Ever heard the saying 'complacency kills' ?
Suggesting that the colossal radiation leaks from Fukishma is unimportant
deserves a Darwin award.
Perhaps trolls of this thread would be
happy to demonstrate their faith in the harmlessness of the Fukushma incident by visiting the site, up close ?
If you want to ignore these warnings.. then go ahead.
But remember... Complacency kills.

Greetings esteemed Member bobjtowers
Thank you for your time, consideration and participation. May we please address OP first?
Semper Fi, Semperfortis.
We salute you for your effort to gain knowledge, so here we humbly share the following.
If this thread was meant to engender debate and smoke out one of the - "now perhaps lurking, not adding to the discussion and bewildered
at the direction the major Japan/Fukushima thread was allowed to degenerate into"
- previous contributors, it worked.
We are truly amazed that presenting what is a pure fact - without any spin associated to it - can generate such an outbreak of insecurity and outright
Total denial is much more safe for fragile minds to comprehend than the thought of the consequences of the world's largest, most-provable cover-up
regarding the true situation at Fukushima.
We had always expected that readers here can receive and interpret facts as presented, instead of demanding filtering for what some deem is unpleasant
We urge that sub-segment to immediately and permanently orient their attention to other media outlets that does the pre-filtering for them, per the
Federal government's mandate of not spreading panic.
Generally, we don't waste time over here much anymore because of the free-reigning trolls and incomprehensible OP's such as this.
However, we cannot and will not let these ill-advised comments go unchallenged, regardless of the author's SuperModerator position. We are fully well
aware of the consequences of crossing swords with an ATS Moderator, well, at least on this forum. [snip]
Without question, the triple nuclear power plant meltdowns at Fukushima Dai-ichi changed the world forever.
Since radioactive water was previously mentioned on this delightful, spirited thread, let's start with the river flowing to the sea underneath the
triple meltdowns, although some consider Reactors #1 and #2 to be complete melt-throughs, having breached primary containment and the secondary
The very fact that TEPCO admitted to 300 tons/day "leaking" into the Pacific probably means the real figure is closer to 800-1,000, considering
TEPCO's track record for the truth about the real dangers at Fukushima.
Take a median figure of 600 tons/day x 1039 days = 623,400 tons of highly-radioactive water containing Cs-134/137 and Strontium 90 that have very long
half-lives.... and these are estimates supplied by TEPCO, as there is no way to measure the actual amount of water flowing beneath the crippled plant.
And the idea of the "Wall of frozen soil" is so stupid that, if the situation was not so dire, it would be laughable and another unbelievable example
of TEPCO's 'leadership.'
However, then there's this:
"According to EU bylaws, radiation limits may be raised during a nuclear emergency to prevent food shortages."
To bring it closer to home, how many of you purchase and consume produce from California?
An interesting research project is to investigate how much of the produce - vegetables, fruits, nuts, wine etc. - is grown in California and are
subject to the fallout-laden rain.
The radioactive plume emanating from the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant #1 catches a ride on the Jet Stream and saturates
North America with radioactive particles (FALLOUT) each and every time it rains or snows - yes, it may have been a mistake to let the little ones out
to play in the yellow snow the past few weeks.
And the FDA, Fisheries and NOAA continue with the platitude that "there is no need to test the seafood coming from Alaskan
Check this out:
The following graph in ONLY from March to July, 2011. Today is Day 1036
and the radioactive substances have been emanating from Fukushima -
both in the air and water - 24/7/365
. And the amounts are based on the TEPCO information given to them at that time, not the
updated 'estimates' that are orders of magnitude higher in many instances.
That first paragraph seems to question the OP's inference that atmospheric nuclear weapon tests are/were more catastrophic to the environment than
The horrific reality is, millions of people were made victims overnight by Fukushima. Gigantic stretches of land were made uninhabitable - essentially
forever in terms of a human's lifespan. The radioactive cloud spread all over the world and large areas of the world are becoming contaminated by
long-lived nuclear elements secondary to catastrophic meltdowns: 40 percent of Europe from Chernobyl, and much of Japan.
No one in America is safe from the fallout-laced winds, but the fact that radioactive hot particles from the triple meltdowns at Fukushima were more
prevalent in Seattle than in Tokyo - 5-10 per day in April of 2011 - might be of concern to our brothers and sisters who were sacrificed on the West
Coast to placate the nuclear dragon.
And this from 7 June 2012... a peer-reviewed study that leaves absolutely no wriggle room.
According to the Semper OP, the populace of the United States has nothing to concern themselves with and this suppressed information is not relevant
to their future well-being.
We challenge your assertions, Sir.
An understanding of the challenges, dangers and solutions of the use of nuclear energy exploded in a countless number of minds worldwide on March 11,
Even in America, people became sick and died due to the radiation they incorporated into their bodies merely through eating, drinking and breathing,
and the largest provable cover-up in history has succeeded in convincing the
"All is well. If there was anything to concern yourself with, the EPA would tell you."
The same EPA that had 20% of the radiation detectors off-line in the early days of the disaster, before they decided to take all of them off-line on 3
May 2011, because "there is no need to monitor as there is no threat of radiation reaching America's shores."
