The disgusting world of nuclear power: Pandora's Promise

There is some movie called Pandora's Promise which is more-or-less nuclear industry cheerleading in town with a full blown event going on. People will be nibbling on delicious cesium tainted tea leaves straight from Fukushima Prefecture I would assume. [ https://twitter.com/PandorasPromise ]

Someone posted, Come to the Republic in Calhoun Square to meet, eat, and discuss the film after the 4:50pm showing on Fathers' Day, June 16. http://www.republicmn.com/ And some UN panel said that everything is fine, the accident is over, no real risk of disease or doom from this thing. etc. See: http://www.unis.unvienna.org/unis/en/pressrels/2013/unisinf475.html

Okay let's check out whats the latest in the happy world of Nuclear News. This whole UN report is based on a false premise: Unlike Chernobyl which popped, burned and was contained relatively quickly, Fukushima is not even done leaking yet, and radiation has turned up in fish, fallout across Pacific Northwest. etc.

Akio Matsumura, Diplomat: "Let me clarify. We are facing global disaster — catastrophe — occurring. From that perspective, over 40 years, 50 years, or maybe 100 years. We cannot escape from this fact. …. This radioactive material, or contaminated water, any cases, reach out to your west coast as well. If you are counting on Japan, I can assure you now they do not take serious action."

Let's see how their nationwide nightmare goes in last few DAYS:

Most recently http://fukushima-diary.com/2013/06/260-bqm3-of-sr-90-measured-in-30m-nor... 260 Bq/m3 of Sr-90 measured in 30m north of reactor5, 6 discharge channel and the UN panel fails to mention Strontium at all.

12 Fukushima children diagnosed to have thyroid cancer, 15 more suspected to have cancer, “300% up since February” [URL]

According to Fukushima prefectural government, the average tumor size was bigger by 28% in 2012 than 2011.

In 2011, 12 malignant or possibly malignant cases were found (One of them turned out to be benign nodule from surgery.). The average diameter of the tumor was approximately 14.1 mm.

In 2012, 16 malignant or possibly malignant cases were found. The average diameter of the tumor was approximately 18.1 mm, which is bigger than 2011 by 28%.

Spare tank for leaking reservoirs started leaking too, Tepco didn’t weld it http://fukushima-diary.com/2013/06/spare-tank-for-leaking-reservoirs-sta... 400 tones of ground water flow into the plant on the daily basis. In order to manage the shortage of contaminated water storage, they built 7 reservoirs. However, 3 of them leaked highly contaminated water.

These are merely some headlines going back to June 5th. This monster is still oozing all over the place and contaminating tons of food and water.

Overall we need to quit building fission related technology, it is a mess on many levels, particularly if any of them are hit by disasters like tsunamis, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes etc.

Probably a release of energy technology from the military industrial complex, along with winding down energy consumption as much as possible, [aka downshifting civilization before it implodes] would be a good place to start looking at this.
