The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

11 March – news on this Fukushima anniversary week

Today we remember the catastrophe at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear station, and the fact that this is a continuing disaster for that local area, for Japan, and for the world.  Eight years later, Fukushima nuclear wreck is still resulting in mounting tons of radioactive water, with no solution in sight. Japan continues its  culture of cover-up and denial about this national tragedy. An indigenous leader continues the fight for the truth on Fukushima’ s radioactive impact on the world, and condemns the University of California, for its role in the cover-up and denial of the seriousness of the situation. Eight Years on, the Fukushima  disaster still poses health risks“Recovery Olympics” does not impress everyone.

Nuclear insanity – education is desperately needed to alert the world to the nuclear weapons danger.  IAEA calls for more funding for its safeguards activities. The very dubious “market” for Small Modular Nuclear Reactors.

Global politics made more dangerous by climate change.

Rising temperatures threaten health of fetuses, researchers say.  On this warming planet, mosquito-borne diseases are increasing. Climate change and the uncertain future for migratory birdsMining company Glencore behind global campaign to undermine climate change information.

ARCTIC. Melting of Arctic sea ice will greatly enhance warming in Arctic.

INDIA. Nuclear threat still hangs over India and Pakistan.

KASHMIR. People of Kashmir – stuck in a dangerous, potentially nuclear, conflict.

JAPAN. The stigma continues, however much the propaganda spouts about the Fukushima nuclear ‘recovery‘. “Ice wall” – the effort to contain Fukushima’s radiation. Fukushima No. 1 storage tanks hold 1.1 million tons of treated water.   Fukushima nuclear workers still facing radiation danger, eight years on. Accusations of scientific misconduct concern city in Japan. 8 Years On: Tainted Soil Use Plan Draws Backlash from Fukushima Residents.    Schools refitted in Fukushima, but enrolment remains dismal. Former PM Junichiro Koizumi now a formidable foe to the nuclear industry.

UK. The future of Britain’s Hinkley C nuclear project is in doubt.   Misleading inaccuracies in BBC report on Hunterston nuclear reactors.  Europe’s oldest nuclear reactors, with cracks in their barrels, Hunterston B – should not be restarted.  Ceredigion County Council has reiterated a long-standing nuclear-free commitment.

SAUDI ARABIA. International Atomic Agency would require Saudi Arabia to have the same nuclear safeguards as Iran has.

EUROPE. Nuclear lobby groups Foratom and Romatom propagandise for nuclear – at “climate-friendly” event.

LITHUANIA. Lithuania wants Belarus to convert its Russian-built nuclear power plant to gas.

SOUTH KOREA. South Korean President Moon Jae-in praised North Korea’s offer to dismantle a key nuclear production complex.

USA. 

FRANCE. Many infringements found in Orano’s (formerly Areva) nuclear site at Tricastin.  France France facing the burden of nuclear waste.  Nuclear industry manages to cancel a film showing, about Fukushima nuclear disaster.  Bay of Biscay graveyard of nuclear-armed Russian submarine.

RUSSIA. Russia considering making spaceplane powered by a nuclear reactor.  Russia ready to enter deal to build nuclear power plant in Czech Republic.  Russia keen to have Bulgaria go into debt to Russia, to implement Belne nuclear station.

GERMANY.  All use of nuclear power will end in Germany by end of 2022.

CANADA..  JUSTIN TRUDEAU FACES CALLS TO RESIGN RE: SNC-LAVALIN SCANDAL

SOUTH AFRICA. No nuclear power future for South Africa.  South Africa’s Jacob Zuma regime went all out for nuclear power, with secretive manipulations.

  2. Fukushima Anniversary


    Radioactive waste in the ocean for 75 years
    http://gweb.live/videos/watch/vcaOX2rW0gc

    Watch “Chris Busby Radioactive Baltic Sea” on YouTube

    Tokyo should be evacuatedWatch “Shocking Tokyo Japan Radiation Test by Dr. Chris Busby (Fukushima Fallout)” on YouTube

    There is not a thing more they could have done or can do about Fukushima that they did not do or are not doing , except maybe sacrifice a number of people like the Russians did.. One or more fuel pools went up and, caught fire too.
    There was a US aircraft Carrier there, spraying foam and boronated water on the teactors. There were helicopter spraying chemicals and boron on the reactors..

    There was a 9.0 earthquake that dislodged the nuclear fuel in the 3 reactors. No way to moderate the cores. Two generated hydrogen gas that exploded. One underwent a prompt nuclear criticality like Chernobyl. What was left of any fuel inside the reactors melted through the reactor containment and is at the bottom of the reactors.

    High level Nuclear waste, that is in the water running over all the fuel and debris from Fukushima, is going into the arctic current.

    There was radioactive gas, vaporized RADIONUCLIDE, debris, ash from the reactors and fuel purl that went all over the world in the air. A lot to the arctic.

    The UK, US, France and especially Russia , have dumped a hundred thousand of tons or more of high level and medium level nuclear waste into the arctic ocean, in the past 80 years( that would be the size of a couple of mountains worth) There is an arctic current, going by Fukushima that is getting RADIONUCLIDE contaminated water from the site. 300 tons a day..

    Since The neoconservative lying clown, came into power, old US reactor, that are as old and more dangerous than Fukushima are allowed to stay opened.
    The regulation for fail-safes in reactor meltdown emergencies have been gutted under Trumps EPA and Nuclear Regulatory Commission . Insurance of adequate backup, gutted. Damaged containment can be overlooked now more than ever.
    They don’t even have sprinklers or backup generators in 2 Louisiana reactors that work.
    Regulations for closing old, unsafe reactors in unsafe hurricane zones and earthquakes zone has been gutted, by Trump and its goons.

    Safety regulations for reactors gutted. Regulation of nuclear waste and its proper sequestration-Gutted.
    Hi level waste stored insanely and unsafely.

    High evel. Nuclear waste is now labeled low level. That means, that poorly stored high level waste like that stored at Fukushima, before the catastrophe, could catch fire and destroy a city or entire region.

    The trumptrolls will go on and on about what Obama did not do during fukushima and after. Its true they did nothing to protect us from Fukushimas in Murica. They did nothing, to create international pressure to make sure Japan did not open damaged reactors, from the 9.0 magnitude tohoku earthquake, that could turn into future Fukushimas.

    Trump and its goons promised to do something about fukushima and, have made matters much worse. They have increased the risk potential, for future nuclear accidents substantially.
    They are hawking 24 nuclear reactors and, nuclear weapons to the people responsible for 911. The SaudiArabians.

    Trump and its goons say nothing about the 20 old unsafe, damaged reactors reopened in Japan. Reactors that are all potential Fukushimas.

    They say nothing of the 70 old beat up reactors, in the United States of America, that are waiting-to-happen Fukushimas. Old damaged and flawed nuclear reactors, with overfilled fuel pools and nuclear waste stored right by them in flimsy Cannisters , on concrete pads, outdoors.n
    Trump and its crew, Never gave a damned about fukushima. Just more propaganda and lies.

    The normal reaction in the face of fukushima would be to have all nuclear reactors closed, like Germany and Spain are doing. To stop manufacturing onuclear weapons. To Ban nuclear missiles and weapons. To sequester the deadly nuclear waste properly.

    Damaged reactors in Japan have reopened Under trump. Radioactive food comes out of Japan to here, under Trump.
    TRUMP even encourages nuclear arming Japan. Not that rightwing-democrats like obammy did so much different . They did not brazenly deregulate nuclear reactor safety so completely and pathologically like trump HAS. OBAMAs admin did not deregulate high level nuclear waste, that can destroy half the country with a single fire., by calling it lo level waste.
    Those of us who have multiple contacts and family in Japan, know Japan is in a mess. The widespread illness that has a lid on it.

    The same thing can and will occur in the RADIONUCLIDE saturated and ravaged, USA or France, or Europe or Russia or Pakistan or Canada, when the next major nuclear reactor explosions and fuel pool, waste fires occur. It will not be horrendous for many in the area around such a catastrophe.

    This US government is not lifting a finger to prevent another Fukushima type catastrophe, in the old rotten reactors here. Reactors that are surrounded by and, chocked full of high level nuclear waste.

    Trump and his goons are making it worse. They will lie their like they did about Santa Susana and so many other place, when a melt down or worse occurs here. All the ienablers, living in the dreamworlds that support the Trump and, the conservative pronuke nuclear-empire democrats are screwing over America our children and the world.

    Ohio republikan lawmakers are trying to create a nonprofit to promote nuclear energy and nuclear reactor research research in America in the shadow of Fukushima, Chernobyl, TMi with taxpayers money. That is when when renewable technology is cheap and abundant.
    Trump and the republicans are funding nuclear reactors for Bill Gates and Nuscale . Trump is saying that nuclear waste is good for u, its hormetic!

    https://energynews.us/2019/03/08/midwest/ohio-bill-would-create-nonprofit-to-promote-advanced-nuclear-research/

    The republlikans and the likes of nancy Pelosi will get sick when the American fukushima occurs. People will watch their friends and family and grand kids get sick and die, as they get sick.

    One of more fuel pools was blown up and caught fire at Fukushima. It will happen here and or elsewhere soon, with so many beat up old reactors around the world.. Used fuel rods are full of radioactive cesium and strontium. There is way too much cesium 137 in Yokohama and Tokyo that are over a hundred miles from fukushima, for a fuel pool fire not to have occurred. That is according to Kaltofen and Busby sample analysis from those places.
