Radiation levels in seabed off Fukushima ‘100s of times’ higher than prior to disaster – Greenpeace

The amount of radioactive substances in seabed off Fukushima is hundreds of times higher than before the disaster, a report issued by Greenpeace reveals. The figures mean that there is absolutely “no return to normal after nuclear catastrophe” in the area.

On Thursday, the environmental group released a report addressing the results of the study during which scientists analyzed radioactivity levels along Fukushima’s rivers and in the Pacific seabed off the coast.

In first, Tepco admits ice wall can’t stop Fukushima No. 1 groundwater

The much-hyped ice wall at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant has failed to stop groundwater from flowing in and mixing with highly radioactive water inside the wrecked reactor buildings, operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings Inc. has admitted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Long time readers will recall I predicted this would be an epic fail.

Fukushima Daiichi Decommissioning Takes A Horrible Turn

NHK reports that the decommissioning authority in charge of dealing with the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster is now considering a sarcophagus to entomb the failed reactors rather than attempting to remove the melted fuel, debris and buildings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is that the sarcophagus only covers the top. The bottom is still open to the soil, just feet above the water table.

Extended Blackouts: Power Grid Completely Vulnerable to Sabotage: “America Could Go Dark”

The 21st Century is run off of electricity, and in the United States, that electric grid is woefully out of date – and that has left the country quite vulnerable.

The U.S. electric system is in danger of widespread blackouts lasting days, weeks or longer through the destruction of sensitive, hard-to-replace equipment.

“Virtually any region would suffer major, extended blackouts if more than three key substations were destroyed.”

EPA literally wants you to DIE from radiation: Agency raising the limit of radioactive elements in drinking water by over 3,000 times... to cause widespread cancer and death

We really have reached a point of such insanity across human civilization that governments have become the terrorists who actively seek to harm and kill off the people. The latest example demonstrating this very point is the fact that the EPA just announced its plan to allow gigantic increases in the allowable radioactivity in drinking water... increasing it by over 3,000 times in the case of radioactive Iodine-131... while calling it "safe" to drink even though it's almost certain to give you cancer.

There’s No Covering Up This One — Visible Pollution Leaking From NY Nuclear Plant

US Coast Guard officials have cordoned off a portion of Lake Ontario this week, after aerial spotters found a visible “sheen” that is coming from a nuclear power plant in upstate New York.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary aircrew first noticed the sheen on Sunday. Shortly after, a boat crew from the Oswego station tested the sheen and a “temporary safety zone” was put in place.

The Free Thought Project spoke to the Coast Guard Sector Buffalo Command Center on Tuesday and confirmed that the zone was still closed off, and there is no information as to when it will reopen.

Fukushima 3/11 Breeds Cynicism

There’s an old saying “disasters bring out the best in people,” but Fukushima 3/11 of March 11, 2011 has put an exclamation point on cynicism rather than heartfelt concern.

Similar to America’s experience of outright lies by its government about the Iraqi Massacre, the blowback of cynicism and contempt bring forth a strain of populism, rejecting establishment, attracting lowly dishonorable politics, as America gooses-up an abomination!

New Report Exposing Coverup of Fukushima Proves Conspiracy Theorists Right

By Claire Bernish

According to a new report, the Japanese government worked in concert with TEPCO to purposely cover up the meltdown at Fukushima in 2011.

“I would say it was a coverup,” Tokyo Electric Power Company President Naomi Hirose announced during a press conference. “It’s extremely regrettable.”

Masataka Shimizu, president of TEPCO at the time of the earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent nuclear disaster, told employees not to go public with the term “meltdown” — allegedly in capitulation to pressure from the Prime Minister’s Office...

Tepco head apologizes for 3/11 ban issued on ‘meltdown’

The head of Tokyo Electric Power Co. apologized Tuesday over his predecessor’s order to not use the term “core meltdown” to describe the situation at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant in the early days of the March 2011 crisis.

“It is extremely regrettable. People are justified in thinking it as a coverup,” Tepco President Naomi Hirose said at a news conference in Tokyo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this explosion happened...

Tepco claimed it was a hydrogen gas explosion. But when hydrogen burns, it produces water vapor, which is white. The plume was brown and as we pointed out...

... matches the color of the quadrivalent form of Plutonium Dioxide!

U.S Court of Appeals upholds rule on nuclear waste storage

The Prairie Island Indian Community was disappointed yet again in their quest to rid the island of spent nuclear fuel as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia on Friday upheld a 2014 ruling allowing the continual onsite storage of the radioactive material.

Prairie Island Indian Community joined several states and environmental agencies to appeal the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Continued Storage Rule, which was rejected, and it was concluded nuclear waste can be stored onsite indefinitely.

Expert: Humanity faces growing threat of accidental or erroneous missile launches

Modernization of systems of access to nuclear missiles is one of the most vital security issues, Vladimir Lukin, Russia’s former human rights ombudsman and a member of the Supervisory Council of the International Luxembourg Forum, told journalists on Wednesday. "In addition to that, there is also a cybernetic problem when someone can intentionally distort the information about issued orders. A multi-tier system of access is functioning; dangerous situations may emerge at any tier. This problem is very serious. Experts constantly study possibilities for improving this system". Lukin said that nuclear disarmament remained the most urgent international problem. "Negotiations should be conducted both bilaterally - between Russia and the United States - as well as at a multilateral level among nuclear powers". "Reykjavik: 30 Years After - Lessons of the Past and Tasks for the Immediate Future" conference is taking place in Amsterdam on June 7-8.

Fukushima and Nuclear Power: Does the Advertising Giant Dentsu Pull the Strings of Japan’s Media?

French journalist Mathieu Gaulène describes the business practices of Dentsu and its competitor Hakuhodo, the biggest and the second biggest advertising companies of Japan respectively. Specifically, it examines how their close relations to the media and the nuclear industry play out in the wake of the 3.11 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. Focusing Dentsu, Gaulène discusses how the marketing and public relations (PR) giant has dominated major media which large advertising contracts from the nuclear industry. The article is particularly timely as Dentsu unveils its deep ties to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic bid and the Panama Papers. Regrettably, however, with rare exceptions, there is little media coverage of the influence of Dentsu in mainstream Japanese newspapers and magazines.

What Hell Is Coming? Even Obama Is Warning Americans ‘To Prepare For Disaster’

Barack Obama doesn’t open his mouth unless it is to spin propaganda for an agenda. If disaster comes, will it be a false flag terror event, mega-natural disaster or total episode of civil unrest combined with martial law coming to America soon?

If Obama is the one telling you to get prepared for disaster, then it might already be too late. Obama stated:

One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.

Fukushima Nuclear Waste Annihilates Pacific Ecosystem

The langostilla kill-off cannot be called an act of nature since my dosimeter detected radiation levels of between 0.12 microSieverts per hour and 0.18 micSv in their bodies. The official safety level for human health set by the pro-nuclear government of Japan is 0.11. Considering the difference in body weight and the water content in their flesh, these marine creatures were terminated by radioactive exposure.

An American Fukushima May Be Closer Than You Think

The 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was horrific to watch unfold. It will take decades — and billions of dollars — to clean up, as more problems seem to emerge by the minute.

Most recently, Tepco announced that it’s still missing a large amount of spent fuel — in part because radiation remains so high that robots and other devices cannot function inside the plant to give workers a better picture of what’s going on.

The World’s Most Expensive “Thing” – It’s British, a Financial Disaster And Will Affect Us All

This power station has been described as the most expensive single “thing” on earth, although other power projects such as energy ports come even more expensive. Originally budgeted to cost around £14 billion three years ago, then £18 billion last year and revised up to nearly £22 billion this year. The EU Commission has estimated its final cost to be £24 billion.

Electricité de France or EDF the French state owned energy company is the biggest stakeholder. The project to build this power station is more expensive than the entire market capitalisation value of EDF and is effectively one huge gamble, and a gamble in more ways than one.

America's nuclear guinea pigs: Astonishing film that shows how Marines were used to test atomic weapons

They were the nuclear guinea pigs of the Cold War.

And this is the shocking film to show how U.S. Marines were used in hundreds of experiments by the US military to test the limits of nuclear bombs between 1951 and 1957.

During many of those tests, soldiers who thought of themselves as ‘ground grunts’ and were sworn to secrecy witnessed the atomic explosions first-hand, and from close range, before the devastating health risks of those bombs were fully understood.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government did in fact know the health risks due to accidents that happened during the development of the bomb.

Hanford Nuclear Reservation to become a Park?

Hanford nuclear reservation is a barren 586 square mile site nesting against southwest reaches of the mighty Columbia River. It was founded in 1942 as part of the Manhattan Project, the project to build the world's first nuclear bomb. The site was ideal because of its isolation, unlimited water supply, and dry desert-like climate allowing for quick, easy construction developments. Today it represents a legacy of science gone mad, and a site dogged by waste and fraud.

$375M settlement reached in homeowner lawsuit against Rocky Flats

Thousands of homeowners who lived downwind of the former Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant and the operators of the controversial facility have settled a lawsuit to the tune of $375 million, more than a quarter century after the legal action was first filed.

The settlement, which must be approved by a federal judge, brings to an end a 26-year legal saga that began when homeowners living east of Rocky Flats accused the plant's operators, Rockwell International Corp. and Dow Chemical Co., of devaluing their properties due to plutonium releases from the plant.

The lawsuit, which included as many as 15,000 homeowners in an area largely encompassing neighborhoods surrounding Standley Lake, was first filed in 1990.

In court papers filed Wednesday, the lawsuit was described as "quite possibly the largest docket of any District of Colorado case to date."

OFFICIALS FOR HANFORD NUCLEAR RESERVATION TRYING TO DETERMINE IF SECOND GIANT TANK CONTAINING RADIOACTIVE WASTE IS LEAKING

Officials for the Hanford Nuclear Reservation are trying to determine if a second giant underground tank containing radioactive waste from the production of plutonium for nuclear weapons is leaking, the U.S. Department of Energy revealed on Tuesday. Air monitors attached to an aging tank known as AY-101 recently found radiation at higher than normal background levels, the agency said. A video inspection of the underground tank found no evidence that radioactive waste had leaked from the primary tank into the space between the two walls, Hanford officials said. A Hanford watchdog group on Tuesday contended the higher radiation found by the air monitors was evidence of a leak in a second tank.

On the 30th anniversary of the world’s worst nuclear catastrophe yet, a new report shows radioactive contamination from the 1986 explosion at Chernobyl in Ukraine still lingers in startlingly large amounts across the border in neighboring Belarus.

In an exclusive report by the Associated Press, fresh milk from a Belarusian dairy farm contained a radioactive isotope, traceable to the Chernobyl disaster, at “levels 10 times higher than the nation’s food safety limits” — thirty years after the accident occurred.

Though the AP turned to a laboratory to test the milk, dairy farmer Nikolai Chubenok called the results “impossible.”...

Japan faces fresh earthquake panic as 6.1 magnitude tremor hits coast near Fukushima nuclear plant

Japan was plunged into fresh panic today as a 6.1 magnitude tremor hit the northern coast - the third major earthquake within a week.

The tremors struck near the northern island on Honshu around 60 miles southeast on Sendai.

To the dismay of rattled survivors, the latest quake happened close to the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster - which saw 15,000 killed in March 2011.

Devastating Radioactive Leak In Washington’s Hanford Nuclear Facility Sparks Outrage

By Brianna Blaschke

A nuclear leak in Washington has allowed for 3,500 gallons of radioactive waste to be released – and the federal government is trying to claim no harm will come.

A massive radioactive leak was discovered this past Sunday at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington. Officials have stated that the original container holding the radioactive material has slowly been trickling out roughly 70 gallons since 2011, though they have not determined what accelerated the problem. They are set to begin pumping an estimated 3,000-3,500 gallons of waste back into storage containers...

Chernobyl On The Hudson Causing a Massive Spike in Thyroid Cancer

Buchanan, New York is a town in the United States where tens of thousands of people have been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer, and it sits just 35 miles from New York City. Also nearby is the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant, which is situated on the Hudson River and serves the electricity needs of approximately 2 million people, with two working reactors which have operated since the mid 1970s.

For years, the public has been told that nuclear power is a safe and clean alternative to other fuels, but the people of Indian Point and surrounding areas know those claims are untrue, and it appears they are now paying the price of all the failed promises of nuclear energy.

Thyroid Cancer rates, in and around this area, have seen a huge spike in the last 15 years. Some say as many as 20,000 thyroid cancer cases.

Unprecedented: Germany asks Belgium to turn off 2 nuclear reactors over safety concerns

Germany has asked Belgium to take two of its nuclear reactors offline, citing safety concerns. The environment minister said doing so would show that Brussels “takes the concerns of its German neighbors seriously.”

Barbara Hendricks urged Belgium on Wednesday to take its Tihange 2 and Doel 3 reactors offline “until open safety questions are cleared up.” German officials have expressed concerns over the safety of the reactor pressure vessels.

Georgia busts 6 for illegally selling uranium-238

Georgia has arrested six people on charges of trying to sell $200 million worth of radioactive substance uranium-238, the country’s security service says.

“Officers of Georgia's State Security Service detained three citizens of Armenia and three citizens of Georgia… for planning to sell the nuclear material,” said security service investigator Savle Motiashvili in a news briefing on Monday.

The prefabricated transportation containers full of uranium were found in one of the detainee's apartment, he further said without disclosing the precise amount of the radioactive material.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Uranium 238 is the most common isotope of uranium, and not fissile, i.e. it is not the uranium used to make nuclear weapons. It can be used to make reactor fuel rods. Current spot price is $20 per pound, so they would need 10 million pounds of it to reach a value of $200 million ... which makes the entire story suspect.

Parent's worst nightmare: Wave of babies born in Japan with extra arms and legs due to Fukushima radiation... Stillbirth numbers on the rise

Five years after the Fukushima nuclear accident, local residents are reporting a marked increase in serious birth defects, but due to an ongoing coverup by Japanese authorities, and a severe lack of scientific studies being performed, very little information on the subject is reaching the public.

A February, 2016 broadcast on LaborNet TV featured interviews with evacuees from the affected areas near the Daiichi nuclear plant, who provided firsthand accounts of babies being born with extra limbs caused by a structural birth defect called polymelia.

Leak worsens in massive Hanford tank holding nuclear waste

A leak in a massive nuclear waste storage tank at the Hanford Site has expanded significantly, KING 5 learned this weekend.

After leak detector alarms sounded early Sunday morning, crews at Hanford lowered a camera into the two-foot-wide space between the tank's inner and outer walls. They discovered 8.4 inches of radioactive and chemically toxic waste has seeped into the annulus.

The U.S. Department of Energy released a statement Monday calling the leak an "anticipated" outcome of an ongoing effort to empty the tank in question. The Washington state Department of Ecology said, "There is no indication of waste leaking into the environment or risk to the public at this time."

But one former tank farm worker said the leak should be considered a major problem.

Disasters waiting to happen: 8 most dangerous nuclear plants near earthquake fault lines

The Japanese government says there won’t be any catastrophic damage, this time, at its nuclear facilities following Thursday night’s devastating earthquake and subsequent aftershocks.

Nine people are confirmed dead and more than 1,000 others injured after a 6.5-magnitude quake hit east of the city of Kumamoto.

The disaster revived terrifying memories of the Fukushima disaster, when a 15-meter post-quake tsunami caused a nuclear meltdown that polluted a sizeable portion of the country for decades.

Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga confirmed that there were no abnormalities at any nuclear facilities in the area, the Japan Times reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, the Japanese government wasn't exactly forthcoming with the true scale of the damage at Fukushima at the time it happened!

The Pentagon’s Counter-Zombie Martial Law Plan: ‘Concentrate Firepower to the Head’

And whether it seems like a joke or not, the Pentagon has a document preparing its forces for the remote possibility – or perhaps imminent cult film future pre-programmed through the media – of an all-out Zombie apocalypse.

“Given the likelihood of an all out threat to ‘human survival’, it is likely that this plan will be executed with a declaration of martial law with CONUS and U.S. territories.

[...]

“The only assumed way to effectively cause casualties to the zombie ranks by tactical force is the concentration of all firepower to the head, specifically the brain.”

Japan prepares for release of tritium from Fukushima plant

To dump or not to dump a little-discussed substance is the question brewing in Japan as it grapples with the aftermath of the nuclear catastrophe in Fukushima five years ago. The substance is tritium.

The radioactive material is nearly impossible to remove from the huge quantities of water used to cool melted-down reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, which was wrecked by the massive tsunami in northeastern Japan in March 2011.

The water is still accumulating since 300 tons are needed every day to keep the reactors chilled. Some is leaking into the ocean.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Build a giant electrolysis plant. Tritium in its gaseous state is one of the most valuable materials in the world, used in gunsights, watch dials, emergency lights, etc. Yes, it is radioactive, but a beta emitter. It's a lot safer strapped to your wrist than in the water and food you ingest!

FLASHBACK - 51 Sailors from USS Ronald Reagan Suffering Thyroid Cancer, Leukemia, Brain Tumors After Participating in Fukushima Nuclear Rescue Efforts Video Reports

Crew members in their mid-20?s from the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan are coming down with all sorts of radiation-related illnesses after being deployed less than 3 years ago to assist with earthquake rescue operations off the coast of Japan in 2011. It looks as though the onboard desalinization systems that take salt out of seawater to make it drinkable, were taking-in radioactive water from the ocean for the crew to drink, cook with and bath-in, before anyone realized there was a massive radiation spill into the ocean.

America decided to fool Russia on plutonium: Washington caught cheating

What in reality happens around the agreement on the destruction of weapons-grade plutonium, Russian President Putin explains in detail: "In the early 2000s, we agreed with the Americans about the destruction of weapons-grade plutonium. It was about excess weapon plutonium. This is the highly enriched fissile material, which is used to prepare nuclear weapons, 34 tons from both sides. We signed an agreement and have agreed that this material will be disposed of in a certain way, namely industrial, people had to build special factories. We complied with its obligations, we have built the factories. Our US partners — have not. Moreover, recently they announced that they intended to destroy accumulated highly enriched nuclear fuel the other way, than we with them have agreed, by signing the relevant agreement, and the other way - diluting and disposing of plutonium somewhere in certain containers at a depth of 500 meters.

Wild radioactive Fukushima boars breed like rabbits, ravage local countryside

Northern Japan is raising an alarm, as the area surrounding the Fukushima Nuclear disaster zone has been overwhelmed by radioactive wild boars, whose population has increased dramatically over the past 4 years, as they breed freely in the exclusion zone.

With the number of animals steadily growing, the boar population has been devastating the crops of farms in the area. Since the nuclear disaster of 2011, damage to agriculture caused by boars in the Fukushima prefecture has doubled, amounting to some $15 million, according to a report from The Times. Boars also pose a threat to public safety, as reports of rampaging wild beast injuring local residents while roaming the streets have become more frequent over the past few years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have wild boar here in Hawaii, brought here by the Polynesians as food animals, and their population is kept under control by hunting (bow and arrow only) as a food source. But this is not an option when the boars are contaminated.

The Most Dangerous Place On Earth: A Nuclear Armageddon In The Making In South Asia

Undoubtedly, for nearly two decades, the most dangerous place on Earth has been the Indian-Pakistani border in Kashmir. It’s possible that a small spark from artillery and rocket exchanges across that border might — given the known military doctrines of the two nuclear-armed neighbors — lead inexorably to an all-out nuclear conflagration. In that case the result would be catastrophic. Besides causing the deaths of millions of Indians and Pakistanis, such a war might bring on “nuclear winter” on a planetary scale, leading to levels of suffering and death that would be beyond our comprehension.

A Fukushima On The Hudson? The Growing Dangers Of Indian Point

It was a beautiful spring day and, in the control room of the nuclear reactor, the workers decided to deactivate the security system for a systems test. As they started to do so, however, the floor of the reactor began to tremble. Suddenly, its 1,200-ton cover blasted flames into the air. Tons of radioactive radium and graphite shot 1,000 meters into the sky and began drifting to the ground for miles around the nuclear plant. The first firemen to the rescue brought tons of water that would prove useless when it came to dousing the fires. The workers wore no protective clothing and eight of them would die that night — dozens more in the months to follow.

A Fukushima on the Hudson?

As the Fukushima tragedy struck, President Obama assured Americans that U.S. nuclear plants were closely monitored and built to withstand earthquakes. That statement covered one of the oldest plants in the country, the Indian Point Energy Center (IPEC) in Westchester, New York, first opened in 1962. One of 61 commercial nuclear plants in the country, it has two reactors that generate electricity for homes across New York City and Westchester County. It is located in the sixth most densely populated urban area in the world, the New York metropolitan region, just 30 miles north of Manhattan Island and the planet’s most economically powerful city.

Five Years After Fukushima, 16 U.S. Cleanup Ships Are Still Contaminated With Radiation

The Fukushima disaster was over five years ago, and may have been largely forgotten by the general public and the media (perhaps because the Japanese olympics are just four years from now), but its effects still linger. Perhaps nowhere more so than for those who took pare in the Fukushima clean up effort: as Starts and Stripes reports, sixteen U.S. ships that participated in relief efforts after Japan’s nuclear disaster five years ago remain contaminated with low levels of radiation from the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant.

“City” of Waste: Fukushima Cleanup Now Up to 10.7 Million 1-ton Bags of Radioactive Waste

By Matt Agorist

The fifth anniversary of the Fukushima disaster was on Friday, March 11. Since that fateful day in 2011, the Japanese government and the United States have continued to deny the lingering effects of this catastrophic event.

An estimated $21 billion has been spent on cleanup efforts since 2011, including funding for a team of remote activated robots capable of going to high-dose radiation areas of the plant where humans cannot enter and survive.

However, it has now emerged that at least five of these robots have been lost to the dangers that lurk in Fukushima Daiichi’s severely damaged nuclear reactors and waste treatment buildings...
