Them poor folks just can't
seem to get a break, and it
ain't doing a body no favors
outside of Japan.

Tokyo Electric Power Company says more radioactive wastewater has leaked from its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. The water contained high levels of strontium.
Workers at the plant discovered the leak at around 1:00 AM on Thursday. They noticed an increase in water flowing through a pipe connected to a wastewater tank.

Plant operator TEPCO believes most of the water flowed into the Pacific Ocean. It says the contaminated water leaked from a treatment pipe.
The water contained radioactive strontium which tends to accumulate in bones and can cause leukaemia.
It is the second time in two weeks there has been a leak of contaminated water from the nuclear plant, prompting yet another apology from TEPCO.
Quote:Cesium levels in the Pacific had initially gone up an astonishing 45 million times above pre-accident levels. The levels then declined rapidly for a while, but after that, they unexpectedly levelled off.In July, cesium levels stopped declining and remained stuck at 10,000 times above pre-accident levels.This means the ocean isn’t diluting the radiation as expected. If it had been, cesium levels would have kept falling.The finding suggests that radiation is still being released into the ocean long after the accident in March, 2011.Read the rest: setyoufreenews.com
Quote:You want the fuel to be covered with water to keep it cool and shield radiation--------
Expected 33 feet, only 2 feet of water in reactor
That’s very, very bad
A symptom that something is very wrong
It is also a cause of yet more going wrong there… There’s nothing shielding the radiation that’s coming out of that fuel
The current plan is to invent something new that doesnt exist yet
The thing that does not exist that can allow us to even try to fix this problem
The thing that we could imagine might be useful to fix this problem, we’re going to have to invent
While the problem gets worse and worse and worse
It is beyond human capability
The really bad news is this is the good news… can’t even get near
They can’t even go near No. 1 and 3 to inspect
Nuclear problems are problems we don’t know how to fix

Biologists have found Polar Bears in the Beaufort Sea with hair loss and skin lesions. Those are the same symptoms that have sickened ice seals and walruses in the arctic since last summer and led the federal government to declare the incident an unusual mortality event. Scientists are just beginning an investigation into whether polar bears are suffering from the same thing. [...]
So far, the field scientists have found hair loss on nine of the 33 bears they’ve captured. The bears have skin lesions on their head, neck and ears. [...]
Dozens of seals have died from the disease, but no walrus deaths are attributed to it. Scientists don’t know yet if the walrus and seals are suffering from the same thing. Although the veterinary pathologist who has done most of the necropsies on the animals say the lesions look very similar under the microscope. [...]
Tony Degange, with USGS
“The first day we observed it was on March 21st and we had three captures and two of them had Alopecia, which is the skin loss and so it was like, ‘oh that’s interesting.’ Then we started picking it up on other animals in later March so it was like, this is more than normal.”
“The bears appear to be healthy otherwise. We haven’t seen any dead bears, so its not a mortality event as far as we know. But the fact that its occurring at the same time as this unexplained mortality event with seals certainly raises the interest level.”
Out of four polar bears biologists captured yesterday, three had skin lesions and hair loss
Julie Speegle, spokesperson for the National Marine Fisheries Service
“We still don’t know what is causing the disease. But our scientists have ruled out a number of bacteria and viruses that are known to affect marine mammals.”
“So just a couple more possible causes of illness that we have ruled out and we continue to go forward with studying samples and trying to find out what is causing this disease.”
