24 comments to PBS: Police officers ordered to work outside in Fukushima with radiation at 4.4 microsieverts/hour – “They have told us we are ok so we just need to trust them” (VIDEO)
I give thanks to PBS tonight. I can hardly believe it. I quit sending money to PBS 30 years ago, when I first sensed they were going corporate-wall-st-positive. I say thanks that they can do a story this honest once again. It has been a long time.
There is NO safe level of ionizing radiation. Never was. Never will be.
So, thank you, PBS, for moving us a little closer to that truth.
Joseph S. Tanious, CFA, market strategist for J.P. Morgan Funds…thinks that the markets are going to continue to rise for the next year and a half, or so…I guess I want to add, “If there will still be a world in which those markets can rise!” Or if there will be anyone not too sick to care anymore!
Quotes from PBS video:(my thought)
“The government wasn’t releasing data…” (Same in USA and Canada)
“Almost criminal…” (IS criminal)
“Less radiation IS less harmful…” (true!!!)
“People should trust the data…” (true)
“The democratization of science…” (interesting concept)
Only independent people are doing anything worth a ‘darn’ when it comes to testing.
time stamp 5:41. he says that it’s almost criminal to manufacture geiger counters that don’t work properly. so i figure, it must be criminal to cause a “nuk accident” of this scale. lots of people will perish ‘coz of cancer and other diseases it will cause.
Nice to see they are using the Inspector. Now we know where they are all going with the priority to japan.
Also, WCG reported her readings were normally above .300 something. Notice what this bro says at about 8:12 min into this excellent video report. He speaks to getting back to UNDER .300 levels indicating that these would be the normal levels.
Compared to those readings he is getting there, we have not seen anything yet. Really humbles us here and even though our readings are higher than what most are reporting here on enenews, it tells us that our readings are not as high as those in japan.
What it will be like in another years time may not be nice.
When Joi Ito talks about how Safecast started taking on a life of its own, where everyone started communicating and forming a network, it reminded me of Enenews, actually.
This site has definitely become more than just an average information site; it’s more of a community, where you feel like you know people intimately. And it’s become by far the most informative website, in my opinion, about what’s going on not just with Fukushima, but with the whole system that cause this to occur in the first place…
Glad to find so many people who think and feel the same way I do!
I don’t know why you would ever go to Japan and get close to that power plant without a mask. You have no idea if you are breathing other kinds of isotopes into your body with portable equipment to take readings with. PBS finally releases data on the matter and I am proud to say Safecasts efforts are greatly welcome. The fact they need to mention now is the projected impact on human health of 8 months moderate dose of radiation and how high projected levels could become with additional fission events. The scale of the task is not just mapping hot areas it will involve a massive mobilization of the medical community to study the frequency of reports of decreased immunity and infant health declines. At least they can document the effects of a slow burning nuclear population eradication. How much plutonium is the population expected to ingest? We don’t know is not an answer I want to hear anymore.
TO JAPAN POLICE IN FUKUSHIMA: You need protective suits Full Breathing equipment, and The Plant and your bosses need to put up Lead shielding checkpoints to protect you from the radiation Dragon breathing down your back
as a uk motorcyclist i have after many years grow to love the police here in the uk…..and the thought of them being put in harms way .. well ….grrrrr!!! step in japaniaea government and stop this right now!!!!
ps any chance of losing the points??
These guys blogged that trip some time ago and they said at the time they found something (near where the police were) that blew their minds and they sent it to be anlyzed. But I never found out what it was.
ENENews receives no funding from anyone or anything, except 1) People who donate via the button below, and 2) Google, who pays for the two ad spots. Thanks to all who have donated or are planning on doing so, it's nice to know people appreciate your work.
