“Authorities believe the incident has no connection to Fukushima disaster, as the contaminated area is not large.”

Really?

(Authoriies “believe” = they don’t know jack shit … or … are lying to the public)

So Fukushima could have nothing to do with it?

Fukushima Fuel Rod Materials At 200 TRILLION Bq/Kg Found Near Tokyo … ‘Material Spread Globally’

Nuclear fuel found 15 miles from Tokyo suburbs — Fukushima uranium in ‘glassy’ spheres transported over 170 km — Structural materials from the nuclear reactors also present (PHOTOS)

Kids at risk: Extremely high soil radiation detected in Tokyo playground (RT, April 24, 2015):

A playground in Tokyo turned out to be contaminated with radiation levels that 2,000 times exceed the maximums permitted in areas adjoining the devastated Fukushima nuclear plant. Authorities fear some children have been exposed to radiation influence.

The administrative office of Toshima ward in northwest Tokyo reported that soil probes showed 480 microsieverts per hour. Two hours of exposure at such levels would equal one year’s maximum allowable dose of radiation. Continue reading »

Professors: 100s of Millions of animals have died recently along West Coast — Worst mortality event ever known — “Wiped out at least 20 different species” — Marine life also disappearing from Fukushima coast (VIDEO) (ENENews, April 22, 2015):

New Yorker, Apr 21, 2015 (emphasis added): [A]n ongoing outbreak of a sea-star wasting disease… has killed millions of starfish… It’s the greatest wildlife mass-mortality event, or “die-off,” of the present day… Online, speculation about the cause of the die-off soon focussed [sic] on radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear-power plant… [Pete Raimondi, principal investigator with a research group studying the disease] recalled a phone call in which a fearful soon-to-be father asked whether he should immediately move his family away from the West Coast. It was one of many similarly heartfelt calls. Researchers have found no evidence of a link between the ongoing Fukushima disaster and the starfish die-off,.. Many members of the public remain unconvinced… sea stars are known to be maritime canaries-in-the-coal-mine: “They’re always the first ones to go,” Raimondi said.

Santa Cruz Sentinel, Apr 6, 2015: [A] mysterious disease has melted millions of sea stars… This current epidemic has wiped out at least 20 different species of starfish, Raimondi said.

Dr. Ben Miner, Western Washington Univ., Jan 22, 2015 (35:45 in): “The numbers of stars that have died are probably — reasonable estimates of hundreds of millions. I think at this point most scientists are pretty comfortable saying that it’s the largest mass mortality ever associated with a disease ever recorded. [It’s] quite frightening… Patterns we initially saw and subsequent to that — and some other data — strongly suggests that it has nothing to do with Fukushima, though that was something that was very commonly reported in the media.” Continue reading »

“Trace levels”?

So they ‘evacuated’ the drone then (in order to protect it from the Fukushima radiation in Tokyo)?

Fukushima Fuel Rod Materials At 200 TRILLION Bq/Kg Found Near Tokyo … ‘Material Spread Globally’

Radioactive Japan: Contamination Detected In Tokyo Equal To Chernobyl Mandatory Evacuation Levels

Chief Nuclear Engineer Arnie Gundersen: Tokyo Soil Samples Would Be Considered Nuclear Waste In The US! (Video)

Evacuate Tokyo And All US Forces From Japan! (Veterans Today): ‘Tokyo Radiation Level 25 Times The Fukushima Mandatory Evacuation Zone’

And remember, radiation is “good for you” (but only in Japan):

Flashback:

And Now: Japanese Doctor Says ‘Radiation Is Good For You’, ‘Like An Angel’s Smile (Even At 50 Millisieverts/Year)’:

From now on, the number of cancer patients in Fukushima will decrease.

Food items with a small amount of radiation will fetch “premium”.

Fukushima Prefecture will be the Number One health land in Japan, and people will flock to Fukushima.

Our future is bright.


Tokyo-drone

Radioactive Drone Discovered On Roof Of Japanese PM’s Office (ZeroHedge, April 22, 2015):

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe awoke on Wednesday to find a half-meter-wide drone, contaminated with trace levels of radioactive cesium, on the roof of his office in Tokyo. Of course this is nothing new for Washington where a drone crash-landed on The White House lawn in January and Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said that Japan is looking to tighten laws governing drones (ahead of next year’s G7-summit and the 2020 Olympics). Of course, the police have explained cesium isn’t harmful to humans(though we suspect they aren’t stupid enough to drink it).

As The Wall Street Journal reports,

A drone was discovered on the roof of the Japanese prime minister’s office building Wednesday, and police said a tiny level of radiation was detected next to it. Continue reading »

TV: Nuclear waste spilling into Pacific Ocean after power outage hits Fukushima plant — Radiation Expert: Site is so radioactive and unstable “it may never be contained” (ENENews, April 21, 2015):

Kyodo News, Apr 21, 2015: Outage hits pumps at Fukushima plant; toxic water leaks into ocean – [Tepco] on Tuesday reported that a power outage has shut down all eight water transfer pumps… and that radioactive water is again leaking into the Pacific Ocean… The beleaguered utility said it was checking into what happened and how much water had leaked. The pumping had begun last Friday, in response to a finding in late February that highly radioactive water in the channel was reaching the ocean.

NHK, Apr 21, 2015: Radioactive water leaking into sea — [TEPCO] says radioactively contaminated rainwater is spilling outside the facility’s port after pumps to prevent leakage stopped working… The firm started operating the pumps last Friday. But on Tuesday, a worker found that they had stopped and the water was going into the sea. TEPCO officials say they don’t know the amount or radioactive level of the water. Continue reading »

Wall St Journal, Apr 20, 2015 (emphasis added):  Tepco to Abandon Second Robot Inside Fukushima Reactor… it has decided not to try to retrieve a second robot… citing radiation damage… [It] has now joined a previous robot which the utility also decided to leave there earlier this month… Tepco said one of the cameras used to monitor the second robot was damaged by the radiation. They decided to leave it inside to avoid the risk of it becoming stuck in a passageway…

NHK, Apr 20, 2015: The [first] robot was sent inside the vessel on April 10th but stopped working after advancing just 10 meters… TEPCO sent a second robot to retrieve the first robot. But the probe’s camera malfunctioned due to radiation exposure. The utility decided to abandon both robot probes. Continue reading »

Russia Dumped Radioactive Waste And Nuclear Reactors In Arctic Seas


Russian floating nuclear powerplant

–  1st mass-produced floating nuclear plant to power Russian Arctic in 2016 (RT, April 21, 2015):

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin says the first floating nuclear power plant built for use in the Arctic will be ready by October 2016.

“In fact, it’s a nuclear reactor that can be connected to any onshore infrastructure, so that it powers any Arctic city via cable,”Rogozin said, speaking to the participants of a planned youth Arctic expedition.

The floating reactors will be used to power port cities, industrial infrastructure, and oil and gas drilling rigs and refineries, which, according to Rogozin, will prove a great asset in Arctic exploration. Russian atomic agency Rosatom says 15 countries, including China, Algeria, Indonesia, Malaysia and Argentina, have shown interest in hiring such power plants for their own projects.

CBS: Worst may not be over from Fukushima — “Effects of radiation have become much more severe” — “Enormous decline” seen in animal species — “Striking drop-off… really dramatic impacts” due to nuclear disaster (VIDEO) (ENENews, April 17, 2015):

University of South Carolina, Apr 15, 2015 (emphasis added): Dwindling bird populations in Fukushima… as several recent papers from University of South Carolina biologist Tim Mousseau and colleagues show, the avian situation there is just getting worse… They recently published a paper in the Journal of Ornithology showing results from the first three years… Many populations were found to have diminished in number as a result of the accident, with several species suffering dramatic declines… What might be most disheartening to the researchers involved, and bird-lovers in general, is how the situation is progressing in Fukushima. Despite the decline in background radiation in the area over these past four years, the deleterious effects of the accident on birds are actually increasing.

Dr. Tim Mousseau, USC biologist: “The declines have been really dramatic… now we see this really striking drop-off in numbers of birds as well as numbers of species of birds. So both the biodiversity and the abundance are showing dramatic impacts in these areas with higher radiation levels, even as the levels are declining.” Continue reading »

Smoke rises from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex in this still image from video footage

LESS THAN ONE MINUTE OF VIDEO? (Jim Stone, April 14, 2015):

Three hours shot, less than ONE MINUTE from reactor 1 made public! Just perfect when the zio clan has a LOT TO HIDE, HERE IS MY RESPONSE:

We will NEVER get truthful robot footage from Fukushima BECAUSE:

ALL REACTORS WERE SABOTAGED, AND Reactor 3 was completely ejected from containment

This must be explained clearly so you know what is going on –

Approximately a year ago, a reactor engineer persistently contacted me to the point of being a pest, saying he had found reactor 3 laying in the debris from the explosion, completely out in the open and prominently showing. He had done a full investigation and knew exactly where it left the hole when it was blown out of the containment, where it was laying, EVERYTHING about the reactor and I did not pay attention because I did not believe it, and I could not obviously see it in the photos he sent.

“Contained?” Robot Dies 3 Hours After Entering Fukushima Reactor

We are sure this is nothing to worry about… and Japanese officials will re-iterate that everything is on track but when a snake-like robot sent to inspect a reactor containment vessel at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant dies three hours into the operation, one might wonder just how “contained” the radiation situations really is.

NHK ‘Nuclear Watch’ transcript, Mar 31, 2015 (emphasis added):

  • NHK: The people trying to decommission the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant have been hit by setback after setback… and faced accusations of misconduct. It’s lost them a lot of public trust… [Naohiro Masuda, president of Tepco’s decommissioning company] revealed he’s not sure if he can comply with the government set plan [for] removing the fuel…
  • Naohiro Masuda, president of Tepco’s Fukushima Daiichi Decommissioning Company: We have no idea about the debris. We don’t know its shape or strength. We have to remove it remotely from 30 meters above, but we don’t have that kind of technology, it simply doesn’t exist... We still don’t know whether it’s possible to fill the reactor containers with water. We’ve found some cracks and holes in the three damaged container vessels, but we don’t know if we found them all. If it turns out there are other holes, we might have to look for some other way to remove the debris.
  • NHK: Asked [about the gov’t target to begin by 2020], his answer was surprisingly candid.
  • Masuda: It’s a very big challenge. Honestly speaking, I cannot say it’s possible. Continue reading »

Top Scientists Warn Nuclear Bombs Deadlier Than Ever (Veterans Today, April 3, 2015):

By Steven Starr, Lynn Eden, and Theodore A. Postol

What would happen if just one 800-kiloton nuclear warhead was detonated above midtown Manhattan?

Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles are believed to carry a total of approximately 1,000 strategic nuclear warheads that can hit the US less than 30 minutes after being launched.

Of this total, about 700 warheads are rated at 800 kilotons; that is, each has the explosive power of 800,000 tons of TNT. What follows is a description of the consequences of the detonation of a single such warhead over midtown Manhattan, in the heart of New York City. Continue reading »

The Times of London, Mar. 27, 2015 (emphasis added): Japan faces 200-year wait for Fukushima clean-up — The chief of the Fukushima nuclear power station has admitted that the technology needed to decommission three melted-down reactors does not exist, and he has no idea how it will be developed. In a stark reminder of the challenge facing the Japanese authorities, Akira Ono conceded that the stated goal of decommissioning the plant by 2051 may be impossible without a giant technological leap. “There are so many uncertainties involved. We need to develop many, many technologies,” Mr Ono said. “For removal of the debris, we don’t have accurate information (about the state of the reactors) or any viable methodology… [The rest of the article is only available to Times’ subscribers] Continue reading »

Expert: Plutonium-241 from Fukushima nearly 70,000 times more than atomic bomb fallout in Japan — Gov’t Labs: Large areas of oceans contaminated by plutonium from events such as Fukushima; Build-up in biosphere expected; Considerable hazard to humans — Officials: Molten fuel now ‘particle-like’, contains ‘special’ nuclear materials (ENENews, March 25, 2015):

Taeko Shinonaga, head of Radioanalytical Laboratory at Helmholtz Zentrum Munchen (research institution founded jointly by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education & Research and Bavaria’s Finance Ministry), scientists from Technische Universitat Munchen (Germany), Verhandlungen der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesellschaft 2013 meeting (emphasis added): Detection of long-lived plutonium isotopes in environmental samples by Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS)Plutonium isotopes 239Pu, 240Pu and 242Pu are anthropogenic radionuclides emitted into the environment by nuclear activities. Pu is accumulated in the human body and hence, poses a considerable hazard to human health. Due to the long half-lives, these isotopes are present in the biosphere on large time scales and a build-up can be expected. Therefore it is important to study the contamination pathway of Pu into the drinking water… a method to detect long-lived Pu isotopes by Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) is being developed. AMS requires only few milligrams of sample material… Consequently, more samples from different locations can be taken which is essential when searching for locally increased Pu concentrations as in the Pacific Ocean after the Fukushima accident… Samples from different locations in the Pacific Ocean and from the snow-hydrosphere are planned… Continue reading »

Putin Warns “We Were Ready” To Use Nukes To Secure Crimea (ZeroHedge, March 16, 2015):

Having re-emerged from his hibernation, Vladimir Putin is wasting no time getting back to business. Having paced 40,000 troops on “snap-readiness,” AP reports that a documentary which aired last night shows Putin explaining that Russia was ready to bring its nuclear weapons into a state of alert during last year’s tensions over the Crimean Peninsula and the overthrow of Ukraine’s president, and admitted well-armed forces in unmarked uniforms who took control of Ukrainian military facilities in Crimea were Russian soldiers. In the documentary, which marks a year since the referendum, Putin says of the nuclear preparedness, “We were ready to do this … (Crimea) is our historical territory. Russian people live there. They were in danger. We cannot abandon them.” Continue reading »

Nuclear Hotseat hosted by Libbe HaLevy, Mar 10, 2015 (emphasis added): Translated interview with Prof. Hiroaki Koide, Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute (at 31:30 in) – “Because of the radiation dispersed due to the accident a large area of Japan… has been contaminated… It looks like the national government is simply going to abandon these people. Moreover, surrounding the 386 square mile evacuation zone where these people live, there is a 5,400 square mile [14,000 square kilometer] area that is heavily contaminated. If Japan were a country under the rule of law, this would be a restricted access area where people should not be allowed to live due to radiation. The several million people who live there have been cast aside and told if you want to leave, go ahead and do it on your own. The government feigns ignorance. These millions of people, including children and infants, go about their daily lives in this area being exposed to radiation as if there’s no problem at all… I think this is very bizarre. Additionally there has been no resolution at the accident site… from my vantage point, the accident is not under control at all.” Continue reading »
