Radiation: A Soft-Kill Operation
Fukushima Radiation: A Soft-Kill Operation
Posted on Pakalert on April 26, 2011 //
Shortly after the March 11th earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown at Fukushima, I wrote an article questioning whether these events were part of the globalists’Agenda 21 plan to significantly reduce the world’s population. Unfortunately, the evidence revealed since that time clearly indicates that the Fukushima nuclear radiation leak is an ongoing soft-kill operation against the people and ecosystem of the Northern Hemisphere. Today, Japan’s leaking reactors still have not been capped with sand and concrete, as was done to stop the leak at Chernobyl, while radiation levels in the air, food, and water continue to increase. Several reputable scientists have stepped forward with predictions that hundreds of thousands of premature and cancer related deaths will result from the radiation.
In 2004, independent scientist Leuren Moret wrote an article in the Japan Times entitled, Japan’s deadly game of Nuclear Roulette, that revealed the lies and distortions of government and corporate officials that led to the construction of nuclear power plants in seismically dangerous areas. Moret points out that that Japan sits on top of four tectonic plates, at the edge of the subduction zone, and is one of the most tectonically active regions in the world. Many of Japan’s nuclear reactors were negligently sited on active faults, where major earthquakes of magnitude 7-8 or more on the Richter scale frequently occur. On average, a major earthquake occurs in Japan at least once in a ten-year period.
It is not a question of whether or not a nuclear disaster will occur in Japan; it is a question of when it will occur. Like the former Soviet Union after Chernobyl, Japan will become a country suffering from radiation sickness destroying future generations, and widespread contamination of agricultural areas will ensure a public-health disaster. Its economy may never recover.
Moret also predicted problems cooling Japan’s nuclear reactors in the event of an earthquake:
“… there is an extreme danger of an earthquake causing a loss of water coolant in the pools where spent fuel rods are kept. As reported last year in the journal Science and Global Security, based on a 2001 study by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, if the heat-removing function of those pools is seriously compromised — by, for example, the water in them draining out — and the fuel rods heat up enough to combust, the radiation inside them will then be released into the atmosphere. This may create a nuclear disaster even greater than Chernobyl.”
Moret’s article noted that during a nuclear disaster, power plant workers (such as the Fukushima 50), as well as emergency-response personnel would be exposed to lethal radiation. Japan also lacked plans to evacuate millions of people in such and event.
Prior the March 11th Fukushima meltdown, numerous whistle-blowers who publicly spoke-out about the danger of Japan’s nuclear power plants were ignored and/or fired.
Thirty five years ago, Dale G. Bridenbaughand two of his colleagues at General Electric, which designed the Fukushima reactors, resigned from their jobs after becoming convinced that the nuclear reactor design for the Mark 1 was flawed and could lead to a devastating accident.
Questions persisted for decades about the ability of the Mark 1 to handle the immense pressures that would result if the reactor lost cooling power, and today that design is being put to the ultimate test in Japan. Five of the six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, which has been wracked since Friday’s earthquake with explosions and radiation leaks, are Mark 1′s.
Bridenbaugh said that “the problems we identified in 1975 were that, in doing the design of the containment, they did not take into account the dynamic loads that could be experienced with a loss of coolant . . . The impact loads the containment would receive by this very rapid release of energy could tear the containment apart and create an uncontrolled release.”
Likewise, in 1998, Kei Sugaoka, a Japanese-American senior field engineer who worked for General Electric in the United States from 1980 until being dismissed in 1998 for whistle-blowing there, alerted Japanese nuclear regulators to a 1989 reactor inspection problem he claimed had been withheld by GE from their customer, Tokyo Electric Power Company. Later it was revealed from GE documents that they had in fact informed TEPCO — but the company did not notify government regulators of the hazards.
Profit and Public Harm
Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) is the fourth largest electric power company in the world and the largest from Asia. TEPCO has one-third of the Japanese electric market and is the largest of the 10 electric utilities in Japan. Therefore, TEPCO is really a state-endorsed monopoly that has a great deal of control over the Japanese government and political puppets the world-over.
It is clear that the leadership of TEPCO, the owner and operator of the Fukushima nuclear facility, cares more about preserving its income-generating assets than killing its workers and others from radioactive fallout. Bloomberg reported that “Tokyo Electric Power Co. was reluctant to use seawater to cool one of the six reactors at the plant and hesitated because it was concerned about harming its long-term investment in the plant…” It was also reported that “plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. reiterated Sunday that it is not considering entombing the hot reactors in concrete, as was done at Chernobyl in 1986 when a reactor fire burned out of control. Japan’s nuclear crisis is the world’s worst since then.”
One should visit Energy News to see just how much devastation is caused by Fukushima radiation fallout. Recent headlines include:
- April 16 Forecast Shows Radioactive Cloud Stretching from Texas to Canada
- Radioactive Cesium Levels Continue to Rise in Milk from San Francisco Bay Area
- Phoenix Milk Sample Exceeds EPA’s Maximum Contaminant Level
- Strawberries, mushrooms with Cesium-137 found in Northern California; 5 of 6 items in food chain sampling test have radioactive particles
Indeed, the Fukushima radiation is polluting our air, drinking water, and food supply. Additionally, millions of gallons of radioactive water have been released from the facility into the ocean, which could devastate marine life. Can the radiation permanently alter our DNA, or that of plants and animals? Japanese food imports have already been halted in several countries. Why didn’t TEPCO or the Japanese government entomb the reactors?
Arnold Gunderson, a 39-year veteran of the nuclear industry, stated: “I absolutely disagree with the scientists who say that Fukushima’s not going to hurt anyone. The numbers I’ve seen, from reputable scientists, are that Fukushima is going to kill 200,000 from increased cancers over the next 50 years.”
Likewise, Dr. Christopher Busby, Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, states that 400,000 people will develop cancer within a 200 kilometer radius of Fukushima. He believes that TEPCO and the Japanese government were criminally negligent for failing to inform the public of the true danger.
Natalia Manzurova, one of the few survivors among those directly involved in the Chernobyl clean-up, is an advocate for radiation victims. Her advice for the Japanese people was to “run away as quickly as possible. Don’t wait. Save yourself and don’t rely on the government because the government lies. They don’t want you to know the truth because the nuclear industry is so powerful.”
Nationally acclaimed neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. stated with the Fukushima radiation hitting the United States, there is going to be a risk of increased cancer.
When we look at Chernobyl, most of West Germany was heavily contaminated. Norway, Sweden. Hungary was terribly contaminated. The radiation was taken up into the plants. The food was radioactive. They took the milk and turned it into cheese. The cheese was radioactive. That’s the big danger, the crops in this country being contaminated, the milk in particular, with Strontium 90. That radiation is incorporated into the bones and stays for a lifetime.
