Japanese Nuclear Propaganda Cartoon.. Dear Lord!

High radiation readings at Fukushima

High radiation readings at Fukushima

The operator of Japan's stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant says it has found new radiation hotspots near tanks storing toxic water, with one reading peaking at 1,800 millisieverts per hour - a potentially lethal dose.

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) detected high radiation readings at four sites around the tanks although none of the containers showed any visible fall in their water levels, according to a statement reported by two Japanese news agencies.

Last week the plant operator admitted 300 tonnes of toxic water had seeped out of one of the vast containers - one of around 1,000 on the site - before anyone had noticed.

The spill, which sparked fears the toxic water may have seeped into the nearby ocean, was categorised as a Level 3 event, making it the single most serious incident since three reactors went into meltdown after being swamped by a 2011 earthquake-sparked tsunami.

Re: Videos: Leaks and the Olympics? Dilution the Solution coming, mark my words.... (not that they haven't from the outset)

[snip]
The storage tanks were only built as a 'temporary measure' and were expected to last about 5 years.

Now rubber seals are giving way.

"TEPCO says the tanks that have leaked use rubber seams that were intended to last about five years. Ono said TEPCO plans to build additional tanks with welded seams that are more watertight, but will still have to rely on ones with rubber seams."


The following article is more than a bit disturbing, noting how one of the tanks had already been sinking two years back and needed to be emptied and reassembled. The article also notes that 'about 30%' of the 1000 tanks have rubber seals that can also fail.

"All five of the temporary tanks involved in the leaks were collapsible and held together by rubber seals, meaning they were less durable than those with welded seams.

Tepco spokesman Noriyuki Imaizumi said the tank passed a water-tightness test and other safety requirements after it was reassembled, but that the leak might have started when the seals began deteriorating, leading to contortions in the tank."



When considering how much 'hotter' the site became with less than 1/3 volume of one of the over 1000 tanks already built on the site, this has the potential to deteriorate to the point where little to no maintenance can be done should other seals start leaking as well.



HOW they think they should host the Olympics in 7 years is beyond me.

This scenario of newly built tanks with rubber seals already leaking two years back, on tanks that were only built to last 5 years, rings alarm bells for me.


At least 3 new tanks need to be built each week, every week to 'temporarily' hold the ever-increasing amounts of contaminated water.


[Can someone define what they mean by 'temporary'?]



This story from 2012 highlights the storage tanks:


""It's a pressing issue because our land is limited and we would eventually run out of storage space," the water-treatment manager, Yuichi Okamura, told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview this week...

..."The water's radiation level, measured about 50 centimeters (2 feet) above the puddle, was about 100 millisieverts per hour – the maximum cumulative exposure allowed for plant workers over five years, Ono said."

And, we all know how Japan raised the 'maximum exposure levels' for industry workers after the accident.



If you look at the picture showing how close together these tanks are, at 1000 tons of water each with each gallon weighing 8 pounds:

1000 tons = 1000 X 2000 pounds = 2 million pounds at 8 pounds each = 16 million pounds.

I do not know the size of the AREA NEEDED FOR EACH TANK, but I will estimate it at approximately 40 linear ft diameter, being somewhere under 1600 square feet. That load translates to 10,000 pounds load per square foot, not counting the weight of the tank itself.

Since many of these tanks are just hundreds of feet from shore, some of it landfill, I will assume that these loads may be a problem all by themselves. The 75' X 50' property next to me was not allowed to store 8 cars, with loads somewhere around 3600 ponds per square foot. NYC only allowed 5 cars.

Of course, I am not an engineer, and I do understand that the tanks are round, so I assume that the loads are even higher, especially with some tanks appearing not to have concrete foundations to sit on, while those on foundations have cracks.

Look at these pictures to see examples: [link to ww4.hdnux.com]



Finally, this is the ONLY article that I found which discusses the nature of why foundations have cracked in the past: [link to ex-skf.blogspot.com]

Radiation Rises, China Syndrome At Fukushima Continues While Officials Indulge In Delusions

Weekending news:

"How the Fukushima Ice Barrier Will Block Radioactive Groundwater", (really)? MIT synopsis?

[snip]

Japan plans to stop leaking radioactive groundwater at Fukushima with an underground wall of ice. Here’s how it would work.

By Peter Fairley on August 30, 2013

WHY IT MATTERS

Contaminated groundwater remains a huge problem at Fukushima.

Japanese officials desperate to contain an ever-growing crisis at the Fukushima nuclear power station are looking to use artificial permafrost to stop radioactive water from leaking. The idea is to build a mile-long wall of frozen earth around Fukushima’s toxic reactor buildings to stem the groundwater contamination; the most experienced specialists in the field say the plan should work.

The Japanese firms involved appear to be taking a go-it-alone approach. Two weeks ago, a top official at Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) signaled that the utility behind the Fukushima disaster would seek international assistance with the Fukushima water contamination crisis. But experts at U.S.-based firms and national labs behind the world’s largest freeze-wall systems—and the only one proven in containing nuclear contamination—have not been contacted by either Tepco or its contractor, Japanese engineering and construction firm Kajima Corp.


One of these experts is Elizabeth Phillips, who managed the installation of a 300-foot-long, 30-foot-deep freeze wall to isolate radioactive waste at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee in 1996 and 1997. While freeze walls are commonly used to hold back groundwater to facilitate excavations at construction sites and mines, this case calls for specialized expertise, she says. “You need to make sure that whoever is doing it is analyzing everything that can go wrong,” says Phillips. “You should go with someone who has done it before.”

BY JAKE ADELSTEIN

What has been will be again,

what has been done will be done again;

there is nothing new under the sun.

— Ecclesiastes 1:9

These words are said to have been penned by King Solomon around 3,000 years ago. Perhaps they were an augury of Japan’s nuclear industry. I’m sure somewhere there’s an original text that reads, “In the Land of the Melting Sun.”
Here’s the basic pattern: An accident occurs in Japan’s nuclear industry; those in charge fail to deal with it well; people suffer; those in charge lie to the public; finally they admit it and apologize profusely. Then the cycle is repeated.


The latest revelations of leaks from at least one of more than 1,000 storage tanks being used to store radiation-contaminated water at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant operated by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (Tepco) are really nothing new; it’s just another in a series of follies being handled in an irresponsible and short-sighted way.


True to form, while the media had been reporting on the problem for weeks, Tepco had denied it. Finally — and oddly, just after July’s Upper House elections — there was the admission, the obligatory apology, and an announcement by the Japanese government that it would come to the rescue.


They say those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it — yet the patterns of mishaps in Japan’s nuclear industry that I write about are so reproducible as to give me a strange sense of déjà vu. We have been here before.


The explosions and meltdowns of three reactors at Tepco’s Fukushima facility in March 2011, leading to massive leaks of radiation, comprised the world’s worst nuclear disaster since a reactor exploded at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the USSR (present-day Ukraine) in April 1986. In the northeastern Tohoku region of Honshu, where the Fukushima plant is located, more than 100,000 people have been forced to evacuate due to high radiation levels and the cleanup will likely take at least 40 years.


Tepco at first blamed the accident on “an unforeseen massive tsunami” triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. Then it admitted it had in fact foreseen just such a scenario but hadn’t done anything about it.


A Special Diet Commission reporting in July 2012, and other studies, concluded that the earthquake alone probably damaged the cooling system of the Fukushima plant’s 40-year-old Reactor 1 so badly that, even before the tsunami, meltdown was inevitable because it would overheat so much.


In other words, some of Japan’s nuclear power plants may be unable to withstand an earthquake. Not a comforting thought in a country that has constant seismic activity.
Of course, “nuclear meltdown” itself was denied for months. Even up to May 2011, while the foreign media had long labeled the Fukushima disaster “a triple meltdown,” Tepco — and the national government — stonewalled, insisting that meltdown had not been confirmed.

Then finally, just a week before members of an International Atomic Energy Agency investigation team were to arrive in Japan, the government and Tepco admitted the facts — with the usual ritual apologies.

TEPCO president apologizes to Fukushima fishermenFukushima radiation fearsAFP

TOKYO —
Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) President Naomi Hirose on Thursday offered his apologies to Fukushima fishermen who fear their livelihoods are being put at risk by contamination of the ocean, pledging every possible measure to avoid an impact on their catch.
But Hiroshi Kishi, head of JF Zengyoren, a federation of more than 1,000 fisheries cooperatives nationwide, said his members had no faith in TEPCO’s ability to fix the mess its Daiichi nuclear plant had created.
“We think your company’s management of contaminated water has collapsed,” he said. “We are extremely worried as it’s creating an immeasurable impact on our country’s fishing industry and will continue to do so in the future.”...

Fukushima in freefall: radioactive water filters taken offline, Tepco in desperation as leaks just won't stop Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/041800_Fukushima_radiation_leaks_desperation.html#ixzz2dFw6k43g

[SNIP]

 
Tuesday, August 27, 2013
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles...)

 

 
(NaturalNews) After a 29-month cover-up, the Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) is now calling for international help and has all but admitted Fukushima's radiation leaks are spiraling out of control. In addition to the leaking water storage units that are unleashing hundreds of tons of radioactive water each day, Tepco now says 50% of its contaminated water filtration capability has been taken offline due to corrosion.

 
The result is that radiation leaks are escalating out of control and attempted remediation efforts are faltering. This is in addition to the fact the Japanese government's attempted brainwashing propaganda campaign has also been exposed. It attempted to convince people that if they drank beer or smiled, they would be immune to radiation poisoning. (Yes, this is how desperate they've become...)

 
From day one, the Fukushima fiasco has been all about denial: Deny the leaks, shut off the radiation sensors, black out the news and fudge the science. Yet more than two years later, the denials are colliding with the laws of physics, and Tepco's cover stories are increasingly being blown wide open.

 
As Businessweek.com now reports, Japan seems to have no practical interest in solving this problem:

 
Russia's nuclear company, Rosatom, of which Rosenergoatom is a unit, sent Japan a 5 kilogram (11 pound) sample of an absorbent that could be used at Fukushima almost three years ago, Asmolov said. It also formed working groups ready to help Japan on health effect assessment, decontamination, and fuel management, among others, Asmolov said. The assistance was never used, he said.

 
That's because for Tepco to welcome any assistance, it would first have to admit it has a problem. And that's unacceptable in a business culture where egos run rampant and the idea of taking responsibility for your actions is considered abhorrent.

 
To save their own careers, Tepco experts would gladly sacrifice the health of millions of Japanese citizens.

 

27 families file suit against TEPCO

The problem with denial in the face of a world-class radiation disaster is that sooner or later the body bags start to pile up. Now, 74 people from 27 families are filing suit in the Osaka District Court, seeking 15 million Yen each for psychological and physical damage. (And they are the lucky ones who are still living.)

 

 
The group will argue that Tepco should have taken stronger measures to protect the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant from earthquakes and tsunami after the government's Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion warned in 2002 that there was a 20 percent chance of a magnitude 8 or so quake occurring in the Japan Trench in the Pacific Ocean within 30 years.

 

Fishing ban reinstated

Part of the Fukushima denial was the claim that fish were somehow not being irradiated by the numerous leaks of highly radioactive water. This cover-up was further enforced by lifting a fishing ban that had been announced in the days following the original Fukushima meltdown event in 2011.

 
Now that fishing ban has been reinstated. Australian reporter Mark Willacy visited the fishermen to get their reaction to the news, and what he reported sounds right in line with what we're seeing, too:

 
[The fishermen] are very angry. They've obviously believed that Tepco has been lying to them for weeks, if not months. You know, they seem to suggest that that the cover-ups get worse... They believe Tepco's probably sitting on more secrets that they don't want anyone to know about. So there's a feeling that Tepco just cannot be trusted and that these fisherman probably don't really feel like they have a future anymore.

 
Tepco lying? Say it isn't so!

TEPCO's answer to everything *Hint (you can't freeze hot molten soil)

Radioactive Bluefin Tuna Caught Off California Coast

[snip]
bluefin tunaEvery bluefin tuna tested in the waters off California has shown to be contaminated with radiation that originated in Fukushima. Every single one.
Over a year ago, in May of 2012, the Wall Street Journal reported on a Stanford University study. Daniel Madigan, a marine ecologist who led the study, was quoted as saying, “The tuna packaged it up (the radiation) and brought it across the world’s largest ocean. We were definitely surprised to see it at all and even more surprised to see it in every one we measured.”
Another member of the study group, Marine biologist Nicholas Fisher at Stony Brook University in New York State reported, “We found that absolutely every one of them had comparable concentrations of cesium 134 and cesium 137.”
That was over a year ago. The fish that were tested had relatively little exposure to the radioactive waste being dumped into the ocean following the nuclear melt-through that occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in March of 2011. Since that time, the flow of radioactive contaminants dumping into the ocean has continued unabated. Fish arriving at this juncture have been swimming in contaminants for all of their lives.
Radioactive cesium doesn’t sink to the sea floor, so fish swim through it and ingest it through their gills or by eating organisms that have already ingested it. It is a compound that does occur naturally in nature, however, the levels of cesium found in the tuna in 2012 had levels 3 percent higher than is usual. Measurements for this year haven’t been made available, or at least none that I have been able to find. I went looking for the effects of ingesting cesium. This is what I found:
When contact with radioactive cesium occurs, which is highly unlikely, a person can experience cell damage due to radiation of the cesium particles. Due to this, effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding may occur. When the exposure lasts a long time, people may even lose consciousness. Coma or even death may then follow. How serious the effects are depends upon the resistance of individual persons and the duration of exposure and the concentration a person is exposed to.

Breaking!, Cloud seeding to mitigate the drought in Japan, is it more sinister than we realize? Read this researched report from Esoteric Morgan from GLP


Synopsis of research claim:

1. Cloud seeding was used during Chernoybl to cause rain to arrest, slow or mitigate radiation airborne contamination from reaching Moscow and other important locations, leaving Belarus to bear the brunt.
2. Using Silver to seed the clouds, this can cause radiocative Iodine do be further spread.
3. The Japanese are stating that due to sever drought, cloud seeding will be used to cause more rain to assist in this drought (however, further research also indicates that this methodology has been proven to be ineffective)
So, why the cloud seeding?

Thread: Tokyo Switches On Rainmaking Machine To Combat Severe Drought!!

It is a plan to seed clouds over Tokyo to induce rain.

After reading the rain angle, I was certain it needed to be rebuttd, so I have just spent HOURS researching this, and found that this could very well DESTROY Tokyo.

I do not want to post this 'research' on that thread, because it will get lost.

I am reproducing it here for you to see, and use as your own, if you think I may have stumbled upon something important.

Remember that I wrote it as a reply to that thread, so that's the way it still reads. I hope you don't mind me sending this to you, as it is VERY LONG. But covers a lot of variables.

========

I think this is a very very BAD idea!

Something is telling me here's more going on here than looking to make it rain.

Considering hot particles are in the air from Fukushima, rain -which captures isotopes as it comes down- is not exactly what you'd want falling on people, land, food and drinking water.

"It is believed, although not confirmed, that Russia partook in cloud seeding in order to orchestrate the radioactive clouds to rain over a relatively unpopulated area of Belaurs rather than to risk that they would rain over the much more densely populated cities of Moscow or St. Petersburg. The result is that the plains of Belarus received the brunt of the radioactive storm, and there is still radioactive fallout in the area, decades after the fact-a fallout that has killed and deformed many."

'How we made the Chernobyl rain'

By Richard Gray12:01AM BST 22 Apr 2007

"Russian military pilots have described how they created rain clouds to protect Moscow from radioactive fallout after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.

Major Aleksei Grushin repeatedly took to the skies above Chernobyl and Belarus and used artillery shells filled with silver iodide to make rain clouds that would "wash out" radioactive particles drifting towards densely populated cities.

More than 4,000 square miles of Belarus were sacrificed to save the Russian capital from the toxic radioactive material."...

...the population in Belarus was exposed to radiation doses 20 to 30 times higher than normal as a result of the rainfall, causing intense radiation poisoning in children.
read more: [link to www.telegraph.co.uk]
Link

AND, it can produce fierce downpours [which I have also read are unpredictable and unreliable]:

"As early as WWII, experiments had been conducted that successfully made it possible to 'alter' the natural course of weather by dropping silver iodide from a plane onto the top of clouds. The result is not only a near-immediate rain, but also a much more fierce rain than usual."
[link to voices.yahoo.com]
Link

One has to wonder when a technology this old is still considered in a development and research stage, wile banned/illegal in many of our states and some countries.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, I looked a bit into silver iodide to see if it has any of it's own radioactive properties...which it may or may not, as it seems to appear in both radioactive and non-radioactive forms, although I could not find anything on its non-radioactive form that explicitly said 'non-radioactive silver iodide" to add here.

"Retention and relatively rapid absorption of iodine has also been observed in mice and sheep that
inhaled radioiodine as either sodium iodide or silver iodide particulate aerosols..." 

[link to patents.justia.com]
Link

"In 1934 It was reported by Szilard and Chalmers that radioactive iodine produced by thermal neutron irradiation of ethyl iodide could be extracted into an aqceous phase. Then by being reduced to iodide and precipitated as silver iodide, the concentrated radioactive iodide could be obtained (253)."
[link to deepblue.lib.umich.edu]
Link


With all this in mind, I can only wonder if seeding these clouds is somehow designed to help explain-away increased radioactivity in Tokyo...because if it rains, there WILL be much higher levels.

The fact that the process is said to have devastated Belarus makes Japan's plan sound either tragically stupid, or deceptively criminal.

Here's more to consider:

Silver iodide has applications in medicine as a localized radiation source for treatment of cancers.

"radioactive implants comprising iodine-125 in the form of silver iodide used as a radioactive source in brachytherapy:"
[link to www.trademarkia.com]

----------

FINALLY It may be that someone in Japan has read the following two studies and has convinced authorities there that employing parts of such models is better than doing nothing, especially as people are starting to want something more than being told to smile.

These papers show that Silver Iodide is also used as a means to capture radioactive iodine, although from what I've read temperatures of about 100° C. or higher are needed, and this MUST be done in a closed chamber:

Radioactive Iodine Capture in Silver-Containing Mordenites through Nanoscale Silver Iodide Formation:

very short excerpt:
"The effective capture and storage of radiological iodine (129I) remains a strong concern for safe nuclear waste storage and safe nuclear energy. Silver-containing mordenite (MOR) is a longstanding benchmark for iodine capture; however, the molecular level understanding of this process needed to develop more effective iodine getters has remained elusive.

Patent application title: RADIOACTIVE IODINE ADSORBENT AND RADIOACTIVE IODINE REMOVAL APPARATUS

"In a nuclear power plant such as a nuclear generation facility, it is an important issue to suppress emission of radioactive gas, particularly radioactive iodine composed of an organic iodine compound whose main component is molecular iodine (129I2, 131I2, 133I2, hereinafter, simply "I2") and methyl iodide (CH3129I, CH3131I, CH3133I, hereinafter, simply "CH3I") to the air, from a standpoint of preserving the ambient environment."

Technical Problem

[0011] In a conventional adsorbent in which alumina is impregnated with silver nitrate or silver sulfate and an organic layer is provided on the surface thereof as described in Patent Literature 2, a high radioactive iodine removal performance can be obtained in a relatively high temperature atmosphere of about 100° C. or higher. However, the radioactive iodine removal performance decreases at a normal temperature, and thus it becomes difficult to obtain a sufficient radioactive iodine removal performance and to obtain an adsorbent that can maintain a high radioactive iodine removal performance stably in a high-humidity atmosphere, and the adsorbent may not be able to be used for a long time.

Solution to Problem

[0017] According to a second aspect of the present invention, there is provided the radioactive iodine adsorbent according to the first aspect, wherein the impregnated substance further contains at least one of potassium iodide, iodine, and silver.

===================

So, while there's a good deal of information to be found on the use of silver iodide to seed clouds and such, why the Japanese would employ this when studies show the following, makes no sense:

-that it could be radioactive
-that results are short-lived and unpredictable
-that it can cause crazy HEAVY downpours and flooding
-but, it NOT considered an effective remedy for drought
-that it can even cause snow (read aboutits use in New Zealand)
-that it will capture upper level radiation and rain it down onto populations with devastating effects, such as cause worse radiation exposure by super-contaminating EVERYTHING, even food and water.


This is why I am somewhat doubtful of the official story.

I know that desperate situations may require desperate measures, but potential genocide is not something to 'try' in hopes that this time it works out better.

Rice Crisis: More importantly, Bio-accumulation and the severity in Japan

New Page 1
[snip]

Rice Crisis

The entire part of the Japanese nation that produces food is contaminated.
"...Farmers in the city of Tamura, Fukushima Prefecture, have begun planting rice in a district once designated a no-go zone because of radioactive fallout ejected by the disaster-hit Fukushima No. 1 power plant.
It is the first time since the March 2011 core meltdowns that rice intended for sale has been planted in any former hot zone within 20 km of the power plant. Saturday’s rice planting was carried out in Tamura’s Miyakojimachi district, about 15 km [9.4 miles] from the plant. Residents can enter without permission during the daytime but aren’t allowed to stay overnight."
“..Rice contaminated with radioactive cesium has been detected in Miyagi Prefecture. It is the first time that contaminated rice has been discovered outside of Fukushima Prefecture. The rice, which at 240 Bq/kg exceeded government-mandated limits by almost two-and-a-half times, was not sold to the public. Prefectural officials have requested that nearby farmers refrain from shipping rice and other produce until further testing can be conducted…”

"Let them eat rice"

According to Rana Bahadur Budhathoki, head of NFC [Nepal Food Corporation] in Jumla, Japanese rice is not selling well since the last two months. According to the locals, the main cause of aversion toward the new rice received as donation from Japan is that it doesn’t taste good and it allegedly caused diarrhea in some cases.
A whopping 460,000 kg of Japan-donated rice is languishing in the warehouse of government-run Nepal Food Corp. in a district in far-western Nepal because the grain has failed to find takers. Even when asked not to send rice they did.
 

Dilution is the solution

The contaminated rice will be made "safe" by diluting it with rice grown elsewhere.
Since contamination is measured by bq/kg, that would actually work. If rice contained 100bq/kg of cesium (which is already a safe amount) and it was mixed 50/50 with rice containing 0 bq/kg, the resulting rice would be 50 bq/kg.
Now, since the governments and TEPCO [Tokyo Electric Power Company] have lied constantly since the Construction of the Fukushima Plant, what in the world makes anybody think that their telling the complete truth now? They keep lowering the bar on safety.
The problem is, we do not KNOW if U.S. sold rice is from Japan or not, thanks to Hillary. Also thanks to Ms. Clinton General Mills can buy all the rice flour Japan sells, no detectors needed. So if you don't want radioactive Rice Chex then choose alternatives.

Facility was built very fast and discreetly with the mission of burning 600 tons of radioactive waste. burning locally contaminated rice straw, grass, leaves and cow dung compost. People are protesting in front of the facility. As some of the banners indicate; people and children still live there. Incompetent bureaucrats are allowing this to happen! This is unacceptable. Local authorities are as guilty as the central clowns running the show!

Among the protestors, Mr. Horikawa, who refused to sign the deal of this incinerator confronted Mr. Inoue, the Deputy Minister of MOE, who paid a sudden visit to Samegawa. Horikawa san pointed at Inoue san, exposing that MOE's conduct is illegal and unacceptable. Inoue, however, had none of it and rushed inside of the facility, ignoring Horikawa.
