The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Turkey – Coal mining and nuclear power – corporate corruption threatens society and environment but brings big corporations together

The Mine disaster at Soma has highlighted the issues in Turkey regarding corruption and corporate cost cutting causing health and safety issues . The Turkish government, just two weeks ago, denied an opposition party investigation into ongoing accidents and lax safety procedures ever since the privatisation of the industry in the 1990`s.

A connection between Soma Holdings and the Turkish government was deemed to be a contributing factor.

The price of coal had dropped drastically as wages were cut by using cheap unskilled labour and other cost cutting procedures.

This cost cutting can also be seen in the uranium industry, where the spot price for uranium is a mere (estimated) $20.22/lb (excluding tax and royalty), measured against the Australian spot price of US$34.50 / lb (A price that might cause Palladin mining to possibly go into liquidation as they have to produce their ore using more environmentaly secure practises. The real cost of safe extraction is $144 / lb).

It would be bad enough if Turkeys lax safety procedures (in the name of profit) were just limited to mining coal and uranium. However Turkey is now in the planning process to build eight reactors at two different sites in conjunction with French, Japanese Chinese and Russian consortiums.

In Japan they are using homeless and disabled people with little engineering skills to work in TEPCOS destroyed Fukushima Daichi nuclear site using Yakuza gangster contractors. Areva, who is also involved in the cost cutting Fukushima Daichi nuclear site with their largely failed water processing equipment, are going to supply the design for the Franco-japanese venture.

Russia who is overseeing the beginnings of a civil war in the Ukraine will likely be constructing first reactor to be built using nuclear workers from Belarus who should really be working on the Chernobyl Sarcophagus but the EBRDs (based the City of London) will only give funds to its own International private contractors, so as to deny any funding going to the non privatised Belarus government.

The Chinese will be using an American Westinghouse designed reactor for part of the business deal. China has a terrible record on environmental, transparency and safety issues and they pair well with the USA who are similarly minded.

Finally, none of this could have been possible without causing a thermo nuclear war, was it not for the ever diplomatic and nuclear selling organisation called the IAEA. The IAEA have done more for environmental disaster coverups and corporate profits than the International monetary Fund and all the major oil and coal corporations put together.Yusuf Yerkel kicks a protester

The corporate international media have not given you all the details on the Turkish mining disaster. They will not say that the “mourners” were confronted by the police. The media says the “opposition” or “demonstrators”, much as in the Ukraine where the opposition is called the “Russians” or “terrorists”. Nor will anyone ask the question as to where did all the Chernobyl sarcophagus money go? And why is the work stopped if the Chernobyl site is actually in a peaceful (if corrupt) Belarus?

(Chernobyl sarcophagus not in Ukraine (As most media claim) and everyone seems to have gone on extended lunchbreak)

My thoughts have to go to the victims of corporate greed in India, Turkey, Japan and the Ukraine and the future victims of corporate greed that will be deemed “terrorists” or similar and have the police or armies controlled by the corporations set upon them.

Turkey plans to build two nuclear power plants
English.news.cn 2014-05-14

ANKARA, May 13 (Xinhua) — Turkey and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) discussed Tuesday about the country’s plans to build two nuclear power plants.

“Turkey and the IAEA would continue the cooperation in a strong way, Yildiz said, adding that the IAEA would increase the number of Turkish engineers working in the agency…..There are technology universities of nuclear power plants in France, Russia, South Korea, Japan and the United States. We plan to open one in Turkey,” the minister added.

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/world/2014-05/14/c_133331477.htm

(Updated May 2014)

  • Turkey has had plans for establishing nuclear power generation since 1970. Today, plans for nuclear power are a key aspect of the country’s aim for economic growth.

  • Recent developments have seen Russia take a leading role in offering to finance and build 4800 MWe of nuclear capacity.

  • Application has been made for construction and operating licences for the first plant, at Akkuyu, and these are expected in mid 2014.

  • A Franco-Japanese consortium is to build the second nuclear plant, at Sinop.

“The Energy minister said in April 2013 that talks were continuing with both Mitsubishi-Areva-led and Chinese consortia, the latter led by China Guangdong Nuclear Power (CGNPC) and proposing ACPR1000 reactors, with Fangchenggang 3&4 (due to be built from 2014) as reference units. These may eventuate for another site.”

Australian-based Anatolia Energy Ltd* has a 100% interest in 18 exploration licences which include the Temrezli project. Project activities are undertaken by A Dur Madencilik Ltd (Adur), a wholly-owned subsidiary.”

* Anatolia Uranium Pty Ltd (AUL) has 65% ownership of the Temrezli project,

Anatolia Energy also has a significant tenement holding in the Sefaatli (35 km away) and West Sorgun areas.

The Rosatom agreement for Akkuyu also provides for setting up a fuel fabrication plant in Turkey.

Chain Reaction #119, Nov 2013, www.foe.org.au/chain-reaction/editions/119

The 12% price slump in July was the biggest monthly loss since March 2011. Since September 2, the spot price has been still lower, at US$34.00. Those prices are just over half the spot price of US$66.50 / lb on 11 March 2011, the first day of the triple-disaster in north-east Japan.

Soma Mines Tragedy: Turkey burning in protests after police clashes with mourners

“Even though the previous information given by the unauthorized persons about the death roll correspond to our present data, this does not make them right.”

Minister Yıldız’s statement was not a coincidence. Soma Holding, the parent company of Soma Coal, has close ties with the AKP government. Melike Doğru, the wife of the general director of Soma Holding Mine Enterprises, is a councilor from the government party.

“A parliamentary proposal of investigation about the working conditions into Soma mine workers and work accidents in the town proposed by opposition parties was refused just two weeks ago, on April 29, by the majority votes of AKP deputies.”

The Tenacious Mari Takenouchi takes on JTRIG and TEMPORA and the Japanese Secret Service??

arclight-SmOp Ed by Arclight

Dated 28 April 2014

Posted to nuclear-news.net

“….In the summer of 2012, when Takenouchi started to raise her voice against Fukushima ETHOS on twitter, a suspicious man appeared in her neighborhood and picked up Takenouchi’s then 2 year old boy. I reported this incident to the local police…..”

My Photo

 

Mari Takenouchi has been under attack from JTRIG and its five eyes network. The reason I say this is because of the methods that have been deployed against her.
Firstly, I have to explain the methodology of JTRIG UK and the five eyes network and how they connect to Japan.

There is plenty of evidence that lets us know that the UK USA and Japan have homogenised their security systems;
1 The geo political manipulations aimed at China and Russia where a heavily militarised Japan with dozens of US military bases and the recent RUSI conference announcing confirmation of a Japan-UK military joint effort aimed at sending a clear message to Japan.

2 The decision of both Japan and the UK to redefine a new version of the secrets act to be brought in (coincidental) in March/April 2104 which is supported by global trade agreements being discussed in private that include the heavy censoring of the INTERNET by use of copyright laws and creating a two tier INTERNET system (to be fully implemented in the very near future)

Thanks to the revelations of various whistle blowers including Edward Snowden we can begin to see how the INTERNET has been manipulated by JTRIG using the five eyes security arrangement that encompasses The UK, USA, New Zealand, Canada and Australia.

In fact this blog has been under attack from the Australian section of five eyes and we have even been contacted by an anonymous source that allowed us to find out the actual social media campaign company that was used to overload Christina Mac Phearson with multiple tweets, insults and the types of attacks mentioned in the released JTRIG training manual.

This brings me nicely on to Mari Takenouchis case that I have been closely observing and trying to document and reveal for the JTRIG Psy Ops attack that is was.
When I heard of Maris case I wondered best how to tackle it and gain information. I decided that I would go with the advice she received, which was to make public the insults and threats made against her and highlight the more gruesome aspects of this campaign, whilst highlighting the fact that she was a single parent and a caring soul.

The tact that I took which was helped by a recent Reporters Without Borders article seemd to stop much of the aggressive tweets against her. This was to be expected if the tweeters were “sockpuppets” controlled from a central source. But this could be construed as coincidental and I needed further proof that there was a single point of decision making behind these attacks such as might be expected from a secretive and subtle group like JTRIG.

VIDEO OF CLEVER “DISRUPT” GMAIL HACK

Looking into the JTRIG manual, techniques such as using “Target Templating methodology”, where JTRIG where the target is analysed to see how they connect to the INTERNET and use these forms of attack;
Destroy, Deny, Degrade, Deceive, Disrupt, Protect.
All these terms are part of the larger operation and in the case of Mari Takenouchi we see these techniques as part of a psy ops operation happening over a period of years.
So, Mari has had to block 3,000 twitter accounts in recent years, Her emails have been tampered with in novel ways that are described nicely in the JTRIG training manual using the technology against her. Her twitter accounts have been closed when she has needed them to provide evidence to law enforcement officials and other, then later switched back on when it was of no use to her as evidence. The nature of these attacks has been designed to frighten her and in fact it is likely it had the effect also of encouraging real people such as has been described in my earlier posts, gleaned from Mari`s web blog, to tweet foul things which might actually have had the unintended consequence of helping Mari as she could actually fight back.

Other ways of attacking Mari that can be seen in other high profile cases such as the attacks on Chris Busby by George Monbiot and George Galloway by the Daily Mail are to use high profile people/organisations to degrade the personality and therefore reduce the support of the cause that the target is supporting.

However, Mari has proved tenacious and adaptable and so JTRIG and their Japanese colleagues are trying the next type of attack still based on degrading character and destroying psychological balance. They have decided to attack her for asking for money to support her journalism and translation. This is a very common form of attack and one that was used against myself and Christina MacPherson (By Roger Helbig), as well as the Chernobyl Childrens International Charity in Ireland and amongst many other targets of JTRIG. Also you can see this technique being used on the comments sections of articles in main stream media publications as well as Blogs, Youtube comments, Face book and Talk radio shows.

Mari has also had her family drawn into this by having her son actually being picked up by a stranger in 2012 and her mother being insulted and having to make a statement to try to protect her daughter and grandson in more recent manipulations.

But still the tenacious Mari Takenouchi carries on with her mission to be a spokesperson for the forgotten people of Fukushima and Myiagi who are pressured into silence and having to suffer the effects and fears of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster.

I might add that also at the disposal of this clandestine operation are the likes of Ogilvey and Maher (who also managed the PR campaign for BP after the disastrous Gulf oil spill) and the Japanese Science Media Center who was set up by the UK Science Media Centre to provide hand picked Scientists to give the “right science”. Also in the frame is the legal profession fronted by the likes of Mr Yabe and the French construct that manages the Chernobyl cover up called ETHOS fronted by Ms. Ryoko Ando for the Japanese version. This helps to combat the points that Mari is making. Also it is obvious that planted main stream articles come out and are promoted by social media above any counter stories.

Also, it is becoming obvious to many bloggers and activists that recently, Google and Facebook are being managed to limit the likelihood of stories going viral. This is described in the JTRIG manual and also the JTRIG operators have techniques for the stories and articles they want to go viral, thus sidelining posts.

Here is a couple of extract from maris recent blog post concerning harassment

“….In the summer of 2012, when Takenouchi started to raise her voice against Fukushima ETHOS on twitter, a suspicious man appeared in her neighborhood and picked up Takenouchi’s then 2 year old boy. I reported this incident to the local police…..”

“…..Even my twitter seemed to be a target of attacks, such as decreasing number of followers in an unnatural way and inability to find my own tweets through searching my own account @mariscontact, resulting in much fewer RTs, and frequent automatic log-out.
My English twitter account @SaveKidsJapan had been suspended for use by the attacks by internet obstructer’s the day before I went to the local police to report the their harassement. (Several days later, @SaveKidsJapan went back to service.)
I have been harassed by these people beyond description, which has inflicting me tremendous stress.
On April 26th, a teacher at my 4 year old son’s nursery school asked me, “It seems that your son has been under some sort of stress especially since this April. Has there been anything different for him?”…..”

New York times set straight on all things nuclear by Fiona Fox and the Science Media Network (Plus a few good lawyers)

 

OP Ed Arclight2011part2

Posted to nuclear-news.net

OK so 16th March 2014 the NY TIMES prints an article about media censorship where scientists are reported to not be able to talk to the press and are steered clear of doing studies that concern the Daichi power plant in Japan.. the reason for this is the Japanese government using the likes of the Science Media Centre in Japan set up by Herr Fiona Fox of the UK Science Media Centre.. Funding is also impossible to get for studies.. Then on the 17 March 2014 the NYtimes is asked to post this retraction ..

“Correction: March 17, 2014

An earlier version of the headline with this article misstated the actions of the Japanese government. There are deep differences over how to determine the health impact of the Fukushima disaster. The authorities are not ‘‘squelching”efforts to measure the effects of the accident. “

Of course the dispute is from Prof. Richard Wakeford and Prof. Geraldine Thomas of the UK nuclear lobby who say that radiation is generally a good thing…

HAHAHA !! HERR Fiona Fox and her USA branch “sense about Science” strikes again, giving the “right ” science approach … And we wondered why the NY times recently did a Pro Nuke article.. UMMMMM?

Looks like the editorial staff got a letter from a solicitor eh? and they had to go to the USA equivalent of the Goebbels like Science media Centre (SMC)for some reprogramming.

Heres what the Japanese Science Media Centre has to say about the “right ” Science;

As Asia’s first Science Media Centre, our goal is to help give science a voice on a national and international scale.  Developing the Science Media Centre of Japan (SMCJ) began in 2008, when we found that although the country had a strong R&D industry, scientists were unwilling to talk to the media and focused on talking to the scientific community.

We also found that although the media regarded science as important, there was an overflow of science information, and they had difficulty in finding a scientist who could explain things in a way the average citizen could understand.

As a way to bridge the communication gap between scientists and the media, the SMCJ opened up for service in 2010.  We have been helping scientists share their knowledge about controversial issues with the media in order to help society get access to accurate and good quality information.

Not long after we opened, we were faced with covering the March 11 earthquake, tsunami, and Fukushima.  A huge challenge for a new SMC, but amidst the chaos we managed to send out reliable information, and gain respect from the science community.

Working in Japanese and English has enabled us to take the extra step.  As part of the SMC network, we have been able to help the Japanese and overseas media get in touch with scientists from both sides. http://www.sciencemediacentre.net/smc-japan.html

Herr Fiona Fox

Does science just right for the corporations


Ewen Callaway

10 July 2013

“..Regardless, the SMC model is now spreading around the world, with the latest franchise slated to open in the United States around 2016. The centres are all run independently, but they abide by a unified charter crafted by Fox.

This means that Fox is about to take her message to a much wider audience. “I think there are problems with her reach,” says Connie St Louis, director of the science-journalism course at City University London and one of Fox’s loudest critics. “She’s becoming one of the most powerful people in science.”…”

“…That is a message that Fox has honed well since establishing the SMC in London in 2002. The centre’s aim is to get scientific voices into media coverage and policy debates …”

“… “Our philosophy is we’ll get the media to DO science better when scientists DO the media better,” says Fox. …”

Nature also funded the SMC UK :0

The UK government tells the SMC to manage the news..
The SMC is pro fracking and pro GMO too!
basically pro big buisness…
I think you were to kind with Cameron Christine.. The UK is managing climate change by saying it will be too far into the future to have any immediate effects. even after the weird weather and flooding we have been having in the UK over the winter. Also, they are commissioning some weather modification studies and has asked the SMC to deal with it.. So no articles on weather modification..

The SMC is funded and supported by petroleum, nuclear, pharma, BBC and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC UK) etc etc

follow the money! The SMC did


 

I would like to bring to your attention the mechanism by which science journalism is being undermined.. It may explain George Monbiot`s conversion to the nuclear industry among other things. This mechanism is the Science Media Centers of the world and the nuclear industry driven PR machine
Before SMC
Extra George Monbiot event
After SMC
monbiot41
科学ジャーナリストの地位が弱体化しているメカニズムについて、目を向けてほしいと思います。 多分このことから、原発関連についてのGeorge Monbiotの会話の内容が、理解できるであろうと私は、思っています。このメカニズムは、世界の科学メディアセンターや広告マシーンと化してしまった原発産業のことを、物語っている。 
There is growing evidence that the existence of SMCs is also encouraging news organizations to downgrade science reporters. Recently the newspaper The Australian sacked its science reporter, Leigh Dayton. The reason she was given by the editors was..
SMCの存在によって、ニュース機関等が、科学報告を軽視する傾向が強まってきている。最近、オーストラリアの新聞は、科学レポーターであるLeigh Dayton氏を、解雇した。 その理由は、その新聞社の編集者から、得た理由によると、

they could rely on the supply of press releases from the Australian SMC so that their general reporters could write the science news”.
“一般のレポーターたちが科学ニュース記事をかけるぐらい十分な情報がオーストラリアSMCからの広報から得られるため、だという。”

A large empirical study carried out recently by Andy Williams of Cardiff University, UK also confirmed that..

Science PR was increasing and independent science journalism was decreasing.

Fiona Fox and Connie St. Louis http://www.cjr.org/the_observatory/science_media_centers_the_pres.php?page=4


 

I knew that quality science journalism in Australia was dwindling. It took the most recent pro-nuclear advertorial in the Fairfax media to really wake me up to this. John Watson, ‘Senior writer’ at Fairfax Media, wrote an article entitled, Want to kill fewer people? Go nuclear…..

Why have The Age,  Sydney Morning Herald and others sunk to this level of sloppy journalism?

Apart from the obvious fact they don’t want to offend their corporate backers, this kind of writing is symptomatic of what happens when you get rid of your qualified dedicated science journalists. Amongst the plethora of Fairfax journalists encouraged to depart their jobs were science editor Deborah Smith, health editor Julie Robotham, health correspondent Mark Metherell and environment reporter Rossyln Beeby.

Arclight finds a home in Ireland and some peace in a crazy world!

Op Ed by Arlight2011part2

Date 29th April 2014

arclightPosted to nuclear-news.net

The above song says it all ! I feel like Ive just returned to my homeland after years of battling in the trenches but my hearts go out to those still fighting in their own trenches in far flung lands.

The above is a song for all those people fighting against the odds. The friends I left behind. Those that touched my hearts. Those that helped me along the way and became casualties for causes that aligned with mine and even causes that didn`t.

Well, where to start? I have had extremely good news. In fact two bits of great news!

Firstly I have to thank the anonymous donor who paid for a months rent at the hotel I am staying in. I cant thank him enough. Not only did he pay for a room and breakfast but a dinner a day as well. This brought me literally to tears and I then thought of my special friends who are around the world who helped me get here and some of whom that became casualties of this digital Psy Ops war that is being waged against normal Mums, Dads and young people.

I understood in that moment more than I did before, why Whistle blowers epitomised by Edward Snowden and truth tellers like Julian Assange are so important to us all! If it was not for them

my situation would have been hopeless and so would the situation of many around the world such as Mari Takenouchi.

My second bit of good news is that Jennifer Schweppe believed my “story”. She understood what I had been through and though the legal battles that I might be able to undertake are not her remit she understood that I need to get an Irish passport and that I might be in fear of my life or my sanity. And so I have to thank her too! From the bottom of my heart. I can not go into details here as you might understand but suffice it to say that there may be hope for my petition for citizenship in my new home in Ireland because of the things I have had to endure. This might bring hope to others that can not get refuge in this and other European countries as, currently you need to prove that the country you have come from has broken its agreements in connection with Human Rights Legislation. I will be posting more on this as the situation develops.

In the past 2 years especially I have seen wonderful normal people being attacked with technologies that would have made Dr Goebbels proud. To be able to attack some one without the aid of storm troopers that might baulk at shooting thousands in the back of the head. Instead they use a distant and terrible weapon, the computer and a trained operator that cannot see the horrors that they unleash on their “targets”.

They follow a simple manual that describes a simple set of procedures. This is so distant they go home to their children or lovers and forget the days “work” , like they would forget a play-station game. But I am not here to damn the soldiers, I am here to damn those that allow this and encourage it to happen. The corporate heads that comply and encourage the security services chiefs that get jobs in the same corporations when they “retire”. The politicians that also have conspired, the heads of Legal firms that draw up archaic and limiting laws that restrict growth and innovation in our society. And there are many others such as the heads of the military who allow expenditure and plan for war on a scale never seen before in human history without speaking out and trying to make changes.

I now need to let the relief sweep over me and plan for the future. I have had lots of problems today with the computer and am on my spare. I am tired, relieved and sad I can not do the usual postings and research. But I will be back after I have contacted my children to let them know the good news. They have been worried sick about me and I have not been there for them as I should have because of my fears that they too would be targeted as I and others have.

And then a good nights sleep with some arrangements in the morning. And then the world is my oyster once again where I will ask the questions that are not being asked and hopefully stimulate discussion on important nuclear related questions. This time though my heart will be a bit less heavy because a heavy burden has been taken away from me.

A special shout out to my Face book buddies, the enenews.com commentators and especially Admin there, All the bloggers such as Iori at Fukushima Diary and many others who have been fughting the good fight against the odds and lastly Christina Mac Phearson (whose real name I forget a lot :) ) , who has pulled me through some dark moments in so many ways, not least because of her own personal strength and love for humanity including me sometimes. I wish to name so many but you know who you all are. Thank you all! May your Gods/other bless you and keep you safe! The fight goes on! Sakado Hantai!

PS I am in tears here again, as I finish this.

PPS someone tell Libbe Halevey were still on, as long as I dont get blocked again later. :)

Fukushima, nuclear censorship and attacks on activists

 

arclight-Sm13 April 2014

Op Ed by arclight 2011part2

Posted to nuclear-news.net

Times certainly have changed. I believe that our fight for human rights and justice has never been so threatened as it is today. Recent attacks are to support Japanese Prime minister Abes attempts to start ALL the reactors in Japan.

I am a UK citizen who has been shocked to find out of the lengths that the military industrial complex and associated corporations have been doing in stopping important human rights information getting to you, the public. There has been the targeting of human rights activists on a global scale using new technologies that effect the Internet and mobile communications that we take for granted as part of our everyday lives.

What happened to investigative journalism?

In recent months, if you may have been searching the Internet for information concerning human rights abuses you will have been slowly becoming aware of murmurings of state hacking and other attacks on the people who are trying to bring you information from many locations around the world on a variety of important topical situations.

The issues brought up are being clearly stated in the situation regarding Wikileaks and the Edward Snowden affair. Unfortunately, though, our brothers and sisters in the main stream medias around the world are largely unable to bring you this information because of personal and corporate threats of litigation and because of the governments and security services using various terror laws and state censorship rules to block any, what they consider, to be “dangerous information” .

In the course of my research I have been stunned to see that government departments within the UK, USA, Japan (To name but a few) being manipulated by what i believe to be the military industrial complex and connected industries and corporations. Also in the frame is large insurance investment and banking corporations.

This manipulation is far reaching and includes attacks on independent journalists, scientists, bloggers and politicians and is far reaching and pervasive.

The question of truth in Fukushima, Japan?

In 2011, I was stunned to see a large mushroom cloud appearing from Unit 3 Fukushima Daichi nuclear plant as well as the claimed “hydrogen” explosions from Units 1 and 2. The video evidence from a local Fukushima news outlet was quickly pulled from the web but not before bloggers had copied it and made it go viral. There was at least a fire in Unit 4 reactor building that was claimed to be the spent fuel pool but no video evidence supporting that has been released. Denials of any “meltdowns” of the reactor cores went on for some months in the face of obvious evidence.

My concerns for the people living in the region (some 20 million plus) caused me to investigate the cover up of the true situation. This situation has been well documented on the Internet and discussed with many posits being brought forward to describe the accident and its effects and I will not go into them fully here. The annals of blogs like www.enenews.com www.nuclear-news.net www.fukuleaks.org as well as a Japanese speaking bloggers such as tokyobrowntabby, exskf, and Fukushima Diaries to name but a few, show us a cover up of historic proportions.

Many of the Japanese translators have been shut down in many different ways and I have at least some anecdotal evidence of intimidation, violence and even murders associated with these campaigners and truth tellers.

A vicious circle.

At the end of the cold war with Russia, countries have expanded their security operations and investment instead of reigning them back. Blaming so called Muslim terrorists that they are presently supporting to attack regimes they deem as terrorist.

 So whats the big deal?

I maintain that I and others have been targeted for at least a few of the posits that I have put forward and some of these are;

1) The support of Nuclear Test Veterans claims of health and genetic effects due to nuclear testing during the cold war

2) Supporting Japanese bloggers in their translations into English of the situation on the ground in Fukushima and Myiagi prefectures in Japan.

3) For uncovering military and security operations in stemming the flow of nuclear related information.

4) The censorship of media organisations by the use of litigation and terror legislation.

5) The attacks on scientists and researchers who claim health effects caused by various nuclear processes such as pollution from nuclear fuel processing and decommissioning of nuclear sites in the UK and beyond.

6) For highlighting the problems with nuclear fuel rods and high burn up techniques causing damage to the nuclear fuel rods and nuclear reactor vessels which could cause another Fukushima like disaster.

7) For supporting Professor Yablakovs and colleagues claims of high mortality and other undiscussed health effects as a result of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

8) For uncovering UK complicity in stifling the well proven genetic effects of the victims of the Russian nuclear tests in Semipalantisk in Kazakhstan.

9) In challenging the way in which contaminated food is being spread around the globe by corporations processing methods and the cover up/manipulation of some United Nations organisations.

10) For my findings of other nuclear related pollutions including NO2 and Lead (Pb) causing miscarriage, death and injury to UK citizens and wildlife.

11) For the suppression of genetic blood tests in Japan to hide the damage from radiation and the sidelining of geneticists in the UK and USA, by limiting funding to relevant radiation studies and research.

12) For supporting the efforts of Dr Chris Busby in bringing his years of research to the forefront of the battle against the lies being promoted by the nuclear industry.

We have fight on our hands!

I have been aided by a plethora of bloggers with a wide range interests and points of view and even encouraged by main stream media journalists and media outlets who have found that their public viewpoints have been limited by editorial concerns of litigation and personal threats and harassment of individual journalists.

Owing to the recent increase in attacks on certain key scientists, bloggers and researchers etc, I have wondered how we independent thinkers can overcome such attacks via the Internet, as have had been happening recently. How do we protect anonymity and our rights of discourse in the face of recent developments that highly encrypted services have been co-opted by various security organisations?

It was during the UK select committee investigation into the release of material stemming from the Edward Snowden affair that I caught a glimpse of one such way we could fight back against such a formidable hidden enemy.

The Editor of the Guardian was questioned by various MP`s and committee members as to the safety of the security services in light of the information that was publicly being revealed. The editor seemed to satisfy the committee as to the thoroughness of the checking procedure being used by the Guardian team assigned to extracting information that was relevant to the public good. However, one committee member, representing the UK security services threatened the editor with the new anti terrorist laws and his questioning was stopped by Timothy Yeo MP (the head of the committee). The Guardian editor responded to this threat by claiming that he was defending freedom of speech in the UK. The security services representative also seemed very distressed at the mention of TORBROWSER by the Guardian editor, a software program used by global activists and journalists to hide their IP addresses (location) and maintain their anonymity and safety. So maybe this is something that should be used?

There is also the co-operation of the USA and UK nuclear and military industries and their encouragement for Japan to militarise in line with these countries. this co-operation includes the denial of the human rights petition to the UNHCR by Anand Grover and and their support for the new Japanese “Secrets Law” that gives journalists the threat of 10 years imprisonment and bloggers the threat of 5 years in prison (if the normal litigation threats do not work) for talking about anything nuclear. The UK recently also quietly made more amendments to the UK official Secrets policy apparently to bring it in line with the Japanese and USA tact on secrecy of nuclear and health matters.

Japanese Bloggers, scientists, health proffesionals and journalists speak out!

Scientists, health professionals, media and bloggers in Japan and elsewhere have been highlighting issues with the effects of radioactive contamination in Japan and have brought to light the homeless and disabled workers of the Daichi nuclear site employed with lucrative contracts administered by the criminal Yakusa groups employed by TEPCO, the UK USA and French decommissioning specialists.

They have been also reporting on a plethora of health issues concerning people, animals and the environment that they claim are connected to the contamination in a wide area around the triple meltdown nuclear plant. And there is some peer reviewed evidence for this starting to come out.

Japanese translators are heroes.

This group I have the most admiration for. They are brave and conscientious individuals that seem to be driven by their natural compassion for life and their fellow countrymen. I have to also to include here those translators who are not of Japanese origin also. They are all the most harassed and targeted individuals, in my experience because of there on going on the ground, real time documentation of events and situations.

I need to preserve the anonymity of some of these wonderful, brave people who are so special because they are normal citizens who have taken up the job of the much beleaguered journalists and editors that would normally bring you this evidence. They are people who have been targeted by “unknown” and known forces and have done their best in the face of extreme adversity. So, my documenting of these affairs will be necessarily vague in places.

Topics covered by these translators include;

The dissemination of secretive technical issues to do with a very secretive nuclear industry, the health effects on the citizens of Fukushima and Myagi (reportedly as far away as Tokyo), the corruption within the Japanese government and Energy companies, the scandals of the Fukushima Medical Hospital and support of associated University professors throughout Japan, Corruption of voting procedures during the Japanese elections since the disaster to protect the Japanese nuclear industry from popular anti nuclear opposition and also the manipulation of any provable victims of the nuclear disaster are compensated with the addition of legal gagging orders to stop the information getting out. Indded this type of tactic was reported after the Deep water Horizon Gulf oil spill disaster (In fact Sir Martin Sorrel, CEO of Ogilvey and Maher – who are owned by WPP, are the actual company that “managed” both these disasters on behalf of BP and TEPCO, using very similar approaches to both disasters to mitigate damages to the corporations concerned)

Needless to say that many of these translators have fallen by the wayside as the forces that promote the nuclear lobby set there attentions on them.

International bloggers and You tube uploaders

This group has largely dug into the connections between military and corporate interference in how the news is managed and here the UK has excelled in promoting a little known charity called the UK Science Media Centre. This so called charity vastly increased its revenue in 2011 in the UK and also got funding to set up similar groups in Australia, Canada, Japan ( The Japan SMC web-site is not updated but is still manipulating the news behind the scenes) and the USA to manage the news coming from Japan to the world at large (as well as other topics). And these bloggers have countered this disinformation.

Fionna Fox, one of the founders of the UK Science Media Centre (who was a witness at the Leveson inquiry in the UK) wants only the “right science” to be given to the worlds public. She is strongly supported by a myriad of corporations who want their version of the “right science” to be promoted.

The topics covered by the Science media Centres worldwide also include fracking, GMO, Climate science and weather modification and she uses mainly cherry picked industry connected scientists and specialists largely ignoring the dissenting voices. And specifically this has had a profound effect on the situation in Japan and how the perception of the nuclear disaster and its aftermath is delivered to the public at large in many countries.

Of course the media also has the pressure from the likes of the WPP, the vast global PR corporation to pressure media outlets with the threat of the withdrawal of advertising revenue from any dissenting media corporation outlets.

These bloggers and you tube activists have also disseminated the information from our brothers and sisters in Japan and tried to get it out to the citizens of the world to give them warning of what might happen if a nuclear disaster should happen in another country.

 The corporation that said enough is enough! A fresh start?

Considering that Yahoo has recently relocated its servers to Ireland in an attempt to protect peoples data and because they are aware of a global manipulation of the internet to stop embarrassing and possibly costly information (for politicians and corporations) reaching the eyes and ears of the public at large, it would give some credence to – at least – some of the so called conspiracy claims that can be found on the Internet. The evidence to support Yahoo`s position can also be seen in the way that the establishment are acting in relation to both Julian Assange (Wikileaks) and the Edward Snowden release of data to the Guardian, New York Times and associated blogs (ie. The interceptor – Glen Greenwald).

Finally, I would like to explain that some of these conspiracy claims are being promulgated to hide and create confusion to the real conspiracies that are happening and this is backed up by the release of intelligence training manuals showing how JTRIG manipulates discourse on the Internet.

I believe that the time has come to save the Internet or face the results of ignoring this threat to freedom of expression and thought. It is may also be our last chance to save the people of Fukushima and Myagi from a long future of experimentation, ill health and even death.

I hope that whoever receives this article will share and discuss the issues that I have outlined. I am only touching the tip of the iceberg in this article and therefore only touching on some of the issues raised by my findings and posits.

Will you stand back and allow the powerful interests to destroy centuries of social, judicial and human rights development? I hope not, for the children of Japan and other radioactively contaminated regions and for your children. if we do not make a stand concerning the environmental catastrophes that loom before us, what sort of fate awaits will us all?

Arclight

Thank you to all those that have informed my findings and have challenged my posits and have allowed me to put together all the above (you know who you are).

Lets hope for a better future and a kinder world, if not……….?

Arclight’s message to Beyond Nuclear is blocked real time on Face Book

Whilst sending this link to Beyond Nuclear in the USA I was blocked..

The messaging service stopped after the link was sent. then as i started to post my thoughts, the message jammed and i could not see what i was writing. when I tried to post it up the message wouldnt send and my messaging list completely disappeared. I will include a screen shot of the message i was trying to send..

Screenshot from 2014-04-07 04:50:54

It did mention GCHQ and that is a term that is not allowed to be used by UK residents, Other terms are

Assange

Snowden

Nuclear test veterans

Busby

TEMPPORA

PRISM

TOR Browser

Freedom of speech

Human rights

Love

So I initially thought that it was an FB glitch. Then my daughter sent me a message but i could not answer it as my FB had been corrupted. Here is the screen shot for that.

Screenshot from 2014-04-07 04:58:59

As you can see by the bar on the right, the page is at the bottom but the boxes for response and the messaging section is missing.

And I cannot reply to my daughter either.

Why does GCHQ want to stop the message to beyond nuclear? It is 05,00 GMT and I am being watched real time? A great use of tax payers money and as the GCHQ operator is NOT keeping an eye on real terrorists and criminals we get things like this happening;

Murder of Lee Rigby

One of the assailants, filmed by a bystander said:

“The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers. And this British soldier is one … By Allah, we swear by the almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone. So what if we want to live by the Sharia in Muslim lands? Why does that mean you must follow us and chase us and call us extremists and kill us? … when you drop a bomb do you think it hits one person? Or rather your bomb wipes out a whole family? … Through [many passages in the] Koran we must fight them as they fight us … I apologise that women had to witness this today but in our lands women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your governments, they don’t care about you. You think David Cameron is gonna get caught in the street when we start busting our guns? Do you think politicians are going to die? No, it’s going to be the average guy, like you and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back … leave our lands and you will live in peace.”

—Michael Adebolajo, excerpted from a Daily Telegraph transcript[34]
Why does GCHQ not care about our soldiers?
Theresa May the Home office minister (In charge of GCHQ, MI5 and the National Database Extremists Unit NDEU) has her priorities in the wrong order, or once again, the military industrial complex is not informing the heads of the Home Office on who they are targeting and why. Indeed, The late Tony Benn said that he was not informed of the problems at Windscale (Now called Sellafield), when the meltdown occurred there.
I wonder how many of todays emails, promoting the Sunday Mirror article, that I sent have got to where they were sent too?

The strange case of Dr Chris Busby and Britain’s nuclear lobby manipulating the internet – The Conservative and Liberal Party’s nuclear dreams

arclight-SmPosted by arclight2011part2
posted to nuclear-news.net
help with headline by Sandi Keane ;)

Dr Chris Busby has website hacked for second time in a week!!

The reason for this is that the Sunday Mirror, a major UK based tabloid has published the story of the plight  of the UK nuclear test veterans and their children,under the title;
12 years from out first campaign, the legacy that shames the UK
Exclusive to the Sunday Mirror
Authored by Susie Bonaface
5 April 2014
Nuke vets: the new generation
Introduction by Arclight2011part2
The article describes problems with the Genetic damage being passed on to the children of the veterans and how the UK government is trying to stop the case using Tempora and the illegal UK terror laws. e
The article was not put on the Internet and can only be read in paper form just as local newspapers cannot put stories of the children of Chernobyl coming to the UK for recuperation (the UK is the only country in Europe to recently start charging Chernobyl childrens charities for visas) as reported on nuclear-news.net recently [ Arclights note that the article in question are not functioning for some reason on nuclear news blog but you can get there by clicking here;  http://nuclear-news.net/?s=children+of+chernobyl  ).  (Correction – The Sunday Mirror has now posted it on the web)
There is obviously some strong arm tactics being used on the press in the UK to stop them putting nuclear related stories of any sort on the Internet. So well done to the Sunday Mirror staff and editors.
Here is an extract of the article and here is the full article;
http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/nuclear-test-veterans-scandal-continues-3380063
No let up from radiation fears.
There is no way to prove that radiation caused a specific birth defect. But it is well known that radiation causes mutations and that has been proven in New Zealand.Nuclear veterans have three times as much genetic damage as survivors of Chernobyl.
The British Government has refused requests to carry out the same genetic tests research on out own veterans.
Professor Chris Busby did his statistical survey of the vets and their descendent’s in 2007. It found that children of the vets were 10 times more likely to get birth defects and five times more likely to die as infants.
He reveals: “ The main thing is that the grandchildren are suffering at almost the same rate as the as the children of the veterans. In normal genetics with each generation the effects., with each generation the effects would be less as new DNA is added to the family line. But with radiation exposure a kind of instability is passed down- like an alarming message in a bottle passed from mother to child. It tells the child to assemble the genes randomly in all directions, so you get many children with strange deformities. “ The genes do it in order to evolve around the radiation.” “But it is terrible that women have this fear hanging over their heads because of what happened to their fathers. And yet there is no concessions from the Government or military that it happened at all”
The article then goes on to describe the horrifying situation that Shirley Denson finds herself in as a daughter of a Test veteran. I will post this up in its entirety as the Sunday Mirror probably has been warned away from doing that under national security terms now in force in the UK. (Picture by Roy Fisher on the Sunday Mirror staff)
Dr Chris busby had his website hacked again this morning in line with the article coming out. This is to stop people reading his on-line report from 2007. Which I have a paper copy of in front of me.
Dr Busby wrote this article in Germany when he had his position there but owing to pressure from German nuclear lobby he lost that position.
His report which will be posted on-line here at nuclear-news.net as a “mirror” in case of him being attacked by GCHQ and specifically Theresa May who must have signed off on the cyber attack to allow the UK military intelligence services to behave in such a way.
Do you think Theresa May looks guilty here? (click on link)
The list of reported ailments is as follows;

Increased risk of miscarriage

Increased risk of stillbirths

Increased risk of infant mortality

Increased risk of congenital illness (mutations)

Dr busby connects Uranium as a possible trigger for this damage (Uranium is a beta emitter that is ignored by the Environment Agency in the UK because it gives a low”dose”). This evidence would bring the claims of the IAEA, ICRP and UNSCEAR into disrepute and open the flood gates of litigation against the nuclear industry worldwide in respect of the victims of Kazakhstan (Russian testing), Chernobyl, 3 Mile Island, Fukushima (Japan) and many others including the nuclear test veterans of course.
Here is a quote from the original report;

“The finding that the levels of congenital disease do not taper down with generation doe suggest a genomic rather than (or addition to) a heritable genetic mechanism.”

General manipulation on the internet is as follows;
It might be worth mentioning the USA cyber actions against Dr Busby as epitomised by the likes of Roger Helbig (who fronts for the Yahoo nuclear lobby forums – Google his name and you will see that he and other colleagues are regularly attacking Dr Busby and other journalists, Independent scientists, universities and bloggers). A full description of all the attacks on anti nuclear proponents would be too long for this article but i will show one example below.
Major media outlets are targeted by the likes of Ashursts Australia to stop this type of information getting out. Though Ashursts were eventually very kind to Christina Mac Phearson (a dear sweet 70 plus year old Australian blogger who is my blog partner and was chosen by Palladin Mining  for “special attention”).
Here is my personal plea to the public to support the British Nuclear Test veterans

Here is a plea by Dr Busby

Science Media Centres quietly go along with Australia’s Tony Abbott

arclightArclight 1 April 14 Australia and the UK covered up Fukushima using the Science Media centres with a small group of UK and Australian hand picked scientists..
The Science media centre (SMC) in the UK makes the BBC put on 1 of the 99 per cent who think there is a problem, with 1 climate denier from the remaimng 1 percent..
The UK government tells the SMC to manage the news..
The SMC is pro fracking and pro GMO too!
basically pro big buisness…
I think you were to kind with Cameron Christine.. The UK is managing climate change by saying it will be too far into the future to have any immediate effects. even after the weird weather and flooding we have been having in the UK over the winter. Also, they are commissioning some weather modification studies and has asked the SMC to deal with it.. So no articles on weather modification..

The SMC is funded and supported by petroleum, nuclear, pharma, BBC and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC UK) etc etc

follow the money! The SMC did
Great comments! I hope the refrigeration is solar!!

Whats up with the Thorium reactor supporting Twitter Heads?

arclight-SmOpEd by Arclight2011

Date-  4 March 2014

Posted to nuclear-news.net

A brief description of my tweeting experience – Short and sweet! But here is a little breakdown on the issues discussed/tweet linked.

OK! I am grey haired and get my phone hacked a lot so tweeting came a bit late in the day and my interest was stirred after my boss (The dear sweet little old lady blogger who allows me to create mayhem on her blog) was wearing her fingers out tweeting

The subject of all these tweets concerned possible future of dainty little Thorium reactors replacing the nasty big ogre like uranium reactors.

Of course the reason I believe that the push is for thorium

is that the corporations want to keep the nuclear fuel cycle going even if the uranium based reactors get switched off.

For Thorium arguments click here

http://nuclear-news.net/?s=thorium

I would like to concentrate on the nuclear fuel cycle a bit here to underline a Thorium reactors biggest flaw.

The Halden Thorium reactor in Norway for instance is currently running a paper mill and is running on recycled nuclear waste as well as Thorium.

http://nuclear-news.net/2013/09/12/scandal-norways-ngo-bellona-uncovers-secret-nuclear-deals-at-the-experimental-thorium-reactor-complex-in-norway/

The Oslo Fjord has been polluted from time to time from this reactor with mainly Beta bearing radionucldes according to the EURDEP radiation mapping. But the pollution doesnt begin there for the type of fuel that is actually being burnt.

The nuclear waste that is burnt in this reactor starts out as spent fuel rods as well as “hot” nuclear materials. These spent fuel rods are melted in nitric acid and the useful radionuclides are removed.

This spent fuel processing takes place at limited locations and Sellafield in the UK is one such place as well as La Hague in France. NO2 pollution levels are the highest in the UK with the European Union berating the UK for this pollutant that has been increasing over recent years. This pollution has caused real deaths and is a matter of public record.

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/feb/20/air-pollution-european-commission-legal-action-uk-nitrogen-dioxide

Of course, the emissions from Sellafield and La Hague comes to some some 4000 T/Bq (admitted) if memory serves me right. Bottom line, it is a lot of liquid and air emissions.

Whilst in London in 2011 and 2012 I found myself with a Gieger counter and during the course of measuring for radioactivity in the air I happened to notice that the NO2 air pollution increased with the radiation readings that I got.

I was able to track this pollution as well as others during 2012 using pollution maps and EURDEP as well as my trusty gieger counter and looking at other gieger readings throughout Europe. These pollutants seem to travel together.

But how could this be covered up? I hear you ask?

ETHOS, Ethics and Lies – Chernobyl to Fukushima, Nesterenko to Takenouchi and beyond?

Screenshot from 2014-03-04 07:18:42

arclight-SmMari is facing charges stemming from speaking out on radiation in Japan and advocacy for families relocating children out of the areas contaminated by radioactivity from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi reactor site, operated by TEPCO.

The group ETHOS in Japan supports the decision by some to stay and live in contaminated areas. Sadly, some of these families feel they have no choice due to economics and other factors. Certainly young children have no choice. ETHOS advocates monitoring radioactivity, but well established science supports Mari’s views that there is no safe dose of radiation and that children need to be protected. We support open discussion, access to information and free choice. We ask the Prosecutor to agree that writing and speaking about these issues are not a crime.

Please Stand With Mari as she stands for precaution, protection and the rights of children to a healthy future. THANK YOU.

The late nuclear physicist Vassili B. Nesterenko (2 December 1934–25 August 2008) was hounded and persecuted by the KGB because he published inconvenient truths: research about the consequences of Chernobyl. Here is a short article about his achievements and here is his Wikipedia entry.

Alternate link to his achievements ; http://legendofpineridge.blogspot.co.uk/2010/05/death-of-exceptional-resister-vassili-b.html

“….At a lower level, but also dangerous, there is the CEPN with Lochard. His project ETHOS has failed in Chernobyl : the children became more and more ill, and more severely ill. In the final report, they censured the medical report of the paediatrician, because the project was accompanied with the deterioration of health of the children….” (Full article below)

More on ETHOS radiation project here;

This is the official information
Report on Childrens radiation education structure : http://www.icrp.org/docs/dialogue-4E.pdf
THIS INFO IS NEARER THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER INFORMATION
“…..In effect, ETHOS had learned everything from Nesterenko and had collected his data in order to now supplant him. A real case of plagiarism but with one fundamental flaw: the ETHOS mission, as conceived by the French nuclear lobby had an insurmountable statutory limitation, that prevented it from taking any action in the area of health: ETHOS was not qualified to treat the population medically: (4) What was it doing, in that case, at Chernobyl?I began to understand more when a friend, a sociologist, who had some involvement with ETHOS, told me that Jacques Lochard, leader of the ETHOS project, was employed by the CEA and had defined its task in this astonishing phrase. “We need to occupy the territory…”http://independentwho.org/en/2014/02/05/chernobyl-model-fukushima/

Pr. Michel Fernex is a Swiss medical doctor from the Medical Faculty University of Basel. Born in Geneva in 1929. Member of Physicians for Social Responsibility and International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW). He worked at the World Health Organization (WHO) as member of the Steering Committee on Tropical Diseases Research for 15 years. In 1986, facing the reality of the WHO which attempted to downplay the consequences of the Chernobyl accident instead of helping the population, it compeled him to demand the independence of the WHO from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Since 2007 he has been a leading campaigner of Independent WHO. With Solange Fernex, his wife and member of the French Green Party, Vassily Nesterenko, founder of the Institut Belrad, and film director Wladimir Tchertkoff, he also founded in 2001 the NPO Children of Chernobyl Belarus (Les Enfants de Tchernobyl-Belarus) to support the Institute Belrad as well as the independent recherches of the consequences of Chernobyl accident.

Q1. What were the policy measures undertaken by the IAEA in Chernobyl after the nuclear disaster in 1986?


In Chernobyl, the IAEA arrived soon. Together with Prof Pellerin, delegate from the WHO, they proposed to change the established limits of protection for external irradiation for professional workers in atomic industries and apply them for the population, ignoring that families living in contaminated areas were soon to suffer more from internal irradiation than external. The Soviet Union refused to increase the limits of 5 to 10 or even 20 mSv/year, which would delay the evacuations and would have increased risks for radio-induced diseases. The risks of cancers are only a small part of pathologies occurring, as we learned from Chernobyl.

They did not encourage the distribution of stable iodine to the children, which was recommend by Baverstock, doctor at the WHO. They did not accelerate the evacuation of populations at risk, but waited until the irradiation reached higher doses. They minimized the risk for the population. They financed the Ministry of Health to discourage independent research.

The French lobby arrived later than in Fukushima, with an NGO, the CEPN with M. Lochard, representing Electricité de France with 56 atomic reactors, the CEA which developed the French Bomb, and Areva which builds atomic power plants, stores atomic waste in La Hague, and sells uranium, plutonium and MOX. In the UN hierarchy, the IAEA remains on the top, other agencies have to follow. Even the FAO has to agree, when limits have to be imposed for food.

Their goal is to reduce the costs of the catastrophe and to reduce the impact of Chernobyl on the further sale of atomic power plants.

Insurance investment in the UK nuclear to corrupt science

11 January 2014

Blimey! This has been one hell of a year on the blog here at nuclear-news.net .. Our subscribers have grown and the links and info is getting out.. And this can be seen all over the web.

Activists with different views are getting their voices and opinions heard. It wasnt always like this.

In the early stages of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, as the news organisations began shying away from the topic for a variety of reasons. The main driving force for this was the beleaguered nuclear and energy corporations and more importantly the insurance and investment sectors who had invested a staggering amount on the “new green hope” since the 2008 crash in the banking sector.

Using the PR companies like Ogilvy and Maher who also “smoothed” the Gulf Oil spill in the USA, the UK government used the very Biased science from their “nuclear professionals” from the Science Media Stable. I called many independent nuclear scientists and professionals in the UK and Europe and discovered that the Science Media Centre had blocked all of them for a number of years. The Science media centre has been recorded as taking its orders from the Department of Environment and climate change DECC (65 percent of whose budget goes on nuclear decommissioning).

To my astonishment as the years began to role by, I realised that UK science had been bought of by the corporations. This point on corrupted science and academia in the UK was mentioned by Noam Chomsky in his recent speech in the UK as well as a critique of the same by Chris Busby. I independently discovered this with the help of many astute blog researchers at enenews, exskf and fukushima diary to name but a few.

So, I decided that someone had to look at the science behind radiation myself. After seeing Yablakovs book on Chernobyl being attacked and false rumours of the book not being peer reviewed, so was not valued, I decided to research further. The Independent WHO (Allison Katz) did research on the Chernobyl Forums report (ICRP and IAEA) version of events and found many more peer reviewed articles in Yablakovs book than the international Chernobyl Forum.

After that I decided to find as much info on the nuclear effects and share far and wide.

And that brings me to nuclear-news.net . The news balance is still not even but people are starting to wake up it would seem. The nuclear industry workers have to come to blogs like this one to find out information about their own industry. More censorship is on the way too! In the UK under corporate law. In japan with the corporate secrecy law.

UK Olympic sized nuclear cover up – and it has spread to Japan

arclight-SmOP – ED   Arclight2011  Nuclear-news.net  8 December 2013

The UK has decided to take the cheapest option for decommissioning according to a recent report by the badly named Department of the Environment and Climate Change (DECC), as 65 percent of their annual budget goes just on the costs of decommissioning it should be named British Nuclear Fools.

The processes involved with “decommissioning” are a “corporate secret” but a quick google says that the cheapest option is dissolution that involves melting everything in Nitric acid (or similar) and this has been the cause of high NO2 levels in the UK that are regularly blamed on other industries or countries. Though La Hague in France does contribute.

The UK has been reprimanded by the EU for the deaths caused by this NO2. And in the UK parliament we hear calls to cut the pollution detection monitors as they give the nuclear hazard away and threaten profits. These NO gases and particulates make it to even the arctic region of Russia (as Bellona has reported on many occasion whilst defending Norway from unjust blame)

As EDF and the French government begin the plans to reduce French nuclear and the shutting down of La Hague, they plan to increase use of Sellafield and other sites in the UK for these environmentally polluting nuclear processes.

The Irish Government has not been involved in the decisions for Hinckley, so An Taisce has formally lodged an appeal to the EU. The reaction of the UK and Ed Davey are well documented here… http://nuclear-news.net/2013/12/06/no-objection-by-ireland-uk-nuclear-hearing-told/

And as DECC were threatened with non co-operation if they asked for certain technical details or even the names of people involved, the Irish were likely not to be aware of the processes that the UK was planning to expand nor has their been a proper discussion concerning radionuclide’s and air quality issues being released due to these nuclear processes.

In fact not even the British public could be expected to know. In fact the UK NGO steering group who was supposed to be discussing this very issue over the past two years were not even allowed to know.

Who needs Leveson inquiry to silence information when the corporations and governments are doing the job so well anyway, I find myself asking.

I might point out that DECC also masterminded the Science Media Centre UK (SMC) to cover up or “manage” the Fukushima incident press coverage in 2011, which they then did and were  rewarded by their sponsors (The big corporations and nuclear interests).

Bloggers and free press elements in Japan got too much truth out and the Japanese nuclear family had to close ranks with the USA and the Olympic Committee and have came up with the new “Secrets Act” , a shocking attack on free speech from a supposedly western country. It is now up to the Japanese Press to mobilize the people to reject this new Law, there are some signs of dissent in the media. We wish them well!

DECC has contracts of understanding with ROSATOM as well as some dubious eastern nuclear states. China, an authoritarian and pushy country will have the same leverage over DECC as the French and USA partners and therefore the Chinese communist (mostly)will have control of the information we hear on the news etc.. Have you heard the one about the Dalai lama recently? No? And you probably never will again!

Elements of the UK Media have had enough and are beginning to look a little harder at the Pro nuclear spin and analyse the sources of this drive for nuclear. The UK media is beginning to wake up to the deception but how deep will they dig?

It began after the crash of 2008 and 200 billion Euro moved directly into nuclear investments (A Norwegian insurance investment company has just sold its stocks in TEPCO at a massiviely reduced price and has beeen left licking its wounds). The Insurance and banking industry saw this as a safe bet for three more years and are heavily invested, in fact, the UK insurance industry will be proping up this PONZI scheme with a staggering 25 billion investment that is a curiously small amount considering the Total investment accrued in the Nuclear Industry by now. Just the normal monthly “Top Up” perhaps?

And if you dont think the Insurance Corporations view this as their own private nuclear “gravy train” why was the liability capped in Canada to only 1 billion? when the Japanese have paid TEPCO 50 billion in just the first year after the disaster. It seems it is the  beleaguered Tax Payer is always the end recipient of this PONZI shaped dept burden.

Finally, the UK corporations have been supporting the Pro nuclear Corporations in Japan from the start and are still supporting Japan as it becomes a fascist state  to protect their investments. These investments are very long term, measured in decades, and any country with nuclear power could be facing the same control of the population and of information.

Orwell would be not surprised perhaps at technology being used to enslave people by reducing their knowledge and controlling them totally.. No dissent, no illegal thoughts or 5 years in prison and a criminal history to stop you getting work for the rest of your life. Poor Japan! Poor UK!

A sad loss – Bloggers ill health closes down Fukushima news blog!

Op Ed by Arclight2011

26 November 2013

Owing to the loss of the Fukushima Appeal Blog because Mia has some health difficulties to attend to, I would like to thank Mia on behalf of Christina and myself and I presume the readers of this site for her dedication to translating Japanese blogs and articles so that we in the west  and Japan could appreciate her Japanese perspective .

In fact I would like to thank many of the bloggers (English speaking and other) that have strived to get the facts from a country that is slowly slipping into a police state, where freedom of speech is now illegal.

The Big Energy oil and nuclear corporations in Japan, USA, Canada, Australia, France and the UK (largely supported but the media) who have lied and prevaricated all the way through this ongoing disaster and it has been the alternative news groups and individuals that have shone a light onto the seedy side of this buisness.

We have seen the rejection of solar, wind and thermal by Japan as shown in the recent oil report I posted yesterday, the denial of health effects with the support of the Science Media centre in the UK, that is directed by the Department for the environment and Climate Change (The UK government), that use industry supported Proffessors that will only admit to the psychological impacts of the disaster on the seriously affected populations of Fukushima and Myagi Prefectures.

So, thank you Mia for all your hard works over the last two years!

I will list but a few of her posts and encourage you all to research her blog as it is an excellent insight to one bloggers perception of this “hidden” disaster from a Japanese perspective.

Mia has also translated English to Japanese so her countrymen could share these articles that would otherwise not be seen by the Japanese speakers.

Good luck with the future Mia

And a word from Christina (The owner of this blog) about our fellow blogger and contributer, Mia;

“A temporary farewell to  a brilliant blogger

The website  http://fukushimaappeal.blogspot.co.uk/  Fukushima Appeal 福島アピール has been running for nearly 2 years now. It is a unique and brilliant site, giving news and insights on the situation at Fukushima..  Now the author is unwell, and needing time off.  But we look forward to recovered health and  the resumption of posts before too long.

Not only are these posts completely on the ball, well written  and timely, but also,with posts in both English and Japanese, readers are given a special view, not provided by any other website.”

TEPCO -Workers deaths are not reported 報道されない原発作業員の死亡について

…“She said that there have been so many workers dead without being reported. Some died during the 2 days break, some didn’t turn up the next morning and were found dead…. Those who died haven’t been measured for how much exposure they got. Tepco doesn’t count and report the dead unless they die during their work hours.” …

UK Nuclear – Pandoras Box has been opened, but can it be shut?

arclight-SmOp Ed by Arclight2011part2

posted on Nuclear-news.net

13 October 2013

This weeks calamities for this blogger included, all dongle data Sims were blocked for half a day, I was unable to get into WordPress to post for whilst I availed my self of the free wireless network at my local library, During another session at the library my wireless became defunct.

Not a boring week by any means..

I thought I would get some thoughts down as the Internet seems to dislike me for some reason..

Heres why,

I uncovered a document where the UK Government body called DECC (Department foe Energy and Climate Change) instructed the UK Science media Centre to “manage” the news on Geo-Engineering, This got me thinking as you might well imagine.

The Science Media Centre (SMC) received a £300,000 boost to their income in the charity fiscal year of 2011. As I have previously mentioned that this “charity” sent a mental health professional to deal with the disaster at Daichi, as far as I could work out the psychologist was paid by a secondary aim of the “charity” that deals in mental health issues.

Considering the recent hurried push to sign nuclear contracts in the UK and get control of the epidemiological research, it makes sense that the SMC was advised by the UK government to shut the bad news down concerning Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, The Home office even sent diplomats to play cricket in Fukushima prefecture the day before the Japanese won the Olympic 2020 bid.

So, we have DECC instructing the SMC to manage the Geo engineering news and it is obvious that the SMC UK was behind the coverup of Fukushima with Ogilvey and Maher from the WPP group (Tony Blair works for WPP for a large retainer).

I have been made aware that the government is possibly undermining representations being made by NGO`s and civil pressure groups and have been helping find the data on this and that is likely why I had was targetted for disruption this week,

I am still awaiting an official statement on behalf of the NGO`s etc and will post the statement when it arrives on my email.

The recent showing of Pandora’s box and many “nuclear is the only solution to climate change” articles and videos are designed to show how pro nuclear the UK is and how ready for nuclear investment the UK is. Offers from China (The BBC does their children’s programming), Japan (Japan is ensnared into the nuclear fuel cycle and decommissioning strategies) and from a broke EDF (currently trying to pollute the whole of the English channel, north sea and just about anywhere they can get away with it) are flowing into the UK as quickly as the dissolution process for the nuclear fuel rods that pollutes our air space and waterways flows outwards. And the UK government wants lots of little La Hagues and Sellafields poisoning the waterways for multiple generations to come and MOX run reactors that give a guaranteed BIG BANG if there are any serious cooling lose incidents (ref; Daichi 3 nuclear reactor).

DECC has reported that the private companies will not share the technical data nor even the names of persons involved with the data. There is also some idea that there are no independent epidemiologists who will be accepted by the private corporations, so therefore they support Richard Wakefords (Ex BNFL) posit of “no effect from nuclear accidents worth talking about”.

I am not going to bash the BBC at this point as they tie in to every aspect of this marketing of nuclear materials and cash because it would make the article to long.. But you can imagine…

In short, DECC appears to be going all out for the large and very expensive nuclear projects that will not reap any rewards for a number of years and likely push Fracking as the interim solution. Meanwhile BP, the Anglo American corporation, is still drilling for the oil like there will be no tomorrow.

EDF charge about £65.00 per mega watt in France whilst in the UK the spot price, on offer, seems to be settling around £100.00? EDF are pretty broke and still have to find a cheap solution to the nuclear waste problem for their existing nuclear sites.

I will be reporting more on the processes that are being used and the new ideas that they are thinking of to cut costs at a later date.

In the recent government report it shows that they value cost cutting as a priority issue and following up that with secrecy concerning epidemiological research. And they didnt seem to interested in any other science from Yablakovs New York Academy of Science presented book that is now in its second edition with the needed corrections. Nor do they take into account the voices of dissent in the nuclear industry in Belgium, USA, Japan, Belarus and UK. Instead they close ranks and hide everything and everyone who might be responsible for a future UK nuclear health tragedy (though radiation has already reached Norway and Ireland (AM241 found near Dublin Bay recently in growing amounts).

That all I have to report for now, UKColumn is doing an in depth investigation on the BBC next week, I will post a viideo up. They have connected the BBC to WPP and they are generally not happy with our great British broadcaster, that appears to be now an arm of the global advertising and media corporations.

The title says it all
But heres some of my research into these blighters .. its cluttered and unsorted but it will give you an idea of just how big a con this organisation is.. A registered charity working for the corporate PR machine.. Stunning!  more to come in the next few days..
i have put a few things in the comments section of this article as well… there is a big problem with ME groups who resent what the SMC has done to their cause as well.. you can google that stuff or wait for me to get to that section of SMC science suppression campaign..

Science media: Centre of attention USA

Fiona Fox and her Science Media Centre are determined to improve Britain’s press. Now the model is spreading around the world.

Ewen Callaway

10 July 2013

“..Regardless, the SMC model is now spreading around the world, with the latest franchise slated to open in the United States around 2016. The centres are all run independently, but they abide by a unified charter crafted by Fox.

This means that Fox is about to take her message to a much wider audience. “I think there are problems with her reach,” says Connie St Louis, director of the science-journalism course at City University London and one of Fox’s loudest critics. “She’s becoming one of the most powerful people in science.”…”

“…That is a message that Fox has honed well since establishing the SMC in London in 2002. The centre’s aim is to get scientific voices into media coverage and policy debates …”

“… “Our philosophy is we’ll get the media to DO science better when scientists DO the media better,” says Fox. …”
