Caldicott: Fukushima to be pouring radioactive water into Pacific “probably for the rest of time… forever more” — “There’s simply nothing anyone can do about it” — “Nuclear industry is covering it up because they know if truth comes out it will be end of nuclear power” (AUDIO)

Caravan to Midnight, the John B. Wells Program, March 2014:

At 43:00 in

  • Dr. Helen Caldicott: There seems to be no end in sight for this dreadful catastrophe. About 300 to 400 tons of radioactive water per day are pouring into the Pacific, have been for the last 3 years, and will continue probably for the rest of time because no one can find out where the molten cores of a hundred of seethingly hot uranium are. No one can get near them because they’re so radioactive, and the water will continue to flow over them, I guess, forever more. I can’t see any other way out of it. […] I had the same reaction as you when two days after the tsunami and earthquake occurred […] I got this feeling in the pit of my stomach […] there is simply nothing anyone can do about it. And people are asking me all the time what can I take, what nutrients can I take? There’s nothing you can take to remove the radioactive elements from your body once you’ve eaten them.

At 46:15 in

  • Caldicott: We need to be depressed. People can get through depression. […] People need to be sad, they need to be depressed. They need to get moving and close down all the reactors in America. They need to start getting off their bottoms and moving away from their computers, using their democracy, educating their representatives […] taking over the state house, the congress because you own them. In the vacuum that people leave by not using their democracy in an educated fashion that the corporations step into the vacuum.

At 50:00 in

  • Caldicott: The nuclear industry is covering it up because they know damn well that if the real truth comes out it will be the end of nuclear power.

At 55:30 in

  • Caldicott: It’s only America that can save the planet, if you rise to your full moral and spiritual height and decide to do it. Nothing else matters, nothing else matters.

    The truth.

    Since when do people actually care about the truth?

    Don't we all just sort of decide what to believe in?

    Nah, don't let the Fukushima alarmists scare you.

        You know this PINK shit for us whom have already had FUKU fuckup (cancer) this pink shit hurts! It is a sock right in my SORE JAWS rebuilt by a LEG BONE! Brought to me by those with NO caring WHATSOEVER! Please STOP this PINK shit people!!?? Please!!??? It is an INSULT to those who have SURVIVED cancer!!!

        • bo bo

          I totally agree, Ontological – those ribbons – what a huge insult.
          Now whenever people stop me to ask if I'd like to donate to cancer research, I tell them no, because cancer will never stop if we never get rid of what's causing all this cancer, that if I were to donate money, I would donate to organizations working to fight against nuclear industries ( which I do now, starting with enenews)

          • bo bo

            Oh… I misinterpreted your post. I thought your anger was directed towards the cancer industry – did not realize your anger was directed towards the glib gallows humor. I am so sorry for the insensitive way I threw this around Ontological. When I say ROFLMAO on enenews, I assume people know it's actually 'Rolling On Floor Laughing (and Crying) My A** Off.' I should have known better.

          it's called sarcasm, Ontological. In this instance, people are righteously using gallows-humor to expose the pharma/med community's hypocrisy in pretending concern for cancer victims. And while I'll admit to having met a few medical practitioners and administrators who do have concern for what's happening, most have become immured to the crushing horrors that they face on the job. Truth is, nobody's laughing; least of all, 'newsers. Know that most everyone cares, out here…

          • Ontological Ontological

            Ya but it goes too far when yer there. I understand the gallows humor, I use it too. You have to be there to fully understand where I come from.
            Loosing many people I knew and loved once in a time long ago. No pink for them. Strokes, cancer, Down's, Autistizm, ADHD ADD etc. You name the issue, it points to food & water additives and environmental poisoning every time. Funding this lie is unbelievable to me! TY Bo, AS, I know you mean well Nick, think spectral pink. Especially for Dr. Helen Caldicott! Threat dodging seems to be the new 'norm' for those who wish any truths at all get by the all knowing Nuketards. You get those SOB's doc!

            Oh and remember,
            Smiles everyone smiles!


              understand, Ontological, some of us don't reveal what others freely disclose in public. It's up to each individual to decide if their personal situations should be used as argument. I figure, I'm in a world where few are capable of genuine empathy. It's like when a report comes out about the latest downpour of radiation on the West Coast. You've only to look at the flurry of hits and comments on an report that concerns the West Coast to know, most people are only concerned with the potential effect on them and theirs. When you peruse an article that reports on Japanese children being force-fed tuna sandwiches at lunch, you see some concern. For the most part, it platitudes galore and grounds for political grandstanding.

              I don't fault people for being this way. It's both a combination of our specie's biological programming and media-induced indifference. At least here, on ENENEWS, you get a smattering of humans who attempt to think on something other than their own personal interests. But it ain't easy breaking free of generations of selfishness…

          It's unfortunate more people "diagnosed" with cancer do not know about alternative CURES long before they agree to chemo, radiation, or surgery – so-called treatments usually kill you. If you survived cancer (and conventional therapy), you survived in spite of the treatments.


          • Ontological Ontological

            One word. Immunofluorescence. I due to my ability to understand this stuff found the ONLY Oncologist that can rid your head of cancer without radiation or 'chemical chemo.' He was impressed, but could not tell me anything more than "it was a very aggressive carcinogen." The tenured have to be very carful these days!

        • PurpleRain PurpleRain

          I so totally agree. I hate what they have done to the color pink. I won't wear the color. I've never had cancer (fortunately), but they have totally ruined the color by association. I refuse to own any clothing at all that has that color!~~~~

  • Capt. Nemo Capt. Nemo

    When Doctor Caldicott says "There’s nothing you can take to remove the radioactive elements from your body once you’ve eaten them," she is for some reason forgetting the fact that after Chernobyl one group of children were given spirulina (sent by the British), and it was observed that considerable 'material' came out in the urine. The other group who did not receive spirulina did not have this occurring and did less well in the coming months. I have also come across many articles on the net that refer to one substance or another that apparently has this capacity also. And for years there have been various alternative practitioners who have presented ways to remove things like mercury from the body. So I am not sure why she is so pessimistic. In any case whenever I read or hear someone say there is nothing that can be done or no way to re-mediate, I think to myself that these are not scientific remarks but emotional ones.

    Yes, something can be done about Fukushima–but there is no political will at present to do it. The USA seems to be in a trance as does the EU. As for China and the Russian Federation I do not know.

    • Sadbuttrue Sadbuttrue

      I believe Mike Adams mentioned in the Fukushima Solutions conference on Saturday that Prussian Blue removes cesium 137 from the body. It exits the body but then makes its way into the waste treatment facility and so on but at least it removes it from the body.

      • Capt. Nemo Capt. Nemo

        Obtain some steel barrels and take them to WIPP. Better, take them to Washington, D. C. where you and friends can rent a storage area.


      you're likely right, Nemo. However, I'll forgive Caldicott for hinting that prevention is the key to survival…

      • earthsmith earthsmith

        Spirulina grows in waterways so you must be careful of the source. Most waterways are way polluted(toxic waste,rain etc.) It can be grown indoors but you still have water that must be filtered and this takes away vital minerals.
        Not trying to be a pessimist but bio-accumulation is in effect along with bio- magnification and we sit at the top. Water born plants absorb toxins like sponges.
        Cholera also has been shown to remove heavy metals a study with that was also done in Russia but same problems.
        There will be so many different types of radionuclides flowing from that plant forever that I don't know if previous studies will be valid(daughters)

          obewanspeaks: I knew you were good for something more than holding some heavy duty blue flashlight.

          That was an interesting read about Russia. The US and most other nations suffering low birth rates (I think due more to hopelessness and a bleak future with low paying jobs) and here Russia is dying off at younger and younger ages. Putin expanding towards a fallout zone is a brain dead idea but maybe he is looking to add conscripts to his armies.

          A general malaise either physically or mentally from to much socialism or low level nuke fallout or both, takes its toll.

          I'm surprised the report was allowed out in the open.

      CHelation therapy is is a wee bit more difficult to grasp, and most people have no clue about self empowering, lifestyle changes.

      They go to the doc, get the 'good's and then often have to declare bankruptcy even WITH insurance.

      They cannot afford any other options.

      So for her, it is simpler to just talk about the TERMINAL dangers of nuclear and leave it at that.

        Hey Doc, you are right, took my wife and I 10 years to pay off the debt incurred from my cancer treatment and they only gave me a year to figure out how many "Dasies" I was going to push, but fooled them, grew my own food, ate hot peppers, veg diet and I am still kicking, out lived my oncologist.

        • Time Is Short Time Is Short

          Anyone breathing after 3/11 has rad isotopes in their lungs. Now it's coming in the water and food. Even if we were able to remove 99% of it, there's still plenty left to kill us fairly quickly, especially the children.

          Just think about the isotopes mixing with all the GMO foods. Will it accelerate the cell mutation/destruction process? You bet. Exponentially.

    And they had Dr. Caldicott in the "fair, unbiased documentary" about nuclear power.

    Except they didn't interview her. They just rolled news footage of her shouting at a rally.

    "Oh, look at the crazy lady".

    Sometimes I feel that Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad (itself an examination of the same arrogant hubris that defines the nuclear industry) said it best: "I can believe that there might not be a heaven. But I can't NOT believe there's a hell."

      • demise demise

        I totally agree, but the basic problem is low information voters and massively corrupted government officials. American politics is a popularity contest and not a best candidate contest. Who can lie and talk the best is the key. Lying and stonewalling is in overdrive right now by both the Japanese and US governments. The criteria that most voters use to pick candidates is truly superficial so the public will suffer from their own stupidity.

        We will be dying slow painful deaths from Japanese meltdowns and WIPP. The meltdown plum covers 70% of North America. The WIPP covers most of the rest. This makes me wonder if this was not planned by some group to make sure all of NA is completely screwed?

        Back to our corrupt government. The accident stonewalling is a very political situation. The government is stonewalling all nuclear accident news so not to affect elections which is already not in their favor. Only independent sources or organizations not tied to network conglomerates are reporting about this.

        • Please dive deeper.. Politics is currently driven by money.

          Money is overwhelmingly coming 10 to 1 from corporate 'special' interests.

          The person getting the most money wins.

          Corporations out spend every other 'interest' including citizens 10 to 1 or more.

          Guess who wins? the corporate candidate.

          Now add the corporate controlled mass media.. figure it out.

          The way out?

          Vote only for non corporate money candidates.

          But then most people are caught by fear and programming. So they keep voting for the worst possible, money controlled candidates who lie and promise and cheat and steal, just to get into office.

          Nuclear money is just one of those big piles of cash…

We need another Woodstock and some young blood in this effort. IMO.

  • * Energy News followers are hard pressed to keep up with and understand the torrent of radiation related news –let alone to cope with our deteriorating security –and that includes me.

    * We also seem largely oblivious to genuine alternatives –which might allow our society to get a handle on events.

(Are you looking forward to casting your vote for Hillary? —Instead of who'll end up being the GOP's Prince of Darkness alternative.)

  • Capt. Nemo Capt. Nemo

    One hundred years ago very few people could have grasped the idea of large jet airplanes. Two hundred years ago talking of radio, televisions, computers, etc. might have gotten you a place at Bedlam. I am sure something can be done. I am sure you can remove radioactive material from the human body. But neither of these thing will happen if they "can not be done". So an intelligent step would be to use the expression "at present we do not know what can be done with Fukushima . . ." Keep in mind that while some exposed during the Chernobyl meltdown died, others did not. Why? Same basic human bodies. Some bodies had better detoxing capacity. Maybe they ate better before and after. There is no point resisting the inevitable! That is a deeply seated Western trait unfortunately. The sorrows of young Westerners. Instead of despairing which has a very low success rate, put the energy into discovery. Be a scientist.


      totally agree, Nemo. Great 'tude brother…

    Helen Caldicott
    I love what you are doing, Dr. Caldicott, and the value of your voice to our cause is priceless.
    But take a vacation, will you?
    You need a little break.
    Because the human race can, and must, do something to mitigate Fukushima's horrible course.
    It is, after all, only a question of money, corporate profits, and the political institutions that keep the people powerless, that keeps us from solving some of these problems.
    And we can always change the way we are doing (or not doing) things.
    We can always make up our minds to do things differently.
    We can always change the systems that operate society in such a way as to facilitate an appropriate response.

    (You are only right, Helen, if we continue to do NOTHING at all about Fukushima.)

    What should be, and MUST BE, done?
    1. Locate and map Corium1-3, wherever they may be. 2014
    2. Extend the Underground Impermeable Wall entirely around Reactors1-4, so that groundwater flows around, rather than right under, the ruins. 2015
    3. Build a concrete foundation of reinforced concrete 100' wide, 100' deep into the bedrock under the aquifer.
    4. Build a Sarcophagus over Reactors1-4 of reinforced concrete and lead, designed to withstand 10,000 year earthquakes and tsunamis.

        Shut down all nuke plants, then run the Pacific Ocean through a filter. EASY. It will only take longer than what time we have, BUT, better than doing nothing. or not.

    • What can be done towards internal remediation of radioactive contamination in the body?

      Dr. Caldicott says that it cannot be done as per the above statement.

      I am not sure, or should I say, I don't 'really' know.

      I would like to 'believe' that we can and should be doing something. Usually, something is better than nothing.

      Things like detoxifying, eating properly and cautiously seems like it can't hurt. Cleansing out metals and chemicals that the radiation may 'cling' to may help.

      On the other hand, knowing how radiation works, and that it contaminates everything it comes into contact with, it only makes sense that once the TISSUE has been EXPOSED to RADIATION, then the DAMAGE is DONE.

      Many of the sites or people touting the ability to help 'cleanse' radiation also want to sell you a product or book. This makes me leery. 😉

  • Socrates

    We have a culture that is entirely based on quarterly corporate profits and the myth of a free market. It is a "me" society, not "we" society. The economy is financialized with huge amouts of money running a two-party system that is controlled by an oligarchy. The ecological system is headed for the rocks because the pseudo-free market oligarchy controls it.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

      I think it is more fascism than free market. When Bill Gates is allowed a monopoly, e.g., there is no chance for a free market to operate. Ditto for huge governmental subsidies and loan guarantees to nuclear energy, and also insurance provided by the government for liability–but you can't sue the government for liability.

        Centralized power companies using oil, gas, coal and nuclear favor central grids to make profits from consumers. Up to 98% of the energy is lost in transmission alone. This is a misallocation of market forces, a limited monopoly and fascism.

        Decentralized solar, wind and hydo-power would eliminate this. Thd petro-dollar is unnecessary, too.

        • 1% versus the 99%. Top down versus bottoms up..

          It is all rather simple really.

          Vote for non corporate, non 1% candidates.

    The New Terrorist Threat from the East!!!!!!!!!

    It is a good question why the response of the world community of nations has thus far been so lackadaisical. Obama,and before him Bush, has been over eager to engage militarily and make matters worse . . . Just recently 5 billions dollars were squandered on Ukraine where things are now of course worse.

    But as far as I know the only giving to Japan has been some dangerous relief and help right after the Tsunami. Money and some military lives. As far as I know the Obamas do not have a door into an alternative universe where things are done wisely. So their lives are also in the balance.

    Radioactivity may need to be characterized as the new terrorist threat which would get John McCain up and running. Al Qaedactivity. Bin Cesium. Jihad 239. Rag headium
    could be the new cognomen for Plutonium on the loose.

    In comments to a previous thread, a member (combo melt) posted the link below the asterisks. Those in this forum who insist that there is no remediation possible — something I deeply fear — should listen to the lecture by David Yurth. (Mnemonic tip: Yurt + Earth.) His claims need to reappear regularly in enenews, to balance the justifiable anger and despair. Yurth claims that proven methods to reduce radioactivity from NPPs to background levels exist, but that these methods are suppressed by corporations that benefit from the current power structure/control system.

    If Yurth and those he cites are correct, there is at last a rallying point for those who are awake to the existential dangers of the current generation of NPPs.

    Combomelt also posted these important links below the next asterisks. Vesperman is the second name to remember. So: Yurth and Vesperman. I intend to learn more about their work.




  • J.

    (From previous message)


    The first PDF by Vesperman is 243 pages. No shortage of detail, no nonsense. I'll print and read.

    Caveat inevitable: Vesperman and Yurth obviously have business interests. This does not in any way discredit their claims — business is a tool to get things done — but of course it will be used against them, by the very people who take massive corporate welfare and abuse the power structure to their own advantage.

    If their claims are true, what can ordinary people do to advance their work? Yurth says he and his team will never again go through the usual channels, that the system is too broken to fix. How does anyone proceed?

    • waves

      Hey "J." The problem is….if I heard Yurth right….it was the DOE itself who shut down his ideas for getting rid of nuclear waste.

      I think he said at some point he was threatened by a DOE employee with arrest through FISA without representation…..then another DOE employee tried to help get Yurths project through but at the last minute was told he couldnt help him….has to with something about there being alot of money in waste….”deep pockets.”…..I could have heard wrong but I think thats what was said.

      Did anybody get to see the second day of the conference? Does anybody know what happened?

      • J.

        Yes, I heard the same things you did. That's why I wonder what on earth anyone can do to support Yurth and colleagues. It's actually worse than what you state above, because Yurth suggests that much of the work that has to be done requires DOE cooperation and collaboration. It seems he's between a rock and a hard place in a Catch 22 situation — he can't make progress with the DOE, can't make progress without the DOE.

        I missed Day Two. I hope it will be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo.

    "continue probably for the rest of time because no one can find out where the molten cores of a hundred of seethingly hot uranium are. No one can get near them because they’re so radioactive, and the water will continue to flow over them, I guess, forever more. I can’t see any other way out of it. . ."

    There is only one doctor that knows all about DNA, nature is an aspect of that doctor.

    Man thinks he knows everything and is the driver of his pride, when understanding how stupid he is, how fragile, how both masculine and feminine; he becomes transformed into a truth being. Knowing that he will shed the body and his energy not dying, but transforming back to where it came from.

    Live long and benefit from truth.

    • Angela_R

      atomicistheword: "Knowing that he will shed the body and his energy not dying" yes

      "but transforming back to where it came from"
      I'm more inclined to say
      "but returning to be with the Source it came from"

      For those that believe they die, well they do. That is the only knowledge they have.

      Today there are two echoes:
      "I will bring to an end those ruining the earth,"
      "unless those days are cut short no flesh will be saved."

      • atomicistheword

        hi, my friend. there is transfiguration in the process. Some call it enlightenment, nirvana, sanity, repentance, truth, awakening etc, etc, etc.

        Dying of this consuming world (rejecting consumerism) Then as you state.

        Two years with blood moons on sacred days 2014-2015, pole reversals in the sun, solar anger.

        The last book states what will happen to those who went out to destroy earth, reversed immoral dogs, beasts without conscience. Nature will destroy haarps with the weapon used in the city of palm trees. I can feel it humming with great anger, such a pulse, technology not known on this world.

        That reminds me, I haven't seen Indiana Jones for a while. 😉

        • Angela_R

          Atomicistheword, "there is transfiguration in the process."
          Yes, and transfiguration can occur more than once.

          The awakening can lead to discernment (helps sanity), enlightenment provides the way to true knowledge and the other states may be encountered on the journey.

          There is more to come than the sun's reversal, for instance, I suspect that the outer core of the earth is showing signs of a geomagnetic change. The universe is not stationary, it is alive, it moves, it responds.

          There are many records in the past, from various sources, offering clues to the present, but these have been made difficult by distortions. This week the Blue Star Spica brings to mind the Hopi Indian prophecy of Kachina.

      ok this is a dream but imagine if these Nuclear GE execs The makers of the Mark1 had a come to jesus moment when they realized up close and personal how completely fuked the situation is.

      sigh.. never mind it was just a dream but here we have a chance to observe the deep heart of darkness of these people and personally i will be interested in how the PR is handled regarding this so called decommissioning. Decommissioning to include dumping all the poisoned reactor water by the tonne to the end of time ?

    The math is totally WRONG on the amounts of water being poured to cool(?) those melted cores! First and foremost, TEPCO has lied about EVERYTHING…E V E R Y T H I N G! So the 300-400 tons of deadly irradiated sea water "leaking" daily is a lie or, to say it another way – fictional fact!

    Scientific estimation during an emergency meltdown:
    Water is poured on ONE melting core at 30,000 gallons per minute –
    – 8.3 pounds is the weight of one gallon of water
    – 30,000 gallons of water weight 249,000 pounds
    – A short TON, commonly used in the US, is equal to 2000 pounds

    ONE MINUTE – of water flowing over a ONE melted core is 124.5 TONS of water.
    ONE HOUR – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 7,470 TONS of water.
    24 HOURS – of water flowing over a SINGLE melted core is 79,280 TONS of water.

    These are the hard numbers from real experts.
    Even the good Doctor simply takes TEPCO's words and runs with them. Proof is required to verify their leakage numbers.
    We have NO third-party confirmation of any solid quantifiable data.
    We only have a lying company's press releases as data….ha, ha, fuking ha!

    If we say that in 24 hours of cooling 79,280 tons of sea water was used on ONE melted core then, 237,840 tons are used on THREE melted cores a day. So, lets cut the numbers in half to 118,920 tons used for three cores…still a staggering number! So if it were gallons gasoline instead of water, that would be 237,840,000 gallons of gas flowing…

      Re: Massive feed and bleed

      You may be right, but the water leaching over the buried coriums from the mountain underground aquifer in the sandstone fissures meeting up with tidal flow fissures may be ten times your massive estimate. 🙂

      I question whether they are using as much sprayed concrete pump water inside the buildings because that leakage adds to ground-soil radiation and could make the plant so radioactive that it is impossible for humans to do anything outside the buildings. Which may be the case already.

      I have always thought the fish kills 5,000 miles away meant there was far more radiation in the water than any government agency will admit. The USS Reagan crew were thrown to the wolves and they drank the toxic Fukushima water. The nuclear coverup by the US and Japan will one day blow up into a health pandemic and many different coalitions will combine to counter the government lies.

      Helen Caldicott is exactly correct. The admission that Fukushima is a mass extinction event (as defined by at least 60% casualties) will put pressure to halt all the nuclear plants. America can live without those monsters. The 64 trillion dollar question will be: Can the Russians, Chinese, and Indians also go cold turkey? Probably nit until they blow a couple of plants in their own countries.

    • You are correct.. unless TEPCO can PROVE otherwise..

      They keep getting caught in a web of their own lies..

Better, I have to let him know about the radiation and perhaps he can start working on one that covers all we need . If I talked to him. I could get everything at cost .. Look up his plans ect for rad detectors and tell me what you think ..let hi know he better get on the train because it's leaving ..he's working on antigravity guns now ..that's not going to help us will it

    The farther that mankind has gone down the road ib civilization, the more we have lost. The crucial spark of creativity is not to be found by running to some corporate cash-flow in order to be taken care of for all of days of your life.
    Where is the creativity in that?
    There is none. Zip. Nada.
    The creative spirit that is inherent in each and every individual is what needs to be unleashed in order to seek and find solutions to individual and the world's problems.
    It is the individual capable of spontaneous, creative thought that will provide the answers.

    Let the corporations go and set the spark for your creative conflagration! The world is waiting and there is no time to waste!

    The nuclear shills hope that us anti-nukes get Fukushima Fatigue, that we will get tired of discussing an impossibly dire situation, join the "nothing can be done" crowd.

    That is clearly how the playbook is working across the globe.

    I say it is time to tell our children, near and far.

    Let them realize that their futures are gone.

    With our social media circles, it shouldn't take more than a few days to get millions of school aged children livid and apoplectic.

    I have immense respect for Helen Cadicott, and she is correct about the 76 thousand gallons (at least) of radioactive water leaching daily into the pacific, but it will not be forever The cores will eventually completely dissolve away into in the ocean and the surrounding soil. At this point Tepco and Japan will have a small respite and the rest of the world will suffer the impending and unavoidable fate that our oceans will forever be permanently poisoned and all life on this planet will die. The Mayan calendar seems to have been correct, 2011 was the beginning of the end for all carbon life on this planet. The food chains will collapse and people will starve. Cancer rates will continue to climb to 1 out of 2 within 5 years and new births will not keep up with the mortality rates. But the real killer will be the reduction of phytoplankton which will decrease our air, and whatever life has been lucky enough to last the fallout will die from suffocation. Our only chance is that man will figure out how spot and and began to filter out all the isotopes or smoother miraculous invention of spot and eliminate. What Helen fails to see is that we don't live in a democracy and haven't for at least 40 years. We live in a facist corporate controlled new world order that charades as a democracy. Voting is a mass pacifier. The people we get to chose between (republican or democrate) are both the same, and would lose their jobs if they didn't do what their bosses (masters) tell them.

    "Placing Band-Aids over a 6-inch-deep-n-a-foot-long gushing cut resulted from a life-threatening accident" is one way to describe what TEPCo and the Japanese government are doing in their clean up effort in the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi's nuclear power plants nuclear explosions.

    Why is Helen Caldicott telling everybody to get depressed?

    Doesn't she know that smiling is the only way to save the planet?

    C'mon everybody smile!

    If we can train all of the fish and wildlife to smile too we can lick this radioactivity problem in no time.

    But remember after we get everyone and every creature to smile if just one person or creature stops smiling the meltdown will start up again and we will have to start all over again or we will all be fried!

    So c'mon everybody time is a wasting, smile!
