    That's OK…the wealthy are assured to be taken care of in Malaysia. Screw the children! Investors plan for ‘little Japan’ in JB http://imcmsimages.mediacorp.sg/CMSFileserver/documents/006/PDF/20120319/1903WNC020.pdf

    City Number Three, New Japan. Remember the comment on filing charges against the Japanese government and TEPCO officials –they need to start with the little Japan builders…

    Is this stuff "soot" from all the incernators burning radioactive debris?

  • NoNukes NoNukes

    When you watch the Fukushima webcams, you can see clouds of black dust emerging from the reactors, especially reactor 4 and reactor 3.

    I remember the first time I saw the black cloud emerge from reactor 4, it was like a horror show, but to read that it ends up where children go to school is even more of a nightmare.

    Here are just a few videos by the amazing Nuckelchen, I still haven't found the early ones that I remember:

    March 7 Black Clouds:





    Thank you nuckelchen!

      I appreciate the "Hat Tip". I am very interested in what is being said on the local news program that is linked above. Does anyone know how we can get english subtitles added to that video?

    HP had an article on this not to long ago with an image that showed suited people taking readings…
    I posted:
    Notice in the great images that those working with the Black G☢☢ are wearing full suits and face masks while the locals have no such equipment of their own!

    Rule of thumb: If responders are wearing equipment then “civilians” should not be told that the area is OK and safe, especially for their children which are far more vulnerable to radioactive exposure!

    Question where did this Black G☢☢ come from and more importantly where was it before it was found on the asphalt, in someone else’s yard, a home or was there more of it that got inhaled as dust???

      Black Stuff Might Be A Scientific Field Test.

      "Development of high affinity biosorbents by surface display of metal binding proteins"

      "The project is to develop profit oriented economically feasible to implement by all metal handling industries including DAE establishments for the treatment of low and medium level metal containing effluents and nuclear wastes using enhanced whole-cell biosorption technology. It is aimed at to proceed from the proof-of concept to "field testing stage." The development of such an efficient and affordable technology for nuclear waste treatment is essential. In this project we will develop a technology for the display of metal binding proteins at the cell surface of "cyanobacteria." The strains will be tested for immobilization for the development of bioreactor to remove the radioactive and non-radioactive metal from industrial effluents. The process parameters will be optimized for scaling up. The proposed project may provide a cost effective, quick and more metal binding capacity and it will find an essential alternative method for online treatment in DAE and metal handling industries for safe discharge of wastewater."


      Cyanobacteria; This is Blue/Green Algae. Also Known As The Black Stuff.

    i think as the reports come in…and show the black material..in a wide spread area..this is not blue algae.

      I cannot believe that it would not take long for a REAL professional to determine what this Black G☢☢ is or at least rule out what it is not!

      For All We Know Rose, They Could Be Speading This Stuff With Cropdusters. They Might Be Hoping It Will Perminently Bind With The Radioactive Metals And Then Get Flushed Away When It Rains. The Problem Is Puddles Collecting The Cyanobacteria And Concentrating Them In One Spot Where They Dry And Can Blow Around.
      Think Of It As Weaponizing Low Level Radiation By Turning It Into High Alfa Emiting Dust. Easy To Breath In And Kill You.

      My thoughts, no more than that, were that it is a variety of same that [has been created or bred, or has naturally developed in the circumstances] to form an affinity with something that came out of the nuke explosions. It could be a new variety of cyanobacteria. It could have an affinity for magnetism.

      Whatever, the fact that it exists, that it is unusual and new, is radioactive and has magnetic properties, all this means that it is food for scientific curiosity.

      Which begs the question: why has it not been investigated, analysed?

      And the other question: what are its contents, why are they not published?

      In the absence of answers to the above it is not unreasonable to suspect bad news covered.

    Here's A Great Line From Enformable;

    "Weak regulation set the stage for the nuclear meltdown… Weak regulation set the stage for the BP spill… Weak regulation set the stage for the financial meltdown…

    But don’t even ask if a pattern is emerging, it’s not. The regulators have assured us that safety is still priority number one."
