On March 11, 2011 the tsunami that hit Japan as a result of a large earthquake, not only caused a huge loss of life, but also caused damage to nuclear reactors. The extent of this damage was reported to the people around the world as the situation unfolded. However, there is much to be said about what the general public has not been told about this disaster.


In this podcast, we take a very deep look at the nuclear industry. Since the atomic age began, in 1945, the nuclear industry has been shoveling information to the general public that is not entirely honest.


What is the nature of the half life of radioactive isotopes? How does a cold shutdown actually work? Are fuel rods more dangerous when they come out of a reactor? Is radioactive waste safe? What is a scram? Is man-made radioactivity just like eating a banana? What is the nature of criticality? How long does it take for radioactive isotopes to decay?


We will take a look at the WIPP (Waste Isolation Pilot Plant) facility in Carlsbad, New Mexico. Dana Durnford explains how a truck fire in this nuclear waste repository cannot cause the damage that was reported. It was actually a nuclear detonation. Mr. Durnford goes on to explain how a facility of this kind causes a tremendous amount of radioactive nuclides to be released into the surrounding environment.


We also take a look at what happened in Fukushima, Japan with the four nuclear reactors that suffered severe damage. These power plants went through a series of nuclear detonations. It wasn't a hydrogen explosion, it wasn't a steam explosion, and it certainly was not a banana that exploded. When criticality happens, if it's not controlled, this will result in a nuclear detonation. In other words, this is an atomic bomb. What happened at Fukushima, and what continues to happen to this day, is a continual release of very dangerous high level radioactive isotopes into the water, the air, and the land.


Does this all sound preposterous? I invite you to listen to the podcast and arrive at your own conclusions. It's time to put your radar up and connect the dots yourself. People nowadays have to use critical analysis with all the information that they receive. You can't just believe it, because it's on the news.
