Top Threat to Humanity: Fukushima Reactor 4

Fukushima Reactor 4: Life On Planet Earth in the Balance « Truth11

Quote:
Matsumura posted a startling entry on his blog following a statement made by Japan’s former ambassador to Switzerland, Mitsuhei Murata, on the situation at Fukushima.

Speaking at a public hearing of the Budgetary Committee of the House of Councilors on March 22, 2012, Murata warned that “if the crippled building of reactor unit 4 – with 1,535 fuel rods in the spent fuel pool 100 feet (30 meters) above the ground – collapses, not only will it cause a shutdown of all six reactors but will also affect the common spent fuel pool containing 6,375 fuel rods, located some 50 meters from reactor 4,” writes Matsumura.

In both cases the radioactive rods are not protected by a containment vessel; dangerously, they are open to the air. This would certainly cause a global catastrophe like we have never before experienced. He stressed that the responsibility of Japan to the rest of the world is immeasurable. Such a catastrophe would affect us all for centuries. Ambassador Murata informed us that the total numbers of the spent fuel rods at the Fukushima Daiichi site excluding the rods in the pressure vessel is 11,421.

Matsumura then asked Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy, about the the impact of such an additional catastrophe at Fukushima.

Containing radiation at the crippled facility will be not small feat, Alvarez explained. “Spent reactor fuel cannot be simply lifted into the air by a crane as if it were routine cargo. In order to prevent severe radiation exposures, fires and possible explosions, it must be transferred at all times in water and heavily shielded structures into dry casks,” Alvarez told Matsumura.

He then said the 11,138 spent fuel assemblies stored at the Fukushima plant contain “134 million curies is Cesium-137 — roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection.”

“It is important for the public to understand that reactors that have been operating for decades, such as those at the Fukushima-Dai-Ichi site have generated some of the largest concentrations of radioactivity on the planet,” he concluded.

Matsumura admits this is an astounding number and one difficult to comprehend. He wrote that 85 times more Cesium-137 than released at Chernobyl “would destroy the world environment and our civilization. This is not rocket science, nor does it connect to the pugilistic debate over nuclear power plants. This is an issue of human survival.”

Akio Matsumura sent a letter United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. “It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on NO.4 reactor. This is confirmed by most reliable experts like Dr. Arnie Gundersen or Dr. Fumiaki Koide,” he wrote to Ki-Moon. “The world has been made so fragile and vulnerable. .... I wish you the best of luck in your noble mission.”

Yeah this is some serious shit.

One little tremor there...

I read somewhere that Japan might have been using the site to make nuclear weapons because you typically don't find that much plutonium otherwise. I'm not an expert and would be interested to hear more

Which is why they have been begging for help from us and the UN and estimate it will take at least ten years to move all those rods...because they have it entirely undercontrol by virtue of having been nuked twice already in the past.


Did I leave something out?

Alaska, Westgern Canada, the West Coast areas are the ones most vulnerable due to wind and ocean currents, as I understand it.

Dont know about Hawai.

Thank you GE for those marvelous reactors that you took shortcuts on with safety features so bad that the top four engineers on the design resigned in protest.

May you be sued into extinction.

utter and total bullshit, unless of course, there is some magical method of divinding such radiation equally among ever person on the planet, and then applying said dose in one shot, simultaneously.

Bilge. What does it mean for reactor #4 to "affect" the common pool? Virtually nothing. It certainly doesn't mean that all the fuel in the spent fuel rods will be released into the air. Even if all the water drained out of the pool, that isn't likely to happen. This is spent fuel. Most of it is at room temperature. the chances of it vaporizing are virtually nil. This is just anti-nuke hysteria.

WHO: Slight cancer risk after Japan nuke accident
28 Feb.`13 — Two years after Japan's nuclear plant disaster, an international team of experts said Thursday that residents of areas hit by the highest doses of radiation face an increased cancer risk so small it probably won't be detectable.
Quote:
In fact, experts calculated that increase at about 1 extra percentage point added to a Japanese infant's lifetime cancer risk. "The additional risk is quite small and will probably be hidden by the noise of other (cancer) risks like people's lifestyle choices and statistical fluctuations," said Richard Wakeford of the University of Manchester, one of the authors of the report. "It's more important not to start smoking than having been in Fukushima."

The report was issued by the World Health Organization, which asked scientists to study the health effects of the disaster in Fukushima, a rural farming region. On March 11, 2011, an earthquake and tsunami knocked out the Fukushima plant's power and cooling systems, causing meltdowns in three reactors and spewing radiation into the surrounding air, soil and water. The most exposed populations were directly under the plumes of radiation in the most affected communities in Fukushima, which is about 150 miles (240 kilometers) north of Tokyo.

In the report, the highest increases in risk are for people exposed as babies to radiation in the most heavily affected areas. Normally in Japan, the lifetime risk of developing cancer of an organ is about 41 percent for men and 29 percent for women. The new report said that for infants in the most heavily exposed areas, the radiation from Fukushima would add about 1 percentage point to those numbers.

Experts had been particularly worried about a spike in thyroid cancer, since radioactive iodine released in nuclear accidents is absorbed by the thyroid, especially in children. After the Chernobyl disaster, about 6,000 children exposed to radiation later developed thyroid cancer because many drank contaminated milk after the accident. In Japan, dairy radiation levels were closely monitored, but children are not big milk drinkers there.

Yeah, who knows what is really going on, the elites have censored this news and data. Latest updates available are from 2011.

Well, I didn't let my kid play outside in the winter after it happened, and I live in the Great Lakes region. I had to watch the JetStream and every which way it dipped. I was well aware that the media was lying to us about the severity, but only because I searched YouTube videos and found scientists in my area that were posting actual video of the radiation levels via Geiger counter readings of the snow that was on the ground.

The radiation levels seemed to have slacked off for now, but the containment pools around reactor 4 are in a very dicey state. They are really hot, and it is way worse than Chernobyl. They are having a hard time stabilizing the situation from what I can ascertain. Right now it seems to be a race against time, versus the amount of money, man power and technological prowess that can be brought to bear on the problem. Currently, from reports that can be trusted, it seems that any quake whose epicenter is near or at the location of the plant that is a 6.5 or higher would make all of Japan uninhabitable and would also make the West Coast and Alaska have sky rocketing Cancer rates. Nothing has been stated about Hawaii.

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/05/senator-fukushima-fuel-pool-is-a-national-security-issue-for-america.html

It is a very difficult topic to find honest information on for two reasons. First, they don't want people to panic, there are going to be deaths, and there is going to be a correspondingly large amount of increasing cases of cancer. I know many who have come down with cancer in the past two years, what about you? The second reason is the amount of energy that Nuclear power generates. If the public perceives Nuclear power too negatively, then they will not support forth or fifth generation nuclear power facilities. For some reason (Big Oil) this has not been funded. America's power grid is antiquated compared to India's, Europa's and China's. From what little I understand, Thorium reactors have almost none of these risks involved.
