Highest radiation levels measured outside reactor



Tokyo Electric Power Company says radiation levels are extremely high in an area near a ventilation pipe at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.



The estimated radiation level is the highest ever detected outside reactor buildings. People exposed to this level of radiation would die within 20 minutes.

Got to love the last line. "May still contain radioactive substances". Anyone that thinks this is not going to have a planet wide effect is an idiot. Not to worry though as it will never be proved why the cancer rates went through the roof......

If this is what they admit to...... BTW just saw an article yesterday confirming increased radiation in the Pacific is nearing the West Coast. This is slowing going mainstream, that alone should be a sign that not much can be hidden much longer.

Link to story - May have to hit refresh to play video


ABC 7 News, Dec. 3, 2013: Marin County will begin monitoring a radioactive plume that may be drifting toward the West Coast. That plume is from the crippled Fuksuhima nuclear plant [...] Two Marin County supervisors have directed the county’s Public Health, Safety and Coastal staff to track this. Experts say they don’t know when contaminated ocean water might reach the West Coast and there is no threat now — Apparently. There is concern because of the importance of the ocean, obviously, to our food supply. Radioactive water leaking from the reactor is being kept in storage bins, but experts say it will eventually be released into the sea and they want to monitor it to make sure that at the very least if it comes this way they know about it.

Slightly off-topic, but Google Maps now has 'driven' around the area of Fukushima Prefecture and you can do a virtual drive though and get within a few 100 feet of the nuke plant. Hopefully they retired this particular car afterwards, the contamination of it must have been epic.

It's shocking how normal it all looks as far as the greenery but the houses are almost completely cleaned up, scraped by bulldozers right down to their foundations. A few are still standing, the first floors washed away and skeletal, the second floors with windows gone. There's random piles of debris everywhere, along with abandoned cars. The ghost town effect is chilling. The roads are still barely passable and have numerous cracks in them from the earthquakes; weeds are growing up inside the cracks now.

For those who have never done it, go to Google Maps, type in the location you want pretty much anywhere in the world; if they've 'driven' their remote controlled car in that vicinity the map will have a 'little yellow guy' icon on the top of the +/- zoom feature. Left click on him and drag him to wherever the blue lines appear and you can virtually drive down the road and take in the sights.

It's cheap travel (and research) without the hotel costs, long distance flights and Montezuma's revenge...

Why in the heck are they going to release it to into the ocean? Isn't this what they're trying to avoid happening? We're all snookered. This is outrageous.

Wondering the same thing there Stout.

It's messed up!

Radiation level in Fukushima observation well reportedly 36,000 times higher than normal

DEC 03, 2013


According to plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), strontium-90 and other radioactive substances that emit beta rays were detected at a level of 1.1 million becquerels per liter in underground water pumped up from an observatory well on Nov. 28. The well is located at a sea bank east of the No. 2 reactor, about 40 meters from the ocean.

The amount of detected radioactive materials hit the highest level since Nov. 25, which marked 910,000 becquerels per liter of underground water. The national allowable emission level for strontium-90, a typical radioactive isotope that emits beta rays, is less than 30 becquerels per liter of water.


mainichi.jp...




Study finds giant strontium-90 release into body of water begins around 1,000 days after meltdown — Dec. 5, 2013 = thousand days after 3/11 — Graphic shows very high levels being discharged for up to 50,000 days

Yes, This is truly a global tragedy.
They cant fix it , so they pass bills to hide it.

Clearly there is NOT an International Effort to address this issue.

Then again, maybe there very well is.

Either Way, the response of silence rings loud and clear.

S&F to you
