"Extraordinary Meeting"



IAEA

The accident may have faded from the international headlines, but it is essential that all of us - Member States, the IAEA and other key stakeholders - maintain our sense of urgency and our commitment to implementing the Action Plan in full. Much work remains to be done and we must not relax our guard.




The Action Plan encouraged Member States to work cooperatively to maximize the lessons learned from the Fukushima Daiichi accident and to produce concrete results as soon as possible.

It's happening folks...



We must stay vigilant this time....TMI and Chernobyl faded...

Fortitude.

Thanks ATS for providing this venue. Extraordinary folks.

I understand that principle VERY WELL purple ...what one must contain when stepping outside is the ultimate dilemma..one becomes what they hate ...but what alternative is there? when good men do nothing evil flourishes ...should not some few of us understand that war is physical and mental ...and 'men' that understand more than the animal must call upon it's powers understanding the implications of the price ?

Nuke power is tied to the industrial military complex as we all know. It is supported and protected by it. As a power source it is stupid, has always been stupid dangerous and horrendously expensive. It didn't matter it was dangerous, it was for making BOMBS that are just as/more dangerous. The whole idea of nuke power is about killing.

Until we stop killing each other we will probably have nuke power. We need to change our minds about the idea of killing our fellow beings, once, if and when we do that, we will see the change. The system will not be able to sustain troops putting down their weapons, refusing to fire, people not showing up for work at weapons factories. All it would take is everyone to decide not to kill another human today.

I know, crazy idealist or what!!!?

Inspection of Unit 4 Fuel Assembly



Foreign stuff found (looks like rubble):

TEPCO examines fuel rods at Fukushima plant The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is studying how to safely remove fuel rods from the crippled facility. More than 1,500 used and unused fuel assemblies remain in the water pool of the No. 4 reactor. Tokyo Electric Power Company will have to remove them before it can fully decommission the reactor. TEPCO on Monday examined one unused assembly to ascertain the extent of the damage to the fuel rods. It removed 2 fuel assemblies in mid-July for the checks. Officials selected unused ones as they are safer to handle. The utility says it found no significant damage or change in the rods' shape. The utility plans to examine the fuel pellets inside the rods in a few days. The fuel pool at the No. 4 reactor building was badly damaged by last March's hydrogen explosion. TEPCO plans to begin removing the fuel assemblies in December next year. Aug. 27, 2012 - Updated 21:06 UTC (06:06 JST)

400 Tons Contaminated Water Per Day




More tanks for contaminated water at Fukushima

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says it will build new tanks to store contaminated water. Tokyo Electric Power Company says the plant is producing 400 tons of contaminated water per day. This is partly because groundwater is entering the reactor building through cracks in walls.

TEPCO says the existing tanks have a capacity of 220,000 tons and are 85 percent full. It says they are likely to be full in around 3 months if water accumulates at the current rate.

The tanks will boost capacity by 170,000 tons. The utility says that should be sufficient until November next year. After that, the utility may have trouble securing space for extra tanks. It will have to flatten wooded land in its compounds. Aug. 27, 2012 - Updated 21:06 UTC (06:06 JST)

This thread has been my main source of information for me on the disaster. I have checked it every day sense the disaster started. It was the basis for a lot of the researcher Ive done, not just on the disaster but the fields of particle physics, nuclear engineering,a bunch on reactor design. Thank you and all the rest of the people that took the time to pull all of this information off the web, and all the videos and tepoc pdfs. This thread has such a wealth of information and you guys should be proud of yourselves. Just know that it is helping people and keep up the good work.

Latest update: several hundred cars have been tested prior to entering NZ with no contamination found.

I am finding out what level this 'no contamination' is. All cars are extensively cleaned prior to import as part of biosecurity so they should be very clean.

Still digging for the 2011 report.. must not be pretty.

May be grasping for straws but pretty sure Z and Silv noted similar too; seemed for quite some time (and even now) that when we break something big, the usual outlets will release it in a more 'public form', 3-10 days later.

Pat on the back ATS, leading the media again, unrecognised. I bet there isn't a single reference to this thread on a news source meanwhile much content has originated from it.

True but evil thrives on perception, without perception, happiness is irrelevant and the infinite duality of existence is meaningless.

May sound cold hearted but you reap what you sow, military nuclear industrial complex has dishonourably thrown the fine balancing act of a healthy biosphere out of kilter forever. I probably can't have healthy kids in future, the way things are going with culminating biosphere levels, so some extra evil worries me not.

Aomori ordered to suspend cod shipment after excessive cesium found

TOKYO, Aug. 27, Kyodo

english.kyodonews.jp/news/2012/08/178828.html


The government ordered Aomori Prefecture on Monday to suspend shipment of Pacific cod hauled off Hachinohe in the northeastern prefecture as excessive levels of radioactive cesium were detected in them, implementing such a ban for the prefecture for the first time after last year's Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Radioactive cesium exceeding the government's allowable safety level of 100 becquerels per kilogram was detected twice in the cod hauled off Hachinohe, the government said.

The government limited the shipment suspension to cod hauled off Hachinohe as Pacific cod habitat is not large compared with other migratory fish and those containing the maximum allowable level of cesium were caught in areas close to each other, according to the government.

When the local government's examination detected 116 becquerels of radioactive cesium in cod caught off Hachinohe in June, local fishermen voluntarily refrained from shipping them.

The fishermen lifted the restraint in late July, but they voluntarily stopped shipment again after 132.7 becquerels of radioactive cesium was detected on Aug. 9.

The level of radioactive cesium detected in fish caught in two or more locations needs to stay below the limit for more than a month for the shipment ban to be lifted.

Civic group seeks referendum on whether to restart nuclear plant

SHIZUOKA, Japan, Aug. 27, Kyodo

english.kyodonews.jp/news/2012/08/178842.html


A civic group sought a referendum Monday on the issue of whether to restart a suspended nuclear power station in central Japan, by submitting a petition to the Shizuoka prefectural government.

The group submitted a total of 165,127 signatures to the prefectural government urging it to enact an ordinance to hold a nonbinding referendum on the restart of the Hamaoka nuclear plant on the Pacific coast.

Shizuoka Gov. Heita Kawakatsu said at a press conference, "We'll advance discussions in the direction of realizing such a referendum."

Kawakatsu had been negative on holding such a vote on the issue but changed his stance after seeing the petition, saying, "The nuclear power plant is an attention-grabbing matter. I fully understand" people's wish to express their opinions.

People's bids in Tokyo and Osaka for similar referendums were rejected by their respective assemblies.

Kawakatsu is expected to submit a proposal for the referendum to a regular session of the prefectural assembly starting Sept. 19.

Many Shizuoka assembly members have not showed a clear stance on the referendum.

The Hamaoka nuclear facility's operator, Chubu Electric Power Co., halted operations at the plant last year following a governmental request in the wake of the March 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

You know, even if nuke plants were run properly, and safety was taken seriously, we would still have endless leaks and meltdowns. Only less.
And that my friends is why they have no right to exist.

If there is one thing I know to be true, it's that angry people always point their anger in the wrong direction.

While the survey result found that the workers at the Fukushima I and II have suffered various forms of stress, the damage that had the greatest impact on the workers was the experience of discrimination and slander.

Majority of public favors nuclear-free society: gov't draft report

TOKYO, Aug. 28, Kyodo

english.kyodonews.jp/news/2012/08/179073.html


The government said Tuesday in a draft report presented to a meeting of experts that public consultations on the future of nuclear power in Japan show that a majority of citizens favor a nuclear-free society.

At the meeting, however, whether the latest government poll has succeeded in accurately grasping the views of the public was called into question, with some of the experts saying the survey covered many more middle-aged and older men than younger people and women.

In efforts to formulate a new energy policy following the March 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, the government has held public hearings nationwide, implemented a poll and solicited comments online and through other means, asking for people's views on the degree of Japan's reliance on nuclear power in 2030.

The government-proposed options are zero percent, 15 percent, and 20 to 25 percent of total power generation -- compared with 26 percent in 2010.

The report presented by the government at the third meeting to analyze the results of the surveys with a group of experts said, "We can say for sure that a majority of citizens want to achieve a society that does not rely on nuclear power generation."

"On the other hand, opinions vary on the speed to realize it," it said.

The report will be finalized in consideration of advice received from the experts and submitted to a ministerial meeting tasked with formulating Japan's new energy policy, national policy minister Motohisa Furukawa told reporters after the meeting.

The new energy policy, to be put together as early as in September, is expected to include a target to abolish nuclear power generation, but the envisioned timing to achieve the goal may not be stated in the policy, according to sources close to the matter.

The government said in the report that 70 to 80 percent of respondents of a government-implemented c poll and other polls conducted by mass media preferred the idea of reducing the nation's reliance on nuclear power to either 15 percent or zero percent by 2030.

This means that although opinions vary in accordance with gender and age, at least a majority of citizens share a desire to reduce the nation's reliance on nuclear power, it said.

But it has also learned that about a majority of citizens have "some sort of concerns" regarding ending nuclear power generation by 2030.

While the zero option drew the greatest support overall, an age-specific analysis shows those aged up to 30 had more supporters for the 20-25 percent nuclear plan than other age bracket groups.

One expert also said a strong support for the no nuclear plan suggests "the possibility of minorities having remained silent."

ahahahaahahaahahahahaahaaaaa... a government , of JAPAN "study"...eheheheh (out...of...breath...)...hahahahahaahahahahaha...

now let us see the polar opposite ...a wikileaks study of the said populace

Odd thing... watching such an innovative and adaptive culture that lives on a soo very violent and challenging splinter of fractured land on the very precipice of the deepest place in the ocean would, in the majority, disregard all knowledge of where they live, geology and history in favor of an industry that clearly has some "profit yes we own government" , before honesty issues.

go go Godzilla

where are the low hanging power lines when one needs them
[on edit]

an interesting tidbit is the "time phasing"...most 'governmenting bodies' wishing to push unpopular laws into existence is by use of the Stanford memory curve...memory of daily events drops off noticeably at 9 and almost
completely at 18 months.

so it is pretty obvious they are calculating the chances of more failure against public perception rather than ACTUAL , REAL: WORLD FACTS.

Totally predictable modern , corporate fantasy thinking....hey tepco hire the elf and unicorn corps to be there to clean up in times of emergency, then sell the public on how nuker power is both magically delicious and NOW SOME HOW DESPITE ALL THE EVIDENCE magically safe on Honshu
...
( on second edit ( I forgot the punchline ) )
oh wait no the people didn't

so maybe the reality has made much of the corporate / government magic so much ephemera, as it always was. Do Wert and Chive have a stake in the nature of the human game coming out for the best, does the hundredth monkey syndrome work with us humans, and can enough find the ability to wake in time?

war is an odd thing at all levels and agree with those on this thread that perseverance is an almost heroic trait

hopefully Wert and chive are right

but if not at least som eof the "bad" good human will make the selfish pay for every inch they take ....

I think we all feel that one way or another
