Quote:"The court proceedings that will now follow should reveal the true extent of TEPCO's and the Japanese regulatory system's enormous failure to protect the people of Japan," said Hisayo Takada, deputy programme director at the organisation's Japan office.

A report by the International Atomic Energy Agency last year said a misguided faith in the complete safety of atomic power was a key factor in the Fukushima accident.

It pointed to weaknesses in disaster preparedness and in plant design, along with unclear responsibilities among regulators.

A 2012 parliamentary report also said Fukushima was a man-made disaster caused by Japan's culture of "reflexive obedience", but no one has been punished criminally.

So, I guess this means that when we un bury Japan in 35,000 years, we can start to grow some new Boc Choy? If it weren't bad enough, sardines are going for cheaper rates. The new lead lined cans are really boosting morale!

Let's face it, radiation is the new norm. And it is not gonna change anytime in the near future. I can see that they are gonna get their new mutations.

i seriously doubt we will be here in 35,000 years.
lol

5 years ago today.
I still think it will become the death of us all.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

It's a sad anniversary.

It may the end of us all, but before we go there may be a solar storm such as the Carrington event . What will happen to the thousands of nuclear reactors worldwide then?

Where is the international community to join forces to save ourselves?

Total fail, that's what.

I am still trying to understand the radioactivity uptake in life as the scientists and government (not close to Fukushima (although that can be said for the Japanese gov't too)) aren't very concerned.

Quote:Fish also excrete cesium fairly efficiently, losing a few percent per day. So if fish are no longer exposed to new contamination sources, the levels in their tissue should decrease fairly quickly.

Of particular concern for top-level consumers is the potential that these radioisotopes will be concentrated as they make their way up the food chain—what ecologists call biomagnification. Fortunately, cesium shows only modest biomagnification in marine food chains—much less than mercury, a toxic metal, or many other harmful organic compounds such the insecticide DDT and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Fisher said.

Quote:The robots sent in to find highly radioactive fuel at Fukushima's nuclear reactors have "died." A subterranean "ice wall" around the crippled plant meant to stop groundwater from becoming contaminated has yet to be finished. And authorities still don't know how to dispose of highly radioactive water stored in an ever-mounting number of tanks around the site.

California bans commercial crab fishing due to excessive radiation in seafood.

(NaturalNews) In November of last year, California state officials placed an indefinite hold on the commercial crab season, in order to protect public health. The reason given by the state was dangerously high levels of algal toxins in the bodies of the crabs.

But according to New York radio station 95.1 FM (SuperStation 95), insiders from the California Fish and Game Commission have revealed that the real reason for the ban was dangerously high levels of radioactivity resulting from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster

*Snip*

Quote:Last week, California Department of Fish and Wildlife officials announced the opening of both the recreational and commercial fisheries after recent tests showed that domoic acid levels in crabs caught off the coast of California south of the Mendocino-Sonoma County line no longer posed a risk to human health.

I guess it depends on which story you want to believe.
