It's hardly "breaking news" years on. But there was no "downgrade". In fact it has it's own dedicated forum.

The OP decided where to put the thread.

To some ( as is the case with current media environment exposures ) "breaking news" or not , the science and relation to humans is a multiple decades report; how does "breaking" news differ from "effects to ongoing everyday life for the next couple of decades" news differ?

edit: being the OP(of a displaced thread fragment), does not equal : master ( or even comprehensibly cogniscent mastery) of the subject matter, it just means the OP continued a thread after overload forced it's truncation.

if this was still a single thread it would be the all time winner for size, composition and most importantly;content....which on a site like this is just a tad more than epic ...

Purple Chive and everyone, the 2nd edition of NY state-certified nutritionist Sara Shannon's book Radiation Protective Foods was published November 6, 2014. It is available in hardcover, paperback, and e-book formats. It is the most authoritative book in or out of print on that subject:

Unit 2 SFP Temp...

Had not checked stats in a week. Got on today and really jumped out at me that Unit 2 SFP temp had risen to 25.2 Celsius.

It had been running around the 15 to 16 degree range.

Glad that Moch reported that on November 28 they had a cooling problem reported.

What is interesting...from Moch's rpt:

On 11/27/2014, coolant system of Reactor 2 pool suddenly stopped, according to Tepco.

Approx. 5 hours later, Tepco managed to reboot the system. Pool water temperature was 16.7 ℃ when it was stopped. Tepco reported it was 17.3 ℃ when the system was rebooted.

17.3 degrees....was four days ago when the system was it is at 25.2 degrees.

Hi folks. Im finally back online thanks to Paul Q. Sorry to have been gone so long but life has been hell these last couple of years. Im glad to see people still involved. Will stay in touch from here on out.

Greetings old friend zworld:

It has been brought up that there should be a book about Fukushima, based on what we have discussed here on ATS (and elsewhere).

How about a working title: The Fukushima Chronicles: The Last Nuclear Accident on Planet Earth

OK, OK, yes, we offered this before, so long ago it was in Part One of this legacy thread. lol

A collaborative writing effort to share the Truth and those who actively contribute share in any profits?

Or, which is OK with us… give it away as an Ebook.

We are open to any ideas and count us in.

BTW, our background is 40 years in print publishing, with a few national magazines that we had
a hand in launching as Publisher/Advertising/Marketing Director still on the national newsstands.

One in particular, launched in 1974, has gained international acclaim and is actively enjoyed by millions,
especially in decriminalized states.

Welcome back, Mr Z.

Glad to see you back Z!
I have been gone since the end of the 1st long thread.

When I left you were writing a book for quite a while...
what happened? I have checked in here very little to see
who was still here & you were one of the people I was looking
for, among many other major contributors.

Greetings old friend!

So glad to see you once more and am looking forward to further installments.

I may take a look once more myself and see what may be found.

Thank you my friends.

I just put together a lengthy post, and as soon as I hit the reply button it disappeared. Then I wrote a new post and couldn't get it to post. Everytime I try something happens and it is erased. This kind of stuff happens all the time now.

Mostly I said that I applaud everyone for keeping this thread alive. And the book idea is great but the book Im writing has morphed into one that deals with all the issues Ive been fighting since the 60s. Ill post the chapter on Fukushima soon. The book is in rewrite right now and should be done soon. Would love to get it published but even just posting it as an ebook is good.

As everyone knows I firmly believe more than ever before that there was a weapons factory under Fukushima, and the US was well aware and supportive of it. However, I have left this out of my book as it no longer matters the level of radioactivity we can expect from Fukushima. Just having those three cores loose underground is a nightmare that wont end for thousands of years as you all know.

Right now we are monitoring the ocean water in Trinidad which is ground zero for where the main ocean plume is heading. But damages have already been happening up and down the westcoast. Sealife is dying en masse. Starfish are literally dissolving in the water, and the US is turning its usual blind eye to it.

Thats why Im so glad that you all have kept the issues alive, and why Im glad to be back. Good on ya.

What a most unexpected and welcome surprise! Your return is great news! It was around the same time that AirCooled literally dropped out one day too and left us all wondering if you both were 'okay' - so glad to know that you are doing well and being productive and proactive with this disaster...

Re long posts - I learned to either do them in word and copy/paste them or 'copy' them regularly while typing them in the post box.

Most of the shrills and ignorant posters have flown away (thank goodness) - other than ATS having sold its soul to the almighty commercial dollar and now bombarded with sliders and popups everywhere, all remains pretty much the same... ;-)

You are probably aware of the laws passed in Japan making publishing Fukushima news punishable by jail time? It seems to have drastically reduced independent information coming out about it - we have to rely on little leaks and Tepco's infamous reports and PR videos which are enough to turn ones stomach over a few times.

Really looking forward to your posts, thanks!

Thanks wishes.

No, I wasn't aware of those laws. I knew that a doctor could be arrested for claiming an illness was radiation related, but not any news at all. The situation is becoming stranger and stranger all around the world. Eventually even forums will be no more if the PTB have their way.

I was being hounded by shills before dropping out of the net. Thanks to Qs encouraging words I have turned 180 degrees. I will never let those bastards have the last say again. These forums may be the last time we connect universally if the world keeps heading towards fascism. That has to be stopped.

Im not happy with the new ATS either. Boy has it changed.

Here is a fairly recent news compilation about Fukushima - what I found interesting is it said they abandoned the frozen water notion for cement(?) I must have missed that update...

But apparently even the cement didn't work....

Even cement couldn’t shut up the underground trench, Tepco reported on 11/27/2014. There are underground trenches connected to each crippled reactor building. Each one of them retains extremely highly contaminated water and it is assumed that the water is leaking to the ground and the sea. For example, the underground trench of Reactor 2 retains 5,000 t of contaminated water, the one of Reactor 3 retains 6,000 t as Tepco reports. In order to pump up the contaminated water, it is necessary to separate those trenches from the buildings. After they admitted the frozen water wall failed, Tepco tried to fill the underground trench with cement and grout. They completed filling one of the joint parts between the trench and Reactor 2 T/B (Turbine Building) on 11/6/2014 and pumped up the retained water of the trench on 11/17/2014. By pumping up the water for 6 hours, they managed to reduce the retained water level by 20cm. However the water level went back to the previous level only 2.5 hours after turning off the pump. Also, the water temperature jumped up to suggest the water coming from Reactor 2 T/B is heated by something. The largest increase in temperature was approx. 35℃ within 4 days (-27℃ → 8℃). It became clear that even if they fill the trench with cement, contaminated water, which contains the direct leakage of coolant water, would keep flowing into. The filling cement would make it even more difficult to pump up the water. At this moment Tepco is not announcing they are going to change the plan.

They will never be able to stop the bleeding of radionuclides into the environment. Never. There is nothing they can do except keep coming up with obscure ideas that waste time and money. they know it. We know it. Our government knows it. Northeastern Honshu is history. And of course the poor people of that area are guinea pigs.

Japan is in a world of trouble with Abe's victory. But the results are really more an indictment than approval as so few voted just like in our last elections.

If after all that has happened Japan jump starts its reactors as Abe has promised I see no hope for the Far East, especially in light of all the volcanic and potential volcanic activity in that area.

But the problem is coming home to roost. The radioactive and acidic northeast Pacific is literally dying right in front of our eyes. There is now almost no species that isn't showing signs of great stress or worse. Its getting hard to go down to the beach as there is now something floating ashore dead every day it seems.

Is it any wonder people have gone apathetic. Insane people are in charge of the worlds major powers and we are now seeing a rebirth of the cold war and buildup of nuke weapons. Its so hard to understand. Fukushima should have shown the world to never go nuclear again, and yet it's like it never happened.

If we can successfully shut down Diablo Canyon, it will still not amount to much as the plumes from Japan will pretty much wipe us out over here over time. Without the oceans we are all dead in the water (no pun intended).

And from the most recent Scripps monitoring shows those plumes heading beeline for my favorite place in all this world, Trinidad California. I dont know if any one has seen the mapping, but it looks to be still offshore, but coming soon to a beach near me. One big burp of nuclides.

Im still waiting for a friend to show up with our geiger counter so we can do more onshore monitoring.

In Trinidad we have a marine lab that is part of Humboldt State U. I have seen people from the lab on the beach testing kelp. One day they tested a long bulb and suddenly wrapped it up and ran with it back to the lab. No idea what it was about but Im assuming they found something hot.

Hopefully in a couple of days Ill have a report on current conditions.

And one last observation. Something that has been troubling me for awhile. The levels of tritium and strontium 90 have been off the hook coming from the wells at Fukushima, and getting worse, and Iodine 131 has been detected in sewage sludge from Chiba prefecture, the only place that it is being looked for. These all indicate that fission is still occurring somewhere in Fukushima.

Does anyone have any current information on these. I havent been staying on top of TEPCOs press releases anymore.

And concerning the danger of volcanoes throughout Japan, the ones near Fuku have been acting up and looking like potential eruptors. Don't know if this has been discussed here, but they are now sure that the earthquakes 50 miles from Fuku in the mountains are volcanic tremors and Japan is now warning people to stay away from the crater.

There are so many active or potentially active volcanoes near nuke plants in Japan that it really must be considered a probable occurrence for one to upset the apple cart.

Hey everybody. Its OK. The ex Chairman of the NRC has resigned because she has made nuclear energy safe now and we have nothing to worry about. I dont know about you but that sure makes me feel better.........NOT!!!

Talk about out of touch. What lessons did they learn from Good going Shirley.

In a statement released by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Chairman Macfarlane said,
“I came to the Commission with the mission of righting the ship after a tumultuous period for the Commission, and ensuring that the agency implemented lessons learned from the tragic accident at Fukushima Daiichi, so that the American people can be confident that such an accident will never take place here. With these key objectives accomplished, I am now returning to academia as Director of the Center for International Science and Technology Policy at George Washington University.
