Study: Multiple surges of radioactive substances detected far from Fukushima Daiichi — Over 10,000 times usual levels at plant — Mayor: Gov’t knew but never told us, they can’t be trusted — Worst may be yet to come; Risk of ‘much broader’ contamination — CBS: “Many miles away… spike in cesium detected this week”

Asahi Shimbun, July 16, 2014 (emphasis added): Radioactive substances released during rubble-removal work at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant last year likely spread to areas nearly 50 kilometers away, according to […] Akio Koizumi, a health and environment science professor at Kyoto University’s Graduate School of Medicine, and four other scientists […] From samples collected between Aug. 15 and 22 last year, they found a reading of [1,280,000 becquerels] per cubic meter at a location in Soma, 48 km northwest of the plant […] more than six times higher than usual. Radioactivity levels were 20 to 30 times higher than normal in Minami-Soma […] The team also found that cesium levels at the measuring point in Minami-Soma surged in both May and June 2013. […] The research results indicate that future rubble removal at the nuclear plant could disperse radioactive materials over much broader areas surrounding the facility. In March this year, the scientists presented their findings to the Environment Ministry. […] TEPCO currently plans to resume [highly contaminated rubble] removal efforts by the end of July […] The utility acknowledged that the Aug. 19 operations released a maximum 4 trillion becquerels–more than 10,000 times the usual levels at the site–over four hours […]

CBS News, July 16, 2014: CBS News’ Lucy Craft recently visited the crippled Daiichi plant […] Even now the meltdowns in Fukushima still cause lingering worries for people many miles away. Craft reported that a spike in radioactive cesium was detected this week in a residential community about 30 miles northwest of the Daiichi plant.

Asahi Shimbun, July 15, 2014: Residents of Minami-Soma in Fukushima Prefecture expressed anger with the government and Tokyo Electric Power Co. for keeping them in the dark about radiation that contaminated local rice crops. […]  The ministry informed TEPCO of the problem in March […] However, the ministry failed to inform the city of Minami-Soma of the situation. […] TEPCO officials apologized for causing trouble in extensive areas.  […] At a July 14 news conference, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga was […] asked why the agriculture ministry and TEPCO failed to inform Minami-Soma about the contamination of local rice crops. “The reasons are unclear,” he said. “But I have been informed that investigations will be held soon.”

Katsunobu Sakurai, Minami-Soma Mayor: “We cannot help but distrust the agriculture ministry, which did not promptly let us know of the matter, despite it being a serious issue […] We protest (TEPCO’s) irresponsible clearing of rubble that raises concern among farmers. We demand an explanation.”

    Yeah, it's safe to move back next door to the plant. Evacuees don't need any more expense money.

    • OldFool

      Since a trillionth of a gram of Cs-137 emits over 3.2 becquerel, a gram of Cs-137 would emit over 3.2 trillion becquerels. So if they are saying that all the dust they created released no more than 4 trillion becquerels, they are implying they only stirred up 1.25 grams of Cs-137 in the dust. I cannot imagine any construction project at that site only stirring up 1.25 grams of Cs-137 in the dust. Most construction projects stir up several kilograms of dust. It would not be pure Cs-137 of course. But it would be more than 1.25 grams. Somebody has made a mistake in their math.

      • Securitize

        A Becquerel indicates, on average, an amount of radiation where one radioactive “decay” event occurs each second. 37 billion becequerels are in one curie, or 37 billion disintegrations per second.

        Potassium 40 exists in bananas and other fruits and is very weakly radioactive, 71 ten-millionTHs of a curie pure gram. By contrast, cesium 137 has 88 curies per gram. Indeed Cs 137 and Sr 90 emit 10-20 million times more radioactivity than comparable amounts of potassium 40.

        Cesium 137 is a significant portion of the long-lasting radioactive isotopes emitted during a nuclear meltdown or other accident. The amount of cesium 137 deposited per square kilometer can thus be used to determine whether that land is fit for human habitation. The lands around the Chernobyl and Fukushima reactors are considered completely uninhabitable for decades based on ~40 curies per square km, or if you like ~100 curies per square mile. Thus, slightly more than ONE GRAM of cesium 137, deposited across a square mile of land as a smoke or gas, is enough to render that land uninhabitable for decades. Contamination of ~10 curies per square km, ~25 curies per square km, or ~1/3 of a gram of Cs 137 per sq mi, renders the area unfit for raising crops or livestock.

        For comparison, dozens of nuclear power plants in the US hold fuel rods containing more than 100 million curies of Cs 137. Remember that just 100 curies can render 1 sq mi uninhabitable.

        • Securitize

          Should read:

          Contamination of ~10 curies per square km, ~25 curies per square *mi*, or ~1/3 of a gram of Cs 137 per sq mi, renders the area unfit for raising crops or livestock.

            Quote is by Steven Starr "as little as one third of a gram of Cesium-137, made into microparticles and distributed as a smoke or gas over an area of one square kilometer, will make that square kilometer uninhabitable." The Implications of The Massive Contamination of Japan With Radioactive Cesium

            Remember this when given the banana argument. "Highly-radioactive fission products such as Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 emit 10 to 20 million times more radiation per unit volume than does Potassium-40. So which one of these would you rather have in your bananas?"

            "Remember, these nuclear poisons are lethal at the atomic level. There are as many atoms in one gram of Cesium-137 as there are grains of sand in all the beaches of the world."

      QED anomaly sub file of CesiumSky, ELEmentSky image file is basically ready. I have isolated all the colors of all the ELEments in question in water for PU and gemstone inclusion colors for Uranium sky damage color identification. If anyone has similar images to these in the ELEmentSky site please link as time goes on in ENE reports about release amounts like this one to share, and I will add the convincing ones to the file. Thanks to all the image diggers, yall know who ya are.

      Onto…I appreciate that you are bringing awareness about cesium in the skies and respect all that you have contributed here. As a photographer that has been shooting with digital cameras since 2000 ( and slide film before that) I have become very familiar with the limitations of getting a correct white balance. When I'm serious about getting correct colors I shoot an image of a gray card in the same light as the subject and use this image as a custom color balance for the camera for that series of images. So even if you are using top of the line DSLR cameras they sometimes have trouble getting the white balance right (they have been improving through) On to cheap web cameras. I would not trust any thing color wise from these cameras and especially if I wasn't there to see what the scene really looked like. The photo of Strange Green nightmare dream, Alberta. I see a green tint through out the image. Several other images I see camera sensor limitations as well. Cheaper cameras can really struggle with proper white balance when taking picture facing the sun. I another big factor in the size of the digital sensor. Smaller cheap sensors with very small pixel density trend to bleed light over into a jointing pixel messing up color balance and introducing color noise into the image. So for me I'd only trust images that I took personally.
      I'm keeping an eye out here in KS and will post images of anything that looks out of the ordinary. Again Onto thank you for all you do

      • Ontological Ontological

        This is NOT color correction issues. This is QED damage in the atmosphere from PU U Cs and MANY others are in the air. ALL of the images I have taken myself are with a handy cam and I used Azure sky to check the color purity before doing the spectral data. Trust me there is NO color issues. I only employ the BEST cams for my images, and I have been watching the QED changes world wide for better than 3 years. I watched in dismay as the birds all; disappeared. And the animals. Now this loss of K line emission from the sun due to this Human kind is in DEEP dodo!

        I have done QED since the 70's where I learned it at IBM to operate a Perkin Elmer machine for base layer of the 88386 microchip. Then I did dark sky preservation, then brown sky reduction activism. As an avid astronomer I learned astrophysical techniques, and made several home ground and polished telescope mirrors. I was a semi pro photographer for years. I have volumes of images from before Chernobyl/Fukushima with normal Carbon damage. I have done spectral research of star colors, gas emission light from OIII etc. So again trust me these are NOT camera issues! These cams ALL have had NORMAL images on them for a decade until THIS year! I would not have speculated quite THAT far with absurd assumptions.

          • Wright South West Wright South West

            Onto…I have looked at all your images but there are many that are just from such a poor of quality camera with low quality lenses to serious judge what we are looking at.

            This one for example

            The camera sensor and cheap lens is having trouble with the contrast between the dark palm trees in the foreground and the bright background and it doing a typical fail adding a magenta color noise.I not saying there might not have been a hint of magenta but the poor quality of the camera makes it look worst than it would really look in real life. I can tell the lens is cheap by the classic purple fringing around the tree leafs. Do you really think that the beach is magenta like rendered in the photo? The pink would just be in the sky. I respect your knowledge about the light spectrum but if you used a lot of these images to try to help prove your point to your peers I'm afraid some of these webcam images will not convince them. I would not post any pictures if I wasn't standing there taking them myself and with high quality gear. If you were ever a serious photographer at one time you would understand that you need to be there to know if the color is right.

            I don't want to derail this topic anymore than I have so we will just have to agree to disagree on a lot of these images about what we are looking at.

            All the best to you Onto.

            • Wright South West Wright South West

              And I'm sorry but I just had to show just how bad these webcams can be. Here is your shot you posted

              Here is a months time lapse from that same webcam and as you can see there is magenta color cast through out the image day in day out. This camera has a sensor that is failing. Notice the horrible purple fringing at the top of buildings. Again not saying there might not be a little pink in the sky for real but this cam is not to be trusted color wise.

              Click the play button to see

              We all know here that Fukushima puked up a bunch of cesium in the sky and still is and how bad that is going to be for all of us but….just trying to keep it real.

              • Ontological Ontological

                I am sorry you cannot SEE. Or READ! Ok I told you I have monitored the SAME images for MONTHS these cams are NOT screwed UP! I have comparison images that are NOT screwed up in MANY images! There is K LINE DISRUPTION in sunlight due to the INCLUSIONS of TONS of horribly BAD QED disruptors like MILLIONS of TINY MIRRORS in our atmosphere! You have conveniently ignored the text explaining the problems! You have NOT reviewed this site. You have only gone thru and found what YOU think is cam problems! I have placed the images of SAMPLES SAME colors in NATURE as GEMSTONES COLLIDES. What are you going to tell me the LABORITOY cames a f*cked up!!?? This is IRREFUTABLE in QED! I even have images the PU in WATER listed as how it will screw up the colors in the air! GET A LIFE!<END>

            • Ontological Ontological

              WSW I understand your concerns, and I have taken precautions to avoid the issue you are stressing. I am aware of these cam problems and have been for many years. I chose the best I could find. You did alert me to the fact I forgot the Observatory cam images from the finest equipment available it basically useless now. I have had to improvise, due to short time constraints in getting this important information about sky damage identifications out NOW. Chernobyl Cs137 is becoming Barium137 reflective crystals in the air, after 30 years of being electrostatically suspended in the atmosphere. MUCH more Cs137 is being added to the air, and molecular bond cohesion is attracting FUKU Cs137 to it, creating a much pinker scatter of the light by the Barium137 crystals. This will eventually be seen by all living things with eyes.

              Fascinating QED of contrails refracting spectra rainbows in sunlight. Note the atmospheric damage, BUT the K line calcium emission that has been missing for a few weeks now, was still there at that point in June 2014.


  • Canuck1

    Here is the response I received about the RADIATED JAPANESE Oranges they are selling the public in VANCOUVER:
    ello Scott,

    Thank you very much for letting me know your concerns regarding the Japanese oranges and square watermelons. I can appreciate your level of concern from the two emails that you have sent but please be assured that we are in compliance with all federal regulations when it comes to imported produce. I have personally looked into the matter along with the importer and our head office support team to ensure that the product we have imported from Japan meets or exceeds the regulations set forth by the government of Canada as all incoming goods are also inspected in port.

    I am also informed by the importer that these items we have brought in are grown in the south of Japan, over 1000 kms from Fukishima. Please understand that we would never bring anything into our stores that we weren't 100% confident in the quality, understand completely the point of origin or in our relationships with our vendors/suppliers.

    I sincerely hope that I have addressed your concerns and although I wouldn't expect you to purchase any of these items, I hope you are more confident that we would never, in ignorance, put out product for our customers that could potentially harm anybody. If you have any questions, please contact me directly and I would be happy to address them.


    • Well, you tried Scott….not surprised at their we are compliant response. Best wishes to all of us as we plunge onward in spite of existing barriers to common sense.

    • davidh7426 davidh7426

      Why do we need to buy watermelon's or oranges from Japan anyway? Nothing but Government Nuclear Whores scratching each others backs in payoffs. We owe them, we buy their produce. "Sure, we would be happy to purchase your radioactive food. Our peasants will eat it without question and if they don't like it, tough shit."
      I recently took a short trip to the Oregon Coast. I took my Terra-P Dosimeter to the Pacific shore at Newport. Funny as I was expecting to see a radiation level higher than where I live on the eastern side of the state, 60 miles NW of Boise, ID. I was surprised to see Gamma background at .06-08 on the sand at the Pacific water line. Holding it up to seaweed laying on the shore revealed no increase. Beta either. So while I was expecting to see a reading I surely wasn't liking the surprise that my own town measures .14 on a normal day outside. Twice the reading as the coast was! .30 or higher will set off the internal alarm. I figure the elevated reading was due to the fallout from Dirty Hanford or the nuclear tests from Nevada.

        Hi uranium mountain. You have closer sources of some nasty rads.. Idaho National Lab and Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory.. DOE.. start digging and you will find they have been running experimental reactor for years… Fuel experiments too. All sorts of stuff. Waste dump, shallow pits right on top of Snake River aquifer..Over the last few years I have learned lots about it. Also meltdown and explosion there in Idaho falls.. Plus various open pit uranium mines in spokane 🙁 I live in Spokane… Very high counts here. So your high counts might also be impacted by all this. Nuke really is a monster that we need to stop! No nukes!!!

        Aren't we forced to buy things from countries with the trade agreements ?

        • well, not exactly – you can choose not to buy products – reading labels helps with some identification of source though raw ingredients sourcing not always cited in processed foods – but – best to change your diet to focus on locally grown/greenhouse produced products and process your own foods. This also results in a consumers' direct action protest to trade agreements that allow foods from affected areas to be on shelves at higher rad levels than even Japan allows in their stores…. sprout seeds in your kitchen to supplement, if you can, grow azolla – rich in proteins/nutrients – dry and use like a cereal, good fodder for chickens 🙂

          For the uninformed it is a disastrous choice – they do not know that their food choices will ultimatel kill them and their offspring and their pets.

    • Is disingenuous to say the product was inspected. Visually? A Geiger counter is not a suitable method for discerning harmful levels for ingesting. You need a spectrometer. I guarantee the Canadian Food Inspection agency does not routinely use this equipment. Boycott all Japanese food. It is true however that there is a large Japanese food industry here on the west coast of Canada. Lot's of sushi restaurants.

      Even if that letter is true about where the oranges came from, they went out of their way in Japan to make sure that ALL of Japan would be contaminated by burning waste everywhere. Canada should just not buy produce from Japan period. Nor should the U.S. But it's all buyer beware. No one seems to be screening anything.

You cant change them no more than they change you. Seems like both sides are a lot alike.

They study at the sponsered library of lies. They repeat what they are told without looking at the big picture. The average nuclear worker is lost in nuclear hell with writ as the only compensation for a compromised life span and swiming in the fishbowl of denial, accepting their personal perceived quality of life against the diminished collective quality of all life…

                      Atoms for Peace is less than a competent scientist. By association, I assume you either are not a scientist, or are as incompetent.

                      If you have a science background, go back to school and get a real degree in biochemistry and publish a few peer reviewed papers before spouting off unsubstantiated microbiology BS, propaganda and patent fabrications.

                  Mother fuckers, do you have any idea what it is like to have a special needs child? It is exhausting and heartbreaking everyday. When you so callously destroy a child in the womb, you destroy that mother too. Google images of the children of Belarus, of Fallujah, What does it do to a woman to have a child with part of its brain missing or a penis growing out of its forehead…and since women and children are Clearly just chattel or collateral damage too you, what about the land? How many swathes of the earth have to become uninhabitable forever until yall realize, there are better ways to boil water and oh, murder your fellow man. Your right about one thing though, we probably can't change your mind, as you well know, if you are indeed a psychologist. Psychopaths have no empathy, even for their own dying world.

    Radioactive isotopes in atmospheric aerosols over Russia and the Sea of Japan following nuclear accident at Fukushima Nr. 1 Daiichi Nuclear Power Station in March 2011.

    From 18 March to 15 April, an increase in concentrations of atmospheric aerosols over Vladivostok from 108.8 to 321.5 μg/m(3) has been registered. It was accompanied by increased activity concentrations of (134)Cs, (137)Cs, and the (131)I. During the period from 18 March to 15 April, activity concentrations of (137)Cs and (134)Cs in atmospheric aerosols increased 100 times compared with the minimum detectable concentration (MDC) level and peaked in the weekly sample gathered from 8 to 15 April (145.0 and 105.3 μBq/m(3), respectively). Variability of concentrations of natural isotopes of (7)Be and (40)K was not greater than 1 order of magnitude throughout the sampling period. Maximal values of (137)Cs and (134)Cs concentrations (1,281.5 ± 141 and 384.4 ± 42.3 μBq/m(3), respectively) in Tomsk were reached in samples taken from 1 to 2 April. For the atmospheric aerosol samples from the Sea of Japan, the largest concentration of (131)I (392.3 ± 215.7 μBq/m(3)) was detected from 13 to 19 May, while all other samples had much lower concentration values. Synoptic analysis of back trajectories movement of air masses showed that the radioactive cloud came to Vladivostok from the regions of Siberia and northeastern part of China.

    Happy meals!

    Concentrations of radioactive cesium in different cuts of beef.

    After the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant accident, high levels of radioactive cesium were detected in beef. Many prefectural governments decided to conduct blanket tests on meat from local beef cattle to prevent distribution of beef contaminated with radioactive cesium exceeding the provisional regulation value. In some cases, different concentrations of radioactive cesium were found in different cuts of beef from the same cows. These results raised questions about the reliability of the test results. Here, we investigated the reason for the differences in radioactive cesium concentration in different cuts of beef from the same cows. The concentrations of radioactive cesium in five different parts cuts of beef from three cows were negatively correlated with fat content, suggesting that the difference in radioactive cesium concentration is due to differences in fat content in the meat. In addition, our results showed that the concentration of radioactive cesium in muscle was more than 7-fold higher than that in fat in the same cow. These results suggested that it is necessary to use muscle for testing of radioactive cesium in cows.

      Thanks for sharing image the CesiumSky down unda. As this gets worse the K line Yellow sunlight is reducing fast! We were warned about the consequences of Cesium137 becoming Berium137 (microcrystalline)in the cold war era, about nuclear winter. These reflective needles are sending K line into scatter. Cameras can't see properly anymore due to extra QED colors to deal with that are MAJOR reflective. This will result in cold. big time cold. Ice and snow with this stuff mixed in will refuse to melt, and in diminished sunlight reflective ice is not good. Thanks again in light of this image, I am convinced now of EARLY damage there I will add cam images from Antarctica of damage only months after 3 11, to my CesiumSky image library.

        Here are the troll's e-mail addresses that he posted for all to see on the FD website: [for the MFX1209 creature] [for the MF and Moe Foe creature]

        Maybe he just needs friends.

        MFX 1209 has apparently graduated from potty mouth to porn (hence the "X" in MFX) and posted a link in the Fukushima Diary chat room to a porn site. This guy's a wiener, alright!

        'Newsers are an open-minded, tolerant bunch. But how long can ‘Newsers be expected to overlook this troll's flaccid appendage (his intellect) and his failed attempt to compensate via pornographic, pre-pubescent and nonsensical posts here on Enenews, Fukushima Diary and Nukepro's blog?

        Clearly, the troll MF, Moe Foe and MFX 1209 (and probably more MF avatars to come) gets his jollies by stalking these sites and inserting his blather where ever, whenever he can. Any hole in the conversation will do—he’s not particular.

          He posted a comment to the EPA as MoeFoe [no surname]. He doesn't have a large standing if he is not posting as himself with his work title. I am reading Full Body Burden, the book about Rocky Flats. I highly recommend this book. The nuclear industry was using the same lies. Even though Rocky Flats was considered the most contaminated site in the US, the workers were told the same lies that MoeFoe is repeating. For example, that the work environment was safer than a downtown street. They were actually incinerating plutonium and stacking up the plutonium waste and letting it run into the irrigation ditches leading to the water reservoir for Broomfield. WIPP wasn't yet safely engineered before that starting receiving waste from Rocky Flats. They were sending the plutonium waste by boxcar to Idaho, 140 55-gallon drums in each boxcar and with 200 grams of plutonium in each drum. The governor of Idaho finally refused a boxcar and the governor of Colorado refused to receive it back and they pressured the Congress to open up WIPP early.

          It was the EPA and the FBI that shut down Rocky Flats. Dr. Helen Caldicott was at a number of the demonstrations at Rocky Flats leading up to the shutdown.

          Rocky Flats is not a sacrifice zone. The land surrounding Rocky Flats can never used again for human habitation ever again.

          NoeFoe needs to read this book. It documents many of the workers who died of cancer because they were at Rocky Flats.

              The author worked at Rocky Flats in 1996-1997 for a few onths. She lived for many years in the most contaminated spot in Bridledale and rode her horse over the contaminated fields. The man who helped get her horse out of Stanley Lake when the horse was stuck in the mud had to get into the mud to help and died of cancer as did many of her friends and their families. Her friends who had testicular cancer at age 20. Her friend and neighbor who died at age 11 of cancer. Her neighbors who died of brain cancer. And there are many documents in the footnotes of her book that are open to anyone to read.

          • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

            Rocky Flats should be named a sacrifice zone. They built the buildings down into the earth. And then when they "cleaned up"
            they just removed the 1st 6 feet, and covered everything over. There are still leaking drums of plutonium waste buried there. They just put asphalt over.

            There are developers trying to make money off the land.

            I substitute taught near there a few times in Arvada and Superior. Everything is newly built. I almost bought a new house in the area. I'm glad I read Full Body Burden. I'll never teach there again. I pity the children and parents who don't know that the government wouldn't pay the money needed to clean up this site. There are huge amounts of plutonium in the soil 30 square miles to the east and southeast. No cleanup was ever done outside the site. They are still using Standley Lake for drinking water. The inhumanity of the human species knows no end.

                    The nuclear industry is definitely not capitalism. The nuclear industry is not accountable for any of its actions. It receives huge subsidies from the taxpayers for its operation, and to store its waste. It is the most expensive and most lethal form of energy. Could never survive in a market driven economy.

                    I hope the government stops the subsidies. We need market driven energy. The market would end oil, natural gas, and nuclear energies.

                    Nuclear energy is bankrupting every country that has it and its populations are also being decimated.

Perhaps mankind has already harnessed the power of the stars and failed, possibly multiple times. We may have been ready for the enormous immediate gift of nuclear, but nuclear isn't ready for incompetent humans – we were not (and still aren't) prepared for the consequences. Why the fascination of a technology that kills the very beings experimenting with it? It is a murderous and suicidal hobby. I hope you see the flaw here.

                    These people manage nuclear accidents with spin. Doctor isn't curing radiation poisoning or coming up with ways to avoid future accidents but working with a team of lawyers and bureaucrats to manage a situation ie a nuclear accident, to their own advantage. Cancer from radiation may take a decade to kill. That's why you have phrases such as no immediate danger.

Not that education has anything really to do with intelligence/decision-making (I dropped out of college cheerfully and am better off), it is clear that industry wants high school level workers to do dangerous work while only paying them enough to make them think they're living it up. Also, moving up within the field is seemingly simple and mostly require previous work experience and that high school diploma. Easy way to keep people on the inside from leaving IMO.

      No. The people I know are very passionate about doing good. People become engineers for a reason.You know about that right?

      • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar VanneV

        Nuclear technology itself is flawed. Every nuclear reactor is a dirty bomb. Weapons of mass destruction are war crimes. When there is a nuclear accident the destruction is worldwide. The nuclear waste will bankrupt any and every economy in the future.

        Nuclear reactors are built to last 20 years, and they are having their licenses renewed for 60 or 70 years.

          • MFX 1209

            Those are just the ones you can find. With the exception of the three power reactor accidents the vast majority of these mishaps involved localized effects. Some had unnecessary broader evacuations. Still given that no enterprise is failsafe the nuclear industry is by far one of the safest enterprises. Safer than say flying in a Malaysian passenger plane.

            • or-well

              hehe, localised…to just one planet. Cultist opposite-speak, biglie mythologising.

            • He is telling a big lie.

              With an element of the truth "those are the ones you can find" because it is the MO of radiation industry to cover up cover up cover up, until forced to fess up. They always cover up….so maybe the list of accidents is 3 to 10 times larger.

              Nuke fails us again and again, and the new technology won't be reasonably better.

            • Sad a commercial flight was flying too close to a war torn area. You see the dead bodies and it's quantifiable. But it may take years and decades for all the illnesses and cancers from Fukushima to manifest.
              Not quantifiable. Especially when it is clear Tepco and Japanese government is lying. But to get back to your analogy, the wreckage of an airplane will be cleaned up and that land can be used for farming next month. Large tracks of land have been rendered useless and uninhabitable for generations in Russia and Japan.
              What other industry does that? It is so poisonous at Fukushima the cores are unapproachable by man or robot. They don't know where the cores are. Maybe a coal plant will render immediate area useless for farming or living but you won't die immediately if inspection of machinery is needed. Add to that the uncertainty in a long term solution to store waste and security risk as plutonium created by nuke plants is a key ingredient in nuclear bomb making. Oh yeah. What other industry has such close ties to the military?
              And why can't the industry look after its own waste without massive money from the government?

          Exactly. It is highly flawed by design. The only reason more people are not concerned about nuclear problems is because they are brainwashed and lack the ability to quickly process new information.

        • Obewanspeaks, you to are very perceptive and offer us words of wisdom.

I told people that all we have to do is shut them all down and of course these people I was talking too stated we must have a replacement first. No, I stated, shut them all down now and then scramble like hell to change the energy direction and course immediately.

            But there will be less lights? Of course there will be less lights as I just flew over LA at night and the whole west coast is one gigantic pollution filled mess with excess millions of light bulbs a blazing brightly all night long.. 🙁

            In a natural organic Earth world none of those lights would be on..period!

            We must sacrifice right now, today, for/to save the future of the world we are now creating.. 🙂

            • Is a puzzle to me that America's finest nuclear scientists and experts could piss away 90 billion tax dollars with narry a whimper from the public.
              And they still maintain credibility in some circles!

    KAWAMATA, Fukushima — As the Sendai Nuclear Power Plant in Kagoshima Prefecture advances toward reactivation, a Fukushima nuclear evacuee here is concerned that lessons learned from the Fukushima nuclear disaster are now being forgotten, a concern shared by many in the prefecture….
    …Ryoko Torihara, 65, chairwoman of an association opposing the Sendai Nuclear Power Plant, said, "They used too low of a magnitude for their earthquake standard (in safety calculations)," and also questioned whether potentially destructive volcanic activity could really be predicted before affecting the plant. "The NRA is not a regulation authority, it is a (nuclear plant) promotional authority," she said. …
    Yoshitaka Mukohara, 57, leader of another anti-nuclear plant group, said, "A number of problems (with the Sendai nuclear plant) are being left unattended. Are people fine with restarting the plant while evacuation plans have yet to be created?"

  • rogerthat
    TOKYO: Japan’s nuclear watchdog said on Wednesday that two atomic reactors were safe enough to switch back on, marking a big step towards restarting the country’s nuclear plants which were shuttered after the Fukushima crisis.
    But fresh protests — and accusations that the regulator is a puppet of the powerful atomic industry — have highlighted the challenges Prime Minister Shinzo Abe faces in bringing back a technology that many Japanese have forever sworn off.
    Abe has been trying to persuade a wary public that the world’s third largest economy must return to an energy source which once supplied more than a quarter of its power.
    Widespread anti-nuclear sentiment has simmered in Japan ever since an earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 caused meltdowns at the Fukushima power plant — the worst atomic disaster since Chernobyl.
    Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA) officials on Wednesday issued a more than 400 page safety report on the Sendai plant in southern Japan, technically giving the operator the green light to switch on its two reactors — in what would be the first restart since Japan ushered in tougher regulations last year…

  • rogerthat

    …NRA chairman Shunichi Tanaka said the Sendai plant would have to operate under some of the world’s toughest safety standards to reduce the risk of another major accident.“But it is often misunderstood when we talk about safety… we can never say there is zero risk,” he told reporters in Tokyo.
    At a public meeting to finalise their decision, Tanaka and his colleagues were met with shouts of “Shame on you!” from a small band of protesters, while demonstrators also gathered outside the Sendai plant.
    “The NRA has yielded to the enormous pressure of the nuclear industry and the Abe government… instead of putting the safety of people first,” said Kazue Suzuki from Greenpeace Japan. …

  • rogerthat
    … (NRA) chairman Shunichi Tanaka (said) the inspection for the Sendai plant incorporated lessons from Fukushima, particularly focusing on ways to build layers of protection in case of serious incidents in a country prone to natural disasters, including volcanic activity, eathquakes, tsunami and typhoon.
    "Previously, safety inspections were merely design-based, but this time we focused on how to prevent severe accidents," he told a weekly commissioners' meeting, which was repeatedly disrupted with anti-nuclear protesters heckling from the floor.
    Tanaka said multi-layer steps are in place to protect the reactor core and its containment chamber from damage, while reducing radiation leaks by adding filtered vents. The operator also upgraded the equipment's seismic resistance and tripled the tsunami seawall to 15 meters (50 feet). Other risks such as terrorist attacks, airplane strikes and violent volcanic explosions also have been taken into consideration.
    The Sendai plant is surrounded by at least five active volcanos. Commissioner Kunihiko Shimazaki, a seismologist, said it's impossible to accurately predict eruptions, although the current assessment suggests a catastrophic eruption is extremely unlikely. …

    – ''we focused on how to prevent severe accidents'' but how do you do that if 'it's impossible to accurately predict eruptions'? Earthquake, Tsunami, is Eruption next?

    Global Physicians Issue Scathing Critique of UN Report on Fukushima
    Fukushima: Bad and Getting Worse
    [July 18, 2014]

    "The IPPNW’s report says flatly, “Publications and current research give no justification for such apparently optimistic presumptions.” UNSCEAR, the physicians complain, “draws mainly on data from the nuclear industry’s publications rather than from independent sources and omits or misinterprets crucial aspects of radiation exposure”, and “does not reveal the true extent of the consequences” of the disaster."

    • "As a result, the doctors say the UN report is “over-optimistic and misleading.” The UN’s “systematic underestimations and questionable interpretations,” the physicians warn, “will be used by the nuclear industry to downplay the expected health effects of the catastrophe” and will likely but mistakenly be considered by public authorities as reliable and scientifically sound. Dozens of independent experts report that radiation attributable health effects are highly likely."

    Can nuclear power rebrand itself as environment-friendly? –
    The notion of nuclear power as a climate solution remains anathema to many inside and outside the environmental movement. The arguments against using it are manifold, including not just the most recent nuclear disaster in Japan but also the challenge that there is no permanent resting spot for spent uranium fuel. Beyond the safety issues, critics point to the high cost of construction, which run well into the billions for a single reactor.

    These are key reasons Nuclear Matters recruited Ms. Browner, once an ardent opponent of nuclear energy, who has joined other environmentalists operating independently, such as James Hanson at the Columbia University Earth Institute, to support nuclear power. Those eco-activists have found common ground with moderate Republicans who believe that climate change must be addressed to avoid its worst possible effects, such as rising tides and melting snow caps.

    “Frankly, if you are concerned about the safety issues, then why not endorse the newer nuclear plants that are built with added safeguards,” Abraham adds. “Moreover, the existing plants have been consistently upgraded to meet the newest challenges and safety threats.”

    More than 430 commercial nuclear power reactors are operating in 31 countries,…

    Do we not have enough computer nerds here that we can start tracking actual physical locations of Trolls, hack their computers, and start showing up on peoples door steps? I would like to know where MF lives, along with other nuke protectors. The doctors that spread lies, the agency officials that spread lies. I want to know where they all live so everyone can be made aware of where they live.

    When the death and destruction starts to be real mainstream and can no longer be ignored, it would be great if we could treat these pieces of shit as if they were Nazi SS post WWII. I for one would like to see people hang.

    If we really want to hold these people accountable for their actions, we have to be able to catch them when TSHTF.

      It does not serve this website well to have ANYONE infer threatening people's safety and well being and home trespass- no matter how we disagree with them. Think your comment is not well meaning in any land, not even here……Hope you see the perspective I am coming from and make different choices in the future.

        Figure of speech of course. The reason I would want an address is so we could protest at their homes, their place of business, put up signs in their neighborhoods. Bring the fight to their door. Maybe if everyone in their neighborhood was made aware of who lives among them, the shame and constant stink eyes might promote a change in their stance.

    • Thats going a bit far, I think a generalized "there ain't enough light poles" for all the powers that be that are raping our society would probably be an acceptable rant. But targeting specific people with hanging is pushing it too far and may actually be illegal.

      Even our top politicians deserve due process….lol kind of.

      Better use of time would be spent fighting all things (agencies, industries, that are pro-nuclear)..not stalking people!

  • and to think Japanese farmers used to be concerned about the 1 Bq/kg deposited from sand storms coming out of Malaysia. Unless there's been some recent accident in North America we don't know about, this current surge from Fukushima they speak of did get detected far away. According to our research, as far as the east coast of America. Even further disturbing to me, which I related in my comment to the EPA, is that despite these adverse findings, none of these samples registered even close to 350cpm with our gc or scintillator.

  • As per above article Tepco and the government knew about radiation spreading through dust caused by demolition work but neglected to tell the public. Word on the street is contaminated rice is mixed with non contaminated rice until the numbers come down. The deceit of the industry and government is reported in mainstream news. The facts found on this website are from reliable sources. Nuclear accidents are managed by spin doctors. To properly remediate Fukushima requires an amount of money that would bankrupt Japan and in turn ruin the global economy. They prefer to allow the world population to absorb the extra sickness and mortality.

    Rebrand nuclear power? That is hysterical….just smile at it and it wont hurt you…(yes, sarcasm) If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…etc. I personally would rather have to worry about duck waste over nuclear waste any day.
    Waste and miss – management will keep nuclear energy user unfriendly.

  • Nuclear power steals from the future, while being non economical in the present.

    A new option has made nuclear obsolete. Solar PV Can be had for 30 years at 3 cents to 9 cents per kWH, and it stays at that rate.

    Nuclear dies at 14 cents (Kewaunee) and increases every year.

    Does this even deserve any more discussion?

  • There is broad disagreement over the amounts and effects of radiation exposure due to the triple reactor meltdowns after the 2011 Great East-Japan Earthquake and tsunami. The International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) joined the controversy June 4, with a 27-page “Critical Analysis of the UNSCEAR Report ‘Levels and effects of radiation exposures due to the nuclear accident after the 2011 Great East-Japan Earthquake and tsunami.’”
