AFP, Feb 22, 2015 (emphasis added): Sensors at the Fukushima nuclear plant have detected a fresh leak of highly radioactive water into the sea… [with] contamination levels up to 70 times greater than the already-high radioactive status seen at the plant… TEPCO said its emergency inspections of tanks storing nuclear waste water did not find any additional abnormalities… It was not immediately clear what caused the original spike… “With emergency surveys of the plant and monitoring of other sensors, we have no reason to believe tanks storing radioactive waste water have leaked… We are currently monitoring the sensors”…  The latest incident, one of several that have plagued the plant in recent months, reflects the difficulty in controlling and decommissioning the plant… TEPCO has not been able to effectively deal with an increasing amount of contaminated water…

NHK, Feb 22, 2015: Fukushima radioactive contamination sets off alarm — [TEPCO] says it has detected high levels of radioactive substances in a drainage channel on the plant’s premises on Sunday… the plant’s alarm system went off around 10 AM… levels of beta-ray emitting substances, which are not detected under normal circumstances, had risen to up to 7,230 Becquerels per liter… The utility suspects that contaminated water in the channel may have leaked into the port.

Japan Times, Feb 22, 2015: Strontium-90 levels spike alarmingly at Fukushima No. 1 plant — The Nuclear Regulation Authority said Sunday that an alarm went off at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant signaling high radioactivity levels in drainage ditches… the first alarm sounded at around 10 a.m., and another alarm 10 minutes later indicated much higher levels. Officials said contaminated water may have been discharged into the ditches.

      River Styx, Dr. Goodheart.. symbolism?

      CERN has Shiva, sometimes called the god of destruction, though, I think have also heard Shiva referred to as – rebirth. The third eye, well, while also a Hindi belief, there are others who also recognize this aspect.

      But if this was planned, to deliberately inflict pain on a world, to torture, to torment, from that seed will come nothing good, for them or for anyone else.

      • ISPC

        Yes. Angela_R. TY. I doubt Shiva has anything to do with CERN, or CERN with Shiva. If so, it escapes me. Maybe it's some weird physicist's illusion of being god-like, similar to Oppenheimer's quote from the Bhagavad Gita, of God in Universal Form, "I have become Death, Destroyer of Worlds." No, he didn't. He just helped build a horrible bomb.

        It appears that CERN has the inherent ability to Destroy Our World.
        I suppose that task would normally be left up to Shiva, named the Destroyer of the Hindu Triad, along with the roles of Brahma the Creator, and Vishnu as the Sustainer. I would simply suggest that man's hubris knows no bounds.

        Interesting to note, that in India, the Saivites, the ones that worship Shiva, refer to him as the Compassionate One. I doubt if CERN's physicists know of this term of endearment for Shiva. I doubt they even care.

        Peace

          CERN themselves picked the Lord Shiva as their symbol:

          “…• The Hindu deity, Shiva, a 2-metre statue styled on Chola bronzes of the deity engaging in the Nataraja dance of Chidambaram, parallelling the movements or "dance" of subatomic particles.[58][59][60]…”

          To me ISPC
          There are people of Dogma, wherein Truth is incorrectly interpreted and/or translated.
          The way I see it is that many people learn an interpretation and in many instances translations are part of the problem. There are those that learn, not through the heart but by dogma; such is fundamentalism. Fundamentalists exist in all beliefs.

          Note this translation of Robert Openheimer’s words: Lord Krisna said, I am terrible time the destroyer of all beings in all worlds, engaged to destroy all beings in this world….

            Here is a dogmatic statement, the dogma of Angela: "There are people of Dogma, wherein Truth is incorrectly interpreted and/or translated.
            "The way I see it is that many people learn an interpretation and in many instances translations are part of the problem. There are those that learn, not through the heart but by dogma; such is fundamentalism. Fundamentalists exist in all beliefs…"

            Christian fundamentalists are born again Christians. They learn through the heart, not by dogma.

              Last Evil Days of "Manmean"! Yahshua Son of Yahweh Returns VERY SOON! HalleluYah! Hebrew: "Praise ye Yah!"

              Dogma or FACTS? Hey, we CAN choose! Because you decided to praise the name "Jesus", I believe that it is fair for me to question you now if you are certain that it is His Name?
              Just asking. Do you know that there is NOT a connection between this pagan name and the Name of Yahshua the Messiah, Son of Yahweh? None what so ever no matter what Christian evangelists may tell you. And, there is NOTHING "Judeo" about Christianity. It is Roman Catholic, Greek, and Babylonian but NOT Hebrew at all.
              Yahshua Himself said in John 5:23:
              "I come in My Father's Name and you receive Me not. Let another come in his own name; him you will receive." Yahshua and His Father Yahweh share the
              SAME NAME.
              The name Jesus Christ is alluded to in Revelation 13:18. Greek Diaglott (Free on The Web).
              In Greek the #666 (three Greek letters/numbers) translates to the pagan name of Christos Zeus (Zeus the Savior), chief idol of the Greeks. This name contains a CROSS, X as in Xmas. This X = the #6 and is called a HEX. Over the centuries this idol name "morphed" into the name "Jesus Christ" name of the image (idol) of the beast (Vatican).

              The original Protestants PROTESTED Christianity!

              "Come out of her MY people!", Yahshua the Messiah in Revelation 18:4

              ETERNAL SURVIVAL BLESSINGS!

In the spirit of Christ and the Almighty, evil was banished from the earth and a just and honest society had flourished in America. Because of very porous borders, the followers of Satan have been able to corrupt and infiltrate many aspects of our "Paradise on Earth". DO NOT FOLLOW THE ADVICE OF THE WICKED.

                  Your feelings smack of privilege of the banker Illuminati class. You must love the MIC. Paradise on earth has always been the privlege of the less than 1%. Their Paradise was never built on Christianity, but usury and enslavement of everyone else.

                    I should have said the last 450 years. Was Paradise, in your opinion, slavery, rum running, women without the right to vote and killed as witches?

                    The NWO will never come into being until all the Christians and Muslims and Jews, and all people of other faiths are killed and sent to heaven. By then, however, the whole earth will be destroyed by the weapons of mass destruction, including depleted uranium munitions and airplanes.

                    For pro-Nukers it is always pie on earth. They proclaim, just give up time and we will perfect the imperfectable: i.e., the next generation of nuclear waste control and nuclear energy and nuclear weapons. These technologies will never work except as weapons of mass destruction and will kill indiscriminately including everyone.

                      Lets not forget that the original Constitution only allowed landowners to vote, and even today not every state has primaries to determine the candidates and there are party bosses who override the electorates votes for the candidate snominated. And then if that doesn't work, there is the electoral college to ensure that there will be no democracy for anyone outside the 1%. The tax laws all favor the wealthy.

                      And everyone pays taxes. There are property taxes paid by renters and taxes on everything anyone buys including food. And there are the social security taxes which the wealthy steal all the time. Who even campaigns any more on the lock box for social security funds. The Republicans will never vote out social security because they couldn't steal the funds anymore.

      • Arizonan Arizonan

        Angela,

        No, I do not believe "deliberately" so. This worst of all environmental disasters that we and the earth have seen, was the result of men's actions – yes – actions that evolved from hubris in the extreme .hey believed they could control it, somehow convinced themselves they could control it, and still do. They believed themselves to be infallable, in the manner of gods. Yet the evidence that has been there for them since the beginning – since the deaths of the Curies, since the deaths of the X-rays technicians, since the still lingering deaths of "survivors" of Hiroshima and Nagasaki – they have had evidence that they cannot control it. Hubris blinds them to their own inability to control it. Gofman said even if they were able to contain 99% of the radioactivity from weapons and power production, from mining to fission to waste, there would still be 100,000 extra deaths per year in the US from the 1% that escaped into our environment. These materials will continue to emit DNA-warping energies for hundreds of thousands of years. Someday they may even stop fissioning. So, the releases are not deliberate, except in so much as it is a sin, the ultimate act of human hubris, to believe in your own infallibility. And so we have this infinite tragedy. I believe that the spike in the strontium-90 is caused by the underground still fissioning reactor-globs, still formed enough to be ejecting rapidly decaying materials into the water table, where they will find their way…

        • Arizonan Arizonan

          …where they will find their way to the ocean alarms. I was out walking in the snowy woods today. I thought to myself, the news from Fukushima is getting worse. (I have read these boards since April 2011). The news from Fukushima is getting worse, I thought. Then I thought, the news from Fukushima will always get worse. The news from Fukushima will get worse for the rest of my lifetime. I accept this now, but I do not cease to find ways to share information with my fellow humans about it. We do not deserve the blackout of information. We deserve enough information to be able to start adapting to our new reality. We need enough information to stop eating Pacific-origin foods, to start with. That alone would reduce the internal radioactive burden of fissioned materials for millions of humans. We will get there. We will adapt as best we can, before the DNA damage is irreparable and both human and non-human populations begin to decline, and then are entirely unable to reproduce, or rather die before the age of reproduction, unable to replace their numbers – but that day is far off yet – I think a minimum of 100 years. In the meantime, the news from Fukushima will get worse. The news from Fukushima will continue to get worse. Brace yourselves. We are in for the long haul.

        • nedlifromvermont

          Hey Arizonan … I think Gofman said the damages you cite would come from .01% releases … but whatever … we never needed the uranium fission roll out … to generate grid electricity, which is largely wasted …

          interesting NPR show this morning (6-7 am on NHPR) with an "environmentalist" Brit flogging uranium reactors (the 'significant contribution to the grid, base load reliability, 'little waste' and low carbon emissions) up against a German scientist who shot the pro-nuker down and professed Germany's rejection of this crap technology by 2022. I'll try to get the link;

          The nukers are a cult, like Galileo's Catholic Church; talking of a 'scientific consensus' behind uranium power which does not exist;

          A very powerful cult, more powerful than the U.S. Government, forged during the fight against Hitler;

          The evidence points to the British Crown and their French bankers: world powers with little to no oil and insufficient coal; which bent the rules at the U.N.; bought compliance from a naive and easily fooled U.S. Congress.

          We have been so fu**ed over by the lies of our corrupt overlords in Paris and London;

          They flog climate change to save a dying uranium fission power industry flying an unnecessary technology developed in the 1950's;

          These losers are totally running the show and happy to give their cancer to everyone and everything;

          A wicked wind this way comes;

          Thanks be to GE … (for the excess radioactivity)

          peace folks!

          • nedlifromvermont

            from the morning show … "in the reactor core (in England somewhere) 100 million million million uranium atoms undergo fission every second …"

            kind of gives you an idea of the poisons we are up against;

            This uranium fission thing should never have been permitted to build up to this scale;

            The utilization of uranium metal in this way is a gigantic mistake … a colossal blunder;

            The world must renounce completely this toxic enterprise, even though it may well be too late for Earth.

            We must keep fighting to shut down every reactor everywhere.

            Mock the loser nucleotards who are afraid of our truths on these pages.

            Mock them relentlessly; they don't like it; it's easy and cheap; and it might just work!

            Go Germany!! Tell England, France, Japan, U.S.A., Russia and China where to get off this stupid nuclear train!!

            We freed you (sort of) from Hitler and now we need you to free us from the uranium pushers … what goes around comes around …

    The ENENEWS Forum here, for webcam discussions, likely caught the "criminals" — steaming emissions and explosive smoke from the areas of Common Fuel Pool/Reactor 1 (we saw the cranes and warning beacons), and from just south of Reactor 4 building. Can you say CRACKS in ground might be suspect? And radiation spikes also caught at the same time. Good area for looking for data points, that discussion thread!!

    Every day is like waking up from a nightmare in a nightmare. Just got notice of another Leukemia case of a 13 year old one, more to come. The gap between the reality I see and what is presented to us by media becomes bigger and bigger. The harder the calls will be when both ends come together again – reality check planet earth – doomed.

    • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

      Our goal should be to stop those that are now killing our planet and all of us in and from all industrial practices that are unsafe.

      Nuclear is unsafe and already proven. The no brainer is/would be to ban the use of this technology from our only inhabitable planet we call Earth!

      Homolumina, and Johnny Blade, and all Enenewser friends,
      I hope that this short rundown of my personal anti-cancer campaign
      will be of healing use to someone:

      I was operated on to remove a cancerous tumour in May of last year.
      A major wake-up call for me. When, last August, I was advised that the surgeon wanted further action, removal of several lymph nodes to be precise, I said, "Alternatives, please?"
      No response from surgeon. After some research online, I've found 6 or 7 viable alternatives. I am now doing ALL of them. Results are very good!
      Another major wake-up call, thank God, this time, a positive one…

      FYI, here's a brief list….

      1. BCX Ultra, by New Earth Technologies "Rife-type" frequency therapy machine.
      2. Silver Pulser, a blood electrifier/colloidal silver maker by Sota Instruments.Based on Robert Beck's research.
      3. Essiac Tea, an herbal blend of anti-cancer-properties plants.
      4. Carnivora, based on Venus flytrap extracts.
      5. Budwig Protocol, a cottage cheese/flax oil blend.
      6. Coldwell protocol, a maple syrup/baking soda mixture.
      (As Onto calls it "poor man's chemo"..and a hell of a lot
      better tasting)
      7. Diet: all-vegetarian, lots of miso, green tea, tumeric, supergreen powder,kelp, and vitamins C, D, E, zinc, selenium, and CoQ10.
      I sure hope this helps someone. With Fuku spewing for Lord knows
      how long, plus toxic geoengineering skyborne crap, we are going to need all the anti-cancers we can muster. Anyone want…

          You have really done your research well and you will win this battle. Here are a few other things that have worked for some people. Ozone shots or IV, you can learn to do this at home. You can make medical grade ozone at home for less than $600. See Ed McCabe's book FLOOD YOUR WITH OXYGEN….A PEMF device, that delivers frequencies, similar to your Rife device. http://www.EarthPulse.net, about $750….Here is a real winner, MMS http://www.jimhumble.is See his cancer protocol. This is fast and cheap, less than $50.You can do this along with the other things you are doing. Also coffee enamas…. My wife had a spot that covered 1/3 of her liver. The Dr. was trying to get her scheduled for a liver transplant when she said BS on that. Instead, she was treated with frequencies delivered by a laser that our Alternative Med/mentor/adviser made. She also changed her diet and took lots lot of vitamins and minerals. Her health is perfect today. My brother overcame colon cancer with Essiac Tea…Here is the bible on cancer, Hulda Clark's, The Cure For All Diseases. Good luck to all who do the research…IF I had cancer today I would start with the MMS Cancer Protocol, The EarthPluse pemf device and Dr Gordon's Vitamin C (I am talking mega doses of C). Because I have no problems tolerating the mms I am confident that, that, alone would work for me. However, loading up on the other stuff won't hurt.

            This is an ancient medicinal herb proven to be very effective. It has powerful anti fungal/parasitic properties. Most widely used by herbalist for deworming.
            It contains: Tanins and one aspect of this is control of diarrhea
            Also: Iodine a known antiseptic, this allows it to attach to ineffective bacteria and kill them.
            Also: A powerful chelator
            It Oxygenates the blood! This is believed to be partly how it kills parasites….fungus/parasites thrive on sugars…… oxygenated blood is also known anticancer agent
            It has also been said to be effective against Lymes Disease….another fungus/parasite in the body
            It is not recommended for daily maintenance but for known symptoms or a cleansing regiment.

        "After some research online, I've found 6 or 7 viable alternatives. I am now doing ALL of them."

        A few comments:

        1) I've followed SOTA instruments for many years and respect their work and their products. They're in business for the long haul. In addition to devices you mentioned, they make an ozone generator that may be worth trying. You'd think O2 would encourage oxidative damage, but I've been told that it actually has an anti-oxidant effect.

        2) FYI, the Beck protocol has four components, all easily researched online.

        3) I read today from the Natural Society that activated charcoal is an excellent chelator of various toxins, and some people use it regularly. That's something worth looking into.

          Hi J. Ozone treatment has shown great promise for many disease. It was reported to have been able to stop ebola in Africa. One of the countries had it ready to go but supposedly the health minister stopped it. The Pharmaceutical industry will not be denied.

        The Pacific Ocean should vote. So should the fish and birds.

        Great talking point for the lawyers that will lobby for healthcare for the Pacific Ocean. Has it not been proven that the right pills can cure disease? Are fish getting a disease from Fukushima? Can we dump pills in the ocean and profit? 1+1=2. Let the misinformed and illiterate children and barbarians vote on the matter. If given the choice between pills and food, Americas seniors, disabled, ill, handicapped, poor, and misguided have the choice made for them by the pharmaceutical industry.

            There are millions of splitting atoms per second in an active reactor core. About half of those are barium, and the other half are krypton. If each event creates two free neutrons to produce plutonium, strontium etc. that is a lot of toxic waste being created that must be contained indefinitely. Strontium must be the burn up of krypton within the core as everything within a reactor core burn up into something very unwholesome. Krypton is a noble gas that is created by the splitting of a U235 atom. The atom of krypton stays in the fuel unless the fuel gets atomized by some crazy event. Shake a can of soda pop and see what happens with carbon dioxide when you open the can.

  • We Not They Finally

    This is from reactor no. 1? We thought it was supposed to be reactor no. 4 that was doomsday. Oh, by the way, we thought that the discharges prior to this, and then prior to that, were doomsday.

    Thanks for the corrections, you psychopaths. Now at least we have a clear read that this particular new doomsday is "contamination levels up to 70 times greater than the already-high radioactive status seen at the plant" the last time around.

  • ISPC

    Yes. Everything is out of TEPCO's control. The Nations that would be most helpful, those that have the most to lose, in the Northern Hemisphere, are not stepping up to aid Japan, or themselves. This is a big problem. We have two disasters, then. The first disaster is progressing as the disaster it is. TEPCO's feeble attempts at glossing over the scope of the problem only does that, and their attempts at "decommissioning" only compounds the problems. The second disaster is that the World stands by watching; doing nothing. Together, both disasters leave us with one reality. The reality, the one that we see, is that the situation at the FDNPP is beyond control, and only worsens day by day. Peace

    If the Earth's/Planet's background radiation readings are now 600% more than they were before 1945, when we started playing around with this Nuclear stuff, that means nothing has been cleaned anywhere simply based on the increased "caused by man" increased background radiation readings that Dr Goodheart and Stock have demonstrated with real numbers. 🙂

    James Lovelock on nuclear waste

    "I have offered to take the full output of a nuclear power station in my back yard."

    – Professor James Lovelock as quoted in the London Sunday Times

    According to today's Times, the outspoken British environmental scientist, author and founder of the 'Gaia' theory of planetary homeostasis has a cunning plan to overcome any objections to a new nuclear power plant being built in the vicinity of his neighborhood. The good doctor has volunteered to take the radioactive waste off the plant's hands and use it for domestic heating requirements.

    With Prime Minister Tony Blair's recent call for more nuclear power in Britain, some people are worried about the toxic byproducts. But according to Lovestock, he and his neighbors could save a packet by taking in the wayward waste.

    MAJOR FUKUSHIMA LEAK. THE WORLD IN PERIL
    Feb. 22, 2015
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URPlxdgbU9M#

  • Cdog Cdog

    I love how in the video we get an explanation of action taken to, and we are thus left to assume, reduce or stop the "leak," and thus everything at the plant appears organized and under control..

    I still contend leak has never been an appropriate term for any of the quantities of water discussed. It's highly unlikely theirs any containment and these surges will always appear until all of the cores are washed away and diluted into the ecosystem.

    It's heart stopping to finally see a more recent close up of the sprawling facility and death tanks. All that hot water bouncing against the metal walls creating a fire storm, or sunshine, of gamma radiation.

    RunningonLove, great list but I'm not sure the costs are worth the benefits when it comes to green tea, kelp, and miso.

    Ontological, Thanks for the info on sunflower seeds, a salad will never be a great again but I gotta add them to the super hot dirty list of sea products, dairy, and mushrooms.

    • amberlight amberlight

      Cdog, Miso Master organic miso is made in Asheville, NC.

      Numi organic green tea is fair trade sourced from China, not known for stringent product safety standards—China, that is—but Numi is a reputable brand.

      The kelp we use was last harvested by us off the coast of Mendocino the summer following the Daiichi meltdown. We haven't gathered any since, so we use it sparingly. Even the guy that used to harvest and sell seaweed at our farmers market has folded up his tent. Last time I saw him his conversation indicated that he had come to grips with the reality that the pollution was never going to stop. One more small business providing a valuable product down the chute…

      May the perpetrators of this catastrophe and all others like it suffer EVERYTHING they are inflicting upon others!

      • HOpefully you tested that dried kelp?

        • amberlight amberlight

          No, and we still live on the left coast. Appearance and taste of the kelp is normal and so far no illness, but I come from a hardy bunch. I am an upbeat person in spite of it all; eat organics; sun gazer; alternative medicine, etc.

          The pollution is everywhere, and not just radiation. I can't live what's left of my life running scared. Besides, most of my kids & grandchildren live in Oregon or California. I won't abandon them. They are the ones I really worry about, not myself. Fortunately they have shown no signs of disease, but time is not on our side…

  • amberlight amberlight

    And I am STILL running into people who get a puzzled look on their face when I mention Fukushima—"Oh that! The earthquake and tsunami? That was, um, how many years ago?"—believing that it was a past event that doesn't affect them.

    Funny you should mention Tuna…..

    I am on the east coast and go out regularly to fish for Tuna. On our last trip, we were met at the dock by some "academic" type, claiming to be doing a study on tuna migration and so forth.

    I tend to state the obvious and said "shouldn't you be testing for cesium 137 instead?" The look on his face said it all. He eventually came clean with us and told us they were checking the carcasses of Tuna on the east coast to check for elevated levels of……….cesium 137. Do date, he said nothing they have sampled tested positive. Who knows whether or not to believe.

    Once the first tuna is caught on the east coast with elevated levels…..that's it for me. No more tuna fishing.

    • and where is this guy from?

      They all claim that they are NOT TESTING, and getting no money for it.

      Was he wearing a large black cone shaped hat?

      Did he carry a magic wand?

    • Well that's kinda something to ponder. Hmmmm. Thanks for the sleuthing. 🙂

      Bet there's a few prickled people at some level wanting all the bad rumors to just go away…then might be there's a few that are quietly wanting to check just in case, too. After all, they have, or know families that have experienced more illnesses than usual by now. Heartbreaking for anyone who suffers a radiation factor.

    Symposium 61 years after Bikini Atoll nuke test

    Feb. 22, 2015
    A symposium has been held in Tokyo to mark the 61st anniversary of a US hydrogen bomb test on the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific.

    The United States carried out the test on March 1st, 1954. Local residents as well as the crewmembers of a Japanese fishing boat were exposed to radiation.

    About 100 people attended the event at Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo on Saturday…

    As I See It: Gov't must delve deeper into radiation exposure from Bikini Atoll incident

    Sixty years have passed since crew members of the Daigo Fukuryu Maru, a tuna fishing boat based in Yaizu, Shizuoka Prefecture, were exposed to radiation following a nuclear test that the United States conducted on Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean. At the time, the Japanese and U.S. governments played down the damage …

    • rogerthat

      caused by the incident, announcing that the Daigo Fukuryu Maru was the only vessel affected by "death ash" even though nearly 1,000 vessels, including Japanese freighters and fishing boats, may have been exposed to radiation.

      Now, the Japanese government is underestimating Fukushima residents' exposure to radiation following the outbreak of the crisis at the tsunami-hit Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant, while making haste to restart idled atomic power stations across the country.

      This suggests that the history of placing priority on national policy over people's health is being repeated in Japan. The government should conduct a detailed survey on people's exposure to radiation in the Bikini Atoll incident and learn lessons from the case.

      In January this year, Hajime Kikima, 69, a doctor living in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture, examined an 88-year-old retired employee of a company that owned the Daigo Fukuryu Maru, and felt that his patient was suffering from the effects of a radiation-related disease.

      The patient was involved in work to remove water from the tuna fishing boat over a period of two months after it came back to the Yaizu fishing port.

      At the time, he felt dizzy and lost a considerable amount of his hair, but did not receive any treatment. After he passed the age of 60, the patient suffered from stomach and colon cancer as well as a thyroid gland disorder. Workers at a local public health office who looked after crew members of the…

      • rogerthat

        who looked after crew members of the boat are also reportedly showing symptoms suggesting they had indirect exposure to radiation.

        A health ministry survey shows that 856 fishing boats across the country dumped fish they caught because of the nuclear test on Bikini Atoll.

        Some researchers point out that over 1,000 vessels were affected by radiation from the nuclear test in one way or another.

        A citizens group in Kochi Prefecture, where about one-third of fishing boats operating around the atoll were based, claims that many former crew members of these vessels are suffering from cancer or other diseases. The organization has joined hands with Hiroshima University in investigating whether and how former crew members' exposure to radiation has affected their health.

        Not everyone affected by radiation in the incident is known. If the government had conducted an extensive survey, the results could have helped conduct better surveys on Fukushima residents' exposure to radiation following the nuclear plant accident.

        The government should have identified those who are suspected of having been exposed to radiation in the Bikini incident and examined their health conditions.

        However, the testimonies provided by those involved in efforts to get to the bottom of the incident highlight the selfishness with which the United States, a nuclear superpower, attempted to cover up the incident, and the cowardliness with which the Japanese government went along with …

        • rogerthat

          went along with such attempts by Washington.

          At that time, less than a decade after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, the United States feared that the Bikini incident could ignite anti-U.S. and anti-nuclear sentiment.

          Amid the Cold War, Washington was extremely wary about details of the nuclear test on Bikini Atoll, such as how fishermen operating nearby were exposed to radiation, coming to light. The Daigo Fukuryu Maru is now on display in Tokyo thanks to a preservation campaign by citizens, even though the United States had proposed that Japan sink the fishing boat for the purpose of protecting secrets.

          In January 1955, less than a year after the incident, Washington paid a total of roughly 720 million yen to crew members of fishing boats and people in the fisheries industry across Japan as "consolation money." Since then, Tokyo has maintained the position that the matter has been settled.

          That same year, Tokyo and Washington signed an agreement on bilateral cooperation in promoting the peaceful use of nuclear energy, and Japan enacted the Atomic Energy Basic Act, based on which the country began nuclear power development as a national policy while drawing the curtains on the Bikini incident.

          Sixteen of the 23 crew members of the Daigo Fukuryu Maru have already passed away. Most of them died of liver cancer and other liver ailments. The majority of medical experts believe that the crew members were infected with hepatitis C…

          • rogerthat

            through blood transfusions as part of their treatment. However, the government recognized the death of only Aikichi Kuboyama, 40, chief radio operator of the vessel who passed away six months after the nuclear test, as being directly related to the incident.

            "The Japanese government has followed U.S. nuclear policy because of the bilateral security arrangement and for economic reasons, and has turned a blind eye to its own people's exposure to radiation," says Hiroko Takahashi, a lecturer at the Hiroshima Peace Institute of Hiroshima City University, who conducts research on atomic bombs and U.S. nuclear tests.

            "The government has failed to proactively release the amounts of radiation that Fukushima residents have been exposed in the nuclear crisis. Its attitude has remained unchanged since the Bikini incident.

            Following the Bikini incident, Yaizu-based fishermen were forced to discard fish that they had just landed at the local fishing port. Local residents reportedly tended to regard the Daigo Fukuryu Maru as a nuisance. Some local residents even looked coldly at crew members of the vessel saying, "Fish in Yaizu are no longer selling well because of you."

            One of the former crew members, 87-year-old Susumu Misaki, opened a tofu shop after the incident. One local branded his tofu "nuclear weapon tofu." The Bikini incident dealt a serious blow to the nation's fisheries industry as a whole.

            Now, the agricultural and fisheries industries in Fukushima …

            • rogerthat

              in Fukushima Prefecture face harmful rumors about their products, and it is ordinary citizens who are being made to pay for problems deriving from national policy.

              Some people may have died even without knowing that they were exposed to radiation from the nuclear test on Bikini Atoll. Documents on the mariners' insurance program provide details on the crew members of ships, the period and locations of their operations and their health conditions. The documents are preserved at the Japan Pension Service, which falls under the supervision of the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry. The government could clarify the causal relationship between crew members' exposure to radiation and their health problems if it closely reviewed those documents.

              Kuboyama passed away after saying, "We should be the last victims of atomic and hydrogen bombs." To make sure that no more people will be killed by radiation, the government must get to the bottom of the Bikini incident. (By Yuta Hiratsuka, Shizuoka Bureau)

    … SANTA FE – The federal Department of Energy is taking the position that any state fines it pays for a radioactive leak at the nation’s nuclear waste repository near Carlsbad will come from money appropriated to clean up decades’ worth of contamination from nuclear weapons work in New Mexico.

    “Any fines and penalties assessed on the EM (environmental management) program would be provided by cleanup dollars, resulting in reduced funding for cleanup activities,” says a 2016 budget year summary presented earlier this month by DOE’s Office of Environmental Management. …

    • rogerthat

      this stuff is unbelievable:

      http://www.abqjournal.com/544613/news/doe-cleanup-fund-will-pay-wipp-fines.html

      … Under the DOE’s stance, the $185 million that LANL is budgeted to receive for fiscal year 2016 for cleanup of radioactive and hazardous waste would be reduced by the $37 million in fines that the state wants for LANL’s role in the WIPP leak. NMED has also fined WIPP $17 million.

      NMED Secretary Ryan Flynn has previously argued that the fines, which the DOE is appealing, shouldn’t come from cleanup dollars. In that case, he said in November, “you’re not punishing the people who caused the problem, you’re punishing the people of New Mexico who benefit from the environmental cleanup work.”

      He added in a prepared comment provided Friday: “Essentially, DOE is threatening to punish states by doing less cleanup work if states attempt to hold it accountable for violating federal and state environmental laws.

      “States like New Mexico welcome federal facilities into our communities with the understanding that these facilities will respect the health and safety of our citizens by complying with federal and state laws.”

      Flynn told the Journal last week that the DOE’s resistance to paying the WIPP-leak fines sets a dangerous precedent, breaks with past practice by the DOE and is at odds with the Obama administration’s tough stance on other kinds of environmental problems. …

        WIPP Radiation Leak: the USW had to test its own workers for radiation contamination
        21 Feb 2015

        The United Steelworkers Union (United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International), which now includes Karen Silkwood’s Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers Union (OCAW) [1] is present at the WIPP nuclear waste site and was forced to test the unionized workers itself, after the WIPP radiation leak, as described in the article below. The USW appears more focused on safety than some other unions.

        The USW local 7-669 at the Honeywell site in Metropolis, Illinois, demonstrates the potential for unionized workers to act as collective whistleblowers at nuclear sites. They have been locked out by Honeywell, since August 2, 2014, apparently due to their whistleblowing efforts to protect Americans and the environment, at the dangerous Honeywell uranium hexafluoride facility in southern Illinois, along the Ohio River. They remain unsung heros. [2] Nonetheless, as made apparent in the New York Times article, linked to at the bottom of this post, fear of unemployment exists in tension with safety concerns, even within unions. [3]

        We suspect that it was the USW’s presence at the WIPP site, along with multiple State and National entities, and multiple contractors, which kept the WIPP …

        • rogerthat

          which kept the WIPP leak from being hidden.

          At the end of January 2014, radiation was so high at Sellafield, in Cumbria, England, that non-essential workers were kept away. Then, it was stated that the radiation at Sellafield, one of the most highly contaminated nuclear sites in the world, was “natural” [4] . …

    SA nuclear royal commission a farce
    Noel Wauchope 22 February 2015

    The South Australian government’s royal commission into our nuclear future is a farce, and a dangerous farce, warns Noel Wauchope.

    FIRST OF ALL, it is not the province of one State to determine by a State royal commission that a nuclear industry should be introduced in Australia. That is a protected issue as a 'A Matter of National Environmental Significance' under the National Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.

    Secondly, this royal commission would be a mammoth waste of money for South Australia, The cost would run into hundreds of $millions. The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was allocated over $434 million in 2013 for its first four years of operation. Given that nuclear issues are the province of national law, not South Australian, this is a totally unnecessary expense.

    Thirdly, the 'public involvement' in the terms of reference for this royal commission is a farce in itself. Just look at how this was dealt with by the South Australian government: …

    I'm sure there has been multi alarms going off in Fukushima. Peoples alarm should be going off around the world, with all the Nuclear Plants in the World. Why have these Uncontrollable Monster Plants!

    People are lulled to sleep with thinking this won't effect them for another 100 years and they won't even be here, so why worry. Don't count on that it won't effect you. Even if you are one of the lucky ones that it doesn't effect, do you really want to put the future generations under a bus.

    The Nuclear Power Radiation People are playing dangerous games with this World. They are continually working to get more dangerous power that could easily wipe us out, from Nuclear Plants to what they are doing at Cern.

    "Giving the complex situation at the Fukushima Daiichi NPS site, associated with large uncertainties in
    relation to radiological and physical status of the facilities, long term decommissioning planning has
    to include consideration of numerous options and scenarios. There is a need to optimize planning
    efforts by narrowing down the number of options for consideration. Identification of future
    configurations of the Fukushima Daiichi decommissioning process would provide a contribution in
    that direction. The IAEA team encourages all stakeholders to continue discussions, initiated in the
    previous period, considering the future configuration. In addition to reduction of the number of
    options for consideration, identification of such future configuration will be an important input to the
    development of strategies and plans for management of very large amounts of radioactive waste,
    present now and expected to be generated during the decommissioning process."

    Any chance that three awol nuclear reactor cores have anything to do with the spike?

    I suggest that all stakeholders reconvene around a large cherry wood conference table and frantically produce new power-point presentations to reflect a sense that something of merit is ACTUALLY being accomplished at the site that used to be one of the world's largest nuclear electrical generating plants.

    Sadly, my sarcasm is pretty close to the actual truth in this horrid affair.
