Fukushima radiation at dangerous levels again

The danger at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is not over.

Bloomberg just reported:

Tokyo Electric Power Co. found a dangerous level of radiation at its wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant, eight months after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that caused the worst atomic crisis in 25 years.

Workers at the company usually called Tepco detected 620 millisieverts of radiation an hour on the first floor of Reactor 3 on Nov. 3, the highest level found in that unit, it said.

The level of radiation is more than the 500-millisievert short-term dose recommended as the maximum for emergency workers in live-saving situations, according to the World Nuclear Association.

    Hi, here’s Michel Montecrossa’s song ‘Talkin’ End Game: It’s The Radioactive Song’

    Michel Montecrossa says about ‘Talkin’ End Game: It’s The Radioactive Song’:
    “Nuclear disasters, human disasters, natural disasters are all warnings and strong calls to turn to a higher evolution of consciousness.
    In the emergence of a knowing instead of an ignorant humanity would be the hope for a more harmonious and less desctructive evolutionary drive on terrestrial world.”
