Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has announced they will soon begin attempting removal of more than 1200 spent nuclear fuel assemblies from a cooling pool more than 100 feet above ground at the severely damaged Fukushima #4 reactor. As previously reported by AlertsUSA Threat Journal on multiple occasions, scientists worldwide have warned for well over two years of the global dangers and implications of this process.
In the case of Fukushima Unit #4, the racks holding the fuel assemblies were damaged and deformed during the earthquake and explosion in March of 2011. The building is shattered, structurally unsound and highly vulnerable. In addition, spent nuclear fuel cannot be simply lifted into the air by a crane. It must be lifted and transferred at all times in water and heavily shielded structures.
During the removal process, if the fuel assemblies touch, are dropped or break open there is potential for uncontrolled nuclear reactions and explosions to occur.
