Narrator: 10 days after the nuclear explosion, the black dust in Fukushima flew all the way to Chiba Prefecture, 200 kilometers away. Since then, Chiba Prefecture has also been shrouded in horror […]

Keiko Shibata, Shiroi resident & 3-time city councilwoman: This is where the so-called black substance piled up. Its amount reached 4.5 microsieverts per hour […] This is quite common in Shiroi.

Narrator: […] When [Chinaru Hasegawa] asked the city government to measure the radiation at her house the results came back as normal. But, her own gauge showed that radioactive contamination in here home was above 0.23 microsieverts per hour.

Chinaru Hasegawa, Shiroi resident: […] In our house they measured one meter above the floor. It’s presumed to be nonexistent if the radiation doesn’t exceed 0.23 microsieverts per hour one meter above the floor […] Whatever they say, I always have a feeling that they’re not telling the truth […]

Narrator: It’s been 2 years have passed since the nuclear disaster. Many residents wish to forget the horror because that’s the only way they can lay down their worries […]

Naomi Ito, Shiroi resident: Everyone here looks somewhat damaged by the radiation. […]

    I hope all who missed this first time around watch it.
    As for the black stuff, let me speak for the gov't –

    It's Manna from Heaven!
    Food of the Gods!
    It's Cosmic Hashish!
    Return of the Blob!
    It's melted Blackbirds!
    Dehydrated spiders!
    It's licorice curds
    dropped by Mystery Outsiders!
    It's airborne black pepper
    from factory processing!
    It's crumbling shoe soles –
    just please stop obsessing!
    That's radio-noia and bad for the health.
    It might even be a source of new wealth!
    If it's not, we'll decontaminate
    by choosing low-bidder,
    a Yakuza contractor rad-waste getter-ridder.
    No need to examine what's radioactive,
    that gets in the way of being proactive.
    We'll have kids sweep it up-
    we'll make it School Project!
    And have teachers make sure
    no one will object,
    by bullying, shunning and humiliation!
    Just stay where you are with no compensation!
    That's life when the Nukists have domination.

      At least, one can't deny the black substance is some miraculous magic potion. It brings out the best in poets!

    The pieces of this story are so gingerly released that the average Josephine may not put it all together.

    The Zeitgeist creates so much chaos that ordinary people don't think outside of the stream.

    For example: Sarin gas going into countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Israel… etc, is enough to cause a neighbor to break out the masks, just in case.
    … and get the Secretary of state on th line while you're at it.

    Nations sometimes have to be persuaded by means of a credible deterrent. Japan is of this order.

    Fukushima could bring a situation into which nations actually go to war.

    I was sent this resin encapsulated sample of black fungus like material. It has reportedly come from somewhere in the Minamisoma area Japan. Here is the test results. This image is copyright free, so you can use it where ever you please, to inform people of the seriousness of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster.

    We don't know the weight, but using these educated estimates, the black fungus sample from Japan is very, very, hot. You wouldn't want to be breathing it in as dust, or ingesting it!

    Test results 117 Bg Cs-137 and 58 Bq Cs-134

    117 + 58 = 175 Bq x (1000 grams/0.3 grams) = 583,333 Bq/Kg of Cesium

    Even if it was 10 times greater in weight 3 grams, it would still be 58,333 Bq/Kg of Cesium.

    You can find the full report, as well as many other contamination reports, at "The Food Lab."

    The radioactive black stuff is there.

    And the authorities will say and do what they want.

    Bottom line, nuclear is dangerous. And radiation is invisible.

    Nuclear creates paranoia, and the only way to get our earth back is to outlaw nuclear.

    That is the only way.

  • ftlt

    There was a few year outright denial period after Chernobyl – in the West – even though it was the RED COMMIE BASTARDS…

    Now like there, they will now begin the seeming to be engaded in the open process of reporting the canned truth – while all the while – they are scrubbing and minimizing the true damages and health stats…

    Same old same old

  • Lying creates paranoia. Lying about strange black stuff and melted out reactors described as cold shutdown conditions and not telling for two years radiation was bleeding into the Pacific. You say radiation paranoia is gripping Japan? What do you expect?

  • rockyourworld

    we should name the black stuff alqaeda, call it a threat to big oil, er i mean the homeland and the govt will send in the military to fight it over there so it wont attack us here!

    Alea iacta est.

    The die is cast.
    Fate will have it's way.

    Funny.. how living creatures..have this will to continue living.

    And now what…?
    Is humanity going to stand up…and become the sentient touted by self-proclamation.
    Or die ..sub-vermin?

    PS..And for those complicit in the accident and cover-up of Fukushima Npp…take a clue..

    Wasn't this black substance identified as ancient Cyanobacteria that feeds of the initial radionucleides that are given off by fission, like, Cesium, Tritium, Strontium, and Iodine 135. This fungus like material looks like dirt and blooms sending highly radioactive spores into the air when it is disturbed. This is what I had read, is this no longer factual?

    • vital1 vital1

      The Black Fungus like material sample that was sent to me in the report I posted above, is encapsulated in resin for safety reasons. I do not have the facilities to safely test if it is Cyanobacteria.

      • vital1 vital1

        Also, the Gamma scintillator test equipment here would not detect Tritium, or Strontium as they are pure beta emitters.

        The general conciseness is there is a ratio of 10/1 of Cesium 134/137 to Strontium fallout on land after an event like this.

        You need very expensive equipment identify the amount of Strontium that may be present in a sample.

      I always read that this black substance is referred to as 'black rain' and a known type of fallout. How it reacts with the environment in different ways is interesting but it came from the 1&3 reactors exploding.

      "Kaltofen: …this tells me that this particle contains not only fission waste products from the reactor but very likely contains a concentrated unburned nuclear fuel. And that’s unusual. This sample had by far the highest level of uranium daughters that we’ve seen in a dust or soil sample. We’re actually seeing material that might well have come from inside a failed fuel assembly.

      Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds’ Chief Engineer: Okay. When I hear that, that’s clear evidence that the containment was breached. The interesting thing to me is that when I hear black, I think of like algae or fungi or something like that. But you’re saying this is not an organic substance. Is that right?

      Kaltofen: No. It’s not an organic substance…

      Gundersen: Are these particles light enough for people to ingest them or breathe them in?

      Kaltofen: Well, certainly they could be ingested […] right now I would say they’re much more an ingestion hazard. And that usually tends to target children….

  • vital1 vital1

    Sorry typo conciseness should be consensus.

    The general consensus is there is a ratio of 10/1 of Cesium 134/137 to Strontium fallout on land after an event like this.

  • FXofTruth

    The general consensus among the enlightened…we are so screwed!

    We were warned about these dangers but, people trusted their Governments. Translation: They didn't want to deal with the tough questions and deferred to the "career politicians" to do their bidding for them. Didn't work too good in this situation did it?

    Even commenting on this situation is really just venting. The people that read this site are awake and all the rest are…living in their dreams of buttercups and butterflies!

    It's all too late to do anything to correct this expanding nightmare. But we do have GE's CEO's speech to fall back to and those ridiculous words telling the World that, "It will be all cleaned up and better than it was before!" What a screwball he is.

    Corium (AKA the melted inside of Fukushimas reactors) produces the black crumbled material, uranium oxide. See the testing for the nuclear research, page 4.
    One has to wonder where the black dirt came from, since denial is the usual method of handing a nuclear disaster. Could uranium oxide be the particles? And of course, would a type of mold live on it?

    I believe that the black dust is what is left of the nuclear fuel it has been turned to dust, in a chain reaction you have neutrons smashing atoms, over and over again, eventually the particles are so small and positively charged they escape and attract negative charged particals or visa verse, does it matter.

    I think it is fuel dust, too, weeman. I first saw it puff out of reactor 4 in Dec. 2011, then by spring 2012, it was coming straight out of the ground. This describes dust production as a central property of corium, you can't have corium without black dust:

    March 26, 2012 at 7:29 pm · Reply

    Corium (and also highly irradiated uranium fuel) has an interesting property: spontaneous dust generation, or spontaneous self-sputtering of the surface. The alpha decay of isotopes inside the glassy structure causes Coulomb explosions, degrading the material and releasing submicron particles from its surface.[42]
