毒の空: Nuclear nightmare at Fukushima far from over

August 15, 2011FUKUSHIMA — National policy minister Koichiro Gemba said Sunday that irradiated soil and sludge to be eliminated from areas around the stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant should be stored temporarily in Fukushima Prefecture before final disposal measures are worked out. Gemba, who doubles as chief policymaker of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, told reporters, “We should store the soil and sludge somewhere in the prefecture as an interim measure. The national government should be responsible” for the issue. Gemba made the remarks after visiting temporary housing in the prefecture for evacuees who were affected by the March earthquake and tsunami.
Koichiro Gemba made the comment as the problem of how to handle enormous amounts of polluted soil and sludge looms as cleanup work is expected to get into full swing when the government soon lifts an evacuation advisory outside the 20-km exclusion zone around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. The irradiated matter removed from the ground should be first accommodated within local municipalities, after which it should be condensed and put away temporarily at storage facilities to be set up somewhere in Fukushima by the government, he said. –Japan Times

    Unfortunately, it will never be over in many, many life times, in hundreds of thousand of years. For both Japan and the whole planet. That is if the Earth continues in this dimension.

    Yes, to hold the whole planet in our hearts, and to love God. There is nothing else for me to do, or be.

    May you all be loved or love today. If not I send you my love, Louise

  6. I am sorry for victims of nuclear weapons, their tests, Chernobyl and Fukushima, but mostly for the Atomic Age and it’s poisons and corrupting centralization of physical and political power. Thanks to all nations that are abandoning the Atomic Age.
    Will we wake up and realize the full horror of what we are doing as we are about to die, or will we die suddenly and cruelly, blissful in our denial?

    A spike in radioactive sulfur from the damaged Japanese nuclear plant was detected in California in late March, but researchers say it posed no threat to health.

    While the amount was higher than normal background levels, it remained small, said Mark Thiemens of the University of California, San Diego.

    “The levels we recorded aren’t a concern for human health. In fact, it took sensitive instruments, measuring radioactive decay for hours after lengthy collection of the particles to precisely measure the amount of radiation,” said Thiemens. He is lead author of a report on the findings being published in Tuesday’s edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant was damaged in a tsunami on March 11 and extremely low amounts of radioactive iodine later showed up in milk sampled in the U.S. states of California, Colorado, Connecticut and Massachusetts over the following weeks. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency officials said the levels were so minuscule they were not harmful to public health. EPA scaled back its monitoring efforts to routine levels in May.

    The new report focused on sulfur measurements taken at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California, March 28-April 1.

    While there was no threat from the radiation, Thiemens explained in an email that tracking the sulfur helps researchers understand the movement of particles in the atmosphere.
