Japan Times, Mar 8, 2015 (emphasis added): Katsuhide Okada… didn’t worry much about the power plant: It was so safe, Tepco told the Futaba community… [T]he roses that Mr. Okada cultivated over a lifetime — more than 750 varieties, nearly 8,000 bushes — have perished. Still, Okada has returned to Futaba 10 times… he was interviewed on NHK appearing grim and heartbroken… Maya Moore, a former news anchor and journalist at NHK, happened to catch Okada’s interview… she collaborated with Okada and the group in putting together the book “The Rose Garden of Fukushima.”

The forward to ‘The Rose Garden of Fukushima’ was written by US Ambassador to Japan (2009-13) John Roos: “The incredible tale of Katz Okada and his Fukushima rose garden as told here by Maya Moore… gives you a small window into what the people of Tohoku faced”

WHYY, Apr 24, 2015 – Interview with Maya Moore, former NHK news anchor and author of The Rose Garden of Fukushima (22:15 in): It’s just poisoned wasteland. The last time Mr. Okada actually went back in there, he found baby crows that could not fly, that were blind. Mutations have begun with animals, with birds.

Several studies have linked the Fukushima disaster to mutations in wildlife and specifically discussed negative effects on crow populations:

Dr. Tim Mousseau, Professor of Biological Sciences at the Univ. of South Carolina, 2014 (pdf): We have studied biodiversity at Chornobyl since 2000 and Fukushima since 2011. Most organisms that we have examined showed significantly increased rates of genetic damage in direct proportion to the level of exposure… Many organisms showed increased rates of deformities, developmental abnormalities, eye cataracts, and even tumors and cancers.

Smithsonian, Apr 30, 2015: Birds Are in a Tailspin Four Years After Fukushima — Like the proverbial canary in a coalmine… Mousseau and his team have assembled a grim portrait… their data show that bird species and abundances are in sharp decline, and the situation is getting worse… “where it’s much, much hotter, it’s dead silent. You’ll see one or two birds if you’re lucky.”… birds such as the carrion crow… demonstrated higher susceptibility… 2012, he began capturing birds [with] patches of bleach-white feathers… the patches have a high coincidence with… cataracts, tumors, asymmetries, developmental abnormalities… By 2013, the birds… had white patches big enough to be seen through binoculars.

Journal of Ornithology (Moller, Nishiumi, Mousseau). Mar 2015: Recent seminal studies of butterflies… found strong evidence for increased mutation rates, developmental abnormalities and population effects as a direct consequence of exposure to [Fukushima] radionuclides… these unambiguously supported observations of the elevated mutation rates and phenotypic effects observed in the field.

Journal of Ornithology (Moller, Nishiumi, Mousseau), Feb 2015: [S]pecies showing the strongest negative correlated with level of background radiation level at [Fukushima] were Tree Sparrow [and] Carrion Crow

Journal of Heredity (Moller & Mousseau), 2014: Developmental Effects: Albinism, Asymmetry, Brain Size, Cataracts, Sperm, and Tumors — There is an increasing array of empirical studies in Chernobyl, and now Fukushima [documenting] consequences of exposure… white spots on feathers of birds and perhaps the fur of mammals (i.e., cattle in Fukushima)… first detected in Fukushima in 2012 [were] observed in increasing frequencies in 2013 and 2014.

Presentation by Mousseau, 2014 (48:15 in): We’re actually starting to see these partial albinos popping up in Fukushima… They’re popping up all over the place in contaminated areas.

I just don't know if the Japanese, who have many strengths, have the fortitude to address the ongoing crisis. It seems obvious that they cannot address this multi-front, multi-decade, multi-trillion dollar problem on their own. The WORLD must dive into it with a fury NOW!!

        Everyone says you can't stop it, but I don't believe that… There are always new possibilities &/or combinations of possibilities. Plus, even a small (less than 5%) improvement of this abomination would be extremely beneficial, especially on a long-term scale…

    Sellafield nuclear waste storage safety limit relaxed following accident via The Guardian

    Amount of radioactive waste that can be kept in tanks allowed to breach legal limits to help cope with backlog caused by an accident in November 2013

    Safety limits on the storage of some of the world’s most dangerous nuclear wastes at Sellafield in Cumbria have been relaxed after an accident knocked out a treatment plant.

    The government’s safety watchdog, the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR), has permitted the private company that runs Sellafield to breach legal restrictions on the amount of hot, high-level radioactive waste that can be kept in tanks. The limits are likely to be exceeded by up to 350 tonnes between April 2014 and July 2016.

    Critics accused ONR of breaking their promises and putting Sellafield’s profits before safety. But ONR insisted there was “minimal hazard increase”, while Sellafield said it put safety first.

    The waste storage limits, imposed in 2001, were meant to reduce stocks to below 5,500 tonnes of uranium equivalent by July 2015. The aim was to minimise the risk of a disaster spreading a plume of potentially lethal radioactive contamination over the UK and Ireland – officially regarded as Sellafield’s “worst credible accident”.

    The liquid waste comes from Britain’s nuclear power stations and generates significant amounts of heat. …

    • rogerthat

      It has to be constantly cooled and stirred to prevent it from overheating.

      […]

      In a redacted report, ONR accepted that breaching the waste storage limits for 16 months would lead to a “modest increase in hazard”. But it concluded that temporarily shutting the reprocessing plant would be more risky, and so has replaced the limits with a weaker “operating rule” administered by Sellafield.

      Gordon Thompson, executive director of the US Institute for Resource and Security Studies and an expert on Sellafield, pointed out that the site’s liquid high-level wastes were “one of the world’s major concentrations of radiological hazard”. He accused ONR of breaking a promise made in 2001 to halt reprocessing if necessary to ensure that waste stocks were reduced.

      Reprocessing fuel from Britain’s newer reactors was “unnecessary, uneconomic, and hazardous,” he argued. “It compounds the waste problem, threatens international security, and never should have begun.”

      Martin Forward, from the local anti-nuclear group, Cumbrians Opposed to a Radioactive Environment (CORE), attacked ONR for “its apparent willingness to put Sellafield’s business interests before those of health and safety”. Public confidence in the regulator’s competence would “sink to an all-time low”, he claimed.

    Requirements: ePUB Reader, 3.2 MB
    Overview: …

    In the first definitive account of the Fukushima disaster, two leading experts from the Union of Concerned Scientists, David Lochbaum and Edwin Lyman, team up with journalist Susan Q. Stranahan, the lead reporter of the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Pulitzer Prize–winning coverage of the Three Mile Island accident, to tell this harrowing story.

    Fukushima combines a fast-paced, riveting account of the tsunami and the nuclear emergency it created with an explanation of the science and technology behind the meltdown as it unfolded in real time. Bolstered by photographs, explanatory diagrams, and a comprehensive glossary, the narrative also extends to other severe nuclear accidents to address both the terrifying question of whether it could happen elsewhere and how such a crisis can be averted in the future.

      Run some stats..

      But James the population is seeing problems in their children.
      All sources have to be on the table.
      And as we know the medical industry is just as greedy and cutthroat as any other industry.
      Why would they say anything other.
      The pharmaceutical industry needs a 'pusher man'
      Back to the title..respect is earned James.

      "But whenever nuclear energy is discussed on TV or in the news, the nuclear science community is never referenced, in fact, there rarely is a real nuclear scientist present. Only anti-nuclear activists."

    Let's get to the heart of the matter.

    "raise this issue because last week the Presidents of39 scientific and international societies signed a pro-nuclear declaration for addressing climate change. The Nuclear for Climate Declaration was introduced during the International Congress on Advances in Nuclear Power Plants in Nice, France, and re-iterated that nuclear power is vital to fighting climate change. These societies represent 50,000 members from 36 countries (American Nuclear Society)."

    What all 50,000 menbers and a few nuclear scientists do not understand.
    Remedial ..but at what cost?
    Nuclear? ..so we can go into another circumstance like Fukushima?
    At what cost, James?
    Don't be pre-emptive.
    Let us witness what a large amount of uncontained nuclear material is going to do.
    At what price ..for this supposed control on global warming?
    We have spent fuel dangling over a fault at Diablo Canyon.
    Issues across the board.

    "It’s like everyone’s afraid to talk about nuclear energy because they’re afraid they don’t know anything about it and will look stupid. But all they have to do is talk to their friendly neighborhood nuclear scientist."

    Your team kinder and friendlier somehow?

      So these geniuses say that 80 nuclear plants could create the ocean in one year… Well, I can say one thing for the nuclear power people — Megalomaniacs!

        "A 60-page report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has estimated the worth of oceans around the world around $24 trillion dollars. Every year, oceans lead to around $2.5 trillion of output every year."

        Obviously, The people at the World Wildlife Fund are idiots at finance. Their hearts are in the right place.

        2.5 Trillion X 9.6 = 24 trillion

        If I had a business that created $24,000 per year guaranteed output FOREVER, and required zero overhead expenses AND I sold it for $230,000 (9.6 x 24,000), I would not be very wise. 10 percent return – forever. That's really awesome. Say i lived eighty years— that would be $1,920,000 In lifetime income.

        If I put that $24,000 into a bank, and each year I added $24,000 for eighty years, with interest compounded at only 2 percent annually, it would return $4,860,548.07

        Just a little perspective…and the true value of the world's oceans for anyone but a fool. It's priceless! Even as a toxic waste dump it's worth $500 Trillion trillion. It's the last one they don't make them (oceans) anymore.

    I have been posting for years that both children and adults in Japan and the west coast of the United States and Canada should be detoxing with the powdered mineral called Zeolite to safely remove the radioactive isotopes from their bodies! This is your only best choice to prevent the coming human mutations and it will be horrible! Mark My Words! This is important and powdered zeolite really works!
