Texas politicians knew agency hid the amount of radiation in drinking water, KHOU, May 19, 2011:

Newly-released e-mails from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality show the agency’s top commissioners directed staff to continue lowering radiation test results, in defiance of federal EPA rules. [...]

“It’s a conspiracy at the TCEQ of the highest order,” said Tom Smith, of the government watchdog group Public Citizen.  “The documents have indicted the management of this commission in a massive cover-up to convince people that our water is safe to drink when it’s not.” [...]

For years, tests performed by the Texas Department of State Health Services showed the utility provided water that exceeded the EPA legal limit for exposure to alpha radiation.  [...]

    Time for new Air Sampling-R­eactor 4 steaming and smoking
    http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/4146

    Reactor number 4 has been letting off a lot of steam and smoke as of Saturday am PDT 7:09. Been doing so for last couple of days. Important to have an air sampling in 36 to 72 hours to see if there is an increase in fall out coming our way. Have to keep a close watch on the reactors as issues with structural integrity and corium blobs seeping out of containmen­t.

    Reply
    as of 7:30 am all buildings at Fukushima are obscured. flashes of light have been reported to be spotted earlier in the night hours. could the Brawm team comment on these flashes of light coming from the reactor buildings. Something is not going well over there this am PST.

    “Their acts are reprehensible, considering that they took advantage of their being the wife and secretary of a lawmaker in trying to win trust,” said Hajime Shimada, the presiding judge at the Tokyo District Court.’

      They are trying to get out of the water. Just like the starfish and the sardines etc. I wonder if that’s what is happening, then why? Is the water burning their skin &/or gills and they are seeking to escape it? Or is it oxygen depletion and they are literally gasping for breath? Because SO MANY WHALES, DOLPHINS and SEALS have also washed in, and they are not gill breathers, I tend to rule out at least ‘just oxygen depletion’ – leaning me towards acidic or burning or toxic poisonous water. That its happening at this date and in the area is also highly suspicious, no? Right in path for Japan water discharges isn’t it? Why would water animals ever seek to leave the water? Think about it, this would parallel us jumping into the ocean to breathe.

      Heavy rains could be to blame for shark die-off in San Francisco Bay
      Associated Press
      Posted: 05/18/2011 07:42:48 AM PDT
      Updated: 05/18/2011 12:09:04 PM PDT

      This winter’s heavy rains may be to blame for a rash of leopard shark deaths in San Francisco Bay.

      State biologists say the rain could be reducing the salinity of the bay’s water, having a fatal effect on the sharks’ body chemistry.

      The evidence for that theory is so far not conclusive. Biologists are hopeful that blood and tissue samples expected to be released this week will shed more light on a possible cause.

      More than 100 of the sharks have washed ashore in San Mateo, San Francisco and Marin counties over the past month.

      Necropsies of some of the sharks showed they were suffering from internal bleeding and brain lesions.

    I’ve seen a film about Tchernobyl. The critical point was to prevent the meltdown to reach the groundwater. Russia did it well at the expense of thousands of people.
    If was stated that if the meldown had touched the ground water the disaster would be 10 time worse.
    The Reason of this was not given.

    Coming back to Fukushima, we have here 3 nuclear reactors with meltdown. No action is done to prevent the meltdown to reach the ground water.
    The conclusion is that the Situation is very very very bad. I cannot understand that US and other countries let this situation worsen every day without doing anything.

    I-Team tests local rainwater for Japan radiation

    ‘St. Louis County, MO (KSDK) – This month the EPA quietly announced it was scaling back its radiation monitoring because the threat of fallout from Japan’s nuclear crisis had decreased.

    Since the Fukushima disaster, some of you have questioned the accuracy of the government’s tests.

    In response, NewsChannel 5 contracted with Test America, a nationally recognized environmental lab to run independent tests.’

    The Number 11

    The number 11 and in particular the number 11:11 (as seen on a clock) is considered, by many light workers and channellers to be a portal to other astral dimensions. The number 11 is also considered to be a ‘master number” in schools of numerology.

    Deities associated with the number 11 are the Sea Kings such as the Roman God Neptune and the Greek God Poseidon.

    A common Chinese superstition is that washing your hair on the 11th day of the month will improve your eyesight.

    It was hubris and megalomania as well greed and narcissism that got us to this mess with Fukushima which is only the beginning of the earth’s nuclear holocaust.

    Only with humility and prayer and faith in Jesus Christ will our Creator help us out of the mess. Only the Holy Spirit can change the hearts of the nuclear lovers. Reason won’t help because the nuclear lovers are insane sociopaths!!! Only by a miracle of God will we survive all the radiation spread out and accumulated over the earth.
    The nuclear lovers want you to think that Darwin can help with radiation. This way of thinking is a big scam. They are still married to welfare for the wealthy.

    Tony Sully,
    It may surprise you because you have so much hate for Christians, Christians don’t hate you! They just pity you because you don’t have the Truth. You are sad and to be pitied. All you have to do is open your heart and Jesus will forgive you and come to live in your heart. Seek and ye shall find! And what you will find is the peace that passeth all understanding. The attributes you give to Christians is really funny. Christians are NOT afraid. As Bonhoeffer said, if I can still remember rightly, Christians do not believe in God as deus ex machina. People don’t invent God because they are afraid. Rather they listen and are content to have Jesus in their lives. Not my will by Thy will be done. Did you never hear of God caring for the lilies of the field? And He loves and cares for us even more than the lilies of the field.
    If you impute fear to Christians, you are projecting your own fear onto others. Christians don’t have that fear. They just have sorrow that some people don’t know how much God loves them. God knows what you need even if you don’t know to specifically ask for it. All we need pray is Thy will be done. And He will answer that prayer, not because we deserve it because He loves us and gives us every good thing as a free gift. That free gift is grace. “Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.”

    If you pray for the Holy Spirit to enter your heart like it did Paul on the Road to Damascus, God will answer your prayer. Ask anew every day and it will be given anew to you every day. And once saved your can never be lost again.

    You can rant every day. But God’s power is stronger than all your invective. You have free will. You can give your will to Jesus and know complete peace.

    Even Lord Jesus, come quickly.

    Okay then. I’ll name my HEPA filter Jesus. I can use all the exposure help I can get. There’s room for all. I’ll name my water filter Buddha… My indoor garden prefers paganism and my umbrella is a secular humanist.

    Mothra,
    I’m sorry. But naming your HEPA filter Jesus is blasphemy. You should have more respect for God, the Creator of our universe. He can intervene and cause miracles to happen. But He also gives free will to everyone to blaspheme against Him and to let humans cause suffering and death to other humans. He also allows humans to create such things as HEPA filters. You should be giving thanks that you aren’t in Japan and that you have enough money to buy filters and other things to protect you. I don’t have any money for such things, so I have to rely on His direct intervention.

    Admire her courage for daring to have ice cream, made with the great harbinger of death… MILK!

    Sounds yummy. A root beer float sounds good too.
    I wonder if any still make authentic 1950′s recipe root beer? Did it really cause cancer? How many people died? I bet it tasted better.

    The root beer deaths were a cover-up for atomic testing!!!

    bob radiation contains high levels of metals…all the metal now in the water could very well be effective their magnetic radar…not to mention, I know sharks breath differently from other kinds of fish…perhaps they are effected differently from radioactive pollution than gilled fish.

    applies to all posters that participate in off topic childish distractions and ignorant comments – all serious participants ignore fake banter and clutter – quickly skip through and just ignore the children’s folly and read only intelligent offerings, – its the internet – freedom of constructive speech and freedom of destructive ignorance… this got repeated below but meant for this childish poster – or poster child . .

    Sharks are also ultra sensitive creatures. I am sure if they can sense a drop of blood in millions of gallons of water, they surely might exhibit similar sensitivities to poisons in their environment. Perhaps reacting earlier than other species. With toxic elements sharks are almost crippled I believe with their giant livers…. they can test for high mercury for instance when compared to samples of fish in a given area etc..

    Though you grind a fool in a mortar, grinding them like grain with a pestle, you will not remove their folly from them.
