Ocean Plume Modeling for the Fukushima Daiichi Event (pdf) — US Dept. of Commerce, NOAA, National Weather Service, Sept. 2013:

> Estimates of contamination

  • “Coastal releases ignored. According to TEPCO estimates, coastal releases are 1% of atmospheric… Not important for far-field estimates (i.e., exposure for US territories)”
  • “Scenarios used [are] NRC source scenario [and] DOE Supercore source scenario”
  • Regarding Cs-137 release estimates, “NRC and DOE differ by three orders of magnitude” [i.e. DOE estimate is 1,000 to 9,999 times more than NRC]
  • “Enormous uncertainty in total amount of contamination released at FDNPP”
  • “Differences between NRC &  DOE sources are crippling from a scientific perspective”
  • “DOE much too high at… JAMSTEC observation line 30km offshore [and] overestimates Cs-137 by order of magnitude [predicting a] maxima of around 100 Bq/L for Cs-137… JAMSTEC realistic contamination levels would be factor 10 smaller (10 Bq/L).”

Is DOE’s 100 Bq/L an ‘Overestimate’?

  • The above report by the federal government claims to use ‘realistic’ data from the JAMSTEC line (Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology) of 10 Bq/L for Cs-137. However, JAMSTEC measured a maxima of 186 Bq/L for Cs137 at 30km off the Fukushima coast — nearly double the DOE ‘overestimate’.
  • The Science Council of Japan: “Oceanic monitoring… identified that 100 Bq/L or more of 137Cs had been diffused to the north and south.”

DOE’s estimate based on the ‘supercore’ scenario came rather close to predicting actual Cs-137 levels observed in samples from the Pacific Ocean — if anything, it appears to be an underestimate.

The reactor conditions assumed in DOE’s ‘supercore’ scenario have been redacted from FOIA documents. However it’s likely that the ‘supercore’ was among the worst-case scenarios discussed by the US government. As reported by Echo News,  around 5 different worst-cases were in play — “I still won’t let anybody use the word ‘worst case’ in the room here because there’s about five worst cases.” -NRC’s Director of Nuclear Security & Incident Response

    The worst case scenario was laid out by scientists long before Fukushima. Namely that if a huge megaplex nuclear plant had multiple meltdowns the effects would be catastrophic for the Northern Hemisphere.

    Luckily in the short term, the grimmest forecasts dealt with extended massive Chernobyl-type conflagrations of multiple reactor nuclear fuel fires inundating the troposphere.

    Instead, Fukushima Daiichi dealt a large atmospheric toxin release (still continuing) but the worst radioactive releases were carried (and still flow) into the Pacific Ocean with longterm health implications for carbon lifeforms.

    Will the Pacific Ocean carbon forms survive the tremendous coria leaching and mankind survive in the Northern Hemisphere? That is the trillion dollar question for the next 25 years.

      Sickputer: Good thinking, but you are off by several orders of magnitude;

      Since we talking so "Harvard Business School" plainly:

      Loss of the northern hemisphere for life forms to inhabit would clearly indicate a one hundred trillion to one quadrillion dollar loss of real property and future cash flows unavailable (for bankers to make obscene profits with, insurers to insure against etc.)

      Where is the general outrage?

      Have we become so self-obsessed, as a culture, that if it hasn't happened to me, yet, I'm "good."

      No 'mea culpas' from GE, who clearly understood the risks, and who never would have constructed the Mark One Boiling Water Reactor line, if United States Congress had not erred (were they bribed?) in giving nuclear reactor 'pushers' a pass for any harm resulting: the Price Anderson Act sell out of the planet, by stupid, greedy little bug-eyed men in cheap suits, who hang out in the marble hallways of our Capitol Building: our esteemed 'Legislators;'

      Caught selling out the planet, they run and hide behind Big Nuke's fleshy behind;

      In 2005, four years into the Dick Cheney administration, Congress re-authorized this criminal Act for twenty years, instead of the customary ten;

      BP's advertising about the jobs they bring to Americans is sounding a little nervous; like GE's constant flatulence about "imagineering". BP paid big fines and costs for the Macondo disaster in the Gulf.

      GE, not so much, for Fukushima meag-disaster.

        Yes, Ned…you are quite right. The correct phrase should be: That is the quadrillion dollar question for the next 25 years.

        They should have committed a hundred billion dollars a day at Fukushima in resources the first six months and maybe at that great expense and one million worker deaths they might have saved the human race in Japan and the downwinders and down current victims.

        Instead a sizable portion of the Northern Hemisphere will become a habitat for carbon form extinctions and mutants with shortened life spans. This will play out over decades and centuries. Slow motion extinction. Nucleoapes bombed our future generations and will never spend an hour in jail for their crimes.

      Sickputer, the trouble with ALL of the estimates made is that it is ongoing, escalating, cumulative, bio-accumulative and bio-magnifying. Meaning that the figures never go down — they can only go up in the course of time.

      Regarding atmospheric versus releases into the ocean, the blow-up of MOX fuel alone from reactor 3 was enough to kill everyone on Earth if evenly distributed.

      Of course, we can go into the fine points about whether we die of cesium poisoning or plutonium poisoning, and whether the poisoning hits us by direct bombardment or up through the food chain.

      The thing is, it's never an either/or. It's either/AND at the best.

    This is why you never listen what the media or leaders are telling you in a time of disaster/crisis (like when 3.11 happened). You follow your instinct and if it is telling you evacuate and RUN you do it.

    As a design engineer, I must say that 3 orders of magnitude of "error" for something as well understood as nuclear physics is simply bumbling, or in my assessment, intentional obfuscation.
    Likely a good mix of both.

    Another explanation for the differences is that the scientists who were given the task of calculating the estimates were easily compartmentalized and stuck with the data that was given to them by management with no way to know how accurate the data was or any hidden agendas on the bureaucratic side of the agency.

    It is all too predictable that the NRC would have estimated absurdly low numbers.

    At issue here is the unknown status of just how "melted down" things got when they were doing their estimates.

    For all of my life (I grew up with duck and cover near a USAF base) the idea of a containment breach was blasphemy in the the religion of nuclear economics and politics.

    What is interesting (now in hind sight) is that never in my growing up and studying the nuclear dilemma do I ever remember an ocean dispersal ever being discussed.

    Fallout from a melt down or detonation was always based on atmospheric dispersal.

    Amazing how this has gone so far beyond what the nuclear apologists have pontificated for so long.

      OK. So now they're more informed. Just how that knowledge going to contribute to the decisions regarding what exists now? While the events of Fukushima may themselves be an anomoly, the fact that all plants in existence share with Fukushima engineering and operating philosophies 3 magnititudes in error should negate Fukushima's particular circumstances. Society, then, should respond by changing its philosophy to reflect the error.

      There's not enough question, especially with aging plants and relicensing, how this is going to continue.

        Or they could announce publicly that the worst case scenario is HERE AND ONGOING, and that it is already TOO LATE.

        Then they could sub-divide the EPA into a department for honest and ongoing radiation monitoring; one for education about growing organic foods; another for medical supplements to offset radiation exposure; another to direct people to the safest places to live; another for community education programs; another for mass medical testing for escalating ailments; etc.

            St90 from Chernobyl has been turning into to Yt90 since 1986 and the most was in 1986. Half-life means than half of St90 has changed into Yt90 30 years later, and all St90 has turned into YT90 within 10 times 30 years.

            The trouble with Chernobyl is that more and more St90 is being produced every day, so 30 years after 1986, there will be more than half of what was predicted to be left if no new ST90 was being produced.

            Isotopes and Half-lives
            “The half-life is the length of time required for half of any given amount of an element to decay into another element. For example, if one begins with a gram of carbon-10, 20 seconds later only half a gram will remain, after 40 seconds only a quarter gram will be left, after 60 seconds an eighth of a gram, after 80 seconds one sixteenth of a gram, and after 100 seconds have elapsed from the beginning of the experiment, only one thirty-second of the original carbon-10 will remain (left). Because it decays so fast carbon-10 is not found in nature, although it can be observed as the product of some nuclear reactions….”

            RADIOACTIVE STRONTIUM-90 IN BABY TEETHOF NEW JERSEY CHILDREN
            AND THE LINK WITH CANCER: A SPECIAL REPORT

            Joseph J. Mangano, MaY 19, 2003

            "The trends in Sr-90 average and childhood cancer incidence in Ocean and Monmouth Counties were compared using three-year groups (1983-85, 1984-86, etc.) instead of single years to enlarge the number of cases/teeth, making the comparison more meaningful. In addition, a 'lag period' between exposure and diagnosis was tested. If Sr-90 increases in a given year, one would investigate any increase in childhood cancer not necessarily the same year, but more likely several years in the future. For example, the Chernobyl accident took place in 1986, but the large rise in childhood thyroid cancer did not take place until 1990. In the New Jersey tooth study, a five-year latency proved to be the best match.

            "Table 9 and Figure 3 show that the trends in Sr-90 and cancer incidence in Ocean and Monmouth County children under age 10 look very much alike over a 14-year period. In other words, when Sr-90 increased, there was an increase in cancer incidence 0-9 five years later; decreased were followed by subsequent decreases. This finding is very similar to that in Suffolk County, Long Island; and since it involves 167 baby teeth and 434 cancer cases, it suggests a statistical link…

            But I'm not sure that this is a proper mathematical model for the amount of Yt90, but rather a model for all the radioactive daughters on St90. Still is this a proper model?

            You only need one atom of Strontium90 as an internal emmitter to cause cancer.

            Internal Radioactive Emitters – Invisible, Tasteless, and Odorless
            Helen Caldicott, MD
            “… Simply speaking, there is a gene in every cell called the regulatory gene. It controls the rate of cell division. If this specific DNA sequence is hit by radiation the cell will either be killed or, alternatively, the regulatory gene can be bio-chemically altered. This is called a mutation. It is impossible to know if this damage has taken place in your body. The cell will sit silently for many years until one day, instead of dividing in a controlled fashion, by mitosis, to form two daughter cells, it begins to reproduce uncontrollably, producing trillions of cells. That is a cancer. A single mutation in a single gene can kill you. This process is accelerated in children….
            ” Strontium 90 is a high-energy beta emitter, half-life 28 years, detectably radioactive for 600 years. As a calcium analogue, it is known as a bone-seeker. It concentrates in the food chain, specifically milk (including breast milk), and is laid down in bones and teeth in the human body, where it can irradiate a bone forming cell, or osteoblast, causing bone cancer; or mutate a white blood cell in the bone marrow which can initiate leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells….”

    Note that saying "up to 10,000" leaves room for mathematical argument. The skeptic will try to discredit the site by saying that's an exaggeration. Try to use the wording "More than x times", please? The phrasing "up to" is overused, probably because of the sales world.

      Gulf War Veterans and Depleted Uranium
      By Dr. Rosalie Bertell, Ph.D., G.N.S.H.
      May 1999
      “…Uranium is both a chemical toxic and radioactive hazard: Soluble uranium is regulated because of its chemical toxicity, measured by damage to the kidney and tubules. Uranium is a heavy metal, known to cause uranium nephritis. Insoluble uranium, such as was released in the Gulf War, is regulated by its radiological properties, and not its chemical properties. Because of its slow absorption through the lungs and long retention in body tissues, its primary damage will be due to its radiological damage to internal organs rather than chemical damage to the renal system. Obviously, both types of damage occur simultaneously, therefore it is a matter of judgment which severe damage, radiological or chemical, occurs at the lowest dose level. However, with the lengthening of the time during which the contaminant resides in the body and the low overall dose, the risk of cancer death becomes greater than the risk of significant damage to the renal system.
      “Uranium decays into other radioactive chemicals with statistical regularity. Therefore, in its natural and undisturbed state, it always occurs together with a variety of other radioactive chemicals, some of the best known being thorium, radium, polonium and lead….

      Anne, your points are VERY well-taken. Chemtrails alone, with its reckless showering of aluminum onto a non-consenting, uninformed public, greatly increases Alzheimer's and autism. Now one out of two people can expect to have Alzheimer's and/or dementia before they die.

      And that is even WITHOUT the added radiation. The world is being turned into a death factory.

    Can anybody put a timeframe on the events unfolding for the future of mankind – not forgetting our animal friends as well? I read figures of 5 years to 40 years before we all succumb to the effects of radiation poisoning but never any definitive calculations or even explanations. Is it impossible to calculate the total amounts of radiation possible knowing what the contents of FD plant were. I understand that lies, lies, and more dammned lies obfuscate the calculations but as Dr Paolo Scampa calculated, Fukushima Equals 3,000 Billion Lethal Doses or 429 doses each. How long before that amount begins to impact upon the lives of everyone in the World to the point of collapse of the civilisation as we know it?

      Thyroid cancer incidence continues to rise for at least 17 years after the initial population exposure. There is relatively little known about the rates for the other cancers, largely because they are difficult to follow and the latencies are longer than for thyroid, where the increased incidence begins within a year or so. White blood cell cancers, likely caused by strontium 90, are particularly difficult to track. Contaminated milk and cheese are widely distributed in the population, and people move around. What you would expect to see in practice is an inexorable rise in the incidence of a broad range of cancers, which is what has been observed for decades already. Unfortunately it is always possible to attribute this to other factors, such as the aging population, cigarette smoking (clearly a major factor) and more efficient health screening and case finding.

      In practice what will happen is a gradual deterioration in the health of the population and in the knowledge that some areas are unhealthy there will be economic pressure on the increasingly sparse less contaminated areas of the earth. Poor health is then blamed on the multiple adverse factors which exist associated with the low socioeconomic status of those in the contaminated regions.

        And why ebola and why now? Suddenly in Africa, there were just a lot more infected monkeys? Like AIDS?

        Too many dots to connect here. But anyone who has ears, can listen.

        It's troubling too, because populations with their immune systems already weakened (as will be happening progressively with radiation) can more readily be hit with an epidemic.

      With an unknown tonnage of nuclear fuel in the first place, and a spectacularly crowded mathematical terrain of half-lives, daughters radionuclides, and incalculable effects of bio-accumulation and bio-magnification, it's way billions more.

    Even now, when actual data exists demonstrating that ongoing corium fission occurs, the NRC and DOE persist in their willful ignorance of scientific fact. ;)

    The maximum temperature of corium is estimated by NRC/DOE to be 2300C, which cools rapidly as decay heat is dissipated.
    In actuality, corium temperatures can rise to 5000C, due to ongoing fission of the corium.
    And corium temperatures will stay at 5000C until the nuclear fuel is exhausted.
    Contamination of the Pacific Ocean is, in actuality, orders of magnitude higher than estimated.
    Fukushima Diiachi Units1-3 experienced a total release into the environment of their entire cores, measuring 690PBq of cesium.

    Please can I still remind everyone- that if Fuku was to be possibly closed completely down now, the problem would still be radioactivity from what has happened already.

    Fact: There is no such thing as Half Life of radioactive decay. This is a complete nuke distortion by industry. The real truth is there is a half life acceleration beyond the point when the particle was created: which means that from that radioactive particle that lands on your desk there it is and will be continued even more radiation than it is doing now and will both continue and increase for so many years in the future until it reaches the point where it is diminishing.

    So please people do not say 1/2 life decay as the average person does not understand- please say 1/2 life acceleration of radiation. That is the true term.

    With the radiation flowing above and circling the Earth every 70 days and only accelerating even more radioactive activity from the past releases…I would venture to say we all have maybe a total of 10 years left before all mankind is gone in the Northern Hemisphere. Just look at the 1,000 kids in mid-America if only that number is affected this year. What happens next year, how many???

For 2006, 298.38 million souls, 2007, 301.23 million, 2008, 304.09 million, 2009, 306.77 million, 2010, 309.33 million, 2011, 311.59, 2012, 313.91 million, and 2013, 316.16 million. Using this data, the first difference average is 2.58 which means the population is growing about 2.58 million souls a year. I don’t believe the population is growing by 2.58 million a year. By using the Inhibited Growth Model, the maximum that can be obtained is about 316.0 million. So, I don’t think the 2013 number is correct. …

    To get an equation – Newton’s Theorem – that can be used to extrapolate the population for the coming years, I decided to eliminate the 6th difference and beyond. This is not uncommon. In George Boole’s book on “Calculus of Finite Differences page 46, he discards everything past the 6th difference to arrive at a area under the curve equation. The new calculated population for 2011, 311.59 million, 2012, 312.64 million, and 2013, 310.35 million. I noticed on the CDC website the death rate for 2012 set a record at 2.5 million. The calculated drop from 2012 to 2013 is 2.29 million. I think the numbers are hitting close to reality.

    If this equation is anywhere close to reality, 2019 the US population is zero. I don’t believe the population of the US can go to zero in that length of time. I don’t think the population will ever go to zero but it might get close. When crunching numbers, I had an applied mathematics professor tell me that if you divide by two or multiply by two you are probably close to the answer. Using his criteria probably a better estimate is 16 years instead of 8 years. The US should get ready for serious dislocations about 2019 to 2027. I wouldn’t know where to set the error since the US is notorious for lying about everything from GDP, unemployment, death, WIPPS, twin towers, etc. …

    Disgusting. A better estimate probably is between 2019 and 2030. If the US will ever start publishing accurate population numbers, the time period can be improved.

    I don’t know if this is any help. The death rate is going to hit at all stratums. The health care people will get hit as hard as the CPA’s, wine-os, CEO’s, etc. Things could get really nasty really quick. Some of the organs of the dinosaur have to function.

    The xenon release degraded to caesium which appears to have dumped all over everything and everybody. Most of us are going on hunches and what we read. This is not good either. The problem is so immense I don’t think anyone knows where to start.

    Please point out an errors.

    Not for Distribution…….

    So, we peons were not meant to come to the conclusion that a horrific release of radioactive energy is poisoning the Northern Hemisphere?

    Those of us who have been Fukushima Alarmists since the get go are now hereby vindicated.

    Every post I have mustered on these forums is, if anything, slightly
    off-based since my estimates were obtained from known knowns.

    Now that we are in the unknown unknown, no where to run, no where to hide.

    Love today, cherish the past, for tomorrow is gone.

    People get pissed at me when I beat the Fukushima drums.

    Let 'em.

    Awake yet folks?

  • Former Japanese U.N. diplomat Akio Matsumura posted a letter to the UN authored by Mr. Mitsuhei Murata, Japan’s former ambassador to Switzerland, on his (Matsumura’s) webpage http://akiomatsumura.com/2012/04/682.html

    [Murata wrote:] “…I asked top spent-fuel pools expert Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy, for an explanation of the potential impact of the 11,421 assemblies. I received an astounding response from Mr. Alvarez [updated 4/5/12]:

    [Alvarez] “…Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity.

    About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 — roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP).

    The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-Daichi site contains nearly half of the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel) [end Alvarez]

    • To repeat, the spent fuel pool inventory stored in the pools includes:

      "The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-Daichi site contains nearly half of the total amount of Cs-137 estimated by the NCRP to have been released by all atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, Chernobyl, and world-wide reprocessing plants (~270 million curies or ~9.9 E+18 Becquerel)" [end]

      THIS ESTIMATE DOESN'T INCLUDE THE REACTOR FUEL and its 1/2 the Cs-137 previously released.

      NOT ALL of the inventory has been released yet in the ongoing ocean and atmospheric contamination. But it will.

      The pressing questions are HOW MUCH so far and HOW FAST the rest?

        Majia, here is my forward looking analysis:
        Japan is in the process of de-evolution.
        That is, the people of Japan will become increasingly disfunctional, by modern standards.
        The present generation is failing due to direct exposure.
        The next generation will be mutants, fewer in number, and poorer in economic terms.
        The third generation will be mutants, even fewer in number, and even poorer in economic terms.
        There will be few live births in the fourth generation.
        Do you agree?

        In four or five generations, there will be no Japanese people able to decommission their 54 nuclear reactors. ;)

          Yoichi Shimatsu, Japnese-American hournalist who has been back and forth, says that teenage girls in Tokyo already look like they are age 30. The breakdown of immunities and bodily functions also produce premature aging.

          I don't think they will make it to four generations ahead. But then again, will we?

          As for America and Europe, let us assume that Arnie Gundersen is correct:
          During the worst of the Fukushima emmissions,
          The Japanese were breathing in 10 hot particles per day.
          Those in California and the Pacific Northwest were breathing in 5 hot particles per day.

          By extending this logic,
          People throughout the rest of the US, Mexico, and Canada were breathing in 2 or 3 hot particles per day.
          People in Europe and East Asia got 1 or 2 hot particles per day.
          If you didn't get your own personal hot particle yet, don't worry.
          The plume passes over you every 40 days or so, providing fresh Fukushima fallout on every pass.

          What does all this mean?
          Once inhaled, hot particles tend to stick around in the lungs.
          Like tiny machine guns, they bombard surrounding tissue with radiation.
          Causing mutation.
          Causing cancers.

          My Geiger counter still picks up fresh Fukushima hot particles, that have gotten into my home here in Indiana, and are floating around in the air.
          Still.
          In 2014.
          No way to keep them outside.
          No way to avoid them when you go outside.

          One hot particle can produce the genetic mutations at the cellular level to cause cancer.
          Wanna bet on what your own personal 5 or 10 or 15 year survival chances will be. ;)

          Love your spouse.
          Love your kids.
          Spend time with them.
          Tell them you love them.
          Enjoy your life.

          Shut them all down now.
          Tipping point.
          Tip it! :)

    "…We explore the main dispersion and deposition patterns of the radioactive cloud, both regionally for Japan as well as for the
    entire Northern Hemisphere. While at first sight it seemed
    fortunate that westerly winds prevailed most of the time during the accident, a different picture emerges from our de-
    tailed analysis. Exactly during and following the period of
    the strongest 137Cs emissions on 14 and 15 March as well
    as after another period with strong emissions on 19 March,
    the radioactive plume was advected over Eastern Honshu Is-
    land, where precipitation deposited a large fraction of 137Cs
    on land surfaces. Radioactive clouds reached North Amer-
    ica on 15 March and Europe on 22 March. By middle of
    April, 133Xe was fairly uniformly distributed in the middle
    latitudes of the entire Northern Hemisphere and was for the
    first time also measured in the Southern Hemisphere (Darwin station, Australia). In general, simulated and observed
    concentrations of 133Xe and 137Cs both at Japanese as well
    as at remote sites were in good quantitative agreement. Altogether, we estimate that 6.4 PBq of 137Cs, or 18 % of the total
    fallout until 20 April, were deposited over Japanese land areas, while most of the rest fell over the North Pacific Ocean.
    Only 0.7 PBq, or 1.9 % of the total fallout were deposited on
    land areas other than Japan…"

        "…We used both atmospheric activity concentration measurements as well as, for 137Cs, measurements of bulk deposition. Regarding
        133Xe, we find a total release of 15.3 (uncertainty range 12.2–18.3) EBq, which is more than twice as high as the total release from Chernobyl and likely the largest radioactive noble gas release in history. The entire noble gas inventory of reactor units 1–3 was set free into the atmosphere between 11 and 15 March 2011.

        In fact, our release estimate is higher than the entire estimated
        133Xe inventory of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, which we explain with the decay of iodine-133 (half-life of 20.8 h) into 133Xe. There is strong evidence that the 133Xe release started
        before the first active venting was made, possibly indicating
        structural damage to reactor components and/or leaks due to
        overpressure which would have allowed early release of noble gases. For 137Cs, the inversion results give a total emission of 36.6 (20.1–53.1) PBq, or about 43 % of the estimated Chernobyl emission…"

    Statistics have shown that 100% of the 58% who responded to a 2011 Gallup Poll citing that 58% of Americans believe that the vulnerable,outdated,even obsolete nuclear facilities in the United States of Atomica are "safe" are actually already dead from the neck up and have no business promoting TPTB/Industry claims they conveniently latch onto and remain in apathetic denial even while they sit waiting a LONG time for an open chair/IV tree in the chemo infusion centers being overwhelmed already just 1300 days into the ongoing 311/Fukushima Nuclear ELE that the industry & PTB disgustingly spend exponentially more financial & manpower resources on the hiring of lying sacks of paid shill shit & lawyers to tie up & postpone or successfully appeal mandated post-311 safety & operational changes instead of digging into their deep pockets filled with the profits gleaned from their victims/public/rate-taxpayers & govt. subsidies they're awarded(rewarded)for doing the dirtiest work ever unleashed upon mankind & Mother Nature in human recorded evolution that might have had a chance of being solved or at least "minimized" damage while making the world just a little bit safer had funding for such not been diverted to their own pockets & continuing dirty work http://www.gallup.com/poll/146939/majority-americans-say-nuclear-power-plants-safe.aspx I used to call nuke-pukes a "humanoid sub-species",now I think WE are the "sub-species" & exception to the ruling stupidity[?]! :(

I'm not even bothering to seek treatment for the things happening to my own health. I found a means to be legally medicated enough to reduce my physical pain at a low cost & it's just barely enough to allow 4-6 hours of sleep for 2 days of every week & that's keeping me going enough to watch my girl like a hawk & catch her when she falls,but mainly KNOWING when she's about to,which encompasses so much more than the descriptive sentence implies,but nobody but me around or willing to even help when she's doing very poorly. I'm happy to have spent a melancholy,cozy evening watching the animated movie,"Watership Down" with my Hunny Bunny,the kind of sentimental memories/moments I live 4 2 b sure!…
