– US nearly detonated atomic bomb over North Carolina – secret document (Guardian, Sep 20, 2013):
A secret document, published in declassified form for the first time by the Guardian today, reveals that the US Air Force came dramatically close to detonating an atom bomb over North Carolina that would have been 260 times more powerful than the device that devastated Hiroshima.
The document, obtained by the investigative journalist Eric Schlosser under the Freedom of Information Act, gives the first conclusive evidence that the US was narrowly spared a disaster of monumental proportions when two Mark 39 hydrogen bombs were accidentally dropped over Goldsboro, North Carolina on 23 January 1961. The bombs fell to earth after a B-52 bomber broke up in mid-air, and one of the devices behaved precisely as a nuclear weapon was designed to behave in warfare: its parachute opened, its trigger mechanisms engaged, and only one low-voltage switch prevented untold carnage.

– Russian meteor exploded with force of 30 Hiroshima bombs (Telegraph, Feb 16, 2013):
The 55 foot wide rock, said by Nasa to have a mass of 10,000 tonnes, lit up the sky above the Urals region on Friday morning, causing shockwaves that injured 1,200 people and damaged thousands of homes in an event unprecedented in modern times.
Nasa estimated that the energy released as the meteor’s disintegrated in the atmosphere was 500 kilotons, around 30 times the size of the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
– 66 years later, Japan dropped more than 168 Hiroshima atomic bombs on itself (Cs-137 base) (Fukushima Diary, Aug 5, 2012):
At 8:15 AM 67 years ago, Hiroshima got the first atomic bomb in the world.
So far, 280,959 people died. Only within this year, no less than 5,729 people are added to the list. (cf. Ministry of health concealed the survey data of atomic bomb victims)
They hold a ceremony every year and state they won’t let the world repeat the same tragedy, but Japanese government is still reluctant to admit the fact that black rain fell not to pay the compensation.
As a matter of fact, they shall give the statement to themselves.
According to the report of Japanese government in 2011, which is presumed to be the most moderate estimate, Fukushima reactor1 ~ 3 emit as 168 times much cesium-137 as Hiroshima atomic bomb by August of 2011.
When it comes to Iodine-131, it was 63,000 tera-Bq in Hiroshima, where it was 160,000 tera-Bq in Fukushima. As to Strontium-90, it was 58 tera-Bq in Hiroshima, where it was 140 tera-Bq.
Moreover, there was no emission of Cs-134 in Hiroshima, so it is not comparable with Fukushima.
The data is not published to count possible emission from reactor4, also, sea contamination is not counted either.
It has been about 17 months since 311. It’s been like having a Hiroshima atomic bomb every 3 days since 311.
It can be more than that in reality because radiation still keeps leaking.

Remember the interview with Leuren Moret where she stated that the US has been doing radiation effect research for all those years (to this day) using the Japanese people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki as guinea pigs?
– #Radiation in Japan: Map of “Black Rain” Finally Made 66 Years After Hiroshima Bombing (EX-SKF, Dec. 20, 2011):
Speaking of RERF – Radiation Effect Research Foundation – which succeeded the notorious ABCC – Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission – in 1975, RERF just came up with the area map of so-called “black rain” after the Hiroshima bombing. They had the survey data of 13,000 people all along, but sat on it for 66 years.
And surprise, surprise. The map shows the area where the “black rain” – radioactive fallout that fell with the rain – fell to be much, much bigger than what the government has admitted so far.
And not at all surprisingly, Toshiteru Okubo, chairman of RERF, says “Personally I do not think this data is important. It’s hard to believe the black rain caused an acute radiation sickness anyway.”
The chairman is right. People who have said they suffer the effect of radioactive fallout that they received by the black rain are not suffering an acute radiation sickness that would have caused them to die in a short period of time after the exposure.
From Yomiuri Shinbun, local Hiroshima version (12/21/2011):
日 米の共同研究機関・放射線影響研究所（放影研、広島市南区・長崎市）が、原爆投下後に降った「黒い雨」を浴びた約１万３０００人の調査データを基に作製し た分布図が公表された２０日、援護策の拡充を求める住民団体などから「援護地域の拡大につながる可能性がある」と期待の声が上がった。一方、放影研は「新 しく判明したことはない」と健康被害の解明には否定的だが、国の検討会にデータが提供される見通しで、援護地域見直しをめぐる議論が注目される。
On December 20, Radiation Effect Research Foundation, a cooperative Japan-US research organization (RERF, Minami-ku in Hiroshima City and in Nagasaki City) disclosed the distribution map of “black rain” that fell after the nuclear bomb exploded over Hiroshima. The map was created from the survey data of about 13,000 people who were exposed to the black rain. Citizens’ groups calling for more assistance for the bomb victims are hopeful that this may result in more areas becoming eligible for assistance. On the other hand, RERF says “There is no new discovery”, insisting [the map] would not help in understanding health damages. But it is likely that the data will be submitted to a study group of the national government, and discussions may ensue as to whether the support areas should be revised.
– Alice in wonderland (Fukushima Diary, Nov. 15, 2011):
Today I appeared to somewhere official.
4 men interrogated me.
They wanted to make up a story that I was an international criminal or something.
It was a strange spectacle.
They tried to make me state I was involved in an international money laundering though I only bought an A-bike on eBay.
and I explained how risky the internal exposure of tritium is. lol
I told them to evacuate too ,but they were too busy at suspecting me.
It makes me feel like I’m alice in wonderland.
Nobody seems to care about radiation around in Tokyo.
Once you mention radiation,they’d call you ambulance.
Anyway,the result of today’s interrogation is supposed to come out around on 25th.
If it’s not friendly enough, I might need to emigrate to North Korea by boat.
It is the safest country because there is nothing to eat.
No risk of internal exposure.
