Never in all of history has a world event with such reaching consequences to human life as those represented by the meltdown of the reactors at Fukushima been so thoroughly and absolutely covered up. By now the effects of the radioactive pollution from the plant have encompassed our planet and, as higher radiation levels for the aquatic life in the Pacific Ocean are scantly reported, life, or more probably death goes on as if nothing of any real consequence has actually occurred.
After the meltdown of a single reactor in Chernobyl in 1986, there seemed to be a constant vigil to track the spread of the radiation and the consequences to human life in the Soviet Union and around the world. But back then, the coverage served a political purpose. We weren’t to look at the failure of Chernobyl as a consequence of the bad decision in building these death plants, but rather the inferior system of government in the Soviet Union that allowed the failure to occur.
In the instance of Fukushima, this was the last thing we wanted because Japan had been Americanized and the technology and the use thereof, including safety measures, were written by the United States. That and the fact that Japan’s liability to those affected by that government’s negligence would have had to be recognized.
I saw a headline come across the television screen this week that said, “Japanese officials now believe some radiated water from the Fukushima reactors may have leaked into the Pacific Ocean.” What? Could it be that at this point in time our memories are supposed to have been erased by our exposure to the radiation? Is this an attempt to rewrite recent history?
Not only was it previously reported that radiated water from the plant was leaking into the ocean, but those of us who were watching the events unfold know that radiated water from the reactors was pumped into a tanker ship, taken offshore, and deliberately dumped into the Pacific Ocean. Not only were those reactors leaking then, they are in fact leaking now, as nothing has been done to stop the hemorrhaging.
The Japanese government and TEPCO are guilty of crimes against humanity, as their neglect is compounded through their continued neglect and complete disregard, not only for human life, but for all life upon this planet.
After Fukushima, the spotlight was put on failing plants across the United States that are leaking radiation into our environment every day. But as the danger to multi-billion dollar, US taxpayer subsidized, contracts began to enter into the equation, payoffs and coercion quickly brought the enlightenment to a dead halt.
There have been a couple of mentions of the leaking nuclear waste storage facility in Hanford, Washington, but the criminals running these operations seem now to be completely immune, not only from investigation and prosecution, but even criticism. Look at the big picture. If the international DISASTER at Fukushima, which is still poisoning this planet, can be completely overlooked, what consequence is a few leaking barrels in Washington State?
This is the equivalent of standing on train tracks with a locomotive bearing down on you and making no effort to move out of the way because somehow the completely ridiculous notion that a train will not kill you if you stand in its way has been put forth, and in some unimaginable way, accepted.
Just for the record, radiation is not good for us and will indeed kill us.
There needs to be disclosure as to the extent of the contamination from Fukushima, past, present, and future, and someone needs to be made to take responsibility for the greed motivated negligence that led to the catastrophe. Or maybe the banksters are at the root of all this, in which case, the new US doctrine comes into play, which dictates that there are those among the criminal elite too powerfully corrupt to be reproached.
