  1. Way to go Jim! Thank you for starting this! It will become a much-needed database. Your documentation in The Corbett Report is what sets it part from all other websites. Can’t count the hours I spent in the ‘early days’ using those links to do my own research.

    • I have been looking for a site like this for years. Google, in their infinite wisdom finally put this at the top of my search results, I am going to promote this website on my Face Book page “Church of the Apocalypse” (It’s not what it sounds like, I am trying to insert some humor noir into a bleak situation). I am also trying to raise money through my Fukashima Awareness Fund on Gofundme.

  2. Nuclear News Now may be useful to you as a news source for your posts

  3. Thank you so much Mr.Corbett for doing this. I’ve been wondering what had happened to the
    Fukushima Daiichi power plant, since the beginning of the meltdown. I haven’t seen anything on CNN or other major television news programs.

  4. I Hope this does turn into a site where we can find the truth and only the truth. Not some wild speculations purporting to be the truth. I am not against honest speculation, just someone making up wild what ifs that have NO basis in fact or good probability based on known physics. Let us all remember that until everything is opened up and cleaned out,we can not know for certain exactly what happened and when. And it is up to everyone who writes on here to help keep everything including speculation honest and truthful, so that the readers will not be confused or needlessly frightened. Stephen W. Anderle

  5. Sei miliardi di persone erano d’accordo con il disastro nucleare come a cernobil. I bambini devono saperlo.

  6. The US and Japan Government both should be shitting their pants right now! And they are but not because their scared that we the American People will not tolerate our own country back stabbing us and leaving us for dead. That is the truth people! That is the unfortunate reality. Our own country is letting us be murdered by incompetent Japanese Govt. So therefor, inevitably our whole country IS faced with EXTREME amounts of radiation poison (SICKNESS&DEATH) πŸ™ RIGHT NOW and for millions of years to come!

    As an activist for all life, love and justice, may it be remembered wisely said from none other than Bob Marley himself, “Get up! Stand up!, Stand up for your rights! Get up! Stand up! Don’t give up the fight!!!!””

    More people should be showing there concern and show that their not just going to sit back while we need our governments help to help defend Americans from Japan’s mistake! Make our Government do their actual damn jobs!!! Work for and be the voice of the people!!!!

    But in order for our govt to be a voice for US, WE the people, NEED AND HAVE to make our voice be heard to them!!!! Who’s in?

    Its been 2 years of RADIATION POISONING flowing into our Pacific Ocean and our Govt hast said shit to us about it! Why?! B/c they don’t want there to be a enormous economic crisis on their hands…again! Too late! What’s going on in Japan and our Pacific Ocean is going to have an extreme negative affects on us indefinitely! Especially the USA!! Poisoning, sickness, human, animal and plant abnormalities, diseases, death are just some of the few, πŸ™

    Please dear Father God, help the people see and help them make a change and a difference for the better. Father God, help them stand up for themselves. In Christ Jesus name I always pray. Amen.

    • It was not a surprise to get to the end if your conspiracy theory riddled post to find an incantation to your special magical friend. Is your divine maniac so weak-minded that your begging him will sway him from his perfect plan?
      So sad that humans still believe this twaddle.

      • No, what’s sad is that someone would bother to attack someone else for expressing their personal belief in a god.

        So, you must know something not another human in the world knows, Denny. Aren’t you just the special one. Pathetic.

    • Well, I guess I must have an assbackwards mind . But it seems to me that WE designed, sold, approved location, etc of all of these plants in harms way. That’s right the good ol USA. Seems you have some sort of mental block to that reality. By the way your heavenly father, god, dog, whatever ain’t gonna do squat. Unfortunately, we are the common denominator in almost all of these ill fated facilities. Stop blaiming the poor Japanese as we are the pushers, profiteers in this case.

      • 50 years ago.

  7. This event is affecting us as a species, the entire world should be focused on this right now.

    Also, this page needs a “share” button..

  8. Thanks for continuing to keep us informed. We really appreciate it.

  9. Being in the fishing business,,I need the straight scoop on the long term effects on the pacific ocean.

    • Miniscule. If you’re a fisherman you’ll see a billion times more impact from the mindlessly reckless trawling of the Pacific together with coral bleaching will cause the extinction of a large number of species within decades, and with it most of the fishers of the four continents.

  10. I’m glad that I’m not the only person trying to keep the record straight with what’s going on at and around Fukushima Daiichi. Your latest post concerning the steam occasionally wafting from unit #3 is spot-on. I’ll be giving your post credit in my Fukushima Accident Update on Monday. http://www.hiroshimasyndrome.com/fukushima-accident-updates.html

    • Following the link led me to a site claiming to contain ‘no spin’ , just the news reproduced.
      What a con.
      Look at the personal commentary of the independent report.
      It’s not the only one.
      I bet the author would replicate burgergate when that guy ate a burger pretending not to worry about mad cow disease.

      I’d pay good money to see the author eat fish or other seafood from the nearest claimed ‘safe to eat’ zone of the Pacific around Fukushima Bay.

    After reading above I’m trying to figure how it meshes with:

    From the video: “We we’re going to go down there and test but…we didn’t have to.”
    Talk about time I’ll never get back. Stay classy.

  12. Kindly note that Debbie’s link above is expired, instead this one is working… at present!

    The pdf is of 28.9 MB, 445 pages, dated on 2014-02-03 with md5 hash tag: ad742e6cd5827322bfcf80eeabc80cfe

    Hi Debbie, i highly appreciate the huge pdf πŸ™‚ thanks a lot, definitely will spread a word on it

    I second to Debbie’s wish that Fukushima Update will cover this document. Thanks.

    ps. Zero Hedge has following latest coverage on Fukushima:

  13. I believe this website absolutely crucial to the global community because of the silence, propaganda, or misinformation of the agenda driven complicit.
    What is most astounding to me is how unaware the majority of peeps seem to be about a crisis with the potential to become a catastrophe of almost biblical proportions.
    How can denial or ignorance, or suicidal obliviousness be this pervasive?
    Please continue your wonderful reporting………
    Best Regards
    Diego

  14. This 15 min film says a lot:
    Marc* the Arcturian UNPlugged: Fukushima 2014 – “The BIG Picture”
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsc5ENLjaeM
    I think they should show this in every school in America.
    …of course I made it.

  15. There is a tested and proven solution to treat such a contaminted water without generating any additional sludge. It has been already tested @ nuclear certified laboratory. Test results are now disclosed.
    See the following CCN iReport about it:
    http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1045751

  16. After CNN iReport article ( http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-1045751 ) someone else is reacting to advise about the new Technology by WOW Technology Inc. that is able to offer a SUPER decontamination performance for removing radioactive isotopes from water without generating any sludge.

    It is the Bouletin of French ministery for Foreign affairs:

    http://www.bulletins-electroniques.com/actualites/75599.htm

    This Technology would allow a better cooling for those metdown rectors at Fukushima Daiichi and prevent additional problems.
    I hope that news will be spreaded all around the world.
    as it is a great news and a glimmer of hope.

  17. Useful site. Appreciate unbiased information and broad range of views.

    Visitors to Fukushima Update.com may find the Alsos Digital Library for Nuclear Issues (http://alsos.wlu.edu) to be useful. It contains over 3300 vetted, indexed, annotations for references on a broad range of nuclear topics.

    • Thankyou Frank Settle πŸ™‚ VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.
      What an amazing resource – have shared the link.

  18. I live in the San Francisco Bay area. Recently, I took a day trip out to the beautiful half moon bay beach area. San Gregorio state beach to be specific. There I found a new sign posted that I haven’t noticed before. It warns the public not to eat any seafood harvested there. It does not mention radiation but we know that’s the case. The thing I cannot stand by is t he fact that our government, the home of the free to pursue our right to happiness is keeping the simple truth from us. As a result we are not given a choice to decide. They are enforcing ignorance and trying to distract us from the truth with non issues like sars and Ebola.
    It’s truly ridiculous how our country is being lead by the money hungry blind ass u ming that we can be herded toward our own deaths through propaganda.
    It’s time to wake up and smell the radiation my intelligent, beautiful peoples.
    the least we can do is spread the truth so we can decide with the right information.

  19. In the USA the medical insurance companies have made radiation exposure an illness they will not pay medical costs of. I guess they know whats coming
    k

  20. Hi, don’t know if you know this but it looks like your website has been hacked? Some articles’ names have been changed to spammy ones about Viagra, also a line at the bottom of the page on it too.
    Great site, hope you get that fixed soon πŸ™‚
