No matter what I say, it is not going to make a dent in the lockstep of denial that exists around the horror of the nuclear industry and Fukushima. What is happening in northern Japan and the radiation contamination in the United States and Europe, which has rained down since March 11th of 2011, is staggering and beyond most peoples’ capacity to comprehend.
The Journal Environmental Science and Technology reports in a new study that the Fukushima radiation plume contacted North America at California “with greatest exposure in central and southern California,” and that Southern California’s seaweed tested over 500% higher for radioactive iodine-131 than anywhere else in the U.S. and Canada.
Everyone knows nowadays that nuclear plants are not really safe—even if a few noisy die-hards continue to argue that radiation from nuke plants is harmless.

Those who have spent billions building underground shelters are stupid for they are remaining above ground allowing themselves and their children to become contaminated with radioactive particles including plutonium. The rest of us have no choices though we should be planning to board starships and take off for some pristine destination. The closest I found to this is living in a valley in the middle of the South American continent. It is my hope that only ten percent of the radiation coming from Fukushima will reach deep into the southern hemisphere but ten percent is still too much when I look forward to my children’s lives hopefully enduring for many years to come.
Time is running out for the 35 million people in the Tokyo metropolitan area though and in fact, in a year or two all of northern Japan might become quite uninhabitable. Radiation levels are creeping up and it is sad.
In reality Fukushima is anything but stable with the biggest issue being the spent nuclear fuel pool of the No. 4 reactor. The storage pool in the No. 4 reactor building has a total of 1,535 fuel rods, or 460 tons of nuclear fuel, in it. The seven-story building itself has suffered great damage, with the storage pool barely intact on the building’s third and fourth floors. The roof has been blown away. If the storage pool breaks and runs dry, the nuclear fuel inside will overheat and explode, causing a massive amount of radioactive substances to spread over a wide area. Both the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and French nuclear energy company Areva have warned about this risk.
The worst-case scenario drawn up by the government includes not only the collapse of the No. 4 reactor pool, but also the disintegration of spent fuel rods from all the plant’s other reactors. If this were to happen, residents in the Tokyo metropolitan area would be forced to evacuate.
Governments Are Failing Us Everywhere
David Galland of Casey Research said, “No matter how outrageous the misdeeds of the world’s governments, or how heated up I might get about those misdeeds, they have become so commonplace that the average dear reader today almost certainly views a discourse on these outrages with roughly the same level of concern as a discussion about the weather. The ability for critical thinking has been washed out of most people by a numbing shower of government propaganda, state education and media misdirection. The result is that the vast majority of people no longer bother thinking any more deeply about the very real issues confronting them than they might in deciding whether to have sprinkles on their ice cream. Worse than that, they don’t even understand the concept of thinking critically, let alone its importance.”
In Tokyo one can go out for some ice cream and be treated to radiation contamination. It is as if a nuclear war has been fought there but this time it’s hundreds of millions of people, if not billions, who will be affected. I would not like to be the one who plots out the worst path of the radiation plumes that have circled the northern hemisphere. The picture is ugly and getting uglier by the month as radiation continues to spread and as the situation in the nuclear reactors at Fukushima continue to deteriorate.
Jeff Steele of Naval Reactors wrote, “The nuclear accident in Japan has resulted in widespread deposition of radioactive contamination throughout the northern part of Japan, including the metropolitan Tokyo area. Surface contamination levels in this entire region would be required to be posted as radiological area if they were at a U.S. licensed facility or DOE site.”
“Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.” Friedrich Nietzsche
People in general are mentally ensnared by decades of indoctrination from propagandists in government and on Wall Street, spoon-fed to them by the corporate mainstream media. People are mentally incapable of accepting the facts about an impending economic collapse and they are even less capable of accepting what the nuclear industry has done to the world. We have made a terrible and tragic mistake with implications for our race and its civilization.
John Rubino wrote,“For a couple of years now it’s been clear that the world was about to fall apart, with the only question being which local failure turns out to be the catalyst for a systemic breakdown. So many things were on the verge of blowing up… yet none of them did. The world’s governments have engaged in a heroic period of ‘extend and pretend’ that has kept the system together longer than seemed possible.”
Just about everyone today is playing this extend and pretend game and this goes for the nuclear industry that does not want to pay any attention to the planet-destroying nature of its industry. We find out too late that we do not need a nuclear world war after all to destroy ourselves. The fact that most nuclear plants are built on or near fault lines or tsunami-vulnerable areas tells us that worldwide, the nuclear industry is just an accident waiting to happen.
And wouldn’t you know our luck. Just a few decades after most of the nuclear plants have been built we find ourselves suddenly in an era of increased seismic and volcanic activity. The ground is shaking and most of our world’s nuclear plants are vulnerable.
The news is extremely bad from the stricken Fukushima nuclear site in Japan, where a probe of the only one of the three destroyed reactors where access is possible revealed still-deadly levels of radiation. Detectors in reactor No. 2 showed damage so severe that special technology will need to be developed just to survive the harsh environment. Cleaning up is going to take decades. Water levels inside the containment vessel that houses the radioactive core were also found to be way too low, despite continual pumping, although the water temperature indicates the fuel has been cooled.
Detected radiation levels of 70 seiverts an hour will kill a human after seven minutes of exposure, and these levels are 10 times higher than experts had been hoping for. Levels are even higher in reactors No. 1 and No. 3.
Post-Fukushima Japan may be approaching an energy death spiral, says Nobuo Tanaka, past executive director of the International Energy Agency.
A Japanese professor has detected all three isotopes of Plutonium at levels 200 times higher than Japan admits over 50 kilometers south of the Fukushima nuclear plant.
It is not getting better and is in fact getting worse. Radiation dose tripled at a Tokyo monitoring post recently and doubled at another.
The Plutonium Angel of Death
Plutonium represents certain death; it is death, concentrated in nuclear form. Riders of death come swooping down from the upper air currents on plutonium steeds and just one tiny particle of it has a deadly effect if it touches down anywhere inside of a human or a beast.
The very last thing the elite controllers of the world want us to know is that nuclear super particles (plutonium) are scattering around the world like Hun Hordes. We have this going on already with mercury and other heavy metals and chemicals; now the toxic soup on our planet is going nuclear in a big way and it will continue that way into an increasingly toxic and frightening future.
Of the three damaged reactors at Fukushima, only reactor No. 3 has plutonium in its fresh fuel, but all the reactors contain plutonium. All of the spent fuel rods kept in the storage pools at each reactor contain plutonium. In the Fukushima reactors, plutonium-239 is a byproduct of nuclear fission and occurs when uranium-238 in the fuel absorbs neutrons. Fukushima has enough plutonium to kill every man, woman and child on our planet if it all gets out.
“A sample of plutonium-239 giving off one curie of radiation per hour will give off about 99.999…% as much radiation tomorrow, or next year. But a sample of iodine-131 giving off the same amount of radiation today, will give off half as much radiation in just eight days, and half as much as that—a quarter curie per hour—eight days after that. In a few months it will be gone completely,” writes Ace Hoffman, who tries to educate about the various radiation terminology on his site.
Is the Japanese government continuing to lie about the extent of radiation pollution during the Fukushima disaster? Absolutely! The same can be said about the U.S. and all other governments who are all in cahoots with each other as they continue to baffle the human sheep in their domains. One world government is seen in the medical as well as nuclear industries. The lies about vaccines and those about the safety of nuclear plants are worldwide acts of public disinformation.
Planet earth is not such a nice place to live anymore though there are still havens of sanity and even some places we could still call pristine. I published my book Nuclear Toxicity Syndrome and the second edition of my Iodine book in the months after Fukushima. Fortunately the more educated and more open-minded people these days are learning how to defend their bodies against radiation damage with a list of natural but powerful substances like magnesium chloride, iodine, sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), clay and cannabis resins.
