I do not approve this message - Much of what you’ve heard about the nuclear accident is wrong.

On a heavily guarded campus east of San Francisco stands Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, one of the U.S. government’s premier scientific research facilities. Hours after a massive earthquake and tsunami struck Japan on March 11, 2011, a team of Livermore scientists mobilized to begin assessing the danger from the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The 40-odd team members include physicists, meteorologists, computer modelers, and health specialists. Their specialty is major airborne hazards—toxic matter from chemical fires, ash from erupting volcanoes, or radioactive emissions.

The scientists’ work—secret at the time and barely known to the public even today—had an enormous impact on Japan’s nuclear crisis, averting a potentially disastrous U.S. overreaction. This tale reveals significant new information about the accident's severity and affords a different perspective on events at Fukushima, which have generally been portrayed as a near Armageddon.

News reports fueled the widespread view among the general public that much of eastern Japan—including Tokyo, about 150 miles southwest of Fukushima—would be badly contaminated if the struggle to contain the radiation leaks failed. Tokyo’s airports were mobbed with fleeing foreigners. Senior commanders of U.S. forces in Japan were privately fearful about the risks to American military members and their families at the U.S. bases in the Tokyo area. High-ranking officers were arguing that radiation might well require a mass evacuation.

Alternatively, much of what you haven't heard about the nuclear accident is right.

Let's wait to see what happens when it falls into the sea.

Hi CuckooKill,

Good read,,,I guess,,,thanks for that,,,guy from Berkley did his thesis,,,

wasn't impressed with that,,,technical disagreements,,,

not surprised,,,we still don't have this radiation stuff down pat,,,

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is a good plan,,,

they are very closed mouth about things,,,and very good,,,

so it seems the wind didn't blow toward Tokyo,,,

they really dodged a bullet on that one,,,and the whole thing could

have been alot worst,,,lucked out,,,and it still isn't over,,,

the media sensationalized the whole thing,,,

well they always do this,,,got something to sell,,,and always a problem

trying to get to the truth on matters,,,and we aren't there,,,so can only

repeat what we are being told,,,by others,,,and there were some lies,,,

nothing new,,,but they did have a problem,,,and the pictures prove that,,,

and apes with pants probably shouldn't be playing with this stuff,,,if they

aren't going to do it right,,,and they never do it right...

It's so safe that Japan and the US raised their definition of what a safe dose of radiation is.

The EPA in the US raised it 100 times higher than what it used to be! I believe Japan raidsed there "safe" level 80 times higher than what it was prior to the Fuk nukes misbehaved.

So according to the new definitions, Tokyo is now "safe."

Also whether or not Tokyo is safe is a small question at least compared to the worldwide threat. For instance, the Livermore folks didn't deal with the 300 tons of highly radioactive water flowing into the Pacific each day because it was hidden from them.

There are also 1,000 towers of highly radioactive water that are starting to leak. The first ones have already started to leak and we can expect just about every one to leak because they were bolted together rather than soldered.

Your prayers have worked like crazy. Maybe one of these days I won't have any behavior issues.

Of course they are talking about Tokyo during the big mess,,,

and I wonder if they would have evacuated Tokyo,,,no matter,,,

just decide would lose more to that,,,and certainly aren't going

to tell the power plant workers,,,don't want them running away,,,

and yeah raised the limits,,,that is cause they are smarter about

it all now,,,don't you know???,,,and with the new healthcare systems

it doesn't matter anyway,,,but certainly,,,everybody needs to get

the spent rods away from the reactor sites,,,everywhere,,,and building

reactors in a country known to have strong earthquakes is foolish,,,

but there it is,,,they did it,,,and it ain't going away...

enenews has constantly been a source of fear mongering throughout this protracted event. Certainly some of the articles are spot on, but others with reputable sources are another thing entirely.
It's a given it's worse than what MSM says, they are in the business of lying, molding public opinion and keeping the sheep calm.
It really doesn't matter, the bottom line is that ğkking mess needs cleaned up and stop polluting the entire Pacific Ocean.
If you recall, at first they claimed they would have it under control in a year. 13.gif

Enenews is one of the most important site covering this unending nightmare an has been cited by many experts on the issue who have used it to keep up to date. They also have links to other sites that back up what they report. It is mainly a news aggregator it does not write its own article. Enenews is not a fear monger it simply reports what is happening at fukushima. Bottom line, no technology currently exists to deal with this endless nightmare. Laws are currently being passed in Japan to imprison those that speak out against the government line. Dark days ahead. Next month Tepgov will attempt to remove the remaining fuel rods that have been completely ƒükkêd up. One mistake and major fission event is inevitable and the site will no longer allow for human working environment. Be glad another major quake has not rocked the site.

I want to hear Toadie's opinion on this.

Now where is he? 13.gif
