NRC continuous emission limits for reactors/re-processors/licensees
(followup to youtube link in my above post).
NRC title 10, code of federal regulations, part 20 appendix b. Right down the bottom of course.
Z or silv may have linked this around pg1000? not sure.
The concentration values given in Columns 1 and 2 of Table 2 are equivalent to the radionuclide concentrations which, if inhaled or ingested
continuously over the course of a year, would produce a total effective dose equivalent of 0.05 rem (50 millirem or 0.5 millisieverts)
Per nuclide! Internally. In enough time and concentration, you are walking dead. 'NRC shuffles the joker back up the sleeve'
Click table 1, 2 3 etc to access emission limit tables for the biggest list of radionuclides I've ever seen. It's bigger than wikipedia and all the
rest, that's for sure!
Convert uCi/ml to Litres by X1000.
E.g. Cs137 in water 1e-6X1000 = 2.478µCi per litre of water. All day. Every day.
Lets look at strontium, one of our favourites: 5E-7x1000 = 4.559µCi per litre of water. All season. Every year. Per licensee. I haven't touched the
air emission levels, don't want to scare you all
Funny how they love using the smallest practical units like tepcon. No doubt tomorrow it will be updated to nanocuries per quajiggalitre to confuse us
mere simpletons further.
In summary it appears a slow motion Fukushima has been occurring since we first ever used these terrible machines. I knew of some releases of noble
gasses, didn't expect everything to be coming out though. But why wouldn't it come with the rest anyway? They can't filter the water/air completely
with civilian technology, no matter what. This helps explain how cancer rates stayed so high, even after 1960s atmospheric fallout declined until
Fukushima. They leak everything we have been looking at and more, continuously. Dan Hirsch admitted that some reactors often breach these limits too.
After all the shouting is over, the grim silence of facts remain. Joseph Conrad
To really understand the present, which was the future yesterday, one must learn from the experiences of the past.
We once were told something to the effect: “the present exists but for a fleeting moment, the past is but a memory, dead and gone forever,
therefore, the only thing one can affect is the future.”
Even if Chernobyl did kill 200,000 people, compare and contrast that with the numbers killed by smog every year...
We couldn’t help but shudder when we read this.
Gotta love the nuclear industry advocates’ sense of responsibility.
Speaking of Chernobyl, let us wander down the halls of yesteryear for a moment, thinking that perhaps we might learn a thing or two.
Depending on which report one is to believe, there were over half a million liquidators who
cleaned up Chernobyl and the surrounding area after the accident. They were almost all young men at the time.
In an early 2000’s study, 60,000 had died and 165,000-200,000 were believed to be permanently disabled, despite most only being in their 40’s and
Thus, speaking about liquidators, one should remember that the Chernobyl liquidators are a very vast group, embracing hundreds of thousands of
people, most probably more than 0.5 million and less then 1 million. — “... there has never before been such a large population of workers exposed
to radiation” (Goldsmith et al. 1997: 52; emphasis added).
In the city of Chernobyl there stands a simple memorial to the liquidators who rushed to reactor number four in the immediate aftermath of the
I prefer the words of Alexey Yablokov, member of the Russian academy of sciences, and adviser to President Gorbachev at the time of Chernobyl:
[color=Chartreuse]'When you hear 'no immediate danger' (from nuclear radiation) then you should run away as far and as fast as you
Five years ago I visited the still highly contaminated areas of Ukraine and the Belarus border where much of the radioactive plume from Chernobyl
descended on 26 April 1986...
It was grim. We went from hospital to hospital and from one contaminated village to another. We found deformed and genetically mutated babies in the
wards; pitifully sick children in the homes; adolescents with stunted growth and dwarf torsos; foetuses without thighs or fingers and villagers who
told us every member of their family was sick.
This was 20 years after the accident but we heard of many unusual clusters of people with rare bone cancers. One doctor, in tears, told us that
one in three pregnancies in some places was malformed and that she was overwhelmed by people with immune and endocrine system disorders.
Others said they still saw caesium and strontium in the breast milk of mothers living far from the areas thought to be most affected, and significant
radiation still in the food chain. Villages testified that "the Chernobyl necklace" – thyroid cancer – was so common as to be unremarkable; many
showed signs of accelerated ageing.
The doctors and scientists who have dealt directly with the catastrophe said that the UN International Atomic Energy Agency's "official" toll, through
its Chernobyl Forum, of 50 dead and perhaps 4,000 eventual fatalities was insulting and grossly simplistic.
The Ukrainian Scientific Centre for Radiation, which estimated that infant mortality increased 20 to 30% after the accident, said their data had not
been accepted by the UN because it had not been published in a major scientific journal.
Would one of the more-informed members please help us here and explain the ‘process’ of being accepted for publication in a major scientific
journal? How many of these ‘accreditied’ journals are there?
Is there an editorial board that makes a decision as to publishing ‘controversial’ information?
We found this: “Requiring a paper to have been accepted for publication in a quality journal means it has at least passed a minimum
The question we have might be: Who exactly sets the bar for “minimum requirement?”
Konstantin Tatuyan, one of the "liquidators" who had helped clean up the plant, told us that nearly all his colleagues had died or had
cancers of one sort or another, but that no one had ever asked him for evidence.
There was burning resentment at the way the UN, the industry and ill-informed pundits had played down the catastrophe.
What he saw in those years, he says, appalled him: young men dying for want of the simplest information about exposure to
radiation; [color=Cyan]the wide-scale falsification of medical histories by the Soviet army and the disappearance of people's records so the
state would not have to compensate them; the wholesale looting of evacuated houses and abandoned churches;
[color=Chartreuse]the haste and carelessness with which the concrete "sarcophagus" was erected over the stricken reactor; and, above all,
the horror of seeing land almost twice the size of Britain contaminated, with thousands of villages made uninhabitable.
Will this horrible scenario be repeated in Japan? From the information obtained to date, it appears eerily similar and suggests the possibility of
more of the "same old same old."
[color=Cyan]"Everyone who helped on the clean up is now ill," says Tatiana, a senior doctor at the Dispensary for Radiological
Protection at Rivne.
[color=Chartreuse]"The situation is worsening.
"In 1985, we had four lymph cancers a year.Now we have seven times that many.We have
between five and eight people a year with rare bone cancers, when we never had any.
We expect more cancers, and ill health. One in three pregnancies here are malformed.
We are overwhelmed."
Moving up the scale, a 2006 report for Green MEPs suggested up to 60,000 possible deaths; Greenpeace took the evidence of 52
scientists and estimated the deaths and illnesses to be 93,000 terminal cancers already and perhaps 140,000 more
in time. Using other data, [color=Chartreuse]the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences declared in 2006 that 212,000
[color=Chartreuse]people had died as a direct consequence of Chernobyl.
At the end of 2006, Yablokov and two colleagues, factoring in the worldwide drop in births and increase in cancers seen after the accident,
estimated in a study published in the annals of the New York Academy of Sciences that 985,000 people had so far died and the
environment had been devastated, possibly forever.
Their findings were met with almost complete silence by the World Health Organization (long-time bedfellows with nuclear power advocates) and the
"The New York Academy of Sciences in 2010 released the most significant and vital English language report on the deaths and environmental
devastation caused by Chernobyl. After pouring through thousands of reports and studies conducted in Eastern Europe and Russia, the Academy concluded
that nearly one million people have died as a result of radiation exposure.
Dr. Janette D. Sherman, who edited the volume, explained the discrepancy between the UN's assessment and the Academy's regarding Chernobyl, "(The
UN) released a report ... and they only included about 350 articles available in the English language, but (the New York Academy of Sciences) looked
at well over 5,000 articles ... by people who were there and saw what was going on.

Let's take a 'time out' and check out this sharing from brother clif high:
We, the regular humans seeking our paths in life, can do so, that is 'cheat against war' by creating novel forms of potential.
We can start ahead of the chain in that sense by circulating new ways of thinking that in turn will create new potential that in turn creates new
probability ahead of the war to kill almost all humans that the entrenched powers are so desperately trying to drive into our immediate future.
In ways we could not ourselves envision, though we can certainly see the 'potential' in so doing, each time we create a new potential, multiple new
probabilities are also created.
These then lead to yet new outcomes....some of which will not involve the last humans alive stumbling out their final minutes in confusion on the
corpses of their families.

Dear Reader, (and we know who you are, thank you for being here) do you remember this latest
"worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl" from only a dozen years ago?
[color=Chartreuse]The world's worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl rocked Japan yesterday after an explosion took place at a nuclear
fuel plant, threatening 300,000 people living within a six-mile radius of the disaster.
When the plant was evacuated radiation levels were reported 2km from the site to be 15,000 times the normal level.
The authorities were painfully slow to react. The scale of the problem did not become apparent until workers returned to the plant six hours after
running away when the alarms sounded.
They found such high radiation levels that they concluded the chain reaction was continuing and they had no way of stopping
Why does this sound so familiar?
Do not tell us that this happened before and no lesson was learned... no one is that stupid.
The disaster began as workers at the JCO Tokai nuclear fuel plant were attempting to dissolve 16kg of enriched uranium in nitric acid -
almost enough to make a nuclear bomb.
It is considered dangerous to process more than 2.4kg at one time.
This set off an uncontrolled chain reaction, resulting in a [color=Cyan]"blue flash" at the processing plant in Tokai village. A hole was
punched through the roof of the building, radiation began spewing into the atmosphere, and radiation levels went up to 4,000 times normal
levels within a minute.
[color=Chartreuse]There was no containment around the plant, because it was not thought that an accident like this could happen.
Just a quick checkup here:
[color=Cyan]The use of these advanced technologies now directly affects mankind's ability to control its own fate and the lethal consequences on
our earthly and human ecosystems are perhaps irreversible.
[color=Cyan]The use of these advanced technologies now directly affects mankind's ability to control its own fate and the lethal consequences on
our earthly and human ecosystems are perhaps irreversible.
Or, as another astute individual observed: [color=Chartreuse]"As man attempts to become God-like, we release potential forces that can, and
probably will, destroy us."
We are slowly but surely losing our extraordinary capacity to make life desirable. As the nuclear fallout continues to spread worldwide, our natural
resilience - our immune system - will artificially decrease, independently of our own will. These advanced technologies continue to affect not only
our physical bodies, but our minds as well.
The nation watched with horror as entire towns were swept away and farmsteads were steadily engulfed in burning debris.
One year ago.
Fukushima is not Chernobyl, but far worse and clearly much more dangerous, as the spent fuel pools alone held over 600,000 fuel rods. And the danger
is not just to the unfortunates living in the area - many of whom will never be able to return to their ancestral homes - but to the entire planet,
every organism on our Fragile Planet Earth.
Exposing the "unspeakable" realities of the Japanese catastrophe in this 60 Minutes program, leading nuclear scientist
Dr. Michio Kaku said [color=Cyan]radiation from Fukushima will impact of all of humanity.

If this happened at Indian Point, NY, there would be panic in the entire Northeastern United States.
We are ultimately hopeful for a viable solution sooner than later, but to hear "experts" claiming that nuclear radiation is not that serious,
or that the environmental calamity at Fukushima Dai-ichi proves the continued need for nuclear power to prevent electricity shortages, is nothing
short of disgraceful and more so, ultimately shamefully deceitful.
No one has the right to allow any discussion of the grave dangers of radiation from Fukushima, which is of unprecedented urgency and gravity, to be
influenced - let alone dominated - by those insane enough to poison the discussion with debating points, half truths and distortions.
The truth shall save the world, let it be free.
And yet, government and industry schemers attack these truths as unfounded scare-mongering. With cold indifference, they deny that Chernobyl was a
mass casualty event. They turn a blind eye to a huge body of research and deviously proclaim that no evidence exists that more than a handful of
people suffered harm from the Ukrainian disaster.
They publish propaganda, draped in the guise of science, that dismisses the hazard of low levels of internal contamination. Believing their subterfuge
to have been successful and intoxicated by their hubris, they have already positioned themselves to stage-manage the public’s perception of
The truth is horribly apparent. Fukushima’s nuclear disaster/fiasco is a worldwide ecological nightmare.
Ghostly releases of radioactivity continue to haunt the Japanese countryside, even as the JAPGOV is encouraging displaced citizens to return to areas
from whence they once fled for their lives. Those lives, once safe, are now beset by an ineffable scourge promising vile illness and untimely
Large sectors of the population have been irradiated beyond what the TEPCO numbers indicate and are accumulating significant levels of internal
contamination, setting the stage for a public health tragedy of Biblical proportions.
Nothing short of nuclear blackmail is what TEPCO and the JAPGOV have foisted upon the still-suffering Japanese populace, while continuing the
falsehood that "all is well; a state of cold shutdown has been achieved."
One cannot help but suspect that the interests of the shareholders of TEPCO are still being preferred to those of the millions of potential victims of
radioactive poisoning, in Japan.
What about the rest of the citizens of Planet Earth who have been affected in any way by this worldwide radioactive fallout?
[color=Cyan]Do not we, the people, have the right to a radiation-free future?
As always four winds, great posts.
Poking through another old film, [Almost a year old] it seems more things jumped out at me. This is from an April 11th flyover. Have a look at the

after the 7.4 on April 7th?
A shot of the gas treatment building that again, seems to be very steamy for April 11th. More outward looking damage.

Cesium up to 100 times levels before disaster found in plankton far off nuke plant
Radioactive cesium up to 100 times pre-nuclear disaster levels has been detected in plankton inhabiting the sea far from the crippled nuclear
plant following the March 2011 disaster, according to a survey conducted by Japanese and U.S. researchers.
The high concentration of cesium, which is believed to derive from the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant, suggests that radioactive substances that
have leaked from the complex are spreading extensively in the sea.
"Even though radiation levels detected from the plankton samples were still low, there is a possibility that large amounts of cesium will accumulate
in fish through the food chain in a phenomenon called biological concentration. We need to continue our survey," he said. "Each species of marine
creatures that feed on animal plankton need to be monitored over the long term."
The results of the survey were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States on April 3.
Japan Bans Bananas: From the Annals of Government Stupidity
It would seen that in the wake of the Fukushima disaster (you know, that nuclear disaster that hasn’t killed anyone at all and which will have
such a small effect that we’ll never know whether it ever will) that the Japanese government has just decided to ban bananas.
Under the new rules, the limit for general foodstuffs such as fruit, vegetables, rice, seafood and meat is 100 becquerels of radiation per kilogram,
down from 500 prior to April 1. The limit for milk, baby food and infant formula is 50 becquerels per kilogram. For drinking water and tea leaves, it
is 10 becquerels per kilogram. The ministry said local municipalities will be responsible for carrying out testing and that any item measuring
above the set standard will not be permitted to be sold.
The problem is that bananas are naturally radioactive. One banana has perhaps 15 Bq, there are usually more than 6 or 7 bananas to a kilo of them and
thus a kilo of bananas has more than 100 Bq. And as for Brazil nuts, these are actually so radioactive that if you take them into a nuclear
installation you cannot take them out again. They’re too radioactive, go over the limits for what a nuclear installation is allowed to release into
the environment. It is possible that this nuts story is apocryphal of course but I wouldn’t bet against it being true. There is one possible get

[color=00FA9A]”As man attempts to become God-like, we release potential forces that can, and probably will, destroy us.”
Today, 11 March 2012, marks the first anniversary of a day that will go down in infamy: the date of [color=Cyan]the
world’s greatest environmental catastrophe - the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant multiple melt-through disaster in Japan.
On that fateful day, the Great East Japan Earthquake of magnitude 9.0
triggering a tsunami that reached heights of up to 40-metres, leaving nearly 16,000 people dead and over 3,000 missing, completely demolishing
270,000 homes and over 600,000 other buildings, and rendering over 350,000 people homeless. Entire towns were decimated and nearly one million
buildings were damaged and virtually all infrastructure destroyed up to six miles inland.
The accident was rated 7 - the highest rating - on the INES scale. Four reactors (out of six at FDNPP #1) were written off by Tokyo Electric
Power Company (TEPCO) - at a reported 2,719 MW net loss of electrical capacity.
Japan's last running reactor, Hokkaido Electric's Tomari number 3, is set to go off-line on May 5 for maintenance. "We are
currently closely studying the summer power supply situation. We will do our utmost to operate in a stable way and maintain our
facilities," Toshio Nishizawa, TEPCO president, said in a statement.
The scale of the 3/11 disaster was extraordinarily magnified by utterly inadequate (read: complete lack of) government emergency preparation and, in
the case of the TEPCO-owner nuclear power plant, by the [color=Chartreuse]subordination of safety issues to private profit, a
long-standing problem ignored by the very agencies assigned to protect the public.
Prime Minister Naoto Kan
The Japanese government, then led by Prime Minister Naoto Kan, feared “a demonic chain reaction” of nuclear meltdowns.
SPEEDI Data on the projected spread of radioactive materials that ultimately might
have saved many lives and aided in credible evacuation plans was
deleted from the server by officials at Fukushima Prefecture
“to maintain server capacity.”
Kan secretly considered plans to evacuate the 30 million people in Greater Tokyo—220 kilometres from Fukushima—but deliberately kept the public in
Japan’s government, its Nuclear Safety Commission, and the Tokyo Electric Power Company have already demonstrated that [color=Chartreuse]they
will do everything in their power to keep citizens ignorant of what is taking place.
The emerging health crisis is scheduled to be erased.
Following a time-tested blueprint worked out by prior radiation releases around the world, data relevant to assessing the medical impact of the accident will not be gathered.
[color=Cyan]Radiation doses to the population will be woefully underestimated.
The heightened incidence of childhood leukemia will be attributed to some as yet unidentified virus unleashed by population mixing
following the evacuations caused by the tsunami.
This theory is currently in vogue to deny that the heightened incidence of leukemia among children under five years of age living nearby to nuclear
reactors is radiation induced.
[color=Chartreuse]The birth defects will be summarily dismissed as impossible because the risk models upheld by the International Commission
on Radiological Protection don’t predict them. [color=Cyan]The possibility that the models are fraudulently constructed escapes
consideration. (See A Betrayal of Mankind by the Radiation Protection Agencies.
Meanwhile, nearly 330,000 people continue to remain stranded in temporary housing, most having spent months previously living in rudimentary
evacuation centres such as school halls.
Evacuees from Minamisoma arrive at Kusatsu.
Their homes are within 19 miles (30 km)
of the Fukushima nuclear plant.
Many of these residents were evacuated
first to emergency shelters,
such as school gymnasiums,
and then moved to temporary, prefabricated housing, where they must pay for utilities and food
- a hardship for many as
they have lost their jobs
and are still paying mortgages
on their empty homes.
An elderly woman rests on the floor of a classroom at Otsu
Elementary School, which is being used as an evacuation shelter.
The earthquake triggered powerful tsunami waves that reached heights of up to 40.5 metres (133 ft) in Miyako in Tōhoku's Iwate Prefecture, and
which, in the Sendai area, travelled up to 10 km (6 mi) inland. The earthquake moved Honshu 2.4 m (8 ft) east and shifted the Earth on its axis by
estimates of between 10 cm (4 in) and 25 cm (10 in).
The tsunami caused a number of nuclear accidents, primarily the ongoing level 7 meltdowns at three reactors in the Fukushima 1
Nuclear Power Plant complex, and the associated evacuation zones affecting hundreds of thousands of residents.
Reconstruction of towns and villages has only just begun. Much of the 22.5-million tons of debris has not been cleared. Human remains are still being
discovered, adding to the distress of families that have had to push the authorities to keep searching for the bodies.
Mizue Kanno visits her home in Namie, Fukushima Prefecture on Oct. 1 to clean up. She must wear a double-layered mask and carry a dosimeter.
Going along with the delusional mantra that ’all must share the burden of the radioactive debris’, the JAPGOV has
begun loading, transporting, unloading and then dispersion of radioactive debris in Tokyo Bay.
In the Fukushima prefecture, more than 80,000 residents forced to leave the exclusion zone around the crippled Daiichi plant have been told that it
could be decades before they can return. [color=Chartreuse]After six months of cover-up, the authorities finally admitted that Fukushima was the
world’s worst nuclear crisis since the meltdown of the Chernobyl reactor in the Ukraine in 1986.
Which, Dear Reader, brings us full circle to where we started, Chernobyl.
Have we learned anything from this exercise so far?
"Decades" equates to a “life sentence” for those evacuees who do not have decades to live. The plight of the “radiation refugees” has been
magnified by the lack of sufficient funds for the reconstruction and little, if any, aid in relocating to other living quarters.
Not waiting for government help, locals make their own Geiger counters and decontaminate soil, finding their worst fears realized that the JAPGOV had
withheld the real dangers of the widespread radiation from them.
When the ‘new’ world’s worst nuclear accident vaporized untold amounts of radioactive particles - including Plutonium, the most life-threatening
stuff on the planet - it spewed numerous deadly isotopes high into the air, catching the Jet Stream and contaminating land and sea, not only in Japan,
but North America and then all around the world.
Just six days after the disastrous meltdowns struck four reactors at Fukushima on March 11, scientists detected the plume of toxic fallout had
arrived over American shores. Subsequent measurements by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found levels of radiation in air, water, and
milk hundreds of times above normal across the U.S.
The highest detected levels of Iodine-131 in precipitation in the U.S. were as follows (normal is about 2 picocuries I-131 per liter of water): Boise,
ID (390); Kansas City (200); Salt Lake City (190); Jacksonville, FL (150); Olympia, WA (125); and Boston, MA (92).
Epidemiologist Joseph Mangano, MPH MBA, said: “This study of Fukushima health hazards is the first to be published in a scientific journal.
Unfortunately, the radiation dispersion continues worldwide, 24/7/365,
with no end in sight.
Largely absent from most mainstream media reports on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster is the fact that a highly
dangerous “mixed-oxide” (MOX) fuel in present in six percent of the fuel rods at the plant’s Unit 3 reactor.
Why is MOX a big deal?
According to the Nuclear Information Resource Center (NIRS), this plutonium-uranium fuel mixture is far more dangerous than typical enriched uranium
— a single milligram (mg) of MOX is as deadly as 2,000,000 mg of normal enriched uranium.
A simple calculation reveals that [color=Cyan]one mg of MOX is basically two million times more powerful than one mg of uranium. This is
clearly not a good thing when the plutonium-containing fuel rods in Fukushima may be damaged from the recent explosions and leaking into the
Amazingly, most mainstream reports that mention MOX discount it as a non-threat. But the truth of the matter is that the threat posed by MOX is very
serious. The NIRS report explains that inhalation of MOX radioactive material is
significantly more dangerous than inhalation of normal uranium radioactive particles.
[color=Cyan]]“The entire northern hemisphere of the world is affected by radioactive fallout from Japan,” says Dr. Robert J. Gilbert,
a former U.S. Marine Corps Instructor in Nuclear-Biological-Chemical Warfare Survival.
Here is his breakdown of the dangers:
• Most Serious Areas: Japan, Pacific Ocean, and Pacific Rim States
• Most Contaminated Food Areas of North America: Entire Pacific Coast, Northern U.S. States close to Canada, Canadian areas close to the U.S.,
Eastern States, Central States of the U.S., and Far Northern areas of Canada.
• Non-Food Products: Radioactive contamination is being found on non-food products being imported from Japan.
• Most Affected Food Products: All Ocean-Derived Products from the Pacific Ocean, All Dairy Products, Broad-Leaf Plants with a large surface area
such as Salad Greens, Spinach, Cabbage etc.
• Water: From Rainwater or Open Lake type catchments
Why is this milk contamination significant?
Milk, of course, typically represents the overall condition of the food chain because cows consume grass and are exposed to the same elements as food
crops and water supplies.
[color=Chartreuse]In other words, when cows' milk starts testing positive for high levels of radioactive elements, this is indicative of radioactive
contamination of the entire food supply.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) continues to release new data showing that various milk and water supply samples from across the US
are testing increasingly high for radioactive elements such as Iodine-131, Cesium-134, and Cesium-137, [color=Cyan]all of which are being emitted from
the ongoing Fukushima Daiichia nuclear fallout.
As of April 10, 2011, 23 US water supplies have tested positive for radioactive Iodine-131
(opendata.socrata.com...), and worst of all, milk samples from at least three US locations have
tested positive for Iodine-131 at levels exceeding EPA maximum containment levels (MCL)
(opendata.socrata.com...), and in once case more than 2000 percent higher than MCL, cumulatively.
In Phoenix, Ariz., a milk sample taken on March 28, 2011, tested at 3.2 pCi/l.
In Little Rock, Ark., a milk sample taken on March 30, 2011, tested at 8.9 pCi/l, which is almost three times the EPA limit.
And in Hilo, Hawaii, a milk sample collected on April 4, 2011, tested at 18 pCi/l, a level six times the EPA maximum safety threshold.
The same Hawaii sample also tested at 19 pCi/l for Cesium-137, which has a half life of 30 years
(www.naturalnews.com...), and a shocking 24 pCi/l for Cesium-134, which has a half life of just over two years
Together, this amounts to a level 2033 percent higher than federal limits.
Clarabelle Cloven Hoof – Spokeperson for Bovine Union #238
The attitude of those happy cows in California will turn very sour if they are forced to eat radiated grass. Bovine News Today is reporting
that the cows will strike if fallout from the Japanese nuclear meltdown rains on their beloved California grasslands.
Clarabelle Cloven Hoof, spokesperson for the local union, had this to say,
“It’ll be a cold day in pasture before we eat radiated grass.”
The world may little note nor long remember what we say here, but history will bear

[color=Cyan]Fukushima is now far and away the worst nuclear disaster in all of human history.
Chernobyl was a Sunday picnic compared to Fukushima and the amount of cesium-137 released at Fukushima this year so far is
equivalent to 168 Hiroshima bombs.
To get an idea of just how nightmarish Fukushima has turned out to be, just consider the words of nuclear expert
Steven C. Jones
"Fukushima is the greatest nuclear and environmental disaster
in human history."
By way of comparison, the Chernobyl nuclear disaster that occured in 1986 in the Ukraine, Russia - heretofore the worst
nuclear disaster on record - burned for 10 days and cumulatively killed an estimated 1 million people worldwide.
The Fukushima, Japan nuclear disaster has 5 nuclear reactors burning, 2 in partial meltdown and 3 in full meltdown- and they’ve ALL been
uncontrollably burning since March 11. Its been over 3 months and this nuclear disaster remains completely out of control. In fact,
some industry estimates cite the possibility that these meltdowns will be contained (optimistically) in 1-3 years, at the very earliest.

[color=Chartreuse]Radiation kills, and thanks to the recent Fukushima disaster in Japan, the REAL story is that a literal nuclear holocaust is
unfolding right before us in America and throughout the world.
[color=Salmon]The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the federal environmental safety agency arm of the US government [color=Salmon]has
shut down nearly all of its radiation detection monitors in the USA for fear that the American people will learn the TRUTH that a lethal dose of
radioactive fallout has now descended upon the nation...
The Japanese are finally noticing that they are surrounded by the invisible walls.
Since the bubble ended in 1992, Japan has been in a long recession, called Japan’s lost 20 years.
Leaders changed like revolving lanterns.
Japanese citizens became aware that their voice is not reflected in the political situation but they tried to ignore the fact and indulged themselves
in the fading prosperity.
Tens of thousands of protesters pack a park during the anti-nuclear demonstration in Tokyo.
However, they cannot ignore it anymore.
Since 3/11, their government has been trying to kill the people
instead of saving them.
They have concealed SPEEDI data which showed where people should be evacuated from and instead are having people remain in
The government has engaged in a campaign to cover up the information about the nuclear radioactive fallout having set the food
regulations to save the producers instead of the consumers.
[color=Chartreuse]In a futile attempt to protect their own lives and the lives of their children the Japanese have put forth countless petitions,
demonstrations, and discussions but none of them have been effective.
Over one hundred thousand people are marching against the government in central Tokyo.
The Japanese have not felt the necessity of revolt this much since the last Japanese revolution in the mid-19th century.
Japanese citizens are finally starting to become aware that they have been quiet for too long. They are trying to recall how to stand up against the
On 3/11/2012, 14,000 people demonstrated in Tokyo and made a human chain to surround the Japanese parliament.
A man in the chain asked the police if the anti-nuke movement is getting slow.
The Police whispered “It’s not getting slow”.
They think it was a remarkable achievement to have even made it into 2012 without any violent clashes.
The police don’t think it is going to stay this way for too much longer.
Instead, they think it’s rather to become much more “active” because the people are more and more aware that the mass media is busy at
Ignored: Cries To Change Nuclear Policy Fall On Deaf Ears
NHK is censored from projecting a pro-nuke or anti-nuke viewpoint.
Currently Japan’s social networking sites leads the social consensus.
The world has changed.
However, the fact is that the consensus of the people cannot affect the political decisions of the government.
Massive Anti-Nuclear Protests Ignored For Over A Year
On 3/11/2012, Japanese Prime Minister Noda gave a speech urging all of Japan to help with the disposal of radioactive debris
by accepting it for disposal.
It is assumed now that the radioactive debris will be spread all over Japan and even to Okinawa by April.
[color=Salmon]There are even an unconfirmed reports that they radioactive debris has already been taken their and buried in landfills.

This video exemplifies the frustrations of the Japanese people who are beginning to feel that they are being cornered into revolt over the Fukushima
radiation and are taking their pleas to the street.
In Okinawa, there are approximately 10,000 people evacuated from the main islands of Japan.
For them, Okinawa is the last radiation haven.
At the end of World War II, Okinawa was the last battlefield between Japan and the US.
Now, in 21st century, Okinawa is becoming the last battle field between radiation pilgrims and Japanese government.

It is a concrete fact that people can no longer any recourse to change the situation legally...
Police Clash With Thousands in Tokyo Protesting Nuclear Lies, Incompetence and Censorship
Japanese have been educated to think expressing your own opinion is rude.
Now they are trying to learn how to speak out drawing from the experience of citizens overseas in locations such as Tibet, Tunisia, Egypt and
The citizens of Japan are becoming more emotional and are ignoring that their protests have failed to make a difference.
Everyday new ideas to force change appear on Japan’s social networking sites such as hunger strike, human chain, direct appeal, use
of force and even assassination.
So much for change through peaceable means. Now what?
Japan is experiencing a massive awakening of the public about the dangers of the Fukushima radiation.
The authorities have made a police box in front of the house of Mr. Katsumata, the chairman of TEPCO.
[color=Salmon]It is a clear sign that they are feeling the threat of people.
Because people can’t do anything for Fukushima anymore, they are focusing their attention on alternative issues.
1. Attempt to stop all the nuclear plants in Japan.
2. Measuring radiation all around in their circumstances and food.
3. Acting against the policy to spread the radioactive debris.
4. Revealing the manipulated facts about the decontamination business. etc..
[color=Cyan]Soon the people will be united and lose their focus on these distractions and turn to violence.
The more aware people become the harder the government becomes.
Japanese society has reached its boiling point.
Massive anti-nuclear protests in Japan are not making any difference.
[color=Aqua]”Both the great Truths and the great Falsehoods of the twentieth century lie hidden in the arcane, widely inaccessible, and
seemingly mundane domain of the radiation sciences.”
The Japanese have been victimized by nuclear horror more than any other people on Earth. Today they are immersed in an imperceptible tragedy that will
slowly but inevitably bring disease and heartbreak to millions.
In response to this crime, a rare and courageous opportunity exists.
By undertaking a national campaign to honestly document the disaster that is engulfing them, they can lead all of humanity to break through the
quagmire of deception and deceit that has allowed nuclear weapons and reactors to flourish.
Truth finally has an opportunity to triumph over falsehood. In some small but significant way, this would be fitting repayment for the malevolence of
Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima. Paul Zimmerman
And now for something completely different.
One must not loose sight of the fact that America’s nuclear reactors are aging, some already far beyond life-expectancy, and the NRC blindly ignores
obvious problems at every turn and extends licenses to twice the reactor's projected lifetimes.
The San Onofre nuclear power plant in California is currently shutdown due to serious problems - the extent of which are being covered up.
[color=Chartreuse]The lives of over 8 million people in California are in real and immediate danger after radiation leaked from the tubes at the
The report also says Southern California Edison has misled regulators about changes made to the aging nuclear power plant and by failing to cite the
differences about old and new steam reactors that could seriously compromise the safety of the reactors.
In an attempt to raise awareness about the issues, activists are spreading the word online and a coalition of concerned organizations are running a
public service ad to alert the public to the seriousness of the issue.
The plan is to get people to tell their friends and family members and get them involved in raising awareness about the issue so they
can combat the power and influence the nuclear industry has over our regulators.
This needs to reach critical mass so the public can demand in a voice of solidarity that the issues is properly addressed [color=Cyan]before the
people in the Los Angeles and San Diego area find themselves living in the same level of radioactive nuclear fallout that the 20 million people in
the Tokyo metropolitan area are living in now.
This video is a new television ad targeting Southern California Edison calls on residents to let the utility know that their families come first --
and that it must not restart the troubled San Onofre nuclear reactors, which are currently closed due to serious safety problems.
[color=FFF000]The ad parallels the threat from San Onofre’s troubled reactors with the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan — and notes that eight
million Americans live within 50 miles of San Onofre, the distance the U.S. government advised should be evacuated in the Japan disaster.
The ad urges residents to let the utility know that their families come first
and that it must keep the reactors closed.
The paper also documented that Edison misled the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission about changes made to the reactors,
failing to disclose differences between old and new steam generators that could seriously compromise the safety of the
“The Nuclear Regulatory Commission knows these reactors need to stay offline, and Southern California families know it too,” said Damon Moglen,
climate and energy project director at Friends of the Earth.
“But Southern California Edison is pushing ahead. That’s unacceptable, especially after it was its deception that led to this dangerous
People deserve better than to have their power company racing to restart dangerous nuclear reactors after one sprang a radioactive leak and when both

The "much worse" is something that is not acceptable.
On October 31, 2011, Scientist Marco Kaltofen of Worchester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) presented his analysis of radioactive isotopic releases from
the Fukushima accidents at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA).
Mr. Kaltofen’s analysis confirms the detection of hot particles in the US and the extensive airborne and ground contamination
in northern Japan due to the four nuclear power plant accidents at TEPCO’s Fukushima reactors.

One last look at what the nuclear beast Fukushima hath spawned:
As evidence continues to emerge there is widespread nuclear radiation contamination in the Japanese food supply government
officials exhibit their ignorance toward the problem by pretending there is no crisis.
Japanese schools are forcing students to eat radioactive food, among other unspeakable actions, which can be called nothing less
than a crime against humanity.
[color=Chartreuse]Japanese officials know there is widespread contamination in everything from soil and sewage to tea and beef and rice and
mushrooms. These are facts which test after test show can not be ignored.
[color=Salmon]Even when children plea for help directly to the government their cries are ignored, [color=Cyan]which can be interpreted as
nothing less than the government telling the population to go Fukushima themselves because the agenda of the globalist
corpocracy is more important than something as insignificant as the value of human life.
We’ll wrap this up for now and invite your participation.
[color=Cyan]There is a gap between them and us.
Between the phoney scientists and the public who don’t believe what they say.
Between those who are employed and paid to protect us from radioactive pollution and those who die from its consequences.
Between those who talk down what is arguably the greatest public health scandal in human history, and the facts that they ignore.

Mainichi Expert Sr. Writer: Gov’t sources say No. 4 pool a grave concern — Storage pool barely intact — We have no time to humor
senseless thinking of those who downplay the risks
One of the biggest issues that we face is the possibility that the spent nuclear fuel pool of the No. 4 reactor at the stricken Fukushima No. 1
Nuclear Power Plant will collapse. This is something that experts from both within and outside Japan have pointed out since the massive quake struck.
[...] not only independent experts, but also sources within the government say that it’s a grave concern.
