Photo Personal geiger counter indicates radiation level 1.8 times higher than public monitoring post

A Minamisoma citizen talked a public monitoring post shows the radiation level lower than a personal geiger counter. He posted the picture below. It was taken in the afternoon of 6/24/2014 and the location is the temporary storage area, which Fukushima Diary wrote about in the previous article.

West Coast Covered In Massive 3 11 Radiation

Asked why the government officials only expanded the evacuation zones in increments, [Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Tetsuro Fukuyama] told committee members that it was feared that major traffic jams could ensue [...] Asked why the officials did not issue an evacuation order for people living in a radius of 20 km to 30 km from the plant, Fukuyama suggested they instead were ordered to remain indoors as an emergency response, because it was estimated that it could take four to five days to evacuate all the 140,000 residents Read More »

Fukushima is human-engineered crisis that threatens health of Pacific Ocean – expert

Fukushima is human-engineered crisis that threatens health of Pacific Ocean - expert

Japan starting constructing an underground ice wall at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, freezing the soil under broken reactors to slow the build-up of radioactive water. The Nuclear Regulation Authority, the national watchdog, last week authorised construction of the ice wall at Fukushima Daiichi, owned and operated by Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO). The Voice of Russia talked to Dr. Majia Nadesan, Professor at Arizona State University’s New College. Read More »

Quakes are increasing, but scientists aren’t sure what it means

Quakes are increasing, but scientists aren't sure what it means

No, it's not your imagination: The Los Angeles area is feeling more earthquakes this year. After a relatively quiet period of seismic activity in the Los Angeles area, the last five months have been marked by five earthquakes larger than 4.0. That hasn't occurred since 1994, the year of the destructive Northridge earthquake that produced 53 such temblors. Read More »

4.2 magnitude earthquake jolts West LA

4.2 magnitude earthquake jolts West LA

An earth tremor that took place in a densely populated area west of Los Angeles on Sunday evening set on alert the seaside from Malibu down to the Manhattan Beach. There have been no immediate reports about damage or people injured. Initially, the US Geological Survey (USGS) measured the quake’s magnitude at 3.8, but later revised the magnitude to 4.2. The earthquake that took place at 7:36am PDT originated from the Santa Monica Mountains, some 4 miles (6.4km) northwest of Westwood, was reported to be shallow, yet caused two aftershocks.

I want to shout for all the people in this world: “Please Please HELP US!” The cause substance have been found. This is an aggregate of radionuclides which starts with Uranium [in] a nuclear reactor at more than 5000°C. Read More »

Record high radiation in sea water off Fukushima plant

Record high radiation in sea water off Fukushima plant

Radiation has spiked to all-time highs at five monitoring points in waters adjacent to the crippled Fukushima No. 1 power station, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Friday. The measurements follow similar highs detected in groundwater at the plant. Officials of Tepco, as the utility is known, said the cause of the seawater spike is unknown. Read More »

Fukushima Study – Deaths, Mutations Up Dramatically

Fukushima Study - Deaths, Mutations Up Dramatically

Smithsonian Magazine, May 14, 2014: Even Tiny Amounts of Radioactive Food Made Caterpillars Become Abnormal Butterflies [...] Researchers in Japan [...] discovered, even a small amount of radiation is too much. [...] The scientists collected plant material from around Fukushima and fed it to pale grass blue butterfly caterpillars. When the caterpillars turned into butterflies, they suffered from mutations and were more likely to die early [... even if they] had only eaten a small amount of artificial caesium [...] In other words, things don’t look good for the animals living around Fukushima.

Mystery Marine Disease On AK Coast - Public Concern (RADIATION!)

KNOM, May 14, 2014: Mysterious illness that’s been plaguing seals [first hit] the Bering Strait and the North Slope starting in the summer of 2011. Up to 300 seals were found suffering from hair loss, skin sores, and unusually lethargic behavior. Dozens of walruses were also found with similar sores [causing] marine mammal regulators to declare an Unusual Mortality Event [...] walrus have been taken off the UME [...] Seals [are still] displaying hair loss [...] University of Alaska Fairbanks have begun testing infected seal carcasses for [Fukushima] radiation [...] Results should be released in July.
