Eight years on water woes threaten Fukushima cleanup with fish found around the waters of Hawaii and Alaska contaminated with cesium 134 the radioactive finger-print of Fukushima

Friday, 8 March 2019 The silence surrounding the Fukushima disaster recently has been deafening, it is one year in fact since any reliable information has been released from Tokyo Electric Power Co, the owners of the stricken plant. Last year, Tokyo Electric Power Co said a system meant to purify contaminated water had failed to remove dangerous radioactive contaminants. A report from Reuters today, claims … Continue reading Eight years on water woes threaten Fukushima cleanup with fish found around the waters of Hawaii and Alaska contaminated with cesium 134 the radioactive finger-print of Fukushima

Radioactive Hot Particles Still Afloat Throughout Japan Six Years After Fukushima Meltdowns

EMERSON URRY OF ENVIRONEWS FOR BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT Radioactive particles of uranium, thorium, radium, cesium, strontium, polonium, tellurium and americium are still afloat throughout Northern Japan more than six years after a tsunami slammed into the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant causing three full-blown nuclear meltdowns. That was the conclusion reached by two of the world’s leading radiation experts after conducting an extensive five-year monitoring project. Arnie Gundersen … Continue reading Radioactive Hot Particles Still Afloat Throughout Japan Six Years After Fukushima Meltdowns

It’s Finally Here: Radioactive Plume From Fukushima Makes Landfall on America’s West Coast

(EnviroNews Oregon) — Tillamook County, Oregon — Seaborne cesium 134, the so-called “fingerprint of Fukushima,” has been detected on US shores for the first time researchers from theWoods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) said this month. WHOI is a crowd-funded science seawater sampling project, that has been monitoring the radioactive plume making its way across the Pacific to America’s west coast, from the demolished Fukushima Daiichi … Continue reading It’s Finally Here: Radioactive Plume From Fukushima Makes Landfall on America’s West Coast

Scientists surprised by variability in radiation levels in different areas of Pacific Ocean

(NaturalNews) Research findings from an important exploratory cruise in June 2013 reveal radioactivity levels up to 1,000 times greater than pre-Fukushima breakdown readings. Spearheaded by the Wood Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), these findings show that radioactivity from the Fuskushima nuclear power plant is present in new and surprising places up to 600 kilometers off the coast of Japan. The findings, presented at the biennial Ocean … Continue reading Scientists surprised by variability in radiation levels in different areas of Pacific Ocean

Contaminated Japanese rivers unleash ‘perennial supply’ of radiation into Pacific Ocean

(NaturalNews) A study published in the Elsevier journal Anthropocene late last year has revealed that many of the rivers, streams and other waterways located throughout coastal Japan have inadvertently become delivery systems for transporting radioactive waste directly from the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility into the Pacific Ocean. Researchers from both France and Japan discovered this after conducting a thorough sediment and soil erosion analysis, which … Continue reading Contaminated Japanese rivers unleash ‘perennial supply’ of radiation into Pacific Ocean

Deadly levels of radiation found in food 225 miles from Fukushima: Media blackout on nuclear fallout continues

New data released by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) shows once again that the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster is far from over. Despite a complete media blackout on the current situation, levels of Cesium-137 (Cs-137) and Cesium-134 (Cs-134) found in produce and rice crackers located roughly 225 miles away from Fukushima are high enough to cause residents to exceed the annual radiation … Continue reading Deadly levels of radiation found in food 225 miles from Fukushima: Media blackout on nuclear fallout continues
