Frank E. Daulton, Ph.D. — Professor of Economics and Linguistics at Ryukoku University in Kyoto — interviewed by Linda Moulton Howe.

At 7:20 in

[... T]he only way I can understand how the government could be under-reporting blatantly the data today is that in the future, they are going to rationalize it by saying, ‘We did not feel it was in the country’s best interests to know right away. It would create economic chaos and a lot of trouble throughout Japan.’

It will become common knowledge that the contamination has come far beyond what is being reported in the media [...]

  • The delusion of dilution. Precedents of The Fogging…

    Understanding the dangers imposed to United States coastal communities in light of the march 2011 Fukushima crisis.

    Fog is a collection of water droplets or ice crystals suspended in the air at or near the Earth’s surface. While fog is a type of a cloud, the term “fog” is typically distinguished from the more generic term “cloud” in that fog is low-lying, and the moisture in the fog is often generated locally (such as from a nearby body of water, like a lake or the ocean, or from nearby moist ground or marshes).

    Fog begins to form when water vapor condenses into tiny liquid water droplets in the air. The main ways water vapor is added to the air: wind convergence into areas of upward motion, precipitation or virga falling from above, daytime heating evaporating water from the surface of oceans, water bodies or wet land, transpiration from plants, cool or dry air moving over warmer water, and lifting air over mountains. Water vapor normally begins to condense on condensation nuclei such as dust, ice, and salt in order to form clouds.

    Q. Does fog have the ability to capture radioactive nuclei?
    A. Yes…

    The dispersion of radioactive elements has been a most feared concentrated form via Pacific Ocean currents… In short the radiation is being carried to the United States, and Canadian shores, in masse’.

    Is your family safe from these elements?
    That is the million-dollar question…

    The most Recent reports indicate that very large amounts of radioactive materials, rather than being dilluted through the whole ocean’, ‘Currents’ are keeping the majority of the hazardous material concentrated. Flowing west to the shores of the continental United States citizens have yet to be alerted to the dangers imposed by the googles of terabecquerels steadily creeping towards our shores.

    “Understanding the Bequeral”
    One Bq is defined as the activity of a quantity of radioactive material in which one nucleus decays per second.

    While the term ‘Terabequerel’ refers to a staggering multiple of the bequeral “Tera” is a figure of 1×1012 or + 1,000,000,000,000 bequerels of radiation per part.

Beginning on the ‘KuroSiwo Current’; A message from Japan had found its resting place in the hands of an Eugene Oregon resident, midway through the Californian current. 6500km. only 20 months after the bottle was originally released.

    This is a clear indication that amongst rain. Fog and snow, will be impacting our daily…

      Nicely written…+100

      I have been out of sorts a bit with the Fuku flu…still alive though…*;-)

      I forwarded your comments to my older brother who is onboard and a former English teacher.

      As you say…the metaphor of the frog is quite apt. And it is an anecdote as you describe because frogs really DON’T stay in slowly heating water…they will jump out if the container allows them.

      We as as the naked ape species however have many members lacking that survival skill. For example I can’t understand at all why the Daulton doctor in Japan feels it safe enough to wait until next year to send his family abroad? And with a small baby? And he will remain to support them in Australia? Insanity!!! I hope he has bought an iron-clad life insurance policy, because he will be probably be dead in a year and his family may not survive staying until early next year either.

      Take a lesson from a frog doc! Jump now! Anywhere 1,000s of miles away will give your family a better chance than in Japan. Japan is finito…the inhabitants are soon to be the walking dead.

      On second thought maybe I am as dumb as Daulton with my family staying put 6,000 miles away in the Northern Hemisphere. If I had a crystal ball and knew for sure the Northern Hemisphere was doomed I would try to save some of my younger descendants to the Southern Hemisphere. But like the doctor in Japan economics dictates you can only do what you can afford. I guess it has always been that way for the human race. The weak die and the strong (or the ones who have better resources) survive.

      Perhaps though it won’t matter where you run though…the epicenter is horrible, but there is no escaping air currents, even in the Southern Hemisphere.

      For me….Party like it is 1969…

        Yes,…FUKU,…the great equalizer! The rich may have MORE OPTIONS,…true,…but all their options are, or will be, irradiated soon! Also,….ever study the introduction of diabetes into a country? It’s the rich, with their ‘delectable things’, who get obese, pasty, and diabetic first! The foods they love,…meats of the finest cuts,….. caviar,….culture shock coming,…for the poor AND THE RICH.

        For me SP,..it’s party like it’s 1979! Swear,….I don’t remember 79′ or much of 80′ until John Lennon was killed. That woke us all up I think. Too bad we went back to sleep!

        Looks like I was a little out of reply..please forgive me as I have been/remain a touch ill.

        But the fog comments also struck me as so apt especially since there were so many arguments earlier by posters who kept “correcting” guesses about the smoke vapors and finally someone mentioned that the fog/and or clouds was undoubtedly highly impregnated with radiation from the water off Fuku beach.

        But the ramifications for west coast folks (and anyone who has regular fog) is freaking scary. Radiation floats in the atmosphere awaiting something to bind to….voila…instant transportation to the humans waiting below!

        You will never feel the same about fog again…

        The old 1958 guide I quoted several days ago mentioned that desert places are the absolute best places to be living when fallout is circulating because rain and snow brings it down with a big punch and then the radioactivity of a region will skyrocket.

        And now we have so many sources of fallout…Fukushima the worst of course…the hundreds of plants worldwide with emissions they release secretly during “normal” operations, and then the dust blown from wildfires in Chernobyl, wildfires at Los Alamos.. It is enough combined to make for a global recipe for extinction.

        Fukushima may be the straw that broke the camel’s back, but it was building up for years before this one single nuclear plant finally educated all the atomic energy scientists about what they have unleashed on unsuspecting creatures on planet earth. I hope the Frankenstein doctors have nightmares every night over what they did. They killed their own progeny.

  • daily lives here in the states, As well as Canada’s west coast communities.

    The staggering amounts of radiation in oceanic samples is biblical in proportion. With the abandonment of surveying elements like plutonium taking place right before our eyes, we should prepare for every possible threat in light of this disaster.

    A recent conversation I happened across with a very important friend of mine. Is it is the boiling frog argument.

    The boiling frog story is a widespread anecdote describing a frog slowly being boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability of people to react to significant changes that occur gradually.

    We are the frog. Tepco is the cook. Fukushima the kitchen.

    Facts.
    Fukushima has enough radiation to be an apocalypse.
    Radiation is not being properly surveyed to any extent.
    The amount of radiation released has already began to impact humanity in multiple nations.
    Radiation will be leaking constantly for months if not years on end.
    The amount and dangers of oceanic contamination are truly unknown and frighteningly large in respects to china’s most recent surveying.
    Japan has now abandoned the surveying of plutonium.

    • Hey Tacomagroove, sad that I agree with you. Of course they don’t want to test for plutonium, out of sight, out of mind. Anybody can look up plutonium on wikipedia and find out that plutonium reacts with oxygen and hydrogen, readily binding to those molecules, creating plutonium hydride. That definitely adds to what you say about fog, oceans and rain. Stupid move to enrich fuel with plutonium. Your president seems committed to a billion dollar plutonium enrichment plant they are building. Plutonium enriched fuel ( called MOX ) was introduced to the badly damaged #3 reactor on a trial basis scant months before the melt down . I think the trial went pretty badly.

      I will chime in too nice post Tacoma!

      In light of the obvious yet unspoken magnitude of this event it is interesting to observe that the most outspoken critics have been independents. Busby, Caldicott and Gunderson come to mind.

      Ironically the environmental movement which has clearly grown leaps and bound in recent decades under the auspices of AGW has been strangely silent on this issue. AGW theorists rely predominately on computer modelling and have undertaken one of the largest, longest and loudest campaigns in the history of this movement. Yet they are completely silent on Fukushima when contemplating the magnitude of the disaster and its far reaching, long lasting impacts.

      We have strong science to back up modelling for this disaster that will bring certain death to millions yet not a word from these groups or at least nothing compared to the rhetoric we have heard with respect to AGW. The reasons are many but one stands out in my mind. The AGW argument has been used to overcome public opinion against Nuclear Power and nuclear advocates have used AGW as the spring board for a recent “renaissance” in the development of nuclear power. We need to call for accountability at all levels and with all relevant agencies and organizations, including ENGOS that are now turning a blind eye on computer modelling and future predictions of this disaster while clinging to the same modelling and predictions for global warming. These organizations, if they wish to remain credible, must make this right. There may be little anecdote to the Fukushima disaster, however the challenge is similar with respect to mitigating climate change. The hypocrisy is glaring and speaks directly to the concerns many have shared here and Tacoma briefly, yet eloquently, outlines. The time for accountability is now and with these organizations. They are either with us or against us.

        Who is AGW? Great comment by the way, Kevin. I can’t believe I didn’t think about all the environmental groups that usually make loud protest against the corporate world raping the earth…yet are silent right now about Fukushima. Amazing.

    A new five-year contract with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority will award $30 million in funding to Dart-Dose, Dartmouth’s Physically-Based Biodosimetry Center for Medical Countermeasures Against Radiation according to Harold Swartz, a radiology professor at Dartmouth Medical School…

    Swartz leads a team of 30 scientists and engineers in developing the dosimeter, a new radiation exposure technology that can estimate the amount of radiation a person has received, Swartz said…

    “If there is a large-scale event involving hundreds of thousands of people and the health care system is completely overwhelmed, we must be able to respond,” Swartz said.

  • Plutonium is heavier then most metals so I used to think that the particles would fall into the ocean before they reached the west coast but since now I know Plutonium reacts with oxygen and hydrogen to form plutonium hydride it seems to me its mixed in pretty good with the water in the air and ocean. There is a tiny blob of it somewhere waiting to be absorbed into something living, maybe you maybe me

    hydride |ˈhīˌdrīd|
    noun Chemistry
    a binary compound of hydrogen with a metal

    With all that hydrogen forming to cause the explosions if indeed it was a hydrogen explosion, #3 became a plutonium aerosol factory. I think TG has a more scientific explanation of this

      Plutonium is heavier than most metals. That means it is heavier than other metal particles of the same size.

      All you need is a big explosion to make the plutonium particles tiny. Say, a nuclear detonation in reactor #3?

      Then they have no problem moving long distances if they get up into the stratosphere. I posted something a few days ago, the particles will circle the earth every 14 days. Two years from now, 50% will have fallen to earth. Another two years, another 50%, etc.
