REPORT FROM MURATA-SAN Two Messages from Our Correspondent in Japan  09 October 2019 Dear Fucetola-san, It started with the following press report. OSAKA (Kyodo) September 27– Kansai Electric Power Co. said Friday 20 people, including its top executives, received a total of 320 million yen ($3 million) in money and goods over a seven-year period from 2011, from an official of a central Japan town that hosts one of the company’s nuclear power plants.… Read the rest
They Got Away With It: One Man’s Idea For How Those Responsible For Mishandling The Fukushima Disaster Can Pay For Their Mistakes It’s just over five years down the road from the massive, horrific meltdown at power company TEPCO’s Fukushima Daaichi nuclear power plant, releasing radiation into the atmosphere and the ocean, unleashing god knows what long-term effects on the planet, the people and the animals who happen to live here.… Read the rest
Two US Nuke Facilities In Heavily Populated Areas Leaking–Worse Than Fukushima, Some Say The old saying goes: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. But what about three times? Four? A dozen? Where does the shame lie then? That’s the situation facing Americans today, and the corporate media blithely ignores the danger while the leadership fiddles and everyone is on the verge of burning along with Rome.… Read the rest
Hanford Nuclear Storage Facility In Washington State Is Leaking; No Idea How To Fix It There are few threats to humanity so terrifying as our own hubris, especially in the form of the nuclear genie the US let out of the bottle back in 1945. That sickly, poisonous legacy continues: five years after the Fukushima meltdown we are still assessing the toll that disaster had on Japan and the sea surrounding it; 30 years after Chernobyl, we have seen animals and birds returning to a region that has been forever altered.… Read the rest
A Snapshot Of A Post-Disaster Renaissance: 30 Years After Chernobyl It’s obviously a scenario anyone but a madman would dread: dealing with the aftermath of a nuclear accident. Five years after the Fukushima disaster, scientists are still grappling with the long-term consequences. But as horrific as that catastrophe was–and will likely continue to be for generations to come–we do have one other extant example of what the world or at least a small part of it might look like in the wake of a nuclear disaster.… Read the rest
It’s been five years since the Fukushima disaster, and nuclear isotopes are washing up on US shores in increasing amounts. Will India be the next source of nuclear calamity? The nuclear reactor down the street from where you live? When will we learn? When will be compel the Nuclear Industry, world-wide, to develop and use real technologies that can actually clean up the mess once and for all? Take Action Here: http://TinyURL.com/FukushimaHope.
Given that conventional nuclear engineering has nothing to offer the clean-up of what is arguably the most devastating nuclear accident in the history of the planet, unconventional solutions that work are essential. Following a chilling discussion of the real risk levels posed by Fukushima by world-renowned radiation risk expert Dr. Chris Busby, scientists focused on how to deal with the situation as it is and the answers may well astonish you.
National Institutes of Science Notices the Unsurprising: Denied for Decades, Now Confirms: People Living in Areas of High Background Radiation are at Higher Cancer Risk, Downs Syndrome Increased 300%, etc. Why Did It Take Decades? For years, “official’ scientists have insisted that the risk of cancer or birth defects while living in areas with high radiation levels was negligible. In an example of bought-and-paid-for science, they refuted, ignored or distorted the independent and contradictory science that thwarted their assurances that radiation was not bad for you, it was fine for you and in fact, was actually good for you. … Read the rest
