- Extremely Radioactive Sewage Engulfs Over 65 KM Radius From Fukushima Nuclear Plant
Extremely radioactive sewage detected in 19 out of 20 places tested in Japan at distances over 65 Kilometers from the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan while Japanese official play dumb, acting like they didn't realize this would happen and have absolutely no plan to deal with the crisis.
- Leaked 5/6 Japanese Gov't Email Predicted 'High Density' Radiation Release Today (5/8)
<Minutes of meeting between TEPCO and the government on the 1st May. “If the current situation continues, high density radiation will be released on the 8th May.”
“Mr Hosono said: It is very important to go to the next step regarding the installation of the heat exchanger machine. For the concerned parties, be careful of the sharing of information with high sensitivity so that the same mistakes aren’t made again>
- Mislabeled XENON Forecast Map Shows Massive Nuclear Radiation Fallout Cloud Over US
While playing around with the URL's for Japan nuclear iodine forecasts I discovered a nuclear radiation forecast that was accidentally placed on the ZAMG website. The scientists inadvertently uploaded a radiation forecast showing a massive cloud of Fukushima Xenon radiation spreading over Japan and the United States instead of the iodine forecast for May 9, 2011.
- BAD NEWS -- Massive Nuclear Fallout Cloud Of Highly Radioactive Iodine Hammers Japan
Japan Hammered With Massive Nuclear Fallout Cloud Of Highly Radioactive Iodine Which Experts Have Warned Could Create A Dead Zone Across The Country And Indefinitely Split Japan In Two.
- Nuclear physicist suspects No. 3 MOX spent fuel rods have spread out and surrounding area is contaminated with plutonium
About Japan: the problem is that the reactor uses “dirty” fuel. It is a combination of plutonium and uranium (MOX).
I suspect that the old fuel rods have bean [sic] spread out due to the explosion and the surrounding area is contaminated with plutonium which means you can never return to this place again.
- Radiation in No. 1 reactor building “far exceeded expected levels” reaching 700 millisieverts per hour — 500 million becquerels released when opening entrance
Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) on Monday detected radiation levels in the building housing the faltering No. 1 reactor that far exceeded expected levels reaching as high as 700 millisieverts per hour, the utility firm said. [...]
An area with a double-digit millisievert level, let alone three-digit figures, is quite tough as a working environment. So we have to do the work by using some shielding,” Hidehiko Nishiyama, a spokesman for the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, told a press conference. [...]
TEPCO during the press conference were unable to confirm whether the latest measures would be a success and could not say unequivocally whether Asia’s largest utility’s well-publicized schedule to stabilize the plant’s troubled reactors by October would be met. [...]
- U.S.-Japan joint survey reveals high radiation beyond evacuation zone
The first map of ground surface contamination within 80 kilometers of the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant shows radiation levels higher in some municipalities than those in the mandatory relocation zone around the Chernobyl plant
- MSM Fails To Cover 700 mSv Radiation Spike Following Massive Fire At Fukushima
After every corporate media outlet in the nation ran major headline stories about a drop in radiation levels at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, they all fail to report huge spike in radiation levels up to 700 millisieverts per hour following a massive fire at the reactor in Japan.
- Japan to continue using n-power despite Fukushima crisis
Japan will continue to use nuclear power despite the ongoing crisis caused by radiation leak at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, a top official has said.
The power plant was crippled after a magnitude-9 earthquake and ensuing tsunami hit Japan in March.
"Our energy policy is to stick to nuclear power," Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshito Sengoku said on a weekly talk show on public broadcaster NHK.
