Full Meltdown At Fukushima: Radiation Levels In Nearby Seawater At 3,000 Times Above Normal

Had you read this description of what actually happened during one of the Fukushima reactor explosions ANYWHERE in the USA mainstream media?

UK Nuclear Expert: “There were a huge number of spent fuel rods sitting on top of the reactor, so when it exploded, and everybody saw it exploding, all those fuel rods went up in the air. And as we now know, it has melted down.”

3.31 2011 Update:

ALERT: Dangerous levels of radiation are now escaping the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant and in Tokyo and northeastern Japan residents are being warned to stay indoors on 3.31.2011, and NOT to drink the tap water, or bathe in it. There is such a scarcity of news on this issue in the USA that I would venture to call it a virtual “news blackout” on how much radiation is now passing over the continental US. The weather website WoWeather.com indicates that plumes reaching US shores and washing over the mainland have tiny to negligible levels of radioactive material.

But those living in Japan near the Fukushima Plant, up to a 50 mile radius at least, should remain indoors on 3.31.2011.

News from Japan about the progress of the clean up after recent Fukushima tsunami related nuclear accidents and explosions is mixed, and often conflicting. Here is the latest, compiled from diverse sources. This post will be updated throughout the day, so visit the page and reload for the latest news.

Japan Official: “We Are Not Able To Measure The Amount of Radiation Coming From Fukushima Nuclear Plant”

The sparsity of actual solid news reporting by American media outlets on the emerging radioactive aftermath of multiple Fukushima Reactor explosions has distressed the American public, further it’s made “breaking news reports” more urgently needed from competent bloggers and online alternative news outlets.

While the mainstream American media has now moved on to renewed interest in their more routine topics such as Libya, US politics,  Hollywood et al,  successive waves of incoming weather set adrift by the constant pacific jet stream have suddenly become urgent topics of news and commentary for Americans, especially those on the west coast. You tube reporters working from home have made constant and valuable contributions to our understanding of what is taking place, and it’s now becoming clear that soon the so called “alternative” news media, may in fact become THE FUTURE of news media.

While “We the People” press on, slowly taking back their country, a NEW news media that supports and actually follows and listens to “We the People” is now emerging with them. With one eye on the post I am always writing, and another on what Big Media is doing, I have been incredulous as I watched in recent days while Big Media moved on from the Japan disaster, minimizing and mostly ignoring the concerns of American families, who still wonder how safe our own air is in the wake of multiple explosions at Fukushima.   In contrast I have watched brilliant citizen journalism explode out of nowhere, as more alternative news media sources sprang to life with hourly updates, videos showing USA Geiger counter reports, and up-to-date jet stream data.

This point was driven home tonight when I innocently ran a Google search, looking to see if any new earthquakes had hit Japan in the past 24 hours.  It was my own web portal, Alternative News Forum, that came up number 1 in the search results. I’m definitely pleased to be #1 in the results, but it does make me wonder: where are the reporters who should be writing about the ongoing radiation issues surrounding the collapsing Fukushima Reactor complex?

When a part time home based news blogger hits number one in the search results for news about earthquakes in Japan and jet stream radiation reports, shouldn’t we all be really worried about the lack of reporting on this issue?  I’m not ready to speak the dreaded phrase “news blackout” because it’s just too insane to even consider. But why are there so few American media outlets reporting hourly on this situation in the United States?
