The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Pandora’s meltdown on CNN

Reports Deadline Hollywood: “Well, one thing is for sure: Cable news viewers like films about killer whales a lot more than ones about pro-nuclear power. CNN’s airing of the documentary Pandora’s Promise delivered a wet 345,000 total viewers in its 9-11 PM time slot and just 145,000 among adults 25-54. The heavily promoted Robert Stone-directed film was way, way down from the 1.36 million that CNN Films’ Blackfish drew in total viewers in the same slot two weeks beforehand.”

Haiyan wrought havoc throughout the Philippines when
the storm began to gather steam on November 2, 2013. The storm quickly
expanded to well over 500 miles with sustained winds nearing 200 mph
and even higher gusts. The hurricane ripped through Albay
province just recently as unprecedented winds tore off roofs
and waves reached as high as 40 feet in some areas. Nearly 10,000
people are feared dead.
The Philippines put into place a National Disaster Risk Reduction
and Management Council to help prepare for natural disasters like Haiyan.
In late September, 2010, the Philippine Disaster Risk and Reduction
Management Act was promulgated to strengthen the disaster planning and

recovery capability in response to Typhoon Ondoy.

Luckily, the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant was never fully activated. The Bataan

Nuclear Power Plant is 45 miles west of Manila  atop volcanic activity.
Bataan seemed destined to become the first operating nuclear plant
in Southeast Asia until the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster. Then, the
Philippine government mothballed the nuclear power plant.
The NOAA Hurricane database shows that Haiyan is a huge storm on its
global radar. In fact, Haiyan may be the largest storm in recorded
history! An August, 1931 flood and tidal wave off the Huang He River
in China killed over 3 million people.
Currently, the International Red Cross is managing aid to the
Philippines along with other charitable groups and major
organizations like CARE. Typical disaster aid kits include
the following:
o water and food rations
o emergency lighting, blankets and clothing
o sleeping gear
o American Red Cross Kits
o evacuation and fire supplies
o trauma and first responder kits
o pet emergency kits

o water bottles and potassium iodine tabs for radiation protection

NRC says there is no health effect in the area below 20mSv/y! Is it scientifically proved? 福島民報に20mSv以下は健康影響なしと報道! それは科学的なデーターに基づいている判断?

Sunday, 10 November 2013

(Translation by Mia)
 The Nuclear Regulatory Agency is preparing a report on the safety measurement to publish within this month. Fukushima Minpo newspaper reported that they set to announce that there is no health effect in the area that is below 20mSv/y.
(Editor’s note: 20mSv/y is for nuclear workers according to the ICRP standard. 1mSv/y has been international standard for citizens according ICRP that was based on the data of Hiroshima/Nagasaki nuclear bombs victims. Is there any scientific data that says 20mSv/y is safe? )

  Mr. Kosako who had been well respected professor and was the advisor to the former Prime Minister, resigned in protest at the government’s decision of 20mSv/y in 2011, saying that it went completely against his ethics as a scientist and a grandparent.  …
  In Chernobyl, nobody has to live in areas where the radiation level is more than 5mSv/y unless they want to.  In Japan, the government had been appling the ICRP model for emergency situations as a normal one after the disaster in 2011, and had been treats 20mSv/y areas as safe places to live so they do not have to evacuate people from such areas.  We shouldn’t allow this false sense of security to remain unchallenged, otherwise it could be foisted on the rest of the world as well.
In 2008, the average dose in heavily contaminated
territories of Belarus, Ukraine and European Russia
exceeded 1 mSv/y
—primarily from eating locally
contaminated food. However, the administration of
apple-pectin food additives is considered helpful for
body decontamination of
137 Cs. Between 1996 and 2007, 160 000 Belarussian children received pectin food additives for 18–25 days

137 Cs levels decreased by 30–40 %. Special protective measures in connection

with agriculture, forestry, hunting and fishing will be
necessary to protect the health of people in radioac-tively contaminated territories for many generations……..

Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment

highly-recommendedBook   Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment (Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences) [Paperback] read-this-way Alexey V. Yablokov (Editor), Vassily B. Nesterenko (Editor), Alexey V. Nesterenko (Editor), Janette D. Sherman-Nevinger(Editor)

This volume, written by leading authorities from Eastern Europe, outlines the history of the health and environmental consequences of the Chernobyl disaster. Although there has been much discussion concerning the impacts of nuclear accidents, and Chernobyl in particular, never before has there been a comprehensive presentation of all the available information concerning the health and environmental effects of the low dose radioactive contaminants that were emitted from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The official discussions emanating from the IAEA and associated UN agencies (e.g. the Chernobyl Forum reports) have largely downplayed or ignored many of the findings reported in the Eastern European scientific literature and as a consequence these reports have erred on the side of negative findings simply because much of what was known was not included in their assessments.  This new book provides a complete and extensive summary of all known research, including that published in Russian and Ukrainian, and provides new insights to the likely long term health and environmental consequences of nuclear accidents.NOTE: Annals volumes are available for sale as individual books or as a journal.

Fukushima evacuees returning to areas of high level radiation

TV: “It’s a crime what’s happening at Fukushima” — People resettling areas 10 to 15 km from plant with “radiation levels still very, very high and even lethal in some cases” — Hotspots 60 to 70 km away same level as ghost towns in Chernobyl (VIDEOS)

RT,, Nov. 7, 2013 — Kevin Kamps, Beyond Nuclear: Well, that’s a great tragedy that the Japanese government is allowing this [resettling near Fukushima] to happen. To within the closest 12.4 miles of the devastated nuclear power plant obviously the landscape is contaminated, the food supplies are contaminated. As your reporter said, it’s up to individual private citizens to try to figure out how bad the contamination is. The environmental groups are trying to help them. So, it’s beyond tragic, it’s a crime what’s happening at Fukushima Daiichi.

Abby Martin’s ‘Breaking the Set‘ with RT reporter Alexey Yaroshevsky, Nov. 8, 2013 (at 26:30 in): What struck me the most, and I’m saying that as a person who’s been in the Chernobyl exclusion zone […] The cities and towns which are located just 10-15 km from the nuclear power station where obviously radiation levels are still very, very high and even lethal in some cases. So those town have been reopened for settlers, we literally saw people rebuilding their houses in these areas and this is creating a huge concern in Japan […] In some other areas 60-70km from the nuclear power station, the areas which have never been included into an exclusion zone, which have never been under lockdown, raditional levels, the ones we’ve encountered, some hotbeds, hotspots of radiation we encountered have 3 microsieverts per hour. And this is the same level as the ghost town of Pripyat in the exclusion zone in the Ukraine, the level which would not allow humans to live in this area. Watch the report here

Japanese safety experts secretly funded by nuclear industry

corruptionExperts commissioned by nuclear watchdog fail to report ¥40 million in funding, Japan Tmes,   JIJI NOV 9, 2013 At least 10 university experts commissioned by the Nuclear Regulation Authority to discuss safety rules failed to report over ¥40 million they received in donations and research funding from the atomic energy industry, sources said Saturday.

They received the undeclared money from power companies, nuclear plant makers and other related entities and had not declared this total as of late October, according to documents reviewed by Jiji Press based on the information disclosure law.

The NRA commissions experts to discuss nuclear safety standards and other regulations, and asks them to disclose the amount of money provided to them since fiscal 2009. The industry watchdog does not verify reports of such funds.

Of the experts who failed to report part of the funding they received, five took part in discussions about new safety measures, two participated in talks on regulatory systems and another two attended meetings on the Fukushima disaster.

According to materials provided by universities to which they belong, Yutaka Abe, a professor at the University of Tsukuba, had the highest unreported amount, at around ¥13.14 million……

Laughable lies from film “Pandora’s Promise”

Book-PandoraReportCoverAcademy Award for presenting:  FALSEHOOD AND FABRICATION
CNN Airs Outrageous  Lies About Nuclear Energy  Pandora’s Propaganda  By Dick Allgire Honolulu 11-8-13
I happened to catch the CNN special program “Pandora’s Promise” last night. CNN has reached a new zenith of falsehood and fabrication……. Interesting title, alluding to Pandora’s Box, the artifact of Greek mythology that when opened released all the evil that spread throughout the world. We may have indeed opened Pandora’s Box with the full China Syndrome meltdown of three reactors and the upcoming ignition of the thousands of tons of highly radioactive spent fuel rods at Fukushima. But this is not a problem, according to the producers of “Pandora’s Promise.”

The show was produced by the nuclear industry, and dutifully broadcast by CNN without any attempt at balance, fairness or accuracy…… Now, with deadly radiation pouring constantly and continuously out of Fukushima, and no conceivable way to stop it, with the Pacific Ocean being destroyed, CNN gives us these absurd declarations:

“No birth defects resulted from the Chernobyl disaster.”

“No American has ever been killed as a result of nuclear energy.”

“Solar power is many time more dangerous than nuclear power.”

“No one living in the exclusion zone near Chernobyl has ever died of cancer or any other diseases because of the radiation.”

“Nuclear energy is the safe solution to global warming.”

Really, it was better than Baghdad Bob, delivered with great videography, beautiful graphics. The outrageous lies in Pandora’s Promise were so absurd as to be humorous. But this is no laughing matter. Fukushima is the worst catastrophe in human history.

Millions of years from now, when the earth’s crust reforms and obliterates the scars and ditritus of our failed time on the planet, a new civilization may detect a layer of abnormally high radioactivity and wonder how the entire planet was so contaminated all at once. Pandora’s Promise.

Japan’s wind energy now supplied from both on and offshore

 Japan is now generating wind energy from offshore turbines  – to add to its existing wind power onshore – (which continued unscathed through the 2011 tsunami.)
Winds of energy independence . Japan Times, 9 Nov 13,  Despite Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s continued push to sell nuclear technology abroad and restart nuclear power plants at home, the Ministry of the Environment together with several leading companies and universities has been quietly developing Japan’s capacity for wind power.  The first deep-water offshore wind turbine started generating power last month off the Goto Islands, Nagasaki Prefecture, and another floating turbine off the coast of Fukushima is set to start operations later this month. Each turbine has an output of 2,000 kilowatts.

AUDIO: Saskatchewan’s Uranium Companies and their Pact with the Devil

Hear-This-wayAUDIO: Pact with the Nuclear Devil: Saskatchewan’s Uranium Companies Derogate Metis Land Rights

Interview with Activist Dale Smith. Global Research News Hour Episode 43

Global Research, November 10, 2013 Length (58:55)

Click to download the audio (MP3 format)

Dale Smith is a Métis resident of Pinehouse, a community in the Boreal forest 500 kilometres north of Saskatoon in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Pinehouse is one of those Northern Saskatchewan communities targeted by the nuclear industry for its proximity to uranium deposits and to a site for the dumping of nuclear waste from Ontario.

In the fall of 2012, news of a Collaboration Agreement between the community of Pinehouse and uranium companies Cameco and Pinehouse began to surface. Community members like Smith became outraged not only by the lack of meaningful consultation, but by the terms of the agreement.
Confidentiality Clause
A summary of the Collaboration Agreement Term Sheet became available to community members at a November 13, 2012 public village meeting. The text directly implies that the village residents would effectively be subjected to a gag order:

Extreme weather events, such as typhoons, to come more often with climate change

climate-changeIPCC chairman: we may “pass on a lousy, spoilt and defiled planet” As Typhoon Haiyan hits the Philippines, Rajendra Pachauri calls for a grassroots movement to put pressure on politicians to act on climate change, Sunday 10 November 2013  The chairman of the United Nations’ climate panel has warned the world to act on global warming to avoid passing “on a lousy, spoilt and defiled planet” to future generations.

Rajendra K Pachauri, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), spoke out as typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines causing hundreds of deaths and widespread destruction.

While Pachauri said it was not possible to blame any single disaster on the steep rise in carbon emissions, the increased frequency of extreme weather events was consistent with scientific predictions.

Speaking in Copenhagen, Pachauri criticised those who claim higher global temperatures would be beneficial to human society. While he said some countries may benefit in the short term, the impacts would be disastrous over time and hit the most marginalised communities.

Pachauri called for a grassroots movement to put pressure on politicians to act and warns that they risk the voters’ wrath if they fail to respond.

To the fossil fuel lobby that is seeking to maintain the status quo, Pachauri gives this message: “It’s the will of the people that will be supreme.”……

Clean, renewable energy is good for the health of our kids

Development of renewable energy good for children 10 Nov 13,  Kate French This week, state lawmakers will meet to continue their review of the environmental and economic impacts of the state’s renewable energy standard. The law, passed in 2005, requires that the state’s investor owned utilities purchase at least 15 percent of their power from new, clean, renewable energy sources by the year 2015. Utilities are now on track to meet that goal, and in the process of complying with the law, the development of new Montana wind and hydro resources has created jobs and cleaned up our environment.

The development of Montana’s abundant renewable resources — like wind, solar and hydro — isn’t just good for our economy; they are also good for our kids’ lungs and hearts. Unlike their dirty fossil fuel counterparts, these energy sources don’t spew toxic pollutants like mercury, nitrogen oxides or sulfur into our air. These pollutants are directly responsible for thousands of cases of asthma, heart disease and other respiratory ailments each year in the U.S. Additionally, because renewable resources are carbon free, they are not contributing to the global climate change crisis. Overall, developing our renewable resources means cleaner air and water for all Montanans.

We can do more. Instead of looking at ways to grant the large corporate power companies more exemptions, state lawmakers should keep their eye on the future by considering an expansion to the RES. I hope you will join me in urging the Energy and Telecommunications Committee to take a step in that direction this week.

Bottom has fallen out of Fukushima’s fishing industry

Fukushima’s fishing industry hit by radiation fears  11 Nov 13,The fishing industry in Fukushima prefecture has been hard hit by the 2011 nuclear disaster and ongoing fears of radiation leaks. It’s now trying to get back to work.

Customers are unwilling to buy seafood from the area even if it has passed official inspections. To ease these concerns, all seafood now has to pass strict radiation inspections before it goes to market.

The local fisherman’s association has set a standard of less than 50 becquerels per kilo. That’s half the government’s limit of 100 becquerels.

Inspectors tested samples from each boat and said they were completely free of radioactive substances.

“All we can do is to carry out strict radiation inspections on the seafood unloaded in the Fukushima area, and to release the results to the public in time,”  said Hisashi Maeda from Iwaki Onahama Fisheries Associations.

“Any products that aren’t inspected will not be put on the market. Only those that pass the inspections can go out. We are doing this in order to win back trust from our customers.”
