What do Ann Coulter and Barrack Obama have in common? Pay attention (video link), Ann Coulter uses the phrase, "the minimum amount of radiation, * you should be exposed to *. Ann Coulter's assertion that nuclear radiation is like a health suntan is insane. Here is what Japan now looks like, atomically speaking. The Obama administration Fukushima cover-up is known as Plumegate cover-up (primarily leaked on Intellihub).
Ann Coulter's not-so-subtle slip of the tongue as if implied one has a minimum daily dose needed for radiation, as one does for Vitamin C. The West Coast of the US received Radioactive Iodine Fukushima, but the government forgot to mention radioactive Strontium 90 and Cesium 137. Any dosage of radiation is a cumulative cancer antagonist. Who do you trust more, Ann Coulter or Helen Caldicott? Do you trust Barrack Obama with the nuke industry or Dr. Doug Rokke; Monsanto Lawyer Hillary Clinton or Nuclear Expert/Physician Dr. Helen Caldicott? Helen Caldicott has actually treated radiation victims.
Mining is just the first step, and then there is Uranium milling, more carbon from conventional power plants, and one more filthy, toxic nuclear HAZMAT site in need of decontamination. Nuke industry apologists use words like clean, safe and cheap , ignoring dirty, killer or Wake Up and When the Dust Settles by David Bradbury.
The USA is storing 57,634 Depleted Uranium Hexafluoride Casks containing 28,000 pounds of Depleted Uranium Hexafluoride each -- 1,613,752,000 pounds of highly lethal atomic waste. Where's the clean?
The photo above is only a portion of America's nuclear waste; is it what Billo and Ann Coulter imply that the government is depriving us of, our "healthy share quota', as if it is a vitamin, rather than a carcinogen? Obama, Billo and Coulter are all pro-nuke industry -- who was paid and/or promised what?
"President Obama's fiscal year 2012 budget outlines a plan for reviving the country's nuclear power industry, calling for $36 billion in government-backed loan guarantees for new nuclear reactors and setting aside more than $800 million for nuclear energy research". Plumegate had and has motive.
The New York Times, which is only a stones throw physically from Wall Street, regularly publishes pieces such as this: Pro-Big-Nuke letter. The New York Times will headline articles with pro-nuke jargon such as, "Despite Protests, Waste Arrives in Germany - The New York Times". Not a whisper about 19 February 2013 rain and snow in California, 506% more radioactive than background. Expect Google, yahoo and Bing to blacklist web pages about nuclear rain in California. Expect many so-called alt news sites to censor 506% more radioactive than background rain. California nuclear-contaminated milk, corn or beef, anyone?

USA nuclear spent fuel dry cask (probably containing spent fuel) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y93riMwoa6M .
Concrete dry casks (empty in this case) for nuclear spent fuel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBaEXiQajw8 .
This train video contains two DODX (Dept of Defense) nuclear casks being moved: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TPod_0l7bY .
Imagine this US train derailing near your home and spilling four canisters of MOX fuel rods... Go to time frame 2:30, four Uranium dry casks filled with reactor ‘spent’ rods, spent meaning hotter and more dangerously radioactive than ‘fresh’ fuel rods. The oxymoron of clean nuclear is waste: mining and milling Superfund sites, trainloads of waste, reactor pools and dry concrete casks of 4.6 billion year waste – essentially forever poison.
Do you live within kill zone of derailed nuclear waste or a reactor meltdown? A nuclear train derailment will give new meaning to the misnomer "clean nuclear'. The nuclear power plants are aging past their intended life spans; "new' nuke plants are not a new car that can be replaced every two years; obsolescence is part of the design. Nuke plants, by their very nature, outlive their newness and operate in a long period of obsolescence, cracked pipes, leaks, etc.
The government guarantees loans banks would not touch with a 20-ft-pole, contractors build a facility that is generally flawed with both design and contraction flaws. Massive amounts of fuel and electricity are consumed to build fuel assemblies that will not cool off and become non-toxic for billions upon billions of years. What are Obama's grandchildren and great, great grandchildren going to do with nuke waste that is worse than useless -- a silent killer than lasts for eternity. Free market capitalism, replete with taxpayer sponsorship and deadly eternal waste.
The apologists always use the same buzzwords: safe, clean, abundant, affordable nuke. They always ignore the same issues: ultra-deadly, outlasts the scale of hundreds of generations, small amount of energy produced, super abundant amounts of scorched earth and undisosable waste, accident prone and unforeseeable exigent circumstances nuke.
Perhaps Ann Coulter and Barrack Obama need to have lunch and read the Greenpeace report on Chernobyl Cancers/Deaths . American news often refuses to use terms like the UK Guardians term, "triple meltdown". American media has been largely apologist, with emphasis on radioactive Iodine (which dissipates rapidly) and little emphasis on any or all of the following: US, Japanese and worldwide nuclear plants venting radioactive Tritium, lung cancers in American and Australian Uranium miners, cancers of all who handle Depleted Uranium "penetrator" weapons (including the victims overseas and NATO troops), Uranium, Plutonium, Cesium and Strontium isotopes. The entire list is dismissed with an intended lie, the oxymoron misnomer "natural background".
Long-term health issues from Cesium 137 and Strontium 90 levels in Japan, in the Pacific Ocean and in the US West Coast are going to kill for essentially infinite generations. Such issues are relegated to apologist terms such as "natural background" radiation.
(Audio, links) George Bush / Barrack Obama safe, clean nuclear:
Media journalist Karl Grossman audio clip of how the government and nuke industry have managed both nuclear history and Fukushima (largely with silence) and manipulated public opinion since the first Trinity tests of the first atomic bomb. Grossman is a veteran journalist who probably knows more about the nuclear bomb and 4.6 billion year HAZMAT waste industry than anyone.

This is what clean nuclear really means - if you cannot get paid to blow up the world, anymore, you charge even more to merely boil water - with some of the most deadly substances ever invented... MOX next-generation death, to go with former generation bomb-death.
The government and media do not talk or write about Cesium 137 and Strontium 90 fallout from Fukushima. We were and still are lied to about every aspect of nuclear energy, weapons, hazardous wastes and mismanagement of all things nuclear. Clean, cheap and green nuclear are lies meant to fool all but those most well read on the poisoning of posterity.
The Karl Grossman (award winning anti-nuke journalist) radio interview in the links above tells us from before the first atom bomb (Trinity) to Fukushima, we have been lied to my the news media. This Intellihub article tell us the Japanese government is allowing radioactive HAZMAT to be dumped in rivers. Domestically, American reactors 40+ years old are having the heat turned up to make more steam in weakened, aging tanks and pipes – a risk taken purely for greed.
There are cancer clusters around all of America’s reactors. Any US cancer cluster map and any nuclear power plant map overlay each other nearly perfectly – with the nuke plant close to center of cancer clusters.
Japan built 50 nuke reactors on seismically active volcanic islands; much of the USA did the same. In Grossman’s words, this is the most dangerous method conceivable for boiling water. GE, Westinghouse, Toshiba and Hitachi wish to expand their news media empire and their nuke power plant empire. Anyone who knows all the facts would oppose nuclear expansion; but the nuke expanders own the news, so few know the facts.
Michael Chossudovsky wrote, “Fukushima, A Nuclear War without a War”. Enenews.com reports, “Over 200,000 Bq/kg of radioactive cesium in dust from outside Fukushima Prefecture”. For the visually oriented, the naturalnews map of Pacific Ocean Radiation is more newsworthy than 24-hour news cycles that relegate 30—plus-years half-lives of Cesium and Strontium to “old news”. It is only “old news” to those not eating radioactive tuna or breathing in 5-micron-sized pieces of Cesium dust in Hawaii, Japan, Alaska or Washington State. The public perception of Fukushima old news is in reality one-million new cancer deaths, probably more like 4-5 million new cancer deaths from 2012 through 2052 - over and above "normal" mortality. Governments have become skilled at hiding such truths. If one includes Pacific Ocean dietary foods and irradiated crops into the equation, the said numbers are probably extremely conservative.
Photo courtesy of worldlifeexpectancy.com. Most cancer clusters have nuclear mining, milling, uranium metals / fuel and/or weapons fabrication, or a power plant in or adjacent to the cancer clusters. Yes, admittedly fracking and oil refining are often in or adjacent to the same clusters. This is what all of these money-rackers refer to as "your lifestyle" and "your defective genes". Public Relations/Marketing Gurus and the media work hard to depict activists and environmentalists as "water-dousers" or witch/warlock types. It is your death, go ahead and sit at home while Belgians, Germans and French organize protests and engage in civil disobedience.
The nuke-owned-news will call it “lifestyle cancer”; but the deaths are GE, Westinghouse, Toshiba and Hitachi “nuclear” style deaths.
Here is what the US news is not telling you about Fukushima Number 4 and Plumegate (the cover up of the triple nuclear meltdowns and possibly pending release/meltdown of Reactor 3 Mox and possibly pending release/meltdown of Reactor 4 spent fuel. Arnie Gunderson was quoted in articles, inferring possibly 2.89 billion (estimated) people could be at risk. The nuke/news-owner public relations crowd went to work libeling Gunderson. The John F. Kennedy/Barrack Obama Plumegate speech sums up the government's abuse of America's people extremely well. Nuke-owned 24-hour news cyclic making death safe ad worry free. Was Gunderson’s 2.89 billion (estimated) humans at nuclear risk via Fukushima a typo, misquote, hoax or possibly Gunderson thinking out loud and quoted online?
We actually have both enough nuke bombs and nuke water-boiling electricity generation plants to wipe all human life off of the planet. Fukushima and Chernobyl are referred to as disasters, accidents and unusual events. Plumegate, the cover-up of the 2.89 billion (estimated) humans threatened was ridiculed, with blog editors either paid or threatened into silent compliance.
If the quote is truly attributable to Gunderson, it is closer to the truth than Obama's notorious Plumegate speech: psychopaths put radioactivity atop fault lines, behind tidal flood walls in Tsunami areas, adjacent to volcanoes and in the path of hurricanes in the USA and all over volcanic, overpopulated Japan.
Book-burning Propagandist Joseph Goebbel would have been proud of the amelioration of common sense and knowledge, of the danger of highly destructive, rapidly-breaking down isotopes; aka so-called ‘clean, green, safe’ Cesium 137 and Strontium 90. The nuclear isotopes most likely to kill 2.89 billion (estimated) humans are now mislabeled “cheap electricity” and “clean nuclear”.
Reich propaganda minister Goebbel would have laughed out loud at Plutonium MOX fuel verbally/textually referred to as next generation clean nuclear. Clean, green, safe MOX Plutonium. The American public 2011-2013 are the human guinea pigs of Japan and America’s latest Tsar Bomba.
Some do not see the similarity between the entities above (and the US Pentagon) burning down web pages and alt news blogs and Goebbel burning books.
The scariest thing about Plumegate is how censored it is in all forms of media; one could easily think Plumegate does not exist.- end of article, more on danger of media / Tepco / governments' censorship below:

Safecast: DIY and citizen-sensing of radiation
Empowering citizen in the wake of Fukushima triple-meltdown disaster
The triple meltdown of the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant in March last year and the release of radioactive material that has ensued have left a good part of Northern Japan contaminated with unknown amount of radioactivity. An outstanding lack of transparency from both the government and the power utility then resulted in a near total lack of information concerning the levels of radiation in the, yet unknown, contaminated areas. As a response, concerned citizen have started to take upon themselves this challenging task. However it quickly became clear that handheld measurements wouldn't scale up to the full magnitude of the area to cover. New means of measuring radiation accurately, quickly and cheaply were needed.
We present the design of an affordable mobile radiation sensor system for independent citizen monitoring and cartography of radioactive contamination. Historically radiation measurements has had a high entry barrier for technical, financial, and political reasons. We show how the tremendous advances in information technology have been a game changer in this field. Notably, we leverage the open-source software and hardware paradigm to dramatically accelerate the development and deployment time of the system. Our design methodology allowed to prototype and deploy the system in one month following the Fukushima disaster. Our sensors have been since driven by volunteers, covering most of North-East Japan with a fine spatial resolution.
Safecast is a volunteer based organization created in the early days following the triple meltdown accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in 2012. Its goal is to give independent information concerning the radiation levels, first in Japan, but then globally.
Early on, we realized that in most places radiation measurements are simply not done, so we decided to collect this data ourselves. Volunteers from Tokyo Hackerspace used tools from the DIY revolution (Arduino, cheap PCB fab, laser cutters, ...) to create a versatile mobile radiation measurement device called a bento-Geiger counter, nicknamed bGeigie , a lunchbox sized contraption that is fixed on a car and collect geo-tagged radiation data as the car moves.
Using this system (of which we have around 50 units by now), we were able to cover most of Japan, but also other places world wide, such as Hong Kong, Seoul, California, etc. The devices are driven around by volunteers in the Fukushima area during their daily activities.
This lecture will present first how this organization was born from a discussion on social networks, and how these networks allowed talented people to come on-board quickly. Then the bGeigie system will be presented to show how it could be replicated at home. Finally the result of our survey of radiation in Japan and the maps resulting will be shown.
Hundreds of ordinary people are contributing to a crowdsourced effort to measure Fukushima's impact.As for measurement of radioactivity, as I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, it is (thankfully) relatively very easy to measure.
Hundreds of ordinary people are contributing to a crowd-sourced effort to measure Fukushima's impact. Document Actions. Tweet.
Published on August 16th, 2011 | by Joshua S Hill. 3. First Measurements of Leakage from Fukushima Reactor.In fact, it took sensitive instruments, measuring radioactive decay for hours after lengthy collection of the particles, to precisely measure the amount of radiation,” Thiemens said.
Tokyo Electric Power Co. has withheld 140 measurements of radioactive strontium levels taken in groundwater and the port of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant between June and November last year.
Readings of tritium in seawater taken from the bay near the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant has shown 4700 becquerels per liter, a TEPCO report stated, according to Nikkei newspaper. It marks the highest tritium level in the measurement history.
After the tsunami and explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant in 2011, radiation instantly became, once again, a watchword stuck to the back of our collectiveI think we can use all of this to focus the measurement gathering and dissemination of information in ways that have never before been ...
As I reported yesterday, the IAEA radiation monitoring team took measurements at distances from 56 to 200 km from the Fukushima nuclear power plant. At two locations in Fukushima Prefecture gamma dose rate and beta-gamma contamination measurements have been repeated.
Talk about DOUBLE TALK! You have GOT to see this double talk "update" in the first segment. Yes, Japanese government will help nuclear plants close, but they will Also help them continue operating.
I think we owe it to the public to make those measurements and I think it’s a pity our government hasn’t taken this on directly.”They measure the levels of cesium-134, which has a short half-life—half of it decays every two years. The sole source of cesium-134 in the ocean is from Fukushima.
