NHK Documentary, ‘Radioactive Water: Fukushima Daiichi’s Hidden Crisis‘ — Feb. 1, 2014:

Zengo Aizawa, Tepco VP: “Even if we found out where the water is coming from the question is how to stop it. I think it will be difficult but we have no other choice and if we fail that would be miserable. We just have to succeed somehow.”

        There is nobody on that site! IMPOSSIBLE!

        Please EneNews readers do just a little thinking and a little independent research of your own.

        Oh I wish that my videos were back up. Google and Youtube banned me for DOCUMENTING with verifiable scientific information based on Chemistry, Physics, Math and supported by Published PEER REVIEWED PAPERS, establishing a solid argument for my premise stated here "THERE IS NO ONE ON THE FUKUSHIMA SITE AND HAS NOT BEEN FROM DAY "1".

        Facts released in news articles and statements by TEPCO, IAEA and others, if truthful lead to one inescapable conclusion.


        It is a scientific impossibility for any human to be walking around the Fukushima site, unless of course, the truth of what really happened is not what we are and have been told.

      Quotes from Will Rogers apply precisely to this mess and you will see where a certain power company on a power trip would fit.

      "There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves."

      "Last year we said, "Things can't go on like this'" and they didn't, they got worse."

      "It isn't what we don't know that gives us trouble, it's what we know that ain't so."

      I know that people want to HOPE that they are just brain-dead liars, but they really cannot fix this. They mishandled everything from the start, they're guilty as sin, but it's done. Now, shy of a miracle, maybe no one will be able to fix THE WORLD.

    This article is another way to say the same thing: The Pacific Ocean has become an open-air nuclear reactor. The plankton in the ocean produces about 50% of the Oxygen, for all us 'air breathers'. The plankton is mostly gone. The Methane/Hydrogen Sulphide releases, from the ocean are rapidly accelerating. Time is short. Enjoy it while you can!

    Talking about enjoyment… I want to see those who ordered the deed: nuclear bombing of Fuku#3, to be executed in public. Made to stand in a container of radioactive water so as to melt to death, in the nude, live streamed.

      Wow. Very interesting theory. I read through a lot of it. Does the person writing this address that these mass die-offs in the ocean are also going to affect the food chain and we will be experiencing food shortages in the future – to be followed by riots and then economic problems and probably economic collapse.

      The thing is there is nothing anyone could have ever done about it. And our own poisoning of the planet is only exacerbating and accelerating die-offs.

    Uranium is being mined at increased rates worldwide. In many places, where there is little to no controls over the process. This waste is being spread globally.

    Nuclear mining wastes, manufactured wastes, military weapon used/waiting to be used, processed uranium are massive parts of the long term nuclear problem. This waste is being spread globally.

    FUFU is just the lastest part of this massive global toxic process. 500 other power plants await a coming disaster. More are being built. The waste is being spread globally

    The mendacity of the nuclear industry has been so deeply seeded that many involved believe the industry's lies as the truth = See Gundersen's epiphany.

    How many on here are really surprised by the idea of FUFUs wastes being dumped into the ocean. Not many, I would suspect.

    FUFU is lost. The story is played out. We are just playing at tail chasing on here now. The resulting 3 years later revelations were known on here from the first day in our guts by most of us.

    FUFU and nuclear power is part of a larger pattern of abuse by the industrial/technological powers that be – the global empire/s of the few.

    It is time for mass direct action towards a global shift in governance against the forces of the accumulation of wealth and power by the few.

    We need public ownership of the means of production for our own safety and for the future safety of the world we live in.

        You're an idealist and that's admirable. But Fukushima will NEVER be "a good thing."

        I also used to think that terrible things can motivate good things. Like the notorious fire in the garment industry in New York in the early 1900's motivated better safety regulations for labor.

        Because we all unite and struggle and then progress always happens. It's always progress, right?

        I found that paradigm shattered on 3/11/11. I WANT here to be a replacement paradigm that will save us. Just struggling to see where it might come from.

    • ftlt

      The over focusing on FUFU has become a negative for this site.

      FUFU is not an E.L.E. event. It is but a part of the human industrial process that will combine into a E.L.E. event – too soon

      The current global policy that leads to massive pollution and resource depletion must not be allowed to go on unchecked or we will meet our end as a species.

      • I think Fukushima is a tipping point for the Pacific Ocean between Japan and the North American coast, although effects will be felt elsewhere.

        We are already on the path of extinction because of our destruction of the eco-system and our suicidal war on the human genome.

        I believe we could avoid complete collapse if we would act very rapidly now to make changes necessary for survival, especially halting nuclear and safely containing unimaginable volumes of nuclear waste.

        We also better stop injecting toxic waste into the earth using fracking technology and stop using salt caverns as waste disposal sites. We need to halt all dumping in the ocean and we need to discontinue pesticides and herbicides that are significant endocrine disruptors.

        I don't expect to see overt collapse in my lifetime (although signs are definitely growing), but I do think our blind denial and greed will keep us on the wrong path and that we have but a few generations left before chaos reigns.

        • Sickputer

          Good points although I feel Japan will experience an overt collapse of their economy in this decade. Tourism will be non-existent, and there will not be Olympics held in Tokyo in 2020. They better stop building Olympic condos on that radioactive sludge shoreline in Tokyo Bay!

          Survivors of Future Shock 2 will employ adaptive strategies for survival. Southern Hemisphere escape for the elite is the best tactic, but food, water, and air survival techniques are necessary right now in the Northern Hemisphere.

          Fish is now a four letter word. Filtered and protected water is the new gold standard for longer life. Food sourcing is a top priority. Air filtering in homes will help. Carbon face mask usage by millions will be the big sign that an On the Beach global nuclear disaster has altered the civilized world forever. Third world countries will have wars and diseases beyond the pale.

          This is our Brave New Nuclear World. Get used to it, but don't give up.

            I would concur with most everything said in the above comments.

            I do wonder about when the 'waves of death' and suffering will become obvious to most. I think that time may be coming sooner than we would like to think. Sometimes, where I live, it seems like it's already upon us.
            (Small Town pop 2000, Western Sierra Foothills California, my personal observation.)

            IMO- A lot of people complaining of fatigue, mental tiredness and others dieing too young and for odd reasons. Early births and miscarriages to otherwise healthy young women also seems to be happening.

            Outright lies, coverups and *'Plausible Deniability' is the Nuclear Industries only real game plan. It's all they've got.

            *"high-ranking officials may deny any awareness of such act in order to insulate themselves and shift blame on the agents who carried out the acts, confident that their doubters will be unable to prove otherwise. The lack of evidence to the contrary ostensibly makes the denial plausible, that is, credible."

            "What made the responsibility difficult to pin down in retrospect was a sophisticated system of institutionalized vagueness and circumlocution whereby no official – and particularly a President – had to officially endorse questionable activities."

          I agree. We are combining two distinct factors: the imperfectability of machines and the fallibility of humans. This has been known for centuries or longer. When these two factors come into contact with lethality, danger to everyone and everything occurs. I am certain that humans have violated a number of natural or cosmic laws and are now stuck with the terrible consequences. Genetics offers another opportunity to create immense dangers. Probably as far back as the 19th century an invisible line was crossed that indicated humans were entering an area of great perils. We are fully in that zone now. We need as a species an infusion of wisdom.

        In my trade (metal fab), a common saying is that one needs to be smarter than the material. The implication is that the material is only what one puts into it. It has no life, and no intelligence of its own.

        Fewer and fewer, at least in the US and some other developed (or should I say deviloped) nations work in industry. All most of the population sees is the final product, the outward signs of that productions such as smoke, or the junk after the fact. A prime example of that is the mass of plastics and floating islands of it in the oceans. I think that if many could envision the whole process they'd be quite appalled. One should seriously look into the 'recycling' industry, and that we're still not too much farther along there than glass, basic metals, and, of course, organic debris. One might mention plastics, but I imagine recycling is a pretty small portion of overall production, though I may be underplaying that and I won't bother to check public figures of such.

        What we have is a result that been entertained, even invited to the party. Enjoying ourselves, seems our wastes is the incessant boor every social group has that everyone dislikes. Every effort might be made to keep knowledge of the party from the ass, but he's crashed the festivities and will eventually spoil everyone's happy mood.

    …in no way does focusing on Fukushima ionize this site. I would argue just the opposite.

    By focusing on the enormous ionizing nuclear horror, the planet's very spirit, the life energy that flows through the biosphere, becomes ever more precious and sacred.

    Japanese Government Plans to Dump Radiated, Strontium-90-Rich Groundwater into Pacific

    By Christina Sarich

    All trust has been shattered. It isn’t as if the Pacific Ocean needs more radioactive mire, but the Japanese government is trying to dump their poisoned ground water into an ocean that is already quickly dying. A senior scientist at MIT, Ken Buesseler, and co-author of Japan’s Continuing Nuclear Nightmare says, “ultimately you can’t keep putting contaminated water in tanks. You are going to have to decontaminate and release some of that water. There’s a finite amount of real estate . . .” but Tepco isn’t decontaminating that water. They simply don’t have the resources to do it. High strontium-90 levels found in groundwater are simply going to be redirected to the Pacific if the government gets approval.

    My question is whose approval? Who ultimately is in charge of saying, “sure you can put so much poison in the ocean, it will never be able to support life again, and while you’re at it, go ahead and start watching that toxic, radioactive sludge travel up the food chain, until it reaches human beings, and kills them off faster than the plague.” The Nationwide Fisheries Foundation has been called upon to support the dumping, ‘as long as the water’s contamination level is far below the legal limit,’ one that has been recently changed by governments around the world.

    • We Not They Finally

      Exactly. It is not their decision to make! Every drop of that poison that they have ALREADY dumped into the Pacific is a crime against not just humanity, but the whole basis of life on Earth.

      They need to evacuate Japan, and then flood all the water they possibly can INLAND. Then Japan needs to be put into international receivership, with all proceeds going to victims and/or to mitigation of the disaster.

      Oh, and JAIL the people who did this. Jail them and throw away the key. Then let them eat fish!

      And what kind of idiots are the Nationwide Fisheries Foundation? Is that in Japan or here? There is NO "below legal limit." All we've EVER had here is "what the Nazis decide to call legal." And they will wreck their own fisheries based on that?

      As a species, we may not survive. But we sure need to be SMARTER than this!

  • Nick

    Toxic at the atomic level.

    Wrap your brain-pans around that.

    No bowing is gonna cure us.

  • As present terminology use here above indicates, survival is unlikely. We are still avoiding naming the names of the wealth-crazed who own and are therefore personally responsible for each ecology damaging action — insisting on talking 'corporation' or 'government' as though they were persons.
    The power of wealth produced by work and creativity should not be allowed in the hands of persons without ethics, or narcissistic personality disorders. We see the results; death of humanity and probably all life.

    • We Not They Finally

      No one's avoiding names. Like Dick Cheney — there's one name for you. And "the power of wealth produced by work and creativity" has ALREADY been drained away. And whoever we name as the evildoers, the POWER has been drained away. Tell them they should do this, or they shouldn't do that, and they will just laugh.

      The problem IS wrongful negative power grabs. Our only hope (well, geo-politically — unclear that we can do anything geo-physically by now)is to reverse the massive ongoing theft of POWER.

      I don't know how to do it. I just think that that is what would have to be done.

    Nuclear reactors that are AWOL are not okay.

    I share Alfred North Whitehead's view that even minerals and atoms have some sort of feeling or consciousness. You might want to look at his book Science And The Modern World or The Adventure of Ideas. If so, then Plutonium can be communicated with in the same fashion that Luther Burbank talked to plants and achieved some remarkable discoveries and results. Instead of fearing radioactive substances like Cesium 137 one might have a go at making "friends". Become an inonizing radiation whisperer!:)
    This is also a very Buddhist approach.
    Anyway fear and anger are unpleasant and have no effect on radioactive particles as far as I can determine.

      Why don't we just feed the plutonium a happy meal?

      • We Not They Finally

        Oh, I forgot: the plutonium's happy meal is US. Capt. Nemo, high ideals aside, you forget that the plants that Luther Burbank talked to were beautiful, natural, Godly creations. Plutonium is an un-natural demon brought into this world by demonic impulse.

        Start talking "exorcism" and maybe there will be a productive conversation. Let's get our positive energy going towards the people, plants and animals being killed off by the demon's spawn.

        • We Not They Finally

          Oh, I've got it: Why don't we set up megaphones around Fukushima broadcasting the Beatles' "All you need is love"? I'm sure that the plutonium molecules will come running!

          Observing from a meta level I can say that those demons unleashed are humanities contribution to the evolution of spirit in form – now what is all the fuzz about then – sit back, enjoy the ride… too bad I am not meta but right in the middle of this transformational process of being fried..,.

    Another make believe Land of OZ..cancer has killed many of millions of people and is a very real disease! 🙁

    31,750,000 slotted for direct death from Cancer in Japan..very sad.

    Numbers are growing rapidly and fantasy thinking and smiles will not change any of these people's real world pain and Earth reality.

    • Homolumina Homolumina

      What is happening is "ungeheuerlich", monstrous, incomprehensible, raw, super real and my grief has no more containment… struggling still to anchor within this context and recenter…

  • We Not They Finally

    They still think that they have a viable "containment vessel" in that reactor? And they are still talking about "leaks"?

    It's mental-institution talk.

    "How do we stop it?"

    Physicists have been asking themselves this question since they started accumulating it. The technology does not exist to stop it.

    That niggling problem, potential annihilation, didn't slow its development and expansion, though. There's no problem an indemnity clause can't fix.

  • Nick

    There is no such thing as a nuclear expert.

    Experts fix things.

    Experts don't lie.

    No, no nuclear expert on the planet has stepped up to the plate and called for the elimination of nuclear anything.

    Nothing short of that matters.

    Still giving money to 350.org? Like carbon is evil?


    I would welcome climate change forever, not this horrid death that nuclear has bestowed on us all.

    Still wearing pink?

    Amazing how conned many of us have been.
