KPFA: Dr. Helen Caldicott threatened with death while in Japan for speaking about nuclear power — Students being charged with disturbing the peace for handing out flyers (AUDIO)

Published: March 20th, 2014 at 3:41 pm ET


KPFA Flashpoints, Mar. 10, 2014 (at 3:00 in):

Steve Zeltzer, reporting from Japan: We went to Osaka […] we were told there’s continuing repression. Activists here are being threatened, including Professor Shimoji who was arrested for handing out leaflets. The government is trying to suppress opposition to nuclear power by passing the secrecy law which just passed the parliament and also by intimidating antinuclear activists and saying they have to keep quiet. […] We also learned from Dr. Helen Caldicott that she was threatened. She spoke at a meeting in Kyoto on the 8th and it was reported at the meeting that she had been threatened by right-wingers with death for speaking out about the dangers of nuclear power.

KPFA Flashpoints, Mar. 11, 2014 (at 3:15 in):

Zeltzer: There were also students there from different universities that are reporting that they’re being repressed. They’re being charged with disturbing the peace for handing out flyers against the burning nuclear rubble and against nuclear power plants.

      Rather than dropping them into Mount Fuji, and polluting a place of natural beauty…

      Drop-kick them into Fukushima 1, 2 or 3. If they love nuclear power that much then it shouldn't be a problem for them.

    • Sickputer

      Tm2020…too kind a punishment. Staked on top of Unit 3 with no water would be much more poetic justice.

      Btw… I like that headline excerpt terminology: " the burning nuclear rubble"

      SP: It is indeed that. And the original designers are rubbish. Especially the ones who sliced down the cliff for Daiichi to make it easier for them to access the port. Too bad they weren't sunbathing when the tsunami breached the lowered defenses.

      The bad placement is just one of a tragic comedy of errors in building the Doomsday Complex.


      you're a nutter timemachine2020, but I'm with you on this one. Those who'd think they can harm her, should expect dire repercussions. And regardless of location, should any intentional harm come her way, any-and-all advocates of nuclear power will be seen as the guilty parties. Like Gram used to say, "If you can't stand the heat, get outta the kitchen!"

      • We Not They Finally

        Well, no one wants her to be "a martyr." She's a fabulous committed activist and one of the great people of this world. Just ironic that she doesn't believe in God. (Or maybe she just can't see evidence of it HERE.) If she were ranked on a spiritual scale, I imagine that she would be way "up there."

        Yeah, if anyone hurts Helen Caldicott, they would be hurting ME. I'd take it very personally.

  • ftlt

    Same here for folks that speak out about anything.

    The fascist are on the march globally = fact.

    The Libertarians are with them.


      libertarians, ftlt, are far from supporting the globalist agenda. Now, had you mentioned Liberals and Neo-Conservatives, you get no argument from me…

      • We Not They Finally

        Hey guys, you've got to scratch some of that off these days. Like liberals who genuinely believe in the public good, barely have any place to go these days. And libertarians (though I really cannot find their self-interest "patriotic") have, many of them, been surprisingly GOOD about looking into Fukushima. I just get upset when they start teaming up with neo-Nazis, or think that private gun arsenals are what "freedom" is all about.

        But that all said, we need to build HUMANE coalitions wherever we can find them. Stick with anti-nuclear. We seem to have few enough people to coalesce with to begin with. To our public shame.

        • This is not about politics, or which political group is to blame.

          The deeper problem is the corporate take over of politics.

          The solution is voting only for candidates that take no corporate money.

          Further than that, it is also about looking inside and fostering a consciousness of peace, oneness, love and harmony..

          After all, the whole nuclear industry is built on war, violence, fear and separation, plus ego. There is nothing spiritual about nuclear anything.

      • ftlt

        After: American Libertarians are revisionist reactionaries that support "private property" above all else – it is their "Political God". Their movement is tied to the far right and racist thought – that cannot be denied. Don't believe all their rhetoric, you read – it does not add up. Look at where they live politically; who they bond with and what they combine to vote on in terms of priorities. It is not pretty.

        They are not a viable part of the environmental movement.

        • Bones Bones

          If you understood what is meant by the private property thing you are talking about, as a Libertarian the point is that Japan is destroying our private property. That is how it works. If one pollutes a river upstream, they are destroying private property downstream. Please, continue to be ignorant and continue to vote the parties into power that are doing exactly what you don't want. lol Amazing…

          • clamshellernh clamshellernh

            The three party system is a joke period and participating in the charade is such

          • mairs mairs

            Private property to a libertarian also means to be able to do whatever you want with your property, and I don't see anywhere in their philosophy that people who don't own property have any rights at all.


          when one abandons the precepts of self-determinism (central thesis to Libertarian philosophy), we are only left with the edicts of those who'd pretend interest in the welfare of the people. The National Socialists were only too happy to meld racist ideology with their goals of centralized control. They were not Libertarians. The newly formed Federalist (under Andrew Jackson) expanded their racist expropriation of Indian lands. They were not Libertarians. Prior to the arrival of Europeans to the Americas, those same Indians fought incessant – bloody wars – over their claims of regional lands. They were not Libertarians. Ask any Palestinian or Zionist how important land is to the survival of their people. As far as I know, they're not sporting Libertarian ideas of self-determinism.

          One must inquire into the welfare of those who've been prevented from having property rights, to realize the grinding – endless – poverty for having been kept so repressed. Fact is, the NWO is big on removing property rights from the commoner, whilst expanding control over those very same resources!

          I have no confusion to who's been, and continues to be, the cause of so much suffering in our world. It's surely not the individual who dreams of self-sufficiency. I celebrate those who work the soil of their own land, produce their own renewable energy and laugh at those who think Big Brother has any of their interests at heart…

          • Nice, built the greenhouse yesterday, setting up PV panels today….


              which is my point, stock. Nature has always imposed self-determinism on all life forms. We can look out for each other, but such concern for others must never be imposed upon us.

              Had to abandon my pedal-power project. It was a bummer having to do so. Turns-out, tests of the generator I was using required far to much torque (pedaling power) on the the rider. I lost some money on the prerequisite components and a lot of time on the CAD modeling of what would be required for the completion of the final design. I'll be moving on to 'specing the PV power source, now. In the interim, I'm thinking of incorporating a low wattage (<1K) LP powered generator, into the mix. Far more safe than managing gasoline and far less polluting.

              Stay in the light bro…

                180 watts minus efficiency from pedal power, but would make an athlete. Eating bananas is required to keep the energy up. A couple of meters of solar is the same and without the banana expense and dreaded radiation danger, plus it generates all day. Correa at aetherometry demonstrated a 24 hour sterling engine from a Reich orgone accumulator. In reality just another solar engine.


                  Looked into the Sterling engines, Code, and couldn't find any off-the-shelf solutions. I'm open to adding such approaches to the mix. I only need the means to reliably trickle-charge a 12V system, each day. My needs are humble…

                  • Sterling engines are neat for a number of reasons:
                    – they only need a difference in temperature to run
                    – their design is extremely scalale from tiny to pretty large
                    I imagine with a sufficiently extensive market research you should be able to find a device for pretty much any application ?

          • No indigenous tribe or nation is perfect. But they existed for tens of thousands of years, without destroying anything, without creating nuclear waste, without creating polluted water, air, ground and oceans.

            Maybe we can learn something from them, and their focus on seven future generations?

                    all of us, Heart, have inherited a history that's become a part of our collective behavior. It was either through force or personal gain that we've become compromised. I'll not fault anyone for their past foibles, but rather hold them accountable for refusing the correct path. That applies to nukers and pot-heads too. We've no other choice. Nature will allow for no more excuses. This applies to those on high, as well as the rest of us. To use the vernacular of the street, "The jig is up!" We're now totally fucked.

                    If my brothers and sisters of the Indian peoples are willing to lay down the rules and declare a new path, I'm totally open to their words. They've only to go on record to what they feel needs doing, and I'm there. (I'd ask that people refrain from pointing me to prior statements. I've read and acknowledge their wisdom.) I'm now asking that a council be formed to address our current situation. I'd ask that the results of that council's conclusions be submitted for consideration by the peoples of the world. I'm not interested in further consideration of Left/Right philosophies, as they only facilitate exploitation. I want to know what my brothers and sisters of the Indian nations feel is our best strategy. It may take time and it's likely to result in much contention with my own personal take on things; yet, I sense that this long silent group of humanity is ready to talk…


              agreed Goodheart. Had we the sense to listen, we could've learned so-much-more from them. Early Europeans had benefited greatly, both politically (our very constitution was essentially sourced from the American Indians) and ecologically (early on, Europeans learned many survival techniques), from American Indians. Unfortunately for American Indians and the European commoners, intervention by banking interests began to 'color' the policies towards Indians. The European commoner was ultimately as much a victim as their brother Indians. Difference is, as it is today, when one is floundering in a sea of poverty, they're apt to ignore the fact that someone else is being used as a flotation device…

  • m a x l i

    Maybe those students should produce and hand out flyers, where they deliver irrefutable facts about nuclear power plants (for instance information about fission products and their effects on biological entities) and refrain from directly stating if they are 'for' or 'against'.

    Other strategy: They could, when handing out their anti-nuclear flyers, make a second group of students standing there nearby – outwardly appearing to hand out PRO-nuclear flyers (flyers which should be recognised as a satire by anyone with half a brain reading it carefully) in order to see if those bogus pro-nuclear students get arrested for disturbing the peace, too.

    • We Not They Finally

      Creative. But it was probably a huge effort just to get the students out there at all, with the repressive new laws.

      It's just gets galling beyond tolerability when you think that some simple peaceful leaflet is the only recourse to say, don't just kill us off with no one even knowing how or why. It's hardly just politics — it's their very lives. The people stopping even this are monsters.

    • wildandfree wildandfree

      IMHO, and based on my experience, when that kind of detail that Maxli suggests and as such the detail that is really needed to provide an understanding beyond the perception of a rant, most people "glaze over" unable to concentrate on a technical subject at any length. I get turned off when I even approach the details needed, while also "turned off" because of an oncoming rant, in their anticipated rant alert system. I have yet to find a balance although I sometimes consider comic books an alternative where everyone dies in the story (but that hard on the next issue, but so is reality). We just have to keep trying I think.

      I think also that our infrastructure is not being invested in because the fascists don't want public money spent on the public. They want to funnel it to the wealthy, through wars that enrich the defense industry and further the aims of the fossil fuel industries. That's why fascists push for tar sands pipelines but won't spend anything on ordinary infrastructure that would help everyone. They are the cuckoo bird egg being laid in another bird's nest, and the hatched cuckoo chick pushes the other babies out of the nest to their deaths.

  • Dollars circulate idea.

    My advise is when they no longer allow people 'free speech' via flyers then it's time to start stamping the message on the back of every dollar bill (yen) and on the statement for every power bill.

    I know what your going to say. It's illegal to deface currency, but honestly, I've never heard of anyone going to jail for that and besides how are they going to catch you.

      Dr. Good and bo, I have become almost a hermit because I can't keep quiet, and my friends and family have said they don't want to know anymore "stuff about radiation." They believe the government protects us, and they would tell us the truth. One person I know started screaming at me about Fukushima, saying she didn't want to know because she lives on the coast and likes sushi; she actually said she would rather not know because she thinks knowing is what makes you get sick.

      bo, according to a study ‘Conspiracy theorists’ are sane; and government dupes are the crazy, hostile ones.

      • bo bo

        I know NBO…one thing I have to say though is ever since I've been here talking to others about fuku here I have a stronger attitude about it -now when those around me try to peg me as crazy, I don't let them. Of course, I'll shut up, and stop the discussion – but never ever question my sanity anymore. I remember when I first joined all my posts ended with 'am I going crazy…? Tell me I'm not going insane…!' I used to be so unsure of my sanity.

        I also used to feel so alone.. now I don't really care that much about not being able to connect. I've told my friends my message 'if in the future if you ever wanted to know more or discuss about it, I am here.' In the meantime I'd rather not have people around me than having to pretend like I connect.

        Interesting read, newsblackout, thanks! Interesting how the writer sticks to using the labels "conspiracy theorist" and "anti-conspirasist" in the traditional way, while explaining very nicely that it is at least doubtful who is who; furthermore it is even rather the other way around. In my opinion, better labels for the two opposing sides would be "thinkers" and "conformists".

        I know exactly how yall feel. I don't have tv or WiFi and I sometimes wonder if people are being hypnotized. Every time I mention fukushima its the same thing. Eyes glaze over, they grow distant, they don't want to talk about it. They call me crazy and a conspiracy theorist and Debbydowner. You dont know what your talking about. If it was true they would tell us. They don't want to know and I don't blame them. Denial is a coping mechanism. The horrors of nuclear are too vast to wrap your head around. We are all victims of the double life and psychic numbing. Separated from nature, separated from each other,separated in ourselves carrying on in silent desperation. I wish I could pick the earth up.

        • I can recall in the late 70's, maybe early 80's, watching a PBS program that caught my attention in an odd way.

          The show had a scientist guy in a white jacket who stated that this was a 'live' TV show an they were doing an experiment in ESP with the viewing audience.
          (esp, mind reading)

          I thought to myself. Hey, this interesting, I get to be part of an experiment.

          He then displayed 3 cards with symbols of a circle, a square and a triangle.

          He said he was thinking of one of the symbols and for the audience to concentrate on what he was thinking.

          So I tried. It was strange. I immediately thought "triangle". It was very clear. I shouted it out and wrote it down. "Triangle" no doubt!

          The scientist guy then said, "You were thinking TRIANGLE."

          OMG, I was convinced I had the power of ESP. This is amazing I thought.

          Then, the scientist guy admitted that this was not a live TV show that was indeed prerecorded and that a subliminal message had been used to make the audience think "TRIANGLE".

          It was not an esp experiment, but a mind control one.

          They then showed the scientist guy talking about the 3 cards in super-duper slow motion. In the upper right corner of the screen was a very fast flash almost unseen (even in slo-mo) of a triangle.

          "Uh oh!", I thought, "this is not good."

          TURN OFF the TV or your thoughts will not be free.

            +10000000000. I'm sure there are subliminal messages in movies also. When they used to have drive-in movie theaters, they would use subliminal messages to get people to buy popcorn, etc. I'm sure they still use subliminal messages to get people to buy all sorts of things.

            If the air waves were free, they wouldn't be able to sell air time to advertisers, political campaigners, etc.

            There are messages in books also. But the messages are out in the open and you are aware of them and can oppose them rationally.

              The silliest argument I saw on this website was the argument over aliens, which I have never seen and will never believe exist without seeing them. But then I never watched Star Trek on TV or in movies. I did watch part of Star Trek a couple of times on TV. It was obviously a mind control to change cultural values, as are Monday night football, etc. Cultural identity from TV is just for someone to make money and to establish corporate and corporate controlled governmental control.

      Biblical proportions! We are already there. Just look at the rest of the things happening in the world that are unrelated the the radiation events – we are already there.
      Compare them with the events of the second and third trumpet events in the book of Revelation – we are already there.

                  Sorry Heart of the Rose, I didn't mean to get you fired up. I would not say that any one social class caused the events of Revelation to come upon us. I would say it was all of us from the beginning — except for one. People are people, are people, are people. We are not so good as you already know. The facts, though, are that the current world events fit exactly, to the 'T' with the end-time events in Revelation more than they ever have. Only God knows for sure, and mankind has been saying for a long time, "The end is near." I wouldn't blame it on anyone; it's going to happen just as it was foretold from ancient times.

                      Thanks VanneV. I don't want to go on their spaceship anyway. I'd rather go to heaven. It boggles my mind when I see seemingly intelligent people who know a lot about many very difficult subjects and yet know nothing or very little of the most important Truth and refuse to learn anything about Him. Perhaps we will benefit here by not casting our pearls….Maybe they will do their due diligence and look that up for themselves. It would be a good start.

                      as you're apparently new here, 2ndTrumpet, I'd advise serious consideration of who you align yourself with.

                      There are (literally) tens-of-thousands who are reading your words. While that offers a wonderful opportunity for exchange with like-minded individuals, assuming such can result in marginalization. Exhibiting condescension towards your readers, guarantees of a dismal reception of what you'd bring to the table.

                      Show respect but equally avoid those who'd use others as means of realizing their own ends. Before lending overt support, study not just what someone says but what they actually do. To use an old adage, the devil comes in many forms…

                    • AFTERSHOCK AFTERSHOCK

                      much appreciated, Heart. I humbly attribute my 'craft' to that which bestows such gift upon those who defend her creation. Without her grace, I am but another empty vessel. I await her intuitive guidance, before taking any action. I ask nothing more than the honor of being but one of her many dedicated servants. My greatest fear can only be realized, should I ever fall short of her expectations. I once took her boundless love for granted. She understood my need to think I knew better than her. It is the curse of man to think he's more than his creator. While she encourages such challenge, I'll not make that error in judgement, again. I now know, she is the foundation upon which all is explored. I am awed by her patient love and hope she's not offended by the effusive words of this lone servant…

                      not to be disparaging VanneV, but I sense you need to take a long walk. I don't want to be unnecessarily critical. I just can't help but notice these references to people conspiring against you. It's all beginning to ring of instability.

                      To date, I've refrained from being too severe in our recent exchanges. I understand that you're getting on in your years and aren't in the best of health. Such physical conditions can lead to interpretive errors in both judgement and presentation. So's not to find myself embroiled in the perceived abuse of the aged and sickly, I'd appreciate your adhering to that prior statement on March 17th [see below] that you'll not read (and subsequently, respond) any further to my posts. Until today, at the conclusion of that thread, I've graciously avoided all subsequent contact with your persons. I have responded to your latest comments, as I've every right to defend myself from online harassment and character attacks.

                      Unless you think you've some right to control my comments out here, I'd appreciate your going about your own business. Should you insist on pursuing this, I'll have no other recourse than to elicit admin's learned intervention…

                      Someone should've informed you, pulling down intervening posts is not evidence of who contacted whom. You have to go back to the top of the thread.

                      So, regardless what you'd have others believe, after declaring you had no further interest in doing so, you – did – initiate contact.

Unfortunately, most everyone, these days, have been psyched-out by those who want us to have low expectations. We've come to expect the worst. Can't say too much, except that the outcome is not so dark. It eventually dawns on the major players that they've run out of rope. They've decided to pull-out the stops but can't inform us outright, for fear of creating uncontrollable social instability. Most get left behind while a select few are called upon to put their shoulders behind what needs doing. They barely succeed in making the crossing.

                      “that's why I referred you to the Gattaca movie. If you haven't seen, do so. It deals with some interesting issues; one of which is how society uses genetic testing to determine who qualifies for going off-world. Of course, that will be only once set of criteria. Mental acuity and physical condition would also come into play. Down the road, when conditions become more amenable to the aged and handicapped (while he won't be around by then, think Hawkins), you can lower the standards as to who can and can't be allowed off-world.
                      “As to whether it's acceptable to facilitate the going-forth of humans, several tempering factors will come into play. First, you have to cooperate like your life depended on it, because it will. Then there's the isolation, which compels a sense of appreciation of others. And of course, there are the distances that must be overcome if you're to make efficient use of available resources. You'd be surprised what's there for the grabbing. Problem is, it's spread far and wide. Developing the infrastructure to take advantage of all those resources is the killer. That's why I mention the covered wagon thing. It'll be long and hard for the first few hundred years. Strange thing is, you come to think of it as living on an island-prairie. The mind and spirit is transformed…”

                      nowhere, VanneV, is there mention of going to other galaxies. Again, you attempt to confuse the reader. BTW, humans are and have been out in Space. Unlike some who'd make promises of residing in heaven, the aerospace community is there. It only remains a matter of constructing a large-enough bridge for the rest of us.

                      It's likely others have already informed you, posting a series of prior commentary is not an argument. Again, there's no mention of going to other galaxies. However, it is evidence of a sneaky character to attempt to make it so.

                      As it's evident you have nothing to back your claims that I want to take non-Christians to another galaxy, I'd ask that you answer my other inquiry into your statement that threats have been made. While your answer's sure to take the form of additional incongruities, I must confess that I do-so enjoy watching these panicked attempts.

                      Appreciate your highlighting that series of posts. Won't say how or why, except that you're efforts are very helpful. BTW, I retired to bed soon after mentioning Gattaca, only to discover it was being rebroadcast on late-night TV! You'd be surprised to discover what's at play about you, when-and-if you're willing to observe.

                      you've clearly lost it, VanneV. And just so you know, if-and-when one finds themselves being unduly harassed, they've every right to bring it to the attention of the site's administration. Again VanneV, you have nothing to support your allegations that you were threatened.

                      And just so you know, I'm maintaining a complete offline record of our exchange. Admin's likely to remove this entire dialog, as it's clearly in violation of the site's posting protocol. Just the same, as you seem set on harassing me, I want a record of your exact words. It's important that others have an opportunity to see just what you're about, and not what you'd claim to be about…

                      quite seriously, Heart, you and a handful of others represent the best of the species. Some are simply upset they're not lavished with the same adoration and respect, as I've shown towards others. Even with their sycophantic followers and dupes trailing behind, they're quietly enraged that I've not fallen at their feet. You, on the other hand, have long proven your strength of character. And while you may not know it (now), being loved by 'me' is of great value…

                      I agree with you clamshellernh, "organized religion is just a way of control"

                      It's unnerving seeing the PTB align and set up their activities to make people think that Revelations and the Gospel is playing out before their eyes – so people will blindly (faithfully) accept what is happening.

                      I'd guess the 'earth noises' people have been hearing are probably cloaked military air craft that are testing out this piece of equipment to either deafen a population or control them. I'd imagine the sound of trumpets from the sky would make any believer convinced the end as predicted is upon us. And then there are the holograms. Science and technology are amazing!

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

        I agree with you. Helen Caldicott doesn't believe in God, so her statement was a metaphor. Whe should have evacuated south already. But Australia isn't safe because the radiation from Fukushima has made such a huge hole in the ozone, Australians have much higher chances of get all kinds of skin cancer including melanoma. No place to hide.

        If TPTB were closing down all nuclear plants and never building any more there might be a chance of saving the earth. But their corruption doesn't allow them to pay attention to any warnings. Radiation has caused total insanity. The 21st century has not been able to learn anything from the 20th century catastrophic mistakes.

        And Fukushima is so much worse than Chernobyl. The next even worse disaster is just around the corner. The whole world is a ticking time bomb. And there seems to be no chance to change TPTB any place on earth.

        Using depleted uranium weapons are using dirty bombs continually with the same devasting effect as other nuclear weapons. Depleted uranium is a nuclear weapons, the worst weapons of mass destruction imaginable. That the world is not incensed by the use of depleted uranium weapons shows the devastation of mind control and propagande techniques.

        • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

          I was agreeing with 2nd trumpet. The ELEs have already occurred and too few people are trying to change the inevitable. Climate change is caused by nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants. And climate change is alternately frying the earth and flooding it.

          And the nuclearocrats are too corrupt to acknowledge what their technology is doing. The devastating storms are caused by Krypton-85 all caused by every stage of the nuclear power plant cycle.

            “Just because a person is or isn’t intelligent contributes nothing, not a thing, to the truth or falsity of any proposition (not related to the individual)….”

            Since 1945, the general intelligence of humanity is being degraded by radiation exposure which is rising exponentially.

        • Angela_R

          VanneV, I share your horror of the nuclear process, however Australia has had an ozone hole and high UV radiation for many years, though possibly exacerbated further by Fukushima. The South Pacific was exposed to Radiation by atomic tests conducted by a number of countries from the 1950's up until the 1990's. The effects were mainly from fallout which dispersed over a wide area.

          Like you, I am not in favour of thorium being used in the nuclear process.

          Though Australia has survived for a large measure on primary industry including mining, I believe that the majority of its people are very disturbed by the current raping and pillaging of the earth and to date, they have not supported the nuclear process's teasing and tormenting of elements.

          So far the Australian people have failed to accept the devil's curse in his current guise of nuclear energy.

        • Angela_R

          VanneV, Yes, Australia has the highest numbers of skin cancers. It is thought that even the fish are getting melanomas.

    Radiation Fears Are Real
    Posted on November 1, 2013
    To the Editor, New York Times:
    “David Ropeik, a specialist on risk perception and risk communication, plays down the mass of scientific and medical literature that amply demonstrates that ionizing radiation is a potent carcinogen and that no dose is low enough not to induce cancer.
    “Large areas of the world are becoming contaminated by long-lived nuclear elements secondary to catastrophic meltdowns: 40 percent of Europe from Chernobyl, and much of Japan.
    “A New York Academy of Sciences report from 2009 titled ‘Chernobyl’ estimates that nearly a million have already died from this catastrophe. In Japan, 10 million people reside in highly contaminated locations.
    “Children are 10 to 20 times more radiosensitive than adults, and fetuses thousands of times more so; women are more sensitive than men.
    “Radiation of the reproductive organs induces genetic mutations in the sperm and eggs, increasing the incidence of genetic diseases like diabetes, cystic fibrosis, hemochromatosis and thousands of others over future generations. Recessive mutations take up to 20 generations to be expressed.

    “Author and Pediatrician Helen Caldicott takes time out of her busy schedule to join me to discuss the unfolding events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in Japan. Fukushima was devastated by a massive earthquake on March 11, 2011 which led directly to a massive failure causing hydrogen explosions which blew the roof off of at least two of the reactor buildings. Tepco and the Japanese government have understated the radiation dangers and the dire reality of the situation from day one.

    “Helen says, at this point there is no ‘best case scenario’ for Fukushima, just worsening degrees of horror because it's scientifically impossible to clean up what has already occurred. And with thousands of spent fuel rods and thousands more active rods still in the fuel pools of the damaged reactor buildings, the worst case scenario – if another major earthquake hits the area – is an ecological nightmare of biblical proportions for everyone living in the Northern hemisphere.

Helen explains to us the horrific consequences we face as humanity if we continue using nuclear power, with its inevitable, irreversible damage to people and the planet, with Fukushima and its horrific repercussions, being a dire warning for what is to come.

      Dig out the root, without any violence. Go to the ROOT source of the problem.

      Bottom line, it is the MONEY behind the politicians that creates the problems. But if you get rid of one CEO, they are replaced by another.. because it is systemic and built in with consciousness.

      Solution? Vote.. and support elections plus campaigns with only public money, equal money for all candidates, even third party candidates.

      Then vote for only those who accept no corporate money.

      Everything can change with no violence, while addressing the ROOT causes, very quickly.

        I see it in a slightly different light Dr Goodheart. Money is not the root problem, rather its the inability of man to see and/or care about the extended consequences of his actions.

        If one is going to talk illusions, then the peace/violence duality is also born of viewpoint. There is no peaceful existence, as the immune system shows, as the biome of gut, land and sea shows. Knocking off invaders/ offenders is the theme of life across the living universe.

        One can work toward a harmonious civilization, and with a majority of humans on board with an open source, largely agrarian/vegetarian non profit trade model, the worst offenders and cartels would be diminished in power. But this wishful thinking is clearly not at all what is happening.

        This is not defeatist or even negative, but the fact is, "they" have already fracked, nuked, poisoned, exploited, killed the life of this planet. The public goes with it, by choice or default. These peaceful ideals are mere mental concepts not found in reality except by endeavoring to lift ones viewpoint to the trans-personal.

        The great white whale in Moby Dick fought back, and at least for a while, turned the tide against his exploiter. In the real story, some of the shipwrecked became cannibals. Macy's and Folgers are lasting legacies of the whaling era. The real story of material life includes constant battle

    The threat from "right wingers" is more than simply knee-jerk pro-business or even knee-jerk nationalism against a gaijin interloper. Besides the nuke vs. Anti-nuke energy divide, Japan has a large pacifist segment of their electorate, while simultaneously being on the verge of emerging as a regional superpower with deliverable nuclear weapons after the pivot (away from) Asia by the US. Undoubtedly TPTB in their military, government, nobility, and elites view that as a step up from Japan's current protectorate status. I'm certain they wouldn't want Fukushima or their own public reaction to hold up that transformation into a regional nuclear superpower.

    The establishment there only hears "I've got mine" when a foreigner from a nuclear superpower comes to talk sense.

The native Americans were here for thousands of years; the place remained a beautiful garden more or less. Perhaps it was European fascination with magic that put so much power behind science. One person referred to Newton as the last of the great magicians. The desire for power. Civilizations are hierarchic. Some have more power; some less. Some feel powerless. There is a struggle for power with civilization. USA vs Russia. Putin won. Obama is a sore loser. Obama wants more power. Etc. Arms races. Better bombs and missiles. Whatever it takes.

    Speaking of death threats and death I wonder at what point the powers that be will decide the ENEnews has caused enough dissent and trouble? Not only the gov but various corporations might take real offense at a web site where people make these outrageous claims about ionizing radiation. Well, in their opinion outrageous. They have the scientists under control as we have seen with their low levels, dilution, dispersion, nothing to worry about. So how dare these people put forth their ridiculous opinions? Good question. It usually comes as quite an unexpected surprise when the full force of the Power Elite comes to bear. After all if the USA will tear down whole nations, Ukraine being the latest one, they will hardly stop at some small nuisance in their own midst. Well, just a reflection.

        clam, I've learned from doing this a lot of years that the paranoia of being watcched far exceeds the reality of actually being watched. If you are actually doing something (v. merely posting, aka running your mouth) there might be some cause for concern.

        I am certain I've been followed, but it was directly related to a case or a pre-filing enviro campaign. It was no doubt investigators hired by the defendant. This is expected. So, if I'm meeting with a whistle blower, switch cars and burn phones are SOP.

  • I do think many of us had wondered if HC had been threatened. I mean, she abruptly changed her tune on nukes and on Fukushima, in particular. So that much was obvious. And if it is true that HC and others have been threatened, I wish those doing the harassing would consider: they, too, will die from this. And so will their children. Some say they don't care about their own children, but I have such a tough time with that concept, I think it is something else (money?) that keeps them working for the nuke projects.
    Perhaps it is pure hubris? After all, it takes a lot of hubris and not much intelligence or education, to believe nuclear reactors were ever safe and a good idea.
    So yeah; maybe it's just hubris.
    But hubris will not keep their children safe.

    The gall and immorality of these power holders is absolutely amazing. They can stand in front of a large crowd and tell the biggest fibs. And look the part of veriest truth. I can't even tell the people who call to sell me something a lie. Lies damage the mind. The exception would if I perceive a threat . . . there are justified falsehoods. But I doubt someone is holding a gun to their heads. To Obama's, yes. To Harry Reid's, of course. To a David Rockefeller, no. There are not many Stalin's. Or Mao's. So fear can inspire a lie. And the infernal craving for power and control. And there you have it. Nuclear power is an integral part of their plan. They need the bombs. They like the by-product. They don't feel threatened in the way that many here do.

    My take on occupy …I was with occupy thru and thru from beginning to end , no leaders does not work . Strong organizers fight . We were infiltrated , Christ we would have a ga for six hours arguing about a color to wear to a demo ..simple things were thought to death , egos ran riot . I am however glad to have been part of it many have went back to there communities with more strength ..but no for many many reasons it was doomed . I do not really think it could have ever taken over the powers that be . The model was too easily twisted , within. A week the facilitators knew how to get what they wanted by directing the flow . Sad ..but what it really did was open up discourse and that was the win . I have also made a lot of valuable connections and life long friends with the same goals . I am sure I left a lot out.

  • dodge

    Knowledge is power. Control of the media and truth is essential for any group in power. The disinformation distributed to society is what allows the money interests and power brokers to maintain their control. The popular and acceptable word is SPIN – and it is used in everything from advertising, public officials managing crisis, to families or churches explaining the difficult situations that arise in life. Makes a person rethink the significance of that old proverb – "you shall know the TRUTH and the TRUTH shall set you FREE. My frustration in this nuclear situation is that even knowing the truth – actually reversing this growing crisis is difficult. Certainly change in leadership (power brokers and their philosophy) is a necessary starting point, but it is obviously going to be a very difficult battle.

    • All of that 'control' is built on illusions, and is like building a house of cards. You can only build so long, and then the tiniest little thing makes it all go bye bye.. suddenly.

      This 'control' by the nuclear industry and the 1% can and will collapse suddenly one day, either by our choice and shifting paradigms or natural processes, like the FUKU mega disaster.

      We cannot fight against Nature and win, at least not for long.

    News to pay attention to:

    (Please learn to read between-the-lines of articles and ask “why”)

    Read these headlines and ask WHY is this really happening:

    >> Nuclear energy in Abu Dhabi (want to build 4 nuclear power plants)


    >> Two former Senators, one a Republican and one a Democrat, “are getting behind an industry-backed effort to raise the profile of nuclear energy and highlight the risks of closing power plants.”


    >> Hitachi is moving its rail business from Japan to the UK

    “The move is an unusual one for a Japanese company”


    • Yeah… WHY?

      "The Policy of the United Arab Emirates on the Evaluation and Potential Development of Peaceful Nuclear Energy, otherwise known as the Nuclear Policy, CONCLUDED that nuclear power emerged as a proven, environmentally promising and commercially competitive energy source compared to other options.

      The Nuclear Policy also emphasized the establishment of an independent, vigilant and effective regulatory body as being the cornerstone of a stable, credible, safe, and secure nuclear program."

      A culture of safety…

      Building 4 NPP's (side by side) on the beach. Obviously, they haven't learned anything from Fukushima except how to better manipulate the media.

      What Do I Do in a Nuclear Plant Emergency?

      "If an accident occurs at a nuclear power plant near you, stay calm and listen to your local television or radio stations for updates and instructions from your state and local officials."
      – NRC

      You may receive one or more alerts to warn you of the situation once protection actions are initiated:

      · Sirens
      · A tone alert on your radio
      · A route alert from emergency responders
      (the “Paul Revere” method)

      The public should not talk about violence. This is largely because the public is outgunned. Even peaceful people who attempt to grow their own gardens and drink raw milk (for example) can see the barrel of a policeman's gun.

When have the nuclear, agri biz, big pharma, big oil, big banker, land owner cartels been stronger?

    The crack down and arrests follow very quickly after this happens for any organization.. The mass media goes on a feeding frenzy for any violence or destruction ANYWHERE..

    The vast weapons waste.

    The electrical side's crap.


    How is the destruction of the biosphere NOT a violent act itself?

    • Agreed; that is the violence which = low consciousness, based on illusions, egos, and separation thinking. It is huge egos with extreme hubris thinking that control, force, threats, money and power have REAL meaning in the larger sense of that word.

      The 1% is committing violence against Nature, which is a battle the 1% cannot win, ever.

      We are seeing and witnessing the death spiral of that ego based violence which eats itself, and cannot do anything but kill all those involved with it. Ego = death when not harnessed properly, like an out of control horse and carriage with no driver.

      But there is also a birth happening, as part of a birth of consciousness. The birth is based on intuition, heart centered actions, Oneness, peace, harmony, and acting in accord for what works for seven future generations, using ego only as it is harnessed by the a 'higher power'. Like a horse controlled by a rider…

      Helen Caldicott points at it specifically…

    The worst form of Tyranny is the illusion of democracy. Japan is toast, and the western US is as well..

    What is to be done? Watch what you eat, No fish, No animal products, fruits and veggies from the southern hemisphere as well as only root vegetables. Greens rapidly absorb Caesium, so forget salads..
    I recommend CLAY..liquid Zeolite or Terramin..all from deep within the pulls the radionuclides out of our systems, i am a west coast refugee..i drink clay everyday, still..and it helps..some symptoms are short term memory loss, mixing up letters & numbers etc..
    we all need to unite against our repressive government..limit our own electricity usage and have the courage to say NO to Nuclear, for ever..

    Peaceful non violent protest, voting only for non corporate 1% funded politicians and civil disobedience are the keys to changing paradigms of monopolistic power and the 1% control..

    Violence only plants the seeds for more violence.

    The tree of violence contains the seeds for many more trees, and it only multiplies exponentially..

    The nuclear industry is a good example of the seeds of violence growing exponentially, and it all came out of a war..

      +100000000000 "it all came out of a war". Created by a psychopath (Oppenheimer) for use by psychopaths.

      We have to outlaw the use of depleted uranium also. It destroys the US by nuclear waste and nuclear power and the depleted uranium itself, and it destroys the countries attacked by depleted uranium and our own soldiers and their families. And they are putting the poison of depleted uranium in roads and golf clubs. And they want to put it in silverware, etc. The psychopaths have proposed nuclear energy is every car and every house. Radiation poisoning poisons the mind irreparably.
