Sachiko Sato, Mother/Farmer from Fukushima: Over 75% of Fukushima has radiation over 0.6 microsieverts per hour. This should be declared to be a radiation control area. We found this out by checking the schools where our children go. The result was so high. […] 75% of the land was contaminated with high levels of radiation. We immediately requested the local and Prefectural board of education to evacuate children.

    I could have room for some kids. It's just my wife, son and me. Superb neighborhood for kids too, we have about 2 dozen on our street alone. Highschool age and down.

      Oh heck yeah Twin Cities is a very nice neighborhood 🙂

      I have room too and would be willing to help if needed.

      @StPaulScout, forget about "taking possession" of cute kids! (I mean this respectfully and am not insinuating selfish or dark intentions.) What about the adults? You have to save the parents and grandparents, too, and offer them a life together. By ripping families apart, I am not sure if you make the situation even worse for everyone, including the kids.

    Lots of children are slowly getting killed. This is no accident. People are doing this. For nuclear weapons, for money, for power, for career. Time for a career change for some of them:

      Corporations can't do fracking without the people.
      Nuclear plants can't work without h]the people…
      People need to save themselves and find other work for the general good!
      I use to work for the US goverment but…well…I didn't like what I was suppose to do so I left the job…come on people…step up!


        don't kid yourself many moons. Many who are working within the machine would do otherwise if they had viable alternatives. There aren't.

        The government colluded with the multinationals in purposely dismantling the industrial infrastructure in the US. The bulk of employment opportunities are now in the global military-police-security-state. If you're willing to sellout your fellow human being, you may have a chance of getting in. Those with economic power have no interest in the growth of peaceful technologies or industries. It's all about centralization and repression. Whether you're on the inside or not, most are fully aware of how bad it's become. The 'quickening' must occur before anything else can come to pass; and as you're well aware, it's in motion…

          I strongly agree with every word you say, AFTERSHOCK. But the career change I had in mind was considering one of the biggest industries in the U.S. and some other countries. This industry always has opportunities for plenty more people, reliably offers room for people with full-time, long-term and even live-long commitment. And when you look at the outstanding merits and the done service to mankind of the mangers, scientists and engineers in the nuclear industry and some supporters in politics, science, education, medicine and media, you can see that this industry is currently unfairly preferring the wrong people. (Don't be afraid of my strange-language link above! You will understand.)

    Governments, and nuclear industries, must widen the exclusion zone. Problem isn't going away. They must widen it.

      Did you know that China has about 60 million empty, newly built apartments (americas property bubble squared, so to speak) – enough room for all 120 million japanese. But I see at least two problems. Firstly, the moment they all leave their country, they are no more able to afford those apartments than the poorest beggar from Somalia. Secondly, one day a nuclear reactor in China will jump sky-high.

  • JustmeAlso

    Hi TheBigPicture,
    what if the exclusion zone has already become as wide as the whole globe? Maybe the ''normal'' background radiation needs some adjustment.

    Attention Enenews people … how can we organize to get those children out of there (Japan) ? … I have property in Appleton MN that is ready for a few families … how do we get them out of there and to safety ? Is there any English speaking folks in Japan reading this that can make contact with me somehow to get something moving on this ? … there are many properties in western Minnesota that are needing to be occupied … $$POD$$

  • ProfitOfDoom ProfitOfDoom

    Is there any non profit organization people here that have experience with international relations like this ? … where do we get started on this ? … it is time to focus on these children and make things happen … we all are aware that Japan is forever toxic and not getting better … $$POD$$
