Fukushima Epidemic is Just Beginning — [Videos] Evacuee: “We are in fact dying in Fukushima; What happened to us will soon affect all Japanese people”…

What the state announces is different from the reality. […] As I just told you what the media says and the facts are entirely different.  […] What happened to Fukushima residents will soon affect all Japanese people […] While some say the radiation has dispersed, we are now safe people are in fact dying in Fukushima. One day a nephew of my friend died of Leukemia. The next day her husband also died. […] There are people living in Fuksuhima, now, they all say: “We’re guinea pigs after all […] many people are dying, huh? There’s nothing we can do, it’s useless, so why bother? I’d rather focus on happy things” and continue with their decontamination. […] People refuse to face the fact that these will eventually come back to haunt them.



Miko in Kitakyushu -
I listened to your entire speech. It was the most incredible speech anyone has made since March 2011. I feel total sympathy for you. You made the best decision you could under the circumstances. You were surrounded by idiots in Fukushima who believed the lies, even your relatives, but you found the courage to move by yourself to Kitakyushu with your children. But then after that, Kitakyushu allowed the burning of extremely dangerous radioactive waste to endanger you again. You have jumped from one frying pan into a second frying pan. I seriously believe your best move now would be to completely leave Japan forever. From what you said, the entire government at every single level is conspiring to lie about the dangers of the fallout. The government is going to kill several millions of people purely for short-sighted economic reasons. My God, My God – I feel so sorry for you I don’t know what to do.

Releasing Fukushima radioactive water into Pacific ‘inevitable’ — Reports: Japan very aware of danger posed by past releases; Contaminants are concentrated thousands of times in food chain; At end of chain are humans “who may suffer genetic damage, cancer, other health problems and even death”…

Fairewinds Energy Education’s Arnie Gundersen discusses sources of radiation the Japanese government is not taking into consideration when assessing the risk to it’s people and the rest of the world.

  1. Now the cultural traits ingrained for centuries are coming forward to bite an entire nation. No reward for “aggressive” self-expression – the Japanese commenter considers the statment a “brave” one. Perhaps the entire crew of administrative responsibles should receive “subtle” hints that they should all commit hari-kari and turn over the entire rescue mission to foreigners, paid for by proceeds from expropriation of energy company assets.

  2. Are we that different? Our govt.’s reaction to all this, not unlike the BP Gulf disaster, is, nothing to see here. And we are happy as punch to oblige. As a nation, we are as strong as our mass media. Did you see what Paris Hilton said today?

  3. I’m glad I found this blog. I live on the central coast and there’s no news down here. Do any of you know of a good website covering the monitoring effort? The one I am familiar with only discusses CPM, and there’s no baseline data that I can find–there is historical data on this site (wish I could remember the name right now) but you have to pay $20 for that. It should be more accessible. Also–how about the “red forest” syndrome? I’m seeing pine trees dying that are all red. Not many, but enough to worry about. I can’t’ even say how much I hate the enforced ignorance about this.
