Mysterious spike in radioactive particles across Europe baffles scientists

Mysterious spike in radioactive particles across Europe baffles scientists

Germany’s Office for Radiation Protection reported increased radioactivity in parts of central and western Europe over the past week. The heightened levels were detected at several trace measuring stations in Europe, and at six locations in Germany.

The particles are ruthenium-106, an isotope used in radiotherapy for eye tumors, and at times in radioisotope thermoelectric generators (RTGs) which provide power to satellites. An increase of ruthenium-106 has been detected in the air in Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.

While officials say there is no need to panic, they don’t know where the material has come from. The elevated radiation levels do not present a threat to human health.

“New analyses of the source of the radioactive material are likely to indicate a release in the southern Ural,” the Office for Radiation Protection said, “but other regions in Southern Russia can not be excluded.”

It said that because only ruthenium-106 has been detected, a nuclear power plant accident can be ruled out.

The Russian state atomic energy corporation Rosatom, however, rejected the report, saying that “the radiation situation around all Russian nuclear facilities is within the norm and corresponds to natural background radiation.”

The Wednesday statement also noted the data of Roshydromet ,Russia’s meteorology service, indicated that ruthenium-106 hasn’t been detected on Russian territory, only excluding St. Petersburg, from September 25 to October 7. However, the ruthenium-106 concentration in St. Petersburg last week was “insignificant,” and was four times lower than the allowed level, it added.

Russian nuclear facilities cannot be seen as the source of the reported release, Rosatom said, calling the speculation about a Russian origin “invalid.”

Similar spikes in radioactive particles have occurred across Europe in the past, but they are rare.

In February, trace amounts of radioactive iodine-131 were detected across parts of Europe. The iodine faded, and the source of the radioactivity wasn’t identified, Motherboard reports.

France’s IRSN institute announced the trace amounts were detected over Norway, Finland, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, France and Spain.

Thousands of Sharks, Other Sea Life Mysteriously Die in San Francisco Bay

As many as 2,000 leopard sharks have mysteriously died in the San Francisco Bay over the past few months. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says determining the cause is not a priority for the state since the sharks are not threatened or endangered, however, scientists say additional research and resources are crucial since the threat is now believed to be preying on other marine life.

“This year is unusual in that there has been a large number of other species that have also been dying,” said Dr. Mark Okihiro, a research scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. “This pathogen can tackle a variety of different species … we’ve had a much more diverse group of fish that have been found dead in the San Francisco Bay.”

At least 500 bat rays, hundreds of striped bass, 50 smooth-hound sharks and about 100 halibut died in the bay between February and July, according to Okihiro’s estimates.

Michio KaKu, Fukushima the End of Humanity: Nuclear Radiation to Cause Massive Killing in USA, UK and Canada +Videos

Nearly six years have passed since an earthquake and tsunami in Japan killed 16,000 people and caused nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. New research now suggests that the radiation released by the nuclear disaster may have lingering effects on fish—but that the risk posed to human beings from consumption, thanks in part to strong regulation, is maxim.

10 days ago from this writing, the sardine fishery of British Columbia, Canada was reported to have “inexplicably” collapsed. Simply no sardines were caught and the fleet went home, empty-handed. Starfish and seal populations in that region are also collapsing.

We’ve heard now about three complete meltdowns that are occurring at the afflicted power plant at Fukushima – but we’ve never heard about the fact that there are actually 6 reactors at the site! We know that this week, 2 separate typhoons (the term for hurricanes in the western Pacific) will be colliding exactly over Fukushima this week, all the better to disperse the unfathomable tonnage of hot particles into the Pacific Ocean Basin, set to do further ruin to the already-collapsing ecosystems throughout this immense area.

Were there to be a fire spread, due to the hundreds of unsecured nuclear fuel rods at the plant today, a chain reaction could occur and “The Northern Hemisphere could easily be facing an extreme fallout situation, where everybody would have to shelter indoors for several months or more,” according to Christina Consolo, Founder of Nuked Radio. When interviewed by Russia Today, Consolo’s assessment was that the worst case scenario could play out into the deaths of “billions of people. A true apocalypse.”

Expert: Plutonium-241 from Fukushima nearly 70,000 times more than atomic bomb fallout in Japan — Gov’t Labs: Large areas of oceans contaminated by plutonium from events such as Fukushima; Build-up in biosphere expected; Considerable hazard to humans — Officials: Molten fuel now ‘particle-like’, contains ‘special’ nuclear materials.

A new radiation reading taken deep inside Japan’s damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor No. 2 shows levels reaching a maximum of 530 sieverts per hour, a number experts have called “unimaginable”.

Even a brief exposure to 530 sieverts of radiation would kill a person. Exposure to only one sievert is enough to result in infertility, loss of hair and cataracts. According to the National Institute of Radiological Sciences, exposure to a mere four sieverts of radiation would typically be lethal for one out of every two people. The highest level of radiation detected previously at the Fukushima reactor was 73 sieverts per hour.

The attempted cover up of the severity of the Fukushima disaster is nothing new. Governments have been covering up nuclear meltdowns for 50 years, and the basic design for nuclear reactors was not chosen for safety, but because it worked on Navy submarines … and produced plutonium for the military.

Nuclear Expert: We found ‘mystery’ Fukushima plutonium; Why it’s there is yet to be understood, this was not expected — US Gov’t Expert: I don’t want to go down the rabbit hole too far… There’s speculation about plutonium fuel and about what other fuel they were using.

(Indeed, the government’s response to every crisis appears to be to try to cover it up; and see this.)
Today, Yomiuri Shinbun reports (Google translation) that the U.S. knew within days that Fukushima had melted down:

The US … already knew about the unusually high temperature of the reactors from the Global Hawk data, and determined that “the fuel has already melted”.

The US high-ranking officials wanted to evacuate the US citizens [Tokyo] but the local officials including Maher objected, as “it would severely undermine the US-Japan alliance”

In this article by Green Road Journal, they claim that the mass media, for the most part, is reporting a pro nuclear industry view. After, they say, six years of research, the authors put forward their pessimistic view:
Fukushima has released 257 Tons Of Heavy Metal Radioactive Poisons; 429 Lethal Radiation Doses Chasing Each Person on the Planet (Dr. Paolo Scamp), and that it is 12,000 times worse than Chernobyl.
Mass die offs in ocean started in 2011, but the situation is getting worse.

Some believe Tokyo is not safe to live in, and should be evacuated, and that the radiation is bioconcentration up the food chain to humans.
There is an increase in frequency of mutations, being found in trees, insects, plants, birds, animals — and  the entire western coastline of Pacific ocean is basically sterilized, with few species remaining.The soil and lichens have VERY high radioactivity.   6000 Bq /kG!    30 Bq/kG is dangerous to animals and above 100 Bq/kG said animals cannot be sold.

The impact of the Fukushima-derived radiostrontium ((90)Sr and (89)Sr) on the western North Pacific Ocean has not been well established, although (90)Sr concentrations recorded in surface seawater offshore of the damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant were in some areas comparable to or even higher than (as those in December 2011 with 400 kBq m(-3)(90)Sr) the (137)Cs levels. The total amount of (90)Sr released to the marine environment in the form of highly radioactive wastewater could reach about 1 PBq. Long-term series (1960-2010) of (90)Sr concentration measurements in subtropical surface waters of the western North Pacific indicated that its concentration has been decreasing gradually with a half-life of 14 y. The pre-Fukushima (90)Sr levels in surface waters, including coastal waters near Fukushima, were estimated to be 1 Bq m(-3). To better assess the impact of about 4-5 orders of magnitude increased radiostrontium levels on the marine environment, more detail measurements in seawater and biota of the western North Pacific are required.

The company has admitted that it did not act properly during the disaster, confessing in February that it announced the nuclear meltdowns far too late. It also stated in a 2012 report that it downplayed safety risks caused by the incident, out of fear that additional measures would lead to a shutdown of the plant and further fuel public anxiety and anti-nuclear campaigns.

Despite the ongoing problems encountered following the meltdowns, TEPCO has set 2020 as the goal for ending the plant’s water problem – an aim which critics say is far too optimistic. The problem of water contamination is just one of many surrounding the dismantling and containing of the Fukushima plant debris which is estimated to take at least 40 years. Fukushima Nuclear Rdiation Cause Massive Killing In U.S.A, UK, And CANADA.

Is Miso the World’s Most Effective Protection Against Radiation?

miso-soup-radiation

With worrying updates about the incident at Fukushima still making news headlines, the threat of radiation is fresh on many people’s minds.

There’s been so much whitewashing surrounding the tragedy that it can be hard to decipher fact from pro-nuclear propaganda. The general consensus in the alternative health community is that authorities haven’t told us the whole story about how much radioactive material was leaked, and is continuing to leak, into the environment.

One thing is clear, though: the presence of harmful radiation is a very real issue—one about which we would do well to educate ourselves, so that we can take the proper protective measures.

Fukushima resurrected memories of Chernobyl, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki, and reminded us of the horrific effects that ionic radiation can heap upon the body.

But these recollections do offer a bit of hope.

While cancer and radiation disease rates increased precipitously following the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, there were some people who seemed to be immune to the harmful effects of radiation!

One man’s story has is so astounding that it’s been covered by many news and radio outlets in the past. Tsutomu Yamaguchi was walking to work in Hiroshima when the first atomic bomb was dropped only a mile away. He was so close to the impact point that the blast threw him to the ground and inundated his body with ionic radiation. Nevertheless, he survived, only to travel to his hometown of Nagasaki…where he once again was caught in the blast radius of the second atomic bomb.

Despite this horrendous exposure to radiation, Yamaguchi experienced no radiation diseases, had children without any issue, and lived until the ripe age of 93.

This experience is echoed by that of Dr. Tatuichiro Akizuki, his 20 employees, and their 70 patients—all of whom were also in a hospital 1.4km from the Nagasaki bomb drop point. Again, none of them suffered from any acute radiation disease.

So what’s their secret?

Dr. Akizuki had a theory about why he, his colleagues, and his patients all managed to avoid the fate of radiation contamination that was suffered by so many others: all of them consumed generous portions of wakame miso soup every day.

The deeper researchers dig, the stronger the connection between miso consumption and “radiation immunity” seems to be. Now a number of studies have scientifically proven that miso—a food made from fermented soy beans, rice, and salt—is powerfully radioprotective.

One study published in the journal Toxicologic Pathology found that rats given miso before being exposed to ionic radiation were strongly protected from its effects. Their miso diet also suppressed the growth of cancerous tumors—and these radioprotective effects persisted for all but extremely high, acute doses of radiation.[1]

The researchers found that, while all types of miso are radioprotective, those that have been fermented for the longest period of time are the most radioprotective (they tested miso fermented for 3-4 days, for 120 days, and for 180 days, and the 180-day-fermented miso offered the greatest level of radioprotection).

This is an important finding, because it reveals that the key to miso’s incredible radioprotective effects is the bacteria produced during its fermentation. Beneficial bacteria are what make all probiotic foods so amazingly health-promoting—and miso boasts special benefits because it also contains compounds called soy isoflavones, which have also been shown to be radioprotective on their own.[2]

But wait a minute…isn’t soy bad for you?

It is true that soy is an estrogen-mimicking food that can cause worrying hormonal imbalances (especially for women) if consumed regularly. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that most soy is produced as a GMO crop, which ensures that it’s also contaminated with endocrine-disrupting pesticides and all sorts of other toxins.

But fermented soy (the main ingredient in miso) is entirely different. The fermentation process transforms soy into an anti-estrogenic food, which therefore actually balances hormones rather than throwing them out of whack.[3] The world of beneficial bacteria—which we’ve barely even begun to understand—works in wonderful and mysterious ways.

And while the benefits of miso may be a new finding in the world of laboratory science, this healing brew has a long history as a healing food. As we mentioned above, it saved many people in Japan from the deleterious effects of atomic radiation at the end of World War II, and it (along with other macrobiotic foods) was used as a radioprotective measure after the Chernobyl incident, as well.

New studies even suggest that miso and soy isoflavones are ideal for cancer patients undergoing radiation treatment, because they simultaneously protect healthy cells from radiation and increase the damage done to cancer cells.

It will probably be some time before conventional medical science is willing to admit that the intelligence of healing foods can actually trump medical technologies (such as chemotherapy and the corrupt industry that wields it). Nevertheless, you can take advantage of miso and its radioprotection now.

Just make sure to eat the right kind of miso

Before you head out to the closest restaurant that serves miso soup, though, note these words of caution. As we already discussed, the vast majority of soy is GMO. It can be very difficult to find miso that’s been produced only with organic, non-GMO soy, but anything else isn’t worth eating.

Make sure to do your research, and only purchase your miso from a coop, health food store, or trustworthy website that can verify the quality and source of their product.

Once you’ve gotten your ingredients, making miso soup is a cinch. Just mix organic miso powder with water and scallions, and bring the mixture to a boil. Some people like to add an egg, tofu, or seaweed to their soup. If you choose to do so, make sure to use organic eggs, to limit your overall tofu intake (which is almost always made from unfermented soy), and to use organic seaweed or kelp that isn’t sourced from a radiation-contaminated area of the world (many types of seaweed can sequester radioactive compounds, which then make their way into your body when you consume it).

As long as you’re careful with your sourcing, you can rest assured that your delicious, homemade miso soup will offer potent protection against radiation, without any of the negative effects of unfermented soy.

Why Do Most Orca Pregnancies End in Miscarriage? Look Upstream.

Orcas are losing their babies at an unprecedented rate. The solution may lie 400 miles away.

Writing in 1916, conservationist John Muir noted that “there is not a ‘fragment’ in all nature, for every relative fragment of one thing is a full harmonious unit in itself.” A century later, in the Pacific Northwest, land managers, tribal leaders, environmental stewards, lawmakers, and business interests are locked in a fight over which harmonious units and relative fragments can be rearranged to satisfy all parties.

But while they grapple over the details of regulations and policy changes, and the various perceived and demonstrated economic effects any such legislation may have, whales continue to miscarry at an unprecedented rate.

In the salty waters off the coast of Seattle, the region’s orca population is spontaneously miscarrying the majority of its pregnancies, according to a recent study by researchers at the University of Washington, published in PLoS One. By studying the feces of orcas through the use of detection dogs, the researchers tracked the whales’ hormones over time. Their findings were stark: Sixty-nine percent of all detectable orca pregnancies ended with miscarriage; 33 percent of those pregnancies failed in the late stages of gestation or immediate postpartum.

While the temperature of the ocean, boating, and commercial shipping are often looked to as identifiable reasons for orca stress, one of the most important places to look for answers may actually be on land, where the human footprint has choked off the primary food source of the Southern Resident killer whale population—the Chinook salmon.

The Center for Whale Research, which has been surveying Puget Sound killer whales for decades, reports that Chinook make up about 80 percent of the average orca’s diet; each whale must consume between 18 and 25 salmon per day just to retain its energy levels. To feed the entire population of Southern Resident killer whales, the Puget Sound and surrounding waterways must provide at least 1,500 salmon per day.

But since the Pacific Salmon Commission began tracking salmon in 1984, it has noted a 60 percent reduction in the population of Chinook. The commission estimated under half a million were left in the Salish Sea in 2010—less than a year’s supply of fish for the orca.

While researchers have known for years that the reduction in supply has a direct effect on the area’s killer whale population, the University of Washington study sheds light on a new, previously under-diagnosed problem: It appears that lower numbers of salmon put undue burden on pregnant whales, who need even more of the high-fat, high-protein fish to feed both themselves and their growing babies.

“Low availability of Chinook salmon appears to be an important stressor among these fish-eating whales as well as a significant cause of late pregnancy failure, including unobserved perinatal loss,” the University of Washington researchers note.

Researchers have already noted a decline in orca population—a survey in 2012 found that the Puget Sound pods had posted some of their lowest numbers since the 1970s. Still, the high incidence of miscarriage came as a surprise, largely because observers were unaware the whales had been pregnant at all.

Based on the data collected, researchers concluded that underfed orcas don’t produce the necessary hormones they need to keep themselves and their babies healthy; when the salmon runs arrive late or don’t arrive at all, it’s often too late to carry a calf to term. And the feeding season needs to be both consistent and lengthy, because orcas are typically pregnant for 17 months or more.

Underfed orcas don’t produce the necessary hormones they need to keep themselves and their babies healthy.

But salmon aren’t dying off in a vacuum; human behavior—including construction, housing, pollution, and various industries—is causing the decline.

Massive growth of the Seattle Metropolitan Region—close to 300 new residents per day have moved to the city in the last year alone—is a major contributor to the decline in both orca and salmon populations. Runoff from roads can seriously affect the survival of fish in streams, deforestation increases the temperature of the water, and new development can change the patterns of currents and disturb the nests that salmon rely on to shelter their eggs. Recreation has also led to destruction of habitats—everyone moves to Seattle to go hiking, after all.

There’s still a lot of clean-up to do from earlier days too; Kirt Hughes, the Department of Fish and Wildlife’s statewide salmon and steelhead fishery manager, explains that many chemicals that are dangerous to orcas and are banned in construction are “still making their way into the waterways.” They’re in the vegetation, the rocks, even in the fish that are passed up through the food chain.

The problems for salmon begin much further upstream than Seattle, though. About 470 miles away, in the upper Snake River Basin on the border between Oregon and Idaho, dams at Hells Canyon have, for decades, been keeping salmon from their natural migration patterns.

Part of a larger damming project in the late 1950s and early ’60s, the Hells Canyon dams were initially built to help create inland waterways for shipping and trade. Parts of the Midwest—Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and beyond—needed quicker, more reliable access to the ports in cities like Seattle and Portland to trade and import timber, grain, textiles, and other bulk commodities.

In the age of interstates and air cargo, that feature has largely been rendered obsolete. The dams generate a modest amount of power for the surrounding areas, which is generally touted as the reason for keeping them in place. However, amid Idaho’s solar boom—which promises to generate more efficient, less detrimental power in larger volumes—the dams are even less necessary, conservationists argue, particularly when their impact on salmon and orcas is so profound.

“We do have one single situation where we have a lethal corridor created by four dams,” says long-time Sierra Club organizer Bill Arthur. “If we removed these four dams … it would go a huge distance in addressing the fundamental problem of restoring Snake River salmon runs.”

There has been substantial resistance from lawmakers to get rid of the dams. Much of the argument for keeping the dams centers around the hydropower they create and the economic driver that they’re perceived to be. But Hughes says that salmon and whales are a much more powerful money-maker for the state.

Though orca observers and environmental activists agree that dams are lethal for salmon, the role of dams in salmon die-off and, as a result, orca health, remains up for debate in some circles. Opponents of dam removal argue that the salmon population was plummeting before the dams were put in place, and that other factors—like tribal behavior and conservation efforts—are truly to blame. Even many residents of the area surrounding the Snake River would prefer to see the dams stay in place, if only because they believe that salmon protections go too far and represent government overreach.

Regardless of how most Northwest residents view salmon protections and regulations, they generally do agree that salmon are good and necessary for the state. In addition to helping reduce the number of orca miscarriages, elevating and sustaining the salmon population could also increase the number of fishing licenses the state grants, in turn bolstering revenue and increasing lucrative commercial and tourism dollars that could be used for future conservation efforts.

Back down the river on the shores of Seattle, local environmentalists and municipalities alike are looking for new ways to protect both the salmon and the whales. The $3 billion transit expansion that voters passed last year was expressly messaged as a way to reduce groundwater pollution, and King County Metro, the region’s transit authority, launched advertisements promising that “salmon love this bus.” Seattle Public Utilities’ “Salmon Friendly” program is designed to protect local waterways—and residents are encouraged to stencil their local storm drain with a reminder that wastewater affects fish. Hearing the call to reduce crowding on the mountains, the county has also rolled out new public transit options for hikers.

But it’s an uphill battle. In addition to combating the decades-long decline, area conservationists are also dealing with unforced errors, like a massive failure at a local waste management plant earlier this year that sent untreated sewage straight into Puget Sound, continue to happen. And a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration report released in 2016 found that local salmon were riddled with chemicals and pharmaceuticals—proof that, despite the best efforts of local governments and activists, there are a lot of seemingly unrelated social issues affecting fish and whales. Opioid addiction is bad for groundwater. Poverty is bad for groundwater. Gridlock is bad for groundwater.

There are numerous campaigns and non-profits working to clean up the waterways and reduce the myriad issues that cause declines in both salmon and orcas, but it’s difficult to reduce a footprint that’s also ready-made. As long as people keep moving to Seattle for the beauty of it—for the hiking, the boating, and, yes, even the fishing—there will continue to be both up- and downstream affects on the region’s fauna, particularly those that rely on natural resources.

Russia to help Japan clean up Fukushima disaster – Putin

By year-end, Russia and Japan will start joint efforts to clean up after the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant. Russian President Vladimir Putin made the announcement after talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Vladivostok.

Russia to help Japan clean up Fukushima disaster – Putin

The countries’ “cooperation in the sphere of the peaceful atom has been growing, and we expect that by the end of the year we will announce joint projects to eliminate the consequences of the Fukushima meltdown,” Putin said on Thursday at the Eastern Economic Forum.

During the talks, the two leaders agreed to exchange information on experiments in getting rid of nuclear waste.

Earlier in the day, the deputy head of Russia’s Rosatom Kirill Komarov said the corporation is offering its services to Japan to assist in shutting down the Fukushima reactors.

Russian scientists have experience tackling nuclear meltdowns after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, the worst on record.

The accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant occurred on March 11, 2011, and became one of the largest nuclear meltdowns in history. A nine magnitude earthquake struck Japan, triggering a deadly tsunami. Flooding then caused a cooling system failure, which led to a meltdown in three reactors.

Officials say the decommissioning of the wrecked Fukushima reactors will take several decades, and according to some estimates, the cost could reach $200 billion.

Japan plans to restart 16 out of 45 Fukushima-type reactors, while the others will be mothballed. The country intends to reduce the share of nuclear energy from 29 percent in 2011 to 21-22 percent by 2030.

Fukushima Apocalypse: Here’s How You Are Being Poisoned The Radiation And Subsequent problems Are Not Just in Japan But Now Also America.

The Fukushima nuclear disaster on March 11, 2011, resulted in massive radioactive contamination of the Japanese mainland, as well as brought to the forefront the dangers of worldwide nuclear radiation. Five years later, after-effects of the catastrophic event continue to plague the world, making it the greatest environmental disaster of all time.

Fukushima nuclear plant has been pouring 300 tones of radioactive water every day, since the accident happened 6 years ago! Life is already disappearing on the seas, and soon, our bodies will also be polluted with radiation, that will cause us countless cancers and diseases. Life on Earth is being threatened, and surely, many of us, will have early deaths as a consequence of this radiation. Wake up!

Fukushima’s Unimaginable Radioactivity Crisis Is Only Getting Worse.

We came across a good article thoroughly examining the unbelievable radiation exposure in Fukushima from their nuclear power plant disaster back in 2011. The below article comes from Lew Rockwell’s website, truly a good read to comprehend just how severe the radiation and subsequent problems are not just in Japan but now also America.

Highest Fukushima Radioactivity since 2011 is Producing ‘Unimaginable’ Consequences

As the six anniversary of perhaps the world’s worst nuclear disaster in history (now rivaling Chernobyl) approaches next month, the worst radioactive conditions seen at the Fukushima nuclear power plant since the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami triple core meltdown are now dangerously spewing a record setting 530 sieverts an hour inside the reactor 2 containment vessel. To help put the enormity of this problem into perspective, the previous record was only 73 sieverts per hour. Exposure to just 10 sieverts can kill a human within weeks and levels at just .1 sievert significantly increase the risk of cancer. At the same time that peak radiation levels at Fukushima are observed, US states are also now being hit with extremely high readings, even containing significant amounts of plutonium in recent months. Radioactive plutonium isotopes are known to be among the most deadly poisons on earth. Fukushima experts can only describe this week’s deteriorating situation at the Daiichi nuclear power plant as “unimaginable.”

That said, today’s limited technology to decommission the global killer that’s already destroyed much of the northern Pacific Ocean habitat will take another four decades to complete. At that rate, we all could be radioactively fried. Significantly high levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean within three years. With six straight years of ongoing nonstop fuel leakage, Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) still can’t determine the condition nor location of the fuel seepage. In the meantime, leaking melted fuel penetrating the bottom of the vessel reactor has burned a one square meter hole into the metal grating that’s now ready to collapse. Holes in other sections were also found. Photo images reveal below the reactor containment wall dark lumpy matter believed to be the melted uranium fuel rods.

Specially made, remote controlled robots designed to probe and assess underwater conditions around the reactors rapidly crumble and shut down due to the high toxic radioactive levels. Yet TEPCO is planning to insert another robot directly inside the reactor itself to examine conditions inside the containment vessel. If the water around it is so radioactive it destroys the robot, good luck on getting a reading of contamination inside the vessel.

The blind are leading the blind as never before have humans dealt with the enormity of this kind of problem. For six long years, authorities have been clueless on how to stop the meltdown leakage and radioactive poisoning from spreading further, eventually to all corners of the earth. Literally, hundreds if not thousands of tons of radioactive water have been leaking out daily into the Pacific Ocean (an estimated 400 from one account). And pretty much throughout the near six years, both TEPCO and the Japanese government have consistently lied to cover up the severity of the damage and danger to human health.

Because they’ve never encountered a disaster of this sheer magnitude ever before, doctors also have no idea how to accurately measure and assess the health hazards that the soaring levels of radioactivity currently pose for the thousands of workers at the plant much less the severe threat to the nearby local populations.

But does this colossal, uncontrollable crisis stop greedy nuclear power companies and nations from continuing to build more disasters waiting to happen in our already very iffy future? Not a bit. America currently fuels 19% of our nation’s electricity needs from nuclear-powered energy and wants to significantly raise that share. Construction of four more power plants are due for completion by 2021, adding to the 100 that are already operational with 24 more application proposals filed since 2007 slated for future construction. Accepting the unfathomably enormous, untold, virtually irreversible environmental damage to life on this planet that grows more devastating by the day at Fukushima now for the last half dozen years, it’s downright criminal to even think of building yet more nuclear power facilities anywhere on this already toxic saturated planet. Yet nuke advocates are constantly publishing new studies with one as recently as last month claiming nuclear power is safer than ever. And it’s that kind of disinformation propaganda that provides the impetus for countries like the US as the world’s largest nuclear energy producer to blindly continue its nuclear commitment.

And our current president is as much an aficionado as the Bush-Cheney duo on both nukes for energy as well as war proposing a nuclear arms race over and above the $1 trillion already committed to nuclear upgrade. Trump’s also committed to extracting every last drop of oil and gas from this over drilled and parched earth. After all, Trump the anti-globalist candidate must keep the tradition alive. Once in the White House, every American puppet president follows the globalist edict to continue raping and pillaging our earth.

A bogus excuse commonly used to justify the “nuclear renaissance” in recent years is the so-called man made greenhouse gases falsely linked to global warming and climate change that make nuclear development especially environmentally friendlier, so say two MIT authors touting their 2009 paper “The Growth of Nuclear Power: Drivers and Constraints,” published two years before the Fukushima debacle, which of course totally obliterates their already flaky argument. The paper goes on to promote the massive expansion plans for nuclear development in China, India, South Korea, Japan and Russia (again Fukushima and Chernobyl offer powerful sobering counterpoints). Even in post-Fukushima 2013, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) projected a high-end expectation of near doubled worldwide growth at a rate of 94% in the coming years up to 2030. Thus, despite this unfixable, ongoing catastrophe at Fukushima, numerous countries are still willing to recklessly plunge our world into yet more irreparable, perhaps to extinction level harm of gargantuan proportion that we destructive human have no solution to even begin handling. It’s both insane and suicidal!

As if we haven’t done enough to kill off life on this planet, let’s take a brief look at the undeniable empirical damage. Despite the fortunate fate that winds blew 80% of the radioactivity in the first few days following the March 2011 meltdown due east out further into the Pacific, the winds then changed blowing plumes of toxic nuclear particles both northwest to Japan and south to Tokyo. In the immediate aftermath, all life forms in the Fukushima area underwent harmful exposure to gamma rays beaming up from the ground as well as breathing into the lungs and ingested through the food chain. But don’t think for a minute that North America being thousands of miles away wasn’t affected. Within just days after the accident independent scientist, Dr. Leuren Moret determined that the entire US Pacific Coast and western Canada inland all the way to the Midwest reached as high of radiation levels as Japan. And ever since March 2011 people in the northern hemisphere have been continually exposed and bombarded with large dangerous doses of radiation.

Again, because of the massive conspiratorial cover-up by the Japanese government in criminal collusion with the IAEA and WHO as well as the US government, the truth of how sick and how many victims have actually died from Fukushima is murky at best and virtually impossible to definitively ascertain. On top of that, on behalf of the globalists, Japanese Prime Minister Abe ensured that a secrecy law was passed to further squelch the truth from the public.

But despite the criminality of the international cabal government, here’s what we do know. Three times the amount of gasses like xenon, argon, and krypton were released at Fukushima than at Chernobyl, inhaled and absorbed in the fatty tissues of the body, typically causing lung cancer as well as cancer in various other organs. But as far as the total radiation amount released into the ocean, one study estimated that up to 100 times more escaped at Fukushima than Chernobyl although an estimated equal amount of cesium came out of Fukushima as Chernobyl. But due to the higher population density in Japan, even with roughly similar morbidity and mortality rates, the human damage of Fukushima in the coming decades stands to be much higher. In the earliest reports released to the public, thyroid cancer has been detected in 75 children after the Fukushima accident but written off due to the 2-3 year incubation period. Within two years after the 2011 meltdown, a spike in damaged thyroids amongst 40% of the Fukushima children was diagnosed from iodine-131 exposure.

Despite waste management technology attempting to filter out isotopes from the contaminated water around the reactors prior to eventual release into the ocean, tritium cannot be eliminated and remains radioactive for 120 years. And tritium is known to cause brain tumors, congenital malformations, and numerous other cancers. Fish in the nearby ocean waters have measured 12,400 Bc/K radioactive levels when the Japanese limit in food is only 100 Bc/K. Even freshwater fish in nearby rivers carry 2657 Bc/K. TEPCO had lied about strontium-90 levels, recently admitting that nearby well water contains five times the earlier reported amounts – 5 million Bc/liter. There’s conjecture that this critical information may have been purposely withheld in order to secure Tokyo as the 2020 site for the summer Olympic Games. Moreover, unbeknownst to the public, radioactive wastes are being quietly moved about to different locations all over Japan for incineration. And the ashes are being dumped in Tokyo Bay where the Olympic athletes will be swimming. BBC reported that radiation levels around Fukushima are 18 times higher than previously covered.

In the meantime, the ground and water around the reactor complex is so unstable, sitting in liquefied mud on a fault line no less, that its extreme vulnerability to another magnitude 7 or higher earthquake would release enough toxic radioactivity (at least 10 times the Chernobyl cesium level) to permanently pollute all of Japan and much of the northern hemisphere – certain to kill off millions of humans. Rupture of the many radioactive water tanks would also result. On November 22, 2016, a 7.4 earthquake struck northeastern Japan which well may have contributed to the current unstable situation of more leakage and record level radiation.

The health of plant workers – some having been formerly homeless recruited by Yakuza organized crime – is not closely monitored. They’re being treated as sacrificial expendables and guinea pigs, as is the entire Japanese population. 13% of Japan’s mainland containing 10 million of its citizens is hopelessly contaminated for thousands of years. As the most vulnerable segment of the population at 10 to 20 times more sensitive, Japanese children at an alarming rate are becoming obese as a result of being kept indoors, forced to remain artificially inactive.

Moreover, the Japanese people are eating contaminated food. But as of 2014 contaminated rice mixed in with other rice has been deemed acceptable for export and human consumption all over the world. A March 2014 US FDA update gave the green light to eating food products from Japan, claiming non-harmful levels of radiation. Of course, little do authorities advertise that since Fukushima, they’ve been conveniently upping the levels of what’s considered unhealthy to maintain globalized business as usual. For instance, before the nuclear accident, the limit danger was set at 1 mS per year but now it’s 20, the equivalent to 1000 chest X-rays a year. The nuclear worker limit is now 50 mS. Meanwhile, Japanese insects and birds are largely deformed and sterile with their generational mutations acting as canaries in the coal mine to demonstrate what humans are now facing. The bottom line is Fukushima remains an apocalyptic time bomb, a nightmare just waiting sooner than later to happen to the rest of us on the planet.

Marine and wildlife are dying by the millions. Polar bears, seals, and walruses have severe fur loss and open sores with inordinately high death rates. This week alone a record high number of dead whales are washing up along the Hawaiian shores as well as other islands in Pacific Asia. So has the sockeye salmon population. Pacific fish are bleeding from their gills, bellies, and eyeballs. Virtually every sample of tested Bluefin tuna are now carrying toxic levels of radiation. For the last couple years, the West Coast has been struck by waves of highly radioactive debris. The Japan nuclear disaster has turned the California beaches into a near dead zone, devoid of the teeming marine life present just a few years earlier.

With the ongoing constant leakage at Fukushima, the Pacific waters will be doubling in radioactivity over the next 5 to 10 years. Radio nuclides began arriving at the western shores in early 2014. Recently measured cesium-137 levels are now off the charts in plankton from Hawaii to the West Coast. Likewise, it’s been discovered that fish sold from Japan also contain these same dangerously high cesium levels. Rates of 91-100% of marine life are toxically contaminated in samples of halibut, sardines, tuna, eel, anchovies, carp, shark, monkfish and seaweed. Over the last four decades, populations of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish have on average plummeted by half. And with massive daily animal die-offs of all kinds the global norm, we’re already well into the earth’s six mass life extinction.

Because the commercial fishing industry continues harvesting sea life from contaminated waters and millions if not billions of humans continue consuming fish and seafood as a regular food staple, countless numbers of people are and will be dying from increasing cancer rates and other terminal diseases.


This is an apocalyptic eventThis is something that could contaminate the entire Pacific Ocean. It is extremely serious. The reality is that Tokyo Electric does not know what is happening and does not know how to control what is going on. Our entire planet is at risk here.”

“Iodine-131 can be ingested into the thyroid, where it emits beta particles (electrons) that damage tissue. A plague of damaged thyroids has already been reported among as many as 40% of the children in the Fukushima area. That percentage can only go higher. In developing youngsters, it can stunt both physical and mental growth. Among adults it causes a very wide range of ancillary ailments, including cancer.”

“…The worst case scenario could play out in death to billions of people. A true apocalypse… A weather event, power outage, earthquake, tsunami, cooling system failure, or explosion and fire in any way, shape, or form, at any location on the Fukushima site, could cascade into an event of that magnitude as well.”

Japan Nuclear Cartel Admits (Today) Plutonium Release, Enough to Kill 847,143 Humans

NUKE PRO: Exposing Truth Anti-Nuclear Information and Resources, and Disaster Preparation Planning: http://nukeprofessional.blogspot.com/ On just May 4, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists published an article about the closing of the failed Monju reactor in Japan.     It only operated for less than 5% of it’s existance, plagued with problems.      They spent $9B for a failure

Then on May 7, 2017 Monju announces that 300 grams of Plutonium 239 “flew out” of a bag.

Image result for Plutonium

This may not sound like much, but it only takes 350 micrograms of Plutonium to pretty much for sure, kill you, WITHIN A FEW YEARS.  Some people say as little as 1 microgram COULD kill you, and that is true, just not likely to kill you that fast.

So 300 grams is 300,000,000 micrograms.    Divide that by 350 micrograms/sure death and you get

847,143 Potential “Almost For Sure Kill You Quickly” Human Deaths

Michio KaKu Fukushima The end of Humanity

We know it’s bad – but how bad?

10 days ago from this writing, the sardine fishery of British Columbia, Canada was reported to have “inexplicably” collapsed.

Simply no sardines were caught and the fleet went home, empty-handed. Starfish and seal populations in that region are also collapsing.

We’ve heard now about three complete meltdowns that are occurring at the afflicted power plant at Fukushima – but we’ve never heard about the fact that there are actually 6 reactors at the site!

We know that this week, 2 separate typhoons (the term for hurricanes in the western Pacific) will be colliding exactly over Fukushima this week, all the better to disperse the unfathomable tonnage of hot particles into the Pacific Ocean Basin, set to do further ruin to the already-collapsing ecosystems throughout this immense area.

Were there to be a fire spread, due to the hundreds of unsecured nuclear fuel rods at the plant today, a chain reaction could occur and “The Northern Hemisphere could easily be facing an extreme fallout situation, where everybody would have to shelter indoors for several months or more,” according to Christina Consolo, Founder of Nuked Radio.

When interviewed by Russia Today, Consolo’s assessment was that the worst case scenario could play out into the deaths of “billions of people. A true apocalypse.”

 

Expert: Plutonium-241 from Fukushima nearly 70,000 times more than atomic bomb fallout in Japan — Gov’t Labs: Large areas of oceans contaminated by plutonium from events such as Fukushima; Build-up in biosphere expected; Considerable hazard to humans — Officials: Molten fuel now ‘particle-like’, contains ‘special’ nuclear materials.

The attempted cover up of the severity of the Fukushima disaster is nothing new.

Governments have been covering up nuclear meltdowns for 50 years, and the basic design for nuclear reactors was not chosen for safety, but because it worked on Navy submarines … and produced plutonium for the military.

Nuclear Expert: We found ‘mystery’ Fukushima plutonium; Why it’s there is yet to be understood, this was not expected — US Gov’t Expert: I don’t want to go down the rabbit hole too far… There’s speculation about plutonium fuel and about what other fuel they were using.

(Indeed, the government’s response to every crisis appears to be to try to cover it up; and see this.)
Today, Yomiuri Shinbun reports (Google translation) that the U.S. knew within days that Fukushima had melted down:

The US … already knew about the unusually high temperature of the reactors from the Global Hawk data, and determined that “the fuel has already melted”.

The US high-ranking officials wanted to evacuate the US citizens [Tokyo] but the local officials including Maher objected, as “it would severely undermine the US-Japan alliance”

In this article by Green Road Journal, they claim that the mass media, for the most part, is reporting a pro nuclear industry view.

After, they say, six years of research, the authors put forward their pessimistic view:
Fukushima has released 257 Tons Of Heavy Metal Radioactive Poisons; 429 Lethal Radiation Doses Chasing Each Person on the Planet (Dr. Paolo Scamp), and that it is 12,000 times worse than Chernobyl.

Mass die offs in ocean started in 2011, but the situation is getting worse.

Some believe Tokyo is not safe to live in, and should be evacuated, and that the radiation is bioconcentrating up the food chain to humans.

There is an increase in frequency of mutations, being found in trees, insects, plants, birds, animals — and  the entire western coastline of Pacific ocean is basically sterilized, with few species remaining.

The company has admitted that it did not act properly during the disaster, confessing in February that it announced the nuclear meltdowns far too late.

It also stated in a 2012 report that it downplayed safety risks caused by the incident, out of fear that additional measures would lead to a shutdown of the plant and further fuel public anxiety and anti-nuclear campaigns.

 

Despite the ongoing problems encountered following the meltdowns, TEPCO has set 2020 as the goal for ending the plant’s water problem – an aim which critics say is far too optimistic.

The problem of water contamination is just one of many surrounding the dismantling and containing of the Fukushima plant debris which is estimated to take at least 40 years.

Fukushima Radiation Has Contaminated The Entire Pacific Ocean – And It’s Going To Get Worse

The nuclear disaster has contaminated the world’s largest ocean in only five years and it’s still leaking 300 tons of radioactive waste every day.

What was the most dangerous nuclear disaster in world history? Most people would say the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, but they’d be wrong. In 2011, an earthquake, believed to be an aftershock of the 2010 earthquake in Chile, created a tsunami that caused a meltdown at the TEPCO nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. Three nuclear reactors melted down and what happened next was the largest release of radiation into the water in the history of the world. Over the next three months, radioactive chemicals, some in even greater quantities than Chernobyl, leaked into the Pacific Ocean. However, the numbers may actually be much higher as Japanese official estimates have been proven by several scientists to be flawed in recent years.

If that weren’t bad enough, Fukushima continues to leak an astounding 300 tons of radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean every day. It will continue do so indefinitely as the source of the leak cannot be sealed as it is inaccessible to both humans and robots due to extremely high temperatures.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Fukushima has contaminated the entire Pacific Ocean in just five years. This could easily be the worst environmental disaster in human history and it is almost never talked about by politicians, establishment scientists, or the news. It is interesting to note that TEPCO is a subsidiary of General Electric (also known as GE), one of the largest companies in the world, which has considerable control over numerous news corporations and politicians alike. Could this possibly explain the lack of news coverage Fukushima has received in the last five years? There is also evidence that GE knew about the poor condition of the Fukushima reactors for decades and did nothing. This led 1,400 Japanese citizens to sue GE for their role in the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Even if we can’t see the radiation itself, some parts of North America’s western coast have been feeling the effects for years. Not long after Fukushima, fish in Canada began bleeding from their gills, mouths, and eyeballs. This “disease” has been ignored by the government and has decimated native fish populations, including the North Pacific herring. Elsewhere in Western Canada, independent scientists have measured a 300% increase in the level of radiation. According to them, the amount of radiation in the Pacific Ocean is increasing every year. Why is this being ignored by the mainstream media? It might have something to do with the fact that the US and Canadian governments have banned their citizens from talking about Fukushima so “people don’t panic.”

Further south in Oregon, USA, starfish began losing legs and then disintegrating entirely when Fukushima radiation arrived there in 2013. Now, they are dying in record amounts, putting the entire oceanic ecosystem in that area at risk. However, government officials say Fukushima is not to blame even though radiation in Oregon tuna tripled after Fukushima. In 2014, radiation on California beaches increased by 500 percent. In response, government officials said that the radiation was coming from a mysterious “unknown” source and was nothing to worry about.

However, Fukushima is having a bigger impact than just the West coast of North America. Scientists are now saying that the Pacific Ocean is already radioactive and is currently at least 5-10 times more radioactive than when the US government dropped numerous nuclear bombs in the Pacific during and after World War II. If we don’t start talking about Fukushima soon, we could all be in for a very unpleasant surprise.
