"...radiation levels 10 times the normal right now..."


How do you effectively evacuate a city of Tokyo's calibre???

Want some REALdoom? Oh this is so ğkking doom, it'd make Eeeyore smile


1. Israel and the US create Stuxnet.

2. Stuxnet is deployed to wreck Iran's nuclear power station.

3. But Stuxnet escapes from its intended target and spreads across Asia!

4. As the above article documents,
http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national/T101004003493.htm Stuxnet was in Japan last October, presumably still spreading and intended to wreck nuclear power plants. Here is another story about Stuxnet being in Japan and infecting computers last October.

5. Stuxnet targets the Siemens controller

6. The head of the IAEA only last month warned that Stuxnet posed a threat to all nuclear power stations around the world!
And Fukushima uses the Seimens controllers Stuxnet was designed to interfere with!

NEWS ADVISORY: Spinach from Tochigi Pref. detected with high radioactive substance (22:32)

NEWS ADVISORY: Radioactive substance detected in 'shungiku' leaf vegetable in Chiba (22:45)


Everything must now be imported to the island, this could get quite expensive, Japan may be non sustainable at this point.

Now, on to the Top story of the Hour:

Good Morning Viewers,

In a Report from the University of Punta Prietta, in Patagonia, where school children, ages 6 through 10,
Have completed their study of :


In this report, and study, the children have discovered that their Children, will be so Malformed from birth defects,,,
That these children of theirs will be almost indistinguishable from Grey Aliens!

However Folks, there is an up side to this discovery:::::

It was also found that these NEW hybrid birth defective Children, will also suffer HIVE MIND,
which as we know from our MK Ultra Experiments into trauma based mind control, can and will
make these Hybrids excellent UNQUESTIONING FREE LABOR for production.

(Camera zooms in on the smiling face of talking head Chet)

Back to you Walter:::::

I hate to say this, but that could actually play out if we're not very careful. We are at a critical juncture at the moment, if our "leaders" begin to disappear things are going to get real interesting.

Spinach with radioactive iodine 27 times more than the government-regulated limit was found in the city of Hitachi in Ibaraki Prefecture, more than 100 kilometers south of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, but the radiation levels do not affect human health, local authorities said Sunday.

Japan nuclear crisis: 'Fukushima 50' face new setback

It occurred in a holding vessel around reactor three at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant, and forced engineers to consider releasing more radioactive material into the atmosphere. A similar tactic produced explosions during the early days of the crisis.
Officials warned that a release of radiation this time would be larger than in previous releases because more nuclear fuel had degraded.
They said the process could involve the emission of a cloud dense with iodine, as well as the radioactive elements krypton and xenon.
Tepco, the plant operator, temporarily suspended the venting plan after pressure inside the reactor stopped climbing, but said it was still at a high level.
Hikaru Kuroda, a Tepco manager, said temperatures inside reactor three, which contains highly toxic plutonium, had reached 572F (300C) but had "stabilised" after seawater was continuously pumped in to keep it cool.

Swedes in Tokyo asked to take iodine tablets
Published March 19, 2011, at. 20:32. Last modified March 19, 2011, at. 21:02

All Swedes who are in Japan and within 250 km radius from Fukushima have been advised to proactively eat iodine tablets.
This includes all Swedes in Tokyo, according to Swedish authorities.
It is the Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) that made the new assessment that wind direction may change, and the probability of a radioactive fallout in the Tokyo area is slightly larger than before, Swedish foreign ministry spokesperson Anders Jörle said.
Iodine tablets will be available at the Swedish Embassy in Tokyo Sunday morning, local time.
-Then we have more information on the Embassy website, "says Jörle.
Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, STUK, announced that the Finns in Japan do not need to take iodine tablets.
On Saturday the Swedish foreign ministry updated their travel advisory for Japan and issued the following: "Anyone who is worried and wants to be certain radioactive fallout does not affect them should consider leaving Japan or travel to parts of Japan outside the 250 km (155 miles) area".

Ya know...I don't know what to say. rofl.gif this map
they aren't giving radiation levels for Fukushima district, says it's 'undersurvey' but go South to Ibaraki ditrict and the level rads 2,040 the chart only goes to 2,040. Unsafe levels are over 100, normal range is 0-60. I really think levels that top out the charts are going to affect human health... sad2.gif

WHO spokesman: Japan food safety situation "serious"

BEIJING - The World Health Organization said on Monday that the detection of radiation in food after an earthquake damaged a Japanese nuclear plant was a more serious problem than it had first expected.

"It's a lot more serious than anybody thought in the early days when we thought that this kind of problem can be limited to 20 to 30 kilometres," Peter Cordingley, Manila-based spokesman for WHO's regional office for the Western Pacific, told Reuters in a telephone interview.

Cases of contaminated vegetables, dust, milk and water are already stoking regional anxieties despite Japanese officials' assurances the levels are not dangerous.


well duh, ğck yes it's 'serious'

The workers at the Fukushima nuclear power plant 1, the third reactor has been evacuated after white smoke was seen rising from the building.

Earlier in the night came reports that pressure has risen in the hardest hit unit reactor 3, said Nuclear safety authorities.
The technicians were considering lowering the pressure by opening a hole in the reactor shell.

According to Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan improved situation in Fukushima "slowly", according to Kyodo news agency.

The power plant's operator says now that it has succeeded in connecting electric cables to all the six units, including units 3 and 4, which is considered to be the hardest-hit units.
But before the cooling system is in operation must be verified with a number of other mechanisms inside the plant.

URGENT: Grayish smoke seen billowing from Fukushima No. 3 reactor building
TOKYO, March 21, Kyodo

Grayish smoke was seen billowing from a building that houses the No. 3 reactor of the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station on Monday, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said.

After the smoke was spotted at the southeast of the building around 3:55 p.m., TEPCO said it had temporarily evacuated its workers from the site as it assessed the situation.

Does no-one in charge realize that no news is VERY BAD NEWS ?
First full day of Spring and I have an inch of snow on the deck. I wonder if it's crapped up like a wipe at the nuke plant.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Yup, when we have to translate Swedish information to English just to be able to get the information in the first place, you know things are shaky and they don't want people to panic.

I'm thinking they probably didn't want to release pressure due to the wind direction (going straight for Tokyo) and it's raining. The fallout would have been massive...plutonium rain damned.gif ...And now they're dealing with the consequences

URGENT: Cooling system pump stops at Tokai nuclear power plant: fire dep't
TOKYO, March 14, Kyodo

The Fire and Disaster Management Agency said a cooling system pump stopped operating at Tokai No. 2 Power Station, a nuclear power plant, in the village of Tokai, Ibaraki Prefecture.


This complex is about 80 miles S of Fukushima and would explain why levels are so high in Ibaraki. News has been pretty quiet about it. damned.gif

Meanwhile, the government's task force to tackle nuclear accidents instructed municipal governments near the crisis-hit Fukushima plant on Monday to ease conditions under which they require people to undergo mandatory decontamination.

A radiation level of 100,000 counts per minute will be introduced as a new standard for decontamination, up from 6,000 counts per minute, the government said, adding that raising the bar will not endanger health.

The government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said the decision was made based on advice from domestic nuclear experts and the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Ah. They're buying time, that's why.

According to
It takes 259 days @ 10,000 CPM to feel the onset of radiation sickness. Cancer risk @ 10,000 CPM is 4 days, health risk @ 2 days.
