    The physicians have reached their line-draw-in-the-sand, a ethical boundary that they will not cross. Good. They will not hide the truth any longer. Their moral obligation is to their patients only, not the government. The government has lied to the doctors and to the People. These deaths did not need to happen and were totally preventable.


    The fact that people are living in Fukushima at all is rediculous.

    She is not Japanese, is she?

    • andii

      She doesn't look a typical Japanese but she's been brain washed like the others. "Let's stick together, it will be ok if we die together." 🙁 The education starts very young. They even have to go to the toilet toether :O

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

        She sounds like a whistle blower to me. I don't think you can be smarter than that. If only more people would speak out and tell the world the truth.

      • Fudo

        What on earth are you talking about? The "education" doesn't start very young. Japanese children don't have to go to the toilet together.
        All these comments that make Japanese people sound like mindless robots and the walking dead are way over the top. The whole country isn't going to fall over dead and neither is the rest of the world. Fukushima is a very bad disaster. The amount of radiation released in America during the above ground testing was massive but the entire country didn't drop dead. So was the amount released during Chernobyl. Some of the people commenting here seem to have no sense of perspective verging on outright paranoia. This is a huge crisis, but it's important to have a clear thought process also. Fear or denial are both bad tools for rational decision making.
        Just so people understand better, not everyone has the means to pick up and leave when a crisis hits. That's why so many poor people got stuck during Katrina. The same is true for many Japanese people. They aren't staying in Iwate or Fukushima City because they're brainwashed. Some people simply have no choice unless the government declares an evacuation zone and pays for their relocation. The same thing would be true if this happened in America or anywhere else. The amount of people anywhere in the world who don't comprehend the gravity of a situation, or simply couldn't afford to do anything about it is the same everywhere, so please stop making derogatory cultural…

        • snowwy snowwy

          I have to agree with you there Fudo. typical looks… I was wondering what andii was going on about as the young lady in the video is blurred.

          A lot of people feel unable to uproot and just evacuate with a small bag as luggage knowing that they will never return, hence the fact that in situations like this the military makes sure that people will do as they are told (see Chernobyl). I hear there are plenty of people who would love to evacuate but are actively hindered to do so. This and the misinformation (lack of) issued by the state in order to prevent "mass panic" and the sense of duty that a lot of people feel towards their families, communities, vocation etc will effect the decision whether to evacuate or not greatly.

          Especially seen in people who work for health care and or humanitarian causes. Very often I ask myself why they continue despite the huge risk of danger to their on lives.

          The answer is that some people feel responsibility and duty towards others more than other people and more than what most governments show towards their population.

          Lets not fall into the trap to judge people from afar and their motivation to remain. Besides Fukushima is already to some extend a global event and still has the potential to become an even more serious global event. Where would you run to if it hits everyone? After all the globe is only so big and then?

        • andii

          Fudo san,
          They don't HAVE TO but the school girls do go to toilet together. It's a fact.

          • snowwy snowwy

            they do that over here too … what does that prove?

          • andii

            PS to Fudo san,
            If you are on Twitter, ask @junna311
            She's awake and see through exactly what is going on in Japan right now. She's been helping people to leave the country by giving them practical pros and cons of living abroad etc and I'm sure quite a few people made a wise choice to leave the country because of her. You can communicate with her in English. and Please do ask her about girls going to the toilet t-o-g-e-t-h-e-r lol

    • You'd think she'd be smart with all those degrees !

      • cossack55

        All those degrees just means she is well "educated", not necessarily smart. I wonder what her student debt load is?

  • patb2009

    Its not impossible to evacuate Tokyo, they just need boats, Big F&8king Boats.

    • StPaulScout StPaulScout

      Based on articles I've read on ENENEWS, by March 2015 the entirety of Japan will be uninhabitable as the dose rate will hit 5msv (or whatever it was). Where does one suppose 128,000,000 people be moved to? Infrastructure being static for the short term, what city, state, region, country could handle such a large influx of people? How would you house them? Feed them? Provide medical and dental care? Schooling? Don't get me wrong, I would open my home to a Japanese familly in a heart beat. But I'm not so sure most would choose to leave anyhow. But the question remains, evacuate them to where?


        @StPaulScout: as important as your question is, what of the medical consequences for having delayed their evacuation?! The cost to any prospective nation that would harbor these people is potentially without limit. When governments begin to consider this issue, the doors will be only be opened to the finite group of emigrates. This possibility is but one more failure of TEPGOV…

        • jec jec

          What is worse, now the Japanese or citizens who want to evacuate–are probably radioactive themselves. Wonder if THAT was the plan all along. Highly radiated citizens can not be evacuated to foreign countries without jeapordizing the foreign population. Not sure of all the legal ramifications or immigration rules either –but its an issue. Of course it depends on the level of contamination, but if a victim is shedding cesium in body fluids or solids –and it goes into septic/sewage..its contaminating some other innocent people.

          Sad SAD..they have a terrible situation and the choices are getting smaller and smaller. With high radiation levels, the medical requirements for future care is also an issue, assuming they do not have exposure at a terminal illness level. Pray for them..

          • Sharp2197 Sharp2197

            Residents who now want to evacuate after a year of exposures will need to leave everything behind. And they would bring huge future medical costs with them.


            @jec: though it's becoming evident that the people of Japan are now the walking-dead, I doubt any government would exclude them on the basis that they may represent a radioactive threat to the environment. As things are going now, we're all likely to find ourselves floating on inner-tubes at sea…

          • rooks rooks

            I enjoy your posts Jec but this one is not scientific.

          • RichardPerry

            Maybe countries that sell and promote muclear power and convinced the world that a melt down would never happen should take in the people of Japan and many sick ones. It would be the right thing to do.

      • SnorkY2K

        I suspect that 40 million in Tokyo, Chiba and norther would be beyond contamination levels that other countries would expect. Okinawa and the northern islands may be able to take another 40 million with major construction projects and lifestyle adaption. So probably only 48 million would need to evacuate and a large number of them could be at levels shunned by other countries without going to an intermediate area to loose some radioactivity.

Are these some sort of alignment or targeting grids for space weapons or what? In one of the photos, you can clearly see a grid of structures with three of them either destroyed or partially standing as if they were for target practice. The strangest one is the intersecting grids lines; the structure covers 18 miles of space.

      • throwing_stones

        China. They have several ghost cities waiting for a population. Kind of makes you wonder.

        Enjoy what used to be the miracle of life, as we know it on earth, while you still can. Soon it will begin to change. It will not be for the better. If SFP4 goes it may be a rapid change.

        There are probably worse things going on at Fukushima that we may never know. TEPCO may have killed this world if they cannot get some of this situation under control. Twelve other NPP's are experiencing there own possible catastrophes. At least by preFukushima standards. What happens if they go?

        Humanity as a whole should have known better. Its too bad for everything else though. And our children. They did not deserve this.

    • snowwy snowwy

      boats, money, military, more money, more military and a place to go to…..

      where would they go to? I think at this minute it is all about the preservation of a country called Japan, its future is very limited. no head of state could risk that the state dissolves and order a diaspora of the people on country wide scale.

  • glowfus

    radiation induced pathology has been know since thomas edisons assistant was ridiculosly injured experimenting with it. in fact, teams of researchers went right in after hiroshima/nagasaki to study. one of the simplest ways of preventing radiation injuries is to find out where 180 tons of spewing uranium melted cores are.

  • HoTaters HoTaters

    Finally, the truth. How sad for the people living there. I hope this news somehow gets to the local people so that they understand they are, collectively, suffering from the radiation. It's easy to minimize or deny the full impact (one doesn't want to grasp the full impact because it's too terrible to contemplate).

    I agree with Steve MT perhaps the physicians have reached the point where they are drawing the ethical line in the sand. I hope so!

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      The really sickening part is the prefectural government is still talking about resettling people there. THAT is criminal!

          Yes..just like that..for money..for politics save face..
          the Japanese government is willingfully allowing the citizens of Japan to be exposed to high radiation.
          This "beyond" those that read and post here….because we are rational.
          More than rational..
          Those with the drive to tell the truth here..represent some of the finer virtues of humanity,empathy …concern..and the willingness to try and do something about it.
          Absolutely unthinkable…Indeed.

        • snowwy snowwy

          It is unthinkable if you look at it from a humanitarian point of view. then again it is unthinkable that governments would starve large parts of their population to death by removing food or it is unthinkable to exterminate large parts of the population with gas or it is unthinkable to allow industries to release huge amounts of toxins killing everything within a certain radius condemning them to a slow and painful death. it is also unthinkable that weapons are built and used as threat in military or political conflict that have the potential to wipe out the population globally on a big scale or to allow nuclear waste to be placed where it can and probably will contaminate the ground water of a whole country….

          … unthinkable but already happened. Governments are cruel masters with the power to do all this as history has already shown.

          Rationally, we would now overthrow every government of this planet and take matters in our own hands … just one set back, we have not got the power to do so.

      The problem is visa. People can only stay for a short time e.g. 6 months tourist's visa
      They are looking for a long term option e.g. permanent or working visa but finding it very difficult to obtain it. There is of course the language difficulties as well.

        Dear Andii:

        Thank you very much for the update explaining why it might be difficult to encourage Japanese citizens to come stay with those of us who care here in the U.S. What you said makes a lot of sense, and of course, there are no accidents in policy, which is always from the top down, in this sort of situation. Thank you very much again. I know or believe that it may also be difficult to get long-term ecological refugee status under other guises in much of wealthier Western Europe, as well where there are also many good people who want to help.

        • andii

          Hi Pallas89juno
          Japanese people do know that there are help out there from overseas and really appreciate the kindness they have been offered. The situation is like this, they've been shown food that they need but it's on the other side of the window 🙁 It's very frustrating. But some of us who have fled the country long ago realise that the brain washed situation they are in and encourage them to just jump which we did years ago with very little money in our pockets. But the sense of false safty created in the country is too comforting even with the high level of radiation.

    • retali8 retali8

      Seems alot of people here has no clue about Japanese,
      For starters the majority of Japanese can't even speak English, and the one that's do, aren't as fluent as other "Asian" nationalities like Korea and Chinese for example, they tend to speak alot more fluent English.
      And as for the reaching out and supporting role, it's like a human microwave, I had a Japanese girl from Tokyo staying with me for about a week, she knew clearly about what was going on but w
      She like many just said "we need to understand the Japanese culture", we love our land, alot of Japanese won't settle outside of Japan, Japan is home to them, and there attitude is like they can't help it so nothing can be done, like the smile as everything will be fine approach!
      I can see alot of confusion and frustration amongst The Japanese, something they are definetly not known for, definetly a side affect from radiation …

    The Message of Fukushima Unit Three

    • Arizonan Arizonan

      @ TerraHertz…. I agree. The photos seem to support the theory that SFP3 underwent one or more prompt criticalities, not the reactor core itself.

    • Tumrgrwer Tumrgrwer

      Thank you for your understanding of the events surounding the explosion at unit 3. If you look very close you will see that the entire roof structrure was moverd to the right by the blasts. It did not fall straight down. The roof girders are destroyed over the reactor but fell sidways after the it's structural integrity was blown away. Look just to the right of the circled reactor. Why are these roof girders mangled. There was nothing under them to cause this type of damage. Anyway, I see no reactor or intact Spent Fuel Pool. I do like your firecraker asumption, it to could be correct. But the reactor is missing, no where to be found, but the few pieces scattered around the panet.

    • dharmasyd dharmasyd

      Terra Hertz…Thanks for posting this here. I totally agree that humans do not, at this point, have the capacity to handle nuclear power responsibily. The evolution on consciousness was mandated with the splitting of the atom. It does not appear, however, that we humans are making the required adaptation. We are destroying the gene pool; I don't think anyone knows when the threshold of irreversibility will be crossed.

      Therefore we must stop putting radionuclides into the environmnet now. And we must stop risking putting radionuclides into the the environment now.

      I'm not a scientist, so I can't really evaluate your ideas on the SFP other than to say it sounds very reasonable.

      Thanks for your contribution.

    • Jebus Jebus

      Um, I hate to be the one, again, but I still have to side with dosdos on this one. The reactor blew the building up, not the pool.

      The circle for the reactor in Terra Hertz's pic is not even in the right place as compared with this pic that is correct for the reactor location.

      By Tepcos own pics of the spent fuel pool, the explosion that tore that building up could not have originated from the spent fuel pool. There would be nothing left of the pool.

      You have seen the #3 SFP, was it blown to shit?

      Have you ever seen a close up pic of #3 reactor containment yet!

      Do you wonder why?

      Think people! Do not get led astray by those who wish that it was not the reactor itself.

      Look at the explosion of #3 reactor. !!!

        According to Wikipedia timeline, there were 2 explosions at Unit 3.


        Monday, 14 March
        • 11:01: The unit 3 reactor building explodes,

        Tuesday, 15 March
        • 11:00: A second explosion of reactor 3 (according to The World Meteorological Organization )

        I have never seen any discussion on the second one, and it is not on video.

        But if true, it lends support that both reactor and pool are gone, and we are breathing them.

        • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

          WArning never heeded:
          Warnings and design critique
          “In 1990 the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) ranked the failure of the emergency electricity generators and subsequent failure of the cooling systems of plants in seismically very active regions one of the most likely risks. The Japanese Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) cited this report in 2004. According to Jun Tateno, a former NISA scientist, TEPCO did not react to these warnings and did not respond with any measures.[34]
          “Film maker Adam Curtis mentioned the risks of the type of boiling water reactors cooling systems such as those in Fukushima I,[35] and claimed the risks were known since 1971[36] in a series of documentaries in the BBC in 1992 and advised that PWR type reactors should have been used.
          Incidents and accidents
          • “In 1978, fuel rods fell in reactor No. 3, causing a nuclear reaction.[37] It took about seven and a half hours to place the rods back into proper positions[38].
          • “On February 25, 2009 a manual shutdown was initiated during the middle of a startup operation. The cause was a high pressure alarm that was caused by the shutting of a turbine bypass valve. The reactor was at 12% of full power when the alarm occurred at 4:03 am due to a pressure increase to 1,029.8 psi (7,100 kPa), exceeding the regulatory limit of 1,002.2 psi (6,910 kPa)

          • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

            The reactor was reduced to 0% power, which exceeded the 5% threshold that requires event reporting, and pressure dropped back under the regulatory limit at 4:25 am. Later, at 8:49 am the control blades were completely inserted, constituting a manual reactor shutdown. An inspection then confirmed that one of the 8 bypass valves had closed and that the valve had a bad driving fluid connection. The reactor had been starting up following its 25th regular inspection which began on October 18, 2008.[39]
            • “On March 26, 2009 unit 3 had problems with over-insertion of control blades during outage. Repair work was being done on equipment that regulates the driving pressure for the control blades, and when a valve was opened at 2:23 pm a control blade drift alarm went off. On later inspection it was found that several of the rods had been unintentionally inserted.[40]
            • “On November 2, 2010 unit 5 had an automatic SCRAM while an operator was conducting an adjustment to the control blade insertion pattern. The SCRAM was caused by a reactor low water level alarm. The turbine tripped along with the reactor and there was no radiation injury to workers.[41]…”

            And the IAEA approved MOX fuel at Fukushima Daiichi? The IAEA should be tried for crimes against humanity and disbanded immediately.

      • flownthecoop

        One of the most logical theories I have heard about the explosions comes from Arto Lauri, Finnish ex-nuke employee turned activist. He also explains why Germany immediately shut down some of their reactors that are similar to Fukushima's. and his theory would allow for the fuku's reactors to still be intact and the fuel pools etc. He is on facebook also.

    Most Japanese will stay and die in Honshu. There will be voluntary emigration (probably 300,00 have fled the main island already. That's a good observation about the point in time when internal contamination makes Japanese emigrants persona non grata. That time is possibly already occurred for many millions within 100 miles of the epicenter.

  • Attention Academic Enenews Readers

    I am very concerned about a possible "plant" at Environmental Health Perspectives, one of the leading environmental health journals.

    The study purports to demonstrate that gamma radiation at 400X background has no health effects on mice. The study generalizes the findings to humans, but suffers from problems of ecological validity.

    If you have background in research, I would be grateful if you would take a look at my analysis and let me know whether you think the study is a plant.

    If my analysis is correct then we are seeing a concerted propaganda campaign that will bend science to trivialize effects.

    I know that science has been manipulated for decades but this would be a particularly gross example.

    • Bobby1


      Here is a DOE-funded study that explicitly endorses hormesis, or that radiation is good for you:

      I have no doubt that there is a concerted campaign to spread disinformation about Fukushima, but disinfo about radiation health effects has actually been going on for a long time. It's worse now.

      • Thanks Bobby1

        I know that the disinformation has been going on a long time.

        What really bothers me is that a leading environmental journal would be hijacked.

        I cannot believe that the external reviewers did not question the study's extrapolations of significance.

        The placement of the article bothers me the most.

        • getoutwhileyoustillcan

    If the Japanese want to stay, in order to die together, in their land, then this will happen. They all have fatal interior doses, and were they to evacuate at this point, their lives will last only a few months for some, only a few years for others. Our hearts are broken by their plight.

    If 52% of those living in the US will get cancer in their lifetimes, pre-Fuku, expect this to go up to 82% post-Fuku, since the Federal Government and MSM are doing just about nothing to lower the internal radiation dose through Pacific seafood, and west coast produce. we will follow the Japanese into the nuclear black night.

    The girl in the video is definitely not ethnically Japanese. Facial shape and proportions are wrong. And her accent is not typical of one who was educated in Japan. Pretty convincing attempt, but the mistakes are obvious to a linguist. I'm guessing Eastern European with a good ear.

    That said, just about EVERY claim she made about Fukushima is patently FALSE. Anyone who has been there since 3/11 can attest to it.

    By the way, I hope everyone noticed that she was reading from a script in her lap.

    This is just more slick propaganda. Dang, those anti-nuke guys are getting good at this.
