Fukushima to Begin Dumping Radiation

TEPCO has plans to dump the radiated water used to cool the deactivate plant directly into the ocean. They have been storing the water in holding tanks since the incident but the tanks are almost at capacity.

The initial wave of radiation has already been affecting fish and sea life as far away as Canada’s west coast. It surely has affected all sea life but in the US, the government has been working to suppress the danger. Shortly after the catastrophe, the Obama administration had the level of toxic radiation exposure raised by a factor of 1,000. According to scientists any radiation exposure is hazardous. Radiation from cesium and strontium have very long half lives and once a person is exposed, the radiation will continue to cause damage for the person’s life.

The largest problem is that the radiation can not be avoided. The only possible way of minimizing human exposure is to contain the radiation. TEPCO plans to do the exact opposite. By dumping the radio active water in to the ocean will increase the amount of exposure as well an exacerbate the damage.

If this incident is actually an extinction level event (ELE), it might explain why the governments of the world and the news media are working to minimize the dangers. If they were to report that it is unable to be contained and multitudes of people will perish, this would cause global panic. It might lead to a revolt that might cause those whom out right lied to be targeted by the ones affected.

Japan to Build Road With Radioactive Dirt

Japan has been working to find a way to clean up the damage left by the 2011 disaster. Up till now their efforts have been to say the least lacking. It is understandable that the clean up is no small task and there is no viable way to neutralize the nuclear waste but every since the incident, Japan has refused help from other countries.

Their new idea to get rid of the contaminated soil is to use it to build new roadways. This idea is so far fetched, reports from 2017 found that the radiation levels at the site were as high as 530 sieverts per hour. A level of 5 sieverts per hour is proven deadly to humans within a few months, a level of 10 sieverts per hour will kill you within a few weeks. The soil within a few mile radius of the plant will likely have levels of 5 or 10 sieverts.

Fukushima Radiation Monitors Malfunctioning

After the fateful meltdown, about 3,000 radiation monitors were installed. Since that time, they have experienced nearly 4,000 glitches with the monitors.

Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority plans on removing about 80% of them by 2020. Some local authorities as well as residents are in opposition to the removal. It is believed that the agency is removing them as a cost cutting effort but the authority says that the monitors to be removed are in areas where the radiation levels have fallen and the monitors are not needed.

The monitors were installed in kindergartens and schools. The residents feel that there is still a need for these monitors so they can track the amount of radiation their children are exposed to. Radiation levels changed daily due to wind direction and atmospheric changes. It is reasonable to believe that even though the radiation levels may have decreased there is still a need for monitoring the daily levels.
