I am becoming truly emotionally exhausted by all the recent headlines describing Fukushima, particularly spent fuel pool #4, as an imminent threat to civilization.

I am not just emotionally exhausted because I fear for the people of Japan and the entire northern hemisphere.

The real reason I am so emotionally exhausted is because I believe that Fukushima's spent fuel pools have burned many times over during the course of the last year.

There may be still some fuel in pools #4 and #3, but I am convinced that these pools have burned over and over again. I SAW FLAMES at Unit 3 in June of 2011 on the Tepco webcam. The common spent fuel pool probably has burned as well. Perhaps units 5 and 6 burned also.

I recommend watching these short videos showing Fukushima Steam/Smoke Releases.

Majia here: Again, I feel very frustrated by all the recent headlines warning of the possibility for a spent fuel pool fire when I believe fires have occurred time and time again over the last 14 months.

Here are some examples of recent headlines, with some brief excerpts, of officials and other important types warning of the risk of a fire at spent fuel pool #4:

The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Is Far From OverBy Robert Alvarez, Reader Supported News
23 April 12

[Excerpted] "Spent reactor fuel, containing roughly 85 times more long-lived radioactivity than released at Chernobyl, still sits in pools vulnerable to earthquakes.

More than a year after the Fukushima nuclear power disaster began, the news media is just beginning to grasp that the dangers to Japan and the rest of the world are far from over. After repeated warnings by former senior Japanese officials, nuclear experts, and now a U.S. Senator, it's sinking in that the irradiated nuclear fuel stored in spent fuel pools amidst the reactor ruins pose far greater dangers than the molten cores. This is why:

Nearly all of the 10,893 spent fuel assemblies sit in pools vulnerable to future earthquakes, with roughly 85 times more long-lived radioactivity than released at Chernobyl

Several pools are 100 feet above the ground and are completely open to the atmosphere because the reactor buildings were demolished by explosions. The pools could possibly topple or collapse from structural damage coupled with another powerful earthquake.

The loss of water exposing the spent fuel will result in overheating and can cause melting and ignite its zirconium metal cladding resulting in a fire that could deposit large amounts of radioactive materials over hundreds, if not thousands of miles...."

Former Japanese diplomats are describing Fukushima as threatening civilization.

Majia Here: I wonder whether these people read the NRC transcripts and have watched the Tepco video webcam at all?

As I've already explained, the NRC transcripts report fires in both spent fuel pools 3 and 4 in March of 2011. NRC's Operation Center Fukushima Transcript Audio Clips March 16 2011

Maybe the people speaking out above -- Alvarez, Senator Ron Wyden, and Japanese diplomats Masumura and Murata -- are simply trying to tell us in code that any MORE fires at Fukushima will spell the doom of civilization?
Maybe they cannot speak the truth of what has truly unfolded because of the enveloping veil of censorship that surely must be coming from the top.
The Japanese, Canadian, and American governments have lied through their teeth about the events at Fukushima. I've documented this in my Lessons of Fukushima powerpoint.
Given that the lies have spewed as thick as the radioactive steam and smoke that have been evident of the Tepco and TBS webcams, I truly wonder whether the tipping point has already passed and we are simply awaiting the unfolding of the biggest extinction event to happen on planet earth since the last major asteroid hit.

I imagine it will take decades to unfold so I see no point in panicking or losing hope for one's own continued existence.

But I do see that we need to plan and prepare beyond stockpiling weapons and seizing resources abroad, which seems to be all our governments are capable of these days.

The U.S. is currently "modernizing" its nuclear weapons arsenal.
(Succeeding Where Bush Failed: The Obama Administration's Nuclear Weapon Surge. Counterpunch. By Darwin Bond-Graham)

Someone I know who works in the weapons' industry told me that western governments are currently stockpiling missiles at an unprecedented rate.

Why are we preparing for a war that no one country can win without destroying us all, especially in the context of the largest nuclear disaster in all of human history?

I recommend reading my post here:

I am so disgusted, frustrated, and exhausted I do not know what else to say about the utter madness that seems to have seized the world.
