  • 3 SIEVERTS/HR at SARRY in #Fukushima I Nuke Plant

    SARRY, a cesium absorption system in the contaminated water treatment complex at Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant was stopped when the extremely high radiation of 3 sieverts/hour was detected during the operation to exchange the cesium towers.

  • New Data Supports Previous Fairewinds Analysis, as Contamination Spreads in Japan and Worldwide

    Latest from Arnie

    Newly released neutron data from three University of California San Diego scientists confirms Fairewinds' April analysis that the nuclear core at Fukushima Daiichi turned on and off after TEPCO claimed its reactors had been shutdown. This periodic nuclear chain reaction (inadvertent criticality) continued to contaminate the surrounding environment and upper atmosphere with large doses of radioactivity.

    It would be great if someone can verify this... 100mSV radiation equals not eating your veggies is pushing it a bit far even for japans gov.

  • Suicides add to despair in Tohoku disaster zone

    SUKAGAWA — When Japanese farmer Hisashi Tarukawa watched the local nuclear plant blow up on television, he uttered a sentence that will forever chill his family: “Oh, no. It’s over.”

  • Suicide boom in post-nuclear Japan - 26 July, 2011

    “We hear some organic farmers committed suicide, because you know for organic farmers soil is everything,” says Komae Hosokawa “They nurture the good soil after many years of hard work and it is just contaminated in one night or two you know. So some farmers committed suicide and I am very sad to hear the news. And many other farmers are also very much depressed.”

  • Radiation concern prompts review of school routes

    The city is located about 60 kilometers from the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. In July, all its 72 elementary and junior high schools measured radiation levels 50 centimeters above the surface of roads used daily by their students.

    50cm above ground... but of course... that's beacuse these kids are FLOATING, you see... Why the hell would they measure radiation on the ground then?

  • Tokyo Says Evacuations Near Plant to Be Extended

    The discovery of elevated radiation came as Tepco reported a sharp drop in levels inside the plant. Tepco has said the level stands at just 0.4 millisievert per year along the boundary of the plant compound, well below the normal limit of one millisievert for ordinary citizens.

    "Radiation spreads like a typhoon," said an official with the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, the main nuclear regulator. "The amount of radioactive substance can be small at the eye of the typhoon, but very large outside."

  • "Ecological Half Life" of Cesium-137 May Be 180 to 320 Years?

    A Wired Magazine article dated December 15, 2009 cites a poster session presentation of the research of the Chernobyl exclusion zone at the American Geophysical Union conference in 2009, and says radioactive cesium may be remaining in the soil far longer than what the half life (30 years) suggests.

    webmasters comment:

    i find it more probable that the cesium is still being emitted from below. The new dome that the russians are building is nothing short but proof of ongoing problems. Don't fix it if it's not broken rule applies here also.

  • Government, industry refocus on nuclear plant exports

    The government has resumed its joint efforts with industry to export nuclear power plants, despite effectively halting reactor construction at home following the accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.

    webmasters comment:

    Such a kind gesture from japans government don't you think? Not only they are willfully and free of charge exporting radiation, they are also happy to provide you with your own source of the same medicine... + if you order now, they will send some radioactive ash from debris burning completly free of charge... 1 mio dead worth of value if you call in next 15mins.

  • Quake jolts eastern Japan; no tsunami threat

    TOKYO — A strong earthquake hit near Japan’s eastern coast on Monday night, but there was no danger of a tsunami.

    Japan’s Meteorological Agency said the quake registered a preliminary magnitude of 6.0. It was centered off the coast of Ibaraki, about 220 kilometers east of Tokyo, at a depth of 30 kilometers.

  • #Radioactive Sludge in Kindergartens in Tokamachi City, Niigata

    Tokamachi City in Niigata Prefecture announced on August 22 the result of the survey of radioactive materials in the soil in nursery schools and kindergartens in the city. 18,900 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium was found in the sludge at the bottom of the container that collects rainwater at a public nursery school, and 27,000 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium was found in the yard compost pile at a private kindergarten.

  • Fukushima gov't seeks lifting of ban on cattle shipments

    FUKUSHIMA (Kyodo) -- The Fukushima prefectural government on Monday called on the central government to lift its ban on cattle shipments from the prefecture, saying the cause of newly discovered cattle's radioactive contamination has been determined.

    The government of Fukushima Prefecture, where the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is located, has reported that 12 cattle from the town of Namie, Fukushima Prefecture were found to be contaminated with radioactive cesium exceeding the government-set limit because they were fed cesium- tainted hay.

  • Japanese people are more unhealthy than ever

    Across the country, about 17.7 percent of under-40s, 9.9 percent fortysomethings, 5.6 percent of fiftysomethings and 3.7 percent of over-60s were classified as healthy.

    webmasters comment:

    Don't blame Tepco, don't blame radiation and god forbid, never think of blaming the nuclear industry and/or government of Japan. It's the peoples fault beacuse they are unhealthy!

  • Government to rent land that will remain in no-entry zone

    However, 35 of 50 locations in the area showed estimated annual accumulated radiation levels far above the reference value of 20 millisieverts for evacuation orders.

    In the Koirino area of Okuma in Fukushima Prefecture, a measurement of 508.1 millisieverts was recorded.

  • ‘Scientists don’t know why’: Cesium-137 in soil near Chernobyl has half-life of 180 to 320 years, not 30 years as is typical

    It stands to reason that at some point the Ukrainian government would like to be able to use that land again, but the scientists have calculated that what they call cesium’s “ecological half-life” — the time for half the cesium to disappear from the local environment — is between 180 and 320 years.

    “Normally you’d say that every 30 years, it’s half as bad as it was. But it’s not,” said Tim Jannik, nuclear scientist at Savannah River National Laboratory and a collaborator on the work. “It’s going to be longer before they repopulate the area.” [...]
