There is more bad news from the stricken Fukushima nuclear site in Japan, where a probe of the only one of the three destroyed reactors where access is possible revealed still-deadly levels of radiation. Experts say the two others could be in even worse shape.

In the second such interior assessment since the disaster over a year ago detectors in reactor number two showed damage so severe special technology will need to be developed just to survive the harsh environment. Cleaning up is going to take decades.

Water levels inside the containment vessel that houses the radioactive core were also found to be way too low, despite continual pumping, although the water temperature indicates the fuel has been cooled.

Detected radiation levels of 70 seiverts an hour will kill a human after seven minutes of exposure, and are 10 times higher than experts had been hoping. Levels are even higher in reactors one and three.

More bad news from Japan, damage so bad that new technology will have to be developed to just survive the harsh environment!! They don't even have the technology to clean up this mess and this will most likely go on for decades now. Still think nuclear power is worth it?

UPDATE:

Still critical: radiation levels at Fukushima can kill in minutes

Latest readings from tsunami-stricken nuclear plant overturn claims that reactors have been made safe

A lethal level of radiation has been detected inside one of the reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, throwing fresh doubts over the operator's claims that the disabled complex is under control.

Engineers for Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) say readings of airborne radiation inside the containment vessel of Reactor 2 showed nearly 73 sieverts per hour this week, the highest since the crisis began following the earthquake and tsunami on 11 March last year. Exposure to radiation at that level is deadly within minutes, according to Japan's public broadcaster, NHK.

Dude, you only linked threads that you started. If any thread needs linking it's this one.

One of the biggest, detailed and most current threads on the nuclear crisis in Japan. It's a great read if you can handle the 1200+ pages.

This is an absolute disaster. And sadly, countless masses of sleeping humans continue to turn a blind eye to these events, and live there lives as if it has not arrived on their front porch.

With that, we are due for more.




How much cataclysm must we go through before we ALL want to change?

The video is recent and I haven't seen it posted. Just trying to share info if you don't like it don't post, I'm not aware of every single post on ATS, I'm aware of the the articles I've posted and they don't come from me they come from all kind of news outlets so just showing people where this news is on this topic, if you don't want to read then good day.

Sorry, man. I didn't mean to spit venom with my post. Just letting you and others know of the thread. There are some really great posters on it with daily updates. My apologies if my post came out acidic.

Latest Fukushima probe appalls experts

The experts in this aren't looking too 'experty' are they?
Any one of us here at ATS could have told them that this thing isn't over, not by a long shot.

No worries, it seems every time I link an article there's jokers and attacker's when all anyone on here is doing is sharing a link but for some crazy reason everyone see's it as you authored it and goes on the attack. This site has very little useful conversation anymore. I do appreciate your post as you are adding to the information on this topic. Thanks, Peace

Thanks for the reply.

I believe new Fukushima threads should definately be made when new information is made available like this, so I appriciate your OP. It's nice that ATS doesn't bury this story like our MSM friends do. Take care.

No matter who the youngest person who reads my post, mark these words:

Fukushima will not be 'over' at any time for the rest of our entire lives.

Perhaps in our grandchildren's era, the radiation readings will begin to show lower levels such as those prior to the disaster.
But any time in the next 50-100 years? I seriously doubt it.

If an expert told you that, you could call him/her "honest".

I have no idea, try contacting the person that wrote the article or a radioactive half-life specialist.
