Dr Helen Caldicott: The Reality of the Fukushima Disaster

Dr Helen Caldicott is an Australian physician and author, but more importantly an anti-nuclear campaigner. This video was given in Canada for the News Media and was seen on the Jack Blood show.

In it, she explains the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster and puts into plain English the facts behind the numbers that are wantonly thrown around by the mainstream media.

Though, I personally don’t want to be really ‘doomsday’ about my blog or my personal prepping, these facts need to be heard as they show the arrogance of the scientific class and the hubris of the human race in general.

“For me, I feel like being prepared for a natural disaster primarily is just being responsible,” said Jason Pedwell, a manager in a legal services company from Sammamish, who admits he falls under the title “prepper,” but said he doesn’t often advertise it.”

“I think if there’s any place in the world that was well prepared, even perhaps more prepared than we are here (the US – Ed), it’s Japan. They have a strong infrastructure, and this place, they had cities wiped off the map. Seventeen- thousand people died, a million and a half people were displaced for months without food and water. Fortunately, the world sort of rallied together and supported that effort,” said Pedwell.
