Asahi Shimbun, Jun 17, 2015 (emphasis added): The government [and TEPCO] announced… removal of spent nuclear fuel from storage pools… will be delayed by up to three years… due to their new policy of “risk reduction over speed.” This delay, right from the start, must mean that the old road map was poorly planned. Are [they] really able to now foretell that the delay will be three years at most? And why was risk reduction not their top priority until now?… In autumn 2013, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared… the situation was “under control.”… it has become abundantly clear that the situation is anything but under control, and that the previous decommissioning road map failed to accurately assess the high level and extensive spread of radiation contamination. Removing debris releases radioactive substances into the atmosphere…

Mainichi Daily News, Jun 15, 2015: The delay is due to unexpected difficulties preventing the escape of airborne radioactive contaminants during decontamination and wreckage clearing work. Decommissioning reactors at the heart of one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters is of course bound to be extremely difficult, and this reality is coming into sharp relief

Asahi Shimbun, Jun 13, 2015: … because of the unprecedented scale and nature of the decommissioning project resulting from the triple meltdown… the rush to move on resulted in only more problems… One of the biggest problems has been… stopping leaks of radiation-contaminated water and dealing with radioactive materials that are still gushing

The Weather Channel transcript, Apr 8 2015: “Radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster is now washing up on the shores of Canada’s Vancouver Island… In November, the Canadian government detected airborne elements of radioactive pollutants in sea water vegetation further off the shores of British Columbia.”

    “It is only natural that the new road map proposes to reject the flooding method for the time being and study other removal methods over the next two years.”

    http://ajw.asahi.com/article/views/editorial/AJ201506170050

    "Japan has made significant progress since our previous missions. The situation on the site has improved – progressive clean-up has led to reduced radiation dose levels in many parts of the site," said team leader Juan Carlos Lentijo, IAEA Director of Nuclear Fuel Cycle and Waste Technology….
    "The situation, however, remains very complex, with the increasing amount of contaminated water posing a short-term challenge that must be resolved in a sustainable manner. The need to remove highly radioactive spent fuel, including damaged fuel and fuel debris, from the reactors that suffered meltdowns poses a huge long-term challenge."

    Huge Long Term Challenge….HLTC

    Because of TEPCon's HLTC the world faces GMI, of that I am TATALly sure.

    This is what is meant by FUBAR.

    I have said it before, and you'll see me say it again…

    You don't need a decommissioning plan for Fukushima, it is decommissioning itself.

    More to the point, there WILL BE NO solution, despite all the power-point presentations over a large cherry-wood conference table.

    The World deserves the truth and nothing but the truth, so help us all.

    (2020..)
    During the Tokyo 2020 Olympics workers will attempt to BEGIN to remove fuel debris from Units 1 and 2.

    As most of you know, lethal amounts of radiation were released during the 2017 work on Unit #3 and the Northern Hemisphere was evacuated.

    For that we are so sorry.

    It was dripping, then leaking, became squirting, started spurting, went into spewing, burst into flowing, now its gushing, the real truth it is none stoppable erupting both into Air and Sea and into you and me.

    It was important to tear down the unsightly blown reactor buildings as fast as possible for appearance sake. Didn't matter if radioactive de-construction dust and debris was being spread all around. Now all of a sudden, radioactive contamination is a problem and slows work to a point of delay. Like onsite radioactivity is going to go away anytime soon. So, they just keep raising the exposure rates for workers.

    The kabuki dance around the fact that there is no containment x3, continues. The reason they can't flood 3 containments is because the containment shells are all blown to hell. The only areas holding water are the basements that house the suppression doughnuts and those basements are not considered part of containment, they are supposed to be dry. More like they are just part of the water table now. Not to speak of, they don't know where the melts are to begin with.

    It is unclear how much radioactive water TEPCO filters daily or has dumped into the Pacific besides what leeches uncontrollably past the melts and into the ocean minute by minute.

    The site is becoming unworkable and nothing is going to improve 1, 2, 3 years from now or decades from now.

    Just found out my mother in law and stepdaughter are on thyroid medicine and grandpa is getting his thyroid checked today. This is in Memphis. They have been suffering the same symptoms as me and I'm way up here in Vermont. I'm just gonna try not to put 2 and 2 together. It's too devastating to swallow whole. It's just a virus…it's just a bug…

      Best wishes to them and you MM, and I hope you suspicions are totality wrong 🙁

      • PhilipUpNorth PhilipUpNorth

        MM:
        Sorry to hear of your family's thyroid problems.
        I have lived near nuclear plants all my life.
        After all, they are now everywhere.
        So, I had Iosat potassium iodide tablets around, and took some before the March 2011 plume arrived.
        Lucky me.
        We ENEnewsers suspected at the time those reactors blew up that the northern hemisphere would have big problems.
        Sorry we were right about that.
        Good luck to us all.
        Happy Summer Solstice, everybody. 😉

    • Really sorry to hear that.

      My mother, who's in her 70s, recently had to have her thyroid removed here in France. In most parts of the world treatment of thyroid conditions is now quite advanced. The worst part of it, whether you've had your thyroid removed or not, is getting the levels of medication right. It usually takes a while.

      • I am so sorry, MM. Sending you and your family healing vibes. It's mind boggling how many people I know and come into contact with on a daily basis that have cancer or a love one battling it or who has died from it. When I mention the astronomical numbers to people, they agree that it is crazy but they have already been conditioned to believe that it is normal. At least 50 percent of the US and Canadian population will develop cancer in their lifetime. Despite a huge uptick in cancer rates in Florida post GOM and 4 plus years of Fuckyoushima, no one thinks to ask why or they blame diet or local pollution. Radiation from NPPs almost never comes up unless it was someone living in proximity to a NPP. Most don't see the obvious connection.

        Sending good wishes for your good health.

      @ melting mermaid and everyone else

      I got over my Thyroid Cancer in a week as I did with two other Cancer attacks over the years with my own recipe.

      I posted this several times, bookmark it or go by the way of the rouge Becquerel's

      Director International Medical Veritas Association 
      This was  from http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message560715/pg1
      here are two other sites you can go 
      http://www.fourwinds10.com/siterun_data/health/holistic_alte
      http://www.beating-cancer-gently.com/nl108.html

       Cancer is a fungus growing on dead cells from radiation becquerel bombardment, the fungus lives on sugars.

       Recipe>

      1. 2 tea spoons of Bob's Red Mill Baking Soda 

      2. 6 tea spoons of organic grade A dark amber Maple syrup.

      3. Stir in sauce pan tilted back to keep continents deep stir able at low heat till it foams up and cooks down to a very little foam…this takes about 5 min.

      4. Heat off, let sit for 20 min and it will turn into a thick carmel.

      5. Add tea spoon of water place over low heat again, stir to turn it back into liquid form.

      6. Using a big all purpose syringe, suck up the liquid to fill (give or take) 28 to 30 double 00 gel caps (get at health food store)

      [cont]

      • Gasser Gasser

        [cont]

        [Can be taken directly from the spoon…I don't like the taste of it so I gelcap it]…also it helps to have a piece of wood with holes drilled to hold the gelcap's when filling.

        7. With water take half first half in the morning and other half just before bed in evening.

        8. Do this till you have used up all the 12.7 oz of Maple syrup…you will end up using 300+ gel cap's that come 250 per bag full or you can get by bulk also.

        9. In a matter of few weeks the cancer will be gone no matter what type or where it's located.

        How this works> heating up the Maple syrup Bicarbonate Soda binds the two elements, it goes into the blood stream and is a Trojan horse carrying the Baking soda into the sugar loving tumor making it so Alkaline the fungus dies out.

        Never!! get a CAT scan, MRI and unnecessary Xray’s, it will radiate you causing more cancer in the long run because radiation is the first and foremost cause of cancer…don't let them bullshit you that cancer comes from this and that…cancer is a byproduct of Uranium and all it's daughter Isotopes and their Actinides> (free radicals) that since 1950's Atomic testing and bomb's have contaminated all food and water supplies world wide.

        Hello Gasser and all beautiful people here,

        Stay strong and continue.

        We should NEVER give up or give in….I trust that I will stand by my words when MY time comes to be in the same condition.

        My thought (not belief) is that, with all the odds against it, there might be some bright spark out there that can actually fix things.
        "IMPOSSIBLE" will be words I will hear from saying that, but, we have survived against impossible odds up till now and we may well do it again.

        To give up HOPE is to give up life.
        I read here every day and I read of how bad it is and how bad it will become for life on OUR planet, but, I do not give in to it!
        I intend to be here for a LONG time.

        I may sound stupid, but I don't intend to give up nor give in.

        Every word written on this website is by people that wont give in and I applaud them !

        Stay Cool 🙂

  • I really wish someone would charge Abe with crimes against humanity.

    And slightly away from the topic to this thread, I received two very angry responses to my email to Michael J. DeConcini in which I accuse him of crime against humanity fro his role in pushing nuclear on the world. I got under his skin in a big way!!!!!!!!! Turns out the guy is also a vain egomaniac and cannot stand to be insulted. Admittedly, my email to him regarding nuclear, Fukushima children's enlarged thyroids and diabetes and the death of the Pacific Ocean was filled with expletives – at least every other sentence and I do not call him kind things. I treated him with the same lack of respect he has shown to the victims of nuclear and the death of the ocean. It was the worst day of my life and I decided to take out my frustrations on a few shills for nuclear. His response was pathetic, extremely juvenile and predictable. He made assumptions that were absolutely false. I responded to his comments with this (in part):

    • Go drink a liter of water from the Pacific, collected right in front of the Fukushima factory. Relocate there and prove to the world that nuclear is safe!!!! I have yet to see even ONE proponent of nuclear offer to relocate to the Fukushima prefecture. TEPCO needs help. Even the Yakuza have run out of workers. Before promoting more nuclear nonsense, how about the proponents put their money where their mouths are and show us how safe it is to live next to three melted out coriums and who knows what with SPF #4? How about lead by actual example, not hypothesis. Land is really cheap there. The Japanese government might even pay you and your brethren to relocate to Fukushima! You could do a work trade. They really need the help and Fukushima doesn't exactly make the industry look good. SInce you are such a strong proponent, I am not sure why you are working over there unless you don't believe your own bullshit. They have a serious problem on their hands and not one person in the industry stepping in to help!

        the scientists who said " The results of the Initial Screening suggest that it is unlikely these cases are the effect of radiation exposure" should be sprayed with a mix of concentrated skunk gland and aged dog urine by squirt gun in the face, or by drone as the opportunity arises. Skunk odor has never caused a death thus its a non violent reminder that they re check their data

      • Thank you. I am sending it to the nuclear whore, although with a different email account. The nuclear whore denied this, calling it crazy conspiracy stuff and accusing me of falling into an entrapment by the Illuminati. (Seriously! Not sure why he threw them in there, as I only called him a pile of excrement masquerading as a human with a million dollar a year salary, never mentioning NWO plots…although I did say something about the same government that admittedly lied to start two wars and Madeline the c word Albright's 500,000 dead Iraqi children quote is now telling us that Fukushima poses no problem.

        • Yuri Hiranuma (whose blog I linked to above) is a Japanese Osteopathic physician now living in America. You can find her Twitter feed here:

          https://twitter.com/YuriHiranuma

          As a doctor, Hiranuma tends to be a bit technical in her blog posts. From what I can see, in her latest post she is saying that out of more than 300,000 people tested under the age of eighteen about a half are showing thyroid problems.

          I should stress again that these tests were done on a group of people under the age of 18.

            Yuri is a strange one.. I generally like her posts and learn from them.. I've even had some friendly interactions but she denies Mangano & Busby's s work as junk science

            http://fukushimavoice-eng2.blogspot.com/2014/04/a-letter-to-editor-regarding.html?m=1

            Can somebody figure this out? Some say she's controlled opposition, don't want to point fingers- I wonder if anybody can enlighten to the nuance of this?

            • Bo, as far as I'm aware, Caldicott also denies Mangano and Busby's work as junk science.

              Whatever people feel about Yuri Hiranuma, she always gives very authorative links to back-up what she's saying, and that's shown in the link you gave.

              People like Hiranuma are rigorous intellectuals, who are only interested in the truth, and not some poxy corporate agenda.

                Because I personally couldn't figure out the details of what was expressed in the letter.
                Thank you so much. Very much appreciated.

                Does Caldicott deny Mangano's work at TMI too?

                • I don't doubt the integrity or sincerity of Mangano and Busby, either, and I'm sorry if I gave that impression.

                  Point is that Hiranuma, whilst no longer living in Japan, does come from that country, and she's a doctor.

                  Let's face it, on boards like ENENews we spend most of our time trying to figure out what's actually going on in Japan.

                  To me, it seems a bit mad to dismiss voices like Hiranuma, who are far better placed/qualified to know what's going on than us lot in the west.

                    Well.. ok.. now I don't care what we should or shouldn't do…
                    I'm just curious about that letter about Mangano/Busby. It did trigger ire amongst many.
                    I can't say anything because I don't understand it.

                  • bo bo

                    RobG I'm going to say this though.. Yuri is anti-enenews. Search the words on her tweets and they're all tweets that make fun of the site for being erroneous. Some of which I agree- I never understand the way the headlines are chosen here, it's often misleading. But she's relentless with the bashing. I know plenty of goodhearted antinukers who regard this site warmly for what it has done over the years ( inspite of its imperfections).. Yuri is not one of them. Very cold.

                    • Bo, I take note of what you've said and will try to delve into Yuri a bit deeper.

                      If I dig up anything I'll post it on this site.

                    • bo bo

                      That is – I know plenty of goodhearted antinukers *in Japan* who regard this site warmly for what it has done over the years.

                      Also- I just realized- if you're just reading the English tweets u may not see the bashing because it's all in Japanese ( & quite colloquial)

                      Sorry I didn't mean to yank you around about this, it's just that I've been puzzled about this for so long and have been looking at it from all angles. It would be all so simple if I could understand that letter!

                      I provided the stats on this hypothyroid paper. This is an extraordinarily misguided presentation by Ian Goddard. I received an email from the editor of the journal OJPed about this Hiranuma thesis that Gogard presents here; I told the editor to ask Hiranuma to write it up as a contribution and send it to the journal for peer review. This the editor did. The snide remnaros about “predatory journals” can only come form somene with no knowledge of the peer review literature. Hiranuma refused to write anything. It was pointed out that the key issue was the (convenient) change in the assay methodologt just before the Fukushima exposed cohort period. Recently I was approached by a mainstream radiation journal. Was I prepared to debate in the journal with Hiranuma over her criticisms (and we now see. Ian Goddard’s thesis)? I was. But Hiranuma wrote back saying she would not debate the issue in the journal. Why? Clearly because by then it was obvious that she had royally fucked up in her approach. There are two points I will make. The first is that the decision to choose 29 and 19 as cut-off points for the study was based primarily on the following question: did Fukushima exposures affect the TSH levels in infants. Mangano and Sherman could have used any cut off. The question was about the probability distribution shift. Answer: Fukushima did affect the babies. Goddards nitpicking about what is defined as…

                    • or-well

                      Goddards nitpicking about what is defined as Hypothyroidism is neither here nor there. The exposures from Fukushima clearly affected an objectively measured bio-indicator the frequency distribution of TSH scored in newborns. This is the important conclusion. The second addresses his other and utterly stupid assertion about mechanisms, and the only effect of radiation being lagged cancer increases. There are many epidemiological indications that increased death rates immediately follow low level exposures and plenty of mechanisms. However, a mechanism identification is not necessary for causality. This was stated by Sir Austen Bradford Hill in his Principles of Medical Statistics. Hill pointed out that current understanding may not be able to find a mechanism and referred to typhus which was epidemiologically related to exposures to rat fleas but the agent was then unkown. Goddard should avoid areas where he is clearly out of his depth, and Hiranuma should put her papers into the peer review process instead of whingeing on internet blogs.

                      Dr. Busby's comment ended with your 9:14 p.m. comment. It is a bit confusing because there are no quotation marks in your 2 comments, and your 9:24 pm and 9:35 pm comments are not part of Dr. Busby's comment.

                    • or-well

                      yes anne I know. Thank you. It did seem somewhat self-explanatory to me but precision is always good.
                      1. I was trying to avoid giving mention to that insane nukist prosyletizers website.
                      2. I was wrestling with the character limit
                      and having trouble getting the second part to post – probably my error.

                      While I'm here, I will say this – sometimes one would think the nukists were having to fight an uphill battle against overwhelming odds as some sort of endangered minority the way they defensively whine and snivel because they can't run roughshod over all science and reality and regulation the way they'd like to.

                      why didnt Open Journal of Pediatrics publish Yuri Hiranuma's objection though? Because Yuri refused to write up something for peer review? She had already written her objections and would have had them published….as it sounds.

                    • Wyakin Wyakin

                      CSD: why didnt OJP publish Yuri Hiranuma's objection..

                      We may never know without asking the editor.

                      Rhetorical Q's sometimes require restatement of what appears to be the obvious:

                      “…by then it was obvious that she had royally fucked up in her approach.”

                      Doubtful it was sanctioned by PSR.

                      Publish a document by someone distancing themselves from their own objections by virtue of the fact they are refusing to substantiate their underlying analysis in writing?

                      “The exposures from Fukushima clearly affected an objectively measured bio-indicator the frequency distribution of TSH scored in newborns.”

                      The cutoff would not change the conclusion.

                      “..utterly stupid assertion about mechanisms, and the only effect of radiation being lagged cancer increases…

                      There are many epidemiological indications that increased death rates immediately following low level exposures and plenty of mechanisms.

                      However, a mechanism identification is not necessary for causality…this was stated by Sir Austen Bradford Hill in his Principles of Medical Statistics…”

                      Hiranuma can respond at any time to the invitation to put papers into the peer review process. Goddard, irrelevant.

                      By the time this happens, Japan will be in the midst of a radiation caused death and disease epidemic originating at point and time from FU, on a scale never previously achieved by man.

                      Yuri and nuclearist cheerleaders will be recognized by all as completely and totally delusional.

                    Translation : you know.. I must say that pronuclear sites often prove to be valuable source of information. They really do research solid facts, IMO.' ( as opposed to 'goofy' 'WTF' sites like enenews.. ? Hm. )

                      Remember Dr. Yamashita is also from Japan and is a doctor.. so.. I think it makes sense for us to be cautious and yes this could actually be part of the bigger picture, although I can't quite grasp it fully yet.

                      I think it's relevant to consider against whom attack is directed, how often, by how many, and from what number of directions.

                      Or – if Busby is so irrelevant, why the consistent, prolonged, attacks in concert using every tactic in the book?
                      They don't just send the grunts, the nukist foot-soldiers after him. They send the character assasins, the specialists, the fanatics and the officers.

                      Here's an example of the oxymoronic mantra of the worlds most nuclear shill.

                      He and his nuclear groupies have no problem attacking those who do not fit within their nuclear fairy tales concept. It's how they roll.

                      A simple article realizing that Order 1000 creates the opportunity to finally get renewables, a necessity, installed on a climate change, mitigating, level.

                      Nuclear's not gonna do that. Not even with a stupid miniature reactor.

                      He vainly jumps in at the comment level to protect his stellar reputation and his empirical credentials, against those who would sully a tiny little man.

                      I laughed at the thought of anything he has done that is significant, except to tell lies and take out submarine trash, especially when compared to the credentials of a physician…

                      How One Wonky Court Decision Could Unlock Our Renewable Energy Future
                      August 20th, 2014

                      When it comes to the future of renewable energy in America, most people don’t think about the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission or the United States Court of Appeals.

                      But a decision last week by the District of Columbia U.S. Court of Appeals upheld FERC’s Order 1000, which would require regional coordinated planning and renewable energy integration for major new transmission line projects.

                    Dr. Caldicott's experience is not different than the research provided by Dr. Busby and Dr. Mangano. Her findings from her education and experience on the health effects of Fukushima and radiation are the same as those of Dr. Busby and Dr. Mangano. Only pro-Nukers call their research junk science. Those who deny the health effects of low dose radiation from internal emitters and the thyroid effects of radioactive iodine from Fukushima are the junk scientists. This does not include Dr. Busby and Dr. Mangano the heroes of scientific studies among many other scientists studying the effects of radiation and low dose radiation.

                    My comments about those lying scum government nucleoapes two years ago in one of the many Conca/Forbes smear pieces on Fukushima:

                    It is funny how threatened the NRC gets by a $40,000 tooth survey by Dr. Mangano. The NRC pulls out all their contacts with universities and old research to try and slam him. His excess death statistics for Fukushima scare them also. Where are the infant mortality statistics for Japan for the past 20 months? Suppressed.

                    Where is the NRC tooth study? They write: “numerous peer-reviewed, scientific studies do not substantiate such claims.”

                    Am I missing something? Did they use real baby teeth to counter the Mangano study?

                    Can’t come up with one? Not surprising.

                    Let’s look at each study the NRC quotes:

                    “Cancer in Populations Living near Nuclear Facilities” 1990

                    WS: The NRC admits this 1990 NCI study is old and needs updating:

                    “Nonetheless, some communities have expressed concern about the potential impact of these releases on the health of citizens living near nuclear facilities.

                      To help address these concerns, the NRC has asked the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to perform a state-of-the-art study on cancer risk for populations living near NRC-licensed nuclear facilities. Through this NRC-sponsored study, NAS will use its expertise to update the 1990 report..”

                      WS: Next one…the infamous University of Pittsburgh 2000 study.
                      The late Bernard Cohen (aka Mr. Hormesis) helped cobble together this mishmash of distortions. Critics of this research were not kind:
                      “The University of Pittsburgh’s most recent “health study,” released on Halloween, is essentially a recitation of discredited protocol and disputed data. Re-released on October 31, 2002, the Study actually acknowledged an increase in lymphatic and blood cancers among men. However, as in previous University of Pittsburgh Studies conducted by the same group
                      of researchers (Evelynn Talbott et al; 2000),1 this survey relied on government and nuclear industry sponsored “health studies” which were completed in the early 1980s. These studies were based on inaccurate dose projections, did not factor data only available in 1985 regarding the severity and conditions of the partial-core meltdown at Three Mile Island
                      Unit-2,2 and did not factor the prevailing weather conditions and wind patterns in March-April, 1979.”

No one study is likely to prove that a particular exposure definitely causes a particular disease. No single study nor even a large number of epidemiological studies will enable a person to know why he or she developed cancer.”

                      WS: You know what? You just can’t make that up. *;-)
                      My conclusions:
                      The crappy old NRC good old boys pre-2001 research hardly qualifies as a debunking for Dr. Mangano.
                      Additionally…if strontium-90 is so low from Fukushima why did one of the few research efforts find a lot of it in Yokohama last year?

                      Part 5

                      Excerpt: “Here’s the image of the test report by Isotope Research Institute in Yokohama City:
                      Strontium-90: 195 becquerels/kg
                      Cesium-134: 29,775 becquerels/kg
                      Cesium-137: 33,659 becquerels/kg
                      Total cesium: 63,434 becquerels/kg

                      The ratio of strontium-90 to cesium-137 in this case is about 0.58%. In comparison, the same ratio from the samples taken in Fukushima Prefecture was between slightly less than 0.1% to 8.2%”
                      WS: Yokohama is 157 miles from Fukushima NPP as the crow flies. Finding strontium-90 that far away indicates things are not going well in central Japan.

                      There are three very large radioactive coriums in the ground at Fukushima Daiichi pumping out cesium, plutonium, strontium, and a thousand other radioisotopes for the next millennia.
                      Try debunking that fact.

                      Thanks Sickputer !
                      This controlled opposition has got me duped by being a supporter of Mako Oshidori and some other superficial social media things which I'll spare the details of.
                      Newsblackout had paved the way with this but I got hoodwinked back with Yuri's close relationship Mako, and also several 'interesting anti nuke articles' she posted – after which interesting friendly conversation followed.

                      'Mangano and Busby are not medical doctors' ..yes.. and I repeat → and Doctor Yamashita is.

                      *PT- Sickputer is being rhetorical there, you are missing a nuance there.

                      Oh.. my sarcasm didn't come out clear there- I meant: Dr. Yamashita ( a.k.a. Dr. Banana King) is a medical doctor.. and so that should immediately remind us of how faulty this argument is- 'if it's coming from a doctor, it should be legit.'

                      What I mean is – I agree with Sickputer, and thank you for your clarity of thought and well backed defense.
                      I'm treasuring this well written reply for life!

                    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar PraisingTruth

                      Well I praise Dr. Caldicott, Dr. Busby, and Dr. Mangano, and Dr. Sherman equally. Truth comes from different scientific fields and all these seekers and studies which illuminate the truth are equally important.

                      It was kind of funny ( altho not really when u think about the gravity of it all ) how at first TEPCO kept saying

                      'Oh – Strontium.. that stuff's just too HEAVY! Won't fly beyond the power plant'

                      'Um… we found Strontium in Yokohama..'

                      'Oh.. u silly thing ! THAT Strontium is from Chernobyl!'

                      'But.. u just said Strontium is too heavy to fly far.. but now you say it can fly all the way from RUSSIA? Which is it?'

                      We have all been called a troll or castigated at one time or another. But the bulk of good work lies in evidence in Google and interested people find it every day.

                      I've seen some other kinds of lights lately and been pretty much a laying down lurker. 11 days in the hospital, 2 major operations. I thought Fukushima fallout might have killed me (no blood pressure for a minute during the most serious vascular operation) but I pulled through. Still weak, need another month of recovery. But I have renewed interest in seeing the nucleoapes finally confess they really messed up the planet. We are all Fukushima Shock victims…

                      But I carry little rage as that just dilutes determined efforts at telling the truth about the greatest ecological disaster since the last Ice Age ten thousand years ago. Some humans will survive, even thrive. Hope it's my descendants and yours also. Survival of the smartest.

                      I'd like to add what Dr. Sternglass said about a study done by the National Cancer Institute on cancers around nuclear power plants:

                      Quoting Dr. Sternglass:

                      "…the National Cancer Institute did a study in 1990, which was so arranged and the methodology used in such a way that it was practically guaranteed to find no effects around 62 nuclear facilities"

I'm witholding any judgement until I understand the point she made in that letter. What specifically is she criticizing mangano /busby for?
                      I'm just looking for answers not accusing anybody, and not defending or pro or anti.

                      PT – I am looking for specifics here. The generalized information 'Japan is burning radioactive debris.. we're all gonna die' doesn't help.
                      You would probably agree with Yuri's report on Thyroid cancer, as I did. For example with reports such as that she's got many people like RobG to subscribe to her. I just feel alarmed that that kind of info is fed simultaneously with links like this :

                    • bo bo

                      I checked double and triple – yes, the two articles were posted with a comment of endorsement from her, saying 'Sometimes, pronuke websites have some value, I must say – they do research well IMO.'
                      This is really an important issue now, I'm not going to stop digging.

                      I could care less if it was just some pronuke spewing shill.
                      It bothers me tha it is wrapped in an antinuclear package.
                      I just talked a blogger in Japan about this and he just laughed it off : ' oooooooh SO MANY of those, w e can't even keep track. They infiltrated every group, every protest, every forum.'

                      Because Japan shipped radioactive waste all over the country for incineration, there will be a dramatic rise in birth defects all over Japan. Dr. Busby pointed out much earlier that this practice would skew the statistics for a comparison between prefectures….

                      Oh, I didn't realize the comment was in response to Sickputers strontium comment. It appeared directly beneath mine as I was trying to make a point about Yuri's double edge sword, and I it sounded completely unrelated, that is why I added the 'we're all gonna die!' – in expression of my frustration about that. I apologize.

                    • bo bo

                      PT -regarding your 'agreeing with Yuri' I was not insinuating there that you would agree with a nuclear cheerleader. I was saying, IF you had looked at JUST her her blogging work translating and helping get the word out on increasing thyroid cancer rates in Fukushima – you might have been hoodwinked, just as RobG was. It's really quite deceptive. Because it's not just someone simply going through the motions of 'pretending to be antinuke' –
                      She 'admirably' gets in there, debunks UNSCEAR and WHO's faulty standards for us, digs into Chernobyl data and breaks it down for people.. enough to make any who just looks at that to feel gratitude for her hard work, and, like RobG-feel like defending her against anyone that might raise any inkling of doubt as to her intentions (as I was doing at the beginning of this thread).

                      MOST of what she says is like that- informed, academic, and antinuclear. You have to be alert ( and also be reading her in both languages) to catch the 'WTF' pronuke comments, buried in between (like the comment about 'nuclearyesplease' site → I just dug that up yesterday, had no idea she had been posting THAT in between her highly informative tweets).

                      She's got the best activists hoodwinked, such as Mako Oshidori-and Mako's endorsement of her in return actually left me hoodwinked-or at least second guessing.

                    • bo bo

                      It all would have been simple, if I could have understood that letter she wrote to the Open Journal of Pediatrics which I saw a year ago. But because I did not have enough scientific knowledge to understand what exactly she is criticizing in that letter- I could not debunk it sufficiently, and that soon got pushed into the haze again with her prolific 'admirable' antinuke blogging that ensued and my conclusion was put off until now. I actually still don't understand that letter, but the 'nuclearyesplease' link is enough for me, so I got my answer.

                      If anybody just read her 'heroic' work reporting on thyroid cancer data in Fukushima, they propbably would think we were NUTS to question her intentions! They might even say 'you must be pronuke, to drag her down!'
                      → so I would be very careful in discussing this, making sure the details are conveyed ( reason why I am being very wordy right now as well ).

                      Further – I have a crackpot theory on this, from observing her odd comments throughout the year. I think she lives in U.S. for a reason – or at least she has this function: become the go-to person for fukushima for Americans, expose how bad it is so she gains trust as an info source.
                      Then, when these Americans ask her how it will affect the West Coast, downplay the HELL out of it. Say starfish aren't dying from fuku.Tell them it's all localized IN JAPAN, and that enenews is questionable site.

                      Just my crackpot theory.

        RobG, the article on the thyroid screening — is it like they think they are doing the population a favor? It takes them years just to do an "initial screening"? Thyroid cancers from high bursts of radiation can progress very rapidly. A lot of people might already be dead before they can be "screened." Then they tell the people with smaller tumors to just go home for two years with no medical intervention. Helen Caldicott was appalled at the lack of biopsies being done.

      Thanks.

      • Michael Deconcini desertdweller25@gmail.com. However, I just realized that he emailed me in response to something I posted about Fukushima at Natural News. He got my address from Disqus. I unfortunately mixed him up with Ken Adachi, who responded to the vicious email and denied the thyroid conditions, dead whales, dying ocean, etc. I am going to email him a detailed list. I feel bad that I got Michael mixed-up with Ken, but since this is about energy and Michael is part of an energy group who thinks nuclear is a viable option and is a defender of the industry, so be it. Everything happens for a reason. Maybe it will wake up Michael.

      Re: The 100 year mankind extinction comments made by Australian microbiologist Dr Frank Fenner in 2010.

      SP: Fenner died in late 2010, five months before the massive multiple nuclear meltdowns at one of the world's largest nuclear power megaplexes.

      Fukushima Daiichi NPP also has the unfortunate geographic location 200 meters away from an unprotected Pacific Ocean. Humans are helpless to prevent the tremendous leakage aerially and into the groundtable water. Tidal flow underneath the porous mudstone layers of Fukushima NPP every day deposits the equivalent of hundreds of Hiroshima bomb fallout particles directly into the ocean. Trillions of lower food chain Pacific ocean sea creatures have already been exterminated by this nuclear ocean and aerial onslaught.

      The extinction of carbon forms in the Northern Hemisphere can't be stopped without a massive and costly containment battle that would surpass the total military expenditures for World War II by 20 fold. 20 trillion dollars of effort might entomb Fukushima. Worker deaths would be in the millions.

      Because the nuclear enemy is invisible and easily deniable by world leaders, there is little hope for a concerted physical solution containing the Japanese nuclear power plant.

      Governments fight terrorists, not an Invisible Menace. Trillions of dollars will be secretly spent in a fruitless attempt to find the Holy Grail of radiation antidotes.

        Millionaires and billionaires have the resources to find the safest family sanctuaries on the globe. Their smart decisions the best hope for the survival of the human race. The majority of the world's humans will devolve into sick and combative mutants. More nuclear accidents will occur globally and accelerate the extinction process.

        I wish I had more optimistic predictions, but the future does look bleak. Don't shoot the messenger…he's probably already a card carrying member of the Walking Dead.

  • I put together an article on Reactor 4 meltout.

    Its not nicely organized but it seems to me that MOX in the equipment pool could have melted and rolled over to the location of the "blob"

    Check it out, send links, comment.

      Stock,
      Many thanks for your efforts to illuminate what happened ar Unit 4.

      I wanted to pass along this photo of SFP4, from the article linked below.
      The full and intact rack of new MOX fuel is clearly visable.
      MOX fuel assemblies have the distinctive handle on top.
      http://www.enviroreporter.com/2012/06/the-unforgettable-fire/all/1

      This rack of MOX, clearly, did not melt down, nor contribute to the fires at Unit 4.
      I suspect that while steaming from the SFP was an issue, before they filled it with seawater, the fires were from the equipment pool on the opposite side of the reactor.
      According to PattieB, who claimed to have talked with a worker at the site, the fires were from what she calls "Reprocessed Plutonium Fuel", not MOX, which was in two casks in the EP.

      • Ya eh, I was going to do the decay heat spreadsheet, but then got distracted on the unit 4 meltout.

        Pondering unit 4, then, the real question is, what did they do with the corium? Bulldoze it into the ocean with remote operated bulldozers, and then steel plate the land to mitigate the small pieces left behind?

        PS the decay heat calc is not easy because I cannot capture their PDF information into spreadsheet form, therefore I cannot easily do an integration or regression formula. It is amazing they don't simply present a regression, would make it so simple.

        So it takes an hour or more of tedious work to hand create a spreadsheet, if anyone is up to this let me know, its easy but tedious.

        • PhilipUpNorth PhilipUpNorth

          Stock:
          Well, clearly, they had to remove that corium from the north wall of Unit 4.
          It could have gone directly into casks.
          Do we know whether they have a portable crane on site capable of placing a cask on a truck for hauling to dry cask storage?
          (There were early calls here to mount a fuel handling, and cask handling, crane on a mobile platform, perhaps a marine crane frame.)
          That would be what I'd have done, if I had to scrape corium off the outside of a reactor building, and then put it elsewhere. 😉

  • "While the number of radioactive particles released during the explosion and subsequent fire was enormous, they came from only about five tons of the reactor fuel. Close to 200 tons of fuel — uranium and its highly radioactive fission byproducts — remain in the bowels of the destroyed building."

  • Five tons of uranium was released by Chernobyl and caused a peak ocean radiation reading of 1,000 Bq/m3.

    Fukushima caused a peak ocean reading of 180 MILLION Bq/m3.

    How much nuclear fuel was released by Fukushima in tons?

    180 million divided by 1,000 = 180,000 tons of uranium and Mox fuel was released by Fukushima.

    Is this correct?

    • There are only like 2500 tons on the whole site

      Chernobyl was far from ocean

      but 180,000 tons? Sure, the EPA data actual proves it. And the only way that much could have been blown out of the reactors and/or spent fuel pool (which are quite deep, like 40') is if the explosions came from with the vessel, from within the fuel itself, aka criticality reaction.

      http://nukeprofessional.blogspot.com/p/uranium-aerosolized-into-atmosphere.html

    • razzz razzz

      It is all very confusing but I know this much, in the chart at the link the number of fuel assemblies mentioned is not converted to their actual dead weight i.e. overall weight of the materials used to make the assemblies themselves, cladding, etc. but is converted to the weight of the actual fuel inserted inside each fuel rod. Look at the foot notes for the methodology. So, according to the chart Unit 1,2 & 3 had 69, 94 & 94 tons (2,000lbs per ton in this case) respectively of actual fuel.

      The second chart on the page shows Unit 4's fuel removed from its core to do the stainless steel shroud replacement (reflector), that was to temporarily overload the max limit of that fuel pool, was removed end of October 2010 with the great quake happening 5 months later.

      The charts raise other questions. Also, Busby did a workup on the radioactive releases, maybe ask him about it.

      http://www.cnic.jp/english/newsletter/nit154/nit154articles/03_nf.html

      The longer a fuel rod undergoes fission, the dirtier the rod becomes with daughter products and actinides. Every year refueling takes place by replacing 1/3 of the core's assemblies.

      To this day Chernobyl is still a question mark for the amount of fuel gone airborne and/or left behind. 30% is usually used for the amount gone airborne but that is a guesstimate. That core burned for 10 days. There was nothing found left in the core/kettle. Either went airborne or melted down to lower floors.

      • razzz razzz

        Then you have to consider the quality of the fuel (pellets) in the fuel rods. Typical fuel could be 4% uranium (ranges from 3% to 5%). MOX fuel contains plutonium maybe 6% (ranges 5% to 7%), how much uranium is included in that MOX mix, I don't know. Don't ask me.

        Anyway, you can see how potent or the potential of spent fuel melting down as it does not take much to ruin the environment for centuries.

        In this case, starting with 257tons/514,000lbs of melted fuel within (3) cores, not counting the uncontrolled fission that occurred after the meltdowns and melts outs which created even more manmade radionuclides. Inventories created by melts are fairly well known (without saltwater in the mix) with cesium(s) and strontium(s) being the larger amounts of the long term radioactive dangers.

        'All About Meltdowns
        Excerpts from the Reactor Safety Study (WASH-1400)
        (commonly known as the Rasmussen Report)
        published by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission 1974'
        http://www.ccnr.org/rasmussen.html#1.2

        Maybe GE knows exactly how much radioactivity was existing and was newly created and how much was released and how much is being released and how much will be released in the future.

      • Doesn't the neutron radiation ACTIVATE non radioactive stuff around the melting core, and/or the corium?

        How much stuff is turned into radioactive POISON, which is then released, on TOP OF AND IN ADDITION TO the corium itself?

        In TONS?

        We all know seawater was turned into radioactive poison and then released via buckyballs.

        How about the zirconium, the steel shell, the concrete, the soil, the water, and anything else around the melting cores?

        What kind of range does this neutron radiation have in terms of negative death transmutation power?

        Could this neutron activation effect explain the astronomically high peak ocean readings?

        • Could the cores be transmuting everything around them and increasing in size effectively, which then goes into the environment?

          Would this explain the 30,000 tons to 180,000 tons of radioactive poison which in turn caused the 180 million Bq/m3 ocean reading?

          • razzz razzz

            Ionization is what a occurs after fission has stopped. There are different types of ionizing too. They all can make another element radioactive (unbalanced). Beta/alpha particles and gamma/x-rays can be ionizing.

            ionize: To give an atom or group of atoms a net electric charge by adding or removing one or more electrons.

            Transmutation: an act or instance of transmuting or being transmuted: as
            a : the conversion of base metals into gold or silver
            b : the conversion of one element or nuclide into another either naturally or artificially

            Transmutation you would usually associate with neutrons flying around during fission striking whatever elements are present.

            'Types of radiation'

            "…Besides alpha, beta and gamma radiation, other types of particles have been found to be emitted by radioactive isotopes. Examples of these other particles are: protons, neutrons and positrons…"
            http://www.mdc.edu/kendall/chmphy/nuclear/types.htm

            There can be spontaneous fission where neutrons get loose but that is rare but does happen. Further criticalities could also happen in melted fuel but at this point, not a chain reaction (I certainly hope not).

        • Bungalow Phil Bungalow Phil

          I read 3 neutrons per fission. Ongoing spontaneous fission. Of 3 perhaps one will hit a fissionable or fissile nucleus the others will escape. Their decay will produce a proton and anti-neutrino. Depending on the the mix of fuel then and now are quite different, but plutonium was likely in the 3% range.

          Detecting the neutrons escaping can give a pretty accurate picture of the isotopes and quantity in the vessel or ex-vessel as the case maybe. Technically challenging considering the conditions.

        Doc, Razz posted this, I have seen this, and other charts, the same.

        http://www.cnic.jp/english/newsletter/nit154/nit154articles/03_nf.html

        There is a typo, Common pool says 110 tons, should be 1101tons, like the column a couple over shows.

        2500 tons. Look at the rack capacities, and what the inventory actually was, how much 'empty space' available.

        Then ask, will 20,000 tons fit? No. 8x their stated inventory, approx.

        There is some question on bundle weight, 400-600 lbs. approx.
        There are different bundles. If they were all 'big', it could raise the weight 50%.

        That chart you have is fuel 'consumption' over the plant lifetime,
        I do believe.

        • razzz razzz

          AirSepTech & Dr. Goodheart: The link Dr. G uses seems to refer to bare uranium fuel used in reactors.

          Using Unit 1 as an example, even if one entire fuel assembly weighed 400 pounds (which it does not, more like 550 pounds), 400 assemblies inside a reactor core would total 160,000 pounds/80 tons in weight. Dr. G's chart refers to yearly uranium usage as 55.79 tons which would equal about a 2/3 of the uranium core load. So they would be changing out 2/3 of the core in Unit 1 every year.

          Uranium is dense thus heavy, so to is plutonium.

          I am just trying to understand how much uranium/MOX is involved. The nuclear industry speaks in tongues. Volts, tons, decay heat, assemblies, pellets, rods. I am sure all to be purposely confusing the general public.

          What I see, is an (70%) inefficient way to boil water with much wasted heat. The waste or unburned/unused fuel is bad enough but it results in radioactive poisons with no place for safe long term storage. 60+ years of built up spent fuel storage thus far does not ensure a couple of centuries of safe storage in the future.

  • jackassrig

    The decay heat is drying up the lakes and streams. The atmosphere is getting more satuated. The atmosphere can hold only so much water and then a deluge.

  • Nick

    "What barriers provide protection from radiation produced by a nuclear power plant?
    The radioactive material that fuels a nuclear power plant is contained in ceramic fuel pellets that are capable of withstanding thousands of degrees of heat. These fuel pellets are then encased in hollow metal rods that help keep the material from interacting with the water that cools the reactor. In addition, the reactor's thick metal walls and piping, as well as a massive reinforced concrete containment structure, are designed to keep the coolant, fuel, and associated radiation isolated from the environment."

    http://www.nrc.gov/about-nrc/radiation/related-info/faq.html

    Isolated from the environment. Yup, in an ideal world most nuclear reactor cores are isolated from the environment.

    Not so with what used to be one of the world's largest nuclear electrical generating plants. Instead we have 3 awol reactor cores sizzling and puffing lethal doses of radiation into our precious biosphere.

    Atmospherically.

    Aqueously.

    Everytime someone jostles the mess, rads are discharged more vigorously.

    Ever wonder why nuclear plants "vent"? Because they need to, yet ionizing radiation escapes containment as a gas, etc. During a refueling (my jostle image) operators must plan on a vent to release pent up gaseous discharges, causing a temporal spike in ambient rad levels around the plant.

    Fukushima was designed with enormous vent stacks.

    • razzz razzz

      Mainly purified water and boron keep fuel rods in check. Water cools and shields and boron absorbs neutrons.

      Fissioned nuclear fuels in reactor cores and spent fuel pools are constantly decaying. While operating, while cooling down there is always a creation of daughter products going on esp. more during any start up or shut down procedures which results in venting.

      Radioactive venting is supposed to be filtered before release (like being sent up the tall exhaust stacks) but it can not all be contained or captured i.e. tritium and gases so limits are set for 'acceptable' amounts of manmade radioactive releases.

      As you now know, a complete loss of containment of a nuclear core or cores, nothing can be done to stop radioactive releases. Controlled maybe, completely stopped not possible. Manmade radioactive releases once in the wild are then considered to add to background radiation levels.

  • Nick

    It is the great con of nuclear energy that radiation remains contained during "normal" operations.

    Fukushima is and will be our nightmare forever.

    But the plant has been venting nasty shit for years, only now it is beyond what any computer-risk assessment model run anticipated.

    It's called uncharted waters.

    No mapping of the corium today, tomorrow, or yesterday, will do one IOTA
    of good for planet Earth.

    I know it sucks.

    But for me to happily and blissfully go on with my life while an ELE is transpiring goes against my very genetic and biological self.

    Therefore, while I still have some semblance of sanity (although folks might debate that!) left, I choose to scratch out what ever nano-bits of truth I can glean about just what sort of hell we have unleashed at Fukushima.

    I spoke to a linear-accelerator technical team the other day, and they didn't seem to think my idea of a "rip in spacetime" to be too far from the truth as to what is going on under Fukushima.

    Again, wrap your head around the idea that we are in the land we were never meant to be in, not for millions of reactor operating years.

    Doesn't matter one twit that "the industry has learned the lessons of Fukushima".

    Safety is certainty.

    We are not safe, and of that I am certain.

    CONCLUSIONS

    Reactor-grade plutonium with any level of irradiation is a potentially ex-plosive material.

    The difficulties of developing an effective design of the most straightforward type are not appreciably greater with reactor-grade plutonium than those that have to be met for the use of weapons-grade plutonium.

    The hazards of handling reactor-grade plutonium, though somewhat greater than those associated with weapons-grade plutonium, are of the-same type and can be met by applying the same precautions. This, at least,would be the case when fabricating only a modest number of devices. Fora project requiring an assembly line type of operation, more provisions for remote handling procedures for some stages of the work might be required than would be necessary for handling weapons-grade material or for handling a limited number of items.

    Herricka only gets left-overs from the table. She does not get fed regularly. That might sound cruel to some people, but you have to bear in mind that Herricka is a stray cat, and there's no shortage of wildlife food around here, even in the winter. That's her job, to keep down the vermin.

    Anyhows, the downside of this is that Herricka often brings her catches into the house, and always first drops them at your feet, as if you'd want to eat a bloody mouse or vole or whatever. This evening Herricka brought in quite a large mouse, that was still quite alive. Normally she kills and eats them within a matter of minutes. This evening she played with it for ages (nature is so cruel), whilst I was sitting at my desk, and then the half dead mouse shot up my trouser leg in an effort to escape. Doing a shaking dance didn't remove the mouse and eventually I had to take my trousers off to remove the mouse. As I type this Herricka is still chasing the bloody thing around my office.

    Crunch, crunch, crunch, she's finally put the mouse out of its misery, leaving me pondering on the meaning of life, the universe and everything…

    Beyond the saddest of days are upon us my friends
    as I ponder when "they" will power
    the npp's with the mutations.

    This is NOT the world that any of us
    have envisioned for our children!

    Communications is power. When the crap hits fan in the next couple of months, if the public gets out of control, the US armed forces have orders to cut internet communications. I do not know how this will be carried out, but the scouts in the cities and the techies how know the systems work and are drawing up the plans now.

    This is insidious and many sites like this will be dormant. Get it off your chest know because you will wake up one morning soon and hell will be awakened and you'll be alone. Not 'if' , but 'when'.

    Really, dead Pacific Ocean, Major state out of water, racial tensions rising, Terrorist in back yard, illegals flooding the streets, Russian and China expansion and aggression, Japanese collapse, heavy radiation contamination in NA ecosystem, debt so high it is about to burst, ISIS takeover of middle east, GMO and chemicals freely distributed in food products, medical insurance about to collapse, an idiot president with purely political motives and NWO planning big push after collapse.

    Anyone else find some reference to pouring concrete pads at Fukushima?

    There is a picture and description out there… HUGE concrete pad poured out in the middle of Fukushima site, for no reason.. then they ran roads over it.

    Maybe a recent satellite photo would show it?

  • Police sources said bodies within the 12-mile evacuation zone around the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant had been 'exposed to high levels of radiation after death'.
    It follows the discovery of a body on Sunday in Okuma, just three miles from the power plant, which revealed elevated levels of radiation.
