      I'm sure this is all just more "delusions" and CGI/media created hoaxes.

      It probably has something to do with "liberals" or "environmentalists" you know, those groups that hate people or something like that.

        Remember,

        for the Thorium types it is also about 'innovation' and 'regulation', 'free markets', 'capitalism'.

        Remember it.

        It is also about the DOE 'betraying' them, the Thorium Salvation types.

          TEN MYTHS ABOUT THORIUM AS A NUCLEAR ENERGY SOLUTION
          “Thorium may be abundant and possess certain technical advantages, but it does not mean that it is economical. Compared to uranium, thorium fuel cycle is likely to be even more costly. In a once‐through mode, it will need both uranium enrichment (or plutonium separation) and thorium target rod production. In a breeder configuration, it will need reprocessing, which is costly. In addition, inhalation of thorium‐232 produces a higher dose than the same amount of uranium‐238 (either by radioactivity or by weight). Reprocessed thorium creates even more risks due to the highly radioactive U‐232 created in the reactor. This makes worker protection more difficult and expensive for a given level of annual dose. Finally, the use of thorium also creates waste at the front end of the fuel cycle. The radioactivity associated with these is expected to be considerably less than that associated with a comparable amount of uranium milling. However, mine wastes will pose long‐term hazards, as in the case of uranium mining. There are also often hazardous non‐radioactive metals in both thorium and uranium mill tailings….

          “8. Attempts to develop “thorium reactors” have failed for decades. No commercial thorium reactor exists anywhere in the world. India has been attempting, without success, to develop a thorium breeder fuel cycle for decades.

            Other countries including the US and Russia have researched the development of thorium fuel for more than half a century without overcoming technical complications.
            “9. Fabricating ‘thorium fuel’ is dangerous to health. The process involves the production of U-232 which is extremely radioactive and very dangerous in small quantities. The inhalation of a
            unit of radioactivity of thorium-232 or thorium-228 produces a far higher dose than the inhalation of uranium containing the same amount of radioactivity. A single particle in the lung would exceed legal radiation standards for the general public.
            “10. Fabricating “thorium fuel” is expensive. The thorium fuel cycle would be more expensive than the uranium fuel cycle. Using a traditional light-water (once-through) reactor, thorium fuel
            would need both uranium enrichment (or plutonium separation) and thorium target rod production. Using a breeder reactor makes costly reprocessing necessary….”

              So long as there is sun, water, and wind, there is energy to be had. What is the thorium nuclear argument, even? That it will kill LESS people? Apparently that is not even true,; but even if it were, would that just make the proponents "somewhat" less sociopathic?

              Remember this too for the trolls, the DOE abandoned thorium because of compassion for the thorium salvation types, not wanting to subject them to the dangers of U232. The DOE's altruism defeated thorium's offer to "burn up" plutonium.

The reason behind this message is to inform people all around the world of exactly how bad this contamination is, the same reason for your decision. We need more people who were directly effected by the multiple reactor meltdowns to step forward and share their story like you have shared a brief part of your story. The people who are trying to bury the facts are not afraid of one, two or hundreds of similar stories. Thousands and hundreds of thousands of similar stories could make them change their plans to continue operating their civilian nuclear power plants.

    The radiation dose someone would get from eating tuna tainted with pollution from Fukushima is far below the levels that should cause health concern.

    This is the conclusion of researchers who have measured the radioactivity in marine organisms, notably tuna, caught in the Pacific Ocean since 2011


    Report comment

    • Hmmmm, interesting… What about the sum total of all heavy metals and toxins received when eating tuna? Combine the radiation with mercury, plus who knows what else, and the conclusion will be very different.

      Mercury alone is present in tuna at high enough levels that it would be foolish to eat it more than a MAXIMUM of once a week, if that. Pregnant women and those breastfeeding should probably avoid eating it at all.

      Do a hair analysis of those eating tuna regularly.. The body does not lie. Heavy metal and radiation poisoning will show up in those eating top of the food chain foods, such as tuna… no exceptions.

    I have been visiting this site shortly after the disaster happened.

    I have only now made the decision to sign up to share my story of what happened at this time in Japan as I was living there too in Saitama Prefecture but had to make the difficult choice to evacuate.

    I was teaching at the time and when the earthquake hit everyone had to go under their desks. We thought it was going to be alright but the shaking didn't stop. When we went downstairs to check the news, the reality hit at how bad the situation was. People were on the tops of high rise buildings driving in circles because the water level was almost at the top of the buildings.
    Helicopters circled overhead waiting to rescue them.

    That night I was supposed to go to a concert in Tokyo, I stupidly decided to drive to Higshimatsuyama station and saw the sign in Japanese saying that the earthquake had hit and that they didn't know when the trains would be back up and running again.

    Then another quite big aftershock hit, I decided to drive back to my apartment. When I got back I had no power and the town was completely black, it was freezing cold outside as well and there is no insulation in Japanese houses or apartments either. I messaged my friends and family alot at this time and I said I will message you again when I have power as my phone was about to die.

    When I woke up the next morning, I had power and was able to charge my phone, only then did I realize that things were worse than before due to…

    the Nuclear Plant explosion.

    For a few days I didn't go to work and the other teachers couldn't understand why. The kids knew that things were really bad but not the adults.

    I compared the Japanese and Western news religiously and everyday felt like it would be my last not knowing if another earthquake would hit or more explosions would happen.

    Finally I made the choice to leave Japan, but before I did, I said my goodbyes to my teachers. The siren went off in our town to tell us to stay inside due to the radiation in the rain, we had to wear long sleeve clothing and gloves and masks and stay inside, this happened the night before I left!!!!!!!

    Our town was 200 km away from Fukushima but I never felt safe, I felt like my mind was going to explode every second due to the fear of dying and the unknown effects of radiation (at the time).

    My friend picked me up at 4am and took me the train station to get a bus to the airport. When I was at the airport, I messaged my future girlfriend and said my goodbyes, she said it was best for me to leave Japan too. I still miss her but I know its not safe to go back.

    While at the airport another 6.5 earthquake hit, some flights were cancelled, many Chinese couldn't go home. I saw a Chinese woman wearing a full radiation suit walking around at the airport too…very scary indeed.

    I also knew that the Japanese were afraid too, many left Japan at this time and those that did knew a little bit of English, just listening to…

        At that time, everyone was in full on panic mode…due to rolling blackouts and power cuts too, there was a lack of information, nobody that wanted to leave really had much idea of what was going on…the radiation suit was a protective measure against a fear of the unknown I believe…and trust me, if you were there, it was a constant state of your mind working overtime trying to better comprehend what had just occurred and what was going on…so perhaps it was unnecessary for her to wear that suit at the time but in her mind it was the best thing to do…

        There was also panic buying of water, petrol, bread and snack items too…very very bizarre to see cars all lined up for petrol and no one where to go as the petrol was sold out in most places around my town…

        I still have photos from that time, if anyone is interested in seeing them, just how busy the airport was and the panic buying of food…and my bus ticket to the airport and the final shots of the plane before I left…sigh…

                  Next week I will also be teaching Japanese Accountants again, I never bring up Fukushima intentionally because I'm supposed to be helping with Business English, however on occasion they will bring the topic up themselves.

                  Many of them don't want to be in Japan but have to because of their jobs or commitments to paying off their apartments/houses but they are very concerned.

                  Their reactions are vastly different than the ’しょうがない’(It cannot be changed, so we might as well get on with living and working) reaction that many showed in late 2011.

    their conversations in Japanese (as I am also fluent in Japanese), I knew that they were smarter than the average Japanese who decided to stay behind.

    I left Japan on the 16th of March 2011 and for 6 months I couldn't function properly, the main reason was 5 months before the disaster happened, I had a vivid dream of a huge disaster hitting Japan involving water, I saw the time but not the date, and then 5 months later Fukushima happened. I told a few people about this in Japan after I had the dream and they decided to make preparations to leave too because I'd had those kind of premonitions before and something always happened afterwards.

    I even went to a counselor to talk through the guilt I felt for leaving Japan. It helped a little bit.

    To this day I will never forget the horrors I experienced or the destruction I saw, I still inform people that the truth is available about the ongoing effects of radiation spreading like a cancer over the globe, surprisingly more people than I thought listen to me and take me seriously, I just hope they inform others as well.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Thanks for welcoming me…it was difficult for me to write my experience down but I'm glad that I was able to do it in the most concise way possible.

    I actually had another very vivid dream before that one too about water and one of my Japanese friends. I had a horrible feeling and woke up at 3am one morning and checked my phone and I had received a message from her. I warned her to be wary around water. A few weeks later, I had the main dream about water and a huge disaster in Japan.

    I think these dreams come from my Dad's side of the family as he has had similar dreams before. In fact yesterday he dreamed about a disaster hitting Auckland city, and he said he went to work and the first thing someone asked was 'are you prepared for a disaster?'…very spooky.

    I am still in contact with many Japanese friends in Tokyo and other places, and they say nothings been done either but they have to stay there because they have limited English skills…its a very sad state of affairs regarding how they think.

    I want to just take them all and bring them into New Zealand but I know that's impossible…I guess I still feel survivor guilt…even though I know I had no choice but to leave by myself.

        I also remember giving 600 NZ dollars to the charities for the relief effort in Fukushima before leaving Japan, then I found out months later that most of the money people donated didn't go into rebuilding homes or relocating people…I was and still am furious about that…

        If you want to see a good movie that is very much anti nuclear about people living in Fukushima and Japan…I recommend

        'The Land Of Hope' by Shion Sono.

    well the movie is not so much about people living in Fukushima but the resemblance is what the director was trying to show as the town itself is called something different…he also made another movie called 'Himizu' which is more about the effects of people living in a region that has been contaminated and wiped out…both are very interesting and are well worth your time…

    'The Land Of Hope' is the more effective of the two, I feel.

        Yes I feel that is the intended effect…the final scene of 'Himizu' is heartwrenching and the final scene of 'The Land Of Hope' is horrifying…

        Himizu deals more with the mental state of people dealing with this sort of disaster and how hopeless their lives now are whilst 'The Land Of Hope' focuses on different characters and offers a broader but nonetheless intense portrayal of the disaster and what is really going on in Japan.

        Both films are very strong and left a great impression on me, even for someone who has not had the misfortune of going through this kind of disaster as it happened, they will still drain you emotionally but are very necessary in trying to advocate some outcry about the danger of Nuclear power.

        Thank you Anne.

        Most of my friends are from Korea and Japan here, and even they say its not safe to go back because they worry about the radiation.

        In fact one of my Chinese friends is leaving China to go to America or Spain because of her concern regarding radiation, I'm not sure how her husband will feel about that but regardless, there are people who are more aware of what is going on.

        However people who were born here generally have no idea about the ongoing crisis or have wiped it from their memory, I try to inform them but they usually don't listen, I'll keep trying.

        The setting sun photos are the saddest for me because of their implications. I would have taken more photos but at that time it was almost too terrifying to comprehend what was going on. I remember sitting in my car outside a train station waiting for the shaking to stop from another artershock, at that moment, I realized I would probably never come back, so I took some photos, not so much as a reminder but as a timeline of what I survived.

        Others suffered much more than me and others will suffer a much worse fate in the future due to cancer and fallout, so I was very lucky to have the courage to evacuate as I had been there for 2 years and planned to stay forever.
