  • Since the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011 that damaged the
    Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, has poured at lease 300 Tons of
    Radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean Daily. In time this will
    contaminate all the Oceans in the world.

  • It is two years since Japan’s 9.0- magnitude earthquake, one so powerful it shifted the position of the Earth’s figure axis by as much as 6 inches and moved Honshu, Japan’s main island, 8 feet eastward. The tsunami generated by the earthquake obliterated towns, drowned almost 20,000 people and left more than 300,000 homeless. Everyone living within 15 miles of Fukushima was evacuated; many are still in temporary housing. Some will never be able to return home.
    More than 300,000 buildings were destroyed and another million damaged, including four reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on the northeast coast. The earthquake caused the immediate shutdown of this and three other nuclear-power facilities.
    2:46
    March 11 (Bloomberg) -- Kawauchi village in Fukushima, Japan, wondered how it would carry on farming following the nation's worst atomic disaster in 25 years and the radiation that followed. Now, it has figured out that farming can be done without soil. Bloomberg’s Yuriy Humber reports. (Source: Bloomberg)
    Since the earthquake, a powerful movement gained momentum to halt Japan’s use of nuclear energy, which provided 30 percent of the country’s electricity. The last of 54 nuclear reactors was shut down in May 2012. Two facilities were restarted in June 2012; 52 remain shut. Japan has therefore had to increase its imports of natural gas, low-sulfur crude oil and fuel oil at a substantial economic and environmental cost. Seventy-five percent of the country’s electricity now comes from fossil fuels.
    Accustomed to large trade surpluses, Japan, in 2012, had a record $78 billion trade deficit, thanks to increased energy imports and a drop in exports as Japanese goods became more expensive to produce.
    Radiation Threat
    And what of the lasting threat from radiation? Remarkably, outside the immediate area of Fukushima, this is hardly a problem at all. Although the crippled nuclear reactors themselves still pose a danger, no one, including personnel who worked in the buildings, died from radiation exposure. Most experts agree that future health risks from the released radiation, notably radioactive iodine-131 and cesiums-134 and - 137, are extremely small and likely to be undetectable.
    Even considering the upper boundary of estimated effects, there is unlikely to be any detectable increase in cancers in Japan, Asia or the world except close to the facility, according to a աօʀʟd ɦɛaʟtɦ օʀɢaռiʐatɨօռ report. There will almost certainly be no increase in birth defects or genetic abnormalities from radiation.
    Even in the most contaminated areas, any increase in cancer risk will be small. For example, a male exposed at age 1 has his lifetime cancer risk increase from 43 percent to 44 percent. Those exposed at 10 or 20 face even smaller increases in risk -- similar to what comes from having a whole-body computer tomography scan or living for 12 to 25 years in Denver amid background radiation in the Rocky Mountains. (There is no discernible difference in the cancer rates between people who live in Denver and those in Los Angeles or New York.)
    Rather than stand as a warning of the radiation danger posed by nuclear power, in other words, Fukushima has become a reminder that uninformed fears aren’t the same as actual risks.
    Why are the anticipated risks from Japan’s nuclear accident so small? Perhaps the most important reason is that about 80 percent of the radiation released was blown into the ocean. Radioactive contamination of the sea sounds dreadful, but because oceans naturally contain large amounts of radioactive materials, the net increase in oceanic radioactivity is minuscule.
    Another reason the public was protected is that the 200,000 or so people living within 15 miles of Fukushima were rapidly evacuated. People living in a few hotspot towns slightly farther away who didn’t leave on their own received the highest civilian doses.
    Iodine Pills
    The quarantine of radiation-contaminated foodstuffs also kept the public safe. Milk containing iodine-131 was responsible for many cases of thyroid cancer in children after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine. In Japan, nonradioactive iodine pills were distributed to the population to block uptake of radioactive iodine by the thyroid.
    In the 26 years since Chernobyl, there have been more than 6,000 cases of thyroid cancers, almost all in children who were less than 16 years old when they were exposed to iodine-131, predominately through milk and other contaminated foodstuffs. Fortunately thyroid cancer in children is rarely fatal; there have been fewer than 15 deaths. There may also be a slight increase in leukemia risk among the 600,000 workers involved in containing the accident.
    Even so, there is no convincing evidence, at least as yet, of an increased cancer risk in the thousands of evacuees from the town of Pripyat, where the reactor was located, nor among the 30 million living in contaminated lands. Also, as with Fukushima, there is no convincing evidence of birth defects or genetic abnormalities. (Gale helped treat the worst cases of radiation poisoning at Chernobyl and has been involved with the follow-up in the years since the accident. He has been involved in Japan since the catastrophe and worked with Japanese scientists to estimate health risks.)
    Radiation spikes detected in the weeks and months following the Fukushima accident caused concern and sometimes panic. One day a higher-than-permissible level of iodine-131 (300 becquerels per liter, or less than 0.00008 parts per trillion) was detected in the drinking water in Tokyo. People immediately emptied stores of bottled water. However, the amount of contamination in Tokyo water was so low, Tokyoites would have had to drink 6 quarts of it a day for a month to get the same radiation dose that an airline crew member receives in a year of flying between Los Angeles and Tokyo.
    People naturally worried about eating fish from the ocean around Fukushima, and stringent mitigation actions were taken. Bluefin tuna caught off California six months later were found to have traces of cesium-137 from Fukushima, though less ounce for ounce than the amount of radioactive potassium-40 found in a banana.
    Food Safety
    The important question is, how can we be certain any food source is safe if higher-than-normal radiation levels are detected? The best way to answer this is to consider the risk involved with eating food that may be contaminated. U.S. food safety standards, for example, often restrict the content of carcinogens, including radiation, to levels that might cause a 1-in-100,000 or 1-in-1,000,000 lifetime risk of cancer. But consider the average 50-year-old male who has a baseline risk of 43 percent to develop cancer in his lifetime. (In women, it’s 39 percent.) The contaminated food increases that 43 percent lifetime risk to 43.0000001 percent.
    Exposure to radiation isn’t always what it seems. Of course, people in the path of a radioactive cloud may receive a dangerous dose of radiation, depending on the concentration of radionuclides, atmospheric conditions and their location -- indoors or outside -- when the plume passes. Immediate countermeasures are essential. In Japan, laudably, most people were sheltered in place and then evacuated in a relatively controlled manner. Some people received iodine tablets.
    An independent commission found considerable confusion among Japanese government officials, personnel at the nuclear power facility and executives at Tokyo Electric Power Company in Tokyo. Furthermore, emergency authorities didn’t share or use some important data on radioactive contamination, and that caused some people to be evacuated to zones of higher radioactive contamination. And some children remained in high- radiation areas far too long. Nevertheless, official actions largely protected the public, and most continuing fears of health risks from radiation have little basis in fact.
    Prudence and safety must be paramount in the use of nuclear energy -- in fact, in the use of any kind of energy. Although immediate and long-term health risks of nuclear accidents are often exaggerated, social, psychological and economic consequences are obviously enormous. We don’t believe that nuclear energy is always the best choice, but it is important to carefully weigh the risks and benefits of using nuclear energy compared with other sources of fuel to generate electricity.
    Fossil Fuels
    Japan has few domestic energy resources and depends on imports for about 85 percent of its energy. What price will the country pay if it abandons nuclear energy and uses only fossil fuels? Air pollution from coal-fired power plants causes about 500 times more deaths per unit of electricity produced than radiation from nuclear plants does. Electricity produced from oil isn’t much safer. Even natural gas causes about 60 times more deaths than nuclear does because of pollution. And consider that more than 100,000 coal miners died in the U.S. in the past century and more than 6,000 die every year in China.
    If, in response to Fukushima, Japan switches to more fossil fuels, the resulting carbon dioxide emissions, greenhouse gases and global warming could affect all of us. Already, because of the nuclear shutdown since the accident, there is no longer any chance Japan will meet its commitments in the 2009 Copenhagen Accord to cut greenhouse-gas emissions from 1990 levels by 25 percent by 2020. The country’s 2012 estimate for greenhouse gases is about 1.3 billion tons, the most since 2007, making Japan the fifth top emitter worldwide.
    We support stringent safety requirements for operating all nuclear power facilities, in Japan and everywhere else, including the Bushehr facility in Iran. But no energy-producing operation is foolproof: mines collapse, ships run aground, terrorists blow up pipelines and nuclear plants have meltdowns (fortunately rarely). Citizens of Japan are understandably traumatized by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. But to make intelligent decisions about radiation, it’s best to rely on facts -- and not let emotional or illogical fears get in the way.
    (Robert Peter Gale, a visiting professor of hematology at Imperial College London, has for 30 years been involved in the global medical response to nuclear and radiation accidents. Eric Lax is a writer whose books include “The Mold in Dr. Florey’s Coat” and “Conversations with Woody Allen.” They are the authors of “Radiation: What It Is, What You Need to Know.” The opinions expressed are their own.)

  • To put radiation exposure in perspective, a dose enough to cause acute radiation sickness (if received within a short enough timespan) – 1 Sv – gives you a ~5% lifetime risk of an induced cancer.

    Unless you’re Alexander Litvinenko or you’re reading this in between scavenging for food in the radioactive wastelands after World War III, that is simply not a dose you’re ever going to get from eating regular food or breathing air, contaminated or not.

    By comparison, the lifetime risk of a fatal cancer is around 23% for men and 19% for women.

    As for these releases of radioactivity into the Pacific:
    The Fukushima leak of 40 TBq (of what is unclear – but I’m going to assume all nuclides, with Cs-137 being the major one) is less than the UK used to deliberately dump into the Irish Sea every year. And while that was reckless and irresponsible, Europe is still there and the British and Irish are not dying from cancer from our widely popular fish and chip dinners.

    In short, if after being diluted in the Pacific Ocean, the radiation had any significant effect on Californian Fisheaters or beach goers, then Japan would be an instant death zone, so contaminated that millions of half dead hairless people would be walking around blind and bleeding, puking and sh!ting from every orifice.  That's not happening, so I would not worry too much.

    Search on this forum for all the nonsense you spewed about the Gulf oil spill in 2010. Put in Oil Spill and posts older than 1 year.

    Here are some examples of what you said back then:


    Over twenty years latter they are still cleaning up from the
    EXONN VALDEZ oil tanker spill in Alaska. Most of the men in
    the clean up are now dead living to an average age of 50.
    The oil disaster in the Gulf is a 1000 times worse and
    its affects will be generations


    This is an example of what we are not hearing from  our
    national news media.  This situation in the Gulf is just beginning.

    BREAKING NEWS; REPORTS SAYS HUGH EXPLOSIONS
    CAUSED SEAFLOOR COLLAPSE BENEATH THE GULF OIL
    GUSHER:

    http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2010/05/24/breaking-news-reports-huge-explosions-seafloor-collapse-beneath-gulf-oil-spill/


    "All future updates, go to www.rense.com. He has a feature
    on the Gulf Oil that is constantly updated.
    Already, there is a video on acid rain in Germany. That
    means that the oil is already in the Atlantic Ocean.
    I am on the opinion that the oil is still gushing, and that
    it is a lie that the cap is working, because the real area
    is some miles away.
    Just because it is on TV, does not make it ..."



    Actually, in reality, the damage done was very limited in scope, the warm gulf water and bacteria soon broke the oil down and fishing and shrimping industry soon recovered.  You were wrong and a typical clucking hen shouting that the sky was falling and prone to hyperbole and panic.

    So when you say, "Fukushima will contaminate all the oceans of the world", I question your objectivity, your common sense and your intelligence, given your track record on the Gulf spill.

  • They're still going to have to dump the concrete, though. (Note the date; a month ago.) Fukushima's being at least cocooned in concrete, if not entombed. And really, they should have done it a year ago [at least, if not immediately after search and rescue].

    Japan's best bet is to keep on what it does best (tech), or maybe even pull off an ambitious Dubai-like man-made group of islands with clubs. (Everyone loves Japan; I'd imagine most would visit a Japan-based Dubai if only so their women don't get unfairly jailed.)

    But they've GOT to pour the concrete.

  • Yale Professor: Fukushima Unit 4 pool in perilous condition - “All of humanity will be threatened for thousands of years” if not able to be kept cool — Danger of collapse during storm or while attempting removal of fuel rods"

    Quote
    ...Much more serious is the danger that the spent fuel rod pool at the top of the nuclear plant number four will collapse in a storm or an earthquake, or in a failed attempt to carefully remove each of the 1,535 rods and safely transport them to the common storage pool 50 meters away. Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo. Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years...

  • .

    I met a very polite man who grew up nearby Fukushima,
    and later moved away, then, the earthquake happened.  
    His parents still had a house there near Fukushima.  They
    had to evacuate because of the radiation problem, as did
    all their neighbors.  

    After many months, they were allowed to return to their
    home, and obviously, they had a lot of "cleanup" to do.  
    But they were not able to stay there every day.  He said
    that even today, his parents are able to stay in their house
    for two days each week only.  They are required to spend
    5 days a week outside the restricted area.  

    I thought this was rather informative.

    I could only think, well, how can they put a limit on how
    many days a week you can stay in your own house?  Does
    everyone observe the same schedule?  Or are there
    security or police roaming the streets checking if house A
    is vacant because it's one of the 5 days for them, but
    house B can be occupied because today is day one of two
    when they can be present?  

    But beyond that, if it's only "safe" to be there for two days
    a week, why not 3?  Or maybe they made a mistake and it
    should only be ONE?  Or maybe 10 minutes!!!  

    There are areas where the radiation is still so bad, the guys
    going in there to do something carry a Geiger counter, and
    they know by the reading that they only have a half hour
    to go before they have to get OUT, or maybe 15 minutes or
    maybe only 3 to 5 minutes, lest they are exposed to too
    much ambient radiation.
