Japan's ex PM feared uninhabitable Tokyo -Fukushima update

What does Kan know that would cause him to have these thoughts?

Japan's former premier Naoto Kan feared Tokyo would be rendered uninhabitable by the Fukushima nuclear crisis, he said in an interview published on Tuesday in which he recalled the 'spine-chilling' thought.
He added it would have been 'impossible' to evacuate all of the 30 million people in the event of a mass exclusion zone encompassing Tokyo

Are these the thoughts of an irrational man?
Or are these thoughts borne out of an access to information and knowledge that the general public is not allowed to know?
One has to wonder?

And the multiple problems with Fukushima rage on.
Of course you would never know it, judging by the mainstream media.
Just like nothing is going on...
So here are a couple of the latest news stories
Tepco to build wall off Fukushima Daiichi Plant

The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant plans to build an iron wall on the ocean side of the plant to prevent radioactive water from leaking into the sea. Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) said more than 110,000 tons of highly radioactive water remains in the basements of reactor buildings at the plant.
The utility will use thousands of iron pipes to create an 800-meter-long wall surrounding the water intakes of 4 reactor facilities, NHK Japan's website reported.

Don't know if or how well this will work out?

Additionally there is a problem with tons of radioactive waste just piling up!

Growing piles of contaminated sewage, located hundreds of kilometers from Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown, are loaded with high levels of radiactive cesium, and the government has yet to come up with a policy for the country's latest crisis. Tons of alarmingly high levels of radioactive cesium are being reported at a sewage treatment facility in Saitama, located more than 150 miles southwest of Fukushima, site of the triple nuclear meltdown last March after a devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Japan currently has more than a dozen sewage treatment plants currently faced with the same predicament and the government has yet to institute a policy in dealing with the quickly growing problem.

A Japanese delegation has headed to Chernobyl

A Japanese delegation will visit the ill-fated Chernobyl nuclear plant to study its experience in clean-up operations, speaker of Japan's House of Representatives Takahiro Yokomichi said here.

The Japanese delegation wants to have first-hand information about the situation at the Chernobyl plant and to learn whatever lessons possible to prevent any such accidents, and to make use of Ukraine's experience in the clean-up operations after the accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant, Yokomichi said yesterday.

Interesting article from a few days ago... Why Fukushima is worse then Chernobyl

"Japan has been slow to admit the scale of the meltdown. But now the truth is coming out."

While it is true that Japan has been very, very slow to admit the scale of meltdown, it is highly unlikely the "truth" is now forthcoming.

The fact of the matter is the radiation from Fukushima, that virtually covers the planet, is to dam hard to hide!

Jet stream air currents flowing across the Pacific Ocean from Japan resulted in the U.S. receiving a steady flow of radiation.

U.S. labs detected radiation from Fukushima in our air, precipitation, milk, drinking water, fruits, and vegetables. Airborne radioactive particles were detected in U.S. soil. Broad-leaf vegetables including spinach and kale are accumulating radiation from rain and dust. In California, spinach, arugula, wild-harvested mushrooms, and strawberries tested positive for cesium 134 and 137. Comprehensive testing of imports is imperative. Even tea and cows in Japan are highly radioactive.

When radiation is in milk, the entire food supply is at risk. One month after Japan's nuclear disaster started, radiation showed up in California milk. Milk sold in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts, Arizona, Arkansas, Vermont and Washington also tested positive for radiation. In Hawaii, it was detected 2,033 percent above drinking water safety limits.


  1. They're pissing in the wind. How do they plan to keep the radioactive water from seeping into the ocean from beneath the reactor?

    They should of covered it in concrete in the beginning, like Chernobyl, but it's a bit too late for that.

  3. First comment deleted due to dodgy english.

    Thanks for all the updates on the Fukushima situation Penny, as you say, the mainstream news is very quiet on any of this.

    I agree with Greg, the Japanese were way too slow on this but also help from around the world was slow too. These are situations that affect us globally so a quick global response would have been helpful.

    I think it has been madness to build so many nuclear power stations around the world in places prone to large earthquakes. Nuclear power has always been a bad idea on small islands and is not a very good idea anywhere else. Many of the reactors are now getting old, they should be closed down and cleaned up.

  4. hey Greg:

    I have my doubts the wall will be effective.

    I don't think encasement would work either.

    To low. the meltdowns will make their way to the water.

  5. Hey John:

    dodgy english :)

    I try to keep an eye on Fukushima because it is really important and has never got the coverage it should have. It has got the cover up, but not the coverage.

    "I think it has been madness to build so many nuclear power stations around the world in places prone to large earthquakes. Nuclear power has always been a bad idea on small islands and is not a very good idea anywhere else."

    I agree. And as long as business, is well in the business of maximizing profits and cutting costs, which means cutting important corners, the nuclear industry will never be safe or viable for the planet.
    Nor is it clean and green, which annoys me to no end, when the global warming believers make that claim.

    It is good for nuclear weapons and that is why it has proliferated.

  6. It's sorts funny . . . in a bad way. Always with the misdirection, even in the few articles that cover the Fukushima meltdowns.

    As if some escaping radioactive seawater going out to sea is an issue that compares with the issue of that radioactive water being beside/underneath the MILLIONS OF HUMANS living there!!! Or the constant and steady elevated radiation levels being emitted still from the site of the disaster?!? How about that for concern #1?

    No, we should be concerned about some radioactive seawater going out to the ocean where it will be . . . what . . . diluted by the mass of the ocean, and potentially kill a few fish?

    It really is beautiful how they try to make you care about that which doesn't matter, to misdirect you from what does matter, which is never mentioned, of course.

    Watch the Japanese cancer rates skyrocket in the future. Watch the cancer rates rise on the west coast of the US and southern Canada.

    Watch the media concentrate on building seawalls to save some fish from radiation.

  7. Penny I apologize this has nothing to do with the subject but I have heard that china has soldiers stationed in Mexico preparing for a invasion on U.S soil. Maybe you can bring truth to this matter.

    Thank you

  8. slozo:

    sorry I missed your commentary :(

    sometimes, due to life in general, i miss stuff

    I worry about the cancer rates etc.,
    The government of canada and US have said nothing about the radioactivity the population is being inundated with.

    But, then what can one really expect?

  9. anonymous:

    "I have heard that china has soldiers stationed in Mexico preparing for a invasion on U.S soil."

    This is news to me, completely.
    If you have some links or some information on this topic it might be helpful?

    As of this moments this is the first I have heard of it

  10. I'm sorry no links on chinese soldiers in mexico subject but can easily be found if googled.

  11. hey anonymous!

    I took the time to look at what was available at this time.

    Not only are the troops on the south border, they are alleged to be on the Northern border, in Canada.

    In the south it is Texas, in the North no mention of location.
    (which province the troops are massing in)

    The entire story seems to emanate from the account of one trucker..

    It looks too speculative, too unsubstantiated for now.

    Also keeping in mind the US is on a major demonization campaign of China, with an intent to encircle and eventually attack them..
    I have covered that previously on the blog.

    Unless more information comes to light, for myself, this seems not very likely.

  12. Thank you penny for your time and research. I did not mean to waste your time but I had to find out the truth from a reliable source. Such a thought sends chills thrue my spine since I live just north of Juarez Mexico. Thank you again keep up the great work.

  13. Hi anonymous:
    You didn't waste my time.
    If I wasn't interested I would not have looked into it.

    I am just north of the US, literally just north of the US, in Canada.
    I haven't noticed anything going on in this neck of the woods?

    One more point I want to bring up, one you may be aware of, or not?
    There is a narrative that the US is trying to bring Mexico down...
    Quite frankly the success in destroying that nation is noticeable already.

    I wondered if this story is one to justify further intervention in Mexico???

    Or a distraction from this?

    Thinking of the story about the guns and Mexico "Fast and furious"



    there is lots out there on that story

    I can understand why this (chinese troops) would cause concern for you. It is a scary thought, to be invaded..

  14. Wow! I noticed all he chaos going on in mexico. I have family members who live in Juarez and have been killed for trying to better themselfs in a sober house. Cartels responsible for the hit.One thing that makes ponder at night, what is ur goverment

  15. One thing that makes me ponder at night what is our government gaining from all this chaos?

    Order from chaos
    and distraction

    Keep in mind he who creates the chaos can create the order.
    This is evident aplently in the so called Arab spring.

    The chaos also serves as an excellent tool of distraction.
