More than three years after the earthquake and tsunami devastated northeast Japan and left a major nuclear plant in Fukushima paralyzed, efforts to contain the nuclear disaster are still facing major hurdles as the area around it remains a ghost town. Last week, Tokyo Electric Power Co., better known as TEPCO, revealed that an ice wall that was designed to stem the flow of radioactive water seeping from the crippled reactors at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant isn’t freezing as fast as they hoped.

In the three months since construction began, temperatures in the ground around the barrier meant to contain the contaminated water in underground trenches have only fallen to around 15 degrees (59 degrees Fahrenheit) and TEPCO announced a new plan to accelerate the freezing process—dumping 10 tons of ice every day until the wall forms.

It's amazing how the ice wall isn't able to contain 5,000 degree particles. Who da thunk it? It's a mystery. hmm.gif dunno.gif

Your prayers have worked like crazy. Maybe one of these days I won't have any behavior issues.

Well, I guess so...if they say so.

Quote:Tests of water off the U.S. West Coast have found no signs of radiation from Japan's 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, although low levels of radiation are ultimately expected to reach the U.S. shore, scientists said on Tuesday.

Quote:Tests of some fish species, which can race across the ocean more quickly than slow-moving currents, have shown higher levels of radiation, although radiation levels in sea life off the U.S. shore are still safe, Buesseler said.

Tepco seeks OK for toxic-groundwater dumping facility at Fukushima plant

FUKUSHIMA – Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Monday asked regulators for permission to build a facility to dump radiation-tainted groundwater from the Fukushima No. 1 power plant into the sea after filtration, sources said.

Tepco filed the application with the Secretariat of the Nuclear Regulation Authority after briefing local officials on the plan. It wants to start pumping the filtered groundwater on a trial basis.

Tepco plans to lay pipes at the crippled power plant to direct the water to the compound’s seaport. Even after nearly all the radioactive contaminants have been removed, the water won’t be dumped into the Pacific until consent has been obtained from local authorities, the utility said.

In May, Tepco separately started a “groundwater bypass” project to reroute less risky groundwater from the land side of the reactors to the sea to prevent it from seeping into the radiation-contaminated facility.

Scientists report genetic abnormalities in birds, insects, plants near Fukushima

Quote:Fukushima’s nuclear disaster has caused genetic damage, a decline in the population and other changes to non-human organisms from plants to butterflies to birds in the area, US and Japanese scientists say.

In a series of articles published in the latest of US science magazine Journal of Heredity, researches revealed the widespread impact of the March 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster on biological organisms in the region.

“A growing body of empirical results from studies of birds, monkeys, butterflies, and other insects suggests that some species have been significantly impacted by the radioactive releases related to the Fukushima disaster,” stated Dr. Timothy Mousseau, of the University of South Carolina, lead author of one of the studies.

It's just a flesh wound. Put some ice on it.

This new video is well done. Lots of quick research.

I just was just searching for othe reasonable explanations of creature die-off, in my attempt to pinpoint the Fukushima radiation as it's undeniable cause.

Starfish wasting disease (little known disease):
Starfish wasting disease or sea star wasting syndrome is a disease of starfish that appears sporadically, causing mass mortality of affected starfish
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starfish_wasting_disease

I am leaning towards our warming and ever-increasing toxicity of our oceans (acidification and proliferation of disease), then of course die-off and lack of food throughout the food chain as the main causes.

Blue Fin tuna population:
Statistics point to overfishing.

MOSCOW, August 25 (RIA Novosti) - Rice produced in Japan’s Fukushima Prefecture has gone on sale in Japanese supermarkets in Singapore, the BBC reported Monday.

Singapore is said to have extremely strict food safety standards, and Japanese farmers have expressed hope that passing the state’s requirements could improve global confidence in their rice, especially the rice from Fukushima.

This is from a Japan site. This is the transcript of a press meeting with TEPCO. In it TEPco on being pushed admitted to leaking 8 billion bequerels per day into the sea!!!

Translation is shite but you will get the drift of this.

I am out to sea! 8 billion becquerels each day> ". Cups 1 billion becquerels, strontium 90 is 5 billion becquerels, cesium-137 is two billion Becquerel, tritium per cent - that, you will one day" to cause 8/25 TEPCO press conference characters

Even if say, "do not sink to the sea water that TEPCO has been contaminated with high concentration"
and I thought, "Maybe you wonder'm out" is, but
people of Tokyo Electric Power Company, issued a number and clearly Te,
"water of the well point of Units 2 and 3, which seem the dirtiest, are flowing to the sea is higher than the ground"
strontium 90 is 5 billion becquerels of cesium 137 Becquerel two billion, one billion becquerels tritium ,
.... "This will be one day," I and 8 billion becquerels also fit only radioactive material of three every day. As the 30th month, 240 billion becquerels. Since when do you have flowing out? Horrible ... I've raised the character contents of the conference portion of said numbers. August 25, 2014 TEPCO

Explainer nuclear location Division Shirai newsletter Nakamura: I'm sorry Hey, I want to see, but the Tteyuu WellPoint of Units 2 and 3 is, and Well now, Do you want understanding pumped up that has not been? Shirai: For example, concerning the well point between Unit 4 and Unit 3, You will find death installed, but it is not the driving. : Newsletter No! Is few. 2 and 3. Shirai: Oh, regarding Units 2 and 3, er, I'm certainly move only one. Newsletter: Is it good thing So pumped, people of Units 2 and 3 that have a pumping? Shirai: But, uh, we are lined Te Zura~tsu at intervals of about 1m, but it because it is from only a portion still rather than from the whole, the hand will be a very small value and quantity. Newsletter: I'm sorry, do you are you doing and for what purpose it? Shirai: previously, when it was a sampling of the water in the vicinity at the well point, it is its value, higher because it was out, and that uh, eh, and that trying to recover as much as possible, it,, there Tegozaimasu started operation only place. Newsletter: Is it does not change much? As an amount which the pumping its. I almost daily average, against WellPoint of Units 2 and 3. Shirai: That little,, ... Well, from the start that, the operation because I think a certain time certainly, and was driving, separated limit, I think the amount and was not so much more. Newsletter: In exchange of earlier, Shirai-san " or'm not leaked into the sea groundwater rises in Units 2 and 3 had been talking to, " though, is it I want in such understanding? Shirai: Oh, and Units 2 and 3, concerning the portion of the seawall of Units 3 and 4, the Company has implemented ground improvement Well, in a water glass, but the place ... on it, Customer is requested, and E , it is not possible to do that in the mortar or the like, and he said uh, and fill. At, it does not fold even pumped up by ... current situation WellPoint, etc. For example ..., that up to now, even in the water level, such as roux, groundwater, and has served on every Friday the per centーーー,ーーーexample, was ground improvement water level because it is higher than the place , For example, I think that it is good if I have thought in the wind that there are those out to sea to get over it. Newsletter: Then for example, to say in between Units 2 and 3, do I want to think about those of 100,000 Becquerel is to have leaked into the sea and that's all beta at the highest? Shirai: ..... I think that, at the Units 2 and 3, and there was also such ~Eーー, at some point, but, ......... Well, now, that material was handed out today You think you hear in round 4 of the current state of, E, of the explanatory material Ryoren. ... At the No. 1 slide here, in a place called water pumped WellPoint, is located in the bottom of the 6 of number two. It becomes water where that is pumped exactly this is. So, Toka 110 000 all activator, such things, Itsu also, so come out and pumped at the well point, that this is pumped. Fukushima Prefecture Ryoren union president meeting explanatory material PDF 8月25日2014年materials : newsletter I'm'm not pumped up all right? Shirai: It does not mean you are pumping all, but in placesーーーexample, Miteru, it was ...... Toka is 6 of the other two, at the other, Son, that over, so much Oh, and there was no large ones, it was not I think either. Also that, carp, this, your over over, a near KUU of WellPoint, by those dark called out, select it here, and are pumped. To be or not you have to get out there more that, I want Osshari It is the dirty other, I think it's that, you say, but basically, A, those in this WellPoint Seems the dirtiest for the and have done a pumped. : Newsletter all anymore, and pumped up the, the groundwater of WellPoint, the place of WellPoint Do I want water there than that it does not flow out to harbor or rather the open ocean? Shirai: That, say now is the fact that this position, water that is pumped up by the well point at the Units 2 and 3 ~I over over the other, at, as a result of the sampling, N its ...... ..., on hand no, but I do ..., ..., this?, and we will see where Well, the documentation that you were handed out today, the sampling results, Toka is a double-dip of the other, Oh, series of numbers 2, 2, 3 You think you hear the Unit. Current situation, it will be things like concentrations these Regarding per cent water here, per cent part er, of water after incense Oh, it can be said that there is likely to go out and get over it I think whether Newsletter: Well, or, as the amount of pumped it is pumped in large quantities now towards the Units 1 and 2 but, Units 2 and 3 is not pumped almost, and Units 3 and 4 because not pumped, radioactive to some extent substance , I think we are out to sea to ride with the flow of groundwater Are you sure you want in understanding that? Shirai: Well, yes. Thank you: newsletter. Kino: It is a Keno free though, and I'm a story that is out of the place of ground improvement, but this, how much is to go outside, radioactive material or are out on the sea? Of that is , how it is being evaluated as a number? Shirai: ーーーthat, that, is a result of let me finally evaluated, we talk of that today, than before, but for this year, by emergency measures, since last year the concentration of the radioactive material of each, But, when this much and was reduced, this will be the result of evaluating the other. For example, that, from the beginning: Kino and Shirai: It is on page 7. It either is a thing of 7 page: Kino. Well: Shirai : Kino Thisーーーーthat, as the amount, number, Well, specifically I guess is that Well that has come out and if you look at the documentation for the past? This is I do not know that number, because it is a bar chart that was roughly. At, of that amount coming out this, that's what has come out from where how much, how it is being evaluated? Part that has overcome the place of ground improvement where a few now, part, is over riding in the 3 and 4 of that part that is out of the other, or is, will do has been assessed in the form of something or? Shirai: There was a question Etto, of just, eh, and I talked to when there was a question from Mr. Nakamura, but this is, as a way even when last year's basically the concentration of radioactive substances in harbor and, replacing the amount of water in the sea of harbor from the place and, Tegozaimasu the evaluation term. So, now, as there was a question, how long has come out in parts of the respective? It is not evaluation, such as. Concentration of radiation in the port since has dropped some place finally, uh, the amount that are on the sea ought to have dropped to this position. And, it is to such evaluation. Kino: future, that, from where they have come up which place? The evaluation is detailed analysis of, I guess this will not do? Shirai, a separate location from individual comes out ... A lot ... le part, very little, the location, it I think or not to such evaluation. Again, we are talking from the previous, also at or, and comparison from the previous, you will be notified by the separate values ​​in the harbor. Later, the question of just, eh, it is a number, but here, example, 5 billion becquerels, will be this year, but strontium 90 is 5 billion becquerels . At, cesium-137 is two billion becquerels . Yes, love, um, per day you will , and, as is described in here at, tritium in, attaching ...., E, 1 billion becquerels It becomes a place called. : Kino Okay. Between this year from last year, runoff of strontium and the amount of cesium is reversed for is, cesium Toka are trapped, I do wonder why it kind of reason? Shirai: That, as that digestion result, that, I might be things like that eventually, but basically that, when compared with the concentration of Okeru strontium, and concentration of cesium in the harbor, how to decrease the amount of cesium because was less than how to reduce the amount of E, of strontium, it is the result of these and I think it comes to. But, as you said now, by those of cesium is likely to be caught or the soil than strontium it becomes that this is difficult flow, and I think things will come led to the story from there. Kino: While, it is fine for the time being.

Heavy equipment falls into Fukushima reactor pool

A 400-kilogramme (880-pound) machine part fell into a nuclear fuel pool at Japan's crippled Fukushima plant Friday, the operator said.

Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO), said it had not detected any significant changes in radiation readings or in the level of pool water at the No. 3 reactor.

A massive earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 ravaged Japan's northeastern coast and wrecked the plant, sparking meltdowns at three of its six reactors.

Friday's incident occurred shortly after noon during a remotely controlled operation to remove debris from the fuel pool at the unit where the broken reactor still lies untouched. The pool contains 566 fuel rods, most of which are spent.

The operating console of the fuel handling machine slipped loose and fell into the pool as it was about to be lifted by a crane, TEPCO said in a statement.

Sleep walking, into denial, or desperate for energy at any cost?

Quote:The accident at a nuclear fuel reprocessing plant in the village occurred on Sept. 30, 1999. It left two people dead.

He said the safety myth and failure to clarify exactly why the accident took place led to mistakes that resulted in the Fukushima debacle.

The accident in Tokai, about 130 km northeast of Tokyo, killed two employees of operator JCO Co. and exposed more than 600 residents to radiation. The critical state lasted around 20 hours, through the next day.
