Columnist Kay MacDuffee, for the Caledon Enterprise (Greater Toronto), Nov. 13, 2013: [...] perhaps the most pressing and disturbing information that goes unreported is the urgency of Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant situation. [...] 300 tons [now reported to be 400 tons] of contaminated water are flowing out of this facility daily into the Pacific Ocean [...] While much of the world has continued with their lives forgetting about the Fukushima disaster, scientists from across the world who have been monitoring the radiation leaking out of Fukushima Plant, have found that the rate of flow has actually been increasing dramatically, causing a major global threat to all living flora and fauna. [...] I am always reluctant to spread bad news, but the truth must be told. I have read and researched the facts on this story from many sources and it keeps coming up the same. This, despite the fact that after each CBS news story reporting radioactivity signs on the US West Coast, the reporter adds with a cheery smile, “But you can still play and swim on the beaches here”. Or “But you may still eat (the contaminated) bluefin tuna.” [...] And more and more often, mainstream media is not the best source of information.

Fairewinds Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen, Coast to Coast AM with John B. Wells, Nov. 9, 2013 (at 23:15 in): The only thing that’s saving us is the internet. This happened at Chernobyl and it happened at TMI – but government controlled the printing presses. With the internet, we control the printing press. Unfortunately the government is still sitting on the information.

          Blue_Heron….Amateur Radio is why we knew about Chernobyl within hours (or less) than the Gorbachev. It took about 4 days for the political hacks in USSR to cave in "up the the chain" to
          admit there was any sort of problem. If queried from the top down, there were many many levels of administrators who were clueless because those below them were hoping to cover up any sort of problem on "their watch". Amateur Radio allowed the world to have up to the minute near real time information that the MSM could/would never have pulled off. The same will be the case in any sort of future large scale disaster, natural or man made. de WA7MLH

          Don't see a lot of ham radio recievers at major retail outlets. Are there even any radios with shortwave frequency tuners being sold. I have not been looking, but old radios at garage sales are the only ones I seem to see with those frequency ranges, and they are rare. I bought a Grundig reciever at an auction for $1.00; I guess that reveals a lack of interest. One older gentlemen came up to me after I bought it and asked, " I wonder if it works, the battery is dead." My, that's all it took to kill interest? I bought it and put a battery in it, it works fine.

          If we have a Carrington event, and fires break out nationwide there will be no internet. Lack of communication will be the rule. I will probably die from heart attack, thinking about all the nuke plants melting down.

      No the Internet is only the media, only we can save ourselves from ourselves and you can talk all day about it, but to make a impact you have to physically make a stance, in a non aggressive manner, Take the salt boycott in India, in our case it should be withholding electic payment, every other month, that is progressive, buy electic only from renewable energy companies, etc, as a collective we win and we need a far larger base than we have now.

      I don't see a hope for this. Even if they bury the entire Fukushima complex, how will you clean up the Ocean? They dropped 400T/day, for almost 3 YEARS, or around 1020 days as now.

      400T * 1020 = 408,000T. This as Ocean only, no one ever know how much that crap went to atmosfer. We polluated everything, everywhere too since before Industrial Revolution. I have no doubt we killed the planet and passed the red line (where Nature could recover). To me is already too late. If you feed the mass with all this news, it will do WORSE than good. They will go into insane mode, zombie mode, killing mode, rapping mode, etc, etc. Think about it.

        You are right. The masses can't know the truth or it would start Armageddon.

        And also, if we were to turn off all of the nuclear power plants, and bad as they are, can you think about what would happen if cities and countries didn't have electricity that they have come to rely on? Millions or billions would also die in a scenario like that too, and it would be very violent.

    Surprisingly many of those with whom I share about Fukushima, about the severity of the problem, many tell me that they are in conscious denial since they feel they cannot do anything about it, so they decide to just keep living their lives and be ignorant. And those are intelligent, educated people who are usually not ignorant. The sense of helplessness, of "there is no place to hide" is befalling me too – what can really be done ? Anybody some suggestions ? I was also thinking of informing my direct neighborhood – but to do what ? It is very depressing as it is and is affecting my mood a great deal. Is anybody out there with some suggestions ? I have bought Dr. Apley's book – it is so complicated and sophisticated that I stopped trying to dig into it. Eating foods that "protect" from radiation will be contaminated – so where is the point ? A Geiger Meter does not really tell you what kind of radiation in which amount is present, so – what to do ???

      Homolumina, first, take a deep breath.

      What you are experiencing with people is a common coping mechanism. There are times that you can get through to them, but it usually takes a lot of energy (no pun intended). It's called Cognitive Dissonance and sometimes Normalcy Bias. It's not that they are unintelligent. It's not that they don't care or they don't care about their kids. Their minds see that the problem is so massive (kind of like when you pose the question, "What's beyond the universe? Are we in a fishbowl on a desk? or is space infinite?) Human minds are not designed to deal with constant unknowns. They crave and gravitate towards structure–any structure. Something to point at and say, "There! That's the answer!"

      What can be done? I'm not a nuclear physicist nor an engineer. What I do know is isotopes–once in the environment, there is no "cleaning them up". Once dispersed this way into our environment, you can't control them any more than you can control the rays of the sun.

      Your mood is not unusual, either. Have you heard of the stages of grief? I see this all the time in terminal patients. Those who understand it, stand by and allow the person to go through the process, helping when we can–being silent when we can't. Some come through to acceptance, some don't.

      My question to you is, what gives your life meaning? If I were to tell you that you will die in 1 year, what would you do with that time in order to make your life meaningful?…

        Dear MochiM.,

        thank you so much for taking the time and reply… All you say deeply resonates with me and I have come to the point where I think about preparing to die and help people die… accepting that we all are born to die and now our dying is affected by the radioactive pollution. And you are right, I am grieving, first there was so much anger, and under all that anger is an immeasurable amount of grief – I love our planet, all life so very very much, it gives my life meaning… and it is being destroyed by anthropocentric criminals. I want to prepare to work in palliative care, while maintaining my connection and communication with nature. But there is nothing I can tell those who are stuck in cognitive dissonance, this is isolating… The realization of what is happening is crushing, and it gives me solace to know I am not alone – so thank you for that. Warmly – Homolumina

          Homolumina, my post was cut off after that last.

          What my ending statement was…"What gives your life meaning?"

          Do that.
          ____________

          You seem to have a direction, you know what you want to do, what would make your life mean something to you. That is all that counts. If you make someone happy or ease their pain along the way, then you'll find that's really just a bonus.

          You're not alone. A lot of the spitting anger that you see on these blogs–a lot of the "doomers"–you'll also see "fixers", the ones convinced that there is SOME WAY if we just TRY HARD ENOUGH to figure this out.

          Stages of grief. Anger, bargaining, depression, denial, and finally–acceptance. It's normal to flip between them, too. Just when you think you've got a handle on it–BAM!–life knocks you on your keister.

          The truth is clear in this disaster–it's right in front of everyone, every single day. Dying sea life by the the hundreds of thousands, cancers in animals as well as people, government obfuscation, raised limits of "safe radiation levels" (did radiation change when I wasn't looking? What made it safer today at 1000x the dose than yesterday?), rampant cases of neurological diseases such as Fibromyalgia, MS, mental illnesses, Chronic Fatigue–it's all there, dots connected.

          Do your best, Homolumina, for yourself and for others.

      An odd sounding helicopter just flew over my apartment. Never know. They could drop a radioactive cloud on area and the people there would die of cancer. Soon, that could be a S.O.P. after all they can blame it on Japan. "Just another normal radioactive cloud." Nothing to see here, folks, move along.

    Just another nuclear shill "Jonesing" for fees and favors. Maybe this is one of the reasons that Forbes Magazine is currently up for sale.

    Their research and reporting are un-scienfic, inaccurate, and frequently misleading. In the Article, "Fukushima Radiation In Pacific Tuna Is Equal To One Twentieth Of A Banana" <http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2013/11/16/fukushima-radiation-in-pacific-tuna-is-equal-to-one-twentieth-of-a-banana/&gt;,

    Tim Worsal relies on 2 year old data as if there has been no change in the the amount of radionuclides entering the
    atmosphere and the ocean, to date. He uses the debunked lie that bananas are more radioactive than the tuna tested.

    His faulty suppositions and conclusions are based on tuna tested in August of 2011. What kind of professional writer or journalist would ignore nearly 2 years of a dynamically changing event, basing his conclusions on data that does not represent current conditions that are requisite for an accurate and honest appraisal?

    That would be a shill. Fuku you Tim Worsal! If you'll give me your mailing address, I'll be please to send you a case of those Pacific tuna you say are safer to eat than a banana.

      Cisco……I finished college back in 1981. My girlfriend graduated with a BA in Technical Journalism. Hence, my social life was permeated with journalism majors. The essence of their curriculum was to learn how to write about a topic they had little understanding of so that an 8th grader (US) would be able read the story and not be overwhelmed.

      The journalist of those days had little to no choice on what stories they were assigned to write about. Their stories were subject to dictatorial editing by the papers owner/editor.
      All too often they were given an agenda to slant, i.e "spin".
      Their job was to gather and organize information under some one else's bias.

      Fast forward to now….Hard to call the MSM writers of the present "journalists". The spelling errors and garbled grammar in today's MSM stories reek of little or no college education. A professor friend of mine has a horrible problem with students thinking that if spell check finds no errors then "good to go", with no thought for actual grammar or punctuation. The MSM writers are no different than the talking heads on TV. Just youtube search for
      Proof That News is Controlled by a Central Script Writer.
      Very disturbing to watch!

      So Mr.Worsal has made a Faustian bargain with the WSJ.
      No surprise there.
      His higher ups have an agenda….keep the herd calm.
      His next story could be one about genital acne…nothing to be concerned about. Go shopping after the game! Party on Garth!!

    They call this a nuclear accident. I disagree. With better planning this could have been prevented. So it is actually an act of wanton endangerment of the entire planet. An example of an accident would be something like a meteor landing on the power plant.

    I propose that someone try to get a direct answer from Tepco to this question: If a meteor such as the recent one in Russia that was seen and videotaped at Chelyabinsk had hit the Fukushima nuclear plants, would it have been an extinction level event and just how much radiation would be released into the atmosphere from the spent and otherwise nuclear fuel rods at the plant.

    And then ask government authorities to answer whether or not it is irresponsible for a private citizen to keep an equivalent amount of destructive power potential on his property in the form of TNT.

    There is zero tolerance for everything unless some corporation is making money on it and makes campaign contributions. Then the wheels are greased and our "elected officials" tell us to just suck it up.

    They can also raise the permissible limits.

    A "safe" is a function of the magnitude of campaign contributions by industry. Just coincidentally, the voting record of the politician correlates almost 100% with the amount of campaign contributions received.

    I just read a story in the paper about a murderous crime boss convicted finally at age 84 for crimes committed in the '70s and '80s.
    The story said that the trial revealed FBI complicity.

    Japanese company caused toxic radioactive contamination of the whole Pacific Ocean. Japanese government says everything is safe and contained in the harbor. They put up a sign forbidding escape to the ocean, I guess.

    World Trade Center turns to dust with an incredible amount of asbestos in it. US EPA declared that air is safe to breathe.

    Man gets pulled over for no seatbelt. Says his Coke fell on the floor and he unbuckled to get it up before the lid fell off. Man gets twenty-five dollar fine.

    I am afraid to eat seafood, milk, etc. Government raises radiation standard allowed amount.

    Man goes to doctor and says he is depressed. Doctor gives prescription for depression. Years later, doctor asks patient if he is happy. Patient says not really. Doctor says pick up prescription on the way out. Patient sees counselor. By the end of first session, both leave office crying about how life sucks. Next session, counselor determined not to have same outcome.
    What if life really does suck? At least the life we have. I for one applaud the Catholic Church standing up and insisting the earth was flat. I hope it slowed the development of science just a little. If they had been successful just a bit longer, Einstein may never have realized that that atom could be split for a few…

    Homolumina, I continue to post that all is not lost. I've said what I know to be true many ways and offered resources. I would repeat but the way this website works, repetition won't get printed. Some computer program that recognizes words is running so I have to come up with a new way to say what I have said before.
    A few years ago a book called The Secret was a best seller. It oversimplifies the Law of Attraction but it does a good job of bringing attention to its power. If you are preoccupied with negativity of some sort, it is likely to manifest. Thoughts are energy and affect matter. We are all basically energy and we share our energetic underpinnings with our world. One example: we are the ocean.
    What you can do in your neighborhood is bring the truth to those in denial or who just aren't paying attention. It is up to each neighbor to accept or reject. Tell them to do their own research, not just on the problem, but on solutions. For those it means thinking outside the box, trusting that solutions will manifest once the lessons of this disaster are learned.
    In my own research, my work and my life, I have seen the power of focused positive thought, namely, healing. If each person worked to be a beacon of light, we would banish the darkness.

      My lack of entousiasme stems from being pessimistic about humanity's capability to change from the inside..and the time left..
      And the mind of politicians taken hostage by the industry aka the "pushers"

      You know I smoked a lot of grass.
      Oh Lord! I popped a lot of pills.
      But I've never touched nothin'
      That my spirit couldn't kill.
      You know I've seen a lot of people walking 'round
      With tombstones in their eyes.
      But the pusher don't care
      If you live — or if you die.
      God Damn! The pusher.
      God Damn! The pusher.
      I said God Damn! God damn the pusher man.
      You know the dealer, the dealer is a man
      With a lump of grass in his hand.
      But the pusher is a monster
      Not a natural man.
      The dealer for a nickel
      Goin to sell you lots of sweet dreams.
      Ah…but the pusher will ruin your body;
      Lord he'll leave your mind to scream.
      God Damn! The pusher.
      God Damn! God damn the pusher.
      I said God Damn! God damn the pusher man.
      Well now if I were the president of this land
      You know I'd declare total war on the pusher man.
      I'd cut him if he stands, and I'd shoot him if he run,
      And I'd kill him with my bible, and my razor and my gun….
      GOD DAMN! The pusher
      God damn the pusher.
      I said God damn! God damn the pusher…

    Fukushima is a handicap and a warning. With luck, future generations will survive.

    Last week, Planet of the Apes was on cable tv. I just hope that it will not turn into On the Beach.

    These are real possibilities.

    Meanwhile, we must act "as if." Have we not lived under the shadow of nuclear war with duck and cover in the 50's. Knowing what we know, duck and cover procedures would not help survival rates. Bomb shelters were selling back then…

    Bomb shelters are still flying off the shelves and in great numbers/volume even today. :(

    Greetings from Japan. I went to check it out and left much faster than intended.
    My blogpost about that visit on Nov 13, 2013:

    PS: Low-Level Nuclear Waste is being sold as food in Japan. You'd never guess looking at the surfers and fishing boast on the Fukushima Coast…
