Japan Discovers Plutonium Far From Crippled Nuclear Reactor, Wall Street Journal, October 1, 2011:

Trace amounts of plutonium were found as far as 28 miles from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear-power plant, the first time that the dangerous element released from the accident was found outside of the immediate area of the plant.

The science ministry report issued Friday comes just as the government lifted one of its evacuation advisories, underscoring the difficulty of restoring normalcy and assuring the safety of residents around the crippled plant. […]

the latest discovery is a potentially disturbing turn, as it shows that people relatively far from the plant could be exposed to more dangerous elements than had been previously disclosed. […]

    Got another TOOL saying there has been no deaths. Dang it all. I need you Bobby! 🙂

    • Sickputer

      That has always been their ace in the whole for 40 years… Prove the dead bodies were killed by radiiactiviy. With an invisible agent like radiation the denial factor makes it “nearly” the perfect murder weapon.

      60 years of independent studies prove a causal death effect and Japan will soon join the data ranks in excess deaths. Other data is already available and even the liars at the IAEC, their partners in crime WHO, the EPA, CDC, FDA, and the NRC are unable to suppress independent studies. The goverment agencies have a vested interest in deceiving the public and their studies are designed to protect the nuclear industry and their own jobs.

      Thus because they are liars protecting an industry determined to suppress dissent, we must reject their publicity and rely on independent organizations like the RPHP.

      Excerpt:  “In USA Newborn Deterioration in the Nuclear Age: 1945-1965 , RPHP found:

      “…a cumulated excess of about 1 million infant deaths over the 50 year postwar period, attributable to exposure to all post-1945 releases of chemical and radioactive pollutants.”

      http://www.radiation.org/about/index.html

      Many other  independent studies listed by RPHP showing excess deaths…

        Sorry… Make that ace in “hole”. ..damn iphone keys

        Other typos… Radioactivity. Government

        Just hard to type on 3-inch screen..but convenient

          POSTING TO HP. I’ll get accused of SKEWING THE NUMBERS but how can you refute THESE facts?

        • ocifferdave

          Sickputer, that’s my problem too. I had to turn off the iPhone’s need to correct/suggest the wrong words. Life is a bit better now…still hard to type tho.

    No, you were right to ask here. There has been better info. here, than all those “35%” articles.
    We’ll find it,…it’s here in the goldmine of info!

    • NoVictimNoFraudNoCrime

      Wow! This is awesome. But unfortunately I expect it will be quashed by the globalists and not become available to prevent a descent into the next Dark Age. Or, maybe it will be usurped by the globalists and sold to us at an enslavement price. Either way, Globalists – 1, The-Rest-Of-Us – 0

    BULL F#@KING S%#T!!!!!!!!!!!

    First time they have admitted the fact! I think its much greater than Japan and Canada/America. Think more along the lines World contamination! Japan and the other clowns know it = MURDER!

    I WANT TO SLAP ALL THOSE IGNORANT BASTADS OUT THERE IN THE FACE.

    Sorry. But… seriously. Friends, family, colleagues – everyone just gives me a strange look when I bring Fuku up. I am SO fed up. Mankind is such a failure.

    • ocifferdave

      At least I have my wife…she will even ask once in a while how Fukushima is. My 3 year old knows how to say Fukushima…knows not to go outside in the “Fukushima rain” when it rains. Wife had some stomach pain and a white blister on the side of her tongue two days ago…we threw out the carrots after that…they happened to be from CA. 🙁

      • StillJill StillJill

        Yes officerdave,..I relented and accepted a smoothie made with unwashed cali strawberries last week. Swear to God, the cesiyummmmm almost killed me the next three days trying to rid myself of. It killed my liver again,…I turned yellow.

        • ocifferdave

          If people wonder why some get sick from CA radioactive food an others don’t, each one of us is different. Case in point: Not ALL babies died that were born the 10 weeks after Fukushima…but many more died than statistacly normal on the West coast and in Philly. Some people can’t handle their radiation, others can…for a while that is.

      Me too, B&B. And in honor of October 1st–big anti-nuke day for activism–let me repost this SNL piece with Jimmy Fallon and Eddie Vedder. In the spirit of your post, B&B…
      I’m called paranoid and get the rolling eyeballs all the time.
      Here’s a little something back at ’em. (‘hot particles’ or ‘fuel fleas’ may be substituted for ‘tar balls’.

        midwestern,
        thanks for that 🙂
        a laugh was much needed here!!!

        I just found disturbing news on German media: apparently, 4 big premier league soccer games scheduled for last weekend in November have been cancelled “due to a cross-country safety issue”…

        This “safety issue” might very well be the next nuclear waste transport across the country, which date has been a secret so far to prevent our protests. Last year, protesters gave them a VERY hard time, blocking rails and streets and keeping 30.000 police staff busy for 3 days. We’ll see…

    Thanks Doc,…This line jumps out at me, of course.

    Ain’t this just Feaking great? (Pardon the vernacular)

    White House petition – End nuclear power – please sign!

    http://wh.gov/4HA

    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
    End the use of nuclear energy in the United States.

    The best available science has taught us that radioactive substances are extremely hazardous to human health. Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, the ongoing crisis in Fukushima, as well as recent U.S. nuclear accidents can leave no doubt — nuclear energy is neither safe nor clean. Please end the use of nuclear energy, and use the funds currently invested in advancing nuclear power to support safer alternatives, such as wind and solar.

    ********************

    If anyone here has time to spread this around, I’d be grateful. Unfortunately, I just don’t have time to publicize this much at all. This week it’s plumbing problems and a sick child — “real life” just doesn’t give me enough hours in a day. So, if you support this petition, please spread the word!

    Thanks very much!

    **********

    Dear friends,

    I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a
    new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your
    name to mine? If this petition gets 5,000 signatures by October 30, 2011,
    the White House will review it and respond!

    We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama
    Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets
    enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

    You can view and sign the petition here:

      Hi Erin – woohoo! We only need 4 more signatures!! And October’s only just begun! I say “we” though I can’t sign from Europe, but I mean WE the anti-nuke family!

      Cheers

      • Erin

        Actually, it only HAS four signatures so far. LOL We still need 4, 996 to get a response from the WH.

        But thanks a bunch for your support! Based on the many posts I’ve read from you, B and B, it’s definitely “WE” 😉

        • BreadAndButter BreadAndButter

          Oh NO! I totally got it wrong 🙁
          LOL anyway. 4 signatures is nothing to get excited about…

          Thanks Erin

      Must be corrupted. I could not sign in. You only have 12 signatures.

    • Cataclysmic Cataclysmic

      Wow…what an ordeal, I am sure not intentional. Took days. Had to agree to updates from Mr. O and the likes at the white house. also had to sign out and then sign back in..good luck finding the dang petition… finally with perseverance..and history.. managed to get the dang thing signed… I am sure it is meant to be easier…

      hahahah!

      We need to start a petition page here that we can then submit to the White House.. who really does not want to let down the war born nuclear power industry of death and destruction.. and malformations…

      I used to wonder how my Grandmother got bone cancer. I no longer wonder. She spent child/young adulthood in Texas/Ok in the cloud of above ground testing fallout.

      • Cataclysmic Cataclysmic

        oh and woo hoo.. 39 others had made it too. Should be a total of 40 folks who managed to keep at it and get their names on. Wonder how many tried and gave up.

  • Tanuki San

    I’m sorry but how could they not know this? Duh!!! I remember it being announced pretty early on that they found plutonium from Fukushima in the U.S., so obviously there’s going to be a lot more of it in Japan. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out!

  • ocifferdave

    We are all “F’d” anyways, so we will just lift the exclusion zone and let everybody go back home to die:

    Plutonium is circling all over the world..

    We all know there were:

    accidents
    experiments
    A-bombs..

    ..involving plutonium 238, 239, 240 and those are just the ones that are made public so cover ups and top secret experiments are there also.

    Plutonium has a half life of:

    Pu-238: 87.74 years
    Pu-239: 24100 years
    Pu-240: 6560 years

    Cesium 137 has half life of 30 years
    Strontium has a half life of maximum 65 days

    So the plutonium MUST be present everywhere because: See above.
