FUKUSHIMA RADIATION FOR 100,000 YEARS: SARCOPHAGUS COVER POINTLESS

PLEASE WATCH THE SHORT VIDEO BELOW AND HEAR WHAT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN JAPAN HAD THE COURAGE TO STAND UP AND TELL THEIR GOVERNMENT BACK IN 2013, THE FARMERS, THE PEOPLE BEING FORCED BACK ONTO RADIOACTIVE LAND AND BACK INTO RADIOACTIVE VILLAGES, PEOPLE TRYING TO LIVE WITH THE AFTERMATH OF PERHAPS THE DEADLIEST DISASTER WE'VE KNOWN..  
https://youtu.be/dfaPhmFGvt8

THE VIDEO IS SUBTITLED, BUT THEIR EMOTIONS CROSS LANGUAGE BARRIERS.
THEY ASK GOOD, VALID QUESTIONS AND GET...NO ANSWERS. 
DID WE AMERICANS SEE THIS IN ANY OF OUR MAINSTREAM MEDIA?
HOW MANY AMERICANS ARE UNAWARE OF THIS?





THE MAP BELOW IS FROM 2011, BUT IF ANYTHING HAS REALLY CHANGED, IT IS THAT NOW WE KNOW THAT A SARCOPHAGUS WILL NOT WORK FOR THE FUKUSHIMA PLANT AS IT DID FOR CHERNOBYL, AND THE JAPANESE OWNERS AND GOVERNMENT AXED THAT IDEA ANYWAY.

DO READ AT THE WEBSITE AT THAT LAST LINK.
SOME OF THEIR REASONS ARE CHILLING.

"
The governor commented building a sacrophagus in Fukushima is “unacceptable”. Fukushima prefecture would have to give up returning the residents and it would also affect the harmful rumor."

"HARMFUL RUMOR?"
IT'S NO RUMOR, IT'S RADIATION!

THEY'D HAVE TO GIVE UP ON SENDING THOUSANDS BACK INTO THAT CONTAMINATED HELL-HOLE.?
BUT NOT ONE TEPCO OFFICIAL OR NATIONAL POLITICIAN WILL GO LIVE ANYWHERE NEAR THERE!

ABE AND TEPCO JUST DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO CONTINUE "SUBSIDIZING"ALL WHO HAVE BEEN DISPLACED.
IT'S CHEAPER AND MORE CONVENIENT TO SEND THEM BACK, LET THEM DEAL WITH IT.

THE PARTNERS IN CRIME TELL US IT WILL BE AT LEAST 40 YEARS BEFORE THEY CAN HOPE TO EVEN BEGIN THAT MASSIVE CLEANUP AND FINAL SHUTDOWN OF THIS MONSTROSITY.

FUKUSHIMA LEAKS MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF RADIOACTIVE WATER DAILY. THE NUCLEAR WASTE THAT THE CRIPPLED PLANT PUTS OUT EACH MONTH IS MIND-BOGGLING.  

NO, PEOPLE OF EARTH FUKUSHIMA WILL BE WITH US FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, AND WITH OUR GRANDCHILDREN'S GRANDCHILDREN, AND WITH THEIRS.


"Radioactivity in the sea around the plant are not falling as expected. The run-off from rivers, as well as continuing leaks from the plant may be to blame and contaminated sediment and marine organisms could also be involved."

EVER SO SLOWLY, THE TRUTH FINDS A WAY TO COME OUT AND WE MAY BE SEEING THE DAWN OF TRUTH REGARDING THE 2011 DISASTER AT JAPAN'S FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR POWER PLANT.
IT IS, HOWEVER, MERELY THE DAWN.  

THE TITLE OF THIS BLOG ENTRY STATES "FUKUSHIMA RADIATION FOR 100,000 YEARS", BUT WHAT FEW SEEM TO BE AWARE OF IS THAT EVERY REACTOR ON PLANET EARTH WILL PRODUCE NUCLEAR WASTES THAT MUST BE BURIED, MONITORED, FOR AT LEAST 100,000 YEARS.

OUR "PROTECTION AGENCIES", OUR "REGULATORY COMMISSIONS" AND OUR MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND THEIR HIRED "EXPERTS" ALWAYS SEEM TO NEGLECT THAT BIT OF FACTUAL INFORMATION.

NUCLEAR FISSION CREATES ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE, YEAR AFTER YEAR, DECADE AFTER DECADE, MILLENNIUM AFTER MILLENNIUM.

IT IS NEVER "SAFE", IT IS NEVER 100% "CONTAINED", IT LEAKS, AND IT WILL KILL LIFE FORMS, ALL OF THEM, THAT COME IN CONTACT WITH IT...IF NOT IMMEDIATELY, THEN OVER TIME, BECAUSE IT NEVER STOPS, IN ANY HUMAN'S LIFE SPAN, BEING RADIATION.
J. ROBERT OPPENHEIMER, PERHAPS THE MOST WELL KNOWN OF THE SCIENTISTS WHO GAVE US THE BOMB, WHO WORKED SO HARD ON THAT MANHATTAN PROJECT, SAID IT BEST, AND SAID IT HONESTLY, WHEN HE FACED THE CAMERA, MISTY-EYED, AND APOLOGETICALLY TOLD THE TV AUDIENCE, "I AM BECOME DEATH....".
AT LEAST, AND AT LAST, HE WAS HONEST....BRIEFLY OR NOT.


AS ONE OF JAPAN'S LEADING NEWS MEDIA, ASAHI SHIMBUN,  WROTE,
"THERE IS NO END TO FUKUSHIMA CRISIS WHILE MELTED FUEL REMAINS."

TRUTH...HOWEVER SAD IT MAY BE, MUST BE TOLD.
AT THE OTHER END OF THE SPECTRUM, FOR A REAL 'STUDY' IN SCIENTIFIC PROPAGANDA-BABBLE AND DOUBLE-SPEAK, FEW SITES CAN MATCH   <
THIS ONE>.

IT OFFERS AN ARTICLE FROM 2011 THAT STATES "MOST OF THE FUKUSHIMA RADIATION FELL INTO THE SEA" (LOOK OUT MARINE LIFE!) AND THEN THE "REVELATION" IN JUNE, 2016 THAT, NO, HOLD ON, MOST FELL ON LAND  IN "GLASS MICROPARTICLES THAT ARE WATER INSOLUBLE".


The airborne Cs nanoparticles were condensed along with the Fe-Zn nanoparticles and the gas from the molten concrete, to form the SiO2 glass nanoparticles, which were then dispersed.
Analysis from several air filters collected in Tokyo on 15 March 2011 showed that 89% of the total radioactivity was present as a result of these caesium-rich microparticles, rather than the soluble Cs, as had originally been supposed.

According to Dr Satoshi Utsunomiya: "This work changes some of our assumptions about the Fukushima fallout. It looks like the clean-up procedure, which consisted of washing and removal of top soils, was the correct thing to do.
However, the concentration of radioactive caesium in microparticles means that, at an extremely localised and focused level, the radioactive fallout may have been more (or less) concentrated than anticipated. This may mean that our ideas of the health implications should be modified"."

HANG ON RIGHT THERE!
WE WERE JUST TOLD THAT THESE MICROPARTICLES ARE NOT WATER SOLUBLE, BUT WASHING THINGS OFF HELPED?
HOW?

NO!
IT WASHED THEM SOMEWHERE ELSE, MAYBE, BUT IT DID NOT WASH THEM OUT OF EXISTENCE.
THIS IS THE SAME ABE/TEPCO GAME OF "MOVE THE NUCLEAR RADIATION AROUND SO EVERYONE THINKS IT'S GONE"!


BACK IN 2012, THE IMPECCABLE MICHAEL COLLINS OFFERED AN ARTICLE ABOUT A SIMILAR ODDITY....THE URANIUM "BUCKYBALLS".
THIS DISPELLED THE STANDARDIZED MYTH THAT ALL THAT LEAKING RADIATION INTO OUR PACIFIC OCEAN WOULD JUST BE "DILUTED" AND WE'D ALL BE JUST FINE.

OLD KENNY BUESSELER OF WOODS HOLE, DESIGNATED CALMER OF THE SHEEPFOLD, IN ONE OF HIS FAIRY TALES FOR THE AMERICAN PUBLIC, EVEN SAID HE'D SWIM IN THAT OCEAN.

I'D LIKE TO SEE THAT!

COLLINS KNOWS BETTER.


FROM ENVIROREPORTER, JULY 5, 2012:
"According to a recent UC Davis study, these uranium-filled nanospheres were created from the millions of tons of fresh and salt water used to try to cool down three molten cores of the stricken reactors at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The tiny and tough buckyballs are shaped like soccer balls.

Water hitting the incredibly hot and radioactive, primarily uranium-oxide fuel turns it into peroxide. In this goo mix, buckyballs are formed, loaded with uranium and able to move quickly through water without disintegrating."

AND AS COLLINS SAID AT THE END OF THAT INCREDIBLE ARTICLE, "We are on our own in this Fukushima nightmare.

In April of 2013, the "situation" attracted the attention of the International Atomic Energy Agency, which sent a team of experts to review the decommissioning effort. They warned "Japan may need longer than the projected 40 years to clean up the site".

IT ONLY TOOK TWO YEARS FOR THE BOYS AT IAEA TO RUN IN THERE, LOOK AROUND FOR A VERY BRIEF TIME, THEN TELL US IT'LL TAKE LONGER TO CLEAN UP?
JUST LIKE OUR NUCLEAR REGULATORY BOYS, THE IAEA WORKS FOR THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY, NOT US.

BUT JAPAN CAN'T CLEAN UP THE SITE AND THEY HAVE ADMITTED THAT THE TECHNOLOGY TO DO SO MAY TAKE 40 TO OVER 100 YEARS TO DEVELOP, IMPLEMENT AND COMPLETE.

AND EVERY DAY THAT PLUME SPREADS AND THE WASTEWATER POISONS THE PACIFIC.

The contamination is found in the food chain, both in the sea and on land. HUMANS are at the top of that food chain.
What we consume that has been affected by Fukushima radiation affects us.
The more of it we eat, unknowingly, the more we're affected.

What blew sky-high in those explosions and was sent into the atmosphere by indiscriminate CHEAP burning of waste and "normal venting", plus a LOT of ABNORMAL, roof-off "venting", leaks into the air above those reactors, cannot be measured.

TEPCO, et al over there, those in charge of "monitoring radiation levels", have been caught in so many LIES no one can keep count of them.

Every week we've learned about coverups, about "misreadings", about "mistakes", about failures at every turn.

Who do we trust...those who CARE about the health of all of us, about the health of millions of Japanese citizens being endangered by all these lies and half-truths, or the Abe government and TEPCO people who have demonstrated their disregard for human lives and have repeatedly chosen what's best for the Japanese ECONOMY, PROFIT OVER HUMAN LIVES?
FISH IS A STAPLE FOOD FOR MANY, BOTH IN JAPAN AND GLOBALLY.
MANY OF THOSE FISH ARE MIGRATORY AND HAVE A FAR RANGE.
WHICH FOOD FISH SWIM IN THE WORST RADIOACTIVE WATERS AND THEN ARE CAUGHT HUNDREDS, EVEN THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY BY FISHERMEN?

Bottom-dwelling fish in the Fukushima area STILL show radioactivity above the limit of 100 becquerels per kg set by the Japanese government.

Greenlings have been found with levels as high as 25,000 bq per kg.

WHAT ABOUT THE TUNA, SALMON, SHELLFISH, KELP OFF THE WEST COAST THAT HAVE SHOWN CESIUM-134,RADIATION, RADIATION SPECIFIC TO THE DAI'ICH PLANT?

TUNA AND SALMON  AREN'T "BOTTOM-DWELLING...BUT THEY ARE MIGRATORY...AS IN FROM NEAR JAPAN TO OUR PACIFIC COAST.

IT'S THE SAME FOR FOOD CROPS GROWN IN ANY CONTAMINATED SOIL.

ABOUT THAT "CLEANED" SOIL, WELL, WHAT HAPPENS WHEN RAINS COME AND WASH ALL THAT RADIATION FROM "UNCLEANED" HILLSIDES BACK DOWN ONTO FARMLANDS?


THE JAPANESE FARMERS KNOW.
IN THE VIDEO LINKED AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS POST, THEY SAY THEY WON'T EAT THEIR OWN FOOD CROPS, THAT THEY FEEL GUILTY SELLING IT OUTSIDE THEIR LANDS, KNOWING THE TRUTH, THAT IT IS CONTAMINATED, BUT THEY SAY, "WE HAVE TO MAKE A LIVING".

I'M NOT THEM, SO I CAN'T SAY WHAT I WOULD DO IN THEIR SHOES, BUT, FOR ME, NO, NO, I COULD NOT SELL THAT TAINTED FOOD, NOR SELL TAINTED FISH.

THINKING ABOUT CHILDREN EATING THAT WOULD NEVER ALLOW ME TO DO SO.
I DO RESPECT THEM FOR SPEAKING OUT, HOWEVER.

WHAT ABOUT AMERICAN FARMERS, RANCHERS, FISHERMEN?  
They don't have to monitor, don't have to report radiation. 
After all, the FDA, EPA, NRC and our Congress tells us everything is just fine, rosy, wonderful.

LIARS.


Milk from California to Wisconsin as well as drinking water sources have all shown signs of Fukushima radiation, as have some areas of food crops, rain run-off from roofs, roadside water in puddles, rain that fell at NASA's Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.
ONCE UPON A TIME, institutions like Berkeley and other universities with monitoring equipment reported these high readings.

While NASA reported the polonium, americium, Iodine-131, xenon, krypton, etc, found at their facility, I challenge you to find even three mainstream media who passed that on to the American public.

Local news teams were out in force with Geiger counters making readings, reporting to us, ONCE UPON A TIME.

Then...a sudden silence...
Monitoring equipment was pulled, turned off, reported as "broken", and our press fell quiet on the topic of Fukushima.

From coast-to-coast and border-to-border on BOTH sides of the Pacific people have reported higher numbers of mutations in just about everything these past 5+ years.
THAT hasn't made mainstream news either, has it?

IN JAPAN, EXPECTANT MOTHERS WHO DID NOT ELECT, AS MANY DID, TO ABORT THEIR PREGNANCIES ARE SEEING ALARMINGLY HIGH NUMBERS OF BIRTH DEFECTS, STILLBIRTHS, THYROID NODULES, OTHER TROUBLING SYMPTOMS WHICH WOULD TERRIFY ANY MOTHER TO DISCOVER IN A CHILD.

AS MANY PHYSICIANS HAVE NOW COME FORWARD AND SAID, THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT TOLD THEM TO NEVER SAY SUCH THINGS WERE THE RESULT OF RADIATION. 

THE ABE REGIME EVEN TRIED TO FORCE A GAG ORDER ON THE MEDIA THERE, THREATENED TO JAIL THOSE WHO SPOKE OUT ABOUT HOW BAD IT IS THERE.

THE TEA ROOM HAS DONE MANY ARTICLES ON THIS, WITH VIDEO AND WRITTEN PROOF OF ALL I MENTION NOW.

[NOTE HERE TO WORDPRESS READERS. THE WORDPRESS SITE IS A 'MIRROR' TO MY MUCH OLDER MAIN SITE, ALSO KNOWN AS THE HEMLOCK TEA ROOM, WHICH CAN BE FOUND AT http://havacuppahemlock1.blogspot.com/.]

HERE, IN AMERICA, pediatricians initially sounded the alarm less than 4 weeks after the disaster happened, warned parents of newborns who were hit with that first radioactive plume that their babies should have thyroid screenings because of the radiation spikes they were subjected to in utero.


And then it all just went silent.


The initial warnings and cautions and heavy monitoring and reporting those high levels and all those news media headlines just faded away.
People were told, soon after the silence, that there was really nothing to be concerned about.

That was when everyone thought the Fukushima mess could be cleaned up quickly.


Now we know...they can't even BEGIN to fix it, the technology does not exist, and won't for at least 40 years, but now they're saying closer to 100 years.

And much that is leaking from Fukushima will continue to be present in our air, seas and lands for 100,000 to millions of years.

Those are the "half-lives" of some of the more deadly radioisotopes emitted from Dai'ichi.

THAT'S HOW LONG THE CURRENT RADIATION WILL BE WITH US ALL, EVEN IF WE STOPPED THE LEAKS TODAY, BUT WE CAN'T.
WE CAN'T AND JAPAN WON'T.


It's not "okay", nor is it going to be taken care of even as well as Chernobyl was, which is also still leaking, though by NO means as much as that cursed Dai'ichi plant.

We can't forget Fukushima, or the people of Japan, the people of America, the people anywhere and everywhere who are DAILY being 'touched' by this uncontrolled catastrophe, this ongoing insane nightmare.




More than thirty million tons of contaminated soil are stacked in open-air sites in plastic bags, unguarded, unmonitored, leaking...even in school yards...even beside streams and rivers that provide water to communities, that are used for irrigation, for livestock, that are home to fish consumed by human beings.
The radiation didn't disappear, nor, as we now know, was it "diluted" by the vast Pacific as we were TOLD it would be.

It's with us every day in increasing amounts because of those 3 gaping reactor buildings and a Japanese government that allows open-air burning of radioactive waste being picked up by thousands of workers there.


AS ONE OF THE MEN IN THE VIDEO STATED, THEY CAN'T DECONTAMINATE THE FORESTS, STREAMS, ROCKS, WELLS, OR THEMSELVES.


NEITHER CAN WE.


Shinzo Abe is also okay with "recycling" radioactive soil, the soil once placed in those silly plastic bags that never really "contained" even a wee bit of the radiation in its contents.

Will that soil be used to grow food in, be used in any building project, spread on any lawns, played on by children?

Abe and his minions don't care, they just want it GONE so those coming to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics don't see the ugly high stacks of radioactive soil sitting everywhere, unmonitored.

All metals that were hit hard or "mildly" by radiation is now treated as any other metal, reused, recycled, distributed throughout the world, just like Japanese foods, teas, everything, no matter what part of Japan they come from. 

Other nations still have a BAN on such, but NOT AMERICA!


AT THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE, A PHOTO SHOWS HOW HIGH RADIATION STILL IS THERE TODAYt.
356 microsieverts / hr radiation level, Feb. 9, 2016 at Reactor #3

THE IDIOTIC PLAN OF AN ICE WALL TO BLOCK FLOW INTO THE PACIFIC IS MAKING MATTERS WORSE AND HAS FAILED.
WELLS NEARBY ARE CONTAMINATED.
THEY CAN'T STOP IT.

A panel of experts that is advising Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) has declared the effort to construct a frozen wall of earth around the four reactors to stop additional ground water leaking into the site to be a FAILURE, ANOTHER FAILURE.
IT WAS A COSTLY (34.5 billion yen (307 million euros), STUPID, TIME-WASTING MISTAKE, AS EXPERTS WARNED BEFORE CONSTRUCTION BEGAN.
THE ABE REGIME WANTS THE WORLD TO BELIEVE JAPAN IS DOING "SOMETHING" WHEN JAPAN IS DOING NOTHING TO STOP THE RADIATION FROM POISONING THE PACIFIC OCEAN, THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE PLANET.
ABE IS STILL PUTTING HOLDING THE 2020 OLYMPICS ABOVE THE WELFARE OF THE JAPANESE CITIZENS, AND THEY'RE ONTO HIM!
TWO FORMER JAPANESE PRIME MINISTERS HAVE CALLED HIM OUT ON LYING TO THE WORLD.

THE CITIZENS THERE ALSO KNOW THE FUTILITY OF THIS INSANE "ICE WALL".

"The plan to block ground water with a frozen wall of earth is failing," Yoshinori Kitsuaka, a professor of engineering at Tokyo Metropolitan University and a member of the panel, said in a report. "They need to come up with another solution."


IT WOULD TAKE REMOVING ALL THE FUEL RODS FROM THE REACTORS TO STOP THE NEED FOR HUNDREDS OF TONS OF COOLING WATER PER DAY FOR THE 3 REACTORS.

BUT THE RADIATION LEVELS ARE TOO HIGH FOR WORKERS OR ROBOTS TO DO THAT, AND AS LONG AS THE FUEL RODS ARE THERE, THE RADIATION WILL REMAIN TOO HIGH TO REMOVE THE RODS OR EVEN ATTEMPT TO BUILD A SARCOPHAGUS OVER THE PLACE, WHICH, AS WE WILL SEE, IS ANOTHER FUTILE POSSIBILITY.

IT'S A VICIOUS, UNENDING CYCLE.


IT'S BEEN ALMOST 6 YEARS NOW, BUT TEPCO ADMITS IT IS NO CLOSER TO A SOLUTION:

"We anticipate that it will take 30 to 40 years to reach that point as we are trying to do all the clean-up work at the same time as developing the technology to remove the fuel debris," a Tepco official said, YESTERDAY.

"YESTERDAY", BEFORE THE NEW TYPHOON HIT THE ISLAND NEAR FUKUSHIMA....
YESTERDAY, BEFORE YET OTHER EARTHQUAKES RATTLED THE CRUMBLING BUILDINGS AND STORAGE TANKS THERE....
YESTERDAY, AS THE EMPTY PROMISE OF THAT LUDICROUS "ICE WALL" STOPPING THE LEAKS INTO THE PACIFIC WAS SPOTLIGHTED.

YESTERDAY, TODAY, TOMORROW, NOTHING CHANGED FOR THE BETTER THERE!


Aileen Mioko-Smith, with Kyoto-based Green Action Japan, told Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany's international broadcaster, "They are running out of space at the site to put these tanks, the water that is being generated on a daily basis means they have to keep constructing more, and the ones that are not welded have a history of leaking."

'Ticking time bomb'
"The situation with contaminated water at the site is a ticking time bomb and they don't seem to know what they can do - other than to construct more tanks," she said.

Environmental groups are calling for TEPCO and Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA), which oversees the industry here, to come up with a clear plan of action so that they do not simply run out of space and believe there is no option but to release contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean.

[THEY ARE ALREADY DOING THAT!]

TEPCO ADMITS THAT THE LEAKS ARE ENORMOUS AND ONGOING:

TEPCO confirmed earlier this month that an estimated 10,000 tons of radioactive water had collected in underground trenches around the buildings that house reactors one, two, three and four.

That was in addition to about 60,000 tons of water that had flooded the basement of the reactor and turbine buildings, according to an official at TEPCO.

"It is accumulating because around 100 tons of water are injected every day in order to keep the reactors in units one, two and three cool," the official told DW.

"But we are also seeing about 150 tons of ground water seeping into those same areas each day."

AND IT IS ALL EXTREMELY HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE....SO MUCH SO THAT EVEN ROBOTS CAN'T SURVIVE BUT A SHORT TIME IN THAT AREA.
THE "MINISTRY" IS FINALLY HAVING TO ADMIT THAT THE RADIATION HAS CAUSED DEATHS AND CANCERS, BUT THEY TRY TO COERCE THE RESIDENTS INTO GOING BACK INTO KNOWN HIGH-RADIATION TOWNS?
WHY?


On August 20, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare confirmed that it would provide compensation to a man who developed leukemia after taking part in emergency decontamination efforts at Fukushima immediately after the disaster struck.
The ministry recognized that the man, who is in his 50s but who has not been named, developed cancer due to exposure to radiation at the site, where he worked between April 2011 and January 2015.

The ministry is considering the cases of five additional workers who have applied for compensation to cover their health costs, while a former worker at the site was granted financial assistance in October of last year after contracting leukemia.

BUT THEY HAVE DENIED COMPENSATION TO THOUSANDS, HAVE REFUSED TO HEAR CASES BROUGHT BY HUNDREDS.


Yet at the same time, the national government is effectively forcing people who were evacuated from their homes close to the plant to return, saying that radioactivity levels are within permissible limits and that housing subsidies and other payments that they have been receiving while unable to work will be terminated.

"Many of these people - especially those with children - do not want to go back to areas that they have been told are safe," said Mioko-Smith, adding that there was a lack of trust in the government's promises.


"They feel that everything is being driven by the upcoming Olympic Games and that the government has to live up to its promise to the world that everything will be back to normal by 2020 and the Tokyo Games," she said."
BINGO! NAIL ON THE HEAD!

SOME NEWS MEDIA, EVEN IN JAPAN, ARE CALLING ABE AND TEPCO WHAT THEY
ARE....LIARS...BUT HARDLY A ONE IN THE U.S. DARES TO.


"4 biggest lies about the Fukushima disaster"


MARCH 12, 2016

"If hindsight is 20/20, we have a clear picture of the lies told throughout the Fukushima disaster.

Five years on, we now know which assurances from authorities turned out to be dangerously false.

LIE #1: No radiation casualties

It took more than four years for the Japanese government to acknowledge that radiation had played a factor in bringing about casualties in the Fukushima prefecture.

The true effect on workers and residents in the area won’t be known for some time. It took between six and eight years for survivors of the atomic bombs dropped on Japan by the United States to develop acute leukemia.


LIE #2: Not as bad as Chernobyl  
Fukushima is described as the “worst since Chernobyl,” but in reality, it may turn out to be a lot worse [than Chernobyl].

Both disasters were rated seven on the International Nuclear Event Scale, categorizing them as a “Major Accident.”

Perhaps they need to turn the scale 'up to eleven' in order to reflect the severity of the Japanese disaster.

The final consequences may be far more damaging due to groundwater contamination and the number of reactors involved.


In 1986, Chernobyl had four operating reactors, one of which melted down. The remaining reactors were eventually shut down. Fukushima, on the other hand, had six operating reactors, of which three entered meltdown, and a fourth was left in an unstable condition. Only two were successfully shut down.

Fukushima’s location, situated along the sea and a former riverbed, also meant that the potential for harm in the event of a meltdown was greater than that for Chernobyl, which had no problems involving groundwater.

The cleanup operation could take up to a hundred years, according to a former nuclear industry executive.


[AND ACCORDING TO TEPCO'S OWN ADMISSION, AS WE'VE SEEN IN PREVIOUS ARTICLES OUT OF JAPAN.]


LIE #3: Not poisoning children
Toshihide Tsuda, a professor of environmental epidemiology at Okayama University, found that thyroid cancer rates in the prefecture were from 20 to 50 times higher than the national level, according to The Japan Times.

The findings were based on a screening of 370,000 residents, which “is unlikely to be explained by a screening surge,” according to Tsuda, who cited radiation exposure as a factor.

[READ MORE: Fukushima medical survey confirms 16 NEW child thyroid cancer cases]


A citizens’ group with parents of children whose thyroid cancers were detected because of Prefecture’s thyroid exams requests Fukushima Prefecture to expand the exams.

DID THEY EXPAND THEM AS PARENTS REQUESTED?
NO, THEY ARE STOPPING THE EXAMS!

FROM THE BEGINNING, JAPANESE MOTHERS HAVE BEEN BEGGING FOR HELP AS THEY SAW THEIR CHILDREN WITH WHAT APPEARED TO BE RADIATION BURNS AND RADIATION SICKNESS, AS THEY'VE WATCHED THEM DEVELOP THYROID NODULES, SKIN ERUPTIONS, SEEN CHILDREN BORN WITH BIRTH DEFECTS, SEEN THEM STILLBORN.

LIE #4: It’s not poisoning the land, ocean, air.
Fish containing 258 times the level of radiation deemed safe for consumption have been found in Japanese markets.
[The SAME was found in rice, mushrooms, vegetables, milk.]

“Deformed” daisies, trees, vegetables, insects, reptiles, amphibians, farm animals, offspring of abandoned pets are found near the site.

Radioactive Boar Causing Havoc Near The Fukushima Power Plant

NO SAFE WATER.
Almost every river within 100 miles of the Dai'ichi plant is now known to be high in radiation, dangerously high, as are wells near there ( as the Tea Room previously showed via well readings taken there not long ago).

Tokyo is still seeing areas with unsafe levels of radiation, but no one can explain why.

School yards, parking lots, country roads are lined and stacked with huge plastic bags containing waste material scraped up and cut down from highly radiated areas, and those stacks are leaking.

Forests, entire forests, that have NOT been "cleaned" are dying, and the hillsides allow water from those areas to run down onto farmlands below.



HOW CAN THE ABE REGIME CLEAN THE RAIN, THE TREES, THE AIR, THE SOIL?
IT CAN'T DO IT!
WHAT ABOUT REPORTS THAT MALE INFERTILITY IN JAPAN HAS RISEN SINCE THE "ACCIDENT"?
WE KNOW THAT IS ONE SIDE EFFECT OF RADIATION.


The ultimate long-term effect of this disaster is still immeasurable, with even the government estimating that the cleanup will take at least another 50 years.
Nancy Foust from the Fukushima Project has warned that it would be premature to allow people to return to their homes in the area.

“They have a lot of complicated, very risky work that they need to do over the next couple of decades to remove the melted fuel,” Foust said.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wants to restart as many reactors as possible, believing that nuclear energy should remain a key power source for Japan."


IF ABE REALLY BELIEVES THAT, LET HIM MOVE HIS QUARTERS, HIS HOME, HIS ENTIRE FAMILY TO FUKUSHIMA.
LET HIM LIVE NEAR ANY NUCLEAR REACTOR TO SHOW US HOW "SAFE" IT IS.

LET HIM DRINK ONLY WATER FROM THOSE RADIATED RIVERS, EAT FOOD GROWN ONLY IN THE FUKUSHIMA PREFECTURE, AND SEND HIS FAMILY'S CHILDREN TO SCHOOL IN ONE OF THOSE TOWNS THAT HE'S PUSHING RESIDENTS BACK INTO!


LET ABE PUT UP OR SHUT UP AND ADMIT WHAT A LIE THIS ALL HAS BEEN, IS NOW, WILL BE TOMORROW, BUT LET HIM DO SO BEFORE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE FLOCK TO JAPAN FOR THE 2020 OLYMPICS AND GO HOME TO GET CANCER A YEAR, 2 YEARS, 10 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD.

IF HE HAD ONE HONORABLE CELL IN HIS BODY, HE'D CALL OFF THE OLYMPICS AND EVACUATE JAPAN UNTIL THIS MESS IS CLEANED UP.


“Normalizing” Nuclear Catastrophe: Japan's Abe Government  

"A plan to force 6,000 residents back into the evacuated zone in 2017."


Did Abe Lie To Olympic Committee About Fukushima Safety

YES, YES HE DID, SAY MANY.
   

Japan Times Herald: Abe Lied In Pitch To Olympic Committee



AS ONE RATHER CALLOUS INDIVIDUAL PUT IT IN A CERTAIN FORUM I VISITED, "THE ONLY REALISTIC SOLUTION IS TO EVACUATE JAPAN AND THEN APPLY THE HIROSHIMA SOLUTION. NUKE IT, LET IT COOL OFF, MOVE THE PEOPLE BACK."

THAT'S HARSH, COLD, A BIT STUPID, BUT WITH TIME RUNNING OUT FOR EVERYONE, WITH THE FULL KNOWLEDGE THAT WE'RE ALL GOING TO BE AFFECTED BY ANOTHER 40 TO 100 YEARS OF THIS CONSTANT RADIOACTIVE  CONTAMINATION, THAT EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING MUST SOMEHOW SUFFER THROUGH IT, "LIKE GOOD LITTLE SOLDIERS", IT MAY TAKE SOMETHING "STUPID" TO FIX THE "STUPID" THAT TEPCO AND THE ABE REGIME HAVE HANDED US SO FAR.

WHEN, AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT, YET ANOTHER MEGA-QUAKE AND ANOTHER TSUNAMI OR A STRONG TYPHOON COULD DO WHAT WAS DONE 5 1/2 YEARS AGO, BLOW ALL THOSE REACTORS SKY-HIGH, WHAT, REALLY, ARE THE OPTIONS?


Typhoon Lionrock Might Land On Fukushima Daiichi

MAY IT ALL HOLD TOGETHER...AGAIN...
BTW, WHEN YOU READ IN THE MEDIA OR WHEN SOMEONE ARGUES WITH YOU THAT "RADIATION LEVELS ARE NOT THAT HIGH IN JAPAN", ASK, "DO YOU MEAN IN THE AIR, OR ON THE GROUND, IN WATER OR IN FOOD?"

AS THIS VIDEO SHOWS <HERE> , A FEW INCHES, A FEW FEET, A MORE EXPENSIVE METER THAT CAN MEASURE ALPHA, BETA AND GAMMA MAKES A LOT OF DIFFERENCE IN THOSE "LOW" READINGS, SAME AS HERE IN AMERICA.

AFTER ALL, TEPCO WAS CAUGHT SHIELDING THEIR METERS MORE THAN ONCE SO THE LEVELS DIDN'T LOOK QUITE SO BAD.
THEY HAVE ALSO BEEN DISCOVERED USING METERS THAT WON'T MEASURE ABOVE 100 MILLISIEVERTS.


WHEN WILL THE LIES AND COVERUPS AND COMPLICITY END? 

IT CAN'T...JAPAN MUST CONTINUE DOWN THE PATH THE ABE REGIME HAS CHOSEN.

AND WE, MY FRIENDS?

WE CAN HOPE AND WE CAN CONTINUE THE FIGHT TO ENLIGHTEN THOSE WHO JUST DON'T KNOW THE REALITY OF THIS NIGHTMARE. 

MAY SOMEONE FIND SOME WAY TO TRULY END IT.

    1. @ carrie again...I noticed just as I hit "reply" on the other comment that you are in Australia. I am much, much interested in that business of the "killer thunderstorms" that caused several deaths there not long ago. What can you tell us of that, please? My son's in-laws are from Australia and I am concerned that they may not be aware of everything that was discovered as to why simple thunderstorms killed people.I am also very interested in those noctilucent clouds you get there and those amazing plasma tubes overhead in Australia. Please do comment if you have a 'take' on what's up there.

      I will try to watch closely and get all comments published more quickly. I am considerably behind.
      And, as always, if you do NOT wish your comments published to the Tea Room, all you have to do is tell me "NOT for publication".
      Many thanks, again.

  3. I have just found your blogs for the first time and have spent the day reading through the information. I am aware of a lot but this is so much bigger than I imagined possible. Thank you for sharing this information and the TRUTH. It saddens me greatly to witness so much suffering and destruction. My Children and Grandchildren deserve so much more....we all deserve peace and freedom. sincerely Carrie from Australia

    1. @ carrie, Thank you very much for reading and taking the time to leave a comment.
      Yes, we do ALL deserve peace AND freedom...and HEALTH, as much as it is possible. My main concern is always the children. We owe them as grand a world as we can possibly leave to them, not a radiated, contaminated heap with death all around them. The truth is much bigger and extends much further than we have dared to imagine, but I see HOPE! People ARE awakening from the long, silent slumber and are beginning to demand FACTS.I am certain we CAN take charge of our "destiny", or whatever one wishes to call it, but not by being still & quiet. We MUST "rock the boat".
      May your children and grandchildren also grow to demand truth.
      Knowledge is power.
      We learn, or we perish.
      All the best.
      WW
