Japan has been rocked by another set of serious earthquakes over the past week and reports are delivered, though not widely covered in the press, that food sources even in China are now contaminated. In the United States the Fort Calhoun Nuclear facility in Nebraska has been shut down for over a month and a half after suffering flooding much like Fukushima. It also suffered a fire and a loss of power.
On June 6, 2011, the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) deemed the area as restricted air space effective immediately due to hazards making it a ‘No Fly Zone’. They claimed this was due to ‘hazards’ yet the Nuclear Agency, the NRC, states there is no cause for the public to panic. More Here
There are many things our trusted media seem to avoid discussing. It would be curious to know if this was a deliberate attempt to stay quiet on these disturbing subjects, such as how the NRC puts it. Do they mean ‘there is no cause for the public to panic” or there is no need to cause the public to panic”? We agree with the later statement. However there is a need to inform the public so they can make their own intelligent informed decisions.
Just under two weeks ago we received a message from a reader, Mr. Wiebe, regarding the radiation exposure we are all currently enduring. The message was, “Stay out of the rain”. This is due to the rain potentially bringing the radioactive elements floating in the atmosphere down to the ground in the rain droplets. If true, one could make an informed choice to keep their children inside when it is raining. Another person might decide to buy iodide to saturate the thyroid gland which is most susceptible. In any case, knowledge would be helpful from the Ministries of Health and Government leaders.
And then there is the "Field of bad
Dreams" floating across the Pacific Ocean carrying with it and behind it, radioactive debis of all types. Current estimates are it will arrive on our shores sometime after 2014 but all acknowledge the estimates could be way off either way.
Today the governments are all silent on the subjects.

John Disney, at the time acting Chief at Old Massett on Haida Gwaii, immediately began testing the rain water after the disaster in Japan was revealed. Health Canada accused him of fear mongering. They then told him he was reading the results wrong. This Video demonstrates why he was absolutely correct
to begin this testing and how Health Canada was completely negligent with their duty to consider the health of Canadians.

As for Japan and Fort Calhoun, they contain a frightening amount of stored spent and highly toxic fuel rods, those which are required to be kept cool so they do not catch fire, melt down or explode. The Fukushima facility is very fragile and this last series of quakes has many worried the structure will fall over completely spilling these rods into the open.
Maybe it is best not to talk about these things, especially if the governments across the globe have decided they are not going to do anything or take any action.
