Fairewinds board member Chiho Kaneko from Iwate Prefecture discussing her recent trip to northeastern Japan: It’s the reality that Northern Japan, not just in Fukushima, Northern Japan is contaminated. That’s the reality, and people are transporting the contaminants whenever they travel elsewhere. They’re bringing with them. […]

So what’s happening is there’s a gradual and constant dispersing and spreading of radioactive materials, inadvertently. Nobody wants to do it, but we are doing it. That’s a really creepy, macabre feeling I had when I was in Japan.

  • Its worse than that, the northern hemisphere has been blasted with radiation, before the EPA cut off the data, here is undeniable proof

    My proprietary work indicates that the massive increase in airborne uranium through the Pacific and West Cost can only mean one thing….tens of tons of uranium were aerosolized. In fact, with heavy metal fallout over the ocean, it is hard to imagine that less than the whole core and fuel pool were both launched. see here

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      And how many tons of uranium released, stock, if it's true SPF #4 and the CSFP both burned?

      I think the amount of plutonium released, based on the former, would double the 8,000 billion grams of death already floating around in our lungs. Do double the uranium?

      • Time Is Short Time Is Short

        Corr: Does is double the uranium? Or greater? The CSFP was quite large and significantly packed with rods.

      • Well think about it, my data is based on airborne particulate measured thousands of miles from the source. Since uranium and plutonium are heavy metals, much of the particulates may have dropped into the ocean.

        The actual numbers of tons of uranium could be quite a bit higher than I calculated, double, sure.

      Recently tested an Alert level +++ cloth rain swabs collected at a private monitoring station on the east coast of northern New South Wales Australia. They were collected in late January, during a flooding rain event that had come down the east coast of Australia, from the tropics.

      Traces of U-235 were detected in this test. We are all looking for cesium strontium, and plutonium etc., when the largest single isotope contaminant released by this nuclear disaster by mass is refined uranium. This is not the only test here where we have detected small traces of U-235. If we are detecting U-235, it means there is at least 97% more U-238 present. The scintillator equipment used for this testing is a gamma detector only.

      Here is the test chart results of these rain swabs.

        U-238 produces a small amount of gamma at 50 (0.06%) & 114 (0.01%) keV and X-rays at 16 & 12 Kev. U-235 puts out a lot more gamma at 186 (57%), 144 (11%) and 163 (5%) kev and X-rays at 89 and 93 keV.

        This is probably the reason I was unable to detect U-238 directly at these low levels, when it has such a low gamma output? This brings us back to increasing Radon levels, as the biggest contributor to increasing background levels here.

        If there is a lot more Uranium aerosol in the atmosphere, it would explain the increasing frequency of large radon decay daughter washout detections, worldwide by people using Geiger counters.

        Radon gas is a product of the Uranium decay chain.

        • vital1 vital1

          Increasing radon levels are a health concern. Radon is the second largest cause of lung cancer after smoking.

          Most of these worldwide rain swab test reports could be very high Radon daughter washout events, even so, at these multi uSv/hr levels of radiation being detected, it maybe advisable to keep children and pets, out of the rain. Rain washout events like this can be very localized. Just because happening one location, doesn't mean it will occur at your location. Radon wash out decays quickly, over hours, most of it has decayed. With large multi uSv/hr rain washout detections, it will take a lot longer before the Radon decay daughters decay to near normal background levels.

          Unless further tests are done, there is no way of knowing if other longer lived isotopes are also present. If you, a child or a pet gets wet, it would be advisable to have a shower as soon as possible, and wash hair and body thoroughly. Also, just after an event like this, it would be wise to wash any vegetables, herbs and fruit well, if picked from your garden. If you use tank water, it is suggested that the water passes through a good carbon, or better, type water filter before use.

  • We Not They Finally

    We listened to the video of the Japanese woman who visited northern Japan. We found the level of denial APPALLING. "We don't know who is responsible"? Her litany of SOCIAL concerns about people going back to their homes? The mothers are more vocal [just] "because they are the link to life"? "Some groceries test some of their foods but a lot of people aren't concerned." She's worried that radioactivity is spread by (not ongoing massive spewing!, but)individual travel? Like her report was a TRAVELOGUE? And not one trace of outrage or open anguish? This was PAINFUL to listen to, and not because she is facing reality, but because she isn't!! This passive compiant culture is DYING, physically DYING, and the radioactivity is massively spewing out more and more each day. Tell these people to run for their live, Ms. Kaneko! Get out of your bland restrained denial and SHOUT!! Painful to listen to. Just painful. Arnie Gundersen should NOT be featuring her. Surely SOMEONE Japanese can get the reality out into the world better than this.

  • We Not They Finally

    Glad to see someone else writing about the URANIUM in the air. No, cesium is NOT the only contaminant. Mr. Kaneko/ THere are close to 2,000 dangerous radioactive contaminants being released massively again and again as we speak. We read that they are even finding uranium in people's urine in Hawaii. Is all of Japan as PASSIVE as this woman on the video sounds? God help these people, but they need to SCREAM.

  • We Not They Finally

    The true treat to the world is the nuclear industries and their victims the Oceans and the food chain and the water and atmosphere of our sick and dying planet….It is getting more and more difficult to survive in an enviroment that is poisoned and being more and more contaminated day by day…Take your heads out of the sand and act now…Demand that the world turn away from the use of nuclear energy.We opened the Pandoras box and the end is on its way…

    Highly dangerous nuclear fallout is continually circling the earth. And all for nothing.

    I don't know if the guest Chiho suffers from fatalism or not. She does have an excellent vocabulary and expresses herself well and aligned with the dirt-delivering-to-TEPCO activist. She also presents the sad reality of Fukushima fallout. Subtle but effective.

    I think the only thing to advertise after the fact of (3) meltdowns is to move away from any fallout areas to another part of the island another part of the world. Don't have children? Quit your homeland? Don't eat? Don't breathe? Don't live? She can't undo what has been done and in her own way is informing the uninformed of facts. Same with Mochizuki @fukushimadiary.

    The same fallout event occurred here in the US to a lesser degree.

    This is another presentation of the truth … in a uniquely Japanese way … she is understated, not hysterical … Japanese people are different … but no less susceptible to ionizing radiation …

    life is a crap shoot … but there can be no defense ever, at all, for those who add to the burden of background radiation … this truth is now clear and will spread rapidly among the people …

    people don't really want to know how bad Fukushima is … so we must break them to it gently, if possible, not lose our temper … have some fun in your more radioactive area … leave if you can … but spread the word about the utter stupidity of this whole nuclear power hoax … as if we have just pulled back the curtain on some perverted Wizard of Oz … who is really nothing but a big fat lie, a neutered scientist bought and paid for by corrupt money men, in the halls of American business (GE, etc.)

    peace as ever to the 'newsers … and keep it comin' … the nuclear age is past … bring on the 'Brooklyn Project' to bury the evil farce brought to life by the Manhattan Project …

    Come on Barry! You can do it, bro'.

    “in meetings with scientists, he asked..about radioactive fallout. ‘Where would we be if testing had continued at the 1958 rate?’ he asked Dr. Charles Dunham, director of the Atomic Energy Commission’s Division of Biology and Medicine. ‘Civilized man would have been in trouble,’ Dunham said. ‘How does the radioactive fallout get to the earth?’ he asked his science advisor, Jerome Wiesner. ‘The clouds are washed out by rain,’ answered Wiesner. Kennedy looked out..into the garden. It was a rainy day and he asked: ‘You mean it’s in the rain out there?’ ‘Yes’ Wiesner said… Kennedy did not speak for a long time.” [pp226-227] President Kennedy, Profile of Power, R.Reeves

    It's creepy how long they've known.
