Arnie Gundersen, Chief Engineer at Fairewinds, Dec. 16, 2013 (at 3:30 in): Large puddles of black particles have been found on the side of the road, each individual grain is extraordinarily radioactive. This is fall-out, this is hot particles that have coalesced together on the side of the road. Recently a hot particle was discovered 250 miles [400 kilometers] away from Fukushima. It was so radioactive that if it were a pound of material instead of just a particle, the pound would be giving off 20 billion disintegrations per second [44 billion becquerels per kilogram] […] That small speck could easily be lodged in someone’s lung. >> Watch the video here

Japan’s Black Dust, Fairewinds Energy Education, July 10, 2013: Marco Kaltofen, President at Boston Chemical Data Corp. & Doctoral student researcher at Worcester Polytechnic Institute: [...] We kept hearing reports about something unusual, a black dust [...] we finally got a very small sample [...] It’s a single substance. It’s not a mix of mineral particles and pieces of dead bugs and plant matter and dust particles [...] it doesn’t look like the surrounding soils. And it is much more intensely radioactive than any other soil or dust sample we’ve gotten from around Fukushima Daiichi. [...]  There’s something unusual happening with this stuff. [...] this particle contains not only fission waste products from the reactor but very likely contains a concentrated unburned nuclear fuel. And that’s unusual. This sample had by far the highest level of uranium daughters that we’ve seen in a dust or soil sample. We’re actually seeing material that might well have come from inside a failed fuel assembly. >> Watch the video here

    I talked to Arnie Gunderson, at the Mark I & Mark II Congressional Briefing in D.C., and he said this is only the beginning. The Japanese Govt., and TEPCO are not going to spend the Trillions of USD's.

    I said Trillions, not Billions!

    If you want to fix it, like the USSR did, one reactor in six months, then you need to use over 100,000 workers.

    Many only for minutes, and have them never do it again. Watch the "Uncensored Battle of Chernobyl" on the video page at radiationhealthnews.com. You will see workers who only worked 5-minutes and were done! That is #3 Reactor. It is where they need to use the Former Workers for Fukushima. You will die working on #3, but it needs to be shored up, before it collapses in the up and coming over 5.0R Earthquake!

    I have wondered since the beginning of the FUFU weather or not there is enough money world wide to safely get out of this global mess. Now I have doubts about enough fresh water available for the time span needed to cool 3 great globs of corium. To just stop adding cooling water, and allow the ground water to do the job, could be risky, boron etc. needs to be regularly added to each cauldron of death. Seawater will create quadrillions more Bucky balls in X time increments so the wisdom of stopping the groundwater flow and allowing in back siphoned seawater from storm surge, or one of those 'never to happen again' EQ/tsunamis that could interact with any ongoing criticality lurking below is a bit out on a limb. A never-ending column of black death dust, yikes! Another thing that bugs me about all this, is: What if the corium ELEments in contaminated ground water coming in contact with the sodium ions in seawater after they flow away from the NPP; make BB C60 carbon cage molecules encapsulating U/PU, and many other radioisotope clusters at their centers anyways? Shiver me timbers, I hope it is simply fuel dust!

    "…The Reagan’s crew had been assured that there was no radiation to worry about over the open ocean and, as the ship’s navigator, Enis had been led to believe that the radiation was a distinct plume that they could avoid. It was now apparent that the radiation cloud was everywhere, and avoiding it would not always be possible.

    On the quarter mile long deck there was another alarming note.

    “I had a digital watch,” said quartermaster Jaime Plym, “and it suddenly stopped working. Somebody made a crack that radiation would do that. There were five or six of us on deck and everyone looked at their watches – and all the digital watches had stopped. There was one that was real expensive, and it wasn’t working either.

      Yes, this Fukushima event and all other Nuclear Power Generation accidents in the very near future will send the final nails into the world's fate and circumstance. Disease for 100% of all biological life remaining on this planet. :(
      The numbers do not lie:
      Fact: 127 million people living in Japan/1.36 current birth rate/Japan is dying after 1945 Nuclear Bomb blasts
      Fact: For every 3 people that die in Japan 1 dies from cancer/Nuclear radiation Contamination is the cause
      Fact: 127 million x 25% cancer death rate= 31,750,000 Japanese citizens will die directly from cancer
      Fact: 75% increase in cancer rates projected by 2030
      Fact: 31,750,000 x 75% increase cancer rate =+23,812,500 deaths or 55,562,500 cancer deaths
      ~Extrapolate world cancer deaths at 7 billion human population~ Cause Radiation Contamination~
      Fact: Potential 1.75 billion cancer deaths now and by 2030/3.06 billion cancer deaths worldwide

      All of this disease and death so some/just a few Nuclear Pukes can play around with the splitting of the atom to simply heat water? :(

      We (humans) certainly are all bat-shit crazy as a species! :(

      I was asked a party recently, will you take chemo? This question posed to me by a college degreed educator? :(

Thanks.

          Myau, the numbers are based on "all" those alive in Japan and then extrapolated to the rest of the world, born then to any age at death, at those projected dates.

          1945 start point due to introduction of Nuclear Technology to Planet Earth!
          Possible rate overlap window ranges:
          Japan 2012 at 25% rate (range 1945 to 2035)
          Japan 2030 at 44% rate (range 2012 to 2102)

          So the disease/cancer windows to watch are from 0/birth to 90/death age groups.

          The USA is also at a loosing birth rate and well below the 2.13 required to maintain a viable civilization.

          The only reason this is not seen/reported in the USA is because of the massive legal and illegal immigration numbers now entering the country 24/7 to skew all results reported.

          It would appear the Earth's Extermination Protocol is now active thanks to our application and use of the invisible, odorless, tasteless Nuclear Technology!

          The entire world will be negatively effected by these recent 3 Nuclear Core Meltdowns, with no end in sight, at Fukushima to some degree. :(

          Numbers will increase based on new future Nuclear Meltdowns/Accidents should they occur.

          Ergo: Why the World Extrapolation numbers!

    Scientists: ‘Spheres’ of radioactive material from Fukushima reported for first time — Ball-like particles composed of cesium, iron, zinc — Solid and insoluble in water — Impact on human health needs to be examined (PHOTOS)

    "The Fukushima nuclear accident released radioactive materials into the environment over the entire Northern Hemisphere […] we still do not know the exact physical and chemical properties of the radioactive materials. This study directly observed spherical Cs-bearing particles emitted during a relatively early stage (March 14-15) of the accident. In contrast to the Cs-bearing radioactive materials that are currently assumed, these particles are larger, contain Fe, Zn, and Cs, and are water insoluble. Our simulation indicates that the spherical Cs-bearing particles mainly fell onto the ground by dry deposition."

    "44 billion becquerels per kilogram"
    The black ubstance, that is everywhere in Japan, is so much worse than we knew.
    And we knewfrom the first reports that it was very bad.
    The quote says it is "unburned fuel".
    It is actually burned fuel, IMHO.
    When the corium crust fissions, it burns Uranium and Plutonium into daughter nuclides.
    This is happening continuously.
    As corium burns, it gives off this soot.

    Still NO PLAN and NO ACTION to build Impermeable Wall around Units1-4 to stop groundwater from becoming contaminated.

    Still NO PLAN and NO ACTION to locate 3 missing cores.

    Puny and ineffective response.

    We get bluff and bluster towards China, but no action at Fukushima.
    This is all getting much, much worse at a rate that alarms even we ENEnewser Alarmists! ;)

      Do you have any idea what that could do to TEPCO's profits (and therefore, Abe's bank accounts, too)? No, far better to just keep pretending until all the news is slowly leaked out like a slowly cooking frog. At that point, whatever tiny subsidiary of TEPCO is still connected to Fukushima-Daiichi can simply fold or walk away, claiming that they need a government or even international bailout. Of course, by then the company's collection of precious, expensive isotopes will be stored all across Japan and most other mid-latitude land masses.

    They state that the radioactive particles are electrically charged and tend to attract each other, is this a avenue worth study to see if you could collect the isotopes through this process, has anybody tried?

      Shamma,

      Sometimes there seem to be more (drunken) Trolls than lefties on this website.

      In either case, I can assure you I am a libertarian who, for example, believes big government and communitarianism are stripping people of personal responsibility and accountability, de-legitimizing and marginalizing the authority of the family and other traditional non-state social institutions, and creating a dangerous "group think" tendency in society, that could run us all off a cliff.

      As Obewan says, the left/right is a wholly contrived dialectic, a dialectic designed to divide people over the social issues that the people care about, but the wealthy and the agency lobbyists do not, and then divide (or share) the economic and national security issues that the wealthy and government lobbyists care about between the two parties. So, the people get to pick their poison: For example, left is for big government; right is for big corporations; but nowhere is neither. Both are essentially united for the current war on Terror, as well as monetary and economic policy, not to mention oil policy.

      The nuclear issue presents a classic "tragedy of the commons" problem. In any instance where the few have some large incentive to do a thing that then destroys something much more valuable to society in the long run, the behavior must be regulated or prohibited. Even a libertarian would say so.

    Yet a handful of International Capitalism Extremists can do the same on a truly massive scale and the people poisoned have to struggle to get the news out.

    It's pretty clear we've been duped.

      The nuclear industry is fascist and communist, not capitalists. Nuclear energy cannot exist without huge government subsidies or without being freed of any liability for any mismanagement or accidents. This is not capitalism. Nuclear energy is exorbitantly expensive. Making people pay for their own death is not civilized, but sick, sick, sick.

        YES. As I posted previously, no need for capital interests, lawyers etc.. to make nuclear power generation a reality…just the will of the state. Even a state cloaked in the guise of a democracy.

          So, who is at the "top", then? Is it the President? Congress? They didn't build Fukushima-Daiichi.

          A: It's the 1500 (or so, worldwide) Billionaires. It was money (and it's associate, power) that bought the politicians and built the plants and for what end? To make a profit, and to increase personal, political power. It only approximates "communism" because in a democracy, everyone pays via government subsidies which were lobbied for by…the capital investors (can you see the cycle?).

        Fascism: the blending of government and corporation. Although not necessary (ie other forms are possible), currently that means the the capitalists who own both the corporations and via influence, the politicians (ie, the government). Here in the USA, if they can easily influence both parties, they really have little to fear from the power of a "democracy".
