Here’s some recently released-in-part emails that Hillary Clinton received, which warned her about the dangers approaching the US:

As the even more damning documents found in Plume Gate and the NRC FOIA documents (5 Years Later.) show beyond the shadow of a doubt: The pro-nuke Obama administration knew véry well that the Fukushima nuclear disaster was on such a scale that it warranted issuing health warning for much of the US.
Those warnings could have included:
Stay indoors. Wear a mask. Wear a hat. Keep doors and windows closed. Run air purification filters indoors. Cover vegetable gardens / soils used for growing food. Shower immediately after walking outside, especially in case of precipitation. Do not use rainwater for drinking water. And then the specific data of the core of the cloud should have been shared, with advisories for hot spot zones where taking Potassium Iodine (KI, to prevent what will now likely turn into thousands of extra future thyroid cancers) should have been recommended. And so forth.
!-> IN FACT, France, much further downwind and less affected, did issue some such warnings, as I relayed one month after it all began (April 13, 2011), “Above or Below “levels of concern”: USA vs. France”
But what did the US goverment do?
While plume models showed the US getting hit, it wasn’t yet known to most of the public what the corresponding concentrations of various radionuclides were, and if it posed any health risk. That would depend on “the source term”: how much gets released from the accident site.
The US government knew the source term was enormous.
Based on the best data and on-the-ground intel available, they ran dispersion models.
That’s just for 96 hours. Nearly five years later, the releases have yet to come to an end…
And yet, these eloquent well-dressed taxpayer-paid cancer-sowing military-industrial-complex-serving bastards, told everyone that there was “nothing to be concerned about“, which to this day they have continued to repeat. Nuclear-industry frontman & Liar-in-Chief Barrack Obama on March 17, 2011:
“[…] I know that many Americans are also worried about the potential risks to the United States. So I want to be very clear: We do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the United States, whether it’s the West Coast, Hawaii, Alaska, or U.S. territories in the Pacific. Let me repeat that: We do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the West Coast, Hawaii, Alaska, or U.S. territories in the Pacific. That is the judgment of our Nuclear Regulatory Commission and many other experts. […]”
— US President Barack Obama, March 17, 2017
The guy is an unbelievably skilled liar. You can’t tell from just listening to this that at that time he already knew that the situation had deteriorated beyond any nuclear catastrophe ever before. The Plume Gate documents show this beyond the shadow of a doubt.
They told the public explicitly NOT to take KI pills. They conceiled what they knew (Again, see the Plume Gate docs), they even pushed the permitting process to build the first new nuclear power plants in the US in over 30 years, and rather than expand, the EPA actually scaled back the radiation monitoring. While leaking continued, all monitoring returned to a dismal ‘routine levels’ before summer 2011. They even brought an end to monitoring for Tritium in rainwater (in 2012).
Anyhow, the Plume Gate docs are more damning, but these declassified Hillary Clinton emails do illustrate what was known by certain individual political higher-ups. They took the health risk to themselves very seriously, all while they kept the public in the dark about that.

- The detections of Fukushima’s Cobalt-60 could be part of the suppressed evidence.
- While California thyroid cancer rates began to rise pre-Fukushima (suggesting a cover-up of an earlier nuclear accident, possibly in California itself), it is highly likely that Fukushima fallout has begun to compound the already-rising incidence rate.
