Seventeen international scientists and experts have written to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon urging international action on Fukushima crisis.
“We write to you in urgency. The situation around the world at radioactively contaminated sites is not good, and it is clear that the situation at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor site is progressively deteriorating, not stabilizing.”

The situation for Japan and the remainder of the world is so grave and frightful, that all efforts must be made to secure the waste that resides in the precarious pools. It must also be noted, that “NO ONE knows what to do with Nuclear waste!”…other than leave it sit around…or try to pawn it off on some small poor community somewhere! The nuclear industry and nuclear power must stop making nuclear waste.
We do know how to deal with nuclear waste. Molten Salt Reactors such as LFTR (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) can preform fission on the dangerous transuranics if you dump the waste in the reactor vessle. This isn’t just a theoretical design either, we had a LFTR run for five years at Oakridge nation labs in the last 60s but the fact that you can’t build bombs from what’s left after is a big part of why we’ve stuck with reactors that require very high pressures.. Speaking of what’s left behind LFTR burns up 99% of the fuel and the leftover nuclear material is a non-fissile form of Plutonium that is useful for making batteries for space probes and whatnot.
Dear U.N. SEND INTERNATIONAL HELP FOR FUKUSHIMA NOW! THE WORLD NEEDS HELP AND THE CHILDREN NEED HELP…SEND HELP..TEPCO IS NOT ABLE TO HANDLE THIS DANGEROUS OPERATION THAT THE WORLD HAS NEVER FACED BEFORE!! TEPCO DOES NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO AND NEITHER DOES THE WORLD! GATHER THE BEST OF THE BEST AND DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD!! PLEASE!!!!
