!!!-> For the extremely peculiar radiation data I’m referring to, see this morning’s (May 20, 2017) post: BREAKING: Ruthenium-103, Cobalt-60, Niobium-95 & Cesium-134 Validated Detections in Finland, Cesium-137 Uptick, Artificial BETA upticks in The Netherlands and Italy, as yet another Mystery Radiological Disturbance rolls across Europe… (EURDEP, MAY 2017), of which is a key excerpt:
Did it come Fukushima-Daiichi?
I’m afraid so.
The implication, namely that underground (at-least-for-periods-) sustained fission reactions have not yet ended, is as mind-blowing enormous as that allegation / suspicion has been since it was first suggested in spring 2011.
I have been raising this dire prospect as a distinct possibility since (Aug. 3, 2013) Radioactive Iodine in Seaweed and Sludge, Summer 2013? (Hints of Recent Criticality Events…) + Data suggests radioactive fallout still blowing around the world?, even before I went to Japan later that year. I have made the case for its possibility in a number of posts, including (May 29, 2015) Land of the Sinking Sun… and (Nov. 20, 2015) Debunking the ‘Impossibility’ of Ongoing Criticalities at Fukushima-Daiichi
!!!-> As described in my ground-breaking exposé on Co-60 (Jan. 26, 2016) Any Significance to Cobalt-60 in Fukushima Fallout?, it turned out that one of the kelp seaweeds I had sent to a lab for radioisotope-analysis contained a very significant trace of Cobalt-60, yet no radioCesium… Similar with the air sample from the other day at Kotka, Finland: MORE Co-60 than Cs-134. That’s incredible. Why? In the meltdown accidents of Three Mile Island (TMI) and Chernobyl, Co-60 was in fact quite insignificant compared to radioCesium and various other radioisotopes. This is because it requires an enormous amount of free neutrons to turn that tiny trace (just 0.282% of regular steel) of the iron isotope Fe-58 into Co-60, by double neutron uptake via Co-59. At Fukushima-Daiichi, however, it shows up in strangely extreme quantities, especially in the cooling water of what’s left of Unit #3, the reactor that had been loaded with Belgian MOX fuel (mixed oxides containing a much higher concentration of Plutonium).
I suspect this is the smoking gun and the very reason why Cobalt-60 was omitted from key academic literature, such as “Fukushima’s Forgotten Radionuclides: A Review of the Understudied Radioactive Emissions”, by Georg Steinhauser (Environ. Sci. Technol., 2014, 48 (9), pp 4649–4663 ; DOI: 10.1021/es405654c ; Publication Date (Web): April 9, 2014)”, to begin with. Why were neutron activation products, such as Co-60, Mn-54 and Sb-124, to name a few bubbling out of Fukushima-Daiichi’s Cauldrons of Hell in strangely massive quantities, not included in this list? There significant detections are abundantly clear if you bother to comb through TEPCO data and press releases.
See, the unclear establishment started off by making the public belief (through nuclear insider operations such as Kelp Watch (Dr. Kai Vetter, UC Berkeley / Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, not exactly neutral on nuclear issues, to say the least) and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI, with historic ties to nuclear interests and the defense department), that Cs-134 is the best “key tracer of the Fukushima nuclear disaster”. In addition, by implementing a policy of “don’t test for anything else if no radiocesium is found”, a policy the US EPA also applies for testing (or not) for Strontium-89/90, they reduced the chances of finding such strangely isolated Co60 traces to about zero. Then academics studying fallout aspects of the Fukushima catastrophe, apparently working for the nuclear industry, somehow managed to omit Co-60 from the list (and thus suggested further studies of the dispesion of this radioisotope…) of Fukushima-related radioisotopes… and Voila, as if by magic trick we have ourselves a de-facto fait accompli: When a strange mixture of various man-made radioisotopes, including also indicators of relatively recent fission (Nb-95 and Ru-103 in this case, but in previous periods also including Zr-97, I-131 and Te-132), also contains a bizarre amount of Cobalt-60… academia and the unquestioning mainstream media can keep its head in the sand and pretend they “have no clue” where it came from.
(Well done, nuclear industry, were it not for me drinking about a hundred doses of Ayahuasca in 2013 and following Amazonian visions all the way to the edge of the Fukushima exclusion zone in some crazy-making omen-following destabilizing shamanic attempt to shift the energetic momentum of modernity away from an approaching nuclear war…, a self-inflicted ordeal from which I have yet to fully recover… But that’s another story altogether.)
Was Co-60 omitted from the official academic records (such as Steinhauser’s otherwise excellent work) for the same reason there was an apparent media gag order on Europe’s largest measurement of Telurium-132 since Chernobyl (April 26, 2016 in Northern Germany) Why did that not make that into even one media outlet in Europe? How can you get a spike of Te-132, with a half-life of only 3.2 days by beta decay, of some 10,000% higher than the highest concentration detected in Europe after the Fukushima disaster began in 2011, and it’s not all over the news to figure out where it originated? Is this why every new wave of Iodine-131, such as those detected earlier this year (2017), fails to be traced to a specific origin, too? I can’t claim certainty, but it appears that the truth of Fukushima appears to have been declared off-limits. Do they really think they can just kick this fissioning can into the future until some hoped-for solution is secretly found within their tiny inner circle?
See, my opinion would be more easily dismissed as utterly implausible were it not for the fact that various other independent researchers arrived at similar conclusions by vastly different routes…
- *I* arrived at the likelihood of ‘Fukushima Still Fissioning!‘ by two converging pathways: by tracing fallout patterns observed on radiation monitors in US and Europe with the jet stream to Fukushima, and by investigating the significance of Cobalt-60 as a key tracer of Fukushima fallout. And then, combined with questions that arose from looking into the significance of Thorium-231, I arrived at ‘the implication’ they certainly would want to keep hidden: That part of the Fukushima-Daiichi complex might have served as an advanced research facility, experimenting with unusual fuel geometries for either the purpose of siphoning off fissile material (possibly for a secret nuclear weapons program), or for ‘breeder reactor’ research. Pretty crazy conclusions to feel compelled to arrive at… The logic is the conclusion is that the normal operation of a nuclear power station could not possibly lead to a supercriticaliy and or prolonged-fissioning situation. Thus at least one of these reactors was being operated abnormally. There are only a few reasons to do so…
- Based on piecing together a wide array of news snippets Dr Goodheart of A Green Road Blog interestingly posed a very similar set of possibilities in (March 20, 2013): Fukushima Secret Nuclear Weapons Research Lab, Plutonium Weapons Research – Breeder Reactor? US Illegally Sent Japan Tons Of Weapons Grade Plutonium, Now It Is Demanding That Japan Send It Back
- And to make matters worse, Yoichi Shimatsu, former Editor of The Japan Times Weekly, arrived at this dark ‘nuclear weapons research’ possibility as well, not through studying fallout patterns, nor pondering curious radioisotope-specific data (though he does touch on that too: the ration Cs-137 to Cs-134 appeared abnormal), nor by piecing together various news articles, but by noting strange Japanese behavior, which included observations such as: “[…] suspicious activities also pointed to a high-level cover-up, including systematic undercounts of radiation levels, inexplicable damage to thousands of imported dosimeters, armed anti-terrorism police aboard trains and inside the dead zone, the jamming of international phone calls, homing devices installed in the GPS of rented cars, and warning visits to contacts by government agents discouraging cooperation with independent investigations. These aggressive infringements on civil liberties cannot be shrugged off as an overreaction to a civil disaster but must have been invoked on grounds of national security. […]” on Rense.com in the exclusive (Sept. 8, 2011) Shimatsu – Proof Of Fukushima Weapons Program.
Hence I feel compelled to raise this possibility yet again. My sense is that, if it truly is as serious as it seems (ongoing fissioning China Syndrom), then on a time-scale of multiple decades, certainly affecting future generation, quality of life for complex carbon-based life forms, such as humans, is at stake.
Aside for the culture-change-demanding challenge at hand to shift this discord to harmony, the situation contains the ultimate obstacle: The nuclear industry, including the IAEA and affiliated so-called official watchdogs, has been hijacked by mafia-like powers, with the full backing of all the world’s most powerful militaries, who have no regard for the sanctity of Life.
I don’t know how to respond to this impression.
Praise yourself lucky you don’t live inside my mind…
