The Fukushima Nuclear Crisis: Separating Fact From Fiction

Post by spacemaverick on Wed Jan 29, 2014 2:33 pm

The Fukushima Nuclear Crisis: Separating Fact From Fiction

A panel of Simon Fraser University professors assembled on Monday, April 11 at the Morris J Wosk Centre for Dialogue to discuss the ripple effects of Japan's nuclear crisis.

SFU researchers Mark Jaccard, Corina Andreoiu, Kris Starosta and Paul Schaffer shared their expertise in a variety of disciplines as they address issues related to the disaster.

Among questions that they addressed are: How big are the risks? Are the levels of radiation detected in the Pacific Northwest dangerous? How safe is nuclear energy in general? How does the current crisis compare to accidents like Chernobyl and Three Mile Island? How does nuclear energy work?



In the interest of adding scientific experts in the field of nuclear energy I discovered this good video from Simon Fraser University.  This video is 2 hours and 5 minutes long but informative.  For Apple users / Mac users the link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=saM85y8lFm4

This is from April 2011 after the Fukushima problem.

One of the things that I have noticed in life is that you can find experts for any viewpoint or situation. The video in this thread gives you and understanding of the science behind the Fukushima problem. Then you look to real world and what seems to be happening along the West Coast and in the Pacific and it raises the question as to who is correct about Fukushima and its affect on the Pacific, the West coast and the Northern hemisphere. I am trying to make sure I bring out many viewpoints. I would welcome some feedback and any points others may have.

I find this a very good site coming from the citizens not connected to government. I believe this site is very informative and loaded with a common sense approach to Fukushima. Check it out.

TEPCO measurements were in error by their own admission, WHAT!

Post by spacemaverick on Sat Feb 08, 2014 9:38 am


Now TEPCO says they got their reading wrong! Can you say they have no clue on taking care of the problem? Maybe they got caught giving out the wrong readings and now trying to back peddle.


http://enenews.com/kyodo-massive-amount-of-fukushima-radiation-data-could-be-wrong-figures-cannot-be-trusted-nhk-strontium-90-in-groundwater-close-to-ocean-160000-times-limit-actual-levels-had-exceed

Kyodo: ‘Massive’ amount of Fukushima data wrong? “Figures can’t be trusted” — NHK: Strontium-90 by ocean at 160,000 times limit — Tepco: Actual levels “exceeded the upper limit of measurement… We are very sorry”

Kyodo, Feb. 7, 2014: TEPCO to review “massive” radiation data due to improper measurement – [TEPCO] said Friday that it will review a “massive” amount of radiation data it has collected at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant because readings may be lower than actual figures due to improper measurement. “We are very sorry, but we found cases in which beta radiation readings turned out to be wrong when the radioactivity concentration of a sample was high,” TEPCO spokesman Masayuki Ono told a press conference.

CAN WE TRUST ANYONE TAKING READINGS?

Those poor people need to get out of there and someone needs to help them.

Fukushima Return: At Nuclear Site, How Safe is “Safe?”

Post by Cliff-67 on Mon Apr 14, 2014 7:03 pm

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

Fukushima Return: At Nuclear Site, How Safe is “Safe?”

Residents cleared to return after massive cleanup, but some wonder whether it's a bid to cut victim compensation.

For the first time since Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power disaster three years ago, residents of a small portion of the surrounding restricted area are being allowed to return home, even though radiation levels remain elevated.
