there are not many Airborne Radioactive Isotopes left
here in Tokyo, the majority came in the first 10 Days
after 03/11 but now they reached the normal Levels!

2011 i bought a big HEPA-Filter
(because of your Recommendation)
and this is running with a new Mat since 2012.

I hope that someone will test this Mat soon because at the

I watched several different vids.
There is a lot more smoke than merely exhaust.
The intensity of wind laid the smoke down horizontally.
On a calm, windless day, there would have been a large cloud of smoke.
And there is the matter of perspective.
Although the zoomed view and poor video quality helps to minimize the event..
the true size of the area, in close-up, real-view perspective, would have been damning.
But we don't get a true perspective from tepco's cams..
That is no accident.. it is deliberate.

Govt. studying Sea of Japan quake possibilities

A government panel has begun studying how big an earthquake could occur in the Sea of Japan, and what coastal municipalities could do to avoid tsunami damage.

Seismologists and tsunami experts joined Tuesday's meeting organized by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

Massive quakes accompanied by tsunami have occurred in the Sea of Japan off northern through central Japan.

In 1993, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake off southwestern Hokkaido triggered tsunami that devastated Okushiri Island and reached as far as western Japan and South Korea.

Not according to a little-known arm of the U.S. government called the National Nuclear Security Administration. The agency said it is trying to measure radiation of a sort that is usually produced in nature by nuclear decay. Specifically, it is trying to measure gamma rays.

The idea, according to the NNSA, is to get an idea of Washington’s natural, normal output of gamma rays, a potentially harmful form of nuclear radiation. Such knowledge would aid in the response to a situation in which levels of radiation spiked, possibly as the result of a “dirty bomb.”

SYDNEY — A fire broke out at a nuclear research reactor in Sydney, but authorities said the blaze was brought under control and there appeared to be no damage to the reactors.

The fire broke out as the city sweltered through a heatwave which has triggered dozens of bushfires, but the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) said the incident was not linked to the weather conditions.

The state fire service said smoke was detected in an electrical substation at the rear of the Lucas Heights nuclear facility in southern Sydney shortly after 10:30 am (2330 GMT Monday) but the source was yet to be found.

Fire breaks out at Australian nuclear facility

(AFP) – 13 hours ago

SYDNEY — A fire broke out at a nuclear research reactor in Sydney, but authorities said the blaze was brought under control and there appeared to be no damage to the reactors.

The fire broke out as the city sweltered through a heatwave which has triggered dozens of bushfires, but the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) said the incident was not linked to the weather conditions.

The state fire service said smoke was detected in an electrical substation at the rear of the Lucas Heights nuclear facility in southern Sydney shortly after 10:30 am (2330 GMT Monday) but the source was yet to be found.

"There was smoke evident in two rooms, they're doing smoke extraction and then they're cooling," a spokesman told AFP.

"Where there's smoke there's fire, obviously, but that's all the information we have at this stage."

Two fire crews and a hazardous materials unit were on the scene but the spokesman said it did not seem to be serious and there was not thought to be any danger to the reactors themselves.

ANSTO said on-site fire wardens "extinguished what was believed to be a fire in electrical wiring", and that it posed no danger to the facility.

Lucas Heights is home to two reactors, the high flux Australian reactor which began operations in 1958 and is in the process of being decommissioned, and its successor the open pool Australian lightwater, or OPAL, which went live in 2006.

The main OPAL reactor was shut down as a precaution and will remain offline until deemed safe to resume operations, an ANSTO spokesman said.

"The OPAL reactor is shut down and is safe. The issue was dealt with within around one hour, no injuries have been reported, and there is no ongoing issue at the site," he said.

The OPAL reactor does not produce power but is used to produce medical and industrial radioisotopes, irradiate silicon used in semi-conductors, conduct mineral analysis and other scientific research.

Temperatures in Sydney are expected to hit 43 degrees Celsius (109 Fahrenheit) Tuesday -- the third-hottest mark in the city since records began.

"ANSTO is currently undertaking an investigation into the cause of the issue although it is not believed that it was linked to current weather conditions," the spokesman said.

@ Cploerb,
i already know some Studies from France, Belgium and
Germany about the high Concentration of Leukemia and
other Cancer, you don't tell me something i didn't know!

Sadly this Studies do not work in a legal Sense,
they work only for us but cant stand in a Court
otherwise we had switched of this Plants already
in the early Eighties!

But this have nothing to do with the "Technical Aspect"
or are you that prematured and act like a wild Chicken
on Speed?
