Sailor blames Fukushima radiation for paralysis
Hope there is help for them all.edit on 15-1-2014 by donlashway because: (no reason given)edit on 15-1-2014 by donlashway because: (no reason given)
Fukushima Cover-Up: Extraordinary amount of kids have thyroid cancer — Officials say NOT caused by Fukushima since Chernobyl’s cancers took 4-5 yrs to appear — Yet data shows it started soon after ’86 meltdown… number of cases still rising 25 years later
The Japanese Secrecy Law might actually have begun when the IAEA and the Fukushima Medical University reached an agreement to cover up the future health effects of ionising eadiation and toxic/metal poisoning as reported here; Fukushima Medical University Signed Secrecy Pact With IAEA Fukushima government refused to our formal request of age breakdown and more detailed information concerning of thyroid cancer victims since March 2011… It was disclosed that Fukushima had the investigation committee had several secret meetings, I feel the response concerning this issue is unthinkable for a democratic nation.

“If you look at the totality of the disaster at Fukushima, some evidence is beginning to emerge now which is very frightening. And, I haven’t made a conclusion about it. But there is evidence to suspect that Fukushima may not have been entirely a natural phenomenon – that there may have been man-made component – either with the tsunami creation (that fingerprint of the seismic activity appears to be suspicious – people are looking at that now); and what actually occurred within the plant – that appears to be suspicious. So it would not be unreasonable if this were a 9/11 false flag type of event, that that there would be substantial cover up that might occur after this. I’m not suggesting that’s what happened. I’m just saying that there are questions that are being raised today, and no answers coming forth.
Nuclear regulators in Japan on Friday called on the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) to address rising radiation levels near the crippled Fukushima reactors that have jumped 1000% of previous levels to 7.8 millisieverts, causing a great deal of panic across the Pacific. TEPCO has attributed this rise to radiation emitted from tanks storing contaminated water, which is generated in the process of cooling the damaged reactors. The Voice of Russia has talked to Professor Chris Busby, Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk and a member of the UK Department of Health Committee Examining Radiation Risk for Internal Emitters (CERRIE), who says he doesn’t believe this explanation. In his opinion, such high amounts of radiation can only come from nuclear cores that are already outside the reactors and into the ground. He says Fukushima is "out of control" and poses a lethal danger to millions worldwide.
According to the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center, radiation levels for the following places in the United States have suddenly risen more than 100 points per-minute over typical, three-month averages and may be serious:
According to the chart below from NukeProfessional, this level is **** DANGEROUS. **** Not only is the level of 652 a new, all-time "high" for this city, it is 224 points higher-per-minute than the typical three-month "average" Counts-Per-Minute (CPM) for this location. This is a very significant and sudden increase.

Radiation Alerts have been issued for cities in Pennsylvania and Texas due to sudden increases in local radiation levels - in one case 60x the "typical" level!
The major Dutch pension fund, ABP, has dumped its 18 million Euro of stock in the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) over safety concerns surrounding the ongoing clean-up at the Fukushima nuclear disaster site. ABP in Brussels claims the operator of the stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant failed to respond to requests to discuss safety concerns. ABP, one of the world’s biggest pension funds, had an ?18 million stake in Tepco in September but sold it in the October-December quarter for an undisclosed sum, Reuters reported. On Tuesday, ABP said Tepco has little regard for public safety and did not respond to it repeated requests to discuss safety concerns. ABP thus put Tepco on its list of banned investments, effective Jan. 1.
THE ASAHI SHIMBUN
Tokyo Electric Power Co. has withheld 140 measurements of radioactive strontium levels taken in groundwater and the port of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant between June and November last year. TEPCO has been releasing the combined levels of all radioactive substances, including strontium, that emit beta rays, at the crippled nuclear plant. But strontium levels exceeded the all-beta readings in some instances, leading the utility to decide they were “wrong” and to withhold them from public releases, TEPCO officials said Jan. 8. Previously, TEPCO officials said they had not released the data because the numbers were not confirmed.
Company officials on Jan. 8 insisted the utility had no intention to conceal information. They said they did not disclose the data simply because of inconsistencies in the information. They said TEPCO will release correct readings after determining the cause of the discrepancies by the end of this month.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been caught agreeing in writing to conceal information from the world about the extent of danger, damage and health effects at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster in Japan. Turner Radio Network has obtained official copies of the agreements signed by the IAEA and the Fukui Prefectural Government as well as between the IAEA and Fukushima Medical University. We have the agreements, now YOU have them too!
On 15 January 2013, the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) of Japan provided the IAEA with an update on radioactivity in seawater at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (NPS).
This update on the daily monitoring by TEPCO of seawater near Fukushima Daiichi NPS indicates that the concentrations of all radionuclides (i.e. Cs-134, Cs-137, total Beta and H-3) were relatively stable from 6 to 12 January 2014 at the sampling points T-1 and T-2-1. The sampling points T-1 and T-2-1 near the Fukushima Daiichi NPS are sentinels to assess effects on the environment by incidents including a leakage of contaminated water. The Nuclear Regulation Authority has been closely observing the results of TEPCO's monitoring of seawater at these sampling points.
The NRA also provided an update on the sea area monitoring results for radioactivity obtained from sea water samples taken at a distance of two to 200 kilometers from TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS.
In addition, the NRA released an information circular from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, providing details on a web announcement by TEPCO on the cause of steam emanating from the top of Unit 3 Reactor Building at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS, and which also indicates no abnormality there.
A document on Monitoring Air Dose Rates From a Series of Aircraft Surveys 30 Months After the Fukushima Daiichi NPS Accident was posted by the NRA and is available here.
Can anyone tell me why the sky in this webcam is all blocky but the buildings and foreground are OK? Lots of clouds too.
Yet, when you look at the view goung North and the view going South, the sky is different. That is possible, but is it so likely?
(half of R#4 and the others in the distance) Clouds moving.
(R#1 and R#2) No clouds in here today.
Whether Japan should rely on nuclear power generation will be a main theme in the Feb. 9 Tokyo gubernatorial election as a result of former Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa’s announcement Tuesday that he will run in the election on a “zero nuclear” platform.
His entry will have a great impact on the gubernatorial race as he has secured the wholehearted support of former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, who has renounced his earlier stance favoring nuclear power and now is a strong anti-nuclear advocate, causing embarrassment to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his Liberal Democratic Party. One issue that is likely to come back and haunt Hosokawa, however, is his questionable borrowing of ¥100 million from Sagawa Express Co., which led to his resignation as prime minister in April 1994. He should give a full explanation.
Making a zero-nuclear goal the focus of policy debate in the gubernatorial election is both timely and welcome in view of the devastation that the meltdowns at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant have caused and of the fact that Japan is a quake-prone country. Moreover, there is no established technology that will ensure safe storage of high-level radioactive waste from nuclear power plants for tens of thousands years.
Human, No, it is not low sun as the blockyness is there all the time. I already said one was ponting N and one S. The sun sets in the West even in Japan. The clouds in the R1 & R2 stream are not large and are certainly not covering the whole sky. In fact there are not many at all today. The blockiness in the other one showing R4 is moving which suggests that the 'clouds' are moving in the frame. Any more ideas?edit on 17 Jan 2014 by qmantoo because: (no reason given)
Actually, I thought it could be steam or 'haze' but it could also be that the part of the image which does not move is not refreshed at the normal rate and the part that does is very low resolution.
Another thought I had last night was depending on actual wind, etc., could it be a nuclear 'haze' that's causing it and shows up in one camera because of wind direction? Or do you think one film may be completely substituted?
