Hospital: Fukushima radiation may be eating holes in people’s brains — Report: Military brought in to hide true radiation levels — Experts: Officials covering up dire consequences of crisis… Worry over high number of cancers being detected — Public suffering radioactive-related diseases (VIDEO)

El País Semanal (Spanish newspaper), May 2, 2016 (emphasis added): Fukushima: Contaminated lives… Spanish media investigates how the 2011 Japanese tsunami changed the course of the country’s history… the Fukushima nuclear plant started to leak radiation that seeped insidiously into the atmosphere, the soil and the Pacific Ocean… Mr Toru Anzai, 63, wanders around the house he abandoned five years ago [in] Litate… Two years ago, he had a heart attack and a stroke… in the hospital they found a hole in the frontal lobe of his brain that was producing paralysis down the left side of his body. The doctor said it could have been caused by absorbing cesium over a period of time… [After the reactor explosion on] March 14, he heard a thunderous noise… It didn’t take long for the wind to bring the penetrating smell of melted iron mixed with sulfur to Litate as a massive toxic cloud blew towards his home. In spite of the mayor of Litate’s assurance that there was no risk of radiation, Mr Anzai bought his first dosimeter on April 18… the radiation in the room where he and his brothers had been sleeping for the past month was at six microSieverts an hour – 20 times higher than the level stipulated by the government for relocating residents…

Xinhua, May 23, 2016: Five years on, Fukushima remains shrouded in untold storiesSome of them suffer from radioactive-related diseases, and some are seeking help but having nobody to turn to. [Since] the Chernobyl nuclear disaster… various investigations and commemorations have never ceased… Yet on the Fukushima nuclear disaster, probes have always been wrapped in an ominous cloak for the past five years… However, concealing the truth will not lead people’s memory to oblivion, but arouse anger… One focal point is the local children’s poor health, especially thyroid cancer… The International Society for Environmental Epidemiology, a global organization, sent a message to the Japanese government this January expressing worry over the high incidence of thyroid cancer

Xinhua, May 23, 2016: A 2015 research found that children living near the Fukushima nuclear facilities are significantly up to 50 times more likely to develop thyroid cancer compared to those children living elsewhere in Japan. Data on radiation levels collected by Japanese volunteers near the Daiichi nuclear power plant is 8 to 10 times higher than the official number… Questions over the Fukushima aftermath have never ceased to pop up… Japan is concerned with its national image, food security, tourism, nuclear policy, medical compensation and possibility of public lawsuits… [none] of them should be the country’s excuse for preventing the post-disaster situation from being known to the public…

Xinhua, May 23, 2016: Children near Fukushima more likely to suffer from thyroid cancer… More than 160 teenagers in Fukushima Prefecture had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, including suspect cases… The Fukushima prefectural government doubted the cases were related to the nuclear disaster… Some nuclear experts were surprised by the Japanese government’s irresponsible and indifferent attitude.

Xinhua, May 23, 2016: Truths deliberately covered about Fukushima surface over five years — Facts about the Fukushima nuclear disaster… kept emerging over the past five years after the mishap took place, revealing the real face of the disaster. In front of the local government of Iidate Village in Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture [a device reads] 0.38 microsieverts/hour… However, volunteer Yoichi Tao who majored in physics said the figure of radiation on their own device is 8 to 10 times of the official one. According to Tao, the government dispatched the military to wipe out the nearby nuclear radiation on the ground in advance, so the official figure looks very low. “That’s how the government did it,” he said…

Xinhua, May 24, 2016: The improper handling of the Fukushima aftermath by the Japanese government has had grave consequences… a Russian radiation expert has said… Japan followed the suit of the former Soviet Union in playing down the disastrous consequences, said Valery Stepanenko, a leading specialist in medical and environmental dosimetry and radiation safety… the Japanese government attempted to hide the truth… After the disaster, lies and contradictive information emerged, making it impossible to decide the level of exposure…  “data of internal exposure were still left out,” he said… The consequence is diremore than 160 teenagers in Fukushima Prefecture have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, including suspect cases…

    Today I sent my eldest son off to the West to earn his fortune, while his younger brother graduates from a two year college (he is slated to go elsewhere to finish the undergrad degree).

    Needless to say, the future is cloudy.

    But, at least I have two sons who seem to be destined for what ever awaits them.

    They KNOW about Fukushima.

    The three of us know what our NOW is.

    To us all,

            If the bureaucracy is removed from nuclear power industry, does that mean the government will stop lying for them, subsidizing them, and turning off the radiation monitors, and making the public pay for the downside and sticking the public and the environment with the bill? If so, go Trump!

              Surely you are familiar enough with the political culture of this country to understand that when a Republican like Trump says we need to get government, and or government bureaucracy out of industry,what they mean is that those industries should be allowed to act as they damn well please and not have to abide by regulations; even regulations needed for environmental and public safety ? Do you seriously believe Trump would allow the nuke industry to go belly up from a lack of public funding ? Do you not think that Trump himself has cronies in the nuke industry, cronies that is that pat his back from time to time in exchange for the same ? Trump has already admitted, publically admitted at that,to his willingness to take advantage of our broken system for personal gain; but yet you say ''go Trump''because this Pro Money, Pro nuke, sociopathathic egomaniac wants to let the nuke industry operate free of government influence and or intervention !

        Buhner is a brilliant guy. I used his Lyme and tick-borne disease protocol to help give three + tick borne diseases when I was just shy of the grave. His protocol for treating Human Babesiosis (which I call the temperate region North American version of malaria) was fantastic. Almost killed me. Sat in front of a window in the hot sun for two months and had fevers, chills, and sweats. Slept about 20 hours per day for the better part of two months. But recovered.

        Used his protocol for Malaria used in China, fought the Babesiosis with TCM herbals, South American herbals, North American herbals.

        Buhner's grandfather was the Surgeon General of the U.S. His uncle was the Surgeon General of Kentucky. So not only is he an amazing herbalist, but he references all his work with international, medical peer-reviewed studies of the effectiveness of herbal treatments.

        He has a lot to say about the collective intelligence of bacterial populations. Lyme is a wickedly smart organism, for example. It has by far the most complicated bacterial genome ever decoded.

      "The caesium activity ratios indicate emissions from the core of unit 4 which had been unloaded into the fuel storage pool prior to the accident."

The building is literally barely standing . There is a huge blob of melted and solidified fuel visible on the outside of one of the annihilated concrete walls. The roof is blown away. The pics that Tepcon shows to the public of the "reactor 4 sfp unloading" are obviously a completely different building altogether. Likely reactor 5 or 6. There is 0% chance they offloaded reactor 4 spent fuel assemblies since they burned up and blew away. The pics of the building are irrefutable

      skip to 19 minute mark. Looks like unit 4 just a couple of months before 2012 was quite the radioactive shitshow.

      They are still trying to contain Chernobyl 25 years after the fact. Building a 2.5 billion dollar sarcophagus for that mess.

      What part of radioactive shitshow don't you understand?

      Why would you say someone was a nutjob for not believing that only a couple of years after Fukushima trouble began they got that shit under control? I would say you are nuttier than peanut butter

    • unincredulous unincredulous

      Pictures? Where's the movies? Where's the real reporting? Where's a decent live feed? Oh it's all trade secret, huh? I'd say at this point the whole world has a right to never every damn thing going on in Japan. All those guys in chem suits and masks, like who the hell are they? Where are the casks. 135 pictures, several repeats.

      I have considered that you are joking.

      I would strongly suspect that they built that thing around unit 4 to put lead shielding over what's left of the spent fuel pool.

      Why the superstructure so heavy if it's not for a giant lead shield? I mean shit, look at that giant tube steel. Where the heck did they get something like that? Certainly not at Lowe's.

      They went to unit four to work like way before every other reactor there. Why? Because they were afraid it would collapse. So maybe they drilled anchors into the cement structure that was remaining, and the whole reactor building is hanging from that structure by cables, in case it collapses. Plus the lead shielding.

      Yes, it could just be a mock up or another reactor. They could not find a decent Photoshop guy…

      • Cooter

        The continuing story of the spent fuel pools, comes this report by the U.S. National Academies and presented in part by

        In the report they talk about the SFP #4 in a technical manner with a conclusion as to why Unit 4 SFP was saved, quote:

        "As part of routine maintenance, workers had flooded Unit 4’s reactor well, where the core normally sits. Separating the well and the spent fuel pool is a gate through which fuel assemblies are transferred. The gate allowed water from the reactor well to leak into the spent fuel pool, partially refilling it. Without that leakage, the academy panel’s own modeling predicted that the tops of the fuel assemblies would have been exposed by early April; as the water continued to evaporate, the odds of the assemblies’ zirconium cladding catching fire would have skyrocketed. "

        There are more problems with this statement than meets the eye. These are discussed in the "comment section" having 37 comments and is well worth reading.

    • unincredulous unincredulous

      Maybe they built a water pool over the remains of the burned out fuel pool. To shield the radiation. Plus lead maybe.

      I have seen photos where supposedly a new green SF crane was installed. How do we know it wasn't a picture of the old crane being removed? If they have a video, how do we know they didn't reverse the video of the old crane being removed?

      Where is the old crane, if they removed it? Where is the video of that?

      I don't believe nothing those lying sacks of shit present. Especially while they expose civilian population to 20 msv/hr. Where is the hazard pay for those non-nuclear workers working in a nuclear worker environment?

      Profits up 60 percent while they walk around with their pockets turned inside out and say, "ain't got no money."

      Whole damned countryside dug up and put into plastic bags. Stacked up too neatly. They will never move those bags from where they are right now. They will put some kind of concrete over them most likely, and erect more nuclear plants on top of them, since the land is good for nothing else. Those bags are designed to last for just a couple of years and they are torn and deteriorating already.

        To make the experiment better, you construct the thing from concrete. Put some stick of dynamite in it. With a torch, you catch it on fire!…let it burn for several hours. Then let it explode from unknown explosives….blowing it to smithereens. The side with dynamite no longer holds water and drains out….then watch! Water from the other side refills it, good as new.

        Repeat,…it works again! Amaze your friends! How did it blow up? Who knows, who cares? reach in and remove the dynamite and store it in your shed with a bunch of other dynamite…so full theres no room, but you can make room, dont worry

Thats the wierdest gray blob…

          pretty good proof that this is Unit 4 Daichi. The new structure didnt cover the equipment pool. Tepco likes to put a bunch of guys just standing around doing nothing, even though it was lethal in 15 minutes a few years ago. Were they present when the robotic equipment went kaput? They are saying the SFP in the foreground had a crack, leaked its water, then the water from the round reactor area leaked through those double doors and filled it back up.

    Looking for the next meltdown. Only 5 other reactors next to the most dangerous one. And then there are all the experimental reactors hoping to make money, like nuclear fusion reactors.

    “The Kozloduy nuclear power plant sprawls across the rural Bulgarian countryside, nearly hidden in a valley behind gently rolling hills until we are nearly upon it and see the vent stacks piercing above the hills and then an array of lights before we can make out the two containment buildings holding the 5th and 6th units, and the drab green industrial buildings where units 1 through 4 silently split atoms.
    “As we drive along near the massive plant site, stopping by the side of the road so everyone can take photographs, we are of course not aware that inside Unit 6 operators are scrambling to repair the serious accident that took place just hours ago: a main feedwater pump broke, endangering the reactor and everyone for miles….”

    Statin drug sorcery does the same thing by depriving the brain of cholesterol. Anything for a dollar.

    • This research revealed that withdrawal of statins led to a statistically significant improvement in cognition in the study subjects. Re-starting statin therapy led to cognition worsening again. The implication here is that for individuals with dementia, statin treatment might further compromise brain function and, along with it, quality of life and dependence of carers.

      Just this week, I saw an elderly man in practice who came with a main diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, and a past history of more than one ‘mini-strokes’ (known as transient ischaemic attacks). One of the medications which he takes is simvastatin. His daughter wondered whether this might be somehow compromising her father’s health, including his mental functioning. The only legitimate answer to her question is ‘yes’. But as I went on to explain, it is in my view highly unlikely that any problems here are likely to be entertained by her father’s regular doctor.

    "90% of the Fukushima Ice Wall is working as expected. However, one large Japanese Press outlet spins it in reverse fashion. The Asahi Shimbun, Japan’s second-largest newspaper, headlines that 10% of the ice wall is not working. Tepco records show that 88% of the monitoring points show the ground to be frozen. The remaining 12% have recorded temperature drops, but have yet to freeze. At least one of the 1,568 monitoring points has a recorded temperature of just 10oC, which becomes the focal point of the Asahi’s negative spin. Back in March when Tokyo allowed the system to begin running, Tepco said it could take as long as three months for the entire wall to form. But, the Asahi fails to mention this, rather posting that it has been a month-and-a-half and not all of the ground is frozen, so something is allegedly wrong. Pressured by the Asahi for a statement, a Nuclear Regulation Authority official said, “If the effects of the frozen soil wall fall short of what we have expected, we will hold talks with TECPO about additional steps.” (Comment – No other news outlet in Japan reported a Tepco ice wall failure…only The Asahi.)"

  • PhilipUpNorth PhilipUpNorth

    The Frozen Wall will probably need some sort of solid wall inland in order to divert the flow of 1,000 tonnes per day of water from the underground river away from the Frozen Wall.
    Flowing water will greatly increase the amount of electricity needed to keep the ground frozen.

    I expect they will use this opportunity to complete the Impermeable Wall, made of interlocking sheet steel pilings, to entirely enclose Units1-4.
    Here is what the Impermeable Wall looks like.

    Most ENEnewsers believe that one or more nuclear cores are ex-reactor building, in the earth beneath.
    Since the corium has ongoing criticalities (proven by emissions of Iodine-131), it must still be very hot.
    We now have the area around Units1-4 cut off from flowing groundwater.
    Still water can be expected to produce radioactive steam, when in contact with the corium crust.
    Hopefully, the corium has penetrated well into the sandstone bedrock at the site, and is now well below the aquifer.
    If the corium is at the bottom of a long water-filled corium lava tube, steam will be condensed by the cold water as it rises in the lava tube.
    ENEnewsers should be watching for evidence of increased airborne emissions from FDNPP, that can be traced back to the Frozen Wall.
    Webcam watchers should be especially vigilant for changes in visable night-time emissions.

    FOIA Documents
    There was a lot of confused conversation anong US NRC personnel early-on in the Fukushima disaster.

    Picture a group of Americans in a borrowed Japanese government conference room, trying to make sense of the hysterical reports coming out of FDNPP, and circulating in the halls of the nuclear power industry regulators.
    The language barrier, distance, exploding reactors, dangerous conditions, and lack of data, made coming up with a clear picture of what was happening at Fukushima nearly impossible.
    The FOIA Documents mostly concern the sharing of incomplete information with NRC executives back in the States.

    Remember that, at the time, there were only a few people at the site, working in a black out, trying to power up temperature and pressure guages with scavenged car batteries.
    So even those on site had little viable data to go on.
    Not surprisingly, some of the information in the FOIA Documents turned out to be wrong. 😉

      Ya, Doc.
      I read your May, 2016 story on Unit 4.

      One problem:

      "Unit 4 SFP: between 1,331 – 1,550 irradiated (used) fuel assemblies…

      According to the following source, there are

      7,900 fuel (assemblies) in the SFP #4 Spent Fuel Pool "

      There were Not 7,900 fuel assemblies in SFP 4, but only 1,331 spent fuel assemblies.

      Not to say that your work is not generally good, and that your contribution to knowledge about Fukshima is, in fact, very valuable.
      But you are wrong about Unit 4 SFP.

      We all know how cheap Tepco is, at least where Fukushima Decommissioning is concerned.
      They built the Unit 4 SFP Defueling Building, not by way of coverup (for there are many ways to cover up a disaster like this, without putting up a structure like this. But they DID build it. They DID empty SFP 4, like it or not.

      Now, they are building a similar Unit 3 SFP Defueling Building.
      Tepco is the last corporation that would be going to such lengths, if there was no fuel left in SFP 3 to recover.
      Don't you think? 😉

  • PhilipUpNorth PhilipUpNorth

    Hey, Tepco and Japan:
    You really think you can hide what you were doing at FDNPP?
    And what happened there.
    What is happening as a result.
    Eventually the truth will come out.

    We really don't like Japan allowing Tepco to destroy the evidence of what happened at Fukushima.
    All in the name of the "decommission".

    Let's hope that there are documents, radiation data, photos, videos, and communications, still in existence, that paint an accurate picture of what happened at Fukushima on 3/11/2011 and thereafter.

    Let's begin with this:
    (Da Uppers wanna know.)

    PhilipUpNorth: Dr. Goodheart only intention is to direct traffic from this site to his site. Creating controversial situations, omitting facts or ignoring the obvious is all the better for Dr. Goodheart to attract readers to his own site. He could care less if what he posts is true or not as long as it arouses interest in his site. i.e. global warming, Trump, Unit 4 fuel removal, etc., are all hot button topics to up the visitor count on his website.

    Otherwise, it is mute points about Daiichi. Once containment(s) was found to be lost, everyone packed up and went home. The special military nuke response team, the US Navy, GE employees and anybody with a brain fled the site.

    Anyone that comprehends, throws up their hands. Arnie says entomb it, Helen says there is nothing they can do about it, Japan says live with it, US ignores it, nuke apologists say why worry about it…all because nothing can be done. They can't even slow the radioactive releases down.

    In comparison, I think initially Chernobyl was much worse but on a accumulative basis, Daiichi (without containment) has far exceeded Chernobyl in radioactive fallout releases and will continue to do so.

    If they don't unload the remaining damaged fuel pools, things can get even worse.

    • Razz, if that is the intent, then there would be NO links back to ENenews, correct?

      Read just about any article on AGR, and it will have links to ENENEWS, as the BEST source for nuclear news that is not covered anywhere else.

      There are links and videos on AGR to EVERY nuclear expert, even if some people disagree with some of their stuff or it is controversial.

      No one will agree with everything you say, or that AGR posts, or that anyone else says here. Take what works and leave the rest.

      If AGR articles offer no value, don't read them. Simple really.


      • There are plenty of people saying ENenews, Arnie Gunderson, Dana, Kevin Blanch and everyone anti nuclear including AGR, are nothing but liars and frauds.

        Funny you guys bring up that dot connector. After I saw those disasters waiting to happen blow sky-high I thought there was going to be major alarms for the west coast and Iodine pills handed out but all I found was silence! I couldn't even come close to convincing people how bad it was! The first place I found any talk or testing was the guy aforementioned. His trips around B.C. wiping the windshield and testing it spelled it out clearly the raindrops were hot! No surprise! He never showed his face. The next thing I found was some ditsy lady saying where the produce grown in Cali was then just as she was about to get near the food…POOF! My bad-ass blue ray playin' laptop was kaput! Months later I discovered ENE and started learning from good people like Dr. Goodheart, whom deserves respect RAZZ! But I have seen good posts from RAZZ so maybe he has been hijacked!

    Something CAN, AND MUST, be done about Fukushima!

    Fukushima can be fixed by technology humanity currently has.

      • Angela_R

        "if it's still active…."

        you mean still fissile?

        Are the webcams still working?

        However it is possible the Te-132 could be coming from a different source, for instance:

        Could it be coming from one of the Radioactive Ion Beam facilities in Europe?

        “gamma-ray spectroscopy of Te-132 through beta decay of a Sb-132 radioactive beam”

        • MVB MVB

          @ Angela_R >"you mean still fissile?"

          Still fissioning, yes. They might have been producing weapons-grade fissile materials in an experimental plutonium-thorium figuration, though. " 😉 "

          I know, it's fun to google something, find something probably completely unrelated, and then… okay I don't get that part, but whatever: and post it here, as if somehow offering a clue (???).

          Yes, Antimony-132 decays into Tellurium-132 in less than 3 minutes, and they learned some things about the decays paths from one to the other. So? Come on… "Could it be coming from one of the Radioactive Ion Beam facilities in Europe?" In a concentration 100 x higher than what was detected after Fukushima? Coinciding with gamma detectors showing abnormalities all over? You know of an Ion Beam Facility even capable of creating that kind of fallout cloud? (Freak'n knock it off on the bs links! Jeez.)

          Look: Something shifted in spring 2015. The Co60 concentration and ratios to other detections strongly suggest Fukushima is where it's coming from, and suggests "still fissioning"! 2016, we've seen the highest measurements of Te-132 & Cs-137 since 1986, and the highest of Ru-103 since 2011, all accompanied with widespread upticks, disturbances, records being broken and data gaps all over. This is very clearly NOT some "Radioactive Ion Beam facilities in Europe". There's a MASSIVE ongoing releases coming from an exposed core that has -at least- recurring…

      Would it be possible that the river is cooling it enough so it is not boring down into the earth but lingering maybe even in the basement? If the flow is stopped maybe it could get hotter or catch fire and put out huge atmospheric releases? I hope these people know. It may be the plan to just sit back and watch the planet die because there's no way known how to deal with it…as they have been saying! So let the river flow for decades or centuries..maybe humans can fix this before all of us are shut down every one on the planet me thinks!

      • Angela_R


        There are a number of people who viewed the webcams, day after day. I made a few visits there, and each time thought that what some referred to as fog, was steam. Would have missed many indications that others observed; but one in particular I have not forgotten. Unsure now of the time, perhaps late 2014. There was an explosion, a pink haze and I believe a 'cloud' rose, but not the type of cloud that was shown in March 2011.

        • tinfoilhatbrian tinfoilhatbrian

          Angela, the evidence of steam sounds like the cooling may not be regular, so if there is not enough cooling steam would be produced. That might indicate that stopping the river flowing through is a bad idea without an equal alternate! Unfortunately with the information given to us it is hard to tell anything other than it is real bad! I am enjoying life as much as I can as long as I can! Peace!

      • ISeePinkClouds

        tinfoilhatbrian. I think that MVB's research convincingly concludes that Fukushima is on-going, and that it is much worse than most can imagine. But you are exactly right, Ineptco is walking on thin ice.

        MVB's research proves that fission is on-going, regardless of exactly what is happening, or where the coria are. His research also shows that those releases of radionuclides, and isotopes, are in large enough of a quantity to be at levels detectable all over this planet.

        I think Ineptco should be thinking as about criticalities, and super-criticalities, and not about building walls. Maybe they are. Then again, maybe Ineptco cannot, for any number of reasons, remove any of the fuel from any of the reactors, and is also unable to mitigate, or eliminate criticalities.

        My personal take is that Fukushima is much worse than I can ever imagine, even if I had all the facts. One thing I am certain of is that the more I know about Fukushima, the more I realize the need to combat radiation on a personal level.

        • ISeePinkClouds

          Not reactors. I meant to say, reactor buildings. Sorry.

          • MVB MVB

            @ ISeePinkClouds – Tx, but it doesn't *proof* it. The argument is strengthening towards that being almost certainly the case. But proof is darn hard to get to scientifically. If I could proof it, maybe I'd file an arrest request with interpol and have a couple hundred folks dragged to The Hague to be tried for crimes against humanity.

            Not there yet. 😉

            • ISeePinkClouds

              Yes. MVB. Ty. You have made many amazing discoveries. I think that you already have proven the ongoing fission, ongoing world wide deposition of those fission products, and that Fukushima is the source. It may be that with Fukushima, empirical evidence is all that we will have to draw conclusions from.

    The Fukushima clean-up team remains in the dark about the exact locations of 600 tons of melted radioactive fuel from three devastated nuclear reactors, the chief of decommissioning told the ABC's Foreign Correspondent program in an exclusive interview. The company hopes to locate and start removing the missing fuel from 2021, the Tokyo Electric Power Company's (TEPCO) chief of decommissioning at Fukushima, Naohiro Masuda, revealed. The fuel extraction technology is yet to be elaborated upon, he added. Following the tsunami-caused 2011 meltdown at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant uranium fuel of three power generating reactors gained critical temperature and burnt through the respective reactor pressure vessels, concentrating somewhere on the lower levels of the station currently filled with water. The melted nuclear fuel from Reactor 1 poured out completely, estimated 30 to 50 percent of fuel from Reactor 2 and 3 remained in the active zone, Masuda said. The official estimates that approximately "200 tons of [nuclear fuel] debris lies within each unit," which makes in total about 600 tons of melted fuel mixed up with metal construction elements, concrete and whatever else was down there. Five years after the Fukushima tragedy, the exact location of the highly radioactive "runaway" fuel remains mystery for TEPCO. The absolutely uncontrollable fission of the melted …

    • They are promising to clean up the melted fuel.

      What if it is two miles down under multiple reactors and spent fuel pools?

      They promise to go down there and get it, and bring it up to the surface?

      Don't think so…

          I'm concerned that some smaller pieces of corium are suspended in the aquifer.

      3. There has been almost daily activity around the area of the Dominican Republic for at least a couple of years now.
      4. Around 4 or 5 or so years ago, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge saw quite a bit of activity, as well…and at the time…ElHierro was being watched lest a chunk of the Canary Islands fall into the sea…then…3 or so (?) years ago the only transportation tunnel to Tenerife was closed…seriously affecting tourism.

    Fri May 27, 2016 5:23pm
    Near miss at Fukushima is a warning for U.S May 27, 2016
    ..They feared that spent fuel stored in pools in the reactor halls would catch fire and might send radioactive smoke across a much wider swath of eastern Japan, including Tokyo. Thanks to a lucky break detailed in a report released last week by the U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, Japan dodged that bullet.
    A recently released National Academy of Sciences report has raised fresh concerns about how a natural disaster would affect facilities that store spent nuclear fuel.
    The Union of Concerned Scien­­tists hailed the report, but both the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Georgia Power downplayed its significance.
    The report is the second installment of an investigation the NRC requested the academy to make of the circumstances following a massive 2011 earthquake in Japan that led to explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. This report dealt with the pools of water that spent fuel is stored in to keep it safely cooled and the casks used in dry storage.
    The report details what happened to each pool and cask…

  • Correction to 'Science'. Tokyo did NOT dodge a bullet. That can only be done in the science fiction movies, not real life.

    In fact, the Japanese caught that radioactive Bullet in the gut. Whether or not that radioactive bullet is fatal or not, will be seen.

When that kind of attitude extends into the operations of nuclear power plants, nothing but trouble will follow. And that’s the kind of trouble that none of us, not even Exelon, needs."

    Taking a look at the past, present and future of nuclear facilities in the US, Friday’s special report seeks to fill in the gap about America’s crumbling radioactive infrastructure that the mainstream media has ignored.

    Harnessing nuclear energy ‒ both civilian and military ‒ has both helped the world… and put it at risk. RT America’s Alexey Yaroshevsky and Simone Del Rosario explore how nuclear power feeds cities with energy ‒ and how leaks from those same plants can destroy the lives of those nearby.

        Yes. from a distance. Ty. I saw each of these reports when they were released. I appreciate the way they are all grouped together here in one link. The Nuclear America: Special Report, that came out yesterday, I also saw on RT. RT is bringing awareness to many about this big problem (Nuclear) know mostly by a few. I really appreciate their work.
        I did read your comment on the video shortly after you posted it. I appreciate your work as well. It is time consuming to transpose from video. I thought it was a tremendous synopsis of the video. It certainly drives home the point in a memorable way. These two being the most frightening, to me:

        * there is damage to "more than one quarter of the baffle former bolts, which are bolts that hold together the baffles that allow coolant water to operate and circulate freely through the reactor"

        * "pieces of the metallic bolts…have actually fallen into the reactor and we don't know where they are"

        These reactors are issues too big to ignore, but they are ignored.

        There are plans to ship Hanford waste to WIPP. WIPP is nearby. I have experienced what vented radiation from WIPP can to do one's health, and life, and I don't want any more of it. People here, myself included, within a three hundred mile radius of WIPP, cannot, in my opinion, survive, more releases from WIPP.

        Ever'body I know ever'where got troubles.

    "What the Japanese government is doing now is denying the fact that Japanese soldiers committed atrocities and the Japanese nation as a whole committed the war of aggression". There's a strong whiff in recent media stories of White House appeasement, seeking to convince us that Obama's Hiroshima visit is not what it is.

    It is essential that we avoid a renewed costly and unsafe nuclear arms race with the Russians and Chinese."

    "Japanese nationalists will declare vindication of the empire and of the Japanese people, even if the president insists we are all culpable for war and its effects, and pacifists will imagine this is a step toward the end of nuclear weapons despite new USA investments and Japan's open embrace of the nuclear deterrent".

    Obama talks 'out of the side of his neck', about a reduction in nuclear weapons, while doing anything possible to start a nuclear war.

    China urges Japan not to repeat militarism with Obama's Hiroshima visit

    The Chinese are correct.
    Our illustrious allies sought more than comfort.

    It is past time, well past time to move past atrocities (it would help if we could quit performing them) towards each other, and LEARN.
    Learn to face the common enemy before us…
