April 10 - Plutonium and Uranium Detected

"...We had assumed that since the IAEA is an international organization, it would have the most honest report, but that doesn't appear to be the case. What you're reading took numerous hours of research over many days to discover the theoretical timeline of Plutonium radioactive isotope leakage at the Fukushima Daiichi facility.."

Hiding From Shame, Addicted To Optimism: The Tyranny Of Our Collective Comfort Zones  - by Phil Rockstroh

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article27859.htm

"The technologies that inflicted upon the world the ongoing tragedies in both the Gulf of Mexico and Japan serve a dangerous addiction, an addiction to blind optimism, a habituation of mind that allows us to dwell within provisional comfort zones but renders vast spaces of the world into deathrealms.

After each catastrophe, there ensues a scramble to contain the damage leveled, as, concurrently, the apologists of the present system explain the anomalous nature of the event. Yes, this much should be obvious. Attempting to clean up the mess, after it occurs, as opposed to altering the way of life that incurs the damage, is analgous to an addict believing a few days detox will serve as a solution to his addiction..

Apropos, a school of thought has developed in which framing the perception of a catastrophe supersedes all other considerations..."

The Delusion of Planetary Stewardship - 'Green' Nuclear Power - From Fukushima to Al Gore On Chernobyl and All Points in Between:

"...As officials admitted there may be too much radioactive water to pump out of the damaged power plant...If we multiply the 20,000 tonnes of contaminated water from reactor 2 alone, by 4, for the 4 reactors that are in various stages of meltdown along with their spent fuel rods, we get 80,000 tonnes of radioactive water that TEPCO, IAEA, the Japanese government et al, have no plan for.

Trials Of Globalization: And We All Melt Down  -  by Betsy Ross

http://thiscantbehappening.net/node/550

"We are now on the brink of the mother of all meltdowns in more ways than one. Last weekend, The Times quoted Allan Hansen, a nuclear engineer and executive vice president of Areva NC, a unit of Areva, a French group that supplied reactor fuel to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, who spoke before a private gathering at Stanford University.

'Clearly,' he summarized, 'we're witnessing one of the greatest disasters in modern times.' What the ongoing release of cancer-causing radioactive fragments means in terms of human health and the environment is only beginning to come to light. It's certainly not my expertise.

What I do know, is that on top of the terrible calamities brought on by the tsunami and the scary portents of the radiation spewing into the air, the ocean and into the ground surrounding Fukushima and beyond, we are facing an economic juggernaut...You don't take out the world's third biggest economy - until recently, the second - with no impact..."

Japan's Unfolding Nuclear Disaster...

http://www.maydaymagazine.ca/issues/april-2011/item/153-japans-unfolding...?

"...Daiichi is not a nuclear reactor, it is six. Chernobyl held about 180 tons of nuclear fuel, Fukushima holds 560 tons of fuel and 1700 tons of still dangerous spent fuel in on-site storage, so the potential exists for the worst nuclear disaster to date. When talking with people about the issue of nuclear power, I find the most persuasive argument is ultimately the simplest, requiring no understanding of science whatsoever.

Simply look closely at France, the only locale on the planet more currently dependent on nuclear energy than Ontario, and look at neighbouring Germany which has more renewable energy per capita than any other country on earth..."

Noah_Scape

Thanks for all the work you did NDPP.

    I heard today that the head of TEPCO said that they will have the reactors stabilised in "six to nine months". That is a lot of daily doses of radiation for people on the west coast of N.A. .

   An earlier question was "are we in BC being told of the radiation threat?". A quote from one of the posts above gives a clue:

 "...Health Canada initially detected on March 18 that some radioactive material had travelled thousands of kilometres from Japan to Canada's west coast. It was forced to issue a news release on Tuesday after opposition members raised the matter in the Ontario legislature during Question Period.

France Gelinas, health critic for the New Democrats, asked if gov't officials were testing the province's milk supply for radiation levels. Energy Minister Brad Duguid accused Ms Gelinas of 'fearmongering' and did not answer the question."

... and this radioactive poisoning from Fukushima is a steady flow day after day with no end in sight."

- end quote -

  Getting this vital information is like pulling teeth rather than getting an honest appraisal of the situation.

There won't be room for deniability if we are getting carcinogenic doses. The evidence will be an increase in cancers.

 

Remember, any amount of radiation causes cells to mutate, it is just that higher doses increase the number of mutated cells.

You're right Noah, ...another quote that rocked me was that 'France is the only locale on the planet more currently dependent on nuclear energy than Ontario'. Latest word is a majority of French want Nuclear gone. As with most things of critical importance, the response in Canada is largely to just avert the eyes and pretend it isn't happening.

there is some decent ongoing modelling of the nuclear poisoning coming our way at:

The information regarding Govt. Canada's monitoring through Fixed Point Surveillance has been removed from Govt. Canada's website. All that I could find was a cached page with British Columbia's levels from April 12, 2011. There has been multiple pages removed regarding these issues. As well a search turned up a Twitter page under the name 'ColmanJones', a technician for Fixed Point Surveillance. The purpose of this page was specifically for 'UPDATES'. Upon going to the page, I got: PAGE NO LONGER EXISTS.
