      First step to what? The definition of stupid is expecting a better odor to eminate from the same pile of rotting garbage from one week to the next. Face it. They will either report homosexuality is on the rise in Japan or chest x-rays have been found to be harmless.

    #Fukushima: Hanging by a Thread http://theintelhub.com/2012/04/27/fukushima-hanging-by-a-thread/ Are you ready—it is becoming clear that we, our children and our entire civilization is hanging by a thread. It is a very sorry thing to report that we have literally shot ourselves in the foot with a big nuclear shotgun full of radioactive particles of the worst conceivable kind.
    A MUST READ

    Yes, Koide and all are HEROES! If you haven't seen any videos yet of Dr. Koide's heartfelt, impassioned pleas to the Japanese Diet last year, please search them out on YouTube! They are stunnining in their indictment of a blind, heartless Japanese government who idly stand by watching their children become poisened with irreparable radiation damage from Fukushima. And they continue to hold children's marathons and beauty contests for children who eat Fukushima-contaminated food. Shameful!

    I wish Dr. Koide and all the very best in their efforts to WAKE THE WORLD UP! Thank you!!!

      Let us hope and pray for a miracle, so this prediction will NOT come true.

        Well his additions add up, dont you think? Altho he should also take into account all the food and water being contaminated too. It's all just a vicious cycle. EVERYTHING will have radiation in it. Nothing will be missed. Vicious deadly cycle.

          I have no expertise in this area, so I have to refrain from any predictions myself.

          The only thing I do know for sure is that no one has a crystal ball and so no one can know the outcome with 100% assurances that their predictions will come true.

          Finally, I do believe in miracles, so I reserve the right to maintain some hope for the future of Japan and our world. :-)

            This doe not mean to say I don't think the situation is very, very serious. I don't mean to downplay it at all.

                Prof. Takeda is talking about a personal feeling based on what he received through one of his reader's data, as a scientist, he can only guess by scientifical numbers he got,and these numbers are fact. he never claimed to be 100% sure about his prediction (a scientific never did, prediction isn't a science), since we don't know for sure what would happen in the future, as stated in the article he also claimed the measurement cannot be taking as a global measurement since it was made by one person in restricted square meter area, but looking at the sriousness of the situation it cannot be denied, and these numbers are from these particuliar spots are fact, so they cannot be denied either. We need to have a global measurement of the whole area and looks about previous numbers since the beginning of the disaster if we want to know for sure. But Takeda himself never meant to be 100% sure of this

                  I agree, Daruma, we need a larger number of measurements from a broader area, not only in Japan, but in areas like Hawaii, the Pacific Northwest and West Coast of the U.S., which received the greatest fallout last year and is first in line for additional fallout.

                  I am very thankful that Whoopie posted this link and that the good professor did the projections he did. My comments to Whoopie were simply my honest response to her question about whether I agreed with the professor's assessment. I have no expertise in this area, so I do not feel qualified to agree or disagree.

                  Am I concerned his assessment will prove to be true? After all I've learned over the past year about the horrors of nuclear radiation and its affects on living things, and its tendency to GET WORSE before it gets better, I would have to answer: Of COURSE I am concerned. Only someone unschooled in the dangers of nuclear radiation, or someone fooling themselves, would not be.

              LOL :-D Thanks for the pep talk or warning (depending on how you look at it) ;-) , Time is Short. I am fully aware of the thick skins and various communication styles here at enenews and love them all! That is one of the beautiful things about this forum, the variety of ways each of us approaches communicating here, and the fact, for the most part, we are respectful of our differences.

              Actually, I am not new here, though…I have been an active participant for some time now, so perhaps you have missed my posts as we may be posting at differing times of the day? (I'm on Pacific time here in Seattle, so don't often post here early morning Eastern time.)

              To see some of my postings of late, you should check out the "Possible Fukushima-Related Anomalolies" Section, especially the April 10-April 25 section, where I posted quite a bit on some of the disturbing health issues I and others have witnessed and/or personally experienced over the past year. Quite an eye-opener. Perhaps you have some similar observations you'd like to add? It is a given these are just anecdotal observations, but the point of sharing them here on this forum is to help discern any trends, which then could be followed up on by scientific investigation. Anyway, I appreciate your welcome nonetheless! :-)

                LOL! I think I've just invented a new word: "anomalolies!" :-D Kind of sounds like "tamales."

                Anyway, I'm sure you all knew what I meant anyway… :-)

      5mSv/y will be the annual dose in Japan by 3/31/15, a little less than 3 years from now, according to Prof. Takeda Kunihiko from Chubu university.

      Thank you Prof Takeda. I was waiting for someone to calculate the increasing accumulation rate. So very sad for all concerned.

      And thanks Whoopi for posting a link with meat in it.

    More layers of distracting smaller picture crap…Of course, the problem of irradiation by radionuclides from FukuDai and other post 3/11/2011 sources is worldwide, ongoing, worsening each day and not merely related to the rubble that will be buried, but also to the rubble, including from the nuclear explosions at FukuDai, that are and are to be incinerated and to all future material, watersheds and crops that will, forever as far as we all know know, be increasingly contaminated by fallout from nearly perpetual fissioning of at least three coriums of FukuDai for more than 390 days so far!

      Chernobyl corium from only ONE reactor fissioned for SEVEN days…FukuDai is three roughly 150 ton coriums, fissioning without any containment whatsoever for greater than 390 days.

        The more than ONE MILLION people that have died due to Chernobyl since 1986 and the MILLIONS of babies, 80% born unhealthy after Chernobyl, when born at all, are an increasingly worsening result of only SEVEN DAYS of fissioning from only one reactor corium and nuclear explosion (not steam explosion). Every nation in Europe besides Spain and Portugal have thousands to hundreds of thousands of square kilometers of intensely contaminated lands. Only in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine have there been any responsible behavior shown by status quo governments, which means permanent evacuations even though areas of Chernobyl era evacuation worthy contamination levels are found in parts every nation of Europe except for Spain and Portugal.

    That article I posted earlier just Popped up at Huffington.
    Two Meltdowns: Fukushima and the US Economy http://huff.to/IvHHaZ via @huffingtonpost
    The United States is not facing a nuclear crisis, but we are struggling with an economic crisis. The meltdown at Fukushima helps clarify our own meltdown.

    The saga of Fukushima-Daiichi follows the famous arc of the failed project: unwarranted enthusiasm followed by unmitigated disaster and then random retribution (search for the guilty, punishment of the innocent, and promotion of the uninvolved).

      I could go on for a few more pages, but I think maybe people get the point..

      FUKU is just the tip of the iceberg and a wake up call.

      This is a GLOBAL problem, affecting EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE there is nuclear power ANYTHING;

      Mining
      Processing
      Power
      Recycling
      Reprocessing
      Breeding
      Storage
      Etc.

    Who is going to help?

    All of the pro nuke agencies?

    Nope.

    Any of the faux regulators?

    Nope.

    Any of the nuke industry folks?

    Nope, odds are that they have never helped after ANY accident, and definitely not financially and willingly to compensate for damages, without lawsuits.

    Who is left? Yea, you guessed it, Joe Schmoe the taxpayer, cleaning up after the corporation has made all of the profits and now is disappeared over the horizon. The risk gets transferred to the taxpayer, meaning us.

    The help pretty much boils down to the government… yea, that evil, too big, fraud filled, corrupt thing that corporations hate, except when it comes to covering their risks, accidents, and failures. Oh, and they love that corporate welfare that they all enjoy.
