Fukushima’s political fallout puts anti-nuke researcher on trial
by Yoichi Shimatsu
Dana Durnford, a former commercial diver who plies a rubber dinghy along the Canadian Pacific coast to study the effects of Fukushima radiation on marine life, has been arrested for making alleged death threats against a chemistry professor at University of Victoria in British Columbia. Mr. Durnford is facing trial on two counts of harassment related to his comments on video at his webpage, the Nuclear Proctologist. The video clips in question have been removed by YouTube at the request of unnamed complainants.
Whatever the substance those controversial statements, Canadians should realize his frustration arises in response to the official campaign of denial of Fukushima’s lethal effects. I have often enjoyed dialogues with Dana on the rense.com radio program on Monday nights, especially stories of his harrowing experiences at sea amid 15-foot swells. After a career of diving for shellfish, he developed a passion for coastal research two years ago after discovering that the once-lush seafloor and tidal pools of British Columbia have been denuded of vegetation and are now devoid of marine-animal life. A burning curiosity prompted him to obtain geiger counters, a microscope and underwater cameras to search for the root cause of this unprecedented natural catastrophe along North America’s Pacific coast,
Durnford has an encyclopedic recall for identifying marine species that few marine biologists can equal. His estimate, four years after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, is that out of more than 2,000 coastal species only about 200 still survive. The absence of any other plausible cause prompted his conclusion that low-level radiation from Fukushima arriving in immense volumes is responsible for the greatest extermination event in human history. His field research shows that the ongoing ecocide of the Pacific is a man-made catastrophe and not a natural disaster, and the nuclear industry bears the entire culpability. For his tireless campaign of gathering a vast body of smoking-gun evidence, Durnford is being persecuted in a modern-day witch trial by the high priests of the nuclear industry.
Durnford stands accused on trumped-up charges of a “hate crime” against those marine chemists who categorically deny radiation as a potential factor in the oceanic kill-off, a priori, that is even before they start to gather data from the shore. As quoted in the Globe and Mail, Durnford said, “in court I was charged with criminal harassment of nuclear industry PR people, and one of those was from Woods Hole and the other one was from UVic, British Columbia, Canada.”
Correction: Durnford is not aware of the fact, and probably neither are the students at University of Victoria, that one of his accusers, Professor Jay Cullen, served as a postdoctoral researcher at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, which throughout its history has been an “ocean environment” research front funded by the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research.
“Zero risk” from Fukushima
To be fair, as far as possible when presented with transparent scientific fraud, let us now pay attention to the opinions of the main “victim” of this alleged heinous murder plot.

Could Japan’s Fukushima Radiation be Mutating Vegetables?
by Christina Sarich
Aug 23, 2014
An artist that lives in the northern portion of the Mie Prefecture, in Western Japan (but still within Fukushima’s radiation-circle) has posted pictures on Pinterest of some very outlandish looking carrots that he dug up from his own garden.
The poster simply comments, “The carrots that grew in my garden look too abnormal this year . . .”
Some refute the ‘mutant fruits and vegetable’ pictures popping up on different Internet sites, stating that they are a hoax, and others are insistent that the pictures they are posting are real. There have been mutant cabbages, 4 times the normal size, and tomatoes that seem to have exploded, but is this all sensationalized news, or something we should really be concerned about?

Doubts Over Ice Wall To Keep Fukushima Safe From Damaged Nuclear Reactors
Jul 13, 2014
via The Guardian / July 14, 2014 / In fading light and just a stone’s throw from the most terrifying scenes during Japan’s worst nuclear accident, engineers resumed their race against time to defeat the next big threat: thousands of tonnes of irradiated water.
If all goes to plan, by next March Fukushima Daiichi’s four damaged reactors will be surrounded by an underground frozen wall that will be a barrier between highly toxic water used to cool melted fuel inside reactor basements and clean groundwater flowing in from surrounding hills.
Up to 400 tonnes of groundwater that flows into the basements each day must be pumped out, stored and treated – and on-site storage is edging closer to capacity. Decommissioning the plant will be impossible until its operator, Tokyo Electric Power [TEPCO] addresses the water crisis.
Last month workers from TEPCO and the construction firm Kajima Corp began inserting 1,550 pipes 33 metres vertically into the ground to form a rectangular cordon around the reactors. Coolant set at -30C will be fed into the pipes, eventually freezing the surrounding earth to create an impermeable barrier.
“We started work a month ago and have installed more than 100 pipes, so it is all going according to plan to meet our deadline,” Tadafumi Asamura, a Kajima manager who is supervising the ice wall construction, said as workers braved rain, humidity and radiation to bore holes in the ground outside reactor No 4, scene of one of three hydrogen explosions at the plant in the early days of the crisis.
But sealing off the four reactors – three of which melted down in the March 2011 disaster – is costly and not without risks. The 32bn-yen (£185m) wall will be built with technology that has never been used on such a large scale.
“I’m not convinced the freeze wall is the best option,” Dale Klein, former head of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission and a senior adviser to TEPCO, recently told Kyodo News. “What I’m concerned about is unintended consequences. Where does that water go and what are the consequences of that? I think they need more testing and more analysis.”
The 1,500-metre wall will stay in use until 2020, using enough electricity every year to power 13,000 households, according to officials.
Over the next eight months, 360 workers from TEPCO and Kajima will work in rotating shifts of up to four hours a day, with each shift beginning in the early evening to combat heat exhaustion. Each worker is wrapped in hazardous materials suits and full-face masks, along with tungsten-lined rubber torso bibs for added protection against radiation.
TEPCO’s record of mishaps in the three years since Fukushima Daiichi suffered a triple meltdown suggests the wall project will not be trouble free. The firm has had problems freezing irradiated water – using the same method being used to build the underground wall – that has accumulated in underground trenches, raising concerns that the ice technology is flawed.

Underground ice wall to contain Fukushima leaks gets official approval
May 27, 2014
Japanese authorities gave the go-ahead yesterday to the construction of an underground ice wall around the nuclear reactors of the crippled Fukushima plant in attempt to slow down the build-up of radioactive water. Experts are still questioning whether giant ice wall will actually work.
The Nuclear Regulation Authority has approved the project after dismissing the idea that it could have a significant negative impact on subterranean watercourses and on the stability of the subsoil under the plant. “Today we confirmed that the possible scale of ground sinkage will not be significant, and that was the secondary effect we feared most from building the wall,” Toyoshi Fuketa, one of the experts of the authority, said. (GP)
The construction of 1.5 km long ice wall that will surround reactors 1 to 4 will begin in June 2014.
A series of thin pipelines will be inserted at a depth of 30 m, some 20 – 40 m apart, through which a coolant with a temperature of minus 40 degrees will be injected. This is expected to act as a physical barrier between groundwater and contaminated water.
Typhoon, Flood and Mudslide Warnings Issued For Fukushima Region
As TEPCO and the Japanese government finally admit that the problem at Fukushima is “Out of Control”, another large natural disaster is on its way.
By JG Vibes
September 16, 2013
Just weeks ago a TEPCO official declared a state of emergency at Fukuhima, saying that things could become worse than ever at the plant.
Over the years since the disaster initially occurred there have been mixed signals from the governments of the world and their affiliated scientific organizations. However most independent investigations have shown that things are far more serious than the media has been telling the public.
Additionally, recent radiation readings at and around the site suggest that radiation levels are actually rising. In the midst of this crisis, the Fukushima region is experiencing another natural disaster.
A typhoon just reached the shore near Fukushima this morning, and is predicted to cause deeper complications to the contaminated water in the area.
ABC News reported that “TEPCO workers at the plant are battening down the site as the typhoon approaches. They have attached ropes to outdoor piping and pumps, and are using large weights to try to prevent cranes from possibly toppling over. With torrential rains expected this afternoon, there are fears that more contaminated water will seep into the groundwater and flow into the sea.”
According to The Australian “the typhoon made landfall this morning in Toyohashi, Aichi prefecture, packing gusts of up to 162km/h, the Japan Meteorological Agency said….The typhoon, moving north-northeast at a speed of 45km/h, is expected to head towards the capital and its surrounding region later today, the agency says…. The agency issued the highest alert for “possibly unprecedented heavy rain” in Kyoto and its adjacent prefectures, warning residents in danger zones to evacuate to shelters.”
Throughout the whole entire meltdown process TEPCO and the Japanese government have downplayed the environmental impact of the Fukushima disaster.
One politician was even arrogant enough to drink radioactive water, in a desperate move to save credibility for the government.
All parties involved behind the scenes are remaining completely silent, although the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission (NAIIC) has already concluded that the nuclear disaster at Fukushima was “a profoundly man-made disaster that could and should have been foreseen and prevented.”
In contrast to the official reports coming from the government and the power company, test after test has shown that the meltdown has had a significant impact on the surrounding area.
