Interview with nuclear engineer Hiroaki Koide (translation by Prof. Robert Stolz, transcription by Akiko Anson), published Mar 8, 2016 (emphasis added):

  • Now, strontium-90 [Sr-90] has been leaking from Fukushima into the ocean, so it will eventually reach the United States, especially the west coast. This much we are sure of… it is the masses of people who need to realize the impact of the contamination on them. In the case of the Fukushima disaster, for example, they need to be aware that some radioactive material is reaching the North American coast, and the prevailing westerly winds will carry anything released into the atmosphere to the US
  • While we are not really sure [how much radioactive material has leaked from Fukushima] we do know that a portion of this material will ride the prevailing winds across the Pacific Ocean. On the other hand, closer to the ground, the winds will be east, south, and north, and therefore this other portion will fall on Japan―and we can investigate the actual levels here: how much fell on this town, on this prefecture? Adding these up, it seems to be only 2.4 PBq. Which is to say of the total fifteen PBq, 2.4, or roughly only 16%, fell on Japanese soil. If the totals are higher, still a smaller share of the total contamination will have fallen on Japan compared with the Pacific, with the largest portion falling on the west coast of the United States.
  • So why don’t we hear complaints from the US? Why are there no calls for compensation? Whenever someone asks me this, I simply say that there just aren’t any such complaints. Why is this so? Well the levels released by the US during the atmospheric testing were tens of times greater than Fukushima. They are the criminals, so they cannot ask for compensation from Japan. The U.S. government does not want to have to reflect on its own past, and I think they are eager to completely avoid bringing up anything like that conversation.

        that line makes it sound like the outer containment walls were 6 to 13 feet thick. I think they were about 18 inches. From a ballpark shear calculation, it might take about 500 psi to blast them out

        • PostNuclear PostNuclear

          Your off-hand calculations are much appreciated, code….As are yours, goodhart.

        • Code I did some work on blast energy, blast impulse, pressures, and TNT equivalents of Hydrogen.

          Bottom line, no way was Fukushima 3 or 4 a Hydrogen explosion.

          Check it out, lots of great sources in here.

        • Only quoted two expert sources, and they had very different information, so I provide the sources, and let readers pick which one they want to believe.

          Either way, hydrogen gas cannot do what happened at Fukushima.

          No how

          No way

          • Replying to Code and thickness of walls range, rather than trying to get super specific and picking one of them.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            Dr G…well I made an effort to find you an elevation sectional drawing. While not a blue print per se, it was good enough for your estimates. Dont know why this didnt interest you. I maintain that your header suggests that the outer containment walls are much thicker than they are. It doesnt help you I think. You can look at the photos and make a ballpark estimate. Try it.

            As for hydrogen explosions, check out these photos. Consider that 150 kg of hydrogen could plausibly have been in U4.

            Hydrogen-Air Mixtures

            • Code, the overwhelming evidence presented by the AGR article leads anyone with common sense to conclude that yes, there was a FIRST white cloud with hydrogen explosion in building 3, but then TWO MORE explosions happened, and they were something else. As you pointed out, two spent fuel pools have evidence of explosions.

              Anyone can EASILY see the VERY white water vapor cloud caused by the hydrogen explosion down low, and then the grey/pink smoke from 2nd explosion, higher up, then black and purple mushroom cloud from THIRD explosion.

              No way hydrogen caused all of that damage in #3… no way.

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                Guess I dont have common sense. Why do we conclude the first explosion was hydrogen again? The color?

                I would think the whole explosive scenario could be extremely complex. For example Chernobyl was perhaps a combination of a steam explosion, a thermal neutron explosion, a hydrogen explosion and a nuclear explosion (Xe133/Xe133m ratio)

                I cant tell anything from the colors…too subject to the camera and lighting conditions.

            • Actually your building schematic link was interesting Code, but the lack of any meaningful measurements means that it cannot be used with any credibility at all, although it was useful to give a general idea of some kind.

              The last link you provided shows a number of things, such as jet engines burning hydrogen, test detonations, one of which was a gas tank filled with natural gas, when the subject is hydrogen gas. With such a wild mixture, the whole document is suspect. What was the point of it again?

              A bent ladder and a blown apart brick steel sheet building does not make for an equivalent of burning through a concrete steel reinforced walls, columns and floors in a nuclear plant to the point of making them disappear.

              Code, you can call those walls 'thin' all you want, no one will stop you. They were on a diet, rumor has it.

              Especially considering the building was designed to fail at the top floor and gave the hydrogen a weak point to attack, where it would concentrate the most, makes the lower floors turning into dust VERY interesting.

              Don't know why you are fighting so hard to prove that the only thing that happened at Fukushima was hydrogen explosions… curiouser and curiouser

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                Dr G, actually the sectional drawing I sent the link had many dimensions as well as the scale in the lower right hand corner. Maybe you missed it

                Actually Im not fighting for hydrogen explosions. I have posted several times indications to the contrary, including the Sandia Labs reports. But hydrogen could be involved. For some reason you just THINK Im a thin wall hydrogen blast hormesis pushing pro nuke shill. Hahaha…its kind of funny I guess.

                I only said 'thin' because the new poster said thin metal. My fault for not being clear. Thin, thick, powerful….all these are relative terms, they dont mean much without numbers and context.

                Im saying its a complex scenario…something that a big group of explosives, structural and nuclear engineers would work on for a while to figure out.

                One thing we can be certain of; the insiders know a heck of a lot more than we do. DOE, TEPCO NRC

                We can try and be observant and open minded.

                • Jebus Jebus

                  I find it silly to muse on the upper floors BLAST panels designed to "release" their hold on the building in the event of a hydrogen explosion.

                  To all, think about it. They are blast panels for a hydrogen explosion.

                  They prolly worked, but no one can tell because the building was destroyed by a greater explosion…

                      If one understands ENE as an intelligence [sic] operation, then there is no mystery: The primary goal is to control the discussion, keep it within bounds.

                      The resident professional trolls here actually do a creditable job of providing lots of good information, and while some may on gloomy days in their hearts feel rather conflicted by their role, it assuages the conflict to sneak in as much valuable info as possible, given the constraints upon them.

                      An analogy is the JFK coup; whereby this half century later the subject cannot be forthrightly addressed in any western mass media outlet, which are just about entirely intelligence controlled; the subject is also anathema in most so called 'alternative media, that are again intelligence overseen operations: ie: fettered.

                      The basic problem is, though: that it is via actual, not feigned, integrity and unfettered public discourse, not CIA or MOSSAD information machinations, wherein lies our best chance at this late date of making the transition to a viable, sane, in-harmony-with-the biosphere global cultural melange.

                      Yes, you are correct, oldster. My mind remains closed too often. However, I do think there was a natural disaster (earthquake), as is common in Japan. I also am privy to believe the resulting tsunami was not man-made. I see evidence that politics and finance directed the decision to remove the side of a mountain to build the plants so that water availability was cheaper. Also, design flaws…shown in the meltdowns.
                      The stone that stated not to build below a certain point was placed by the Japanese ancestors, whom witnessed the devastation of Japan tsunamis, in order to avoid catastrophes and human loss, though they had no knowledge of nuclear anything, nor the impact such a disaster would have. The nuclear disaster in Fukushima Japan is hard to swallow, by any definition- for it's consequences are for eternity. But, it is what it is. Caveat emptor.

                      HillBilly, I havent done so, but investigating the stuxnet issue seems very interesting.

                      Personally, intentional attack on Fukushima via man created tsunami seems quite a stretch.

                      But creating tsunamis via timed oceanic nuclear bombs was studied. If this was done for some reason, it doesnt mean perpetrators were targeting nuclear power plants

    Unfortunately officials wont say anything, they dont want to cause panic, they know that if they say anything official, people will get scared and stop consuming any kind of fish from the coast, which will cause economic damage to the zone. But people must take the necessary precautions, if there is mercury contamination people must be careful.

    Its the use of the public as 'disposable.'

  • media censorship, media bias, corporate ownership of media, government pressure on media… the number of us who understand Fukushima in its depths is very small compared to those who are just now becoming aware. The unaware are a vast number. so, if somebody had a depopulation agenda, they will probably realize success due to the lack of correct and appropriate guidance (as mandated in several agencies in government). while I understand it takes time to compile a strong case that no court will be able to throw out (Japan), I fear that time has come to file the world's largest environmental destruction suit the world has ever known. Now, please. We need to change the management team asap. I don't see that happening without a strong case being brought forward. Can't wait for the Navy sailors' case…

    • We Not They Finally

      I quaver at your optimism, even though I WANT optimism. The Navy sailors' case is so quashed from public view, that the chances of its going high profile may be dim. And radiation damage is so pervasive now, so medically lethal in so many locales (I mean even in the U.S. alone,) that it is daunting to even get any medical damage ascribed to its actual cause. Have even wondered if the so-called zika virus is some plot to be used for nefarious speculation — I mean it is supposed to cause birth defects, but have you ever heard of a mosquito bite causing birth defects? And how would they possibly know without studying some infected group and a control group for a really long time — it takes nine months even to produce a baby. But suddenly we learn that if you have a deformed baby, it's probably the zika virus (i.e. NOT radiation) and look no further. While the Navy sailors were clearly exposed to lethal radiation and are dying and they are not in the news at all! Meanwhile, babies have been born with brains outside of their head near Hanford and that is supposedly still speculative as to cause. Don't know what it will take to educate the public — just clear that no, the infrastructure for that is NOT in place.

      • Mack Mack

        Great comment WNTF. It is radiation that causes anencephaly, microcephaly, etc.

        Zika was usually thought of as a "harmless" virus.

        Now they're trying to link zika to Guillain-Barré syndrome, too.

        Interesting that agencies are clamoring for the billions of dollars leftover from Ebola research and Poof, heeeeere's Zika.

      • that is not optimism, no, that is born of the sense of urgency some of us have felt since day one and the cement-like inertia of news (fully and deeply honest news absent still; the lies continue) over the past five years watching TEPCO and JGov kill the Pacific Ocean, destroy lives and communities with their gangster attitude and hires, albeit, probably with help from chemtrail poisons and lying, thieving bankers – we hit the wall and there is no other choice than to take these pervs to court asap. I have no optimism about any of it.

    "Which is to say of the total fifteen PBq, 2.4, or roughly only 16%, fell on Japanese soil. If the totals are higher, still a smaller share of the total contamination will have fallen on Japan compared with the Pacific, with the largest portion falling on the west coast of the United States."

    No, the largest share fell on the Pacific Northwest, then along the Canadian/US border to the eastern edge of the Rockies, then down the East Coast and swirling around the mid-West. Following the jetstream, as has been described here incessantly since 3/11.

    The West Coast, from Alaska south to God knows where, is feeling the effects of the Pacific Ocean spray and radioactive BuckyBalls blowing in 300+ miles.

    And, after 5 years, this crap circling the globe every 40 days, does it even matter discussing where the radiation is blowing? It's all one giant atmospheric radioactive soup, getting denser and denser by the hour – for billions of years.

    • We Not They Finally

      Bob Nichols of Veterans Today (new radiation reports every Saturday) pretty much nails it. All over the U.S. in diverse locales, there are highs of 1,000 CPM-plus every week. Week after week after week. And that does not even include alpha, plutonium hot particles, and the like. And with many radiation monitors successively turned OFF to boot — Albuquerque, Miami, St. Louis, others. And what can we DO? It's numbing.

  • The negligent operators of Oyster Creek failed to inspect or replace a cooling hose for their Diesel Genset.

    Oyster Creek is the oldest nuclear plant in the United States. It went online on Dec. 23, 1969.

    The Diesel Gensets is a key safety feature. In event of local utility outage, the nuke plant will melt down unless it has emergency power to allow a structured shut down and cool down.

    Any mechanic / handy type knows that when dealing with old cars, at around 10 years max, one would simply replace all the cooling hoses, even if they don't look bad.

    Exelon just ignored this key cooling component, and IT DID result in a failure of the emergency backup system on Jan 4, 2016.

    Hiroaki Koide is admirable. He speaks out. Its interesting to see the struggles of individualism in Japan…which, like all nations, brainwashes the public into patriotic conformity to the state, to the leaders. Hiroaki Koide bravely maintains his individualism in the face of powerful forces of suppression corruption and ignorance

    Hiroaki Koide offers some ballpark numbers to assess the magnitude of Fukushima; Perhaps equal to 1000 Hiroshima bombs, about the same as Chernobyl, and maybe 1/60 of the bomb test era.
    "Of course Fukushima is an incredible tragedy, but considered from the earth as a whole it is a rather small accident."

    Koide estimates the scale of the tragedy for Japan; 140,000 km2 of land has been contaminated to an exclusion zone level of 40,000 Bq/m2 and as many as 10 million people are living in those zones.

    There is no definitive estimate of the Fukushima release. Here is a study which used three methods to arrive at an estimate, including measurement and computer models. It indicates that Fukushima released around 10,000 Hiroshima bombs of fallout.

    But the Fukushima nuclear reactor meltdown/explosion fallout contained a lot of plutonium. It was known from Chernobyl that starfish mortality is a sensitive bio-indicator for americium-241 which is a decay product of plutonium-241. Almost all the sea stars have died.

    • Ya Code, just reading yesterday that estimates was that from over 2000 atomic bomb tests…that 6 tons of plutonium were released…spread evenly over much of the globe.

      Fukushima released at least 3 tons of Plutonium, at one time in one spot.

      • Time Is Short Time Is Short

        2,000 tests. Say 35 pounds of fissile material per bomb. 70,000 pounds total. No way of knowing the exact percentage of plutonium, so say 50% to the high side, or 35,000 pounds of Pu, or 17.5 tons.

        Fukushima. 3,000,000 pounds of fuel rod. Say 35% was Pu, on the high side. 8,571,428 pounds of Pu, or 4,286 tons.

        If #4 was running MOX, maybe higher. We'll never really know, but all life on this planet is finished.

        • Time, the percent PU likely to be 3 to 6% at Fuku.

          The Common spent fuel pool was probably pretty OK, did not get out, yet.

          So my well researched take is that the average human will get just a fraction of a microgram. Fuku may kill an ocean or two and spin off effects, but will not kill humans directly via PU in lungs or livers.

          Well I should say, it won't kill all humans. Definitely some humans took doses far higher, and the clock is ticking.

          Here is the research and calcs, its pretty straight forward.

          http://nukeprofessional.blogspot.com/2015/02/how-long-does-plutonium-stay-in.html

          • Time Is Short Time Is Short

            The Pu may be only a small percentage, yes, but the enriched uranium – millions of tons of it aerosolized to atmosphere – containing the plutonium will do the same damage, just a little longer to incubate.

            We disagree on the CSFP. And there have been others…

            Either way, all our lives will be shorter. At least you're living in a Paradise.

            It seems to me that a lot of the damage done to life would have been from the initial Iodine releases that by now are probably undetectable. I am not surprised that the press releases are coming out now so people can't go outside with their Geiger counters and freak out on the west coast and try to evacuate in a big hurry! That would have been an economic and logistic disaster in itself, but to those on the west coast that consumed large amounts of radiation 5 years ago no amount of economic or logistic disaster can compare to the pain and suffering that they are experiencing now!

            • Well, Iodine is particularly nasty because it so massively travels to the thyroid, and then blasts away. Short half life means high number of Click Per Minute.

      Five Years After 3/11, How Much Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Radiation Was Released Into Ocean, Air, Groundwater, Storage Tanks, Compared To Hiroshima Bombs, And Comparison To Chernobyl
      http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/02/total-fukushima-radiation-released-into.html

      Who is right?

  • oldster

    In the interview, nuclear engineer Hiroaki Koide offers that he doesn't know how much radiation Fukushima has released, does not mention ongoing fission, yet implies that nuclear testing was far more harmful than Fukushima.

    This is not science, but politics.

    Again, as we have discussed here repeatedly, even if it was known how great a quantity and what variety of artificial radioactive material has been and will eventually be released from Fukushima, this does not disclose the actual harm that will be done. Radioactive buckeyballs, and ongoing weird physics and chemistry on site, MOX fuel explosions and meltdowns, and the annihilation post-Fukushima of much plant and animal life along the west coast of North America, are among the considerations that make questionable the contention that atmospheric testing was far worse.

    And the explanation offered as to why the US government is reluctant to
    get real about Fukushima is dubious: The US government lies about just about everything, and what it doesn't lie about it censors. The culture of deception that characterizes the US government is more deeply rooted than in wanting to avoid discussion of a sordid past.

      blinded by science. I rather think Hiroaki Koide is sincere, but blinded by science. It is evident he thinks of radiation in terms of a linear dose model, grouping all sources of radioactivity. This simplified scientific model has proven to be wrong from its inception, and never fully corrected.

      The truth is that Fukushima is the largest conceivable uncontrolled chemical experiment and on a global scale. It is simply impossible to know all the interactions. Short half life radioactive iodine is a murder weapon that kills without leaving a trace. Cesium gets everywhere, forming all kinds of salts. High specific activity radionuclides form point sources of ionization and voltage gradients, and can even co-opt natural radiation into a DNA destroying battalion.

      Science is great but mans mind is so very much more limited than he thinks. Too dumb to realize we are imbeciles, too proud to even think it

      HotR…well I was thinking on the smaller scale of Busbys micro antenna theory… if you allude to ocean warming secondary effects the micro antenna effect might obliquely be applicable if it killed so much plankton as to disrupt the cloud seeding from sulpherous aerosols, thus altering the wind and weather that is responsible for churning the upper ocean layers and releasing the solar heat

        Please post a bit more, about Busby's theory..

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          Heart…I think the solar radiation capture of the ocean is pretty high. So I would offhand doubt any amplification factor. The place to look, in my most humble opinion, is in the energy release phase

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              HotR, I suppose it gets very complicated. But here is a non scientific line of thought; All the solar energy that isnt reflected off the ocean surface will be absorbed. I would look at the reflectivity first then, and muse what effect if any, population of the surface with life would have on surface reflectivity, or your tiny bit of radionuclides. Im guessing inconsequential. Next I would consider the depth. Clear water allows the sun to heat deeper layers of the ocean. Every cycle of the day makes a convection of water near the surface which is probably primarily responsible for the release of stored energy back to the atmosphere and space. So I would imagine that waters heated more at the surface would cool faster. Im guessing this is consequential. Then you have the weather. The weather I think is very consequential in making waves, churning the top ocean levels and releasing the stored solar energy. It turns out the weather is hugely dependent on cloud seeding by bacterial and sulpherous plankton aerosols. Thus, from a common fools perspective, I would focus the attention on the release of energy rather than than amplified absorption, unless you are considering the depth factor. Thats IF you even want to keep trying to build a theory on Fukushima warming the ocean…which is a long shot. But Im not qualified at all…its only that all the qualified people rarely write here.

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                I should have said the daily cycle, not each cycle of the day. The total energy dynamic of the ocean is huge by human standards. I dont imagine man could heat the ocean if he turned all of his power plants specifically to do so. You can get some idea by looking at the area required to run mans energy needs entirely on solar cells. Fukushima; its about the poison, not about the energy

                  Scientists have gone down to explore and study these deep ocean hydrothermal vents and were completely surprised to find the areas immediately around the vents teeming with abundant life. The temperature of the water coming out of the vents has been measured at the source and it varies from just 68 degrees to as much as 600 degrees Fahrenheit. At sea level, water reaches the boiling point at 225 degrees Fahrenheit, but down in the deep ocean around hydrothermal vents where the water can reach well over the boiling point, the water coming out of the vents doesn’t boil! What prevents the scalding hot seawater from boiling (turning into vapor) is the extreme hydrostatic pressure of all the overlying water. What surprised scientists was that there was an entire ecosystem, a community of diverse life forms, absolutely thriving in conditions that were previously thought to be inhospitable to any kind of life.

          Busby had theorized that ingested Uranium particles cause photoelectric enhancement which increases the genotoxic effect of natural background gamma radiation by 500 to 1000 times. Additionally, photoelectric enhancement is not limited to radioactive isotopes but involves all heavy atoms e.g. stable platinum particles from catalytic converters are similarly theoretically capable of enhancing the effects of natural gamma radiation if ingested.

                    How to turn background radiation against you;
                    'Their (Busby et al) theory invokes a well-known process called the photoelectric effect. This is the main mechanism by which gamma photons with energies of about 100 kiloelectronvolts (keV) or less are blocked by matter: the photon transfers its energy to an electron in the atom's electron cloud, which is ejected into the surroundings.
                    An atom's ability to stop photons by this mechanism depends on the fourth power of its atomic number – the number of protons in its nucleus – so heavy elements are far better at intercepting gamma radiation and X-rays than light elements.'

      Not surprised that US Medical Doctors find Cesium-137 in Urine of Multiple Patients.

      Uses of cesium-137:
      “This isotope of cesium can also be used to treat some kinds of cancer. One procedure is to fill a hollow steel needle with cesium-137. The needle can then be implanted into a person's body. The cesium-137 gives off radiation inside the body. That radiation kills cancer cells and may help cure the disease.

      When a hollow steel needle filled with cesium-137 is implanted into a person's body, the isotopes's radiation can kill cancer cells. “

      “Cesium-137 has also been approved for the irradiation of certain foods. The radiation given off by the isotope kills bacteria and other organisms that cause disease. Foods irradiated by this method last longer before beginning to spoil. Wheat, flour, and potatoes are some of the foods that can be preserved by cesium-137 irradiation”

        I asked an oncologist for a radiological study on a biopsy of a lung tumor. You'd think an oncologist would want to know what might have caused someone's rapidly growing tumor.

        No, didn't want to hear of it, didn't want to discuss it, couldn't get out of the office fast enough.

        That told me what I wanted to know.

      • That would take large scale testing of food, milk and other liquids, much like they did in Soviet Russia after Chernobyl.

        In the US, it is all secret. We are very lucky to get a couple fish tested once in a while. All of the tuna tested in 2012 had increased levels of radioactive cesium… but did that spark more testing? Nope. Not a bit.

        Veee vill keep disss a secret.

    • Doc, I didn't see any easy to get at figures for Cs137 found in human, the data I mean, is it there, hiding?

      Also the thyroid thing, placed in a Cesium article, will confuse many people. Maybe should be part of a separate article, or just linked.

      • Updated it to make it clear that radioactive iodine from Fukushima was MEASURED and FOUND in the US, in many ways and places.

        By extension, cesium also was there, but how much got here is secret, along with plutonium, strontium, and hundreds of others.

        You cannot get one radioative poison without hundreds of others. And they don't all magically disappear overnight.

        That is the point of the article, despite focusing mainly on radioactive cesium.

        MUCH more testing is needed, bottom line.

        Prediction; very little or none will be done, because HUGE profits are at stake.

    As a TATAL teller (of which there are far too few) I suspect that

    thermal loading of the oceans can be altered by adding stuff that is

    TATAL, wherein the flora and fauna are no longer in ample amounts to

    tap into some of the sun's energy, hence causing an increase in

    caloric loading of the upper layers of the water column.

    ..Now consider the atmosphere. Not really an ecosystem per se as we think of it, yet on a microbial level, we are very much dependent on a healthy one.

    Precipitation patterns may very well be in phase with naturally occurring micro floral/fungal/fauna nano stuff; clouds seeded from life itself…….

    I understand physical changes to gases and such to the atmosphere, but I have no clue as to how biology and the atmosphere are linked beyond anything even I can imagine.

    We talk of the Earth as a living breathing organism. Well…does it make sense to spew TATAL shit any where or any when?

    We have the knowledge at the atomic level (quantum for that matter!) to completely re tool this planet.

    But we should do it for all, not for a few smuggly living in a cave or dome.

The test results have been mapped, so if you use Google Earth you will see the results clearly presented. Excellent and commendable that this work has been done by Eager Lab Assistants.

    What if everything you believed was a lie? False Reality.

    What if you woke up tomorrow and everything you had thought was true was a deception? A deception formed by people that stood to profit from your ignorance. Not just on one small area but every facet of your existence. Would you want to know? Or, would you be content with the life you had before you discovered the truth? Could you close your eyes and act as if nothing ever happened? What if you could see the ways that you have been deceived and the way that those that came before you were made to believe a lie? How valuable would the truth become? Would it make you change your habits? your routines? the way you talk or think or speak? Would it impact you or would you brush it off and carry on with business as usual?

      Yes GOM, this realization came to me when I was about 14. I could see all the movies I loved and the news I watched was designed to make me believe the lies our government and media spew! I refused to watch the "boob tube" for a good 25 years. Now I watch to see what lies they want me to believe, it IS better to know! I was watching when I saw a reactor explode 5 years ago! I took some precautions but if I didn't see it I wouldn't have even known.

      I know that most of what is going on is a lie. I'm with George Carlin in that there is a club and I'm not in it. I don't go to church, but I believe in God. I don't expect my situation here will change. But the afterlife, well God may surprise some of us. Ya never know. From what I read in the bible I am going to hell, I assume. But, then again, who knows if the bible wasn't messed with.

      Would I want to know? Ha. Like there is so much bullshit going on. The people giving us our credit ratings and shit are the biggest crooks in the world. The insurance companies got a big share of the bailouts – what they weren't insured? Fuck this place. And yet, love thy neighbor (who is probably trying to get in your wife's pants) I don't have a girlfriend. It keeps all my neighbors from coming over acting like they are my friends. Do I have issues? Man, are u kidding? I can't afford issues. I'm not in the club

  • Soros is a main puppet master, an open advocate of "new world order"

    Soros’ offshore companies may not pay U.S. taxes (his spokesperson, Michael Vachon, declined to answer that question), but the billionaire donates lots of money to Democrats who write and enforce the tax laws. In the 2004 presidential election, he contributed $24 million to George Bush’s opponents. He is the largest donor to Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the presidency, plunking down $8 million, so far. He has donated “up to $1 million” to the Clinton Foundation. And Secretary of State Clinton’s emails reveal that Soros has lobbied her on behalf of his interests, which encircle the globe, mostly in the dark.

          Just heard that Donald Trump thinks Japan should have the nuclear bomb.

          • Why shouldn't they? I mean why should USA be forced into a nuclear war with China after a China/Japan scuffle or all out war.

            Not a big fan of nuke bombs, but they are here, can't deny that. Japan needs to start defending itself, and be less of a lap dog to USA.

              Hello, and welcome to Justice. I'm Judge Jeanine Pirro. Thanks for being with us tonight.

              Hillary Clinton cannot be President of the United States, and if the establishment including law enforcement does not stop her – you have to.

              This is not about politics. It's about you, your family, and this great nation. It’s about preventing people who have no regard for the law, or you, for that matter, from running this country.

              At a time when just about everybody is fed up with establishment politicians, when two outsiders are winning epic contests against preordained presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton is still in line to be coronated the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

              How can the woman – who is under criminal investigation – who knows she's under criminal investigation, but lies to your face saying that she's not – continue on her path to the White House?

              The majority of Americans believe, and are right, that Hillary Clinton is untrustworthy, dishonest and a liar. Hillary has danced with federal prosecutors for most of her career. She knows how to conceal, delete and destroy evidence – remember those pesky missing Rose Law Firm files? Not to mention 30,000 deleted emails… She lies so much she doesn't know the difference between the truth and a lie, and, like most liars, can’t even keep her stories straight.

                  "Moreover, the system is completely rigged, such that you actually do not need to stultify—or buy—that many people. The media frenzy around the question ‘what makes productrump so popular?’ misses the point entirely. The real question is: ‘how has the corporate thought machine succeeded in producing the illusion that productrump is so popular? The United States has known many dummies in recent history, including a clueless B-grade Hollywood actor and the ignorant loser son of a Texas oil tycoon-turned-politician. Like the current moron, they were just as much products of the system, packaged and sold by the corporate idiocracy, which seeks to keep people dumb and distracted in order to favor business interests and the powers that be. Its initial motto, ‘make them dumb and keep them down,’ has developed over time into a powerful mantra: ‘make them even dumber so they keep themselves !’"

                    • mattyI

                      "Millions of people around the country—and around the world—are asking themselves the same simple question: how could such a blathering dummy be in a position to become the next president of the United States? There is no need to mention any names here, of course, because the dimwit is all too well known."
                      the simpleton’s name has been one of the most oft repeated on all mass media platforms in this election cycle. Let us not, then, utter the dummy’s name but instead call for a general moratorium on it. It is time to recognize it for what it is—a product of the media-money complex—and talk only of productrump, or more simply product rump.

                      The term ‘dummy,’ like its synonyms, might sound disparaging to some, but I use it here in a purely technical sense. I am referring to the mindless puppet used by ventriloquists to channel their voice. In and of themselves, dolls like this have no original thoughts or things to say. This is precisely what makes them ideal vehicles for other ideas and voices. In the realm of administered politics and for-profit media, dummies are the spokespeople for the corporatocracy, pseudo-democracy and spectacle culture."

  • Mack Mack

    Ian Goddard said no worries about radiation in the Pacific Ocean/West Coast and in fish:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOYHjDpu_RY

    What say you?

    • unincredulous unincredulous

      The potassium arguments I ignore because of homeostasis. The polonium 210 is very poisonous. The graph showing polonium 210 may have merit.

      I'm thinking about the bomb testing fallout. The graph showed the increasing catch of fish while the fallout from bombs was increasing. But probably the efficiency of fishing technology was increasing dramatically during this period.

      All I know is that all the sea life is dying.

      Typhoon Haiyan in 2013 video I saw said that the ocean temperature in the typhoon's track was 89 degrees for three hundred feet depth. This warm blob they talk about was it hotter than that? That seems pretty darn hot. I'm mixed about the water temperature thing because El ninos before didn't wipe out everything.

      Don't scientists do statistics analysis on the obvious fact that everything is dying after Fukushima meltdowns?

      What might be released from a nuclear power plant that is not released from a nuclear bomb? If I was directing scientists to do their job, I'd say find that out right NOW!

      • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

        how does homeostasis explain away potassium? To the contrary, it keeps us constantly internally radiated to 60,000 bq/m3. The way to explain away K-40 is to observe that despite any scientific theory in vogue at the moment…and make no mistake, science is always changing…life did fine with this radioactive isotope for countless generations. Not so for man made fallout. The specific activity is certainly one glaringly different aspect of the chemicals

        • unincredulous unincredulous

          Yes, that's why I ignore it. Homeostasis and we are fine with whatever. Unless an asteroid hits and multiplies our background potassium-40 level like ten billion times per square meter. Even then, probably the asteroid hit would be the big danger. Oh, and the media saying there are lots of background asteroids and having them in our atmosphere is not an immediate threat…

      • Mack Mack

        I wonder if damage is being done to the body within the 30 days the EPA claims it takes for potassium to get into homeostatic control?

        Here are some good quotes on potassium that shed some light…

        > "The major natural source of radioactivity in plant tissue is potassium: 0.0117% of the naturally occurring potassium is the unstable isotope potassium-40 (40K)."

        So, .0117% of NATURALLY OCCURRING POTASSIUM is the UNSTABLE ISOTOPE known as K40

        > "It follows that the additional radiation exposure due to eating a banana lasts only for a few hours after ingestion, i.e. the time it takes for the normal potassium content of the body to be restored by the kidneys. The EPA conversion factor, on the other hand, is based on the mean time needed for the isotopic mix of potassium isotopes in the body to return to the natural ratio after being disturbed by the ingestion of pure 40K, which was assumed by EPA to be 30 days."

        So, when K40 is ingested, it can take 30 days to return to the "natural ratio" of potassium

        Am I interpreting that correctly?

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana_equivalent_dose

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      Goddard is probably in the ballpark for the numbers. Although the science literature includes the possibility of reaching 30 bq/m3. But Goddard relies on mainstream science, which has been proven wrong by epidemiologists that have done real studies of real people and animals, not just ICRP LNT model mathematical extrapolations of hypothetical energy deposition in water balloons.

      Goddard falls into the same trap as every scientist and citizen out there…and what a trap; grouping all radioactive sources and assuming they have the same biological effect. He compares tritium to C-137 and k-40 directly. "despite myths to the contrary, natural radionuclides are no less dangerous per unit of energy radiated." This is demonstrably not true. See the work of Bandazhevsky and others who have dedicated years to the study of Chernobyl. The ECRR finds the estimates from the ICRP model to be off by a factor of 300 or more. Its not at all surprising, considering that one chemical is natural to biology, whereas the new chemical is completely different, usually thousands if not millions of times more radioactive per mass and never encountered before by life on earth….

      • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

        I would be inclined to agree that the levels of cesium found in California fish is hardly a concern. But this is an incomplete and completely misleading picture. Much of the fallout was in the form of 2 um alloys of fuel containing millions of highly radioactive atoms. These point sources of radiation packed in super dense heavy metal nano spheres are completely unnatural, and could be compared to sharp broken glass on the beach, the sand of which is the same silica material in a benign form. You can see the point sources in this radiograph

        http://www.haa.pitt.edu/sites/default/files/MorizumiFlier%20image.jpg

        Moreover, the message so convincingly delivered by Goddard; that Fukushima radiation is insignificant and totally inconsequential, flies in the face of evidence to the contrary. Dead animals are everywhere…but why? For one thing, the water has already been filtered by plankton which lies dead on the ocean floor. The radioactivity in the sediment of the Black sea was thousands of times higher than the open water for the same reason. Also the most potent radioactive fallout came by air a long time ago and has since decayed away. These death blows by super toxins have affected the chain of life. Animals could be starving while hardly a becquerel is found and myopic science will blithely proclaim there is no effect from 10,000 dirty Hiroshima bombs.

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          If Goddard is so sure Fukushima is not the cause of anything, one wonders why he shows no interest in what IS causing these unprecedented mortalities. But I can guess; warm water. Or sometimes cold water. That is seemingly the only answer that science has for any catastrophe, despite the problem that they have no science to back up their catch all theory.

          The idea that all radiation sources are not comparable is seen even in our status quo science. Mainly this is due to the differences in alpha beta and gamma radiation.

          remember this when listening to Goddard totally dismiss the danger from 4 becquerels of radiation; two becquerels is the lethal dose for the blue winged butterfly larva and a fraction of a becquerel is deforming. Of course the larva is very small.

          It could be noted that all of these counter arguments to Goddards well delivered mainstream science have been rather exhaustively discussed here before. They were met with considerable flack, I dont know why. But if people dont get on these points, they will forever lose the argument to the likes of Buesseler and mouthpieces like Goddard

    Regarding Dr. G and CS earlier posting on wall thickness:

    According to pages 7-10 in this PDF report from Tepco in 2012, the thickness of outer reactor building walls at Unit 4 varied from a maximum of 1000 mm on 1st floor to as little as 250 mm in some sections of the upper floors:

    http://www.tepco.co.jp/en/nu/fukushima-np/images/handouts_120830_03-e.pdf

    Unit 6 may be a little different being a Mark II design.

    Page 6 of this post-911 computer simulation document about airborne attacks by commercial airliners says this about reactor wall thickness:

    "Boiling water reactor (BWR) containments typically consist of a steel containment vessel surrounded by a reinforced concrete shield that typically has a thickness of four feet or greater and is housed within the reactor building. The primary containment of a BWR is typically one- third the diameter of a PWR containment. The location and dimensions of the primary containment inside the reactor building make it an extremely difficult structure to hit with an aircraft."

    http://www.nei.org/corporatesite/media/filefolder/EPRI_Nuclear_Plant_Structural_Study_2002.pdf

    I seriously doubt their conclusions on air attacks, especially for the old Mark 1 reactors. I can predict several weak points that an airplane dive (maybe even a small plane) would lead to a nuclear meltdown. However I am not unpatriotic enough to detail those weak points.

    Radiation-induced depression looms on the horizon
    “As radiation seeps from Fukushima, people will need to be on the defense for radiation-induced depression.

    “Long distance radiation harms the physical body primarily through free radical damage. Free radicals are molecules which have unpaired electrons, and when the body is exposed to radiation, huge amounts of free radicals are produced in the system. "In fact," Dr. Barry Sears writes, "the best example of a rapid overproduction of free radicals occurs in victims exposed to atomic radiation."

    “Radiation directly affects the brain through free radical attack. Free radicals cause massive damage in the body, disrupting chemical processes by robbing electrons from other molecules throughout the organism. Free radical damage has a long list of symptoms, and one of those side effects is fat oxidation. Dr. Barry Sears notes: ‘the brain is exceptionally vulnerable to free radical attack. Fifty per cent of the dry weight of the brain is lipid, and about one-third of the lipid is composed of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids making it the most likely target for free radical attack.’ When oxidization alters essential fatty acids, it affects the very composition of the brain itself.

    “Radiation induces depression, not only by attacking the brain directly, but by promoting undesirable hormonal imbalances in the brain.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar PraisingJesus

      “…Ionizing radiation affects health when it causes changes in the cells of the human body. It does this by breaking the chemical bonds that hold together groups of atoms called molecules.
      “For example, DNA molecules, which contain a person's genetic information, control the chemical and physical functions of human cells. If damaged, the DNA molecules are able to repair the damage in most cases; but in some instances, damage to DNA molecules will affect the ability of the cells to do their work and to pass information to new cells….

      “In men, a single dose of 15 rem can cause temporary sterility, and a single dose between 400 and 500 rem can cause permanent sterility. In women, a total dose of 400 rem received over two or three exposures has been known to cause permanent sterility….”

    Towards decommissioning Fukushima: 'Seeing' boron distribution in molten debris

  • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

    "Stainless steel tubes filled with boron carbide are used to control energy output in boiling water reactors, including at Fukushima Daiichi, as boron absorbs neutrons resulting from splitting atoms. With such control rods functioning properly, nuclear fission occurs at a steady rate. In an extreme situation, such as during the Fukushima accidents, where overheated vapors come in contact with the rods, boron reacts with surrounding materials like stainless steel to create molten debris."

    • What happens when you subject boron to neutron radiation? It gets activated; and becomes radioactive, then decays…

      Boron (B) naturally occurs isotopes, 10B and 11B, the latter of which makes up about 80% of natural boron. There are 14 radioisotopes that have been discovered, with mass numbers from 6 to 21, all with short half-lives, the longest being that of 8B, with a half-life of only 770 milliseconds (ms) and 12B with a half-life of 20.2 ms. All other isotopes have half-lives shorter than 17.35 ms, with the least stable isotope being 7B, with a half-life of 150 yoctoseconds (ys). Those isotopes with mass below 10 decay into helium (via short-lived isotopes of beryllium for 7B and 9B) while those with mass above 11 mostly become radioactive carbon.

    Ah, the nuclear era, modernity, progress and all that:

    From Amitav Ghosh's little 1999 book COUNTDOWN contrasting the assumptions and attitudes between India and Pakistan on nuclear weapons: "On 11 May 1998, the Indian government tested five nuclear devices at the Pokaran site….The tests occasioned great outpourings of joy….festivities and ….sweetmeats on the streets. There was talk about sending dust from the test site around the country so the whole nation could partake in the glow of the blasts….Some were said to be thinking of building a monument at Pokaran, a 'shrine of strength' that could be visited by pilgrims."

    The impressive Fukushima site is another monument to nuclear enthusiasm, a shrine of consequence, which is better remote viewed than visited, and the fertile source of many fables and incalculable sorrows.

  • I have worked for the GE Nuclear Division and was trained by them as a senior reactor operator. I have two observations – (1) operators at Daiichi acted just the way I was trained to do (i.e., keep core covered with water and use seawater as a last resort); and (2) GE reactor building secondary containment walls are thin metal structures. A hydrogen explosion easily could have blown them apart as was seen at Daiichi. Nuclear power is a BAD IDEA. The world would have to be nuts to build any more nuclear plants.

    • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

      Hello.

    • Saint, agree with you, but ONLY for the top floor, above the spent fuel pool, where the blow out panels are. That is also where the hydrogen, which is lighter than air, would end up.

      But the key question is this… if the reactor is producing massive quantities of hydrogen due to lack of any water, and the zirc coating is BURNING, what prevents the hydrogen from exploding INSIDE the reactor?

      • Time Is Short Time Is Short

        The only thing that might prevent hydrogen from blowing up inside a containment structure, either a building or cylinder, is if there is enough pressure to blow the combusting gas away from the source.

        If there is just a big structure full of hydrogen gas sitting there and not under great pressure, the entire gas concentration will blow.

        If there is a gas explosion in someone's kitchen, the kitchen will blow up, but the gas at the leak is under pressure, so will keep the combustion away from the leak. Most of the time…

        It's when combustion runs back down the pipe things get worse quick. Like lighting a can of hairspray with a lighter. You'd better hope you get the valve closed before it finds its' way back into the can.

        Hydrogen itself will self-combust on contact with oxygen. An extremely dangerous gas, radioactive or not.

      • Yes, very thin top two floors designed to blow out. And on a diet too. 🙂

        Drank a bit too much o that prune juice and it all just blew out..

        Didn't even need any hydrogen, and those metal reinforcing bars, well, they just parted like moses parting the red sea.

        No problem see… you want to bring a building down, just use prune juice.

        Just don't focus on the lower floors facing the ocean in building 3.

        That wasn't no prune juice.

        • Time Is Short Time Is Short

          Remember, from eyewitnesses there in the control room, before #3 blew, they heard a horrible scraping, screeching noise, and they said the reactor collapsed in on itself before any explosion, like a bad sci-fi movie.

          With all that MOX fuel, what happened at #3 is beyond anything man knows about nuclear physics. Blow up enough uranium and plutonium and we seem to be approaching interdimensional physics.

          Let's pray that never happens again.

          Now, how many NPP's around the world are running MOX fuel that weren't designed for it, and we're not being told about it?

  • Hit the gym this morning for a good workout. I reflected that even at this pretty well healed gym, I saw only 1 or 2 people out of say 400 that I would consider "thin" or even "normal weight, in shape".

    And they were trying hard, lots of cardio, weight training.

    Its the food people. What else could it be? They are trying hard and still not even 1% can achieve "being in shape".

    Its the food.

    Then, after planting a heirloom crop of all non GMO products into the greenhouse and planning the direct plant for later today…..I saw the

    National Academies Press saying that GMO /GE crops are "pretty much OK". They also claim that they back up their assertions with DATA.

    THEY DO NOT back up their assertions with data, nor with links to the referenced studies. They use weasel words to an amazing degree. They take pot shots at "natural methods".

    They express concern and dismay that food testing is hard because it is complicated to increase the potential bad stuff in the food, to get quicker test results…and instead, OH MY GOD, they sometimes have to resort to feeding the actual GMO / Roundup treated food to the animal. The absurdity of it all!

    Then they complain, that these "whole food" tests are kind of a joke, because you can't be sure who is funding them, and because we don't know how long of a test is good enough (90 days is a long test in their book)that we just maybe should use that type of "whole food…

    I think today’s workshop by Keshe was one of the very best for explaining where this technology is going. The future is bright. Well worth your time if you still have questions about this technology. At the 2:16:30 mark, he explains why the West {US and EU nations} opposes this technology. He also talked about new health discoveries, cures, vaccines and decontamination. Then there was the arrangement with one of the major world banks. People in Italy will be able to purchase a Magrav unit {energy unit} for 10 Euros a month spread over 50 months. Not bad considering the fact that they should save about 100 Euros a month on their energy bill. The Foundation expects to hire around 45,000 people to work in the factories in Italy alone. Also, a Keshe manufacturing company in Arizona has opened its doors. On another front, there was another very good article in Veterans Today confirming once again that this technology is real and that 1000’s of ordinary people around the world are building the Magrav energy units and health devices . Actually, these units a pretty easy to make, a cave man could do it.
