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.

Nuclear industry lies include a one-size fits all concept called “dose” of radioactivity.  This is an apples vs. oranges fallacy.  Being beamed from outside your body vs. ingesting radiation and having it take up residence inside the nuclei of your cells are two completely different situations.  Any honest scientist must accept that.  The nuclear mafia employs very few of those.

Dr. Chris Busby:

Fukushima Fallout Damaged the Thyroids of California Babies

“For what is done by these people is to dismiss any evidence of increased rates of cancer or any other disease by shouting at it: “the doses were too low”. In this way, reality is airbrushed away. What is this quantity “dose”? It is a simple physics-based quantity which represents the absorption of energy from radiation. One Sievert of gamma radiation is one Joule per kilogram of living tissue.

This might work for external radiation. But it doesn’t work for internal exposures to radioactive elements which can produce huge effects on cellular DNA at low average “doses”. It is like comparing warming yourself in front of the fire with eating a hot coal. Or comparing a punch to stabbing. Same dose, same energy. Very different effects…

Our paper reports 44 confirmed thyroid cancer cases in 0-18 year olds in Fukushima prefecture in the last six months (a figure that has since risen to 53). In the hypothyroidism paper we discuss the 44 cases relative to the population and calculate that this represents an 80-fold excess based on national data prior to the Fukushima Iodine releases.

This presents a severe challenge to Dr Wolfgang Weiss of the UN and WHO, who stated last year that no thyroid cancers could result from the Fukushima disaster as the “doses were too low”. How does he explain the 80-fold increase in this normally rare condition?

Or rather, when will he admit that the entire scientific model that underpins his views is fraudulent? And that nuclear radiation is – roughly speaking – 1,000 times more dangerous to human health than he is letting on?”

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.

The Future Children of Fukushima

 

fukushima3

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.

Organized crime racket TEPCO knows nothing, absolutely nothing, about why levels spike and continue to contaminate the environment two years and four months after their multiple reactors exploded on live television.

Cesium levels surge 90-fold over 3-day period at Fukushima nuke plant

As the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) acts to cover up disasters like these, including Chernobyl and Fukushima, relying on a flimsy “no biomarkers” defense, the world will likely continue to ignore this major environmental calamity.  Still poisoning the Pacific Ocean daily with BILLIONS of becquerels of Cesium released constantly from the melted down reactors, no end is in sight to this crime against humanity.

To put this “becquerel” measurement into perspective, a becquerel is one radioactive discharge per second, which is measurable by sensitive detectors.  A leading doctor, who has treated the children of Chernobyl for decades, in Belarus, has published papers regarding illnesses caused by internal cesium contamination:

“Chronic Cs-137 levels over 30 (becquerels per kilogram) body weight is often associated with serious cardiovascular diseases.”

For children with cesium 137 in excess of 50 Becquerels/kg body weight,

“pathological disorders of the vital organs or systems will occur.”

“children having 5 Bq/kg more than 80% are healthy, while having 11 Bq/kg only 35% of children are healthy.”
-Dr. Yuri Bandashevsky

Now you’re on your own to put that BILLIONS of becquerels per day gushing out of Fukushima into perspective.  Enjoy your Pacific fish.

And more:

Obama’s openly fascist “Environmental Protection Agency” (sic)  just raised the “permissible” levels of radiation that you and your children can suffer under when the next radioactive meltdown happens.

JOHN LaFORGE:

“The late Dr. Rosalie Bertell made clear 36 years ago in Robert Del Tredici’s book At Work In the Fields of the Bomb, ‘The people with the highest vested interest are the ones that are making the nuclear bombs. And it turns out they have complete control over setting the permissible [radiation exposure] levels.’”

…[Daniel] Hirsch says that the National Council on Radiation Protection’s plans for implementing the new PAGs “would allow the public to be exposed to extraordinarily higher levels of radiation than previously permitted” during reactor accident emergencies. The new PAGs also allow extremely high contamination of food, he says.“In essence,” Hirsch reports, the PAGs say “nuclear power accidents could be so widespread and produce such immense radiation levels that the government would abandon cleanup obligations” forcing people to absorb and live with far more cancers.

Still glad you go for that so-called “lesser evil” voting?

How difficult is it to hire two evil guys for you to choose from?
