Fears for safety at Fukushima one year on
[link to www.terradaily.com]

[snip]

To some of the men who earn as little as $100 a day to work inside Japan's Fukushima Daiichi, the plant at the centre of a year-old nuclear disaster is far from safe -- despite the official line.

TEPCO says at least 167 workers are no longer able to work in nuclear plants because their lifetime radiation exposure has topped 100 millisieverts -- the upper limit for workers.



"There are many spots where radiation levels are extremely high," he told AFP.

The man said subcontractors like him were treated like animals.

"(TEPCO) was pushing for sloppy construction as it has been in a hurry to achieve cold shutdown as quickly as possible," he said.

"TEPCO has to maintain this cold shutdown status for years and years to come, but can they make it happen without exposing plant workers to radiation? That's the question."

Discovery of Neptunium-239 in Iitate-mura Finally Published by a Peer-Review Magazine (Nearly One Year after the Discovery)
[link to ex-skf.blogspot.com]

[snip]


A paper by a researcher at Tokyo University about discovery of neptunium-239 and other short-lived nuclides in Iitate-mura seems to have finally been accepted and published by Environmental Pollution, a peer-reviewed scientific magazine. It was made available online on January 20, 2012, and is published in the April 2012 issue of the magazine.

Abstract

Here, we collected environmental samples such as soil, plant species, and water on April 10, 2011, in front of the power plant main gate as well as 35 km away in Iitate village, and observed gamma-rays with a Ge(Li) semiconductor detector. We observed activation products (239Np and 59Fe) and fission products (131I, 134Cs (133Cs), 137Cs, 110mAg (109Ag), 132Te, 132I, 140Ba, 140La, 91Sr, 91Y, 95Zr, and 95Nb). 239Np is the parent nuclide of 239Pu; 59Fe are presumably activation products of 58Fe obtained by corrosion of cooling pipes. The results show that these activation and fission products, diffused within a month of the accident.

5 likely died of starvation in no-entry zone
NHK has learned that at least 5 people probably died of starvation after being stranded in the evacuation zone around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant following the disaster last year.

The earthquake and tsunami that struck eastern Japan in March last year left 1,605 people dead in Fukushima Prefecture.

Local authorities in the area say that at least 5 others found later in the evacuation zone around the Fukushima nuclear plant had starved to death.

US nuclear waste policy has 'completely broken down'.
[link to www.elp.com]

[snip]

March 6, 2012
The Blue Ribbon Commission appointed by US energy secretary Steven Chu in January 2010, to provide comprehensive recommendations for a long-term solution to managing and disposing of the nation's spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste, has released its fnal report.

The commission finds that the Obama administration's decision to dismantle the Yucca Mountain project (a permanent geological waste repository in Nevada) after $15 billion had been spent on it, was 'but the latest indicator of a policy that has been troubled for decades and has now all but completely broken down.'

The strategy outlined by the commission contains three crucial recommendations.

First, employing a consent-based approach to siting future nuclear waste storage and disposal facilities. Hitherto, trying to force such facilities on unwilling states and communities has not worked.

Second, that the responsibility for the nation's nuclear waste management programme be transferred to a new organisation - one that is independent of the Department of Energy and dedicated solely to ensuring the safe storage and ultimate disposal of spent nuclear waste fuel and high-level radioactive waste.

Third, that changing the manner in which fees - about $750 million a year - paid into the Nuclear Waste Fund are treated in the federal budget to ensure they are being set aside and available for use as Congress originally intended.

There is a requirement that the SPEEDI system be implemented for every nuclear plant in the event of release. It only works if it is used...
It was not. People were exposed to the plume needlessly.

This was criminal action by Tepco and controllers.

If they had heeded their own scientists who warned that the tsunami protection was inadequate, the meltdowns wouldn't have happened in the first place. Can't blame that on anyone else.

Tepco and the Japanese government lied to their own people and to the world about what was happening at the plants and continued lying long afterwards. They refused to do follow-up biopsies on children with thyroid lumps.

The shills were out in force denying and ridiculing anyone trying to make sense of it all.

You continue to hit every thread concerning Fuku to put your own little spin on the information.

I'm not convinced that you are not a shill for
