NBC 4 Washington D.C., Feb. 28, 2014:

News 4′s Molette Green is following breaking news from the live desk. Molette…

Just getting some troubling news out of Japan. Fish caught off the coast of Fukushima are showing high levels of radiation. We’ve just learned this morning the amount exceeds Japan’s allowed limit. This information is coming in from the head of agriculture in Tokyo this morning. A new report just released days ago says some of that radioactive contamination from Japan’s nuclear disaster several years ago could actually reach the U.S. West Coast within weeks.

That’s the latest from the live desk.

      • Fall out man!

        I notice that nuclear power sponsored "mother nature network" is all about global warming. The big lie that the nuke industry uses to keep itself going. As posted before

        It was the nuclear industry that first studied climate change and climate in a major way. Both hoping to control climate and testing the effects of atomic bombs on it. Today Lawrence Livermore Labs is right behind the IPCC. Nuclear and Climate science and global warming alarmism are deeply intertwined and it is global warming threats that keep nuclear power being promoted as the way to go.
        http://www.academia.edu/2120293/Entangled_Histories_climate_science_and_nuclear_weapons_research

        Note also that the University of East Anglia climate "science" unit, which was caught lying to the pubic to promote man made global warming, was originally set up and funded by the US DOD.

        The ultimate irony is that the Nuke industry's own research shows that it really is a cause of significant climate change. The vast amounts of Krypton 85 released from normally operating nuclear power plants lower the conductivity of the atmosphere very significantly. The effects that will have on climate are not clear, but thought to be significant by the industry themselves. Nuclear pollution from power plants lowers the conductivity of the atmosphere, affecting the cycle of electrical storms around the globe. (Anne has previously posted detailed links on that)

    The ocean is broken

    But in March and April this year, only silence and desolation surrounded his boat, Funnel Web, as it sped across the surface of a haunted ocean.

    "I've done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I'm used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen."

    In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes.

    Ivan's brother, Glenn, who boarded at Hawaii for the run into the United States, marvelled at the "thousands on thousands" of yellow plastic buoys. The huge tangles of synthetic rope, fishing lines and nets. Pieces of polystyrene foam by the million. And slicks of oil and petrol, everywhere.

    "On the bow, in the waters above Hawaii, you could see right down into the depths. I could see that the debris isn't just on the surface, it's all the way down. And it's all sizes, from a soft-drink bottle to pieces the size of a big car or truck. "We saw a factory chimney sticking out of the water, with some kind of boiler thing still attached below the surface. We saw a big container-type thing, just rolling over and over on the waves.

    And something else. The boat's vivid yellow paint job, never faded by sun or sea in years gone past, reacted with something in the water off Japan, losing its sheen in a strange and unprecedented way

      Japan's nuclear-power crisis is reviving long-held doubts about the strength of the nation's nuclear regulatory system and its independence from government efforts to sell nuclear technology abroad.

      It also highlights past problems with falsified safety records at the Fukushima Daiichi plant and with its parent company, Tokyo Electric Power Co. or Tepco, though there is no evidence those prior problems are adding to the current problems.

      The Fukushima Daiichi plant has a black mark on its record from earlier in the last decade, when a scandal involving falsified safety records led to parent company Tepco briefly shutting down its entire nuclear fleet in Japan. In 2002, Tepco admitted to the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency that it had falsified the results of safety tests on the containment vessel of the No. 1 reactor, which is now one of three reactors that workers are struggling to keep from overheating. The test took place in 1991-1992.

      The scandal was the latest in a string of nuclear safety records cover-ups by Tepco, including the revelation that the company's doctoring of safety records concerning reactor shrouds, a part of the reactors themselves, in the 1980s through the early 1990s. Five top executives resigned after the company admitted to having falsified safety.

      The operator of the Fukushima No. 1 plant submitted a report to the country’s nuclear watchdog 10 days before the quake hit on March 11, admitting it had failed to inspect 33 pieces of equipment in its six reactors.

      A power board distributing electricity to a reactor’s temperature control valves was not examined for 11 years, and inspectors faked records, pretending to make thorough inspections when in fact they were only cursory, Tepco said.

      It also said that inspections, which are voluntary, did not cover other devices related to cooling systems, including water pump motors and diesel generators.

      The report was submitted after the regulator ordered operators to examine whether inspections were suitably thorough.

      ”Long-term inspection plans and maintenance management were inadequate,” the nuclear safety agency concluded in a follow-up report two days after Tepco’s admission.

      ”The quality of inspection was insufficient.”

      The safety agency ordered the operator draw up a corrective plan by June 2.

        (1) the inspectors were too busy over those 11 years, or;

        (2) because the Yakuza, or;

        (3) because profits were placed over safety, or;

        (4) all of the above, or;

    Note in the press release/news article.."sample tests are conducted to check radiation levels"!? SAMPLE tests? Radiation is not equally spread thru fish.or any other substance or living thing. Sample just means there was a test of a fish..or two or ??? They need to have a way to test ALL fish..a scanner? Body type..test the fish with appropriate gamma and beta detectors..KNOWING PU and other alpha emitters will never show up in those products…scary..

    USA is not much better..recent report said they tested FOUR!! fish..4 to make a pronouncement all was 'safe.' It only takes a few PU or polonium particles to get you very very sick..internal contamination..or cook the little critters..and into the steam….goes the radiation…

        POINT OF SALE food testing will become the norm, as Tokyo store owners and their customers began to demonstrate a year ago. Separate schools of Pacific fish, some seriously contaminated by localized or repeated passage through what marine biologists term "ocean streams" of hotspots, with other schools perhaps escaping the exposure altogether, renders any concept of "sampling" meaningless.

        "Product of Thailand" and "Distributed By NUK Corp. LA" are now meaningless if not outright dangerous labels.

        See CPM levels listed on grocery shelf price labels at 2:30, and professional food testing at 3:20 and 4:10, in this surprisingly candid year old PBS video:

    Suicide capitalism works when government promotes an unsustainable energy scheme such as nuclear energy. Low or zero interest loans or loan guarantees are used. The operator can make a big profit with little or no concern for the environmental consequences and then walk away with profits leaving residents to clean up the toxic mess.

    With fracking, a landowner is approached for a lease. The fracker gets a zero interest loan from the government. The stata are fracked with dangerous chemicals. Oil and gas are extracted and sold. Profits are taken at about 5%. Operator declares bankruptcy and leaves a huge environmental catastrophe. Campaign contribution paid in advance.

    This pollutes the air, too. Dangerous radionuclides are spread all around. No monitoring of air quality. Drought areas include 57% of US but water goes to frackers. Water rationing and privatization of water in the west where allowed under Homestead Act.

    Cool…. great scheme. Nobody really cares anymore. Politicians and regulators all bought off. Try suing a bankrupt fracker.

    Currently, politics and commerce seem to trump science; but, when we break the laws of physics and biology with a substance that is a known biosphere destroyer, it trumps both. You lose and then you die. In the end, natural law rules.

    This is no surprise at all.

    He who breaks the silence first, seeks to control the situation.
    Like 2 child siblings, caught in a lie, one always spills the beans first, hoping to save his butt.

    NBC.GE has been following this entire SHTF as close as anyone, has more data than anyone, can get closer to the truth, than anyone.

    They may not be the 'first' to break the MSM news, but I might think they will try to be the lead dog in the pack. Someone already said it, 'wag the dog'.

    They have as much, or more to loose, than anyone, in their sick shit world.

    Thanks for the heads up, admin. IT should start to get really interesting now.

    You all are aware that Fox *News* won its court case several years ago
    allowing it to legally lie to the public?

    I seem to recall it being about some hormone added to cows that had a possible carcinagenic property that one of their news journalists
    was reporting on that lead to their being fired for attempting to broadcast
    the true account.
    The courts backed Fox effectively establishing Fox News could lie to the public as it wanted.

      The story was hours (or less) from airing and it got canceled.

      It is probably the best case example of MSM being influenced
      by external forces. With conflict of interest too.

      My thought is that NBC knows a lot more than they are letting on and that there will be a lot more MSM "news" about Fuku and they want to milk it for all it's worth.
      Sucks to play "me to" in their game.

      What I do know from my Earth First! Journal readings back in the 90s was that if the MSM ever did grab on to a story, it is all too often at least a year late, and routinely even longer.
      And they would work it for at most a week and then move on to something else.

      I am compelled to inject some Buckminster Fuller wisdom on this.

      Emergence Through Emergency

      A given population will ignore a blatantly obvious problem until it adversely affects their wallet and/or probability of survival.

      Also keep in mind that the MSM is dealing with a psychological mindset that none of us here can relate to. Informed people do not surround themselves with the ignorant, any more than alcoholics hang out in zero alcohol use social settings.

      The American world view has been reduced to a sound bite driven dichotomy…
      us or them.
      (Regardless of education level!)

      Which leaves most of them thinking that Fuku is
      "over there"…"it can't get here"…"it's too far away".

      So here is reality of NBCs audience…

    I'm wondering if a 44 second sound bite was too much for the left coasters to process.

    It takes less time to jog through the white house in a suit.

    Was it enough to startle anyone awake?

    Or just lull them back to sleep…

    • This 'breaking news' video was far too long.

      Anything over 20 or 30 seconds and people will change channels. ;)

      I found it interesting how the reporter seems startled and makes it sound like something that happened 3 years ago, instead of something that is ongoing and out of control right now.

      hmm…?

    What we lack are models. For example, WIPP admits to a leak. What exactly leaked? That amounts to so much radioactive material equals so many Plutonium atoms which then diffuse into the environment which includes wind which mingles over time with other air flows and so on. The Plutonium and Americium do not vanish but persist for eons and will end up somewhere.
    This is not easy to visualize. A handful of dust tossed into the air on a windy day . . . the dust eventually settles down somewhere.

    As it is we all have rather vague images of hot particles going somewhere. Is getting one by breathing like winning the lottery? One chance in say 50 million. What are the odds after the WIPP event? After Fukushima? With Fukushima the odds keep improving over time. Ten years from now you have a greater chance of being a winner in that lottery.

      I remember back in the late 80s coming across some obscure math/science story that ran through the stats and calculated that
      all of us on the planet had already breathed in at least one of the molecules from the exhale of Ceasar when he uttered the phrase "Et, tu, Brute?".

      So what do have going forward, random placement of the atomic equivalent of land mines?

    It just goes to show how far journalism has degraded and the utter disregard to investigate the story from a nonpartisan view and fact find.
    The statement Japans nuclear disaster several years ago, just emphasized the lack of fact finding, can't even get the time line right, what the chances of them reporting on the whole story.
    They probably put interns on stories like this so they can manipulate and control.
    Real Journalism is dead, you are a shadow of your former self, hang your head low, you have done a great injustice to your self and your readers and someday you may have to answer to these deceptions, if found to be knowely withholding information your readers are not going to be impressed.

    Imagine that a zoo transferring two dozen of the world's most poisonous snakes by truck discovers that these snakes have all escaped when the truck had an accident near a park in the middle of Los Angeles. This could hardly be kept from the public without seriously endangering lives. The LA Times would run a front page with pictures of he snakes in vivid color. And plenty of warnings. LA has about 4 million people so the odds of getting bitten are not too great really. Especially if you consider that a few of the snakes will wander into the busy streets and get squashed. A few will be killed by other animals and so on. So maybe 1 chance in 500,000 or more. And yet there will be panic and alarm though probably the city will survive.
    At what point will people forget about it? Finally all but three will be accounted for; and then a year or two along someone will get bitten but that snake will be captured. So maybe finally three or four people die. Several are saved. And the last snake dies alone in a sewer.
    Question: how might this be used as a parallel to radioactive particles? Can we learn something useful by using examples like this? [10 points for excellent answers]

      snake bites are provable, but with radiation, you can never be 100% sure, so its nothing to worry about

        even though plutonium is more poisonous than any snake venom, if you congregate in sports bars and shopping malls, you're hardly worried about it one way or the other

            whats different about venomous snakes on the loose and a radioactive waste spill? Snakes dont create uninhabitable tracts of land for the next million years, destroying the agriculture, killing millions and sacking the finances of entire countries, blowing their toxins into the stratosphere that circles the earth every 40 days raining down enough poison to kill every person 400 times over. But other than that, theres a lot thats similar

      Are the snakes internal or external?

      Are they all rattle snakes, or are some black mambas?

      Are they small enough to be ingested with a breath?

      Or do they hide in your fitch sammich?

      Are they short lived snakes, or do they live forever?

      Does the POTUS get on TV and state that there will be no significant snakes that come to our shores?

      Does he repeat that to be perfectly clear?

      Are any of them on any planes?

      Alas, these are deadly snakes.
      But they live for more than 240,000 years, some of them.
      Invisible killers, genetic destroyers.
      Trillions of them, in air, food, water, everywhere.
      Nothing can kill them, only time wears them down.
      And they will take time, from every living thing on earth.
      How much time, will they take from our future?
      How much time, can we afford?

      cap'n nemo, i remember a few years back when about 5 or 6 armed nuclear warheads were locked and loaded onto a b52 out of minot afb then flown over our country, schools, homes, businesses down to barksdale afb. we were told basically, "oops our bad, napping of the job." bullshit, the likelihood of that happening without direct orders, was pretty slim. i am still disgusted that was swept under the rug. that trail could have been investigated. nuclear terrorists, and their still getting away with it.

    Seems like it can no longer be hidden, the deformities, die-offs. How many people have suffered because of their pride and shame by not telling the truth? Only GOD knows.

    The time is coming where many in desperation will be coming to this site for information in BASIC TERMS what is going on. The underling youth have been cheated out of an education with dumb-down fruit phones and flappy birds. They will need to know what is a half life, a Celsius 137, why this atomic radiation in all varieties is harmful to them, will it dilute like soap in water and such like.

    With respect to those here the mass population wouldn't have a clue as to what is spoken of in this forum. Please consider adding less technical talk in a portion of your posts so that they the underlings can understand.

      WNTF I thought a bit more about why Fox and NBC are suddenly covering this…
      I wonder if the government had to choose for the public's attention to go to fukushima, to avoid too much focus getting on WIPP ( and it seems Hanford, Bridgeton radioactive landfill fire also getting out of control… and whatever happened to St. Lucie ?)
