NHK Transcript, Oct. 24, 2014 (h/t Deep13th Nuclear Waste Info): [TEPCO] says it has found high levels of radioactive cesium in groundwater in the compound. Officials at TEPCO say a recent typhoon may be the cause… TEPCO officials say water taken on Wednesday from a well had 460,000 becquerels of cesium per liter (Bq/l)… another well contained 424,000 becquerels. Officials say those levels are 800 to 900 times the previous peak. The wells are several meters west of the No. 2 reactor… The utility plans to treat the tainted groundwater and discharge it into the ocean, but local people strongly oppose the plan…

NHK, Oct. 24, 2014: High levels of radiation found at Fukushima plant… TEPCO officials say they don’t know what caused the rise. They speculate a recent typhoon may be to blame.

    New Study questions Japanese data underpinning current radiation risk model

    by Christopher Busby
    The results of a study of the health of children and grandchildren of British servicemen stationed at the atomic weapons test sites at Maralinga in Australia and Christmas Island in the Pacific will be published in the open peer-reviewed journal Epidemiology this week. Christopher Busby and Mireille Escande de Messieres conducted a case-control and cohort study of 605 children and 749 grandchildren of members of the British Nuclear Test Veterans Association (BNTVA) and compared congenital defects and cancer incidence with 311 control children and 498 control grandchildren of age-matched individuals. Results showed that, compared with controls:

    There was three times the number (105) of miscarriages in wives of veterans.
    There was 9.7 times adverse congenital conditions (57) in veteran children.
    There was 8.4 times adverse congenital conditions (46) veteran grandchildren.
    These rates were confirmed also by comparison with national EUROCAT data.

    The existence of the same highly statistically significant rate in both generations points to genomic instability as likely cause, a trans-generational genomic switch discovered after Chernobyl and shown in animal studies to affect many generations…

      RogerThat Thank you so much for this! One of the questions I keep asking is how this stuff would be pasted to my Grandson… Now at least someone did a study to prove it. These numbers from Fukushima are beyond my brains comprehention, i can not see the local people of Japan being able to survive this kind of contamination, on a huge scale such as this. If one had gone maybe, but 3? No wonder the ocean is dead. They need to stop using nuclear now!

        This damnable liar needs to be taken out behind the woodshed and taught that it is not wise to lie to humanity and that there are immediate and severe consequences for doing so. When crap like this, such blatant lies, is being spewed upon a public that does not have the factual knowledge base to come to their own independent conclusions, this behavior is nothing short of criminal.
        This dud is lucky he does nt live anywhere near me. I might have to have a little "come to Jesus" session with him. He does great harm to people when he uses the mass media to spew these lies.

    RADIATION-INDUCED EFFECTS IN HUMANS AFTER IN UTERO EXPOSURE: CONCLUSIONS FROM FINDINGS AFTER THE CHERNOBYL ACCIDENT

    INGE SCHMITZ-FEUERHAKE, Department of Physics, University of Bremen, Germany

    “A threshold dose of 100 mSv is assumed for radiation-induced teratogenic effects in publication No. 90 of the ICRP (2003) which is based on the findings in the Japanese A-bomb survivors. A variety of observations about congenital malformations, fetal loss, stillbirths, and infant deaths, as well as Down´s syndrome after the Chernobyl release demand to point out the incompleteness of the Japanese data. Radiation-induced developmental effects by Chernobyl, especially in great distances, are usually denied because of the low values of the estimated human exposures. Biological dosimetry in contaminated regions, however, shows that physical dose estimations lead to considerable underestimations of the true exposure. The assumptions about teratogenic effects by incorporated radionuclides have to be revised.”

      I too am hopeful solutions were found, and also recognise the limitations of operating organisations on limited budgets.

      Admin previously indicated that this is a one person operation. That is becoming a lot of responsibility on 2 shoulders.

      Resources are mobilizing in opposition to the truth being reported on this site, as I'm sure you are aware. Supporters and detractors are still present.

      Thanks Dr. Goodheart and Jinglespots. I hope that more such protests will work in the future. Reporting comments just doesn't seem to work at all. – – It does seem to help to write multiple messages into the Comments Section asking the Admin to intervene. I posted ten times about charging for ability to post and wrote to Admin several times also. Also considered digging back into the archives looking for good messages which contain numerical facts and re-posting them as replies every time the little animal posted. (Giving credit of course). Like how many tons of fuel were in the pools and reactors. That was one of the items in the postings in the very first few days of the website. Have not seen that one posted again recently. – – Maybe it was just coincidence that the postings stopped and we seem to not have animals doing postings. 🙂

        Thank-you for your kind acknowledgement Byron, but I am sure I had nothing to do with any change. I will, though, continue to express my distaste for repulsive posts if I see them. It is not enjoyable reading useless, debased, personal attacks. I am subscribed to this site to learn the truth about nuclear dangers, not to have to endure the repulsive words of fools/bots. I believe that most people who frequent this site and share information are sincerely trying to dispense factual info. People not interested in dispensing the truth on these matters would be a lot happier with their lives if they did something to benefit their fellow-man. On that note, I want to thank everyone who contributes their time and heart to sharing the truth about things nuclear. Have a very nice day everyone:)

      • The wheels of justice sometimes turn slooooowwwwwlllllyyyyy, but turn they do. Whether it is the halls of justice, or karma.. the judges in court, and/or the judge of Nature's forces will eventually win in the long term.

        There is no winning in the fight against Nature.

        Bottom line, the nuclear/carbon/food factory/medical radiation/chemo, and patent drug industries are all in a fight with Nature, and are not working in harmony with it.

        They are paid to fail, and fail again, with huge profits of course.

        I'm hoping we can exercise a little more restraint in our counter-offensives against the trolls. The hateful name-calling and vitriol got to be a bit much over the weekend.

        It's hard not to get angry when the trolls are making such stupid and untruthful comments. It's just blather, blather, blather.

        But please let's not degrade ourselves to their level. Some of the comments returned to the troll were just hateful. Personally don't like reading a lot of profanity.

        Anyway, the point is, please let's not violate our own user policy when we're exasperated and want the trolls to go away.

        That being said, I was pretty disgusted to see another troll was infiltrating and wreaking so much havoc. Let's just please try not to get personal in our counter-offensives, eh?

        Just my two cents' worth.

  • If you want to understand radiation from reactors you have to understand a single atom of man made radiation ingested will cause cancer in about a decade , making it impossible to link back definitively . Man made radiation is deadly because these elements are now ionized and radiated by man and are now man made isotopes . Nothing on the planet is acclimated to them or can live in harmony with it . That is why America is peppered every 50 miles with a nuclear waste holding site . These elements are not created by the sun so nothing on earth has learned to deal with them . A suns chain reaction is completely different than a chain reaction at a nuclear power plant . This is why they have nuclear waste sites and laws about when how and who can have access to it . The nuclear waste used in medical chemo treatments results in only a lousy insignificant 2 percent of cancer patience seeing a increase of life expectancy . The homeless in Japan are left to die of radiation sickness abandoned forgotten discarded like trash after working at the creepy Fukushima military industrial directed energy weapons Isotopes production complex aka nuclear power plant . The reason I say this is because MOX Fuel is 2 million times worst than any nuclear power plants fuel . They do not need that kind of fuel to make power , power is a byproduct . They need the isotopes for directed energy weapons only . I send my hugs love and admiration from the frayed to those who seek a way forward .

            in the meantime can I interest anyone in 3 boxes of Aldi's grocery store bought fish filet's & shrimp? My darned wife(I can't help but love her)had a "good" day about a week or so ago and insisted on doing the shopping. It seemed like it went okay & all,I mean anythings better than coming into the store to find her on the electric cart having a syncope(fainting attack!)that preded a seizure that left her semi-conscious,going in a circle in a super WalMart knocking down displays & merchandise while employees were trying to get to the damned kill switch & het her some help??!! It was bad,sad & she was embarrassed when she came out of it but those who know her well including myself had to laugh at the event and the mess she made was classic Sandy!! 🙂 So what does she do on a GOOD day?-buys a ton of Pacific Seafood that came from a Chines fishing company,Sea Queen of "trawler-caught,wild, FAO 61 Alaska Pollock & popcorn shrimp"!! I looked up Pacific fishing area 61 and confirmed she couldn't have picked a worse way to waste our meager grocery budget. lol… I'm trying to keep a decent day intact despite sitting at the hospital where I'll be again tomorrow and then Thursday,Saturday & again 3 days next week unless they keep her today & send her over to inpatient[?]! Sorry if I'm OT. I'm running on battery power & it's running low pretty quick here…

              Man,this hospital routine's depressing though…you'd never guess it by seeing how many people know me here from the staff in every department except pediatrics! If things were different & wifey didn't need my undivided attention I could get a job here in a minute!! Ever since oncology got so damned busy & there's no room,extra chairs for guests to sit with chemo patients during their infusions, I've been volunteering my idle time @ "Gilda's Corner"
              , an arts & crafts,etc. activity center in the foyer outside the infusion center where people get to make little leather crafts projects & misc. stuff or just play games with the kids. Anyone who works in the nuke industry who could SEE what's going on for themselves must be mighty glad that their benefactors consistently deny their industry's responsibility for all these cases & faces of their family members fraught with the pain & strain cancers of their loved ones brings to their world! I don't know how the personnel here can do what they do day in & day out??!!

    • Jinglepots Jinglepots

      Clearly, because our scientists are not out there documenting what has been going on in the Pacific Ocean (to any meaningful degree) someone has to do it. Dana, although normally confined to a wheelchair, is out there in, sometimes, very nasty weather, forging ahead with his purpose. His photographs are extremely valuable forms of documentation as to the condition of the Pacific ocean on the Canadian coast. I particularly liked the video below, which shows the lengths he and his team are willing to go to in order to complete their goals.

      Dana, thank you for getting out there where the rubber meets the road and making a difference. You have come a long way since you started making your videos. Good work. You're helping raise awareness, and that's very important.

      It was great hearing your point of view, also, since you were a professional diver for so long.

      Someone posted pictures of rocks on an Oregon beach here recently. The rocks looked just as barren as what you saw in British Columbia.

      I'm from California. Where my family visited the coast, the tide pools were teeming with life. Not seeing rocks completely covered in sea stars, sea anenomes, mussels, kelp, barnacles, abalone, and other creatures is alien to me.

      Thanks for joining the discussion here.

    • HoTaters HoTaters

      Sorry you're getting so much flack, Dana. Zoe's a very seaworthy dog. Arf! Great picture of your dog, and great update. Am just watching your video where you discussed getting 50 "thumbs down" in a couple of hours.

      The nuclear denialists will do anything to derail the "Fukushima Truthers," it seems.

      • HoTaters HoTaters

        BTW, I have a suggestion. Since I for one am not familiar with how the coastline in your area should look, perhaps you could explain to your audience what they are supposed to be seeing.

        If you could explain how an area has looked, historically, vs. how it appears now, that would be helpful.

        You mentioned in one of the videos the rocks were naked and devoid of life. I had to look very closely to see where the kelp line lay previously. In other words, it was difficult to see where the kelp line, seen at low tide, should have been.

        It will be much harder for the naysayers to refute what you're saying if you could provide an historical context. By giving context, you'll also make it possible for others to watch your videos and confirm your observations (local people, those familiar with the area).

        Thanks again. Good work. That Zodiac is one stable vessel. You charged through those whitecaps and big swells like they weren't even there. It's pretty obvious you have spent a lot of time on the sea and know of whence you speak.

        HT

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          And the best part of all (as a dog owner) is Zoe does not get seasick. Hold the Dramamine, she's fine.

        • HoTaters HoTaters

          Dana, you might also mention (if the BC coast is like California), there is usually so much kelp on the rock it's almost impossible to get out of a boat and walk.

          I remember how utterly treacherous it was trying to get my footing walking around in the tide pools.

          And you are correct, the rocks should be completely covered in anenomes of all sizes, below the high tide line.

          The rocks are strangely denuded, and if anyone has ever walked a tidal zone around rocks, they'll know your statements are true. The sealife is just gone.

          • HoTaters HoTaters

            Get 'em, Dana. Get that data, and all those ISP addresses for posterity.

            Want to help you with your survey, $$$.

            You have a good point, some of these denialists are very dark. They don't understand their own lives are at stake here, too.

    • Adding my thanks too Dana! It's a tough enough job you've tackled and sorry you get attacked by nuclear clowns. Just goes to show how threatened they are by boots on the ground reports. Ha, the most they can be are babbling bots on keyboards.

    Thinking about the archives and how new visitors to the website might benefit. Could there be a link to a page on the website that contains related news items, especially the very early ones, to bring newcomers up to speed? Like the following news items deal with airborne, these items deal with release into the water. These news items deal with reports from doctors. Here are items about measurements in countries in other than Japan and US. Here are stories about sealife washing up on shore .. Things like that.

  • Perhaps this order was given to the rad tank pumpers – Flush out those tanks whilst the typhoon is still around, Quickly move it!- Tepco may have some explaining to do. Who is going to find out what water is where with any hope of reality at this point. That storm seems to have prompted a release, Just too many MSM reports conveniently shrugging and saying "Must be because of the typhoon." I predict a fresh round of ALPS successes will be trumpeted from the rooftops as a cover for this. All will be lies i guess. Keeping your eyes on the balls in this game is going to get nothing but more difficult as the BS builds up. 🙁

    Will Volcanic Activity Refuel Japan’s Reactor Restart Concerns?
    Sunday October 26
    By Charlotte McLeod+ – Exclusive to Uranium Investing News

    … In addition, as Reuters states, Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) has remained steadfast in its belief that Sendai will not be affected by any volcanic activity despite the fact that — in addition to Mount Ontake and Mount Ioyama — it is located 50 kilometers from Mount Sakurajima, an active volcano that frequently erupts, and in the same region as five “giant calderas” caused by past eruptions. Indeed, before okaying Sendai’s restart back in July, the NRA described the chance of major volcanic activity during its lifespan as “negligible.''

    Together, those statements make it clear that Japan is set on restarting Sendai, and barring an update from the government or the NRA, that’s what market watchers should expect to happen. If it’s able to pass operational safety checks and gain approval from local authorities, the plant could be up and running in early 2015.

      WASHINGTON – A new congressionally mandated report from the National Academy of Sciences concludes that the overarching lesson learned from the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident is that nuclear plant licensees and their regulators must actively seek out and act on new information about hazards with the potential to affect the safety of nuclear plants…

    – governments have learned nothing. that's what tepco said in 2008 when told that there was a chance that a giant earthquake and tsunami might hit fukushima, and they should strengthen their defences.

    they didn't, and it did. so full steam ahead all over the world and let's have more meltdowns, and let's run a book on who will be next and call it insurance, get rich.

    They show that the number of nuclear safety events reported increased 15 per cent from 59 in 2011-12 to 68 in 2012-13. Incidents involving nuclear weapons rose from seven to 11, while those involving submarine reactors rose from 52 to 57.

    About half of the incidents were defined by the MoD as “category C”, meaning that they had the “potential” to cause radioactive contamination. Most of the rest were defined as “category D”, meaning there was “no or little potential” for contamination. …

    "WASHINGTON – A new congressionally mandated report from the National Academy of Sciences concludes that the overarching lesson learned from the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident is that nuclear plant licensees and their regulators must actively seek out and act on new information about hazards with the potential to affect the safety of nuclear plants…" This statement is amazing. Earthquakes and tsunamies have been well known in Japan for centuries. This new information is only three or four hundred years old for the western world. Why act quickly when your information needs to be seasoned for a few hundred years?

    Chiba governor asks Taiwan to lift import ban
    Oct. 27
    A governor from eastern Japan has called on Taiwan to lift its ban on imports of food and agricultural products from his prefecture. The ban was imposed in the aftermath of the March 2011 nuclear disaster.

    Chiba Governor Kensaku Morita made the request to the head of Taiwan's liaison commission with Japan, Lee Chia-chin, in Taipei on Monday.

    Fukushima and Chiba are among the 5 prefectures with food and agricultural products facing a blanket ban in Taiwan….

    Fukushima Watch: Decommissioning R&D Could Bear Fruit Elsewhere
    By Mari Iwata

    … one Japanese government-funded organization says that the company that can successfully develop technology to remove melted fuel debris from the three reactors at the Fukushima plant could stand to gain down the road in other parts of the world…

    There are more than 400 nuclear reactors across the world, of which about a quarter are old plants close to the end of their lifespans … the market for nuclear decommissioning and waste management is expected to exceed $420 billion over the next 20 years.

    Mr. Kogai noted that very high levels of radiation are harmful to living creatures as well as inanimate objects such as metals and plastics. By developing cameras, sensors and robotic arms…

    SP: Yes, "my world" also includes salmon, orca, polar bears, starfish, and even the yellow-jacket wasp (sidenote…I haven't seen a single one in three years).

    Is it so hard to believe a single square mile industrial complex is dealing death to trillions of earth organisms? Apparently the vast majority of 7 billion human apes can't grasp that concept.

    The Japan eco disaster is a slow process and not a blinding second of a full volley nuclear war volley that would extirpate a billion humans immediately. That we could grasp, but the slow leakage of the same amount of nuclear poisons is not registering on the public because of government collusion.

    Too late to contain Fukushima's poisons by human intervention because of the geological aspects of the escaped nuclear cores. Probably too late by the end of week one.

    There are strategies for the human species to survive in a mutanized world. On a family level Enenewsers have a huge headstart over the sleeping masses. Know the danger items. You know the fallout hazards of certain foods, rain, snow, and wind. You also know that Fukushima will not be the last nuclear meltdown and can be prepared to relocate if your family gets placed in close harms way.

    Cherish life now, grieve for what has been lost. But be a survivor whether nuclear poisons creates a 99% human ELE in the 21st century or "just" kills 60% to "normal" cancers and heart attacks.

    Fukishima Daiichi Weekly Report from the Progressive Press (10/26/2014)
    Posted by Emine Dilek on Sunday, October 26

    Since the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant disaster happened on March 11, 2011, we have been reading, watching and hearing limited and confusing reports from the area and news media. Starting this week, the Progressive Press will provide updates every Sunday, in order for our readers to have a better understanding of the situation. Instead of going through multiple news pages, you can read our report to track what is really happening in the hapless nuclear plant and our environment. The report will include current news from global sources and research updates, also past articles you might have missed…

    Today TEPCOn officials discussed a puzzle amongst themselves as to why radioactive readings spiked at what was once one of the world's largest electrical nuclear generating stations.

    There were reports that a low-pressure system had recently visited the site.

    To everyone's amazement, it was discovered that rain precipitates out as precipitation and succumbs to the laws of gravity.

    The suspected precipitation found it's way into the ground surrounding FD-NPP.

    Mysteriously, the rainwater became HIGHLY radioactive.

    TEPCon will work on a PLAN to deal with this phenomenon.

    Meanwhile, the high radioactive readings are not likely to be harmful to very many remaining life-forms.

    FYI. Random sighting:
    ''can you do research on the explosion that happened in IL, tonight….
    They're going cover it and down play it.''

  • Wooster

    These massive readings could be caused by one of two things:

    1) A typhoon

    2) A TRIPLE NUCLEAR MELTDOWN

    Which one do you think it is?

  • WKM I would have to disagree that "your only point" is that Fuku is not a human ELE.

    You took a stand on "there is not a chance that any of you inhaled anything from Fukushima".

    My point….there is a 100% chance that if you are in USA, your sucked in uranium, plutonium, and other nasties from Fukushima. Without a doubt.
