Tokyo, July 2: Experts at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have reportedly managed to decrease the temperature of the pool at its reactor No 3, stopping the evaporation of radioactive water.


According to information provided by Tokyo Electric Power Cooperation (TEPCO), the temperature has been decreased to 40 C, Focus News quoted a report by the ITAR-TASS news agency, as saying.

Fukushima to disarmament

Any country that can enrich uranium to fuel nuclear reactors has everything it needs to enrich uranium further, to weapons-grade strength. In a nuclear reactor, 1-2 per cent of the uranium fuel is inevitably converted to plutonium. This can be separated through chemical processing and used to build a bomb, as Israel, India, and North Korea did — and as many fear that Iran is seeking to do. Currently, there is no restriction on any country building a uranium-enrichment plant or reprocessing spent nuclear fuel to extract plutonium. As we have seen, safeguards alone are not up to the job. We will not prevent further proliferation of nuclear weapons and their eventual use, much less achieve a world free of nuclear weapons, without strict international control of all uranium enrichment, and without banning the separation of plutonium from spent fuel.

That which cannot be controlled must be prevented. Today, that means preventing the threat of climate change and eradicating nuclear weapons. But we cannot afford efforts to address one challenge that end up aggravating the other. Attempting to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions through nuclear energy, thereby fueling the dangers of the ultimate global incendiary — nuclear war — could be the most tragic of all miscalculations.

This discussion gets very interesting around the 7:30 mark. Essentially, there is a guest on the Rense show, claiming that the results of exposure to Fukushima Plutonium plumes in the Jet Stream, will have a larger effect on North Americans and Europeans, than on Africans and Hispanics.

He claims that both Geographic and Demographic conditions are the basis, as:

a) there is less exposure to the Southern Hemisphere
b) the peoples within these regions tend to have larger families
c) the rate of birth defects within the scope of the number of births, will, through attrition, give a clear advantage to the peoples within these regions

My apologies if this information has been posted or highlighted. I, personally, had not heard it or recognized it.

Radioactive substances detected in 10 Japanese children near nuclear plant.

The discovery, in Fukushima city, has raised concerns that residents have been exposed internally to radiation from the plant, 60 kilometres away at the coastline.

Tests were conducted in May on the 10 children, aged between six and 16, by a local Japanese group and Acro, a French organisation that measures radioactivity. All 10 tested positive for tiny amounts of caesium-134 and caesium-137, Guardian News & Media reported.

The Japanese government said it was concerned and would examine the results.

The survey found 1.13 becquerels of caesium-134 per litre of urine in an 8-year-old girl — the highest reading for that isotope. The highest reading for caesium-137 (1.30 becquerels) was in a 7-year-old boy.

The discovery came days after health authorities in Fukushima began checking internal radiation doses among all 2 million of the prefecture's residents, a 30-year project that will cost an estimated ¥100 billion ($1.1 billion).

French nuclear power lobbyists used Fukushima smear campaign to promote own businesses

The color-print, A-4 size brochures, later to be called the "Fukushima Files," were handed out by lobbyists from France's nuclear power giant Areva SA in early April.

The 33-page brochure underscored that General Electric Co. (GE)'s Mark I containment system was employed at the Fukushima plant, while containing speculation and describing fuel melting in the spent fuel storage pool, which never took place. On its last page, the brochure concluded that Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) apparently had not released most of the information it held.

The tragedy that has befallen Japan should make any sensible person even more wary of Iran’s nuclear ambitions. For years, Iran has attempted to alleviate the world’s fears over its nuclear program by maintaining that any nuclear technology would only be used for civilian power plants.

Experts urge gov't to improve info disclosure on nuclear crisis TOKYO - An academic society of nuclear experts on Monday urged the government and Tokyo Electric Power Co. to promptly improve the disclosure of information on the Fukushima nuclear crisis to ease public anxiety.

Public concern about nuclear power has increased due to the disclosure of "obscure and confusing" information about the crisis at the utility's Fukushima Daiichi power plant following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami disaster, the Atomic Energy Society of Japan said in a statement.

Fukushima municipality leaders criticize TEPCO over nuclear crisis
FUKUSHIMA (Kyodo) -- Local municipalities affected by the ongoing nuclear crisis on Friday criticized the former president of Tokyo Electric Power Co. for stepping down from the post too early and demanded that the company more clearly take responsibility over compensation.

Masataka Shimizu, accompanied by Toshio Nishizawa, who replaced Shimizu as the utility's new president Tuesday, faced the reactions on the second day of their two-day visit to Fukushima Prefecture to offer their apologies to the mayors of 11 crisis-hit municipalities.

Japan: N-crisis hits Fukushima cherry farmers

As the shipping of brand cherries produced in open fields in Fukushima Prefecture reaches its peak, farmers are being hit hard by sharp drops in sales for gift use and the number of visitors to pick-your-own farms. The nuclear crisis in the prefecture is apparently behind the declines, although the cherries are selling as well as usual at retail stores, partly because of campaigns to support farm products from the prefecture.

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
Among my Japanese friends, soul-searching about the future direction of their country is rife. Nor are long-time foreign residents immune. A New Zealander friend confided recently that for the first time in a decade he was contemplating leaving. Father of two toddlers, he felt disillusioned by a system willing to distribute thousands of radiation dosimeters at schools, or to keep removing top soil from every public park in the affected areas, but not ready to question the nuclear industry or the kind of politics that had gotten Japan into its current predicament.

“The Japanese people are good at being patient, but not very good at being angry. Now they are getting very angry,” Murakami said in Barcelona.

Ibaraki residents start monitoring radiation

Residents of a city northeast of Tokyo have started monitoring radiation levels in an effort to protect children from radiation exposure.

The group in Moriya, Ibaraki Prefecture, began the monitoring in a park on Monday. Measurements were taken one meter above the ground.

Moriya is about 200 kilometers from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, but the city has recorded the highest level of radiation among the municipalities in Ibaraki Prefecture.

The group says it will take measurements at 60 locations and put up warning signs where high levels of radioactive substances are detected.

Group member Mitsunobu Oishi says the authorities cannot conduct detailed checks in many places, so the group is taking action to ensure the safety of children.

Seawater restored in 3 1/2 hours in latest mishap


The reactor's temperature was 43.1 degrees as of 8 a.m. Sunday and rose another 5 degrees during the 3 1/2 hours it took to repair the hose, Tepco said.

If it hadn't been fixed, the reactor would have reached boiling point about 22 hours later, the utility said. That would cause all its water to evaporate, exposing the rods and causing another core meltdown.

After the March 11 megaquake and tsunami ravaged the six-reactor plant in Fukushima Prefecture, units 5 and 6, which are based on a safer design, were able to achieve cold shutdown because their Residual Heat Removal Systems survived the waves and were able to be restarted.

A reactor must stay below 100 degrees to be considered in cold shutdown.

On May 29, unit 5 nearly started boiling after a seawater pump broke overnight and its replacement was delayed until daylight.

-this illustrates the tenuous hold that Tepco has on this crisis.
