Three bizarre deaths at U.S. nuke plants in the last 30 days, uncontrolled gas flow on the Gulf of Mexico seabed and a rise in spontaneous combustion deaths….now that’s hard news you won’t get from mass media. Friends, I hear to tell you there’s no one covering environmental news like Christina Consolo, if you haven’t listened to her show PLEASE take the time to listen.Then share, share, share and tell your contacts to do the same…mass media will NOT cover this story until mushroom clouds appear in the background, because they’re owned by the power industry.
Christina really needs help getting this message out to as many people as possible, this is thorough investigative reporting that covers the most important environmental issues affecting the safety, health and well being of every living thing on the planet.
Also a link below to her discussion at the end of the show about the sudden rise in spontaneous combustion deaths and vehicular incidents,last week around the time of the Kansas City restaurant explosion. It’s beginning to sound like someone needs to devise an “affordable” meter to detect increased levels of BOTH methane and hydrogen sulfide….ahhh heck, come to think of it they need to add radon and radioactive elements to the detection meter to cover the atmospheric hazards. Think about it, breathing air is getting as bad as eating food from the toxic, contaminated food supply!
Well the first thing we can do is ENTIRELY eliminate “fear” of any of these elements and deal with it as best we can by boosting our immune system and rasing our conscious vibration out of fear mode, there are plenty of excellent recommendations on the right under the category Radioactivity from Fukushima, Radiation Anti-dotes and Remedies.

Nuclear Expert Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education: The Fairewinds site has been getting a lot of anecdotal evidence from people all over northern Japan. We just got an email last week from a woman, whose two sisters were pregnant, and one child was born deformed and the other died in the womb. And they’re pregnant during the accident and they could tell a metallic taste on their tongues and all that kind of stuff so I just am concerned that the Japanese government isn’t properly counting for that. […]
At 14:30 in
Gundersen: Your symposium* is just one more opportunity to let people know in Japan that the experience they’re feeling — the metallic taste on your tongue, the illnesses, the bloody noses, etc. — are not something that’s in your brain, and in fact these are real physiological issues that your government ‘s not addressing.
So I’m glad you’re doing it, the Japanese have to know that this is not a psychological issue, that these are real physiological issues based on real physiological exposures.
Forgotten Fukushima-Japan Two Years After the Daiichi AccidentDr. Caldicott details the impressive credentials of the international scientists who will be presenting their evidence at an important Scientific Symposium at the The New York Academy of Medicine in New York City.

PC Magazine and Enenews state 2 US nuke plants hit with Malware reminisent of Stuxnet…but the hotline knows nothing? DHS refuses to reveal plant names. While searching for the report on the NRC event page a number of other unusual items are found, including multiple seismic events.
Lest we not forget, none of this matters IF/WHEN something happens to reactor 4. We remind everyone that in 22 months nothing has changed, despite numerous efforts calling for immediate intervention.

Debris set adrift by the 2011 Japanese tsunami has made its way to Hawaii, triggering concerns over the unknown effects of the radiation it may carry from the meltdown of the Fukushima reactor.
Debris has washed ashore the islands of Oahu and Kauai and the state’s Department of Health has been asked to test some of the incoming material for radiation levels. Refrigerator parts, oyster buoys, housing insulation, storage bins, soda bottles, toys, fishing nets, plastic trash cans and even Japanese net boats have all washed up on Hawaiian sands in the past few weeks, triggering serious environmental concerns over both water pollution and radiation exposure.
Long-term exposure to radiation can cause cancer, gene mutations, premature aging and in severe cases, death. The consequences of the influx of debris are unknown, causing local agencies to advocate precaution in picking up the Japanese debris.
After a Kona fisherman discovered a 24-foot Japanese net boat floating along the Hawaiian coast early this month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration began an investigation to trace where some of the items have come in from and possibly find its owners.
“On behalf of NOAA and the State of Hawaii, we ask that anyone who finds personal items, which may have come from the tsunami, to please report them to county, state and/or federal officials,” William J. Aila, Jr., Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) chairperson, told Hawaii 24/7 News.
Depending on an object’s weight, density and other physical characteristics, it can take months or years to travel from Japan to Hawaii, which explains why many of the same type of items are floating ashore at the same time. Although an estimated 70 percent of the tsunami debris sank offshore, millions of tons of wreckage are still adrift and slowly making landfall, reports LiveScience.
Aside from the unknown radiation risks, some of the debris is bringing invasive species to Hawaii, thereby threatening the island chain’s ecosystem and introducing the possibility of consuming contaminated seafood. The 24-foot boat found by the fisherman was covered in blue mussels, which are native to Japan and harmful to Hawaii’s marine life – especially the corals.
“If it does take hold, the concern is that they will just be able to populate at a fast rate and out compete some of our native species,” Jono Blodgett, the aquatic species program leader at DLNR, told the Honolulu Civil Beat. And even if Hawaiians attempt to kill the invasive mussels, their attempts might be fruitless.
“When species are stressed out and about to die, they might release their eggs or sperm,” he said. The fisherman who discovered the abandoned Japanese boat saw the mussels as an opportunity for a tasty meal, raising additional concerns about Hawaiian locals’ exposure to radiation found in seafood. Blodgett believes the boat likely drifted to sea before the Fukushima reactors had a meltdown, making the attached mussels safe to consume – but the possibility of contamination remains, especially if the creatures are found on some of the other debris.
Even though Hawaiian officials have minimized panic by assuring residents that radiation risks are low, their investigations and detection programs indicate that the concern is still there. The state of Hawaii purchased a $15,000 portable radiation detection device in September, while the Hawaii Department of Health has conducted quarterly shoreline surveillance since the tsunami hit in 2011. This monitoring has increased since the debris began to wash upon the Hawaiian shoreline.
But some of the debris is so small that it becomes quickly buried in the sand on the beach, making it impossible to clean up or even detect.
“Many places on the beach, it’s hard to differentiate the sand from the plastics on the surface,” Nicholas Mallos of the Ocean Conservancy group told LiveScience.
And as long as the radiation risks are unknown, Hawaii residents should avoid collecting floating refrigerator parts or consuming Japanese mussels they might find on washed up debris.

Radioactive materials in fish studied
A group of Japanese researchers are studying fish organs to estimate how long radioactive materials will remain in fish caught in waters off the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
The researchers belong to the National Research Institute of Fisheries Science in Yokohama, near Tokyo.
They collected organs called ear stones from 30 rock trout and black porgy caught off Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures since last August.
Fish ear stones grow in layers. The researchers say it is possible to pinpoint the approximate time when fish absorbed radioactive materials if the layer containing the elements is identified.
They say they want to determine if the substances are residue from the nuclear accident in March 2011.
The head of the institute’s Center for Fisheries Oceanography and Marine Ecosystem, Tomoo Watanabe, says radioactivity levels in fish are expected to decrease if they were caused by the accident.
High levels of radioactive materials continue to be detected in some fish caught off Fukushima Prefecture since the accident in March 2011.
Watanabe says his institute’s data could help to decide when full-scale fishing in the area can be resumed.
A Sushi chef actually bought a single Tuna fish caught of Amori Prefecture for a whopping 1.8 MILLION Dollars – WITHOUT TESTING FOR RADIATION! He hopes to sell it to as many people as Possible. WTF.
Radioactive Tuna in California from Japan’s Fukushima Nuclear Disaster (full video here)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfOylG-13fQ Important to note that this video was posted back on May 30, 2012. The Radioactivity in the Tuna had been detected MONTHS after the Nuclear accident as far as CALIFORNIA!
Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear joins Thom Hartmann. Now on to a story that – tragically – just won’t go away: The Fukushima Nuclear crisis. Radioactive fish are now swimming in U.S. waters. Scientists have – for the first time – discovered Bluefin tuna that were contaminated by the Fukushima nuclear crisis in Japan last year – swimming off the coast of California. Radioactive cesium ten times above the normal level was found in the fish – though health officials say the levels are too low to be considered a health threat. Then again – no amount of radiation is good for you. Meanwhile – back at the crippled nuclear plant – a bulge was detected in the walls of reactor four – increasing fears that the structure holding tens of thousands of highly radioactive spent fuel rods is not sound. Should the reactor four building give way – it could trigger a nuclear disaster even worse than Chernobyl.

Fish migrate, if you’re still eating seafood and/or feeding your children tuna (ahi) STOP! The mercury content alone was enough to force me to quit eating seafood all together several years ago, Fukushima related radiation has compounded the problem. It’s also unfortunate to note that radiation is not a new hazard, the worlds superpowers and other industrialized nations have been using the oceans as a toxic garbage dump for decades, possibly more than a century. I became alarmed n the mid-80s when a friend in the navy wrote home absolutely horrified that the military was dumping barrels of radioactive waste within 20 miles of the coastline. That violated regulations,apparently dumping the waste further-out was allowed. The fact that it was allowed ANYWHERE in the oceans is morally reprehensible, a crime against future generations. because radiation eats through containment barrels.

Exposure to radioactive material released into the environment have caused mutations in butterflies found in Japan, a study suggests.
Scientists found an increase in leg, antennae and wing shape mutations among butterflies collected following the 2011 Fukushima accident.
The link between the mutations and the radioactive material was shown by laboratory experiments, they report.
The work has been published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Two months after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident in March 2011, a team of Japanese researchers collected 144 adult pale grass blue (Zizeeria maha) butterflies from 10 locations in Japan, including the Fukushima area.
When the accident occurred, the adult butterflies would have been overwintering as larvae.
By comparing mutations found on the butterflies collected from the different sites, the team found that areas with greater amounts of radiation in the environment were home to butterflies with much smaller wings and irregularly developed eyes.
“It has been believed that insects are very resistant to radiation,” said lead researcher Joji Otaki from the University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa.
“In that sense, our results were unexpected,” he told BBC News.
Prof Otaki’s team then bred these butterflies within labs 1,750km (1,090 miles) away from the accident, where artificial radiation could hardly be detected.
It was by breeding these butterflies that they began noticing a suite of abnormalities that hadn’t been seen in the previous generation – that collected from Fukushima – such as malformed antennae, which the insects use to explore their environment and seek out mates.
Six months later, they again collected adults from the 10 sites and found that butterflies from the Fukushima area showed a mutation rate more than double that of those found sooner after the accident.
The team concluded that this higher rate of mutation came from eating contaminated food, but also from mutations of the parents’ genetic material that was passed on to the next generation, even though these mutations were not evident in the previous generations’ adult butterflies.
The team of researchers have been studying that particular species butterfly for more than 10 years.
They were considering using the species as an “environmental indicator” before the Fukushima accident, as previous work had shown it is very sensitive to environmental changes.
“We had reported the real-time field evolution of colour patterns of this butterfly in response to global warming before, and [because] this butterfly is found in artificial environments – such as gardens and public parks – this butterfly can monitor human environments,” Prof Otaki said.
But the findings from their new research show that the radionuclides released from the accident were still affecting the development of the animals, even after the residual radiation in the environment had decayed.
“This study is important and overwhelming in its implications for both the human and biological communities living in Fukushima,” explained University of South Carolina biologist Tim Mousseau, who studies the impacts of radiation on animals and plants in Chernobyl and Fukushima, but was not involved in this research.
“These observations of mutations and morphological abnormalities can only be explained as having resulted from exposure to radioactive contaminants,” Dr Mousseau told BBC News.
The findings from the Japanese team are consistent with previous studies that have indicated birds and butterflies are important tools to investigate the long-term impacts of radioactive contaminants in the environment.
Alarming levels of radioactivity at 36,000ft, frequent flyers or anyone else traveling by air need preventative measures to help flush, cleanse and protect the thyroid from contamination before and after flying. Germanium, silica, zeolite and boron supplements are highly beneficial, along with dead sea salt baths. Kelp has also been recommended, but now reports are surfacing indicating high levels of radiation detected in kelp harvested from contaminated ocean waters. Another way you can protect yourself is raising your vibratory frequency through advanced forms of meditation, in combination with herbal/nutritional support.

May 12, 2012
For the past few weeks, word of the extent of the Fukushima disaster is spreading like the radiation slick moving across the Pacific Ocean thanks to social media and a lot of newly concerned citizens.
Independent researchers who have been trying to warn people for over a year are finally being heard. Much of that can be attributed to citizen journalists, who have realized mainstream media dropped the ball on this a long time ago.
To understand the dynamics of information and how it has been controlled, you would have to look at companies like General Electric and Westinghouse, who not only build nuclear reactors, but own major news outlets and, of course, are buddy-buddy with the Obama Administration.
Or, I can just tell you about it, since I have spent countless hours researching these connections and interviewing people about it. More on that at a later date. It deserves a nice big page in itself, with room for lots of details.
Not only do we have citizen journalists and the alternative media on top of this, but citizen scientists as well.
Have you met your new Fukushima expert, who just might live right next door? These are people who have taught themselves everything they possibly could about nuclear physics, radiation, Geiger counters, atomic power, nuclear plants, the effects of radiation on health, and radiation mitigation.
These citizen scientists have studied bombs, fallout, and weather and wind patterns. They have been monitoring radiation levels across the country, with their own equipment they purchased out of pocket and learned how to use.
They have read anything and everything they can get their hands on. They know the difference between alpha, beta, and gamma radiation, and how to avoid it.
They know that besides cancer, radiation can do all kinds of things to you, like severely compromise your immune system, intelligence, and thyroid, or make you aggressive, confused, and fatigued.
You might bruise or bleed in weird places and feel sick more than usual. They have learned all this out of their own instincts of survival.
It’s amazing what you can do in a short period of time when your life depends on it. And the more that they learn, the greater their sense of urgency has become in bringing this info to the masses.
And what conclusion have these citizen journalists and citizen scientists reached throughout 14 months of study?
They have come to the inevitable conclusion that all of our lives changed on March 11, 2011, when Fukushima went out of control.
The glaring problem is that we that we weren’t told about what actually happened.
Take, for instance, the fact that there were 3 meltdowns almost right away, and that the radioactive isotopes that blew all over Japan, Hawaii, Alaska, Canada and North America came in extraordinarily high quantities.
Or how various agencies that taxpayers have funded, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), did not do their job which is to protect the environment, and us.
In fact the EPA turned off their monitors for about a month, for the first time in their history. These are expensive and delicate pieces of equipment the taxpayers had already bought and paid for, for just such an emergency.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) knew, but they hid the information. The Obama Administration knew, but sent Hillary Clinton over to Japan to shake hands with the Prime Minister and show support.
Obama came out with a statement to the American people, saying, “We do not believe harmful levels of radiation will reach our shores,” which we now know was a lie.
We had to figure all this out for ourselves, which was difficult because the information was purposely withheld from us.
Despite their best efforts, they can’t stop the truth from leaking out of Fukushima. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests have now proven this beyond a doubt.
Conspiracy theory is becoming conspiracy fact. And now we are going public with this information, and in a very big way.
Tons of water continues to get poured into the reactors and flow subsequently into the Pacific Ocean, every second of every day.
Radiation continues to steam itself out of the ground, and thus up into the air, which then blows over us (i.e. resident of the northern hemisphere).
Earthquakes still happen daily around Japan. In fact there were 7 or 8 of them just in the past few days near Fukushima.
The spent fuel still sits in its shaky nest at the top of reactor number 4. Nothing has been done to further reinforce the structure.
The good news (if you can really call it that) is that it hasn’t fallen yet. The United Nations and the United States are now in their most preliminary stages of addressing the complexity of problems there, in an attempt to see if they can help out.
But as you know, the wheels of bureaucracy turn very slowly. It took almost 14 months for them to start turning at all.
Besides the ongoing releases into the ocean and air and the precariousness of the pool, we have a debris field the size of Texas starting to hit the west coast and Alaska, which may or may not be radioactive.
Japan has been burning radioactive trash, and will continue to do so until at least 2014, and that blows over us as well.
We have a radioactive slick moving across the ocean, which by all estimates should have sunk to the bottom, but hasn’t. And we have sick and dying mammals, fish, and birds all over the world, which may or may not be related, but should still be an enormous concern, since many of them are being found in the Pacific.
That is part of the problem when you are faced with the world’s largest disaster. All of the models for how to deal with it can be thrown out the window.
All the assumptions about fallout and it working itself into the food chain have been wrong. It was much worse, and has happened much faster, than anyone expected, even for concerned citizens and independent researchers following this closely.
The government knew this would be the case from the early SPEEDI numbers, which were hand translated and delivered to the US government as they happened. But for the most part, Fukushima has exceeded everyone’s expectations.
New ideas, new techniques, and new engineering has to be invented and implemented. New observations have to be made, and they are, as can be seen by searching “mutations” on YouTube and watching some videos.
We have citizen journalists and citizen scientists who are desperately trying to come up with solutions, and are doing it for free, while our government and agencies created to “protect us” continue to collect their paycheck, roll their eyes, shove their hands in their pockets and hum a tune like they’re waiting for a taxi.
But out of crisis, comes opportunity. I’ll use 9/11 again as an example.
Why do people get a warm fuzzy feeling when we see people rushing to aid those in the midst of disaster? Because we humans are hard-wired to care for others, and long to be part of a community.
Out of disaster, there is camaraderie, sympathy, and empathy. There are important lessons to be learned.
There are whole new industries that could be created out of this crisis, putting people to work. Aquaponics. Decontamination. Mitigation. Food testing.
And since we didn’t seem to learn these lessons with Chernobyl, we need to learn them right now.
All nuclear power does is boil water and create steam, which turbines turn into electricity. But when something goes wrong, it has the ability to kill everything on the planet. That is where we are at now.
We need to adapt if we are to survive. And part of that adaptation means we need to eliminate the possibility of this ever happening again, starting with the 23 reactors the same style as Fukushima, in the United States, which is the Mark 1 Boiling Water Reactor, or BWR.
People in the industry jokingly refer to these as “double-decker beach-bombs,” for the reason that the spent fuel is located in pools at the top of the reactor buildings, and they are usually located at a water source for emergency cooling purposes for when the fecal matter hits the fan at one of these plants.
In fact, several nuclear engineers who designed these reactors quit in protest before they went into production. They realized they had made a mistake. They realized this design would be extremely dangerous. GE went ahead and built them anyway.
When is the world going to realize the mistake of embracing nuclear energy as a power source, in spite of its danger?
And how long do we continue to ignore the brilliant scientists that warned about this, like Oppenheimer and Einstein? Or is it already too late?
There are no energy problems, in comparison. If you want to cut down on your electricity usage, turn off your TV.
We have natural gas deposits that could power everything we need. We have the power of the sun, water, wind and earth in the form of geothermal energy.
Nuclear power is a sham, just like the oil industry, and we have been duped into believing we need it to survive.
It generates billions and billions of dollars for these corporations. GE (who has the most ironic motto, “We Bring Good Things to Life”) made 14 billion dollars last year, and paid no taxes.
In addition to producing electricity, nuclear reactors also generate 500 pounds of plutonium a year per reactor, as a byproduct of the fission process.
What happens to all that highly toxic plutonium? The government gets to collect this material to make bombs, so we can go utterly decimate other countries, now known as “spreading democracy” and poison their populations for future generations.
Let’s not forget depleted uranium, or DU, which is now used in many military applications with horrific results.
Check out videos of children in Fallujah for some recent examples of this.
This is the one big secret that the nuke industry and our government will do anything to protect: besides being a billion dollar industry, nuke plants are basically bomb-making factories right under our noses.
Drawing attention to Fukushima would have drawn attention to this function of nuclear facilities.
An added side effect is that they also make people sick and help boost the health care industry, which in some states is now the number one private sector employer.
The plutonium and fission byproducts these plants produce help support our government’s number-one priority: the almighty military-industrial complex.
And it’s all in the name of money, power, and control. Energy companies hire top level advertisers and public relations people to promote and manipulate public opinion. Even during the Superbowl, ads were run showing how steam from nuclear power runs the turbines that make beer.
They want you to believe that we are dependent on this source of energy for our quality of life. The truth of the matter, on the other hand, is that nuclear power has ruined our lives.
Ask anyone who used to live in the ever-expanding evacuation zone in Japan, which may soon include the 35 million people in Tokyo.
Ask anyone who lives near a nuke plant and has a child with autism, gastroenteritis, or cancer. Just take a look at the statistics of cancer in the general population since we started embracing this technology.
The truth is: we have been nuked and are still getting nuked, every day, in a very big way.
I used to be a huge supporter of nuclear power, but 14 months of intensive study has changed my opinion significantly.
In addition to my studies, I have been influenced by some major health issues I developed after being outside the first 3 weeks after the reactors exploded. During that time I had a metallic-taste in my mouth, which I found out later was from tasting fission products. More on that later as well.
Nuclear cheerleaders like to complicate things in an attempt to make radiation something much harder to understand. That way it turns people off from the subject and they won’t pay attention as much.
The truth is, you don’t need to be a physicist, a scientist, or an expert in this field. You don’t need to know the differences between decay rates and half-lives, or cesium and strontium.
You only need to understand one thing: All radiation is bad, and all of it will make you sick, no matter how much Ann Coulter claims that the Japanese should be thankful for Fukushima.
The more you are exposed to it, the sicker you will be. The more places you can cut down on your exposure, the better off your health will be.
Radiation is cumulative. It builds up in the body. It destroys cells. It causes mutations in cell growth which can thus create cancer or other illnesses.
There is plenty of this radiation leaking out of Fukushima for over a year now, blowing around in our air, building up in our soil, and contaminating our water supply.
What’s worse, we have 104 of these plants in the United States, with special emphasis on the 23 previously mentioned, where this exact scenario is waiting to happen.
Radioactive steam comes out of these plants all the time, since as part of their normal operations. They vent to the atmosphere to keep things cool. Do some research into “rainshadow” in autism and brain cancer in children, and look where the numbers are the highest: around nuclear plants.
We can’t afford to wait or delay. If you aren’t already mitigating, you need to start now. You need to treat your health, and the health of your family, like you all have cancer already. That might sound like fear mongering to some, but this is one case where “better safe than sorry” truly applies.
This process involves eating healthy whole foods, filtering water, avoiding precipitation, taking supplements, and getting lots of sleep.
Stop eating fast food, and eat lower on the food chain, where bio-accumulation is less. Stop eating seafood, unless you know it is safe.
Include your children in these changes, because we will be dealing with this problem for at least the rest of our lives, and so will they.
We have to change our perspective. Quality of life becomes a much more important issue when your life expectancy has been shortened.
We have Fukushima to thank for this, and the nuclear industry, of course. As well as the various other individuals or agencies that tried to keep this information from us.
And then of course we have spent fuel pool doom lurking in the shadows. And for some unknown reason, Tepco seems to think their most immediate concern is building a huge underground wall, to contain something going on under the plant, the extent of which hasn’t yet been shared with us.
So what do they know that we don’t? Why is there a sense of urgency to contain something underground, when the spent fuel pool #4 is supposedly the weakest link in the Fukushima chain?
Where is all this technology we have to look for gas and oil, like ground-penetrating radar, optical coherence tomography, or even HAARP, to see what’s going on under the plants? What else is being hidden from us?
Instead of calling it game over, let’s play a new game called “No More Fukushimas.”
Let’s figure out ways to clean up this mess and not make more of them in the future. We can leave this for our children to deal with, that is if they are still here.
Or it is up to you, it is up to me, it is up to all of us to fix this situation, right now, as best as we possibly can.
Take care of your family first, have a plan for the worst-case scenario, then do what you can to help others.
Our lives all changed over a year ago, only you weren’t told about it. As bad as things are, there is a huge opportunity here for something wonderful to come out of this mess. A cleaner, brighter, healthier future for our children and generations to come. A future, period.
As a close associate of Obama once said, “Never let a crisis go to waste”. This might be the last crisis that we ever see, if we don’t so something about it.

The problems at reactor 4 are the greatest short-term threat to humanity and has the potential to destroy our world and TEPCO doesn’t have the money to fix them.
The problem at Fukushima nuclear reactor 4 which is being dubbed as the greatest short-term threat to humanity and has the potential to destroy our world and civilization as we know it.
Now nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen who is one of the only people providing objective scientific analysis about the Fukushima nuclear fallout believes based on his analysis of the problems that TEPCO simply doesn’t have enough money to deal with the issues there.
He says this at about 25:00 minutes into a recent program on WBAI’s Five O’Clock Shadow.
Title: Arnie Gundersen Interview
Source: WBAI’s Five O’Clock Shadow
Date: Tuesday April 17, 2012 5:00pm
At ~25:00 in
Host: What about the humpty-dumpty tank in Unit No. 4?
Gundersen: I don’t think Tepco has enough money to tackle the problems that it’s facing.
- Donate to Five O’Clock Shadow and WBAI here (be sure to pick 5 o’clock Shadow as your show of choice)
- Donate to Fairewinds here
To put it simply, the nuclear fuel rods in reactor 4 are sitting inside of a pool of water that is preventing them from melting down completely and release massive amounts of radiation far beyond what already has been released.
The structural integrity of the building has been damaged so greatly that it appears that the reactor 4 building is leaning and officials around the world, including US senators, are warning even a minor earthquake could make it collapse.
If the water leaks out of the pool or the reactors come into open contact with the air there will be devastating consequences for all of humanity.
Besides Gundersen’s assertion that TEPCO doesn’t have enough money to deal with the problem, there have also been reports in the Japanese media that TEPCO isn’t dealing with the situation as they should because the cost would hurt their stock price.
Of course that could change with the recent speculation that TEPCO will be nationalized by the government of Japan but know one knows if nationalization will actually happen or the government is just allowing the cost of the disaster to be placed on the backs of taxpayers.
Furthermore no one knows the true extent of the disaster as a former Fukushima worker has just turned whisteblower and reported TEPCO has been falsifying their reports.
At 0:48 in
NARRATOR: Kimura used to operate the reactors and maintained the fuel rods at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. He confessed that TEPCO has deceived the government, which regulates the nuclear power plants, in a number of ways.
KIMURA: As a part of operational management of the nuclear power plant, we used to rewrite the daily operative reports. We used to access the computer to falsify the data when things weren’t going our way.
TEPCO is no alone with in their cover up as the government of Japan is current experiencing infighting in regard to revelation after revelation over the last year of a cover up by government officials.
Documents obtained from the US government through FOIA requests, being dubbed Plume-Gate by the alternative media, reveal the US has colluded in the cover up of the disaster as well.
About this video
While traveling in Japan several weeks ago, Fairewinds’ Arnie Gundersen took soil samples in Tokyo public parks, playgrounds, and rooftop gardens. All the samples would be considered nuclear waste if found here in the US. This level of contamination is currently being discovered throughout Japan. At the US NRC Regulatory Information Conference in Washington, DC March 13 to March 15, the NRC’s Chairman, Dr. Gregory Jaczko emphasized his concern that the NRC and the nuclear industry presently do not consider the costs of mass evacuations and radioactive contamination in their cost benefit analysis used to license nuclear power plants. Furthermore, Fairewinds believes that evacuation costs near a US nuclear plant could easily exceed one trillion dollars and contaminated land would be uninhabitable for generations.

update 950pm CST 2/13/2012 –
convert CPM to uS/v or mS/v here: http://www.blackcatsystems.com/GM/converting_CPM_mRhr.html
“For those who prefer to use Sieverts, 108 CPM is about 1 uSv/hr for C060, and for Cs137 it is around 120 CPM per 1 uSv/hr. “
This means my test @ 110CPM = 1 uS/v per hour. Which means 24 uS/v per day ….
24 uS/v per day X 365 days in a year = 8,760 uS/v per year !!! That is roughly 8.5 mS/v per year — which equals about spending over an hour at chernobyl !! (that is per the PBS site below). We are coming up on one year from Fukushima — if these levels continue it means we ALL spent over an hour at chernobyl if the levels carry on for a full year !!!!!
thats the rough math — this is NOT good news.
how much radiation is too much? here is a chart to see:
I have done subsequent measurements OUTSIDE in the snow directly — 73.8 CPM over 10 Minutes.. and another test at approx. 62CPM.
In total.. three tests.. 110CPM, 62CPM, and 74CPM. These are HIGH levels..
100CPM is alert level.. so the first count actually falls under “ALERT level”.. second two readings fall in the “HIGH” category.
Past baseline measurements in the same spot were an average of 20-30CPM.
I am now (500pm CST) collecting snow for several hours — will melt the snow — and take tests — also will EVAPORATE the snow and take readings on the residue.
Again.. a straight test returns a VERY high reading @ 110CPM — these are just the preliminary tests — I cannot leave the equipment outside in the snow for 10 minutes — thus we must collect the sample and do extended testing.
I will be using all three geiger counters on the full tests — once I have enough direct snowfall in the collection glass. Coming ASAP ! Tonight into tomorrow AM (2/14) — each test takes 10 min + video processing and upload time. Will do three tests at least, links to monitor radiation are below:
Keep in mind.. this is ALL ON TOP of the Fukushima disaster in March 2011 — which blew an EXTRAORDINARY AMOUNT of radioactive debris into the air.

Today, we drove into the mouth of the beast — Location : 1/4 mile south of the Byron Illinois Nuclear power plant. We passed within a few hundred feet of the structures. Got some GREAT shots of the steam venting near the reactor buildngs.
This nuclear plant ‘vented’ clouds of steam laced with tritium this past week — the clouds were blown by prevailing winds over downtown Chicago, IL. Thus the reason for this measurement taking trip. Todays levels near the plant directly are below the alert level of 100CPM — but a full 20CPM above downtown Chicago (those tests will be uploaded later tonight).
Todays measurements averaged between 45cpm and 48cpm. Several more to still be processed and uploaded.. most averaging in the 50CPM range..
Many thanks to internatonal medcom for the 2nd Inspector Alert geiger counter. Here is a link to their site (they are the manufacturer of the Inspector Alert geiger ) http://medcom.com/
These ‘mid level’ readings — half way to the alert level of 100CPM— leads me to believe that the tritium is dissipating as expected — however some elevated amounts still remain.
