According to this realistic view of our economy, this tragic event will actually generate revenue.

Also, there is no profit in curing cancer or any other disease for that matter...


Aint that some shit.

medicine if a for profit industry, it is NOT about creating health.

thanks for posting the link peppers. I will circulate it widely : >

Nothing new. The ruling class makes profit from war and disease. And why cure a terminally ill person when you can potentially continue to extract money from them for years after their initial diagnosis until they finally take their last breath.

True dat!

In the case of the UK, that has a taxpayer funded health service, maybe there's a strong case for nationalising the drug companies?

The NRC is an ineffective"inside" joke with obvious fatal flaws in its regulation abilities.
Nuclear reactors around the world are terribly unsafe and ill designed, but continue to operate regardless.
Containment doesn`t contain and vents cause more problems than they solve.
And when reactors fail and meltdown, tax payers have to pick up most of the huge tab because of faulty legislation that puts a $ cap on corporate liability.

Once again, Arnie Gunderson explains clearly and precisely how this can be.

Just wait till human kids start being born with no ears (and worse)

Given their history, that's gonna go down like a lead balloon!

TEPCO: reactor damage includes holes
The operator of the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant says data analyses suggest damage to its reactors may have caused cracks and openings in the reactor containment vessels equivalent to a 10-centimeter hole.

Reactors 1 through 3 at the plant suffered nuclear fuel meltdowns after the March 11th earthquake and tsunami. This is likely to have created holes and cracks at the bottom of the pressure vessels protecting the reactor cores and damaged the containment vessels.

Massive amounts of highly radioactive water also leaked from the structures.

Tokyo Electric Power Company analyzed the changes in pressure levels inside the pressure and containment vessels to gauge the scope of the damage.

TEPCO said the analyses show that holes in the Number 1 reactor containment vessel amounting to 3 centimeters in total may have formed 18 hours after the quake. It said that may have expanded to 7 centimeters at least 50 hours after the quake.

The utility said holes and cracks equivalent to 10 centimeters in diameter may have formed in the Number 2 reactor's containment vessel about 21 hours after the quake. It said a similar amount of holes could have been created in the suppression pool chamber by an explosion heard coming from there on March 15th.

TEPCO said these results were obtained through data calculations, and that it has yet to confirm whether such holes actually exist.

Triple meltdown finally confirmed.
http://news.yahoo.com/video/world-15749633/25324521

Yes. They were lying about it the entire time.







More evidence that reactor plants are poorly engineered and regulated.
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110527/ap_ ... unami_risk

So what`s the big deal?
Is this the price we pay for "cheap" fuel?

NEWS FLASH: We will still pay the same inflated prices for our fuel needs regardless of origin. These are publicly funded private monopolies.

a very frustrated friend from japan has been trying to get her family to leave since the incident began. They will not leave, because they say their government says everything is safe. She complains it is one of the biggest problems in Japanese society - they have a deep trust for their leadership and believe what they are told.

Germany announced today that it's knocking nuclear power on the head ...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-13592208

It will be interesting to see if they can achieve this at the same time as meeting their commitment to cut CO2 emissions!

" It is nothing short of astonishing that the nuclear catastrophe we've all been told was "no big deal" has now escalated into the worst nuclear disaster in the history of human civilization. It's so bad now that soil samples taken from outside the 12-mile exclusion zone (the zone considered safe enough by the Japanese government for schoolchildren to attend school there) are higher than the 1.48 million becquerels a square meter limit that triggered evacuations outside Chernobyl in 1986.

In other words, the radiation level of the soil 12 miles from Fukushima is now higher than the levels considered too dangerous to live in near Chernobyl. This is all coming out in a new research report authored by Tomio Kawata, a fellow at the Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan. That same report also reveals that radiation from Fukushima has spread over 230 square miles.

What we're facing here, folks, is a Fukushima dead zone where life will never return to its pre-Fukushima norms.

Radiation levels similar to nuclear bomb test site

Bloomberg is now reporting, "Tetsuya Terasawa said the radiation levels are in line with those found after a nuclear bomb test, which disperses plutonium. He declined to comment further." (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-...)

One soil sample taking 25 kilometers away from Fukushima showed Cesium-137 exceeding 5 million becquerels per square meter. This level, of course, makes it uninhabitable by humans, yet both the Japanese and U.S. governments continue to downplay the whole event, assuring their sheeple that there's nothing to worry about. By their logic, since all the people are sheeple anyway, as long as the area is safe enough for sheep, it's also safe enough for the human population.

Both Japan and the U.S. have made huge efforts to raise the limits of allowed radiation exposure in foods and beverages. This was, of course, a deceitful tactic to try to reclassify radiation contamination as somehow magically being "safe" by redefining it.

The outright lying and tactics of deception that have been used to try to downplay the severity of the radioactive fallout from Fukushima are nothing less than despicable. In a time when radiation threatens the safety and food supply of hundreds of millions of people, we are getting nothing but a Fukushima whitewash.

Fukushima is now far worse than Chernobyl ever was and yet we're all being told it's no problem and that the government has it all under control. I ask: How is 5 million becquerels per square meter not a problem? It's amazing that we even got this information, considering how frequently TEPCO claims its sensors and meters aren't working (basically any time they get a reading that's "too high").

The Japanese government can't wait to corral the sheeple back onto the radioactive soil, by the way. "Basically, the way in which the current zones have been drawn up aren't a concern in terms of the impact on health," said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano. "Using Mr. Kawata's report as a guide, we want to do what we can to improve the soil, so people can return as soon as possible." (http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-...)

Barely two weeks ago, TEPCO finally admitted Fukushima suffered multiple core meltdowns in the hours following the tsunami strike (http://www.naturalnews.com/032378_n...) (http://www.naturalnews.com/032437_F...). This was the first time TEPCO openly admitted to something the alternative media had been reporting for months.

What has become perfectly clear in the reporting on Fukushima is that:

• Governments lie to the people
• Mainstream media lies to the people
• Only the alternative media was correct in reporting the severity of the core meltdowns and the release of radioactive material into the environment.

Japan was in the news for the first few weeks of the incident but since then its not news in Australia at all. What a disgrace.

America and western countries have been prancing around the world for decades claiming we cant let less sophisticated countries use nuclear power because of the risks. Now we have japan (a so called advanced country) using ancient american GE technology completely fucking up beyond believe and hardly a word spoken. Its like Joseph Goebbels is running the worlds media.

I doubt the current administration wants to play up GE's role in the Fukeshima plant. After all, their CEO is Chairman of Obamas Economic Advisory Committee.

For that matter, they may have pretty much let BP off the hook for the Gulf spill as well. That alone must be worth millions to Obamas re-election war chest and probably a sizable donation to his future library and investment portfolio.

The media is too consumed fabricating endless, agonizing hyperbole about a mythical menace called anthropogenic global warming to pay attention to something as silly as a nuclear meltdown that has eclipsed Chernobyl in severity

you can't fool mother nature .......

A nuclear reactor in Japan was forced to shut down due to infiltration of enormous swarms of jellyfish near the power plant.

A similar incident was also reported recently in Israel when millions of jellyfish clogged down the sea-water cooling system of a power plant located there.
