I am old enough to remember the demonstrations against Nuclear Power. It was all flower power and I swear most of the demonstrators were high on
grass. A few even had degrees and doctorates.
Fast forward around 50 years and time has shown that these demonstrators were right on two fronts. Grass was not the devil it was made out to be and
Nuclear Energy was not the savior it was made out to be.
Grass is being legalised across the US and the doom of Nuclear Power hangs like an atomic cloud above our heads.
History repeats itself. The same industry that painted Nuclear Power as all nice and made from sugar and spice and fluffy ducks based its politicking
on lies and deception. And they still do.
Japan has had to control its media like a dictatorial regime to keep a lid on the truth because it threatens a huge industry. The US Nuclear Industry
is either silent or continues the deception.
The problem that we are faced with now, is that the truth will take a long time to surface.
But, and this is a huge but, the West Coast of the US is home to many Nuclear Reactors and these sit on the ring of fire and when Mother Nature
decides to show off .... we will have the ugly truth right in front of us, killing millions ... and then the blame game will start.
It will be far to late by then.
So whom do we blame?
Mums and dads and ordinary folk, too lazy to look at the truth. Too caught up in trivia like honey boo boo and such drivel. Too complacent to get
off their fat butts and take action.
Well, we could be looking at an end to modern society. We will have to rebuild from the poisonous ashes .... but will we still be human ... or will
our genetics be altered by radiation such that we will be largely mutants.
Then all of the lazy folk will start to point fingers, but never at themselves, that is not in their makeup.
There is no answer to Fukashima. It should be a huge wake-up call. But no, hit snooze and turn over.

The incredible time it takes for the waste to become safe. We are tying a mill stone around future generations.
The other is that these Nuclear Power plants are just sitting there, waiting for a war to erupt.
As an example, North Korea has truckloads of conventional medium range missiles, all capable of striking Japan. In themselves, they cannot do
terribly much damage even considering the thousands that North Korea has.
But just imagine the scenario should North Korea target the Nuclear Reactors in Japan. The desolation would be extreme! All it takes is one idiot
now or in the future to decide to target these facilities.
A submarine closes on the US West Coast and fires a few missiles from a position just off-shore aimed at just a few reactors.....
It is pure insanity to run Reactors when any misstep by man or mother nature can drop the hammer of doom on so many heads, both now and in the
That was a great thread and I thank you for all of the hard work that went into it. It is a credit to your solid devotion to try and wake up the

The problem of course for San Onofre, Humboldt and Rancho Seco is that even after being shut down all spent fuel is still onsite in canisters that are
designed to last 100 years when in truth they look like they need replacing every 20 years. Similar storage techniques in other sites have shown,
especially if close to ocean salt air, corrosion eats through these canisters quicker than thought.
If the spent fuel at either of the two big plants, San Onofre or Rancho Seco, goes critical its game over for California, no different than Diablo
Typhoon Goni hit Sendai head on with strong winds and up to ten inches of rain yesterday. Today a 5.5 EQ hits not far away and the volcano is still

Restarting Sendai is like playing a new game called Japanese roulette.
There.....here. The plume is beginning to come onshore. Actually, given that very little testing is taking place, it probably came ashore up here in
NorCal awhile ago. From ENE this AM.
The sample was taken just over a mile off the coast of Del Mar, CA – located about 15 miles north of San Diego and 100 miles south of Los Angeles.
The only other location Woods Hole has reported detecting nuclear waste from Fukushima Daiichi along the shoreline of North America is in Ucluelet,
Canada about 1,200 miles to the north of Del Mar.
7.2 becquerels per cubic meter of Cesium-134 and Cesium-137 was measured in a Ucluelet sample taken in February 2015. The Del Mar sample had 8.4
Results for other Fukushima Daiichi-derived radionuclides were not posted. According to media reports, “The plume also contains other radioactive
material, including Strontium 90… radioactive isotopes of iodine, low levels of plutonium and tritium might be in the plume.”
According to Woods Hole scientist Ken Buesseler, “As the plume begins to arrive along the West Coast [it] will actually increase in concentration…
no public agency in the US is monitoring the activities in the Pacific… Without careful, extensive, consistent monitoring, we’ll have no way of
knowing how much radiation from Fukushima is reaching our shores, and how it could affect life in the ocean.”
“The plume also contains other radioactive material, including Strontium 90… radioactive isotopes of iodine, low levels of
plutonium and tritium might be in the plume"
Isn't this a telltale of recent fission due to it's extremely short half life?
How'd this make it across the Pacific?
Tracked down the source:
The plume also contains other radioactive material, including Strontium 90 at a far, far lower level than was released into the atmosphere during
the nuclear bomb testing up until the 1960s. As well, radioactive isotopes of iodine, low levels of plutonium and tritium (hydrogen 3)
might be in the plume.
While release rates of radioactive material peaked shortly after the Fukushima disaster, and they have been dropping off since, there is no sign the
release is going to stop, Dr. Cullen said.
He said he thinks there needs to be more monitoring, especially since the radioactive discharge will continue.
Dr. Cullen is in the process of trying to build a network along the coast to measure the incoming radiation. He'd like to see if any Haida Gwaii
residents are interested.
ON EDIT: And then I open up the Diary and find this. More findings of I-131 in sludge. Very strange. Maybe they will find I-131 in the west coast
plume after all. Fission must be occurring somewhere. From this AM at the Diary.
According to Gunma prefectural government, 24 Bq/Kg of I-131 was detected from dehydrated sludge of a sewage plant.
From their monthly report published on 8/7/2015, the sample was collected from 7/27 to 7/29/2015. The sewage plant is situated beside Tonegawa

Lets see them spin this one. The condition killing the seals is closely related to Solid tumors and blood cancers (particularly acute promyelocytic
leukemia). If the seals are found to have the AML type leukemia then Fukushima will be the prime suspect one might assume.
Of the 46 recently weaned northern elephant seals deaths reported by the San Francisco Bay Area’s Marine Mammal Center between April 20 and
August 1 of this year, Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation was listed as a cause of death in 16 — over 1/3 of the total.
Acute promyelocytic leukemia is a subtype of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), a cancer of the white blood cells. According to Wikipedia,
“ionizing radiation exposure can increase the risk of AML. Survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had an increased rate of AML,
as did radiologists exposed to high levels of X-rays”
Ok, so the I-131 referenced in the ENEnews post is only potential, but what is referenced by fukushima-diary is actual and measured.
This is an indication that, recently, there has been fission of sufficient amounts and duration to produce this amount of I-131 that has, and is(?),
continuing to be detected.
Interesting how the facts that are published go directly against the words being used by TurdCo and JapGov to describe the situation at Fukushima
Alice: But I don't want to go among mad people.
The Cat: Oh, you can't help that. We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.
Alice: How do you know I'm mad?
The Cat: You must be. Or you wouldn't have come here.
We fell (or is more likely the case, were stuffed) through the rabbit hole so long ago that any semblance of reality has long since lost all meaning
and only insanity is regarded as 'normal.'

Cleanup Starts in Fukushima's Restricted Zone - Aug. 28, 2015 SO THEY CAN MOVE BACK AND REBUILD!
Full-scale decontamination work has begun in one of the areas in Fukushima Prefecture that received the highest doses of radioactive fallout from
the 2011 nuclear accident.
About 30 workers gathered at an elementary school in the town of Okuma on Friday. They used heavy machinery to remove top soil from the
Okuma partly hosts the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. The government has determined that some parts of the town will remain restricted areas
where people will not live for an extended time.
In these restricted zones, decontamination work had only been carried out on an experimental basis.
But at the request of town officials, the Environment Ministry decided to launch full-scale cleanup work targeting a district where there are a lot
of schools and public facilities.
The ministry plans to finish decontaminating the roughly 95-hectare area by next March.
Similar restricted zones exist in 6 other municipalities in Fukushima.
Ministry officials plan to decide whether to start decontaminating them after checking their radiation levels and the wishes of the
"Abnormalities" Found in Fir Trees Near Fukushima Plant- Aug. 28, 2015
Japan's Environment Ministry has found abnormalities in fir trees near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
The ministry has been observing about 80 species of wild animals and trees near the plant since 2011, when Japan suffered its worst nuclear
At the request of the ministry, the National Institute of Radiological Sciences analyzed fir trees in areas where radiation levels are relatively
high and published the results on Friday.
The results show that Japanese fir populations in the area showed a significantly increased number of morphological defects, including deletions of
leader shoots of the main branch axis.
The study shows that 98 percent of fir trees in a 3.5-kilometer area from the damaged plant have defects. The radiation dose in the area is about
34 microsieverts per hour.
The results also show that 44 percent of fir trees have defects in an 8.5-kilometer zone with 20 microsieverts of radiation, and 27 percent in a
15-kilometer zone with 7 microsieverts of radiation.
BULLSH1T WARNING: The Environment Ministry says no abnormality has so far been confirmed in other animals and trees.

Sendai Nuclear Plant Resumes Output Increase IN SPITE OF LEAKS AND CRACKS in Cooling Pipes! Aug. 27, 2015
The operator of Japan's only restarted nuclear power plant has resumed increasing power output one week after equipment trouble forced it to
suspend the ramp-up.
Kyushu Electric Power Company suspended the output increase last Thursday after a problem was found with one of the No. 1 reactor's condensers at
the Sendai plant in Kagoshima Prefecture in southwestern Japan.
The utility said seawater leaked from damaged intake pipes into the condenser. The company stopped increasing the output while it inspected the
equipment and fixed the problem.
The utility had restarted the reactor just 9 days earlier, on August 11th. It was generating power at 75 percent of capacity at the time of the
The condenser turns steam that drives the turbine back into water. Neither the steam nor the water is radioactive.
The utility said on Thursday that it had completed its inspections and fixed the problem by the previous day, and that nothing else amiss had been
found. The company started increasing energy output again in the morning, and it had reached 95 percent by the evening.
However, the utility might miss its target to go back into commercial operation by early September.
They say that they have moved that testing site further away, now 1 km from the plant, on the 26th. Don't know why they haven't been posting data
though. The other thing I don't understand is why the detection limit keeps on changing for the earlier results that they have posted. Typical TEPCO

in Fukushima Prefecture in December 2011…

The official widely-observed policy is that small amounts of radiation are harmless: scientifically speaking this is untenable…the Japanese
Government is attempting to increase the public limit for radiation in Japan from 1 mSv to 20 mSv per year…
This is not only unscientific, it is also unconscionable…
In sum, the health toll from the Fukushima nuclear disaster is horrendous…
The Fukushima accident is still not over and its ill-effects will linger for a long time into the future. However we can say now that the nuclear
disaster at Fukushima delivered a huge blow to Japan and its people…
It is impossible not to be moved by the scale of Fukushima’s toll in terms of deaths, suicides, mental ill-health and human suffering. Fukushima’s
effect on Japan is similar to Chernobyl’s massive blow…
Natural Life on Earth , all of it, is a sequence of of operations that are all interconnected and interdependent at the most primary levels;
watch Doug Tallamy ( video.pbs.org... ) explain ecosystem substantiation in the human world 'habitat' that exists and then add
even moderate radiation increase to any one zone ( let alone the entire northern hemisphere )
It means that fuku is not just the "SILENT" disaster but also the last one for mankind as we know it, and almost all other species , as corporate /
financial concentration has placed individuals with insane amounts of financial clout in a position where they consider the basic elements of the
biosphere as "manageable assets" , and a 'race to the bottom' is currently in play for the effect of reducing or eliminating 'environmental '
variables so that maximum control can be established.
