Radiation Cover Up in US-Video.

In natural disasters on April 16, 2011 at 09:16

Usually Communist Regimes, especially Russia and China suppress details of Calamities as if the system is responsible.

US joining the Club? 

Alfred Webre talks with Leuren Moret on the cover-up behind the nuclear crisis in Japan.  She’s concerned that  high levels of radiation coming toward the West coast of N America will lead to chronic low level exposure for decades, having a tremendous impact on public health and the economy. How air quality will continue to decline as nuclear contamination builds in the upper levels of the atmosphere around the world. N America and Mexico will be more severely impacted than Europe and Africa. Canada stopped monitoring radiation levels in Vancouver, apparently to protect their workers nd equipment from high levels of radiation. The US  stopped measuring radiation in milk and raised legal limits of radiation in the environment. It’s legal genocide.

What has occurred in Japan’s Nuclear plant is a disaster of disasters and although I am not surprised there is’nt  much press on TV, or other more accessible media channels to the public being broadcasted. Why? Some common sense experts would say because they don’t want to make a big deal, until, the nuclear spill causes a snowball effect destroying anything and everything in its path. What are the cost besides the human losses the earthquake/tsunami has caused? Was Japan moving too swiftly with its technological innovations?  The spill for starters, will create some extremely  severe problems in the ocean, our fish for one will not be a safe food to eat for a long, long, time. How long? who knows, I’m not an expert on nuclear reactions. But I am sure this single chains of events will change the face of the earth forever, in ways I cannot fathom. What are the only viable solutions and what comes next? The first groups of people who come mind are the earth protectors and their mean green fighting regime. Yes, just a few short years ago recycling was something we did out of cashing in some aluminum for a handful of cash, now we do it out of respect. Now we must do more  to help balance our planetary karma or else. The choice is leaves no room for weak links who won’t participate and the odds of reversing the catastrophe are extremely unbalanced.

The Health Outcome of the Fukushima Catastrophe Initial Analysis from Risk Model of the European Committee on Radiation Risk ECRR By: Chris Busby.

Given that the ICRP predicted excess cancers will probably appear in the next10 years, they will not be measurable above the normal rate unless they are rarecancers. Examples are leukaemia in children or thyroid cancer.The ECRR absolute risk method cannot be formally used unless we know theindividual radionuclide exposures. However it can be used if we approximate that 1/3of the dose is internal and that 1/3 of the internal dose carries a weighting of 300(which was the overall weighting factor obtained form the weapons test falloutspectrum of radionuclides epidemiology). Then the annual internal dose is 5.6mSvand 1/3 of this is 1.9mSv which we weight at 300. The total ECRR dose is thus575mSvECRR. The collective dose is then 3,338,900 x 575 x 10
-3
to give 1,919,867person Sieverts and a lifetime (50 year) cancer yield of 191,986 extra cancersassuming the ECRR risk factor of 0.1 per Sievert ECRR. Given the different timeframes, these numbers obtained from the Tondel et al 2004 regression and the ECRRabsolute model based on the atmospheric test cancer yields in Wales and England arein reasonable agreement.The three predictions are given in Table 5

Cancer excess in 200km annulus population
The methods employed above may be extended to the 200km annulus if thecontamination levels are known. Presently no data is available of contamination inthese areas although dose rates are available. NOAA Computer modelling carried outby us and published on the internet (www.llrc.org) and elsewhere suggest that theplumes from the catastrophe have travelled south over the highly populated areasshown in Fig4. Dose rates have been published for these areas and from these doserates it can be assumed that significant exposures have occurred. From Table 4 andFig 3 we can assume that the exposures are of the order of 1

Sv/h with associatedcontamination levels. Therefore the methods employed for the 100km area may beextended to the 200km area. The population is, however much greater at 7,874,600.The results

(HigginsBlog) – Despite countless reassurances that no harmful levels of radiation from the Japan nuclear fallout would hit the US from the EPA, the University of Berkley in California is now reporting that rainwater in San Francisco water has now been detected at levels 18,100%  above federal drinking water standards.

Again, with just about all other news of the radiation hitting the US, the news is once again reported to the public over a week after it was first detected.

Japan Plugs Radioactive Water Leak.

Japanese workers have stopped the leak of radioactive water from the earthquake-damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant, but the situation is still far from under control, according to a confidential US Nuclear Regulatory report obtained by the New York Times.  The report identifies a wide array of problems including build-ups of hydrogen gas that could cause explosions similar to those that crippled the plant soon after the earthquake.  Workers have begun injecting nitrogen into a reactor to try to stabilize the hydrogen.  Plant owners are also facing the problem of how to dispose of millions of gallons of radioactive wastewater – they’ve been dumping it into the ocean for several days now.  Voice of America reports the dumping will continue until at least Friday.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. finally succeeded in stopping the main leak of highly radioactive water from the damaged Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant into the ocean Wednesday morning and workers were preparing to inject nitrogen into at least one reactor in a bid to prevent another hydrogen explosion

Tepco said it confirmed at 5:38 a.m. that a crack in the No. 2 reactor storage pit had been plugged after workers injected 1,500 liters of sodium silicate and another agent to solidify a layer of small stones under a cable trench.

“I have been told that it is being thoroughly looked into whether the leak has completely stopped and whether there are other (cracks),” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said. “We have not stopped worrying just because the leak supposedly stopped.”

The highly radioactive water is believed to have come from the No. 2 reactor core, where fuel rods have partially melted, and ended up in the pit. The pit is connected to the No. 2 reactor turbine building and an underground trench connected to the building, both of which were found to be filled with high levels of contaminated water.

    • Although a dose of just 25 rems causes some detectable changes in blood, doses to near 100 rems usually have no immediate harmful effects. Doses above 100 rems cause the first signs of radiation sickness including:

      Doses of 300 rems or more cause temporary hair loss, but also more significant internal harm, including damage to nerve cells and the cells that line the digestive tract. Severe loss of white blood cells, which are the body’s main defense against infection, makes radiation victims highly vulnerable to disease. Radiation also reduces production of blood platelets, which aid blood clotting, so victims of radiation sickness are also vulnerable to hemorrhaging. Half of all people exposed to 450 rems die, and doses of 800 rems or more are always fatal. Besides the symptoms mentioned above, these people also suffer from fever and diarrhea. As of yet, there is no effective treatment–so death occurs within two to fourteen days.

      In time, for survivors, diseases such as leukemia (cancer of the blood), lung cancer, thyroid cancer, breast cancer, and cancers of other organs can appear due to the radiation received
