There have long been reports and speculation that the situation at the Fukushima nuclear power plants is much more dire than the Japanese government would have everyone believe. Some experts are pleading with other governments for intervention to help contain the nuclear reactors that they think are very vulnerable still to another earthquake.
Many think that if there were another earthquake, Fukishima is still so unstable that it could cause a huge unleashing of radiation clouds that would go as far as the coasts of the US and perhaps poison the air with radioactive isotopes for years to come, causing cancer and other ungodly diseases and malfunctions of the human body.
The consensus is that the Japanese government is covering up how bad things really are in order to not only save face and make it look like they’re doing a good job of keeping things under control, but also to prevent mass public hysteria, riots and protests.
One could see why certain things have to be kept in order to keep civility, but the citizens who may be exposed and the workers at the plant must know what they are being exposed to.
Now new reports are surfacing accusing contractors who are testing the radiation levels on an ongoing basis to encourage the testers in the field to cover their radiation detection devices in lead shields in order to provide false under-readings of the true levels of radiation at the plant.
The allegation is that these workers were coerced into using these shields and that the reported radiation levels were really much higher and therefore unsafe. If this is true, then we are witnessing one of the biggest cover ups in our history, and one that could affect each and every one of us if this thing blows after another earthquake.
It could truly be catastrophic if this occurs. I encourage you to educate yourself about this situation and get the facts so you can be informed in case anything ever does come of this and also to get educate on how to protect yourself in the event of a nuclear emergency.
