FIRST THYROID CANCER CASE IN JAPAN RECOGNIZED AS FUKUSHIMA-RELATED & COMPENSATED BY GOVT

A man who worked at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan during the disastrous 2011 meltdown has had his thyroid cancer recognized as work-related. The case prompted the government to finally determine its position on post-disaster compensation.

The unnamed man, said to be in his 40s, worked at several nuclear power plants between 1992 and 2012 as an employee of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. He was present at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant during the March 11, 2011 meltdown. Three years after the disaster, he was diagnosed with thyroid gland cancer, which the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare confirmed on Friday as stemming from exposure to radiation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is only reasonable that this this man getting compensated, although his death sentence from cancer will not be stayed; but what about Americans getting sick, and potentially developing cancer, from eating radioactive fish from Fukushima?!?

What does TEPCO intend to do for them?!?

TEPCO: Fukushima nuclear clean-up, compensation costs nearly double previous estimate at $250 billion

The total cost of decommissioning the stricken nuclear power plant at Fukushima and providing compensation to victims has nearly doubled, with a new estimate placing the cost at $250 billion. Five and a half years after the nuclear disaster, the painstaking work of cleaning up the radioactive disaster zone is progressing very slowly. Workers on the site have just finished a two-year project to remove a temporary building that was encasing the number 1 reactor.

Fukushima radiation detected on West Coast

For the first time, seaborne radiation from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster has been detected on the West Coast of the United States.

Cesium-134, the so-called fingerprint of Fukushima, was measured in seawater samples taken from Tillamook Bay and Gold Beach in Oregon, researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are reporting.

Because of its short half-life, cesium-134 can only have come from Fukushima.

Also for the first time, cesium-134 has been detected in a Canadian salmon, the Fukushima InFORM project, led by University of Victoria chemical oceanographer Jay Cullen, is reporting.

Blundering worker accidentally TURNS OFF reactor cooler at Fukushima nuclear plant for an hour when he bumps against a switch 

A nuclear worker at the Fukushima power plant almost caused another meltdown after accidentally switching off a vital cooling pump to one of its reactors.

The worker was passing through a narrow passage way when they knocked off the pump which was supplying cold water to the number three reactor - which was one of those which melted down following the 2011 earth quake and tsunami.

The pump was offline for about an hour before an emergency back-up kicked in

Fukushima nuclear decommission, compensation costs to almost double: media

Japan's trade ministry has almost doubled the estimated cost of compensation for the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster and decommissioning of the damaged Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear plant to more than 20 trillion yen ($177.51 billion), the Nikkei business daily reported on Sunday.

The trade ministry at the end of 2013 calculated the cost at 11 trillion yen, which was comprised of 5.4 trillion yen for compensation, 2.5 trillion yen for decontamination, 1.1 trillion yen for an interim storage facility for contaminated soil, and 2 trillion yen for decommissioning, the report said.

The new estimate raised the cost of compensation to 8 trillion yen and decontamination to 4-5 trillion yen, the cost for an interim storage facility remained steady, and decommissioning will rise by several trillion yen, it added.

Tsunami warning issued after massive 7.3-magnitude earthquake strikes off Fukushima in Japan 

An earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck early on Tuesday, local time, off the Japanese coast, some 67 km northeast of Iwaki, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The USGS reported the quake with a depth of 10 km struck about 6am and tsunami waves began to hit Japan's Pacific coast about 7am.

The epicentre of the quake is near Fukushima, where an earthquake in 2011 caused a nuclear plant to have a meltdown.

Tsunami waves are estimated to reach three metres tall in areas on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If a tsunami floods the reactor site, it could trigger an increase in the spontaneous fission taking place in the ruined cores down in the ground.

Fukushima Forests, Dubbed ‘Radiation Reservoirs,’ Are Full of Mutated Life Forms

Five years after the earthquake-triggered events that led to the meltdown of three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan, significant levels of radiation remain in the area – particularly in the forests near the disaster site.

The Japanese government has been attempting to clean up the radiation in the villages near the plant so that they can be repopulated, but so far, the surrounding countryside has been left alone, based on the advice of the Atomic Energy Commission.

The cleanup efforts have greatly reduced the amount of radiation in the villages, but according to a new report published by Greenpeace that was based in part on several peer-reviewed studies, the forests near the plant have become "radiation reservoirs," where radiation-induced mutations are now appearing in several plant and animal species.

Cyber Warfare? Air Force Kept Silent on Possible Russian Attack Against “Secret Drone Support Network”

The Air Force’s secret computer network, SIPRNet, which serves as a support network for classified intelligence on drone targets, as well as target location data, was interrupted. And during the time period when the system interference occurred, a number of drone strikes went wrong.

The problem was only noticed after-the-fact, but was later attributed to several operational failures throughout the Middle East region – including Syria.

The Air Force posted a bid on FedBizOpps, the government’s primary tender market, on October 7, saying that “the SIPRNet system currently in operation at Creech AFB failed and critical services were impacted.”

In Cold Blood

Russians aren’t worried about the forthcoming war. There is neither panic nor fear, just cool stoic acceptance of whatever comes. This week, some forty million people participated in a huge civil defence exercise. Shelters of Moscow and other cities have been aired and repaired. They do not want war, but if it comes, it will be met. The Russians have fought many wars against the West; they never started a war, but invariably fought to the finish.

An American attack on Syrian or Russian bases in Syria could be a starting point for the avalanche. I am truly amazed by the Russian spirits: they are considerably higher than they were in the days of Korean war, of Vietnam war or the Cuban crisis. Then, they were scared of war and ready for sacrifices to avoid MAD. Not anymore.

Fukushima Radiation Has Contaminated The Entire Pacific Ocean – And It’s Going To Get Worse

Waking Times Media

What was the most dangerous nuclear disaster in world history? Most people would say the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, but they’d be wrong. In 2011, an earthquake, believed to be an aftershock of the 2010 earthquake in Chile, created a tsunami that caused a meltdown at the TEPCO nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. Three nuclear reactors melted down and what happened next was the largest release of radiation into the water in the history of the world. Over the next three months, radioactive chemicals, some in even greater quantities than Chernobyl, leaked into the Pacific Ocean. However, the numbers may actually be much higher as Japanese official estimates have been proven by several scientists to be flawed in recent years.

An all-out nuclear war between Russia and the United States would be the worst catastrophe in history, a tragedy so huge it is difficult to comprehend. Even so, it would be far from the end of human life on earth. The dangers from nuclear weapons have been distorted and exaggerated, for varied reasons. These exaggerations have become demoralizing myths, believed by millions of Americans.

The long-term consequences of the Fukushima nuclear disaster continue to linger years after the event. Anyone who studies Chernobyl will know that even after three decades radioactive contamination persists.

Cleaning up 2014 Nuclear Waste Disaster in United States may Cost more than $2 Billion

By Amando Flavio

In February 2014, radioactive materials leaked from a damaged storage drum in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), located in the state of New Mexico, United States.

According to United States federal government officials, the WIPP is the world’s third deepest geological repository, licensed to permanently dispose of transuranic radioactive waste for 10,000 years, receiving radioactive waste from the country’s nuclear weapons program and commercial power generating plants.

The facility is under the direct management of the Department of Energy (DOE). When the accident occurred, the DOE claimed all 139 workers at the facility were underground, and were not exposed to the dangerous materials...

A typo and a bag of organic kitty litter may end up costing United States taxpayers more than $2 billion in nuclear waste cleanup, according to a new report by Ralph Vartabedian at the Los Angeles Times.

Back in February 2014, a drum of nuclear waste burst open inside the cavernous Waste Isolation Pilot Project (WIPP), which is drilled out of a salt deposit nearly half a mile below the deserts of Carlsbad, New Mexico.

The US Department of Energy (DOE), which funds the company that runs the nuclear waste dump, quickly suspended operations and launched an investigation to figure out the cause.

[J]ust before the 5th anniversary of the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi, a group of young girls in the city of Minami-Soma rode their bikes to school past a shocked and saddened pedestrian. That upset observer was Arnie Gundersen, nuclear reactor expert… “What surprised me at this visit to Japan… is that the decontaminated area is contaminated again,” Mr. Gundersen said while explaining why it was such as sad shock to witness the girls on their bicycles. “This was not what I had expected. I had thought that we would not find such high doses of radiation in the decontaminated area. But, sadly, our results prove otherwise.”… Gundersen collected samples of dust [though] the official data cannot be released before the publication of formal scientific papers, it is evident that high doses of radiation, usually found in nuclear waste, was detected from these samples. “This means that highly radioactive dust is flying around the city.

Nuclear accident in New Mexico ranks among the costliest in U.S. history

When a drum containing radioactive waste blew up in an underground nuclear dump in New Mexico two years ago, the Energy Department rushed to quell concerns in the Carlsbad desert community and quickly reported progress on resuming operations.

The early federal statements gave no hint that the blast had caused massive long-term damage to the dump, a facility crucial to the nuclear weapons cleanup program that spans the nation, or that it would jeopardize the Energy Department’s credibility in dealing with the tricky problem of radioactive waste.

But the explosion ranks among the costliest nuclear accidents in U.S. history, according to a Times analysis. The long-term cost of the mishap could top $2 billion, an amount roughly in the range of the cleanup after the 1979 partial meltdown at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania.

Zombie radiation: Fukushima's poisonous fallout eating entire chunks of peoples' brains away, reaching California coast

The Spanish newspaper, El Pais Semanal, reported back in May that Toru Anzai, 63, a former resident of Litate, Japan, a village in the Fukushima Prefecture, suffered a major heart attack and stroke several years after the reactor meltdowns. During Anzai's stay in the hospital, doctors realized that the frontal lobe of his brain had developed a hole, which they told him may have been caused by absorbing the radioactive isotope cesium, which was prevalent at Fukushima.

The hole in Anzai's brain caused the entire left side of his body to become paralyzed – this, despite the fact that following the reactor meltdowns Anzai was told that there was no risk of radiation. As it turns out, a dosimeter reading taken on April 18, just days after the Fukushima disaster, revealed that the room where Anzai and his brothers had been sleeping saw radiation levels up to 20 times higher than the threshold level established by the Japanese government for relocating residents.

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.

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.

What Would Happen If Humans Vanished From the Planet? Video Shows “Lights Out. Nature Takes Over.”

After the crisis, there could be nothing left of human populations.

There is no doubt that a disaster big enough to wipe out humanity exists – the threat of an EMP, a plague-level outbreak event, etc.

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.
