“…reactor 4 appears to have been blown to pieces as seen in this classified photo The yellow dome which should be sitting on top of reactor 4 can be clearly seen on the wrong side of the containment building. This type of destruction is is indicative of hard weaponry in use; a hydrogen air mix will not do that. Reactors are not made out of tinfoil. On top of this, there was no potential for
an explosion at reactor 4 at all, it had been defueled. SO WHAT, PRAY TELL, BLEW
IT APART? That’s the dirty question no one is asking – how did that happen?”http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima.html
–just to clear something up, the yellow lid was not blown sideways into place. I expect, if it is a reactor lid, it’s in its normal position for defueling from other pictures I’ve seen of this reactor type. There has to be a limit on how much sabotage could have occurred at Fukushima given the major psy-op taking place which must include the radiation releases. At the moment I don’t have any good information about that, just a word: perception.
There are some people finding cause to celebrate:
Message from Barbara Marx Hubbard
“Dearly Beloved Conscious Evolutionaries,
“As we suffer through the mounting crises in Japan, Libya, the Middle East, and the whole world, it is vital that we place the crises in the context of evolutionary drivers toward what is being born through us. For example, members of the Goi Peace Foundation in Japan sent out a letter to many of us saying that they have decided to invite visionaries, scientists, artists and environmentalists from all over the world to help build a New City that represents a New Civilization. As you know, we have known that ‘Our Crisis is a Birth’. Now I feel the hour of birth is near… I am really thrilled to invite you to enroll in my Agents of Conscious Evolution Training (ACE).. or those who want to embody the principles and practices of conscious evolution and to help form global teams to catalyze the Birth Day celebration on December 22, 2012. Never before..could such an opportunity be offered to us.” http://www.barbaramarxhubbard.com/site/blog/?m=201103
had a years-long collaborative partnership with Jonas Salk
, ‘spiritualizing’ his concepts of metabiology which carries on as a variety of organizations and projects such as the “Good Ancestor Principle” conference that includes other Salk collaborators and futurists. Vernor Vinge, recently mentioned in TIME magazine, is one of those people. http://www.upliftacademy.org/wiki/index.php?title=GAP2009
Quoting TIME: “The word singularity
is borrowed from astrophysics: it refers to a point in space-time –for example, inside a black hole– at which the rules of ordinary physics do not apply. In the 1980s the science-fiction novelist Vernor Vinge attached it to Good’s intelligence-explosion scenario. At a NASA symposium in 1993, Vinge announced that ‘within 30 years, we will have the technological means to create super-human intelligence. Shortly after, the human era will be ended.” http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,2048138,00.html
Feb.21, 2011, Cover “2045, The Year Man Becomes Immortal” : 2012 to 2045 is 33 years of symbolic fruition (maturity, mastery, etc). What I suppose from playing around with dates and numbers is a heavy cryptic relationship with the meltdown scenario and the Singularity expressed by the Time article, or put in other words, this is the trigger for total bioremediation which will take a full generational course of maturation to complete –a techno-generation. In principle, we’re being served an eviction notice with a grace period, perhaps, to squat in our own flesh until the robocops come.
Going back to the roots, atomic weapons were conceived to be the greatest global threat to humanity –the World War II “race for the bomb” was a hoax, begun in the 1920s– forcing One Worldism through the ultimate fear of nuclear annihilation. There is virtually no limit to the number of examples that can be drawn to illustrate this reality. Each step on the way is instructive to comprehending the means of nuclear blackmail. But the component of bioterror, and the medical programs that co-operated with nuclear proliferation, have passed us by. We conveniently believe that flu, polio, AIDS, cancers and many more diseases are viral contagions that can be blamed on social behaviors. It goes unadvertized that flu and polio (renamed and relabeled) are historic radiation illnesses and the vaccines and viruses created in their name have been the means by which the military-medical complex is altering the human genetic code. I believe that “species transformation” is the most precious goal of one-worlders on whatever level their members function, be they “right”, “left”, “libertarian”, “anti-nuclear”, “green”, “peace and justice” or any major politicized movement that involves interacting platforms. The great deception has been to steadily march us toward the same end –our own– no matter which humanitarian efforts we individually support. These are not vague notions but the relentless application of modern economics that pits states (governments and corporations) against people. When such entities are imbued with super-intelligence, or rapacious super-self-interest, they’ll be having us for breakfast as we circulate to the margins of their systems (much as they do now) only with an added peculiar quality of auto-incarceration. Sickness, or the pursuit of wellness, is a proven economic stimulus for the exchange of products and services among the entities.
It’s not possible to reckon the radiation threat from Fukushima due to obstructions of information, but if I had to guess on the trend, I’d say that the northern hemisphere has doubled its “background” without accounting for regional hotspots. Whole-body irradiation translates directly to immunosuppression.
“Fukushima escalates to worse-case possibility — Japan says that nuclear fuel in three reactors has possibly melted through the pressure vessels and accumulated in the outer containment vessels… this melt-through is far worse than a core meltdown and the worst possibility in a nuclear accident…” http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/content/2011/s3239276.htm
“The pressure vessel of the No. 1 reactor is now believed to have suffered damage just five hours after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, contrary to an estimation released by Tepco, which estimated the failure at 15 hours later. Melt-downs of the fuel in the No. 2 and No. 3 reactors followed over the following days with the molten fuel collecting at the bottom of the pressur vessels before burning through and into the external steel containment vessels.” http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2011/06/nuclear-fuel-has-melted-through-base-of.html
Yoichi Shimatsu: “On the first day of the Fukushima disaster, Tepco reported that reactors 1, 2 and 6 were operating at the time of the quake and tsunami, and that the other 3 reactors were empty of fuel rods for periodic maintenance… Then reactor 3 blows and burns, and without any correction to the first report, Tepco then says 1, 2 and 3 were operating and the others were down… Then reactor 4 building catches on fire… The fire is so extreme (for depleted uranium) that the reactor is damaged… Next, reactors 4 and 5 are found to be generating hydrogen gas… The presence of a gas build-up indicates that these two reactors contain fuel rods, contrary to Tepco claims. This means reactors 4 and 5 had recently conducted runs or were being prepared for operations of an undetermined (and unreported) nature.
The other technical mystery is that Tepco engineers suggested that the electric power inside the plant was knocked out by something other than the tsunami. I have pointed to this possibility early on, that the quake and control disruptions could have made the control computers vulnerable to the Stuxnet virus.
The other possibility to consider is that a high-power electromagnetic event (for example a sudden burst of energy from the release of ionized gases from the de-magnetized laser-plasma process) could have knocked out all electrical systems, similar to how a neutron bomb would incapacitate [a] power system. Very little of this information was recorded in..reports…” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=24364
2011: Disturbing updates
from the AP newswire say the Japanese government said far too little. A school in Namie, 6 miles from the Daiichi plant, was used as an evacuation center during an intentional release
at Fukushima, prior to the explosions. No one warned the 8,000 residents of Namie that TEPCO was venting; “transcripts indicate.. communication breakdowns… The evacuees at shelters.. were not told to move further away until March 16, five days into the crisis
… Health officials say they have no plans to prioritize radiation tests of those who were at the school… Most of Namie..has since been declared too dangerous for habitation.” http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2011/08/08/international/i215717D64.DTL
Thousands of people within the evacuation zones were exposed to lethal doses of radioactivity for days on end. Where are those people today?
“Physician and Epidemiologist Say 35% Spike in Infant Mortality
in Northwest Cities Since Meltdown Might be the Result of Fallout from Fukushima… eight cities in the northwest U.S. (Boise ID, Seattle WA, Portland OR, plus the northern California cities of Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, and Berkeley) reported the following data on deaths among those younger than one year of age: 4 weeks ending March 19, 2011 – 37 deaths (avg. 9.25 per week) [and] 10 weeks ending May 28, 2011 – 125 deaths (avg. 12.50 per week)…” The CDC additionally informs a rate increase from the approx. 7 deaths per 1000, its 2001 figure, as “All years from 2002 to 2007 were higher than the 2001 rate.” http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2011/06/physician-and-epidemiologist-say-35.html
The mortality rate covering ‘4 weeks to March 19’, obviously doesn’t include Fukushima fallout. Local radioactive environments, which could have been spiking independently, may be getting lost-in-the-stream following March 19:
Idaho, 50 radiation sites: http://www.prop1.org/prop1/radiated/id0rept.htm
Washington, 65 radiation sites: http://www.prop1.org/prop1/radiated/wa0rept.htm

California, 163 radiation sites:http://www.prop1.org/prop1/radiated/ca0rept.htm
1999-2001, rate of fetal-infant mortality deaths in the Bay Area:
“Alameda had the highest fetal-infant mortaliy rate of 9.1 per 1000 births (still and live)”
“San Francisco was near the regional mean of 7.7 [infant deaths per 1000 births]
“African Americans..[had] a fetal-infant mortality rate of 16.2 per 1000 –twice as high as all other race categories. The CDC has found similar statistics nationwide..”
2002, Seattle and King County infant mortality:
“…all time low rate of 4.5 deaths per 1000…dropped 56 percent since it peaked 20 years ago [10 per 1000]. For the first time, in 2002 Seattle’s infant mortality rate dropped below..the rest of the county… Washington State as a whole reported 5.2 deaths per 1000 births. All of these were well below the United States average of 7 deaths per 1000 births.”…but, “African-Americans [rate of 9.16] and American Indian/Alaska Native mothers reported significantly more ‘stressful life events’..[‘associated with adverse health outcomes’ such as]..racism,..changed residence, had bills they couldn’t pay, lost their job or became homeless, for example.” http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2002064782_mortality16m.html
has not maintained its infant survival. In 2008, the state Nurses Association championed a plea for awareness: “Our pubic health system is at a crisis point…We simply cannot afford any more cuts to..health funding… Washington’s..health system is in jeopardy due to [lack of] funding..[and] deterioration..[i.e] Increased..vaccine preventable disease…Increased rates of communicable disease…increased newborn and infant mortality… the system is grossly inadequate…” http://www.wsna.org/Topics/Public-Health/
The gutting of public health funding also became acute for state laboratories begining in 2005 as Bird Flu fear and preparedness became a major issue. The systematic un
funding of state health departments is part of the Pandemic Unfolding/GEIS articles in this blog. In 2007 it was widely reported that life expectancy (which includes infant death) in the U.S. dropped from 11th place in the world to 42. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/12/AR2007081200113.html

Where to put the mounting U.S. rad waste is a problem that’s been held off
since 1957 when deep underground entombment was first proposed. Over the past year, the final motions to nix the repository at Yucca Mountain were concluded just a few months before the Daiichi meltdowns. The decision was rife with machinations: “The head of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission witheld and manipulated information in an effort to stop work on..Yucca Mountain in Nevada, according to an internal investigation… The report ‘paints an embarassing picture of a bully whose use of deceit and manipulation is ruining the integrity of a..regulatory agency’… Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid..vowed to do everything in his power to kill [the Yucca Mtn project]. President Barack Obama..has moved consistently to kill it since taking office in 2009.

June 14, 2011 — Italy — “More than 94% of voters opposed the government’s plan to resume nuclear power generation… The high turnout showed ‘a will on the part of citizens to participate in decisions about our future that cannot be ignored,’ Mr. Berlusconi said… Anti-nuclear campaigners say Japan’s Fukushima disaster in March helped sway public opinion against nuclear power, which Italians rejected in a referemdum soon after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster… Germany and Switzerland have both recently announced that they will phase out nuclear power in the coming decades, while in other countries, like Britain and France, support remains strong. Italians were also asked..[to vote] on whether government ministers could be exempted from court cases… Mr. Berlusconi..is currently facing four separate trials. The special immunity granted to him by parliament has recently been struck down in the courts, and Mr. Berlusconi has agreed to attend court when not engaged on important business.

Volunteers who log and blog about radiation in northern California ask “why is there a spike registered in San Francisco around March 2?”…”my blue cobalt cloud was 3/26 and no data is on radnet for that day in Sacramento or S.F.”…”The EPA did say in a press release at some point that the monitors are taken offline when they read levels that are considered more than background radiation”…”The EPA stations for Fresno and Bakersfield have been notorious for wild swings” http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/3586?page=1
