INTRODUCTION

The World is at a critical crossroads. The Fukushima disaster in Japan has brought to the forefront the dangers of Worldwide nuclear radiation.

The crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war”. In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami:

“This time no one dropped a bomb on us … We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives.”

Nuclear radiation –which threatens life on planet earth– is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities.

While the long-term repercussions of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are yet to be fully assessed, they are far more serious than those pertaining to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, which resulted in almost one million deaths (New Book Concludes – Chernobyl death toll: 985,000, mostly from cancer Global Research, September 10, 2010, See also Matthew Penney and Mark Selden  The Severity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima, Global Research, May 25, 2011)

Moreover, while all eyes were riveted on the Fukushima Daiichi plant, news coverage both in Japan and internationally failed to fully acknowledge the impacts of a second catastrophe at TEPCO’s (Tokyo Electric Power Co  Inc) Fukushima Daini nuclear power plant.

The shaky political consensus both in Japan, the U.S. and Western Europe is that the crisis at Fukushima has been contained.

The realties, however, are otherwise. Fukushima 3 was leaking unconfirmed amounts of plutonium. According to Dr. Helen Caldicott, “one millionth of a gram of plutonium, if inhaled can cause cancer”.  

An opinion poll in May 2011 confirmed that more than 80 per cent of the Japanese population do not believe the government’s information regarding the nuclear crisis. (quoted in Sherwood Ross,Fukushima: Japan’s Second Nuclear Disaster, Global Research, November 10, 2011)

The Impacts in Japan

The Japanese government has been obliged to acknowledge that “the severity rating of its nuclear crisis … matches that of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster”. In a bitter irony, however, this tacit admission by the Japanese authorities has proven to been part of  the cover-up of a significantly larger catastrophe, resulting in a process of global nuclear radiation and contamination:

“While Chernobyl was an enormous unprecedented disaster, it only occurred at one reactor and rapidly melted down. Once cooled, it was able to be covered with a concrete sarcophagus that was constructed with 100,000 workers. There are a staggering 4400 tons of nuclear fuel rods at Fukushima, which greatly dwarfs the total size of radiation sources at Chernobyl.” ( Extremely High Radiation Levels in Japan: University Researchers Challenge Official Data, Global Research, April 11, 2011)

Worldwide Contamination

The dumping of highly radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean constitutes a potential trigger to a process of global radioactive contamination. Radioactive elements have not only been detected in the food chain in Japan, radioactive rain water has been recorded in California:

“Hazardous radioactive elements being released in the sea and air around Fukushima accumulate at each step of various food chains (for example, into algae, crustaceans, small fish, bigger fish, then humans; or soil, grass, cow’s meat and milk, then humans). Entering the body, these elements – called internal emitters – migrate to specific organs such as the thyroid, liver, bone, and brain, continuously irradiating small volumes of cells with high doses of alpha, beta and/or gamma radiation, and over many years often induce cancer”. (Helen Caldicott, Fukushima: Nuclear Apologists Play Shoot the Messenger on Radiation, The Age,  April 26, 2011)

While the spread of radiation to the West Coast of North America was casually acknowledged, the early press reports (AP and Reuters) “quoting diplomatic sources” stated that only “tiny amounts of radioactive particles have arrived in California but do not pose a threat to human health.”

“According to the news agencies, the unnamed sources have access to data from a network of measuring stations run by the United Nations’ Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization. …

… Greg Jaczko, chair of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, told White House reporters on Thursday (March 17) that his experts “don’t see any concern from radiation levels that could be harmful here in the United States or any of the U.S. territories”.

Public Health Disaster. Economic Impacts

What prevails is a well organized camouflage. The public health disaster in Japan, the contamination of water, agricultural land and the food chain, not to mention the broader economic and social implications, have neither been fully acknowledged nor addressed in a comprehensive and meaningful fashion by the Japanese authorities.

Japan as a nation state has been destroyed. Its landmass and territorial waters are contaminated. Part of the country is uninhabitable. High levels of radiation have been recorded in the Tokyo metropolitan area, which has a population of  39 million (2010) (more than the population of Canada, circa 34 million (2010)) There are indications that the food chain is contaminated throughout Japan:

Radioactive cesium exceeding the legal limit was detected in tea made in a factory in Shizuoka City, more than 300 kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Shizuoka Prefecture is one of the most famous tea producing areas in Japan.

A tea distributor in Tokyo reported to the prefecture that it detected high levels of radioactivity in the tea shipped from the city. The prefecture ordered the factory to refrain from shipping out the product. After the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, radioactive contamination of tea leaves and processed tea has been found over a wide area around Tokyo. (See 5 More Companies Detect Radiation In Their Tea Above Legal Limits Over 300 KM From Fukushima, June 15, 2011)

Japan’s industrial and manufacturing base is prostrate. Japan is no longer a leading industrial power. The country’s exports have plummeted. The Tokyo government has announced its first trade deficit since 1980.

While the business media has narrowly centered on the impacts of power outages and energy shortages on the pace of productive activity, the broader issue pertaining to the outright radioactive contamination of the country’s infrastructure and industrial base is a “scientific taboo” (i.e the radiation of industrial plants, machinery and equipment, buildings, roads, etc). A report released in January 2012 points to the nuclear contamination of building materials used in the construction industry, in cluding roads and residential buildings throughout Japan.(See  FUKUSHIMA: Radioactive Houses and Roads in Japan. Radioactive Building Materials Sold to over 200 Construction Companies, January 2012)

A “coverup report” by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (May 2011), entitled Economic Impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Current Status of Recovery  presents “Economic Recovery” as a fait accompli. It also brushes aside the issue of radiation. The impacts of nuclear radiation on the work force and the country’s industrial base are not mentioned. The report states that the distance between Tokyo -Fukushima Dai-ichi  is of the order of 230 km (about 144 miles) and that the levels of radiation in Tokyo are lower than in Hong Kong and New York City.(Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Current Status of Recovery, p.15). This statement is made without corroborating evidence and in overt contradiction with independent radiation readings in Tokyo (se map below). In recent developments, Sohgo Security Services Co. is launching a lucrative “radiation measurement service targeting households in Tokyo and four surrounding prefectures”.

A map of citizens’ measured radiation levels shows radioactivity is distributed in a complex pattern reflecting the mountainous terrain and the shifting winds across a broad area of Japan north of Tokyo which is in the center of the of bottom of the map.”

“Radiation limits begin to be exceeded at just above 0.1 microsieverts/ hour blue. Red is about fifty times the civilian radiation limit at 5.0 microsieverts/hour. Because children are much more sensitive than adults, these results are a great concern for parents of young children in potentially affected areas.

SOURCEScience Magazine

The fundamental question is whether the vast array of industrial goods and components “Made in Japan” — including hi tech components, machinery, electronics, motor vehicles, etc — and exported Worldwide are contaminated? Were this to be the case, the entire East and Southeast Asian industrial base –which depends heavily on Japanese components and industrial technology– would be affected. The potential impacts on international trade would be farreaching. In this regard, in January, Russian officials confiscated irradiated Japanese automobiles and autoparts in the port of Vladivostok for sale in the Russian Federation. Needless to say, incidents of this nature in a global competitive environment, could lead to the demise of the Japanese automobile industry which is already in crisis.

While most of the automotive industry is in central Japan, Nissan’s engine factory in Iwaki city is 42 km from the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Is the Nissan work force affected? Is the engine plant contaminated? The plant is within about 10 to 20 km of the government’s “evacuation zone” from which some 200,000 people were evacuated (see map below).

  1. Was Fukushima sabotaged by the Freemasonic Luciferian Zionists?

    And was Hiroshima an attempt to psychologically traumatise humanity?

    http://henrymakow.com/2013/08/Hiroshima-Another-Illuminati-Psy-Op.html

  2. DrK, according to former NSA analyst, Jim Stone, he thinks the Israel security company for Fukushima had some sort of triggering device desguised as CCTV cameras in or near the reactor core which caused the hydrogen explosion.
    Reactor 4 also exploded in exactly the same way as the other 3 reactors even though it had no fuel and was not operational. The smoking gun like Tower 7 on 9/11.
    He also says that there was no magnatude 9.0 earthquake in Japan that day because (A) he checked the Japanese seismographic records and (B) there were no buildings, bridges or roads damaged prior to the tsunami.

    • He is right about the absolute lack of quake damage to buildings. What needs to be configured, now, is if there any hard evidence of the actual detonation of a nuclear or trench nuclear device for the expressed purpose of sabotage, plus actual links and evidence pointing to communications between Japan and Islamic Iran, RE: fuel enrichment.

      An extremist, Zionist act is plausible. Strong evidence is needed to build the case. Thxs.

  3. sorry for contradict you but the wind can’t move the radiation…

    • I was wrong when I told you “no.” Apologies for being so quick and curt. Curious: why did you ask? What you said seems to be correct. How did you know?

  7. The suspicion came to my mind because of the way the pages were cluttered up by sometimes even 3 or 4 of the same that contained so many links and it was even much more than free advertisement. It was to put off the visitors.

    It is all about seeking the truth and dispelling the truth and thanks to this and other websites that do this great work!

  13. Jews themselves are acting as fake Al Qaeda Muslims aimed at deceiving the world in order to continue the fake war on terror (which is the excuse to go after the Muslims and Muslim countries and to set up the police state in the US and European countries to terrorize Whites and various minorities living in those countries) as well as to profit from the fraudulent Zionist business known as “Counter Terrorism”.

  17. This was the message I sent out which Zionist Google blocked!

    Why was it so threatening to the Zionists?

    Global Research exposes the real truth about Zionist owned New York times!

    The US Truth Movement is infiltrated by Zionist agents and trolls and certain websites while dispensing 80 to 90% of truth most of the time can resort to Zionist propaganda amounting to at least 10 to 20%. Some do this because Mossad is pointing a gun to their head and not because they are hateful or they want to be deceitful and others do it due to the fear that Zionist will murder them or destroy their families and/or their livelihood or simply to earn a better living.

    And some do it because they are hateful and deceitful and they are 100% Zionist backed and these websites and people who run them provide 100% controlled opposition and they are America hating, White hating Zionist agents who (1) act as “anti-Israel” friends of Muslims or (2) act as pro-White friends of American Patriots and America’s Constitutitution. Both these groups are infiltrators who are doing the bid for the Zionists while sabotaging the interests of White people and other patriotic minorities, Christians as well as Muslims.

    The two websites that have been proven as 100% Zionist run who continue to deceive White people as well as Muslims are the websites: “The Ugly Truth” run by the Zionist agent Mark Glenn and “The American Press” owned by a Zionist lawyer who was a former CIA and run by Michael Collins Piper who calls himself a journalist.

    It was an individual known as Professor James Fetzer who really exposed these two people Mark Glenn and Michael Collins Piper as being fraudulent which was a huge service to the community of honest truth seekers and to the truth itself. Although I disagree with Professor Fetzer on certain things what he did to expose these two people is some thing to be admired.

    When it comes to Zionist infiltration there are still some people and websites we can trust 100% because they are not for sale. Philip Giraldi, Ted Pike, Grant Smith, Karen Tostado and the Nodisinfo website are such examples.

    Nodisinfo is the ultimate website for the un-compromised truth with regard to the past events as well as ongoing Zionist terror or Zionist hoaxes and the website that has no agenda other than exposing the worst threat to mankind.
