Japan’s Radioactive Potemkin Village: The Government’s Double-Dealing Data
Richard Wilcox, PhDActivist Post
The plane to Lisbon, you would like to be on it. Why, what’s in Lisbon? To get back to America. I’ve often speculated why you don’t return to America. Did you abscond with the church funds? Did you run off with the Senator’s wife? I like to think that you killed a man, it’s the romantic in me. It’s a combination of all three. And what in Heaven’s name brought you to Casablanca? My health, I came to Casablanca for the waters. The waters? What waters? We’re in the desert. I was misinformed. – Reins & Bogart, Casablanca (1942)
I stand to be corrected but what I recently witnessed first hand and face to face in the city of Nihonmatsu can be interpreted as nothing other than scientific fraud and blatant misrepresentation of the facts on the part of the Japanese government regarding gamma radiation levels, leading to the early deaths of tens of thousands of residents (1). I visited a large nuclear refugee camp in a beautiful location near Nihonmatsu, a modest sized city just outside the evacuation zone of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant No. 1 (FNPP#1) disaster site (2).
Nihonmatsu is a typical mid-sized city in the near region of the FNPP#1 that was heavily doused with radiation from the triple meltdowns that occurred in March of 2011. Due to wind direction, the southern side of the plant did not receive nearly as much as in the northwest (3). Last summer I traveled within just a few kilometers of the FNPP#1 from the south, but readings never exceeded 0.5 microsieverts per hour (mcr sv pr hr). (Consider that 0.1 mcr sv pr hr is roughly an average dose received by a person in a normal environment).
0.5 mcr sv pr hr is an unsettlingly high dose but not nearly as high as what I experienced in Nihonmatsu where the average dose is over 2 mcr pr hr. Depending on how long one spends out of doors (farmers and children at play), that is as high as 19 millisieverts per year, barely under the official limit of 20 per year. Previous to the 3/11 nuclear disaster the Japanese government set the safe limit of exposure for the public at one millisievert per year.

Like an angrier, less insightful version of Peter Schiff. The host could benefit from speech coaching. Hard to listen to.
Zero Hedge is not reliable source... Too much partition politics...
I bet u trade based on Zero Hedge Stories... World collapsing tomorrow and S&P going zero in upcoming apacolypt... Good luck
