Nov. 6 — Radiation expert Christopher Busby’s paper, The significance of Xenon isotope ratios in the Fukushima catastrophe, was posted by Mochizuki on Nov. 5.

He says the activity ratio for xenon isotopes reported by TEPCO can only result from:

1) “An enriched Uranium fission having occurred about 50 hours before the samples were measured”

Or

2) “An explosive criticality which occurred 60 hours before the measurements”

“What these results confirm is that there is on-going fission occurring at the site,” concludes Busby.

    One of the collected TEPCO webcam videos shows a heat signature of an explosion a week or so ago. Someone should look at that footage and determine if that was re-criticality.

      Arc: So true. The data is being absconded and obfuscated where it is released. There’s lots of convenient for data hiders, downtime on those long-term Rad-net charts!!! Very annoying. And, it doesn’t at all help that the academic entities with the very best testing and evaluation capacities are also those most in bed and institutionally legally and liability enmeshed with the U.S. Department of Defense, and U.S. Department of Energy. Then there is also their enmeshment with the world’s largest fossil fuel, commercial civilian nuclear power entities, AND have been in on the always completely covert development of nuke anything from the ground-floor up. I’m speaking, specifically in my little provincial domain of U.C. Berkeley, which is known to be lying to us all by factors in the tens to thousands of times, as has been demonstrated here. Unfortunately, locally, despite the Oakland Occupy Wall Street appearance to some that there might be an embryonic start to citizen momentum, we Americans still really don’t get “it”. When “we” (momentum) do BEGIN to get it, like many of my professors including one who’s personally suffered from the near-death effects of overdose on cancer treatment teletherapy, it’s just all too much for us (not me) apparently, the reality. Typical of maybe most bourgie citizens is to bury their heads up their arses when the hard work of being a political being arises, unfortunately. No momentum to resist the data debauchery of U.C. Berkeley. Not yet, anyway. :(

      It would be nice if he could elaborate on the possible scenarios if the stuff theoretically stored under ground were to escape as he suggests. Ok, there would be trouble, what trouble? After all, what we have here, is stuff under ground that is not in safe containment. So exactly what we don’t want is what we have, so now what can we expect now?

          Hi arclight, honestly, I’m not too convinced anymore of the idea to store nuclear waste deep underground. There’s too much we don’t know about the future conditions of this very spot.
          I’d prefer to have the possibility to visually control the conditions and to have the possibility to react if conditions worsen.

          We have an absolute disaster site in northern Germany called “Asse” – a former salt mine. During the 60′s, nuclear waste drums have been thrown in (literally), everything was said to be perfectly safe. 700 meters underground.
          Now, the whole mess is leaking (the drums and the surrounding walls). There are 12.000 litres groundwater leaking into the caves every day!

          Engineers are highly nervous, because the whole cave system is about to collapse. They think it might be stable another 10 years.
          They try to get the drums out – but neither the techniques (robots, transportation, etc.) is invented nor is there an adequate new site to put the waste.

          If you’re interested, here’s a 60 second visualsation showing the system and the caves (the red ones are the ones filled with waste). :-(

          We have a terrible disaster in the making here.

            The most scary thing is that, probably because they realize the underground disposal will never happen (either because its physically so difficult or, more likely, because there is no political will to do it), the industry seems to be adopting the line that “recycling” the used fuel and burning it up as MOX fuel is the best idea. I fear they are starting to persuade politicians of this idea. I believe MOX is the single biggest threat in all of this.

            It’s probably because of the MOX in #3 exploding that alpha emitters reached New England and, according to Busby, some Plutonium was even detected in the UK.

            MOX has to be stopped. We have to get the word out to people who don’t pay attention to nuclear power about the dangers of that stuff, if nothing else.

    I really hope this situation can stay somewhat stable. Small releases are a sign of things getting worse though. I don’t trust the idea that TEPCO can use the regular methods to control the melted fuel anymore. The result of excess fission products being released means that the cores are burning into something that is reactive. From what I have learned Boric Acid only works when you have the fuel in the reactor itself. Considering that TEPCO does not know if the reactors even have fuel left in them is concerning. I spoke with my friend from Yokohama and he says he is doing everything he can to get out of the country, but has to save money for a year to do so. Who knows what kind of nuclear hellscape Japan will look like in a year.

Only control left is pouring water on the mess. What else can they do? How can the cooling water cool melted out fuel that may have eaten through the final concrete floor of the ruined buildings.

    But if there had recently been an “explosive criticality,” wouldn’t there have been some pretty violent force released? Wouldn’t further damage (or at least a some massive shaking) have been visible (and perhaps caught on the live video-feed from the plant)


    Report comment

    • Grampybone Grampybone

      The fission releases will be small and not explosive until the melted core creates high levels of concentrated chemicals that could ignite. The releases of xenon gas are from the core coming into contact with an element that is reactive. It really depends on what chemical concentrates the melting cores come in contact with before we know what kinds of particles are being released. For example, if the core came in contact with seawater and concrete the radiation produced would quickly show Iodine because of the seawater and the concrete would produce cesium and elements such as sulfur 35. The kinds of releases will be as damaging as the reaction between chemicals and the core. TEPCO has no way of knowing what releases are to come and if volatile gasses will build up and ignite. It’s not a good situation.

        The Japanese people did not ask for this. The average person on this planet did not ask for any of this. No one was given a choice on nuclear. They and everyone else are victims of the ultimate greed and hubris of the powers that be.
        The Japanese people of this one world are suffering the most heinous of pollution that mankind has ever dreamed up. It does not go away and will continue to destroy lives in the most horrendous ways.
        Stopping this madness now is sadly the best that mankind can do for the future of this planet.
        The best that each individual can do right now is to have some compassion, and be as active as they can, to do whatever they can, to awaken the masses to this situation.

    I’m fed up with Japan’s government and TEPCO spewing radioactive material across the hemisphere and tainting everybody’s air and food and water. It’s bad enough that their reactors are continuing to release stuff, but then they decide it’s okay to spew even more at the world (including their own people) by burning stuff.

    Why should one country and one company be allowed to continue doing this for over seven months?

    State sovereignty is not a sufficient answer; they have been violating the air space and tainting the farmland of innumerable other sovereign states (as well as the internationally shared ocean) for nearly eight months.

    Yes, it’s important to distinguish the Japanese people from the corrupt government officials and corporate interests whose actions have made this mess even worse. But I think it’s inevitable that people are getting fed up with what Japan’s official representatives are allowing to be done to the planet and all of the people on it (including, most tragically of all, their own children).

    When is the world going to step up and say enough is enough? The Japanese government and TEPCO have been given enough time to try to get this mess under control. It’s time for them to get out of the way and let some sort of international team of engineers/scientists, etc-ones who don’t have an interest in downplaying the truth of the situation-step in and end this crisis.

    Until the Japanese government stops burning contaminated material and until they either get the plant crisis under control or they allow an outside team to go in and work on it, the rest of the world should boycott Japanese products.

    What happened in March was a tremendous natural disaster (albeit one compounded by a corrupt regulatory culture), but the way the tragedy has continued to unfold for the past seven months has a great deal to do with bad government and choices made by selfish individuals who were only looking to protect their own interests and…

      “Why should one country and one company be allowed to continue doing this for over seven months?”

      Because it is not just one company and one country that is allowing this to continue.

      It is the entire nuclear industry, military industrial complex that is involved in this. They know that they need the knowing or unknowing support of the people of this world, for them to exist.

      Which is oxymoronic in and of itself. They need the very people that they protect, to support them, so that they can have the tools to destroy them.

      The other factor here is that no one on this planet knows what to do to contain the disaster. This has never happened before on this scale.

      So it is the mentality that, you spilled the milk, you clean it up, cause I’m not gonna clean it up for fear that people will think that I am part responsible for spilling it.

      Sadly It is a conundrum with many facets, that will only play out with time and the outcome is unknown to everyone.

        I agree with what you say about many country’s (and international corporations) being implicated in this (especially the US and GE and probably the IAIE, France, Areva, etc. too).

        With regard to “The other factor here is that no one on this planet knows what to do to contain the disaster. This has never happened before on this scale.”

        That’s probably true. But I do think that a team of people from outside of Japan (and not including anyone with ties to GE) might be in a better position to look at it critically and somewhat more objectively that TEPCO and the Japanese government. At least outside people wouldn’t have to be worried about directly being blamed for what occurred, so they might be able to more candidly evaluate the current state of things.

        A couple of weeks ago, someone posted an editorial by a Canadian scientist saying how beneficial it was when they brought int he U.S. NRC (!!!) to review safety issues at some Canadian nuke plants, and how they pointed out things that may have been allowed to slide by domestic regulators (probably things that, in the US, the NRC would have let slide too–it’s amazing what a difference it can make when one’s immediate interests are not bound up with the problem).

        I’m not saying it wouldn’t be challenging to assemble a reasonably objective team. I also do not doubt that they may not be sure of what to do about the problem, but that is PRECISELY why the BEST engineers/scientists to be found in the world need to be brought together to solve it.

        The odds are that this accident didn’t happen to occur at a plant that already happened to have all of the best and brightest engineers/scientists in the world already working there, so even aside from problems resulting from bias, pride, and interest among Fuku-D’s own engineers, there’s also probably room for a lot more BRAINPOWER to be thrown at this problem.

        The best and brightest need to be brought in precisely because it is so…

          The Japanese requested assistance only from the U.S., Casto said. So President Barack Obama asked the leadership at the NRC to appoint a team and a team leader to travel to Fukushima and Daini on the eastern shores of Japan and help the owners, the private company Tokyo Electric Power Company, get the nuclear reactors cooled down and decontaminated and slowly get people back into their homes. Casto said he believes he was appointed to lead the team because he had both practical experience with nuclear power plants as he operated three plants in Alabama at one time in his career, but also had policy experience working as a legislative assistant for U.S. Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

            Maybe we need more than just nuke industry people–maybe we need scientists and physicists from academic contexts as well (yes–I realize the industry has much influence in those contexts). Nevertheless, perhaps some of those guys might approach the problem in some fresh, creative ways. While practical experience is of course necessary, sometimes people in an industry get locked into set ways of thinking and can’t see other alternatives–that’s why the more different ideas and perspectives they bring into this, the better.

              Maybe they could still construct something to catch/stop it (as the Soviets did) or even something that might cause the blob to separate in different directions so that it could cool, or perhaps they could somehow find a way to block or divert the groundwater away from its expected path.

      Some kind of external pressure must be brought to bear on Japan’s government if the Japanese people are not in a position to “take back” their government themselves. The growing anti-nuke protests are a good start, but sadly at the end of the day I think the ONLY thing that the Japan’s government officials and TEPCO understand is raw economic pressure.

      It was economic rationality that guided the bad decision-making that has caused this tragedy to be so bad. I think real economic pressure exerted on Japan is the only thing that might motivate the government to alter its course.

      What is most scary is that, if the crisis had happened here (in the US) or in France or anyplace else, I have no doubt it would have been handled just as badly, corruptly, short-sightedly, dishonestly, and selfishly as it has been handled over there.

          It could come from citizens, if not from the government. What if people around the world boycotted all Japanese products until the government 1.) evacuated all children from the badly contaminated places and 2.) stopped incinerating contaminated debris.

          Our government is corrupt. Their government is corrupt. Perhaps our people are corrupt too insofar as many are too preoccupied with their narrow little concerns to pay attention to what is happening.

          But with regular people, if they could be gotten to see the truth, they might be inspired to act in simple ways like doing without the latest electronic thing from Japan until that government changes its behavior. It’s not vested interests that are driving regular people’s behavior. It’s just apathy and ignorance.

    I believe they know a lot more than we do, and it doesn’t look like they are making any type of survival plans for the public.

    Some sort of plans for the public, should have already been put in place.
    For example, water coming out our faucets should have already be filtered.
    We pay for water, it should be as clean as it can be.

    I believe the plants at Fukushima can blow.
    I believe we have been getting continual fission events all along.
    I think we are either contaminated by Fukushima, or we will be
    I don’t believe they can clean this up or fix it.
    We are all in this mess together, and there is no way out.

    People there should leave, it’s dangerous. People who live in North America should also get out. We are all getting blasted.
    I believe there are safer places, I just don’t know for how long.

    Once people grasp what has happened, there could be violence and unlawfulness, if that happens then they could put Marshall Law in effect. They have things in that law, that you would not want.

    I think they all are insane with greed, power, or they are high on drugs and alcohol. Why would Countries build something dangerous, that can hurt the people and the environment.

      There is no doubt we are all contaminated at least somewhat by Fukushima (and most of us by Chernobyl and even the above-ground bomb testing as well). Once it’s in the air and soil and food, it never really goes away.

      We are all hibakusha.

      This is the WORLD’S problem. Not just Japan’s. The longer the world refuses to recognize that, the more contaminated it is going to get.

    Above link is to a new troll attempting to obliterate truth and confuse. He pretends to be a nuclear engineering student, but the responses don’t pass a 7th grader reality check.

    It is good to hit back against these lies, innocent people might read his lies and use that to feed their own need for denial of how bad it is.

    Well, the elites in their own words want a drastically reduced global population. And obviously judging by their actions over the recent decades and even centuries, saving lives is not high on their ‘to do’ list.

    It does look like they, many of them, might go down with the ship, here. Prudence, rationality are not part of the ‘grabfest’ gameplan.

    Repeating what I have said before – human beings on this planet have been engaged in a contest to gain power and make money and control wealth, and the governing rules of the game are to ‘do unto others (and exploit every financial opportunity, consequences be damned) before they can do unto you (and beat you to the punch).

    Just looking at human history (specifically the conduct of the elites), and the state of the planet, BEFORE Fukushima, pretty much proves that it has been a wide open game and that rational and responsible conduct/values just mean that someone else gets richer quicker than you do.

    This ‘analysis’ is self-evident – judge only by results – and staring us in the face whichever way we turn… we just don’t want to look at the evidence too hard. We’d rather think that the governing elites’ policies result from weak intellect or faulty analysis — in a word, from ‘mistakes.’

    At this point, is anything more crystal clear than that the elites do not give a tinker’s damn about us-the-masses and in fact (judge only by results) want several million of us ‘useless eaters’ dead?

      funny thing about these elites, if they were somehow superior, maybe in intelligence or physical capabilities or some other way, I could at least understand to a point why they think they are privy to special treatment. But look and listen to them, no big deal!

      I am an academic. I have been collecting data on Fukushima since March.

      I have already written a narration of events and created powerpoints on the disaster using confirmed data.

      I will share everything I have if you can help raise awareness on this issue.

  • Sorry.. my poor HTML skills mess up my previous comment. Maybe this will at least help you better access the info I’m referring to..

    This video (from Russia Today TV – http://www.rt.com ) from August, which includes video from the Japanese Parliament, confirms what you have reported here.

    If anyone here can verify the credibility of what’s been reported / the credentials of the expert who is interviewed, I would appreciate it.

  • Another – more recent – report on the finding of “hot particles” from Fukushima in the USA, by Marco Kaltofen of Worcester Polytechnic Institute…

    http://www.fairewinds.com/updates

    Washington, DC – October 31, 2011 – Today Scientist Marco Kaltofen of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) presented his analysis of radioactive isotopic releases from the Fukushima accidents at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA). Mr. Kaltofen’s analysis confirms the detection of hot particles in the US and the extensive airborne and ground contamination in northern Japan due to the four nuclear power plant accidents at TEPCO’s Fukushima reactors. Fairewinds believes that this is a personal health issue in Japan and a public health issue in the United States and Canada.

  • Fukushima,applying the precautionary principle,must have been prevented. Fukushima is breeding Fukushimas for possibly millennia. Till extinction breeds life when the next day of Brahma dawns. Thus we must abandon nuclear power forever. See

    Thanks to enenews for information and therefore it’s many contributors like in this Busby section on recriticalities galore. I must read also Majia’s link mentioned here. May the efforts of the good deliver health and harmony in these uncertain times.
