I received this e-mail with some Fukushima questions about a week ago. Now we have the Death of a Nation on 9/11 and the Death of the Earth on 3/11/11. Hmm, some bookends for us.
A good friend said:
“I won’t allow nuclear power to stop me from the right to go outside, to walk or hike, to travel or to breathe. I witnessed the activities of members of a Japanese community who dissolved radiation through the process of giving light. I know you say there is no evidence of that but I know it to be true. The group is called Mahakari No Wasa [hope I spelled it correctly]. You might look them up on the net.
“I know it can be done. All I can say about nuclear waste is that I know within me that nothing has power over me unless I give power to it. I may die sooner but I will have lived my life.
“Thanks for the copy of your Fukushima report. I know you are making a difference in the world. Keep up the work but remember, we must have hope.”
WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO AND SAY TO REACH PEOPLE??!!
“Your articles have been widely circulated in various social media outlets about #Fukushima and the horrific #nuclear horrors we collectively face. It seems that the ‘Pro-Nuker Propaganda Machinery’ is amped up in full force, and unbelievably, recycling old lies from 2011, with a wide audience and larger group of … movers of their distractions and deceptions.”
“Several people who have heard about Fukushima since the early days are puzzled that so many are ‘still alive.’ Others, in addition to the psychopaths who apparently believe themselves to be immune from radiation poisoning, are those of the EXTEND AND PRETEND strongholds of delusions and galactic thought, along with the ‘end of times’ crowd expecting clouds to part and higher beings to ride in and ‘save us.’”
In “What are Efforts to Contain Fukushima? None” you stated: “You are going to have to make your own choices. You will live a little longer, or, die sooner by these choices, as will I. No one is exempt. The radioactive particles are all over the world now….”
Friends, virtual and non-virtually, have said and asked things like:
Question: In basic math terms, in comparison to Hiroshima, how much worse is Fukushima and why?
Answer: Fukushima, now, equals the detonation of 5,910.11 Hiroshima atomic bombs or it’s about 6,000 times worse than the A-bombing of Japan; and it is still going strong, with no end in sight. That is equal to 6.45 Hiroshima atomic bombs a day for 916 days. There are only 336 cities on Earth with more than 1 million people. That is the equivalent of 17.5 Hiroshima atomic bombs apiece.
Question: In basic math terms, in comparison to Nagasaki, how much worse is Fukushima and why?
Answer: The Nagasaki bomb was slightly larger; therefore, Fukushima equals slightly fewer Nagasaki bombs. However, at this point, it makes no difference.
Question: In basic math terms, in comparison to Chernobyl, how much worse is Fukushima and why?
Answer: At 916 days of growth Fukushima is 14.75 times bigger than the Chernobyl atomic disaster in 1986.
The International Atomic Agency [IAEA] stated: “The accident at Chernobyl was approximately 400 times more potent than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima … ” Fukushima so far is 14.75 times worse than Chernobyl and growing.
Question: In basic non-scientific language, what causes this to be an ELE, Extinction Level Event, and is there any shot at it being reversible?
Answer: Throughout the time humans lived on Earth, humanity has never experienced radiation this high. The radiation and its associated lethality is very high and will kill everybody. The radiation’s lethality will last well past the end of every one’s lifetime. No, there is no shot at reversing the effects and every human on Earth is included.
Question: How long before we are tripping and stumbling over dead-dying bodies?
Answer: In a sense we already are. Human fetuses are the first to die and are typically cremated at the hospital. We just don’t see them. Women, children, already sick people and the elderly infirm are next. Middle aged men are last.
Question: Anything you recommend to lengthen “shortened-life spans?”
Question: Any resources you would direct interested people to?
Question: What other questions must be asked when confronted with an Extinction Level Event, and why have any hope whatsoever?
Answer: Ask what is the published lethality of all of the released isotopes and do not let the empire paid trolls fool you by using radioactivity numbers; it is the LETHALITY that counts. When you find the numbers for the two Cesium Twins multiply by 14 for the total radiation in a single release from an active reactor core. Multiply the combined Cesium137/134 radioactivity numbers by 5 for the total radioactivity in a single release for old fuel rods. Those will give you a rough idea of the radiation released for that instance.
As for “hope,” that is fine, knock yourself out.

The bitter waters of Fukushima-Daiichi. (II)
This is a simple theoretical calculation based on two public data sets 1) 300 m 3 groundwater have passed through the Fukushima to leak at sea every day for 2½ years; the other, 2) according to information provided by Kurion that water from the plant is loaded with Cs-137 up to 2 million Bq per milliliter. The product of these two factors gives chills … http://aipri.blogspot.com/
