Grainy film off of India news. 27 seconds to 1:05 is #4 blowing.


The Video from India is not the Explosion of Nr. 4
but of Nr.1 , it is just Mirror-Inverted!

Edit: And Nr.4 went never dry, this was just a misunderstanding
between the US and Japan, need to read the Investigation Report
one more Time because the Story was debunked alread 2 years ago!

If you scroll about halfway down this PDF you'll see they have been sampling the ocean everywhere between Japan and the west coast of North America. Yet we get no information?

A 5.3 - 5.8 quake depending on which site you visit, today. Please note the heaviest steam is between the turbine buildings and the outer harbour wall, in this pic.
Wish I could get some zoomed pics up but maybe next week.

Here it's a 5.8 felt in Tokyo.

A confession that there were 2-3 explosions in #4, back in March 011.
Of course no details of what could explode in the SW corner [Near the elevator shaft, remember?] in #4, or which floor they originated on? 1st floor?... Lower, maybe?

I don't know what to make of this one?
A train derails in England. It is said to be carrying "empty casks" ... from Japan [13 seconds into the vid] to Sellafield. People are told to stay inside. Why if they're empty?

Maybe the empty casks get sent and then filled up at Sellafield, then returned to japan? Or.. as you say, maybe they are not empty. Either way, Japan are still dealing in nuclear fuel in spite of officially only having one nuke plant operating in the country.

I think they would have plenty of 'spare' fuel rods to be spread around if any other Japanese nuke plant needed them. In fact, they have a whole country's worth of spare and partially used fuel rods spare.

Sounds to me as if in the midst of an ongoing Nuclear Emergency they still have only one thing on their minds, MONEY.

Obviously empty casks should not be dangerous unless they have been used before and emptied but that does not make a lot of sense to me, ie, what happened to the previous contents.

Money is of course the driving factor behind everything that the Toxic Effluence Production Company does! Which is probably why there are still elements of Fukushima which show as "assets" on their books! I don't believe anything at Fukushima is an asset to them or anybody living on this planet! But their (TEPCO's) heads are so high up their behinds I am suprised that they can breath! They are morally and financially bankrupt despite what Human0815 and the other deniers have to say!

I think, no, I am absolutely certain that either Tepco or the Japanese Government know the breadth of talent on ATS. Just reading the old thread would tell them that. They are bound to have their people on here trying (uselessly I might add) to change opinions in their favor. Additionally there are always a few who do not want to admit the sheer magnitude of the danger.

Personally, I just ignore the sheep and the paid shills. It is an exercise in futility to argue with someone who is paid to disrupt the information flow. Just one big waste of time. I have better things to do. Their points of view are so blatantly wrong that they give themselves away.

EDITORIAL: Abe should confront the reality of Fukushima radiation leaks

In the wee hours of Sept. 20, a strong earthquake measuring a 5-plus on the Japanese seismic scale struck Fukushima Prefecture. Its epicenter was in the Hamadori area in the eastern part of the prefecture, where the wrecked Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant is located.

Even though it caused no damage to the some 1,000 storage tanks within the plant that are filled with radioactive water, the quake must have given many people a chill. On the previous day, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the crippled plant and reiterated his view about the effects of contaminated water, saying they had been “completely blocked” within a certain range.

But he is overoptimistic if he really believes what he said about the problem. He needs to appreciate the seriousness of the situation and make an all-out effort to prevent unforeseen disasters like massive leaks of contaminated water.

Symbolical of Abe’s unwarranted optimism about what is going on at the plant is his claim that the situation is “under control.” He made the remark earlier this month in his presentation at a session of the International Olympics Committee, which helped Tokyo to be chosen as the host city for the 2020 Summer Games.

After his statement was reported around the world, however, a senior executive of Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), the operator of the Fukushima plant, rebutted his argument, saying the situation was not under control.

During the International Atomic Energy Agency’s annual general conference meeting held on Sept. 16-20 in Vienna, representatives of many countries raised questions about Abe’s statement. China, for instance, voiced strong concerns about how things stand at the Fukushima complex.

Mindful of the international perceptions, Ichita Yamamoto, minister of science and technology policy, didn’t use the phrase “under control” in his official speech at the IAEA meeting. We are not demanding that the prime minister describe the situation with complete accuracy.

We are concerned that he may be confusing the goal with the reality. Efforts are certainly under way to put the radiation crisis “under control” and “completely block” the effects of polluted water.

But that doesn’t mean the situation is actually “under control” or that the effects are “completely blocked.”

Five loose bolts discovered on the bottom of a storage tank are believed to be the cause of the leak of 300 tons of radioactive water at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Sept. 20.

TEPCO is currently disassembling the leaky storage tank to inspect its interior. The plant operator said the loose bolts were from bottom panels near the eastern edge of the storage tank.

The bolts are designed to be fastened to set an impermeable rubber seal that blocks an opening along a juncture of steel panels. A loose bolt can leave such an opening unblocked.

"The leak likely took place there, but we will study the matter further," said Masayuki Ono, acting general manager of TEPCO's Nuclear Power and Plant Siting Division.

In contrast, the north branch will arrive at the American west coast and then migrate to the Bering Sea. At 200 m water depth, part of the nuclear materials will move southwestward along with deep ocean circulation, which could potentially reach the east coast of Taiwan. The other part will move to the west coast of America and separate into two branches. One will move northward along the west coast of Alaska, while the other will travel southward to the Hawaiian Islands." xico-negatively-affect-human-life-decades-raise-concern-model

When will they talk about where all the leaking water was going for 10 months, until tepco started the tank farm?

Harper will Frack the crap out of Canada to help Abe out. The US too.

Everyone in the nuclear mafia and all government reps should be forced by law to go to fukushima.
"After visiting the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power plant, Jeff Forbes, the Chief Nuclear Officer of Entergy, reflects on the day and what it means for the global nuclear energy industry."

“Steam” is repeatedly observed coming up from the top of reactor3.
This July Tepco suggested it may be the Nitrogen gas injected to reactor3. (cf, [Steaming reactor3] Tepco “The steam may be from the inside of the reactor, a certain volume of N2 gas is missing”
About reactor1 and 2, Tepco stated 11 m3/h of Nitrogen gas is also discharged from the reactors in the press conference of 9/18 and 9/20/2013.
It’s 9 m3/h from reactor1 and 2 m3/h from reactor2 at the moment of this September. It means Tepco injects Nitrogen gas into reactor1 and 2 but the output of Nitrogen gas is less than input by 11 m3/h in total.
Maybe it's another cigarette fire started by rats? lol

I tried uploading some pics. No luck still.

on another note Fukushima continues it's multi decade encroachment of our world.

PurpleChive, apparently at a recent press conference, Arnie Gundersen asked about the status of the #4 reactor fuel pool and the reply was that #4 fuel pool is empty. Is this true?

Maybe you can elaborate on this thought. I have seen others say, "well there was much more radiation forced onto the planet by the bomb testing." I do not understand this at all. The bomb testing is some kind of baseline? Did those who tested the bombs say something like, "humans can take xxx radioactive iodine before the DNA collapses? To me the bomb testing was an abomination too, are you saying because they were scientists doing the testing it was all good? You are familiar with all the cancer in Utah due to the bomb testing? Is that okay too?

This kind of logic mystifies me, as there is none. You might as well be saying, 'lotsa people died in wars too you know." It is the infant mind that sees things like this, or a shill who can't find a real argument to use here.

Stop trying to say it isn't a problem because there were worse problems, or there might be worse problems to come. what kind if moral center is that? In fact, your argument makes things worse for yourself, you defend fukashima by defending the hideous nature of the past which tells the smart people - good god, we might be reaching a tipping point when you add it all up.

I would ask you to find an entire line of argument that is NOT, not, "there were other worse problems in the past" as your base as it is not only the logic of a child, it isn't even an acceptable argument anyway.

You defend the indefensible. Even the low lives at TEPCO do not defend this, the hide the information, but they do not defend this. You are on the ledge by yourself here, especially when the ledge you are standing on uses the theme of "not so bad" as its foundation. It is bad, as it is unstoppable. You tell me why and how it can be stopped. Until then, you need to find a better argument, or drink some fuka tap water and prove it is save.

I can do what ever i want and i thought it is important to see
the Accident of Fukushima in Context with other massive Releases
of nuclear Isotopes!

Many People, like you, feeding the imagination that we here in Japan
are glowing or that our Earth is lost and this sucks,
i am tired of such a Bs. on and on!

Why do you avoid to face Reality so much?
Why do you can't even accept someone like me who is the same
like anyone else here?
Why are the People so ignorant to use the Shill Word without even
know the Basics of the manipulation of Opinions in Social Media?

Your Ignorance and your Arrogance want to make me vomit and you should
avoid this because it is smelly like hell

I even wrote that it is for Iodine-131 only but all of you react like tiny
lap-Dogs with Rabies!

Arrrrrgh, i am so damned tired of the Dogma and Narcissism
from the Anti-Nuclear Complex, you are worse, much worse
than Tepco and your feeding of Hoax-Stories is the real Catastrophe!

After Chernobyl we had more than 50.000 Abortions in the West alone
because of Fear, Hoax Stories and real Propaganda,
i hoped that this do not repeat because of F'Shima
but with People like you this will be impossible!

Retired VP and General Manager of GE Nuclear Energy, Bertram Wolf, reports that there were "some 40 deaths in the due to nuclear radiation from the (Chernobyl) accident. But there were some 50,000 baby deaths in Europe due to abortions where mothers who feared the effects of the radiation, from Chernobyl." And "Clearly, the people in Europe were not informed of the negligible (maybe healthy) effects of low radiation levels."


People like you are Responsible for this, you are guilty as the People from Tepco!

How Obama Made Fukushima Worse

The Obama administration’s failure to alert Americans to the danger of Fukushima radiation is motivated by corporate politics and the interests of the nuclear power industry.

The March 11, 2011 earthquake off the northwest coast of Japan wrecked a complex of nuclear power plants, throwing three units into meltdown and exploding high-level radionuclides into the environment. With the industry’s reputation and billions of dollars in financial arrangements hanging in the fire, the president chose expediency, saying there’s no threat to Americans.

These assurances were highlighted recently when Fukushima Dai-ichi’s operators reported that since the earthquake it has been spilling large amounts of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. While great efforts have been made to sequester hot water in tank farms, the tanks are leaking and the buildings are insecure. Among the toxics soaking coastal zone soils are fission products: cesium-134 and 137, strontium-90, iodine-131 and 129, along with various isotopes of tritium, uranium and plutonium.

These elements and hundreds of others have escaped containment and are moving into the North Pacific at the rate that varies from 300-900 tons of water per day. Following the president’s lead, most of the media has ignored the story, leaving many Americans in the dark. But the blinders are off in Alaska and the west coast of North America as more people figure the implications of tainted seafood. Pacific tuna ranges between California and Japan on its annual migration.

Sampled by scientists from Stanford University in 2012 and 2013, tuna were found with elevated cesium-134 and 137 in their muscle tissue. A public health official in British Columbia is urging the federal government to monitor salmon and tuna. Last week the state of Washington said it will begin testing salmon and steelhead. The newspaper in Alaska’s capital, Juneau, is asking science to settle the question, writing “…Let’s be 100 percent sure our Alaska salmon are safe to eat.”

NATIONAL Fukushima fisheries to resume trial fishing after samples prove safe

FUKUSHIMA – Fishing operations off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture were set to resume Wednesday, about a month after leaks of contaminated water at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant forced trial operations to be put on hold.

The Fukushima Prefectural Federation of Fisheries Cooperative Associations said Tuesday that “through tests we know the radioactive levels of the fish are not an issue and that they are safe.” Out of 100 fish and seafood products tested, 95 were clear of radioactive substances and the remaining five contained less than one-tenth of the government’s limit of 100 becquerels for food products, the fishing co-op said.

Operations were to resume at around 2 a.m., starting with the Soma Futaba fisheries cooperative covering the northern part of the prefecture. According to the cooperative, the catch will be put on sale as early as Thursday, with part of it to be distributed outside of Fukushima.

Pretty deceitful post.

On one hand I think it illustrates quite nicely why we have seen the increase of so many diseases and cancers over the last few decades here in the Midwest, and why they don't seem to urgently address them. Generational sickness that will eventually diminish.

On the other hand the release at Fukushima is on going and spreading longer half life elements.

I will clue you in on a future headline. Fukushima release much greater than originally reported. Oh wait, how many of those have we seen already?

I have a simple reason for not liking nuclear energy. If you can not store and dispose of the waste in manner that is safe you are looking in the wrong place. And by safe I mean, if a person happens upon it a hundred years from now it would not harm them. Better storage vessels are not the answer. I find any alternative to be quite insane.
