The company added it was unlikely his cancer was a result of radiation exposure. They said that the condition usually takes five to 10 years to develop if radiation is to blame.

Just a matter of time, before we're scrambling ourselves i'd surmise.

how to stop 75k gallons of water daily from leaching into the pacific ....

So now, TEPCO has proposed literally creating a wall of ice around the plant.
And what they’re talking about is not a wall above ground, but freezing the
ground around the plant to stop water from flowing in

A further update on the latest leak:

After giving the leak of water at the crippled Fukushima plant a Level 1 rating, the Nuclear Regulation Authority raised that to Level 3 or "serious incident."


TOKYO — Japan's nuclear regulator on Wednesday upgraded the rating of a leak of radiation-contaminated water at its tsunami-wrecked nuclear plant to a "serious incident" on an international scale.

The Nuclear Regulation Authority originally gave a Level 1 rating — an "anomaly," to the Aug. 19 leak of 300 tons (80,000 gallons) of water from a tank at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. Last week it proposed raising that to Level 3 — a "serious incident" — and it made that change after consulting with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Related: Japan nuclear crisis at Fukushima 'deplorable'

The ratings are designed to inform the international community, and changing them does not affect efforts to clean up the leak by the government and plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. The 2011 Fukushima disaster itself was rated the maximum of 7 on the IAEA's International Nuclear and Radiological Events Scale, the same as the 1986 Chernobyl accident.

TEPCO has recovered some of the water that leaked from the tank but says some of it may have reached the sea through a rainwater gutter. TEPCO has built hundreds of tanks to hold radioactive water, some of which is ground water that made its way to the plant, but hundreds more tons of contaminated water are believed to be entering the sea each day.

The plant suffered triple meltdowns after the massive earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. TEPCO is spraying tons of water into its reactors to cool them and is struggling to contain the resulting waste water.

Japan's industry minister said this week that the government will take over cleanup efforts.

Kan, Tepco execs won’t face negligence charges

Prosecutors do not plan to indict former Prime Minister Naoto Kan and executives of Tokyo Electric Power Co. over the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear meltdown calamity that started on March 11, 2011, investigative sources said Friday.

2,200 millisieverts reading outside the plant today.

Enough to kill an unprotected person in a few hours.


Bastards.

per ukindependent . A major nuclear incident was narrowly averted
at the heart of Britain's Royal Navy submarine fleet
.
we humans can fuck up a one car funerals
although in this case things were averted
so there were no funerals to fuck up, good deal

Sam Masters for the UK Independent wrote:The failure of the electric-power source for coolant to nuclear reactors and then the diesel back-up generators was revealed in a heavily redacted report from the Ministry of Defence's Site Event Report Committee (Serc).


More than a year after the incident and the most that's revealed is a 'heavily redacted report'. I believe the British government's on board, with the american government to keep all radiation leaks a secret no matter what.

finally some good news .

The testes and sperm count of bulls abandoned in the evacuation zone
around the battered Fukushima nuclear plant were not affected by chronic
exposure to radiation, according to a Japanese academic study

lol, six men were doused with contaminated water at a desalination facility.
The men, who were wearing protective clothing, suffered no ill health effects
in the incident, according to Tepco

-Tokyo Governor Shintaro Ishihara has appealed to Tokyo's 13-million residents to remain calm after elevated levels of radioactive iodine were detected Wednesday in the city's water supply. The appeal came as officials suspended work at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant 250 kilometers north of the capital. Dark smoke began rising late in the afternoon from the plant's number 3 reactor, forcing officials to evacuate crews who are struggling to restore power to the plant's crucial cooling systems. Officials said they have not yet determined the cause of the smoke, which had eased but not stopped by early evening. There was no reported spike in radiation levels.

In Tokyo, officials announced they have detected radioactive iodine at one of the city's main water treatment plants at levels that are within acceptable levels for adults but more than twice the acceptable level for infants. They urged parents not to use the water to mix formula for children under one year old.-

Gaius Publius: Japanese Mafia Feared in Charge of Fukushima Cleanup

Yves here. This post by Gaius not only reports on the latest rumors surrounding the Fukushima clean up (such as it is) but also the huge danger the site poses to Japan and the US if it is not stabilized.

Like most things in Japan, if the yakuza really are in charge of the remediation, it may not be what it seems. Cynically, Tepco has done such a terrible job that it’s hard to see how anyone could do worse. But the status of the yakuza is not exactly the same as the mafia. Those who are current please correct me if my information is stale but the yakuza aren’t so much a crime organization as an officially sanctioned group in charge of illegal rackets. That may sound like a distinction that is not a difference, but it actually is different. The yakuza have a deal with the police. They were allowed to run prostitution and gambling rings (I’m not sure exactly what other gigs they run, for instance, whether they provide “protectionâ€￾ services at docks) but the quid pro quo was that they keep hard drugs out of Japan. They were allowed to take any measures necessary to stamp out competing crime groups that tried to bring drugs to Japan. So the yakuza are a crime franchise.

zerohedge.com . reads like the left coast might could be in serious deep shit, if ..

“Did you ever play pick up sticks?â€￾ asked a foreign nuclear expert who has
been monitoring Tepco’s efforts to regain control of the plant. “You had 50
sticks, you heaved them into the air and than had to take one off the pile at
a time.

“If the pile collapsed when you were picking up a stick, you lost,â€￾ he said.
“There are 1,534 pick-up sticks in a jumble in top of an unsteady reactor 4
What do you think can happen ...

The Washington Post had a story on this yesterday and made the entire project sound like a piece of cake=) They're not even trying for the 'lumps' until at least 2020. Shame their fore and hindsight aren't closely similar.

no need to worry about what's happening in Japan….

just check this out: http://tv.greenmedinfo.com/every-nuclea ... xplosions/


Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinityâ€￾ test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear). - See more at: http://tv.greenmedinfo.com/every-nuclea ... zI2af.dpuf
