U.S. Army General: The Whole Northern Hemisphere is at Risk of Becoming Largely Uninhabitable
SHTFplan ^ | 25th May, 2012 | Mac Slavo

Posted on 05/26/2012 12:27:27 AM PDT by yank in the UK

It’s estimated that tens of thousands of people in Japan and the whole of North America have been affected, with reports indicating that children in Japan and the U.S. are already being born with birth defects, as well as thousands who have already succumbed to radiation related illness. As we initially followed the breaking news during the first thirty days of the accident, we suggested the Fukushima disaster would be worse than Chernobyl. Not even we could have imagined how much worse it would be.

This is emotionally damaging. I need as many of my fellow FReepers to remind me that this is all just a bunch of overblown hype, and that everything is going to be alright, and that there is nothing wrong.

This is absolute bunk. The radiation levels are high by Japanese standards, but there were very low to begin with. Colorado and Rome both have higher radiation levels than all but the immediate vicinity around the plant at Fukushima.

More bozos getting their rocks off on trying to get people to run around screaming.

There is more foolish from the loony left. Even Chernobyl only killed a handful of people and there were no long term side effects.
No mention in the article mentioning what they are talking about. How much radiation, what is the half life. Where is the proof?
There is background radiation and the stuff from Japan falls well with in it. Besides they have found that a little radiation is actually good for you.

I have degrees in natural science and radiologic technology and more than 3 decades working in the field of radiology.

I am TOTALLY unconcerned about the risks to myself and my
family from the events in Fukushima. People here are far far far far far more likely to die in a car accident than
to suffer any negative physical effects from this incident.

Now, now! No pills are necessary.

Tens of thousands of people here in the U.S. have not died from radiation pouring out of Fukushima, as the writer of this boilerplate insists.

If you’re really that concerned, I suggest you purchase your own dosimeter. Here’s link:

http://www.freshwatersystems.com/p-6263-mirion-sorrf-lcd-radiation-detector-dosimeter.aspx?affiliateid=10051&utm_source=pricegrabber&utm_medium=Feed&utm_campaign=Product&utm_term=SOR/RF

This little device will allow to see how much radiation exposure you experience. Maybe you’ll feel better.

Hype.
More than 1000 atomic weapons were detonated just 65 miles outside of Las Vegas and it is inhabitable.
People used to watch the mushroom clouds from hotel balconies and windows.
That is more and dirtier megatonnage than the combined nuclear arsenals of India, Pakistan and North Korea.

An atomic bomb was set off right inside of Hiroshima, yet more than 5 million people live there today.

Come on now. Do you think our great President Barack Obama would put a clamp down on information this devastating ? No way. And Hillary Clinton ? Heck. She even flew to Japan. And nothing at all happened to her. She looks just as good as ever.

Seriously, there is a lot of speculation in that article. This event has the possibility in a worse case scenario of becoming very bad. But that would require another major quake. There are numerous unanswered questions that we are trying to get Tepco/Japan to answer, however. As a precaution, just do some prepping. Nothing bad can come from prepping. My 2cents.

I just checked out Ebay - they have lots of dosimeters for sale, and at much lower prices than the link I supplied.

This is no joke. If you are truly concerned about your safety, the price for one of these is small and can bring you peace of mind.

I remember my parents telling me that the northern hemisphere had become uninhabitable after WWII and all the above ground testing that had gone on, and that they had migrated, as all good Irish people do, from Tierra del Fuego.

They said it was rich with opportunities. But, I digress.

You remember my telling you yesterday that I eat oysters out of Willapa Bay, on the southern coast of Washington State?

I think it would be wise for me to get one of those hand-held portable dosimeters and check the oysters out before consumption. (I suspect the Feds are already doing that, but who really knows?)

Some of the dosimeters being sold on Ebay are like those I operated while working at the Trojan Nuclear Plant twenty years ago. My nephew wants one and we’ll probably get one.

If you are being serious about the meter, would recommend one in the future just because the current DC establishment has been hell bent on proliferating nuclear technology all over the planet. Iran has nuclear power plants. And they are at about 30 to 35 degrees north latitude. Then of course there is the possibility that Israel might have to resort to nuclear weapons in its upcoming war with Iran. And I believe the Israelis have some really big ones. Then of course, we have North Korea, Pakistan and the rest of the middle east pursuing nuclear power. So, more nuclear accidents and additional nuclear wars are as certain as the sun rising.

Correct, radiation does have benefits.

We live within about 2 miles of a nuclear generation plant and find our electric bills about half of what can be expected for a home the size of ours.

Since everything in the house glows in the dark we almost never need to turn on the lights.

Spent fuel rods causing cataclysmic explosions? An interwoven set of exaggerated theories based on “current estimates” that have been pulled from a radio show website and the opinions of a retired, utterly unqualified, Army General (also a 9-11 truther?) Well, I’m just sayin,’ I’m not skipping lunch to go out and buy iodine.

The radiation in the atmosphere disperses. After it crosses the ocean, it is so dispersed that you’d be getting probably less then 1/1,000 of what the average Japanese is getting and they aren’t dying at a greater rate than they were before Fukishima.

Here's all you need to know to sleep well at night, again: In Japan, there were two uncontained and purposed fission nuclear detonations. Within years, people lived right near ground zero with minimal effects.

This is just more green propaganda Fracking from the totalitarian wing of the International Green Partay.

The Sky is falling, the sky is falling! Give us a federal grant! Buahahahahaha!

My son lives in Japan, has two children, a Japanese wife and a very sensitive Geiger Counter I had sent him within a month after the Fukashima/Tsunami.

For those wishing to debunk, I can tell you that my son and his family would be the first on the plane back to the states IF there was a radiation problem, to protect his two young boys, 3 and 1.5 years old. He is in a tenure track position at an Advanced Institute of Technology, which has monitored radiation in the environment for a generation and more as a matter of continuing graduate studies. There is no problem as described in this thread article.

The only places there is a problem is in the Fukashima Area, and they continue to contain any spread of the problem by restricting the exit of anything from the effected areas, including food stuffs, used cars, steel and the like.

The Greenies just have a death wish to glow in the dark for a few seconds before they run screaming en mass over a cliff like so many lemmings.That is the mind set of most green weenies who seek totalitarian remedies with every created crisis.

A pox on all these Greenies, they are a curse upon the face
of the earth, worse than a persistent zit on the a$$ of a retired harlot who never bathes, and nobody really cares about her any more.

Thank you (and everyone else) for the post. I feel a bit better now. I’m not a doom and gloom monger, but when I read news stories like these, I get a bit depressed. The one thing that bothers me the most is that all the MSM networks are not reporting any of this, it’s as if it never happened, that worries me more then if they were on the nightly news every night telling us we were all going to die of radiation exposure. I’ve always been a believer of, it’s not what they tell you, it’s what they DON’T tell you that matters.

The MSM is nothing but a propaganda machine. Every piece they report skews facts based on current political correctness. The truth needs to be maleable, you see.

Why even bother listening or watching the MSM? I shot my TV in 2000, literally, and get all of my news from web sources
that are truthful.

If there WAS a fallout problem, the MSM would politicize the matter to the point that people would be committing suicide. They are panic mongers, war mongers, rascist mongers, sex mongers....PIMPS.

Why get your news from a pimp? They wouldn’t know the truth even if they fell over it.

"the price for one of these [dosimeters] is small and can bring you peace of mind."

The problem is that dosimeters only measure measurable radiation. The author seems to be worried about immeasurable phantom radiation.
