Can you believe this?  In a very much under-reported story, Japan’s government and its largest public utility company now say they “underestimated” the amount of radiation released in last year’s nuclear meltdown!

This is absurd!  In “Utility Says It Underestimated Radiation Released in Japan,” Reuters News Service ‘calmly’ explains:  “The amount of radioactive materials released in the first days of the Fukushima nuclear disaster was almost two and a half times the initial estimate by Japanese safety regulators, the operator of the crippled plant said in a report” released this week.

Two and a half times??  How long can this go on???  TEPCO, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, now says that “the meltdowns it believes took place at three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant released about 900,000 terabecquerels of radioactive substances into the air during March 2011.

“The latest estimate was based on measurements suggesting the amount of iodine-131 released by the nuclear accident was much larger than previous estimates.”  Then, Reuters, says ‘oh by the way,’ “Iodine-131 is a fast-decaying radioactive substance produced by fission that takes place inside a nuclear reactor. It has a half-life of eight days and can cause thyroid cancer.”

Aaaaggghhhhh. “Can cause thyroid cancer???!!!”  Jael has to take me off this assignment.  It is driving me nuts!  Why are these nuclear power idiots around the world allowed to built such dangerous foolishness, endangering people’s lives?

And get this:  Now Japanese officials are saying that they probably should have moved even more people away from the exploding plant.  “Although people who lived closest to the plant were evacuated, many people remain in areas with significantly higher radiation levels than normal.”

TEPCO asks us to understand that “it had initially been unable to accurately judge the amount of radioactive materials released soon after the accident because radiation sensors closest to the plant were disabled in the disaster.”

Disabled???? What good are sensors that are suppose to measure danger if the danger can so easily destroy the sensors????  Who built this foolishness??? Dennis the Menace?? Nah!!  Even Dennis would have done a better job!!

How can Reuters so calmly report these outrageous statements?  How can The New York Times so carefully hide this Reuters story among its back pages?  Oh, and then Reuters says:  “The newly released information is likely to add to concerns among many Japanese that they were never told the extent of the accident or the risks it posed.”  Aaagghhhh again. The world can’t take much more of this.

That’s it? Add to concerns?  Hurry, praying people:  “Open Christian prayer books.  Pray with Apostle John to whom The LORD said, Surely I come quickly. Amen. And John answered, Even so, come, Lord Jesus (Revelation 22:20).”
