(Japan) – The Japanese are sitting on a virtual ticking time bomb that could result in a horrific nuclear volcanic eruption. Recently scientist discovered what is now known to be the largest volcano on the planet earth residing directly under the toxic tides of uncontrolled radioactive waste being expelled into the ocean.
As unsuppressed irradiated waste seeps into the volcano Tamu Massif, it is feared that the combination of volatile chemicals will ignite a violent eruption. If said eruption were to occur, it would result in a massive underwater explosion sending toxic debris flying in all directions of the Earth. The fallout would also result in gigantic radioactive tsunamis, earthquakes and enormous casualties in marine life. This catastrophic event could permanently alter ecosystems and contaminate the ocean rendering it permanently uninhabitable.
Once the radiation causes the volcano to erupt it will also create toxic lava which will find its way to the surface and dry into literal floating islands of glowing, radioactive rock which will spew poisonous nerve gas into the atmosphere.
Tamu Massif is located about a thousand miles east of Japan, having been dormant for millions of years. Scientists have now discovered the dome-shaped behemoth has a footprint the size of New Mexico.
Ironically, the only solution that has been proposed is to bomb the underwater volcano with a nuclear warhead. By propelling an explosive device deep into the Pacific Ocean officials hope the resulting blast will clog the mouth of the volcano and effectively nullify any dangers.
Environmentalist call this plan ludicrous and declared the added nuke could actually make matters worse. Not only will the wicked Death Plum more than double in size, but it could also result in the actual turning of the sea tides as well. While the strategy might quell the bubbling cauldron that is Tamu Massif, it still does not account for the mass loss of sea life that will surely result through this “fix”.
