Japan PM Naoto Kan survives no-confidence vote | RFI

Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan on Thursday survived a no-confidence vote after pledging to step down once the country is firmly on the road to recovery from the 11 March earthquake and nuclear disaster.

The promise to hand over power to a younger generation mollified internal party rebels who had threatened to bring down Kan, the country's fifth premier in as many years, days before his first anniversary in the job.

The motion, brought by the opposition conservative Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and
two small parties, was defeated by a margin of 152 against 293 after most lawmakers of the centre-left ruling party fell into line behind Kan.

Fukushima update: TEPCO admits radiation leaks will continue for at least three more months, maybe longer

Fukushima update: TEPCO admits radiation leaks will continue for at least three more months, maybe longer: "Fukushima update: TEPCO admits radiation leaks will continue for at least three more months, maybe longer"

(NaturalNews) Thanks to an announcement by TEPCO, we now have a "target date" for addressing the radiation leaks from Fukushima. Believe it or not, TEPCO now says it plans to "reduce" the radiation leaking withinthree months. Notice that there is no admitted goal of "ending" the radiation within three months; justreducingit. So a drop in radiation of one percent would qualify as meeting this goal.

This is basically a blatant admission that the radiation leaks are going to continue way beyond 90 days.

TEPCO also says it now plans to cool the spent fuel rods within nine months. They're now basically shooting for the end of the year to try to make this happen. (http://www.usatoday.com/money/topst...)

So what happens if there's another tsunami between now and the end of the year? Fukushima is basically just FUBAR at that point, it seems. Because another tsunami wave would easily just rip out the spent fuel rods and wash the plutonium back into the ocean, unleashing vast amounts of radiation directly into the environment.

Radiation level extremely high in Fukushima — RT

An extremely high radiation level – approximately 4,000 millisieverts per hour – has been detected in the first reactor of the Fukushima nuclear power plant on Saturday.

According to Itar-Tass news agency, the radiation level surge might be caused by a spew of hot steam coming from a damaged pipe in the system; the steam’s temperature reaches 50 degrees Centigrade.

According to the Japanese scientists the normal radiation level emergency crew can be exposed to makes 250 millisieverts per year, and the normal radiation level for a person does not exceed one millisievert per year.

TEPCO representatives were quoted as saying that the data was obtained through a US robot device. At the moment specialists are in the first reactor of the nuclear power plant as the high radiation level aggravates the work of the emergency crew.

Crippled Japan nuclear plant gets tanks for storing radioactive water threatening to overflow - The Washington Post

TOKYO — Tanks for storing radioactive water were on their way Saturday to the crippled nuclear power plant in northeastern Japan where reactor cores melted after the massive earthquake and tsunami.

The new tanks should help prevent further environmental damage in the evacuated area around the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant by providing a secure place to store the contaminated water being used to cool the reactors as workers continue their battle to bring them under control.

At stricken Japanese nuclear plant, water is the biggest worry - The Washington Post


TOKYO — At the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, nothing is more problematic right now than the contaminated water that covers the basement floors, leaks into the environment and endangers any worker who goes near it.

After dousing its reactors for 21 / 2 months in jury-rigged cooling efforts following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, the Tokyo Electric Power Co. must deal with the severe side-effects of that strategy by removing at least 15 million gallons of water — enough to fill the first five floors of the Empire State Building.

SPECIFIC FOODS AND GEOGRAPHIC AREAS OF CONCERN

SPECIFIC FOODS AND GEOGRAPHIC AREAS OF CONCERN

Below is a summary of key areas and food products of highest concern.
We strongly recommend that you do energetic testing of foods from these areas before consuming them to see if they strengthen or weaken you, using
  • Vibrational Radiesthesia, or
  • Kinesiology, or
  • Pulse Diagnosis.

AREAS WHOSE FOOD PRODUCTS MAY NOW CARRY RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT

The Entirety of the Northern Hemisphere around the world is affected by fallout, as well as the Pacific Ocean.

Most Serious:  Japan, Pacific Ocean, and Pacific Rim States

Most Contaminated food areas of North America (based on fallout wind spread patterns charted by European scientific research agencies) in order of likely intensity of contamination, starting with the most contaminated:
  • Entire Pacific Coast (note that much of the produce in North America comes from this region, especially California)
  • Northern U.S. States close to Canada, and Canadian areas close to the U.S. (including Toronto etc.)
  • Eastern States
  • Central States of the U.S., and Far Northern areas of Canada

SAFEST AREAS OF ORIGIN FOR FOOD PRODUCTS

The majority of contamination is in the northern hemisphere and the Pacific Ocean region.  Most of the Southern Hemisphere has little to no fallout (the exception is the Southern Hemisphere in the Pacific; Australia for example is finding radioactive fish in the ocean, so although they may not get much atmospheric fallout they are affected by the massive contamination of the Pacific Ocean.)

Also note that radioactive contamination is being found on non-food products being imported from Japan.

Safest Areas of Origin for food products:
Central America (avoid items from the Pacific Coast area of Mexico)
South America
Africa

Europe is also far less contaminated that North America, although it is also experiencing significant fallout; so it is a better source for products than North America, however not as good as Southern Hemisphere sources.  (However some South American produce may contain high levels of pesticides not allowed to be used in the U.S. or Canada.)


ITEMS OF SPECIAL CONCERN FROM AFFECTED AREAS

Most affected:

All Ocean-Derived Products from the Pacific Ocean: the Fukushima accident dumped millions of times the normal background levels of radiation into the Pacific, where it is affecting the entire ocean (most toxic near Japan and bordering areas, but now reaching to the US West Coast: debris from the Tsunami in Japan is also expected to start washing up on the West Coast in the near future.)  There are already reports of Pacific Fish showing radioactive contamination.
This indicates a need to be cautious regarding:
All Pacific Ocean Fish
Sea Salt or Ocean Minerals derived from the Pacific
All Pacific Seaweed and Sea Vegetables (order Atlantic Ocean seaweed at www.theseaweedman.com )

Milk and all Dairy Products (butter, cheese etc.) from all animals: Cows, Goats, and Sheep (Dairy products have the most intense immediate absorption of radiation from fallout). Radioactive contamination of milk has been found throughout the United States, especially on the West Coast.

Any plant with a large surface area exposed to the air while growing:  The most intense radiation absorption in plants is through rain falling directly on the leaves  of the plant, where it is directly absorbed.  Rainwater absorbed through the earth into the plant is already of much lower radiation intensity due to the filtering affect of the soil.
All broad leaf plants and plants with large surface areas grown in the open air (rather than in greenhouses) are the most contaminated, for instance Salad Greens, Spinach, Cabbage etc.  Contaminated crops in California (carrying radioactive iodine and cesium) have already been confirmed by UC Berkeley.
[Carrots and other root vegetables are less contaminated due to growing underground.]

Water from Rainwater or Open Lake type catchments: instead drink bottled water, or water from underground wells or other underground sources (radiation is greatly reduced when the particles have to travel through the ground.)

PREGNANT (OR BREASTFEEDING) WOMEN AND YOUNG CHILDREN SHOULD ESPECIALLY BE CAREFUL REGARDING THESE ITEMS COMING FROM FALLOUT AFFECTED AREAS



Japan’s radiation contamination spread across Northern Hemisphere

Japan’s radiation contamination spread across Northern Hemisphere.


Vienna - Japan’s crippled Daiichi nuclear facility near Fukushima, hit hard by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, has released radioactive materials that have traveled across the entire Northern Hemisphere, a nuclear monitoring watchdog has reported.
The Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test Treaty Organization (CTBTO) reported on Thursday that within nine days after the accident, the radioactive cloud had crossed North America, an

Radiation travels the nerves from the nose to the brain.

Radiation travels the nerves from the nose to the brain. 
This story was published in 2010, before the Japan issues.

Now it is official. Researchers have shown that uranium oxide, or DU, “travels the nerves from the nose to the brain,” in the words of a University of Chicago doc and researcher.

A tiny amount (a milligram) of this radioactive poison quick marches up your smelling nerves right into your brain and keeps firing 1.2 Million bullets a day – forever. That’s a bunch.

This is a very informative article by writer, Bob Nichols for Veterans Today. It’s dated late 2010, and we hope he will do a new letter for the effects of the Japan radiation ingested or inhaled.

FUKUSHIMA = 2,000 Atomic Bombs | Veterans Today


Killer Contamination Spreads Worldwide Without Opposition


(San Francisco) – Radioactive contamination equivalent to the Fukushima, Japan disaster in terms of the hated “Mushroom Cloud” Atomic Bombs is two thousand (2,000) 500 Kiloton Atomic Bombs.* Each 500kt Atomic Bomb is 33 times bigger than the American Bomb that destroyed Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.

Fukushima: How Many Chernobyls Is It? | Veterans Today


Fukushima Daiichi Equals 50 Plus Chernobyls


As Dr. Michio Kaku, a world renowned CUNY theoretical physicist pointed out on CNN March 18, 2011, Chernobyl involved one reactor and only 57.6 Tons of the reactor core went into the atmosphere. In dramatic contrast, the Fukushima Daiichi disaster immediately involved six reactors and IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency, a UN Agency) documented 2,800 Tons of highly radioactive old reactor cores.

Although this is a month old it shows harmful radiation is reaching as far away as Florida. And with the reactors still burning and its becoming increasingly hard to find new news , it makes you wonder what is going on with the media in their lack of news on such a topic.

Radiation from a crippled nuclear plant in Japan has made its way all the Florida, energy officials say.
