New U.S. Nuclear Waste Policy May Be Illegal: GAO

In January The U.S. Department of Energy adopted a new policy for the storage of nuclear waste, embarking on a plan to build two new interim storage sites and a new permanent storage facility. On Thursday, a General Accounting Office official told Congress this policy may be illegal.

There it is... the smoking gun.
 Quoting: Waterbug

".... Phytoplankton is easily corrupted. Although it's involved with providing well over half the earth's oxygen through the process of photosynthesis, excessive UV rays coming through ozone layer openings do damage them.
So now we have a 2011 report from researchers at the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology which stated that Fukushima's radioactive cessium 137 has contaminated ocean plankton. Plankton is the first food within the marine life food chain.
Professor Takashi Ishimaru, said the plankton were heavily contaminated because sea currents continuously carried contaminated water southward from the nuclear plant. There you have it. Radioactively contaminated plankton.
If it doesn't produce a form of domoic acid from that damage, it goes up the food chain to larger fish and sea mammals. Remember that quote from earlier in this article: "Marine mammals are sentinels of the eco system."..."

wtf if this^^ changes, so does everything

San Onofre to the Public: DROP DEAD!

The bitter battle over two stricken southern California reactors has taken a shocking seismic hit.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has ignored critical questions from two powerful members of Congress just as the Government Accountability Office has cast serious doubt on the emergency planning at the San Onofre nuclear plant.

At a cost of some $770 million, Southern California Edison and its partners installed faulty steam generators at San Onofre Units 2 and 3 that have failed and leaked.

Those reactors have been shut since January 2012 (similar defects doomed Unit 1 in 1992).

IAEA starts review on Japan's efforts to scrap Fukushima reactors

A team of nuclear experts formed by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Monday started its activities in Japan to review the country's ongoing efforts to scrap the crippled reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

It is the first IAEA mission to Japan focusing on decommissioning. The 12-member team will also look into the recent radioactive water leaks and electricity supply disruptions at the plant -- mishaps occurring more than two years after the devastating nuclear accident.

FUKUSHIMA - It's not too late to escape this sweltering heat and plan a skiing holiday to Japan with Nekoma Ski Resort in the Bandai region of Fukushima still in operation till next month. But more on that as soon as we get the elephant out of the room.

Japan's third largest prefecture, Fukushima has been on the receiving end of a fair bit of negative press after the March 2011 Tohoku earthquake resulted in a nuclear fallout. The "F" has since spooked visitors with every picture published making it look like a ghost town straight out of The Walking Dead; and fear of radiation has not only kept tourist away from the affected areas but also Japan in general.

Junichi Sato[....] had a list of reassuring figures on hand to set everybody's mind at ease about radiation levels there. According to Mr Sato, at ALTS it ranges from 0.02-0.04 µSv/hr - way below Japan's Ministry of Environment safety level of 0.23 µSv/hr - and even lower than Tokyo's reading of 0.048 µSv/hr.

To put those numbers into perspective, a booklet published by Japan Tourism Agency states the world average - based on results recorded in major cities around the world like London, New York, Hong Kong, Beijing and Seoul - is 0.099 µSv/hr.

It also states that scientifically, a dose of 0.06 µSv/hr would be metabolised by the body's internal organs and excreted as waste products instead of building up.

In short, tourists are unlikely to return home and find themselves suddenly with X-Men superpowers after a holiday in Japan. And truth be told, the air in Bandai is cooler and crisper than Singapore on any given day.

French activists protest on nuclear fuel to Japan

Dozens of French activists have staged a protest ahead of a nuclear fuel shipment to Japan.

The shipping was halted after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident forced most of Japan's nuclear plants to shutdown.

About 50 activists gathered at the northwestern port of Cherbourg on Monday.

A French energy firm has been producing the MOX fuel, a mixture of plutonium and uranium. The Kansai Electric Power Company ordered it for use at its Takahama nuclear plant in Fukui Prefecture, Central Japan, which is currently off-line.

A cargo ship loaded with the fuel is scheduled to leave the port as early as Wednesday.

Osaka court rejects demand to halt nuclear reactor

A Japanese court has rejected a suit by local residents demanding 2 nuclear power reactors in central Japan be turned off. The court said the reactors are safe.

The No. 3 and 4 reactors at the Ohi nuclear power plant in Fukui Prefecture are the only 2 online in Japan following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Operator Kansai Electric Power Company turned the reactors back on in August last year after government tests deemed them safe.

But 262 residents of Fukui Prefecture and nearby areas filed a suit demanding a court injunction to turn them off, saying they could cause a serious accident.

The plaintiffs said control rods to halt operations would not go into the reactors in time in a strong earthquake simultaneously involving 3 active faults in the region.

TEPCO moves irradiated water to ground tanks

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant has begun moving contaminated water from leaking underground storage pools to tanks above ground.

Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, plans to move most of the contaminated water to tanks above ground after a series of leaks were found in some of the 7 underground storage pools.

On Tuesday, TEPCO began transferring about 20 tons of water per hour from the No. 2 pool to a tank more than 400 meters to the southeast. The No. 2 pool is the first of those where leaks were found.

More than 23,000 tons of contaminated water is scheduled to be transferred by early June.
