Nobody died from radiation at Fukushima

The 3 Japanese nuclear reactors and their cooling ponds with MOX Fuel/Plutonium and Uranium are still critical and spewing radiation out far worse than Chernobyl.


As soon as Tellurium 132 was detected in the Mariana Islands, Hawaii, and mainland USA.....the Federal EPA ceased releasing data to the public on what they detected.

The very DAY they detected Tellurium 132....no more info.

Tellurium 132 has a life on only 100 hours....only found when reactors have gone critical.

You better BELIEVE the radiation from Japan is killing people.

a few possibilities:
1. They are already Dead or still on the Bridge
2. The Story was just Fiction
3. They are still on duty but have no Time for Fame
4. They stay in a Hospital



How about another option, in that the “Fukushima 50” do not care for fame and fortune.

The Japanese culture is far removed from the endless drab celebrity culture which rules the airwaves in the States. It is probable that these workers are just getting on with life and do not care to be dragged through the mire for our amusement.

If these incidents are not killing people in one form or another, then why would Germany and England close down their plants?

Sellafield to close as Japan cuts its nuclear facilities

Germany to shut all nuclear reactors

Without going into the articles themselves, I live pretty close to a nuclear power plant which has a good safety record. However, the cancer rate in the surrounding area is four times the national average.

One has to wonder if those fanatical supporters of nuclear energy would be happy to live in such an area. I know of not one person here who wishes a new nuclear plant to be built, the general concensus leans towards a tidal barrage (which in itself has it's downsides, but preferable to dying of cancer).

There are many nuclear power plants all over the world and yet they only provide 14 percent of the energy needed.
14 percent of energy with a great risk, a shutdown does not make it safe, only the fusion stops but it keeps emitting heat, so cooling is important in the first months after shutdown.
Much energy is wasted on advertising screens, city's are full with those things.



TEPCO said Aug. 1 that radiation levels of at least 10 sieverts per hour, or 10,000 millisieverts per hour, were found at piping connected to the main exhaust tower between the No. 1 and No. 2 reactors at the Fukushima plant.

Could this also have to do with simple geography and the prevailing winds? Compare land locked Chernobyl to coastal Fukushima. Much of the radiation from Fukushima was blown out to sea. Interesting nonetheless.

They are shutting one component of a big site at Sellafield in the NW of England. Another report I read stated that the plant cannot produce the right kind of fuel for modern designs. Britain is under fire because 2 months ago it approved plans for another 8 reactors to be built in the next 10 years or so. 3 are in the NW and one will be at Sellafield, the other two being at Heysham (already a nuke site) and Anglesey Island off Wales.
