Study coming on Fukushima evacuation zone

Japanese authorities are to start detailed studies which could lead to a re-assessment of the evacuation measures in Fukushima prefecture.

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) today summarised the overall level of safety at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. It then revealed what it called a conservative analysis of potential effects on people living 20 kilometres from the plant after various loss of coolant scenarios.

Research for extraction of damaged fuel from Fukushima I NPS

The Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has embarked on research for extraction of damaged fuel from units 1-3 of the Fukushima I nuclear power station (NPS). Drawing on knowledge gained from the accident at the Three Mile Island NPS in the United States, the research will take several years and focus on ways to extract the fuel that melted, fell to the reactor bottom and hardened there, after breaking it up.

The fuel rods inside the reactors of units 1-3 are thought to have melted down. Because a visual confirmation has not been made, however, crews do not have thorough knowledge of the pattern of fuel meltdown and the status of solidification at the reactor bottom.

In search of answers at Diablo Canyon

Scientists recently found a new earthquake fault, which, in and of itself, is not a startling revelation in a state known for its abundance of fault lines.

This one — called the Shoreline Fault — has special meaning for Central Coast residents because it’s about a half-mile from the Diablo Canyon Power Plant near Avila Beach.

This is the same nuclear power-generating facility that has been the target of numerous protests and demonstrations over the years, and that is now the subject of a relicensing effort — and that has renewed the vigor of the protests.

Tepco makes little headway in decontaminating water

As of Tuesday, however, the crippled plant still contained 120,770 tons of contaminated water — 96,920 tons in reactor turbine buildings 1 through 4 and 23,850 tons in storage.

Matsumoto said the utility's goal is to have the cleaning system running at 90 percent efficiency next week by creating a new bypass hose that will help the water flow more smoothly.

He said the water is being hindered by sludge accumulating in a carbon steel pipe that is connecting storage tanks holding the decontaminated water.

To solve the problem, Tepco installed a polyvinyl chloride bypass hose Thursday. But Matsumoto said he wasn't making any promises.

- oh yeah. 90% efficiency? Right. We're talking about Tepco, here.

Radioactive contamination tests begin on Chiba rice

As the Fukushima nuclear crisis continues and incidents of radioactive contamination have hit sectors across Japan's agricultural industry, Chiba Prefecture has begun testing this year's rice crops for radioactive substances.

The testing began on Aug. 4 -- a day when relatively high atmospheric radiation levels were detected -- in the town of Tako, which produces both regular and early-harvest rice. Prefectural employees took about 75 early-harvest rice sheaves to collect grain samples. Test results are expected by about Aug. 10.

- So. It just occurred to someone to test the rice?

Documents reveal U.S. plan in mid-1950s to deploy nuke arms in Japan

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The U.S. government sought to promote the peaceful use of atomic energy vis-a-vis Japan in the mid-1950s to pave the way for eventually deploying nuclear weapons in the country by easing the antinuclear sentiment of the Japanese people, according to top-secret U.S. government documents found at the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.

The declassified documents included a letter, dated Nov. 18, 1955, to Reuben Robertson, deputy secretary of defense at that time, from Acting Secretary of State Herbert Hoover Jr., acknowledging that the Joint Chiefs of Staff had "reviewed the requirement for the deployment of nuclear components of atomic weapons to Japan."

The Obama Doctrine and the Dangers of the $185 Billion Increase in US Nuclear War Preparations

But there is a less visible operational side to US nuclear strategies: the first strike doctrine and the administration's commitment that "as long as nuclear weapons exist, we the United States will maintain a[n] ... effective nuclear arsenal." The US is building the nuclear arsenal needed to enforce empire for decades to come. The deal that secured New START ratification committed Obama to "a major modernization effort to revitalize" the nation's genocidal strategic nuclear warheads and its massive arsenal of stockpiled nuclear weapons. The extra $185 billion will pay to expand the nuclear weapons production infrastructure, train a new generation of nuclear weapons designers and technicians, extend the murderous "life" of aging nuclear warheads and replace so-called "old delivery systems."(3)

Korean ferry ban on Japanese irks Tokyo

A South Korean ferry operator’s ban on Japanese passengers on its ferry service to Dokdo has irked Tokyo, aggravating tensions between two neighbors over the set of islands in East Sea.

South Korea has no right to ban Japanese nationals from boarding ships to Dokdo, a Japanese official said Friday.

The latest tension between the two neighboring states surfaced this week when a South Korean ferry operator said it will ban Japanese passengers from boarding its ships in protest against Tokyo’s recent territorial claims.

Japan has for decades laid territorial claims over Dokdo, which it calls Takeshima, worsening lingering resentment here since Tokyo’s 1910-45 brutal colonial rule.

Massive Solar Storm Could Cause Catastrophic Nuclear Threat in US

A severe solar storm could cause global chaos, wrecking satellite communications and would take down the most important power grids in the world for a period of years.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecasts four "extreme" and many "severe" solar emissions which could threaten the planet during the current decade. Nasa has warned that a peak in the sun's magnetic energy cycle and the number of sun spots or flares around 2013 could generate huge radiation levels.

This is a special problem in the United States and especially a severe threat in the eastern United States. Government studies showed that “extreme” solar flare emissions can cause blackouts for weeks, months or even years, in very large areas of the nation.
