KKFX FOX 11 transcript, Apr 22, 2017: A local rescue group is getting flooded with calls about sick or dead sea lions showing up on Santa Barbara beaches… Sick and confused, dozens of sea lions are appearing on Santa Barbara beaches with signs of brain damage. Samuel Dover, Channel Islands Marine & Wildlife Institute: “Normally we see injured animals about 1 or 2 here or there… Last Friday we got over 100 calls per day about sea lions in distress.”

KSBY, Apr 26, 2017: Marine mammals statewide becoming infected with brain-rotting toxinA high number of marine mammals in California are falling victim to a brain-rotting toxin… In Santa Barbara County, rescue centers are reporting hundreds of cases. With this outbreak potentially spreading, the Marine Mammal Center in Morro Bay is stocking up on medicine… scientists will be keeping a close eye on what’s happening with these mammals to monitor how else it will affect the marine food chain.

Ventura County Star, Apr 20, 2017: “Friday, we started getting inundated. The floodgates opened,” said [Dover]… Authorities say unusually high numbers of stranded or dead marine mammals and birds have shown up in spots throughout the Southern California coast in recent weeks. Federal and state agencies are working to document the scope of affected wildlife and mortalitiestests are underway to determine the cause of illness and death… they become sick, suffer from seizures and brain damage… The CIMWI hotline started getting about 100 calls on Friday and pretty much every day since, Dover said… [D]olphins have been impacted… Domoic acid poisoning is something he sees year after year, but not to the degree that’s happening right now. “This is the worst year we have ever seen,” Dover said. Beachgoers also have reported large numbers of dead and dying birds… Dover asked that those calling also understand that the agencies have been inundated.

Ventura County Reporter, Apr 26, 2017: Since the beginning of April, beachgoers have reported numerous sightings of discombobulated sea lions and sickly birds… “It has been pretty intense,” said [California State University, Channel Islands, Assistant Professor of Biology Allison Alvarado,] “It was like thousands of birds were being found”… Though domoic acid poisoning is suspected, the exact cause is not as yet determined[R]eports of unusual numbers of dead or sick animals along the coast stretch from as far north as Goleta and as far south as Malibu…

Santa Barbara Independent, Apr 25, 2017: Since the beginning of April, Julia Parker has seen 216 sick pelagic birds come into the Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network. There were only four in February, and three in March… Many more have been found dead on nearby beaches. Pelagic birds live their lives on the ocean. “They only beach themselves if there’s something wrong: if… they’re emaciated and starving,” explained Parker, the network’s Director of Animal Affairs. A large number of the birds found in April displayed neurological symptoms… It’s not just birds… on April 21, “we started getting inundated with calls — 100 calls per day” reporting sea lions stranded on the beaches, said Sam Dover, a veterinarian who runs [Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institute]… In the last two weeks, they’ve also seen six beached dolphins, all dead or dying… It’s likely that animal populations further north could be affected in the coming weeks

AOL, Apr 23, 2017: Most years, conservationists might see one death from the illness.

CBS LA transcript, Apr 11, 2017: [Pacific Marine Mammal Center] only had 1 or 2 cases last year.

From last week: Mass die-off ongoing along US West Coast — Experts: ‘Unknown’ organisms eating away brains, hearts… New infection never seen before (VIDEOS)

      Light-Dependent Electrogenic Activity of Cyanobacteria

      Cyanobacteria account for 20–30% of Earth's primary photosynthetic productivity and convert solar energy into biomass-stored chemical energy at the rate of ∼450 TW [1]. These single-cell microorganisms are resilient predecessors of all higher oxygenic phototrophs and can be found in self-sustaining, nitrogen-fixing communities the world over, from Antarctic glaciers to the Sahara desert [2].

      …Solar energy reaches the Earth at the rate of the 178,000 TW [8] of which 0.2% to 0.3% is harnessed by cyanobacteria [1]. The amount of energy that passes through cyanobacteria exceeds by more than 25 times the energy demand of human society (∼15 TW); roughly 1,000 times the energy produced by all the nuclear plants on Earth. On a global scale, cyanobacteria fix an estimated 25 Giga tons of carbon from CO2 per year into energy dense biomass [1], [9]. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether cyanobacteria possess light-dependent electrogenic activity (i.e. are capable of depositing electrons to the extracellular environment in response to illumination), to test whether the electrogenic activity is generic and to probe the mechanism of the electrogenic response. …

    Environmental pollution with heavy metals, produced by mining, processes of metallurgy and other chemical industries is a worldwide problem to human health and environment because of their high concentrations in the biological food chains and long term presence in the ecosystems. Due to the increase in concentration of different kinds of heavy metals, there is an urgent need of finding means for sustainable remediation of pollutant heavy metals. Spirulina platensis, a cyanobacterium, contains rich percentage of photosynthetic pigments and protein used in cosmetics, pharmaceutical and medicinal purpose all through the world. At the same time it is reported to be tolerant to certain kinds of heavy metals. In the present study, tolerance of S. platensis was assessed for Cobalt and Chromium, by exposing it to different concentrations of the two heavy metals (2, 4 and 6 ppm). This is vivid that Spirulina platensis is highly tolerant to the ascending concentrations of heavy metals and absorbs them in aquatic media. This approves the usage of Spirulina as useful tool for the elimination of heavy metals from the environment.

      Energy Department-Funded Scientists Decode DNA of Bacterium that Cleans Up Uranium Contamination and Generates Electricity

      WASHINGTON, DC – Department of Energy-funded researchers have decoded and analyzed the genome of a bacterium with the potential to bioremediate radioactive metals and generate electricity. In an article published in the December 12th issue of Science, researchers at The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, report that Geobacter sulfurreducens possesses extraordinary capabilities to transport electrons and “reduce” metal ions as part of its energy-generating metabolism.

      “The genome of this tiny microorganism may help us to address some of our most difficult cleanup problems and to generate power through biologically-based energy sources,” Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham said. “Geobacter is an important part of Nature's toolbox for meeting environmental and energy challenges. This genome sequence and the additional research that it makes possible may lead to new strategies and biotechnologies for cleaning up groundwater at DOE and at industry sites.”

      • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

        The contamination of groundwater with radionuclides and metals is one of the most challenging environmental problems at Department of Energy former nuclear weapons production sites. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts have previously found that Geobacter species can precipitate a wide range of radionuclides and metals (including uranium, technetium and chromium) from groundwater, preventing them from migrating to wells or rivers where they may pose a risk to humans and the environment.

        The analysis of the genome sequence revealed a number of capacities that had not been previously suspected from past research on this microbe. “We’ve provided a comprehensive picture that has led to fundamental changes in how scientists evaluate this microbe,” said Barbara Methe, the TIGR researcher who led the genome project and is the first author of the Science paper. “Research based on genome data has shown that this microbe can sense and move towards metallic substances, and in some cases can survive in environments with oxygen.” G. sulfurreducens was previously thought to be an anaerobic organism.

          … …
          Geobacter microbes are widely distributed in nature and are commonly found in subsurface environments contaminated with radionuclides and metals. Researchers have demonstrated that if they “feed” the microbes simple carbon sources such as acetate they will grow faster and precipitate more radionuclides and metals. These findings are now serving as the basis for a test of a bioremediation strategy aimed at removing uranium from groundwater at a Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Action site near Rifle, Colorado

        This is totally untrue. The reactors at Fukushima Daiichi failed many, many safety checks and the results were falsified. Mox was put in unit #3, but that reactor was never designed for MOX fuel and GE engineers had resigned years earlier because it was never a safe design to begin with.

        Reactor #4 had a crack before there was ever any fuel put in and should never have been put into service. In addition, reactor #4 was in process of having MOX fuel loaded into a reactor that had never been designed for MOX fuel and was never manufactured properly.

        The cooling pipes all burst with the earthquake because of the severe design flaw and the site and the rectors were never designed to withstand a 9.0 earthquake.

        The earthquake occurred because of a confluence of a number of factors: the moon, HAARP, CERN, 3 faults coming together, heavy rain in India had put additional stress on the dams there and the earthquake faults.

    …Alison Katz, who claims: “We are absolutely convinced that if the consequences of nuclear radiation were known to the public, the debate about nuclear power would end tomorrow. In fact, if the public knew, it would probably be excluded immediately as an energy option.”

    Ms Katz worked inside the WHO for 18 years. She insists that WHO, in cahoots with IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency), dangerously misrepresents the inherent dangers of ionizing radiation, an insinuation that smacks in the face with egregiousness galore.

    2) WHO does not issue independent reports on radiation issues. All nuclear-related reports are written by IAEA but published “in the name of the WHO.”

    Once again, with emphasis: There is no independent international authority reporting to the public on nuclear radiation…. none whatsoever. All information about nuclear radiation ultimately comes from the primary users/promoters of nuclear power even though they have a very big heavy axe to grind.

    Even though “ionizing radiation is mutagenic and always causes mutations, causing damage at the cellular level, there are no molecular biologists working in the ICRP” (Katz). Thus, the world’s largest institution for determination of radiation standards for the public has no molecular biologists on staff.

    Besides the initial 3/11 fallout reaching the US coast and the president covering up the fallout event along with Radnet being shutdown at the same time. Then there was the Alaskan Aleutian Island chain where researchers had been sampling fallout from old nuke tests to track ongoing ocean and land conditions. Their data collecting of effects from those old nuke tests had been going on for years. They found and confirmed Daiichi fallout in their results. Funding for return and future research dried up after that. Then there were reports of dead plankton covering Pacific deep ocean sea floors like snow.

    If there was any doubt of the severity of Daiichi fallout, the USS Reagan flotilla lawsuit has, would or should confirm it while the defendants keep selling off anything of value to avoid a judgement. Price-Anderson (limited liability) probably doesn't apply on foreign soils.

    Everything else is playing out as feared or expected during a major meltdown catastrophe. The German study foretold the result of the event. Whatever was learned from Chernobyl is of no surprise being seen again.

    The only thing that wasn't planned on is Daiichi fallout continuing to leak and leaking into the Pacific. Or maybe they just didn't ever want to discuss that scenario. They still don't want to discuss it. The lengths they go through to coverup Daiichi fallout is nothing short of stupendous.

    "ON THE BEACH": All life will be destroyed…in months:

  • HD et al, I added a zoomed in photo to this article.

    The blast pattern doing damage to the parapet walls (white) on the service building by reactor 3 shows clearly that there were 2 point source explosions. Why is this important? Because the "narrative" that the nuclear industry wants you to believe says that the explosion was a Hydrogen Explosion. But that would be a "volume source" and it wouldn't create the directed energy shown clearly by this picture and the zoomed out picture also in this article.

    The biggest lies require control of the narrative out of the gate. My job is to identify these false narratives, and then expose truth from the actual evidence.

    • Yep in reality there were 3 explosions at reactor 3 in rapid succession…

      The initial breach where you can see the fireball coming out the side of the reactor lid and passing out of the building, a compression explosion. Next the core reacted to the sudden change in pressures between the outer containment and it's containment, blew out the control rod section located at the bottom of the core and went up like a a roman candle. The third boom was from the core going through the lid and concrete plug.

      That's 3 explosion events in just a few seconds…

      Here's the video again, you can clearly hear all three separate explosions…

      …even shows it in slow motion.

      Explosion video:

      Photos of the core outside:

      Now we are getting to the actual events themselves, not what some PR guy said…

      Allright Stock!!!

      • Everyone should analyse the live readings, photos and videos. That's where the truth will be found.

        The foia documents are as close as you can get to the true situation because opinions are now too wide in scope in the media and expert PR.

        We are all trying to get to the truth and it's not easy with so much speculation and deliberate misinformation out there.

        It's easy to get it wrong by looking at partial truth or slanted opinion.

        I just hope that we can all get it right and stop nuclear in it's tracks before it stops us in ours.

        • Yep, lots of misinterpretations out there, slanted opinions. Like the FOIA that some use to "prove" that R4 fuel pool was lost completely (not saying it wasn't, just saying the particular FOIA doesnt prove it).

          Said FOIA talks of a "source term" in which they assumed that SPF4 was lost entirely. So they estimated a worst case scenario….that doesn't mean it happened.

          Many jump on this to "prove" that it happened (i.e. spent fuel pool at R4 burned completely).

          Sure it's alarming, sure we need to get people knocked upside the head and outside their comfort zone, red pill time. But doing it with easy to debunk false conclusions based on the FOIA data presented, just sets up a straw man.

          I spent a few hours one day reviewing hundreds of 911 pictures and videos. Airplanes DID fly into those buildings. Others have spent hundreds of hours creating youtubes and web page to "prove" that airplane did not fly into those buildings.

          And they feel they have to "prove that" in order to prove that the US Gov/CIA demolished those buildings. So much effort and yet the small minded cannot grasp that both thing can be (and are most certainly) true.

      • Also,If you ever froze a copper pipe (or took mechanical engineering) one would know that a pipe splits in the long direction, i.e. the hoop stress

        Pressure vessels, such as a reactor vessel, will have a "weakest point". it should be obvious from recent news that many metallurgical defects and welding defects are present in reactor vessels. Creating a weak point.

        At R3 the side wall of the reactor could have split open, or the bolts at the lid could have failed at one section, allowing a partial side blast out to occur.

        We do know that 195 tons of total uranium was added to the Pacific Atmosphere. It should be obvious that the only way to "launch" this much material, is not from a volume type hydrogen explosion, but an explosive force from under/within the uranium itself, and a container to direct the blast upward.

        These are facts. stock out

        • Hoop stress is a known and proven fact, no one would argue that point if they know even the slightest thing about mechanical engineering however…

          You knew a but was coming…

          There are factors that aren't considered when going down that road for instance…

          1) The weakest link in a chain…

          Where is the weakest point in a mark one containment?

          The bolted on cap. Even if it was correctly installed torqued and seated that is the weakest point in that assembly, way weaker than any welded connection…

          A big red flag when considering the video footage and seeing the fire rush out the top of the building sideways prior to the large detonation.

          2nd) Thermal dynamics…

          Where was the hottest point in the outer assembly before it failed?

          Top center of the cap, it's a dome shape and would allow the heat to weaken the portion directly over the core containment.

          So in this case the evidence points to heat and pressure unseating the bolted on cap and the sudden pressure release caused the core containment to blow the bottom out of the assembly and propel the core upwards throug the cap like a cannon shot.

          I think we can all agree the blast was caused by a prompt UNmoderated criticality but much of the ejection and trajectory after that fact is due to thermal dynamics and stress factors on the top of the outer containment.

          That's why you see 3 going skyward instead of demolishing the buildings next to it..

          Hottes part of inner containment?…

          • Hottest part of inner containment? The bottom of the vessel where the control rods spring up, by far the weakest place for the core containment…

            Here's a real world example…

            When I was in Jr. high one of our neighbors houses caught on fire..

            The cause was a malfunctioning water heater…

            So the gas stayed on for hours until the heat weakened the bottom of the water heater and the bottom of the container failed, blew out and the water heater flew through 2 stories of the home through the roof and landed in the yard. Straight up almost landed on the house as it fell…

            So the water pressurized container overheated and the bottom failed.

            Just think of reactor number 3 like that gas water heater only nuclear powered.

            Same thing on a much larger scale…

      • Down The River Down The River

        Every time I watch that video Hippie Dog and see all the HUGE pieces of smoking/burning shit falling out of that cloud, I think “fuck us”. You can tell how big those pieces are by comparing them to the vent stacks.

        I have an active imagination. I’ve always imagined one of those burning/smoking objects to be the spent fuel pool. Your take is probably closer to the truth.

        Here is clearer more detailed video showing stuff falling out of that cloud (lousy music)
        Unit 3 starts at 1:06

        • Great video! You can easily see the plug pieces rise and fall…

          They are stacked in in pieces, not one piece to start with….

          You can really see the umbrella style ejection of those pieces on that one without even having to zoom in…

          See any steam from the thousands of gallons of water in the fuel pool?

          No? Me neither, the containment was the source. The containment was also relatively dry (no qty of white smoke/steam observed). If it had been a fuel pool we would expect to see lots of white smoke and the blast go willie nillie in all directions. A explosion of that size if not forcibly directed would have leveled the adjacent buildings.

          And looking at the flyovers you can see holes in the roofs where the concrete fell back to earth very close to point of origin, meaning the blast was almost strait up with little blast damage to the sides.

          The heavy steel outer containment acted like a cannon barrel…

          The evidence proves it…

          • but but but Hippie, that doesn't fit the narrative! nuke reactors can't blow up! lol

            You should be canonized for that insight

            • Well I saw it so unless someone can change the dynamics of a explosion on paper and erase all the evidence and video footage it's now proven true…

              And anyone that says it didn't happen is a either criminal or a idiot.

              So to say this thing (reactor 3) didn't blow sky high is only in the interest of a criminal coverup.

              We need to bring some of these lairs to justice. They are only confusing people and many will die.

            I just started it at the spot to make it easy to find…

            theres no way you can see the concrete plugs fly up. Imagination or BS at work. Analysis of an explosion in the pool is wrong too. The pools are short barreled canons. Analysis of color of smoke and what its made of is BS too. How can you tell if theres water, concrete, fuel nanoparticles and what proportion? Total bs, for my taste

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          Who can tell what is falling out of the cloud? It appears NOT solid. A mix of dust, debris and water, and of course radioactive fallout. The falling stuff is traveling just a little over 100 mph at the fastest. A little slow for steel or solid concrete objects

          • Code how did you calc 100 MPH

            shite now, you gonna make me re-learn my kinetics! ouch. no time for the garden then.

            • Yep just makes one wonder what kind of thought processes must be going on there.

              The explosion was a documented detonation traveling in excess of the speed of sound…

              Do you know how fast sound travels code?


              • he is talking about the falling stage methinks.

                Anyhow…I have to get some real work done today, out for now.

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                stock, Hippie. Get a stopwatch. Find one online. Measure the time interval in question. (your reflexes mean you start late but also end late. Average three or more measurements)

                For example, we can get an idea of how fast the upward blast wave was. The towers are given as 120 meters which is 393 ft. The buildings are 150 feet high. Thus the distance from the top of the building to the top of the tower is 243 ft. I get about 0.8 seconds for the blast to reach the top of tower. So that gives 303 f/s or 206 m/h. Speed of sound is 1125 F/s.

                A quick look shows that the unit 2 blast was much faster. Much of the force raising the unit 3 mushroom cloud is simply thermal, not a blast wave.

                • I guess you have to assume the video is "real time"

                • razzz razzz

                  With logic like that, who needs a brain.

                  So, all those nuke test videos showing the mushroom clouds moving to slowly to prove a nuclear detonation.

                    razzz, welcome to the bitch fest. You are a welcome intellect compared to some of the other unmitigated idiocy running amok.

                    But you misinterpret. I never said the velocity of the mushroom cloud was evidence there was no nuclear explosion. You entirely made that up. Indeed, the mushroom cloud of atomic bombs is a convection phenomenon.

                    It would be very hard to see the super sonic blast wave which lasts typically just a few milliseconds. But people are looking at the video and surmising all kinds of stuff, including how fast, what kind of explosion and what materials go up. Simply stated, they cant do it, unless they are explosives forensic specialists.

                    • razzz razzz

                      Your right about 3's heat cloud. I don't see where there was enough water available to flash to steam and show the properties that cloud had.

                      Remember by TEPCO's own admission, they suspect that a primary access (inspection?) manhole failed onside and nearer the spent fuel pool.Previously never pictured in any drawings or shown in construction or working videos but it is the only area of complete destruction as the concrete sectional cap pieces are still in place over the primary cap with the reactor and its cap underneath except of course that one supposed manhole area.

                      Not that the caps, bolts and seals weren't leaking like sieves, because they were. Venting along with failed plumbing due quake damage and meltdown overpressure but containment of reinforced concrete and a steel shell in rather robust. More like a pressure cooker or bomb casing with a vertical cannon for a vent pipe i.e. failed manhole port which probably came back to earth and made the cutout in the adjoining turbine building roof.

                    • razzz razzz

                      Its late and my typing is barely legible but I might also note that there was extensive damage to a lower portion of Unit 3 as shown in some pictures of entire walls gone missing.

                      Probably a secondary exhaust or escape route of the blast. What couldn't escape vertically went sideways through a weakened point.

                      How much water is in a spent fuel pool? 400,000 gallons? How much in the other pool? How much in the torus? I cant figure out why you two gnarly dudes would say theres not enough water to 'flash off'

                      Maybe there was a missunderstanding. I never said the plume from unit 3 was all water. My point was that you cant tell WHAT it is just by looking. No way you are seeing flying concrete plugs, whether or not they did fly. I suspect a large quantity of concrete dust, mixed with water…condensing steam. It looks like the entirety of the eqpt pool could have been 'liberated', assuming there was any in there. But you can see….if only you would look…that there is permanent deformation of that pool

                    Ya, that's what I'm sayin' HHD. No one really has but a clue. But here's my logic, fwiw…

                    Containment failed. something that could never happen, till the three engineers quit and said so. We were warned.

                    It failed not once, not twice, not even three times if you add the faux contained fuel pools as containment. lol!

                    The pressure vessel of the reactor did not spit it's many bolted pressure cap. It stretched the bolts as admitted. It had to at least crack open the many bolted yellow secondary containment cap.


                    It had to because that explosion was not from the fuel pool. It was the slug of corium exiting out the bottom of the PV quickly. It hit a torus full of water. Something that gets noticed in any reactor of Mark vintage. Very bad. It lost containment out the bottom, hit water and created a steam explosion, a waterhammer event, as I posted long ago, around the pressure vessel, which was certainly jostled a tad, and exited around and out the top, splitting the yellow cap open, and spitting the stacked reactor plugs up and away. Holes in turbine room roofs…

                    The spent fuel pool may have blown at the same time, but it did not cause that reactor destruction as evidenced in the many videos.

                    Sorry, but thats what I saw…

                      And an even closer examination of the schematic, because I'm just a mechanic, reveals to me that it did not even have to break the yellow cap to spit the reactor plugs goodbye. The corium probably hit the pedestal at ejection speed. 100mph? 🙂

                    • Jebus Jebus

                      And there is a tremendous possibility that the waterhammer event started in the PV and it is what ejected the corium out the bottom…

                      Kinda simple a nuke bomb is. After acquiring and processing enough fissile material into purity you place the fissile material inside a casing (maybe itself made and shaped with a plastic like explosive) in a particular shape that will cause a blast to temporally imploded on itself. With that, after triggering the fissile chain reaction, the neutrons can't readily escape and imploded/reflect/compress/saturate back onto to the fissile material to sustain a runaway chain reaction leading to a nuclear explosion. If any part of the compressing casing shape fails, the neutrons escape and you can get a dud of a nuke bomb (a fizzle), more like a dirty bomb. For a fusion bomb, you add a pit-core of readily fusible materials that will be compressed by the initial primary nuke explosion thus causing fusion of the fusible materials.

                      …The explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi unit 2 reactor followed a frantic battle by engineers to re-cover the reactor's fuel core with seawater, a critical action needed to halt a meltdown of the tops of fuel rods that could spin out of control if unchecked, experts said. Some reports said a crucial, doughnut-shaped "suppression chamber" or reservoir beneath the reactor that receives steam and gases from the reactor core had been damaged, increasing the risk of radiation release from that unit.

                • And you would also have to know that the large concrete plug pieces would travel more slowly than the steel due to the weight…

                  Unit 2 cannot be compared in any way to unit 3, unit 2 blew the torus at the bottom of the reactor containment so that blast was directed more down and out and not up… The explosion you see in unit 2 was the fuel pool
                  and reactor producing hydrogen also NOT a detonation meaning it did not break the speed of sound.

                  Unit 2 had hydrogen explosions as did 1 and 4.

                  Unit 3 was a prompt criticality and was nuclear in nature.

                  Again code the reports are there if you look.

                  And open your eyes and look at the video footage of all the explosions! Units 1 2 and 4 all had white smoke and the blast spread in all directions, no large pieces of concrete, no black smoke, no 800 foot mushroom cloud

                  Here it is! Unit one explosions and unit 3 back to back. Watch em, pause em, see the obvious.

                  Unit 1 low blast in all directions with thick white smoke…

        Hippie, again with the reactor in the rubble. Please see this photo. Find the two small yellow cranes at the base of the tower. The smaller one, closer to the bottom, in front of the little building is the object you think is a reactor vessel split exactly in two. Please make a note of it.

        • Code, what do you think made that fox head shaped hole in the roof of the service building? Not dust, lol

          And what of the blast patterns tearing off the parapet walls… saw my post on that one>? I added a new photo that makes it more clear.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            stock, the columns…maybe you call them parapet walls…they were sheared off. They were tied into the walls which are capable of transmitting considerable load via blast pressures. A web of rebar every 12 inches or so. I had considered ballistic projectiles too. Whatever caused it, it demonstrates the large magnitude of the blast. Photos show the roof exerted horizontal force…a leverage effect. Many columns seem sheared off squarely. This indicates the rebar was not working with concrete for shear strength, as such failures occur as 45 deg cracks with the 'stirrup' rebar acting as half of the shear structure. Perhaps in an explosion, the difference ductility or fracture resistance changes the nature of reinforced concrete?

            The huge gantry crane, with burnt out holes still lying over the reactor, indicating the concrete reactor plug was in place

            notice the heavy duty shielding going over the SFP, if thats what it is.

            'suction phase' is evidenced by the beams plastered down and into the SFP

            • Code, parapet walls are the walls on a rooftop that extend up beyond the roof, obstensively to protect equipment or provide a better visual view of the building, they are common. On the "services building" as I call it, and likely the turbine building, those were blown away but in a directed manner, 2 directions.

              Picture shown in your comment—– are we looking at unit 4 and not 3 as the title indicates? Keep in mind, they are protecting a $400B USD a year industry. And they lie through their freaking teeth.

              Perhaps in a moderated prompt criticality, the explosive forces AND the deluge of neutrons, changes how things normally work/fail.

              When I saw R3 damage on upper steel, I immediately knew that this was severe radiation damage, steel hit with so many neutrons that it went limp like an asparagus cooked too long.

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                stock..yes I know what parapets are. I follow your two blast trajectory analysis. The hole in the adjacent building roof….for sure beams and concrete went flying. Its a little stretch to say it was core material that made the hole. Although there was neutron emitting fuel found around and to some distance…so theres that.

                My point is that many explosive modalities could be acting nearly simultaneously.

                I take the spaghetti beams to be of smaller, probably open section…and a blast of close to 200 mph produces forces of 150 lb per square foot or more…

                • Code, My main point is point source explosion. Not "volume source" as per hydrogen explosion.

                  Not saying core material….but reactor cap section, perhaps. Haven't tried to check the sizes.

          You would too is you would pay attention and stop coming up with destroyed trucks and 100 mph concrete stories. Try looking for the actual evidence from readings and videos of the explosions.

If your still not convinced then move to the spaceship crowd and have fun with the fairy tales…

          It's one thing to scrutinize things, constantly creating stories to refute something as obvious as the 3 reactor core going airborne is something totally different.

          Lowering cost of living is another total crap excuse for nukes, but that's how they (Japanese government) sold nuclear to the Japanese people…

            A HUGE POINT TO MAKE because we are Re-licensing our reactors here in the US and it MUST STOP!!! That was the whole point of a expire by date to begin with and was the only reason the program ever got to build em in the first place.

            Write your congressman and tell them we will not tolerate ANY extensions on ANY nuclear power plant.

        First you have to admit the technical exist to create Tsuaanis and this link proves it.

        Second you have to ask yourself why was there Zero damage from a 9.0 earthquake , I mean the cars didn't even move out of their parked lines before the waves rolled in. Compare that to the devastation of a 6.8 earthquake that destroyed KOBE.

        Fukushima was no accident but a direct act of war

        • The pipes at Fukushima were already broke due to EQ and releasing radiation, before the Tsunami arrived.

          The claim of ZERO damage seems extreme. I have traveled Japan extensively and as a mechanical engineer with decades of infrastructure building experience, I can attest that their infrastructure is built the proverbial brick shithouse.

          So you need to go further than "the bridges and buildings weren't all flattened" in your justification. Also, might be easy to find some examples of no damage, but to hold your opinion, you would need to do a due diligence and try to find some damage.

          personally i have seen many videos and pictures showing huge cracks in surface roadways —big damage. And then the towns that have high tide entering their streets because the whole land dropped 3 feet.

          • Down The River Down The River

            A few years ago someone posted pictures of cracked/ displaced pavement around the plant right after the EQ.

            I have never been able to find those pics again, perhaps someone here has them.

        • from your link—this is 1950 era mind you

          Experts concluded that single explosions were not powerful enough and a successful tsunami bomb would require about 2 million kilograms of explosive arrayed in a line about five miles from shore.

        • "Russia did it" lol

          its in the news today, lol

        • Byrian419

          Yep FUKUSHIMA was done by design for depopulation.

          • not to put anything past the sociopaths that be, but the method of de-pop would be about the stupiest and costliest way to de-pop.

            Simple bio-warfare would make a lot more sense. With the physical equipment / wealth lost.

            it doesnt even pass the smell test.

            But what of those hundred of pre-cursor earthquakes DAB boy?

              You calling me DAB Boy.. HA! Funny to see you degenerate to common Troll tactics when your limited and shabby expertise is challenged.

              US Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, said on 28 April 1997 at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and U.S. Strategy, University of Georgia, while discussing the dangers of false threats, "Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves."[3]

          Obviously there is the potential for an earthquake assist using high grade explosives and yes I have read the information on creating such tsunami waves in this manner.

          Yet this does not change the fact the earth's crust is in fluid motion on a continual basis and this crust/plate movement will not ever stop and such activity will always happen over millions of years.

          None of us alive were here 120 years none of us actually have a clue how often these happen, yet there are now warnings all over the world in certain areas for the known past documented events.

          Bottom line: Sure.. trust no one..but me thinks the Earth has violently rocked and rolled much worse in the distant past.. than what any of us here have ever experienced or man has ever documented in text.

        • Well your icon says it all, a closed mind is apt to believe all kinds of crazy things and we've seen it with all the crazy theories out there…

          Open you thinking for a moment and I'll show you what caused the EQ…

          And don't forget we are talking about the most earthquake prone place in the entire world…

          …and it's on the ring of fire.

          Watch this one from Suspicious 0bservers:

    • Aggreed stock humans causing the earthquake is a complete fairy tale..

      There was negligence on the part of Tepco…

      They allowed the plant to continue running after it's design life was over.

      They didn't make upgrades to the safety systems.

      The didn't raise the sea wall even after years of predictions that a tsunami could cripple or destroy the plant.

      The sun and other natural factors caused the earthquake and it's well documented.

  • basing opinion based on other opinions is a shitty way to go through life.

  • laconic93 laconic93

    I've been alive since 1972 and there has never been a huge tsunami like the ones that happened in Japan and Indonisia all within a 3 year period. I just find the information compelling coming from a man who has a Doctorate from Oxford Univeristy. He correlated both Tsunamis with currency manipulation. You simple cannot dismiss opinions of people especially when they present decent education credentials.

    Joseph P. Farrell

    Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science.

    • Well thats fine, credentials help, he gets a few extra points out of the gate, compared to say a DAB smoking idiot with a CERN agenda….

      But although I won't immediately dismiss his opinion, neither will I accept his opinions. I may choose not to run down that rabbit hole unless someone presents 10 bullet items with backup documents/links.

      What of the 100's of pre-cursor earthquakes? How can his theory fit with those FACTS?

      Right there is a huge reason for me NOT to spend my time running down a rabbit hole that seems very far fetched out of the gate.

      History's Biggest Tsunamis

      This is a natural color, 60-centimeter (2-foot) high-resolution QuickBird satellite image featuring the southwestern coast of Sri Lanka. Imagery was collected on December 26, 2004 at 10:20 a.m. local time, slightly less than four hours after the 6:28 a.m. (local Sri Lanka time) earthquake and shortly after the moment of tsunami impact.

      Some of the biggest, most destructive and deadliest tsunamis on record:

      8,000 years ago: A volcano caused an avalanche in Sicily 8,000 years ago that crashed into the sea at 200 mph, triggering a devastating tsunami that spread across the entire Mediterranean Sea. There are no historical records of the event – only geological records – but scientists say the tsunami was taller than 10-story building.

      Nov. 1, 1755: After a colossal earthquake destroyed Lisbon, Portugal and rocked much of Europe, people took refuge by boat. A tsunami ensued, as did great fires. Altogether, the event killed more than 60,000 people.


      Aug. 27, 1883: Eruptions from the Krakatoa volcano fueled a tsunami that drowned 36,000 people in the Indonesian Islands of western Java and southern Sumatra. The strength of the waves pushed…

    "It’s taken 30 years for the world, via an article in USA Today, to begin to understand how devastating, over decades, not over a few years, radiation exposure is to the human body. It is a silent killer that cumulates in the body over time and passes from generation to generation to generation, endless destruction that cannot be stopped.
    Where is WHO is kinda like Where is Waldo, but sadly the effects of ionizing radiation are not part of a game. It is deadly serious, forevermore. In the meanwhile, Fukushima irradiates and irradiates, limitlessly and so far, unstoppable. Where does its radiation go?

    I think the earthquake shook the cooling pipes loose based on worker accounts. The reactors were in trouble before the tsunami took out power and diverted early response to the reactor problems. TEPCO insists it was the tsunami because admitting it was an earthquake would make it difficult to restart other NPP's in fault/quake zones. By focusing on the Daiichi reactors attention was diverted from damage at other NPP’s and information is more easily controlled.

    "The authors have spoken to several workers at the plant who recite the same story: Serious damage to piping and at least one of the reactors before the tsunami hit"

    • "the earthquake shook the cooling pipes loose based on worker accounts"

      Yes that's true! Not only that, the cooling pumps that brought the water in were destroyed…

      You can't pull water at those volumes, it must be pushed.

      So each cooling pipe had 3 (or more) pumps mounted to the seabed at the inlets. They were destroyed, ripped up and broken.

      So even if the plant had backup power they would not have been able to cool the reactors.

      Many experts have brought this to the attention of the world.

      Doesn't seem to get the attention it deserves.

    -"Two populations of wild dolphins living off the coast of Florida and South Carolina are experiencing more chronically activated immune systems than dolphins living in controlled environments, raising concerns of researchers about overall ocean health, and the long-term health of bottlenose dolphins. The research, publishing May 3 in the scientific journal PLOS ONE is the first study of its kind analyzing the role the environment plays in the overall health and immune response of dolphins in the wild compared to those in human care.

    "This is likely a result of encountering pathogens, parasites and anthropogenic pollutants in the ocean that do not exist in closely managed zoological habitats," said Patricia Fair, PhD, lead author of the study and Research Professor at the Medical University of South Carolina. "The immune system is incredibly complex and so very important for health. Microbes are part of the natural world and help to develop the immune system. The key to a healthy immune system is a balance between being able to recognize harmful organisms and overstimulation and this study demonstrates the importance of the environment in these responses."

    Aquatic rest stops may pose potential hazards for migratory waterfowl

    Aiken, S.C. – Migratory waterfowl around the world travel hundreds to thousands of miles annually, stopping at lakes, ponds and marshes to refuel and breed. Some of these aquatic rest stops may be at sites polluted by remnants of radioactive waste from nuclear production or accidents, exposing the birds to contamination that they take with them. This poses a potential risk to humans if the waterfowl enter the food chain.

    Hello Jay!

      Your premonitions of doom effect me….In 1999 I sat on the lakeshore watching the geese; so many geese that the cities and towns were trying to rid themselves of the "problem"..while I tried to keep in my memory the sight of scores of wildfowl coming to the lake seasonally and ever kept my lakeshore available for them to land despite my neighbors. I had the awful premonition that if I had grandchildren I'd have to describe to them the flocks of geese so plentiful that they were considered a nuisance. I did not expect that premonition to come to fruition, not as early as this and I no longer expect grandchildren as a given.


    Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia is ready to assist Japan in the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant cleanup and offers the latest technologies for cleaning contaminated soil and reprocessing radioactive waste.
