Radiation detected in Massachusetts rainwater as Fukushima crisis worsens

The Fukushima crisis continues to worsen by the day, with nuclear experts around
the world finally realizing and admitting we've all been lied to. "I think maybe
the situation is much more serious than we were led to believe," said Najmedin
Meshkati of the University of Southern California, in a Reuters report ( That same article
revealed that recent radiation readings at Fukushima show "contamination 100,000
times normal in water at
reactor No. 2 and 1,850 times normal in the nearby sea."

rainwater has also been found to be contaminated with low levels of radiation
from Fukushima,
indicating just how widespread the radioactive fallout has become. It's not just
the West Coast of North America that's vulnerable, in other words: even the East
Coast could receive dangerous levels of fallout if Fukushima suffers a larger
release of radioactive material into the air.

Rolling blackouts are now
continuing throughout Japan
due to the drop in power
production from Fukushima diminishing Japan's electricity generating capacity
( The only reason Japan
isn't experiencing widespread power blackouts right now is because so
many factories were damaged or swept away from the tsunami itself. Once a
serious rebuilding effort gets underway, Japan is going to find itself
critically short of electrical power.

The radiation leaking from
Reactor No. 2 is now measured at 1,000 millisieverts an hour -- more than
enough to cause someone's hair to fall out from a single exposure event.
Radiation sickness can begin at just 100 millisieverts. The extremely high
levels of radiation are, in fact, making it nearly impossible for workers to
continue working at the reactor. "You'd have a lot of difficulty putting anyone
in there," said Richard Wakeford, a radiation epidemiology expert at the Dalton
Nuclear Institute in Manchester. "They're finding quite high levels of radiation
fields, which is impeding their progress dealing with the situation." (

Taiwan looking to ditch nuclear power?The
worsening Fukushima situation is also starting to spook nearby nations such as
Taiwan, which also
depends on nuclear power. The DPP opposition party there announced today
that it wanted to see nuclear power phased out by 2025. Taiwan is a relatively
small island nation, and a Fukushima-like catastrophe would leave most of the
island residents with nowhere to go. And like Japan, Taiwan is also vulnerable
to earthquakes and tsunamis (as well as hurricanes).

In Germany, massive
demonstrations (200,000 people in four large cities) have brought the nuclear
safety issue to the forefront, contributing heavily to the defeat of Merkel and
the rise to power of the Green Party in southwestern Germany ( Germans tend to have
very strong opposition to nuclear power, in much the same way that most
Europeans despise genetically modified foods.

The nuclear power industry turns out to be
just as corrupt as Big
The truth is that many nations are rethinking nuclear power
right now
, thanks to the corruption, cover-ups and
outright deceptions that we're now finding out were behind the Fukushima power
plant catastrophe. The nuclear industry, it turns out, is one big profit
incest fest
where the regulators are deeply in
bed with the very industry they're supposed to regulate (

Then again,
what rich, powerful industry isn't in bed with its regulators? It's true
with Big Pharma and the FDA just as much as it is with the nuclear power
industry and its corrupt regulators. Every government-run regulator
eventually becomes a marketing extension of the industry it was supposed to

That's why Big Government never really works: Most of the
regulators who are supposed to protect the people inevitably end up operating as
industry whores. This entire Fukushima incident is a direct result of
that deep-rooted corruption coming back to haunt humanity.

  1. Nuclear Power is ill power. Once the trangression is released--its destruction is shown.
