Chances appear to be slim...
"No one can say or know how this will play out, except that millions of people will probably die even if things stay exactly as they are, and billions could die if things get any worse."
Even the tiniest mistake during an operation to extract over 1,300 fuel rods at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan could lead to a series of cascading failures with an apocalyptic outcome, fallout researcher Christina Consolo told RT.
Fukushima operator TEPCO wants to extract 400 tons worth of spent fuel rods stored in a pool at the plant’s damaged Reactor No. 4. The removal would have to be done manually from the top store of the damaged building in the radiation-contaminated environment.
In the worst-case scenario, a mishandled rod may go critical, resulting in an above-ground meltdown releasing radioactive fallout with no way to stop it, said Consolo, who is the founder and host of Nuked Radio. But leaving the things as they are is not an option, because statistical risk of a similarly bad outcome increases every day, she said. - Complete story here.
Some days it just feels as if the end is near, doesn't it? The article cited speculates that northern Japan may be uninhabitable - while if things get worse, Tokyo would have to be evacuated - abandoned. Makes me think of an old prophecy; "Many nations will be annihilated."
I suppose every word would have to be analyzed to determine if such prophecies could mean the same thing in modern times. It is impossible to determine the meaning of anything spoken or written these days. Who can makes sense of anything today? Like the following:
'The mainstream media, world governments, nuclear agencies, health organizations, weather reporters, and the health care industry has completely ignored three ongoing triple meltdowns that have never been contained'
What does that even mean?
I'm sure all of it can be refuted and dismissed as so much hype. It can't be tweeted.
