am becoming truly emotionally exhausted by all the recent headlines
describing Fukushima, particularly spent fuel pool #4, as an
imminent threat to civilization.
am not just emotionally exhausted because I fear for the people
of Japan and the entire northern hemisphere.
real reason I am so emotionally exhausted is because I believe
that Fukushima's spent fuel pools have burned many times over
during the course of the last year.
may be still some fuel in pools #4 and #3, but I am convinced
that these pools have burned over and over again. I SAW FLAMES
at Unit 3 in June of 2011 on the Tepco webcam. The common spent
fuel pool probably has burned as well. Perhaps units 5 and 6

Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Is Far From Over by Robert Alvarez,

"Spent reactor fuel, containing roughly 85 times more long-lived
radioactivity than released at Chernobyl, still sits in pools
vulnerable to earthquakes.
than a year after the Fukushima nuclear power disaster began,
the news media is just beginning to grasp that the dangers to
Japan and the rest of the world are far from over. After repeated
warnings by former senior Japanese officials, nuclear experts,
and now a U.S. Senator, it's sinking in that the irradiated
nuclear fuel stored in spent fuel pools amidst the reactor ruins
pose far greater dangers than the molten cores. This is why:
all of the 10,893 spent fuel assemblies sit in pools vulnerable
to future earthquakes, with roughly 85 times more long-lived
radioactivity than released at Chernobyl
pools are 100 feet above the ground and are completely open
to the atmosphere because the reactor buildings were demolished
by explosions. The pools could possibly topple or collapse from
structural damage coupled with another powerful earthquake.
loss of water exposing the spent fuel will result in overheating
and can cause melting and ignite its zirconium metal cladding
resulting in a fire that could deposit large amounts of radioactive
materials over hundreds, if not thousands of miles...."

Japanese diplomats are describing Fukushima as threatening civilization.

the people speaking out above -- Alvarez, Senator Ron Wyden,
and Japanese diplomats Masumura and Murata -- are simply trying
to tell us in code that any MORE fires at Fukushima will spell
the doom of civilization?
they cannot speak the truth of what has truly unfolded because
of the enveloping veil of censorship that surely must be coming
from the top.
Japanese, Canadian, and American governments have lied through
their teeth about the events at Fukushima. I've documented this
in my Lessons of Fukushima powerpoint.

I truly wonder whether the tipping point has already passed
and we are simply awaiting the unfolding of the biggest extinction

imagine it will take decades to unfold so I see no point in
panicking or losing hope for one's own continued existence.
I do see that we need to plan and prepare beyond stockpiling
weapons and seizing resources abroad, which seems to be all
our governments are capable of these days.

"A group filed an injunction on Monday to stop the restart

was struck and trashed by a huge earthquake about five years
years ago but the damage was quite successfully covered up,
with the complicity of the IAEA. A kind of mini prelude to Fukushima.
they have repeatedly tried to fire up some, but not all, of
the damaged reactors, with mixed results.
earthquake shocked the plant, but more so the operators and
local citizens when they discovered that it had been sitting
on a previously 'undiscovered' (underestimated?) fault line.
can understand why the authorities might push to restart some
of the vital reactors there, but I can better understand the
citizens' very real and legitimate concerns over serious problems
that have not yet been addressed in public.

is the world's largest in terms of "net electrical rating"
Wiki article also notes that the plant was shutdown in 2007
after an earthquake that exceeded plant design. 3 units were
eventually re-started, beginning in 2009.
April 2011, Tepco claimed that the plant was not impacted at
all by the 3/11 earthquake

TEPCO: a history of nuclear disaster cover-ups. By Michael Head
World Socialist Website. March 17, 2011
"...in July 2007, the 6.8 quake that shut down TEPCO’s
Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant demonstrated the real nature
of the company’s assurances. The earthquake, 10 kilometres
offshore from the Honshu west coast plant, caused subsidence
of the main structure, ruptured water pipes, started a fire
that took five hours to extinguish, and triggered radioactive
discharges into the atmosphere and sea. The company initially
said there was no release of radiation, but admitted later that
the quake had released radiation and had spilled radioactive
water into the Sea of Japan. Seismologist Katsuhiko Ishibashi
warned that had the epicentre been 10 kilometres to the southwest
and at magnitude 7, Kashiwazaki City would have experienced
a major emergency.
a public outcry, the government again put on a display of anger.
According to media reports, a senior Japanese government official
hauled TEPCO’s president into his office “for a
rare and humiliating verbal caning”. The official was
“furious” because TEPCO management had “initially
misled his officials—and not for the first time, either—about
the extent of breakdowns at Kashiwazaki-Kariwa”.
2007 closure of TEPCO’s largest nuclear plant contributed
to the company posting its first ever losses over the past two
years. It is now the world’s most indebted utility, with
current net borrowings of $88 billion. This financial crisis
has driven management to slash costs and boost output from its
other plants, no doubt also at the expense of safety. TEPCO’s
“2020 Vision” document pledges to “accelerate
cost reduction efforts” and raise the non-fossil fuel
(mainly nuclear) proportion of its generation from 33 to 50

context of all the recent earthquake activity in Japan.

living near the stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant
northeast of Tokyo were exposed to whole-body doses of between
10 and 50 millisieverts
WHO estimates deviate considerably from reality,” said
one anxious Japanese government source. “If those figures
are taken at face value, that may spread disquiet and confusion
among the Japanese public.”
(the latest WHO figures) are overestimates,” said Yoshio
Hosoi, a professor of radiology at Hiroshima University’s
Research Institute for Radiation Biology and Medicine. “In
particular, they have sharply overestimated the doses of external
exposure and food-derived exposure,” he said.
the Japanese government’s System for Prediction of Environmental
Emergency Dose Information (SPEEDI), which is designed to forecast
the spread of radioactive substances, did produce larger thyroid
gland dose estimates for 1-year-old infants in some districts
of Namie, Fukushima Prefecture.
that case, the WHO estimates “probably mostly reflect
reality,” Hosoi said.
WHO began compiling the dose estimation report last summer.
Its first draft, which appeared last November, startled one
Japanese government official.
draft report estimated the whole-body doses for 1-year-old infants
at 10-100 millisieverts in Namie and 1-10 millisieverts in Tokyo
thyroid gland dose estimates for 1-year-old infants were 300-1,000
millisieverts in Namie and elsewhere and 10-100 millisieverts
in Tokyo and Osaka.

figures are just impossibly high,” a government official
said at the time. “If they are released, that will not
only arouse unnecessary anxiety among the Japanese public but
also serve as negative publicity.”

NHK: "EU to defer releasing nuclear stress test results"
here: The article states that the EU started conducting stress
tests on Japan's nuclear reactors over a year ago.The stress
test results are not going to be released as planned. They have
officially been delayed until fall.
"The tests examine the ability of reactors to survive emergencies,
including plane crashes and natural disasters such as major
earthquakes and tsunami.
EU had aimed to release the final results of the stress tests
by June and make concrete recommendations at a summit. But on
Thursday it announced that the final report will be published
in the autumn because it will take more time to complete the
here: Let us consider why the stress results are not being released.
Perhaps this headline sheds some light on the situation:
Report Introduced by Top Official Hosono: “Other reactors
are all in considerably severe condition” — 14 total;

not much has been broadcast” (VIDEO)

not want to release stress test results for.

to this article..4.2 million Bq/Kg of cesium from Black substance
and microscope pics
spectrum of black substance was recorded.
is a sample from Fukushima a 3g of… of “Black powder”
is highly cumulated radioactive dirt contains a bunch of Cs134,137
and maybe other fission products like Pu,Am,Ra etc in some amount.
I received a report it says just 60g or 100g of this recorded
over 600,000 Becquerels/kg in the testing. In Minamisoma city
Fukushima prefecture about 25 km from Fukushima Daiichi power
plant there are over 1million to 3million Bqs/kg of this stuff
has been finding already. This sample isn’t from Minamisoma.
but it’s high enough radiation coming from. gives about

Takeda “3/31/2015 is the last day of Japan”;
Posted by Mochizuki on April 27th, 2012
Takeda Kunihiko from Chubu university roughly estimated anyone
can no longer live in Japan after 3/31/2015.
to his explanation, the yearly dose will reach 5mSv/y (External
dose and the slight internal dose) in 3 years and 4 months from
January of 2012.
states, he receives radiation data from one of his readers.
The person measures radiation three times a day, at work, doorway
of house, and the living room in Mie prefecture (500km from
Fukushima). Prof. Takeda admits the data is scientific enough.
the radiation level has been in the increasing trend since last
September. In linear equations (y=ax+b), the average from January
to March (=b) is 0.10 µSv/h, a is +0.004 µSv/h.
y reaches 5mSv/y in 3 years and 3 months, so yearly dose will
be over 5mSv/y in 3 years and 4 months from January of 2012,
when is 3/31/2015.
Takeda admits the data was collected by an individual and a
and b are calculated by least squares but it’s rational
reason why radiation level is increasing is not explained.

Local official purged for being against spreading radiation,
posted by Mochizuki, fukushima-diary.com, on April 28th, 2012
Murata Tomoaki, a town councilor of Manazuru town in Kanagawa
received resignation advisory resolution from town council.
is blamed for commenting they should not spread radioactive
incineration ash from Kanto to western Japan on twitter.
January, groundwater of disposal site turned out to be contaminated
because of incineration ash from Yugawara town and Manazuru
town, incineration ash became unable to be process in Kanagawa
prefecture. Yugawara town is known to be Onsen resort place,
Manazuru town is known for fishery products.
unions of both towns were asking a private disposal site in
Nara to take the incineration ash. Having this situation, on
3/3/2012, Mr. Murata tweeted, incineration ash from Kanto is
more contaminated than western Japan. It spreads radiation to
all over Japan so he is against it. The ash should be process
in Kanagawa prefecture.
comments followed his tweet, the private disposal site decided
not to accept the contaminated incineration ash on 3/7/2012.
The unions are seeking for other disposal site, the ash is kept
out of the town at the moment.
The radiation level was 144 ~ 490 Bq/Kg.
town council blames him for mentioning radioactive contamination
on twitter, want him to take “moral responsibility“.
4/27/2012, Manazuru town councilor passed resignation resolution
recommendations of him.
