Re: *** Fukushima *** and other nuclear-----updates and links
Guys, I am noticing something and I figured someone here would know. At 4:20PM Eastern time, I am looking at the fukushima complex using TEPCO's facility camera. So that's 5:20AM where the cameras are. The sun is out and shining brightly. Is it normal for it to be full daylight at 5:20AM over there? If not, Could this point to tampering with the cameras? I'm so confused. lol

Highest radiation found at Fukushima No.1 reactor
The highest level of radiation to date has been detected inside the No.1 reactor vessel at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Tokyo Electric Power Company said it used endoscopes and dosimeters to examine the interior of the reactor on Tuesday. Internal measurements were made for the first time since the accident in March last year.

The utility detected a record level of 10,300 millisieverts per hour. The measurement was taken 20 centimeters above the surface of a contaminated water puddle in the reactor's suppression chamber. This high level of radiation would be fatal for humans within 50 minutes. No broken parts were identified in the containment vessel during the survey.

1,000 millisieverts per hour was detected about 4 meters above the water surface. The figure is 10 times higher than measured in the No.2 and No.3 reactors.

TEPCO to drop nuclear exports
Tokyo Electric Power Co. is to abandon plans to export its nuclear power plant expertise as it struggles to cope with the Fukushima disaster, according to news reports.

The turnaround by one of the world’s largest utilities would be a blow to Japan’s once-proud policy of promoting its nuclear technology, the Mainichi Shimbun daily said on Thursday.

Tokyo Electric, known as TEPCO, will withdraw from a scheme to supply and run two nuclear reactors at a plant in Vietnam, the paper said.

Hokkaido says 35 meter tsunami possible
Officials from Japan's northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido say an almost 35-meter high tsunami could hit its east coast if a massive earthquake occurs in the Pacific.

The Hokkaido prefectural government revised its forecast sharply upward on Thursday.

Prefectural officials say that a 20-meter or higher tsunami could hit 11 municipalities, mainly in the eastern part of the prefecture.

They say a tsunami higher than 30 meters could hit 3 of the municipalities. They say waves reaching one town could be 34.6 meters high and inundate most of the town's center.

Alarm activated by error at Oi nuke plant, no impact on reactivation
An alarm was erroneously activated Thursday at the Oi nuclear power station in Fukui Prefecture, where one reactor is slated to be reactivated Sunday night, officials of plant operator Kansai Electric Power Co. said.

The alarm sounded for five minutes at around 4 p.m. after a worker in the control room of the plant's Nos. 3 and 4 reactors inadvertently switched off a monitor used to indicate short circuits. Preparatory work to restart the No. 3 unit has not been affected by the incident, the Osaka-based utility said.

TEPCO / KEPCO shareholders vote to keep nuclear power
Shareholders of Japan’s electricity companies voted on Wednesday to stick with nuclear power despite rising public opposition after the world’s worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in March last year.

The votes against abandoning nuclear power at the annual general meetings of utilities including Kansai Electric Power Co and Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco), the company at the centre of last year’s Fukushima disaster, come days before the country’s first reactors are due to come back online.

Kansai executives sat stony faced on a podium while shareholders, including the mayor of Osaka, urged them to ditch nuclear power.

The government on Friday set out three future scenarios for Japan's reliance on nuclear energy of zero, 15 percent and 20 to 25 percent by 2030 as it seeks to decide a new energy policy in August in the wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster.

"I expect a public debate on the issue. Based on that, the government will decide in August on the future energy direction that Japan should take," Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda told a meeting of ministers involved in energy and environmental issues.

3 New Energy Policy Options
The Japanese government has presented three options of future energy policy for public debate, hoping to finalize by August the extent of Japan's reliance on nuclear power.

The government has been reviewing its energy policy in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear accident last year. On Friday, ministers in charge of energy came up with options for the year 2030, together with projections of greenhouse gas emissions and ways to deal with spent nuclear fuel.

The first plan would eliminate nuclear power altogether. Greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by 23 percent from 1990. Spent nuclear fuel would not be reprocessed, but be disposed of directly.

Under the second proposal, nuclear power would generate 15 percent of all electricity, and greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced by 23 percent.

The third proposal calls for nuclear power allocation of 20 to 25 percent. Earth-warming gas emissions would be reduced by 25 percent.

The utility known as TEPCO has been unable to activate a backup cooling system for the pool, officials of the plant operator said later in the day, adding it is unlikely the temperature will rise rapidly.

TEPCO believes a part of power unit of the system's heat exchanger is causing the problem and the company will try to get the system running again on Sunday.

OPINION: Japan's reprocessing program and proliferation in East Asia

By Masa Takubo and Frank von Hippel
PRINCETON/TOKYO, June 27, Kyodo

If the Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant operates as designed for 40 years, it will separate more plutonium than the Soviet Union and the United States together produced for nuclear weapons during their Cold War. If other countries follow Japan's example, the risk of nuclear-weapon proliferation will increase.

Japanese government officials and other reprocessing proponents argue, however, that since Japan is the only non-weapon state allowed to separate plutonium it should not give up this hard-won right and that, if Japan reprocessed the spent fuel of other countries in the region, the danger of proliferation would be reduced.

It is true that, in 1988, the United States gave its "prior consent" for Japan to reprocess spent fuel that had U.S. content or had been irradiated in U.S.-designed reactors, but it gave the European Union and Switzerland the same approval.

Also, Belgium, Germany and Italy had pilot reprocessing plants like Japan. Because of the failure of plutonium breeder reactor programs, however, these countries decided to stop plutonium separation.

Today, only Japan and four weapon states -- China, France, India and Russia -- continue to insist on reprocessing. The U.S. gave up commercial reprocessing permanently in 1982 and recently, Britain too finally decided to abandon reprocessing.

Three urine samples contained more than 10 becquerels of cesium per kilogram, including a case with 17.5 becquerels. Ten becquerels or less of cesium was found in the samples of the other 138, the Yokohama-based Isotope Research Institute said.

The urine samples also contained about an average 64 becquerels of radioactive potassium.
