Fukushima Sixth Anniversary and the conflicting Information surrounding It

Tomorrow is going to be sixth anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan that lead to the nuclear disaster in Fukushima. I already wrote about this two months ago and questioned what we are being told about radiation.

 

Conflicting Information

The information we’ve received about Fukushima is fairly conflicting in my opinion. The Dai-ichi plant is supposedly still leaking radiation and has been doing so for five years, yet we haven’t seen any grand scale environmental disaster or health problems due to it. Certainly the Japanese government and media suppressed some information relating to Fukushima, and there have been reports of health issues in some Japanese people, mutated vegetables and other alarming, yet not obviously disastrous issues. When the Fukushima disaster occurred, I was expecting tons of obvious health issues, mutations and whatnot to occur in Japan. Something so drastic that it cannot be covered up. Yet life in most parts of Japan goes on as normal.

In my opinion there is a great deal we are not being told. Either about Fukushima itself or about nuclear power. Just last month Fox News reported that the radiation level are at “unimaginable” levels, and the “highest they’ve been since 2011 when a tsunami hit the coastal reactor”. I’ve been seeing reports like this every now and then since 2011. It seems to me that either the reports are wrong, or that radiation isn’t as harmful as we’ve been lead to believe. There have also been several claims over the years that Tokyo should not be inhabited anymore or that it will become uninhabited in X years.

On the other hand, plenty of main stream media outlets are saying that radiation from Fukushima is not a big deal.

I don’t know what is going on, except that the information we are getting is contradictory. Therefore I will propose a few different possibilities for what is going on. Some of them are more fringe than others.

 

Theories on what is going on

One possibility is as I suggested in my previous article, “How do we know that Radioactivity is actually harmful?”, that maybe radiation really is not as harmful as they claim. It might even have beneficial qualities to it. I should remind of the late nuclear engineer, Galen Winsor, who claimed that uranium is not harmful. He even ate some of it in front of a video camera. Maybe he was lying, maybe he was a fraud but he seems credible to me, and suggest seeing some of his videos on Youtube.

Another possibility on Fukushima is that maybe Tepco actually managed to clean up most of the damage caused by the nuclear accident, and the reports in the media that claim the reactor is still leaking are disinformation to cause fear or for other reasons. Alternatively, maybe someone or something else had cleaned site. Perhaps nature has an effective method of diluting the harmful effects of nuclear waste and radiation. Or maybe it was friendly aliens. I don’t find this a credible possibility, but it is still a possibility.

Then again, maybe all we’ve been told about nuclear power is a lie. Maybe they never even split the atom, and atom bombs and nuclear power plants use a different kind of technology that we haven’t been told of. I recall reading about a conspiracy theory on the internet long time ago that claims atom bombs are a hoax. It has resurfaced recently. Even back then I thought the claim is so far off I don’t think anyone would make it up just for the purposes of disinformation. It probably has some truth to it. If this is true, then nuclear power plants probably produce electricity through a method other than nuclear fission.

 

Conclusion

I don’t know what is going on with Fukushima and nuclear power in general, but if it is not as bad as it seems, it’s good news. Maybe Japan’s environment wasn’t as devastated as I and many others thought by the disaster. The effects of radiation could be more subtle, though, and only manifest in a very obvious way only after years. However, it seems to me we are not getting the whole story. On one side the media is saying, it’s nothing, don’t worry about it, and on the other they are saying that it’s still leaking and the radiation levels are getting worse.
