Interview with nuclear expert Arnie Gnndersen of Fairewinds Energy Education, Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox, Sept. 1, 2013 (at 41:40 in): “We’re used to solutions that can be solved in a TV episode. Unfortunately, this is more like a horror movie, where the beast never gets killed. The worst is yet to come for the Pacific […] it’s likely to grow because this plant is still leaking.”  >>> Full broadcast available here

EON (Ecological Options Network) interviews U.S. Military service personnel at San Diego courthouse, published Dec. 20, 2013:

At 9:40 in

Lindsay Cooper, USS Ronald Reagan crew member during 3/11 rescue operations in Japan: You could tell the entire command was concerned because they were trying to do everything possible that they could to take care of us. We couldn’t get any assistance from ships because ships weren’t allowed to come in the area that weren’t already exposed to radiation. No ports would let us in. Japan wouldn’t let us in because we had too much radiation. Guam wouldn’t let us in, Korea [too].

At 13:30 in

Cooper: It got to the point where the water’s contaminated, we’re going to have a lock down, we’re going to go on the opposite side of Japan and try and get away over there. As soon as we got there, our water was still contaminated. So it was just where ever we went, it was an ongoing issue with radiation. We were being chased, literally, by a death sentence.

            The plumbing is the weakpoint of nuclear super carrier whose own fresh water is from desalinated sea water.

            What denial of reality and mismanagement sailed the USS Reagan into thick plume? And took on the radiated sea water? When radiation detectors and nuclear experts are not lacking on ship, in US Navy or in DC…

            How effective was the decontamination of the USS Reagan after the event? and presumably in the carrier's 13+ month Jan 2012-Mar 2013 Docked Planned Incremental Availability (scheduled repair and maintenance) in Puget Sound? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Ronald_Reagan_(CVN-76)

            As for contamination on western side of Japan, the only extra radiation was that which the ship brought with it, what USS Reagan had taken aboard when in the plume on the east.

                  Scuttlebutt has it that nuclear powered vessels have enough spare energy to desalinate all their own fresh water from sea water. "A typical aircraft carrier in the US military uses nuclear power to desalinate 400,000 US gallons (1,500,000 l; 330,000 imp gal) of water per day.[20]" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desalination

                  Most ships store the larger part of their fresh or feed water in tanks, which comes from water sources in port. Various technologies of desalination, distillation, reverse osmosis and even dew collection are used on many ships for part of their drinking water. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evaporator_(marine)
                  Drinking water requires chemical and bacteriological testing. One hopes that radiation testing is being added to the regulations — and not only in marine vessels in the Pacific.

                    yohananh. thanks for the research.
                    Did I need to know? probably not, but the ignorant in the world need to wake up.

                    From your link re desalination: "According to the International Desalination Assoc. in 2009, 14,451 desalination plants operated worldwide."

                    Further on we are told: "In the United States, due to a 2011 court ruling under the Clean Water Act, ocean water intakes are no longer viable without reducing mortality of the life in the ocean, the plankton, fish eggs and fish larvae, by 90%."

                    The Clean Water Act that failed to protect the aquifers that supply the water needs for many American households?

                    Maybe we should hear again how much tritium there is in US waterways?

                    Guess not, after all, it is all just 'bananas!'

                  Wow, thanks for pointing that out. Simply incredible. The entire Pacific will be a Chernobyl like dead zone and much of the United States will see just as bad contamination and disease as Japan. LEAVE. That is about all you can do to protect yourself along with screened and locally sourced food, water, and air. Sad, is there a single place on Earth that isn't toxic anymore? What happened to the new enlightenment? A new start and immediately the past, since it is never dealt with, comes back to murder us. Obama and the entire legislative branches and judicial are all complacent with the murder of millions, same as Japan, and there is no public outrage like Occupy. Where are the priorities? I could care less about money and status when our land that sustains everything is contaminated and poisonous. Don't forget those evil bastards fracking the states. It's time to draw a line in the sand. No more excuses. I don't care you need a job and you have a family because guess what I have a family too and if they are poisoned by anything related to any industrial action, they will feel the same effects.

            • The system is to de-salinate through the demineralizer (and that removes all particulates and a host of mineral/metal compounds. Then it's distilled, re-mineralized (not from what's been removed) and sent to the tanks. These processes won't remove tritium, but that's about all they won't remove (of Fuku concern). There wouldn't have been enough tritium ~75-130 miles out 12-48 hours after the melting began (before and after unit-1 blew, prior to seawater pumping) to be of concern. Big dose issue was the plume.

              I'd want to know what their air filtration system involves, and whether or not they 'battened down the hatches' to limit doses below-decks. Obviously their mission changed once they found themselves in a serious cloud of serious radiation, and reported that to Fleet. I would hope they'd bug outta there quick, but instead they went on out to 150 nautical miles to see if they could find an edge – they didn't. And if they went around Japan to the north instead of south, they were in the plume longer still. And plumes in air behave in known ways – contamination tends to concentrate per air currents over topology (or warm/cold currents at sea), so that 0.6 mr/hr in a cloud of 7.5 times 10 to the minus nine pCi/ml at 150 nautical miles (from FOIAs) wasn't the worst of it. 10,000 CPM particulate (and screaming hot) fallout ~35-50 miles from shore was enough to earn Jaczko's 50-mile warning for U.S. citizens, knowing it was evacuation bad at three times that…

                Correct me if I am wrong but releasing tritium is not difficult, the problem with removing tritium from tritiated water is capturing the tritium after it releases. High concentrations of tritium have to be dealt with properly.

                For filtering dirty water, it depends on small a particle the filters can trap and hold. Plus you must keep replacing the filters as needed.

                Distilling is the best route for creating pure drinking water. I always pull the plug before the gallon tank boils dry and I don't use the drip charcoal filter either. But that is just me.

                Next, someone can explain to me how a carbon based being such as humans assimilates inorganic elements for use in the body when organic elements are needed (carbon attached) i.e. iron pipe filing ingested versus iron found in spinach. Of course, knowing a body can excrete poisons until they reach a toxic level or to much of anything is bad for you.

          No the drank desalinated water. None of the nuclides in the fall out can pass thru the desalination process– it was designed for it.

          If the water was contaminated it was post-desalination.

              “…Tritium (3H) releases ionizing radiation in the form of a beta particle.
              • Tritium is a byproduct of nuclear power reactors, which can release thousands of curies
              or more of tritium every year.
              • Tritium has a half-life of 12.3 years.
              “This means it will be dangerous for at least 120
              years, since the hazardous life of a radioactive isotope is ten to twenty times its half-
              life.
              • No economically feasible technology exists that can remove tritium from a reactor’s waste water that is released to the river, lake, or ocean that provides the reactor’s cooling water. And no economically feasible technology exists to remove tritium from the reactor’s gaseous and steam releases to the air.
              Therefore, every nuclear reactor releases tritium as a part of its routine operation and not just as the result of accidental leaks or spills.
              • No monitor exists that can detect or record the true amounts of tritium in the continuous flow of waste cooling water released, or in the amounts vented to the atmosphere.
              Therefore, no one really knows how much tritium is released every year…”

    It may just be the unicorns dancing in my brain but it seems weird that Obama would take his family to Hawaii with the ever increasing radiation building up over there. There is reportedly some ocean plume coming to the west coast in a few months

    Ocean life has died there but supposedly the really high radiated water is coming soon so that would make Hawaii already more affected than the west coast. If I had young growing children, I wouldn't take them to a place like that. I know that has been his home but he must know they will be receiving higher doses than staying in Washington or going somewhere else on the mainland.

    It just seems weird to me.

    The Reagan's crew under the Fukushima Death Star is no accident to those familiar with other radiation experiments conducted on military personnel. From the Nevada desert tests to Hiroshima, Nagasaki and beyond, soldiers have always been used to gauge how radiation affects humans. The use of "depleted" uranium munitions in Afghanistan, Iran and elsewhere is a for-profit industry built around disposing of reactor spent fuel rods, a practice which has damaged entire regions of people including US soldiers.

    With nearly 450 nuclear reactors in operation across the planet (and more planned), every day brings us one step closer to a contaminated, barren, uninhabitable world. And this is in addition to fluoridation, chemtrails, GMOs, mercury, and poisonous chemicals in everything we eat, drink and breathe. Someone, or something somewhere has given the order, "kill them all." Our future seems to be extermination of all life on Planet Earth.

    Governments tend to sacrifice whomever to maintain their grip on power, usually doing the errands of the oligarchy who operate behind the scenes. There are those who believe the American Revolution was fought over tea. It was fought so that we could have our own currency and credit system based on sovereign credit rather than upon the Bank of England. The Fed ended all this 100 years ago.

    My relatives landed here in 1638 and fought in that Revolutionary war. Today, we are back under the thumb of the bankers who themselves have nukes. Einstein did NOT invent the idea of nuclear power. A German did. Enstein had a banker carry the message to FDR. Hitler knew not to use a nuke in Europe. He allowed the Brits to evacuate Dunnkirk.

    We are not told that Pearl Harbor was planned in 1920!

        Ok, so here I am thinking again. The founding fathers of the USA wrote the US Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. My "fathers" being my parents and their generation fought in World War 2. One of the good things that came out of that war was the Geneva Convention rules. I remember a few years back the far right in this country was all bent out of shape over the International Criminal Court having jurisdiction over this country. That was before 9/11/01.

        Read here: http://www.consortiumnews.com/2006/112106b.html

        It seems that the ICC and the European Union have been building on the Geneva Conventions that the US Senate ratified and the president at the time has signed. They are building support for things like our 4th Amendment in the bill of rights. It seems that the USA is going in the direction of an authoritarian regime, while the EU is building on the lessons we fought hard to learn. And this Homeland Security guy, Chertoff is all against our rights.
        … It seems that the criminals are always finding a place to run. Europe makes laws and abides by international law to avoid the prospect of war, which they have suffered from enough. But War is profitable, and the war makers are running out of third world "uncivilized" (unwise to the methods of the colonists) countries to attack. Maybe that's why the war makers are controlling the press. Maybe they do mean to make war on US citizens. Ya think these psychos will ever stop? Doubt it. We are eating our own. Fuku…

          I think that as the world's criminals run out of out-of-the-way places to hide, that they are hiding in plain sight. I think it is going to get worse.

          Oh, BTW Chertoff holds dual citizenship. US and Israel. I'm not anti-semitic, anti-Israel, or anything like that, but it's the dual citizenship thing that seems to bug me. He was put into office by the "W" so I guess rules didn't need to be followed…

      @Seeker: removal of most-all rad-toxins, from water, can only be achieved through distillation processes. Unfortunately, Tritium cannot be removed through distillation. Such contamination requires leaving the water exposed to the ambient atmosphere for an extended period, which allows the Tritium to eventually evaporate from the bulk of the water. I'm not sure but I think it requires about three months to out-gas from the water…

        In my distiller, tiny hole at the highest point, the pressurized inlet of the condensor allow lighter-than-air trapped gases, like hydrogen and tritium, to escape quickly, limiting the distilled water's exposure to the tritium gas inside the condensor tubing to prevent its buildup, my distiller tests cannot detect dissolved tritium radiation above the current elevated background levels in my distiller's product. Distillable products, such as benzene, etc., are trapped by a 6" column of activated carbon sold in the fish tank department of any WalMart in 16oz, lifetime supply, bottles. A glass chef's baster with the rubber bulb removed and a fine paper filter confining the carbon granules to the baster tube is the cheap carbon filter.

        The inlet to the distiller's condensor is at the highest point in the distiller. A tiny hole at this top point allows a tiny bit of the gas from the boiler to escape where the condensor fan blows it away before any water condenses. Any light gas, like hydrogen trapped in the decending tubing towards the collector, exists this hole as it is lighter than air. We don't run the distiller in the house since its installation.

      Just wanted you to know about tritium – heavy hydrogen in the water molecule – and your right – it can't be removed from water – and just so you know – it behaves like a metal – because it is a metal – yes chemically hydrogen – the wonderful gas we breath – is considered a metal – just look at a periodic chart and you will see it on the far left above all the other metals. Tritium is dangerous if it is in vapor and you breath it or drink it. For those whose water supplies come from reservoir – where it can rain out into the water system – it cannot be filtered out on the way to your house. Tritium in the ocean will evaporate just like ordinary water and rain out into surface waters tapped for water supplies. It's is an alpha source – so on your skin won't do much but internally any alpha source is bad. Hydrogen is included in the activity series of metals as well – and water can react with other ions in the environment and be incorporated into things we eat – like vegetables. But lets keep concentrating on cesium – and forget hiring anyone smart enough to teach the kids anything about nuclear chemistry. We don't want them to be too smart.

      Seeker – that was sarcasm – meaning big worries!

      I hope to listen to Shimatsu tonight. He knows his people better than I. Sorry to confuse you by saying "No worries…Not!" That means BIG WORRIES.

      Warriors care about glory too often. The trick is to live well, not die foolishly. Life is precious and should not be wasted on stupid ideas.

    Seeker, I think they have created a filter that can be added to the RO system to remove the radiation.

    Google radiation water filters… :)

    Tritium is going to be difficult to filter out…

    Take the Red Pill. Lets see if Congress has collectively enough testicles to award these Navy members the Medal of Honor for attempting to help the Japanese. They were in harm's way. I bet you will hear nothing of it, and they will instead try to sweep these servicemen under the carpet, out of sight out of mind. "Oh, they've got PTSD" "They probably got cancer from drinking the Flouride", "Well, you know it just might be the contrails." Or, my favorite quote from Zero, "Well, they volunteered for the military—what did they expect?" (paraphrased-I don't speak Liar) sorry.

    Uh, boy . . . there goes ole' slip-n-fall Cooper spouting off again. It gets about 10x worse every time she opens her mouth to the MSM. Next thing you know the Gipper's reactor melted down b/c it caught a cold from Daiichi.

    SnF Cooper: Japan wouldn’t let us in because we had too much radiation. Guam wouldn’t let us in, Korea [too].

    How could she possibly know that as a swabbie? Did the executive staff keep her briefed? Guam is a US territory fer cris sake, I've been stationed there. If the US excluded the Gipper from Guam, why the hell shouldn't SoKo and Japan exclude it too?

    Is she the same source for the iodine for officers only BS? How could any enlisted know who was getting I — how could any officer know for that matter.

    SnF Cooper: So it was just where ever we went, it was an ongoing issue with radiation. . .

    , , , and so that's why now my zits glow in the dark, my nose drips green goo, my baby poops its pants, and I'm an emotional mess — and [bonus points coming] why somebody should be compensating me.

    Check out:

    http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/12/22/341256/record-radiation-at-fukushima-detected/

    The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) says it has detected record levels of radiation at the Japanese Fukushima nuclear power plant’s Reactor 2.

    TEPCO, the operator of crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, said on Saturday that it found a record 1.9 million becquerels per liter of radioactive substances at the damaged reactor.

    The company added that the latest examination of groundwater around Reactor 4 has raised concerns about another leak at the site.

    The analysis of water samples taken from 25 meters beneath Reactor 4’s well has shown that there is radioactivity in the groundwater.

    Nuclear radiation exposure can cause serious health problems. The first signs of nuclear radiation exposure are nausea and vomiting.

    It can increase the probability of developing some other diseases, mainly cancer, tumors, and genetic disorders.

    TEPCO has struggled to control the leaks at the Fukushima nuclear power plant since March 2011, but a massive amount of contaminated water has still leaked into the Pacific Ocean.

    The Fukushima plant has leaked radiation into air, soil and the Pacific Ocean ever since it was hit by a nine-magnitude earthquake and a devastating tsunami on March 11, 2011.

    The tremor triggered a nuclear crisis by knocking out power to cooling systems and the reactor meltdowns at the nuclear power plant on Japan's northeast coast.

    More than…

    This is STRANGE: soon after 3/11 I researched and found that neither filters nor distillation were as effective as RO in removing rad.

    Our area's water is so bad in other ways they have RO water dispensers in town, so I bring it home in large jugs.

    But now I read that RO won't touch tritium.

    Good will to all here.

      Tiza, nice link, thank you for sharing.

      Not diminish or marginalize you comments or link…
      not at all surprised by the facts portrayed in it.

      *My only surprise is that the numbers are or appear
      to be low(ish) relative to the actual scope of
      exponential ecological damage brought
      about by this HORRIBLE SCIENCE
      over it't life cycle…

      I have learned to use "funny math"
      when attempting to reason
      the FUKUshima mess.

    Despite all the mountains of evidence showing how very little the "leaders" of this dying republic care about we "common folk" who bleed, murder, die for "mom and apple pie" there simply is always an abundance of "patriots" ready to do their bidding.
    Since the crooked draft has been, (so far), done away with, they all stepped forward on their own. Therefore, I have absolutely no sympathy for them other than sympathy over their refusal to see things as they are;
    In the end, we'll all pay for their pure arrogance/evil so if it makes "our boys" feel better? Hey lads! "Cowboy up!"
