Dear all,

Thank you all for visiting, reading and sharing the news with me on the Fukushima Appeal Blog. I’ve kept it running since February 2012. Unfortunately, I will need some break now to attend to some of my health issues.

I would like to thank this blog and its supporters for giving me an opportunity to become a part of the slowly awakening global community during this very important time of global change. I had zero knowledge of nuclear before the Fukushima disaster, and was and still am a just normal citizen. It’s been hard to see Japan becoming a criminal, immoral and authoritarian country since the Fukushima Disaster. So it’s been a huge awakening and healing process to have a platform to speak out instead of feeling powerless, angry and sad about it. With the new secret law that is going to be introduced in Japan soon, Japanese people will need more help than at any other time in its history from foreign bloggers, doctors and scientists. Please remember Fukushima. I hope that the more difficulties we may encounter, the stronger and connected we will become to fight against injustice and be able to act from our heart space. (Mia)

日本の皆さん、がんばってください。 再稼動反対、子供を守れ! 1mSv/yの約束を守れ!

The Nuclear reality: Lives in Limbo After Fukushima (Video) Greenpeace

Blogpost by Rianne Teule - February 19, 2013
As a nuclear campaigner, I have seen the nuclear industry walk away from its mistakes many times, ignoring people’s suffering.
But it is the terrible effect on people of a nuclear disaster such as Fukushima that really brings home the flaws of the nuclear system.
Nearly two years after the disaster, the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Japan are still being disrupted. When the disaster hit, their lives were turned upside down. They were forced from their homes, they lost their jobs, families were split up and communities were abandoned due to the radioactive fallout.
People are not able to get fair compensation. Many are still unable to return home or rebuild their lives elsewhere. Imagine living in limbo like that, stuck between past and future.
How can this be happening?
Blame the unfair system that protects the nuclear industry from paying for its failures. This system is called nuclear liability. It is a joke.
Make the industry pay
A risky industry like the nuclear industry should have to pay for its damages, just the way big oil companies have to pay for spills. But the nuclear industry is protected. Governments did that to help the nuclear industry get started decades ago. They have never fixed the problems this protection created.
Greenpeace examines the flaws of the unfair system in a new report, Fukushima Fallout: Nuclear business makes people pay and suffer.
We commissioned three experts to look at the continued Fukushima suffering in relation to the worldwide system of nuclear conventions that lets the nuclear industry off the hook, while at the same time, forcing the public to pay the vast majority of the costs in the event of a nuclear accident.
When there is a disaster, the system doesn't require a nuclear plant operator to pay more than a tiny fraction of the costs of a disaster. Even in Japan, where nuclear operators were supposed to pay all the costs of a disaster, TEPCO, the operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant, simply does not have enough money to pay more than a fraction.
Flawed design
It gets worse. The system doesn't make the companies that supply material for nuclear plants pay anything at all to help the victims. So the world's big reactor sellers, GE, Hitachi and Toshiba among others, pay nothing if there is a disaster at one of the reactors they sell.
The gap between what the nuclear industry pays and what the public pays is enormous. In most countries with reactors, the damages a nuclear operator might be required to pay range from 350 million euros to 1.5 billion euros. That range is tiny when compared with the costs of a disaster.
For example, the Fukushima disaster could cost up to US$250 billion, according to recent estimates. The cost estimates for the Chernobyl disaster of 1986 range from 55 billion euros to 270 billion euros.
The Japanese government had to nationalise TEPCO because it couldn't pay even the early recovery costs. TEPCO's key reactor suppliers GE, Hitachi, and Toshiba, built the plant's reactors based on a flawed design. But they are protected. No help from them.
This means that Japanese taxpayers will end up paying the bulk of the costs of the disaster.
This isn't a problem that just affects Japan. If there was a nuclear disaster at any one of the world's 436 reactors, the same story would play out. Taxpayers would pay most of the costs.
It is well past time when this flawed system should be fixed. It’s simple: the polluter must pay. The companies that create nuclear risks must be made to pay for their failures, not the people who suffer from them.
That's why Greenpeace International has launched a campaign to change the system. Our Fukushima Fallout report that explains the problem is the start. We need your help.
Sign our petition. Let governments know that the entire nuclear industry must be held accountable for the damage it causes.

Gundersen: Fukushima Plume Went Down on Ground Unlike Chernobyl – Due to ‘building wake effect’ – Radiation exposure going to be higher for people nearby (Video)

Nuclear Expert Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education: One of the things I’ve discovered when I look at the drawings, the accident movies, you see the plume going down on the ground, which didn’t happen at Chernobyl. Chernobyl burned upward […]
At Fukushima the plume goes down, it’s something called ‘Building Wake Effect’. So I think that the exposures in close, in the 20 and 30 and 40 km range are actually going to be higher than we saw at Chernobyl and because of the fact all of the stacks and everything that was designed to get that radioactivity up in the air were destroyed because they had no electricity to run the fans. [...] you’ll have to listen to my speech*.

BBC Programs on Fukushima

There were 2 hour long program over the 2 weeks nearer to March 11 anniversary.  I watched both of them.  They were well documented and featuring how children have been feeling from their point of view which was very touching.  I heard lots of good comments from my friends who watched, especially about the second one with children in Minami Soma-city.  
However I was disappointed with these reasons.  First one was focused on first a few weeks of what happened at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, but I think it gave an impression that it was about the past because it never mentioned whats been happening till now even there has been continuous leaking of the radiation into the air and the sea.  What about reactor 4?  It could potentially bring even more catastrophe than ever.   The greatest tsunami in 1,000 years which was used by BBC2 program was a phrase once used by Tepco, then later it was criticized as a wrong expression in Japan.  I read a report which said the highest wave that hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant was 15m.  In 2008 Tepco submitted their report in which said over 15 m height of wave could hit the plant, but they dismissed their own calculation and did nothing to implement their report.  Tepco shouldnt have really said one in 1000 years and unimaginable, it is more like one in 100 years, and it showed how un-responsible company Tepco is.   I wonder if BBC did their own research for making these programs.  If you look at Japanese history, there was a huge tsunami with highest wave 38.2m hit the east coast of Japan in 1896 which came after magnitude -8.5 earthquake, resulting in 22,000 people dead.
Also I would like to comment on Iodine tablet. Japanese government never instructed citizens in the affected area to take the tablet.  People who took it were Tepco peoples family as they knew the danger, and also citizens in Miharu-machi where they decided to take it voluntarily without waiting for the governments instruction.  So it is doubtful that in the first program one father giving her daughter the iodine tablet.  Even if he did, it doesnt represent at all for most of citizens.  Also there isnt any single case of children who already suffered radiation related symptoms such as nose bleeding, diarrhea 2 months after the explosions.  Children who already have these symptoms are not just worried about their future as it said in BBC program, but worried about whats happening in their body right now as well.  Already three children developed thyroid cancer.  It’s more likely that seven more will develop thyroid cancer, too.
It seems that BBC doesn’t want to broadcast anything that might the citizens to stir up anti-nuclear movement.  When there were so many demonstrations going on towards and around March 11 this year, I heard nothing about them in the main stream media.  

Fukushima: BBC Debunked


Obama said that everything is okay - but that has not been not proven to be true.

(1m-) We know that damage to the Fukushima Diichi nuclear plant causes substantial risk to people live nearby. With careful scientific guidance US warned American Citizens to evacuate out of 80miles radius of the crippled plant……..

(2m30s) We do not expect harmful levels of radiation to reach the United States whether it's west coast or Hawaii or Alaska or US territories in the Pacific.  That is the judgment of the nuclear regulatory commission and many other experts.  Furthermore public health experts do not recommend people in the US take precautionary measures beyond staying informed…….. 

Radiation Leak in America…

Some figures for milk contamination found on this blog

In the US, physician Janette Sherman MD and epidemiologist Joseph Mangano published an essay shedding light on a 35 per cent spike in infant mortality in northwest cities that occurred after the Fukushima meltdown, and may well be the result of fallout from the stricken nuclear plant.
The eight cities included in the report are San Jose, Berkeley, San Francisco, Sacramento, Santa Cruz, Portland, Seattle, and Boise, and the time frame of the report included the ten weeks immediately following the disaster.

The US soldiers who were in the Operation Tomodachi soon after the disaster must have been exposed to high dose of ionizing radiation during the operation and have been suffering various illnesses.  They should be well looked after.
USA Department of Defense recently published a report which says that they recognizes the long term health effects of ionizing radiation. 
Over 150 U.S. service members say Fukushima radiation has triggered medical issues — Now Defense Department abandons medical registry, leaving them on own
