Japan, US Move to Expand Nuclear Power Programs Despite Contamination at Fukushima & New Mexico

Published on Feb 26, 2014

Japan has announced a major push to revive its nuclear energy program, just weeks before the third anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. This comes just a week after it was revealed about 100 tons of highly radioactive water have leaked from one of the hundreds of storage tanks at the Fukushima nuclear power plant. Here in the United States, the Obama administration announced last week it approved $6.5 billion in loan guarantees to back construction of the country’s first new nuclear power plant in more than 30 years. This comes as a nuclear waste disposal site is set to reopen in New Mexico following an unexplained leak of radioactive material.

Shinzo Abe’s Rightward Shift to Militarism, Secrecy in Fukushima’s Wake


freespeechtv

Published on Jan 15, 2014

At a critical time for Japan and the region, DN! looks at the country’s rightward political shift under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was re-elected just over a year ago. As head of the Liberal Democratic Party, Abe is known as a conservative hawk who has pushed nationalistic and pro-nuclear policies. In December, he visited the controversial Yasukuni war shrine, which honors Japanese soldiers who died in battle, including several war criminals who were tried by the International Military Tribunal after World War II. The visit sparked outrage from China and South Korea, who consider the shrine a symbol of Japanese militarism and its refusal to atone for atrocities committed in the first half of the 20th century. We speak about Japan’s increasingly pro-nuclear, nationalistic stance with Koichi Nakano, professor at Sophia University in Tokyo and director of the Institute of Global Concern.

Cover Up: What You Are Not Supposed to Know about Nuclear Power: Karl Grossman

You have not been informed about nuclear power. You have not been told. And that has been done on purpose. Keeping the pubilc in the dark was deemed necessary by the promoters of nuclear power if it was to succeed. Those in government, science and private industry who have been pushing nuclear power realized that if people were given the facts, if they knew the consequences of nuclear power, they would not stand for it.

If people knew that the kind of accidents that happened at Three Mile Island, at the Fermi Reactor, at Browns Ferry, at Windscale, at “SL-1,” among others — the sort of huge catastrophes which have been only barely avoided — are to be expected, they’d be damned upset and would insist a stop be put to nuclear power. So an army of public relations practicioners has been working for decades to, in the jargon of the trade, make the people think of “Citizen Atom” as a friend, before the truth became manifest.

The “nuclear runaways” and “meltdowns,” the “China syndrome” would come, it was figured. So would the “routine” releases of radiation from nuclear plants — and their results: cancer, leukemia and genetic injury. Also to be expected were illness, injury and death in connection with mining, milling, fuel fabrication, transportation, reactor operation and storing waste — the basic steps of the entire nuclear “cycle.”

News Zero: The New York Times and the Bomb: Beverly Keever

How did a world class newspaper become little more than a propaganda outlet for the U.S. government in its drive to cover up the dangers of radioactivity emanating from the testing of nuclear weapons? And why is it still offering warped coverage of the issues 40 years after the end of nuclear tests above ground? Hiding nearly half of the tests from public view, The New York Times’ stories predated by more than 40 years its recent crisis of made-up stories by reporter Jayson Blair.

Reporter Beverly Keever takes you inside our most prestigious propaganda machine to show just how the Times covered up the reality from half lies with half truths to supplying a complete alternative framework to manufacture consent.

Chernobyl: A Million Casualties
A million people have died so far as a result of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant accident, explains Janette Sherman, M.D., toxicologist and contributing editor of the book Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment. Published by the New York Academy of Sciences, the book, authored by Dr. Alexey Yablokov, Dr. Vassily Nesterenko and Dr. Alexey Nesterenko, examined medical records now available–which expose as a lie the claim of the International Atomic Energy Commission that perhaps 4,000 people may die as a result of Chernobyl.

Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting or FAIR is the leading media watch group in the United States. Janine Jackson, program director of FAIR, discusses how corporate ownership impacts on media, stories that are neglected and under-reported — including the consequences of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster, the government’s “official agenda” and how media follow “Washington’s official line,” telecom policy and diversity in media. She outlines the activities of FAIR among them its magazine Extra! and radio program CounterSpin — and how people can support FAIR.
