[color=chartreuse]Secret documents prove
global cover-up of continued
Fukushima radiation pollution
A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by
has unearthed a shocking series of new evidence proving
of the true severity of the
Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
The executive branch and multiple federal agencies, agencies tasked with keeping the American public safe, did their best to hide and to
cover-up information about a deadly radioactive plume and ensuing fallout that was headed for the West Coast of the United States from
And the unfortunate reality is that the mainstream media continues to blatantly ignore this colossal scandal.

Private emails, meeting transcripts and other key documents reveal that both the Obama White House and the United States Nuclear Regulatory
Commission (NRC) were well aware of just how bad things really were with Fukushima from the early days of the disaster,
“...but did nothing to warn the public about it.”
[color=aqua]“In fact, NRC and the White House purposely did not warn Americans about a massive radiation plume that struck the West Coast just
days after the massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan's eastern coast.”
Once in the jet stream, the radioactive particles travel across the Northern Hemisphere, coming back down to earth with rain, snow, or other
Five days after the Fukushima meltdowns began, radioactive fallout from the disaster reached the West Coast of the United States.
Approximately a week later, Fukushima fallout was measured as far away as France.
France's CEREA has the simulation map of ground deposition of Cesium-137 from the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident on its "Fukushima" page. It
not only shows Japan, but also the entire northern Pacific Rim, from Russian Siberia to Alaska to the West Coast of the US to the entire US.
According to the map, the US, particularly the West Coast and particularly California,may be more contaminated with radioactive
cesium than the western half of Japan or Hokkaido.
It looks more contaminated than South Korea or China. Canada doesn't look too well either, particularly along the border with US on the western half.
Before the self-serving unethical removal of all tracking systems from public view by those with a vested interest, the Fukushima IRSN (France) site
published this cesium dispersion map clearly indicating worldwide saturation of not only Iodine-131, but also Cesium-137.

According to information gathered from hundreds of pages worth of private NRC emails, conference calls and secret meetings, key players in the
Fukushima whitewashing campaign, including the NRC's David McIntyre and Elliot Brenner, were hard at work in the days following the disaster
distracting public attention away from it.
David McIntyre also works in the NRC on public affairs, and spent much of his time creating carefully crafted e-mails that constantly downplayed the
disaster, and any relationship that might be made to the safety status of US nuclear stations.”
The above map depicts the locations of the 104 Commercial Nuclear Reactors in America.
Information pertaining to radiation monitoring worldwide from a variety of sources was suppressed and subsequently scrubbed from the Internet.
This was from CTBT Science and Technology in Vienna, Austria.

By pretending that a radioactive plume did not exist while simultaneously sending out misinformation to the media, these two, in conjunction with
White House officials,
in a criminal cover-up
of the truth.
as a distraction to divert public attention away from Fukushima, and away from the dozens of commercial nuclear reactors in America that are of a
similar age and vulnerability as Fukushima.
A total of 111,592,997 people (36% of the total population of the US) live within 50 miles of a nuclear plant.
The USGOV/NRC is quick to bandy about the ‘104’ reactors number to instill in the American psyche that the above map of those reactors is the end
This is hardly all of the ill-fated truth.
One of these nukes may be in a neighborhood near you.
How much do you really know about the number and locations of these death-dealing monstrosities?
Sixty-five (65) commercial nuclear power plants (with 104 reactors) are currently in operation in the United States. After radioactive material
escaped from Japan’s Fukushima power plant, everyone within 30 kilometres (18 miles) of the doomed plant was evacuated.
Our map shows how many people live close to US nuclear power plants who would have to be evacuated in a similar situation. We have also included three
Canadian nuclear power plants that are dangerously close on our Northern border.

Nuclear Power Reactor Locations and Population within 10 and 50 miles.
Another gigantic elephant in the American room is the veritable plethora of nuclear facilities that are not included in the much bandied about ‘104
commercial reactors’ number - which is designed to lull some of the less-informed (yes, LeDave, you people on Rio Linda), to ignore these
not-so-nice neighbors whom may be quietly polluting your neighborhood - forever - with the nuclear waste shell game.
Here is the Construction and Operating License Status for the US as of this writing:
Just for grins, let’s see how many of these other nukes might be near you?

Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory (KAPL) is a research and development facility dedicated to the support of the US Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program.
KAPL is a government-owned, contractor operated laboratory run by Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation for the United States Department of Energy.
KAPL is responsible for the research, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of U.S. nuclear-powered warships.
KAPL operates two sites in the Schenectady, New York area: the Knolls site in Niskayuna and the Kenneth A. Kesselring site in West Milton. Niskayuna
is the primary site for the KAPL, focusing on the design and development of naval propulsion plants and reactor cores. The West Milton site operates
land-based prototypes of shipboard reactor plants.
This site is also used to train officers and enlisted personnel for the U.S. Navy's fleet of nuclear powered vessels. KAPL employs more than 2,600
people at these sites and others, mostly shipyards in the states of California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Virginia, and Washington.

Has anyone been counting? How many does that add up to?
Whatever the total number of these ‘deadly neighbor forever’ nuclear facilities adds up to, it’s way too many.
Our friend, Ken, ModernSurvivalBlog, nails the ‘what if’ scenario quite succinctly less than two weeks after the (ongoing) Fukushima
disaster/fiasco changed the world forever.
March 24, 2011
"What if a Carrington Event solar flare were to occur, like what had happened in 1859?
Astrophysicists know that it WILL happen again, it’s just a matter of when. If an extreme solar event like that were to take down the electrical
power grid, and-or damage electronic systems from its EMP effects, how long would it be before any, some, most, or all of these nuclear power plants
would runaway to meltdown?
What if a true EMP weapon, or weapons, were to detonate and take down all electrical systems of a region, or wider, what then?
Are the backup generators and their associated electrical control systems impervious to EMP-type effects for example?
What about the control systems of the reactors themselves, are they EMP-proof?
What if the New Madrid fault zone were to unleash a magnitude 9+ earthquake, which geologists agree is possible, then how would the nuclear plants
avoid catastrophe at the reactors in northern Arkansas, eastern Missouri, or others nearby?
What if the San Andreas tears loose in California, how will Diablo Canyon and San Onofre handle it?
What if there is an unforeseen ‘physical’ attack on one of these reactors?
What can the containment vessels withstand with regards to missiles of various strengths?
What if there is a cyber ‘virus’ attack along the lines of the Stuxnet computer virus that attacked the Iranian nuclear development facilities?
These simple questions led me to create a map of all U.S. nuclear reactors, both operational and decommissioned, so to have a look see where the
danger zones ‘might’ be, should a worst-case-scenario occur.
It is difficult to impossible to answer the question, “How far away is a safe distance from a nuclear reactor?”, so I’ve created 100 mile radius
zones (200 mile diameter) around each nuclear plant to provide some visual perspective. Yellow zones are around decommissioned plants.
Remember, it’s all about the wind direction too. The prevailing winds in the US are typically from west to east while normally dipping down into the
south-central U.S. before bending back up the east coast.
Looking at the map density of the circle zones, I’m glad I’m out West."
The federal government recently sponsored a detailed scientific study to better understand how much critical components of our national electrical
power grid might be affected by either a naturally occurring GMD or a man-made EMP."
"Under the auspices of the EMP Commission and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and reviewed in depth by the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory and the National Academy of Sciences, Metatech Corporation undertook extensive modeling and analysis of the potential effects of extreme
geomagnetic storms on the US electrical power grid.
Based upon a storm as intense as the 1921 storm, Metatech estimated that within the United States, induced voltage and current spikes, combined with
harmonic anomalies, would severely damage or destroy over 350 EHV power transformers critical to the functioning of the US grid and possibly impact
well over 2000 EHV transformers worldwide.
EHV transformers are made-to-order and custom-designed for each installation, each weighing as much as 300 tons and costing well over $1
"Given that there is currently a three-year waiting list for a single EHV transformer (due to recent demand from China and India, lead
times grew from one to three years), and that the total global manufacturing capacity is roughly 100 EHV transformers per year when the world's
manufacturing centers are functioning properly, you can begin to grasp the implications of widespread transformer losses."
[color=aqua]What do extended grid blackouts have to do with potential nuclear catastrophes?
Nuclear power plants are designed to disconnect automatically from the grid in the event of a local power failure or major grid anomaly; once
disconnected, they begin the process of shutting down the reactor's core.
In the event of the loss of coolant flow to an active nuclear reactor's core, the reactor will start to melt down and fail catastrophically within a
matter of a few hours, at most.
In an extreme GMD,
nearly every reactor in the world
could be affected.
It is true that the NRC has worked hard against the burden of purchasing, storing, and maintaining a fresh supply of KI (potassium iodide) for
those populations closest to nuclear reactors.
In 2009, the NRC actually canceled its policy on KI distribution, stating that it was unnecessary, as it did not protect against all radionuclides
that could be potentially released, would cause undue stress on the community, and would delay critical response time by adding more duties to local,
state and federal staff.
Does “undue stress on the community” trump the invisible, slow death by fallout?
One might surmise that amongst a host of other government travesties, RICO statutes were also violated, so now would be the time for the US Attorney
General to step in and protect us - we, the people, of the United States of America.
However, Eric H. Holder is probably in on it.
Unfortunately, it is painfully obvious that ‘Fast-N-Furious Slippery Eric’ will not take any action against his cohorts here.
Starting at the top, the most prestigious office in the land, the President of the United States, we are continuing to witness corruption at the
highest level - government agencies hiding the truth and deliberately deceiving the public - designed to disenfranchise American citizens of the right
to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness - not to mention the implementation of mass genocide here in the homeland and worldwide.
This fish stinks from head to tail!
Interestingly enough, and surely by co-inkydink, the Qur’an burnings in Afghanistan were taking place and hogging the MSM headlines and ‘face
time’ just as these documents were being made public.
It should be no surprise that the corporate controlled mainstream media is ignoring this blockbuster revelation even now instead of exposing it and
demanding an investigation.
Issa calls Obama admin. ‘the most corrupt government in history’
“If they reported to the White House and the White House did nothing, shame on the White House,” he said. “But even if they didn’t report to

Fukushima now radiating everyone: 'Unspeakable' reality
The Fukushima crisis is far from over. The crippled nuclear power plant is still leaking; and, judging from Chernobyl, recovery will not be
measured in years, more like centuries," reported the Australian presenter Liz Hayes.
Australia's CBS exposed the "unspeakable" realities of the Japanese catastrophe in its
60 Minutes program Sunday night during which leading
nuclear scientist Dr. Michio Kaku said
radiation from Fukushima will impact of all of humanity.
The nuclear energy power industry violation of the right to health is apparent throughout the new Australian report.
"In fact, the whole world will be exposed from the radiation from Fukushima,"
Dr. Kaku told CBS reporter Liz Hayes.
Dr. Kaku told Hayes,
"If you've been exposed to Cesium because you're a nuclear power worker, even after your long dead and buried, your grave site will
"Your great grand kids can come to your grave site with a Geiger counter and see that great granddaddy still has radiation at his grave
Intrepid reporter Hayes continues,
“The human face of this dreadful situation can be seen in shelters in public buildings. It’s where you’ll find families, old and
young, struggling to retrieve their lives - a near impossibility when all you have is a cardboard box to mark out your spot, your home.
I don’t know how Japan will recover, and how these refugees will survive.
Fukushima could well
become a dead zone,
where no one will
ever be able to return.”

Puzzled by the argument going on here.
Why is that one needs to refer to "secret documents" to determine the amount of radiation exposure.
Given that all sorts of radiation detection equipment is perfectly legal and easy to purchase if you've got a small number of dollars (eg,
build your own for $30), how could one assert any kind of cover up?
Why not just walk outside and do a measurement yourself?
Is it ...

b. Actual real measurenments simply dont show a doomsday occuring
When Radiation Hit in that great of a concentration and numbers there was no where to hid for anybody.The entire Northern Hemisphere was hit with it
and continues to be hit with it. Nothing could of been done because of the speed in which it hit the atmosphere and spread. The only thing that can be
done is to move everybody to Antartica. Southern Hemisphere is the only place where a person would avoid the Radiation. That being said how do the
World Governments move over 8 Billion people to Antartica. Antartica's temperatures fall to -60 in the Winter. They still can't move everybody to
Antartica. I guess you could voluntarily move there. Good luck to you. There's no way of avoiding this problem and its too late for the blame
game.Its just like everything else that can potentially destroy us. If there's nothing that can be done why tell everybody. There would be anarchy
and I myself would rather not know than have anarchy. It happened so take your Lugol's Iodine and make the best of it. Live each day like its your
last and enjoy it.

This is one of the most informative and well put together threads I have seen on ATS. I have had my own concerns about how I have thought that
something was being deliberately understated and hidden about the true radiation aftermath of the Fukishima disaster in 2011. I have read articles on
how milk had been tested at 2000% higher than EPA maximum allowable limits. Star and flag. Very telling and interesting.
Thank you for your post, however, here's the real question.
What is your purpose?
Just what answer do you have for the government?
How would YOU supply the nation's energy needs?
These reactors can not just be "shut down." They are there, and will remain just so, long into the future until such time comes that a new means of
safety measure is set in place where we may do these types of things you're loudly demanding. Scaring people serves no purpose. Some of what
you've said is true, a larger portion of it, however again, is very exaggerated.
You put down the way we are doing things but offer no real solution yourself. I never endorse these types of threads. All they do is cause fear,
anger, and uncertainty. No matter how many graphical portrayals you present of the situation at hand, it doesn't change things one bit.

Hey thorfourwinds... long time no hear. Good work as usual. Must to keep this in the light of day. Everyone is so Fuku'd out and the media tells us
nothing. I thought I would bring some data about pollution that already regularly arrives on the West Coast of the US. This includes dust from
sandstorms in China, coal dust from smokestacks and even Lead particles. Here are a couple links for people to read about "ordinary" pollution
travelling all that ways.
