Three of seven Fukushima tanks leaking radioactive water

Published time: April 09, 2013 04:26

Another toxic water tank at the Fukushima Daichii power plant is likely leaking, the national atomic energy agency says, bringing the total defective tanks to three of a total seven. The tanks were built to store contaminated water.

The new leak was detected in pool No.1 while water from the leaking pool No.2 was being transported, according to the Nuclear Regulation Authority. The water transfer has been halted.

The plant’s operator Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) indicated they were "losing faith" in temporary storage pits for the radioactive water, but did not have anywhere else to put it.

there is more radiation naturally in your body than in a nuclear

accident or leak. This is well known by people who work in nuclear plants, and a former mi6 agent named Dr Jhon Coleman. This article from Rt is just propaganda. Tokyo's Daily Radiation Readings Underscore the Fallacy of the Fukushima Radiation Hysteria: http://educate-yourself.org/cn/tokyodailyradiationmonitor03d...
this article from educate-yourself.org has a link to the daily radiation readings so that you can see for yourself that there is no radiation before and afer fukishima.


that is what they get

When the supposed bright Japanese build a reactor in an earthquake soon. Hopefully the peoples of Japan get there money back.

They should be using other means of energy.


* earthquake 'zone'



Will you say that when Hanford goes?

The Fukushima plants suffer from bad design, they knew it when they built them. The Hanford plants are the same design, built on a fault line and near volcanoes. "The People" had very little say in building nuclear plants, and even less say in the design used.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.


Their entire mainland was created BY AN EARTHQUAKE... this should be obvious... But it is the same as us consuming dead plants and dinosaurs.

no radiation in japan

There are eight radiation detection stations evenly spread around Tokyo prefecture. Each monitoring station reports the hourly minimum, maximum, and average reading in micro Grays per hour (or micro Sieverts. uSv)the radiation levels in Tokyo didn't show an uptick in readings until March 15, 2011 when the average reading went from 0.0341 uGy/h to 0.109 uGy/h. They then dropped somewhat for a week and rose again above 0.100 uGy/h for a period of exactly ONE week from March 23 through March 31, 2011. This ONE week period represents the HIGHEST radiation readings that have been recorded in Tokyo since the sabotage events orchestrated at the Daiichi Nuclear power station took place on March 11 and 12 of 2011. from March 31, 2011 until December 2, 2012 the radiation readings have steadily and consistently fallen back towards the pre-attack radiation background levels. There is nothing even remotely dangerous or worrying about these radiation readings. They are well below the average daily radiation background readings at many populated areas of this planet. The Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Public Health added all of the daily readings from the date of the attack until roughly one year later and concluded that Tokyo residents would have experienced no more than 24 micro Sieverts of radiation. Compare that to the normal 400 micro Sieverts per year that people experience in Japan from radon gas exposure. It's important to note that Tokyo is 124 miles from the Daiichi Nuclear Power station in Fukushima prefecture, while Los Angeles is 5,541 miles from Tokyo. If "tons" of plutonium had been spewed into the air from the Daiichi power station, as some Japan radiation hysteria promoters have wildly claimed, then you would have seen a HUGE and unprecedented uptick in Tokyo readings BEFORE such radition could ever traverse the entire Pacific Ocean and show up on the west coast of America. Anyone can look at the radiation monitoring data in all of Japan, and in Fukushima prefecture especially, and see that the hysteria and angst generated by Japan radiation promoters on rense.com or enenews.com, or any of the dozens of blogs who mirror the Japan radiation psyops, is all out of proportion to the actual radiation exposure experienced by Japanese residents in northern Japan. I can't tell you how infuriating it is to hear repeatedly from Japan radiation propagandists like Leuren Moret or commenters on internet blogs how northern Japan will forever be "unhabitable" due to the "deadly radiation" (that never was).



I can find videos of people walking around with their Geiger counters going off. I can read articles saying they are not going off. I have yet to see video of a Geiger counter not getting readings, just people claiming that is the case.
I admit, I don't know, I'm not in Japan. But I know that you can't "leak" radiation for years without it going somewhere.

i couldn't detect the sarcasm

i couldn't detect the sarcasm at first


i guess you should tell those japanese protesters not to worry



it's pretty sad what has

it's pretty sad what has happened.
