Title: Arnold Gundersen with another Fukushima report as radiation levels rise in Japan

Program: If You Love This Planet

Date Aired: Nov. 11, 2011

Description: This week, Dr. Caldicott once again chats with Arnold Gundersen, a nuclear energy consultant with Fairewinds Associates, about the ongoing situation at the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan. [...]

Excerpts at ~39:00 in

  • In the US the accident is being minimized by both the regulators and govt
  • “I’m really concerned about the long-term health effects on people from Northern Japan”
  • Its a major concern to me the damage they’re doing to the children of Fukushima

  • What we have is a RAGING OUT OF CONTROL NUCLEAR FIRE, IN at least THREE and possibly SIX nuclear reactors.

    These 3-6 out of control radioactive FIRES have SPREAD OUT OF CONTAINMENT, and they are all most likely outside of the reactor vessel. (Somehow, nobody seems to want to find out where it is, or what it is doing exactly. I wonder why not?)

    Since this has never happened before, it is anyone’s guess what happens next.

    At Chernobyl, the Russian government dumped helicopter loads of boron on top of the melted reactor core. The melted fuel mixed with huge amounts of sand and boron, forming a kind of glassy substance, which melted down through several floors underneath the reactor.

    The boron and sand mixture slowed down the out of control radioactive fire and nuclear chain reaction in the melted material. As the melted mass melted its way downwards, it slowed and cooled, forming massive radioactive pools, piles and streams.
    You can watch the documentary movie at Youtube.

    At Fukushima, they are doing little or nothing to stop the out of control fire, little or nothing to dilute the radioactive material coming out of the reactor, and little or nothing to prevent the CHINA SYNDROME.

    At Chernobyl, they ordered hundreds of thousands of people to cleanup the mess, and dug a huge tunnel underneath the reactor, to fill it with refrigerated concrete, in order to prevent the melted fuel from reaching groundwater and causing a second, much larger explosion, which they estimated would KILL EVERYONE ON THE PLANET.

    At Fukushima, they are doing NOTHING by comparison, for up to SIX TIMES the melted radioactive fuel and up to 6000 tons of spent nuclear material around the plant, that could go up in a groundwater/melted fuel explosion…

    This is potentially a global life extinction event, and the government/Tepco plus the nuclear industry watchdog agencies are ‘massaging’ the news to make it look like they it under control and near shutdown.

    This is beyond…

      @AGreenRoad..I believe so…….
      Beyond.. yes …some portion of humanity has lost their sense of humanity..
      ..I suspect… they have lost their souls as well.

    AGreenRoad. Sobering assessment and REALITY. Worldwide Global Killing Fields coming straight out of Fukushima.

    New Tweet: MIT stating the radiation readings are GRIM. YIKES!

    as we are discussing long term effects…

    Aeon Stores Release Independent Food Testing Results
    November 10th, 2011 | Add a Comment

    Grocery chain Aeon has expanded their in house food testing. Aeon posted some of their results on their website with up to 5000 tests to be completed in the next 3 months. The results were in Japanese, requiring some translation. The results were somewhat expected, showing food harvested near the reactors or where the radioactive of sea dumping are thought to have concentrated as the places where contaminated food were found.

    Rice:
    Fukushima rice “Shine” Orimase 30 bq/kg cesium 137
    Fukushima rice “Koshihika” Orimase 15 bq/kg cesium 134
    Non-store brand rice from other places showed none detected
    Store brand rice from Shiga was below their detectible limits

    Produce:
    Store brand produce from Gunma and Mie was all none detected with minimum levels detected listed that were below 20 bq/kg
    Non – store brand produce from Chiba, Ibaraki, Saitama, Tochigi were all none detected

    Beef:
    Store brand beef from Miyazaki, Kagoshima, Nagano, Ibaraki all under store” non-detected” limits, all under 20 bq/kg
    Non-store brand beef from “North Sea” below limits of detection.

    Fish:
    Fish from Iwate (Ofunato) – 9.3 bq/kg (C-134) and 11 bq/kg (C-137), Fish from Miyagi (Shiogama) 11 bq/kg
    Fish from Miyagi (Ishinomaki) Had near 50 bq/kg cesium 134 & 137 in “Shinta”. They also list the location all fish were fished at.
    Other fish and locations showed none detected”
