SILENTLY, SHINZO ABE HAS WON WORLD WAR THREE. THE 'RISING SON' OF THE RISING SUN HAS WON.
IN BOTH OF THESE VIDEOS, JUST THE FACTS, WHICH ARE NO LONGER REPORTED BY OUR MSM.
WHO WONDERS WHY THAT IS?
WHY, IN THE BEGINNING, 2011, UNTIL EARLY 2013, WERE THERE IN-DEPTH DAILY REPORTS BY MAINSTREAM MEDIA POINTING OUT THE VERY REAL DANGERS TO HUMANITY IF THE LEAKS WERE NOT STOPPED AND THE NUCLEAR PLANT QUICKLY DECOMMISSIONED, CALLS FOR FOREIGN INTERVENTION, INTERVIEWS OF TOP SCIENTISTS (SINCE DISCREDITED AND RIDICULED BY THOSE WHO INTERVIEWED THEM) AND THEN....SILENCE?
THE MELTDOWNS CONTINUE, THE LEAKS INCREASE DAILY, THE DANGER IS STILL REAL.
ONE OF THE MOST PROFOUND STATEMENTS I HAVE COME ACROSS IN THE SIX YEARS SINCE THE DAI'ICHI NUCLEAR PLANT HAD A TRIPLE MELTDOWN IN 2011:
"Radiation levels at Fukushima are comparable to a nuclear explosion that doesn’t end."THAT'S QUITE A DIFFERENT APPRAISAL THAN WHAT WE READ IN MAINSTREAM MEDIA (MSM) TODAY, ISN'T IT?
BUT TODAY, WE HARDLY READ OF IT AT ALL EXCEPT EACH "ANNIVERSARY" OF THE ONGOING NUCLEAR DISASTER.
WHAT THE ABOVE HIGHLIGHTED STATEMENT MEANS IS THAT THE ABE REGIME AND ITS PARTNER IN CRIME, TEPCO, HAVE DECIDED THAT THEY WILL BOMB THEIR OWN PEOPLE EVERY DAY, FOREVER.
IT ALSO MEANS THAT THEY FULLY EXPECT THE REST OF US TO ACCEPT THE FALLOUT FROM THOSE DAILY BOMBINGS.
THAT'S JUST THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER.
SO FAR, THEY ARE CORRECT...WE ARE ACCEPTING THIS, AREN'T WE?
HOW MANY MORE MUST STATE THE OBVIOUS BEFORE ALL THE WORLD DEMANDS INTERVENTION IN JAPAN?
Comments on April 29, 2016 by Charles Perrow, Yale University professor emeritus and Stanford University visiting professor, on Fukushima (at 1:34:30 in of a videotaped conference) and the link to die-offs on America's west coast:
"Could I just make an observation that’s been missing from this interesting discussion?
The Fukushima accident is not over – not by any means… The cancer rate in Japan is going to rise steadily. It’s going to be denied by the government because there’s no transparency on this issue in Japan.
And it’s going out into the ocean and we’re seeing damage in the marine life in the West Coast of the U.S. and British Columbia.
There’s no way that’s going to be stopped, until they get the molten cores out of there, and they have no way — that they know of — of doing that.
Nobody has any idea what to do about the continuing Fukushima contamination."
AT A MARCH 10, 2016 CONFERENCE, PERROW HAD STATED:
"A rapid rise in the death of fish and other marine life along the west coast of the US and Canada is thought to be the result of the radioactive material from the river. It will go on for several decades."
22 March 2016
"The Japanese government is purposely not providing specific descriptions of the life-threatening risks of nuclear energy, in order to avoid public backlash."
-- Tadahiro Katsuta, Associate professor, Meiji University, Japan
[NOTE: Read the rest of Katsuta's and Perow's statements at the red triple asterisks *** far below.]
RECENTLY, FOR A FEW DAYS, THE MSM CROWD BARELY REPORTED ON THE NEW HISTORICALLY HIGH LEVELS COMING OUT OF THE COLLAPSED UNIT 2 REACTOR BUILDING, THEN, AS ALWAYS, SILENCE...UNTIL MARCH 11, THE SIXTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CATASTROPHE, WHEN WE GOT THE CURSORY 'REPORTS' ON THE SLOW PROGRESS, THE ENORMOUS COST OF CLEANUP AND A FEW MENTIONS THAT EVACUEES ARE BEING FORCED BACK INTO VILLAGES WHERE RADIATION LEVELS REMAIN ABOVE WHAT'S "ALLOWED".
READ THE SENTENCE AGAIN:
"Radiation levels at Fukushima are comparable to a nuclear explosion that doesn’t end."HOW BIG A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION WOULD THAT BE?
CAN WE IMAGINE SUCH A THING AS EITHER ONE OF THOSE EXPLODING EVERY HOUR OF THE DAY, EVERY DAY, EVERY WEEK, EVERY MONTH, FOR SIX YEARS?
THIS WAS THE SENTENCE THAT MADE ME AWARE THAT THERE IS NO MORE NEED TO HAMMER OUT ANY MORE POSTS ABOUT FUKUSHIMA...ABE HAS WON... I SHAN'T BE WRITING ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT FUKUSHIMA. THERE WILL BE NO FIX, NONE.
THIS POST IS QUITE LENGTHY BECAUSE IT IS MY LAST ON FUKUSHIMA. TEPCO HAS SAID IT WILL BE AT LEAST 40 YEARS BEFORE THEY CAN BEGIN TO DECOMMISSION THE DAI'ICHI PLANT40 MORE YEARS.CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATES SAY IT WILL BE 70 YEARS BEFORE THE ENTIRE MESS IS CLEANED UP.
MORE REALISTIC ESTIMATES SAY 100 TO 150 YEARS.
70 MORE YEARS OF DAILY BOMBS?
NO CIVILIZATION CAN WITHSTAND THAT.NO LIFE CAN POSSIBLY CONTINUE FOR 100 YEARS OF SUCH RADIATION LEAKS.
CHERNOBYL WAS MUCH BIGGER THAN A HIROSHIMA BOMB... 400 TIMES BIGGER.
AND, AS YOU WILL SEE BELOW, ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE INITIAL EXPLOSIONS, IN JUST ONE DAY, FUKUSHIMA EMITTED MORE RADIATION THAN CHERNOBYL HAS EMITTED TO DATE.
IN JUST ONE DAY, FUKUSHIMA SURPASSED CHERNOBYL, AND WITH THE LATEST ADMISSIONS BY TEPCO, FUKUSHIMA'S POWER PLANT IS NOW EMITTING, DAILY, MORE THAN TWICE AS MUCH RADIATION AS WAS EVER RECORDED AT CHERNOBYL.
THIS RADIATION IS COMING NOT FROM THE REACTOR CORE, AS WAS CHERNOBYL'S HIGHEST READING, BUT FROM SOMEWHERE BENEATH THAT REACTOR, FROM ESCPAED CORIUM... 650 SIEVERTS PER HOUR.
"The highest radiation level measured at Chernobyl was 300 sieverts an hour."
"It can be hard to predict the impact of radiation on humans but around half of all those exposed to 5 sieverts will die from it.
Almost all who receive a dose of 10 sieverts will die within weeks.
A typical dose for those workers who died within one month of the disasters was 6 sieverts.
Lowest annual dose at which any increase in cancer is clearly evident 100 mSv, 1/10th OF 1 SIEVERT (1000mSv = 1Sv).
The International Conference “One Decade After Chernobyl” refers to “about 200,000 ‘liquidators’ who worked in Chernobyl during the period 1986-1987 (MILITARY RESERVISTS WERE CALLED UP FOR DUTY) and estimating the total number of people registered as involved in activities relating to alleviating the consequences of the accident at between 600,000 to 800,000.
The sarcophagus that currently encases Unit 4 of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant is a giant metal concrete and structure quickly constructed as an emergency measure in 1986 to halt the release of radiation into the atmosphere following the explosion.
It is estimated that within the shelter there is 200 tons of radioactive corium, 30 tons of contaminated dust and 16 tons of uranium and plutonium, FROM JUST ONE REACTOR MELTDOWN.
On December 22 1988, Soviet scientists announced that the sarcophagus would only last 20–30 years before requiring restorative maintenance work.
The Object Shelter was never intended to be a permanent containment structure.
Its continued deterioration has increased the risk of its radioactive contents leaking out.
In 2010 it was revealed that water leaking through the sarcophagus roof was becoming radioactively contaminated before seeping through the reactor’s floor into the soil.
22 years AFTER the explosion, radiation levels inside the reactor hall were approximately 34 Sv/hr – a lethal dose in 10-20 minutes.
Radiation levels can change daily, dependent upon a number of factors including wind speeds. Just because you measured a level yesterday doesn’t mean it’ll be the same today as pockets of radiation move around. Large variations in levels can also occur within only a few metres of each other.
During the Chernobyl disaster four hundred times more radioactive material was released than at the atomic bombing of Hiroshima."
CHERNOBYL DIDN'T HAVE A TRIPLE MELTDOWN, DIDN'T LOSE THE CORIUM INTO THE GROUND, DIDN'T LEAK HUNDREDS OF TONS OF WATER INTO THE PACIFIC DAILY, DIDN'T CONTAMINATE GROUNDWATER BENEATH THE PLANT, DIDN'T SEND WASTE OFF TO BE BURNED AT SITES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, DIDN'T STORE MILLIONS OF PLASTIC BAGS OF RADIOACTIVE DEBRIS ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRYSIDE, IN SCHOOLYARDS, IN APARTMENT COMPLEX PARKING LOTS AND PARKS.
CHERNOBYL DIDN'T SEE ITS RADIATION SPREAD BY OCEAN WINDS, BY TYPHOONS, BY FREQUENT TORRENTIAL RAINS, BY WATER WASHING DOWNHILL FROM ABOVE THE SITE, RUNNING BENEATH THE PLANT, POCKING UP RADIATION FROM THE MELTDOWN.
FISH AND CROPS FROM THE CHERNOBYL EXCLUSION ZONE WERE NOT SOLD IN A LOCAL OR INTERNATIONAL MARKET.
ABE GARNERED PROMISES FROM OUR GOVERNMENT TO BUY AND TO STOP LABELING JAPANESE FOOD ITEMS.
FUKUSHIMA IS VASTLY DIFFERENT AND FAR MORE DEADLY THAN CHERNOBYL. THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT HAS NOT ACTED AS RESPONSIBLY AS THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT.
TEPCO AND THE ABE REGIME HAVE NOT ENLISTED THE MILITARY NOR TRAINED PROFESSIONALS BUT INSTEAD HAVE PULLED THE HOMELESS OFF THE STREETS AND SENT IN LOW-PAID WORKERS WHO MAY NOT REMAIN EVEN A WEEK BEFORE FLEEING. INSTEAD OF MOUNTING A HUGE DECONTAMINATION EFFORT CONCENTRATED AT THE SITE, THE ABE REGIME HAS MERELY USED RESOURCES TO SHUFFLE THINGS ABOUT, MOVING THE HAZARDS FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER, UNABLE TO SEND ANY WORKERS INTO REACTOR 2, UNWILLING TO PAY FOR THE MANPOWER IT WOULD TAKE TO MAKE POSITIVE HEADWAY.
CHERNOBYL'S DAMAGED REACTOR BUILDING WAS ENCASED IN A SARCOPHAGUS WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR, BUT FUKUSHIMA'S PLANT CANNOT BE SO ENCLOSED BECAUSE THEN IT WOULD JUST SIT THERE AND CONTAMINATE GROUND WATER BENEATH IT, LEAK INTO THE SEA, AND THE ESCAPED CORIUM WILL KEEP SENDING OUT LETHAL DOSES OF RADIATION FOR AS LONG AS IT REMAINS IN THE GROUND.
30 YEARS AFTER THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT, WILDFIRES BURNING IN THE AREA NEAR THE PLANT SET OFF ALARMS ACROSS EUROPE AND OFFICIALS ADMITTED THAT THE RISING, WAFTING SMOKE WOULD CARRY RADIATION ALOFT AGAIN.
ABE WON'T ADMIT THAT THE SAME HOLDS TRUE AT FUKUSHIMA, THAT TEPCO CANNOT DECONTAMINATE THE FORESTS, THE UNDERBRUSH, THE ROCKS, THE RIVERS THAT ARE RECONTAMINATED AFTER EVERY RUNOFF FROM EVERY RAINSTORM, OR WHEN THE WINDS CHANGE...
TEPCO AND THE GOVERNMENT HAVE OPENLY BURNED RADIOACTIVE WASTE THERE SINCE THE CLEANUP BEGAN AND PROVIDES NO WARNINGS OR READINGS TO NEIGHBORING NATIONS WHERE THAT SMOKE MIGHT DRIFT TO.
OVER 500,000 METRIC TONS OF SUCH WASTE WAS ACCEPTED BY TOKYO, BURNED WITHOUT NOTICE TO EVEN TOKYO RESIDENTS.
THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT, DESPITE PROTESTS, HAS TRIED TO PASS LEGISLATION ALLOWING ALL THOSE MILLIONS OF BAGS OF CONTAMINATED SOIL TO BE "RECYCLED" BACK INTO THE JAPANESE ENVIRONMENT, KNOWING IT IS ALL STILL RADIOACTIVE AND DEADLY.
FUKUSHIMA RADIATION CAN'T BE MEASURED, BUT THE MOST RECENT 'ESTIMATE', DONE MATHEMATICALLY BY TEPCO, WAS 650 SIEVERTS PER HOUR, MORE THAN TWICE CHERNOBYL'S PEAK.
"TEPCO analyzed the footage (from the destroyed robot) and concluded that the doses amounted to about 650 sieverts per hour, which is deadly enough to kill a human in less than a minute.
As the robot’s camera was designed to withstand a cumulative dosage of 1,000 sieverts per hour, the utility commented that “it’s consistent with how the camera started to break down after two hours.”
AND THEY CAN'T STOP THE RADIATION LEVEL FROM RISING AND FROM CONTINUING EVERY DAY, 24 HOURS A DAY.
'DUCT TAPE FIXES AND A KICK-STAND' WON'T WORK
'The site has been propped up with duct tape and a kick-stand for over two years'
Many of their 'fixes' are only temporary, as there are so many issues to address, and cost always seems to be an enormous factor in what gets implemented and what doesn't.
As a comparison: Chernobyl was one reactor, in a rural area, a quarter of the size of one of the reactors at Fukushima.
There was no 'spent fuel pool' to worry about. Chernobyl was treated in-situ...meaning everything was pretty much left where it was while the effort to contain it was made (and very expeditiously I might add) not only above ground, but below ground.
At Fukushima, we have six top-floor pools all loaded with fuel that eventually will have to be removed, the most important being Reactor 4, although Reactor 3 is in pretty bad shape too.
Spent fuel pools were never intended for long-term storage, they were only to assist short-term movement of fuel. Using them as a long-term storage pool is a huge mistake that has become an 'acceptable' practice and repeated at every reactor site worldwide.
We have three 100-ton melted fuel blobs underground, but where exactly they are located, no one knows.
Whatever 'barriers' TEPCO has put in place so far have failed.
Efforts to decontaminate radioactive water have failed.
Robots have failed.
Camera equipment and temperature gauges...failed.
Decontamination of surrounding cities has failed.
'If and when the corium reaches the Tokyo aquifer, serious and expedient discussions will have to take place about evacuating 40 million people'
We have endless releases into the Pacific Ocean that will be ongoing for not only our lifetimes, but our children’s' lifetimes.
Across the Pacific, we have at least two peer-reviewed scientific studies so far that have already provided evidence of increased mortality in North America, and thyroid problems in infants on the west coast states from our initial exposures. We have increasing contamination of the food chain, through bioaccumulation and biomagnification.
There is no example historically to draw from on a scale of this magnitude.
Everything is theory.
But anyone who says this can't happen is not being truthful, because nobody really knows how bad things could get.
The most disturbing part of all of this is that Fukushima has been this dangerous, and precarious, since the second week of March 2011.
MANY EXPERTS, WITH AS FINE A SET OF CREDENTIALS AS ANY 'EXPERTS' THE NUCLEAR ENERGY AND NUCLEAR REGULATORY BOYS HAVE TROTTED OUT, OR BETTER, RANK FUKUSHIMA AS "MAGNITUDES ABOVE THE LEVELS OF RADIATION GIVEN OFF BY CHERNOBYL"
THE BIG MEDIA, OWNED BY BIG CORPORATIONS THAT ARE CONNECTED TO NUKE ENERGY , NO LONGER INTERVIEW THOSE EXPERTS WHO HAVE WARNED FOR 6 YEARS NOW THAT FUKUSHIMA IS POISONING NOT ONLY THE PACIFIC OCEAN BUT THE ENTIRE PLANET.
IN THE BEGINNING, AS ANYONE CAN SEE FROM 2011 NEWS VIDEOS, IT WAS THE SAME EXPERTS LIKE KAKU WHOM THEY DID INTERVIEW THEN, BUT HAVE SINCE DISCREDITED.
DR. MICHIO KAKU, A RENOWN AND RESPECTED NUCLEAR PHYSICIST WAS ONCE SOUGHT BY THE BIG MEDIA NAMES, BUT HE TOLD TOO MUCH TRUTH AND OFFERED TOO MANY FACTS.
THE TEA ROOM HAS PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED DR. HELEN CALDICOTT'S , ARNIE GUNDERSON'S AND OTHERS CREDENTIALS TO SHOW THAT THEY ARE NOT "A BUNCH OF KOOKS". SEVERAL HAVE ADVISED THE GOVERNMENTS OF VARIOUS NATIONS ON NUCLEAR ENERGY.
MOST WERE INTRODUCED AS EXPERTS, BACK IN 2011.
AS TEPCO AND THE ABE REGIME WERE REVEALED AS LIARS AND COVER-UP ARTISTS, BIG NUKE PANICKED AND, FEARING THAT THE WORLDWIDE POPULACE WOULD DEMAND AN END TO ALL THINGS NUCLEAR, THEY PUT TOGETHER A TEAM TO CONVINCE THE WORLD THAT ALL IS WELL.
ALL IS NOT WELL.
ALL CAN NEVER BE WELL AGAIN.
SOME FOREIGN NEWS SOURCES ARE NOT AFRAID TO SAY SO.
Spiegel Online International (Der Spiegel, German news magazine), Feb. 5, 2015:
"The Fukushima catastrophe changed the world.
Nuclear reactors melted down on live television and twice as much radioactive material was released as during the Chernobyl accident in 1986.
Fukushima is more than just a place-name, it is an historical event."
THAT SPIEGEL ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN 2 YEARS AGO...THINGS HAVE WORSENED AT FUKUSHIMA SINCE THEN, THE TRUTH HAS BEEN MORE AND MORE REVEALED.
"Fukushima is still boiling its radionuclides all over Japan. Chernobyl went up in one go. So Fukushima is worse."
[August 26, 2011] scientists affiliated with the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said the plant had released 15,000 terabecquerels of cancer-causing Cesium, equivalent to about 168 times the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima, the event that ushered in the nuclear age.
Fukushima: Tokyo initially ordered a 20km radius exclusion zone around the plant.
Chernobyl: The initial radius of the Chernobyl zone was set at 30km – 25 years later it is still largely in place.
FUKUSHIMA RADIATION OVERWHELMS THE PEAK RADIATION FROM NUCLEAR BOMB TESTING IN ICE CORE SAMPLES.
"The depth of the peak β radioactivity in each snow pit compared with observational precipitation records, suggests that the radioactive fallout reached the Tibetan Plateau and was deposited on glacier surfaces in late March 2011, or approximately 20 days after the nuclear accident. The radioactive fallout existed in the atmosphere over the Tibetan Plateau for about one month."
AT PEAK, CHERNOBYL RELEASED 300 SIEVERTS PER HOUR AT THE CORE OF THE ONE MELTED REACTOR.
FUKUSHIMA HAS THREE MELTED REACTORS, CORIUM HAS ESCAPED INTO THE GROUND AT ALL THREE, MOST LIKELY, BUT TEPCO HAS ONLY MEASURED THIS ONE, JUST ONE, AND IT'S SITTING THERE SPEWING 650 SIEVERTS PER HOUR, 24 HOURS A DAY AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE REACTOR BUILDING.
ENTRANCE...AT THE ENTRANCE.
PLEASE REALIZE WHAT THAT TELLS US.
National Geographic, Apr. 14, 2014:
The meltdown at the Chernobyl power plant in 1986 made front-page news and, UNTIL JAPAN'S FUKUSHIMA DISASTER OF 2011, was considered the world’s worst nuclear accident.
CHERNOBYL WAS AT LEAST PARTIALLY CONTAINED BY A SARCOPHAGUS AND INVOLVED JUST ONE REACTOR.
JAPAN'S ACCIDENT INVOLVES THREE REACTOR UNITS WHERE THE CORIUM HAS ESCAPED CONTAINMENT, BUT ONLY ONE REACTOR BUILDING'S LEAKAGE HAS BEEN MEASURED.
THAT ONE HISTORICALLY HIGH READING MAKES FUKUSHIMA THE LARGEST CONTAMINANT OF OUR HUMAN ENVIRONMENT EVER SEEN ON EARTH.
REMEMBER THAT CHERNOBYL RESIDENTS, 30 YEARS AFTER THAT SINGLE REACTOR EXPLOSION, ARE FORBIDDEN TO LIVE IN THE EXCLUSION ZINE THERE?
JAPAN IS FORCING RESIDENTS BACK AFTER ONLY 6 YEARS.
GO HOME SO PEOPLE COMING TO THE OLYMPIC GAMES FEEL SAFE?
"Japan says Fukushima residents can return home, despite NGO report warning of high radiation level"
February 23, 2017
Almost six years after he was forced to leave his home following the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, the Japanese government informed Toru Anzai that it was safe for him to return to the small agricultural village of Iitate.
Greenpeace measurements outside on Anzai’s house, however, found that level to be 0.7µSv/h, which would equal 2.5 mSv per year (MORE THAN TWICE THE 'ALLOWED' RATE).
Inside his home the numbers were even higher, with values coming in at a range between 5.1 to 10.4 mSv per year.
Alongside lifting the evacuation order, the Japanese government also noted that it will end compensation payments to the former residents of Iitate after a year from when an area is declared safe again to live in.
Jans Vande Putte, a radiation specialist with environmental group Greenpeace and one of the authors of a report on the cleanup efforts in Iitate, told Fox News. “It’s like they’re running a PR campaign to say that everything is okay and we can now go back to normal.”
The organization’s report also noted that annual and lifetime exposure levels in Iitate pose a long-term risk to citizens who may return – especially young children. Scientific research found that on average a newborn girl is seven times more sensitive to radiation than a young adult.
The radiation levels, experts contend, are even more dangerous outside of the village and the area the government has allegedly decontaminated.
Keith Baverstock, a former regional adviser for radiation and public health at the World Health Organization and current medical researcher at the University of Eastern Finland, told Fox News. “If you eat anything grown locally, [your] levels of radiation are going to be unquestionably a lot higher.”
MANY OF US WILL RECALL THE WARNINGS IN 2011 ABOUT PACIFIC SEAWEED.
THEN, ALL THAT JUST DISAPPEARED... IT'S BACK...

L.A. Daily News Column: Radioactive kelp is California's "most under-reported story of the spring" -- "It's been somewhat radioactive off-and-on for months"
“Radioactivity is taken up by the kelp and anything that feeds on the kelp will be exposed to this also,” [California State University, Long Beach marine biology professors Steven L.

ALL THAT REPORTING ON SEAWEED BY THE MSM JUST SUDDENLY STOPPED, BUT SOME REMEMBERED.
Senator Penelope Wright, Parliament of Australia, Mar 5, 2015 :
“Like many others, I read an article in 2013 by Ivan Macfadyen called ‘The ocean is broken‘.
It was published in The Sydney Morning Herald. He is an experienced sailor, so he had the ability to compare his experience then with other trips.
It was chilling. It was heartbreaking really.
He had noticed changes in the last years. Basically, he was confronted by the silence that he heard, the silence on the seas, and he realised that this was attributable to the fact that they saw very, very few birds. They also caught very few fish...two fish."
Official Data: Lettuce from US West Coast nearly topped Chernobyl contamination limit; ‘Most dangerous’ alpha radiation also detected.
Fukushima poses “significant health risks” to areas thousands of kilometers away.
THE U.S. GOVERNMENT KNEW THAT THE FUKUSHIMA RADIATION TOPPED CHERNOBYL'S.
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (pdf), March 14, 2011: From Randy Sullivan — Thumbnail analysis of direct exposure rate reading on the Regan Aircraft Carrier. This is only an order of magnitude analysis, based on very limited data and calculation, but it seems to indicate an important consistency.
NRC performed a Rascal calculation for 40% core damage (melt) and design leakage (1%).
NARAC indicated they thought our calculation was a factor of 500 low based on a 0.6 mrem/hr reading on the aircraft carrier about 100 nautical miles away.
Historic Radiation Releases (MegaCuries)
-Chernobyl = 7.3 MCi
-Hiroshima = 1.4 MCi
-Hanford (I-131 only) = 0.74 MCi
-Three Mile Island = 0.000015 MCi
"Compared with other nuclear events: The Chernobyl explosion put 400 times more radioactive material into the Earth's atmosphere than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima while atomic weapons tests conducted in the 1950s and 1960s all together are estimated to have put some 100 to 1,000 times more radioactive material into the atmosphere than the Chernobyl accident." .
The radioactivity released at Chernobyl tended to be more long lived than that released by a bomb detonation hence it is not possible to draw a simple comparison between the two events.
FUKUSHIMA'S SIX-YEAR RELEASE OF RADIATION INTO AIR, WATER AND SOIL TOPS THEM ALL.
DESPITE THE DATA SHOWN ON THE MAP BELOW, THE EPA HAS NOT CHOSEN TO CLOSELY MONITOR EVEN OUR PACIFIC COASTAL STATES, EVEN WHEN WE KNOW THE LATEST PLUME FROM JAPAN HIT THOSE STATES THIS PAST YEAR.
ABOVE: REPORTING STATES, MARCH 31, 2011, 20 DAYS AFTER THE FUKUSHIMA DISASTER, JUST 20 DAYS.
WHAT WE KNEW THEN WAS THAT RADIATION FROM FUKUSHIMA WAS IN OUR MILK, WATER AND FALLING IN RAIN ONTO AMERICAN SOIL. THE STATES IN BLUE ON THE MAP ABOVE REPORTED THIS THEN.
THE EPA PROMISED TO ELEVATE RADIATION MONITORING...THEY LIED.
THE HUFFINGTON POST DID A SERIES OF ARTICLES ON THE NAVY'S HANDLING OF THEIR 'HUMANITARIAN AID MISSION' TO JAPAN RIGHT AFTER THE EXPLOSIONS AT FUKUSHIMA.
THEY NOTED THAT :
"NRC press releases in the United States all stated prominently that there was no danger from radioactive fallout.
But the transcripts tell another story.
On March 14 Jaczko’s conference call was interrupted by senior executive Jack Grob with bad news:
JACK GROB: Okay, guys, I apologize for bothering you, but things are degenerating quickly. ...what’s really troubling is that we, we have had that wind shift — the Chairman’s here, by the way — we’ve had that wind shift and the wind is out of the northeast blowing towards the southwest. That’s inland and towards Tokyo. And there’s an aircraft carrier in the port just south of Tokyo. It’s about 180 miles from the site, about 10 miles southwest of Tokyo, and they’re measuring on the order of 10 to 20 millirem over a 12-hour period total effective dose and roughly five to 10 times that...The, the answer is the dose rates don’t seem to be consistent either with what would be released or with the timing that it would take for a plume to get 180 miles away from the site to the southwest.
MIKE WEBER: Yeah, well, that’s what I struck me when you told us what’s going on.
JACK GROB: Yet, but the, the feedback through Trapp from the admiral is that they used multi* instruments and confirmed this in multiple ways [BLACKED OUT]
MIKE WEBER: Wow.
JACK GROB: They do operate nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, so they must have a level of competence that’s fairly decent.
This was Part 2 of a series on Fukushima fallout cross-posted by Roger Witherspoon at his Energy Matters blog. The first part can be accessed here. Coming next: Part 3 — “Cat and Mouse with a Nuclear Ghost.”
AS WE SAW IN THE RELEASED INTERNAL EMAIL ABOVE, YEAH, THEY UNDERESTIMATED THE RADIATION BY 500 TIMES WHAT IT REALLY WAS....THOSE SAILORS ALL GOT 500 TIMES THE DOSE THEY WERE TOLD THEY RECEIVED.
FROM THE 'FAKE NEWS SITE' CNN:
"There is no health risk from consuming milk with extremely low levels of radiation, like those found in Washington state and California, experts said Thursday, echoing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency."
THE EPA HAD ISSUED WARNINGS ON THE HAZARD OF LOW-LEVEL RADIATION WAY BEFORE FUKUSHIMA, EVER SINCE ITS INCEPTION, IN FACT, OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
THEY HAD MADE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT THE UNBORN, YOUNG CHILDREN, THE ELDERLY AND PREGNANT WOMEN WERE MOST AT RISK FROM "LOW LEVELS", FROM ANY LEVEL. .
THE EPA HAS LONG ADHERED TO THE "NO-THRESHOLD MODEL", STATING TIME AND TIME AGAIN THAT THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A NON-THREATENING LOW DOSE OF RADIATION, THAT THE SMALLEST DOSE CAN AND HAS CAUSED CANCER.
FEDERAL GUIDANCE REPORT NO. 10 SO STATED THAT, AS HAVE LATER "GUIDANCE REPORTS"...NO DOSE OF RADIATION IS SAFE, NOT ANY, AND THE EPA HAS ADHERED TO THAT, AS HAS THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION, AND UNTIL RECENTLY THE NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION.
HOW DARE CNN PRINT FAKE NEWS?
*** MORE EXPERTS SPEAK OUT ***
Five years after Fukushima: What have we learned from nuclear accidents?
Posted on April 29, 2016 By Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies.
Comments by Charles Perrow, Yale University professor emeritus and Stanford University visiting professor, on Fukushima (at 1:34:30 in) and the link to die-offs on America's west coast:
"Could I just make an observation that’s been missing from this interesting discussion? The Fukushima accident is not over – not by any means… The cancer rate in Japan is going to rise steadily. It’s going to be denied by the government because there’s no transparency on this issue in Japan.
There’s a particular example of the problem that intrigues me [which] is when they put the plant in, they not only dug it out so it’d be closer to the water source – the sea – but they put it where there was a river flowing underneath that area. They went up the hill and they diverted the river so that it flowed down on the sides of the large area there and that was no problem.
They never anticipated an earthquake could wreck their diversion. So now we have a strong underground river flowing directly under the plant where three huge globs of molten fuel are sitting on the bottom, giving off radiation, and sending that radiation into the water through the river that’s underneath the plant.
And it’s going out into the ocean and we’re seeing damage in the marine life in the West Coast of the U.S. and British Columbia.
There’s no way that’s going to be stopped, until they get the molten cores out of there, and they have no way — that they know of — of doing that.
Nobody has any idea what to do about the continuing Fukushima contamination.
Perrow referenced the Fukushima, Chernobyl and Three Mile Island nuclear accidents by asking a key question: “Why are we still building nuclear power plants after three major accidents?” he said. “We now have renewable energy in the form of wind and solar and geothermal that can replace this very dangerous, very expensive form of … power,” he said.
“There is a lot of pollution, when you add in the problems of uranium mining and radiation sickness for people living in close proximity.
These plants have to burp every once in a while.”
HIS COMMENTS ON WEST COAST CANCERS AND THE LINK TO FUKUSHIMA RADIATION DID NOT END THERE.
Fukushima: a lesson for the industry?
10 March 2016
"The huge earthquake followed by a gigantic tsunami was indeed a rare occurrence, and the poisoning of the ocean with tons of radioactive water every day is especially unexpected. Knowing of an underground river at the site, the Japanese constructed a diversion far up the slope, but the earthquake removed the diversion, and now we have a large river running under the site, picking up the radiation from the melted cores before going to the ocean.
A rapid rise in the death of fish and other marine life along the west coast of the US and Canada is thought to be the result of the radioactive material from the river. It will go on for several decades.
Fukushima is also not unique in the cozy relationship between the Japanese regulators and the plant’s owners, so thoroughly denounced by a Japanese parliamentary investigatory committee.
Even President Obama has denounced the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in the United States for being too close to the industry.
Attempts to close the Indian River plant near New York City for numerous violations and for leaking deadly tritium into the Hudson River have failed.
Even when nuclear plants are behaving safely, it has been found in Germany, France, and the United States that living close to the plant increases the chance of childhood leukemia. The plants have to regularly release some poisonous gas.
The United States, some experts claim, has censored information about nuclear failures at Three Mile Island and the weapons processing plants—for example, by settling damage claims of citizens under nondisclosure agreements.
But the Japanese have gone further, passing a secrecy bill in 2015 that provides for a prison sentence for publishing information the government has not approved of about nuclear plants.
Though there is evidence of thyroid cancers among the young that are 600 times the normal amount expected, the government will not openly address the issue.
Evidence of a larger “cancer epidemic” in Japan comes from non-nationals.
It is hard to see China being any more open than Japan. Therefore, Fukushima and its governance problems are far from unique.
Why has the expansion of a costly and dangerous technology occurred when renewable sources are inexpensive and efficiency measures so effective, especially for developing countries? I would suggest that since wind and solar are cheap, mass produced, decentralized solutions, neither is likely to interest giant corporations such as Toshiba (Westinghouse), General Electric or Areva, who find nuclear construction so profitable. Nor can government agencies handling wind and solar expect to be as powerful as the nuclear wings of the US Energy and Defense Departments.
Can we expect new nuclear plants, with untested safety features and possibly untrained operators, located in some cases in countries with little experience with technologically sophisticated tasks, to do better than Japan?"
SEVERAL WELL-RESPECTED COLLEAGUES AGREE WHOLE-HEARTEDLY WITH PERROW.

"The Japanese government is purposely not providing specific descriptions of the life-threatening risks of nuclear energy, in order to avoid public backlash.
Although most of the nuclear power plants are shut down at present, the Japanese government has continued to give subsidies.
By changing the subsidy system, the national government has maintained local governments’ economic dependency, as if continuing to give them drugs to keep them hooked. In other words, local governments which receive subsidies cannot afford to break away from the nuclear power, even if they fear it.
Ironically, right here in Japan, the Fukushima accident has not served as a "wake-up call" that makes the government or the nuclear industry pay attention to nuclear risks."
Kennette Benedict, Bulletin senior adviser, adjunct professor, Harris School of Public Policy, University of Chicago.

The fire that won't go out.
"Although decontamination efforts continue, reports of increased thyroid cancer suggest that the health of children has been compromised by the dispersal of radioactive material across a wide region after the hydrogen explosions at the power plants.
Food supplies in this rich agricultural region have been compromised, and wildlife and other vegetation in the region have been affected. The fisheries in Fukushima bay are contaminated by the continuous flow of radioactive ground water beneath and past the damaged reactors into the ocean and have been shut down.
Finally, public trust in government, corporate leadership, and even medical experts in Japan has been profoundly damaged.
And the disaster is by no means over.
Decommissioning the plant has not even begun, because plant officials have not been able to locate the damaged cores in the reactors; radiation is much too high for workers to enter the damaged reactor housing, and robots designed for the task keep breaking down because of the very high radiation levels.
Even attempts to stop the flow of ground water under the radioactive cores by chemically freezing the earth have not yet succeeded.
Current estimates are that it may take as long as 50 to 75 years and more than $250 billion to decommission the damaged power plant and clean up the area.
Finally, the products of nuclear fission, including melted fuel as well as other radiation-contaminated materials, will require continuous care and storage for tens of thousands of years. The question is whether any society has the capacity to safely deal with this fire that will not go out."
Tatsujiro Suzuki, director, Research Center for Nuclear Weapons Abolition, Nagasaki University

Unresolved issues remain.
"Even five years after the accident in 2011, the Fukushima nuclear accident is not totally over.
I have three major comments on the current situation.
1- Decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The situation is still far from “under control,” as prime minister [Abe] has contended since September 2013.
Significant risk associated with contamination still remains, and the progress in investigation of “melted core debris” is very slow.
There is still a risk that a large earthquake and tsunami or a large typhoon could hit again.
2- Decontamination and recovering areas of Fukushima prefecture. There are areas where you cannot expect a decline in radiation level for 20 to 30 years, or possibly longer. The government should make every effort to provide adequate support for those who may not be able to come back for such a long time. Interim storage and final disposal of a huge quantity of contaminated land is another serious source of social concern. Unfortunately, citizen participation in the decision-making process in Japan is not a well established practice, and so far the decisions by the government are made without much consultation with the public. A more open decision-making process seems essential to recover the public trust.
3- Compensation and welfare of evacuated people.
Here, lack of trust in scientific information on radiation risk is a serious source of concern. It is essential to establish an independent and trustworthy organization for scientific information.
As long as these three issues remain unresolved, the Fukushima accident will never be over."
HOW CAN ANYTHING THERE BE RESOLVED WHEN CORRUPTION IS RAMPANT?
"Three ex-TEPCO executives indicted over Fukushima nuclear disaster"
THE LIES THE "EXPERTS" TELL.
FROM THE ECOLOGIST,
"No matter what BBC says: Fukushima disaster is killing people"by Chris Busby
14th March 2016
"On the 5th Anniversary of the catastrophe we saw Prof Geraldine Thomas, the nuclear industry's new public relations star, walk through the abandoned town of Ohkuma inside the Fukushima exclusion zone with BBC reporter Rupert Wingfield-Hayes.At one point Rupert pulled out his Geiger Counter and read the dose of 3 microSieverts per hour.
"What does that mean", he asked, "how much radiation would it give in a year to people who came back here?"
Thomas replied, "About an extra milliSievert a year which is not much considering you get 2mSv a year from natural background. The long term impact on your health would be absolutely nothing."
Now anyone who has a calculator can easily multiply 3 microSieverts (3 x 10-6 Sv) by 24 hours and 365 days. The answer is 26 mSv (0.026Sv) not "about 1mSv" as the "leading expert on the health effects of radiation" told the dumbfounded viewers.
I visited Japan, took sophisticated measuring equipment, obtained vehicle air filters, spoke to the Japanese people and advised them to take Calcium tablets to block the Strontium-90. My vehicle air filter measurements showed clearly that large areas of north east Japan were seriously contaminated including Tokyo.
"From the results of our new genetic paper we can safely predict a 100% increase in congenital malformations in the population up to 200km radius. In an advanced technological country like Japan these will be picked up early by ultrasound and aborted."
The important evidence for me in the recent BBC clip is the measurement of dose given by Rupert's Geiger counter, 3microSieverts per hour (3μSv/h). Normal background in Japan (I know, I measured it there) is about 0.1μSv/h. So in terms of external radiation, Ruperts's measurement gave 30 times normal background.The question no-one asked is what is causing the excess dose?
The [radioactive] material is everywhere, and it is in the form of dust particles which can be inhaled. Invisible sparkling fairy-dust that kills hang in the air above such measurements.
The particles are not just of Caesium-137. They contain other long lived radioactivity, Strontium-90, Plutonium 239, Uranium-235, Uranium 238, Radium-226, Polonium-210, Lead-210, Tritium, isotopes of Rhodium, Ruthenium, Iodine, Cerium, Cobalt 60, the list is long.
The UN definition of radioactively contaminated land is 37,000Bq / square metre, and so, on the basis of the measurement made by the BBC reporter, the town of Ohkuma in the Fukushima zone (and we assume everywhere else in the zone) is still, five years after the incident, more than 20 times the level where the UN would, and the Soviets did, step in and control the population.
Last month, my German colleagues and I published a scientific paper in the peer reviewed journal Environmental Health and Toxicology. It uses real-world data from those exposed to the same substances that were released by Fukushima to show that the ICRP model is wrong by 1,000 times or more.
This is a game changing piece of research. But were we asked to appear on the BBC, or anywhere else? No.
What do our findings and calculations suggest will have happened in the five years since the explosions and into the future? Let's take a look at what has happened since 2011.
The reactors are still uncontrolled five years after the explosions and continue to release their radioactive contents to the environment despite all attempts to prevent this. Concerning the melted fuel, there is no way to assess the condition or specific whereabouts of the fuel though it is clearly out of the box and in the ground. Robots fail at the extremely high radiation levels found.
Ground water flowing through the plant is becoming contaminated and is being pumped into storage tanks for treatment. High radiation levels and debris have delayed the removal of spent fuel from numbers 1, 2 and 3 reactor buildings. TEPCO plans to remove debris from reactor 3 and this work has begun. Then they are hoping to remove the fuel rods out of reactors 1 and 2 by 2020 and the work on removing debris from these 2 reactors has not begun yet.
Much of the radioactivity goes into the sea, where it travels several hundreds of km. up and down the coast destroying sea life and contaminating intertidal sediment. The radionuclides bind to fine sediment and concentrate in river estuaries and tidal areas like Tokyo Bay.
Here the particles are re suspended and brought ashore to be inhaled by those living within 1km of the coast. From work done by my group for the Irish Government on the contaminated Irish Sea we know that this exposure will increase the rate of cancer in the coastal inhabitants by about 30%.
Only 10% of the plant has been cleaned up although there are 8,000 workers on site at any one time, mostly dealing with the contaminated water. Run-off from storms brings more contamination down the rivers from the mountains. There are millions of 1-ton container bags full of radioactive debris and other waste which has been collected in decontamination efforts outside the plant and many of these bags are only likely to last a handful of years before degrading and spilling their contents. Typhoons will spread this highly contaminated contents far and wide.
TEPCO are also burning waste from the plant in a single incinerator.
Further afield, contamination efforts to clean up the homes and roads are hampered by the torrential rains that are increasing because of global warming; the rain is bringing large amounts of contaminated soil back into these areas as well as the contaminated leaves and pollen from the forest areas that TEPCO are unable to clean.
Far off the shore there are natural areas that act as nurseries for many species of sea life. It has been found that intertidal marine species such as anemones, sponges, crustaceans, worms and bivalves within 30 km of the damaged reactors have disappeared altogether because of the 300 tons of highly radioactive water a day flowing out of the plant into the sea.
This water contains large amounts of tritium, making it radioactive; the effects of tritium on the larval stages of marine invertebrates has been studied in the UK. It was found at the University of Plymouth that levels involving doses of less than 1mSv of tritium inhibited the development.
Radioactivity from Fukushima has now migrated across the Pacific and is appearing on the West Coast of the USA. The scientific community there, like Gerry Thomas, subscribe to the flawed ICRP model, and since the levels of Caesium-137 measured are low, (maybe 10Bq/cubic metre of sea water), they say that there will be no health effects. But like Thomas they are wrong.
The problem is that 'dose' cannot be used to assess risk from internal radioactive particles. Dose is an average over large masses of tissue: but cancer begins in a single cell or local community of cells and these particles from Fukushima cause massive local doses. This is why there have been countless web reports of marine mammals with patchy sores or localised tumours.
The question of the ongoing effect of this Fukushima radioactivity on the Pacific biota far from Japan remains open.
The effects on wild creatures in Japan are clear and have been studied. There have been peer-reviewed reports of genetic damage in birds and in insects; a major scientist studying these genetic effects at Fukushima and in the Chernobyl affected areas also is Tim Mousseau.
But whilst he can study plants and animals, no-one can study humans. There is a kind of closure on such data, with the Japanese government controlling it. The government is more interested in getting Fukushima ready for the Olympics and is using financial and cultural pressure to move families back into contaminated zones.
Japan is also exporting radioactive produce, and is using trade agreements to bully countries into accepting these poisons on the basis of the ICRP model. I was in Korea a few months back as an expert witness in a radiation case involving high levels of thyroid cancer near their nuclear sites. I was told about Japan using international trade laws to force its contaminated foods on to the Koreans, who were measuring the radioactivity and sending the stuff back. So watch out for radioactive items from Japan.
So what's the evidence?
Let's look at the only real health data which has emerged to see if it gives any support to my original estimate of 400,000 extra cancers in the 200km radius.
Prof Tsuda has recently published a paper in the peer reviewed literature identifying 116 thyroid cancers detected over three years by ultrasound scanning of 380,000 0-18 year olds.
The background rate is about 0.3 per 100,000 per year, so in three years we can expect 3.42 thyroid cancers. But 116 were found, an excess of about 112 cases.
What we will see is a fall in the birth rate and increase in the death rate. We know what has been happening and what will happen; we have seen it before in Chernobyl. And just like Chernobyl, the (western) authorities are influenced by or take their lead from the nuclear industry: the ICRP and the International Atomic Energy Agency, (IAEA) which since 1959 has taken over from the World Health Organisation as the responsible authority for radiation and health (Yes, really!).
They keep the lid on the truth using stupid individuals like Geraldine Thomas and, by analogy with New Labour: New BBC. Increasingly I could say 'New Britain' as opposed to the Great Britain of my childhood, a country I was proud of where you could trust the BBC. I wonder how the reporters like Rupert can live with themselves presenting these lies.
Fukushima is far from being over, the deaths have only just begun."

FROM NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, MARCH 8, 2016
"Takue Hosokawa, Iitate. “My grandfather started this farm, and I inherited it from my father. When the nuclear reactor melted down, I refused to leave behind the horses, and I tended to all 130 of the animals on this farm despite the contamination around here. The radiation killed 90 of them, we only have 40 of them left alive. I watched them get sick and die over the last five years. What else could have done this?
Mayor Masato Shinagawa, Koriyama.
“The biggest problem facing Fukushima today is the decommissioning of the nuclear reactor and the decontamination of the prefecture.
I encourage you to look at the website of the city government. We post all of our radiation readings there. Our regional newspaper posts the readings as reported by Safecast [the citizen science network of radiation reporting].”
HUFFINGTON POST, 01/19/2016, UPDATED 17 JANUARY 2017
"For almost five years the crippled Fukushima’s nuclear reactor has poured thousands of tons of radioactive Cesium 134/137 and Iodine 131 wastewater into the Pacific, a spate of rare whales began recently washing ashore onto Japan. The casualties included a rare Hubbs’ beaked whale and a Stejneger’s beaked whale.
[NOTE: That link is to my article, . I just found this.]
In the second week of April (2015) a couple days prior to finding these rare whales, 160 dolphins beached themselves about 50 miles from Fukushima. Those necropsies exhibited ischemia or white lungs, which is linked to radiation poison from children at Chernobyl, Ukraine and survivors of the atomic bomb in Japan. The chief scientist said, “I have never seen this before.”
149 dead melon-head whales washed up along a Japanese beach, April 2015, and seven more were stranded in the nearby municipality of Kashima, Japan. [That is also a link to my article, ]
Another rare Cuvier’s beaked whale washed up along Scotland’s shoreline, Jan. 2015.
Earlier in 2015, almost a dozen deep diving Cuvier’s beaked whales were found dead along the west coast of Scotland - a five-fold increase in the number of stranded whales.
This much we do know: sonic airguns used to locate climate-altering fossil fuels shatter cetacean eardrums, which lead to an excruciating death.
Fukushima continues to uncontrollably bleed megatons of radioactive toxicity into the Pacific Ocean.
Last week (Jan. 14) the UK Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme presented data from 1,000 whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans) across Europe that showed the highest concentrations of man-made contaminants, most notably PCBs, ever recorded in ocean mammals. The researchers concluded that UK cetaceans are at risk of extinction due to lingering toxic chemicals.
Twelve enormous beached sperm whales died along the coast of the Dutch island of Texel and the German islands of Wangerooge and Helgoland last week. It is appalling to see these record-holding deep divers beached with blood trickling out of their mouths.
Also last week, at least 73 short-finned pilot whales lay dead along a stretch of beach in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Necropsies are underway there, too.
In June of 2015, 337, 23-tons each, Sei whales were found beached along a remote coast of Chile in one of the largest whale strandings ever recorded.
From May to June of 2015, 30 fin and humpback whales washed up along the coasts of northern British Columbia and Alaska in the northeastern Pacific Ocean. Necropsies have yet to reveal the cause of death.
In mid April of 2015, a rare 18-foot female juvenile Omura’s whale, once thought to be extinct, washed up along a beach near Exmouth, Western Australia - almost 800 miles north of Perth.
Rare beaked whales washed ashore in Japan, April 2015
[I find the following horrifying.]
From 2000 to 2010 about 100 million sharks a year or 1 billion animals were slaughtered to feed an insatiable demand for sharkfin soup in Asia. When apex predators like sharks or cetaceans are removed, ecosystems unravel.
There are only between 8,000-9,000 endangered blue whales remaining in the oceans.
The cetaceans are showing us that the oceans are toxic; what we do to the oceans we do to ourselves."
OF ALL THE DEAD WHALES NOAA HAS SAID IT WOULD PERFORM NECROPSIES ON, ONLY ONE RESULT WAS AVAILABLE AS OF TODAY AND THAT IS AN INCOMPLETE REPORT.
THEY THOUGHT THEY COULD BLAME THE DEATHS OF OVER 30 WHALES ON ALGAE BLOOMS, BUT THAT FAILED.
THEY THEN SAID THEY WOULD DO FURTHER TESTING.
OBVIOUSLY, EITHER THEY DIDN'T LIKE THE RESULTS AND WON'T REPORT THEM OR THEY SIMPLY DID NO FURTHER TESTS.
IF THEY FOUND RADIATION, WE WOULD NEVER KNOW.
30 DEAD WHALES IN A 2-WEEK TIME FRAME: 11 FIN WHALES, 14 HUMPBACKS, ONE GRAY, FOUR 'UNIDENTIFIED' AND NO FINAL NECROPSY RESULTS AFTER TWO LONG YEARS?
I SMELL A RAT...
Nov 27, 2016 - "We expect to have final results in a few weeks"THEY SAID THAT 2 YEARS AGO!
Only one dead Alaska whale has been sampled. Tests came back negative for domoic acid -- a toxin produced by algae
NO SURPRISE THAT IT WAS NOT FROM ALGAE BLOOM, ALTHOUGH ALGAE DOES BLOOM PROLIFICALLY IN RADIOACTIVE WATER.
It has been shown that the growth of different cyanobacteria and their toxin biosynthesis is greatly influenced by different abiotic factors such as light intensity, temperature, short wavelength radiations, pH, and nutrients (Neilan et al., 2013; Häder et al., 2014; Rastogi et al., 2014).
It has been suggested that UV-B radiation may significantly influence strain composition of cyanobacterial blooms in favor of microcystin (MC) producers (Ding et al., 2013).
U.S. NEWS REPORTED IN HOW WELL ALGAE SURVIVES IN HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE ENVIRONMENTS...LIKE FUKUSHIMA:
Microalgae May Help Clean Radioactive Pollution at Fukushima
There had been 60 unusual morality event declarations issued by NOAA for marine mammal die-offs. The last such declaration for Alaska was issued in 2011 in response to a mysterious disease that was killing and sickening ice seals.
2011, AND SCIENTISTS FROM CANADA REPORTED THE DETECTION OF FUKUSHIMA RADIATION IN THE SEALS AND ON THE ICE IN THE ARCTIC:
Alaska Marine Science Symposium (pdf), Jan. 20-24, 2014 :
"2011 Fukushima Fall Out: Aerial Deposition On To Sea Ice Scenario And Wildlife Health Implications To Ice-Associated Seals (Dr. Doug Dasher, John Kelley, Gay Sheffield, Raphaela Stimmelmayr)"We present results on gamma analysis (cesium 134 and 137) of muscle tissue from control and diseased seals, and discuss wildlife health implications from different possible routes of exposure to Fukushima fallout to ice seals."
THEN, THEIR VOICES WERE SILENCED!
IT WAS SUGGESTED BY THE CALIFORNIA GRAY WHALE COALITION IN 2014 THAT FUKUSHIMA RADIATION WAS KILLING HIGH NUMBERS OF WHALES.
"While the government downplays leaking ionizing radiation from Japan’s Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, scientific experts think human exposure results in clear levels of damage to the human body over time; including the lungs, thyroid, skin and liver being “very sensitive to radiation damage caused by specific radionuclides: alpha particles, beta particles and gamma rays.”
Scientific research points to “radiation” now being detected from Japan’s March 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant meltdown.
The Center for Marine and Environmental Radioactivity (CMER).
CMER scientists said they are “deeply concerned” about the unabated release of radioactive contaminants from the crippled Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant.
"Although government officials have joked that “nobody will be glowing just yet,” there are CMER and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientists that claim there is “an ongoing spread of radiation across the Pacific” that is “evolving into something horrible.”
THE PACIFIC OCEAN IS AWASH WITH RADIOISOTOPES THAT ARE RISKY TO HUMAN HEALTH TODAY, STATE CMER SCIENTISTS.
AND LATER, ONE REPORT AFTER ANOTHER... 13 baby gray whales and 55 dolphins found dead on West Coast — “Rash of dead humpback whales in Oregon” — “Corpses of sea lions, birds, sea turtles decomposing” — Mysterious deaths probed by government — “Fear for whales encountering radiation."
Feb. 3, 2014: Tokyo Gubernatorial Candidate and Former Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa: “Polar Bears, Seals Dying Because of #Fukushima…” — Mr. Hosokawa on a net-based TV on January 22, 2014.
Former Japanese prime minister says Abe lied to the Olympic committee, Fukushima is not under control. "Mr. Abe's 'under control' remark, that was a lie," Junichiro Koizumi said.
Koizumi also said he was "ashamed" that he had believed experts who assured him that nuclear power was cheap, clean and safe and that resource-poor Japan had to rely on nuclear energy.
After the Fukushima crisis, Koizumi said, "I studied the process, reality and history of the introduction of nuclear power and became ashamed of myself for believing such lies."
JUST 3 WEEKS AGO:
Euronews, Feb 23, 2017: Europe baffled by “recent release” of radioactive Iodine-131.
Iodine-131, as described by the IRSN, is of anthropogenic origins – meaning an environmental pollutant originating from human activity.
The mysterious origin of the radioactive element has baffled authorities, some of whom claim its presence could indicate either a secret Russian nuclear missile test launch, or a leak from a nuclear power plant. Iodine-131 has historical links to United States and Soviet nuclear tests.
It has also been found among the radioactive contamination following Japan’s Fukushima reactor meltdown.
LET'S LOOK AT 3 FACTS:
1- Over the past three years (2013 TO 2016), 80 to 90 percent of all California sea lion pups have died. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has dubbed it an “unusual mortality event.”
Between the 1980s and mid-90s, researchers at the Marine Mammal Center saw cancer in 18 percent of adult California sea lions they examined after death.
From 1998 through 2012, that number increased to 26 percent.
[BIG QUESTION: IF they have known cause of death on seals from 2013-2016, why the hell don't we have results on 30 dead whales from 2 years ago?]
The disease starts in the reproductive organs of adult males and females. By the time they die, tumors have sometimes infiltrated their backbones and turned vertebrae to “mush,” Tenaya Norris, a scientist at the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, California. says. She describes examining one dead animal whose spine she could simply slice through.
More than a quarter of the adult California sea lions that die at the Marine Mammal Center suffer from cancer, says director of veterinary science Shawn Johnson.
That’s one of the highest cancer rates seen in any wild animal.
The disease rates researchers are seeing among sea lions are far from normal, and they want to know why.
“Wild populations shouldn’t have cancers like this,” Johnson says.
AND WHAT IS WELL KNOWN TO CAUSE CANCERS, REPRODUCTIVE, THYROID AND BONE CANCERS?
2- RECENTLY, A WORKER AT THAT FUKUSHIMA PLANT WAS DIAGNOSED WITH THREE TYPES OF CANCER.
Kyodo News, Mar 1, 2017:
A former worker at the site of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster filed a lawsuit Tuesday with the Sapporo District Court seeking labor compensation from the state for his subsequent development of three types of cancer.
The man was diagnosed with bladder, stomach and colon cancers between June 2012 and May 2013 after taking part in work to clear debris with heavy machinery at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex… and was exposed to 56.41 millisieverts of radiation in total, according to his written complaint. His application for labor compensation filed at a labor standards supervision office in Fukushima Prefecture was rejected in August 2013. He repeatedly filed requests for re-examination of his application but they were also rejected… But his legal team said, “It’s rare for a person to develop three types of cancer at almost the same time.“
AND YET SEALS/SEA LIONS ARE ALSO EXHIBITING MORE THAN ONE TYPE SIMULTANEOUSLY.
AND PUPS ARE BEING BORN WITH CANCER.
SO ARE CHILDREN IN JAPAN, CHERNOBYL, NEAR HANFORD NUCLEAR FACILITY, IN THE 'DOWNWIND' TEST SITES IN THE AMERICAN SOUTHWEST, PACIFIC ISLANDS, ETC...
Press Conference at The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan, August 18, 2014:
Toshio Yanagihara, attorney representing Fukushima children and their parents
SEVERAL EXCERPTS FROM THAT VIDEO:
~ June 10th, 2014, the Fukushima committee in charge of researching thyroid cancer admitted for the first time that the suspicion of malignancy is due to the lymph node metastasis. This is the common thing that was found after the Chernobyl accident.
~In Fukushima right now, we see that the number of the children found with thyroid cancer — and the scale of this catastrophe is ongoing — it is going much faster than it was in the Ukraine after Chernobyl.
~Fukushima is a war zone, and children have a right to be evacuated to a safer place.
~In Japan, this present situation is the most harsh child-rearing situation in the world.
~They’re (the Japanese government) supposed to support and evacuate children from Fukushima during this war zone.
~It must be argued at the international court that this is a crime against humanity.
We would like to take this case to the International Criminal Court, and we’re preparing for that.
James Corbett of the Corbett Report: TEPCO has lied obfuscated and covered up the truth about what they knew about, or know about what is going on at sites since day one. And of course this goes back to the very beginning of the disaster when they knew within 72 hours that three of the reactors at the Fukushima No.1 plant site were in full melt down. In fact that they did not reveal to the public for almost three months after that event took place. And from there it only continues.
3. THIS IS NOT JAPAN'S FIRST NUCLEAR DISASTER.
AS THE FOLLOWING MAP AND DATA SHOW, IT ISN'T A MATTER OF "IF" BUT WHEN ANOTHER MAJOR EARTHQUAKE SHAKES THAT FAILING NUKE PLANT DOWN, AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THE WORLD WILL AT LAST SEE HOW BAD IT'S BEEN ALL ALONG, HOW MUCH THEY'VE BEEN LIED TO, BUT IT WILL SIMPLY BE TOO LATE.
THE ABOVE 30-YEAR 'PROBABILITY' MAP SHOWS US THE LIKELIHOOD OF FUTURE MEGA-QUAKES AND THE LOCATIONS OF PAST 6.0 AND ABOVE QUAKES FOR THIS REGION.
KNOWING THIS, JAPAN BUILT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS IN THE MOST HAZARDOUS PLACE ON EARTH FOR STRONG QUAKES.
THEY INVITED DISASTER AND DISASTER CAME.
BUT THOSE IN CHARGE OF "REGULATING" THE INDUSTRY ALLOWED THEM TO BUILD OVER MAJOR FAULTS, IN THE PATH OF TYPHOONS, TSUNAMIS, WITHING RANGE OF VOLCANIC ASH THAT WOULD CRIPPLE ANY POWER PLANT.
I DO WONDER IF THAT'S THE REASON, HONESTLY. .
ON FEBRUARY 28, 2017, THREE QUAKES IN ONE DAY, WITH THE LARGEST, A 5.7 MAGNITUDE, JUST 47 MILES FROM THE CRUMBLING FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR POWER PLANT.
THE 5.7 QUAKE OCCURRED AT ALMOST THE SAME LOCATION AS THE 2011 TOHOKU QUAKE THAT CAUSED SO MUCH DESTRUCTION AND DEATH IN JAPAN...
38.322°N 142.369°E IN 2011 AND 37.567°N 141.300°E ON FEBRUARY 28th.
IN THE PAST 30 DAYS, THE USGS RECORDS 40 MAGNITUDE 4.0 AND ABOVE EARTHQUAKES FOR JUST THIS REGION.
NO ONE ON EARTH KNOWS HOW MUCH STRESS FROM A QUAKE IT WOULD TAKE TO BRING DOWN WHAT'S LEFT OF THAT MOST DAMAGED UNIT #2 BUILDING AT FUKUSHIMA'S DAI'ICHI PLANT, WHERE RADIATION CANNOT BE MEASURED BUT IS ESTIMATED TO HAVE CLIMBED NOW TO ABOUT 650 Sv PER HOUR.
THIS IS THE HIGHEST READING EVER RECORDED, INCLUDING CHERNOBYL.
HOW OFTEN DOES MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORT ON HOW OFTEN JAPAN IS HIT BY QUAKES, VOLCANIC ERUPTIONS, TYPHOONS, TSUNAMIS?
THESE THINGS ARE VERY IMPORTANT.
There is a map that will not upload properly, nor can I find a way to copy it to place it here, which shows the many, many earthquakes that have struck near that crippled, leaking Fukushima nuclear plant, so, please, try this link to see that...
It really is mind-boggling how many quakes happen in that small area of the world.
The largest of the 3 quakes ON 02/28/2017 was, fortunately, at a depth of just over 38 kilometers.
The 9.0 quake of 2011 had a depth of about 29 km.
Earthquakes occur at depths from near the Earth's surface to about 700 km deep.
Below that depth, rocks are too hot and ductile, so they tend to bend and flow rather than break in a brittle manner.
The North America plate, Pacific plate, Philippine Sea plate, and Eurasia plate all influence the tectonic setting of Japan, Taiwan, and the surrounding area.
The Pacific plate, which moves at a rate of 8 to 9 cm (3.1 to 3.5 in) per year, dips under Honshu's underlying plate building large amounts of elastic energy.
This motion pushes the upper plate down until the accumulated stress causes a seismic slip-rupture event.
IT'S SIMPLY A MATTER OF WHEN, NOT IF, WE WILL SEE A MEGA-QUAKE THAT BRINGS DOWN THOSE DAMAGED REACTOR BUILDINGS AND CAUSES A WORLDWIDE CATASTROPHE THAT NO ONE IS IN ANY WAY PREPARED TO DEAL WITH.
MEANWHILE, NEW CORRUPTION IN THE HANDLING OF THIS PREVENTABLE 'ACCIDENT' CAME TO LIGHT THREE DAYS AGO
Two held for bribery over Fukushima project.
"An Environment Ministry official was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of taking bribes from a civil engineering company for helping it to win a decontamination project in Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan. The Tokyo metropolitan and Fukushima prefectural police departments arrested Yuji Suzuki, 56, an official of a branch of the ministry’s environment regeneration office in Fukushima, for taking bribes.
The police also arrested Mikio Kosugi, 63, former president of Daikai Kogyo, the civil engineering company based in Takaoka in Toyama Prefecture, central Japan, on charges of offering bribes.
This is the first corruption case that has come to light in connection with a project to decontaminate areas tainted by radioactive substances released from Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.’s Fukushima No. 1 power plant due to the meltdowns that followed the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, according to Fukushima police sources.
Suzuki allegedly received benefits worth more than ¥200,000 in total between September 2015 and June 2016 for helping the firm to join the decontamination project in the Fukushima town of Namie as a subcontractor.
The project was ordered by the ministry office, which was created in January 2012 to facilitate decontamination work. A consortium of contractors won the project for ¥47 billion in June 2015.
Environment Minister Koichi Yamamoto said he is deeply sorry that the incident has shaken public confidence in Fukushima decontamination projects."
THERE IS NO FUKUSHIMA 'DECONTAMINATION'!
EXPERTS FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE HAVE SHOWN REPEATEDLY THAT THE ENVIRONMENT, THE TREES, LAND, ROCKS, AIR, RAIN, RIVERS, BUILDINGS, FOOD CROPS, LIVESTOCK, OCEAN, NONE OF IT CAN BE DECONTAMINATED BECAUSE THE DAMNED THING IS STILL LEAKING LIKE A SIEVE AND THEY WON'T STOP THE LEAKS, NOR STOP BURNING RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATED WASTE NOR STOP PILING GLOW-IN-THE-DARK, SHODDY PLASTIC BAGS FULL OF SCOOPED-UP RADIOACTIVE DIRT AND DEBRIS ALL OVER THAT TINY ISLAND NATION.
THEN THERE ARE THE MILLIONS OF BARRELS OF CONTAMINATED WATER, ALSO SITTING AROUND LEAKING ONTO EVERYTHING.
THE RADIATION IS THERE, WILL BE THERE FOR CENTURIES, AND THEY CAN'T JUST BURY THE CURSED THING AND WALK AWAY.
IT'S SITTING THERE CONTAMINATING THE AQUIFER BENEATH IT, THE AIR ABOVE IT, THE GROUND ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN AS IT OOZES DEATH EVERY BLOODY DAY!
AND IT CERTAINLY IS NOT THE FIRST PROOF OF CORRUPTION IN HANDLING THIS NIGHTMARE BY THOSE ASSIGNED TO "CLEAN UP" FUKUSHIMA!
THERE'S TOO MUCH MONEY TO BE MADE IF THEY NEVER CLEAN IT UP, JUST KEEP PRETENDING TO.
Fukushima Fraud and Corruption: Japanese Organized Crime Involved in Recruitment of “Specialized Personnel”
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, October 25, 2013
"What prevails is a well organized camouflage. The public health disaster in Japan, the contamination of water, agricultural land and the food chain, not to mention the broader economic and social implications, have neither been fully acknowledged nor addressed in a comprehensive and meaningful fashion by the Japanese authorities.
The crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war”. In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami:
“This time no one dropped a bomb on us … We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives.”
Several Global Research reports and background articles have outlined the dangers of Worldwide radiation resulting from the Fukushima disaster.
This disaster is now being sustained and aggravated by the incompetence of TEPCO as well as political camouflage by the Abe government.
Fukushima and the Japanese Mafia, the Yakuza
There is another dimension: The coordination of the multi-billion dollar Fukushima decontamination operation relies on Japan’s organized crime, the Yakusa, which is actively involved in the recruitment of “specialized” personnel for dangerous tasks.
“The complexity of Fukushima contracts and the shortage of workers have played into the hands of the yakuza, Japan’s organized crime syndicates, which have run labor rackets for generations.” (Reuters, October 25, 2013)
REUTERS WAS NOT THE ONLY NEWS AGENCY THAT REPORTED ON THE LINK BETWEEN CRIME SYNDICATES AND THE ABE REGIME AND TEPCO, A "LOVE TRIANGLE" THAT DOES NOTHING BUT EXCHANGE MONEY WHILE PEOPLE DIE SLOWLY FROM THE LEAKING "ABE BOMB", THAT DAI'ICHI PLANT.
IN 2014, THE PLOT THICKENED...
TEPCO has hidden the truth about the Fukushima nuclear disaster and now drip feeds information so the public can get ready for the next piece of bad news, James Corbett, editor, The Corbett report wrote.
Journalist Jun Hori has quit NHK, the Japanese state broadcaster saying that his network restricted what he could say about the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and moved more slowly than others to report how far the radiation was spreading.
Kyodo, Feb. 7, 2014: TEPCO to review “massive” radiation data due to improper measurement – [TEPCO] said Friday that it will review a “massive” amount of radiation data it has collected at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant because readings may be lower than actual figures due to improper measurement. “We are very sorry, but we found cases in which beta radiation readings turned out to be wrong when the radioactivity concentration of a sample was high,” TEPCO spokesman Masayuki Ono told a press conference.
AND MORE LIES...LIES THAT COST COUNTLESS LIVES OVER TIME.
Japan Times, Feb. 11, 2014:
"Tepco hid record-level radiation data last July — [Tepco] did not tell the public until recently that massively high levels of radiation were found in groundwater collected last July at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, even though the utility was aware of the data that month, according to sources.
When Tepco reported the data to the Nuclear Regulation Authority last week, it initially claimed that it had only recently compiled the data, NRA sources said. However, the embattled utility later corrected the timing, apparently showing that it had withheld the record readings, the sources said.
The withholding of the radiation data looks to be the latest in a long line of missteps for the utility, experts said.
Tepco concluded at the time that the data were inaccurate, citing the huge difference in the two measurements, despite knowing that its method of measuring beta ray-emitting materials could show lower-than-actual levels, the sources said. [but] the utility has repeatedly changed its explanations.
MORE LIES.... STRONTIUM
Kyodo: 'Massive' amount of Fukushima data wrong?
"Figures can't be trusted"
NHK: Strontium-90 by ocean at 160,000 times limit -- Tepco: Actual levels "exceeded the upper limit of measurement... We are very sorry"
Kyodo/Jiji, Feb. 7, 2014: [TEPCO] said it will re-analyze past water samples because some of the figures can’t be trusted.
I COULD WRITE FOR WEEKS, MONTHS AND NOT SHOW YOU ALL THAT HAS BEEN FOUND, REPORTED, REVEALED, THE 'SCIENTIFIC, PEER-REVIEWED' STUDIES SOME SCREAM FOR...THERE ARE DOZENS.
IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH, IT'S OUT THERE. IF YOU WANT TO BELIEVE EVERYTHING IS FINE, NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, YOU BELIEVE JUST THAT.
FOR ME, IT'S A WRAP. JUST AS I REFUSE TO TRY TO POINT OUT THE LIES AND ONGOING DECEIT ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST AND AMERICA'S PART IN IT, I WON'T VISIT FUKUSHIMA AGAIN. WE HAVE SIMPLY REACHED THE POINT OF NO RETURN.
OVER 400 RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINANTS DUMPED INTO OUR ATMOSPHERE BY FUKUSHIMA IN JUST ONE DAY, IN AMOUNTS THAT EXCEEDED ALL THAT WAS RELEASED BY CHERNOBYL.
~ Estimation of radionuclide emission during the March 15, 2011 accident at the Fukushima-1 NPP (Atomic Energy Journal Volume 112, Issue 3), July 2012:
“According to estimates made by the present authors, the following radionuclides entered the atmosphere on March 15, 2011 (PBq): ~400 iodine, ~100 cesium, and ~400 inert gases.”
Russian Study: Fukushima released 100 quadrillion becquerels of cesium into atmosphere... In just ONE day.
~For background on how this could have happened, see this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this and this in your spare time....but, really, all that is a moot point now.
~ FUKUSHIMA, SIX YEARS ON
"Fukushima is regularly misreported as less drastic than the singe-reactor catastrophe at Chernobyl, in Ukraine, in 1986. But France’s Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety, reported five years ago that Fukushima was already the biggest single spill of man-made radioactive materials into to the marine environment ever seen or recorded. At least 300 tons of highly contaminated runoff have poured daily into the Pacific ever since.
Mayor Tamotsu Baba, of the town of Namie, said in August 2011 that his “people were unnecessarily exposed….” and that the government’s withholding of warnings about radioactive fallout was comparable to “murder.”
The Japan Times reported this February that “Scientists still don’t have all the information they need for a cleanup that the government estimates will take four decades….. It is not yet known if the fuel melted into or through the containment vessel’s concrete floor, and determining the fuel’s radioactivity and location is crucial to inventing the technology to remove the melted fuel.”
According to Dr. Shuzo Takemoto, a professor of Geophysics at Kyoto University, “The problem of Unit 2… If it should encounter a big earth tremor, it will be destroyed and scatter the remaining nuclear fuel and its debris, making the Tokyo metropolitan area uninhabitable. The Tokyo Olympics in 2020 will then be utterly out of the question.”
Groundwater from the mountains behind Fukushima gushes into the quake-smashed reactor foundations, pours over the melted fuel and becomes highly contaminated. This water then runs to the Pacific Ocean which is undergoing the largest radiation dump in recorded history."
~ DID YOU KNOW WE INTENTIONALLY DUMPED OVER 50,000 BARRELS OF NUCLEAR WASTE INTO THE OCEAN OFF CALIFORNIA?
Wall St. Journal, Dec. 31, 2013
WE CROSSED THE LINE...THERE IS NO FIX FOR FUKUSHIMA.
ABE, A MAN WITH SAMURAI LINEAGE, HAS FOUND A WAY TO REPAY THE WORLD FOR JAPAN'S DEFEAT, HIS GRANDFATHER'S 'DISHONOR' AND THE ATOMIC BOMBS... IT'S CALLED 'THE FUKUSHIMA DISASTER', BUT WHAT IT REALLY IS ...IT'S A SILENT NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST, A WAR...AND ABE HAS WON.
THAT HE WILL ALSO DIE DOESN'T MATTER TO HIM...THAT'S JUST 'THE CODE OF THE WARRIOR'... DEFEAT THE ENEMY AT ANY COST...
