[PLEASE DISSEMINATE!] Urgent Petition: Fukushima Unit 4 Fuel Pool in Danger of Massive Radiation Release


Fukushima Unit 4 Fuel Pool Would Explode with An Aftershock!

Crippled Fukushima Unit 4 Fuel Pool contains 1533 bundles of nuclear fuel. If the pool would drain to the point where the nuclear fuels are exposed to air, zircaloy cladding would burn, and radiation will not only ruin the entire North-East and East part of Japan but cause the world wide catastrophe.

Mr. Gundersen’s Warning: August 31st 2012
“If another big earthquake occurred, Unit 4 building would collapse. Though TEPCO says it will transfer the fuels after producing 100t. casks, it IS possible to do so with 50t. casks. 600 fuels with low level of decay heat must be taken out by using these smaller casks. If the pool loses water, zircaloy cladding will burn. TEPCO has NOT considered this danger, nor prepared chemical extinguisher for this probable accident. Brookhaven National Lab determined that 186,000 would die of cancer if the nuclear fuel like unit 4 burned. That means the worst catastrophe we have ever experienced. Please remove the fuels out of the pool and prevent such a catastrophe.”


What will happen if the pool fire occurs?
The total amount of nuclear fuels at Chernobyl Nuclear Plant is 180tons.
Its accident caused the release of 7tons radiation.
Fukushima Unit 4 contains 280tons of nuclear fuels, and if it collapses, the amount of the nuclear release will be ten times larger than that from Chernobyl.(184kg/fuel rod × 1533 bundles = 280t)
Moreover, 1960tons of spent nuclear fuel are stored around the entire Fukushima Daiichi site.

If no workers can stay for their operation, all other units (1,2,3,5 and 6) will be out of control. Then we have to expect a serial explosions and runaway nuclear chain reactions.

PLEASE help us overcome this crisis. This is a serious, world-wide issue as well!!!
