This is Definitely a Huge Problem!

And we're not hearing anything about these developments from the MSM. Check out this piece by Christina Consolo who is a former researcher with the NIH:

"Thirteen months have passed since the Fukushima reactors exploded, and a U.S. Senator finally got off his ass and went to Japan to see what is going on over there.

What he saw was horrific.

And now he is saying that we are in big trouble.

See the letter he sent to U.S. Ambassador to Japan Ichiro Fujisaki, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and NRC’s Chairman Gregory Jaczko here.

But what is so ironic about this is that we have been in this heap of trouble since March of 2011. March 17th, to be exact, when the plume of radioactive materials began bombarding the west coast of California.
And Oregon. And Washington. And British Columbia. And later Maine, Europe, and everywhere in between. Independent researchers, nuke experts, and scientists, from oceanography to entomology and everywhere in between, having been trying to sound the alarm ever since.

The scientists most upset are those who have studied the effects of radiation on health. I’ll say it again, so its really clear: we are in big trouble.

The most preliminary reports of soil contamination are starting to come in from the USGS, who has seemed reluctant to share this information. Los Angeles, California, Portland, Oregon, and Boulder, Colorado, so far have the highest radioactive particle contamination out of the entire US.

That being said, every single city tested across the country showed contamination from Fukushima. What is even more alarming, however, about the numbers coming in, is that they are from samples taken April 5th, of last year.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, has only recently confirmed that there were three meltdowns, and they have been ongoing, unabated, for thirteen months, and no effort has been made to contain them...."   More here.

You can't see it, smell it, taste it or hear it...but you can touch it. Or, more accurately, it can touch you. This may be the crisis event of the fourth turning.

If Dr. Caldicott truly decides to abandon her American home and return to Australia permanently, it's a sure bet we're doomed.

Just a little levity before I go completely bonkers!

Going bonkers may be frowned upon, but still okay; going completely bonkers may be prohibited. Check your local statutes and know your limitations... ;-)

We're certainly on our way to hell in a handbasket.

Not to worry, JG.
I have a papal dispensation, a get-out-of-jail-free card, a receipt for a buck 98 given to a local Republican Candidate, an I Heart Cops bumper sticker, a slightly singed draft card (goes with a donated burned bra)and a gas ration card from the 70s!

And...I'm feeling MUCH better!!!!
