Title: Lessons from Fukushima
Source: Journal Tribune
Author: Tammy Wells
Date: Oct. 1, 2013

An ambassador to an international emergency management organization and a former minister of defense in Japan stopped by the York County Emergency Management Agency Monday [...]

Yuki N. Karakawa, of the Karakawa Foundation and ambassador to the International Association of Emergency Managers, along with Kazuo Aichi, Japan’s defense minister in the 1990s, are both members of the Japan Resilience Initiative. [...]

He said the disaster at Fukushima will be felt in Japan for a long time, and that there will be long-term medical effects – something he claims the country hadn’t put into their planning systems. [...]

He estimated it will take 150 years for decontamination around Fukushima to be complete.

Former York County Emergency Management Agency Director Bob Bohlmann said he’d known Karakawa for 15 years, and that he’s done a lot to spread the word about emergency management globally. [...]

Yuki Karakawa’s presentation to InfraGard (“a partnership between U.S. businesses and the Federal Bureau of Investigation… dedicated to prevent hostile acts against the United States”), Published February 2013 (At 7:30 in): “300 kilometers should be evacuated, but we did not, Japan did not evacuate. […] In some areas, we can find very strange material like europium and so on. Now Self Defense Forces is collecting all materials. Also spent fuel flew because of a second explosion; it’s more like a bomb, exploded and flew like 30 kilometers. So government, or Self Defense, is now collecting all spent fuel pellets.”

  • Yes, Carbon is terrible -too- but uh, really? There is no turning off Nuclear. And probably no turning back at this point.

    This is article is courtesy of @Atomicrod, about Germany's increased coal-use since deciding to "abandon" nuclear power.

    http://canadianenergyissues.com/2013/10/04/germany-electricity-and-the-ipcc-report-a-dire-example-of-what-road-to-not-take/

    "Because the “green” sources are inherently unreliable. You cannot turn them on or off; they just happen when they happen. You build them, lots of them, at huge expense, then cross your fingers and hope they produce power when you need it.

    And, if you are smart, you quietly build electricity generators than can produce electricity on demand. And if for some ideological reason you are not allowed to build generators that can produce power without carbon (i.e. nuclear), then you have absolutely no choice but to build ones that run on combustible fuels.

    Which, in light of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) fifth assessment report, published Monday last, which issued a dire warning on the danger of continuing to dump carbon into the earth’s atmosphere, appears almost irresponsible."

All it is is a source of plutonium for their A-bombs.

              No anne, the problem is that anyone should adhere to any 'faith'. Of course, you're breaking protocol here to talk about religion, so in return, I can rebuff your comment.

              Most problems arise because too many people have 'faith' in a factless system of fear-based repression, dogma, and following invisible friends. It's all fantasy.

              All religion needs to be dropped, it's simply not reality. And I'm very tired of living in a world full of pre-schoolers who think some invisible friend is the answer to everything – when it clearly is not.

              Thanks for the opportunity to write. Oh, and go see a movie – Wizard of Oz is a good place to start.

              Oh, and don't insult me or others by saying our lack of 'faith' is the cause for troubles in the world, things are a lot more complicated then that simplistic, moralistic and unfounded view.

    • Nuclear is DEAD, as in seven feet under, as in rotting corpse, as in bloom is not only faded off the rose, it is so rotten, no one wants it.

      The only people still pushing nuclear are in bed with the global corporations making the stuff they want to sell.

      Only empires of stupid taxpayers are willing to put up with stupid reps, who are also bought off by the same shills promoting nuclear, who are ready and willing to bankrupt the whole nation when just ONE of these goes under.

      If that is not bad enough, they run and hide when one blows up or melts down and as fast as they can, they transfer all of the losses to the taxpayers too…

      Germany is NOT replacing nuclear with coal. That is propaganda. The truth is that the old forces, the owners of the coal plants sabotage the renewables in every possible way and on every level. They refuse to adapt their plants when renewables produce enough energy. Instead they prefer to give the electricity made by coal as a present to our neighbor countries. That is part of their last battle because it makes electricity pricier for us germans and helps to split the people on the way to renewable energy.

      To understand the intentions you have to understand the way the german feed-in compensation for renewable works. That is complicated, and that is why their tactics is so successfull. Most people don`t understand what is going on and just see rising prices for electricity.

      By not adapting the fossil plants the old forces achieve that price for electricity at stock exchange is low, sometimes even negative. So prices should decrease for consumers. Renewables make energy cheaper! BUT that is not the case because in 2010 they influenced politicians to change the feed-in-compensation in a way that it has to compensate for the low stock exchange prices. So it looks like the renewables make electricity pricier, where in actual fact they make them cheaper. The difference goes to the wallets of the fossil plant owners… In addition they exempt much of the industry from paying their part of the feed-in-compensation, resulting in normal people paying even more.

      Just…

    150 years for decontamination is quite overly optimistic. It will be increasingly, even exponentially, worse for at least 250,000 years. And a million years before the contaminated areas are again inhabitable. That's assuming that we shut down every nuclear reactor and never build another.

    However, if not, there will be a catastrophic nuclear accident every 5 years or so to add to the radiation and all the other pollutants "modern" civilization can't live without. Of course, with everyone dead from radiation, it won't matter how long the earth is contaminated. If the elite just understood that their wealth is dependent on having millions of slaves. With everyone dying off, there will be no more wealth for anyone.

        Something that has been bugging me is, while it took the biggest earthquake in 1000 years to cause the disaster at Fukushima, Chernobyl was caused by operator error. OK there was no containment dome at Chernobyl but the point is 'operator error' or even deliberate sabotage can blow these things up. If western nations are turning away from nuclear power ( although the UK seems ready to build more) that is not the case in the Third World and some 2nd tier nations already have them. Think Mexico and Iran. Imagine those two countries trying to cope with a meltdown at their NPP? They don't have the engineering and economic resources of Japan or even an indigenous nuclear industry. Japan had all of that and it was first rate and they still haven't gotten a handle on the situation. Suppose Syria had an operating NPP or Nigeria? Both countries have internal conflicts involving heavily armed Islamic terrorist groups who could be expected to attack or sabotage a NPP and they have not the slightest ability to manage or control an disaster at a NPP. Oh, BTW China is selling NPP to Nigeria.

    Until just recently (31 months ago) running a fuel pool out of water or draining the pool with fuel in it had been untried. Something like that would have been frowned on BIG TIME.

    The experts sorta knew what would happen. 10 out of 10 expert opinions said the fuel would volatilize and under the right conditions, catch fire and melt. Ruling out the possibility of an explosion was impossible.

    Unlike spent rounds of ammunition, one so-called spent fuel rod has the potential to release the heat of millions of tons of coal. The development of current nomenclature has created a desensitization to the dangers involved with these horrible substances.

    What choice does anybody have? They'll just keep railroading their failed technology into the most beautiful communities this earth has ever seen. It was paradise I say.

    "Radioactive silver in seafood caught off Japan. Cadmium risk.
    Posted on October 4, 2013

    Prof. Satoshi Mori has discussed the finding that amounts of radioactive silver (Ag-110m) have exceeded those of radioactive cesium in squid, octopus and crab caught off Fukushima prefecture.

    This is significant because the half-life of Ag-110m is 250 days. The amounts of it should have dropped by 80% since the initial catastrophe in March 2011, yet it is still found in excess of cesium, which in the case of the Cs-134 isotope would have dropped by 50%, and Cs-137, which would have dropped just a tiny bit in that time frame.

    Ag-110m is an activation product, which means it is produced by neutron irradiation of control rod materials, including nonradioactive silver. This implies that fission and criticalities are still going on, which create free neutrons, leading to neutron activation of these materials.

    Radioactive silver levels were found to exceed cesium levels in 62% of marine products in November 2012. The latest tests appear to have been performed in April 2013, and there should have been substantial decay of this isotope since then. But the levels are still high. http://optimalprediction.com/wp/radioactive-silver-in-seafood-caught-off-japan-cadmium-risk/

    Don't feel helpless. Disengage from the system any way you can. Invest in vitamins and healthy food read what is available as far as battling radiation and never ever give up. They don't give a flying fuck about you or yours. They are letting 10 20 or more % of us die a painful cancer death just to keep their bullshit economy in place. Just walk away whatever you can do to not support their economy. Dont listen to those who have resignation bullshit you are owned by"The Matrix" philosophy. You want to live your life based on a Hollywood movie script? Hey do what you want. We should be sitting around a fire, pig on spit homemade wine in barrel, smoking herb playing guitar sexing all day long and not working for the fools who have tricked us.
    Makin Babies. That lifestyle will not impact the eco system like what the "powers that be" propose we need. You me and them all caught in a web of Bullshit. We really don't need their crap. Just walk away.

Even if its buying something used, fixing something instead of replacing. Paying cash under the table for a service or product. Trying is better then giving up. What are you advocating?

    Mark, yes you can be free by doing some of the things you say but that is not the purpose of an educated civilization. The problem is that the mold is broken and its broken based on ownership principles designed by each of our masters and the borders you see all over the world identify clearly these ownership boundaries. You are a Canadian and therefor you are owned by the Canadian Collective you call your government. Each nation is/operates the same…simple concepts really.

    In the video of the lecture this man states a 100% chance of a 9-9.5 earthquake in Tokyo within two years, and a death toll of one million within two weeks, due to inadequate medical facilities. This is evidently without considering Fukushima worsening.

    This is a scenario far worse than any I have ever heard.

      The M198 is the standard towed 155mm howitzer. It weighs 8 tons, and can fire conventional rounds as far as 22.4 kilometers.

      The explosion mentioned must have been huge and one would expect some kind of gun barrel effect to achieve that distance. But even there, no part of the structure is aimed outward at 45 deg. So how is it even possible to have fuel pellets 30 km away? Perhaps they traveled by some other method. They have the military picking them up. Could be a cover story for clandestine nuke works?

        It went miles up and being vaporized some is still circling the globe. I have no doubt that they are finding huge amounts of radioactive dust 18.6 miles away. We are finding it all around the globe as is comes down in the rain and snow and also deposited by the wind.

      • A fuel pellet is about the size of a finger tip. Say 5 to 10 mm vs your 155mm projectile. If you dropped both from a 50 story building which would hit the ground first? The fuel pellet as it is smaller having less wind resistance. A lot of people would say the larger object thinking the heavier object would be faster. 90% of a cyclists effort is overcoming wind resistance. So sure you need this huge charge to propel a 15.5 cm wide projectile 22 km but to send a .5 cm that far would require less energy.

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          Mark due to reynolds number effects the drag on the small pellet is higher than the large one in your example. The large object would reach the ground sooner. Then, you say that the energy required to propel the small one is less than a large projectile. But the projectile is streamlined and has a fraction of the drag of the pellet per mass. So the pellet is in reality a much less efficient projectile. To make a good comparison, two main things should be known; amount of energy per mass and the time it had to accelerate it, thus the barrel effect. The drag can be estimated at around Cd= 1.5 to 1.8 based on frontal area. Then there is the big issue of trajectory. A hand gun might have a range of a little over a mile, but not if it was shot upwards. If there was no gun barrel, the range would be significantly reduced. In the end, a thirty kilometer distance is nearly unbelievable

    Anne: I won't take that bet. Here is another bet I won't take, sadly. Only the people here have the ability to deal with the truth of what is happening. Will that change as more information like this comes out? I bet no. Why are the people here able to deal? I do not know. But I am personally done, after nearly 3 years, trying to make people look at what we here look at everyday. I have come to the sad conclusion that those who refuse to discuss what is being discussed right here right now deserve to be taken by surprise. They have had every chance and chosen to stay blind.

    "Now Self Defense Forces is collecting all materials. Also spent fuel flew because of a second explosion; it’s more like a bomb, exploded and flew like 30 kilometers. So government, or Self Defense, is now collecting all spent fuel pellets.”

    SP: Vaporized Unit 3 nuclear debris rose in the jetstream and has traversed the globe (over 20 circuits to date). Heavier particles flew not quite so far. I think Arnie estimated a mile, maybe 2 kiliometers. Ceramic uranium bullets could not travel 30 km in my opinion. YMMV

    The fuel expelled from Unit 3 had serious impacts on the complex itself because of the enormous localized radiation. Perhaps someday we will get a concise narrative of how the workers bulldozed deadly radioactive hot chunks from the explosion, threw some with cranes into the lagoon (which they later concreted the ocean floor without much explanation), and laid a ground barrier of huge steel plates near the affected drop zone from the Unit 3 blast. Someday the surviving workers will verify how this blast event destroyed central Japan.

    I haven't been posting on here in a while, I reached a point where I no longer felt useful. I have been staying in the loop and trying to get through "real life" of finishing school and watching bayou corne… I have noticed that a lot of the radiation-aware people have been turning on each other a lot more lately. We cannot blame ourselves. We are all watching Fukushima but we are ignoring what's right in our own backyards, too. We should not get caught up in feeling defeated and turning on each other, we should be taking what we know and trying our best to do what we have to do in our own "houses" if you will.

      I agree. I have been struggling with people stonewalling this problem but lately experiencing some coming around, here and there – perhaps from experiencing cancer or being exposed to one or two newsclips that trickle out (even if such articles are carefully packaged to always conclude – 'no immediate risk')..

      I was thinking about how one day, the Berlin wall was torn down by the people – seemingly out of nowhere. This 'fukushima wall' might be brought down overnight just like that, and surprise us. I'm not saying we'll fix fukushima. Just saying that this whole deafening silence, this stonewalling by those around us might come to an end, with awareness gaining momentum.

      • The nuclear industry is DEAD, like zombies. They have no empathy or compassion, or they would not be doing what they are doing. They are literally the walking dead.

        They are after other things, like money, power, fame, awards.

        They keep talking about a renaissance, but instead, the share of nuclear keeps dropping, and will soon fall off a cliff globally.

        To get up to 20% global energy share, they would have to build THOUSANDS of nuke plants, and that is just NOT going to happen.

        So if you hear of a couple here or other being built, do not give up or get disheartened. We are winning.

        We are on the winning side.

        History will reveal everyone for who they really are.

        Just stay in the game and keep fighting, or being, or whatever.

    Please forgive me when I ask some silly questions: After Listening to the numbers Yuki N. Karakawa produced in the video/transcript, I measured the distance between Fukushima and Tokyo and arrived at roughly 197 km. If Yuki N. Karakawa points out that the evacuation zone <i>should have been</i> 300 km. Does that mean that Tokyo with its 13 Million inhabitants <i>should have been</i> evacuated and now, as Tokyo was obviously not evacuated, does this equally mean that > 13 Million people will face a very shortened life expectancy? Furthermore, is the ongoing and perpetual emission of highly carcinogenic substances now limited to a smaller radius, or is Tokyo still under the influence of carcinogenic substances?


    Report comment

      Many people have said right after and since the first explosion that Tokyo should have evacuated. And they still are experiencing even more radiation because of the contaminated groundwater which is growing even more contaminated, the radioactive gasses continually released at Fukushima, the fallout during rain and typhoons, the bioaccumulation in the food. The school children are forced to eat the contaminated food and are not allowed to bring other food from home. Certainly a very different culture. Also nuclear waste is being incinerated all over Japan which is another source of continuing increase of radiation. Also as they dump nuclear waste in the ocean and particularly Tokyo Bay, the ocean spray is also increasing the radioactive contamination for several miles from the shore. If there is a 10.0 earthquake in the Tokyo which is predicted before the end of 2014, a tsunami will bring in all the contamination in the ocean.

    You look at the map if you click the link and the northern border is probably closer to 100km then the 197km you quoted.

    The politicians would not be too eager to evacuate that area although it is on record that then PM Kan considered it. Its a trillion dollar economy who would pay to compensate that?

    Perhaps it should have been evacuated but…. what are you gonna do? Even here in Canada I don't get a warm fuzzy feeling from local or national politicians. Do you?

      That is very, very disturbing. When I measured I did it quasi from the middle of Tokyo, which means that everything east/southeast of Tokyo was really intensely contaminated and areas more west of center must still be extremely unhealthy.
      I do have friends in Japan, some of them living here on the Big Island. For a long time I have looked for an explanation for what is happening to and with the Japanese people. In the end I realized that the Japanese still suffer from a serious 'obedience condition'. Years back I worked for a Japanese company and was amazed how personal needs were subdued to the company 'needs'. Absent the description of my parents and grand parents about obedience under National Socialism in Germany, I have never ever experienced such obedience. The one word that I heard the most was 'Hai'.
      It is this culture of obedience that lead Japan to where it is today and it is the same obedience that will ensure the depopulation of that Nation.
      Therefore, 'civil disobedience is not a choice, it is a mandate'.

      I think that if US were to shut down all their nuclear reactors, it is possible the economy would not collapse. The US is not so dependent on other countries. We see that in WWII attacked on two different power fronts, the Americans did not collapse. However, the US needs to expand their manufacturing base as a matter of national security. And they need to invest in the education of their own citizens, and they need to switch to the green renewables and retire coal, retire nuclear, and retire oil and retire natural gas.

      If the US were to learn the lessons of Chernobyl and TMI and Fukushima and all the other nuclear accidents, they could see that nuclear destroys a country, ruins the IQ, and renders the population infertile, and over burdens the health care system.

      The US can stand alone and needs to throw off all its international masters. Say goodbye to globalization to avoid collapsing with the rest of the world. It needs to use its influence to ban all new and planned nuclear power plants around the world. Just as genocide in Africa can be stopped, so can expansion of nuclear energy.

    So we are finally getting the truth, albeit in a long winded and roundabout way.

    It's time for the Japanese Government to come clean about this disaster and tell their own people and the world the reall news in an unvarnished and truthful manner.

    Until people come to terms with just how bad things are, they will never be able to recover.

    And PLEASE, let's stop this nonsense about the people of Japan panicking.

The quake that hit Kayoto laid waste to all sorts of buildings & yet I look at vedios of after the quake as the tital wave is coming & that's when buildings are washed away, something is not right!

    The comment that said devide the people into groups going after each other is a old trick our own government has used for a long time, like the 2 party system, voting for some one because the have R or D beside their name is playing you againt each other. That's why the federal reserve got in while just a few were in DC because it was Christmas, the charter is up this year & if we acting as one the FR would be gone along with the dbt they put under with their IRS agents!

    The key to proving contamination from Fukushima is in the radioactive isotopes. Isotopes from nuclear reactors are different from naturally occurring isotopes. A Geiger counter only detects radiation, it can not tell you what type of radioactive isotope. For that you need a gamma spectrometer, also known as a multi-channel analyzer. At the gammaspectrometry Yahoo group there are several projects that provide affordable software and hardware for identifying isotopes. Test results are also discussed there. People there are more than happy to test samples sent to them.
