And, so it continues... sad2.gif

From Tepco’s own data, their contaminated water storage is already 91% full and will most likely overflow this June.

School Science Project Reveals High Levels Of Nuclear Radiation in Grocery Store Seafood

Armed with a $600 Geiger counter bought by her dad, Delacruz studied a variety of seafoods – particularly seaweeds – as part of an award-winning science project that she will take to a national fair next month.

“Some of the kelp that I found was higher than what the International Atomic Energy Agency sets as radioactive contamination, which is 1,450 counts over a 10-minute period,” she said. “Some of my samples came up as 1,700 or 1,800.”

Delacruz said the samples that “lit up” the most wereproducts from China that she bought in local grocery stores.

I bet the seafood in the US is contaminated too. I might buy a Geiger counter and check it out. You can pick them up real cheap on E-bay. Under 50 bucks sometimes.

Tepco NOT to analyze Plutonium or Uranium in bypass water before discharging to the Pacific
Tepco is not going to analyze / put the safety limit on α nuclides including Plutonium-238/239/240 and Uranium-235/238 in bypassed groundwater to discharge.

They are planning to discharge the pumped groundwater to the Pacific from this coming June.

In other words, it's that bad, so we'll ignore it.

Quote:If the new technology of ALPS turns to fail with other freezing water wall plan, Tepco would need to continue transferring these tanks for over half a century until they decommission the plant.

Safety concerns over ice wall plans at Fukushima

Quote:The NRA invited experts to a meeting last Friday to assess the planned ice walls.

NRA Commissioner Toyoshi Fuketa expressed concern about the risk of the ground sinking.

They've Found the Missing Fukushima Nuclear Cores ... Scattered All Over Japan

But now, it turns out that some of the Fukushima reactors have suffered even a more extreme type of damage: melt-OUTS.

By way of background, we’ve noted periodically that scientists have no idea where the cores of the nuclear reactors are.

And that highly radioactive black “dirt” has been found all over Japan.

It turns out that the highly radioactive black substances are likely remnants of the core.

Unconfirmed of course.

A number of independent researchers have demonstrated that long-term, relatively low levels of radiation may wreak up to 1000 times more biological havoc than the currently accepted “risk levels” that are being used as reference points for decisions about licensing and operating nuclear plants.

In 1972, a researcher in Canada, Dr. Abram Petkau, found that when cells were irradiated slowly, a smaller total dose was needed to cause damage. Since this critical discovery it has been verified that a small dose of radiation over a long time is more damaging than one larger dose. Imagine the ramifications! This means that the small amounts of radiation that are released from the everyday operation of the world’s 400 nuclear plants are doing much more damage than calculated.

wtf2.gif Chernobyl, one violent earthquake and it may crumble.

Quote:According to the Polish newspaper Zycie Warszawy, the surface is riddled with cracks and fissures large enough to allow rats to pass through. The interior is also full of mosquitoes which one journalist noted “are definitely larger than normal." Meanwhile, an independent engineering report has suggested that the entire structure would collapse in the event of an earthquake measuring six or higher on the Richter scale, thereby sending large clouds of radioactive dust across Europe yet again. To their credit, Ukrainian officials have spoken at great lengths about building a new and improved sarcophagus that will last for 100 years, but the structure’s prospective $2 billion price tag is presently proving prohibitive.

Are you saying that nuclear plants are not containing the radiation (except Fukushima, of course)? From this article, this is all they wrote on 'Time perspective'. wtf2.gif

Quote: Time perspective

The health effects of exposure both to radiation and to chemical cancer-inducing agents or toxins must be considered in relation to time. There is cause for concern not only about the effects on people presently living, but also about the cumulative effects of actions today over many generations.

Some radioactive materials which reach the environment decay to safe levels within days, weeks or a few years, while others continue their effect for a long time, as do most chemical cancer-inducing agents and toxins. Certainly this is true of the chemical toxicity of heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium and lead. These of course are a natural part of the human environment anyway, like radiation, but maintain their toxicity forever. The essential task for those in government and industry is to prevent excessive amounts of such toxins harming people, now or in the future. Standards are set in the light of research on environmental pathways by which people might ultimately be affected.
