News Anchor Revolts

This explains why my Future Children of Fukushima article and the Chernobyl Horrors page have been the most viewed pages/articles I’ve ever posted. I’ve not met a nuclear apologist yet who could withstand the avalanche of evidence.

“I am a newscaster, but I couldn’t tell the true story on my news program,” says Jun Hori, a former anchor for NHK, the Japanese state broadcaster.

Hori says the network restricted what he and other journalists could say about Fukushima and moved more slowly than foreign media to report on the disaster and how far radiation was spreading. The attitude in the newsroom was not to question official information

Japan has dropped 31 places since 2011 in a World Press Freedom ranking compiled by the group Reporters Without Borders.

Japanese Doctor: “Tokyo should no longer be inhabited”

” contamination in the east part [of Tokyo] is 1000-4000 Bq/kg and the west part is 300-1000 Bq/kg. […] 0.5-1.5 Bq/kg before 2011. […] Tokyo should no longer be inhabited […] Contamination in Tokyo is progressing, and further worsened by urban radiation concentration”

 

Experts: Fukushima ‘globally enhanced’ cesium-137 levels in air by 2 to 3 orders of magnitude

 

Clearly detectable in tuna at California coast…

Sure enough every single fish without exception was radioactive. Every single one. They were all like clones of each other… all the same [levels of radioactive cesium from Fukushima].

  • Question: How much radioactive cesium is safe to eat?
  • Answer: Zero.

“On average, fish in the 33,000 tests had 18 becquerels per kilo of radioactive cesium… Some fish samples tested to date have had very high levels of radiation: one sea bass sample collected in July, for example, had 1,000 becquerels per kilogram of cesium.” -CTV

The Japanese government is now responsible for contaminating a large swath of the north Pacific and the fish that live in that irradiated environment.  This contamination is undeniable and continues daily constituting a crime, a massive crime on a scale seldom seen.  The collusion of other nuclear states in trying to minimize the perception of harm from this contamination makes them partners in the crime.  Fukushima is perhaps the greatest environmental crime ever perpetrated and it continues every day.

Legions of troll shills — and deluded true believers — attempt to type away the real harm spewing into the ocean.  They rely on old and discredited studies to pretend that the cancer and disease risks are negligible (to them), and that we should just accept this poisoning without taking action to oppose them.  This immoral position they hold must be challenged and their junk science called out as a fraud.

I have to say something.

Tepco to start fuel removal from Fukushima reactor 4 pool Monday

“Full-scale removal (from the accident-stricken unit) is a very important process in moving ahead with the plant’s decommissioning,” Tepco spokesman Masayuki Ono told a press conference adding that the experience will be useful in dealing with the three other units that were damaged in the 2011 nuclear crisis…

Once the container is filled with 22 fuel assemblies, it will be put on a trailer and taken to another pool in a different building about 100 meters away, which is expected to provide more stable conditions for keeping the fuel cool.”

Two and a half years after 4 meltdowns destroyed the nuclear reactors at Fukushima, TEPCO is finally going to try removing fuel rods from the destroyed pool, before they ignite and release more Chernobyl level catastrophes into the environment.

It’s quite beyond me why everyone responsible at TEPCO for this travesty isn’t in prison, or better yet, chained to a workstation in the radioactive plant.

But let’s examine these wondrous revelations from Japan (which should also be held responsible for contaminating our coastline).  What does this tell us?

“the experience will be useful in dealing with the three other units

 

It means they have no idea what they are doing in the slightest.  They never prepared for a situation where they would have to simply remove the dangerous fuel and store it elsewhere after a disaster.  TEPCO is manufacturing, dangerously storing, and babysitting the most deadly substances on earth, but they are still muddling through how to actually handle them safely.  This is Strangelove-level absurd.

What else does this article reveal (other than glossing over very real Crimes Against Humanity)?

“100 meters away, which is expected to provide more stable conditions for keeping the fuel cool.”

 

A wonderful 100 meter safe buffer, still in a tsunami and earthquake zone with several destroyed hot nuclear reactors that could make further repairs and excavation impossible if conditions worsen.  These are the best and brightest minds Japan has to offer?   Seems this is a TEPCO special, patently criminal in every respect with no accountability for the consequences of their catastrophic decisions – not in the past, nor in the future.

But hey, the nuclear industry is gonna save us!  It’s environmental and green!   Right.  I’m so glad we’re in the Post Truth Age.  Nothing matters anymore, because you can buy your way to a semi-plausible fairy tale out there in the media, and in the minds of the ignorant.

After two and a half years of essentially ongoing Crimes Against Humanity, poisoning the Pacific Ocean and the mainland of Japan, the government may finally get around to taking control of the site.

“The trade minister, who visited the facility late on Monday, blamed the operator’s lax maintenance for the leaks and said he would establish a task force to monitor the clean-up at the crippled plant to avoid further instances of leakages, in a clear indication that the government is taking control of recovery operations at the crippled plant.”

These are the ass clowns who are responsible for ensuring the safety of entire populations?  

These assholes should all be in cells, housed at the plant, rotting away as they shovel radioactive waste until they fucking die.

Japan Government May Use Emergency Reserves For Cleanup, Government Takes Control Of Recovery Operations From Tepco

A corporate state is fascism according to Benito Mussolini.  Can this be argued away as anything else?  I don’t think so.  Fight fascism.  Fight the corporate-state.
