As Fukushima continues to spew radiation and the North American msm continues to cover it up for their corporate masters. Here is a bit of the latest news.
Dangerous radiation spreads 40 km from damaged nuke plant
A long-lasting radioactive element has been measured at levels that pose a long-term danger at one spot 40 kilometers from the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Station, raising questions about whether Japan’s evacuation zone should be expanded and whether the land might need to be abandoned.
The isotope, cesium 137, was measured in one village by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) at a level exceeding the standard that the Soviet Union used as a gauge to recommend abandoning land surrounding the Chernobyl reactor.
I will repeat that.
The isotope, cesium 137 was measured at a level that EXCEEDED the standard the Soviet Union used as a gauge to recommend land abandonment around the Chernobyl reactor.
The same isotope was measured at another location at more than double the Soviet standard.
Cesium persists in the environment for centuries, losing half its strength every 30 years.
The measurements were made between March 18 and March 26
Which makes the measurements a week old! What are the measurements today?
Japan, experts noted, is far more densely settled than the Chernobyl region of Ukraine
More people, more deaths.
The IAEA, using a measure of radioactivity called the becquerel, found as much as 3.7 million becquerels per square meter; the standard used at Chernobyl was 1.48 million becquerels.
In other words, in the future, this area surrounding Fukushima will become a desolate radioactive wasteland.
What about the Sea?
The increases raise the possibility that contaminants from the plant are continuously leaking into the sea, Nishiyama said.
GE is the fourth largest company in the U.S. It had profits totaling $14.2 billion. Yet, despite this, it claimed a rebate of $3.2 billion dollars. What gives ?
They are unconcerned about liability. Really, why would they be? Governments the world over bend over for banks and corporations and stick the knife in the back of the people..... or cover up the radiation poisoning of the environment and the planet.
