Transcript Summary

Speaker: Christopher Busby, visiting professor at the University of Ulster’s school of biomedical sciences and scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, a think-tank –Bloomberg

At 0:15 in & 3:55 in

  • Fukushima certainly worse than Chernobyl… Similar quantities of radioactivity released… But more people affected in Japan disaster

At 1:35 in

  • Japanese mothers reporting that children showing all the signs of cesium-137 contamination

At 3:15 in

  • I cant sit back and let this back and forth go on like some silly tennis match between us and the pro nuke scientists trying to save the industry from collapse, while all the time children are getting more sick and dying… We absolutely know what is going to happen… We can see from what happened in Chernobyl…

    I have no idea how to make a donation.

  • markww markww

    Do a donation site in English Chris so we can help

    Mark in Hou Tx

  • And suddenly a lightbulb ignited…

    to be cont.

  • I told you all something was very wrong on site last night…

    Here last night Crane falls on top of reactor 3.
    (crane likely used for cooling)…

    Later on in the night: Fogging (from reactor 3?). YOU DECIDE…

    Later in the day:

    Huge Radiation Spike in Tokyo…

    News As of current: Cam is down

    Main Point…

    Proof of genocide…

    • Anyone think the cam is down because the radiation leak last night…

      My guess is they use the crane for their Trickling technique to cool the reactor fuel…

      So My assumption… Reactor 3 now has no cooling at all…

      • Crane falls at :45 seconds in. That does not look good to me either. It looks to like the ground is starting to swallow things up.

        “Anyone think the cam is down because the radiation leak last night…”

        that or sustained winds strong enough to knock over a giant metal crane… lol

        • IDk I noticed lighting anomalies on the cam… I think the mox ate it.

          • socal stukncali

            taco do u ever hear yourself talk? you think the mox ate the camera? You seem to know a lot about nuclear energy judging by all the statements you make. So what’s your educational background? Did you major in nuclear engineering?

            @stukncali, how do you know from whom taco is speaking? Instead of attacking the messenger, discuss the ideas, if you can.

          • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

            From whom taco is getting information, or for whom taco is speaking. The funny thing about this blog, for all we know the pros and cons can be written by the same person, and the dialogue framed for whatever motive or by several different or conflicting motives.

    This is totally off-topic, but I am really upset to hear that the state of Georgia decided to execute Troy Davis, despite overwhelming evidence (and worldwide protests)proclaiming his innocence, or at least showing a huge lack of evidence to prove that he murdered a police officer.

    I actually believe (morally) that some people deserve to die for the crimes they commit, but when I see something like this happen, it makes me much more against the death penalty. It shows clearly that an innocent person can spend years in prison and then be put to death because of the faultiness of the legal system.

    If I had faith in God I might be able to see the good in this, but unfortunately I can’t say that. It just makes me more against the system that causes so much injustice to humanity, which brings us back on-topic to Fukushima, where more people are suffering from an unjust system that puts money above human life…

    Sorry, rambling, I’m just upset…

      Many very guilty people are enjoying lavish lives as well, a consequences of having one of the fairest, and sometimes most corrupt, judicial systems in the world.
      In regard to these cameras at fuku. I watched go many hours. I see nothing change. What are they doing there????

    I lived in Japan until recently and wondered how we could find out where they were incinerating radioactive debris. I found very little information about it in English. Just before I left, I started to become suspicious of food from Kumamoto prefecture. I just felt kind of gross after eating some produce from there, and one of their melons I bought had a noticeable “static electricity” smell. They say you can’t smell radiation, but I’ve noticed that smell in the air before, and am just curious what it is.

    One thing I hope Busby takes into consideration is the taste of these tablets and the ease of feeding them to little kids, who can be very picky. I hope they can make them taste like candy so parents won’t have a problem getting little kids to take them.

  • What bothers me is that Professor Busby is a legitimate fellow. He is respected by his own British government, having done work for them.

    And what bothers me is he is accusing Japanese of genocide by shipping nuclear waste south to be burned to spread radiation around so that there is no test group available for litigation purposes.

    What bothers me is he is probably right.

    Who incinerates nuclear waste?
