We are four days into the New Year. For those who celebrated voraciously, hangovers are gone, heads are cleared and all are back into the routine of daily life. One of those routines for many is checking your Facebook page or other social media network. Now, if you are like me, you get what seems to be some pretty incredible posts, links or announcements so you may skim over them while uttering to yourself about the incredible amount of misinformation that mires the information super highway that is the internet.

Actually, I did the same thing to a posting thinking that if it were actually true, major news media outlets would pick it up. What was I thinking? Since that did not happen, I began to do my own research into this seemingly farcical piece. Needless to say, over one dozen windows ended up opened on my internet browser trying to discover where this all originated, is it true and what does it mean.

Here is the story to which I am referring, "Underground Nuclear Explosion At Crippled Japan Atomic Plant Shocks World." Upon looking at the "source" from the bottom, it directs to a page called "What does it mean." You can put it in any search engine and find the page, which then leads you to the same story.

After doing my own research, I am left with two burning questions – What in the Sam Hill is going on at Fukushima? And, why in the devil are the American public not being informed about recent developments?

Now, follow along with me here for just a moment. We all know that Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) initially lied to the international community about the severity of the accident at the Fukushima-Daichi nuclear plant in March 11, 2011. We now know that reactors 1 and 3 had meltdowns and reactors 1,3, and 4 experienced hydrogen explosions. We also know that Japan has enacted legislation that is intended to protect state secrets which might help in hiding "revelations about government mismanagement that helped trigger the Fukushima nuclear accident" and make leaking information about Fukushima a state offense, carrying a hefty criminal sentence. We are familiar with the stories regarding the 300 tons of water per day entering the Pacific Ocean since the accident. Reports of dying sea creatures along America's Pacific coast have surfaced. A man sailing from Japan across the Pacific reported the ocean seeming dead or lifeless. Recently, it has been reported that our government has ordered millions of doses of Potassium Iodide. Remember the earthquakes around the ring of fire that has produced a new land mass? Yes, that was near Tokyo and a professor was urging attention to be paid then.

The 2011 interview with Michio Kaku, a respected professor and physicist, helps explain the severity. Pay close attention to what he says about America's own Indian Point Nuclear Plant located in New York. A disaster at Indian Point could cost $200 billion. Also, remember from this interview that the federal government underwrites the insurance for all US nuclear plants since no insurance company will insure them; the federal government money comes from taxpayers. Did you catch the part where Obama is supporting the establishment of new nuclear power facilities for the US?

ENEnews, established after the Fukushima disaster to report the latest energy-related developments, reports that from December 19 – 27, 2013, steam was observed coming from the Fukushima Unit 3 reactor building. The same site reports the steam is from constant radioactive releases – coming from hot rubble, not new explosions. Just as recently as January 2, 2014, ENEnews posted that a nuclear expert indicated the Fukushima reactor cores melted into the ground and that radioactive material is getting washed out into the Pacific Ocean. On January 3, 2014, it was reported why the steam coming from Fukushima Unit Reactor 3 was important; "reactor 3 could be showing signs that Corium may be causational to a possible future disaster issue to the mixture of Corium with the radioactive water which would cause a violent reaction."

Now, not being a nuclear physicist or scientist, I cannot attest to the truth of what will or will not happen with regards to this situation as the technical information amounts to speaking to me in a foreign language. What I can say is the information that I have highlighted, except for the initial story that started my search, should be taken as accurate and truthful. Nuclear disasters don't happen and then are miraculously under control and stopped because the news media ceases to cover it. The Fukushima disaster is still active, is still potentially catastrophic and will remain so until it is under control; however, some experts think a disaster of this magnitude will not be able to be controlled.

On December 28, 2013, Turner Radio Network issued an urgent news flash: "Persons residing on the west coast of North America should IMMEDIATELY begin preparing for another possible onslaught of dangerous atmospheric radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site in Japan. The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) says radioactive steam has suddenly begun emanating from previously exploded nuclear reactor building #3 at the Fukushima disaster site in Japan. TEPCO says they do not know why this is happening and cannot go into the building to see what's happening due to damage and lethal radiation levels in that building. Experts say this could be the beginning of a "spent fuel pool criticality (meltdown)" involving up to 89 TONS of nuclear fuel burning up into the atmosphere and heading to North America."

So, what does all this mean? It means something very serious is occurring at the Fukushima Daichi nuclear plant that suffered a catastrophic nuclear disaster almost 3 years ago and there is virtually no information being presented through main stream media. It means, America, we are on our own when it comes to finding out important information that has the potential to impact our country and our very lives; therefore, we must take the precautions we deem necessary to protect ourselves.
