Rob: Tell me about Fukushima
In NY I directed an investigation of nuclear plants, we found that guys who build nuclear plants lie. about the cost, about the safety.
Stone and Webster was found guilty of conspiracy, racketeering and fraud charges against.
I have the notebooks which say that the earthquake proofing had been faked.
In the case of Fukushima, one of the lies spread by the US media, like Anderson Cooper, was that no-one expected a 9.0 earthquake to hit Fukushima.
The nuclear plant at Fukushima, was well under the tolerance Fukushima was supposed to handle.
All the emergency Diesel generators failed. Same used by all the plants– most are old cruise ship engines. They are supposed to snap on when there’s an accident. But cruise ships warm up their engines for h ours before torquing. So, when the Nuclear plants need the power, they have 12 seconds to fire up. So they fail. They know they will fail. They are like Xmas decorations.
There are some “greenies” who say we should resuscitate the Nuclear industry– like Obama.
Rob: So, Stone and Webster are the ones who built Fukushima.
They are literally rebuilding Fukushima, with a new name, Shaw Construction.
They are the problem. They are the danger.
