We know it’s bad – but how bad?
Nearly eight years have passed since an earthquake and tsunami in Japan killed 16,000 people and caused nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. New research now suggests that the radiation released by the nuclear disaster may have lingering effects on fish—but that the risk posed to human beings from consumption, thanks in part to strong regulation, is maxim.
10 days ago from this writing, the sardine fishery of British Columbia, Canada was reported to have “inexplicably” collapsed. Simply no sardines were caught and the fleet went home, empty-handed. Starfish and seal populations in that region are also collapsing.
We’ve heard now about three complete meltdowns that are occurring at the afflicted power plant at Fukushima – but we’ve never heard about the fact that there are actually 6 reactors at the site! We know that this week, 2 separate typhoons (the term for hurricanes in the western Pacific) will be colliding exactly over Fukushima this week, all the better to disperse the unfathomable tonnage of hot particles into the Pacific Ocean Basin, set to do further ruin to the already-collapsing ecosystems throughout this immense area.
Were there to be a fire spread, due to the hundreds of unsecured nuclear fuel rods at the plant today, a chain reaction could occur and “The Northern Hemisphere could easily be facing an extreme fallout situation, where everybody would have to shelter indoors for several months or more,” according to Christina Consolo, Founder of Nuked Radio. When interviewed by Russia Today, Consolo’s assessment was that the worst case scenario could play out into the deaths of “billions of people. A true apocalypse.”
Expert: Plutonium-241 from Fukushima nearly 70,000 times more than atomic bomb fallout in Japan — Gov’t Labs: Large areas of oceans contaminated by plutonium from events such as Fukushima; Build-up in biosphere expected; Considerable hazard to humans — Officials: Molten fuel now ‘particle-like’, contains ‘special’ nuclear materials.
A new radiation reading taken deep inside Japan’s damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor No. 2 shows levels reaching a maximum of 530 sieverts per hour, a number experts have called “unimaginable”.
Even a brief exposure to 530 sieverts of radiation would kill a person. Exposure to only one sievert is enough to result in infertility, loss of hair and cataracts. According to the National Institute of Radiological Sciences, exposure to a mere four sieverts of radiation would typically be lethal for one out of every two people. The highest level of radiation detected previously at the Fukushima reactor was 73 sieverts per hour.
Some believe Tokyo is not safe to live in, and should be evacuated, and that the radiation is bioconcentration up the food chain to humans.
There is an increase in frequency of mutations, being found in trees, insects, plants, birds, animals — and the entire western coastline of Pacific ocean is basically sterilized, with few species remaining.The soil and lichens have VERY high radioactivity. 6000 Bq /kG! 30 Bq/kG is dangerous to animals and above 100 Bq/kG said animals cannot be sold.
The impact of the Fukushima-derived radiostrontium ((90)Sr and (89)Sr) on the western North Pacific Ocean has not been well established, although (90)Sr concentrations recorded in surface seawater offshore of the damaged Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant were in some areas comparable to or even higher than (as those in December 2011 with 400 kBq m(-3)(90)Sr) the (137)Cs levels. The total amount of (90)Sr released to the marine environment in the form of highly radioactive wastewater could reach about 1 PBq. Long-term series (1960-2010) of (90)Sr concentration measurements in subtropical surface waters of the western North Pacific indicated that its concentration has been decreasing gradually with a half-life of 14 y. The pre-Fukushima (90)Sr levels in surface waters, including coastal waters near Fukushima, were estimated to be 1 Bq m(-3). To better assess the impact of about 4-5 orders of magnitude increased radiostrontium levels on the marine environment, more detail measurements in seawater and biota of the western North Pacific are required.
The company has admitted that it did not act properly during the disaster, confessing in February that it announced the nuclear meltdowns far too late. It also stated in a 2012 report that it downplayed safety risks caused by the incident, out of fear that additional measures would lead to a shutdown of the plant and further fuel public anxiety and anti-nuclear campaigns.
The attempted cover up of the severity of the Fukushima disaster is nothing new. Governments have been covering up nuclear meltdowns for 50 years, and the basic design for nuclear reactors was not chosen for safety, but because it worked on Navy submarines … and produced plutonium for the military.
Nuclear Expert: We found ‘mystery’ Fukushima plutonium; Why it’s there is yet to be understood, this was not expected — US Gov’t Expert: I don’t want to go down the rabbit hole too far… There’s speculation about plutonium fuel and about what other fuel they were using.
(Indeed, the government’s response to every crisis appears to be to try to cover it up; and see this.)
Today, Yomiuri Shinbun reports (Google translation) that the U.S. knew within days that Fukushima had melted down:
The US … already knew about the unusually high temperature of the reactors from the Global Hawk data, and determined that “the fuel has already melted”.
The US high-ranking officials wanted to evacuate the US citizens [Tokyo] but the local officials including Maher objected, as “it would severely undermine the US-Japan alliance”
In this article by Green Road Journal, they claim that the mass media, for the most part, is reporting a pro nuclear industry view. After, they say, six years of research, the authors put forward their pessimistic view:
Fukushima has released 257 Tons Of Heavy Metal Radioactive Poisons; 429 Lethal Radiation Doses Chasing Each Person on the Planet (Dr. Paolo Scamp), and that it is 12,000 times worse than Chernobyl.
Mass die offs in ocean started in 2011, but the situation is getting worse.
Radiation levels recorded inside Fukushima’s crippled nuclear power station are at the highest levels since its catastrophic meltdown in 2011.
Tokyo Electric Power Co. Holdings Inc (Tepco) said the radiation level in the containment vessel of Reactor 2 in the Fukushima No 1 power plant had reached a maximum of 530 sieverts per hour, Japan Times reports.
The “unimaginable” radiation levels were assessed by the National Institute of Radiological Sciences.
According to the institute, just 4 sieverts of radiation exposure would be enough kill a handful of people. Tepco said it had found a two-metre hole in the metal grating under the reactor that would need to be patched after a robot was sent in to asses some of the damage.
The hole which appears to be warped is believed to have formed from searing hot fuel escaping the pressure chamber during the accident.
Early next month a new specially designed robot will be sent inside the reactor to start a detailed assessment of various damaged systems, however it will only be able to operate for a few hours before it is destroyed by the extreme levels of radiation inside the plant.
The 2011 meltdown was the worst nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 Tepco, the company responsible for clean-up after 2011 Fukushima disaster, found high levels of radiation inside one of the crippled reactors, but no reactor is about to collapse into the ocean. While the 530 sieverts is extraordinarily high, experts don’t expect it to be the highest. “Similar remote investigations are being planned for Daiichi Units 1 and 3. We should not be surprised if even higher radiation levels are found there, but only actual measurements will tell.

The decommissioning project is a long-term thing. Expected to take up to 40 years, it’s a big, complicated, and dangerous job. Estimates by the Japanese government put the cost upwards of $190 billion dollars. Because so much nuclear material from Fukushima escaped into the Pacific Ocean, there are many scientists that believe that it was the worst environmental disaster in human history, but most people in the general population seem to think that since the mainstream media really doesn’t talk about it anymore that everything must be under control.
Unfortunately, that is not true at all. In fact, PBS reported just last year that “it is incorrect to say that Fukushima is under control when levels of radioactivity in the ocean indicate ongoing leaks“. And now we have just learned that the radiation level inside reactor 2 is so high that no human could possibly survive being exposed to it.
According to the Japan Times, the level of radiation inside the containment vessel of reactor 2 is now estimated to be “530 sieverts per hour”… A lot of people that end up dying as a result of this crisis may never even know that it was Fukushima that caused their deaths.

Personally, I am convinced that this is the greatest environmental crisis that humanity has ever experienced, and if the latest reading from reactor 2 is any indication, things just took a very serious turn for the worse.
“The scientific impact of the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi is an ongoing disaster that was never envisioned by the engineers who created and designed these atomic reactors and countries who built them… no country in the world with nuclear power reactors was prepared for the explosive radioactive contamination of Fukushima Daiichi.”
One of the things that can seem scariest about radioactivity is that it’s invisible – you can’t see it, smell it or hear it (unless you happen to have your very own Geiger counter lying around). And one of the biggest concerns people have after a nuclear accident is cancer.
Ionising radiation – the type of radiation emitted by iodine and caesium – is a known cause of cancer, since it has sufficient energy to damage the genetic material (DNA) inside our cells – it’s this damage that can lead to cancer.
But it’s important to remember that all of us are constantly exposed to low levels of ionising radiation from natural sources in our environment. Most of this comes from a gas called radon, which leaks out of the earth’s crust at a steady rate – but some of it also comes from trace levels of radioactive elements in the food we eat, the water we drink, and from cosmic rays from space.

Thankfully, we’ve evolved sophisticated repair machinery to be able to tolerate this natural, unavoidable exposure – most of the time, it doesn’t cause us any significant harm.
But artificially-created higher levels of radiation – for example from X-rays or nuclear power plants – can be harmful, so they’re very tightly regulated. People who work in nuclear industries, or in medical centres, have to follow strict safety procedures and some even have to wear personal exposure monitors.
The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) looked at all the evidence and data on newly diagnosed cancers from areas affected by Chernobyl and concluded that, apart from thyroid cancer in those exposed as children and leukaemia in rescue and clean-up workers, there hadn’t been a detectable increase in other types of cancer (you can read their full report here).
“Although those exposed as children and the emergency and recovery workers are at increased risk of radiation-induced effects”, UNSCEAR concluded, “the vast majority of the population need not live in fear of serious health consequences due to the radiation from the Chernobyl accident”.
The best estimates we have predict that Chernobyl could eventually result in up to around 4000 cancer deaths in the 600,000 people exposed to the highest levels of radiation, mostly the people involved in the recovery and clean-up work, who received very high doses.
But for the general public, the evidence suggests it’s not actually cancer that’s been the most serious public health consequence of the accident – it’s the mental health impact and worry due to a lack of accurate information.
30 years after Chernobyl and six years after Fukushima, we now know a whole lot more about nuclear safety.
Equipment, procedures and emergency protocols have all improved, as has data collection – and so far it seems that for the general population at least, with the exception of thyroid cancer, cancer risks following nuclear accidents they actually rise by as much as one might expect.
