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

USA’s government ignoring the continuing disaster of Fukushima

Fukushima Continues Out of Control – Obama Silent on Risks, DC Clothesline – #Airing Out America’s Dirty Laundry”  July 28, 2015 by Suzanne Hamner  The propaganda “ministry” of the federal government works feverishly and incessantly to focus attention on “issues” they design in order to keep Americans from investigating issues that pose real threats to the citizenry. It’s a well-oiled machine that Joseph Goebbels and Joseph Stalin would envy since it is from the Goebbels and Hitler model, with a littleStalin thrown in, this administration copied and perfected. To further confuse the public and keep emotions stirred, dog and pony shows occur in both chambers of Congress to the point it becomes hard to tell the difference between Republican, Democrat, GOP establishment, liberal, RINOcommunist and socialist.

Despite the attempt to redirect attention away from the important issues to “contrived” ones, reports surface daily indicating multiple crises are imminent. One can almost guarantee the US government agencies, politburo (Senate and House), and the Liar-in-Chief are clueless as to action to be taken, if any can be taken at all, to quell the coming tide. Case in point remains the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant disaster of March 2011.

In April 2015, Melissa Dykes reported the media propaganda arm of the administration pushed the idea that radiation from Fukushima was “low risk” and “you could swim in the ocean for six hours every day for a year and receive a dose more than a thousand times less than a dental x-ray.” Melissa called “BS” then, as did the rest of us, and continuing reports coming out of Japan indicate the media, controlled by this administration, is lying. However, what’s a little radiation that could kill millions when that “racist” Confederate Battle Flag is stirring up trouble and sodomites are denied rights (rolls eyes).

presentation by Fairewinds Chief Engineer and nuclear expert Arne Gundersen claims there is plenty to generate concern. The catastrophe is far from over despite the Japanese Government and Tokyo Electric Power Company push to decommission the Fukushima plant in 30 years. The closest cousin to the Fukushima disaster remains Chernobyl in Ukraine. The government there is waiting close to 100 years to decommission Chernobyl. Why the rush on Fukushima? The answer is more about politics and money than science.

According to Gundersen, problems exist at Fukushima that will last decades.

  • Three of the nuclear cores at Fukushima Daiichi are in direct contact with groundwater, a problem “nuclear power designers and engineers never anticipated.
  • Units 1, 2, and 3 were destroyed allowing the formation of holes and cracks; which withcontainment units breached, groundwater is allowed to come in contact with the nuclear cores.
  • 23,000 tanker truckloads of radioactive water have leaked into the Pacific Ocean” with groundwater continuing to leak in and out at a rate “at least 300 tons per day;” so far more than 1500 days have passed and no end is in sight.
  • The ice wall is a complete failure meaning Cesium, Strontium and Plutonium from Fukushima will bleed into the Pacific for decades due to unmitigated groundwater flow.
  • Constraints of the press by the Japanese government’s secrecy act continue to hide the full human, financial and environmental costs of the disaster.
  • Levels of Strontium-90 concentrations outside the destroyed plant spiked 1000 % in three months from April 2015 to July 2015.

According to Natural News:

Censored and heavily redacted emails [PDF] from US government scientists and officials reveal that there were major concerns among American policymakers shortly after the devastating Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster in March 2011 that there would be widespread radiological contamination and spikes in thyroid cancer rates.

“I would like to raise another issue which now merits expeditious, near term action. There is a short time window … during which it will remain possible to … measure I-131 that members of the public may have ingested,” said an email sent to John Holdren, senior adviser to Pres. Obama on science and technology, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, DOE/NRC officials, and others whose names were redacted on March 23, 2011, 12 days after the disaster on March 11, according to a recently released trove of email documents, per a Freedom of Information Act request.

“Collecting this data … would be very valuable,” said the email.

Nuclear science experts were clearly concerned that radioactive fallout from the disaster would not merely spread to the US West Coast but cause a spike in thyroid cancer rates there, as well — though none of those concerns were publicized by reports or expressed publicly by the Obama administration at the time[Emphasis mine.]………..http://www.dcclothesline.com/2015/07/28/fukushima-continues-out-of-control-obama-silent-on-risks/
