There’s a worrying spike in radiation at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Readings from a water storage tank have rocketed six-and-a-half-thousand times higher in two days. A powerful typhoon swept through Japan earlier this week, causing toxic waters to be released into a drainage ditch leading to the Pacific Ocean. It’s compounded what’s been a worsening situation at the plant in recent month.
In a recent study published by Duke University, scientists found dangerous levels of radioactivity and salinity at a shale gas waste disposal site that could contaminate drinking water. The study examined the water discharged from the Josephine Brine Treatment Facility into Blacklick Creek, which feeds into a water source for western Pennsylvania cities. Scientists took samples upstream and downstream from the treatment facility over a two-year period, with the last sample taken in June this year.
Here are a number of deeply disturbing facts regarding Fukushima’s increasing emission of radiation, the advancing stages of meltdown, the downright insane management of the disaster, and of course how it is affecting us on a daily basis.
In a speech on Sunday, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe admitted that the Fukushima situation is too serious to be left to just one country’s expertise. “We are wide open to receive the most advanced knowledge from overseas to contain the problem,” he said to the world’s nuclear and scientific communities. “My country needs your knowledge and expertise.” READ MORE: Japan finally admits to needing help containing Fukushima leaks

The operator of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant said Tuesday workers had spilled four tons of radioactive water, likely contaminating the soil and possibly groundwater.
Never before in the modern era has humankind been confronted with a nuclear disaster the likes of Fukushima. Truly, Japan has become the location of the greatest nuclear catastrophe in history, one that has defied countless attempts to resolve it.
While above average rainfall in the U.S. this year has increased the number butterflies, the Monarch butterfly population continues to decline. So why are the Monarchs disappearing? The World Wildlife Fund blames climate conditions and agricultural practices, especially the use of pesticides that kill off the Monarchs’ main food source, milkweed.
Workers from Japan’s TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi plant have located a crack in the bottom of a tank that may have leaked 300 tons of radioactive water in August, Japanese media reports.
The world community must now take charge at Fukushima. We are now within two months of what may be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
This informative video begins with an interview about cloud seeding (the use of silver iodide to seed clouds in order to increase rainfall) with George Bomar, a meteorologist and the manager of the Weather Modification Program for Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation Department.
