Global Green USA: The Future of Nuclear Energy, Chernobyl and Fukushima:

At 2:00 in Natalia Manzurova, nuclear engineer called to Chernobyl for 4+ years to study radiation’s effect on the environment and to help cleanup workers:

To cover the burning reactor core, they started dropping bags of sand and cement into the reactor and all this stuff — due to very high temperature — melted, and covered the burning reactor as a lid. And for 24 hours the whole world was on the edge of a very huge catastrophe because from above the reactor was covered, was closed, but it was going to burn down. If the reactor burned through the ground, then all this huge radioactivity will go to underground water, and it will go all around the world.

In Fukushima, now they are cooling the upper part of the reactor, but the center of the reactor has been melted down, and this melted reactor will discharge huge temperature to the bottom of the reactor. If the tragedy that the melted reactors will go through the bottom to the underground, it’s the question.

Russian miners, in order for this not to happen, they had to drill tunnels. Sacrificing their own lives, they put cement into the tunnels on the bottom of the reactor, so the reactor will be closed from beneath.

———–

People think of the Japanese as being technologically much more advanced than much of the world.  What did they do @ Fukushima?  Absolutely nothing.  TEPCO has murdered us all, and instead of being made to answer for their crimes, they changed their name, and off to business as usual, literally walking away from the continuous radiation leaks, further murdering the rest of the world.  Why the hell does no one care?  Are we the equivalent of the walking zombies of tv shows?

Detailed Analysis Results in the Port of Fukushima Daiichi NPS, around Discharge Channel and Bank Protection, Jan.30, 2014:

“The highest dose among the results previously announced in the ‘Detailed Analysis Results in the Port of Fukushima Daiichi NPS, around Discharge Channel and Bank Protection’”

Wall St. Journal, Jan. 31, 2014: Among the radioactive materials that were dispersed at the site, the potentially lethal alkaline earth metal [strontium] poses the biggest immediate concern, because, unlike cesium, it doesn’t get trapped in soil and tends to accumulate in bones of fish and animals if ingested. [...] strontium has been slowly moving to deeper into ground water, which could be moving toward the ocean. [...] Radiation levels in groundwater sampled from several monitoring wells have been very slowly rising since last summer and radioactive strontium has been detected since October, according to data from Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

The Asahi Shimbun, Jan. 31, 2014: A team of reporters from The Asahi Shimbun visited the site on Jan. 29. [...] Another problem exists underneath the embankment on the eastern side of the plant site. Radioactive materials have been found to be spreading under that embankment. [...]

City Channel 4, Published Jan. 21, 2014 (at 35:45):

Audience Question: I recently received a YouTube depicting radioactive contamination across the Pacific near to the U.S. West Coast as a result of the Fukushima reactor. No other news source appears to have acknowledged this scenario least of all the mainstream media. Is that fact or fiction.

Dr. Maureen McCue, founding member, faculty, and former director of the University of Iowa Global Health Studies Program and adjunct clinical professor in the Colleges of Public Health: I think it’s it fact that the mainstream media has not covered the phenomenon. I think we also experience regulatory capture in this country. I don’t know and I don’t think any of us know how much of the contamination is approaching the West Coast. It makes sense, when you look at ocean currents and wind streams, and the movement of marine life, that it will eventually reach the West Coast. In what concentrations, what amounts, nobody actually knows. It’s predicted that in fact it may concentrate as much on the West Coast as anywhere in Fukushima as it keeps coming wave after wave.

Asahi Shimbun, Dec. 14, 2013: Record radiation levels detected in well at Fukushima nuke plant [...] 1.8 million becquerels of [strontium and other] beta-ray sources per liter of water were detected at a monitoring well [...] in an area close to the sea near the No. 2 reactor building on Dec. 12. The well is located close to trenches holding highly radioactive water. TEPCO said the reading apparently spiked after highly radioactive water seeped into the surroundings through failed parts of the trenches.

Groundwater from well No. 1-16 (pg. 3), Collected Dec. 12, 2013:

Cs-137: 1.8 becquerels per liter (Bq/L)

NHK: More damage being discovered in Fukushima Reactor No. 1 — “Destruction” at containment vessel — Concerned about tons of water draining from unknown cracks and holes (VIDEO)

NHK, Jan. 31, 2014: TEPCO to look for more leaks at Fukushima reactor — The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is slowly finding out more about the damage at one of the reactor containment vessels. The destruction was caused by 2011 accident. [...] The engineers are investigating leaks in a number of places in the containment vessel that houses the core at the No.1 reactor [and] estimate that up to 3.3 tons of water per hour is leaking from the 2 leaks. The operator is pouring 4.5 tons of cooling water an hour into the reactor. This means more than one ton of water may be leaking from unknown holes or cracks, as the water does not stay in the containment vessel.

NHK Newsline, Jan. 31, 2014: [Tepco is] discovering more damage at the reactor containment vessel. It says it’s going to take steps to avoid further contamination in  the area […] The engineers have also learned that more than one ton of water [per hour] is leaking form elsewhere. They plan to send in a robot again to search for other possible problems. They say they will expand their search to include the suppression chamber linked to the containment vessel. […]

Title: Model simulations on the long-term dispersal of 137Cs released into the Pacific Ocean off Fukushima

Source: IOPscience

Author: Erik Behrens, Franziska U Schwarzkopf, Joke F Lübbecke and Claus W Böning

Date: July 9, 2012

Emphasis Added

In the following years, the tracer cloud continuously expands laterally, with maximum concentrations in its central part heading east. While the northern portion is gradually invading the Bering Sea, the main tracer patch reaches the coastal waters of North America after 5–6 years, with maximum relative concentrations ( > 1 × 10−4) covering a broad swath of the eastern North Pacific between Vancouver Island and Baja California. Simultaneously some fraction of the southern rim of the tracer cloud becomes entrained in the North Equatorial Current (NEC), resulting in a westward extending wedge around 20°N that skirts the northern shores of the Hawaiian Archipelago. After 10 years the concentrations become nearly homogeneous over the whole Pacific, with higher values in the east, extending along the North American coast with a maximum (~1 × 10−4) off Baja California. The southern portion of the tracer cloud is carried westward by the NEC across the subtropical Pacific, leading to increasing concentrations in the Kuroshio regime again.[...]

Region I = Western Pacific

With caution given to the various idealizations (unknown actual oceanic state during release, unknown release area, no biological effects included, see section 3.4), the following conclusions may be drawn. (i) Dilution due to swift horizontal and vertical dispersion in the vicinity of the energetic Kuroshio regime leads to a rapid decrease of radioactivity levels during the first 2 years, with a decline of near-surface peak concentrations to values around 10 Bq m−3 (based on a total input of 10 PBq). The strong lateral dispersion, related to the vigorous eddy fields in the mid-latitude western Pacific, appears significantly under-estimated in the non-eddying (0.5°) model version. (ii) The subsequent pace of dilution is strongly reduced, owing to the eastward advection of the main tracer cloud towards the much less energetic areas of the central and eastern North Pacific. (iii) The magnitude of additional peak radioactivity should drop to values comparable to the pre-Fukushima levels after 6–9 years (i.e. total peak concentrations would then have declined below twice pre-Fukushima levels). (iv) By then the tracer cloud will span almost the entire North Pacific, with peak concentrations off the North American coast an order-of-magnitude higher than in the western Pacific.

MIT Center for International Studies — Japan’s Continuing Nuclear Nightmare, Oct 24, 2013:

Ken Buesseler, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (at 1:30:00 in): Talking about some of the failures […] what I’ve discovered on the academic side, is that when we went to offer our service, we wanted to go and help out, we didn’t have an agency in this country that really had an interest. NOAA was given the authority to look at this disaster and see what the US response should be. Their reaction was to continue this modeling effort to try and model where these things might be at. Not to do the on-the-ground field efforts. They said we don’t do that, we don’t measure radionuclides. Then they’d point across the aisle to the Department of Energy […] the ocean, that’s not their thing, it’s salty — that’s not their problem. Here we have in our country many reactors on oceans and don’t have even an authority or body that has a mission that includes fate of those radionuclides in the ocean. I think that’s a failure that we still haven’t solved […] It’s very obvious when you hear the stories about leaking tanks on land getting into the ocean, there’s a connection there. But we failed to fill that in, our ability to understand the consequences. […] One example of something we’re still trying to plug up as a failure.

‘Your Call’ hosted by Rose Aguilar, KALW, Jan. 16, 2014:

Ken Buesseler, senior scientist in marine chemistry & geochemistry at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (At 5:30 in): Historical weirdness going on — NOAA doesn’t study radionuclides per se at all in their programs, so they were looking at some of the debris and their predictions, but not the radioactive contaminants. That typically falls to the Department of Energy, but they tend to only focus their resources and expertise on land and groundwater […] not the general spread of radionuclides in the marine environment. So, we kind of fell between the cracks […] no one was responsible.

He then proceeded to gut the marine animal and found there was white puss or goo like substance along the muscle tissue everywhere.  [...] a very small bit of the fat was chewed on and nothing else. We have crows, they are known to eat just about anything, even silicone off the roof… this animal is not being touched. [...]

 

Local Environmental Observers (LEO) Network, May 29, 2012: Unusual bearded seal harvested — Shishmaref, May 29, 2012 (sea mammal) One of our local hunters, hunting about 14 miles west of Shishmaref, reports shooting a regular Bearded Seal [...] The first thing the hunter visually noticed was a clear slime within the mouth [...] upon butchering there was hardly any fat, and further butchering, the liver was described as small than normal, approximately 1/2 the size of a normal liver for that size. The next thing they noticed was the one side kidney was approximately twice as big as the other, and that the bigger kidney had the appearance of darker color, and also most black. [...]

Hopefully this seal will bring us closer to understanding what may be causing the illness and disease that our marine mammals are being affected by. According to researchers, this is only the second seal that is discolored, the other came from Russia, colored orange. [...]

 Nikita Ovsyanikov, Russian Academy of Sciences, March 2012: Almost all diseased seals found on Wrangel Island beaches were only partially consumed by polar bears. [It] is very different from how they eat normal carcasses [...]
