Analyst: Cost of admitting the truth about Fukushima is so great that Japan won’t admit it — Enough to make you question whether to live in Tokyo (VIDEO)

The Fukushima Business Decision (Don Harold and I Talk)
Warren Pollock
Date Published: Jun 11, 2012

Envisioning the Total costing of Fukushima allows you to understand the issues with clarity. Presently, and as usual, people are being manipulated by the details. We each have to conduct our own analysis and build a decision making process for uncertainty. We have to admit that facts and impact cannot (or by design) be presented and organized to an action plan.

Pollock: There is enough missing information, there’s enough omitted information, to make you question whether or not you want to live in Tokyo.

At 7:45 in

Pollock: I think in Japan what is being made is the business decision. The business decision is: The cost of admitting the truth is so great I won’t admit it; business as usual, everyone stays in Tokyo, everyone stays in Fukushima.

At 11:30 in

Pollock: Have they made a business decision, are they responsible enough to tell you what the truth of the matter is?

    The japanese view the cost of killing millions as lower then the near term costs of a massive
    evacuation and shutdown.

    Pity, because Japan has existed for millions of years, but the Japanese people may not survive a generation of their bad leaders.

    What a public testament of the dishonorable behavior and conditions in Japan.

  • PhilipUpNorth philipupnorth lied to the Japanese people on Fuku since 311. Wake up, prople of Japan! Get out of Tokyo right now! Tokyo is toast. Japan is toast. You have no future there. Tokyo has deadly radiation in every nook and crannie from Fuku. Remember watching Reactor 3 blowing sky high? This reactor was fueled with MOX, the high-plutonium fuel. This plutonium cloud drifted over Tokyo. A dose of one ten millionth of a gram of plutonium is considered a deadly dose. Doses of deadly radiation from Fuku are still rising and falling, as 3 coriums sputter, steam, and hiss in the ground under Fuku. "Rethink the nuclear industry?" Rethink the hell out of the nuke industry! Fight nukes. Stop nukes. Japan, stop nukes restarts now!!!

    All governments are staying mum. A worldwide cover up. Anything involving nuclear, is either a lie, or a secret. And always been that way.

    Truth be powerful medicine … Beware how you ask for it,
    for it may come by the boatload, and swamp your little dingy of reality …

    Hold on 'newsers, the hidden sentiment here has always been: why are they telling us this … it must be because full disclosure would overwhelm us … I have in fact have had trouble engaging in hyperbole on the Fuku matter … it keeps getting actually worse than my wildest exagerrations!! What is up with that? Mr. Big Nuclear Corporate Criminal Elite?

    Peace among the actinides.

      Worst than wildest exaggerations, when we tell people outside of this group or direct knowledge they are apt to disregard the truth as the topic is SO VAST, beyond everyone's comprehension. I certainly never imagined blogging with virtual strangers – ones that I would come to know, respect and trust in conversations about the end of humanity – the world as we know it.

      Sharing our most dire feeling about the human experience through a keyboard as most we come into contact with will not share or bare the weight of the topic with us. I am greatful to this forum and community to helpe deal with this overwhelming topic / prospect sensibly together.

    • Similar story up front at Kudankulam:
      Croatian double barrel RPV and its non destructive testing cannot avoid the scam?
      The Croatians who are testing the Kudankulam reactor NON-DESTRUCTIVELY seem to be worried as they are having, it seems, a good look at the glaring lacuna posed by dams in the design to meet water needs of modern civilization.
      Its a question of nuke explosion via dams of the world as well. Too bad the RPV double welds and breach of agreement and corruption. Must be examined before fuel loading now. Any comments? For the sake of all life for all time. The Russians are also having a good hard look at the glaring lacuna. Oh! Blue Fin Tuna, where are you, can I find one without the scourge of Caesiuma?

    Kudankulam seems to magnify every problem that Fukushima had as well as being in an extremely convenient place to attack should Pakistan want to devastate India. Pakistan does not need their own nuclear weapons to attack India with that large group of reactors only steps from the southern tip of India.

    Fukushima Daiichi was only prone to tsunamis from one direction. Kudankulam is at the southern point of India. No need for terrorists, India has placed its own time bomb there.

    I have never purchased any item from India that made specified quality level. I investigated many failed products where the client attempted to save money by purchasing from India. Parts that were supposed to be gold plated to prevent oxidation would turn green after weeks from the contaminants of the recovered dental fillings used to reduce the cost of the gold. Thickness of copper would be reduced to save pennies. I shudder to think what cost cutting measures would go into a nuclear plant there in a country where a large portion of people have to eat pog pog (pog pog is meat pulled off of chicken bones found in garbage)

    The only thing learned from Chernobyl by gov. and nuclear industry is they can cheat the public! They can not controll leaking radiation from their plants, they can not prevent severe accidents, they have no solutions for the waste. But they get a grip on the official information!
