Forest near Fukushima nuclear plant turning into high-radiation jungle
[link to mainichi.jp]

[snip]

Radiation readings near the saplings struggling to get sunlight were a little over 40 microsieverts per hour. After just one day in the area, a person would be exposed to more than the government's designated yearly limit of 1 millisievert.

Facing the mountain, Akimoto lowered his head as he spoke to the saplings.

"I'm sorry that the readings are so high. I'm sorry that I can't do anything."

Tourist numbers recover to 2nd high in July
The number of foreign travelers to Japan in July has hit the second highest monthly figure after July 2010.

The Japan National Tourism Organization says an estimated 845,300 tourists and business travelers visited the country last month.

Chinese visitors hit a record 203,800, due partly to a series of arrivals of big passenger boats from China. This is the first time over 200,000 Chinese have visited in a month.

Travelers from Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam rose to all-time highs for July.

Greenpeace urges 3 EU nations to shut 12 nuclear reactors immediately
International environmentalist group Greenpeace has urged three nations in the European Union to shut down 12 nuclear reactors immediately on the grounds that EU tests to assess the safety of reactors have overlooked their flaws.

The 12 reactors are in the Belgian locations of Doel and Tihange, in the British location of Wylfa and in the French locations of Fessenheim and Gravelines, according to a report released by Greenpeace.

The earth environment has never before been exposed to a massive release of plutoniumPU.

We are in uncharted territory.

All we have are what scientists have told us concerning the toxicity and killing MO of plutonium contamination up till now.

The good news is that it is the kind of killing that TPTB can cover up; kind of, sort of, maybe; if they try hard enough.

Even if the spontaneous abortion rate; birth defect rate; etc reach 10% in the Japanese population, if they have in place a system to quietly and quickly eliminate this portion of the population, then the population might still be able to maintain or grow.

It reminds me of the garden in Japan where a large portion of the plants die due to a central radiation source, so that the few that survive may be studied.

Nuclear veterans win access to records that ‘didn’t exist’
[link to www.scotsman.com]

[snip]

A SCOTTISH veteran of 1950s nuclear tests has won a legal victory to force the Ministry of Defence to release radiation exposure records.
David Whyte witnessed five nuclear blasts in the Pacific and says the radiation robbed him of the chance of ever starting a family.
As well as becoming sterile, the 75-year-old from Kirkcaldy, Fife, has been plagued by other health problems, which he attributes to exposure to radiation.

Mr Whyte was never further than 10 to 15 miles from the blasts.
He said: “You felt the blast coming up. You could feel the heat going straight through you and then a blinding flash. You could see palm trees bending, it was rushing towards you.”



“When the blast went off you could see the bones in your hands. It was just a red glow.”

Nuclear Regulatory Commission may study power plant health risks
[link to www.latimes.com]

[snip]

Now, in response to growing concerns that using uranium in the production of electrical energy may be dangerous even without accidents, the NRC is trying to decide if it should launch one of the largest epidemiological studies ever conducted to determine if it is a health risk to live near a nuclear facility — such as the San Onofre plant in north San Diego County.

Another motivation for wanting to revisit the issue is that recent epidemiological studies in Germany and France found that children living near certain nuclear reactors were twice as likely to develop leukemia.

In the United States, about 1 million people live within five miles of operating nuclear plants, and more than 45 million live within 30 miles, nuclear regulatory officials said.

Over 30 percent of 109 major Japanese companies polled by Kyodo News believe that renewable energy will provide a viable alternative to nuclear power, the results showed Saturday.

Only three companies said there will be no replacement of nuclear power, indicating there is a growing view in business circles that Japan will be able to minimize its reliance on nuclear energy in the future.
Asked what will replace nuclear power, 35 companies cited renewable energy such as solar and wind power, while 10 firms said thermal power.

Private firm being hired to run Neb. nuke plant
A Nebraska utility has decided to hire out-of-state experts to run the troubled nuclear power plant near Omaha.

Omaha Public Power District directors voted Thursday to contract with Exelon Generation LLC to run the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station, which has been under close scrutiny by regulators. Exelon Generation is owned by Chicago-based Exelon Corp., and operates 17 reactors at 10 nuclear power plants in Illinois, Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Fort Calhoun was initially shut down for routine refueling maintenance in April 2011, but flooding along the Missouri River and safety violations forced it to remain offline. The violations included a small electrical fire in June 2011, the failure of a key electrical part during a 2010 test and deficiencies in flood planning that were discovered a year before last summer's extensive floods.

IAEA sees significant nuclear safety progress since Fukushima
VIENNA — Important progress has been made toward strengthening global nuclear safety after Japan’s Fukushima accident last year, according to the United Nations atomic watchdog.

The International Atomic Energy Agency made the assessment in a report prepared for next month’s annual meeting of IAEA member states, which endorsed the safety plan by consensus last September despite criticism that it did not go far enough.

“Since the adoption of the IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety, significant progress has been made in several key areas,” the Vienna-based agency said.

These included “improvements in emergency preparedness and response capabilities,” it added in the nine-page document posted on its website.

Environment minister Goshi Hosono, who is also the minister in charge of the nuclear crisis, said 12 sites will be built in Futaba (two), Okuma (nine) and Naraha (one), Fuji TV reported. Speaking at a meeting of municipal officials, Hosono said the government plans to conduct geological surveys to establish the suitability of the 12 sites for the storage of radioactive materials.

Fault ruptures confirmed near Japan Trench
Japanese scientists say they have found evidence of displacement of the tectonic plates caused by the March 11th earthquake last year.

A team from the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology conducted an acoustic wave study last year along the Japan Trench about 250 kilometers off the coast of Miyagi Prefecture. The study assessed the seabed structure to a depth of several kilometers.

The findings showed at least 2 displacements near the trench axis where the Pacific plate begins to sink below the plate underneath northeastern Japan.

The Modern World of Nuclear Generated Electricity

Nuclear Electric Production Is Already Declining

According to BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy, the highest year of nuclear electric production was 2006.

There are really two trends taking place, however.

1. The countries that adopted nuclear first, that is the United States, Europe, Japan, and Russia, have been experiencing flat to declining nuclear electricity production. The countries with actual declines in generation are Japan and some of the countries in Europe outside of France.

2. The countries that began adopting nuclear later, particularly the developing countries, are continuing to show growth. China and India in particular are adding nuclear production.
