Japan Today: Greenpeace urges tougher radiation screening, seafood labeling rules
[excerpted] "Greenpeace called on Tokyo to toughen radiation screening and food labeling rules on Thursday after it said low levels of radiation had been detected in seafood sold at Japanese stores.
The environmental pressure group said it tested 60 seafood samples bought at stores in eastern Japan operated by five major supermarket chains and found 34 of them with radioactive cesium-134 and cesium-137."

2011-10-24 Fukushima Steaming and What About Reactors 5 and 6?,
hat tip Sickputer at Enenews for finding this one of Fukushima Steaming
Fukushima Diary has posted that there is evidence that reactors 5 and 6 are now having significant problems also (are in "crisis")
see also Enenews discussion
Potrblog is reporting on google mapping of strontium and plutonium in Japan
Enformable has posted data on radiation in Japan collected by the NNSA (U.S.)
And if the Fukushimas are not enough to tip us into permanent crisis, all it could take would be a strong geomagnetic storm hitting earth directly.
The Watchers is reporting that a strong EMP hit Earth today. Today's wasn't disruptive of our electronics (that we know of), but the possibility exists that a strong EMP could take down many electrical devices and grids
2011-10-27 AND NOW: Japanese Government BURNS HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE SOIL In New Experiment To Remove Radioactive Cesium,
You can’t make this stuff up!
Prof. Chris Busby was right:
- GENOCIDE: Prof. Chris Busby Exposes The Sinister Agenda Behind The Japanese Government Trucking Higly Radioactive Material From The Fukushima Area ALL OVER JAPAN To Burn It

- New “Decon” Experiment in Iitate-Mura: Burn Radioactive Soil (EX-SKF, October 26, 2011):
The Japanese government has just started a new experiment in the very highly contaminated Iitate-mura in Fukushima Prefecture where the soil contamination exceeds 50,000 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium, with a host of other nuclides including strontium and neptunium which has since decayed into plutonium.
What’s the experiment? To burn the radioactive soil to reduce the bulk for disposal.
What’s this Japanese obsession with “decontamination” and with “incineration”? Do they think they can somehow “purify” the radioactive fallout by burning? (Hint: this is a rhetorical question. Answer is yes of course.)
The nuclear researchers at the government’s JAEA seem to think burning the soil will revive the soil.
It will kill the soil.
From Kyodo News Japanese (10/26/2011):

On October 26, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (located in Tokai-mura, Ibaraki Prefecture) showed off its new experiment to see if radioactive cesium could be effectively removed by burning the farm soil in Iitate-mura in Fukushima Prefecture. The experiment is aimed at reviving the farm fields contaminated by the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident.
It is part of the soil remediation technology development as assigned by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. JAEA and National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (in Tsukuba City, Fukushima Prefecture) are jointly conducting the research. The result of the experiment will be known in 2 to 3 weeks.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, if all the farm soil with 5000 becquerels/kg and higher [of radioactive cesium] is removed in Fukushima Prefecture, it would fill 2 to 3 Tokyo Domes, or about 3 million tonnes. How to dispose the removed soil is a big issue.

Let’s assume the lowest number, 5,000 becquerels/kg of radioactive cesium in the Fukushima farm soil. 1 tonne is 1000 kilograms. So,

* 1 tonnes contains: 5 million becquerels of radioactive cesium
* 3 million tonnes contains: 1.5 x 10^13, or 15 terabecquerels, or 15,000,000,000,000 becquerels.

If the national government’s much-publicized past experiments (like planting sunflowers to absorb radioactive materials in soil) in Iitate-mura are any indication, this one may also fail.
Besides, by strongly encouraging farmers outside the no-entry evacuation zone and the planned evacuation zone (like Iitate-mura) in Fukushima to grow crops as usual, the soil was probably turned deep, mixing radioactive materials with deeper, clean soil. So, removing the top 5 centimeters are likely to do hardly anything other than making people feel good that they have done the “decontamination”.
There are areas and spots with high radiation outside Fukushima Prefecture, but those are none of the concern for the national government, although it has said it may consider the national-level decontamination for the areas with expected annual radiation exposure (external only) of more than 1 millisievert.-
2011-10-28 The Silence Is Deafening by Dr. Mark Sircus
2011-10-28 AND NOW: 110 Microsieverts Per Hour Detected At Tokyo Supermarket,
In Setagaya, Tokyo, ward mayor held an emergency press conference at 10PM, 10/28/2011.
They announced that they measured 110 micro Sv/h near a supermarket, “Powerlarks Setagaya” in Setagaya Yawatayama.
Now they are conducting the further investigation with Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology to deceive us as soon as possible.
According to their announcement, at 1PM of 10/28/2011, a citizen reported that they found a hot spot.
Setagaya ward reported this citizen recording to the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
Then the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology measured it and they report that they found:

* 4.7 micro Sv/h at 1m high from the ground
* 10 micro Sv/h at 1m high from the ground
* 110 micro Sv/h
* 30~40 micro Sv/h on the ground.

If an average citizen measured it, it might be way higher.
2011-10-27 (for around this date) Arnie Gunderson Interview with Dr. Helen Caldicott,, November 17, 2011
I finally had a chance to listen to this interview that was conducted in late October on Dr. Caldicott's Radio Show, If You Love This Planet.
Arnie states in this interview that the official daily-atmospheric releases from Fukushima are presently 10 trillion becquerels per day.
They were (officially) at 13 trillion becquerels a day, but the tent on building 1 has reduced the quantity of radiation released.
In this interview, Arnie and Helen also note that the noble gasses released by the Fukushima disaster constitute the greatest release of noble gasses in history, excluding releases by nuclear bombs.
Noble gasses like Zenon and Krypton bombard the environment with Xrays and also decay into isotopes such as Iodine-131 and Cesium, which then emit more radiation.
Gunderson feels that the policy in Japan has been to be:
One save the government
Two save Tepco
Last save the people of Japan
He states that the accident is being minimized here in the US as well.
I have to stop and go teach class. I'll post any additional comments about the interview when I conclude listening to it.

2011-10-29 Ocean Absorbed 79 Percent Of Fukushima Fallout – ‘High Concentrations’ Reached North America And Europe (Forbes, Oct. 29, 2011)

North America

Porterblog video dated Sunday October 23 describes recent detection of Iodine-133 in St Loius rain-water and compares it with detection of Neptunium-239 in rain-water on October 10.
The most recent detection is of Iodine-133 and Zenon-133.
Potrblog states that the exposure levels in the precipitation are 2.76 millirem an hour
(27.6 microsieverts an hour according to calculator I found here
Potrblog states that the “Troubling thing is we were not warned”
“There are things to do to protect against iodine fallout”
He notes that since the Iodine 133 has a 20 hour half life, there was a lot coming from Fukushima
EPA has been giving no data on iodine detection since March
Rain concentrates fallout
Potrblog describes the radioactive fallout cycle of first Neptunium 239 (Oct 10) and then the Iodine-133 (last week) that he believes derives from the on-off criticality of the corium in the ground water.
The Criticality Cycle stems from corium in ground water, which is creating a cycle of a neutron feast and neutron famine.
High Levels of criticality produce Neutron feast: Neutron bombardment creating neptunium-239 that decays into plutonium-239.
Something happens to change conditions leading to a neutron famine.
Neutron Famine: Iodine and zenon then get produced. Iodine-133 and zenon-133 absorb neutrons and thereby temporarily reduces intensity of criticality.
Alternating cycle of neutron feast and neutron famine explains the fallout Potrblog is detecting in St Louis.
He says that it is possible that this on-off cycle could produce a large explosion but says he lacks access to the data and the modeling to allow him to predict the likelihood of an explosion.
When is it risk mitigating to have an explosion to “de-criticalize” what is happening there he asks again?
My opinion is that the Potrblog team knows what they are talking about. This video uses data from the jet stream, the EPA, and detailed mathematical analysis of decay chains to support its claims and encourages viewers to offer alternative interpretations of the data.
