Syndic Literary Journal No. 10, by poet Taki Yuriko and translated by John Saxon, Dec. 2013:

Excerpts from ‘Fukushima has an Ongoing Melt-Out’

  • On March 11, 2011, Pandora’s Box was opened.
  • TEPCO reports, “1000 tons of groundwater Flow daily into the reactor structure. Half the contaminated water is Pumped into land tanks, but Half leaks out to sea”
  • In short, Melted nuclear fuel has accumulated In the reactor bottom – Meltdown.
  • But now it has breached the reactor bottom, Leaking out of the containment vessel – Melt-through.
  • Containment vessels have at least two openings, An entrance for ground water and An exit for contaminated water. Nuclear fuel mixing With the ground water and Leaking into the sea – Melt-out!
  • Is this not The worst possible outcome?
  • But they deliberately hide the danger, Removing key terms from their reports.
  • With the kind of disaster Never seen in human history and Imagined only in movies, Why is there no clear admission?
  • The Japanese government says it can retire these plants within forty years. But only if robots can be developed in ten years To replace the human workers And determine where the problem is Inside the highly radioactive reactor. “Where the problem is?!”
  • It’s the “hole” through which the Melted nuclear fuel is leaking! Why don’t they SAY THAT?!

Tokyo Shinbun editorial (pdf), Aug. 22, 2013: “After the massive accident at Fukushima, we are now in a situation in which massive accidents occur daily.”

Japan Times, Commentary by Prof. Christopher Hobson of Waseda University: Apr. 24, 2014: […] many serious challenges lie ahead. There will be more leaks and problems at the No. 1 plant. There will also have to be the controlled release of contaminated water into the ocean. Public support and understanding will be needed through these difficult processes. For this to happen, Tepco needs to begin to rebuild its credibility with the public […] Tepco’s regaining the trust of Japan’s public is just as difficult a task as resolving the technical challenges in decommissioning the plant. The only way this might happen is […] to be more honest and transparent about the problems in Fukushima.

      Dear Nick, +1Mio… I have spoken to a friend in Europe who owns a photo press agency with ties to high level celebrities. My idea was to get a celebrity like Pink for example into the boat as spokesperson. Artists always are at the forefront, many of them are aware – but to my great disappointment that friend thinks he cannot do anything about the bad stuff in the world and prefers to spread the word in his small private circles…. grrrrr – my approach is that we need to mobilize those who will be affected most – our intelligent young people – and the mothers and fathers – those are the target groups. So, a celeb who reaches young people would be my person of choice. Then you get the attention – and from there it goes. Remember STING singing "in Russia and America is a growing feeling of Hysteria'''" and that momentum that was created pushed the whole movement through from the bottom to the top…

      • Homolumina Homolumina

        Another idea that I have is that an advertisement agency should pick this up – plastering the big cities with pictures of the children being born in Fallujah now. Some agencies do non profit projects as a win win – bringing together such an agency with the celeb and kick off a campaign – bingo !

    There are two sources for contaminated water at Fukushima:
    1. Corium Groundwater. In the mudrock underneath the three reactors, are corium lava tubes filled with groundwater and nuclear debris. The highly contaminated groundwater makes its way almost immediately into the ocean nearby. 1,000 tonnes of groundwater flow through the plant every day.
    2. Cooling Water. TEPCO dumps 300 tonnes of cooling water into Reactors1-3 every day. They recover about half of this water, which ends up in the leaky tank farm. The rest drains through big holes in the bottom of containment vessels and into the ground. There, it mixes with groundwater, and flows into the ocean.

    The harbor mouth is not closed off from the ocean with a lock, so radionuclides flow right into the Ocean. At least 1,150 tonnes per day of highly contaminated water flows into the Ocean per day. The entire Pacific Ocean Ecosystem is now being affected by this runoff. The Pacific Ocean Ecosystem is in a state of collapse.

    Tokyo and Central Japan needed to be evacuated. There was no Tokyo evacuation. Instead, we have business as usual.

    "Business As Usual" is killing the entire planet, don't you think? 😉

    • Nails in the coffin Nails in the coffin

      I'd guess that TEPCO and the Nukies would appreciate you describing their poisonous groundwater flow in terms of weight (tonnes) as they have instructed the media to do. That way the descriptors of our little hemorrhage problem are conveyed in much less alarming terms. However, don't we normally think of liquid in terms of volume and not weight? Wouldn't it be more effective to use GALLONS instead of tonnes? One ton of water equals about 239 gallons. I don't know how much more a gallon of 'Fuku springwater' weighs than just H20. But if they're close in weight, then we're talking over 200,000 gallons per day of ocean-life-murdering toxic waste runoff. An Olympic sized pool is around 660,000 gallons. So about 1/3 of an Olympic pool per day. Wow. I wonder how long it will take to make our Oceans sterile.

    From a physics standpoint this has been obvious since day one, and yet for three years I have been rebuffed by my friends and peers as an alarmist because their is no mention of this reality in mainstream media, despite the physics.

    • PhilipUpNorth PhilipUpNorth

      Just remind your peers that the proposition that a melted nuclear core can reach only 2,700C, and then would be heated solely by decay heat, is a myth.
      Ongoing Iodine-131 releases indicate continuous criticalities in molten corium, driving temperatures to 5,000C, proving melt out, proving corium lava tubes, and proving 3 rogue nuclear reactors located well underground.

        Cassandra was a princess. If anyone had a chance, she did. But there was too much hubris and pride, no way to think that their "lifestyle" (whatever equivalent then) could be wrecked, then the whole city was destroyed overnight. The destruction was devastatingly rapid.

        Here the devastation is crushing, escalating, but not overnight, and spread out over many locales and eco-systems — giving many more ways to evade and deny. And who has the loud enough, most persuasive voice? So I do think that the comment about using celebrities is a good one. If it can be done.

      Cdog comments that the physics of 3/11/2011 are obvious, but suppressed in corporate media. A compelling precedent is the suppression of the obvious, conventional controlled demolition of WTC7 in NYC on 9/11/2001. It was seen on corporate TV on the day of the accident, and then no more.

      To this day most people are not aware of WTC7, and the NY Times refuses to cover the grassroots effort to investigate. Thousands of vetted architects, engineers, and other scientists and researchers are involved in a sustained effort to inform the public and promote truth and justice.

      Success is due to a relatively small group who are struggling uphill. They know as a scientifically proven fact that a modern, 47 story steel-framed skyscraper was imploded in broad daylight, that NIST has lied about the cause of its 'collapse' for a dozen years, and that corporate media have kept a majority of the populace totally oblivious.

      In comparison, covering up the facts about Fukushima must seem child's play. That said, the power of the Internet and social media has changed the nature of information warfare. The truth is spreading.

      Sources like EneNews are one of the reasons.

      • We Not They Finally

        J., sorry to burst your (however well-meaning) bubble that "the physics of 9-11 were obvious." They were anything BUT obvious[!!], and you need to look up Dr. Judy Wood with her fantastic and detailed breakdown how this was COLD FUSION, NOT controlled demolition. If WTC7 was controlled demolition (and that MAY have been for 7, but not for 1 & 2), it was a mimic to misdirect people to the wrong conclusions. As was Steven Jones, who "helpfully" stepped in to offer "controlled demolition." Steven Jones' role was fiendish. He wasn't there to "help" — just to misdirect and divide. Wood gives the backdrop for that guy via his actual previous roles on the public stage.

        Sorry. But you must look up Dr. Judy Wood. We were THERE the day this happened. And this is all that ever rang true.

        • Are you familiar with her theory regarding the potential use of direct energy weapons ? Which would leave a "radioactive fingerprint" ? Just as the "mini nukes" that have been discussed in the conspirasphere* ?

      Sort of Like the willful ignorance surrounding the 9/11 Attacks, the Physics were known the first day, such as the jet fuel fires weren't hot enough to melt the steel, but something was hot enough?, the rate of descent was near free fall speed and WAS free fall in Building #7 for 2.5 seconds, the planes flying at ground level above 500 MPH was another Physic's ?, as was the planes entering the building's without first having the wings and even the rear of the fuselage break apart or crumple, yet somehow when the plane that hit the Pentagon impacted the wall they claim the wings and tail folded up neatly and entered a nice small hole?

      Also it is claimed that the technology to make some of the cell phone calls at high altitudes was not yet established, and there are many other physic's anomalies, as well as very strange coincidences and oddities that together make the occurences that day on the order of 10 billion to one or some crazy odds like that.

      Anyhow just as in Fukushima most of the public has their head in the sand and don't even understand basic high school physics except for the part where you can ward off the effects of the radiation by smiling, so I guess everyone should be smiling?

        Again, DR. JUDY WOOD. Building 7 might have been controlled demolition, but 1 & 2 were NOT.

        Check her out or you are missing the whole thing. And understand: "the planes" (or holograms of such) were A DISTRACTION, not what brought the buildings down. No plane cuts through a mighty skyscraper like butter! So you seem to have noticed that, but you STILL say that "the physics were known the first day"? They weren't. NOT AT ALL!

        Dr. Judy Wood. She explains why it could NOT have been controlled demolition. (7 who knows? But not 1 & 2.) Those building were "dustified," with no seismic impact and nearly no rubble.

        • J.

          WNTF writes "Again, DR. JUDY WOOD. Building 7 might have been controlled demolition, but 1 & 2 were NOT . . . " and more.

          This is shameful disinformation. Informed and thoughtful readers of enenews will recognize that WNTF have posted similar disinformation repeatedly. The facts about the WTC destruction are available for all those with the capacity to click a mouse. Start here:

          The notion that no planes hit the towers — holograms! — would be risible if it were not so utterly contemptible. Judy Wood and her ilk are disgraceful. The word 'dustfied' is meaningless, and I have elsewhere linked an interview that demonstrates Wood's bizarre, blithe, glib disregard for details, which she says don't really matter. Her perspective is weird and delusional — if she actually believes a word of it, which I very much doubt.

          Several thousand licensed, vetted architects and engineers are working tirelessly for a new investigation, based on facts. Disinformation promulgators will not succeed in distracting most of the populace, who can see through the absurd, unscientific distractions and sideshows.

          • J.

            This is important, so I'll add more: Enenews is a news aggregator that has attracted a lot of deservedly respectful attention, and of course some detractors as well. We all now live in an era of information warfare, and comments in this forum can enhance the creditability of Enenews, or give ammunition to detractors.

            The relevance of 9/11/2001 to the events of 3/11/2011 is that the information warfare and official lies about the events precede and parallel the information warfare and official lies preceding the latter. In both instances we see the efforts of disinformation promulgators to pollute serious discussion with nonsense. Some call this 'defecating in the well.' We see this in the comments on Enenews, sadly.

            The Internet has given us powerful tools to push such nonsense to the fringes, where it belongs. It cannot be eradicated, but it can be and has been repeatedly debunked. That will continue.

            Reiterating: what matters about 9/11/2001 is that NIST was forced, in public, to admit absolute free-fall acceleration in the WTC 7 'collapse,' yet NIST persists in the claim that 'ordinary office fires' caused the collapse. This is a fact.

            The official report is known to be fraudulent. That constitutes criminal malfeasance. It's an affront to the public. The lie has been exposed, and eventually those perpetuating the fraud will be held to account. This has to happen. The stakes are too high to permit the situation to go on as…

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            THere is the hope that WTC demolition information will be the keystone that brings down the criminal citadel.

            All details of the destruction are not compiled, although there is more than enough for proof of demolition. I dont totally discount the possibility of airborne or space based microwaves/ x-rays as a trigger mechanism. Check what happens, for example if one were to place beryllium targets around the structure then bombard with x-rays.

            Nano thermite also existed in large amounts. A complex sequenced ignition system could have been installed. So Judy Woods theories are not required in a scenario, yet she adds her observations, and all observations should be on the table. Her extreme views are a little unfortunate, but a true scientific mind is always open. I dont know why WNTF maintains the staunch adherence to Wood in this forum though, considering that this very subject has been talked about several times before.

      Four Ways The Ukraine Crisis Could Escalate To Use Of Nuclear Weapons

      "In 1983, the ABC television network broadcast a movie called The Day After about how a superpower nuclear exchange devastated the lives of typical Americans in two midwestern cities. The conflict began with a Russian troop buildup in Eastern Europe (which Moscow initially claimed to be a military exercise), and then gradually escalated to a point where both sides launched their nuclear missiles for fear of losing them in a preemptive attack. Coming as it did during a period of U.S.-Soviet tensions and controversy surrounding Reagan Administration nuclear policies, the broadcast attracted a huge audience of over 100 million viewers; it is still the highest rated made-for-television movie in U.S. history.

      Americans haven’t thought much about such scenarios since the Cold War ended, because the Soviet Union dissolved and the ideological rivalry between Washington and Moscow ceased. However, this year’s crisis over Ukraine is a reminder that Russia remains a nuclear superpower, and that the geopolitical sources of its security concerns have not vanished. "

        All foreign policy is now economic.

        The Ukrainian crisis is a scam. It's not a revolution because the Ukrainian army never fought the revolutionaries. It's not a war because the Ukrainian army army didn't fight the Russians in Crimea. It's not a civil war (yet) because you can count the total casualties thus far on two hands.

        About all that can be said about the situation in Ukraine is that it appears to be a scam by Anglo-Zionists, Billionaires, and NATO powers to trick the nazi-fascists of a weaker nation into decapitating itself, and then carve it up. All while East and West play a tag team of "good cop bad cop" while they pick the corpse clean.

        The scam is in place so the next nation on the menu won't wake up from the "matrix" and figure it out.

        The danger here is (1) whether the Russians take more than the other powers want them to have, or (2) whether the Ukrainians figure out that their prejudices have been used to trick them out of a nation and then they start fighting the Russians and/or NATO for real.

        Either way, we're a long, long way from WWIII.

          Alaska: You a basically correct. But, I do believe China, Iran and Russia feel they are under assault from an aggressive globalist fiscal empire.

          Any military exchange could quickly escalate. NATO and the USA have moved military assets forward to back up their recent seizure of the Ukraine into their sphere of influence and control. Errors and engagements could quickly spiral out of control to a point where one side or the other feels it needs to make a nuclear statement.

          The Ukraine is very similar to the former Yugoslavia. It is comprised of many ethnic minorities. The south and east peoples feel a much closer affinity towards Moscow than to Kiev (esp. since the ultra nationalist fascists in control there now). This ethnic affinity is both historical and ethnic based. The Ukraine was never a Black Sea littoral region before the Soviet regime took state power and cobbled together the Ukraine into an expanded region area of control – with much of the expansion in the south and east.

          We are getting gross propaganda on the history and what is occurring there from our Globalist media

          These minorities are going to resist Kiev and the Russians may feel compelled to aid them for manifold reasons – not the least, is the West's Neoliberal imperial expansion global agenda – like we are seeing in every other part of the globe.

He would have taken all the ethnic Russian regions, all the natural gas, and most of the agricultural "bread basket of europe". And that's what he's getting.

        "Operation Paperclip was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) program used to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany for employment by the United States in the aftermath of World War II. It was conducted by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), and in the context of the burgeoning Cold War. One purpose of Operation Paperclip was to deny German scientific expertise and knowledge to the Soviet Union[1] and the United Kingdom,[2] as well as inhibiting post-war Germany from redeveloping its military research capabilities.

        Although the JIOA's recruitment of German scientists began after the Allied victory in Europe on May 8, 1945, U.S. President Harry Truman did not formally order the execution of Operation Paperclip until August 1945. Truman's order expressly excluded anyone found "to have been a member of the Nazi Party, and more than a nominal participant in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazi militarism". However, those restrictions would have rendered ineligible most of the leading scientists the JIOA had identified for recruitment, among them rocket scientists Wernher von Braun, Kurt H. Debus and Arthur Rudolph, and the physician Hubertus Strughold, each earlier classified as a "menace to the security of the Allied Forces".

            The intelligence community does not create policy, they execute it, while acting as information "water-boys" for the real policy makers: the "shadow government" that moves between positions as state-actors in administrations and non-state-actors in banking and big business.

            Justifying and rationalizing what they are doing or not doing in order to keep themselves and their people motivated is a challenge that often gets the best of them, I'm afraid. Making it very difficult to track when there is a real divide between the policy makers and the people executing policy, and when that apparent divide is just a motivational tool to keep the troops in line.

            For example, the divide between the media owners crapping on "their own" NSA? For example, government operators abandoning one of the "shadow government" appointed Ambassadors to die in a burning building in Benghazi? For example, those bloggers who point their finger solely at the CIA?

              Not really. Everyone is "in bed with" everyone else. Look at Bush Sr. Once head of CIA, and fantastically wealthy out of criminally-run U.S. policies. And Cheney told the C.I.A. what to do all through THOSE years and he himself was installed by Bush Sr.

              The problem is that we do NOT have protective separations. Like the C.I.A. and the banking interests (for example) are "separate"? Not so. And certainly, not everyone running the government is sitting behind a government desk. Not hardly!!

          dr, pu239, important information to keep us aware of who these people really are and the very real secret government that controls US from the shadows.

          Operation Paperclip got its name because of the huge piles of paperwork with paperclips on them associated with this project. It was very much secret from the American people who would
          have been appalled that our government was giving American citizenship to the Nazi elite we had just "defeated".

          The concentration camp or KZ first appeared at Dachau in 1933, but under the Nazis, 50 more were established.
          (The Last Nazi, The Life And Times of Dr. Joseph Mengele by Gerald Astor, pg 34 –
          "At first the camps held alleged political leftists, particularly communists, clergymen who voiced opposition, editors whos papers were perceived as anti-Nazi and a group lumped together as undesirables. These included homosexuals and some common criminals. In the beginning Jews as a group were not indiscriminately thrown into concentration camps.
          An SS thug named Theodor Eicke was commissioned as the first inspector of the KZs. He instilled a twisted esprit de corps. Recruits to the staff underwent a series of humiliations and physical hazings. Eicke forced them to watch floggings and tortures of prisoners. Any sign of compassion or revulsion was considered a dereliction of duty. he created a new insignia, the
          Totenkopfverband, the skull and crossed bones. KZ guardians proudly labeled themselves members of Death's…

            (cont, pg 34, The Last Nazi, Gerald Astor)
            KZ guardians proudly labeled themselves members of Death's Head units. Eicke and his cadre trained the men to accept merciless treatment of prisoners as evidence of high devotion to the cause. The guards, though, were also taught that however brutally they behaved their acts should bear a surface legality. Discipline and professionalism were to be hallmarks of KZ warders.
            (pg 35) Eicke decreed hanging for anyone who "politicizes, holds inciting speeches and meetings, forms cliques, loiters around with others, who for the purpose of supplying the propaganda of the opposition with atrocity stories, collects true or false information about the concentration camp, receives such information, buries it, talks about it to others, smuggles it out of the camp into the hands of foreign visitors."

              Thank you for Operation Paperclip info. It's basic knowledge to understanding secret government and it's widespread destructive mis-use.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

      It would cost a huge amount more than that, and wouldn't be successful. There are more nuclear power plants in trouble–not just Fukushima Daiichi. And how much will it cost to evacuate Tokyo and the entire West Coast of North America, etc.

      And everyone around the world has been breathing the hot particles of plutonium. No way to get them out of the body. There is going to be no way to pay all the health care costs, no way to create oxygen as the plankton dies off, no way to grown food that hasn't been contaminated with radionuclides.

    The time to throw a million people at this was around 3/15/11. What boggles my mind the most is people's inability to understand what a triple melt-out (and through) ON THE FUCKING BEACH can do to the global biosphere.

    We're dealing with an "end-game level" situation, and all world govt's at this point are complicit. There's been an equivalent of a medium to large scale nuclear war's worth of radiation released unto the world. Be pissed. Bother your governor, senator, representative, mayor….anyone about this.

    The problem is, is that they don't want the societal change that is required to deal with this problem- it's do or die at this point.

      Bf9, that is why we need to do more than just comment in these forums.

      Just commenting in these forums keeps this information in a closed loop.

      Get the message out there on how serious the Fukushima nuclear disaster is
      quickly, and efficiently. You don’t need to explain anything just distribute the lifesaver.pdf or create your own, hand it out, mailbox it, Facebook it, Twitter it, or email it. Think outside the box, put it on public notice boards, hand it out to people, or put it into letter boxes when you go for a walk.

      The more people we educate the sooner change will happen.

      Or use these resources Chemfood has provided. All you need is a printer, scissors, some thumb tacks and … viola! We all are info dispersers as well! Put them on notice boards everywhere in the community. Get your local church or community organisation to help.

    Uprates of its existing nuclear power reactors has helped Exelon meet its self-imposed greenhouse gas emissions target seven years earlier than planned. The utility has called on US policymakers to recognize nuclear's role in meeting the country's emission reduction goals.

    We have no hope of humans phasing out nuclear whilst the climate change alarmists control the debate.

    Somehow, we have to kindle a social media fire that snuffs out the drone of carbon being the enemy. The decaying atomic crap is the biggest threat to our earth. The hell with climate change.

    • Sadbuttrue Sadbuttrue

      Definitely agree with you on getting the masses educated and passionate about what's happening. We have the power to make change. I read this the other day (from CNN of all places!) I'm trying to be hopeful that the tide is turning, that nuclear is on the way out. But we still have to deal with the atomic waste generated until that happens. Climate change doesn't seem as big a deal now to me, at least we could try to adapt but thanks to the nuclear industry and the damage they've done so far, it all seems so hopeless 🙁

      • We Not They Finally

        But nuclear destroys the ozone layer, acidifies the oceans, kills the plankton which gives us oxygen. So ironically, climate change becomes an even BIGGER deal. It's just the CO2 red herring that needs to be dismantled.

    • wa6smn wa6smn

      Carbon dioxide was the boogieman selected by the anti-human collectivists as a tool to control access to cheap fossil fuels as energy sources. The impact on the "greenhouse effect" is logarithmic with respect to concentration and only in the absence of water vapor. Cutting off access to oil and coal condemns the human race to death by famine and freezing. It limits your freedom to travel. The single most important controller of climate is the sun…and no legislation is going to change that. Increased volcanic activity is filling the air with particulates that are cooling the planet and disrupting wind patterns. Legislation won't change the volcanoes either. The change coming is an ice age.

      • Agreed, lets hope its a mini one. The sun is indeed acting strange. All we need is some crop destroying cold and storms 2 or 3 years in a row, and then a few CME blasts. 80% population reduction.

      • jimbob jimbob

        There are no longer any cheap fossil fuels, the Mid East is running out of cheap, sweet crude, they all exaggerate their reserves.

        North American reserves are growing but that is heavy oil and fracked natural gas and oil from shale reserves and that process destroys ground water.

        For this reason there is a growing movement to ban fracking.

        We all know the dangers of offshore drilling, see the BP blowout in the Gulf of Mexico and it was not even the first one, there was at least one more in Mexican waters, sorry no link. (I believe it was something called Manaconda, don't care enough to look.)

        By shutting off unneeded lights and unplugging all power cords of electronics not being used my wife and I reduced our hydro bill by 20% even as hydro rates were increasing here in BC. We have electric heat so our hydro is quite expensive.

        Many people do not know this but phone chargers etc. draw power even when not charging, they are known as current vampires.

        The only time I plug my laptop in is when I am using it extensively or it warns me my battery is low.

        All electronic devices should be unplugged when not in use.

        It takes a fair bit of power to run the clocks on your microwave and coffee pot when you are not using them.

        Everything that has a red light showing power is off should be unplugged when not in use, yes it will take a few seconds to warm up when you want to use it but really what is the big deal.

        Sorry to come off so preachy here

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

      The nuclear industry is creating climate change. No way to turn off radioactive decay and the heat it produces.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

      In the whole nuclear fuel cycle, nuclear energy suing fossil fuels to mine and process the fuel and to transport the nuclear fuel and to store the nuclear fuel. Nuclear energy is producing great amounts of CO2. To say otherwise is just flat out lying. Nuclear energy is to produced plutonium for weapons and to get huge subsidies from the government and to rip off money from the taxpayers and to exert choking power over everyone. To use climate change as a reason for nuclear is the greatest fraud. Nuclear energy and nuclear waste is also causing climate change from the heat of radioactive decay which will last and keep increasing for a million years. All these liars should be jailed immediately and toss away the key.

    How about an atomic tax?

    We all hear the endless drivel about the NEED for a carbon tax (Carbon Credits = Wall Street's brainchild!), why not an international tax on all things nuclear?

    You want to build a bomb? Okay pay a tax. You want to build a nuclear power plant? Okay pay a tax. You want to store nuclear waste? Okay, pay a tax.

    Obviously, this is wishful thinking on my part. But we have to at least start having a very real debate about our love for weapons and electrical generation that requires decaying atoms.

    In a sense, the Fukushima Fiasco has a chance at actually getting humans to begin to look in the mirror and become VERY afraid of what we hath wrought.

    To all you social media wizards out there…..light the fire of truth and send the message of nuclear idiocy to the far corners of the earth.

    The time is now.

    • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

      Excellent thoughts, but I am afraid everything is set up as a socialized loss scam and this new tax will simply be passed onto the rate/tax payers who are already being scammed 24/7.

      It is all an never ending conspiratorial scam loop.. 🙁

      Which will always point right back to Kansas and the Wizard I am afraid can't save any of us in the future….. 🙁 Like pay it forward.. they will simply.. charge it forward. This was the initial design from the get go..

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

      Just make the owners responsible, not the taxpayers. Make the owners pay for all the insurance needed (astronomical amounts), grant no subsidies to any nuclear power plant.

      • jimbob jimbob

        No insurer in their right mind would insure a NPP no mater how high the premium.

        The liability is just too enormous, can you imagine if Lloyds of London had insured Tepco in the event of a failure they would be bankrupt by now!

        Of course they probably would have provisions excluding flooding acts of god or radiological events as most homeowners policies have so they would be laughing all the way to the bank as the citizens of Japan wold have to foot the bill.

        Same as it ever was same as it will ever be, the elite get off Scott free and us suckers get it up the you know what.

      • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

        Of course that would be nice, but this is not reality and/or how anything has been set up legally, and yes, any loss cost is passed directly onto the rate/taxpayer at all times. This was the Nuclear conspiratorial scam loop from the get go.

        Those we have elected, who write our laws, have done this to us all… 🙁

  • One last question: Who the hell is this mysterious Mrs Pandora everybody seems to be talking about lately ? And why is everyone so much interested in the contents of her jewel case ? I find this highly suspicious. As she apparently knows more than she admits, maybe someone should interrogate her and try to reveal her secret ?

    [Please simply ignore this childish outbreak of mine. The latest events may possibly have pushed my brains over the cliff. I will now reboot and perform a power-on self test in order to get a damage report.]

    Christopher Hobson: ''A much better approach would be for Tepco to be more up front and honest in explaining the situation at the plant…''
    But then Hobson says:
    ''Decommissioning of the plant is expected to take 30 to 40 years…''

    But there's no reason to wait for Tepco to set the record straight, or to give any weight to their timeline. Anyone is at liberty to publish their version of what really happened three years ago, what's really happening now, and how long it will really take to ''decommission'', whatever that means. Hint: there's a large credibility gap between 40 years and never.

  • rogerthat

    … telling the truth is not Tepco's problem. If they follow the example of their own Prime Minister, they will continue to lie until the cows come home. Their own Prime Minister has told the world radioactive water is not flowing into the ocean. The International Olympic Committee appears happy to accept this fantasy, and Tepco is bound to do its best to maintain this particular lie because they are now effectively owned by the government.
    The Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority knows what really happened, and is happening now. They are at liberty to tell the world, but that's not part of their job description. They, too, are owned by the government.
    The International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN, the World Health Organisation, other governments and nuclear regulators and scientists around the world, are at liberty to tell the world. But they, too, are owned.
    So give Tepco a break. They are doing their little best in a completely impossible situation. This little problem is, by some estimates, going to end up costing 10 trillion US dollars to ''fix'', whatever that means when something is basically unfixable. That's 10 times the total annual output of the Japanese economy. There isn't enough spare money in the world to fix this. So let's just pretend, and trust that Tepco refines its lying skills to the point that we can continue to cling to the only lifelines we have. Ignorance and hope. Without them we are lost.
