[...] On March 4th and 5th, 2013, Dr. Sebastian Pflugbeil, a physicist and President of the German Society for Radiation Protection, and Prof. Eugen Eichhorn, a mathematician and President of the German-Japanese Peace Forum Berlin, visited Matsumoto. [...]

In the evening of March 4th, Dr. Pflugbeil and Prof. Eichhorn had a meeting with the families of about thirty evacuees. Dr. Pflugbeil and Prof. Eichhorn have repeatedly visited Japan after the nuclear disaster, stressing each time the seriousness of the situation. Dr. Pflugbeil said “After the Chernobyl disaster, enormous health hazards were seen even in Bavaria, Germany, which is 1,200 km away from Chernobyl. Such hazards first became apparent five to six years after the disaster. Due to the Fukushima disaster, even southern Tokyo is contaminated as much as Bavaria. Therefore, similar unfortunate health hazards might be anticipated even in this region. We seriously have to think about what we should do.” At the same time, Prof. Eichhorn said that “There is no way to undo what has already happened. What we certainly can do right now is not to resume nuclear power plant operations.” [...]

Radiation from the Fukushima nuclear power plants is spreading beyond Fukushima further north as well as to eastern Japan. Therefore, this network aims to accept evacuees with no limitation on disaster-stricken areas and to support the evacuees and people who wish to evacuate without isolating them, so as to seek solutions to reconstruct their lives.

  • Solution: Bring out the PR gang, tell more lies, hold an Olympic Games and nuke more people.

    No safety fears over Tokyo 2020, IOC Evaluation Commission assured

    "But radiation is no longer a concern, claimed Takeda.

    "Radiation levels in Tokyo are now much lower than global standards and lower than many other cities overseas," he said.

    "Also, studies have shown that Tokyo's radiation levels are lower than the exposure a person would get on a flight from Tokyo to New York.""

    I've always had a bad feeling about Tokyo since this began, and I think it's justified, especially in view of the hot particle count mentioned by Arnie.

      Compare … lies

      "Also, studies have shown that Tokyo's radiation levels are lower than the exposure a person would get on a flight from Tokyo to New York."

      It's always lower compared to a banana,
      an x-ray imagery, an intercontinal flight …

      What a luck, they don't compare radiation with football fields.
      (Normally, the MSM measure everything in football fields)

      And now the chorus: "No immideate health concern."

        Arnie Gundersen went to Tokyo and took five soil samples completely at random from the city. He then had them tested and said that they qualified to be "nuclear waste." So who conducted the false "studies" cited above?

        The nuclear waste in that tuna roll
        After Fukushima, small quantities of radiation have been found in bluefin tuna. How worried should we really be?

        "For starters, the potassium in bananas — levels of which our bodies, via homeostasis, calibrate and keep at a relative constant — can’t be compared in good faith to a truly nasty radionuclide like cesium-137, which is commonly found in the immediate aftermath of nuclear-reactor accidents and nuclear-weapons tests.

        (To get severe radiation poisoning from bananas, you’d have to eat about 20 million of them. In 1987, a small cake of cesium-137 that had been pried out of a discarded piece of medical equipment ended up killing four people who came in contact with it, and sickened hundreds more.)"

      Quite contrary to what they say about radiation and airplanes, a one-way flight from Tokyo to New York will reduce radiation exposure.

      Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister (tell a big lie, repeat it often enough, and people will believe it), was German, not Japanese. Yet the Germans seemed to have LEARNED something. The Japanese have apparently learned nothing.

  • There ought to be a bullshit detector built into Google serps so the Google Spam team can downrank otherwise technically correct sites for telling dangerous untruths. They do it for business – advertising standards and reviews, fraud & repro products….
    They were reticent to rank the .biz & .info when they first came out, but it seems Googles algorithm still goes with the Establishment too quickly instead of saying, hold on, a gazillion peta bequerels of ongoing radiation and this site here is inviting people to an Orympic sized party…I ought to strike it from the results as complete bullsh1t or necro scam..

    "Radiation Expert: Even southern Tokyo is contaminated from Fukushima" ummmm has been for the past 2 years and yes there was already a vast amount of official evidence from 2 years ago. Hell, my backyard is twice the limit the Soviets used for the mandatory evacuation for Chernobyl, and its been like that for 2 years now and my house is in the Tokyo suburbs.

    Too bad for Tokyo, and beyond.
