Chromium-6
(NaturalNews) An Environmental Working Group review of government water analysis data reveals that 75% of drinking water in America is contaminated with cancer-causing hexavalent chromium (also known as chromium-6). In a widely publicized report, EWG warns that 200 million Americans are right now being exposed to this toxic chemical in their water.

This is on top of our own efforts at EPAwatch.org where my lab tested hundreds of municipal water samples from across the country and found high levels of lead and other heavy metals in 6.7% of samples.

Yet another problem is hexavalent chromium, which is used in industrial operations such as chrome plating and the manufacturing of plastics and dyes. It has been linked to liver and kidney damage in animals as well as to leukemia, stomach cancer, and other cancers. Hexavalent Chromium has been found in the tap water of thirty-one out of thirty-five cities sampled. Of these cities, twenty-five had levels that exceeded safety standards. Sadly, even if your water is not contaminated with any of these substances, it may still be unsafe to drink. – The Great American Health Hoax – The Surprising Truth About Modern Medicine by Raymond Francis

America’s infrastructure collapsing into Third World status
As Donald Trump said recently at a rally in Michigan, we used to make cars in Flint and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico. Now the cars are being made in Mexico, and you can’t drink the water in Flint. Nor can you safely drink public water almost anywhere in America, as it’s almost universally contaminated with chromium-6, heavy metals or other toxic chemicals.

This doesn’t even cover the deliberate poisoning of public water systems with fluoride, a neurotoxic chemical purchased in bulk from Chinese chemical plants (or sometimes acquired as a waste product from fertilizer manufacturing factories). Fluoride is dumped into public water supplies under the quack science claim that every person in the nation is deficient in fluoride — a blatantly false and highly irresponsible claim. In reality, many children suffer from fluorosis, a dark mottling and discoloration of the teeth caused by too much exposure to toxic fluoride.

Avoid fluoride. A highly toxic metal, fluoride accumulates in certain areas of the brain (the pineal gland and hippocampus) and has been shown to significantly lower IQ and interfere with memory and complex brain functions. Studies have shown that even concentrations of 0.5 parts per million (ppm) can damage cells and microvessels in the brain. Yet, 60 percent of our public drinking water is fluorinated at higher levels of 1 to 1.3 ppm. – Dr. Blaylock’s Prescriptions for Natural Health – 70 Remedies for Common Conditions by Russell L. Blaylock

What’s astonishing in all this is just how quickly America’s infrastructure is collapsing into “Third World” status under the rule of a corrupt political establishment. The education system has become nothing more than a propaganda indoctrination system; the food supply is inundated with unlabeled GMOs and toxic herbicides like glyphosate; and now the water is too toxic to drink almost everywhere.

California, a corrupt regime run by incompetent communists and “progressive” idiots, went right along with the toxic chemical industry to allow an astonishing 500 times higher levels of chromium-6 than what’s known to be safe.

From the EWG report:

The California scientists based their public health goal of 0.02 parts per billion solely on protecting people from cancer and other diseases. Public health goals are not legally enforceable, but legal limits are supposed to be set as close as possible to health goals “while considering cost and technical feasibility.”But the California Department of Public Health relied on a flawed analysis that exaggerated the cost of treatment and undervalued the benefits of stricter regulation, and adopted a legally enforceable limit of 10 parts per billion.

But, wait… according to the lunatics selling contaminated “superfoods,” chromium-6 is all just fine because it’s “naturally occurring”…
Adding even more lunacy and catastrophic humor to this issue, there exist some highly unethical superfood / raw foods companies that claim eating heavy metals is GOOD for you because lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium are all “naturally occurring.”

Well then, according to the EPA, chromium-6 causes cancer and it’s also “naturally occurring.” I guess that means you’re supposed to drink more, right? From the EPA website:

Chromium-6 occurs naturally in the environment from the erosion of natural chromium deposits. It can also be produced by industrial processes. There are demonstrated instances of chromium being released to the environment by leakage, poor storage, or inadequate industrial waste disposal practices.

I guess soon, you’ll see Whole Foods carrying a brand new “superfood” product called “VitaChromium Six,” promoted by a young, hyperactive nitwit guru with an obedient following of brainwashed (and brain damaged) worshippers who don’t realize they’re all members of a chemical suicide cult. (Yeah, I said it.)

Who needs to drink the Kool-Aid when you’ve got super nutritious VitaChromium Six on sale at Whole Foods?

If you aren’t filtering your water, you’re committing chemical suicide
After becoming aware of all the toxic metals and chemicals in the drinking water these days, if you aren’t filtering your water with a reputable, lab-verified water filter, you’re basically participating in the chemical suicide of humanity.

Fortunately, the solution is very simple: Buy and use a reputable water filter!

At my online store, we sell the lab-verified Big Berkey gravity filter, which also doubles as an emergency system requiring no electricity whatsoever.

I’ve also personally tested and helped launch the AquaTru countertop filter, which removes chromium-6 and hundreds of other toxic chemicals and heavy metals.

Finally, if you want to test the heavy metals in your own water (or your supplements or even your hair!), check out this heavy metals test kit we offer, which analyzes your sample for 20 elements, including heavy metals and various trace minerals. (The kit does not, however, quantitate chromium-6.)

BOTTOM LINE: When illegal aliens walk across the wide open border and enter America to collect unlimited free entitlement benefits, there should be a sign posted that reads, “Welcome to America. DON’T DRINK THE WATER.”

The best argument yet for concealed carry: Milwaukee Black Lives Matter rioters target white people for extreme violence… the police can no longer protect you in America’s race war


Black Lives Matter

(NaturalNews) Pardon the bluntness of this article, but it is now obvious that American society is breaking down into social chaos characterized by racially motivated black-on-white mob violence. As much as I have repeatedly called for peace and unity among all citizens to realize the TRUE enemy is a corrupt, criminal government, there are still sectors of society where so-called “Black Lives Matter” rioters have become de facto Black Power terrorists who are deliberately hunting down and targeting white people for beatdowns and murder. (See shocking video, below.)

To these BLM rioters / terrorists, white people are nothing more than game targets to be hunted and destroyed for the sheer joy of it. This is what Obama’s America has now come to.

Although I repeat my call for peace and calm among all citizens, until the manipulated, brainwashed “social justice warriors” wake up and realize that their real enemies are George Soros, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — not Citizen Whitey McWhite — we need to have a serious discussion about divine rights, self-defense and the carrying of legal firearms to halt violence and save lives when the police can’t reach you in time. This advice applies to every law-abiding citizen regardless of their skin color, religion or sexual orientation. All people who believe in the divine right to life, liberty and happiness also deserve to protect themselves from extreme violence.

Make no mistake: Guns save lives when wielded by law-abiding citizens. And if you ever needed one more reason to buy and carry a loaded weapon in self-defense, witness this video from Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars. It depicts the complete breakdown of civil society into a violent race war carried out by Black Lives Matter rioters who racially targeted white people for acts of extreme violence over the weekend (in Milwaukee).

This video obliterates all arguments against the right to carry weapons for self-defense.

In fact, it all but proves the need for armed citizens to defend themselves against the violent criminality of Black Lives Matter rioters, whose own behavior has now devolved into the kind of animalistic vengeance you might expect to find in collapsed third world nations run by armed despots (who carry out their acts of genocide with machetes when guns are not available).

Via Infowars:

The clip shows angry rioters chanting “black power!” before asking “is they white?” as cars slowly drive past.

“Yeah they white!” states someone else, prompting the mob to run towards the vehicle.

“Yeah they white, get their ass!” screams another.

“Hey they beatin’ up every white person!” exclaims another rioter.

“He white – beat his head – bitch!” he adds.

The footage appears to show the mob attacking cars and trying to drag out the drivers.

The footage then cuts to an upper floor window before the person shooting the video states, “I think they just beat some white bitch ass for no reason – they bust open the window.”

Local reporters were also targeted for violent assaults, including a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reporter, who was “thrown to the ground and punched”.

WTMJ was forced to pull its reporters from the ground altogether because of violent threats from the mob.

In another clip, rioters are seen burning down a gas station while chanting “black power!”

How to halt acts of extreme violence that target you because of your skin color

In exactly the same way every human being has a divine right to grow food, harvest seeds, enjoy the benefits of herbal medicine and collect rainwater, every human being also has a divine right to defend one’s life against violence: rape, murder, injurious assault, etc.

While the divine right to self-defense has never diminished over the millennia of human civilization, the tools of that defense have evolved rapidly. A few hundred years ago, self-defense might have been accomplished by carrying a steel sword or knife (and knowing how to use it). Today, the most effective tools for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves against extreme violence are, of course, firearms.

It is ironic that the liberal white people most likely to be beat to death by BLM gangs in America’s inner cities are the very same people who “don’t believe in guns” in the first place. There’s a twisted kind of social injustice found in that failed philosophy, by the way. Someone’s refusal to “believe” in guns doesn’t stop angry BLM mobs from smashing in their white faces with baseball bats, you may have noticed. Fascinatingly, kinetic weapons do not require “belief” to function. They operate on cause and effect (i.e. the laws of physics, not mysticism or faith).

When it comes to halting violence, I don’t wave magic wands, call for a lighting strike from God or dial 911 and pray. Instead, I deploy a kinetic weapon that’s guaranteed to function as long as the laws of physics remain intact. That’s a pretty safe bet, by the way. If the laws of physics stop working, we’re all toast anyway.

Call the police AFTER you’re safe (and have time to reload)

When the government can’t protect you, a Remington shotgun can. Or a loaded Glock pistol, for that matter. Let there be no question whatsoever that any group of violent, racist rioters who are targeting people for their skin color and dragging them out of their vehicles for violent beatdowns can be justifiably shot on sight by those who refuse to be their victims, all in full compliance with not only the laws of the land but also the laws of morality and ethics.

You don’t shoot these people to cause them injury or harm, by the way. This isn’t an act of vengeance. You shoot to halt their actions because you have no other choice, and you thereby spare yourself and others from being seriously harmed or killed by them. Shooting someone as a last ditch act of self-defense is really an act of tough love in defense of innocent life. Sometimes you have to destroy a bad person to protect good people.

Or, as military snipers sometimes say, “GOOD people sometimes have to do BAD things to BAD people.” Hence the Glock G19 Gen4, arguably the No. 1 self-defense weapon of choice for men and women alike. The number of rapes, murders and beatdowns that have been stopped by the G19 is beyond counting.

Here’s another look at what “social justice warriors” are doing in America’s cities: Looting… screaming… lawless mayhem. This is what Obama and decades of failed liberal economic policies have brought to the doorstep of modern society:

If you’re not armed yet, you’re not ready for the next phase of Obama’s race war rioting / martial law / national emergency

If you aren’t yet carrying a loaded firearm for self-defense, get armed up NOW as long as it’s legal in your area. Get trained and proficient, too. Know how to clear jams, stovepipes, double feeds, dud rounds and so on. If you can’t keep your gun up and running in a real fight, you’re not ready to carry it.

Remember: Obama’s long-planned race ware is now activated, meaning there will be a whole lot more race-based violence across America’s cities… and of course all the “social justice” warriors — who are really violent, racist, hate-filled bigots and raging mindless animals — are going to be targeting WHITE people for their killings. It’s the ultimate hate crime, judging people solely on their skin color then murdering them in the name of “Black Power.” Remember, these are the same people who correctly said that the lynching and murder of black people in the name of “WHITE POWER” was horrific. And they were right! All racial violence is wrong! But now, apparently, all that murder and mayhem is perfectly okay as long as it’s done in the name of BLACK POWER. Hmmm… that’s pretty f’d up, if you ask me. Why can’t we just say “All Lives Matter” and stop shooting each other in the name of “justice” of any kind?

If you carry a loaded firearm for self-defense, by the way, carry a spare magazine. I’ve found the most amazing horizontal belt magazine carrier called the SHTF Gear Horizontal Magazine Carrier. It allows you to carry an extra magazine horizontally on your belt, with outstanding concealment and easy movement. I’ve carried a spare .40 magazine in this exact pouch for about two years now, and it’s still holding up.

Remember, much of today’s violence is being carried out by racist, angry, bigoted HATE MOBS, not just individuals. This means you will likely need to reload. Don’t get caught with only one magazine in your gun. Like I always say in my tactical handgun classes, if they ever find me beat to death by an angry mob, there are going to be shell casings and empty magazines (and lots of dead m—er f—ers) all over the place, because I’m not dying with a round still in the chamber, got me? Yeah, some angry mob might eventually overpower me, but it’s gonna cost ’em dearly in the process. (Clint Eastwood was right. Stop being such a pu–y and learn how to deal with the real world as an adult.)

How to shoot to STOP violent criminals

Sadly, most people who own guns never quite learn how to use them very effectively. If you’re going to act in self-defense as a last resort to save lives and halt violence, you need to act decisively to halt the threat as quickly as possible.

Those of us who are trained in tactical handgun combat at the advanced levels are actually trained to shoot the pelvis, not the chest, because shattering someone’s pelvis immediately causes them to crumple to the ground. And that’s the entire purpose of shooting someone in self-defense: To STOP their assault and thereby protect lives.

If you shoot someone in the chest, they can keep charging in your direction (and often do). If you shoot them in the pelvis with a hollow point or rifle round, they are usually out of the fight almost instantly, which affords you more time to take out their fellow criminals who are also probably trying to murder you. Rookie cops are often trained to shoot center body mass only because it’s the simplest way to teach beginner marksmanship to newbies. Veteran cops know that shooting the pelvis is a far more effective way to stop the threat. Also, as a tactical bonus, very few people wear pelvis body armor (or steel underwear). But chest body armor is common among some criminals.

SUMMARY: The open streets are not your stupid SAFE SPACE

Forget your “safe spaces” and “social justice” delusions. When an angry mob (of any skin color) deliberately targets another group of people for the color of their skin and seeks to carry out acts of extreme violence against them, the correct solution isn’t “social justice” but rather HALTING their violence as quickly as possible. This is a universal principle, and it applies to a mob of white people trying to lynch a black person just as much as it applies to a mob of black people trying to beat white people to death.

There is no circumstance under which mob violence against racially targeted victims is acceptable in any kind of lawful society. In all such cases, those who carry out acts of such extreme hatred and violence must be immediately stopped, either by law enforcement or by armed, responsible citizens packing hollow point ammo in their Glocks and Colts. When the police finally show up to document the aftermath of the incident, make no mistake that they will be thanking the citizens who opened fire and stopped the violent criminals from harming yet more people.

I wish all Natural News readers health and safety, and I urge you to wake up and open your eyes to what’s actually happening to America due to the democrats’ desire for absolute chaos, murder and mayhem before the coming election. It’s gonna get a whole lot worse before November, and I don’t want any of you to be victims of this senseless violence. (Your intelligence and wisdom will be needed to help rebuild America after Trump gets elected.)

If you believe in saving lives and preventing violence, then you automatically believe in self-defense. Now it’s time to ACT ON IT and arm yourself in the defense of your divine life and your right to safety.

P.S. You can order a Glock handgun at Buds Gun Shop and have it shipped to your local FFL dealers, where you will be subjected to all the usual FBI background checks, etc. (You can’t actually buy a gun on the internet. It gets shipped to a dealer, then you pick it up there after going through the background checks.)

If you don’t know which Glock is right for you, buy one of each!

While you’re waiting for your Glock to arrive, read NewsTarget.com to stay informed on exactly why you might need it.

U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Mar 7, 2016 (emphasis added): [Oconee Nuclear Station, SC] EMERGENCY DECLARATION DUE TO FIRE/EXPLOSION IN THE MAIN TRANSFORMER… At 1520 EST, the licensee declared a Notification of Unusual Event… personnel were applying additional foam to prevent a re-flash… Offsite assistance was requested with three local fire departments… At 1658 EST, the licensee declared an Alert [when] the fire damaged an overhead power line that supplies emergency power to all three units at Oconee.

WHNS transcript, Mar 7, 2016: People fishing on the lake… reported hearing a loud boom and seeing black smoke, and then steam… Witnesses say there were two explosions… This afternoon [was] chaos… Fire crews [were] all on scene at the Oconee nuclear plant after a massive electrical fire… Fire Official: “It’s also in very close proximity to the buildings… I know they worked on… preventing the transformer from impinging on any of the other structures”… People in the area were very concerned when they saw heavy black smokeWitness: “All of a sudden we heard this loud boom and the whole ground started shaking.”… It’s a scary situation… [An official] said it was a very rare problem.

Loudspeaker at Oconee Nuclear Station: “Attention all site personnel… This is an emergency message… An unusual event has been declared for Unit 1… TSC – OSC [Technical Support Center – Onsite Operational Support Center] activation is necessary and the TSC – OSC has not yet been activated. Activate the TSC – OSC — I repeat, activate the TSC – OSC.”

WYFF, Mar 7, 2016: Scott Batson, site vice president [said] the intense flames and smoke came from oil burning… Batson said because a cable burned in the fire fell and caused other equipment to be affected, which led to the “unusual event” to be upgraded to an alert.

FOX Carolina, Mar 7, 2016: Hundreds of fire personnel sprang into action after a fire started at the Oconee Nuclear Plant.

WSPA transcript, Mar 7, 2016: Nearby Resident:I freaked out – you see a fire, smoke at a a power plant”… Fire Chief: “When you’re responding to a call, and you can see it when you leave the station like that, it really kind of gets your adrenaline going.”

Oconee County Emergency Management, Mar 7, 2016: “We ask that the public stay away from the area as emergency personnel and Duke Energy staff work.”

Greenville News, Mar 6, 2016: The alert was necessary because the problem could have affected operations of the plant itself… The transformer is 25 to 30 feet from the turbine building that serves Unit 1 and about 100 yards from the reactor building

WLOS, Mar 6, 2016: A transformer burst into flames at an Upstate nuclear power station…. Officials did ask the public to stay away from the area… The fire chief also said crews are continuing to work with on-site personnel to ensure… there is no further extension.

ABC Australia, May 24, 2016 (emphasis added): [ABC’s Mark Willacy] has been invited on a tour of [Fukushima Daiichi]… What Willacy discovers is truly unsettling… retrieving hundreds of tonnes of melted nuclear fuel turns out to be far greater than previously thought.

ABC Australia transcript excerpts, May 24, 2016:

Willacy: Tonight we go on a journey into the heart of this ongoing crisis… and we reveal the frightening enormity of the clean-up… and how dangerous it still is.
Gregory Jaczko, former Chairman of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission: This really is unchartered territory. Nobody really knows where the fuel is… There’s no playbook – they’re making this up as they go along.
Willacy: The man in charge of decontaminating and decommissioning the Fukushima plant, Naohiro Masuda. Has anything like this ever been attempted before?
Masuda: There has never been an accident at a nuclear plant like the one at Fukushima where three reactors had meltdowns. We are currently working on a timetable to decommission the reactors over the next 30 to 40 years.
Naoto Kan, Former Prime Minister: I think it will take longer… This is a major accident, which has never happened anywhere in the world… 40 years is an optimistic view.
Willacy: We are heading to the buildings housing the melted reactors… Tepco is worried about possible nuclear terrorism, and won’t allow us to film certain security sites.
Masuda: This is a job we’ve never done and there is no textbook.
Willacy: [At Reactor 3 there was an] explosion right after the nuclear fuel melted… What happened inside [Reactor 2] no-one really knows… [Reactor 1] is where probably the worst meltdown occurred. They don’t know where the nuclear fuel is.
Masuda: We haven’t actually seen where the melted fuel fell, so it’s important to find it as soon as possible.
Willacy: For the first time, Foreign Correspondent can reveal just how vast the amount of melted nuclear fuel is, the three molten blobs that lie somewhere deep within each of these buildings.
Masuda: It’s estimated that 200 tonnes of debris lies within each unit… 600 tonnes of melted debris fuel and a mixture of concrete and other metals are likely to be here.
Willacy: The most daunting task, one the nuclear industry has never faced, is getting the melted fuel out. TEPCO admits the technology it needs hasn’t been invented.
Jaczko: It may be possible that we’re never able to remove the fuel. You may just wind up having to leave it there and somehow entomb it as it is. I mean that’s certainly a possibility. There is no playbook, they’re making this up as they go along.
Kan: If all the reactors had had a meltdown, there was a risk that half or all of Japan could have been destroyed… the accident took us to the brink of destruction.
Jaczko: You have to now accept that in all nuclear power plants… there’s a chance you can have this kind of a very catastrophic accident… that’s the reality of nuclear power.

ABC Australia, May 24, 2016: Fukushima clean-up chief still hunting for 600 tonnes of melted radioactive fuel… [TEPCO] has revealed that 600 tonnes of reactor fuel melted during the disaster, and that the exact location of the highly radioactive blobs remains a mystery… [C]hief of decommissioning at Fukushima, Naohiro Masuda, said the company hoped to… begin removing it from 2021… “But unfortunately, we don’t know exactly where (the fuel) is” [said Masuda]. [Gregory Jaczko, Chairman of the US NRC] at the time of the meltdowns at Fukushima doubts the fuel can be retrieved… “Nobody really knows where the fuel is… It may be possible that we’re never able to remove the fuel. You may just have to wind up leaving it there and somehow entomb it as it is.”… For the first time, TEPCO has revealed just how much of the mostly uranium fuel melted down… [Masuda said] “about 600 tonnes of melted debris fuel and a mixture of concrete and other metals are likely to be there.”

RT, May 24, 2016: 600 tons of melted radioactive Fukushima fuel still not found, clean-up chief reveals… [The fuel] burnt through the respective reactor pressure vessels, concentrating somewhere on the lower levels of the station… fuel from Reactor 1 poured out completely… the exact location of the highly radioactive “runaway” fuel remains mystery for TEPCO. The absolutely uncontrollable fission of the melted nuclear fuel assemblies continue somewhere under the remains of the station… [TEPCO’s] plan for Fukushima nuclear power plant implies a 30-40 year period… Yet experts doubt the present state of technology is sufficient to deal with the unprecedented technical task.

Health Ranger:EPA, FDA raising their own private armies with body armor and military weapons



EPA, FDA raising their own private armies with body armor and military weapons
http://epawatch.org/2016-01-15-epa-fda-raising-their-own-private-armies-with-body-armor-and-military-weapons.html
January 15th, 2016, by Mike Adams

Both the EPA and FDA are arming up with military-style equipment such as body armor, spending tens of millions of dollars on such gear over the last few years.
OpenTheBooks.com has been tracking this government spending on military-style equipment, revealing a frightening pattern of regulatory agencies – which should be pushing paper – now building their own PRIVATE ARMIES to be used as weapons of intimidation and coercion against the People.
The regulatory police state has arrived! When an “environmental” protection agency is building its own private army with military weapons, body armor and assault gear, you know something has gone horribly wrong with the federal government.
Now, farmers can be subjected to military-style EPA raids and intimidation tactics, almost as if the government itself is engaging in state-sponsored terror against American citizens.
As reported by alternative media outlets, the FDA, too, is building its own military-style “government militia” of armed assault teams. Is this part of the FDA’s continued mission to destroy natural products that compete with the profits of Big Pharma?

AP, Apr 29, 2016 (emphasis added): Fukushima No. 1 plant’s ice wall won’t be watertight, says chief architect… Even if the frozen barrier… works as envisioned, it will not completely block all water… because of gaps in the wall… said Yuichi Okamura, a chief architect… Tepco resorted to [this] after it became clear it had to do something drastic… [Okamura said,] “We have come up against many unexpected problems.” The water woes are just part of the many obstacles… No one has even seen the nuclear debris…


Huffington Post, Apr 1, 2016: ‘Ice Wall’ Is Japan’s Last-Ditch Effort To Contain Fukushima Radiation… [It’s] a desperate attempt to stop radiation that’s been leaking from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant for five years…

Kyodo, Mar 30, 2016: The NRA warned earlier that if the groundwater levels within the [ice] walls is reduced excessively by blocking the flow from outside, highly contaminated water within the buildings could seep out as a result.

Proposal for controlling ground water and radioactive leakage in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (by World Water and Climate Foundation): [TEPCO] has a plan to freeze soil around the plant… this idea may not be sustainable… over the 200-year period that will be required for the reactors to be decommissioned.… The problem with freezing… is that solutes may be expelled from the ice… This can result in extremely concentrated saline solutions that do not freeze even at low temperatures. It is likely that under these conditions radioactive materials could become highly concentrated in dense brines that could then flow as density currents… Also, heating and cooling during the four annual seasons in Japan may make the ground of the station site softer and wetter like a swamp, and it could create another risk to the reactors, such as building destruction… The authors would like to express sincere thanks to Dr. W.F. Vincent, Dr. I. Ostrovsky, Dr. S. Kudoh and Dr. L. Legendre for their valuable comments and suggestions for strengthening this proposal.

Los Alamos National Laboratory: Integrated model of groundwater flow and radionuclide migration at Fukushima Daiichi… we will be able to answers critical questions such as… Will the cryogenic barrier lead to salt water intrusion at the site thereby mobilizing contaminants such as Cs and Sr that are mobile under high salinity conditions?

U.S. Department of Energy, 2015: Independent Technical Support for the Frozen Soil Barrier… several references discuss soil heave in the context of artificial ground freezing… It is possible that some observable heaving will occur directly above and directly adjacent to the frozen soil barrier… Monitoring of temperatures, heave pressures, and deformations… would provide information to assist in managing impacts from soil heave…


Geological Survey of Japan, 2015: [T]he sustainability of the ice wall remains doubtful… Furthermore, the ice lenses will grow irregularly as per the distribution of chiller pipes, and the sediment desaturation might lead to the aquitards’ compaction and subsidence around the buildings. In effect, a decrease in pore water pressure could increase the effective stress of the ground and result in movements and the formation of fractures in the superficial units.

IAEA, 2016: The IAEA group of experts reviewed the status of groundwater inflow, countermeasures and modelling… During the visit to Daiichi NPS on 18 February 2016, groundwater seepage on the slopes [i.e. cliffs over 100 feet high directly behind plant] that have been covered with facing was observed by the IAEA experts… seepage through the facing could create geotechnical instability on the slope if horizontal drains are not installed…

Nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen on Fukushima@5, Mar 7, 2016 (emphasis added): Massive amounts of radiation continue to enter Japan’s water and air, and the Pacific Ocean, daily… Due to its triple meltdowns and the unmitigable radioactive releases, Fukushima Daiichi will continue to bleed radiation into the Pacific Ocean for more than a century… There is no road map to follow with directions to stop the ongoing debacle…

Nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen on KPFA, Mar 30, 2016: [Univ. of California] Berkeley’s nuclear program has been in the forefront of the pro-nuclear propaganda for decades, and since Fukushima has been aggressively downplaying the significance of it. So, whatever comes out of Berkeley, I just attribute to a very pro-nuclear faculty… [Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is] measuring 1,000 miles offshore [of the US West Coast] and… picking up 10 becquerels per cubic meter [Bq/m3]. At my point, that’s when my alarm bells go off is 10 [Bq/m3]… Thatplume is still coming, the Pacific is a huge place and to think that a disaster on the opposite side of the world can be detected and begin to contaminate California, I think that themonumental shattering conclusion [is] radiation knows no borders… So this ‘dilution is the solution to pollution’ is what I think Berkeley believes in. What you can be sure of is that somebody’s going to die from the radiation that’s in the Pacific, but you just won’t know who it is – and they’re counting on that. The nuclear establishment is saying, ‘Well, we can smear that out in a broader epidemiological study.’

Nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen on CCTV, Apr 5, 2016: We’re looking at newspaper coverage from the last couple of weeks and it’s clear that the plant continues to hemorrhage.

Fairewinds Japan Speaking Tour Series No. 1, Feb 12, 2016:

  • Nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen: [T]he Fukushima power plants… continues to bleed into the Pacific every day. But what no one is paying any attention to is that the entire mountain range that runs 100 miles up and down this coast is also contaminated. And as much radiation is pouring out… into the Pacific from the mountain range because it’s so contaminated, as from the Fukushima site… in fact, they’ve got an entire state pouring radiation into the Pacific. So what’s in the Pacific? Off of California, they’re finding radiation at what I would consider significant levels… in a cubic meter of ocean water, they’re finding 10 radioactive decays every second… So a cubic meter of water, if you’re in a dark room, would have 10 flashes of light every second, and that’s going to go on for 300 years. So we have contaminated the biggest source of water on the planet, and there’s no way to stop it.
  • Maggie Gundersen, founder of Fairewinds: So are you saying that the contaminated water problem is hopeless? Is there nothing we can do to slow it down?
  • Arnie Gundersen: It used to be that scientists believed dilution is the solution to pollution. But I think we’re finding with the biggest body of water on the planet, that you can’t dilute this stuff. And we’re going to begin to see this bio-accumulation, which is all the fish that are in the ocean are going to uptake the cesium and the strontium and become more and more and more radioactive
