Andrew Bolt comes out with some weird stuff. The Black Mist never harmed anyone according to him, event though an Australian court found on the evidence to the contrary. But that’s secret. He pissed on Mrs Milpuddies funeral. He claims noone will “probably” suffer radiation harm. Dr Bolt I presume. Well here’s some stuff which shows the reality.

ARPANSA REPORT ON STRONTIUM 90 TESTING PROGRAM
The Federal Government has today referred a report by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) into Australia’s participation in a global nuclear monitoring program to the Australian Health Ethics Committee (AHEC).
Between 1957 and 1978 Australia had a program for measuring strontium-90 (a radioisotope associated with nuclear testing) contamination in the environment.
“While this important research program was public knowledge at the time, I share the concerns of many Australians today about the ethics of not seeking the informed consent of next of kin for the use of human bone samples in the monitoring program,” Dr Wooldridge said on releasing the ARPANSA Report.
“It must be remembered that these events occurred in a different era when it was not common practice to seek the consent of family members for these kind of studies and that is why I asked ARPANSA to examine the records regarding the monitoring program.
“I am informed that the former Australian Atomic Weapons Tests Safety Committee, which coordinated this program, kept records, which included in many cases, the identity of the human samples used. ARPANSA is currently completing the process of collating these records.
“I am now referring the issue of how to best make this information publicly available to the National Health and Medical Research Council’s Australian Health Ethics Committee. AHEC is expected to provide advice by the end of the year on establishing proper ethical protocols so that family members can gain more detailed information about the program,” Dr Wooldridge said.
The Report shows that Commonwealth officials requested hospital pathologists to participate in the fallout monitoring program. Most pathologists in hospitals in mainland Australia and the Northern Territory who were asked were willingly involved as a public service.
The CEO of ARPANSA, Dr Loy, has written to the States involved and the NT providing them with the report and with the names of the laboratories involved for whatever further action they may wish to take.
The Report shows that for the first few years of the program, ashed human samples were sent to laboratories overseas (USA and the UK) for measurement as Australia did not have suitable equipment for measuring strontium-90. However, during the 1960s this capability became available and subsequent samples were analysed in Australia.
The results of the global research effort showed that humans were being adversely affected by radioactive fallout from atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons and the monitoring program contributed to the eventual banning of atmospheric testing throughout the world.” end quote.
The fact that the Japanese Government has announced the local fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster is equivalent to the fission product release of 120 Hiroshima bombs gives the lie to Bolt’s transcriptions of what the nuke industry wants him to say and write.
Noone pays me.
The fact is, given the ARPANSA report, the Refern Report, the ACHRE report, chances are Japan will be using the early techniques of the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission (which in the early days after the war had to be surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards) and will be harvesting human tissue of deceased Japanese people to monitor the fission products put into their bodies by TEPCO and the rest of the nuke industry. The Australian government let Britain detonate 12 bombs in Australia in the 1950s. It took until 2001 for a government minister to tell the truth.
If the Japanese authorities take the same amount of time to tell a fraction of the truth, it will be 2055 before they do a Wooldridge.
Bolt will be an old man or gone to God. Many of the people he confronts, affronts, insults, diminishes, and lies to may or may not be there to greet him. He’s just scratchng around trying to make a living I guess, but according to him, the victims of Fukushima, the Black Mist and fission product exposure cannot do a thing right.
According to him. And we, he says, should apologise.
I guess Bolt has never seen Nightbreaker or Backs to the Blast or Silent Storm, or measured the French Fallout as it arrived in Australia in the 1970s, or watched the milk in Queensland get dumped because of French Iodine. He ignores the still molten corium of the Fukushima, and the continuing venting of fission product there.
What a brain.
I wonder what the pathologists in Japan are being paid. A darn sight more than the Australian ones were I suspect.

AUSTRALIAN STRONTIUM 90 TESTING PROGRAM 1957-1978
Payment of a bonus for the collection of samples
TOP OF PAGE
“At this stage of the program the payment of a bonus of $50 to hospitals providing specimens was proposed:
“I have given a good deal of thought to the desirability of providing your technicians with at least some compensation for their efforts on our behalf. In the past there has been an obvious reluctance to accept such an offer, no doubt on account of the nature of the material and the purpose for which the specimen s are intended. However several factors lead me to reopen the question; for example, many technicians have already made considerable contribution to the bone survey with no payment from us and, in some instances it is becoming increasingly difficult to sustain an interest, with a tendency for specimens to be overlooked. We intend continuing the survey from some years and are anxious to maintain an adequate coverage of the population…
Perhaps compensation would best be in the form of an annual or six monthly bonuses paid to the technicians on our behalf through a hospital/laboratory account. Direct payment by us has unfortunate overtones and too much of the appearance of buying tissue; furthermore there are several statutory difficulties in us making payments of that sort. If it is not possible to operate through a hospital/laboratory account for this purposes, perhaps you could accept the sum, say, for “pathological services”, and pass it on to your technicians on our behalf.

Mr Bolt likes keeping up appearances as well. As for the authorities in Japan, we will wait to see if they do a Libby on their own people. Stillborns will be of great interest to them, as they were to Libby, Titterton and the rest.
I refer the reader to the British Redfern Report, in which the British Parliament documented the proven case of British Nuclear Fuels stealing tissue from British deceased nuclear workers in secret, without kin permission, as late as the 1990s. A special interest is still held, at least in England, and probably elsewhere, in the tissue of deceased nuclear veterans.
When the US returned tissue of Japanese atomic bomb victims in the 1970s, the Japanese government officially celebrated.
In 2055 will the Japanese people mourn at the belated admission that from 2011 the Japanese government acted in the same way as Groves, Libby et al from the 1940s to the 1990s in related to the human uptake of shit spewed forth from the still molten and emitting cores at Fukushima. I urge the reader to consult the 1934 patents of Szilard, inventor of the chain reaction, who devised the method of the nuclear chain reaction precisely to produce radioactive poisons. The method he and Fermi used under the authority of the Uranium Committee, S1 and the Manhattan Project to produce a nuclear reactor precisely to produce, not electricity, but plutonium and over 200 other substances. The waste heat used to boil water to turn turbines is a by product of the primary process. To produce radioactive poisons, thousands of times more radioactive per unit mass than the original fuel.
Such shit is now spread far and wide across the affected areas of Japan and the northern hemisphere.
There will be a lot of bones to pick. The hospital pathologists have their work cut out for them, and no doubt this time will be asking for more than 50 bucks.
Further reading for Mr Bolt, or whoever dictates to him.
I could go on. About how Libby had decided initially on secrecy in obtaining human tissue due to legal adivce. About where the fission products in stillborn babies came from. The mothers obviously. The epidemic in of soft tissue cancer in post menopausal women may or may not have something to do with Strontium mobility from bone (along with calcium) in that age range. (Adult bone is one of the least radio sensitive tissues of the body. When it mobilises from bone to fetus to breast, the dose effect is increased by the sensitivity of those tissues. In menopause, calcium and strontium loss is via soft tissue, the circulatory system and the organs of excretion.
Course, Dr Andrew Bolt would call me a fanatic and demand I say sorry. For what? The information he, on behalf of his string pullers, who ask him to write what is, in my opinion, total crap?
It’ll be happening in Japan. No doubt about it.
