All I get today from the webcam, is just a test-pattern. I guess everybody else gets that. Whatever happened to TEPCO's own webcam? Can't seem to find the URL for that, and I am just being too lazy to search for it.

I was watching last night and that fog was thick dude, it started at ground level and so quickly it was everywhere.

The cam was zoomed in to R3 & 4, all you could make out was the tops of the cooling towers and then gone.

It was like looking out the window of a airplane at 30,000ft travelling through cloud. A hour later, grey screen.

FWIW, I can still here sounds on the webcam, christ only knows what they are?

TEPCO One pic per hour web cam

Web cam

Someone figured out how to get to the archive back in the 550s pages. Will be worth a look again as the live cam has been compromised for now. Gotta run though.

Yes Black screen but the sounds of someone working were quite clear. Also, there was a bright flash on the cam so I suspect they are moving, adjusting or repairing the cam (they could be reinforcing the cam for the coming storm)? Or, someone has decided to take the cam down?

Just have to wait and see what happens after sun up (should be soon). and see if the plants are still intact. From the final feeds last night it seemed that there was far more smoke (steam) coming from the reactors - I wonder if something happened and TEPCO finally had to admit that there are major problems with unit1 hoping people wouldn't ask too many questions of the other units?

I live and work near the coast and can personally attest to the the fact that thick fog can and does occur that is of such opacity that visibility drops to fifteen feet or less at times. It rolls in and stays especially if the wind is stagnant. In general this doesn't last too long, but it can hang for a while depending on a number of factors; temp, humidity, dewpoint, etc.

Great job in all the new links that have been turned up!

A few more haikus:

Crisis continues
The poisoning of our world
Is it on purpose?

We will stand as one
Across the globe, united
Our voice will be heard

Silence of the press
Few words relevant of late
Gather them all here

Pray for the people
Who hear nothing but the lies
We shall not forget

Clarion call, this
Use it as an example
Of what can go wrong

5/12/2011 -- BREAKING NEWS !! NILU - Norsk Institute = ZARDOZ = radiation at EMERGENCY

Looks like we have a high level of radiation here and its all according to their plan for the NWO.

Now Des if you would like someone to be upset at you can figure out whom is responsible for this blog , I cannot seem to find an individuals name any where on it ( which is a bit odd for a blog) and oddly it claims to have been on the web since 2006 , but I find nothing earlier that the month of march this year ( perhaps I AM JUST HAVING A BAD DATA DAY)


Interesting blog with a lot of historical data backed up by research that does add to the debate about the realities of radiation exposure and explosive events at nuclear reactors. Of course there are some outrageous statements/opinions made that don't match up to the reality of the data that has been collected so far on Fukushima Daiichi, like no criticality events after the the plants were SCRAMed on 3/11 and all the RPVs are sealed and intact. If anyone believes that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell....

The truth is out there, somewhere in between the extremes... we just need to keep digging for it.

The weather channel shows quite it of radar activity. If you click on the "play" link under the map, you will see a west to east directional flow to the system. Which is good for Tokyo, but not so good for areas east of Fukushima Dai-ichi, ie the Pacific Ocean...

As mentioned a watch needs to be kept for when TS Aere enters the region as this will impact the direction the wind is blowing in. The forecast track takes it south and east of the troubled area. Winds in the northern and western portion of a cyclonic system in the northern hemisphere travel to the west and south due to the Coriolis effect.This will e very bad news for Tokyo and areas east of Fukushima.

And what happens if a stronger tropical storm/hurricane hits Fukushima and destroy reactor 4 building? Ah yes, we are totally screwed.


W7VOA Steve Herman
In mid-March trusted source with proven hi-level access to LDP told me severity of #Fukushima-1 would be revealed only after few months.

Yep...

zardoz.nilu.no...

These are showing some really high levels. Bq/m2 rates.

Look at this one for idodine 131: zardoz.nilu.no... North American rates

and this one for cesium 137: zardoz.nilu.no...

Norwegians again I believe as I read someone was emailing them about this on another forum.

These are off the charts, off the end of the map readings.


edit to add: here is the reason they called it zardoz.


Trailer for Zardoz (1974)

Sean Connery playing an assassin for the rich, who were living protected from the world wide radiation in a new reset world that was massively contaminated, and he assassinated groups of survivors.

I'm watching NHK now and there's a news report on. These poor people still think they are going to be able to return to their homes. It's heartbreaking.

U.S. Ready To Support Fukushima Effort 'For Years': Roos

TOKYO (Nikkei)--The U.S. will spare no effort to help Japan end the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear crisis, Ambassador John Roos recently told The Nikkei, saying it is in the world's interest "to put the best minds to work" on the challenges that remain.

The administration of President Barack Obama "has made it clear from the very beginning that this is a multidimensional problem" that will go on for "years and even decades," Roos said in an interview this week.

"And it is the full intent (of) the United States to be of assistance to Japan in any way possible for not only the initial stage ... but months and years to come," he added.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission experts and other specialists continue to keep watch on the situation at Fukushima Daiichi from the U.S. embassy, backed by colleagues in the U.S. in an effort involving "probably hundreds of experts," according to the ambassador.

I know crowdsourcing the radiation levels as a result of this disaster has been mentioned, but am not sure this article has been posted here. So here it is...just in case.

Crowdsourcing Japan's radiation levels

And, by the way, Radiation from Japan affecting dairies in Hawaii.

ripple...ripple...raging ripples....


THE operator of Japan's stricken Fukushima nuclear plant reported new problems yesterday, including a water leak from a reactor vessel and another spill of contaminated water into the ocean.

The update by Tokyo Electric Power Company came as the government announced a cull of thousands of cattle and other livestock now roaming the 20km evacuation zone around the Fukushima plant.

Emergency crews have been battling to bring the tsunami-hit and radiation-leaking plant into stable "cold shutdown" some time between October and January.


This is way beyond TEPCO speak...this is major assh0le speak...can you say "full meltdown"...


The water level inside had fallen below the bottom of the 4m-long fuel rods, suggesting they had been exposed to the air, increasing the risk of a dangerous full meltdown.[...www.theaustralian.com.au...]

New Medical site for us to monitor...


Advice on radiation exposure from Japanese nuclear accident

Advice for Australians remaining in Japan on food and water precautions, the availability and use of potassium iodide tablets and on appropriate sheltering from radiation if required have been provided by Australia's Chief Medical Officer and the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA).

Extensive advice on these new topics of concern, together with information for people returning from Japan and for use by GPs is contained on the ARPANSA website and is updated regularly.


I like...



he ARPANSA modelling of airborne radioactive material released from Fukushima Dai-ichi predicted that during the 24 hours, for releases starting from Monday 9 May mid-morning, any plumes of airborne radioactive material would predominately be pushed north and east, mainly over Northern Japan. The modelling predicted that landfall is not likely to occur over Tokyo during this time.

For the following 24 hours, for releases starting from Tuesday 10 May mid-morning, changing weather systems would push any plumes of airborne radioactive material to the east and then south-west, over Southern Japan. Landfall in Tokyo may be expected during this time. The radiation levels from these plumes would be very low, with negligible consequences to health.

For the following 36 hours, for releases starting from Wednesday 11 May mid-morning, any plumes of airborne radioactive material would predominantly be pushed to the north-west, over Northern Japan. Landfall in Tokyo is not expected during this time.

Long-range modelling (up to 12 days) for releases during this time period show that the general plume behaviour includes movement over Russia and USA, as well as circulation over the North Pacific Ocean. The radiation levels from these plumes would be minimal and the health consequences negligible. Due to weather patterns either side of the equator, there will be minimal plume movement to the Southern Hemisphere.



Discussions continue with medical organisations and state and territory health authorities on these issues. Further information will continue to be provided by the Australian Government as the situation develops.

NHK just reported the yellow sand forecast. I presume this is actual sand being blown west to east across Japan from China, I didn't have the sound on at the time.

Someone once told me that the sand on the volcanic island of Tenerife is blown across from the Sahara. Assuming the air around Fukushima is radioactive, does this mean there will be radioactive sand blowing across the Pacific to Hawaii and then the West coast of the US?

This one quote stuck out like a sore thumb...


"There must be a large leak," Junichi Matsumoto, a general manager at the utility also known as TEPCO, told a news conference. "The fuel pellets likely melted and fell, and in the process may have damaged ... the pressure vessel itself and created a hole," he added.
