Nuclear energy could be our savoir, with much less damage to the planet or to us. (?)

We have more to worry about.

"The plant "was not well prepared for the severe natural hazard," Amano said. Following the disaster, Amano said he visited nuclear plants in several countries and saw that considerable safeguards had been introduced.

"After Fukushima, lots of improvements have been made," he said.

Each government, he said, ultimately has to decide whether to embrace nuclear energy for power generation based on many factors, including the availability of other options like hydropower.

Japan remains committed to nuclear power despite the meltdowns at Fukushima. Only two of the country's 43 workable reactors are currently online, with the others shut down pending safety checks, but the government wants to restart as many as possible.


With the increased interest in nuclear energy safety should be the number one concern...now let's bring in terrorism and we have another nightmare on our hands.

Quote:Huge Fukushima Cover-Up Exposed, Government Scientists In Meltdown

Fukushima radiation just off the North American coast is higher now than it has ever been, and government scientists and mainstream press are scrambling to cover-up and downplay the ever-increasing deadly threat that looms for millions of Americans.

Following the March 2011 meltdown at Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, reactors have sprayed immeasurable amounts of radioactive material into the air, most of which settled into the Pacific Ocean. A study by the American Geophysical Union has found that radiation levels from Alaska to California have increased and continue to increase since they were last taken.

The West coast is being fried with nuclear radiation from Fukushima. Lots of proof in link.................

The researchers are still saying radiation is still below gov't safe levels.



What a great idea..find out for yourself.

Quote:Second, we are moving ahead with development of the RadBand, a wearable device that gives any swimmer or surfer a chance to gather scientific data about the level of radioactive elements in the ocean just by going in the water. As results are shared and our user base grows, every person becomes a valuable data point as we expand the concept to other measurements of ocean properties. - See more at: http://ourradioactiveocean.org/results.h...JUaEc.dpuf

Quote:The National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), a government-affiliated entity, said in late August that the trunks of fir trees are not growing vertically. Fir trees are among the 44 species that the Environment Ministry asked the NIRS and other research organizations to study in trying to determine the effects of radiation on living creatures. The NIRS reported that the frequency of these mutations corresponds to a rise in natural background radiation. More than 90 percent of fir trees in the town of Okuma, just 3.5 kilometers from the crippled plant, showed signs of abnormal growth… Among other changes reported: the legs of plant lice collected in Kawamata, a town more than 30 km from the plant, were found to be missing or crooked and the white blood cell count of Japanese monkeys was lower in Fukushima, the prefectural capital, which is about 60 km from the plant… There is also a possibility that some animals, even if they exhibited signs of radiation’s effect, may no longer be alive for analysis.

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.


The three execs will plead not guilty.

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.

Just Plain Nuts.

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?
