Quote
The risks related to prolonged contamination among vulnerable groups of the population can no longer be considered "negligible" and it is now necessary to avoid "risky behaviour," CRIIRAD claimed. Data for the west coast of the United States, which received the Fukushima radioactive fallout 6-10 days before France, reveals that levels of radioactive iodine-131 concentration are 8-10 times higher there, the institute says.

http://hken.ibtimes.com/articles/133065/20110412/japan-fukushima-daiichi-to-raise-nuke-accident-severity-level-to-the-1986-chernobyl-highest-7.htm
 By IBTimes Staff Reporter  | April 12, 2011 11:46 AM HKT

Japan nuclear agency has raised severity level of the crisis at a stricken nuclear plant Tuesday to rank it on par with the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

According to Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, the amount of radiation emission released at the Fukushima plant was equivalent to 10 percent of Chernobyl, the Xinhua reported.

Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency lifted the rating level to 7, from 5, an agency official was quoted as saying.

The level 7 signifies a "major accident" with "wider consequences" than the previous level, according to the standards scale.

"We have upgraded the severity level to 7 as the impact of radiation leaks has been widespread from the air, vegetables, tap water and the ocean," said Minoru Oogoda of Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency told Associated Press.

The Japanese authorities have been fighting to keep the troubled Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant safe from radiation leaks since the March 11 earthquake.

Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission on Monday said the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant had been releasing radioactive materials up to 10,000 terabecquerels per hour at some point after the March 11 massive quake and tsunami hit northeastern Japan.

The level 7 of nuke accident severity on the International Nuclear Event Scale has only been applied to the 1986 Chernobyl catastrophe.

The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine). An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western Russia and Europe. It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and it is the only one classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale. The battle to contain the contamination and avert a greater catastrophe ultimately involved over 500,000 workers and cost an estimated 18 billion rubles, crippling the Soviet economy.

Doesn't mention the strontium found on the westcoast recently.

Slight amounts of strontium found near crippled Japan nuclear

By Yoko Kubota | Reuters – Tue, 12 Apr, 2011

TOKYO (Reuters) - Slight amounts of strontium, a heavy radioactive metal that could lead to leukemia, have been detected in soil and plants near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, Japan's science and technology ministry said on Tuesday.

Japan has already detected radioactive elements including iodine, cesium and plutonium, in areas near the plant operated by Tokyo Electric Power after reactors there were crippled due to a loss of power that disabled cooling functions.

That expert from Europe says the rods blew out!
 the pellets inside could be scattered all over.

have you seen Gundersen's video demonstrating with an atual piece of a rod?
 He tells all about the pellets inside them.

the tubes, once they get hot enough for long enough
 they lose their integrity become brittle
and they will even ignite.
that is right.
Gundersen said it is the same stuff used in flash bulbs

How in the heck did anyone get talked into thinking this was a safe thing to make?

Fukushima: a Real SNAFU

How Many Nuclear Engineers Does It Take to Screw in a Light Bulb?

By RUSSELL D. HOFFMAN

Fukushima is a real SNAFU. Situation Normal: All Fouled Up. (The polite definition of the term.)

Radioactive poisons will continue to spew from Fukushima for months, years... poisons will remain in our environment... "forever."

I'm burned out. We're all burned out. We're all burned from the inside out and the outside in by this tragedy. Fukushima WAS and IS "the big one."

It will kill for the rest of our lives. Kill fish. Kill birds. Kill people.

Not just in Japan, but all over. The deaths will not be televised. They will not be You-Tubed. They are too vile to watch, too painful, too personal, too humbling, too sickening. But you MUST know they will happen. They are happening. They will always keep happening because radiation causes cancer. It has no lower threshold, and billions upon billions of cancer-causing doses were distributed to the world. Gazzillions of billions. Uncountable trillions. Needles pegged. Detectors and dosimeters lost in the hydrogen explosions. And probably, nothing's been calibrated in a month, they're too busy....

For $1,000 a day, maybe more, maybe less, people are willing to go into Fukushima and get a dose. Thank goodness. When they run out of Japanese nuclear workers, they will surely import them, probably from India, where wages are low and nuclear power is (or at least, was, up until Fukushima) highly regarded by the government and largely unopposed by the people of India, who are up to their necks in other problems, like a polluted Ganges, monsoon flooding or lack thereof, poverty, internal terrorism, depleted natural resources, and just about every other problem you can imagine. They do, however, still have a thriving film industry.

How many workers will Fukushima Daiichi require by the time it's all entombed -- probably not the best solution, and certainly not doable yet -- or whatever they do with it?

Chernobyl required about three quarters of a million Russian workers, most of them young military conscripts and firemen. Things are different in Japan. Allowable doses were much higher for the Chernobyl workers and generally, doses only estimated, not actually measured.

On the other hand, in Japan Tyvek suits are the norm, with breathing apparatus that might even be working somewhat! Oh, how I wish I had invested in "Tyvek" in February (that, and radiation detector companies)! These workers can stay longer. But the radiation levels at the plant are very dangerous and some of them might exceed what the workers at Chernobyl had to endure. AND yes, dosimeters don't always tell the whole story even if everyone has one, and nor do any but the most sophisticated of radiation detection equipment.

In other words, almost everything, once again, is being estimated. And Tyvek leaks, either by being torn, punctured, or improperly used. And of course, only some radiation is blocked by the Tyvek, not all (chiefly among what is blocked are alpha particles, among what is not, gamma rays).

it is amazing how it went from a 5 to 7 by-passing 6.
I also hear the radiation levels of safety have been raised by 1000% at the US
monitoring stations to downplay what we are getting/exposed to.

Climacus, I'm very glad to see you posted the truth about our food

Mr.Gundersen's video may 6th said, EPA turned off the monitoring equipment here

 Japan accused of nuclear cover-up

The operator of Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant has began to dump radioactive water into the Pacific.

The government was accused of covering up the extent of radiation levels.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) began to pump 11,500 tons of radioactive water into the ocean to free up storage space for more contaminated water. A TEPCO spokesman said the water was only weakly radioactive, the Jiji press agency said.

The government's chief spokesman said the release could not be avoided. "We have no choice but to release water tainted with radioactive materials into the ocean as a safety measure," Yukio Edano told a news conference.

The decision to release contaminated water into the environment comes amid rising concern over the global spread of radiation from the plant. Low levels of radioactive material have been detected as far away as the US and Britain.

In a bid to stop further radioactive discharges spreading uncontrolled into the ocean, a spokesman for Japan's nuclear watchdog said TEPCO was considered installing special barriers near the plant, Kyodo News reported.

The barriers consist of curtains attached with weights, which TEPCO hoped would contain the contaminated water, the report said.

Japan also requested help from Russia to deal with the radioactive water, the RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Japan asked for the use of a floating disposal facility designed to deal with waste from decommissioned nuclear-powered submarines. The facility, which cost $35 million, was financed by Japan.

The broadcaster NHK reported Monday that the Japanese government withheld the release of data showing that radiation exceeded safe levels more than 18 miles from the plant, beyond the 12-mile evacuation zone.

The facility was rocked by a devastating 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami March 11, which damaged reactors causing radiation to seep out despite ongoing efforts to contain the damage.

Computer projections taken March 16 showed that people from as far away as 18 miles from the nuclear plant would be exposed to more than 100 millisieverts of radiation if they were outdoors for 24 hours between March 12 and 24.

It also indicated that the radiation could spread northwest and southwest of the facility. The normal level of background radiation people are exposed to in their daily lives without harm is about one to 1.5 millisieverts a year.

The Japanese government has defended its failure to release the data until March 23, saying the amount of radioactive leakage and the areas affected were not clear at the time.


LIES WON'T MAKE IT DISAPPEAR


I think that's why USA's EPA turned off the air monitors and is refusing to monitor our water and food.

Independent French radiation commission warns Europe that health risk from Fukushima fallout is “no longer negligible” — Says US west coast has 8-10 times more contamination
April 11th, 2011 at 06:36 AM

Radiation risks from Fukushima ‘no longer negligible’, EurActive, April 11, 2011:


    The risks associated with iodine-131 contamination in Europe are no longer “negligible,” according to CRIIRAD [Commission de Recherche et d'Information Indépendantes sur la Radioactivité], an independent French research body on radioactivity. …

    The document, published on 7 April, advises against consuming rainwater and says vulnerable groups such as children and pregnant or breastfeeding women should avoid consuming vegetables with large leaves, fresh milk and creamy cheese.

    The risks related to prolonged contamination among vulnerable groups of the population can no longer be considered “negligible” and it is now necessary to avoid “risky behaviour,” CRIIRAD claimed. …

    [This] is applicable to other European countries, as the level of air contamination is currently the same in Belgium, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, for instance.

    Data for the west coast of the United States, which received the Fukushima radioactive fallout 6-10 days before France, reveals that levels of radioactive iodine-131 concentration are 8-10 times higher there, the institute says.

What level of radiation can be a risk?

    The Euratom [European Atomic Energy Community] Directive of 13 May 1996 establishes general principles and safety standards on radiation protection in Europe. …

    Beyond [ten micro sieverts per year], possible measures should be considered to reduce exposure, it says. …

    CRIIRAD notes that the amount of iodine-131 capable of delivering a dose of 10 [microsieverts] varies greatly depending on the age of consumers. Children up to two years old are the most vulnerable and ingestion of 50 becquerel (Bq) is enough to deliver to the body a dose of 10 [microsieverts], according to the institute.

    If the foods (leafy vegetables, milk etc.) contain between one and 10 Bq per kg or more, it is possible that the reference level of 10 [microsieverts] may be exceeded within two to three weeks, the institute added. …

This is BAD:

Quote
The most terrifying fact is that the Japanese power plants are using 'dirty' fuel, which most countries have rejected and banned. Needless to say that the Americans built them. Since the Earth is moving Counterclockwise most of the fall-out will drop on U.S., unless very strong winds take it somewhere else. In Sweden we have so far not measured increased levels of radiation. My only concern is what happened to the plutonium stored in the water tanks next to the reactor.

yes unfortunately you are quite right.

that article was quoted in the huffington post
she is leaving out, that the MOX fuel they are using came from FRANCE.
I found an article this morning, the french estimate as to how much Junk is there is correct, they know .. that's where it came from.

let's go after General Electric, they made a Bad design

 the latest news is, the plant was leaking BEFORE the tsunami hit!

in other words, the quake WAS enough and the Europeans ARE getting the heavy toxins too .
It's even been measured on San Miguel in the Azores .
If they think the readings are high now ..
maybe that is why we are hearing No Knew figures since April?

Most of the measuring around the globe was done before the latest big release in May.

Molten radioactive fuel caused new water leakage at Fukushima — RT

Japan’s Fukushima Reactor May Have Leaked Radiation Before Tsunami Struck
By Yuji Okada, Tsuyoshi Inajima and Shunichi Ozasa - May 19, 2011 3:21 AM PT

http://enenews.com/fukushima-release-radiation-chernobyl-tepco

A radiation alarm went off at Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima nuclear power plant before the tsunami hit on March 11, suggesting that contrary to earlier assumptions the reactors were damaged by the earthquake that spawned the wall of water.

A monitoring post on the perimeter of the plant about 1.5 kilometers (1 mile) from the No. 1 reactor went off at 3:29 p.m., minutes before the station was overwhelmed by the tsunami that knocked out backup power that kept reactor cooling systems running, according to documents supplied by the company. The monitor was set to go off at high levels of radiation, an official said.

“We are still investigating whether the monitoring post was working properly,” said Teruaki Kobayashi, the company’s head of nuclear facility management. “There is a possibility that radiation leaked before the tsunami arrived.” Kobayashi said he didn’t have the exact radiation reading that would trigger the sensor.

Officials at the company, known as Tepco, had earlier said the plant stood up to the magnitude-9 quake and was crippled by the tsunami that followed, causing the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl in 1986. The early radiation alarm has implications for other reactors in Japan, one of the most earthquake prone countries in the world, because safety upgrades ordered by the government since March 11 have focused on the threat from tsunamis.
Earthquake Risk

Many scientists have considered the possibility of damage to Fukushima reactors from the quake, said Tetsuo Ito, head of the Atomic Energy Research Institute at Kinki University in western Japan. “Utilities should reinforce safety measures at nuclear power plants, particularly ones housing old reactors like the Fukushima station."

The company’s shares fell 8 percent today to 358 yen. They’ve fallen 83 percent since the disaster. The cost of protecting the Tepco’s debt from default rose to a record today, according to data provider CMA.

Tepco this week released thousands of pages of documents that highlight the chaos in the early hours of the disaster as workers frantically tried to prevent meltdowns in three of six reactors at Fukushima. They included pictures of whiteboards with scribbled notes of times and events.

Among the documents, the pressure and water level inside of No. 1 reactor inner vessel fluctuated after the earthquake hit at 2:46 p.m. Most of the readings for the No. 1 reactor go blank a little after 3:30 p.m. when the waves swamped the plant.
Venting Attempts

The company is still verifying the accuracy of the data, Takeo Iwamoto, a spokesman for the utility, said. Tepco submitted the documents to the Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency on May 16 after the watchdog requested them, Iwamoto said. The files were released to the media to increase transparency, he said.

The documents show that a little after 9 a.m. on March 12, workers at the No. 1 reactor started trying to vent steam and gas as pressure in the reactor exceeded design specifications. The vent was partly opened manually at about 9:15 a.m. and attempts to get it fully opened were abandoned about 15 minutes later due to high radiation levels.

Workers in the control room then opened it by remote control, only for it to keep closing, according to the documents. A build up of hydrogen gas in the reactor building then caused an explosion that blew out part of the structure at 3:36 p.m. the same day.

Attempts to vent gas at the No. 2 and No. 3 reactors probably also failed and the pressure inside exceeded design levels for their containment vessels, the records show. Gauges in these buildings, which later were damaged by hydrogen explosions, also failed.
Instrument Blindness

Reading radiation and pressure levels was the only way to establish whether venting succeeded, Kobayashi said.

On May 15, or more than two months after the disaster at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant, Tepco said conditions were worse than expected in reactor No. 1 when it found all uranium fuel rods had melted.

Two workers entered the Fukushima the No. 3 reactor building to check radiation levels yesterday, the first time they’ve been in since March 14, spokesman Takeo Iwamoto said by telephone.

Yesterday it sent four workers into reactor No. 2 for the first time since March 14 to measure radiation levels and assess whether work can be done to fix gauges that will show the condition of the core.

Beside radiation leaks into the atmosphere forcing about 50,000 families near the plant to evacuate, more than 10 million liters (2.6 million gallons) of radiation-contaminated water have leaked or been released into the sea.

Millions of liters of radiated water have also filled basements and trenches at the station from leaking reactor vessels and piping.

Japan’s government in April raised the severity rating of the Fukushima crisis to the highest on an international scale, the same level as the Chernobyl disaster. The station, which has experienced hundreds of aftershocks since March 11, may release more radiation than Chernobyl before the crisis is contained, Tepco officials have said.
