They measured strontium at 3 locations in Tokyo (one is at METI), Fukushima Diary, November 21, 2011:

  • Locations picked randomly
  • Strontium can be scattered everywhere in Tokyo

Radioactive Strontium Found in Central Tokyo, EX-SKF, Nov. 21, 2011:

Summary of reporting by Yasumi Iwakami, independent journalist: […]

It’s a poetic justice that the amount of radioactive cesium is the highest at METI. I hear TEPCO’s headquarter building in Tokyo also enjoys rather high radiation.

Iwakami cautions that radioactive strontium may be confirmed to have come from Fukushima only after the detailed analysis at a laboratory that can separately measure strontium-89 and strontium-90. The presence of cesium-134 seems to prove that at least radioactive cesium found in the soil samples is of Fukushima origin. […]

    I wish they had not said that. Their “solution” is to chop down all the trees and shrubs.

      . . . and BURN them and send it at us . . .

          okay, im sounding the bullshit alarm on that women’s video. that type of burn on her daughters arm, if caused by radiation from rain, hundreds of people would have been affected. maybe she should check the PH of that soda bath she gave her daughter before she blames the rain. im also not too sure about the ionized air filter. its an oinized metal plate ! now im not a nuclear enginear, but i imagine a muller tube will give a false reading when held up to an electrically ionized metal surface. nuclear power is going to be the end of us, but if we have a fighting chance, we gotta avoid turning into chicken little. lets get some science involved here and test samples with professonal equipment

            The higher readings observed in St. Louis in the Ionic Breeze video were observed on 11/18 and the higer I-131 readings in Europe were observed on 11/17. It makes one question if it was from the same source or event.

    “can only be confirmed after a test”
    as for the tester you just need a weather vane.

  • americancommntr

    Don’t you know METI employees have been tracking it into the office for months.

    Here’s another free energy solution:

    Of course, a) skeptics will come out of the woodwork to decry it, b) all the industry professionals will be educated idiots about it and afraid of hurting their reputations being associated, c) it will get no funding, d)something bad will happen to the inventor, d) some principals will sell out behind his back, and e) it will join the LONG LONG LONG list of such technologies, buried never to see the light of day.

    It’s so much more important to protect some billions of dollars in nuclear industry investment, than unleash free energy onto the world economy, revolutionizing the entire world.

    We’ve got to kill a nation-sized area every 25 years, you know, and generate some cancer treatment business for the pharmaceutical cartel.

    Speaking of sending more of this DEATH crap to the USA, I see that Michael Collins is scheduled to be the second guest on the Rense Radio Network broadcast tonight, which begins at 10:00 PM Eastern time.

    His scheduled presentation is titled “Fukushima Radiation
    In The US.”

    Not sure if you have ever visited his web site but, it is worth a serious look, at:

    Best to all.

    • James Tekton James Tekton

      Hello CH,

      God bless you for sharing this. I posted the link for his show last week and it is good to see follow up. I also added Michael to my U-tube channel where a lot of us gather at for more as well as, invited him to come here to comment and add his readings on the perm thread.

      Thanks again and lets see what he has to say tonight. Most likely, he will refer to his findings on the filters and rain. I looks like the schedule has changed and he will be on in the third hour. Stay tuned as they say, the only thing that is new is in the rains.

      God blesses all those who bare the truth.

    You must bring us… Another shrubbery! only this time a little less radioactive, and with a little path down the middle.

  • Grampybone Grampybone

    I will not buy your tainted shrubbery! I wonder if this reading is from recent rains or from earlier releases. What the hell are they doing inside that government building? Picking their noses? We need more information about the state of reactors 5&6 SO BADLY! WHY ARE THEY HOLDING SO MUCH INFORMATION FROM US!!!

    • pure water

      Because information has the power to change attitudes. And if more people know the true situation, it is over with many of these folks in these buildings. Daiini and reactor 5 and 6 will be systematically avoided in the news. Let us hope people there will talk.

    It’s sad that Japan has done so little to test the content and extent of the contamination. It seems like by now someone must have paid an independent lab to test for plutonium in Tokyo. I’m waiting to see news on the subject. If plutonium has contaminated large parts of Japan, I wonder what scientists would say about the safety of living there.

    • Radio VicFromOregon

      They’d say that radioactive contamination from Plutonium poses no immediate health threat to the public. That, in fact, the average exposure wouldn’t even be anywhere near the equivalent of flying in a commercial airliner three loops around the island. And, finish with the claim that no more than 5 people in all of history have ever gotten sick from radiation poisoning. And, that was because they weren’t taking proper precautions.

    Fukushima Equals 3,000 Billion Lethal Doses

    Dr. Michio Kaku pointed out on CNN March 18, 2011, Chernobyl involved one reactor and only 57.6 Tons of the reactor core went into the atmosphere. In dramatic contrast, the Fukushima Daiichi disaster immediately involved six reactors and IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency, a UN Agency) documented 2,800 Tons of highly radioactive old reactor cores.

    Looking at the current Japanese meltdown as more than 50 Chernobyls is one way some people are beginning to estimate the disaster. Simple division tells us there are at least 48.6 Chernobyls in the burning old reactor cores pumping fiery isotopes into the Earth’s atmosphere. Some are calculating that this all adds up to three thousand billion (3,000,000,000,000) Lethal Doses of Radiation means there are 429 Lethal Doses chasing each and every one of us on the planet, to put it in a nutshell.

    “Those who deny or deceptively play down the catastrophic threats to public health from all phases of the nuclear power cycle, from mining to the lack of any proven solution to permanent and safe disposal of very long-term deadly spent nuclear fuel, recklessly ignore the medical/scientific lessons we should have learned from current and previous nuclear accidents,” writes Rudi H. Nussbaum who is a Professor emeritus of Physics and Environmental Sciences at Portland State University

      Just shillinʻ…

      Johnathan Hughes is a chemistry teacher in Western Sydney, and as such one of his passions is educating the public about the potential benefits (and the real problems and costs) of nuclear energy. Like a growing number of scientists, engineers and educators, he sees nuclear power as a key strategy in the fight against climate change.
