Even the Media are beginning to realise that they can't protect the Nuclear Industry for much longer - they've given it as much protection as they
can in the hope that the Reactors would be brought under control and the Global population would never be any wiser - but as every day passes they
realise they have dug themselves into a very deep hole.
"The group's warning underlines the dangers posed by the out-of-control facility which is causing unprecedented damage to earth, sea and sky.
Fukushima is the nuclear death machine of which advocates of green technologies have warned for decades. But while the magnitude of the disaster grows
larger by the day, the government's only response has been to expand the evacuation zone and try to shape news to avert a panic.
Emergency crews have braved high levels of radiation to bring the plant back under control, but with little success. A number of violent tremors and a
second smaller tsunami have made their jobs nearly impossible. Thousands of gallons of radioactive water that was used as coolant has been flushed
into the sea threatening marine life and sensitive habitat. The toxic release of radiation now poses an incalculable risk to a battered fishing
industry and to fish-stocks around the world. These costs were never factored in when industry executives and politicians decided to exploit an energy
source that can cause cancer, pollute the environment for millennia, and bring the world's third largest economy to its knees.
By raising the alert-rating to its highest level (7) regulators are conceding that a "major release of radioactive material with widespread health
and environmental effects" is taking place. The situation is getting worse by the day. Japan's government will now insist on the "implementation of
planned and extended countermeasures." In other words, a red alert. The threat to water supplies, food sources, livestock and humans is no longer in
doubt. The media's efforts to protect the nuclear industry by downplaying the scale of the catastrophe have been moderately successful, but the truth
is gradually beginning to surface as more people look to alternate sources of information. The disaster has been as ruinous to the media's reputation
as it has been to the environment. "
"The risks associated with iodine-131 contamination in Europe are no longer "negligible," according to CRIIRAD, a French research body on
radioactivity. The NGO is advising pregnant women and infants against "risky behaviour," such as consuming fresh milk or vegetables with large
