And in the United States, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has just opened a discussion on switching from the LNT model to the hormesis model: www.youtube.com...

US independent academic epidemiologist Steve Wing, PhD, has previously described the hormesis model as being "without foundation."

Thats a pretty big jump. You'd think with the radiation levels increasing, not just the above cesium but everything theyve been monitoring, someone somewhere in an authoritative position in Japan would admit the obvious, the Daiichi is out of control and in need of outside assistance ASAP.

I think theyve had a fair amount of rain recently. Im going to check how much. If it is being caused by heavy rain, then that contamination is coming from a rising groundwater level Id bet.

ON EDIT: and to add insult to injury TEPCO just posted its highest profit margin ever. That is so unbelievable. Theyre cutting corners everywhere while making more money than ever before.

This world is so messed up.

How come we haven't seen much about switching to Liquid Flouride Thorium Reactors?
I thought this was pretty interesting....

NVM RinkinVA just answered that question in the link provided above...

www.fukuleaks.org...


Another myth is that thorium reactors can run at atmospheric temperatures, in order to produce power they must be run differently and would not be at atmospheric temperatures.

Many of the thorium reactors use liquid sodium fluoride in the reactor process. This material is highly toxic and has its own series of risks.

The creation of thorium fuels is also not safer than creating uranium fuels. Thorium poses the same nuclear waste and toxic substance problems found in mining and fuel milling of uranium.

Highest Recorded Radioactive City in America This month

Congrats to Billings, Montana.
Billings is once again the Highest Recorded Radiation City in the United States this month with 869 CPM!

Bakersfield, California again trails Billings with 855 CPM. Bakersfield and Billings have quite a deadly competition going for the most active Rad Weather.

The difference between Billings’ and Bakersfield’s Rad numbers is only 14 CPM points out of a reported Rad count of 1,724 Rad CPMs. That is such a small amount of Rad difference, less than One Percent of the total reported Rad.

did not see anything in the messages about archive picture data migration ....so where did my avatar pic go, and if it went did all of ( the pics in ats storage go , for perhaps only certain individuals) them? ...mods ?

I am not surprised.

perhaps these are not fuku related posts ( I really, really hope ) but WTF is ats at the end of the day when avatar pics are "lost" (at very interesting times I may add )..I assume if this basic image was " missed " , the posts from the first thread are now picture barren also ?

When SO 'upgrades' the infrastructure, sometimes things go awry.

Just look at my early-days formatting on FUKUGATE. lol

My avatar got 'lost' too; merely reloaded a fresh copy.

And, BTW, any 'outside' links to photos no longer work.

Considering that Fukushima has released more radiation than 528 air detonation nuclear tests combined, and remembering that radiation from those tests is still affecting people around the globe to this day, the problems caused by Fukushima are going to be with us for generations.

There are 437 operative nuclear power plants world wide, and another 68 under construction. A dozen more are at the planning stage. Are we really so hungry for electricity that we are willing to risk annihilation to get it?

What’s the point if generation after generation will suffer increased cancer rates?

You can’t blame nuclear because it would hurt their feelings.
They want to keep up the PR spin that no deaths and no diseases are caused by them.
You are blowing that PR out the window…

At 1:30 GMT on Tuesday the human race is going to show how stupid it can really be.

Japan to restart nuclear power program after 2-year shutdown

Japan will begin restarting its nuclear power program on Tuesday, after a two-year hiatus following the Fukushima crisis, AFP said. The reactor No. 1 at the Sendai nuclear plant, nearly 1,000km southwest of Tokyo, has been loaded with atomic fuel, and the reactor would be switched on by 01:30 GMT on Tuesday. Japan has adopted tougher safety rules to avoid a repeat of Fukushima, including more backup prevention measures and higher tsunami-blocking walls.

ON EDIT:
Go figure. This has been the longest and hottest heatwave in Japan and yet they amount of power used has never been even close to the point that they declare a shortage. This being done with no nuclear power. There is no reason to start up a nuke plant. From the Diary

fukushima-diary.com...

According to Tepco, the ratio of power consumption and supply stays only 83.9% this summer, which is without nuclear power.
This is the average of maximum ratio from July to 8/9/2015 in Tepco’s area.
It is considered to be power shortage if the ratio goes over 97%. In reality, the ratio remained less than 89% in 30 days out of these 40 days. Even the highest rate was only 93% (7/14/2015).
METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry)  forecast in April that the ratio would be 89~91% this summer.
The actual ratio was lower than their forecast.
From the end of this July, the highest temperature went over 35℃ for continuous 8 days, which was the first time in recorded history.
Federation of Electric Power Companies suspended announcing the ratio of entire Japan to state they cannot properly receive data at this moment for some reason.

Well yes but ....

1,612 days is more than enough time to buy off the political masters.

In fact, the limits on the not so 'free' press is testament to the ability of the Nuclear Industry to decide on new laws.

I have said it a few times in this thread. It WILL take yet another accident before the people of the world will learn. Right now, most people on this planet have simply forgotten about this. They do not care.

Those of us that do care are a vocal minority.

Z, they must restart the reactors. Using fossil fuels to generate their power has seriously eroded their operational budgets.

Once the nuke reactor goes online, it's "free hot water" for everyone!!!!

I think there are masses of people who care, but dont have a voice to express their concerns and feel powerless. People want change, demand change, but as Obama showed us, electing someone who says the right things doesnt mean they will do the right things. We need leaders who are for real that will give a voice to the future. Real hope, real change, not illusions done with mirrors.

And I think that day is coming, but whether its coming fast enough is the question. If not then nature is going to turn us upside down and nuke the world with many accidents here there and everywhere.

Volcano alert issued near Japan’s restarted nuclear power plant

Japan has warned that the Sakurajima volcano, located 50 km from the just-restarted Sendai nuclear power plant, is showing signs of increased activity. The volcano, located on the southern Kyushu Island, is one of the most active in Japan, but a larger-than-usual eruption may come, the country’s Meteorological Agency said. Roughly 100 people living near the mountain’s base were told to be prepared for evacuation. The Sendai plant was brought online on Tuesday after a long delay after safety overhaul prompted by the Fukushima disaster.
