Newsweek, Jul 14, 2017: Fukushima’s Nuclear Waste Will Be Dumped Into the Ocean, Japanese Plant Owner Says — Toxic waste produced by one of the world’s worst nuclear disasters will be dumped into the sea, according to the head of [TEPCO]… Takashi Kawamura, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), told foreign media that nearly 777,000 tons of water tainted with tritium, a byproduct of the nuclear process that is notoriously difficult to filter out of water, will be dumped into the Pacific Ocean

The Telegraph, Jul 14, 2017: Fishermen express fury as Fukushima plant set to release radioactive material into ocean — Local residents and environmental groups have condemned a plan to release radioactive tritium from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean… Around 770,000 tons of highly radioactive water is being stored in 580 tanks at the site. Many of the contaminants can be filtered out, but the technology does not presently exist to remove tritium from water… Fishermen who operate in waters off the plant say any release of radioactive material will devastate an industry that is still struggling to recover from the initial nuclear disaster…

Kyodo, Jul 15, 2017: Tepco backpedals after disaster reconstruction chief knocks plan to dump tritiated water into sea — [Tepco] backed off its tritium-dumping decision Friday after disaster reconstruction minister Masayoshi Yoshino said it would cause problems for struggling fishermen… The remarks made Friday by the Fukushima native came shortly after the chairman of [Tepco] was quoted as saying that the decision… had “already been made.” After Tepco Chairman Takashi Kawamura’s remarks were widely reported, the utility scrambled to make a clarification the same day. According to Tepco’s clarification, Kawamura meant to say that there was “no problem” with the dumping plan, based on government guidelines and “scientific and technological standards.” The statement also said that no final decision had been made…

We were all damaged or were killed by this on purpose Rad dosing of the population by these Psychopaths

TOTAL GAMMA AND BETA RADIATION 2008 HIGHS No 14X
By Bob Nichols on April 22, 2017

Facing a Dying Nation
A big reason Americans know they suffered through such high Rads in 2008 is because the government counted the Beta particles radiation “excursions” from the killer reactors and nuclear weapons.

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/04/22/total-gamma-and-beta-radiation-2008-highs-no-14x/

High Gamma Count in 2008: 506,026 CPM in New York City.

High Beta Count in 2008: 4,601,174 CPM in Nashville, Tennessee.

Later the Beta Radiation Count was quietly dropped by the government just when we needed to know. We were all damaged or were killed by this on purpose Rad dosing of the population by these Psychopaths. The Rad is still going on, too.

This was premeditated murder. It is a simple murder charge under State laws. Rein in and execute these morons. This VT article is Evidence.

The Rad will continue to increase because that is what Rad does.The simple reason is some of the Uranium continues to decay to Plutonium. When that happens the Rad Count increases. Once set free, the change cannot be altered or stopped by anyone or anything.

There is nothing we can do to stop it. The Rad will take us all out. Yea, that includes all of us; plus the bugs and the fish driving around in the our air, lakes, rivers and oceans. The Rad also Nails the long lived remnants of the Dinosaurs; y’know … the birds. They don’t have a prayer.

All of us are included; none are left out. That is reality, anything else is just wishful thinking or a purposeful lie.

The possible number of readings in 2008 was 8,784. [24X366 = 8,784 Hourly Readings possible. 2008 was a Leap year.]

Good Day! This is “Your Radiation This Week ” for the Radiation High readings for the year 2008. These are the recorded Total Gamma Radiation and Beta Radiation Highs that affected people around the States.

YRTW ELE is published every two weeks on Saturday. ELE is an acronym for “Extinction Level Event.” The amount of Rad in the air Now Dooms Humanity to a quick Extinction. I can’t say it any plainer than that. The next publication dates are May 6 and May 20, 2017.

Coincidence, Right?
The massive real estate collapse started in 2008, too. Makes one think. Radiation poisoning of the movers and shakers is as good an explanation as any as to why it happened. Rad poisoning makes you stupid.

Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there.

Georgia regulators approve new round of Vogtle nuclear costs By Robert Walton


Georgia regulators approve new round of Vogtle nuclear costs
By Robert Walton • Feb. 23, 2017
Dive Brief:

The Georgia Public Service Commission unanimously approved a new round of expenses at Georgia Power’s long-delayed Vogtle nuclear plant, amounting to $141 million in the first half of 2016.
Despite “well publicized setbacks,” according to Commission Chairman Stan Wise, the project is still making progress and is within total capital costs of $3.68 billion approved by the commission in 2009.
But critics say that with the project only about a third complete, now would be a good time to ask hard questions about the plant’s future, particularly as the parent company of project contractor Westinghouse has said it is getting out of the nuclear business, and took a $6 billion writedown partially related to the Vogtle project.
Dive Insight:

Georgia regulators signed off on the 15th monitoring report related to Vogtle construction, but while the decision is relatively straightforward, it also comes at a time of turmoil for the delayed and over-budget project.

At the end of last year, regulators also approved an agreement between stakeholders that ensured customers will net $325 million in savings, and cement a deadline of 2020 for the unties to come online. Vogtle has two operating units that have been online since the late 1980s. Once operational, the third and fourth units will produce 2,200 MW of power.

“The Plant Vogtle project continues to make progress despite well publicized setbacks,” Commission Chairman Stan Wise said in a statement. “I believe that in the long run this project, when completed, will provide reliable, stable and carbon free electricity for many generations of Georgians.”

The PSC’s signoff comes the same week Toshiba, which owns a stake in Vogtle contractor Westinghouse, said it would take a $6 billion writedown related to nuclear construction in the United States. Toshiba acquired a majority stake in Westinghouse in 2006, and is managing construction of new nuclear generation at Vogtle and V.C. Summer in South Carolina. Both, however, are years behind schedule and billions over budget.

MIT Technology Review has said the writedown and Toshiba’s likely exit from the nuclear business could signal an end to new nuclear construction in the United States.

You know that I rarely make comments after posting an article written by someone else. I cannot help it this time. I just posted and article by this person about the fact that Westinghouse is going to file for bankruptcy. Maybe God is watching over us after all. We don’t need no more stinking nuclear plants! Especially not in Georgia. This plant expansion has been a fucked up idea from the start, then they charge each resident with Georgia Power electricity (between the EPA violations charges we are stuck with covering and the fees for this new nuclear piece of shit) an extra $22.00 month, per home.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but if given a choice I would have never invested in nuclear power. Hell if I am investing $22 monthly, I want to pick an investment that will give me something other than death in the end. All of the setbacks should tell people that no one knows what the fuck they are doing!

In case Georgia has not smelled the coffee already, the Georgia Public Service Commission is owned by Georgia Power. Why the hell they don’t just call it the Georgia Power Service Commission, is just to continue the fraud against Georgia citizens. How the hell is it that the residents get to pay for the EPA violations? Georgia Power, owned by Southern Company is nothing but a bunch of crooks!!!

AP: Fukushima meltdown apology: “It was a cover-up”

Fukushima meltdown apology: “It was a cover-up”

TOKYO — The utility that ran the Fukushima nuclear plant acknowledged Tuesday its delayed disclosure of the meltdowns at three reactorswas tantamount to a cover-up and apologized for it.
Tokyo Electric Power Co. President Naomi Hirose’s apology followed the revelation last week that an investigation had found Hirose’s predecessor instructed officials during the 2011 disaster to avoid using the word “meltdown.”
“I would say it was a cover-up,” Hirose told a news conference. “It’s extremely regrettable.”

TEPCO instead described the reactors’ condition as less serious “core damage” for two months after the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011, wrecked the plant, even though utility officials knew and computer simulations suggested meltdowns had occurred.

An investigative report released last Thursday by three company-appointed lawyers said TEPCO’s then-President Masataka Shimizu instructed officials not to use the specific description under alleged pressure from the Prime Minister’s Office, though the investigators found no proof of such pressure.

The report said TEPCO officials, who had suggested possible meltdowns, stopped using the description after March 14, 2011, when Shimizu’s instruction was delivered to vice president at the time, Sakae Muto in a memo at a televised news conference. In a video from that day, a company official rushes over to Muto, showing the memo and telling him that the Prime Minister’s Office has banned the word.
Government officials also softened their language on the reactor conditions around the same time, the report said.
Former officials at the Prime Minister’s Office have denied the allegation. Then-top government spokesman Yukio Edano, now secretary general of the main opposition Democratic Party, criticized the report as “inadequate and unilateral,” raising suspicion over the report by the lawyers seen close to the ruling party ahead of an upcoming Upper House election.
TEPCO has been accused of a series of cover-ups in the disaster, though the report found TEPCO’s delayed meltdown acknowledgement wasn’t illegal.
Hirose said he will take a 10 percent pay cut, and another executive will take a 30 percent cut, for one month each to take responsibility.

Fukushima: Three Years Later
The report said Shimizu’s instruction delayed full disclosure of the plant’s status to the public, even as people who lived near the plant were forced to leave their homes, some of them possibly unable to return permanently, due to the radiation leaks from the plant.
TEPCO reported to authorities three days after the tsunami that the damage, based on a computer simulation, involved 25 to 55 percent of the fuel but didn’t say it constituted a “meltdown,” even though the figures exceeded the 5 percent benchmark for one under the company manual.
TEPCO in May 2011 publicly acknowledged “meltdown” after another computer simulation showed significant meltdown in three reactors, including one with melted fuel almost entirely fallen to the bottom of the primary containment chamber.
The issue surfaced earlier this year in a separate investigation in which TEPCO reversed its earlier position that it had no internal criteria regarding a meltdown announcement, admitting the company manual was overlooked.

Seattle Times, updated Jan 28, 2016 (emphasis added): How the state is missing chances to find deadly birth defect’s causeat least 40 other mothers have lost babies to [anencephaly, which result in missing large parts of the brain] in Yakima, Benton and Franklin counties since 2010… one of the largest documented clusters of anencephaly in U.S. history… “Something’s going on and someone needs to tell us,” said [mother Sally] Garcia… Dr. Lisa Galbraith was one of the doctors… In Prosser, the obstetrician oversaw care of Garcia’s pregnancy and others affected by the disorder… “I had a total of four or five babies with anencephaly over the course of two years,” recalled Galbraith… the rate of anencephaly was much higher [than US averages]… Washington health officials… have collected no blood samples, performed no genetic tests and conducted no examination of water, soil… and have no plans to do so… In Texas, just three babies with anencephaly sparked enough outrage to overhaul the state’s birth-defects reporting system.

Seattle Times video transcriptCarlen Majnarich, funeral director: “It’s tragic… It just seems like that’s pretty much all I see on the death certificate is the same diagnosis. And nobody seems to know why. We average close to 100 families a year here in Prosser [a few miles from Hanford]. Almost all the infants that we have have died of anencephaly. It’s just what do you say?”… Sally Garcia (mother who lost her baby to anencephaly): “All these on this side [of the cemetery] are all babies… all babies, starting from right there.”

The Legal Examiner, Dec 31, 2015: [T]he strange eruption of anencephaly cases, which occurs in Washington at a rate almost 5 times as high as the national average, has highlighted a number of government policies that may actually conceal these sort of birth defect “clusters,” rather than help investigate them.

KVEW-TV, Mar 4, 2016: As of November 2015 cases of anencephaly have continued to increase with the current rate at 9.5 per 10,000 live births.

Sara Barron, MS, BSN – American Journal of Nursing, Mar 2016: In the spring of 2012 two babies without brains were born within weeks of each other at the rural hospital in Washington State where I was working… I was stunned when the delivering physician said another patient was expecting the same outcome. After speaking with colleagues at neighboring hospitals, I learned that two other babies with anencephaly had recently been born in the area. In over 30 years of nursing, I had seen only two cases of anencephaly prior to these. I called the Washington State Department of Health and reported a birth defect cluster… RISK FACTORS… Radiation exposure. Popular media and blogs have often linked the Washington State NTD cluster to the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Benton County, Washington. Although leaks from nuclear power plants have been associated with a higher rate of anencephaly and other NTDs, Washington State Department of Health investigators point out that the three counties with the highest prevalence of NTDs were both upwind and upriver of the Hanford site, making the nuclear plant an unlikely cause of the 2012 cluster.

  • KOIN: “The biggest, most toxic nuclear waste site in the Western hemisphere
  • Time: “The largest nuclear clean-up site in the western hemisphere
  • AFP: “The Western hemisphere’s most contaminated nuclear site“”
