Arnie Gundersen, Chief Engineer at Fairewinds, Dec. 16, 2013: The Japanese parliament has just passed the state secrets law. It’s really an information ‘iron curtain’ that’s preventing people in Japan from learning just how bad the exposures were that they received after the accident at Fukushima. […] They’re trying to underestimate the amount of radiation that the Japanese received […] I think they’re neglecting some really serious sources of radiation in their effort to convince the Japanese people that nuclear power is safe. […] These exposures not being calculated by the Japanese, or the IAEA, are in fact enormous. [..] Fukushima was 3 times worse than Chernobyl as far as the noble gases [e.g. xenon, krypton] that were released. […] There’s already a 10-fold increase in thyroid issues in Japan and we’re just at the beginning of the thyroid epidemic. […] As I discovered when I was in Tokyo during the book tour during 2012, all of Japan is a radiologically contaminated area, and the people in Japan need to take extraordinary precautions. The net effect of all this is the total exposure to the Japanese is being grossly underestimated. >> Watch the video here

Testimony of a Fukushima Evacuee, Oct. 30, 2013 — Miko from Iwaki City (at 7:00 in): What the state announces is different from the reality. […] As I just told you what the media says and the facts are entirely different.  […] What happened to Fukushima residents will soon affect all Japanese people […] While some say the radiation has dispersed, we are now safe people are in fact dying in Fukushima. One day a nephew of my friend died of Leukemia. The next day her husband also died. […] There are people living in Fuksuhima, now, they all say: “We’re guinea pigs after all […] many people are dying, huh? There’s nothing we can do, it’s useless, so why bother? I’d rather focus on happy things” and continue with their decontamination. […] People refuse to face the fact that these will eventually come back to haunt them. >> Watch all of Miko’s testimony here

  • Yes, we must remember, it is only a little radiation, so nothing to get alarmed about. Of course, the further away from Fukushima you are or were (say 10 miles) the safer you'd be – right?

    USS Ronald Reagan sailors report cancers after Fukushima rescue mission [Dec 16, 2013]

    "Fifty-one crew members of the USS Ronald Reagan say they are suffering from a variety of cancers as a direct result of their involvement in Operation Tomodachi, a U.S. rescue mission in Fukushima after the nuclear disaster in March 2011. The affected sailors are suing Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), alleging that the utility mishandled the crisis and did not adequately warn the crew of the risk of participating in the earthquake relief efforts."

    [...]

    "The number of plaintiffs in the case could grow significantly as 150 additional crew members are currently being medically screened to join."

        He's cautious by nature, and also likely is NOT making any money off of this. He said what got him into this in the first place, was pangs of conscience that he himself was that he was lied to about Three Mile Island and then passed those lies on to the public. He vowed to never do that again.

        No one is perfect. But we actually need MORE Arnie Gundersens.

          WNTF, I respect your statements, and Fairewindes is listed as a nonprofit organization however, Arnie is listed as "Chief Engineer" for Fairewindes so, who pays his salary? He needs your donations/contributions which is a motive for him making you believe you will only get the truth through him. I get suspicious about that. I'll admit that perhaps I'm wrong about Arnie and his motives. Just my take, and I tend to error on the side of caution. And then there's this;

            Arnie is completely anti-nuclear and has been a nuclear whistle blower since TMI. I think we need to spend our time arguing against the nuclear establishment and not those who are anti-nuclear. Busby's studies show the horrible health effects from nuclear energy and nuclear waste.

                So you want me to be skeptical of Arnia, and not skeptical of you? I have no idea who you are. And I am highly skeptical of your attack on Arnie because it is not based on fact at all. How many nuclear power plants have you succeeded in getting shut down?

                Are you arguing that all of Japan is highly contaminated with radioactivity? They have been dumping nuclear waste into the ocean around Japan for over 70 years. They have been incinerating nuclear waste all over Japan since 3/11, and maybe for 70 years.

                The number of people ill and dying because of Fukushima in Japan and around the world can't be kept hidden for long.

                Why don't you stick to the news reports? Are you questioning the need to spend trillions of US dollars on the cleanup of Fukushima? Are you questioning that trillions of dollars haven't been spent? It is so radioactive where I live that the readings went off the EPA chart for Gross Beta Count Rate, and the readings have been discontinued.

                I don't want to be breathing hot particles from Fukushima. Academics may live in an ivory tower and politicians may try to keep the truth secret, but we have to breathe in the hot particles and we are surrounded by all the radioactive cars coming out of Japan and all the radioactive food. When I find Japanese grown sweet potatoes advertised as organic in my health food store, I am extremely skeptical of anyone who attacks me.

                  anne, Your first paragraph seems fair enough. However the next four… I never said anything of the sort. Did you watch Hatrick Penry's video linked above? For Arnie to discuss "recently released FOIA documents" that are two years old well, I would expect better from someone claiming he will "keep us informed". I am not arguing against the points he makes. Simply stating that there may be some people willing to use this disaster to their benefit, for profit. As I said, I had a lot of respect for Arnie, however recently I'm a bit disappointed. This was not intended to discredit what he states regarding this disaster.

                Still, KiloCharley's skepticism is of the healthy kind and should probably not be called "skepticism" but "caution" since it'll likely cause his skepticism to be removed bit by bit.

            And for that reason, he can't be trusted.

      I still highly respect Arnie and Maggie Gundersen. They both have a real sense of integrity which is sorely lacking in this day and age. I've been following them since day one of the Fukushima disaster and they have done a great service in trying to tell the truth the best way they can. They have continually improved their website and I suspect it takes a lot of effort and money as well to do so. I truly suspect that they are not making much if anything off donations to their site. It likely all goes into keeping the site up and running. I for one am grateful for all Arnie and Maggie do. And of course I feel the same way about this site as well. Otherwise I would have no access to any real information about what is happening at Fukushima and how it is continuing to destroy the Pacific ocean and beyond.

It's a total fraud that has bilked consumers out of trillions of dollars and has left us with millions upon millions of tons of radioactive nuclear waste that is impossible to dispose of and which has made the industry profiteers filthy rich. That's also a fact. The whole damn industry is a complete fraud and the people are just now starting to wake up to that Fact.

          Impossible to be neutral when your loved ones are dying of cancer because of nuclear radiation. Being unbiased doesn't mean ignoring all the medical and scientific studies which show that radiation is killing off everyone in the world.

          Stick your head in the sand and ignore all those in Japan and in the US and elsewhere in the world who are already dying because of Chernobyl and Fukushima and all the other nuclear accidents around the world and even from the everyday emissions from everyday nuclear power plants.

              KiloCharlie, Do you really think it is "off limits" (your expression) for someone to disagree with you? For you to assume that anyone disagreeing with you is not being objective is really an ad hominem attack. You need to stick with facts and science and forget the attacks on people. I don't even know what you want to attack Arnie. If you are so into motivations, what is your motivation? There are better subjects to argue about than Arnie's motivations. His words are enough. Either you agree with them or disagree with them. Stick to the ideas. Arnie is still one of the best spokespersons we have. Who is better qualified who is speaking out.

              And I really don't understand your attack on Chris Busby. Is there a particular study that you are finding fault with?

      Kilo, the video link increased by concern about Arnie. I have noticed Arnie doesn't talk about new problems until others have put it out there enough for it to become known by those following the disaster. And then Arnie soft sells the complications, implications and negative future consequences, at least until the community has already come to a conclusion about those implications and consequences – at which time Arnie will put them out as his also.
      I do not know the reasons or if his motivations are conflicted or suspect. But, other sources have and do give info about the current events, future impacts and especially exposing lies and corruption ties to past and current events.

You were surrounded by idiots in Fukushima who believed the lies, even your relatives, but you found the courage to move by yourself to Kitakyushu with your children. But then after that, Kitakyushu allowed the burning of extremely dangerous radioactive waste to endanger you again. You have jumped from one frying pan into a second frying pan. I seriously believe your best move now would be to completely leave Japan forever. From what you said, the entire government at every single level is conspiring to lie about the dangers of the fallout. The government is going to kill several millions of people purely for short-sighted economic reasons. My God, My God – I feel so sorry for you I don't know what to do.

    The statement of the Fukushima evacuee, a mother and piano teacher, is a strong film. It must be very hard for all the family that they had to separate, the father stays behind where he works. But certainly that's safer for the children.

    Most countries try to deny or moderate bad news for their public, as in Plato's noble lie, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noble_lie. The slippery slope of government censorship and misinformation leads to a partial suppression. However, a repressive total "iron curtain" as in North Korea, or more lightly in China and Cuba, seems impossible where there's open internet, informed, technically skilled people with advanced economy as in Japan.

    Gundersen's statement at 4:20 that "all of Japan is a radiologically contaminated area" sounds exaggerated. Although waste incineration and use may spread radiation further than natural winds and water currents.

Most of us can always do more – myself especially included. But recognize that much- you are only powerless because you say it and think it.

At least the Tao has come to terms with the reality that others are apparently having trouble coming to terms with. Sadly, we'll all have to look within to understand why we've found ourselves in this predicament.

And Berkely, Ca, are the only ones I know of to acknowledge Fukushima radiation concerns. I agree with you completely the need for information is imperative. That is the point. I apologize if I made "keyboard pounding" seem worthless, we ARE the media, however I believe we can, and must do more. I urge everyone to visit the FORUM; Petitions etc. page on this site and make your voice heard! Your typing here is not sent to Senators and congress in spite of NSA rumors.

              I'm here since two+ years because i like beeing informed and especially i like you all, who comment, talk, argue and sometimes fight here in different ways in this comment section, which is like a village for me.
              Not an average village, but a village with 100% engaged people. That's what i like here :-)

              Why is Arnie Gunderson not here?

            We COULD do that, but what would be the point? I believe that these activism and awareness campaigns should be targeted toward younger demographics – they are socially mobile; have more to lose health-wise as radiation fallout effects affect younger people/those with weakened immune (on the flip-side, seniors are especially vulnerable too); if us young 'uns are pushed just the right amount, they get an Arab Spring on their hands; in other words, it's clear who the target group should be.

            Given that the opinion of youth will make or break this issue, it is important to target them in particular.

            The youth/young adult 'playground' is largely the interwebs. It makes sense to direct these information campaigns to internet users, because the chances that you will be reaching a more active group of people is higher that way.

            As a bonus, you will also be effectively targeting the following additional groups of users:
            1)Stay-at-home mothers/fathers that have that find it more convenient to follow such movements online, while watching their children (whose futures they, no doubt, will be worried about, or at least should be, by now)
            2)People of retirement age that have the time on their hands, and the concern for their grandkids, to band together against these nuclear psychos
            3) the unemployed/disabled/otherwise disaffected outcasts of society who have nothing to lose and will gladly lend their support in various anti-corporatist campaigns

    It's way bad enough if you cover up epidemics so people don't panic. But they are covering up epidemics so that the Japanese will support MORE nuclear power? And that's their own people, not some “enemy”? I don't even think that psychiatry has a term for behavior this psychopathic.

    Maybe Michael Moore should read this before he endorses nuclear energy as a solution to climate change. Off topic a bit.

    It might not matter in the long run what happens since the releases of radiation have been so large already and are ongoing for decades, even centuries.

    North America has been dosed with aerosolized particles, gases, deposition of Cesium 134/137 through atmospheric vectors, Iodine 131, xenon, krypton, strontium 90. Oceans are transporting Buckyballs.

    I am convinced that releases may have been hundreds of times larger than admitted after examining photographs, videos, thermograms, etc.

    The new security law in part is being used to prevent people picking up the pitchforks and torches and seeking justice. The other purpose is to prevent collapse of the economy.

    The radiation is coming across the Pacific and may wipe out more than Japan. The fact that they lie speaks volumes.

    Jet streams and ocean currents bring it here. This is the greatest tragedy in human history.

    It is continuing…

      They will dump it all in the ocean. Dilution is not working. Dumping into the Pacific is inevitable. There is a Pacific death plume, as we know. We must do our own readings. Our government is into this up to its eyeballs.

      The global nuclear industry is worth trillions. They want to protect their investment. They also still want to dominate the world they ruined. World financial system is collapsing. These are inter-related. If you can't threaten, then maybe the paper is worthless.

    "all of Japan is a radiologically contaminated area"
    Let me repeat this for effect:
    "all of Japan is a radiologically contaminated area"
    PM Kan and PM Abe just don't get this, so let me repeat what we have been saying on ENEnews since 3/16/2011:
    " all of Japan is a radiologically contaminated area "
    Japan is toast.
    Japan should have evacuated to China's Ghost Cities in March of 2011.
    This would have gotten the Japanese out of the Fukushima Death Zone (which extends to the Rockey Mountains, so sorry, West Coasters).
    And it would have given the Chinese renters for all their useless and pointless high rise real estate investments.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OVe2q1LepI
    Evacuating Japan to China's Ghost Cities would have avoided all this foolish hostility between a rich, and newly agressive China, and the down-and-out Japanese nuclear state.
    Japan has killed its people.
    Dead.
    The Chinese want the southern-most Japanese islands, but only to threaten Taiwan.
    Could all nations please just see what has really just happened here in Japan, and try to help the Japanese culture die a dignified death? Before you split up their little Island nation amongst yourselves?
    Thank you very much. ;)

      Gee, it's such a shame what has happened in the past concerning Nuclear Technology and what will happen in the very near future as millions will needlessly suffer with cancers and diseases because of mankind's incessant need for more and more electricity. :(

      There is currently electricity all around us and and all over the universe, the electron, and there is clean electricity and there is dirty electricity. Why did mankind/scientists/leaders choose a method for producing such dirty electricity that causes so many diseases and cancers?

      I mean no disrespect to you in the slightest, but you do realise that they are as good as dead if they move to China, right?

      You think after the brainwashing that the Chinese National Party put its people through, the Japanese can just move in and be welcomed by the Chinese with open arms?

      Talk to a Chinese national – they are good people, but even some of the more progressive members of society there suffer from a world view that is extremely biased due to decades of state propaganda.

      I can just picture every Japanese citizen having to sign some fucked up contract at Chinese customs to waive all their rights as Japanese nationals.

      No, this isn't a practical solution unfortunately. It won't work logistically, socially, or economically.

    Poor Miko-san. Such a beautiful and talented woman. She appears to be ill. I noticed the dark circles around her eyes. She appears to suffer from fatigue. It's difficult to tell if that's from stress, or perhaps from her exposure to radiation. But look closely at her eyes, which have dark circles around them. She has the appearance of someone who is not rested, or who is chronically ill. (Speaking from experience; some of my pictures from when I was very ill showed the same appearance around my eyes.)

    OK, for anyone who says everyone in Japan is just "sheeple," watching this video should disprove it. There is SO MUCH social pressure, governmental pressure, media pressure to get people to quit speaking out in Fukushima, about their circumstances. "Allies" turn out to be enemies. Petitions and complaints get shredded.

    It is despicable behavior on the part of "officials" and everyone who has tried to play down the seriousness of the post-Fukushima melt-outs, fires in the spent fuel pools, radioactive water, burning of radioactive waste, etc., etc.

    Do some of the long-time 'Newsers remember Dr. Yamashita, to whom Miko makes reference? Enenews had an article in 2011 (think it was still 2011) and a video showing a confrontation between Dr. Yamashita and some University students. Dr. Y. went to one of the Universities to try to indoctrinate the students and make everyone there believe the Fukushima plant wasn't a threat.

          Envision a 200X100 mile rectangle extending northeast from Tokyo to Fukushima, then look at the wiki map below of the contamination in 1996 in a same-size, same orientation rectangle from Ukraine-Chernobyl northeast to Belarus to Russia.

          Japan's map of contaminated hot spots must look far worse, but you have to see it with your mind's eye, because 1) the making of such a map was prohibited, and has never been seen, or 2) the nuclear fascists drew up a map to protect themselves and their own locations, but have kept it from public view.

          Now envision the millions more Japanese victims like Miko still living, unaware of the danger, in those undefined or secret hotspots, in a truly deadly Fukushima radioactive 'wrecktangle' (which is probably much larger now than 200X100 miles).

          Some day after Japan collapses and the evacuation begins the map will get made and publicized as it was for Chernobyl, but for now look below and imagine what the Japanese victims are being unknowingly and forcibly exposed to now and how much worse it soon will be:

      Quote from Miko:

      “If I make a lunch-box for my children to avoid radiation exposure, they are bullied by other classmates. Even when physical violence was involved, the school did nothing to reprimand the bullies and their parents, but instead called me in to ‘instruct’ me not to overreact to radiation.”

      I can just imagine the teachers organizing the children’s 5-minute-hate. “Who shall we hate today? I know, people who bring lunch-boxes! Hate-hate-hate!” Orwell would be proud. As the radiation spreads, such things will become commonplace throughout Japan and other irradiated zones, until societal breakdown occurs and it’s every man for himself.

    This says it all in my opinion.

    Arnie Gundersen and his wife Maggie have been brave and hard – working in this disaster. Radiation exposures have a latency period of years at lower doses. It these health effects manifested immediately, this never would have happened.

    USA Reagan sailed through two plumes. 51 crew members already have cancers. The ship is just sitting there.

    They were not given warning. This foreshadows what is going to happen to us in North America…. Silence from our government. Do they even bother to deny it? No. Ten fold increase in thyroid disease in Fukushima already. Hot particles in Seattle and Portland. Black particles 250 miles away detected in Japan.

    All of Japan is a radiological area. Hot particles and Noble gases… we need to protect our children with the truth.

    Yup, KC, hats off to Caldicott and all those who bat here. IMHO it's a lost cause. There was once a german satirical magazine with a cartoon of all these anti-war protesters carrying signs saying NEIN, and they were scurrying because a bloody big bomb with a big smile and JA! written on it was hurtling down towards them.
    That's where we are today. Much too late to turn this off, other Fukushimas will be melting down and exploding around the globe long after all life has been extinguished on this planet.
    What's happening at Fukushima now is just a macabre dance of the dead, keep the pretence going as long as possible i guess. What have we learnt in three years? What has been achieved in three years? What action has been taken by any government to protect any of its citizens in the past three years? Zero, zilch, nada.
    Pretty well the total Fukushima inventory is already in the environment, and no-one has a single idea about how to put it back in the bottle. So play a game of let's pretend something can be done, why not. Meanwhile radiation levels in the soil below the plant and the surrounding countryside keep rising, and one day soon everyone will just have to cut and run and let it burn. Phooey.

    What next?

    Would they have to:

    - Assume health care responsibility for Japanese citizens forever?

    - Risk being sued by other countries affected by radiation?

    - Pay compensation until they've used up their last yen?

    - Facilitate the evacuation of the whole country? Where to?

    - Plead guilty, accept a judicial verdict, and go to jail?

    No. The only option for them is to continue to lie and hope that by the time they can't lie anymore, the public will be so fatigued, so sick and overwhelmed that nothing will happen to the perpetrators and the deceivers. By then new leadership – not directly involved with this crime and deception – will be left to deal with the problem.

    People need to remember that to get your message to the public you need to appear credible and take a scientific and factual approach to reach the most doubters in the masses. If you do not appear reasonable then you will only be preaching to your own people.

    Arnie understands that to reach and educate people, you first need them to take you seriously. Some have criticized Arnie for not being militant enough but he knows he needs to remain objective and scientific in his approach to kept his credibility intact which is what has made him so usefully important.

    The nuclear industry and power plants in particular cloud the issue because the plants make military fuel under the cloak of being power plants. Yes, they generate energy but they were really only made to make weapons and when people forget what their real purpose was for they get lost in a myriad of distractions.

    It's always healthy to make sure the people that are championing your cause are still 100% furthering your cause lest we start following wolf's in sheep's clothing and Arnie has proven himself time and time again.

    Arnie's stance gives him access to industry people that a more flame throwing militant person may not have. Both are needed in fighting this and have different purposes.

    Always keep in mind that nuclear power was made for military purposes first and got further entrenched in society by the energy they create.

      Exerpt from the above:
      What followed was one of the most astonishing conversations I have ever participated in in my life. We had done everything asked of us by Goldner and his minions at DOE. We had submitted all the documents, made all the disclosures, cooperated with all their consultants and demonstrated that the NRT system was both viable and effective. Goldner informed us that notwithstanding all that, the Department’s policy called for the encapsulation and burial of high level radioactive nuclear waste under Yucca Mountain. No other technology, no other means of remediation, no other alternative would be permitted to impinge on the Department’s policy, under any circumstances. We were ordered forthwith to cease and desist sending any further correspondence to DOE, at any level, for any reason, under any circumstances, related to our treatment system. Further, we were informed that NRT would be denied permission to obtain samples of any radioactive materials under any circumstances, whether for further testing and evaluation or any other purposes. In short, we were told that the United States government and the agency charged with protecting the welfare of its citizens had decided to specifically prohibit the implementation of a technology that had been demonstrated to solve the problem of radioactive emissions generated by high level spent nuclear fuel wastes.

        …Everyone in the food chain who relies on DOE funding stands to be disenfranchised if someone outside the system actually figures out how to solve the problem. In this case, as in others we have tackled over the years, the problem set constitutes such a rich target for exploitation that no one who has a position at the trough really wants it resolved at all. I was genuinely astonished when it finally dawned on me that we would have been just as effective if we had painted a big red target on our foreheads and stood naked in the middle of going-home traffic on the DC beltway. Not only did we not fix the problem, we blew the cover of everyone in the private sector who had ever been involved in the process with us for more than 10 years. I guess I can take some comfort in the knowledge that I wasn’t alone in my naïveté, but it hardly gives comfort to the prospect posed by the EEU’s recent decision to build 85 new fission-based nuclear power plants over the next two decades…

      Actually, nuclear energy only provides 8% of the energy in the U.S.

      The U.S. consumes almost twice as much Renewable Energy as nuclear energy.

      For example, Wind Energy alone in the U.S. is capable of producing the energy-equivalent of approx. 60 nuclear power plants.

      And with Renewable Energy there isn't the toxic legacy of nuclear waste left for thousands of generations to worry about AND PAY FOR.

Maybe can pull a group together for a vacation here! …and eat some good food, drink some clean water, and breathe the clean air. Belize visa you can get in Tokyo, a permanent move is possible.

    It seems to me that there is a opportunity to create a web sight that begins selling off estates so people could evacuate, like a global site that could set up actions. Non believers could get things real cheep, or the scavengers could pick through the remains. People could also post information for the environmental refugees, about places to go to……about living without money.

    How many lead lined coffins will we use? I thought most Japanese prefer cremation?

    Taking in refugees means we have to know how we will (eventually) have to dispose of them.

    I have been afraid that people would be unable to leave Japan for that reason, Japanese and or others.
    There are huge caves here, imagine a death pilgrimage to a cave where one could join other cadavers from the past in the underworld. And then plant mushrooms!

    Just think of the little nasty organism that will be born of this too..

    Plenty of new diseases to paint the earth with..

    The Horseman ride and there is no where to hide!!!!!

    What will the greedy bastards do when they hold their dying children in one of their arms – while holding their money bags in the other.. Which one will they drop first???

    One thing about FUFU and many of the other horrors WE are unleashing is, they are egalitarian in nature…

      It does seem odd to me…

      70 dead in Irag yesterday – again, again and again… What does that bring the war death total to there for the last 20 years… 2,000,012??? And that's just one country the Empire has brought freedom to…

      9/11 and 3/11 are both inside jobs of a sort – when you stop and think about it… Or maybe, they are just the cost of our freedom..

        I don't think this is spreading of contamination is surprising to Arnie nor anyone else who has their eyes and mind open.. We have known and talked about it all along…

        Personally, I have given up any hope for the future for mankind…

        We are now talking in decades left – at best – before a major collapse of what we refer to as civilization…

        I think, Einstein might have been wrong about the rocks and sticks WW4… We might not be here at all – and sooner rather than later…

    Soon, the world's food supply will be jeopardized by all manner of MUTATED funguses and bacteria/viruses.

    But NO ONE will connect the dots to Fukushima or the other nuclear waste piles.

    But don't worry. Smile. Wear Pink.

    I'm newly registered although i visit often, and the comments on Arnie are what spurred me to speak. he started mentioning the foia documents because Hatrick Penry has made them more well known and Arnie is getting questions about them. Honestly there is nothing much in those documents that could not be inferred by someone paying attention. a lot of it was mainstream news when it happened. Arnie has been working against nuclear since Hatrick was in diapers and he should show some respect rather than attacking friends on the same side. it is Penry's motivations that I question, and my plea is, let's not do the infighting thing, everybody knows about divide and conquer, right?

      Welcome to Enenews, guevara3712.

      I'm not the official welcoming committee :) but I like to see people feel welcomed at Enenews.

      There was a wonderful person named StillJill who used to welcome everyone. Don't know where she is. But hello to StillJill if you're out there. And Whoopie, Blondie, theBlueLight, PavewayIII, xdrfox and other Enenews classics. Hope everyone is healthy and happy.

        @Mack: as you've been a long-time participant and in good standing with everyone out here, I'm nominating you as our official enenews welcoming committee…

        As to StillJill. I love and miss her much. Unfortunately, she disclosed that she was having issues with her family, and likely had to take her leave. Hopefully, it was a personal choice and not something that was imposed on her. She's also why I tell people to be balanced in their day-to-day interaction with those about them and what they expect of others, in response to this catastrophe…

    What the Japanese Government Isn’t Saying About Fukushima
    Dec 16, 2013 Fairewinds Energy Education

    The Japanese parliament has just passed the state secrets law. It’s really an information ‘iron curtain’ that’s preventing people in Japan from learning just how bad the exposures were that they received after the accident at Fukushima. These exposures not being calculated by the Japanese, or the International Atomic Energy Agency, are in fact enormous.

    Fukushima was 3 times worse than Chernobyl as far as the noble gases [e.g. xenon, krypton] that were released. There’s already a 10-fold increase in thyroid issues in Japan and we’re just at the beginning of the thyroid epidemic. All of Japan is a radiologically contaminated area, and the people in Japan need to take extraordinary precautions.

    The hot particle charts for Fukushima and Tokyo reflect the amount of particles captured in a filter. These patterns reflect the number of hot particles in the lungs of those exposed. Smaller particles are transported further but are more able to go into the alveolar passages because of their small size of 10 microns or less.

    Seattle has far fewer hot particles from March 2011 than Tokyo.

    The photo – sensitive paper gives us some idea of the pulmonary exposures.

    I am amazed that so few people even know about these exposures through an internal route. Decades later we will have pathologists at autopsy speaking of "Fukushima lung."

      Meanwhile, our government remains silent. Silence in the face of a known danger is complicity.

      I plan to consult with a professor of pulmonary to determine what those who were exposed to these hot particles might expect in terms of a prognosis. Fallout kills mostly by inhalation….

      If GE has defective designed the Mark I reactors, there should be a defective product lawsuit for those in the USA. Who knows? Those who profited might have to pay for the damage. What a novel idea!
