Title: Fukushima – Did we almost lose Tokyo?

Date: Mar 2, 2012

Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear joins Thom Hartmann. In a little over a week – we’ll hit the one-year anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that triggered a nuclear crisis at Fukushima in Japan.

Summary of 6:15 in

The children in the Chernobyl region have heart pathologies you’d expect to see in very old people… Foreign teams of doctors go into Belarus like a MASH unit to perform 100s and 100s of heart surgeries on children, to put patches on their hearts because they have holes in their hearts. And its the radioactive cesium.

    Thom Hartman continues to be one of Americas most outstanding journalists on these issues and quite a few others.

    Doctors detected a hole in my sons heart when he was 7yrs old. He was born in the Northwest but has lived in the Southwest since he was less than 1yr old. Makes me wonder if in that short time in the Northwest he had enough exposure to cesium in the area from the Chernobyl event to have caused that damage?

      Hi luke….If your family was around Hanford, that might have been a factor with your boy also. Don't know, just thinkin out loud.

    • Laterlukemayb Laterlukemayb

      I don't think that was it because we were in the inter-moutain West close the the continental divide, but lower elevation. Well maybe PoorDaddy. You know it was I don't know….maybe 4yrs before he was born my wife and I were working a seasonal job along the Columbia river in the middle of Washington state that just so happens to be downriver from the Hanford site. No biggy if your not taking a dip in the river. If your fishing for Rainbow Trout and catching em then there is a big problem, and I was….and cooking them up….oh MAN they tasted good. The only fish my wife ever ate on account they didn't have a real fishy taste to them. Well now that you mention it, we might possibly have had cesium Trout that day instead and who knows what other radionuclide creatures could have been in them! 🙁

      I know a woman who was born with a hole in her heart. It largely healed up, but opened again at about age 14. Don't know where her mother lived before birth, where she did in early childhood, but would say it was probably due to radioactive contamination.

      Incidentally, her father worked one summer at the Callaway County nuclear power plant construction site one summer. He was a teacher, and a friend in the union had gotten him a job, ahead of hundreds of other applicants.

      His first day, he was told to quit working so fast, because the other workers were getting angry at him for doing so; it made them look bad, and sped up the work. That's the attitude with which that plant was built.

      This woman was born before that plant was built, so it is likely it was releases from some other plant, which affected her. It is ironic, however, that in ignorance of the issue of cesium and NPP's, that her father contributed to more of the same, and possibly, God forbid,

    Sorry, my ex-wife now!

      3/11 was not Fukushima first release or radionuclides.
      Several years ago, there was another accident with release of radionuclides which went silent at the time but still, many people died of leukemia and odd cancers in the following years. Including all family members (except one) of a friend I know who was living in Fukushima. It could have happened 7 or 10 years or 13 year ago (I guess 10 but it could be 7, in 2003).

    I know it's off topic but if it isn't bad enough that we have this ever increasing nuclear catastrophe, here's something that will put a little perspective on the irreversible damage we've already been doing to our soil!
    Imagine the monster that Tepco and Monsanto could create together!!

    • NoPrevarication NoPrevarication


      Thanks for the link, I am forwarding it to my family. Truly Monsanto is the worst corporation in America.

  • PoorDaddy PoorDaddy

    The reason I mentioned it……
    My girlfriends family lived in that area from the 50's til sometime maybe late 80's. One sis in law = cervical cancer. Another sis in law = just had her thyroid taken out last week. Another undergoing thyroid tests now…having problems. Cousin in law having her thyroid removed next week sometime. GF's Mom had full mastectomy many years ago. Throw in a fair amount of birth defects. Hanford was and is an ongoing nuclear shithole.

      I don't think there's any doubting it PD, we have to be the most unintelligent life form on this planet!! We once had the hostess with the mostess and now look at us!!!! I wonder how we're doing in the rest of the multi-verse???

      • PoorDaddy PoorDaddy

        I read somewhere once upon a time that human intelligence should be measured circular instead of linear and I agree.
        Linear runs from severely, developmentally disabled on a long line to extreme genius.
        Circular measurement, at some given point in the circumference….severe retardation meets extreme genius with most of us somewhere else on the circle…and just keeps rolling seamlessly.
        In the multi-verse? My guess is waaaayy low percentile.

        • Hot Tuna Hot Tuna

          I had never heard that about intelligence before PoorDaddy, but what an Einsteinian insight. Very true, thanks.

        • AGreenRoad AGreenRoad

          There is also a multi dimensional aspect. Some people believe and experience multiple dimensions, while others believe in only the physical body here on Earth.

          So the circle is not one dimensional, but up to 7 or more dimensions, possibly making your model look more like interlocking spheres?

        • AGreenRoad AGreenRoad

          There is also the matter of multiple intelligences to consider.

          EVERYONE is intelligent, and mental smartness is just ONE of many intelligences. I taught in school using this technique and many more students respond to this model than the mental IQ only model, where everyone who does not have a high IQ is a failure.

          We are all successes, in our own way. Just because we do not have an IQ like Einstein does not make us worth any less.


            and more relevant, is the results of that 'intelligence'. Most-any criminologists will testify that the really successful serial killers, are above average in their intelligence rating. I fear that in the aggregate, we are all now victims of serial killers who prefer pocket protectors to razor blades…

      There was a time I must admit, that I watched a few episodes of the Simpson's. Now that I think back it really ticks me off how smug the story line was showcasing nuclear power.

      Oh isn't it funny how there are three eyed fish, and how funny it is that Homer is the lazy buffoon idiot managing the controls of the not so dangerous Uranium fuel supply. Isn't it funny seeing the nuclear power plant engulfed in a mushroom cloud in the background while Homer sucks down a case of duff beer.
      Yeah that's right brainwash a generation into believing all that hype about the dangers of nuclear power are over played.
      Oh, but if your kids that have dyslexia, or attention deficit disorder, or some illness the doctors just can't seem to diagnose, well you must come from a bad gene pool so let's sterilize your children so they don't produce anymore dysfunction offspring!

        Only recently and for the very first time we watched a few episodes of this animation. I believe writers find it very difficult to produce serious work within the main stream media of corporate TV and so they use low comedy to produce some very cutting subtexts. Homer Simpson is a classic Shakespearean 'common man', he is 'Old Adam' the Gardener from 'Richard II' or Enobarbus, the soldier in 'Anthony and Cleopatra'. However, whereas these latter were committed professionals commenting upon the personality and governmental weaknesses and failures of their 'masters', Homer has gone dangerously beyond that phase. He knows but doesn't care, he is negligent because he apes his management, thinking only of immediate gratification, money and food. All good writing is as a mirror, it reflects back at the person who reads and the society from which it comes. Making an animation about John Doe who works in a nuclear power station with such little attention to the danger inherent in such a enterprise and laughing at three eyed fish can be Carnival low comedy or inspired didactic satire but also both. Knowing what we now know about the way this crisis and the whole nuclear industry has been and is 'managed' mostly people are laughing out of fear. These 'managers' should note the Bard's advice…"In time we hate that which we often fear".

  • dear jones

    Just watching SBS in Australia TV's program about nuclear crisis at Fukushima in Japan. They are trying to pay down the problem.

    They claim:

    most radiation have been kept inside the CV.
    only Cesium is the problem.
    questioning is it worth to keep the e-zones.
    no one have been killed by radiation.
    the new nuclear plant will not have this kind of problem.

    What a PR program!!!!!!

  • dear jones

    SBS One, 8.30pm

    British physicist Jim Al-Khalili travels to Fukushima to investigate the literal and figurative fallout from last year's nuclear disaster in Japan. He wants to know whether nuclear power is safe.

    Read more:

    He is not investigate but just what everyone believe that nuclear power is safe. BS physicist

    He is not investigate but just want everyone believe that nuclear power is safe. BS physicist

    On the show in order to make people feel that there is no more problem, he is not using mask.

  • LloydJHart LloydJHart

    Hey folks, I have been fighting nuclear power for decades and several years ago I designed a new radiation symbol based on the old one and then put it on a shirt. Check it out.

    • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

      Hey Lloyd, nice design; but capitalism also equals death. Please do NOT solicit in these rooms. Capitalism (exploiting other people and our finite ecosystem) is how we came to have nuclear energy and now, since we're a species of stupid monkeys, the inevitable failure of that ridiculous useless martial technology.


      @LloydJHart: so here's the thing: your graphic is excellent! There's no arguing about it. It's a nice blend of symbolism.

      My only objection is that you're attempting to capitalize on this issue. I may be wrong, but the fact that I'm being redirected to an off-site venue to purchase your work, makes me suspicious of your intent. Now, if you arraigned with enenews to allocate a percentage of your sales to this site, then I'd have zero objections with your effort. I might even buy one.

      • PoorDaddy PoorDaddy

        Hmmm, the only real up side of Big LLoyd's On-line Shirt Emporium to me is that Enenews has become a big enough target audience for advertising.
        Don't tell your friends, LLoyd.

    • trinityfly trinityfly

      I love that shirt.

      • moonshellblue moonshellblue

        Yes a five dollar t-shirt for 31 bucks plus shipping but they are designer and I did even note whether the profits go to a non-profit anti-nuclear organization? Anyone?

      • PoorDaddy PoorDaddy

        For $5-10, you can buy a box of those printer iron-on sheets, download any pic you want, print it on one of the sheets, iron it on any white t-shirt. For the price of one $31 shirt, you can have a weeks worth of anti nuke t-shirts. By the way, those iron on sheets last for a long long time on a t-shirt….I mean YEARS!

  • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

    This ionizing radiation heart damage video by Dr. Busby is among the most informative things I've seen herein in a long time coming from sources outside of our very knowledgeable and passionate blog membership. Thank you for posting this.

  • Pallas89juno Pallas89juno

    This reporting, without contextualization, is also a great example of intentional social construction to encourage those of us concerned about these matters to see the trees instead of the forest related to the biological damage problems from ionizing radiation exposure. Appropriate inductive thinking about the above would beg questions, again, about biological organisms worldwide ingesting ionizing radiologic compounds, of which there are thousands of different kinds, from Fukushima and likely more than a dozen other partially or fully melted down nuclear reactors in Japan and probably elsewhere which events information managers have been very good at hiding from the masses. Without contextualization, we will get used to this kind of information.

      Allowing spammers into a space is also a covert information massaging organization tactic to shut down conversation. This is how formerly useful and once quite international political chats were shut down on Yahoo beginning in 2006. The rooms were allowed by the moderators and they have moderators to be filled with, in the case of Yahoo, porn-bot spam, which any first-year IT student working internship for Yahoo could have prevented. At times up to 95% of the room memberships in political chats there were porn bots. The experimenting with that in the chat rooms themselves began in June 2006.

      • Sickputer

        Don't misjudge LJH for a mere spammer. He has a far more interesting history than that. Kinda funny actually…the MSM has used his demand list with the Occupy movement to try and discredit the entire movement as anarchists. Quite hilarious in my opinion that he got the Limboheads to scream bloody murder.

        I am inclined to give Lloyd the benefit of the doubt at least in your assertion of a T-shirt spamming post. I seriously doubt he has a stake in Zazzle although I could be wrong.

        Having said that… Does his MSM label of anarchist disqualify him from intelligent offerings to this forum? Or would we rather have one of the 100,000 Yakuza gooks infiltrate here or any of the millions of sneaky goons from the nuclearocracy? Lloyd posted here months ago and gave an intelligent discourse on nuclear power intimidators and probably has a few more stories of interest.

        • Sickputer

          Oh hell, now I see he crossposted the tshirt post in two threads.

          Lloyd… You got some "splaining to do!"

          I take back my doubts…off with his head admin. 😉

          You blew it with me Lloyd. Too bad.

          • Atomfritz Atomfritz

            He seems to have spammed his ad in practically every thread I looked into today.
            Really, the admin should inject him a virtual cesiumchloride injection 😀

            • Wow. Not nice to totally flame him. Smart to try to get the message out. Anyway, Lloyd et al with off site information: go to your ENE profile and link your url there. When you are back to commenting your name will have turned blue. Then people with an interest can click on your name and will be redirected to your site. Easy to do.

  • Atomfritz Atomfritz

    The nuke industry is very interested to make people believe that cancers are the only health effect of radiation.
    So they can state that only 0.01 percent of all people will die of Fukushima radiation.

    But the truth is that immune deficiencies, brain and CNS damage and heart problems are the main consequences of radiation.
    Already a lot of Fukushima workers died of heart failure, just to name an example.

    It's so important to make people aware of this!
    So, many thanks for this article!

    You are working every thread as well… Fritz.

  • NoNukes NoNukes

    Great work, Admin. I only read the headline of this thread last night and had nightmares about everyone I love having holes in their hearts. Effective writing!

  • AGreenRoad AGreenRoad

    Almost everyone on Earth either has holes in their heart, or walls around their heart; some less, and some have more.

    The walls come up due to painful traumas… which we all go through.

    It is difficult to keep the heart open, wall free and vulnerable after a painful event with another person.

    So we all have our work cut out for us.. Repair the breaches, and break down or dissolve the walls that keeps us separated from each other.

    Excellent thread and we must all be vigilant and relentless in our pursuit of any truths that have been purposefully hidden in plain view from all of us. Use the Force to awaken these sleeping masses.

    Does "Chernobyl Heart" with Japanese subtitles exist? I couldn't find it on You Tube. I just watched it and it should be seen by every parent in Japan. It would scare them into action.
