Daily life in Fukushima: ‘It was like visiting another universe’, RussiaToday, July 3, 2011:

Jan Beranek, part of Greenpeace team investigating Fukushima fallout

  • Hotspots up to 500-700 times what is normal.
  • This is just unbelievable, at those levels of exposure this is certainly risking the health and lives of people.
  • Soviets decided to evacuate everyone that was living in areas where radiation was 3-4 times lower than what is found in Fukushima City.

    I’m sure those hotspots are everywhere and baffled why they haven’t been discovered and publicized.

      i posted a number comments and links at this headline..from comment 22 and down…the information would go equaly here!!
      particulates do not lay themselves down evenly. more often than not the lay in odd patches and concentrations..if there was thourough testing i fear that the contaminated area could get larger. the solution would be to go the testing and isolate specific areas before attempting clean up or isolation…the solution to these problems are being denied because of the lies and manipulation of the people…what a self made perpetuating tradgedy!! 🙁

    • And now for a brief humour break…

      Forget hotspots, cause it’s time for “hot”-selling caramels from Fukushima!!

      => July 4th: “Fukushima firm struggles to revive hot-selling caramels”


      “The company, which used to produce electronics parts such as displays for mobile phones, resumed the production of caramels the day after the earthquake-triggered disasters hit the region. However, because radioactive cesium exceeding the government’s provisional limit was detected in basic ingredients from Fukushima Prefecture the company could not get fresh cream produced by a firm in the prefectural city of Koriyama. The company then started to use fresh cream from around the country on an experimental basis, but it has yet to produce caramels that taste the same as those made before the disasters struck.”

      => Whaddya know? The caramels made after three nuclear meltdowns happened (and are still happening) in the local neighborhood don’t “taste the same”. Wonder if that fresh cesium is making those fresh caramels not “taste the same”?

      Seems like “hot” is the new key-word for radioactive yummies, based on the title of the article. I’d personally not too keen on eating (or even being around!) anything that “hot”. Thanks, but no thanks!

    Shameful. Absolutely shameful and corrupt. The main stream media that is told what to do by the govts is just horrible. Lies and yellow journalism is the result.

    Call them, email them, and write. Tell them they are spewing YELLOW JOURNALISM and the time they take to report what they think is news is a waste of time and energy.

    Pray people for a peaceful 4th of July. Make it family and community if you can and live it in the highest quality of what it is. Independence Day. May we become independent again from the tyranny of govt babalonians and the kow-towing yellow journalists.

    Oh, and as far as what the highest priority on the pyramid is, and what the babalonians are really preparing for, here comes the Lord!


    Peace be with you ALL!

    “Authorities must put public health before Politics” LMFAO Thats a good one. For a real belly-laugh try this:

    “Authorities must put the welfare of citizens and the nation as a whole before their own personal Grand Theft of the public funds”. If you ever see that in print it will certainly be TEOTWAWKI.

  • SteveMT

    To find these hot-spots, the government and TEPCO have only to look for them. Either Greenpeace is fudging the data and making false accusations or the Japanese are still in denial. A Geiger counter will provide the truth.

      jtn A,
      With a dose of 45 Gy (according to Wiki) hair can fall out. Surely there are no kids still at that school. It must just have an monitoring post situated there. The graph is showing accumulated dose up to 1000 Gy unless I’m very much mistaken.

      • Mats

        Mikro Gray. 1/1000000 Gray.

        So 1000 MikroGy = 1 Milligray.

        Too much even for older people, much more worse for children.

  • Ariana

    This just makes me physically ill! It is so hard to grasp that a nation like Japan would do this to their people. The USSR was a poor nation. They did what had to be done. Why is the government so dead set on killing their people? The almighty dollar. I’ll bet those officials are hanging out in their own fallout shelters or lounging on a beach somewhere in Tahiti. They will get theirs. It may not be there for all the world to watch, but these crimes won’t go unpunished… even if it is by the hand of God.

    more superb work from russia today.
    they are simply the only game in town.
    i spoke to an old friend at the bbc and he really did not know much about what is happening in japan.
    another success story for the lockdown.
    what you can be 100% sure of is 100s of people in the bbc news departments are fully aware and will have been briefed.
    and although a lot of them will be married with children,they have choosen to be complicit in an active cover up for the sake of a pay packet.

  • Finch Finch

    No I do not think they want to kill their people! They simply have no scheduled plan what to do. And Japanese are conditioned to follow plan. There is no plan for a nuclear meltdown times four! Blame them for having recieved no plan from their overlords.

      An older man interviewed 24km north of FD, said ‘I have survived war and know how to survive and what it takes to survive (earthquakte/tsunami), in war a bullet is shot and kills the opponent. But, the radiation kills, eeeeeeeveryone'(waving his hand over the land) He knew what was happening. By far the most scary and humble comment I have seen yet.
      Another father stated that ‘they tell us it is safe behind these doors and unsafe beyond them. How can that be?. My point is that the people do know they are being misled/misinformed but after so much devastation where to go what to do? This culture is not as mobile as the US. Pray for everyone.
      Do not hate these people, there, but for the grace of God go I.

  • tony wilson

    well the guys at the guardian newspaper seem to think everything is cool at the site apart from a few minor technical issues.

    1: Jet streams are not carriers of Fukushima fall-out. In nature, only very strong volcanic eruptions are able to penetrate into tropopause where jet streams circulate around the planet. The answer is no.

    2. There’s no “hot corium magma” any longer and it has not escaped the containment

    3. The temps inside the reactor vessels in recent days have measured 90-130 degrees C. Unfortunately, I’m unable to quote the exact figures right now.

    4. Concrete does not melt as such, but as the reinforcement steel inside will lose strength in high temps, the structures typically will fail under load. You’ll actually find the core of the Chernobyl reactor in the reactor building basement as of today, and for some years to come.

    5. Any debris that is not transportable right away will be left to cool down until it’s safe to handle. Thereafter, it will follow the path of all used fuel.

    6: There have been no casualties or people falling severely ill, so far, so it could be far worse.

    7: I don’t understand the question. There will be some construction activies on the site for several years at the least.

    8: Chernobyl did not have any atmospheric containment structure at all, so even this primitive one in Japan is a huge improvement. Maximum dosage limits are and have been operational.

    9. The scare pictures I’ve seen on Youtube etc that are purported to show “genetic mutations from Chernobyl” have depicted quite ordinary birth defects.

    10. I’d love to, bu the idea of high-rise buildings and the ground swaying personally scares me. I would actually be travelling for far lower background radiation when travelling to Japan.

    • milk and cheese milk and cheese

      I don’t know if that is you or the Guardian talking. Are you answering their questions? No casualties? No one falling severely ill? 30 people have gone missing, several workers have died, and we hear no more about the people who put their bare feet into radioactive water, etc. Those are the ones we know about.
      The effects of radiation are cumulative and the damage occurs over time. Not in the jet stream? I’ll trust Arnold Gundersen over the Guardian, thanks, even though I think it is usually a reputable newspaper.

      keep up the good work bro! people can easily confuse concerned with crazy..this info will help those kids. these are the only channels open to us to make a difference(no matter how seemingly small)…there are important points to make..the nuclear lobby are not as well protected as they would like and it is obvious that thier justifications are crumbling, as is thier support!! peace!
