  • Radiation leaks from fuel rods suspected at Japan's Tsuruga plant
    FUKUI (Kyodo) -- Leaks of radioactive substances from fuel rods are suspected to have occurred at a nuclear power plant in Tsuruga, the Fukui prefectural government said Monday, citing a rise in the level of radioactive substances in coolant water.

    The operator, Japan Atomic Power Co., will manually shut down the No. 2 reactor of the plant on the Sea of Japan coast and examine the primary cooling system for it. The local government denied that the levels of radioactive substances could threaten the nearby environment.

    According to Japan Atomic, 4.2 becquerels of iodine-133 and 3,900 becquerels of xenon gas were detected per cubic centimeter Monday, up from 2.1 and 5.2 becquerels, respectively, during previous measurements conducted last Tuesday.

  • Fukushima - What They Aren't Saying
    Cold shutdown" means the reactor cores - and the used fuel pools - decrease in temperature through 100 degrees C and continue to go down after a couple of days without additional cooling. If that doesn't happen within 48 hours, it isn't going to. E-V-E-R. The reactors are still 'in service' - which means the fuel is still reacting. It hasn't happened at Fukushima and it never will.

    Pouring water on those reactors may keep them from getting worse - but it doesn't make them any better. And it creates the potential of another earthquake dumping millions of gallons of radioactive water all over the Pacific. They can't continue to create highly radioactive water at the rate of 21 cubic meters per hour for 200 years but the minute they stop the fuel goes critical again..

  • Scientist: Radiation In US Food Will Be Nationwide Problem, Not Just Regional, From Fukushima Nuclear Radioactive Fallout
    Environmental scientist and professional engineer Marco Kaltofen says in ongoing analysis of the nuclear radioactive fallout from Fukushima that radiation in US food will be a nationwide problem and not just a regional one.
