@ Op,

i know that Radiation is cumulative but do you understand
the biological Half Life which is very different from the
physical?

Tepco is only responsible for the Plant and the surrounding Area,
all the rest of the Tests is done by other People, Institutes, Universities,
Cooperatives and private Laboratories!

The People here in Japan are well aware of the Risk and the Danger
from Fukushima and Nuclear Powerplants in general,
much more than in the US,
you are welcomed to research it here in Japan!

We don't believe everything, not from the Government
and not from all the funny Blogs in the Western World.
There is so much stupid Bs it is really incredible.

Alone here at Glp who is infested by this Hoaxer
we can erase ca. 85-90% of all Threads because
they are wrong, stupid or out of the Context.

Fukushima Updates: The Elephant in the Room

[snip]

Tepco has been lying from the very beginning.

The Japanese government, in collusion with Tepco, has been lying from the beginning.

GE, the designers of the Mark 1 systems used at Fukushima – 23 of the same reactors are used in 16 US nuclear plants – has been lying about the plant's safety long before the plant was built.

The Obama Administration – when they've had to address the issue – has been lying from the very beginning, except when they just kept silent.

In 2011, President Obama picked Jeffrey Immelt, former GE Chairman and CEO, as an outside economic advisor. GE represents the archetypal company that's hoarding cash, sending jobs overseas, relying on taxpayer bailouts and paying less taxes than envisioned.

Why isn't the Obama Administration speaking out?

("GE cannot afford a corporate law suit, and neither can the Obama administration. It wouldn't be pretty if a senior advisor to the president was hauled through the courts. There's a chance it would not just be GE that went down in the wake of such a case.

The President of the United States knows that the radiation from Fukushima is worse than it would have been had the reactors used at the plant been of a different design.

Known to the US government, the delicate and hazardous task of removing and storing the spent fuel rods is going to take years, and that one mistake can exacerbate the problems ten-fold.")

We are being used as pawns in a political game by governments and corporations who refuse to even admit there's a problem, and the Obama Administration is right in the middle of it.

Meanwhile, the lives of tens of millions of people, and the entire human species is at extreme risk.

Japan, I would favor believing a scientist that has a proven track record, and imprisoned for truth telling. Wouldn't you?

There is a lot of secrecy and lies by both governments, regulators and the nuclear industry. They are covering up the true consequences of nuclear effects on entire life cycles and it's non-reversible consequences for millions of years, resulting in a deadly heritage for generations to come.


This all is still going on, we all need to learn the truth and become experts or perish by staying ignorant and suffering the consequences!!


There are many unsung heroes that are fighting the good fight, worthy of your time and energy as well.


1. Yury Bandazhevsky; he became a political prisoner for telling the truth in his studies about low level internal contamination first in animals studies and then in human studies which confirmed what he was finding in animals. He was held in jail on trumped up charges for years, before human rights organizations helped him be released from prison, but he was still under house arrest. This one example illustrates the power of the nuclear monopoly and the complete domination as well as influence that they have in politics, the mass media, the military, United Nations and in communities, globally.

we need to start a class action law suit against GE and Obama
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53626773


Throw all the shills and trolls who side with them in the lawsuit too please!
 Quoting: Chugiakian


Hundreds of people filed a group action lawsuit Jan. 30 against the manufacturers of the reactors at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant to apportion blame for the accident that occurred there in March 2011.

In their quest for compensation at the Tokyo District Court, the 1,400 plaintiffs argued that the companies bear responsibility for the emotional distress they suffered after the reactor meltdowns.

The plaintiffs include evacuees from the Fukushima disaster caused by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami. They are suing General Electric Japan, Hitachi Ltd. and Toshiba Corp., which produced the reactors used at the facility, even though the nuclear damage compensation facilitation law stipulates that only facility operators have an obligation to pay reparations in the event of an accident.

“Funds for compensation paid by Tokyo Electric Power Co. to disaster victims are originally from electricity charges and taxpayer money,” said Akihiro Shima, the plaintiffs' attorney, at a news conference in Tokyo the same day. It is unfair for reactor makers to shoulder no liability, the lawyer added.

Of the plaintiffs, 1,000 are Japanese, including 38 residents of Fukushima Prefecture. The remaining 400 are from South Korea, Taiwan and other countries and regions that have nuclear plants.

re: The rumor floating around the Internet that the Fukushima Debris Field is the size of Texas...

[link to marinedebris.noaa.gov]

I just finished the math and the "Japan Tsunami Marine Debris" (JTMD) is 1.45 times the size of Texas...


avg length of longitude Length of Latitude
962.7 km
851.3 km Area of JTMD
907 km 1112 km 1008584 square kilometers
Area of JTMD 1,008,584 km2

Area of Texas 268,820 sq miles (696,241 km²) 696,241 km²
The Area of the JTMD is 1.45 the size of Texas 1.448613339 1.45 times greater than Texas

reference:
To find the area of a rectangle, multiply the length by the width. The formula is:
A = L x W, where A is the area, L is the length, W is the width, and • means multiply

I also did the math as to distance/time. The following is something I wrote and posted on several GLP threads...

This is very real folks.


NOAA admits that there are no satellite photos of the JTMD (Japan Tsunami Marine Debris), so your statement is quite correct.

Now the question comes...

Why are there no satellite photos of the JTMD?

Well, I did the math, and guess what?

The last commuter model depiction was on Dec 3, 2013 which was 999 days after the tsunami.

The leading edge of the debris field is located at 6868 miles to the east of Fukushima between the 30th and 40th parallels (it went south a little bit). That's 85% of the way to the west coast of the U.S. and Mexico. It's been travelling a little less than 7 nautical miles a day.

The total distance between Fukushima and the California coast is about 8070 nautical miles.

Using the precise average per day momentum (6.874874875 nautical miles per day) with 1,174 miles to go, the expected date of its arrival in northern California (where it will hit first) is Monday, May 26, 2014.

The frontal assault of the debris field is 950 nautical miles (as per the NOAA graphic). The width of the debris field is 490 miles.

By simple estimation, when the frontal assault lands on U.S. & Mexican soil, it will remain as a mass (at least initially). This means that 1093 miles of shoreline will be impacted by debris that will extend 564 miles out into the pacific ocean.

NOAA claims in the article that the JTMD may break up, but it hasn't broken up very much since March 11, 2011. But even if it does, it only means the that width of the debris field will be less, but the frontal assault will be greater.

So if, for instance, that the JTMD will break up by 50%, fifty percent more shoreline will be impacted, and those numbers are: A frontal assault of 1640 miles against the shoreline with a debris field that is 245 wide.

Simply stated that people will be very surprised if my analysis is accurate to almost any probable degree.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16824975


The Japan Tsunami Marine Debris (field) is within about 90% of an area delineated by main latitude and longitude lines that appear on globes and Google Earth (when lat/long lines are selected).

Here is an image of the Pacific Ocean with the JTMD and the dashed lines indicating the area where possible impact could occur on land...

[link to i.imgur.com]

In the NOAA JTMD pdf, you will notice that lat/long lines appear as squares. This means that they are all perfectly straight lines and they do not meet at the poles. This type of map is called a "Mercator Projection." In the image below taken from the NOAA pdf, you will notice the "squared" lat/long lines. About 90% of the debris field fits within the lines of Latitude and Longitude.

[link to i.imgur.com]

It is important to note that NOAA selected 475 and 950 (nautical) miles as its correlating measuring tool. Most such measuring tools use a decimal like system such as 10-20-30 or 50-100-150. NOAA chose these unusual numbers for an obviously good reason. In the next image you will see that the leading edge of the debris field is precisely 950 (nautical) miles from the nearest land mass.

[link to i.imgur.com]

Ironically, when the NOAA measuring tool is rotated 90°, the north-south measurement at the longest point is also 950 (nautical) miles.

[link to i.imgur.com]

To accurately measure a large area on a map using lat/long, a more accurate map projection has to be used. This type of map has to reflect that the lines of longitude have to meet at the poles. This type of map is called a "Conical Projection." It is used by Google Earth, airlines and scientists to name a few.

In the next image, the NOAA “Mercator Projection” was resized to fit perfectly into Google Earth’s “Conical Projection” for greater accuracy. Two portions of the debris field extend outside the boundaries of the Lat/Longs of the greatest part of the debris field.

[link to i.imgur.com]

In a seemingly crude fashion, the debris areas that extended outside the Lat/Long main debris field were cut from the surrounding areas and were pasted into the main debris field area that can now be easily measured. Here is the image of the modified debris field…

[link to i.imgur.com]

Now because the line of latitude at the N30° parallel is greater than the N40° parallel, two measurements had to be taken so that the average length between them would result in an area that would form a rectangle.

The Length of Latitude at the N30° parallel was measured at 962.7 km
The Length of Latitude at the N40° parallel was measured at 851.3 km

The average width of these two lines of latitude is 907 km

Measuring the Length of the lines of longitude results between the N30° & N40° = 1112 km

The formula for measuring the area of a rectangle is A=L*W (area = length times width).
The result of 907km times 1112km = 1,008,584 km² (square kilometers).

As per Google: The area of Texas is 696,241 km²
[link to www.google.com (secure)]

1,008,584 km² is 1.45 times the area of 696,241 km² …

Therefore, the JTM Debris Field is 1.45 times the area of Texas.

We ordered a DVD of "China Syndrome" produced in 1979 and released four days before Three Mile Island disaster -- a cosmic coincidence, if there ever was one.

Give "China Syndrome" a look. Rating: 10 out of 10.

The movie starred Jack Lemmon as an engineer in a nuke plant whose career was based on the fact that he drank the Koolaid and believed that safety precautions were always to the max.

Then he found out that an inspector lied about checking the original welds on the water system.

When the power company thugs failed to kill Jack, although they succeeded in running the car of a freelance video editor off the road down a cliff - they then brought in a SWAT team which shot Jack at point blank range several times.

Also starred Jane Fonda as the pretty newscaster who got sick of being stereotyped, and Michael Douglas, as a radical cameraman - and Douglas also produced the film, after he produced "One Over The Cuckoo's Nest".

I remember an initiative on the California ballot back in the late 1970's, on nuclear plant development.

Stupid people vote. That is democracy.

All nuke plants should be scrapped, and the clean-up should have begun yesterday.

Many, many yesterdays ago.

The Length of Latitude at the N40° parallel was measured at 851.3 km

The average width of these two lines of latitude is 907 km

Measuring the Length of the lines of longitude results between the N30° & N40° = 1112 km

The formula for measuring the area of a rectangle is A=L*W (area = length times width).
The result of 907km times 1112km = 1,008,584 km² (square kilometers).

As per Google: The area of Texas is 696,241 km²

1,008,584 km² is 1.45 times the area of 696,241 km² …

Therefore, the JTM Debris Field is 1.45 times the area of Texas.
