Fukushima Sensationalism and Hoaxes

During the past years and half following the ongoing Fukushima catastrophe I have said it repeatedly many times: 

1. Sensationalism discredit the real gravity of the situation in Fukushima and of the living conditions of the Fukushima victims, it also discredits all the serious Fukushima Watchers and our anti-nuclear cause.
2. It is an insult to truth and to the real victims on location in Fukushima.
3. Fukushima and nuclear do not need any exageration, sensationalism,  the plain truth
as it is, is terrible, horrible enough.
4. Only by spreading the truth, the true facts we can mark solid points against the cover-up of the nuclear lobby and its servile media, only with truth and true facts we can help the Fukushima victims situation to be known, exposed and get them the help they rightfully deserve.
5. Therefore we should oppose both the nuke shills who minimize the truth about Fukushima and nuclear, and the sensationalists who discredit the Fukushima cause to the eyes of the general public with their wild lies about Fukushima. 

 

For four years and half, I have been sharing, circulating information on internet thru 3 blogs and on Facebook on a few groups and pages. 

I have chosen up to now to ignore the rotten apples, but I cannot keep silent anymore when I do witness the harm they are doing to the Fukushima cause and to the anti-nuclear cause with their sensationalism, their repetitive hoaxes, their lack of integrity, of responsibility, their sensationalizing of Fukushima to draw attention so as to milk donations from good people but alas gullible not well informed.

 

 The typical example of those few Youtubers sensationalizing Fukushima for self profit, transforming the Fukushima issue into a personal con-game is a man named Kevin Blanch.

11231809_1151360374891787_7705472463707958079_n

For example last year Kevin Blanch made a video announcing that the spent fuel pool of the reactor 4 at the Nuclear plant of Fukushima Daiichi was on fire and had exploded, that the whole U.S. would be fried by the radiation plume released from that fire and explosion within few days, causing a panic and fear in numbers of people. Of course it was just bull. Another hoax of his, among his countless other lies and hoaxes.

His latest hoax, this year, on August 2015, after Japan restarted its first reactor  at Sendai in Southern Japan on Kyushu Islnd, he took advantage of people’s attention about that restart to announce suddenly that that reactor was having a meltdown. Of course, not basis whatsover for his claim, just another made-up hoax of his. Multiple hoaxes for which during the past 4 years and half he never even once apologized , once those hoaxes in due time were debunked one after the other. Totally unrepentant, and always keeping on doing it.

That scoundrel is making a living from making sensationalism videos about Fukushima on Youtube, full of exaggerations, hyperboles, plain lies, hoaxes, promoting his self-importancy with the sole intent to fool the people about his pretended activism so as to milk donations from them, thus making Fukushima his personal lucrative con-game.

 

I feel sorry for the gullible people that he fools, that he takes advantage of, most of those people certainly well meaning and good hearted. But If only them I would not interfere with his con-game and his preys.

 

But people like him  are robbing those donations from the people who really need it and who really deserve it : The real victims and the real activists on location doing the real job, helping the victims, organizing radiation measuring networks to measure the environment and the foods & beverages of the communities, providing measuring instruments to communities on locations, etc… The people who are crowdfunding,  organizing health recovering spring and summer camps outside of Fukushima for the children of Fukushima in Japan or Hawaii, or in Australia or in various European countries, so that the Fukushima children may leave their daily contaminated environment to replenish their health for a few weeks in a non contaminated environment, to eat also there non-contaminated foods for a few weeks. Those times out are very crucial for the health of those children, for them to be ble to detox their young vulnerable organism, as it was proven before with the children of chernobyl by numerous studies.

 

Those few people like him on Youtube  are not well-meaning citizens wishing to expose the Fukushima situation, to circulate the informations which are not well circulated by the mainstream media due to the nuclear lobby influence and its financial associates, such people are riding the Fukushima catastrophe, as vultures, to the detriment of the real victims and to the detriment of truth, for their own ego and greed.

 

Please people, don’t be victimized by con-men and their glib jive lies.

Spare your donations to help the real victims, and to help the real activists present on location to help the Fukushima victims.

 

From the father of a Fukushima girl.

Best wishes to you all.

    • I am not very impressed by a comment that ends with a threat. I nearly didn’t allow it to be published, for that reason.
      However, it’s an important issue.
      That comment, from Chris Calnan about dunrenard’s article on Fukushima sensationalism, raises a very important matter. I can assure readers that dunrenard is a severe critic of the nuclear industry, and dedicated to exposing its lies. He is in no way ‘in favor of nuclear power’.

      I agree with dunrenard that we must avoid exaggeration and sensationalism in our posts about nuclear power. I am a big supporter of true scientists, like Dr Ken Buesseler, who are independent of government, and rigourously examining the facts – in Beusseler’s case, in a very cautious way. The findings of his research into the effects of radiation on the marine ecology of the Pacific – will NOT be material for the nuclear lobby to use as propaganda against him.

      The effects of the whole nuclear fuel chain are so dangerous, indeed disastrous, that there is no need for exaggeration: that just gives the nuclear lobby ammunition against its critics.

      I have to confess that I, who manage this website, actually don’t know anything about Kevin, and have not read his stuff. The anti-hoax issue is an important one to bring up as a reminder. If people want to stick up for Kevin with their comments on this page, they are welcome to do so, but please, without making threats.

      As for comments ion favour of the nuclear industry – don’t bother. There are plenty of well-paying opportunities for pro nuclear shills on other media.

      • My daughter French-Japanese lives in Iwaki city, Fukushima prefecture, 50 kms South from the nuclear plant of Fukushima Daiichi. Sandra Sagae Courtois, born in Paris in 1982, grown up in Fukushima, 33 years old,unmarried, no children, does not want to give birth anymore by fear of possible tetragenic birth due to radioactive contamination thru her living environment and the contaminated food.
        I have been following the Fukushima catastrophe day and night from the right beginning, and I am very well aware of the real dangers of Fukushima and of nuclear, my own blood and flesh French-Japanese daughter being one of the victims of nuclear in Fukushima, l will therefore continue to fight nuclear until it ends or untill my last breath.
        I am a member of Sortir du Nucléaire France and of Greenpeace France, activist in the real world and on internet.
        I am opposed to all pro-nuclear and their paid shills, but I am also oppose to those irresponsable people who produce hoax after hoax about Fukushima to satisfy their attention-glory-narcissist craving and their donations milking. All those people in different ways are harming the truth, harming our antinuclear cause.
        Nuclear is more than bad, we will only win by exposing its ugly real nature, the true real solid facts. We won’t win by spinning sensationalism or hoaxes, which only become ammunitions for the pro-nuke shills to discredit us and the true dangers of nuclear in the mind of the general public.

  4. About once a year, I go get my ‘vitamin Kev’. It keeps me sceptical, and some fraction of his rantings, is well meaning, but a lot is OTT. I would not send money.

    Is there a list of organisations and individuals to send money to?
    Even if that list had sublists, of dubious people, like Kev, that would help. eg

    https://www.facebook.com/ChernobylChildrenInternational
    http://www.chernobyl-international.com/
    They are Irish based, visit Ukraine, organise heart surgeons, redefine state-care, build and run care homes, assist care-at-home solutions, pay for flights to stay with families, etc Their greatest reward is probably success in what they do, and like reformers of Romanian orphanages, they have made real differences.

    … your list items here …

  5. I notice that the commentary by Hervé Courtois, (D’un Renard),is repeated FOUR times in the comment section . Couldn’t we just have one read from Herve Coutois and delete the repetitions? I also notice that the owner will not stand for any comments that speak in defense of the nuclear energy industry, as apparently anyone who has a favorable view of nuclear energy MUST, by definition, be a paid shill and unworthy of inclusion among these august voices of reason. How democratic of you, Mr Nuclear News owner, a true servant of Justice and Right Thinking. Bravo.

    • To have a favorable view of nuclear energy, you must be either brainwashed by the pro-nuke owned mainstream media, or ignorant of the last 50 years of scientific studies about the numerous harmful effets of radiation on all life, or be a paid pro-nuke troll or shill.
