  • Fukushima: Public reaction symptomatic of mind control

    There are many people who claim that "there is no such thing as mind control", and all of that is some basic "conspiracy theory". But, mind control has become in the view of elites, a vital part of propping up self- serving agenda of the global capitalist system. The lack of effort by elites to redress the spread of the Fukushima crisis is consistent with an apparent calculation by elites that the radiation depopulation of biological life on our planet is in their interest.

  • Fukushima City kids should not have to choose between radiation and education

    The children of Fukushima City are due to return to their schools this week despite the continued contamination of school buildings by radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

    Just over a week ago, our radiation experts found dose rates exceeding international safety standards at several schools, as well as many public areas in Fukushima City; this is why we are calling on Japan’s incoming Prime Minister, Yoshihiko Noda, to keep the area’s schools closed until they are properly decontaminated. No parent should have to choose between radiation exposure and education for their child – yet this is the decision facing thousands of parents.

  • 3 Fukushima nuke plant workers blasted with beta radiation

    At least two workers at the crisis-stricken Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant were blasted with more than 15 millisieverts of beta radiation on Aug. 28, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) has announced.

    Two of the men were replacing parts of a system for decontaminating radioactive substance-contaminated water when they were irradiated. One other worker with them at the time also likely absorbed a high radiation dose, and his exposure level is now being checked

  • Call for tougher nuclear rules

    Fillon said: "France must continue to benefit from this energy source while complementing it with renewable energy and ensuring the safety of nuclear facilities."

    Nuclear power faces increased criticism from the Socialist party. Martine Aubry says France should commit to ending its use of nuclear power.

    She said: "With what happened in Fukushima, things can't be as they have been previously."

  • Worker Died of Acute Leukemia, TEPCO Said in Aug 30 Press Conference

    But the doctor assured the company that the death had nothing to do with having worked at Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant.

    The unnamed worker died in early August, after having worked at Fukushima I for about a week. TEPCO's Matsumoto says the company does not know where the worker had worked before he came to Fukushima I. He's from one of TEPCO's 1st-tier subcontractors.

  • Dr. Shunichi Yamashita's March 21 Talk in Fukushima City

    Professor Yamashita's speech on "Fukushima as Number One" was meant to cheer Fukushima City residents (he's from Nagasaki, and always prefaces his talk with the Nagasaki and Hiroshima atomic bombs).

    As I've said before, it was a bad, bad timing. March 21 is where the second largest spike in air radiation took place in Fukushima, part of Tohoku and most of Kanto, thanks to a certain event at Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant which hasn't been fully disclosed. (All we have from TEPCO is that there was a black smoke, then gray smoke, then white smoke rising from Reactor 3 on that day.) Fukushima City residents braved the rain to attend the lecture.

    The doctor looks rather ill at ease.

  • Soil Contamination in 34 Locations in Fukushima Exceeds Chernobyl Confiscation/Closed Zone Level

    In one location, the contamination level is more than 10 times the Chernobyl level.

    What a surprise. Now that PM Kan is out, the government dribbles out the information that it withheld as it de-emphasized and even attacked the reports of high soil contamination as measured by private entities including citizens' groups.

    The most contaminated location found so far is Okuma-machi, where Fukushima I Nuke Plant is located: 29,460,000 becquerels per square meter with cesium-134 and cesium-137 combined, 15,450,000 becquerels per square meter if only cesium-137 is counted.

  • NRC Report: Transformer “explosion” near turbine building at Maryland nuke plant

    “At 2248 on 8/27/2011, the Unit 1 Reactor experienced an automatic trip due to loss of load. This trip occurred due to a phase to phase short on the main generator output step-up transformer that resulted from a large section of turbine building siding breaking loose in high winds from Hurricane Irene and impacting the transformer. This impact resulted in an explosion (briefly until the trip removed power from the impact area) which met emergency action level declaration criteria A.U.6.2.2, ‘Unanticipated explosion within Protected Area resulting in visible damage to permanent structures or equipment.’ The Unusual Event was declared at 2302, 8/27/2011. Follow-up investigation determined no fire resulted from the explosion.

  • Quake-hit Virginia nuclear reactors “in an unanalyzed condition that significantly degrades plant safety”– Data shows quake may have exceeded design basis

    On August 23, 2011 at 1351 hours, North Anna Power Station experienced a seismic activity event which resulted in a loss of offsite power and automatic reactor trip of both units. At 1403 hours, an Alert was declared. based on Shift Manager judgment, due to significant seismic activity on the site. Subsequent to the earthquake, both units were stabilized and offsite power was restored. Following the event, seismic data was retrieved from the installed monitoring system and shipped to the vendor to determine the response spectrum for the event. On August 26, 2011 at 1340 hours, initial reviews of the data determined that the seismic activity potentially exceeded the Design Basis Earthquake magnitude value above 5 Hz. Therefore, this is reportable per 10CFR50.72(b)(3)(ii) (B) for the nuclear power plant being in an unanalyzed condition that significantly degrades plant safety.

  • Why the Fukushima disaster is worse than Chernobyl

    Yoshio Ichida is recalling the worst day of his 53 years: 11 March, when the sea swallowed up his home and killed his friends. The Fukushima fisherman was in the bath when the huge quake hit and barely made it to the open sea in his boat in the 40 minutes before the 15-metre tsunami that followed. When he got back to port, his neighbourhood and nearly everything else was gone. "Nobody can remember anything like this," he says.

  • Officially Declared Nuclear Nightmare

    Nothing good about the nuclear news at the end of August as we have official recognition (finally) of what is going on in Japan and thus what is threatening the rest of the world, especially the northern hemisphere. It is now being said that the amount of radioactive cesium that has leaked from a tsunami-hit nuclear plant is about equal to 168 of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima at the end of World War II, Japan’s nuclear agency said Friday the 26th.

    That’s like dropping one nuclear weapon a day since the beginning of this disaster and this is what they have been calling safe, no problem, don’t worry about it, go home and go to sleep. Dr. Chris Busby tells us in the above video that he himself went to Japan with very sophisticated equipment and found areas in Tokyo that were 1,000 times higher than the exclusion zone around Chernobyl.
