Revealed: British government’s plan to play down Fukushima, Guardian, June 30, 2011:

British government officials approached nuclear companies to draw up a co-ordinated public relations strategy to play down the Fukushima nuclear accident just two days after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and before the extent of the radiation leak was known.

Internal emails seen by the Guardian show how the business and energy departments worked closely behind the scenes with the multinational companies EDF Energy, Areva and Westinghouse [...]

Officials stressed the importance of preventing the incident from undermining public support for nuclear power.

Here are a few revelations from the internal emails obtained by the Guardian:

  • A British official suggested that if companies sent in comments, they could be incorporated into government statements: “We need to all be working from the same material to get the message through to the media and the public.” Westinghouse said reported remarks by the deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, were “unhelpful and a little premature”.
  • A British official told Areva: “We need to quash any stories trying to compare this to Chernobyl.”
  • A British official wrote: “We need to ensure the anti-nuclear chaps and chapesses do not gain ground on this. We need to occupy the territory and hold it. We really need to show the safety of nuclear.”
  • There was a meeting where the aim was “to discuss a joint communications and engagement strategy aimed at ensuring we maintain confidence among the British public on the safety of nuclear power stations and nuclear new-build policy in light of recent events at the Fukushima nuclear power plant”.

The Reaction:

  • Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith: “The government has no business doing PR for the industry and it would be appalling if its departments have played down the impact of Fukushima.”
  • According to one former regulator, who preferred not to be named, the degree of collusion was “truly shocking”.

        During Electricity privitisation the Nuclear Stations were pulled out from that exercise and placed in state companies Scottish nuclear and nuclear Electric. Sometime later the government succeeded in privatising them by effectively removing from the stations the somewhat expensive porblem of what to do with the waste produced. Even so this privatised company went bust and had to be taken back over by the state. Finally the French appeared and got the lot for a song.

        The point is no one knows how much electiricity costs produced by a Nuclear Station as there have been loads of things done to hide the truth that it is the most expensive electricity in the world. Now I will agree that producing electricity by fossil fuels is not sustainable but I would like to see any financial proof that Nuclear is cheaper than renewables backed up by a massive expansion of pumped storage in this country.

            i could not resist adding this qoute from my comments on the discussion page on censorship (approx comment 130).. it might be worth bearing in mind that there are casualties like australian cannonball and alex as well as many frightened others..we know how they work this manipulation of the people and if we learn not to fear it and to fight it instead, i believe good people in influential places may be able to exact meaningful and effective change throughout our societies..i believe all people ultimately hold the same basic values…so what are THEY doing??

        Heres an interesting qoute from an article? Are resources available for censorship? 2 million lines read through by one department, in one country? Ok I think it might be possible!! So why don’t they just close everything down then?? Not because of the huge outcry that would happen I suppose.. looks like the corporations got to play to within some rules…interesting!!
        Spanish police this week arrested three suspected members of the Anonymous hacker group. Authorities revealed that they had trawled through more than 2,000,000 lines of chat logs and web pages leading up to the arrests.

    Shut down all the reactors while there is time, take over BP for the damages int he gulf, arrest everyone involved in that illegal drilling operation. That sounds like the proper public response to me.

            Whoopie, I’ve been lurking here for weeks, greatly appreciating your and others’ insights, links and comments. This has been a font of truth and information in a desert of corporate spin and government lies.
            Your post above has finally prompted me to register and reply.
            Your statement: I feel all sick inside, that a gov would do this to it’s OWN PEOPLE!!
            reminded me of the first time I realized that WTC Building 7 was not brought down by a simple diesel fire and the Twin Towers could not have been brought down by a simple fuel fire. And the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City could not have been destroyed to that extent by a Ammonium-Nitrate-Fuel-Oil bomb, (testified to by a U.S. Army Ordinance general)…
            Whoopie, welcome to the other side. I have friends who see and understand the truth but refuse to accept it because they are afraid of what the acknowledgement of the truth will do to their minds. I don’t blame them. My paradigm of political and social reality was totally rocked years ago. Now I am functional but will never be the same.
            What’s happening in Fuku and what happened on 9/11 and everything else falls into place once your paradigm has been re-adjusted. If you can use some support while yours is being readjusted, just let me know.

        Abstract

        There has been public concern about children’s intellectual performance at high levels of fluoride exposure, but few studies provide data directly to the question of whether low fluoride exposure levels less than 3.0 mg/L in drinking water adversely associated with children’s intelligence. In this survey, we investigated the effects of low fluoride exposure on children’s intelligence and dental fluorosis. 331 children aged from 7 to 14 were randomly recruited from four sites in Hulunbuir City, China. Intelligence was assessed using Combined Raven Test-The Rural in China while dental fluorosis was diagnosed with Dean’s index. Mean value of fluoride in drinking water was 1.31±1.05 mg/L (range 0.24-2.84). Urine fluoride was inversely associated with IQ in the multiple linear regression model when children’s age as a covariate variable was taken into account (P<0.0001). Each increase in 1 mg/L of urine fluoride associated with 0.59-point decrease in IQ (P=0.0226). Meanwhile, there was a dose-response relationship between urine fluoride and dental fluorosis (P<0.0001). In conclusion, our study suggested that low levels of fluoride exposure in drinking water had negative effects on children's intelligence and dental health and confirmed the dose-response relationships between urine fluoride and IQ scores as well as dental fluorosis.

    i put this up the other day on huffington.

    you think the japanese and americans cover up nuclear problems.
    the british have dumped more cesium in the sea in the last 30 years than any other country in the world,up until a couple of months ago.
    japan is now the biggest exporter of radiation.
    in the uk sellafield plutonium mox site has a unique ability to dump and get away with it.
    these british plants now owned by the french will be run into the ground they will squeeze every penny of profit from them.
    the tragic situation is this.
    sellafield is still cleaning up and decontamin­ating reactor parts from 1950 and 1960s magnox nuclear power stations.
    those items will need storage for at least another 100 years plus.
    is the storage cost in the financial calculatio­n for reactor builds no.
    solar is to expensive so is wind the nuke guys say.
    well japan are going to have to factor 500 billion dollars of tax money to resolve fukymediac­overuppy.

    SOSDD. How many Brits (or anyone else) know about Sellafield, the world’s first commercial nuclear power plant in the UK? According to WIKI:

    ……….Between 1950 and 2000 there have been 21 serious incidents or accidents involving some off-site radiological releases that merited a rating on the International Nuclear Event Scale, one at level 5, five at level 4 and fifteen at level 3. Additionally during the 1950s and 1960s there were protracted periods of known, deliberate, discharges to the atmosphere of plutonium and irradiated uranium oxide particulates.[41] These frequent incidents, together with the large 2005 Thorp plant leak which was not detected for nine months, have led some to doubt the effectiveness of the managerial processes and safety culture on the site over the years.

    In the hasty effort to build an independent British nuclear weapon in the 1940s and 1950s, radioactive waste was diluted and discharged by pipeline into the Irish Sea. Some claim that the Irish Sea remains one of the most heavily contaminated seas in the world because of these discharges…………….. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sellafield#Radiological_releases

    As I said before, IT was and IS about FUKUSHIMA.

    All of this from the incident, the news blackout, plants here in US threatened, all of this is about Fukushima and the Nuclear Indistry owning us…

    I posted these comments last night:

    All of us here at EneNews must put our voices together and become one voice that is heard all around this tiny, fragile planet we call Mother Earth.

    If we, this generation, at this moment in time, fail in stopping this monster to humanity, then our children and all life that comes after us will suffer the worst possible fate.
    We will be accessories to the murder of all life on earth.

        Yell it as loud as you can.
        Keep telling it till anyone listens.
        We must organize into an unstoppable force.
        The only way it will stop, is if the masses make it stop.
        There are almost SEVEN billion people on this planet. If we can wake up even a few hundred million.
        We must, it has been left to us.
        We must organize into a force that will be listened to.
        We are a diverse group from all over this planet.
        That already gives us power to organize im many locations.
        We need a place, a format, a website, a name, a slogan, an advertizing blitz.
        We need to pool resources, talent, ideas, energy, support, financing, goals…
        We need to do it the way they have done it.
        We need to beat them at their own game. We need to find a way to overwhelm them with OUR power.
        We have it, it is inside all of us.
        If we do not pick up this ball, that has been laid at our feet, then they will win and we will die as losers.
        I don’t know about you, but I believe in myself, my children, this planet and all the life that resides here.
        Most of all I believe that there is a reason that we are here. I don’t know what that is, but there is a reason that Man is on this earth and I think that reason is for good not evil.
        We are the only critter, out of trillions, on this planet that have the ability to think about tomorrow. That is what makes us unique. That is what seperates us from all other creatures.
        You have seen what today is.
        What do you want tomorrow to be?

      the tipping point has passed it will only be shifted by mass death or more big bangs.
      control is absolute we are a psychotic zeolite clay fringe.

    The Thom Hartman Program on RT.

    Seems Japan has another nuclear plant that has been in trouble just ‘up the road a piece”

    http://www.truth-out.org/thom-hartmann-second-japan-nuke-more-dangerous-fukushima/1309353982

    About 300 miles southwest of Fukushima sits the Monju nuclear reactor – a prototype fast-breeder reactor filled to the brim with plutonium – the deadliest element on the face of the planet. And last year – a 3 ton device of some sort fell into the Monju reactor blocking access to the nuclear fuel rods in the reactor core – and despite several attempts – has yet to be recovered. Another attempt will be made next week to clear the 3 ton object from the reactor – but critics caution that the procedure is extremely dangerous and could trigger an explosion in the nuclear fuel rods.

    How do you drop a 3 ton ANYTHING into a reactor?

    I remember Thom Hartman from years ago. He wouldn’t play ball(like censorship, etc.) like the big boys wanted him to do. He preferred being a true , free journalist. His show for RT is The Big Picture.

    The webcam is easily identifiable as a big lie right now. I watched the clouds for awhile and no movement. There is a small blackish cloud above reactor 3 that isn’t moving, and there is a chemtrail that just sits there. What a farce.

    This is my first post to enenews.com.

    What follows is an email letter I sent to the editor of World Nuclear News who was complicit in this collusion in the U.K. In the early days of Fukushima I accused him directly of being an industry shill. I followed this event from the beginning and posted extensively on Reddit.com username: muirnoire about the severity of the event. I predicted every outcome eventually revealed as fact by the Japanese government and Tepco. The only thing that really hasn’t been revealed fully so far is that the spent fuel pools at #3 were either entirely or partially vaporized in the explosion there Monday March 14th @ 11:15am local Japan time. This is arguably the most serious aspect of the accident at Fukushima and it was pretty much off-limits — the issue skirted around — even the periphery sources dared not address the horror of that MOX fuel pool being vaporized. That was the focus of my campaign on Reddit.com. You can delve into my citation heavy history under username muirnoire on reddit.com if interested. It was obvious that pro-nuclear operatives were on Reddit and actively downplaying and countermandering this event on social networking sites. Have no doubt.

    You can make a difference. Write somebody. Do your part so your childrens’ children can live in a safer world.

    My email to Jeremy Gordon – Editor WNN:

    “Apparently my rather brusque statement to you in a previous email has proven to be a statement of fact. Your industry is at its apex — it will now begin a decline over the next one hundred years into insignificance — a complete — a complete decommissioning lays in the nuclear industries future. Mark my words. The Industrial Revolution, The Technological Revolution and now The Green Revolution. You’ve bet on the wrong horse. Repent. Join us.”

    Glad your here enenews.com. You’re misleadingly sensationalist at times but a good consolidator and aggregator of info difficult to find elsewhere. Where there is smoke there is fire and you attempt to get beneath the smokescreen. Good job.

    • I think “misleadingly sensationalist” might be a bit much.

      We’re not the National Enquirer here.

      The difficulty of getting the correct dates for articles (given the web) and the extra work required by admin to check if the article is indeed new is behind most of it, I think.

      Also, some articles do indeed contain new info, but also contain old info, which upsets some.

      Otherwise, we are indeed trying to engender an appropriate sense of “crisis”, but I disagree that it is being done dishonestly.

      If there is sensationalism, I say “Let it go”, because sensationalism is precisely what we need during this ongoing global disaster.

      It’s an information war, and war is dirty.

  • Fall out man!

    The Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has released more than 80 emails sent in the weeks after Fukushima in response to requests under freedom of information legislation. They also show:

    • Westinghouse said reported remarks on the cost of new nuclear power stations by the deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, were “unhelpful and a little premature”.

    Notice that the Department of Energy and Climate Change are one department. Nuclear power and the global warming fraud (now renamed “climate change”) are inextricably linked. It was the nuke industry that first pushed that lie.

    Tragically, as long as people can be fooled into thinking that the world is magically being heated up by their breathing, they will beg for nuclear power to be used to “save them” from the bogey man of alleged man made global warming.

    Anyone who swallows the lie of global warming is already beaten. The Nuke industry might as well own them.

      The existance and devastating effects of climate change and global warming have been widely proven and explained by scientists worldwide. There are still the idiots who claim “well, there has been lots of snow in the last 3 winters, there can’t be no global warming”.

    Whoever owns the nuclear industry, also owns the governments of the US, UK, and at least Japan, as well as 98.5& of the news media.

    It’s hands down, no questions about it – the nuke industry vs. humanity. They have hijacked a good portion of gov and media to get away with as much as they have thus far.

    The pentagon still claims that depleted uranium has no affect.

    The nuke industry only gets away with their crimes against humanity because of the time lag between dose and effects.

    Stand up! Unite! Lets shut the MOFOs down left right and center. Let’s show the Japanese how to bring an industry down onto its knees (since the japanese can’t even muster up over 10 000 people for a protest – even after clearly getting it right up the $@% by TEPCO).

    This is an easy one for people to stand up and unite against… take down the nuke industry once and for all!
