Facts We Don’t Want to Look at, Which Will Kill Us – Dr. Helen Caldicott on Fukushima and the Perils of Nuclear

Over one million have already died from Chernobyl, says Dr. Helen Caldicott. Also, she says deaths from Fukushima will be far greater. It is already one hundred thousand excess deaths in North America. It will go into the hundreds of thousands, minimum.

She says a few days after Fukushima, “I got this horrifying, horrifying vision, feeling that this was like descending into hell. And that there’s nothing anyone could do about it, or will be able to do about it. And that the results are irreversible.”

The nuclear industry is a front for the weapons industry.

The nuclear industry is banking on the fact that “solid” cancers will only be showing up in extraordinary amounts in twelve to sixteen years.

Nuclear waste has a half life of 25,000 years. It needs to be guarded that long. It is still deadly after 250,000 years.

Dr. Caldicott has been an expert in this field for many years and has written a number of books on it.

Helen Caldicott Bio:

Australian physician, author, and anti-nuclear activist Helen Caldicott discusses with Earth Focus correspondent Miles Benson what the Fukushima disaster really means for the health and future of the people of Japan. Dr. Caldicott also explains the links between nuclear power and public health in the United States and Europe. Dr. Caldicott received her medical degree from the University of Adelaide Medical School. In 1977, she joined the staff of Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Boston and taught pediatrics at the Harvard Medical School from 1977 to 1978. She served as President of Physicians for Social Responsibility, an organization of 23,000 doctors committed to educating others on the dangers of nuclear energy from 1978-1983. She also worked to establish similar groups focused on education about the risks of nuclear energy, nuclear weapons and nuclear war. One such group, International Physicians for Prevention of Nuclear War was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985. She is the author of seven books including: Nuclear Madness (1979); Missile Envy (1984); If You Love This Planet: A Plan to Heal the Earth (1992 and 2009); The New Nuclear Danger: George W. Bush’s Military Industrial Complex (2001 and 2004) and Nuclear Power is Not the Answer to Global Warming or Anything Else (2006). The Smithsonian Institution named Dr. Caldicott as one of the most influential women of the 20th century.

Personal Note:

This is how I feel about those who want to quibble over the figures of the ongoing apocalypse upon us from Fukushima (which is only one of many we need to face, as my readers know).
I believe this discussion is like arguing over the size of the kitchen table while the house is burning down. I encourage everyone to do their research. As Caldicott said, the nuclear industry is banking on us not waking up until the solid cancers show up in 12 to 16 years. But people have already died and are dying in droves.
People who would be alive except for Fukushima…”excess deaths.” And you could be one of them, more soon than you want to believe. It is up to you whether you want to face it or not. I have no stake in this.
There are many who are courageous enough to face this. I’ll let others deal with the folks in denial. We don’t have time for that. We’ll try to save them either way. We don’t require any fucking “conversion” on this or anything. I’m getting nothing out of this but the feeling of doing the right thing in an emergency (mixed in with the slings and arrows from those who attack because they are terrified of knowing).

Fukushima Alert! Apocalypse Now?

Fukushima Apocalypse. Is this the end of the world? For real this time?

Linda Ayres shared this yesterday:

The radiation contamination from the melting down reactors is already contaminating the sea, and the air, and the food, and the children and all living things on this planet. The scientists believe there is no ‘solution’ to this extinction level event (except the ‘mad scientists’ who allege there is no danger in a nuclear holocaust). However, stopping the airborne spewing of the 1400 lethal radioactive isotopes will slow down this death machine.

We have nearly 10 months of non-stop radiation contamination hitting the planet…the radioactive debris from Japan has just recently hit the shores of North America….what do you think that travelling radiation did to the oceans?

Never before in the history of mankind has there been a disaster of this magnitude. Reactors require cooling pools … Fukushima lost its cooling pools in March…so you see, we’re doomed on those counts.

Tepco is alleging ‘cold shut down’ and ‘victory’…NO LIE LASTS FOREVER. DEATH COUNTS RISING. THE REACTOR CORES NEED TO BE COOLED…EITHER THE SEA MUST BE BROUGHT TO THE MELTING DOWN CORES, OR THE CORES MUST BE DROPPED INTO THE SEA. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE IN MARCH. MILLIONS MORE WILL DIE BECAUSE OF THE DELAYS AND WRINGING OF HANDS.

Advocates of genocide and death machines allege there is no real problem with multiple reactors melting down, contaminating the entire planet, and the same crowd also thinks the leaking radiation from local reactors is ‘harmless’. KNK – killer nuke knuckleheads….the crowd leading the lies….
Research the impacts of radiation poisoning…the kids will die first, around the world….genetic mutations…lots of illness and death…in Japan and around the world.

[The question of why it would be a good idea to put the nukes in the ocean since that will contaminate all the oceans of the globe and perhaps kill them off] is a common question. It’s been asked since March 11….meanwhile, the contamination of the planet accelerates….. World Powers must immediately address the issue, or they will have no one left to ‘govern’. Love one another like there is no tomorrow, as it is being cancelled….

Some comments:

To a comment that the above is full of hyperbole, I responded:

Michael Adzema: If she is only 1% correct, it is more important than 99% of the crap that gets shared on FB and takes up people’s time. The problem we have is with people’s inability to look at things this horrible. So I understnad why you would want to think the way you do. I want to think the way you do, too. But my reason tells me that would be foolish, since only a tiny fraction of this would mean death on a scale never before seen. Enjoy your denial while you can… And I very much hope you are right and she and I are fools.

Temujin Subodai: The should have entombed it while they had the chance. Just like Chernobyl. Just like Michio Kaku recommended.

Michael Adzema: That crossed my mind, too. I thought that was where we were headed, actually. But from this news it seems it has gone way beyond that by now. I’ve got no upnote to leave on.

Gela Onthemove: horrendous catastrophe to all life on this planet – how can anyone ignore it ?- I still have in my ears the refusal to international help offered to Tepco and Japan – in the very first days after the Tsunami…

Michael Adzema: I agree, Gela. And apparently too horrendous to be thought about…hence the reason it was never handled in any way that would have given us a chance. We are app going to die off like bacteria that has overrun its petri dish. I hope I am a fool and am wrong.

To a comment equating nuclear radiation with that which comes from the sun and wanted to hear more about actual radiation levels, I responded.

Michael Adzema: I think what you say is the propaganda they put out. Ann Coulter once said, “Radiation is good for you.” You are in bed with her. If you don’t like that, you need to rethink your position and do more research. I have. What I have found out is that you are horrifically wrong.

Btw, I have a little experience in this area. I was one of the group that brought nuclear power construction to a halt in the US in the early 80s. I worked on this full time for years. And we were right about what we said back then, as Fukushima has shown.

I have articles I could direct anyone to. I think that responses like this one are mostly part of people’s understandable defense systems to this kind of horror and that there is no real interest in knowing the facts.
