Fukushima Voice, May 28, 2014: Mako Oshidori in Düsseldorf “The Hidden Truth about Fukushima” [...] The lecture, given in Japanese [on March 8, 2014] and translated into English.

  • Moderator: My name is Mariko. Welcome to a lecture by Mako Oshidori. [...] A huge earthquake, followed by tsunami and the nuclear accident, has become an unprecedented disaster for the Japanese as well as the rest of the world. Moreover, this accident is not only out of control but continues to be in critical state. [...]
  • Mako Oshidori: I am actually a journalist with the highest attendance rate at the TEPCO press conference. [...] in 2013 when the Japanese central government decided to begin to restart nuclear power plants, the government placed a watch on me [...] a piece of paper was distributed with a list of names [...] such as the former prime minister Naoto Kan [...] A researcher who was given the list and told not to approach anybody on it was friendly with me and told me the list included my name. Soon after that a mysterious man began to follow me. [...]

Deformed ‘Stack’ Near Units 1 & 2

  • Oshidori: I would like to talk about the current status of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. This is a chimney called a “stack” [...] one of the places that I consider the most dangerous. It is 120 m tall. In December 2013, it was discovered the highest radiation level, 25 Sv/h, at the bottom of the stack. [...] humans cannot go near it. The problem gets worse. TEPCO discovered deformities on 4 sides at 60 of the 120 meter height [...] Some are totally severed. Ordinarily, this should be immediately repaired, but the bottom of the stack is 25 Sv/h [...] they can’t do anything about it. What TEPCO is doing about this is they have appointed workers to constantly watch it. [...] Workers on site are very worried about whether it would fall onto the reactor buildings. If it ever fell on Unit 1 or 2, all the workers would have to evacuate [...] and it could lead to a severe accident necessitating evacuation [...]

      Yet a penny pinching corporation is still in charge and still trying to save money to boost corporate profits – when the loss of the entire Pacific is in the balance. And to top off this lunacy – to save money, there have been no precautions taken for the next earthquake and tsunami that will wash everything away. After that, the Leaning Tower of TEPCO will not seem so important.

        Smart thinking Charlie3. I mean seriously that really is a bright Idea. Somebody forward this message back to the source. TEPCO really needs to get a freaking clue. You have to wonder how constant high exposure to radiation on the Fuku site effects the brains and thinking processes of the people who are working there. I'm sure the weight of the situation, fear and stress does have an effect on squelching creative thinking in those who might otherwise figure out better ways of dealing with some of this stuff…

        I'm not the first who has said this but I'll say it again; the brightestest minds from around the world need to convene and work together to problem solve and work out an advanced stategies of how to deal with these issues. No ideas should be left off the drawing board. Anything and everything that anyone can come up with should be seriously looked at and considered. After all as we all know here, this is a global situation.

          Glass is a viable option at a great deal of difficulty, it would help keep the corium from water exposure. The glob cooled sufficiently to handle them would indeed be very large and massive. Corium would perhaps have a certain degree of gas pressure, creating possible bubbles inside. The cold of 6 miles down would keep them for the most part solid. Debatable as to the wisdom of doing so, but then again, so was building reactors in the first place. We gotta pay to play such an elaborate game of marbles…

        And – though I'm just stating my layman observation – I like the 'wrap around and support' idea instead of the 'lasso and pull' – because even if they made the vent stack collapse towards the area without the reactors… destroying the stack would expose the site to more radiation and make it even less workable, no?

        Btw I wonder if graphene could create some new type of anti radiation suit ?
        It could definitely create some self powered light winter jacket using solar energy :)

    It does appear that something has changed in the Tepcam 2 image, I thought the reactor building was shifting but maybe its stack. Or maybe its the stack And the building, as a meter wide crack and gap in the Reactor One building was previously identified (I think by Mako Oshidori).

    Anymore I don't know how much it matters, if it Did fall, they would be doing the same nothing they are doing now, just trying to appear busy to console the japanese people while sucking most of the recovery money into yakuza bank accounts… but even less and even slower. Then they would need more money of course.

    I don't really think anything will ever be done about fukushima, it will continue to get worse and worse, and then eventually there will be another Nuclear disaster, if not at fuku then somewhere else. But the world at large has been sold on the nuclear industry's lies, no worries, everything is okay, its only a problem for them over there, not us over here. We are fine.
    I have a feeling Fuku wont be the last, just the first, unless you count chernobyl or the various unreported mishaps.

    HAZARDS OF LOW LEVEL RADIOACTIVITY
    by Sara Shannon
    Winter, 1998
    Low level radioactivity includes the on going amount of radiation released from the
    everyday operation of the
    world's 433 nuclear power plants, plus leaks and accidents.
    (1)
    INFERTILITY
    Radiation causes infertility. The global fertility rate has dropped nearly half since 1955.
    (2)
    WEAKENED
    IMMUNE SYSTEM
    Radiation weakens the immune system. A hundred nation study on quality of health found the
    United States was number one in 1943. By 1992, the United States was number 100, according to a
    U.S. Public Health Statistics Report. Globally health is deteriorating with incidence of cancer,
    heart, allergies and infectious diseases increasing.
    (3)
    MUTATED VIRUS
    AND BACTERIA
    Even at low levels radiation may increase mutations of bacteria and virus. Mutations are causing the appearance of new diseases such as Reyes Syndrome, Legionnaire's Disease and Lyme Disease.
    (4)
    LOSS OF OXYGEN
    GLOBALLY
    The percentage of oxygen in the air is down to about 19 percent. The expected amount is 21
    percent of oxygen. Oxygen is formed by trees and plankton. Trees and plankton are killed by
    radiation.

      Argo suggests this nightmare is selective in its outcome; that someone's behind the scenes controlling things. Really?

      What if it was simply a matter of yes-men accruing to positions of unquestioned influence and power? What if they had zero ability to change anything in your world? What if it was a matter of getting you to think they were in control? What if these men of influence were discovered to be completely incapable of doing anything to change what's obviously out of the hands? What if the world woke-up tomorrow morning and discovered an abandoned control room? What would we do if we simply discovered there were no wizards behind the curtain or beyond-black plots in play; that the cage doors were now unlocked; that we are now free to determine our own destiny?

          only agenda left to them, Argo, is perpetrating the myth of control. In the face of obvious impotency, they're only left with convincing you, they're still calling the shots. Those at the top of this squirming mass of incompetents have simply receded into the darkness.

          They're good at murdering millions.

          But in the face of that which churns upon the East, their influence is somehow missing! Had they any answer, regardless its cost, it would've been attempted. They have but to issue us the bill and they would've pressed forward. Like actors frantically dressing for the next act, they know not their lines nor places upon the stage. Yet the unwitting audience greedily anticipates some great plot to reveal itself from behind the closed curtains.

          Put all the speculation aside. They're finished…along with the rest of the human species. Their legacy is one of decrepitude. And for all their brilliant machinations, only earned endless horrors upon their progeny.

            AFTERSHOCK, you may be right. The global power structure is definitely imploding. Like children, those in power are running away from their WMD's also known as dangerous sand castles.

            They forgot the tide is coming in, and now the rest of humanity is left inside the collapsing sand castles.

            We need to keep trying to find solutions, though. I'm not convinced yet all is lost, until there just isn't any air to breathe, the Pacific Ocean web of life has collapsed, etc.

            We're not there yet. I don't like the direction I see things are going. I'm not sure what it's going to take, to turn the tide of this destruction. But surely someone, or someones, can step into the void the child actors have left, and show real leadership, be accountable, instigate change.

            I see mention of antidotes… ? What if Fukushima is the elitists wet dream soft-kill depopulation fantasy come true? They figure to just let it go for ten or fifteen years before they finally come out with the solution. By that time, enough radioactive particles will have issued forth to increase the cancer rate by at least 50% throughout the world population; especially amongst the biggest fish eaters – wink wink. And then they don't have to take responsibility for doing it outright, by simply allowing it to happen.

            All the while, they have knowledge of all the advanced cancer cures but keep that technology only for themselves while hiding it from the public view and keeping the medical establishment towing the line; denying and discrediting all things alternative and natural. I see how it is. Perhaps the vegans will have a better chance at survival because they're the bottom of the food chain. But apparently thats how the elitists want it. Apparently they think that meat eaters are more aggressive and hence, less willing to submit.

            The name of the game is detox. We all have to wake the heck up and get active and involved before its too late. Eat clean, purify your air and water. Avoid things that exacerbate health problems like drugs and alcohol. Shore up on your health knowledge and in the mean time, we all need to really start hammering our elected representatives. Writing petitions to the United Nations, anything and everything. Indeed.

              D. Nudibranch exactly what I was thinking when I stumbled across the Antidotes–

              We clearly see an effect on Sea Life due to Fukushima, we see an effect on Japanese Citizens we will most probably see an effect on the Oxygen Level, the Ozone Level, various diseases due to mutation of the different Viruses and higher cancer rates on the northern hemisphere within the next 5-10 years.

              I read a lot these past weeks, one thing I wonder. I dont recall that anybody I know wanted to have cancer so in this I also dont recall anybody wanting to be exposed to radiation – I dont recall anybody telling that they wanted to have any wars. So with this I wonder why this all is going on while nobody really wanted that…Could we make an online count of all people in the world (like seriously) making something like a vote (with serious registration) if they had wanted in the past nuclear bombs testings, if they wanted to have nuclear power plants, if they wanted to have wars, if they want to have a world government, if they want GMOs, if they wanted mercury in their vaccinations and all the other terrible things?

              I believe its seriously to late for us. Only if we get a real representation of the peoples voice then we could do something about all of this. Only then we could get those Psychopaths in front of a new court (non UN) to have the charged with serious crimes against humanity.

              I however am not very technical. But I want to put this out there and see what it would take do…

        A more meaningful measurement would be between 1940 and 1913. And even since Feb. 2011 to the present. With all the death of the plankton in the Pacific and the huge measurable enlargement of the ozone holes above both poles, and all the increase of methane from melting due to global warming and from nuclear power plants and Fukushima, any measurement between 1989 (post-Chernobyl) and 1994 says very little about the problem.

          From this citation, written back in 1998:
          “Walter Russell, a visionary artist and scientist, predicted in his book Atomic Suicide? published in 1957 that due to man-made radioactivity we would experience a loss of oxygen in the air that we breathe. In a similar way to the predictions of Andrei Sakharov in the 1950's, Walter Russell's foresight is now coming true. Our current oxygen resources are low. The percentage of oxygen in the air is down to about 19 percent. (BioTech News 1997) The expected amount is 21 percent oxygen. Some experts say that we may have originally evolved in an atmosphere of 38 percent oxygen. But now, due to the loss of forests and ocean plankton, our two sources of oxygen production, measurements of oxygen as low as 12 percent and 15 percent have been made in heavily industrialized areas. This oxygen-depleted condition is a contributing cause of the generalized lack of well-being that many are experiencing. And it does not look good for the future. We need oxygen to live!
          “Trees and green plants provide about half, and plankton provide the other half of our oxygen. Phytoplankton, which are the base of the marine food chain, is declining…”

            Hi Anne, I read studies from around 1987 (or so) discussing the diminished phytoplankton blooms, and an hypothesis stating damage to the earth's ozone layer might be the cause.

            It might have been a UC Berkeley study, or one out of the University of Washington.

            If I can find it, I'll post a link here and at the Forum re: energy and non-nuclear issues.

            Also I want to add something..its interesting that the 02 Level caught a lot of attention but the other things from Sara didn't as much…(seems to be the only point that is challenged)

            I will make more research about this but it is very clear that background radiation was caused by the 2055 nuclear explosions from 1945 (incl. North Korea)
            One would think, that a nuclear bomb doesn't need to be tested more than once as it is always the same result.

            So…whats really going on???

            I guess well never find out, and if so… then we will accused as conspiracy crazies …while our world gets more and more radiated by man-made radiation…some Scientists out there should create a new wikileaks or so…maybe we could get help from Legion on this? Many people are in the know…why is nobody speaking up, the Truth it is…??? It would be a wonderful time…NOW…

            “Global warming is not the only consequence of increasing greenhouse gasses from natural and anthropomorphic sources. Oxygen used to be about 20% of the atmosphere; but today, in places like Tokyo, it is as low as 7%. Carbon dioxide is actually a fairly heavy gas (molecular weight 44 as compared to oxygen 32 and nitrogen 28) so that during times of little wind, it would have a tendency to settle in pockets.
            Compromised levels of oxygen have a wide range of health and vitality consequences ranging from headaches and dizziness to an increased susceptibility to cancer and even death among those whose systems are already weak from other causes. This is true in the oceans as well, which are seeing an increase in hypoxic (oxygen deficient) dead zones in extreme cases.

            "’Dead zones (hypoxic i.e. oxygen deficient water) in the coastal zones are increasing, typically surrounding major industrial and agricultural centers. This is commonly occurring due to nutrient pollution, in the form of nitrogen and phosphorous leading to algal blooms and eutrophication.’ (UNEP/GRID; 2004)

              Please take a broad look at this issue. If we burned every fossil fuel in the whole world, including all underground, and all the trees and plants, we could drop the O2 from 21% to 19%.

                  At 7% people would be dying in vast numbers from lack of oxygen, that is the level of life support, 7%.

                  A worldwide drop, or even localized, drop in the o@ in air would not have escaped my radar. It would have a lot of effects, just like trying to start a campfire at altitude…its harder. Getting winded more easily, etc.

                      There is no oxygen crisis in air, there are plenty of real crisis, plenty of real "conspiracies"

                      Oxygen levels are decreasing globally due to fossil-fuel burning. The changes are too small to have an impact on human health, but are of interest to the study of climate change and carbon dioxide. These plots show the atmospheric O2 concentration relative to the level around 1985. The observed downward trend amounts to 19 'per meg' per year. This corresponds to losing 19 O2 molecules out of every 1 million O2 molecules in the atmosphere each year.

                      I have searched for recent statistics, i.e. since 2011, on oxygen levels and have been unable to find any.

                      personally, i think that is reasonable to expect that in densely populated urban areas without adequate greenbelt zones, oxygen levels would be lower; these would also be lower in heavily polluted atmospheres.

                      Here is a reasonably easy test to determine oxygen percentage in your local environment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQNl2EdteDE

                      There are likely many things contributing to the resultant reading which may be very localized. For instance, though I do not live in a rainforest, with the number of trees in my vicinity, I would expect the percentage of oxygen to be higher than in a more intensely populated area. Likewise I would expect a marked difference between my reading and that of a highly industrialized area. However, my neighbor's property may even have a different level to mine, depending on our individual residence's ventilation. Higher altitudes are another factor influencing the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere.

                      There are also hovering dangers from the increase of toxic gases.

                      Perhaps a system, like neighborhood watch, could evolve to test your local area's atmosphere.

                    And the presence of actual less oxygen atoms in an area means more more of some thing else. Either toxic or inert or asphyxiate….usually gas release in a confined space or near a huge chemical release or in a depression if the gas is heavier than air….. Normal air everywhere is twenty one percent. The amt available to us depends on air pressure. I have done permit required confined space entry work…see radios article earlier on confined space and humidity and available oxygen and human reactions…..

We have clear cut most of the forests and the rain forests and the dead zones are increasing and our lungs are huge compared to the lungs in ancient times when oxygen levels were much greater. WE are in the process of sterilizing this Earth and oxygen will be a victim just like everything else. Oxygen levels are heading down and have been for the last 10,000 years. :(

                      It is the pressure differential up in the mts that makes for less available o2 to breathe. There is still about 21% o2 but less is available as it is more spread out in gas…boyles law…..there is the same amt of oxygen in air but thinner air means less to breathe.

                      In denver there is about seventeen percent less available oxygen….but still essentially the air is 21% and change oxygen atoms…..science.

                    zogerke may have a point, but I don't understand why according to "Boyle's Law." Yes, a given, less oxygen to breathe at higher atmospheres.

                    I don't know, I hiked in the Eastern Sierras at about 9,000 feet recently, and it seemed like there was plenty of oxygen where I was. Didn't notice any change. I'm 20+ years older than last time I hiked there, and I'm a "flatlander" now. Subjective comment, but I'd have noticed the change there if there was a significant change.

Could these lower upper oxygen levels be pulled close to ground level is such events like a mixing of sorts. Probably at some level this kind of current change/mixing (flip flop) occurs sporadically..

                      just like to add that
                      oxygen happily reacts with many elements, so it would be becoming depleted because of its inter-reaction with the concentrated matter we are producing, both by the continual splitting of atoms and man's desire to gather and pile other elements in concentrated forms. Nature did not do that!

                      However, imo, nuclear is by far the worst, because when out of containment, it produces more and more unstable isotopes, with its neutron multiplication expanding its insatiable appetite.

                  Door To Hell Gas Fire Photographs

                  “This place in Uzbekistan is called by locals "The Door to Hell". It is situated near the small town of Darvaz. The story of this place lasts already for 35 years. Once the geologists were drilling for gas. Then suddenly during the drilling they have found an underground cavern, it was so big that all the drilling site with all the equipment and camps got deep deep under the ground.

                  “None dared to go down there because the cavern was filled with gas. So they ignited it so that no poisonous gas could come out of the hole, and since then, it's burning, already for 35 years without any pause. Nobody knows how many tons of excellent gas has been burned for all those years but it just seems to be infinite there.”

                  “Phytoplankton which creates over 50%of our oxygen.40% has died . the ph of our planets waters has dropped from 8.0 to 7.8– the die off of phytoplankton is increasing in rate. Coupled with the transition from rainforest to grazing lands, numbering in the millions of hectares and the great die off of forests in russia and canada, along with the demise of jungle for the plantings for palm oil etc etc–we will within the next ten years be only producing a small fraction of O2 that the earth is producing now. like how our government robbed social security for so many years and now it's running out–except you don't recover from oxygen deprivation.”

                  oxygen depletion, a subject of great interest.

                  Normal air is about 190,000 ppm oxygen. Oxygen is decreasing 4 to 7 ppm per year, a seemingly insignificant amount. But I can FEEL less oxygen. Its claustrophobic. So a few numbers do not tell the whole story. Actually you often feel less oxygen at lower altitudes, the opposite of oxygen density. A complete understanding would entail so many details, and some may not be known.

                    Being surrounded by trees, I believe, helps. If tested, I would think that the oxygen levels in my present vicinity, would be well in excess of those in the concrete Urban landscapes, we call cities.

                However, as more data comes in from the accumulating nuclear pollution and accidents, scientists are documenting the certainty that with the destruction of the oceans and forests, oxygen depletion is rapidly and exponentially increasing. And spraying chemicals for weather modification and burning of fossil fuels and the increased use of pesticides and herbicides because of wide spread use of GMOs are all adding to the catastrophe of nuclear technology.

            Identification of Oxygen-Depleting Components in MX-80 Bentonite
            2008 MRS Fall Meeting.
            Torbjörn Carlssona1 and Arto Muurinena2
            “Abstract
            “After closure, the near-field of a nuclear waste repository contains large amounts of oxygen in tunnels and deposition holes. The bentonite buffer/backfill will contain oxygen as a gas phase in unsaturated pores as well as dissolved gas in porewater. The redox conditions in the bentonite filling after post-closure will change towards reducing conditions. In the initial stage, the development of the redox state is mainly governed by the depletion of oxygen. The main mechanisms of oxygen depletion in the bentonite are: 1) diffusion into the surrounding rock and 2) reactions with accessory minerals and by microbial aerobic consumption of organic matter [1,2]. The reactions leading to oxygen depletion are not, however, well understood. The objective of this work was to gather new information concerning oxygen depletion in MX-80. This was done by measuring oxygen depletion and changes in the redox state in suspensions of 1) MX-80, 2) a heavy fraction of MX-80, or 3) a light fraction of MX-80.”

        In addition, all the forest fires caused by global warming must be destroying oxygen. As well, every time something is sent into space it slices through the atmosphere and there is no healing from any of those wounds. HAARP also uses ionizing radiation and must also be destroying oxygen. Pesticides, herbicides, and dioxins, etc., must also be destroying oxygen. Fracking, and other chemicals used in mining uranium and fossil fuels must also be destroying oxygen.

        Technology cares more about profit than preserving either the environment or life, human or otherwise.

        The oxygen crisis
        Could the decline of oxygen in the atmosphere undermine our health and threaten human survival
        “The rise in carbon dioxide emissions is big news. It is prompting action to reverse global warming. But little or no attention is being paid to the long-term fall in oxygen concentrations and its knock-on effects.
        “Compared to prehistoric times, the level of oxygen in the earth's atmosphere has declined by over a third and in polluted cities the decline may be more than 50%. This change in the makeup of the air we breathe has potentially serious implications for our health. Indeed, it could ultimately threaten the survival of human life on earth, according to Roddy Newman, who is drafting a new book, The Oxygen Crisis.
        “I am not a scientist, but this seems a reasonable concern. It is a possibility that we should examine and assess. So, what's the evidence?
        “Around 10,000 years ago, the planet's forest cover was at least twice what it is today, which means that forests are now emitting only half the amount of oxygen.
        “Desertification and deforestation are rapidly accelerating this long-term loss of oxygen sources.
        “The story at sea is much the same. Nasa reports that in the north Pacific ocean oxygen-producing phytoplankton concentrations are 30% lower today, compared to the 1980s. This is a huge drop in just three decades.

This oxygen starvation is reducing regional fish stocks and diminishing the food supplies of populations that are dependent on fishing. It also causes genetic mutations and hormonal changes that can affect the reproductive capacity of sea life, which could further diminish global fish supplies….”

            VanneV, a lot are saying one thing and another are saying another…I will work hard to come up with some scientific studies that proof or at least show a high probability that Radiation Fall-Out Isotopes are responsible for Oxygen depletion. I wish there were some Scientists out there that get funding on something as this, but I guess we wont see any as it would show the World what they have done…

            I quote again youre source: The Guardian a Mainstream Paper that has a hard reputation for not putting up any useless Scientists:
            In the view of Professor Ervin Laszlo, the drop in atmospheric oxygen has potentially serious consequences. A UN advisor who has been a professor of philosophy and systems sciences, Laszlo writes:

            Evidence from prehistoric times indicates that the oxygen content of pristine nature was above the 21% of total volume that it is today. It has decreased in recent times due mainly to the burning of coal in the middle of the last century. Currently the oxygen content of the Earth's atmosphere dips to 19% over impacted areas, and it is down to 12 to 17% over the major cities. At these levels it is difficult for people to get sufficient oxygen to maintain bodily health: it takes a proper intake of oxygen to keep body cells and organs, and the entire immune system, functioning at full efficiency. At the levels we have reached today cancers and other degenerative diseases are likely to develop. And at 6 to 7% life can no longer be sustained.

              Hi Argo,

              We have known of the depleting of the ozone layer for many decades and it continues to get worse.

              Today there is an article about the discovery of three new ozone depleting gases in our atmosphere.
              http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jun/04/three-new-ozone-depleting-gases-discovered-in-atmosphere

              My simple mind queries: surely, they are not puzzled as to the reason why, when we know that we have highly unstable isotopes 'mating,' creating new elements, who when out-of-containment, continue to increase their lineage of descendants. These 'offspring' also have prolific isotopes who are desperately seeking to engage with another 'mate',

              so, generation after generation they are multiplying!

                  Argo,

                  You may like to add the Ionizing Radiation shown in a graph on 17th May., 2014. I have attempted on a couple of occasions to draw attention to the details therein. While an amateur study, it was, I would think, a supervised one.
                  http://www.spaceweather.com

                  Enter 17 May, in the top right hand corner on the current page to access the graph of 17 May. The graph is half way down the page. Note the maximum radiation is not on the outer edge of the magnetosphere, this causes me to wonder whether it really is cosmic radiation or if it is from our ever increasing dispersal of nuclear radiation into the atmosphere.

                  Check out the radiation level at the altitude of 38,000 feet, a flight height.

                  However, whether from cosmic radiation or nuclear sources, the high reading of ionizing radiation is of concern.

                  I address this to the members of the Science community and the Airline industry…
                  Is it possible that an expert could examine, evaluate and a determination be made re whether the altitude of flight paths could be lowered?

              “’It is assumed that the decisive physiological damage resulting in current forest death must have begun during the 1950’s. This is depicted in a reduction in density and width of tree rings, and in reduced growth, which is true in the Northern Hemisphere and in the Himalayas….Neither aging, location, nor climate can be considered as the possible sole cause of damage….The growth ring of a tree shows exactly what effects the tree has experienced, both in terms of time and seriousness….During the 1950’s and 1960’s, there must have been a global wave of air pollution which caused the initial damage.’
              “The author speculates that it may not be just the usual chemicals which are so damaging to trees. And he notes that these trees are mainly within the 30th to 60th parallels of northern latitude. ‘This zone contains the most nuclear power plants — over 300 — and almost all nuclear reprocessing centers. Also, the vast majority of nuclear weapons tests occurred in this area.’…”

            i've enjoyed the spirited posts on oxygen and since i am barely more than high school educated i can't even joint the discussion. for the past 11 years (until last november) i lived on the east end of Maui. the changes i noticed in my environment there wasn't the lack of oxygen so much as the pollutants in the air. my Hana friends told me it was the VOG (volcanic smog) but more enlightened folks told me about the chemicals in geo-engineering. some days the hills and mountains around were smoky with these chemicals. headaches, burning eyes, young and old with asthma attacks, feeling lethargic and exhausted were daily experiences for all of us. my other observation was the increase of the intensity of the sun over the years. working out in the garden i could sense this increase. before Maui i lived for 4 years in Phoenix, AZ and worked outside, but the intensity of the sun wasn't what it is like now, it was hot but the rays didn't penetrated like they do now. i now live in Puerto Rico and i can feel the same increase in intensity. it's not a lack of oxygen but the added aerosols and feeling like i am being cooked that's my concern. just a note before moving here i spent 2 months with my sister in CA who has Morgellons. her docs tell her she's crazy, well i saw some pretty crazy things come out of her skin. what a world to live in!!

    I don't know about you lot, but that stack is most definitely warped, the leg to the rear, on the right, appears to be twisted far more than the others are, the same leg also has a most unhealthy amount of corrosion at the point just above the point where the tree line passes behind it.

    That stack is coming down, probably directly towards the reactor building right next to it.

    I would not risk the ice wall as ground subsidence alone could send this tower tumbling but I guess it's just a matter of time at those high levels which deteriorate metal compounded by corrosive salt water and drilling for the ice wall but perhaps they assume since it has remained standing for 3 years it will survive. I hope this highly radioactive tower has been discussed prior to initiating this very risky ice wall plan. JMHO

    Ring it with a circle of huge cranes and fasten the booms to all sides. Couldn't hurt. They should be able to do this without too much exposure.

      Sickputer, I was wondering same. Drop some "squares" around the stack in various sizes (larger on the bottom) using cranes. Somehow tighten them around the stack at various levels. Then drop stabilizing vertical bars directly down from the top. Then ideally find some means of attaching them to the top and bottom of the structure or drop some kind of "goop" or graphene netting around it ??? to hold the vertical bars and horizontal stabilizers in place.

      Maybe just a pipe dream. Just a thought.

      I think of rings being dropped onto vertical structures to stabilize them only in this case, you couldn't do anything to jar the structure or it might topple.

      But with Tepco's track record, they're likely to knock the darned thing over with a crane if they try something like this ….

      Am just trying to think of a method to stabilize the tower in place until a longer term solution might be found.

      (Think of building an "Eiffel Tower" type structure around the stack, only its vertical legs would rest inside the round portion of the stack. If done right & somehow stabilized at the bottom, it could provide some stability. Maybe.

    Wondering if like they do with trees, attach a wire to the side where it would not hit anything and pull. At least it might not fall on the wrong place. A helicopter could lower a long hook device onto the top of the tower and grab hold then go sideways to where a winch could maybe safely pull it away from falling on the buildings?

    It was noted by several Web Cam Forum watchers here on enenews that the tower was leaning. It was late 2012 or early 2013. Several people did before and after layover compares and it was indeed leaning. It's in the archives.
    (Web Cam Observers +1)

    IMO – It's amazing that there is something so hot nothing can go near it. I think this is just the beginning of many more metal fatigue failures to come due to high radiation combined with a lack of maintenance in a damp, salt air, earthquake prone environment. The facility will collapse relatively quickly upon itself if it doesn't sink or get hit with another tsunami first.

    On a positive note, the tower hasn't fallen… yet. ;)

    This thing would need about 6 acres of clear space to fall into, the space 1/3 as wide as it is long. See 6 acres of space anywhere there? Personally, I think they should choose a space that is least harmful, wire it so that with the next big quake it just might fall that direction, and cross every appendage that they possibly can.

    Actually, I like the ring idea to go along with the above. There's never going to be anything easy going on here, but that seems somewhat doable. Knowing them, though, they'd rather play with robots and other toys rather than commit some real effort that has some timliness.

  • I see, so instead of an "understandable" kitty litter mistake, there was a basic mistake that any chemist would pick up on out of the gate, and that is why we have over 500 dirty plutonium bombs spread among the country.

    hmmmmmm, and Farok Shariff was in charge of the disposal. Google that name.

    Emission stacks are notoriously difficult to deal with. Decommissioning of a plant that has run several decades with no accidents, the emission stacks are a PITA to deal with….other than the actual inside of a reactor, the emission stacks are one of the highest radioactive things at a NPP.

    The emission stack in question took the full brunt of the meltdown in reactor 1…. they vented who knows how much hot shit right out the top of that stack… its surprising that it doesn't glow.

    Right now, all of the nastycrap is inside that stack… if it falls, contorlled or otherwise… its a very bad thing.

    If the stuff that causes the 25 sieverts per hour gets spread around the immediate area, that would most likely be game over for Tepco.

    They may evacuate some areas (as they have done for years around Units 1-3) but they will try to do some remediation even if they are forced off the entire island. In such an extreme case I suspect they run bombing raids of sand, borax, and concrete on the worst areas, maybe the whole island.

    It would be the same actions that were considered but never used in the first month of the crisis. The Russians did it at Chernobyl, the Japanese nucleorats slumbered.

    Here's the famous photos of the 2011 10 sievert hotspots near the stack. The second photo really shows how massive the stack is. I will retract my circle of cranes suggestion. It is a big structure.

      I have had chronic Lyme disease for over 10 years now , it's in my heart and brain .
      It took many years and nine specialists years to finally get the diagnosis . So many unnecessary diagnostic tests too that scare the crap out of me that I have had done , I'm talking radiological tests . When I finally found that I had it through Lyme literate disease specialist the disease had wiped me out emotionally and put a strain on all things
      all the chronic pain
      I am happy to say that since I've moved to the coast I've been better , I had to give up my life of being a horticulturist till this year when I said enough is enough I have to grow my own food again , so I'm taking over public spaces , I have underground composts too .
      So far so good although my joints have Been acting up again and the nearest Specialist is at the cape .
      This disease is now killing people with a new strain that's killing outright with heart attacks .

      I was bitten at least ten times with a rash , I was living in the woods. Now I have moved to the coast where surprisingly we don't have so many ticks .
      I was treated with the bernisconi protocol .

        Have you tried class3 or class4 infrared cold laser therapy for your pain management?

        Class4 penetrates deeper causing pain relief and regeneration enhancement.
        They don't know why, but it's natural, safe and drug sorcery free.

        There are special glasses that you as a patient should wear while in treatment for eye safety. Lasers in the 4class are invisible to the human eye.

        A nation of pain Judy foreman

        Judy Foreman has done a brilliant job of shedding light on one of the biggest problems in American medical care. The under-treatment of chronic pain in adults is an embarrassment to the medical profession, from inadequate education of medical students about any aspect of pain to a prevailing view that people requiring opioids for chronic pain are guilty until proven innocent. Sadly, even oncologists receive almost no training in pain management.

        The book is encyclopedic in scope, covering many research efforts, patient stories, and interviews from the nation’s leading pain experts. I can’t even imagine how much research was done to compile such a vast amount of information. This book is a gift to patients who have suffered unnecessarily AND to doctors who need more education and should be more sympathetic to people suffering with this prevalent and highly debilitating condition. When all is said and done, we are all but one major car accident away from a life of chronic pain. Judy Foreman gets a gold star for writing a book that should be required reading for all physicians.

          I cannot help thinking however that the reason for my pain subsiding is due to the fact that this disease is not gone but lurking deep inside of me .
          I have read that a lot of diseases are on the rise with radiation on the rise .

            You have pleased the one that invented DNA, human thinks as usual he has conquered DNA; but has failed to realise that there is DNA within DNA, within DNA.

            Pain is in the mind, once you realise this your well on your way to a happy life; substantially pain reduced. Your pain wants to be your friend and be respected.

            We have lost connection with the Universe and Terra.

            With your condition you must consult an MD/Dr if ever considering taking iodine supplementation. This can impact people with potential heart conditions. (heads up)

            The answer to your question exists, just look to increases in morbidity since ww2. Cancer increases, disease mutation and resistance to antibiotics.The Australian bone scandal after atomic test botch up, where sr90 was spread over the nation, the government collected the bones of the dead without asking permission for years to cover up their devil mates crime. Cover up as usual. People died of bone cancer thinking it was nothing.

            The Christmas Island concentration camp where the Australian government places innocent boat people fleeing evil is where atomic tests were done in the near past. Can you imagine how they are being radiated?

                  I understand your reluctantly; I was once like you. With RSD the most painful pain syndrome known to human. I was told it was all in the mind and I rejected this for some time. Taking drug sorcery until I received divine intervention.

                  Without the mind there is no pain, no function, no movement. When you accept your fate and reconnect with your divine aspect you learn to switch on and off these connections to the brain stem. Yes the shell has a lifespan very much influenced by environment, drug sorcery and free will (not necessarily our own). A happy connected being can exist in vastly reduced pain, even to the extent of being rejected by the whole human race.

                  The mind is TOTALLY involved in pain, without the mind there is no pain.

                  Mutch of what I convey will be very hard to find on the internet because it involves faith and love, 2 things very lacking in this devil empire.

    This stack….is what vents pressure and radiation into the atmosphere from the reactor in "normal times." Every reactor has one of these vents along with the statement: "Only low-level radiation is released if the need arises." But, that need constantly arises otherwise each reactor would blow open. Reactors are not the "sealed systems" people thought they were.

    This "green, clean, and cheap" energy monstrosity with their venting pipes, have been venting radiation directly off their reactors since the beginning. That is why the surge in cancer in the last 50 years…on top of the 1,000s of nuclear weapons test.

    This accident is not an accident because, it was well-known by the people who created this dirty bomb that reactors eventually breakdown…even faster when they lose their cooling water. Just like the actual builders of the Titanic knew that boat would eventually sink….everything is vulnerable to the whims of Nature. Man is not smart enough to challenge the power of Nature and win.
    Nothing but failures from Man's arrogance litter and poison the Planet's land, water, and air.

    That will ALWAYS be Man's destiny because he suffers from the desire to obfuscate more Power and Control of Nature and control over his fellow beings. The more Man tries to control Nature and other Men the more of a disaster he creates.

    Living in harmony (with Nature) and ensuring that the "right things" are done when using his technologies is not on the radar of…

    a spot of good news Japan drops charges against Free Lance Journalist.(for now) They have what is called a Kisha system,similar to what is proposed here,to only "certify" some designated journalists.
    _______ From the Article______
    Arrests, home searches, interrogation by the domestic intelligence agency and threats of judicial proceedings—who would have thought that covering the aftermath of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster would have involved so many risks for Japan’s freelance journalists?" Reporters Without Borders states on its website. "The discrimination against freelance and foreign reporters resulting from Japan's unique system of Kisha clubs, whose members are the only journalists to be granted government accreditation, has increased since Fukushima."

    Freelancers are often barred from news conferences, the press-freedom group adds. And the owner of the Fukushima plant, TEPCO, has "denied access to the information available to the mainstream media (which censor themselves)".

    I wonder what reactor is in danger of getting struck if the tower falls over. Maybe it will rip off that kevlar tent, and the total wreck below will be revealed. If it's reactor 4, we may see proof of the fakery, as in the pristine fuel pool broadcasts that were probably destroyed or burnt up as some have said.

I wish Hollywood would write a happy ending for this, but the slippery slope has turned into the abyss. What a dumb way to boil water and murder your fellow man. What an utter disregard for life, of everything blue and green and beautiful. Ugh! I just want to scream at somebody. F you nukies, go back to hell where you came from!

  • IN case anyone wants a quick science lesson….

    Brownian motion is a billiard ball effect that keeps gases fairly well mixed even in a closed room.

    CO2 is similar enough in weight to oxygen and nitrogen that they will all mix pretty well even without shaken or stirred. Any claim that CO2 is a heavy molecule therefore will all go toward the ground and choke us, is as absurd as Plutonium is heavy therfore it won't float far. They used that balderdash at WIPP and they measure Fukushima Plutonium in Lithuainia.

    http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/81815/Brownian-motion

    Also for those thinking that CO2 which is increasing, will displace the oxygen and make the oxygen percent alot less, the answer is not hardly at all. CO2 is measured in parts per million, I think 350 to 400 is reality today but that is just off top of my head, Google it, O2 is measured in percent, 21% is 210,000 parts per million.

    I found a recent article partly in Japanese about damage to the inside Reactor 3. This technical article concerns a crack in the expansion joint of main steam pipe D in reactor 3 which is involved if the reactor SCRAM's. There are pictures of the crack just before the main steam isolation valve. It appears that this sort of expansion joint is used on all reactors in Japan. I fear that this design failure makes all of them vulnerable to earthquake damage at this specific part of the reactor. The Japanese portions are translated into English.

    I recommend to read more from the index of ratical…

    Quote from the Research above:
    here are similar value judgments made with respect to other health effects. The health problems are externalised, i.e. placed beyond the responsibility of government, and they are borne by individuals and their families.
    The risk/benefit decision making which arose from balancing `health effects' against `economic and social benefit' is based on risk and benefit to society, i.e. governments, rather than cost to the individual or family unit. Value judgments have been made as to the level of health effects and deaths `acceptable' to the public. Because of military control of A-bomb studies and military need for personnel to handle radioactive materials, many of these value judgments were cloaked in secrecy for the sake of `national security'.

    In a Democracy, all the Governments are just Administrators of the people i.e their actions should represent the voice of the people…

    I wish we could check, if acceptable deaths are in line with the wishes of all their citizens …if it is so..then this place deserves no other faith…
