USS Calhoun County sailors dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into ocean

For up to 15 years after World War II, the crew of Albernaz's ship, the USS Calhoun County, dumped thousands of tons of radioactive waste into the Atlantic Ocean, often without heeding the simplest health precautions, according to Navy documents and Tampa Bay Times interviews with more than 50 former crewmen.

Albernaz began a battle for his life in 1988 when part of his brain began to die, mystifying doctors who eventually concluded the rare ailment might be linked to radiation. He filed a VA claim for benefits in 2001 that was repeatedly rejected, often with tortured government reasoning.

Zombie radiation: Fukushima's poisonous fallout eating entire chunks of peoples' brains away, reaching California coast

The Spanish newspaper, El Pais Semanal, reported back in May that Toru Anzai, 63, a former resident of Litate, Japan, a village in the Fukushima Prefecture, suffered a major heart attack and stroke several years after the reactor meltdowns. During Anzai's stay in the hospital, doctors realized that the frontal lobe of his brain had developed a hole, which they told him may have been caused by absorbing the radioactive isotope cesium, which was prevalent at Fukushima.

The hole in Anzai's brain caused the entire left side of his body to become paralyzed – this, despite the fact that following the reactor meltdowns Anzai was told that there was no risk of radiation. As it turns out, a dosimeter reading taken on April 18, just days after the Fukushima disaster, revealed that the room where Anzai and his brothers had been sleeping saw radiation levels up to 20 times higher than the threshold level established by the Japanese government for relocating residents.

The Mysteriously Obtuse Case Of The Missing Fukushima Fuel

By Richard Wilcox, PhD

“Nature knows no indecencies; man invents them.” – Mark Twain

As the world forever hurtles toward Armageddon, the Fukushima nuclear disaster has largely faded from the front pages. But the issue is far from resolved. Radiation from nuclear accidents is not easily dispelled with estimates of clean-up time at Fukushima ranging from 40 to 500 years, and nearly six years have already passed. Even safely stored nuclear material is dangerous for 100,000 years.

Hanford Fire Department worker tests positive for radioactive contamination

A worker at the Hanford Fire Station has tested positive for internal radioactive contamination at a very low level.

The exposure occurred after breathing equipment used at the nuclear reservation’s Plutonium Finishing Plant was sent to the station for storage, according to the Department of Energy.

Of 150 workers at the Hanford Fire Department, 104 have requested tests of their bodily fluid to determine if they also may have been exposed.

Molten fuel at the bottom of Fukushima reactor

A probe using an X-ray-like detector has found that a large amount of melted nuclear fuel apparently remains at the bottom of one of the damaged reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company released images of the No. 2 reactor on Thursday. They were taken with a device that uses elementary particles called muons.

Pokemon GO-ZILLA: Safety fears after monsters appear in Fukushima danger zone

Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Co is upset that Pokemon Go players on the hunt for monsters are being lured into the Fukushima Nuclear Exclusion Zone.

The fictional creatures were apparently spotted close to the destroyed Daiichi nuclear reactors by Tepco officials. The presence of the collectible cyber-animals could tempt addicts into no-go areas, it is feared.

As a result, power company bosses have demanded that the land around the crippled power plants, where radiation levels remain relatively high, be removed from the hit mobile game.

Radiation levels in seabed off Fukushima ‘100s of times’ higher than prior to disaster – Greenpeace

The amount of radioactive substances in seabed off Fukushima is hundreds of times higher than before the disaster, a report issued by Greenpeace reveals. The figures mean that there is absolutely “no return to normal after nuclear catastrophe” in the area.

On Thursday, the environmental group released a report addressing the results of the study during which scientists analyzed radioactivity levels along Fukushima’s rivers and in the Pacific seabed off the coast.

There’s No Covering Up This One — Visible Pollution Leaking From NY Nuclear Plant

US Coast Guard officials have cordoned off a portion of Lake Ontario this week, after aerial spotters found a visible “sheen” that is coming from a nuclear power plant in upstate New York.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary aircrew first noticed the sheen on Sunday. Shortly after, a boat crew from the Oswego station tested the sheen and a “temporary safety zone” was put in place.

The Free Thought Project spoke to the Coast Guard Sector Buffalo Command Center on Tuesday and confirmed that the zone was still closed off, and there is no information as to when it will reopen.

New Report Exposing Coverup of Fukushima Proves Conspiracy Theorists Right

By Claire Bernish

According to a new report, the Japanese government worked in concert with TEPCO to purposely cover up the meltdown at Fukushima in 2011.

“I would say it was a coverup,” Tokyo Electric Power Company President Naomi Hirose announced during a press conference. “It’s extremely regrettable.”

Masataka Shimizu, president of TEPCO at the time of the earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent nuclear disaster, told employees not to go public with the term “meltdown” — allegedly in capitulation to pressure from the Prime Minister’s Office...

Tepco head apologizes for 3/11 ban issued on ‘meltdown’

The head of Tokyo Electric Power Co. apologized Tuesday over his predecessor’s order to not use the term “core meltdown” to describe the situation at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant in the early days of the March 2011 crisis.

“It is extremely regrettable. People are justified in thinking it as a coverup,” Tepco President Naomi Hirose said at a news conference in Tokyo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this explosion happened...

Tepco claimed it was a hydrogen gas explosion. But when hydrogen burns, it produces water vapor, which is white. The plume was brown and as we pointed out...

... matches the color of the quadrivalent form of Plutonium Dioxide!

Expert: Humanity faces growing threat of accidental or erroneous missile launches

Modernization of systems of access to nuclear missiles is one of the most vital security issues, Vladimir Lukin, Russia’s former human rights ombudsman and a member of the Supervisory Council of the International Luxembourg Forum, told journalists on Wednesday. "In addition to that, there is also a cybernetic problem when someone can intentionally distort the information about issued orders. A multi-tier system of access is functioning; dangerous situations may emerge at any tier. This problem is very serious. Experts constantly study possibilities for improving this system". Lukin said that nuclear disarmament remained the most urgent international problem. "Negotiations should be conducted both bilaterally - between Russia and the United States - as well as at a multilateral level among nuclear powers". "Reykjavik: 30 Years After - Lessons of the Past and Tasks for the Immediate Future" conference is taking place in Amsterdam on June 7-8.

Fukushima and Nuclear Power: Does the Advertising Giant Dentsu Pull the Strings of Japan’s Media?

French journalist Mathieu Gaulène describes the business practices of Dentsu and its competitor Hakuhodo, the biggest and the second biggest advertising companies of Japan respectively. Specifically, it examines how their close relations to the media and the nuclear industry play out in the wake of the 3.11 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. Focusing Dentsu, Gaulène discusses how the marketing and public relations (PR) giant has dominated major media which large advertising contracts from the nuclear industry. The article is particularly timely as Dentsu unveils its deep ties to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic bid and the Panama Papers. Regrettably, however, with rare exceptions, there is little media coverage of the influence of Dentsu in mainstream Japanese newspapers and magazines.

What Hell Is Coming? Even Obama Is Warning Americans ‘To Prepare For Disaster’

Barack Obama doesn’t open his mouth unless it is to spin propaganda for an agenda. If disaster comes, will it be a false flag terror event, mega-natural disaster or total episode of civil unrest combined with martial law coming to America soon?

If Obama is the one telling you to get prepared for disaster, then it might already be too late. Obama stated:

One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.

An American Fukushima May Be Closer Than You Think

The 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was horrific to watch unfold. It will take decades — and billions of dollars — to clean up, as more problems seem to emerge by the minute.

Most recently, Tepco announced that it’s still missing a large amount of spent fuel — in part because radiation remains so high that robots and other devices cannot function inside the plant to give workers a better picture of what’s going on.

The World’s Most Expensive “Thing” – It’s British, a Financial Disaster And Will Affect Us All

This power station has been described as the most expensive single “thing” on earth, although other power projects such as energy ports come even more expensive. Originally budgeted to cost around £14 billion three years ago, then £18 billion last year and revised up to nearly £22 billion this year. The EU Commission has estimated its final cost to be £24 billion.

Electricité de France or EDF the French state owned energy company is the biggest stakeholder. The project to build this power station is more expensive than the entire market capitalisation value of EDF and is effectively one huge gamble, and a gamble in more ways than one.

America's nuclear guinea pigs: Astonishing film that shows how Marines were used to test atomic weapons

They were the nuclear guinea pigs of the Cold War.

And this is the shocking film to show how U.S. Marines were used in hundreds of experiments by the US military to test the limits of nuclear bombs between 1951 and 1957.

During many of those tests, soldiers who thought of themselves as ‘ground grunts’ and were sworn to secrecy witnessed the atomic explosions first-hand, and from close range, before the devastating health risks of those bombs were fully understood.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government did in fact know the health risks due to accidents that happened during the development of the bomb.

Hanford Nuclear Reservation to become a Park?

Hanford nuclear reservation is a barren 586 square mile site nesting against southwest reaches of the mighty Columbia River. It was founded in 1942 as part of the Manhattan Project, the project to build the world's first nuclear bomb. The site was ideal because of its isolation, unlimited water supply, and dry desert-like climate allowing for quick, easy construction developments. Today it represents a legacy of science gone mad, and a site dogged by waste and fraud.

$375M settlement reached in homeowner lawsuit against Rocky Flats

Thousands of homeowners who lived downwind of the former Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant and the operators of the controversial facility have settled a lawsuit to the tune of $375 million, more than a quarter century after the legal action was first filed.

The settlement, which must be approved by a federal judge, brings to an end a 26-year legal saga that began when homeowners living east of Rocky Flats accused the plant's operators, Rockwell International Corp. and Dow Chemical Co., of devaluing their properties due to plutonium releases from the plant.

The lawsuit, which included as many as 15,000 homeowners in an area largely encompassing neighborhoods surrounding Standley Lake, was first filed in 1990.

In court papers filed Wednesday, the lawsuit was described as "quite possibly the largest docket of any District of Colorado case to date."

Officials for the Hanford Nuclear Reservation are trying to determine if a second giant underground tank containing radioactive waste from the production of plutonium for nuclear weapons is leaking, the U.S. Department of Energy revealed on Tuesday. Air monitors attached to an aging tank known as AY-101 recently found radiation at higher than normal background levels, the agency said. A video inspection of the underground tank found no evidence that radioactive waste had leaked from the primary tank into the space between the two walls, Hanford officials said. A Hanford watchdog group on Tuesday contended the higher radiation found by the air monitors was evidence of a leak in a second tank.
