Excerpt from former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland Mitsuhei Murata’s letter to U.S. Ambassador to Japan John V. Roos, published Aug. 6, 2013: […] I will treasure the three encouraging letters you have so kindly addressed to me during your mission in Japan. The Japanese, going through the terrible tragedy, will never forget your invaluable support offered in time of need. I am convinced that you fully understand the historic role of Japan never to allow the horrific nuclear disaster to happen again on this planet. The worsening radioactive contamination of the sea will soon awaken the whole world to the nuclear dangers that cannot be endured by human society. […]

Excerpt from former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland Mitsuhei Murata’s letter to U.S. Ambassador to Japan John V. Roos, published Aug. 9, 2013: […] With the problem of contaminated water at the Fukushima Daiichi beyond control, the full assumption of responsibility by the Government is now unavoidable. I am attaching the exchange of mails with the Center for Ocean Research Kiel in Germany and with Reverend Gunnar Stalsett, member of the Norwegian Nobel committee. I am convinced that Fukushima has started changing the world. […]

Response from the Center for Ocean Research Kiel in Germany
: On behalf of Prof. Herzig I would like to thank you for forwarding the actual information on Fukushima contaminated water to us. We are currently examining whether our scientists will be able to provide an updated model simulation of contaminated water release into the Pacific and will come back to you as soon as possible.

Response from Reverend Gunnar Stalsett, member of the Norwegian Nobel committee: Thanks for sharing the important message with me. I have passed it on to the GS of the World Council of Churches as the nuclear issue will be an important issue at the upcoming Assembly in Busan.  Please continue to keep me in the loop.

      ~~~~~~

      You see a pair of all white eyes

      And suddenly your mind cry's
      
You're thinking something's wrong

      You string along, boy, then snap!

      Those eyes, those cry's, they're part of the Nuclear trap

      You're hands are sweating beneath the trees

      And soon there's radioactivity in the breeze

      You're acting strange, until holes in your heart goes wap!

      Those reactors, that fuel pool, they're part of the NRC's trap

      Some starry night, when Plutonium makes you tingle

      Makes your lungs tight, as isotopes intermingle

      And all at once it seems not so nice
      Merchants are selling radioactive fish and rice


      You hurry to Hawaii, that's just a dot on the map
      You're fucked, you're cooked, you're caught in the Corium's trap

      Some radioactive nights, when Becquerels in food make you tingle

      The'll fold you tight, you'll hate yourself for letting'em intermingle

      And all at once it seems not so nice

      Folks are throwing away their glowing fish and rice


      You hurry to a spot that's not contaminated on the map

      And then you wonder how it all came about
      
It's too late now there's no gettin' out


      You fell for Nuclear energy, and that's NRC's death trap

  • Canuck1

    the most we can all do is complain on these forums..SAD

  • Cataclysmic Cataclysmic

    It still makes me want to cry. Our Ocean, we destroyed it.. and ourselves.

    Greed.

    I wish we could stop the world and let off all the fools… (INXS)

    • S'okay, Cataclysmic. They've got big, bad SuperOceanographers on their team now, telling us all about how polonium-210 is "the most common" radioisotope in the oceans, and we get way more of it in our tuna sandwich than cesium or strontium – mere piddly-assed beta-emitters. Nifty that this came just in time for today's announcement about Yasser Arafat being assassinated with polonium-210, n'est ce pas?

      And just so you know, NO. Polonium-210 is not the most common radioisotope in the oceans (look it up!). It's not even in the big five. Hell, on a list of 1 to 10, it's number 10 – dead last, a certifiably "rare" element. You'd think an oceanographer measuring radiation in the sea off Fukushima would know that, wouldn't you?

      Heh… They're setting us up for something, and it doesn't look good.

      • Cataclysmic Cataclysmic

        Hey JoyB.. stay healthy.. No tuna here since 2011. I found a bunch of cans at the store in the back that were nearly expired… that was it for me.

        Yea, these oceanographers make me sick! Woodsasshole, funded by Ratheon, DOE, Navy etc.. no wonder we don't know anything. So crazy that Ratheon has created this giant observation system and yet we know nothing..could it be because of their (and others) nuclear biz? "Given the vastness of the oceans and the need for a greater understanding of ocean processes, oceanographers in the United States have recently begun a large-scale engineering program, a system-of-systems, called the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). The OOI program, funded by the National Science Foundation, is planned as a networked infrastructure of sensor systems that will address vital science questions by measuring physical, chemical, geological and biological variables of the ocean. The OOI will provide research scientists, educators, students and the public with unparalleled access to the physical, chemical, geological and biological phenomena of the ocean. Raytheon engineers have been working closely with a number of organizations involved in the program."

        IMHO the PH of the Pacific Ocean occurs to be changing. Guess we are lucky so many morons have opted for student loan slavery, as opposed to making a difference eh?

          "Guess we are lucky so many morons have opted for student loan slavery, as opposed to making a difference eh?" – that statement covers a vast array of morons.
          I remember watching a doc on the first test of the a-bomb…some of the scientists thought it wouldn't work at all. Some of them thought it would be fine and work as planned, but some thought it might react with the hydrogen and oxygen in the oceans and air and vaporize the planet altogether. They lit the damn thing off anyway…
          These students/professors are so damn naive and full of themselves. Too much study and not enough time for reflection. Someone here mentioned there should be some sort of Hippocratic oath for the scientist of the world…

      • Maybe it's a red herring for Pu?

        • Cataclysmic Cataclysmic

          LOL @ Majia 🙂

        • Who the hell knows? Got into a knock-down drag-'em-out over the last couple of days over at DKos with another oceanographer whose defense of Buesseler was admirable on the hero-worship scale, but flat out mystifying on the actual scientific scale. I mean, it's just not that hard to find a list of the most common 'natural' radioactive isotopes in seawater, and Po-210 is #10 on that list. Rare, because it's rare – has a short half-life before turning to lead, there are much heftier half-lives in the chain to hold things up at bottlenecks. And decay chains are relative anyway, we get to trace the ones of greatest percentage. Which isn't all of 'em.

          Sorry, still steaming. An honest researcher would do the fact-check and correct the record asap. An honest oceanographer asserting an error picked up from an unfamiliar field would NOT when called on it get into a public fight about it with a nuclear health physicist.

          Oy. We're being carefully set up. None of us really wants to know why…

            How many times do I have to express at least on my part..that the offer in return in intellectual response..
            And yes..on the odd occasion we gasp and sigh..we might imply silent tears.
            But the response is intellectual..

            To this I add.

            Wait for it. You are going to lie no matter the results, so what you have to say doesn't matter..Heart

            " There is no mass ‘flotilla’ of debris headed toward U.S. coasts," an NOAA representative assured the outlet, noting that the map's outline merely represents a general area of higher concentration, not solidified mass."

      • bo bo

        JoyB I just read that page and I'm fuming.

        • Aye, that's the only rational reaction to this shit, bo. It's so disheartening to see so clearly how the dastardly nukes – who we already know to be inveterate, compulsive liars – succeed in absolutely destroying the credibility of real scientists in such a grossly insidious way. Even worse to have what should be honest researchers stubbornly insist that the lies they're telling must be taken as Absolute Scientific Proof by We the Peons who f*cking KNOW better.

          Worse, they're getting away with it because most people have been taught to automatically trust them, even if those same people have learned NOT to trust anything the nukies say.

          Yeah. Still has me hopping mad too. The Po-210 thing is so utterly transparent, and so easily demonstrated wrong, that it just leaves you sputtering when they brush off the objection as if they can magically change the ocean just by asserting a lie. Sorta makes me wonder what else they're lying about… ARGH!!!

      "We and I and Grampybone be likin' this here prophecy."

    @Grampybone
    We have entered a modern Dark Age of paradoxes. The internet is available on mobile devices so no more arguments at the bar. Yet the masses don't know how things work.

    There have never been as much law enforcement and surveillance as there is presently. Yet everyday there are reports of mass violence even in an area near you.

    Information flows at the speed of light, but the deliberative processes of government cannot give immediate assistance as man made disasters increase in frequency and magnitude.

    • Grampybone Grampybone

      Correct. There is no way for governments to control the power of Moore's Law. The power of computing has set a fire of chaos in power structures world wide over spying. If they stay distracted long enough they won't notice the 3 melted cores killing all the starfish in the entire Pacific ocean.

    Perusing the net, it looks like the propaganda mill is ready to fire up with a movie coming out on CNN. I'm wondering what think tank put it out.

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/06/us/atomic-economics/

    The best comment in the article comes from Peter Bradford, former NRC member:

    "And while the zero-carbon promise of nuclear power may be appealing, the billions it would take to build a nuclear plant could better be spent to develop renewable energy sources like wind and solar, boost conservation efforts and improve fuel efficiency for motor vehicles, he said."

    Meanwhile, stupidest comment goes to this strawman argument from the pro-nuke side:

    "Of course, it's possible to erect tens of thousands of windmills but only at an extreme cost and waste of natural space," he said. "And still it would not be able to deliver electricity when it is needed."

    http://edition.cnn.com/2013/11/03/world/nuclear-energy-climate-change-scientists/index.html

    HELLO! DEcentarlized alternative energy (a solar or wind system on every roof) is the answer. You don't NEED to have giant space consuming complexes! Those should be a LAST resort. If everyone had a small system that would dramatically reduce the pull on the commercial grid and you wouldn't need big eyesores or NPPs. Pay for it by diverting money earmarked for nukes (and while we are at it, the Trillion Dollars A Year! going to build yet more bombers and bombs).

    Only AFTER everyone has a system should we consider…

    Murata is inspirational and I think he is so correct about the need for the maternal principle.

    For without them we are lost.

  • Ron

    A very big reason why some people want us to think that alternative energy MUST come from large plants (while never mentioning individually owned, decentralized energy) is because one way or the other, they want to get our money. Everyone owning their own would severely cut into their profits.

    Decentralized alternative energy first! Centralized alternative energy second. Dirty energy third.

  • Sol Man

    Perhaps Bloom Energy boxes and batteries for back-up. I think that there are ways to create energy with the most creative not thought of yet.
    Here is a question for the nuclear genius out there: What is the value of genomes once corrupted by radiation?

  • bo bo

    I love this response: 'will get back to you as soon as possible.'

    Perhaps this Center for Ocean for research means well since they are German ( they abandoned nuclear power), but feel so betrayed by 'scientists' from NOAA. I really do hope this is their sincere response. 🙁

  • isogoodhumans

    joyB, its pretty bad when places like Woods Hole mix up natural isotopes of polonium and cesium with radionuclides. The natural isotopes excrete fast. Radionuclides, they can stay in your bidy your entire life.

    http://www.whoi.edu/page.do?cid=94989&pid=83397&tid=3622

    • Alas, isogoodhumans. If they'd just mixed them up it would have been an honest mistake and the error corrected as soon as it was brought to their attention and they'd done a 2-minute fact-check. Then they could confront their 'handlers', the nukes who fed 'em the disinfo.

      Unfortunately, it's part of a deliberate and fully coordinated disinformation campaign, Woods Hole is in it up to their eyeballs. THAT is how you get supposed trustworthy 'experts' arguing in public with someone who actually does know Po-210 isn't "the most common" radioisotope in the oceans. No honest scientist would do that. Being accurate is far too important to the validity of their work.

      This isn't work. It's propaganda.

    Greetings! David Ono is talk about Fukashima on ABC News (11:00 p.m. tonight.)I am wondering if he WILL! I chose to boycott watching CNN because they came out with "Pandora's Promise" which promotes nuclear energy. They also had Anthony Bourdain on last Sunday in Tokyo with NOT ONE WORD about the disaster. He concentrated on the PORN industry instead. Disgusting!
    We are now in what I call, "The Twilight Zone Apocalypse". We must be wise, healthy, and in my opinion "saved" to endure it!
    We are taking a boron capsule, 12 mg. iodine capsule, Vitamin C (1000 mg., 2000 mg. at a time), Vitamin D3 (at least 5000 mg. at a time, no toxic effect in this form) and other things like almond milk to fight the radiation and cancer that it brings.
    My prayer is that we will NOT have to survive another five years enduring this. Blessings to you all!

  • 4Yahshua

    Correction: David Ono is to "address" this issue.
