The Times, Jun 22, 2016 (emphasis added): Fukushima nuclear meltdown was covered up, plant operator admits — The company responsible for the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant has admitted lying about the meltdown of its reactors five years ago, in a deliberate cover-up

NHK, Jun 21, 2016: TEPCO admits meltdown cover-up — The president of Tokyo Electric Power Company has admitted the company concealed the reactor meltdowns at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant… TEPCO President Naomi Hirose said at a news conference on Tuesday that the company’s concealment of the meltdowns at the order of its then-president is a grave issue.

AP, Jun 21, 2016: The utility that ran the Fukushima nuclear plant acknowledged Tuesday its delayed disclosure of the meltdowns at three reactors was tantamount to a cover-up and apologized… “I would say it was a cover-up,” Hirose told a news conference. “It’s extremely regrettable.”… TEPCO has been accused of a series of cover-ups in the disaster…

Shanghai Daily (AP), Jun 22, 2016: It was a cover-up, says Fukushima chief

Asahi Shimbun, Jun 18, 2016: A panel investigating Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s response to the triple meltdown during the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster revealed an unpardonable breach of trust by the operator of the stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. But there is still a lot more work to be done by the panel to uncover the full scope of the utility’s apparent meltdown cover-up. Immediately after the catastrophic accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant, then TEPCO President Masataka Shimizu instructed employees not to use the term “meltdown,” leading to a delay in the official announcement, according to a report compiled by the investigation panel commissioned by the company. A reactor meltdown, or the melting of nuclear fuel in the core of a reactor, is about as bad as it gets. The panel’s report suggests that in the middle of this unprecedented nuclear disaster the top official of the plant operator was trying to conceal the severity of what was unfolding from the public

          2DUDe. Yes. See ownership of the Weather Channel. And "Owning the Weather in 2025." digitalaardvarks, we've had some discussion here re: this. When did we last see normal clouds or storm systems, and who can remember them among us? Anyone born in the last 20 years may never have witnessed normal weather.

          To hear some experts tell of it, weather mod has been underway for 70 years.

          David Rothschild is an interesting character. His interview on Infowars several years ago was rather telling. Alex can be pretty abrupt, but he drew him out.

          "So what if we own everything?" (I'm paraphrasing. I think the response was something like, "so what if we're rich and make a lot of profits, control things. What's wrong with that?"

          Energy weapons. Hmmn. They, too, have existed for a long time. I'll never be persuaded many of Tesla's inventions weren't put into practice. And Hadia, I suspect some of his technology has been developed into e-warfare applications. It's more subtle in appearance now than conventional weapons.

          So when can we expect Arnie Gundersen's confession and apology for saying that the melted uncontrollable, deadly nuclear fuel was sitting on the floor of the reactor buildings like a "pancake," and not going through the concrete.

          After all, he then compared it to cold spaghetti. When do we get our due apologies for this? At least Tepco didn't compare the life-killing meltdown to delicious breakfast food.

          The Fukushima coverup was globally orchestrated by many people at very high levels. Will try to find some of the orig. e-mails from the U.S., U.K., etc. and post. Those links posted here in the early months after 3/11.

          DUDe, those of us on the "fringe" will appear less and less nutty as things proceed. IMO we all need to accept there are technologies we thought were 30-50 years in the future, and the future is now. The common people are and have always been the enemy of monarchs and rulers. Now it's subtly/blatantly in our faces.

          The level and types of control are more subtle and more blatant.

          I'm wary of what might be done to us through the use of all the microwave roasting, super 4-D networks, etc. The goal is to bring wireless technology EVERYWHERE. If someone is EMF sensitive like me, good luck. Electrosmog is everywhere.

          A good friend of mine made me aware of this almost 20 years before weather warfare became common knowledge.

          The US AF has had electronic warfare officers for a long time. It should come as no surprise. It reminds me of the Star Trek episode where there were virtual wars. If your number comes up in the e-war, you go into the chamber and zap! you die.

          Nothing surprises me anymore. Nothing.

          DUDe, you're not alone in feeling like you just can't talk about some things. There are some things which just can't be discussed openly. It's kind of like the Soviet Union out there in free speech land these days, isn't it?

              I thought I saw that and an article which took it a step further, and showed how the U.S. and England had coordinated a PR effort. South Africa may (?) have been involved, too, but I'm not sure. Canada, perhaps. Reuters is based out of South Africa.

                Hillary knew on 3/11/11 how bad it was, and never said a thing to prevent the people of North America from breathing it all in as it swept across the continent, to slowly kill everything in it's path.

                From Hillary's personal email,courtesy of Wikileaks:

                Radiation leak from the Fukushima reactor 1.4(C) Stay indoors if at all possible. There is nothing,,no events, parties, sports, movies, etc that are worth B1 getting more exposure to radiation. The stuff travels far, very far. Wind is all over the place, but we must assume it is heading towards a major area like Tokyo, a city, a heat source. As long as the radiation leak is going, and up to 24-48 hours later, the threat is at is highest in most cases. Here is a wind chart online. It shows wind all over the place, but one trend is there – winds head to Tokyo. http://www.surfline.com/weather-forecasts/japan-wind-chart_2731 Also, power outage expected to hit about 1800 this evening as more people return home and start using more electricity. Charge any devices you have that need charging. People will draw a lot of power about 1800-1900, so expect blackouts and brownouts. Get your flashlights ready, with new batteries. Very similar to 3-Mile Island, and maybe Chernobyl. VOA news has this take. http://www.voanews.com/english/news/asiaaapans-Tsunam i-Death-Toll-Seen-Reaching-1000-117829978.htinl Leak has been doing since last night. It is still not under control.

                  A US team was flown in to help get this thing under control, but that is not public record yet. It will come out later, I think. Anway, leak from last night means it is hitting us about now. I am not going outdoors for a while. Normally one might also take K-I (Potassium Iodine) tablets as a precautionary measure. Substitutes include alternative sources of iodine includingisojinor consuming seaweed (nori). Wear a mask, and a hat if possible. Take a shower immediately after you return home and wash your clothes. Radioactive steam was released yesterday and continues today. It will likely be in the area now. What I suggest above is not costly, and not too onerous. Do it and play it safe. Don't go outdoors unless it is necessary.

                    The current situation at Daiichi-Fukushima Plant –The winds have changed direction and are heading out toward the sea at 15-25 mph. This positive development is likely to continue until Sunday, when winds will shift and head back toward Tokyo. Rain or snow is expected tonight. Skies will clear tomorrow. –DOE continues to lament the poor quality of information coming from the Japanese. We had earlier thought that the containment barrier ruptured in reactor 2 and that the blaze in building 4 was a spent rod fire. The Japanese have informed us that it was a lube oil fire in building 4, but the picture is still incomplete because we do not know if there is decreased water in the spent fuel pool. The Japanese have still not restored reliable cooling in reactors 1, 2, and 3. We do not know if the containment vessel in reactor 2 is intact. –State will coordinate on a strategy to get timely and useful information about the reactor from Japanese authorities and to persuade Jim Trapp's participation in Japan's crisis management center. Measuring Radiation Data and Plume Assessments –The Aerial Measurement System pod and its crew will arrive in Tokyo at 1330 EDT. DOE confirmed via Secretary Chu's call this morning with his Japanese counterpart that the GOJ will allow us to deploy the system. Crew will position themselves at our various posts in Japan to gather 'atmospheric data.

                      Subject: Synopsis of what is newto cause increased concern
                      Colleagues — As clarification for what is behind the greatly increased concern evident in the four points distributed to us by NRC this morning, I offer here for internal use only my reading of what has changed overnight, based on the 630 am EDT "Status Update" from the NRC's Emergency Operations Center. Water levels in the spent-fuel storage pools at Fukushima Dai-ichi Units 1,2, and 3 are now reported to be falling. At Unit 4, total loss of water from the spent-fuel pool has been reported . It is being reported that the zirconium cladding of the fuel is already burning (to an extent unknown) in the spent-fuel pools at both Units 3 and 4. (Note that the jargon "zirc interaction" in the NRC update means the stuff is burning.) High radiation levels are making it extremely difficult for safety workers to deal with the situation. My interpretation: Burning of the zirconium cladding on fuel exposed to the air (as in these spent-fuel pools in buildings that lost their integrity due to hydrogen explosions) will lead to large releases of fission products to the atmosphere. Complete destruction of the fuel and the release of a large fraction of its contained radioactivity would be expected to occur over a period of several hours — say, between 3 and 12 — once large-scale burning has commenced.

                      These releases would not be attenuated to the extent expected for releases from a reactor core after containment failure; they could approach or even exceed the quantity of radioactivity released at Chernobyl. This is because each spent-fuel pool contains the equivalent of one or more complete reactor cores. While the short half-life component of the radioactivity that was present when the fuel was in the reactor has decayed away after the fuel has been in the spent- fuel pool for some weeks, the longer-half-life radioactivity (such as cesium-137, 30-year half-life, and strontium-90, 28- year half life) is virtually all still there. I have checked my interpretation in the past few minutes with my friend Dr Robert Budnitz, the former head of Nuclear Regulatory Research of the US NRC who was in charge of the internal investigation at TMI. He is currently at a national meeting on reactor-safety issues with GE engineers and others in Wilmington, Delaware, where the course of the accident in Japan is under intensive discussion. Although the responsibility for any errors in the above is mine, I am confident that what I have said above comports with Budnitz's professional judgment as well as my own.

                      From 3/15/11 (there is some horrific data in this one):

                      WEATHER CONDITIONS, THE VERY LARGE RELEASES THAT COULD ENSUE FROM BURNING FUEL IN DRY SPENT-FUEL POOLS COULD LEAD TO DOSES IN TOKYO OF 10 REM OR MORE. TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE CONTINUING FAIRLY HIGH PROBABILITY OF A LARGE RELEASE OF THIS SORT, ALONG WITH THE LOW PROBABILITY OF THE KINDS WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT CAUSE MUCH OF THE MATERIAL TO REACH TOKYO, MY ROUGH JUDGMENTAL PROBABILITY ESTIMATE OF GETTING DOSES AS HIGH AS 10 REM IN TOKYO OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS IS ABOUT 1%, AND FOR DOSES OF 1-2 REM IN TOKYO IT WOULD BE ABOUT 10 PERCENT. IF THIS ACCIDENT WERE IN PHILADELPHIA AND THOSE WERE MY JUDGMENTAL PROBABILITIES FOR DOSES IN WASHINGTON, DC, I *WOULD* RECOMMEND ISSUING THE SAME INSTRUCTION WE JUST ISSUED FOR AMERICANS IN JAPAN. MY EARLIER (UNSENT) MESSAGE FOLLOWS. Jim — New calculations with the high-powered computer models at Livermore are underway and we expect results soon. In the meantime, we are making some runs at OSTP with the much cruder models we can run quickly here (which for "worst-case" type analyses generally succeed in bracketing what the fancier models predict). My guess is that they will show one could get in excess of 10 rem in Tokyo *IF* the wind blew steadily from Fukushima to Tokyo, with little wander in direction, for the entire duration of the release (3-12 hours) and for the travel time.

                      That is *NOT* the weather that is currently predicted (and it would be unlikely), in terms of persistence of the wind direction . Winds are currently predicted to be blowing out to sea from Fukushima until Sunday. It's impossible to say at this point what reactors or spent-fuel pools might still be in danger of producing large releases at that time.

            The EWO's, electronic warfare officers might be learning the new AI model of warfare now. Just an educated guess on my part, but I am not sure.

            EWO training used to be for officers who manned aircraft armed with nuclear weapons.

            Now since predictive programming and the AI modeling is underway, one might think EWO training incorporates that. It would be logical since many of the weapons are aerial and space-based.

      Out in the East Prefecture of Fukushima
      
I worked at the Daiichi Nuclear reactors


      Night time would find me in the control room

      Turbines would hum and the gauges would whirl

      Blue an bright where the fuel pools of Daiichi
      
Wicked and evil while casting their radiation spell


      The water was deep for these MOX fuel rods cooling
      
I was cautious, but in fear I could tell

      One day a wild Tsunami wave came rolling in

      Wilder than any West Texas wind

      
Dashing and tearing, water it was sharing

      With the wicked Reactors that I controlled

      So in fear

      
I was challenged for my right to harness these reactors

      Down went my hands to the control panel by my side


      My challenge was answered in less than a heartbeat

      Reactor rods lay melting on the containment vessel floor

      
For a moment I froze in fear silence

      Shocked what an evil criticality deed the tsunami had done


      Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there
      
I had but one chance and that was to run

      Out through the back door of Daiichi I ran
      
Out where the cars were parked

      
I found a fast one
      
It looked like it could run

      
Up on its seat and away I did drive

      Just as fast as I could

      
From the Fukushima Prefecture of Japan

      Out into the wasted lands of Tsunami debris

        Back in Daiichi my life would be worthless

        Everything's gone in life, nothing is left


        It's been not long since I've seen the blown up reactors
        
My heroism is stronger than my fear of death

        I gassed up and back I did drive

        Driving alone in the dark


        Maybe tomorrow Plutonium may find me

        Tonight nothing's worse than this Cesium pain in my heart

        And at last here I am
        
On the hill overlooking Daiichi
I can see Corium's black smoke below


        My stupidity is strong and it pushes me onward
        
Down off the hill to the reactor control room I go

        Off to my right I see five big Earthquake cracks

        Off to my left steam a dozen or more

        
Shouting and running I can't let #4 fuel pool burn
        
I have to make it to Daiichi's water supply

        Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel

        A deep burning pain in my side

        
Though I am trying to fill up the fuel pool

        I'm getting weary, unable to hang on

        But my love for Japan is strong
        
And I rise where I've fallen

        
Though I am weary I can't stop to rest
        
I see puff's of smoke from the containment vessel

        
I feel the Plutonium go deep in my chest

        From out of nowhere Strontium has found me

        Entering my bones as I kneel by the water supply

        
Cradled by two water pumps that I'de die for

        
There's only one drop of water , hu…manity…good…bye

            about a lost radioactive tool -
            September 15, 2012 at 9:32 am

            Out near the West Texas town of El Whacko
            I lost a rod that was nuclear hot.
            Searching for my lunch inside the big tool chest
            I set it down on the bed of the truck.

            I ate some ribs and had a few cold ones
            then I said to myself "Back to work I'd best get."
            Somewhat unthinking from smoking and drinking
            I forgot the rod 'neath an oily rag wet.

            Now there's a hunt on to find the poor ole son
            who was working the shift and transported that crap.
            My sense of justice and honor is stronger
            than my fear of being labelled a terrorist rat.

            So I've got a horse, a good one that can run
            and I'll try and recover that dangerous rod.
            Now here on the hill overlooking El Whacko
            I know the risk but feel my conscience prod.

            Off to my right I see Border patrol boys
            Homeland Security's off to the left
            National Guard's overhead in a chopper
            but I'll clear my name or I'll ride to my death.

            I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle
            I feel the bullet go deep in my chest.
            As I'm dying I pray they don't hurt my family
            and pay to them my life insurance at least.

            Spokesperson announces "There was never danger,
            the rod is recovered and so is the thief -
            a deranged from rad-noia former Texas Ranger,
            so folks in the County can sigh in relief."

      "We lied about meltdowns, It was a cover-up…"

      "I've done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I'm used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen."

      "trying to conceal the severity of what was unfolding from the public…"

      "What was missing was the cries of the seabirds which, on all previous similar voyages, had surrounded the boat."

      It has been a very well funded systematic conspiracy from the get go and purposeful throughout the entire current Zeitgeist Matrix.

      Remember if panic, anarchy and/or any revolt occurs creating disruption in money flow all those protectors for this current Zeitgeist Matrix have much/a great deal to loose.

      It has never been about protecting the trapped human livestock it has only had to do with the money they can remove from that same livestock by law/taxes, fees, fines or through ongoing tricks and conspiracy.

      Schools only get paid for teaching.. if a student by law..shows up.

      Children now = Money/dollar bills.

      Our entire system is based on corruption and theft and is now rampant at all levels of our culture and society.

            Had a friend open a restaurant and in order for that " capitalistic restaurant" to open he had to invest almost $70,000.00 to remodel the establishment to bring that building up to ADA compliance/code.

            He only rented this building from another capitalist whom owned the building and whom would not share in any of this expense..capitalism.

            Now when all was said and done and all the building improvements and sewers were redirected by the direction and required by county/city government, he asked for a health inspection prior to opening.

            The building was approximately 1500 square feet. The inspection took approximately 1/2 hour of the inspectors time. I worked in this industry for 12 years so I know how long such things take.

            His bill for a 1/2 hour inspection = $1150.00

            This huge bill did not include all the other fess and permits that were required to pull out the initial hammer.

            This is Capitalism! :)

            He ended up loosing $6,000 per month and after 2 years he then sold this loosing money pit.. to another Capitalist.

            In a capitalistic system if the money can be removed from the human livestock by force..it is removed.

          capitalism? Where the rich get richer at the expense of the masses. Everyone wants a free lunch. Exemplified by the grotesque monkey men at the stock exchange.

          Capitalism is a form of psychopathy where one is divorced from the consequences to others of your actions; wage labor, sweat shops, robber barons, money lenders, power of accumulated capital. It all ends the same; heartless exploitation of human animal and nature for the benefit of the few. Capitalism leads to political cronyism which has ended in global fascism. If the public owned its own water, grew its own food and had communal use of capital resource, they could easily overthrow the fascist state including the military by tax revolt. Alas they are too stupid to see the obvious.

          Neither man nor animal used the capitalist model before 1850…with its illusory darwinian free market belief. The peasants felt it was good after centuries of serfdom, trading one servile position for another. Capitalism isnt free, the system is controlled from the top

          "The initial usage of the term capitalism in its modern sense has been attributed to Louis Blanc in 1850 ('..what i call 'capitalism' that is to say the appropriation of capital by some to the exclusion of others') and Pierre-Joseph Proudhon in 1861 ('Economic and social regime in which capital, the source of income, does not generally belong to those who make it work through their labour.')"

      All the world religions explain what evil is.

      “…The problem of evil is a touchstone of any religion. From our direct confrontation with evil results suffering, and thus endless questions about the meaning of life. That is why all religions have to give a proper answer regarding the origin, nature and end of evil….

      [Christianity:] ” Evil appeared in the world of angels when Lucifer, one of God’s cherubs, rebelled against this order. In the book of the prophet Ezekiel we can read the following metaphorical description of this incident:

      “’You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.

        PJ, I'm not so sure Buddhists believe in evil. They do not believe in the duality which would allow evil to exist. All is an illusion, at least in some Buddhist sects.

          The dark side of Buddhism
          “…I have no doubt that Buddhist religious belief, as it was practised at the school, did a great deal of harm. Nowhere was this more in evidence than in the ramifications of the belief in karma. At first glance, karma is a lovely idea which encourages people to be good even when nobody is watching for the sake of happiness in a future life. It's a bit carrot-and-stickish, but so are a lot of the ways in which we get people to not routinely beat us up and take our stuff. Where it gets insidious is in the pall that it casts over our failures in this life. I remember one student who was having problems memorising material for tests. Distraught, she went to the monks who explained to her that she was having such trouble now because, in a past life, she was a murderous dictator who burned books, and so now, in this life, she is doomed to forever be learning challenged.
          “Not, "Oh, let's look at changing your study habits", but rather, "Oh, well, that's because you have the soul of a book-burning murderer."
          “To our ears, this sounds so over the top that it is almost amusing, but to a kid who earnestly believes that these monks have hidden knowledge of the karmic cycle, it is devastating. She was convinced that her soul was polluted and irretrievably flawed, and that nothing she could do would allow her to ever learn like the people around her. …

          “…2.2. Buddhism (Māra)
          About Buddhism
          “Many religions, typically Eastern religions such as Buddhism8 and Hinduism9, assert that everyone lives through a long succession of lives and that the material world and all conscious beings are separated from Nirvana. The cycle of rebirth (samsara) is a cycle of angst, pain and delusion, and only escape from the whole system can end suffering. To escape you need to attain enlightenment, and it is your desires, wants and carnal side that prevents this from happening, in Buddhism the being that represents the distractions of the real world is called Māra. The bad guys of the Buddhist the Pāli Canon are "dominated by the single figure of Māra" and long passages are devoted to this 'Evil One'10.
          “Reference to Māra in the Buddhist cannon, and its etymology, identify it with the very concept of death (and life, and consciousness, and all other Earthly things). "It is connexion with death, but particularly the overcoming of death, that Māra is often mentioned in the Canon. In this context death is always regarded as an evil, the unwelcome Antaka, the ender of an existence which is not ready to be ended"11. Māra represents darkness and blindness12 and all the sensory pleasures13. The full extent of Māra's power is utterly formidable to everyone except those on the verge of enlightenment, and is generally formidable even to those who have been following the eightfold-path for some time:…

            “Put into Māra's mouth in the Kassaka Sutta:
            'Mine, recluse, is the eye, mine are material shapes, mine is the field of visual consciousness. Where can you go, recluse, to escape from me? Precisely mine, recluse, are the ear, sounds, the field of auditory consciousness; the tongue, tastes, the field of gustatory consciousness; the body, touches, the field of tactile consciousness; precisely mine, recluse, is the mind, mine are the mental states, mine is the field of mental consciousness.'
            “All these claims of Māra are conceded by the Buddha: 'Precisely yours, Malign One, is all this. But where there is none of this, there is no coming in for you.' [...] What emerges from these definitions is a conception of the whole of samsāric existence as the realm over which Māra rules. [...] In terms of Buddhist cosmology this is a way of referring to the whole of life apart from [Nirvana]. [...]
            “Enumerated in detail in the Suttanipāta [Māra's forces] consist of passion, aversion, hunger and thirst, craving, sloth and torpor, fear, doubt, self-will, cant, and various forms of self-exaltation. Prominent among these, and specially closely connected with Māra is the first, passion (kāma, or rāga).”

    The Corium Coverup

    Still waters in containment ruins tell the tale:
    There is no corium inside the Containment of Reactors 1-3.
    The big corium coverup is an argument over how large a hole the corium made in the concrete at the bottom of the containment vessels.
    Nothing is being said, except here, of corium ex-reactor-building.
    The lie is that corium is "contained" by structures inside the buildings.

    Wanna see some lawsuits?
    Wait until the Pacific Ocean fishing industry realizes that the cause behind the sudden collapse of commercial seafood populations is Fukushima radiation is corium which set in the middle of an underground river for 5 years, while Tepco/Japan covered up the "meltout".

    Da Yoopers wanna know:

      While it may not be attributed to Fukushima, YET. It is without a doubt attributed to other man released toxins and dumping into the ocean. The entire ocean is sick and dying fast. Unspeakable things are being dumped into the oceans all around the globe, every second.

      The countless chemicals, and debris that washed back into the pacific from Fukushima, without the radiation, was enough to taint the Pacific forever. Even The Gulf Of Mexico will never be the same in our lifetime.

      The creator may be done with this planet for now, humans have offended our maker. 5 years ago, I personally had some hope for the future of mankind here. One thing that could give hope now is compassionate aliens coming to fix everything wrong, but that may mean ridding of the destructive human race.

      If we live long enough, we will be teaching future generations about the time not long ago, when Whales and countless other amazing creatures lived in the waters. If some of mankind survives 50 years, highly unlikely, its going to be a lonely place on planet earth, basically hell. I doubt any of us will want to be here wandering aimless among the abandoned cities, Nukes and chemical plants, etc. It will take world wide armies of people to repair the planets ecosystem, NOW, not later. Instead we have world wide armies prepared to do battle against other humans, while leaving devastation in its wake. Its really like that, its a disgrace to creation:(

    Is the Pacific Ocean magically recovered? No and it will never be. Even 1 million years after man has annihilated himself from the face of this planet will there be cleansing from this on technological disaster. You can say your sorry all you want but it accomplishes absolutely nothing. The Pacific Ocean will die and soon after the whole planet.

    You are very right.
    The cesium in the sea is also on the land.
    Crops concentrate radionuclides.

    Sadly, California grapes also concentrate nuclides.
    My CA Chardonnay has cesium lurking in the wine?
    Michigan wine is better.
    But only a little.

    Citizen labs should now be cataloging the nuclides in our foods, and tracing those nuclides as they concentrate up the food chain.

    Yeah right!

    "Apart from cooling, the basic ongoing task was to prevent release of radioactive materials, particularly in contaminated water leaked from the three units. This task became newsworthy in August 2013.
    There have been no deaths or cases of radiation sickness from the nuclear accident, but over 100,000 people were evacuated from their homes to ensure this. Government nervousness delays the return of many.
    Official figures show that there have been well over 1000 deaths from maintaining the evacuation, in contrast to little risk from radiation if early return had been allowed."

    ARTICLE HISTORY
    PRINT SHARE
    The head of Tokyo Electric Power Co. apologized Tuesday over his predecessor’s order to not use the term “core meltdown” to describe the situation at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant in the early days of the March 2011 crisis.

    “It is extremely regrettable. People are justified in thinking it as a coverup,” Tepco President Naomi Hirose said at a news conference in Tokyo.

    The remarks came after a report published last Thursday said that then-President Masataka Shimizu instructed a vice president, who was taking part in a news conference on March 14, 2011, not to use “core meltdown” to describe the states of the reactors.

    Tepco reported to authorities on March 14, based on a computer simulation, that the event damaged 25 to 55 percent of the fuel rods, but the utility did not say it constituted a meltdown, the report said.

    The company’s internal manual defined a meltdown as damage to more than 5 percent of the fuel.

    The utility used the less serious phrase “core damage” for two months after the disaster began. In May 2011, Tepco finally used “meltdown.”

    The report suggested that efforts were made to make the nuclear crisis look less severe than it actually was at a time when attention was riveted on the condition of the six-reactor complex following a massive earthquake and tsunami that devastated northeastern Japan on March 11, 2011.

    The utility said it will cut Hirose’s salary by 10 percent for a month…

      I've been busy and just read the ABC article. Nick, I was going to post about that point, and you are the first person to comment about that. Ten percent. Yes, that is what caught my eye.

      "Hirose said he will take a 10 percent pay cut, and another executive will take a 30 percent cut, for one month each to take responsibility.

      For ONE MONTH? That's it? What the hell? How little value they place on people's lives!

      Well, that should about clinch the case for the contaminated crew of the USS Reagan. I hope a court of justice awards true justice. If I were the judge I would hang them with the money saved on their salaries. Ought to buy a lot of strong rope. I'd give the sailors 10 percent of TEPCO's profits for 1000 years.

    It is not just Meltdown that is being toyed with…so too is the phrase Cold Shut down:

    http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/news/Blogs/nuclear-reaction/redefining-cold-shutdown-doesnt-hide-the-trut/blog/38472/

    "Fukushima will likely go down in history as the biggest cover-up of the 21st Century. Governments and corporations are not leveling with citizens about the risks and dangers; similarly, truth itself, as an ethical standard, is at risk of going to shambles as the glue that holds together the trust and belief in society’s institutions. Ultimately, this is an example of how societies fail.

    Tens of thousands of Fukushima residents remain in temporary housing more than four years after the horrific disaster of March 2011. Some areas on the outskirts of Fukushima have officially reopened to former residents, but many of those former residents are reluctant to return home because of widespread distrust of government claims that it is okay and safe.

    Part of this reluctance has to do with radiation’s symptoms. It is insidious because it cannot be detected by human senses. People are not biologically equipped to feel its power, or see, or hear, touch or smell it (Caldicott). Not only that, it slowly accumulates over time in a dastardly fashion that serves to hide its effects until it is too late."

    Age-Dependent Thyroid Absorbed Doses for Radiobiologically Significant Radioisotopes of Iodine.

    Post-Chernobyl

    Abstract
    Among the radioiodines produced in fission of 235U, only 131I [(T1/2)p = 8.04 d], 132I (2.3 h), 133I (20.3 h), and 135I (6.7 h) may undergo significant environmental dispersion.

    Age-dependent thyroid absorbed dose estimates for these radiobiologically significant radioiodines and for the medical radioisotopes 123I (13.2 h) and 125I (60 d) have been derived, incorporating the effect of absorption following inhalation or ingestion. This effect has generally been ignored in previously derived estimates of radioiodine absorbed doses to the thyroid. Based on the latest ICRP lung and GUT models, inhaled radioiodine is absorbed at a rate of 0.175 h-1 and exhaled at 0.101 to 0.118 h-1 (depending on age) and ingested radioiodine is..Completely Absorbed In The Stomach.

    In other words, there is a solid connection to radiation exposure and the gut. I find this information [known since 1950] startling as Thyroid is always touted as a 'target' organ concerning radioactive release/medicine. That may well be, but gut health actually regulates the whole body.

    It would be prudent, though a little late, to focus on maximum digestive health. Please read my next post.

    Radiation Protection Nutrition

    Contrary to what many people believe, radiation is far more toxic than any chemical, pesticide or other poisonous substance. Why? Any form of energy sufficient to break a chemical bond can produce free radicals.

    It is important to know that the absorption of toxic substances is inhibited in well nourished children and adults, and increased in malnourished people, including those who eat processed (junk), commercial foods.

    "Each electron emitted by a radioactive nucleus has several million electron volts of energy, “sufficient to disrupt millions of organic molecules in living cells. Thus, radioactive isotope which concentrate in specific organic (such as iodine 131 in the thyroid gland) are much more damaging than ordinary chemical toxins such as lead or teratogens such as thalidomide.”

    "Just a few months ago, back in November of last year, the entire state of California placed an indefinite ban on crab fishing, ultimately putting their entire commercial crab season on hold in the process due to what state officials claim as ”dangerously high levels of algal toxins in the bodies of the crabs.”
    “Crab is an important part of California’s culture and economy, and I did not make this decision lightly,” Charlton H. Bonham, the fish and wildlife agency director, said in a statement. “But doing everything we can to limit the risk to public health has to take precedence.”
    Reportedly, they are placing the ban to protect the health of their people, but unfortunately, it turns out that the explanation that the state gave isn’t really the truth after news broke out that in fact, the ban was passed because of the radioactivity stemming from the 2011 Fukushima Nuclear Disaster and what they were really trying to protect was the “health,” so to speak, of the California seafood industry.
