Fucking Fukushima Daiichi Reactor 4’s Fuel Pool Is a Fucking possible Extinction Fucking Issue for every Fucking Person in the Whole Fucking World and the Fucking MainstreamMedia is mute on the whole subject The world needs to get mad real mad right now and demand our Fucking defacto leaders do something instead of trying to fuck us but maybe this is the biggest  FUCK ever

Why the use of the F-word so much in the title Because it seems if you don’t put a pair of boob or swear or mass violence no one notices it . And this is probably the most dangerous thing ever that mankind has faced in it entire known history. And of course what happening is profit and loss propaganda and meanwhile nothing is really being done to fix the Fucking super Dangerous situation at this damaged Fukushima Daiichi Reactor 4’s Fuel Pool and if this fuel pool collapses from say one of the many earthquakes that plague this area of Japan. Its probably goodnight for most people in the northern hemisphere I wonder if this could have any bearing on all the 16,000 CEO’s and company president resigning.

bankersresigning quitting retiring

Do you think they know that its going to collapse eventually and there all moving south of the equator or to there bunkers hideouts…Why is it because to they know this.  That its unfixable and at nature will right now. Makes total sense to us. Actually it fall right into there Agenda 21 depopulation plan of reducing the Global population by 6.5 billion people. Many people are speculating based on the evidence that show that the earthquake on March 11 2011 was not a natural event but a pre planned attack with a submarine nuclear device detonation on the fault line on the ocean floor causing the also very suspect Tsunami that struck Japan that very same day. Why??? For saying no to the cabal’s extortion demands.There’s one story we found that stated that Benjamin Netanyahu(a cabal member)about 3 weeks after the event he went to japan and threatened that the next time it was Tokyo. This whole Fucking Fukushima Issue Stinks from the word Go. It stinks of Terrorism It stink of cover up It stinks of Conspiracy Its stinks as an attack on human population in general and it FUCKING STINKS of the Holy Royal Roman Merovingian Zionazi’s Masonic Mafia New World Order Empire’s” Criminal Scumbag Stench!!! Do you smell it??? We Most certainly do!!!

Now the latest   the Fukushima Daiichi Reactor 4’s Fuel Pool

Senator: Fukushima Fuel Pool Is a National Security Issue for AMERICA

Washington’s Blog
May 6, 2012

After visiting Fukushima, Senator Ron Wyden warned that the situation was worse than reported … andurged Japan to accept international help to stabilize dangerous spent fuel pools.

An international coalition of nuclear scientists and non-profit groups are calling on the U.N. to coordinate a multi-national effort to stabilize the fuel pools. And see this.

Fuel pool number 4 is, indeed, the top short-term threat facing humanity.

Anti-nuclear physician Dr. Helen Caldicott says that if fuel pool 4 collapses, she will evacuate her family from Boston and move them to the Southern Hemisphere. This is an especially dramatic statement given that the West Coast is much more directly in the pathof Fukushima radiation than the East Coast.

And nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen recently said (at 25:00):

There’s more cesium in that [Unit 4] fuel pool than in all 800 nuclear bombs exploded above ground…

But of course it would happen all at once.

It would certainly destroy Japan as a functioning country…

Move south of the equator if that ever happened, I think that’s probably the lesson there.

This week, Wyden said that the spent fuel is a national security threat to the U.S.:

AlterNet asked Sen. Wyden if he considers the spent fuel at Fukushima Daiichi a national security threat.

In a statement released by his office, Wyden replied, “The radiation caused by the failure of the spent fuel pools in the event of another earthquake could reach the West Coast within days. That absolutely makes the safe containment and protection of this spent fuel a security issue for the United States.”

[Robert Alvarez – a nuclear expert and a former special assistant to the United States Secretary of Energy] agrees, saying, “My major concern is that this effort to get that spent fuel out of there is not something you should be doing casually and taking your time on.”

Yet Tepco’s current plans are to hold the majority of this spent fuel onsite for years in the same elevated, uncontained storage pools, only transferring some of the fuel into more secure, hardened dry casks when the common pool reaches capacity.

Government Agencies Underplaying Risk … So No One Has to Do Anything Different

Why are American nuclear authorities ignoring this threat?

Well, they are totally captured by the nuclear industry, and:

Nuclear waste experts … charge that the NRC is letting this threat [of the Fukushima fuel pools] fester because acknowledging it would call into question safety at dozens of identically designed nuclear power plants around the U.S., which contain exceedingly higher volumes of spent fuel in similar elevated pools outside of reinforced containment.

***

In an interview with AlterNet, Alvarez … said that the Japanese government, Tepco and the U.S. NRC are reluctant to say anything publicly about the spent fuel threat because “there is a tendency to want to provide reassurance that everything is fine.”

***

“The U.S. government right now is engaged in its own kabuki theatre to protect the U.S. industry from the real costs of the lessons at Fukushima,” Gunter said. “The NRC and its champions in the White House and on Capitol Hill are looking to obfuscate the real threats and the necessary policy changes to address the risk.”

There are 31 G.E. Mark I and Mark II boiling water reactors (BRWs) in the U.S., the type used at Fukushima. All of these reactors, which comprise just under a third of all nuclear reactors in the U.S., store their spent fuel in elevated pools located outside the primary, or reinforced, containment that protects the reactor core. Thus, the outside structure, the building ostensibly protecting the storage pools, is much weaker, in most cases about as sturdy, experts describe in interviews with AlterNet, as a structure one would find housing a car dealership or a Wal-Mart.

Remember that American nuclear power plants are storing much more nuclear fuel rods in highly-vulnerable pools than even Fukushima.

The NRC and Japanese claim that fuel pool 4 has been stabilized, but:

Nuclear experts, including Arnie Gundersen, a former nuclear industry senior vice president who coordinated projects at 70 U.S. nuclear power plants, and warned days after the disaster at Fukushima last year of a “Chernobyl on steroids” if the spent fuel pools were to ignite, strongly disagreed with this assessment.

“It is true that in May and June the floor of the U4 SFP [spent fuel pool] was ‘reinforced,’ but not as strong as it was originally,” Gundersen noted in an email to AlterNet. “The entire building however has not been reinforced and is damaged by the explosion in both 4 and 3. So structurally U4 is not as strong as its original design required.”

***

Alvarez said that even if the unit 4 structure has been tentatively stabilized, it doesn’t change the fact “it sits in a structurally damaged building, is about 100 feet above the ground and is exposed to the atmosphere, in a high-consequence earthquake zone.”

He also said that the urgency of the situation is underscored by the ongoing seismic activity around northeast Japan, in which 13 earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 to 5.7 haveoccurred off the northeast coast of Honshu between April 14 and April 17.

“This has been the norm since 3/11/11 and larger quakes are expected closer to the power plant,” Alvarez added.

(Last year’s big earthquake made a huge earthquake close to Fukushima more likely.)

Boils Down to Money

Of course, it all boils down to money … just like every other crisis the world faces today.

Nuclear power can be safe, or it can be cheap … but it can’t be both. For example, we’ve previouslynoted:

Apologists for the nuclear power industry pretend there are no better alternatives, so we just have to suck it up and suffer through the Japanese nuclear crisis.

But this is wholly illogical. The truth is that we can store spent fuel rods in dry cask storage, which is much safer than the spent fuel rod pools used in Fukushima and many American reactors.

As the Nation pointed out:

Short of closing plants, there is a fairly reliable solution to the problem of spent fuel rods. It is called “dry cask storage.”

***

But there is a problem with dry cask storage: it costs money….

Indeed:

Experts say the only near-term answer to better protect our nation’s existing spent nuclear fuel is dry cask storage. But there’s one catch: the nuclear industry doesn’t want to incur the expense, which is about $1 million per cask.

“So now they’re stuck,” said Alvarez, “The NRC has made this policy decision, which the industry is very violently opposed to changing because it saves them a ton of money. And if they have to go to dry hardened storage onsite, they’re going to have to fork over several hundred million dollars per reactor to do this.”

He also pointed out that the contents of the nine dry casks at the Fukushima Daiichi site were undamaged by the disaster.

“Nobody paid much attention to that fact,” Alvarez said. “I’ve never seen anybody at Tepco or anyone [at the NRC or in the nuclear industry] saying, ‘Well, thank god for the dry casks. They were untouched.’ They don’t say a word about it.”

Get it?   The Japanese and American governments are playing Russian roulette with the fuel pools at Fukushima to save nuclear companies from having to spend a couple of million dollars to safely store spent fuel in dry casks.

Does Daiichi 4 Spell the End?: "Cesium-137 is 85 Times Greater Than at Chernobyl"

Fukushima Daiichi Site: Cesium-137 is 85 Times Greater Than at Chernobyl Accident

by Akio Matsumura l Finding the Missing Link

Japan’s former Ambassador to Switzerland, Mr. Mitsuhei Murata, was invited to speak at the Public Hearing of the Budgetary Committee of the House of Councilors on March 22, 2012, on the Fukushima nuclear power plants accident.

Ambassador Mitsuhei Murata

Before the Committee, Ambassador Murata strongly stated that if the crippled building of reactor unit 4—with 1,535 fuel rods in the spent fuel pool 100 feet (30 meters) above the ground—collapses, not only will it cause a shutdown of all six reactors but will also affect the common spent fuel pool containing 6,375 fuel rods, located some 50 meters from reactor 4.

In both cases the radioactive rods are not protected by a containment vessel; dangerously, they are open to the air.

This would certainly cause a global catastrophe like we have never before experienced.

[*Ed: This page was updated on 4/5/12 to reflect corrected calculations]

He stressed that the responsibility of Japan to the rest of the world is immeasurable. Such a catastrophe would affect us all for centuries. Ambassador Murata informed us that the total numbers of the spent fuel rods at the Fukushima Daiichi site excluding the rods in the pressure vessel is 11,421 (396+615+566+1,535+994+940+6375).

I asked top spent-fuel pools expert Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy, for an explanation of the potential impact of the 11,421 rods.

I received an astounding response from Mr. Alvarez [updated 4/5/12]:

In recent times, more information about the spent fuel situation at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site has become known.  It is my understanding that of the 1,532 spent fuel assemblies in reactor No. 304 assemblies are fresh and unirradiated. This then leaves 1,231 irradiated spent fuel rods in pool No. 4, which contain roughly 37 million curies (~1.4E+18 Becquerel) of long-lived radioactivity.  The No. 4 pool is about 100 feet above ground, is structurally damaged and is exposed to the open elements. If an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 released by the Chernobyl accident.

The infrastructure to safely remove this material was destroyed as it was at the other three reactors.  Spent reactor fuel cannot be simply lifted into the air by a crane as if it were routine cargo.  In order to prevent severe radiation exposures, fires and possible explosions, it must be transferred at all times in water and heavily shielded structures into dry casks.. As this has never been done before, the removal of the spent fuel from the pools at the damaged Fukushima-Dai-Ichi reactors will require a major and time-consuming re-construction effort and will be charting in unknown waters. Despite the enormous destruction cased at the Da–Ichi site, dry casks holding a smaller amount of spent fuel  appear to be unscathed.

Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity. About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 —roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-Daichi site contains nearly half of  the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel).

It is important for the public to understand that reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet.

Many of our readers might find it difficult to appreciate the actual meaning of the figure, yet we can grasp what 85 times more Cesium-137 than the Chernobyl would mean. It would destroy the world environment and our civilization. This is not rocket science, nor does it connect to the pugilistic debate over nuclear power plants. This is an issue of human survival.

There was a Nuclear Security Summit Conference in Seoul on March 26 and 27, and Ambassador Murata and I made a concerted effort to find someone to inform the participants from 54 nations of the potential global catastrophe of reactor unit 4. We asked several participants to share the idea of an Independent Assessment team comprised of a broad group of international experts to deal with this urgent issue.

I would like to introduce Ambassador Murata’s letter to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to convey this urgent message and also his letter to Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda for Japanese readers. He emphasized in the statement that we should bring human wisdom to tackle this unprecedented challenge.

It seems to us that the Nuclear Security Summit was focused on the North Korea nuclear issue and on the issue of common security from a terrorist attack. Our appeal on the need for the independent assessment at Reactor 4 was regarded as less urgent. We predicted this outcome in light of the nature of the Summit. I suppose most participants fully understood the potential disaster which will affect their countries. Nevertheless, they decided not to raise the delicate issue, perhaps in order to not ruffle their diplomatic relationship with Japan.

I was moved by Ambassador Murata’s courage in pressing this issue in Japan. I know how difficult it is for a former career diplomat to do this, especially in my country.  Current and former government officials might be similarly restricted in the scope of their actions, as Ambassador Murata is, but it is their responsibility to take a stand for the benefit of our descendants for centuries to come—to pass on a world safer than our ancestors passed us.

If Japanese government leaders do not recognize the risk their nation faces, how could the rest of us be persuaded of the looming disaster? And if the rest of us do not acknowledge the catastrophe we collectively face, who will be the one to act?

Tokyo, March 25, 2012

Dear Secretary-General, Honorable Ban Ki-moon,

I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude for your considerate letter dated 2 March, 2012. Your moral support for a United Nations Ethics Summit will remain a constant source of encouragement for my activities.

Please allow me to pay a tribute to your great contribution to strengthen nuclear safety and security. The current Nuclear Summit in Seoul is no doubt greatly benefiting from the high-level meeting you convened last September.

I was asked to make a statement at the public hearing of the Budgetary Committee of the House of Councilors on March 23. I raised the crucial problem. of N0.4 reactor of Fukushima containing1535 fuel rods. It could be fatally damaged by continuing aftershocks. Moreover, 50 meters away from it exists a common cooling pool for 6 reactors containing 6375 fuel rods!

It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on NO.4 reactor. This is confirmed by most reliable experts like Dr. Arnie Gundersen or Dr. Fumiaki Koide.

Please allow me to inform you of an initiative being taken by a former UN official who is endeavoring to have the Nuclear Security Summit take up the crucial problem. of N0.4 reactor of Fukushima. He is pursuing the establishment of an independent assessment team. I think his efforts are very significant, because it is indispensable to draw the attention of world leaders to this vital issue.

I am cooperating with him, writing to some of my Korean acquaintances that this issue deserves the personal attention of President Lee Myung-bak. I have written today to Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda. I asked him to consider taking the initiative of mobilizing human wisdom on the widest scope to cope with the Fukushima reactor No.4 problem, fully taking into account the above-mentioned “independent assessment team”.

The world has been made so fragile and vulnerable. The role of the United Nations is increasingly vital. I wish you the best of luck in your noble mission. Please accept, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Mitsuhei Murata

If this article does not show the severity of this issue to you!!!  Again I must say you have had to much Fluoride, Aspartame, Fructose, MSG and its done its job and numb you to anything. But for the rest of us we must shoot this important news at the top of our lungs to everyone you know on Facebook this is real shit and it is happening right now. One earthquake could deliver humanity its fate…The effort that has to be mounted by humanity must immediate and massive as we have learned above you don’t just pick them up with a crane and move them They must be moved and keep cooled at all time in water. This is a  mammoth undertaking that must start BEFORE ASAP. We the people of earth need to make ourselves heard and our voice must be loud and many to actually scare these scumbag representatives into actually doing something or we must be heard by the nuclear community of Scientist and Engineers and move them to take action. Then there’s the  moral rich motivate them to take action too. We need TV and Movie star hockey and football and all other game players to speak out to!!!We need to spread this topic FAST and LOUD as it could very well be our last topic ever for mankind IF WE DON’T ACT SOON

Reactor 4 : Spent fuel pool was boiling without water after 1/1/2012

Posted by Mochizuki on January 8th, 2012 ·

Reactor 4 at Fukushima Daiichi

The blogger woman in Minamisoma leaked information from an actual Fukushima worker.
According to her post, after the earthquake of 1/1/2012, the pipe of spent fuel pool for reactor 4 was broken, the pool completely lost its water.

The worker stated, Sooner or later, the truth will have to to be widely known. Believe it or not, you will only regret. Wear a mask at least.

The pool was boiling without water.

Water level is still decreasing at reactor 4

Posted by Mochizuki on January 8th, 2012 · From the article of Tokyo newspaper(1/8/2012 JST), it turned out that the decreasing water level problem at reactor 4 was not stopped, it has been on-going at least until 1/7/2012.
It is assumed that the water in the cooling system is flowing into the container vessel instead.
Because nothing has been done to this trouble caused by the earthquake of 1/1/2012, the water will keep flowing into the container vessel. M4~5 level of the earthquake has started to happen frequently around Fukushima plants. We still need to keep our eyes on the reactors.

4号機タンクの水位低下

2012年1月8日
一月一~七日の一週間、福島第一原発では、一日午後に4号機の使用済み核燃料プールに隣接したタンクの水位が急に下がった。直前に東北や関東で震度4を記録した地震の影響とみられる。
タンクの水は蒸発で減るが、この時は通常時の約五倍のペースで低下。当初、東京電力は水漏れを疑った。その後の調査で、水漏れはなく、地震の影響により、プールからタンクに流れ込む水が一時的に止まっていただけの可能性が高いと分かった。
一方、高濃度汚染水を処理した水が流れるホースに雑草のチガヤが刺さり、小さな穴から水漏れを起こす現象に現場は悩まされてきた。東電が集計したところ、昨年七月以降、二十二件もあった。
原子炉への循環式注水は長期にわたって続ける必要があり、こうした小さな問題は早いうちに解決しておくことが重要。東電は対応策を練っている。

Correspondence on the New Photo of Reactor Unit no. 4 at Fukushima

February 21, 2012

This letter is now available in Japanese.

Dear Akio –

This photo is quite sobering. As you know the pool at Unit No. 4 contains 1,538 fuel assemblies, including a full core that was freshly discharged prior to the accident.

The Fourth Reactor at Fukushima on February 20, 2012. The yellow area is the containment vessel. –The Asahi Shimbum Digital

As I might have mentioned, based on data from the U.S. Department of Energy, a spent fuel assembly from a typical boiling water reactor contains about 30,181 curies ( ~1.1E+15 becquerels) of long-lived radioactivity. So the Unit No. 4 pool contains roughly 49 million curies (~1.8E+18 Bq), of which about 40 percent if Cs-137.  (Source:  U.S. Department of Energy, Final Environmental Impact Statement, for a Geologic Repository for the Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuel and High-Level Radioactive Waste at Yucca Mountain, Nye County, Nevada, 2002, Appendix A, Tables A-7, A-8, A-9, A-10, BWR/ Burn up = 36,600 MWd/MTHM, enrichment = 3.03 percent, decay time = 23 years.)
As you know,  the risk of yet another highly destructive earthquake occurring even closer to the Fukushima reactors has increased, according to the European Geosciences Union.  This is particularly worrisome for Daiichi’s structurally damaged spent fuel pool at Reactor No. 4 sitting 100 feet above ground, exposed to the elements. Drainage of water from this pool, resulting from another quake could trigger a catastrophic radiological fire involving about eight times more radioactive cesium than released at Chernobyl.
Best Regards,
Bob Alvarez
Dear  Bob:
I thank you very much for your comments on the photo of the Fukushima reactor unit 4.
You and Dr. Gordon Edwards of Canada used the same word, “sobering,” when you saw the photo.
My great concern is what Dr. Hans-Peter Durr, former Director of Astrophysics at the Max Planck Institute in Germany told me ten months ago. Japan had not yet admitted the core had melted down, but Hans-Peter knew that Fukushima was close to bringing us beyond the limits of our scientific knowledge and strongly suggested that Japan’s government should create an independent assessment team to bring the best minds of the nuclear scientists and structural engineers to seek the best solution. In such circumstances, Dr. Edwards accurately said, “It is important to seek the advice of experts who are genuinely independent having no conflict of interest and no need to save face. National pride makes it understandably difficult to seek help from outside, but sometimes it is the best thing to do.”
I have to admit that my country’s strong national pride makes it unrealistic to see an independent assessment team form soon enough, and so I now turn to rely on U.S. leadership to act out of the need for common, global security before a strong earthquake comes in the near future.  If the reactor unit 4 building collapses, we will face a global environmental and human catastrophe larger than ever before.
I ask you and your colleagues to help bring this to the attention of U.S. senators and representatives so we may overcome the political hurdles and find a constructive solution.
Yours truly,
Akio

Global Research Editor’s Note
This detailed report by our Contributor Washington Blog must be read very carefully.

The World is at a critical crossroads. The Fukushima disaster in Japan has brought to the forefront the dangers of Worldwide nuclear radiation. The crisis in Japan has been described as "a nuclear war without a war".
Nuclear radiation –which threatens life on planet earth– is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities. 
The implications of this report must be understood. Public opinion worldwide must be informed so that meaningful actions can be taken without delay in support of the Japanese teams.
Spread the word. Forward this report far and wide. Post it on Facebook.
It is essential to put pressure at all levels of government, nationally and internationally to take all actions necessary to avert an impending catastrophe, which in a very real sense threatens the future of humanity.

Fukushima: A Nuclear War without a War: The Unspoken Crisis of Worldwide Nuclear Radiation

- by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky – 2012-01-25

GR ONLINE READER. The dumping of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean constitutes a potential trigger to a process of global radioactive contamination… Eventually all major regions of the World will be affected.


"Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity. About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 — roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-Daichi site contains nearly half of the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel). It is important for the public to understand that reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet." (Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy)
The Greatest Single Threat to Humanity: Fuel Pool Number 4
We noted days after the Japanese earthquake that the biggest threat was from the spent fuel rods in the fuel pool at Fukushima unit number 4, and not from the reactors themselves. See this and this.We noted in February:

Scientists say that there is a 70% chance of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hitting Fukushima this year, and a 98% chance within the next 3 years.

Given that nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen says that an earthquake of 7.0 or larger could cause the entire fuel pool structure collapse, it is urgent that everything humanly possible is done to stabilize the structure housing the fuel pools at reactor number 4.

Tepco is doing some construction at the building … it is a race against time under very difficult circumstances, and hopefully Tepco will win.

As AP points out:

The structural integrity of the damaged Unit 4 reactor building has long been a major concern among experts because a collapse of its spent fuel cooling poolcould cause a disaster worse than the three reactor meltdowns.

***

Gundersen (who used to build spent fuel pools) explains that there is no protection surrounding the radioactive fuel in the pools. He warns that – if the fuel pools at reactor 4 collapse due to an earthquake – people should get out of Japan, and residents of the West Coast of America and Canada should shut all of their windows and stay inside for a while.

The fuel pool number 4 is apparently not in great shape, and there have already been countless earthquakes near the Fukushima region since the 9.0 earthquake last March.

Germany’s ZDF tv quotes nuclear engineer Yukitero Naka as saying:

If another earthquake occurs then the building [number 4] could collapse and another chain reaction could very likely occur.

(Unit 4 contains plutonium as well as other radioactive wastes.)

Mainchi reported on Monday:

The storage pool in the No. 4 reactor building has a total of 1,535 fuel rods, or 460 tons of nuclear fuel, in it. The 7-story building itself has suffered great damage, with the storage pool barely intact on the building’s third and fourth floors. The roof has been blown away. If the storage pool breaks and runs dry, the nuclear fuel inside will overheat and explode, causing a massive amount of radioactive substances to spread over a wide area. Both the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and French nuclear energy company Areva have warned about this risk.

A report released in February by the Independent Investigation Commission on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident stated that the storage pool of the plant’s No. 4 reactor has clearly been shown to be “the weakest link” in the parallel, chain-reaction crises of the nuclear disaster. The worse-case scenario drawn up by the government includes not only the collapse of the No. 4 reactor pool, but the disintegration of spent fuel rods from all the plant’s other reactors. If this were to happen, residents in the Tokyo metropolitan area would be forced to evacuate.

Former Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Sumio Mabuchi, who was appointed to the post of then Prime Minister Naoto Kan’s advisor on the nuclear disaster immediately after its outbreak, proposed the injection of concrete from below the No. 4 reactor to the bottom of the storage pool, Chernobyl-style.

***

“Because sea water was being pumped into the reactor, the soundness of the structure (concrete corrosion and deterioration) was questionable. There also weredoubts about the calculations made on earthquake resistance as well,” said one government source familiar with what took place at the time. “[F]uel rod removal will take three years. Will the structure remain standing for that long?

Asahi noted last month that – if Unit 4 pool gets a crack from an earthquake and leaks, it would be the end for Tokyo.

Kevin Kamps said last month:

Unit 4 storage pool… The entire building is listing including the pool. What they have is steel jacks underneath the pool to try to keep the floor from falling out or the pool from flipping over.

If that cooling water supply is lost, it will be just a few hours at most before that waste is on fire. 135 tons outside of any radioactive containment. They would be direct releases into the environment. 100% of cesium-137 could be released to the environment.

Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear joins Thom Hartmann. More than a year into the nuclear crisis at Fukushima – radiation levels have now reached their highest point yet. What does all this mean – and what should nuclear supporters in America be taking away from the continuing crisis?

Former U.N. adviser Akio Matsumura – whose praises have been sung by Mikhail Gorbachev, U.S. Ambassadors Stephen Bosworth and Glenn Olds, and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State and Goldman Sachs co-chair John C. Whitehead – notes:

The unit suffered enormous damage during the tsunami—a hydrogen explosion blew the roof off, leaving the highly radioactive fuel pool exposed to the open air. If another high level earthquake hits the area, the building will certainly collapse. Japanese and American meteorologists have predicted that such a strong earthquake is indeed likely to hit this year.

The meltdown and unprecedented release of radiation that would ensue is the worst case scenario that then-Prime Minister Kan and other former officials have discussed in the past months. He warned during his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos that such an accident would force the evacuation of the 35 million people in Tokyo, close half of Japan and compromise the nation’s sovereignty. Such a humanitarian and environmental catastrophe is unimaginable. Hiroshi Tasaka, a nuclear engineer and special adviser to Prime Minister Kan immediately following the crisis, said the crisis “just opened Pandora’s Box.”

The current Japanese government has not yet mentioned the looming disaster, ostensibly to not incite panic in the public. Nevertheless, action must be taken quickly. This website over the last year has published a running commentary from scientists explaining why Reactor 4 must be stabilized immediately, who might be able to accomplish such a task, and why the situation has largely gone unnoticed. We believe an independent, international team of structural engineers and other advisers must be assembled and deployed immediately. Mounting public pressure would force the Japanese government to take action. We hope these resources are helpful in educating the public about the crisis that we face.

As the eminent German physicist Dr. Hans-Peter Durr said ten months ago, if the spent fuel pool spills, we will be in a situation where science never imagined we could be.

Matsumura was told that if the fuel pool at unit 4 collapses or the water spills out, so much radiation will spew out for 50 years that no one will be able to approach Fukushima:

Akio Matsumura talks about nuclear power plants, spent fuel pools, and the trouble with Reactor 4 at Fukushima.

Even more dramatically, Matsumura writes:

Japan’s former Ambassador to Switzerland, Mr. Mitsuhei Murata, was invited to speak at the Public Hearing of the Budgetary Committee of the House of Councilors on March 22, 2012, on the Fukushima nuclear power plants accident. Before the Committee, Ambassador Murata strongly stated that if the crippled building of reactor unit 4—with 1,535 fuel rods in the spent fuel pool 100 feet (30 meters) above the ground—collapses, not only will it cause a shutdown of all six reactors but will also affect the common spent fuel pool containing 6,375 fuel rods, located some 50 meters from reactor 4. In both cases the radioactive rods are not protected by a containment vessel; dangerously, they are open to the air. This would certainly cause a global catastrophe like we have never before experienced. He stressed that the responsibility of Japan to the rest of the world is immeasurable. Such a catastrophe would affect us all for centuries. Ambassador Murata informed us that the total numbers of the spent fuel rods at the Fukushima Daiichi site excluding the rods in the pressure vessel is 11,421 (396+615+566+1,535+994+940+6375).

I asked top spent-fuel pools expert Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy, for an explanation of the potential impact of the 11,421 rods.

I received an astounding response from Mr. Alvarez [updated 4/5/12]:

In recent times, more information about the spent fuel situation at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site has become known. It is my understanding that of the 1,532 spent fuel assemblies in reactor No. 304 assemblies are fresh and unirradiated. This then leaves 1,231 irradiated spent fuel rods in pool No. 4, which contain roughly 37 million curies (~1.4E+18 Becquerel) of long-lived radioactivity. The No. 4 pool is about 100 feet above ground, is structurally damaged and is exposed to the open elements. If an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 released by the Chernobyl accident.

The infrastructure to safely remove this material was destroyed as it was at the other three reactors. Spent reactor fuel cannot be simply lifted into the air by a crane as if it were routine cargo. In order to prevent severe radiation exposures, fires and possible explosions, it must be transferred at all times in water and heavily shielded structures into dry casks.. As this has never been done before, the removal of the spent fuel from the pools at the damaged Fukushima-Dai-Ichi reactors will require a major and time-consuming re-construction effort and will be charting in unknown waters. Despite the enormous destruction cased at the Da–Ichi site, dry casks holding a smaller amount of spent fuel appear to be unscathed.

Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity. About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 — roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-Daichi site contains nearly half of the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel).

It is important for the public to understand that reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet.

Many of our readers might find it difficult to appreciate the actual meaning of the figure, yet we can grasp what 85 times more Cesium-137 than the Chernobyl would mean. It would destroy the world environment and our civilization. This is not rocket science, nor does it connect to the pugilistic debate over nuclear power plants. This is an issue of human survival.

There was a Nuclear Security Summit Conference in Seoul on March 26 and 27, and Ambassador Murata and I made a concerted effort to find someone to inform the participants from 54 nations of the potential global catastrophe of reactor unit 4. We asked several participants to share the idea of an Independent Assessment team comprised of a broad group of international experts to deal with this urgent issue.

I would like to introduce Ambassador Murata’s letter to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to convey this urgent message and also his letter to Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda for Japanese readers. He emphasized in the statement that we should bring human wisdom to tackle this unprecedented challenge.

Ambassador Murata’s letter says:

It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on NO.4 reactor. This is confirmed by most reliable experts like Dr. Arnie Gundersen or Dr. Fumiaki Koide.

Anti-nuclear physician Dr. Helen Caldicott says that if fuel pool 4 collapses, she will evacuate her family from Boston and move them to the Southern Hemisphere. This is an especially dramatic statement given that the West Coast is much more directly in the path of Fukushima radiation than the East Coast.

Will humanity rise to the occasion, and figure out how to stabilize fuel pool number 4 before catastrophe strikes?

Or will modern civilization win a Darwin award for failing to pay attention to the real threats?

Fukushima reactor No. 4 vulnerable to catastrophic collapse; could unleash 85 times Cesium-137 radiation of Chernobyl; human civilization on the brink

Sunday, May 06, 2012

(NaturalNews) The news you are about to read puts everything else in the category of "insignificant" by comparison. Concerned about the 2012 U.S. presidential election? Worried about GMOs? Fluoride? Vaccines? Secret prisons?None of that even mattersif we don’t solve the problem of Fukushima reactor No. 4, which is on the verge of a catastrophic failure that could unleash enough radiation toend human civilizationon our planet. (See the numbers below.)
The resulting releasing of radiation would turn North America into a "dead zone" for humans… mutated (and failed) crops, radioactive groundwater, skyrocketing infant mortality, an explosion in cancer and infertility… this is what could be unleashed at any moment from an earthquake in Japan. Such an event could result in the release of85 times the Cesium-137 released by the Chernobyl catastrophe, say experts (see below). And the Chernobyl catastrophe made its surrounding regionsuninhabitable by humans for centuries.
Yet, astonishingly, the usual suspects of deception are saying absolutely nothing about this problem. The mainstream media (the dying dinosaur media, actually) pretends there’s no problem with Fukushima. President Obama says nothing about it. Federal regulators, including the NRC, are all but silent. It’s as if they think their silence on the issue somehow makes it go away.
Perhaps these professional liars in the media and government have become so used to idea that they can simply spin their own reality (and get the public suckers to believe almost anything) that they now believe they can ignore the laws of physics. That’s why they have refused to cover thelow-level radiation plumethat continues to be emitted from Fukushima.

The fate of the world now rests on reactor No. 4

"It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on No.4 reactor." – Mitsuhei Murata, Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland and Senegal, Executive Director, the Japan Society for Global System and Ethics
Mr. Murata’s stunning statement should be front-page news everywhere around the world. Why? Becausehe’s right. If reactor No. 4 suffers even a minor earthquake, it could set off a chain reaction of events that quickly lead toNorth America becoming uninhabitable by humansfor centuries to come. Imagine California, Oregon and Washington states being inundated with radiation — up to85 times the radiation release from Chernobyl. We’re talking about the end of human life on the scale of continents.
Here’s how this could happen, according to Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy:
"The No. 4 pool is about 100 feet above ground, is structurally damaged and is exposed to the open elements. If an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 released by the Chernobyl accident. The infrastructure to safely remove this material was destroyed as it was at the other three reactors. Spent reactor fuel cannot be simply lifted into the air by a crane as if it were routine cargo. In order to prevent severe radiation exposures, fires and possible explosions, it must be transferred at all times in water and heavily shielded structures into dry casks. As this has never been done before, the removal of the spent fuel from the pools at the damaged Fukushima-Dai-Ichi reactors will require a major and time-consuming re-construction effort and will be charting in unknown waters."(http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/forum/218/nuclear-expert-fukushima-spent-…)
Note: He says "10 times" the Cesium-137 of Chernobyl. Others say up to 85 times. Nobody is 100% certain of what would actually occur because this has never happened before. We are inuncharted territoryas a civilization, facing a unique and imminent threat to our continued survival. And both governments and the corporations that assured us nuclear power was safe are playing their "cover my ass" games while the world waits in the crosshairs of a nuclear apocalypse.

Fukushima Facts

To better understand the severity of this situation, read these facts about Fukushima reactor No. 4 which I have assembled from available news sources:
• Reactor #4 contains 1,535 spent fuel rods which remain highly radioactive.
• These fuel rods currently hold the potential to emit37 million curiesof radiation.
• Those fuel rods are stored in a concrete pool located 100 feet above the ground, inside the structurally compromised reactor building, effectively making the pool open to the air.
• The pool holding these fuel rods is "structurally damaged."
• "If an earthquake or other event were to cause this pool to drain this could result in a catastrophic radiological fire involving nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 released by the Chernobyl accident." – Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy.
• "The infrastructure to safely remove this material was destroyed as it was at the other three reactors." – Mr. Alvarez.
• Just 50 meters from reactor No. 4, a much larger pool of spent fuel rods contains 6,375 fuel rods, all of which remain highly radioactive.
• All these fuel rods are, astonishingly, exposed to the open air. They are not held inside any containment vessel.
• The total number of spent fuel rods across all six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi site is 11,421.
• If reactor No. 4 suffers a structural failure, the release of radiation from the 1,535 spent fuel rods would make it virtually impossible for work to continue on the site, potentially resulting in an inability to halt a massive radiation release from all the other rods.
• In all, the 11,421 fuel rods held at the Fukushima Daiichi facility contain roughly336 million curiesof "long-lived radioactivity." Roughly 134 million curies of that isCesium-137.
• "Reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet." – Mr. Robert Alvarez, U.S. Dept. of Energy
• This amount of Cesium-137 radioactivity held in the full collection of fuel rods at Fukushima is85 times the amount released at Chernobyl.
• The release of this amount of Cesium-137 would "destroy the world environment and our civilization. This is an issue of human survival." (http://akiomatsumura.com/2012/04/682.html)
• The mainstream media operates in atotal blackoutof this news, refusing to even acknowledge the existence of this immediate threat to human civilization.
• The mainstream media is, in large part, owned by General Electric, the very company that designed the Fukushima reactors in the first place. It is clear that GE is diligently running atotal media blackouton this news in order to cover its own ass and prevent people from asking questions about the faulty engineering and nuclear facility site selection that led to this catastrophe.

18,000 dead so far and hundreds of millions at risk: The media cover-up

"The executive branch and multiple federal agencies, agencies tasked with keeping the American public safe, did their best to hide and to cover-up information about a deadly radioactive plume and ensuing fallout that was headed for the West Coast of the United States from Japan," says Alexander Higgins. (http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2012/03/01/plumegate-media-silent-fe…)
He goes on to state "The evidence obtained in the FOIA request indicates that right from the start, the NRC had a clear idea of the significance of the disaster that was unfolding, but concealed the truth from the American public. The results of the plume and fallout can be measured in the rise of infant mortality rates: cells of unborn and newborn children are dividing at a much higher rate than those of a mature adult, thus the amount of damage is greatly increased and hence more detectable. Conservative estimates place the number of stillborn following the Fukushima accident at over 18,000."
See the FOIA documents here:
http://www.houseoffoust.com/NRC/ML11269A172.pdf
and here:
http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML1205/ML12052A106.pdf
The conspiracy cover-up of the radioactive plumes still being emitted from Fukushima is now being called "Plume-Gate." This issue needs to be front and center on all our radar screens. There may quite literally be nothing more important for the survival of the human race than dealing with this runaway issue of Fukushima radiation in the immediate term, and the larger issue of the scientific fraud of nuclear power "safety" thereafter.
As Higgins explains, "It is this author’s opinion that any media source not shouting about Plume-Gate as loud as they can are likely controlled by the powers-that-be." He’s got a point. Thisshouldbe our No. 1 issue, and NaturalNews is re-shifting priorities right now to help raise the alarm on the impeding Fukushima disaster for the obvious reason thateverything else pales in comparisonto the importance of dealing with this.

Take action now

Although I hate to call for the UN to do anything at all, as it is a criminal globalist organization engaged in widespread sex slave trafficking, child abuse and mass murder, the UN definitely has some pull with governments around the world. The petition linked below calls for the UN to take immediate, decisive action to deal with Fukushima reactor No. 4 before it’s too late and we all get "Fuk’ed" beyond repair.
http://fukushima.greenaction-japan.org/2012/05/01/an-urgent-request-o…
This petition calls for two actions:
1. The United Nations should organize a Nuclear Security Summit to take up the crucial problem of the Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 spent nuclear fuel pool.
2. The United Nations should establish an independent assessment team on Fukushima Daiichi Unit 4 and coordinate international assistance in order to stabilize the unit’s spent nuclear fuel and prevent radiological consequences with potentially catastrophic consequences.
Here at NaturalNews, although we hold the UN in contempt for its globalist actions and crimes against humanity, we nevertheless support this particular petition and the urgent effort for the UN to actually do something positive for a change. In fact, if the UN ignores this issue, that itself would be the greatest crime of all against humanity, for failure to solve this reactor No. 4 situation could mean the end of human civilization as we know it.
NaturalNews will continue to cover this issue, especially focusing on reactor No. 4. We are reaching out to Higgins and Gunderson to conduct more interviews on this subject. Watch for more coverage here at NaturalNews.com.

Benjamin Fulford’s Explanation
Of The Fukushima Disaster on the Jeff Rense Program

Entire Transcript of Benjamin Fulford’s appearance on the Jeff Rense Program of May 25th, 9-10pm Pacific.

 
Rense: OK, and we’re back. Let’s get into hour number three and go over to Tokyo, and talk to Ben Fulford. We’re going to get a bird’s eye look from Ben about the current state of affairs in Tokyo, where, as you know, they have found radioactivity in the Tokyosewage sludge in the wastewater treatment plants ­ at least one location. It rivals that of wastewater treatment plants that had been also identified as being radioactive in the Fukushima prefecture in the area of the plant, but actually outside of it. It’s a big story. Meanwhile, another prefecture, the governor of that prefecture said he will not test his tea – his bulk tea crop – there’s nothing wrong with it, there’s no reason to ­ and he had ten-year-old children go out and pick it, and they got to eat some tempura made from it, like they had a choice. Things are getting crazy over there. The economy of Japan is obviously in very serious condition. I don’t know how to articulate it much better than that, because I’m not a financial expert. We do cover the stories. They’re hard news. There’s just an awful lot of very sad things underway there. Ben, are you there?
 
Fulford: Yeah, I’m here (cough). Listen, (cough) I’m sorry but I have to disagree with you completely on all of that ­
 
Rense: Well, you know, it’s not me, I’m, all I’m doing is ­
 
Fulford: I have my own Geiger counter, and I’m telling you, it’s still the same here ­
 
Rense: Ben, wait a minute. No one said that Geiger counters were needed. This is stories from the Japanese press ­
 
Fulford: Yeah, I know there’s a sewage sludge story.
 
Rense: OK.
 
Fulford: They’re finding this stuff, you can find it when they, when they, you know this is probably just illegal disposal of medical equipment, if you ask me. But, the news coverage here is very thorough, very exact, very scientific, and ­
 
Rense: Well, all it does is ­
 
Fulford (shouting over Rense): and you as far as I am concerned are panic-mongering on this issue big time, and you should not be doing so.
 
Rense: Now, hold on, now wait a minute ­
 
Fulford (shouting over Rense): I want to get my word out here!
 
Rense: Now ­
 
Fulford (shouting over Rense): You interrupt me, too much, Mr. Rense.
 
Rense (modulation instructions): OK, turn him down, turn him down.
 
Fulford (shouting louder): The economy here, the damage happened, OK? Economics ­
 
Rense: Ben, Ben, Ben ­ you can’t
 
Fulford (shouting): the facts ­
 
Rense: (modulation instructions to the network): Turn him down. You are not allowed to make accusations and then walk all over who ever it is. If you want to make an accusation on this program, you can then stand back and allow a response. I am reporting the news from Japan’s sources, from international sources, from individuals such as Yoichi Shimatsu in Hong Kong. I am not making this up. No one suggested you needed a Geiger counter in Tokyo. No one suggested the air in Tokyo was radioactive. I mentioned a radioactive reading in a sewage treatment plant in Tokyo that rivaled the amount in Fukushima prefecture, those are facts. Now, go ahead, Ben.
 
Fulford: (still shouting): Alright!! Now, I just, I thought, I just quickly on the economy because I have much more important things to talk about as far as I’m concerned. But just on the economy, what happened is, the damage took place all in a matter of a couple of hours.
 
Rense: Right.
 
Fulford: (shouting): After that, the statistics will measure that a month, two months, three months from now, but it’s already over. What’s happening now is the reconstruction, so, you know ­
 
Rense: Reconstruction of what, Ben? Excuse me, I’m not following you. Reconstruction of what?
 
Fulford: (shouting) What I’m trying to say is, when the people in the markets begin to think about the Japanese production being down,
 
Rense: Uh-huh
 
Fulford: Or the GDP going minus or stuff, right?
 
Rense: Right.
 
Fulford: What they’re doing is measuring several months, what happened several months ago. And that, what happened several months ago, happened within an hour or two. OK?
 
Rense: Well, certainly less than ­ certainly less than 24 hours, yes.
 
Fulford: OK, well the point is that the ­ the damage took place in a very short period of time, and a lot was destroyed. Factories were destroyed, homes were destroyed, all that was destroyed when that happened, and that happened all at once, and it was a very tragic thing. But, from the economic point of view, when you look at statistics now, and you think Oh, Japan’s economy is in trouble, then you’re missing the reality, which is the trouble ended in the 24-hour period, and what happens now is the reconstruction. What that means is they’re going to have to build lots of houses, they’re going to fill those houses with appliances, they’re going to have to build new roads, they are going to have to rebuild factories. So, in other words, the future is not gloomy. It’s just a nasty thing happened in the past. People need to understand Japan is not in trouble, and it is not in such a deep mess.
 
Rense: I admire what you’re saying ­
 
Fulford: As far as I’m concerned ­
 
Rense: Alright, go ahead.
 
Fulford: Is the arrest of the head of the IMF
 
Rense: Mm hmm
 
Fulford: On charges of molesting a maid ­
 
Rense: Well, they’ve got to nail the DNA, but the guy was obviously ­ well, he had a predilection for sexual escapades that was well known, and he may have been set up. We don’t know that but please, since you’re in Tokyo and in Japan, I need you as a resource and an asset here to help us understand ­
 
Fulford: (shouting) Yeah, but I’m involved with stuff – YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND SOMETHING! I’m directly involved with the people who organized Strauss-Kahn’s arrest. OK?
 
Rense: You are???
 
Fulford: I’m not reading it on the internet, I’m talking about the people who arranged the arrest, and if you do not understand about that and about me and the position I’m in, then you don’t know what’s going on!
 
Rense: Well, how can I if you don’t tell us?
 
Fulford: (shouting) Well, I’m telling you!!! Right now!!!
 
Rense: Well, lower your voice, and calm down, and
 
Fulford: (shouting) (garbled)
 
Rense: And be
 
Fulford: Strauss-Kahn is part of an ongoing battle over the future of the financial system, which you know about, about the FDR special drawing rights ­
 
Rense: Mm-hmm.
 
Fulford: the dollar, and the Euro and the Euro crisis,
 
Rense: OK.
 
Fulford: This is very historical, important stuff, and I really need to explain this this week, because it’s coming to a head. What people need to understand, is that most of the Euros and dollars being printed in recent years are not backed by anything real.
 
Rense: Right.
 
Fulford: OK? And that means that, you know, if you look at the old cartoons, the Road Runner, or the coyote in mid-air, he’s still running and doesn’t realize that there’s nothing under him ­
 
Rense: Right.
 
Fulford: And what happened with Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was that they have been trying to get what little money is left, and there’s like a fight over the real stuff, the stuff that was actually burned by people making things, putting actual money in the bank and not by trading out of thin air, by derivatives or other forms of fraud ­
 
Rense: Mm-hmm.
 
Fulford: Any my sources, who include people, you know, involved in the Federal Reserve Board, and the European central banks at the highest levels, are telling me that Strauss-Kahn was trying to get his hands on the American Social Security money in order to pay off the Euro, the bail out for parts to go in these other countries. Now, you notice they’re talking about a new European to head the IMS, uh, maybe a French lady or something.
 
Rense: Right.
 
Fulford: But the fact of the matter is that if Europe is to be bailed out, they are going to need to borrow money from Asian countries
 
Rense: Mm-hmm.
 
Fulford: From Middle Eastern countries.
 
Rense: Mm-hmm.
 
Fulford: From countries that actually have money they earned by exporting real things, such as oil and cars and toys.
 
Rense: Right.
 
Fulford: And what’s happened is that the Asian and other countries of the world have said to the Europeans and the Americans, ‘Look, you guys have been leeching off us for 30 years now,’ and when I say that, what I mean is that they run, with the exception of Germany and Northern Europe, they have run external trade deficits for about that long. Especially the United States. In other words, they have been buying stuff they can’t pay for for 30 years. And now, everyone has said, we are not going to lend you any more money. You people really need to understand this. So, we talk about a Greek crisis or a Portuguese crisis, it’s not a crisis of, you know, some weird financial thing. The fact of the matter is, these people have been spending more than they earned, and now they are asking their northern cousins to bail them out ­
 
Rense: Right.
 
Fulford: And the northern cousins don’t have enough money to bail them out
 
Rense: That’s true.
 
Fulford: And the Asians aren’t going to bail them out ­
 
Rense: Let’s hope not ­
 
Fulford: They are going to do it directly. They are not going to do it via a European controlled institution like the International Monetary Fund. So ­
 
Rense: Is there ­ Ben ­ is there any tie-in with Sarkozy and running for the alleged office of president of France?
 
Fulford: Well, sure. I mean, Sarkozy had a good interest in having this person, this rival eliminated. Now, you understand a lot of these people molest women all the time ­
 
Rense: That’s right.
 
Fulford: And, actually it’s covered up.
 
Rense: Right.
 
Fulford: So, what, you know, the point of view here in Asia is, OK, you know, it’s business as usual, but for some reason this time they decided to arrest him over it. There must be a power struggle ­
 
Rense: Well, I said that, and I’m sure you did immediately. Why are they letting him swing in the wind? They could have gotten his taken care of. They shouldn’t have arrested him on the plane, they wait till the plane takes off, it’s you know, no big deal.
 
Fulford: Because there is a high level battle taking place ­
 
Rense: Right ­
 
Fulford: Over control of the financial system. And he was a victim.
And there’s going to be a lot more victims coming up, and this is the thing you see, what’s happened is there has been very, very large scale, high level fraud, involving very, very famous people, uh, you know, and we’re talking hundreds of thousands of people, and this had been going on for quite a long time, but events are coming to a head.
They are going to be setting up an entire, immune, international agency, OK? And I’m involved with this directly. That’s what I’m talking about this week. It’s going to be an international economic planning agency, and what this new agency is going to do, first of all, it’s not, it’s going to be controlled by the people who actually put up the money, which is not the case with the IMF right now.
 
Rense: Hm.
 
Fulford: You know Asians and Middle Easterners and whoever put up the money, and people like little tiny European countries likeBelgium get to decide how to spend it.
 
Rense: Do we, do we have a name for this new organization.
 
Fulford: Well, unless you can tell me something better, right now the working title is the International Economic Planning Agency, IEPA.
 
Rense: OK. Alright, hold on just a second, Ben, we have got to pause. Take a break, come right back with Ben Fulford in Tokyo, getting another look at the IMF issue and the behind-the-scenes war over what they call ‘big money.’ Back in a minute.
 
(Break.)

Rense: Back with Ben Fulford in Tokyo, in a world where money is nothing, it’s an illusion, we’re looking now toward an issue of the Asians having the trump card, the Russians to a degree, and they are the world’s #2 supplier of oil. It’s going to be something interesting to see. The eyes of the world are on basically the Asian money stash. It’s real, a lot of it, and I assume that many people would like to get their hands on it. Is there an attack coming to try to loosen that money up?
 
Fulford: The attack, again, I know you don’t necessarily follow this, but the attack to try to loosen it up was the tsunami, and if you, if you go through a newspaper archive, you will find headlines in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, I have 20 articles and Japanese papers talking about earthquake weapons.
 
And I have DIRECT intelligence from whistleblowers at different levels, were telling me that a, they stole 4 NUCLEAR WEAPONS from the submarine Kursk, OK?
 
(Story of sunken and then recovered submarine Kursk here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_submarine_K-141_Kursk )
(Norwegian scientists and Russia reject rumors there were two nuclear cruise missiles on the Kursk.
 
That sank off the Baltic, and these aren’t under the control of any particular military. They are controlled by rogue intelligence ‘actors.’ OK?
 
Who are linked to the people, who until now, had the incredibly juicy right of producing dollars and Euros out of thin air.
 
And, they smuggled that WEAPON into a small island off of Okinawa.
 
It was then transported via a fishing boat to Kushin.
 
And then it was taken by car to a property owned by former Prime Minister Nakasone in Suludemuda (sp).
 
Then it was taken to the basement of the North Korean’s Citizen Association headquarters in Tokyo.
 
And from there it was transferred onto the deep ocean drilling vessel, the Chikyo Mara.
 
And you won’t be able to find newspaper articles in Japanese saying that the Chikyo Mara was drilling a hole right at the epicenter of what became the earthquake, starting January 17th of this year.
 
They drilled down 10 kilometers into the seabed, and they put the (stolen from the Kursk) atomic weapon there. OK?
 
(Apparently, they dropped a nuclear bomb in down a 10" or 12" diameter bore hole pipe…10 kilometers)
 
This was an attempt to pry the Asian money out, through terror. OK?
 
And, we have enough PROOF, the people in the military, the people in intelligence agencies know this. OK?
 
And so, yes, they have been threatening war, they have been threatening nastiness, and right now I am hearing these same rogue actors are planning a nuclear terrorist attack in Europe. OK?
 
There are still three unaccounted for nuclear weapons (from the Kursk).
 
And, the threats I’m getting directly from people in this rogue agencies, and you know, everyone in the intelligence community, wherever I passed on this information to the appropriate parties, and they issued warning.
 
But I have thought about what they are likely to target, and the targets they might go for would be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, or they might go after the Vatican, they might go after the City of London financial district, or the L’Olivier Fals French government district, or perhaps the EU headquarters in Brussels. OK?
 
But there is, I have received these threats, and they are credible. OK?
 
And the evidence is overwhelming, at least if you really look at it, that Japan was attacked. That was not a natural disaster. And, having said all that, OK?
 
The fact of the matter is that both the European Central Banks and the Federal Reserve Board do not have money right now. They are running out, and that’s why, and this available in your corporate propaganda news, the US government is looting pensions. It is looting your hard earned pensions to pay its day-to-day bills. This is a fact.
 
Uh, the Europeans, the only people in Europe, who, who, who save money are the Northern Europeans, and the Germans and stuff, and so the federal Europeans are also begging them for money, and they’re saying, ‘Hey, you retire at 63, we retire at 67, why should we bail you out?’ unless, or ‘well, why do we work so that you can sit in the sun?’ And this is the essence of the crisis.
 
People need to understand that economics and finance is not difficult if you think about it. It’s just anything to do with the real world, and if it gets out of touch with the real world, it doesn’t exist.
And that’s why I want to get back to this Economic Planning Agency that will start, and it’s going to supersede the World Bank and the IMF. It will become a more important institution and it will be based in Asia, and if you, I want to send you the link to a map showing how much chlorophyll there is on the planet earth. OK?
 
That’s plants. And, you’ll see that most of the planet Earth, including the oceans, is desert. That means we could increase biomass on this planet by at least 100% with proper economic planning. That means you could increase farmland by 4 times simply by turning the deserts green. If you go to all the dead areas of the oceans where there is no plankton because there are no nutrients on the surface, you could increase the amount of fish, you could nutrients pumped into the bottom of the ocean to the surface, you could increase nutrients, you could have ten times more fish. In other words, sensible planning using humanities’ savings in a sensible manner, would allow us to vastly increase the life on this planet making it all that much more rich and comfortable for everybody. And, we could also start doing things like building artificial planets. What has happened until now is that the savings that we’re going to be used, that could be used for this purpose were hijacked by a bunch of religious fanatics who you call ‘zionists,’ who were planning an artificial end time. They were planning to start World War III, they are diverting it all into giant military adventures that serve no purpose but conquest and slavery. OK, this is the situation we are dealing with.
 
 
Rense: Hm. OK. Well, you’ve ­
 
Fulford: And this, I know it sounds crazy, but it’s real!
 
Rense: Well, I’ve ­
 
Fulford: And it’s very provable. You know it. It’s all there in your pages over the years. You can see it’s there. Their plans are very clear.
 
Rense: Their plans to start wars and kill people, and profit from it, are legendary, and we know that to be a fact. So, hang on, we have to take a break. Just a second.
 
Fulford: Yeah.
 
Rense. Be right back in just a few minutes on this Wednesday, amazing, Wednesday night, the last Wednesday of May already. OK. Hang on. Be back in a minute.
 
(Break)

Rense: OK, back with Ben Fulford in Tokyo. The story yesterday that they have to move another 70,000 people away from that wrecked plant, in addition to all of the others that they have had to move so far, they are living in shelters. My God. What are they going to do with these poor people?
 
Fulford: Well, they are going to have to find new homes for them, and that’s going to happen. And again, I want to emphasize that there was several housing companies here in Japan, that their stock prices rose dramatically in the months prior to the tsunami, like New Japan House and Misara Home. In other words, in a country where you have a declining population, 3 million empty homes, there is no reason for a home price builders stock to rise suddenly one month before a tsunami that no one supposedly predicted, unless they had inside knowledge.
But, they will be building houses now, lots of them, and they will be making lots of money and you have to ask yourself, who owns these shares, who bought them, when did they buy them, why did they buy them, and you will find the investigative trail to serving prosecutors in the Tokyo prosecutors’ office, it leads to Senator Jay Rockefeller, OK? I’m going to put that name out there, because we have evidence.
At the Democratic Party power broker at Ichiba Ozawa. OK, we have people, we have a list, we have intelligence of people who had inside knowledge previous to this tsunami. We have a conversation between Foreign Minister of the United States, or Secretary of State Kurt Campbell and Ozawa on March 9th, where Campbell told Ozawa we will call off the prosecutors who are harassing you on bogus charges, if you’ll agree to keep the current ruling party in power, and we will give you the rights to all the zeolite in Fukushima prefecture.
Zeolite, as you know is used to clean up radioactive waste. This conversation took place on March 9th, 2 days before the tsunami and the attack, and the University of Tokyo detected an anomalous, you know, what is it, radioactive, microwave signals associated with HAARP prior to the tsunami, and they stopped immediately after the tsunami earthquake and out best intelligence tells us this is a deliberate attack involving a seabed, a time bomb and scalar magnetic weapons, OK? And the evidence is there. This is not some way out conspiracy nut. If they want to sue us, we can prove it in court. That’s why I guarantee you they won’t.
 
Rense: If they ­
 
Fulford: Because they know, they are going to go to jail! They know!
 
Rense: But ­
 
Fulford: They’re not going to get away with this.
 
Rense: If they asked your team to describe and define scientifically what a scalar weapon is, how would they do it?
 
Fulford: Well, we would direct them to the treaties signed between the United States and the Soviet Union in the 1970s which were widely publicized in places like the New York Times, and all the other newspapers of the world, and we would direct them to the patents on HAARP that describe how the mechanisms work ­
 
Rense: Well HAARP is not scalar.
 
Fulford: Well, no, see, HAARP is part of this. HAARP is actually.
Actually, I should not harp too much on HAARP, because a lot of it is used as disinformation to get us off the real issue, which is essentially seabed nuclear weapons. And this, we can prove, very clearly and scientifically and in great detail. We even have whistleblowers were are involved in the smuggling of the atomic bomb intoJapan. They were not involved in the actual placing it on the seabed, or setting it off. But they were drug smugglers who brought that in with their stuff. OK? And they told us about this. We have their names. They are willing to testify.
 
Rense: Where will they testify, Ben? If they can.
 
Fulford: (Shouting) Well that’s the problem isn’t it? (Voice lowered.) We have this international criminal court that are, that are controlled by these people. You’re dealing with guys who have been above the law for so long, they thought they could get away with anything forever. And we know who we’re’ talking about. We’re talking about Henry Kissinger, we’re talking about George Bush, SR., and we’re talking about David Rockefeller, we’re talking about Jay Rockefeller, all of these guys. We know who they are, and they thought that they could get away with this sort of stuff forever, mass murder, invading countries, massacring civilians, starting wars, and you know, all this international criminal activity at the highest level, they thought they could get away with it forever. Well, they’re not! There is enough of this now where we are disgusted enough, we are angry enough that we’re saying, ‘You guys are not going to be able to continue doing this. We’re not going to let you run the planet anymore because you’re criminal, you’re incompetent, you’re pathologically sick, mentally’ ­ well, I mean, they’re mass murderers, they’re ____(25:53)_____ and they’re not good at managing the planet. Their answer, they said, ‘Oh, gee, well we’re destroying the environment, that means we have to kill 4 billion people.’ Well, no.
You have to have a proper economic system in place where all the reserves are not being spent on the total mass slaughter through the giant armies. All it takes is 200 billion to end poverty and 400 billion to stop the environmental destruction, and then enough to create one year’s US military spending ­
 
Rense: When will we see, in your estimation, the freeing up of alternative technologies, both energy and health. When will this happen?
 
Fulford: It’s slowly happening. I mean, it’s going to have to wait until the mass arrest of pharmaceutical company mass murderers, and ____(26:41)____ of the American Medical Association and the WHO. We are going to have to get the criminals out of the system. That’s going to take a while, but it will have to wait until the political change takes place. But, the alternative energy has actually started, and this where we can get back to the subject you wish to talk about, which is Japan, and that is that the nuclear disaster has a silver lining to this cloud, which is that there is serious debate now and you can see it on the national television broadcasts and the newspapers, about the entire business model of centralized energy controlled by monopolies or near monopolies, and are serious talks about like a very clever entrepreneur, Masurashi Son, you know who bought Yahoo, and was always in the business press. He is thinking of taking over Tokyo Electric Power.
 
Rense: If he takes over TEPCO, is there a move…a substantial move there to shut down (Japan’s) 55 nuclear power plants?
 
Fulford: Well yeah, it would mean replacing them with solar energy and all that other stuff, over time.
 
Rense: Right. I mean, is there a substantial move in the parliament?
 
Fulford: Yeah!! Yeah. This was discussed. He has openly proposed you know giant solar farms, for example, in the tsunami stricken region, to replace the nuclear power plants. The other thing was, you know that business model that actually would work right now, you know how they give you like a mobile phone for like a dollar, or something?
 
Rense: Sure.
 
Fulford: It’s really a dollar, what happens is you pay for it over installments.
 
Rense: That’s right. That’s right.
 
Fulford: You could do the same. You could give everyone a free solar panel, right? And you could say, all right, from now on you pay off your electricity bill so the electricity company ­ but after 5 years guess what? You don’t have to pay your bill any more and your electricity is free.
 
Rense: Well, there are so many wonderful alternatives sitting on the shelf ­
 
Fulford: Well, what happened with this disaster ­
 
Rense: Hold that thought, Ben, will you? We have to pause. Just a second. We’ll be right back with more in just a minute.
 
(Break)
fukushima Grim reaper
 
Rense: OK, in Tokyo, Ben Fulford. The head of TEPCO stepped down last week I guess, no big surprise there.
 
Fulford: (Garbled)
 
Rense: How is the government holding up under increasing public outrage about its policies of not telling the truth ­ the full truth ­ about the extent of the disaster at Fukushima?
 
Fulford: Well the thing is that the public is kind of docile and obedient to the government media, of the government controlled media, so you just don’t see a lot of panic here. OK, people are, it’s like in German World War II, they’d read in the newspapers about a great victory at Midway, you know? (Laugh). I can honestly say there’s not a lot of anger here among the people
 
Rense: So you’re saying the media is covering this up to the extent that the people really don’t have a good grip on the dynamics involved?
 
Fulford: Well, the media is putting it out in a rather calm manner based on fact, and they do report a lot about it, but they do it ­ they put a pause in the spin on it. And there’s a general ­ you know, people have to go on with their lives and they are not in a state of fear or panic, which is what I believe was the desired result of this attack.
 
Rense: What I was suggesting was that they’re beginning to show anger. I don’t know how widespread it is, but the government has raised the annual millisievert allowable limits for children to 20 a year, which is way over the limit, and the people are not happy about that.
 
Fulford: I mean again, the government support rate is low, but it’s always been low, and yet nothing seems to change here.
 
Rense: Hmmm.
 
Fulford: But you know, I have talked to people and what they do is they take personal action, for example when the government said it was safe to drink the water except for babies, well everybody in the whole city of Tokyo stopped drinking tap water, and they’re the same way.
They’re not. They’re going to, you know, accept their own safety limits, but the debate is clearly rationale and calm here, and what we find is that ­ and this is a fact, that the people involved in panic mongering about radiation are people who have always been doing this since way back. And, they’ve had a lot of fake reports, exaggerated reports, sensationalist reports, you have this guy going around with a fake Geiger counter saying he came from Chernobyl and this is even worse, and he’s ______(32:11)_____ to all these Japanese left wing activists, and he’s giving them this false information, so they are all actual disinformation, disinformation agents out there actively spreading irrational panic, and that’s why I guess I had that emotional outburst, which I apologize for at the beginning of the show, because I am tired of the panic mongering as opposed to the rationale reporting that I have seen too much of in the English press, as opposed to the Japanese ­
 
Rense: I just want you to know…
 
Fulford: (Garbled, shouting over Rense again)
 
Rense: I am very meticulous about the….
 
Fulford: (Garbled, talking over Rense again)
 
Rense: The media outlets that I quote on my site…I don’t know about other sites…but I am really careful about it.
 
Fulford: Sure. I mean I am ­ and I do read it. But for now anyway, things are OK, but it will, you know, it is, it is a fact of the matter that over time the area that the people will have to evacuate will expand, and there will be a massive cleanup operation and it’s going to take years, and years and years to clean it up, but ­
 
Rense: What do you think the ultimate price tag will be? They’re talking about 200 or 300 billion. I think that’s conservative, don’t you?
 
Fulford: Well, you know, when you get something that big, it’s kind of hard to put numbers on it.
 
Rense: That’s the way it looks to me.
 
Fulford: It’s much better that you get the real, like intuitive understanding is to go to Google Earth, OK? And look at the area through the Google Earth satellite pictures and just see for yourself how big an area is actually being, you know, changed as a result, and then you will realize that it’s big, but in terms of the size of the island, it’s not that big. You know what I mean? It’s like less than like maybe a tenth of a percent, I don’t know, whatever, but it’s not as big as, maybe 1 percent, or no, a half a percent. We’re talking about 450,000 people who had to leave their homes, and we’re talking about a nation of 130 million, so yeah, less than half a percent. And that’s the actual reality, you know. So you have to put things in perspective. It’s a lot like in a single night in the firebombing of Tokyo, they destroyed 1/4 of the homes in Tokyo. That’s 25%.
 
Rense: Oh, see, that’s another thing. World War II is not understood by people any more. What was done to the Japanese people was beyond criminal. Just incredible.
 
Fulford: And, and, they’ve suffered and the memory of people still alive is far far worse than this attack. And that’s why I think they are pretty resilient and they’re pretty calm considering.
 
Rense: Well, very much stoic about things. I don’t know how they rally to it. But maybe it is sort of a remnant of World War II. They learned to put up with…
 
Fulford: (Garbled, speaking over Rense again) The government is much more confident here. What happened in the United States is that you used to have very good government, and then they went out and they privatized everything too much. There are some areas where private industry does a worse job, and I would say that prunes are a good example, utilities can be depending, but you cleaning up after disasters and stuff is a definite example where public service is better than profit. But, but, I mean you’re a model, I mean the European, North American liberal capitalist business model has failed, miserably and the result is that your economies are in a state of shear collapse. They’re only surviving much worse disaster than you’ve seen already, I mean, we’re far worse than what Lehman saw, only thanks to the generosity of the rest of the world. You’re living on borrowed time, and in a state of denial, and ­ and that’s not going to continue.
 
Rense: We’ve been looted, Ben, and you know it ­
 
Fulford: (Shouting) (Garbled) The American people have been looted, but what I’m talking about is your power structure. I’m talking about the criminals in Washington, D.C., I’m talking about the generals who got bribes and hid them in Vatican accounts ­
 
Rense: Mm-hmm.
 
Fulford: I’m talking about the Wall Street ­ you know, ___(36:36)______ I’m talking about the criminals and plutocrats who looted your people and your country as well as the rest of the world.
 
Rense: That’s right.
 
Fulford: (Garbled)
 
Rense: It all goes right back ultimately to the City of London, that 2-square mile patch in London where the money of the world passes.
 
Fulford: (Speaking over Rense again) It, it goes back to the creation of fiat currency, back in 1690. I would trace it to 1690 when they first started putting out money that wasn’t actually backed by anything, and they created the biggest pyramid scheme in the history of the planet, and they had a 300-year run and it’s finally ending. They have got nowhere else to go, they have destroyed the planet, or they’ve come close to it, and they’re hoping to kill everybody in order to get away with what they’ve tried to do, and it’s not going to happen. The thing is, if money is not backed by something in the real world, it doesn’t exist, and these guys they can put out press conferences, they can lie to the media, they can have their little G8 and media news, and they can do whatever they want but reality is going to intrude on their party. There is nothing they can do about it. Reality is real, fake dollars aren’t real. The Euro is not backed by anything in the actual world don’t exist. And these people, they can flip and they can flop and they can murder and they can threaten, but it’s too late. They’ve destroyed their own system through their greed, through their megalomania, and through their plans to create a fascist world government and kill 4 billion people.
 
They are not going to get away with it. They aren’t going to be, the world knows, the world intelligence agencies, the world’s militaries, the world’s police agencies, the people who actually control the guns and the people who actually control the news of violence know about this now. And they are not letting them get away with it. They right ­ they don’t have it unglued anymore to suppress the people. They still control the corporate media and the English language and that’s why you see all these ridiculous contradictory stories about Libya, about whatever. Look at Libya. If you read the Zionist controlled press, you’d think that the whole world is bombing Libya when in fact it’s only a few places from Italy, the UK, and France. The American military is not involved. Whatever they may say in your lying corporate media, they are not involved. In fact, the Libyans are supplying them with oil. The pentagon is getting oil from the Libyans.
 
Rense: Well, they’re getting ­
 
Fulford: (Talking over Rense) Washington, D.C.
 
Rense: They’re getting oil from the Libyans who are occupying…the eastern part of the country ­
 
Fulford: (Talking over Rense). That’s the Saudis. That’s the Saudis. The Saudis are ­ you see, what I’m trying to say is that the pentagon is no longer with the crooks in Washington, D.C. There are some still, some still political issues to be dealt with, I have heard General Petraeus is still with the bad guys, but generally speaking, the American military and the people in the agencies are patriotic and they’re intelligent and they know that the American people have been shafted, and they know who shafted them, and they’re not going to let these people get away with it. And, I’m in touch with these guys.
And they’re patriotic, and they’re not going to let anyone mess with the United States of America, and they have messed with it enough and enough is enough. When they tried to loot the Social Security money, they put the guy in jail. That’s a good example. There’re going to be more examples like that. That guy was one of the most powerful people, if not the most powerful person in international finance, and put him in a jail cell.
 
Rense: Well, we’ll see what happens. We’d love to see it cleaned up like you project, and ­
 
Fulford: (Speaking over Rense.) It’s going to take a couple of months. But it is going to happen. It will happen. 100%.
 
Rense: All right. Let’s hope so, Ben. Thanks. Good night. Couple months, we’ll see. Time to clean house. All right. I’ll be back tomorrow night. Boy, it goes fast. 21 Hours, it’s going to be Thursday tomorrow, the 26th _______________ (40:53) will be here, Jim Marrs will be here, and lots more, so see you tomorrow night and in the meantime, we will be with you, of course, on the net at Rense.com. Take care.
