What can I say. If what you say is true, then Japan and a good part of the Pacific rim is quite literally toast.
The media is silent on this because the news would be very damaging to the nuclear power industry, those who are invested in it and the market as a whole.
The date on the accompanying video says March 24. But I don’t trust anyone whose anything is “completely safe”. There is no such thing.
I posted about Fukushima’s alleged China Syndrome at the science forum at the James Randi website. I referred to Haruo’s claim, and his background.
While I don’t have great confidence in anything that TEPCO says, it appears that their claim that temperatures of ambient water have been under 100C for quite some time, are true. I.e., no China syndrome, apparently.
Greg Palast has written on TEPCO’s mendacity, so skepticism is warranted….
Personally I would not believe anything the nuclear power industry says at this point.
The Corporatist media is basically doing it’s usual “Nothing to see here folks move along,” number. We live in the world of “The Outer Limits” now. They control the Horz. and the Vertical etc. et al.

The Busby smear has been debunked. He’s not selling pills. He advised taking calcium supplements, which would block Strontium 90 from being taken up by bone, as KI tablets block Iodine 131 uptake by the thyroid.
When James Ryan planned to import the calcium pills into Japan he was attacked by the Japanese government, so he couldn’t raise funds or get partners to do this. He got death threats.

The radiation is being deposited throughout the US as well, wherever the jet stream and rain coincide. For instance, a reading from St. Louis’ November 27 ‘light mist’ showed radiation 33x background. Source: http://pissinontheroses.blogspot.com/2011/11/light-mist-with-33x-background.html
Arnie Gundersen warns people in the Northwest about high amounts of fallout deposited there, and suggests not eating the local fish: http://enenews.com/gundersen-if-in-oregon-wash-calif-you-need-to-demand-officials-test-how-fukushima-fallout-has-affected-rivers-and-fish-significant-radiation-hit-west-coast-and-settled-in-on-cascades-video
