10.50 microsieverts in Tokyo train, Oamishirasato, September 13, 2011:

8-26-2011 I took a train to Narita airport only to find it was highly radioactive. My SOEKS Gieger [sic] counter was off the charts in detecting radiation. However the People sitting next to me did not care at all even after I explained to them how dangerous this amount of radiation was. Please make this video viral and warn people not to take the trains since they have not been decontaminated yet.

    Researchers to study effects of radiation on Fukushima marine life to rejuvenate fisheries

    IWAKI, Fukushima — Authorities here will study how radioactive cesium effects marine life in a bid to rejuvenate local fisheries in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

    The Fukushima prefectural fisheries experiment station in Iwaki will launch an experiment study in October on how fish and shellfish take in cesium and how long it will take to reduce the effects of cesium by keeping marine life in cesium-laced water tanks.

    While coastal fishing in Fukushima has been suspended following the crisis at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant and the ensuing release of radiation-contaminated water into the ocean, local authorities are seeking to find ways to secure the safety of marine life for the future recovery of Fukushima fisheries.

    According to a survey by the prefectural fisheries experiment station that concluded on Sept. 12, levels of radioactive cesium exceeding the government’s provisional safety limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram have been detected in 18 out of 94 varieties of fish and shellfish caught along the coast off Fukushima.


  • People walking in from the streets on-board will only re-contaminate !

    I fail to see how his meter is “off the charts”. Perhaps he can switch the scale? That being said, that train is most certainly contaminated. I am not at all surprised as to the demeanor of the passengers. The majority of the people in Japan appear to have chosen to ignore the dangers.

    Radiation is higher in the london tube and us subway systems I know, because the granite rock naturally releases more than the open air.

      there is no granite in london its a chalk clay substrata ..but will check out the underground sometime anyway!

    Japan’s Fukushima power plant needs to be buried in concrete now

    • No matter what they do at this point, radiation and steam/gases will find thier way to the surface through force in a slow or fast way, they missed the point of confinement in the first days after melt through !
      This may have all been avoided if there had been drop rooms to catch the coriums under each reactor !
      In these rooms lead balls, boron and multi enternal cooling water supply loops !

    • Bobby1

      Burying the plant in concrete is not going to help much by itself. The problem is re-criticalities in the corium, it needs to be covered and injected with boron, which will absorb neutrons. If that happens, it will eventually cool down by decay.

      There are no indications that Tepco knows this, believes this, is capable of doing this, or that it even knows where the corium is.

    death in the air.

  • …Fishes eating up all the radiation, then dying.

    So new fishes will not have any radiation, except for two heads and a finger.

    …Duhh…Easy to protect from radiation on Japan trains.

    Wear heavy leather soles so can squish radiation thingies into dust, then sweep away into garbage bins and send garbage to North Korea.

      Unfortunately, there is no way to get rid of radiation. The new fishes will also have radiation. All the gravesites and landfills will also be radioactive. And since plutonium and uranium are still being mine or processed, there will be even more radiation all the time.

      Stop. I want to get off that train.

    10.6 microsieverts/hr of what isotope exactly??

      thanks.. will sleep with grin on face now
      gnight all!

    • Yes remember these old mags articles and pics’ and dream machines, notice the GM appearance design !

      THX !

    Trains are not the only transportation that has radiation.

    Lets spread the rads some more. Get those shipments in.. (Sarc)

    Subcontracted assemblies included wing manufacture (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Japan, central wing box)


  • So… are the people bringing it in on their shoes and dust or is the train passing through contaminated ‘high level’ pockets. (or both)

    How do the produce and foods get shipped? Can it become contaminated during transport via train shipment? How might that occur? Rain?

    So it’s possible the produce gets tested as safe then is shipped via train before being sold. That would be regrettable.

    This says to me that rad detectors need to be at the point of food purchase or thereabouts for the ‘absolute’ safety of the consumer. Otherwise, it may get contaminated during shipment and you would never know. (until several years later, depending on the dose)

    I would think it should be tested at all phases of processing, storage and transport. Wouldn’t that be prudent? Shouldn’t that be ordered ‘stat!’?

    • WindorSolarPlease

      Hi ChasAha,

      Yes that should be done. All shipments coming from that area should either be stopped or checked.
      I know I would not want that job, to check those shipments.

      We also have to ask, does it matter any more? Is our Country already contaminated?

    y’know, ya caint tell nobody to do differnt.
    I can tell a woman: your State Health Department
    says, officially, by law, that you should thoroughly
    wash, rinse, and AIR DRY your dishes, pots and pans.
    But NOOOOOO,
    because SHE was raised doing it, SHE grabs a nasty
    dish-towel, and WIPES whatever contamination was
    present on the towel ONTO the nice clean dishes.
    Because that’s the way her Gramma taught her.
    So Goes the collapse of civilization.
