More on Food contamination...





As an avid gardener...to not be able to eat the food you grow...inconceivable and heartbreaking.

Russian Bombers flying around Japan....



This is interesting. Kinda like China taking their naval ships into Japanese territorial waters....

Do you think Russia and China are suspicious of the radiation readings the Japanese gov't and TEPCO are reporting?

Poignant...




Each day for most of the past six months, there has been a steady drip, drip, drip of worrying news: cesium found in the breast milk of seven mothers; strontium discovered inside the city limits; 45% of children in one survey testing positive for thyroid exposure. There are reports of suicides by desperate farmers and lonely evacuees, contaminated beef smuggled on to the market, and warnings that this autumn's rice crop may have to be abandoned.


So much more...

Everyone I encounter in the US has no idea what is going on in Japan. It scares the living Sh!t out of me. How all of this information can be so suppressed? And these are highly intelligent, worldly folks. When TMI and Chernobyl happened they were over the headlines.

Yes Purple I totally agree on the lack of information in the US. I moved to Southern CA in June of ' 85.
I was very concerned when Chernobyl happened....it was in the MSM news, but I thought it was strange
how people reacted, as they didn't seem concerned, that we wouldn't receive enough radiation to cause any effect.
I for myself didn't know enough at the time so everything thing went along as usual.
I now truly feel like we are just scientific experiments, especially after reading about the cancer eating microbes.

Now we have Oil & Corexit eating microbes, Cancer eating microbes (these 2 supposedly new) & whatever
the Bloody Hell else they are doing to us & the rest of the World!

Radiation experts warns of further dangers at Fukushima. It's a good read for a change.

Update posted on the site you found AC:



9/9 I recieved a reply from Mr. Sonoda (Parliamentary Secretary). He said he saw this web site and would have a consultation about correspondence.


I hope he makes several copies of any photos or documents he has and tells a friend before he goes to any sort of meeting in case something happens to him.

Would hate to find a report of this person committing suicide or disappearing into nowhereland with no one to know where he was going.

Cheap Chinese made Radiation Detectors...30 percent lower than real emissions




I've just got my hands on a copy of this report. So, for anyone interested in this story:

A PDF file of japanese original can be downloaded here, at the bottom of the page.

There's a huge variation with the results that all of these nine models produce. Some are way up, some are way down. The trend seems to be "up" for atmospheric readings and "down" for cesium.

If you look at page 7, it gives you photos of the 9 tested models. The 10th is the control model. In the graphs that follow, the kanji 参考品 represents the control model.

The graphs are as follows (pardon the quick and dirty translation)
Page 9: (top): atmospheric/background radiation.
(bottom) atmospheric/background radiation (shielded measurement).
Page 11: Cs gamma irradiation test. Far right is the control sample (at the values listed)
Page 12: (top) Cs gamma irradiation test @ 0.115μSv/h
(bottom) deviation, Cs gamma (control is in red)

... this is suddenly an interesting problem. All but one returned elevated levels of background radiation, and that one model failed in a shielded test. Conversely, all models were too low when it came to Cs gamma.

From the sound of things, although some of these models were bought by local governments, there's no indication that their measurements were considered part of the official record. If nothing else, this may help explain some of the anomalous readings and hot spots we've been seeing reported online.

Might be worth looking through some of the youtube geiger counter vids and comparing them with the ones in the above list..

Large amount of Tuna caught in Onahama Port, meanwhile TEPCO releases 360 Bq/K cesium found in port soil



TEPCO's ocean soil sampling 3km off Onahama Port on September 8th, detects 170 bq/k Cs-134 and 190 bq/k Cs-137 (360 bq/k total).

www.tepco.co.jp...

Meanwhile this EX-SKF article rpts.


Onahama Port in Iwaki City had its first landing of 18 tonnes of shipjack tuna caught off the coast of Miyagi Prefecture. A quick testing was done by Iwaki Meisei University didn't find radioactive materials, and the fish were sold in the city and also shipped to the Tokyo region.


ex-skf.blogspot.com...

So no "radioactive materials" were found in the fish? Yet TEPCO's testing for just Cesium alone in the ocean soil came up with 360 bq/k....(they didn't test for strontium, americium and all the other goodies...)

Anyhow...maybe Shipjack Tuna are immune to radioactive substances!!!

Video showing where TEPCO excavated cliff to put Daiichi



In the very beginning of this video it shows the naturally occurring cliffs along the shore, and then where the cliffs were excavated to put the N-plant. Amazing. Japan had plenty of historical evidence when they built Daiichi and Daini that large tsunamis were prone to hit the area. A major human ego trip with Mother Nature!

Japanese Minister Resigns Over Gaffe



Barely a week after being appointed Japan trade minister, Yoshio Hachiro quit his post Saturday over controversial remarks he made after a visit to Fukushima Prefecture, rocking a new cabinet that was supposed to shore up a jittery and increasingly beleaguered administration. "I am very sorry for the series of inappropriate remarks that hurt the feelings of people in Fukushima," Mr. Hachiro said at a news conference Saturday evening, after a day in which calls for his resignation spread not only within opposition parties but also in the ruling Democratic Party of Japan.

"I told Prime Minister [Yoshihiko] Noda of my intention to resign, and he accepted." Mr. Hachiro's resignation over the gaffe, before Japan's parliament has even reconvened, will further strengthen the image of the DPJ as a party of political inexperience and incompetence. The development comes just days after Mr. Noda, the party's third prime minister in two years, was installed as an intended safe pair of hands to steady the DPJ's fortunes. On Friday, Mr. Hachiro described parts of Fukushima as a

"city of death"

after visiting the quake-hit prefecture that is at the center of Japan's worst nuclear accident. The remark was one of several comments that attracted sharp criticism for their inappropriate nature.

Sea Radiation from Fukushima Water Triple Estimated Amounts



apan's biggest utility company underestimated the amount of radiation levels in sea water by around three times, said Japan's Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA). Takuya Kobayashi, a researcher at the agency measured the amounts - measurements stated that 4,720 trillion becquerels of cesium-137 were released along with iodine-131 into the Pacific Ocean, but researchers say that between March 21 and April 30 around 15,000 trillion becquerels are supposed to have leaked.

78% of people worry about future big quake



Nearly 80 percent of Japanese worry that a major earthquake could occur in the area they live--the highest figure since 2002--and only 3 percent believe the Diet has done a good job handling the March 11 disaster, according to a Yomiuri Shimbun survey.

Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they are concerned radioactive substances that leaked from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant could harm the health of themselves and their families, according to the survey, which was conducted Sept. 3 and 4. The proportion of people worried about radioactive materials harming their health was highest in the Tohoku and Kanto regions at 76 percent. The figure was 51 percent in the Chugoku region and Shikoku, and 59 percent in Kyushu.

Although 82 percent of respondents said the Self-Defense Forces had performed well in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake, just 6 percent felt the government had done a good job--and only 3 percent said the Diet had done so.

A true pity is that so many of his predictions ( even as a pro-nuclear advocate ) have been vindicated , and by the way, after the nuke industry he works for has handled this situation in a way that will be skewered by historians I think he would be insulted by STALWART:

stal·wart/ˈstôlwərt/
Adjective: Loyal, reliable, and hardworking: "he remained a stalwart supporter of the cause".
Noun: A loyal, reliable, and hardworking supporter or participant in an organization or team: "the stalwarts of the Ladies' Auxiliary".


especially as Fukushima has ( and still F'n is ) change(ing) the world . perhaps you are radiation resistant
