‘Tokyo should no longer be inhabited’, Japanese doctor warns residents regarding radiation

In an essay addressed to his colleagues, Japanese doctor Shigeru Mita has explained why he recently moved away from Tokyo to restart his practice in western Japan: He believes that Tokyo is no longer safe to inhabit due to radioactive contamination caused by the March 11, 2011, meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

A Nuclear Waste Dump on the Shore of the Great Lakes?

This “out of sight, out of mind” mentality must end. We can’t continue to dump garbage into the oceans, waterways and air or bury it in the ground and hope it will disappear.

Is dilution really the solution to pollution—especially when it’s nuclear waste that can stay radioactive for 100,000 years? A four-member expert group told a federal joint review panel it is.

The panel is examining an Ontario Power Generation proposal to bury low- and intermediate-level nuclear waste from the Darlington, Pickering and Bruce nuclear plants in limestone at the Bruce site in Kincardine, beside Lake Huron. According to the Toronto Star, the experts reported that 1,000 cubic meters of contaminated water could leak from the site, although it’s “highly improbable.” But even if it did leak, they argued, the amount is small compared to Lake Huron’s water volume and the quantity of rain that falls into it.

Navy sailor exposed to Fukushima radiation reveals depth of government cover-up

One of these servicemen is Steve Simmons, a 17-year Navy veteran who says he sustained debilitating injuries after being called to provide aid following the disaster. Simmons, who served aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, claims that he lost the ability to use both his arms and legs, and that his hands are now "barely functional" due to radiation exposure.

Simmons and others have attempted to report these injuries to their superiors, as well as to doctors who insist that the symptoms are all just "psychological" in nature. Needless to say, nothing has been done as of yet to address the problem, which is why Simmons has joined onto a lawsuit with at least 111 others seeking monetary compensation.

Fukushima: Bad and Getting Worse

There is broad disagreement over the amounts and effects of radiation exposure due to the triple reactor meltdowns after the 2011 Great East-Japan Earthquake and tsunami. The International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) joined the controversy June 4, with a 27-page “Critical Analysis of the UNSCEAR Report ‘Levels and effects of radiation exposures due to the nuclear accident after the 2011 Great East-Japan Earthquake and tsunami.’”

Hamas Just Attempted To Create A Horrific Nuclear Disaster In The Heart Of Israel

After the horrors of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, how insane do you have to be to fire missiles directly at a major nuclear facility? No matter what side you are on in the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians, everyone should be able to agree that it is utter madness for Hamas to fire rockets at the Dimona nuclear installation in the Negev.

The temperature in the pool rose to 25.7 degrees Celsius on Monday, up 2 degrees from Sunday.

TEPCO says the temperature will reach the company's safety limit of 65 degrees in a little over a week.

The operator plans to channel seawater into the pool to curb the rise in temperature.

Nuclear Radiation Releases Continue in New Mexico

Environmental radiation releases spiked again in mid-June around the surface site of the only U.S. underground nuclear weapons waste storage facility near Carlsbad, New Mexico. The facility, the Waste Isolation Pilot Project (WIPP), has been shut down since February 14, when its isolation technology failed, releasing unsafe levels of Plutonium, Americium, and other radio-nuclides into the environment around the site.

Radiation levels in the underground storage area, 2,150 feet below the surface vary from near-normal to potentially lethal. At the time of the February accident, more than 20 WIPP workers suffered low level radioactive contamination, even though none of them were underground. WIPP assumes, but cannot confirm, that underground conditions have not changed since May 31, when the last entry team went into the mine, as reported by WIPP field manager Jose Franco on June 5:

Japanese cows develop skin spots, mysterious disease; farmers fear radiation affecting humans, too

Livestock with strange white spots covering their skin were put on display at a recent protest in front of Tokyo's agriculture ministry, according to the Associated Press (AP). Two Japanese farmers, disturbed by the unusual markings, are calling on government officials to conduct a real investigation into what they believe is radiation poisoning from the shuttered Fukushima nuclear plant.

The damage is affecting hundreds of animals on farms near the plant, barring the sale of milk and meat due to safety concerns. And the Japanese government, say the farmers, has glossed over the problem by failing to properly investigate it and come up with an explanation, all the while pretending as though nothing is wrong.

Mexican authorities have recovered dangerous iridium-192 material stolen from a truck on Thursday in Tlalnepantla, north of the capital. The container had no leakage and radioactive material did not cause harm to the population, the authorities announced.

“We located the radioactive source” the National Coordinator of Civil Protection of the Ministry of Interior Luis Felipe Puente said via his twitter. All of the material appears to be accounted for, he later added in an interview with Milenio television.

The Radioactive Waste Disaster

It was always a terrible name – The Nuclear Waste Confidence Decision. Ever since the first cupful of deadly nuclear waste was generated at Chicago’s Fermi reactor, on December 2, 1942, no one has ever had the slightest ounce of confidence about what to do with it. It was the ultimate kick-the-can-down-the-road decision. Make radioactive waste now. Worry about the disposal problem later.

Now it’s later and no permanent, safe location or technology has ever been found – and may never be found – to isolate even that first cupful of radioactive waste from the biosphere. Instead, we have a mountain of radioactive waste 70 years high.

US to sink ghost ship dislodged by Japan tsunami

The ship holds more than 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel and authorities are concerned it could interfere with the course of other vessels as it drifts through shipping lanes. A Coast Guard cutter was headed out to the ship on Thursday with plans to fire cannons loaded with high explosive rounds to sink the vessel.

The Japan earthquake triggered the world's worst nuclear crisis since the Chernobyl accident in 1986, but Alaska state health and environmental officials have said there's little need to be worried that debris landing on Alaska shores will be contaminated by radiation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If there were no threat from radiation the boat could be salvaged and sold, or sent back to the Japanese fishermen who no doubt miss it. They are NOT sinking it because of diesel fuel.

Stricter health standards for staple foods such as vegetables and rice were introduced on Sunday. Permissible levels of radioactivity were reduced from 500 to 100 becquerels per kilogram.

Health ministry officials said bamboo shoots harvested in the Kisarazu and Ichihara regions east of Tokyo were contaminated with 120 and 110 becquerels of radioactive Cesium per kilogram respectively.
