Kyodo News, Mar 1, 2017 (emphasis added): A former worker at the site of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster filed a lawsuit Tuesday with the Sapporo District Court seeking labor compensation from the state for his subsequent development of three types of cancer… The man was diagnosed with bladder, stomach and colon cancers between June 2012 and May 2013 after taking part in work to clear debris with heavy machinery at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex… and was exposed to 56.41 millisieverts of radiation in total, according to his written complaint. His application for labor compensation filed at a labor standards supervision office in Fukushima Prefecture was rejected in August 2013. He repeatedly filed requests for re-examination of his application but they were also rejected… But his legal team said, “It’s rare for a person to develop three types of cancer at almost the same time“…

Al Jazeera, Aug 29, 2016: Fukushima’s surfers riding on radioactive waves… An employee of the nuclear plant said that he would never swim here as the water is too contaminated. Five of his friends who work at the plant now have brain damage.



Phoenix New Times, Oct 27, 2016: On my last day in Japan, I met with disaster medicine expert Dr. Atsushi Kumagai in a small conference room in the Fukushima University Hospital, about 52 miles from the Fukushima-Daiichi power plant… Two days after the accident at Fukushima, he, along with two nurses, a radiation technician, and a radiation biologist boarded an army helicopter and flew to Fukushima University Hospital… they managed to set up a temporary and secluded hospital-within-a-hospital at FMU. No one there knew how to handle radiation exposure, which meant that Kumagai and his staff had to train the FMU employees and treat sick people at the same time. For days, the staff worked long hours, taking a few hours at night to sleep on the floor in an empty part of the building. “Every night, we had deep discussions about how to think about this all. We talked about our feelings and anxieties, about the meaning of life, and ‘can we survive?’ “We had such deep conversations, and people cried,” Kumagai says, placing his hands over his heart. “Before the accident, frankly speaking, nobody was concerned about nuclear power… It is a big problem that nobody cared… No one really understood the risk or how to measure or think about the risk,” he says.

Jersey Evening Post, Feb 25, 2017 (emphasis added): Radioactive cloud could be heading our way — A CLOUD of mysterious radioactive particles floating across Europe… could enter Jersey airspace, Environmental Health have said… scientists have yet to work out where the radiation comes from… Caroline Maffia, assistant director of Environmental Health in Jersey, said the department was aware of the situation but 24-hour-a-day air monitors placed across the Island had not detected anything yet. CAPTION: ‘We are not picking up anything at this moment. We are slightly out of the way of where it seems to be going but depending on wind direction we could detect something here,’ said Ms Maffia.

Wakefield Express, Feb 24, 2017: Mysterious radioactive cloud moves towards UK… The spike has sparked speculation that Russian president Vladimir Putin is testing nuclear weapons… However, the CTBTO (Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation) ruled out a nuclear test had recently taken place… It’s possible that the particles could have come from an incident at a nuclear reactor. The compounds may also have also come from an Iodine plant. Iodine-131 has a very short half life of just eight days, making it very radioactive…

Euronews, Feb 23, 2017: Europe baffled by “recent release” of radioactive Iodine-131… France’s IRSN stresses the amounts of radiation detected pose no health threats, but says its “detection is proof of a rather recent release”… Iodine-131, as described by the IRSN, is of anthropogenic origins – meaning an environmental pollutant originating from human activity… The mysterious origin of the radioactive element has baffled authorities, some of whom claim its presence could indicate either a secret Russian nuclear missile test launch, or a leak from a nuclear power plant. Iodine-131 has historical links to United States and Soviet nuclear tests… It has also been found among the radioactive contamination following Japan’s Fukushima reactor meltdown… The element is also commonly used in medicine… leading to speculation of a yet unidentified, or reported, leak at a pharmaceutical plant.

Gun control heartburn: Radioactive boars are amok in Fukushima


https://nuclear-news.net/2017/01/04/gun-control-heartburn-radioactive-boars-are-amok-in-fukushima/

Gun.control.heartburn.Radioactive.boars_.are_.amok_.in_.Fukushima-1.jpg

 

The “most adaptable animals that you’ll ever find” are running rampant across parts of rural Japan in the wake of the 2011 nuclear catastrophe and strict gun laws aren’t helping.

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, in which a boiling water reactor nuclear power plant largely went Chernobyl after a tsunami knocked it offline has left Japan with a host of problems to include radiation-induced health impacts, some 200,000 displaced locals and possible exposure of groundwater to melted down nuclear fuel for decades to come.

Oh yeah, and the wild hogs.

According to an article in The Washington Post last April, the boar population, lacking natural predators is booming. Worse, thousands of the animals roam an area where highly radioactive caesium-137, which has a half-life of 30 years, has been confirmed.

Most agree that the best way to eradicate the rapid population of would-be Orcs is through hunting, but in gun control-friendly Japan, that is easier said than done.

“Something that complicates wild boar management in Japan is the exceptionally restrictive ownership, use, and access to firearms,” says Dr. Mark Smith, a forestry and wildlife professor at Auburn University, told Outside online. “This includes not only the general populace, but also with researchers, wildlife biologists, and natural resource managers.”

According to the Australian-based Small Arms Survey, the rate of private gun ownership in Japan is 0.6 per 100 people with only 77 handguns in circulation and just 0.8 percent of Japanese households containing one or more legal guns, most often shotguns.

Smith went to Japan to study the problem in 2013.

“Although [recreational] hunting does occur in Japan, it is very limited,” says Smith, “and hunter numbers are declining by the year, so there are fewer and fewer hunters out there harvesting wild boar.”

Plus there is the problem with the meat. In short, there is no good way to make caesium-137 infused pork a balanced part of your complete meal without the diner glowing in the dark, no matter how much BBQ sauce you use.

In Japan, they have to incinerate the carcasses (at 1,771 degrees Fahrenheit) then obliterate the fragments left over with hammers and box them up. Carefully.

Furthermore, the animals are very smart.

“They are the most adaptable animals that you’ll ever find: we call them the ‘opportunistic omnivore,’” says Smith.

Interview with NHK journalist Morley Robertson, by the Center for Remembering 3.11, published Jun 30, 2012 (emphasis added): I begin with the radiation leakage. Radiation leakage exerts a long term effect on the environment. It contaminates our food chain, the groundwater and the ocean. And the contaminated seawater will circulate around the globe. We never know how much this will impact on the environment… We’ll never able to study such issues with empirical certainty… [Due to nuclear testing] we have already accumulated “hidden losses” of radiation damage… how much is the [Fukushima] cesium in relation to that?… I believe we should enjoy delicious food rather than worrying about the food. I enjoyed the town’s delicacy… I didn’t mind about how the beef was produced or where it came from. As long as it is tasty, it is no problem for me. With regard to radiation, I have become more optimistic. My hypothesis is that it’s no use worrying about radiation. For people in Fukushima, they have a lot to worry about their future, like damaged reputation… One reason why we have relied on nuclear plants is because we didn’t know about the facts… We need to face the facts… Rad-waste from the nuclear cycle is said to be unsolvable even after 2.5 million years.


Part II of Robertson’s Interview, published Jun 30, 2012: In 1974, then PM Tanaka declared, “Let ‘s go nuclear!”… we were issued credit cards to buy electric goods to consume the extra electricity… It is OK to say that everything was just a lie… and 3/11 happened. So we must study everything. It is no longer about what to do with Onagawa nuclear power plant, Miyagi or Tohoku. This is about what to do with Japan. This has been revealed by our vulnerability to the accident… So when we talk about “disaster“, it’s like a huge wrapping cloth expanding everyday.

NHK: Morley is a journalist… working in the fields of television, radio, and lecture meetings… he studied at the University of Tokyo and Harvard University.
Robertson’s Wikipedia entry (translated from Japanese by Microsoft): In 1968, because of father’s job moved to… Hiroshima [to work] on Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission [and] undertook study of atomic bomb patients.

FOX 43, May 5, 2015: The commission says it’s rare but anglers aren’t surprised. Jacob Myers and his family have been fishing [here] for decades. He joked about the abnormalities in the fish he’s caught over the years. “You know, we’re just waiting to catch one with 3 eyes”… [The bass] may look surprising to some, to anglers, unfortunately, it’s normal.

York Dispatch, May 9, 2015: [Experts say] the fish with the large, grotesque tumor bubbling out of its face… was very rare, and could be just a genetic anomaly… In 2011, experts raised concerns about the appearance of intersex smallmouth bass in the river. Many of the male fish’s testicles were found to contain immature eggs as well as sperm. [A USGS scientist] said about two-thirds of the male smallmouth bass in the river were showing signs of this.

John Arway, Fish & Boat Commission Executive Director, Dec 2012: A high percentage of fish in the river have sex signs of both male and female. That’s not natural. We’ve got a lot of things that show there is something going on with the fish. We don’t really know what’s causing it… We’ve got some photos from anglers that show green and white spots, which we haven’t seen on any other fish in the state.

Geoffrey Smith, Fish & Boat Commission biologist (pdf), 2010: Further analysis of YOY [young of the year] smallmouth bass confirmed the presence of… pathogens. One of these is an unrecognizable pathogen… Adult male smallmouth bass were determined to have very high rates of intersex: a condition in which female egg cells are found in the testes of males… It appears that yet unmeasured variables may be acting on the smallmouth bass population.

The abomination of radiation contamination & it’s obfuscation continues to thwart scientific postulation and the oceanographers / biologists therefore feign discombobulation while oceanic desertification emanating from the Japanese nation and its tsunami-wrecked triple melt down nuclear ionization add to our vexation leading to improvisation of divination and other prayers for the acclimatization of all beings amidst their consternation and habitat degradation. Maybe if we employ levitation we can remove the lost melted-through cores that underwent detonation – sorry for the long dissertation & aggravation, lack of capitalization and for pointing a finger at anhialation while the population fails to fathom meaning within the sterilization & mutation & termination of our ocean brethren whilst we witness the germination of extermination & turn a blind eye to the devastation and species disintegration- perhaps we all need to find a new home in another constellation. Or wake up and attempt to save ourselves and the planet – that’s the path to our salvation. Turning away and focusing on other things ensure a continuation of species eradication. It will be our turn soon enough- what happens when the ocean is dead? Fish consumption has reached an all time high. Perhaps it’s time to undergo consideration that may save our civilization. We need an evaporation of hesitation. Some would call the cover up an Obamanation, others would say its a prime minister Abe rration.

Asahi Shimbun, Jun 17, 2015 (emphasis added): The government [and TEPCO] announced… removal of spent nuclear fuel from storage pools… will be delayed by up to three years… due to their new policy of “risk reduction over speed.” This delay, right from the start, must mean that the old road map was poorly planned. Are [they] really able to now foretell that the delay will be three years at most? And why was risk reduction not their top priority until now?… In autumn 2013, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared… the situation was “under control.”… it has become abundantly clear that the situation is anything but under control, and that the previous decommissioning road map failed to accurately assess the high level and extensive spread of radiation contamination. Removing debris releases radioactive substances into the atmosphere…
http://ajw.asahi.com/article/views/editorial/AJ201506170050

Mainichi Daily News, Jun 15, 2015: The delay is due to unexpected difficulties preventing the escape of airborne radioactive contaminants during decontamination and wreckage clearing work. Decommissioning reactors at the heart of one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters is of course bound to be extremely difficult, and this reality is coming into sharp relief…
http://mainichi.jp/english/english/perspectives/news/20150615p2a00m0na007000c.html

Asahi Shimbun, Jun 13, 2015: … because of the unprecedented scale and nature of the decommissioning project resulting from the triple meltdown… the rush to move on resulted in only more problems… One of the biggest problems has been… stopping leaks of radiation-contaminated water and dealing with radioactive materials that are still gushing…
