...these are just notes on spikes based on 1 min samplings...over christmas...2457km road trip

.428 uSv/hr spike in Jasper park Can. Sun.

most edmonton to calgary running .21* - .31*...378(highest)uSv/hr over 4 days travel

about the same as in june when i was there
.. most of the interior is in the .25*...to .35* uSv/hr very steady now..was more spotty in june

still find pockets in the .09* area mostly small valleys
consider if this was now 24/365..

multiply those numbers by 24 hrs and 365 days to get a yearly exposure level
...then do some research on Chernobyls evacuation levels see how you feel about your exposure levels..

Just got back to van will post once i get some base line readings again...
for anyone that cares

Excellent mash up of Fukushima news from this report...

There is a growing major distrust of the Japanese government. What is less obvious is that it has developed along age related lines that mirror where internet use stops and starts. Those who get their news from the internet or a variety of sources hold a drastically different view of the government and the accident. The ongoing whitewashing of the disaster and understating of the magnitude has been very obvious to anyone who gets their news from more than mainstream media in Japan.
Prime Minister Noda and TEPCO have declared “cold shutdown” but nobody believes it. Members of Noda’s own political party have called it fiction. A member of Noda’s cabinet cited an attempt to reassure other countries as the reason for the declaration. Experts from Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute and National Safety Commission have individually told the media the claim is doubtful. The US media isn’t buying it. The New York Times and Wall Street Journal both expressed doubt about the reality of Noda’s claim. Even mayors of the nearby towns don’t believe it. The mayors of Minamisoma and Namie both doubt the “all safe” claim of the national government. Maybe a better question would be who does believe there is a “cold shutdown”?
Even the minister in charge of the disaster is waffling on cold shutdown. Minister Hosono recently said that they don’t know where the fuel is but he is sure it is being cooled. He provided no basis for this claim.

Low dose radiation LIE!!! Fukushima still deadly on a global scale


Medical Journal Article: 14,000 U.S. Deaths Tied to Fukushima Reactor Disaster Fallout!!!!

 
Impact Seen As Roughly Comparable to Radiation-Related Deaths After Chernobyl; Infants Are Hardest Hit, With Continuing Research Showing Even Higher Possible Death Count.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An estimated 14,000 excess deaths in the United States are linked to the radioactive fallout from the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan, according to a major new article in the December 2011 edition of the International Journal of Health Services. This is the first peer-reviewed study published in a medical journal documenting the health hazards of Fukushima.

Authors Joseph Mangano and Janette Sherman note that their estimate of 14,000 excess U.S. deaths in the 14 weeks after the Fukushima meltdowns is comparable to the 16,500 excess deaths in the 17 weeks after the Chernobyl meltdown in 1986. The rise in reported deaths after Fukushima was largest among U.S. infants under age one. The 2010-2011 increase for infant deaths in the spring was 1.8 percent, compared to a decrease of 8.37 percent in the preceding 14 weeks.

Stomach flu outbreak hits 52 workers at Fukushima nuclear plant

Uhuh... it's that pesky stomach flu alright......
coincidental?

In a live press conference, Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda told the country the crippled reactors “have reached a state of cold shutdown.”

Stabilization of the reactors, whose molten cores spewed radioactive particles into the air and sea, marks the end of what the government has dubbed “Step Two” of the nuclear clean-up.

Conditions at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant are far worse than its operator or the government has admitted, according to freelance journalist Tomohiko Suzuki, who spent more than a month working undercover at the power station.
"Absolutely no progress is being made" towards the final resolution of the crisis, Suzuki told reporters at a Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan news conference on Dec. 15. Suzuki, 55, worked for a Toshiba Corp. subsidiary as a general laborer there from July 13 to Aug. 22, documenting sloppy repair work, companies including plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) playing fast and loose with their workers' radiation doses, and a marked concern for appearances over the safety of employees or the public.
For example, the no-entry zones around the plant -- the 20-kilometer radius exclusion zone and the extension covering most of the village of Iitate and other municipalities -- have more to do with convenience that actual safety, Suzuki says....

Thesis on Biological effects from Irradiation...

OK guys... way to much info to post, but i'll do 1 snip...
this is a thesis about biological radiation by Dr Rosalie Bertell.....
... it is an excellent in-depth (very long read)...
<snip>
The Seed

The future of humankind is present today within the bodies of living people, animals and plants -- the whole seedbearing biosphere. This living biosystem which we take so much for granted has evolved slowly into a relatively stable dynamic equilibrium, with predictable interactions between plants and animals, between microscopic and macroscopic life, between environmental pollutants and human health. Changes in the environment disturb this balance in two ways: first, by altering the carefully evolved seed by randomly damaging it, and second, by altering the habitat, i.e. food, climate or environment, to which the seed and/or organism has been adapted, making life for future generations more difficult or even impossible.
Although examples of maladaptation in nature and resulting species extinction abound, our focus here is on human seed, the sperm and ovum, and the effect on it and on the human habitat resulting from increasing ionising radiation in the environment.

Japan May Declare Control of Reactors, Over Serious Doubts


Tepco Via Jiji Press/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images
Workers sprayed water in March to cool the spent nuclear fuel in a reactor building at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.



TOKYO — Nine months after the devastating earthquake and tsunami knocked out cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, causing a meltdown at three units, the Tokyo government is expected to declare soon that it has finally regained control of the plant’s overheating reactors.

 

Follow @nytimesworld for international breaking news and headlines.
Reuters
Leakage from an evaporation condensation apparatus inside the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
But even before it has been made, the announcement is facing serious doubts from experts.
On Friday, a disaster-response task force headed by Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda will vote on whether to announce that the plant’s three damaged reactors have been put into the equivalent of a “cold shutdown,” a technical term normally used to describe intact reactors with fuel cores that are in a safe and stable condition. Experts say that if it does announce a shutdown, as many expect, it will simply reflect the government’s effort to fulfill a pledge to restore the plant’s cooling system by year’s end and, according to some experts, not the true situation.
If the task force declares a cold shutdown, the next step will be moving the spent fuel rods in nearby cooling pools to more secure storage, and eventually opening the reactors themselves......

Biggest radiation dose outside Fukushima zone -report

Published 9:15 PM, 13 Dec 2011
<snip>
TOKYO, Dec 13 - Residents outside the Fukushima exclusion zone were likely most exposed to radiation in the four months after the nuclear plant was wrecked by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, the local government said on Tuesday.
Their exposure of 19 millisieverts is just below the annual limit set by an international nuclear safety body, it said.
The greatest exposure was in the town of Iitate, where residents were allowed to take their time to leave, located 40 km (25 miles) northwest of the plant and outside the 20 km evacuation zone imposed by the government.

Long and tough road ahead for work to decommission Fukushima nuclear reactors

This Sept. 29, 2011 photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co. shows the No. 2 reactor building of the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okuma town, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan. (AP Photo/Tokyo Electric Power Co.)
It is expected to take more than 30 years to decommission crippled reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant, and workers tasked with the difficult mission would have to venture into "uncharted territory" filled with hundreds of metric tons of highly radioactive nuclear fuel, experts say.
After the expert committee of the Japan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC) compiled a report on procedures to decommission the No. 1 to 4 reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant on Dec. 7, the actual work is expected to move into high gear after the turn of the year. As in the case of the 1979 Three Mile Island accident, the workers would try to remove melted nuclear fuel after shielding radiation with water, a technique called a "water tomb." But the work would have to be done in a "territory where humans have not stepped into before," said a senior official of Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), the operator of the troubled Fukushima nuclear power station. The work is so difficult that it is expected to take more than 30 years to finish decommissioning the reactors.

Radioactive water leaks inside Genkai nuclear plant

TOKYO —
Radioactive water leaked inside a nuclear power plant in Saga Prefecture on Friday but did not escape into the environment, the government said Saturday, the latest problem for the country’s nuclear industry amid an ongoing crisis at another plant.

The leak at Kyushu Electric Power Co’s Genkai plant occurred as Japan continues its attempts to stabilize a tsunami-hit nuclear plant on its northeastern coast where three reactor cores melted and large amounts of radiation were released into the air and ocean.

Tetsuya Saito, spokesman for Japan’s Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, said 1.8 tons of radioactive water leaked from a pump in Genkai’s No. 3 reactor, and the cause was still under investigation.

The water was funneled into a storage area and posed no safety risk, he said....READ MORE...

Ex-Fukushima plant chief has esophageal cancer

Tokyo Electric Power Company says the former head of the disaster-stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. The company quotes his doctor as saying it is very unlikely that his disease was caused by radiation exposure.

Masao Yoshida had led the efforts to stabilize the plant after the severe accident triggered by the March 11th earthquake and tsunami. The company relieved him from his post of plant chief on Thursday last week, one week after he was admitted to hospital.read full article here...

TEPCO considers dumping more tainted water into sea

TEPCO considers dumping more tainted water into sea

Radioactive water is seen on the floor inside a water treatment facility at the Daiichi nuclear plantAFP
TOKYO —
Tokyo Electric Power Co said Thursday it was considering dumping more nuclear-contaminated water from the Fukushima power plant into the sea.
If TEPCO goes ahead with the plan it would be the second time it has deliberately released radiation-tainted water into the ocean since reactors began melting down at Fukushima in the wake of the March 11 tsunami.
“We have stored processed water in tanks, which are expected to become full by March next year,” said a TEPCO spokesman.
He said no final details—such as when, how much, or how dirty the water would be—have been established, but stressed the water would be filtered to reduce levels of radioactivity before it was dumped.
Thousands of tons of water have been pumped into reactors at Fukushima in an effort to cool the molten nuclear fuel and bring the plant to a safe shutdown.Read full article here....

The Death Of The Pacific Ocean

Fukushima Debris Soon To Hit American Shores
By Yoichi Shimatsu
Exclusive To Rense.com
Hong Kong-Based Environmental Consultant

Former General Editor Japan Times Weekly In Tokyo
12-16-11
 
An unstoppable tide of radioactive trash and chemical waste from Fukushima is pushing ever closer to North America. An estimated 20 million tons of smashed timber, capsized boats and industrial wreckage is more than halfway across the ocean, based on sightings off Midway by a Russian ship's crew. Safe disposal of the solid waste will be monumental task, but the greater threat lies in the invisible chemical stew mixed with sea water.
This new triple disaster floating from northeast Japan is an unprecedented nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) contamination event. Radioactive isotopes cesium and strontium are by now in the marine food chain, moving up the bio-ladder from plankton to invertebrates like squid and then into fish like salmon and halibut. Sea animals are also exposed to the millions of tons of biological waste from pig farms and untreated sludge from tsunami-engulfed coast of Japan, transporting pathogens including the avian influenza virus, which is known to infect fish and turtles. The chemical contamination, either liquid or leached out of plastic and painted metal, will likely have the most immediate effects of harming human health and exterminating marine animals.

Fukushima plant leaks radioactive water

Radioactive water might have found its way into the Pacific ocean and experts believe it could contain strontium

    Workers decontaminate the roof of an Okuma town office near the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Photograph: Kyodo/Reuters
    Large quantities of highly radioactive water have leaked through a crack in the wall of a treatment facility at the Fukushima power plant, and some may have founds its way into the sea, the plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power [Tepco], said.
    The firm said that as much as 45 tonnes of water had leaked through a crack in the concrete wall of a building being used to purify contaminated water that is then used to cool molten fuel in the plant's three damaged reactors.
    The firm has piled up sandbags to prevent further leaks but fears that some water may have already found its way into a gutter that connects to the Pacific ocean about 600 metres away.
    Experts believe the water could contain high levels of strontium, a beta-emitting radioactive substance that, if ingested, can cause bone cancer.
    Public broadcaster NHK reported that although caesium levels in the leaked water were low, it could contain up to 130,000 becquerels per cubic centimetre of strontium, which has a half-life of 29 years

    Found this article in the early hours this morning about the ICRP visit to the Fukushima areas to stratgies clean up of the radiation (yeah right)....

    This was the comment from them.... about the "Attitude of the people"

    In attendance were Jacques Lochard, ICRP Committee 4 Chair, Otsura Niwa, professor emeritus at Kyoto University, and researchers from Belarus, France, and Norway. Officials from local municipalities and the prefectural medical university made the presentation on the current situation in Fukushima. An official from Date City explained the situation in the city, saying "Even when we explain how to decontaminate to the residents of the city, they have this victim mentality of "TEPCO should do it", and they don't cooperate readily."

    damn right they don't.. and TEPCO SHOULD do it... self-rightious evil bastards..... i wouldn't cooperate readily either.......

    damn.. what is wrong with these people.... (Again not the populous)


    The official from Date City is complaining that the residents think they are the victims of the worst nuclear accident that the country has ever had, and that they are not doing what the officials like him tell them to do, which is to clean up the mess (radioactive materials spewed out of the broken reactors and spent fuel pools in Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant) themselves

    JAPAN TIMES

    by Peter Dyloco
    TOKYO —
    Common sense usually advises us against putting all our eggs in one basket. When it comes to investing, rarely does one invest all his/her money in a single company. Backups of important pictures and documents are usually stored on multiple hard drives to prevent the total loss of data.
    Being conversant in more than one language opens opportunities to work in a variety of environments around the world, without being limited solely to countries (or the country) in which your native language is spoken. A singular dependence on anything is usually detrimental and at best self-limiting, and it would be wise to allocate one’s resources in multiple places rather than devoting everything to a single task, skill or resource.

    Japan, however, seems to be acting against wisdom in its concentration of all functions and industry in the nation’s capital of Tokyo. Home to one out of every four Japanese, job opportunities draw individuals from across the country to the city of 13 million (40 million when the Greater Tokyo Area is considered). Most major corporations are headquartered in Tokyo and the majority of government functions are concentrated in the districts of Nagatacho and Kasumigaseki. Tokyo’s population only continues to grow, and is projected to be the world’s largest megacity at 36 million people by 2025.
    Though the country has always been rather urban-centric, the concentration of both people, industry and administration in Japan will present a significant problem to the Japanese in the years ahead. The combination of an aging population and migration to the nation’s capital may place excessive strain on the country’s deeply burdened healthcare system.

    Tokyo’s transport infrastructure systems would have to be expanded to accommodate the influx of new migrants. Housing in Tokyo, oftentimes described as nothing more than rabbit hutches, would shrink further in an effort to fit more people in the same amount of space. More cars would be on the same roads; more sewage would have to be get rid of, and more resources would have to be dedicated to Tokyo. More money would have to be spent to keep supply and capacity ahead of surging demand.
    But would this really be the smart thing to do? Is it really necessary to build new watermains, new subways and new hospitals to accommodate the growing population in a time of economic turmoil? Is it worth paving new roads and building new, grand condominiums? Does the cost of these projects really justify the over-centralization of everything in Tokyo?

    Although it makes for a great sight for tourists and is inherently convenient for those who live in it, the centralization of Japan’s population in Tokyo is both unnecessarily expensive and an inherently risky move. A new report by a government panel suggests that another tsunami may be triggered by another major earthquake within the next 30 years.

    Although memories of the March 11 earthquake are burned deep in the memories of all across Japan and around the world, the potential for an exponentially greater disaster exists with the existence of a 36-million strong coastal megacity just steps away from the Pacific Ocean. Supplies of food to Tokyo would quickly be exhausted in the event of a future food crisis, whose possibility grows more likely with every passing day. Those in the city would be among the first hit by global economic turmoil, and ministries will find it difficult giving both aid and job opportunities to the swathes of unemployed and homeless that would follow an economic recession.

    Even if everything were going according to plan, the government would have to spend an unnecessarily exorbitant sum expanding public infrastructure to accommodate the growing population despite the decline in Japan’s overall population. Ironic, isn’t it?

    The solution to Japan’s problems, perhaps, is to decentralize everything from Tokyo through providing job opportunities elsewhere. Nobody chooses to live in a rabbit hutch or crowd with hundreds of other people on a packed subway train. The only reason people choose to move to Tokyo to start with is because of job opportunity available in the nation’s capital unavailable elsewhere.
    With the Japanese economy in chronic stagnation, it makes sense to want nothing but the best for your career; if Tokyo is the only one that serves your interest, moving to Tokyo is only natural. By providing new opportunities elsewhere, people will be inclined to chase after those opportunities and settle in new places, and in turn relieve Tokyo of the needs of an increased population.
    Japan should not concentrate everything in Tokyo. Doing so will only result in unnecessary expenditures and sets the capital up for the risk of a total and complete disaster.

    Common sense usually advises us against putting all our eggs in one basket. When it comes to investing, rarely does one invest all his/her money in a single company. Backups of important pictures and documents are usually stored on multiple hard drives to prevent the total loss of data.
    Again, this was know long ago... Tokyo will slowly and sadly die.... at least the Japanese press are breaking it to the people gently....

    so here we go... scared people go and get aids check cause they feel sick from radiation.... go for aids check up... yup you got aids dude.. and yer now on our aids register.... so when you die, we can say you had aids.......

    scenario seem credible, given the lies and deception from TEPCO, and the Japanese Governnment?

    Further reports across the Northern Hemisphere of  other Governments warning the same. Now, this begs the question, how can this be so, when safe sex is far more the norm than ever before and increasing... through safe sex education....

    Effects of radiation poisoning are a severly comprimised immune system, but aquired in a different way, but still making it an A.I.D illness. (acquired through irradiation, not a virus)

    Japan faces years of food contamination fears

    (CBS News)
    The damaged nuclear power plant in Japan came a lot closer to a full meltdown last spring than first thought. The company that runs the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant said Wednesday that the radioactive core inside Reactor 1 burned through a concrete containment barrier and nearly reached the soil below.



    The nuclear plant was heavily damaged by an earthquake and tsunami back in March. And as CBS News correspondent Lucy Craft reports, many in Japan are worried about what all of this is doing to their food.

    Feeling a little off for more than you usually are?

    Nuclear radiation assaults on the environment and life on it mean that humans are increasingly susceptible to irradiation poisoning.
    Little information is being broadcasted about radiation sickness and the eight main signs of radiation poisoning. People who have been irradiated, therefore, attribute their new conditions to other than the actual cause, radiation.
    The eight most common signs of radiation
    1. Nausea and vomiting are typical early symptoms of radiation sickness. The higher the dose of irradiation, the faster nausea and vomiting appear - and the worse the overall prognosis. Irradiation is the process by which an item is exposed to radiation.
    If vomiting begins one hour after irradiation, death is probable. Very often, people suffering from radiation exposure first feel awful, but then, improve. As a rule, however, more severe symptoms occur in a few hours, days or even weeks.
    2. Nose bleeding: Noes bleeds often occurs with radiation sickness. Blood of the throat, bleeding gums or blood from the rectum are signs that radiation has impacted the body.
    Bleeding bruises occur, sometimes hematemesis.
    Bleeding is caused by the radiation reducing the number of platelets that clot blood in the body.

    3. Diarrhea, sometimes bloody: Burning, or "hits" are common.
    "Hits” along the body’s cells rapidly reproduce, including in the digestive tract cells. Irradiation causes ritation of the digestive organs that can cause diarrhea, sometimes bloody diarrhea.

    4. Severe sunburn appearance: Skin exposed to radiation can become red and covered with blisters as though strongly sunburned. In some cases, ulcers appear and in others, the skin may climb in round pattern.

    5. Hair loss: One of the most common signs of radiation poisoning is hair loss, as cancer survivors note soon after radiation treatment.
    Radiation damages hair follicles so people being radiated usually oblyseet two or three weeks.
    In some cases, the hair loss is irreparable.

    6. Fatigue and exhaustion: Radiation sickness causes weakness that feels similar to the flu.
    It is often mistaken for "having the flu."
    Decreasing the number of red blood cells results in anemia and increased risk of fainting.

    7. Mouth sores: Radiation sickness causes ulcers on lips or and in the mouth.
    Similar ulcers occur inside the esophagus, stomach and intestines.

    8. Infection susceptibility: Radiation acts on white blood cells responsible for resisting infections.
    People therefore become more susceptible to viruses, bacteria and fungal diseases

    Japan is looking to launder tsunami debris in a giant washing machine

    Officials scan people for radiation, 60 kms west of the nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture, in Koriyama - AFPto get rid of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear accident, a researcher said on Friday.
    In a scheme they hope will result in finally being able to dispose of contaminated waste left by the waves that crushed towns on the country's northeast coast, a cleaning plant will be built near the Fukushima Daiichi power station.
    Shredded waste - including the remains of houses and cars destroyed by the tsunami - will be put inside a huge water-filled drum where steel attachments will scrub away radioactive particles, the researcher said.
    The plan is a joint scheme between Tokyo-based construction company Toda Corp. and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency.
    "We, as a general contractor, have experience of cleaning soil and hope that we will eventually be able to decontaminate soil as well as debris," said a research at Toda Corp, who asked not to be named.
    He said researchers will experiment with pure water and detergents to find the best way to decontaminate the waste and hope to be able to recycle the water using a series of filters.....

    The fuel is melted and escaping into the concrete containment floor

    A new study by the Ministry of Energy announced that the RPV of Reactor 1 has failed, and over 85% of . The institute used a computer program to estimate the damage to the fuel rods, and calculate the damaged state of the fuel.The hole in the bottom of the containment vessel at Unit 1 caused by the melted fuel is estimated to by 64 cm. The results are very serious, the fuel cladding was damaged within a few hours of the earthquake, and had already begun pooling at the bottom of the RPV within 7.5 hours

    Radioactive substances from the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant have now been confirmed in all prefectures, including Uruma, Okinawa Prefecture, about 1,700 kilometers from the plant, according to the science ministry.

    The ministry said it concluded the radioactive substances came from the stricken nuclear plant because, in all cases, they contained cesium-134, which has short half-life of two years.

    Before the March 11 Great East Japan Earthquake, radioactive substance were barely detectable in most areas.......

    .......Re: RADIATION / YELLOW RAIN. WEST COAST / EVACUATION WARNING> NOV 2011
    This is what I think the yellow substance is in our rain!!!

    America wake up and smell the Plutonium…

    How much plutonium does it take
    to overdose a person?

    PLUTONIUM DIOXIDE.

    Plutonium is a highly toxic material. Attempts to deny or to obscure this fact are, we feel, irresponsible.

    Some spokespersons for AECL and for the Government of Canada have suggested that there is no danger involved in MOX transport worthy of anyone’s serious consideration.

    We feel compelled to point out that, although the probability of a severe accident that would release plutonium to the atmosphere is admittedly small, the potential health and environmental consequences of such an accident can be serious due to the extraordinary toxicity of plutonium when inhaled.

    It is for this reason alone that the United States of America has made it illegal to transport plutonium by air in US territory. Such a prohibition does not exist for any other radioactive material.

    Atomic Energy of Canada Limited has admitted, in documents submitted to Transport Canada, that in four out of eight categories of serious road transportation accidents, the MOX containers would be completely destroyed and a plume of plutonium dust would be spread downwind to a distance of about 80 kilometers.

    Transport Canada has stated — not once, but several times, in its response to public commentaries about AECL’s plans for MOX transport by road — that transporting MOX by air is much more dangerous than doing it by road because of the health dangers of inhaling plutonium dust following an accident.

    Industry and government spokespersons have insisted that120 grams of plutonium is too small an amount to raise legitimate health and environmental concerns. They have made the irrelevant observation that 120 grams of plutonium is about the size of two A-A batteries.

    Such remarks are manipulative in nature; they do not help people to weigh the risk. The important quantity is not the VOLUME or MASS of plutonium, but its TOXICITY. Based on data supplied by AECB (see letter above) we can address the toxicity question as follows:

    In principle, using AECB’s regulatory limits,
    how many ”civilians” can be overdosed
    by 100 grams of plutonium?

    0.1 micrograms can overdose One civilian
    0.1 grams can overdose One million civilians
    1 gram can overdose ten million civilians
    100 grams can overdose one billion civilians
    600 grams can overdose six billion civilians

    If there is a serious accident involving
    120 grams of plutonium (in the form of MOX),
    how many civilian overdoses could, in principle, result?

    if NONE of the plutonium is safely contained there is a potential for one billion two hundred million civilian overdoses.

    if 90 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for
    one hundred and twenty million civilian overdoses.

    if 99.9 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for one hundred and twenty thousand civilian overdoses.

    if 99.999 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for
    one thousand two hundred civilian overdoses.

    In principle, using AECB’s regulatory limits,
    how many ”atomic radiation workers” can be
    overdosed by 140 grams of plutonium?

    1.4 micrograms can overdose one atomic worker

    1.4 grams can overdose one million workers

    14 grams can overdose ten million workers

    140 grams can overdose one hundred million workers

    560 grams can overdose four hundred million workers

    If there is a serious accident involving
    600 grams of plutonium (in the form of MOX),
    how many worker overdoses could, in principle, result?

    if NONE of the plute is safely contained there is a potential for
    four hundred twenty-five million worker overdoses

    if 90 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for
    forty-two and a half million worker overdoses

    if 99.9 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for
    forty-two and a half thousand worker overdoses

    if 99.999 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for
    four hundred and twenty-five worker overdoses

    If there is a serious accident involving
    600 grams of plutonium (in the form of MOX),
    how many civilian overdoses could, in principle, result?

    if NONE of the plute is safely contained there is a potential for
    six billion civilian overdoses

    if 90 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for
    six hundred million civilian overdoses

    if 99.9 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for
    six hundred thousand civilian overdoses

    if 99.999 percent of it is safely contained there is a potential for
    six thousand civilian overdoses

    Each fuel rod contains 20% plutonium. There are 360 fuel pellets per rod. Estimated weight of pellets are 5 grams.

    There are 264 fuel rods per assembly…

    So.

    264 x 360 =95,040 (total fuel pellets per fuel assembly)

    95,040 x 5 grams = 475,200 grams of nuclear fuel…

    Divide 475,000 By 20% to find the quantity of plutonium…

    475,000g x 0.20 (20%) = 95,040 grams of plutonium… (per fuel assembly)…

    [link to my.firedoglake.com]

    We’d be lucky if we only had to worry about the spent fuel rods from a single holding pool. We’re not that lucky. The Fukushima Daiichi plant has seven pools for spent fuel rods. Six of these are (or were) located at the top of six reactor buildings. One “common pool” is at ground level in a separate building. Each “reactor top” pool holds 3450 fuel rod assemblies. The common pool holds 6291 fuel rod assemblies. [The common pool has windows on one wall which were almost certainly destroyed by the tsunami.] Each assembly holds two hundred sixty-three fuel rods. This means the Fukushima Daiichi plant may contain over 600,000 spent fuel rods.

    So top fuel pool holds 3450 assemblies, common fuel pool holds 6291 assemblies…

    Total: 9741 assemblies x 95,040g plutonium =

    total =925,784,640g plutonium (in reactor 3 alone)…

    now it gets fun…

    925,784,640g plutonium / 10% = 92,578,464g plutonium

    1.0g plutonium is equal to ten million Overdose’s…

    92,578,464g plutonium x 10 million Overdoses =’s

    Now if only 10% of the fuel in reactor 3 escaped…

    927,584,640,000,000 Overdoses Globally

    Cheers,
    Emmy…
    p.s. 1% is simply taking off 1, zero off the end...

    So if only 1% of reactor 3 was released...
    92,758,464,000,000 overdoses

    0.1% of fuel released would be
    9,275,846,400,000 overdoses...

    So in that case if only 1 millionth of the fuel was release respectably, 9,275,846 would be potentially affected.

    Though the likely hood of this is a theoretical impossibility...

    Due to the amounts of radiation released to date, one can be and should be certain that at least 10 pounds of plutonium was released in March 2011...

    2800 grams per pound (roughly). - 10 million overdoses per gram...

    28,000,000,000 Overdoses.

    In only a few months time winter will come. Pneumonia will likely be a heavy burden attributing to our already weakened lung chemistry.

    Once the snow pack sets in, Trillions of ionizing radiation particles will be brought down in a horrific nuclear winter…

    Shaking, fevers, congestion, aching bodies, & Sore throats will be our first indication that the harmful bioaccumulations of radionuclides is present…

    Eventually our immune systems will decline to a sort of paradigm shift. What once used to heal our bodies of infections and diseases, will hamper our health even further as it attempts to rid us of our radiotoxins.

    Come spring after the cold melts away ground water resting below our soil will obtain a level of MASS CONTAMINATION. Eventually leading to the nurturing of organic matter, heavily altered from its original genetic composition.

    This same contaminated organic matter will be what we use to feed our nations live stock.

    Our soils accumulative absorption of radiation; will sooner than not: plague our crops, irradiate our loved ones, and eventually cause mass pandemic.

    By February, of 2012, International governments will begin to effectively monitor the damage of 2011 alone… Issues will be raised, fingers will be pointed… Too little too late.

    We had and have a very limited amount of time to act on fukushima.

    If the reactors continue to create airborne radiation plumes; This in addition to the burning of radioactive materials. This winter will be all that I promised A NUCLEAR ONE.

    I heavily advise all enenews users, to have both food and water, as well as any other emergency supplies prior to Oct 2011. In my opinion, the coming winter will we horrific.

    Trust your own instincts. & as always cheers
