Fukushima: one year later and Gulf of Mexico: almost 2 years later

Blogman's Notes:

Though the 2011 Fukushima disaster as well as the 2010 Gulf of Mexico disaster have pretty much vanished from the headlines, the effects of these disasters will last for years if not decades and centuries. Though the mainstream claims that the GOM BP oil well Horizon problem has been permanently fixed, there is much evidence to the contrary. Similarly though the Fukushima story is not headlines, it does not mean that the problem has been resolved or will ever be resolved. We do not know for sure how disastrous the environmental impact of the GOM will be but the effects of Fukushima are more obvious and measurable. Fukushima is like a continuous low yield Nuclear attack upon Japan and the world, and its cancerous effects will be felt for years to come if not for many lifetimes. Recently it was revealed that the Japanese had made plans to evacuate Tokyo when the tsunami hit Fukushima and destroyed the Nuclear plants there a year ago. So the possibility that the disaster would be of such a great magnitude as to render most of Japan uninhabitable was considered by the authorities in Japan. The question that remains to be answered is why were these plans not implemented? What was done, and is being done to render Japan safe from the radiation that continues to spew from the plants in Fukushima? The answer is that nothing has been done to stop the radiation, so it is logical to conclude that radiation is spewing constantly across the Northern Hemsiphere and slowly making it's way down to the Southern. And we keep being told that SUVs burning ultra clean gasoline is problem! O what a twisted web we weave when first we practice to deceive, and boy the Powers that Be are Masters of Deception! Do they deceive themselves too or do have plans to keep themselves safe even as the world slowly disintegrates from a 1000 deep, cancerous cuts from Nuclear plants radiation, from depleted uranium weapons, from chemicals in food and water, and a 1000 other toxins that permeate our environment from pole to pole and all points in between. 

From The Telegraph

Ayumi Yanagisawa, a correspondent for the Japanese broadcaster NHK, was working in a tiny seaside town when the earthquake hit. Her first instinct was to pick up her camera.

Stationed at the national broadcaster's Ishinomaki headquarters in Miyagi prefecture, the reporter was working in Ogatsu on the north east coast of Japan when disaster struck on March 11 2011.
It would be days before she was able to contact her bosses at NHK's regional headquarters in Sendai during which time Ms Yanagisawa captured both the full force of the devastating earthquake and tsunami as well as the subsequent fight for the survival.
Picking up her camera as she felt the tremors from the 9.0 magnitude earthquake, the 25-year old filmed scarcely believable scenes as she made it to higher ground and recorded the resultant tsunami laying waste to the seaside town.

In June of 2010, BP officials admitted to damage beneath the seafloorunder BP’s Gulf Macondo well.
We have repeatedly noted that the Macondo oil reservoir may still be leaking.
American reporter Dahr Jamail reports in a must-read article at Al Jazeera:
Al Jazeera has spotted a large oil sheen near the infamous Macondo 252 well.

In September 2011, Al Jazeera spotted a large swath of silvery oil sheen located roughly 19km northeast of the now-capped well.

But now, on February 29, Al Jazeera conducted another over-flight of the area and found a larger area of sea covered in oil sheen in the same location.
