Canada’s record of Chernobyl fallout:
“A large number of radionuclides released by the Chernobyl nuclear reactor were detected in air and river water samples collected in the Quebec region of eastern Canada. Analysis of the data supports the view that three waves of airborne radioactivity entered eastern Canada between 6 May 1986 and the end of June 1986. The first two waves would have followed an Arctic route and arrived over Quebec on 6 May and around 14 May respectively. The third wave would have been carried by the prevailing westerly winds across the Pacific Ocean and arrived over Quebec around 25–26 May. On 25 June and thereafter, Chernobyl radioactivity was undetectable in our airfilters but was still being detected in the St Lawrence river in March 1987.” http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_o … a3f5135048

[Renowned radiation biologist Edmund Lengfelder:] There is a rule of thumb: For a nuclide such as cesium-137, the half-life of 30 years. It takes ten half-lives, so you can populate an area again, making a total of 300 years. But in Japan is still added a difficulty: the nuclear fission process, radioactive substances, it is called the radioactive inventory of a reactor. In a boiling water reactor in Fukushima this inventory is 30 to 40 times as high as in Chernobyl, it can thus escape much more radiation. If we summarize it: In Japan, more people are concerned because the population density is higher than in Chernobyl and there is a higher contamination.” [posted 3-21] http://enenews.com/fukushima-radioactive-inventory-is-30-to-40-times-as-high-as-in-chernobyl-radiation-expert
Hazards of Low Level Radioactivity www.ratical.org/radiation/HoLLR.html : Dr. Ernest Sternglass explains: “When the radiation from such isotopes as strontium-89 and 90 in the bone marrow mutates an existing virus that invades the T-cells of the immune system and kills them in the process of replication, the stage is set for the complete collapse of the immune defenses, and resulting death from opportunistic infections or cancer.” (“The Implications of Chernobyl for Human Health”, International Journal of Biosocial Research, p. 19, July 1986)
“In l997 former US Defense Secretary, William Cohen,while engaged in a News Briefing at the University of Georgia, spoke the following words while talking in general about weapons that various terrorists groups might be building: ‘Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.’ ” http://trugreenmyblog.wordpress.com/
“Since 03-11-11 to 03-23-11 there have been 731 earthquakes… Japan is one giant volcano”. Can HAARP do this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1yIfOYQWxA&feature=player_embedded#at=201

“Never before has a computer virus been able to manipulate devices in the physical world as would human hands. Stuxnet is a computer worm –or virus– that was developed for the purposes of manipulating and sabotaging industrial controls inside factories, power plants and electric utilities that use Siemens SIMATIC, WinCC (Windows) and PCS7 control systems. As such, CNET describes it as ‘the first-ever control system malware’…believed to be industrial espionage of the most sophisticated order… In reality, very little is known for certain about Stuxnet –with its unique ability to subvert every known security system and physically manipulate its surroundings– has ushered humankind into a potentially scary new age where computer viruses can interact with the material world like they own the place.” http://ca.askmen.com/entertainment/special_feature_3800/3806_stuxnet.html

In 1979, Three Mile Island did not explode. We were told there had been a partial meltdown and elevated levels of fallout were not significant enough to cause a public risk, but a group of Japanese visitors who came specifically to learn about TMI found a very different situation.
Excerpt from the Fallout page, www.polioforever.wordpress.com/fallout/ :
Three Mile Island: The People’s Testament , Aileen M. Smith March 27, 1989 http://www.tmia.com/node/118
…”Interviewees said on the day of the accident, and for the next couple of days, a powdery ash fell and collected on everything. From the first day, Wednesday March 28, a strong and nauseating metallic taste began affecting them. People and animals stumbled and fell. They felt numbness in their legs and tingling or burning, sometimes a peppery rash. Veterinarian Robert Weber reported in his recollection made in 1982, “Immediately after the accident at TMI, we had many sheep and goats that couldn’t get up. Also, we had troubles with sheep just being found dead. Goats just being found dead…through that summer of 1979.” Weber said there were high numbers of stillbirths and an inability of the pregnant animals to deliver. Local farmers often went through him and filed reports with the Agriculture bureau, only to learn later from officials that no such reports existed. By 1982, he said “Cancer is our big deal now…We are finding the cancers in the uterus, the mammary systems, the lymphatics…I see this curve”.
Betty Fawber said of her animals, “After the accident happened…we’d go up and there’d be chickens that were dead. Just one at a time. Unexplained. We had maybe about six like that…The chickens started dying like that, I’d say, maybe 6 months after the accident…I had two rabbits and one had a litter of 7 bunnies, but they were all born dead. They looked perfect but they were dead.” Betty was sensitive to the ‘venting’, as were others, developing a burning rash on her skin and in her throat and sinuses. She said,” The first year..there were about 47 times when this burning happened….45 times..we accounted [in the newspaper] that they did vent….Last year  sometime..we saw or heard that they were deliberately venting each day”…
President Obama called for the construction of 45 new nuclear power plants. The U.S. is in the midst of an ideological “nuclear renaissance” –officials have every reason NOT to tell us of radioactive fallout danger. During the 1950s, when “peaceful atoms” were to justify the creation of weapons and usher in the age of global cooperation, an intense climate of suppression and secrecy surrounded the medical findings of scientists. The public propaganda of the Atomic Energy Commission under the leadership of Lewis L. Strauss, gave us the “Sunshine” campaign. In reality, the Health Physics researchers were desperately collecting and arranging new data. www.polioforever.wordpress.com/health-physics/ Dr. John Gofman, former Manhattan Project scientist and Establishment defector, spread the news that the AEC policy stating “the solution to pollution is dilution” was unofficially official.
During the Chernobyl crisis, there was political currency in reporting a fallout threat, and still the world waited a decade, and longer, to learn more about what happened. Many people have said that the Chernobyl accident forced the USSR into the policy of Glasnost with its neighbors and contributed greatly to the dissolution of the Soviet system. Nuclear accidents are everybody’s business.
The Fukushima explosion http://news.yahoo.com/video/world-15749633/24503911#video=24503626 Special U.S. ‘radiation units’ of the military are en route to Fukushima and they probably have something you don’t have: http://citizen2009.wordpress.com/2010/01/18/anti-radiation-drugs/, developed with Project BioShield funds.
Rising fallout reaching the jetstreams travels ahead of weather. This map shows windspeeds at 80-100 miles per hour.
‘Air’ distances between the world’s major cities http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/a0759496.html; Tokyo to Los Angeles 5,433 miles; Fallout in the jetstream can potentially reach the West Coast in as few as 54 hours. This will likely stay aloft for a long time, perhaps years. Lower altitude fallout will travel with the weather.
March 14: a third blast at the Fukushima plant (No.2) was reported just after 17::00 hours EDT, March 14. The Navy vessel USS Ronald Reagan, 100 miles offshore at Fukushima earlier today was required to move out of the area and discontinue fly-over attempts after 17 crew members aboard helicopters were exposed.
“The blast tore through the unit 2 structure at the Fukushima Daiichi complex and a hole has been found in the container…there is also currently a fire in unit 4 reactor [fuel pool]. Prime minister Naoto Kan said radiation has spread from the reactors..” http://uk.news.yahoo.com/5/20110315/twl-radiation-leaks-after-third-japanese-3fd0ae9.html
“..this could become Chernobyl on steroids” http://www.democracynow.org/2011/3/15/this_could_become_chernobyl_on_steroids
(March 15) — Contamination is at dangerous levels locally in Japan with plumes of radiation feeding a fallout cloud that is dispersing whichever way the winds blow. High altitude fallout should already be streaming over North America at low levels. Radioactivity levels will pick up as fallout pushes out of the jetstream and lower altitude currents reach populations on the ground. Americans on the West Coast should take precautions today. Fallout is NOT like a “chest x-ray”–it’s a chemically dirty mix of biologically incompatible radioisotopes, many toxic for days, some for weeks, and others for months and years. Take an appropriate iodine supplement to prevent the uptake of radioactive iodine 131. The best prevention is to limit outdoor activity and wear long pants/sleeves; change and put the clothes in the laundry. Store a drinking water supply for a minimum of 30 days. Stay out of the rain. Curtail or postpone plans for voluntary x-rays or other non-necessary medical proceedures, at least for the coming month and as long as dangerous levels of fallout are emitted, adding 2 weeks. Nuclear fallout is a cumulative poison. Preventing avoidable exposure NOW will help us when exposure and contamination is unavoidable.
Vaccines and antibiotics should particularly be avoided for 30 days following even low-level radiation exposure.
UPDATE: March 16, ..”a surge in radiation made it too dangerous for workers to remain at the facility…’So the workers cannot carry out even minimal work at the plant right now’…Experts say exposure of around 1,000 millisieverts is enough to cause radiation sickness… Officials said they would use helicopters and fire trucks.” http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/as_japan_earthquake
“High radiation levels prevented a helicopter from flying to the site to drop water into the No. 3 reactor to try to cool its fuel rods…The plant operator described No. 3 as the “priority.” No more information was available, but that reactor is the only one at Daiichi which uses plutonium in its fuel mix… water was being poured into reactors No. 5 and 6, indicating the entire six-reactor facility was now at risk of overheating…”This is a slow-moving nightmare,” said Dr Thomas Neff, a physicist and uranium-industry analyst at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.” http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110316/ts_nm/us_japan_quake
