Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

“Radioactive River” Flowing at Fukushima No. 3 Reactor

Stream of radioactive water 30-cm wide continuously flowing at Reactor No.3

The plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), says the radioactive water leaking from the number 3 reactor building is most probably coming from the containment vessel.

A camera installed on a robot took a video of the radioactive stream on the first floor of the reactor building on Saturday. The stream, 30cm wide, is continuously flowing into a drain, said TEPCO.

Technicians have detected 24 million becquerels per liter of beta ray-emitting radioactive substances, including strontium, as well as 1.7 million becquerels per liter of Cesium 137, TEPCO said in a statement.

That level of contamination is almost as high as the radioactive materials in the water that has been accumulating in the basement of reactor building.

The water temperature is about 20ºC, which matches the temperature of the water at the bottom of the reactor [containment vessel,] said TEPCO.

TEPCO officials believe the water for cooling melted fuel in the containment vessel is leaking for reason that are unknown to them. [Try cracks in the containment vessel. Editor]

The company said they will continue with their investigation until they get to the bottom of it (!)

On November 7, 2013 FIRE-EARTH said [and Google/Wordpress censored]:

Scale of potential catastrophe at Fukushima could dwarf a limited nuclear war.
