    The high levels of radiation may seem alarming, but there’s good news: it’s contained, and there are no reports of new leaks from the plant. That means that the radiation shouldn’t affect nearby townships. Higher levels of radiation could also mean the robot is getting closer to the precise source of radioactivity to properly remove the melted fuel.


Well it's contained, and there are no new leaks...higher levels of radiation...enough radiation to fry electronics...means maybe we'll find the reactor core  :emthup: :icon_sunny:

Just another story that makes up our carnival world of distortions.  Whales are beaching in NZ and the coast of Cali is dead.  Has anyone measured the water on the west coast in search of radioactive contamination?  Seems like it wouldn't be too difficult to determine if there is fukupuke in the water there. 

We're all going to die from cancer anyways.  Might as well kill everything else while were at it.

The truth is that the oceans are dying so fast it's hard to figure out what's killing them. In the long term, I put climate ahead of nukes, but I'd hardly say that's reassuring.  Six years? Journalists don't live long enough...try 6000 years and still spewing. Think that will make headlines? It'll just be another  dead zone, maybe a tribal taboo against going anywhere near there.

Radiation level in Fukushima No. 2 reactor measured higher

THE ASAHI SHIMBUN

A camera attached to the robot deployed inside Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant's No. 2 reactor shows how it clears its path covered with debris and deposits using a pressure washer. (Captured from video provided by Tokyo Electric Power Co.)

The road to decommissioning Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant’s No. 2 reactor could be rockier than expected, as radiation levels on Feb. 9 were even deadlier than those recorded in late January.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. announced that day that radiation levels inside the reactor were estimated at up to 650 sieverts per hour, much higher than the record 530 sieverts per hour marked by the previous survey.

A camera made its way inside the reactor's containment vessel for the first time on Jan. 30 and spotted fuel rods that had melted into black lumps in the nuclear accident in the aftermath of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami disaster.

The plant operator made the latest estimate from the amount of camera noise experienced by the robot that ventured into the lion’s den that morning.

Equipped with a pressure washer, the machine was deployed to pave the way for the Sasori (scorpion) robot that is set to survey the reactor’s interior in greater detail.

The robot’s task was to hose down melted fuel and other substances as it traveled along a rail measuring 7 meters long and 0.6 meter wide connecting the outer wall of the containment vessel with the reactor’s core. It started operating from a point located 2 meters from the exit of the tunnel bored into the side of the vessel.

But about two hours into its journey, in which it had progressed about a meter, the camera footage started getting dark, TEPCO said. The amount of radiation emitted by the melted fuel may have taken a toll on the camera’s well-being.

As the robot could be left stranded inside the vessel if the camera broke down completely, the utility called off the operation seven hours earlier than scheduled and retrieved the device.

TEPCO analyzed the footage and concluded that the doses amounted to about 650 sieverts per hour, which is deadly enough to kill a human in less than a minute.

As the robot’s camera was designed to withstand a cumulative dosage of 1,000 sieverts per hour, the utility commented that “it’s consistent with how the camera started to break down after two hours.”

The plant operator plans to deploy the Sasori surveyor robot before the end of February.

“We will be assessing the amount of deposits and debris to decide how far Sasori can advance,” a TEPCO official said.

They want to claim the containment vessels aren't breached, but guess what, there is no way to know. I wouldn't bet on them being intact.

They don't fucking know where the reactor cores are for cryin' out loud!!! :icon_scratch:

Containment vessels not breached!!!  The reactors melted through the containment vessels and are somewhere in the ground at this point.  Hell they may as well be at the center of the Earth (which theoretically would "contain" them).

Japan Pictures Likely Show Melted Fukushima Fuel for First Time
By Stephen Stapczynski
July 21, 2017, 4:34 PM AKDT

    Submarine-like robot has been surveying reactor since July 19
    Tepco aims to begin removing Fukushima’s melted fuel by 2021


New images show what is likely to be melted nuclear fuel hanging from inside one of Japan’s wrecked Fukushima reactors, a potential milestone in the cleanup of one of the worst atomic disasters in history.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings Inc., Japan’s biggest utility, released images on Friday showing a hardened black, grey and orange substance that dripped from the bottom of the No. 3 reactor pressure vessel at Fukushima, which is likely to contain melted fuel, according to Takahiro Kimoto, an official at the company. The company sent a Toshiba-designed robot, which can swim and resembles a submarine, to explore the inside of the reactor for the first time on July 19.

“Never before have we taken such clear pictures of what could be melted fuel,” Kimoto said at a press briefing that began at 9 p.m. Friday in Tokyo, noting that it would take time to analyze and confirm whether it is actually fuel. “We believe that the fuel melted and mixed with the metal directly underneath it. And it is highly likely that we have filmed that on Friday.”

If confirmed, the substance -- which has the appearance of icicles -- would be the first discovery of the fuel that melted during the triple reactor accident at Fukushima six years ago. For Tokyo Electric, which bears most of the clean-up costs, the discovery would help the utility design a way to remove the highly-radioactive material.

The robot, which is about 30 centimeters (12 inches) long, will search for melted fuel at the bottom of the reactor on Saturday. It is possible that the company will take more pictures of what could be melted fuel spread across the floor and lower levels, according to Tokyo Electric’s Kimoto. Fuel from a nuclear meltdown is known as corium, which is a mixture of the atomic fuel rods and other structural materials.

“It is important to know the exact locations and the physical, chemical, radiological forms of the corium to develop the necessary engineering defueling plans for the safe removal of the radioactive materials,” said Lake Barrett, a former official at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission who was involved with the cleanup at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in the U.S. “The recent investigation results are significant early signs of progress on the long road ahead.”

Because of the high radioactivity levels inside the reactor, only specially designed robots can probe the unit. And the unprecedented nature of the Fukushima disaster means that Tepco, as the utility is known, is pinning its efforts on technology not yet invented to get the melted fuel out of the reactors.
Removal Plans

The company aims to decide on the procedure to remove the melted fuel from each unit as soon as this summer. And it will confirm the procedure for the first reactor during the fiscal year ending March 2019, with fuel removal slated to begin in 2021.

Decommissioning the reactors will cost 8 trillion yen ($72 billion), according to an estimate in December from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. Removing the fuel is one of the most important steps in a cleanup that may take as long as 40 years.

Similar to the latest findings on Friday, Tepco took photographs in January of what appeared to be black residue covering a grate under the Fukushima Dai-Ichi No. 2 reactor, which was speculated to have been melted fuel. However, a follow-up survey by another Toshiba-designed robot in February failed to confirm the location of any melted fuel in the reactor after it got stuck in debris.

A robot designed by Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy Ltd. also failed to find any melted fuel during its probe of the No. 1 reactor in March.

The significance of Friday’s finding “might be evidence that the robots used by Tepco can now deal with the higher radiation levels, at least for periods of time that allow them to search parts of the reactor that are more likely to contain fuel debris,” M.V. Ramana, professor at the Liu Institute for Global Issues at the University of British Columbia, said by email.

“If some of these fragments can be brought out of the reactor and studied, it would allow nuclear engineers and scientists to better model what happened during the accident.”

New Source of Radioactivity from Fukushima Disaster Found
Tue, 10/03/2017 - 9:39am 4 Comments
by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute

Scientists have found a previously unsuspected place where radioactive material from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant disaster has accumulated--in sands and brackish groundwater beneath beaches up to 60 miles away. The sands took up and retained radioactive cesium originating from the disaster in 2011 and have been slowly releasing it back to the ocean.

"No one is either exposed to, or drinks, these waters, and thus public health is not of primary concern here," the scientists said in a study published October 2 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. But "this new and unanticipated pathway for the storage and release of radionuclides to the ocean should be taken into account in the management of coastal areas where nuclear power plants are situated."

The research team--Virginie Sanial, Ken Buesseler, and Matthew Charette of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Seiya Nagao of Kanazawa University--hypothesize that high levels of radioactive cesium-137 released in 2011 were transported along the coast by ocean currents. Days and weeks after the accident, waves and tides brought the cesium in these highly contaminated waters onto the coast, where cesium became "stuck" to the surfaces of sand grains. Cesium-enriched sand resided on the beaches and in the brackish, slightly salty mixture of fresh water and salt water beneath the beaches.

But in salt water, cesium no longer "sticks" to the sand. So when more recent waves and tides brought in salty seawater from the ocean, the brackish water underneath the beaches became salty enough to release the cesium from the sand, and it was carried back into the ocean.

"No one expected that the highest levels of cesium in ocean water today would be found not in the harbor of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, but in the groundwater many miles away below the beach sands," said Sanial.

The scientists estimated that the amount of contaminated water flowing into the ocean from this brackish groundwater source below the sandy beaches is as large as the input from two other known sources: ongoing releases and runoff from the nuclear power plant site itself, and outflow from rivers that continue to carry cesium from the fallout on land in 2011 to the ocean on river-borne particles. All three of these ongoing sources are thousands of times smaller today compared with the days immediately after the disaster in 2011.

The team sampled eight beaches within 60 miles of the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant between 2013 and 2016. They plunged 3- to 7-foot-long tubes into the sand, pumped up underlying groundwater, and analyzed its cesium-137 content. The cesium levels in the groundwater were up to 10 times higher than the levels found in seawater within the harbor of the nuclear power plant itself. In addition, the total amount of cesium retained more than 3 feet deep in the sands is higher than what is found in sediments on the seafloor offshore of the beaches.

Cesium has a long half-life and persists in the environment. In their analyses of the beaches, the scientists detected not only cesium-137, which may have come from the Dai-ichi plant or from nuclear weapons tested in the 1950s and1960s, but also cesium-134, a radioactive form of cesium that can only come only from the 2011 Fukushima accident.

The researchers also conducted experiments on Japanese beach samples in the lab to demonstrate that cesium did indeed "stick" to sand grains and then lost their "stickiness" when they were flushed with salt water.

"It is as if the sands acted as a 'sponge' that was contaminated in 2011 and is only slowly being depleted," said Buesseler.

"Only time will slowly remove the cesium from the sands as it naturally decays away and is washed out by seawater," said Sanial.

"There are 440 operational nuclear reactors in the world, with approximately one-half situated along the coastline," the study's authors wrote. So this previously unknown, ongoing, and persistent source of contamination to coastal oceans "needs to be considered in nuclear power plant monitoring and scenarios involving future accidents."

Fukushima Darkness: Radiation of Triple Meltdowns Felt Worldwide

Fukushima Darkness: Radiation of Triple Meltdowns Felt Worldwide
By Robert Hunziker
Global Research, January 12, 2018
Defend Democracy Press 22 November 2017
Region: Asia
Theme: Environment, Media Disinformation, Oil and Energy

The radiation effects of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant triple meltdowns are felt worldwide, whether lodged in sea life or in humans, it cumulates over time. The impact is now slowly grinding away only to show its true colors at some unpredictable date in the future. That’s how radiation works, slow but assuredly destructive, which serves to identify its risks, meaning, one nuke meltdown has the impact, over decades, of 1,000 regular industrial accidents, maybe more.

It’s been six years since the triple 100% nuke meltdowns occurred at Fukushima Daiichi d/d March 11th, 2011, nowadays referred to as “311”. Over time, it’s easy for the world at large to lose track of the serious implications of the world’s largest-ever industrial disaster; out of sight out of mind works that way.

According to Japanese government and TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) estimates, decommissioning is a decade-by-decade work-in-progress, most likely four decades at a cost of up to ¥21 trillion ($189B). However, that’s the simple part to understanding the Fukushima nuclear disaster story. The difficult painful part is largely hidden from pubic view via a highly restrictive harsh national secrecy law (Act on the Protection of Specially Designated Secrets, Act No. 108/2013), political pressure galore, and fear of exposing the truth about the inherent dangers of nuclear reactor meltdowns. Powerful vested interests want it concealed.

Following passage of the 2013 government secrecy act, which says that civil servants or others who “leak secrets” will face up to 10 years in prison, and those who “instigate leaks,” especially journalists, will be subject to a prison term of up to 5 years, Japan fell below Serbia and Botswana in the Reporters Without Borders 2014 World Press Freedom Index. The secrecy act, sharply criticized by the Japanese Federation of Bar Associations, is a shameless act of buttoned-up totalitarianism at the very moment when citizens need and in fact require transparency.

The current status, according to Mr. Okamura, a TEPCO manager, as of November 2017:

    “We’re struggling with four problems: (1) reducing the radiation at the site (2) stopping the influx of groundwater (3) retrieving the spent fuel rods and (4) removing the molten nuclear fuel.” (Source: Martin Fritz, The Illusion of Normality at Fukushima, Deutsche Welle–Asia, Nov. 3, 2017)

In short, nothing much has changed in nearly seven years at the plant facilities, even though tens of thousands of workers have combed the Fukushima countryside, washing down structures, removing topsoil and storing it in large black plastic bags, which end-to-end would extend from Tokyo to Denver and back.

As it happens, sorrowfully, complete nuclear meltdowns are nearly impossible to fix because, in part, nobody knows what to do next. That’s why Chernobyl sealed off the greater area surrounding its meltdown of 1986. Along those same lines, according to Fukushima Daiichi plant manager Shunji Uchida:

    ”Robots and cameras have already provided us with valuable pictures. But it is still unclear what is really going on inside,” Ibid.

Seven years and they do not know what’s going on inside. Is it the China Syndrome dilemma of molten hot radioactive corium burrowing into Earth? Is it contaminating aquifers? Nobody knows, nobody can possibly know, which is one of the major risks of nuclear meltdowns, nobody knows what to do. There is no playbook for 100% meltdowns. Fukushima Daiichi proves the point.

    “When a major radiological disaster happens and impacts vast tracts of land, it cannot be ‘cleaned up’ or ‘fixed’.” (Source: Hanis Maketab, Environmental Impacts of Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Will Last ‘decades to centuries’ – Greenpeace, Asia Correspondent, March 4, 2016)

Meanwhile, the world nuclear industry has ambitious growth plans, 50-60 reactors currently under construction, mostly in Asia, with up to 400 more on drawing boards. Nuke advocates claim Fukushima is well along in the cleanup phase so not to worry as the Olympics are coming in a couple of years, including events held smack dab in the heart of Fukushima, where the agricultural economy will provide fresh foodstuff.


IAEA Experts at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Unit 4, 2013 (Source: Wikimedia Commons)

The Olympics are PM Abe’s major PR punch to prove to the world that all-is-well at the world’s most dangerous, and out of control, industrial accident site. And, yes it is still out of control. Nevertheless, the Abe government is not concerned. Be that as it may, the risks are multi-fold and likely not well understood. For example, what if another earthquake causes further damage to already-damaged nuclear facilities that are precariously held together with hopes and prayers, subject to massive radiation explosions? Then what? After all, Japan is earthquake country, which defines the boundaries of the country. Japan typically has 400-500 earthquakes in 365 days, or nearly 1.5 quakes per day.

According to Dr. Shuzo Takemoto, professor, Department of Geophysics, Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University:

    “The problem of Unit 2… If it should encounter a big earth tremor, it will be destroyed and scatter the remaining nuclear fuel and its debris, making the Tokyo metropolitan area uninhabitable. The Tokyo Olympics in 2020 will then be utterly out of the question,” (Shuzo Takemoto, Potential Global Catastrophe of the Reactor No. 2 at Fukushima Daiichi, February 11, 2017).

Since the Olympics will be held not far from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident site, it’s worthwhile knowing what to expect, i.e., repercussions hidden from public view. After all, it’s highly improbable that the Japan Olympic Committee will address the radiation-risk factors for upcoming athletes and spectators. Which prompts a question: What criteria did the International Olympic Committee (IOC) follow in selecting Japan for the 2020 Summer Olympics in the face of three 100% nuclear meltdowns totally out of control? On its face, it seems reckless.

This article, in part, is based upon an academic study that brings to light serious concerns about overall transparency, TEPCO workforce health & sudden deaths, as well as upcoming Olympians, bringing to mind the proposition: Is the decision to hold the Olympics in Japan in 2020 a foolish act of insanity and a crude attempt to help cover up the ravages of radiation?

Thus therefore, a preview of what’s happening behind, as well as within, the scenes researched by Adam Broinowski, PhD (author of 25 major academic publications and Post Doctoral Research Fellow, Australian National University): “Informal Labour, Local Citizens and the Tokyo Electric Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Crisis: Responses to Neoliberal Disaster Management,” Australian National University, 2017.

The title of Dr. Broinowski’s study provides a hint of the inherent conflict, as well as opportunism, that arises with neoliberal capitalism applied to “disaster management” principles. (Naomi Klein explored a similar concept in The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, Knopf Canada, 2007).

Dr. Broinowski’s research is detailed, thorough, and complex. His study begins by delving into the impact of neoliberal capitalism, bringing to the fore an equivalence of slave labor to the Japanese economy, especially in regards to what he references as “informal labour.” He preeminently describes the onslaught of supply side/neoliberal tendencies throughout the economy of Japan. The Fukushima nuke meltdowns simply bring to surface all of the warts and blemishes endemic to the neoliberal brand of capitalism.

According to Professor Broinowski:

    “The ongoing disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station (FDNPS), operated by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), since 11 March 2011 can be recognised as part of a global phenomenon that has been in development over some time. This disaster occurred within a social and political shift that began in the mid-1970s (ed. supply-side economics, which is strongly reflected in America’s current tax bill under consideration) and that became more acute in the early 1990s in Japan with the downturn of economic growth and greater deregulation and financialisation in the global economy. After 40 years of corporate fealty in return for lifetime contracts guaranteed by corporate unions, as tariff protections were lifted further and the workforce was increasingly casualised, those most acutely affected by a weakening welfare regime were irregular day labourers, or what we might call ‘informal labour.”

In short, the 45,000-60,000 workers recruited to deconstruct decontaminate Fukushima Daiichi and the surrounding prefecture mostly came off the streets, castoffs of neoliberalism’s impact on “… independent unions, rendered powerless, growing numbers of unemployed, unskilled and precarious youths (freeters) alongside older, vulnerable and homeless day labourers (these groups together comprising roughly 38 per cent of the workforce in 2015) found themselves not only (a) lacking insurance or (b) industrial protection but also in many cases (c) basic living needs. With increasing deindustrialisation and capital flight, regular public outbursts of frustration and anger from these groups have manifested since the Osaka riots of 1992.” (Broinowski)

The Osaka Riots of 25 years ago depict the breakdown of modern society’s working class, a problem that has spilled over into national political elections worldwide as populism/nationalism dictate winners/losers. In Osaka 1,500 rampaging laborers besieged a police station (somewhat similar to John Carpenter’s 1976 iconic film Assault on Precinct 13) over outrage of interconnecting links between police and Japan’s powerful “Yakuza” or gangsters that bribe police to turn a blind eye to gangster syndicates that get paid to recruit, often forcibly, workers for low-paying manual jobs for industry.

That’s how TEPCO gets workers to work in radiation-sensitive high risks jobs. Along the way, subcontractors rake off most of the money allocated for workers, resulting in a subhuman lifestyle for the riskiest most life-threatening jobs in Japan, maybe the riskiest most life-threatening in the world.

Japan has a long history of assembling and recruiting unskilled labor pools at cheap rates, which is typical of nearly all large-scale modern industrial projects. Labor is simply one more commodity to be used and discarded. Tokyo Electric Power Company (“TEPCO”) of Fukushima Daiichi fame adheres to those long-standing feudalistic employment practices. They hire workers via layers of subcontractors in order to avoid liabilities, i.e. accidents, health insurance, safety standards, by penetrating into the bottom social layers that have no voice in society.

As such, TEPCO is not legally obligated to report industrial accidents when workers are hired through complex webs or networks of subcontractors; there are approximately 733 subcontractors for TEPCO. Here’s the process: TEPCO employs a subcontractor “shita-uke,” which in turn employs another subcontractor “mago-uke” that relies upon labor brokers “tehaishilninpu-dashi.” At the end of the day, who’s responsible for the health and safety of workers? Who’s responsible for reporting cases of radiation sickness and/or death caused by radiation exposure?

Based upon anecdotal evidence from reliable sources in Japan, there is good reason to believe TEPCO, as well as the Japanese government, suppress public knowledge of worker radiation sickness and death, as well as the civilian population of Fukushima. Thereby, essentially hoodwinking worldwide public opinion, for example, pro-nuke enthusiasts/advocates point to the safety of nuclear power generation because of so few reported deaths in Japan. But, then again, who’s responsible for reporting worker deaths? Answer: Other than an occasional token death report by official sources, nobody!

Furthermore, TEPCO does not report worker deaths that occur outside of the workplace even though the death is a direct result of excessive radiation exposure at the workplace. For example, if a worker with radiation sickness becomes too ill to go to work, they’ll obviously die at home and therefore not be reported as a work-related death. As a result, pro-nuke advocates claim Fukushima proves how safe nuclear power is, even when it goes haywire, because there are so few, if any, deaths, as to be inconsequential. That’s a boldfaced lie that is discussed in the sequel: Fukushima Darkness – Part 2.

    “As one labourer stated re Fukushima Daiichi: ‘TEPCO is God. The main contractors are kings, and we are slaves’. In short, Fukushima Daiichi clearly illustrates the social reproduction, exploitation and disposability of informal labour, in the state protection of capital, corporations and their assets.” (Broinowski)

Indeed, Japan is a totalitarian corporate state where corporate interests are protected from liability by layers of subcontractors and by vested interests of powerful political bodies and extremely harsh state secrecy laws. As such, it is believed that nuclear safety and health issues, including deaths, are underreported and likely not reported at all in most cases. Therefore, the worldview of nuclear power, as represented in Japan at Fukushima Daiichi, is horribly distorted in favor of nuclear power advocacy.

Fukushima’s Darkness – Part 2 sequel, to be published at a future date, discusses consequences.

Move Over Chernobyl, Fukushima is Now Officially the Worst Nuclear Power Disaster in History

The radiation dispersed into the environment by the three reactor meltdowns at Fukushima-Daiichi in Japan has exceeded that of the April 26, 1986 Chernobyl catastrophe, so we may stop calling it the “second worst” nuclear power disaster in history. Total atmospheric releases from Fukushima are estimated to be between 5.6 and 8.1 times that of Chernobyl, according to the 2013 World Nuclear Industry Status Report. Professor Komei Hosokawa, who wrote the report’s Fukushima section, told London’s Channel 4 News then, “Almost every day new things happen, and there is no sign that they will control the situation in the next few months or years.”

Tokyo Electric Power Co. has estimated that about 900 peta-becquerels have spewed from Fukushima, and the updated 2016 TORCH Report estimates that Chernobyl dispersed 110 peta-becquerels.[1](A Becquerel is one atomic disintegration per second. The “peta-becquerel” is a quadrillion, or a thousand trillion Becquerels.)

Chernobyl’s reactor No. 4 in Ukraine suffered several explosions, blew apart and burned for 40 days, sending clouds of radioactive materials high into the atmosphere, and spreading fallout across the whole of the Northern Hemisphere — depositing cesium-137 in Minnesota’s milk.[2]

The likelihood of similar or worse reactor disasters was estimated by James Asselstine of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), who testified to Congress in 1986: “We can expect to see a core meltdown accident within the next 20 years, and it … could result in off-site releases of radiation … as large as or larger than the releases … at Chernobyl.[3] Fukushima-Daiichi came 25 years later.

Contamination of soil, vegetation and water is so widespread in Japan that evacuating all the at-risk populations could collapse the economy, much as Chernobyl did to the former Soviet Union. For this reason, the Japanese government standard for decontaminating soil there is far less stringent than the standard used in Ukraine after Chernobyl.

Fukushima’s Cesium-137 Release Tops Chernobyl’s

The Korea Atomic Energy Research (KAER) Institute outside of Seoul reported in July 2014 that Fukushima-Daiichi’s three reactor meltdowns may have emitted two to four times as much cesium-137 as the reactor catastrophe at Chernobyl.[4]

To determine its estimate of the cesium-137 that was released into the environment from Fukushima, the Cesium-137 release fraction (4% to the atmosphere, 16% to the ocean) was multiplied by the cesium-137 inventory in the uranium fuel inside the three melted reactors (760 to 820 quadrillion Becquerel, or Bq), with these results:

Ocean release of cesium-137 from Fukushima (the worst ever recorded): 121.6 to 131.2 quadrillion Becquerel (16% x 760 to 820 quadrillion Bq). Atmospheric release of Cesium-137 from Fukushima: 30.4 to 32.8 quadrillion Becquerel (4% x 760 to 820 quadrillion Bq).

Total release of Cesium-137 to the environment from Fukushima: 152 to 164 quadrillion Becquerel. Total release of Cesium-137 into the environment from Chernobyl: between 70 and 110 quadrillion Bq.

The Fukushima-Daiichi reactors’ estimated inventory of 760 to 820 quadrillion Bq (petabecquerels) of Cesium-137 used by the KAER Institute is significantly lower than the US Department of Energy’s estimate of 1,300 quadrillion Bq. It is possible the Korean institute’s estimates of radioactive releases are low.

In Chernobyl, 30 years after its explosions and fire, what the Wall St. Journal last year called “the $2.45 billion shelter implementation plan” was finally completed in November 2016. A huge metal cover was moved into place over the wreckage of the reactor and its crumbling, hastily erected cement tomb. The giant new cover is 350 feet high, and engineers say it should last 100 years — far short of the 250,000-year radiation hazard underneath.

The first cover was going to work for a century too, but by 1996 was riddled with cracks and in danger of collapsing. Designers went to work then engineering a cover-for-the-cover, and after 20 years of work, the smoking radioactive waste monstrosity of Chernobyl has a new “tin chapeau.” But with extreme weather, tornadoes, earth tremors, corrosion and radiation-induced embrittlement it could need replacing about 2,500 times.

Kolin Kobayashi: "Nuclear: we really live in madness"

Kolin Kobayashi: "Nuclear: we really live in madness"



Kolin Kobayashi: "Nuclear: we really live in madness"

The first global antinuclear forum was held in Tokyo in 2016. Japanese journalist Kolin Kobayashi, based in Paris and correspondent for Days Japan , has been involved since the first hour.We find himin a café in the center of the capital, which hosted its third edition in November 2017 and bringstogether speakers and activists from Russia, Spain, Niger, the two Americas and of course Japan.The Forum ended in Bure , in the Meuse.In addition to alerting about the intrinsic dangers of nuclearenergy,Kobayashi aims to highlight the workers exposed in a country wheremajor earthquakes are expected, even as the latter continues to count the "collateral" victims of the accident Fukushima nuclear power plant in 2011. " We do not talk about it;otherwise, we would be panicked."


Former Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said he realized in the aftermath of the plant explosion that the secretary general of the nuclear safety agency was not a "specialist in nuclear power". nuclear energy "but an economist!A metaphor with global value?

Yes.The situation was really chaotic because the Japanese authorities were not at all ready to face a major nuclear accident.The government could not imagine an accident of the magnitude of Chernobyl.They did not manage the situation and I think nothing has changed, until today.The situation is the same!It is in any case unmanageable, an accident of this order.But the international nuclear lobby is trying to show that it is capable of handling a nuclear accident and talks about it as if it were a naturalrisk to manage, like a typhoon or a earthquake.The major nuclear accident is counted among these risks;one of many, in short: that's the official speech.But it's incomparable!Two years after March 11, 2011, in the city of Sendai, a large international Symposium has been set up with the UN organizations.Despite the fact that this is an accident that leaves us still in a state of emergency today, they have not talked about Fukushima at all.It's incredible, is not it?

What is the situation of the 130,000 people displaced in Japan because of the nuclear situation, and who are being asked to come back?

"The international nuclear lobby is trying to show that it is capable of handling a nuclear accident and is talking about it as a naturalrisk to manage."

There are 100,000 displaced people inside and outside the Fukushima Department.Why are the Japanese authorities deciding to bring back these refugees?It is an extremely important social and economic problem.They threaten to cut subsidies to refugees who have gone elsewhere and who would not come back.The authorities are trying to say: finally, the radioactive consequences are not that important, you can come back, you just have to be careful not to eat contaminated food, not to go through a certain contaminated neighborhood;so you can continue to live.But the majority of the population lived off the land ;the people were peasants and farmers, the department was one of the most important agricultural centers ... There is the village of Iitate: it was a home of organic farming!Just after the accident, everything was contaminated.A documentary is also devoted to this question: Iitaté, chronicle of a contaminated village , of the director Doi Toshikuni.You can not clean the forest, the mountain or the fields;you can not shave everything, lift 30 centimeters of soil and put it somewhere else.So we clean up a bit like that, like a diplomatic greeting, but no more.

Is this a way for the government to minimize the disaster?

Of course.We must not allow people to panic and not create an economic crisis.

Does it take from the majority of the population?

There are some farmers particularly attached to their terroir.Some, desperate, have committed suicide.Others are trying to work with scientists to minimize radioactive contamination and restore their fields.Older farmers can no longer live in a prefabricated house of an average of 29.7 m² lent by the state;they are so traumatized ... Those who had family homes owned by their parents, their grandparents, welcoming their children and grandchildren, these all end up in a home.Resigned and aware that, even with carcinogenic diseases due to radioactivity, they have not long to live.They resign themselves, and come back.

Wandering Roar in the Deserted Irrigated City of Namie, by Toru Hanai

They know they will not leave these lands to their families.

The majority of farmers, aware of all this, know very well that after their generation, it will be over.The kids will not come back.

What can they pass on to future generations?

Young people are afraid of being infected and families with children do not want to come back.So the villages, even if they were already small - 6,000 people were living in Iitate before the accident, 400 now - are mostly made up of a population of people over 65 who, once dead, do not will have nobody behind them.Hasegawa Kenichi was a farmer;he chose to return with his mother of more than 80 years suffering from Alzheimer's disease to continue living elsewhere than in a prefabricated booth.He is well aware that his village and his house are completely contaminated.But he resigned himself to it.It's pretty tragic.

How to manage this central contradiction between the security emergency of the plant and the protection of the workers delivered to its exhibition?

"He is fully aware that his village and his house are completely contaminated.But he resigned himself to it."

In fact, they do not protect them.Economic efficiency is a priority.Workers who are in areas of strong radiation, risk areas, are not the official employees of TEPCO [ Japanese multinational and, before its nationalization, the largest private world producer of electricity,ed ] : it uses subcontractors.In France too, there are "official" employees who do not go - except in exceptional cases - to dangerous places.In Japan, there are ten floors of outsourcing.TEPCO asks a general company to manage all the floors.And, in the end, the company on the top floor has no contact with TEPCO.The management and control of the health of workers who are currently working in Fukushima Daiichi - 6,000 people, every day!- are in no way rational or convincing.Nobody supports this.

Are they supported by trade union organizations?

The official unions linked to TEPCO are completely pro-nuclear - like here in France.Trade unionism does not exist in companies with fewer than 50 people.There is, of course, a support association for nuclear workers (in fact, there are several associations grouped together to form a strong association) who comes into contact with them and provides them with a notebook to document their career, in which they have to postpone the positions they have held, how long, where they have been, how many doses, etc.This notebook is useful for archiving their state of health.Normally, it is up to the Japanese authorities to provide it to all workers, even those who will only work ten days: it is useful in the long run.Some cancers are known to occur after 30 years;after Hiroshima, radiation-related cancers broke out after half a century.

By Toru Hanai

There are no compulsory medical exams?

The association offers this declarative notebook because the bosses of small subcontracting companies ask the temporary workers not to reveal the actual doses received.The employees know this, and they also know that by declaring the number of actual doses they will not be able to work the next day - since their radiation threshold is exceeded.The exhibition will depend on the areas where they will be sent.If someone is sent to a highly contaminated area, he can work in one go for just one hour or ten minutes a day;others, who do decontamination work in villages, can work longer.They must make more or less controlled cuts.Those who need money, such as day laborers, camouflage and thus clutter the numbers.You must have heard of the Japanese mafioso, the Yakuzas, who are trying to find precarious workers ready to die ...

These workers declare themselves "ready to die"?

"Those who need money, like day laborers, camouflage and wager the numbers."

No, but they know it's a risk to take.They are precarious workers who pile up in some working-class neighborhoods and look for work every day.These people are physically sick;the missionaries of subcontractors, the Yakuzas, offer a lot of money for being "ready to die".

Is Japanese public opinion properly informed about the fate of nuclear workers?

Officially speaking, the Japanese are not informed anyway;it remains an invisible area, except for activists, researchers and those who are interested in these problems themselves.The rest of the population is not aware.But scandals sometimes break out because it also concerns Yakuzas and illegal hirings, without official pay slips, etc.This remains of the order of social news, as there is every day: it passes and we forget.

A news item and never an economic and structural problem?

Here.

How much are the wagesoffered to workers?

It is unclear.The hiring company levies a salary margin: at the end of the ten floors, the margin taken becomes important and the employee hardly touches more than the SMIC 2.The state had promised a special subsidy for nuclear workers, but the money was totally absorbed by the companies.It's illegal.A premium that depended on where the person worked (700 to 800 euros per month).

Eliminating Contaminated Wild Boar Around the Irradiated Deserted City of Namie, by Toru Hanai

So has the Japanese state used tax money to fatten subcontractors and underpay individuals?

Yes.

Without protest movement?

It's like France!The vast majority of people are hijacked by the misconception that without nuclear power, our life and our modern civilization will no longer work, that there will not be enough energy for hospitals, schools ...

Japan reacted by shutting down, for a time, all the power stations ...

Before that, Japan was covered by nuclear power up to 35%.We are far from the 75% of France.It is easier to convert into conventional electricity, fuel oil, coal, hydro-energy ...

What economic links exist between French and Japanese engineering?

"Civil nuclear and military nuclear are the front and back of a coin: there is no difference, it is a continuity."

Japan had since the early 1970s a cooperation agreement with France.They exchange know-how, especially about reactors.The Japanese are working much more with American engineering but the French nuclear industry lobby has begun to be more present - especially on the issue of reprocessing.There is a reprocessing plant in Japan, that of Rokkasho , which is entirely of French technology.That's why Areva was there: to exchange technologies with each other.There is a strong link at the moment because Japan wants to conquer the potential of military nuclear power to be elected as a member of the Security Council.Without a nuclear warhead, we are swept away!Club members are nuclear-related, so these are strong links.Currently, ASTRID is a new fourth generation reactor project;it is the extension of Superphénix .It is a Franco-Japanese invention.The Japanese had a Monju prototype breeder that failed - like Superphénix - but they want to keep investing.

Superphénix was supposed to recycle the depleted nuclear used by the main plants to recreate energy ...

They manufacture Mox fuels by mixing plutonium and then recycle each plutonium to remake Mox and put it back in the reactor.That was the plan written on the table.But it does not work !In France, it is also a problem since Superphénix does not work anymore.We no longer need to do a reprocessing.The raison d'être of the La Hague plant is in question.What to do, then?For the nuclear industrial lobby, we must move in this direction by saying that the plutonium is basically not intended for military nuclear but will be used for peace!Civil nuclear and military nuclear are the front and back of a coin: there is no difference, it is a continuity.The first nuclear reactor invented to make French atomic bombs was developed, non-democratically, on the civilian use of all nuclear power plants.Then the French experimented with the American type, to return to their own technology.Despite the technical differences between military and civilian nuclear, they are based on the same principle: the fission is controlled in a power plant while deliberately leaving a critical mass in an atomic bomb.

By Christopher Furlong

We are talking about a more accessible chemical element than uranium, thorium,as a possible "clean nuclear" and more ethical.What is it?

It is said that with thorium there would be less pollution.But there is always a waste that remains and we have no solution for the waste of thorium!It's like in Bure , where we dump waste 500 meters underground.But imagine that tunnels break, there are explosions (as was the case in the United States 60 years ago, and we do not talk about it) that generate a large contamination ... The question of nuclear waste remains the most important because it is without solution.Japan is such a seismic country that there is no solid place to hide such waste!It's not like in Finland .And if the magma of our planet moves ... For the moment, having no real solution, the most reasonable thing is to store on the surface and monitor.

In 2015, there were 700,000 tons of nuclear waste around the Fukushima Daiichi power plant...

"In a liberal and capitalist country like Japan, how would you hire 800,000 people to make a sarcophagus around three reactors?"

We are in a very precarious situation.In the first three reactors of Fukushima Daiichi, there are swimming pools at the top of the buildings.It's an American style construction: they did not create a structure adapted to a country like Japan.After the earthquake, the watertightness of the pools became weakened.And there are 1,500 fuel blocks that are stored and we do not know what to do.It would have been necessary to dig a hole and put them in the ground, in a safe place, but the Fukushima accident generated such a high level of radioactivity that we do not have a robot capable of performing these tasks - by far !Nuclear workers can not go to these areas - nothing can be done.In the event of a new earthquake there, it will be necessary, as Naoto Kan said, to evacuate the populations of the region of Fukushima and that of Tokyo.How would one do, technically and economically?

Yet, another earthquake is announced in the next twenty years ...

We really live in madness ... We do not talk about it;otherwise, we would be panicked.In Fukushima Daiichi, radioactivity continues to spread because there is no containment.What was done at Chernobyl was at the expense of how many dead workers?Between 500,000 and 800,000 people worked and died or became seriously ill to cement.And let's be clear: it's thanks to them that Europe has been saved!But it was the time of the Soviet Union, which could order the people to come and help.In a liberal and capitalist country like Japan, how would you hire 800,000 people to make a sarcophagus around three reactors?

Would it be desirable?

We can not demand that ...

Eliminating Contaminated Wild Boar Around the Irradiated Deserted City of Namie, by Toru Hanai

Have there been any studies on fauna and flora around Fukushima?

" Zero risk does not exist ", we hear from all officials of international organizations.There are scientists who have brought evidence of malformations in the genes of plants, butterflies, animals - as well as Chernobyl, of which there are extensive studies.These should be recognized internationally but the nuclear lobby dominates the debate and claims that there are no victims of radioactivity.This is the speech we hear in Japan.

You are involved in the organization of the antinuclear social forum: it is indeed quite rare that are gathered at the same place different actors on these questions ...

In the general opinion of the French and Japanese population, it is said that it is a purely scientific and technical question, a matter of energy change.But, I repeat, the nuclear issue is inseparable from the military and civilian question.We must really grasp nuclear power as a whole.As soon as there is a major accident, there are enormous consequences for health, the economy, politics and society: we must understand all the phenomena.To discuss this globality, it is not enough to only do an antinuclear conference to talk about one side of nuclear safety and the other about waste.We must talk about all the problems.The structure of the World Social Forum allows to address all the scientific, social, economic and political questions: it tends to create an international network in order to globalize the challenges of the citizen populations, the militants and the scientists to say that it is unacceptable to continue with nuclear.

The half life of plutonium is only 24,000 years. What are you so worried about?
What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
