Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
The Fukushima tragedy should be carefully analyzed because such cataclysms may pose a threat to other countries as well. For example, there’re dozens of reactors in the USA, whose operating life has already exceeded 30 years. And more than 20 of them have the same design as the reactors at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant that were designed by the General Electric Company. The design provided for the possibility of an accident once in a 100 years. However, the reality proves much tougher sometimes, the Editor-In-Chief of the Atomic Strategy Journal Oleg Dvoinikov said in an interview with the Voice of Russia.

"Life shows that every 20 years there’s a big accident, accompanied by a radiation leak, which spreads to other countries. Such are the statistics. Therefore, taking into account the aging of facilities, one can say with absolute certainty that a new tragedy, similar to the one that was mentioned above, may occur in the near future."

Japan's nuclear industry credibility crumbles amid email scandal

Analysts say the scandal reflects panic in Japan's atomic power industry, long coddled by political, corporate and regulatory interests dubbed the "nuclear village" but now facing growing anti-nuclear sentiment as workers battle to end the Fukushima crisis.

"There is growing suspicion that power companies are playing fast and loose with data to support their cause and will go so far as to orchestrate public support," said Jeffrey Kingston, director of Asian studies at Temple University's Japan campus.

"The more the media pulls back the veil, the angrier the public is getting." The e-mail scandal has been daily fodder for mainstream media, often accused of being soft on the industry.

Nuclear accident disclosure

The Atomic Energy Society of Japan, an academic society made up of experts on nuclear power engineering, nuclear reactor physics and radiology, on Monday issued a statement criticizing the government, Tokyo Electric Power Co. and other related institutions for delays and insufficiency in their disclosure of information concerning the accidents at Tepco's Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, which began March 11.

[link to search.japantimes.co.jp]

- it only took them four months to finally say what I've been saying for the same amount of time.

Experts are so slow.

Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
The following point is especially important. The society notes that there is the possibility that the damage to people's health from radiation exposure has increased because the government, Tepco and other related institutions did not properly disclose information on the status of the nuclear accidents and the environmental contamination by radioactive substances.

It says that although they had information that must be disclosed, they have not done so.

An example that surfaced recently is the education and science ministry's failure to immediately disclose the name of a radiation hot spot in Namie, Fukushima Prefecture.

The readings from Eureka, Calif. were very high after the fallout from the hydrogen explosions. You can look it up.

Common sense would indicate anyone in areas with higher readings might be at elevated risk but I am not an expert.

Dispersion patterns were varied and sporatic.

Boise, Idaho had elevated readings as well.

And fla. had high readings. Go figure.

In general, the highest radio-active emissions were in March. The highest dispersion was in March. Jet stream carried it to the east. How much is debatable. The Japanese are just now fessing up to the lies and hiding of information.

That's about it. The reactors are still in meltdown.

Radiation detected in beef from Fukushima

Beef from Fukushima Prefecture has been found to contain levels of radiation that exceed Japan's safety standards.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government announced on Friday that it had detected 2,300 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium in beef from a cow raised in a Minami Souma. The national limit is 500 becquerels per kilogram.

The Tokyo Government says the beef was not made available to consumers.

Japan's Health Ministry says this is the first time that beef has been found with such high levels of radioactivity following the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The ministry has requested 6 prefectures near Fukushima to step up checks on beef.

Tepco to soon inject unit 3 with nitrogen

Tepco has already began injecting hydrogen into reactors 1 and 2.

The injection of nitrogen into the No. 3 unit is part of what is known as "step one," which could be achieved by July 17. Tepco began injecting nitrogen in the No. 1 unit in April. This wasn't possible for unit 3 because excessively high radiation prevented workers from laying the necessary groundwork.

The utility said it can start the injection after connecting hoses to the necessary pipes at the reactor. It found out Friday that the pipes and hoses will be easy to connect and the work should take only a few days.

Tepco also said NISA instructed it to submit a report concerning the nitrogen injection.

The utility plans to achieve a cold shutdown of the reactors after stable cooling is achieved.

[link to search.japantimes.co.jp]

- considering that the reactors have melted through and the corium is in an unknown state I'm not sure how exactly they are going to achieve cold shutdown. Nitrogen injection will cool the vessel but the corium will still be there cooking away.

Millions of jellyfish invade nuclear reactors in Japan and Israel

A nuclear reactor in Japan was forced to shut down due to infiltration of enormous swarms of jellyfish near the power plant.

A similar incident was also reported recently in Israel when millions of jellyfish clogged down the sea-water cooling system of the power plant.

Such massive invasions of the species have raised speculations and scientists are trying to figure out the reason behind such unusual growing trends.
