  • Ya Admin! TY and Mahalo.

    How can even small amounts of man made radiation in the ocean have a massive impact on the food chain, morbidity, and fungal infections that are killing sea life?

    The Chitin Bioaccumulation Hypothesis is very strong, and has not had ANY negative evidence leveled against it, regardless of the dozen of nuke trolls out there who are paid to pretend everything is fine.

  • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

    Tepco states no tritium detected, nor cesium-137 et al around the south discharge channel. (GIF display on right) This has been their claim for years now (unchanged). What gives?

    None detected, none detected, none detected, none detected, none detected…

    It's okay, TEPCO considers the manmade harbor-port part of containment, along with the Pacific Ocean, Northern Hemisphere and the entire planet Earth.

    ND (or non-detectable) is a relative term used by TEPCO for mystical comparisons.

    Because background radiation levels continue to rise that is only a minor inconvenience.

    Regarding Stock's chitin accoumulation hypothesis, and comments elseshwere about phytoplantkon: The Crash Course, a recommended book by Chris Martenson, states that at time of publication (shortly before Fukushima I think), globaly phytoplankon was already down by 40% compared to measurments decades earlier. In some areas of the USA, oxygen levels are consistently lower nowadays. The damage caused by Fukushima is a grave concern, and largely suppressed not only in corporate media, but, some claim, in academic journals as well.

    Meanwhile, the world is on track to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. The only good news about that event is that it might have the unintended effect of focusing on the very issues they are trying to cover up.

    "WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon has thrown a cloak of secrecy over assessments of the safety and security of its nuclear weapons operations, a part of the military with a history of periodic inspection failures and bouts of low morale.

    Overall results of routine inspections at nuclear weapons bases, such as a "pass-fail" grade, had previously been publicly available. They are now off-limits. The change goes beyond the standard practice of withholding detailed information on the inspections."

      Seems we like explosions of all kinds…and with Nuclear anything.. an absolute waste of our taken by force taxpayer/livestock monies. 🙁

      The Bulava missile took Russia years to develop and one its most expensive military project ever when it was first deployed in 2013.
      Designed to carry nuclear warheads, the missile forms the backbone of Russia's submarine-based deterrent – but is notoriously unreliable.

      …Sarvey stopped releasing animals last weekend and won't start up again until July 8 or 9. They expect an influx of wildlife impacted by fireworks as early as this weekend.

      "We've had everything from mallards stuck in a fence trying to run away from fireworks. We got several Steller's jays that had been displaced from their nest and abandoned by their parents. Other birds will hit things and fly into trees. They become very disoriented. The amount of explosions and chaos and the smoke and everything, they're not sure what's going on. It's a very scary situation especially for the babies," said Sarvey Director Suzanne West.

      West remembers taking a baby bald eagle last year, abandoned by its parents because of fireworks.

      …It makes for a crowded facility with a lot of scared wildlife, and the animals are already challenging, especially those living at Sarvey during the holiday.

      "They actually shake," Paolello said. "There's explosions going on all over the place. They won't eat. They won't drink. They're hiding in the corners of their cages."

    "..The world is inherently flawed because the mindless are superior to the meek.."

    Ye What a sad sad show this is..this absolute Extinction show..and humanity as a whole could have stopped it..if we had not replaced the value of life with the authority of greed over all..let it organise our "societal structure" now the top of the powerstructure based on greed can not allow us to know or act or Unite and mobilise..because they have all the blood of the world on their hands and fear retaliation on one side..and on the other side the sickness of the greed is so addictif they simply cant stop..just look at a "middle-clas" example Koch brothers (when speaking in terms of absolute powers , compared to rotchilds for example they are just shrimps)..

    Well , they themselfes KNOW they dont NEED more wealth..they have enough to live like kings for thousands of years..but they cant stop sacrificing everything alive , a whole planet to gain more..pump big sums of money and surely twist alot of arms to replace truth with lies for it..from a certain level of sickness on..depending on the individual..its impossible to matter what sin needs to be committed..
    Look at Trump and the warcrimes he is commiting while he managed to get elected by promising us he would get rid of warcrimes by USA..

    Now our (currently unstoppable for above reasons) global extinction , as if its not bad enough in the result of betrayal by sickness..psychopathic junkies..

    Hold on people, "North Korea launched a missile on Tuesday, with the Japan Defense Ministry saying it might land in Japan's exclusive economic zone (EEZ), Reuters reported, citing Japanese broadcaster NHK."

    • SadieDog

      "North Korea launched an ballistic missile into the sea off its east coast on Tuesday, South Korea's military said.

      The projectile, which the South Korean military also described as a ballistic missile, was launched from the North's western region.

      Japan's Prime Minister office said the projectile may have crashed offshore, in its exclusive economic zone.

      The test launch follows President Trump's calls to China and Japan on Sunday night. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Xi Jinping and Trump discussed the growing nuclear threat posed by the North.

    Trump administration takes steps to open up federal waters for offshore drilling
    3 Jul, 2017

    In a move that overturns the Obama administration’s ban on oil and gas drilling in parts of the Arctic and Atlantic ocean, the Interior Department has announced that a new five-year offshore drilling plan is now open for public comment.

    The 45-day comment period, published in Monday’s Federal Register, marks the first step in what will be a lengthy process to rewrite the Obama administration's drilling ban program.

    The plan will focus on 26 areas in federal waters that could be leased for oil and natural gas production. The Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and waters off south-central Alaska are among the areas that could be leased.

    New Report Warns Nuclear War Is Inevitable Unless Cooler Heads Prevail

    As the Syrian and Russian governments accuse the United States of trying to invent reasons to launch an attack in the Middle East, an international group of former military and diplomatic leaders is warning of an “unacceptably high” risk of global nuclear war if cooler heads don’t prevail.

    In an 11-page report from the Nuclear Crisis Group (NCG) — a subcommittee of Global Zero, an organization that supports the total abolition of nuclear weapons — the former officials make recommendations to governments on ways to de-escalate tensions around the world.

    Hey Frank. I've mentioned here before that the veils between the world's are thin. Probably cuz there's so many departures of people and life forms due to all the swirling poisons, the veils never fully settle down & close fully.
    Anyway, my sweetie whispers in my ear now & then. She's stil helping me solve problems & she definitely wants me to live. I think last night's message was for you.
    You once said you lost a woman & a child, yes? Recently? That's why you wander thru the underworld searching?
    The image presented was my wife at standing next to another woman. They both appeared 20 years old. Two Spanish beauties standing side by side. My wife has one arm behind the other's back & a hand on her shoulder, as if presenting her to a crowd.
    The message is–> "Here she is. She's… Right… Here. And she's fine.
    As the image faded, I was lucid enuf to ask a name. I heard…Anita.
    They're probably best of friends, chattering away in Spanish while they help newcomers get settled. My shaman friend tells me that's my wife's current work. Perfect fit.

    • danger kitty danger kitty

      Frank, only thing I have to add : if I'm right, here, not tottaly off base, don't ya reckon your sweetie wants you to live? If accurate, this message was initiated by her, after all.

      • danger kitty danger kitty

        That's it. Wanted to get that to Frank. I'm assuming admin did some banning, cuz I don't here that yammering inane incomprehensible puppy drivel of Hippie Dog in the background.
        I saw what HD did yesterday. One good link-to MVB, then started commenting like he understood that huge, complex article on Dose Deception. And his comment was incomprehensible…
        Then he linked to that clown video-> Ten things you don't know about Fukushima. Well, I still don't know em cuz the first sentence was a lie. Company line-> The tsunami caused the meltdowns!!! Hippie fell for the tsunami lie. Or he's pushing the lie.
        Eye witnesses saw coolant pipes sheared & broken at multiple points before the wave hit. Meltdowns already started before the wave hit. A million un-drowned backup generators would have no way to deliver coolant to the reactors.
        Hippie, It was the earthquake, NOT the tsunami. Enenews 101, idiot.
        PIPE SHEAR. Consult a plumber if you are still confused.

        • or-well

          Beware the tsunamididiters.

        • I always said the obvious… The earthquake damaged the reactors beyond help and the tsunami just complicated any containment effort…

          …Not to mention the pumps (on the ocean floor) were damaged and then were completely destroyed by the tsunami rendering no power a "not applicable situation"…

          Even if the generators were working damage from the earthquake was enough to create a runaway situation…

          …damage from the Tsunami was the final coffin nail in doing anything about it in time. No pumps? Having no power (which is a absurd situation at a nuclear power plant with 6 reactors…) was never the real problem…

          Broken pipes and pumps were the problem, the tsunami just complicated any efforts to do anything about it.

          So the earthquake was the culprit on many levels, any other explanation is as false as your comments about my opinion Danger (false information spewing) Kitty…

          Never mind…

            So if you truly are past Enenews 101, why did you post that video called Ten things you don't know about Fukushima? The FIRST sentence was the tsunami lie!
            Can you explain yourself?

              I was watching that video maybe a year ago or more, and it seemed good, so I posted the link here and kept watching. Before the video went to much farther I was saying whoa, shit! I came back here an corrected myself as the movie was still playin. Or maybe that had one video that wasn't tooooo bad, but the next was was skeeeeery. OR they had a bit of good stuff leading you on and then BAM the nuclear propaganda gets slipped in, and next thing ya know your pregnant.

              All in all I wish I never got involved

              • Posting a video does not mean that I agree with everything that's said…

                …I didn't create the thing, I did see some intriguing real life on-scene video footage.

                Again as I've stated many times the videos are one thing (actual footage from the scene) the opinions are just that, opinions.

                The actual footage doesn't always agree with what is said…

                Seems that the "cop out" comes when someone says something and then all other evidence is ignored (just like the real certified ocean readings I posted about).

                It seems that some can be completely blinded to real evidence simply by a person's opinion…

                So if someone want's this group to discredit the whole of the evidence all they have to do is say something misleading and then ALL the evidence is considered fake and ignored…

                If that's not bad enough in and of itself, these conspiracy enthusiasts will then take one or two statements that they don't agree with and tell every one that it's all fake and should be ignored.

                Strangely enough these are the same people that post already confirmed disinformation as if it were true, because it fits with their personal agenda of some secret conspiracy (in everything).

                Don't be so easily blinded to the whole picture (real evidence) because of someones opinion you don't agree with.

                That's investigation 101 guys…

            Just to clarify. Morning Frank wakes up half-inebriated with morning dread, possibly from the rather vivid dreams and nightmares and night terrors which are often quite accurate.

            As the day goes by, average Frank recognizes far too much, gets miserable about the passing day and possible night terrors and drinks more. Then he types a bit like Bukowski (without the wife-beating), with a sardonic or sarcastic slant.

  • A chain reaction is still possiable for reactor 1 reactor 2 reactor 3 reactor 4 for sure . All the reactor cores from reactors fools pool melted down so it could be them in a chain reaction . Consider they showed fake pictures of people working at unit 4 .

    Its interesting that the robots all died at Chernobyl and they never even tried to solve the robotic issue in the 30 years since .

    Also that stupid idiotic ice wall is building up the radiation on site and the water will be finding its way back to the surface .

    They plowed over broken fuel rods from the detonations with bulldozer's all over that site and put cement and pavement and steel plates over large section of the site to get a few extra days from the homeless workers .

    Or they are finally alluding that there is a constant chain reaction ongoing for 6 years so we can finally began to start and look for real solutions instead of pretending its like a banana potato-chips walkin in bla bla bla bla bla yea . Hugs

      Japan built robots for nuclear accidents before Fukushima, then decided there was nothing to worry about and gave the robots to museums. I posted the link about a week ago, don't know where it is…

      Rick Perry's nuclear PR speech last week seems reminiscent of:

      (This is a great article by the way)

      "Nuclear Nationalism and Fukushima 核国家とフクシマ"
      "Also important is the "deregulation" mantra of the Liberal Democrats under Koizumi Junichiro, prime minister between 2001 and 2006. Everything from labor oversight to inspections in the energy industry were downgraded in deference to a neo-liberal "international competitiveness" mandate.16 The Koizumi government also cut funding for specific measures including nuclear plant earthquake resistance research and development programs for robots to be used in nuclear emergencies.17"

      Are Donald Trump and Rick Perry Liberal Democrats? Hard to say. Rick Perry seems to think the country of France is part of the administration. Rick Perry is really cool. Don't you think.

    • Yey Dana, good to hear from ya…

      "Or they are finally alluding that there is a constant chain reaction ongoing for 6 years so we can finally began to start and look for real solutions"

      We know that the reactions have never stopped for a moment since 2011…

      We know that most of the fuel is now underground…

      And we also know that the reactions will continue for decades and the byproducts will be deposited in the ocean and fresh water table for ever to some degree…

      …and right now (over 6 years later) to a unbelievable degree!

      Strontium figures need to be dug up and made public!!! A huge release after 5 years and will continue for at least a decade or 2…

      Yep that stuff (corium) is in the water table and washing into the ocean everyday…

      Not that I would have to tell you…

      Can ya get us some recent reads of strontium in sea water?

    Unit 1 had a passive cooling system in case of a meltdown, only needing water replacement to keep it going. That failed. Failed by way of a 9.0 earthquake ruining the piping. The meme of the tsunami taking out the reactors is propaganda put forth by the nuke industry apologists to deflect the fragile state of nuclear plants when stuck by earthquakes.

    They had to remap and redraw the Japanese coastline after the great quake was done shifting the island around. Even without a tsunami parts of the coastline would have flooded anyway since ground levels dropped 3 or 4 feet in some areas leaving them permanently underwater.

    Reporting high radiation levels now like drama queens when the radiations levels were high or higher when containments were lost in the beginning 6 years ago.

    You can interpret Japanese government news as a coverup but the US showed them how to do it and it is and will be no different here to coverup the fallibility of nuclear power generation not the least is the problems of safe storage of nuclear wastes.

    Main results is higher cancers rates leading to more deaths and a lower overall quality of life.

      Yep, razz, the tsunami meme is also a legal/financial issue. If the tsunami did it, well hey, its an Act of Dog. Just shrug your shoulders. But if it was the earthquake did it, somebody's financially liable for producing a defective product. I recall there was some fiction in the earthquake studies before the plants were built, too. TEPCO doesn't wanna go tbere…

      • unincredulous unincredulous

        I read that the plants had been rated for earthquake motion only in one direction, horizontal or vertical I forget. One, but not the other. It was a while back. I think that was Fuku

        "The design basis acceleration for both Fukushima plants had been upgraded in 2008, and is now quoted at horizontal 441-489 Gal for Daiichi and 415-434 Gal for Daini. The interim recorded data for both plants shows that 550 Gal was the maximum for Daiichi, in the foundation of unit 2 (other figures 281-548 Gal), and 254 Gal was maximum for Daini. "

        Note that I don't know if they have a vertical earthquake tolerance. They say Japan's coast dropped three feet. I'd like to see a map showing the line where this three foot drop was.

        "TEPCO doesn't wanna go tbere…"

        Neither does GE.

        Check it, even south africa's lone NPP (which is still unfortunate), Areva (it seems).

        "After the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, seismic safety at Koeberg was reevaluated in conjunction with the IAEA. Although Koeberg was designed for 0.3g zero period ground acceleration (ZPGA), a magnitude 7 earthquake, stress tests evaluated Koeberg against a 0.5g ZPGA. Overall Koeberg found to be seismically robust and well designed, with some areas for attention and improvement that were highlighted.[5]"

        Otoh, I think they're talking crap. because they wouldn't actually be able to test for that without such earthquakes ocurring, would they? I mean, if you biased modeling and statistics…

        Maybe those EQs were just dog's way of pointing out flawed design, engineering, programming, management, technicalites, practical operational dysfunction and so on.

      The key point of contention in the criminal trial of former top Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) executives over the 2011 nuclear crisis will likely be their decisions on tsunami prevention measures after the utility itself estimated in 2008 that tsunami with a maximum height of 15.7 meters could hit its Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.

          HALF-LIFE: from Chernobyl to Fukushima.

          A unique album documenting the tragic consequences of the Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear disasters. 9 yrs of work in radioactive zones – rojektu znajduje się poniżej (po wersji angielskiej) 日本語版は英語、ポーランド語の下にあります。 My name is Arkadiusz Podniesiński and I’m a filmmaker and photographer from Poland. Over the last 9 years, I’ve devoted my time and resources to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, documenting the effects of the largest nuclear disaster in history. When I started my work in 2008, I had no idea that just three years later a similar disaster would take place in Fukushima, giving me the impetus to create a unique project where I could show and compare the tragic results of these disasters. And so my project “Half-Life: from Chernobyl to Fukushima” was born.

          …135% funded.

        • The simple "scape goat" narrative works every time…

          “It is not earthquakes or tsunami[s] that are to blame for the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, but humans"

          This is the excuse used EVERY SINGLE TIME one of these rattle traps allowed to run and run and run and fails miserably…

          When are we simply gonna admit it's the nuclear plants themselves that cause these situations?

          When we run out of people to blame? I guess that's some peoples idea of a good excuse…

          Chernobyl? Human error…

          Three mile island? Human error…

          Rocketdyne? Human error…

          Fukushima? Human error…

          And the excuses go on and on and on and on…

          As along as these shady people have someone to blame, they seem to be able to get away with anything…

          It's playing with the snake that bites ya, no human error needed…

          "As in the Chernobyl case, it was a human, not technology, that was mainly responsible for the disaster."

          You have to be very careful with interpreting and assessing that.

          The AI/robot/drone (this is a vague term, "human") programmers/engineers would very much like you to believe that their biased, implicitly broken technology is, as a result, superior than human discernment.

          I could mention, for instance, the state of the art simulation modeling regarding cas9/crispr gene alteration leading to thousands of defects not predicted by their simulation modeling.

          • Chernobyl accident theory…

            Disclaimer this is opinion and speculation and should be taken that way…

            …Don't jump on me and say I'm a paid op or anything, that kind of baseless speculation only give away the fact that some are cluless and are conspiracy mongers completely seperated from reality by misinformation…

            OK here we go…

            1st Chernobyl had no fuel pools. Why? Because they were taking the spent fuel for processing to make bomb materials…

            So the idea that they were performing a dangerous test in the middle of the night when most of the staff were not there rings some simple bells doesn't it?

            OK woh about plutonium production? How do you dramatically increase the amount of plutonium generated in any given period?

            Power output. By backing down the reactor to the critical low power point these things can make massive amounts of plutonium in a very short time.

            So the facts are:

            1: A dangerous "test" performed in the middle of the night with minimal personnel onsite. (seem strange?)

            2: A reactor intentionally put into a low power condition (fast plutonium producing state) for a so called "test"

            3: A known weapons material source reactor with no onsite storage.

            Was this human error or a order from higher up designed to produce more weapons materials? Were they behind in getting these materials to the processing plant?

            A good one to think about and look closely at….

            What do you think?

    Hello Canada!

  • unincredulous unincredulous

    Arnie Gunderson say we need to add a "level 8" to the 7 nuclear incident scale. Maybe they could call it level 8 —> No immediate threat. Walking in sunshine with french fries and a banana split.


    • unincredulous unincredulous

      or maybe… level 8. Call Stanley Kubrick for the cover up

    • Or we can do the math and call it (fukushima) what it is honestly…

      "Arnie Gunderson say we need to add a "level 8" to the 7 nuclear incident scale"

      Let's see here…

      Unit 4 – loss of fuel pool, fresh offload from core in the pool boiled dry and burned for days – Level 7

      Unit 3 – massive explosion ejected fuel pellets over 2 miles away in all directions, ex-building core, drained fuel pool – Level 7

      Unit 2 Hydrogen explosion, loss of fuel pool coolant, melt down melt through, ex-building corium in the ground in very short order – Level 7

      Unit 1 loss of fuel pool coolant, hydrogen explosion, melt down, melt through – level 7

      So 7 X 4 = 28 (not 7 or doughnut or aardvark or elephant)

      Fukushima was as LEAST a 28 using the current system of 1-7

      Yep level 28 nuclear disaster, the truth without complication.

      Fukushima? Level – 28

      …and that's leaving out the fuel pools that would have been a level 7 (7X3) all by themselves.

      Could it actually be a level 49????

    "The surface level of the Pacific coastline in eastern Tohoku has been rising since sinking in the March 2011 giant earthquake, prompting action to lower the height of seawalls in some areas."

    Those seawall engineers aren't very bright are they?

    The explanation given for many seawalls allowing the tsunami in was that the ground dropped during the quake.

    So they should suspect that might happen again and leave the seawalls higher. Not lower them because the land is rising six years later.

Looked like three inches long with hand stretched out to the sky. Then, it disappeared. There is one cloud that has that artificially created look to it down low.

    Accumulation and retention of radioactive elements in biofilm communities surrounding the accident site of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant

    After the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, various surveys have been performed to measure the extent of radioactive contamination in marine sediments, surface waters, plankton, and fish. However, the radioactive contamination of one of the most important ecological niches, biofilms, has not been investigated. Therefore, in this study, we sampled biofilms from sea floor stones around Hisanohama Port, which is less than 30 km south of the accident site, and then analyzed the microbial community structure and element profiles, including those of radioactive elements, of these biofilms in order to determine the accumulation and retention of radioactive elements in them. Our results showed that the biofilm samples contained relatively high levels of radioactive cesium even when the sampling was performed 8 to 11 months after the accident. Our results also suggested that the structure of the biofilm organismal community is related to the element profile of radioactive cesium. Thus, our study suggests that biofilms are a possible radioactive compound accumulator in the natural environment and that they can retain radioactive material for at least 8 to 11 months.

        Boycott Israel? You Die!!!

        "..So where is all this leading us? How long before referring to Israel as an apartheid state, or saying the words “free Palestine,” are also made illegal? Perhaps a Jewish lobby will one day succeed in having the kaffiyeh banned as well, perhaps on the grounds that so adorning oneself in public will constitute “hate speech” or “discrimination.”

        Israel is more than simply a small cubicle of totalitarian rule where young girls are shot in the street and men in wheelchairs are turned upside down. What is growing increasingly clear is that gradually, piece by piece and country by country, the whole world is coming under its control and the control of its billionaire Jewish supporters.

        How such a smothering trend can be turned back and reversed is a matter worthy of debate, but it’s important for people to realize that this struggle is no longer simply about winning the freedom of Palestinians–for the Zionist yoke is around all our necks now.."

    “There will be competitions and then, say in the afternoon, children can access and have a go for themselves. They’re all sports that, as you can see, engage with young people. In terms of our vision and Tokyo 2020’s vision of wanting to bring these sports to the people, I think this is a good location.”

    Coates, who was in Japan for three days of meetings through last Friday, also said he was pleased with Tokyo’s overall preparations, especially trimming more than $2 billion in costs, and pledged that organizers will work for still more cuts.

    Last September, a Tokyo Metropolitan Government panel warned that the Olympic price tag could balloon to ¥3 trillion. That would have been four times the estimate Tokyo made when it won the bidding in 2013, and prompted a worried IOC and local organizers to form a working group on reducing costs.
