Fukushima: A Nuclear War without a War

The Unspoken Crisis of Worldwide Nuclear Radiation

Michel Chossudovsky (Editor)

I-Book No. 3, January 25  2012

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.

“In December of 2011 when TEPCO announced that they had safely contained the Fukushima Daiichi plants in a cold shutdown, Arnie commented “Well, to me this announcement sounds a little bit like George Bush on the deck of the aircraft carrier declaring that the mission has been accomplished. In fact, we all know how that turned out, and I think Fukushima is going down a very similar road. This is a long battle and it is far from being over.”  Two years later, it’s still far from over. “

BBC breaking news shows Fukushima protester interrupting high-profile press conference — Televised for nearly 2 minutes, event ended abruptly (VIDEO)

Title: Vicky Pryce Trial: Anti-Nuclear Campaigner Stuart Holmes Reveals Why He Is Protesting At Court
Source: Huffington Post UK
Author: Christopher York
Date: March 7, 2013

Watch any recent footage of Vicky Pryce [ex-wife of former UK energy secretary Chris Huhne]  approaching Southwark Crown Court and behind the defendant and the gaggle of lawyers, press and TV crews waiting outside, you might just catch a glimpse of Stuart William Holmes. […]

At the time of the catastrophe, Chris Huhne was the UK energy minister and was heavily criticised by some for his response to Fukushima.

E-mails that surfaced after the event appeared to show Huhne co-ordinating a strategy with the nuclear industry to play down the effects of the disaster.

At the time, the UK government was trying to promote its own nuclear agenda. […]

Holmes is angry that Huhne has gone through the legal wrangler for a relatively trivial crime yet he goes unpunished for what he did as energy minister. […]

For folks in the Aichi/Nagoya area, there are 2 protests here in Nagoya on Friday evenings, the first is from 6:00 – 7:00 pm in front of Chubu Electric Company in Sakae (just down the street from the Aichi Arts Center). The second is from 6:00 – 8:00 pm in front of the Kansai Electric Company in Takaoka, Exit #1.

Looks like it might rain tomorrow evening, so take an umbrella with you just in case.
