  1. Japan with their usual secretiveness have broken the food chain. Instead of being honest about something so important, they let the corporate leaders decide…….and corporations do not make good government……they have no soul, and no mind for the future. They covered it up, and for two and a half years, have done nothing.

    Russia had their problem almost 30 years ago…..they moved everyone out of harm’s way, they covered it with concrete, and kept everyone out of the area of danger. That is the difference between a mindful government and a greedy corporation. They buried it in concrete within three weeks. They offered to help Japan over a year ago, Japan declined.

    Russia weren’t stupid enough to put a nuclear plant on Oceanside…..they had it well inland. It did a lot of damage, but they acted to fix it. Yes, they have had cancer since, some of their people died, more probably will, but at least they acted.
    Japan did none of these things. Instead, they lied, said it was fine, would not accept any help from other nations. The greedy corporation TEPCO didn’t want it to get out, it might cost them business down the road…..to hell with the miserable people.
    Two years ago, they offered free trips to fifty thousand tourists to visit Japan. All they tourists had to do was lie and say it was safe……..
    We don’t know how many have already died, or how many are sick, but thousands are going to suffer and die from this. Japan is so damn deceptive, they are offering free rent to pregnant women if they move to Fukushima. What kind of government is that? Why would they do such a thing?
    After a full two and one half years of ongoing nuclear poisons pouring into our atmosphere, killing our fish, our sea life, birds and people, they finally accepted some help from the US. Who is working there? You’d think they would have scientists and the like, but oh no, they have people in there who owe loan sharks money and are working off their debts. They have truck drivers who earn about $15.00 an hour. I read they are thinking of conscripting people to work there. Now, that it is a full scale global disaster, they admit they need help.
    Salmon are showing up yellow in color. No sardines, our star fish look like goo…….it is awful. Plutonium is now in the blue fin tuna, very high on the food chain. That means all the other smaller sea life have it, too. It is no longer safe to eat anything from the ocean. It is already too toxic. They have been dumping poisons into it from the beginning, and lying about it.
    I cannot believe how angry and disgusted I am. This ought to show the world why corporations cannot run nations.
    Personally, I would like to take all the Japanese leaders, and lock them inside of the Fukushima reactors until they die…..because that is what they are causing for the rest of us.
    We may well become extinct thanks to the greedy bastards.
    All the birds, all the sea life of the Pacific Ocean (I’m 4th generation San Francisco born) that I have grown up with and loved are being destroyed. By 2016, the Pacific Ocean will be 100% toxic. Nobody will be able to swim in it, eat from it, or enjoy it.
    Angry? You damn right, and so should the rest of the world. A sane world would follow Germany’s example. They plan to have all their nuclear reactors shut down by 2020. Idiot Obama wants to build a new one here in the states……..all for the corporations, who cares how many people die?
    Thank you again for staying on this very important story.
