ALERT: Japan braces for potential radiation catastrophe:
TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan faced a potential catastrophe on Tuesday after a quake-crippled nuclear power plant exploded
and sent low levels of radiation floating toward Tokyo, prompting some people to flee the capital and others to stock up
on essential supplies.
The crisis appeared to escalate late in the day when the operators of the facility said one of two blasts had blown a hole in
the building housing a reactor, which meant spent nuclear fuel was exposed to the atmosphere.
Prime Minister Naoto Kan urged people within 30 km (18 miles) of the facility -- a population of 140,000 -- to remain
indoors amid the world's most serious nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine in 1986.
Officials in Tokyo -- 240 km (150 miles) to the south of the plant -- said radiation in the capital was 10 times normal by
evening but posed no threat to human health in the sprawling high-tech city of 13 million people.
Toxicologist Lee Tin-lap at the Chinese University of Hong Kong said such a radiation level was not an immediate threat
to people but the long-term consequences were unknown.
"You are still breathing this into your lungs, and there is passive absorption in the skin, eyes and mouth and we really do
not know what long-term impact that would have," Lee told Reuters by telephone. More HERE

like Dr. Simeon Heins and indeed Ed Dames himself (see photo below), I have great respect for the subject. After
many years with the experience I am always in awe of the material and how it works:
VIDEO NOTE: In 2003 and 2004, Major Ed Dames announced on Japanese TV and US radio (Coast
to Coast AM) that a massive earthquake would strike Japan and a nuclear reactor would "break",
causing what he described to the host (Art Bell) as a "mini Chernobyl" or, at least, the worse nuclear
disaster since then. This video presents several clips from the stations where this RV prediction was
broadcast to millions of people. Major Dames' heart goes out to the Japanese people. It is truly
unfortunate that this prediction has come to pass.

Radiation from Japan reaches the United States. Important questions and answers for those in the USA:
March 28, 2011
IAEA - International Atomic Energy Association
Staff Report – in part.
For now, radioactivity in the environment, foodstuffs and water � including the sea - is a
matter of concern in the vicinity of the Fukushima plant and beyond. Current levels indicate a
need for further comprehensive monitoring.
Overall at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, the situation is still very serious.
FOOD: As far as food contamination is concerned, samples reported from 26 to 27 March in six
prefectures (Fukushima, Gunma, Ibaraki, Niigata, Tochigi and Yamagata) reported iodine-131 in
asparagus, cabbage, celery, chive, cucumber, eggplant, leek, mushrooms, parsley, tomato, spinach and
other leafy vegetables, strawberries and watermelon. One sample of hana wasabi taken on 24 March in
Fukushima prefecture was above the regulation values set by the Japanese authorities. Caesium-137 was
also measured above the regulation value in the same sample of hana wasabi, but in the remaining five
prefectures, caesium-137 was not detected or the results were below regulation values.
SEA WATER: New results from the marine monitoring stations 30 km off-shore were received for seawater
samples taken on 26 March. The levels decreased at most of the locations. For iodine-131 the
concentration results for four monitoring stations are between 6 to 18 becquerel per litre, and for caesium-
137 between �below limit of detection� and 16 becquerel per litre. The dose rates measured on the sea
surface remain relatively low between 0.04 and 0.1 microsievert per hour.
Samples collected on 26 March 330 metres east of the discharge point showed increasing concentrations.
There were found to be 74,000 becquerel per litre for iodine-131, 12,000 becquerel per litre for caesium-
137, and 12,000 becquerel per litre for caesium-134.
It is still too early to draw conclusions for expected concentrations in marine food, because the situation
can change rapidly. Modelling results show an initial north-eastern transport of liquid releases from the
On 27 March, deposition of iodine-131 was detected in 9 prefectures, and deposition of cesium-137 in 4
prefectures. The highest values were observed in the prefecture of Tochigi with 320 becquerel per
square metre for iodine-131 and 73 becquerel per square metre for caesium-137. In the other prefectures
where deposition of iodine-131 was reported, on 27 March, the range was from 6.4 to 110 becquerel per
square metre. For caesium-137, the range was from 16 to 61 becquerel per square metre. In the
Shinjyuku district of Tokyo, the daily deposition of iodine-131 on 27 March was 100 becquerel per square
metre, while for caesium-137 it was 36 becquerel per square metre. No significant changes were reported
in the 45 prefectures in gamma dose rates compared to yesterday.
Two IAEA teams are currently monitoring radiation levels and radioactivity in the environment in Japan.
One team made gamma dose-rate measurements in the Tokyo and Chiba region at 3 locations. Gamma-
dose rates measured ranged from 0.08 to 0.13 microsievert per hour, which is within or slightly above the
background. The second team made additional measurements at distances of 30 to 46 km from the
Fukushima nuclear power plant. At these locations, the dose rates ranged from 0.5 to 3 microsievert per
hour. At the same locations, results of beta-gamma contamination measurements ranged from 0.02 to 0.3
Megabecquerel per square metre.
The Current Death Toll from the Earthquake and Tsunami is 10,901 Dead (Some estimates say final
could exceed 20,000) and 17,649 are still missing.

Japan utility delays decision on halting reactors
By MARI YAMAGUCHI, Associated Press Mari Yamaguchi, Associated Press – Sat May 7, 8:50 am ET
TOKYO – A Japanese power company postponed its decision Saturday on a government request that
it halt three reactors at a coastal nuclear plant until safety measures can be improved to guard against
future earthquakes and tsunamis.
Shutting down the reactors would likely worsen power shortages expected this summer.
On Friday, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said he had asked Chubu Electric Power Co. to suspend
operation of the reactors at the Hamaoka Nuclear Power Station in Shizuoka prefecture until a seawall
is built and backup systems are improved. Though not legally binding, the request is a virtual order.
The government is reviewing the safety of the country's 54 atomic reactors since a March 11
earthquake and tsunami crippled the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant in the north. The disaster left
more than 25,000 people dead or missing on the northeast coast.

quake is expected within decades, has been a major concern for years. Whole article HERE

Fukushima Day 102 - News Blackout & Censorship Begins as 1.6
Billion Bqs of Radiation Spews out of #2 Reactor.
Subject: Radiation effects from Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster
Hi, Colin, thank you for concerning,
As of August 2011, the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is still leaking low levels of radiation and
areas surrounding it could remain uninhabitable for decades due to high radiation. It could take
“more than 20 years before residents could safely return to areas with current radiation readings of
200 millisieverts per year, and a decade for areas at 100 millisieverts per year”.
The accidents were rated at level 7 rating on the International Nuclear Event Scale. The total amount
of iodine-131 and caesium-137 released into the atmosphere has been estimated to exceed 10%
of the emissions from the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. Frank N. von Hippel, a
U.S. scientist, has estimated that the release of radioactivity is about one-tenth that from the
Chernobyl disaster and the contaminated area is also about one-tenth that of Chernobyl; he also
estimates “on the order of 1,000” people will die from cancer as a result of their exposure to
radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. However, other experts give lower estimates of
deaths due to radiation exposure and, given that the radiation exposure resulting from the accident
for most people living in Fukushima is very small compared to background radiation, it may be
impossible to find statistically significant evidence of increases in cancer.
Good up to date links:

It is no surprise to most of the general public that the IAEA have withdrawn into a shell of silence
because of the damage this incident has done to its industry. That said, its mandate among other
things is to help promote sustainable development objectives in human health, water resource
management and visible global nuclear safety and security, using isotopic techniques. Their last
public update log on this incident was June 2, 2011.

JAPANESE JOURNALIST ACCUSES ISRAEL OF FUKUSHIMA SABOTAGE
''in retaliation for Japan’s support of an independent Palestinian state''
By Richard Walker
A leading Japanese journalist recently made two incredible claims about the Fukushima power plant that
suffered a nuclear meltdown in March 2011, sending shockwaves around the world. First, the former
editor of a national newspaper in Japan says the U.S. and Israel knew Fukushima had weapons-grade
uranium and plutonium that were exposed to the atmosphere after a massive tsunami wave hit the reactor.
Second, he contends that Israeli intelligence sabotaged the reactor in retaliation for Japan’s support of an
independent Palestinian state.
According to Yoishi Shimatsu, a former editor of Japan Times Weekly, these nuclear materials were
shipped to the plant in 2007 on the orders of Dick Cheney and George W. Bush, with the connivance of
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. The shipment was in the form of warhead cores secretly removed from
the U.S. Nuclear warheads facility BWXT Plantex near Amarillo, Texas. While acting as the middleman,
Israel transported warheads from the port of Houston, and in the process kept the best ones while giving
the Japanese older warhead cores that had to be further enriched at Fukushima.
Shimatsu credits retired CIA agent and mercenary Roland Vincent Carnaby with learning the warheads
were being transported from Houston. In a strange twist, Carnaby was mysteriously shot dead less than a
year later by Houston police at a traffic stop. He was shot once in the back and once in the chest. He did
not have a weapon in his hands. Intelligence sources said he had been tracking a Mossad unit that was
smuggling U.S. Plutonium out of Houston docks for an Israeli nuclear reactor.
In an even more explosive charge, the journalist says that 20 minutes before the Fukushima plant’s
nuclear meltdown, Israel was so upset with Japanese support for a Palestinian declaration of statehood
that it double-crossed Japan by unleashing the Stuxnet virus on the plant’s computers. The virus
hampered the shutdown, leading to fallout from a section of the plant housing uranium and plutonium
retrieved from the warheads supplied in 2007.
While it is impossible to verify some of Shimatsu’s claims, there was a massive cover-up at the time of the
Fukushima disaster in March. Explosions at the site were immediately downplayed. While it was
subsequently reported that three reactors suffered meltdowns, Japanese authorities tried to rate the
disaster as a Level 4 on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale, although outside experts
declared it a 7, the highest level.
Something worth noting is how in 2009, two years after Shimatsu says the warheads were secretly moved
to Japan, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued a veiled warning to Japan not to abandon
its anti-nuclear weapons policy.
The IAEA had to know, however, that Japan has long retained the potential to build nuclear weapons. That
was made clear as far back as 1996, when a leaked Ministry of Foreign Affairs document exposed how
Japan had been promoting a dual strategy with respect to nuclear weapons since the mid-1960s. It would
often publicly profess a non-nuclear policy while maintaining the ability to build a nuclear arsenal. The
Liberal Democratic Party, which has dominated Japanese politics, has always said there is no
constitutional impediment to nukes.
A factor that undoubtedly would have encouraged the Bush-Cheney White House to provide Japan with
the means to secretly build nukes was the growing power of China. Cheney and Bush sought to arm
Japan and India with nuclear weapons as a means of curbing China.
Latest estimates of the potential impact from an
earthquake off Japan's southern coast show
massive tsunami could be as high as 34 Mtrs
(112 feet) from a mag 9.0
TOKYO (AP) — Revised estimates of the potential impact from an earthquake
off Japan's southern coast show much of the country's Pacific shore could be
inundated by a tsunami more than 34 meters (112 feet) high.
A government-commissioned panel of experts says a tsunami unleashed by a
magnitude-9.0 earthquake in the Nankai trough, which runs east of Japan's
main island of Honshu to the southern island of Kyushu, could top 34 meters.

Japan Warns of Ocean Contamination
Regulator say groundwater is likely leaking from the plant into ocean waters.
Posted July 13, 2013
and Reuters reports: TOKYO, July 10 | Wed Jul 10, 2013 7:29am EDT
(Reuters) - Japan's nuclear regulator expressed growing alarm on Wednesday at increased contamination
beside the seafront of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station and urged the plant's operators
to take protective measures.
Fukushima's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., has acknowledged problems are mounting at the plant
north of Tokyo, the site of the world's worst atomic disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.
On Tuesday, the company said radiation levels in groundwater had soared, suggesting highly toxic
materials from the plant were getting closer to the Pacific more than two years after three meltdowns
triggered by a massive earthquake and tsunami.
Shunichi Tanaka, head of the new Nuclear Regulation Authority, told reporters he believed contamination of
the sea had been continuing since the March 2011 catastrophe.
"I think contamination of the sea is continuing to a greater or lesser extent," Tanaka said. "It was
contaminated at the time of the accident, but I think it has been continuing for the last two years. Coming up
with countermeasures against all possible scenarios is a top priority."
The NRA "strongly suspected" radiation was contaminating the Pacific, Kyodo news agency said in an
earlier report from a weekly NRA commission meeting, citing Tanaka.
In the days after the tsunami, a plume of radiation from explosions fell over wide areas of the land and sea.
Toxic materials, such as caesium, were later found to have leaked through channels in the ground on the
side of the station by the sea, prompting expressions of concern from South Korea and China.
Dangerous leak reported at crippled plant: Highly radioactive groundwater recently
discovered in test wells at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is likely spreading at the site and leaking into
adjoining ocean waters, Japan's nuclear regulator said, raising worries about the plant operator's efforts to
clean up the disaster site. The tests by Tokyo Electric Power Co. 9501.TO -0.90% have found a recent
increase in radiation levels in wells meant to monitor water safety, with some radioactive levels around 200
times the allowed limits. Experts say the findings raise concerns of widening environmental damage but
pose no broader threats to health given the location of the plant on the oceanfront and the lack of any
residents living nearby. TEPCO said that samples taken from a test well on Tuesday showed the highest
levels they have so far recorded of cesium 134 and cesium 137. Both are considered health risks if
consumed since they can accumulate in muscles and contribute to higher rates of cancer. The irradiated
water is believed to be leaking from the heavily damaged cores at the three reactors that were operating
when a massive quake and tsunami struck the plant in March 2011, causing Japan's worst-ever nuclear
plant accident. In addition, runoff rainwater entering the plant site is flowing into heavily contaminated
areas, picking up nuclear debris. TEPCO says that it hasn't seen any evidence that the problem is
spreading beyond the plant, with no significant increase in radioactive levels at the 16 sampling points it
has in waters located just off the plant.
But the Nuclear Regulation Authority, created in September 2012 in the aftermath of the Fukushima
accident, believes the contamination is spreading. “We strongly suspect that high concentrations of
contaminated water are leaking to the ground, and spreading to the sea,” the agency said Wednesday.
Commenting on the report, agency chairman Shunichi Tanaka also expressed concerns about the reliability
of TEPCO's data. “We need to consider whether we should be relying only on data provided by TEPCO,
and check for ourselves the level of contamination in seawater," he said at a meeting releasing the report.
The new leaks are especially problematic for TEPCO since it is trying to show that it has learned the
lessons from the Fukushima accident and is seeking approval to resume operations at part of its
Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in northwestern Japan, the world's largest in terms of capacity.
Health experts say that it is highly difficult to gauge the potential broader health impact from the leaks, and
stressed the importance of long-term monitoring that may need to go on for decades or longer.
“Underground water moves through layers and eventually goes to the sea. The process sometimes takes a
thousand years, during the time, it will be necessary to keep monitoring,” said Manabu Fukumoto, professor
of Tohoku University's Medical School who leads a study on the health effects in the nuclear accident-hit
area. “There won't be immediate impacts unless you go near the reactors. But for the longer term, radiation
could cause higher rates of cancer,’ said Minoru Takata, director of the Radiation Biology Center at Kyoto
University. –Wall Street Journal
And from Chinese report:
July 10, 2013 – TOKYO - The former boss of Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant, who stayed at his post to try
to tame runaway reactors after the 2011 tsunami, died of cancer yesterday, the operator said. Masao
Yoshida, 58, was at the power station on March 11, 2011, when waves swamped cooling systems and
sparked meltdowns that released plumes of radiation. Yoshida led the subsequent effort to get the crippled
complex under control, as workers battled frequent aftershocks to try to prevent the disaster worsening.
Government contingency plans revealed after the event showed how scientists feared a chain reaction if
Fukushima spiraled out of control, a scenario that could have meant evacuating Tokyo. Yoshida's selfless
work is contrasted in the public mind with the attitude of his employers, who seemed willing to abandon the
complex and are popularly believed to have shirked their responsibility. “He died of esophageal cancer at
11:32am today at a Tokyo hospital,” said a spokesman for plant operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO)
yesterday. Yoshida left the plant soon after being suddenly hospitalized in late November 2011. TEPCO
has said his cancer was unlikely to be linked to radiation exposure in the months after the disaster. The
company has said it would take at least five years and normally 10 years to develop this particular condition
if radiation exposure were to blame. Following surgery for cancer, Yoshida suffered a brain hemorrhage
and had another operation in July 2012, TEPCO said. Yoshida was still employed by TEPCO at the time of
his death. The disaster saw three reactors go into meltdown, spewing radiation into the air, sea and food
chain. No deaths have been directly attributed to the radiation released by the accident, but it has left large
areas of land uninhabitable. The plant itself remains fragile. TEPCO said yesterday radioactive substances
in groundwater have rocketed over the past three days and engineers did not know where the leak was
coming from. Scientists say decommissioning the plant could take 40 years. –China.org
