Japan On The Verge Of A Nuclear Apocalypse?

The Most Serious Challenges Humanity Has Ever Faced

The only nation ever to suffer the effects of nuclear war now faces a nuclear catastrophe of unknown scope and unforeseeable consequences, following one of the biggest earthquakes in history and the resulting tsunami. Humanity now faces a deadly serious challenge coming out of Japan -- the epicenter of radiation, as the situation continues to worsen at Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant.

Events in Japan over the past week have rekindled nuclear anxieties that have remained largely dormant for an older generation and will likely give a new generation a new fear to contemplate.

In the aftermath of the Japanese earthquake, a nuclear reactor was fractured and radioactive material has been leaking into the atmosphere. Japan is racing against time to cool the overheating reactors. The cooling problem is particularly critical. The nuclear level is severe. The situation grave, as the level of radiation in the atmosphere soars - an alarming worry for Japan and its citizens.

This is one of the most serious challenges humanity has ever faced. The situation is an apocalyptic nightmare and it is only getting worse.

Here is a simultaneous catastrophe beyond human comprehension: At least six nuclear reactors in various states of collapse, out-of-control, and in partial meltdown, and at least one even more deadly spent fuel pool overheating and burning, amidst the apocalypse from the original Richter 9.0 earthquake, the Richter 5.0 and 6.0 aftershocks, the Tsunami, the massive death toll, the lack of emergency vehicles and spreading radioactivity, the fires, the melting Spent Fuel Pools -- they are not "screening" radioactive releases which, in any case, are now uncontrolled.

How is this particular nuclear apocalypse defined?
Earthquakes and after shocks + tidal wave = tsunami. Aged Nuke Plant + loss of coolant, fires, explosions + the pox of plutonium and other phenomena that create massive radioactive emissions = chemical pollution = fear. Contradicting information= denial too obvious to ignore + politics, racism, greed = perfect formula for a potential nuclear apocalypse.

Japan raised the nuclear alert level at Fukushima from four to five on a seven-point international scale for atomic incidents, making this nightmare just two “points” away from Chernobyl! The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency referred to this awful disaster as a “race against the clock,” so that’s comforting. Since this tragedy began last Friday, 6,405 people have been reported dead and approximately 10,200 are still missing. Also, miserable weather and heavy snowfall has basically made Japan the saddest place on Earth. [BBC]

There’s no undoing damage that’s already done. But to avert a tragedy of large scale proportions we must be honest, proactive, have an effective internal flow of information & practice rapid crisis response. Above all else we must be responsible human beings being consistent in communicating honestly and effectively for the safety, health and good of all living beings.

We are all in this together. We each must look out for and protect one another. The safety of the public is paramount. We should not support those causes that openly contradict our values. We must not stand by while our neighbors blood is shed. We all share personal duties and  responsibilities and we all have an obligation to protect each other and society from danger and harm.

We were created to make this world a better place - not just to avoid making things worse. Human beings have a duty to hold themselves accountable for their actions We have an obligation to take responsibility for how we treat our planet, and how we treat each other. We need not debate the issue of human responsibility and culpability. We are all bound by ethical and moral responsibility. This includes delivery of truth & being accountable for it.

We are responsible agents for each other and our planet, every day of our lives. From a bad situation we can turn it into a good one. In the World's hour of an unprecedented crisis, the international community is duty-bound to clean up and permanently fix this catastrophe and turn it into a controlled, bearable, survivable situation to move forward and learn a very valuable lesson to never make the same mistakes again.

We may not be able to control natural disasters, but we are the masters over our own human disasters. Let us help protect what is most valuable to us. It is up to us to change our destiny for the good and better. 

Tomorrow is not in our hands; yesterday will never come back, and all we have to change our destiny for time and eternity, is now.

Let's pray for the people of Japan and for the welfare of the World and all of its inhabitants.
