Fukushima now in state of emergency, leaking 300 tons of radioactive water into the ocean daily

Japan's nuclear watchdog has now declared the leak of radioactive water from Fukushima a "state of emergency." Each day, 300 tons of radioactive water seeps into the ocean, and it's now clear that TEPCO has engage in a two-and-a-half-year cover-up of immense magnitude.

"I believe it's been leaking into the ocean from the start of the crisis two-and-a-half years ago," disclosed a 12-year TEPCO veteran named Suzuki-san (SOURCE)

"There are still reactor buildings we haven't gotten into yet," said another worker named Fujimoto-san. "So there's always the possibility of another explosion..."

TEPCO workers sprayed with wildly radioactive water while waiting for a bus

Just how out of control is the situation at Fukushima? It's so out of control that TEPCO recently had to admit 10 of its workers were somehow -- yeah, see if you can figure this out -- sprayed with highly radioactive water while waiting for a bus.

"The workers' exposure above the neck was found to be as much as 10 becquerels per square centimeter," reports Bloomberg.com

How exactly did highly radioactive water manage to find its way to a bus stop in the first place? TEPCO isn't sure. It's confusing with all those radiation alarms going off all the time. In order to concentrate, the company has found it's easier to just disable all the alarms and pretend nothing's wrong.

The TEPCO cover-up

To fully grasp the extent of the TEPCO denial, realize that only recently did the company finally admit that radioactive groundwater has been leaking into the ocean. This follows years of stark denials from the company, whose executes have exhibited a remarkable ability to deny reality even when their own workers are dying in droves from cancer.

It's no exaggeration to say that TEPCO's downplaying of the full extent of the Fukushima disaster has put tens of millions of lives at risk -- people who should have been warned about radiation but were denied that information due to the TEPCO cover-up.

"At this current time in July of 2013, Fukushima is 80 to 100x more expansive and more intense -- letting out about 100x more of the radiation of Chernobyl," reports Dr. Simon Atkins Phoenix Rising Radio on a BlogTalkRadio interview.

"The problem with Fukushima is that it's not only continuing for 865 days... I mean, let's wrap our minds around that for a second -- it has been leaking out radiation in increasing volumes for 865 days."

Japan is a society that shuns whistleblowers

Why has TEPCO been able to cover up the truth about Fukushima for so long? Because Japan is a society of mass conformity. The idea of keeping your head down and not "rocking the boat" is deeply embedded in Japanese culture.

Japan is not a nation of "rugged individualism" but of conformist acquiescence.

As a result, whistleblowers are shunned, and there is immense peer pressure to defend the status quo... even when it's a terrible lie. This culture of conformity at all costs is precisely what allows companies like TEPCO to continue operating extremely dangerous nuclear power plants with virtually no accountability.

While Japan has entire museums dedicated to the horrifying history of two Japanese cities being bombed by the United States at the end of World War II, when Japan's own power company is involved in a radiological disaster of similar magnitude, the entire incident gets swept under the rug. Radiation? What radiation? If the government says there's no radiation, then there's no radiation! After all, it's invisible!

Why the U.S. government plays along with the cover-up

The U.S. government, of course, plays along with the charade because its own top weapons manufacturer -- General Electric -- designed and built the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in the first place. And the design decisions made by GE, such as storing spent fuel rods in large pools high above the ground, now look not just incompetent but downright idiotic. It turns out there was never any long-term plan to dispose of the spent fuel rods. The idea was to just let them build up over time until someone else inherited the problem.

So while Japan and the USA play this game of "let's all pretend nothing happened," citizens of both countries continue to be exposed to a relentless wave of deadly radiation that now dwarfs the total radiation release of Chernobyl (which the U.S. media played up in a huge way because the disaster made the Russians look incompetent).

The only reason TEPCO is finally getting around to admitting the truth in all this is because you can't rig all the Geiger counters forever. Radiation follows the laws of physics and atomic decay, not the whims of lying politicians and bureaucrats. As a result, the real story eventually comes out as we're starting to see right now.

The Fukushima disaster is likely to get far worse, if you can believe that

The upshot is that the Fukushima disaster is not only far worse than you've been told; it's very likely going to be worse than you could ever imagine. The radiation leak isn't plugged, in other words, and another explosion -- which many experts believe might be imminent -- would release thousands of times more nuclear material into the open environment.

Ultimately, the entire Northern hemisphere has been placed at risk by a bunch of corporate bureaucrats who thought building a nuclear facility in the path of a sure-to-happen tidal wave was a fantastic idea. Instead of acknowledging the problem and working to fix it like a responsible person would, our world's top politicians and ass-coverers have decided it is in their best short-term interests to play along with the TEPCO fairy tale which ridiculously pretends that radioactive leaks can be controlled by wishful thinking.

Remember: Governments can lie about the national debt, health care costs, inflation and unemployment, but they cannot lie about radiation for very long. Sooner or later the physics of it all simply cannot be denied.

... and this is why fish have been disappearing from the dinner tables of USA. And more and more are dying in huge schools in the Pacific, no matter what the size. Clearly the government is not near as intelligent as the people, to put 2 + 2 together. A good time is NOW to stop eating tuna and pretty much all Pacific fish, and following soon all fish of the worldwide oceans.

Not hard to spot the TEPCO touts and shills here. I wish Mike Adams had written this article, as important as it is, in a less stressful manner, but I also see the need and urgency to get the news out about the physical problems and the corporate shenanigans. I mostly would like to have M$M report on this but as I have said to other websites that I commented in about this double or triple disaster, M$M web sites will not be showing this for a long time and there is probably a hidden law that forbids anyone talking about it in public. Tracking the '300 tons of nuclear waste' should not be a problem IF responsible people do it. All it would take is tracking the ocean currents and the radioactivity should show up enough to give an approximation as to the severity of the situation, which can only be not good at all.

GE might own some of the media companies responsible for reporting on such things. This issue is not getting enough press in the US.

So TEPCO are not to be trusted and your source for this pish is a TEPCO employee? I knew about the leaks, it's not being kept as quiet as you seem to think but I can't believe half the exagerated cod shit you add in for effect. A journalistic peice which has bad grammar or spelling mistakes -let alone one that is hosted on a site called the watchers- is hardly credible lol

I wonder if they scientist and experts are tracking the direction of the radioactive water that is leaving Fukushima reactor. That much radioactive water would seem likely to reach U.S. shores and become a health hazard.

Below is photographic and other evidence that Fukushima was blown up by Zionist "gun-type" nuclear bombs hidden in recently installed security cameras. "Prior to this earthquake, Japan had offered to enrich uranium for Iran. And Israel . . . wasn't too happy about that. So, they immediately set up front companies masquerading as security companies, and one of these security companies got access to Fukushima and basically came in with thousand pound cameras that looked just like gun-type nuclear weapons, convinced the plant operators that they really were security cameras, got them in there, split, planted Stuxnet, and left." - Jim Stone, "Nuclear Sabotage at Fukushima" www.jimstonefreelance.com/nuclear%20sabotage%20at%20fukushima.pdf "Smoking gun proof reactor 4 was in cold shutdown when it "exploded": 1. The jib the service crane hooks up to is attached to the dome. 2. The bolts are removed. This dome is in the service area, as evidenced by the high-resolution photos. This reactor is obviously defueled, as stated by TEPCO." . . . - Jim Stone, "Nuclear Sabotage at Fukushima" http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/unit4dome.jpg "Even at meltdown, a boiling water reactor cannot go critical like a nuke and will not explode; it just melts. The blast at Fukushima #3, which Israeli firm Magna BSP "secured" with one of their cameras, bears a striking similarity to a nuclear weapon test." - Jim Stone, "Nuclear Sabotage at Fukushima" http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/camera.jpg "So, when reviewing the seismic data for that supposed 9.0 . . . I knew there were three small simultaneous inland epicenters. . . . You don't have three epicenters on one quake. That just doesn't happen. And so, I knew right from the beginning that these quakes were artificially created. And I didn't know if Japan was doing nuclear tests and Israel got wind of them and started their operation based upon the timing that their intelligence said they are going to detonate these three nukes and try to hide it as a natural earthquake. I didn't know if Israel had gotten access to lava tubes and tunnels and gotten the nukes underground to set them off. So I wasn't saying anything . . ." - Jim Stone, "Nuclear Sabotage at Fukushima" www.jimstonefreelance.com/nuclear%20sabotage%20at%20fukushima.pdf And I'm sure you have seen Icke's video about this subject (short bit at the end - text excerpt below): "The Rothschild family . . . were the force that led to the introduction of nuclear power. So now we have nuclear power stations all over the world which are *all* potentially catastrophic releases of radiation. And many of them are leaking [now] like a sieve anyway. . . . [The] Fukushima [plant] was blown up by small nuclear weapons, what are called "gun-type" nuclear weapons. . . It's interesting to note that Fukushima had a whole new "security and sensor" system put in . . . These bloody cameras that they put in, in the year before the explosion, they weighed 1,000 pounds! . . . The firm that put them in was an Israeli company . . ." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jyv3UpBiEw&feature=share The part on the Fukushima plant being blown up purposely is near the end of the video (hour 1:15:30)

No comment,just questions. What impact does this have on the US? Is the water already contaminated on our coastlines and if so why haven't we seen or heard of it? Are we not routinely checking water quality or for radiation levels in the fish caught, the lobsters, the crab? In this country we have so many environmental groups that I can't imagine such a cover-up.

This is a terrible thing that has happened to these people and to the world … the evils that man has done to humanity seems to be the very course known that would happen in prophecy … it seems that all God has to do is let evil take care of evil … and I thank God of the CREATOR for that plan of deliverance before the worst come to be .. My dad use to say “give the devil enough rope he will hang his own self” … well it seems the nose have been thrown over the branch and the choking has begun

BTW, Tim Worstall at Forbes has penned this absolutely horrendous and misleading article in which he confuses the radiation from bananas (beta) with the radiation from the nuclear plant (gamma): http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2013/08/10/the-fukushima-radiation-leak-is-equal-to-76-million-bananas/

300 tons is about 61000 gallons or about the size of three small backyard swimming pools. Compared to the Pacific Ocean, this is tantamount to a molecule in in an Olympic swimming pool . Furthermore, the water is not radioactive. It cannot be. There may be particulates in the water which are radioactive. So the question is how much particulate is in the water and what is the amount and half life of the radioactivity in the particulates. None of these questions are raised or answered in the article. Bad reporting.

Dear "Moneyed Interests": the environment is worth more than you are, and more important.

This is a succinct and masterful summary of the situation. As co-author of "Deadly Deceit- Low-level Radiation, High-level Cover-up," and specifically the "In These Times" article "Silent Summer,"I naturally learned the awful truth about the "Petkau Effect," but Fukashima is like a slow-motion nuclear war. The amounts of radiation being released are astronomical compared to any of humanity's previous radiation debacles, and in this case, like Chernobyl, we will see the effects in the birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees, and children, then women, and finally the men. Combined with depleted uranim--and enriched

So potentially the reactor has released over a quarter of a million tons of radioactive water into the Pacific ocean since the accident two and half years ago and we are only being told about it now!The ocean currents will have by now taken that radioactive water around the world, yet have our fishermen been told not to fish or have our food agencies been told to check for radiation levels? Also, what are the chances that this radioactive water can be precipitated into the atmosphere to fall as rain elsewhere? Which is worse, the fact that Tepco have lied continuously or that our governments who have probably been aware since the original accident have kept quiet knowing that their people may soon be dying from cancers related to this poisoning in the oceans. If the plant explodes again, the northern hemisphere could be uninhabitable for a few thousand years, just think, all of North America, Canada, Europe, Russia, China empty of people. It could become a very crowded southern hemisphere? I might be time for a few officials in japan and elsewhere to be tried for crimes against humanity?
