“7,100 Bq/Kg from incineration ash in Tochigi pref.”

It was taken in Nasu-shiobara this May. The second highest was 2,724 Bq/Kg in Nikko.

Le relevé a été fait à Nasu-shiobara en mai dernier. Le deuxième record était de 2 724 Bq/kg à Nikko.

    1. And this comes right on the publication of a new report showing that no fuku radiation is detected on the west coast. I guess the fish died of overexposure to your bullshit.

  1. Questionable Reassurances for USA West Coast,

    For those still inclined to believe Ken Buessler and the UC Berkeley Department of Nuclear Engineering …

    Maybe less reassuring for the REST of us …

  2. Let’s see what ELSE Ken Buessler has to say, these days …

    Gee Whiz, he appears to be PROMOTING commercial nuclear power plants.

    ‘Floating Nuclear Power Plants Might Be the Future of Energy’, China and Russia have agreed to develop floating nuclear facilities from the end of the decade and some US scientists also have bold plans.

    Ken Buesseler, a marine chemistry scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, told VICE News that it can be easier to contain a nuclear leak on land, but the fallout can impact and remain in the soil for however long it takes for the nuclear waste to decay. Buesseler explained that waste from nuclear leak in water would undergo dilution — but if it’s close enough to shore it could take down fisheries. After the Fukushima nuclear disaster, tens of thousands of people have been forced from their homes indefinitely, while the waste that leaked into the Pacific Ocean forced fisheries to close, leading to the loss of millions of dollars. Buesseler said the question becomes whether it’s better to have 70,000 people unable to move back to their homes from a land-based accident, or shut more fisheries as nuclear waste moves up the food chain due to an incident with a floating structure.

    While there aren’t any existing floating nuclear power plants to look to for insight on what could happen after an accident, there are nuclear submarines and ships that have been navigating the globe for decades. The instances in which these vessels have sunk provide an interesting look into what could happen with a nuclear reactor floating in the ocean. When nuclear subs have foundered in the past, they have been typically left in the ocean as they are extremely challenging to remove from deep waters. In most cases, the metal casing around the reactors is reportedly sturdy and unlikely to corrode anytime soon — at least not before the nuclear isotopes themselves decay. Buesseler explained that, in some cases, the isotopes don’t mix very well with water and thus nuclear activity remains localized. Other more soluble isotopes can get into the ecosystem, he added, but dilution does begin to take effect.

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.
