The report published in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, nuclear weapon proliferation experts Robert Norris and Hans Kristensen estimate that Israel halted its production of nuclear warheads back in 2004 “once it reached around 80 munitions,” RT reports Monday.
The operator of the leaking Fukushima nuclear plant said that it dumped more than 1,000 tons of polluted water into the sea after a typhoon raked the facility. 300 tonnes of contaminated groundwater is entering the ocean every day TEPCO says.
this staggering reality lurks continually behind the scenes of the major media spotlight, but it cannot be ignored any longer. think about courses of action should a much greater incident take place, already accumulating vast quantities of radiation in the northern hemisphere's atmosphere and the Pacific ocean.
Scientists have found a rare and deadly amoeba in the water supply of a Louisiana parish where a child died last month from a brain infection caused by the microscopic organism, according to state health officials.
Workers were pumping out water from areas near tanks storing radioactive water, from which leaks are believed to have seeped into groundwater.“But we decided to release the water into sea as we reached a conclusion that it can be regarded as rainfall after we monitored levels of radiation,” TEPCO spokesman Yo Koshimizu said.
The Japan Meteorological Agency ( JMA) on Monday has issued emergency warnings on heavy rain in Kyoto, Shiga and Fukui prefectures as the 18th typhoon, Man-yi, made a landfall near the area earlier the day. The special warning was been launched for the first time since the warning system was introduced late August.
Japan is to start the process of switching off its last working nuclear reactor with no firm date set for the potential restart of the reactor.
If you haven’t heard of Washington’s Initiative 522, it’s the state’s version of a GMO labeling act that will go into effect if enough signatures are received – and could go into effect in July of 2015. The 522 Initiative is getting heated enough, but extra controversy surrounds the law due to its implications
We need the national news stations to go cover the environmental disaster that’s happening in Colorado right now.
Colorado emergency management officials have released an initial estimate that says the ongoing flooding has damaged or destroyed nearly 19,000 homes.
Japan should begin preparing to release a massive tide of water from the wrecked Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean, once it regains public trust and can confirm the water has only low levels of radiation, a U.S. adviser to the plant's operator said on Sept. 13.
Tepco doesn’t know how to stop the leaks - Scientists have no idea where the cores of the nuclear reactors are - Radiation could hit Korea, China and the West Coast of North America fairly hard. But the real problem is that the idiots who caused this mess are probably about to cause a much bigger problem.
Bio-accumulation of radioactive elements around Fukushima will devastate many future Japanese generations, while the Pacific Ocean is also being contaminated by leaking radioactive water. Yet there is still no good solution from the Japanese government.
There is No Place On Earth to Escape the Rad - articles have been widely circulated in various social media outlets about Fukushima and the nuclear horrors we collectively face. It seems that the ‘Pro-Nuker Propaganda Machinery’ is ampped up in full force, and unbelievably, re-cycling old lies from 2011
Among several “chemicals of concern” recently removed from a list of proposed regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency, Bisphenol A, a neurotoxin and endocrine disruptor that also damages DNA, has been banned in several other nations and in eleven US states.
Japanese government has assured the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that it would take the initiative in dealing with the massive buildup of radioactive water at the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in the country's northeast.
This week, radiation levels at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan hit a “new high”, according to officials there. While the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), who owns the site, seems to have been content painting a rosy picture for the world, the situation has been worsening.
The Japanese government said it will spend almost half a billion dollars, much of it to build a giant wall of ice underground to try to stop the flow of radioactive water leaking into the ocean.
Radiation readings of 1,800 millisieverts (mSv) per hour - 18 times the level at the same spot 10 days ago - have been detected at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant.
Chris Busby: I think this is an indication that it has actually deteriorated significantly, very suddenly in the last week. What they are not saying and what is the missing piece of evidence here is that radiation suddenly cannot increase unless something happens and that something cannot be leakage from a tank,
The headlines are dire: Two and a half years after the nuclear disaster at Fukushima Dai-ichi, contaminated water is leaking from the plant at a faster rate than most people realized, getting into the groundwater and the Pacific Ocean.
Workers are still unable to say when they will be able to stop the water from seeping into the ocean. The plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company has been trying to contain tainted groundwater from leaking into the ocean since the accident.
The government will lead “emergency measures” to combat the radioactive water leaks at the wrecked Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, wresting control of the disaster recovery from Tokyo Electric Power Co. We’ve allowed Tepco to deal with the situation and they’ve turned it into a game of ‘whack-a-mole,’
We are witnessing transitions from social-welfare states to social-control states around the world. We are facing a global crisis that is unprecedented, given its magnitude, its global reach, the extent of ecological degradation and social deterioration, and the scale of the violence. We face a crisis of humanity...
Secret 1955 U.S. government report concluded the ocean may not dilute radiation from nuclear accidents, and there could be “pockets” and “streams” of highly-concentrated radiation. Radiation on the West Coast of North America could end up being 10 times higher than in Japan:
It may be that in the near future the evacuation of the human population of Japan and the sterilization of most life in the Pacific Ocean represent the "best case scenario." There are other possible scenarios that are far grimmer.
