Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

TEPCO Continues to Contaminate the World

Posted by feww on October 3, 2013

What would it take for the Asian countries most at risk from Fukushima nuclear disaster to team up and declare the Japaneses government ‘Legally Incompetent,’ on grounds of their inability to deal with an ongoing major nuclear disaster that would likely pose an existential threat to other nations in the region and beyond, and then appoint an international team of guardians and conservators to oversee the day-to-day running of the country?

Another tank leaking toxic water at Fukushima nuclear plant: Operator

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the operator of Japan’s nuked Fukushima nuclear power plant, said another tank holding highly radioactive coolant is leaking, and that some of the toxic liquid likely entered the Pacific Ocean.

The leaked fluid contained 200,000 becquerels per liter of beta-emitting radioactive isotopes including strontium 90, according to the company. The legal limit for strontium 90 is reportedly 30 becquerels per liter.

In August, at least 300 tons of highly toxic water escaped from one of the hastily built holding tanks. TEPCO has been pumping hundreds of tons of water a day to keep the reactors cool. The tanks are used to store the highly toxic wastewater.

On October 1,  TEPCO admitted it had found yet another leak at the plant, which caused 4 tons of radioactive water to enter the sea.

The criminally negligent government of Japan and TEPCO apparently won’t rest until the entire region, the country, the sea and all of its content, is contaminated with radiation.

This is now a matter of urgent global security, but the government in Japan has not taken any steps to address the worsening disaster.

Japan’s False Bravado

Hubris can only stem from ignorance, and it usually results in major downfalls and death. And no one could possibly know this better than the Japanese.

Yoshinoya Holdings, a Japanese fast-food chain, announced yesterday plans to grow rice and vegetables on a farm in Shirakawa, located less than 100 km (60 miles) from the nuked Fukushima power plant.

Up to quarter of a million people living nearest to Fukushima nuke plant were ordered to move out after the March 2011 mega earthquake and tsunami caused triple reactor meltdowns, contaminating the ground, water air and everything.

The government reluctantly established a 20-km compulsory evacuation zone and various voluntary evacuation zones have since been set us from site of the world’s worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.

FIRE-EARTH experts have advised all of their colleagues and friends who live anywhere in Japan to obtain a Geiger counter and to NOT leave home without it.

What would it take for the Asian countries most at risk from Fukushima nuclear disaster to team up and declare the Japaneses government ‘Legally Incompetent,’ on grounds of their inability to deal with an ongoing major nuclear disaster that would likely pose an existential threat to other nations in the region and beyond, and then appoint an international team of guardians and conservators to oversee the day-to-day running of the country?

Threat of Nuclear Leak at Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant

Posted by feww on March 11, 2011

BREAKING NEWS:

Radioactive Leak Threatens Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant

The authorities have evacuated everyone living within a 3-km radius of the Fukushima Nuclear power plant because the battery used for one of the reactor’s emergency cooling system is running out, NHK has said.

Other residents living within the 3 to 10 km radius of the plant have been advised to stay indoors  and remain calm, while they await further instruction.

A nuclear leak is likely to occur, if the main cooling system fails to restart before the battery runs out.

Th e reactor was shut down after the magnitude 8.9 Mega Quake struck offshore east of the city Sendai, Japan earlier today.

Fukushima nuclear power plant, located in the town of Okuma in the Futaba District of Fukushima Prefecture, is one of the largest nuclear plants in the world, with 8 separate reactor units.

Sendai Mega Quake Update:

The estimated death toll in Japan’s Miyagi prefecture (state) from the mega quake and tsunami has reached at least 300. Authorities say about 300 people have drowned, NHK reported.

Radioactive Leak at TEPCO Unit Near Tokyo

Posted by feww on May 8, 2008

TEPCO Leak Caused by Earthquake?

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), the world’s biggest private electric power company, discovered a small leakage of radioactive water within one of its nuclear units north of Tokyo on Thursday.

The utility has not ruled out whether a strong earthquake with a magnitude of 6.8 that shook the area early Thursday morning had caused the leakage of contaminated water.

The leak, TEPCO said, had “no environmental impact” outside of the nuclear power plant.
