Panel projects reliance on nuclear power in 2020 at 0-26%
An advisory panel to the industry minister projected Tuesday that Japan's reliance on nuclear power in proportion to all electricity generated in the country in 2020 would be between zero and 26 percent, panel members said.

Provisional calculations based on the reliance projections show that the change in Japan's carbon dioxide emissions resulting from energy use would be in a range from a 5 percent increase to a 7 percent reduction from the level in 1990.

rad network map shows values 50-60 on jetstream boundary now snaking across USA, I check the rad map several times a day, (sometimes it is completely unavailable), but these numbers are the highest across the map in some time (not just individual background level varying) leading me to think there is more radiation up there now then there has been for awhile, keep an eye on it and take due health precautions.

"Oz has to go nuclear, says Adelaide U scientist
Stop worrying, learn to love nuclear power"

Prominent University of Adelaide climate scientist Professor Barry Brook says it’s inevitable that Australia will embrace nuclear energy in the battle against greenhouse gas emissions.

The director of climate science at the university believes that by the end of the century, Australia will need at least 100 gigawatts of electricity coming from nuclear to replace coal, oil and gas sources.

Professor Brook says that given the inevitability of nuclear energy in this country, the current pro-versus-anti nuclear debate needs instead to focus on what kind of nuclear reactor will best serve our needs. His suggestion is that we should be considering IFR – integral fast reactor – technology.

The House is expected to approve an amendment as early as Tuesday aimed at forcing the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to complete its review of the Department of Energy's application for a permit to use Yucca Mountain as a nuclear waste storage site. The amendment will be approved with the support of both parties, going against the Obama administration's desire to close the site.

Hibakusha oppose restarting Ohi nuclear plant
Survivors of the 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, commonly known as hibakusha, have adopted a resolution to oppose the restarting of the Ohi nuclear power plant on the Sea of Japan coast.

The Japan Confederation of Atomic and Hydrogen Bomb Sufferers Organizations held a regular meeting on Wednesday in Tokyo with some 150 participants.

The resolution points out that the government is yet to set up new regulatory body on safety and that it has not conducted any damage assessments of the plant in the event of a nuclear accident.

No revolving-door appointments in new nuclear body
Japan's main political parties have agreed that appointees to the country's new nuclear regulatory body should not be allowed to return to work at their former ministry or agency.

The ruling Democratic Party is discussing a nuclear control bill with the opposition Liberal Democratic and New Komeito parties.

The parties have already agreed to set up a nuclear regulatory committee that's largely independent of the government, and a nuclear regulatory agency that acts on the committee's orders.

TEPCO resumes cooling of Fukushima fuel pool
The operator of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has resumed cooling of a fuel storage pool at the facility. The work had been suspended due to failure of a water cooling pump.

The pump at the Number 4 reactor building pool stopped working on Monday night after becoming burnt. The pool holds 1,535 spent and unused fuel rods, the most at the plant.

Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, used a backup pump, but on Tuesday, it also broke. The firm fixed the pump on Wednesday, and restarted it at around 6 PM.

TEPCO says the pool's temperature at 11 AM on Wednesday was 40 degrees Celsius, up six degrees from a day before. As of 5 PM, the temperature had risen to 42 degrees.

Ex-NISA head opposed improving nuclear-disaster countermeasures to int'l levels

[link to mainichi.jp]

[snip]

A former director-general of the government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) opposed improving Japan's nuclear disaster countermeasures to meet international levels, and ignored subordinates' warnings in 2006 that disaster-related measures were flawed, internal agency documents obtained by the Mainichi have shown.

If the improvements opposed by then Director-General Kenkichi Hirose had been implemented, local residents near the crippled Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant could have been evacuated more quickly, minimizing their exposure to radiation. The Diet's nuclear accident investigation committee has been checking how and why opinions within the agency failed to be adopted.

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
OPINION: Japan must seize chance to reflect on energy, reform power system

By Tetsuji Ida

Japan's last operating nuclear reactor went offline on May 5 for routine maintenance, leaving the nation without any operating nuclear plants. The shutdown happened to coincide with Children's Day, on which the nation contemplates the happiness and well-being of its children -- the pillars of future generations.

I truly hope that we can make this day as an opportunity to seriously think about the energy issue for the future and the starting point to work toward realizing a new, sustainable energy supply-demand system for the next generation that steers clear of nuclear power as well as global warming resulting from the massive consumption of fossil fuels.

Currently, Japan's power supply system relies on huge nuclear and thermal power plants built in less populated regions, the electricity output of which is delivered to energy-gulping urban areas far away using massive transmission grids.

But the nuclear disaster at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima Daiichi complex, which triggered the current suspension of all operating nuclear plants, revealed exactly the fragility of such a large-scale concentration, or top-down system.

Under this system, when a power station goes out of service such as in an accident, electricity supplies are interrupted in a widespread area. Such a risk is even higher when a large number of power plants are concentrated in the same area, like in the case of Fukushima.

Dock Torn From Japan Tsunami Washes Ashore
NEWPORT, Ore. -- A large derelict dock that washed ashore this week on Agate Beach near Newport had a plaque with Japanese writing is on it, and on Wednesday, officials confirmed it was torn away from Japan by the March 2011 tsunami and floated across the Pacific Ocean to Oregon.

The large, heavy dock is a concrete and metal pontoon that measures 66 feet long, 7 feet high and 19 feet wide. State officials said it "is clearly designed to float."

A metal placard bearing Japanese writing was found attached to the dock that washed ashore early Tuesday morning, a mile north of Newport. The placard was forwarded to the Japanese consulate in Portland for confirmation

The government's Energy and Environment Council, which is devising the country's post-Fukushima crisis energy policy, has compiled a draft interim report that notes the usefulness of nuclear power from the viewpoint of national security and cost, government sources said Thursday.

The draft report notes that while the country should seek to reduce its reliance on nuclear power, "a path toward nuclear power reductions should be realized in a way that would make the country's energy security compatible with diversity" of energy sources.

"Adults at higher risk for developing cancer later in life after childhood exposures

Children that received radiation treatments for childhood cancers have a higher risk of developing breast cancer later in life, even if the radiation dose was low, according to scientists at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncologists, or ASCO in Chicago Illinois.

The new study shows kids who undergo chest radiation for cancer face a much greater risk for breast cancer when they become adults.

Chest radiation is used to treat Hodgkins Lymphoma.

One study found that 30-percent of girls who were treated for this developed breast cancer by the age of 50. That’s compared to 4-percent in the general population."
