Fukushima: A Nuclear War without a War

The Unspoken Crisis of Worldwide Nuclear Radiation

Michel Chossudovsky (Editor)

I-Book No. 3, January 25  2012

Global Research’s Online Interactive I-Book Reader brings together, in the form of chapters, a collection of Global Research feature articles and videos, including debate and analysis, on a broad theme or subject matter. 

 

In this Interactive Online I-Book we bring to the attention of our readers an important collection of articles, reports and video material on the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe and its impacts (scroll down for the Table of Contents).

INTRODUCTION

The World is at a critical crossroads. The Fukushima disaster in Japan has brought to the forefront the dangers of Worldwide nuclear radiation.

The crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war”. In the words of renowned novelist Haruki Murakami:

“This time no one dropped a bomb on us … We set the stage, we committed the crime with our own hands, we are destroying our own lands, and we are destroying our own lives.”

Nuclear radiation –which threatens life on planet earth– is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities.

While the long-term repercussions of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are yet to be fully assessed, they are far more serious than those pertaining to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, which resulted in almost one million deaths (New Book Concludes – Chernobyl death toll: 985,000, mostly from cancer Global Research, September 10, 2010, See also Matthew Penney and Mark Selden  The Severity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima, Global Research, May 25, 2011)

EPA’s Gina McCarthy under scrutiny

EPA Nominee Gina McCarthy under scrutiny 4 key program under her oversight ( #Radiation monitoring) has drawn sharp criticism from its internal watchdog.
Soon after a huge earthquake and tsunami damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant in March 2011, the EPA announced that its U.S. air-monitoring system had detected very low levels of radioactive material associated with the Japanese disaster.
But, as a critical report from the EPA’s inspector general later detailed, the monitoring network, known as RadNet, was in disarray when radiation began spewing from Fukushima. Fully 20 percent of RadNet monitors across the United States were inoperative, and had been for an average of 130 days.
Monitors in Fontana (San Bernardino County) and San Diego were among the 25 that were inoperative at the time of Fukushima.
In its report, the inspector general faulted maintenance of the monitors and added that implementation of the program was incomplete and years behind schedule. It blamed insufficient oversight from the office McCarthy heads as assistant administrator for air and radiation.
This week, nearly two years after Fukushima, the EPA said only that it is “actively working to address questions and concerns within the inspector general’s report.” The April 2012 inspector general’s report was unequivocal.
“Broken RadNet monitors and late filter changes impaired this critical infrastructure asset,” it said, adding that the agency “did not manage RadNet as a high-priority program.”
The report said that the problems “may reduce the availability and quality of critical data needed to assess radioactive threats to public health.”
The EPA official said this week that even with the broken monitors, the RadNet system was able to provide sufficient data to determine airborne levels of radioactivity from Fukushima, which were “well below any level of public health concern.”
Whoever is nominated by Obama to head the EPA will likely weather a contentious confirmation hearing before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
David McCumber is chief of the Hearst Newspapers Washington bureau.
