Fukushima plant crisis could erupt if water injection stops
for 38 hrs http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/news/20111002p2g00m0dm021000c.html
(Kyodo) -- "Tokyo Electric Power Co. has released an estimate
that says if water injection at its stricken Fukushima No. 1
Nuclear Power Plant stops, its fuel rods could start melting
in 38 hours, causing radioactive substances to spew out.
utility said, however, it can resume watering at the Nos. 1
to 3 reactors in three hours at the most in case the plant is
hit by another earthquake and tsunami matching the scale of
the March 11 disaster that caused their core meltdowns.
estimate said the temperature of the fuel, now believed to have
solidified at the bottom of the reactors' pressure vessels,
would rise about 50 C each hour and reach its melting point
of 2,200 C in about 38 hours...."
HERE: The fuel is NOT in the reactor pressure vehicles.
continual lying is becoming very aggravating. While some fuel
may be still be in reactor 2 or 3, it is clear that the pressure
vessels have been breached and the fuel in reactor #1 is definitely
somewhere in the basement or below.
posted a few days ago that the radiation readings in reactor
1 were at 500 sieverts an hour; http://majiasblog.blogspot.com/2011/09/fukushima-reactor-1-radiation-spike.html
has been considerable discussion about the hydrogen build-up
at the plant in reactor 1; http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2011/09/fuku-i-hydrogen-gas-update-it-was-63.html
1 is obviously unstable and could, it appears, blow-up again
without any interruption in the water.
wish the disinformation would stop. I am so tired of the lies.
Why cannot governments realistically and objectively discuss
what is known? Why cannot governments provide objective risk
the truth of the situation so bad that all governments can provide
are lies and misinformation?
Unconfirmed Story From Fukushima Diary Illustrates Fukushima
nephew’s urine tested positive for cesium. He lives in
Suginami Ward [a suburb on the western side of Tokyo]. He forces
back his tears at preschool because [his parents have told him
that] he has to stay inside alone while the other kids play
sister and brother-in-law have been twice as careful as other
people with the food he eats since the accident. Despite taking
these precautious, cesium was detected in his urine.
my sister and her husband found out the results of his test,
they said they would go to Kyushu [in western Japan] to look
for a place to live.
my nephew’s body, the radionuclides don’t stop emitting
radiation. But he is just an innocent child. People would probably
rather not know, but we are in an extraordinary situation.
is no different to irresponsibility. Let’s do the things
that anyone would do, as a reasonable adult, or person."

Now In Pacific Ocean?, survivaljapan.wordpress.com
news agency reported that:
at the Meteorological Research Institute and the Central Research
Institute of Electric Power Industry estimated that the amount
of radioactive cesium-137 that was directly released into the
sea came to 3,500 terabecquerels from March to the end of May,
while estimating that roughly 10,000 terabecquerels fell into
the ocean after it was released into the air. [End of Kyodo
tera-Becquerels is the same as 10 peta-Becquerels. We know that
Fukushima continues to diffuse radioactivity in the atmosphere
so 6.5 months later, this amount of atmospheric Ocean contamination
could be linearly extrapolated to 25 peta-Becquerels.
we can add this atmospheric ocean pollution to our hypothetical
direct flow computed above and reach the figure of 1025 peta-Becquerels
– or roughly 1 exa-Becquerels – or, if you prefer,
a quintillion Becquerels (the atmospheric radioactive source
being a minor contributor in the end).
this rate of 2 exa-Becquerels per year dumped into the Ocean,
it would take 500 years to reach the next prefix, i.e. zetta-Becquerels,
which is out of our life timeframe. Hence, I think that the
new unit for nuclear disasters should be the exa-Becquerel –
and we maybe just have reached it for the Pacific Ocean.

Bq/Kg of Radioactive Cesium from Soil in Fukushima City,
EX-SKF, October 4, 2011
Judging from [Kobe University Professor Tomoya Yamauchi's]
radiation survey (in Japanese), this particular location
looks like the one that had 23 microsieverts/hour radiation
at 1 centimeter off the surface of the dirt in the roadside
drain. Professor Yamauchi hypothesized that radioactive cesium
from surrounding mountains and forests washes down the drain
after the rain, and naturally gets concentrated in the dirt.
my communication with Professor Yamauchi, I asked if the decontamination
as currently practiced in Fukushima works at all, given the
non-result in Watari District which he surveyed. [...]
also said that spraying water with high-pressure washers hardly
work at all on concrete and asphalt surfaces, as radioactive
cesium is now deeply embedded in the concretes and asphalt.
The only way to decontaminate concrete and asphalt, the professor
said, was to physically remove all concrete structures –
houses, fences, pavement, etc., which he said would destroy
the neighborhood. He is of the opinion that all the residents
in the district should be evacuated first, with the government
paying for the cost, and the experts should get to work to
truly “decontaminate”. [...]

soil found outside Fukushima no-go zone

— [excerpted] "High levels of radioactive contamination
have been found in soil in the capital of Japan’s Fukushima
prefecture, a study showed Wednesday, prompting calls to make
the area a voluntary evacuation zone.
307,000 becquerels of cesium per kilogram of soil was detected
in an independent survey conducted on Sept 14 by a radiological
engineering expert and citizens’ groups.
The Japanese government’s legal limit is 10,000 becquerels

Gov't panel eyes higher interim radiation exposure limit
government panel on reviewing radiation dose standards plans

instead of the current 1 millisievert limit, panel sources said

TEPCO starts sprinkling decontaminated water
Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, has started sprinkling
decontaminated water on the premises of the Fukushima nuclear
on Friday began spraying the water onto trees cut down and piled
on the plant's compound. The utility says dry trees could catch
water was taken from facilities for temporary storage of water
with low levels of radioactivity that had accumulated in the
basements of 2 reactor turbine buildings. The buildings did
not incur major damage in the March disaster.
facilities contain about 17,000 tons of such water, and are
filled to nearly 90 percent of their capacity."
wonders about the reason Tepco is doing this? Is it because
facilities for storing water are filled to "nearly 90%
of their capacity"?
that is the case, then this move to disperse the supposedly
decontaminated water could simply contribute to spreading radiation
is alrady burning radioactive debris and spreading contamination
further through the incineration.
entire country is becoming more and more contaminated and as
local politicians lie about the safety of produce, the nation's
food supply is becoming more and more compromised.
entire situation seems to be becoming more and more out of control.
It is truly insanity what is happening there.
the absence of any media coverage and testing in the US and
Canada demonstrate that the insanity is a contagion....
