Arnie Gundersen, former nuclear engineer (emphasis added), Feb 2, 2017: “When I went to school, the saying was ‘dilution is the solution to pollution,’ and that’s what the Japanese believe. If they dump [radioactive water from Fukushima Daiichi] on their side and it floats over to the West Coast of the U.S. — the Pacific’s a big place — it’ll dilute out. I don’t think that’s appropriate… people are going to die. Regardless of how low the radiation is, it does cause cellular damage and cancer. So if you spread it out in a big body of water, the concentration goes down, but on the other hand, you’ve got a couple billion people exposed to it because they’re on the edge of that big body of water. So the concentration is down but the population is up and you’re still going to get cancer; it’s inevitable.”

Dr. Helen Caldicott, Feb 13, 2017: As the water flows beneath the damaged reactors, it immerses the three molten cores and becomes extremely radioactive as it continues its journey into the adjacent Pacific Ocean. Every day since the accident began, 300 to 400 tons of water has poured into the Pacific where numerous isotopes including cesium 137, 134, strontium 90, tritium, plutonium, americium and up to 100 more, enter the ocean and bio-concentrate by orders of magnitude at each step of the food chain… tuna, salmon and other species found on the American west coast now contain some of these radioactive elements… [Fukushima Daiichi] will continue to pour water into the Pacific for the rest of time

Fox News, Feb 8, 2017: Adam Housley, who reported from the area in 2011 following the catastrophic triple-meltdown, said… small levels of radiation are still being detected off the coasts of California and Oregon and scientists fear it could get worse. “The worry is with 300 tons of radioactive water going into the Pacific every day, what is that doing to the Pacific Ocean?” said Housley…

Fox News video transcript excerpts, Feb 8, 2017: Nearly 300 tons of radioactive water is dumped into the Pacific Ocean each and every day… There is still radiation being detected off the west coast of California and Oregon… The worry is with 300 tons of radioactive water going in every day to the Pacific — what is that doing to the Pacific Ocean?… We really don’t know what this radioactive water is doing to the Pacific I think a lot of people are very concerned about that…. As we know that water moves toward the west coast of the US.”

  • Yes, 300 tons of radioactive water a day .. The knowledge that they are not able to because of its Store in a year is 300 x 365 = 110 000 tonnes per year, or one tanker .. 5 years is 0.5 milona tons of radioactive water .. what they could do this in such quantities .. good to know that nothing,, ..

    "I don’t think that’s appropriate… people are going to die."
    – Arnie Gundersen, former nuclear engineer

    It's not just people!

    Coming up on 6 YEARS.

    I know there have been many who have commented here over the years that were directly affected. Some are no longer here.

    When it hits home, when the doctors say, "I Have some bad news for you", then it's too late to think about FALLOUT Mitigation or why our leaders have outright lied, if they say anything at all, to protect an inept corrupt Nuclear Industry (cartel).

    Will the masses of people ever realize 'the truth', 'the realization' of what has happened and what is going on. I don't know. Some might say they don't want to know. I would disagree and say everyone needs to know what's really happened and what's REALLY going to happen.

    Fukushima nuclear disaster evacuees 'pressured' to return to contaminated homes, says Greenpeace

    Even though radiation levels in a village near the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster still exceed international guidelines, its evacuated residents are being coerced to return, according to a Greenpeace report. .

    …"It's a violation of human rights to force people into such a situation because they haven't done anything wrong, it's the operator of the power plant responsible for the damage it caused," said Smital.

    "It's very clear that there's very serious damage to the property and the lifestyle of the people but the government doesn't care about this."

    An Underground Frozen Wall extends around Units1-4 to a depth of 100'.
    Freezing of the ground was completed only recently.
    The total flow of the underground river under the reactor complex is put at 1,000 tonnes per day.
    The "300 tonnes per day" figure was the amount of groundwater flowing directly underneath Units1-3, plus the escape of cooling water from reactors and containments that went uncaptured.
    The real damage to the Pacific Ocean was that groundwater was encountering up to 3 ex-reactor-building coria, leaching isotopes, and flowing directly into the Pacific Ocean.

    It is likely that the "300 tonnes" figure isn't happening anymore, and the spokespeople for our movement should drop using this figure going forward.

    Today, the same 1,000 tonnes of groundwater is flowing around the underground frozen wall, and into the sea.
    But the load of leaching corium in that 1,000 tonnes of groundwater is now very low.
    The damage to the Pacific Ocean has nevertheless been immense.
    What we are now seeing is the destruction of the Ecosystem from 5 years of unrestricted outflow of 300 tonnes perday of groundwater washing corium into the sea.

      “Ice Wall” (the landside impermeable wall)

      The report also summarizes developments during the quarter in the freezing of the “ice wall” – actually a frozen soil barrier designed to isolate the four damaged reactor buildings from groundwater flows. It reports that the frozen state of the soil is being maintained, and that the amount of water pumped up daily has declined from 400 cubic meters to 140 cubic meters.

      Earthsmith asks: "…where are the corium?"
      Great question!
      Answer: It depends on the state of the corium right now.

      1. The corium might be in a blob inside of the reactors. However…
      Muon imagery of the reactors indicates that almost none of the melted fuel remains.
      2. The corium might be in a pile in the pedestal floor underneath the reactors.
      There would be roiling steam in the pedestal videos. Videos show only whispy steam.
      The corium is clearly no longer within containment.
      3. The corium might be in a blob in the earth below the reactor buildings.
      Perhaps, but unlikely. Here's why:
      Active molten corium forms a crust on the outside of the blob, somewhat insulating the corium.
      Or, once outside of the reactor building, corium might spread out, following cracks or layers in the mudrock, and cooling as it spread out.
      However, for almost 5 years, there have been many spikes in levels of Iodine131, an isotope indicating ongoing fission, found in sewage sludge, as far away as Tokyo.
      This would indicate that the corium is in a blob, which melted its way deep into the Earth.
      ENEnewser PattiB posted on this site that workers at the plant reported the corium at a depth of 2km as early as 2012.
      It is now clear that the underground frozen wall is actually able to freeze the mudrock to a depth of 100' completely surrounding Units1-4.
      Does anybody truly believe that the ground could freeze, if there was any corium actually within the 100' deep…

      • PhilipUpNorth PhilipUpNorth

        (sorry the word count cut off the last sentence, but you get my point.)
        The corium MUST have remained in a blob, in order for continuous fissioning to have occurred during the first five years. As proven by repeated spikes in Iodine131, an isotope with a half life of 8 days.

        And the blobs MUST have descended below the 100' depth of the frozen wall, or else the mudrock would have been impossible to freeze to that depth.

        Conclusion:
        Builders of the sarcophagus floor, at the 100' depth, will encounter 3 corium lava tubes, under Units1-3.
        These lava tubes will have to be filled with borated grout, as deep as they go, in order to sequester the corium from the aquifer, and from the Biosphere.

        BTW, I can post links, in case any new ENEwesers can't find them in Google or in the ENEnews Search function. I will monitor replies to this post for 2 days.

        Tepco: The uppers still want to know: "Where is da damn corium, eh?"

        • "The corium MUST have remained in a blob"

          I think it's clear that units 1 and 2 are chewed bubblegum blobs in the ground…

      My understanding was that 400 tons leaked into the reactor buildings. That would be the areas around the torus and perhaps into the torus and also lower part of the primary containment. The explosions didnt just blow off the tops of the buildings, they ruptured the torus structures, perhaps in all four buildings. This indicates perhaps a very dynamic steam explosion scenario.

      The location of corium. In unit 3, the lid bolts stretched and explosive microscopic aerosols composed of fuel and reactor wall left the building. The remaining corium may be splattered thinly around the bulb shaped primary containment. Similarly in unit 2, the corium may be spread thin, and not be visible by muon scans. A portion of corium probably pooled at the bottom and re-melted, melting down into the concrete base. This study indicates that water would be effective in solidifying the corium. Its likely that much of the corium is solidified on the walls, in the base, and if some melted all the way through th 25 ft of concrete basemat, it met the soggy aquifer and solidified.

        Code, the base mat is not 25 ft. but more on the order of 7ft. to 14ft. in thickness. My past posts noted that this type of BWR was 12ft. along with weights of said base. (no citations)

        …"the concrete containments can be on the order of 40 m to 50 m in diameter and 60 m to 70 m high, with wall and dome thicknesses from 0.9 m to 1.4 m, and base slab thicknesses from 2.7 m to 4.1 m"

          thanks Cooter. Base thickness from 2.7 to 4.1 meters. In the GE mark one, they would have had to back fill the area under the containment…in the centroid of the torus, in order to make the base mat that shallow

          http://clubtroppo.com.au/files/2011/03/GE_BWR_Containment_Diagram.jpg

          • Cooter

            Code,
            "..they would have had to back fill the area under the containment..".

            The base mat is the entire footing, so to speak, for the entire plant. From this rises the walls and all other infrastructure's. Looking at the drawing you linked too shows an gigantic concrete block which goes against the principles of a "base mat". You don't and wouldn't want this weight when the base mat holds up everything above. In other pictures I've looked at there is a door way leading into this area, further proving this mass of concrete doesn't exist.

            The PV sits on a ring/collar which is part of the structural supporting walls and below that is the access grating as shown. So logically there is a distance below this grating which is ? deep. Then the access door below this and comes into play which would extend this depth.

            The question then is; What would contain a catastrophic melt down of the reactor? Is it the base mat? Did they infill a central portion of this area with rock and place a concrete slab on top, to save weight? Or is the base mat the containment?

            The base mat IS the entire structural footing for the entire plant and any unnecessary weight goes against the grain of engineering.

            Where's the corium? All you have to do is open the access door under the PV and take a peek.

            Thanks ENE for coming back on line and good to see that SP's death was exaggerated.

          • Cooter

            Searched a lot and only came up with a some what reasonable depiction of the dry well bulb. The picture shows that inside the bulb there is concrete just laying in the bottom head and below that is an concrete embedment on top of a thick base mat. Maybe there is 25 feet of concrete. Other drawings I looked at showed a space underneath it. ???

        Yeah I agree unit 3 went up, down, and all around. But the blobs from 1 and 2? The excellent work of the webcam folks points to continual steam events and like PUN said constant presence of Iodine 131 means they are doing something. Chaffing,scaling,flaking or just in a bunch pieces in more locations than one can imagine. Seismic activity, typhoons, then just sprinkle a little TEPCO on top and voila!

        • Fukushima is still undergoing active fission out of anyone's control!!!

          We know this, the I-131 and other releases show it beyond any doubt…

          Even simpler to understand is the fact that the water can't get to the center of a blob. So the center of the larger blobs will fission actively for AT LEAST the next 100 years or more.

          Highly unstable, and alkali metals react with water (especially sea water) when super heated.

          The water's primary job at this point is to dilute the seawater to prevent a electrolyte explosion and to insulate the gasses to some degree from the air. Cooling at this point is a secondary mission compared to the first 2 points mentioned…

          For anyone that thinks fission may have stopped (code) think about this…

          You place a ceramic frying pan on the stove and heat it up as hot as the stove will make it, then you put it in a sink full of water…

          …How long does the pan take to cool completely to room temp? 1 or 2 minuets? So the pan itself was hot but was not producing any heat, it's just hot and cools very quickly under water.

          The blobs at Fuku are still undergoing massive fission so they produce the heat and will not be cooled to any real degree for 100 years. Where's the heat coming from? The blobs are still creating it from the massive fission still going on.

          Should be a very easy to understand example…

          Undeniably out of control fission is occurring at FUKU and will for a very long time…

        • Unit 3 is a even scarier subject…

          We all have seen the explosion in unit three, plutonium and other fuel rod fragments were found 2 miles away…

          Only unit 3 had the plutonium fuel and none of it was reported to be in the fuel pool at the time of the explosion…

          So if it was a fuel pool explosion as some have guessed where did the plutonium come from? Ejected 2 miles away?? Like being shot out of a cannon??

          Seems to me it (reactor 3) blew the containment due to the plutonium fuel (many experts have warned about this possibility) and shot the core into the environment…

          Take a look at this cutaway photo…

          http://s637.photobucket.com/user/kbman37/media/637px-BWR_Mark_I_Containment_cutaway.jpg.html

          Now compare it to the actual explosion…

          https://youtu.be/9k3Ofs6R9cg

          So it makes sense that you would see the initial explosion by the fuel pool as the wall between the pool and the reactor lid is thinner than the slab covering the top…

          A scary thing to think about but I think the evidence supports the lid blowing…

          Any thoughts?

          • theworldisalie theworldisalie

            Arnie Found plutonium all over the place in japan, he said this disaster is Chernobyl on steroids.

            I also seem to remember hearing that the Japanese military was being sent around to pick up fuel pellets with large levels of plutonium in them scattered about several km's away throughout the country side.

            I do believe that a lot of fuel got vaporized and spewed out and fuel pellets got scattered all over the place.

            Last pic on the right. See the hole?

            No go find a TEPCO says look here picture of the lid on #3.

            In place, with a giant chip on the edge, covered haphazardly. No, it was there, honest.

            It's obvious. I wonder where they found it…

          • So the most obvious and simple explanation (tends to be the truth most of the time) would be that the reactor went super critical from the mox fuel, blew the refueling hatch a split second before launching at least part of the core straight up…

            Flame on the side of the building and then the launch of materials came from the CENTER of that building!!!

            Seems if you look at the slow motion portion of the video above a round plate like object appears to be falling from almost the top of the mushroom cloud…

            This video would support the launch of the top of the containment and it travels high into the cloud and falls back…

            Not saying definitively that's the case but have zoomed it and this appears to be a round metallic object flying through the air at extremely high speed… Rounded and unbroken, concrete just doesn't behave like that…

            I also think we already know that we are not being told the truth about the condition of reactor 3 (not that anything can get close enough to know for sure at this time)…

            • Jebus Jebus

              Maybe, but the concrete blocks they stack up to plug the containment vessel, the big round cement plug, are stacked in like a chinese puzzle. They start as pieces.

              The evidence suggests that a large chunks of those blocks flew.

              Just by looking at the hole.

              My guess is that the RPV bolted on lid, the bright yellow lid, is broken and lifted off it's stretched bolts some.

              I dont think it got away…

              • Jebus Jebus

                That supports an instantaneous criticality of enough core mass to displace some volume and pop the top.

                It wasnt because there was no more compression area inside the RPV. Like with a waterhammer.

                Wasn't it dry? Molten pooling of enough plutonium?

                Otherwise, it would have slumped out the colander part of the RPV on the bottom…

                Like 1 and 2…

                • I totally agree Jebus the explosion says it all, that one didn't go out to the sides like 1 and 2, it was the wrong color and displaced large chunks of debree…

                  Had to originate in a compressed space, the fuel pool just would NOT have had enough compression to excite the materials to the point of a detonation…

                  It's the difference between pouring a pound of gunpowder in a line and lighting it, it just fizzles because there is no pressure… Place the same charge in a metal container and allow the pressures to build and the explosion would kill you…

                  A line of gunpowder poured onto the ground? Lots of white smoke dispersing horizontally…

                  Put the same amount in a metal can? Black smoke and a big boom…

                  The compression prior to rupture created the detonation!!!

                  It's hard to believe some of these so called experts could do a interview telling us it (unit 3 explosion) was not the reactor blowing and keep a straight face.

              • I don't think the entire lid blew off either…

                I believe a portion did after becoming super heated.

                I think that a circular (almost molten) section of the lid blew and there is a hole (the one in the photo you posted) that goes strait through to the reactor core.

                The ring portion of the lid stayed in place but a portion of the dome got hot to the point of weakness. It would be circular from even heating.

                I'm not saying the entire lid blew off, just a center portion where the metal was thinnest. Would be near the top of the assembly and probably offset slightly from the absolute center.

                If you've ever played around with dry ice and a soda bottle (don't try this at home) you've seen the lid partially blow, add uneven heating and you'd get a portion of the weakest point blow slightly offset and exit the rest of the cap.

                This theory works when compared with the cloud ring geometries seen above unit 3…

                …slightly offset towards the fuel pool exiting while the other side fragmented and drained the equipment pool.

                The fuel pool survived because the materials left the scene at such high speeds while the low side of the breech probably dropped heavy pieces of concrete and steel at low speed into the bottom of the equipment pool draining it…

                Again just a guess, but it makes good practical sense.

                • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

                  I recall that the bolt stretch was a known phenomenon. Variations in pressure were described by Gundersen as being due to the pressure relief of this action. That means the pressure would have released by bolt stretching before a molten circular piece of reactor lid blew off. Didnt you hve a different theory before? An access port. It made more sense

            • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

              The concrete plugs are indeed in place. No ejection straight up. When the bolts stretched, they released the pressure. But the super hot explosive fuel seems to have gone into both pools which acted like short barrel cannons. A steam and pyrophoric explosion. The force was enough to permanently deform the equipment pool and the whole works, what to say of sheering off the containment columns. Some of the spent fuel must have been ejected. Its amazing any fuel or water stayed in the spent fuel pool. However the eqpmt pool drained

    400 tons a day???? I don't see how that can be possible.
    It takes 21,000 gallons a minute to cool a normal reactor.
    That equates to apx. 114,545 tons of water a day.
    Multiply that by 3 meltdowns not including fuel pools it comes
    to 343,636 tons per day. That does not include the added water from the mountains and all the other radioactive runoffs from the surrounding landscape and river beds.

      Speaking of energy, 1 nuclear decay event produces 5Mev of power to the surrounding molecules (alpha). In the case of an isotope that captures an electron, a deeply penetrating form of energy is produced (gamma), tho it is less ionizing. Eventually, the energy contributions of decaying isotopes in our ocean will mean increases temps and production of water vapor. Advise humans to plan ahead for this increase.

    PhilipUpNorth :

    One of the men who worked on the tracking of the coriums in the ground… before he quit in frustration over the mess, said publicly that #3's was down over 4km into the earth as of April 2012.

    The other two are not moving as fast and are not as hot due to less Plutonium being present in the mixture.

    That's the facts.

    Recovery of them…? Not likely !! Yes, they have much debris still down in there from its passage, but that's about it. Water was about the worst thing available to pour on the cores at post-meltdown.

    I have one question if the corium is 4 kilometers deep, if so the heat in the rock would be about a 1000 degrees?, would that not have a effect on corium, cause recriticality?, and since Japan is close to plate boundaries the temp of rock at that depth could be higher.
    Anybody thought about that.

    The temperature rises about 25C for every kilometer of depth so it it is nowhere near 1000.

    • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

      PattieB was interesting…some knowledge, perhaps sincere, but very hard to pin down. 4 kilometers deep by 2012? By now 8 km or more? The best deep earth repository possible. Maybe its the answer to the worlds nuclear waste problem; just let em melt down. (sarc)

    • AirSepTech AirSepTech

      4km in 13 months? 1000ft a month average?

      It would lose much mass as it travels, wouldn't it?

      So many 1000's the first few months, tapering off in time/distance.

    The news is controlled by the 1 percent that own all the Nuclear Power Plants. There not going to report on anything having to do with Fukushima. Even if people started dropping like flies they will blame it on a terrorist virus. Probably why Bill Gates just stated that 30 million people will die because of a similar scenario.

    • Just added the update below update to, "The Pacific Ocean is Dying".

      http://sccc.org.au/the-pacific-ocean-is-dying

      Added Update:

      The information in this question posted on Armstrong Economics, points to widespread censorship of scientific research, on the effects of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe on the Pacific Ocean.

      Quote:

      "I have just returned from visiting my friend, who is a senior cetacean biologist at one of the large west coast universities. While there, he described an amazing situation to me that has alarmed me greatly. He said that research at his university has conclusively identified the complete or almost complete collapse of several dozen food chains within the Pacific Ocean, all within the last 36 months or so.

      Further, in “unauthorized” exchanges with the relevant departments in other coast universities, he learned that the numbers involved may well be more like hundreds of chain collapses in the same timeframe as opposed to dozens. Finally, in talking with authoritative figures in Vancouver, they apparently believe that the figure is likely closer to 1000."

      https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/nature/has-the-extinction-cycle-also-turned-against-us/

      • Another Quote:

        "As bad as all of this sounds, here is the real rub. Regarding these findings about food chain collapses, mutations, and injuries, my friend’s university has instituted a policy that forbids them from publishing their findings, from discussing their findings (on this subject) publicly or in private with other researchers outside their own campus, or finally from taking “unauthorized” radiation readings as part of their research. The penalties for violating these new rules are severe: loss of tenure, civil lawsuits for violation of contract, and potentially employment termination."

  • RonM RonM

    Concerning he Pacific ocean food chain destruction, that's the bad news the good news is that without a food chain the radiation won't bio-accumulate any further.

    Isn't a big earthquake just about due I recall an ENENEWS article several years ago saying that the probability of 8 scale earthquake in the Fukushima area was about 7 years?

    Good thing that billions of tons of water is entering the oceans because of glaciers, arctic ice, antarctic ice shelves, Greenland and Iceland and other arctic lands, mountain top ice etc..

    might extend the total ocean life death spiral a decade or so longer than expected and climate change and sea level rise might beat Fukushima out as the ELE

                    I think the mushroom cloud from unit 3 is primarily thermal convection, caused by a secondary explosion in the pools when super heated reactor aerosols were vented into them

                    • All the verified videos of this explosion show a flash out of the side of the building (kaboom) transfer hatch blowing through.

                      And then a unbelievable launch of concrete (and stuff) straight up…

                      Straight up! Giant chunks of concrete flying through the air…

                      The roofs were thin metal like a lawnmower building roof designed to blow off so where did the concrete chunks come from?

                      Straight up??? Over the explosion not beside or under or to the left or to the right anywhere but over it.

                      it could be that the explosion, the mushroom cloud, is mainly radioactive water. Take into consideration the back lighting. Personally, I dont see big chunks of concrete…it all pretty much disintegrates before it hits the ground. Yes, lots of big heavy stuff went flying. But the aerial view tells the story. Its the two pools and probably the steam condenser units

    "The Japanese government is encouraging evacuees from Fukushima to return to the nuclear disaster site despite dangerous levels of radiation, according to a report released by Greenpeace.
    The Fukushima prefecture is planning to cut housing support for evacuees starting 31 March, when the evacuation order for the 6,000 residents of the village of Iitate is due to be lifted. This is despite radiation levels comparable to Chernobyl’s exclusion zone, a report from Greenpeace Japan has found."

    Arnie mentioned detonating a nuke in the atmosphere that would destroy the system but leave everything else. So all the npps would blow. This would be a relatively quick end to the human insanity.

    It might be better than a slow death from radiation in the cancer wing under the present system and time table. It would definitely be better than what I watched both my parent die from alzheimer's which was most likely caused by industrial pollution.

    One advantage of an atmospheric detonation would be that even those in charge of this mad house would be unprepared or not in the safely of their subterranean mansions. Please excuse my spelling but I'm frothing.

      A large solar event or tactical EMP would destroy our delicate power grid, it would be mass chaos and result in long term station blackouts at our nuclear plants. The Spent fuel pools would all boil off and then we would have many millions of Chernobyl's released into the environment.

      It would likely kill everything in short order.

        I don't think so, there is a two week generator fail safe in which case "all hands on deck" and then shut those s.o.b.'s down. Simply shut them down. Solar or whatever for auxiliary power for whatever must be powered in the longer term interim. I think it's a delusion by design that those things can't simply be powered down because if you can power them up you certainly can power them down.

              I’m no expert but I have learned a lot reading this site and the comments these last 4 years.

              The way I understand it, in two weeks they can kinda/sorta shut the main reactor down. The problem then would be the spent fuel pools. No way to shut those down. No electricity, no cooling water and poof.

              Perhaps someone here can help me out – do I have this right?

        • CodeShutdown CodeShutdown

          The problem is the emergency generators. If they get fried, then there is no cooling which leads to 30 Fukushimas

          • Dazy Dazy

            Yes, and that is truly the problem from an emergency perspective. We need to have some sort of authorization of control as a public to deal with what will be a certain eventuality, meltdown plus our current issue of handling the containment (I won't use the word disposal because that is an unrealistic word regarding nuclear waste). It's unfair that we are affected without regard.

    History will show Arnie Gunderson and Helen Caldicott knew they where lying when they claimed reactor 3 and reactor 4 fuel pools are at the top of the buildings that do not exist .

    Arnie Gunderson made the assemblies for those pools so its impossible for him to claim he did not know better . Considering how often both of them refuse to acknowledge harm to the pacific ocean , its hard to reconcile why they get the spotlight so often .

    Do you really think they lied, Dana? Knowingly perpetrated?

    If Russia is doing nuke testing , then a typical test would show aprox. a 4.4 quake on the world map. If we were to look at past quakes, it might be an actual signature of a test, someone might research this, and if its a smaller nuke, it would be less than 4.4 . perhaps above Poland. Does anyone remember several tears ago that Russia said the US had detonated a nuke in the ocean several hundred miles off the coast of the Carolinas, I think it was specifically off of Charleston S C and I had seen the 4.4 on USGS quake map at that location, Just an averted false flag event by the O-POTUS , by the same generals probably that are trying to save us now !

        Facebook demanded I fax them a government-issued ID to prove I was legit when I posted Fukushima! Fukushima! news.

        Why did they not ask my friends?

        Since then, I created a new account, posted two articles about Fukushima, refuse all friend request and let Facebook harass me with emails asking things like, "Do you know ______?" Totally off the wall blizzard of names of people I never heard of…. after awhile, I requested they stop.

        Never "friend" a person you don't know very well. If you met them on Facebook, that is not a friend and could be a pro-nuker buddying up. Maybe if you friend someone, they get the right to call your ID into question.

        Real friends you can visit in person and alienate them with doom prophecy. Worked for me — until I joined Facebook. Then, those same friends did not like me souring the atmosphere and wrecking social political relationships.

        So now, you might find my Facebook page. Have at it. All you will get is a pointer to Enenews, my "free speech zone" but not know who I am unless you read all my old posts. By the time someone figures out if they know me, they will have had an ENEducation

    • Trump is pro nuclear. He is authoritarian.

      Anyone opposed to nuclear should not have a voice or a platform, because they are an 'enemy of the people'.

      Thus, they should all be blocked or shut down, according to Trump think.

      Enenews and AGR may soon disappear

      AGR is being partially blocked.

      Congrats to all those who support Trump…

      • Isthmus

        I'm speculating the when Trump said anyone opposed to nuke should not have a platform and he has to remain committed to nuke simply because it has always been whoever has first strike capability and can survive, then the nuke war can happen, now Russia alluding to first strike capability , today said that they have changed the balance of power by having their intercontiental (typo) nuke missles on their borders, which means their nuke missles are closer to targets than ours, chech RT today. Sounds serious but Russia does not know our capability, which is why Obama moved into Ukraine,yes he started that just like he and H took down Kadafi started the mess , the product of Obama always was to have war. Remember Trump said " until they come to their senses about Nukelear we have to have them " .

    There are and have been many academics and scientists who have told the truth about how great is the catastrophe of Fukushima. Arnie Gunderson has used his expertise to close down nuclear energy plants and has documented how expensive is nuclear energy and problems with the new AP1000 which bankrupted Toshiba.

    Dr. Helen Caldicott's educational and political efforts kept any new nuclear power plants in the US from being built for 30 years.

    All the nuclear engineers and nuclear physicists turned whistleblowers, medical doctors and researchers and scientists are the ones that can stop the building of new nuclear power plants. It is impossible without them. To unfairly criticize Arnie and Dr. Caldicott is totally inexcusable.

    To promote information that is blatently false is no help to the anti-nuke movement. Dana Durnford should apologize for his criticism of these two people and also for falsely claiming that a M5.9 earthquake in Japan, 50 miles from Fukushima Daiichi, on Dec. 28, 2016, was really a 9.0 earthquake. Where is the credibility? All ethical journalists correct their errors.

        “…Most reactors began construction by 1974; following the Three Mile Island accident in 1979 and changing economics, many planned projects were canceled. More than 100 orders for nuclear power reactors, many already under construction, were canceled in the 1970s and 1980s, bankrupting some companies.

          I have great respect for Dr. Helen Caldicott and for all the scientists who share their scientific knowledge about the health dangers of radiation and who are working to stop the nuclear technology from destroying all life on earth.

          It is one thing to make money off the tragic accident of Fukushima. They knew ahead of time that numerous safety checks had failed at Fukushima. They knew ahead of time about the terrible geology of Fukushima. They knew ahead of time about the terrible earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan. They knew ahead of time about all the many nuclear accidents in Japan and around the world. They knew ahead of time that radiation is lethal.

                  Communication is difficult online because someone says something and maybe another person has read it or maybe not, or maybe someone says something and it is misunderstood or not.

                  The subject matter of this website is the worst catastrophe and maybe an ELE and that also makes communication difficult.

                  Code has already said that he will never forgive me and he like to communicate that over and over again. In one way he is communicating extremely well.

                  I once said to Code that I would tell him why I think he seems unkind so many times. All children want and need to be loved, and some need to constantly test the waters if they didn't find assurance in other circumstances. I never studied psychology. I just have experience as my teacher. So maybe Code wants to be forgiven a million times and that's all he seeks, and it is my nature and experience to do that. Sometimes it is easier than other times. He is very sexy and attractive. But, alas I am very old and I find life easier to avoid all sexual temptations. I actually like studying plasma physics and want to understand the universe.

    "Every day since the accident began, 300 to 400 tons of water has poured into the Pacific"

    Has anyone confirmed this number ever?

    This figure is bandied about very freely and seems accepted by all. If this is a TEPCO number, I would say it is probably an underestimate by a factor of 10?

    "THE operator of Japan’s stricken Fukushima nuclear plant said yesterday it will craft a plan this summer to extract highly radioactive fuel from the damaged reactors — a key step in decommissioning work expected to take decades.

    Operator Tokyo Electric Power Co and Japan’s government have struggled to clean up the world’s worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986.

    On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 undersea earthquake off Japan’s northeastern coast sparked a massive tsunami that swamped cooling systems and triggered three reactor meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

    Radiation spread over a wide area and forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate — many of whom are unlikely to ever return.

    TEPCO invited foreign journalists to the site for an update on clean-up efforts ahead of the sixth anniversary of the disaster. Shunji Uchida, top on-site engineer, said important data had been obtained from recent camera probes which detected radiation levels inside the No. 2 reactor at record highs."

  • Stating it is their mission to “defend democracy,” the Jeff (Bilderberger, CIA Contractor, and owner of Amazon) Bezos’ run Washington Post (which has been caught recently and been forced to retract completely fake news) has adopted a dramatic new slogan which it claims was not in any way inspired by President Trump: “Democracy Dies in Darkness”.
    ———————————
    stock here: so basically this disgusting arm of propaganda of the establishment/NWO is trying to create the narrative that keeping their paper open somehow supports democracy.

    I see a return to a "responsibility law" under which journalists could be prosecuted for intentionally producing "fake new"

    NYT is trying similar tactics. This shit is going to blow up in their faces, me hopes.

    At a time when everyone is wondering where the coriums of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant may be, it is interesting to know the nature of the terrain where they could possibly be hiding. Although all documents used to write this article are readily available, most are in Japanese and this explains that to date knowledge of the geology of Fukushima is fragmented. Based on the geological survey that was conducted prior to building the plant, as well as on results of seismic testing and recent research related to drilling, this article will attempt to give an updated picture of the nature of the substratum of the nuclear plant, which may help to predict possible developments in the currently unfolding disaster.

    "Heavy machinery giant IHI Corp.'s Keizo Imahori, 38, who oversaw the mechanical boring of the containment vessel in December 2016, explains that, "A number of unexpected dents were found on the floor of the nuclear reactor building."

    This was a surprising discovery for Imahori and his team. The presence of the dents meant that it would be difficult for machines to get sufficiently close to the necessary areas to drill a hole, which in turn has a detrimental effect on the entire search for melted nuclear fuel."

    "This is not rocket science folks, but I guess people prefer scary “end of the world” scenarios rather than studying bland engineering procedures"

    No one said it was an 'end of time scenario' but this situation will continue until the end of time..if no viable solution is found.
    The remnants of the fuel is lethal..and evidently present physical barriers to continue.
    I would hardly call it "studying bland engineering".
