I don't think so, and I will explain why, with the chart below.
Reports of problems, or potential problems, with nuclear power plants, have risen. There are two possible reasons for this:
- There is an increased number of actual problems
- The number of actual problems have remained constant, but media scrutiny has increased
The Mainstream media is interested in having readership and a viewing audience. They care about ratings, because it means higher revenue. With the tsunami triggering the awful situation with the Fukushima nuclear power plants, the public became worried about a similar thing happening to them. Since the public is interested in it, the newspapers and TV stations will produce stories investigating such situations. And a story where disaster is imminent sells better than where everything is almost surely alright, such that there is a motivation for media hype.
Thus, for one example among many, there is flooding of the Missouri River, causing worries about the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant in Nebraska. But there are multiple levels of redundant fail-safes, and people carefully monitoring the situation. Just as there were for the past few decades, in cases you have not heard about. Just now, you are hearing of all these things that go on behind the scenes. And this flood of information is worrying, to the public that does not have sufficient knowledge of the situation and keeps hearing scary stories on the news. And so this feeds into the frenzy, and increases the motivation for the media to seek out and hype up such stories.
The situation is similar when it comes to delusional tractor drivers, including Nir Ben Artzi. Some awful event occurs and suddenly he notices it. And it becomes worked into his delusions. Thus, at the beginning of the year, there was not a word about Japan. It was all about how China would cease to be a country. Not a word about tsunamis. Not a word about nuclear meltdowns. Suddenly, the tsunami hits in Japan, sparking the likelihood of nuclear meltdowns, and he starts speaking all the time about how Japan would cease to be a country. And he adds tsunamis to his long list of disasters he speaks about each week. And he starts predicting nuclear meltdowns. Of course, it all needs to fit into his worldview, which is Hashem punishing the wicked nations, and so it is only wicked nuclear power plants which will be destroyed. (In other words, he was explicitly NOT talking about the one in Nebraska.) Similarly, he was not talking about Australia until disaster struck Australia.
So there you have it. Both the increased coverage in the media and the increased discussion by delusional tractor drivers are effects of the initial disaster. But that does not mean that in substance, there is increased incidence of nuclear meltdown, or that this was all predicted by a psychic in Israel.
