U.S. Nuclear Regulator Faces Fresh Scrutiny for Bending Safety Standards
[link to tpmlivewire.talkingpointsmemo.com]

In the wake of Fukushima, story after story has been published about the cozy relationship between Japan's nuclear industry and its regulators: Japanese nuclear regulators extended the use of reactors despite concerns about equipment upkeep and left key safety measures to the initiative of plant operators, as many have reported in the months since.

The NRC is being exposed.

What happens in Japan has wide ranging effects in China. The recent Fukushima nuclear crisis is no exception.

As both Japan and China are aware, there is still a long way to go to address the danger and impact of radiation from the Fukushima meltdown. While China is facing many social, economic and environmental challenges of its own, the Chinese government understands that outside events — such as the Arab Spring revolutions or the nuclear crisis in Japan — could spark instability in Chinese society.

IAEA meeting draws lessons from Japan nuclear disaster
[link to english.peopledaily.com.cn]


The report points out that the tsunami hazard for several nuclear sites was underestimated, adding that "nuclear plant designers and operators should appropriately evaluate and protect against the risks of all natural hazards, and should periodically update those assessments and assessment methodologies."

Different opinions among IAEA member states over specific safety improvement measures have made it difficult for all participants to adopt a common stance. What concrete outcome will emerge from the conference remain to be seen.

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
These are rocky days at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which finds itself under attack from the outside for decisions ranging from new reactor designs to safety issues that have languished for years, including the agency's failure to get serious about fire hazards.

Many issues laid bare since the Fukushima Daiichi disaster are anything but new. Critics have for years railed about regulators' coziness with industry, relative inattention to safety concerns and minimizing of seemingly unlikely events -- the same factors that have brought the Japanese nuclear industry to its knees.

An overhaul of the Japanese nuclear regulatory system has begun. If the U.S. doesn’t take similar action, without a domestic disaster comparable to Fukushima, it’s hard to see how nuclear power can survive here — or to justify why it should.

New York State missed a deadline for ruling on an application for a water quality certificate for the Indian Point nuclear plant, the plant’s owner, Entergy, said on Tuesday in a notification to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The filing raised the possibility that state officials may have lost a tool for blocking a license renewal for the plant’s nuclear reactors.

New York State is seeking to have Entergy build towers at the plant for cooling water to reduce damage to fish and other aquatic life. Entergy is resisting.

Iran is currently the only country with a significant nuclear programme that has not signed the Convention on Nuclear Safety, a treaty that has come back into focus amid the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan.

Iran is ready to build uranium enrichment plants abroad and to advise countries importing nuclear power plants on how to write contracts protecting their rights, Iranian vice president and head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani, said in Vienna Tuesday.

At a press conference during the IAEA's Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Safety, Abbasi-Davani said Iran would work only with countries which were parties to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and that any such cooperation would be exclusively under the supervision of the IAEA.

He declared, through an interpreter, that "all Iran's nuclear activities are under full-scope safeguards and exclusively for peaceful purposes." Iran is widely suspected of pursuing a military nuclear capability and the international community has imposed several rounds of sanctions on Iran for failure to abide by its safeguards obligations under the NPT.

A colourful slideshow of hand-written messages was projected on the front wall of Parliament House to mark the tabling of more than 10,000 signatures calling for the government to reinstate the no-uranium mining policy.

Moorman said the NRC, as part of its investigation to license America’s only reactor now under construction, is reviewing 500 whistle-blower allegations still on file with the agency after construction on the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Watts Bar Nuclear Plant was halted in 1985. TVA in 1996 completed and began operating Unit 1 there, and in 2007 began a five-year, $2.49 billion construction project to complete Unit 2. That reactor now is scheduled to go online in 2012.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission was asked today to avoid the term “recycling” when it writes new licensing rules for reprocessing spent nuclear fuel.

“Calling reprocessing recycling is green-washing at its worst,” said South Carolina Sierra Club chair Susan Corbett. “It’s just a marketing tool.”

[link to chronicle.augusta.com]


As spent fuel from the nation’s 104 commercial nuclear reactors piles up at a rate of 2,000 tons per year—adding to about 70,000 tons now in storage—more and more private firms have expressed interest in reprocessing spent fuel to recover uranium that would be made into new fuel rods.

N-worker's mask left no room for glasses

The Yomiuri Shimbun

Wearing eyeglasses behind his safety mask contributed to a worker at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant receiving more than double the maximum allowed dose of radiation, according to a Tokyo Electric Power Co. investigation.

TEPCO said the man's eyeglasses prevented his protective mask from forming a tight seal against his face, enabling radioactive substances to get in.

The man, in his 30s, was exposed to 678 millisieverts of radiation while working at the plant in the days after the Great East Japan Earthquake. The upper limit for an emergency worker is cumulative exposure of 250 millisieverts.

Another man, in his 40s, who worked at the plant at the same time was exposed to 643 millisieverts.

here is the sad truth about Japan and their history. The entire Island is a Tsunami birthing station. The fact that they had the audacity to build nuclear reactors right on the ocean was like pissing into the wind; it was only a matter of time before it all got wet!

our entire planet has been set up to encourage greed at any cost...and this is exactly what we are seeing - the consequences of that destructive immoral agenda.


"Tsunamis are a frequent occurrence in Japan; approximately 195 events have been recorded.[4] Owing to the immense volumes of water and the high energy involved, tsunamis can devastate coastal regions."
