    Arnie – I know you mean well and work under appalling constrictions but please! give a link to the hard data?

    “Some scientists” and “average person” just don’t cut it unless of course they emanated from Tavistock Institute mind control operatives?

    According to the US Govt, there was minimal exposure in Washington State in April. HealthCanada displayed the same – minimal fallout – except for around April 4th when some xenon readings became prominent (readings stopped shortly after).

    What are all to assume? We’re nearly 3 (three, FFS!) months into this disaster and authorities are STILL pussy-footing around the periphery. Isn’t it way past time that those who caused this disaster by cost-cutting on emergency procedures roll their sleeves up, call on ALL the nuclear engineers in the world to get there and help out?

    Where is the outrage at UN level? Where is the smooth, fully resourced military machine that could ring-pile the entire Daiichi site within a few WEEKS if they weren’t so busy conducting corporate wars for profit?

    This stinks of carefully controlled slow subtle war on humanity.

    If you think this is tinfoil hat stuff, pop over to vigilantcitizen.com just to see how media play with you all – even on trivial levels…

    Disclaimer: I have no affiliation to the site I link to with my nym. They are in no way responsible for my opinions. However, they do provide honest, if intermittent, radiation data.

      Yes the total indifference on the part of world

      One can only conclude it means that there

          Joeb–your paranoid rants are a disgrace to this forum. You trivialize the Fukushima meltdown by lumping it together with your idiotic conspiracy theories. If I didn’t believe in free speech I would tell you to shut the fuck up. Does the nuke industry pay you to discredit the people who are concerned about Fukushima? Functionally, you might as well be on their payroll.

          • Thanks, Bob; I respect your views too.

            I would dearly love to agree with you but after 45 years of deep research (and radiation monitoring development) it becomes impossible to go along with the fantasy that most people call reality.

            I apologise, but only for causing your knee to jerk ;-)

            Quite understandable; however, I trivialise nothing, having been active at the Chernobyl disaster and yes, collected the damage (despite not being on anyone’s payroll).

            I think a lot of comments see parallels in institutionalized disregard of our ethics and best interests. Those are easy parallels to grasp, since government and agency approaches are so shockingly out of sync.

            In the absence of open disclosure theories abound. Many of them with published, sourcable history and measurable impact. And, it’s a scary, unacceptable trend from Fukushima and back to numerous other policies and choices. Indefensible then, indefensible now.

          Disagree – the only reason we’ve been ‘sold’ nukes is to sell more energy-guzzling appliances. A vicious circle.

          Here, we’ve been living with solar/wind power for over 20yrs – our daily usage rarely amounts to 1kW/hr even with manic washing machine visitors ;-)

          • Well said.

            Nuke power plants (AND fossil-fuel burning power plants) only exist due to the suppression for 100+ years of all non-fuel-burning forms of energy generation. This suppression has evidently been by the banksters/global rulers, with a key famous example of this fact being JP Morgan pulling the funding for Tesla’s early 20th century “free energy” technology projects (due to realising that such forms of energy could NOT be metered, therefore such energy generation would NOT make JP Morgan et al obscene profits).

            Tesla gave the world AC electricity, which we have now been dependent on globally for a century. AC electricity was a “proof of concept”, with Tesla’s REAL inventions (relative to free energy generation for ALL on Earth) being what he TRULY wanted to give to all.

            Yet, such “free energy” technologies have been rigorously suppressed and essentially “cleansed” from human memory as fully as possible by the global rulers, given that these inventions (dating back 100+ years) PROVE the lie that fuel has to be burned to generate heat and power. This is a MYTH propagated by the global rulers, so that we are fooled into plugging into THEIR power grid and giving THEM huge profits (and huge control over our lives altogether).

            Indeed, the paradigm shift to an entirely new understanding of energy altogether is required, or the human “race” will inevitably continue to ever-more quickly “race” along the path towards our own extinction (and even the possible extinction of most life on planet Earth).

      When the CEO of GE is given a top cabinet post by Obama; and when GE designed the reactors involved in Fukushima; and when GE controls a portion of the Media; and when GE is partners in a firm that makes an anti-radiation drug; is it really a surprise to anyone that the truth will not be getting out quickly?
      My question is this: If this radiation is affecting all of us (especially on the West Coast) why have those “in the know” not abandoned California and moved elsewhere? The people who are supposed to be monitoring radiation on the West Coast, and who KNOW what is going on, are still at their posts, no?

        Your assumptions are that all the fallout has fallen out of the sky (it hasn’t) and that there will be no more added to it, so the ground condition where you live won’t get worse. Both assumptions are sadly not true.

        If you re-read the transcript, AG says,

        “There is also potentially some medical issues Maggie and I have been working with a couple of doctors to look at ways to mitigate to help your body cleanse particles.”

        That clearly indicates that: 1) he is not an expert in this field.
        2) They are conducting an ‘investigation’ into potential efficacy of various treatments.
        3) (Since he is not interested in spreading false hope rumors), in a field that is not his specialty, regarding matters of great importance, he needs to be confident before presenting advice.

        That seems laudable rather than condemnable.

        Seems to me that Arnie is doing what we’re (and everyone, really) doing here: speculating. (Now, don’t get on the poor connotation from that ‘speculation’ word, please. He’s just being honest.) Arnie has been forthcoming with the things about which he’s sure. He likely hasn’t much more ability to really know what’s going on than we do, beyond the knowledge his experience has given him, and likely along with personal and professional contacts that he’s developed through that experience. He’s on the outside, too, though maybe has a foot or some greater area of his body inside the door than we might have.

        Beyond this particular disaster and countless other problems with nuclear that Arnie seems to wish to expose, it points to something that we really have to admit to ourselves and remedy, which is that some people know too much about too little, and simply don’t have the discipline of mind to understand what they do in a larger context. Edward Teller is brought to mind as an example…Remember Dr. Strangelove?

        One has to understand that this disaster crosses disciplines, and really is confused further by the (intended or not) obfuscation contributed by those who claim that knowledge by not even having the intelligence to set a universal standard for exposure strength terminology.

        As an example, this is not only a ‘nuclear’ accident, but has become a chemical accident. What exactly is ‘corium’ and what are its properties? Will this particular ‘corium’, resemble the simulations, or any of the thee suspected ‘corium’ blobs exhibit the properties used in projections?

        If one had some cross-discipline (and I’ve not talking about having multiple degrees) knowledge, it would have been easy to come to tacomagroove’s conclusions. I did, as soon as the hydrogen explosions came along. It certainly wasn’t a simple problem of venting…

        Arnie’s doing what he can.

          Since my favorite film of all time came out (Dr.Strangelove) I have often imagined how the lunatic scenario he (Peter Sellers’ finest hour) portrayed in the last few scenes would play out.

          Picture it – a whole bunch of psychopaths cooped up together in an underground city. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Addington, Giuliani, Mueller etc – the whole bunch of them – how many years without sunlight or innocent victims to prey on do you think it would take until they all murdered each other? ;-)

        Jack, sorry your love life and family life aren’t going well. Or maybe you just prefer men?

        Please give your wildly misguided misogyny a rest. It discredits every other contribution you make.

        Homo sapiens will NEED women to survive–men are gravy & secondary, so get used to that!!! In fact, female embryos are designed stronger and thus, survive toxicity and radiation much better than males in order to reach a healthy, full-term birth.

            Already in our toxic world, fewer males are being born in every species. Scientists conclude that female embryos have a better survival rate when faced with prevalent toxins in our environment. And the same concept applies in the case of radiation and heavy metal fallout. There will continue to be more miscarriages and more of them will continue to be males… Note how most of the disfigured, disabled, and institutionalized children from Chernobyl tend to be males. Note how males are 4X more likely to have disabling autism. (there are many studies)

            I wondered about Obama because the corporate media loved him and he accepted massive corporate donations. Most of my friends loved him. Did you campaign for Bush? You are starting to embody a fascist mentality that always includes a large dose of pathetic misogyny. Cheer up! Mommy didn’t hate you.

        I, for one, agree with just about everything you say, joeb. THEIR #1 commandment, per the Georgia Guidestones, is to “MAINTAIN HUMANITY UNDER 500.000,000 IN PERPETUAL BALANCE WITH NATURE.” Hence the necessity to reduce the population to that number. What better way to do it than with a stealth nuclear attack on the entire planet. Because THEY control the corporate media, most people are unaware that they are in danger. It may take a few decades, but they will have the population reduction THEY desire. Whether or not THEY created this disaster, as Leuren Moret asserts THEY did with HAARP, THEY are obviously allowing it to fester, and are controlling the information about it, as well as the anti-radiation drugs THEY are undoubtedly using to protect themselves.

    • Libya was profoundly the wrong international priority on the day Fukushima happened. I felt this when it happened as I do thinking about it today. The govt is not acting in accordance of its peoples, through their own actions and behaviors. I also thought Japan revealed a HUGE national threat to the US administration as a perfectly situated mega dirty bomb if you can see it that way.

      Fukushima reveals an ultimate way to exterminate the West. I though Obama was trying to deflect attention from this reality by focusing elsewhere.

Libyan fossil water, equal to the volume of all the water in the Great Lakes of North America was deposited in Nubian Sandstone during the last ice-age cycle. The U.S. and NATO planned, if things were bad enough in terms of worldwide surface sourced drinking water contamination, to invade Libya in May of 1986 due to contamination arising from the Chernobyl incident. Fukushima is, and it was known from March 12 to be so, much worse than Chernobyl and is contaminating all surface sourced drinking water in at least the Northern Hemisphere.

        I doubt they’re lying. You have to carefully read what they say. In particular this one “no immediate danger for human health”. That just means any plutonium you inject won’t kill you “immediately”. It’ll take a few months. So, the statement is very true, very misleading, but true. By the way I’ve noticed that they use the “no immediate threat to human health”, or some variation thereof, a lot.

        Also, the comment that there are “extremely small quantities” of plutonium. By most everyday standards of measure, I’m sure the plutonium contamination is “extremely small”. Unfortunately, as is pointed out by others “extremely small quantities” are more than enough to do serious harm.

    Can someone help me put all this into perspective?

    Recently watched “Countdown to Zero”, Lucy Walker’s documentary on the world’s nuclear arsenals. I believe it stated there are some 23,000 plus nuclear warheads in the world containing approximately 1700 tons of HEU.

    Somewhere over the last few months I believe I read that just one of the blown out reactors at Fukushima contains 100 tons of HEU. Are these numbers accurate?

    If they are, then we have been exposed to radioactive material equivalent to that found in some 1,350 nuclear weapons in just one of the disabled reactors.

    Also remember seeing information indicating the US exploded 331 bombs in the ocean and atmosphere before stopping atmospheric testing.

    Obviously, the detonation of a nuclear weapon and the melt down of a core as experienced at the Fukushima Daiichi plants is vastly different (probably more akin to the detonation of a “dirty bomb”).

    However, the sheer magnitude of the accident needs to be put in a perspective the average person can relate to. . .and that’s what I’m trying to do.

    So, any help in this is appreciated.

            Candidly, I know my represent- ation of what has happened is VERY inaccurate. Obviously, there has not been as much radiation and fallout released as there would be had there been an air burst of a nuke.

            That being said, we’ve got at least three reactors that have been spewing poison into the atmosphere virtually non-stop since 3-11.

            Does anyone visiting this forum have the expertise to adequately compare say a three megaton detonation (or two or 10 or?) to what has been released into our environment since #1 melted down, and reactors 2 and followed suit.

      I think the best place to help put this all in perspective (and yes, you are right; the planet was seeded with radiation for decades during the big boys fireworks era, until some of us actually git off our collective backsides and put a stop to it) would be to read Yablokov’s “The Chernobyl Catastrophe: Consequences on Human Health” in full*. Despite inevitable biased, it is the most in depth study yet and certainly one ‘our masters’ wish didn’t exist.

    I have been closely watching the high volume air filter analytical data which tracks Gross Beta emissions obtained by the Washington Department of Health since the Fukushima accident occurred. I strongly urge everyone who is interested in or concerned about the possibility of radioactive fallout from this event to look at this data which is available at http://www.doh.wa.gov/topics/japan/monitor.htm.
    If you take the time to look into this valuable information for yourself, you will observe there is data coverage for Seattle, Tumwater (which is near Olympia) and Spokane. You will discover that at no time since the accident in Japan occurred have Gross Beta readings for atmospheric particulates in the State of Washington even approached…let alone exceeded…the highest naturally occurring values associated with background, Gross Beta levels observed in Washington State during 2010. On the basis of this data, we can reasonable conclude there has been no statistically significant effect related to the Fukushima accident on the radioisotopes present in the particulate air pollutants monitored Washington State as of May 24, 2011.
    It has been incorrectly asserted that people in Seattle are breathing ten hot particles per day (presumably related to the accident. Such an assertion is a factually inaccurate conclusion based on this type of data. A Gross Beta measurement on a high volume filter with a value of “10″ does not mean there are “ten hot particles” present, but instead, means that for the entire filter, which may have thousands of particles present, only 10 beta emissions were observed. This is a very low and very expected count indeed when background is taken into into consideration. During 2010, before the accident, natural background in Tumwater, Washington ranged from a low count value of 5 to a high count value of 155 with an average count value of 25, and Spokane, Washington ranged from a low count value of 13 and a high count value of 841 with an…

    This is a very low and very expected count indeed when taking into consideration natural background in Tumwater, Washington ranged from a low count value of 5 to a high count value of 155 with an average count value of 25 in 2010, and Spokane, Washington which ranged from a low count value of 13 and a high count value of 841 with an average count of 92, also in 2010.
    It’s a disgrace when individuals purports expertise that they don’t posses and then misrepresent scientific data for the purpose of fear-mongering and self-aggrandizement.
    Please use your critical reasoning skills to better understand the significance of this reactor accident, and do not be lead astray by the misinformed and unqualified charlatans who come out of the wood-work to pray on the susceptible and miss-informed when Normal Accidents occur.

      “when Normal Accidents occur.”

      We can’t afford anymore of your “Normal Accidents”.

      If your industry and occupation are based on having normal accidents like Fukushima, you’re retarded. Or should be lined up against a wall and shot. After a trial, of course.

      Criminal negligence resulting in wrongful deaths of millions, would be the charge, and there is almost certainly a federal statute on the books which would allow the death penalty.

    First, I do not trust government figures. Second, I thought the “10 Hot Patricles” came from scientist info. With no mention of Washington State other than Seattle as the city. In other words from a private testing sources.

    Novamind…

    Its good to be skeptical; its a powerful step towards critical thinking…

    Check out the data table used in the origional posting on this site…then check out the link I provided…same data…obtained by the Washington Department of Health…see for yourself.

    Then look at the number…

    If they are admitting to ‘some small amount’ of plutonium being at large, assume that there was a massive release and the effects will start showing up shortly…otherwise, why tell people at all?

    Guess what…there is plutonium in the environment…some natural, and some (about 4 tons) from bomb testing…, in addition to plutonium, there are many other sources of Beta emmission, both natural and man-made… When we monitor gross beta in particles filtered from the air…we get a really good indication if a significant increase in the presence of any Beta emmitters (including plutonium) is occuring.
    Thus far, none has reached Seattle or other monitoring locations in the State of Washington… based on on-going Gross Beta testing.
    That said, I continue to be very concerned about the safety and well being of the Japanese people…

    BTW, I am a strong proponent of Perrow’s Normal Accident Theory (see Normal Accidents: Living with High Risk Technologies 2ndEd by C. Perrow, Princeton, 1999) and as such I am convinced this technology is far too risky to be used as a civilian power source…
