Fukushima – 200 MILLION Gallons Of Highly Radioactive Water Are Pouring Into Pacific Per Day, Or More; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/03/fukushima-200-million-gallons-of-highly.html

There is a huge ‘death zone’ radioactive river pouring out of Fukushima and no one is studying the effect of both the initial accident, this 400 tons a day ‘leak’, the huge garbage plume and the effects of both the chemicals, oil, and radiation on ocean creature life, much less the effects of Fukushima on human beings and animals such as seals, whales, polar bears and more.

Ignoring Fukushima will not change what happens. This deadly radiation will have a negative effect. Certainly the nuclear industry does not want anyone researching this, so they are putting their money into promoting new plants, through the IAEA and their favorite politicians.

MAN MADE RADIATION CONCENTRATES AND ACCUMULATES AS IT MOVES UP THE FOOD CHAIN LONG TERM

Some things are known about how low dose radiation concentrates up the food chain to humans.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/01/fukushima-pacific-ocean-radiation-and.html

As the supposedly diluted and harmless radiation kills or sickens algae, this concentrated radiation moves up the food chain. Some of these contaminated algae move up the food chain and are eaten by fish. These fish are eaten by larger fish. Each step up the food chain concentrates the radiation more and more.

Via CodeShutdown October 8, 2014 “For perspective, 47 Bq/ft^3 average contamination of the top 200 feet of ocean is within a reasonable agreement to tests and models which show up to 30 Bq/m^3 coming to the U.S. coast and this is bio-concentrated by plankton 10,000 to 100,000 times. Bad news for plankton, plankton eaters and the animals and people who eat them! The radioactive plankton sink to the bottom and marine biologists should be testing all of this!

The average annual concentration of 90Sr in water supplies should not exceed 8 pCi/L (0.3 Bq/L)

Harvested fish will contain 40 times the radioactivity of the sea water. Infectious, cardiovascular and other diseases are bigger contributors to death than cancer;

70 TO 90 PERCENT OF ALL HUMAN BODY RADIATION CONTAMINATION GOES INTO BODY AFTER A NUCLEAR ACCIDENT VIA FOOD AND DRINKS, OVER TIME

70 to 90% of all man made radiation comes into and bio accumulates in the human body via food and drinks long term, long after the nuclear accident spill, plume or accident is gone from the news screens.

There are many studies and charts that break down exactly how much of each radioactive element accumulates where and over what period of time, so this subject is not in dispute. Of course, that does not stop the pro nuclear apologists from saying that all of this radiation being ingested is ‘good’ for you, despite it being a heavy metal poison, and then radioactive on top of that.

FEB 2015 UPDATE: 200 Kilometers Of Canadian Pacific Coast Line Dead Zone Devoid of 99% Of All Life, Almost All Tidal Zone Species Missing Entirely
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/08/200-kilometers-of-canadian-pacific.html

Something very bad and very deadly is happening in the Pacific oceans. Maybe radiation from Fukushima is just one of many things that are causing the mass die off of just about all life in the Pacific. The supposed experts deny anything really bad is happening and blame ‘viruses’ on the mass die off of many sea life species such as sea stars, seals, and more.

They refuse to test the tissues of dead animals and other sea creatures for radiation or heavy metals such as uranium or plutonium.

WHAT EFFECT DOES FUKUSHIMA RADIATION HAVE ON OXYGEN PRODUCING ALGAE IN OCEANS?

As some percentage of the algae die in massive numbers from radiation effects, they fall to the ocean bottom, potentially causing massive effects on the oxygen content of the bottom layer of ocean, plus a reduction in oxygen production in the top layer of ocean. This issue also deserves study by scientists.

What we breathe is oxygen. 70% of all oxygen produced on the planet comes from algae in the ocean. What if that algae is reduced by 90% or even disappears?

What if the oxygen producing algae is replaced by bacteria that feed on dead algae falling to the bottom of the ocean, which then creates massive amounts of poisonous and deadly hydrogen sulfide, also know as H2S? Reports from some experts are that dead zones in the ocean are increasing all around the world due to this reason.

PLUTONIUM WENT ALL THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD AFTER 3/11 FUKUSHIMA MEGA NUCLEAR DISASTER

On top of all of these things and more, humanity all around the world is just waiting for the 8-10 year time clock to run out, which is when the plutonium and all of the other cancer causing Fukushima nuclear time bombs will be triggered.

PLUTONIUM AND OTHER MAN MADE ELEMENTS MOVING UP THE FOOD CHAIN

Meanwhile, Fukushima radiation and particularly extra toxic and deadly plutonium is moving up the food chain and through the food web, contaminating, killing, sickening, causing havoc and chaos. Fishermen can no longer catch fish. They are saying catches have dropped off a cliff for many species. Many more are showing up sick, bleeding, full of tumors, different colors, etc.

US Pacific Coast Seaweed Shows With Fukushima Cesium Contamination – October 19th, 2013 – SimplyInfo; New testing done by Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering found Fukushima cesium in US Pacific sea weed. The samples were standardized against a known amount of cesium 137 and cobalt 60. The finding of cesium 134 would indicate this is at least partially from the Fukushima nuclear disaster. “Washington State Pacific coast eel weed sample contained 8.14 Bq/Kg of Cs134 and 8.88 Bq/Kg of Cs137. It also contained 3.7 Bq/Kg of Co60” http://www.fukuleaks.org/web/?p=11613

INITIATION OF PLANT SHUTDOWN DUE TO RCS LEAKAGE

“On July 23, 2015 at 0115 [CDT], Callaway Plant initiated a shutdown required by Technical Specifications (TS). At 2139 [CDT] on July 22, 2015, TS 3.4.13 Condition A was entered due to unidentified RCS leakage being in excess of the 1 gpm TS limit. The leak was indicated by an increase in containment radiation readings, increasing sump levels, and decreasing levels in the Volume Control tank (VCT).

“A containment entry identified a steam plume; due to personnel safety the exact location of the leak inside the containment building could not be determined.

“At this time radiation levels inside [the] containment are stable and slightly above normal. There have been no releases from the plant above normal levels.

“The [NRC] Senior Resident Inspector was notified.”

* * * UPDATE PROVIDED BY ROB STOUGH TO JEFF ROTTON AT 1757 EDT ON 07/23/2015 * * *

“Callaway entered TS 3.4.13 Condition B at 0053 [CDT on July 23, 2015] for the subject leakage since reactor coolant pressure boundary leakage could not be ruled out by visual inspection. The estimated leak rate when the decision was made to shut down the plant was approximately 1.8 gpm. The plant entered Mode 3 at 0600 CDT.

“Additionally, at approximately 1315, it was determined that the duration of the required outage would be greater than three days, thus requiring notification to the Missouri Public Service Commission. This offsite notification is reportable to the NRC [per 10CFR50.72(b)(2)(xi)], and the above table has been updated to reflect this reporting requirement.”

Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s “Big Science Blog” by Jake Ellison, Nov. 13, 2014 (emphasis added): Tiny amount of Fukushima radiation reaches West Coast; does it worry you? A water sample taken in August from about 100 miles west of Eureka, California, has been found to contain a small amount of radiation from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear plant disaster… Basically, scientists say it’s nothing more than a curiosity or confirmation of models… but the rumors and fears surrounding radiation contamination are hard to dampen. This is the second time radiation from Japan has shown up on our shores. In March [2014], we reported: “A bit of cesium-134… has been detected in a soil sample taken from the beach… in British Columbia”

Some may recall that radioactive material from Japan has shown up on the shores of the Pacific Northwest even before March 2014 — actually about 3 years before:
Particles North America
The University of Texas at Austin — Cockrell School of Engineering: The amount of radiation released during the Fukushima nuclear disaster was so great that the level of atmospheric radioactive aerosols in Washington state was 10,000 to 100,000 times greater than normal levels… “I think the conclusion was that this was a really major event here,” said Cockrell School of Engineering Associate Professor Steven Biegalski of the Fukushima disaster… Biegalski was on a faculty research assignment at [Pacific Northwest National Laboratory] in Richland, Wash… “As the measurements came in sooner and at higher concentrations than we initially expected, we quickly came to the conclusion that there were some major core melts at those facilities,” Biegalski said. “I remember being in the lab thinking, ‘Wow, if this is all true we have a far more bigger accident than what we’re hearing right now.”

Washington State Department of Health: Releases from… Fukushima showed that a radiological event can happen anywhere, anytime, and affect conditions thousands of miles from the source.

Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen interviewed by Alex Smith of RadioEcoshock, Oct. 29, 2014 (at 21:30 in): “We found gardens in Vancouver that had… a clear signature of Fukushima radiation. We’ve seen that as far north as a little bit north of Vancouver, all the way down to Portland, Oregon… So clearly the West Coast was nailed.”

Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen interviewed by Libbe HaLevy of Nuclear Hotseat, Nov. 12, 2014 (at 44:30 in): “I would expect that as a result of these hot particles that have blown all over Japan and Seattle and Vancouver and Portland… I would expect and increase in lung cancer.”

Without measurements we’ll never know, so the concern will always be there… We should be monitoring… whales and seals… I haven’t seen any data that suggests it’s of concern, again that’s partly because I’ve not seen a lot of data… We need measurements.

Teruyuki Nakajima,University of Tokyo and Science Council of Japan (emphasis added):

International Expert #1 (at 38:10): My name is [inaudible] from the International Atomic Energy Agency’s marine laboratory in Monaco. I have a question regarding the Iodine-131. We were very surprised that the Iodine-131 was still discharged at very high levels in July [2011]. We had a lot of discussion about what would be the reason… You’d expect that, according to the shorter half life for Iodine-131, this would decrease much, much stronger — much faster… My briefings to member states of the IAEA was that we would expect within a few weeks there would be no more Iodine-131, but this was not true. This was still measured at high, extremely high levels in July and August of 2011. I wrote in my statement given out by the IAEA, that the reactors might still be active. There was a big discussion about this…
Nakajima: Yeah, I think the reactors still emitted the materials in… not sure about July… we have soil measurement in June, I think that still we observed Iodine-131 from the soil measurement. If that is terminated in April, we wouldn’t measure that at this point, but we still had that measurement. And still, the data are not totally thoroughly investigated. We have several remaining data we need to look at. Some people have those data, so we need to dig this kind of data set. Also, monitoring post, we had [problems?] as I told, we couldn’t use, but some are surviving and not rescued. Recently that kind of data is coming in, so we will see that data for Iodine-131…
International Expert #2 (at 43:45): I’m sorry, but I’d like to go back to the question of my colleague from the IAEA. If I understand correctly, the question is not whether… in July or August, there still were releases of Iodine. If that is the case, it would change completely the picture about the accident. That was the question that was never clarified, either by TEPCO or by [inaudible].
Nakajima: There’s some evidence [of the reactors] releasing radiogenic gas…
International Expert #2: The basic question is the following — several weeks after Chernobyl it was crystal clear there were no more releases of Iodine. If that’s not crystal clear at Fukushima, this means several weeks or months after the accident there were fission reactions. That’s the question. This question was presented, as my colleague said, at several meetings of the IAEA and that was never made clear?… That is an important question because it would change the composition of the releases…
International Expert #3 (at 46:45): I also want to [inaudible] the data. I agree with him about the calculation… Iodine had been measured in such amounts in July… Iodine from those same samples — that would allow you [Nakajima] to actually check whether this is satisfied by resuspension, as you claim…. Observations make clear, [Iodine-131 is too high by] orders of magnitude, even in the best cases — and that’s a lot…
Nakajima: We have all the data but I haven’t checked Iodine-131… But, still, we are making the data set… Maybe I could check with my file data… (Lights go on) Further questions? OK, well, thank you very much. Sorry.

Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) 35th Annual Meeting — The Fukushima Legacy, Nov. 13, 2014: In the face of lack of knowledge and data from regional governments regarding potential risks of Fukushima-associated radiation in the Pacific Northwest [there’s a] need to conduct lines of research and monitoring aimed to understand baseline data and bioaccumulation potential of radionuclides and radiation risks… Fukushima… emerged as a global threat for the conservation of the Pacific Ocean, human health, and marine biodiversity… Despite the looming threat of radiation [there’s a] lack of radiation monitoring [in] Canada and United States. This is unfortunate, as the potential radioactive contamination of seafoods through bioaccumulation of radioisotopes in marine and coastal food webs are issues of major concern for the public health of coastal communities. Particularly vulnerable are First Nations that rely strongly on… seafoods and fish… The effects of radioactive contamination are likely to affect other top predators, including fish-eating marine mammals inhabiting offshore and coastal habitats of the region… concerns and questions remain about the long-term exposure and bioaccumulation of radioactivity in marine food webs…
SETAC — Prof. J. Alava and F.A. Gobas, Simon Fraser Univ., Nov. 13, 2014: [T]o track the long term fate and bioaccumulation of 137Cs in marine organisms… we assessed the bioaccumulation potential of 137Cs in a North West Pacific food-web… [Specifically, the] marine mammalian food web… outcomes showed that 137Cs can be expected to bioaccumulate gradually… [The] magnification factor for 137Cs [was] from 5.0 at 365 days of simulation to 30 at 10,950 days. From 1 year to 30 years of simulation, the 137Cs activities predicted in the male killer whale were 6.0 to 182 times 137Cs activities in its major prey [Chinook salmon]… This modeling work showed that in addition to the ocean dilution of 137Cs, a magnification of this radionuclide takes place in the marine food web over time.
SETAC — Dr. Erica Frank, Univ. of British Columbia, Nov. 13, 2014:  [Fukushima Daiichi is causing] ongoing radioactive contamination of coastal waters, and eventually the Pacific Ocean. This has spurred worldwide concern around conservation of marine plants… animals [and] human health… [The] accident has important implications for public and environmental health policy in North America… there is the lingering question of the effects of long-term exposure, bioaccumulation of 137Cs in marine food webs, and potential health effects on human populations. Despite all of these concerns, there is currently a paucity of [gov’t] monitoring…

Ali Hamade, Alaska’s Environmental Public Health Program Director (pdf), 2014:

  • p.15: Possible Consequences of Misinformation on Radiation — Not eating healthful… foods; Losses [of] jobs, money; Undue stress
  • p.16: Data..delivers WRONG message
  • p.17: Same data with public health concern reference level…delivers RIGHT message especially after seeing first graph.. and this… flattens to.. This!
  • Note: Some text is hidden on p. 16-17. Try ‘select all’ then copy & paste.
