Safe Mode: On
human civilization on the brink

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 to end 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 of 85 times the Cesium-137 released by the Chernobyl catastrophe, say experts (see below). And the Chernobyl catastrop

    • @niltomega Yeah, but this isn't exactly your run of the mill wild theory. If it was being taken seriously and they had the best people working on it, there wouldn't be much to worry about. As it is, it's in the hands of the same people that built and mismanaged them in the first place, TEPCO and the Japanese government. These are the same people that caused the engineers who designed it to quit in protest when they were being built.

  • Wildlife in Chernoby is thriving nowadays. The animals can handle much more radiation than any other animals because of the accident, and it hasn't even been 30 years. To say that it would be uninhabitable is too subjective. Yes, some area or zone might be uninhabitable for us, although there are people who live close to Chernobyl, if it wasn't even IN Chernobyl, who lived there since before the accident and didn't leave. But future generations will naturally adapt to the levels of radiation lik More..
