Japan etc.

Today is 1st Anniversary of Fukushima Nuclear Tragedy.

Currently 52 of 54 Japanese reactors are shut down and on the main island Honshu only a single unit remains in operation. Attempts to restart reactors encounter fierce opposition by local authorities and citizens. A nationwide campaign to abandon nuclear power has collected five million signatures and over 10,000 people attended a “Global Conference for a Nuclear Power Free World” in Yokohama in January 2012, followed by an additional 100,000 via live streaming on the internet.

The impact of the disaster in Japan on global nuclear industry statistics is significant, the nuclear renaissance is terminated.

Fukushima children are having heart attacks

European Committee on Radiation Risk

Non cancer effects at Fukushima following internal exposure

Chris Busby, 9th September 2011

“We have recently heard that children in the Fukushima contamination area have been suffering heart attacks. This is a predictable development and is a consequence of internal contamination of heart
muscle with Caesium-137 and other radionuclides. The effects were discovered by Yuri Bandashevsky in children in the higher contamination areas around Gomel.
Bandashevsky found cardiac pathologies correlated with whole body Caesium measurements carried out by the late Prof W Nesterenko. The clinical symptom is cardiac arrhythmia which precedes heart attacks. For this reason it is recommended that all children in the contamination zone (up to 100km or areas where contamination measured) are checked by ECG regularly so that appropriate treatment may be carried out… ”

Atomic Bomb Survivors Join Nuclear Opposition

6-08-2011. Japanese Light Lanterns, some of them with antinuclear messages, were released Saturday in Hiroshima. Survivors of the atomic bombings of 1945 hope to use their moral standing to wean Japan off nuclear power.

Japanese government kills their own people around Fukushima and exports death technologies for profit

On the 19th of July 2011, people in Fukushima had a meeting with government officials from Tokyo to demand government to evacuate people pfrom Fukushima and provide financial and logistical support. They brought urine of children to the meeting and demanded the government to test it. None of the demands were satisfied.

Video on Youtube:
Alexey Yablokov  and Chris Busby participated in the International Radioactivity Risk Kongress in Berlin 6-8.03.2011
Alexey Yablokov´s with colleges V. B. Nesterenko and A. V. Nesterenko estimation of 1,5 million early deaths in the afte Chernobyl period until 2004.
Yablokov mentions even his college Khudoley, V.V. from N. N. Petrov’ Research Institute of Oncology, Center of Independent Environmental Expertise, Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg, Russia.
Yablokov urges to establish rad-monitoring of foods and water, mentioning even marine life forms. He offers the sufficient experience from Chernobyl in areas of Bio Technologies. In the very end of this sequence he even points out the crucial need of independent civil systems for measurement of radiation as industry and state constantly conceal the data, being trapped in the current systems. Yablokov strikes that data based on the ICRP estimation of dose are unscientific and incorrect, leaving governments with unreliable risk estimation models. He even  informs that the radioactive milk could be reprocessed to be safe again, as there are BioTechnolgies developed for that.
Pr Chris Busby is asked by Yablokov and the Austrian  radio reporter on the estimations of victims in Japan. At least 400.000 cancers in next 50 years in the 200 km radium fr Fukushima, is the estimation using  the more reliable ECRR-model(www.euradcom.org and http://www.bsrrw.org/?page_id=83 ). Estimation is based even on the epidemiology method of Swedish researchers Martin Tondel etc (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1732641/pdf/v058p01011.pdf ). Anyway it is clear underestimation as it is made on the unreliable IAEA data reports, that might be many times higher in reality. The risks on fertility and other disease are not estimated in this number.
Busby discuses Fukusima catastrophy as a global problem caused by systemic global encouragement on nuclear industry investments and US reactor sales.
Busby´s prediction for Europeans is relaxing regarding Fukushima fallout, so far. He alarms China, Korea etc areas.
The IAEA official ICRP radiation risk model is incorrect by several orders of magnitude, ECRR model is to be used.

If Chernobyl’s Cesium Fallout were Presented the Fukushima way…

May 20, 2011 by Michaël V.B.
Going on the previous post, I improved my legend to translate one color coded fallout map into another.  Where the range overlaps, I chose the colors approximately in the middle between the two ends.  The result is striking.  If Chernobyl were presented with the MEXT/DOE color legend… it would appear… a LOT LESS Serious…
Japanese government is not evacuating the citizens as IAEA is not reporting the risks!!! The Health of at least 400.000 people will be the Cost for the Nuclear Industry Conspiracy  if evacuations do not take place NOW!

Demonstrations of protesters who demand possibility to leave Japan NOW!

Radiation Readings in Fukushima Reactor
Rise to Highest Since Crisis Began

By Tsuyoshi Inajima and Michio Nakayama, Bloomberg, Apr 27, 2011
Radiation readings at Japan’s Fukushima Dai-Ichi station rose to the highest
since an earthquake and tsunami knocked out cooling systems, impeding
efforts to contain the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl.
Two robots sent into the reactor No. 1 building at the plant yesterday took
readings as high as 1,120 millisierverts of radiation per hour, Junichi
Matsumoto, a general manager at Tokyo Electric Power Co., said today.
That’s more than four times the annual dose permitted to nuclear workers
at the stricken plant.

[Note: these are measurements of the penetrating gamma radiation only;
they do not include the less-penetrating beta and alpha radiation. (GE)]

Radiation from the station, where four of six reactors have been damaged
by explosions, has forced the evacuation of tens of thousands of people
and contaminated farmland and drinking water.

A plan to flood the containment vessel of reactor No. 1 with more water to
speed up emergency cooling efforts announced yesterday by the utility
known as Tepco may not be possible now.

“Tepco must figure out the source of high radiation,” said Hironobu Unesaki,
a nuclear engineering professor at Kyoto University. “If it’s from
contaminated water leaking from inside the reactor, Tepco’s so-called
‘water tomb’ may be jeopardized because flooding the containment vessel
will result in more radiation in the building.”

[Note: This is not clearly stated.  If the containment vessel is flooded
while it is leaking, there will be more radioactive material “flushed out” from
the damaged core, leading to an increase in penetrating gamma radiation
levels outside the vessel but still inside the containment building. (GE)]

Decontaminating Robots

Tepco plans to decontaminate the two iRobot Corp. Packbot robots before
sending them into a building tomorrow or later to further investigate the
damage, spokesman Takeo Iwamoto said. High radiation in the reactor
buildings prevents engineers from working inside them, Iwamoto said.

The cores in reactors 1, 2 and 3 and the spent fuels rods in reactor 4 have
been damaged. Tepco has been using fire trucks, concrete pumps and other
emergency measures for nearly seven weeks to pour millions of liters of
water to cool the units after the accident.

Tepco started moving the radioactive water, which leaked to the basements
and trenches, to a waste storage facility on April 19. Tepco transferred 1.89
million liters of the water from the trenches near reactor No. 2 as of 7 a.m.
today, Iwamoto said. The utility plans to install a second pump after
transferring 2.5 million liters.

Tepco shares fell 3.3 percent to 412 yen today in Tokyo. The shares are
down about 80 percent since the quake and tsunami struck on March 11,
leaving almost 26,000 people dead or missing.

Less Damage

Reactors 1 and 2 are less damaged than estimated, Tepco said in a
statement today.

As much as 55 percent of the No. 1 reactor core at the Fukushima
Dai-Ichi station was damaged, compared with its earlier estimate of
70 percent.

“We revised the core damage data because some readings on the
containment vessel monitors were wrong,” Matsumoto said. “There was
also a recording mistake. We are investigating why this happened.”

The assessment for the No. 2 reactor was cut to 25 percent from 35
percent, while that for the No. 3 unit was raised to 30 percent from 25

“It seems a reasonable estimate that three reactor cores may be
damaged to a similar extent,” said Unesaki. The new estimate “doesn’t
indicate lower or higher risks at the plant.”

Radiation in Tokyo’s water supply fell to undetectable levels for the first
time since March 18, the capital’s public health institute said today.

The level of iodine-131 in tap water fell to zero yesterday, and cesium-134
and cesium-137 also weren’t detected, the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute
of Public Health said today.

[Iodine-131, cesium-134 and cesium-137 are man-made radioactive poisons
that can only come from irradiated nuclear fuel.  Iodine-131 has a  half-life
of about 8 days, so it will be completely gone from the environment in a few
months.  Cesium-134 has a half-life of about 2 years, so it will be completely
gone from the environment after a few decades.
Cesium-137 has a half-life of 30 years, so it will not be completely gone from the environment until several centuries have elapsed. (GE)]
Tokyo residents were told on March 23 that the city’s water was unsafe for
infants after iodine and cesium levels exceeded guidelines

Risk From Spent Nuclear Reactor Fuel Is Greater in U.S. Than in Japan, Study Says

By MATTHEW L. WALD.    May 24, 2011
WASHINGTON — The threat of a catastrophic release of radioactive materials from a spent fuel pool at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi plant is dwarfed by the risk posed by such pools in the United States, which are typically filled with far more radioactive material, according to a study released on Tuesday by a nonprofit institute.
The report, from the Institute for Policy Studies, recommends that the United States transfer most of the nation’s spent nuclear fuel from pools filled with cooling water to dry sealed steel casks to limit the risk of an accident resulting from an earthquake, terrorism or other event.
“The largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet will remain in storage at U.S. reactor sites for the indefinite future,” the report’s author, Robert Alvarez, a senior scholar at the institute, wrote. “In protecting America from nuclear catastrophe, safely securing the spent fuel by eliminating highly radioactive, crowded pools should be a public safety priority of the highest degree.”
