Long before the disastrous nuclear accidents at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, physicist Yuko Fujita [former Keio University associate professor] warned that doomsday was coming.


“My effort to prevent a Chernobyl-level disaster in Japan ended in failure, but Japan’s handling of the accident is far worse than the Soviet Union’s reaction to Chernobyl,” he said.


he conducted field research in Russia in the early 1990s


The Soviet Union evicted all residents from highly contaminated areas within a 300-kilometer radius, while providing them with housing, employment and welfare measures, Fujita said.

“At the time, I thought it was outrageous,” Fujita said. “But it is far more conscionable than what this country is doing–deceiving people into staying, taking advantage of their attachment to their homeland.”

If Japan takes evacuation measures equivalent in scale to that following the Chernobyl disaster, it will need to relocate several millions of people in this densely populated country, Fujita said.

“It probably means that this country will go bankrupt,” Fujita said.

    The final cost of this disaster has been estimated to be TEN TRILLION dollars.

    How can any country afford that? Japan already had a debt load higher than Greece. Strangely enough though, we never hear about that.

    It is always the Europeans that are in the news around too much debt, but NEVER Japan..

    I wonder why that is?

    • yogda yogda

      Ten Trillion IMO is a conservative estimate.

      Look into what transpired in Iceland regarding debt and the central bank. Yes very sad these things go unreported!

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      Japan gets its' share of financial press:


      Japan is more of a slow descent into the abyss. Europe is descending at a much faster rate, and will probably be the next big financial explosion.

      There are some big players, such as Kyle Bass, that have shorted Japan to the max. The nuclear disaster hasn't really hit the global markets yet, but it's only a matter of time. Keep an eye on global food prices. If anyone makes a strong link between the drought and radiation, it's off to the races.

      • BreadAndButter BreadAndButter

        I don't think this year's drought is caused by radiation…

        • arclight arclight

          hey bnb
          the climate change atmospheric testing project of europe in may was manipulated by the nuke companies.. all the reactors went into stealth mode under the flight path of the project..

          so, maybe isotopes are causing weather effects? and its being covered up?
          remember the european reactor emmissions in june were ridiculously high! starting on june 1 2012 . one day after the atmospheric project had finished..??

          i also think that the northern hemisphere winds were speeded up and thats why we got lenticular clouds across the northern hemisphere last summer (the northern winds had speeded up imo)

          and dont get me started on the possible thermal issues on cooling these hot beasties..


          oh and tornadoes last year and strange rainfall too! 😉

          • BreadAndButter BreadAndButter

            Morning arc, I still don't think we should link worldwide droughts & crazy weather to radiation. Big Oil would be delighted to hear that.

            • arclight arclight

              funny you should mention big oil.. corexit in the norway sea?? from the gulf? the big oil report didnt talk details but did mention that using corexit was likely a bad idea..

              cant find any links to the gulf and weather…. 🙂
              let me do a quick googlies! lol!
              actually.. err gulf stream interupted/effected??
              poosible effects on nortwestern european climate.. (its too cold when there is no sun.. little proper warm weather.. early mornings and late nights too cool/chilly..

              im not being argumentitive or anything though and will retreat from this off topic post and await more data.. lol!

              14 April 1989

              [excerpt from the article on a previous study]:

              The Spring 1992 issue of Journal of Orgonomy (1) carried a paper by James DeMeo describing research undertaken in 1990-1991 on the California drought, with a "Special Note on Underground Nuclear Testing and the Oakland Wildfires" that bears repeating here:

              Weather Response to Nuclear Testing

              In prior articles, I discussed a possible connection between underground nuclear bomb testing in Nevada to weather changes in the Western US.(2) A graph was published showing changes in 500 mb pressure over Nevada and Montana in 1990, with a generalized association with nuclear tests. Nuclear testing appeared to have increased atmospheric pressure in the upper atmosphere, a possible factor in the expansion of high-pressure drought conditions in the West.

              It's the Krypton-90. Also the weather wars caused by the different ionospheric heaters in different countries. Russia has been attacking us for years. Russia also took credit for the 3/11 earthquake in Japan.

                Also as the north melts, there is more methane released into the air.

                Why in the World Are They Spraying
                Geo-engineering and Weather Control

                There are only nine more days before this long-awaited documentary will be released and, judging by the flood of responses from our first two announcements, the public is finally taking this topic seriously. Created by Michael Murphy and Barry Kolsky, this is a follow up to What in the World Are They Spraying, the video that awakened millions of people around the world to the reality that, despite official denials, we ARE being systematically sprayed with an array of toxic chemicals, including aluminum, barium, and strontium. This new program tackles the obvious question: Why would anyone want to do that?

                WEATHER CONTROL
                Surprisingly, the answers are not difficult to find. The first is that these metallic nano-particles in the stratosphere make it possible to, literally, control the weather, which is a high military priority for many countries, including the US. Scientists are quick to assure the public that their only concern is to combat so-called global warming, but military applications provide a more realistic motivation.

                A secondary motivation is strictly financial. In this documentary you will learn about something called Weather Derivatives that are traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

                • Time Is Short Time Is Short

                  Corporations and a few wealthy individuals are buying hedges against bad weather as a sort of insurance policy to compensate for loss of crops due to droughts and floods. If they can covertly control the weather, they can make a fortune by being able to either cause a catastrophe or avert one, depending on which side of the bet they are invested. There is much more to the story, but this will give you an idea of the scope and seriousness of this inquiry.

                  Your friends who still think that chemtrails are just water vapor will be stunned by the revelations in this program.

      Europe gets "austerity measures" (ie serfdom) Japan gets genocide. the first US citizen to be caught with DHS drones gets jail for letting his cows loose, criminal bankers walk free and continue with their "economic stimulus". seems normal to me / cynicism


    So wonderful to see someone of 'letters', giving us an unvarnished account of NRC/UN/US/EU/IAEA/TEPGOV's betrayal.

    It really is true; truth is stranger than fiction. Imagine the remnants of the Soviet Union showing concern for the welfare of their citizens, while the international community sits back and watches. It's so obvious that globalism is an abject failure; at least, the globalism as envisioned by these self-professed 'holy ones'. Hopefully, real humans will be able to sit down someday and hammer-out a genuine vision for a global community…

      They won't find a global community until they get a handle on greed.

      " Hopefully, real humans will be able to sit down someday and hammer-out a genuine vision for a global community…". Please, please, please! My fingers are so crossed I think I can hear them cracking.


        one (of a few) fundamental law in nature is: don't ask for permission to exist. Seems simple enough. But in a world filled with so-much destructive behavior, there's a tendency towards complacency. Such resignation dooms all.

        You have the very framework you'd need to come together (this telecommunications medium) to develop universal principles that all rational entities would accept. If you're not strong enough, join together in greater numbers.

        Keep it simple (in principle) and restrain the development of succeeding principles to their predecessors. If the right to exist is fundamental to all, then no where down the road can you accept the purposeful destruction of others. What you gain as a species far exceeds perceived losses.

        Welcome all towards the realization of a future that is now…

    Its just amazing how cavalier the people who hold this power in their hands are..
    Nuclear power is pandora's box.. And it was opened at Fukushima.

  • Sol Man

    We have many Pandora's box situations around the world because of the close link of the governments and the nuclear industry. But, what we really need is people with a new vision of how to live by generating energy from means other than C or nuclear based. There is some good work going on with inexpensive and chemically-friendly cracking of water. Right now, though, we have no guarantees, as we have to somehow get through the Fukushima dilemma that is upon all of us. Governments of the world come together to help Japan in the hour of need! Freely give assistance so the entire world will benefit!
