TV: “Astronomical amounts of radiation” found in downtown Tokyo… Directly outside gov’t building — ‘Horrific’ readings where kids playing in Fukushima, ‘extreme’ levels found where food is grown for elementary school lunches — Nuclear expert shocked, upset by discovery (VIDEO)

Published: August 22nd, 2016 at 12:10 pm ET


CCTV (Channel 17 in Burlington, Vermont), published Jun 20, 2016 (emphasis added):

  • Margaret Harrington, host: I know you mentioned Arnie Gundersen, the chief engineer at Fairewinds, and he said that he measured the radiation there, too. Could you talk about that a little bit?
  • Maggie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education founder and CEO: He’s working with some other scientists who are studying — both Japanese scientists, the samples that they took, and the US scientists who are evaluating the samples — and they’re finding astronomical amounts of radiation, even in downtown Tokyo outside of METI’s door. METI is the regulatory agency over nuclear power… When he and others were downtown in Tokyo, they took samples right there in a garden right outside the door and on the front doormat, and these are really, really high samples. Frightening, because people walking in Tokyo will then be inhaling that dust. What was the film we saw from Japan that had the mothers who were in an area where kids play and run from middle school?
  • Caroline Phillips, Fairewinds Energy Education: It’s a fantastic video… it’s a mothers organization, they live in the Fukushima Prefecture and they’re actually using Geiger counters that have been issued by the government. They’re walking along the river [in Fukushima City.]
  • Maggie Gundersen: What’s so tragic about it – kids are running along dirt paths doing gym class and track and things like that and the mothers are right down in areas that are not posted and the kids can go after school and play, and people do nature hikes and stuff. And the radiation readings are horrific.

Gendai Business Online (article in Japanese here), Jun 14, 2016: [J]ust before the 5th anniversary of the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi, a group of young girls in the city of Minami-Soma rode their bikes to school past a shocked and saddened pedestrian. That upset observer was Arnie Gundersen, nuclear reactor expert… “What surprised me at this visit to Japan… is that the decontaminated area is contaminated again,” Mr. Gundersen said while explaining why it was such as sad shock to witness the girls on their bicycles. “This was not what I had expected. I had thought that we would not find such high doses of radiation in the decontaminated area. But, sadly, our results prove otherwise.”… Gundersen collected samples of dust [though] the official data cannot be released before the publication of formal scientific papers, it is evident that high doses of radiation, usually found in nuclear waste, was detected from these samples. “This means that highly radioactive dust is flying around the city. In other words, the decontaminated land is contaminated again. Little girls are affected by the radiation 20 times as much as adult men. The Japanese government’s standard of 20 mSv is based on exposure assessments for adult men. The girls on their bicycles are actually being affected by a radiation dose equivalent to as much as 400 mSv.” Mr. Gundersen also pointed out that human lungs are heavily affected by internal exposures to radiation. “At this visit, I wore a radiation proof mask that can filter out 99.98% of radiation for six hours. I sent my filter to the lab, and they found a high dose of Cesium. But, unfortunately, the Japanese government only cares about the number on a Geiger counter and does not consider the internal exposure. This has resulted in a hazardous downplay of this kind of data and human lungs are affected by the serious internal exposure.”… [T]he radiation from the mountains are coming back to the city by way of wind and rain. Mr. Gundersen noted the extreme radioactive contamination of the mountains… vegetables grown in that area exceed the government’s standard by 1500 Bq. These vegetables were sold at the MichinoEki in Tochigi prefecture, and the bamboo shoot grown in this contaminated region was used for elementary school lunches in Utsunomiya. These school lunches contained more than twice as much radiation as the government’s standard… However, the government continues to push for the end of people’s relocation and force the return to recontaminated areas… Mr. Gundersen also found that Tokyo remains contaminated. He measured dust… and found a high dose of radiation. That dust is in the air that will be inhaled by the visitors and athletes of the 2020 Olympic Games. Needless to say, the current residents are inhaling it every day…

        but, how bad could it be, really?

        Paper says nearly as bad as the nuclear test era, which scientists have estimated killed 40 to 60 million people.

        'Mean values of the water-column inventories decay-corrected for the Fukushima-derived (134)Cs and the bomb-derived (137)Cs were estimated to be 1020 ± 80 and 820 ± 120 Bq m(-2), respectively, suggesting that in winter 2012 the impact of the FNPP1 accident in the western North Pacific Ocean was nearly the same as that of nuclear weapons testing.'

        Impact of Fukushima-derived radiocesium in the western North Pacific Ocean about ten months after the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant accident.

          norbu, the story in that "passing the torch" link is ripe for dark humor parody:

          Rio Paralympic games follow the Olympic games. However, as able-bodied Japanese athletes mysteriously dwindle, the 2020 Tokyo games will be combined into simply the Paralympics.

          The video trailer highlighting the Tokyo games features Super Mario, who jumps into a nuclear reactor, using a corium to drill his way clear through the earth.

          Shitzo Abe then appears holding a glowing ball in his disintegrating hands as he assures the world that Tokyo air and water are perfectly safe and that fresh produce from Fukushima prefecture will be provided for participating athletes.

          I just can't understand the thought behind the US Olympic Committee. How can they send top athletes into this mess. Scott Blackmun is CEO and lives in Colorado Springs. There are 9 members on the US Olympic Ethics committee- Nina Keppel is Chair, Doug Brian, Tara Nott Cunningham, Kenneth Salomon, and Anthony Whitlmore. I wonder if they really understand the reality the athletes will face in Japan from Fukushima radionuclides. It is only reasonable to let each competing athlete decide if the situation they will be facing is worth their future health consequences if they choose to be involved in the 2020 Olympics. This information needs to be made transparent to all involved in the 2020 games.

            Good question. Maybe they don't know about this:

            Check out Bob Nichols' recent rad air readings for CO. Springs and Denver:

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              Bob Nichols rad data is dis-info. Too bad

              • HoTaters HoTaters

                Do you know what his sources are? Kind of reminds me of Brian (?) in CA who publishes the seemingly impossibly high readings.

                What do Nichols measurements represent?

                It might have been Greg's Lab which was publishing what seemed like absurdly high radiation levels.


                Not sure if he was publishing his own data (did he capture that data) or just data from NETC.

                Hmmn, perhaps mistaken. Someone in Cali was reporting readings over 1,000 routinely and was never able to determine if that was specious info.

                All that being said, Bob Nichols has done some good work in publishing articles.

              • HoTaters HoTaters

                Yes, Code, readings over 1,000 all the time seem impossibly high. But what is he reporting? What type of measurement?

                • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                  HoT, the Nichols data is somehow very missleading which leads to 'debunking' and this destroys the anti nuke anti fukushima effort. Its not a good thing. Toss in Leuren Moret to that camp. I dig Blanch but blanch loves Moret. Go figure

                • Greenbug

                  Bob Nichols mentioned his source a bit more specifically recently (his Radiation week 69/70). It is the EPA gamma data, but only energy ranges 4 and 5. It appears he adds these together, then adds beta readings (which are now no longer available but were much smaller than the gamma). The number is then compared to a beta-type instrument's normal level. The gamma instrument's normal level for these 2 ranges is close to 1,000, and this is where he loses credibility. It's too bad; his watchdog premise is good.

                  Netc shows the same EPA data but only energy range 5.

                  • HoTaters HoTaters

                    Thought that might be the case, Greenbug, as it's the only explanation which made sense to me. Readings in the thousands. Some areas now approaching 10,000 in the U.S. OK, that makes sense. 1,000 readings are actually quite low there, post-Fukushima.

                    • HoTaters HoTaters

                      Not sure what energy range I'm thinking of. Must be 4 or 5. I see what you mean about taking ranges 4 and 5 and averaging them. That's not a sound method for analysis. The data just doesn't hold up. It's measuring apples and oranges, and taking an average of an aplorange. With an accent on that first "a." Say it with a distinctly French accent, and it might even sound convincing.

                    • HoTaters HoTaters

                      Thinking of the upper Gamma ranges being near 10,000 in some U.S. cities now. Don't really understand the Gamma analysis. Not my area of expertise.

                      Can anyone please explain what the different ranges mean, represent, what kind of energy signatures they are? And what is being measured in each of those ranges?

                    • Greenbug

                      The EPA gives a very simplistic explanation <a href="; title="here">. Each radionuclide emits a unique signature defined by specific energies of the gammas emitted. Good lab instruments show a nice graph with signature peaks, but the EPA's system gives a coarse approximation with 8 'bins' or ranges. It allows limited identification; for example Cesium 137 will show an increase in range 5 only. Other radionuclides will have a different pattern. A mixture would be hard to identify, but it's better than just the gross value alone.

                  • HoTaters HoTaters

                    Thank you, Greenbug. Yes, now I remember watching Dr. Chris Busby and others showing gamma spectrometer readings. The different isotopes show up in the different ranges.

                    OK, makes sense now. Just don't see this often enough that it had made sense.

        Mr. Gunderson noticed the extreme radiation. Marco Kaltofen did great work documenting the extremely high radiation levels, particularly in the black dust. We have talked about how the black dust may be nuclear fuel, basically vaporized or atomized, existing now in nano-sized particles.

        Many radioactive isotopes exist in seemingly impossibly small atoms. Preposterously small atoms. Next to impossible to filter. Sub-micron sized particles.

        The ejected particles also "impossibly" small. See this Ph.D. study paper on Tritium, page 2. Note use of this term: "ejected beta particles." Note, for example, states in which it can exist.

        Just to illustrate what we're up against in trying to tame the radioactive beast.

        Not a big heavy metal fan, but Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla" comes to mind. We fight the invisible Godzilla.

          Found the statement on Tritium measurements (states, and size of gaseous particles), as an illustration. It is stated as measures of disintegration, not particle size. (Still working on that. Saw it somewhere recently, likely in discussion of Plutonium particle size). This discusses measurement of disintegration, Tritium in gaseous state.

          Pp. 5,6

          "Airborne tritium can take the form of elemental tritium, that is T2, HT or DT as well as the oxide form HTO, T2O or DTO.

          In the environment, the oxide form is bound to predominate, especially since the elemental form will rapidly combine with ambient moisture in the air to form oxides of tritium. Since it is radioactive it can be a safety concern depending on
          the way living things can absorb it.

          When breathed into the lungs, the oxide form is essentially totally absorbed where as the elemental form is mostly expelled. The oxide form is considered to be several thousand times more dangerous than the elemental form of tritium.


          Emissions from heavy water nuclear reactors not only contain tritium, but also carry varying amounts of other radioactive gases including carbon 14, Krypton 85, Argon 41, and Xenon 133.

          0.1μ Ci/m3 and less
          Restrictions under NESHAP regulations are even more restrictive, and can entail measurements of tritium to fractions of 0.1 μCi/m3. That's 0.1

            Airborne radioactive particles released by the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) accident in 2011 were collected with a cascade low-pressure impactor at the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) in Tokai, Japan, 114 km south of the FDNPP …. samples were collected twice … (from) March 17–April 1, 2011 … May 9–13, 2011 …. size-fractionated samplings … carried out in the earliest days at a short distance from the FDNPP. Radioactivity of short-lived nuclides (several ten days of half-life) was determined as well as 134Cs and 137Cs …. elemental composition of size-fractionated samples was also measured. (First collection) activity median aerodynamic diameter (AMAD) of 129mTe, 140Ba, 134Cs, 136Cs and 137Cs was
            1.5–1.6 μm … the diameter of 131I was 0.45 μm. The diameters of 134Cs and 137Cs in the second collection were expressed as three peaks at <0.5 μm, 0.94 μm, and 7.8 μm. The 134Cs/137Cs ratio of the first collection was 1.02 in total … the ratio in the fine fractions was 0.91. A distribution map of 134Cs/137Cs – 136Cs/137Cs ratios was helpful in understanding the change of radioactive Cs composition. The Cs composition of size fractions <0.43 μm and the composition in the 1.1–2.1 μm range (including the AMAD of 1.5–1.6 μm) were similar to the calculated compositions of fuels in the reactors No. 1 and No. 3 at the FDNPP using the ORIGEN-II code. The Cs composition collected in May, 2011 was similar …

            • HoTaters HoTaters

              to the calculation results of reactor No. 2 fuel composition. The change of Cs composition implies that the radioactive Cs was released from the three reactors at the FDNPP via different processes.

      HBH, i find it interesting that the article u linked from JT has zero comments. Not buying it. Does anyone else often scroll through a piece to see how many/any comments there are before deciding to read?

      Lively comment sections are becoming scarce, specially in larger MSM

      its the main draw for me here. No trolls, no peddled religion, no juvenile hostility will change that.

      Can anyone (everyone? 🙂 ) suggests sites that cater to the questioning mind that has a good robust comment section ? The kinda groups where stuff like 9/11 truth and ISIS being fake are basically a given. or at least those views get some airing in comments?

          As an example, here is a Free Republic posting of the current LA Times WIPP article along with some comments. As you read, there is certain bias, ignorance and elucidation attempts in the comments.

          The current news release about WIPP omits the original mission statement about only storing low level wastes in a test bed and when WIPP was allowed to begin storing plutonium wastes at the 'test' site itself. Also, long term permanent storage of barrels containing radioactive wastes which will be surround and encase in salt as the salt mine collapses, as intended and planned, is not mentioned.

          The entire project make no senses to me. I don't see why they don't close WIPP and go find another salt mine to contaminate as a cheaper alternative to repairing the current site. Of course, remembering, government never admits they are wrong when unlimited taxpayer funds are available as an incentive to continue the current lie(s).

    When nuclear particles enter nature's loop they continually cycle through the seasons. Blossoms will re-inject radio-cesiums into the surrounding environments for centuries (among other radioisotopes ex. strontium) until finally decaying away at some point in time.

    Most radiocesium(s), radiostrontium(s), Radioplutonium(s), etc., are not found in nature and therefore manmade (synthetic) due to results of the nuclear bomb and nuclear power energy generation industries.

    So, we have gone from zero exposure to constant exposure rates of manmade radioisotopes.

    I continue to be mystified at the general populace's inability to acknowledge the obvious correlation between synthetic isotopes and cancer? People here on the west coast is stupid.


    Radiation from the crippled reactors began to leak no later than 12 March 2011. The radiation release poisoned local water and food supplies and created a dead-zone of several hundred square kilometers around the site that may not be safe to inhabit for decades to centuries.
    Distance from Tōkyō to Fukushima is 239 kilometers.

    Emissions: advection, decay, dissolution, aerosol–aerosol coagulation, aerosol–cloud coagulation, aero- sol nucleation scavenging, rainout, washout, and dry deposi- tion of radionuclides.

    Atmospheric and ocean circulation, clouds, precipitation, aerosol processes, cloud processes, aerosol–cloud interactions, air–surface interactions.

    Fukushima Daiichi over the period 12 March 2011 to 12 April 2011

    Cs-137 emissions (Bq per day) – 1.696 x 10 to power of 16

    I-131 emissions (Bq per day) – 6.526 x 10 to the power of 16

    Stohl et al. [2011] predicted a Cs-137 emission rate roughly twice our emission rate using a similar methodology incorporating dispersion modeling.

    Modeled wet and dry deposition rates of Cs-137 were compared with observed daily deposition rates collected around Japan.

    Peak ground concentrations in Japan occurred on 15 March 2011–16 March 2011 when both emission rates and wet deposition rates were highest.

      Of total best estimate mortalities (morbidities), 48% (46%) was due to the inhalation exposure pathway, 33% (34%) was due to the ground-level exposure pathway, 19% (19%) was due to the ingestion pathway, and $1% was due to the atmospheric exposure pathway. We also find that over 90% of total worldwide mortalitites and morbidities are projected to occur in Japan.

    The plume covered large parts of central-eastern Honshu and crossed over Tokyo and other major population centers”, then “the plume penetrated inland, and covered large areas of eastern Japan…”, and the plume traveled “directly across Tokyo and even further south to Osaka, and Tokyo received an elevated Caesium 137 depositing”.

    Peer-Reviewed Study: Fukushima Xenon Radiation 2.5 Times Chernobyl


    At 14:46 on March 11, 2011, the great earthquake with magnitude of 9.0 occurred from a focus of Sanriku-oki. At 15:50, the great tsunami attacked Fukushima Daiichi and Daini Nuclear Power Plants. The emergent core cooling system did not work and lost cooling ability. Fukushima Daiichi had meltdown at Reactors 1 to 3, and a hydrogen explosion occurred, which made building structures flying to pieces and a big amount of isotopes leaking into the atmosphere. At 13:10 on March 20, Reactor 4 was fired. On March 21, it rained in the Kanto plain, and high concentration of iodine 131 was detected from drinking water in waterworks in the Tone river watershed on March 22 and 23.

    Main explosions occurred four times (Table 2). But, only reactor 4 explosion increased spatial dose, while other explosions did not increase spatial dose. Moreover, in reactor 4 explosion, wind direction was north.

    At 16:00 on March 15 it was rainy northwest of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. At 18:10, Reactor 2 exploded with hydrogen. Rain clouds passed over Fukushima city from west, and at 21:00 they caught pollution particles east of Fukushima.

    Sampling area
    Five river systems–the Abukuma River, Uta River, Niida River, Natsui River and Same River– were set up as monitoring sites in Fukushima Prefecture.

    The higher radioactivity for the waters of Lake Akagi-Ohnuma and Lake Akagi-Konuma was probably attributed to the stability of cesium in lake water as dissolved forms and the longer residence time (2.4 years) of lake waters.

    The percentages of particulate forms of 134Cs and 137Cs were 56–89% for the Fukushima river samples.

    That little bitty ole radioactivity will be virtually harmless in in a few dozen million years.

    Anyhow according to statistics in an article several years ago unless all nuclear plants are shut down we can expect a major meltdown or leak every 7-8 years so it's almost time for the next one, those pesky reactors can be re-certified but eventually they become giant nuclear jalopies that will eventually blow a seal or throw a rod and break down.

    Hopefully after a few dozen million years everything will all be pretty much harmless and at the same time the co2 levels should get back to normal and thousands of new species will hopefully have evolve despite the radiation,

    Too bad people probably won't be around anymore but anyhow things should be spiffy again in a cosmological blink of an eye!

    Pro-nuclear countries making slower progress on climate targets

    August 22, 2016

    A strong national commitment to nuclear energy goes hand in hand with weak performance on climate change targets, researchers at the University of Sussex and the Vienna School of International Studies have found.

    A new study of European countries, published in the journal Climate Policy, shows that the most progress towards reducing carbon emissions and increasing renewable energy sources – as set out in the EU's 2020 Strategy – has been made by nations without nuclear energy or with plans to reduce it.

    Conversely, pro-nuclear countries have been slower to implement wind, solar and hydropower technologies and to tackle emissions.

    While it's difficult to show a causal link, the researchers say the study casts significant doubts on nuclear energy as the answer to combating climate change.

    Professor Andy Stirling, Professor of Science and Technology Policy at the University of Sussex, said: "Looked at on its own, nuclear power is sometimes noisily propounded as an attractive response to climate change. Yet if alternative options are rigorously compared, questions are raised about cost-effectiveness, timeliness, safety and security.

    "Looking in detail at historic trends and current patterns in Europe, this paper substantiates further doubts.

    "By suppressing better ways to meet climate goals,…

    • rogerthat

      evidence suggests entrenched commitments to nuclear power may actually be counterproductive."

      The study divides European countries into three, roughly equal in size, distinct groups:

      Group 1: no nuclear energy (such as Denmark, Ireland and Norway)

      Group 2: existing nuclear commitments but with plans to decommission (eg Germany, Netherlands and Sweden)

      Group 3: plans to maintain or expand nuclear capacity (eg Bulgaria, Hungary and the UK)

      They found that Group 1 countries had reduced their emissions by an average of six per cent since 2005 and had increased renewable energy sources to 26 per cent.

      Group 2 countries, meanwhile, fared even better on emissions reductions, which were down 11 per cent. They grew renewable energy to 19 per cent.

      However, Group 3 countries only managed a modest 16 per cent renewables share and emissions on average actually went up (by three per cent).

      The UK is a mixed picture. Emissions have been reduced by 16 per cent, bucking the trend of other pro-nuclear countries. However, only five per cent of its energy comes from renewables, which is among the lowest in Europe, pipped only by Luxembourg, Malta and the Netherlands.

      The team say that the gigantic investments of time, money and expertise in nuclear power plants, such as the proposed Hinckley Point C in the UK, can create dependency and 'lock-in' – a sense of 'no turning back' in the nation's psyche.

      Technological innovation then becomes about seeking…

      • rogerthat

        'conservative' inventions – that is new technologies that preserve the existing system. This is, inevitably, at the expense of more radical technologies, such as wind or solar.

        Professor Benjamin Sovacool, Professor of Energy Policy and Director of the Sussex Energy Group at the University of Sussex, said: "The analysis shows that nuclear power is not like other energy systems. It has a unique set of risks, political, technical and otherwise, that must be perpetually managed.

        "If nothing else, our paper casts doubt on the likelihood of a nuclear renaissance in the near-term, at least in Europe."

        Lead author Andrew Lawrence of the Vienna School of International Relations said: "As the viability of the proposed Hinkley plant is once again cast into doubt by the May government, we should recall that—as is true of nuclear fallout—nuclear power's inordinate expense and risks extend across national borders and current generations.

        "Conversely, cheaper, safer, and more adaptable alternative energy sources are available for all countries."

    Dr. Alan Richard Miller has a good take on Fukushima: it's an extinction level event. He talks about some computer program they have developed that predicts the future at 99.9975% accuracy and recently it predicted an ELE.
    Fukushima was always an ELE. From the very second I saw #3 blow I knew we were done. All the talk and comments from us won't change a thing and I do believe that the powers that run this world are well aware of what is happening and are doing exactly as they please because they know in 10 to 30 years there's going to be nothing left alive.
    I think that the ones with power have their lifeboats. Dr. Miller says that Mars has been populated for years so if that's the case, that's where there headed.
    Fukushima continues to spew poison every second of every day into the ocean and our atmosphere. I've read lately that all that energy being released is what is actually causing all our problems with weather and is heating the ocean. Wouldn't that make sense? There's lots of decay heat. Surely by now there must be mutations showing up in babies. Are they covering this up too? Also there has to be lots of heart problems due to the caesium. Must have one hell of a good cover up system in place. Meanwhile back at the farm, life goes on as usual. TV, chips and a beer. Life is good isn't it?

      I've heard that they've been on Mars for around 17 years – and in general are now beyond the solar system. All funded by the working dupes. I'll guess longer than 17 if they're out that far. Logic dictates, in light of the real space program/breakaway groups, that earth is having it's status changed. Who knows what the et's role is in all of this. I've seen some craft so know something is up. They actually interacted with me but I couldn't discern any information.

      Seems clear a god like cavalry isn't going to show – unless those stories of et's checking out nukes etc are valid (and who knows what kind of spiritual forces are involved). Rather, it seems earth is more the farm for emotional juices (loosh as per R Monroe). In that light the misery and or indulgence may go on for some time.

      Ain't it curious and predictable that Arnie did this; with all the people similarly capable it's just him. Further, whenever I check (various) US rad station maps the levels are still rather low.

      They say all the planets are changing so something else is going on. Must be our trajectory through the galactic belt etc. All I'm concerned with apart from a perpetual survival mode mentality is to be more spiritually prepared for transition. Check out (Tibetan) Rainbow Body if you're interested in what the, imo, real elite are doing.

    link to Dr. Alan Richard Miller as requested. You'll have to look for the article on Mars. Very interesting take on unified theory as well. Very intelligent man who was very high up in US government.
    As to harsh environment on Mars, Miller worked on geodesic domes, one inside the other with water from Mars in between as a filter. Don't see why that isn't a workable thing and he says most are underground. Do you doubt that all the money that disappears every year from the US budget for "dark" projects couldn't be used for projects such as this. If you really want to listen to some amazing stuff on ET's, etc. listen to ex special ops Captain Kaye and there's another with a whole series on the new Roku channel Curiosity. The information is there and is it any less believable than four melt throughs and five years of endless radiation spewing into the environment? Who would have believed this prior to 3/11? I've also seen some very weird activity in the night sky. Could be from here but could as easily be from elsewhere. We're still pretty stupid, see 2020 Olympics and they were worried about Zika! Truth is stranger than fiction. I don't doubt for a second that we are looking at the end days of all life here except maybe jelly fish. That much plutonium is just not survivable. I mourn for the little children and babies that will suffer from man's greed. Thanks for the interesting dialogue. Better than the fights on Fuku Diary.
