434,000 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 from Shimeji mushroom in Minamisoma city / 4,340 times much as "safety limit"

↑ Lepista nuda [Wikipedia]


434,000 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137 was measured from mushroom in Minamisoma city Fukushima, according to the municipal government.

The mushroom was “Lepista nuda”. The sample was collected for the self-consumption in a forest. It was tested this October.


The contamination level is 4,340 times much as Japanese food “safety” limit. The specific ratio of Cesium-134/137 wasn’t announced.

They also measured 45,700 Bq/Kg, 44,000 Bq/Kg, and 38,200 Bq/Kg from other mushroom samples.

Contamination still remains high level in mushrooms.




I reject the international mass media to read this site without taking a contact with me.I know some of the mass media corporations read Fukushima Diary to understand the trend so they know when to report about Fukushima as if they were independently following it for a long time.
In short, they make you individual readers pay for this site while they pay nothing, and when they publish the “authorized news”, you pay for the “secondhand news”, which is nothing new for us.
This site is free for the individual readers, but not for corporations.In the world, this site is nearly the only source about Fukushima. I came here alone without any supporting organizations, background or anything. I’m not pleased to be exploited by the corporations that didn’t even properly report about Fukushima when 311 took place.

I demand them to take a contact with me BEFORE reading this site whatever the purpose is.

Lepista nuda, tricholome pied bleu [Wikipedia fr]

Selon la municipalité, 434 000 Bq/kg de césium 134/137 ont été relevés dans des champignons de la commune de Minamisoma dans Fukushima.
Les champignons sont des “Lepista nuda“. L’échantillon provient d’un ramassage privé pour consommation personnelle. La mesure date d’octobre dernier.

Ce niveau de contamination est 4 340 fois plus élevé que la “limite de sécurité alimentaire” japonaise.  La proportion particulière en césium 134/137 n’est pas communiquée.
Ils ont également relevé 45 700 Bq/kg, 44 000 Bq/kg et 38 200 Bq/kg dans d’autres échantillons de champignons.

La radioactivité des champignons reste très élevée.


J’interdis à la grande presse internationale de lire et d’utiliser ce site sans préalablement prendre contact avec moi. Je sais que certaines grandes sociétés de presse lisent le Fukushima Diary pour comprendre la tendance et trouver quand rendre compte de la situation de Fukushima comme s’ils la suivaient indépendamment depuis longtemps.
En résumé, ils vous font payer à vous, simples lecteurs, ce qu’ils prennent gratuitement dans ce site et lorsqu’ils publient des “nouvelles de première main” vous payez pour des “nouvelles resucées”, qui n’ont rien de nouveau pour nous.
Ce site est gratuit pour les lecteurs individuels, pas pour les sociétés. Ce site est pratiquement la seule source au monde sur Fukushima. Je viens ici seul sans aucun soutien d’organisation quelconque, ni références, ni rien. Je n’apprécie pas de me faire exploiter par ces sociétés qui n’ont même pas été foutues de relater correctement ce qui se passait à Fukushima quand a eu lieu le mois de mars 2011.

Je leur demande de prendre contact avec moi AVANT de lire ce site dans quelque but que ce soit.

  1. THIS information in very very important. fungas is one of the most powerful forces in this planet. there is fungas that completly turn oil soaked soil into futtile soil.

    this spiecies of mushrooms needs to be studies to see how to modify it to absorb more radioactive matierials
    that gene then can be transplanted into other fast growing short lived plants with this genome in it.
    and there is a possibility that chernobal and fukashima could become livable again in next 1000 years

      1. Apples and Oranges are quite different.

        The health impacts of various radionuclides vary quite drastically.

        No ionizing radiation, of any sort, beyond 15 minutes of sunlight per week, conveys any positive health benefit. If the choice were available, life on earth would be safer and longer, if the natural ratio of stable potassium to radioactive potassium were much higher. Naturally occurring radon is similarly a killer.

        The man-made, fission products of radiocesium, radioiodine and radiostrontium are extremely dangerous to humans and other species.

        1. Then you guess wrong, and DELIBERATELY LIE AGAIN.

          The Beta Radiation from the HIGHLY concentrated, polluted water at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station is shooting the workers from every direction, as is the Gamma Radiation.

          With Respect to a 4 liter puddle (or a 50,000 liter pond) of a Beta Emitter in aqueous solution. The Beta from the bottom of the puddle is somewhat shielded. The Beta emitted from the SURFACE of the polluted puddle will stream out for its range in air.

          Evaporation and salt spray is directly entering the eyes, nose, mouth and lungs.

          The Fukushima Workers are under radioactive assault from every direction.


          Bill Duff

            1. You must be a ‘Dumb Swede’, as my Norwegian Lutheran friends, say from time to time.

              But I, unlike them, do not consider ALL Swedes to be Dumb Swedes, like the HHN.

            2. Texan,

              I consider my nationality to be Texan.

              It is unclear, at present, that the formerly ‘united states’ remain the legitimate nation state, formerly known as ‘The United States of America.

              The recent dissolution of constitutional governance within the formerly ‘united states’; is a deal-breaker.

              ‘We the People’ and the various states, territories, colonies, plantations, and commonwealths, have reverted (not entirely by choice) to conditions of prior governance, in the ongoing collapse of the former Republic of the USA.

  2. Garcon,

    Please take a plate of these mushrooms to the lovely and erudite Ann Coulter, at the head table and her escort Dr. Brainwasher (Shunichi Yamashita).

    They are smiling, and have indicated that there will be no complications. It seems a SHAME to waste such fine mushrooms.

    I have heard similar bogus-claims of poison immunities among some whacko, snake-handling religious groups.


    Bill Duff

  3. Thank you for any information about food. For us living in Japan, avoiding internal exposure is our only hope, as every time it rains or snows the Geiger counter goes up. I stopped eating seafoods and don’t buy food from supermarkets cause I can’t trust the labels. Once a week I drive into the countryside and buy from farmers. Tastes better too!
    Let us know any information about food.
    Thanks as always.

    1. When Chernobyl fallout landed on my country, the government tried to control and limit the sales of cow products and sheep meat, especially from the open mountain areas. It was common for small farmers to lie and cheat about the amount of radiation in their products because, lets be honest, the alternative was to lose their entire income. So they had ‘safe’ meat or sheep prepared when government testers came along to approve or deny their right to sell.
      Bring your detector with you when visiting smaller sellers, as they may not have one, and they may not be entirely truthful with exposure information.

      1. Lie Detector

        Beta Radiation, from radiocesium and radiostrontium, is difficult (impossible) to detect in wet concentrations (like meat). Water acts as a Beta Particle SHIELD.

        The instruments and processes required to TEST farm products for Beta Radiation are not practical for farmer’s market and consumers.

        Dry weight (dehydrated) food can be checked. But that kind of defeats the Farmer’s Market model.

        More HHN lies, deceptions and bullshit.


        Bill Duff

    2. Worse for Japanese and Ukrainians

      Food and beverages produced on Honshu Island, Japan should be considered as hazardous substances. This sad fact is even more critical to the HIGHLY exposed population of Honshu Island, (or Chernobyl) than for distant populations that may have much lower radioisotope dietary uptakes and accumulated exposures.


      Bill Duff

  4. Simple,

    Order your food and beverages from: Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina and/or South Africa. If the food came from Honshu, Island Japan, you are playing ‘Russian Roulette’.

    Change the HVAC (HEPA) filters regularly in your home and automobile regularly.

    Buy a Reverse Osmosis water unit for your home.

    Get your passport and visas in order, and flee for your life.


    Bill Duff

  5. For what it’s worth, basidiocarps like these could be useful in concentrating radioactive contamination and then picking them to more easily move the radioactive material off-site.

    “Radiocaesium activity concentrations in the fruit-bodies of macrofungi in Great Britain and an assessment of dietary intake habits.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10466232

    “Radiocaesium and radiostrontium uptake by fruit bodies of Pleurotus eryngii via mycelium, soil and aerial absorption.” http://www.researchgate.net/publication/12350264_Radiocaesium_and_radiostrontium_uptake_by_fruit_bodies_of_Pleurotus_eryngii_via_mycelium_soil_and_aerial_absorption

    And this species has been isolated as particularly useful in radioactive mycoremediation https://www.google.com/search?q=Gomphidius+glutinosus

    Sorry you’re still dealing with this.

  6. I hope that no one uses water that has filtered through this soil, before it leads to a ‘clean mountain stream’ and then into a public water supply. Bill is right, a reverse osmosis water unit seems a virtual requirement in such conditions. Sad, and Abe simply awaits ‘his’ Olympics.

  7. Traditionally a great edible mushroom. The question that I have: Is any fungi capable of transforming dangerous radiation into a safe product. Can fungi neutralize radiation. I doubt it. Converting petrochemicals to their basic chemical components can be done by fungi, but the rendering of radioiactive material into something benign doesn’t seem posible

    1. Forest mushrooms here in Sweden still contain detectable amounts of Cesium from Chernobyl, although I think the real danger is long past.

      1. Bavaria (Germany) still bans wild pork (boar) for human consumption. Hunters are encouraged (required) to exchange their game animals for safer pork or cash.

        Wild swine are efficient gatherers of truffles, mushrooms and other fungus. They relish these foods, much as humans do and can smell where to dig. That is why bioaccumulation and bioconcentration are challenging threats to public health. There are a million pathways to your dinner table.

        I have not read much recently about Sweden radiocesium concentrations versus other Western European nations, from the Chernobyl disaster.

        Little (nothing) stated by the Hammer Headed Nail, to date has been remotely accurate. There is little (no) reason to expect the leopard to change its spots. There is similarly no reason to rely upon ANY statements from pathological liars.


        Bill Duff

        1. Go look it up. You are good at that. Maybe post some links.

          I asked you in the other post to point out one single thing I have said which is incorrect. But you have not done that. “little (nothing) has been remotely accurate”. go on then, I know I can point out an awful lot of inaccuracies in your posts.

          1. And by the way, sweden was the one who noticed the radiation coming from chernobly first, and raised the alarm.
            Workers going INTO a nuke plant here kept setting off the alarm (mostly their shoes). they first thought they had a leak but then realised it was coming from some international source and it got traced to chernobly. It was only then the russians made some international public statement.
            This is why iethink bills vast radionuclide storm of 2011 is just a total crock of shit. If its enough to turn the skies in the US orange, its probably enough that SOMEONE besides Bill would have noticed. You know, someone smart enough to operate a detector.

            1. Chernobyl was 1 nuclear reactor

              Fukushima was 3 nuclear reactors and quite possibly some of the contents of the Unit-3 Spent Fuel Pool.

              The FDU-3 reactor detonation was presumably an atomic explosion and the dirtiest bomb in human history.

              Fukushima was worse than Chernobyl ‘from the get-go’.

              And the Fukushima disaster is ongoing.


              Bill Duff

              1. Fukushima has contarnment, chernobyl did not. And chernobyl is ongoing, the sarcophagus is crumbling apart and needs replacing. The fuel pool explosion may have been a prompt criticality like chernobyl, but it did not result ? a graphite fire which threw heated radionuclides high into the atmosphere, and blanket neighbouring countries in radiation, despite your orange sky theory which only has a few internet weirdos providing eyewitness testamony as proof.
                Apples and oranges, and I didn’t think you could get stupider, but idiots never fail to surprise I guess.

                1. More continuous & plagiarized Niall lies

                  Fukushima HAD crappy General Electric Mark-1 pseudo-containment, which FAILED in 100% of the operating nuclear reactors: FDU-1, FDU-2 & FDU-3.

                  No containment at Fukushima,

                  The Chernobyl sarcophagus is being rebuilt and will require periodic repair, replacement and reconstruction, probably for centuries. So also, the Fukushima tents, lean-to crane supports and structures will require CONSTANT monitoring, repair and replacement for extended, indefinite times.

                  Eternal vigilance is required,

                  Graphite fires at Chernobyl and zircalloy fires at Fukushima, a distinction without a difference.

                  Fires everywhere at Fukushima

                  More Niall Lies, but sufficient light has been shed to demonstrate the continued pattern of plagiarized, lies.


                  Bill Duff

                    1. Whatever everyone ELSE may be, think, say and/or do …

                      Niall’s trollish, stupid, nescient, plagiarizing, lying self … is outed.

                      Stomping a cockroach is not much of an effort. Recognizing a stomped cockroach is even less effort. The interested reader is forewarned and forearmed.


                      Bill Duff

          2. The Hammer Headed Nail, can kiss my ruddy arse

            The interested reader can find excerpts and the disambiguated link to the der Spiegel article about

            Radioactive European Wild Swine,

            Which is a separate subject from European Swine such as Niall. Not all Swedes are swinish. IMHO


            Bill Duff

            1. That is abusive behaviour, and an uncalled for personal attack. I hope you get banned. And I am not swedish.

              1. Niall is stupid, and a liar, whatever his ancestry/nationality, and Niall, the liar, claims to be in Sweden.

                It is therefore clear that Niall is a Dumbass IN Sweden, and therefore potentially a Dumb Swede.

                It was made clear that I do not personally concur with the somewhat prevalent, and oft-repeated Norwegian term for Swedes.

                We shall confirm that Niall, the dumbass, STEALS his lies.


                Bill Duff

              2. Whiny little Bitch,

                Niall, you are a whiny little bitch; as well as a liar and lie thief.

                You thoroughly belong in the bottom cage, of the pigshit feed station.


                Bill Duff

                  1. Emotion is irrelevant,

                    Stomping a cockroach or chopping off a rattlesnake head is a deliberate action, not an emotional state of mind.

                    Taking out ‘Team Nuke’ whores is a deliberate action, not an emotional state of mind.

                    Festive, vengeful, spite, indifferent, callous, sorrowful … It matters not.

                    The nihilist, Malthusian, Machiavellian, Green, Watermellon, Greed, Stupidity, foolish and/or trollish motivations of the various ‘Team Nuke’ members is similarly insignificant.


                    Bill Duff

            2. Niall eats, breathes and lives in recycled, concentrated pigshit from Theodore M. Besmann, 7 cages up; who is a part-time moonlighter for Potomac Communications Group with ‘Team Nuke’.

              The interested reader has been notified of the SOURCE of the intense odor.

              Durante Degli Alighieri authored a different representation of ‘The Lowest Dregs of Hell’ in ‘Inferno’, book 1 of La Divina Commedia.


              Bill Duff

        2. Target Audience:

          My target audience is the interested reader, not the strident lying advocates from ‘Team Nuke’.

          There is no intent to convince these dangerous, lying pieces of dogshit, that they are … what they are.

          The defendant in a criminal prosecution, is seldom convinced, even with a plea-bargain, nolo contendere or conviction. The judge, jury, warden, executioner, governor, appeals courts and citizenry are convinced. Then the guilty sonofabitch is executed, denial, lies, begging and all.


          Bill Duff

    2. No natural life form on Earth has a biological process to make radioactive substances stable, to the best of my present recollection.

      Some radionuclides are concentrated or diluted biologically, but in the open air, or in a human body, their radioactive properties, such as half life, and particle energies are unchanged.

    3. DO NOT BELIEVE in this HOAX.
      Mushrooms can not transform radioactive atoms in non radioactive.
      Radioactive Atoms have their own natural laws.
      Not changeable.

      1. Mostly true:

        If I may offer two slight physics corrections.

        Bioconcentration and bioaccumulation do occur for radio-cesium and radio-strontium; but NOT for tritium or tritiated water.

        Some PHYSICAL changes in radioactive characteristics HAVE, if memory serves, been observed in NON-biological, physical configurations. More particularly, some Beta Emitters, upon encapsulation in conductive and/or superconductive media, may accelerate their half-life. I have NOT studied this and/or conducted the experiments. However it SEEMS PLAUSIBLE that the conditions for electron (Beta Particle) emission may be optimized and the Beta Particle energy probability distribution reduced.

        This would likely not be exploitable in the circumstance of a dispersed nuclear fallout situation, such as the Fukushima nuclear disaster.


        Bill Duff

        1. Radiocesium is bioaccumulated and/or bioconcentrated in biological processes in certain mushrooms, grasses, sunflowers and up the various food chains.

          One CAN extract radiocesium from the soil, to a limited extent, by planting mushrooms, lawns and sunflowers.

          The contaminated plant mass will then have a more concentrated level of radiocesium, which can be buried in a less-hazardous location than a schoolyard, backyard or family farm.

          As indicated above, this will NOT work with tritium.


          Bill Duff

        2. Any isotope that that decays via electron capture can have their half life affected by changes in the orbital electron configuration. That doesn’t apply to any of the significant isotopes in fukushima fallout. And it’s only a few percent effect in isotopes it does apply to.

  8. How far from the Fukushima site is that? I tried Google Maps and the closest I can figure is about 15 miles. Is that about right?

  9. I wish that mushrooms and boars could be used to collect, isolate and PROPERLY dispose of at least the radio-Cesium.

    The honorable Helen Dawson may have some further ideas, including how to naturally collect the Strontium for proper isolation and disposal. I loved her idea of using mussles to collect radionuclides in contaminated water storage.

    Sadly, emissions likely need to be brought to at least a relative halt first from the Fuku-goo ‘nukular’ plant.

    If only there was a biological survey possible there. TEPCO might be inadvertantly buring some possibly viable ideas.

  10. Perhaps Japan can amend their new secrecy law to make it illegal for things that are radioactive to cause any harm. With one stroke of a pen, Abe can make everything safe. Just like the magic mesh walls, that do not allow radiation into the Pacific. It seems to contain as much logic as anything TEPCO has done so far.

  11. Salt Spray

    Vast quantities of Radiocesium and RadioStrontium, from the ONGOING Fukushima 311 Nuclear Disaster have entered, and continue to flood into the Pacific Ocean. The direct fallout happened nearly 3 years ago. The groundwater and contaminated steams, and rivers continues unabated.

    RadioCesium and RadioStrontium are IN the salt spray from the Pacific Ocean. This salt spray RECONCENTRATES the RadioCesium and RadioStrontium when it dries on buildings, cars, streets, bridges and children’s bicycles.

    Honshu Island Japan is a death-trap. And Hokkaido and other nearby islands are ‘none too safe’.

    TEPCO, Japan, IAEA, Barack Obama and the rest of ‘Team Nuke’ CONTINUE to deceive the endangered Nipponese citizenry about this ‘Clear & Present Danger, which stalks them from every direction.


    Bill Duff

    1. Japanese children breathing salt air are inhaling radiocesium and radiostrontium.

      A child rides a bicycle, crusted with radioactive contaminated ocean salt. The child puts their fingers in their mouth, or nose.

      Radiocesium is also DIRECTLY absorbed (adsorbed) through the skin and through cuts and scratches.

      Sandpiles, toys left outdoors, grass on soccer and baseball fields are poisoning Japanese children with CONTINUOUS infusions of hazardous nuclear substances.

      And ‘Team Nuke’ is lying and arguing about TRIVIA, even on this Fukushima Diary Blog, where we KNOW BETTER.

      This is why I think (IMHO) that violent reprisals against ‘Team Nuke’ have become essential to human survival, particularly on Honshu Island, Japan. They will not cease to LIE, while they ‘draw breath’, again IMHO, from 7,000 miles away.


      Bill Duff

      1. I’d suggest first buying a detector, to see if any of that is true or not. but you wouldn’t understand that, considering you think an orange sky is radioactive enough to warrent cutting down your food intake, yet failed to bother getting a detector.

        1. The Japanese citizenry formed an independent radiation monitoring society and began publishing their findings about 2.5 years ago. This was in response to the bogus, bullshit, pseudo-scientific propaganda issued by the Japanese Government.

          If memory serves, the recently passed ‘State Secrets’ law passed by the Japanese Diet (parliament) now criminalizes such independent measurement and publication.

          When a government becomes destructive to these ends,

          It is the right (duty & necessity) of the citizenry to abolish that abomination. See the collected works of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Paul Revere and others for various essays on the subject.


          Bill Duff

          1. If memory serves, that law applies to people leaking national security secrets, not making public observations. Anyone know any more about this potential abuse of the gag law?

    A Quarter Century after Chernobyl: Radioactive Boar on the Rise in Germany

    By Charles Hawley, July 30, 2010 – 03:29 PM SPIEGEL

    As Germany’s wild boar population has skyrocketed in recent years, so too has the number of animals contaminated by radioactivity left over from the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown. Government payments compensating hunters for lost income due to radioactive boar have quadrupled since 2007.

    ccording to the Environment Ministry in Berlin, almost €425,000 ($555,000) was paid out to hunters in 2009 in compensation for wild boar meat that was too contaminated by radiation to be sold for consumption. That total is more than four times higher than compensation payments made in 2007.

    1. it is forbidden to sell meat containing high levels of radioactive caesium-137 — any animals showing contamination levels higher than 600 becquerel per kilogram must be disposed of. But in some areas of Germany, particularly in the south, wild boar routinely show much higher levels of contamination. According to the Environment Ministry, the average contamination for boar shot in Bayerischer Wald, a forested region on the Bavarian border with the Czech Republic, was 7,000 becquerel per kilogram. Other regions in southern Germany aren’t much better.

      Germany’s Atomic Energy Law, which regulates the use of nuclear energy in the country, mandates that the government in Berlin pay compensation to hunters who harvest contaminated animals.

      1. Contaminated Wild Pig

        Wild boar are particularly susceptible to radioactive contamination due to their predilection for chomping on mushrooms and truffles, which are particularly efficient at absorbing radioactivity. Indeed, whereas radioactivity in some vegetation is expected to continue declining, the contamination of some types of mushrooms and truffles will likely remain the same, and may even rise slightly — even a quarter century after the Chernobyl accident.

        “In the regions where it is particularly problematic, all boar that are shot are checked for radiation,” reports Andreas Leppmann, from the German Hunting Federation. There are 70 measuring stations in Bavaria alone.

        In addition, for the last year and a half, Bavarian hunters have been testing ways to reduce the amount of caesium-137 absorbed by wild boar. A chemical mixture known as Giese salt, when ingested, has been shown to accelerate the excretion of the radioactive substance. Giese salt, also known as AFCF, is a caesium binder and has been used successfully to reduce radiation in farm animals after Chernobyl. According to Joachim Reddemann, an expert on radioactivity in wild boar with the Bavarian Hunting Federation, a pilot program in Bavaria that started a year and a half ago has managed to significantly reduce the number of contaminated animals.

        1. If you google for ‘irish meat controls after chernobyl’ or similar, you’ll find an interesting pdf from the rpii about all the controls and measures that were implemented after chernobyl. I tried to paste a link but it was too diFficult to do on my phone. Do look it up, you’d like it.

          1. If memory serves, that Irish claptrap was a ‘Team Nuke’ public relations sham. I recall chasing the link down, perhaps in about 2011.

            Not worth the read, except as a ‘Lie Detector’ training exercise.

            Nothing suggested by the LYING POS, Nihilist Niall has ANY redeeming social value, whathefucksoever.

  13. Recycled Pig Shit,

    Most ‘Team Nuke’ propaganda AKA: hog dung, pig shit … sources from a single propagandist. If memory serves he lives and works near Oak Ridge Tennessee and is routinely quoted, without attribution. We could call that individual ‘Top Hog’ and he is in the ‘top cage’. The name of this ‘Top Hog’ has been published, but momentarily eludes recollection. ‘Seven (7) hog cages are stacked vertically, one above the other.

    ‘Top Hog’ eats a normal diet and produces dung, which falls into the feed trough of ‘2nd Hog’, as his diet. The Oak Ridge propagandists spews his fecal propaganda into various ‘Team Nuke’ publications.

    ‘2nd Hog’, defecates into the feed trough of ‘3rd Hog’. Niall is in the bottom hog cage. Niall cheerfully feeds on concentrated Pig Shit and Propaganda.

    By the time Niall takes a dump, of his lying pigshit, on this blog, interested readers have seen the material innumerable times before.

    1. plagiarism

      Oh and it is fair to state that EVERY gawdamn lying word, blogged by Niall is not properly attributed to its source.

      Every recycled, unattributed pile of propaganda is de facto plagiarism.

      Thus, in every way, and in innumerable levels and nuances,

      Niall is a total, gawdamn liar.

      1. Is that all you can come up with? I expected better. You are not gonna beat team nuke by calling people names like a little angry baby.

        1. Sufficient,

          Repeated demonstrations that NIALL is a pathologic liar, the source of his dangerous lies about matters affecting personal and public health, and that NIALL STEALS his lies, without attribution of his propaganda source.

          That seems more than sufficient, to EXCLUDE any and every comment ever made and/or subsequently to be made, by NIALL, from consideration.

          The banality of evil has been discussed elsewhere. Perhaps we could discuss the evil of banality, as it applies toward NIALL, however the stupid, trollish arsehole does not ‘rate’ such detailed evaluation.

  14. Ted Besmann is the ‘Top Hog’ in this pile of recycled pigshit.

    http www austinchronicle com/ (news/2004-04-16/206880/)

    Theodore M. Besmann, (has been) an Oak Ridge employee since 1985. Beginning at least as far back as 1978, he has had published under his own or others’ names dozens of nuclear love songs in newspapers across the country, from The New York Times to the San Francisco Chronicle to The Washington Post to the Houston Chronicle to The Christian Science Monitor (“Nuclear: The Environment’s Friend,” appeared in the Monitor in 1994).

    He moonlights as a paid consultant to Potomac Communications Group, the Washington PR firm that works for the Nuclear Energy Institute, the nuclear industry’s stentorian voice and lobby.

    Decommissioning the nuclear lobby’s phony op-ed campaign

    Tracing the daisy chain of nuclear PR recycling

    On March 4, the Austin American-Statesman published an op-ed article by Sheldon Landsberger, professor of nuclear engineering at UT. …

    Strong words. But they’re not Landsberger’s. Nor are the other 633 words that appeared in the Statesman that morning under Landsberger’s byline. “It was something which was written for me,” Landsberger told me later on the phone. “I agreed with it, I went over it, read it a couple of times, took all of 15, 20 minutes.” The op-ed was ginned up, assembly-line style, by a Washington, D.C., public relations firm that the nuclear power lobby retains to tilt public opinion

    Landsberger says he doesn’t know who actually wrote his column. He received it, via e-mail, from an employee at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. (Landsberger emphasized that he believed the employee, whom he wouldn’t name, sent him the column as a private citizen, rather than on behalf of the national lab.) Nor was this the first time; when it comes to deceiving newspaper readers on behalf of a stealth nuclear lobbying campaign, Landsberger is an acknowledged recidivist. “I’ve been doing this four or five years,” he says. “They [op-ed columns] come from Oak Ridge maybe two or three times a year, particularly when there’s a hot-button issue.” Landsberger’s accomplice is Theodore M. Besmann, an Oak Ridge employee since 1985.

  16. Mushrooms DO NOT CLEAN radiation and DO NOT EAT it.
    Theys store it as everything else.

    Here are the belarusian Chernobyl Mushrooms, latest data, independent measurements from BELRAD, Minsk:
    Latest, independent Food measurements Strontium 90 & Cesium 137. Highest radiation in Minsk (center on map), although state says it’s clean. A lie. Official propaganda map:

    Official BELARUSIAN radiation maps (from the textbook, and not real measurements): http://www.rbic.by/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=256&Itemid=86

    “According to calculation models used by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), the European Union today accepts that current permissible value limits will lead to at least roughly 150,000 additional cancer deaths in Germany alone each year as a consequence of radiation exposure from food” http://www.foodwatch.org/en/what-we-do/topics/radiation/more-information/foodwatch-report-calculated-fatalities-from-radiation/

    Strontium 90 in Baby Food. Belarusian limit of Strontium 90 in milk was 3,7 becquerels per kilogram. Now, for the neighboring countries: 20 BECQUEREL per KG! http://euroradio.fm/stroncyy-u-dzicyachym-harchavanni-mytny-sayuz-dazvoliu-peravyshenne-u-13-razou

    2013: Belarusian Potatoes: Strontium 90 -> 40,5 Becquerel per Kg.
    Cesium 137 smaller than 4,28 Becquerel per Kg.

    This is a small “village” in south central Belarus, it’s called “Good Will”: 15 Curie per km² (555,000 becquerel per m²) Chernobyl irradiated area “Dobra Wolya“ – this is the map (Strontium 90 & Cesium 137 & Americium 241): http://www.rbic.by/images/stories/articles/files/Luninetsky-Map.pdf (middle, the large spot): http://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2012/04/21/good-will-is-irradiated/

    BELARUS: At 15 curies per square kilometer from every square meter radiate 550,000 becquerel. For comparison: Before Chernobyl cesium load was about 1,000 becquerel per square meter as a result of above-ground nuclear weapons tests. 15 curies per square kilometer is not the maximum value: Hundreds of villages are contaminated with 60 or more Curie. 147 Curie in Tschudjany, in Nowojelna 390 Curie (this corresponds to 14.4 million becquerels per square meter). All these villages – a total of more than 500 – are still inhabited. http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/print/d-13499932.html

    Another example: “The two Belarusian villages Lumatschi and Tulgowitschi lie under a layer of plutonium, which emits at 5.4 curies. Plutonium” http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/print/d-13499932.html

    1. The POINT of bio-remediation,

      The POINT of bioremediation is to remove a radioisotope, such as Cs-137 from cropland, by mushrooms, grass or sunflowers. Then to BURY the mushrooms, deep underground in a less dangerous place. After many years of bioremediation, PERHAPS the farm can be restored to usefulness. One would not eat the mushrooms or feed them to any creature.

      Flooding the contaminated field with water and then filtering out the radio-cesium, would accomplish the SAME end-result.

      1. Scarificing Nature is NOT an option.
        And the PROBLEM is NOT the SOLUTION.
        Accept that.
        Belarus tried all that, believe me, I know from my long
        Chernobyl Work. Form experts, liquidators, I know.

        1. Nature,

          Nature, in the vicinity of Chernobyl/Fukushima is ALREADY toast. The former USA, Great Britain, France and Germany have been able, at great expense, to RESTORE regions, rivers, farms and lakes to health. A great deal of this was accomplished by the ‘Superfund’ program in the formen USA. Restoration requires SOUND technologies, NOT ‘watermelon-political science’.

          The former U.S.S.R. (CCCP) was an environmental nightmare. This should serve as a warning against ‘Watermelons’ and their crack-pot schemes. Communist China has been and remains an environmental nightmare. The ChiComs would be ‘Watermelon Lesson Two’.

          The failing USSR and the former republics have not been very diligent or capable in environmental restoration.

  17. Reed beds on the the coastline where the salt inundation from the tsunami and littoral zones from estuaries is a bioremediation possibility, in terms of trapping salt spray.

    I think it is geoblaster which is the bacteria that does a biological version of ‘electroplating’ with heavy metals.
    The thing with bioremediation is to immobilise the stuff thats spread around into a small containerful of highly radioactive waste that can be stored, and not re-enter the foodchain.

    The commercial possibilities are being eyed off
    Not content with 2 ecological catastrophies, this company is cheerfully suggesting a giant genetically engineered reed swamp, to breed giant mutant cane toads and Godzilla eventually….(sarcasm)

    1. Correction: geobacter bacteria not geoblaster

      There are several strategies for bioremediation relevant to the Fukushima site in this short presentation.

      Reedbed examples for the capture of Uranium by rhizofixation, that is using the rhizomes on the reeds to filter uranium out of water
      in “Stakes and Limitations of Bioremediation” Dr A. Vavasseur
      EU Scientific Seminar Protection of the Environment Luxembourg 20 November 2012

      Reedbeds are commonly used in Australia by local Councils for industrial sites and street runoff into creeks and rivers.

      In any estuarine environment you can easily add oyster and mussel beds in enclosed fine steel mesh cages, so the birds and other wildlife can’t eat them, and they can be retrieved for incineration or burial every few months.

      Hope Bill has his Texan bacon and eggs on buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup to get a full complement of vitamins and minerals to fuel the Hunter S. Thompson apocalypse monologues… Where are the Steadman sketches to go with the commentary…..

      A full understanding of the engineering must be extremely depressing, better off being really angry and getting the info out there………

      1. Fool,

        Helen Dawson, you remain a low-IQ, poorly educated, ignorant, stupid, nescient … Fool.

        But, at least, in your slow-learning-curve way, you appear to have recognized that Tritiated Water cannot be bio-remediated.

        Helen is a ‘Watermelon’. ‘Watermelons’ are ‘Greens on the outside’ but ‘Reds on the inside’. Helen has no capacity to do anything that is ‘good for the environment’. Helen has no tolerance for any action that is economically sound.

        It takes all kinds to make a world. Helen plays the fool.

  18. Polygenomx states their strategy is “Polyploidy induction”, thatis increased salt tolerance and faster growth rates by stress induced selection, not GM. So I take back comment about the cane toads….

  19. Yuppie Lawns,

    The well-maintained suburban yard is a snapshot of nuclear fallout remediation.

    Burmuda Grass adsorbs nuclear fallout (radionuclides) from the soil and rain. Grasses grow rapidly; allowing 25 cuttings per year. When the cut grass is hauled to the city-dump, massive quantities of radiostrontium and radiocesium are moved away from homes, children and schools.

    The clay barriers of city landfills, will reduce migration dramatically. The decades-long halflife integrates well with the storage mechanism. Little will enter the watertable. Less will migrate. Time remediates in the case of these dangerous fission products.

    Mulching … sucks.

  20. False Dichotomy (False Dilemma)

    National Socialist (corporatists) and Reds (international communists) thrive on denunciations of each other. These two are quite similar, functionally and in their constant use of logical fallacy, bombastic propaganda and denunciations. They both incorporate extreme limits on personal freedoms and individual dignity. They place no value on human life.

    There are MANY alternatives to corporatism and communism. These MANY alternatives are sometimes referred to as ‘the excluded middle’.

  21. Congealed Rubbish:

    Helen Dawson summarizes her braindead worldview thusly: “A full understanding of the engineering must be extremely depressing, better off being really angry and getting the info out there …”

    http www breitbart com (Big-Hollywood/2009/05/21/Whoopi-Goldberg-and-the-Separate-Reality)

    Good day, Class. Some of you have asked what schedule of course work is required to become a Doctor of Separate Reality. It is only indicative of mastery of numerous absurd and esoteric concepts, most of which are virtually unknown to the entire population of the planet.

    For the Romantic, feeling is everything, the end-all and be-all in living and decision making. This world-view has evolved since the days of Rousseau into a dominant cultural force. While Enlightenment-based points of view depend upon Reason in the process of founding opinion and judgment upon facts, Romance cannot be bothered by anything that might get in the way of the preciousness of subjective emotion.

  22. Bullfights:

    The Bull is very angry in the bullfight … and very stupid. The stupid bull charges the cape; while the matador carves him into taco meat. Helen Dawson is, by her own admission, as stupid as the bull in the bullfight.

    Unfocused anger is stupid. That is evertrue in formulating public policy decisions.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
