High radiation outside Japan's evacuation zone, says IAEA


Vienna - The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Monday that high radiation levels were measured recently not only inside, but also outside the 20-kilometre evacuation zone around Japan's stricken Fukushima nuclear plant.

Asked whether Japan's authorities should consider widening the exclusion zone, a senior IAEA official said: 'There should be a consideration about this.' The official requested anonymity. www.monstersandcritics.com...

ive posted this in other threads, there are a bunch hovering around the rad topic, so forgive me if this is taboo i just wanted to reach as many eyes as possible:

I did some screen grabs as i too had problems getting into the plotting tool on the epa site...

This was enough to make me leave vegas. I've heard that a baseline reading is around 60(for gross beta cpm); this is unconfirmed and anecdotal, but its 65 right now. If 65 is a proper baseline for Lost Wages than this is not cool at all....

I linked up with a friend in vegas...he was REALLY spooked. infact he got on a plane for Oz yesterday. when I talked to him at 6:30pm pdt he said that the epa beta count was down to 240 Monday afternoon.






Here is the screen shot for right now in vegas:

Thats great info, and thank you for posting. My idea with this thread is to gather as much info as possible in one place on the widespread radiation concerns, the radiation will spread.

Feel free to add as much info as you have, that goes for everyone!

Associated Press via Fox local affiliate, reports Iodine-131 detected in Arizona state.

0.1 millirem detected.

using 1 mSv = 100 mrem, it equals 0.001 millisievert.

Nuetron beams seen 13 times now!

 



Per the Japan Nuclear Agency: the Radiation level at Fukushima reactor No. 2 at its highest level recorded so far. From Reuters: "Radiation at the crippled Fukushima No.2 nuclear reactor was recorded at the highest level since the start of the crisis, Japan's nuclear safety agency said on Wednesday. An agency spokesman said 500 millisieverts per hour of radiation was measured at the No.2 unit on Wednesday. Engineers have been trying to fix the plant's cooling system after restoring lighting on Tuesday." And some more truthy news from Kyodo:

Electric Power Co. said Wednesday it has observed a neutron beam, a kind of radioactive ray, 13 times on the premises of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant after it was crippled by the massive March 11 quake-tsunami disaster.

TEPCO, the operator of the nuclear plant, said the neutron beam measured about 1.5 kilometers southwest of the plant's No. 1 and 2 reactors over three days from March 13 and is equivalent to 0.01 to 0.02 microsieverts per hour and that this is not a dangerous level.www.zerohedge.com...

MEXT. has been doing daily readings at monitoring posts away from fukushima plant, as well as other sampling efforts concerning radiation fallout, soil sampling, drinking water, sea and air contamination levels and so on.
even though the readings given are low in figure for most posts, except for a few which seem to be having higher readings closer to the fukushima plant, the levels for each may not necessarily be deemed as being safe with long term exposure by the numbers alone, though they do seem to be getting smaller on average so hopefully posing less of any risk associated with radioativity levels away from the plant itself.

since there seems to be continuous figures given for these reading posts, and to the possibility that levels being presented in readings are as accurately shown by mext. or other sites for japan area itself, the fear mongering of limited facts or figures is not as restrained as some make it out to be.

the onus is on other government heads to say whether or not there is risk for their own, not by conspiracy of what japan does or will not show in readings as public view or support for japans own countymen, and since japan has already, even without much facts or data being provided to the public, stated that unsafe and high levels in radiation are around, what more should be said. no matter how high the numbers are at the plant, the levels are told unsafe so should be taken as something of risk and avoided by moving as far away as possible from the areas in question.

www.mext.go.jp...

take it as you may. not saying there is no cover up, just that warnings of risk are being given by japanese government, as to how low or how safe they may be in presentation, it's still up to the people of japan on how high they should value such risks and whether or not they continue living in areas where such risks may become a problem with reguards to any long term exposure especially while the source, the plant itself, will not be ascertained in being safe to be around for a long time to come yet.

THREE earthquakes greater than 6.4-magnitude rocked Japan last night as the Japanese Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) began testing for radiation in the sea near the badly damaged Fukushima power plant.....

.......The first and third quakes measured 6.6-magnitude, while the second was recorded as a 6.4-magnitude shock, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS).

The third quake was at a depth of only 15km off the eastern coast of the country, raising fears of further damage to the already devastated region.

There is a wide spread cover-up going on. Widespread! Not just Japan. I dont trust them (Government) to give accurate readings on the radiation when they wont even begin to tell the truth on the facts of the Fukishima Nuclear Plant Disaster.

Look at this quoted post of mine, it show that they have been recording nuetron beams since March 13th!

Thank you for your addition!


From your link -

By releasing data from two monitoring stations of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) from Japan and California, researchers from the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics in Vienna have calculated backwards to estimate the true levels of radiation from Fukushima.

"The estimated source terms for iodine-131 are very constant, namely 1.3 x 10^17 becquerels per day for the first two days (US station) and 1.2 x 10^17 becquerels per day for the third day (Japan)," the institute said in a German-language statement posted on Wednesday on its website.

"For cesium-137 measurements, (the US station) measured 5 x 10^15 becquerels, close, while Japan had much more cesium in its air. On this day, we estimate a source term of about 4 x 10^16."http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,14938445,00.html

The radiation dose to infants had been recorded over 30 km from plant - may be over 100 millisieverts



The radiation dose received by one-year-old infants outside of a 30-kilometer radius of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant since Saturday's explosion at the plant may have exceeded 100 millisieverts, a computer simulation conducted by the government showed Wednesday.

''There are some cases in which they could have received more than 100 millisieverts of radiation, even if they're outside the 30-kilometer radius and in the event that they spent every day outdoors since the explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant,'' Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told a news conference.

Haruki Madarame, chairman of the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan, told reporters, ''The figure represents the level that one-year-old infants would have received and accumulated in their thyroids by midnight Wednesday since the explosion.''http://english.kyodonews.jp/news/2011/03/80575.html

Japan finds radioactive contamination in more vegetables, water



Japanese authorities discovered more leafy vegetables and water contaminated by radioactive substances on Wednesday, nearly two weeks after a quake-hit nuclear plant went on alert.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan warned consumers across the country against eating a wide range of leafy vegetables harvested in Fukushima Prefecture, including broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and spinach.

It is the first time that Kan has warned against consumption of some farm products in the wake of the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi power station, which has been crippled by the March 11 earthquake and ensuing tsunami.english.kyodonews.jp...

[Size=4] More Of What They Are Hiding


Najmedin Meshkati, a nuclear environmentalist expert at the University of Southern California said to “Reuters.” ...
He wondered also whether or not the seawater being used to cool the dangerous reactors was then being dumped back into the ocean.

“This is now radioactive waste water,” Meshkati said. “Has there been any measurement of its radiation effect?”

While no other numbers of radioactive measurement have been reported, officials at Fukushima have confirmed that some of the water used to cool the reactors was returned to the sea after use.

I have seen where its already been verified that they are dumping it back into the ocean......They said the radioactive molecules would break down better in the vast ocean than dumping on land.......

That could be, except that in the ocean are fish, aka seafood.
Radiation ingested is far worse for us humans. I dont know about the seafood themselves.


I expect to see skyrocketing numbers... from the [Size=4] 600,00 Spent Fuel Rods!


People familiar with the plant said there are seven spent fuel pools at Fukushima Daiichi, many of them densely packed.

Gundersen said the unit 1 pool could have as much as 20 years of spent fuel rods, which are still radioactive.

We’d be lucky if we only had to worry about the spent fuel rods from a single holding pool. We’re not that lucky. The Fukushima Daiichi plant has seven pools for spent fuel rods. Six of these are (or were) located at the top of six reactor buildings. One “common pool” is at ground level in a separate building. Each “reactor top” pool holds 3450 fuel rod assemblies. The common pool holds 6291 fuel rod assemblies. [The common pool has windows on one wall which were almost certainly destroyed by the tsunami.] Each assembly holds sixty-three fuel rods. This means the Fukushima Daiichi plant may contain over 600,000 spent fuel rods.my.firedoglake.com...

Double you tee eff. this is 30km from the nuclear plant! this is not cool at all. I can't wait to see the truth in the future headlines! I bet you we'll see the headline "fukushima worse than chernobyl" in the next 3-6 months.

Extremly high radiation found in soil.


EDIT: Found this one just now: Japan Rad Map. Looks to be in REAL TIME!! Wonder why we don't have something similar? Either way i found it Here. There's all kinds of good clickables there, but most in Japanese.

Thanks for that great addition!


Sadly, so sadly we dont have to wait. News that this is worse than Chernobyl are here, with
experts opinions.



Christopher Busby (born 1945) is a British scientist and activist known for his work on the health effects of ionising radiation. In addition to his academic appointments he is the director of Green Audit, an environmental consultancy agency,[1] and scientific advisor to the Low Level Radiation Campaign which he set up in 1995.[2] Busby was also the National Speaker on Science and Technology for the Green Party of England and Wales,[3][4] and the Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risks, based in Brussels.en.wikipedia.org...




Radioactivity form the Fukushima Catastrophe is now reaching centres of population like Tokyo and will appear in the USA. Authorities are downplaying the risk on the basis of absorbed dose levels using the dose coefficients of the International Commission on Radiological Protection the ICRP. These dose coefficients and the ICRP radiation risk model is unsafe for this purpose.

This is clear from hundreds of research studies of the Chernobyl accident outcomes. It has also been conceded by the editor of the ICRP risk model, Dr Jack Valentin, in a discussion with Chris Busby in Stockholm, Sweden in April 2009. Valentin specifically stated in a videoed interview (available on www.llrc.org and vimeo.com) that the ICRP model could not be used to advise politicians of the health consequences of a nuclear release like the one from Fukushima. Valentin agreed that for certain internal exposures the risk model was insecure by 2 orders of magnitude. The CERRIE committee stated that the range of insecurity was between 10 and members of the committee put the error at nearer to 1000, a factor which would be necessary to explain the nuclear site child leukemia clusters. The ECRR risk model was developed for situations like Fukushimathealphanews.com...


Dr. Chris Busby : The University of Ulster's Professor Christopher Busby says the Fukushimi nuclear plant explosions are comparable with The Chernobyl Disaster.
