Fukushima: The Untouchable Eco-Apocalypse No One Is Talking About


By Alex Pietrowski

The most important ecological crisis of the world has ever seen has been underway since March 11th, 2011, yet there is nary a mention of it in the corporate media, and no political body in the world is championing its resolution.

Widespread Denial and Willful Ignorance

The media, politicians and the world at large seem to be engaging in extreme denial regarding Fukushima. A survey of mainstream media coverage of the fallout of this event reveals the trend of covering this story as a human interest affair, not as the immediate threat it truly is.

The effects on nature are already being seen, yet even among the environmentalist factions of media, there is strong denial of the damage already done and of what is to come as the crisis approaches its sixth year. Some 300 tons of radioactive water are dumped into the Pacific Ocean each day, and signs are showing that this catastrophe is gravely affecting sea-life and wildlife in and around the Pacific.

The FDA maintains that there is no  evidence of contamination by Fukushima-borne radionuclides in the American food supply, yet this opinion is contested by some independent researchers. A report by the Fairewinds Energy Education says that cancer is on the rise in areas around the failed power plant, and that millions will die in coming years as a result.

[T]he second report received from Japan proves that the incidence of thyroid cancer is approximately 230 times higher than normal in Fukushima Prefecture… So what’s the bottom line? The cancers already occurring in Japan are just the tip of the iceberg. I’m sorry to say that the worst is yet to come. [Source]

As election year in the U.S. approaches its dramatic climax, it has been striking to observe that neither of the major two-party candidates, or third-party candidates for that matter, have mentioned this crisis at all during the entire election run up. It is a non-issue in American politics, and if you’re listening, the silence is deafening.

The 40-Year-Plan

Thus far, all plans to stop radioactive contamination of the Pacific Ocean and the Japanese Islands have failed, the most impressive of which is the construction of a $320 million underground wall of frozen dirt to block the seepage of groundwater into surrounding areas. 1oo feet deep and over a mile long, the ‘land-side impermeable wall‘ is already failing as rainfall from recent typhoons has caused partial melting of sections of the ‘ice wall.’

A previous and ongoing cleanup effort requiring the onsite storage of contaminated water near the Fukushima Daiichi is merely a band-aid as radioactive water continues to accumulate by the day, with no long-term plan for proper disposal.

…the filtered water is still full of tritium, a radioactive version of hydrogen. (When two neutrons are added to the element, it becomes unstable, prone to emitting electrons.) Tritium bonds with oxygen just like normal hydrogen does, to produce radioactive “tritiated water.” It’s impractical—or at least extremely difficult and expensive—to separate tritiated water from normal water.

The reality here is that this crisis is untouchable in its scope and unparalleled in its lethality, and TEPCO’s 40-year-plan to decommission the plant will be a failure.

Final Thoughts

No one of significant import is talking about this crisis or working to elevate it as a national and international priority. The American political scene is focused instead on the selection of the next president being chosen between two candidates who clearly have zero interest in addressing this dire issue.

Is this because nothing can be done about it? Is this because the energy industry is controlling the conversation and covering up the truth? Or is this because the agenda for the U.S. at present is geared to destabilization and a push for expansion of the Orwellian Permanent War, and ecological disasters are supportive of the global depopulation scheme in play?

In any case, the Fukushima meltdown is a slow-burning apocalyptic event that desperately needs our attention.

  1. This is Pandora’s Box opened & set loose on the world & ignominiously swept under the carpet of our collectively contrived busy misdirected & purposely distracted / alpha-waved sleep-walking myopic busy lives.
    …Why did the Queen & the Rothschild’s underwrite these toxic/poisonous radiation belching & extremely hazardous dirty monstrosities?… & then build them on geophysical fault lines right beside the ocean & on top of fresh water aquifers in the first place?… as this same Modus Operandi is repeated all over the world…which gives one rise to think that perhaps that Icke fella is on to something regarding these bloodline frequency ‘shape-shifter’s’…. that demonically possess the avatar bodies of Queen Lizardbreath et al…terra-forming the planet to accommodate their reptilian buddies on their way to inhabit a denuded Earth that is more to their liking?….just saying…as this proposition is just as likely considering the insanity of of this nuclear miasma in the first place (imho)

    • Yes, and the way that perpetual war is promoted which can, and has to, eventually, only lead to total annihilation of biological integrity through mass nuclear contamination. Makes one realise that total eeevil has overtaken here. Not Evil as an universal subject but eeevil as in how a wobbly young dear will see an on rushing hyena because that is actually what is really happening. We are being predated on and parasitized and the left-over husk will be incinerated when that fkkng thing is done with us. How the fck are we going to wake up the rest of humanity before it is too late because it is humanity that will be used to finally annihilate each other – as that is the modus operandi of that fkkng thing.

      The internet will be slashed soon so then there will be NO possibility of warning the populations. This information war has been going on since at least when this obscure, skulking hyena caused the “dark ages”.

      • Well articulated & at the crux of the matter…can only suggest that we all need to realize that we are all (for the most part) eternal souls..you don’t have a soul..You are a soul!…here for a very temporary visit -relatively speaking…Best to get one’s own spiritual house in order & I’m not even slightly ‘Religious'[sic]…by concentrating on the ephemeral transient metaphysical aspects of life that you simply can’t take with you …the numinous qualities of our essence if you will …cheers

        • I certainly am in deep congruence with your philosophy that we live as souls – here for a fleeting moment.
          I look at all the beautiful young children around me and I feel deep sadness that they will bare the brunt of this toxic Armageddon that is cascading down on us by this “fckn Thing”. Millions of children are going to be exposed and endure terrible suffering in all the cities for the rapacity and power greed of a colony of mange, drooling rats who are under the ridiculous delusion that they are somehow “the chosen elite”.

          Best of luck in your region Eddy,
