‘Quite Something’: Extremely radioactive sample from Tokyo air filter — 150 times more uranium than expected — “This is from Fukushima” -Busby (VIDEO)

Title: Dr Chris Busby: radioactivity in apartment in central Tokyo
Uploaded by: drdrwoland
Date: July 25, 2012

  • Apartment on 20th floor located 300 meters from the Tokyo Tower
  • A gamma spectrum of the sample scraped from the filter
  • According to the sample information at the bottom of the spectrum:
  1. Taken June 15, 2012
  2. Collected June 18, 2012

At 4:45 in

So what we can say about this sample is that its extremely radioactive… It contains high levels of uranium and lead-210 and cesium-137.

All substances which are inside an apartment on the 20th floor of a block 300 meters from the Tokyo Tower. Isn’t that quite something? It’s quite something.

Rhodium-102 this is a fission product from Fukushima.

There’s far too much uranium there, there’s about 3,000 becquerels per kilogram. There should be about 20.

So this is from Fukushima as well.

Which means there’s particles of Uranium floating around in Central Tokyo.

Scary stuff. Scary stuff.

It’d be interesting to know what the radiation health specialists think about these findings.

    This is all just fear mongering! The levels are well below safety limit, that is what the government said. Anything else that is found must be ignored and ridiculed.

    Besides uranium comes from the Earth so it must be good for you. So long as you smile and do not worry everything will be fine. Do not worry about having children or a future, everything will be fine.

    If you think the above sounds like crazy talk, it is. Get off your ass Japan and ARREST the criminals who have done this. ALL OF THEM, and put them on site at Fukushima Daiichi to clean up forever!!

    • richard richard

      I agree kintaman. The fact there has been no criminal charges is in itself criminal.

      Here in Sydney, at the height of the drought, you would be prosecuted if you washed your car and wasted or polluted the water.

      Tepco are poisoning the pacific and the air and the ground, yet no one lifts a finger against them.

      We are up against the mob.media.corp.guv and we have to start making a bigger impact. In fact we are 500 days overdue, pitifully way overdue and inactive. Pitiful.

      • rambojim

        @richard..Did you know that the Ohi nuclear plant was restarted on 07/01/2012 with nary a bit of guilt. Tepko officers and the rulers of Japan should be lined up and shot in public…

        • rambojim

          By the way, the plant is also on a earthquake fault line…

        • richard richard

          @rambojim – yes, I'm well aware that the reactor is now up to full operation, it even sounded an over temperature alarm.

          now i have to go to this meetiing …


          because the sleazy politicians sneaked in an approval for uranium mining (in OZ), without any mandate or consulation of the people. they broke a 26 year freeze, and didn't annouce it to the public.

          Barry O'Farrell is yet another example of politicians playing for corporate interests, not for the people or the planet.

          So now I have another fight on my hands. Sheesh. The meeting is on August 16.

          (just a hint rj, because i've been told before, we just have to watch how far we push the evelope on suggestions of intense actions against people. I try to couch my words a little. It's not easy, a lot of us are very angry at the deciet and injustice, just sayin' that some words remain unsaid).

  • mungo mungo

    Rhodium is a fission product of uranium-235; therefore, each kilogram of fission products contains significant amounts of the lighter platinum group metals including rhodium. Used nuclear fuel might be a possible source for rhodium.

  • yogda yogda

    Thank you Dr. Busby.

  • Yeah most countries will throw you in jail for cultivating hemp, even if its for personal consumption, but nobody even gets fined for irradiating the Pacific ocean a food source for a billion people. Maybe you should go to jail for growing hemp but then what punishment is fit for TEPCO executives? What about paid scientists lying to us? What about politicians ignoring this crisis because they got paid off? Its not just about fukushima and nuclear power, its a value system we all accept, white collar crime goes unpunished, and politicians lie and ignore their responsibility to "we the people" and get rewarded with fat pensions.

    • mungo mungo

      NO ONE should go to jail for growing hemp. or for growing cannabis. hemp is NOT a drug. rant over.

      • kintaman kintaman

        Marijuana should not be illegal. What right does anyone have to tell us what plant can or cannot be grown? Ridiculous. It should be plainly obvious to anyone why it is illegal. Big pharma and the alcohol industries cannot have anyone cutting on their profits since people could then grow their own.

        • jump-ball jump-ball

          When I was a child vacationing in 1952 in pre-Castro Veradero Beach, Cuba, I asked my family what was growing on the large nearby plantation with the overhead stone driveway entrance gate with the engraving "DuPont", and my family of lawyers replied "Hemp".

          Better living through chemicals.

    • unsub unsub

      A maddeningly excellent point which highlights how raw power is still the deciding factor in human affairs.

      Whether or not hemp should be legal or not I have no idea. However, crimes that are proportionally more or less serious than hemp production should have punishments that are proportionally more or less severe. The scale of the negative effect of the Fukushima crime on humanity when compared to some kid smoking pot in his/her basement, I think any sane person would agree, is many times greater.

      [ Cool Japan ?]

  • Shouldnt have used hemp as an example. Don't want a legalize weed discussion just comparing crimes. Pot leads to other worse habits like McDonalds fast food.

  • enoughalready45 enoughalready45

    "Should they leave the country? Yes."

    If they stay in Japan it should be only to make an example out of those that have worked to keep people ignorant about the radiation exposures resulting from Fukushima.

    It is criminal that the governments of the world cannot be trusted to be vigilant in protecting their citizens.

  • weeman

    Can't wait to see the results of the more indepth analysis, keep us posted Mr. Busby and thanks.
    It must make his head spin how complacent we have become concerning nuclear fission.

    • jump-ball jump-ball

      I have been posting about, and waiting for, the comparison tests that could be done on auto and commercial/industrial AC and air filters taken out of service in Feb. 2011, versus those still in service post 3/11 and used through latter 2011, or still in use today.

      Identical, pre-3/11 and post 3/11 car filters, residential-office filters, and industrial filters: the differences would be so alarming as to be unreportable by the corrupt nuclear-controlled media.

      But why isn't an independent source doing it, and reporting the facts of contamination?

  • Andres Arce Andres Arce

    it's a farse !
    and the Japaneses still expect to held the 2020 Summer Olympics in such atmosphere.
    Athletes will die on the track with those heart-seeking substances.

      @Andres Acre…There may be no one to light the Olympic Flame…

    • unsub unsub

      If they did get the games, you can bet they would stage many events in Fukushima. I would stop watching the Olympics if that ever happened, because it would prove that it is as twisted an organization as TEP-kill.

      • richard richard

        I haven't watched the fascists games for a long time. and i wont be ever watching them in the future.

        i encourage you to switch off your television and walk away.

        i mean, rocket launchers onto of apartment rooftops, like really, what is this friggin world? please don't drink their kool-aid.

  • dosdos dosdos

    The investigation is over, now for the lynching to begin.

    It's a bad time to be pro-nuke in Japan. It's a bad time to be in government. Things are changing. It's a good time to be in solar/wind.

    The Japanese system of a new prime minister every year seems a way of throwing the scapegoat aside while the replacement carries on with the business of making the Japanese rich even richer until he needs to be replaced by yet another scapegoat. The cycle needs to be stopped and a means of creating a system more responsive to the Japanese people initiated.

    Then Fukushima will be amended, but still hanging around, as radioactive as before. Better, but not a solution.

  • kintaman kintaman

    They had the information regarding the spread of the radioactive plume but deliberately withheld the information to prevent a panic. So preventing a panic is more important than telling the truth? Insanity.

    I ask now: why are these officials (all of them), or traitors of humanity as they should be called, not being arrested for their crimes against the people of Japan? What about the impact to the Pacific ocean? This world is insane.

    "So, we have a SERIOUS problem in Tokyo."
    "This is quite a SERIOUS discovery."
    "People who are servicing these filters should be told… It's a SERIOUS hazard for inhalation of the dust."
    – Busby

    Agreed,it IS serious.

    • Air conditioner filters are inefficient, they only trap the biggest particles. A HEPA filter would have been much more contaminated.

  • MACtheYODA

    THIS along with the other news on ENENews makes it VERY CLEAR, that there are more nuclear plants with major leaks in Japan then just FUKUSHIMA !

    This is what all the foot dragging is about by all the leaders in Japan, if they keep you focused on FUKU then you are less likely to find out about all the other problems !!

    I think there needs to be a major search WITHIN TOKYO ITSELF by citizens for sources of radiation, there very well could be big surprises waiting !!!

  • arclight arclight

    after watching this video showing uranium and the pb and po 210 heavy contamination in tokyo.. i cant help wonder about the children and residents of fukushima and sorrounds.. so i will post these here to give the above statement some perstective while we await the full spectroanalysis..

    In Containment 「格納容器の中」 part 5/5


    and this rough summary on thyroid…

    The forgotten children of Fukushima.. Thyroid radiation dose cover up by the World health Organisatin

    skip the in containment intro and go straight to the articles on thyroid dose, largely caused by the different iodines the children were exposed to.. the links to reports and articles can be accessed using the links in the description.. sorry about the quality.. ive been a tad busy..
    but its a reasonable summary..


    gnight all

    • arclight arclight

      afore i go

      page 27 on this report from ans gives an estimated

      "..cancer deaths due to accumulated radiation exposures cant be ruled out. conservative risk estimates ~100s of cases against an expected ~10 million cases..

      no shit??

      also says

      "..remediation efforts or further evacuation may be necessary to avoid a sub population with high risk.."


      • richard richard

        this is an ANuS report.

        they conclude there are no deaths due to radiation.

        arc has highlighted their expectation that only 100 in 10 million possible cancer cases will be induced due to fukukuku.

        of course, the 10 million are probably already caused by radiation poisoning.

        the one thing I get from this report … they realise there is a problem with ..

        "further evacuation may be necessary"

        can't they understand that if a technology causes permanent evacuation then maybe there is something wrong?

        ANuS are a propoganda platform for the organised crime of nuclear energy. Be ready to jump down their throats from the moment you meet one of them. They are not on our side.

      thank you for all you do…

  • gottagetoffthegrid

    What really bugs me about this is this :" there SHOULD be about 20". Bullsh!t. There is no normal level of volitized uranium. The 20 is from DU weapons in Iraq, Kosovo, Yemen, Libya ….

    Uranium is a biota in, mutagen , carcinogen , teterogen and a few other 'gens.

    20. Thanks POTUS 40, 41, 42, 43 , and 44. Look these numbers up in Chinese numerology for a kick

      here a link to the 2003 Uranium Weapons Conference background info briefing


      "Munitions that contain low-grade uranium 235 – insufficient to trigger nuclear explosion – are chemical-radiological weapons. They contain other toxic-radioactive elements and have indiscriminate effects. They are illegal by virtue of international conventions, laws and customs of war. When used in populated areas or in the presence of numerous troops (enemy or friendly), they become weapons of delayed but mass destruction (WMD). Fatal consequences of depleted uranium (DU) armour-piercing ammunition emerged in veterans and civilians after wars in the Persian Gulf and the Balkans. While the victims remain neglected, hundreds of tons of uranium from weapons developed in recent years against hard and buried targets have polluted Afghanistan. Up-coming war scenarios involve larger chemical-radiological contamination potential."

    might need a licence to change the filter on the sleep apnea CPAP machine. oh well, better out than in (and stay in bed all day). grrrrrr!
    and I assume that basic air conditioner filters are not fine enough for all particles vs HEPA filters.
    comparing Dr Busby's works and tools with the vast armada of the all powerful state and all the good they do (NOT).

  • unsub unsub

    Can someone please post the link to where I can get my air filters tested for free? I am in Tokyo and I would love to add to the growing evidence against these terrorists.

      I would suggest contacting Arnie Gundersen at fairewinds.com , as he was asking for them (a while ago).
      or (jokingly I write), send them to Russia as they are testing imported products from Japan, unlike the Hilarious US and their dont ask dont tell treaty with Japan to NOT test for imports.

        Tokyo Soil Samples Would Be Considered Nuclear Waste In The US

        "..Fairewinds’ Arnie Gundersen took soil samples in Tokyo public parks, playgrounds, and rooftop gardens. All the samples would be considered nuclear waste if found here in the US. This level of contamination is currently being discovered throughout Japan. At the US NRC Regulatory Information Conference in Washington, DC March 13 to March 15, the NRC's Chairman, Dr. Gregory Jaczko emphasized his concern that the NRC and the nuclear industry presently do not consider the costs of mass evacuations and radioactive contamination in their cost benefit analysis used to license nuclear power plants. Furthermore, Fairewinds believes that evacuation costs near a US nuclear plant could easily exceed one trillion dollars and contaminated land would be uninhabitable for generations…"

    There are shills on the Youtube comments page defending nukes and saying Busby is a fear monger. Meanwhile the reading is right there plain as day to see?

    Isn't this the kind of denial you have when Mt. Vesuvius is erupting and some who see it simply cannot accept it and carry on with their daily ritual like its a perfectly normal day.

    I really appreciate a scientist that shows his work.
    It's good to show the people how it is done…and that the tests have actually been done.
    Busby is clear..and on point.
    All the involved isotopes need to be discussed.
