Fukushima melt-down worse than Chernobyl, Voice of Russia, May 24, 2011:

The situation at the quake-hit Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan appears to have fit into the worst predicted scenario. [...]

Certainly, in the first hours after the tragedy happened the operators were too shocked to unveil any details to the public. However, things did not get clearer with time. Deputy Director at the Russian Institute for Nuclear Engineering, Chernobyl clean-up worker Igor Ostretsov commented on the situation in an interview with the VOR…

“The Fukushima disaster has proved that nuclear industry should be controlled only by the state and not by private companies. The outcome of this tragedy has turned even worse than it was in Chernobyl. Graphite which was part of the reactor`s core, burnt out and vanished in the atmosphere. But at Fukushima the reactor`s core melted.” [...]

    I posted this once before but I think that you can see from the look on Kan’s face, that he knew (and so did probably ALL of the other World Leaders,) on March 15, that it was all over.

    What still gets to me is the absolute lack of planning, both before and after the accidents, in comparison to Chernobyl. The Soviets couldn’t just leave the thing alone like Japan is doing because it was beginning to contaminate Western Europe. What the liquidators did was incredibly risky and at great personal sacrifice but very much necessary to bring the atmospheric releases under control. I’m not advocating sending people in unaware of the risk or anything. But I believe it is going to take an army of volunteers to do the work and minimize exposure. Relying on TEPCO and other nuclear workers just isn’t going to cut it. Just to clean up the site of radioactive debris might need a hundred people working just for a few minutes in the hot zone. Entombment or some kind of cover like the sarcophagus might take thousands more. But it is a sacrifice that needs to be made, both for Japan and the rest of the world. Unfortunately, nothing will be done as long as a company is in charge. Time for the government/military to take over.

  • ****Chernobyl radioactive contamination is
    both dynamic and long term. The dynamic
    is delineated as follows: First is the natural
    disintegration of radionuclides so that levels
    of radioactive contamination in the first days
    and weeks after the catastrophe were thousands
    of times higher than those recorded 2
    to 3 years later. Second is the active redistribution
    of radionuclides in ecosystems (for details
    see Chapter III). Third is the contamination
    that will exist beyond the foreseeable future—
    not less than 300 years for Cs-137 and Sr-90,
    more than 200,000 years for Pu, and several
    thousands of years for Am-241.
    From the perspective of the 23 years that
    have passed since the Chernobyl catastrophe,
    it is clear that tens ofmillions of people, not only
    in Belarus, Ukraine, andRussia, butworldwide,
    will live under measurable chronic radioactive
    contamination for many decades. Even if the
    level of external irradiation decreases in some
    areas, very serious contamination in the first
    days and weeks after the explosion together
    with decades of additional and changing conditions
    of radioactivity will have an inevitable
    negative impact on public health and nature.****

        It was planned! Lots of people got together and planned this and a good number felt it was a disaster waiting to happen, then it happened. This was not an act of nature. This was a bunch of greedy people throwing caution to the wind and filling their pockets with cash…and a bunch of other people letting them do it. Very much PLANNED!

          You don’t plan tsunamis and you don’t plan earthquakes. You might have a technology to release earth energy but none that will harness and direct it, so you could never predict the outcome. Now, SINCE the accident there has been much planning of how to dump TEPCO stock and who to dump it upon.

    There’s another thing about Chernobyl that the Russians did that the Japanese authorities haven’t done: They evacuated women and children from Kiev, a larger city than Fukushima City if I’m not mistaken. They later “decontaminated” the city, mainly with firehoses. But I do not think even the Soviets sent their children into contaminated schools. 90uSv/hr is too much; like getting a chest x-ray every hour. Japan, when the Soviets did a better job than you are doing now in this respect, then you know you’re doing something wrong.

  • 5. Nonmalignant Diseases after the
    Chernobyl Catastrophe
    Alexey V. Yablokov
    ****This section describes the spectrum and the scale of the nonmalignant diseases that
    have been found among exposed populations. Adverse effects as a result of Chernobyl
    irradiation have been found in every group that has been studied. Brain damage has
    been found in individuals directly exposed—liquidators and those living in the contaminated
    territories, as well as in their offspring. Premature cataracts; tooth and mouth
    abnormalities; and blood, lymphatic, heart, lung, gastrointestinal, urologic, bone, and
    skin diseases afflict and impair people, young and old alike. Endocrine dysfunction,
    particularly thyroid disease, is far more common than might be expected, with some
    1,000 cases of thyroid dysfunction for every case of thyroid cancer, a marked increase
    after the catastrophe. There are genetic damage and birth defects especially in children
    of liquidators and in children born in areas with high levels of radioisotope contamination.
    Immunological abnormalities and increases in viral, bacterial, and parasitic
    diseases are rife among individuals in the heavily contaminated areas. For more
    than 20 years, overall morbidity has remained high in those exposed to the irradiation
    released by Chernobyl. One cannot give credence to the explanation that these
    numbers are due solely to socioeconomic factors. The negative health consequences
    of the catastrophe are amply documented in this chapter and concern millions of
    people.****

  • 5.1.3. Conclusion
    Diseases of blood, blood-forming organs,and the circulatory system are, undoubtedly, major components of the general morbidity of
    inhabitants of the territories contaminated by
    the Chernobyl radiation, including evacuees,
    migrants, and liquidators and their children. In spite of the fact that the general picture of the blood and circulatory systems is still far from complete, it is clear that one of the common reasons for these functional impairments is radioactive destruction of the endothelium, the covering surface of vessels.
    The severe impact of radioactive contamination
    from Chernobyl resulting in increasing morbidity of the blood and circulatory system
    cannot be doubted.

        Democrats don’t like Obama anymore because he’s a corporate puppet, didn’t get us out of useless and expensive foreign wars, and hired rightwing Wall Street bankers to give away enormous amounts of money to huge multinational corporations.

        There’s no difference between what he has done and what Bush 2 would have done.

        People who vote for him will simply be even more afraid of what a Republican would do – pump more money into the military, privatize Social Security and Medicare, etc.

      Please add to your conclusion that the fallout from chernobyl remains only for some weeks spreading 180 t of radioactive materials.
      I don´t know exactly how many tons are stored in the fukushima reactors, but there´s a lot of more and the fallout still continues and it´s getting worser every day.

        I would agree and please people dont say this is antisemite. It has zip to do with that. it is about the leaders, those behind the scenes and in control of everything that is happening on the earth right now, except those things we the people are making happen. To that end, on a local level, county by county, region by region, if there is /would be enough time???? I think the most crucial thing to get in place is hand counted votes tallied by hand on an adding machine by citizen volunteers. In other words our basic power to say yes or no was ripped in the US back in 2004 and its been AWOL since then. Same for most other countries. If we can get back control of the vote maybe maybe…….
