Rogan commenting on his recent trip to Japan for UFC 144
had a really cool driver… and one of the things he said
was about the deal with radiation — Fukushima —
a lot of people are sick, and the government lies about it.

Criminal Error and The Media’s Responsibility”,
by The FUKUSHIMA Project
the one year anniversary of the March 11 disaster coming up,
what did we really find out, and what can we learn? Did TEPCO
make a criminal error on their decisions in the first few days
dealing with the biggest nuclear power disaster in 25 years?
about the media? Did the international media damage Japan’s
reputation with their overreaction to the unfolding events?
And should the Japanese media have done more to counter the
factually incorrect coverage?
Project, a grass-roots investigation committee, which is composed
of a group of academics and professionals, conducted a private
investigation into TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant
accident, and concluded that they could prove the cause of the
accident was a criminal error on the part of TEPCO’s technology
management in the first days of the accident.
group also looked into the media coverage of the crisis, and
believes that some international media’s coverage in the
first two weeks of the crisis contributed to the tarnishing
reputation of the `Japan Brand'. At the same time, with Japanese
media’s `poor coverage', they missed the chance to counter
with `defensive coverage'..."

Background Radiation In 7pm Saint Louis Drizzle Fallout; Maybe
Some Good News by Potrblog
had a light amount of cold drizzle this evening; we took a sample
swipe from the truck and the reading returned 9x greater than
background radiation. Post August 2011, this is a surprisingly
low reading from the leading edge of the Northern Jetstream.
Currently we have low level warm air and high level cold air,
with drizzle that occasional contains a small amount of sleet.
the August down turn in Fukushima, we typically receive a MINIMUM
of 20x background radiation from the Northerly Jetstream fallout.
Hopefully this lower reading is a sign of improving conditions

NRC figured that a 1 year old child in California would get
a 40 millisievert dose to the thyroid from 1 year of consuming
Iodine-131 from Fukshima fallout?
this correct? Is this what they thought?
kind of agency would lie to the public when children are in
direct line of harm?
the evidence substantiates that children on the
US and Canadian west coast were dosed with damaging levels of
radiation, then human rights have been violated because officials
FAILED TO DISTRIBUTE PROTECTION AND ADVISE ON REMEDIATION.
officials need to be tried in a court of law. ALLEGATIONS: failure
to fulfill mission to protect human welfare by deliberately
withholding vital information and by LYING about level of risk.
need to be tried for human rights violations.
agencies and parties that have relevant evidence must be compelled
to reveal their data.
NRC did not redact this conversation when their transcripts
were released. Why?
they not redact it because no evidence was collected (deliberately)
so the crime cannot be proven?
had a headline recently that was derived from de-classified
Regulator: We’ve got to stop labs from testing for Fukushima
radiation — “Tell them to back off” —
Worried about them talking to press about ‘consequences’
did the NRC want the private labs to back off so that the labs
wouldn't collect evidence on fallout levels?
the NRC that criminally corrupt?
must be transparency and there must be accountability.
must demand DISCLOSURE, TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY, JUSTICE

Regulatory Commission, Thursday, March 17, 2011, Emphasis
MR. LEWIS [Robert Lewis, Director
of NRC's Division of Preparedness and Response]:
Okay. Good morning. I will cover four things that occupied
most of the protective measures team time last night. First,
there was a flight by NARAC last night [...] We also are working
-- there was a request coming from last night -- before last
evening's shift to develop projections for doses in California.
And that is -- has been in process. We will need to -- in
order to do that, we will need to engage with -- we already
have engaged with the Office of Research. We are looking to
engage further with Sandia to make some modifications to the
(inaudible) to effectuate those dose estimates in California.
In conjunction with that, there was a DITTRA and NARAC
dose estimate that was done for California that we obtained
as part of the DOE briefing package. And those were estimating
what we believe to be very high doses to children,
and a thyroid (inaudible) dosage. We think that (inaudible)
extremely conservative modeling related to those doses and
assumptions. It's a thyroid dose that involves deposition
of material and (inaudible) integrated the dose over a year
or two, for example, drinking milk from the same cow that's
grazing on the same contaminated field the entire time, things
like that. But once we get the (inaudible), we will have something
to compare (inaudible). Also, when we saw those dose estimates,
we looked in the historical record for any kind of information
related to Chernobyl actual deposits that were measured. We
did find some and (inaudible) dose activity per area of deposits
that were estimated -- I think they were provided from DITTRA.
We did the same dose calculations with those concentrations,
and the doses were approximately 1,000 times lower. So
we were in the one to 10 millirem range versus full rem range,
which was -- full rem thyroid dose range, which was being
(inaudible) by DOE and DOE (inaudible). [...]
after US gov’t estimate showed 40,000 microsievert thyroid
dose for California infants from Fukushima — Data not
released to public — “Very high doses to children”,
enenews.com [Ed. Note: I am continuing this important transcript
near where Dr. Majia Nadeson left off above. I hope class action
lawyers and federal and state prosecutors will pay close attention
to this as well other strong evidence of high level criminal
behavior described elsewhere in this chart series and take appropriate
MIKE: Rob, this is (inaudible). I have a
question for you. This request for doses in California projected
with, I guess, worst-case assumptions, is that correct? (Inaudible.)
MR. LEWIS: I believe the doses that we saw
from DITTRA represented a source term of 100 percent of the
MIKE: Okay. And where — is this information
being considered for releasing publicly, like we do with the
MR. LEWIS: Which information are you speaking
MIKE: I’m talking about these projected
dose models, the models that you — the ones that you
are doing and coordinating with other agencies, is there some
thought about releasing that publicly?
MR. LEWIS: We have not had that discussion
at this time.
MIKE: And don’t take that as a suggestion
to (inaudible). I’m just curious as to how we came upon
doing that with our press release, and then, are we advocating
that for any future press releases here for doses in the U.S.?
MR. DORMAN: Mike, this is Dan. No. No, we’re
not planning any press release with this information. This
was a projection that we were requested to run. Separate from
our being requested to run that, we got this DOE briefing
package that had this other DITTRA run in it, and we’re
not — I don’t know what prompted theirs or all
of the assumptions that went into theirs, but it obviously
caught our attention and we are looking to get what we think
would be more realistic projections. Other questions?
MS. HOWE: Dan, just one comment, and Rob.
This is Linda Howe in Region IV. Rob, I can talk with you
offline about some background information for California.
The DITTRA and DOE runs for California may have been prompted
by queries from the state, because the state has been conducting
interagency conference calls, and DOE, EPA, HHS, has been
part of those calls. Our regional state liaison officer is
also monitoring that, but there is some background that is
politically sensitive that I can share with you offline.
MR. DORMAN: Okay. Thanks, Linda. That’s
MR. HICKSMAN: This is Tom Hicksman. Could
you please repeat the DITTRA projection and our calculation
for the thyroid dose rates in California, please?
MR. LEWIS: Well, our calculations are not
MR. HICKSMAN: But you thought that they might
be 1,000 times less, or that they are –
MR. LEWIS: Yeah. The DITTRA result was four
rem [40,000 microsieverts] to the thyroid of a one year-old
child based on one year integration of uptake. They –
MR. HICKSMAN: I think it –
MR. LEWIS: What we did during the past shift
was looked at the actual deposition rates in California from
the Chernobyl accident in 1986 and extrapolated that out and
came up with a comparable dose rate on the order of one to
10 millirem. So that kind of reinforced our disbelief of the
DITTRA number when we saw it. But then, separately, Research
is working with Sandia to do a separate run.
MALE PARTICIPANT: Just for clarity, we want
to attribute the calculation for NARAC. Okay. It’s not
(inaudible), it’s NARAC — the calculation.
MR. DORMAN: Any other questions?
MALE PARTICIPANT: And also, to clarify, we
don’t have a run of it. We just have the output –
MALE PARTICIPANT: Right.
MALE PARTICIPANT: — that suggests the thyroid doses.
Solar Storm, Another Round of European Radioactive Iodine Detections
To Come? by Potrblog
series of Solar storms have been underway this week, previously
these solar storms have correlated well with indeterminate radioiodine
detections in Europe. Our hypothesis predicting these European
Iodine "Jod" events has been solar proton spallation
of Fukushima generated Cesium 133, and/or Plutonium 239. Given
that the geomagnetic impacts of this storm are predicted to
potentially be severe, the available spallation zone may be
greater than typical. Please keep an eye out for reports
of unusual radiation detections over the next week or so,
especially in the sunlit side of the impact area (expected to
be eastern Europe).
to Make Sense of Fallout Deposition in the US,
much fallout has been deposited in the US?
March the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission had an estimate from
the DTRA (the Defense Threat Reduction Agency) that a one year
old child in California would assimilate over the course of
1 year a thyroid dose of 40 millisieverts, from Iodine-131 alone.[i]
are the ANNUAL ASSIMILATION PROJECTIONS for the levels of STRONTIUM,
CESIUM, URANIUM, and PLUTONIUM exposure for children and adults
in California and other parts of the US?
much radiation fallout are we really going to be exposed to
in our food, water and air?[ii]
will probably never know how much fallout we are being subjected
to because of the extent of censorship over what exactly has
happened at the Fukushima plant—e.g., how many spent fuel
pools have burned and how many reactors actually exploded into
