Newly-Completed Fukushima 'Containment' Wall Already "Slightly Leaning"

20151129_tepco.jpg

Just weeks after re-starting the building of a giant ice-wall to contain groundwater leaking from the Fukushima nuclear plant, TEPCO has been forced to admit that a 780-meter protective wall built alongside the crippled power station (completed only last month and designed to prevent contaminated groundwater from seeping into the sea) is already "slightly leaning." While this sounds a lot like being half-pregnant, TEPCO remains 'optimistic' that the wall will hold. But you can't say the government is not trying - in an effort to 'calm' the public, scientists have developed a special scanner to accurately measure the amount of radioactive material inside the bodies of young children... which is odd given just how "contained" Abe said it was.

Huge Fukushima Cover-Up Exposed, Government Scientists In Meltdown

20151219_fuku.jpg

Fukushima radiation just off the North American coast is higher now than it has ever been, and government scientists and mainstream press are scrambling to cover-up and downplay the ever-increasing deadly threat that looms for millions of Americans.

The earthquake aftermath footage coming out of Japan is both shocking and amazing to look at. Roads disappeared, buildings collapsed. A dam that they are concerned will burst. A volcano that might now erupt again.

Lots of dead people. Goodness know how many people trapped.

Fukushima Radiation Has Contaminated The Entire Pacific Ocean (And It's Going To Get Worse)

20161002_fuku.jpg

The Fukushima nuclear disaster has contaminated the world's largest ocean in only five years and it's still leaking 300 tons of radioactive waste every day.

Going to contaminate the entire water supply of the planet?

Russian government propaganda news site thinks nuclear power is bad and the gas they sell is good?

There's a surprise.

One thing discovered from Chernobyl; low level radiation does NOT increase the risk of cancer.

TEPCO Admits Fukushima Radiation Levels Reach Record Highs As Hole In Reactor Discovered

20170203_fuku2.jpg

With just 3 years left until the 2020 Olympics, Japan is likely desperate to reassure the world's athletes that all is well, but an admission from TEPCO - the Fukushima nuclear plant operator - that they discovered a hole at least one square meter in size beneath the reactor's pressure vessel, and lethal record-high radiation levels have been detected, will not likely reassure anyone.

Having had a little search of the 'news' its hard to find any coherent coverage of the latest 'developments', doesn't help that most journalists are clueless on anything technical and the public is more interested in talent shows, celebrities and other stuff pedalled to the mentally numb.

Some interesting nuggest but nothing concrete to where the melted fuel has gone/ended up, anything more detailed on the 530Sv/hr figure or on the 300m3/hr of seepage into the sea.

The Japanese honor mentallity verges on criminal at times, if Japan were not an American vassal state it would be bankrupt toast.

Not Fukushima, but interesting:

 

Radioactive boars found in Czech forests 31yrs after Chernobyl disaster

Radioactive wild boars have been detected in Czech forests, some 31 years after the Chernobyl disaster, a veterinary administration official said, adding that they are eating mushrooms that can absorb high levels of radioactive isotopes.

The animals became radioactive due to false truffles, the underground mushrooms they feed on, Jiri Drapal at the Czech State Veterinary Administration told Reuters. The mushroom is found in the Sumava mountain region in the Czech Republic, which borders Austria and Germany.

It can absorb high levels of radioactive isotopes, including Caesium 137, which was released in great quantities after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

Caesium-137 has a half-life of 30 years, which means it loses half of its radioactivity within that period.

When boars eat radioactive mushrooms, they become radioactive themselves. Boar meat is highly popular in the Czech Republic, so there’s danger of radioactive meat ending up on one’s table.

Not to worry. They're easier to hunt since they glow in the dark.

And boars taking over Fukushima now. Massive 100ft tall boars with huge teeth etc etc:

Sounds normal for Japan. Just drag out the giant robots to fight them if they cause trouble.

From the map it just seems to know not to go into the adjacent oceans and seas - and what about the stuff in the air.

What is it with boars?

All we need now are some Roman legionaries and then the real fun can begin.

I see, you are anti-nuclear because it reduces the price of Russia's main export - oil. You Russians are so predictable.
