Title: Forgotten Fukushima-Japan Two Years After the Daiichi Accident

Nuclear Expert Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education: One of the things I’ve discovered when I look at the drawings, the accident movies, you see the plume going down on the ground, which didn’t happen at Chernobyl. Chernobyl burned upward […]

At Fukushima the plume goes down, it’s something called ‘Building Wake Effect’. So I think that the exposures in close, in the 20 and 30 and 40 km range are actually going to be higher than we saw at Chernobyl and because of the fact all of the stacks and everything that was designed to get that radioactivity up in the air were destroyed because they had no electricity to run the fans. […] you’ll have to listen to my speech*.

    The plume meander factor in low wind speed situations is a dangerous fallout scenario described 30 years ago by the NRC:

    "These tests confirm the existence of effluent plume "meander" during low windspeed conditions…"

    SP: The Unit 3 low lying MOX plume on March 16-17, 2011 that meandered slowly across the Tokyo Metroplex is of enormous interest to independent researchers, but well-shunned by Japanese nucleocrats.

    You can bet that after Unit1 blew up, US spy satellites were repositioned to keep watch over Fuku. It is now time to release the footage of Unit3. I'm curious to see Unit3 plume, which was visable from space, after two hours, four hours, six hours, and over the next day. Would like to see the actual plume drifting over Tokyo. I even wonder if there wasn't some communication between US CIA/DOD and Japanese Government/Military, delivering the warning. But nevertheless, Japan sat in place, and did not warn the people. And so Japan is now a dying nation. Japan is toast. So sad.

    Iori M. of Fukushima Diary claims to actually see that plume , was low and yellow in color . His neighbours at the time saw it too , and probably many others , even HD Survailance cameras …

  • RSOE EDIS reporting Slovenian plant closed again today due to 'steam' problems. It was closed for over 52 days last year….1 day a week….I think a wind turbine has more uptime than that….
