Radio Ecoshock bonus overtime feature April 29th show.
Let's knock out some of the wilder stories first. I am ruling out "aliens did it", drug visions, and and astrological explanations. You can find all those on the Net.
But was Fukushima made worse by a secret weapons program? Did the Americans cause this disaster with HAARP?
SECRET WEAPONS PROGRAM AND FUKUSHIMA
One blogger, citing Chinese sources, says the big quake and Fukushima accident are the result of a secret Japanese nuclear weapons test. He says:
"Chinese experts say that this was not an earthquake, a top-secret testing of nuclear weapons."
Believers in this theory use Net photos of a mysterious whirlpool, which could be a result of tsunami. The General theory is the Japanese, who are experts at tunnels (they made the deepest railway tunnel in world), - constructed a secret underwater nuclear base, which blew up, causing the quake. Radiation at reactors was to cover up a secret test March 9th, they say.
There is zero proof. It would have to be a really big nuclear weapon, since  estimates of the single 9.0 quake power is one million kiloton bombs. The largest U.S. nuclear bomb test was reportedly 15 Megatons. The Soviet Union allegedly blew up a 60 megaton monster.
I don't believe this theory. But there is evidence Japan wants a nuclear weapon and has the capability to make them. I'll talk about that a little later.
