ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), Matthew Carney, Mar. 10, 2014: A nuclear industry insider has told the ABC that the situation at the stricken Fukushima reactor is still not under control [...] At the risk of losing his job if his identity is revealed, a senior TEPCO staffer, who has worked at the Fukushima plant for more than 20 years, says the situation at the reactor is not under control and no-one knows how to fix the problem. [...] The whistleblower says mistakes are made weekly, and contaminated water leaks into the Pacific Ocean every day. [...] The insider says the damaged reactors can never be decontaminated and that people should not be moved back into the no-go zone, a 20-kilometre exclusion area around Fukushima.
- “Truly an operational nightmare” at WIPP — Radiation level doubles at location far from leak; Carlsbad monitor jumps around 40% — Residents plead for more info, concerns over safety (MAP) (ENENews, March 9, 2014):
KRQE, Mar. 6, 2014: Many left Thursday night’s meeting with the Department of Energy uneasy. They pleaded for more information about the underground radiation leak last month that seeped outside, but many remain frustrated and concerned for their safety. The DOE tried to reassure people they are safe even though the underground storage areas remained sealed off.
U.S. Congressman Steve Pearce, Mar. 8, 2014: I Will Ask Tough Questions About Radiation Leak — “I will hold their feet to the fire. In my meetings with Secretary Moniz, and in my conversations with top officials at the Department of Energy, I have strongly voiced New Mexicans’ concerns about the lack of information about WIPP.”
- The children of Japan’s Fukushima battle an invisible enemy (Reuters, March 10, 2014):
Some of the smallest children in Koriyama, a short drive from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, barely know what it’s like to play outside – fear of radiation has kept them indoors for much of their short lives.
Though the strict safety limits for outdoor activity set after multiple meltdowns at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in 2011 have now been eased, parental worries and ingrained habit mean many children still stay inside.
And the impact, three years on, is now starting to show, with children experiencing falling strength, lack of coordination – some cannot even ride a bicycle – and emotional issues like shorter tempers, officials and educators say.

The disgusting images of face-mask-wearing Chinese going about their daily business in minimal visibility and lung-busting conditions are strewen across the interwebs. However, even fake sun-rises pale into significance when the full dismal reality of China’s pollution problem is put in context. Perhaps the following chart is why China’s latest round of reforms appear to ‘declare war on pollution’.
And it seems that has finally tipped the Chinese over the edge to do something about it… (via Charles Kennedy via OilPrice.com)
On March 5th China’s Premier Li Keqiang declared war on pollution, outlining significant steps the Chinese government will take to improve air quality. China has suffered from truly epic smog over the last two winters, choking its cities’ inhabitants and cutting off visibility. The pollutants in the air have surpassed hazardous levels, at times jumping beyond the index that measures particulate matter. Continue reading »
- Fukushima: A River Runs Through It (Veterans Today, March 8, 2014):
This is Not the Movie Version
(San Francisco) – Robert Redford and Brad Pitt along with other top notch actors made a superb movie named “A River Runs Through It” in 1992. The movie was from a story set in the American West by Norman Maclean.
This is not that story, however. This a story of an ongoing, grimy industrial disaster that destroyed any hope of continued life on Earth. We have seen it come to pass in our lifetimes. People mostly stood by and did nothing. There is nothing we can do about it now, it is a done deal and is now called an “Extinction Level Event.”
Very low levels of radiation, huh? Sure! Just look at what what is happening to sea life in the Pacific. (Links are provided down below.)
Here’s what you’ll never hear in the mainstream media:
... and there are ’1,946 known lethal radioactive isotopes’ created by atomic reactors.
As a side note:
If you give rats a LD1 (Lethal dose killing 1% of the rats) of mercury … 1% of the rats will die.
If you give rats a LD1 (Lethal dose killing 1% of the rats) of lead … 1% of the rats will die.
How many rats will die if you give them a LD1 of mercury AND a LD1 of lead?
Take a guess!
Answer: ALL OF THEM!!!
Again, there are ’1,946 known lethal radioactive isotopes’ from Fukushima.
How will they affect us?
Take a guess!
Three thousand billion (3,000,000,000,000) Lethal Doses of Radiation means there are 429 Lethal Doses chasing each and every one of us on the planet, to put it in a nutshell.
Another thing MSM is forgetting to tell you about are ‘buckyballs’:

“If you don’t educate yourself now and fast, you’ll die.”
- Prof. Hayakawa of Gunma University
“You’ve bought the propaganda from the nuclear industry. They say it’s low-level radiation. That’s absolute rubbish. If you inhale a millionth of a gram of plutonium, the surrounding cells receive a very, very high dose. Most die within that area, because it’s an alpha emitter. The cells on the periphery remain viable. They mutate, and the regulatory genes are damaged. Years later, that person develops cancer. Now, that’s true for radioactive iodine, that goes to the thyroid; cesium-137, that goes to the brain and muscles; strontium-90 goes to bone, causing bone cancer and leukemia. It’s imperative … that you understand internal emitters and radiation, and it’s not low level to the cells that are exposed. Radiobiology is imperative to understand these days.”

- Scientists: Test West Coast for Fukushima radiation (USA Today, March 9, 2014):
Very low levels of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster likely will reach ocean waters along the U.S. West Coast next month, scientists are reporting.
- Fukushima Radiation To Reach West Coast Next Month (ZeroHedge, March 9, 2013):
Over the past three years there has been endless debate over whether the Fukushima radioactive fallout is hitting the US west coast, or if, as the media spin would have it, it is largely isolated, and best to just take their word for it for the simple reason that no federal agency currently samples Pacific Coast seawater for radiation. The answer may finally be in sight, and it is not a pleasant one: USA Today reports that “very low levels of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster likely will reach ocean waters along the U.S. West Coast next month, scientists are reporting. Current models predict that the radiation will be at extremely low levels that won’t harm humans or the environment, said Ken Buesseler, a chemical oceanographer at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who presented research on the issue last week.
Hopefully these “models” are better at forecasting than the Fed’s (which are operated by three supercomputers), and the definition of “minimum” hasn’t undergone the same material revisions as did “maximum” in the context of the maximum permitted radiation dose falling on Tepco workers in the days when Japan desperately was lying every day about the magnitude of the radioactive disaster. Obviously, it is one thing to make up predictions for the sake of avoiding a panic, it is something entirely different to have empirical data: “I’m not trying to be alarmist,” Buesseler said. “We can make predictions, we can do models. But unless you have results, how will we know it’s safe?” Continue reading »
How can you watch your 11-year-old son throwing up 30 to 40 times a day without taking appropriate action, when you know radiation levels are sky high???
All these soldiers and their families need immediate help from somebody who knows about how to detox the human body from radiation.
(Don’t expect much help from western medicine and your government.)
- U.S. Navy Officer: Radiation levels routinely exceeded 300 times normal for over a month far away from Fukushima, “yet I was given only gloves!” — My son was throwing up 30 to 40 times some days — “This basically ruined my life” (VIDEO) (ENENews, March 8, 2014):
Huffington Post, Mar. 7, 2014: Mike Sebourn served at a U.S. Navy base in Japan after the Fukushima nuclear meltdown, measuring radiation and decontaminating aircraft. [21-year-old] Nathan Piekutowski spent the days after the disaster with the Marine Corps, passing out water to survivors near the stricken power plant. [...] Sebourn has lost 60 percent of the strength on the right side of his body. Piekutowski faces a long recovery from [leukemia and] a recent bone marrow transplant. [...] more than 100 U.S. military personnel who responded to Fukushima have reported health problems [...] Sebourn said his son, now 11, who lived at the same Japan base, became acutely ill during those months — throwing up as many as 30 to 40 times a day. [...] Without a recognized service connection for their illnesses, many sailors and soldiers are struggling [...] Some, including Sebourn and Piekutowski, are no longer healthy enough to work. [...] experts and advocates said they were convinced of radiation’s potential role [...] [Physician Dr. John Rachow and others] said they lack confidence in the published estimates [...]
David Brenner, director of Columbia’s Center for Radiological Research: “All the doses are indeed very low, and the chances that these radiation exposures could lead to a cancer are very small indeed. [No exposure to radiation is risk-free] Rather, the risk is very low.”
Dr. Rachow: “You get the sense that there’s this systematic minimization of the risk. [...] What do you do when sailors come forward who have unusual, unexpected illnesses for their age and physical condition? It’s in the interest of the Navy to say, ‘It’s not related. There’s no proof.’”
Mike Sebourn, U.S. Navy officer: “My exposure was continuous. [Radiation levels routinely read 300 to 400 times the amount naturally found... more than a month after the disaster, and more than 100 miles from Fukushima] I put in a claim for radiation exposure and it came back completely denied. [...] All I want is to be seen and figure out what is wrong with me. And I want to make sure I’m here for my son years down the road.”
More from Sebourn: “This has destroyed my marriage, basically ruined my life. The detector in my hand read a level over four times that requiring a full mylar suit and respirator–yet I was given only gloves!”

NBC Los Angeles, Mar. 6, 2014: California Researchers Embark on “Kelp Watch 2014″ — Experts say contamination levels won’t be high enough to harm humans but can’t say the same for the ecosystem kelp supports [...] CSULB Professor Dr. Steven Manley said [...] he does not not believe the contamination levels expected in the kelp will be high enough to be harmful to humans, but he couldn’t say the same for the ecosystem the kelp supports. “The levels we project we’re going to see in kelp are going to be quite low,” he said. “But the effects on simpler forms of wildlife we don’t know. Whatever is in the kelp will get into the bodies of those animals also.” [...] “It can serve as a warning that these materials that get released thousands of miles away can find a way across the oceans,” Manley said of the kelp.

- New Studies on Mystery ‘Black Substances’ Released: Fuel core materials from Fukushima plant detected — Plutonium, Uranium-236, Curium discharged into environment likely in form of fine particles (PHOTO) (ENENews, March 7,2 014):
Environmental Science & Technology (ACS Publications), March 6, 2014: Isotopic compositions of 236U and Pu isotopes in “Black Substances” collected from roadsides in Fukushima Prefecture: fallout from the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident — Black colored road dusts were collected in high radiation areas in Fukushima Prefecture. Measurement of 236U and Pu isotopes and 134,137Cs in samples was performed in order to confirm whether refractory elements such as U and Pu from the fuel core were discharged [...] The concentrations of 134,137Cs in all samples were exceptionally high, ranging from 0.43 to 17.7 MBq/kg, respectively. 239+240Pu was detected at low levels, ranging from 0.18 to 1.14 Bq/kg and with high 238Pu/239+240Pu activity ratios of 1.64 to 2.64. 236U was successfully determined in the range 0.28 to 6.74 x10^-4 Bq/kg. The observed activity ratios for 236U/239+240Pu were in reasonable agreement with those calculated for the fuel core inventories, indicating that trace amounts of U from the fuel cores were released together with Pu isotopes, but without large fractionation. The quantities of U and 239+240Pu, emitted to the atmosphere were estimated as 2.3×10^9 Bq (150 g) and 3.9×10^6 Bq (580 mg), respectively. [...] fractionation between volatile and refractory radionuclides associated with the dispersal/deposition processes with distance from the [FDNPP] was found.
Located near Carlsbad, New Mexico this Department of Energy (DOE) experimental nuclear waste dump is attempting to store leftover radioactive plutonium and americium from the US weapons program.

In this film Fairewinds Energy Education’s Arnie Gundersen pieces together what happened and points out Fairewinds’ major concerns about the facility, the accident and the lack of transparency at the DOE.
- ‘Imminent Situation’ At U.S. Nuclear Site – Emergency Operations Center Evacuated Due To Fire Deep Underground – ‘One Of Most Serious Incidents’ On Record – Anonymous Footage Of Thick Black Smoke Coming From Ground
- Apocalypse Now – Fukushima (Veterans Today, March 6, 2014):
As Harvey Wasserman expounds ~ Fukushima’s missing melted cores and gushing radioactivity continues to fester in secret and speculation on the ultimate impact borders from relatively harmless to intensely apocalyptic. However, it is obvious to all that the impacts of these emissions on human and ecological health are unknown primarily because the nuclear industry has resolutely refused to study them:
As Wasserman explains ~ ” This “see no evil, pay no damages” mindset dates from the Bombing of Hiroshima to Fukushima to the disaster coming next … which could be happening as you read this “ so here are some major points to consider as you determine , as I do, that this is indeed Apocalypse Now (courtesy of Harvey Wasserman)
1. At Hiroshima and Nagasaki (1945), the U.S. military initially denied that there was any radioactive fallout, or that it could do any damage. Despite an absence of meaningful data, the victims (including a group of U.S. prisoners of war) and their supporters were officially “discredited” and scorned
2. During and after the Bomb Tests (1946-63), down winders in the South Pacific and American west, along with thousands of U.S. “atomic vets,” were told their radiation-induced health problems were imaginary … until they proved utterly irrefutable. Continue reading »

- “WIPP release story doesn’t add up… accident is unbelievable” — New tests show “high level” release underground — “Contains things far more radioactive than High Level Waste” — “I want to hear what really happened down there” (VIDEO) (ENENews, March 6, 2014):
Carlsbad Environmental Monitoring & Research Center, Mar. 5, 2014 (emphasis added): Station A (pre-HEPA) in the morning following the event (2/15/14) showed high levels of radioactivity consisting of 1,365 Bq/m3 of Americium (241Am) and 672 Bq/m3 of Plutonium (239+240Pu). Twenty-four hours following the event (11:30pm Saturday 2/15/14), another filter sample showed much lower levels of radioactivity, measuring 130 Bq/m3 of 241Am and 17 Bq/m3 of 239+240Pu. [...] It is important to note that while very high levels of radioactivity were measured immediately following the 2/14/14 radiation detection event, these values are reflective of what was measured prior to going through the HEPA filtration system [...] Station B (post-HEPA) in the afternoon of Tuesday (2/18/14). Analysis of this filter showed a moderate amount of radioactivity measuring 1.81 Bq/m3 of 241Am and 0.224 Bq/m3 of 239+240Pu. [...] it is evident that a moderate amount of radioactive isotopes were released into the air from the WIPP exhaust shaft [...] CEMRC scientists are preparing to collect soil and surface water samples [...]

Interview with WIPP expert Don Hancock of Southwest Research and Information Center, Nuclear Hotseat with Libbe HaLevy, Feb. 25, 2014 (at 22:30 in):
- Don Hancock, Southwest Research and Information Center: We don’t know how far away [contamination has] gone. That’s one of the questions that needs to be figured out.
- Libbe HaLevy, host: What, if any, signs are there that the leak is ongoing?
- Hancock: They still have amounts of radiation that they’re reading in the underground at WIPP. The DoE is saying that the filter system is 99.97% effective. We don’t know that that’s true because we don’t have laboratory results back, how much radioactivity those filters are actually catching. We are a long way from having all the sampling we need in the above ground to know how much is out. We can presume that minute amounts can still be coming out through the filter system even if the filter system is working perfectly. The filter system doesn’t work 100% perfect — 99.97%, if it is working that well is good, but that means there’s 0.03% that is getting out. So it will be a continuing problem until all of the contamination, both underground and above ground is cleaned up. [...] It’s a continuing potential threat to people for a long time to come.

Interview with Kenichi Hasegawa, farmer from Iitate village, Fukushima Prefecture, Greenpeace Canada, Mar. 3, 2014 (at 4:15 in):
- They gathered residents in […] a very highly radioactive place. After these ‘radiation safe’ lectures, the mayor of Iitate Village came and directly thanked the lecturers in front of the village people. This kind of thing repeated again and again. [...] the mayor himself evacuated his own children to other areas. I think this is a significant crime. […] children can’t run away by themselves. And these lecturers reassured the parents to stay here, and so the children stayed too. So I think what the mayor did is a crime. […] Mr. Yamashita he was really terrible, because he said what the government is saying is right, you have to believe them because you are the people — you are the nation. And also he said, “I’m a doctor and I’m a scientist and I have data backing me up. That’s why you need to believe […] The radiation, it likes negative people.”

RIA Novosti, Jun 15, 2011: Ocean currents ultimately carry this radioactive material to N. America
Jeff Feldner, Oregon Sea Grant Extension (NOAA) fisheries specialist (at 2:30 in): It’s probable that, for one thing, a lot of the larger animals got out of there quickly. The other thing is that I suspect animals, like whales for instance, I think they would probably be able to tell that something was wrong. They’re very, very intelligent animals. They’re not going to just wait until they start to die off. I think they’re probably likely going to voluntarily gotten out of the area.
Radioactive material has been flowing into the Pacific since the Fukushima disaster began 3 years ago. Scientists say its leading edge made it across the ocean by Summer 2013. Soon after, reports began to appear about unprecedented concentrations of large marine animals congregating close to shore along the west coast:

As reported by CNN, a nurse in the area, Sara Barron, was the first to report on a particularly horrifying condition: anencephaly — a condition in which babies are born without much of their brain and skull.
“I was just stunned,” she told the network in an interview. “Three in a couple-of-month period of time… that’s unheard of, and they have such tragic, terrible outcomes.”
Her shocking finding and report eventually prompted an investigation by the state health department. Investigators found some disturbing results.

Enough to Kill 35,500 People Released so Far
(San Francisco) – Feb 28, 2014 – Carlsbad, New Mexico is the site of the nation’s only nuclear weapons program garbage dump. Plutonium is used in making The Bomb, it melts at 640 Deg C or 1,184 Deg F, and is made in reactors. It is not mined anywhere on Earth. Reactors exist to make Bombs.
The Carlsbad Bomb making garbage dump is on fire. The burning radioactive metal does not go away, it turns to dense black radioactive smoke. The black smoke is very obvious in the daytime and it streamed from several ventilator shafts during a fire at the dump two weeks ago.
The shafts were then closed and the visible smoke kept underground. Plutonium does not need oxygen to burn and escaped anyway. The HEPA filters are not good enough to contain the very small Plutonium particles; that’s because nothing is. The fire very well could still be burning Plutonium and Uranium in the salt mine.

[...] In 2011 a deadly earthquake followed by a tsunami killed 15,000 people and caused Fukushima power plant nuclear reactor to melt down. We stood in Tokyo, as they said “There is no meltdown, this is not happening”– as steam rose from the place. They allowed workers to continue, they allowed residents to stay — and said, “No, there’s no nuclear meltdown, it’s okay.” It’s now reached the shores of North America. What a fantastical incredible lie that we knew at the time we were getting, and simply could not prove.

- The nuclear waste processing facility near Hanford, Washington (RT, March 1, 2014):
“Significant construction flaws” have been found in at least 6 of the 28 double shelled radioactive waste storage tanks at the Hanford nuclear waste complex in Washington State, which may lead to additional leaks, documents obtained by the AP say.
After one of the 28 huge underground double shelled tanks was found to be leaking in 2012, subsequent surveys performed for the US Department of Energy by one of its Hanford contractors found that at least six of the other tanks shared the same defects, according to the documents. A further 13 tanks may also be compromised, the inspectors found.

Seattle Times, Feb. 28, 2014 (emphasis added): ‘Serious problem’: 65-foot crack found in Columbia River dam — A massive crack in a major Columbia River dam poses enough of a risk of dam failure that Grant County authorities have activated an emergency-response plan. [...] “At this point we already know there’s a serious problem,” said Thomas Stredwick, spokesman for the Grant County Public Utility District (PUD). “We want to make sure the spillway is stable enough that inspectors are safe when inspecting it. [...] This is a situation that’s really changing as more information becomes available” [...]
Seattle Times, Feb. 28, 2014: There’s no immediate threat to public safety from the crack in the Wanapum Dam [...] Stredwick said [...] officials analyzed the divers’ data and decided Friday that the failure risk was sufficiently high that they should notify other government agencies [...]
Columbia Basin Herald, Mar. 1, 2014: [T]his large of a crack has never been found on a Grant PUD dam. [...] engineers noticed something unusual on the water level [...] the crack, which spans the entire length of the dam, had formed about 70 feet under water.
