Title: Fukushima’s radioactive leak: ‘no way to filter this stuff out’ – expert
Source: The Voice of Russia
Author: Angela Davis
Date: Sept. 13, 2013

Paul Gunter, director of Reactor Oversight at Beyond Nuclear

[...] our concerns [are] that a reverse tsunami of radioactivity is now moving back in to the ocean from the Fukushima wreckage and it is carrying radioactivity.

[...] Right now Fukushima is a nuclear catastrophe that remains out of control now for more than 2.5 years. Neither Tokyo Electric Power Company or the Japanese government have been able to stanch this radioactive hemorrhage that is occurring from the plant. So, the extent of the accident can spread right now is unknown. [...]

[...] the concern here is that the radioactivity will linger, it will bio-magnify up through the food chain and again the accident is not under control. There is more and more radioactivity, more and more radioactive isotopes not just tritium but we are concerned about the radioactive cesium and the radioactive strontiums, radioactive iodine. These are all now moving in [ground] water through the wreckage of the reactor meltdowns and into the ocean. So, this represents a very long-term problem that will only get worse over time as more radioactivity enters the food chain. [...]

    What people don't seem to realize is that the radiation has been coming out of the Fuku reactors for the last 2 1/2 years, not just an initial dump, and it's been getting worse the whole time. So yes the initial wave is going to be hitting the west coast North America but it's going to get continually stronger and stronger. As those isotopes wash up on shore and mix into the local ecology the coastal regions are going to become radioactive wastelands. Some of the most beautiful and fragile ecology in all of North America is going to be so contaminated that no one will be inhabit it for hundreds of years.

    Produce, that most of North America relies on, will be poisoned. The wine producing regions all long the coast, gone. All the rain forests from northern California to mid British Columbia will be devastated.

    TSUNAMI of lies :

    LIES about 9/11
    LIES about cheap and safe nuclear energy

  • Bio-magnify. Hmmmmm! I wonder why CBC Fox News CBS Time Warner Bros etc etc don't use that word? Their investigative reporting doesn't go beyond safe levels of no immediate concern washing upon our shores. Well, thats it! I lost my library card and am now forced into a bar. But don't worry, friends, alcohol doesn't effect me like other people…………

    The only thing positive that is going to come out of this disaster is, everything living thing and every person on the planet will suffer the SAME fate – rich or poor, smart or stupid, black or white….they are all going to pass into history really soon!

    I pray that all the politicians, nuclear power corporations, and people that have had undying support for nuclear power suffer the most painful of sicknesses from this.

    See, when you want to be the "exclusive power source" and be the only game in town…it comes back and bites you! Losers!

      history shows that crime pays. Theory of karma is anthropocentrically comforting but unsubstantiated. It calls for ABSOLUTE repayment or retribution, which is not possible. In this case, that billions of innocent animals would suffer the same fate as the few disconnected perpetrators is no justice at all, and there is in fact nothing good about it. Best thing in my view is if a secret organization actually forced the perpetrators out of position. Petitions will have no effect

        If you think that something is "unsubstantiated" then how do you know that it calls for something "absolute"? But that said, since at best we rarely seem to have "instant karma," people and other beings still suffer unjustly and severely — in this case, probably to the point of extinction.

        It's unthinkable but here we are. And I concur that "petitions will not work" — there is no one to even give them to! The U.N.? WHO and UNSCEAR are beholden to the IAEA, which is there to PROMOTE nuclear energy, not police it.

        Thought it was bad enough that "the American dream" is gone — that whole melting pot thing got wrecked. But now it is Earth Gone? What have we come to?

        Me, I want the perpetrators jailed permanently and worse. There is NOTHING they can do to repay for what they've already done. Yet here we are.

        That said, if a million of us out there screaming in the streets would do any good, I'd join in. It's sort of unbearable to do nothing.

          "Me, I want the perpetrators jailed permanently and worse." Me too. But regular jail–no more country club jail. We don't need two prison systems. If the people knew they might have to go to regular jail, it might slow them down.

          WNTF did you see the fairness experiment with monkeys ?

          The wiki piece on karma is pretty good. Note the difference in Buddhist and new age interpretations. This theory that the universe is just or righteous by virtue of inherent perfection of cause and effect became infused into western society as a kind of morph with a tooth for a tooth. The karma of Buddhism is different.

          Does theological karma theory stand up to scrutiny? Is it substantiated by observation or logic? Is it really a law of the universe if it only "sort of works"?

          If you flay the skin of John in a past life, must not John have to repay the experience in exacting detail….even down to the same flaying tool, time and temperature, emotional backdrop,…to the atom if you want to be serious, in order for karma to be perfect? Or maybe its just a fudgy law.

          To be comprehensive, you have to factor in time dilation, Einsteins theory which is more proven than a just universe. The interdependence of time, space and gravity actually throws out the window most religious/ philosophical dogma like karma. To fulfill the capuchin monkey or human idea of a just karma, result would absolutely have to follow action, but in the universe we know now, such is not the case

            Its moot, but this idea of inherent justice sets a psychological milieu that permits manipulation by psychopaths and unscrupulous. It extends in many different directions; "nothing so catastrophic like poisoning of the entire pacific ocean could occur", or "mankind will survive", "if you choose good will, peace will be restored" or "ask with civil decorum (petition) and your wish (grape if capuchin) shall naturally be rewarded"

            Good will is good, but generally these are just wishful or even dangerous thought patterns. The public has had these ideas and look what happened.

            I dont want the perpetrators of nuke madness in jail, I want them never to have existed or at least for the public to have STOPPED them early on. Jail time wont create justice or restore loved ones

            (above, I meant theosophical but theological works too.)

    It's not just the radionuclide contamination that is devastating the marine creatures. The reverse tsunami contains everything in mans hands that is toxic, washed out to sea by the original tsunami…

    We need a worldwide consortium made up of experts in the field to start brainstorming solutions to what is happening in Fukushima and what can be done to FIX it. We need them NOW. Each country will also need to commit funds to this effort, since it is and will continue to affect the entire planet. The consequences could be the extinction of all life on earth. It is past time to do this. Japan is calling for help and they can not handle it alone.

    That undying support for the nuclear program and other corporate death programs was never really that which it was called. It was, however, weak persons proclivity to greed and to get on board of the federal reserve note (certificates noting debt) being provided in order to establish and preserve a lavish lifestyle. regardless of the consequences for the rest of humanity.
