Real cause of nuclear crisis

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (Tepco), the operator of the stricken Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Station, has been insisting that the culprit that caused the nuclear crisis was the huge tsunami that hit the plant after the March 11 earthquake. But evidence is mounting that the meltdown at the nuclear power plant was actually caused by the earthquake itself.




According to a science journalist well versed in the matter, Tepco is afraid that if the earthquake were to be determined as the direct cause of the accident, the government would have to review its quake-resistance standards completely, which in turn would delay by years the resumption of the operation of existing nuclear power stations that are suspended currently due to regular inspections.

The journalist is Mitsuhiko Tanaka, formerly with Babcock-Hitachi K.K. as an engineer responsible for designing the pressure vessel for the No. 4 reactor at the ill-fated Fukushima nuclear plant.

He says if the earthquake caused the damage to the plumbing, leading to a "loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA)" in which vaporized coolant gushed into the containment building from the damaged piping, an entirely new problem — "vulnerability to earthquake resistance of the nuclear reactor's core structure" — would surface and that this will require a total review of the government's safety standards for nuclear power plants in Japan, which is quite frequently hit by earthquakes.

Such a review will require a number of years of study, making it impossible to restart the now suspended nuclear power stations next year as Tepco hopes.

What puzzles Tanaka most is why the emergency condensers, which turn vaporized coolant (steam) into water and are supposed to lower both the pressure and temperature of the reactor, were not operating at the time of the accident although the condensers have the capability of functioning even when electricity becomes unavailable.

It is highly probable, he says, that the plumbing linked with the condensers was damaged by the earthquake, causing water or vapor to leak out, thus leading to the nonfunctioning of the condensers.

In a report released on May 23, Tepco said it stopped the emergency condensers after the quake occurred but before the tsunami hit the plant so that the temperature of the pressure vessel would not change by more than 55 degrees Celsius per hour. This, it said, was strictly in accordance with the instructions contained in the operating manual.

When a Diet committee looking into the incident asked Tepco to submit a copy of the manual, most pages of the documents so submitted were "blacked out," as the company alleged they contained trade secrets which it did not want to go into the public domain.

Totally dissatisfied, the committee issued another order to Tepco to submit the whole manual in its original form, to which the company complied on Oct. 24. This led journalist Tanaka to come to the conclusion that the utility was not telling the truth.

He said the 55-C-per-hour is a figure used in ordinary plants in a non-emergency situation to keep piping in a good condition and that the figure should not be used in an emergency. He pointed out that the manual says that the figure is something that should be followed in operations just prior to a cold shutdown of a reactor, not immediately after a problem has arisen.

At a news conference on May 15, Tepco said that according to its simulation, the meltdown at the No. 1 reactor of the nuclear power plant happened about 15 hours after the earthquake because the tsunami destroyed all electricity supply sources and the water level in the reactor lowered rapidly. But Tanaka says that the simulation is far different from the actually measured water level and pressure.

A rapid increase in the pressure inside the containment vessel is especially unnatural. Although the simulation report says that the pressure inside the containment vessel shot up to more than seven times standard atmospheric pressure around 5:40 a.m. on March 12, or about 15 hours after the quake, the fact is that the pressure had already risen to six times the standard at 12:12 a.m. on March 12 — five to six hours before the time given by the simulation report.

Simulation data calculated by a computer can be manipulated easily depending on the types of input. Tanaka suspects that Tepco cooked up simulation results to suit its own purposes in an attempt to deceive the public.

Atsuo Watanabe, former designer of containment vessels at Toshiba Corp., said on Oct. 26 that the most fundamental cause of the Fukushima plant fiasco probably lay in the blind acceptance of the safety standards adopted in the United States, which did not take into consideration all potential consequences from earthquakes.

The reactors damaged at Fukushima were of the GE Mark 1 type designed and built by General Electric Co. He pointed out that in the U.S., there is no need to consider the combination of an earthquake and a loss-of-coolant accident caused by broken piping, adding that it is reasonable to assume that the earthquake and loss of coolant occurred simultaneously at Fukushima No. 1.

Perhaps it was against such a background that Tepco blacked out crucial matters in the operational manual of the reactors, as there are 10 other GE Mark 1 type reactors in Japan.

These and other scientific findings have given rise to serious suspicion of Tepco's claim that the crisis at the nuclear power plant was caused by the tsunami, and not by the earthquake. And a view that blames the tremor as the true culprit is becoming more and more trusted.

It is imperative that the special investigative committee recently created within the Diet undertake thorough inquiry into the real cause of the accidents. The panel must force those Tepco employees who have worked on the spot to testify, even though the company has so far obstinately opposed such testimonies.

Should the government decide to permit the resumption of nuclear power stations in various parts of the country by blindly accepting assertions coming from Tepco, the whole nation would face uneasiness in preventing another calamity in the future and would fail to fulfill its accountability to the whole world, which is watching whether Japan will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the true cause of the Fukushima disaster.

For months after a devastating earthquake and tsunami crippled Japan’s Fukushima power plant, sparking fears of a possible nuclear meltdown, the country’s anti-nuclear groups struggled to be heard. A few small rallies were held, but they failed to generate much media coverage. As debates raged from Germany to China about the safety of nuclear reactors, commentary in Japan, of all places, was strangely absent. Protests are just that unusual in this conservative country.

But this is starting to change. As Fukushima continues to spew more radioactivity into the air and trust in the government and Tokyo Electric Power Co. plunges, the mood in Japan is slowly shifting away from nuclear power. On Sept. 19, the mounting anger and fear culminated in a rally of some 60,000 anti-nuclear protesters in Tokyo [...]

Japan's prime minister has announced that the tsunami-devastated Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant has reached a "cold shutdown" and is no longer leaking substantial amounts of radiation.
Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda's announcement Friday marks a milestone nine months after the March 11 tsunami sent three reactors at the plant into meltdowns in the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl.
But experts noted that the plant remains vulnerable to more problems and will take decades to decommission the plant.
The crisis displaced some 100,000 people. Officials are to start discussing allowing some residents to return to less contaminated areas. A 12-mile (20-kilometer) zone around the plant is expected to remain mostly off-limits for years.

Absolutely no progress being made' at Fukushima nuke plant, undercover reporter says

Conditions at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant are far worse than its operator or the government has admitted, according to freelance journalist Tomohiko Suzuki, who spent more than a month working undercover at the power station.

"Absolutely no progress is being made" towards the final resolution of the crisis, Suzuki told reporters at a Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan news conference on Dec. 15. Suzuki, 55, worked for a Toshiba Corp. subsidiary as a general laborer there from July 13 to Aug. 22, documenting sloppy repair work, companies including plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) playing fast and loose with their workers' radiation doses, and a marked concern for appearances over the safety of employees or the public.

For example, the no-entry zones around the plant -- the 20-kilometer radius exclusion zone and the extension covering most of the village of Iitate and other municipalities -- have more to do with convenience that actual safety, Suzuki says.

Tomohiko Suzuki shows reporters a watch with a pinhole camera on Dec. 15 at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan. He used the watch to photograph the inside of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant while working undercover there in July and August. (Mainichi)

"(Nuclear) technology experts I've spoken to say that there are people living in areas where no one should be. It's almost as though they're living inside a nuclear plant," says Suzuki. Based on this and his own radiation readings, he believes the 80-kilometer-radius evacuation advisory issued by the United States government after the meltdowns was "about right," adding that the government probably decided on the current no-go zones to avoid the immense task of evacuating larger cities like Iwaki and Fukushima.

The situation at the plant itself is no better, where he says much of the work is simply "for show," fraught with corporate jealousies and secretiveness and "completely different" from the "all-Japan" cooperative effort being presented by the government.

"Reactor makers Toshiba and Hitachi (brought in to help resolve the crisis) each have their own technology, and they don't talk to each other. Toshiba doesn't tell Hitachi what it's doing, and Hitachi doesn't tell Toshiba what it's doing."

Meanwhile, despite there being no concrete data on the state of the reactor cores, claims by the government and TEPCO that the disaster is under control and that the reactors are on-schedule for a cold shutdown by the year's end have promoted a breakneck work schedule, leading to shoddy repairs and habitual disregard for worker safety, he said.

"Working at Fukushima is equivalent to being given an order to die," Suzuki quoted one nuclear-related company source as saying. He says plant workers regularly manipulate their radiation readings by reversing their dosimeters or putting them in their socks, giving them an extra 10 to 30 minutes on-site before they reach their daily dosage limit. In extreme cases, Suzuki said, workers even leave the radiation meters in their dormitories.

According to Suzuki, TEPCO and the subcontractors at the plant never explicitly tell the workers to take these measures. Instead the workers are simply assigned projects that would be impossible to complete on time without manipulating the dosage numbers, and whether through a sense of duty or fear of being fired, the workers never complain.

Furthermore, the daily radiation screenings are "essentially an act," with the detector passed too quickly over each worker, while "the line to the buzzer that is supposed to sound when there's a problem has been cut," Suzuki said.

Meanwhile much of the work -- like road repairs -- is purely cosmetic, and projects directly related to cleaning up the crisis such as decontaminating water -- which Suzuki was involved in -- are rife with cut corners, including the use of plastic piping likely to freeze and crack in the winter.

"We are seeing many problems stemming from the shoddy, rushed work at the power plant," Suzuki says.

Despite the lack of progress and cavalier attitude to safety, Suzuki claims the cold shutdown schedule has essentially choked off any new ideas. The crisis is officially under control and the budget for dealing with it has been cut drastically, and many Hitachi and Toshiba engineers that have presented new solutions have been told there is simply no money to try them.

In sum, Suzuki says what he saw (and photographed with a pinhole camera hidden in his watch) proves the real work to overcome the Fukushima disaster "is just beginning." He lost his own inside look at that work after it was discovered he was a journalist, though officially he was fired because his commute to work was too long.

"The Japanese media have turned away from this issue," he laments, though the story is far from over. (By Robert Irvine, Staff Writer)

(Updates with prime minister's remark in third paragraph.)
Dec. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said the Fukushima nuclear reactors have been brought to a state of cold shutdown, a disputed milestone that will likely allow the return of some evacuees and eventual dismantling of the plant.
Speaking at his office in Tokyo, Noda said today that the government and Tokyo Electric Power Co. had contained the nuclear crisis that occurred after the reactors in northeast Japan were crippled by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
“A stable condition has been achieved, and we can consider the accident itself contained,” Noda said.
Cold shutdown describes a reactor's cooling system operating at atmospheric pressure and below 93 degrees Celsius (200 degrees Fahrenheit), according to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The utility has released data showing it meets these criteria at Fukushima, the site of the worst nuclear accident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, though some nuclear scientists say the term doesn't apply to melted reactors.
“Achieving cold shutdown does not change the condition of the reactors,” Tadashi Narabayashi, a former reactor safety researcher at Toshiba Corp. and now a nuclear engineering professor at Hokkaido University, said by phone. “It does mean the government will start reviewing evacuation zones and perhaps lifting restrictions depending on extent of contamination.”
Return Home
While the status of the reactors is in dispute, it remains that swathes of land, towns and villages in Fukushima are highly contaminated by radiation fallout and are likely to be uninhabitable for two decades or more.
Radiation has forced the evacuation of about 160,000 people and the government has yet to say how many can return and when.
“We want to make a united effort for them to return home as soon as possible and rebuild their livelihoods,” Noda said.
Tokyo Electric has battled explosions, aftershocks, equipment breakdowns and leaks of contaminated water after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami hit the plant and knocked out power to reactor cooling systems. Three reactor cores subsequently melted, causing the biggest civilian nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.
The utility, known as Tepco, said in September it had restored stable cooling of the three reactors at the Dai-Ichi plant and reduced their temperatures below 100 degrees Celsius. Last month, it assessed the radiation exposure at the plant's boundaries at 0.1 millisievert a year, below its target of 1 millisievert a year.
‘Extraordinarily Hot'
The drop in radiation was the second of two criteria imposed by the country's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency before the watchdog would consider the plant stable.
It's an achievement to have restored cooling and gotten water temperatures to 100 degrees, said Arnie Gunderson, a Vermont-based nuclear engineer who has testified to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Fukushima, said in a phone interview.
“But I don't know why they choose to say cold shutdown because that's an affront to those in the industry who really know what the term means,” he said. “That nuclear core is still in a configuration where the center is extraordinarily hot.”
Besides maintaining stable cooling of the reactors and spent-fuel pools at the plant, Tepco has to manage storage tanks holding millions of metric tons of contaminated water.
‘Hardest Part Starts'
“Now the hardest part starts, which is the cleanup,” said Najmedin Meshkati, a professor of civil engineering at the University of Southern California, who worked as a consultant on decommissioning Chernobyl.
Experiences in other countries show the scale of the task still facing Tepco as it begins decommissioning the reactors, and cleaning contaminated waste, even without the complications posed by the damage at Fukushima.
Cold War weapons production in the U.S. left the country with “a significant nuclear cleanup legacy, including high- level waste, contaminated soil and groundwater,” Daniel Poneman, the U.S. Deputy Secretary at the Department of Energy, said in Tokyo yesterday.
The Hanford Site in Washington State and the Savannah River Site in South Carolina have more than 90 million gallons of liquid waste in tanks the government is working to convert into more stable forms that do not threaten the environment, he said.
Japan's government has requested support from the U.S. to decommission the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant as well as managing the site from an environmental perspective, he said.
‘Long Way'
“Work on decommissioning is a long way off. For now, they have to focus on making robots to remove melted fuel and developing new technologies to demolish facilities,” said Narabayashi at Hokkaido University.
In addition, there are about 7 kilometers of plastic pipe in the makeshift cooling system that will need to be replaced with metal versions, he said.
Gunderson said that declaring the cold shutdown at Fukushima risks further eroding people's faith in the government's ability to regulate the nuclear power industry.
“I actually think it's going to blow up in their face,” he said. “In the eyes of the Japanese public, the last thing they need to do is exaggerate. And this is an exaggeration.”

Serpo,
Always nice to know what the talking heads over there are currently spewing, along with inhaling/exhaling toxic radiation continuously.

That is SUCH an absurd utterance it strains comprehension.

A nuclear reactor, or in this case 6, which have melted down completely through the floor and into the watertable under the 6 plants now have 93 Degrees Celsius controlled temps. Yeah, right.

NOT!!!!

And then to understand, thanks to Yoichi Shimatsu that 38 of the 43 Japanese Nuke plants are still NOT restarted, and in various stages of complete meltdown as well...

It boggles the mind.

All I can think of is that early Bullshit utterances at the onset of this disaster was the pablum of "it will take 9 months to achieve cold shutdown" feed to the managed news media of the planet.

So, voila, here it is the week of 12/11 (exactly 9 months since the disaster), and we magically have cold shutdown.

Can hardly wait for Arnie Gunderson to take a "modulated swipe" at that bunch of malarkey.

The only things one can believe anymore is that the sun is hot, our two polar icecaps are cold, and water is wet...
........and THESE are only believeable because no Japanese TEPCO shills have stated those as "Facts."

UNBELIEVEABLE JAPANESE LYING IDIOTS!

http://fairewinds.com/content/fukushima-could-it-have-china-syndrome

best explanation i've read of what happened at Fukushima, explaining the technical in less-technical terms.


speaking of "China Syndrome" -

"Arnie Gundersen: The term is really old; it dates back at least until the 60's. And what it means is that the nuclear core melts, and of course it is an American term, so it melted from America toward China through the center of the earth. That is what the term means. It is an over-exaggeration to begin with, but it does mean that the nuclear core leaves the nuclear reactor, leaves the containment, and gets into the earth. That is what a China Syndrome really means. Now I will be using some rather crude demonstration items today. I realize a lot of engineers watch this and just bear with me here. I think these are analogies and they are always a little risky, but I do think they explain what is happening inside Fukushima.

The first phase of the accident was when the nuclear reactor core lost it's cooling. Now you will remember uranium atoms split; 95% of the power comes from uranium atoms splitting. But these pieces that are left over are called fission products, and they retain a lot of heat. When you shut a nuclear reactor down, a process that takes about 2 seconds, 95% of the heat stops immediately, but 5% of the heat cannot be stopped. That, as long as there is extra water flowing, is all you need to keep a nuclear reactor cool. You remember back in April, I did a video where I talked about a nuclear reactor fuel pellet. It was about as big as my pinkie, and the fuel rod is about the diameter of my pinkie, but 12 feet long. In a lot of ways, it is like spaghetti. It is just as flexible as spaghetti, but of course it is 12 feet long. And there are thousands of these nuclear fuel rods inside a nuclear reactor. A nuclear reactor is not anything but a glorified pressure cooker. A pressure cooker cooks at 15 pounds. A nuclear reactor cooks at 1,000 pounds. But essentially they are the same thing: they are designed to hold really hot water and not to leak.

Well, the nuclear fuel is placed into the nuclear reactor, and as long as the water is in there, everything is fine. But like when you overcook spaghetti, what happens? It can form a blob on the bottom of your pressure cooker. That is what happened at Fukushima. The decay products created enough heat to boil off all the water, the nuclear fuel collapsed, the pasta broke, and is now a blob at the bottom of the nuclear reactor. That happened in about 6-8 hours on Fukushima I and perhaps as long as 10 hours on Fukushima II & III.

So the first phase of this accident is called a meltdown. That is when the pasta collapses and lays in the bottom of the pressure cooker. That is when the nuclear fuel melts and lays in the bottom of the nuclear reactor. Phase one is a meltdown.

The second step in the process is something called a melt-through. Now we are at a point where we have got a blob of nuclear fuel at the bottom of the nuclear reactor vessel. TEPCO is saying that the nuclear reactor vessel is about 8 inches thick, about 30 centimeters thick, and that is enough to hold the nuclear fuel for quite a long time. I do not think that part of TEPCO's analysis is right. I have talked about it before, but on a boiling water reactor, there are over 60 holes in the bottom of the reactor for the control rods to go in and out. And the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has already identified that it is likely that the nuclear fuel did not have to melt through the 8 inches of steel, but instead could do an end run around that and shoot out holes at the bottom of the reactor.

So almost like soft ice cream falling out of a dispenser, it is like hot nuclear fuel pouring out of these holes on the bottom of the reactor. That phase is called a melt-through. Probably within a day of the beginning of the Fukushima accident, we were in the phase where nuclear fuel was melting through the nuclear pressure vessel.

Now remember the nuclear reaction has stopped. None of this is heat from the chain reaction and all of it is coming from the nuclear daughter products. After about a day, instead of about 5% of the heat coming from the nuclear daughter products, we are down to less than 1% of the nuclear heat. So now we have got a blob that has left the pressure cooker, and is now lying flat on the floor underneath the nuclear reactor.

There are some assumptions here. If there were a crater on the bottom of the nuclear reactor, the blob would have fallen into that crater and the heat would have been concentrated. That would have allowed this nuclear blob to work it's way down into the nuclear containment faster. And again, that is an assumption. No one really knows what is really going on underneath that nuclear reactor. No one can get within 100 feet of the bottom of that nuclear reactor. And it will be 20 or 30 years before we really find out what that area looks like. But the assumption is that the nuclear fuel lying on the floor, has begun to eat away at the containment. So phase 2 is when it ate through the containment.

Phase 3 is the beginning of what would ultimately become a China Syndrome. At the bottom of the nuclear containment is about 3 feet of concrete and about 2 inches of steel. We are quite certain that the nuclear fuel has left the reactor and is lying on the bottom of the containment. The question is how deep into the concrete it has worked it's way and has it broken through the steel? I do not think it has broken through the steel and I think it is perhaps as much as a foot or two into the 3 feet of concrete. But that does not make a China Syndrome. The reason it is not working it's way down any further, is because the radioactive daughter products are no longer generating anywhere near as much heat as they did on the very first day of the accident. In fact, they are probably generating less than a million watts of power right now. Now that is a lot of heat: a million watts is ten thousand 100 watt light bulbs and you can imagine that that would generate a lot of heat. But compared to what was available on the first day, and the second day, and first week, the amount of decay heat is very small.

In addition, right above all this nuclear melted fuel, is an awful lot of water. The water is at less than 100 degrees Centigrade. It is not boiling. And what that means is that there is an enormous ability for that water to suck the heat out of the nuclear core as it lies on the bottom of the containment. I do not believe that the nuclear core can melt down through the containment and into the water table. There have been all sorts of postulations about violent explosions from this. And again, I do not think that can happen because the amount of heat available (now we are almost 9 months after the accident) is not great enough to create what is called a steam explosion.

So the good news is I do not think a China Syndrome can happen. I do not think this core can keep melting into the bottom of the earth. And I do not think there will be a steam explosion either. That is the good news.

Here is the bad news. That nuclear core is in direct contact with tons of water. And that containment, while not leaking down, is leaking out the sides. That contaminated water is going into every other building on site. And there is literally thousands and thousands of tons of water in other buildings. That water contains radioactive cesium, radioactive strontium, and it also contains nuclear fuel. There will be uranium in that water and plutonium in that water as well. We know for sure that that water is leaking into the ground water and into the Pacific Ocean. So while it is important to know that we are not going to release the nuclear core directly into the center of the earth, the problem is not over. And as a matter of fact, the problem will last for tens, perhaps even as long as 30 years because this contaminated water is in the basements of all the buildings on site. And not only does it contain cesium (that hangs around for 300 years), strontium (hangs around for 300 years), but it also contains plutonium and uranium and they have half lives of tens of thousands of years.

So the problem is, what do we do with all that water that is contaminated? It is already leaking into the groundwater. It is already leaking into the ocean. TEPCO is frantically catching it and putting it into tanks. But just today, TEPCO announced that they are running out of tank space on site, and eventually they are going to have to release those tanks into the Pacific Ocean. Now they will try to clean up some of the isotopes like cesium. But they have been unable to capture all the strontium. Strontium is a bone seeker that causes leukemia.

So we are not out of the woods. We are far from out of the woods. It will be 30 years before we capture all that nuclear fuel that is underneath that reactor vessel. And until then, it will be surrounded with water that is leaking into the groundwater.

I will keep you informed as situation develops.
Thank you. "

... a Transcript of an Arnie Video. That web page has a video too. I haven't watched it. I think this transcript is derived from the video.

30 cm is more like 12 inches ... but anyway.


my concern early on was that the combination of near-infinite energy source (gigawatt/ terawatt) and near-infinite water supply (ground-water near Pac. Ocean) would create an explosion, a different kind of nuclear explosion. basically an unfortunate experiment-in-progress, the biggest un-controlled nuclear-fueled steam explosion in the history of mankind

it appears that that will not happen at Fukushima and now we have the lesser but still monumentally terrible problem of dealing with the initial radiation releases, and the continuing leaks of radiation-water.

it's hard for me to look at seaside reactors like San Onofre & Diablo Canyon in the same light.

Mysterious "white web" found growing on nuclear waste

This is as fascinating as it is unsettling. Scientists at the Department of Energy's Savannah River Site — a nuclear reservation in South Carolina — have identified a strange, cob-web like "growth" (their word, not ours) on the racks of the facility's spent nuclear fuel assemblies.

According to a report filed by the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, "the growth, which resembles a spider web, has yet to be characterized, but may be biological in nature."

The Augusta Chronicle reported today that the "white, string-like" material was discovered amidst thousands of the spent fuel assemblies, which are submerged in deep nuclear storage pools within SRS's L Area Complex. (The image up top is of a similar nuclear storage pool at Italy's Caorso Nuclear Power Plant, which was decommissioned in 1990.)

The safety board's report claimed that the initial sample of the growth was too small to characterize, and that "further evaluation still needs to be completed."

I don't know what's more intriguing — the fact that the "growth" resembles a spider web, the fact that it may be biological in nature, or the fact that (even after collecting a sample of the stuff) we still don't know what it is or where it came from.

We've already tried getting in touch with both the Savannah River Site as well as the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board, but so far have been unable to speak with anybody to ask additional questions about the growth and where it's occurring specifically.

Full size
Could we be dealing with an unknown species of extremophile? It's possible — the Savannah River Site's storage facility (The L Area Complex mentioned above) stores spent nuclear waste in pools that are anywhere from 17-30 feet deep, and while that water is enough to protect the site's workers from radiation, the growth was reportedly found underwater on the submerged fuel assemblies themselves.

Having said that, we're still not clear on how much, if any, radiation this growth has actually been exposed to. Organisms with a natural resistance to radiation are said to be "radioresistant," and certainly do exist; Deinococcus radiodurans, for example (pictured here) is not only one of the most naturally radioresistant organisms on Earth, we've actually genetically engineered Deinococcus that can be used in the treatment of radioactive waste.

We'll keep you posted as we learn more about this mysterious growth. [The Augusta Chronicle]

Japan less likely to trust officials, main media, since disaster, Los Angeles Times by John M. Glionna, December 18, 2011:

Day One

Hajime Shiraishi’s moment of truth came when her online video news show, at the time relatively unknown, decided to buck the government line and call a story as it saw it.

On March 11 [... Tepco] announced on national TV that all was well [...]

Mainstream media dutifully reported that story. But not Shiraishi’s “Our Planet TV,” which soon broadcast a live interview with five Japanese reporters in Futaba City [...] The reporters, who had covered the Chernobyl disaster, told a very different tale.

Chernobyl Reporters: We’ve Never Seen Anything Like It

“They held up Geiger counters showing the level of radiation was almost beyond calculation,” said Shiraishi, a former network TV journalist who co-founded the Internet venture in 2001, hosts the show and reports many of its stories. “They’d never seen anything like it.”

For Shiraishi and others, that broadcast was a turning point, a moment many see as marking a profound shift in the trust younger Japanese place in government and media. Since that show, “Our Planet TV” viewership has shot up from about 1,000 to more than 100,000 as people have begun to seek alternative sources of information.

Just Learning About Fairy Tales

“As soon as we broadcast anything about radiation, viewership just goes through the roof,” Shiraishi said. “People tell us that they’re now just learning that what the government has been telling them all along might just be a fairy tale.”

Watch a segment of Our Planet TV here: Physicians diagnose Japan children: "He's affected by radiation... That's why he has dark circles under his eyes, pale face, and fatigue" -- "It would be better for him to move" (VIDEO)

14,000 U.S. Deaths Tied to Fukushima Reactor Disaster Fallout (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/medical-journal-article--14000-us-deaths-tied-to-fukushima-reactor-disaster-fallout-135859288.html)

Impact Seen As Roughly Comparable to Radiation-Related Deaths After Chernobyl; Infants Are Hardest Hit, With Continuing Research Showing Even Higher Possible Death Count.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima.

Authors Joseph Mangano and Janette Sherman note that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. The rise in reported deaths after Fukushima was largest among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks.

The IJHS article will be published Tuesday and will be available online as of 11 a.m. EST at http://www.radiation.org (http://www.radiation.org/).

Just six days after the disastrous meltdowns struck four reactors at Fukushima on March 11, scientists detected the plume of toxic fallout had arrived over American shores. Subsequent measurements by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found levels of radiation in air, water, and milk hundreds of times above normal across the U.S. The highest detected levels of Iodine-131 in precipitation in the U.S. were as follows (normal is about 2 picocuries I-131 per liter of water): Boise, ID (390); Kansas City (200); Salt Lake City (190); Jacksonville, FL (150); Olympia, WA (125); and Boston, MA (92).

Epidemiologist Joseph Mangano, MPH MBA, said: "This study of Fukushima health hazards is the first to be published in a scientific journal. It raises concerns, and strongly suggests that health studies continue, to understand the true impact of Fukushima in Japan and around the world. Findings are important to the current debate of whether to build new reactors, and how long to keep aging ones in operation."

Mangano is executive director, Radiation and Public Health Project, and the author of 27 peer-reviewed medical journal articles and letters.

Internist and toxicologist Janette Sherman, MD, said: "Based on our continuing research, the actual death count here may be as high as 18,000, with influenza and pneumonia, which were up five-fold in the period in question as a cause of death. Deaths are seen across all ages, but we continue to find that infants are hardest hit because their tissues are rapidly multiplying, they have undeveloped immune systems, and the doses of radioisotopes are proportionally greater than for adults."

Dr. Sherman is an adjunct professor, Western Michigan University, and contributing editor of "Chernobyl - Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment" published by the NY Academy of Sciences in 2009, and author of "Chemical Exposure and Disease and Life's Delicate Balance - Causes and Prevention of Breast Cancer."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issues weekly reports on numbers of deaths for 122 U.S. cities with a population over 100,000, or about 25-30 percent of the U.S. In the 14 weeks after Fukushima fallout arrived in the U.S. (March 20 to June 25), deaths reported to the CDC rose 4.46 percent from the same period in 2010, compared to just 2.34 percent in the 14 weeks prior. Estimated excess deaths during this period for the entire U.S. are about 14,000.
EDITOR'S NOTE: A streaming audio replay of a related news event will be available on the Web at http://www.radiation.org (http://www.radiation.org/) as of 4 p.m. EST/2100 GMT on December 19, 2011.

Fukushima - Total Cost

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4spUp_LzEPM

Uploaded by wepollock on Dec 21, 2011
Arnie Gundersen of Fairwinds Associates (a leading nuclear expert) and Warren Pollock ( http://www.wepollock.com )redefine the Fukushima nuclear incidents (meltdowns and explosions) in terms of human and total cost. Its easy to look at the details of a highly complex speciality, but it has been hard to quantify the cost and risk of nuclear power up to now! We talk about the rate of failure of nuclear being so high that were that rate applied to aviation there would be no air travel. Nuclear is different in that you have no choice in trading risk for travel, or in this case risk for energy. During 9-11 human value in the western world was quantified in an actuarial model which put each person at a value of $1.8 million dollars. Gundersen explains that up to 1 Million people will be damaged by this incident which puts the total damage well into the trillions of dollars. The full cost of nuclear power has to consider human cost and costs of contamination to the environment. We clarify some important issues regarding radiation and particulate matter.

I recall reading about abnormal amount of miscarriages in US soon after the event too. Perhaps it was in this thread...

http://www.presstv.ir/usdetail/216812.html

"14,000 US dead in 14 weeks after Fukushima meltdown"

"The authors write that that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks following the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. Most of the deaths occurred among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks, the authors note."


it appears that there is a correlation between nuclear incidents such as Chernobyl & Fukushima & SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome).

i understand their vulnerability, and can only guess that it's related to assimilation of radiation via food products, e.g. infant formula & milk.


"The arrival of a radioactive plume over the United States following the March 11 disaster was downplayed by the establishment media despite the presence of levels of radiation in air, water, and milk hundreds of times above normal.

The health impact of the radiation released from Fukushima was also downplayed by the Japanese and U.S. governments."

Yes, it was this thread, MN. Seems the majority of them were in their first 2 weeks of life.

It was around the time oldmansmith let us know he was kind of anxious because they were expecting their newborn within a very few weeks. The GOOD news is, the wee one will be

Close Down California's Nukes?
In the ongoing wake of Fukushima, growing numbers of Californians are beginning to seriously question the wisdom of continuing to let private utilities operate a total of five reactors all located in earthquake and tsunami zones - just like those at Fukushima - at Diablo Canyon and San Onofre.

On Oct. 11, 2011 a forum on the issue was held in San Clemente, the town closest to San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), operated by Southern California Edison.

In a program co-organized by San Clemente Greens/SanOnofreSafety.org(SOS), members of the City Council and a capacity crowd of citizens listened to and questioned a list of speakers including Helen Caldicott and Arnie Gunderson (on live video feed).

The final speaker was Danial Hirsch of CommitteeToBridgeTheGap.org, a professor at UCLA.

Days later the City Council voted to approve a staff report urging consideration of the many safety issues which remain unaddressed regarding SONGS and public safety.

Here is Part 1 of what Hirsch had to say. Part 2, the Q&A, will be posted soon.

http://janettesherman.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/122011_IJHS_Article_42-1F.pdf

"PRESS RELEASE—Janette D. Sherman, MD
12-20-2011

This report, An Unexpected Mortality Increase in the United States Follows Arrival of the Radioactive Plume from Fukushima: Is There a Correlation? published in the International Journal of Health Services today, is not new science, but confirms research done over the decades as to adverse effects caused by radioisotopes to the unborn and the very young because of their rapidly developing cells, immature immunological systems and relatively small weight.

As background, in the 1950s, I worked for the Atomic Energy Commission (the forerunner of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission) at the Radiation Laboratory, University of California in Berkeley and the US Navy Radiation Laboratory at Hunter’s Point in San Francisco. Near 60 years ago, we learned that radiation could damage animals and plants and cause cancer, genetic damage, and other problems.

The issue of the danger from nuclear power plants is not just the engineering, but biology and chemistry. We have understood for decades where and how radioisotopes interact with life systems.

Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 have half-lives of approx 30 years. It takes 10 half-lives for an isotope to fully decay, thus it will take 300 years or three centuries before radioactive cesium and strontium will be gone.

Cs-134, Cs-137 and Sr-90 continue to be released from Fukushima in tons of contaminated water that is making its’ way across the Pacific Ocean. Cesium concentrates in soft tissue, strontium in bones and teeth, of the unborn and young.

Immediately after Chernobyl the level of thyroid disease increased. Given the large amounts of radioactive iodine (I-131) released from Fukushima, thyroid disease will develop in those exposed in Japan, as well as in those exposed to lesser amounts throughout the northern hemisphere. Public health officials need to anticipate and prepare for these findings.

The highest levels of I-131 measured by EPA in precipitation varied from a high of 390 pico Curies (pCi) in Boise to 92 in Boston, with intermediate levels in Kansas City, Salt Lake City, Jacksonville and Olympia, WA. (Normal is about 2 pCi)

Not every system was evaluated after Chernobyl, but of those that were: wild and domestic animals, birds, fish, plants, fungi, bacteria, viruses—even humans—were altered by the radiation, often for generations.

Birds in the 30-kilometer “exclusion zone” of Chernobyl display small brain size, alterations of normal coloration, poor survival of offspring, and poor adaptability to stress,

Recent, independent studies conducted in Scandinavia shows a decline on academic performance in children exposed during the Chernobyl fallout.

80% of children in Belarus are considered un-well by government standards.

Unless the earth stops turning, and the laws of biology, chemistry and physics are rescinded, we will continue to see sickness and harm spread to the children of Fukushima, the same that occurred after Chernobyl. We ignore history at our peril.

A whistle-blower of Tepco leaked the actual situation of Fukushima plant.
He left his comments on a Japanese forum. Here are the messages.

<Translatio>
Boring survey around reactor 2 is coming to the climax. As a result, the announcement of the government and Tepco has to be denied. If it’s soft material, they can do horizontal boring with such a weak equipment (like the top picture ) but when it comes to the concrete of the reactor building it’s impossible. They need to do boring with a foreign heavy equipment at an angle. They do boring to reach to under the container vessel. (like the bottom 2 pictures)

<Translation>
When they do boring where they don’t need to take a sample they drill roughly with this green rotary diamond bit but the dust is lethal because it’s too radioactive. When they need to take a sample, they change the diamond bit to hole saw type of bit. However, diamond is weak for the heat so when it’s hotter than 500℃ they use the standard type of the tungsten carbide instead. The bottom 3 pictures are the samples taken.

Taking a part of the concrete slag sample. Put it into the lead case (Chiyoda technol (http://www.c-technol.co.jp/technol_eng/index.html)) and take it to a lab.
I don’t know if it’s because they gave sea water to cool down or because it’s brackish area, if natrium (sodium salt) of sea water made a chemical reaction with calcium carbonate in the concrete to become diuranate natrium (sodium diuranate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_diuranate)) or not, it looks yellow as yellow cake.
Probably the iron part of the core is uranium pellet unreacted – not sure yet because it’s still before the analysis.
It’s beyond the max reading of 500X100 CPM. These yellow concrete slags come out from under the building one after one. It means that the container vessel is melting like honeycomb at least – doesn’t it? Otherwise why would metal uranium comes out of there ?

wore protective clothing. When it’s taken out, it was over 400 ℃ but now it’s cooled down to 100 ℃.
Can you see this big metal crystal (extremely radioactive) and the oxidized concrete looking like yellow cake? Can you believe it is out of the container vessel. It’s over 500 mSv/h, my geiger counter went over the limit.
was scared so put it back to the shelter soon as I took a couple of the pictures.

Stockpile Cheap Essential Survival Minerals for Radiation Poisoning and Health
LINK TO ORIGINAL VIDEO SO YOU CAN UPLOAD ON YOUR CHANNEL IF YOU WISH... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHCPfZcyQUM Just hit the "remix this video" button
Unearthing the answers to Fukushima radiation poisoning; solutions are buried in 2 different types of mineral deposits. I am convinced "Ancient Humate "and "Zeolite" are God's one two punch for reducing the toxic effects of man made radiation from energy production and acts of war.
Radiation kills by replacing minerals in your body with reactive elements. All of these radio nuclei interchange with minerals essential to life that poison from within your body. Humates are ancient deposits of plants from an earlier time. These plants are rich in all of the minerals needed to sustain health in a micronized and ionic form. This is important. Your body can readily digest and assimilate the micronutrients and replace radioactive elements. This also adds protection from newly ingested radiation. Humic-based minerals are the basis for the "Dead Doctors Don't Lie" tapes. Radiation is just one reason for consuming humates.
Natural zeolites on the other hand are a subtractor- volcanic in nature. Zeolites are crystallized alumina silicates that contain millions of tiny ionic (negatively charges) tunnels that attract and trap positively charges molecules and hold them internally in the mineral matrix. Your body doesn't digest zeolite the way it digest humate. Zeolite simply attracts the garbage, picks it up, traps it and is carried out of your body via waste processes.
A quick search of "humates and zeolites" will yield you a great deal of information and sources for potential health products. Please keep in mind; both of these natural mineral products have been used with incredible health benefits on animals for years as important feed additives. Zeolites and humates have numerous additional uses other than as a human dietary supplement. There are no FDA approved zeolites or humates for use in humans. There a number of products that sell this "supposed" fact; many of them do cite human studies and testimonials and are labeled for human consumption. Other suppliers shun the wrath of the FDA and product liability insurance and refuse to sell for human consumption eventhough they may be identical.
Guess which products cost more?
Right now my wife (she's getting over breast cancer treatment) and I are using zeolite I buy from the feed store and bake out in the oven for an hour at 350 degrees. It cost about $10 for a 40-pound bag. We take ˝ a teaspoon in 3 ounces of water once a day. A bag will last years for this use. Its sold under the name Sweet PDZ.
We are using 1 ounce of Humic Minerals (Humate Tea) from the local health food store. It retails $32 for 32 ounces. I will be ordering a ton of dry humate from a mine in west Texas that will make thousands of gallons and cost $300. What's left over goes in the garden to remineralize the soil. To brew the tea I take a cup of dry humate product to a gallon of filtered water. Then I will use an aquarium pump and aerator ($10) to brew it with the bubbler for 24 hours. Then I will filter it and refrigerate it.
If you are on a tight survival budget a few bags of zeolite and a few bags of ancient humate might a lifesaver and budget saver too. Please research it yourself. I'm not a doctor and did not stay at Holiday Express last night.

Fishy Video: Most expensive tuna ever sells for $750,000

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxetF7o4aYI

Uploaded by RussiaToday on Jan 5, 2012
A bluefin tuna, bought for nearly three-quarters of a million US dollars has been sliced up and served to eager customers at a Japanese restaurant in Tokyo. The tuna, caught off northeastern Japan fetched a record 56.49 million yen, (about 736,000 US dollars,) on Thursday in the first auction of the year at Tokyo's Tsukiji fish market. The price for the 269-kilogramme (593-pound) tuna beat last year's record of 32.49 million yen (around 420,000 US dollars.) Though the fish is undoubtedly high quality, the price has more to do with the celebratory atmosphere that surrounds the first auction of the year. The winning bidder was Kiyoshi Kimura, the president of Kiyomura Co. which operates a nationwide sushi restaurant chain called Sushi-zanmai. The best slices of fatty bluefin, called "o-toro" in Japan, can sell for 2,000 yen (24 US dollars) per piece at Tokyo sushi bars. But the restaurant chain is offering the tuna at its usual price of 418 yen (around 5.44 US dollars) for an "o-toro", and cheaper for other less fatty parts of the tuna. With a long queue of customers circling the block around the restaurant, Kimura has limited orders to just one piece per person. The tuna was caught off Oma, in Aomori prefecture just north of the coast that was battered by the March 11 tsunami. Japan eats 80 percent of the Atlantic and Pacific bluefins caught, the most sought-after by sushi lovers. Japanese fishermen, however, face growing calls for tighter fishing rules amid declining tuna stocks worldwide.

This “arbitrary increase” in the maximum permissible dose of radiation is an “unconscionable” failure of government, contends Ruff. “Subject a class of 30 children to 20 millisieverts of radiation for five years and you’re talking an increased risk of cancer to the order of about 1 in 30, which is completely unacceptable. I’m not aware of any other government in recent decades that’s been willing to accept such a high level of radiation-related risk for its population.”

Natural Cellular Zeolite Powder : Micronized - 1 pound

http://www.zeolitesupport.com/store/images/P/zeopowder.jpeg

Natural Cellular Powdered Zeolite that we carry is of the highest quality micronized powdered zeolite, used by some MDs and felt by some researchers to be at least as powerful as the liquid when used in therapeutic quantities. It detoxifies and alkalinizes the whole body. Studies show that this form of zeolite activates the P21 enzyme in cancerous cells, and has potent anti-viral activity.
Zeolite is one of natures only negatively charged particles it is able to directly interact with the damaged cells and magnetically attract other floating debris. Heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic are extremely toxic to the body, and unfortunately are found everywhere in our society. Liquid zeolites are a very unique, complex structure that have a “honeycomb” shape. All these channels and cavities act as cages; trapping all these toxins inside of itself and then are eliminated from the body.
What we can say is that zeolite has a chelation-like effect in removing heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and other positively charged toxins from the system. Zeolites negatively charged crystalline structure is what makes this possible. Its crystals act as “cages,” inside of which are positive ions. These positive ions switch places with positively charged toxins in the body, tightly bind them, and excrete them completely. One of the benefits of binding toxins in this manner is that they are 100 percent excreted. Heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides all leave the system; they do not get deposited elsewhere in the body. Forty percent of zeolite binds heavy metals in the gastrointestinal tract, and 60 percent binds toxins in the bloodstream and at the cellular level. Zeolites binding power was proven during the Chernobyl disaster, when tons of it were used to remove radioactive cesium and strontium-90 before they contaminated local water systems. Acting primarily as a chelator, zeolite trapped these radioactive minerals within its crystalline cage structure.
Zeolite appears to remove toxins from the body in a hierarchical order. It first acts strongly to remove lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic. This first phase may take one to four weeks or longer. Zeolite then removes second-priority toxins, including pesticides, herbicides, and plastics. Zeolite appears to increase the rate of glucuronization in the liver, activating phase II of the glucuronidase function. This in turn removes pesticides, herbicides, and xeno-estrogens from the body, releasing them through the urine. Interestingly, it also appears to neutralize the aflatoxin poison.
A third function of zeolite is to trap pre-virus components, preventing the replication of viruses and their ability to make us sick. In this way, zeolite may play an important role as a broad-spectrum anti-viral. Viruses are produced in parts as on a production line, at the end of which the virus is fully constructed. Zeolite absorbs viral parts into the pores of the mirconized zeolite aggregates (not into the chelating-like cages described above). This explains why zeolite seems to block the development of many viral infections, including herpes virus 1, coxsachie virus B-5, ecco-virus 7, and adeno virus 5. Forty anecdotal cases of herpes zoster have reportedly been cured, with sufferers becoming pain-free in one to three days after beginning to take zeolite. Anecdotal testimony also reports that it is effective in alleviating or curing the flu, colds, hepatitis C, viral or heavy-metal induced multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Zeolite’s effect as an anti-viral appears to be a preventative function that builds up over time, beginning after approximately four to six weeks of use, when heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides have been mostly eliminated. There is anecdotal evidence, however, that in some cases its anti-viral effect seems to be immediate.
Zeolite also is a unique antioxidant. A traditional antioxidant works by absorbing excess free radicals into its system because it has an unpaired electron. In contrast, zeolite traps free radicals in its complex structure, inactivating and eliminating them. In this way, it acts as a complement to traditional antioxidants.
In addition, zeolite buffers the system towards slight alkalinity by establishing pH levels of 7.35 to 7.45, which is the optimum pH for the human body. The body’s pH level influences both immunity and brain function. An acid blood pH (7.34 or lower) creates a precondition for cancer. In an acid environment, brain cell function can also be impaired, causing depression, anxiety, stupor, paranoia, delusions, hallucinations, or even psychosis.
Zeolite also appears to balance the immune system , either up- or down-regulating it as needed. Although the precise mechanism for this is not entirely understood, this function is clearly very important in a world in which most people's immune systems are seriously compromised.
Because zeolite so powerfully removes various types of toxins from the body, it naturally increases energy and well-being. Users report improvements in mental clarity and a sense of peace, wellness, and happiness. These are what we term positive secondary effects. For example, clearing out heavy metals allows the body's magnesium stores to work efficiently with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the biological source of energy in the body. When this interaction is occurring optimally, people have more energy and experience greater well-being. One study has demonstrated that zeolite also appears to increase serotonin level, which is known to help alleviate some forms of depression.
Extraordinary health benefits of Cellular Zeolite - The Liquid, Activated Zeolite are:

• Absorbs free radicals*
• Activates P21 gene which is appears to halt the growth of tumors by directly suppressing growth signals.*
• Powerful antioxidant, improves the immune system*
• Helps balance the bodies' pH (acidity levels)*
• Remove heavy metals and toxins (mercury, lead, arsenic, pesticides, viruses, etc.*
• Provides a sense of mental clarity, improvement in general sense of well being*
• Non-toxic and 100% natural*
• On the FDA's GRAS list (generally recognized as safe)

Yoichi Shimatsu's update last night was DISTURBING, to say the least, on live Jeff Rense last night.

Fuku PREFECTURE not just the plants have been totally evacuated...Y.S. reported a "deep earthquake" along the fault line epicentered in the vicinity of Tokyo, broke cooling piping to spent fuel pool in Fuku 4...the massively overfilled trashcan/stockpiled MOX+ "spent fuel rods"...who are already in meltdown. There is a fear of a TREMENDOUS HYDROGEN EXPLOSION due to re-criticality of Pool #4's melt down currently WELL underway.

Furthermore, all the water in said cracked fuel pool is now instantly GONE!

Y.S. stated massive one way helo flights in-- under cover of darkness-- are flying to Fuku, and surmised they were the suicide missions of mothballed Chernobyl Helos. Talk of yanking out the rods and dumping them into the ocean are being actively discussed.

The size of the helos in this current "cover of darkness" op currently ongoing are "the big ones" aka, the heavy type used in Chernobyl dumping concrete efforts, but no mention of concrete into the terribly compromised/shaky/leaning/weakened Fuku#4 pool was made by Y.S. as he understands from his witnesses on the ground (in flight paths).

Again, mention was made of spiking plutonium levels in the prefecture and air above (not to mention the spilled coolant water) from Fuku Fuel Pool #4....

He also spoke to them running out of suicidal human "robots" at the complex.

Speaking of robots, he also spoke to the genuine r.c. robots which were ordered basically 3/12/2011, which still haven't arrived and even if they had, are so totally untested as to be unknown as to workability let alone efficacy.

Hopefully one of the good guys on here will find and post the re-play as they've been so gracious to do before on this forum.

It will be 10 months tomorrow since this horrendous and stupefying nuclear disaster was triggered, STUXNET opportunistically inserted between power down and before the tsunami struck.

Remember...38 of the 43 Japanese Nukes are STILL out of commission, and in melt down...we are only able to follow the most obvious...Fuku 1-6.

Fukushima: The Asian 911

Fukushima is the worst nuclear "accident" in history.

Many Japanese have come to the conclusion that not only is their government lying to them about how bad the radiation is but they are also lying to them about the entire nature of the incident. Ten months after the event we now have much more information from researchers all over the world.

Was it an Accident?
MUST READ.

More Japanese are waking up to the idea that Fukushima was not an accident. American researcher Jim Stone has done extensive research on this front (http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima.html). Shortly after breaking this story he was arrested, his business and home confiscated and he was repeatedly threatened. Now that is good journalism! A few points from his articles.

There was no 9.0 earthquake as reported by the Japanese and western media, only 3 5.0-6.0 earthquake as reported by the Japanese scientists on their seismic websites (http://www.kz.tsukuba.ac.jp/%7Esakai/113g.htm). This video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gM9phL_Im0I) of the earthquake in progress shows a busy newsroom shaking but people are still typing and going about their day. a 9.0 is 10 times stronger than an 8.0 and 100 times stronger than a 7.0 etc... A 9.0 would have sent everyone flying.
The meltdown started 21 minutes BEFORE the tsunami hit the coast.
The claim that the designers of the plant were not prepared for the "one two punch" of a Tsunami and Earthquake seems sensible at first but becomes absurd when one considers that a tsunami is defined as an earthquake that happens at sea and is a Japanese word. The designers of the plant most certainly took all such cases into consideration. The Japanese engineers are among the world's finest.
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk1.jpg
I see a Tsunami but no damage to these wooden and concrete buildings. A 9.0 earth quake would have reduced this entire coastal area to rubble before the Tsunami hit.
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk2.jpg
A 8.0 is 10 times stronger than a 7.0 and a 9.0 is 100 times stronger than a 7.0
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk3.jpg
The Kobe Earthquake caused massive devastation all over Japan. It was only a 6.8, a 9.0 is 100 times stronger and yet we saw no Earthquake damage at all. Even if it happened 200 miles out at sea, ALL of Japan would have been severely damaged.

Who did it? Motive and Who Benefits.

One year to the day of the meltdown on March 11 2010 Japan announces support for a Palestinian state.
Japan had offerred to begin enriching uranium for Iran (http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3853864,00.html) (YNET - Israeli News).
The Japanese were in mass protests (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/26/world/asia/26okinawa.html) against the US Naval base in Japan (NYTIMES). This base acts as the Rothchilds "ears to the ground" in Asia. The Rothchilds own 80-90% of Israel and the Balfour Declaration that created Israel was written to a Rothchild.
The Japanese as a people have long been aware of Zionism (NYTIMES) (http://www.nytimes.com/1995/02/05/books/the-elders-of-zion-in-tokyo.html?pagewanted=all), it's global plan and it's affect on Japan. The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion was widely distributed in Japan in the 80's
Henry Kissinger, iconic Zionist Geo political strategist, has been quoted as saying "I think now Japan will also develop nuclear weapons (http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/nn20060605a6.html). Then they will overcome public feeling against nuclear weapons. Their history is very warlike." Kissinger said in a meeting with Syrian President Hafez al-Asad at the Presidential Palace in Damascus on May 21, 1974.
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk4.jpg
Fukushima happened on March 11 2011, one year to the day Japan announced support for a Palestinian state... coincidence?
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk5.jpg
The Japanese are sick and tired of being an occupied nation 70 years after the war. Protests were reaching fever pitch and they needed to ...get the message...
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk6.jpg
Ahmadinejad: Spot me some Uranium bro? Koizumi: No problem bro, what about Israel though? Ahmadinejad: #%@ da police!

Circumstantial Evidence

-Israeli security firm Magna BSP was handling security at the plant.
-Manga BSP employees vacated the power planet and left for Israel one week before the meltdown.
-IMF chief Dominuque Strauss Kahn was supposed to meet with the Emperor of Japan right before the meltdown but canceled his visit only days before. Kahn is a known Zionist overlord and a major Mossad asset.
-Israel has the technical ablity to cause earthquakes (ISRAELNETWORKEWS.com) (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/133083). HAARP could also have been used as it employs the same technology and can cause earth quakes.

"(IsraelNN.com) The Seismological Division of the Ministry of National Infrastructure's Geophysical Institute will attempt to simulate an earthquake in the southern Negev on Thursday. The experiment, financed by the U.S. Defense Department, is a joint project with the University of Hawaii and is part of a scientific project intended to improve seismological and acoustic readings in Israel and its environs, up to a 1,000 km/621 mile radius."


STUXNET: A weapon of cyber mass destruction

STUXNET, the computer virus designed by the Israeli Mossad
STUXNET was used to sabotage an Iranian nuclear plant (NYTIMES) (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/16/world/middleeast/16stuxnet.html?pagewanted=all)
STUXNET had a passage from the Book of Ester in it's code. The book of Ester is from the Old Testament/Jewish Torah and has to do with the ritual murder and plot against Persia. Thus we can see the Israeli Iranian connection.
STUXNET was written specifically to target Siemens industrial controllers. Fukushima also runs on Siemens systems just like Iran.
A leading Japanese jounalist Yoishi Shimatsu has come forward (http://americanfreepress.net/?p=969) and publicly accused Israel of using STUXNET to sabotage Fukushima. Traces of the STUXNET virus were found at Fukushima after the incident.

Mini Nuclear Warheads

Reactor 3 was completely demolished. This was blamed on a hydrogen based meltdown. Scientifically this is impossible. Nuclear reactors are built to withstand amazing pressure and a hydrogen based meltdown could not have caused such destruction. Looking over the manual for Fukushima (http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/basic-ref/teachers/03.pdf) gives you insight into just how tough these structures were.
Fukushima was over engineered to resist even a 9.0 quake directly underneath it. This door to the reactor is over 6 feet thick. Only a nuclear explosion directly within it could destroy such a building.
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk7.jpg
Reactor 3, on the right, is completely destroyed. Nuclear reactors are among the most robust and well fortified structures on earth. The Israeli firm put the half ton nuke cameras inside the reactors as well...

History also shows us that the official story is not possible. The hydrogen meltdown at three mile island resulted in no damage to the buildings at all. Yet at Fukushima we got a mushroom cloud....

http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk8.jpg
Reactor 3 is on the left. A nuclear test in the desert is on the right. Meltdowns do not cause mushroom clouds...

The Smoking Gun

Reactor 4 is the World Trade Center 7 of Fukushima. It was turned off and de-fueled. Yet it also blew up....
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk9.jpg
Reactor 4 was turned off and de-fueled, yet still blew up in a mushroom cloud... Oh yeah. It also had a huge camera installed in it. You can not make this stuff up.

Perhaps it was those huge fancy cameras (http://defense-update.com/products/m/magna.htm) that looked just like nukes planted inside the reactors by the Israel security firm that had complete access to the buildings.... nah.
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk10.jpg
Israeli Security: We gotta install these cameras inside the reactors." Japanese Engineer: Why are they the size of a pillar? and why inside the reactor? Why they look like bombs? Israeli Security: Don't ask too many questions, bad for your health, anti-semite!!!

Previous Historical Evidence

Zionists have already nuked Japan, twice. Eustace Mullins in his Essay "What the Rothchild Empire did to Japan" (http://www.rense.com/general90/whyhir.htm) talks about who really gave the order to destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It was Rothchild agents in the City of London, not Harry Truman in Washington. The Rothchilds own 80-90% of Israel and their seal is the six pointed star on the Israeli flag. Thus Israel has already nuked Japan over 70 years ago.
Israel has used nuclear radiation against their own people. Operation RingWorm was the intentional poisining of over 100,000 Jewish Morroccan children (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJuwwwyKXjs). Shimon Peres oversaw the operation. The children were marched into the desert and bombarded with 35000 the maximum dose of radiation. 6000 of these children died immediately afterwards. These Moroccan Jewish children were 100% Semitic much like the native Palestinians, as opposed to the largely European non Semitic ashkenazi Jews who rule Israel. Thus it can be said that Israel is the most anti-semetic nation on earth.

How Bad is it

The ongoing nuclear meltdown at Fukushima is now confirmed to be at least 68 times WORSE than Chernobyl. Considering these stats about Chernobyl and then multiply them by 68X

-Chernobyl accident is equivalent to 500 nuclear bombs used in Hiroshima in 1945.
-The releases contaminated an estimated 17 million people to some degree.
-143,000 people have been evacuated from contaminated areas of Ukraine
-600,000 people took part in liquidating effects of the disaster, 100,000 of which already died or are now handicapped
-Cases of necrosis and thyroid cancer exceed average by 2 and 5 times correspondingly among the Chernobyl victims.
-There are 1.8 million people residing on the territories of Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus, which are still defined as contaminated
- For the 14 years since the disaster 300,000 died in Ukraine alone from the radiation sickness

Chernobyl had lasting radiation effects across all Europe but Fukushima is having effects around the world as the radiation is leaking right into the ocean. The ocean currents are carrying this radiation worldwide and tuna fish, which can swim 400 miles in a day are carrying it even faster. The jet stream is also playing a big part and moving this deadly radiation thousands of miles inland.
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk11.jpg
The radiation at Fukushima is not only being blown into the air but it is also leaking into the ocean sending it worldwide via the air and ocean currents.

Effects on the World

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has reported a 35% increase in the infant mortality rate in American north west cities. If you live in one of these cities and are pregnant there is a much higher chance that your baby will born dead.

The recent CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicates that eight cities in the northwest U.S. (Boise ID, Seattle WA, Portland OR, plus the northern California cities of Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, and Berkeley) reported the following data on deaths among those younger than one year of age:

4 weeks ending March 19, 2011 - 37 deaths (avg. 9.25 per week)
10 weeks ending May 28, 2011 - 125 deaths (avg.12.50 per week)

This amounts to an increase of 35% (the total for the entire U.S. rose about 2.3%). In Canads' the infant mortality rate for 2011 is up 44%.

Other nations have also been heavily affected, especially in Asia. The USA reports an infant death the moment it is born, all other nations do not report the death of a baby to the mortality rate unless it has been alive for sometime.

Many babies in Japan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2dghS1otAw) are being killed before their parents even see them because they are too malformed. The mothers are being told that the babies have died of natural causes. The Japanese government is doing everything possible to keep this information unknown to the general public.

Conclusion

Israel was responsible for the sabotage of the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

There was no 9.0 earthquake, only a tsunami most likely caused by nuclear warheads detonated at sea and a combination of HAARP technology. Israel could also have waited for a naturally occurring tsunami before activating their STUXNET worm and reactor nukes but as the date of this was one year to the day Japan announced support of a Palestinian state, the former scenario is more likely.

They are now holding Japan as a nuclear hostage. If Japan does not obey the will of Israel/Rothchild they will create more tsunami's with HAARP/nuclear warheads in ocean trenches and more nuclear meltdowns with the STUXNET virus and mini nukes.

The Japanese have now stopped any talk of supporting Palestine, stopped protesting the US military bases in their country, stopped enriching uranium for Iran and they have handed over control of their entire banking system to the Rothchilds. The Japanese government has ordered the media to stick tot he bogus story of the 9.0 earth quake and the "accidental" meltdown of the nuclear power plant.
http://www.silvergoldsilver.com/UserFiles/File/January/fuk12.jpg
ISRAEL: "Give us 6 trillion, forget Palestine, #$@ Iran and the base stays, don't say Sh!t or we blow up all your plants and drown u to death before you can do a damn thing. Got it ya chinky eyed mutants?!!!"
JAPAN: "Are you serious? how can you do this? We are human beings!"
USA: "He ain't playin, bro!"
JAPAN: "very well... we shall obey for the sake of my people."
GERMANY: "Ha Ha I'm laughing because it's soo not funny. We're shutting our plants down ASAP"
ISRAEL: CRITICAL HIT on all you bitches! Again!

Japan has now become the living laboratory for a nuclear experiment, again.

Jim Stone.


After being detained without charges or a phone call for six days, even after repeated requests to be allowed to make a call to let friends and family know where I was, and to be allowed to call 4 radio programs to cancel appearances, I was released without charge within an hour of FINALLY getting a call out in a way they did not plan for. They destroyed my business, destroyed the equipment and inventory, and forced me to flee. I have lost EVERYTHING and that is why I am now silent. Even posting this update is probably a huge risk. I am under severe threat and will not post another article until I am certain I have found safety in a foreign nation. I have been left too devastated to get out of the country and am living on the streets. That’s the price you pay for doing real research and getting the real truth out. Journalism, TRUTHFUL ground breaking journalism is DEAD in America.
Contrary to what is stated on Google, this article was NEVER DEBUNKED BY ASIAN WEEK. Asian week has a section where un-verified authors can post anything they want.

NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL

Israel's nuclear deterrent method exposed. This information was discovered as part of my fukushima report (http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima1.html) which wrecked my life, as I am forced to relocate now at least once every two weeks for safety. I might as well finish the job of wrecking my life; - here goes.

Israel is keeping a dirty little secret . . . . .
Jim Stone, Freelance Journalist, Jan 8 2012
There is a reason why the U.S. government is waging war all over the world, even obviously against the good of the nation.
There is a reason why the U.S. government rapidly rolled over and did the banker bailout without question, in an amount which exceeded the value of every mortgage in the country by more than 3x, and every mortgage in default by over 15x; an amount which will destroy America once the ripple effect is finished.
Many of you are no doubt scratching your heads, wondering why every elected president turns back on his campaign promises the second the inaguration is complete. Believe me, the corruption of American elected officials is not that deep. You cannot elect several presidents in sequence, and have them all perfectly screw the country, ESPECIALLY the way Bush and Obama did; they had their reason, and it is called NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL.
What if they never wanted to renig (at least not so completely)? What about Obama? And what about the other countries, which also screwed their people the same way? Why is it seemingly a universal truth, that all governments around the world are simultaneously going against the will of their people, in favor of the Jewish bankers and Israel?
I believe I have figured it out, and I have documented it.
I am going to tell you the hows and whys of Israel's dirty little secret - how they got their nuclear offensive capability in place, why they decided on the chosen method, and how they ended up using it.

Israel had a serious launch dilemma

Israel is in a unique predicament. It's small land mass and hostile neighborhood have made developing a space program and ballistic missile defense system all but impossible. Geography matters. Most nations are priviledged to have vast tracts of land suitible for space launches, or friendly neighbors who will permit the use of their airspace during a space launch. Israel is not one of them.
If a rocket is to be put to its most practical use, it must launch toward the rising sun to make use of earth's rotational velocity and add it to the speed of the rocket. If a rocket is launched towards the setting sun, it must first accelerate to the speed of the earth's rotation, and then an additional 1,000 mph just to get to where zero would have been with an eastward launch. Though it can be done, it wastes fuel and after launch another problem then presents itself - your payload will be traveling opposite to all the many thousands of other satellites and space debris in orbit and an eventual catastrophic collision is virtually assured. This has made westward launches both taboo and difficult. Westward launches are considered unacceptable, though Israel has done it.
http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/ballistic.jpg Israel has been stifled in space of because of these difficulties. The prime Eastward launch direction will violate both Jordani and Saudi airspace, because a rocket has to reach an altitude of 60 miles to be formally above, and not trespassing on a nation. Though a straight up launch which then turns East after an acceptable altitude is reached is possible, it will waste so much fuel and require such a large rocket that it will be too impractical to be considered an option. This has spelled doom for a land based ballistic missile defense system in Israel because only a small east to west launch corridor is available over the mediterannean. So while the Israelis have launched satellites into orbit through this window, a ballistic defense system which needs a full 360 degree launch direction to be fully effective is not possible. Israel was forced to both explore and implement other methods of delivering an effective nuclear deterrent.
http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/buildingowl.jpg
Sadly, their only affordable option allowed them to screw the world

What if Israel came up with a way to smuggle nuclear weapons into the most sensitive areas of all the developed nations - areas where if anything big goes BOOM all is lost? Could there be a clandestine reason for the supposed shortage of Helium 3, which is needed in the type of radiation detectors required to detect a nuclear weapon? You can block protons, but neutrons are difficult to shield entirely, and you can forget about neutrinos - you can't hide a nuke from the right detector, one which uses helium 3 in it's detector element. Why did America and all other nations somehow run out of Helium 3 a few years ago, which simultaneously left their borders open to nuclear weapons smuggling? Coincidence? I think not. The picture to the left appears to be a legitimate camera in a body that could also hold a nuke. It does not appear to actually be a nuke. HOWEVER http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/diagram.jpg This particular one in the above picture appears to be a bona fide nuke camera. Note the differences - At the top of the gun barrel, there is a reinforced area to survive the ignition of the projectile propellant. The "cameras" look superficial and appear to be mounted to the surface of the barrel with very little intruding depth. Think about the webcam in your laptop or the camera in your Iphone - Nowadays that's all the depth a very good camera needs if price is no object, so it is easy to build convincing and deceptive functionality into the unit to justify it's enormous size.
Israel's main strategy has been to smuggle nuclear weapons into sensitive areas of nations under the disguise of security contracts. These security contracts use "proprietary" equipment that is maintained only by Israelis. In this particular case, the proprietary equipment is stated to be "biscopic" cameras, which are put in place by security companies operating as front companies on behalf of the Israeli Defense Forces. Magna BSP, the company which provided"security" at the Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan is one of them. During my investigation of the Fukushima mission, I studied Magna BSP and discovered that in addition to Japan, they also got security contracts in Brazil, Germany, and the United States. All 4 of these countries have provided massive financial "bailouts" to zionist bankers, and though I have not proven that all of these countries were blackmailed with the threat of a nuclear armageddon, the coincidence is very suspicious and given what happened in Japan, even a little more than suspicious. In the fukushima report (http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima1.html) the reason given was that Japan offered to enrich uranium for Iran. But shortly thereafter, Japan damaged it's economy by surrendering 1.7 trillion USD to Jewish bankers even though no prior debt was owed.
http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/prettyowl.jpg This particular "camera" is a concept drawing of what the final design will look like. But don't count on it looking that way after this report or the Fukushima report, many large items which can be excused off as security devices can also house a nuke. Additionally, other types of contracts use equipment that is very suitable for housing an implosion nuke, which is often much smaller than a gun nuke.
Gun type nukes do not produce very predictable results which is a good explanation for why the other two exploded reactors did not produce a mushroom cloud. Reactor 4, which "exploded" had been de-fueled and did not even have a core in it, this was proven with the classified photos in the Fukushima report. (http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima1.html) This made the explosion at reactor four flatly impossible. The un predictability of gun nukes is a good reason to move away from them, so I expect the gun nuke camera to be a dying breed. Perhaps the Israelis wanted to get rid of old nuclear inventory, and from the crudeness of the looks of the units delivered thus far, I suspect exactly that. I strongly recommend you take the time and read the Fukushima report in full, it's all documented from official sources, contains about 7 hours of reading material and took hundreds of hours to research out.
With the inadequately explained and inexcusable absense of helium 3, most of the world's borders are now wide open for Israel to get it's deterrent fully in place and have been for some time. I believe Israel has multiple nuclear weapons in place in key areas of the United States, Germany, Japan and Brazil, and has plans for or has succeeded in smuggling nukes into many other countries. Israel has been able to make hundreds of nuclear weapons from the reactor in Dimona, and has stolen enough nuclear material from America to make additional thousands. I believe Israel is holding the world nuclear hostage. If anyone says anything, opens their mouth, they get killed. If a nation goes against the will of Israel, and does not submit financially, BOOM. And it will all be blamed on the environment, a meteor, or "terrorists" because after all, TERRORISTS smuggle nukes in through the ports, RIGHT?

Serpo,
the one thing Jim Stone didn't uncover that Yoichi Shimatsu did is this: all 6 nukes were operating at the time. The reason for the statements that only 3 were, is that that is all the govt had issued operational licenses for, and thus the other 3 were operating unlicensed.

Sheds a new light on this "Fuku 4 was off and defuled" bullpuckey, yes?

True Stories by An Ex-TEPCO Nuclear Designer "TEPCO Is A Terrible Company" (Apr. 29, 2011)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDYITvGlCZg
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDYITvGlCZg

Uploaded by tokyobrowntabby on Oct 6, 2011
Please click on "cc" to show English subtitles. Mr. Toshio Kimura is a former nuclear designer at TEPCO. He used to work at Fukushima-1 Nuclear Power Plant. When the earthquake/tsunami hit, he was living 15km west of the plant, operating his own business of solar power generation, surfing on his free time. After the explosion of Unit 1 reactor, he and his family evacuated to Kochi Prefecture, where they live now.

Mr. Kimura has given talks at various anti-nuclear rallies around the country. This video is one of his talks at the rally held in Kochi Prefecture on April 29, 2011.

************************************************** *******
The rest of his talk goes like this:
************************************************** *******
As to the situation of the plant, 70% of the fuel in Unit 1 have melted. I haven't looked at the most recent data, but the reactor pressure is increasing, the radiation dose inside the containment vessel is increasing, and iodine-131 is not decreasing. It has started to decrease a bit recently, though. All this means is there definitely has been re-criticality until recently. Because, as you know, the half life of iodine-131 is only 8 days. And yet, after more than a month from the accident, we still see an increase in the level of iodine-131. That itself proves there has been re-criticality, because otherwise iodine shouldn't have been produced. A neutron hits the atom of uranium-235, the atom splits, and iodine-131 is produced. That's how the nuclear fission occurs. And through the mechanism that can be explained by Einstein's theory of relativity, heat is produced. The heat boils water to create steam, and the steam spins the turbin. The turbines are connected in series and drive the electrical generator to produce electricity. This is the mechanism of electricity generation.

Iodine-131 is not produced unless neutrons cause nuclear fission. That's why I'm saying there has been re-criticality. Nuclear Safety Commission won't admit it. TEPCO won't admit it. The government won't admit it. But really there has been re-criticality until very recently. This is the fact. Any professional with the knowledge of physics of nuclear reactor can tell. This re-criticality issue is one of the things they are hiding from you.

Another lie is that 0.24 microsievert/h is safe. This is wrong.

These are the things I wanted to tell you today. Here in Kochi, you don't have to worry too much because Kochi is quite far from Fukushima. But please look at the radiation dispersion forecast by the German Weather Service. If you notice the north-east wind is blowing throughout Japan, don't ever let children get wet in the rain. And women who want to have children in the future. Don't let them go outside on such days. We, middle-aged men are okay, including me.

It's because cesium-137 is dangerous. Its half life is 30 years. It's dangerous because it tends to accumulate in muscles. Men have relatively more muscle. Even if cesium-137 gets absorbed inside their bodies, it spreads thinly throughout their muscles. On the other hand, women don't have much muscle, and the absorbed cesium tends to concentrate in the organs like mammary gland and uterus. It may increase the incidence of breast cancer. But this is something you can prevent if you have the knowledge. If you have to go outside on such days, please wet the gauze inside the mask first and put on the mask before you go out.

Also, you have to be careful with iodine, too, while it is still released. Iodine accumulates in seaweed and it is easily absorbed from your hair. So, one way to prevent iodine absorption is to put on a hat so that your hair won't get wet from the rain.

You haven't heard about such things, have you? Nobody tells you that. The government doesn't tell, either. But I wanted to let you know. That's why I came here today.

I don't want to talk too long, but one last thing.

I hear some wise old men protected a very beautiful fountain located within the radius of 30km from Chernobyl plant. How they protected it is mysterious. I studied nuclear energy intensively and I studied physics to some extent. But still I believe in an invisible power. Those wise old men didn't evacuate after the accident. How did they protect the fountain? By prayer. I'm not sure how many of you believe in the power of prayer. But if you can believe in it, even if just a little, then please pray in the morning that the Fukushima-1 nuke plant may rest in peace. And remember, we've benefited from radioactivity because it produces electricity. So, please pray that the radiation will be neutralized and vanished by our sense of gratitude and our love. I hope we'll pull together and pass that prayer over to the next generation.

That's all I had to say. Thank you.

Syunsuke Yamaoka, representive of Access Journal, entered the site of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant illegally with a helping hand of the worker there and found Yakuza gangs arranged jobs there, especially jobs inside the buildings which would make the workers' life get at stake and that the relationship between Yakuza gangs and TEPCO had got closer than that before the accident.
And he wrote a book 'Fukushima Daiichi Genpatu Sennyuki(Book of Infiltration into Fukushima Daiichi Nuke Plant)' about that with interviews with three workers working there.

Japan Gov’t Data: 65% of marine life test positive for cesium in Nov. —

Average catch exceeds new radiation limits @ 111 Bq/kg
http://enenews.com/japan-govt-data-65-of-marine-life-test-positive-for-cesium-in-nov-average-catch-exceeds-new-radiation-limits-111-bqkg
And evidence has emerged that the impacts of the disaster on the Pacific Ocean are worse than expected. [...]

In November, 65 per cent of the catches tested positive for cesium (a radioactive material created by nuclear reactors), according to a Gazette analysis of data on the [Japan] fisheries agency’s website. [...]

In July, cesium levels stopped declining and remained stuck at 10,000 times above pre-accident levels.

It meant the ocean wasn’t diluting the radiation as expected. If it had been, cesium levels would have kept falling. The finding suggested radiation was still being released into the ocean long after the accident in March, [oceanographer Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist at the non-profit Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Woods Hole, Mass] said in an interview.

“It implies the groundwater is contaminated or the facility is still leaking radiation.”

In response to your question beefy..............to tell you the truth it is difficult to understand the difference between liquid and powered zeolite (micronised).
The liquid people tell you that theirs is best and the powered people tell you the liquid dosnt work as how can it .

Edit... the above clip was put in later and this guy seems to of investigated the difference between liquid and powder and he states that powdered is the go..........he also mentions 5gms

Reading testimonials it looks as the liquid stuff does work from results people had but i settled on the powdered variety for now any way.
27$ Aus (I am a kiwi living in Australia) for 450gms of powdered miconised zeolite ,outside of Australia its 36$(includes postage)

Clinoptilolite Zeolite


from

Not sure where I read about the 5gms (one level teaspoon roughly) but I remember reading that amount and it seems about right.

Still will look into the liquid varieties later.

It took no time to arrive ,couple of days.

also of interest is the info on chlorine....http://www.safesalt.com.au/showerfilter.html

Preparations going on for reactor endoscopy


Preparations are under way to use an endoscope to examine the inside of a containment vessel of the damaged No. 2 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

At the No.1, 2, and 3 reactors of the plant, the nuclear fuel has melted down, but the exact state of the fuel and details of the inside of the containment vessels are yet to be confirmed. This is causing a big problem for the operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, in its continued efforts to stabilize the cooling of the reactors and its plans to decommission them. The reactors were damaged by the March 11th earthquake and tsunami.

On Tuesday, 10 groups of 4 workers each entered the first floor of the No.2 reactor building from the northwestern side. The workers drilled a hole in the containment vessel to insert an endoscope. An industrial endoscope that can withstand high levels of radiation will be used.

The utility says the workers were exposed to up to 3 millisieverts of radiation. The company says the workers had rehearsed the job at the No. 5 reactor, the same type as the No.2, in order to minimize their exposure.

TEPCO says Tuesday's operation went smoothly and it will insert the endoscope on Thursday as scheduled. It hopes to gain the first internal view of one of the damaged reactors since the accident.

i have no doubt but that recent (last 2 decades) changes in our medical state as a society -
* increased thyroid cancer rates discussed in the article
* increased breast cancer rates in young women
* decreased fertility rates in younger couples

are related to the soup of chemicals and radiation that we live in.

not to mention, the atomic testing that the US military did in Nevada in the 1950's & 1960's.

most of the changes discussed in that article are based on trends that precede 3-11.


i'm not saying that changes noticed post 3-11 - e.g. rise in first year infant deaths - are un-related to 3-11. or that we should trust the FDA/USDA to keep our food safe, post-BP (April 2010) or post Fukushima.

Remembering back to the early days of this catastrophe we see that the readings around that area were off the hook. It was obvious that this place has over the years contaminated lands all the way to the east coast with Montana and all those beautiful southern parts of Washington being hit the hardest.

We remember the readings were off the hook BEFORE the ongoing disastrous horrible event in fukushima, and were actually higher than those that were being recorded by the same equipment at the same place there in Washington later.

This is a huge issue that was put out there to all time and time again and yet, did anyone actually investigate this FACT? Was anyone even interested in WHY there were so many places up north there that were reading such high radiation counts before fukushima? The problem now is, the data is hard to find and the charts are long gone just like all the other real plume maps and dispersion charts for america.

People still do not care enough to stop it. They continue to exist and slowly die up there in lower eastern Washington and Montana. Is ignorance really bliss, or is it just a killer no one cares about?

How many of you remember these charts from the way back machine?

#Radioactive Firewood Resulted in 43,780 Bq/Kg Radioactive Ashes in Nihonmatsu City (http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2012/01/radioactive-firewood-resulted-in-43780.html)


So, clearly there was a good reason why IAEA went to measure the radiation levels in Nihonmatsu City, Fukushima Prefecture when they came in March 2011 right after the March 11 nuclear accident.

From Jiji Tsushin (http://www.jiji.com/jc/eqa?g=eqa&k=2012011900514) (1/19/2012):

環境省は19日、福島県二本松市内の民家で使用されたまきストーブの灰から、1キロ当たり4万3780ベク レルの放射性セシウムが検出されたと発表した。

The Ministry of the Environment announced on January 19 that 43,780 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium was detected from the ashes in a wood stove used in a personal residence in Nihonmatsu City, Fukushima Prefecture.
Ashes are used as soil amendment.

The safety standards for firewood and charcoal were not even in place until November last year. According to the Forestry Agency, the safety limit for firewood is 40 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium, and 280 becquerels/kg for charcoal so that the resultant ashes would not contain more than 8,000 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium.

The Agency's Q&A (http://www.rinya.maff.go.jp/j/tokuyou/shintan4.html) says:

From the incineration tests, when 1 kg of firewood is burned it results in 5 grams of ashes, and 1 kg of charcoal in 30 grams of ashes, with 90% of radioactive cesium remaining in the ashes.

That means radioactive cesium density in 1 kg of ashes is 182 times as much as that of 1 kg of firewood, and 28 times as much as that of 1 kg of charcoal.

2% of radioactive cesium in firewood/charcoal, when used in cooking, was transferred to the food.Oh wait a minute. 10% of radioactive cesium that is in the wood/charcoal is released in the air when burned?

Reading further, the Agency openly encourage the bundling of radioactive firewood/charcoal that exceed the safety limit with those without any cesium detected:

It is OK to bundle firewood or charcoal that exceed the safety standard with firewood or charcoal that does not exceed the safety standard, and sell the bundle as long as it is not shipped across the prefectural border. [What's the point of that?]

To dispose the ashes of unknown radioactive cesium density, do not use as soil amendment in gardens and farmlands. Dispose them appropriately as waste products.
How?
The Agency does not say. I don't think ANY seller of firewood or charcoal is measuring the radioactivity, and I don't think any user of wood stove who gets the wood from the mountains in their backyard is measuring it either.

They say that's how the soil contamination after the Chernobyl accident remained high - cut the woods that were doused with radioactive materials, burn them in stoves for heat and cooking, use the ashes as soil amendment to grow food.

That's happening in Japan now, thanks partly to bureaucrats in the government ministries but also to the general public who still don't connect the March 11 Fuku I accident with radioactive materials all around them.

Japan's Government-Industrial Complex to Create Small "Japan" in Southern India (http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2012/01/japans-government-industrial-complex-to.html)

The news was there on Yomiuri Shinbun on January 5, 2012, but little noticed until someone picked it up and spread on Twitter overnight.

The Japanese government in close collaboration with the big businesses in Japan is to build a city in southern India that will house 50,000 people, with "Japanese-quality" infrastructure including seaside resort, industrial park, hospital, shopping mall, and golf course (of course).

Many on Twitter are speculating that this is part of the plan by the Japan's political and business elites to abandon ship (Japan), and part of the reason for the Noda administration's insistence on the tax hike despite the incipient recession.

Thanks, PatColo.

If one listens to Yoichi Shimatsu on Monday last (1/16/2012) you'll hear him and Rense discuss this development in considerable detail. Jeff was diss'ing all over the place, Yoichi kept trying to get facts into the convo from his investigative journalism. After awhile, he joined Rense in the banter.

Gallows humor?

Iran Signs Own Death Warrant

The Iran Attack is On. Which Weapons Group to Use?


… by Bob Nichols (http://www.veteranstoday.com/author/bobnichols/)


(San Francisco) – For more than 20 years American Presidential campaigns have warned about the exquisitely elaborate fantasy and dire danger of a nuclear armed Iran; nuclear weapons that Iran does not have and does not have the tools to make. So, why the continued big donor Presidential campaign interest?
The huge uranium business in the United States wields enormous power and influence in American military, business and political circles. In stark contrast, the US Navy has possession of two thirds of America’s nuclear weapons.
Since they do not make big campaign contributions the Admirals and Chiefs therefore have no voice in this Doomsday scenario. An interested party must “pay to play.”
However, 104 American reactors and the very profitable associated businesses do make intense campaign contributions and expect real results from temporarily leased or fractionally owned politicians, American Presidents included.
The pro-nukers also fully expect the powerful American military to protect their global nuclear related businesses in addition to the politicians handing out lavish cash subsidies.
Nuclear reactors make heat, high level nuclear waste and plutonium for nuclear weapons. Additionally, “All Reactors Leak Radiation All the Time.” The radiation routinely kills utility company customers and their kids.
The focused logic of nuclear weapons and “facilities” anywhere dictates that a family’s loss of a parent, fetus or child is always less important than the government’s desire to own thousands of nuclear weapons. This is true even though the nuclear destruction of the entire world requires only about 300 nuclear weapons.
Iran’s building nuclear weapons is not the pro-nuker businesses concern, though. The making and selling of nuclear fuel rods for reactors world wide with Russia backing them is their worst nightmare.
Iran Makes Its First Uranium Fuel Rod

http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/President-320x259.jpg (http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/President.jpg)Iran openly held a press conference and announced the manufacture of their first nuclear fuel rod on Jan 2, 2012. On Mar 8, 2008 President Admadinejad announced Iran’s intention to build 50,000 centrifuges for refining Uranium 235 to fuel rod purity (3% to 5% U235) for power reactors.
By way of contrast, the US produces all the uranium nuclear fuel it needs with only 3,000 centrifuges.
It appears Iran has every intention of entering the world wide nuclear reactor fuel market and competing with American, English, French, Japanese and/or any other nuclear fuel businesses.
With 50,000 centrifuges refining uranium Iran [as the Ruskies client state] can easily supply the uranium fuel needs for all the power and research reactors on the planet at a very competitive price, even a subsidized price if bought with a big reactor from the friendly Russian salesmen and women.
That is a direct threat to the continued Super Power status of the US and will not be tolerated. The US has clearly stated it is grounds for a preemptive nuclear strike.
Iran’s used-to-be-a-Super Power protector, Russia, is likely to look very favorably upon a request from any non-aligned country, existing Russian client state, or even an American client state for power or research reactors to be fueled by Iran.
This will easily amount to orders for hundreds of Russian nuclear reactors from Muslim countries.
That means it is a multi-trillion Ruble series of transactions. These transactions would change the balance of power in the world; thus, the US opposes the transactions.
Russian backing makes killing the Iranian salesmanship of uranium fuel rods for Muslim nuclear reactors built by Russians much more dangerous. The cold, calculating psychopathic officials involved get off on the thrill of staring death in the face, though.
http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/An-Iranian-official-holds-container-of-UF6-Tuscon-Citizen-l9049-1.jpg (http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/An-Iranian-official-holds-container-of-UF6-Tuscon-Citizen-l9049-1.jpg)An Iranian official holds container of UF6 Tuscon Citizen l9049-1

The whole situation will quickly escalate. It may have already escalated behind the carefully staged “events” we get to see to one of open international economic warfare.
This situation can turn on a dime into real warfare utilizing the oldest to the most advanced weapons available to the US Superpower and its client states.
One of the leading American Presidential candidates has already promised to strategically bomb Iran’s “nuclear sites.” Iran in return promised an “immediate and overwhelming response.”
The currently sitting American President stated, as a matter of fact, that Iran would not be permitted to have “nuclear capabilities.”
Only British Member of Parliament George Galloway points out to anyone, including callers on his radio show, that there are “more than 80 Iranian nuclear sites.” Thank you for that much needed voice of sanity, Mr. Galloway. That is called “war” in my book; not just a so-called simple, strategic and clean “surgical” strike.
Coded Phrases

American politicians typically talk in coded phrases about any nation’s nuclear capability since it would be extremely politically incorrect for the nation to clearly interfere in another nation’s business activities.
Economic Warfare is a critical specialty of the so-called Department of Defense, or War Department, in all stark reality. These word games are to fool a huge number of unquestioning American Consumers.
A Bewildering Array of Weapons

http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/TargetArm_Big-640x471.jpg (http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/01/17/iran-signs-own-death-warrant/targetarm_big-2/)Lawrence Livermore Research Labs - Target Arm

The American President and his successors may see fit to utilize a vast array of weapons for the attack on Iran. First off, it is vitally important to get a handle on the idea that Iran is the indirect target of a covert nuclear war and the war has proceeded without a break for the past 20 years.
Hundreds of thousands of tons of vaporized uranium munitions in neighboring Iraq and Afghanistan are brought to Iran throughout the year on the monsoon winds.
As a result of the wind and rain borne fine uranium dust, Iran’s Total Fertility Rate has plummeted in the past two decades. Iran’s people cannot now produce enough babies to continue the nation of Iran.
In this regard, the US Army’s Involuntary Sterilization of the Heathens & Population Control Program is a blazing success. Continued and even increased funding is assured under all the foreseeable American Presidents.
http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Baby-320x240.jpg (http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Baby.jpg)Fallajuah baby with 10 arms and legs FukuNoshima on Facebook

As a result of the success of these secret and hidden wars with Iran, which is a real world power, not an empty shell like Iraq, it is clear that the successive American war-making Presidents usually choose hidden, covert ways to kill and maim lots of people and destabilize whole countries and regions.
In fact, that is the name of the game for the huge American “Chaos Agency,” the CIA.
A leading contender for the weapon to destroy Iran is the War Department’s ability to wage a hidden war utilizing the Earth’s own processes against Iran.
That includes such war making capabilities as turning off or amping up monsoons; guiding typhoons, hurricanes and tornadoes; producing huge amounts of precipitation; generating bone numbing cold; droughts; and triggering earthquakes.

But, the simple fact is that Iran’s premier Russian Nuclear Power Reactor at Bushehr isn’t fully turned on yet after more than 35 years of construction.
The Iranians and Russians are afraid to turn it on and run the billion watt reactor at full power. They have every reason to be scared. Bushehr sits obscenely astride the convergence of three geologic fault lines.
http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/bushehr2_1892053c.jpg (http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/01/17/iran-signs-own-death-warrant/bushehr2_1892053c/)
I predict that the Bushehr Nuclear Power Reactor will suffer a devastating Earth Quake as soon as the Iranian and Russian Powers-That-Be order the billion watt reactor switched “On” and build up about 200 Tons of high level radioactive poison in the reactor.
The American Strike will be over in minutes and leave behind utterly devastating damage and tons of air-borne radiation from lethally radioactive current and used reactor cores.
The ensuing cascade of deadly radiation in Western and Central Asia will take out many countries that are already weakened by 20 years of nuclear war in Central Asia, including Turkey, Israel, Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia; for Muslims world wide – this does include Mecca and Medina. About 20 nations and a billion people will pay the price for Iran’s nuclear enterprise folly.
http://www.veteranstoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Bushehr-Nuclear-Power-Plant1-320x220.jpg (http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/01/17/iran-signs-own-death-warrant/bushehr-nuclear-power-plant1/)This is but another case of where the psychopathic “smartest guys in the room” at the DOD create a life on Earth ending apocalypse as the air-borne killer radiation spreads throughout the Northern Hemisphere.
Bushehr’s soon to be vaporized 200 tons of lethal reactor cores are projected to produce no less than a life choking 26,128.20 hot particles per cubic meter in the Northern Hemisphere up to 3000 meters in the sky (9,842.51 feet.)
Each highly radioactive hot particle is at least 85.78 times the Maximum Allowable Human Dose Permissible Per Year after 300 days in the doomed Bushehr reactor. The resultant RadPoison takes about a year to go world wide.
The then current American President can generously offer vast amounts of American Aid from CIA Contractors in response to an “Act of God,” … as the now quite quaint saying goes. Isn’t “plausible deniability” Grand for the most lethal armed force on the Planet!

Can't believe this ongoing crisis has been shuttled to the backpages like some used toiletpaper clinging to the sole of my wife's shoe as she emerges from a public restroom at the local WalMart.

Thought John Q was more "with it" than this...instead he's drinking the "cold-shut down" bs like is being passed around the world since 3/11/11?

Absolutely unbelievable. I would never have thought it happen here on GS. Gotta put GSUS'ers back to sleep at all costs I guess.

Update on Fukushima


http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/pictures/picture-7813.jpg (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/george-washington)
Submitted by George Washington (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/george-washington) on 01/23/2012 14:23 -0500



FUKUSHIMA RADIATION SPREADS WORLDWIDE (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/01/fukushima-radiation-spreads-worldwide.html) The University of California at Berkeley detected (http://enenews.com/over-epa-limit-cesium-levels-in-san-francisco-area-milk-now-higher-than-6-months-ago) cesium levels in San Francisco area milk above over EPA limits … and even higher than they were 6 months ago.

Finnish public television says that cesium from Fukushima (http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http://yle.fi/uutiset/kotimaa/2012/01/fukushiman_cesiumia_havaittu_suomen_metsissa_31814 04.html) has been detected in lichens, fungi and elk and reindeer meat in Finland.

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency confirmed (http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2012/01/14/radiation-cloud-not-harmful-sunshine-coast/) a radiation cloud over the East Coast of Australia.

The West Coast of Canada is getting hit by debris from Japan … and at least some of it (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/12/japanese-debris-to-hit-america.html) is likely radioactive.

The authors of the controversial study claiming 14,000 deaths in the U.S. so far from Fukushima are now upping their figure to 20,000 (http://enenews.com/study-authors-now-20000-excess-u-s-deaths-after-fukushima-not-14000-follow-up-article-looking-at-age-groups-cities-in-works). I spoke with nuclear health expert Chris Busby about their study, and he said that mortality figures fluctuate pretty substantially in the normal course, and so it is hard to know at this point one way or the other whether their figures are accurate.

And while there is no evidence linking them to Fukushima, Bed Bath and Beyond has recalled radioactive tissue holders (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2086870/Bed-Bath-Beyond-tissue-holders-recalled-contaminated-radioactive-cobalt.html#ixzz1jldY4b8E) after they set off police radiation monitors aboard a delivery truck This may just be an example of the incredibly lax handling (http://www.cracked.com/article_19607_the-6-most-reckless-uses-radioactive-material.html) of radioactive materials.

And thyroid cancers are – mysteriously – on the rise (http://yourlife.usatoday.com/health/story/2012-01-15/Doctors-unsure-why-thyroid-cancer-cases-on-the-rise/52582694/1) in the U.S.

TEPCO DRILLS A HOLE IN FUKUSHIMA REACTOR … FINDS THAT NUCLEAR FUEL HAS GONE MISSING (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/01/tepco-drills-a-hole-in-fukushima-reactor-finds-that-nuclear-fuel-has-gone-missing.html)

I noted (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/12/announcement-of-cold-shutdown-of-fukushima-reactors-is-based-on-a-political-decision-rather-than-science.html) last month in connection with Tepco’s announcement of “cold shutdown” of the Fukushima reactors:

If the reactors are “cold”, it may be because most of the hot radioactive fuel has leaked out.
***
The New York Times pointed out (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/03/world/asia/bursts-of-fission-detected-at-fukushima-reactor-in-japan.html?_r=2&pagewanted=all) last month:

A former nuclear engineer with three decades of experience at a major engineering firm … who has worked at all three nuclear power complexes operated by Tokyo Electric [said] “If the fuel is still inside the reactor core, that’s one thing” …. But if the fuel has been dispersed more widely, then we are far from any stable shutdown.”
Indeed, if the center of the reactors are in fact relatively “cold”, it may be because most of the hot radioactive fuel has leaked out of the containment vessels and escaped into areas where it can do damage to the environment.
After drilling a hole in the containment vessel of Fukushima reactor 2, Tepco cannot find the fuel. As AP notes (http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/01/19/radiation-rusty-metal-seen-in-tsunami-hit-reactor/#ixzz1jvjOgIwl):

The steam-blurred photos taken by remote control Thursday found none of the reactor’s melted fuel ….

The photos also showed inner wall of the container heavily deteriorated after 10 months of exposure to high temperature and humidity, Matsumoto said.

TEPCO workers inserted the endoscope — an industrial version of the kind of endoscope doctors use — through a hole in the beaker-shaped container at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant’s No. 2 reactor ….

The probe failed to find the water surface, which indicate the water sits at lower-than-expected levels inside the primary containment vessel and questions the accuracy of the current water monitors, Matsumoto said.
And while cold shutdown means that the water inside the reactors is below the boiling point, CNN reports (http://edition.cnn.com/2012/01/19/world/asia/japan-nuclear-reactor/index.html):

Massive steam and water drops made it difficult to get a clear vision….
Given that steam forms when water boils (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steam), this is an indication that the reactor is not in cold shutdown.

Asahi Shimbun reports (http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201201200044):

Tadahiro Katsuta, associate professor of nuclear engineering at Meiji University, said: "While an inside look was provided much sooner than I expected, it is still too early to rest assured. The water level is lower than estimated, so there is the possibility that the melted fuel that fell to the bottom of the vessel is not being adequately covered by water."
The Daily Yomiuri notes (http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national/T120120006919.htm) that Tepco has gone from 100% confident that water was covering the fuel to saying it is "quite unlikely" that there is any problem:

Drops of water fall like rain in the video, which was shot using an industrial endoscope. The drops were apparently the result of vapor--created by the heat from melted nuclear fuel--that cooled inside the upper part of the reactor containment vessel.
***
"It's quite unlikely nuclear fuel was exposed, as liquid from condensation is dripping down," a TEPCO official said.
Mainchi points out (http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/news/20120119p2g00m0dm104000c.html) that reactors 1 and 3 are probably in no better shape:

The fuel inside the Nos. 1 to 3 reactors is believed to have melted through the pressure vessels and been accumulating in the outer primary containers after the Fukushima plant lost its key functions to cool the reactors in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami on March 11 last year.
FUKUSHIMA COVER UP UNRAVELS: “THE GOVERNMENT CAN NO LONGER PULL THE WOOL OVER THE PUBLIC’S EYES” (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/01/fukushima-cover-up-unravels-the-government-can-no-longer-pull-the-wool-over-the-publics-eyes.html) As I’ve pointed out since day one, the Japanese government and Tepco have covered up the extent of the radiation released by Fukushima and its health effects on the Japanese and others. See this (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/01/japanese-canadian-and-american-officials-have-betrayed-their-citizens-by-hiding-radiation-akin-to-murder.html) and this (https://www.google.com/search?sclient=psy-ab&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&source=hp&q=site:washingtonsblog.com+%28japan+OR+fukushima%2 9+%22cover+up%22&pbx=1&oq=site:washingtonsblog.com+%28japan+OR+fukushima% 29+%22cover+up%22&aq=f&aqi=&gs_upl=16863l23806l0l23957l17l14l0l0l0l9l792l3581l 0.4.5.3.6-1l13l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=667&bih=297&emsg=NCSR&noj=1&ei=h_kcT_rZNbHXiAK-1bHDCA&sei=ofkcT_LCL8GfiQLe8JjFCA&gbv=2).
The New York Times notes (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/22/world/asia/wary-japanese-take-food-safety-into-their-own-hands.html?_r=2&pagewanted=all):

The government inspectors declared Onami’s rice safe for consumption after testing just two of its 154 rice farms.

Then … more than a dozen [farmers] found unsafe levels of cesium. An ensuing panic forced the Japanese government to intervene, with promises to test more than 25,000 rice farms in eastern Fukushima Prefecture, where the plant is located.

***

The repeated failures have done more than raise concerns that some Japanese may have been exposed to unsafe levels of radiation in their food, as regrettable as that is. They have also had a corrosive effect on public confidence in the food-monitoring efforts, with a growing segment of the public and even many experts coming to believe that officials have understated or even covered up the true extent of the public health risk in order to limit both the economic damage and the size of potential compensation payments.

Critics say … the government can no longer pull the wool over the public’s eyes, as they contend it has done routinely in the past.
“Since the accident, the government has tried to continue its business-as-usual approach of understating the severity of the accident and insisting that it knows best,” said Mitsuhiro Fukao, an economics professor at Keio University in Tokyo who has written about the loss of trust in government. “But the people are learning from the blogs, Twitter and Facebook that the government’s food-monitoring system is simply not credible.”

***

“No one trusts the national government’s safety standards,” said Ichio Muto, 59, who farms organic mushrooms in Nihonmatsu, 25 miles northwest of the Fukushima Daiichi plant.
The Japan Times reports (http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/nn20120122a1.html):

The government buried a worst-case scenario for the Fukushima nuclear crisis that was drafted last March and kept it under wraps until the end of last year, sources in the administration said Saturday.

After the document was shown to a small, select group of senior government officials at the prime minister’s office in late March, the administration of then Prime Minister Naoto Kan decided to quietly bury it, the sources said.

“When the document was presented (in March), a discussion ensued about keeping its existence secret,” a government source said.
In order to deny its existence, the government treated it as a personal document of Japan Atomic Energy Commission Chairman Shunsuke Kondo, who authored it, until the end of December, the sources said.
It was only then that it was actually recognized as an official government document, they said.

“The content was so shocking that we decided to treat it as if it didn’t exist,” a senior government official said.
Major Japanese broadcaster NHK purportedly stopped a reporter in mid-sentence (http://fukushima-diary.com/2012/01/312-nhk-whisper-dont-read-this-draft-about-exposed-fuel-rods/) on March 12th as he was discussing the exposure of the nuclear fuel rods above the cooling pool, telling him:

They say you mustn’t read this draft.
Finally, the Economist (http://www.economist.com/blogs/banyan/2012/01/japans-immigration-control) and Boing Boing (http://boingboing.net/2012/01/22/foreign-journalist-claims-corr.html) note that a Canadian journalist was grilled about who he spoke with at Fukushima, and:

Held, threatened, and shaken down for bribes before being detained without counsel or a phone call. He says he was eventually deported, though not before being ordered to sign a falsified confession and being threatened by an official at gunpoint.
(Many journalists and nuclear experts are alleged to have been monitored, harassed (http://fukushima-diary.com/2011/12/list-of-people-and-organizations-under-the-surveillance/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FukushimaDiary+%28Fukushima+D iary%29) or blocked (http://enenews.com/top-japan-radiation-expert-instructed-govt-fukushima-unauthorized-action) by the Japanese government.)

Japans citizens take food safety into their own hands – ‘The government’s food-monitoring system is simply not credible’ (http://www.desdemonadespair.net/2012/01/japans-citizens-take-food-safety-into.html)
Desdemona Despair, January 22, 2012

The repeated failures have done more than raise concerns that some Japanese may have been exposed to unsafe levels of radiation in their food, as regrettable as that is. They have also had a corrosive effect on public confidence in the food-monitoring efforts, with a growing segment of the public and even many experts coming to believe that officials have understated or even covered up the true extent of the public health risk in order to limit both the economic damage and the size of potential compensation payments.

Critics say farm and health officials have been too quick to allow food to go to market without adequate testing, or have ignored calls from consumers to fully disclose test results. And they say the government can no longer pull the wool over the public’s eyes, as they contend it has done routinely in the past.

“Since the accident, the government has tried to continue its business-as-usual approach of understating the severity of the accident and insisting that it knows best,” said Mitsuhiro Fukao, an economics professor at Keio University in Tokyo who has written about the loss of trust in government. “But the people are learning from the blogs, Twitter, and Facebook that the government’s food-monitoring system is simply not credible.”

One result has been a burst of civic activism, rare in a nation with a weak civil society that depends on its elite bureaucrats more than citizen groups to safeguard the national interests, including public health. No longer confident that government is looking out for their interests, newly formed groups of consumers and even farmers are beginning their own radiation-monitoring efforts.

More than a dozen radiation-testing stations, mostly operated by volunteers, have appeared across Fukushima and as far south as Tokyo, 150 miles from the plant, aiming to offer radiation monitoring that is more stringent and transparent than that of the government.

“No one trusts the national government’s safety standards,” said Ichio Muto, 59, who farms organic mushrooms in Nihonmatsu, 25 miles northwest of the Fukushima Daiichi plant. “The only way to win back customers is to tell them everything, so they can decide for themselves what to buy.”
http://www.canada.com/news/Canadian+fish+eaters+threatened+Fukushima+radiatio n+anti+nuclear+group/5997414/story.html#ixzz1kKTDb1eJ

CFIA is no longer conducting any testing of its own. It conducted some radiation tests on food imports from areas of Japan around the stricken nuclear plant in the weeks after the Fukushima accident.

Only one of the 169 tested products showed any radiation. CFIA stopped doing the tests last June, saying they weren’t needed.

“The quantities of radioactive material reaching Canada are very small and within normal ranges,” CFIA spokesperson Lisa Gauthier said in an emailed statement.

“They do not pose any health risk to Canadians, the food we eat or the plants and animals in Canada.”

In August, CFIA also tested a dozen samples of fish caught in B.C. coastal and inland waters. None of those tests found any radiation.

CFIA said it has no plans to perform any other radiation tests on fish in the Pacific or imports from other nations that fish in the ocean, including Japan.

CFIA now relies on Japanese authorities to screen Japanese food exported to Canada.

Thanks for the good info Serpo. I'm going to be adding some zeolite to my list of things to take. Seems it has alot of the same qualities of Diatomaceous earth that we have discussed here before.

Beefsteak

You mentioned sprinkling [clinoptilolite] zeolite on food.

I don't think that the best way to take it because it will bind some of the good minerals in your food instead of going to work on the bad stuff. I always take my DE and clay on an empty stomach. Right before bed is a good time as well. I've read before that the body does alot of its detoxing at night while your sleeping. I don't have anything readily available to back this up so hopefully I'm not putting my foot in my mouth.

I think you'll find, LastResort,
that not all metals are classified as Postive Charged metals and therefore attracted to the weak magnetic-negative charged cage structure of Clino...

I'll have to check on that myself.

At somepoint, when one is considering aids for the ailing physiology, one must trust in what I've heard others refer to as "body wisdom."

Since TPTB aren't interested in educating us,
and since the multi-level marketers aren't either when one gets right down to it,
......the lowly plebe level wherein we find the majority of what little awake and aware population segment which exists...
.....allllllll are dealing with this topic on a best understood basis.

Sad commentary on our nutritional awareness and how to separate the sheep from the goats in this genre'!

Wish Large Sarge would share some of his wisdom on this zeolite topic now that it has surfaced.
Anyone know how to pull his whiskers and perhaps elicit an enlightened response? He doesn't know me from Adam.

Couldn't get Rense streaming radio to even come up last night. Nor replay later on last night. Disappointing.

However, did find this via linkage on Rense' site just now...

Seems to be a pretty good comparison of various geiger counters out there confusing potential retail consumers.

Most especially this link is primarily focused on RADIATION CONTAMINATED FOOD and the end consumer.
--------------------------

http://www.geigercounters.com/FoodContaminant.htm

FOUND WITHIN LINK ABOVE:

Measuring radiation in food is tricky. Naturally occurring radiation in potassium-rich food (such as bananas, when dried into banana chips, and salt substitutes) from Potassium 40 can easily be detected with the Inspector and (with less sensitivity) the Radalert 50.

In the case of fallout from nuclear testing or accidents (such as Chernobyl), you would be looking mostly for Strontium 90,
Cesium 137, and possibly
Plutonium 239.

Of our instruments, the Inspector is the best for this application because of its higher sensitivity.

The Inspector’s efficiency for Sr90 and Cs137 beta is good, and it does detect the Cs137 gamma. It does detect Pu239, but Pu239 can have health effects at very low concentrations, which can be difficult to detect with any instrument.

Before you screen for radiation in food, you should:
1) establish a baseline measurement in the same location where you plan to test the food. It is best to accumulate the baseline counts for 12 hours as described below.

2) When you measure, you should put the mica window of the instrument directly over the food you are measuring, as close as possible.

3) In the case of milk or other liquids, fill a container very close to the top so you can measure directly, without the glass in the way. If all your milk is from the same source, you might want to boil or evaporate some to concentrate it, then take a measurement from that.

4) Set the display to Total and accumulate the counts for 12 hours in each location.

5) Divide the total count for the period by the exact number of minutes to get the average CPM.
------------

Please recall earlier in this thread, the release of Dr. Chris Busby's lead boat construction/instruction set to create a shielded environ in which to place said item you wish to test. IF SOMEONE WOULD ASSIST by re-surfacing and then posting hereon, the link to Busby's [lead] Boat construction instruction, who has mastered the messed up search engine keyword deals on this GSUS, please post same. I'd like to read it again myself.

I've also learned that use of a pyrex insert which can be removed and decontaminated before next suspected food item is checked is also advisable. Busby did NOT address this helpful and logical nuance. This came from another chemist sourcing.

He's the ONLY one I've found so far that has deigned to let the little people in on how to do this for themselves. Up to now, it seems to me to be eggheads only who possess the practical info.

Can I see a show of hands as to how many have constructed your "Busby Boat?"

all this is going to take more than one read for this plebe.

http://www.radiationnetwork.com/Nuclear.bmp Nuclear Site Alert Level = 100 CPM
How the Map Works:
A growing number of Radiation Monitoring Stations across the country (and world), using various models of Geiger Counters, upload their Radiation Count data in real time to their computer using a Data Cable, and then over the Internet to this web site, all of this accomplished through GeigerGraph for Networks software. This system is completely automated - there is no manual posting of data required.

How to Read the Map:

Referring to the Map Legend at the bottom left corner of the map, locate Monitoring Stations around the country that are contributing radiation data to this map as you read this, and watch the numbers on those monitoring stations update as frequently as every minute (your browser will automatically refresh). The numbers represent radiation Counts per Minute, abbreviated CPM, and under normal conditions, quantify the level of background radiation, i.e. environmental radiation from outer space as well as from the earth's crust and air. Depending on your location, your elevation or altitude, and your model of Geiger counter, this background radiation level might average anywhere from 5 to 60 CPM, and while background radiation levels are random, it would be unusual for those levels to exceed 100 CPM. Thus, the "Alert Level" for the National Radiation Map is 100 CPM, so if you see any Monitoring Stations with CPM value above 100, further indicated by an Alert symbol over those stations, it probably means that some radioactive source above and beyond background radiation is responsible.
Notice the Time and Date Stamp at the bottom center of the Map. That is Arizona Time, from where we service the Network, and your indication of how recently the Radiation Levels have been updated to the Map.

How to Participate in the Nationwide Radiation Network:

If you want to join this nationwide grass roots effort to monitor the radiation in our environment, then this is all you need (click on the Software link):

In fact, if you become an active participant in this network (instead of just a passive viewer of this website), the GeigerGraph software that you use will incorporate the same Radiation Map as above, but your map will be fully interactive, with zoom capabilities, descriptions of Nuclear Sites and Monitoring Stations, additional Map Layers, including Counties, Airports, Roads, Railroads, Lakes and Rivers, as well as downloadable City Streets for your county.

Found the Busby [Lead] Boat protocol addressed in Nov. on this forum. ;D

==================

Gunny,
no guesswork about this info from Busby.

What the good Busby man gave us is a scaled down, but still scientifically defensible LAB PROTOCOL for individual use, okay?

Don't pick it apart, don't guess about it, don't debate it, just do it is my strongly worded suggestion.

There's a time to be jaded and a time to "git 'er done already"....this is the latter, okay, buddy?

I'm making 3 boats. TODAY.

And I'm using easily available "plumber's lead" from the local hardware store. Looks like messy steel wool pads which have been pulled apart and some portion twisted off. Only this is lead, not SteelWool.

Safer than risking automobile/truck tires to the god knows what tire puncturing scrap is laying around at the local scrap yard.

Sold by the pound. Looks like steel wool only it isn't. Very maleable, formable, compressable. My hardware store has an open box of it on the shelf, and you reach in, pinch off some, weigh it, and you're on your way. If you want to decontam it, wash it in warm soapy water, rinse, add baking soda, swish around thoroughly and rinse again, set aside to drain and dry, before forming into lead boats.

After boat is formed, consider using something like cupcake paper liners from the grocery store to place inside boat, before adding item to be tested onto the dimpled lead surface.

More about testing and sampling in a later post, since a 2 inch cubed lead boat doesn't hold much "lettuce," beef, chicken, milk etc. Make a 2" thick boat and form it around a glass baby food jar. DON'T EAT THE CONTENTS of the babyfood first either.:o


wrt: your water commentary...

As far as the water is concerned, water can be ridded of radionuclides by known and available to individuals' methods, discussed earlier on this forum. Namely, filtration, Reverse Osmosis, then Distillation.

So, this can be a baseline of baselines.

Additionally, "historical background counts" info is available on the net per region, on folks' blogs such as the rad-net image John Q Public stickied on this Jap Forum. Use those background or USC-Berkely Nuke Department numbers when measuring CPM in "control sample" water.

Those posts can be found here earlier on this thread.

Yesterday’s M5.1 quake in Fukushima occurred at 8:45p, about 30 minutes after a M4.5 hit nearby. The charts at the bottom give a more precise idea of the timing of the radiation spikes measured throughout the Tokyo area.

Sure never heard anything about a new quake in Fukushima yesterday now did we? And the 4.3 one today, same place.

So much for transparency.

BTW...I just caught a fraction of an interview on CNN w/nuke engineer/operator, Arnie Gunderson

He said he checks "several times a day"...two particular websites for non-mainstream news from Japan.

The first one he checks he called http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/ and said it was originally written in Japanese, and then translated on the site.

The second one is the more familiar http://enenews.com from which the article at the top of this post comes from.

I am not sure what the issue is. When you get to the thread, reset the display settings for "since beginning", sort by: "last post time", "descending". Is this the issue?

This worked for me, thank you!

MN,
now moving to the bottom of the page, I click on the "long button" and yes a drop down menu appears...and the first word is settings on it.

Display is NOT anywhere to be found, even when clicking on the Settings on the drop down of the downlow long button.

I'm still wondering if I'm looking in the correct place. Any more clues?

Go to the thread/category, (but not into it)

On the bottom of the page is "Thread display options"

You want the choices to be:

Beginning
Last Post Time
Descending


For some reason saving the changes doesn't 'stick' for me. I have had to reset them daily. The default on this category pops up listing "Post Title" instead of "Post Time", and Ascending instead of Descending; hence this thread gets lost into page 5.

Fukushima Operator Admits 20% Increase In Radiation (http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2012/01/fukushima-operator-admits-20-increase-in-radiation/)


Tepco Admits that Radiation Levels from Fukushima Are RISING

JiJi Press – one of Japan’s largest news sources – reports (http://jen.jiji.com/jc/eng?g=eco&k=2012012300780):

Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Monday reported an increase in radioactive materials leaking from damaged nuclear reactors at the Fukushima … plant.
The total amount of radioactive cesium that leaked from the containment vessels of the No. 1 to No. 3 reactors reached 70 million becquerels per hour, up 12 million becquerels from the December level, the power firm said.
It seems that radioactive dusts were stirred up because plant workers went inside reactor buildings and removed rubble, TEPCO officials said.
While it is possible that the increased radiation is simply due to dust being stirred up, there is some evidence (http://enenews.com/just-in-after-m5-1-quake-radiation-dose-spikes-to-highest-level-since-april-at-detector-northeast-of-tokyo-double-average-chart) that the increase in radiation corresponds with recent earthquakes.
Or it could be due to the possible escape of nuclear fuel from the nuclear container vessels (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/01/tepco-drills-a-hole-in-fukushima-reactor-finds-that-nuclear-fuel-has-gone-missing.html).
Indeed, a Fukushima whistleblower allegedly claims that radioactive fuel is coming out from beneath the containment building (http://fukushima-diary.com/2012/01/breaking-news-whistle-blower-talks-container-vessel-is-melting-like-honeycomb/):

http://fukushima-diary.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/6218.jpg
***
These [highly-radioactive] yellow concrete slags come out from under the building one after one. It means that the container vessel is melting like honeycomb at least – doesn’t it? Otherwise why would metal uranium comes out of there ?

Well, NOW maybe I'm getting somewhere.

I went to Forums.

I went hunting for whatever forum might have "Japan" prominently displayed therein.

Remembering you said not to go into the forum, I scrolled down and looked around. NADA ZIP NYET

So, I disregarded your advice and clicked upon the "Japan trumpeted" forum.

I scrolled down THERE and looked around.

SPOTTED WHAT YOU TWO ARE TALKING ABOUT. THANK YOU.

Now, I'm confused again.

Ascending means the thread posting order is always going to start from March 12, 2011 to current time?

That sucks. I always thought Ascending meant one climbs from the newest to oldest. That's not correct thinking, either?

Anyhow, I'm making progress.

Here's the link I asked you for whereupon I found the dealie you and JohnQ are trying to help me with manipulating.

http://gold-silver.us/forum/forumdisplay.php?53-Japan-earthquake-tsunami-and-nuclear-disaster

Maybe this aggravation will assist some other poor soul hunting for one of the GSUS rav fav threads dealing with real life issues and desire to live larger and "glow lesser"...

OH!!!! and that reminds me....speaking of glowing? I MISS the glow typefont option we used to have on the prior forum. It made it easier to highlight important phrases, so that the scanning lurkers amongst us would stop and spend more than 3 sec. deciding whether a posting was useful or not.

Think I better quit whilst I'm ahead, MNEagle ???

A word of appreciation to all on this thread for their patience as we EACH find ourselves having to fix a fix of something that didn't need fixin' in the first place....

Fukushima Radiation Spreads Worldwide

Posted on January 18, 2012 (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/01/fukushima-radiation-spreads-worldwide.html)by WashingtonsBlog (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/author/washingtonsblog)
California, Finland, Canada, Australia Hit By Radiation

The University of California at Berkeley detected (http://enenews.com/over-epa-limit-cesium-levels-in-san-francisco-area-milk-now-higher-than-6-months-ago) cesium levels in San Francisco area milk above over EPA limits … and even higher than they were 6 months ago.

Finnish public television says that cesium from Fukushima (http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http://yle.fi/uutiset/kotimaa/2012/01/fukushiman_cesiumia_havaittu_suomen_metsissa_31814 04.html) has been detected in
lichens,
fungi and
elk and
reindeer meat
...............................in Finland.

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency confirmed (http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/story/2012/01/14/radiation-cloud-not-harmful-sunshine-coast/) a radiation cloud over the East Coast of Australia.

The West Coast of Canada is getting hit by debris from Japan … and at least some of it (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/12/japanese-debris-to-hit-america.html) is likely radioactive.

The authors of the controversial study claiming 14,000 deaths in the U.S. so far from Fukushima are now upping their figure to 20,000 (http://enenews.com/study-authors-now-20000-excess-u-s-deaths-after-fukushima-not-14000-follow-up-article-looking-at-age-groups-cities-in-works).

I spoke with nuclear health expert Chris Busby about their study, and he said that mortality figures fluctuate pretty substantially in the normal course, and so it is hard to know at this point one way or the other whether their figures are accurate.

And while there is no evidence linking them to Fukushima, Bed Bath and Beyond has recalled radioactive tissue holders (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2086870/Bed-Bath-Beyond-tissue-holders-recalled-contaminated-radioactive-cobalt.html#ixzz1jldY4b8E) [Jan 2012] after they set off police radiation monitors aboard a delivery truck.

This may just be an example of the incredibly lax handling (http://www.cracked.com/article_19607_the-6-most-reckless-uses-radioactive-material.html) of radioactive materials.

And thyroid cancers are – mysteriously – on the rise (http://yourlife.usatoday.com/health/story/2012-01-15/Doctors-unsure-why-thyroid-cancer-cases-on-the-rise/52582694/1) in the U.S.

But don’t worry: The owner of the Fukushima plant has the plant in cold shutdown (http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/12/announcement-of-cold-shutdown-of-fukushima-reactors-is-based-on-a-political-decision-rather-than-science.html), so everything is “under control” … Although temperatures have apparently jumped (http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2012/01/temperature-remains-high-at-reactor-2.html) inside Fukushima’s number 2 reactor, and the Japanese have no idea where the nuclear fuel has gone, so they are drilling a hole into the containment vessel (http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/20120117_24.html) to try to find it.

==================

Just a note re: additional observations of the 2 "yellowed" pieces photographed above...

The darker material adjacent to the yellowed material is what is called in mining talk...a "contact zone."

Obviously two dissimilar matrix are contacting something.

To see them laying on the ground like that and the drillers not using protective gear, makes me suspect the whole "horizontal down-dipping" drill scenario as even being 'on site' as purported by original poster.

I mean, think about this for a minute, GS'ers...do any of us believe, that in a site where at least 2 remote controlled cranes were rushed to and installed shortly after 3/11/11, that ungarbed, clad only in reflective safety vests drillers are drilling on site looking for those cores?

And before someone asks, yes, HORIZONTAL drilling can be occurring offsite, and from a considerable distance...as in xyz hundreds or thousands of feet even. But to post said contact zone photos obviously yellowed which makes all viewers immediately think of "yellowcake uranium"....
....and to post said photos without proper captioning, time stamps and other legitimizing frames of reference/markers is totally irresponsible on the part of the blogger.

I know tepco is stupid and obviously innured to their depopulating outcomes of their stupid decisions, but...web bloggers do NOT need to add to the confusion. :o

Okay...rant off.

A further footnote to the above posting brought to the foreground by MNEagle (thank you again!), the troubling cloud of Radiation hovering over Eastern Australia as reported by unhappy!!!! Australian officials, can be further put into context, but the 1.16.2012 Yoichi Shimatsu live interview on Rense a week ago this past Monday.

Good Old HAARP and the deliberate USGovt created e*zone off the coast of Australia--as exposed by Shimatsu last week...
....all this has set up is to cast considerable doubt on any "prophetic remedies of promised alternative food sourcings so generously provided by the "Friends of Lindsey" elitists---IT's a TOTALLY non-substantive fairy-tale, by a dubiously motivated "new Mr. X"...apparently with the morals of a sheet of wallpaper.

Lindsey said his elitest buddies prophesied "there'd be food on the shelves and plenty of it, but no one would be able to buy it!" That was always spun by Lindsey as being due to the devauled fiat currencies on the come in a hyperinflationary scene currently unfolding, with the requisite follow-on pitch to buy gold and silver now, he begs of us.

WHAT IF....
the elitist foretold "inability the buy" is instead the consumer unwillingness to die quicker of their purchases? ? ? ?
....because there is too little NON-CONTAMINATED foodstuffs for a hungry global populace to acquire....AT ANY PRICE!

REGARDLESS OF CURRENCY WARS under way , negatively impacting ability to purchase as Lindsey infers, it could quite possibly be push back due to the massive nuclear depopulation event currently on steroids???

Now where did we leave that clino- sourcings discussion brought to the forum by SERPO???

Okay, so fish is out,
strawberries are out...ditto lettuce, milk, and GMO corn/soy/sugarbeets and god knows whatelse...and I happen to be aware of a public but not widely talked about fight over wisteria tainted canteloupe from Eastern Colorado growers which have caused several deaths as the result...AYUP from eating good old fashioned cantelope!!!! --that is getting more and more tense by the minute...

Hmmmm...wonder how many ways earthworms can be barbequed/grilled/fried or baked????

Are we all going to have to resort to basement wormfarms and furtive mushroom growing?

This is NUTS, people!

The aftermath of the tsunami that ransacked the Japanese coast led to one of the worst nuclear meltdowns in the history of the world. Now, two researchers believe it may also have played some role in killing tens of thousands of Americans.

“[It’s] 155,000 deaths,” Joseph Mangano said, ”so we’re not talking about an increase from three to five deaths. We’re talking about quite a few.”

Mangano works at the Radiation and Public Health Project. The report he co-authored for a medical journal suggesting a link between Fukushima fallout and an increase in deaths in the United States has stirred up some controversy.

“The authors appeared to start at a conclusion,” Scientific American’s Michael Moyer wrote, “ – babies are dying because of Fukushima radiation – and work backwards, torturing their data to fit their claims.”

But Mangano said his critics miss the point.

“We have not stated conclusively that Fukushima fallout killed 22,000 Americans,” he said.

Instead, he and co-author Dr. Jannette Sherman cite numbers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's weekly morbidity report. That data showed a large spike in deaths – particularly infant deaths – in the 14 weeks following the Fukushima meltdown.

“And the highest ones,” Mangano said, “were in Boise, Idaho.”

According to that report, Boise saw its mortality rate for those younger than 45 jump 20 percent over that span.

We couldn’t reach the Ada County coroner for comment so we headed 20 miles down the road to meet his Canyon County colleague.

“We haven’t noticed anything different here,” Canyon County Coroner Vicki DeGeus-Morris said.

She said: If anything, rates in her county might’ve fallen: “I’m certainly not going to lose sleep over it.”

But Mangano believes she should. Actually, that we all should.

He called touting levels of radioactive chemicals as too low to inflict harm and even criticizing studies like his own “really irresponsible.”

Observation:

I'm still amazed at the "medical types" who've never lifted a finger to research the Petkau Effect research on low level radiation damage and the documented harm therefrom.

Yes, Petkau has been discussed on this forum before.

This thread is indebted to Large Sarge who, on March 22, 2011, brought forward this research, and attached biblio to his posting found here....post #978 on this forum:

Thanks again, Sarge!!! It was due to your posting I was able to inform and printout your posting, presenting same to my MD on my annual physical in May 2011. She did NOT laugh at me either. She'd never heard of this before you.

[B]Two Paragraphs from your post, Sarge.

The Petkau effect: discovered by Abram Petkau at the Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. Whiteshell Nuclear Research Establishment, Manitoba, Canada in 1972 (Ref.1). Dr. Petkau discovered that at 26 rads per minute (fast-dose rate) it required a total dose of 3,500 rads to destroy a cell membrane. However, at 0.001 rad per minute (slow dose rate), it required only 0.7 rad to destroy the cell membrane. The mechanism at the slow-dose rate is the production of free radicals of oxygen (O2 with a negative electrical charge) by the ionizing effect of the radiation.

The sparsely distributed free radicals generated at the slow-dose rate have a better probability of reaching and reacting with the cell wall than do the densely crowded free radicals produced by fast-dose rates. These latter recombine quickly. Moreover, the slight electrical charge of the cell membrane attracts the free radicals in the early stages of the reaction (low total dose). Computer calculations have shown that the attraction weakens with greater concentrations of free radicals.

The traditional radiation biologist has tested only high-dose reactions, and looked for direct damage to the membrane by the radiation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzMnHfhw88k&feature=uploademail

On the 18th of January, Ministry of Trade, Economy and Industry had its Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency hold a public hearing where experts review the results of the stress tests regarding the Oi nuclear power plants operated by Kansai Electric Power Co. in Fukui prefecture(located in the central region of Japan's main island).

Unlike the previous one, the Agency had the hearing closed to the publc. A group of Japanese citizens demanded that the Agency allow them to observe the hearing. Also, they demanded that the Agency get rid of three members of the hearing saying they received donations from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries that built the plants.

The ageny turned down their demand and resumed the hearing in the other room while two members (Mr.Goto and Mr.Ino) refused to attend the hearing saying the hearing should be open to the public. At the end, only four of the original members remained in the hearing, and they came to conclusion that the results are reasonable. Strangely, almost all the major news media in Japan only reported that anti-nuclear protesters disrupted the hearing.

A Fukushima farmer gave a speech. He had his whole life destroyed. Yet he can’t abandon their cattle.

This is from Friday, 1/27/12. I feel the pain of his speech in my heart.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flKgTP5afo8
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flKgTP5afo8

<Translation>

I’m the owner of the farm in Namie machi, where still 300 cattle are.
I live in 14 km area from Fukushima plants. I heard the explosion twice.
I saw the splashing ash and smoke with my own eyes.
I couldn’t abandon my cattle in the first week,.
On 3/17, I thought my cattle can no longer live long, made up mind going to Tokyo.
I came to Tepco’s head office with campaigner’s car on 3/18. I was the first one to do it in Fukushima.

Everyone, my cattle have no value as product. It’s zero. It’s completely meaningless to exist now.
They have been exposed to radiation, can’t sell them out anymore.
I told Tepco, I will definitely claim for damage.
and, pushing all the risk to self defense force and the Fire and Disaster Management Agency to settle it down, how dare you escape.
I claimed them as crying.

Stop Fukushima plants to die if necessary.
We need someone to die, someone must die to settle it down.

When I left my farm, I left a message,
Save our lives. This is our deadly struggle.
Unite.

Earthquake, Tsunami, and the nuclear plants to attack us.
Get fully prepared to die if necessary and try to settle it down.
We must fight, how dare you escape.
I still think so.

Now my cattle are deeply contaminated by cesium,
and my body is contaminated as much as them.
In 6 microSv/h, I feed them everyday.

They had a lot of babies.
Because of the lack of crops, and the cold weather,
they are dying one after one.

Spring will come, Summer will come, grass of ranch will grow again, I believe.
I want people to make the best of them for study of radiation exposure, decontamination,
and to have the huge dead rice field come back alive by using my cattle somehow in Futabagun.
I’m now trying to make the government, and The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries develop the project.
I believe my cattle of hope will be useful for the recovery of Fukushima.
No more nuclear power to Fukushima.

However, I know it’s too late.
It’s already bad as Chernobyl.
Our town has gotten Chernobyl in it.
Who’s to blame ?
Who destroyed our life, and our future ?

Burning the rest of my life, I will definitely claim for damage from Tepco and Japanese government.
We won’t let them operate the nuclear plants, won’t let them re-start the nuclear plants.
We can live without nuclear plants. Everyone unite and take action.

I thought the same thing, inspected the code and re-read carefully. Here's what it says directly above the 3 pics...

Boring survey around reactor 2 is coming to the climax. As a result, the announcement of the government and Tepco has to be denied. If it’s soft material, they can do horizontal boring with such a weak equipment (like the top picture ) but when it comes to the concrete of the reactor building it’s impossible. They need to do boring with a foreign heavy equipment at an angle. They do boring to reach to under the container vessel. (like the bottom 2 pictures)

"(like the top picture ) and (like the bottom 2 pictures)" Not Fukushima, no?

The Pacific weather event known as "La Nina" is forcing radioactive fallout from Fukushima rapidly across the equator and into the Southern Hemisphere via the Jet Stream. South America is the primary fallout for the southern Jet stream winds, and Hawaii is in the direct path of the now more southerly jet stream split. Meanwhile surface level winds are blowing out of Fukushima and directly south towards Australia.

Fukushima reactor designer turned whistleblower says he knew reactor No 4 has been unsound for 40 years....

“A former Fukushima Daiichi reactor designer turned whistle blower today said the crippled plant’s reactor No 4 had been relying on flawed steel to hold radiation in its core, and that he himself helped hide the defect when the reactor – which he called a “time bomb” – was built four decades ago….
“Tanaka’s condemnation reaches further than No 4
“Earlier this week, Tanaka told the media more generally that all of the reactors at Fukushima Daiichi were outmoded and that specifically, reactor No 1 – which has suffered overheating difficulties, a partial meltdown and a hydrogen explosion – should have been shut down or replaced….
“Tanaka says the reactor pressure vessel inside the No. 4 reactor was damaged at a Babcock-Hitachi foundry in Kure, Hiroshima Prefecture, during the last step of a manufacturing process that took two and a half years and cost millions of dollars, Japan Today reported. If the mistake had been discovered, the company might have been bankrupted, Tananka said.
“The origin of the flaw
“Inside a blast furnace the size of a small airplane hanger, the reactor pressure vessel was being treated one last time to remove welding stress, according to Tanaka’s recounting. The cylinder, 20 meters tall and 5.8 meters in diameter, was heated to more than 600 degrees, a temperature that softens metal.

“Braces that were to have been placed inside during the blasting were either forgotten or fell over when the cylinder was wheeled into the furnace. After the vessel cooled, its walls were warped, Tanaka said….”

Yoi chi Shimatsu stated categorically that out of the 54 nuke reactors on the Isle of Japan, only 5 are still operational. And those 5 are expected to go into shutdown here shortly for their scheduled "winter maintenance" which all reactors go through.

Y.S. added this juicy tidbit: only 2 years of fuel pool storage capacity left in the entire 54 reactor collective over there, and Japan is basically quite concerned b/c no one wants their "used rods" now, what are they going to do when the used rods' storage capacity is full?

Serendipity I guess, allowed me to listen to Yoi chi Shimatsu on Rense replay last night.

When Rense asked YS what nuclear events he was looking into the future and anticipating next, YS stated without a moment's hesitation, "More Explosions" and mentioned a nearby 4 cluster nuke plant also in (stuxnet) shutdown, without sufficient cooling water. He said no one was looking at them.

I keep remembering only 5 of 54 Jap "operating March 10, 2011" are still up and running. The rest of them are quietly seething and poisoning the planet in one gigantic festering boil-over.

God continue to help us all...

One of his other explanations that I found chilling was the "black debris" accumulating from the fallout after the recent earthquake dispersive event from the Reactor 4 of 2 weeks ago.

He opened with a comment on the 10,000 strong Japanese anti-nuke protest March this past Saturday that has received NO international coverage that I can find.

^ looks to have been written by Rense himself, using the "anonymous" handle, which has really devolved into meaninglessness as long as everyone is able to use it. It's just too lopsided in favor of Rense & against Makow, and the reader comments are censored to be one-sided as well - when, if I understand Makow's story, Rense cut Makow off for publishing the Stone story. Neither essay specifies whether there was dialog before Makow's publishing the story, saying whether Rense warned him in advance against doing that- only that Rense went ballistic and cut off all future Rense links to Makow's site pointing to 3rd party writers which Makow published, and would only publish Makow's own articles reprinted on a Rense page- which Makow claims he won't be sending Rense.

http://www.henrymakow.com/theargumentfukushimasabotage.html

the best summary i've seen yet, making the case for Fukushima Quake/Tsunami = Israeli Sabotage.

cites Jim Stone, written by James Farganne. discusses concepts we already hashed over, but - it's good.

took me from, "maybe Israel did it", to "Gosh, i think Israel did it" - based on the apparent lack of damage from the supposedly HUGE quake - striking on the one year anniversary of Japan's extension of an olive branch to Palestine at the UN.

(Did someone already post this ?)


"When we compare the 6.8-magnitude earthquake which devastated Kobe, Japan January 17, 1995 with Fukushima, the evidence does not stack up.

A quick Google Images search of Kobe reveals incredible destruction of buildings, bridges, elevated highways, and other infrastructure.

The Fukushima quake, magnitude 9.0, struck about 70 km off the coast of Japan on March 11, 2011.

It sent a 15-meter tsunami crashing over perfectly undamaged bridges, houses, roads, and cars -- over a populace which had not been warned of the incoming tsunami, because there was no mag 9.0 earthquake. They were taken completely off-guard. Yet helicopters were waiting, and people all over Japan got to watch the tsunami roll in on live TV.

What on earth was going on? Ordinarily, the Japanese people are warned of tsunamis. Why weren't they warned? Why was there no structural damage, no reason for them to suspect that a tsunami was coming?

The quake must have seemed like nothing special to a nation of people who are used to quakes. In a video taken in one Tokyo newsroom during the Fukushima quake, staff were seen to continue typing at their computer stations, totally unfazed by it.

A 9.0-magnitude earthquake is more than 100 times stronger than a 6.8. A 9.0 should have devastated everything within a 1,000-km radius. There should have been widespread urban carnage, even worse than what Kobe suffered.

Yet the Fukushima quake of 3/11/11 did not cause a single structure to collapse.

But don't take my word for it. Go look up the helicopter footage on YouTube. Look at the infrastructure the tsunami was crashing onto. Not the slightest bit of damage. Common sense is enough to make you wonder.

Jim Stone did more than wonder. He dug up and analyzed the Japanese seismograms. He proved there was no 9.0 quake, and no epicenter out at sea. Instead, there were three simultaneous quakes of much lesser magnitude, all of them inland.

The authorities lied about the 9.0 quake -- made it up out of whole cloth. An earthquake did not cause the tsunami. There must have been another cause.

blast door.jpgReactors Destroyed by Nukes

It turns out that the official explanation for the Fukushima reactor explosions was bogus as well. Nuclear power containment walls are extremely thick and strong. Hydrogen explosions could never have destroyed them. As a historical reference, hydrogen explosions occurred at Three Mile Island and caused no structural damage, nor even any injuries to plant personnel.

Furthermore, Reactor Four contained no fuel on 3/11/11, and was therefore nonoperational -- yet it exploded and was destroyed as completely as were the other reactors that day. Reactor Four is like Building 7 at the World Trade Center - an utter impossibility, a blatant smoking gun. A reactor containing no fuel cannot operate; a nonoperational reactor cannot explode unless someone explodes it. The destruction of Reactor Four can only have been the result of sabotage.

Israeli Involvement

In February 2010, Japan offered to enrich uranium for Iran. Soon thereafter, an Israeli firm by the name of Magna BSP secured a contract to run security at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. They installed oversized cameras strongly resembling gun-type nuclear weapons. There is strong evidence that they planted Stuxnet, an Israeli computer virus that attacks Siemens power plant control systems, and which Israel previously used to damage Iran's nuclear program. Magna BSP also established internet data links in the reactor cores, in blatant violation of international nuclear regulations.

All twelve members of that security team returned to Israel in the week before 3/11/11. In the aftermath of the disaster, the Israelis publicly monitored the reactor cores via their illegal internet data links. Yet no one took them to task for this.

Jim Stone Targeted for Revealing Truth

What caused the tsunami? What destroyed the reactors?

Using skills honed as a former NSA analyst with an engineering background, Jim Stone concluded that Israel was behind the destruction of Fukushima Daiichi. Now he is paying the price.

Stone proved that there was no 9.0-magnitude quake to cause the tsunami. The tsunami must have been artificially induced, perhaps by an atomic bomb placed in the Japan Trench.

The tsunami was blamed for flooding the reactors and causing the explosions. But Stone presents compelling evidence that Israel destroyed the Fukushima Daiichi plant by installing gun-type nuclear weapons in the guise of security cameras, and then setting them off in the tsunami's aftermath.

Stone demonstrates that the Stuxnet virus continues to distort sensor readings at the disaster site to this day.

Unlike many others in the world of whistle blowers, Stone bases his conclusions on hard evidence and unassailable logic. Anyone can review and challenge his work. He is open to it.

Since releasing his report and making several radio appearances to support it, Jim Stone has been harassed, threatened, unlawfully detained, and is currently facing prison time on completely trumped-up charges.

I have watched the reaction to his work on the net. Some have slandered him. Others have railroaded his work.

No one has debunked him yet.

His conclusions have ramifications that make 9/11 pale in significance.

Why, all across the alternative media, this roaring silence on the work of Jim Stone?

Why haven't more truth sites simply linked to his report, directing people to review the evidence and decide for themselves?

Some have expressed suspicion that Stone might not be what he claims to be. That's irrelevant. Facts are facts. The report stands on facts.

If you haven't done so yet, I urge you to study Jim Stone's Fukushima report. It is well worth the considerable time and effort. Then, if you agree that his conclusions are correct, please do your part in spreading this information and dispelling the alternative media's silence on it.

To conclude, a 9.0-magnitude earthquake never happened in Japan on 3/11; the tsunami must have been artificially induced. Nor did hydrogen explosions obliterate containment walls of concrete and rebar several feet thick. The official story is impossible. Israel was punishing Japan, and Zionist operatives now are attempting to destroy Jim Stone, the man who exposed the truth."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2hUwFo6Vpc&feature=related

High-def video, e.g. @ 1:42, there is about a 6 story concrete building, untouched by a supposed 9.0 quake, as are the highways & other buildings standing there while they are engulfed by the tsunami.

that would be plausible if it was a 7.0 quake (based on my experience living through the 1989 'World Series' quake.)

were Japan building standards modified that thoroughly, and all buildings subsequently upgraded, after the 1995 Kobe quake ?


as far as "Jeff Rense refused to link to this article. He thinks it is a psy-op to absolve the nuclear industry of blame for Fukushima" - how does 3-11 absolve the nuclear industry ? 3-11 helped to bring the long-forgotten Fukushima nuclear facility whistle-blowers' statements back into the public view - independent of probable Israeli skullduggery.

< it's like a radioactive version of the Pacific Patch, the big mass of plastic debris that already existed in the Pacific Ocean. wood from destroyed buildings, tschochke's from Japanese homes destroyed in the tsunami, intermittently bathed in the radiation associated with the Fukushima Event. GunD. >

Somewhere in the Pacific Ocean a confetti-like mass of trash and debris slowly lurches eastward. Nestled in its grip are the relics of lives quite literally washed away. Fishing boats, shoes, chunks of homes, they’re all there. Spawned from the 2011 tsunami that ravaged Japan, this floating field of trash could hold as many as 20 million tons of debris. And according to experts, in less than 12 months, this aquatic wasteland will begin littering the shores of the Hawaiian Islands.

After consuming more than 217 miles of Japanese coastline, the March 2011 tsunami seized nearly everything that wasn’t bolted down; what didn’t float quickly sank, and what did was dragged out to sea, where it was pulled east by the prevailing currents.

In September, a Russian sailing boat, Pallada, en route from Honolulu to Vladivostok, Russia, reported spotting a substantial amount of debris bearing Japanese markings near Midway Atoll. In addition to a small fishing boat from the Fukushima prefecture, the crew found a TV set, miscellaneous home appliances, a refrigerator, various pieces of wood, and plastic jugs, as well as a slew of other items.

Professor Nikolai Maximenko of the International Pacific Research Center has been a pivotal figure in tracking the movement of the debris. Not only has he been able to follow the floating mass of garbage, but he’s also developed a model that will project its estimated course. The model, which is based off a 30-year study of the prevailing currents in the area, suggests that the Hawaiian Islands could see an impact as early as the winter of 2013.

According to projections formulated by Professor Maximenko and Jan Hafner, a computer programmer, due to the nature of the currents, the field of debris will make its way toward the Pacific Northwest after littering Hawaii. “The first landfall on Midway Islands is anticipated this winter,” said a statement from the International Pacific Research Center. “What misses Midway will continue toward the main Hawaiian Islands and the North American West Coast.”

After making landfall on the West Coast, the debris will slowly drift back toward the Hawaiian Islands.

In preparation, local NGOs like the Hawaii chapter of the Surfrider Foundation are already working on a strategy to handle the onslaught. “We’ve been working closely with NOAA to monitor the situation and to formulate a plan to deal with the debris when it does make landfall on the islands,” says Tim Tybuszewski, the organization’s Hawaii co-chairman. “When it arrives, we’ll be organizing cleaning efforts to help minimize its effect on our beaches here in Hawaii.” "


i guess part of the tool-set that we need to adopt, just like learning to use the phone 50 years ago, is a Geiger Counter. i managed to insulate my household somewhat with a pre-Fukushima supply of food, cream for coffee, etc. so i didn't buy one yet.

QUESTION - for those of you that have learned to do accurate radiation readings comparable to a professional radiation scientist, like the people that read the radiation dosimeters when you tour a linear accelerator center ... how many Geiger Counters did you go through before you learned ? how much did you spend ?

i know it can be as simple as buying a $30 device - but i don't expect it to be that easy.

guess i'll just have to take the plunge and put it in my beach bag. i used to look for shells at the beach. now ... we can test for radioactive debris. what a world.

Pretreatment with intravenous vitamin C and other oral antioxidants has been demonstrated once again to provide significant protection against radiation poisoning and cancer. Dr. Atsuo Yanagisawa, M.D., Ph.D., from the Japanese College of IV Therapy recently conducted a study which found that Fukushima workers who underwent a high-dose vitamin C pretreatment prior to handling radioactive debris during cleanup efforts were protected against DNA damage and cancer.

The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service (OMNS) reports that Dr. Yanagisawa evaluated 16 men between the ages of 32 and 59 that worked between five and six weeks in a high-radiation area of Fukushima. Some of the men received 25,000 milligrams (mg) of intravenous vitamin C therapy along with oral intake of other powerful antioxidants like alpha-lipoic acid and vitamin E prior to entering the contaminated area, while the others received no pretreatment at all.

After taking blood samples from all the men and evaluating them for whole blood count and chemistry, as well as for plasma levels of free DNA and 47 cancer-related gene expressions, Dr. Yanagisawa and his team found that those who received the vitamin C therapy experienced no increase in cancer risk or change in free DNA. Those who did not receive the treatment, on the other hand, had significantly increased cancer risk.

Those who did not receive pretreatment, but that received a post-treatment intervention with the same regimen for two months, however, saw their heightened free DNA levels return to normal. Their overall cancer risk score also returned back to normal, illustrating the incredible power of vitamin C and other antioxidants to protect against, and even reverse, the damage caused by radiation.

"This important clinical demonstration confirms research done nearly 20 years ago showing that pretreatment with vitamin C, by oral intake or injection, increased sperm head survival after the injection of radioactive Iodine-131 in mice," says the OMNS report.

Vitamin C is one of the most powerful nutrients in protecting against cell-damaging free radicals. And while ascorbic acid, the popular isolated version of vitamin C, has its demonstrable therapeutic uses, the camu camu berry is one of the most powerful vitamin C-rich superfoods for gaining the same health benefits naturally. The acerola cherry is also another vitamin C-dense superfood with amazing radio-protective abilities.http://www.naturalnews.com/034993_vitamin_C_radiation_poisoning_cancer.html

I didn't write anything that was earth-shattering to you guys. Here it is, and you can let me know if it's any good. And I should clarify; it's short compared to what I had written originally in draft form:

There certainly have been detectable levels of radioactive Cesium, Iodine, and Tellurium found in Bay Area organic milk as tested by the UC Berkeley Department of Nuclear Engineering (and thank goodness they ARE doing this testing, since the "authorities" sure aren't, or at least if they are they aren't telling us. The EPA stopped publishing data on milk back in May 2011 (http://www.epa.gov/japan011/data-updates.html)).

The levels have fluctuated since the Fukushima disaster, but note that when they started on 3/25/11, all of them were at MDA or Minimum Detectable Activity, which their site says is "the lowest level of measurement where we can confidently report results." Ideally the levels should be at MDA every single time the milk is tested.

Instead they have fluctuated and sometimes return to MDA, but for the most part there have been measurable amounts of radioactive materials in milk. The latest data collected on the 16th shows detectable amounts of radioactive Cesium-134 and 137:

http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/UCBAirSampling/MilkSampling

Also see this (http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/5552) entry from last September (bolding mine):

9/6 (5:26pm): We tested a topsoil sample and a dried manure sample from the Sacramento area (http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/2525#soilSacramento). The manure was produced by a cow long before Fukushima and left outside to dry; it was rained on back in March and April. Both samples showed detectable levels of Cs-134 and Cs-137, with the manure showing higher levels than the soil probably because of its different chemical properties and/or lower density.

In addition, a soil sample from Sonoma county (http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/2525#soilSonoma) was tested. This sample had been collected in late April but we had not had the chance to test it until now.

One interesting feature of the Sacramento (http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/2525#soilSacramento) and Sonoma (http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/node/2525#soilSonoma) soil samples is that the ratio of Cesium-137 to Cesium-134 is very large — approximately 17.6 and 5.5, respectively. All of our other soil samples until now had shown ratios of between 1 and 2. We know from our air and rainwater measurements that material from Fukushima has a cesium ratio in the range of approximately 1.0 to 1.5, meaning that there is extra Cs-137 in these two soil samples. The best explanation is that in addition to Fukushima fallout, we have also detected atmospheric nuclear weapons testing fallout in these soils. Weapons fallout contains only Cs-137 (no Cs-134) and is known to be present in older soils (pre-1963 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partial_Nuclear_Test_Ban_Treaty)). Both of these samples come from older soils, while our samples until this point had come from newer soils.

This direct comparison between Fukushima fallout and atmospheric weapons fallout in these soils shows that the fallout from Fukushima in Northern California is significantly less than the amount of Cs-137 that still remains from weapons testing, which has had nearly 50 years (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partial_Nuclear_Test_Ban_Treaty) to disperse and decay. Note that Cesium-137 has a half-life of 30 years, and for Cesium-134 it's two years; they are NOT something you want hanging around in your body in ANY amounts, and I'm awfully tired of hearing nuclear industry shills play down the risks of INGESTING radioactive particles that are contaminating our food with comparisons to going out in the sun or getting x-rays.

I'm not saying go panic and stop consuming dairy, but we need to have good information on hand to assess the risks in order to know what to do to combat them (like taking seaweed, miso, minerals, etc.).

By the way there are few mainstream news sources that consistently report the ongoing problems with Fukushima. I follow Enenews.com which provides information, sometimes translated from Japanese sources that you certainly won't hear on Fox News.

But those results for the substance cesium-137 are far below the levels that are generally considered harmful, either to marine animals or people who eat seafood, said Ken Buesseler of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts.and



The results are for water samples taken in June, about three months after the power plant disaster, Buesseler said. In addition to thousands of water samples, researchers also sampled fish and plankton and found cesium-137 levels well below the legal health limit.All is well, basically, cuz the experts say so.

article from JapanToday, link from Collapsenet.com -

the headline is both informative & misleading. we know the radiation has been detected here in the mainland US, 5000+ miles away.

to qualify, this is a radiation reading performed on sea-water, reported on by a scientist from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. I believe scientists from Woods Hole also took the reading.

http://www.japantoday.com/category/national/view/radiation-from-disaster-detected-643-kms-off-japans-coast

"Radiation from disaster detected 643 kms off Japan's coast"

"Feb. 22, 2012 - 10:50AM JST ( 31 )

SALT LAKE CITY —

Radioactive contamination from the Fukushima power plant disaster has been detected as far as almost 643 kilometers off Japan in the Pacific Ocean, with water showing readings of up to 1,000 times more than prior levels, scientists reported Tuesday.

But those results for the substance cesium-137 are far below the levels that are generally considered harmful, either to marine animals or people who eat seafood, said Ken Buesseler of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

He spoke Tuesday in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the annual Ocean Sciences Meeting, attended by more than 4,000 researchers this week.

The results are for water samples taken in June, about three months after the power plant disaster, Buesseler said. In addition to thousands of water samples, researchers also sampled fish and plankton and found cesium-137 levels well below the legal health limit.

“We’re not over the hump” yet in terms of radioactive contamination of the ocean because of continued leakage from the plant, Buesseler said in an interview before Tuesday’s talk. He was chief scientist for the cruise that collected the data.

The ship sampled water from about 32 kilometers to about 640 kms off the coast east of the Fukushima plant. Concentrations of cesium-137 throughout that range were 10 to 1,000 times normal, but they were about one-tenth the levels generally considered harmful, Buesseler said.

Cesium-137 wasn’t the only radioactive substance released from the plant, but it’s of particular concern because of its long persistence in the environment. Its half-life is 30 years.

The highest readings last June were not always from locations closest to the Fukushima plant, Buesseler said. That’s because swirling ocean currents formed concentrations of the material, he said.

Most of the cesium-137 detected during the voyage probably entered the ocean from water discharges, rather than atmospheric fallout, he added.

Hartmut Nies of the International Atomic Energy Agency said Buesseler’s findings were not surprising, given the vastness of the ocean and its ability to absorb and dilute materials.

“This is what we predicted,” Nies said after Buesseler presented his research.

Nies said the water’s cesium-137 concentration has been so diluted that just 32 kms offshore, “if it was not seawater, you could drink it without any problems.”

“This is good news,” he said, adding that scientists expect levels to continue to decrease over time.

“We still don’t have a full picture,” Nies said, “but we can expect the situation will not become worse.” "


I don't like that last line. tempting fate.

It would be nice to see some financial justice for the most severely affected from the Manhattan project days to present.

Remember the graphic earlier on this forum showing the well-documented, cesium poisoning of the earth from Nevada on the West to the border of N/S Dakota on the North, east roughly to St. Louis, and South to Amarillo/Austin?

Yeah, above ground nuke testing and its radioactive dispersal is at the bottom of this. Cesium daughter, Strontium is at the base of over 95% of the diabetes in this nation.

I've been re-reading the e-mails sent to my health group by that possible nuclear industry shill, and it really bothers me how he's been allowed to shape and direct the discussion away from radiation causing cancer.

Someone asked why he was even on the group, since he's only posted rebuttals to the radiation posts, and he claims that a family member has a cancer that, get this, has absolutely no environmental, lifestyle nor genetic precursors and that just happens to strike a few million people every year out of the bright blue sky.

He goes on to say that the increase in cancer may be linked to a lot of causes that are impossible to associate with specific factors (excuse me, but what bullsh*t).

He then lists how it's the diagnosis that's changed, and how longer lifespans makes it so that our bodies' cells have more of a chance to get sick.

Now if you take each of the statements by themselves, they sound pretty reasonable, but taken together, it sounds just like the Big Pharma shills who claim that the incidence of autism isn't rising, and we who are middle-aged are not supposed to believe our eyes or our memory of what constitutes a normal child. (I don't know about you, but I didn't see one autistic child until the 90s, and that's after having been working in the education system since the mid-80s. Nowadays there are people who specialize in treating them because there are so many.)

In another paragraph, he responds to the posting of another member who complained that her doctor wasn't interested in how she got sick. You know what his brilliant answer was? "If you get [whatever illness], does it matter how you got it?"

Well yeah, if it was caused by Big Pharma drugs or corporations putting crap in food or dumping chemicals in streams or nuclear plant accidents. It sure the eff matters a lot!

TOKYO —

The operator of Japan’s tsunami-crippled nuclear plant is to cover a large swathe of seabed near the battered reactors with cement in a bid to halt the spread of radiation, the company said Wednesday.

A clay-cement compound will be laid over 73,000 square meters of the floor of the Pacific in front of the Fukushima Daiichi plant on the nation’s northeast coast, said Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO).

The area is equivalent to around 10 soccer pitches.

Mr. Kabayama, a Tokyo city councilor of Liberal Democratic Party died after measuring radiation in Mizumoto Park.
He was measuring radiation in various areas in Tokyo and posted it on his blog.
On 6/30/2011, he measured 0.25 microSv/h in Mizumoto Park.

The next day, 7/1/2011 3AM, he was found dead with his head covered by a plastic bag.
Police thought it to be suicide for some reason. However, none of the posts on the blog suggested potential suicide, he sounded motivated to measure around in Tokyo.
He was found dead by his family.

Tokyo station is contaminated as mandatory evacuating zone in Fukushima

On Rense last night, Michael Collins stated that readings in Tokyo proper are basically 25x the mandatory evacuation ZONE radiation levels of Chernobyl over 20 years ago. Everywhere there. They have no place to go.


25x!!!!

I have a new vehicle coming in 2 weeks. We are told that these vehicles are built in Thailand. Everyone knows this about this type of vehicle. Regardless of brand most are built in thailand. Anyway it turns out they are ASSEMBLED in Thailand but each and every part is manufactured in Japan. About half the vehicle is manufactured some 100kms south west of Fukishima. The other half about 50 kms south of Tokyo.

So what are the odds this thing is going to be hot. So I think I need to find a gieger counter. i used to work in assay so I'm going to ask a few contacts or I'll have to make one myself. I also know someone in Govt anti polution contamination control department. They will definately have one.

I'm concerned this vehicle has been Fukishima'd

As to the problems there. I recently met a guy who lived in Tokyo. He married a local girl and they have a baby and possibly another on the way. Anyway, Fukishima happened and he packed up and left. He and his family were out of there in a day or two after the tsunami. Smart guy.

Glass,
a couple suggestions if I may be permitted to think outloud with you briefly?

1) Establish some baselines by prior testing of USED already on US SOIL vehicles, preferably a couple 3 years old and still owned by existing US residents. Otherwise you're going to be comparing readings of your newly delivered vehicle with what exactly?

2) Have you examined your contract to see if you have an out if it is Fukushima'd?

3) Not so sure you will be met with open arms when seeking geiger counter equipment loans and assistance with borrowing/using the new fangled units from prior contacts.

There is a pervasive "I don't want to know" attitude out there even in scientific circles, coupled with a don't tell me if you know differently brush-off at the ready.

Pretty soon, just owning one or knowing how to use one will land you on a terrorist list. God forbid you show up at the car dealership with one in hand, in order to be satisfied before you take delivery AFTER examination by you before signing off and accepting the keys. Might have to invoke the local gendarme just for the privilege of not being nuked with your new unit.

I hope you keep us posted. God forbid you have trouble, but if you do, PLEASE DO add your anecdotal experience to the emperical sharing here on GS-US would be a real service to the rest of us out here in doodah land.

It's already a documented fact that a lot of Fukushima'd vehicles have been "re-directed here" of the used, flooded variety. God forbid the "glowing parts" make it into the USA secondary market. I can just see it now...NAPA, Schucks, AutoNation not being able to keep parts on hand without teaching every customer who comes through how to use an Inspector Alert unit first. This nation's retailers, especially in the car genre and all supporting aftermarket outlets are NOT ready to deal with the reality of "glowing incoming automotive parts."

Yikes!

Thanks beef. I'm down here in Oz but your advice still applies.

I posted a link to a thread earlier about knocking up a rudimentary geiger. There were a couple of designs. A couple looked fairly doable even for me.

I've put a few feelers out and I'm confident I can find someone who has one. I doubt I am going to be able to check this vehicle out before delivery but I can check it out after fairly easily. I've just realised that a relative is also getting a new jap car around the same time.

I'll see how things pan out and report back.

BLOCKBUSTER!!! Documents Reveal U.S. Fukushima Cover-Up, Deception (http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2012/02/27/blockbuster-documents-reveal-fukushima-coverup-deception-86561/)



BLOCKBUSTER!!! FOIA Documents Reveal NRC Cover-Up, Deception

The Intel Hub (http://www.theintelhub.com/)
By Tony Muga
February 27, 2012


The FOIA request was initiated by the Friends of the Earth (FOE), the Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), and the Nuclear Information and Resource Center (NIRS) in March of 2011. Physicians for Social Responsibility explains the purpose of the request on YubaNet.com (http://yubanet.com/usa/Fukushima-Related-FOIA-Request-Full-Data-Sought-on-Radiation-Levels-That-Led-To-NRC-Chair-s-Call-for-50-Mile-Evacuation-Radius.php):



“On March 16, 2011, NRC Commissioner Gregory B Jaczko told Congress that he was recommending the 50-mile evacuation radius. The scope of the recommended evacuation is highly unusual and suggestive of extraordinarily high radiation levels in excess of those reported to the public in Japan and the U.S., …In the U.S., nuclear reactor licensees and local governments are only asked to provide for evacuation out to 10 miles. As concerns grow about food and water contamination in Japan, the three groups…are seeking to determine the answer to this key question: What made Jaczko exceed the limits of his own agency’s regulations by five times?”



Interestingly enough, and surely by coincidence, the Qur’an burnings in Afghanistan (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57381495/quran-burning-angers-afghans-u.s-vows-probe/) have taken place just as the analysis of these documents, and the documents themselves are being made public.



It should be no surprise that the corporate controlled mainstream media is ignoring this blockbuster revelation instead of exposing it and demanding an investigation.



In a January 18 (http://enformable.com/2012/01/fukushima-foia-part-i-who-knew-what-when/)th (http://enformable.com/2012/01/fukushima-foia-part-i-who-knew-what-when/) and February 19 (http://enformable.com/2012/02/nrc-failed-to-fully-disclose-their-knowledge-of-events-relating-to-fukushima-daiichi/)th (http://enformable.com/2012/02/nrc-failed-to-fully-disclose-their-knowledge-of-events-relating-to-fukushima-daiichi/) article (http://enformable.com/2012/02/nrc-failed-to-fully-disclose-their-knowledge-of-events-relating-to-fukushima-daiichi/)analysis of NRC emails and transcripts of phone conversations, dated just days after the accident, reveals the nature of the cover-up:





Containment: “By Sunday March 13th, Elliot Brenner, sent out an e-mail to upper NRC counterparts clearly narrating the sequence of events. ‘While we know more than what these (press releases) say, we’re sticking to this story for now.’ writes Breener, during the weekend he labled [labeled] ‘very hectic’.”

In regards to not fully utilizing twitter: “The NRC was using their blog and the updates provided by the American Nuclear Society as the main modes of communication with the public. Interestingly enough, the NRC did also use Twitter to gather information on the event, but declined from using the world-wide popular social networking site to share information with the public.”

Selective distribution of information: “David McIntyre also works in the NRC on public affairs, and spent much of his time creating carefully crafted e-mails that constantly downplayed the disaster, and any relationship that might be made to the safety status of US nuclear stations. On March 14th, McIntyre received an email [from] Molly McCrea, a reporter for CBS inquired about the status of a law that Senator Markey had authored that would distribute KI (potassium iodide (http://thyroid.about.com/library/weekly/aa121101a.htm)) to those living within a certain distance from a nuclear power plant, and whether or not it was being followed. She asked whether or not the pills had been distributed, and why the NRC had been reported to be discouraging the distribution. McIntyre replied vaguely alluding to the fact that the NRC was not solely responsible, but that it was a ‘US Government decision, not just the NRC but HHS [Health and Human services] and others.’ It is true that the NRC has worked hard against the burden of purchasing, storing, and maintaining a fresh supply of KI for those populations closest to nuclear reactors. In 2009, the NRC actually canceled it’s policy on KI distribution, stating that it was unnecessary, as it did not protect against all radionuclides that could be potentially released, would cause undue stress on the community, and would delay critical response time by adding more duties to local, state and federal staff.”

Deception: “It appears that McIntyre used his own personal discretion on which information to release to specific reporters or news services. On March 14th, he received an e-mail from Molly McCrea again, this time asking if the United States was possibly sending KI to Japan, or had sent KI to Japan to help out, if he could confirm, and if not who should she contact. McIntyre replied ‘We have not been asked to provide KI’. He further explained, ‘We understand the Japanese authorities have included KI as part of their protective action guidelines, which would indicate they have some stockpiles.’ The reply email was sent on Tuesday March 15th, 2011 at 4:07:00 PM. At 4:10:00 PM, only 3 minutes later, McIntyre rushed a quick note to Matthew Wald (http://enformable.com/2012/02/nrc-failed-to-fully-disclose-their-knowledge-of-events-relating-to-fukushima-daiichi/), a long-time reporter for the New York Times who has written on nuclear energy for years, with the subject line-’KI Info’ stating, ‘Matt-I’m told we distributed approximately 11 million pills. Dave.’”









Hiding knowledge of a radioactive plume bound for the West Coast, USA: Referring to a series of e-mails from David Lew as ‘documents 3,4 and 5′ (http://enformable.com/2011/09/march-12th-2011-1252-pm-foai-communication-reactor-1-water-level-was-known-to-be-below-top-of-active-fuel/) : Thompson writes:

“Yet another caution to limit information given to the public and a heads-up to ‘Expect the public/media focus to turn toward domestic in the next day or so.’ IOW, by the afternoon of March 12 the NRC was in full ass-covering mode for the U.S. nuclear industry.”

Excellent quotes from these e-mails are provided, quotes that show officials were aware of the radioactive plume headed for North America. Why was there no emergency broadcast warning?

“4. Interaction with DHS and federal agencies, including plume plot, possible exposure models, and monitoring of west coast.” This information can only lead to one conclusion, stated perfectly by Thompson: “FEMA standing down, don’t expect the plume to hit the west coast that weekend. NRC thinks unit 2 ‘shut down safely.’ [Heh. The direct cite above indicates clearly federal agencies – FEMA, DHS, DOE, EPA – were very much aware that contamination from Fukushima would travel as a plume and that there would be fallout when it reached the U.S. mainland…”

In ‘document 6 (http://enformable.com/2011/09/march-12th-2011-update-on-fukushima-daiichi-1530-telecon-nrc-unsuccessful-so-far-in-lead-role/)‘, an ‘Internal email’ from one William Ostendorff, and in reference to a 3:30PM conference call, there is another admission of knowledge of the plume, “4. Keep interacting with DHS on potential plume plots and modeling capability, etc…”.

Cover -up:Evidence of an effort to prepare for the inevitable pesky public inquiry can also be found in the internal email of Mr. Ostendorff:“Further develop Q&A as the attention will start to turn to US plants and our level of preparedness/protection from seismic and floods.”

But as Hixon points out, the directives for information control were given the day of the accident indicated in a bulletin from the ‘Operations Center’ dated March 11th at 3:04 PM:

“This is the ‘NOT A DRILL’ notice pictured above the squiggle. It sets the tone for information control with instructions specific to dealing with the international press. In the first paragraph it identifies where employees may direct the press in order to access the ‘official’ press releases from NRC, and urges any NRC employees who ARE contacted by the media to inform the NRC Office of Public Affairs immediately.”

At the highest levels: There is plenty of evidence the White House knew everything and played a ‘lead’ part. In the Osendorff email he clearly states that “NRC posture to hold White House lead for U.S. response, NRC to be support only so as not to focus media attention on NRC-”. Again, in a March 12th, 12:52 PM email from David Lew, we see White House involvement: “NRC remains in the monitoring mode. Chairman attended a meeting with White House. Marty Virgilio participated by VTC.” (video teleconferencing)

Later that afternoon another email from Mr. Lew states that there is a “Deputies Meeting at the White House with significant focus on the nuclear event.”





There is little doubt now that the radioactive plume had an effect on American citizens but keep in mind that people were not falling over dead in the street in numbers and the ‘plume’ is an invisible one so unless one had warning, there was virtually no way of detecting its presence.



According to a GlobalResearch.ca article (http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=28299) based on research printed in the Journal of Health Services (http://www.radiation.org/reading/pubs/HS42_1F.pdf) , Internist and Toxicologist Janette Sherman, MD insists we have paid a heavy toll from the fallout: “Based on our continuing research, the actual death count here (USA) may be as high as 18,000, with influenza and pneumonia, which were up five-fold in the period in question as a cause of death. Deaths are seen across all ages, but we continue to find that infants are hardest hit because their tissues are rapidly multiplying, they have undeveloped immune systems, and the doses of radioisotopes are proportionally greater than for adults.”


It seems that the fundamental problem with what Americans are experiencing is not just radioactive fallout but Fascism, the merging of the corporate and the state. In a fascist state, there is little or no responsible action from the corporations for there is little or no promotion of accountability from the state. The corporations, for all intents and purposes, control the state.



And when the time has come that corporate profits outweigh human safety, has not also the time come, as Americans, to ask ourselves: do we, as a society, even value human life as we once did and if we do what IS the worth of a life? Perhaps for once, it should NOT be determined in terms of a dollar amount.



Additional Reading: There are over a 1,000 pages of FOIA documents that are being analyzed post haste in an effort to reveal the truth about the Fukushima accident and what authorities did or did not do following the meltdowns to protect U.S. citizens.



The 186 page NRC transcript of conference calls: (http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML1205/ML12052A106.pdf) Lot’s of redacting but on page 153 (lines 24 and 25) and page 154 (lines 1-8) of the document Chairman Jaczco is told by Jack Grob that “They asked for monitoring, both land-based and air-based monitoring. The DOE Radiological Assistance Program teams are on the ground in Japan, and they’ll be providing that monitoring. We have already established a relationship with the Department of Energy, and will get that information in real time, and that will be a huge benefit.”



Talking Points Memo: NRC (http://enformable.com/2012/01/march-17th-2011-reactor-4-sfp-dry-fuel-uncovered-radiation-levels-outside-unit-30rhour-after-fire/) talking points as of March 17th, 2011 0600 EDT. Shows radiation plume was headed for the US.



395 pages of NRC Emails and more (http://www.houseoffoust.com/NRC/ML11269A172.pdf)reveal the inner workings of the cover-up. Includes the emails quoted above.

Lapis,
there are such units. They are currently in use and have been since DAYS after Fuku 3/11/11, especially in Japan. Several films clips on YT at the time were posted shown by desparate open air market vendors trying to assure their Japanese customers that their food was healthy and safe to consume.

Furthermore, there is a video on this thread post: http://gold-silver.us/forum/showthread.php?45415-What-if-the-Jap-reactor-Blows-what-will-be-the-effect-on-the-Western-USA&p=519756&viewfull=1#post519756

If you go to YouTube to watch it, you will find several more vids by this same #148 YouTube vid uploader party. One of the more recent ones he's uploaded show multiple hand-held models in use by him and his friends and associates.

Additionally, the protocol from Dr. Chris Busby also found on this thread, which yours truly drew particular attention to, has a testing protocol for determining how to isolate from background any item you wish to test for exisitng radioneuclides.

This advice from Nuclear Expert, Dr. Busby can be found at the bottom of the following post: #2709

Later, yours truly spoke to the ease of locating and acquiring "plumbers' lead" which is a mossy lead as it is described as, and resembles steel wool. It is available at local hardware stores. No one has come forward with the suggestion as to how or where to acquire "roofing lead" such as Busby recommends using. Makes one conclude it is an "English/UK" thing, until someone on this side of the pond enlightens us, yes?

One can make their own testing boats then....one for the suspected item, and one for the clean water acc'd to Busby.

It is the suggestion of the scientific types who are valuable in my life, that said lead boat cradle a pyrex (boron-silicate) dish into which you place said suspect item you are seeking to test.

That boron-silicate container can then be re-rendered inert/cleansed/washed of residual radioactively by normal cleansing protocols and then re-used to test the next item.

TPTB don't want the planetary residents to test our food prior to intake. The encouragement to do so, is even downplayed by the very manufacturers of said hand-held measuring devices about which you are seeking clarity. To appease TPTB, I have yet to find a manufacturer of said hand-held measuring devices say it is allright to use on food. That sounds quite silly to me, but that's what they say in a mfgr caveat emptor.

I DID find one US manufacturer who stated that it was wise to purchase a US made and assembled unit if one was contemplating said purchase, simple due to the cleanliness of the Mueller Tube that does the "reading" since it is mfgd here, stateside.

Pretty sad day to be having this discussion, yes?

The World is Powerless Against Fukushima Fallout

http://media.namx.org/images/editorial/2012/02/0229/y_shimatsu_fukushima/fukushima_500x279.jpghttp://fukushima-diary.com/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-themes/default/images/sp_Mouse.png (http://newamericamedia.org/2012/03/the-world-is-powerless-against-fukushima-fallout.php)
A year on, the Fukushima nuclear disaster has reached far beyond Japan as an encroaching threat to human health everywhere and to the very existence of life on Earth. As the fallout goes global, there’s nowhere to run or hide since even tiny dosages in rainwater and the food chain have a cumulative effect.
In high-tech societies under constant exposure to radiation from medical scanners, security systems, telecom devices and consumer electronics, nearly everyone is teetering at the brink of the cancer abyss. The slightest exposure to dust from Fukushima is a ticket to an early exit.

Despite new admissions of a cover-up from high officials and an independent investigation in Japan, governments and the nuclear establishment continue to deny or downplay the immense dangers posed by atmospheric fallout and sea dumping from the Fukushima meltdowns. An accurate reckoning of the danger to public health worldwide is not being discussed because governments are powerless against the nuclear monstrosity they created.

Decades of assurances about nuclear safety have been blown away by the unexpected global effects of the March meltdowns. The past year’s crisis yanked open a Pandora’s Box of bizarre science that staggers the imagination of corporate scientists and bureaucrat engineers, from whom there comes only dumfounded silence.

These include:
– Previously unknown types of explosive nuclear reactions occurring midair or underground, which have been misrepresented as “hydrogen blasts”
– Expansion of a vast ozone hole over the Arctic Circle, now equal in area to the damaged upper atmosphere over the Antarctic, caused by radioactive iodine and xenon gas caught in the jet stream, leaving the Earth’s air supply unprotected and heightening the threat of skin carcinoma
– High-energy interactions of xenon gas (which decays into cesium) with incoming solar flares and artificial electromagnetic belts created by U.S., NATO and Russian missile-defense shields (this synergy is visible in the northern lights that emit a deep green color due to the excitation of xenon, and it is no coincidence that three American nuclear power plants were incapacitated during the recent solar flare)
– The growing possibility of mass extinction of marine life in the Pacific Ocean due to the nuclear contamination of major spawning waters for plankton and fish, the bottom of the food chain for higher life-forms, including whales and humans
– A rising threat to human reproductive health from ingestion of radioactive isotopes through food, drinking water and respiration, resulting in mass abortions and population decline for Japan, a trend that will extend worldwide
– Mutations of contagious pathogens, such as bird flu, due to genetic disorders in both microorganism and host species, including domesticated animals and wildlife.

Public at Risk From Official Silence

At the molecular level inside a biological cell, gamma-ray bombardment rewrites the genetic code contained in the chromosomes, scrambling the elegant poetry of life into gibberish. Since leukemia, cancers and birth defects can be falsely attributed to other disorders, the governments of North America, Europe and Asia along with international agencies can be counted on to remain silent or mount campaigns of misdiagnosis to protect their nuclear power and weapons programs, along with their food and travel industries. Bureaucrats, at heart and out of self-interest, are cowards.

While the World Health Organization imposed a strict travel ban on Hong Kong during the much less risky SARS outbreak of 1992, the WHO and governments accept those devious ads from the Japanese travel bureau luring tourists with the false claim that the country and its food are safe. With rising numbers of naive tourists returning with serious health problems, residents and travel agents in Singapore and Hong Kong have finally become wary of sending anyone to Japan. Business as usual is death abnormal.

Warhead Recycling Worsened the Crisis

Whatever his timid admissions about the official cover-up so far, former Prime Minister Naoto Kan has yet to disclose the truth behind his more disturbing decisions: first, the absence of stenographers and voice recordings at his emergency Cabinet meetings; and why the government had to order the Tokyo Electric Power Company not to abandon Fukushima No.1 plant after the March 15 mini-nuclear explosions.

The high-level cover-up and lab analysis of cesium-isotope ratios indicate the Japanese nuclear establishment was illegally involved in the reprocessing of weapons-grade uranium at Fukushima No. 1 and probably two other civilian nuclear plants in northern Japan. The U.S. Department of Energy dares not address Tokyo’s violation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty because much of the enriched nuclear material at Fukushima was covertly supplied from the American military arsenal under a suspected 2006 secret accord between the Bush and Abe administrations.

According to whistleblowers in the U.S. non-proliferation agency, highly reactive uranium from dismantled U.S. warheads stored in the Fukushima spent-fuel pools readily ignited after the quake knocked out the water pumps. A transport casket of elongated shape resembling a missile was sky-hooked out of a pool by helicopter soon after the tsunami, but the remainder of the weapons-grade stock was too heavy to remove. The series of detonations prevented repair crews from accessing controls of the reactor cores, which eventually melted through the containment chambers and into the subsurface soil.

When the quake and tsunami hit on March 11, only three reactors out of a total six at Fukushima were scheduled to produce electricity yet in actuality five were operational. Since then plant workers disclosed that the supposedly empty Reactor 4 had been refitted with a new steel shroud in secret by GE and that it was fully loaded with new fuel rods. The two extra reactors were running clandestine operations, the likeliest purpose being the enrichment of uranium prior to extraction. By no coincidence, Hitachi Electric and Honeywell are partners in developing a laser-plasma system to extract highly pure plutonium and uranium

The collaboration between Washington and Tokyo in a covert nuclear-weapons program was a violation of international law that in its hypocrisy and duplicity towers above Iran’s suspected program or North Korea’s puny attempts at bomb-making. Weapons production at Fukushima also violates the foundations of the U.S.-Japan Security treaty, which stipulates that Japan provide military bases in exchange for protection under the American nuclear umbrella. The International Atomic Energy Agency’s selective enforcement of the counter-proliferation treaty only spurs smaller nations to invest in nuclear deterrence against the real possibility of a covert build-up by Japan, Israel, India and other U.S. allies.

Now, to make an optimistic prediction: Considering the 33-year half-life of cesium, far more people worldwide can be expected to die horribly due to the fallout of Fukushima rather than in any nuclear war with Iran or North Korea. Proliferation begins at home; not only inside faulty nuclear plants but whenever we switch on a television set or open the refrigerator door. Our consumerist demand for convenience leads to docile acceptance of mass suicide. Laziness – both physical and mental – is thus the greatest of the seven deadly sins of this nuclear era.

Earthquakes and volcano eruptions are becoming more frequent in Japan as well as the entire Ring of Fire. Nearly every nuclear plant in the Pacific region has reached the limit of its spent fuel rod capacity, meaning these time bombs are fully loaded and ready to blow. Even when the cesium and strontium threats diminish, the possibility of mass extinction will remain for as long as humankind can muddle along. The chunks of uranium blasted into seawater around Fukushima have a half-life of 700,000 years. Many more quakes, tsunamis and lava eruptions are coming – Fukushima was only the first such crisis and it’s still not over.

Argenteum,

I don't know how I missed it, but I wasn't aware of the number of US service personnel based in Tokyo? What on EARTH for?

So, if US service personnel are on a boat, they are immediately removed 50 km? But if they are land based it's okay to nuke them and their families?

Oh, my God.......

And many heartfelt and sincere thanks for the Fukushima Diary writer, Mochizuki.

The horrors that await are incomprehensible.

I don't know how I missed it, but I wasn't aware of the number of US service personnel based in Tokyo? What on EARTH for?

There's several in Japan, and a couple in northern Japan.


So, if US service personnel are on a boat, they are immediately removed 50 km? But if they are land based it's okay to nuke them and their families?IIRC, last year the dependents were evacuated for a while, and I think were allowed to live in the States if they wanted to. But then that means splitting up the family, which most would rather not do since there's already a lot of extended separations and living apart as it is.

Can you believe this Fukushima nightmare is approaching the one-year anniversary? And doesn't seem likely to end any time soon? Prepare for nuclear shill "experts" to go on teevee saying how there's still nothing to worry about radiation-wise.

93 Long Lived Radioactive Nuclear Elements
Very little has changed since Chernobyl blew up and radiated everyone, except that many more nuclear accidents, meltdowns, melt throughs and ‘accidental’ radiation releases happened, plus way more radioactive substances are now in the air, on the ground and in the ocean as well as inside all of us.
How many radioactive elements and isotopes are released from something like Fukushima, some of which eventually end up inside all of us?
According to Asahi: about 1,000 kinds of radioactive materials have been released from Fukushima reactors.

Japanese Regularly Eating Food
Containing Radio Nuclides
Such As Cesium
By Richard Wilcox PhD
Exclusiive to Rense
3-8-12

“Nuclear power? We don't have a hope. These people are so far off the track they should be classified as stark raving lunatics. The population is not out on the street demanding the removal of all the lunatics? They must all be lunatics too (1).”
- Tony Boys, nuclear crisis archive: http://candobetter.net/node/2603

Damnably unstable atoms have been carelessly released from the Demon From Hell Nuclear Reactor in Fukushima, Japan. That’s OK: a becqueral a day keeps the doctor away, but not the undertaker.

On paper, Japan has radiation exposure limits for food that are the same as the EU and stricter than the UN or the USA (2). Beginning on April 1, 2012, standards will become even stricter allowing for only 100 becquerals per kilogram (Bq/kg) in food (3). So those of us living in Japan will be pretty safe? Not so fast.

I recently came across a researcher named William Milberry and I recommend his Youtube site for a number of informative reports on the radioactive contamination levels in food and soil in Japan (4). In one video I learned of the following website that does independent testing and was not shocked to learn that much of the food in the northeastern and greater Tokyo region that is being produced has detectable levels of radiation (5; 6; 7). Even for those who cannot read Japanese, by clicking on this link:

http://www.maff.go.jp/noutiku_eikyo/mhlw3.html

and opening subsequent links and pdf files there are lists of food by prefecture and at the far right of the chart you will see the English for Bq/kg and below that the numbers for cesium, 134 and 137. Entries are posted nearly everyday and I perused several, including one page that covered early March. The chart shows that a number of prefectures in the northeast of Japan including Fukushima have food products such as beef, eggs, soybeans and vegetables that contain cesium. What the tests do not measure, but we can suspect may be there as well, is strontium and other potentially harmful radio nuclides.

Many items appear to be eggs and meat, for example, and may have less than 20 bq/kg. It should be remembered that it is possible that small amounts of radiation may be detected due to background sources or from the atmospheric atomic bomb tests. On another page I discovered that in Fukushima prefecture 19,191 items were tested with 683 items above the 500 becqueral limit (therefore not sold), with most of those items being mushrooms or fish. Only two items of grain, wheat and brown rice, were found over the limit out of 1,847 grains tested. In other prefectures around Fukushima, there have been fewer tests and fewer items found to be over the safety limit. Certainly the lion’s share of radiation from the Fukushima blasts that did not go out to sea landed in that prefecture.

However, this data is contradicted by the following report:

The Fukushima prefectural government announced on January 27 that
radioactive cesium exceeding the provisional safety limit (500
becquerels/kg) was detected from "mochi" rice produced by a farmer in Date
City in Fukushima Prefecture. The density was 1110 becquerels/kg of
radioactive cesium. According to the prefectural government, 57.5 kilograms
of this rice had already been sold by the first half of November 2011 at a
direct sales depot in the city. The direct sales depot is calling for the return
of the rice (8).

Therefore, while what appear to be fairly rigorous standards for independent testing of food items exists, there is still room for error, omission, or possible criminal negligence if suppliers are hiding facts about radiation in their products. These foods are being distributed around Japan as if they are safe to eat, but are they really? Given the choice between genetically modified or radioactive food versus GMO-free or radioactive-free food, which would you choose? Hmmm?

One acquaintance from Sweden told me "we should not get riled up" about the generally modest amount of radiation in Japanese food given they eat much higher levels in Europe and it is no problem. Reindeer meat in Sweden is sold at permissible levels of 1,500 becquerals per kilogram. But another fellow who used to work for the Canadian government as an environmental chemist warned me that “basically, no radiation should be acceptable other than background.” This report from the National Academy of Sciences (9) finds that “there are no safe doses of radiation. Decades of research show clearly that any dose of radiation increases an individual's risk for the development of cancer (10).”

Videos by Ian Goddard help to understand the science of risk assessment of radiation (11). In his description of the scientific method (beginning at 5:40 in the video) he uses a chart to explain how the pyramid of scientific evidence has nine levels of meaningfulness in terms of scientific validity. In the case he is citing the authors of a pro-nuclear paper try to show how radiation is essentially safe by only relying on the lowest level of evidence verification, yet passing it off as high quality research. Contrast this to Yablokov’s book which posits that about a million people have died from Chernobyl, a number that is vastly higher than what the nuclear establishment would have us believe. Yablokov and his team of researchers take into account complex epidemiological studies and evidence gathering involving case reports, systematic reviews and meta analyses of previous high quality data and studies (12).

Therefore, can we trust the establishment view that the levels of external and internal radiation in Japan (and Fukushima’s effects overseas) are safe? This is a long term science experiment to see what the threshold of cancer and other diseases will be over the next three hundred years, which is the time cesium remains radioactive. Remember, even if an adult were to consume a certain level of “safe” radiation in their food, that does not mean the DNA of a parent may not be adversely affected and their damaged DNA passed to their offspring. This is what scientists in the Chernobyl region are discovering twenty five years after that accident: species of insects and birds seem to be de-evolving toward a permanent die-off of the ecosystem (13).

Personally, I try to buy most of my food from other regions than the northeast by getting vegetables and rice from much farther southwest in the country. I am a semi-vegan anyway, and eat reduced meat or fish especially given the radiation and mercury in seafood these days. Although I tried to convince my wife otherwise, the rice she buys is organically grown but from northern Akita prefecture which is about 270 km to the north of the danger zone. But their website claims the rice has less than one bq/kg and that they abide strict standards (14).

Many people simply do not care about what is in their food, be it chemical agents in processed “food” to give it flavor, or unintentional amounts of pollutants from farming, nuclear accidents or industrial blow-off. I have heard many stories of spouses in Japan who have differing opinions on the radiation matter with one spouse very concerned while the other blurts out in frustration: “who cares, we have to eat!”

As the Ex-SKF blogger notes:

Who is going to eat Fukushima rice? Probably the same people eating it
now, at schools, hospitals, at family restaurants, convenience stores. Oh and
the increasingly unpopular prime minister, Yoshihiko Noda, who demanded
that the Japanese citizens eat Fukushima rice like he did every day (15).

The nuclear cartel is using the media to brainwash people to “shut up and eat” by pimping pop stars and flashing adverts at them (16). Richer and more educated people can buy their food from upscale markets where foods are imported from farther distances, and that cost more. The average people who can’t be bothered to worry or can’t afford it will eat the cheap rice ball from the convenience store. School children (in the less affluent districts?) will have the cesium laced rice served at their school lunches.

To make matters worse it has now been decided that Tokyo will will burn radioactive debris at the 23 wards in the city (17). It is reported that incinerators are rigged for household garbage and not industrial or radioactive waste. In Tokyo Bay radioactive ashes are being dumped without proper treatment, allowing the spread of cesium in the local environment (18). These kinds of sloppy practices are further evidence of a government that is short sighted, incompetent and dangerous.

Some people think "Japan is finished" or that "most of Japan is now uninhabitable" which is not true. On the other hand, it is still a very grave situation in Fukushima and the government's attitude that anyone who is opposed to nukes is "as stupid as a monkey" is no laughing matter (19).http://www.rense.com/general95/jpmse.html

The worldwide nukes link is really cool Serpo, thanks.

There is a part of me, after watching the 2000+ nuclear weapons that have gone boom on earth since 1945, that wonders if the scare over a nuclear holocaust and post apocalyptic repercussions is bollocks. In 50 years, over 2000 weapons went off. We're all still here. Would it really be a whole different paradigm if it were from war and not testing?

Read somewhere that it is all in the upper atmosphere and hasnt done the planet much good at all......reason they dont do atmospheric testing anymore..........

Let’s focus on just 93 out of the 1,000 total, shall we? There are 93 different long lived radioactive elements that hang around and pollute both the environment and us for at least 17,000 years and up to BILLIONS of years in total decay life.


This is what we can tell our kids that we left this all for them to clean up, once we are gone, because there is no way we can clean up this mess. The best we can do is shut down all of the nuclear reactors. But that does not clean up the mess we made.
The Egyptian pyramids are only 5,000 years old, and the Bible is about 2,000 years old.


How much sense does it make to heat water for only 30 years with radioactive ‘fuel’ that blows up and melts down (creating huge non livable zones for 50,000 years to 5 Billion years?
Do we really want our future generations of kids and grandkids to have to deal with the radioactive leftovers from the spent fuel, laying around for billions of years, just so we can have hot water TODAY?


Do we REALLY want our kids and grandkids for infinite future generations to pay for the storage and guarding of these dangerous, terrorist inviting waste products?


The Longest Lived Radiation Producing Elements
1. Technetium 99 - 2 million years (200,000 years X 10) This element produces the huge amounts of LLFP radioactivity. It also emits beta particles and is hazardous if ingested. It forms anions that move around easily in environment. Tons of this element have been disposed of in the ocean. This element emits X-rays. The most dangerous part about technetium is inhalation of this element in a dust or liquid form. If it gets in the lungs or intestines, Technetium 99 can cause cancer, and increase the risk of getting cancer. “An estimated 160 TBq (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Becquerel) (about 250 kg) of technetium-99 was released into the environment up to 1994 by atmospheric nuclear tests.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technetium-99#cite_note-yoshihara-1) The amount of technetium-99 from nuclear reactors released into the environment up to 1986 is estimated to be on the order of 1000 TBq (about 1600 kg), primarily by nuclear fuel reprocessing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fuel_reprocessing); most of this was discharged into the ocean. (The nuclear industry believes that dilution makes it safe) In recent years, reprocessing methods have improved to reduce emissions, but as of 2005 the primary release of technetium-99 into the environment is by the Sellafield (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sellafield) plant, which released an estimated 550 TBq (about 900 kg) from 1995-1999 into the Irish Sea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Sea). From 2000 onwards the amount has been limited by regulation to 90 TBq (about 140 kg) per year.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technetium-99#cite_note-2) “
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technetium-99


2. Tin 126 – 2.3 - 4 million years (230,000 years X 10 or 20) Emits gamma radiation, and is dangerous with external or internal exposure. Tin - 126 decays into antimony -126. Antimony - 126 also emits gamma rays, otherwise called X Rays, making external or internal exposure to Tin-126 dangerous. Fast breeder reactors produce more of this than other reactors, but all nuclear reactors produce some of this element, as well as shorter lived radioactive cousins. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tin-126#Tin-126


3. Selenium 79 – 3.2 - 6 million years (327,000 years X 10) Selenium-79 is a radioisotope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope) of selenium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selenium) present in spent nuclear fuel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spent_nuclear_fuel) and the wastes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_waste) resulting from reprocessing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_reprocessing) this fuel. It is one of only 7 long-lived fission products (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long-lived_fission_product). Its half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) has been variously reported as 650,000 years, 65,000 years, 1.13 million years, 480,000 years, 295,000 years, 377,000 years and most recently with best current precision, 327,000 years.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selenium-79#cite_note-0)[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selenium-79#cite_note-1) Se-79 decays by emitting a beta particle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_particle) Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selenium-79


4. Zirconium 93 - 15 million years + (1.53 million years X 10) “93Zr is a radioisotope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope) of zirconium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium) with a half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) of 1.53 million years, decaying with a low-energy beta particle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_particle) to Niobium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niobium)-93m, which decays with a half life of 14 years and a low-energy gamma ray (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma_ray) to ordinary 93Nb.
Nuclear fission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fission) produces it at a fission yield of 6.2956%, on a par with the other most abundant fission products. Nuclear reactors usually contain large amounts of zirconium as fuel rod (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuel_rod) cladding (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cladding_%28nuclear_fuel%29) (see Zircaloy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zircaloy)), and neutron irradiation of 92Zr also produces some 93Zr.”
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium-93#Zirconium-93
“Consuming about 1% of the Zr supply, zirconium is used for cladding nuclear reactor fuels.[15] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#cite_note-Ullmann-14) For this purpose, it is mainly used in the form of zircaloys (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zircaloy). The benefits of Zr alloys is their low neutron-capture cross-section (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron_cross-section) and good resistance to corrosion under normal service conditions.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#cite_note-madehow-4)[6] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#cite_note-CRC2008-5) The development of efficient methods for the separation of zirconium from hafnium was required for this application.
One disadvantage of zirconium alloys is their reactivity toward water at high temperatures leading to the formation of hydrogen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen) gas and to the accelerated degradation of the fuel rod cladding (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fuel#Common_physical_forms_of_nuclear_fuel ):
Zr + 2 H2O → ZrO2 + 2 H2
This exothermic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exothermic) reaction is very slow below 100 °C, but at temperature above 900 °C the reaction becomes rapid and is proportional to the square of mass of metal available. Most metals undergo similar reactions, such as e.g. iron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron) whose reaction with water steam inside an incandescent tube was used by Antoine Lavoisier (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_Lavoisier) to produce hydrogen. The redox reaction is relevant to the instability of fuel assemblies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fuel)at high temperatures,[27] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#cite_note-26) This reaction was responsible for a small hydrogen explosion first observed inside the reactor building of Three Mile Island (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Mile_Island_accident) accident at the nuclear power plant in 1979, but then, the containment building was not damaged. The same reaction occurred in the reactors 1, 2 and 3 of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukushima_I_Nuclear_Power_Plant) (Japan) and in the spent fuel pool (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spent_fuel_pool) of reactor 4 after the reactors cooling was interrupted by the earthquake and tsunami (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_T%C5%8Dhoku_earthquake_and_tsunami) disaster of March 11, 2011 leading to the Fukushima I nuclear accidents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukushima_I_nuclear_accidents). After venting of hydrogen in the maintenance hall of these three reactors, the explosive mixture of hydrogen with air oxygen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxygen) detonated, severely damaging the installations and at least one of the containment buildings. To avoid explosion, the direct venting of hydrogen to the open atmosphere would have been a preferred design option. Now, to prevent the risk of explosion in many pressurized water reactor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressurized_water_reactor) (PWR) containment buildings, a catalyst (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalyst)-based recombinator is installed to rapidly convert hydrogen and oxygen into water at room temperature before explosivity limit is reached.”
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium


5. Iodine 129 - 157 million years (15.7 million years X 10) This radioactive iodine has a half life about a billion times longer than iodine 131. “129I is primarily formed from the fission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fission) of uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium) and plutonium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium) in nuclear reactors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_reactors). Significant amounts were released into the atmosphere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmosphere) as a result of nuclear weapons testing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_weapons_testing) in the 1950s and 1960s.” 129I decays with a half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) of 15.7 million years, with low-energy beta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_particle) and gamma (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma_ray) emissions, to xenon-129 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenon-129) (129Xe)” It is also released in large quantities when a nuclear reactor melts down, along with it’s shorter lived radioactive cousin.
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iodine-129


6. Palladium 107 - 65 million years (6.5 million years x 10) “Palladium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palladium)-107 is the second longest lived radioactive element. It undergoes pure beta decay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_decay) to Ag-107 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver-107).”
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palladium-107#Palladium-107


7. Caesium 135 - 23 million years (2.3 million years x 10) The longest-lived radioisotopes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope) are 135Cs with a half-life of 2.3 million years…..Beginning in 1945 with the commencement of nuclear testing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_testing), caesium isotopes were released into the atmosphere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth%27s_atmosphere) where it is absorbed readily into solution and is returned to the surface of the earth as a component of radioactive fallout (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioactive_fallout).
“The other caesium isotopes have half-lives from a few days to fractions of a second. Almost all caesium produced from nuclear fission comes from beta decay of originally more neutron-rich fission products, passing through isotopes of iodine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotopes_of_iodine) then isotopes of xenon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotopes_of_xenon). Because these elements are volatile and can diffuse through nuclear fuel or air, caesium is often created far from the original site of fission.”
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caesium-135#Caesium-135


8. Uranium 234 ~ 2.46 million years * , (246,000 years x 10) “U-234 occurs as an indirect decay product (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decay_product) of uranium-238 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238), but it makes up only 0.0055% (55 parts per million (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parts_per_million)) of the raw uranium because its half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) of just 245,500 years is only about 1/18,000 as long as that of U-238. The path of production of U-234 via nuclear decay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_decay) is as follows: U-238 nuclei emit an alpha particle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_particle) to become thorium-234 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorium-234) (Th-234). Next, with a short half-life, Th-234 nuclei emit a beta particle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_particle) to become proactinium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proactinium)-234 (Pa-234). Finally, Pa-234 nuclei decay by alpha emission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_emission) to thorium-230, except for the small percentage of nuclei which undergo spontaneous fission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spontaneous_fission). Depleted uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depleted_uranium) contains much less U-234 (around 0.001% [2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-234#cite_note-1)) which makes the radioactivity of depleted uranium about one-half of that of natural uranium. Natural uranium has an "equilibrium" concentration of U-234 at the point where an equal number of decays of U-238 and U-234 will occur. Depleted uranium also contains less U-235, but in spite of its half-life that is much shorter than the one of U-238, the concentration of U-235 in natural uranium is low enough (about 0.7%) so that the U-235 depletion does not result in a significant reduction in radioactivity.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-234


9, Uranium-238 ~ 4.468 billion years (700 million years X 10) Around 99.284% of natural uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_uranium) is uranium-238, which has a half-life of 4.468 billion years).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238#cite_note-natortg-0) Depleted uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depleted_uranium)has an even higher concentration of the 238U isotope, and even low-enriched uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-enriched_uranium), while having a higher proportion of the uranium-235 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-235) isotope, is still mostly 238U. Reprocessed uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reprocessed_uranium) is also mainly 238U, with about as much uranium-235 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-235) as natural uranium, a comparable proportion of uranium-236 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-236), and much smaller amounts of other isotopes of uranium such as uranium-234 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-234), uranium-233 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-233), and uranium-232 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-232).[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238#cite_note-1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238


10. Uranium 235 ~ 7030.8 million years * (700 million years X 10) “It was discovered in 1935 by Arthur Jeffrey Dempster (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Jeffrey_Dempster).

If the reaction will sustain itself, it is said to be critical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_mass), and the mass of U-235 required to produce the critical condition is said to be a critical mass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_mass_%28nuclear%29). A critical chain reaction can be achieved at low concentrations of U-235 if the neutrons from fission are moderated (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron_moderator) to lower their speed, since the probability for fission with slow neutrons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_neutron) is greater. A fission chain reaction produces intermediate mass fragments (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fission_product) which are highly radioactive (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioactive) and produce further energy by their radioactive decay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioactive_decay).

The fissioning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fission) of an atom of uranium-235 in the reactor of a nuclear power plant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_power_plant) produces two to three neutrons, and these neutrons can be absorbed by uranium-238 to produce plutonium-239 and other isotopes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotope). Plutonium-239 can also absorb neutrons and fission along with the uranium-235 in a reactor. In any operating nuclear reactor containing U-238, some plutonium-239 will accumulate in the nuclear fuel.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium_239#cite_note-3) Unlike reactors used to produce weapons-grade plutonium, commercial nuclear power reactors typically operate at a high burnup (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burnup) that allows a significant amount of plutonium to build up in irradiated reactor fuel. Plutonium-239 will be present both in the reactor core during operation and in spent nuclear fuel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spent_nuclear_fuel)that has been removed from the reactor at the end of the fuel assembly’s service life (typically several years). Spent nuclear fuel commonly contains about 0.8% plutonium-239.
Plutonium-239 present in reactor fuel can absorb neutrons and fission just as uranium-235 can. Since plutonium-239 is constantly being created in the reactor core during operation, the use of plutonium-239 as nuclear fuel in power plants can occur without reprocessing of spent fuel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_reprocessing); the plutonium-239 is fissioned in the same fuel rods in which it is produced. Fissioning of plutonium-239 provides about one-third of the total energy produced in a typical commercial nuclear power plant. Reactor fuel would accumulate much more than 0.8% plutonium-239 during its service life if some plutonium-239 were not constantly being “burned off” by fissioning.
A small percentage of plutonium-239 can be deliberately added to fresh nuclear fuel. Such fuel is called MOX (mixed oxide) fuel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOX_fuel), as it contains a mixture of uranium oxide (UO2) and plutonium oxide (PuO2).

93 Long Lived Radioactive Nuclear Elements
Very little has changed since Chernobyl blew up and radiated everyone, except that many more nuclear accidents, meltdowns, melt throughs and ‘accidental’ radiation releases happened, plus way more radioactive substances are now in the air, on the ground and in the ocean as well as inside all of us.
How many radioactive elements and isotopes are released from something like Fukushima, some of which eventually end up inside all of us?
According to Asahi: about 1,000 kinds of radioactive materials have been released from Fukushima reactors.

Let’s focus on just 93 out of the 1,000 total, shall we? There are 93 different long lived radioactive elements that hang around and pollute both the environment and us for at least 17,000 years and up to BILLIONS of years in total decay life.


This is what we can tell our kids that we left this all for them to clean up, once we are gone, because there is no way we can clean up this mess. The best we can do is shut down all of the nuclear reactors. But that does not clean up the mess we made.
The Egyptian pyramids are only 5,000 years old, and the Bible is about 2,000 years old.


How much sense does it make to heat water for only 30 years with radioactive ‘fuel’ that blows up and melts down (creating huge non livable zones for 50,000 years to 5 Billion years?
Do we really want our future generations of kids and grandkids to have to deal with the radioactive leftovers from the spent fuel, laying around for billions of years, just so we can have hot water TODAY?


Do we REALLY want our kids and grandkids for infinite future generations to pay for the storage and guarding of these dangerous, terrorist inviting waste products?


The Longest Lived Radiation Producing Elements
1. Technetium 99 - 2 million years (200,000 years X 10) This element produces the huge amounts of LLFP radioactivity. It also emits beta particles and is hazardous if ingested. It forms anions that move around easily in environment. Tons of this element have been disposed of in the ocean. This element emits X-rays. The most dangerous part about technetium is inhalation of this element in a dust or liquid form. If it gets in the lungs or intestines, Technetium 99 can cause cancer, and increase the risk of getting cancer. “An estimated 160 TBq (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Becquerel) (about 250 kg) of technetium-99 was released into the environment up to 1994 by atmospheric nuclear tests.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technetium-99#cite_note-yoshihara-1) The amount of technetium-99 from nuclear reactors released into the environment up to 1986 is estimated to be on the order of 1000 TBq (about 1600 kg), primarily by nuclear fuel reprocessing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fuel_reprocessing); most of this was discharged into the ocean. (The nuclear industry believes that dilution makes it safe) In recent years, reprocessing methods have improved to reduce emissions, but as of 2005 the primary release of technetium-99 into the environment is by the Sellafield (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sellafield) plant, which released an estimated 550 TBq (about 900 kg) from 1995-1999 into the Irish Sea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Sea). From 2000 onwards the amount has been limited by regulation to 90 TBq (about 140 kg) per year.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technetium-99#cite_note-2) “
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technetium-99


2. Tin 126 – 2.3 - 4 million years (230,000 years X 10 or 20) Emits gamma radiation, and is dangerous with external or internal exposure. Tin - 126 decays into antimony -126. Antimony - 126 also emits gamma rays, otherwise called X Rays, making external or internal exposure to Tin-126 dangerous. Fast breeder reactors produce more of this than other reactors, but all nuclear reactors produce some of this element, as well as shorter lived radioactive cousins. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tin-126#Tin-126


3. Selenium 79 – 3.2 - 6 million years (327,000 years X 10) Selenium-79 is a radioisotope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope) of selenium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selenium) present in spent nuclear fuel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spent_nuclear_fuel) and the wastes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_waste) resulting from reprocessing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_reprocessing) this fuel. It is one of only 7 long-lived fission products (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long-lived_fission_product). Its half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) has been variously reported as 650,000 years, 65,000 years, 1.13 million years, 480,000 years, 295,000 years, 377,000 years and most recently with best current precision, 327,000 years.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selenium-79#cite_note-0)[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selenium-79#cite_note-1) Se-79 decays by emitting a beta particle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_particle) Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selenium-79


4. Zirconium 93 - 15 million years + (1.53 million years X 10) “93Zr is a radioisotope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope) of zirconium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium) with a half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) of 1.53 million years, decaying with a low-energy beta particle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_particle) to Niobium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niobium)-93m, which decays with a half life of 14 years and a low-energy gamma ray (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma_ray) to ordinary 93Nb.
Nuclear fission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fission) produces it at a fission yield of 6.2956%, on a par with the other most abundant fission products. Nuclear reactors usually contain large amounts of zirconium as fuel rod (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuel_rod) cladding (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cladding_%28nuclear_fuel%29) (see Zircaloy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zircaloy)), and neutron irradiation of 92Zr also produces some 93Zr.”
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium-93#Zirconium-93
“Consuming about 1% of the Zr supply, zirconium is used for cladding nuclear reactor fuels.[15] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#cite_note-Ullmann-14) For this purpose, it is mainly used in the form of zircaloys (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zircaloy). The benefits of Zr alloys is their low neutron-capture cross-section (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron_cross-section) and good resistance to corrosion under normal service conditions.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#cite_note-madehow-4)[6] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#cite_note-CRC2008-5) The development of efficient methods for the separation of zirconium from hafnium was required for this application.
One disadvantage of zirconium alloys is their reactivity toward water at high temperatures leading to the formation of hydrogen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen) gas and to the accelerated degradation of the fuel rod cladding (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fuel#Common_physical_forms_of_nuclear_fuel ):
Zr + 2 H2O → ZrO2 + 2 H2
This exothermic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exothermic) reaction is very slow below 100 °C, but at temperature above 900 °C the reaction becomes rapid and is proportional to the square of mass of metal available. Most metals undergo similar reactions, such as e.g. iron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron) whose reaction with water steam inside an incandescent tube was used by Antoine Lavoisier (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_Lavoisier) to produce hydrogen. The redox reaction is relevant to the instability of fuel assemblies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fuel)at high temperatures,[27] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zirconium#cite_note-26) This reaction was responsible for a small hydrogen explosion first observed inside the reactor building of Three Mile Island (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Mile_Island_accident) accident at the nuclear power plant in 1979, but then, the containment building was not damaged. The same reaction occurred in the reactors 1, 2 and 3 of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukushima_I_Nuclear_Power_Plant) (Japan) and in the spent fuel pool (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spent_fuel_pool) of reactor 4 after the reactors cooling was interrupted by the earthquake and tsunami (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_T%C5%8Dhoku_earthquake_and_tsunami) disaster of March 11, 2011 leading to the Fukushima I nuclear accidents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukushima_I_nuclear_accidents). After venting of hydrogen in the maintenance hall of these three reactors, the explosive mixture of hydrogen with air oxygen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxygen) detonated, severely damaging the installations and at least one of the containment buildings. To avoid explosion, the direct venting of hydrogen to the open atmosphere would have been a preferred design option. Now, to prevent the risk of explosion in many pressurized water reactor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressurized_water_reactor) (PWR) containment buildings, a catalyst (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalyst)-based recombinator is installed to rapidly convert hydrogen and oxygen into water at room temperature before explosivity limit is reached.”

5. Iodine 129 - 157 million years (15.7 million years X 10) This radioactive iodine has a half life about a billion times longer than iodine 131. “129I is primarily formed from the fission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fission) of uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium) and plutonium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium) in nuclear reactors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_reactors). Significant amounts were released into the atmosphere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmosphere) as a result of nuclear weapons testing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_weapons_testing) in the 1950s and 1960s.” 129I decays with a half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) of 15.7 million years, with low-energy beta (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_particle) and gamma (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma_ray) emissions, to xenon-129 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenon-129) (129Xe)” It is also released in large quantities when a nuclear reactor melts down, along with it’s shorter lived radioactive cousin.

6. Palladium 107 - 65 million years (6.5 million years x 10) “Palladium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palladium)-107 is the second longest lived radioactive element. It undergoes pure beta decay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_decay) to Ag-107 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver-107).”
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palladium-107#Palladium-107


7. Caesium 135 - 23 million years (2.3 million years x 10) The longest-lived radioisotopes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope) are 135Cs with a half-life of 2.3 million years…..Beginning in 1945 with the commencement of nuclear testing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_testing), caesium isotopes were released into the atmosphere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth%27s_atmosphere) where it is absorbed readily into solution and is returned to the surface of the earth as a component of radioactive fallout (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioactive_fallout).
“The other caesium isotopes have half-lives from a few days to fractions of a second. Almost all caesium produced from nuclear fission comes from beta decay of originally more neutron-rich fission products, passing through isotopes of iodine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotopes_of_iodine) then isotopes of xenon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotopes_of_xenon). Because these elements are volatile and can diffuse through nuclear fuel or air, caesium is often created far from the original site of fission.”

8. Uranium 234 ~ 2.46 million years * , (246,000 years x 10) “U-234 occurs as an indirect decay product (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decay_product) of uranium-238 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238), but it makes up only 0.0055% (55 parts per million (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parts_per_million)) of the raw uranium because its half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) of just 245,500 years is only about 1/18,000 as long as that of U-238. The path of production of U-234 via nuclear decay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_decay) is as follows: U-238 nuclei emit an alpha particle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_particle) to become thorium-234 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorium-234) (Th-234). Next, with a short half-life, Th-234 nuclei emit a beta particle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_particle) to become proactinium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proactinium)-234 (Pa-234). Finally, Pa-234 nuclei decay by alpha emission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_emission) to thorium-230, except for the small percentage of nuclei which undergo spontaneous fission (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spontaneous_fission). Depleted uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depleted_uranium) contains much less U-234 (around 0.001% [2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-234#cite_note-1)) which makes the radioactivity of depleted uranium about one-half of that of natural uranium. Natural uranium has an "equilibrium" concentration of U-234 at the point where an equal number of decays of U-238 and U-234 will occur. Depleted uranium also contains less U-235, but in spite of its half-life that is much shorter than the one of U-238, the concentration of U-235 in natural uranium is low enough (about 0.7%) so that the U-235 depletion does not result in a significant reduction in radioactivity.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-234


9, Uranium-238 ~ 4.468 billion years (700 million years X 10) Around 99.284% of natural uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_uranium) is uranium-238, which has a half-life of 4.468 billion years).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238#cite_note-natortg-0) Depleted uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depleted_uranium)has an even higher concentration of the 238U isotope, and even low-enriched uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-enriched_uranium), while having a higher proportion of the uranium-235 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-235) isotope, is still mostly 238U. Reprocessed uranium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reprocessed_uranium) is also mainly 238U, with about as much uranium-235 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-235) as natural uranium, a comparable proportion of uranium-236 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-236), and much smaller amounts of other isotopes of uranium such as uranium-234 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-234), uranium-233 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-233), and uranium-232 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-232).[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238#cite_note-1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238


10. Uranium 235 ~ 7030.8 million years * (700 million years X 10) “It was discovered in 1935 by Arthur Jeffrey Dempster (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Jeffrey_Dempster). If at least one neutron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron) from U-235 fission strikes another nucleus and causes it to fission, then the chain reaction will continue. If the reaction will sustain itself, it is said to be critical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_mass), and the mass of U-235 required to produce the critical condition is said to be a critical mass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_mass_%28nuclear%29).

12. Neptunium 237 – 20,140,000 years (2,144,000 years * x 20)
“19 neptunium radioisotopes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope) have been characterized, with the most stable being 237Np with a half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) of 2.14 million years, 236Np with a half-life of 154,000 years, and 235Np with a half-life of 396.1 day.
Neptunium accumulates in commercial household ionization-chamber smoke detectors from decay of the (typically) 0.2 microgram (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microgram) of americium-241 initially present as a source of ionizing radiation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionizing_radiation). With a half-life of 432 years, the americium-241 in a smoke detector includes about 3% neptunium after 20 years, and about 15% after 100 years.
Due to its long half-life neptunium becomes the major contributor of the total radiation in 10,000 years. As it is unclear what happens to the containment in that long time span, an extraction of the neptunium would minimize the contamination of the environment if the nuclear waste could be mobilized after several thousand years.[21] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neptunium_237#cite_note-20)[22] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neptunium_237#cite_note-21)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neptunium_237
“Neptunium is found in reactors as a by-product of plutonium production from uranium-238 (about one part neptunium is produced for every 1,000 parts plutonium). All neptunium isotopes are radioactive; the stablest is neptunium-237, with a half-life of 2,144,000 years, and among the most unstable is neptunium-225, with a half-life of more than 2 microseconds.” http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/409395/neptunium-237


Ruthenium 103 ~ 390 days (39 days x 10) [Ruthenium is a fission product of uranium-235.]
Ruthenium 106 ~3 years (374 days * x 10)
Strontium-90 ~ 28.85 years [Strontium-90 is a product of nuclear fission and is found in large amounts in spent nuclear fuel and in radioactive waste from nuclear reactors. It is often attracted to bone, and is one of the causes of leukemia.


13. Americium-243– 70,300 years (7,370 years * x 10)

Americium-243 has a mass of 243.06138 g/mol and a half-life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half-life) of 7,370 years, the longest lasting of all americium isotopes. It is formed in the nuclear fuel cycle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_fuel_cycle) by neutron capture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron_capture) on plutonium-242 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium-242) followed by beta decay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beta_decay).[7] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americium-241#cite_note-Americium-243-6) Production increases exponentially with increasing burnup (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burnup) as a total of 5 neutron captures on 238U (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium-238) are required.
243Am is a hazardous substance, because it can cause cancer. 239Np, which is formed from 243Am, emits dangerous gamma rays, making 243Am the most dangerous isotope of Americium.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americium-241#cite_note-anl-0) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Americium-241#Americium-241


Isotope
Half-life (yr) x 10 to total decay into another element, usually also radioactive. The longer the half life, the more one has to multiply to get the longer half life total decay time. This is what is present in nuclear plant melt downs and after nuclear bomb explosions or accidental melt downs.

Dr Busby: Children with Cancer

Chris Busby lays into the UK charity Children with Cancer, the largest childhood cancer charity in the UK, which he explains is standing in the way of finding the real causes of childhood cancer. He advises people to stop donating their money to an organisation that wastes it and which avoids looking at what is the obvious cause of childhood cancer, environmental exposure to radioactive contamination. This is clear from the recent studies of uranium particle exposure in Fallujah Iraq and a 14-fold increase in childhood cancer in that town. Nuclear sites, he argues, also run on uranium and release particulates, and are associated with childhood cancer. He accuses the conference committee of bias and draws attention to the astonishing choice of ex- nuclear industry British Nuclear Fuels (Sellafield) research chief, Richard Wakeford, (a man who has described himself as BNFLs Rottweiler) as the CWC plenary conference speaker on the relationship between ionizing radiation and childhood leukemia. He asks members of the public to write and complain to the charity commission and the trustees of the CWC .

I confess to turning OFF the TV when the pomp and circumstance by the "anointed emperor of Japan and his wife" appeared in the midst of hundreds of white dahlias or whatever those potted plants were on 1 yr Fuku Anniversary Sunday 3.11.2012. It was broadcast live on CNN show, Japan time.

For one thing, Buddhists do NOT authorize nor condone nor employ in any way the use of flowers to commemorate the dead. Did this mostly western GS threaders know this?

When we buried my father-in-law, one of the nephews' wives attended the Christian rituals. After the services, my wife offered potted plants to all female relatives in attendance to take home and plant or use in whatever way the recipient deemed an appropriate memorial application. The nephew's wife refused and actually physically shrunk back as if she was being offered something venomous. Her husband explained the Buddhist's revulsion with flowers used to commemorate memories and feelings about the dead.

The corrupt pro-nuclear crowd killed these people by setting off the nuke in the trench
easterly adjacent to Japan.

And they continue killing all of us to this day.

Then they rent CNN television time carpeted with WHITE FLOWERING PLANTS to commemorate their Buddhist neighbors and collateral dead?

Yoi chi Shimatsu, a NO-SHOW for either Monday Night's Jeff Rense, 2nd or 3d week in a row. hmmm

The startling news of the evening came from Michael Collins...the radiation reader/alert guy who gets his regular segment every Monday night.

If I heard him correctly, he reported that Soil Samples from below 1 to down 5 feet in the L.A. Cali area was showing horrendous multiples of caesium over background. HORRENDOUS levels. He uttered this statement in context with UC Berkley pre-announced revelations re: WEST COAST RADIATION READINGS up in Vancouver BC, last week which I ALSO didn't get to hear.

Gotta remember to go dig that one up.

Collins also reported he was acquiring an Inspector Rad reader unit shortly and would be releasing radiation readings BY SPECIFIC isotope instanteously read by him and his group, shortly and would be releasing same to Rense.

His website is enviroreporter.com if memory serves.

Didn't know Inspector unit (mfgd in Tennessee USA) could read instaneous by isotopes. One of the reasons the strontium readings haven't been so easily to track is --as Carol Gunderson explained several months ago-- it takes 90 days to get test results back on Strontium, a daughter radionuclide of Caesium.

Remember, strontium is at the bottom of over 90% of the reported diabetes epidemic in this nation...that was reported mucho earlier on this thread, like back in April-ish 2011, shortly after the explosions at Fukushima Dai chi.

<p>Millions of Southern Californians and tourists seek the region’s famous beaches to cool off in the sea breeze and frolic in the surf. Those iconic breezes, however, may be delivering something hotter than the white sands along the Pacific – <em>buckyballs</em>.</p>

<p>According to a new U.C. Davis study, uranium-filled nanospheres are created from the millions of tons of fresh and saltwater used to try to cool down the three molten cores of the stricken reactors. The tiny and tough buckeyballs are shaped like British Association Football soccer balls.</p>
<p>Water hitting the incredibly hot and radioactive primarily uranium-oxide fuel turns it into peroxide. In this goo buckeyballs are formed, loaded with uranium and able to move quickly through water without disintegrating.</p>
<p>High radiation readings in Santa Monica and Los Angeles during a recent 42-day period from late December and to late January strongly suggest that radiation is increasing in the region.</p>
<p>The radiation, detected by this reporter and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency separate from each other using difference procedures, does not appear to be natural in origin. The EPA’s radiation station is high atop an undisclosed building in Los Angeles while this reporter’s detection location is near the West LA border.</p>
<p>Both stations registered over 5.3 times normal though the methods of sampling and detection differed. The videotaped Santa Monica sampling and testing allowed for the detection of alpha and beta radiation while the sensitive EPA instrument detected beta only according the government website.</p>
<p>Scientific studies from the United Kingdom and Europe show that sea water infused with radiation of the sort spewing out of Fukushima can travel inland from the coast up to 300 kilometers. These mobile poisons include cesium-137 and plutonium-239 with a half-life of 24,400 years.</p>
<p>Even with government, University of California and this reporter’s tests showing high radiation in the air, water, food and dairy products in this state, the state and federal government cut off special testing for Fukushima radionuclides over half a year ago.</p>
<p>Southern California is still getting hit by Fukushima radiation at alarmingly high levels that will inevitably increase as the main bulk of polluted Pacific Ocean water reaches North America over the next two years. </p>
<p>Luckily, the area is south of where the jet stream has brought hot rains from across the Pacific and Fukushima over 5,000 miles away, upwind and up-current of the West Coast. Those rains have brought extraordinary amounts of radiation to places like St. Louis with multiple rain events detected and filmed showing incredibly hot rains.</p>

<p>Unluckily, North America is directly downwind of Japan where the government is having 560,000 tons of irradiated rubble incinerated with the ash dumped in Tokyo Bay. The ash that could escape would ALSO be radioactive adding to the witch’s brew of airborne toxins emanating from Japan which has suffered terribly from the meltdowns.</p>
<p>The burning began last October and continues through March 2014. Activists contend that people are getting an unwitting double dose with those along the coast looking at the prospect of a Pacific poisoned with highly mobile and extremely dangerous buckeyballs in the sea mist and breeze.<a

<p>American media coverage of Fukushima’s continuing woes and contamination spreading across Japan and threatening Tokyo’s 30 million residents, while not robust has been adequate. Coverage of contamination in America and Southern California has been praciticaly non-existent. </p>
<p>With nuclear radiation monitoring equipment, this investigation has performed over 1,500 radiation tests in different media throughout four states and in jets miles above the nation. </p>
<p>Those readings, along with the EPA’s, combined with the UC Davis study of buckeyballs and European study of sea spray radiation spread, strongly indicate that Southern California is being exposed to significant amounts of radiation.</p>
<p>Other reports of likely-Fukushima fallout in the Southland exist.</p>
<p>The U.S. Geological Service (USGS) just reported February 21 that Los Angeles had more cesium-137 fallout than any other place in the nation during the opening days of the disaster from March 15 to April 5, 2011. </p>
<p>The amount of Cs-137 detected in precipitation at a monitoring station 20 miles east of downtown was 13 times the limit for the toxin in drinking water according to a report obtained by the <em>EnviroReporter.com</em>.</p>

<p>USGS released another astonishing study February 22 in from measurements, taken at its Bennington National Atmospheric Deposition Program in Vermont confirmed a grim cesium-137 scenario for Southern California. </p>
<p>“Deposition actually decreased as the air mass traveled east to west,” Greg Wetherbee, a chemist with USGS, told the Brattleboro Reformer newspaper before imparting an additional bombshell. </p>
<p>“In the United States, cesium-134 and cesium-137 wet dispersion values were higher than for Chernobyl fallout in part due to the U.S. being further downwind,” Wetherbee told the paper. “With Chernobyl, there was more opportunity for plume dispersion.”</p>
<p>This double whammy of cesium-137, with a half-life of 30 years isn’t even in a uranium-60 buckyball. But they are in the unfathomable spread of goo throughout the Pacific on the second strongest current in the world headed right for us.</p>
<p>In fact, these buckyballs may already be here according to this 11-month investigation, nanospheres turning the Endless Summer into the Endless Bummer.</p>
<p><strong>JAPAN SYNDROME</strong></p>

<p>The March 11, 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake was a magnitude 9.0 temblor on the Richter Scale and centered at an underwater depth of 20 miles about 43 miles east of the Oshika Peninsula of To-hoku. It was the most powerful earthquake to have ever to impact Japan.</p>
<p>The shaker sent waves up to 133 feet high slamming into Japan destroying or damaging over 125,000 buildings in the island nation. The Japanese National Police Agency said that at least 19,166 people were killed or remain missing with over 6,000 injured.</p>
<p>This hit close to home for Glendale resident and entrepreneur Dale Ramicone who is married to a woman born in Japan. Ramicone knows the country well. He watched the earthquake and subsequent tsunami helplessly streaming live on his computer.</p>
<p>“Initially, my focus was on the tsunami and the tragic loss of life on the east coast of Japan,” Ramicone told <em>EnviroReporter.com</em>. “Several days later, the nuclear disaster began to unfold, and I emailed my niece who lives near Tokyo, urging her to evacuate to the west. She and her husband decided to stay where they were.”</p>
<p>Tokyo, a mere 141 miles southwest of Fukushima, has numerous high radiation detections recorded by the government and citizens who post their frightening films on YouTube.</p>
<p>In the last week, radiation was detected at the super-hot level 6.5 microsieverts per hour at Japan’s busiest train station near the Imperial Palace. The blogger Fukushima Diary showed photos of these detections which are 10 times higher than Chernobyl evacuation levels.</p>
<p>“Now, we hear that many Japanese officials were contemplating evacuating all of Tokyo, while at the time, they were telling everyone not to panic and stay put,” laments Ramicone.</p>

<p>While the Japanese government may not know what to do, the owners of the stricken plant, TEPCO, have been wily enough to solve one problem: liability. The company declared last year that once the radiation leaves it Fukushima property, it is no longer their property or problem."</p>


/\ had some trouble copy-pasting the EnviroReporter article - had to use the page source. Normally I would respect their copyright but in cases of Health Emergency I adapt.

i think that "133 foot" tidal wave is an exaggeration. i don't like disaster reports that exaggerate, the real news is dangerous enough. a 50 foot wave with no back (i.e. a tidal wave) is plenty destructive.

"on our blue Planet Mother".

We face a ghastly false dichotomy. Nuke power offers the most dramatic risk, but as alternatives we are offered:

In anotherpost, StillJill understandably urges "saving the children first" as a form of triage, but there is no safe place in which to save them. We must change direction dramatically on several fronts at once. The stakes are huge.

Geiger Counter in an Airplane Radioactivity Reading

I borrowed a Soeks geiger counter from a friend to measure the radiation in the airplane ride from Flint Michigan (layover in Atlanta) and off from Atlanta to San Diego this past Feb. 22, shortly after the Chicago area and San Onfre (near San Diego) nuclear plants both released radioactive steam. I turned it on at 10,000 feet when the pilot announces you can turn electronic devices on. We cruised up to 32.000 feet. Radiation reached approx. 2.85 mcSv/h Microsiverts per hour. Considered Dangerous radiation.

The thing that surprised me more than anything was that when we crossed the Mississippi river (heading west towards San Diego), the radiation actually dropped.

Upon arrival in San Diego, our hotel room background radiation measured approx 0.18 - 0.21 mcSv/h background. Just throwing this out there for chit chat. Normal background radiation I measured with the same device registered approx. 0.06 - 0.12 mcSv/h near Detroit area.

I FF the video 6X.

Least we forget....................


http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima1.html


One problem with the reporting in the mainstream media is that it failed to convey just how massive and strong the containment structures really were, as seen in this classified photo. (http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/reference.jpg) A hydrogen explosion would only blow the sheet metal off the steel framed roof if it even did that, at Three Mile Island the hydrogen ignition did nothing at all. It just scared employees. Another thing the reporting failed to convey is the gravity of the disaster. Compare the containment diagram (http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/containment.jpg) to the remains of reactor 3. It is painfully obvious that many tons of highly radioactive plutonium in the containment pools is nowhere to be found, the entire floor they were on is completly gone. We are getting lied to.
That was a LOT more than a hydrogen blast, and as a result there are thousands of pounds of plutonium scattered everywhere. TEPCO was ridiculed for initially stating that the radiation from the facility was "immeasurable". I think they at first told the truth. Now they have this story about the Fukushima 50. Is it in fact a "wag the dog"? No one could be there and live. Why is remote controlled heavy equipment doing the cleanup? (http://www.pcworld.com/article/224811/fukushima_daiichi_workers_clear_debris_by_remote_c ontrol.html) The official story is hydrogen blasts, not nukes, so the story line has to at least be within the far outer limits of what a hydrogen blast could actually accomplish; not missing reactors and entire fuel pools blown away.
