Fukushima Nuclear Denial

Remember Fukushima, March 11th 2011 – Many Would Rather You Didn’t….

 

citz_fihn1March 11th 2011: Three years later, marking the Third Anniversary of the Japan tsunami and Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, and still the denial and suppression of information, regarding the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Reactor continues.

 

It is information suppression on a global scale involving bodies such as the International Atomic Energy Agency, [IAEA] formed by the United Nations in 1957, national government bodies, the all-powerful nuclear industry and nuclear based scientists, not to mention, even the media, and others who stand to gain from the existence of nuclear energy.

"Fukushima is an eerie replay of the denial and controversy that began with the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This is the same nuclear denial that also greeted nuclear bomb tests, such as Semipalatinsk in the Kazakhstan, plutonium plant disasters at Windscale in northern England and the nuclear power plant accidents at Three Mile Island in the United States and Chernobyl in what is now Ukraine."

Furthermore, "About a month after the disaster, on April 19, 2011, Japan chose to dramatically increase its official "safe’ radiation exposure levels from 1 mSv [a measure of radiation dose] t o 20 mSv per year–20 times higher than the U.S. exposure limit. This allowed the Japanese government to downplay the dangers of the fallout and avoid evacuation of many badly contaminated areas."

~Yale University Professor Emeritus Charles Perrow in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

"To date no health effects have been reported in any person as a result of radiation exposure from the accident," the IAEA in 2011, a claim it holds to today.  

And a new State Secrets Act sanctioned by the Japanese government now endorses the right to restrict Fukushima reporting- on pain of a 10 year jail sentence.

 "It’s the cancerous mark of a nuclear regime bound to control all knowledge of a lethal global catastrophe now ceaselessly escalating."

~Harvey Wasserman, co-author of Killing Our Own, in a piece entitled Japan’s New Fukushima Fascism.

Fukushima is different because of the sheer extent of disaster; Multiple meltdowns, on-going pollution of a significant chunk of Japan, airborne radioactive fallout conveyed by the winds throughout the world, and colossal amounts of radioactivity disappearing into the Pacific Ocean, flowing with the currents and transported in the systems of the marine life unfortunate enough to consume the nuclear contaminants.

The Medical Implications of Fukushima:

"Every increment of radiation exposure produces an incremental increase in the risk of cancer." 

~ National Council on Radiation Protection.

There have already been disproportionate numbers of thyroid cancer cases suddenly arising in Japan. This is a well-known primary indication of early radioactivity damage to the human body. Likewise damaged thyroid glands in Californian children were determined, in a study by the “Radiation and Public Health Project,” to be directly attributed to radioactive Fukushima fall-out. [Study conducted by Joseph Mangano and Dr Janette Sherman of the above mentioned Project and also Dr Chris Busby]

There is no such thing as a "safe" level of radioactivity. Any amount can kill.

"The Fukushima disaster is not over and will never end. The radioactive fallout which remains toxic for hundreds to thousands of years covers large swaths of Japan will never be "cleaned up’ and will contaminate food, humans and animals virtually forever."

~ Dr Helen Caldicott, a founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility quoted from Nuclear Madness, one of her books on nuclear power.

All Bluefin Tuna Caught In California-Radioactive:

citz_pumping2

In a study by the Stanford University, every Bluefin Tuna arriving from Japan that they caught in Californian waters was without fail, contaminated with radioactive cesium-137, [large scale emissions occurring from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant]:

“The tuna packaged it up [the radiation] and brought it across the world’s largest ocean. We were definitely surprised to see it at all and even more surprised to see it in every one we measured."

~ Daniel Madigan, Study Leader.

Costs and Consequences of the Fukushima Daiichi Disaster:

~ The Environmental Health Policy Institute of Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR)

“Some 800 square kilometres are ‘exclusion’ zones of "abandoned cities, towns, agricultural land, homes and properties, and from which 159,128 people have been evicted."

~ PSR senior scientist Steven Starr. 

"Should the public discover the true health cost of nuclear pollution, a cry would rise from all parts of the world and people would refuse to cooperate passively with their own death."

~ Rosalie Bertell, a Catholic nun and author of No Immediate Danger, referencing “the decades of suppression of the impacts of nuclear power and the reason behind it.”

  1. So scary! Thank you for posting~

  2. The silence on this topic is deafening.
    I suppose most people have forgotten all about it and think it must have been made safe.

    • The silence is indeed deafening. How quickly and easily bipeds forget. Ostriches burying their heads in the sand. They don’t seem to comprehend that one day this thing will come back to bite them – with big, bad grown-up teeth.
      Thank you for padding through. I think the silence on this post will also be pretty deafening but that’s ok. I expected that before I posted it. Bipeds can run from the radioactive truth as much as they wish. But ultimately they cannot hide. Take care my lovely, hugely huggable furry friend :)

  3. God in heaven, Wolfie, what was ‘He’ thinking when he gave us the freedom of will and ability to do this to Planet Earth? What a ‘bloody’ legacy eh? a pensive > xPenx

    • Freedom of will is a two-edged sword. We scream and shout and kick and fight for our “right” to freedom…of everything, but we are oh so quick to forget the great responsibilities that such freedoms carry with them. In this case it is even worse in so far that so many seek to deny us the truth we should be facing up to, and actively encourage us to forget. I am glad that you chose to use your freedom of will to stop by and share your thoughts. IceWolfie hugs my great friend.

  4. Wolfie, it makes me shudder to think of the future, and what legacy we are leaving our Children’s Children to inherit.. The scale of this damage is not going to go away.. Already we have taken the decision not to eat any more Fish out of the Ocean… Tuna I noticed in the supermarkets have been really marked down in prices recently.. And no one seems to be buying as they used to… Tuna migrate from the shores around Japan. And levels of Radiation are now being found on the coastline around the USA..
    I watched a You Tube Video where Frozen Salmon steaks were tested for radiation and they proved to be contaminated.. No wonder Cancers are on the increase around the world.. Its the silent Killer, which will show its impact in 15/20 yrs time on a greater scale than we are witnessing Cancers now..
    I get so frustrated that here in the UK we are still going ahead with Nuclear Power, and yet still have not learned the lessons from tampering with something we have no way of controlling once it goes wrong.. And no way of clearing away the Radioactive waste.. Its tantamount to being suicidal in our ignorance.. .. Yet these are so Called ( Scientists ) who play God with our lives…

    Wolfie this post was yet another amazing Post full of information… Thank you for sharing… I can only pray that Mother Earth sorts us all out before we completely annihilate her …. Love and Blessings.. Sue xoxox

    • Well said Sue :) x

    • Thank you for taking an interest in this evidently highly unpopular subject Sue. The stat’s for this post (not an issue other than what they imply) prove all too well just how much people do not want to have to think about this topic. It is very much a disaster they wish to sweep under the carpet and forget all about. I find the lack of humanity for those most directly affected by it, and the lack of interest in the long term damage to the Earth slightly heartbreaking. It’s lonely too – howling alone in the Land of Wolves…We are poisoning our oceans just as the Book of Revelation in the Bible says we will…signs of the End times. Still, those who wish for the world to forget and believe that everything is fine, and under control with the Fukushima Daiichi N-Plant will no doubt be having a chilled out, easy going time, relaxing happily without the need to make much effort at all to convince everyone…they are doing that tragically well for themselves…too many heads buried too deeply in the sands of denial. Love and blessings to you too Sue xxx

  5. You may wish to take a read here Wolfie too about Fukushima.. if this is so then is far far worse than the media are telling us all..

    Love and Blessings for caring.. xxx

    • Thanks for that link Sue. Very interesting reading…I shall be returning to it for a more in depth read too. One thing’s for sure, the media and a whole bunch of other official bodies most certainly do not want us to know the truth. But it is also clear the majority of the world doesn’t want to know anyway, so the blame cannot be left solely at the door of these “cover stories” and silences. No wonder the Japanese people driven from their homes, in some cases forever, felt from a very early stage that the rest of the world has forgotten about them. In general they have. It’s also noticeable of late how quickly the reports on Syria and most recently the missing aircraft are becoming harder and harder to come by. Cover ups follow cover ups…and how easily we let it happen. xx

      • Yes while our attention is diverted from one hand we must be wary of what the other hand is up to!!…

        And I feel so sad for these forgotten people of Japan.. Glad you followed up the link.. its something I have been aware of for a while.. Not all is as we are ‘led’ to believe in this world of ours. As I am sure your aware.. Big hugs and I hope you have a good Full Moon Week.. :-) Hoooowwwwls…

  6. 3 years now. and the mess is still there. I agree with Kenny we dont know half of it.
    what abt the ppl there?
    the animals?
    nature?
    who knows.
    tc Wolfy and hope this never happens again.
    Smile. and a tight huggy

    • This mess will be around for many years to come too. There is information out there if you dig deep enough, but clearly the majority don’t want to know about it all anyway. They are much happier to be kept in the dark and pretend all is well and under control. It’s not but…
      As to what about the people there – The site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan remains a post-apocalyptic landscape of abandoned towns, frozen in time. Thousands are still displaced and living in emergency accommodation 3 yrs later, many will never be able to return home because of the radiation levels. Some have committed suicide. Most felt from very early stages of the disaster that they were forgotten by the rest of the world. I don’t think they were wrong. People don’t want to remember. The animals…nature…as with Chernobyl they will survive and adapt and nature will take over, in time creating habitats that animals and bird-life, can thrive in albeit with some unsettling deformities. For sure, if humans don’t find some sort of viable alternative fast, this kind of thing will most certainly happen again. Wolfie hugs.

  7. Hej Wolfie..
    ja visst är hösten vacker och jag älskar den också..
    Men jag är också glad att våren nästan är här för vår vinter 2013-2014 har verkligen varit skit regnig grå och trist..
    Härligt att du gillade det första fotots innehåll..
    Hoppas allt bra med dig wolfie och att våren får dig att må bra..Massor av kramar från Nicki

  8. Oh the things your teaching us! good to know

  9. my late mother-in-law and her family except one sister has all died of cancers, several different types so any of them could be the reason…
    they were exiled out of Russia…and were Hiroshima survivors…
    I think we are just at the beginning of the catastrophe from this nuclear fallout…
    a sad post but a good informative one that more need to pay attention too…
    Thank you for sharing …
    Take Care…You Matter…

  10. Few will pay attention to this post because it is unpalatable and uncomfortable reading, and it does bring spring smiles to dark lives. But so be it. They can run but they can’t hide.
    Thank you for sharing this personal reference. I very much appreciate that you have done that. It brings the realities crashing home but it is also terribly sad. It also highlights the big problem that as a consequence of the number of years that normally pass before radiation-related cancers become evident in the human body that it is often impossible to prove beyond doubt that there is a connection. Providing the authorities with the perfect escape route from the responsibilities. Even when you know in yourself that there is a link and nothing else can explain the cancer away the medical profession themselves still refuse to acknowledge it. My heart goes out to the survivors of all nuclear disasters.

    Radiation related illnesses are so slow to manifest themselves and it’s like living with a time bomb, always wondering, never really knowing, and even when you’re sure, no one is going to believe you in the first place, without damning proof that is not available so far on, so best keep quiet, smile quietly and hope.. The simplest of mistakes, in any environment, involving radioactivity can have such long reaching effects, and not just in health terms…job loss, hopes and aspirations shattered…

    Thank you for understanding this post…and for caring. Your comment here has dispelled some of the darkness that was threatening to overwhelm since posting this and seeing just how few there are left to care. Have a beautiful week :)

  11. Wherever there is anything nuclear there is always a chance of contamination,
    but does this stop the ever increasing numbers of nuclear power stations? NO
    it does not but it should do. Thank you for adding this posting Icywolfy as it is a
    reminder of what catastrophes are just waiting to happen, and anything that is
    man-made can go drastically wrong, the past has shown us this time and time
    again, and through these disasters there should be a stark warning, that these
    nuclear power sources are just not worth it. Hopefully in time things will change
    but for the now we are facing a world of uncertainty, and a dangerous future :(

    Have a wicked Monday Icywolfy
    and sorry for not calling in sooner…

    Andro xxxx

  12. extreme situation for the ppl there.I heard time ago also that Delhi (India) has very bad air quality trough the extreme vehicles there.

    Huggy for u Wolfy

  13. Sorry I have not visited in a while Icywolfy
    but I will be returning to WP soon, well after
    the World Cup that is :) Hey I hope England
    beat Uruguay on Thursday or our plans for
    a wicked Cup challenge will be over before
    it has begun, but let’s keep optimistic, I have
    my flags flying on the car and will keep them
    there for the whole tournament, I just hope it
    isn’t short lived for England :(

    Hey that won’t stop you and me eating our
    chocolates and strawberry tarts, I will have
    the virtual one’s and you can eat the authentic
    variety, yes I am dieting and into my sixth
    week :) Yaaaaaay how about that for Vampy
    determination? ;) :) Well I am doing well so

    worthwhile effort :) Yaaaaaaaay

    Have a happy Monday Icywolfy ;)

    Andro x x x x
