Miyagi man who sold contaminated straw blames gov’t for scandal, Mainichi Daily News, July 19, 2011:

A man in Osaki, Miyagi Prefecture, who sold straw contaminated with high levels of radioactive cesium told the Mainichi on July 18 that he had never imagined that his straw was contaminated because the city is about 150 kilometers away from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant.

“The wind was in a different direction immediately after the hydrogen explosions, so I never thought it was contaminated. I really feel sorry,” the man said.

The man made the remarks in response to recent revelations that cows shipped from Fukushima Prefecture were fed with contaminated straw that he had shipped. [...]

    This earthquake is 11.12 miles from Fukushima Daiichi (#1) Nuclear Power Plant. It findable on the internet but will probably disappear tomorrow.

    I think this record is temporary because the url from jma is not a permanent designation, but the designation for the last earthquake and it will be a different earthquake at this url as soon as another one occurs.

    They’re going to blame the little guy, like he would have even thought to test his straw for radioactivity.. He said it, that’s 150km away. I’d blame to gov also..

    So, the Japanese Govt. is going to blame this man?

    It is the fault of the Govt. and TEMPCO that this happened.

    Again, this man is an “innocent” bystander that they are trying to blame for their cover-up.

    Again, for shame, tempco and the japanese govt. for subjecting these people to the horrors of radiation.

    Time will show this, as it does in Afghanistan, Iraq, Chernobyl, and the never ending ‘wars’ aka conflicts that the military complex and the Zionist run govt. are waging on innocent people.

    The images will, hopefully, be inbeded on their minds for life.

    This horror can be stopped. Action must be taken. There is NO reason to commit genocide in today’s society. It was done in Japan decades ago, and I believe there should be voices that do not allow this to happen again.

    The American public are blinded by ‘frivolity’.. as in American Idol, Big Brother, for crying out loud.. staged, like wars, to dumb down the floride drinking , DNA changing , chemtrail breathing IDIOTS that they want to be their slaves.

    END of RANT. for today. I am after “Rupert ” not really his first name which is Keith, Murdock. Zionist, who is slowly, but surely being exposed for the fraud/manipulator he is. :)

    The disaster in Fukishima is a Wake UP Call. People of all nations need to look at who is ‘driving their bus’.. It could very well be Zionists with their own agenda and no life is spared to get what they want. :(

    Radioactive particles traveling against the wind

    “The wind was in a different direction immediately after the hydrogen explosions, so I never thought it was contaminated. I really feel sorry,” the man said.

    During the Iraq wars DU particles were traveling against the spin of the earth and jet stream. DU was discovered in England during the bombing of IRAQ.

    This ability of hot particles to distribute itself over a wide area, upwind is something I find disturbing.

    It would mean that Japan’s neighboring countries to their west are in trouble.
    China, Viet Nam, Korea to name a few.

      So my question to Noah and others is how do the particles get there. My experience with Hot Air Balloons is that prevailing wind is only one wind direction. Wind is in different directions at different heights. However I remember someone saying the movement of radio-active particles can be influenced by earths magnetic field.

    • Dear Sirs,

      this is what we wanted to avoid with our offer. Every child knows, that wind directions change, and dust (even radioactive) can be captured by a filter. It is only important how fine this is. We earn our money by filtering out contamination in industrial environmental purposes since 15 years and we know, that there is a good chance to lower emissions from fukushima significantly.

      it is absolutely not understandable, why the japanese Authorities, TEPCO, IAEA, (experts)as well the international press ignore our help since more than 10 weeks but present one horrible story after the other and let the people live in this disaster.

      Since radioactive particles from Fukushima are spread even to the US and Canada Westcoast, the catastrophy is no longer local.

      Now they are suppressing information about ecovac solution in japan but are not able, to do something helpful.
      These people shouldn´t be allowed to run a nuclear power plant because they are not intelligent enough.

      This is not a joke, it is too serious and i feel very sorry for the people in Japan, but their bosses do not let us help.

        Hi Bernd,
        > These people shouldn´t be allowed to run a nuclear power plant because they are not intelligent enough.

        Right. The intelligent people wouldn’t start running one in the first place.

        Guess your technique’s too expensive for Tepco shareholders… dammit.

    There were large waves and a strong wind blowing and a of lot garbage had washed up on the beach. The local people said that they never had seen so much gabage on the beach.
    Is this some of the debris from Japan, the currents will Take it this way and it has been 4 months, Maybe they should check the water for radiation

    PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — Symbolizing how far the two countries have come, U.S. organizers on Tuesday hosted an ancient and ritualistic Japanese tea ceremony steeped in tradition at the watery grave of Pearl Harbor.

    It was the first time the centuries-old art form emblematic of Japan was performed in the USS Arizona Memorial that sits on top of the battleship, which sank in the Japanese attack 70 years ago.

      P.S. The Japanese knew full well everything in the food chain needs to be tested before marketing, and the US Civil Defense manuals state so as well.

      It is a lie to say the Gov. of Japan did not know this. The farmer OTOH can be forgiven, as they seem to treat their population like they grow mushrooms:

      “Kept in the dark, and fed Manure”

      :(

      According to another article, this year’s rice has not been harvested yet. The rice straw in question, a byproduct of last year’s crop, was left in the field, which is how it was exposed to contaminants.

      If I can find the link again, I’ll post it here.

    If this was China, he would have been shot.

    It doesn’t matter whatever he says. He endangered human lives.

    But the Japanese government has no rationale to keep this chap behind bars for the rest of his life as it should do, because it has to spare the culprits on TEPCO first.

  • Contaminated rice straw found in 10 prefectures

    The Japanese government says rice straw used for cattle feed contaminated with radioactive cesium has been found in 10 prefectures across the country. Beef produced from cattle fed the contaminated straw and shipped out from farms has already been distributed to almost all prefectures.

    Inspectors on Wednesday detected 7 times the government-set maximum standard level of radioactive cesium in rice straw used by a farm in Shizuoka Prefecture. This pushes the number of prefectures where cattle were fed with contaminated straw to 10.

    Most of the rice straw in question was shipped from companies in Miyagi Prefecture, north of Fukushima, where the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, responsible for the contamination, is located.

    On Tuesday, the government suspended shipments of beef cattle from Fukushima Prefecture after high levels of radioactive cesium were detected in beef shipped from the prefecture. One beef sample contained radioactive cesium in amounts 9 times the government standard.
