CHAOS is all I can say. What a JOKE! Meltdown in unit 1 so they place a tent over it. Unit 4 leaning and may fall at any strong wind or "aftershock". Un-Believable. And the worst part is, nobody really seems to CARE! They throw parties to celebrate Fukushima food supply. A prefecture SOUTH of Tokyo has high levels of Cesium, PS: Fukushima is way north of that area and the area affected by the Cesium on the tea leaves is NOT in the exclusion/evacuation zone. It's not like radiation has a choice to ONLY LAND ON TEA LEAVES, it's Everywhere! Duah. I could rant on and on! So, I will put my simple tags up and call it a day. PS: there will be no report tomorrow from here. I'm taking the day off.
RESIDENTS, PLEASE BEWARE OF THE NHK MEDIA SPIN and the involvement of the cover-up of false "facts". If you live in Japan, please PLEASE read this article with open eyes: http://japanfocus.org/-Makiko-Segawa/...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkkFex... Gundersen analyzes new pressure and temperature data from the Fukushima reactors and containments. TEPCO recently denied that the fuel pool in Unit 4 was experiencing a partial inadvertent criticality, despite the finding of radioactive iodine-131 (an isotope with an eight-day half-life). The utility blamed the iodine on deposition resulting from the explosion of the other buildings. Gundersen takes an in-depth look at TEPCO's Theory. Lastly, he discusses the FDA decision not to monitor fish for radioactivity.
*Note: Single radiation dose of 2,000 millisieverts (200,000 millirems) and above causes serious illness. See also exposure list below. Half-life of some radioactive elements
[NOTE: Half-life is the time taken for a radioactive substance to decay by half.] * Cesium-134 ~ 2 years * Cesium-137 ~ 30 years * Iodine-131 ~ 8 days * Plutonium-239 ~ 24,200 years * Ruthenium-103 ~ 39 days [Ruthenium is a fission product of uranium-235.] * Ruthenium-106 ~ 374 days * Strontium-90 ~ 28.85 years [Strontium-90 is a product of nuclear fission and is found in large amounts in spent nuclear fuel and in radioactive waste from nuclear reactors.] * Uranium-234 ~ 246,000 years * Uranium-235 ~ 703.8 million years * Uranium-238 ~ 4.468 billion years
