Quote:TEPCO has confirmed to AM that groundwater is flooding into the plant's reactor buildings at the astonishing rate of 285 litres a minute.

Once inside, the water quickly becomes highly contaminated and has to be stored in tanks which cover 17 hectares of the plant's grounds.

But with those tanks close to capacity now, TEPCO has started to clear an adjoining forest to make more space to store the contaminated run-off.


This is not going away....ever. A curse.

Crushed By Soaring Energy Costs, Japan Prepares To Reactivate Its Nuclear Power Plants

And now, proving that Japan has learned absolutely nothing from its recent past, it is now preparing to risk yet another Fukushima, just to make sure that Goldman's partners have a fresh year of record bonuses, driven by the BOJ's monetary insanity. Yomiuri Shumbun reports, that just two years after a wholesale shutdown of Japan's nuclear power plants demanded by the people, Japan is once again going to reactivate its nuclear power plants, much to the chagrin of the already massively irradiated local population.

Why is none of this info ever seen on the MSM. All we ever get is celebrity status and news we don't need to know.

Don't worry. I know why, just need to vent.

yup.gif Lots of info on this thread, that's why we've kept it going despite a MSM clampdown. It's unsettling.

Quote:Correspondents say this suggests water has been leaking from the plant or storage tanks into the soil - something the company previously said had not happened.

All of this is going to make it even more difficult for Tepco to convince local fishermen that it is safe for Tepco to start pumping ground water from around the plant in to the ocean, the BBC's Rupert Wingfield-Hayes in Tokyo reports.


Well, at least they are making slow but sure headway in damage control.

Fukushima endgame in progress.
Posted on June 10, 2013

From the Japanese “blog of waiting Chan” comes the news that xenon-133 and xenon-135 have been detected at the Fukushima Daiichi gas management facility. Iodine-135 Xenon-135 is generated in a nuclear reactor from the radioactive decay of tellurium-135, a fission product. Xe-135 is the most powerful neutron absorber known, and this process extinguishes a nuclear reaction. This is known as the iodine pit.

Also, radioactive silver-110m has been found. This comes from melted control rods. Its boiling point is 2162 degrees C, so it is clear that very high temperatures are involved. This isotope Ag-110m bioaccumulates at a rate far above that of cesium, according to Prof. Satoshi Mori. It has an affinity for the Kupffer cells of the liver.

Cobalt-60 and manganese-54 have also been detected. These are activation products which result from neutron radiation of building materials.

Clearly, a massive criticality has occurred. And it is NOT coming from the underground coriums, but rather the aboveground sources of radioactivity such as the spent fuel pools. These have FAR more radioactivity in them than the nuclear fuel which has burrowed underground.

This is yet another criticality in the latest round of radioactive emissions which commenced in February. It is going in cycles, where the fuel heats up, releases radiation, and then Xe-135 extinguishes it, and it starts all over again. Every stage in the cycle is worse than the last one.

Guess the plan is to restart some of the reactors,,,

you know,,,money,,,whatever,,,protests of course,,,

whole disaster is going to cost 10 trillion,,,and they

are in debt 200 percent gdp,,,hope no more natural

disasters,,,hope,,,hope,,,hope,,,yeah,,,that will work...

More from yesterday:


Quote:Members of the Nuclear Regulation Authority voiced frustration at Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO), which has failed to identify the source and the cause of spiking readings of radioactive materials in groundwater.

F**k you, shima. Die itchy.

The GDp is down 200 percent then why start up other reactors when they have no income for clean up and safety precautions! I remember saying we need to get away from nuclear power a year before this happened, surprised so many want to waste their countries taxes on billtions to trillions of cleanup , when we could use natural sources for 10000% percent less the cost of nuclear energy ideas that have proven devastation on a global level!! WOW , the audacity of dumbasses!

I also remember a year or two ago when i was trying to come up with ideas to neutralize radiation, using a few unique concepts, but then again i only had 3 years of college and honors classes in high school for which i wished i had taken AP, because it was horseshit not to.
The main concept is reaching an neutralizing each radioactive atom by giving it the right electron it needs to stabilize itself!
Whether it can be done with lasers and such or a more complicated way, i'm sure is possible, why has there been no ideas ir testing in this area?!!
Is it not logical to solve the most fundamental problem we have here on Earth??!!

They are just admitting it, what a surprise...

Quote:Radioactive water leaked into sea: TEPCO

The admission on Monday came the day after Japanese voters went to the polls in an election for the upper house, handing the largely pro-nuclear party of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a handsome majority.

Earlier this month, Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said groundwater samples taken at the battered plant showed levels of possibly cancer-causing caesium-134 had shot up more than 110 times in a few days.

TEPCO did not know the exact reasons for the increased readings but had maintained the toxic groundwater was likely contained at the current location, largely by concrete foundations and steel sheets.

"But now we believe that contaminated water has flown out to the sea," a TEPCO spokesman said Monday.
