I'm sure everything is just fine over at Fukushima.

Like the report says, everything is fine, they are just being proactive so a nuclear chain reaction does not occur.  Move along....

if, as we learned from that 70's show (et. al.), cockroaches survive nuclear explosions, imo the injection of boric acid is ominous.

A study (Tarasenko et al. 1972), summarized by Moore (1997), found a decrease in sexual activity in 28 workers exposed to very high concentrations of boron (10 mg/m3). Examination of the semen from six of the workers demonstrated a reduction in semen volume, a decrease in the number of spermatozoa, and decreased sperm motility.

The sexual activity of workers is a troubling thing, so lets add boron to the water supply.  It's for the best.

Check out the dead and dying seals from a "mysterious" disease in western Alaska.  I found out the skinny on RSOE EDIS and this is more than troubling, it's disastrous.

At least now we know which way the radioactive seawater currents flow.

"Hardly the encouraging news that the world needs right about now."

The world ( AKA America) does not care. Nor will they be told about this current "nuclear event" Mainstream media was caught off guard when it reported the earthquake and nuke melt down in the first place - they did not mean to tell the truth and were quickly brought into line so the market could "Fukushima Rally" up to new yearly highs soon after. ( remember Katrina? - same thing - truth in reporting quickly vanished ) Fukushima is a disaster of epic proportions, generations from now ( if our greedy, species is still around) maybe we will see that. We cannot continue down the path of nuclear power - its been a lie from day one, we need to shut down and dismantle every reactor in the world.

Japan has almost HALF of US's total population.....that's a lot of people...and due to failing ponzinomics unemployeed people. a lot of old folks as well.


Fukushima is one for way Japanese elites to get rid of some country folks to address overpopulation. Sick shit.

I think it may be time to give the China Syndrome a new name. I mean, they don't need it, do they? Perhaps we should hold a naming contest in Fukushima to lift everyone's morale?

From the Bloomberg screen bugs this AM:

"No new radiation found. Situation under control. TEPCO."

That followed a bug that said "New radiation emission at Fukushima." So which is it? Sounds like the PTB cant get their stories straight. But I guess it's all good if it distracts from Europe.

The article states that the tsunami caused "partial meltdown in three of its reactos."  What BS!  There are three meltTHROUGHS and one if not all have been conclusively been shown to have occured as a result of the earthquake alone . . .              Fore un-BBCed info, , check out

When underground is nearly at sea level, that's not such a great place for it to occur of course.

I once pissed green!  It was up in the Andes, at about 13,000 feet.  I presume is was the extra-blue sky up there, the bus had stopped for a pee-break.  I know that it was green because one of my friends with me was pissing green too, right there just off the road.  1981.  True story.  Ask my friend Howie!
