New rice 10%-20% more expensive
The Yomiuri Shimbun

This year's new rice is 10 percent to 20 percent more expensive on average than last year's crop, it has been learned.

A major reason for the increase is believed to be the efforts of wholesalers to purchase rice free of radioactive substances.

According to a list of new-rice dealings between the Japan Agricultural Cooperatives (JA) and wholesalers for the Sept. 26-Oct. 2 period, the largest price increases were for the Haenuki brand in Yamagata Prefecture and the Kinuhikari brand in Shiga Prefecture.

Both brands jumped 21 percent in price with the former brand selling for 14,500 yen per 60 kilograms and the latter for 14,800 yen.

Sixteen tons and what you get is a nuclear catastrophe. The explosions that rocked the Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant were more powerful than the combustion of hydrogen gas, as claimed by the Tokyo Electric Power Company. The actual cause of the blasts, according to intelligence sources in Washington, was nuclear fission of. warhead cores illegally taken from America's sole nuclear-weapons assembly facility. Evaporation in the cooling pools used for spent fuel rods led to the detonation of stored weapons-grade plutonium and uranium.

The International Criminal Court has sufficient grounds for taking up a case that involves the health of millions of people in Japan, Canada, the United States, Russia, the Koreas, Mongolia, China and possibly the entire Northern Hemisphere. The Fukushima disaster is more than an human-rights charge against a petty dictator, it is a crime against humanity on par with the indictments at the Nuremberg and Tokyo tribunals. Failure to prosecute is complicity.

(snip)



- I have long suspected weapons-grade was at the site. I thought it was being manufactured there and stored there.

The furtive actions and secrecy by Tepco and the Japanese gov't at the beginning of the crisis and since has always tended to predict a possibility of this sort of revelation.

They acted like they had something to hide by restricting access to the site and information about the processes therein.

The employing of Stuxnet is almost a given considering the excuse Tepco gave for the valves. I didn't believe their explanation at the time. Stuxnet is a plausible reason.

I am curious whether MSM will pick up on this. Needs more validation.

Yukio Edano to Become the New Minister in Charge of Organization for Nuclear Disaster Compensation

You cannot get more cynical, for at least a few minutes until the next horror is revealed in Japan.

But for now, Yomiuri Shinbun (10/3/2011) says that Yukio Edano, former Chief Cabinet Secretary and the current Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry (who is seen trying to suppress a laugh in the video I posted) will also become the Minister in charge of the nuclear disaster compensation scheme set up by the government and the nation's electric power companies that operates nuclear power plants to socialize the cost of the accident.

The position has been held by Goshi Hosono, who as the Minister of the Environment has submitted the Ministry's budget that is more than 5 times the size of the last year's, riding high on the decontamination bubble.

Nuclear experts to help Fukushima decontamination

VIENNA — The UN atomic agency IAEA said Tuesday it was sending 12 international experts to Japan on October 7-15 to assist the country with clean-up efforts after the nuclear accident of Fukushima in March.

The experts "will go to several locations in the Fukushima Prefecture and conduct meetings in Tokyo with Japanese officials to provide assistance to Japan in its plans to manage remediation efforts (and) review the country's remediation strategies, plans and work," the IAEA said in a statement.

Irate Fukushima residents want compensation for all nuclear disaster evacuees

The government's Dispute Reconciliation Committee for Nuclear Damage Compensation decided last month to make TEPCO, the operator of the crippled nuclear power plant, compensate those who had evacuated within about a month of the outbreak of the nuclear crisis. The panel, in the meantime, postponed its decision on whether those who had evacuated thereafter would be entitled to compensation, saying the issue would be discussed later.

Our goal is to reduce radiation levels to under 1 millisievert. Those areas with radiation levels between 1 millisievert and 5 millisieverts will naturally be covered," said Goshi Hosono, the state minister in charge of the Fukushima nuclear accident.

According to a preliminary decontamination plan made last month, about 1,778 square kilometers, or 13% of Fukushima Prefecture's total area will have to be cleared. Costs are expected to hit 1.14 trillion yen ($14.9 billion).

Exodus of doctors, nurses adds to Fukushima Pref. woes


Since the start of the crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, hundreds of doctors and nurses have resigned from nearby facilities, according to a survey by an association of Fukushima Prefecture hospitals.

Their departures have resulted in some hospitals in the prefecture suspending nighttime emergency care and other treatment services, the association said.

The survey found that 125 full-time doctors had resigned from 24 hospitals in the prefecture, or 12 percent of all doctors working at those institutions.

Expert hits ministry for lack of promptness in test

Report of long-range plutonium find tardy



The science ministry was tardy when it reported last week for the first time that traces of plutonium fallout were found outside the Fukushima No. 1 power plant's compound through tests conducted in June, a nuclear expert said Monday.

It is not clear what caused the plutonium, a heavy element, to drift so far.

The ministry said it has no plans to expand its checks beyond the survey's current 100-km radius, which means that Tokyo — whose massive population could magnify the consequences of any results — will be excluded.

Although it would be better if the government conducted more soil tests outside that range, it would be very difficult because conducting an analysis of strontium and plutonium takes much longer than it does for cesium, Furukawa said.

Reactor maker warns of possible safety issue at Fermi II

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy is warning that the reactor it built for DTE Energy’s Fermi II nuclear power plant may not shut down properly during an earthquake.

The Pittsburgh Tribune reports that Fermi II is among 35 GE reactors where the company is recommending testing to determine what level of friction would interfere with the insertion of control rods into the reactor core during an earthquake.

The issue is a “low probability event” that became known to the company several months before the March earthquake and radiation leaks at the Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan, Michael Tetuan, a spokesman for GE Hitachi in Wilmington, N.C., said in an e-mail.

U.K. expert says limits on radiation 'unreasonable'


Seiichi Nakamura, a researcher at the Health Research Foundation, in Kyoto, said he agrees that Japan can raise the limits, but stresses his position is not as extreme as Allison's.

"My feeling is that 20 millisieverts a year is already quite high, but it may be OK to raise it a bit more," said Nakamura, who helped research cancer risk in people in Kerala, India, an area of unusually high naturally occurring radiation. "The food standard can be raised closer to the more internationally recognized level of 1,000 becquerels per kilogram."

Allison insists that he has no ties to the nuclear industry.

UT grad student faces trial in Iran, scientists call espionage charges 'ludicrous'

As scientists and academics across the world continue to push for his release, a 29-year-old University of Texas physics graduate student faces trial in his native Iran today on espionage charges.

Omid Kokabee , 29, started attending UT last fall to work on his Ph.D. in optics, the field of physics that studies light.

But when he returned to Iran during the winter break, he was arrested at an airport in Tehran and taken into custody, said John Keto , the graduate adviser for UT's physics department. Kokabee has remained in custody since.

He is accused of leaking Iranian nuclear secrets to the United States, accepting "illegal earnings" and "communicating with a hostile government," according to the American Physical Society, of which Kokabee is a member. The society's Committee on International Freedom of Scientists in August wrote a letter to the Iranian government asking for Kokabee's release.

Keto called the situation "ludicrous" because Kokabee never studied nuclear science. His personal page on UT's website lists him as an experimental laser physicist.

Residents of Japanese town contaminated by Fukushima refuse to return

I don’t plan to come back, ever,” said a middle-aged woman who briefly visited Hirono this week to retrieve belongings from the two-storey home that she and her family fled on March 12, the day after the tsunami that set in motion the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. She paused to take in her abandoned home’s view of the ocean and its now-unkempt garden. “I’ll never feel safe here. I’ll never feel secure.”

The area where the government has lifted its advisory was one of three evacuation zones around the plant. The 20-kilometre radius around Fukushima Daiichi remains a no-go zone for the foreseeable future, as does a heavily contaminated corridor northwest of the plant that was later added to the mandatory evacuation zone. Once home to more than 100,000 people, the areas are expected to be uninhabitable for upward of two decades.

Nuclear agency urged to review spent fuel pools
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission should take immediate steps to improve the safety of pools containing radioactive waste stored at U.S. nuclear plants, an internal report released Wednesday said.

The recommendation on spent-fuel pools is one of eight steps agency staff says the NRC should take "without delay" as it responds to the Japan crisis.

The report also recommended immediate reviews of seismic and flooding risks at the nation's 104 nuclear reactors.


The report by NRC staff elevates the importance of spent-fuel pools, saying current regulations do not require instruments measuring water levels to be operable in case of accident. Water levels at spent-fuel pools were a key issue after a March 11 earthquake and tsunami that crippled a nuclear plant in Japan.

In June, three months after the tsunami, U.S. officials said newly obtained video showed that the spent fuel pool at Unit 4 at the Fukushima Dai-ichi complex probably did not go dry, as Jaczko had insisted in March.

[link to www.businessweek.com]



-

This is significant in that the NRC has been galvanized by the threat of a similar accident here. The blase attitude has been replaced with a sense of urgency, and rightly so. These and many other issues beg to be resolved posthaste for the safety and security of everyone. The half-assed inspections and policy of non-execution of punishments and fines for violations is not acceptable.

The general public has a tacit agreement with the nuclear industry to keep us safe from the hazards of this technology. So far, they have not lived up to the trust instilled in them by the citizens at risk. That means each and every person has an investment in nuclear power; our health and safety. Playing the odds is not an option.

In regards to the statement that the fuel ponds did not go dry, I respond, well, maybe not bone dry__

but this screenshot I captured in May or thereabouts of the nighttime view at Fukushima, from Tepco's own pointscope web camera__ is not semantics...
