The Compassionate Misanthrope
Writers should consider that accurate information about what happened at Fukushima is impossible to obtain. The official versions are too full of holes to take seriously. This has become a property of essentially all “official explanations” about everything dangerous. There is some comfort that modern “perception management” (the euphemism for professional lying) with sophisticated science based methods, means that the truth is out there in the opposite direction. The inverse of revealed truth is most likely to be the real truth. Oh what a mess we have made!
In the meantime there are a lot of strange things to explain about what happened at Fukushima and what caused it. This was clearly not a Three Mile Island type failure. No explanation I have heard from normal channels explains how there was so much destruction, so much destruction that we are told it is impossible to investigate! Transparent lies abound. So we are left again to surmise an extensive cover up.
We all watched the tidal wave drown the town on endless youtube videos. What photos are available show an entirely different level of destruction at the plant than closer to the sea in town. The tsunami was more like a sudden flood than a wall of destructive water. We watched a series of explosions in the reactors on our screens and were supposed to believe a bunch of contradictory “just so” stories as explanations.
This is entirely consistent with our understanding of every significant event since the beginning of the last century. We have entered the millennium of secrecy, that promises to last for only a couple hundred years before the wrap around deceit and manufactured narratives so disables us that we end up causing our own extinction. The willingness of the population to accept these manufactured stories uncritically is to be our undoing.
There is a story behind what happened at Fukushima but we are not going to be told that story. In the final analysis what we can know is that ambient sources of radiation have greatly increased. Fetuses are the canaries in the coal mine here. Watch the newborn health statistics for a peak at the reality that is being successfully hidden.
What is hugely different about Fukushima is that it is STILL spewing out radioactive material, some of it plutonium, the most toxic substance known. Many of these frankenelements will keep killing for near eternity. Plutonium, for instance, has a half life of 24,000 years. Generally it takes three or four half lives to reduce the remaining radioactive substance to acceptable levels.
“With a half-life of 24,100 years, about 11.5 × 1012 of its atoms decay each second by emitting a 5.157 MeV alpha particle. This amounts to 9.68 watts of power. Heat produced by the deceleration of these alpha particles makes it warm to the touch.”
And that is just the plutonium. The whole cast of evil atoms continue to be produced in the wild, washed into the ocean, or blown in the wind over the entire world. The final reality is that we will now be forced to live with higher rates of spontaneous abortions, fetal death, deformities, cancers and, over all, shortened lives. That we can know for sure, the rest is clouded in corporate propaganda. Then there is the often remarked about fact that these reactors can be found across the globe, each one a ticking time bomb.
The saving grace here is that the man-made climate disaster will kill us off sooner than the radiation. It really is all part of the same industrial mass insanity that envelops us, gives us mass consumption of everything, constant wars and, I think most importantly, an eroded human spirit. It is just conceivable that we can come together to stop the insanity, but we can’t stop with a single insanity. Industrial insanity is an entire package. All of it needs to go along with the “industrial thinking” that made it possible.
Life on Earth may well be forced back to the single cell level, but, rest assured, Life will work out the problem and evolve again to cope with the new circumstances, including the enhanced background radiation. Continuation of life on Earth depends on the warming stopping short of what happened with the Venus greenhouse warming event. That would mean the total extinction of Life.
And, just to make it worse, the evidence is that we can have no confidence in any corporate effort to end and remediate the disaster they have caused. Pandora is in the building.
Don’t believe, don’t obey, don’t go with the crowd.
