4.8 Earthquake Directly off coast of ***ushima Nuclear Disaster Site; New Radiation Leak !!! Print
Sunday, 13 April 2014 12:04
April 13, 2014 -- (TRN) -- A Magnitude 4.8 earthquake has taken place TODAY in the ocean less than 25 miles from the ***ushima Nuclear Disaster Site in Japan and a new radiation leak has taken place at the plant! The earthquake was felt for more than 500 km along the Japanese coastline. According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) the quake measured 4.8 at a depth of 55 km. Map and VIDEO of the quake, below!
The ***ushima Nuclear Power Plant Disaster Site in Japan has been hit with another earthquake and has developed a new radiation leak. According to the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) Up to one ton of radioactive water has leaked out of a plastic storage tank at ***ushima No. 1 nuclear plant, some 700 meters away from the shore. The tank’s lower part is damaged to allow tainted water to flow into the ground The water contained 440 becquerels [per liter] of cesium-134 and 1,200 becquerels [per liter] of cesium-137 as well as 1,400 becquerels [per liter] of beta ray-emitting radioactive substances such as strontium-90, according to TEPCO.

This latest trouble comes on the heels of a revelation by TEPCO that a previous leak in August of last year at No. 1 Reactor was far more toxic than announced: After recalculating the radiation level, Tepco said the water contained 280 million becquerels per liter of beta ray-emitting radioactive materials such as strontium-90, instead of 80 million becquerels¹. A total of 300 tons of toxic water was found to have leaked at that time, part of which is believed to have flowed into the adjacent Pacific Ocean. The Nuclear Regulation Authority assessed the severity of the incident to be level 3 on an eight-point international scale.

¹ 280,000,000 Bq/liter of beta ray-emitting radioactive materials such as strontium-90 * 1,000 liters/metric ton * 300 tons = 84,000,000,000,000 Bq of beta ray-emitting radioactive materials such as strontium-90

Soon after the INES level 3 incident, a Tepco release stated: “We determined that this incident corresponds to “a case when nuclear fuel material (not in the form of gas) or the like has leaked within an area controlled by the company due to an unpredictable event such as a failure of a nuclear reactor facility for power generation” as per Article 18, item 12 of the regulations concerning the operational safety and the protection of specified nuclear fuel material at the TEPCO’s ***ushima Daiichi NPS nuclear reactor facilities.”

If another earthquake shakes hard enough, or generates yet another Tsunami from the ocean, the damaged spent fuel pools that are already falling apart from the March, 2011 quake and tsunami, could rupture or fall over, draining the cooling water. Without the water covering, the gamma radiation in the area would INSTANTLY rise to lethal levels, making it impossible for people to get near the pools to do anything about it.

Once the spent fuel rods are no longer covered with water, they would melt their Zirconium casings and spontaneously erupt into a nuclear inferno. As the tons of spent fuel burns, it would pump tons of radiation into the air which would reach the US and Canada within 3 days.

The map below shows the location of today's earthquake relative to the ***ushima disaster site.

Bluefin and swordfish caught off the CA coast months ago -- all were reportedly too radioactive for human consumption.

A more recent report added Killer Whales to this list.

We are facing the loss of the entire Pacific fishery. Imagine the hit to the US and world economies. It's unimaginable.

So, why is the US media silent on this? It's another in a growing list of issues that are blacked out -- to keep the American people ignorant -- and distracted.

A Gray whale was born with two heads here in Baja this season.

I want to whale watch in San Carlos a month or so ago. I was talking with a local sea shell vendor outside my hotel. He had in jars of some liquid a baby shark with a long snake like tale and a baby fish with two heads. He told me fisherman were encountering deformed fish at levels never before seen.

You know that feeling when you're sitting in a chair, and you lean back, and the two front legs come off the floor, and you lean back a little bit more, and for an instant, you feel like you've leaned too far and you're about to fall backwards, hard, and you have a bit of a spasm trying to rescue your balance?

Do you feel like that all the time?

Why are most liberals and their media deicing not to spend much time on this story? Is it simply because they can't find a way to blame a republican or the U.S.? They typically are hysterical about pollution and harm done to the world. They spend time worrying about the gas produced by cattle. But radiation problems in our oceans and their couldn't care less? Makes no sense unless ah, they are showing they are selective about an issue and only express concern and worry when political points can be gained.

You miss the point, as usual. This issue is way bigger than partisan politics.

It hits at the root problem...the collective denial of western civilization.

As Peter Dale Scott put it "western civilization is a conspiracy of organized denial..."

In short, denial on a host of issues is the starting point for all of us. To overcome that takes work.

Sadly, few around here are willing to put in the time, do the research etc.

Because there is nothing anybody can do about it. It's like the BP spill in the Gulf. You've got to stop this **** before it happens. Take Keystone, for example.

wow, so there's nothing to report? If anything, the press should be all over this story so as to promote green energy and the ills of nuclear energy. "hey, look at all the deformed fish, we are poisoning the ocean, this is why alternative energy is needed, yadda, yadda, yadda." This is right up the mainstream media's ally.

but, not a word is heard from msnbc and their ilk.

I'm sure there is plenty to report, but there is nothing to be done. The damage is done. Now, they're trying to contain it. Like BP, all the things they should have thought about before they built, they must think of now.

As far as the panic coming from some sites regarding the end of the world and death for all in the Pacific Ocean, here's what Woods Hole says: https://www.whoi.edu/page.do?pid=833...3622&cid=94989

I'm more worried about acidification caused by global warming.

Sounds good. Still doesn't solve the problem that unlimited growth is a form of insanity. Want to fix all the worlds' problems? Reduce the population of man.

the media was all over BP and the oil spill and is still covering the damage, your argument simply holds no water.
