Third reactor still planned at North Anna station

Not far from the towering concrete-and-steel domes that enclose North Anna Power Station’s two nuclear reactors, workers  are preparing the way for a third unit.

Today, 10 years since Dominion power filed its initial application for Unit 3 on Lake Anna near Mineral, the project is far from a sure thing, though the company insists it’s still on track.

Opponents, meanwhile, argue that the ballooning cost of new reactors, coupled with ongoing delays in the approval process, low natural gas prices, and the fallout from the Fukushima disaster in Japan, make Unit 3 an unsure bet.

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
Most Americans are unaware that harmful radiation is making its way throughout the world, putting at risk the health of millions, if not billions of individuals. The effects are currently creeping up on most of earth’s inhabitants although they cannot identify the source. According to scientists, they will become lifetime certainties for future generations as well.

One culprit stems from the recent disaster perpetrated at the Fukushima power plant in Japan, from which radioactive plumes are constantly traveling to neighboring shores and are being disbursed through rainfall on the homeland. Other radiation exposures derive from the use of depleted uranium in military munitions that aerosolize into the atmosphere when they explode, nuclear power plant emissions, and bomb test fallout still hovering in the atmosphere.

Americans are also subjected to many forms of aerial chemical attack, that include such contaminants as sulfur dioxide, lead, mercury, the toxic dispersant Corexit deployed by British Petroleum in the Gulf disaster, and chemtrails that contain the elements aluminum and barium.

Chemtrails are part of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) with facilities located around the world in places like Alaska, Norway, Japan, and Russia. According to former Lawrence Livermore Lab geoscientist and whistleblower Leuren Moret, whose works are archived at: [link to DON'T_USE_THIS.com] HAARP was developed as the “next Manhattan Project” during the Cold War for a wide variety of purposes, some of which are very sinister. HAARP includes not only advanced electromagnetic technologies prophesied by the electrical genius Nikola Tesla for use in underground oil exploration and military over-the-horizon radars, but also for darker applications that include mind control, “weather warfare,” and inducing earthquakes around the world. The latter two applications effectively “weaponize” both the earth’s atmosphere and the earth itself.

The Obama family vacation appears to have been cut short, coinciding with 3x Hazmat level radiation readings in Hawaii...MSM running year-old photo of Obama swimming, provided by the WH...and besides a hike to a waterfall and 'possible' beach excursion by his kids, the Obama's appeared to have spent most of their Hawaian vacation indoors. Who the hell goes to Hawaii and doesn't swim in the ocean? People who know whats blowing and floating in from Fukushima, that's who...I know this entire video is based on speculation but at some point you need to decide if you truly believe in coincidence.

Vacation dates according to Reuters (if correct Obama & family left Hawaii 4 days early) Article states: "Before leaving Washington on Friday evening (the 21st), Obama urged Congress to come up with a stopgap measure to spare the U.S. economy the jolt of $600 billion in tax increases and spending cuts economists say would likely derail the economy"

Nuclear fears contaminate sales for Japan farmers

In the aftermath of the disaster, the legal limit for radioactive caesium in Japanese foods was raised in line with international emergency procedures before returning to normal in April last year.

This return to "normal" should have reassured consumers, but the stigma has lingered from temporary bans imposed on beef, milk, mushrooms, vegetables and rice from Fukushima prefecture after they were found to contain levels of radioactive caesium above government safety limits.

---

"A total of 45 countries and areas restricted food imports from Japan following the nuclear plant accident, resulting in declines in shipments," a ministry official said. "Generally, they are easing the curbs except for South Korea."

In the town of Soma, 40 kilometres from the Fukushima Daiichi power plant, locally grown rice is often up to scratch but only locals want to buy it.

Masahiro Saito, a chicken farmer who has seen a 20 percent loss in his turnover, feels less unlucky than his cereal and vegetable-growing neighbours, some of whom have had to pack up for good.

"At the peak of the radiation in March 2011, I recorded 5 becquerels of radioactive caesium per kilogramme on my chickens," said Saito—well below the government limit. Like most of his counterparts, he has raised his animals on American corn, which explains why he and other farmers have suffered less than others in the region.

But the consequences of the nuclear accident are still being felt two years later on on the overall economy, not just agriculture, and on the daily lives of hundreds of thousands of people in the region.

The clean-up around Fukushima is expected to take decades and experts warn that some settlements may have to be abandoned. Anecdotally, the pressures are mounting and stories of people whose livelihoods have dried up abound in the Japanese press.

The Cabinet Office says up until last November 76 people in the region took their own lives in connection with the disaster.

Of the deaths, 21 were linked to financial and livelihood issues and nine to employment issues, the government said.

Survey checks radioactive contamination in the Pacific
In mid-November last year, the U.S. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and the University of Tokyo’s Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute held a symposium in Tokyo titled “Fukushima and the Ocean.” Over two days, around 90 marine researchers from the United States, Japan and so on gathered to discuss the extent of marine radioactive contamination and how this information should be communicated to the general populace.

On the final day, the debate was opened to the public and close to 200 people attended; proof, if any were needed, that these issues are not merely the concern of a few specialist researchers.

The symposium’s roots can be traced back to less than a week after the accident occurred, when Ken Buesseler, senior scientist at WHOI, called on researchers from all over the world to help ascertain radiation levels off the coast of Fukushima and the accident’s impact on marine life.
---

The team surveyed an area 30 to 600 kilometers offshore from the nuclear plant. They took samples of seawater from more than 30 locations, from the ocean surface right down to depths of 2,000 meters. The samples were then analyzed by 16 laboratories in seven countries, including Monaco and Slovakia. The Tokyo symposium was held in the wake of this research.

According to Buesseler, when radioactive debris is released into the sea, it usually gets dispersed far and wide by ocean currents before eventually finding its way to the seabed. This survey showed radiation levels spiking in areas where eddies commonly form due to the complicated interplay of the Kuroshio and Oyashio currents.

One of the participants, Jun Nishikawa, assistant professor of the University of Tokyo’s Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute, says the highest detected cesium-134 and cesium-137 activity was around 3,900 becquerels per cubic meter (bq/m3). This reading was made not in the seas close to the nuclear plant, but in an area of near-shore eddies to the southeast. The research also revealed that concentrations of radioactive cesium isotopes in the surveyed area were 10 to 1,000 times higher than before the accident occurred.

“We still don’t know enough about how cesium isotopes accumulate in the bodies of fish, so further observations will be needed from hereon,” says Buesseler.

Professor Jota Kanda from the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology adds that “fish species absorb cesium in different ways. Even in areas with low concentrations of radioactive material, we are still finding some fish types that manifest higher-than-normal concentrations.”

Kanda, who compiled the results of the two-day symposium, says that when flatfish were exposed to cesium-134 during an experiment, “young fish absorbed high levels quickly, whereas mature fish absorbed it more slowly.”

“The Fukushima accident demanded research above and beyond what any one single nation could undertake,” says Buesseler. “Our survey involves research institutions from several countries and is independent from the Japanese government, so I think it will live up to the expectations of the Japanese people too.”

"...According to the government monitoring, levels of PM2.5 particles were above 700 micrograms per cubic meter on Saturday, and declined by Monday to levels around 350 micrograms - but still way above the World Health Organization's safety levels of 25.
In separate monitoring by the U.S. Embassy, levels peaked Saturday at 886 micrograms - and the air quality was labeled as "beyond index."

all free radicals cause cell damage/disfunction. i can understand the mess created externally is due to the mess we created internally, -so hold no judgement. the blind are leading the blind
humans seem to have chosen 'imagined unnatural' desires over our 'real natural' desires... and so lost touch with senses/instinct/Nature -the biological degradation that ensues leads us to suffer. budha knew this about imagination (im-aging-nation?) -vipassana meditation gives that insight -not that i believe its a solution -only return to our natural design can heal us properly and keep us out of imagining stuff, imo. or as b.marley said -babylon dont bear no fruit...
Natures immortal, -its all coming back (paradise) if we choose to do anything or not... this is a glitch -eventually we will all return too, as things evolve/return to a state of greatness by Natures glory -as thats built into the fabric of space/matter/creation. -that thought keeps me sane.

Like We've Been Saying -- Radiation Is Not A Big Deal
A very big report came out last month with very little fanfare. It concluded what we in nuclear science have been saying for decades – radiation doses less than about 10 rem (0.1 Sv) are no big deal. The linear no-threshold dose hypothesis (LNT) does not apply to doses less than 10 rem (0.1 Sv), which is the region encompassing background levels around the world, and is the region of most importance to nuclear energy, most medical procedures and most areas affected by accidents like Fukushima.

The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) (UNSCEAR 2012) submitted the report that, among other things, states that uncertainties at low doses are such that UNSCEAR “does not recommend multiplying low doses by large numbers of individuals to estimate numbers of radiation-induced health effects within a population exposed to incremental doses at levels equivalent to or below natural background levels.”

Read Disclaimer in my Pre-Posting!

Defining radiation risk
UNSCEAR said that it was not possible to attribute increases in health effects across populations to long term exposure at radiation levels typical of the global average background levels (1-13 mSv per year). 'This is because of the uncertainties associated with the assessment of risks at low doses, the current absence of radiation specific biomarkers for health effects and the insufficient statistial power of epidemiological studies.'

For exposures below 100 mSv UNSCEAR said that a health issue across a population could be put down to radiation exposue on two conditions: that spontaneous occurrence of that issue was low while the radiosensitivity of that issue were very high; and that the number of cases was high enough to overcome 'the inherent statistical uncertainties'.

An example that could fit the definition is the well-known risk of thyroid cancer from accidental releases of iodine-131. The substance is a short-lived isotope produced in operating nuclear reactors and, if released in sufficient quantities during an accident, could be absorbed in the thyroid glands of children and young people and lead to thyroid cancer. This was only major radiation-related health effect of the Chernobyl accident on the public.

<snip>
Matsutaro Shoriki

Japan’s Citizen Kane

A media mogul whose extraordinary life still shapes his country, for good and ill

Dec 22nd 2012 | from the print edition
THE ECONOMIST’S office in Tokyo is in the headquarters of the Yomiuri Shimbun, the world’s biggest-selling newspaper. Every day, as you walk past bowing guards and immaculate receptionists, set back in a corner you pass a bronze statue of an owlish man with a bald head and thick, round-rimmed glasses, poring over a paper. He is Matsutaro Shoriki (pictured), who acquired the paper in its left-wing adolescence in the 1920s, and turned it into a scrappy, sensational pugilist for right-wing politics. The statue is not flattering: with his potato-like head and beakish nose, he seems to be pecking at the newspaper rather than reading it..........
He hit upon another remarkable plan, this time to use nuclear energy as a tool of pro-American leverage. Yet another biographer claims this was a CIA plot—an idea pooh-poohed by other scholars, who believe that Shoriki exploited the Americans at least as much as vice versa. Dwight Eisenhower had recently made his “Atoms for Peace” speech, promoting the spread of nuclear energy to counter the stigma of nuclear weapons. In December 1954 John Jay Hopkins, president of General Dynamics, a pioneering nuclear conglomerate, suggested an “Atomic Marshall Plan” for Japan.

Shoriki pressured Hopkins to travel to Tokyo to deliver the message in person; at the first hint of assent, the Yomiuri splashed the news on its front page. With all the hoopla that had heralded the arrival of Babe Ruth more than 20 years earlier, the paper played up the visit in May 1955. Shoriki used giant screens artfully erected on street corners both to spread the pro-nuclear message and to boost the fledgling NTV’s ratings.

At the same time he and some of his pronuclear cronies in parliament were pulling strings, with results that still resonate. He won a Diet seat on a nuclear-energy platform, then helped form the Liberal Democratic Party. It ruled Japan for almost all of the next 55 years (and is now returning to power). In January 1956, as a cabinet member of the first LDP government, he was appointed president of Japan’s new Atomic Energy Commission. To the surprise and horror of some of the scientists on the commission, his first announcement was that Japan would have a reactor within five years. He never let practicalities get in the way of a story.

This was not quite the end. Ultimately, Japan got its reactors (ironically, the first was British, not American). But Shoriki could not secure his biggest goal, the premiership, and perhaps it was this shortcoming that ultimately racked him with a sense of failure. The end of his life story is told by Yasuko Shibata, the 82-year-old wife of his former right-hand man, who lives in a sumptuous retirement home in Yokohama. She giggles as she recalls how Shoriki once offered her a thick envelope of cash, after her husband had stormed off following one of the two men’s many rows. To her, at least, he was neither a monster nor a patsy. “It doesn’t matter whether you like Shoriki or not, he was not the kind of small guy that the CIA could push around,” she insists........
............
Mrs Shibata tells a story of Shoriki’s final days in 1969 that reveals, like Orson Welles’s “Citizen Kane”, how tortured he was at the end. His own wife had died, and he had moved into a dingy room in Tokyo with his mistress. Lying in her arms and approaching death himself, he heard revellers drinking outside and, in a feverish state, thought it was Shibata threatening to kill him unless he was given the credit he deserved. Shoriki need not have worried about his own legacy. For good or ill, it lingers on.
