Let's split the difference between 4 and 10 million, because of BS on both sides.

Either way this kind of info is disturbing.


Even if it is 1 million times, things are not good at all.

EDIS RSOE



Quote from EDIS....Where I first saw this report t 11am GMT

Situation Update No. 63
On 27.03.2011 at 08:29 GMT+2

Workers were evacuated on Sunday from a reactor building they were working in after high doses of radiation were detected at Japan's stricken nuclear power plant in Fukushima, the plant's operator said. Tokyo Electric Power Co , the plant's operator, said radiation 10 million times the usual level was detected in water that had accumulated at the No.2 reactor's turbine housing unit.

Here is the link to the web site

As far as I am aware, and from experience, EDIS do not rush to post any reports until they know they are more or less irrefutable. At time of posting this 18.30GMT, EDIS had not updated this with a reduction/retraction of their previous update.

Your link does not say 10 million times.

Can you provide a direct link for your information?

Thanks

"The number is not credible," said Tokyo Electric Power Co. spokesman Takashi Kurita. "We are very sorry." A few hours later, TEPCO Vice President Sakae Muto said a new test had found radiation levels 100,000 times above normal — far better than the first results, though still very high. But he ruled out having an independent monitor oversee the various checks despite the errors.


They're adding smoke to the smoke screen. The real story not being reported is what's the plutonium count?

"No, no we don't need Independent monitoring"

They really need to Chernobl this plant. At least try to save the majority of the island. Japan is such a rich culture with beautiful people. It is a shame that pride is keeping them from burying this plant under tons of sand, borian and cement. Make a new mountian on the island, that's what I say

You're correct. The time to bury the plant actually came a couple of weeks ago. They're just in denial at this point.

Bury it.

"There's a RADIOACTIVE plant with no power to cool the reactors. Lets drop WATER on it to keep it cool."

Ummm... Could that water then turn radioactive?

"OF COURSE... But we'll worry about that later..."

you think well try this for thought rods heat up, to melting point they put water on the rods,that is H20, the steam produces hydrogen gas, can you say hydrogen bomb? yes worse, and just think there bring in fresh water now not sea water.

All these press releases are done to keep you in fear......Your not going to die till its time for you to die....Cut the t.v. off and have a good time....Screw the press. Don't you know by now they are nothing but paid liars....

Count to 10 Million.


Yes that sounds SOOOooo much scarier that 1,000 millisieverts.


But it sure SELLS newspapers!

Japan radiation spike report 'mistaken'




The operators of a stricken Japanese nuclear plant have apologized for a "mistake" in reporting a radiation spike 10 million times above normal.



The mistaken reports seems to be their M.O. these days, doesn't it? There seems to be a battle between those who want to tell the truth and those who wish to hide it. Despite all the madness going on they don't have complete control of news releases thus some truth seeps out once in awhile.

Nightline - Atomic Refugees


ABC's Nightline - Mayor of Minamisoma " We officially told the townspeople that the news reports about the explosion was a mistake, to stay in your homes you will be safe - It's a lie he's been atoning for ever since"


Just why are you being lied too?

Is it so the Japanese can save face or is it about greed?

Germany seems to be is telling us it's about greed.

Nuclear Groups sue over idle plants


By Gerrit Wiesmann in Berlin The Financial Times

Four nuclear power companies are preparing lawsuits against the German government in the wake of its decision to idle seven of the country’s 17 nuclear-power stations.


The nuclear industry is doing it's best to hide the truth in order to protect it's investors. This is what it is all about folks.

The area around Chernobyl flourishing?


YES!

National Geographic Article:

...Recent studies suggest that the 19-mile (30-kilometer) "exclusion zone" set up around the reactor has turned into a wildlife haven.

Roe deer bounce though the deserted houses while bats roost in the rafters (related photos: inside today's Chernobyl).

Plants and trees have sprung back to life, and rare species, such as lynx, Przewalski's horses, and eagle owls, are thriving where most humans fear to tread....

"Wild boar like to live in former villages, and I have found many birds' nests in the buildings," Gaschak said.

Even the site of the explosion seems to be bursting with life..... news.nationalgeographic.com...

So can this thing go radio active or what?

Most of you are so uneducated. You read some article, watch a documentary, and talk here as if you know something about it. Do what I do and tread carefully before you spread fear, about a complex subject you know nothing about.

Let me make this very clear to those of you who have adopted the ignorant cap. You cannot simply bury the plant in the state it's in. They would have if they could. Bring up pride into this is relative to the ignorance you try to mask.

Do some research, and you'll find that it will be pretty uneffective to bury the plant now. All you'll have is a trouble that is now buried.

Further more, by reading these replies it is clear that ATS is full of people without much of a life really. Only this kind of people would actually bother to type one lined responsed, the likes of " oh my god it's happening" or "oh my god this can't be good". I thought every post was to count for something. At least articulate why you think that is, and provide some explanation.

Those who have no lifes, will cheer on to see doom happen, it's obvious. Most posts in this thread have contributed NOTHING to anything.

I'm still perplexed by the way people seem to want this to happen. Maybe so they can feel vindicated and prove some kind of a point too?

Into the ocean, into the food chain, and eventually into you.

The MOX plutonium fuel that appears to be leaking has a half life of 24,000 years so it'll be a gift that keeps on giving...

It is ludicrous when they say things like distance will "disperse" the radiation and it won't be harmful to human health. That might be statistically true but if you are the unfortunate soul who happens to inhale that one plutonium atom and get it lodged in your lungs then, well, it is not so "statistical".


I am sorry but that is nothing but FEAR MONGERING! I thought we were supposed to DENY IGNORANCE?

I think it is time for a bit of science instead.

This is from a site who is trying to SELL services so it is going to also do a bit of "fear Mongering" as just good sales technique.


...The isotope uranium 238 is used to estimate the age of the earliest igneous rocks and for other types of radiometric dating.

Phosphate fertilizers are made from material typically high in uranium, so they usually contain high amounts of it.

Uranium in the environment

Although uranium is radioactive, it is not particularly rare. It is widely spread throughout the environment and so it is impossible to avoid uranium. Uranium can be found naturally in the environment in very small amounts in rocks, soil, air and water. Humans add uranium metals and compounds, because they are released during mining and milling processes.

In air the uranium concentrations are very low. Even at higher than usual concentrations in air, there is so little uranium present per cubic meter that less than one atom transfers every day.

In water most of the uranium is dissolved uranium that derives from rocks and soil that the water runs over. Some of the uranium is suspended, so that the water gets a muddy texture. Only a very small part of uranium in water settles from air. The amounts of uranium in drinking water are generally very low....

People always experience exposure to a certain amount of uranium from food, air, soil and water, as it is naturally present in all these components. Food, such as root vegetables, and water will provide us with small amounts of natural uranium and we will breathe in minimal concentrations of uranium with air. The concentrations of uranium in seafood are usually so low...


www.lenntech.com...



New Hampshire's bedrock contains naturally occurring radioactivity. A few examples with health importance include radon, radium 226, radium 228 and Uranium. Radon is a gas dissolved in water; most other radionuclides are dissolved minerals in water. SOURCE



# Uranium is a very heavy metal which can be used as an abundant source of concentrated energy.

# Uranium occurs in most rocks in concentrations of 2 to 4 parts per million and is as common in the Earth's crust as tin, tungsten and molybdenum. Uranium occurs in seawater, and can be recovered from the oceans.

# Uranium was discovered in 1789 by Martin Klaproth, a German chemist, in the mineral called pitchblende. It was named after the planet Uranus, which had been discovered eight years earlier.

# Uranium was apparently formed in supernova about 6.6 billion years ago. While it is not common in the solar system, today its slow radioactive decay provides the main source of heat inside the Earth, causing convection and continental drift.

# The high density of uranium means that it also finds uses in the keels of yachts and as counterweights for aircraft control surfaces, as well as for radiation shielding....

The area around Chernobyl flourishing? I never heard anyone say something so ludicrous. What makes you say that? there are still children being born with 2 heads, same goes for animal life and plant life. The whole area is completely distorted. I've done a lot of research on that years ago. Also our media gave quit some attention to it.

What is happening is Japan is very serious. Not to be dismissed.


They have had more than one special in the last couple of years, filming the area around Chernobyl. Nature is reclaiming the area. Here is but one of many videos you can view:



There are all sorts of larger animals now, plants, trees reclaiming the streets.. it is recovering. And it certainly isn't taking thousands or millions of years. And it was much worse than this disaster probably ever has a chance of being.

I'm not saying it's a good situation. Any damage to the environment is too much. But it's not gloom and doom, the world is going to die because of it... as many in this thread would have you believe.

Thank you I did not click on the update button.

This is sad, I really hope they made an error here.
