Fukushima: Worsening Situation
Two years after a triple meltdown at Fukushima condition get worse. Over the last five months the amount of Strontium 90 found in ground water has increased 100 times!
It has been going around the earth every time the jet stream does...many people have just forgotten about it and think it went away...we live in a closed environment and it goes into the atmosphere and rains/snows down to earth....this is never going away.
As we as atmospheric pollution there are even more appalling amounts of radiation pollution the ocean. What is the scariest thought is this will continue as they have no idea how to stop it!
Tell me that nuclear reactors produce clean electricity.
Tell me nuclear reactors produce cheap electricity.
Tell me nuclear reactors are safe.
I will not believe you.
Fukushima radioactive groundwater readings rocket
Toxic radioactive substances in groundwater at Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant have rocketed over the past three days, its operator said, admitting it did not know where the leak was coming from.
Samples taken on Monday showed levels of possibly cancer-causing caesium-134 were more than 90 times higher than they were on Friday, at 9,000 becquerels per litre, Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) revealed.
Levels of caesium-137 stood at 18,000 becquerels per litre, 86 times higher than at the end of last week, the utility said.
Few live pollution free and have no impacts on other lives but I deeply resent the consequences of other peoples choices to support and use nuclear power and I find myself boycotting everything Japanese because of their choices and believe me, plenty of that burning radiated materials in incinerators without scrubbers is a choice to dissipate their radiation pollution worldwide . i believe little of this is being widely reported here to protect fragile international trade at corporate levels but they have incinerated their waste for decades pumping pollution into the air and actively are incinerating radiated materials in their efforts to 'clean up' there.
Yikes, flooding the grounds at Fukushima has compromised the soil creating waterlogged soils under reactor 4 , I honestly think every Japanese person who consumed 'clean' 'cheap' nuclear energy is paying with their health, their soils and the pacific ocean . Unfortunately we never used nuclear and we might be living with some consequences as this continues .
I consider that Arnie Gunderson reports with the most clear headed clarity on matters at Fukushima and does not inflate and sensationalize the situation so I trust his opinion and he said this website was a good source of news on Fukushima so I am posting a link to the Enews articles on Fukushima. It seems lie after lie is perpetrated in regard to Fukushima and we are continuously being told way after the fact that matters were exponentially worse than being reported . I am concerned about our welfare in the Northern Hemisphere and the affects world wide and I abhor the risks countries using nuclear fed grid power are taking . If anyone else is following this , let me know what you think of this website, it seems the news is so much more grim than reported elsewhere but when I checked the environmental news on it pertaining to our west coast, it reporting accurately .
Since I am personally obsessing with some anxiety over Fukushima , here is comment from Dr. Helen Caldicott :
