Fukushima world’s radiation nightmare

Fukushima world’s radiation nightmare

Fukushima is Japan's and the world’s radiation nightmare that will not go away in our lifetimes nor our children’s or grandchildren’s. The Fukushima nuclear power plant is hemorrhaging radioactive toxic waste into the ocean and though we are told not to panic, nor even to be casually concerned, the situation is dangerous and critical to future life on earth.

Ever since March 11, 2011, the damaged plant has been leaking tremendous amounts of radiation. Now Tepco, the operator of the damaged facility, says they have recorded spikes between 50-70 times above average readings in the gutters that pour water into a nearby bay.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority said February 22, 2015, that an alarm went off at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant signaling high radioactivity levels in drainage ditches. According to the NRA and plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co., the first alarm sounded at around 10 a.m., and another alarm 10 minutes later indicated much higher levels.

The levels of beta ray-emitting substances, such as strontium-90, measured 5,050 to 7,230 becquerels per liter of water between 10:20 a.m. and 10:50 a.m. Tepco requires radioactivity levels of groundwater at the plant discharged into the sea to remain below 5 becquerels. However, it was revealed that Tepco knew about the problem all the way back in May of last year and did not report it.

An official at the plant apologized, saying that, “the trust of the people in Fukushima is the most important thing,” and that “we’ve been working with that in mind, but unfortunately, we have damaged that trust this time,” according to Digital Journal. The situation at Fukushima is obviously much worse than authorities are leading us to believe. Newsweek reported on the continuing disaster saying, “The fallout from the Fukushima disaster is far from over. A staggering number of accidents has plagued the plant.”

Strontium mimics calcium making it extremely dangerous to all life forms once it is absorbed. Local, national and international fury once again rises against TEPCO as this latest indication that the crisis at the plant is far from under control. Japan’s top government spokesperson reiterated the government’s long-standing mantra, “The situation is completely under control. Any negative impact of radioactive water on the environment is completely blocked.” TEPCO was aware since April of last year and did nothing to prevent contaminated water from leaking directly out to sea.

Scientists are able to actually measure what they say are very low levels of radiation in the ocean that are now reaching the west coast of North America. Their instruments read the radiation and so can the cells in a person’s body. We are toldnot to worry and certainly not to panic. In fact, nuclear power plants are still promoted as safe even though they offer potential hell to life. Prince William was recently near Fukushima juggling balls for the children, eating locally produced foods and planting trees, promoting the safety of the area and that is understandable considering how deeply the royal family is into the nuclear industry.

Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist at The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution said, "I certainly wouldn't discourage people from swimming or eating fish from the Pacific because of levels that low. It sounds scary because it's radioactivity, it's Fukushima and it's detectable.” Only problem is if there is any strontium in the fish one could get leukemia!

Low levels of radiation are extremely dangerous

There has long been public concern about risks from low-level radiation, which is understandable in light of the fact that you may be exposed and yet never know it. Dr. Boyd Haley, the ex-chairman of the chemistry department from Kentucky University warns us that even low levels are dangerous and should be everyone’s concern. It is widely understood that there is no 'safe' level of radioactivity. Any amount can kill. The more radioactivity, the greater the impacts. As the National Council on Radiation Protection has declared: "Every increment of radiation exposure produces an incremental increase in the risk of cancer."

On February 18, 2014, the Aichi Prefectural Police arrested a construction firm executive for sending a 15-year-old boy to help clean up radioactive waste outside the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant. That executive, the press and governmental agencies around the world all agree that the situation should not be of concern. So do not bother with iodine or anything else like sodium bicarbonate, which both are inexpensive ways to protect oneself and one’s children from radioactive contamination.

A radiation plume from the March, 2011 nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan took about 2.1 years to travel via ocean currents and ultimately cross the waters of the Pacific Ocean to reach the shores of North America. That is according to to a study at the end of 2014 (December 29) by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

For the first time since the catastrophic 2011 earthquake, Japan has been rocked with a series of stronger tremors, with two 6.0+ stronger quakes recorded in February 2015. It is unclear if the new leaks are directly related to the recent surge in tectonic activity. RT News said that contamination levels fell quickly, but still measured 10 to 20 times more than prior to the leak.

Death is coming

The year is 2015 and already “It’s like a scene from a horror movie along the West Coast. “We’re seeing all sorts of mysterious goings-on.” “There is no food out there.” Scientists cannot figure out why there is mass starvation of seabirds. Sardines and crayfish have disappeared from the Pacific Ocean; they have just vanished. Marine mammals are starving, struggling to survive on the West Coast. Reports are coming in up and down the coast of a mysterious surge in sick marine mammals infested with parasites, and being extremely emaciated.

At Fukushima where 4 reactors are still out of control and spewing radiation many think this has caused the death in the Pacific of thousands of baby sea lions on the California coast, and 500 navy soldiers are still suffering from radiation poisoning after responding to the earlier Fukushima disaster. We also have reports that West Coast orca whales are experiencing extremely high infant mortality rates as radiation from Fukushima drifts across the ocean. An adult killer whale weighing up to 5,000 kilograms can eat 5% of its body weight, or 250 kilograms of fish, per day. Researchers are also alarmed by 'puzzling' changes in orca’s behavior.

As far south as Peru dolphins and sea lions were found dead but no reliable explanations are given. Governments everywhere refuse to make any connection between the deaths and Fukushima. In fact, officially no one has died from radiation from Fukushima. Yet we find scientists saying that right after the accident death rates of infants increased in North America. This is of course adamantly denied by all devotees of nuclear energy.

Jiřina Vitázková and Errico Cazzoli wrote, “The results with respect to health effects show that within 80 years the number of victims of the Fukushima disaster can be expected to be at least in the range of 10,000 to 300,000 people in terms of deaths due to infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases, genetic diseases and cancers; and about the same number of sicknesses/syndromes needing prolonged hospitalization and health care are expected to occur. This estimate accounts only for the population already living at the time of the accident. A comparable number of excess deaths and sicknesses may be expected in the population that will be born in the period. In addition to these, more than 100,000 excess still-births and a comparable or larger number of excess children born with genetic deformations (e.g. Down syndrome) are expected.”

The toxic substances such as Tritium, Cesium, Plutonium and Strontium are being carried everywhere by winds, rain and ocean currents, entering the food chain through seaweed and seafood, building up high levels of toxicity in the fish – and humans – at the top end of the consumption chain.

It is the contention of this book that all levels of radiation are threatening. When levels increase, even by small amounts, we humans, and all the life around us will suffer from increasing cancer rates thus demanding that doctors learn and teach their patients to take defensive measures. We live in a contaminated world (chemical, heavy metal and radiation) that is getting more toxic day by day. I calculate that 20 tons of mercury are put into the air by all the coal fire plants in the world but government officials obsess only with carbon dioxide, a safe necessary gas that is not bringing warming to our world.

Doctors, who themselves expose their patients to radiation tests and treatments have to calculate the rising risks of combined radiation exposure. Eco Watch lists fifty reasons that we should not trust our governments nor the press, and why we should fear the worst from Fukushima.

Projecting a death toll of more than a million from the radioactivity released from Fukushima is Dr. Chris Busby, scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk who has been a professor at a number of universities. "Fukushima is still boiling radionuclides all over Japan", he said. "Chernobyl went up in one go. So Fukushima is worse."

Dr. Helen Caldicott, a founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility, told a symposium on 'The Medical Implications of Fukushima' said, "The accident is enormous in its medical implications. It will induce an epidemic of cancer as people inhale the radioactive elements, eat radioactive vegetables, rice and meat, and drink radioactive milk and teas. As radiation from ocean contamination bio-accumulates up the food chain ... radioactive fish will be caught thousands of miles from Japanese shores. As they are consumed, they will continue the cycle of contamination, proving that no matter where you are, all major nuclear accidents become local. The Fukushima disaster is not over and will never end. The radioactive fallout which remains toxic for hundreds to thousands of years covers large swaths of Japan will never be 'cleaned up' and will contaminate food, humans and animals virtually forever."

Apart from a vanishingly small number of "good"' people, the vast majority of humanity are either acively psychotic or actively indifferent. The sooner the plague of homo "sapiens" is extinct the better. What a crying shame that the infinitely beautiful NATURAL world pays such a devastating price for our hubris :(

Japan has $800 TRILLION IN SURPLUS - why aren't they spending it to rectify this? Research it, they have the world's $ to fix the entire world's environment. So why aren't they? $800 TRILLION BUCKS... and they do nothing but eco-terrorism... hmmm.... thanks for poisoning my fish, food and air punks and dumb hoes!

My wife is Japanese and is telling me not to travel to Japan. She is reading about the situation getting worse in terms of radioactive plumes and clouds/fog which are coming out as a result of continued denigration of the cores and their mix with water. Neither she nor I are experts. The person who is writing about these alarm bells is a scientist or doctor named Mr. Iiyama. Here is the link to his blog. It seems like he is not being picked up by any media or even by sites such as your own. I would like to see some comments on whether what he is saying is credible. For example, he is pointing to unusual cloud formations and fog as evidence of radioactive plumes which he says indicate we have come to a new level of seriousness even for Tokyo and other parts of Japan. Sorry this is all in Japanese but maybe someone who understands Japanese can help explain it to me as my wife does not have sufficient technical English skill to do so and the automatic translation services are not of much use. Anyway I suggest websites such as yours find a way to contact IIyama and understand what he is saying and why he thinks the threat has become worse in recent months. http://grnba.com/iiyama/16idx.htm#tegeIDX

How about what just hit Japan on 8-14-15? There is one more trunami that's going to nail reactor 2. And this is it.
I seen it happen. Potassium Iodide is a trick and a test of
Faith. Put your trust in Christ. Not into this machine.

Disinfo and Pro-nuke..whatever

3/11/11-FDNPP R4:
...recently serviced with NEW fuel rods. spent fuel on site in storage. how many is irrelevant, lets just say it must be in the thousands for this 1 reactor to run proficiently.
....transcripts of conversation, on 3/11/11 between the NRC and another agency confirmed that R4 [reactor 4] was "dry". "confirm containment loss".."check, it's all gone".."confirm check [other agency] reactor 4 gone"..then there was some scientific data thrown around. "well that's it, what is understood here".." we are in agreement, confirm that".."yes we all agree"..

Why do you think there is so much being said about the "earth ending" R4? Because it down-plays the seriousness of 4 nuclear meltdowns. It's reverse psychology..sort of.
What you choose to believe is your business. Me? I know the world ended on that fateful day. We are witnessing the destruction of Earth at an outstanding pace. Just look at the weather anomalies since 3/11, it's not rocket science that Fuku did a hell of a lot of damage to the upper atmosphere and it's emissions are ongoing..forever.
Maybe way in the future our planet will end up like Mars..there IS evidence of water..
And, if you really think about, in light of the way things are progressing, would it be far fetched to say that Mars..was..Earth.

My son, a navy AOAN, was deployed on the USS Reagan when it sailed through a cloud of radiation during the earthquake/tsunami. Since then he has had two basal cell carcinoma's removed from his scalp. I know BSC is non-cancerous, but one never knows if this would have happened had the reactor not exploded and had he not been exposed to radiation. He knows of other sailors who have had more severe illnesses due to their exposure. Nonetheless, I am very proud of our Navy and my son and he is proud he served.

geo 1 year ago

guys the solution is easy it's just expensive.

from the start they could have just terra-form the damn area.
block the ground water

dig holes and dam it up as someone said already to block any ground water from leaking in or it will severely hamper it at the bare min.

then once the dam is complete we can start also adding extra land mass to fukushima until it is suitable for encasing into a sarcophagus.

done.

It'll cut the area out of the picture for 1000s of years but Japan TOUGH it is necessary.
otherwise I propose damming up japan and have them eat all the radioactive water they spew out.

if we wanted to we can build walls to circle japan and have them eat their own waste water.

Eventually no one will live in Japan and it would be a wasteland.
Yes Japan you really should consider your actions. I don't want to be mean but their government + Tepco are too corrupt to do anything at this point we need to kick them out of this.

marty on maui (@geo) 7 months ago

i agree with your solution of terra-forming except that TPTB will not even admit to a problem, let alone a solution...therefore...no money to back the project...no intelligent solution

one point you may be missing is that the same potential for catastrophe exists in mainland USA and we have been seriously radiologically exposed by the local shennanigans of the NRC, et cetera...6000 nuke probs right here in good old USA...for decades

your final point i also must agree with about getting rid of the corruption...problem is: who guards the guards?

bottom line?...we humans just committed planetary suicide/ecocide

funnny point: most folks still don't know it yet

Just thinking out (not being sadist) but maybe sinking that part of the land into the SEA may be a good thing or blow it up in 1 go like Chernobyl

Mary (@learhsa) 1 year ago

Well OBVIOUSLY sinking it into the ocean isn't helpful! It needs to be contained, not released further! Maybe a wall of concrete poured 100 feet deep or so around the damaged portion, and fracking technology used around it at every two angles with concrete injected wouldn't hurt. Glassification can be performed at the perimeter and deep horizontal injection of very thick concrete around the areas of contamination is a start. I believe it needs to be held in place this way so small amounts can be injected into deep wells lined with excessive concrete. Yes, it needs the cooperation of the entire globe. Come on ISIS, you too if you are such bad asses! Be useful.

Average article, terrible use of language and many assumptions about things, with a severe lack of citations for critical points. I used to be an industrial radiographer so I've worked with rad level waaay higher than described in this article, some of the things mentioned show a base misunderstanding of radiation and even electromagnetism.

What measures can be taken to control this ongoing catastrophe? Cement encasement like Chernobyl? Wouldnt that require off loading the contaminated water to a taker? Or just sluicing it into the ocean? Are they just waiting for the right environmental catastrophe to create a break in the containment so the problem will be taken care of by accident?

Isn't it odd that there's still no National or International governmental or public acknowledgement that the catastrophic radiation from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear plant in Japan is potentially destroying the earth and all life forms with radiation? It's exponentially more destructive than Chernobyl disaster twenty five years ago. WHY? Because tons of radiated water used to cool three melted-down nuclear reactor cores has been flowing into the ocean for the last FOUR years and has spread around the globe by the water and air currents, causing soil contamination and the poisoning of the food supply chain. Because it would cause unnecessary panic and economic disaster? Because the Elites want to keep draining the economic bloodlines dry? For what purpose? Soon there will be only contaminated food to eat, water to drink; no money to spend or people to control. This an eschatological sequence of events, an end-of-life scenario playing out and nobody seems to care. For now, just more collusion, cognative dissonance and denial. All I can say is, make yourself right with your Creater because you will be meeting Him soon and there’s going to be an abundance of pain and suffering along the way.

How long does it take to get a comment to be posted ?? when it states that the so called powers that be are covering up the truth and acting like the three monkeys, with more important things to do.

Walter Millsap 1 year ago

This is by far the worst world wide atrocity,our world could ever have and where are all of our so called leaders ?? Why hasn't Obama ordered all hands on deck to put an end to the madness ? why is it against the law in Japan to speak out about the off the charts rise in cancer rates ? Where is all of the honest reporting from our news agencies ,that are supposed to be watching out for us and giving us the honest truth. It's my opinion: that this lie and coverup is going to catch up to those people intrusted to do the right thing for humanities sake and there will be little forgiveness from the masses. God help us all.....

Interesting... some people still think in terms of children and grandchildren, and likely even great grandchildren. Very optomistic. One day, some survivors may look at this for what it actually is... humanity's extinction level event. Game over...

Chernobyl disaster was a uranium reactor explosion that was quickly brought under control by the quick thinking of the people responsible and the devotion of thousands of volunteers to contain the disaster and limit the fallout . 30 years after, the estimated death toll is over 1 million people.
fukashima disaster was a plutonium reactor meltdown and is still 4 years later burning its way into the earth underneath the broken reactor and polluting the environment everyday, plutonium is 100,000 times more deadly than uranium and lasts that much longer than uranium, we can only expect the death toll after 30 years to be 100,000 times bigger than Chernobyl , but I fear that this is a very conservative projection because Chernobyl only leaked for a short period of time , whereas fukashima is still releasing huge amounts of radiation , so we could be realistically looking at 1 billion human deaths or suffering from serious illness's from this disaster in the next 30 years and the cost to the rest of the earths indigenous species could be even higher with loss of habitat and species die off, which we are already seeing now in the pacific

The ongoing times in 2015 ( astrologically speaking) are not as harmonious to energy sector as one would have liked. A total solar eclipse is taking place on 20 March 2015 followed by lunar eclipse on 4 April 2015. In these circumstances, reported leakage of radioactive water from Fukushima nuclear plant is a cause of concern. It is hoped Japan government is taking all necessary steps.
