Unit 3 Temperatures going back up...and 4 workers contaminated

6 partner company's workers, who maintained water treatment faculties, conducted contamination check of full-face masks when they returned from the work site to 1F's Main Anti-Earthquake Building. As a result, inner side of the filter for 4 out of the 6 workers were confirmed to be contaminated. We will confirm whether the 6 workers might have absorbed contaminated materials inside of their bodies using whole body counter.

Good Morning Folks!! To follow up on my quick post last night...

NHK is reporting Unit 3 at 101.3 C. There had been much hoopla reported about Unit 3 going below boiling and thus being "under control". So even with the core spraying the temp is rising again.

Also NHK reporting more details on the 4 workers exposed while replacing equipment at the water treatment facility.

At least 4 workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant failed to evacuate even though their radiation monitor indicated levels of beta rays exceeding the set limit.

The 4 workers' level of exposure is believed to have been 9.5 millisieverts

Their beta ray counter indicated levels above the evacuation benchmark of 5 millisieverts per hour, but the workers did not evacuate and continued repairs.

maybe we should split the Topic of "F'Shima" into different Topics,
like i wrote one Thread dedicated only for the technical Matters

“Technical matters” has been the focus of this thread for some time. In fact, it remains along with that other on the Physics forum the best informed combined resource with an investigative approach on the Fukushima event available on the Internet. As such it IS a target of those who would like to see its credibility undermined. I think you realise that already.

You are lying,
please read the Posting from the Thread-Op
(everyone who is concerned should do this!!!),
in fact some People Hijacked this Thread a few Months ago and started
to kill this Thread through a technical endless Debates,
the real Shills

There is No-One who know what is going on there,
Tepco corrected already so many Hand-Outs and Press-Releases
to create a Confusion,
some because of own stupidity and some because of translation Errors!

Also there is No-One who know how this Catastrophe will end!

A Debate, Discussion about a Topic where we do not know much
will lead into Silence, there is a point when a Discussion became fruitless
(because some important and urgently needed Points are unknown!),
imo. that Point was reached at page 700!

So we need to create a Collective Hive from where we can pick up
a new Approach and than we can start to kill all the bloody Pigs with one Strike!


The Afternoon-Shake was a short but hefty one
let us hope that we do not see more of them!

And the poor worker that had no charcoal filter in his full-faced mask...

At approximately 8:18 am on September 15, we found a partner company worker unequipped with a charcoal filter to the full-faced mask after the worker entered the site of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. We will check the worker by whole body counter if he took in radioactive materials.

But hopefully this indicates that they are finally checking!!

Hooray!!! Areva is suspending uranium production!!

PARIS — French nuclear giant Areva is suspending uranium production at two plants because of low demand from Japanese power stations in the wake of the Fukushima disaster, a spokeswoman said Thursday.

"This decision is based on the events in Japan, which today has led to a drop in deliveries to Japanese power producers and short term downward pressure on prices in this market," Areva said in a statement.

Areva said there were no plans to suspend or lay off the less than 600 workers from the plants, who will be asked to attend training sessions or use up holiday allowances while their plants are taken off-line.

Perfect time to retrain personal for SOLAR production and innovation!!!

Industrial waste: 144,420 becquerels per kilogram at one facility in Fukushima

Out of the 110 incineration facilities tested, levels of radioactive cesium exceeded 8,000 becquerels per kilogram at 4 sites in Fukushima Prefecture and one each in Iwate and Chiba prefectures. The highest measurement was 144,420 becquerels per kilogram at one facility in Fukushima.

And what amount of radiation escaped into the air during the incineration process? Arnie warned of that.

TEPCO quietly paid 40 billion yen to areas near nuclear plants

Tokyo Electric Power Co. has been handing out about 2 billion yen (about $26 million) a year in unpublicized payments to local governments near its nuclear facilities, sources said Sept. 14. Though the large sums in taxes and public grants paid by the firm to local communities are public knowledge, the full scale of its additional, anonymous giving has not previously been revealed.

It total, over the past 20 years, the company spent more than 40 billion yen on payments known internally as "funds to deal with local communities." One TEPCO executive said: "We paid the donations because we wanted to obtain the understanding of local governments on the construction of nuclear power plants. (We did not disclose the amounts of the donations because) we wanted to avoid criticism that we had collusive relations with local authorities."

According to several TEPCO executives, the electric power company earmarked 1 billion yen to 2 billion yen at the start of each fiscal year for the payments. When necessary, that amount would be increased during the year, raising the average annual spending between 1990 and 2010 to more than 2 billion yen. That was in addition to the money flowing into local coffers from nuclear fuel taxes and grants mandated under the three laws on electric sources.

Second Fukushima plant unlikely to reopen: (Hmmm???)

TOKYO — Japan's new industry minister has acknowledged it will be difficult to restart the companion nuclear plant to the one at the heart of the country's atomic crisis, media reports said. The Fukushima Daini (number two) nuclear complex is about 12 kilometres (seven miles) from the stricken Fukushima Daiichi (number one) plant where reactors went into meltdown following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The Daini plant was less badly hit but was unlikely to gain approval to restart operations, Yukio Edano said in an interview Thursday with local media including the Kyodo news agency.

"I do not believe that we can obtain local approval," Kyodo quoted him as saying, adding that approval from local authorities was a "precondition" for any plant to restart operations. All four reactors at the Fukushima Daini plant were hit by the twin natural disasters but have been brought to a stable state of "cold shutdown".

Japan Atomic Energy Body Sees Technical Hurdles Ahead (AHA!)

Japan's efforts to safely dismantle the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex is expected to be fraught with technical challenges and take more than a decade to complete, the government's Atomic Energy Commission said Wednesday. Removing the fuel from the spent-fuel pools and the reactors is vital to ensuring there will be no radiation leakage from the quake-ravaged facility.

Experts fear that their structures might have been weakened by the heat and radiation from the damaged fuel and the large amount of seawater that was poured into them as an emergency measure to cool down the fuel. The commission, an independent body tasked to formulate the nation's nuclear policy, will explain to other countries about a decommissioning plan during the annual general meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency, to be held in Vienna next Monday. Commission chairman Shunsuke Kondo previously offered his view that it would take at least 10 years before the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., becomes ready to remove the fuel from the three damaged reactors.

"It took five years to start a similar operation after an accident at the Three Mile Island plant in 1979," said Katsuichiro Hijikata, head of Tepco's Nuclear Seismic Engineering Center. "It would likely take longer at the Fukushima plant, given that it has three damaged reactors as opposed to just one at the TMI plant, and that the extent of the damage is far more serious."

The problem with this is that the government is not telling people about how dangerous the nuclear explosion is... indeed they have been successful in preventing the media from informing the public about the extremity of the radiation that is currently not only in Japan but also spreading across the entire globe. With a nuclear explosion even more serious than the one at Chernobyl in 1986, why would the Japanese government make no effort in evacuating its citizens? Ever thought that maybe there is a reason behind all this covering up? Maybe it was not a 'natural' disaster after all? Maybe some sort of organisation called the NWO stimulated the whole play using their HAARP?

Don't link to myself usually but just in the interests of continuity.

Okay - so we have another Tepco page. The utility company is no longer a money earner and therefore a money loser. It is the scapegoat for the entire nuclear corporate mafia and publically executed, well sold off, whereupon the receiver will be allowed to wriggle free of any obligations to pay the victims. The perfect crime.

It would seem this thread has now been diverted to help service that objective. But lets take a look at what some entities wish you to be diverted from focusing on. First off, oh Tepco again. Let’s get them out of the way.

The Bomb Plant

The United States, using AREVA, a French government owned contractor, is building a MOX plant, at a cost of billions of dollars for U.S. taxpayers, that will produce an even deadlier form of AREVA-made plutonium-based fuel that was loaded into Fukushima Daiichi Reactor Number Three a year ago.

Building MOX reactors is pure insanity. They are FILLED with plutonium (compared to normal reactors). Plutonium will stay in the environment for the next 240 000 years or so... basically FOREVER.

Yes, isn't that a smack to the forehead. A lot of people will not be aware. The wider implications of the sheer power of the global nuclear industry are revealed in that article.

Also maybe relevant to that. Though not specifically MOX related is this. Fairly old story now but current situation.

Why have alarms not been sounded about radiation exposure in the US?

Nuclear operator Exelon Corporation has been among Barack Obama's biggest campaign donors, and is one of the largest employers in Illinois where Obama was senator. Exelon has donated more than $269,000 to his political campaigns, thus far. Obama also appointed Exelon CEO John Rowe to his Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future.

Dr Shoji Sawada is a theoretical particle physicist and Professor Emeritus at Nagoya University in Japan.
He is concerned about the types of nuclear plants in his country, and the fact that most of them are of US design.

"Most of the reactors in Japan were designed by US companies who did not care for the effects of earthquakes," Dr Sawada told Al Jazeera. "I think this problem applies to all nuclear power stations across Japan."

Using nuclear power to produce electricity in Japan is a product of the nuclear policy of the US, something Dr Sawada feels is also a large component of the problem.

"Most of the Japanese scientists at that time, the mid-1950s, considered that the technology of nuclear energy was under development or not established enough, and that it was too early to be put to practical use," he explained. "The Japan Scientists Council recommended the Japanese government not use this technology yet, but the government accepted to use enriched uranium to fuel nuclear power stations, and was thus subjected to US government policy.

And another quote from the same good doctor. This one illustrates the real issue for the Japan nuclear industry, and a reason why they must heap the whole Fukushima catastrophe on TEPCO and sink it, and they hope the whole issue of the nuclear industry and its abysmal safety record.

"I think the Fukushima accident has caused the Japanese people to abandon the myth that nuclear power stations are safe," he said. "Now the opinions of the Japanese people have rapidly changed. Well beyond half the population believes Japan should move towards natural electricity."

I had meant to comment on the video you posted earlier, the one on Fukushima kids having heart attacks. Good find. It underlines how the real problem now is the hot particles (or radioactive particulates) that came down and continues coming down from the damaged nuclear plants. It also underlines the criminal lack of action taken by the Japanese governing authorities.
