Nuclear Hotseat #234: “Honorable Retreat f/Tokyo Olympics” – Ambassador Murata


This week’s featured interview:img073

Mitsuhei Murata is a career diplomat and former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland who has been very outspoken in his opposition to Japan’s nuclear policies, especially since Fukushima began in 2011. Recently, his proposal that Japan should seek an “honorable retreat” from the 2020 Olympics because of Fukushima has been gathering international media attention. We learn about the man, how he came to his anti-nuclear position, and what led him to this very public strategy regarding Japan’s intention to host the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Listen here:

Numnutz of the Week:

Radioactive rice grown in 2013 in Minami-Soma,  declared “not guilty!” of any connection with Fukushima’s leaking, radioactive triple-meltdown only 12 miles/20 km away — this according to Japan’s Nuclear Regulatory Agency (NRA) and the government discontinued the investigation.  BUT – the people, the petition, the City Assembly are pushing back against the nuclear numnutz in power.  Who wins?  Stay tuned…

  1. Why Does a Country Poison its Water ?

    To Extract a Fuel that will Enable its Military March To Global Markets !

    Why Does a Country Poisons It Food With Gut Busting Cancer Causing GMOs, To Harvest Humans ?

    Why Does A Country Raise its Radiation Levels for its People ? Fukushima !

    Why Does a Country Boil Water With Nuclear Elements ? To Provide Fuel For its Military Global Market March !

    We Have To Change The Federal Direction of The United States of America !

    Our Fossil Fuel and Nuclear Corporations are The Richest in The World !

    And They Are Destroying our Life Sustaining, Fragile Eco-Systems !

    It Is Time To Change This Insanity !

    Are We Getting Ready To Nuke the World ?

    “Ice sheets contain enormous quantities of frozen water. If the Greenland Ice Sheet melted, scientists estimate that sea level would rise about 6 meters (20 feet). If the Antarctic Ice Sheet melted, sea level would rise by about 60 meters (200 feet).” National Snow and Ice Data Center.

    There Are Over 400 Nuclear Reactors and All Their Fuel Rods ! At Sea Level Now !

    Relocate All Nuclear Fuel Rods and Contaminated Metals above 3,000 Ft!

    There Is No Carbon, Methane, or Nuclear Budget !

    “There is no carbon budget anymore and 5C is baked in according to both Shell petroleum and the International Energy Authority. ” Kevin Hester

    There is No Carbon, Methane, or Nuclear Budget !

    There are Methane Deposits that Are Now Being Emitted off the Arctic Siberian Coast, Greenland, and The Antarctic, As The Permafrosts Melt and the Oceans Warm, Methane deposits blowing out of the Crust and Ocean Floors !

    Methane is a Bridge to Hell, Ban Fracking Gov. Brown ! and President Obama !

    Globally we emit over 40 Billion Tons of Carbon Dioxide Annually !

    California Emitted 459 Million Toxic Tons of Carbon Dioxide in 2014.

    Gov Browns call to reduce this to 1990 levels so we can continue to emit over 400 million Toxic Tons a year, will not help us stop or slow down Global Warming and Sea Levels Rising.

    2020 Limit – AB 32 is now slightly higher than the 427 MMTCO2e in the initial Scoping Plan.” Ca. Gov. Data

    Ban Fracking !

    Close 100 of the 108 Bottle Watering Facilities in California !

    Golf on Gray Water or Close Golf Course

    Grow For Local and Regional Farming Circle, Federal and State Policies Must Change !

    Atmospheric Parts Per Million of Carbon is Now 404

    In the 1850 Carbon PPM was 260 – 280

    What will the Temp. be at 415 ppm ?

    Arctic 80% melted, Greenland is Keeping North America Cool, For How Long ? Antarctica is Melting as Well,
    When Will It Melt ? and All the Glaciers used to keep the Mantle Cooler !

    We must transition to 100% Renewable Energy

    Implement a California Residential and Commercial Feed in Tariff.

    California Residential Feed in Tariff would allow homeowners to sell their Renewable Energy to the utility, protecting our communities from, Global Warming, Poison Water, Grid Failures, Natural Disasters, Toxic Natural Gas and Oil Fracking.

    A California Commercial FiT in Los Angeles, Palo Alto, an Sacramento Ca. are operating NOW, paying the Business Person 17 cents cents per kilowatt hour.

    Sign and Share this petition for a California Residential Feed in Tariff.
