Huge Fukushima Cover-Up Exposed, Government Scientists In Meltdown

20151219_fuku.jpg

Fukushima radiation just off the North American coast is higher now than it has ever been, and government scientists and mainstream press are scrambling to cover-up and downplay the ever-increasing deadly threat that looms for millions of Americans.

Fukushima Radiation Has Contaminated The Entire Pacific Ocean (And It's Going To Get Worse)

20161002_fuku.jpg

The Fukushima nuclear disaster has contaminated the world's largest ocean in only five years and it's still leaking 300 tons of radioactive waste every day.

Going to contaminate the entire water supply of the planet?

TEPCO Admits Fukushima Radiation Levels Reach Record Highs As Hole In Reactor Discovered

20170203_fuku2.jpg

With just 3 years left until the 2020 Olympics, Japan is likely desperate to reassure the world's athletes that all is well, but an admission from TEPCO - the Fukushima nuclear plant operator - that they discovered a hole at least one square meter in size beneath the reactor's pressure vessel, and lethal record-high radiation levels have been detected, will not likely reassure anyone.

Having had a little search of the 'news' its hard to find any coherent coverage of the latest 'developments', doesn't help that most journalists are clueless on anything technical and the public is more interested in talent shows, celebrities and other stuff pedalled to the mentally numb.

Some interesting nuggest but nothing concrete to where the melted fuel has gone/ended up, anything more detailed on the 530Sv/hr figure or on the 300m3/hr of seepage into the sea.

The Japanese honor mentallity verges on criminal at times, if Japan were not an American vassal state it would be bankrupt toast.

Not Fukushima, but interesting:

 

Radioactive boars found in Czech forests 31yrs after Chernobyl disaster

Radioactive wild boars have been detected in Czech forests, some 31 years after the Chernobyl disaster, a veterinary administration official said, adding that they are eating mushrooms that can absorb high levels of radioactive isotopes.

The animals became radioactive due to false truffles, the underground mushrooms they feed on, Jiri Drapal at the Czech State Veterinary Administration told Reuters. The mushroom is found in the Sumava mountain region in the Czech Republic, which borders Austria and Germany.

It can absorb high levels of radioactive isotopes, including Caesium 137, which was released in great quantities after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

Caesium-137 has a half-life of 30 years, which means it loses half of its radioactivity within that period.

When boars eat radioactive mushrooms, they become radioactive themselves. Boar meat is highly popular in the Czech Republic, so there’s danger of radioactive meat ending up on one’s table.

Not to worry. They're easier to hunt since they glow in the dark.

From the map it just seems to know not to go into the adjacent oceans and seas - and what about the stuff in the air.

I'm not anti-nuclear at all (although I do think building plants on fault lines or in other silly places is highly risky and I would think twice about it!). Russia itself is quite pro nuclear power, isn't it? Rosatom is the leading nuclear power-plant builder worldwide, or at least one of the leading builders.

Anyway, Fukushima is now officially the worst nuclear disaster:
