(audio interview at link)
Now nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen who is one of the only people providing objective scientific analysis about the Fukushima nuclear fallout believes based on his analysis of the problems that TEPCO simply doesn’t have enough money to deal with the issues there.
Documents obtained from the US government through FOIA requests, being dubbed Plume-Gate by the alternative media, reveal the US has colluded in the cover up of the disaster as well.

Bad news. Bad enough that if we don't get after this it will result in our extinction.
Well, if we keep burying our heads in the sand about this issue we won't have a livable planet. There is no time for playing cover-up now. It's time for the world to put it's collective heads together and fix the problem.

Money? Did someone say: "Money"? Please tell me this isn't about MONEY? Will there ever come a time...when mankind doesn't have his mind on his 'money' and his 'money' on his mind? You would figure...MONEY is the least of our worries. Are they going to use the TRILLIONS of dollars of debt, to plug up the gaps, or what? For once, can't we do something for FREE; considering this is a MAJOR PROBLEM for humanity? Money? What the heck is money gonna do?
Sometimes, you just have to wonder about the people in control of our world/system. They are absolutely CLUELESS...like the rest of mankind. Why EXACTLY do we ESTEEM these pathetic 'leaders'? Why do we call them 'experts'? If they were such 'experts', the problem wouldn't have happened in the 1st place. You don't become an 'expert' after the fact; you should be an 'expert' before SHTF.

I am Arnie Gundersen from Fairewinds and today I am at the Regulatory Information Conference put on by the NRC in Washington D.C.
So today, I am in Washington D.C. Couple of weeks ago though, I was in Tokyo and when I was in Tokyo, I took some samples. Now, I did not look for the highest radiation spot. I just went around with five plastic bags and when I found an area, I just scooped up some dirt and put it in a bag. One of those samples was from a crack in the sidewalk. Another one of those samples was from a children’s playground that had been previously decontaminated. Another sample had come from some moss on the side of the road. Another sample came from the roof of an office building that I was at. And the last sample was right across the street from the main judicial center in downtown Tokyo. I brought those samples back, declared them through Customs, and sent them to the lab. And the lab determined that ALL of them would be qualified as radioactive waste here in the United States and would have to be shipped to Texas to be disposed of.
