The U.S. EPA is installing more air samplers around the shutdown Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in New Mexico. According to local news reports, the EPA now questions the reliability of air sampling radiation monitors around WIPP, so they are installing redundant monitors “to identify any needed improvements and ensure adequate monitoring.”

The special investigation team has made two descents into WIPP, and a third is planned for 10 April. They set up a command base near the plutonium and americium leak, they claim they detected no high radiation levels. Samples have been sent to the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) in eastern Idaho. The INL is also the site of the World’s first deadly nuclear reactor accident (EBR-1).
In Japan, Tokyo Electric Power Company has revealed that there is not enough storage space for all the nuclear waste that will be generated while ‘decommissioning’ the melted down Fukushima Daiichi!
TEPCo estimates 560-thousand cubic meters of waste over the next 13 years. They plan to burn about 340-thousand cubic meters of the nuke waste! But that will leave 220-thousand cubic meters with nowhere to go. TEPCo says all the storage being built now will hold only 160-thousand cubic meters, or about 200 olympic sized swimming pools worth.
Japan’s fishermen have agreed to TEPCo’s plan to reroute groundwater into the ocean, but now they’ve issued demands. The National Federation of Fisheries Cooperative Associations is demanding an independent third party to monitor the water release, and that the national government of Japan must finally take responsibility for what happens to the fishing industry.
More investigation into the U.S. taxpayer funded Department of Energy (DoE)/National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) radiation monitoring in Jamaica and Bahamas revealed that the program actually started between 2006-09, years before Fukushima Daiichi blew up!
At the Port of Kingston, in Jamaica, it is called the Radiation Detection Program, and it is actually part of the larger War on Terror known as Megaports Initiative: “President Obama has made an unprecedented commitment to preventing the threat of nuclear terrorism by securing dangerous nuclear and other radioactive materials and keeping those materials out of the hands of proliferators and terrorist organizations. This cooperation increases our capability to identify illicit shipments of special nuclear and other radioactive materials and bolsters the worldwide effort to prevent nuclear proliferation and terrorism.”-Ken Baker, NNSA
The Megaports Initiative involves at least 42 ports throughout Asia, Latin America, Caribbean, Europe, Middle East and Africa. The NNSA came to life after President Bill Clinton reluctantly approved it at the end of his term as regime leader (more than one year prior to the 11 September 2001 terror attacks in the U.S.).
In 2013 the NNSA, along with the International Atomic Energy Agency, began training ‘first responders’ from Armenia, Djibouti, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, under the Radiological Assistance Program Training for Emergency Response (I-RAPTER): “….joint training to ensure that more first responders have the capability to locate, characterize, identify and control nuclear and radioactive material.”-Joseph Krol, NNSA
Clearly your fearless leaders are expecting a some kind of nuclear attack! (was it on the missing MH370?)
Already companies are producing new dubious products to protect you from radiation.
An Israeli company is marketing a belt they claim can protect your entire body from gamma radiation! Company officials admitted that for their gamma radiation blocking material to really be effective they’d have to make a full body suit, however, it would weigh 200 kilos (441 pounds)!
The next dubious product is a bra made by a U.S. hazmat suit maker in Florida. They claim that by covering your boobs with their $69 bra your boobs are totally protected from radiation. The rest of your body is screwed! I guess vain women want their boobs to look good even if the rest of their body is ravaged by radiation contamination. By the way, the company refuses to guarantee that your boobs will not be irradiated while wearing the expensive bra.
