Won’t be any ocean life left in the Pacific when they do this .. :-[

Fukushima’s radioactive water to be released into ocean under new plan!

https://www.rt.com/news/396358-fukushimas-radioactive-water-released-ocean/

The “decision has already been made” to release radioactive material from the Fukushima plant into the ocean, according to its owners. Fishermen have reacted with fury to the decision, claiming it will devastate their already struggling industry.

Some 770,000 tons (metric) of tritium-containing water is currently stored in 580 tanks at the plant, reported the Japan Times.

Situated 10 meters above sea-level, three of the nuclear power plant’s six reactors’ cooling systems were crippled by flooding caused by the tsunami, making the disaster the worst since the Chernobyl catastrophe in the USSR in 1986.

Maybe that's why the "spare" ocean beneath the ocean, which Socrates had mentioned from Genesis etc., was put there in the first place: maybe it was foreseen in the beginning that it might come to this one day if we were left to our own devices...

Good web site to keep track of "all things radioactive" ..  ???

Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center - Netc.com is an Early Warning Radiation System that takes data from private radiation monitoring stations and EPA network and creates a RBL ( Radiation Background Level ) for each 3000+ stations everyday.

Max, Is there a way to estimate right now how much stratospheric radiation cross-country airline passengers are being exposed to, with the magnetosphere being knocked down recently and these waves of solar emissions coming at us in rapid sequence?  I've heard more normal amounts in the past being expressed in terms of equivalent number of chest x-rays, and wonder how many of those we're up to now... :-X

There is a good discussion of this over at:

Cosmic Rays in the Atmosphere

http://spaceweather.com/

This plot displays radiation measurements not only in the stratosphere, but also at aviation altitudes. Dose rates are expessed as multiples of sea level. For instance, we see that boarding a plane that flies at 25,000 feet exposes passengers to dose rates ~10x higher than sea level. At 40,000 feet, the multiplier is closer to 50x. These measurements are made by our usual cosmic ray payload as it passes through aviation altitudes en route to the stratosphere over California.

What is this all about? Approximately once a week, Spaceweather.com and the students of Earth to Sky Calculus fly space weather balloons to the stratosphere over California. These balloons are equipped with radiation sensors that detect cosmic rays, a surprisingly "down to Earth" form of space weather. Cosmic rays can seed clouds, trigger lightning, and penetrate commercial airplanes. Furthermore, there are studies ( #1, #2, #3, #4) linking cosmic rays with cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death in the general population. Our latest measurements show that cosmic rays are intensifying, with an increase of more than 13% since 2015:

Why are cosmic rays intensifying? The main reason is the sun. Solar storm clouds such as coronal mass ejections (CMEs) sweep aside cosmic rays when they pass by Earth. During Solar Maximum, CMEs are abundant and cosmic rays are held at bay. Now, however, the solar cycle is swinging toward Solar Minimum, allowing cosmic rays to return. Another reason could be the weakening of Earth's magnetic field, which helps protect us from deep-space radiation.

I didn't know that atmospheric radiation was measured that way - thanks for a thorough explanation and graphics Max!  Am wondering if the squeeze that we're in right now from space will cook my family members who are traveling to AZ from PA this week...  :-X

Nuclear reactor accident in Belgium in progress: pipe rupture.  Am only finding stories about it in the Belgium, Dutch and alternative press at the moment:

Ironically, potassium iodide pills were dispensed by Belgium government officials to the public last month as a cautionary measure, though they claimed that no hazard existed.

The Three Mile Island nuclear power plant, which experienced a partial melt-down in 1979, is scheduled to close next year well ahead of the expiration of its license in 2040, and is awaiting a decision as to whether it will be dismantled right away or allowed to leave its spent fuel to decay over a longer period of time while the plant is shuttered.  Either way, the residual materials will be moved into an interim dry holding facility that is currently undergoing the construction bidding process.  Staff is already being reduced, though a decommissioned nuclear power facility still must maintain security for years until radioactive decay is completed or moved elsewhere.

Local and regional news media have been quick to feature industry lobbyists who decry the decision as detrimental, equating nuclear power with care for the environment.  No discussion is openly taking place about the likelihood of extended loss of the power grid, and hence fuel rod cooling capacity, in the wake of damage to our magnetosphere, though such discussions may be quietly underway among those most directly involved in the decommissioning decision-making process.

Three other nuclear power plants in the region are also scheduled to close: Beaver Valley in PA, Davis-Besse in OH, and Perry in OH.

Let's just hope nobody tries to sell the seeds for birdfeed.  Seriously.  Hope after the plants are finished, they are buried?

Good question.  The Weather Channel didn't elaborate, but you've inspired me to research further.  Will report back whatever I can find.

Fukushima Has Now Contaminated 1/3 of the World’s Oceans  :-[ :-[

http://woked.co/fukushima-has-now-contaminated-worlds-oceans/?utm_source=Woked+Newsletter&utm_campaign=8724657afd-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_aa89c0b28b-8724657afd-17719173

Government scientists have officially confirmed our worst fears; that Fukushima has now contaminated 1/3 of the world’s oceans.

Aside from the devastation already inflicted on our planet’s sea life, officials confirm that the contamination is still spreading.


The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) seeks to promote the tranquil usage of Nuclear Power.

In 2011, IAEA developed, along with the Regional Cooperative Agreement (RCA) Member States, a joint IAEA Technical Cooperation (TC) job in the area of the Pacific Ocean.

It was established after the Fukushima catastrophe when a tsunami triggered was by a significant earthquake on 11 March 2011.

The nuclear meltdown occurred when the power supply of the powerplant failed and disabled cooling of three Fukushima Daiichi reactors.
Fukushima has now Contaminated one-third of all sea life

As an outcome, a huge amount of radioactive waste was dumped into the Pacific Ocean.

Of no surprise, this triggered great issue to countries based around the Pacific Ocean due to the possible economic and ecological ramifications.

After leaking into the Pacific Ocean and spreading, scientists say that Fukushima has now contaminated one-third of Earths oceans.

The TC project’s aim was for that reason, to monitor the existence of radioactive compounds in the marine environment.

Someone in the alternative press last week raised an interesting question:

If nuclear power plants are able to generate so much energy, then why do we need back-up generators to keep their cores cool when the grid goes down?

Someone with knowledge can hopefully fill us in, but in the meantime, we can guess a bit.  It's my understanding that they are designed to generate power for consumers, i.e., to be sent down/up the lines to paying customers, and would require a retrofit or total rewiring to funnel that electricity for the plant's own uses totally.

The cooling, if I understand it correctly, isn't done with electricity per se, but by pumping in river water from upstream, and as it flows through the reactor bed(s), it keeps the cores cool, and at the same time is being warmed by absorbing some of the heat, and then is channeled back out into the river, by now somewhat warmer than when it entered the reactor(s).

A friend watched a special a few years ago about nuclear power plants, in which it stated that each of those radioactive rods that must be constantly immersed in water is good for only 13 days.  Then they must be replaced.  However, there is residual radioactivity, which is somewhat mislabeled as "low level" radwaste.  It's only "low" for generating electricity, but high enough to be dangerous for who-knows-how-long, and long enough that they are always looking for new storage facilities for these spent rods, still too "hot" for the landfill, for sure.
 
Maybe someone can add to this....

    Someone in the alternative press last week raised an interesting question:

I suspect that this is a misunderstanding, and is not true as stated.  A blown transformer in the distribution system does not disable the source generators.  A backup generator is needed when the generating capacity in the plant itself stops and the grid is not able to supply the power needed to keep the cooling system running.

There is a possibility that the power output of the plant can be varied only between certain limits and  cannot be turned down to the small amount needed to run its own cooling system only.  However, that would be poor design, so I expect (hope) not true.  Every power plant must be able to run in "idle" mode, altho at significant cost, perhaps.  If the grid is down, will all the employees show up for work on time every day?

So, if a strong EMF strike damages the electrical and electronic components in the power plant, then the back-up generators might not work either, and it might damage many components in the distribution system also.  This scenario should have been taken into account in the design of the system, but any/every solution will have it's limitations and vulnerabilities.
