Fukushima timeline - July 2011
- Eugenics War: Fukushima's radiation spreads globally admist Elite complicity
NaturalNews - What happened in Fukushima, Japan on March 11, 2011 may be the most sinister global disaster in the recorded history of our planet. The repercussions of this historic disaster will remain for centuries to come. The manifestations of nuclear radiation from the meltdown of the reactors in Fukushima will haunt humanity in ways that we'll only discover over time. The obvious poisoning of our food, water, and air is just the beginning of what is happening to humanity, animal and plant life, and the planet.
In an interview with Harry Jabs, a nuclear physicist with as masters degree from Texas A&M and who has a Diploma in Physics from the University of Hamburg in Germany, we expose what had to have happened in Fukushima on March 11 and the weeks and months that followed. It is a shocking story that many cannot read without either disbelief or utter shock.
- #Radiation in Fukushima City Order of Magnitude Higher Than Official Numbers?
U-drain at an elementary school 56.9 microsieverts/hour; Fukushima Prefectural Government building 20.8 microsieverts/hour, Fukushima Railroad Station 2.4 to 22.4 microsieverts/hour. "Hot spot" everywhere. The Doshisha researcher was surprised to see these numbers. Does Fukushima City residents know about this?
I couldn't find the official radiation number for the Fukushima Prefectural Government building. The radiation at the Fukushima City Hall, about 1 kilometer away, is 0.95 microsievert/hour as of July 23, according to Fukushima Prefecture.
- Contrary to power company figures, cost of nuclear power generation highest: research
Utility companies across the country continue to tout the low cost of nuclear energy on their websites...
However, Kenichi Oshima, a professor of environmental economics and policy at Ritsumeikan University, has done some calculations and has reached a completely difference conclusion. Oshima says that the cost for a kilowatt- hour of electrical power between fiscal 1970 and fiscal 2007 was 10.68 yen for nuclear, 3.98 yen for hydroelectric, and 9.9 yen for thermal generation, with nuclear-generated power coming out as the most expensive. These calculations were even presented at a meeting of the government's Atomic Energy Commission last September. So how does one explain these two different conclusions?
First of all, there is a huge gap between estimates given by power companies and figures derived from actual records.

- The Expansion of The Nuclear Experiment: Floating Nuclear Power Plants - 180 Mwe, 600m US Dollar, Areva/France Barge-mounted Nuclear Power Plant
The nuclear experiment is one of the longest running, most expensive, and globally tested experiments in history. While nuclear technology has been around for decades, our understanding and ability to control it is tested today, as much as it was 25 year ago in Russia, and over 60 years ago in the United States.
According to Louli Andreev, the Russian nuclear accident specialist who helped clean up Chernobyl – one of the many industry insiders who are speaking out in the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster – the nuclear establishment worldwide is notorious for lying about safety issues.
- China Launches Its First Fourth-Generation Nuclear Reactor
China has brought its first fourth-generation nuclear reactor online. Located in the southwest suburbs of Beijing, fast neutron reactor has an electrical output of 20 megawatts and was connected to the mains Thursday.
- Over 2,600 Meat Cows Suspected of Being Fed with Radioactive Rice Hay
The number was 1,697 yesterday, and to that, 944 cows from Miyagi Prefecture alone were added overnight, bringing the total to at least 2,641.
- Japanese support PM's call to do away with nuclear power: poll
(Reuters) - More than two-thirds of Japanese support Prime Minister Naoto Kan's call to do away with nuclear power, a media poll showed on Sunday, underscoring growing opposition to atomic energy in the wake of the crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.
Earlier this month the unpopular Kan said the Fukushima crisis, triggered by the massive March 11 earthquake and tsunami, had convinced him that Japan should wean itself from nuclear power and eventually have no atomic plants.
- Nuke crisis refugee fought losing 18-year legal battle against Fukushima plant
NIIGATA -- In 1992, Sanzo Onoda and his fellow plaintiffs lost their 18-year legal battle to have one of Fukushima's nuclear power plants shuttered. He and 400 others originally filed the case against the construction of the Fukushima No. 2 Nuclear Power Plant in 1975, pointing to the dangers of a catastrophe in the event of a major earthquake or tsunami.
- Contaminated Water Treatment System: TEPCO Will Bypass Clogged Steel Pipes
The system has the low throughput (37 tonnes/hour instead of 50) on top of the low operating rate (53% in the most recent week). So although not 100% sure, TEPCO thinks it's because of steel pipes clogged up with radioactive sludge. So the company is planning to bypass the particular section and see if the throughput increases.
- Russia Says Iran’s Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant to Open Soon
Iran’s first nuclear power plant at Busheher, constructed by Russian specialists, is about to open in the near future.
During an interview with Rossiya 24 television, Russian Federation Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksandr Lukashevich said, "As far as we know, yes indeed, the launch is planned for the very near future.
- Caribbean blasts shipments of nuclear waste
LOS ANGELES--Caribbean nations on July 20 called on Japan, Britain and France to immediately halt the transport of reprocessed nuclear waste through the Caribbean Sea.
The Caribbean Community (CARICOM), which includes Jamaica and Haiti, said that anxiety about the transport of radioactive waste from Britain and France to Japan has spread through its member countries since the March 11 accident at Japan's Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.
CARICOM said the transit of radioactive waste is unacceptable because it puts at risk the region's people and ecosystem.

According to reports, the rice straw eaten by the cattle contained up to 500 times more radioactive cesium than the legal limit. And these cattle had been shipped to ten different Japanese prefectures, including Tokyo and Hyogo, which represent two of the most highly populated regions in the nation. Many farmers allegedly did not get the memo that continuing to feed cattle with straw, grass, and other feed exposed to open air was dangerous, and that it had been discouraged by the Japanese government.
