Charles Perrow, a professor emeritus at Yale University on fuel rod removal at Unit #4 Fukushima.
“Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable [and] would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo”
“[Then] the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.”

Senior marine chemist Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution :
“The tuna that were caught off San Diego with the Fukushima cesium isotopes, they were 10 to 20 times lower than they had been off Japan. Now the new releases, the leak from the tanks – they’re changing in character. Strontium 90 has become of more concern because it’s a bone-seeking isotope. That will stay in fish much longer,” he said.

Michael Collins Radiation Update
10-21-13 Michael Collins Radiation UpdateMichael Collins Radiation Update (21 October 2013): One hour special that covers much of the radiation challenges facing us today regarding Fukushima, nuclear power safety and the never-resting nonsense spewed by pro-nukers in the media such as the New York Times.
Hot Purple RainThe series listeners have been waiting for, Black Swan SONGS, is finally out describing in five pieces and 23,000 words the threats facing the spent fuel at the San Onofre and Peach Bottom nuclear generating stations. Discussion moves to story of an experienced yachtsman making the Pacific Ocean trek first from Australia to Japan and then onto North America. Sea life is near non-existent for thousands of miles save for a huge whale floating on top of the water with a massive head tumor. “The Ocean is Broken” may be a ‘fish story’ but if it isn’t, the tale it tells is hopelessly heartbreaking. Jeff and Michael discuss next typhoon bearing down on Fukushima and the massive spikes in radiation readings that previous storms over the stricken plant have left in their wakes. Even with persistent poisonous radionuclides recently found in British sediment bordering the Irish sea, the UK government announces the construction of two new nuclear reactors on its southern coast. Michael points out that the British taxpayer will be on the hook for billions in this outrageous government giveaway. US Pacific Coast seaweed is again found contaminated with Fuku goo in the form of cesium-134, cesium-137 and cobalt-60 which suggests ongoing fission at the Japanese site of the triple meltdowns. Sad state of the media in which New York Times dismisses Fukushima radiation and lauds new EPA rules that radically raise amounts of allowable radiation in emergencies, a dangerous plan first exposed months ago in EnviroReporter.com with EPA Nukes Radiation Rules. Happy, though small, state of citizen awareness as 500 people gather on San Francisco beach forming a human chain reading “FUKUSHIMA IS HERE.” Michael discusses $60 billion US government is planning to spend ‘modernize’ its nuclear weapons complex suggesting money would be better spent tracking and addressing Fuku goo. US EPA says “To this day, the [RadNet] system continues to confirm that there are no harmful levels of radiation in the air reaching the U.S. from Japan,” an EPA spokesperson said in the last week when EnviroReporter.com‘s own US EPA RadNet graphs data shows upward spikes in beta radiation in Phoenix AZ, Anaheim, Fresno & Los Angeles CA, Albuquerque NM, Corvalis OR, Amarillo TX and Charleston WV. One of the best shows in over 2.5 years of bringing radiation information to a growing international audience.

Black Swan Songs – 4 Part Series on San Onofre.

Black Swan SONGS banner

The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, or SONGS, sits south of San Clemente along the Southern California coast between Los Angeles and San Diego. A four-month investigation reveals that the shuttered plant’s spent nuclear fuel rods are vulnerable to earthquakes and terrorist attacks which could result in a “black swan” event – a foreseeable but ignored disaster of epic proportions. Spent fuel pools’ vulnerability nationwide is well known to nuclear watchdogs like the ones that succeeded in shutting down SONGS. The phlegmatic government and nuclear power industry responses to these threats are inadequate to the challenge. EnviroReporter.com exposes the vulnerabilities and proposes solutions that should be enacted.

The findings of the newly released 2013 World Nuclear Industry Status Report, prepared by Mycle Schneider, Antony Froggatt et al., show that only three reactors started up worldwide in 2012 while six were shut down. Meanwhile, China, India, Germany and Japan now generate more power from renewables than nuclear. Read the report.

Report raises fresh concerns about radiation levels in Japanese fish.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency tested fish exports from Japan for several months, but dropped the testing in June 2011, just three months after the disaster. “Canadian authorities are really doing us all a disservice by not following and monitoring this much more closely. They’re treating it as though it’s a kind of ho-hum situation, but in fact, it was a major event worldwide. And it should be studied very more carefully because that’s the only way we’re going to learn what the effects of this may be for the future” said Gordon Edwards.

Cesium 137 found in Children’s Urine in Fukushima Showing Ongoing Widespread Problem in Japan.
The acceptable amount of radioactive cesium in human urine is zero. The substances (cesium 134 and 137) does not exist in nature and cause damage to the human body. It was widely reported that a citizen group in the Tokyo region found cesium in children’s urine recently. While this is notable, it isn’t unique. Radioactive cesium has been found in the urine of children across a wide area of northern Japan since 2011.

Extremely clear explanation of the threat to us from Fukushima.
Journalist, author, activist and historian Harvey Wasserman has been reporting on, and participating in, the nuclear free movement for decades. In that time, by his judgment, only one other event matches the danger to the world posed by the Cuban Missile Crisis. That event is the ongoing nuclear disaster at Fukushima.

In 5 Charts, Here’s Why Nuclear Energy Is Going Nowhere.
(note from Mary Olson at NIRS:Please note that one of the key factors that under-lie the 5 charts shown in the article linked below is that nuclear has not been building much or fast… well folks there is a LOT of different reasons for that, but one of them surely is that PEOPLE have said “no way” — we have helped to keep the institutional memory of nuclear accidents, melt-downs and 98 reactors CANCELED in the first round of nuclear construction… so please do not look at this and let ANYONE tell you we did not have to “bother!

The demand for a global take-over at Fukushima has hit critical mass.
By Harvey Wasserman – 

More than 48,000 global citizens have now signed a petition at www.nukefree.org asking the United Nations and the world community to take charge of the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant. Another 35,000 have signed at www.rootsaction.org . An independent advisory group of scientists and engineers is also in formation.

9-30-13 Michael Collins Radiation UpdateMichael Collins Radiation Update (30 September 2013): Historic show starting minutes into the U.S. federal government shutdown. Michael thanked over 800,000 fed workers for their service and expressed sympathy for their unearned plight. Also gave thanks that the EPA’s RadNet hadn’t gone dark which is good because this crucial information is brought to the public in an accessible way by EnviroReporter.com on our U.S. EPA RadNet Data page.
Amarillo TX high beta radiation readings over 3 monthsDiscussion of the FDA’s new *voluntary* ban on a huge list of food products from 15 Japanese prefectures. Michael noted that Japanese food has radiation limits in their food 12 times more strict than the U.S. standards meaning that their hot food can be shipped to us legally with no one the wiser. Hence the importance of our Radiation Food Lab, the most comprehensive data on food, water and other ingestibles anywhere in the world. RFB honcho and Team EnviroReporter stalwart Peter Dailey’s new detections of Radium-220 spell real trouble. From his report we discussed: “The rain swab collected at Caloundra was tested and found to contain both the decay daughters of both Radon-222, and Radon-220. It is common to get Radon-222 washouts, not Radon-220. Radon-222 is from the Uranium decay chain, and Radon-220 is from the Thorium decay chain. This theory has been put forward by a contact in New Zealand. The Radon-220 decay daughter isotope detection here, is an indication that one or more of the underground coriums at Fukushima undergoing fast neutron fission. One or more coriums are possibly purifying, and operating in a mode of unmoderated fission. This would increase the yields of Thorium daughters.” Russia has also banned food from 7 Japanese prefectures and China along with South Korea have restrictions too. Before Michael wrapped up the show, he again reminded his devoted listeners that true character is what a person does when he or she knows that doom looms. He also talked about the radiation levels in Montogomery AL, Tuscon AZ, Los Angeles CA, Denver CO, Washington DC, Tallahassee FL, Fort Wayne IN, Corvallis OR, Toledo OH, Amarillo TX and Harrisonburg VA.

There’s significant structural damage to the Unit 4 spent fuel pool. New structures had to be created.
They’re going to have to lift significant debris from the pools.
These are all very, very unprecedented activities.

Fukushima Forever.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/charles-perrow/fukushima-forever_b_3941589.html

September 20, 2013
Much more serious is the danger that the spent fuel rod pool at the top of the nuclear plant number four will collapse in a storm or an earthquake, or in a failed attempt to carefully remove each of the 1,535 rods and safely transport them to the common storage pool 50 meters away. Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years. […]
The denial that Fukushima has any significant health impacts echoes the denials of the atomic bomb effects in 1945; the secrecy surrounding Windscale and Chelyabinsk; the studies suggesting that the fallout from Three Mile Island was, in fact, serious; and the multiple denials regarding Chernobyl (that it happened, that it was serious, and that it is still serious).

Environmental groups challenge NRC’s false confidence on radioactive waste, organize for nationwide public comment meetings.
Irony of NRC’s “Draft Consequence Study,” given her own co-authorship of a 2003 study that strongly warned of the needless risks of fire in densely-packed HLRW storage pools. In fact, a number of her co-authors on that study were among those at yesterday’s meeting strongly criticizing NRC’s “Draft Consequence Study,” including Alvarez and Thompson mentioned above, as well as Dr. Ed Lyman, now at Union of Concerned Scientists.

So we’ve known about the leaks, they seem to be getting stronger.

Timothy Mousseau, Professor of biological studies at the University of South Carolina:
In terms of fish from the West Coast, what we need to be doing is monitoring the ebb and flow of these pockets of high contamination […]
Given what we’re seeing off the coast of Japan right now with some of these new models and these new studies showing pockets of fairly concentrated materials can be carried relatively intact — even all the way across the ocean — there may be little patches of areas that are affected in a significant way.

Michael Collins Radiation Update.
9-09-13 Michael Collins Radiation UpdateMichael Collins Radiation Update: A special one-hour classic show that wasn’t even long enough for the breadth of disaster discussed. Of course Michael’s Tokyo’s Radiation Olympics and Yoichi Shimatsu’s Boycott The Radioactive 2020 Olympics Of Death were the top topics since their double-barrel debut in response to the outrage that greeted Tokyo Japan’s being awarded by the controversial and corruption-riven doyens of the International Olympic Committee in Buenos Aires Argentina September 7. The gold medal performance of Prime Minister Abe convincing the creaky IOC board that all was AOK at Fukushima was easily dissembled by Michael as he pointed out that TEPCO actually pleaded with the Japanese government to take control of the disaster in the week before Dishonest Abe’s blizzard of hogwash won the day. The fact that Fukushima Dai-ichi’s Unit 4, with its full spent fuel pool tottering four stories above the ground, has recently sunk over 30 inches into the soup that the ground is turning into was pointed out by Jeff. The hyper-hot groundwater is within four inches of the surface and the entire site is about to sink into the slush. Once Unit 4 collapses before the spent fuel is removed – an impossible task as the rods are busted and not removable even with TEPCO’s weak assurances – Tokyo is toast as EnviroReporter reported in The Unforgettable Fire in June 2012. Michael gave numerous examples of Tokyo contamination as reported in Rad News Digest just since the beginning of the year: June 17 – 300 Bq/Kg in the park of Konanku Yokohama city” (Tokyo – 178 miles south of Fukushima, Yokohama – 204 miles south of Fukusima); June 16 – 19,000 Bq/Kg from the drain of balcony in Setagaya Tokyo; June 8 – 102.5 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from Sayama (suburb of Tokyo) green tea leaves for sale; May 28 – Cs-134/137 from pool bottom sediment of 9 of 9 elementary school in Chiba,(20 miles NE of Tokyo) max as 796 Bq/Kg and on and on. Jeff talked about a letter sent to him from South Korean flight attendants about the hazards of flying through the air over Fukushima. Michael reminded the audience, which has grown significantly and shows its appreciation more and more, that EnviroReporter.com‘s US EPA RadNet compilation shows high beta radiation, almost certainly from Fukushima or local reactor releases, in the American cities of Montgomery AL, Phoenix AZ, Fort Smith AR, Bakersfield CA, Tallahassee FL, Augusta GA, Fort Wayne IN and other locales including St. Louis MO which had a September 8 rain 108 times background. Jeff and Michael discuss how the California Highway Patrol considers anything over three times background a HAZMAT situation. This hot show again demonstrates that people know where to go to get the real skinny on the radically rad world we’re living where those with true courage to face the consequences are few and far between but always are on the Michael Collins Radiation Update.

Wanna eat fish?: So what happens if you eat seafood? Researchers measured the increase in radioactive polonium levels in semen after a single seafood meal. It caused a 300 percent spike in radioactivity levels. Probably not enough to cause infertility—but that was just one meal. Whether the kind of dose you can get from eating seafood is high enough to damage sperm cells still needs to be established. We may have to eat as much as a pound of seafood a month before we might realize the harmful effects of the radiation.

Fracked Nation
Fracking Chemical Cocktail and Mr. Drill attend “The Toxies Exposed” premiere August 15 and reveal their designs on Southern California. Frackie has quietly made herself at home in the Southland and in 34 states raising gas and controversy. It made perfect sense that Frackie would wow the crowd and press at film premiere which she sees as vindication for all the bad press she’s gotten. Fracking Chemical Cocktail’s drinks look almost as good as she does. So confident is Frackie that she shares her deepest “fracktastic” plans.

EnviroReporter.com has found that a little known new threat posed by fracking is slowly becoming known in addition to the already established menaces of groundwater contamination, huge water usage, methane gas releases and fracking induced earthquakes.

Fracking also threatens the very value and marketability of real estate, so much so that major insurance companies are not renewing homeowner insurance policies on properties that have been fracked or are near fracking. Lenders will not loan money on property that has potential for hazardous activity and contamination issues meaning that the land owner is truly fracked. The land becomes uninsurable and unsellable making it worthless.

Michael Collins Radiation update
8-26-13 Michael Collins Radiation UpdateMichael Collins Radiation Update August 26, 2013: Fast and furious show as Fukushima triple meltdowns’ “Lost Coriums” sink deeper into the ground, they are impacting the groundwater which is directly leaking into Pacific with astonishing radiation readings. Japan asks for international help for first time publicly as situation out of control. Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and 3 scientists from the GEOMAR Research Center for Marine Geosciences showed that radiation on the West Coast of North America could end up being 10 times higher than in Japan by 2016. Michael postulates that this is true for the radiation leaking now but in three years, he predicts the radiation gushing out of Fukushima will even dwarf today’s unbelievable numbers with the result that after 2019, the cesium-134 and cesium-137 off the West Coast will make even 2016’s numbers seem enviable. Jeff figures his 400 tons of radioactive goo sloshing into the Pacific is low. Intense and deep discussion of how this is ruining the Pacific and all the unfortunate flora and fauna in it. “Fracked Nation,” Michael’s new article is discussed showing how EnviroReporter.com has found that a little known new threat posed by fracking is slowly becoming known in addition to the already established menaces of groundwater contamination, huge water usage, methane gas releases and fracking induced earthquakes. Fracking also threatens the very value and marketability of real estate, so much so that major insurance companies are not renewing homeowner insurance policies on properties that have been fracked or are near fracking. Lenders will not loan money on property that has potential for hazardous activity and contamination issues meaning that the land owner is truly fracked. The land becomes uninsurable and unsellable making it worthless. Once that happens, these same oil and gas companies, as well as the insurers and lenders, will be able to scoop up huge swaths of land for pennies on the dollar. This is news that homeowners over frackable oil and gas better pay attention to. We certainly will and won’t let up covering the story.

Fukushima getting worse: BBC:Fukushima leak is ‘much worse than we were led to believe.

Dr Ken Buesseler is a senior scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who has examined the waters around Fukushima.
“It is not over yet by a long shot, Chernobyl was in many ways a one week fire-explosive event, nothing with the potential of this right on the ocean.”
“We’ve been saying since 2011 that the reactor site is still leaking whether that’s the buildings and the ground water or these new tank releases. There’s no way to really contain all of this radioactive water on site.”
“Once it gets into the ground water, like a river flowing to the sea, you can’t really stop a ground water flow. You can pump out water, but how many tanks can you keep putting on site?”
Several scientists also raised concerns about the vulnerability of the huge amount of stored water on site to another earthquake.

The quantities of water [TEPCO is] dealing with are absolutely gigantic. What is worse is that the water leakage is everywhere else—it’s not just [coming] from the tanks. It is leaking out from the basements, it is leaking from the cracks all over the place. Nobody can measure that. It is much worse than we have been led to believe, much worse.”

Fukushima getting worse: The Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority said the cascading series of radioactive water leaks from the Fukushima plant is approaching a worst case scenario.
[Tepco] warned there may be hundreds more tanks like [the one leaking] on the site of the 2011 meltdown.
“We cannot waste even a minute,” [Chairman of the Japan Nuclear Regulation Authority Shunichi Tanaka] said. “This is what we have been fearing.” […]
Atsunao Marui, director of research at Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, said the situation is likely to get worse.
“It’s important to think of the worst-case scenario,” he said.

8-12-13 Michael Collins Radiation UpdateMichael Collins Radiation Update August 19, 2013: This may be the finest hour-long special in the last 2.5 years. Associated Press picks up on the Santa Susana Field Laboratory story with alternative headlines betraying battle of Boeing PR flack Gary Polakovic and the residents fighting for the agreed-upon comprehensive cleanup to background levels of rads and chems. AP not fooled by Polakovic’s meltdown makeover of SSFL with Girl Scouts and disadvantaged youths the target of Boeing photo ops at lab. Three 100-ton meltdown coriums ‘missing’ at Fukushima as radiation readings higher in last week than at any time during the meltdown. 125 liters of intensely hot goo found outside Unit 4 with damaged spent fuel pool that will destroy Tokyo if it collapses and catches fire. SPF 4 has 14,000 Hiroshima bombs worth of cesium-137 alone. Radiation readings pick up sharply in San Francisco and San Diego. New Dept. of Defense study by University of Texas research assistant says all reactor complexes, spent fuel pools and nuclear weapons storage depots are vulnerable to terrorists. Flawed study misses the most obvious weakenesses but does show that subject itself isn’t taboo in DOD circles, an important consideration in surveillance state where executive branch targets journalists. EnviroReporter.com study will break mold on issue. New Freedom of Information Act documents show coverup of Fukushima triple meltdowns in US with West Coast pounded with fallout in early days of ongoing triple meltdown begun March 11, 2011. Over 100 Ohio earthquakes near nuke plant on Great Lakes caused by fracking in official new study.

“The seriousness of the situation cannot be overstated. It is truly a global crisis. A host of observers have called for a team of the world’s top scientists to take over the entire clean-up, especially in light of Tepco’s miserable track record of missteps and misinformation.

But the danger of “radiological disaster” from Reactor Four is real. For the Japanese it’s a living nightmare, and for the west coast of North America, it is a legitimate threat.”
“If we had a responsible government, we would be told about the risks from Reactor Four. People could take measures to protect themselves and their families in the event that an earthquake or blunder by Tepco caused the unspeakable to occur.”

Fukushima: Radioactive cesium in seawater by Fukushima has gone from 71 million to 200 bq/litre in two years.(Long blog by ex-skf that may be reassuring)

“Off-handed remark of “300 tonnes of contaminated water leaking every day” by a career bureaucrat from the most powerful government ministry in Japan. The remark was actually a mere assumption by the official and his office but was reported as “fact”. It is safe, I believe, to assume that the highly contaminated water that still exists in the trenches and which has radioactive cesium in billions of becquerels per liter is not leaking in great quantity into the seawater yet.

Fukushima getting worse: S. Korean Editorial: The Japanese government has finally acknowledged that highly radioactive water has been pouring out at a rate of 300 tons a day from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant. That means about 270,000 tons [270,000,000 liters] of contaminated water has flowed into the Pacific Ocean over nearly two-and-a-half years. […]
It defies understanding how Japan has hid this regional, if not global, issue of environmental concern from its neighbors.

“Different isotopes that are radioactive are shifting from being predominantly a caesium concern early on to what might be different isotopes, including strontium 90, if you know something about these isotopes, they accumulate differently in fish and in parts of our bodies, so strontium is called the bone seeking isotope, because it looks like there’s calcium in the fish and in our bone, so it has a more long term affect and potentially different health affect to the caesium that’s been released earlier.”

Fukushima getting worse: Paul Gunter on Fukushima nuclear waste still leaking into Pacific . Radioactive cesium strontium hydrogen and tritium – 300 – 400 metric tons per day ” We’re seeing a full range of radioactive contaminants now moving, which indicate that the damaged cores of these reactors — the meltdowns themselves — are now contributing to the contamination in the Pacific Ocean and groundwater. […]”
Right now we’re seeing the Japanese government is in chaos.
The fact that the revelation of this extensive contamination is coming now — more than two years after the accident occurred — indicates that it’s completely out of control. […]

Indications are right now that the reactor structures themselves have been breached.
It’s very likely that some of the radioactive material — the melted cores — have moved into the earth.
So it’s beyond containment right now.
I think that’s the tragedy that we see unfolding as Fukushima’s radioactive water crisis is only beginning. […]

The water could pool dangerously underground, softening the earth and potentially toppling the reactor buildings, he said.

Hanford: Cleanup Options For Hanford’s 300 Area Going Public […] Federal officials are trying to figure out what to do about radioactive materials that remain at a place near the Columbia River known as the 300 Area. […] The 300 Area was where workers milled uranium rods and tested ways to process plutonium during WWII and the Cold War. They poured about 2 million gallons of radioactive liquid waste a day into sandy ponds and trenches right next to the Columbia River. […] One of the remaining jobs is to work on a 125-acre groundwater plume contaminated with uranium.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Saturday that the trench problem at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant has cropped up again and is sending highly radioactive water into the sea.

The water in the underground passage, which runs under the turbine building of reactor 2, contains 2.35 billion becquerels of cesium per liter, roughly the same as that measured right after the crisis began in spring 2011. The latest sample, taken Friday from a trench, contained 750 million becquerels of cesium-134, 1.6 billion becquerels of cesium-137 and 750 million becquerels of other radioactive substances, the utility said. A sample from April 2011 contained 1.8 billion becquerels of both cesium-134 and cesium-137 per liter. Cesium has a half-life of about 30 years.

Rising Tritium Could Trigger 
Huge Fukushima Blasts.

The underground corium pockets can be detected by radiation scanners and with blast tomography, which reveals the locations of larger concentrations. Next, steam-injection pumps used at near-exhausted oil fields should be deployed to pump borax solution into those pockets. Borax unlike boric acid, crystallizes in solution, thereby partitioning the underground spaces with neutron-absorbing barriers. Subdivided into smaller cysts, the fissile materials will be deprived of critical mass.

Steam Detected at Damaged Fukushima Reactor.
The incident has brought the Fukushima plant’s vulnerable state into sharp relief, more than two years after its reactors suffered multiple meltdowns when its cooling systems were overwhelmed by a powerful earthquake and tsunami. A recent jump in levels of radioactive cesium and tritium in the groundwater at the coastal plant, along with suggestions that the groundwater is leaking into the Pacific, has also raised alarms over the continued environmental threat posed by the plant.
Fresh trouble at the No. 3 reactor is especially worrying because it contains mixed uranium-plutonium oxide fuel. The upper floors of the reactor also house its fuel pool, which stores over 500 fuel assemblies. The reactor complex’s basement is flooded with highly radioactive water. Studies show that an accident like a meltdown or containment failure in a reactor that holds such fuel would result in more cancer deaths than one in a reactor fueled only with uranium.

Fukushima getting worse: Gundersen’s Fairewinds podcast
Marco Kaltofen, a leading scientist who studies radiation as well as specific radioactive isotopes. Marco and Arnie discuss a recent sample that contained highly concentrated radioactive material from Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident.
Marco Kaltofen, President at Boston Chemical Data Corp. & Doctoral student researcher at Worcester Polytechnic Institute: […] We kept hearing reports about something unusual, a black dust […] we finally got a very small sample of that […]
What’s different about this material is unlike a lot of the soil and dust samples we’ve gotten, there’s a real uniformity to this stuff. It’s a single substance. It’s not a mix of mineral particles and pieces of dead bugs and plant matter and dust particles. It’s actually very homogenous and uniform when you look at it under the microscope. And it doesn’t look like the surrounding soils. And it is much more intensely radioactive than any other soil or dust sample we’ve gotten from around Fukushima Daiichi. So this material is different. It’s not a natural soil. There’s something unusual happening with this stuff. […]
The sample had fairly high levels of radium 226. Now that’s not a radioisotope that we hear as much about. The radium 226 has almost as much activity as the radioactive Cesium in the sample. Radium 226 is a degradation product of uranium and we can’t really detect the uranium directly. […] And this tells me that this particle contains not only fission waste products from the reactor but very likely contains a concentrated unburned nuclear fuel. And that’s unusual. This sample had by far the highest level of uranium daughters that we’ve seen in a dust or soil sample. We’re actually seeing material that might well have come from inside a failed fuel assembly.

Washington state nuclear storage facility a leaking time bomb

In 2006, construction was suspended for 22 months after an independent review concluded the department underestimated the force of ground movements at the site should a severe earthquake occur.

Hydrogen gas could build up inside the tanks and possibly cause an explosion that would release radioactive material. The Defence Nuclear Facilities Safety Board recommended additional monitoring and ventilation of the tanks last fall to avoid such a disaster, and federal officials are working to develop a plan to implement the recommendation.

No plan in place when leak alarm sounded at Hanford .
Quick action to address a leak in AY-102 was important given the nature of the high-level waste the tank contains, according to Bob Alvarez, a former nuclear policy adviser to President Clinton. Tank AY-102 contains massive amounts of the nuclear by-product Strontium-90 –- more than any other tank at Hanford. Strontium-90 sinks to the bottom of waste tanks and generates heat so hot it boils the material around it.

Duke Energy and government regulators have been hiding a not-so-little secret from the people of the Carolinas. Duke’s Oconee nuclear power plant, three aged nuclear reactors 30 miles from Greenville, SC, is at risk of a meltdown should an upstream dam fail. If that were to happen, a meltdown of all three reactors on the scale of the Fukushima meltdowns and subsequent containment failure are virtual certainties according to U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) documents obtained by Greenpeace .
We’ve also received a tip that the cost to upgrade the Oconee nuclear plant site to address this triple meltdown threat would cost Duke Energy a billion dollars.

EPA Proposes to Reduce Toxic Pollutants Discharged into Waterways by Power Plants.
There are numerous documented instances of environmental impacts associated with steam electric plant discharges including widespread aquatic life impacts and toxic metal bioaccumulation in wildlife. In addition, there are increased cancer and non-cancer risks to human health from these discharges. EPA has monetized benefits where possible but most of the real benefits could not be quantified.
EPA’s proposed options would annually reduce pollutant discharges by 470 million to 2.62 billion pounds and reduce water use by 50 billion to 103 billion gallons per year at affected steam electric power plants.

A new book Agricultural Implications of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident provides information about the actual movement and accumulation of radioactivity in the ecological system—for example, whether debris deposited on mountains can be a cause of secondary contamination, under what conditions plants accumulate radioactive cesium in their edible parts, and how radioactivity is transferred from hay to milk. The book is published in Springer’s open access (OA) program and is freely available on SpringerLink (link.springer.com) to anyone with access to the internet.

Regulators and congressional investigators clashed Wednesday over a new report warning that in the event of an accident at a nuclear plant, panicking residents from outside the official evacuation zone might jam the roads and prevent others from escaping.
The report by the Government Accountability Office, which acts as the investigative arm of Congress, challenges a three-decade-old fundamental of emergency planning around American nuclear power plants: that preparations for evacuation should focus on people who live within 10 miles of the site.

Fukushima remains unstable.
“It’s become obvious that Tepco is not at all capable of leading the cleanup. It just doesn’t have the expertise, and because Fukushima Daiichi is never going to generate electricity again, every yen it spends on the decommissioning is thrown away. That creates an incentive to cut corners, which is very dangerous. The government needs to step in, take charge and assemble experts and technology from around the world to handle the decommissioning instead.” -Muneo Morokuzu, a nuclear safety expert at the Tokyo University Graduate School of Public Policy
“The Fukushima Daiichi plant remains in an unstable condition, and there is concern that we cannot prevent another accident.”

A recent investigative report documented that GE has known this all along, that the units were faulty in design and hoped they could possibly fix them with changes later on. Instead of coming up with a working design they suppressed information, complaints from engineers were ignored and they wrote liability out clauses into contracts with local utilities that unwittingly bought these reactors. Court documents from a lawsuit between a Washington state utility and GE exposed the extent to which GE went to lie to utilities and the public about the faulty design of their reactors.

Letter to Abe quoting health effects of Fukushima:
“Analysis based on the most inclusive data sets available reveals that radioactive fallout from the Fukushima meltdown is at least as big as Chernobyl and more global in reach.”
“400 to 500 times the amount of cesium-137 of the Hiroshima atomic bomb, has already been dispersed into the atmosphere.”
“It is unlikely that there is a threshold below which cancers are not induced.”
“A single becquerel of radiation has the potential to initiate cell damage ultimately leading to cancer and assorted illnesses.” “Radiation contamination is cumulative, with the greatest danger resulting from internal exposure through inhaling contaminated air, eating contaminated foods and drinking contaminated water. Thus, the longer one remains in a contaminated environment, the more likely one is to become sick.
“About 10 million people have been left in the areas that should have been designated radiation-controlled areas, and they are exposed to continual radiation every day.”

Petition NRC to revoke the operating licenses of dangerous GE Mark I & Mark II reactors.

On March 19, 2013, a majority of the five-member Commission voted to reject the agency’s Japan Lessons Learned Project Directorate and their senior staff’s recommendation to promptly Order to back fit all General Electric boiling water reactors with Mark I and Mark II containments with the installation of engineered high-capacity radiation filters on more robust severe accident capable vents on the Fukushima-style containment structures. Instead by majority vote (4-1), the Commissioners sided with the industry agenda for dangerous half measures that will potentially leave the downwind communities vulnerable to the uncontained releases of radioactivity in the event of an accident involving reactor core fuel damage and introduces undue, indeterminate and imprudent delay in addressing these aging reactors with dangerously flawed and vulnerable containment structures.
You can join Beyond Nuclear and safe energy organizations in petitioning the NRC to revoke these Fukushima-style reactors here in the United States by signing up here: http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/7285/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=13397

Allison MacFarlane, who alone voted for the filters, wrote:
“My decision reflects, in part, my experiences during a recent trip the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan. The visit required to the reactors required travel through deserted villages, full of abandoned homes and businesses overgrown with weeds, and past fallow fields, and unused industrial buildings, roads and railroad tracks, all of which emphasized the impact of the accident from a nuclear plant that was over 10 kilometers away.

Engineered filtered containment system can help protect the public and the environment by significantly reducing the amount of radiological effluent released from containment during a severe accident. All currently available information indicates that the ability to vent containment through filters would be an improvement to safety;

Potential Cost Of A Nuclear Accident? So High It’s A Secret!
Catastrophic nuclear accidents, like Chernobyl or Fukushima, are very rare, we’re incessantly told. But when they do occur, they’re costly. In every way. So costly that the French government, when it came up with estimates, kept them secret. But the report was leaked: an accident at a single reactor in a thinly populated part of France could cost over three times France’s GDP. Financially, France would cease to exist as we know it.

INTERVIEW: Former U.S. nuke watchdog chair says regulators must stay independent.
In a recent interview with The Asahi Shimbun in Washington, Gregory Jaczko, former chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), said it is crucial for a nuclear watchdog to stay independent from the nuclear industry.
“When we inspected nuclear plants in the United States after the Fukushima accident, we found many of the anti-terrorism measures had not been implemented appropriately the way they were designed. The plants would not necessarily have survived a tsunami or an earthquake, because the safety measures were designed to be used in the event of a terrorist attack.”

Key Message: Allison M. Macfarlane, head of NRC, cited aging nuclear reactors, terrorist attacks and natural disasters, saying, “we don’t know everything about how the Earth behaves, and we must factor this into how we approach nuclear safety.’’
“The current generation of reactors has already outlived the theory of geology that was prevalent when their sites were chosen…..they predate wide acceptance of the theory of plate tectonics — the view that the Earth’s crust is made up of plates that rub and slip against one another.”

Mind-boggling mistakes at leaking U.S. nuclear site — “The chances of a catastrophic event are real” -Former Governor (VIDEO).

The most contaminated nuclear site in the world is right here on the beautiful Columbia River in the Pacific Northwest. At Hanford Nuclear Facility in Washington State, 56 million gallons of radioactive waste sit in underground storage tanks. Those tanks have already leaked more than one million gallons of a toxic brew of plutonium, enriched uranium, nitric acid, and solvents into the ground.

They said they were trying to prevent a meltdown, when in fact they knew within the first couple of days Reactors 1, 2, and 3 at Fukushima Daiichi had melted down, and they actually melted through the steel containment vessels.
So there was a worst case scenario that they were trying to hide, they even knew that at that time enormous amounts of radiation were released over Japan and some of it even went over Tokyo […]
The melted core cracked the containment vessel, there really is no containment. So as soon as they pump the water in it leaks out again.

CBS News: U.S. nuclear waste leak a “major emergency problem” — Most dangerous substances known to science — “A ticking time bomb” (VIDEO).

CBS News contributor Michio Kaku, a physics professor at the City University of New York: It is scandalous […] we’re leaking nuclear waste dating all the way back to the Nagaski bomb […]
A toxic witches brew of chemicals, the most dangerous known to science like plutonium, enriched uranium, nitric acid and solvents. […] We have 56 million gallons worth of this toxic stuff. To get this into perspective, to get your head around this, imagine 80 Olympic-sized swimming pools containing the most toxic substance known to science of which two Olympic-size swimming pools have leaked right into the ground and eventually into the water table and, perhaps, even into people’s drinking water.
We have to immediate realize that this is a major emergency problem. The government promised 10 years ago that it’s under control. Now we realize it’s not. They have to take the waste, put it into new vats that are double, triple lined. They have to drill to assess how far the waste is. And it’s a ticking time bomb. In 15, 50 years — we don’t know when — it’s going to hit the ground table. When it hits the ground table, it will go right into the Columbia River, and remember, that’s one of the major rivers in the entire Pacific Northwest.

An expert on the effects of longterm exposure to low doses of radiation says, point blank that the Fukushima Catastrophe is the worst nuclear disaster in history. He says that what is occurring in Japan is a virtual replay of what occurred in Chernobyl and surrounding Belarus, where the radioactive cesium destroyed the walls of the children’s developing heart muscles, affecting their electrical conductivity, resulting in early heart disease and deaths from same. The only difference between these two scenarios is that Fukushima is affecting far more people, which is why he calls it “the worst.” (11 minute video)

In a new development, the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) announced that it will require all 26 boiling water reactors (BWR) in Japan—the same type those that experienced full nuclear meltdowns during the Fukushima disaster—to install filtered vents in order to contain large releases of radioactive material in case of a nuclear disaster. Significantly, NRA Commissioner Toyoshi Fuketa stated that idled BWRs without filtered vents will not be allowed to restart until they have been retrofitted, a process that could be both expensive and time-consuming for utilities.

IAEA re-categorizes the operational status for 47 of Japan’s nuclear reactors. In an unprecedented move, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) retroactively re-categorized 47 Japanese nuclear reactors from “in operation” to “long-term shutdown” in its Power Reactor Information System. Thus, the global number of nuclear reactors listed as “in operation” drops from 437 to 390, a number not seen since Chernobyl-year 1986, when 391 operating units were on the list. Without a doubt, the step is a unique revision of world operational nuclear data — not to mention a solid recognition of the industrial reality in Japan.

Iranian Nuclear Power Plant Back At ‘Full Capacity’

Click onto this piece of art -Unsinkable, 2013
Depicts 67,000 mushroom clouds, equal to the number of metric tons of ultra-radioactive uranium/plutonium waste being stored in temporary pools at the 104 nuclear power plants across the U.S. These waste pools must be cooled with hundreds of thousands of gallons of constantly circulating water, and many plants have inadequate or nonexistent backup cooling systems in case of power loss. In the U.S. and around the world, the waste pools are under-protected, over-filled, and vulnerable to earthquakes, storms, malfeasance, and human error. In 1997 the Brookhaven National Laboratory estimated that a calamity at just one of these waste pools in the U.S. could cause 138,000 American deaths (more than the number of Japanese who died in the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima), and contaminate 2,000 square miles of our land.
Currently, the waste pool in Reactor Unit 4 at Japan’s Fukushima-Daiichi plant is at risk for collapse. The building is unstable, and the cracked and leaking pool contains 262 tons of ultra-radioactive uranium/plutonium waste. For months, Fukushima has been experiencing numerous earthquakes from magnitude 4.1 to 6.2, sometimes several per day. If a magnitude 7 earthquake were to occur, causing the Unit 4 waste pool to rupture and drain, the resulting meltdown and fires could release ten times more airborne radioactive material than was released by the Chernobyl disaster. At that point humans could no longer enter or operate the facility, potentially leading to a chain reaction of meltdown events at Fukushima’s five other units, releasing 85 times as much radiation as the Chernobyl disaster.
The United States lies downwind of Fukushima, only a few days across the Pacific via the jet stream. The jet stream would carry radioactive material into the interior of the United States, eventually circling the globe and reaching the entire northern hemisphere within weeks or months. The amount of radiation released “would destroy the world environment and our civilization,” according to Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy.

Book outlines efforts undertaken by anti-nuclear activists to oppose potential power plant.

This book is not about the merits of nuclear power in Alberta. The Fukushima disaster, the unwillingness of the community to host the project, soaring reactor costs and Atomic Energy of Canada Limited’s (AECL) repeated failures and eventual fragmentation put an end to that debate.
This is about the corrupt and self-serving practices of industry, governments and academia we encountered in Alberta while scrutinizing Bruce Power’s nuclear proposal. It is also a “how-to” book for communities who have to deal with major issues or threats.

U.S. Nuclear Regulators Divided on Costly Fukushima Rule.

The U.S. nuclear agency’s staff has recommended that the U.S. operators be required to upgrade emergency venting systems by installing filters that would capture radioactive particles. The filter requirement would be the most expensive imposed by U.S. nuclear regulators since Fukushima, at a cost of $16 million or more per reactor. With U.S. nuclear operators already contending with competition from power plants running on low-priced natural gas, the added expense could be “another chip away at the viability of the nuclear industry overall,” said Julien Dumoulin-Smith, a utility industry analyst with UBS.

Professor: Cesium in wild mushrooms not caused by Fukushima accident. Mushrooms have fungal filaments called hyphae, which extend into the ground and act like roots. A hypha easily absorbs radioactive cesium in the soil of forests, making wild mushrooms more likely to build up cesium than vegetables. It is from nuclear weapons tests conducted by the Soviet Union and China from the late 1940s to the late 1960s, and from the Chernobyl accident in 1986.

The Eternal Problem-Nuclear Waste Confidence-by RUSSELL D. HOFFMAN:
“I, on the other hand, didn’t like the word “confidence” since there’s nothing that warrants ANY confidence in this discussion, whatsoever. ”Waste Failure” would be more appropriate. Or “Waste Impasse” might be even better. Or better yet: ”The Intractable, Unsolvable, Filthy, Disgusting Mess We’ve Made” but I guess that would just be too accurate to a group where a “rapid disassembly” is the term for a core explosion that spews radioactive crud for miles around.”

Norwegian scientists said yesterday that they have found record high radioactivity in a reindeer shot in eastern Norway, nearly one year after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the Soviet Union. Scientists said tests showed that meat from the animal carried 98,500 becquerels per kilogram (2.2 lbs), far above the safety limits of 6,000 set by health authorities and that it must be destroyed as unfit for human consumption.
Our Takeaway: An accident at a nuclear plant near Kiev in the Ukraine contaminates a reindeer several hundred miles away to more than 15 times safe levels. Were all foodstuffs and water within range of Chernobyl’s fallout also monitored for contamination and prevented from being consumed, or have people unknowingly consumed harmful amounts of radioactivity?

Up a River Without a CleanupGovernment guts Rocketdyne cleanup imperiling L.A. River, misuse of $41.5 million EPA Rocketdyne study prompts calls for investigation

Part Five of EnviroReporter.com‘s special investigation “Boeing’s Meltdown Makeover.”
Long-awaited EPA study finds high radiation findings with cesium-137, strontium-90 and plutonium-239/240 hundreds to over 1,900 times background.
The federal EPA and DTSC ditch the agreement to cleanup SSFL to background levels of remediation.
Longtime activists call for investigation of the agency’s misappropriation of $41.5 million that was supposed to guide DTSC to cleanup to background.
Gary Polakovic, author Boeing’s plan to greenwash Rocketdyne, shows up at EPA meeting – confronts longtime cleanup advocate Dan Hirsch and embraces Boeing “third party” ally John Luker.
Rocketdyne sits at the headwaters of the Los Angeles River, and that waterway’s $2 billion revamp is in danger of derailment by the radioactive and chemical contamination continuing to ooze offsite. This could torpedo the 50-year Master Plan of the city of Los Angeles’ centerpiece.

The Environment Ministry says nearly 6,000 square kilometers of land across Japan have subsided by more than 2 centimeters in the last fiscal year. […]This level is judged to have a potential impact on buildings’ stability.
The ministry says Kesennuma in Miyagi Prefecture sank deepest by 73.8 centimeters, followed by Ichikawa in Chiba by 30.9 centimeters [Fukushima Prefecture NOT tested].
The ministry officials say the subsidence is attributable to last year’s March 11th earthquake. They have expressed concerns over the spread of subsidence and further damage to buildings.

Fukushima reactors “a ticking time bomb” — “Catastrophe beyond comprehension” if major pipe break or quake. (VIDEO)
“Realize that we have 5 reactors in various states of degradation in the area. The accident is not over by any means. The accident could start up all over again if there’s a secondary earthquake or another pipe break. In a worst case scenario, if there is a major pipe break or secondary earthquake, they would have to evacuate the workers and because the pumps are not working at the site, it means that you have to manually, manually, insert the water over the reactors and without the workers you would be in free fall. At that point with an evacuation of all the workers, water levels would begin to drop, the reactors would then start to melt again and we would breach containment – that is the release of uncontrolled amounts of radiation in to the environment. And that is a catastrophe beyond comprehension.”

Question: “So why doesn’t the international community…get heavily involved before this catastrophe takes place?”

Answer: There’s no-one left in charge. People that used to be ‘responsible’ for events such as this no longer work there. Virtually all government branches have been trained to help corporations maintain market share. Literally every government and corporate level spends its time making money. As if it were like food, clothing, shelter or love and kindness. Thus, the CFIA, DFO and many, many agencies simply respond and react to markets. If something is destroying the environment or the planet, it’s ‘externalized’ and dismissed as irrelevant. So no-one’s in charge. We’re on our own. This is what its like to live in an insane culture. Sadly, it is likely to affect everyone who is exposed to it.

More Lessons from the Fukushima Daiichi Accident: Containment Failures and the Loss of the Ultimate Heat Sink.

Arnie says there are three things that the NRC has ignored from the lessons from Fukushima and the NRC needs to acknowledge these:
1. The containment can leak.
2. A containment can be destroyed by a detonation shock wave – as happened at reactor #3 at Fukushima. NO reactor is built to withstand a detonation.
3. If the backup diesels get submerged under water, they will fail and this loss of the ultimate heat sink will cause a meltdown.

Fukushima firm ‘neglected safety’.

The operator of the disaster-struck Japanese nuclear power plant has acknowledged that the company long neglected safety measures intended to avoid and manage severe accidents while it was obsessed with fixing minor safety problems to improve operational records.

The task force said on Friday that TEPCO just did not think disasters beyond their anticipation would occur, and failed to follow international standards and recommendations that could have mitigated the impact of the accident. The utility could have done more to back up its power and cooling systems, was short on emergency equipment such as fire engines and had treated crisis management drills as a formality, the group said.

We’ve learned a considerable amount from the accident, identified numerous specific technical issues that require renewed attention, and made measurable progress in implementing improvements. But there is more work ahead and we are committed to working with Japan and other international partners to ensure long-term sustainability in the nuclear safety enhancements made since the accident.

The result, they warn, is that a process expected to take more than 30 years and cost at least $15 billion could take longer and cost more as contracts are channeled through domestic heavyweights such as nuclear reactor makers Toshiba Corp and Hitachi Ltd, and general contractors such as Taisei Corp.

The Disastrous Status Of Fukushima Daiich.
Workers can’t work in Buildings 1, 2 and 3 because the radiation is too intense.

Steel is corroding from saltwater, threatening pipes and pumps which cool the remains of three destroyed reactors.

Radiation is crumbling concrete onto dust.

Zirconium cladding is so corroded from seawater that it is doubtful that SFP 1, 2, 3 and 4 can ever be emptied.

Corium under Building 4 has cracked the foundation and the building is sinking unevenly.

Ground water contacting corium in the mudrock below Buildings1, 2 and 3 becomes highly contaminated, and flows directly into the Pacific Ocean, killing the Pacific Seafood Industry.

Hawaii milk is so contaminated that farmers are feeding boron to their cows.

Two US cities on RadiationNetwork.com right now measure over 60cpm of radiation in the air.

TEPCO seems to have lost track of the corium from 3 nuclear plants.

And then there are the two earthquakes of 6.2 and 7.3 which hit just offshore since midnight…

Not much information comes out of Japan about Fukushima anymore, and the American MSM seems to have forgotten what watered down reporting they had done earlier. But the human suffering has begun in Japan, and even the Japanese government is trying to pretend it’s not happening.

  1. Michael..what a great way to start a New Year! It is just way beyond terrific to have all of these important articles, with their links, all listed on one page. First of all, it is really impressive to see that there are so many recent articles that MUST be read, and second…it is wonderful not to have to go hunting for them. I just wish I had the time back that I have spent in the past, trying to locate these articles, in order to forward them to friends, in an attempt to inform and educate them as to the nuclear crisis that is going on, thanks to Fukushima. I just wish that the US Government would go and do likewise!
    While I know that there are certainly articles on this potential global disaster to be found in some small newspapers, I have not, so far, found anyone, anywhere, who has been tackling the whole Fukushima disaster, head on, as you have been doing. And, in addition, you have also written many articles, plus, now, a five part series, on our local nuclear and toxic chemical contamination on the Santa Susana Field Laboratory.
    I cannot believe how incredibly lucky that we all are to have you here in our midst, doing your knowledgeable environmental reporting, without which we would basically all be in the dark, when it comes to understanding and interpreting everything that has been happening in California, the USA, and the World. My hope is that in 2013, you, and also Denise, will continue to have the concern, energy and courage to keep investigating and writing about all of these issues, which affect the health and welfare of all of us.
    Meanwhile, 2012 grateful THANKS!
