FUKUSHIMA GOES FROM BAD TO WORSE- RADIOACTIVE STEAM COMING OUT OF GROUND “CRACKS”

21 Aug 2011

AT ISSUE – WHY IS THERE A NEWS BLACKOUT ABOUT FUKUSHIMA IN THE WEST? Even when such news are in the best interest of the public.  Since Japan’s Fukushima Dai No.1 tragic events of 12 Mar 2011, the three (3) melted-thru Nukes, and spent-fuel pools, have released 30 times the radiation contamination amount of the Hiroshima bomb.  Worse yet, the molten cores appear to be sinking through the last concrete containment measures, and into the soil beneath.  Russia Today (RT) held a lengthy interview on 18 Aug 2011, as Presenter Tom Hartman questioned  Paul Gunter of  “Beyond Nuclear”.

WHO IS PAUL GUNTER?  AN ANTI- NUKE GURU SINCE 1976;  THAT’S WHO.  Paul was a 2008 recipient of the Jane Bagley Lehman Award from the Tides Foundation for his work on nuclear power and climate change. He has appeared on NBC Nightly World News, The Lehrer News Hour, BBC World News and Amy Goodman’s “Democracy Now!” He co-founded the “Clamshell Alliance” in 1976 to oppose Seabrook (NH) nuclear power plant construction through non-violent direct action that launched the U.S. antinuclear movement before joining  Beyond Nuclear advocates for an energy future that is sustainable, and aims to educate and activate the public about the connections between Nukes and Big money. Gunter also served 16 years as Director of the “Reactor Watchdog Project for Nuclear Information and Resource Service” He was born in Mississippi, and reared in Detroit, MI.

JAPANESE DR. TASUHIKO KODAMA 58, Is head of  the “University of Tokyo Radioisotope Center Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology” in Meguro-ku.  Dr. Kodama is highly qualified to compile/analyze radiation data, and has been working to develop cancer treatment methods using isotopes;  Accordingly he is highly knowledgeable about internal radiation exposure problems.  Kodama said on 20 Aug 2011: “The total amount of leakage (radiation uncontrollably released into air, ground, and water)  is about 29.6 times the amount of contamination caused by the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Assuming the source material to be uranium, we estimate the total amount of leakage to be about 30 times what was caused by the Hiroshima bomb.” Dr. Kodama added: “What’s more, the radiation (that we are talking about) will decrease at a much slower rate than after the A-bomb. When the amount of radiation is small, it’s enough to consider on-the-spot radiation. But when the total volume is huge, we have to think about how the particles will disperse…this happens in a non-linear manner, which is very difficult to calculate scientifically, because concentration is apt to occur in unpredictable locations. (WHO KNOWS WHERE THE WIND OR SEA WILL TAKE IT? )This will keep happening, such as when feed-hay for cattle was contaminated by cesium, and when contamination was found in tea and leaf mulch”. Dr. Kodama testified to the Japanese Parliament’s “Committee for Health, Labor and Welfare” last 27 July 2011. HIS TESTIMONY MADE HEADLINES IN JAPAN, BUT NOT ANYWHERE ELSE. – VIVA LA WESTERN PRESS! And no thanks to the Mighty Murdoch Media Empire.

WHY THE NEWS BLACKOUT? “So what exactly is going on there? asked Hartmann on Russia Today, and why the media black-out on this increasingly dangerous nuclear disaster?” It has been 160 days since the disastrous events at Fukushima Dai No.1 Nuke plant, but information is still not forthcoming.  Paul Gunter joined Hartmann to shed light on what the news media is blacking out. Gunter added that fuel fragments found over 1-1/2 miles away from the facility did not come from explosions of the “spent fuel pools”.  According to the U. S.A. Nuclear Regulatory Commission(NRC)  the fuel fragments were ejected from the nuclear core(s) from the beginning.”  Gunter told Hartmann, “the first thing to be controlled in nuclear incidents is information. There’s an incredible lag-time (months) before we really understand the situation,”  Hartmann reiterated that the catastrophe is releasing 20 to 29 times more contamination than the Hiroshima bomb but he did not see Dr. Kodama’s new data “in a single newspaper in the United States.” Question is: Why not?  Hartman thinks that a GLOBAL NUCLEAR INDUSTRY IS IN CONTROL OF THE NEWS MEDIA “We’re really dependent on “Indy-media” these days,” he said. “Shows like yours, like what’s on Blogs, and, Youtube; this is where news on Fukushima breaks first.”- PLEASE SEE THE LAST PARA

ALSO AT ISSUE IS THE LATEST OMINOUS FUKUSHIMA DEVELOPMENT – STEAMY GROUND CRACKS

BY-CRACKY! THINGS ARE REALLY GETTING WORSE. As the molten cores sink into the ground, increasing the nuclear plant’s lethality, an unidentified Fukushima Dai No.1 employee said: “A LOT OF CRACKS CAME UP IN THE GROUND. Massive steam is coming up from there. It’s too smoggy(stifling) here. Can’t see a thing. It seems like a nuclear reaction is happening underground; Now we are evacuating. Watch out for the direction of the wind”.  Gunter commented: “We know there have been three(3) melt-thru events…The reactor’s melted core has burned through the concrete floor of the buildings, into the Earth, and is reaching the ground water and creating steam…If this was in Nevada, it would be no big deal. It would end up in the dirt some place buried forever; However, most Nukes (including those in the U.S.A.), are built right next to water for cooling, so the water table is right there…if the melted cores are hot enough, they can separate out the elemental forms of water – hydrogen and oxygen, and that creates an underground explosive environment…The radioactivity readings we are seeing right now, suggest that the radiation level is off-scale(too high) for the instrumentation used by the workers…Five-hundred REM is considered lethal dose; This is 1000 REM coming out of these cracks. So, we’re seeing doses that could cause fatalities within days… the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) permissible radiation amount  for the public is 100 miliRem (mR) per year; This is one million  mR; so these are lethal doses that are (unexpectedly) coming out of the ground…(Meanwhile TEPCO)has been looking to contain this accident by building tents over the Nuke units which is kind of ludicrous(OR UNREALISTIC) of itself, and shows their level of desperation.”

Dr. Kodama told Mainichi Daily on 20 Aug 2011(Saturday), “What’s more, the radiation will decrease(decay) at a much slower rate than after the A-bomb. When the amount of radiation is small, it’s enough to consider “on-the-spot radiation.” but when the total volume is huge, we have to think about how the particles will disperse….this happens in a non-linear manner, which is very difficult to calculate scientifically, because concentration is apt to occur in unpredictable locations. This will keep happening, such as when feed-hay for cattle was contaminated by cesium, and when contamination was found in tea and leaf mulch.” TRANSLATION: ONCE THE RADIOACTIVITY SPEWS OUT, NO ONE CAN PREDICT WHERE IT WILL GO; THAT, IS THE HELL OF IT! AS FOR “CLEAN-UP EFFORTS”, THEY ARE OF QUESTIONABLE VALUE. – PERMIT ME AN ANALOGY:  If one goes to the tallest building in town, and shakes a goose down feather pillow on a windy day, what are the chances of recovering even a small amount of the feathers?  PROBLEM IS THESE RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES WILL BE HARMFUL FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.

NEW STRONG QUAKE IN FUKUSHIMA REGION. As if man-made problems were not enough, mother nature unleashed another quake on the Fukushima region of Japan on 19 Aug 2011;  with a Richter 6.8 magnitude(very strong). TEPCO says: “the quake caused no abnormalities” at the crippled Fukushima Dai No 1 Nuke complex.  WE HOPE SO, BUT WITH THE NEWS BLACKOUT, WE REALLY DON’T KNOW –  DO WE?

To see the entire interview click on: www.beyondnuclear.org/home/2011/8/18/could-the-fukushima-disaster-be-getting-worse-hartmann.html  Please understand that this my attempt to summarize, and abbreviate a lengthy interview meant for multi-media.

BLOGERS ARISE! We reiterate that Blogs such a these, and such, are the “Thin Red-Line” against disinformation, misinformation, and outright lies promulgated by the Powers of B (as in Billions).  They are a very powerful bunch, and seek to perpetuate their power and financial interest at all costs.  Even so, The Uranium Nuclear Cartel has lost its primacy and public support.  It will go down with Japan; unfortunately for Japan, soon.

    Fantastic post, very informative. I wonder why the opposite specialists of this sector do not notice this. You should proceed your writing. I am sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!

    REPLY: THANKS FOR YOUR KIND COMMENT. I HAVE REASON TO BELIEVE IT IS BECAUSE THE “FREE PRESS” IS NOT RELLY FREE. IT IS CONTROLLED BY THE MURDOCH MEDIA MACHINE/EMPIRE TO POPAGANDIZE FOR THE POWERS OF “B”, AND TO QUASH THE REAL NUCLEAR ENERGY STORY FROM BLOGGERS LIKE LIKE ME – TIME WILL TELL…

    I BELIEVE THE FUKUSHIMA DAI NO.1 TRAGEDY HAS TAKEN THE WIND OUT OF THEIR SAILS, AND THEY ARE NOW IN FINANCIAL DOLDROMS, AND SINKING BY THE BOW. I AM TRYING LIKE HELL TO MAKE THE WORLD AWARE OF THEIR “MODUS OPERANDI” THAT CORRUPTS MANY GREEDY PEOPLE, AND EVEN ENTIRE GOVERNMENTS – BIG MONEY IS THAT WAY!!.

    OUR READERSHIP IS EXPLODING WORLDWIDE; THIS MONTH (SEP 2011), WE RECEIVED AN INORDINATE NUMBER OF “SPECIAL VIEWERS” FROM SWITZERLAND , AND RECALL THEY JUST DECIDED TO ABANDON NUCLEAR AMBITIONS.

    WE ABANDONED NUCLEAR AMBITIONS IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS USA ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO AFTER I INTERVENED ( PLEASE READ MY “WELCOME TO ENERGYMATERS.COM” POST). NUCLEAR PROPONENTS ARE LIKE THE “WOLFMAN” OR “DRACULA” OF THE 50’S MOVIES- — THEY CAN NOT STAND THE LIGHT OF PUBLIC SCRUTINY.
