Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima is “worst industrial cataclysm in history of world… As close to hell as I can imagine” — Melted fuel ‘disappeared’ — Contamination will go on for hundreds of thousands of years… “No one knows when it’ll end” — Gov’t perpetrating ongoing cover-up (VIDEO)

Arnie Gundersen, former nuclear engineer, Mar 11, 2017 (emphasis added): The scientific impact of the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi is an ongoing disaster that was never envisioned by the engineers who created and designed these atomic reactors and countries who built them… no country in the world with nuclear power reactors was prepared for the explosive radioactive contamination of Fukushima Daiichi. Over and over, people ask me about what happened inside the plants and what is still happening inside with robots fried by radiation, corium that can’t be found, and massive amounts of radioactivity migrating to sensitive estuaries, aquifers, contaminating all the ground water, and polluting the Pacific Ocean… No one has discovered where the nuclear cores have disappeared to.  The $400,000,000 “ice wall” continues to leak… Moreover, the cover-up continues, with the health effects from radiation being camouflaged as stress related illnesses… I decided to share the photographs I took last year in Japan… these photos cannot adequately convey the scientific and human impact of the worst industrial cataclysm in the history of the world[R]adioactive isotopes will be extreme hazards for 250,000 years, of course no one knows when it will end.

BBC Newsday interview with nuclear engineer Arnie Gundersen, Feb 28, 2017: “As they get in [the containment vessel at Fukushima Daiichi Unit 2], they’re finding that combination of hot steam — these are not just radioactive chemicals, but it’s a toxic mix of chemicals that are going to react with the steel. So there’s rust and hunks of nuclear fuel lying around, and steam, and it’s raining all the time because of the condensation. I think it’s about as close to hell as I could imagine.”

Arjun Makhijani, nuclear engineer, Feb 17, 2017: Yes, so the bottom of the reactor under the reactor there is a grating and then under the grating there’s the concrete floor, and what this robot discovered… the grating was deformed and broken. So, now it appears that some of the molten fuel may have gone through the grating… [H]igh radiation turns into heat, so the whole environment around the molten fuel is thermally very hot, and so whether it is going through the concrete, whether it is under the concrete, I don’t know that we have a good grip on that issue… Fukushima is possibly the longest running, continuous industrial disaster in history. It has not stopped because the risks are still there.

    "…He also added that in Japan, people see nuclear power plant sites and urban centers that consume the electricity they generate, but forget about the sacrifice, such as that endured by uranium mining communities, which go beyond national borders.

    Thus, Takahashi’s claim that nuclear power entails a “sacrificial system” has implications far beyond Japan.9 For example, on the issue of nuclear waste, both Japan and the US have been considering Mongolia, though it is most likely that domestic rural regions will end up providing repository sites in the case of Japan.10 Moreover, Civil Nuclear Pacts with Turkey and the UAE passed in April 2014, with the LDP, Komeito and the DPJ members voting in favor. The bill allows Japan to export its nuclear technology to Turkey and UAE, facilitating further building of nuclear power plants in these countries. 11
    The Sacrificial System
    Takahashi’s interest in the notion of sacrifice (gisei) was precipitated by his examination of the Yasukuni Shrine, which, since the nineteenth century, has honored the souls of those construed as having died on behalf of the nation.12 …"

      …Since the accused were absent from the Tribunal, the lawyer acting as amicus curiae (someone not party to the proceedings who offers information and opinions to assist the court) offered an opening statement purporting to represent all the defendants: “1) Radioactive materials exist in the natural world. Even if the damages described in the indictment had occurred, it would be impossible to trace their cause to the specific radioactive materials released following the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant; 2) radioactive materials emitted into the air constitute ‘res nullius’ (property belonging to no one), meaning that those persons claiming to be victims acquired such material of their own volition; 3) accordingly, even if the damages described in the indictment were incurred, they are unrelated to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.”

        That is the most retarded reasoning I've ever seen.Predicated bullshit logic that to try and absolve.

        If you place a bomb with a timer on it, or I dunno, get harmful substances from someone else, the consequences do seemingly have causative factors. Especially when those "courts" and "corporations" set up convoluted laws and regulations and people are lied to about those substances/supposed utilities and dangers/damage.

        By that same sort of logic, we can absolve drug dealers and users on the street, right? They're only smoking crack.

        Yes, I understand they would claim "but drug use is illegal". Though I'm pretty sure even drug use, on a personal level isn't as malevolent.

        No, if you ask those people if they wanted those nuclear power plants of their own "volition", most of them would say ABSOLUTELY not.

      Um, do we really need more Middle Eastern countries getting on-board the nuclear train? Don't think that's a good strategic idea.

      But the nuclear prostitutes will peddle their wares wherever they can.

      In terms of exportation of arms and technology, there haven't been healthy limits on that, IMO.

      The U.S. State Dept. and Dept. of Commerce used to be a lot more proactive in regulating the export of sensitive technologies.

    TEPCO SENDING HITACHI ROBOT INTO UNIT 1 AT FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI TO EXPLORE PCV BASEMENT AREA
    After robot explores PCV basement, retained water will be extracted and examined to determine nature of floating deposits observed during previous investigation

    TOKYO, March 9?TEPCO Holdings is about to insert a Hitachi-developed robot, "PMORPH," into reactor Unit 1 at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station to explore the basement area around the pedestal as part of the preparatory work for eventual removal of the fuel debris.

    Insertion of the "PMORPH" robot into Unit 1 follows the acquisition of digital images, radiation dose data, and other information in April 2015. http://www.tepco.co.jp/en/nu/fukushima-np/handouts/2015/images/handouts_150430_04-e.pdf. Now, armed with that information, the robot will carry a dosimeter and waterproof camera to measure the distribution of radiation rates in the water that has been retained inside the reactor, specifically around the pedestal opening of the basement area of the Primary Containment Vessel (PCV) to estimate the location and spreading of fuel debris.

    Relatively high levels of radiation more than several hundreds of Sievert per hour may be measured during the investigation due to the proximity to fuel debris expected to exist at the bottom of PCV….

          thanks Vavilu. I wish you would include a graphic explaining the principle. It is not immediately evident how the shift of water from dams creates the amplification of G force.

I mean to say that the theory could be explained first without having to work through the numbers oneself in order to figure out the principle

          Vibration data logging/metallurgy/failure analysis is not going to show much failure due to 'earth movement'.

          Was there some sort of nearby 'event', or do you believe the quake 6000km away in Japan caused the failure. 😉

                      I remember when atomic power was advertised as the new better/cleaner way of producing electricity. Too cheap to meter and all that.

                      Will we ever learn that there is no free lunch in our addiction to energy?

                      Like you said: Mother Earth will not allow us to carry forward this way much longer.

                      Agreed and we do have an addiction to energy in all forms.

                      The 7 billion + humans have benefited greatly from our mastery of energy which is creating scads of personal creature comforts that have allowed us all to prosper and stay out of the harsh elements.

                      The toll for using/creating dirty energy is now effecting the entire planet and all the other species negatively.

                      Change or perish..is the bottom line.

                      The way I see it obe, there is no clean, earth friendly way to produce the energy to power our . . . stuff. Some methods are dirtier than others and some are absolutely horrible.

                      Perhaps we need to learn how to live with less stuff.

                      And you are right. Humans have benefited greatly from our mastery of energy, everything else on this planet, not so much.

                      energy use; most domestic energy is used for heating. South facing windows and thermal mass building can cover this need for the vast majority.

                      Per capita energy use has been declining since the 1970s in the U.S. Still, we use about 3.5x more than people hundreds of years ago. Passive solar (south windows) could largely reduce per capita energy use to historic levels.

                      The main problem…by far, is overpopulation. The historic use of trees for energy was a significant bummer. Global deforestation and sooty pollution resulted which forever changed the face of the planet, ushering in the desertification age.

                      transportation is a major use of energy. Regenerative breaking could recover 1/3 of automobile energy use. Streamlining is a large factor at high speeds.

                      By using solar and wind and proper architecture, the current energy use impact on the ecosphere, per capita, could be reduced to pre industrial levels

      Navilu, have really wondered what you think about the Oroville Dam situation in California.

      Would you please post at the OT, Non-Nuclear Forum area on this?

      Or write to me off-list? HoTaters@hush.com

      Really value your opinion on this. A lot of us downstream from the Dam are sweating bullets hoping we make it through the rainy season, runoff (snow melt) period.

      And it may realistically take YEARS before it's fixed. It quite frankly doesn't look "fix-able" to me.

      IMO they should build the other dam nearby as was originally planned (same watershed, north of the existing project). Then drain Oroville and let it go bye-bye.

      But I doubt they'll do that, it's much too elegant a solution.

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        Problem is, it doesn't look like there is anywhere to build a new spillway at the Oroville Dam complex.

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        And they're not going to spend enough $$ to backfill a giant canyon with shotcrete and rebar. It just doesn't look like it can be repaired. Maybe the emergency spillway can be salvaged, but the main spillway appears to be toast.

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          oroville dam…if they are smart, they will realize that a spillway doesnt have to be a straight chute. The new, made by nature spillway looks better to me, and nearly workable as is. Just needs enough anti erosion stabilization fills. I dont see it compromising the dam structure at this point. The aux overflow is not pretty but can 'easily' be fixed

          • HoTaters HoTaters

            Code, I agree the natural path is likely best. But what's going to prevent erosion? They are typically lined structures. The chute has a lot of fractured rock. There is a horizontal crack which runs along a wide area, looking downward to the left side of the spillway. It's a very significant fracture, and I'd expect a lot of rock to slough off along that fracture, if a large volume of water were to go down that chute.

            In principal I agree, but engineers don't work to design structures such as you describe. So it's not likely it will happen.

            There is a lake finger which protrudes out to the left side of the dam (looking downward). Not sure if it's suitable for another spillway to be built below it. I'm guessing the channel is too narrow. And it's not clear whether or not the right elevations (lake bottom in the area) exist to make building a spillway there feasible. Am guessing the water would travel too fast, with too much force, at high volume through that area. Then again, there wouldn't be as much back pressure from the dam in that area.

            It can be seen in an aerial view of the reservoir, somewhat close up.

            But I'm no dam(n) expert.

            • HoTaters HoTaters

              Engineers are very linear thinkers. And that is literally true in many cases.

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              HoTaters, the force of the water is determined only by the depth of the outlet from the top water level. The spillway is huge, no doubt about it. But they COULD engineer the existing passage into a workable spillway, if they were of a mind to do so. Much engineering study has gone into erosion control methods. Niagara falls is an interesting example (not saying its geologically relevant). American falls is 10,000 cubic feet per second erodes the face 4 inches per year but the falling water is not enough to significantly erode the rocks it falls on.

              If I understand Navilu, all dams destroy the natural ecosystem and as such cant be remedied except by dismantling them.

              I was just reading that the Sahara desert was covered in grass and trees during early Egyptian times. Man is like the proverbial Midas

          • HoTaters HoTaters

            Was thinking this video shows some small bays and inlets where amother spillway might be constructed. Don't know how engineers site spillways. It's normally done somewhere along the slope where the dam face lies. Not inlets or bays. But it doesn't look like they can do enough filling in the chute or canyon to reconstruct a workable spillway at the original site.

            Here's a flyover which shows some of the bays and inlets.

            • AirSepTech AirSepTech

              I agree it is a mess now, they need to get past June or so, everything is 'risky' til then.

              I would not worry much on the fix, they will drill/blast that mess into a workable fix. They may even leave the 'split' halfway down, but I am not a damn hydro engineer.
              They will need to rethink 'how it all works' IMO, the original spec was a max flow of 300,000cf/sec.
              100k did it in, lower flows caused problems as well. I really can't imagine 300k down that thing as built.

              Hopefully the runoff will be low/slow, it has had well over 200k cf/sec. in the past, they really should have built the sister dam. 🙁

    The earthquake vibrations caused the automatic shutdown of 11 power plants around the country, including three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. About 50 minutes later an unprecedented chain of events at this particular power became flooded and stopped cooling, three of the plants’ reactor cores started melting, and radioactive material was released by hydrogen-air explosions and by intentional venting in an attempt to let steam out to release pressure on the reactors..The rest is history.

    The European Community has required each member state to perform an evaluation (a so-called “stress test”) of each nuclear power plant to search for safety vulnerabilities related to the issues emerging from the Fukushima accident.

    During this period, there were 18 reactors in Japan that were between 21 and 30 years old. The mean age of the 40 reactors in the country at this time was 26 years.

    Sept 2016
    Five and a half years after Fukushima, 3 of Japan’s 54 nuclear reactors are operating.

    I have been sending out a WORLD NUCLEAR EMERGENCY ALERT ABOUT THE FUKUSHIMA DISASTER since March 11, 2011. This disaster triggered my long held concerns about nuclear technology and its detrimental impact upon life around the globe. The reaction that it takes to make nuclear happen, splitting the atom in order to boil water – is a silly human trick that happens nowhere else in the universe except here. And now we know why … A dirty source of energy such as coal creates pollution, it is harmful, but nuclear can be the end game for the concept of man surviving on his own in nature, without the aid of technology to make the world hospitable enough for life to go on. The Fukushima disaster has put the concept of man in nature at risk. You can build the best bunker in the universe, but if you can’t grow anything because all of the micro-organisms in the soil are dead, then you are essentially dead.

    I have worked on environmental issues in Ontario, Canada since 1979. In 1983, I worked with friends and relatives to bring people together to form what we believe became the Green Party of Canada. I believe I am the ‘officially unrecognized’ founder of this political party, but have long since parted ways with the party itself. However, I have lived by and remained committed to the founding principles of the Green Party platform,…

    However, I have lived by and remained committed to the founding principles of the Green Party platform, which included no compromise on nuclear.

    “We don’t inherit the earth from our parents we borrow it from our children.” And “Think globally act locally” sayings that the inspired much of the original Green Party platform.

    In the 1980s I was labelled as a professional protester, because I used direct action to close down a toxic land fill site. These actions had a detrimental effect on my career aspirations. I stood for a worthy cause in order to protect ‘the freshest water in the world’, and made people aware of what was underway.

    In 2006, while trying to stop the advance of urban sprawl I presented a plate with a brick on it along with a knife and a fork to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), which makes all of the significant decisions about development in this province. I was warning them that you can’t eat bricks, and that is all that would be left to eat if they didn’t stop the onward surge of housing developments.

    Southern Ontario is under intense development, and beneath row after endless row of cookie cutter housing developments, sits a large percentage of Canada’s best class 1, 2 and 3 farmlands. I have been fighting the battle against the endless growth agenda since 1979, and it has only become more intense as the decades pass.

            Basically, an "expert" would tell people how much something is worth, before their evaluation of that painting. People of course, voted it higher based relative to monetary price.

        The banana plantation owner took pity on the impoverished natives. 'I vow to create jobs' he promised them. The plan was implemented; by imposing an 'investment surcharge' on the workers income from existing banana harvest, he cleared half the island of native coconut palms, bora and ackee fruit, enabling the cultivation of 4000 more acres of bananas, thus creating more worker positions. There was even enough jobs for imported African laborers.

Pooling resources is the way to achieve big projects, but that should be done without imposing usury. Thus many call that communism instead of capitalism. The economic principle of 'profit as much as possible within the Darwinist competition of the marketplace' is arguably what lead to the disuniting of ape-man and mother earth, thus a hope of a new generation that cares more about the future, yet still based in outmoded ideology is improbable.

              Isthmus, its SO important for the public to understand the rhetoric of jobs creation. Are people afraid there isnt enough work, or that they wont have enough to survive and thrive? At one time the two ideas, work and profit, might have been equatable, but those times are long gone with the industrial revolution. Did you hear about the farmer who only fed his sons if they worked around the farm? Right,…he automated everything and his sons starved to death. Contrary to common thought that either we should not automate or that the sons should get other work, the story illustrates the fallacy of jobs creation.

              Baboons spend four hours a day providing for their needs. Similarly for Lions. Other animals spend long hours foraging, but do they feel it is "work"? Is not ape-man proud of his engineering and intelligence? Is it a physical impossibility to achieve sustenance and joy working only as much…or less than a baboon?

              Jobs creation is rhetoric pure and simple. The farmer who automated should have simply fed his sons if they didnt have work. Their interests and industry would have contributed to the farm, …if not in beautiful architecture, gardens or better automation, then in music…or just enjoying surfing and being vibrant additions to the clan. If the third world, or any world people are 'out of work', its simply because some guy or system has deprived them of the natural ability to thrive on a planet billowing with abundance.

            The first 18 months of Bush’s presidency saw unemployment steady at just over 5 percent. But in July 1990 they began a climb that peaked at 7.8 percent in June 1992.

            "Unemployment Rates Under President Clinton

            “Like Johnson, Clinton was in office during a period when the unemployment rate declined steadily for the duration of his presidency, reflecting a strong economy. It started around 7 percent and ended around 4 percent….”

  • Here in eastern Canada no one seems to know about the problem of Fukushima and when the subject is adressed there is a cognitive dissonance taking place to divert the attention on counter information that seem to contredict the assertion of radio active danger.

    No one seems to change their diet the price tag is what makes them decide to buy a product or not.

      Yeah, kinda like trying to tell people "those "smartphones", you know, they probably mean you're an idiot".

      Some part of that equation has to be the smart part right? And if it's the smartphone, guess what you are?

    Just measured beta and gamma with my Radex on my truck air filter, Im in Denver. I couldn't get a reading above 25 microseiverts per hour. The filter has been in a year. The same with my home air filter. I'm very well versed in aloha vs beta vs internal exposure. Just sharing info, which is hard to come by.

    • q Farthington MacMananus

      You're well versed in alpha vs beta vs gamma exposure. Yes yes, frequency is related to relative material shielding.

      How about trying ingesting some plutonium 239 and telling us about how separated/isolated the effects are, that is without mentioning byproducts.

    A reminder that anyone can get rad tests done for free on any filter sent in. First you must contact these people to get a verification/order number, then just send your filter in just as they describe.

    I am waiting for the results of a room air filter sent in 4 days ago. It may be in my inbox. Will post.

      just be aware that when interpreting the danger, you are likely to underestimate it by 30,000% to 100,000%, as shown by Chernobyl epidemiology. In the case of some hot particles, and depending on the amount of non radioactive dust it is contained in, the error could be 10x the above or more

    Former Japanese PM to give talk about Fukushima disaster

    Naoto Kan, former prime minister of Japan, will deliver a public lecture, “The Truth About the Nuclear Disaster in Fukushima and the Future of Renewable Energy,” Tuesday, March 28, at 5 p.m. in Statler Auditorium.

    When Kan took office in June 2010, he supported the use of nuclear power. His position underwent a radical change, however, after a March 2011 earthquake off Japan’s coast triggered a devastating tsunami.

    China consumer rights show exposes cracks in Fukushima food ban

    Online stores, importers caught selling products restricted after nuclear disaster

    BEIJING — A state-owned television broadcaster here revealed Wednesday that products are being sold in China against local restrictions on food imports from Japan since the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.

    http://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Consumers/China-consumer-rights-show-exposes-cracks-in-Fukushima-food-ban

  • Didn't Mr. Kan order that salt water not be used as emergency cooling but the actual operator(cant remember his name he died of cancer that mainstream media reported not radiation related don't know how they can figure that out)ignored order and sent salt water to reactors possibly stopping a worst disaster? In that scenario who's in charge?

    Regarding food any tv dinner that says made in usa only means final product prepared in usa and the rice meat whatever could be sourced from anywhere including Japan.

    The banks run the show the politicians collect bribes and threats the mainstream media does what its told and us you and me wait to see if we will get cancer and the 85 richest people in the world have more wealth then the 3.5 billion poorest https://www.forbes.com/sites/laurashin/2014/01/23/the-85-richest-people-in-the-world-have-as-much-wealth-as-the-3-5-billion-poorest/#41fe4cd71753

    Russia's violation of a nuclear treaty is a direct threat to Europe's security

    Russia has been systematically undermining the security arrangements that peacefully ended the Cold War. This puts Europe in danger
    “The cruise missile system Russia has deployed is particularly dangerous and destabilizing”
    15 March 2017
    “Russia is once again placing Europe in the shadow of a potential nuclear conflict. Last week in testimony before Congress, US military officials confirmed that Russia has taken another step in shredding Europe’s security defenses by covertly deploying a land-based cruise missile capable of targeting the continent with nuclear weapons. Russia’s deployment of this system is in direct violation of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty – and endangers America’s closest allies….”

      Its a miracle of concentrated common sense and maturity for Russia not to be 100% paranoid obsessed with spending every penny and every labour on stuffing themselves to the chin with bombs in a chase to sense some (false) "safety" when dealing and surrounded/being closed in, by disgusting genocidal traitorous mercenaries for the Zionist bankers like Murica and Nato and such..

      And i wish every time there is a inevitable logical response to this systematic treason and violation of domestic/international laws and agreements by the same ole perpetrators..the murderer's of world peace would not have the nerve and wring another story out of it to make the defenders the "bad guy's"..its such a wore out strategy of terorrist's/refugee's/uninhabitable land creating scum hawks..

      In this once beautifull to the eye blossoming unfettered life loving planet now turning toxic on itself on every scale and level imaginable , micro and macro, thanks to the cancer that overwhelmed it in short time (industrial homo fubarus)..a rusty pitchfork sticking out of a rotchild corps would be the last thing resembling "some" strange kind of beauty still related to life..how sick this world we live in must be to consider this a true fact..morally speaking ofcourse..

      Obama did some seriously destabilizing things, too.

      Too much saber rattling, methinks.

      Actually, I think Russia has shown restraint in the face of US provocations.

    Don't remember if someone else posted this link or not but I was glad to read that pathologists do exist to assess fish health and I suppose wildlife in general. Though, fish and wildlife radiation poisoning investigations must be a low priority.

    'American River Nimbus Hatchery Releases 420,000 Steelhead'

    "…Fish health assessments by CDFW [The California Department of Fish and Wildlife] pathologists found the steelhead to be in satisfactory condition and near the average weight for fish their age prior to release. It remains to be seen how the stressors of living in turbid water and enduring some periods of high nitrogen levels will affect the fish.."

    "Between 1945 and 1962, the United States conducted 210 atmospheric nuclear tests over remote sites in New Mexico, Nevada, and both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
    With several cameras to capture each detonation, the tests yielded roughly 10,000 recordings which have since been left to be slowly decay in high-security vaults.
    Now, researchers are working to scan the decomposing films so the footage can be reanalysed and declassified before it’s too late."

    Hey guys, let's remind people. Just after the fukushima isaster (end march/early april 2011), this happened. Still trying to sell that shit (I read a new article about that from a month or two ago). They (peer) actually had to get a court order to get the information out. Sorry if I can't link to that currently.

  • It's been a long tme since posting here…so just in case some new people aren't familiar with the work of

    Arto Lauri, Finnish Nuclear Scientist and 30yrs Finnish Nuclear at Nuclear Power Plants, many credentials…
    Arto is currently posting at his Youtube Channel by his name "arto lauri"

    These are some collections of his work early on, but still very much valuable and the basis to his continued
    Investigations and explanations….

    Hades. http://wyynd.tripod.com/239b.html

    Arto got into all of this when Fukushima blew and this is an attempt at translating his very first interview…
    It's most unusal and we really don't know what he thinks in total detail today. Like all of us, the data is
    ever creeping in, in spite of the pathological lies!
