Lies and Rebellion

No apologies for concentrating on Fukushima again, because it’s a huge story, and yet there’s barely a word about it in the mainstream media; but I’ll get on to that later. In the meantime, the following short video is from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which is a US federal agency. It’s a model of radiation dispersal between 12th March and 12th April 2011, the first month of the Fukushima disaster…

The above model is based on dispersal of cesium-137, which is mostly a beta emitter but also gives out gamma rays and thus is easy to detect (not so easy to detect is the plutonium, strontium, etc, which accompanies the cesium). The high concentrations of radioactivity (in red) shown in the early part of this model are doubtless a result of the explosions that occurred between 12th and 15th March, in Fukushima Daiichi units 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Although most of the radiation released during that first month went out across the Pacific, Japan was still heavily dosed (and continues to be 24/7). Chiho Kaneko, a member of the Board of Directors of Fairewinds Energy Education, was recently in Japan and has put out a video about her experiences. Amongst other things, Kaneko talks about the extremely high rates of thyroid cancer amongst children in Fukushima prefecture. This indicates just how heavily dosed they were, because we’re still only three years into the Fukushima disaster, whilst at Chernobyl it took five years before the first thyroid cancers started showing-up. The following is an excerpt from Kaneko’s presentation (the complete video, which is 19 minutes long, can be found here)…

The Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, the Steam Age, humans are largely defined by their technology. So what will our present era be labelled? the Information Age..? This seems unlikely, because although we now have worldwide mass communications, and an unprecedented flow of information, it’s all been mostly hijacked and is now heavily controlled. We all know this is true of the mainstream media, but also consider what’s termed the ‘alternative media’; but don’t worry, I’m not ‘controlled opposition’ run by the CIA, or the NSA, or GCHQ, or any other of the paranoid loons who feel it’s their mission to control and manipulate their fellow human beings.

Maybe our present era will become known as the Nuclear Age, because although nuclear power now accounts for only 3% of the world’s energy supply, it’s completely poisoned the planet, and of course the threat of MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) is still only the press of a button away, and paranoid loons tend to have twitchy fingers.

More likely, though, is that our present era will become known as the Narcotic Age, because the vast majority of humans are now on drugs of one sort or another, whether it be prescription drugs, street drugs or stuff they make themselves. It seems to me that the Narcotic Age is a reasonable explanation for why almost the entire human race can completely ignore a disaster of the magnitude of Fukushima.

Lets have some music…
