      Remember this : they measure it but they don't send the sample to be analysed ! WTH ?!

      By now I would envision teams of scientists gathering data and starting public Advertising Campaigns exposing the facts .

      Do you know of such organization in Japan ?
      If it does exist , on paper , how come we didn't hear about it yet ?! The Salary of Fear ?

        I was sent this resin encapsulated sample of black fungus like material. It has reportedly come from somewhere in the Minamisoma area Japan. A contact in Japan sent a friend this sample.

        This is my test chart of it. For those of you who have not looked at a chart like this before. The position of the peaks in a the chart indicate what isotopes are present. This fungus started growing on the concrete, and rock surfaces in Japan after the Fukushima Nuclear disaster. It appears to be bio-accumulating Cesium.

          Black substance weight is unknown.

          Update on the possible weight of the Black Fungus sample from Japan. This comment was posted on a previous enenews forum discussing this test.

          “I’m an expert on weighing objects (sell scales, use different ones daily, some precise to .01g). Fungus in that form does not appear to hold too much water weight and would likely weigh less than a gram given the scale. If it jis thin and flakey type fungus, it may be under .25-.5g. Is it thick like a mushroom cap or more like lichen? I’ve only observed extremely thin fungi growing on concrete, and I would err on the very low side. My best guess is .3g.”

          My reply

          "That means the black fungus sample from Japan is very, very, hot.

          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."

            For safety the sample is resin encapsulated, this means the alpha radiation levels could not be measured.

            The black substance they are testing in this video could have a different isotope contaminants or ratios, to the sample I tested.

            The person who supplied this sample to me, went to a lot of trouble and expense, to make this sample available to researches in Australia. I would like to thank him for that.

            • Charles Charles

              I've been hearing a lot about a "fungus" that has been appearing everywhere. Has anyone thought that it might be something we can use to sop up the contamination?

            • Jay

              What A Lot of Trouble ? Picking it up , seal it in a sterile bottle and drop it at the postal office ? This is the trouble ?

              Or did he Walk from Japan to Australia ( with moments of swiming ) ? What a Lot of Trouble ??

              'Vital1' , you worry me when saying " The person who supplied this sample to me, went to a lot of trouble and expense, to make this sample available to researches in Australia. I would like to thank him for that. "

            • Jay

              Is collecting Samples in Japan a Covert activity ?
              And submiting it for analysis a Felony ?

              'Vital1' , why did your friend had to send the sample to Australia for analysis ? Are you saying there is no trustworthy scientific organization in Japan that does what your friend did ?

              Hard to believe , but that's the flavour of your story .

      Repost from last year:

      Is it possible that these bacteria are same or related to the earliest cyanobacteria lifeforms on earth that sequestered radioactivity into the ores that are now mined to concentrate into fission products. Perhaps we are seeing a simple process of 're-emergence'. Like any opportunistic species, 'plenty' (as in 'lots of') may be stimulating a population explosion, similar to algal bloom in a waterway with excess nutrient in it. Now that there is a massively increased 'food source', so there is a 'bloom' of the cyanobacteria that were only 'subsisting' all these millions of years.

      Are we watching the 'repeat re-engineering' of the planet? After taking billions of years to sequester radiation and produce oxygen, thereby creating our atmosphere which protects us from space radiation, we have reintroduced acutely toxic radionuclides within our atmospheric defensive membrane? Human intelligence test = epic fail.


      • omniversling


        This could be more likely than the fallout from incineration, or fallout flake from the steaming coriums of Units 1 and 2. Unless that is being very rapidly transformed into cyanobacterium 'nutrient'.
        Radioactive black dust was also observed and measured at the British nuclear tests in Australia in the 1950s. Is it possible that this is a result of the MOX fuel in U3, which I understand is similar in composition to some early weapons test material?
        I've also read that the black substance is the oxide ashes formed when they make a cheap plutonium bomb that uses lots of uranium in proportion to Plutonium. The salient point of this is that the MOX ratio of PU is about the same as the early bombs (as I understand it), about 7-10%).
        You can see a reference to it here as the black substance rained down on australia during the Maralinga tests. Go to about 13 minutes into the video and listen for about 1 1/2 minutes. You will be shocked. The out of control reactors in Fukushima (U3 at least) are burning cores made up of weapons mixes.

        Peace everyone…thanks Admin for such a valuable forum, thanks posters…love being part of this clan of concerned angry ones…

        • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

          Very observant and this black fungus will now travel/grow throughout the entire world and its already been seen in California. It can be seen growing on many things and as this radiation contamination bioaccumulates in the ecosystems, so will the fungus growth rate increase in the fallout/exposure areas affected around the world.

    • Trawling4Trolls

      Has this substance been noted before in that area? Only noted in the Minamisoma area? DNA tests done it by anyone?

  • DannieJ DannieJ

    Yes, extremely mysterious.

    I mean, it's not like a reactor detonated in a mushroom cloud or anything.

  • weeman

    Radioactive dust from the continual splitting of atoms and it is uncontained. Radioactive dust to radioactive dust and all it daughters, not good at all.

  • FukuYou FukuYou

    Well, that was extra scary.

  • Urban27

    It has been black substance reports many times here – and it is mostly with high radioactivity. Maybe it gets dark because of the high radioactivity.
    Radiactivity kills organic things, and also helps oxidation..
    Just a thought..

    • Time Is Short Time Is Short

      And some things, such as some forms of cyanobacteria, thrive on radioactive substances, absorb radiation to extremely high levels, and reproduce, to be spread with the wind across large landscapes and through ocean currents.

      The future of the Earth is this cyanobacteria and fungi, which seems to have a high threshold for radiological contamination.

      And that is it.

        The new add campaign by the demented…Black radioactive fungus is good for you……AS black radioactive fungus takes over this planet…You think im kidding???

  • Sickputer

    Let's see… What is black and gets dispersed from incinerator stacks? Oh yeah… Soot ash.

    And what have they been furiously burning all across Japan since the middle of 2012?

    Answer: radioactive-impregnated tsunami debris

    "The protest in front of the main gate of Hiagari Incineration Facility in Kita Kyushu City was the latest in a divisive debate over the effort to ship roughly 20 percent of earthquake debris from the Tohoku region (where Fukushima is located) to municipalities around Japan for incineration. The plan, which calls for shipping the debris as far as the southern most island of Okinawa, has been promoted as a symbol of Japan's national unity and collective reconstruction effort.

    While debris from Fukushima will not be incinerated in the program, due to high radiation levels, municipalities and citizen groups are worried that even debris from neighboring Miyagi and Iwate prefectures could be contaminated enough to be too hazardous to process. Many fear that doing so will not only release radiation into the local atmosphere, but also concentrate it into highly irradiated ash that would be difficult for local municipalities and garbage companies to dispose of safely. "

      but, the black radioactive substance was discovered before the burning of debris began….

      Radioactive black fungus in Japan, blowing to the US

      [snip]It was shown in a previous post here that an astounding amount of fungi were transported across the Pacific from Japan to the US in spring 2011. It is springtime again, and this is the season for fungus transport.[snip]

      • Sickputer

        Yes, but where does the black fungus buildup now after those first March-June massive air emissions? Maybe from the soot of incinerators. I would like to know details on the location of this latest black hotspot? Do we know?

        • pcjensen

          somewhere in Minamisoma, maybe Ex-SKF or SimplyInfo knows, that article by Bobby is not specific – but knows the source of the sample… and by the way – found this while searching

          MOX negotiations continue as Moniz heads for confirmation

          Nick Juliano and Hannah Northey, E&E reporters
          E&E Daily: Wednesday, May 15, 2013

          [snip]Graham has said it would be too expensive to abandon the MOX project, but he acknowledged more should be done to bring down its costs, which have grown to nearly $8 billion from initial estimates around $5 billion. He said talks with the White House were ongoing but declined to provide specific details.

          "I don't want to jinx things," Graham said yesterday when asked why he would not elaborate on the negotiations.[snip]

    The open air environment has now become one big nuclear reactor… with all sorts of unplanned for elements in the mix (including people).

  • TheBigPicture TheBigPicture

    The radiation can't be stopped. It's spreading.

    • The point is.. it's plutonium.. requires more Boron in the cooling water.. THAT eats the fittings in concentrations we need for regular rods.. so now lets do 10X as much… see how many things it gets to eat! Then they will start having failures every single DAY !!!!

      The other issue is they run HOT !! And also extend the cool-down times in the pools after. They also make all rods run with them DIRTY Not that they are "Clean" normally… but much worse in a MOX core.

      Just FYI.. we DO have some of our plants here running such MOX Rods… but they been keeping a lid on that factoid !!!

      They PLANED to have ALL our plants run it in time. INSANITY !!!

    The yellowcake produced by most modern mills is actually brown or black, not yellow..

    Yellowcake is used in the preparation of uranium fuel for nuclear reactors, for which it is smelted into purified UO2 for use in fuel rods for pressurized heavy-water reactors and other systems that use natural unenriched uranium.

    Purified uranium metal (not the uranium oxide) can also be enriched in the isotope U-235. In this process, the uranium is combined with fluorine to form uranium hexafluoride gas (UF6). Next, that undergoes isotope separation through the process of gaseous diffusion, or in a gas centrifuge. This can produce low-enriched uranium containing up to 20 percent U-235 that is suitable for use in most large civilian electric-power reactors..
