This is Part 2 of a two-part article on the aftermath of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster which continues to pollute the Earth with highly toxic radiation.
On March 11, 2011, an enormously powerful undersea 9.0 magnitude megathrust earthquake off the northeastern coastline of Japan triggered a devastating tsunami which flooded and shut down the cooling systems at the Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Fukushima, owned and operated by TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company).
As this writer covered before for The Daily Conspiracy, “we’re all Fukushima’d” and can expect increasing measurable levels of life-threatening Cesium in the Pacific Ocean between the Japan Islands and the west coast of North America as it translates into mass sea creature deformities, diseases, and die-offs – all symptoms of radiation poisoning.
Remarkably, no negative health and environmental effects have been attributed to the toxic radiation leaking into the Pacific Ocean since March 11, 2011. Official reports from Japan and the United States claim. All is Well. And hey, let’s hold an Olympic Game in Tokyo next year – y’ all come!
As mentioned at the end of Part 1 of this two-part article, a March 2019 report in Global Research stated that the Fukushima nuclear power plant breaches constitute “an ongoing global radiological catastrophe” hidden by “a huge coverup.”
This is no lunatic-fringe conspiracy theory. Dr. Helen Caldicott, author, physician and one of the world’s leading anti-nuclear campaigners, served as president of the U.S.-based Nuclear Policy Research Institute, later called Beyond Nuclear, since its founding in 2001.
This expert on the harmful effects of nuclear radiation was skeptical of ongoing assurances from the Japanese government that All is Well for the upcoming 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Dr. Caldicott said the official narrative has been engineered to cover up the truth about a cancer hospital in Fukushima that has been treating people in the wake of the nuclear leak:
“The Japanese government has told doctors that they are not to talk to their patients about radiation and illnesses derived thereof, and in fact, if the doctors do do that, they might lose their funding from the government.”
Dr. Caldicott cited air-borne emissions and over a million gallons of stored water from the tainted power plant as especially dangerous and unresolved problems post-2011:
“They will never be able to stop the water coming down from the mountains. And so, the truth be known, it’s an ongoing global radiological catastrophe which no one really is addressing in full.”
Furthermore, the Japanese medical community is focused exclusively on thyroid disorders resulting from exposure to radiation in the Japanese population. “They’re not looking for leukemia,” said Dr. Caldicott.
Why haven’t we heard any warnings from the World Health Organization (WHO) about known medical risks associated with Fukushima radioactive spillage?
On May 28, 1959, the WHO’s assembly voted into force an agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which, in essence, granted :” the IAEA an effective veto on any actions by the WHO that relate in any way to nuclear power – and so prevent the WHO from playing its proper role in investigating and warning of the dangers of nuclear radiation on human health.”
So much for medical objectivity and ethical behavior. The health advice given by Dr. Caldicott?
“Do not eat any Japanese food because you don’t know where it’s sourced. Do not eat fish from Japan, miso, rice, you name it. Do not eat Japanese food. Period. Fish caught off the west coast of Canada and America? Well, they’re not testing the fish so I don’t know what you’d do.”
That’s right. The U.S. government and health organizations aren’t testing fish caught along the West Coast for higher levels of toxic radiation – despite “28 Signs That the West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried with Nuclear Radiation from Fukushima.”
Polar bears, seals, and walruses along the Alaska coastline are losing fur and have open sores; sea lions are dying in epidemic proportions along the California coastline; sockeye salmon populations in Pacific coastal Canada and Alaska are at all-time lows; “something” is making fish bleed from their gills, bellies, and eyeballs all along Canada’s western shoreline – these are just the first four of the 28 signs that All is Not Well post-Fukushima in Canada and the United States.
Radiation pollution and poisoning that resulted from the massive breaches reported by TEPCO after the March 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami are one of the biggest international news stories before us today.
Yet, Americans hear next to nothing about this impending disaster. Instead, the few reports available are uttering dismissive of any problem – past, present or future.
A year ago, in March 2018, Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, said that the “U.S. and Canadian coastal waters in the Pacific are contaminated, analyses show, but radiation levels are still well below federal standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA].”
How reassuring: the scandal-ridden EPA whose administrator, Scott Pruitt resigned in July 2018 over charges of numerous ethical violations, has joined the Japanese government’s official chant that All is Well in the world.
