Again as Traditional Owners, the Barngarla denied a say on their own Country, while a few white … Continue reading The nuclear fight: then and now

Do Emissions from Nuclear Power Plants Cause Cancer? | Irvine Community News and Views

While we agonize over the COVID-19 pandemic, perhaps it is also appropriate to consider another medical enigma which kills far more.  Cancer is the number one killer in California.  This year, cancer deaths are expected to exceed 60,000 in California and 600,000 nationwide.  Radioactive discharges from nuclear power plants are viewed by many as a … Continue reading Do Emissions from Nuclear Power Plants Cause Cancer? | Irvine Community News and Views

Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima is “worst industrial cataclysm in history of world… As close to hell as I can imagine” — Melted fuel ‘disappeared’ — Contamination will go on for hundreds of thousands of years… “No one knows when it’ll end” — Gov’t perpetrating ongoing cover-up (VIDEO)

Arnie Gundersen, former nuclear engineer, Mar 11, 2017 (emphasis added): The scientific impact of the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi is an ongoing disaster that was never envisioned by the engineers who created and designed these atomic reactors and countries who built them… no country in the world with nuclear power reactors was prepared for … Continue reading Nuclear Engineer: Fukushima is “worst industrial cataclysm in history of world… As close to hell as I can imagine” — Melted fuel ‘disappeared’ — Contamination will go on for hundreds of thousands of years… “No one knows when it’ll end” — Gov’t perpetrating ongoing cover-up (VIDEO)

On March 31, 2017, Japan cuts off free housing for “voluntary” evacuees; one mother’s story

At the time of the accident, I learnt that, previously, the radiation dose limit for the general public was stipulated by law as one millisievert in a year (or 0.23 microsievert per hour). Before the nuclear power plant accident, the radiation level in Fukushima city was 0.03 microsievert per hour. Immediately following the 2011 accident, … Continue reading On March 31, 2017, Japan cuts off free housing for “voluntary” evacuees; one mother’s story

FEATURE-After Fukushima disaster, Japanese mothers don lab coats to measure radiation

IWAKI, Japan, March 9 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - At a laboratory an hour's drive from Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant, a woman with a white mask over her mouth presses bright red strawberries into a pot, ready to be measured for radiation contamination. Six years after a massive earthquake off the coast of Japan triggered meltdowns … Continue reading FEATURE-After Fukushima disaster, Japanese mothers don lab coats to measure radiation

Fukushima laden with piles of radioactive soil that can’t be moved into storage

One of the reasons behind Sakai’s decision not to return is the radioactively contaminated soil that remains in the village. Walking around the village, one can see mounds with green covers over them, concealing flexible containers that hold contaminated soil. According to the Ministry of the Environment, the amount of tainted soil stored temporarily like … Continue reading Fukushima laden with piles of radioactive soil that can’t be moved into storage
