– Fukushima ‘still a ticking time bomb’ (CNN June 21, 2011):
Michio Kaku – not only the radiation still leaking out, but “The truth keeps leaking out”.
CNN: Do they have control of the situation at that site?
Kaku: NO. It is still a ticking time bomb. Realize that after the big Sumatra tsunami, 90 days, 3 months after that there was a huge aftershock. If they have another aftershock, and they are not in cold shutdown yet until next year, the accident could start all over again. Its like hanging by your finger nails. Yeah, its stable but you are hanging by your finger nails.
CNN: Americans think this crisis is over, or some even think that it is solved or it is contained. Its not. What’s happening right now.
Kaku: In the last two weeks, everything we knew about that accident has been turned upside down. We were told three partial melt downs, don’t worry about it. Now we know it was 100 percent core melt in all three reactors. [We were told that the] Radiation minimal that was released. Now we know it was comparable to radiation at Chernobyl. And as far as evacuation, [we were told], 12 miles and that is it. You don’t have to evacuate more than 12 miles. Now they find hotspots, 4 hot spots, outside the evacuation zone. 34,000 school children now have radiation badges when they go to school.
CNN: Kindergarteners with radiation badges.
Kaku: Down to 4 years of age. Can you imagine that? Kindergarten kids with radiation badges going to school. So all of the mythology of the accident has been turned upside down because the utility has finally fessed up to how severe this accident really was.
CNN: In your view, did they not know how bad it was or they knew and didn’t tell, or they were just completely blown away by the scope of the disaster?
Kaku: I am a physicists and we try to reconstruct the actual accidents in our computers given the feeble amount of information they gave use. We knew it was much more severe than they were saying, because radiation was coming out left and right. So in other words, they lied to us. They knew how much radiation was coming out. The knew how much core meltdown was taking place. But they tried to put a happy face on it.
CNN: As a reported within hours of the earthquake and Tsunami, with hours not even a day, there were already statements from the company and International Atomic Energy Association saying there had been safe shut down of all reactors and we know now of course in the end that simply wasn’t true. But from the very beginning they were trying to tell us that this was a safe situation.
Kaku: Within hours of the accident we now know it was like the keystone cops. People that are clueless, headless, just running around crazy, not knowing what to do. We can now reconstruct that accident minute by minute, hour by hour and we can see this chaos that erupted in the leadership ability.
Don’t be fooled though, it is not as if CNN or any other corporate media outlet is doing any real journalism here. Everything discussed in this video is information directly released and admitted to by TEPCO and Japan.
Throughout this disaster all the media has done is echo statements from US and Japan government officials neglecting to do any real investigative journalism reporting stories that were so blatantly false and non-nonsensical because it was the official story coming from the Government when even the common laymen could see right through the lies.
So the media has lied to us to and they still are.
