Japan admits daily radioactive Fukushima release(154 trillion Becquerels) much more than told before

"NSC 23, the Cabinet Office, the amount of radioactive material were released into the atmosphere from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station TEPCO, even at five days this month settled emissions, Terra 154 becquerels per day (One terabyte is 1 trillion) announced that it had reached.

Estimates of radioactive materials released into the atmosphere from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in 5 days, 0.69 per hour iodine-131 tera Becquerel, Becquerel same cesium-137 0.14 terabytes. An international rating scale accidents (INES) at the rate of iodine used, and re-calculate the total amount of cesium and iodine emissions are 6.4 becquerel Terra (Terra 154 becquerels 24 hours) will be It was found that. The committee has so far released about the amount of five daily, totaling just the amount of iodine and cesium, "less than about 1 tera becquerel per hour" was a low estimate....................................."

#Fukushima I Nuke Plant: 154 Terabecquerels Per Day, Every Day of radioactive iodine and cesium still spewing out of the plant, Japan's Nuclear Safety Commission now admits.

(Correction: The previous estimate was 1 terabequerel per hour, not per day. So, per day would be 24 terabequerels.)

"On April 12 during the joint press conference with Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) where they jointly announced the Fukushima I Plant accident was INES Level 7, the Commission assured the world that said that the release of radioactive materials from the plant had decreased to less than 1 terabecquerel per hour, or 24 terabecquerels per day.

It took the Commission 11 days to go from 24 terabecquerels per day to 154 terabecquerels per day. They say they miscalculated. What else have they, all nuclear experts, miscalculated............................."

Hi-res photographic proof reactor core exploded at unit 3

"The residents of Japan have good cause to mistrust the media, TEPCO officials, and members of their government when it comes to assurances about radiation levels, plutonium dispersal, and the related health risks.

Americans also have good cause to mistrust these same sort of assurances issued to American residents. The following is a letter I just sent to the Union of Concerned Scientists detailing evidence that the Fukushima unit 3 Reactor was the source of the massive hydrogen explosion a few weeks ago.... and the further implications of this easily verifiable fact.


snip

Today I had another look at the diagram, and noticed something else quite significant that I had missed before. I realized that the top of the primary containment vessel was flush with the floor level of the 4th floor, and that the top of the reactor itself was in the space between the 3rd and 4th floors, partially surrounded by the spent fuel pool.

Look at those photos again, particularly the 5th shot. At the top of the photo you see the skeletal remnants of the wall of the 3rd and 4th floors. It is easy to see the floor level of the third floor - there are two massive steam pipes running behind and below the building...the lower edge of the lower pipe is almost perfectly aligned with the floor level of the 3rd floor. Follow the floor line of the third floor down down from that back wall along the right side of the building, then across the front side of the building near the bottom of the photo. That shows you the floor level of the 3rd floor very clearly, right? There is nothing but air remaining above that level, except for a bit of roof debris which you can see through. The top of the primary containment vessel, as well as the top of the reactor itself, is simply GONE........................"

Molecular Geneticist: They said there was nothing in France from Chernobyl in fact there was Impression authorities were lying


"<...> How was one supposed to know whether or not to worry about a radioactive cloud? asked Francois Taddei, a molecular geneticist at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM).

For Chernobyl, we were told that there was nothing, which in fact there was. How does one rebuild confidence?

One had the impression justified or not that the authorities were lying, and so everything they said was cast into doubt, said Klein....."

http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/24_08.html (video)TEPCO map shows contaminated areas


Debris found on a nearby mountain has radioactivity of 300 millisieverts/hour


"Tokyo Electric Power Company has disclosed a map of radiation levels at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

The utility plans to urgently remove radioactive rubble, and the map will help to protect workers from unnecessary exposure to radiation.

TEPCO began making the map in late March, and has posted copies in the plant's buildings.

The map shows radiation levels that controllers measured around the first 4 reactors before the start of the working day.

Radiation levels around the Number 3 reactor building, which was damaged by a powerful hydrogen explosion, are higher than in other locations, and 300 millisieverts per hour of radiation was detected in debris on a nearby mountainside............................."

Flooding No. 1 reactor with water could cause cracks: Experts Japanese govt concerned about structural strength + (VIDEO)

"The Japanese governments nuclear safety agency said Saturday it has commissioned an investigation into the ability of the No. 1 reactor at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi to withstand further earthquakes in the wake of the March 11 disasters, amid concern that pouring water crucial to cool fuel rods into the reactor could conceivably weaken its structure. <...>

Japanese state broadcaster NHK reported early Saturday that the Japanese government has expressed concern about the structural strength of the Fukushima Daiichi plants No. 1 reactor, saying water injections to cool fuel rods since the 9.0 earthquake and tsunami March 11 may be making the vessel less earthquake-resistant. <...>

But some experts have pointed out that since reactors werent designed to be filled up with water, the process could put strain on structures and possibly cause cracks, especially if the area were hit by another major tremor as aftershocks continue to rumble around Japan. <...>......."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is getting so hard to find news on Fukushima, even though it is not getting any better (and indeed worsen in many cases).

Previous 'official' releases that were low-balling or understating impacts and levels are now being methodically 'walked-back', and blamed on 'faulty equipment' or simply error. Sounds like the typical dis info campaign I have seen employed all too often before, in a myriad number of situs.

Kyodo news just blocked most of their content, unless you pay them.

1. Quoting Blogspot as legitimate scientific research...
...clearly, they're the best.

4. Delete those links, then.
Using weak links to blogs and the Wall Street Journal greatly decreases the validity of an argument.

7. no, sorry, I will not, especially as your logic is clearly specious
Edited on Sun Apr-24-11 05:43 PM by stockholmer
Yomiuri Shimbun is one of the largest newspapers in Japan, and the Wall Street Journal is global in significance.
