Dr. Paolo Scampa Reports That Fukushima Released 3,000 Billion Lethal Doses Of Radiation

http://cinemaforumfukushima.org/2012/05/06/archive-footage-of-the-nyc-press-conference-may-4th-2012/

“Dr Paolo Scampa, a widely know EU Physicist, single handedly popularized the easily understood Lethal Doses concept. “Lethal Doses”; what does it mean?

Dr. Paolo has estimated that Fukushima in total has released radiation that equals approximately “three thousand billion (3,000,000,000,000) lethal doses of radiation. This is up from about 70 Billion = 70,000,000,000 Billion Lethal Doses” released as of March 23, 2011. Fukushima continues to leak invisible, deadly, cancer and genetic disease causing radiation.

Fukushima is getting worse because it continues to leak radiation 24 hours a day. Huge one wall metal radiation waste storage tanks are being built on site that house screaming hot nuclear liquid waste, but NONE of these hundreds or thousands of metal tanks is earthquake proof, much less freeze proof. 


Hanford in the USA built huge liquid radiation tanks also, and they are now leaking into the groundwater and the Columbia River. This radiation is added to the radiation coming from old abandoned uranium mines.

This disaster is not over. The mass media mostly pays no attention to Fukushima, or if it does, it minimizes and spins the disaster into something that sounds minor and completely done with. The government is now asking residents to move back in. It is bringing in children to play in the highly radioactive zone and promoting the province as a ‘tourist’ destination for exchange students. 


Meanwhile, the mass media TV ‘programming’ focuses on dancing stars, trials of murderers, divorces and traffic accidents, as well as other minutia, instead of on issues such as nuclear power, which can easily cause a life extinction event. 

Most people seem to accept the ‘programming’, and cannot believe that anything else is possible, even when confronted with facts and proof.http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/05/28/fukushima-how-many-chernobyls-is-it/

Comparing Contaminated Zones Around Chernobyl And Fukushima Ocean Radiation Released

The New York Times reports that the contaminated zone around Chernobyl; “the contaminated area, designated by Ukraine’s Parliament as 15,000 square miles. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/20/weekinreview/20chernobyl.html


According to Wiki; 1 square mile = 2.58998811 km

Square kilometre – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Factoring in the above square miles and adjusting for difference, the contaminated zone around Chernobyl would equal 38,000 square kilometers.


The Fukushima crisis created massive amounts of radiation that went out mostly over the Pacific ocean due to the prevailing winds. 


If we focus ONLY on the HIGHLY contaminated land at 10,000 Bq/m2 or more, over 30,000 square kilometers in Japan exceeded this level. The radiation contaminated land totals around 8 percent of the total land mass of Japan. No wonder they are declaring these contamined zones ‘safe’ and urging residents to move back in.

Take a look at the video animation of radioactive water coming out of Fukushima above. How large is this water leakage radiation contaminated zone?

Japan has a land mass of 145,925 square miles, or 377, 835 square kilometers.  Source:http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_Japan’_s_total_land_area

Just by looking at the contaminated zone in the Pacific Ocean, and comparing it to the size of Japan above, we could assume that the total surface area was at least 3 to 5 times larger than the land area in Japan  TOTAL, wouldn’t you agree?

This means the total amount of ocean that was contaminated with radiation from Fukushima water leaks  is between 1,133,505 to  3,777,000 square kilometers, and growing, because the leaks have not stopped, so this area is growing by the day.

Remember, it was not just highly radioactive water leaking from all of the basements as well as as the many leaks from the Rube Goldberg plastic tubing keeping the reactors and spent fuel pools cool today that are still going into the ocean. 

Plus, when #3 had a nuclear explosion, it blew all of the fuel rods out for 2-3 miles around the plant, with many ending up in the ocean. Those highly radioactive fuel rod pieces contaminate any ocean water flowing by, and will continue to do so for millions of years. For more information about this totally covered up part of this disaster, see the following articles.

The above video shows ONLY one estimate of what happens to the radioactive water leaking into the ocean on a constant basis. Eventually, the whole Pacific Ocean will be contaminated with radiation, unless the SOURCES of radiation coming into are shut off or covered up. Currently, the Japanese are doing little to nothing about this.

Here is some more information about just the implications of radioactive water leaking into the Pacific ocean.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/04/fukushima-leaking-radioactive-water.html


In addition to the radioactive water leaking into the ocean from Fukushima, airborne radiation coming out of Fukushima also ended up on Pacific Ocean, plus all other oceans. Because there is no cover or ‘lid’ on multiple reactors or spent fuel pools, the radioactive release into the air is also continuous from this same plant. 

In addition, melted coriums belch and burp radiation from deep underground, with no end in sight. These coriums plus the basement water in the reactor buildings also contaminate the underground water, which then moves into the ocean.

This may end up contaminating the whole Pacific Ocean, because the water leaks, underground leaks and air releases of radiation into the Pacific Ocean HAVE NOT STOPPED. 

The video below is an estimate of where the airborne radiation is going from Fukushima, but it DOES NOT show the radiation dropping into the ocean. Sadly, the Pacific ocean is where most of the radiation from Fukushima went, but this fact is being covered up, along with lots of other information about this disaster.

Reuters: Contamination concerns growing… High radiation levels 270+ km from meltdowns — Gundersen: Over half of Japanese living in contaminated areas… Includes places 400 km away from Fukushima (VIDEO) February 13, 2012 

The ocean bound radiation from Fukushima went out over a wide area of the Pacific Ocean. 70-95% of the total radiation released by Fukushima went into the Pacific Ocean. The small 5-30% radioactive gas remainder is what went over Japan land masses and made 30,000 square kilometers uninhabitable. 
The New York Times reports that; “Chernobyl-induced radiation in the Black Sea peaked in 1986 at about 1,000 becquerels per cubic meter.. By contrast, the radiation level off the coast near the Fukushima Daiichi plant peaked at more than 100,000 becquerels per cubic meter in early April.” http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/28/fukushimas-contamination-produces-some-surprises-at-sea/

No one has measured the total radiation that went into the ocean either through radioactive water leaks shown in the video model below, or the airborne radiation, shown in the video above.

Here is one attempt at putting together all of the radiation released from Fukushima, instead of splitting it up and only talking about a small piece of what was released, for a limited amount of time, as most mass media outlets end up reporting on. 
Total Fukushima Radiation Released Into Ocean, Air, Groundwater, Storage Tanks; via A Green Road Blog  http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/02/total-fukushima-radiation-released-into.html
Bottom line, if 30,000 square kilometers of Japanese soil is highly contaminated, then we can assume based on most of the radiation going out over the ocean, that 100,000 square miles of ocean were also contaminated to an equivalent degree, just from air releases, NOT counting radioactive water releases. Add the radioactive water releases, PLUS the airborne radiation going into the Pacific and it is easier to understand why some people are starting to call this a potential global life extinction event. 

With multiple reactor melt downs, melt throughs, and multiple spent fuel pool melt downs, fires and possible explosions, Fukushima is without a doubt the largest, most disastrous nuclear event in history.

Three Mile Island Radiation Release Coverups Exposed

In this article, we will explore whether a coverup happened after Three Mile Island. We will also see if this coverup perhaps exposes a pattern of coverups after every nuclear accident, or is it a one time event? Finally, we will explore your concerns, that if a coverup happened, how this coverup scenario affects you and your children, or your whole family?

There are many nuclear power plants all over the United States. Wouldn’t you agree that you and your family may be affected negatively in case of an accident, if there is a pattern of covering up the severity, or even if and when an accident happens? After all, how do you know if and/or when you need to evacuate if the utility and government agencies are denying that a nuclear accident even happened?

In the article; ‘Three Mile Island: Exposing the Government’s Cover Up of Our Most Infamous Nuclear Accident’ it explains how many people died — and are still dying — at Three Mile Island . “ This article goes into some detail about all of the initial assurances of safety and no harm caused to people by radiation by regulators, government, and the utility company involved. All of these assurances turned out to be, well, hokum, but I will leave that to you to decide. http://www.alternet.org/health/134174

In a book about Three Mile Island: ‘They Say Nothing Happened’

“Harvey Wasserman, co-author of Killing Our Own: The Disaster of America’s Experience With Atomic Radiation, stressed that the what happened account comes amid virtually complete inactivity by U.S. media in following up the Three Mile Island accident. (Wasserman has written about the aftermath of TMI for Harrowsmith—5-6/87—and other publications.)” (This same thing happened after Chernobyl, and is now happening after Fukushima. This same scenario seems to happen after EVERY SINGLE NUCLEAR ACCIDENT.)


They interview a lady who did door to door cancer surveys years after the accident, and she said that she found cancer cases AT EVERY HOUSE. This article also points out how the medical industry and the media served as the means to help cover up the whole disaster and all of the consequences of it.

Same old, same old.. The pattern repeats itself… ad nauseum.. In Russia, at Chernobyl, at TMI, in the USA, and now in Japan, at Fukushima. Same old, same old, only getting worse, and bigger. http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=4021

In a report; ‘Investigation: Revelations about Three Mile Island disaster raise doubts over nuclear plant safety’, it talks about how the official govt report and NRC both said that no one was hurt or killed by TMI, just the same as at Fukushima now. At Chernobyl, even to this day, the nuclear apologists say that only a small number of people were hurt or killed.

This same report illustrates that the cancer rate of downwinders was increased by 80% over average citizens not exposed. Read the chilling reports of ‘downwinders’ who experienced high radiation dose signs, which were completely ignored and discounted by the nuclear industry. It sounds just like what is happening around Fukushima and also Chernobyl.

Another Coverup At Three Mile Island? Lies Discovered About Control Rods

There was an initial cover up phase (in addition to as it was happening) right after TMI-2 meltdown happened. The public was not warned or given the proper information, and no specific radiation readings were provided to anyone, (just like after every accident). The NRC Rogovin Commission and the Kennedy Commission claimed that all 69 out of 69 control rods were inserted during the emergency cooling effort, called a scram and that they all worked properly.

Later, everyone involved on the nuclear industry, media and government side came out with public statements officially assuring everyone that not only did all control rods work properly, they all claimed that no one was harmed or killed, and that no harmful amounts of radiation were released. This all turned out to be a lie.

At TMI-2 it was found that the entire central control rod group failed to fall into the core, which is required in order to cool the reactor and keep it from melting down. The rod group circling core central became known as “The Void at the Center of the Core”.

The GEND report was produced to answer questions raised about these control rods. They found that only 61 of them actually did get inserted into the nuclear core, but the rest DID NOT. This is part of what caused a partial meltdown of the core, resulting in 20 tons of nuclear material melting down, with a huge radiation release, that resulted in massive numbers of cancers, genetic diseases and deaths. http://www.southernstudies.org/images/sitepieces/control_rod_analysis.pdf

http://www.tmia.com/tmi Three Mile Island Alert


Information about Three Mile Island’s 1979 partial meltdown emerged when Dr. Steven Wing of UNC-Chapel Hill found a 400 percent increase in cancers among those exposed.” http://www.wncpsr.org/nuclear-power/long-history-of-nuclear-secrecy

The following video goes into cover ups and denials of any radiation leaks at Three Mile Island. There is NO ACCIDENT. It did not occur inside the reactor, it happened OUTSIDE The reactor.. Therefor it was not an accident, just a failure of a piece of machinery outside the reactor. There is no relationship between that and what is called a nuclear accident. http://youtu.be/Fmmdh8Xlbvg 

The authorities said things like: 


“No evacuation is needed” 

“People should ‘stay indoors’”

“All radiation releases is within ‘limits’” 

“A little xenon was released” 

“We are trying to keep everyone informed” 

“We do not know if there will be any more uncontrolled emissions”Regulatory agencies did not call for leaving town, or for mandatory evacuations, even after they knew a meltdown had happened. The governor called for pregnant women and children to leave within a five mile radius of the plant via a VOLUNTARY evacuation.

There were severe communications problems. Conflicting statements came out of the utility, the governor and the NRC.

The meltdown of TMI was called “The Void at the Center of the Core” by a GEND report in 1983 on the TMI-2 endoscopy examination. Reproduced via Xeroxa press release from CII [Coalition for Independent Investigation] in 1986. Developed from a public admission in mid-1982 about that endoscopy and its revelations.

During initial coverup phase after the accident at TMI-2 the nuclear apologists were highly sensitive about anything that intimated that not all the control rods might fall during an emergency scram sequence. At TMI-2 an entire rod group failed to fall. The rod group circling core central, or what became “The Void at the Center of the Core.” 


The GEND report was generated to answer pointed questions about that, since both the Technical Assessment Task Forces of the Kemeny Commission and the NRC’s own Rogovin Commission firmly concluded that 69 of 69 control rods fell during the scram. Only 61 of them actually did. So here we have another coverup on top of all of the others to try and keep all of the lies that they started with consistent.

“Independent measurements provided evidence of radiation levels up to five times higher than normal in locations hundreds of miles downwind from TMI. According to Randall Thompson, the lead health physicist at TMI after the accident (a veteran of the US Navy nuclear submarine program and a self-confessed “nuclear geek”), radiation releases were hundreds if not thousands of times higher. Some other insiders, including Arnie Gundersen, a former nuclear industry executive turned whistle-blower, concur. 


Gundersen offers evidence, based on pressure monitoring data, for a hydrogen explosion shortly before 2 p.m. on 28 March 1979, which would have provided the means for a high dose of radiation to occur. Gundersen cites affidavits from four reactor operators according to which the plant manager was aware of a dramatic pressure spike, after which the internal pressure dropped to outside pressure. Gundersen also notes that the control room shook and doors were blown off hinges. However official NRC reports refer merely to a “hydrogen burn.” The Kemeny Commission referred to “a burn or an explosion that caused pressure to increase by 28 pounds per square inch in the containment building. “

Only two radiation meters were operational. Two meters went off scale, so they were ignored, as they were assumed to be ‘defective’. Radiation exposure estimates were used, rather than radiation readings downwind of the plant.

Another study suggests Three Mile Island radiation may have injured people living near reactor. “Several hundred people at the time of the accident reported nausea, vomiting, hair loss and skin rashes, and a number said their pets died or had symptoms of radiation exposure,” he said. ”

After adjusting for pre-accident cancer incidence, we found a striking increase in cancers downwind from Three Mile Island….it is known that plant radiation monitors went off scale when the accident started.” http://www.unc.edu/news/archives/feb97/wing.html

“Using better analytic and statistical techniques, he found that among the 20,000 people who lived near the plant and close to the plume’s path, lung cancer and leukemia rates were two or more times higher than what they were near the plant but upwind from the plume. Among those in the most direct path of the plumes, lung cancer incidence went up by 300 to 400 percent, and leukemia rates were up by 600 to 700 percent.” http://www.albionmonitor.com/9703a/3milecancer.html

In TMI Facts [Source: Arnold Gundersen, expert witness TMI 1994 trial said that; “TMI’s radiation monitors onsite were off-scale; radiation estimates are based math assumptions were applied upon off-site dose readings. http://www.nirs.org/reactorwatch/accidents/tmipowerpoint.pdf

Early on in the accident, the NRC estimated that 10,000,000 Curies of radiation were released. The NRC estimate is based on a report by NRC manager, Mr. Lake Barrett. NUREG-0637, Appendix C. Barrett used time averaged plume dispersion (Chi/Q); assumed the center (highest concentration) of the plume hits the detector; and then averaged many days of releases.

Time averaged plume dispersion can be wrong on the low side by a factor of 10. Center line Chi/Q can be wrong on the low side by a factor of a 1000. Averaging the data is wrong on the low side by a factor of 3.4.

Barrett recorded the maximum curies released each day; the grand total of each day’s recording adds up to 36,062,000 curies released at TMI; yet the NRC insists that only 10,000 curies were released.

During the 1994 TMI Trial, John Daniel (industry’s expert), determined that 17,000,000 Curies were released. Industry’s own expert estimated that more radiation was released than the NRC, the guardian of public safety.

Another industry expert report by Dr. Sinovy V. Reytblatt, structural engineer from the University of Bridgeport, estimated that 8-10% of containment was released as result of the spike in pressure inside the containment. The containment had 10 billion curies – 10%= 1 billion curies.

A video below goes into depth on the cover ups and denials of any radiation leaks at Three Mile Island. In the video, an announcer claims with extra emotion and energy; “There is NO ACCIDENT. It did not occur inside the reactor, it happened OUTSIDE The reactor.. Therefor it was not an accident, just a failure of a piece of machinery outside the reactor. There is no relationship between that and what is called a nuclear accident.
No evacuation is needed.”

“Independent measurements provided evidence of radiation levels up to five times higher than normal in locations hundreds of miles downwind from TMI. According to Randall Thompson, the lead health physicist at TMI after the accident (a veteran of the US Navy nuclear submarine program and a self-confessed “nuclear geek”), radiation releases were hundreds if not thousands of times higher.

Some other insiders, including Arnie Gundersen, a former nuclear industry executive turned whistle-blower, concur; Gundersen offers evidence, based on pressure monitoring data, for a hydrogen explosion shortly before 2 p.m. on 28 March 1979, which would have provided the means for a high dose of radiation to occur for residents living downwind of the nuclear power plant.

Gundersen cites affidavits from four reactor operators according to which the plant manager was aware of a dramatic pressure spike, after which the internal pressure dropped to outside pressure. Gundersen also notes that the control room shook and doors were blown off hinges.

However, official NRC reports refer merely to a “hydrogen burn.” The Kemeny Commission referred to “a burn or an explosion that caused pressure to increase by 28 pounds per square inch in the containment building. “ 


A thorough analysis of the TMI accident indicates that releases were 100 to 1000 times higher than the NRC estimated and that the containment failed after the hydrogen detonation. (This same scenario may also now be happening at Fukushima.)

NRC and FEMA continued to use extremely low radiation release scenario even after the analysis showed much higher radiation releases happened during the accident. To this day, the regulatory bodies still say no one was killed or harmed by the radiation releases at TMI, despite all of the new evidence showing the opposite.

NRC’s mischaracterization of what was released at TMI continues to this day. For example NRC’s Senior Advisor for Emergency Preparedness Patricia Milligan’s claimed that when giving a lecture at Harvard School of Public Health, Radiological Emergency Planning: Terrorism, Security, and Communication of August 7, 2008, that when emergency plans were initially written NRC/FEMA did not know that there had been a core melt.

However now that NRC knows that there had been core melt and that our data still “shows” only a “small release” of radiation occurred, emergency plans and guidelines based on a then lack of understanding of the seriousness of the accident thereby are too conservative. The lessons learned, have not been applied to either TMI or to Fukushima and thus those lessons will also not be applied if and when a nuclear accident happens near you and your family. You should be concerned about this.

In other words, the continued mischaracterization of TMI’s releases is used to justify reducing the area in which emergency planning is necessary. They generally water down response planning and exercise scenarios. (Could this be why there was so much chaos, minimization and miscommunication during the Fukushima crisis, and non action afterwards? The plant operator knew within 8 hours of the tsunami that the plant was in meltdown, but it took many days to weeks before evacuations happened.)

Perhaps Sir Walter Scott said it best, “Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” So what effect does the TMI and Fukushima deception have on you and your family?

Bottom line, you cannot count on anyone to tell you specific information you need to protect yourself from harm from the utility, the government, the mass media (most of it owned by GE, a nuclear plant sales organization) and certainly not the regulators, who seem to act more like a marketing agency than someone protecting the public. Even the Emergency Management Agencies that are supposedly neutral, seem to have been coopted, because they promise to provide specific information after an accident, but then never do, at least not in time to make a difference.

Bottom line, you are on your own. You will not get any radiation readings, and if you do get any, you probably cannot trust them, because they will NOT be taken downwind, which is where it really counts. Because all you get is general information, which says nothing, there is no information provided on whether you should evacuate or not, much less which direction to go in.

If you do not have a Geiger Counter, you are at the mercy of these bafflegab merchants who run their organizations like a fiefdom that does not have to tell anyone anything, certainly not in a timely manner, even in event of an emergency.
