DR. CHRIS BUSBY
NOTE FROM JEFF: In this posting I lament the fact that the global nuclear scenario has more or less left the radar of people in general (given that I have any comprehension of 'people in general!), after a brief 'renaissance' if you will thanks to Fukushima; and I must admit that in recent months, it hasn't been on mine much either, primarily due to logistics of a highly mobile way of life with no shortage of uncertainty. Thanks to a convergence of several dimensions of 'all things nuclear' this past week, I have been inspired as well as able to share this with you. I hope Dr. Chris Busby doesn't feel that I'm attacking him; I'm not, just engaging in critical analysis and commentary on something of urgent importance. His recent article does, however, smack of the 'everything's A-OK' mentality that seems to permeate our collective quasi-consciousness. I'm not joking when I say that this mentality has more than likely been deliberately engineered by global mind-control operations and technologies; geo-scientist Leuren Moret has revealed that ionizing radiation is well-known to cause cognitive debilitation. And when's the last time that YOU analyzed your local HAARP-activated chem-trail residue or the emanations from your new HD tv? I also believe that although the precise nature of what is happening in and around the reactor complex at Fukushima is riddled with unknowns and unknowables, the primary result...the astronomical on-going contamination of the planetary biosphere and specifically the Pacific ocean with every synthetic radio-nuclide known to exist...has also been deliberately engineered, and the continued cycling of sea water through the complex is no accident but part of the plan all along. If there's one thing that EVERY scientist involved or knowledgeable about all things nuclear agrees on, it's the extreme carcinogenicity and mutagenicity of ionizing radiation at any level, the extreme danger to all biological life.
July 16th marked the 68th anniversary of Trinity, the dawn of the nuclear age; August 6th and 9th the anniversaries of 'tests 2 and 3', Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which completed the 'unholy trinity'. In the past week or two we've seen renewed and elevated publicity about radio-nuclides from Fukushima contaminating the Pacific ocean. And in just the past few days, evidence demonstrates that Israel has used tactical nuclear weapons in Syria.
Does anyone out there actually appreciate what this means? Does anyone out there even care? It seems to me that almost everyone, even those who once were aware, have become totally numb and oblivious to what is without a doubt THE capstone on the pyramid of military-industrial civilization's escalating and full-spectrum war on life as we know her. The single greatest ecological disaster in history goes unrecognized by 'Generation F' whose semi-functional psychic and cognitive 'radar' is jammed with chaff like the Snowden hoax, 'climate change', Obama's dirty laundry and a host of any manufactured artifacts of trivia that can be presented as 'news'.
Of the handful of people who have been beacons of truth and accurate information in the wake of Fukushima, even the once-noted Dr. Chris Busby came out with an article the other day that really disturbed me. On one hand, I thank Chris for taking the time to write this article and to keep Fukushima on our radar, but on the other I feel that he has omitted SO much vital information that the end result is quite misleading.
Here is a link to the article.
'Pump and pray: Tepco might have to pour water on Fukushima wreckage forever.'
Here is my response, posted on Facebook. My comments are in all capitals.
THIS ARTICLE WAS NOT WRITTEN BY THE CHRIS BUSBY WHO TOLD US ABOUT THE DANGERS OF IONIZING RADIATION TWO YEARS AGO. THIS ARTICLE IS RIDDLED WITH GIBBERISH. FOR EXAMPLE
"The first is that the Pacific Ocean is big enough for this level of release not to represent the global catastrophe that some are predicting. Let’s get some scoping perspective on this. The volume of the North Pacific is 300 million cubic kilometers. The total inventory of the four Fukushima Daiichi reactors, including their spent fuel pools, is 732 tons of Uranium and Plutonium fuel which is largely insoluble in sea water.
NOTE: IT'S NOT SOLUBILITY OF THE FUEL THAT MATTERS, IT'S THE RADIATION SPREADING FROM IT. FUEL RODS DON'T DISSOLVE IN WATER, EITHER, BUT THEY MAKE IT VERY RADIO-ACTIVE.
The inventory in terms of the medium half-life nuclides of radiological significance Cs-137, Cs-134 and Strontium-90, is 3 x 1018 becquerels (Bq) each.
THESE FIGURES ARE ASTRONOMICALLY LOW AND GIBBERISH-LEVEL: THE TRUE LEVELS OF THESE RADIO-NUCLIDES WOULD BE ON THE ORDER OF PETA-BECQUERELS, OR 10 to the 18th POWER BECQUERELS.
Adding these up gives about 1019 Bq. If we dissolve that entire amount into the Pacific, we get a mean concentration of 33 Bq per cubic meter - not great, but not lethal. Of course this is ridiculous since the catastrophe released less than 1017 Bq of these combined nuclides
THIS IS UTTER NONSENSE AND A TOTAL LIE: THIS CATASTROPHE RELEASED ON THE ORDER OF PETA OR EVEN EXA-BECQUERELS, A COMBINATION OF CLOSE TO 2000 SYNTHETIC RADIO-NUCLIDES AND THEIR ASSOCIATED DECAY-CHAIN DAUGHTERS.
and even if all of this ends up in the sea (which it may do), the overall dilution will result in a concentration of 1 Bq per cubic meter. So the people in California can relax."
THE 'DILUTION IS THE SOLUTION' ARGUMENT IS TOTALLY BOGUS. BUSBY WHEN DID THEY BUY YOU OFF?
I DON'T THINK THIS ARTICLE WAS ACTUALLY WRITTEN BY DR. CHRIS BUSBY TO BE HONEST.
Here is Chris Busby's response to my comment:
"The article should have written that as 10 to the power 18 and not 1018, that was a scripting mistake. So 1017 is 10 to the power 17 and so on. The dilution you can do yourself and see what you get. I do not think that the dilution into the Pacific represents a global catastrophe inthe sense of everything dying; in this I differ from Arnie Gundersen and maybe others, maybe including yourself. It is certainly not something that is good, but the contamination of the Pacific by the USA atmospheric nuclear tests was more serious than what has happened so far. The long distance fish (tuna) will pick up and concentrate radionuclides, but the concentrations in the Baltic fish and Irish Sea fish are much higher than anything we have seen yet caught in the USA. I did write the article. I stand by what I wrote. If you can show me its is wrong I will change my mind."
Busby himself seems to have 'relaxed' and seems totally to have lost any sense of urgency and perspective he may have once had concerning the overall global nuclear scenario. He even seemed to be 'ameliorating' or marginalizing the ecological and health impacts of this catastrophic and on-going release of synthetic radio-nuclides, whose inestimable and incalculable quantities must be added onto the planetary burden that already exists from over 2000 atmospheric tests; the mining and processing of uranium; the existence of close to 1000 nuclear reactors, each of which releases radio-nuclides on a daily basis; the stock-pile of radio-active wastes generated by each of these reactors; the hundreds of thousands of tons of DU, or 'depleted uranium' that is literally 'blowin' in the wind' on every continent except Antarctica; and finally, the tens of thousands of actual 'weapons'...which ironically are actually the 'safest' of all things nuclear in that they are self-contained until used.
Busby's reasoning is flawed in a number of ways, and it's not about his inaccurate exponential notations. How much sense does it make to calculate 1) the size of the Pacific ocean then 2) how many tons of fuel existed at Fukushima then 3) divide one by the other and get a 'dilution coefficient.'
How much sense does it make to think that the radio-nuclide contamination is going to stop at the 'borders' of the Pacific ocean? Why not calculate the volume of the entire planetary ocean...then the concentration will appear to be even lower!
But a FAR worse assumption he makes is that THESE seemingly low levels are 'acceptable' and that
"I do not think that the dilution into the Pacific represents a global catastrophe in the sense of everything dying."
What kind of global catastrophe IS it then? What is going on, not only with Fukushima but with respect to the overall global nuclear scenario, is a VAST UNKNOWN. WE are the experiment. Synthetic radio-nuclides have only existed for 68 years. That's only 2 generations of humans. Genetic toxicologists in the days of Rachel Carson, Dr. Arnold Lehmann, for example, told us that in order truly to understand the health effects of radio-logical or chemical carcinogens and mutagens, at least 25 generations of people must be studied. This means that in order even to approximate what the true long-term health effects are, we have to wait around for another 400 years or so.
We have not erred on the side of caution; prudency would have precluded Trinity. Au contraire, we have saturated the entire biosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere of Mother Earth with astronomically unknowable quantities of close to 2000 known synthetic radio-nuclides, many of which have half-lives on the order of tens of thousands of years or longer. Daughter products may have longer half-lives and/or greater radiation levels than their parent substances.
Busby also totally fails to mention the presence of extremely large quantities of plutonium in the Fukushima-Pacific cauldron; plutonium is THE most deadly substance known to exist, chemically and radio-logically. Around 7 kgs of plutonium is enough to deliver a lethal dose for every person alive now; by some estimates as much as thousands of kgs of plutonium have been released from Fukushima.
Busby also gives the impression that this disaster has run its course, that the total amount of radio-nuclides going into the ocean has already been delivered and is finite. He says that
"the catastrophe released less than 1017 Bq of these combined nuclides."
"Released." Past tense. Nothing could be further from the truth. The 'release' of these radio-nuclides is not only NOT over, it's on-going AND more is being created ALL THE TIME from a host of unknown and unknowable processes and weird synergisms happening within, around, and beneath the whole reactor complex at Fukushima. Elevated radio-xenon levels are being traced around the globe. X-ray emissions are detected coming out of the reactors. Molten corium blobs are encroaching on the huge undergound aquifer beneath the reactor site.
INCOMPREHENSIBLE RADIO-NUCLEAR STUFF IS HAPPENING ALL OVER THE PLACE IN THERE. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOING ON.
But ONE THING is for sure: the releases of radio-nuclides are by no means over.
Another 'error' or misrepresentation Busby makes is to look only at 'three medium-half-life nuclides of radio-logical significance' while ignoring or marginalizing the presence of, let's see, according to Gauld et al., there would be another 1,943 'nuclides of radio-logical significance' coming out of these reactors.
This is a MAJOR point of disinformation used by 'nuclear experts'...to talk only about Cesium-137 or Strontium-90...but totally fail to mention the thousands of other equally dangerous ones.
Dr. Alexey Yablokov, however, co-author of Chernobyl: Consequences for the People and the Environment, relates his observations of totally unexpected behaviours of isotopes of tellurium and americium, behaviours that place them in the biosphere at extremely dangerous levels for vast expanses of time.
Busby's figures reflect estimates of the total radiological components of the destroyed reactors, but do not include estimates of the radio-logical contents of the several spent fuel pools on site, which contain FAR greater quantities of radiation. Several were destroyed in the beginning, and it's possible that none are left intact at this time. Where has all the radiation gone? Right...into the ocean.
Worst of all, Busby's report leaves the uneducated with the impression that, hey, the greater the dilution, the safer it is. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Dr. Linus Pauling & Petkau Effect
I strongly recommend that you educate yourselves about the Petkau effect.
"In 1972, a researcher in Canada, Dr. Abram Petkau, found that when cells were irradiated slowly, a smaller total dose was needed to cause damage. Since this critical discovery it has been verified that a small dose of radiation over a long time is more damaging than one larger dose...Dr. Ernest Sternglass, retired Emeritus Professor of Radiological Physics at the University of Pittsburgh and a pioneering researcher in the field of radiation health, explains in his 1978 book Secret Fallout the implications of this new understanding: 'Doses of radiation delivered slowly and continuously over extended periods of time are hundreds of times as damaging biologically as short, high intensity exposures of the same total dose. This was made clear in 1972 by Dr. Abram Petkau who discovered that at low doses of radiation absorbed at low rates, the dominant biological damage is produced by highly toxic molecules called free radicals.'
A 1966 report by the Atomic Energy Commission, The Genetic Effects of Radiation, concluded 'there is no threshold on the genetic effect of radiation. There is no safe level of radiation insofar as genetic effects are concerned.' "
In the legendary words of my great mate Craig Liddell...SAY NO MORE!
We somehow think that if we can't see, hear, smell or feel something, that it has no effect on us, whether we're talking about chemicals, micro-waves or radio-nuclides. In the same way, we think that even if we are exposed to these things, if we don't die immediately then no harm was done. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Humans of today are EXPERIMENTS IN MUTATION...biologically, psychologically, spiritually. Few of us alive now can truly qualify as 'people' any more; dolphins have just been declared to be 'people' in India.
And look at what we're doing to the people of the sea...the REAL 'people' of Mother Earth. New agers are worried about captivity and whales-as-meat issues, but those of us with enough scientific back-ground and willingness to educate ourselves and train our spirits to stomach REALITY know about the far greater dangers to cetaceans from naval sonars and seismic exploration technologies.
Even these global threats pale, however, compared to the ubiquitous lethality and worse, mutagenicity, of the astronomical quantities of synthetic radio-nuclides saturating the entire biosphere of Mother Earth, most notably, the global ocean which is home to the vast majority of all life on this planet.
Ironically, right along with the elevated publicity of Fukushima ocean contamination, and on the Hiroshima-Nagasaki anniversaries, it looks like Israel has actually used tactical nuclear weapons on Syria. To the uneducated, this might seem like a new threshold that was crossed. The reality, however, is that nuclear war began in 1945 and has been raging ever since.
After sharing the 'dilution solution', Dr. Chris Busby assures us that "...the people in California can relax."
As if they've just taken an over-dose of sleeping pills, just in time to celebrate the crowning achievement of homo sapiens, 'man, the wise.'
