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

Massive Radiation at Fukushima Reactor ‘Blinds’ Cleaner Robot

Posted by feww on February 11, 2017

Decommissioning of Nuclear Reactors at Fukushima a Pipe Dream?

TEPCO sent a remote-controlled cleaning robot inside the crippled reactor no. 2 at Fukushima nuclear plant, but was forced to withdraw it on Thursday before it could complete its mission because of camera damage most likely caused by high radiation levels of about 650 Sieverts per hour, according to the operator.

TEPCO managers insist that despite the dangerously high figures, radiation is contained inside the reactor unit and is not leaking out.

The operator has not yet established the exact location, condition and quantity of melted fuel and the nature of structural damage in the three stricken reactors.

Three reactors were critically damaged and suffered meltdown in March 2011, after a mega [KSFA] earthquake and tsunami hit the area.

Elevated Radioactivity Prompts Partial Shutdown of UK’s Sellafield NPP

Posted by feww on January 31, 2014

Sellafield nuclear processing plant detects “elevated levels of radioactivity”

Operators of the 68-year-old Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant said on Friday they had detected elevated levels of radioactivity at the site and ordered all non-essential workers to stay at home.

Sellafield, located in Cumbria, about 450km NW of London,  is the largest nuclear site in Europe and employs more than 10,000 people.

The plant is currently being decommissioned at an estimated cost of about $115 billion (£70bn). The cost will be born by the British taxpayers.

A level III (out of seven) incident on the International Nuclear Event Scale occurred at Sellafield’s Thorp plant in April 2005, when radioactive material escaped from a toxic waste storage area.

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.
