  • Better radiation education needed to end prejudice

    Based on lessons drawn from the Fukushima accident, children should be taught what to do when evacuating in the event of a nuclear accident and how to protect themselves from radiation.

    webmasters comment:

    Government of Japan helped by slimy mainstream media is commiting genocide against its own people. Period.

    Just look at those government nuclear shills in the above video. And the answer to the cries for help is more propaganda.

  • Many farmers crushed

    "I haven't earned anything since we were instructed to voluntarily refrain from shipping. I desperately want to ship out the cows before they die," he said.

  • Nation hit by A-bombs placed big bet on nuclear power

    On the July 23 broadcast of a TV debate program, Italian journalist Pio D'Emilia asked, "Why did a nation that has the legacy of Hiroshima ever allow so easily the construction of nuclear power plants?"

    A response was given by Michio Ishikawa, a supreme adviser at the Japan Nuclear Technology Institute who was born before August 1945 and who was involved in nuclear power development from the earliest stages after the end of World War II.

    The gist of Ishikawa's response was that in his generation many nuclear energy researchers were in Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, when the atomic bomb was dropped, or in Nagasaki three days later when the second bomb was dropped. All those researchers became involved in nuclear energy on the grounds of "peaceful use" of the technology and to use it to improve people's lives, Ishikawa said.

    "peacefull use" was nothing but a cover to continue with development of nuclear weapons. Nuclear power remains the most ineffective way of boiling water.

  • Flustered Fukushima farmers up to their ears in radioactive bullsh*t

    “We’ve run out of space to store it,” frets a 75-year-old farmer in Date City, Fukushima Prefecture, who tends a herd of some 70 cattle.

    His bovines’ digestive systems are remarkably productive, generating two tons of excrement per day. This material, rich in nutrients, is normally recycled by selling it to vegetable growers.

    But as the Nihon Keizai Shimbun (Aug. 16) reports, on July 22, farmers were ordered to halt shitments — sorry, we meant shipments — of the stuff until it could be determined it was free of radioactive cesium and thereby safe to spread.

  • Fukushima officials worry new discovery of radioactive beef will harm reputation more

    FUKUSHIMA -- Officials here are disappointed that a new discovery of radioactive beef shipped from a Fukushima Prefecture farmer was discovered and caused the central government to delay lifting the ban on the prefecture's cattle shipments.

    the only real "discovery" in Fukushima will be something that is NOT radioactive.

  • Tsunami was tracked by radar for first time - PHOTO

    Scientists in California got an early look at the tsunami generated by the massive earthquake in Japan as it rippled across the Pacific Ocean.

    The March 11 Japan tsunami was picked up by high-frequency radar in California and Japan as it swept toward their coasts, according to U.S. and Japanese scientists. This is the first time a tsunami has been observed by radar, raising the possibility of new early warning systems.

    webmasters comment:

    I guess this can also serve as a radiation dispersion model.

  • "Never Give Up, Fukushima" Sign Right Next to 10-Plus Sieverts/Hr Location

    On the "Never Give Up, Fukushima" screen, Obara says the photo was taken before the 10-plus sieverts/hour location was found just nearby. The workers in the photo never knew about the radiation, and were never told about it even after the announcement by TEPCO, which was on August 1 evening.

  • Fukushima Aftermath

    Radiation exposure, how are the children doing and what is the Japanese government doing in light of the Fukushima disaster?

    With another earthquake, TEPCO assures that it has not added to the Fukushima disaster however at this point one wonders if it can get much worse. That is until you see the pictures of children lining up to get tested for radiation exposure, results that Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission refused to release. Mark Willacy ABC’s North Asia correspondent noted that Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission even went as far to remove the data pertaining to the results from its website, citing privacy reasons.

  • Lasers unlock nuclear fuel, new risks

    In a little-known effort, General Electric has successfully tested laser enrichment for two years and is seeking federal permission to build a $1 billion plant that would make reactor fuel by the ton.

    GE, an atomic pioneer and one of the world's largest companies, says its success began in July 2009 at a facility just north of Wilmington that is jointly owned with Hitachi. It is impossible to verify that claim because the federal government has classified the laser technology as top secret. But GE officials say that the achievement is genuine and that they are accelerating plans for a larger complex at the Wilmington site.

    "We are currently optimizing the design," Christopher Monetta, president of Global Laser Enrichment, a subsidiary of GE and Hitachi, said in an interview.

    The company foresees "substantial demand for nuclear fuel," he added, while conceding that jitters from the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan "do create some uncertainty." GE made those reactors.

  • 4,000 Potentially Radioactive Cows Without Radioactive Rice Hay May Have Been Shipped from One Farm in Namie-Machi, Fukushima

    Radioactive beef from Fukushima meat cows (then Miyagi, then Iwate, then...) was first in the news in early July. Then, the culprit was very quickly identified as radioactive rice hay that was stored outside when Fukushima I Nuke Plant started to spew out radioactive materials.

    First they said the rice hay was fed to the cows because there was nothing else to feed due to supply disruption after the March 11 earthquake. Then it turned out that rice hay was integral part of fattening the meat cows before they were sold to the market.

  • #Fukushima I Nuke Plant: Toshiba's SARRY Joins the Underperformers at the Plant

    TEPCO released the result of the decontamination by Toshiba's SARRY (cesium absorption) after the start of the full run, and it was OK (according to TEPCO) but not as spectacular as the manufacturers (Toshiba, IHI, and the US's Shaw) had claimed.

    SARRY achieved the decontamination factor (DF) of about 50,000, instead of 1 million the manufacturers had confidently hoped. The DF of 50,000 means that the system was able to reduce the amount of radioactive materials (in this case, cesium) to one-50,000th after the treatment.

  • Fukushima early stage China Syndrome 'clearly a concern': Expert

    Fukushima 'seriously out of control,' nuclear industry seriously in control of global media blackout Since Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear energy plant has reportedly released 20 times the radiation contamination amount of the Hiroshima bomb, and its molten core is sinking through the Earth's crust, it appears to be in early stages of a "total China Syndrome meltdown" according to a Russia Today report Thursday during which Beyond Nuclear's Paul Gunter answered why media is blacking out the catastrophe, as noted by numerous scientists, and he revealed the increasing threat of a nuclear explosion.
