Dr Scampa’s Lethal Doses Count Increases Dramatically

 

by Bob Nichols

 

(San Francisco) – The world’s second big nuclear disaster occurred at Chernobyl Reactor No. 4 in the Ukraine on Apr 26, 1986. Simply tagged as “Chernobyl,” it is what the next big and well known nuke disaster, after the American Three Mile Island, on March 28, 1979 came to be called. “Chernobyl” ejected 30% of one 192-ton, three-month old reactor core. That’s 57.6 radioactive tons thrown into the air by fire and explosions.

The tiny radioactive and burning smoke particles have traveled around the world many times since 1979, killing an estimated one million people to date from radiation caused illnesses and cancers. This is according to Editor Dr Janette Sherman’s exhaustive and widely acclaimed book on 5,000 Chernobyl scientific papers recently published by the New York Academy of Sciences [1].

Fukushima Daiichi Equals 50 Plus Chernobyls

As Dr. Michio Kaku, a world renowned CUNY theoretical physicist pointed out on CNN March 18, 2011, Chernobyl involved one reactor and only 57.6 Tons of the reactor core went into the atmosphere. In dramatic contrast, the Fukushima Daiichi disaster immediately involved six reactors and a whopping IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency, a UN Agency) documented 2,800 Tons of highly radioactive old reactor cores.

Simple division tells us there are at least 48.6 Chernobyls in the burning old reactor cores pumping fiery isotopes into the Earth’s atmosphere. It is no stretch to say Fukushima Daiichi’s six reactors and the dry holding pools for old reactor cores are equal to more than 50 Chernobyl disasters.

Further clarification is needed, of course, and it is being worked out now by independent physicists. Note that the lethality of radioactive reactor cores goes up the first 250,000 years they are out of the reactor – not down.

Looking at the current Japanese meltdown as more than 50 Chernobyls is just the start. In addition, the fate of the four nearby reactors at Fukushima Daini is as yet unknown by the outside world. Working at the nearby reactors, only 10 km (6 miles away) is a quick, painful death sentence. They are inside the mandatory evacuation zone.

This much is known. All radioactive exposures are cumulative for each human, animal and plant. What’s more, mutated genetic codes are passed on to offspring forever. This means all Japanese and all Northern Hemisphere inhabitants are suffering internal radioactive contamination from Fukushima Daiichi reactors already.

Fukushima Equals 3,000 Billion Lethal Doses

Dr Paolo Scampa, a widely know EU Physicist, single handedly popularized the easily understood Lethal Doses concept. “Lethal Doses” is a world wide, well  understood idea that strips Physics bare and offers a brilliant, understandable  explanation for all the physics gobbledygook Intelligence agencies and their respective governments use to disguise the brutal truths of the Fukushima Daiichi Disaster.

Fukushima from 21,000 ft TKY

Three thousand billion (3,000,000,000,000) Lethal Doses of Radiation means there are 429 Lethal Doses chasing each and every one of us on the planet, to put it in a nutshell. This is up from about 70 Billion Lethal Doses March 23, 2011. It is getting worse everyday without any intervention by the US and the other nuclear powers.

VeteransToday calls on the world’s nuclear powers to intervene sooner rather than later. It is up to the world’s only remaining Super Power, the United States, to get the Japan Reactor Disaster Intervention meeting officially underway.

The Fukushima Kill

The Fukushima Kill, already underway world wide, will certainly dwarf that of Chernobyl. All US Super Power President Obama’s delay does is increase the  numbers of The Kill. That is a clear Choice. We call on President Obama to re-visit that Choice.

Further, the Genetic and DNA changing aspects of the radioactivity now in the air, spreading worldwide within a year, will spawn a grotesque new assortment of radiation-degraded mutants; both human and of other life forms.

Many of these creatures in the animal world will not survive long outside the womb, if carried to term.  What’s more, future Human Genetic Mutants of ever-lower intelligence and greater, more grotesque physical deformities are the genetic legacy of Humanity forevermore. That is the new starting point for any rational and reality-based national or foreign policy.

What We Know Now about Fukushima

Here is what is known more than 75 days after six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Reactor Plant started a disastrous and lethal nuclear meltdown on March 11, 2011.

– March 11, 14:46, a One Million Kiloton Earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter Scale hammered Japan off-shore near the six Japanese reactors. The reactors attempted to shut down automatically when electronic sensors detected the earthquake. The huge earthquake dropped the reactors three feet, moved Japan 8 inches to the West and altered the tilt of the Axis of planet Earth.

– March 11, about 15:30, the giant Earthquake caused a tsunami up to 30 meters (98.4 Ft) high washed away all the fuel tanks for the reactors Emergency Generators and all the reactors’ outside electrical feeds. This was the Death Blow to the reactors.

The six Fukushima Daiichi reactors were dead in the water and their fate sealed. Without an external source of electricity for the water pumps and hot reactors, they are just so much radioactive scrap iron – good for nothing. The internal temperature of the reactors started climbing immediately.

– March 11, about 18:00, only two and a half hours later, multiple reactor cores started melting down as the reactors internal temperatures skyrocketed to the melting point of uranium and beyond – a measured 1,718 Deg C (3,124.4 Deg F) past the melting point.

Uranium melts at 1,132.2 Deg C (2,069.9 Deg F.) The internal reactor temperatures reached at least 2,850 Deg C, (5,162 Deg F.) The millions of 1 mm Uranium fuel pellets in the reactors and in the core pools had no defense at all without the powerful water pumps and billions of gallons of cooling water against those temperatures.

The Uranium pellets simply melted forming a white hot lava-like radioactive uranium isotope blob that was and probably still is super heated by the power of the uranium atom itself. The highly radioactive blob then burned through the high temperature steel around the graphite seals of the General Electric Mark 1 Reactor Control Rods at the bottom of the American submarine based reactor design of US Navy Admiral Hyman Rickover, now deceased.

General Electric copied the US Government financed Navy nuclear reactor design for many commercial nuclear reactors. The Radioactive Blobs trickled together to form a big,  highly radioactive, burning lava blob like that of Chernobyl.

The Solution, Then and Now, has Changed

World famous theoretical physicist Dr. Michio Kaku caught the world’s attention on a March 18, 2011 CNN broadcast when he suggested the Prime Minister of Japan immediately choose the “Chernobyl Option” for the Fukushima Daiichi General Electric reactors.

Kaku said the Japanese PM should order the Japanese Air Self Defense Force to bomb the reactors into submission with boron, sand, water and concrete like the Red Army did to kill the out-of-control Chernobyl reactor on orders of USSR President Gorbachev. Boron absorbs neutrons, the radioactive heart of the reactors.

The time for Dr. Kaku’s “Chernobyl Option” has passed. Multiple explosions destroyed the reactors and the swimming pools holding old reactor cores weeks ago. Hundreds to thousands of tons of burning highly radioactive reactor cores are scattered all over the Fukushima Daiichi site. The reactors are releasing as much as a Tepco (Tokyo Electric Power Company) measured 10 Quadtrillion (10,000 Trillion Bq) radioactive counts per second of deadly radioactive smoke particles into the Earth’s atmosphere.

The invisible, killing Radioactive Smoke is already all over the Northern Hemisphere and everyone in it – each and every one – is radiologically contaminated. The scope of Dr. Kaku’s once brilliant former solution is unfortunately, now too small and ineffective.

Generally speaking, most Radiation cannot escape into the atmosphere if it is covered by water. Honshu, Japan is an island and the Pacific Ocean is conveniently located nearby.

Subsidence charges from multiple nuclear weapons buried by drilling rigs 500 ft (152.4 meters)  below and inland of the string of six reactors must be engineered to slide the reactors into the sea. This method works best if there is igneous or volcanic rock behind the subsidence charges, to “bounce” the blast and pressure wave from and “push” the trashed reactors area of the beachfront into the sea.

Specially equipped submarines can then pick up the pieces of reactor cores from under water. The surface of the ocean blocks the escape of radiation. The submarines must work fast to limit killing more of the Earth’s Oceans.

Veterans Today calls on President Obama to authorize the disposal of the six reactors at sea and the collection of the deadly radioactive metals with submarines. We conclude there are no other options left.

The “Do Nothing Option”


The “Do Nothing Option” allows the deaths and maiming of many millions of people to rapidly proceed. Doing nothing, by default, allows the Fukushima Kill to ruthlessly continue unabated. Doing nothing is also not acceptable from a practical standpoint; because, Japan does not own the nuclear weapons to use themselves.

Nuke the reactors at Fukushima Daiichi right into the sea, Mr. President.

“This is a collection of papers translated from the Russian with some revised and updated contributions. Written by leading authorities from Eastern Europe, the volume outlines the history of the health and environmental consequences of the Chernobyl disaster. Although there has been discussion of the impact of nuclear accidents and Chernobyl in particular, never before has there been a comprehensive presentation of all the available information concerning the health and environmental effects of the low dose radioactive contaminants, especially those emitted from the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Official discussions from the International Atomic Energy Agency and associated United Nations’ agencies (e.g. the Chernobyl Forum reports) have largely downplayed or ignored many of the findings reported in the Eastern European scientific literature and consequently have erred by not including these assessments.”

Corporate tax rate likely to be reduced, BUSINESS TIMES

Business Times (Malaysia) September 10, 2003 | Kang Siew Li 00-00-0000 COMPANIES can look forward to a cut in corporate tax as the present rate is no longer competitive, according to the Malaysian Institute of Taxation (MIT). The tax cut is likely, along with increases in personal reliefs and rebates in Budget 2004 to be tabled on Friday, said MIT’s vice-president Dr Veerinderjeet Singh. Veerinderjeet thinks Budget 2004 will include a reduction in corporate tax because the present 28 per cent rate is no longer deemed competitive.

The last reduction was for the 1998 assessment year. Since then, many countries around the world have been actively reducing their corporate tax rates in order to compete for foreign investment. Veerinderjeet said the tax changes are essential to keep Malaysia competitive in the long term and to attract companies to locate in the country. “We are aware that the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) will be concerned about the shortfall in tax collection resulting from the corporate tax cut. Thus, we should work towards a gradual reduction of the rate. “For example, reduce it by one percentage point each year over the next three years until it reaches what we consider to be ideal – 25 per cent,” Veerinderjeet told Business Times. Nonetheless, statistics have shown that in the mid-1990s, when the corporate tax rate was reduced by 4 per cent within two years, there was an improvement in the total Federal Government revenue collected from corporations and an increase in gross domestic product in the context of a growing economy. in our site corporate tax rate

“Given the current economic scenario, which is showing signs of improvement, obviously it will attract new investments and encourage foreign corporations to locate in Malaysia, thus spurring the economy. A reduction in the corporate tax rate will in fact bring an increase in the total revenue collected,” said Veerinderjeet. MIT submitted in May this year a pre-Budget memorandum to the Finance Ministry, recommending a reduction in the corporate tax rate from the present level of 28 per cent to 25 per cent. It believes that the lowering of the corporate tax rate can provide the impetus for locally-driven growth. This will lead to the collection of more taxes by the Government, and in time to come, the country will become more self-reliant and its growth will be less dependent on external factors. Veerinderjeet also sees Budget 2004 as an election budget – it will have something for the man on the street. “The Government can address this in two ways. Firstly, by granting a reduction in personal income tax. However, if you were to look at the trend in the past, the Government tends to cut the corporate tax rate first and personal income tax rate the following year. “It is therefore unlikely that we will see a reduction in both corporate and personal tax rates this year,” explained Veerinderjeet. However, an increase in personal reliefs and rebates looks more likely. “For example, in 1998, in a move to promote the acquisition of personal computers and computer literacy, the Government allowed an individual a single tax rebate of RM400 once every five years. We have proposed that the rebate be increased to RM1,000 and an individual be allowed to claim the rebate once every two years,” said Veerinderjeet. He added that other personal rebates which may see changes include that for the purchase of books and materials as well as personal reliefs on insurance premiums and contributions to Employees Provident Fund. Veerinderjeet expects Budget 2004 to also look at the small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Last year, the corporate tax rate was reduced to 20 per cent on the first RM100,000 of chargeable income for SMEs with a paid-up capital of less than RM2.5 million. “Unfortunately, that did not help the SMEs much because the actual tax savings were only some RM8,000. The general feeling about the reduction was that it was more of a token by the Government to show that it is aware of their contribution and is trying to help them. “Thus, in order to further promote the growth of SMEs, we feel that the threshold for the 20 per cent tax rate should be increased to RM500,000,” said Veerinderjeet. Another aspect which the Budget 2004 may look at is how the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (Mida) can help generate or create more interest in Malaysia. Veerinderjeet pointed out that it is about time that Mida changes from a processing centre into a one-stop marketing centre. here corporate tax rate

    Bob, it can only serve to embarrass you personally and erode your credibility to front for the now totally discredited VT = gatekeeper for the powers which have thought through and implemented this mass genocidal “accident” which keeps on giving. I use that word (discredited) advisedly, and knowing that you are a competent researcher, suggest you do your own D D to understand why…that is if you yourself are still not one of the coopted. Infinite respect for your personal integrity and wisdom, I’ve just seen too many good folks go down too soon in the last few months. If you trust your own instincts for survival(we all have em, but few of us use em!) you will know I’m telling you the truth. Find a new venue, and set yu self free mon!

      Interesting observation pieman,

      The Department of Energy, DOE, is a purposeful mis-labeling by the US Government. About two thirds of their budget is for the care and feeding of thermonuclear weapons. That is what they actually do, most of the time. The so-called “green” stuff is just a fig leaf to confuse the easily mislead. DOE is just a budgetary adjunct to the DOD, formerly known as the US War Department.

      Ever since September, 1945, when the War Department and the New York Times conspired with the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab to simply lie about the recent Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 12 NYT articles claiming “radiation does not exist,” the lying game has become more complex.

      Now the DOE/DOD/CIA Livermore group have whole buildings full of people maintaining and repairing the lie. You all see how well they have done papering over the GE reactors in US submarines and at Fukushima Daiichi.

      One of the many lies propagated by this group is that a little radiation is good for you. It is “needed” ‘cos hundreds of thousands of Americans work for DOE, the Nuke Labs, DOD and universities in the so-called “nuclear cycle.” The unfortunate folk need to think that what they are doing for a living will not doom human life on Earth.

      They are entitled to their delusion.

      You, and all the Veterans Today commenters and readers out there get to choose which to read and believe. I encourage you all to do your own research.

The whole thing is making me start to hum the chorus to the original anthem of alternative disinfo by the talmudist troubador hisself! Like a ro-oll-in stone…..

But that’s not all!
      Nooooo, Litton was also into bioweaponry in a big way, partnering with the US government in running Ft Detrick lab work that would produce the weapons of mass Afrikan genocide latter to be falsely blamed on little green monkeys. And a plethora of other designer diseases. Seems kinda strange that they wouldn’t have their fingerprints all over something like HAARP as well, but maybe there are still some more skeletons in the Litton closet! Also strange is the way the timeline of Litton and the career of Robby(Dylan) Zimmerman have paralleled – another of the icons of the new crew here at VT…what’s that, Bob’s playing tel aviv soon?

    Another reason why humans will be extinct in the future, they haven’t the ability to plan for worse case scenarios. So clearly it’s only a matter of time, and error.

    And you will discover in these worse case scenarios, outside assistance is often turned away. Do intelligent societies work in this way? We spend more time working against each other, then working with each other. Right or Wrong?

      Hi OS,

      Thinking about what you said and the assumption it makes and I disagree. In fact, Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, the UC-Berkeley, the DOD, US Intelligence Agencies, the NRC and the NYTimes have thought long and hard about these questions ever since TMI and Chernobyl.

      The massive, coordinated news suppression and replacement with happy-go-lucky make believe “success” stories is part of the effort. They planned for the next nuclear disaster alright; but, they carefully planned how to deny it, not fix it.

      Veterans Today’s proposal to use subsidence charges to get the reactors under water and the use of submarines to retrieve the reactor cores and fuel rods remain the only solution on the table.

      Bob,

      I am only stating that when any project is proposed, it should be studied for worse case scenarios, before approval. So the question becomes, who is part of this approval process and what are the risk?

      I am Senior Engineer, may I review the documents submitted for these projects and assess the risk associated and possible failures? The action and contingency plans? I wish to assess the study performed prior to implementation, and plans for worse case scenarios? And who are the responsible parties. Was there known risk here?

      Where are these documents? Risk is reduced through liability, so how are these projects being approved?

      I understand people are making attempts to get involved, but the problem is people in the decision making process. Their risk is limited because their liability is being minimized.

      When profit out weights the risk, and decisions are made in different areas, and in many directions. Who is coordinating the possible affects of all?

      An example, what would be the result at large construction site, if no one coordinated each of the contract companies performing work in different areas? Our world is a large construction site.

      When profit out weighs risk, and minimized through liability, this creates scenarios that can result in uncontrollable outcomes. Too many bad decision makers, too many directions, and too many attempts to make maximum profit quickly.

      This will create the potential for large worse case scenarios, but then you are observing the outcomes as they unfold.

      You are observing societies of people who have extreme difficulty planning for the future, and this potentially means no future.

      When fast profits out weigh risks, there’s minimal planning.

      And thinking long and hard about something, doesn’t prevent something. It’s associated with potential risk, and whose making the decisions about these risk.

      Now excuse me, I need to re-heat my tea with a blow torch.

    • OS  June 8, 2011 at 9:55 am

      Forgive me Bob,

      But agencies don’t impress me, only actions, and the result of these actions.

      Are you aware the first production electric car was being manufacturer over one hundred years ago? Ask yourself a simple question, “Are you really living in a more efficient environment or the deception of being more efficient, but in reality less efficient?”

      Less efficient, higher profits, higher risk…..does this make sense?
