☢ MP3 - Fukushima Deteriorating - Yoichi Shimatsu and Jeff Rense 01-09-12 ☢

I remember last time on the show they were talking about how could 2012 become any worse than 2011. Well it turns out that the first day, 1 January 2012 we got the answer. The Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant is in serious trouble.

Jeff Rense is here with Yoichi Shimatsu again and this time.. It sounds bad, I mean really bad. I’m talking about military taking over at the Fukushima plant and pulling out workers because the recent earthquakes. The Fukushima plant is now evacuated and in emergency state. There is movement still at the plant, but the earthquakes have cracked the fuel pool above reactor 4 and drained all water. Plutonium have been released and even been detected by Michael Collins in the US 30 000 feet up in the Jet Stream, radiation is traveling all over the Northern Hemisphere. 

You got to hear this amazing audio with Jeff Rense and Yoichi Shimatsu. It’s a must hear!

Jeff Rense - 01-09-12 – HR3 – From Hong Kong – Yoichi Shimatsu – Fukushima Deteriorating

Also listen to the interview with Michael Collins about his radiation measurments in the US.
☢ MP3 Fukushima Deteriorating with Jeff Rense and Yoichi Shimatsu 12 Dec 2011 ☢

Transcribed first minutes:

Jeff Rense: OK and welcome back, lets go over to Hong Kong and talk to Yoichi Shimatsu our colleague and the man who has contributed so much to our understanding of the catastrophe that now envelopes the entire Northern Hemisphere. Again the story out today, it’s actually been out for a while but recapitulated nicely by Plutonium from Fukushima made it all around the planet, we know that now. We just heard Michael Collins describing what his readings where, flying an aircraft back to Michigan from California at 20 – 30 000 feet. Extraordinary levels being measured on the incoming air from outside which would suggest the obvious that there is a lot of radio nuclide activity, Isotopes if you will, in the Jet stream at higher elevations which are slow to settle down, but they have circled as Yoichi said they would the Northern Hemisphere and things are not getting any better. Hello my friend and welcome back.

Yoichi Shimatsu: Hello Jeff I like to wish you a happy new year but unfortunately this year I mean the very early hours of the first .. year, at the .. of new years day, right as it began we see another major new event at Fukushima.

Jeff Rense: Yeah

Yoichi Shimatsu: The plant in the last week, the plant have been evacuated, there is a massive emergency going on, many of the Fukushima plant workers not only been pulled out of the plant but out of the whole environment there, from out of Fukushima province entirely. A lot of people contaminated with Plutonium, a major event of military helicopters streaming in and 100s if not 1000s of Police officers moving up there very quietly at night time. 

Jeff Rense: What’s… OK.. They are blocking off the entire plant with hundreds or maybe 1000s of..

Yoichi Shimatsu: .. Evacuated workers are being pulled out of there...

Jeff Rense: Now are we confirmed on this Yoichi? 

Yoichi Shimatsu: Yeah, pretty much we got witnesses in towns all over, radiation levels are up, the Plutonium they just saw probably came from this recent event. What happened is that 2:30 in the morning, major earthquake occurred in the Izu Islands, they are part, they are right of Tokyo, in fact they are part of Tokyo prefecture, Hachijo-jima a very deep earthquake. And this fault line in fact directly is part of the central axis fault line that goes right up the middle of Japan north worth. As I described earlier it looks like you know we are in for some geological changes, there is a major Volcanic explosion expected by the meteorological agency. The quake thought, did not damage buildings, it did apparently crack the cooling tank above reactor 4, the MOX reactor, there is no water up there in the pool the cooling pool. And apparently a lot of the spent fuel rods where .. around, knocked over causing meltdown, Plutonium released and the evacuation of the plant. And now it is all on emergency. Now this have all gotten by for two reasons. Obviously the government have imposed national security regulation so that the media is not reporting. And the other thing is that you know the Japanese official holidays for new years is very long, it’s the most important holiday of the year so it’s usually 6 days but because of the weekend it went into 8 days so basically we are just coming out of the new years holiday and you know in Japan people don’t go out and drink and all that, they stay at home very quietly. So right now the full dimensions of this, are yet to really come out to the public. But we are picking up you know this incredible mobilization in the early part of the new years week which was .. drove by some of the residents along the highways .. down.

Jeff Rense: Yeah alright this is very..

Yoichi Shimatsu: There is a national holiday, there was suppose to be a cold shutdown as TEPCO and the nuclear industry had promised and so this was just an emergency that could not have gone unnoticed. So therefore we are seeing something occurring here and you just mentioned I heard Mr. Collins had picked up some Plutonium in the atmosphere, probably as an result of this.. Levels are spiking.. 

Jeff Rense: According to one of the reports, a major pipe to the SFP (Spent Fuel Pool) in reactor 4 broke, all the water came out of the tank. The tank was seen to be actually what they call boiling without water, that means it had gone critical again.. That’s right, the spent fuel pool was and is melting down. So they actually pulled the workers out of there, because of this they’d be dead obviously immediately, they would not have any suckers to run.. 

Yoichi Shimatsu: Well obviously some of them have evacuated completely out of the whole area so they must have been contaminated, this must have taken them by surprise, again the quake was at 2:30 in the morning on the 1 Jan 2012 a lot of workers probably were you know resting fairly soundly this is a … so it’s early. So a lot of them were exposed to the radiation and now so we have another massive dent in the workforce, I mean we are running out of what we call human robots, we are running out of people with suicidal tendencies who are willing to work at the plant.

Jeff Rense: Or Yakusa volunteers..

Yoichi Shimatsu: Yeah the entire plant is at stake because if you don’t have enough manpower to you know watch over the pump that are going into the reactor cores, eventually you are going to have breakdowns, maintenance problems, refueling problems, switching problems so this is really a critical situation. And it’s so critical that the Japanese government, TEPCO and the media are not reporting on something this massive. 

Jeff Rense: Two more earthquakes, actually 3, two more today (9 Jan 2012) a M3.5 and a M2.7 residents are reporting that these quakes for some reason feel like they are directly underground like they are bombs going off and odd, they say they are different, they are not offshore 20-30 miles. They are actually occurring in the worse possible location apparently right under the Fukushima plant.

Yoichi Shimatsu: Well what’s happening is there is energy being released along the entire, all 4 fault lines, basically the whole Island is sort of rotating and moving upward to the north and so basically this is, you know and as more energy released like smaller quakes that builds up at a certain point and you get a massive release like we just did with the M7.0. And the meteorological agency’s is expecting a series of M9.0 earthquakes in the immediate, in the near future.. So we are looking at, we are looking at some massive quake action, and already there is a lot of Volcano sort of half eruption or the initial stages of eruption now so we can expect much, much more activity like this which is only going to knock out the energy supply, cut of roads and so on. So we are in for a really devastating year and this again like I said, it’s 2:30 in the morning on January 1, so you know I don’t know how you take it happy 2012.

Jeff Rense: Well I have been using that very same caveat with my wishes to people, Happy New Year, I’m sorry there is not much Happy out there, that’s the truth.

Yoichi Shimatsu: That’s right.. So anyways, so second cover-up, we are not even a year out of this thing and we got another major cover-up underway ok..

Jeff Rense: One more M7.5 and the Spent Fuel Pool at building 4 will likely come down. And most of the building will come down with it. 

Yoichi Shimatsu: Well it is tilting as you said, and the racks are all in disarray 

Jeff Rense: Oh they are a mess, we got pictures of them now….

☢ The Radioactive Chat ☢

Here you can chat live and stay updated with others about the events taking place. Share with friends and bookmark!

Geiger Counters - Radiation Detection Meters - Handheld Radiation Detector

When it comes to radiation detection meters you really have a wide field of gadgets to choose from, however radiation detectors are the most common to use. First of all if you need to know what type of radiation you are looking for. There are Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation detectors. And also there is neutron emission of nuclear radiation. And all these different types of emissions have radiation detectors for a specific type of radiation that you can buy radiation detector for. Some also measure both Alpha and Beta. Others detect Alpha, Beta and Gamma. While others let you measure Beta and Gamma radiation.

What most people have use for though are Dosimeters you can buy a handheld radiation detector pretty cheap that are good addition to a survival kit. There are different kinds that you can use that will detect radiation. There are radiation badges that will tell you when radiation become high. Workers at nuclear power plants use these to inform them of how much radiation they have been exposed to. Now also children in the Fukushima prefecture have each been given a radiation badge so they know if they are exposed to radiation. Some come in the shape of a pen that you can carry in your pocket while other are made more compact so that you can attach them to your keychain. And then you have what is called a personal radiation monitor. These are also called Dosimeters and also normally called Geiger counters. Although not all use the Geiger-Muller Tube for the radiation detection some use a semiconductor instead. These and mostly the older geiger counters seen are pretty big to carry around, so they might not be best suited for a survival situation where you only need to carry the most important things. However if you have land and want to check radiation around the property and drinking water then these are the geiger counters to get because they are very well built units.

These are the once that you normally see people use. They have different units of radiation detection, because when it comes to radiation there are many standards used. some give the measurements in Rads, while other use Sieverts. Some have the maximum radiation value for the measured radioactivity quite low but they will still give you an idea of the amount of radiation in the area. With the units ranging from between background radiation 0.001 mSv/hr all the way up to 10 Sv/h. Normally a dosimeter will measure radiation in micro siverts per hour. If you were to walk into one of the reactor units at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant you probably would get an error reading from your dosimeter because the radiation levels are so high there.

Note that some places outside the exclusion zone in Fukushima that are too radioactive for people to live in have areas where the radiation levels are above 30 Sv/h. So if you are in a area that have high radiation the radiation detectors would also there go off the scale. However Geiger counters or radiation detectors are still favored as general purpose alpha/beta/gamma portable radiation detectors and radiation detection equipment, due to their low cost and robustness. Most come with an LCD Display that show you the radioactivity in the area. Nowdays you will even get alarm sound and the possibility to connect the device to a computer. Either with a Infrared, Bluetooth or USB connection.

So if you look at the radiation detectors for sale that have this, then these radiation detection meters will allow you to make maps of contaminated areas that show where the radiation is high and low. This also will help you to see which areas are becoming more contaminated over time. With several nuclear reactors in the US and around the world located near fault zones that makes it a danger if a big earthquake would hit the area there is always a good choice to have a radiation dosimeter avaliable. I'm sure many in Fukushima would have been grateful to have dosimeters avaliable at the time of the disaster and I am sure you to would be grateful to have a geiger counter handy when you need one.
