        1ST LInk shows you what we’re up against. Good grief, no wonder the U.N. and WHO are saying NOTHING. They are protecting IAEA AND THE NRC

          Hi Whoopie, I already ruined my Sunday morning with that video. 🙁
          Who do they think they are, doing this to helpless people? You’re right – I’m PISSED

          • Whoopie Whoopie

            We’re in for the fight of ours LIVES!!
            I see no end in sight, as long as their all in cahoots with each other. It’s like a CANCER these agencies. I feel sick. Absolutely sick and pissed.

          And the public from panicking. Ahh, ignorance is bliss tis folly to be wise and very frustrating.

      • Fall out man!

        That video was a good find Whoopie. It was interesting seeing the look on the faces of those trying to pretend Chernobyl’s radiation had no health effects. They knew they were lying. I would like to know how they justify in their own minds ensuring the continuing death and destruction of so many people. It was also interesting seeing the look on their faces when both Yablokov and Chris Busby were making their presentations. They looked worried.

        Its small consolation now, but ultimately they will face justice. Perhaps not in this life, this fallen world is not just and evil men can get away with evil acts. But ultimately, when they die, they will face judgement. Ultimately we know in our consciences that justice must be done. Unless they repent they will be separated from God for eternity in hell.

        I think that is something for the paid shills who attempt to suppress the truth in many other forums to consider as well. Ultimately by concealing the truth they will cost people their lives as surely as if they had murdered them. Their consciences must tell them that ultimately, justice will be done.

        The other thing that fascinated me was the liars claiming all knowledge, all truth and all freedom from bias. Repeatedly asking for facts but turning a blind eye to them and offering none of their own. Claiming “all science”.

        It reminded me of some other nuke industry related lies.
        – The man made global warming lie (initially launched by the nuke industry – the DOE actually did the initial funding of the unit at the University of East Anglia that got caught lying to promote global warming paranoia in “email gate”)
        – The Fluoridation lie. The nuke industry (with help from ALCOA) first launched fluoridation as a cover for fluoride poisoning of crops animals and people. Like radiation, they claimed in small doses it was good for people. Investigative journalist Christopher Bryson wrote a book about it.

    Hmm, over working the equipment that processes nuclear waste?

    How (exactly) does one “process nuclear waste”?

    What are the end products?

    What happens to them?

      I should have asked:

      How (exactly) does one “process nuclear waste” with a “makeshift electric device”?

      Nuclear Power: Results

      Uranium, when burned in nuclear power stations, makes nuclear waste out of which we make nuclear weapons. Chernobyl nuclear power station, visible on the horizon right, like all nuclear power stations was built to produce Plutonium for nuclear weapons. Plutonium 239 was used in the bomb that obliterated the entire city of Nagasaki. We make Plutonium 239 by splitting uranium atoms in nuclear fuel rods. When uranium atoms split, the flying particles collide and stick together, making different atoms. Plutonium 239 (239) is just one of many atoms made in this way. Used fuel rods are placed in acid baths to separate-out the 239 atoms for nuclear weapons.
      When an invisible atom of 239 splits, it releases enough heat and energy to fire a six-inch-bullet! Ten million 239 atoms will fit on one grain of sugar. Imagine the firepower of ten-million six-inch-bullets exploding in a space the size of a grain of sugar. Now times that thought by ten trillion. That’s what happened to Nagasaki.

      Apart from its explosive “qualities” 239 is ten thousand times stronger than cyanide. 239 kills 100 cells per minute. The human body contains billions of spare cells. The spare cells are programmed to mend any damage. When the body is invaded with 239 atoms, that can never stop killing cells, the body starts to die faster than nature intended. If the body conceives in this condition the results are horrific.
      memo Nuclear power stations are not built to produce electricity. Every other type of power station produces cheaper power simply by not producing nuclear waste that the taxpayer has to pay for thousands of years hence. Nuclear power stations are built to produce nuclear weapons material like Plutonium 239.
      Splitting Plutonium 239 atoms as we did in 1945 at Nagasaki, does not destroy all the atoms. The incredible speed of the blast means many atoms stay intact. When these atoms are being made, read more,Chernobyl today.

  • What kind of ‘makeshift’ electrical devices are they using, to ‘process’ nuclear waste?

    What is nuclear waste anyways? What are they processing it into? Are they building nuclear weapons there, or experimenting with even worse things that do not even exist yet? Who is inspecting what they are doing there? Does anyone even care?

    It sounds like this thing that caught fire was a homebuilt, jerry rigged, rube goldberg device, made out of wire, string, and put together by a five year old, perhaps?

    They have had THREE fires there in a relatively short amount of time according to the announcer.

    It sure sounds like they have MAJOR problems there.

    And, as usual, the coverup and denial continues. No information about anything specific.. Lots of secrets and spin, as usual…

    Nothing to see here, move on, do NOT think about this nuclear plant reprocessing nuclear waste, and having multiple fires with jerry rigged electrical devices.

    Beam me up Scottie, these lads are not accepting any help and bent on self destruction.

    Fire up the warp drive, so we can get the heck out of here.

    One two, three they’re out. You’re right, beam us up. I keep hoping aliens will come to save us as bizarre as this sounds I think it is the only hope as our species don’t have a clue how to handle nuclear power except for pocketing the money. Oh that mean ohh mean, mean green, almighty dollar….

    • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

      Dear Moon: We must save ourselves from ourselves as a species, in reality and this is very possible. The systems maintaining the status quos are weak, utterly Utopian (lack of ecological sustainability is what is truly Utopian in the pejorative sense) top-down hierarchies that cannot operate without their heads or when their media control is disrupted sufficiently. There are 7B of us and only several hundred thousand of “them” (the despots and their lackeys). We all, myself included, make this so much more difficult a revolution than it needs be.

    The Tsuruga plant is one of a cluster of four nuke plants on the west coast of Japan. There should be a law against building nuke plants so close to each other. If one plant suffers catastrophic failure, then what happens to the three others? Maybe they would have to be abandoned, or maybe all the wayward neutrons could set off chain reactions at the other plants or something. I dunno, but it’s worrying four nuke plants are so close to each other, whereof at least one of them seems to be rather “troublesome”, to say the least.

    • PayAttention

      and something that hasn’t gotten much attention here is that the mental midgets in the nuclear industry are pushing smaller nuclear reactors where they’ll string together a dozen or more of them ! they actually want to string together nuclear reactors !

  • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

    Hmmm, I wonder what kind of “fire”. My suspicion and please feel free to take it or leave it, is that Tsuruga, in fact, had a partial, or full meltdown without nuclear explosion, on May 2, 2011, which is coincidentally, the date that the U.S. caught the re-animated corpse, I mean the living passed 2002 (cough!) person of Osama bin Laden, conveniently killed him–again–and then buried him at sea…
