Fairewinds Energy Education, Apr. 10, 2014 — Chiho Kaneko, member of the Board of Directors of Fairewinds Energy Education originally from Iwate, Japan (at 10:30 in): I think about what’s unfolding in Japan today — I sense something grave is happening. I have heard many Fukushima people’s personal accounts of their family members or friends dying suddenly. In one case, a baby suddenly died — and these illnesses and sudden deaths are not happening only in Fukushima Prefecture — people are sicker in Tokyo [...] During my month-long stay in Japan in December and January, I too experienced unusual symptoms. I developed a skin rash that doesn’t heal. When I was in Fukushima, I developed a scratchy throat and pain in my eyes. Something is happening, and yet we cannot prove anything. The IAEA and Fukushima Medical University are working together to collect and collate the health data of Fukushima residents. Many residents fear that this effort is just a show — or worse yet, just for the sake of collecting secret data. Many people fear that the experts already have a forgone conclusion — the conclusion that if people get ill it is not because of the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. [...] The Fukushima Daiichi disaster opened the door for me to see how this is not a mere Japanese crisis, it’s a crisis that transcends geography and time. [...] What can we do now? Sometimes a big part of me feels the situation is too late to remedy. This is a situation mired with the world politics and economy, the struggle for power and money. [...] If we care about life, we must try to find ways to at least slow the pace of nuclear contamination and we must focus on what’s actually happening to humans, animals, and birds, and everything else on this planet — instead of consigning the interpretation of radiation’s effects to the so-called experts.

Asian Perspective Vol. 37 No. 4, Anders Pape Møller and Timothy A. Mousseau, Oct.-Dec. 2013: [...] The lack of interest by the nuclear industry in providing reliable information on the consequences of Chernobyl and Fukushima should not be ignored. This industry deals with investments of many hundred of billions of dollars, so business interests loom large. Of course, national and local oversight agencies monitor the industry, although as was demonstrated at both Chernobyl and Fukushima the same individuals tend to move between these different positions on a regular basis [...] Nowhere else than in the nuclear industry are scientists so partial with respect to research questions regarding public health or the ecological effects of low-dose radiation. One is reminded of the 1950s when medical doctors employed by the tobacco industry acted as witnesses in court cases about the role of tobacco as a cause of lung cancer. Perhaps history repeats itself? [...]

    Collateral damage, the cost of doing business. Everyone dies, so what matters as to when? Money is more important than people I don't know.

    Some sense of morality we have these days. If we can not move past this, we can not survive.

    "The truth is that once we have lost everything that sustains us from our soil to air to water, our home, our community, and our family, no amount of money can restore them."

    "But the most important choice of our lives was never available to any of us. We were not ALLOWED TO CHOOSE whether or not we wanted to accept all the unearthed uranium and the resulting radionuclides in our lives."

      I feel for this woman and I've seen her on videos before. In one, she talks about how families are forced to re-locate back to killer radiation or lose their living stipends.

      It's heartbreaking. But it's still dissertations. Where is THE RAGE? Every now and then, I see a youtubes where Japanese DO express rage and that really gets to me.

      I just keep feeling that their culture is too emotionally repressed to even have any CHANCE to survive. I mourn that, but still the lid of repression bothers me — both.

        I could never criticize the Japanese people who are victims. I think that radiation is enervating. I don't see any rage here also. I don't see a mass exodus from the West Coast. Radiation exposure takes away all the energy. The power of cell phone towers also is much stronger than you think. They are used to broadcast frequencies that control the emotions of people and the chemtrails are also dropping chemicals that pacify the population and then there is also fluoride and there is the flicker rate on TV. They've been experimenting on how to control the population for a long time. The GWEN towers were also built for population control. James Holmes in Colorado was used in an experiment of mind control and a GWEN tower was activated just when the Aurora theater shootings began.

        I, myself, have no desire to move anywhere else. I don't think that there is anywhere else to go. And, more importantly, I don't have any resources for moving. The Japanese have been much more active than people in the US about being anti-nuclear.

        All the nuclear technology has contributed to an ELE. It is all crazy behavior to keep building nuclear power plants and growing GMO plants. But criticizing the victims for not having rage is futile. And rage only brings about greater enslavement.

            However, with the proviso concerning rage: Rage can be constructive. Depends how it's harnessed. It's heartbreaking to see people just fold because they feel powerless to openly express ANYTHING.

                “…Edward Bernays, the so-called 'Father of Public Relations', believed that public manipulation was not only moral, but a necessity. He argued that ‘a small, invisible government who understands the mental processes and social patterns of the masses, rules public opinion by consent.’ This is necessary for the division of labor and to prevent chaos and confusion. ‘The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who understand the manipulation of public opinion’, wrote Bernays.[12] He also wrote, ‘We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized.’…"

            "Dear NaturalNews readers,

            "Two days ago, Organic Spies teamed up with Food Democracy Now to launch a campaign called "Operation Monsanto Stock Plunge," which Natural News publicized worldwide.

          I also see the argument that everything is a false flag when an individual or individuals do show rage just another psychological mind control technique to control the population. No one concedes that rage or despair even exists.

          Alex Jones is allowed to go on and on because he is part of the elite and part of the controlled opposition. Occupy Wall Street was started by the elite to get rid of opposition before the elections. The Arab Spring was also started by the elite to bring about greater enslavement. The use of uranium weapons around the world is destroying those lands forever. The people in power would rather die and have everyone else die than to give up that power.

          We are no better off than the Japanese. The atrocities of the 20th century are even greater than in this century. They have microwave weapons for crowd control that cause cancer. They were used in Iraq. And those that order the use of those weapons don't care if the weapons cause cancer in their own soldiers.

          After the American Revolution, Britain still controls the US as we can see because BP is still drilling for oil in the Gulf. The families of the appeasers to Hitler in the US and the UK during WWII are still in control. The heart of humans is both capable of great compassion and great treachery. And it is the free will of an individual that determines that person's choice.

                Agreed, stock. This topic is for the OT Forum, please, VanneV.

                But just to add my $0.02 to this topic.

                John Dalberg-Acton said:

                "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
                Great men are almost always bad men".

                The human race has stumbled onto technologies that can control and direct entire cultures.
                Those leaders/elites/corporations/governments who control and direct entire populations have been corrupted by the very power they wield.
                If people are allowed to have such power, if people are allowed to aquire great wealth, if corporations are allowed to turn the Earth into a supply store of resources for the taking, then those people and their institutions will necessarily become corrupted by their power and greed.
                It is the hearts of human beings that become sinister and corrupt.
                Changing those indiciduals in control, like the Arab Spring, soon turn the new rulers into monsters.

                No. In order to be free, the human race would have to throw down all human institutions, and utterly destroy every tool of power, leaving not so much as one brick on top of another.

                Afterwards, the human race would have to remain ever vigilant, lest any person or institution seek to reestablish corrupting power over others.

                  "If all goes as planned, TEPCO will raise the daily amount to 1,000 tons, which the utility estimates will cut the amount of radioactive water that accumulates by 20 to 100 tons per day.

                    You are most welcomed, Admin.

                    IMHO, Groundwater Contamination
                    and
                    Pacific Ocean Contamination
                    IS THE PRIMARY ISSUE
                    at Fukushima.

                    TEPCO's failure to deal with the Groundwater Comtamination Issue threatens the Pacific Ocean Ecosystem for thousands of years to come.
                    Future generations will view the TEPCO failure to deal with Pacific Ocean contamination, as our, their ancestors, historical failure.
                    We will be viewed as not having done enough to stop this contamination.

                    TEPCO's strategy will not work, IMO.
                    The groundwater is already contaminated with MOX fuel blasted from the Unit3 explosion over a 2km radius.
                    Additional contamination has been added by leakage from the uphill tank farm.
                    Even more contamination will come from pipes and tanks used previously to store highly contaminated cooling water.
                    The pumped water will probably be too contaminated to dump without filtration by the ALPS system. (Capacity 200 tonnes per day.)
                    This entire process will grind to a halt within a month, as the tanks are filled to capacity, and bad tests results come back.
                    Oh well, so it goes. ;)

                      We must engineer a solution. Only governments can design and implement a solution. The governments are used by the multinational corporations as enforcers for profiteers….

                      Without governments acting in the public interest, the environment comes last. There is no profit to be had to fix Fukushima. Governments will spend trillions for wars.

                      The world needs to spend a trillion to ten trillion to fix this mess. There is no source for that money.

                      We must stop the uphill water. I suggest an aqueduct to divert that water. Then it is a matter of containment from underneath. The status quo is unacceptable. No revolution will change this. Governments must get their priorities straight. Right or left doesn't really change the DNA of profit-making machines that we call corporations.

                      I would end the FED and use sovereign credit to finance to decontamination/remediation efforts – that is public banking. Print up greenbacks and quit involving ourselves in matters in foreign countries.

                      It is an all-hands-on-deck moment in history. Using Corexit is not a solution. We have destroyed the Gulf and the Pacific Ocean for energy companies. History will see Nero fiddling while Rome burned because of campaign contributions, i.e., bribery.

                      In few short years, the West Coast will see levels as high as Fukushima. These are impossible to measure but the toll will tell the tale.

                      But the point of financing is important. Instead of bitcoin, we need a usury free trading coupon…call them fukucoins in remembrance of profit motive disaster. Argentina has a barter currency going. Set the people free from financial tyranny, and who knows what kind of solutions to Fukushima they could come up with.

                    That is, it will allow them to "say" that they are cleaning the groundwater before dumping it into the one ocean.

                    RT quotes the reduction at a maximum 100 tons a day.

                    Japan starts cleaning radioactive groundwater at Fukushima before dumping into ocean
                    Published time: April 09, 2014 17:46

                    TEPCO launched a contaminated water management system at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, which will pump groundwater into tanks before it passes through the premises of the plant. After checking the water’s quality it will be dumped into the ocean.

                    The operator of the highly damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), announced Wednesday that it has started pumping upstream groundwater at the plant to a storage tank.

                    The program is expected to reduce the amount of water flowing into the building basements by a maximum of 100 tons from the current amount of around 400 tons a day to 300 tons a day, TEPCO said.

            Maybe we all need to work on an individual basis and the best we can do is be without guilt in contributing to the NWO. Time to stop using cell phones & credit cards. Time to stop buying so many things that are unnecessary for survival. Time to stop buying food from corporate stores and supporting those that build the bombs and poison our environment. It's not easy not being part of the problem but an individual's contribution to this maddening world certainly can be minimized. We should all be setting an example for young people so the individual changes we make in our own lives are spread across the generations that follow.

              Conservation is seldom talked about as a solution these days. The discussion always centers around how human beings can continue to consume and the economy can continue to grow with some new source of energy that has yet to be invented. People are complacent because they truly believe that technology will save us from our apparent demise. In California we're in the midst of a drought and the community I live in has mandatory rationing. I was amazed at how much I was able to cut back on my use of water. It's almost fun finding ways of doing so. Figuring out ways of saving gasoline, water and all other resources doesn't have to be drudgery. It feels good!

    How could leaders, doctors and scientists be so heartless? A mere 60 or 70 years ago saw incredible savagery in war crimes amongst peoples. But that continues until today and started at the dawn of history. How could the people be complicit? One might ask how the U.S. population supports the wars in the middle east and elsewhere. My point is that essential psychological aspects of our species have not changed, and why would they? This is the real question; how can humanity be this way…the way its always been and will be until the end?

    This is not to pointing the finger at the Japanese, but all societies that commit atrocities;

    "It may be pointless to try to establish which World War Two Axis aggressor, Germany or Japan, was the more brutal to the peoples it victimized. The Germans killed six million Jews and 20 million Russians; the Japanese slaughtered as many as 30 million Filipinos, Malays, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Indonesians and Burmese, at least 23 million of them ethnic Chinese. Both nations looted the countries they conquered on a monumental scale, though Japan plundered more, over a longer period, than the Nazis. Both conquerors enslaved millions and exploited them as forced laborers —and, in the case of the Japanese, as forced prostitutes for front-line troops"

      and putting nuclear in perspective, it has killed as many as the above mentioned war crimes. No one but Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now would freely admit that they are "one with the horror". For it is not only the elite, but mankind that is at fault, and one must, to be fair, trace behind mankind to the forces that created him. Lets just say, "Nature at Large" which should include, more or less, most ideologies. War, nuclear, lies, complicity and suffering continue. It spells the end for our species. So be it, this is the universe, doing its thing.

          alas, as a life long artist/musician, I dont share the belief that Hedges has in faith, hope and rebellion. Not this time. I think this sentence sums up his point in his article as well as any;

          “Ultimately, the artist and the revolutionary function as they function, and pay whatever dues they must pay behind it because they are both possessed by a vision, and they do not so much follow this vision as find themselves driven by it,”

          The one point he misses is that such verve requires a minimum of health and verve. We will be brought down simultaneously by the fascist police state and radionuclides. I have seen with my own eyes what this does to a visionary artist/ health nut mad man.

        I personally like Eric Fromm's Anatomy of Human Destructiveness, which was recommended to my by my psychopath son. I believe he says in the beginning something like "when I think of history I am a pessimist. When I think of prehistory, I am an optimist". Well prehistory is pre, an it ain't coming back.

      This is also a culture with NO TRADITION OF PUBLIC PROTEST. So whoever is ruling thinks they are Gods. Which DOES NOT make for a "noble" culture, ANY mythology aside. It just makes for a dangerous one. A place where when the privileged ones feel threatened enough, they behave like monsters and lunatics.

      They SO need to break that mold. So at least their whole genome doesn't die off without protesting in rage. (Well, ours too.)

      Where's the rage? Are they just going to fall and die because after all, that is what we do in Japan?

        There were massive public protests in the 60's, against US/Japan security pact, and there have been many very large protests since, including many large protests against nuclear power plants since the accident. Fact is, public protest in Kyoto stopped the incineration of radioactive rubble in the city.

        I don't understand the reason for recurring comments about 'Japanese culture' that are based on an apparent ignorance of even recent Japanese history, and even of events directly related to Fukushima.

          Thank you for telling me that. I was unaware. And yes, I'm greatly disturbed about lack of protest in the U.S. too! In fact, if this ever busts open here, we might just have an opposite problem of every-man-for-himself rather than constructive mass protest.

          World-wide trends seem set against us too. This is hardly the 60's!!

          J – I understand how you feel, as I am Japanese too and have struggled about that on enenews ( or are you an expat )

          I had a tiff with a poster here once who refused to stop using the word 'Jap' and he insisted 'it's just like calling someone from Thailand a Thai or a Jewish person a Jew'

          I got furious but now I have a different perspective on it.
          I am more furious about people like James Corbett and Ryan Dawson selling out to the nuclear industry. Those guys live in Japan, and probably are 'very understanding and knowledgeable' about the Japanese culture, customs and history, and take pride in that. Perhaps they even speak fluent Japanese, married Japanese women, kids are half Japanese – would never throw around the term 'Jap' in their wildest dreams… oh no, never! They are so cultured! These 2 East-West Rennaissance men!

          But they betray the Japanese people by claiming 'airborne fallout stopped completely 2.5 years ago!' ( Corbett) or ' contamination is ZERO outside Fukushima prefecture!' ( Dawson – apparently in his world particles know how to stop at prefectural demarcations) That to me is a bigger betrayal than someone calling me 'Jap' out of ignorance. It's bad, too, because on paper, it almost makes it seem like they are sticking up for the Japanese, too. 'Protecting' Japan from all the 'bashing' from outsiders who 'claim' Japan is contaminated beyond repair!

          Sorry everyone, I keep railing about this same issue but I still can't…

    The Japanese woman quoted above sounds very good-hearted, but naïve. She "fears" this and "feels" that? We have to "at least slow the pace"?

    She's hurting and she cares — that's clear. But this has been way way past such suppositional modes from the very start.

      where is the rage? Indeed, where is the global rage, for all manner of oppressions, thefts, insults to nature, health and wellbeing? One major aspect is that rage is born of a healthy hormonal system. This has been ruined to varying degrees by plastics, radiation, social inability to express rage, prolonged stress. In fact there is rage, and both the youth and the police force feel it, only one is hopelessly outgunned. Sometimes the good guys dont win

    "And we only need 1 to 5 percent of the population actively working for the overthrow of a system, history has shown, to bring down even the most ruthless totalitarian structures. It always works on two tracks—building alternative structures such as public banks to free ourselves from control and finding mechanisms to halt the machine."

    One only has to look at History and the lies and deceptions used to cover Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and now most recently WIPP…. to see that millions of people were poisoned and 100's of thousands died radiation-related deaths.

    This Japanese Holocaust is just getting started.
    The amazing thing is how long it has been allowed to run out of control.
    The World has ignored it; the Medical professions have ignored it; Science has ignored it; World Governments have covered it up; Worldwide Mass Media has relegated it to press releases from TEPCO only; and the Worldwide Environmental cadre of fanatics have never hyped the dangers and "changes" to the "climate" in ANY way on a mass scale!

    JAPANESE Secrecy Laws being jammed into place, spoke the loudest about the escalation of deaths at the site and waves of radiation poisoning traveling throughout the food chains and environment. Suppressing accurate data that could SAVE people's lives is EVIL and immoral.
    But, that's acceptable behavior to the World especially the Japanese people.

    There has been a tipping point – the point at which NPR and PBS start pulling their punches so their funding and invites to cocktail parties does not vanish. Academia is likewise bought off. As far as doctors go, most are so overworked by the corporate "practices" they are slaves to that they simply don't have the energy to raise a fuss.

    I was thinking yesterday that printing little hot pink radiation symbols on 8" x 11" sheets of paper and putting them up all over the place might be a good way to wake people up, or at least make them nervous. Of course our elected officials should have been doing this all along. They are bought off and beyond hope too.

    It took about 200 million years for life forms to get to where we are today. Horrible to think that some of these radioactive poisons have half lives measured in billions of years.

    Good luck……

    Unit 2 was running at full power when digital feedwater trouble alarms were received on all four steam generators. Workers with Southern Co. (NYSE: SO) began abnormal operating procedure for feedwater malfunction when steam generator 3 level began rapidly lowering. Workers tried to take manual control of the generator but were unable to raise the level, which caused the reactor to automatically trip.

    All backup equipment worked properly and the reactor was safely shut down. Operators are continuing to investigate the cause of the issue.

      Interesting that no one discusses the potential of many NPP's, certainly here in the US, that also installed steam generators similar to the crap they installed at San Onofre (SONGS)that proved to be illegally designed and installed, in order to increase the power output.

      I seem to recall there was a Florida NPP that was shut down for something similar, but no follow-up as to how many other NPP's had done the same thing.

      How many ticking time bombs due to this alone are out there? How might this have been the cause of what stock posted above?

      And certainly no discussion of how many US plants might also be illegally running MOX fuel.

      There is no end to the omnicidal madness of our leaders, in the pursuit of totalitarian power. Well, there is an end coming, I just hope we live long enough to see it. I for one will not shed a tear when our leaders start dropping like flies from radiation poisoning.

    When I was a small boy, I had just moved into an old house in a less than vibrant neighborhood, and was playing touch football in our backyard with cousins and siblings, when across the railroad tracks a ballast rock was hurled and hit one of my cousins in the head.

    My father, traced the trajectory and saw a group of boys down on the railroad tracks.

    He said "Hey!……Then," do you want to play football? "

    The answer was okay, and we showed the guys our secret hole in the iron fence that led to the tracks.

    We played that day and we all grew up together, playing all manner of things in and around the yard.

    THAT is a lesson in compassion and quick thinking on the part of my father that I have never, ever forgotten.

    I don't need any other advice as to how to go on with life.

    Thanks dad,

    A 5 year old next door to me has suddenly had two bouts of oxygen deprivation, brought on by a barely beating heart. In each case, he turned blue and passed out, and has no recollection of it afterward. He got out of the hospital yesterday after another series of tests, wearing a monitor to record his heart activity should it happen again. Since he doesn't remember the episodes, he wants to run and play like he used to, but parents keep reining him in, and keeping him in sight at all times. Is there a chance this could be caused by rad uptake affecting his heart?

  • THERE ARE THREE (3), count them, three nuclear fuel cores that are lose and in the ground. Somehow saying "there are grave things going on" seems to be a huge understatement. One of the cores is even a mixed fuel with predominately PLUTONIUM in the mix. Yes, I think a LOT of people are going to get sick over the next 100 years. The Government of Japan needs to IMMEDIATELY get to those cores or at least build a sarcophagus ASAP. REGARDLESS of the cost, Japan needs to act without any more haste or BS. The situation is unbelievable. The actions of those in charge is even more so.

    wxman2001…possibly, but there could be other factors as well, such as an insufficient lung heart connection that reduces blood flow, etc.

    I have first hand experience with a heart birth defect. My 2nd son was born with TAPVR.

    He came out fine, but started to breath heavily and went from pink to blue and back again.

    I remember watching him do that and thought it was my fatigued brain that was playing tricks on me, the room was a pale blue, the sky was overcast, and the lighting was dim.

    The midwife made sure that we would see a doc before going home. Problem is we had to drive a ways and didn't get seen until mid afternoon.

    Within a blink of an eye, the doc called for an ambulance and I barely managed to keep up with them in the car on the way to another hospital (an hour away). When I got there, other docs had placed him in an incubator and tests were performed.

    After a heart imaging it was determined that we needed to get to New York City asap on a turbo-prop plane.

    When we landed, I still recall the smile on the pilot's face as he saw me not be able to tell when we had touched down, he had made an approach
    as gentle as a feather settling on the ground.

    Surgery was performed and my son is almost 18 now and subsequent scans show not a trace of scarring where the vein was stitched into the back of his heart.

    I must say, this report is rather anecdotal for Arnie's standards.

    Sadly we know, the actuarial reports around FUFU will be cooked. At the very least, they will vary wildly. With the nuker's side quoting the "official" purposefully redacted numbers. These will become the casual media public's numbers.

    9/11 and the Kennedy assassination media treatment is all but guaranteed. Those who object to the official line will be marginalized as crackpot malcontents = CTers.

        Funny how many times people say I delete posts.

        I'm sure most regulars here get a kick out of that as well, considering how long it takes me to deal with the disgusting/vile/racist garbage that finds its way into the comments every so often.

        Heres some insight for HD and anyone else claiming the same thing:

        #1 If the comment is flagged by wordpress because it contains words that have been banned or it is posted from a problematic IP address, it goes into moderation >>> and never gets posted so therefore there is nothing to delete.

        #2 If a comment doesnt follow the 6 guidelines below, it could get removed. In that case it will say [REMOVED] with a warning to stop the commenter from doing whatever they did again. The goal is to give a warning, then ban if it continues. If comments were just deleted there would be no place for me to leave a warning.

        #3 Why wouldnt I just ban someone if I wanted them gone? Seems a little easier.

        #4 People honestly think I have time to read through all these comments and delete them?? Perhaps they just dont realize how much time it takes to keep a site like this online, working, and, oh yeah, updated with 'ene' news… then there's work, social life, family… maybe a shower every now. Stuff like that. So basically I only see a comment when: a) it shows up in the recent comment sidebar and I happen to glance at it. b) if it gets reported.

        Just checked it out Humpty, you have 336 comments posted. 0 deleted. Scanned through them all and got to your very first post on Dec 12, 2013 and its in moderation. Heres what it says:

        "I am new here, and I'm flumMOXed by what I have learned. Best source of info and commentary on Fuku I have seen. You guys are terrific — minds and hearts devoted to the well-being of all life. I searched for "Jim Stone" but couldn't find anything here. Has anyone studied his sabotage theory? He emphatically states there was no earthquake, only a tsunami triggered by a deep ocean blast. Are his assertions viable or is he just a crank? http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima1.html"

        anything with 'jimstone' is flag for moderation. Not only did they spam the shit out of ene, its FUCKING INSANE. Actually you're lucky you didnt get banned immediately, must have been in a forgiving mood around christmas… or maybe because you ended it "just a crank?"

    The history of selling the peaceful atom.to Japan based on the Lucky Dragon injuries from the Castle Bravo H-bomb test fallout is a very interesting aspect of selling the use of nuclear energy to a country that had been the victim of nuclear weapons.

    I remember when the launching of Sputnik freaked out Americans. The Korean War had ended by Communism was a threat that needed to be contained. Japan was like a military base for the US.

    Then came Vietnam. Meanwhile, the Japanese industrial miracle relied on nuclear energy. Today, Japan is central in the Asian Pivot.

    The Great Powers are run by financial elites who engage in one war after the other. The system is neither sustainable nor humanitarian.

    Wave after wave of propaganda issues over the corporate media. Yet, humanity faces the most dire threats today than ever before in recorded history.

    Hi VanneV: Fairly new poster here, and trying to get up to speed. I clicked your link re. the GWEN, because I had never heard of that before. There was a link at that site entitled "Japan Radiation Hysteria." Clicking that, I found a lot of articles denouncing what is talked about here on ENE. I didn't read any of the articles; just read the titles to get the gist of what they were about. Anyway, if you or someone else, can explain this "discrepancy" re. what that site is saying and what the ENEnews Site is saying, I would be very appreciative. Thanks for all the great insights so far, in my quest to find answers to this horrible ongoing disaster in Japan and beyond.

      Welcome McJillin,

      My answer to your question of discrepancy is that it is not ENENEWS that is saying anything. The aggregated articles speak for themselves. You must read those articles that you skimmed over and then the articles posted here. Read them with critical thinking and develop your own determination of how bad Fukushima is. The truth will reveal itself if you are thinking for yourself without bias…

    Thanks Jebus, ChasAha and Obewan for your replies. I guess my main concern about that "Educate-Yourself" website that VanneV was directing people to in re. to the GWEN, was that it had, also, a link entitled "Japan Radiation Hysteria." There were over two dozen links, basically, downplaying the nuclear disaster in Japan. My question is then, why would that web site (Educate-Yourself) downplay the dangers of radiation from Fukushima? Also, that web site seems to not blame the meltdowns on the earthquake and/or tsunami, but some other nefarious goings on. I, personally, think that the Japanese nuclear melt down is gravely serious, believe me, and my question is about the radiation exposure to us folks on the other side of the Pacific Ocean, I guess. I try and read as much as I can on the subject, but I was not educated in nuclear power; only know that it is very dangerous. Thanks again for your replies.

      McJillin,

      My personal observation is that nuclear power is primarily concieved for one reason. Destruction.
      The lie that is Atoms for Peace is insidious in it's deception.
      The promise for power only benefits those who wield it in any form. And that is a tenuous grip at best.
      To understand this fallacy, one must start at the beginning.
      The initial days of nuclear were concieved in a time of madness.
      The release of this madness, however justified, can never be returned to it's source. We are on a path that guarantees the destruction of this Earth and everything that is life.

      It pains me to watch this again, but it is a must see, to help point one towards the answers to the questions of nuclear power.

      It is by no means all inclusive as an answer to how this started, but it gives one an overall outline as to the gamble that we, as humanity, have decided to undertake…

      The beginning of madness for mankind.

    The next day (4/11), The Wall Street Journal published a pretty surreal feat of spin and denial, titled " “A Radiation Reality Check – From bananas to bricks, radioactivity is everywhere—but it’s nothing to be afraid of,” By CRAIG NELSON (The Wall Street Journal, April 11, 2014)"

    For some reason I ran with it and wrote a new blogpost (my attempts to quit writing about Fukushima have thus failed again…): 'Reality Check: Debunking The Wall Street Journal’s “Radiation Reality Check” ', See @:

    http://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/2014/04/12/wsj-wall-street-journal-radiation-reality-check-fukushima-chernobyl-nts-iodine-thyroid-cancer/

    Seems somewhat relevant to 'Bringing The Focus Back On Life' video…

    It truly IS a crisis that transcends geography and time. Time and space… That's actually a more profound observation than its scientific stating may implies. I've hinted at the archetypal dynamics involved in:http://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/the-darkest-dance-archetypal-dynamics-of-the-nuclear-era/ And, in that vein of deeper understanding, I highly recommend the links added under my latest painting, "Prayers for Fukushima": http://allegedlyapparent.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/new-painting-prayers-for-fukushima/
