And Other Nuclear Disasters; Minimize, Deny, Obfuscate, Lie, Deceive, Mislead, Misinform, Attack Truth Tellers, Conceal
90+ Methods And Lies Nuclear Industry Uses To Cover Up The Fukushima, Other Nuclear Disasters; Minimize, Deny, Obfuscate, Lie, Deceive, Mislead, Misinform, Attack Truth Tellers, Conceal
The lies never stop. The same lies are used around every nuclear accident, spill or incident. It’s AMAZING how much coverup and lying there is going on around nuclear radiation, nuclear accidents, spills and disasters. The deeper you go into this, the more you will find. Most people never bother, and they believe what is told to them on the mass media news, or by the pro nuclear industry promoters and cheerleaders.
A reasonable person would listen to both sides of the story and then make up their mind, wouldn’t you agree? So this article is the ‘other’ side of the story, because the mass media most often only presents the pro nuclear industry side. Good journalism is all about providing BOTH SIDES and then allowing the public to make up their minds. One sided journalism is called propaganda or ‘programming’ if one is polite about it.
Listen, watch, read and then make up your mind about who is telling the truth, and who has a some very good reasons for deceiving people. Can you say profits?
Most nuclear reactor melt downs have been completely hidden and denied in order to protect the money pit that nuclear has become, with hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars involved.
The following article was translated from French to English and is presented due to the excellence of the material. It details the 29 methods used to cover up and lie about the Fukushima mega nuclear disaster.
29 METHODS USED TO COVER UP AND LIE ABOUT FUKUSHIMA MEGA NUCLEAR DISASTER
Clear Fukushima “The facts presented below are real. The tricks and lies outlined below serve to cover up the impact of shocking information about the nuclear industry, to the point that people can ‘forget’ that the largest-scale nuclear disaster that has ever occurred on Earth, began in 3/11 in Fukushima. The Fukushima mega nuclear disaster has not stopped yet, but it is being hidden completely, in open sight.
At least some of the tricks used to hide data, minimize the radiation hazards and to avoid acknowledging responsibility are outlined below. These same tricks and lies will obviously be recycled and be reused again and again for the next mega nuclear disaster that is sure to come soon, according to statistical laws, at one of the other 440 reactors that are spread all around the planet. So let’s explore the many tricks and lies that the nuclear industry has been and is still using at Fukushima…
1) Erase Or Withhold Data
In Japan, the contamination data obtained via Speedi between March 11 and March 15 were erased “accidentally.” Speedi system was supposed to alert the public quickly if radioactive pollution. It was not used because the data were estimated “surreal”.
“I have not slept for more than a week, and I do not remember almost anything,” said Haruki Madarame, director of NISA (Japanese nuclear safety agency). When you are the director of nuclear safety, there is no need to talk or disclose anything, just have amnesia.
– “The explanation of the accident at Fukushima Daiichi” (IRSN) does not explain the explosion of Unit 3. However, this film is supposed to detail the course of the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.
And of course, if an explosion which was inadvertently released has a weird look, such as a black plume or it is too powerful, especially focus on this and explain it away as just another hydrogen explosion. It is not necessary to say anything more, because people do not know anything about nuclear explosion, so they won’t know the difference anyway.
6) To deny an explosion if it is not visible
Tepco has changed its position on the existence of an explosion in reactor 2 and concluded, 7 months after the fact, that an explosion did not happen. It is better to deny what is not seen. 3 explosions instead of 4 is always better.
7) Perform magic tricks to demonstrate the safety of radioactivity
For example, drink a glass of ‘cleaned’ basement water in public. This was supposed to be the water for cooling a nuclear reactor, and Yasuhiro Sonoda, parliamentary secretary, drank this Fukushima water to demonstrate it’s ‘safety’.
A map of contamination in Japan was broadcast, then it was quickly changed. Do not unnecessarily frighten people. Do not support the idea that the radioactive pollution could fall hundreds of miles of the plant. (Prime Minister Abe made a statement that said all radiation stops inside of the harbor at Fukushima and never gets beyond the border, in order to get approval for the Olypics to come to Tokyo.)
Talk only about iodine and cesium, especially do not talk about or look for traces of plutonium, americium, strontium, etc. because they have too long a radioactive half life. And if by chance we find plutonium, especially talk about how that is not hazardous to health and that it comes from atmospheric testing back in the 1960’s. But in general, you should avoid research around plutonium, and eliminates the reports of find any of these more dangerous radioactive man made elements, in order to not worry people.
If we have to talk about plutonium, then do not hesitate to lie on TV, you can say anything that works well and reassures people: “If you compare the toxicity, plutonium, when ingested, is not very different from that of the salt. “(Tadashi Narabayashi)
Since radioactivity is invisible and odorless, not everyone sees that fire!
Another trick is to move the probes. In Japan, they were ski between 20 and 80 m above ground and therefore the measurements were lower. Whether this leads Japanese children to be exposed to 20 mSv / year – as the limit of workers in a nuclear power plant in France – it does not show. If they fall ill in the future, no one can prove the origin of diseases.
This technique is a new experience in Japan, but it works! This has two advantages: first, it increases the general amount of radiation in the background without creating anti-nuclear demonstrations; and it makes certain that of nuclear power is the future of energy! Then the release of radionuclides into the environment and that causes diseases is better distributed throughout the territory of Japan. This distribution will get rid of the idea that the Fukushima region was more affected than other areas, so that overall accident will not seem so bad.
If municipalities refuse to burn radioactive waste, make the same process happen at the county level instead. The nuclear industry has managed to buy off everyone, whether to build a plant, or to approve the installation of a nuclear waste storage center, accept cremating nuclear waste or to bury radioactive waste anywhere it is desired.
12) Never use the term disaster
Instead use the terms “accident” or “incident” that are more appropriate. The nuclear industry does not have the means to take on a new disaster, Chernobyl has already cost too much.
It is essential to spread this idea that nuclear power is not dangerous. Regardless of whether there has been deaths or if there will be, the only interest is to safeguard the profits generated by the nuclear industry.
Using politicians to spread these lies is important, because they are more credible: “[Nuclear] is an energy that has not killed anyone.” (Gérard Longuet)
14) When people die, never say that people died because of radioactivity.
There are lots of names of diseases, use one of these names, it’s pretty simple: lightning, leukemia, heart attacks, overwork, stress, heat, strokes, etc. Otherwise, a trick to avoid talking about the deaths of the workers is not to recognize employees who do dangerous work, especially in the early months. Just use massive corporate outsourcing, laying off workers once they have completed their work and voila, if they die after being laid off, that death has nothing to do with Fukushima!
15) Arrange the lives of radiation contaminated people as if nothing bad had ever happened, to make the public believe that everything is normal in the severely radiation contaminated territories.
Example: organize marathons on the roads and radiation contaminated Fukushima Prefecture paths. The use of children who are unaware of the danger is excellent to convey a visual impact that everything is ‘normal’ and ‘safe’ again: “If parents allow their children to breath in the dust from Fukushima, then that means that there is really no danger. Get people to think about and participate in these safe and normal events in radiation contaminated areas.
16) Clear search engines of direct links that lead to articles which are too sensitive
What is annoying with the Internet is that Internet sites include these items and users can finally access them. It is very unfortunate that people get too much information on the effects of low-dose radiation on health for millions of people living near nuclear power plants in the world. Misinformation on low doses of radiation, making it seem that low doses of radiation are harmless, is essential for the future of the nuclear industry. If necessary, do not hesitate to neutralize scientists who are providing information about the dangers of low dose radiation.
You also have to explain to people that if you stay in a good mood, it stops the radiation: according to Professor Yamashita, Advisor to the Managing health risks due to radiation in Fukushima Prefecture, “To tell the truth, the radiation does not affect people who smile.. This was clearly demonstrated by the animal studies. “
Then idyllic produce videos like this to convince recalcitrant definitely, especially tourists, to make them believe that in heaven Fukushima soil dust is clean, and that children can play in peace.
Therefore summarize the speech of supporters of the nuclear industry who want to delete or erase this nuclear disaster completely. Yes, there has been an accident at a nuclear power plant in Fukushima. But hey, it was there for over a year. In fact, there was no death and the buildings are in cold shut down, being decommissioned. The small amount of radioactivity that is released is totally diluted in the vastness of the ocean, and in any case the radioactivity is not hazardous to health. Instead, man made radiation creates paradise where life is good and rejuvenates people and animals. (hormesis theory) Seen in this way, it is not life grand?
19) Decontaminate areas where the radiation counters are placed
Example 1: A reader of this blog noticed that the level of radioactivity in the Fukushima Daiichi plant had fallen in March 2012. To avoid anyone realizing the fact that the plant radioactively pollutes the environment every day of the year and that this has a cumulative negative effect, simply clean the vicinity of 8 radiation measurement stations, thus proving that the entire site’s radioactivity levels are declining, instead of rising.
Evidence of this was given by entourloupe a courageous journalist Takashi Uesugi, who came there to do the radiation measurement. Near the terminal M-7, the radiation measures 100 mSv/h while close to the protected sensor the radiation level is only 9.3 mSv/h
Example 2 after noticing that his own Geiger counter measures were significantly higher than those submitted by radiation checkpoint stations provided by MEXT, a citizen of Fukushima has shown that radiation monitoring station is secretly decontaminated to reduce recorded levels of radiation.
20) Combating “harmful rumors” by passing secrecy laws
In April 2011, so that citizens cannot say anything about Fukushima in a ‘negative’ way, the Japanese government decided to enforce the law rigorously regarding independent criticism of government policy. Any stories about the Fukushima nuclear disaster, only the government can now decide what citizens can and can not say in public about it. No negative comments are allowed anymore.
For example, the advertising agency Asatsu-DK was responsible for overseeing publications on the Internet. According to a report to METI (Ministry of Industry in Japan) on their Internet spying program, he was asked the agency to snoop on public and social fabric in order to prevent “harmful rumors”. It therefore snooped on the messages on Twitter, on public forums and other forms of online media such as blogs and websites, to provide guidelines for official communication. But the report does not say how espionage was used on the individuals involved.
When you can not cheat on the numbers, cheat on dates. Misinformation by omission is an inexpensive and convenient technique. For example, making an annual assessment by taking into account two weeks scrambling understanding assured!
– Estimation of the IRSN
In his study of the March 9, 2012 entitled “The Fukushima accident one year on: environmental and health situation in Japan,” the IRSN estimates releases of Cs-137 only from 12 to 25 March 2011, emphasizing the fact that total radiation release at Fukushima is less than the releases from Chernobyl: which was 21 PBq.
Why did IRSN limit the ‘estimated’ total amount of radiation released by Fukushima to two weeks? To minimize the actual releases. In presenting the data and IRSN practiced active denial. Even up to years later, the IRSN “forgot” to take into account that Fukushima Daiichi has never ceased to discharge radionuclides into the environment! (And the official computer generated ‘estimates’ have nothing to do with the actual real, live radiation amounts that were released.)
May 10, 2012, YouTube has removed the account Tokyobrowntabby. Using this name was a resident of Tokyo who was broadcasting videos about Fukushima, with English and Japanese subtitles.
We also remember the disappearance of Alex Counts, a French expatriate who was making almost daily video reports of the nuclear disaster …
Kna60, who also suffered restrictions on YouTube, explains this phenomenon perfectly control of large firms on videos. Incidentally, there are two videos made by Alex in 2011 that are worth a visit if you’ve never watched!
In Dec. 2014, the AGRP video channel with over 1,300 creative commons licensed videos was deleted three times, and then permanently erased the fourth time along with the gmail account and google plus account, no explanation, no warning, no notice.
23) Stop epidemiological investigations
When a scientific study will contradict the official message of health being increased vis-à-vis the radioactivity, it is necessary to stop the study on the grounds that it could lead to confusion in the population.
June 14, 2012, we learned that Professor Shinji Tokonami University of Hirosaki had been ordered by the authorities to stop Fukushima a study launched in April 2011 and planned to study the radiation exposure of a hundred people in the Fukushima area. In the 62 cases studied, iodine-131 was detected in the thyroid gland of 50 people.
If there are too many deaths in a contaminated area, it is best to remove the obituary, as it might alert the public to what is happening.
Iori Mochizuki informs us through his blog Fukushima Diary of June 17, 2012 a local newspaper Fukushima interrupted his obituary for one week (10 June 2012).
The Fukushima Minpo is the largest local newspaper in Fukushima, he was updating his obituary every day, he drew attention by the scale of its obituary for a population like that of Fukushima. There were between 40 and 60 people listed, of all ages. No explanation is given for the interruption.
If a journalist is too thorough in a journalistic investigation that reveals collusion or corruption, then he must be made an example of by a trial that will serve as a lesson for those tempted to do the same thing. The nuclear village should not be disturbed in it’s affairs by pesky investigative reporters.
Since May 2012, freelance journalist Minoru Tanaka is being accused of defamation by the president of a company making security systems for nuclear power plants, following his investigations of the management of the nuclear incident at the plant Fukushima- Daiichi. http://fr.rsf.org/japon-Fukushima-hard-court-10-07-2012,42990.html
26) Tampering with dosimeters to reduce the radiation dose of workers
We have seen via (No. 19) that one can easily create the illusion of a nuclear plant accident disappearing by playing with the radiation detector stations. We can do the same with the workers: you can give the illusion that the plant is not dangerous for the workers, and that they can work much longer before reaching their lifetime maximum radiation dose. Simply ask them to put their personal dosimeter in a small case of lead. And in another magic technique, presto, neither is radiation seen nor known. There is no radiation, if the records are erased!
Especially around things like this, which are totally illegal, we must be discreet. If the matter is made public, then one must quickly find a scapegoat to blame for this very common but prohibited practice. Thus, we have the fall guy, which is the subsidiary TOKYO Energy Systems, which is a subsidiary of TEPCO, who got caught doing this. Too bad for that company!
To minimize the dismal state of structures after an explosion caused by nuclear energy, use a photo editing software to fix the vision of the reactor buildings.
A good example around the reactor 4 building, which has a very dangerous spent fuel pool 30 meters in height, which must be supported with strong walls. If there are openings, cracks and fissures created by a massive explosion, just photoshop in some white onto the walls, and now the walls are repaired, and the building looks good!
It’s good to seem transparent at first, it is the official image of the nuclear industry must be preserved. But beware, after a while, you must remove access to the original information because researchers who are somewhat overzealous could research the disaster too extensively. Removing free access to source documents is a basic principle.
We must follow the example of the ancient Japanese nuclear safety authority that had a library with 40,000 open access materials. This library was closed. The trick was to take advantage of the structural change to stop this service.
In countries where the Internet cannot be curbed, it is necessary to have a network of science journalists who ‘debunk’ and attack information that appears in blogs and newspapers which may inform people about what is actually going on.
For this, when an article tarnishes the reputation of the nuclear industry, create an article to counter it. This article must strongly emphasize the lack of professionalism of the author or challenge unsubstantiated sources.
It’s pretty easy to put the spotlight on an insignificant error that was not necessarily related to the substance of the article. Therefore, attention is diverted and the newspaper or the author are discredited. The reader should especially remember that the ‘real information’ has to be official, and the rest is just dismissed as disinformation.That way you put all the alternative sites in the same bag and voila, no more Fukushima mega nuclear disaster.
This technique is regularly used by Sylvestre Huet brilliantly in his blog Sciences², especially with the article “Fukushima misinformation about 4 pool.” In his post, the reporter does not hesitate to attack and put down a colleague Nouvel Observateur by focusing on a simple plastic tarp and status of the pool.
