Fukushima Radiation and Fallout Projections

4 - 10 September 2011

Editor's Note: I have listed radiation plume forecast charts on the web pages from 03-11 / 03-19 to 07-31 / 08-06. Unfortunately I have none to show on this web page because they have been discontinued by major weather services. In what may be interpreted as an act of major social irresponsibility, the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) discontinued its updates on May 11th, and the German Weather Service (DWD) discontinued its plume forecasts as well in early August 2011. But the biggest and most notorious cowards and criminals of all are at the highest levels of the Obama Administration and the City of London. First, we must consider Mossad-CIA and their highest level handlers (Rothschilds-City of London, Queen of England, British MI6) who in all likelihood sabotaged the Fukushima reactors with the Stuxnet virus. In addition, their "yes-man" Barack Hussein Obama II (or Barry Soetoro, or whatever) has refused to alert the public to this grave continuing danger, to include advising citizens to take the most basic protective measures necessary such as staying out of the rain. According to Leuren Moret (please see the transcript of Dr. James Fetzer's 18 July 2011 interview with her titled "Fukushima and the Global Danger"), the U.S. Department of Energy has completely misdirected the Japanese response. It has been so horribly inadequate and perverse that it may very well result in the total ruin and even genocide of most of the Japanese nation -- and much of our own as well. Given that many experts believe that the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986 caused the early deaths of over a million people in Europe in the twenty five years that followed -- and that the Fukushima catastrophe could be on the order of magnitude of more than a 100 to a 1,000 worse -- it is very possible that every month that this crisis continues over a million additional Americans get tagged with early deaths from cancer and other radiation-induced diseases. Worse yet, there is currently no end in sight. Please help us alert responsible individuals around the world regarding the urgent need to mobilize whatever resources are necessary to contain and mitigate this catastrophe as soon as possible.

* There’s a denial of the severity of the accident by the business community and government in Tokyo… they are ignoring and denying severity of problem…
* Some towns in the NW corridor received 50 rem of radiation, people in those towns received 50 rems.. that means there is almost a 50/50 chance of cancer… that information just came out now 6 months after accident…

2011-09-07 Fukushima Crisis Is Still Hazy: Chaos and bureaucracy hamper assessment of nuclear crisis by David Cyranoski, Geoff Brumfiel and Nature magazine, September 7, 2011
"The survey of 2,200 locations shows a roughly 35-kilometer-long strip northwest of the plant where levels of caesium-137 contamination seem to exceed 1,000 kilobecquerels per square metre. (After the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine, areas with more than 1,480 kilobecquerels per square metre were permanently evacuated by the Soviet authorities."
2011-09-09 High Levels Of Radiation Showing Up In Sea And Fukushima Residents,
Again flying in the face of TEPCO’s claims everything is fine, large levels of radiation are showing up in the region.
Some Fukushima residents based on their location after the melt downs received large radiation doses in the range of three times the national limit. The more shocking part is that they are from the 30km zone, not the 20km evacuation zone.
“The researchers estimated that radiation levels in the area during the two months before the evacuations came to 50 millisieverts.”
Some residents received doses from 57 to 69 mSv. Some parts of Fukushima City read at 3.2 mSv yet the city is trying to go on as business as usual.
Researchers at the JAEA have done their own estimates on sea releases during the early months and found levels at 15,000 terabecquerels. TEPCO estimated 4,720 terabecquerels. The JAEA readings were more complete thus the higher reading. TEPCO has had a pattern of taking certain readings in ways that would show a lower level of radiation as they ignore concentrating sources.
2011-09-10 Prof. Hiroaki Koide of Kyoto University: ‘Massive amounts of radioactive materials will be released into the environment again’ – Fukushima Reactor Core May Have Sunk Into The Ground – ‘We are now head to head with a situation that mankind has never faced before’, (Also archived at: 2011-09-09 "Kyoto U. expert..." by ENENEWS)
- Radiation expert says outcome of nuke crisis hard to predict, warns of further dangers (Mainichi Japan, Sep. 9, 2011):

As a radiation metrology and nuclear safety expert at Kyoto University’s Research Reactor Institute, Hiroaki Koide has been critical of how the government and Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) have handled the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant. Below, he shares what he thinks may happen in the coming weeks, months and years.
The nuclear disaster is ongoing. Immediately after the crisis first began to unfold, I thought that we’d see a definitive outcome within a week. However, with radioactive materials yet to be contained, we’ve remained in the unsettling state of not knowing how things are going to turn out.
Without accurate information about what’s happening inside the reactors, there’s a need to consider various scenarios. At present, I believe that there is a possibility that massive amounts of radioactive materials will be released into the environment again.
At the No. 1 reactor, there’s a chance that melted fuel has burned through the bottom of the pressure vessel, the containment vessel and the floor of the reactor building, and has sunk into the ground. From there, radioactive materials may be seeping into the ocean and groundwater.
The use of water to cool down the reactors immediately after the crisis first began resulted in 110,000 cubic meters of radiation-tainted water. Some of that water is probably leaking through the cracks in the concrete reactor buildings produced by the March 11 quake. Contaminated water was found flowing through cracks near an intake canal, but I think that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I believe that contaminated water is still leaking underground, where we can’t see it. Because of this, I believe immediate action must be taken to build underground water barriers that would close off the nuclear power plant to the outside world and prevent radioactive materials from spreading. The important thing is to stop any further diffusion of radioactive materials.
The government and plant operator TEPCO are trumpeting the operation of the circulation cooling system, as if it marks a successful resolution to the disaster. However, radiation continues to leak from the reactors. The longer the circulation cooling system keeps running, the more radioactive waste it will accumulate. It isn’t really leading us in the direction we need to go.
It’s doubtful that there’s even a need to keep pouring water into the No.1 reactor, where nuclear fuel is suspected to have burned through the pressure vessel. Meanwhile, it is necessary to keep cooling the No. 2 and 3 reactors, which are believed to still contain some fuel, but the cooling system itself is unstable. If the fuel were to become overheated again and melt, coming into contact with water and trigger a steam explosion, more radioactive materials will be released.
TEPCO says it is aiming to bring the No. 1, 2 and 3 reactors to cold shutdown by January 2012. Cold shutdown, however, entails bringing the temperature of sound nuclear fuel in pressure vessels below 100 degrees Celsius. It would be one thing to aim for this in April, when the government had yet to confirm that a meltdown had indeed taken place. But what is the point of “aiming for cold shutdown” now, when we know that fuel is no longer sound?
In the days ahead, the storage of enormous quantities of radiation-contaminated waste, including tainted mud resulting from the decontamination process, will become a major problem. Because the responsibility for spreading nuclear materials into the environment lies with TEPCO, it makes sense to bring all the radioactive waste to TEPCO headquarters in Tokyo.
Since that’s not possible, the waste should be taken to the grounds of the nuclear power plant. If the plant is not large enough to accommodate all the waste, then a location close to the plant will also have to be designated as a nuclear graveyard. However, no one should take advantage of the chaos and force Fukushima to host interim radioactive waste repositories for spent fuel from other nuclear power plants.
Recovering the melted nuclear fuel is another huge challenge. I can’t even imagine how that could be done. When the Three Mile Island accident took place in 1972, the melted nuclear fuel had stayed within the pressure vessel, making defueling possible. With Fukushima, however, there is a possibility that nuclear fuel has fallen into the ground, in which case it will take 10 or 20 years to recover it. We are now head to head with a situation that mankind has never faced before.

Truth? I Have No Idea
I'm raising questions.
I have no truths about the current listeria outbreak.
Let us see how the outbreak develops. If it is quickly contained, we know that unusual circumstances do not prevail.
If the outbreak spreads and seems to become more diffuse, then we need to start asking hard questions.
Majia has posted a number of articles describing how radiation mades mammals more susceptible to infectious diseases. See, for example, the following post at:
