High levels of cesium found at former nuclear lab outside L.A.
[link to mdn.mainichi.jp]

[snip]

The data, provided to local residents in February as an interim report by the Environmental Protection Agency, which is examining the extent of contamination in the area, show that radioactive cesium measured up to about 7,300 becquerels per kilogram of soil, or nearly 1,000 times the benchmark used by the agency.

The area was decontaminated after the nuclear accident, and the U.S. Department of Energy, which was dealing with research there, declared in the 1980s that the land could now be used as farmland or for residential purposes.

The decision to conduct a detailed study was made in December 2010 after strong demands were lodged by local residents who have expressed health concerns for a long time.

The lab has also been known for its sloppy management of hazardous materials, having incinerated radioactive waste in an open yard at the site for two decades.

Fukushima Could Have Been Prevented
[link to www.nytimes.com]

[snip]

Yet, despite Japan’s history of tsunamis, the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, Japan’s nuclear regulator, did not apply those standards. It failed to review studies of tsunami risks performed by the plant’s owner, Tokyo Electric Power, known as Tepco. It also failed to ensure the development of tsunami-modeling tools compliant with international standards.

Tepco was also negligent. It knew of geological evidence that the region surrounding the plant had been periodically flooded about once every thousand years. In 2008, it performed computer simulations suggesting that a repeat of the devastating earthquake of 869 would lead to a tsunami that would inundate the plant. Yet it did not adequately follow up on either of these leads.

March 11, One Year On: Radioactive Pollen?
[link to blogs.wsj.com]

[snip]

The bottom line, according to the government: This year’s radioactive pollen won’t be hazardous to health. Although the survey did find some extremely high levels – especially from sugi in the town of Namie in Fukushima, inside the no-go zone – the Forestry Agency concluded that by the time the pollen got through the noses of the populace, the level of exposure would be very low.

If all the pollen floating through this year’s hay-fever season was contaminated at the peak level found, a person’s accumulated exposure from that would still only be 0.000553 millisieverts – about one-hundredth the level of a chest X-ray, the government found.

Just to be sure, a coalition of scientists called the Japan Geoscience Union is conducting its own measurements of pollen count and radiation levels, as the season progresses.

The government’s conclusion? “If you’re concerned, wear a mask,” says Mr. Yamaguchi.

Yeah. Small amount. No worries. A little here, a little there...

Compiled meeting records show Kan team feared worst, kept mum
[link to www.japantimes.co.jp]

[snip]

The summary suggests the government, from the beginning of the accident, had in mind the worst case scenario at the plant but was reluctant to actively disclose information to the public.

It took months for the government to officially acknowledge that meltdowns had occurred in three of the reactors. The government has also stirred controversy for replacing a spokesman of the Nuclear Industrial and Safety Agency after he touched on the meltdown possibility at a news conference March 12.

One year on, Chiba Prefecture faces mountain of problems including incinerated ash
[link to mdn.mainichi.jp]

[snip]

While many cities were reluctant to implement measures against radiation contamination, parents and others rose to the occasion. A group of housewives and other residents in Kashiwa collected over 10,000 signatures and delivered them to Mayor Hiroyasu Akiyama. These cities came under criticism, changed course and started taking measures including decontaminating day-care centers and kindergartens and extending subsidies for the decontamination drive.

While the prefectural government is taking the initiative in trying to resolve the incinerated ash issue, local governments involved are having trouble reconciling with one another, leaving the issue unresolved.

HAZMAT in Ireland on Friday, 09 March, 2012 at 04:24 (04:24 AM) UTC.
[link to hisz.rsoe.hu]
We have to be ready to respond.” The incident, triggered by the impact of an earthquake and tsunami, showed the need for nuclear authorities worldwide to re-evaluate their safety procedures, said the institute’s chief executive, Dr Ann McGarry. There was “no room for complacency within the international nuclear industry”. “A nuclear accident anywhere has potential to be a nuclear accident everywhere.” The radioactive particles that reached Ireland were similar to those arriving as nuclear fallout here after the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster in 1986, according to data from the institute. The monitoring stations detected radioactive Iodine-131 and two forms of radioactive Caesium, Cs-137 and Cs-134.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12229994




This is what many people don't understand. The lesson of Fukushima is that we are all of us, every person on the planet, vulnerable to these events. There is no place to hide...

Our future is in the hands of incompetent, lying bastards.

what are your thoughts on the lack of coverage, and can you enlighted us as to the connection to japanese culture and government?

how soon after the tsunami did you become aware of the dangers of the plant, and what was your first response, and you line of thinking? i know we spoke in the french forum on facebook first, before the development of our own blogs

1.I would like to start a movement to make a government approve nuclear asylum. (Not for me. For people to evacuate after me.)
2.I would like to raise fund to support evacuating Japanese.


in light of the new photos from NHK, do you think that anyone following the story is surprised?

lets talk about the events regarding exposions and corium and plasma beams


Thyroid screenings detect relatively high exposure
Experts have detected radioactive iodine in the thyroid glands of 80 percent of the people who used to live near the Fukushima nuclear plant. Five of them had dosages of more than 50 millisieverts.

The scientists at Hirosaki University in Aomori Prefecture conducted checkups last April of 65 people who were living near the Fukushima plant at the time of the nuclear accident. They found radioactive iodine in the thyroid glands of 50 of them.

New report from NIRS [link to www.nirs.org]

way less than 50%



Health at a Glance in the Post-Earthquake Japan
[link to www.nirs.org]



-The explosion in Unit 3, which was very likely a small nuclear explosion, is
almost certainly responsible for the distribution highly radioactive fuel rod fragments on the site, and
apparently more than 1/2 mile from the site. Unlike Chernobyl which is often dismissed as a lesser design,
the Fukushima Daiichi reactors, and many others in Japan, are of US design and construction.

-Another unique factor of a radiological disaster: impacts of the past and present are dwarfed by the
impacts that lie ahead, in the future. It is important to add: non-human life (plants,
animals, fungi, viruses and bacteria) will also suffer mutation, disease and death.

-The level "up to 20 mSv" is not safe, as will be discussed below. These zones are less protective than
those established for the area around Chernobyl, which by contrast are:
1-5 mSv - zone of control
5-20 mSv - zone of limited occupancy
20-50 mSv - occupancy prohibited (no permanent residence)
> 50mSv - restricted zone
Clearly the Soviet / Ukrainian governments placed a limit on unrestricted occupancy near Chernobyl that
is four times more protective than the plan offered by the Japanese government.

-The radioactivity expelled from the Fukushima Daiichi reactors ranks as one of the largest public health
emergencies in the history of the world. This tragedy is only beginning; like the other major radiological
releases*6 there will be no "end" insofar as contamination will persist for hundreds of years at dangerous
levels. Efforts are being made, and will continue, to reduce the amount of radiation that people are
exposed to, but sadly these are not good enough.

-In broad-brush, none of these
conclusions are controversial among radiation researchers:

1. There is no "safe" dose of radiation -- every exposure has the risk of adverse health outcomes,
including fatal cancer; all life-forms are impacted, not only our species;
2. The outcome from radiation most studied is cancer -- but it is not the only health impact;
3. Children are most vulnerable to harm from radiation due to smaller body mass and rapid cell
division; and girls are more impacted than boys;
4. Women are 50 percent more vulnerable to harm from a given level of exposure compared to men
(this may be due to greater mass of radiosensitive reproductive tissue in females);
5. Some people are born with a gene that makes them more vulnerable to radiation harm;
6. Internal exposure results from breathing contaminated air, drinking contaminated water or eating
contaminated food and this results in higher levels (and generally longer exposure) to tissue than
purely external doses like X-rays;
7. Current methods of calculating radiation doses do not account for the difference of internal and
external exposure, or gender; sometimes age and body mass are factored, but usually not when
reporting an ambient radiation level.

-We know the radioactivity from Japan has "gone
global" since the radioactive air masses circled the Northern Hemisphere repeatedly. We cannot reliably
know what the consequences over time will be; we will hear many estimates in the years to come, and
most of these estimates will not agree with each other. Barring change, most will under-report the
consequences for women and for children since: the regulation of radiation and nuclear activity
(worldwide) ignores the disproportionately greater harm to both women and children

-None of this is as important as the simple fact is that children in parts of Japan, right now, are sleeping,
eating, playing and going to school in places highly contaminated.
Further, the Japanese government has
affirmed that people, including children, can stay in areas where readings of radiation monitors project an
annual dose of 20 mSv*8, a level 20 times higher doses regulators "allow" an adult in the general public
receive in a year from nuclear energy operations. The dose to the children will be more than that: the
child's body is smaller, and the 1 mSv is based on external radiation exposure, while the children in Japan
(and adults too) are inhaling and ingesting radioactivity, as people in Ukraine and Belarus (and people
across Europe) did during and after the Chernobyl disaster. Children, and their communities, living in
contaminated areas will get doses that radiation regulators will not be fully assess because there is no easy
way to track internalized radioactivity

As for the "people that know what is going on", we are seeing through the transcripts from March that much more was known than reported, and estimates are still being used to make conclusions. Bad data in will put bad data out. Kind of like your elephant reference, you need all the pieces of the puzzle to draw a logical conclusion. I still believe it will take many years till we see the true outcome of all of this. Hindsight 20/20

167 Workers Have Hit Their Radiation Exposure Maximum

March 6th, 2012 | Add a Comment

167 workers have hit their maximum exposure level of 100 mSv and can no longer work at the plant. Long time workers at the plant are predicting a worker shortage will become a problem in the near future. Discovery News is also seeing such a trend. Industry workers are reluctant to go work over at Fukushima as it could use up all of their potential exposure and cause them to then be unable to work. TEPCO could run into major staffing problems if industry workers with the needed skills have all reached their limits or refuse to work at the plant under the current conditions.

@ Southern OR,

this types of Surveys are not cheap,
in fact they are really expensive,
and the big Dilemma starts with that,
only a rich Company can pay for it,
or the Governmento,
this will reduce imo. the Credibility of a Survey from the start on!

But i can tell you that many People here in Japan are very concerned about the Accident, they lost their trust for the Government and they want to see the Plants off as soon as possible!

I meet twice a Month with a PTA Group so i can tell you what they are thinking, they are average Japanese and have Children!

TEPCO’S Road Map Includes Hints At Reactor Damage

February 29th, 2012 | Add a Comment

---snip---

The illustration below shows where TEPCO assumes leak paths are. They think the torus itself leaks and show the concrete wall between the suppression chamber area and the lower levels of the turbine building. If that area indeed is only concrete wall between the two buildings it would be the weaker point than sections of the suppression chamber buried underground. A wall between two building also is likely to have passages for cables and pipes, creating built in leak paths. So TEPCO assumes the suppression chamber to turbine building as a leak route.

As a mother, this has been my primary concern. I can't imagine how a parent can make good decisions with the information that is available. So much is contradictory. I know it's not A - OK, and I also know it's not what we call an immediate death sentence. My fear is for the long term. I guess we will all learn together.

@ Southern OR,

we need to reduce the Harm
and we need to change the Things
we can change and we need to accept
the Things we can't change!

The Dangers from Contamination
need to be the main Reason to change
other harmful Things like a X-Ray
or the Overuse of Fertilizer,
Otaku Lifestyle and Fast Food because
this are the Things we can change,
we can't change our and Tepco's past!

Pure bullshit.


If you can't face the reality, that's your fucking problem.
The children are continuing to be exposed because Tepco, the jap .gov and you refuse to consider their safety and health above the need for the appearance of normalcy and safety.

You have shown your true colors and I despise you for being an apologist for these monsters.

Get the fuck off my thread.
