For people in Japan hopefully - they need to get transitory and move the hell out of the area. TEPCO is like the bad jelly of the month club that keeps on giving

I thought they fixed that and everything was all better.

According to Doug Cass...Japan, as a result of the disaster,  "is the buying opportunity of a generation."   At the time he made the call, he vaguely suggested, as all have, that Fukushima was under control.

Cass is a complete moron. Make's me cringe to even type his worthless name.

Based on MSM coverage, we're not supposed to remember it of course.  Nuclear disaster?  What?!  Nah, that's OLD news...  The masses moved on to a new circus long ago.

This is because the corium is melted into the concrete.  If they get near any vent that comes close to that, it's going to be insane radiation, although it may be decreased in other areas since the corium is partially encased in Concrete now by virtue of it melting through to it.

By now, radiosilver production is picking up inside the corium. In a few years they could put a mine in and start producing bars like the eastern Europeans were doing. The remains of the fallout also has traces of radiosilver, as found by Korea back in April. People just aren't looking at the bright side of all this.

Swan Lake- Japan

The Whiteness descended onto Japan in true Black Swan fashion.  Only nature knew what lay in waiting for the poor island of Nippon.  An island steeped in ritual and history, it was to be utterly destroyed in a few blinks of an eye.  Now, it lays in ruins.

Unfortunately because of society the loss has only begun....

I heard this story in Fukushima the other day. Informed parents tell their children, "Don't eat shiitake mushroom or bamboo shoot in the school lunch." So, the children take them aside. But then the teacher comes and orders them, "Eat!"

The current rad levels we receive in the USA right now are about half what most of us grew up with due to atmospheric nuclear testing in the 40's and 50's, which has decayed since (mostly).  We're down to radon from the uranium in the ground, and cosmic rays, which no one can avoid unless they live in a mine.  Japan near the reactor, now that's a bad place to be right now.  On the scale of the earth, not so bad anyplace else, and not likely to get worse anytime soon.  Now, if someone planted a large bomb there and blew all that crap up into the air, that'd be slightly more scary, but I kinda doubt that.

Please inform yourself before spouting this bare nonsense?

The amount of radiation from Fukushima is estimated to be 20 times that of Hiroshima according to Professor Tatsuhiko Kodama of Tokyo University.

Also, it is cumulative, and this does not include the very difficult measurement of hot particles (alpha radiation). Please see the video in my post below?

Yes, the radiation of Fukushima hit the jetstream, and was (and still is) deposited on the western US and Canadian coast. Also, the northern Pacific Ocean is fucked. Slowly these hot particles will spread throughout the Northern Hemisphere, and then all over the planet. Just like they've already permeated most of Japan and it's surroundings.

Extend and pretend doesn't really work if your offspring doesn't have healthy genes. You can agree or disagree with that, it's all the same to me. What matters is that it's time, finally to regard the true impact of fission nuclear in the hands of madmen and stop it, before another plant (in the US) blows up. The risk is not imagnary: you don't need a terrorist with a bomb, you got your government and the NRC who are setting you up right now.

Did you read anything the guy wrote? Care to look at the bigger picture?

Mon, 08/01/2011 - 16:41 | 1514325 Reptil
Reptil's picture

Of course I did. I am looking at the bigger picture: It says fission nuclear is creating more problems than we can solve. It also says that commercial nuclear fission plants can NEVER be safe. There has to be cost savings for them to be profitable. Costs are saved in safety measures, protocols and all that.

Look, in the US of A, there's a number of fission plants of the BWR type that are about to do a tripple Fukushima. A few hours of non working Diesel generators (without backup) or non-insulated cables that haven't been checked in 40 years are all it takes. WHY IS THIS NOT ADRESSED?
THe answer to that question leads you straight to the bigger picture...

It's very dark Malikai, it's against human beings as a species. Do you have children? I still want some. We can't really handle radiation well. Especially children, that grow, and have many cell divisions. We'll simply die out. Disappear. Genocide. The elite, the bankers, the billionaires too. EXTINCTION EVENT. Some find my conclusion slight out of hand, but really, if you know that "genetic passports" are about to be issued in Kazachstan, that say who can procreate and who can't, because their gene pool is so messed up, they have to take that action, and that roughly 250K chlidren in the Fukushima Province get little cute toys that are used to measure the radiation they catch (invisible snake) as part of a long term experiment, instead of that the government gives them DOSIMETERS (which cost the same) to give them the means to stay out of hot spots, then I'm not guessing, but I know it's fucked up. Really I can't come to any other outcome, believe me I want to!

it is much worse than bad. 

just wait until the cancer numbers come in. and then get revised. and re-revised to the Nth. 

and that's only in Japan. 

then we will review Pacific NW data.

and then we will all have much regret that we did not focus on FuckYouShima when we had a chance and instead bickered over Monopoly-like deluded monies and imaginary meaningless debt-ceilings. 

cancer and mutation are real. fake monies are just that.

Shit, all I know is I saw a map of the radiation blowing over L.A. into AZ and NM and since the Rockies are not too big there I assume it goes all the way to FL.

I consider this crazy Karma. Since the East Coast Tribe has to deal with most of the nuclear reactors in the USA, it's only fitting that the West Coast Tribe gets to share Japan's.

Bullish for test equipment manufactures which will need to adjust to higher readings.
