Interview with Olli Heinonen, former IAEA deputy director general, former Finland Reactor Laboratory senior officer and senior fellow at Harvard University (emphasis added): “[We] have a potential catastrophe on our hands… I think that when this thing is over — this is certainly a national catastrophe for Japan — but actually this a catastrophe for every citizen of the world… Russians, Americans, they are also subject radiation. The radiation doesn’t recognize borders… It looks to be a very dire situation.”

United Nations (pdf), 2014: Estimated doses in the first year following the [Fukushima] accident

> Italy — External exposure, inhalation and ingestion of 131I, 134Cs, 137Cs

  • 1-year-old: 180 microsieverts/year
  • Adult: 35 microsieverts/year
  • Very conservative assumptions were applied as the highest concentration values measured for each radionuclide in rainwater were used to calculate the dose from ingested water.

> Serbia — Effective doses from 131I concentrations in food, milk, air and rainwater

  • Adult estimated effective dose: 7.2 microsieverts/month
  • [Does NOT include: Inhaled 134Cs/137Cs; Ingested 134Cs/137Cs; External doses]

Nuclear Physics Workshop (pdf), Apr. 12, 2014: Data discussed in the present work includes the observations of Fukushima related radionuclides in… Italy… [transported] from Japan, across the Pacific and to Central Europe… Estimated committed doses for population related to the contributions of Fukushima fallout due to different pathways were at least one order of magnitude [i.e. around ten times] less of the limit of 1 [millisievert a year] even if the calculations are made using high conservative assumptions… caesium and iodine were found above their detection limits in all environmental samples, but well below levels of concern.

Dr. Steve Wing, Univ. of North Carolina epidemiologist: “What we know about radiation is any amount increases risk of cancer… [At Fukushima] there’s a spectrum of types of radiation being emitted… Risks to populations exposed will play out over the rest of their lives. Even after the radiation is gone, genetic damage could lead to cancer many years later.”

    THE ONLY FACT THAT MATTERS
    The destroyed reactors of Fukushima have
    been spewing deadly poisons by sea and air
    for 3.5 years.
    Failure of US government to warn.
    No effective or credible efforts to control or
    contain ongoing massive releases of poison.
    √ fact checked

    • StarMouse StarMouse

      Very much agree with you there . Sad.

    • hbjon hbjon

      Alert! The FD Complex is getting nailed by Typhoon Phanfone. Expect elevated releases.

      Not known if storm surge topped seawall.

      Not known if The Complex and SFP's are standing.

      Prepare to shelter in place if you are downwind.

      Tank farm may have suffered damage.

      Remember that The Complex is too radioactive for workers to do anything to prepare for storm.

      9 to 19 foot seas are expected, and that's on top of the storm surge.

                Thank you Gabe, I needed that for all those people who think I am nuts when I talk about this… And – I also realize that I bought the wrong ticket for the wrong planet. I wanted to incarnate on a paradise garden planet, so I was told, that is what the advertisement said. Now I find myself being delivered to a nut house where all the psychopaths of the universe play out their death oriented power and control games – HELP !

                • Gabe Gabe

                  Well, I keep saying that if the US military persons, especially the special fives from each branch, really had the courage of the Japanese warrior of the past, these globalist psychopaths would all be gone from the face of this planet in under a year.
                  As well, there are a tremendous number of what I call " the globalist NWO white papers", papers just like the one I posted, which lay out their plans in exquisite detail.
                  I have never been a "nut case" and am very steeped in the sciences related to the physical body. That being said, I was espousing holistic health and a Mediterranean diet, music as healing energy, meditation for healing etc a full 30 years before my "mainstream" peers began to. I was first mocked, especially my the people I worked with that were not medical people but instead psychology people. I found it found to challenge their mockery and explain the physiology behind my approach. Our physicians quickly saw the results of my approach and directed the clients to me and stated they would try allopathy medicine if my approach was not effective. So, while I do not follow the pied piper, I do study and have always been more than willing to look at alternative systems and approaches.
                  But, I will say that when I first began to find the "white papers" information it was extremely unsettling. I actually felt nauseated and somewhat panicky. That was followed by feeling stupid and embarrassed for even considering the information. Yet, here I am.

                    Pardon the spell check….
                    I found it fun to challenge their mockery………

                    They would try allopathic …………

                    In closing I will say this……….people who are closed to learning about the tools of the globalist NWO psychopaths are setting themselves up………and their family also. You will not have a snowball's chance in hell if you do not understand these vermin.
                    I think, though, that there are many weird nut cases screaming about the NWO globalists, some of whom are paid shills, like FACT checker. Their job is to try to create the illusion of lunacy of the well read and intelligent. Their are some very sophisticated shills out there…….very, very good at what they do……and they are somewhat successful. There are also the histrionic blathering goofballs that give any legitimate for up a bad name and allow the attacks upon the group to appear legitimate.
                    I try to gave people start their journey reading tragedy and peace………a good book by a scholar. From that base people can progress to learn more quickly and keep from being scammed by the shills and trolls.
                    A brilliant man I respect is Stan Deyo………he is also religious and that might deter some, but I could care less if he is. It certainly does not negate his intellect. He is a gentle soul.
                    BTW…glad to meet you Homolumina…….

          Everytime Fuku farts, we get to smell it, via the rather unpredictable vagaries in altitude and course of the jetstream.
          At the end of July, I read a huge spike here in eastern Canada,
          about 6 days after a reported release at Fuku. That's a reasonable estimate for the jetstream transit time. Just a week ago, September 28, I read another big spike, well up into the 300-400 CPM zone. And of course, the damned stuff keeps circulating round and round the planet, gifting its unholy particles wherever there's a dip downwards in the jetstream current, or perhaps where the jetstream is polluted sufficently by geoengineering particles, which glom onto the rad particles,and the whole mess falls out more readily. "The gift that keeps on giving" really takes on new meaning!

        • We Not They Finally

          Some time early on, I had read that 100 CPM ongoing for a year, that alone, increases the risk of cancer. (And if it's the EPA readings, people oftentimes read just beta, not alpha.)

          300 CPM may or may not be ongoing. It's obviously dangerous to stick around those kinds of readings for a long stretch. Right now, it may just be "spikes," but who can predict that? When we lived in New Mexico, it was more like "what's for lunch?"

          Try to move from the West Coast if you can, but obviously that's not possible for many.

          Those stacks on the site are some seriously dangerous bits of matter. Anyone want to tell me the reason they just don't talk about them? One day they are going to fall and have their inventory of Nuke dust roused into the atmosphere. I am not too sure if they tried to get a reading from inside of the pipes but they told us about a 10 sievert reading from the outside of them. The readings from inside ARE higher… just how high and how dangerous can be surmised by the amount of coverage they get. I heard tons about cracks in supports and little else on them. Also could they be still using these stacks to make releases now?

      Do not expect the US government to do anything (except lies and stonewall). They are corrupt and incompetent to the core and we do not have a president, just a little dictator that is a NWO puppet.

      The Radiation will get worse and worse and it up to each individual to take on the responsibility as best they can because it is not over and never will be for the several generation at least.

    • SadieDog

      "Tokyo Electric Power Co. has warned its stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant could be hit by tsunami as high as 26.3 meters.

      The deluge would likely cause seawater to mingle with the radiation-tainted water accumulating in the basements of the reactor buildings at the six-unit plant, allowing 100 trillion becquerels of cesium to escape, according to an estimate that Tepco revealed Friday at a meeting of the Nuclear Regulation Authority.

      Tepco said a tsunami of that size occurs once every 10,000 to 100,000 years."

    Correct, I just posted this same thought in the last report.

    You CAN however see the sky damage, and learn to recognize what you are seeing; if you employ the right simple equipment. Easy understanding of how elements are created, how they interact with light, and see actual image examples and graphs to identify sky damage yourself in the sites linked below.

        • PlowboyGrownUp

          Yep! I've been trying to catch Onto to get him to view that video.

          • Great video Plowboy. It specifies:

            Green is produced by radiation bombardment of oxygen in upper atmosphere

            Blue produced by radiation bombardment of nitrogen in lower atmosphere

            • Angela_R

              Yes majia, the question I now ask, is "how much of our nitrogen and oxygen is radioactive?"

              The aurora's have been showing lots of green, some iridescent.
              I postulate: If we are protected by the magnetosphere this may be a spectra light diffuser from something happening on the outer edge of our magnetosphere. These can still be deflected, except where they are able to enter via a breach in the magnetosphere.

              An unusual iridescent blue . In the sky, in the crabs and various kinds of shellfish…made me think of nitrogen, but without knowing that that bomb, as shown by the video linked to by PlowBoy, had pierced the magnetosphere, it was hard to understand why the nitrogen and oxygen might be radioactive.

              • PlowboyGrownUp

                And I read somewhere (no link right now) that the magnetosphere is getting weaker. Caused by these atomic polluting activities? It's highly suspicious.

                • Angela_R

                  Links have been supplied a number of times re breaches in the magnetosphere and also on the weakening of the magnetic field. An online search will turn up a number of links on both.

                  However, although I have suspected and suggested for some time that the hole/holes in the ozone layers were caused by man's nuclear activities, it is only in recent times that I have wondered re the damage to the magnetosphere having been caused by man's nuclear foray.
                  That is why I found your link so riveting.

                  They may be attempting to use geoengineering to block the cosmic ionizing radiation that is entering. Unfortunately the chemicals purported to be used in the process have their own deleterious effects; these may also contribute to meteorological changes.
                  'Lesser of two evils' can be a determining factor in the decision making process of some people.

                  I also am inclined to wonder whether the piercing of the magnetosphere was done deliberately in 1962, in an attempt to allow the then radioactivity in our atmosphere, to escape into outer space. Perhaps it was only after, that they realized that it would allow in cosmic ionizing radiation.

                  However, the weakening of the magnetic field may not have been caused by man.

                • Caused by pole shift. North pole is moving around rapidly, review Nukepro for details.

                  Last flip was 40,000 years ago, it coincides with lots of human cave art, i.e. lots of radiation and lots of mutation caused soem humaniods to get an advantage, be able to kill enough critters to have time for art.

                  PS this is my own work and I believe first person to come up with the theory.

                  Dont expect that again. 99% of mutations suck.

                • We Not They Finally

                  The magnetosphere weakening (rapidly) was apparently already well in play prior to Fukushima. Ripping apart the ozone layer, which BOTH radiation and geoengineering apparently does, just makes everything worse.

                  • We Not They Finally

                    "Geoengineeering" meaning both chemtrails (lethal widespread aerosol spraying) and HAARP. Chemtrails also apparently makes the atmosphere more transmissible for HAARP, one of which (nefarious) uses is weather manipulation, but it is also an ionospheric HEATER.

                    Control freaks with billions of dollars of black budget money do bad things.

                    Someone who knows the science can lay out the relationship between the magnetosphere and the ionosphere and global warming. It's just that everywhere one turns, some new act is hubris seems to be making things worse.

                    • Angela_R

                      WeNotTheyFinally I agree with your remark "Someone who knows the science can lay out the relationship between the magnetosphere and the ionosphere and global warming."
                      And it is known that a breach/opening has occurred in the magnetosphere, through which solar winds can flow,allowing ionizing radiation to enter.
                      However, I do not view the breach in the magnetosphere as the same as weakening of the magnetic fields.

                      "It's just that everywhere one turns, some new act is hubris seems to be making things worse." they certainly appear to be adding other problems.

                      Unsure whether you managed to watch the video in the link supplied above by Plowboy, http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2010/07/01/128170775/a-very-scary-light-show-exploding-h-bombs-in-space

                      They did that back in 1962, but this information has only been divulged in the past couple of years.

        “The robots ALL died, because the radiation is 1,000 times WORSE than it was at Chernobyl. The fire spray trucks did not work, and the radioactive water that did not go into an open spent fuel tank, ran off into the ocean, creating an even worse radioactive mess in the Pacific Ocean.

        “The real truth is that Fukushima will be highly radioactive for a million years, and it must be guarded and monitored for this amount of time.

              The Human Plutonium Injection Experiments
              “…An alpha-emitter safe dose. In a draft report authored by Bassett and Langham
              in 1947 or 1948, they stated that an accepted safe dose to irradiated tissue for an alpha emitter was 0.01 rep per day (where 1 rep, a “roentgen equivalent physical,” corresponds to the absorption of 93 ergs per gram of tissue).
              They felt that “a dose of this [size] appears to carry little likelihood of injury to cells.” Using the activity of plutonium-239 and the energy of its alpha particles, they calculated that this dose corresponds to 32.6 micrograms of plutonium if the plutonium is distributed uniformly throughout the body and 5.2 micrograms if the plutonium is concentrated in the skelton with a uniform distribution in bone. “Unfortunately,” they wrote, “radioautographs reveal a far from uniform distribution of plutonium in bone.” Furthermore, “early localization
              of a large fraction of the dose in the liver . . . is a distinct possibility.”
              They estimated that, in the regions where the plutonium concentrated, a 5-microgram body burden could result in a dose to tissue that was ten times higher than the accepted safe dose of 0.01 rep per day. Thus, they were aware
              of the fact that a 5-microgram dose most likely exceeded accepted standards,
              depending on the assumptions regarding distribution in the body….” (p. 205)

              “…By integrating the expression for total excretion of plutonium, it was determined that only about 8.7 per cent of a
              single plutonium dose is excreted in the urine and feces over a five-year period and 12.7 per cent in 20 years. This
              very slow rate of elimination led the authors to conclude that it would take about 118 years for the body to eliminate
              half of the plutonium (the biological half-life). Futhermore, there was “no practical significance . . . in permitting the return to work of an individual who has reached the maximum permissible body burden.”’In other words, ‘once a worker is retired from work with plutonium . . . it must be assumed that he is retired . . . for the balance of
              his lifetime.’…” (p. 212)

              “…The body burden. Equally important, of course, was checking the reliability of estimating a plutonium body burden from urinary excretion data when the exposure had been primarily through inhalation. Using a computer program developed by James N. P. Lawrence of the Los Alamos Health Physics Group (see “A Computer Analysis of Plutonium Excretion”), a body burden was calculated for Kelley of 19 nanocuries (equivalent to 0.30 micrograms of plutonium-239). This value was extremely close to the autopsy estimate of 18 nanocuries (or 16 nanocuries if the 10 per cent in the lungs was subtracted). In the discussion, Foreman, Langham, and Moss concluded that ‘the . . .agreement between body burden from tissue analyses and estimated burden from urine assays is so very satisfactory that it is undoubtedly fortuitous.’ Nevertheless, the agreement was a very strong indication that the execretion modeling approach was, indeed, closeto the mark.…” (p. 216)

      The bar for the NRC is "adequate protection". Any change to any radiation limit will still result in "adequate protection". NRC does say that ICRP 103 (2007) goes beyond adequate protection and may impact the medical and industrial (isotope producers) sectors adversely. Interesting that the new DC and ALI wont change.

    A surge in deaths among harbors seals in the waters of western Sweden has mystified scientists who have thus far been unable to identify a single cause. Officials in neighboring Denmark are also reporting an increase in seal deaths. (see next post for remainder of message)

  • Ana Ana

    Between 17,000 and 20,000 seals were killed by the virus in 1988, and again in 2002. PDV has thus far been ruled out as a cause of this year's deaths. "So far the animals that have been tested have not been shown to have PDV," said Charlotte Moraeus of the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm. "This is not as worrying as what happened in 1988. But we do need to do more tests to see if the deaths are connected to something bigger that we don't yet understand." One problem so far this year has been that the samples that have been tested are from seals that have been dead for some time. "We would like to have fresher samples, as this will make it easier for us to determine what was wrong with the animals before they died," she said.

  • We Not They Finally

    "Even after the radiation is gone, genetic damage could lead to cancer many years later.”

    It will never be gone. It's escalating and cumulative. The man saying this probably knows it, but it's not a scenario that people can accept at this point, so he says this instead.

    • Gabe Gabe

      The radiation ill never be gone. Humanity will be gone first.

    • NoFixedID

      The radiation will be as good as gone eventually because it decays exponentially over time. After ten half-lives a gram of radionuclide will have decayed to a thousandth of that amount; after 20 half-lives, to a millionth. For example, 99.9999% of Iodine-131 (half-life 8 days) will have decayed after 160 days. After 1600 days a kilogram of I-131 will have decayed to the point where it is extremely unlikely that even a single atom will remain.

      The fact that radionuclides decay has been used to argue that Cs-137 contamination (for example) will effectively disappear, or at least be dwarfed by background radiation, after ten half-lives – roughly 300 years. However there are several provisos to this argument, including:

      1: Even very low levels of radiation still pose a risk to health.
      2: Local concentrations of contamination may be so high that they may still be hazardous even after 20 half-lives.
      3: The half-lives of some radionuclides are extremely long – a staggering 4.5 billion years in the case of Uranium-238 (which means the universe will probably disappear before the radiation does)…[more]

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

        The radiation levels will increase the next 250,000 years. And we don't know what will happen with all the artificial isotopes. And because new radiation is being created all over the earth every day, the radiation and nuclear waste will keep increasing exponentially.

        Uranium was meant to be left in the ground. Even then, it was lethal as the aborigines knew in Australia even before it was ever mined.

        The nuclear waste is much more toxic.

    • NoFixedID

      In the case of Fukushima we can add 4: The environmental radiation is probably being replaced by new emissions and spills faster than it can decay, and this could be the case for centuries. Oh yes and 5: The 'radiation will disappear in time' argument is not much consolation if your child contracts incurable cancer from ingesting a hot particle.

      But I think you have missed the point of Dr Wing's statement. Far from downplaying the risks of radiation, he is pointing out that the risks persist even long after radionuclides (even rapidly decaying radionuclides) have disappeared. In the case of I-131 for example, this means that any genetic damage done while the iodine was decaying could cause health problems, cancers and reproductive damage to organisms for generations into the indefinite future – and that applies of course not only to humans but to all living organisms, and not only to I-131 but to all radionuclides. This has potentially enormous implications for human wellbeing and the wellbeing of the planet.

    The new fissures have been found in two of the 3,000 graphite fuel bricksand according to specialists, these cracks are more serious than previously thought. The reactor would have to close if the new problem gets above a certain threshold. Although Hunterston-B is due to close in 2016, EDF wants to keep it running until 2023 and even beyond.

    There is no immediate safety impact, but the new cracks are a “marker.” They could mark the beginning of the end for Hunterston-B and the older Advanced Gas Cooled Reactors (AGRs), which generate around 15 % of UK electricity.

    … in Germany, for example, where the anti-nuclear movement has been strong since the 1970s, has undertaken to shut down all Germany’s nuclear reactors by 2022, and eight of the 17 existing ones were permanently closed after the Fukushima incident.
    This should ring alarm bells on the part of the South African public. Germany is known globally for its technological expertise, and if the Germans are sufficiently concerned about the risks accompanying nuclear energy, South Africa should not rush headlong into … the construction of trillions of rands’ worth of nuclear reactors.

    Add to this that, if the Japanese, who “ … bow before the temple of precision, fetishizing detail and safety” (Beech 2014, p. 17), were caught off-guard by an event that should have been foreseen, what chance does South Africa, not generally regarded as being among the most efficient nations in the world (except when it comes to collecting taxes), have to succeed in anticipating ALL eventualities that might lead to a nuclear meltdown at a reactor?

    … Considering Eskom’s track-record in South Africa, what are the chances that a similar, fatal interruption in electricity supply might set in motion a sequence of events resulting in a nuclear meltdown and subsequent, disastrous consequences for the communities nearest the reactor, let alone the water supply and the …

      … topsoil, both of which would be seriously affected for a very long time afterwards?

      … Before taking the step to construct nuclear reactors on a relatively large scale in SA the ANC government should do the responsible thing by taking note of the Japanese experience and test the attitude of the public at large to nuclear energy.

    • Gabe Gabe

      I would like to say that recently I read quite a detailed paper regarding the placement of the nuclear reactors in Japan, so close to the coast. Their placement was strategically done. It had nothing to do with the brilliant people being unable to foresee. They were FORCED to place them at the coast for just the type of scenario we saw on 3/11.
      I KNOW that sounds incredulous and nuts and whacked out……trust me , I do!
      But, also consider the apparent lack of insight in placing all the US nuclear reactors, on the fault lines in the middle and east in the US. Again…….strategically placed there.

      To fully understand the evil behind these placements you must understand that at the end of WW2, thousands of the most brilliant German scientists were smuggled into the US and other nations, despite their known involvement with and commitment to Hitler's killing machine. Even the evil Mengela was spirited out…..to Canada,I believe, where he continued to murder indigenous children in special schools.

      The mentality behind all of these seemingly " unforeseen" events was one of intentional forward looking destruction of the masses. This is actually quite well known by those who have read the papers of the globalists.

      Now, consider that energy weapons are KNOWN to trigger earthquakes, volcanoes, and all manner of destruction………….those energy weapons existed in Germany by the end of WW2. The scientists were shuttled into the black gov. Programs that have…

    Japan’s Tragic Wake-Up Call
    2014/10/06Bill TottenLeave a commentGo to comments
    by William Pesek

    BloombergView (October 03 2014)

    With the discovery of a 47th body on the slopes of Mount Ontake {1} yesterday, the volcano’s eruption is now Japan’s deadliest in 88 years. It’s impossible not to worry about an even bigger volcanic threat that lies just ninety miles from Tokyo: Mount Fuji. All this has both seismologists and anti-nuclear activists asking anew whether the most earthquake-prone nation in the developed world should be restarting its 48 nuclear reactors, which have been offline since a record earthquake in March 2011 precipitated the Fukushima crisis {2}.

    I’m in the “no” camp, and not just because the public disapproves of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s coddling of the shadowy nuclear industry. My argument – one I’ve made before – is as much about Japan’s economic future as the personal safety of the 126 million Japanese I live amongst.

    The tragic explosion at Mount Ontake showed the dark side of Japan’s geographic position, located along the so-called Ring of Fire. But it’s also a timely reminder that the country is more blessed than cursed when it comes to natural resources. As China and India choke on fossil fuels, Japan possesses an enviable mix of water, wind and, most importantly, geothermal resources to fulfill its energy needs. …

  • rogerthat

    … Just ask Abe’s one-time mentor Junichiro Koizumi, who this week stepped up his campaign to end Japan’s addiction to nuclear power. “Even experts say they never expected Mount Ontake to erupt”, the former prime minister told reporters {3} on September 29. “Earthquakes, tsunamis and eruptions occur all over Japan, so it must not have nuclear power plants”.

    Mount Ontake obliterated the nuclear lobby’s argument that seismic sensors and global positioning technology can predict eruptions that may threaten reactors. This one came out of nowhere – like a huge bolt of lightning, survivors say. Even if we knew that one of Japan’s other 100-plus active volcanoes was about to blow, Tokyo Electric Power or Kyushu Electric Power can’t move reactors or toss huge protective domes over them. All Japanese authorities could do is evacuate surrounding areas to lop a zero or two off death-toll figures.

    It’s time Japan started heeding the advice of environmentalists like David Suzuki {4} to go geothermal…

    … Equally, consider the following:
    “In spite of the fact that for the last 50 years man-made radiation has been repeatedly set loose on earth via bomb testing and nuclear spills, the majority of our health care providers do not routinely check a person for exposure amounts, or for effects suffered from past exposures. And yet radiation is cumulative and its effects devastating, both short and long-term.

    Living Near a Nuclear Waste Dump
    by Roger Johnson, PhD • October 6, 2014 • 0 Comments
    Surprise, surprise, the government is not going to remove the nuclear waste after all. The big promises made years ago to seal the deal for allowing San Onofre to be built was the guarantee that the highly-radioactive nuclear waste would be removed when the plant closed. Now they have reneged on their promise. Instead of removing the waste, the new plan is to store the toxic waste right here indefinitely.

    Voila…. Our area is now a Nuclear Waste Dump.

    Funny thing is, few people even know they live near a Nuclear Waste Dump. Some even think that they are safe because the reactors are no longer operating. Living near 2,000 tons of uranium and plutonium is safe??? As the decades pass, the risks multiply. In addition to accidents and human error, there is always the danger of a big earthquake or tsunami. That is what caused the disaster in Fukushima. And now Edison is limiting its choice of casks to cheaper versions which have no internal monitoring, are vulnerable to leaks and cracks, and cannot be repaired when they do leak. Does anyone seriously believe that none of these things could happen before the government is supposed to remove the waste in 2049? But the government has no plan to remove it. Its only plan is to keep it here. If the government doesn’t remove the waste by 2049, the “plan” calls for …

    Hello folks, first posting here but have been following this sight for over three years – I have learned much here but it's still the tip of the ice berg. I was stationed on the Aircraft Carrier USS Midway CV41 back in 1981-1983 homeported in Yokosuka Japan. Same port as the USS Ronald Regan. Could have been personal for my shipmate and I and as such I find the handeling "or lack of" repulsive. To touch on the subject at hand I have only one question… Why does it always seem that most of the "nuke" people to state that there is an obvious problem are those that are no longer employed by the nuclear machine? I believe that these people have the best chance at getting their peers the see the light. I hope this comment is following the guidlines.

    I live in Southern California (unfortunately) and will need to until I retire in about 1.5 years.(I'm already packing)
    Can anyone of the contributors above or anyone else quantify the known amount of radiation we have so far received in relation to known maximum dosages per year and per lifetime?
    I'm old school and much of this is Greek to me. I have children, grand-children and recently great grand-children and I would be thankful if someone could quantify the risks we face.

    • you want me to put a number on it? My stupid wild ass guesses are better than most academics thesis work.

      You have been gifted with a 3 to 4 times greater chance of developing a debilitating take down type disease or cancer than prior to Fuku.

  • WesternKyMan

    Natural ionizing radiation vs. man made radiation.

    Pro nukers always use this argument. This is total BS as always.

    Human beings have evolved for eons in a radioactive world. The body has slowly adapted over the eons to this.

    Man made radiation, like C-137, has been around for about 70 years or so. It has no place in the human body and human body doesn't know how to handle it.

    Trying to lump all radiation effects into a single pile is one of the main points of pro nuke.

    They use bananas… so I will use butter.

    Natural radiation is spread all over the world, in the oceans, the lands etc.

    Natural radiation would be comparable to a tiny drop of butter spread over an entire loaf of bread.

    Man-made radiation would be a pound of butter stuck between two slices of bread.

    There is a huge difference between the two.

  • WesternKyMan

    Nuclear power is safe. Smile and radiation won't hurt you. You live around natural radiation all your life… it's safe!!!

    Its so safe that it causes uranium miners to have incidences of lung cancer magnitudes of levels higher than a comparable percentage of humans.

    It's safe alright. On another planet maybe.

      All mining is dangerous. I've been in contact with the Mine Safety Association on several key issues related to radiation exposure, emergency preparedness. And its not just nuclear. Radiation released from radon during coal mining takes its toll.

      Before clicking 'Submit Comment', please make sure it's: 1) On-Topic – This includes off-topic political, religious, or other such comments; 2) Relevant; 3) Not repetitive; 4) Not insulting, rude or hateful – No personal attacks; 5) A maximum of four short paragraphs (or ~25%, whichever is less) if copy and pasted from an external news source due to copyright reasons; 6) Links to personal websites will still be allowed, but limited to no more than two links per post.

      Most of us are anti-nuclear here, but the majority aren't without a sense of balance.

      Who do we think will be hired for the inevitable nuclear waste storage jobs looming on the horizon? The industry is dying, but it needs a lot of funeral directors and embalmers. Their children may follow in dad's footsteps to clean up the mess. Will our kids enter that industry as a worker? Probably not. So don't throw out the 99.99% of the nuclear workers who do their job because somebody else won't do it.

    All these top officials have balls the size peas when it comes to challenging anything that would possibly impact their careers and retirement…totally gutless. I would have hated myself forever if I had a job that could have put the brakes on the insanity of nuclear power…even if I couldn't have totally stopped it, I might have slowed it down just enough to get people to look at it more closely……
