KTUU, Feb 14, 2017 (emphasis added): Following last year’s massive die-off of Alaskan seabirds, scientists still looking for answers… “Geographically and that it lasted a year, that’s unprecedented, [Kathy Kuletz, a biologist with US Fish & Wildlife Service]… “it’s certainly well over a hundred thousand and it could go many times that.”… “I would say possibly hundreds of thousands were killed… Almost always it’s been starvation… Sea birds are top predators,” [Heather Renner, biologist with Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge] said. “They’re sort of sentinels for our environment. They have definitely let us know that there’s change going on in the ocean ecosystem”… Renner says [the birds had an] exceptionally low birthing season… This reproductive die-off meant a “total failure” of murre reproduction that year… “The reproductive die off is something we’ve never seen in murres before, widespread. The refuge (AMNWR) has been monitoring these colonies for 4 decades and it’s like nothing we’ve ever observed before,” Renner said…

AP, Feb 10, 2017: [T]ens of thousands of common murres… starved and washed ashore on beaches from California to Alaska… “it’s because there’s no fish out there, anywhere, over a very large area,” [John Piatt, biologist for the U.S. Geological Survey] said. To see such effect over two sizeable marine ecosystems is extraordinary, he said… Common murres eat small forage fish [which] were largely absent when the National Marine Fisheries Service conducted surveys in summer 2015… A conservative extrapolation indicates 500,000 or more common murres died, Piatt said. Nearly all were emaciated… “In 2016, we had widespread breeding failure at all of the colonies in the Gulf of Alaska, as well as the Bering Sea,” Renner said. “It was a highly unusual event. Murres don’t fail regularly.”… “They died of starvation because there was no food,” Piatt said. “There was no food because there was no fish.”…

KYUK, Jan 25, 2017: “The birds were underweight to the point of starvation,” [Shannon Atkinson of the University of Alaska Fairbanks] said. The number of starved murres, and the length of their die-off, was something no one had seen before, but murres in the Gulf of Alaska were not the only seabirds to die in large numbers last year. Tufted puffins in the Bering Sea also showed up on beaches in large numbers… Scientists struggled to understand why a bird that spends most of the winter offshore eating fish would fly to the coast to die of starvation on the beach… research showed a link between the starving birds and trawl surveys that came up empty, or with only a few of the forage fish normally eaten by murres… “The main result to take away from this is the catch per unit effort for all of these species was very close to zero, meaning that the forage fish was simply not there,” Atkinson said.

KUCB, Dec 7, 2016: In the past two months, 300 dead puffins have washed up on St. Paul Island, alarming residents who had only seen six carcasses over the last decade… scientists say it could be the sign of a much larger ecosystem problem… [The co-director of St. Paul's Ecosystem Conservation Office said] ‘There are dead puffins everywhere.’… The carcasses came ashore in waves… [Lauren Divine, co-director of St. Paul's Ecosystem Conservation Office] said the extent of the die-off was frightening… “After we opened up the first five, it was very apparent that all of them were emaciated,” she said. “Their muscles were completely atrophied. They had empty stomachs. They had gastrointestinal bleeding, which indicates severe long-term starvation. They were in very, very poor shape… So we started digging into this more,” said Divine. “What is happening? Where is their food?“… [T]he ECO office is also seeing signs of stress in other species. [Divine] said the island’s seabirds laid barely any eggs this season, hunters had a hard time finding sea lions, and crab quotas were cut sharply after a survey showed low numbers.

    • Like the human embryo, embryonic sea life including fish eggs, are hypersensitive to radioactive contamination. These damaged embryoes/eggs don't result in new viable sea life.

      So if the small sea creatures, which have a much shorter life cycle, don't reproduce in large numbers, the larger creatures up the food chain die of starvation and disease.

        • A huge amount of airborne radiation contamination is continually being released from the Fukushima catastrophe site. It has been going on for six years now. This is changing the electrical properties of the upper atmosphere!

          If Krypton-85 continues to increase, changes in such atmospheric processes and properties as atmospheric electric conductivity, ion current, the Earth’s magnetic field, formation of cloud condensation nuclei and 57 aerosols, and frequency of lightning may result and thus disturb the Earth’s heat balance and precipitation patterns."

            • The serious biosphere damage caused by the Fukushima catastrophe is multi dynamic!

              Since Fukushima, more damaging UV is now also reaching the Earths surface. There maybe other contributing elements to this serious UV damage, but the radioactive contamination from Fukushima, the atmospheric bomb testing era, and all the nuclear reactor releases around the world are major contributors. This atmosphere damage means more damaging UV is reaching the earth's surface!

              “In addition, the ozone layer, which protects the surface of the Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation, would be depleted by 40% over many inhabited areas and up to 70% at the poles.”

              Comment:

              This nuclear war study, indicates ozone damage. Fukushima is releasing and has released large amounts of atmospheric radiation, by some estimates equal to thousands of nuclear bombs. I would say Fukushima is not generating as much soot as their simulation. UV levels here can now frequently reach high to extreme levels in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, during spring and summer. During these events it is suggested, if possible, to stay out of the sun, or wear good UV rated sunglasses and protective clothing. This independent testing shows, UV-B was only 5% of the sunshine reaching us, it is now up to 60%.

              • These extreme UV levels would also be damaging plants and animals, plus it also can potentially create virus and plant mutations. There is independent testing, indicating that more damaging UVC is also now reaching the Earth’s surface. (The studies linked below don’t take into account UVC atmospheric penetration.) The large number of Northern hemisphere multiple species die offs that are being reported, are possibly occurring because of a combination of ecosystem bio-accumulation of radioactive isotope contamination, chemical toxins, and from increase UV levels.

                Outside of the radioactive contamination hot spots in Japan, increased oceanic and terrestrial UV radiation levels proportionally may be causing more ecosystem damage than radioactive isotopes surface fallout. The resultant increased levels of UVB and UVC that are now reaching the Earth’s surface are directly damaging individual organisms, and significantly impacting the oceanic and terrestrial food supply.

      Like the human embryo, embryonic sea life including fish eggs, are hypersensitive to radioactive contamination. These damaged embryo's/eggs don't result in new viable sea life….however all those that do are now Cancer proof as shown by Chernobyl event where certain wildlife was found to be alive & thriving even though levels exceed 5000 times above acceptable limit..in fact catfish can be seen thriving in the spent fuel pools at Chernobyl. Off the coast of Japan fish have been found alive with levels 5500 times above the legal food limit.

      With all this Online talk of Fukushima being responsible for the death of the Pacific ocean yet not a single test result to prove radiation has killed anything except for some people's common-sense. FYI..I'm the guy who actually bought 2 geigers in 2011 and travel back & forth across Canada doing fallout readings and when I found Fuku in rain fallout on two occasions people were saying I was nuts but folks assume the Pacific ocean is dead, which it's not otherwise the price of seafood would have sky-rocketed yet it hasn't, secondly we'd be hearing of all the these fishermen now out of work due to lack of fish int he ocean but were not. I'm a common-sense person so I'm now raising funds, halfway there in fact to buy a Gamma spectrometer to do live testing of seafood/marine life along the West Coast as i live 8 minutes front the beach…on Vancouver Island BC, Canada

        …If the Russian company building the proposed eight new nuclear power stations had an accident while transporting nuclear material from Vladivostok to Qatar, for instance, causing extensive damage, the Russian inter-governmental agreement made South Africa liable for what could be “massive” costs.

        “South Africa bears the burden under the indemnity clause. A country making this kind of offer would have to make very special provision for this in its budget,” Unterhalter said.

        Such liability was not even consistent with the Vienna Convention on liability for nuclear damage, he said.

        “So we have gone very far in seeming to court Russia and to say: ‘We will pay and we will indemnify’,” Unterhalter said.

        The court is not being asked to decide on the merits of the Russian nuclear agreement, as this would be beyond its powers. However, the contents are relevant as the court is being asked to decide whether an international agreement of this nature should first have been tabled in Parliament for approval, particularly because of the massive financial implications.

        The litigants argue that tabling the agreement without Parliamentary approval was unlawful as it did not comply with the Constitution and the agreement should be set aside. …

          Nuclear knows no borders. A Russia/US nuclear invasion:

          "…Counsel for Minister of Energy Tina Joematt-Pettersson, who tabled the Russian agreement, argued that it did not need to come before Parliament, nor was there a need to allow the public to make representations. This was because it fitted into the category of agreements between countries that dealt with “technical, administrative or executive” matters, which did not have extra-budgetary consequences.

          Marius Oosthuizen, SC, for the government, argued that the minister’s tabling of it under this category therefore did not contradict constitutional requirements.

          One of the two presiding judges, ED Baartman, commented that a government guideline indicated that international agreements which dealt with minor, everyday issues did not need Parliamentary approval.

          “Are you saying the Russian agreement is a minor, everyday issue?” she asked.

          Oosthuizen replied that the Russian agreement would not constitute something that was high on the South African agenda as it was about co-operation between governments on an executive level.

          The litigants are also asking the court to set aside the minister’s “determinations”, made under the Electricity Regulation Act, that South Africa needed 9600MW of new nuclear power.

          One was made in 2013, where the Department of Energy was the body that would buy the nuclear power, and the other in 2016 that made Eskom the procurer. …

            …“Both are infected with administrative error and neither should survive,” Unterhalter said.

            The court heard submissions on whether the minister’s decisions were administrative in nature – which meant they could be reviewed and set aside – or whether they were policy decisions, which could not be.

            One of the tests in deciding whether a decision was administrative was whether it had consequences and whether it affected anyone.

            Oosthuizen argued the decision to determine that South Africa needed 9600MW of nuclear power had not affected anyone’s rights, but had merely imposed an obligation on the National Energy Regulator or SA (Nersa) which had the statutory duty to issue electricity-generating licences.

            Judge LJ Bozalek said, “You can’t just look at this through the prism of Nersa’s rights. You have to look at the rights of people.”

            Oosthuizen replied, “Yes. But that decision did not affect my electricity bill by one cent.”

            Baartman said, “Not yet.”

            The case has ended. No date was set for judgment.

    The fate and behaviour of radionuclides in the marine environment is determined by the fate and behaviour of the element concerned. For example, if an element is adsorbed to sediment particles, then the radionuclide of that element will behave in the same way.

    The radioactive elements will not be destroyed in the environment and radioactivity will be emitted from whatever compounds are formed with the element. The duration that the energy will be emitted is governed by the half-life of the radionuclide which can range from hours to hundreds of years.

    Mutants-R-Us

    Humanity is degenerating at an accelerating pace, and at some point the number of mutations will become so great that we will no longer be able to produce viable offspring. 

    Despite all of our advanced technology, genetically-related diseases are absolutely exploding. Our bodies are weak and frail, and with each passing generation it is getting even worse. Most people don’t understand this. Most average people on the street just assume that the human race will be able to go on indefinitely.

    But the geneticists that carefully study these things understand this stuff. Each generation is successively becoming more “mutant”, and if given a long enough period of time it would mean our end.

    So no, we are not going to “evolve” into bigger and better creatures. Instead, the human race is steadily breaking down and our time is running out.

    In essence, the blueprint of human life is being systematically destroyed, and there is not a thing we can do to even significantly slow it down. 

    Mutation rates increase in relation to radiation exposure..

    DNA undergoes up to a million damage and repair events per cell per day..

    In school and in the movies, we are taught that mutants are “cool” and that mutations can be a very good thing.

    Maybe it's just me, but the thought of self-mutant-morphing or turning into your own night light don't sound very hip or 'cool'..maybe it's an 'age' thing. ;)

    Court decision expected in Fukushima damages suit

    A district court in eastern Japan will announce its decision Friday on a damages lawsuit filed by evacuees of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident against the state and Tokyo Electric Power Company.

    137 people, mainly evacuees living in Gunma Prefecture, filed the suit with the Maebashi District Court, seeking compensation worth about 13 million dollars. The ruling will be the first damages suit of its kind in Japan.

    The plaintiffs include those who fled evacuation zones and other parts of Fukushima Prefecture after the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. They say they suffered emotional distress after losing their livelihoods. They are seeking about 97,000 dollars each.

    The points of contention include whether the Japanese government and plant operator TEPCO could have foreseen the major tsunami and prevented the damage, as well as whether the compensation TEPCO is paying evacuees is appropriate.

    The plaintiffs claim the tsunami was predictable, citing a 2002 prediction of a massive earthquake by the government's Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion. …

      But the government and TEPCO say many researchers voiced differing views, and an installation of tide embankments based on the prediction would not have prevented the damage.

      The plaintiffs say the compensation they received is insufficient. The government and TEPCO say it is appropriate.

      More than 12,000 people have filed similar suits in 18 prefectures.

    Signs of hope for Fukushima food producers shut out of overseas markets
    JIJI
    MAR 15, 2017

    Import bans on Japan’s fishery and agricultural products are still in place for some countries six years after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. New markets in Southeast Asia, however, are giving some producers signs of hope, according to industry sources.

    Safety concerns over Japanese products remain especially strong in China and other neighboring economies, putting domestic fish and agricultural exporters in a bind.

    Miyagi Prefecture, the largest producer of sea squirts before the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, used to ship about 70 percent of its haul to South Korea.

    In 2013, South Korea halted fish imports from eight prefectures in Japan, including Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima. As a result, Miyagi was forced to dispose of close to 7,600 tons of unsold sea squirts from its farms last year.

    “We were asked to cut prices based on the idea that sea squirts can’t be sold elsewhere,” said Masao Atsumi, 39, who farms sea squirts in Samenoura Bay in Miyagi’s Ishinomaki city.

    While seeking to find new revenue sources, such as sea cucumber fishing, Atsumi said, “We are looking forward to the lifting of the South Korean import ban.”

      and fishery products, according to Japan’s fisheries ministry.

      That number has fallen to 33 countries and regions, of which many have eased regulations and allowed some products that bear certificates of origin.

      Last year, the European Union, known for strict food safety standards, decided to loosen its regulations on food imports from Japan.

      Still China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao, South Korea, Singapore and Russia have kept their markets closed to certain farm and fisheries products from specific regions, continuing bans partly to avoid criticism for taking a weak stance against the country, sources familiar with the situation said.

      The announcement by Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen’s government that it was considering lifting the import ban from four prefectures last November spurred intense opposition from the Kuomintang Party, which had previously been in favor of the ban’s removal when the party was in power.

      “Japanese food products have become a political issue,” a person familiar with Japan-Taiwan relations said.

      Heightened awareness of food safety has also been a factor.

      In China, the memory of infant deaths caused by tainted baby formula in 2008 lingers on, while a larger and wealthier middle class have continued to demand improved food safety and product quality.

        Taiwan was rocked by a scandal in 2014 where substandard cooking oil distributed to many restaurants was discovered to have been recycled from waste oil.

        Southeast Asian countries have emerged as attractive markets for Japanese products owing to fewer political hurdles.

        Fukushima Gov. Masao Uchibori visited Thailand in May last year as part of a campaign to promote peaches grown in his prefecture, home to Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.’s Fukushima No. 1 power plant.

        By working with logistics companies and retailers in the two countries, the prefecture succeeded in lowering local retail prices for Fukushima peaches to 400 baht (¥1,300) for two peaches, down from 1,200 baht. This was accomplished by changing the method of shipping from air to sea, using cutting-edge freezer container technology.

        “Although only wealthy customers used to buy Fukushima peaches, demand for the fruit as a gift has increased,” said an official of Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd.’s Isetan department store in Bangkok.

        Peach exports from Fukushima to Thailand totaled 20 tons in 2016, up about 15 times on the previous year and exceeding 9.9 tons exported just before the disaster to China, which had been the largest importer.

        With shipments of Fukushima peaches expanding to Malaysia and other Southeast Asian countries, officials in the prefecture hope they are finding a way out of the disaster-caused doldrums.

    FILM
    The unintentional causes of ‘abandonment’
    BY KAORI SHOJI
    SPECIAL TO THE JAPAN TIMES
    MAR 15, 2017

    Six years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami devastated the Tohoku region, leaving more than 18,000 people dead or missing, and triggering meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant that has left a deeply embedded mistrust of nuclear power in the Japanese consciousness.

    Fukushima has been the subject of many documentaries and movies since 3/11, with “La Terre Abandonnee” (“Nokosareshi Daichi”) being the latest to join the batch. Written and directed by Belgium’s Gilles Laurent, “La Terre Abandonnee” looks specifically at Tomioka, a village in Fukushima Prefecture that was evacuated because of high radiation levels. Abandoned by its residents, with few returning, it is now populated by just a handful of people, mostly those who feel a sense of loyalty to their ancestral homes and feel that it’s too late to make a fresh start elsewhere. One man even opted to stay in order to look after the animals everyone else left behind — including livestock and, intriguingly, an ostrich.

    Laurent’s focus on these people isn’t simply charged with sympathy, he’s genuinely moved and inspired by their selflessness, resilience and acceptance of fate.

    “The mayor doesn’t come out and say so, but my guess is that Tomioka itself …

      is going to disappear soon,” a woman in her 70s tells the camera crew. “People can’t come back here, there are no jobs. And young people with children, well they’re scared of the radiation levels.”

      Although she admits there is nothing to come back to, the woman and her husband have chosen to remain and they still laugh and smile at the camera as if nothing bad had ever happened to their hometown.

      “La Terre Abandonnee” opened on March 11, the sixth anniversary of the Tohoku earthquake, but the director wasn’t there to see the premiere of his first feature film. Gilles Laurent was a victim of another kind of disaster. The airport and subway terrorist attacks that took place in Brussels last year claimed his life and it was left to his wife, Reiko Udo, in her own grief, to see the project through to completion.

      “It was the least I could do, at the time,” Udo says in an interview before the film was released. “I had never worked in film before and I really had no idea what to do. But I needed to get this documentary out in the world. Not just for Gilles, but everyone involved in the making of the film. The message needed to be heard.”

      It was Udo who decided on the Japanese title: “Nokosareshi Daichi,” which can be translated as “the land that remains.”

      “I know it has a different nuance from Gilles’ original French title, but this is a Japanese story and I didn’t want it to sound negative, as if people had just deserted …

    (From March 1, so old news to some here, i guess)

    TEPCO told it must resubmit papers to pass NRA screening
    THE ASAHI SHIMBUN

    The nation's nuclear watchdog, incensed at more blundering by Tokyo Electric Power Co., ordered it to re-submit documents for the restart of two reactors at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant after checking them again for accuracy.

    The Nuclear Regulation Authority also summoned TEPCO's president to its office and gave him a dressing-down for failing to reveal information that could have compromised safety at the plant.

    The NRA's action Feb. 28 followed revelations in mid-February that a key building at the facility may not be able to withstand anything like the strong earthquake shaking it is supposed to. This fact came to light in 2014 but was not reported to the NRA until last month.

    TEPCO said that the information was not shared within the company, and as a result, was not conveyed to its division in charge of NRA screenings.

    It was the first time for the NRA to summon TEPCO President Naomi Hirose to its office as part of the screening process for the restart of reactors.

    “TEPCO needs to learn from other electric power companies, but its stance is insufficient. As the company lost public trust due to the accident (at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in March 2011), it needs to make much greater efforts than others. But it is not doing so,” said NRA…

      Shunichi Tanaka.

      Hirose acknowledged that TEPCO needs to work harder to regain society's trust, saying, "We are taking that fact seriously.”

      He said TEPCO had shown "insufficient humility and displayed arrogance."

      Hirose stated that the company intends to learn its lesson and will re-submit documents so that the plant passes the screening process.

      To get to that point, the top management of TEPCO will have to check several thousand pages of documents. As drastic changes may have to be made, it is inevitable that the NRA screenings will be prolonged.

      In 2013, TEPCO applied to the NRA for screenings so it can restart the No. 6 and No. 7 reactors at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in Niigata Prefecture.

      The screenings entered the final stage in 2016. But this coincided with big changes in policies over the designs of quake-resistant capabilities of buildings and measures for sea walls to deal with liquefaction.

      Then, this year, it was learned that TEPCO failed to report to the NRA for three consecutive years that a key building, which is expected to serve as an on-site emergency headquarters in the event of a severe accident, may not be able to withstand even half of the assumed strongest seismic shaking.

      The upshot of the series of problems meant that the NRA wasted time for discussions.

      But the NRA is also miffed that TEPCO seems unable to decide its basic policies in a determined manner.

This implies that the nutrients are not being restored properly on the ground, affecting the conditions of development for the plants. In addition, an accumulation of leaves could be exacerbated a potential fuel for a fire in the forests. This scenario is disastrous, since fire can redistribute the radiation out of the exclusion zone.

    Continuous transport of Pacific-derived anthropogenic radionuclides towards the Indian Ocean

    Unusually high concentrations of americium and plutonium have been observed in a sediment core collected from the eastern Lombok Basin between Sumba and Sumbawa Islands in the Indonesian Archipelago. Gamma spectrometry and accelerator mass spectrometry data together with radiometric dating of the core provide a high-resolution record of ongoing deposition of anthropogenic radionuclides. A plutonium signature characteristic of the Pacific Proving Grounds (PPG) dominates in the first two decades after the start of the high yield atmospheric tests in 1950’s. Approximately 40–70% of plutonium at this site in the post 1970 period originates from the PPG. This sediment record of transuranic isotopes deposition over the last 55 years provides evidence for the continuous long-distance transport of particle-reactive radionuclides from the Pacific Ocean towards the Indian Ocean.

    While our ethical traditions know how to deal with homicide and even genocide these traditions collapse entirely when confronted with ecocide and biocide. Today we live in an ethically confusing and contradictory world, a world in which sentiment and brutality exist side by side. At the same time as modern thinkers seek to extend the circle of moral consideration to other animals, humanity inflicts more suffering on more creatures than at any time in history.

    Is this really what we want to do to creation…to drive it to extinction? But extinction is irreversible. Species that go extinct are lost forever. This is not Jurassic Park – we can't bring them back! Over the last century we've participated in something of a binge of unbelievable prosperity. We may have had some intuition that it was a binge and the earth couldn't support it but aside from the easy things, biodegradable detergent or slightly smaller cars, we haven't done very much.

      If you are a marine scientist you need a theory. Fortunately, you only need one, and its apparently the only one; warmer or colder water due to Co2 induced climate change. To test the theory, one of the first things you might look at is daily and seasonal variations in temperature to see what the fish normally endure…and thrive in. So they should look at the average monthly temps here

      https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/dsdt/cwtg/all_meanT.html

      there have ALWAYS been warmer or colder than average temperatures. The trick is put it into context. You cant point to a graph showing warmer than average temps and say its the cause, because there have been untold thousands of warmer than average seasons going back in history. So they take an average of those anomalies and see that the ocean has warmed 0.1 deg. Yes, that may be significant. But the other conclusions seem like pulling rabbits out your lower orifice. look at 2004, or 2010. Did the warm 'anomaly' do something to the fish then causing destruction of the entire chain of life?
