[Hat Tip to Zen Gardner @ http://www.zengardner.com/]
!-> An almost 3-hour documentary that recalls the beginning of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, going into various newscasts that cover the whole spectrum of views (from gung ho pro-nuclear to the more sane critical voices), delving into Chernobyl history and all that is known about the long-term effects of nuclear fallout (including segments from Chernobyl Heart), much of which the nuclear interests continue to try to cover up. It includes suggestions for alternatives to shift out of the nuclear revival madness. (Although, on a side note, too much air time was wasted on Mr. Musk of Tesla Motors (I find this documentary better when skipping that segment, from about 1:59:00 to about 2:31:30 (-ish); That “Tesla Motors advertisement segment” (imo) could have been reduced to 5 minutes or better used for giving attention to many other alternative technology initiatives as well). Apart from that, a great compilation of various excellent sources.

Summary: Following the unprecedented triple meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant after Japan’s 3/11 earthquake and tsunami, a myriad of far reaching questions has arisen…
What’s the current state of the Fukushima nuclear reactors? How much radiation have they already released? What type of health impacts can we expect? Is our seafood supply safe? And what about the other 435 nuclear reactors around the world, 104 in the US alone – 22 of them the same exact design as those that exploded and melted down in Fukushima, are they safe? Yet these are not easy questions to get answers to. The mainstream media and the internet are full of conflicting viewpoints & information. For example, UN scientists have already claimed that the health impacts of Fukushima will be negligible and statistically insignificant, which is parroted in CNN’s documentary “Pandora’s Promise”. However independent scientists tell a very different story; they project on the order of a million cancers within the next few decades in Japan alone. So how does such a massive scientific discrepancy occur? Nuclear Exodus explores the ties that inexorably bind the nuclear power industry to the military industrial complex, and how the lust for nuclear weapons causes governments to push nuclear power on their citizens, while covering up the true health effects of radiation exposure. It delves deep into the legacy & lessons of Chernobyl, nuclear waste management, nuclear terrorism, & solar flares which could potentially trigger hundreds of nuclear meltdowns across the world – threatening life on Earth as we know it. But can human civilization truly generate the electricity it needs without nuclear power, especially while reducing our energy dependence on fossil fuels? How far have renewable technologies come in 2014 exactly? And if some cataclysmic disaster did threaten the world, would there be anyway to realistically protect life on Earth? Could Mars actually be a feasible back up planet anytime soon? These questions and more are explored in great depth during Nuclear Exodus: Pandora’s Promise Was A Lie. (This is version 2.2, the most current and up to date version, with some important new facts, plus enhanced audio & visuals!)

For more of my own writings on this topic, see my Nuclear Blog Posts Archive. Be sure to check these two to help see through common nuclear deceptions:
- !–> January 22, 2014. The banana dose nonsense debunked: – Why 150 Bq Cs-137 is health-hazardous, while 150 Bq* K-40 is RECOMMENDED for health
- !–> November 24, 2013 – Be aware of how dose comparisons are used to confuse people: The Dose Deception – Why 0.20 µSv/hr (from fallout) can be far more dangerous than 2.00 µSv/hr (from cosmic rays). The inverse square law for ionizing radiation illustrated.
Since nuclear power interests, opportunistically, are perhaps the biggest pusher of the “CO2 is causing most climate change” scare*, some extra skepticism about “consensus” views in the field of climatology are called for. My own view on Climate Change is that it is mostly natural, driven by sun-earth interactions; See also my Nov. 2011 blog post, “Why I Question the CO2-driven Global Warming “Scientific Consensus”” and the more recent (June 2014), “Global Cooling ahead? (w/ Global Annual Average Temperature Anomalies, Ocean Heat Content mystery, Solar Cycle 24-25, Political Climate,…)” for more.
*An example from Belgium: Electrabel, Belgium’s nuclear power company, was the main promoter of Al Gore’s award-winning ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ (a Catastrophic Man-Made Climate Change alarmist propaganda flick). Electrabel paid to have the movie included in the popular weekly magazine Humo.
