I feel sorry for the people of Japan. They have so many disasters and now the nuclear radiation. I'm not sure if the people there realize how dangerous condition they are in right now. It is a country with tiny lands, it seems that they do not have many other options in terms of where to go or do more about it.

Another problem is, this nuclear disaster is not only affecting Japan, it is going around the world as we know that this planet is a closed system after all. The Earth is like a spacecraft in the universe...all of us are connected in the end either by the atmosphere or by the water.

Interestingly, not a single poster here has stepped forward with any proof that the radiation from Fukushima is affecting their life in any way. Not a single shred of evidence.

An Appeal from a Fukushima Woman:
A Young Girl Died of Leukemia.
Please Investigate What Is Happening in Fukushima

"Good evening, everyone.

I used to live 1.2 km from Fukushima Dai-ichi NPP.
I evacuated with only the clothes on my back.
Currently I am staying in Minato Ward.

On the 6th day of last month, I went to Namie-machi, which was the next town over.
Can you people imagine how it really was?
Prime Minister Abe also went there to take a look the other day.

In my friend’s house, there were thirteen dead rats, 30-cm long.
Their feces were almost 1 cm in diameter. These huge feces were everywhere.
They had chewed on everything including the pillar.

Why didn’t Prime Minister Abe see such a place?
He should see the inside of houses, if he is going to take a look.

Before cancelling the evacuation order, please rebuild water and power system, roads, supermarekt, dentists and hospitals.

Even if we can return, nobody will return.
The situation is beyod imagination.
Also, the press should research the issue about Fukushima.

Not too long ago, a young woman died of leukemia.
I heard that younger people began to wear masks immediately.
Why didn’t the government urge them to wear masks earlier?

In addition, many people, young and old have died of heart attacks.

Therefore, the press should hurry and do good researches within Fukushima Prefecture before reporting.

I myself is opposed to nuclear power plants. We have suffered so much.
Everyone, please do not allow the restart.


11 July 2011

CNN is reporting that according to nuclear safety officials in Japan,
45% of children in the Fukushima prefecture
-- the region where three nuclear reactors experienced a meltdown after the earthquake and tsunami in March of this year --
have evidence that their thyroid gland have been exposed to radiation.

According to "health officials," these levels are not a "risk."

This is the same bullpoop put forth by the MSM after Chernobyl as well, and we all know how that went.

Here's the CNN article.

Meanwhile, back in Japan...

2 December 2012

Almost half of Fukushima children now have thyroid disorders from radiation poisoning, officials blame 'too much seafood'

Not much critical (pun) information comes out of Japan about Fukushima anymore,
and the American MSM seems to have forgotten what watered-down
'reporting' they had done earlier. But the human suffering continues daily in Japan, even though the Japanese government still pretends it's not happening.

The curtain is pulled over the total impact
of this disaster to protect the nuclear power industry.

The government and media blackout has become known as plume gate for the radioactive plume that was released from the Fukushima mishap.

Anti- Terrorist Attack Training at Daini


Japanese police and the Coast Guard on Saturday conducted a large-scale anti-terrorism drill at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima. About 150 personnel participated in the drill at the Fukushima Daini plant, about 10 kilometers from the Daiichi facility. The exercise was based on the scenario that terrorists were attacking the plant. The participating groups include a police firearms control unit and a special attack team, as well as Coast Guard anti-terrorism forces. In the scenario, terrorists tried to approach the nuclear plant from the sea. The Coast Guard unit seized their boat and arrested them. Another unit descending from a helicopter fired at terrorists who were hiding in a boat that had come ashore. Police forces exchanged fire with terrorists who used a car to burst through the front gate of the plant. Officers wearing radiation suits captured the assailants. The National Police Agency believes that the possibility of terrorists targeting nuclear plants has increased. It says they probably saw how troubled people were by the radioactive fallout from the Fukushima plant 2 years ago. National Public Safety Commission Chairman Keiji Furuya said residents had expressed fear over the safety of the nuclear plant. He said the exercise was meaningful, since the participating units were able to demonstrate how well they are prepared for such attacks. May 11, 2013 - Updated 13:25 UTC

yes, but not the safety of the plant premises themselves but HOW SAFE THEY ARE TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY FROM THEM WITHOUT POISONING EVERYONE.

How tricky-dicky this quote is. Just typical.

You do realise that rates of 50% and up ARE not normal right?

Look, I can save you alot of trouble here..we have seen many like you show up in this thread since the event..folks living in Japan...saying " we are not worried, why should you?" And the every popular " Tepco is doing the best they can" and my personal favorite..the "radiation is actually good for you" crowd.. we have seen these accounts come and go..never offering any proof...just always with the questions and misdirection.

Do yourself a favor...spend the time you waste on this thread with your family..because we Know what we know...we have researched and researched this since day one....or at least come on with some proof if you wish to debate some topic....

If you think we are wrong on me your evidence???? I would be happy to discuss it with you..

I may be the only one here that will waste time responding to you, and I bore easy.

Second year disaster related deaths in Fukushima are 14 times much as Miyagi and Iwate

On 5/10/2013, Reconstruction Agency released the data about disaster related deaths. The counted cases are the deaths from the injuries due to 311.

51% of all the death cases are in Fukushima prefecture for some reason. (1,383 among 2,688)

Good for them - The fishermen do not want the highly radioactive groundwater water to be dumped in the sea... but what are Tepco to do? (We all know they will just do it anyway, they really are naughty girls.)

Fukushima Diary

On 5/13/2013, Fukushima Prefectural Federation of Fishries Co-operative Associations decided not to approve the request of Tepco to discharge the ground water. The associations stated some of the members don’t distinguish ground water and contaminated retained water.

Tepco commented they will continue to convince the associations.

..And I bet money will be involved in some way too.

Tepco to start nitrogen gas injection into reactor2 for the first time, “Not knowing the hydrogen gas concentration”

Tepco to start nitrogen gas injection into reactor2 for the first time, “Not knowing the hydrogen gas concentration”
Posted by Mochizuki on May 13th, 2013 · No Comments

Tepco is going to inject nitrogen gas into reactor2 as a test.
They need to keep the hydrogen gas concentration lower than 2% or it may cause hydrogen explosion.
Tepco has been injecting nitrogen gas into reactor1 to purge hydrogen gas but they couldn’t inject it into reactor2 so far.
The part to inject nitrogen gas is suppression chamber of reactor2. However, they don’t actually know the hydrogen gas concentration in suppression chamber of reactor2.
In order to obtain data, they will inject nitrogen gas at 5Nm3/h, for 6 hours a day from 5/14 to 5/17/2013.
The nitrogen gas will be injected in the day time. In case of hydrogen gas concentration going over 2% in Dry Well of PCV, entering reactor2 building will be restricted.

What is producing Hydrogen that they are afraid of explosions, and why now if they have not been monitoring it?

Mafia tactics to keep the contractor workers quiet.

Decontamin ation contractor got the car hit and kidnapped by possible Yakuza members, “Money problems”

On Route 115, the decontamination contractor had his car run into from behind several times. After he stopped his car, he was kidnapped by 4~5 people in the car to have hit his car from behind.
The investigators say the decontamination workers were complaining about the intermediary exploitation by the contractor.
They assume the contractor was kidnapped by Yakuza members.


From 1 May 2013 it quotes 75 gallons per minute as a leak. How does that compare with the 400 tonnes per day which is groundwater flowing INTO the buildings whereas this is leaking OUT of the buildings - apparently.
Nuclear power plant stricken in 2011 tsunami now leaking radioactive groundwater

The water contains strontium, a byproduct of nuclear fission, and the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant is leaking it at a rate of 75 gallons per minute.

possibly because it HAS a bearing on his as well as a good chunk of the worlds existence. radiation traveling in the air to north america, fish products from the ocean being contaminated with radiation, etc. maybe even concern for the poor people in Japan that are being effected by it. concern for the environment that is being severely damaged, by this ongoing crises.

perhaps better questions would be, "why the lack of real concern by TEPCO, the Japanese nuclear industry and the Japanese government"? "why have they let this problem continue as they mislead the public and can't effectively deal with the situation"?

this has been a horrible tragedy, that has been ongoing for far too long due to the INCOMPETENCE of the Japanese nuclear industry and an apparent uncaring government.

Really? I read someone on this very thread complaining that his migraines were related to Fukushima. I think you all need something to worry about, to fill up your empty existences. Again. I ask you to prove categorically, that the radiation in your locale is A) A product of Fukushima exclusively and B) Of hazardous levels. You can't.

Man, this is so sick and twisted. Maybe the whole country should stay locked in there cars for 1000 years? Evacuate? What for.... It's safe! Just stay in your car forever!
[Except for ole Alekto who thinks there are no consequences]

“Notice, please view cherry blossoms from inside of the car because the radiation level is too high”

When you mix old crummy US reactors fueled by Hi-test [illegal] French fuel, refined in England, with uranium from Canada and Australia, you can legally kill as many people as you like and no one will speak up.

Nuclear Power Falters, Engulfed by 'Cauldron' of Bad Luck 13 May 2013 CNBC

Across the country, plans to build nuclear plants have hit roadblocks recently—a sharp turn for a sector that just a few years ago was looking forward to a renaissance. These developments come as energy policy becomes increasingly focused on oil and gas.


With shale and natural gas gaining currency and the cost of building plants soaring, nuclear energy's stock is steadily being devalued. All this is playing out against the backdrop of Japan's nuclear disaster two years ago at Fukushima, which made policymakers think twice about extolling the virtues of nuclear power.
Bradford, who also served as a utility commissioner in New York and Maine, cited a "cauldron of events" for bringing the nuclear push to a standstill, including the use of cheaper and plentiful natural gas to generate electricity, as well as soaring investment costs.

“Mass release of floating radioactive particles in metro St. Louis” possible from inferno at landfill? Fire “smells like dead bodies” — 8,700 tons of nuclear waste nearby 10May13

At a March 15th press conference, Peter Anderson – an economist who has studied landfills for over 20 years – raised the worst-case scenario of a “dirty bomb,” meaning a non-detonated, mass release of floating radioactive particles in metro St. Louis. “Now, to be clear, a dirty bomb is not nuclear fission, it’s not an atomic bomb, it’s not a weapon of mass destruction,” Anderson assured meeting attendants in Bridgeton’s Machinists Union Hall. “But the dispersal of that radioactive material in air that could reach – depending upon weather conditions – as far as 10 miles from the site could make it impossible to have economic activity continue.”

Very good article with lots of associated info
Seafood Safety and Policy - What's safe to eat? How can we know? No date

In Japan, a nation that eats prodigious amounts of seafood, one question sits high on the list of public concerns: Is seafood caught after the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe safe for human consumption?

Last fall, Ken Buesseler, a marine geochemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, combed through a year’s worth of data released by the Japanese fisheries agency. His analysis, published Oct. 26, 2012, in the journal Science, showed that the “vast majority” of fish being caught off Fukushima and surrounding areas had radiation levels below the tightened safe-consumption limit. Among bottom-dwelling species, however, 40 percent came in over that limit. Most important, levels of radiation in the ocean and in seafood did not appear to be declining in the 12 months following the accident.
To Buesseler and others, this persistence is strong evidence of a continuing source of radiation leaking into the environment. Fish naturally lose cesium quite quickly, about 3 percent per day, if they are not re-exposed to some additional cesium source. At the same time, Buesseler acknowledged, the remaining concentrations of radionuclides in fish are generally quite low—lower than limits in force in the United States, and lower than the amount of radiation naturally present in seawater.
