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 little Stalin 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, RINO, communist 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).
A 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 with containment 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.
[Using the Ctrl-F function, ability to readily access this cited email confirms the above.]
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.]
If this isn't enough to "light your Christmas tree," Natural News reports that Professor Michio Aoyama of Japan's Fukushima University Institute of Environmental Radiology predicts that "nearly as much radiation from the Fukushima disaster will have reached the North American West Coast as was initially scattered over Japan during the nuclear explosions" by 2016. Aoyama calculated recently, based on measurements of the rate Cs-137 (Cesium) has been moving toward the east, "that 800 terabecquerels would reach the West Coast of North America by next year." That number, 800 terabecquerels, is almost 80 percent of the 1000 terabecquerels that TEPCO claimed "fell over Japan following the disaster." Since the Fukushima disaster, TEPCO proved to be less than reliable on their facts regarding the seriousness of the problem, which could mean their numbers are "lowballed." With the secrecy act enacted by the Japanese government, the true condition of the Fukushima disaster remains "under wraps" as reporters are punished for disseminating information on the nuclear disaster.
Reports coming out of Japan indicate a 6000 % rise in thyroid cancer in the region since the 2011 disaster. However, the committee reviewing the screenings hesitate to "peg Fukushima radiation as the cause. The committee agreed not to rule out Fukushima radiation since the cases are similar to those observed after the Chernobyl disaster in 1981.
Yet, as Melissa Dykes indicated in her article, US "experts" claim it's perfectly fine to swim in the Pacific Ocean.
In Vancouver, British Columbia, fishermen were reporting "thick blankets of green slime" being pulled up in their nets while the Skeena River sockeye were unusually absent. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans determined the "goo" to be phytoplankton. The DFO credited the decrease in the sockeye "run" to the increased phytoplankton. The low sockeye population has resulted in fishing bans on several Vancouver Island rivers. While University of BC biologist Tony Farrell believes warm water is changing the food chain, one cannot rule out the possibility of radiation from Fukushima that has entered the ocean and landed on the coast.
The State of Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife announced an unprecedented, first ever emergency fishing closures statewide due to salmon appearing to be infected with a gill rot disease. NOAA fisheries biologist Paul Wagner called it "alarming," a "head scratcher" and associated the "die-off" to the disease. ODFW claims, "This is a pretty extreme set of conditions."
A mysterious die-off of whales continues to occur in the Pacific Ocean. In 2013, Ivan Macfadyen declared the seas near Japan dead as he sailed through the waters. Researchers expressed concern over radioactive material "bio-accumulating in fish and marine animals." Seeing as the Fukushima disaster remains uncontained and out of control after four years, bio-accumulation in fish and marine animals grow as contaminated water pours into the Pacific from Fukushima.
Yet, US agencies and the Obama administration remain silent to real dangers and "experts" maintain "it's safe to go into the water" and don't worry about the food coming from contaminated waters as the safe level for radiation was raised. Here's a suggestion for these "experts" -- You first!
Obama, Congress and the various alphabet agencies work diligently to destroy this nation, eradicate God-given rights from citizens, and release criminals into our communities to wreak havoc while performing "dog and pony shows" for entertainment purposes and assisting Iran to achieve nuclear weapons capability. With this busy schedule, no time exists to "work" to help Americans cope with Fukushima radiation contamination of this nation. The contamination cannot be contained and its spread imminent -- nothing can change that. However, Americans deserve to know the extent of the problem, the risks and what measures to take to limit their exposure in order to safeguard themselves and their children as much as possible. Withholding of information on the Fukushima radiation risk by the federal government and the States border on negligence and definitely point to dereliction of duty.
But, it probably doesn't matter to the District of Corruption since Iran will be able to "nuke" the world in a few years so "what difference at this time does it make?"Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
