Description: Arnie Gundersen of Fairwinds Associates (a leading nuclear expert) and Warren Pollock ( ) redefine the Fukushima nuclear incidents (meltdowns and explosions) in terms of human and total cost. […]

Transcript Summary at 26:00 in

  • The Japanese can’t dump the radioactive waste in the ocean because they signed a convention that prohibits dumping at sea
  • What they’re doing to get around all of this is they are dumping from dump trucks into Tokyo Bay… not at sea
  • Using it as landfill
  • So eventually all this radioactive material is not being monitored
  • It is certainly not being retained in any kind of geologic fashion
  • But in fact is getting dumped in Tokyo Bay

Perhaps this is related to today’s report from EX-SKF: Radioactive Nori in Tokyo Bay, Dec. 22, 2011:

The Fisheries Agency publishes the result of the survey of radioactive materials (iodine, cesium only) in marine products including seaweeds. In the latest result published on December 21 for the items reported since October, radioactive cesium has been found in dried “nori” in:

Kanagawa Prefecture – 1 sample, at 11 becquerels/kg

Chiba Prefecture – 6 samples, 11, 27, 25, 16.5, 5.6, 17.7 becquerels/kg respectively […]

I’ve never seen the news of radioactive cesium detection in nori in the mainstream media at all. Without Twitter, I wouldn’t have known about it. I’m curious to know how radioactive cesium traveled from Fukushima to Tokyo Bay. The government has claimed that the Kuroshio Current would prevent the spread of radioactive materials south of Ibaraki.

Judging by the reaction to my Japanese tweet, there are many others like me who didn’t know about the detection.

      Should be winners of the Vigilante Awards. An Anonymous, working on the ground, could sabotage many of these characters who make these radiological decisions.

    Well… there is the answer to my previous questions.

      Dearest Whoopie: I want that T-Shirt!!! I’m in my last couple semesters as a returning student. I totally want to wear that T-shirt. Our campus is not political and is not ecologically aware enough. It would surely plant some radioactive seeds (figuratively) among the unconscious. 🙂 Thank you for that new avatar. I wish we could meet in person (are you California, Bay Area) as I know we’d be friends in real life. Cool! TY again. Totally punk rock.

    • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

      Dear Whoopie: It was also great to see that peer-reviewed and accepted article positing that 14,400 (at least) additional deaths occurred likely due to Fukushima, the other day.

  • maaa

    Detroit had a meltdown. That explains.

    Gundersen’s an interesting character. I appreciate the information about Japan burying high-level waste either at see, in violation of international law to which Japan is signatory. I also appreciate learning, or learning again from a credible source that Japan will probably pursue, if it hasn’t already, burying other high-level radioactive waste, spent fuel rods (did we hear him correctly) in landfills, perhaps as FILL in Tokyo Bay??? This was a very worthwhile video. I’m, on the other hand, shocked to hear him still boosting for nuclear and kissing the ass of Bill Gates by lauding or at least not honestly ripping apart Bill Gates plan for using spent fuel for “small-scale” (oy vey) nuclear power generation. Total lack of thought in his supportive statements there.

      Gates is also heavily invested in weather modification plans. If you love chemtrails, then this will no doubt make you happy! His company, Silver Lining Project, is operating privately out of San Francisco. They are somewhat secretive. It’s hard to get information on what they are doing. (At least it was when I researched this a a couple of years ago.)

      Gates is no doubt driving the whole man-made global warming craze to his advantage Why not? There’s potentially lots of money to be made, and don’t forget those global carbon taxes TPTB want to foist on us helpless, voiceless little peons!

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        Here’s an article that more or less spells out what we’re dealing with, in terms of advanced technologies and where the Ultra Wideband and nuclear capabilities are heading:

        It’s important to know who and what we’re dealing with.

        The company above is heavily involved in the use of Ultra Wideband technology. This is the new version of Remote Sensing — allowing tracking of animals and humans through walls, etc. The “electrosmog” creates the ionization of the entire surface of the earth through dumping ionically charged metallic particles (barium, aluminum oxide, etc.) that are in a sense “reflective.” This allows imaging of the entire surface of the earth and 3-D objects. It also allows advanced warfare and “anti-terrorism.”

        I don’t know about y’all, but I find the idea of these types of technology, along with passage of the Defense Authorization Act, together very daunting. Enemy belligerents (U.S. citizens doing anything the gubt deems a possible security threat, can now be legally detained, tortured, even executed w/o any Constitutional protections. It effectively can strip us of our citizenship whenever TPTB deem it desirable or necessary.

        My point is we’re not only dealing with nuclear industry puke, endless lies, deception, and cover-ups, but also a gubt run amock, greed beyond belief, and a monstrous war machine which threatens to engulf and destroy everything.

        A culture of “shut up while we put the infrastructure in place to kill you without anyone knowing” is being created. We’re being dumbed down by the onslaught of radiation, toxic chemicals, GMO’s, fluoride, pharmaceuticals, etc., etc.

        I know this is kind of a rant, but it helps if we look at the :”big picture” and that is a war machine, a military-industrial complex as Eisenhower termed it that is out of control and threatens to destroy us all.

      Interesting that Arnie Gunderson and the interviewer basically “quantified” the problem. Basically, it all comes down to the financial “bottom line.” Everything, including govt and policy decisions.

  • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

    at “sea” (of the Japanese burying their high-level waste, including high-level tonnage of contaminated water)typos

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      And US dumping of old reactorsin the sea offshore in the 1970’s, German dumping of reactor waste offshore from Portugal … and so on …. And there’s probably more about which we know nothing!

  • Bones Bones

    Don’t forget the nuclear subs with their nuclear reactors and warheads just sitting on the bottom of the ocean! hahhahaahaha Makes you “mad” sometimes. lol

  • I signed a petition many years ago, opposing the disposal of nuclear subs and their reactors at sea.

    I suggested that if the Navy generals thought this nuclear stuff was so safe, that they should dispose of the nuclear parts in the generals swimming pools. After all, the radiation should keep the germs from growing, so they would not need to use any more chlorine in their pools. Win win solution.

    Does anyone know what they do with nuclear subs and ships?

  • As Arnie Gunderson says; The Dept of Energy has been heavily subsidizing the nuclear power industry heavily, for over 70 years now. When a teen needs financial help it is ok to give it. When a 20 to 30 year old needs help, it is ok to help a little.. But when a 30 or 40 year old adult needs help, that is a different thing. Maybe they can move back for a few days, but it is not healthy to stay long. And if a person has worked at making something happen for 70 years, and still nothing is working and huge messes are being created that kill and injure millions of people, maybe it is time to give up and start putting that same money into something much safer and cleaner, like renewable energy sources. At least they do not kill large numbers of people when they blow up or go bad.

    No financial investment source will finance nuclear power without taxpayer money behind it, meaning it has to be socialized or the corporations have to continue to get corporae welfare, when they should have perfected the technology enough by now to make it self sufficient and stand on its own. The fact is that no one can aruge that this whole industry survives ONLY because they are getting corporate welfare, and for no other reason.

    In my view, the propaganda is that nuclear is cheap compared to other fuel sources, but look at Fukushima. It blew up and is going to cost a Trillion dollars.. Who can afford that, or the 20,000 year cleanup, guarding the site, covering it concrete domes every hundred years, etc? Chernobyl is eating up 20% of the local state treasury income and that does NOT include the cover expense, which has to be redone every 30 years.

    Where is the nuclear industry now? Are they going to help pay for this mess? I will bet money that they never offer to help, not even one penny.

      Don’t forget the “half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.47 billion years and that of uranium-235 is 704 million years.”

    Words Are Useless In This Disaster.

    HEADS OF JAPANESE GOVERNMENT Should Find Execution In The Face Of Criminal Charges Under Public Tribunal Alongside TEPCO Officials And Many Others.

    All Japanese Citizens Should Elect Themselves As Sovereign Citizen Constabulary And Demand Justice For All Of These Heartless Demons Which Seek Death And Destruction For All Japan And Mankind.

    Military – Police – Local Citizenry And Prefectural Government Should Should Voluntary Emancipate Themselves From National Jurisdiction And Openly Declare Sovereign Defection From The Hedonistic Murdering Mongrels And Cretins Which Occupy The Houses Of Japanese Parliament And Senate As If A Merciless Feudal Warlord Surrounded Under Blockade By Restless Citizens Fed Up With Corruption.
