Media Ignores Fukushima Fire!!

May 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

The Japan – Fukushima incident is far from getting over and the media isn’t covering up any information about it.

Fukushima is now almost entirely off the corporate media radar screen. If the photos below are accurate, the situation at the plant is out of control and still emitting dangerous levels of radiation. There is no mention of the fire or a possible explosion at the plant by the corporate media.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

…you really have to wonder why the MSM isn’t paying any real attention. No follow-ups. No Special Reports.
How bad is this truly going to be when all is said and done?
Perhaps we’ll never know. Even more likely, they probably don’t want us to know.

Nuclear Disaster at the Mississippi and MSM say nothing!!!!

May 10, 2011 § 1 Comment

(NaturalNews) Workers at the Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant in Port Gibson, Miss., last Thursday released a large amount of radioactive tritium directly into the Mississippi River, according to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and experts are currently trying to sort out the situation. An investigation is currently underway to determine why the tritium was even present in standing water found in an abandoned unit of the plant, as well as how much of this dangerous nuclear byproduct ended up getting dumped into the river. Many also want to know why workers released the toxic tritium before conducting proper tests.

The MississippiNatchez Democratreports that crews first discovered the radioactive water in the plant’s Unit 2 turbine building after heavy rains began hitting the area last week. Unit 2 was a partially-constructed, abandoned structure that should not have contained any radioactive materials, let alone tritium, which is commonly used to manufacture nuclear weapons and test atomic bombs (http://www.nirs.org/radiation/triti…).

According to reports, alarms began to go off as workers were releasing the radioactive storm water into the river, which engaged the stop flow on the release pump. Neither NRC nor plant officials know how much tritium was released into the river during this release.

“Although concentrations of tritium exceeded EPA drinking water limits, the release should not represent a hazard to public health because of its dilution in the river,” insisted Lara Uselding, public affairs officer at NRC Region IV, to reporters.

Such a statement, of course, is a health concern because precise levels of released tritium are unknown. Just because the radioactive substance has been diluted does not necessarily mean it is harmless, nor does it verify the substance’s source or whether or not it is still being unknowingly released. Without this crucial information, there is no telling where else tritium might be lurking around the plant and river.

A beta radioactive substance, tritium bombards cells and damages DNA when inhaled or swallowed, and can persist in the body for more than ten years upon exposure. Its perpetual effect on cells can lead to all sorts of serious diseases, including, but not limited to, gene mutations, birth defects, and cancer.

Tritium can prove to be exceptionally hazardous when introduced into the largest river in North America, as countless people will be exposed eventually. That Wikipedia article lists 4 sources for the health risks of tritium that are very credible and extremely well documented/researched. Please give them a look if you don’t already know about this stuff.

So WHY is the MSM ignoring our very own nuclear disaster in Mississippi USA? (Also LA because the power plant is on the border with that other state as well) ??

OH I forgot. Because the truth sucks and it makes people not want to play along with this SICK and DISGUSTING joke of a society we have eh?

Go buy your garbage and watch your TV and forget about it right?

NOT ME! I am royally pissed.

I am just FED UP with the negligence of the nuclear industry and the sad fact that ONE SIMPLE MISTAKE can create hundreds of years of deadly pollution. It’s total BS and NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!

Sorry my OP is not perfect, but I will add more information as I uncover it. Any help is appreciated. I can’t find anything about this on ATS, please don’t ignore it folks.

Another Blow on Japan!!

April 7, 2011 § 2 Comments

The situation in Japan worsens by the minute. A doctor warns of “emotional fallout” after the 7.1 quake in Japan for children following repeated aftershocks and problems at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant (click here to see it). These guys have every right to be traumatized and i totally agree. No one can actually tell or confirm whether Nature is behind the recent earthquakes, a 9.0 and a 7.1 magnitude or is it possible that these natural disasters are “controlled” ( HAARP) by a set of people.

There were several quake predictions after the first 9.0 blow in Japan about a future Californian quake but nothing has happened till present. However what I noticed is the quake in Japan wasn’t predicted.

Has prediction become a forum for some people to get a global watch and name or what? As long as there isn’t enough empirical evidence a prediction is a useless as an empty bluff.

By clicking here, you can check out recent earthquakes from 8-30 day surveys from USGS and see what actually goes-on on Earth.

Several questions are obviously going to generate since humans must always seek answers to abstract things. Looking at the situation, is it possible that these events could be signs of the so much talk about the 2012 Apocalypse? Or could it just be the work of radio active frequencies generated somewhere in Alaska by HAARP? What ever the situation, if death is going to be the common for all next year 2012, then so be it. But if nothing happens… (lol) It’ll make an interesting event to blog about.

The Illuminati Card Game – Nuclear Accident

Take a look-see then believe if you wanna. But this particular Card I can say and see was played on Japan. Click here to see for yourself. Be sure to read the Notes beneath the Card Image.

This game came out in 1995 and seems to predict a lot of events that have already happened, like 9/11.

These guys actually throw a die and play a card game on world-wide destruction!!!!! Putting the fate of nations in a Card??? How much worse can this get???

Before watching the Video below, be sure to understand what HAARP is all about and it’s potentials. If you haven’t please click here.

The video is an extract from the movie – The Core (2003). Note that entertainment, not matter its form be it Music, Movies, Shows, what ever, have a purpose and they are produced in a well controlled environment. The each have meanings which the pass on. But because they are just seen as entertainment, our subconscious mind doesn’t register these meanings because we believe they are just movies and talking about Witchcraft out of the Harry Potter series will be seen as insane because a greater bulk of people will see it as just “a movie”.

If you’ve already watched this movie, i’ll say you are at an advantage because you’ll get to see what you didn’t notice. After watching this, will you give the 8.9 Earthquake on Japan a second thought? As a means to take out their main source energy, their Nuclear Power plants? Well they actually did succeed in taking out some and repeating the World War 2 incident on Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the A-Bomb by the U.S again.

Food For Thought – Can you explain why Birds and Fish die in BULK at times? Remember that these creatures live in mediums of nature, Atmosphere and Water.

Nuclear crisis recalls painful memories in Hiroshima!!

Oi Nuclear Power Plant Unit 3, Unit 4. Locatio...

Osaka (CNN) — In Hiroshima, recent images of razed villages and burning shells of buildings in Japan‘s quake-damaged northeast are recalling painful memories of a time sixty-five years ago when an atomic bomb created similar effects in their town.

But it is the less visual aspect of this disaster the threat of nuclear fallout that has activists in Hiroshima sounding the call for a change in Japan’s approach to its supply of electricity.

“It’s like the third atomic bomb attack on Japan,” said Keijiro Matsushima, an 82-year-old survivor of the atomic bombing at Hiroshima. “But this time, we made it ourselves.”

Japan has 54 nuclear power plants nationwide, and about one-third of its electricity comes from nuclear energy. When many of these plants were built, they were designed to be in operation for thirty years, but as Japanese power companies face increasing public resistance to the construction of new plants, these plants will be operating for forty to fifty years, says Akira Tashiro.

Tashiro, a Hiroshima newspaper journalist, has specialized in stories related to nuclear energy and the effects of radiation for over 30 years. His employer, The Chugoku Shimbun, actively advocates for the elimination of nuclear weapons and has a tradition of reports that focus on issues related to nuclear power.

“This might be a good turning point,” Tashiro said about the concern over damaged nuclear plants in northeastern Japan. Tashiro is calling for the Japanese government to increase their investment in research of renewable energy resources.

“I hope Hiroshima will take a lead on this because of our own experience with the atomic bomb,” he said.

Matsushima, the bomb survivor, is worried about the people exposed to the radiation in recent days, but doesn’t see long-term viable alternatives to nuclear energy. “Unfortunately, this is a small country. Japan doesn’t have much energy. It may be a necessary evil.”

Shoji Kihara, of the Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center, believes the Japanese government is not being fully forthcoming with information about the risks facing people close to the affected nuclear plants.

“Survivors of the atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki have lived their whole lives worrying about their health, and these people will have to live the same way.” Kihara’s parents and siblings are survivors of the atomic bomb.

Kihara has written a letter to the Chugoku Power Company and asked them to suspend their plans to build a new nuclear power plant at Kaminoseki, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Hiroshima. He has written many letters to the power company over the years about this project, but he says he is optimistic that this will be his last.

Matsushima also believes this crisis will prove a turning point for the country as a whole. “Perhaps Japan can’t get along without nuclear power stations in the future. But Japanese power companies will have a harder time building new nuclear power plants from now on.”

More than 10,000 feared dead in Japan quake

An injured girl is brought to a Japanese Red Cross hospital after being evacuated from the area hit by tsunami in Ishinomaki March 13, 2011. Japan faced a growing humanitarian crisis on Sunday after its devastating earthquake and tsunami left millions of people without water, electricity, homes or heat.

FUKUSHIMA, Japan – Japan battled on Monday to prevent a nuclear catastrophe and to care for millions of people without power or water in its worst crisis since the Second World War, after a massive earthquake and tsunami that are feared to have killed more than 10,000 people.

A badly wounded nation has seen whole villages and towns wiped off the map by a wall of water, leaving in its wake an international humanitarian effort of epic proportions.

A grim-faced Prime Minister Naoto Kan said the world’s third biggest economy faced rolling blackouts as it reopens for business on Monday, while officials confirmed three nuclear reactors were at risk of overheating, raising fears of an uncontrolled radiation leak.

“The earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear incident have been the biggest crisis Japan has encountered in the 65 years since the end of World War Two,” Mr. Kan told a news conference.

“We’re under scrutiny on whether we, the Japanese people, can overcome this crisis.”

As he spoke, officials worked desperately to stop fuel rods in the damaged reactors from overheating. If they fail, the containers that house the core could melt, or even explode, releasing radioactive material into the atmosphere.

Broadcaster NHK, quoting a police official, said more than 10,000 people may have been killed as the wall of water triggered by Friday’s 8.9-magnitude quake surged across the coastline, reducing whole towns to rubble.

“I would like to believe that there still are survivors,” said Masaru Kudo, a soldier dispatched to Rikuzentakata, a nearly flattened town of 24,500 people in far-northern Iwate prefecture.

Kyodo news agency said 80,000 people had been evacuated from a 20-km (12-mile) radius around a stricken nuclear plant, joining more than 450,000 other evacuees from quake and tsunami-hit areas in the northeast of the main island Honshu.

Almost 2 million households were without power in the freezing north, the government said. There were about 1.4 million without running water.

“I am looking for my parents and my older brother,” Yuko Abe, 54, said in tears at an emergency centre in Rikuzentakata.

“Seeing the way the area is, I thought that perhaps they did not make it. I also cannot tell my siblings that live away that I am safe, as mobile phones and telephones are not working.”

NUCLEAR CRISIS

The most urgent crisis centres on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, where all three reactors were threatening to overheat, and where authorities said they had been forced to vent radioactive steam into the air to relieve reactor pressure.

The complex, 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo, was rocked by an explosion on Saturday, which blew the roof off a reactor building. The government did not rule out further blasts there but said this would not necessarily damage the reactor vessels.

Authorities have poured sea water in all three of the complex’s reactor to cool them down.

Nuclear expert Mark Hibbs of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said the authorities appeared to be having some success in their efforts to avert a bigger disaster, but added the situation was still “touch and go”.

“Injection of sea water into a core is an extreme measure,” he said. “this is not according to the book.”

The complex, run by Tokyo Electric Power Co , is the biggest nuclear concern but not the only one: on Monday, the UN nuclear watchdog said Japanese authorities had notified it of an emergency at another plant further north, at Onagawa.

But Japan’s nuclear safety agency denied problems at the Onagawa plant, run by Tohoku Electric Power Co , noting that radioactive releases from the Fukushima Daiichi complex had been detected at Onagawa, but that these were within safe levels at a tiny fraction of the radiation received in an x-ray.

Shortly later, a cooling-system problem was reported at another nuclear plant closer to Tokyo, in Ibaraki prefecture.

A Japanese official said 22 people have been confirmed to have suffered radiation contamination and up to 190 may have been exposed. Workers in protective clothing used handheld scanners to check people arriving at evacuation centres.

“NOT ANOTHER CHERNOBYL”

The nuclear accident, the worst since Chernobyl in Soviet Ukraine in 1986, sparked criticism that authorities were ill-prepared for such a massive quake and the threat that could pose to the country’s nuclear power industry.

Prime Minister Kan sought to allay radiation fears:

“Radiation has been released in the air, but there are no reports that a large amount was released,” Jiji news agency quoted him as saying. “This is fundamentally different from the Chernobyl accident.”

Nevertheless, France recommended its citizens leave the Tokyo region, citing the risk of further earthquakes and uncertainty about the nuclear plants.

Mr. Kan said food, water and other necessities such as blankets were being delivered by vehicles but because of damage to roads, authorities were considering air and sea transport. He also said the government was preparing to double the number of troops mobilised to 100,000.

Thousands spent another freezing night huddled in blankets over heaters in emergency shelters along the northeastern coast, a scene of devastation after the quake sent a 10-metre (33-foot) wave surging through towns and cities in the Miyagi region, including its main coastal city of Sendai.

There were also fears another powerful quake could strike, with Japan’s Meteorological Agency saying there was a 70 percent chance of an aftershock with a magnitude of 7.0 or greater in the three days from 10 a.m. (0100 GMT) on Sunday.

Aftershocks in the 5 to 6 magnitude range have shaken the ground repeatedly since Friday’s huge quake.

ECONOMIC IMPACT

Already saddled with debts twice the size of its US$5-trillion economy and threatened with credit downgrades, the government is discussing a temporary tax rise to fund relief work.

Analysts expect the economy to suffer a hit in the short-term, then get a boost from reconstruction activity.

“When we talk about natural disasters, we tend to see an initial sharp drop in production… then you tend to have a V-shaped rebound. But initially everyone underestimates the damage,” said Michala Marcussen, head of global economics at Societe Generale.

Ratings agency Moody’s said on Sunday the fiscal impact of the earthquake would be temporary and have a limited play on whether it would downgrade Japan’s sovereign debt.

Risk modelling company AIR Worldwide said insured losses from the earthquake could reach nearly US$35-billion.

The Bank of Japan is expected to pledge on Monday to supply as much money as needed to prevent the disaster from destabilising markets and its banking system.

It is also expected to signal its readiness to ease monetary policy further if the damage from the worst quake since records began in Japan 140 years ago threatens a fragile economic recovery.

The earthquake was the fifth most powerful to hit the world in the past century. It surpassed the Great Kanto quake of Sept. 1, 1923, which had a magnitude of 7.9 and killed more than 140,000 people in the Tokyo area.

The 1995 Kobe quake killed 6,000 and caused $100 billion in damage, the most expensive natural disaster in history. Economic damage from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was estimated at about $10 billion.
