Anonymous U.S. Gov’t Nuclear Expert: Fukushima radiation levels were “astronomical… nothing containing release of radioactivity, it’s an unmitigated, unshielded number” — Monitor detected 100,000 Sv/hr

Published: February 18th, 2014 at 4:11 pm ET


The Asia-Pacific Journal, Feb. 17, 2014: A U.S. government nuclear expert who was directly involved in the U.S. government’s radiation assessment of this situation said: “At 100 meters away it (the helicopter) was reading 4 sieverts per hour. That is an astronomical number and it told me, what that number means to me, a trained person, is there is no water on the reactor cores and they are just melting down, there is nothing containing the release of radioactivity. It is an unmitigated, unshielded number.” –Confidential communication, Sept. 17, 2012

Email from Defense Threat Reduction Agency on March 17, 2011 (pdf): “Please take note of the new ‘Containment monitor reading’ on slide 10.”

Slide 10

  • Continuous Release – Steam released for decay heat removal […]
  • >> NFAC [Nuclear Forensics Analysis Center] Reactor Accident
  • >> >> Containment monitor reading: 10,000,000 R/hr [100,00 Sv/hr] (unconfirmed), tried to replicate the reported high radiation levels at site gate and computed and reported 375 R/hr [3.75 Sv/hr] from helicopter at 100 meters above spent fuel pools.

Using the inverse square law formula a dose rate of 3.75 Sw/hr at 100 meters, means from 0.5 meters away the dose rate equals 150,000 Sv/hr, very close to the 100,000 Sv/hr reported.

      Q So you don’t have evidence yet of whether this pool — because he had testified yesterday that you would fear that there was no more water in this fourth — in the spent fuel pond. Is that correct?

      DEPUTY SECRETARY PONEMAN: If I could just say — I think I can answer the question. The Japanese themselves have indicated that the level of water in that pond is low and is of concern. And there have been — we certainly saw the chairman’s testimony yesterday, and we’re getting whatever data we can on the situation at that pool. It doesn’t change what we — what is important, and that’s the Japanese, as they have themselves indicated, need to get more cooling water into that pool. So anything that can be done in that direction, whether it’s from water cannons or water drops, that’s going to be something they’re focused on, and of course, we would do whatever we could to help them.

    • FallOut FallOut

      Q And picking up on Chuck’s question, a Japanese official today said he did not know if that cooling pool has been emptied. Is it still your assessment that that cooling pond with the spent fuel rods is now empty?

      CHAIRMAN JACZKO: Well, everything — when we made the determination the other day, everything indicated that that was the case. And I think as has been said, there’s a lot of conflicting information around this. But the bottom line is, is that there clearly appears to be a challenge keeping that spent fuel filled with sufficient water. So it is a very dynamic situation. And again, our efforts are really focused here on helping the Japanese deal with what is a very tragic and difficult situation, and we’ll continue to provide recommendations and expertise where we can to help.

      BF9, I had the same reaction to seeing the 100,000 Sievert per hour figure. OMG, sincerely, OMG, I am praying for everyone and all life. I'm careful about my use of that term, and don't use it unless I mean it.

      Makes me want to stick my head in the sand, too. Wish the rest of me would fit in that hole so I could just crawl away and hide.

      The only reason I can continue to read here is I took a breather for a couple of days.

    We have known about the elevated readings at hot spots around the reactor buildings, 10 Sv/h and higher (limit of the test equipment), taken from pipes and ducts, using gamma cameras at over 200 meters range. This is nothing new, except the math to show what went on inside the reactor core.

    There is so much that has been covered up by the nuclear industry and the governments who support it, whispered only behind closed doors. They knew how bad it was in March of '11. And they have done everything they could, silencing, distracting, obfuscating, subverting, and downright lying through their teeth to hide the truth from the public.

  • Ontological Ontological

    Originally they reported these large numbers. They were quickly suppressed and they fell in exponential increments to near nothing to confuse the severity. First it was these readings were top of the scale, then it was these readings were in error. Again let's get this lie straight. How do you get PEGGED readings in error??

          Reporting from Los Angeles, Kesennuma and Tokyo—

          U.S. government nuclear experts believe a spent fuel pool at Japan's crippled Fukushima reactor complex has a breach in the wall or floor, a situation that creates a major obstacle to refilling the pool with cooling water and keeping dangerous levels of radiation from escaping

          That assessment by U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials is based on the sequence of events since the earthquake and information provided by key American contractors who were in the plant at the time, said government officials familiar with the evaluation. It was compelling evidence, they said, that the wall of the No. 4 reactor pool has a significant hole or crack.


          • FallOut FallOut

            WASHINGTON (AP) — Water used to cool radioactive waste at the stricken nuclear complex in Japan did not dry up, as earlier feared, U.S. regulators said Wednesday in a reversal of a claim that pitted U.S. officials against Japan in the days after that country's nuclear disaster.

            Jaczko, 40, has been under fire in recent days, as the NRC's inspector general released a report indicating that he repeatedly misled fellow commissioners about his efforts to stop work on a disputed dump for high-level radioactive waste. Inspector General Hubert T. Bell said Jaczko manipulated the panel's four other commissioners by selectively withholding information on a crucial safety review of the proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump in Nevada. Jaczko's actions allowed him to shut down the review last year without a vote of the full commission.

            Several agency scientists and a former NRC chairman also have questioned Jaczko's actions, and at least two Republican lawmakers have demanded that he resign.

            A spokesman for the NRC said Wednesday that the belief that the spent fuel pool may have gone dry played a role in Jaczko's controversial decision to recommend that U.S. citizens stay at least 50 miles (80 kilometers) away from the crippled Japanese plant. The Japanese authorities had ordered evacuations of people within about 12 miles (19 kilometers) of the plant.

              I do not own firearms as well, but I do believe there is a legal way to exercise one's right to protest. The irony is that the facility they spray painted, is the final home of broken up weapons components that literally have been swords, beaten into plowshares and is in fact a lawful operation since it is required by treaty to do so. That is a surprise. I think it was a symbolic gesture rather than an actual "life saving" venture unless you talk about their lives. I was surprised they made it out alive. Deadly force is nothing to take lackadaisically.

              • zogerke zogerke

                often, non violent civil disobedience in an anti nuke context IS symbolic to spread the word and get a message out. There is a more than 30year history of symbolic non violent civil disobedience in the usa….from MLK Jr and peaceful supporters (who used both direct action and symbolic actions in their work), to catholic workers, to the berrigans and the plowshare 9…to the nuns…to the TMI anti nukers…etc etc etc….Strong history.
                Sometimes, also, unless confined to solitary, prisoners-of-conscience from such actions end up organizing and being a force for betterment of other prisoner lives, from within jail. And all that is mapped out and planned for beforehand with affinity groups of supporters. Nothing is smooth or without surprises or difficulties….but the 'humanizing' and compassion driven efforts often are responded to positively even within prison. Not that it changes the trajectory of a prison term…..

                "Only 80% public boycott could bring down the powers that be, and this will never happen." Less than this given time. Why say never? It's not good to create self-fulfilling prophecy. You give people an "out" when you say things like this. Oh, it'll never happen so why should I try.

                "Fukushima and its countless victims proves that all the good intentions of protestors were for nothing." For nothing as in absolutely nothing? Nothing is for nothing, except nothing. Think about it. Given time and contemplation, your nothing has often revealed to me, the keyhole, through which I could view another universe of ideas. Besides, is a protester not like a gas gauge? What good is a gas gauge?

                "For every zombie Kevin Blanch shakes awake, two more fall into stupor" KB is a blaring siren on an ambulance carrying his tormented soul. It is not enough to wake people. If I wake someone, I give them coffee and muffins so they stay away and are ready to go. This takes leadership; which as I understand it, requires a leader. KB is not a leader, which is not meant as a derogatory statement since I don't believe he wants to be one – and there's nothing wrong with this. There's a very fine line between leader and hero. And as we all know, the definition of a hero is someone who gets other people killed.

                Codeshutdown – whenever you have expressed sentiments of being powerless ( I recall your hilarious debates with a poster that kept bugging enenews, called kez) against the government, those in power, I always knew that your words had weight, that they were not casually uttered without ever having even tried.

                Yesterday, the nuke accident in New Mexico having been reported in L.A. Times raised some awareness, and enenews had a lot of traffic. I am sure for some of those people it was the first time they actualy sat down and wondered if the official story was correct. You suddenly think of these things, when it hits close to your home. Then, those same people in New Mexico probably found enenews, and noticed all the other articles we have here about nuclear dangers, not just this one incident…

                I know some may still argue blogging here is doing very little to change things.

    How do you get a steam explosion with no water in the reactor? How can there be two other explosions in succession after a first explosion burns off all the hydrogen? How do you have hydrogen production inside a melting reactor absent any moisture due to high heat?

    The readings are actually higher, the melts were still partially shielded with sampling only taken after the leaking radiation began to mix with surrounding air.

    Didn't mention any blue glowing from ground zero. Hope they were in full protection dress inside that chopper.

    • Shaker1

      I don't think it's necessary to have water inside the reactor vessel itself, especially if melt down and through have happened. There was water in the suppression pool, probably all over inside the building. Inside that somewhat closed structure, there was water. Maybe hydrogen released in the breakdown of concrete?

      Now once the building was compromised, it's another question as to the sources of explosion.

    Japan's leading business journal Toyo Keizai has published an article by Hokkaido Cancer Center director Nishio Masamichi, a radiation treatment specialist.

    – TEPCO executives, who he accuses of having hidden the truth and prioritized the survival of the company over public health.

    – Nuclear industry lobbyists and “academic flunkies” (goyo gakusha) of the government who built up the myth of nuclear safety in the first place.

    " The JSDF helicopters that dropped water on the Fukushima Daiichi reactors and spent fuel pools in the days after March 11 were outfitted with the types of radiation shields used in hospital x-ray rooms. Nisho says that this was akin to “putting on a lead helmet in order to protect yourself from radiation from space”. The planners, he argues, did not even understand the difference between airborne radiation from a nuclear accident and radiation used in the controlled environment of hospital treatment. "

      Oh, they knew from the very beginning. GE taught them. Do not confuse GE's psychopathology with stupidity. They just didn't care, and when the shit hit the fan, they did what was necessary from a psychological point of view to keep the troops moving. Read some stories about the psychology of serial killers. Then you'll know how nuclear management thinks. Anne likes to take nuclear science classes. More appropriate is the psychology of mass killers, like Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot. Now imagine them working at the world's largest international banks, and companies like GE and Hitachi, then you'll start to understand.

            Just like burying radioactive waste in salt or sand, wrapping it in steel or concrete, the original failure remains and it's only getting worse.

              Vince – 'I almost want to die but I know I have to stay here and watch this nuclear nightmare unfold. It's too monumental of a view for me to make the leap quite yet.'

              I share the same sentiment. I gave up hope long ago – curiousity is what keeps me going. I'm just too curious – how will this all come down ?

    Things are not bad enough yet.

    Do you know why I say that?

    Because the internet is still on.

    When the internet gets "killed", who will we have to discuss issues with?

      Vince, the internet is still on, but it is a pale filtered reflection of its initiators hopes.

      The digital furnaces are working overtime for INGSOC.

    The potential consequences of this nuclear disaster has been covered on this forum since the first days. Unfortunately, much, if not all, has happened, is happening, and will be happen.

    Whistle-blower fired from Hanford nuclear site

    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Whistle-blower Donna Busche, who raised safety concerns at the nation's most polluted nuclear weapons production site, was fired Tuesday from her job at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

    • We Not They Finally

      Another disgrace in a long line of them. Also see Jack Shannon, GE whistleblower, about treatment of whistlebowers, how disastrously UN-safe this industry is, and that "he would not trust the DOE with burying banana peels."

      He was with GE, and put in charge of monitoring SAFETY at the apparently disastrous Knolls Labs in Schenectady, NY, then when he wrote the report that the labs were UN-safe, he was fired. They said it was because he was "disabled." News to him. But they wouldn't release his medical reports to him! The doctors said that GE was the customer and paying the bills, and that Shannon was "just the patient."

      I hope that someone is supporting this woman, and I don't just mean monetarily. VERY bad things have been known to happen to people who do this. Let's all wish her well and follow her story up. She more than deserves that much.

        The New world order is not that new. Even to the extent of changing the name of the son of God. Any historian will tell you the letter "J" never existed in ANY alphabet prior to being the last letter added to the pagan Roman alphabet we use today. Certainly not in the time of Christ.

        This an early example of technology dumb-down, (printing press) Like digital reissuing of books. Dumb 'em down for underling re-education. Corporate new world order Christendom inventor of corporations has deemed telling the truth to be a sin, even to the extent of extincting a language. (Latin)

        Christianity got took over hundreds of years ago, the first acquisition, there's money in religion. Tax free as well, the corporate aspiration. Why have a real estate agent when you can just steal it from everyone?

      Thanks Fallout for the post about the firing of Donna Busche by Bechtel.

      Ron Wyden weighed in quickly and earned fresh respect from me:

      ""Today's decision to fire yet another Hanford whistleblower shows that nothing has changed at the Energy Department when it comes to stifling dissent," said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., in a statement.

      He will ask the Government Accountability Office to investigate not only the pattern of contractor retaliation against whistleblowers at Hanford, but also DOE's lack of response to these actions, he said.

      It should be mandatory for all nuclear industry employees to first learn to hold a whistle. Promotions should require that you prove you can use your whistle. Safety should not be taken lightly. It's a goddamned nuclear bomb if used improperly. Dumbasses, the lot of them.

        Everyone should be responsible for safety in the workplace, regardless of nuclear or not. It is a moral imperative to protect people in hazardous or potentially hazardous situations so they can go home at the end of the day.

    This nuclear radiation contamination made me feel so very dirty and slimy all over so I started dumping rum and vodka straight into the tub. I then took hour long baths, washed the clothes and the dishes and then filled back up all the original bottles and then my friends and I drank it.

    Bobby had a few questions about the color and stuff floating in it, but I told worries.

  • With that high level of radiation is doubtful water boiled away. The radiation was high enough to split the hydrogen and oxygen molecules contained in the water.

    Bottom line is the best they can do is lie. No science can battle these disasters. Oh yeah, right, the industry prefers to call it an accident.

    "Only those who return to the values of the old ways will be able to find peace of mind. For in the Earth we shall find relief from the madness that will be all around us. It will be a very hard time for women with children for they will be shunned, and many of the children in these times will be unnatural. Some being from the Stars some from past worlds, some will even be created by man in an unnatural manner and will be souless. Many of people in this time will be empty in Spirit they will have Sampacu. No life force in their eyes.

    Confusion between sexes, and children and their elders.
    Maybe some of you can interpret this better than me. I see returning to the old ways as living with the Earth in a natural manner. Clans and Families. No more of the modern lifestyle and the luxuries we have always striven for. The price is to high.We made it folks. The 60's and the 70's.At least here in the good ol USA.
    Oh Well we still have 3 more worlds to go according to the Hopi.

  • Test the radiation levels for yourself, and not take anyone's word for it. I've seen the levels myself to be over the top high, compared to a few years ago. I got a pocket keychain detector and it is good enough to see where the levels are, particularly near the oceans in the west coast of the US. I won't eat seafood from our coast until a miracle happens and the radiation disappears somehow. Until then I test and avoid food/water if my tester says it's unhealthy!

  • Here's a high reading from inside Reactor Building 2 at 880 mSv.

    – June 2012
    Robot Cam 880 mSv Reactor 2

    According to WolframAlpha
    "~ extremely severe radiation poisoning dose that can cause death without prompt treatment (~ 1 Sv )"

    "~ ionizing radiation equivalent dose that may cause symptoms of radiation sickness if received within 24 hours (~ 1 Sv )"

    –> 1076 days… continuous and ongoing. 🙁

    IMO – There are people suffering and losing their lives because of this.

  • Tim42

    The problem with using inverse square formula, is that it assumes a point source. Radiation from a burning spent fuel pool or reactor meltdown is not a point source.

    I.E. The levels at near the surface much lower than claimed. Still very deadly, but much lower, perhaps a thousand(1000) times lower, perhaps 150Sv/Hr. It would take hundreds of precision measurements over a large area to determine how big the radiation source is, only then can one determine the proper formula to use.

    P.S. I still think nuclear energy is wayyy too dangerous to be used commercially and recommend that all commercial reactors be shut down ASAP. (They're just an accident waiting to happen).

  • Graham Brimhall RadRainMan

    When I read this article early this morning I was absolutely floored! I've been following this thing since it started and knew it was much worse than we were told, but the extent of ALL of these lies is unbelievable.

    It just keeps coming, day after day and all I do is try to find ways to protect my wife and children from this horrible reality. I've developed and patented body products that we use daily to help mitigate exposure but I'm also realizing there are other things we need to do internally to combat this stuff. It seems raising potassium levels helps to block C-137, nascent iodine for I-131 and calcium can help to ward off S-90. I also know bentonite and zeolite clay can trap isotopes and remove them from the body. I'd be interested to see if anyone else has found other supplementation to help prevent the uptake of these substances.

    • Tim42

      Eat low on the food chain, plan on getting most calories from vegis and grains. Consume small portions of of chicken, turkey. Avoid all fish, seafood, and derivative products unless you know positively their origins to be relatively safe.

      Avoid all food products from the west coasts of the US, Canada, Mexico, etc.

      Supplement your diet with known safe mineral sources. Take multivitamin with Iodine. Use salt lite(50% KCl, 50% NaCl), instead of regular table salt to minimize your Potassium/Cesium biological half life. Take a calcium/Mg/Zn(33% rda) to minimise Sr-90 uptake.

      Avoid dairy products from grass fed cows, and reduce dairy product consumption in general.

      Exercise, consume foods which help the body fight cancer, Garlic, Turmeric w black pepper, etc..

    Just saw a figure skating talent from Japan at the Olympics… She was far off her best, but so beautiful and lyrical, nonetheless.

    The announcers did not fail to mention that she had just lost her mother to liver disease in Japan…at merely age 48!…

    Usually, the parents of Olympic athletes are unusually healthy and strong themselves…good genes, etc…. Was her mother's condition aggravated by Fukushima??.. The liver can only filter so much!!…

    It made me wonder… and realize that was nearly the first mention of citizens in Japan in the mainstream media -to watch her perform- since the blackout of Fukushima took hold. 🙁
