KBS, Sept. 14, 2013: Japanese media say the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) reported lower than actual levels of radioactivity in waters around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant for nearly two years. [...] TEPCO said the inaccurate measurements were taken from July 2011 until May this year, resulting in concentration levels of radioactive cesium being reported some becquerels lower than the actual level. It said the measurements were taken one-point-three kilometers south of the nuclear plant. [...]

NHK, Sept 14, 2013: TEPCO under-reported cesium measurements [...] After being notified of the error by the Nuclear Regulation Authority, TEPCO discovered that its previous per-liter measurements were several becquerels lower than actual figures. TEPCO says the error was due to the wrong assessment of the impact of radiation in the surrounding area. [...] Experts at the meeting criticized what they called an elementary mistake. They also said the matter should not be left to TEPCO alone and called for the Authority’s involvement.

    I think that life wants to live and that is why its very tough to kill life. Ergo: All the nasty weapons that had to be invented by man to kill other men. Ergo: Why nasty chemicals are used on weeds that just return the next year stronger. If we follow the survival of the fittest understandings then genetic adaption becomes paramount to the long term survival of each species.

    Every onslaught creates another opportunity to genetically adapt and then the biggest problem is if the onslaught is to quick and just to fast which might kill off the entire species effected.

    Nuclear Contamination for the most part is/has been a soft kill that takes time and though it has already killed many millions it's like JoyB stated there are many of us still here.

    So yes millions will certainly die horrible deaths from Fuksuhima and millions of other animals will die too, but will it kill all of us and them little creatures is the question. I personally do not think this one triple event is big enough to kill us all. But with that said, it does have the potential to move us one step closer to our planet's overall extinction level event. A Solar Event could wipe out the entire electrical grid and all these reactors could go up in smoke tomorrow and then it would be lights out for all life. To much to quick and done.

    So why are we here? We are part of our species intellectual struggle to survive. We are the genes talking to the other genes and telling them to stop and stop now! Shut…

      RAdiation greatly lowers the intelligence. So whatever humans remain will have no intelligence. Good luck.

        anne, there must be (A) Hope that the "smarter genes" , you and others here, win this ongoing war/battle and yes this is a war for the survival of not only our species but all the rest of the life now residing here on Planet Earth.

        You once mention brainwashing and you were correct as this entire paradigm and current operational Zeitgeist Matrix that exists around us all today only exists because of massive ongoing brainwashing promoted throughout all areas of the world.

        Unless humanity breaks this ongoing entrenched brainwashing cycle and then moves quickly towards the light of truth, the future will be one of futility, as this entire modern civilization slowly collapses around us.

        Ergo: Why all the new military/police/private controls are being put into place.

        Sick and dying people will/do not make any future that is/would be viable for anyone…

        The smart protective genes should never give up!

    I read today an account about Chernobyl Liquidators in which they estimated the yield that contaminated Europe over 11 days in 1986 was a whopping TWO Hiroshima or Nagasaki atomic bombs!

    Woohoo! I have seen estimates at Fukushima have been on the order of a bomb equivalent every day…some say every hour. So take your pick…920 days (22,080 hours) since 311

    920 atomic bombs
    22,080 atomic bombs

    The truth probably lies in between, but we know atomic bombs kill mainly by the heat blast and many of the isotopes diminish in a year's time. Nuclear plant isotopes are far more numerous in scope (over 1900) and quite a few remain dangerous to carbon forms for hundreds to millions of years.

    There is something about sincere words which bring a truth beyond facts. When my mom was dying of cancer, she lifted her weary arms, as if a child, embracing the universe with a smile, and said, we shall not come this way again

      sorry, annes sincere postings inspired that thought…

      others have inspired me also. Redpill reminded me of this saying; first get the facts straight, then you can twist them any way you want. Looking in the mirror, I was reminded of this Eastern proverb; Experience is a comb which nature gives to men when they are bald

      Heres one from Akiro Kurosawa; In a mad world, only the mad are sane.

      Heres a beauty from Einstein; "The true value of a human being can be found in degrees to which he has attained
      liberation from the self."

      more, you say you want more?

      If at first you don't succeed, well,
      so much for nuclear power plants and ocean life

      One for Obewan;

      The Great Tao has no form,
      Truth has no counterpart,

      It is motionless like the Void,
      It does not wander through the samsara of life and death,

      The Three Worlds do not contain it,
      Within it there is neither past, nor present, nor future.

      whoever wrote that, he was very wise!

    Congratulations to all!

    Many more people need to be awakened in this ongoing struggle to towards enlightenment!

    Thank You and Much Praise goes out to the Japanese People for shutting down their last Nuclear Reactor!

    You have all become Enlightened!

    Now, if only we can get the rest of the World and the American Public would/to awaken soon.. too!

    Very suspicious indeed.

    Gee, if they kill us all off then they will nobody left to hassle or pay their way anymore! :)

    These military people need some enlightenment.. right away!

    They are in the process of screwing up what has been a very good thing!

    ..at least for them!

    I personally could do with out the whole military thing…but alas we are still only animals!

    Someday there is (A) hope we humans will change!
