First of all: About the earthquake-tsunami-nuclear meltdown in Japan.
I have been following the reports and interviews with top level nuclear physicist carefully over the last week, since the initial mega quake. By now it is clear to me that this could be worst environmental disaster so far in history. It could be even worse than the BP Gulf of Mexico oil will rupture, and that is saying a lot. Lets face it high level radioactivity is being spewed all over the place at the Fukushima nuclear plant.
There have so far been several big explosions at the 6 reactor facility. The explosion on Tuesday, March 15 at reactor #3 was so violent that it blew spent fuel rods stored on the roof of the reactor 3000 feet into the air. Reactor # 3 also uses MOX fuel which is a mixture of Uranium and plutonium which is even far more deadly and dangerous. Breathing one tiny nano sized particle of it means a horrible death by cancer. The fuel rods in the reactors are only part of the problem. There are literally hundreds of thousands of spent nuclear fuel rods stored at the facility which contain highly deadly uranium and plutonium. These spent fuel rods were stored in open water filled tanks literally on the roof of the reactor buildings. They have now been blown all over the place by the explosions at the plant and are exposed to the air, water, and soil.
The nuclear accident at Chernobyl in the Ukraine in 1986 released an estimated 400 times the radiation of the Hiroshima atomic bomb. The radiation from that accident circled the northern hemisphere 4 times before it could no longer be detected. It is estimated that over the last 25 years radiation from Chernobyl has caused over a million cancer deaths, mostly in Europe. The Japanese nuclear catastrophe could make Chernobyl look small by comparison. There is reason to believe that the containment vessels at 2 of the reactors have already been breached. Desperate attempts are being made to keep the reactor rods covered with water not only in the reactors themselves but also in the spent fuel rod storage tanks most of which are stored above the reactors. There is a last ditch effort to pump in sea water to prevent the fuel rods from totally melting down, and causing an out of control chain reaction that could blow up like a bomb. In a worst case scenario Japan could become uninhabitable and millions of people world wide would die of cancer. A run away nuclear reactor is the ultimate dirty bomb.
I shudder to think what this ongoing nightmare could mean in the context of some of the extremely violent aspects happening over the next month, particularly the explosive Mars-Uranus conjunction in the first week of April, Mars square Pluto in the second week of April, and Mars opposition to Saturn in the middle of April. Let us pray that there is not a total melt down and nuclear explosion. This disaster like 911, the economic crash of the fall of 2008, and The BP oil blow out is another ratcheting up of world destabilization. This horror is far from over it could get much, much worse. Humanity is in grave danger!
This catastrophe has the same weird, surreal, is this really happening, dream like feeling about it as Just after 911, the fall of 2008 economic crash, and the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The collective unconscious of humanity, which understands how serious these events are, is experiencing a major traumatic shock.
I will start with some short term influences (next 3 months or so)
