IAEA CONCLUDES ITS 2ND VISIT TO JAPAN WITH NO REMEDIATION RECOMMENDATIONS

14 October 2011 (IAEA Press Release 2011/21)

INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY (IAEA -Headquartered in Vienna, Austria)  Its team of international experts completed on 14 Oct 2011, its second preliminary assessment of the strategy and plans being considered by the Japanese authorities to remediate the areas off-site of the Fukushima Dai-No.1 Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) reported to have elevated levels of radiation.

IAEA dispatched the remediation mission to Japan on 07 Oct 2011 at the request of the Japanese Central Government. The mission, comprised of 12 International and IAEA experts from several countries, visited numerous locations in the Fukushima Prefecture, and conducted meetings in both Tokyo and Fukushima, with Japanese officials from several Ministries and institutions.

IAEA REMEDIATION TEAM LEADER Mr. Juan Carlos Lentijo, from Spain’s nuclear regulatory authority said: “The meetings held, and visits made by the team over the last eight days, gave us a first-hand appreciation of the extraordinary efforts and dedication on the part of Japanese people in their effort to remediate the areas affected by elevated levels of radiation in the Fukushima Prefecture…As Japan continues its current remediation efforts, it is our belief that this work will bring relief to the populations who are affected by the consequences of the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant…the team also appreciates the openness with which our discussions were conducted, and the high level of cooperation and access we were granted by Japan…This was, and is, an invaluable opportunity for us(IAEA) to learn from this important decontamination initiative. We would like to continue our support to Japan in this very challenging task. We look forward to sharing our findings with the international community.”

IAEA PRELIMINARY SUMMARY REPORT was delivered to Japanese authorities 14 Oct 2011.  The team prepared a set of conclusions including, though not limited to, the following:

 SUMMARY REPORT 14 OCT 2011

1. Financial and technological resources to bring relief to the people affected by the accident, with priority being given to children. The Team was impressed with the strong commitment to the remediation effort from all institutions and parties involved, including (SPECIALLY) the public.

MY TAKE:

The report IMPLIES That IAEA will provide financial and Technological support to Japan.  THIS IS PROBABLY NOT TRUE, no such aid has been solicited to, or approved by the IAEA General Assembly; therefore is not quantifiable – SO SORRY MR “Pie-in the sky” Mr. Hosono.  After that junket to Vienna! – Well, maybe he saw a concert or two there.  THE SECOND SENTENCE  was a well deserved “Ata’-Boy” (praise) for the people of Japan who MUST endure and persevere…but as bureaucrats say often say: “ Remember, just one “OH-SHIT”, can wipe out 50 “Ata – Boys”

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

2. Japan has also taken practical measures to inform the public, and involve residents and local institutions in the process of defining its remediation strategy

MY TAKE:

OH-REALLY ? – Tell that to the Japanese people if you want to get a laugh.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

3. Japan is advised to avoid classifying removed materials that do not warrant special radiation protection measures as “radioactive waste”.  (such signs should state: DANGER! – KEEP AWAY!)

MY TAKE:

THIS ADVICE SOUNDS ERRONEOUS, AND AIMED AT PLACATING THE NATIVES.  In other words, if you can’t smell It, or taste it, and you can’t see it (glow) don’t sweat it! – LIKE HELL!  Those living there, know better -They have to, in order to survive and maintain health.  Notice no quantifiable advice is given, as to what radioactivity level should warrant such “classification”. Truth be told, even IAEA does not know!

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

4. Japan is advised to consider explaining to the public the importance of focusing on radiation doses that may actually be received by people, rather than on data indicating contamination levels.

MY TAKE:

It is difficult to understand the meaning of such advice.  Frankly,  it sounds like that the government of Japan should consider asking its people to ignore the dangers from the ever-growing “Plume” of radiation, and its tell-tale high readings; If it further means, that Japan needs better PR to assuage the public not to worry about contamination radiation readings, and only about what they come into contact with; question is, how can people tell the difference ? – SUCH ADVICE IS BULLSHIT! 

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

5. Japan is encouraged to continue its remediation efforts In doing so, Japan is encouraged to take into account the advice provided by the Mission. (WHATEVER THAT WAS -WE STILL HAVE NOT READ ABOUT THE IAEA’s RECOMMENDED REMEDIATION  PLAN.

The IAEA stands ready to support Japan as it considers new and appropriate criteria for such activities. The authorities and local residents in Japan fully assisted the IAEA international team in its endeavor to conclude its mission successfully…The final report of the mission will be presented to the Government of Japan in the next month ONCE AGAIN THE WORLD WAITS WITH BAITED BREATH FOR ADVICE AS TO HOW TO REMOVE, AND DISPOSE OF, RADIOACTIVE WASTE OF ALL KINDS, AND ON AIR, SEA, AND LAND.  We think IAEA has no solution, because there is none!  Recall this was billed as: “A Remediation recommendations visit”

SUPPOSEDLY, the government of Japan has been formulating a strategy and plans to implement measures to remediate the contaminated areas.  OH- REALLY ? – Tell that to the Japanese.

THE FIRST IAEA FACT FINDING MISSION took place between 24 May and 2 June 2011, and was called: International Fact Finding Expert Mission Of The Fukushima Dai- No.1 Nuclear Power Plant Accident Following The Great East Japan Earthquake And Tsunami.

THE SECOND SUCH MISSION CONCLUDING ON 14 OCT 2011, was a “follow-up mission”, and an essential component of the IAEA’sNuclear Safety Action Plan”, approved by the IAEA Board of Governors on 03 Sep 2011, and endorsed by all 151 Member States at the recent IAEA General Conference. The “Action Plan” defines a program of work to strengthen the global nuclear safety framework.  (WONDER WHAT THAT IS ?)

MY COMMENT:

This “Plan of action” from the IAEA makes it plain that they represent the Nuclear Industry Financial Interests; not those of the peoples of Japan, or the World, for that matter. “ The Action Plan” contains no verbiage to indicate any empathy, or even compassion, for the people of Japan, and other potential victims to their Fukushima demise.  Notice that no advice is given about contamination waste removal, or its disposition and, or necessary protection measures needed to protect the health and well-being of the people who will do the “cleanup”. What is evident, is that the AEIA is covering up the real facts to mitigate damage to their huge financial interests worldwide.

IN MY VIEW  THE IAEA ARE NOT THE “NUCLEAR WATCH-DOGS” OF THE WORLD – THEY ARE THE “JUNK-YARD DOGS”, CONCERNED ONLY WITH PRESERVING THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY, AND IT’S RICH PROFITS FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FRIENDS, WITHOUT REGARD FOR THE REST OF OUR WORLD.  

THEIR “ACTION PLAN” IS NO REMEDIATION PLAN AT ALL!  Just a rehash of its May 2011 visit.

P.S.  I am happy to tell you that we are being read in over 60 countries.  High on the Hit list are Germany, Netherlands,  Italy,  Japan, Great Britain, China, Taiwan, and many others, even in arab world countries.  Many  more people will now see the truth about the Nuclear Power Industry, and the poisons they generate.
