Radiation & Strontium detected far from Fukushima- Will Canada take fuel rods? Fukushima Melt-throughs reported to IAEA

Worse then ever

Japan adds 4 new areas to radiation threats

Four new areas in northern Japan have been added to the list of places affected by radiation originating from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, authorities said Friday.

Three of the four are in the Ryozenmachi area, including about 180 households, 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the Fukushima plant,

Government data of the three hot spots showed an estimated radiation level between 20.1 to 20.8 millisieverts per year.

By comparison, the average resident of an industrialized country receives a dose of about 3 millisieverts per year.

The fourth spot is in the Haramachi neighborhood of Minamisoma, 33 kilometers away from the plant but outside of the area

Residents are getting almost 7 times the amount of yearly radiation

Strontium detected 62 km's from Fukushima # 1 plant

Radioactive strontium have been detected in soil at 11 locations in Fukushima Prefecture, including the city of Fukushima 62 km from the crippled nuclear power plant
-54 becquerels of strontium-89 per kg were detected in soil collected in the city of Fukushima on April 27.
-1,500 becquerels of strontium per kg, was detected in soil collected May 6 in the town of Namie, 24 km northwest of the nuclear plant.
-1,000 becquerels of strontium per kg in the village of Iitate, 220 becquerels in the town of Kawamata and 30 becquerels in the town of Hirono.

Strontium tends to accumulate in bones and is believed to cause bone cancer and leukemia.

For the Canadians!
Will Canada take Fukushima's radioactive rods?

Shimatsu also indicates that past backroom uranium deals may have left Canadian politicians susceptible both to bribes and leverage Japan could exert by threatening to name who took graft. He writes:

...Canadian politicians are bound to opportunistically oppose the return of depleted uranium since any shipments from Fukushima would be met by a massive turnout of "not-in-my-backyard" protesters. The only way for Tokyo to convince the local politicos to go along quietly is by threatening to publish an online list of the bribe-takers in parliament who had earlier backed uranium mining on behalf of the Japanese interests.

Arnie Gundersen Interview (Part II): Protecting Yourself If The Situation Worsens

Friday, June 3, 2011
Interview and Transcript, worth a listen, especially for those on the west coast

- This just keeps getting worse and worse
Japan is admitting 3 nuclear melt-throughs!! That is three of them!

"An official report, which Japan will submit to the UN's nuclear watchdog, says nuclear fuel in three reactors at Fukushima has possibly melted through the pressure vessels and accumulated in outer containment vessels.

Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper says this "melt-through" is far worse than a core meltdown, and is the worst possibility in a nuclear accident."

There is more-Guardian
Fuel rods have probably breached containment vessels – a more serious scenario than core meltdown x 3.

Molten nuclear fuel in three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant is likely to have burned through pressure vessels, not just the cores.

It is the first time Japanese authorities have admitted the possibility that the fuel suffered "melt-through" – a more serious scenario than a core meltdown.

The report, which is to be submitted to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said fuel rods in reactors No 1, 2 and 3 had probably not only melted, but also breached their inner containment vessels and accumulated in the outer steel containment vessels.

The report includes an apology to the international community for the nuclear crisis – the world's worst since Chernobyl in 1986 – and expresses "remorse that this accident has raised concerns around the world about the safety of nuclear generation".

An apology isn't going to cut it.

There is no such thing as safe nuclear generation. Nor clean , green or carbon free nuclear generation. So just cut the bullshit!

All of a sudden China Syndrome doesn't sound so "hypothetical"

"In 1971, nuclear physicist Ralph Lapp used the term China syndrome to describe a possible burn-through, following a loss of coolant accident of the reactor containment structures and the subsequent escape of radioactive material into the environment. His statements were based on the report of a task force of nuclear physicists headed by W. K. Ergen, published in 1967"


  1. If not Canada, the Global Research article mentions Australia!

    How about israel? I believe there is quite a secure basement under the Knesset.

  2. Nope, not mentioned James.
    Canada is mention because it is so sparsely populated, oh and graft of course, graft!

  3. I imagine Harper would gladly accept these things if his Chabad masters tell him to do it.

    Canadians are SO GODDAM complacent it is embarrassing... our government does not ask, does not tell, it just does...

    Harper has a tight tight rather Zionist type hold on the media here and he could get away with it if he got NWO brownie points, or perhaps a nice bone to chew on.

    We may have lots of space but so does Russia, or China, or America. A few more rods would make little difference in their South West where they do all the bomb testing.

    How about Bimini that is already ruined.. or Chernobyl?

    And how about abandoning nuclear power altogether?

    As for the Japanese government and Tepco, they prove corruption is indeed to the bone. I imagine to be honest nowhere there is safe any longer. Time to evacuate that little island....

  4. Noor, I am not going to disagree with anything you said.

    Canadians are complacent and I would add dumbed down and lazy to that.

    Harper is owned by his zionist lobby masters.

    I am still scratching my head over the election....
    A majority?
    And the spinning on Libya has me cringing lately!

  5. I can't say I'm familiar with either party in this interview, but I found it at

    "in April, the average person in Seattle breathed in 10 hot particles a day"

    "The average human being breathes about 10 [cubic] meters a day of air... And the air out in the Seattle area are detecting, when they pull 10 cubic meters through them... That air filter will have 10 hot particles on it"

    "If Unit Four were to topple, I would close my windows, turn the air conditioner on, replace the filters frequently, damp mop, put a HEPA filter in the house and try to avoid as much of the hot particles as possible"

    "Canadians are complacent and I would add dumbed down and lazy to that." -Oh come now ladies, my neighbors to the north, let's not invite a bragging contest. <g>

  6. Hey Blammo!

    good interview, well worth the 20 minutes and good god could you imagine if #4 topples??!!!


    "Oh come now ladies, my neighbors to the north, let's not invite a bragging contest."


    I have heard Arnie Gunderson previously, but, I don't know the other fellow at all.

  7. Heck, the USA would probably take the uranium and turn it into DU rounds which they'll use to bring 'freedom and democracy' to Arabs and Muslims by blsting them to smithereens.

  8. and yet we see headlines like this:

    june 6, two workers overexposed. ?

    really?? are you absolutely sure??

    it is completely surreal how they have been able to downplay this.

  9. Greg:

    freedom and democracy at the tip of a missile.

    A DU tipped missile.
    What a sick world

  10. Hey AP it is completely surreal the coverage in western msm

    I'll give some credit over to the brits who have been doing a bit better.

    As for the US/Canada conglomeration of media misinformation????
    What you don't know can hurt you and it seems as if these idiots are trying to kill us all!

    Oh wait..... Never mind.

  11. roger that Pen.

    WV: chemogl

    rhymes with Chernobyl. gotta love those booger gremlins.

  12. Hey Penny,

    "Steady streams of smoke/steam out of the Reactors 3 and 4 suddenly started to engulf the entire reactor complex at Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant." link

    I have to admit something about that video looks a little unnatural me. The cloud moves so fast at around the half-way mark, I have doubts as to its authenticity. If it's real, it's pretty unsettling, but, situation normal I guess.

    Infinite Unknown also has some (long) RT interviews with Gunderson about the Nebraska plant. I haven't watched them, I just scan the headlines. I think that the fact that they're protecting a fucking nuclear power plant with sand bags is about all one needs to know.

    Thx Pen.
