Something Is Killing Life All Over The Pacific Ocean – Could It Be Fukushima?

Something Is Killing Life All Over The Pacific Ocean – Could It Be Fukushima

Why is there so much death and disease among sea life living near the west coast of North America right now? Could the hundreds of tons of highly radioactive water that are being released into the Pacific Ocean from Fukushima every single day have anything to do with it? last article about Fukushima, I got a lot of heat for being “alarmist” and for supposedly “scaring” people unnecessarily. I didn’t think that an article about Fukushima would touch such a nerve, but apparently there are some people out there that really do not want anyone writing about this stuff. Right now, massive numbers of fish and sea creatures are dying in the Pacific Ocean. In addition, independent tests have shown that significant levels of cesium-137 are in a very high percentage of the fish that are being caught in the Pacific and sold in North America. Could this have anything to do with the fact that the largest nuclear disaster in the history of mankind has been constantly releasing enormous amounts of radioactive material into the Pacific Ocean for more than two years? I don’t know about you, but to me this seems to be a question that is worth asking. Read More »

Japan’s Theater Of The Nuclear Absurd

Japan's Theater Of The Nuclear Absurd

“Spider and I sat watching the sky on a world without sound.” - Eno (1) I live in a world conquered by evil. It's bad enough that the Fukushima nuclear power plant no. 1 (FNPP#1) is leaking upwards of 160 billion becquerels of radiation into the ocean every day, including cesium, strontium and who knows what else on a list of dangerous isotopes (2). However, Japan's prime minister continues to contradict himself, speaking with a forked tongue out of both sides of his mouth-with-foot-inserted. Read More »

Asahi Shimbun, Oct. 24, 2013: Highest radiation level detected in water found in drainage ditch at Fukushima nuclear plant [...] The utility announced Oct. 24 that it had detected radioactive strontium and other beta ray emitting substances measuring 140,000 becquerels per liter in water sampled in one of the facility’s drainage ditches. [...] TEPCO officials said the high radiation level was detected in water collected on Oct. 23. The levels in water taken on Oct. 22 were 59,000 becquerels per liter. Read More »

Nuclear report warns of apocalyptic scenario at Fukushima in weeks ahead

Nuclear report warns of apocalyptic scenario at Fukushima in weeks ahead

Voice of America, Oct. 15, 2013: [Mitsuhei Murata, Japan’s former ambassador to Switzerland] said a series of incidents over the past 30 months – including radioactive water leaks – have called into question TEPCO’s ability to carry out this critical operation. “The Unit 4 contains 10 times more Cesium-137 than Chernobyl. So in case the worst occurs, a total withdrawal [from the site] will be imposed, which means this can be considered as the beginning of the ultimate catastrophe of the world and the planet,” said Murata [...] “The two-and-a-half years of struggling by the state and by TEPCO have proven that nuclear accidents cannot be coped with by electric companies or by a single state.” Read More »

The Lid Comes Off Fukushima Daiichi, “Japan’s Ground Zero”: The Devastating Consequences of Government Inaction

The Lid Comes Off Fukushima Daiichi, “Japan’s Ground Zero” The Devastating Consequences of Government Inaction

Japan’s searing summer of 2013 saw the lid slide further off Fukushima Daiichi and its Pandora’s box of radioactive and political crises. The company in charge, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), already Japan’s most distrusted firm,2 was irredeemably exposed as dangerously incompetent. A slew of reports concerning leaks of high-level radiation led to increasingly concerned appeals, from within Japan and from overseas, for the Abe Shinzo government to take over at Fukushima Daiichi.
