Title: Press conference with US Navy Quartermasters (retired) Maurice Enis and Jaime Plym
Event: The Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident
Date: March 11, 2013

US Navy Quartermaster (retired) Maurice Enis, USS Ronald Reagan:

Since our interview last night that aired on TV [CBS News: Navy vets say Fukushima meltdown made them sick], a bunch of people have emailed Jamie.

Higher ups, like senior chiefs, saying that they’re sick.

And I think they’re going to try to get involved.

    TEPCO is making Japanese citizens. under mandatory evacuation in the lacking 12k zone around the nuke plant, pay back money saying the small stipend is only a loan thus I don't think our sailors will reap any payment for health expenses or anything unless our government provides it but I do wish them luck on their endeavors. JMHO

      The young, relatively-low-level former enlisteds who did the press conference said that they signed all their ciliv rights away just by JOINING the Navy. But they added that they were coerced into signing ADDITIONAL no-liability agreements before they got off that contaminated ship, and also that the medical records of the young man, the one the most badly irradiated on the ship as confirmed by on-site testing — that his records were destroyed! If they can only secure the testimony of other enlisteds on that ship,a lawyer would have plenty to go on. But it might have to break the back of the military's refusal to compensate purely because it IS the military. The press conference was upsetting to watch but they have to press forward.

    Let the lawsuits begin, because nuclear has to end. A steady stream of radiation is flowing through the United States right now, non-stop, and it is harmful.

        16,000 Pbq of Xenon alone.

        Lung cancers will increase in the future from this, imo.

          From the report Pu239 linked:

          "Regarding 133Xe, we find a total release of 15.3 (uncertainty range 12.2–18.3) EBq, which is more than twice as high as the total release from Chernobyl and likely the largest radioactive noble gas release in history. The entire noble gas inventory of reactor units 1–3 was set free into the atmosphere between 11 and 15 March 2011."

          Now, keep in mind that the World Health Organization's report did not incorporate any of the gases released from Fukushima.

          Keep in mind that this gas hung over the United States for days in some states.

    This calls out for higher level Naval officers with a conscience.

      Well, Hillary is gone so now we will see what JibJab veteran John Kerry can dish out. I expect more of the same old BS we have grown to see in American politics.

      We haven't had a president who would buck the system since Kennedy and we saw what happened to him. I always suscribed to the Mafia angle for his death because of his brother's job, but I am beginning to lean more to the business angle. Kennedy was a threat to the military industrial complex. Look how many trillion dollar wars we have fought (and mostly lost) since 1963. Absolutely bankrupted the American government and made corporations and individuals fabulously rich. Over 400 billionaires now in America.

      One reason for individual wealth for the super rich… The tax codes changed since 1945:

      Personal income tax rate for top bracket

      Years Percent
      1945 91%
      1946-63 88
      1964-81 70
      1981-86 50
      1988 28
      1991 31

      "The United States Revenue Act of 1945 repealed the excess profits tax, reduced individual income tax rates (the top rate fell from 94 percent to 86.45 percent), and reduced corporate tax rates (the top rate dropped from 40 percent to 38 percent)."

    People should be held accountable for their activities while in office should they prove to be criminal.
    If corporations..(which the US government is)..is legally considered a person.
    Then people should be able to be sued ..for activities while maintaining that persona.

    It's the war of 3/11/11, give them support. Help them. Acknowledge their pain. Remedy their personal situations best you can. Now, put your boots back on and let's go to work. There may be a million fishermen in the same boat. Heck, we are all in the same boat.

    In the states we have tested the atmosphere, water, snow, filters, some food, etc. for radiation. But, how much radiation are the people carrying around?

    This US Marine base in Japan has to have been contaminated and still getting it today. While looking over the website for the base which I have below in a link, I discovered an interesting read. If I am reading this right this Colonel was the man in charge of operation tomodachi where all the sailors and miliary personnel were exposed to radiation.
