Royal Society of Chemistry, National Institute for Physics & Nuclear Engineering, Romania, 2015 (emphasis added): AMS analyses of I-129 from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident in the Pacific Ocean waters of the Coast La Jolla, San Diego, USA — This paper presents the results of an experimental study we performed by using the Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) method with iodine 129 (Halflife = 15.7 Million years], to determine the increase of the radionuclide content in the USA West Pacific Coast waters, two years after the March 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident… The results of the experiments showed a significant increase of the radionuclide concentration during the late spring of 2013. Compared to the isotopic ratio 129I/127I, measured at a 40 km distance, offshore of Fukushima and immediately after the accident, our results show an increase on the USA West Coast that was more than a 2.5 factor higher. Also, compared with the pre-Fukushima background values [in San Diego], our results show an isotopic ratio of about two orders of magnitude higher

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant… released an enormous amount of liquid waste of 129I and other fission isotopes directly into the Pacific Ocean that were subsequently dispersed eastwards. This paper reports on the determination of the nuclear plume impact on the West Coast of the USA that happened during April–July 2013… The determined maximum 129I concentration increase was in an amount of more than 2 times greater than the concentration of the isotope measured offshore of Fukushima at a 40 km distance immediately after the accident…

129I concentrations were measured… from the ocean water of the West Coast of the USA [at] La Jolla, San Diego… This work reports two sudden increases of the 129I/127I isotopic concentration in the ocean water, which were observed at the end of spring 2013…

Our exploratory measurements on the USA West Coast started on samples collected at the beginning of 2013. The lowest 129I concentrations that we measured had values between [6-20 million] atoms per L. Such values correspond to the equilibrium concentration of iodine… offshore of La Jolla, San Diego…

Our results… measured offshore of Cove La Jolla, San Diego, USA, during the spring of 2013, are presented in Fig. 5. Two high and distinct spike maxima are visible. They reveal the maximum concentration values of [1.2 billion] atoms per L measured on May 24, 2013 and [1.7 billion] atoms per L measured on June 18, 2013, with 24 days in between. Both peaks occurred in the measurement spectrum after a slow increase in concentration that started about 15-20 days before the main increase…

Samples collected [by Fukushima Daiichi, Jun 2011] at a distance of about 40 km away from the coast [had] a maximum concentration value of [620 million] atoms per L for 129I in the surface water of the ocean. Taking into account this value as a reference value, the maximum 129-iodine concentration reaching the USA West Coast was 2.5 times stronger than in the contaminated ocean water offshore of Fukushima after the accident. If we compare it to the equilibrium value of 129I concentration in the ocean water [near San Diego], then during the impact its concentration was about 100 times higher

AMS measurements of 129I were performed on ocean water… offshore of Cove La Jolla, San Diego, USA, and definitely have shown an increase of the radioactivity more than two orders of magnitude over the natural level of the Pacific Ocean before the accident

      This is why we continue to take iodine supplements daily. Nascent Iodine is a good one. Can't recommend a source at this time, but someone else probably can. We use Lugol's solution, but Nascent Iodine is probably better. Lugol's contains Potassium Iodide (part of the solution) which isn't the best option, we've read.

      "Now they tell us" about the Iodine 129. But we've known about it here for a long time, right?

      Steady drib, drab, drip of information. We need to be proactive in protecting ourselves, our loved ones, our health.

      Studies typically take several years to complete. Then the authors must go through the process of edits, technical edits, and publishing.

      The normal timeframe for many publications to appear is two to five years. The timefram is dependent upon the complexity of the study, amount of data, amount of text, and several other factors.

      There are also publishing deadlines to be met. The timeframe is related to the type of publication where the study is published. Publishing can take time, as well.

      I'm not familiar with the peer review process, but this might be a factor as well.

    August 2012 "31 times as much Iodine-129 than I-131 from Fukushima.
    The EPA document “Health Risks from Low-Level Environmental Exposure to Radionuclides” (available here) indicates the mortality risk for I-129 is about 3 times that of I-131. This is mainly from thyroid cancer."

    • PlowboyGrownUp

      Comments in 'optimalprediction' link has informative info, also he has charts there.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      OK, so a leading question here is, if there is so much more Iodine 129 on the West Coast of N. America, what is it doing to risk of Thyroid Cancer?

      What do our Thyroid Cancer stats show? We know there has been a huge increase in Thyroid Cancers in Japan, especially in areas close to
      FDNPP #1.

      What is the known increase near FDNPP #1? A six-fold, or 600% + increase?

      How long is the latency period for exposure to I129? Is it the same, or longer than exposure to I131? Has anyone looked at this? Is it even possible to determine which of these isotopes has caused a cancer?

      All worthwhile questions to consider, IMHO. Wondering what Chris Busby may have to say about this.

      • theworldisalie theworldisalie

        I would also like to state that since there is such an increase in I-129 it's reasonable to assume there a lot more of everything else as well….

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          Absolutely, you are spot on, theworldisalie. Yes, there is surely a LOT of other drek out there, along with the toxic radioactive Iodine.

          Those of us who were alive during the atmospheric weapons testing era are getting a double-whammy now, here on the West Coast.

          I suppose it's bad everywhere. There is no getting away from this mess.

          • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

            HoTaters, I guess I will take the que; its the toxicity, not the amount of radiation. The amount of radiation from the nuclear test era is considered less than one percent of background radiation, and only peaked at some 5%. Current estimates are that Fukushima is less than the bomb test era. SimplyInfo compares to Chernobyl here
            http://www.fukuleaks.org/web/?p=11668

            • HoTaters HoTaters

              Just meant for some of us, there has been a lot of cumulative exposure.

              • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                HoTaters, the cumulative exposure is there, I agree completely. But it is also there for the natural internal radiation and the radon and cosmic rays. The cumulative radiation exposure to natural sources is much higher than from fallout for anybody but those closest to nuclear disasters. So the question becomes one of toxicity, not radiation exposure…as measured in radiation decay events. Its a crucial point and must be understood if one is going to debate effectively

            • HoTaters HoTaters

              It's hard to say what has transpired since atmospheric weapons testing ended. Toxicity, yes.

              And every individual's circumstance and response is different. And exposure.

              Exposure is, in some sense, like genetic roulette. And only predictable across a broad sample population size.

              The idea of "one percent above background levels is not meaningful."

              What comprises background levels? Like comparing gerbils and gorillas.

              • HoTaters HoTaters

                The quotes were supposed to be around "background levels."

                • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                  well…HoTaters, if one listens to mainstream science…and everyone does, then background radiation and cesium from Fukushima are on about an equal footing, toxicity wise, while background is 1000x more, by measured radioactive decays. If you look at bioaccumulation, there are some very high numbers…up to 10,000x and higher. But for most organisms, and even the tested plankton, the bioaccumulation is only in the tens of times. So bioacummulation alone does not explain why fukushima fallout could be destroying the ocean life. Even the ECRR coefficients raise the toxicity to a level approximately equal to background. Yet life flourished with background radiation and the ocean was not full of starving, dying and deformed animals. Scientists therefor conclude that theorized climate change must be the reason, and they discount approximately 10,000 hiroshima bombs of fallout from Fukushima. That is why we look at the toxicity of background radiation. It appears to be far less toxic than assumed by the ICRP which deduces toxicity from bomb victims… Some forms of radiation may be not harmful, in the over all balance of biology. Its an important point

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          theworldisalie,…the paper states that over all, radiation is about 10 bq/m^3 in the ocean from fallout. Concluding that the radiation is 1000 bq/m3 based on the Iodine spike is probably an error.

          The atoms per liter has to be converted to becquerels and then some toxicity assigned to it in order to be meaningful.

          • theworldisalie theworldisalie

            What I'm stating is that it isn't just Iodine, it's all the others as well, which isn't ever going to be anything else than bad. Right?

            Elevated levels of the one, you can assume the others are there which equals toxic shit for everyone.

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              I agree completely theworldisalie. All the bad stuff is there in the fukushima fallout. Individually bad, collectively bad, and bad in unknown ways along the biological cycle. the question might be the numbers. if you were to talk radiation numbers with a Buesseler type, then the argument doesnt hold up unless you can quantify the toxicity.

              My conversion attempt was .0024 bq per cubic meter of the iodine. Lets say I messed up and its 10x that, 0.024 bq/m3. Now you add in all the other stuff, hundreds of isotopes, mainly the consideration is C-137 and strontium…they know that from Chernobyl research…but not to discount I-131 and 129 and plutonium…but it all adds up to maybe 10 to 15 bq/m3. If memory serves, chernrobyl fallout was 60 bq/m3 in the black sea. And now if you want to see what that means, the typical, ubiquitous thing is to compare to what is already there, since life began. And its 12,000 bq/m3. So about one thousand times more natural radiation than fukushima radiation. You can start to debate the bioaccumulation and whatever, but in fact it is very hard to debate this toxicity thing on either subconscious level…i.e. radiation=danger, or the actual toxicity numbers given. Fallout would have to be thousands of times worse than background…for an EQUAL amount of radiation. And so it is. You are up against the science community. All the studies are not in, all the science has not been completed, all the mechanisms are not known.

              • HoTaters HoTaters

                And likely the Fukushima fallout is orders of magnitude worse since it comes from spent fuel, not a bomb/weapon. So many more nasties in there….

                • HoTaters HoTaters

                  Pardon me, some of the fuel was not spent, or was partially spent.

                  • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                    HoTaters, good points all. Nevertheless, when looking at numbers, comparing becquerels to becquerels…then one has to defend in a debate. Fortunately we have the ECRR. How much worse are these nasties? roughly 1000x worse than mainstream science says. Enough to bring it up to background level of which there is 1000 times more. That is why we look at the toxicity of background radiation. Its probably much less toxic than assumed, on the whole, and an important part of the equation and debate

                    • Dazy Dazy

                      Please forgive my ignorant question. If the different types of radiation sources can be determined, why can't the background radiation be graphed by man-made vs natural. Is this obfuscation or can it not be separated?

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      Hi Dazy. Mainstream science has determined the radiation from background and fallout. The measurements are probably not in dispute. The toxicity for a given amount of radiation is in question. For example, the percentage of radioactive isotope K-40 in potassium is fixed and known and the amount of potassium is fixed and known in the body. This is the highest internal source of radiation and makes us about five times as radioactive as the ocean, from the same source, potassium. So if there is about 10 bq per cubic meter in the ocean from Fukushima fallout, there is 12,000 bq/m3 from potassium and the body has roughly 75,000 bq/m3 from potassium. No obfuscation. The scientists and also pro and anti nukers in general have a tendency to equate a certain amount of radioactivity to a certain danger level. This assumption does not hold for low level radiation. Its the unquestioned adherence of the science community to their derived toxicity levels that allows the nuclear industry to exist. The scientists believe what they are taught

                    • Dazy Dazy

                      So it is then a case of biased unquestioning science which is challenging to argue against, much like any other zealotry.

                      Toxicity is the argument? When nearly every polluting agency is self regulating and we have to suffer their supportive data? You do make things difficult to rebut (which I appreciate). I'll keep working on it.

                    • Dazy Dazy

                      It would be easy to use statistics to prove, well, any point but it's such a wonky math I really don't like to use it.

                    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                      Dazy, I think epidemiology is the best thing because biology, the ecosystem and radiation effects are too complicated to study in isolation.

                      What is the standard by which science puts radiation into perspective and uses to explain its toxic hazard? Background radiation. Isnt it fair that they should test the toxicity of background before making the comparison to fallout? In fact they have been studying it. Radon, cosmic radiation, and terrestrial gamma. Results are almost entirely ambiguous, and one study shows no effect when k-40 radiation is increased 100x, and little effect when increased 1000x. Note that would be a level a million times more radioactive than fallout in the ocean. Other studies show reduced health when background dose is eliminated as much as possible. So science says its all too ambiguous and they stick with extrapolated toxicity from Hiroshima bomb survivors. This puts cesium and potassium on a nearly equal footing. The reality is they may be infinitely different in biological effect at all relevant doses

        Normally it takes 5 years for solid cancers to begin appearing after exposure to radio-iodine but high radioactive fallout exposure to locals and any one caught in the plumes increases the risks. Spikes in thyroids problems and bones cancers already have taken place faster than expected. Studies should begin being reported soon after the five year Daiichi anniversary due to the publishing lag times.

          Did Obewan post a link to the cancer statistics? Thought so, but am not sure who it was. Someone (several people) posted very good info. on cancer statistics here in the past 2 years.

      • Ya Hotaters, because of the long half life of I129 (stick around basically forever in the thyroid, delivering continuous "insults") it doesn't kill quickly. A quick kill is the "benefit" of the I131 as the thyroid is destroyed and medical intervention occurs.

        In the I129 scenario…the damage, the "insult to biology" is ongoing, forever, basically.

        "they" hate I129 as much as Strontium 90, and so cover it up, down play it. Not just shame on them….Nuremberg Trials for them. 99% of people are forced to trust them, the Sheeple do not have economic time available to understand, and some don't have the ability to understand….so they must trust, those that lie.

    • Keep your levels of "good iodine" up. I use a pill format if not eating kelp in food.

      For the healthy people that add little salt to their diet, and consume a large amount of vegetables, you may very well BE IODINE DEFICIENT. Half of the US states have low levels of iodine in the soil, so the big veggie eaters don't get enough iodine.

                      Further, I call this misleading bunk, "Before the atomic era, life was just barely able to exist with background radiation. One 2012 study show 15% occurrence of leukemia from background radiation." Radiation was much higher in primordial times, and there cant be a 15% occurrence of leukemia from background. If you use the title of Doctor, then you should live up to it.

                      “While our ancestors have been around for about six million years, the modern form of humans only evolved about 200,000 years ago. Civilization as we know it is only about 6,000 years old, and industrialization started in the earnest only in the 1800s.Jan 19, 2015”

                      primordial times are billions of years ago, and human were not able to live then. Also potsssium is very, very low energy radiation, and some people consider it to act on people very nearly like a stable isotope.

                      And calculating the amount of water won't help you if you eat sea food with lethal radioactive isotopes.

                  The vast majority of all the scientists in the world agree on climate warming, but you are a denier.

                  Most people know that nuclear weapons are extremely lethal, and yet you favor nuclear weapons and nuclear weapon production.

                  Do you really want Scott Walker, governor of the state of Wisconsin for president? Well, the vast majority of Americans do not agree with your.

                  Some people root for all the wealthy people. My concern for the poor is the opposite of your politics.

                      stock once said that he wasn't against nuclear weapons. Why is Code answering for him? Has stock changed his mind? Why can't he just say he is no longer for nuclear weapons? What is so difficult about that?

                      Slandering me when I've done nothing wrong. It is you who uses the h. word all the time, not me.

                      I love you or-well. Please let stock explain himself. Attacking me does nothing positive for this website. Making false accusations when all I've talked about is someone's political position or position on nuclear weapons is not a criminal offense.

                      I've not said horrible things about anyone. Many people in the country including the most in the government are in favor of nuclear weapons. So just what was wrong with saying that. And you still haven't corrected me. Is stock for nuclear weapons or not?

          I did quote a link and a source, Yoichi Shimatsu in April, 2015.

          And no one can reach the coria to document what is happening. It is interacting with ocean water which is not only salt but extremely polluted, and all with the metal from the reactor containment.

          • Yo Anne bot, you are confusing your "attackers" I said nothing about you not having a link, yet that is your "counter non argument'

                  The attacks are a distraction because over the last 6 years, I have posted many articles on radiation and the nuclear industry.

                  And it was me that said that you can't get near the corium to know the present witches' brew.

                  There is no reason to keep attacking unless you are pro Nuke. If I remember correctly you do like nuclear weapons.

                      If you want to find a comment and post a link then I could say whether I posted that or not. Recently someone here stole my avatar and posted my moniker by leaving out the last parenthesis of my moniker.

                      I am sensitive about AnneBeck because she said I deserve any punishment Muslims want to give me. That means I should have my head chopped off because I am a Christian. I would be glad to supply all the verses in the Qur'an.

                    I'm against creating any more nuclear waste. I'm for saving the air, water and the land.

    129I….oh there be other rare ones with that junk too. Naaaaaa..

  • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

    the scientists use this information about the numbers of atoms of I-129 in a liter of ocean water to scoff at what they think is the ignorance and foolish fear of the public. Again, and every time, they compare this radioactivity to background level and say it is safe. Only by scientifically proving that their coefficients of toxicity are in error will such information form an anti nuclear argument. Otherwise, predictions of doom only fuel their ridicule. The main scientific community has been operating on the outdated ICRP LNT model which has been proven and also admitted to be in error.

  • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

    here I try to put the atoms per liter into perspective. Warning; I might have made an error, so check it yourselves!
    I come up with an equivalent of .0024 bq per cubic meter of ocean water, equal to the amount of radiation from K-40 in one gram of soil.
    If 3x 10-8 grams is lethal then I get 82 cubic meters is lethal dose. This strikes me as incorrect, but if so, imagine how many lethal doses in the ocean.

    The problem is the ICRP LNT dose model.
    ICRP does not consider the effect of low level radiation on non fatal cancer, infant mortality or morbidity, heart disease or general reduction in health, and underestimates toxicity by a gross amount.

    The European Committee on Radiation Risk puts I-131 about 5x worse than the ICRP model but nuke fallout generally 600 to 1000x worse. The ECRR considers the ICRP to over estimate background radiation toxicity.

    ECRR calculates about 50 times more cancer deaths than the ICRP model and infinitely higher infant mortality which is given as about 1/30 the cancer death rate

    the difference is shown in deaths from the nuclear test program. ICRP predicts a loss of 1,170,000 lives and ECRR estimates 61,600,000 lives

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      should have said If 3x 10-8 grams of I-129 is lethal then I calculate that in 82 cubic meters of ocean. No guarantee my conversion is accurate!

      Busby says something interesting about radioactive iodine; "the metabolic and cell repair status controls exercised by the
      thyroid gland are the reason why Iodine has been incorporated into living systems and is employed as a kind of radiation-repair control mechanism" (Busby and Schnug 2008). One could say that is a kind of hormesis function, even though elsewhere, perhaps generally speaking other than iodine, "The Committee provisionally concludes that hormesis may exist, but if
      it does exist its long-term effects are likely to be harmful"

  • The population near Fukushima was subject to massive amounts of different types of radioactive Iodine isotopes, not just Iodine-131, plus huge amounts of radioactive Cesium which can also cause Thyroid cancer. The reports below clearly reveal just how large the Iodine-131 fallout was, just after Fukushima.

    26.06.2013 – After two years the April 2011 radioactive Iodine I-131 deposition for part of eastern Japan has been released. The maps show contamination by radioactive iodine in the 400 square kilometer area around Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, and are based on the analysis of aerial surveys done by the US Department of Energy on April 2 and 3 in 2011.

    http://ex-skf.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/jaea-and-us-dept-of-energy-maps-of.html

    • Now look at this 2011 radioactive Iodine-129 detection report at Fukushima Medical University.

      Reported on the 14th June 2013:

      “1.19 million becquerels/kg of radioactive iodine detected on leafy vegetables near Fukushima Medical University in March 2011. Being aware of this high radioactive iodine detection, Fukushima Medical University distributed potassium iodide pills to the doctors and nurses. The report points out that potassium iodine pills were not distributed to local men, women, and children. This university is located just south of Fukushima City.”

      http://ex-skf.blogspot.com.au/2013/06/fukushima-medical-university.html

      • Most people are not aware there are lots of different types of radioactive Iodine fallout isotopes besides I-131, because the main stream media only focuses on I-131.

        The two years the April 2011 radioactive Iodine I-131 deposition report I posted above only focused on the huge releases of I-131, and did not include other radioactive Iodine isotope types that were released from the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe site, at the time!

        I would also like to point out that five years on, radioactive Iodine-131 is still being detected in local sewage sludge, which suggests there are still ongoing criticalities happening at the site.

        It would be logical to suggest that locations that had fallout detections of Iodine I-131 from Fukushima, eg. Japan, Southern California (In kelp), San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Europe etc., should include all the versions of radioactive Iodine fallout, to get the true total of radioactive Iodine fallout exposure.

        • Most people are not aware there are 36 different types of radioactive iodine and most of these are produced as a byproduct of a fission reaction, from either nuclear weapons testing, nuclear power plants or a nuclear accident.

          • theworldisalie theworldisalie

            Agreed, many isotopes but people only fixate on the singular ones they hear about being detected and then that's where it ends.

            They don't understand that they are all there at the same time in various ratios with various life spans, various energy emitting spectrums, various toxicity levels and various different modes of transportation in the environment and into life forms.

            It's a real life and real time nightmare that nobody understands in the general population.

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      the average isotopic ratio was estimated to be 129I/131I = 31.6
      as of March 15, 2011. So the next thing is to find the estimate of I131 release…and multiply by 31. I think I-131 was roughly 10x the cesium release. Japan is the new Belarus. So is the pacific ocean. Sadly the stupified scientists can only contemplate climate change theory

      • Ya Code, the $cientists want their pension, so they find what their bosses tell them to find. Shameful.

        Also what about the levels of noble gasses detected that dwarf Chernobyl by a large margin as well?

        I am getting really annoyed with people and the media who constantly spout that Chernobyl was worse or that they are on par or even in the same league.

        I call complete B.S. on that, Fukushima was orders worse, especially due to the volume of fuel involved and the duration. We know tepco has repeatedly lied and came out later saying it was much worse than originally states, several times now.

        We know that the fuel composition was much more dirty and rich in plutonium. We know that the instruments were all obliterated so it was all a guessing game at the plant.

    If I seperate the backround I-129 of atmospheric testing, from Fukushima's I-129, on paper, does that make Fukushima's I-129, less of an accumulating dose?

      Issue Date: 2016

      Release after 20-Sep-2017

      A seawater ¹²⁹I monitoring program was instituted with seawater samples from Scripps Pier, La Jolla, California, USA a few months after the Great East Japan Earthquake, which involved the accidental release of substantial amounts of ¹²⁹I from the Fukushima Daichi nuclear power plant. These data were used to construct a 4-year record of surface water ¹²⁹I with monthly resolution. ¹²⁹I in Hanford site vicinity is also surveyed to understand the background value of the California Current System. It is clear that the California Current System is influenced by the Hanford site which can explain the higher ¹²⁹I/¹²⁷I background values observed along the west coast of the U.S. compared to other surface sites in the Pacific Ocean. Our result shows that the highly contaminated seawater from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident has not yet seen at the Scripps Pier, La Jolla, California, USA four years of ocean transport.

    What is iodine-129 and where does it come from?

    Iodine-129 is the longest lived isotope of iodine with a half-life of 15.7 million years. It is radioactive and occurs everywhere throughout the environment. It is produced in three ways. The first two are natural and the third is by the nuclear industry.

    The natural production of 129I occurs in the atmosphere and in soil/rocks. The atmospheric production happens when a cosmic ray proton hits a xenon-129 nucleus and removes a neutron, replacing it and creating an iodine-129 nucleus. The production in soil and rocks happens when a uranium-238 nucleus spontaneously fissions and one of the halves it releases has a mass of 129 ala, iodine-129.

    The anthropogenic production occurs because when uranium fissions in a nuclear reactor sometimes one of the parts is 129I. This anthropogenic production is by far the largest source in the environment as substantial amounts have been released by nuclear fuel reprocessing. This 129I that has been released can trace a host of environmental processes and inform us about what happens to 129I or the much more dangerous, 131I. The current levels of 129I are much too low to pose a health threat to humans or the environment, but do allow 129I to be used as an environmental tracer.

    "Only by scientifically proving that their coefficients of toxicity are in error will such information form an anti-nuclear argument."

    "The main scientific community has been operating on the outdated ICPR LNT model which has been proven and also admitted to be in error."

    So we have no argument against an argument that has been proven and also admitted to be in error.

    Or is it that if we don't prove their coefficients of toxicity are in error then we should take the next flight to tokyo and swim in fuku bay?

    Also, because they always blame climate change, instead of radiation, for all the unusual mortality in the pacific, does that mean that what is referred to as "'climate change' is a hoax" as our strawberry blond president put it?

    Did Albert Einstein say that boiling water with nuclear fisson was crazy only because there are more efficient ways to do it? What did he know that we don't?

      "…* * * UPDATE FROM GWYN GALLOWAY TO JOHN SHOEMAKER, VIA EMAIL, AT 1830 EST ON 1/13/17 * * *

      "On January 12, 2017, at approximately 1142 MST, a TAM International van carrying barrels of KOH alternate feed materials from Honeywell International arrived at the White Mesa Mill Scale house. According to Honeywell the materials are basically uranium ore concentrates. The White Mesa employees began unloading the van, but as they began offloading some of the last barrels, they noticed that some of the barrels were leaking. From what they could tell, three barrels were potentially leaking . The barrels were not rusted through, but were 'soft' and allowed liquid contained in the solid materials to leak from the barrel. The material leaked from the barrel onto a plastic sheet; however, the plastic sheet had an opening (rip, tear) through which the material was able to pass. The RSO [Radiation Safety Officer] was notified of the event at about 1300 MST.

      "’When the RSO reached the van, the employees had completed emptying the van and had 'cleaned' the van. The RSO indicated he was able to see visible evidence that the material had been able to leak from the van, but the area had been cleaned and no valid measurements or samples of the materials leaked from the van were able to be taken.

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar

        Pictures were taken and from the pictures provided to the Division [Utah Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control], it appears that only a small quantity of liquid material was leaking from the barrels. Because the contents of the barrels are primarily solid and only contain small amounts of liquid and the liquid contents in the barrels were leaking through the bottom of the barrel, through a plastic sheet, across the van floor and out of the van along a girder and the siding, it is likely that only small quantities of materials were leaking from the van. The weather across the nation has been fairly stormy this past week and has included both rain and snow. Because of the rain and snow that has been occurring while the vehicle was traveling to the Mill site, it is likely that any small amounts of materials that leaked from the van were subsequently washed away and diluted. The Mill analyzes each alternate feed stream annually to verify the isotopic content of the alternate feed. At the last verification, the Honeywell KOH material contained, approximately 633,000 mg/kg uranium (about 61% uranium), 39 pCi/g Pb-210, 44.6 pCi/g Ra-226, 358 pCi/g Th-230, and 27 pCi/g Th-232.’

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      strictly speaking, an increase of radioactivity of two orders of magnitude at La Jolla would mean 1,200,000 bq/m3. Not consistent with the rest of the article. They say totals are around 10 bq/m3. A breakdown in communications! Maybe they meant ratios, as stated earlier

      • HillbillyHoundDog HillbillyHoundDog

        Perhaps they are being isotope specific? Their calculation is based on added radiation from a single isotope?

        ENE: "Lower level before arrival: 6 million atoms of 129I per L
        Peak level during arrival: 1.7 billion atoms of 129I per L"

      • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

        thanks Hillbilly, you caused me ta actually read more of the paper! I had picked up on this sentence;

        "For all measured values of the water samples, the contamination with 137Cs, including those collected after the Fukushima disaster, did not exceed 10 Bq m3"

        But just prior to that they were saying I-129 was about 100x pre fukushima (remaining from bomb test era?) AND From the ratio of measured yr 2011 I-129 at Fukushima to La Jolla yr 2013 they got the estimates of specific radio-activities for 137Cs and 3H during the impact. The results are 10,600 Bq /M3 for 137Cs and 450 Bq/M for 3H.

        They also talk about radioactivity in fish of 20 bq/kg and go on to say this is 10 times the level of C-137 in the ocean before Fukushima. Then the Hillbilly quote…'measurements [of I-129] definitely have shown an increase of the radioactivity more than two orders of magnitude over the natural level of the Pacific Ocean before the accident' and I guess they mean radiation from I-129 is 100 times more than what was left over from the bomb test and Chernobyl?

            "The key that leads to an explosion in the case of alkali metals is the coulomb explosion: as soon as the heat from the early reaction melts the metal, the charge imbalance at the metal/water interface drives the formation of microscopic metal spikes which enormously increase the surface available to the reaction. it reacts extremely rapidly with water to generate cesium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. And releases a large amount of energy. Due to rapid release of hydrogen and heat energy, that hydrogen reacts with atmospheric oxygen explosively."

    Igor: Child Of Chernobyl (Medical Documentary) – Real Stories

    Published on Jan 3, 2017

    Igor Pavlovets is an eight-year-old boy who was one of the first children conceived after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. His tiny body bears the cruel legacy of radiation. He’s the size of a three-year-old, his legs have no main bone, his feet are turned out in permanent fishtail and he has just one arm. The programme follows the fight to keep him in England and his adaptation to his new life, a new school and coming to terms with his artificial limbs.

    "a million deformed children"

    "The fate of the Chernobyl children is too awful to contemplate; If they survive premature birth, they must, by law, be sent to mental asylums at the age of four, whether they are mentally handicapped, or not."

        Belarus/Chernobyl… is so horrible! Japan/Pacific ocean is the new Belarus as all governments and scientists cover it up.

        A little beside the point but it makes me yearn for a leaderless society when they are inevitably so despicable. Do we not think ourselves superior to mice, alligators and mules, all who existed without overlords? To see how leaders respond to grievous catastrophe, see a short video on minamata disease, mercury poisoning in Japan. Denial and cover up not fully explored here

    Leaky barrels in Utah and what happened in Thane? What's in your backyard?

    Radiation spikes measured in jets flying through radioactive clouds in the atmosphere. It's in the latest geoengineering Watch article.

    Someone told me that a guy hiking barefoot around the world to protest pollution was killed by an SUV.

    The residents of the San Diego/La Jolla areas must be very unhappy to have this fact presented. Wonder how the health of the people is in all of the coastal counties.

      I dont understand why the large spike in measured I-129 didnt remain. Where did it go? It should still be in the kelp. Probably part of the reason for the spike is that runnoff from land increased the shore levels which subsequently disbursed out to sea.

      The article uses Povinec data. All that I-129 comes from just 1.2 kg!

      'The amount of 129I directly discharged from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant to the sea was estimated to be 2.35 GBq, and about 1.09 GBq of 129I released to the atmosphere from the accident was deposited in the sea offshore Fukushima. A total release of 8.06 GBq (or 1.2 kg) of 129I from the Fukushima accident was estimated. '

    http://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Companies/Fuel-removal-at-Fukushima-delayed-again

    The work is now set to begin in fiscal 2018 at the earliest.

    But in view of still high levels of radioactivity around the facilities, the schedule was revised to fiscal 2017.

    The timeline has been changed again because it is taking longer than expected to decontaminate buildings and clean up debris.

    The No. 3 reactor houses 566 of the 1,500-plus rods of spent and unspent nuclear fuel residing in reactors 1, 2 and 3. Fuel removal from the Nos. 1 and 2 reactors is to begin in fiscal 2020 but no concrete steps have been taken.

    (Nikkei)

    In other FINANCIAL headline news "Fukushima contamination is only a fraction of what they thought it was."

    If you are a playground for children in Fukushima City, you will see Chansuk Indoor Park. Children and adults will move the body happily at indoor facilities that can play without concern for radioactivity.

    Here is my story. grateful

    My wife was diagnosed with a cancer, ( before i learnt of Rick Simpsons oil / RSO ) the hospital said to do chemotherapy and radiotherapy.. she did.. and went through a lot.. but no cure, after a while the doctors said the cancer was spreading and we could look for alternatives.. i searched the internet and found out about the oil.. asked alot of questions.. watched the videos etc.. we made the oil our selves but it couldn't just work out we were doing more harm than good and the cancer was still there spreading, i searched more on the internet i found a testimony on how a lady got the oil via an email, ricksimpsoncannabisoil96@gmail.com immediately copied the email: i wrote to this very email ricksimpsoncannabisoil96@gmail.com and in an hour later i got a reply back asking me some few questions, and enlightened me on how to get the oil in the next 48hours, i placed my order and in the next 48hours the medication oil got to us. immediately my wife started using the oil, it been two months now, since my wife has been using the medication oil and the cancerous problems are gone this very fact was clarified by the doctor.

    i put up this piece of testimony for the sake of those once who need this oil to please don't die in silence their is a cure for your cancer today email: ricksimpsoncannabisoil96@gmail.com and get the oil.

    Experts: US hit with sudden spikes of rare radioactive material from Fukushima — Has 15.7 Million year half life — “Orders of magnitude” rise in levels on West Coast — Much higher amounts than were detected near Fukushima plant just after 3/11
    By ENENews, on January 23rd, 2017"

    "rare radioactive material from Fukushima"

    Rare? WTF? I'd say radioactive material is the most common and ubiquitous material in Fukushima.
