunami was kept at a minimum. This should be another lesson learned that Mother Nature is predictable where they live and it’s transformation of the earth can be devastating. It was just a matter of time before an earthquake of this magnitude would hit Japan. Evidently they are slow learners.

    Just for an example, we have a potentially dangerous predicament along the west coast of California. Recently there has been another fault located not too far from the Diablo Nuclear plant. One has to wonder just how qualified are these people that pick these locations for such a contaminating energy source? Oh sure they build them to withstand earth quakes, but come on, the San Andreas fault runs the entire length of California so why build there? Did they forget about the 1906 quake in San Francisco or the Loma Prieta quake in 1989? I’ve felt, first hand, the 6.9 Loma Prieta quake where most of the heavy damage was, and I’ll tell ya, it was huge, real huge and the damage went on for miles. So to build any nuclear facility near anything that poses danger to it is just plain foolish and stupid. Maybe it would be a good idea to build all the nuclear reactors they want in the Nevada proving grounds.

    Its real unfortunate that so many have shown up missing and killed, but I think the people in Japan are well aware of the danger of living there. Talk about danger, how long will it be before we get fallout from Japans deteriating reactors? Would our Government even keep us informed? I think not. Not the Government we have today. What can you do about it anyway, walk around wearing a mask like the people in Japan? The fallout we get will be minimal but we’re still going to get some. It’s just a matter of time until our government finds out just how much. When you consider this and all the devastation in the Gulf of Mexico that still exist, not to mention prior to the recovery of refrigerants used for air conditioning (R-22 R-502) and refrigeration (R-12) where literally tons of liquid refrigerant that turns immediately into gas when not contained, was released into the atmosphere and gets burnt up every time any type of internal combustion engine starts, including jet engines, which in turn, turns into phosgene gas (poison), we are being poisoned every day of our lives. Can you imagine how much contamination this earth gets every day that goes un-noticed? Take the Pacific Gyre for example where tons of plastics and garbage gets a daily contribution from passing ships that just floats around in a huge spiral in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Cleaning up that huge glob of goop is absolutely impossible.

    Before any more nuclear facilities are considered, we might want to take in consideration that the earth just may be at the point of no return as all of the for-mentioned is serious and these poisons may never be able to be cleaned up. It’s a toss-up which may be the worst, nuclear contamination or millions of gallons of corexit floating around in the Gulf of Mexico (for now).
