I have had to change the main title of the book as I have been told there are numerous articles and publications named 'lies, damned lies and press
releases'. Should have figured that would be so. That is now the title of just Part One, and this is the last chapter of Part One.
The title of the book is now the same as a previous chapter entitled "Bombs Under Dai-ichi Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Share The Pain.
page between chapters
Please be assured that the radiation levels monitored to date have no impact on health." Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Public Health.
"The reactors are being cooled.....If there is another explosion....there would be no significant impact on human health." Chief Cabinet Secretary
"We see a very low likelihood, really a very low probability that there’s any possibility of harmful radiation levels in the United States." NRC's
''For those outside the exclusion zone set up by the Japanese authorities there is no real human health issue that people should be concerned about,''
from a British Foreign Ministry statement.
But nobody, and I repeat nobody could out do Ann Coulter and her cute little nazi-head remark, "Anyone exposed to excess radiation from the nuclear
power plants is now probably much less likely to get cancer". Ann Coulter.
Now compare the pics of Masao Yoshida below with the above pic of Ann's younger brother Alfie and pictures of Ann. A striking resemblance becomes
instantly obvious. A coincidence......I think not. I think we have finally found Ann's and Alfie's father after all these years, oh glorious
And not only is the resemblance between the three uncanny, Yoshida's remark of only causing "anxiety and inconvenience" is right up Ann and Alfie's
ally. I mean really, "anxiety and inconvenience". You know, like causing people to worry needlessly and be late for their kid's little league baseball
game and stuff like that. Personally I think we should notify Ann and Alfie right away and let them know that their dad has at long last been located.
Too bad Masao didn't stay at Fukushima longer or his cancer would have gone away. Just like Ann predicted it would.
(The above shot of Alfie is from a Mad Magazine cover, reprinted without permission. But then again I didn't hit them up for a donation for giving
that ugly little # free advertising space in my book. So I figure we're even. If they want me to remove it I'd be more than happy to. But since they
are desperate for free advertising I kinda doubt they would.)
Hell Hath No Fury Like A Neutron Scorned
There was so much insanity flying around by the 16th. Crazies to the left of us, wackos to the right and there I was stuck in the middle with you.
I can understand how alot of knowledgeable people bailed on trying to understand Fukushima in those days. Too much crazy happening. Way, way, way too
And when Ann Coulter came out and stated that Fukushima was a success story showing how resilient nuclear power was, I almost started crying between
bursts of laughter. Then when she said that the people of Japan should thank Tepco cause they were now less likely to end up with cancer, I saw red.
How dare she or anyone else turn the pain and suffering of the people of Northern Japan into a pro-nuke commercial. Strap her naked to the R3 reactor
for a week and then let's see how good radiation is for her. On second thought, put clothes on her. No one should have to suffer seeing her nude.
But really, there is no difference from the position that Ann took, and that Yuki or Masao or any of the rest of the bureaucratic talking heads took.
The basic theme was always the same, 'shut up and eat your radioactive dinner or no TV tonight'.
Fukushima represents a watershed moment for the human race. It's either the breaking point for nuclear power and nuclear weapons, or the breaking
point for life. The road forks hard straight ahead.
The Power Of Imagination Makes Us Infinite
The above is a quote from John Muir. In those seven words lies the answer to every problem we face. We have an intelligence that can dream impossible
dreams, and a will that can make them come true. That is what sets us apart from the rest of the biological world.
But we have lost our ability to imagine a better world. Or more to the point, we have allowed it to be stolen from us by an insidious beast called the
media, who spoon feed us a constant diet of what the corporate world wants us to think are the true limitations of the human spirit. And they have
transformed us into a race of lemmings following close behind the piper of normalcy.
This is an example of how the media controls our perceptions of reality. The early days of hippie revolution were a wonder that the earth has seldom
seen. And it was fueled by a simple concept. Each human is an individual unto themselves, different from anyone who has come before. We had sayings
like "be yourself, nobody else can" and silly things like that. Silly things that attempted to wake the human race up, and free it from the chains of
normalcy. And it almost worked.
But the corporate media manipulation through TV and newspapers was too strong. It turned the concept of 'be yourself' into 'be a drug addled bum', the
corporate image of what a non consuming free thinker must be.
And to this day this is the main image the world has of hippies from the 60's. Drug addled bums. When really it was started by very advanced
spiritually minded people trying to create a better, freer, more humanistic world. A world in which all you needed was Love. Like the masters have
tried to do since the dawn of time.
On the 16th of March Fukushima suffered a similar fate, but in reverse. Here the negatives have disappeared in a puff of smoke, and unbelievable
positives have taken their place. Ann's utterly stupid remark was actually mirrored by main stream media personnel in subtle but equally destructive
ways throughout the day.
Because Japan had not been immediately erased from the map, this was displayed somehow as a positive, showing that a nuclear plant meltdown wasn't a
big deal. See....nobody has died. What's the problem.
The following is from media reports for the 16th.
"Fears of a large-scale nuclear disaster have been mounting in Japan since three powerful blasts hit the Fukushima plant, which was seriously damaged
by Friday's earthquake and tsunami, on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday".
"Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said on Wednesday Fukushima's blast-hit units 1, 2 and 3 were being "successfully cooled" and radiation
levels around the plant did not pose a health threat".
It doesn't matter the publication, this was a universal theme. People were unnecessarily afraid. The fear of a nuclear disaster is all that occurred,
not an actual nuclear disaster. Thank god we narrowly avoided one and can now stop being afraid. Everything is under control and the reactors are
Don't know how we missed that simple fact.
In reality it's hard to believe that Tepco actually tried to pull that off. The destruction of three nuclear reactor buildings, three nuclear reactors
in possible meltdown, four SFPs with one possibly ready to boil out (or so they thought when the above was written), and one of the explosions looking
mysteriously nuclear in nature.....and this isn't a large-scale nuclear disaster?
If not, please tell me what is so I can be dead by then.
Just for the record.....we had a MEGA-FUGGIN-SCALE nuclear disaster, not just a large-scale one. And you gotta love Yuki's "successfully cooled" one
liner. I have no idea what he was talking about with that one. They couldn't even approach the reactor buildings after the morning of the 15th.
That is such an amazing example of mind perversion that it leaves me speechless. Push fear and insanity and horror down peoples throats through movies
and TV and eventually nothing happening is as bad as you've seen before. A disease I call 'numb soul' sets in, kinda like 'you can die in front of me
but you better make it look splashy or I ain't gonna throw you a quarter' sort of thing. Very perverse. And close to normal.
Dante's Peak Revisited
On the 16th and 17th there were numerous bursts from Lake Moltenmass, coinciding with fires in both R3 and R4. Some were reported, some were rumored.
Most were called steam expulsions but this is partly a lie, as the screen captures below show.
Tepco, the SDF and the Japanese government were working feverishly at this point to downplay anything that appeared a serious problem. 'Reactors were
being cooled and radiation levels were not a health hazard around the plant' became the nightly news headline in the US on the 17th, and not 'fire
engines and the helicopter crews were unable to approach R4 due to high radiation levels'.
Instead, that last piece of information got demoted to the second to last paragraph and was worded as 'earlier yesterday fire engines were unable to
approach reactor buildings due to high radiation levels'. Earlier yesterday. In another life time. Somewhere far far away. Given as an aside at the
end of the story. With no mention of the problem the helicopter pilots encountered.
And it's not an outright lie either. Earlier on the 16th fire engines couldn't approach the reactors. Very true. Nor could they later on that day, or
anytime during the next. In fact, the helicopter pilots chose not to fly on the 16th, and would've chosen the same on the 17th due to high radiation
levels except that they were ordered to make the drops that day. And when they attempted to do drops on R4 they were turned away due to high radiation
Which is another piece of information that screamed for questioning, possibly more than any other single moment in this catastrophe. On the 17th the
R4 fires were officially listed as oil fires, and the SFP still had water and wasn't boiling. So there should have been no radiation contamination
occurring at R4. Yet it was running hotter than R3 at the time.
Why no journalist asked "WHERE DID THE HIGH RADS COME FROM THEN THAT THE HELICOPTER PILOTS ENCOUNTERED ABOVE R4, AND WHY COULDN'T THE FIREFIGHTERS GET
CLOSER TO R4 IF THE SFP IS INTACT AND OK" is beyond me. It's such a simple question screaming for an answer. Instead the journalists in the press
conference wrote down their notes, finished their article and conferred with each other as to where they should eat dinner that night. Nary an
investigative peep out of any of them.
Initial reports stated that radiation levels outside R4 on the 16th were up to 1000 mSv/h. This was later changed to 100 mSv/h with no explanation
given, and the 1000 mSv was now said to be between R3 and R4.
On the 17th R4 however was still too radioactive to approach. In an article in the World Nuclear News they stated that;
"Two army helicopters made four attempts to drop seawater on unit 3, but this did not appear accurate enough to be effective. Tepco said in a news
conference that radiation readings had dropped from 3.78 millisieverts per hour to 3.75 millisieverts per hour, so the effect at present seemed
marginal at best. One attempt was made to douse unit 4 but pilots drew back after encountering high levels of radiation".
And that was that. Because no one dared ask any pertinent questions that first week of the disaster, it came to an abrupt close. A success story for
nuclear power. Nobody died. And the people of Japan will now live a healthier life. Ann said so.
And The Band Played On
Except the real condition at the plant at the end of the first week of the disaster was anything but a success story. The fires from hell continued.
And the heating of the SFPs continued. And the corium heading towards groundwater continued. And the release of fission products, activation products,
uranium and transuranics from the melted cores, SFPs and underground nuclear explosion continued. Unabated. And the nightmare of insane people telling
us insane stories attempting to nullify us continued.
Now compare the lies of Tepco/SDF and the MSM with the footage below.
The following are from a video that I'm pretty sure was taken sometime shortly before the SDF began their helicopter water drops on the 17th. This is
one more video that has disappeared from the web. I have a downloaded version that I hope to post on the web as it is incredible to actually see. It
came out spliced in with videos of the helicopter drops so I am assuming it was the same time period, though earlier in the day from the looks of
shadows cast at the time.
The screen captures really don't do it justice at all. It's only a few seconds long before cutting to the TV newsroom, and the film is darkened and
barely visible unless looked at close up. But it is similar to a steel mill spitting out molten metal chunks.
The initial frame is a bit confusing as it appears there are multiple fires, with the brightest being towards the south wall. The other fire appears
to be in the northwest corner or the service building below it.
Then a single glowing object shoots out and lands behind the south wall.
Then two more flaming objects are emitted from the faint glow area where the smoke is also coming from, followed by a burst with multiple flaming
From the direction of the smoke and the areas showing heat I assume that these objects are coming out of the vent path created earlier, which had
morphed south behind the west wall at this time. I also suspect that the glow coming from the north wall or service buildings was due to flaming
objects being ejected in that direction out of sight and from a different vent path, but from the same source.
There is an intense heat being emitted at this time that is melting steel. Where did this heat come from. It didn't come from the SFP due to the
location. And it didn't come from melting fuel burning through the reactor as this would have produced much higher radiation levels. And since most of
the corium in R3 (in this scenario) had already eaten through the RPV and embedded itself into the basemat, the heat source from there wouldn't have
been that hot.
That R3 and R4 kept experiencing fire after fire is never reported anywhere. Instead, from the 14th to the 23rd, there were only two oil fires
reported at R4 and black smoke or steam was seen coming from R3 a couple of times. That's all that was given publication.
It should also be noted that Edano claimed on the 18th that SDF forces had successfully sprayed water from 5 SDF fire engines on the 17th and their
target was the SFP for R3. Except that the SDF and Tokyo fire dept couldn't get close enough to successfully hit any part of R3 until the next day,
And when they did get close enough, they dumped load after load on the northwest corner, no where near the SFP.
And again the journalists of the world just took notes as the band played on.
For the rest of the book I will be moving all around the plant, and need to share the following map with you. This is the main part of the plant,
admin to southend, with a pleasant stroll down Murderers Row.
The southend for all extent and purposes incorporates the common spent fuel pool (CSFP) and 4 Stack and everything south from there. I should note
that the naming of buildings in this area was very difficult, as Tepco put out different names for the individual buildings at different times, going
back before the disaster, so these names may or may not be correct at this time.
The switching yard includes the refrigeration building and the gas treatment system building (GTS) as well as R1/R2 and R3/R4 transformer buildings
There are three other buildings of interest to the underground complex scenario. Two of them are west of the switching yard, where there is a long
building that is part maintenance and part something else, and just to its right the Tohoku Nuclear Power Line receiving station. The third is the
littlest building in the long row of admin buildings north of R1, simply called the stripped building in the map, as this was the condition that
journalists found it in in the first news tour back in April 2011.
And that's the playing field for Part Two of this book; Murderer's Row and the Dai-ichi Dragon.
