Fukushima reactor heats up again
[link to www.abc.net.au]

(snip)

Operator TEPCO insists there has been no nuclear reaction and that the reactor can be controlled.

Responding to the increase, the operator began injecting 15 tonnes of water an hour into the reactor in a bid to get the temperature down.

TEPCO says it has not detected any xenon gas, which is created when a nuclear reaction has been triggered.

Fukushima No. 2 reactor nears 94 C, thermometer likely faulty: TEPCO
[link to mdn.mainichi.jp]

(snip)

While concerns are mounting that the reactor may be reheating, TEPCO said it was likely the thermometer was malfunctioning. The device in question had fluctuated between 75 C and 90 C within a short time, while readings from two other thermometers also at the bottom of the reactor vessel have remained around 35 C.

Earlier in the morning, nuclear disaster minister Goshi Hosono said at a parliament budget committee, "The device's movements are perplexing. At this stage, however, it is not necessary to change the judgment that (the reactor is) in a state of cold shutdown."

Japan: Is the Fukushima No. 2 reactor reheating?

In September 2002, TEPCO admitted that it “may have failed to accurately report cracks at its nuclear reactors in the late 1980s and 1990s” and the then-president and vice-president subsequently quit.

The BBC also reported that TEPCO conceded that information had been falsified on over 200 occasions between 1977 and 2002.

But the major concern is that the Japanese government has been turning a blind eye to these goings on. University of Southern California Engineering Professor, Najmedin Meshkati, told PBS: “In one case, they [the government] gave the whistleblower’s name to the utility company. That tells you about culture of regulatory oversight.”

Japan’s government has threatened to withhold a Y1,000bn ($12.9bn) financial rescue of Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), owner of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, unless the struggling utility allows itself to be nationalised.

In the clearest indication of the government’s intentions to date, Yukio Edano, the minister responsible for energy policy, told Tepco’s president that the company would have to cede ownership to the state in return for enough new capital to ward off insolvency.

Regulators OK Ohi reactor stress test results

Japan's nuclear safety agency has approved the results of stress tests on 2 reactors at a nuclear power plant in central Japan.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency made the evaluation in its report on the No.3 and No.4 reactors at the Ohi nuclear plant in Ohi Town, Fukui Prefecture after a panel of experts met on Wednesday.

The report says the tests on the reactors were conducted appropriately and measures for earthquakes and tsunami are in place at the plant.

A disaster preparedness drill has been held at the Tomari nuclear power plant in Japan's northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido.

The drill, held by Hokkaido's prefectural government on Monday, assumed a major nuclear accident with a possible leak of radioactive substances. About 1,000 officials from Hokkaido and 4 towns and villages around the nuclear plant took part.

If a cable was cut why would it increase in small increments over many days? Why wouldn't it quit working altogether? If it was intermittent the reading would go up and down with the current received.

I think they are full of it. We will know sooner or later.

Arnie is saying the cesium in the pollen in the cedar buds will cause background radiation to rise to up to 100 times that of tokyo when it starts blowing around.

Thay are allowing the incineration of radioactive debris as long as the ash is below 4000 disintegrations..

They are mixing clean material with the highly radioactive debris when they burn so the concentrations stay below the 4000d limit.

Instead of keeping it concentrated and dealing with that, they are creating tons of additional radioactive material which must be disposed of in a much larger area.

We already know it is being dumped in Tokyo Bay and the river, as well as being buried in landfills in prefectures all over Japan. Cesium now being found in Tokyo Bay ~b

Most of the incinerators in Japan do not use the modern electrostatic filters to trap emissions. The contamination is getting into the air, air levels rising.

One of the MEXT charts I posted earlier shows an extreme jump in cesium emissions on the 11th~b

Iodine 133 -gone in 2 days- major contributer to thyroid problems in children. Not measured because it was gone so fast.

Scientist was appalled by his findings.

Xenon and Krypton cloud over US was 40,000 times higher than normal. Can't imagine what it was in Fuku.

Xenon becomes cesium, Krypton becomes strontium. The reason they look for cesium above the other emissions- gives off gamma. Others harder to detect.. alpha.

Touched on the fact that people unknowingly evacuated into higher emission plume areas than they had left because the .go v did not inform the public. SPEEDI was not activated.... Which we already knew. Those people(schools, hospitals, residents) got hosed ~b

Dr. Caldicott(Pediatrician) said not taking bioptic samples of the lumps in the thyroids of children affected was irresponsible medicine.

Arnie criticized the Frontline article.

More on interview...

Kondo, a longtime advocate of atomic technology as clean energy, acknowledged the design of Fukushima Dai-ichi had been faulty.

It failed in crucial "venting," to release pressure and prevent explosions, spreading radiation into the environment in what Kondo likened to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

Kondo had erroneously expected problems at a Japan plant to be like the Three Mile Island accident, where radiation leakage was limited.

"That was our biggest mistake," he said.

Fukushima at increased earthquake risk
[link to samidexson.posterous.com]

(snip)

Seismic risk at the Fukushima nuclear plant increased after the magnitude 9 earthquake that hit Japan last March, scientists report. The new study, which uses data from over 6,000 earthquakes, shows the 11 March tremor caused a seismic fault close to the nuclear plant to reactivate. The results are now published in Solid Earth, an open-access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

The number of earthquakes in Iwaki increased greatly after the March earthquake. The movements in the Earth's crust induced by the event caused variations in the seismic pressure or stress of nearby faults. Around Iwaki, Japan's seismic network recorded over 24,000 tremors from 11 March 2011 to 27 October 2011, up from under 1,300 detected quakes in the nine years before, the scientists report.

While the scientists can't predict when an earthquake in Fukushima Daiichi will occur, they state that the ascending fluids observed in the area indicate that such an event is likely to occur in the near future. They warn that more attention should be paid to the site's ability to withstand strong earthquakes, and reduce the risk of another nuclear disaster.
