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

Radiation Record Broken by Fukushima Fish

Posted by feww on March 18, 2013

Fish found with record 7,400 times the legal radiation limit near Fukushima NPP

The Operators of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), said they had caught a fish with record 740,000 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium, Kyodo News reported.

The radiated fish, a greenling, which measured 38 cm long and weighed 564 grams, was caught near a water intake of the power station on February 21, said the report.

The previous known record of radioactive cesium contamination in fish was 510,000 becquerels per kilogram found in another greenling caught in the same area…

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant underwent multiple meltdowns after it was crippled by the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and the ensuing tsunami on March 11, 2011.

Record High Radiation Found in Fukushima Fish

Posted by feww on March 1, 2013

Contaminated fish caught near Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi NPP had 5,100 times the legal radiation limits: TEPCO

The hexagrammos otakii  (Fat Greening, Ainame) fish, caught in a port near the nuclear power plant, showed caesium contamination reaching 510,000 becquerels per kilogram, or 5,100 times more than the government food limit, said the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO).

The latest find is more than twice the previous record caesium contamination in fish of 254,000 becquerels per kilogram.

Meantime, caesium radiation equivalent to 277,000 becquerels per kilogram were also found in a rockfish, said the company.

Japan PM asks Hamaoka nuke plant to shut down

Posted by feww on May 7, 2011

Japanese gov asks Chubu Electric Power Co to shut reactors at Hamaoka nuclear power plant near Tokyo

Japan’s Prime Minister Naoto Kan has confirmed that his government asked Chubu Electric Power Co to stop all reactors at its Hamaoka nuclear power plant, pending  implementation of “safety precautions.”

Hamaoka NPP is located in Omaezak, Shizuoka Prefecture, about 200km (120 miles) south of Tokyo, an area known as the Tokai region, where Japanese seismologist believe a magnitude-8.0 or stronger earthquake could strike  within 30 years with a probability of 87 percent.

Incredibly, the Hamaoka plant sits on an active fault within an area where Tokai earthquake is expected to strike.

Of Hamaoka five reactors only two Nos. 4 and 5 are operating, which the government has asked the operator to shut down immediately. Reactors 1 and 2, built in the late 1970s, are being decommissioned, and Reactor 3 is offline undergoing maintenance.

“Should a serious accident unfold at the Hamaoka nuclear plant, the implications would be far-reaching as the Tokaido Shinkansen Line and the Tomei Expressway–two key transportation arteries in Honshu run within 20 kilometers of the plant.” Asahi reported.

Will the Company Comply?

“The utility’s spokesperson said that the government’s request would have major implications on the region it services because of the energy conservation measures that may have to be put in place. Chubu Electric services Shizuoka, Aichi, Gifu, Nagano and Mie prefectures.” The report said.

“The president (of Chubu Electric) said that he wants to hold his final answer.” Japan’s industry minister has said.

In reply to the question, what if the company refuses to comply, PM Kan said: “We will talk to the company to have them understand our intent fully.”

UNBELIEVABLY,  Japan’s “prime minister is not authorized to order the shutdown of nuclear reactors.” Said the report.

Fukushima NPP

Meanwhile, a 20km (12 mile) mandatory evacuation zone remains enforced at the Fukushima power plant, keeping up to 125,000 people out of their homes, as TEPCO technicians struggle to “stabilize” the stricken nuclear plant. Explosions at the plant, which occurred after it was  struck by the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and tsunami two months ago, were responsible for Japan’s worst nuclear disaster, to date.
