TEPCO Admits Fukushima Radiation “Significantly” Undercounted

TEPCO Admits Fukushima Radiation Significantly Undercounted

From April to September of 2013, as Bloomberg reports, TEPCO admits that levels of radiation measured from water samples around the destroyed Fukushima nuclear reactor were "significantly undercounted." We assume it was mere coincidence that during this very time Shinzo Abe proclaimed the 2020 Olympics would be safe and used many of these readings as evidence. In addition to this debacle, The BBC reports, the likely scale of the radioactive plume of water from Fukushima due to hit the west coast of North America should be known in the next two months; and rather stunningly, The Japan Times reports a new study finds the lifetime risk of developing cancer has risen among 1-year-old girls in an area affected by the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant. But apart from that, everything's great. Read More »

US Govt Knows Fukushima Is A Worldwide Disaster

US Govt Knows Fukushima Is A Worldwide Disaster

olumnist Annette Sommers, Feb. 25, 2014: In a few months, the devastating effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster will officially taint America’s reputation. [...] Of course, all this information is just now circulating through the media because it’s finally a time-sensitive threat. Read More »

Fukushima Is Here! Contamination Found Off Vancouver Coast

Fukushima Is Here! Contamination Found Off Vancouver Coast

Scientists from the Bedford Institute of Oceanography have found levels of cesium in sea water off the Vancouver Canada coast that can be attributed to the Fukushima nuclear disaster. They levels are low, but the presence of cesium 134 confirms the contamination to be from Fukushima Daiichi. They cited the levels as such: Read More »

New Study – ‘Most’ Fukushima Ocean Radiation To Hit US Soon

New Study - 'Most' Fukushima Ocean Radiation To Hit US Soon

A study of transport and impact strength of Fukushima nuclear pollutants in the North Pacific surface’. Based on the statistics of surface drifter data of 1979–2011 and the simulation of nuclear pollutant particulate movements simulated using high quality ocean reanalysis surface current dataset, the transport pathways and impact strength of Fukushima nuclear pollutants in the North Pacific have been estimated Read More »

The Horrible Truth About Fukushima — Helen Caldicott, MD

The Horrible Truth About Fukushima — Helen Caldicott, MD

Author and Pediatrician Helen Caldicott takes time out of her busy schedule to join me to discuss the unfolding events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in Japan. Fukushima was devastated by a massive earthquake on March 11, 2011 which led directly to a massive failure causing hydrogen explosions which blew the roof off of at least two of the reactor buildings. Tepco and the Japanese government have understated the radiation dangers and the dire reality of the situation from day one. Read More »

Scientists Confirm Fukushima Radiation in California Kelp

Scientists Confirm Fukushima Radiation in California Kelp

Scientists analyzing kelp off the coast of San Diego confirmed the presence of cesium this week, a radioactive isotope directly linked to the Fukushima Daiichi power plant. Part of the ongoing “Kelp Watch 2014″ project, government and academic institutions have begun receiving results from samples of Bull Kelp and Giant Kelp collected along the California coast. Despite attempts by the media to downplay the ongoing disaster, the discovery has only confirmed the continued build up of radiation in West Coast waters. Read More »

Leading Scientist On Fukushima Radiation Hitting West Coast of North America: “No One Is Measuring So Therefore We Should Be Alarmed”

Leading Scientist On Fukushima Radiation Hitting West Coast of North America “No One Is Measuring So Therefore We Should Be Alarmed”

Federal, State and Local Governments Refuse to Test for Radiation on the West Coast of North America Numerous models show that – while the ocean dilutes radiation – pockets and streams of concentrated radiation may still hit the West Coast of North America. West Coast residents are very concerned. Indeed, many local and state government officials have said that residents are inundating them with questions about Fukushima radiation. Read More »

MSM Ignores Models Showing Radiation Hitting West Coast

MSM Ignores Models Showing Radiation Hitting West Coast

Without actual things to worry about, too many people these days are making up or exaggerating risks. Our recent story on the Fukushima Disaster is a good example. That was a terrible event, but what illness of the mind must people have to lie about the threat to B.C., even going so far as the misrepresent a wave-height map of the Pacific to pretend it shows that dangerous radiation is flowing to our shores?

Fukushima Radiation More Than 10 Times The Normal Level Is Detected On California Beaches

Fukushima Radiation More Than 10 Times The Normal Level Is Detected On California Beaches

Multiple independent tests have confirmed that levels of nuclear radiation are being detected on California beaches that are more than 10 times the normal level. Many believe that this is the result of highly radioactive water from Fukushima that has crossed the Pacific Ocean and is now washing up on California beaches. Others are blaming the radiation spikes on “natural sources”, but they can never seem to identify what those natural sources actually are. If this radiation is from Fukushima, it is only going to get worse over time. Every single day, another 300 tons of highly radioactive water gets released into the Pacific Ocean at Fukushima. Some of these radioactive elements have half-lives of about 30 years, so the total amount of radioactive material in the Pacific is continually growing and it will be with us for a very long time. As this highly radioactive water hits the west coast of the United States, a lot of that nuclear material will end up being deposited on our beaches. As you will see below, there is evidence that this is already happening. Read More »

Nuclear Expert Warns Of Danger To Entire Human Race

Nuclear Expert Warns Of Danger To Entire Human Race

As far as the cooling of earth is concerned, surely, it’s possible to do it from a technical point of view. But they will need a nitrogen unit, practically, a plant working non-stop. It’s bad the Japanese won’t let any foreign experts visit the station. And there were offers of help, not only from Russia but from many other countries too [...] Even if the soil around the nuclear power plant is totally frozen, this won’t fully eliminate the danger [...] I believe that the liquidation of the Fukushima accident’s consequences might have been much better organized if the works were managed not by the company that operates the Fukushima plant but by the Japanese government. This would have made the works much more effective – and much cheaper. [...] The Japanese are behaving rather strangely [...] First, for some reason, they do not hurry to clean up the consequences of the catastrophe until the situation becomes very critical for the entire humankind. Then, they start to do something, but, again for some unknown reason, they invent very complicated decisions, although they might have invented foreign specialists who would have helped them to build waste treatment facilities a long time ago. This would have been much cheaper and much more effective.” Read More »

Alaska Refuses To Test Fish For Radiation – Uses ‘Banana’ Excuse (BS)

Alaska Refuses To Test Fish For Rad - Uses 'Banana' Excuse (BS)

The Department of Environmental Conservation isn’t actively testing fish for radiation, Commissioner Larry Hartig told the Senate [...] Hartig said the state is relying on data and analyses from other coastal states, British Columbia and federal agencies [...] Still, Sen. Cathy Giessel, R-Anchorage, said her constituents have come to her with concerns. Hartig said in an interview that the department tests fish regularly, just not for radiation. [...] Hartig said it would be too expensive for the state to undertake a testing program that would be “statistically valid.” [...] he’s concerned that people are being misinformed [...] Read More »
