Greenpeace Conducts First Fukushima Press Conference

Tyler Durden's picture

Environmental activists Greenpeace, who recently arrived in Japan, and whose "findings" the Japanese government advised should be avoided, have completed their first press conference. A recording is presented below. Nothing very surprising here: Greenpeace argues that while there is no substantial variation between its findings and those of the government, it has observed inactivity by the government in protecting its people. Greenpeace also observes that so far the peak activity occurred on March 15 (as can be seen on the following graphs) when a radioactive cloud was pushed inland due to prevailing winds, confirming once again that the health of local citizens is more reliant on meteorological condition than on government actions.

The meat of the presentation begins 10 minutes in.

Greenpeace. environmental activists or extremists?

Judge Judy Scheinlok's picture

They are on the ground in Japan taking real readings and releasing that info to the public.

What is the problem with that?

Harlequin001's picture

apparently they're not reliable.

Something to do with the whales I think...

I believe 'em...

jus_lite_reading's picture

Let's face it. Whales and everything in the ocean is screwed. Radiation coming out of Japan and into the sea is too high to be safe.


And now they are finding it everywhere!

zaknick's picture

Global warming, carbon tax, foyprint etc all just another iinstitution of control. When are you fuckers gonna realize that the TPTB are wildly corrupt and masters of Machiavellian manipulation.

Below my comment you will find the useful idiot who defends something he has done no due diligence on.

Useful idiots; what a nightmare.

Greenpeace data might prove problematic to "officials".

Japan Urges Calm On Its Farm Products At WTO

Japan expressed concern over recent moves to ban imports of certain Japanese farm products in the multilateral trade body's Trade Negotiations Committee, saying shipments of products possibly contaminated by radioactive materials have already been halted in Japan, and urging members to maintain free trade.

According to WTO rules, scientific evidence is required to ban imports of agricultural products on safety grounds.

yes, it doesn't matter if glow-in-the-dark-vegetable matter gets up and walks off of its own accord now does it?

Without the scientific stuff, who'd know there was anything wrong anyway...

Zina's picture

There's no difference between an American conservative who says the global warming is a "fraud" and the good old conservatives of the Flat Earth Society, who used to say that "a round Earth is a fraud".

Opposing scientific facts because of political convictions is not very smart... And there is PLENTY of scientific evidence of global warming, and PLENTY of evidence that it's being caused by the increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in atmosphere.

trav7777's picture

yes and there is also evidence of cooling due to aerosol contamination over the indian subcontinent and china. 

The AGW crowd wasn't helped by discovery of cherrypicked data either.

NotApplicable's picture

How about promoting politicized scientific facts because of political convictions?

How smart is that?

You really need to wake the fuck up and realize that politics is evil, as is your perpetration of it.

Anyone who engages in the war of lefty-righty is nothing but a tool of societal destruction. Worst still, is that you are a self-propelled tool, blindly serving your masters while believing you are following your own interests.

Meanwhile all you do is further the destruction by creating a mandate for their next machination.

johngaltfla's picture

Amen. And worse they are so clueless as to what they speak. I mean come on, blaming the earthquake on the SUV and the nuke problems on Bush.


Sheesh, that's so 2000's....

Oh regional Indian's picture

Greenpeace is a mouthpeace of special interests. Is all.

They are a manufactured opposition. Anybody so inclined should read what David Icke has to say about them. Spiral has it nailed below.

Strange thing is, on the ground, most Japanese are still in denial mode. Their conditioned mindset cannot wrap itself around the fact that the government is lying through it's teeth to them and that their fabled engineering is just so much show and no tell.

Truly, this is such a repeat of GOM, it boggles the mind. The truth will leak out in the end, but many lives and years later. Only, we don't have them, neither individually nor collectively.


ArgentDawn's picture

David Icke? Seriously? You are losing credibility fast..

Oh regional Indian's picture

Argent, it takes a little discrimination to seperate fact from fiction, ne? My credibility is not at stake here. He was their man in the UK for a good long while. While you may think i'm a moonbat on most matters, I can still tell you a thing or two about politics from having been in a hot-set for two years of my life at the highest level.

I also worked with Greenpeace India, they are quite a frightening bunch.

Don't throw the baby out with the Baath water. ;-0

At least they have guts to go in there and do something. I sent money to them. Now I'm greenpeace activist!! I don't believe word that comes from your type. Go back to Karl.

A sucker is born every day.

goldfish1's picture

Bring it on. So far they have demonstrated the willingness to publicize the issue which is more than the owners, the government or MSM is doing.

malikai's picture

Yes, they certainly know how well publicity keeps those donations coming.

Your shilling is a ringing endorsement. In other news:

Edano Suggests Scrapping Of All Reactors At Fukushima Daiichi Plant

TOKYO (Kyodo)--Top government spokesman Yukio Edano suggested Wednesday that all of the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant should be scrapped.

Gov't to spray resin over debris at Fukushima plant

TOKYO, March 30, Kyodo The government plans to spray a water-soluble resin over debris at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to prevent radiation leaks from spreading further, officials said Wednesday.

greyghost's picture

aren't they really just another bunch of clowns with no answers.....yet always yelling "fire"? did they bring hazmat suits for everyone or any at all, how about picks and shovels for clean up, food, water for those closest to the problem, did they fly in or do a beach landing up wind of the power plant? oh i know, since the japanese hunt whales they brought large fans to blow the radiation know, to teach the evil japanese a lesson!

goldfish1's picture

Some might paint the posters at ZH with the same brush.

grunk's picture

While they are in Japan, maybe the Greenpeacers could help clean up some debris from the earthquake and tsunami.

greenpeace. mouthpiece of climate lobby, maurice strong & david rockefeller. no crisis here.

TaxSlave's picture

About as informative as an OweBomba Peacewar speech.

themosmitsos's picture

FUCK greenpeace. They're just about the only group of assholes that can make me .... PRO Evil-Corporation

Fucking hippy douchebags

themosmitsos's picture

Although, on second thought, I DO hope they inspect the radiological emmissions ....... VERY up-close.

In fact, they should do humanity a favor: become guinea-pigs: What DOES happen to an asshole when exposed to lethal doses of radiation. Any GreenPeace volunteer will do

Harlequin001's picture

I dunno, I thought they did a pretty good job of saving the whales...

Let's face it we do still have whales... don't we...

Harlequin001's picture

your feet will never fit in them boots...

zhandax's picture

Tell me WHERE?  I have been pounding the counter at sushi bars across the nation demanding whale, and I get blank stares.......actually if you substitute cobia and wahoo for whale, this is true.

Golden monkey's picture

Thank God. Fucking a whale is better than fucking yourself.

Your whale doesn't like fucking? Well, that means your whale is enjoying life...

goldfish1's picture

I remember Greenpeace was the leading opposition to the building of Diablo Canyon. Many demonstrations by many went ignored.

goldfish1's picture

Your point?

In other news, the anti nuclear movement is increasing worldwide.


Bicycle Repairman's picture

My point is that between the 1970s and now GreenPeace has been co-opted.

I will not be surprised if the "anti-nuclear" groups turn out to be the same "global warming" groups that have been completely debunked.

trav7777's picture

Perhaps Greenpeace can suggest some way to keep the lights on.

malikai's picture

I think greenpeace's answer to that question is "die".

firstdivision's picture

Sorry, but I don't have sex with hippies.  They are not very well kept, unless you're down with the 70's bush look.

I miss the '70s bush look. A trip to the City swimming pool gave real meaning to "Junk in your Trunks"

“When I helped to create Greenpeace from a church basement in Vancouver in 1971 I had no idea that I would spend the next 15 years as an international director and leader of many Greenpeace campaigns. I also had no idea that after I left in 1986 they would evolve into a band of scientific illiterates who use Gestapo tactics to silence people who wish to express their views in a civilized forum.”

Patrick Moore, Ph.D.
Co-Founder of Greenpeace

Harlequin001's picture

I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with Gestapo tactics.

I fully support the efforts of the police and the Internal Revenue Service in their efforts to implement the Patriot Act and the Anti Terrorism Act, and to infiltrate and nail to the floor any filthy terrorist who might dare try and launder more than US$250 a month for 10 years in an offshore savings plan.

Nail the bastards, that's what I say...

+1  add centrally planned economy and 'from each according to his need and to each according to his want' as well ... /sarc

Patrick Moore:

'Although he spoke out against nuclear power in 1976,[37] today he supports it, along with renewable energy sources such as hydroelectric, geothermal, biomass, and wind.[26][38][39] In Australian newspaper The Age, he writes "Greenpeace is wrong — we must consider nuclear power"'

This guy should make up his mind.


Nuclear fission sucks,

as far as I am concerned for myself

(and the victims of Fukushima, especially!)

Fuchushima DAINI has SMOKE. 4 Reactors there. This is how Daichi started!!!!!!

Byte Me's picture

Seems Kyodo and TEPCO disagree.

T claim this is happening at Dai-ichi #1 Turbine hall.

As to which is correct -- flip a coin...........
