US, world headed for 25 year depression: Jim Rickards

“When I use the phrase 25 year depression, it sounds extreme but it’s not. We had a 30 year depression in the United States from about 1870 to 1900…The Great Depression lasted from about 1929 to 1940. The U.S. is in a depression today.” Well, it's been in the works for

fallout cloud to USA

“California is closely monitoring efforts to contain leaks from a quake-damaged Japanese nuclear plant, a spokesman said Saturday, as experts said radiation could be blown out across the Pacific.”

Our deepest sympathies to the Japanese people, but the Japanese government must be held accountable for the massive cover-up and mismanagement of the nuclear crisis.

It is funny that the Western media is trying to sugar coat the Japanese government’s incompetence but the Japanese media themselves are mad as h&ll at their government and they are questioning government incompetence and misinformation.

The Japanese government and its agency knew about the pending danger but withheld the information and failed to evacuate the people in time. This resulted in over 10,000 people now presumed dead and over 200,000 homeless.

The Japanese government tried to cover-up the danger of level of radiation by saying the radiation is non-existent when the French atomic commission already warned of a 6 scale (Chernobyle is a 7) radiation leak three days before. Japanese people were told to stay indoors and close their doors and not to open windows when the US 7th fleet decided to leave the area. Now those residents are tested to have high levels of radiation. South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, the Phillipines are all refusing Japanese fish into their ports. And the Japanese government only admits to the spread of high level radiation after international outcry.

Proof of Cover-up

Mitsuhiko Tanaka, 67, working as an engineer at Babcock Hitachi K.K., helped design and supervise the manufacture of a $250 million steel pressure vessel for Tokyo Electric in 1975. Today, that vessel holds the fuel rods in the core of the No. 4 reactor at Fukushima’s Dai-Ichi plant, hit by explosion and fire after the tsunami. Tanaka says the vessel was damaged in the production process. He says he knows because he orchestrated the cover-up. When he brought his accusations to the government more than a decade later, he was ignored, he says. Source: bloomberg (2)

The Japanese government told the people not to panic and that the reactors were well protected even after two explosions occurred and the Japanese atomic commission tried to solve the problem by pouring sea water on the fuel rods. But that was the wrong approach and another reactor exploded and only after a 4th explosion that the Japanese atomic people asked for international help. After a significant amount of radiation already released into the air.

If the Western media really care about the Japanese people, why are they helping the Japanese government with the cover-ups.

“At present there is no danger to California. However we are monitoring the situation closely in conjunction with our federal partners,” Michael Sicilia, spokesman for California Department of Public Health, told AFP.

“California does have radioactivity monitoring systems in place for air, water and the food supply and can enhance that monitoring if a danger exists,” he added.

***

Experts have suggested that, if there were a reactor meltdown or major leak at Fukushima, the radioactive cloud would likely be blown out east across the Pacific, towards the US West Coast.

“The wind direction for the time being seems to point the (nuclear) pollution towards the Pacific,” said Andre-Claude Lacoste of the French Nuclear Safety Authority, briefing journalists in Paris on the Japanese crisis.

    Here’s the story behind a nuclear power plant in California located on the Pacific coast immediately adjacent to two major fault systems:

    It certainly appears that Japan is not the only country in the world that built nuclear power stations in seismically active areas.

    Do you know that they all are built in systemic areas that can not support the pollution and there are fault lines all over the states. It is a disgrace we do not know more about something we use every day. The spent waste is the real problem. Does anyone really know a safe place to store that?
