Channel 17 (Burlington, VT), published Feb. 26, 2014 — Maggie Gundersen, Founding director of Fairewinds Energy Education (at 21:00 in): “Tepco just announced that all the data it collected for almost 3 years is wrong, and that they had miscalculated how much radiation was released.”

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
(Hearst Newspapers), Feb. 25, 2014: […] only bad news comes out of Fukushima […] Bloomberg reported the amount of radiation that leaked from Fukushima could have been far greater than originally stated.

Bloomberg, Feb. 25, 2014: Tepco Says Fukushima Radiation ‘Significantly’ Undercounted — [Tepco] is re-analyzing 164 water samples collected last year at the wrecked Fukushima atomic plant because previous readings “significantly undercounted” radiation levels. […] Shinji Kinjo, leader of a disaster task force at Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority, said his office hadn’t been aware of the measurement errors. The regulator’s oversight of the utility is based on Tepco’s measurements, he added. […]

TEPCO, Feb. 25, 2014: […] improvement needs to be made in the reliability of the sampling and testing of water for radioactivity at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station […] TEPCO President Naomi Hirose said, “Public confidence in our reports on radiation levels is essential to everything we are doing” […] “gross beta” density [including Strontium-90] in water samples taken in the period between April and September 2013 was significantly under-counted […] On February 24, TEPCO has published a list of 164 samples for which it believes radiation was undercounted. […]

Asahi Shimbun, Feb. 26, 2014: [After being exposed to fallout from a US nuclear bomb test, Matashichi] Oishi married, but their first child was stillborn. He also was diagnosed with liver cancer. […] His former crewmates began dying when they were still in their 40s and 50s. […] “Politicians are hiding the dangers of radiation,” he says. […] “What happened on Bikini Atoll 60 years ago is being quietly repeated in Fukushima,” he says.

  • bluetick

    and where is the story? I think everyone with a brain has known this for at least 2 years. DUH comes to mind

    • FallOut FallOut

      ( So bluetick ? How bad is it then ? )

      In recent times, more information about the spent fuel situation at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site has become known. It is my understanding that of the 1,532 spent fuel assemblies in reactor No. 304 assemblies are fresh and unirradiated. This then leaves 1,231 irradiated spent fuel rods in pool No. 4, which contain roughly 37 million curies (~1.4E+18 Becquerel) of long-lived radioactivity.

      Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity. About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 — roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-Daichi site contains nearly half of the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel).

      It is important for the public to understand that reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet.

      A senior nuclear adviser to the Japanese Prime Minister, professor Toshiso Kosako resigned in protest from his government. This as the Japanese government raised the level of permissible exposure to schoolchildren twenty fold, from 1mSv/year to 20mSv.

      However, food grown and animals grazed in contaminated regions will pass along radiation to human populations for centuries. The Japanese reliance on fish will soon produce another shock to their nation as larger fish absorb more radioactive particles up the food chain.However, food grown and animals grazed in contaminated regions will pass along radiation to human populations for centuries.

    • It seems, everything about this disaster is "far worse" than anybody thinks. (Good article by Harvey Wasserman).

      Let's throw in a $4.3 billion aircraft carrier:

      Documents Show the Navy Knew Fukushima Dangerously Contaminated the USS Reagan

      "The $4.3 billion boat is now docked in San Diego. Critics question whether it belongs there at all. Attempts to decontaminate U.S. ships irradiated during the Pacific nuclear bombs tests from 1946-1963 proved fruitless. Hundreds of sailors were exposed to heavy doses of radiation, but some ships had to be sunk anyway. "

      • And a few helicopters;

        "Serious fallout was also apparently found on helicopters coming back from relief missions. One unnamed U.S. government expert is quoted in the Japan Focus article as saying:

        At 100 meters away it (the helicopter) was reading 4 sieverts per hour. That is an astronomical number and it told me, what that number means to me, a trained person, is there is no water on the reactor cores and they are just melting down, there is nothing containing the release of radioactivity. "

      • FallOut FallOut

        … but, but, but, …..

        The Asahi Shimbun reported Tuesday that the mud in 468 reservoirs outside of the Fukushima evacuation zone contain levels of cesium high enough to be designated waste that must be removed. The mud in the Myotoishi reservoir, 55 kilometers west of the stricken Fukushima plant, had a cesium level of 370,000 becquerels per kilogram, a level the newspaper described as "mind boggling". The central government has classified levels over 8,000 becquerels as material that must be removed; however the Environment Ministry says it has no plans to remove the contaminated mud.

        However, the Myotoishi reservoir is located on a hilltop, so this explanation rings hollow. The Myotoshi reservoir is in the middle of a residential area, ringed by 392 homes and a high school. The fact that a plume of cesium so concentrated that 370,000 becquerels per kilogram remains in the mud passed through this community 55 kilometers (34 miles) from the nuclear disaster raises serious questions about the exposures received by these and other residents far outside the evacuation zones.

          Might I suggest that, by law, all of these nuclear proponents in government, past and present, be required to carry a piece of Fukushima in their pockets as Marie Curie supposedly did with a piece of radium that so fascinated her? They can then tax me, and I'll pay gladly, for their lead-lined coffins.

        • Fall out man!

          Also, its important to remember, that in some way the focus on cancer by the nuke industry is a deliberate side track. Chernobyl showed that normally other radiation induced diseases kill people before cancer can. Heart attack and stroke being the two primary killers after exposure to caesium in fallout. People in the Ukraine and Belarus started to get blasé about Chernobyl about three years after the disaster. Then panic set in at the 5 year mark when otherwise normal people started dropping dead from heart attacks. We haven't hit the 5 year mark yet with Fukushima. From memory (previously reported on Enenews) experience from the Ukraine shows that once a person gets over 37bq/kg of caesium exposure, they can expect irreversible heart damage. Which is not to say nothing can be done about it, in the Ukraine chelation of caesium has been used to save the lives of exposed children for example. Anyway, the point is, its worth remembering that cancer usually takes many years to set in, and other fall out effects act much faster, very often killing people before they have a chance to get cancer.

    There was a plan behind this method of information from Day One.

    But as I've said before, the perpetrators and their cohorts overestimated how the public would react. There was never any reason for them to worry. It's amazing how well we have adjusted to news of this catastrophe.

        Don't worry about me, I am well aware of this little gig. The water started to boil for me in the year 1998, I got out in 1999. When 911 came, I had already taken the red pill. Learned how to use the internet and spent a year just marveling at how the water rolled and the steam rose in little wafts.

        I knew something was wrong with the picture. The guy in the white lab coat kept saying, "You are either for us or against us." But you had to go to the concrete barricades with the barbed wired fashion fence to ask, "Why the white coats, guys?"

      • Obewanspeaks,

        in the past we were told that security authorities failed to "connect the dots" to protect Americans from terror. That much was true.

        But when people connect the dots in what the security establishment is doing to them the picture that emerges is absolutely chilling.

        The protocols you mention do not seem geared at protecting us. The neglect of victims during Katrina, Sandy, and now their allowing this slow nuking of all life on Earth is evidence – for whoever is still in denial – that they are using taxpayers money just to protect the power elite.

        In the last couple of days it was made public that security agencies have been spying on children's webcam conversations with their grandma, and those of everyone else. Not that they would want to blackmail anyone…

Matter can become energy, or energy become matter, but what is is and that's that. Then they say that out of nothing came a big bang. Matter and energy were created! O.K…

    Evidence that TEPCO has lied about the magnitude of radiation released has been put forth many times to these organizations. To all the major news agencies including Bloomberg, Seattle Post and including Fairewinds (Arnie Gundersen). None of them wanted to report that it is many magnitudes greater. Note that I say IS, Fairewinds says WAS. It it not a past event but a continuing one.

    None of them mention the coriums are likely in the ground with little hope to control the continual contamination of the ocean.

    None of them are mentioning the radiation that has hit the US is many, many times greater than experts lead us to believe. Or that the effects on life forms in the US and in the west coast ocean has already begun, and it is very real and very bad.

    They lead you to believe the radiation is "over there". It is here but they do not want to talk about that. Or that the toxic soup hitting the west coast is many times worse than they have lead people to believe.

    Thanks for nothing Fairewinds/Arnie Gundersen, you are as detrimental as Bloomberg.

          Fuel rods, for now, maybe build 7 or 8 pools much farther inland, away from the 140,000 nSv/h plant where they can be dealt with much more handily. Once the complete underground wall is built, the rads are going to increase indefinitely as I would think the underground river is what's washing out a lot of the radioactivity. Once all that water is now stagnant/isolated under the plant and not moving…it's just going to get further and further radiated into oblivion. It would make the site unworkable for good with unfathomable levels.

          But I'm no expert.

    "Shinji Kinjo, leader of a disaster task force at Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority, said his office hadn’t been aware of the measurement errors. The regulator’s oversight of the utility is based on Tepco’s measurements, he added."

    Just for perspective:
    "The regulator’s oversight of the utility is based on Tepco’s [admittedly false] measurements."

    The observed radiation readings in groundwater indicate that the groundwater is coming into contact with nuclear fuel corium located in the ground.

    The observed level of contamination cannot possibly be from groundwater that has leaked into the reactor buildings, and cooling water that has leaked out of the buildings.
    The observed radiation readings in groundwater are coming from groundwater flowing around melted fuel in the ground, and flowing through corium lava tubes left behind by the meltout.
    In the ground!

    Too bad the bad data was trusted without question by all of the mass reporting agencies…

    Atomics for underling 101.

    Cesium 137.

    You may have heard frauds compare cesium 137 with cesium 133 or even potassium found naturally in a banana.

    Cesium 137 is a man made byproduct of atomic radiation power production & atomic bomb blasts. It has a half-life of 30 years; it mimics potassium in how it enters large organs in your body. Cesium 137 can mutate cells DNA into a cancer; because it is active for a long period of time it has many years in low doses to cause damage to your body. Medically used cesium 137 is not ingested by breathing particles or eating contaminated food. There is NO SAFE DOSE of cesium 137. It only takes one particle to attach to a cell to possibly cause a cancer to develop. Remember medical cesium 137 does not enter your mouth, stomach or is breathed into your lungs.

    The atomic disaster in Japan was caused by General Electric Hitachi designed and or manufactured atomic radiation reactors failing to contain atomic radiation. The outcome being atomic radiation has and continues to be released into the environment polluting the world for centuries. Cesium 137 was NOT the only atomic radiation released.

    Its bad,bad,bad the public has been lulled,bamboozled outright greenwashed,sustained,developed and radiated- lied to.
    memes pushed, isotopes are good, cute or something not too too harmful.
    Well they are extremely grotesquely and utterly poisonous. Its
    Omnicidal to deal in Nuclear energy.
    Albuquerque NM named it's baseball team the isotopes!
    The cover up of this ongoing slow motion ELE is the biggest story.
    By the time it comes out it will be too late,it really already is.
    Its a matter of the truth.
    People ought to know,have a right to know how stupid and evil people have been-its not all rosy out there and the government is not your friend.

    Has Japan returned the Plutonium back to the USA yet? Or was it returned…airborne..Collect on Delivery(COD)?

  • Nick

    Levels significantly understated.

    THAT is all we need to know.

    Now, for those of you who have NOT been up to speed with Fukushimess, take some time to watch
    You-Tube videos of the events of 3/11/11. Don't worry about being mesmerized by the tsunami footage, it helps to understand how powerful the earthquake was, the vast energy that was released.

    Now imagine the shaking and rattling and cracking that destroyed one of the world's largest nuclear power (plus weapons grade stuff?) plants in the world, a site having also one of the world's largest concentration of radioactive waste (spent fuel pools).

    As you watch #1 and #3 blow, try to stifle that chill running up your spine.

    Still think bananas are the enemy?

    • Nick, just as the WIPP plant director stated….the dose as WIPP is just like getting a dental Xray….

      Its not the bananas dude, now we now it is the Dental Xrays!

      Seriously, he said that….huffin down Plutonium is like a dental xray

  • Nick

    It really shouldn't be THAT hard for any average person to conclude that Fukushima was/is/will be a disaster for the rest of time.

    No shill on the planet will be able to obfuscate or placate the masses much longer.

    on 3/11/14….Fukushima will go viral beyond anyone's expectations.

    Start popping that popcorn.

  • GQR2

    Fukushhhh will engender viruses beyond anyone's expectations.

    March 1, anniversary of largest nuclear bomb ever exploded, by the US, "Illumination Day" to recognize victims.

    • SadieDog

      – On March 1, 2014, people from all countries are asked to join together online and in their communities to educate, pay respect, and honor the Marshallese people affected by the Castle Bravo test, which was 1000 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

    As an analogy;
    Where's your homework Johnny Tepco.

    Well teacher it's like this.
    I was walking to school and rain puddles lined the street.
    So your home work fell in the mud puddle?
    No, the wind blew it out of my arms, that's when this truck came by and I had to jump out of the way and when I did my home work went up into the wind.
    So your home work then fell in a puddle?
    No, I ran for blocks chasing my home work and I was about to catch it and this big dog attacked me.
    So, the dog ate your home work?
    No, the dog reached the end of it's chain just short of biting me and I fell alongside the mud puddle with my home work in my hand.
    So, your home work then fell with you into the puddle?
    No, fearing for my life while lying in the road, I rolled out of the way.
    So, you saved your home work?
    No, when I rolled away from the mud puddle towards the curb this big shark jumped out of the mud puddle and ate my home work.
    So, where is your home work?
    Your gonna have to ask the shark.

    “Public confidence in our reports on radiation levels is essential to everything we are doing”

    Now J. TEPCO is willing to get fishing poles and go look for that boy attacking killer shark that lurks along our roadways in mud puddles, so this never happens again to little boys and girls.
    I feel better now.

    my apologies to all those named Johnny.

    In 1958, my family boat sat the Golden Rule in Honolulu.

    My parents knew then that the nuclear age was fraught with dangers.

    But, although the US did eventually stop atmospheric tests, the nasty nuclear goodies continued to pile up until the present day.

    We are now at a tipping point rarely seen in the history of planet earth.

    Get ready.

      "Get ready."

      I have 30 pounds of beans and a gallon of water.

      I have a bean and a teacup of water. C'mon!

  • obewanspeaks obewanspeaks

    You will be fine, maybe a little gassy, but that is OK! 🙂

  • Nick

    No, the only way to get ready is to carry on with your life.

    Termination will happen.

    Some of us will go sooner than others.

    It is written.

    We will KNOW what is REALLY going on when it is undeniable.
    When we see everything and everyone around us sick and dying.. And we will know only by the obvious signs.. They still will not tell us the truth.
    Humans are being managed by rich and powerful people, like we manage cattle..
    Its that simple.

  • We Not They Finally

    They lie, lie, lie, lie, and lie. And now there is a Japanese law protecting the lies. So what is now forcing them to at least admit that their measurements were a pack of lies all along? I quaver to think what…..
