Bloomberg, Willianm Pesek in Japan, Feb. 6, 2014: [...] Anyone who lived through Tokyo’s near-Chernobyl experience in 2011 may recall how poorly NHK performed even then. The network downplayed risks at every turn to avoid panic. Many of us learned about explosions at Fukushima from CNN, BBC and U.S. military news conferences, not Japan’s most trusted news source. Just imagine the next time disaster strikes. Abe’s secrecy law means journalists and whistle-blowers can go to jail for reporting what the government doesn’t want the public to know. It’s nice to know that during the next crisis, when we’re desperate for news, NHK will be ready to distract us with cheerful PR puff pieces. It’s now official policy.

Number 1 Shimbun, Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan, Feb. 4, 2014: Paul Blustein, former Washington Post [and Wall Street Journal reporter who is now affiliated with the Brookings Institution] [...] accuses some present members [of the  FCCJ] of propagating misinformation — even of “journalistic malpractice.” [...] “I’m referring to the oft-repeated claim that the accident came perilously close to irradiating the Tokyo metropolitan area. [...] it is massively at odds with the facts. Propagating it is not just misinformation; it can now be fairly deemed an act of journalistic malpractice [...] It pains me to level such accusations at fellow journalists [...] Leading the pack was the New York Times, which carried a front-page story on Feb. 27, 2012 asserting that Kan and his fellow Japanese leaders “secretly considered the possibility of evacuating Tokyo” [...]  Jeffrey Bader, who had served on President Obama’s National Security Council, explained that modeling of radiation plumes and weather patterns by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory – one of the government’s premier scientific facilities – had shown there was no need to consider evacuating Americans from the Tokyo metropolitan area.” [...]

Rebuttal from David McNeill, The Economist, Feb. 4, 2014: [...] I’m puzzled by this criticism. It seems to suggest that we should outweigh or dismiss the views of Japan’s sitting prime minister at the time of the disaster in favor of those of some U.S. officials in Washington. It also seems to ignore the growing body of evidence to the contrary. To cite only the latest intervention into this debate that I know of, Kyle Cleveland of Temple University Japan has written a well-sourced essay this year revealing that U.S. officials in Japan were concerned enough in March 2011 about the possibility of evacuation to have destroyed thousands of documents at military and diplomatic facilities. Mr. Blustein may also be aware that Kevin Maher, former director of the Office of Japan Affairs also said in his 2011 (Japanese) book, The Japan That Can’t Decide, that U.S. officials in Japan planned to evacuate 90,000 citizens from Tokyo during the disaster. [...]

    The nuclear industry and its shills deny all hints of cover up, calls such allegations a warped fairy tale, despite the fact that TEPCO and the Japanese government have been caught in lies time and time again. The sad thing is that they have convinced themselves that this denial is the truth, and that anyone who displays concerns over radiation is a fear mongering idiot.

      We as HUMANE beings have a duty of care built within us. It separates us from the beasts of earth. That is what makes our species distinct from beasts. There is a real possibility that the entire nation of Japan may need to be evacuated. Yes, it would be difficult, inconvenient; but I personally would not incumbrance ANY of my family from help. Unlike those whom hate their neighbour and persecute the most vulnerable in society. An example being people fleeing tyrants only to be met with an equally as brutal and anti-human tyrant turning his back on his duty to his family. They perceived he was speaking of them!

          Captain Nemo, being raised on a farm, I guess I might have a little bit of knowledge in the area you question me on. Yes animals have a degree of intellect that manifests in a form of empathy. But you cannot have a conversant conversation with animals and animals do not control the environment through civilisation? An animal will even turn on its family and kill another for food. This is well established.

          Psychopaths believe that they can control others with donkey carrots and fruit phones; whilst they further their false empire, as the underlings play angrybirds unaware that they are being controlled, even to the extent of death.

          Unwilling to go to war other methods of underling control was explored by taking the disabled ( USA included) to assess the effect of atomic radiation upon them, now that's sick, evil and true bestiality. If they don't get you with atomic radiation their pervert crops of DNA altered plants will. Unproven, now causing illness, blindness, leaking guts etc. One of the frankenstein Mengele corporations make it quite clear that they plan to replace all natural crops with pervert patent crops, so as to totally control food production.

          Also just for the record, "tower of Babel" was a mistranslation. Babel was actually engineered to become a rocket launch tower like the Apollo program. To launch "shems"(capsules) to Heaven. We were not grown up enough to play with such advanced toys back then. And we still are not apparently. The ancient Hindu used "flying cities", and electron wind devices long before this time. So why not a rocket tower.

    If politicians and other types of leaders could not lie, they would have absolutely nothing to say. Oh, they might speak pleasantries like it's a nice day or it rained a lot last night. For example when Lloyd Blankfein said that Goldman Sacks was doing God's work, do you think he was telling the truth? Or when Obama said if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor? Why would Obama speak so highly of Jamie Dimon the CEO of J.P.Morgan which has committed so many financial frauds? Does anyone really believe these men would go out of their way to save a life if it cost their corporations money or put the government in a bad light? I don't think so. When or if they start doing tests the tests will confirm what they have already said. The Pacific Ocean is vast and Japan is a long way away. So what if a few millions develop cancer and the children leukemia. The world now has an excess of people as it is. No item of news is entirely trustworthy. We are in he dark for good.

    PUBLIC PANIC is a serious issue that needs to be addressed by governments as a matter of policy — not just the avoidance of over-reaction by the public, but to meet a reasonable expectation of timely and accurate information so people can make decisions that will affect their well being. Anything short of that is a violation of trust of the worst kind and grounds for impeachment or overthrow.

    If the wind direction had changed causing dangerous contamination of the Tokyo area, would the Japanese government be justified in keeping this information from the public in order to avoid "panic"? Absolutely not! To what degree does a threat have to be considered grave enough? This must be addressed.

    If governments won't give the public warnings or information, and if they suppress the media and private individuals from giving them, won't people be MORE inclined to panic when the situation does not warrant their alarm? I should say so! This kind of "shielding" from the truth is ultimately counterproductive because people won't trust ANY authorities, whether they are from government or from institutions that they believe have been corrupted.

      And that is where we stand in the U.S., as well. An increasing number of citizens don't trust the government because they know their interests and well being are not the official priority; instead corporate interests dominate. That is one reason so many people are arming themselves and expressing antipathy toward government no matter what policies are in the spotlight, even those that are beneficial to them. This makes people wary of any attempt to elevate the commons and exacerbates the political divide — an example of counterproductive governance on a broader scale.

      Credible reports indicate there was indeed dangerous hot particle contamination fallout in Tokyo. If the Japanese government believes orderly evacuation of the population might be warranted but is impossible to accomplish, then their whole stance on nuclear power plants and waste needs to change, once and for all. That is the crux of the matter, not only for Japan but for the rest of the world.

  • You need sophisticated equipment to ascertain the radioactive situation. You need equipment that can measure the energy level of specific radionuclides to properly assess the situation. Basic citizens do not have this equipment so how can you make sure the authorities are not lying? How hard would it be to evacuate the 40 million that inhabit Metro Tokyo? How would that effect the world economy? What does history tell us? Trust the politicians? Trust the nuclear industry? How bout trusting the experts? Maybe trust your instinct?
    As the economy seems to be what they want us to be interested in more then saving the environment I have no faith. Pipelines, plastic and irradiated food seem to be ok as far as politicians seem to be. They are all a bunch of crooks including America's great black hope.

      This is why public services need to be isolated as much as possible from commercial interests. The collusion with and coercion by the nuclear industry through all manner of government agencies and private institutions has resulted in this wall of obfuscation and propaganda.

    Reuters obtains secret Tokyo evacuation scenario: Fukushima reactors fail as spent fuel rods melt, mix with concrete, and fall into buildings

    Feb 17 2012

    Source: Reuters
    Author: Yoko Kubota
    Date: Fri Feb 17, 2012 1:13am ESTKey points from a scenario document, obtained by Reuters, that was compiled by commission chairman Shunsuke Kondo and entitled “Sketches of Scenarios of Contingencies at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power plant”

    "TOKYO EVACUATION

    Massive radioactive contamination forces residents in a 170-km radius or further to evacuate while those in a 250-km radius or further may voluntarily evacuate.

    Tokyo, Japan’s capital, is located about 240 km (150 miles) southwest of the plant and the greater metropolitan area is home to some 35 million people.

    Radiation levels take several decades to fall.

    I keep getting the feeling it is to little to late. Public monitoring in earnest should have been available directly after the blasts at Daiichi. The majority of airborne fallout damage would have occurred back then like a dirty bomb. Dustings making radioactive hotspots, agriculture and water supplies with high radioactive contaminations would all have been at there peaks in a few weeks lasting a few months. Rainout and washout of radioactivity from the atmosphere would have concentrated finding their ways into the oceans and lakes during runoff with very active decaying in large amounts initially.

    Now, the remaining airborne radiation is something we have to live with as part of more background radiation levels with random hotspots. The Pacific Ocean plume is another matter entirely.

    Blast from the past: Lucky Dragon 60 years on
    BY JEFF KINGSTON
    FEB 8, 2014

    Sixty years ago, on March 1, 1954, a Japanese fishing boat named Lucky Dragon No. 5 was doused by radioactive fallout from a U.S. hydrogen-bomb test, codenamed Castle Bravo, on Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Although the bomb was over 1,000 times more powerful than the one dropped on Hiroshima in August 1945, Bravo was just one of 67 nuclear tests the U.S. conducted in that part of the North Pacific between 1946-58, rendering some atolls uninhabitable.

    On the morning of the test, the wind blew radioactive fallout onto unlucky islanders, American servicemen and that Japanese boat fishing for tuna 160 km east of the blast site, some 32 km outside the exclusion zone. The crew reported that sandy ash fell onto the vessel for a few hours, and soon after they began to suffer nausea. By the time they returned to their home port of Yaizu in Shizuoka Prefecture on March 14, they had serious symptoms of radiation sickness and were hospitalized in Tokyo. The radio operator died six months later with American doctors insisting fallout was not the cause — a finding that Japanese doctors disputed.

    Former US contractor admits N. Korea nuclear leak
    (AFP) – 1 day ago
    Washington — A former US government contractor pleaded guilty Friday to leaking "highly classified intelligence" about North Korea's nuclear program and will serve 13 months in prison, officials said.
    Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a former Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory employee who was assigned to the State Department, agreed to the plea, which must be approved by a judge, according to the US Justice Department.
    Kim was charged with leaking information to Fox News reporter James Rosen in a case that sparked concern about a war on news media, because Rosen was named as a "co-conspirator" in the case.
    The leak revealed the US assessment of military capabilities and preparedness of North Korea. It became the subject of a Fox News dispatch within hours of the 2009 release.
    "Today Stephen Kim admitted to violating his oath to protect our country by disclosing highly classified intelligence about North Korea?s military capabilities," said US Attorney Ronald Machen in a statement.

Of course, if our agents are compromised that's a separate issue..safety of lives. Oh..wait..safety of lives..what about Fukushima fallout on the US West Coast?? Does that endanger 'safety' of citizens lives?? Can't see why its dangerous to be telling our citizens about N. Korea military capabilties or the status of Fukushima fallout/radiation contamination!

    The saddest thing is the way the former bastions of the press have trashed their reputations. Why bother to read them, they have discredited themselves so thoroughly as to be worthless as sources of information. They have yet to report what happened at Fukushima. This is now almost three years on. When are they going to tell the world's eight billion people that the planet on which we live has been irradiated beyond redemption. When are they going to tell them that the more radiation they eat or drink or inhale the worse their lives are going to be. When are they going to suggest that they pay attention to what they eat or drink or breathe in, to try to minimise the risk of an early (and horrible) death? How can anyone imagine that this catastrophic lack of information is the fault of Tepco or the Japanese? The US and the world knew exactly what was happening as it happened. This was monitored to the nth degree by dozens of countries. The technology to do this has been in place since the cold war. When are people going to be told the truth?

    why did professor pull all his money from the banking system

    withdrew 1 million in cash..

    250,000 of 650,000 for gulf war on permanent total disability.. where did the govt go wrong.. well they did not give them enough radiation DU to kill them of course.. why would they want 250000 useless people laying around on the books…with gulf war syndrome or known otherwise as DU contamination…

    my best guess is they must have found a way to get to a new world as this one is finished till mother nature can come in a mop it up….

    my big question is what will the next period hold for the earth, what new creature will emerge in a couple billion years… will be very interesting…good news is mother earth has been wiped clean many times and to her its no big deal…a new transmeolic period will begin and new creature will crawl from the oceans to repopulate…..

    Documents are always meant to be tatters in the wind.
    I lived through enough of this hell already, now surely I will die in it also. So much for the dark sky preservation war I fought, so much for organic gardens, and natural living, So much for brown sky reduction. So much for saving the night moths, so much for astronomy. So much for all of the caring things I did. Now I get told by an impossible CLAUDE of a guard, "You WILL be arrested and thrown in jail Mr.!" for posting a lousy don't eat the fish poster. THESE GOVERNMENT PEOPLE MUST BE SHOT NOW!

      Off topic so stick this where you will. Done blogging here. Been nice knowing most of you, but I am gone. Idiots like Socref have won despite any "positive" change. The pain I suffer is too huge, no one even cares. My family, not one of them asked me if I am ok after a year has passed since I survived skull cancer. Have fun suffering the inevitable, horrible cancer pain due each and every one of you soon people. If you EVER voted for GOOD, then you were suckered BAD by those whom do NOT care.
      Live long and prosper. But you won't do either. There is no fix for FUFU. There is no fix for morons, no fix for government, no fix for uncaring corporate greed, and no fix for me. Good night people of Earth. Sweet dreams to each and every one of you! Enjoy your bran new Cadillac SUV. I hope it is worth the world's former beauty to you.
      O'Bummer. Bedtime for you Mr. Bonzo. Regan had you beat out by far! Your peace prize was given to you by war mongering asses!

        It's not just you, Ontological.

        Your family might believe they are helping you to move forward by not bringing it up. When I had cancer people would ask how I was doing but no one wanted to take me to do fun things. I was in moderate pain. I wasn't dead. The isolation doesn't help me or my young children. I think they didn't want to hear what might not be good news or see me looking a bit rough around the edges. Once when I went to pick up my kids at school, someone asked me why I looked in a bad mood. They were one of my friends but I had to remind them the cringing they saw was my pain as I tried to stand for 20 minutes in line. They changed the subject after that.

        Some cancers have highly networked support but other forms still force its sufferers in to the background. If you're still around to read this, I think you should stay here where people care about you and support what you're saying.

        Also for anyone else dealing with the isolation of cancer, please consider getting in touch w/Imerman's Angels, a global cancer support organization based in Chicago. They will pair you with an angel and will help you chose someone who may be of similar background, race, primary language, religion if desired so that the trust and bond is formed. My angel answered questions my surgeon just didn't have time for and gave me hope. That reminds me I should say hello to my angel. She was a true godsend during a rough time.

    Japan became a mighty industrial giant on the back of nuclear energy.

    The shell of the tortoise has shattered.

    The documents are shredded.

    Ooops.

    Their ionize is ours, yours, and mine.

    Simple humans cannot grasp, at all, what has happened, is happening, will happen, for the rest of time.

    When you saturate a fission pile with salt water, toxic products beyond comprehension ensue, permeating the biosphere aqueously and atmospherically, and biologically.

    The chemistry is not debatable.

    The intelligence and motivation of the humans is.

    Don't go, ontological, we need you. I visit this site to read you and a handful of others. You shed light in dark corners, and there are too few who do.
