Fukushima Crisis Coming To The U.S. – Prof: Global Media Blackout, A ‘Deadly Silence On Fukushima’

Magazine: The Fukushima Crisis Comes to the U.S. — Professor: “New and improved version of the original atomic plague is spreading”; The truth is so incomprehensible it’s easier to pretend it doesn’t exist (ENENews, Nov 12, 2013):

Esquire, Nov. 12, 2013: Fukushima Radiation Arrives In Alaska – The Fukushima Crisis Comes To The States […] The catastrophe at the Fukushima nuclear power plant — aka Yesterday’s Tragedy — appears to be ongoing, and Alaska now has become part of the story. “Some radiation has arrived in northern Alaska and along the west coast. That’s raised concern over contamination of fish and wildlife. More may be heading toward coastal communities” […] It’s past time for the world to step in because this problem now is riding on the wind and the tides to places far from Fukushima. […]

Hannah Spector, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Education at Penn State (Harrisburg), Transnational Curriculum Inquiry, 2012: […] One of the problems we face with radioactive fallout from Fukushima is the lack of information coming from “experts.” Indeed, there has been a global media blackout, a “deadly silence on Fukushima” (Norris, 2011) […] science still does not have the technological or methodological understanding to clean up the disaster (Magwood, 2012) which has leaked into the Pacific Ocean and spread throughout the northern hemisphere by way of wind and rain. This invisible truth is so incomprehensible that it is easier to pretend it doesn’t exist. […] The novelty of Fukushima is worth noting. A new and improved version of the original atomic plague is spreading across the planet through earth, air, fire, and water – yet it cannot be seen, heard, tasted, smelled, or touched. It has become part of the atmosphere. […] Where to run? Where to hide? What to do? At the same time, official reports have denied the extent of this boundary-transgressing catastrophe in both overt and covert ways. One year after Fukushima began, National Public Radio reported that “trauma, not radiation is [the] key concern in Japan” (Harris, 2012). […] focusing upon trauma as being more worrisome than possible effects of radiation contamination deflects from the crime that created the trauma to begin with, a crime that will last days, decades, and millennia into the future depending on what type of radionuclide we are talking about.

  1. At 5AM, I heard an ABC report on Fukushima. It started right, but assured everyone the radiation would be so diluted when it gets to the states NEXT March, that it won’t hurt a thing. What outright lies.
    They don’t mention all the dead fish and sea turtles, the starfish turned to goo, no sardines, the yellow salmon……..what is wrong with these people?

  2. They are silent because of corporate pressures.
    Also, they have no technology to stop the disaster that is continuing into its 33rd month…….we don’t have the ability to stop it.
    Only man is foolish enough to invent things beyond his abilities to control them.
    I lived in a coastal rainforest for a dozen years. I had wild ravens I used to feed. They are amazingly intelligent, even have different cries for the type of food being served…..they have a sound for cake, another for meat. They build tools to help them get at food, or things they need.
    But, they never build a thing they cannot control…..much wiser than man.
