Title: Fukushima Reinforces Worst Fears for Japanese Who Are Anti-Nuclear Power
Source: PBS NewsHour
Date: Aug. 8, 2013

ARJUN MAKHIJANI, engineer specializing in nuclear fusion and president of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research: [...] now they have found strontium-90, which is much more dangerous [than radioactive cesium], at levels that are 30 times more than cesium [See also: 100 times more strontium than cesium in water at Fukushima]. [...] And the unfortunate thing about strontium especially is that it bioaccumulates in algae, it bioaccumulates in fish. It targets the bone, because it’s like calcium. And so this is a problem. We don’t have measurements far out to sea. The Woods Hole Institute has done some surveys. And they were surprised by how much continuing radioactivity they found, but no clear explanation yet. [...]

MAKHIJANI: We actually sent a proposal to Japan two years ago, some colleagues of mine and I, saying you should park a supertanker or a large tanker offshore, and put the water in it, and send it off someplace else so that the water treatment and the water management is not such a huge, constant issue. But…

JEFFREY BROWN, PBS: It sounds like still an ongoing experiment.

MAKHIJANI: Yes. [...]

    strontium will get in the bones and affect the blood. Leukemia for the dolphins. Being sick feels horrible, (even to animals believe it or not). They were warned not to build reactors, now they blow up every 10 or 20 years and cant be contained poisoning all life.

    Theres only so many whales. Expect unusual mortality events to diminish over time, and finally stop altogether.

    Shame on Japan for being whalers. Shame on the pro nuclear for poisoning the ocean

    And the measured value of 30 times less Cesium 137 is how much?

    Ah, there is a hint in the original article: one would have to drink the strontium water for a year to get cancer. I suppose they mean the water in our Coca ColaTM as well?

    So there is still no immediate danger. Worst fear for Anti-Nuclear pussies, a year or more still time enough to get richer for the pro nukers.

      Allow me to elaborate.

      ARJUN MAKHIJANI: Yes.
      Well, you know, they already built this chemical-reinforced wall, and what happened, of course, it's like a dam, so you have water coming in from upstream, above the plant. And then at a certain point, it's going to get — overtop the dam. It's like constant rain coming into a reservoir.

      And so that has been the problem, is those defenses have been breached because there's too much water and not enough wall. And at a certain point that's always going to be the case. It seems to me that there's a risk the same thing will happen with this new wall, because they already had a wall and it didn't work. So, building a new and longer wall would work for some time.

      The other problem is, of course, you need a massive amount of water to freeze that much soil. It would be a mile-long, apparently. If you have a power failure, another major earthquake — they had a power failure a few months ago when a rat ate through a wire — and that would then be very, very problematic, because now you have got so much water behind.

        "IF… you have another major earthquake"? Like why is it that immediately after the last earthquake last weekend, suddenly there were spikes of radiation 50-fold compared to before?? IF they had another earthquake?

        And the seismological ratings are unreliable. Dutchsinse noticed that. That the USGS kept moving their initial readings DOWN. So they say that it was "a strong 6." So people think 6.0 But what if "a strong 6" is really 6.9? But not even that. What if it's in the 7's, like maybe 7.8, but they are saying that it is 6.9?

        Speculative? Well, SOMETHING caused the 50-fold increase in radiation!!! I'm astounded that no one else seems to be talking about it.

        Also understand that the last thing they want to admit is that the new escalation is being caused by an EARTHQUAKE. Because then they could not bring seismologically unfit nuclear plants back on line, as Abe is intent on doing.

        I'd actually be shocked to learn that this new magnification of the catastrophe was NOT caused by that recent earthquake!! Input from anyone else welcome.

      Every isotope attacks specific systems in the human body. Like apparently part of strontium-90 gets converted to yytritium-90 which attacks THE PANCREAS. As of May, 2012, 60% of children UNDER AGE TWELVE in the area already had diabetes!!! That's outlandishly alarming and I imagine that by now it is way, way WORSE. The new escalation alone should be frightful.

      So are there mass training programs in managing diabetes in children? Undoubtedly NOT. Everyone talks about cancer and of course that's a horror story. But untreated diabetes, especially in children (who eat so many sweets)is a killer all its own.

      We have a diabetic in the family, so we were especially interested in researching this; and from what we can tell, the root cause comes from STRONTIUM.

      This is just mass murder. All of Northern Japan should have been evacuated long since.

    Fukushima Decommission Plan:
    1. Locate Missing Melted Fuel: It is of vital importance to map the corium lava tubes, and to confirm the whereabouts of the missing 218 tons of nuclear fuel, don't you think? Use modern drilling techniques to locate and follow Corium Lava Tubes1,2,&3 down to the missing corium. Accomplish this task in 2014.
    2. Stop Groundwater Contamination: An Extended Impermeable Wall and/or the Frozen Wall need to be built to isolate the Fukushima Ruins, surrounding all four reactor buildings with underground walls to stop the flow of groundwater through the Ruins. Accomplish this task by the end of 2015.
    3. End Ocean Contamination: The mouth of the harbor must be sealed with a permanent gate. Accomplish this task in 2014.
    4. End Atmospheric Contamination: Locate melted fuel in the reactor ruins, neutralized with boron and grout to stop the smoke and steam rising from the ruins and from the ground around the plant. Accomplish this task by the end of 2019.
    5. Store Spent Fuel: Put the fuel from SFPs1,2,3,&4, and the Common SFP into permanent dry cask storage. Accomplish this task by 2016, after all fuel at the plant has cooled by at least 5 years, and is ready to go ino Dry Cask Storage.
    6. Fill Reactor Buildings1,2,3&4 with grout. Accomplish this task by the end of 2020.
    7. Treat and Dump Stored Water: All remaining contaminated water stored at the plant should be treated and dumped by the end of 2019.

      TEPCO will push back on these dates, saying there is no way to accomplish these tasks in the allotted time. However, these tasks can–and must–be completed in the allotted time.

      The Japanese Central Government, under pressure from the international community (and from ENEnews. ;) ), must step in to make certain that the expertise and manpower necessary to accomplish a full Fukushima Decommission in a timely manner is available, even if this means taking over the decommission effort from TEPCO.

        Philip, I actually admire your persistence with the likes of 7-point plans. The feasibility seems to be based upon ASSUMPTIONS which no one else seems to be making, but if you are the genius leading the way, I would not even know because I am not an engineer. Meanwhile, far from "pressure" from the international community, there has just been ENABLEMENT and LIES from the international community.

        The reality seems to be that whatever the feasibility of even well-thought-out ideas, there has not been the WILL. Or I guess like they say with psychology, you cannot fix a problem that you do not even admit to having.

        Now at least there are escalating admissions that it is "bleak," "desperate," "overwhelming" and the like. Meaning that likely it has already been pushed PAST "Where there's a will, there's a way." I don't think that they can/will stop this at all by now, though I'd be gratified to be proven wrong.

      I think that there actually is some shifting of rhetoric because the escalation is now so alarming that they are panicked. It just doesn't mean that they can/will DO anything. And their priorities over there are all wrong. People's health and lives always seems to come in last. But at least now they are not spouting so much of "no immediate damage." So we know that it is very very VERY bad.

    ..not just cesium-134/137
    ..not just strontium-90

    when a nuke reactor blows it's hard to find a radioactive isotope that is NOT on the chart..

    just go to goog-images and search for "chart of isotopes"..

    here's one of many:
    http://www.lbl.gov/images/PID/isotope-chart.gif

    Before the meltdowns there was approx 2200 metric tons of nuke-fuel at FukuDai-1..
    ..but, after meltdown the total mass of radio nucleides dramatically increases during the uncontrolled decay process in-situ.

    We must quickly face the fact we are dealing with widespread bio-accumulation and geodynamic concentrating of toxic chemical elements.. these elements will disperse then reconcentrate in remote areas far away from Japan. Just as alluvial gold disperses and reconcentrates in flowing water following the rules of physics, the thousand isotopes in rad-fallout will each take their own path through the troposphere of planet Earth.


    Report comment

  • Heart of the Rose asked why more strontium? I think it has something to do with the filtration equipment that only filters cesium. So I think the coolant circulates through the system and accumulates strontium as only cesium is being filtered. Of course major leaks at melt through points.. Nothing is being done as money is tight in Japan. USA is ignoring all this as Japan is too big to fail. The nuclear industry is too big to fail. Upshot will be increased cancer deaths world wide but that has been happening anyways due to the myriad of pollutants created by our economic system. No complaints so far. Lawsuits? Forgetaboutit. Despite the dire situation, little media or public attention except the relatively few free thinkers who have historically been relatively few. Just sad. Proof the world is run by criminally insane fools.

    Arnie and other scientists seem to know almost exactly the available radioactive poisons inside a spent fuel pools and know enough to fear a release if they were to catch on fire. But when it comes to meltdowns, no one ever speaks of what total radionuclides the melts are capable of producing. Shouldn't be the same or less than what is in a spent fuel pool?

    The actual possible melted fuel assemblies involved are Units 1=400 2=548 3=548(with some MOX). During the explosions, how much of the fuel rods were ejected or vaporized? Less fuel left behind would leave less potential for radioactive fallout at the site.

    If the melted fuel fizzles at anytime, then it would create even more radiation with new decay products. Just how much no one is saying or knows.

    It is abaout power, not about many.
    They are not greedy, nobody is really greedy.

    But most of us are in fear, they could loose their life.
    But what does it mean, when everybody looses his/her life,

    because some say, "it's written in the bible."

    What does the bible mean to us?
    Fortunately today much less than a few centuries before.

    So,

    how can you be greedy, if you own everything?

    The uranium, plutonium, weapons,
    green cotton production, jewels, gold.

    So you think you can escape if you own gold?
    When the price of everything falls, as the price of green cotton goes up, how can you expect gold to be a save heaven?

    It is not at all a save haven. Nor are jewels, arts, houses.
    There is nothing like a safe haven.

    They own it all, and they make the prices,
    like they want them to be.

    So you accept a little interest for your government bond.

    And if they want you to kill anybody,
    you deny it, because you don't want to be a victim
    of depleted uranium.

    This is a multipolar world,
    and until everybody is awakened to accept that,
    we're going to face wars.

    So let's have a indipendent birth control
    and stop wars and environmental and atomic extinction.

    And remember:

    It's not about the green cotton,
    it is about making you believe you've got to do, what they want
    and to control you.

    And the mass media is just about making anybody fear,
    that they will take him out tomorrow.

    Well, if that leads us to a nuclear holocaust,
    I would say, let us oppose them.

    Thank you

    And listen closely,

    if you all pay your rent,
    nobody would suffer from the housing market.

    Many of you would be far better of.

    Houses are only cheap at the lowest point since years.
    Then they may equal the low prices of renting.

    Well and if you only eat fruits, you don't need a doctor
    and if you deny to work for the military,
    there will be no wars.

    Anything I have forgotten?

    If only I could find some sweet Japanese Girls
    singing that cultural heritage of yours for you.
