Public Release from Goldschmidt Conference, Jun 26, 2016 (emphasis added): New research shows that most of the radioactive fallout which landed on downtown Tokyo a few days after the Fukushima accident was concentrated and deposited in non-soluble glass microparticles, as a type of ‘glassy soot’. This meant that most of the radioactive material was not dissolved in rain and running water… The particles also concentrated the radioactive caesium (Cs), meaning that in some cases dose effects of the fallout are still unclear… Japanese geochemists… analysed samples collected from within an area up to 230 km from the FDNPP… [I]t had been anticipated that most of the radioactive fallout would have been flushed from the environment by rainwater. However… most of the radioactive caesium in fact fell to the ground enclosed in glassy microparticles… [T]hese particles… formed during the molten core-concrete interaction inside the primary containment vessel in the Fukushima reactor units 1 and/or 3. Because of the high Cs content in the microparticles, the radioactivity per unit mass was as high as ~4.4×10^11 Bq/g [440,000,000,000,000 Bq/kg]… Analysis from several air filters collected in Tokyo on 15 March 2011 showed that 89% of the total radioactivity was present as a result of these caesium-rich microparticles, rather than the soluble Cs, as had originally been supposed.

Discovery (Seeker), Jun 27, 2016: Fukushima Accident Rained Glass Particles on Tokyo… Most of the radioactive fallout that descended upon downtown Tokyo in the days after the March 2011 accident [was] glass microparticles — essentially, glass-filled soot. As a result, the fallout, which contained concentrated radioactive cesium, wasn’t dissolved by rainfall, and probably lingered in the environment… Japanese scientists thought that most of it would be washed away by rainwater. Instead, analysis… revealed that most of the radioactive cesium in fact fell to the ground enclosed in glassy microparticles.

ANI, Jun 28, 2016: Research indicates Fukushima radioactive fallout may be worse than expected Most of the radioactive fallout, which landed on downtown Tokyo a few days after the Fukushima accident, was concentrated and deposited in non-soluble glass microparticles, as a type of ‘glassy soot’

Inverse, Jun 26, 2016: Radioactive “Glassy Soot” Fell Over Tokyo After the Fukushima Meltdown… The findings… show that the radioactive fallout… has been poorly understood. Previously, it was assumed that most of the radiation that fell dissolved in rain. This would mean that it would wash out of the soil and through the environment… These tiny glass particles entered the air and fell as soot on the surrounding region. Because the radioactive molecules are contained in an insoluble medium, they will not wash out of the soil with rainwater to the same extent… Beyond the consequences for the environment, there are significant consequences for human health. Breathing caesium encased in glass particles may have a very different impact from exposure to it as radioactive rain…

Scientists from Fukushima Univ., Japan Atomic Energy Agency, Stanford Univ., etc, June 2016: Cesium-rich micro-particles unveil the explosive events in the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant — Cesium-rich micro-particles (CsMPs) retain novel information on the molten core-concrete interaction… CsMPs specimens were discovered… in atmospheric particulates collected at Suginami, Tokyo… [Note: “The author has requested that this abstract is not discussed on social media.”]

Dr Satoshi Utsunomiya, Kyushu Univ.: “This work changes some of our assumptions about the Fukushima fallout… This may mean that our ideas of the health implications should be modified“.

Prof. Bernd Grambow, Director of SUBATECH laboratory, France: “[The observations] presented here are extremely important. They may change our understanding of the mechanism of long range atmospheric mass transfer of radioactive caesium from the reactor accident at Fukushima to Tokyo, but they may also change the way we assess inhalation doses from the caesium microparticles inhaled by humans. Indeed, biological half- lives of insoluble caesium particles might be much larger than that of soluble caesium“.

    The description "glass-filled soot" is exactly wrong (From the thread intro above.)
    The nano particles are more like glass-enclosed radionuclides.
    The glass is on the outside.
    Inside the glass nanoparticle are the radionuclides.
    The radionuclides do not change chemically, even in a 2,200 K nuclear meltdown fire.
    (This is why incineration of nuclear waste all over Japan is so stupid.
    Burn the isotopes up?
    Not gonna happen. 😉 )

    These nanoparticles are not water soluable.
    They are electrostatically attracted to human tissue.
    They go in.
    They don't come out.
    They stay put for the rest of your life, killing cells in all directions.

    Even one of these in your lung is lethal.

    Mine has a gamma component.
    Meaning I can find mine, and measure the gamma, over and above normal background radiation, with my Geiger counter.
    It measures 2X background most days.

    How long before one of them bullets hits a lung cell just right to cause the dna to mutate into cancer?
    5 years? 10 years? Someday, for sure.

    So, Tepco, when I ask you the question:

    "Where is the damn corium?"

    It's because time–my time–is short.
    Tepco ain't doing didly squat at Fukushima.
    Japan must take over the "cleanup".
    If not Japan, the UN.
    If not the UN, then the USA.

      And they made sure Fukusall will continue to serve everyone everywhere for a time longer then our microminds can comprehend..

      Another day in to the future..another dose cummulating..for thousands of years..in you And your children..and theirs if they manage to have some..doubtfully , because dna damage does not dissapears over generations , it cummulate there too..a few exceptions on that rule are noticed (if true) in a few species , but humans are Not amongst them..

    Folks,
    It is probably 100% probable that there is an active civilization of sentient living beings within our own galaxy.

    Potential new planets for membership in galactic society are very probably are not contacted prior to their arrival at a state of civilization where they have thrown off the twin growing pains of pollution and war.

    If I were a member of the Galactic Federation, I certainly would outlaw contact with the human race on Planet Earth for now, and would wait to see whether the human race was capable of sheding pollution and war.

    If the human race was able to exercise control over their civilization by defeating capitalism and greed, if they sought to reclame their environment, and were peaceful with each other for, say, 200 years or so, then I, as a citizen of the galaxy, might approve of a formal contact, and would favor extending an invitation for the human race to enter the Galactic Federation as an equal partner.

    Right now, not so much. 😉

      I read an article a few weeks ago that I have been searching to find again but it was about a major fishery deciding to move to the Atlantic Ocean because there wasn't enough fish in the Pacific any longer and what is left is crap "because of Fukushima". I wish I could find it again!!! When I read it I thought well there you go. A major Pacific commercial fishery is jumping ship (pun intended) and have named Fukushima. This is good news and bad news but definitely news everyone should know about. Wish I could find it again to link or at least get the name of the fishery. Sigh…

    This type of fallout has been noted before as the last enenews.com link in this post shows.

    If they didn't find any of these radioactive glass particles emitted from Chernobyl it was probably because they did not know to look for them.

    Reminds me of asbestos except radioactive, lodges in lung tissue never to come out. At least an irritation. I wonder if these little glass houses prevent any of the radiation from escaping. Probably not.

    Also probably why Hanford's sand/glass encapsulation will not work. As the glass degrades into dust, it is a danger if released into the environment.

    • Arnold gunderson took vast control samples from the region. Why was this information concealed from the general public for so long;

      Where are the satellite feed / records;
      Was there an aetificial radiation belt?
      Were these the same particles we were breathing daily in seattle as reported by portblogger?
      Does this glass fragmentation explain the constant nose bleeds following the incident on the west coast.
      Is this only a factor of concrete intergration; or are these particles formed naturally with environmental factors?

          I concur on Gundersen. He braved going to Tokyo, as well as the mountains around Fukushima, knowing the dangers. He's not perfect, but he's still a hero. He's older, he had to make a 180-turn from all his training, and he's one of the very FEW scientists willing to look this in the face at all. Give him a ton of credit!

    Severe damage and disruption of tissue in the lungs are associated with exposure to these types of nuclear particles. The most relevant lung experiment is Bair’s Pu 23902 inhalation study with beagles. Twenty of the 21 dogs that survived more than 1600 days post exposure had lung cancer.

    The government recommends that the maximum permissible lung particle burden for members of the public be 0.2 hot particles, and the average lung burden for members of the public be 0.07 hot particles, a factor of 3 less than the maximum.

  • In March 2013, I was sent a resin encapsulated sample of black fungus like material, for testing. It reportedly came from somewhere in the Minamisoma area of Japan. This fungus like material started growing on the concrete and rock surfaces in Japan, after the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe. It appeared to be bio-accumulating Cesium.

    For those of you who have not looked at a chart like this before, the position of the peaks in the chart indicate which isotopes are present. I placed a pen tip next to a photo of the sample, to give people a clear idea of just how small the sample was. The black sample material only filled up around two thirds of this small sample container.,

    Full report here.

    Everyone is welcome to copy the test chart below, and make use of it where ever you like.

    The chart also has information on how much more radioactive Cesium is by weight than Potassium. Potassium is found in all living thinks including
    Bananas.

    Cesium is an artificial substance that is chemically poisonous as well as
    radioactive. If ingested it tends to concentrate in hot spots in the body, and this causes a lot of cellular damage.

    Nuclear Reactor 'Core Catcher'

    .. A core catcher with a sacrificial material could be placed at the bottom of the nuclear reactor. … is to dilute the (U, Pu)O 2 molten fuel in case of a hypothetical core meltdown accident.

    …Its role is to dilute the (U, Pu) O 2 molten fuel in case of a hypothetical core meltdown accident.

    A nuclear reactor core catcher is described for containing debris resulting from an accident causing core meltdown and which incorporates a method of cooling the debris by the circulation of a liquid coolant. (U.K.)

    A special dissolution glass made of lead oxide (PbO) and boron oxide (B2O3) is placed under the reactor vessel. If molten core debris is released onto the glass, the following sequence happens: (1) the glass absorbs decay heat as its temperature increases and the glass softens; (2) the core debris dissolves into the molten glass..continued in link

So then now this is just me but 440,000,000,000,000 Bq/kg is that like duck and cover stuff or am I scaremongering . On the brighter side at least they can,t say there is more natural radiation than man made this time in a attempt to blow if off .

    Just think of all the total nuclear complex steam white-out days and nights (far worse than a single nuclear China Syndrome event). So many videos of the steam whiteouts occurring on multiple days in 2011 and even into early 2012. Scores of days. Many hours of video censored that were probably more white-out hours. Those were the toxic aerial release days that inundated central Japan and traveled the jet-stream around the world.

    My colleages at work who viewed the white-out footage on June 10-11, 2011 asked me what it meant. I said: "Japan is toast." Now we know it's just a matter of time before the vascular tissues and organs begin giving out in hundreds of thousands of victims, then a flood into the millions.

    While the official soothing words from the Japanese government was a divine wind blew the poisons east to the amerikajin, in actuality central Japan was hit far worse. They will be coming to grips with the depopulation of many millions of Honshu Japanese.

    The governments of Japan and America will continue to deny the poisoning of their country for years beyond the 2020 Olympics. The population of central Japan is going to shrink by many millions within a single generation. Sayonara Japan!

Think of a fire pit you put logs in :O) K Now think of the fire pit as liquid Uranium it doesn,t need anything but it will consume everything that gets close to it or falls on it and puke it out as fission atoms some people say its pretty like steam at 440,000,000,000,000 Bq/kg is from according to the study's yell at them not me . But its Oh My dead man walkin Stuff hows that homeless problem you use to have Japan .

  • Not just Cesium, but thousands of different radioactive isotopes types spewing out of this monster. Refined uranium was the signal greatest radioactive contaminant by weight. It has an affinity for DNA and is an alpha emitter, so you really need to avoid inhaling or ingesting it!

      "As mentioned above, previous studies have suggested that Cs ions are fixed preferentially at frayed edges of weathered mica. However, our experimental results using FIB indicate that this observation does not apply at Fukushima. One reason maybe that these weathered biotites are so porous (Figure 9a) that the solutions bearing radioactive Cs infiltrated rapidly into the cleaved zones spaces by capillary action."

    Angela,
    Perhaps this is close to the reality:

    The Galactic Federation, if such exists, probably catalog and study developing sentient species throughout the galaxy.
    Probably most of these species die out, victims of their own mistakes.
    Things like pollution, warfare, disease, greed, etc.
    It may be, in fact, quite rare that an emerging planet civilization overcomes these limitations to emerge as a peaceful, sustainable, and green societies that will be welcomed into the Galactic Federation.
    Take a long view of this situation, and relax.
    We humans will either "get it" or die out.
    In the grand scheme of things, on a galactic scale, it matters little which path the human race takes on Earth.
    But, we humans can still make the right choices, and survive our growing pains of pollution and war.
    Stay tuned… 😉

    Shareholders urge utilities to end nuclear power generation

    TOKYO, June 28, Kyodo

    Shareholders urged major utilities Tuesday to abandon nuclear power generation, reflecting safety concerns lingering since the 2011 Fukushima disaster.

    However, all of the anti-nuclear proposals were turned down at shareholders' meetings of the nine power plant operators. The companies, including Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc., operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, are seeking reactivation of their plants.

    At its shareholders' meeting Tuesday, TEPCO's recently revealed instruction not to use the term "core meltdown" in describing the situation at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex in the early days of the crisis drew criticism from shareholders, with company president Naomi Hirose apologizing over the matter.

    "I apologize for causing trouble and anxiety," Hirose said at the meeting.

    Referring to the incident, one shareholder said, "It was a cover-up. I am infuriated. All nuclear reactors should be scrapped."

    Some shareholders of Kyushu Electric Power Co. demanded the utility halt operations of its nuclear reactors after the Nos. 1 and 2 units at its Sendai complex in Kagoshima Prefecture in southwestern Japan were brought back online last year. Its shareholders' meeting Tuesday was the first since the reactors were reactivated. …

      … At Kansai Electric's shareholders' meeting, Kyoto Mayor Daisaku Kadokawa said, "It is time to depart from nuclear power dependency by taking to heart the lessons learned from the nuclear accident at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi plant."

      Among the many shareholders seeking an end to nuclear power generation, some questioned the justification for continuing to rely on nuclear plants, while others voiced concerns over the possibility that the impact of earthquakes may exceed the utilities' estimates.

      A total of 73 proposals were made by shareholders to the nine utilities. In addition to calls to end nuclear power generation, there were also proposals to give up the nuclear fuel cycle in which plutonium is extracted through spent fuel reprocessing, a program pursued by the power industry and the government.

        Utilities reject shareholders' call to abandon nuclear power
        THE ASAHI SHIMBUN
        June 29, 2016

        Japan’s nine major electric power companies shot down renewed proposals calling for them to end their dependence on nuclear energy at their annual shareholders’ meetings on June 28.

        The top executives of each utility again stressed the importance of nuclear power and indicated that they plan to resume such operations at their plants as soon as possible.

        At the Tokyo Electric Power Co. shareholders’ meeting, President Naomi Hirose apologized for his predecessor’s instruction to employees to avoid using the term “meltdown” during the early phases of the March 2011 disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

        “I sincerely apologize for causing concerns,” Hirose said in responding to a question from a shareholder. “I promise that we will never impose silence on our employees under any circumstances.”

        TEPCO described the condition of the Fukushima reactors as suffering less serious "core damage" for two months after the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami crippled the plant. …

        • unincredulous unincredulous

          " “I promise that we will never impose silence on our employees under any circumstances.”"

          How about live streaming internet whistle blower stations all over the place, and a decontamination workers database with public monitoring for retaliation prevention?

          How about all contractors' employees recieve TEPCO benefits for health?

          How about all claims of radiation sickness be entered into the public record? With respect to privacy, of course.

          How about some public web cameras that are useful?

          How about that dead contract worker? He seems silenced to me.

          If refugees live in large doghouses, where are the workers staying?

          State secrets law should state that it does not apply to nuclear workers and nuclear health issues.

          Put your money where your mouth is, Hirose.

    • unincredulous unincredulous

      How about consideration of the toxic material doing the radiating? The nukers want to keep the conversation focused on the radiation, and to compare radiation to bananas.

      The radioactive elements are toxic, and these products will become the element lead when they reach the end of the decay chain.

    Given the following realities like the following list on Planet Earth:
    Failure to locate and map 3 missing nuclear molten cores after 5 years.
    Failure to ban new construction of nuclear plants, and failure to begin decommissioning 400+ nuclear power plants.
    Allowing corporate capitalism to take over governments, diminishing taxation of the wealthy, and taking the teeth out of industrial and corporate regulations.
    Abiding fools like Assad, who wage war against their own people.
    Willingness to detonate bombs in crowded places to disrupt daily life around the planet.
    Willingness to allow fools and mental cases to have arms with which to shoot up peaceful gatherings.
    Allowing wealth to accrue to a few billionaires, rather than using our resources and industrial capacity to meet the needs of all.
    On and on the list goes…

    I would suppose that long lived sentient beings throughout the galaxy wouldn't be willing to lay even odds at this moment, that the humans on planet Earth will arrive at a level of civilization that would allow them to achieve membership in the Galactic Federation during the next 1,000 years. 🙂

      Add to the list:
      When the plume reached the United States, officials failed to keep the kiddies from going outside at recess.
      Scientists avoid studies of radiation that would put their careers in jeapordy.
      Sending our Sec of State to Japan to make a deal to allow unlimited food imports into the USA without radiation testing.

    Blow to south Australian govt: BHP categorically rejects any role in nuclear waste importing

    In another potential blow to the South Australian government, which had pinned the state’s economic future on the original expansion plan, Olympic Dam asset president Jacqui McGill categorically rejected siting a high-level international nuclear waste repository on any land covered by its indenture agreement.

    We’re not a waste repository company, so that’s not in our business model and it’s not in our plans,” she said. BHP had no moral responsibility to manage waste

    Senior BHP executives told The Australian that although lingering effects from the global financial crisis in 2008 were used to publicly justify the 2012 decision by BHP’s board not to proceed with the original expansion plan, the real concern was the effect of the Fukushima disaster on demand for uranium and its price. …

    Researchers Investigate Increased Incidence of Thyroid Cancer in California

    Other potential risk factors such as radiation exposure due to decommissioned nuclear reactors or radon, air pollution, etc., should also be investigated.

    If you notice any news articles talking about cancer rates always use old data. I have yet to see any data on 2012 and up.

    http://www.onclive.com/publications/oncology-live/2016/vol-17-no-14/researchers-investigate-increased-incidence-of-thyroid-cancer-in-california?p=2#sthash.Hh7GoUni.dpuf

    Despite the lack of obvious clustering of advanced cases in any one part of the state, we were surprised to find that almost the entire state of California had such high numbers of patients presenting with advanced disease. The reasons for these proportional differences are not clear, but they warrant further investigations as they have high impact on a patient’s morbidity, mortality, quality of life, medical costs, and treatments required over the course of a lifetime.

  • We Not They Finally

    "This may mean that our ideas of the health implications should be modified“? Well, they can "modify" that right away. Just get hold of the health stats from 2011-present. Oh, I forgot. They FIRE doctors who write that radiation has ANYTHING to do with illnesses in Japan. Then they cremate the bodies upon death. I'd say that the whole bureaucratic and corporate infrastructure there can go to hell, but meanwhile untold thousands or millions are going to their graves. I pray there is "a better place" for the deceased innocents. I cannot believe that there would not be. No one deserves this.
