Preface: we’ve written thousands of articles on Fukushima and radiation. But this post will spotlight recent articles from EneNews … with which we have no affiliation of any nature whatsoever.

The American media hasn't covered Fukushima for a long time. But that doesn't mean there hasn't been any news. It just means that the  U.S. and Japanese governments have worked hard to cover it up.

Here’s a roundup of recent news (links to EneNews; click through to see original source material ... that's how the web WORKS):

Radiation

Coincidental Wildlife Death and Injury?

Impacts On Human Health?

GW - good stuff, thanks for taking time to do something on Fuku given all the other news competing for bandwidth!

I don't know where that report from Alaska came from, but I've been here in SE Alaska for the last 5 months and the king salmon and coho runs have been spectacularly good with fishermen bringing in a bumper catch. I personally have probably handled several hundred fish this season and haven't seen one abnormality, and not one of the 20 salmon trollers or half dozen fish buyers/tenders that I speak to on an almost daily basis has said one thing about seeing an abnormal fish. I know Fukushima is a complete clusterfuck but the report about the salmon seems like complete bullshit from my observations.

If dust storms from Northern China can reach SF Bay Area (in last two winters), why not radiation clouds from Fuku (on the same route)? "Scientists" shall pull their heads out of cold pacific ocean, most of radiations are airborne, riding Pacific Jet Streams (trade wind?) into Bay Area. Testing sea water just 'bark the wrong tree'.

This is not over.  In fact it's barely begun.  How many multiples of Pacific background radiation (including all the prior nuclear testing and Chernobyl fallout) are 'safe'?  Because the effects of Fukushima will be measured in that background doubling....or tripling....or.....who knows.  And no one is AT ALL interested in concentration mechanisms, including bioaccumulation.  There is no upper limit to cesium bioaccumulation.....as anyone who bothers to read the peer-reviewed science would know.

There is a lot more where that came from.

Each US spent fuel pool contains at least a couple times more long-lived radionuclides than was released by all atmospheric nuclear weapon tests combined.  And the pools are all located *outside* primary containment.

Slightly more than one gram of cesium-137, made into an aerosol and distributed evenly over a square mile, will make that square mile uninhabitable for more than a century.  Most US spent fue pools have a million or more grams of cesium-137 within them.

A single EMP over the US East Coast would cause dozens of US reactors to melt down, and their fuel pools to boil-off to the point where the rods would be exposed, overheat, rupture and possibly ignite. 

But remember, nuclear power is safe and clean.

I was like that...when I was twelve years old and a kindly old tutor taught me nuclear physics.  I thought it was totally awesome, and it is.  It's just that pesky radiation.....which I figured out when I was fourteen.  Oh well.

That fuel cycle should never have been taken out of the ground.

Here is a good video presentation... a bit on the long side and repetitive for his radio audience.

Basically he is showing you what was once Pristine Sea Coast that was teaming with life... now it looks like what you might find anywhere close to Industrial Sites. Canadian Park Land, sea coast line, protected by outer islands, but enjoys the crashing of the ocean & tides that bring Oxygen.

He is Life Time Diver & Visitor to the area, looks like he is disabled in Wheel Chair and had Buddy take the pictures of current conditions.

He says life is barely hanging on. You see a few snails, a few Muscles, Whelps, Purple Star Fish, Lettuce Kelp, Kelp weed, a few barnacles, and that is it. This was done at low tide when there should have been 100s of kinds of life. You see remnants or remains of shell fish.

Shocked by the Trip. All the Sea Anemones are gone. All the insects are gone. All the birds are gone. No Kelp Forests. Tidal Pools are empty. Mud Flats Empty. No Crabs. No Limpets. This is what remains of the Nursery of the Ocean, the Tide Line.

600 species of algae gone, No 94 species of Sponges. Many species of Star fish reduced to just one. 60-70 Species of Sea Anemones are missing.

While we didn't scuba while there, we were on the coast of Vancouver Island and traveled down to the coast off Portland, OR a three weeks ago and everything we saw looked good.  Plenty of seals, birds and the tides revealed a bevy of life.  I'm not discounting this man's experience - and I'm not a marine biologist - just sharing what we saw.

The notion that Fukishima has opened the gates of Hell is to not understand what Hell is.

But what if the radiation causes some little sea horse or lizard to become GODZILLA!  ROAR!  STOMP!  STOMP!

Japanese movie-goers love their sea monsters... must be very exciting for them.  You know, the anticipation... the waiting... any minute now, out there, beyond the shore... OH MY GOD!!!!!

Well... fukushima isn't necessary related to these animals deaths, but it would certainly be nice to see the govt test for the byproducts of fukushima (cesium and strontium).

For those who don't get the joke ...

One of the main advisors to the Japanese government on Fukushima announced:

If you smile, the radiation will not affect you. If you do not smile, the radiation will affect you.

This theory has been proven by experiments on animals.

no matter what, it's def not complete bullshit - are you insane, ignorant, a troll, or a combination thereof?

Do you understand that this isn't like air pollution - it's cumulative, and the radioactivity gets worse and worse and starts crossing tipping points all along the food chain, as well as as to organic matter?

Happy reading dead man walking...

(PS, you are not alone, fraid we've screwed the pooch on this one, and unless the geniuses who bought us this catastrophic contamination of the THE VERY SAME ENVELOPE that protects us from space radiation, or others or ETs, come up with a way to resequester the DNA-destructive hyper-charge of these small particles, there's not long left. Bonus read: Atomic Suicide by Walter and Lao Russel, and The Secrets of Light. The Good book and/or the Original Koran may also be useful for the 'End Game'. )

 

Atomic Suicide

PPS, must see for the impossible task of safely and permanently disposing of spent nuclear fuel at Onkalo Deep Underground Repository, some 250,000 tonnes of which are in open pools around the planet. Called 'Into Eternity', it's a truly stunning (as in silencing and numbing) film by Micheal Masden about the coffin we've turned the planet into. See this, then come back and discuss your fate. Been following what's going on at WIPP, and Hanford?:

Its one thing to.be irradiated, quite another to injest radioactive contamination.

That irradiated fruit is fine. Id eat it. Its no more contaminated than you are by an xray.

Now if it came from a garden 10 miles.downwind of Fukushima, then yeah, its contaminated shit.

the excuse that we don't know what is causing this, we are baffled, etc etc are disgusting lies. we know precisely what is causing the problem - it is fukushima.

of course the real story is that fukushima was a man made disaster caused by the bush crime syndicate and ziocon nazis were caused the tsunami because of japan's drifting away from the us dollar and military hegemony....the rothschild satanists are the mass murderers, the vials of wrath of revelation.

In response to "The answer is 42" posting. (love the 42 reference btw)

Hmmm,

So I read this FAQ.

It sounds quite reasonable. But...

1)he does not address the cumulative effect of the radiation in the food chain

2) he only talks about ceissium and iodine [mentioning the other particles only in passing]

3) indicates the comtamination is on site while it has been stated and acknowledge that particles from Fukashima have been found around the world

4) his description of the radioactive plume is much smaller and benign than what has been displayed on other maps.

He words seem solid but the whole article seems rather shallow.

If you can't see it then it's not a story.  And they have plenty of lies and alternate news stories to dilute the subject. Doesn't mean it's any less important they just don't need anything (else) disrupting this massive economic recovery that we are in at the expense of quadrillions.
