For the past few weeks, word of the extent of the Fukushima disaster is spreading like the radiation slick moving across the Pacific Ocean thanks to social media and a lot of newly concerned citizens.

Independent researchers who have been trying to warn people for over a year are finally being heard. Much of that can be attributed to citizen journalists, who have realized mainstream media dropped the ball on this a long time ago.

To understand the dynamics of information and how it has been controlled, you would have to look at companies like General Electric and Westinghouse, who not only build nuclear reactors, but own major news outlets and, of course, are buddy-buddy with the Obama Administration.

Or, I can just tell you about it, since I have spent countless hours researching these connections and interviewing people about it. More on that at a later date. It deserves a nice big page in itself, with room for lots of details.

Not only do we have citizen journalists and the alternative media on top of this, but citizen scientists as well.

Have you met your new Fukushima expert, who just might live right next door? These are people who have taught themselves everything they possibly could about nuclear physics, radiation, Geiger counters, atomic power, nuclear plants, the effects of radiation on health, and radiation mitigation.

These citizen scientists have studied bombs, fallout, and weather and wind patterns. They have been monitoring radiation levels across the country, with their own equipment they purchased out of pocket and learned how to use.

They have read anything and everything they can get their hands on. They know the difference between alpha, beta, and gamma radiation, and how to avoid it.

They know that besides cancer, radiation can do all kinds of things to you, like severely compromise your immune system, intelligence, and thyroid, or make you aggressive, confused, and fatigued.

You might bruise or bleed in weird places and feel sick more than usual. They have learned all this out of their own instincts of survival.

Sometimes they even go 2 days without sleep, when bad stuff is happening, just to make sure they are keeping on top of the issues as much as possible.

It’s amazing what you can do in a short period of time when your life depends on it. And the more that they learn, the greater their sense of urgency has become in bringing this info to the masses.

And what conclusion have these citizen journalists and citizen scientists reached throughout 14 months of study?

They have come to the inevitable conclusion that all of our lives changed on March 11, 2011, when Fukushima went out of control.

The glaring problem is that we that we weren’t told about what actually happened.

Take, for instance, the fact that there were 3 meltdowns almost right away, and that the radioactive isotopes that blew all over Japan, Hawaii, Alaska, Canada and North America came in extraordinarily high quantities.

Or how various agencies that taxpayers have funded, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), did not do their job which is to protect the environment, and us.

In fact the EPA turned off their monitors for about a month, for the first time in their history. These are expensive and delicate pieces of equipment the taxpayers had already bought and paid for, for just such an emergency.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) knew, but they hid the information. The Obama Administration knew, but sent Hillary Clinton over to Japan to shake hands with the Prime Minister and show support.

Obama came out with a statement to the American people, saying, “We do not believe harmful levels of radiation will reach our shores,” which we now know was a lie.

We had to figure all this out for ourselves, which was difficult because the information was purposely withheld from us.

Despite their best efforts, they can’t stop the truth from leaking out of Fukushima. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests have now proven this beyond a doubt.

Conspiracy theory is becoming conspiracy fact. And now we are going public with this information, and in a very big way.

It has been around 3 weeks since I wrote my first article for End the Lie, and still no real progress to report at the plant itself.

Tons of water continues to get poured into the reactors and flow subsequently into the Pacific Ocean, every second of every day.

Radiation continues to steam itself out of the ground, and thus up into the air, which then blows over us (i.e. resident of the northern hemisphere).

Earthquakes still happen daily around Japan. In fact there were 7 or 8 of them just in the past few days near Fukushima.

The spent fuel still sits in its shaky nest at the top of reactor number 4. Nothing has been done to further reinforce the structure.

The good news (if you can really call it that) is that it hasn’t fallen yet. The United Nations and the United States are now in their most preliminary stages of addressing the complexity of problems there, in an attempt to see if they can help out.

But as you know, the wheels of bureaucracy turn very slowly. It took almost 14 months for them to start turning at all.

Besides the ongoing releases into the ocean and air and the precariousness of the pool, we have a debris field the size of Texas starting to hit the west coast and Alaska, which may or may not be radioactive.

Japan has been burning radioactive trash, and will continue to do so until at least 2014, and that blows over us as well.

We have a radioactive slick moving across the ocean, which by all estimates should have sunk to the bottom, but hasn’t. And we have sick and dying mammals, fish, and birds all over the world, which may or may not be related, but should still be an enormous concern, since many of them are being found in the Pacific.

That is part of the problem when you are faced with the world’s largest disaster. All of the models for how to deal with it can be thrown out the window.

All the assumptions about fallout and it working itself into the food chain have been wrong. It was much worse, and has happened much faster, than anyone expected, even for concerned citizens and independent researchers following this closely.

The government knew this would be the case from the early SPEEDI numbers, which were hand translated and delivered to the US government as they happened. But for the most part, Fukushima has exceeded everyone’s expectations.

New ideas, new techniques, and new engineering has to be invented and implemented. New observations have to be made, and they are, as can be seen by searching “mutations” on YouTube and watching some videos.

We have citizen journalists and citizen scientists who are desperately trying to come up with solutions, and are doing it for free, while our government and agencies created to “protect us” continue to collect their paycheck, roll their eyes, shove their hands in their pockets and hum a tune like they’re waiting for a taxi.

But out of crisis, comes opportunity. I’ll use 9/11 again as an example.

Why do people get a warm fuzzy feeling when we see people rushing to aid those in the midst of disaster? Because we humans are hard-wired to care for others, and long to be part of a community.

Out of disaster, there is camaraderie, sympathy, and empathy. There are important lessons to be learned.

There are whole new industries that could be created out of this crisis, putting people to work. Aquaponics. Decontamination. Mitigation. Food testing.

And since we didn’t seem to learn these lessons with Chernobyl, we need to learn them right now.

All nuclear power does is boil water and create steam, which turbines turn into electricity. But when something goes wrong, it has the ability to kill everything on the planet. That is where we are at now.

We need to adapt if we are to survive. And part of that adaptation means we need to eliminate the possibility of this ever happening again, starting with the 23 reactors the same style as Fukushima, in the United States, which is the Mark 1 Boiling Water Reactor, or BWR.

People in the industry jokingly refer to these as “double-decker beach-bombs,” for the reason that the spent fuel is located in pools at the top of the reactor buildings, and they are usually located at a water source for emergency cooling purposes for when the fecal matter hits the fan at one of these plants.

In fact, several nuclear engineers who designed these reactors quit in protest before they went into production. They realized they had made a mistake. They realized this design would be extremely dangerous. GE went ahead and built them anyway.

When is the world going to realize the mistake of embracing nuclear energy as a power source, in spite of its danger?

And how long do we continue to ignore the brilliant scientists that warned about this, like Oppenheimer and Einstein? Or is it already too late?

There are no energy problems, in comparison. If you want to cut down on your electricity usage, turn off your TV.

We have natural gas deposits that could power everything we need. We have the power of the sun, water, wind and earth in the form of geothermal energy.

Nuclear power is a sham, just like the oil industry, and we have been duped into believing we need it to survive.

It generates billions and billions of dollars for these corporations. GE (who has the most ironic motto, “We Bring Good Things to Life”) made 14 billion dollars last year, and paid no taxes.

In addition to producing electricity, nuclear reactors also generate 500 pounds of plutonium a year per reactor, as a byproduct of the fission process.

What happens to all that highly toxic plutonium? The government gets to collect this material to make bombs, so we can go utterly decimate other countries, now known as “spreading democracy” and poison their populations for future generations.

Let’s not forget depleted uranium, or DU, which is now used in many military applications with horrific results.

Check out videos of children in Fallujah for some recent examples of this.

This is the one big secret that the nuke industry and our government will do anything to protect: besides being a billion dollar industry, nuke plants are basically bomb-making factories right under our noses.

Drawing attention to Fukushima would have drawn attention to this function of nuclear facilities.

An added side effect is that they also make people sick and help boost the health care industry, which in some states is now the number one private sector employer.

The plutonium and fission byproducts these plants produce help support our government’s number-one priority: the almighty military-industrial complex.

And it’s all in the name of money, power, and control. Energy companies hire top level advertisers and public relations people to promote and manipulate public opinion. Even during the Superbowl, ads were run showing how steam from nuclear power runs the turbines that make beer.

They want you to believe that we are dependent on this source of energy for our quality of life. The truth of the matter, on the other hand, is that nuclear power has ruined our lives.

Ask anyone who used to live in the ever-expanding evacuation zone in Japan, which may soon include the 35 million people in Tokyo.

Ask anyone who lives near a nuke plant and has a child with autism, gastroenteritis, or cancer. Just take a look at the statistics of cancer in the general population since we started embracing this technology.

The truth is: we have been nuked and are still getting nuked, every day, in a very big way.

I used to be a huge supporter of nuclear power, but 14 months of intensive study has changed my opinion significantly.

In addition to my studies, I have been influenced by some major health issues I developed after being outside the first 3 weeks after the reactors exploded. During that time I had a metallic-taste in my mouth, which I found out later was from tasting fission products. More on that later as well.

Nuclear cheerleaders like to complicate things in an attempt to make radiation something much harder to understand. That way it turns people off from the subject and they won’t pay attention as much.

The truth is, you don’t need to be a physicist, a scientist, or an expert in this field. You don’t need to know the differences between decay rates and half-lives, or cesium and strontium.

You only need to understand one thing: All radiation is bad, and all of it will make you sick, no matter how much Ann Coulter claims that the Japanese should be thankful for Fukushima.

The more you are exposed to it, the sicker you will be. The more places you can cut down on your exposure, the better off your health will be.

Radiation is cumulative. It builds up in the body. It destroys cells. It causes mutations in cell growth which can thus create cancer or other illnesses.

There is plenty of this radiation leaking out of Fukushima for over a year now, blowing around in our air, building up in our soil, and contaminating our water supply.

What’s worse, we have 104 of these plants in the United States, with special emphasis on the 23 previously mentioned, where this exact scenario is waiting to happen.

GE's Immelt and Obama

Radioactive steam comes out of these plants all the time, since as part of their normal operations. They vent to the atmosphere to keep things cool. Do some research into “rainshadow” in autism and brain cancer in children, and look where the numbers are the highest: around nuclear plants.

We can’t afford to wait or delay. If you aren’t already mitigating, you need to start now. You need to treat your health, and the health of your family, like you all have cancer already. That might sound like fear mongering to some, but this is one case where “better safe than sorry” truly applies.

This process involves eating healthy whole foods, filtering water, avoiding precipitation, taking supplements, and getting lots of sleep.

Stop eating fast food, and eat lower on the food chain, where bio-accumulation is less. Stop eating seafood, unless you know it is safe.

Include your children in these changes, because we will be dealing with this problem for at least the rest of our lives, and so will they.

We have to change our perspective. Quality of life becomes a much more important issue when your life expectancy has been shortened.

We have Fukushima to thank for this, and the nuclear industry, of course. As well as the various other individuals or agencies that tried to keep this information from us.

And then of course we have spent fuel pool doom lurking in the shadows. And for some unknown reason, Tepco seems to think their most immediate concern is building a huge underground wall, to contain something going on under the plant, the extent of which hasn’t yet been shared with us.

So what do they know that we don’t? Why is there a sense of urgency to contain something underground, when the spent fuel pool #4 is supposedly the weakest link in the Fukushima chain?

Where is all this technology we have to look for gas and oil, like ground-penetrating radar, optical coherence tomography, or even HAARP, to see what’s going on under the plants? What else is being hidden from us?

Instead of calling it game over, let’s play a new game called “No More Fukushimas.”

Let’s figure out ways to clean up this mess and not make more of them in the future. We can leave this for our children to deal with, that is if they are still here.

Or it is up to you, it is up to me, it is up to all of us to fix this situation, right now, as best as we possibly can.

Take care of your family first, have a plan for the worst-case scenario, then do what you can to help others.

Our lives all changed over a year ago, only you weren’t told about it. As bad as things are, there is a huge opportunity here for something wonderful to come out of this mess. A cleaner, brighter, healthier future for our children and generations to come. A future, period.

As a close associate of Obama once said, “Never let a crisis go to waste”. This might be the last crisis that we ever see, if we don’t so something about it.

    After reading your massively-naive posting, I’m convinced of two things. First, Fukushima is not, never has been, nor never will be a potential source of human extinction. Get yourself objectively informed, and stop focussing only on the work of the street corner prophets of nuclear doom. Open your mind to the evidence alternative to their’s. Your article is a prime example of the terrible effects of the Hiroshima Syndrome and its communicable nature through the spread of biased blogging. Second, learn the reality of the most natural and ubiquitous phenomena in the universe; radiation. You have clearly succombed to severe radiophobia. The only way to reverse its mind-numbing effects is to learn about the reality of radiation and find out the truth.

    • Richard May 13, 2012 at 9:03 PM

      Wow Leslie Corrice, you really are a brain dead nuclear fool aren’t you.

      Anyone who condones creating toxic waste for future generations to deal with is morally vacant.

      Anyway you look at it, it cannot be justified. Only a selfish, indulgent fool would think otherwise.

      I’m looking for a better word, for now, I call it Futurecide.

      Anyone linked to the nuke industry in guilty of the highest, most sinister crime ever in humanity, futurecide. and parallel to that is Ecocide.

      Nukers – wake up, or leave … your choice, but the uranium mining and the nuke plants will be stopped, now!

    • Richard May 13, 2012 at 9:10 PM

      You lying disinformation agent. There were no blogs at the time of hiroshima you friggin idiot.

      Why, if radiation is so harmless, do we go to such lengths to contain it. Let’s just leave it out and about and exposed to everyone and everything if it’s so friggin harmless.

      You people, you’re seriously brain dead! And you’re going to kill the rest of us. Clear off and die you nukers.

    • Anonymous May 13, 2012 at 10:18 PM

      so how much does being a disinformation agent pay these days? I need some cash, where can I sign up to be a shill like you??

    • bl8ant May 14, 2012 at 11:27 PM

      wow….the trolls are out in force…sorry Leslie you are an idiot. sickening that you can suspect to be taken seriously at all.

    • Leslie Corrice May 17, 2012 at 4:30 AM

      Just for the record…I make no money for what I am doing. I see my calling as a public service. I am trying to right the wrongs of 1945 and fulfill Einstein’s dream. He said that introducing the world to his idea with weapons would create confusion between reactors and bombs (power plant reactors have nothing to do with weapons…period…never did) and confuse the world about the differences between fallout and radiation itself. He was right. What he didn’t anticipate was the creation of the no-safe-level-of-radiation myth. I’ve dedicated the rest of my life to putting Einstein’s fears to rest and cleansing his legacy.

      Am I offended by all the immature name-calling? No. It’s anticipated. It’s the natural result of mortal fear of radiation (radiophobia) and mortal fear of nuclear energy (the Hiroshima Syndrome), combined with anti-nuclear brainwashing. A college professor once told us that when people get frustrated and can’t face the facts, they reduce themselves to playground behavior and name-calling.

  2. J.Lee May 12, 2012 at 9:46 AM

    THANK YOU! for confirming, validating and supporting my own personal research which led me the EXACT same conclusions as you have in this wonderful article.
    I was a Wall ST. analyst for 22 yrs. and quit to move up to a farm in N. CAlifornina because I saw the writing on the Wall :), that the greedy would destroy all life for then next quarters profit never to bother to care or think that they eventually would be effected.
    This mental delusion continues to this day only ‘more efficiently’.
    We are ALL in big, big trouble and the complacency of the masses in this, the Age of the Really Stupid, means we must speak up, speak out and wake up the sleeping for we are the change.

  3. ClearSprings May 12, 2012 at 11:03 AM

    The author hit the nail directly on the head with this article.

    Nuclear-pushers must lack a sense of humanity because there are so many documentaries, books, and studies showing the horrible effects that nuclear radiation has had on mankind…

    And yet the nuclear shills dismiss every study; every book; every documentary that proves nuclear radiation is dangerous, and the shills attack anyone who tells the truth.

    There’s something missing or “mechanical” in the type of person who could not be affected by a photo of a Chernobyl child with horrible birth defects, or the sight of a young Fukushima child being wanded for radiation exposure.

    Putting science or money above your fellow man is inhumane.

    I am very glad Christina, a bright and informed individual, joined the Fukushima Truth crowd. Your work has made a huge difference in getting legitimate and accurate information out to the public. As Senate, Congress, Obama “get” that we have a ton of evidence on this critical event, and as people around the world continue to test and make public their geiger and lab results, and EPA publishes more radiation readings – there will be no choice but to accept that Fukushima is the biggest FUBAR humanity will hopefully ever know… saddest thing is that babies, mothers, and our future is already impacted heavily by ongoing fallout of radiation materials, which include some of the deadliest elements known to mankind because of weapons grade materials inside the plants. Thanks a lot TEPCO, USA, NRC, IAEA, NSC. You’ve done a huge disservice to humanity and all living creatures.

    If you want to REALLY understand what happened, read http://www.shoah.org.uk/2012/05/11/why-the-media-is-silent-about-fukushima/ and http://jinnwe.com/quest.php?id=419.

    Congratulations to ALL the people (nuclear experts and lay persons alike) who have contributed what probably amounts to thousands of volunteer hours to finding and sharing TRUTH about this catastrophe.

    Don’t eat that seafood and geiger all your foods! And, if you still don’t believe us – find out the truth from FOIA documents http://enformable.com/ and discover what your government doesn’t tell you at

    Sad that you are calling people that know the truth naive, when you are the one that is ignorant. It is not the radioactivity that is the most dangerous, although that is why we need our atmosphere, but that is another subject.

    Be careful when you call someone biased. It usually means that you are the one that is biased.

    The most dangerous radioactive isotopes are Cesium-137, Iodine-131, Strontium-90, and Caesium-137. Caesium-137 is a radioactive salt, and it is water soluble.

    Educate yourself before you try to condemn people and spread your disinformation.

    I agree — including the “don’t worry” post, i.e., I have already caught the CHEM TRAIL Disease, and gotten rid of it. I reflected on the core elements, purchased some herbs and minerals and zeolites and pleanty “C”, and blended several appropriate homeopathic formulas and WHACKED the BEAST from Evergreen Airlines, the CIA company with the USAF contract to HOLOCAUST the public. Mind over matter and prayer and affirmations are essential. But in the end, the officials we pay to protect us, shot us dead in slow motion. NUCLEAR ANYTHING is EVIL. Period.
    To RAPE an atom to boil water to watch TV so your children suffer stupidity as normal — seems to be a short-sighted species. I ain’t coming back here ever again. CHERNOBYL is said to have slain 1,000,000. Each was a real loss. Yet the atomic trash covered Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France and so on — so as a percentage of total affected, the number is small. Second, cancer is ALSO associated with FEAR and unfinished emotional inner wound, PLUS low oxygen. HENCE, drop fear, and increase oxygen. We say here, and laugh: “OK, so we will glow in the dark — but don’t eat cheese.” Cheers.

    Mankind has survived on Earth through his ability to think. Fear stops people thinking. I am an emeritus academic at Oxford with children and grandchildren. I have never had any connection to the industry, defence, utilities etc. I dislike being frightened and have spent my career studying the world and the physics of how it works. I have to say that you are making a big mistake. Nobody died (or will die) from radiation at Fukushima. However many have died from the effects of fear of radiation. Please read this
    {link=http://www.radiationandreason.com/download/ipjnrr,Public Trust in Nuclear Energy}
    or my book “Radiation and Reason, the Impact of Science on a Culture of Fear”, see website or Amazon. Then think why you believe what you do. Please for your children and mine. Complete diistrust is no way to live.

      Typical nuke gang propaganda. We know the truth and there’s a bunch of us on Fukushima Patrol. We have experts, data, and hard science on our side. You want us to trust the industry that has a history of lying? Ha! Be careful choosing what words you spew, those above are as dangerous as the weapons grade materials dousing earth right now.

    First they denied that chem-trails exist
    and now they say it does to control global warming.

    First stage of dis-info is to DENY.

    When people/the educated masses kept hammering them, they then were force to show documents!

    Which does prove aerosol spraying aka chem-trailing does exist.

    So they held a scientific conference in San Diego to explain to the scientific community that it was being sprayed to halt the effects of “global warming” and that nano-aluminum metals were being spread in our atmosphere to block out some radiation.

    LOL bullshit

    2nd step of dis-info is to ADMIT but then MISINFORM and MISLEAD the REAL MOTIVES

    “Nuclear power is a sham, just like the oil industry, and we have been duped into believing we need it to survive.”

    Awright missy! Start with yourself. Stop using anything and everything made of or related to oil and nuclear power. I.e.: no cars, no clothes, no food (except what you manage to produce in your own garden with your own two hands), no phones, no internet, no medicine, no guns, and basically NOTHING that even remotely represents human civilization as we know it. But hey, as I said, start with yourself and your family and your friends. Good luck to you – watch out for the bears. :-)

    Unfortunately our nations haven’t invested enough in alternative energy and so we can’t produce enough power for our populace. So nuclear is what we have to do to satisfy our needs.

    Switching off TVs and lights is not enough, as Leslie mentioned.

    Also, look towards France. France have embraced nuclear, and their latest nuclear plants leave very little nuclear waste as it is reused.

    I would also recommend not building on a fault line.

    something like 90,000 US Navy personnel have crewed sub and giant nuclear powered carriers since 1950.

    Not one single illness, injury or fatality from radiation. The Navy follows up on personnel years after service to look for health problems and has found nothing.

    At the start of the fabulously successful nuclear US Navy, Admiral heard the ill informed protestors and said, “Bunk! full speed ahead.”

    The rest is history.
