Bay FM 99.9 – Byron Bay Australia, Feb. 26, 2014:

  • Dr. Helen Caldicott: Things are grim — it gets actually worse by the day. […] There have been 3 meltdowns, which is just unheard of in the history of nuclear age, Units 1, 2, and 3, so that means that molten cores of about 100 tons of uranium in 3 reactors have melted their way through 6 inches of steel in the reactor vessel through to the containment floors, possibly through feet of concrete and steel into the earth. >> Full broadcast here

Dr. Helen Caldicott in Kyoto, Japan, Mar. 8, 2014:

  • Dr. Helen Caldicott: A more realistic estimate of contamination is 60,000 square kilometers, occupied by 46 million people including parts of Tokyo and surroundings. As you can see (map on right), the whole land mass is contaminated to a greater or lesser extent.

    "As you can see, the whole land mass is contaminated to a greater or lesser extent."

    That was before they intentionally spread the contamination via moving and burning. They know the land is contaminated and there is no fix and remediation is just a big word for cleanup.

    Burning radioactive grass and leaves doesn't remove the radioactivity, just the grass and leaves and the radioactivity goes right out to fall somewhere else. Washing dirt or leaves or roofs or walls just moves the radioactivity around, but its still there and some of it will be for MILLIONS of years.

    I pity the japanese who have been betrayed by their leaders and their children poisoned but I just wonder what they will raise the levels to after the next nuclear power plant goes up?

      There's no way of knowing what it actually is, is there? You could be right. But just as equally, she could have over-estimated it. It's possible that an anti-nuclear activist would embellish it to make it seem more disastrous than it actually is. Regardless, it is truly a disaster for the whole world. I can't see how life on earth as we know it will still exist in the future.

          Thing is, radioactivity is naturally complicated. MANY different radionuclides, and a mix of alpha, beta and gamma. They also decay into "daughters."

          So anything that's already been said about cesium, or strontium, or plutonium, or tritium, etc., etc. — we've only gotten separate and partial pieces all along. And it's ONGOING. And the source — HUNDREDS of tons of wildly radioactive materials, when just a tiny bit per person could kill you.

          Then there is bio-accumulation, and bio-magnification up the food chain, and that genetic defects tend to get WORSE, not better, down through the generations.

          So I'm not saying that she likely UNDER-estimated as a hyperbole. I really believe that to be the case! Tragically.

        Nondi:
        What does support her estimate is how far away the fallout has been measured at ground level on Honshu.

        Her estimate translates to the equivalent of 152 miles on a side if it
        was just a square area.

        That seems quite reasonable since all of Tokyo (more or less) is already known to be blanketed with the fallout, with some areas worse than other.

        That we now know from Prof Kaltofen's data that actual fuel particulate has been found in Tokyo makes the estimate seem on the low side (to me).

        And we know that bad amounts have been found in many other directions away from Fuku.

        Since corium emits massive amounts of gamma radiation, and since gamma radiation passes through everything, a gamma ray detector could likely be used.

        http://www.canberra.com/literature/fundamental-principles/pdf/Gamma-Xray-Detection.pdf
        The problem, as I see it, is bureaucratic. The old head-in-the-sand TEP-gov scientists and engineers have to maintain the fiction that molten nuclear fuel heats up to 2,700C, but quickly exhausts its energy, which they claim is decay heat alone. They believe that GE designed the Mark I containment vessel with enough concrete and steel at the bottom to hold the corium within its manmade "containment". Their debate is over how deep the corium has sunk into the concrete base. See slide 6:
        http://www.aec.go.jp/jicst/NC/sitemap/pdf/P-4.pdf
        Many ENEnewsers believe that fission continues long after a meltdown has occurred, as evidenced by ongoing detection of I-131, a fission fingerprint. We believe that water simply forms a crust on the outside edge of the corium, which insulates the 5,000C corium, and that ongoing fission maintains that heat. ENEnewser PattieB has posted here that a worker at the ruins told her the corium was at a depth of several kilometers by the summer of 2011.
        If the radiation at the base of Containments1,2,&3 has fallen, it because the corium has melted out of the buildings entirely.

          I-131 is a great indicator of ongoing fission. I-131 has a half life of 8 days. So it fades away quickly after it has been created by uranium fission.
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iodine-131
          If the fiction of TEP-gov were true, that corium cools rapidly, and cannot be continuously heated by ongoing fission, then there would be no great amounts of I-131 around today, in 2014.
          And yet, I-131 is still found today in Chiba sewage sludge, for instance:
          http://optimalprediction.com/files/chiba2-7-14.gif
          The presence of large amounts of I-131 in 2014, 3 years after meltthrough, indicates that the corium is still heated by fission.
          Hot molten corium melts its way quickly through concrete and steel, and through the mudrock underneath the plant. ENEnewsers calculated that at the rate corium melts through concrete, the Fukushima corium melted out of the reactor building about a week after 3/11. Where the corium has gone since then is the question.
          ENEnewsers monitor Fukushima webcams 24/7/365, and post observations of smoke and steam venting from the ruins and from the surrounding earth. Nuclear fuel soot (the intensley radioactive black substance) is found throughout central Japan along roadways, and wherever rainwater collects. Clearly, the corium continues to hiss and spit. And clearly, the corium has not cooled. It is still to be found.
          Find it, TEPCO!
          If you know where the corium is, tell us.

          Where is the damn corium, TEPCO?

    stock, norbu, full moons also make an impact on Emergency rooms in hospitals and medical/mental health practices.

    I also wanted to quote an excerpt from Plutopia, by Kate Brown, pg. 200…

    Nadyrev Most, 1956:
    "In 1956 soldiers showed up, unannounced, in Nadyrev Most. They read orders for immediate resettlement. They had done this already many times, and they were quick and efficient. While the soldiers rounded up the livestock, a team of young agronomists, the educated elite of the Soviet countryside, went from house to house making inventories, tallying up the number of chickens, pigs, and goats outside, and the numbers of pots, pans, shirts, and shoes inside…
    Then the soldiers did something unforgettable, as if the nice boys in ill fitting uniforms were enemy forces in the grip of war. They gathered in a great heap a century's worth of possessions-wooden plows and harnesses, lathes, linens, bridal laces, woolens, quilts, most made by the hands of the villagers-and burned them on a communal pyre. Next the conscripts led the livestock to a field and began to shoot them…As the first trucks departed, the voices and sounds merged in a spontaneous requiem to the river community.

All those chemicals and radiation synergistically are mutual multipliers for both cancer and mutations. TBTB want their money and property for the next decade or two. They will then pass on and care not a wit about the future. They are sadistic and psychopathic. Studies now prove this fact. The capitalist elite actually funded Hitler! He fought communism for them.

        Exactly, Socrates.

        Hitler seized the power with help, money and planning coming from all capitalistic centrals of the world, including Great Britain and USA, frightened by the bolschevik menace coming from the east. IBM itself built the computers used to develop methods to sort jewish prisoners in the camps.

        Before european unification, the false communist ideology/fear was used – masking a real state capitalism – by both USSR and USA imperialisms – to subject entire eastern nations and frighten western people, dividing up Europe and conquering private reservoirs of surplus value from respective masses of wage workers.

        Now the european capitalists have succeeded in creating the sort of unified currency/market/imperialism dreamed of by Hitler. They made it peacefully, but not so much, if you think to the at least 10 wars fought in eastern territories after the collapse of Soviet Union, with a million of dead. And now they are testing the future unified armies in african wars.

        During the process, nuclear technology was dispersed on territories, in the form of energy plants, warheads, depleted uranium, etc. This is the grim capitalistic heritage.

        I feel sad for your personal story, and I will fight imperialism with my limited means here in Europe til death also for you and your family.

            Thank you AS, really interesting, I missed it. You know, for a realist like Lenin every mean was to be used – also capitalists' money – to accomplish the supreme task, ending the war and give the communist revolution a try. In other occasions, he kicked the westerners in the butts. In 1918 Japanese, American, British, French, Italian, etc contingents entered Siberia. The troops were sent by their respective governments to support the anti-Bolshevik formations and interested in the prospect to divide the spoils of the Russian Empire. Lenin and Trotsky won against the capitalist invaders. But these troops will never fight against the Communists and the White armies abandon them to their fate when they outlined their defeat, having already achieved their goal. In fact, the resistance of the White armies and the Polish victory over the Vistula, in August of 1920, make it militarily impossible for bolsheviks to export communist revolution in Europe, exhausted by war. All in all, when the international revolution failed, Lenin, as a realist, switched from communism to state capitalism edification, as he always said. He was too ahead of his times. Now the proletarian forces worldwide have increased immensely. Next time we'll do better.

    Greetings all.
    I've been lurking here for a few months, after stumbling across the site whilst reading up on Fukushima.
    I'm in the UK, I'm not a scientist and I don't pretend to understand the numbers (or some of the physics).
    Sure do wish I could afford a geiger counter.

    However, I noticed at the time of Fukushima that there was altogether too many "calm down, nothing happened, just carry on as before" type articles all over the place. What really set the alarm bells ringing was seeing such an article on a computer technology news site. It was then I began to think "this is much bigger than they're letting on". Based on the "me thinks they doth protest too much" principle.

    And herein is the point – no one wants to know the truth (well, hardly anyone). They long to be told "all is well" and so will respond to articles that say this rather than ones that say "we're in more trouble than we've ever seen before". Further, if the worst case scenarios I've read are true, it's already too late and there's nothing that can be done and not many people want to hear that.

    I find myself not wanting to believe anything I read on this site, whilst simultaneously finding nowhere else that is remotely credible.

    (I noticed the "plutonium found in Lithuania" comment, but haven't seen any follow up on that. Does anyone know if this is true?)

      Of course it's true. Nano and aerosolized particles are still falling out from the above-ground testing in the 50s throught the 70s in the case of some countries. Add Fukushima's explosions and spent fuel pool fires to the jet stream in the troposphere and stratosphere. Ever 40 days, the stuff moves around the globe. It also crosses the equator and gets into a reverse Coriolus pattern. You are safest at the equatorial regions, except for desert winds from the middle east following two gulf wars that carry ulfra-fine particles.

      TPTB wanted to quell the imperial drive of Japan into the Dutch East Indies and into East Asia. Nukes were used. That oil, gas, tin and rubber were already "owned." The booby prize was the peaceful atom so thwt Japan could fight communism without oil resources and become an industrial miracle. The new "treat" to accummated wealth was the People's revolution in China.

      Nukes were used to protect capitalism which needed to merge with the free market, so that democracy would be conflated with the word "free" as in free world. The 1% would rationize the extreme uneven distrbution of wealth in the world beause communism was so bad. That 1% is really .00001% who virtually own more that the rest of us combined.

      Now they fight muslims but how do nukes help in that fight. The nukes are just loose cannons; potentially able to be turned back on the free world.

      The many trillions spent on MAD can never be recovered. To continue to justify these expenditures and the nuclear poser generating stations withh all that waste cannot be justified.

    This catastrophe will never end. Large areas of the earth will become uninhabitable, if not the entire planet. This event is a slow-motion train wreck, a time-release nuclear war without the blast effect, except for few hydrogen and moderated prompt criticalities.

    It will keep on spreading but not diluting so much as bioaccumuating and bio-concentrating. Certainly, 3-11 was the tipping point of the environmental ruin caused by man's greed, hubris and short-sightedness. There are bound to be many more nuclear mishaps until the end. How many times can you flip a coin without coming up with tails?

      The US is great at threatening to bomb a little country back into the stone age. Somehow, the US thinks twice when making that threat to another nuclear power. They call that "MAD." The byproduct of the peaceful atom is the big tomahawk with a warhead. The unintended effect is to shoot one's self in both feet. This is what has happened in Japan and at Hanford, WIPP and countless other friendly-fire mishaps, as well as the death traps called nuclear power plants with all their waste. No way to get rid of it.

      This "thinking" has aready programmed most life on earth for certain death. You do not need to go around with a $200 dollar detector to realize this fact. You do not need to be a scientist. Just being a philosopher and an anthropologist is enough. Open your eyes and trust
      Your power of common observation. Turn off the corporate boobtube that tels you there is no danger.

    The elites are all hiding in their bunkers now. They want to conceal the role in creating this mess. None of us can hide. The Grim Reaper will spare none. Wealth is NO protection from what has been unleashed at Fukushima. The elite will simply control the release of information to extend and pretend, hoping that the Commoners are too.stupid to.
    connect the dots. Ukraine is a big grab for resources and rich farm land. Africa, too. Neocolonialism and neoliberalism and neoconservatism with US Exceptionalism, fiat currency, central bankers creating a new world disorder where they write the rules to allow them to manipulate through siphoning off through securitization and financialization… backed up by control of energy, food and water… it is beginning to all fall apart ecologically. The system is intentionally designed to benefit a few now; nothing left for the children. All greedy psychopaths in charge. Call it "free" but we have no real say in matters; only TPTB.

    Nuclear is the poster child for their greed and control. They have set up a total police state yet cannot protect themselves from the radioactivity from Fukushima. In the 50s, they imagined that they could scurry into a shelter while school children were taughtto duck and cover, obviously being left to die.

    By second grade, I knew they were criminally insane. By 1957, they panicked over Sputnik. Ha! What a sad joke on humanity this all is. I say they shot themselves in both feet and cannot admit it.

    Socrates-also wondered if you heard of Karen Hudes, she is a glimmer of hope for all of us. I love what she's doing and trying to spread the word about her.

      All of you folks with whom I have had the opportunity to share a foxhole in this madness; please prepare for the inevitable "fallout."

      Fukushima has been totally out of control since 3-11. Baterries for back up were 2 volts instead of 12. Why they were not hooked up in series, I do not know. The USS Reagan was probably brought in to throw an electrical line for cooling. By the time seawater was helicopter-dropped, albeit ineffectively, and multiple explosions occurred, our fates were sealed. Dr. Bill Deagle and Chris Harris have posted some advice. North America is downwind and down-current from the disaster. Countless vectors will transport countless radionuclides for all eternity. Activity on the Ring of Fire on the Pacific Rim will bring more major earthquakes and aftershocks. Tsunamis may inundate reactors. Our nuclear infrastructure is a minefield just waiting to be tripped, accidentally, by an act of nature, the sun, a flood…

      Carrington effects or terrorists… or just typical stupidity. Engineers make horrendous errs every day. Their assumptions are so stupid and based on corporate greed. Profits over safety is their motto. CHeck out the auto industry lately wbere they would not spend an additional 97 cents on a part in the ignition a d dozens died while they covered it up.

  • So much for the 'no one died' myth. We can put that myth out of its misery..

    At 9 min. in, Caldicott provides the medical study charts showing a huge drop in live births and a huge rise in spontaneous abortions in Japan.

    Just like after Chernobyl, TMI, Santa Susana or any other melt down that anyone wants to research.

    But this genocide of babies is not limited to Japan… it is GLOBAL

    There were an additional 50K infant deaths just in the first few months in the US, after 3/11.

    Add up the rest of the world, and you start seeing how nuclear is an insane, genocidal killing machine that NEVER ends.

    The invisible radiation keeps on killing for a million years into the future.

    It also attacks the core of life, taking apart the DNA/RNA that is the building block of all life on the planet.

    Via nuclear man made radiation, we are committing global suicide.

      If I have more money than God then it would be a good thing that fewer people were here in the future consuming my family's remaining planet resources. :(

      Money.. now = God. :(

      They attacked Joseph Mangano for pointing out this fact. Dr. Mengele never killed this many babies. The adverse effects of 131I will not be limited to deaths. Severe learning problems in many children, cretinism, hypothyroidism, papillary thyroid cancer, childhood leukemia…. the list goes on.

      Inhaled particle deaths will begin in Fukushima. We will see a scaled-down version in America. We all remember the Marboro man dying. He begged people not to smoke. Maybe when pro-nukes see their own children suffer, their own cruelty will brought home to them.

      I know recovered pro-nukes. Some went to med school. Other nuclear engineers have told me that they need the income. They cannot get out.

    This is a very ancient and powerful Zeitgeist Matrix and nothing that you see is real..created illusions.. says he.

    75 possible cases of children with thyroid cancer as of Feb 2014, up from 59 in September 2013.
    "suspected cases of thyroid cancer among people aged 18 or below at the time of the accident rose to 75, compared with 59 at the end of last September. Of the current total, 33 cases have been confirmed as cancer."(in 254,000 children screened–out of a total of 375,000 total eligible for screening)
    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/mar/09/fukushima-children-debate-thyroid-cancer-japan-disaster-nuclear-radiation

    Chilling as the normal % is 1 per Million. In Japan, Fukushima it its much higher..where expected childhood thyroid cancer would be NONE in 250,000 statistically..there are 75! 300 in a million vs 1 in a million. If you are one of the 300–you are facing permanent removal of the thryoid gland, permanent medication, likely issues having children, and possible reaccurrance. If the disease is not treated immediately, you face radiation treatment every three years, and more surgery. Its not a nice disease..yes..its treatable. But for a lifelong sentence of issues..IF a child or as an adult does not get daily medication, they face terrible physical issues..and loss of IQ, facial deformaties..and more.

    • And this is in a place where they are trying NOT to find any health issues, as hard as they can..

      Wonder what the real rate of cancer is, but mislabeled as something else, like too much stress, not enough smiling, etc?

        I thought the WHO report that stated there would be a massive upsurge in cancer rates in the coming 10 years and that this was down to "sugar and alcohol abuse" was a bit, how shall we put it, "obvious".

        They know this wave of illness and death is coming, so they're laying the scenery out now so it can be blamed on lifestyle (ours, or course, not theirs), just as they blame the unemployed for unemployment and the poor for the banking crisis.
        Quite why the whole planet isn't up in flames with bankers and politicians swinging from every lamp post is a testament to the power of the flouridation of water and the mindnumbing power of TV.
        The list that contains "reasons to be furious" is getting stupidly long.

    Looking at the above 3 posts, looks like Enenews being spammed by scum-bots. To what purpose? Disruption? Hits? Sales? The world is in dire straits. What a waste of time and valuable Enenews space! Maybe that’s the purpose.

    Goes w/o saying: ‘Newsers, ignore the bots.

    Go away silly bots! Go away silly bot-pushers!

    A pox on the bots and their irrelevant brown polyester masters. The world has changed. Business-as-usual-formula spam simply doesn’t work here. Go away. Time’s ‘a-wasting.
