I asked a man from Japan how he felt about Fukishima, and his country's sinking landscape.

Chernobyl was a warning and the world didn't listen.
Fukushima was a wake-up call and the world didn't listen.

Nuclear power plants the world over are built on known faults, many of those in America.

Now, our government wants to allow Canada to plant an oil pipeline five feet underground all the way to Texas. The fracked oil is so thick, it has to be diluted with Benxine to get it to flow through the pipes, which will be running right over the top of the Ogallala aquifer, and the world isn't listening.

I hope Mother Earth can survive. I have little hope that humanity will; we don't listen.

Two thoughts come to mind.

1) He is from a culture that is very optimistic, and they are being told as he told you by their media.

2) He is a "local" and in the US, we don't like that it happened, we may be afraid, or angry that their problem can, is, or will affect us here at home. I wouldn't go as far as the media is responsible for this, because remember when everyone was complaining about the MSM not reporting anything for awhile? They saw us complaining, so gave us what we wanted. Doom Porn.

My father, and other friends parents, even a few friends worked in nuclear plants in my area. If there were a leak, my Dad told me even 30-40min away we would be "safe", although we wouldn't stick around until we knew the extent of the situation, and I doubt I would move back. That'd be my sign to experience another part of the country.

On a large scale Mother Earth and nature always survive. Single species on earth die out and are after a long while replaced by something else.

Well i think its a huge problem for the whole world. I watched a video from top nuclear physicists and engineers and they said its catastrophic. We have never had a nuclear spill that has dumped 300 tons of highly radioactive water in to the pacific everyday for 2 plus years. I really do think he only knows what tepco and the government are feeding him and his neighbors in his area. The fact of the matter is that we dont know yet what the real damage is/or going to be because weve never had a problem like this. this is different than three mile island Chernobyl. This is not a Japanese problem this is a world wide problem and we should have the best minds from every nation working to solve it.

About Japan's sea level and weak foundations...


I am reading that it really tilted on the east into the ocean, while the west, and the mountainous areas, actually rose.


Hey I had a quick look and couldn't find any vids of what it looks like today. How have they coped with the roads and pavements bobbing up and down like that? I am assuming it still is 3 years later?

As any science journal will tell you the only dangers posed by Fukishima are for the people in the immediate area as part of the clean up. I think that people sometimes forget the US, UK and France have set off over 300 nulcear weapons in the Pacific any one of which was worse than what happened at Fukishima. The fact is the Pacific is massive and easly able to disipate radition safely. So let us just put this in perspective.

You are right i didnt even think of it that in those terms when i wrote that comment, but that fact is that 300 tons of highly radioactive water has been dumping into the pacific nonstop for years and we have no idea where its gonna stop and or what the effect will be on oceanic life.

Do you guys think that all this fear is unfounded? I think it is a problem that will have lasting impact on our environment, but not world ending. But i have not learned as much as possible about this besides reading articles. What do you guys think?


Interesting question. I'm wondering if there is something else going on.

As terriblyvewed said, "However I will say this, what he said to you could be his own government propaganda, that like so many of us, he just accepts it."

All that we know about Fukushima is just our own version of government propaganda. Who is right, and who is wrong? I'd be more inclined to trust the Japanese government.

I have not a clue of how the Japanese government have dealt with that craziness. From the top of my head, the only way they can deal with that is through mother nature hitting a bowl, and chilling out for a bit. Or, they throw the money up, and get to work solidifying entire landscapes with extra concrete or whatever, so it would be more difficult for sea water to bust through the ground like that. But sadly, i doubt that was done though.

I can only say that the sea has calmed down some, and does not have the very ground the Japanese walk bobbing around like damn plank on water. For now, though.

But isn't the Japanese governments version of things that everything is all good, and not that bad, and that TEPCO is kicking radioactive ass?

But does radiation really just dissipate? Doesn't that stuff stick around? I mean it's millions of gallons, of radioactive waste, radiating far and wide into the ocean. Fish are turning up not safe to eat, and then there are nearby islands too. I don't want to invite more doom than is welcome into our collective house of sanity, but there mus be more to that.

Plus we still do eel the effects of the atomic testing back then, in the form of various cancers.

I'm friggin with you. Dafuq is the need for nuclear material anyway beyond horrendously blowing stuff beyond kingdom come? Why the need for so many?

The thing is, the people who have ruled this world for thousands of years follow the spirits of evil. That is why humans who see nothing but profit from misery governs. That is why only the worst will rule, and they make sure this happens all over the world, in other countries. Unfortunately, they have old, well established knowledge of how to manipulate and the mold the collective mind. So the rest of us humans coincide and live under this evil. Talk to the average person, and all you might get is "it's te way it is, that's how things work". That's it. No further thought, no possibilities of why. They know, nor do not want to know, anything else.

My sister lives in Hawaii and there are a lot of garbage from Japan's earthuaqe this year. That means radioactive diluted streams got there too. Well, she says there are a lot less fish and a lot more sick cetaceans where she works (on Sea Life). So the problem is cesium and strontium and plutonium work their way up from the food chain and are more concentrated in some marine life than in others.

I just watched a youtube video ,the content is a Japanese women who lived in Fukushima said some many people suddenly died around her for no reason in Fukushima .
But The video isn't English ,if I post it here ,mods would remove it again.
edit on 24-5-2014 by candlestick because: (no reason given)

I live here in this country and have for many years. All governments will lie to its people for certain reasons, whether it will be economics or even the politician and their families to escape first and then let the news hit the fan when any disaster happens. I don't know anyone in the stock market here, but I often thought those with quick info were able to get rid of their stocks and after that, it seems like everything went downhill fast from there on. ( info was starting to be aired differently)
What is true, no one knows exactly how to tackle this situation perfectly because it is all new and problems arise weekly here, whether it be workers being skimmed of their paychecks by the contractors that hire them, to the shortage of labors. That is what we hear, not too much about the dangers that lie waiting not only for Japan, but for the whole world. I just bought some summer tea for ice tea. I don't even believe the location on the package is true, but what can I do.

I also did see pictures of items and debris that came from Japan on another website. Alot of it.

And that is a big worry for me, other than peoples lives. The damn sealife. I'm worried about the intelligent sealife like seals, whales, dolphins, squids and rays, and i'm worried i won't get to eat any awesome fish, crabs, mussels...

There we go, this is in addition to the children and elderly with failing thyroids, bleeding out of their nose. There are a lot of sick people down there, and not in the immediate area. So i am wondering what the people who say this is not as disastrous as is being said will say to this.
