TOKYO — A power failure at the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan has stopped the flow of cooling water to four fuel storage pools.
The core is melting faster.
When the radioactive core reaches the water table, it will cause a huge explosion.
This will send a huge radioactive cloud above the world.
This is an emergency situation.
Japan must evacuate everyone.
Experts warned that the current cooling systems,
some of which were hastily built by engineers frantically struggling to regain control of the overheating reactors, could be knocked out by another earthquake.
President Obama needs to issue an Executive Order, requiring all Utilities, like PG&E to immediately begin paying home owners with solar panels $1. kwh for feeding solar onto the grid.
That is the first step, as the US prepares to shut down all of its old, fragile, frail atomic reactors.
Solar energy can keep the US running as we shut down all reactors.
It is silly to say, but
to see what is really happening inside the doomed atomic plant,
watch the movie "China Syndrom".
That movie was the best source of truthful information of what an atomic emergency will look like from the inside.
In balance, it costs far less for California to install millions of solar panels, on private homes and farms, than it does to use gas, oil, coal or nuclear energy.
The easiest way to save money with solar is for each home to install 50 panels and the get paid by the Utility, PG&E, at $0.54 kwh for harvesting solar and feeding it onto the grid.
There is a huge amount of money to be made by home owners who sell surplus solar onto the grid.
Home owners in Germany are now making $60,000. a year by feeding solar onto the grid.
Germany made the change from coal and atomic by first building home with highly insulated walls and double pane windows.
Then Germany created a new law that requires Utilities to pay home owners who feed solar onto the grid. They are paid $0.54 kwh for 20 years.
This market based solar economy was first described in a book by Hermann Scheer, "The Solar Economy".
His newest book is "Energy Imperative".
Homeowners in Germany are becoming rich harvesting solar energy and being paid to feed it onto the grid.
They can now pay off their home mortgages faster because of the FIT, ( feed in tariff ) law requiring PG&E to buy solar from them. This FIT has created 500,000 new solar jobs in Germany. The FIT has created a huge cash flow of $5 billion into the Germany economy.
The Prime Minister of Japan, Naoto Kan, read both books before the meltdown at Fukushima.
I also recommend seeing 2 movies about this: "China Syndrome" which beautifully details why the atomic plants in Japan, France and the US are all too old, too frail to last any longer.
All atomic plants in the world are now too old to be allowed to operate.
They are all accidents waiting to happen.
Where does the money come from in solar energy?
Japan now pays home owners $0.53 kwh for feeding solar onto their grid, in their quest to achieve 100% solar & wind by 2030.
Can Japan create all their power from solar & wind?
Yes they can.
To prove it, they have shut down all their atomic reactors,
and shut down all neon advertising signs, as they ramp up solar and wind.
The Germany economy will become 100% solar & renewables by 2030.
Japan will follow, a few year later.
Germany became solar because they planned to go solar.
Japan is becoming a solar powered nation, because of their accident.
Japanese people are very opposed to atomic energy.
Now Japan is going rapidly towards solar because they realize they and the whole earth have no choice.
We must go solar active now or we will all become radioactive in the next 10 years.
