The aftermath of Japan's Fukushima nuclear meltdown from 2011 is still fresh on our minds so Kevin Pereira talks to Michael Collins from EnviroReporter.com on his radioactive rain and what this means for our own safety.

    I tried posting earlier, but the profanity censor will not allow mention of the Japanese city name where this radioactive disaster occurred. It starts with an F, so everyone should know what I'm talking about.

    I'm very glad that G4 TV has broken this story in the main stream media. We have a serious problem developing with radioactive isotopes falling from the sky, being transported on the ocean, and being lofted on sea spray onto the coastal areas of the Western US and Canada. There is has been a lot of silence on this topic, and many people are still unaware of the threat to their food supply, and growing nature of the problem. Those reactors are not safe, and cannot be made safe anytime soon. The radiation will continue to leak into the environment, and many of the isotopes do not decay away quickly. This means they will accumulate over time, and will concentrate within living organisms that eventually become our food.

    Michael Collins and G4 TV are to be congratulated for bringing this information to the public's attention. I would like to see more of this kind of programming on TV news shows. The continuing Japanese radiation calamity merits an ongoing investigation by serious regional and national TV news organzations.

    Wow, I totally over posted this page. Sorry eveyone. I don't post very often. The profanity filter won't let you post the name of the city where the reactors were damaged. It is almost like a bad word, so that could be why. Please excuse my paranoia. I was able to post most of my diatribe, with moderate edits, and appearantly I was so happy about that that I posted it four or five times.

    Thanks

    The U.S. raised the legal safe limit of the radioactive particulate involved, and floating over here on the jetstream, shortly after the meltdown. Some isotopes were raised 100,000's of times. If that isn't complicitcy in the possible "fallout" from this disaster, I don't know what is. The government of Tokyo, located not far from the meltdown, had laws in place to evacuate the city if the radiation levels got to a certain level, and that level was reached after the meltdown. The guy in charge decided not to evacuate because it might cause a panic. It was still unsafe, but not evacuated due to a possible panic.... Seriously.

    The point is that folks can and should not be panicing, but they can take measures now that will lead them to be less likely to get cancer in the next few decades. They could have told us to take potassium iodide, to protect from radioactive iodine, which lasts for about 8 days after it is created and causes goiters and thyroid cancer. Then long term, boron and some other algae detoxifiers can pull the radiation we are all breathing in and consuming everyday, if we live in the northern hemisphere, out of our systems.

    We were all fighting off cancer multiple times a day before this happened and we will have to find a way to survive somehow with the cancer danger having seriously increased, not to mention the increase statistically in birth defects. The "non-emergency" is only because we are only going to have long-term affects. Increased cancer risk and increased birth defects due to increased radiation in the environment and food supply (not just fish, but anything in open air while the radiation plume was traveling over).

    What's worse, Radiation of the Corexit they used on the gulf oil spill? They are both terrible and will have ramifications for the rest of our perceptable future. We need to take the world around us more seriously. There is always something under the rock, if you are willing to lift it. It is always better to know the truth and make preparations for it. Ignorance is bliss, but all is peaceful in the livestock yard.


    Good luck everybody.

    it's not U.S. it's the name of the town it happened in and the big town nearby that are tagged as "profanity"

    The us changed the laws in the us and now it is safe for citizens of the us to breathe more radiation in the us. Why would the us do that? Why us. This comment is a test to see what they are using as a filter.

    it also deletes the letters that stand for underware showing and our country, in the last comment

    The radiation is comming over here steadily. The changed the laws to make it safe for there to be that much radiation. Take precautions and be knowlegeable.

    It's the name of the town. You can't post the name of the town.

    I'll try again. The U.S. raised the legal safe limit of many types of radiation in the environment days after it

    jetstream?

    Maybe plume, particulate, Tokyo, corexit

    Seriously, I wrote a page long thing. They must have some of the pertinent words set as "profanity."

    I was going to comment about how radiation is just something you need to prepare for.

    This thing won't let me leave the comment I want to. It says it's "profanity."

    I think that guy was a bit alarmist. The truth about how serious this is in America right now is probably not as dire as he made it look *AT THE MOMENT*. No amount of background radiation is "good" for you though. And EVERYONE should know about this issue, the media is covering it up for sure. Japan is on the edge like you wouldn't believe. I expect the whole of japan may be evacuated in weeks, months, years to come... tens of millions of people. Its the end of nuclear power, for sure. Given time, they are winding up after this. It's to big a risk, always has been.

    There is a lot of hype and miscommunication going around, people don't understand the numbers on those devices, whats normal, whats not, and what kind of levels we deal with every day at home or at work. You can scare someone easily with those devices

    Some people drum this issue up into a extinction level event, which i think is unlikely. Although it's huge and i dont want to downplay it, but don't jump on that doomsday band wagon.

    Radiation is long term effect, nothing will kill you right away. We are talking about a 5-70 year incubation period for a possible cancer as an example. Right now you are more likely to be killed by a drunk driver or your neighbour than Japan

    If anyone wants to follow this issue to the hour, a reliable place to look I believe is http://enenews.com

    And a sober voice to listen for on this issue is Arnie Gundersen. Very trusted and knowledgeable expert in the field.
