The latest TEPCO radiation estimate puts the amount of cesium leaked from Fukushima to be equal to 4,023 Hiroshima bombs

On Wednesday, TEPCO released estimates of the amount of Cesium leaked from Fukushimathat are 24 times higher than previously thought and equal to 4,023 Hiroshimabombs.

Last August the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) estimated 15,000 tera becquerels of cesium radiationhad leaked from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant in Japan.
One tera becquerel equals 1 trillion becquerels.
At that time, the estimated cesium release was ‘equal 168 Hiroshima bombs’ as the atomic bomb atomic bomb dropped on Japan during World War II had only released 89 tera becquerels of cesium.
On Wednesday, TEPCO releasedrevised estimates of the amount of radiation leaked from Fukushima.
The new estimated calculated the level of cesium released to be 360,000 tera becquerels.
That is 24 times higher than last August’s estimate and represents a cesium leak equal to 4,023 Hiroshima bombs.
The estimate is also more than 4 times Chernobylwhich is estimated to have released 85,000 tera becquerels of cesium radiation into atmosphere.
TEPCO’s newly revised estimates of the Fukushima leak are also not all-inclusive and do not cover the entire date range from the start of the disaster.
The estimate of the total atmosphere release is based on data collected from between March 12 to 31, 2011,
TEPCO states the amount of radiation released into the atmosphere in April and during the following months is likely to be only 1% of the amount released in March.
That amount is considered to be ‘insignificant’ and is not included in the new estimate.
The estimated amount of radiation leaked into Pacific Ocean was extrapolated from data collected from March 26 to September 30, 2011.
TEPCO warned this data was collected from a ‘small amount of data acquired in a limited area’ and further warned ‘further data still needs to be collected to review the validity’ of their estimates.
The new estimate also did not provide figures for the amount of radiation leaked into the water pits that run beneath the Fukushima’s nuclear reactors or for radiation leaked into contaminated water that TEPCO has collected into storage tanks.
Last June, TEPCO estimatedthe amount of radiation leaked into the underground water pits to be up to nearly to two times higher than the amount of radiation released into the atmosphere.

IndependentWHO – Health and Nuclear Power

IndependentWHO – Health and Nuclear Power

«The World Health Organisation (WHO) is failing in its duty to protect those populations who are victims of radioactive contamination.»

Last Friday 5th July 2013 I went to participate for few hours to the Independent WHO’s vigil in Paris in front of the French Ministry of Health, where I met a few Anti-nuke veterans,
I believe that this Vigil is in fact particularly important, as it denounces the treacherous 1959 agreement made betwween the WHO and the IAEA, with a continuous citizen’s presence demanding due real protection from the WHO and each country’s Health Department,

I do think it would be great if the Vigil was extended from Geneva and Paris in Europe to USA and Japan, by having the American people also having a vigil in front of their own Health Department in Washington D,C, and the Japanese people as well in Tokyo in front of Japanese Health Ministry, so that people on 3 continents would be united in denouncing that devious agreement, demanding for its reviewing and its revocation, as this agreement is maintaining a conflict of interest keeping the WHO subservient to the nuclear own interests of the IAEA, therefore blocking the WHO to perform its dued mission of protecting internationally the people from all kinds of sanitary dangers

The Vigil for June 2013 – Geneva and Paris
« Since April 26, 2007, the Hippocratic Vigil has been held outside the WHO headquarters in Geneva, which now makes a total of 322 weeks without interruption. The vigil consists of a silent presence that aims to remind the World Health Organization of its obligations as set out in its constitution. We have added the name of Hippocrates to our description because of the ethical rules he instituted for health practitioners. As far as the protection of the health of people affected by the consequences of the nuclear industry is concerned, the World Health Organization ignores these rules.
The Vigil takes place outside the WHO headquarters in Geneva every working day from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and in Paris every Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

We now believe it is important to address ourselves to those who are partly responsible for deciding WHO policy. It is for this reason that, on 9th November 2012, we began a Vigil outside the Ministry of Health in Paris. The Ministers of Health are the representatives of the member countries of WHO, and they are involved in deciding the policies and actions that this institution pursues in the area of radioprotection.
We will maintain this silent and peaceful vigil every Friday from 9am to 5pm outside the Ministry of Health in Paris, until France takes the necessary steps to ensure that WHO fulfils its mission to protect the population from radioactive pollution, and that a programme of independent research is put in place on a national and / or European level, on the theme of “Health and nuclear power”.

Chernobyl to Fukushima

Troy Livingston : Repost with Author permission :Repost by citizenperth

Comparing Fukushima and Chernobyl is like comparing apples and oranges, Fukushima is so much bigger and different then Chernobyl there is no comparison. Some poeple can onley understand how bad fukushima is if its is compared to the biggest nuclear disaster in history chernobyl that happened in 1986 in ukrane.

You probably already know that there has been over 2000 scientific research papers published on Chernobyl and put together in this book, that has been peered reviewed and published through New York Academy of Science.

So according to this Chernobyl book there has been almost 1,000,000 deaths as a result of chernobyl nuclear radiation and 7,000,000 people are negatively effected which are mostly children. Chernobyl contaminated 77,000 square miles with its 185 TONS of nuclear CORE MATERIAL from its ONE REACTOR that exploded and burned for ONLY 10 to 14 DAYS by till it was stopped by lead and sand and finally sealed in a metal sarcophagus 10 to 11 months after. This is one isotope only

Ok lets now talk about Fukushima shall we.

Fukushima has already killed 10,000’s of people and its only been a little over a year and half.

Fukushima has a staggering 1785 TONS nuclear fuel,

40 YEARS OF SPENT FUEL and MOX PLUTONUM and has been burning open for this entire time since march 2011 when 4 REACTORS EXPLODED (3 external r1,r3 and r4 and r2 internally leakage into the ocean this entire time) and melted down.

The entire pacific in contaminated beyond comprehension as these ocean cooled reactors are located close to the sea and have been leaking the entire time, oh yeah they also intentionally dumped millions of galls of high level radioactivity to sea.

The molted masses that are melting into the ground and continually releasing steam and casing earthquakes on the rim of fire fault line that runs through Japan.

Because they dumped sea water on the reactors we have even more lethal radioactive isotopes because they turn into a Bucky ball substance that can travel 1000 times better in the air long distance then Chernobyl’s graphite. Fukushima has MOX PLUTONUIM NANO SIZE BUCKY BALLS

The air was full of deadly man made nuclear isotopes the hammered and blanketed the entire northern hemisphere

Chernobyl is just a pimple on Fukushima ass in terms of size and even more so in terms of toxicity.

Once the nuclear material goes into the core it there for about 4 years (depending on type) then its is taken out and called spent fuel. Spent fuel is 1,000,000 times more toxic then nuclear material that in the core of the reactor. Fukushima had 40 years of spent fuel that blew up on R1 and R3 with R4 sfp partially burning and melting.

Chernobyl had no spent fuel. But what’s really crazy is r3 in fukushima is MOX plutonium that is 2,000,000 times more toxic then the core material that was in Chernobyl. All in all Fukushima is so much bigger and deadlier then what most people can even imagine. As more time goes on you will see that this will have direr consequence that far surpass that of Chernobyl’s. This is only a fraction of the information out there and if any body studied the fukushima facts would know this. Its been said by many head officials and scientists that this is far far worse then Chernobyl.½-chernobyls-of-cs-137-but-it-is-worse-doubly-ironic-that-it-is-all-thanks-to-yomiuri-shinbun-pro-nuke-establishment-newspaper

Peace love and happiness my friends … so lets not let nuclear power take it from us as it has to millions already. We must unite to end nuclear power and ensure nothing like these long lived man made nuclear disasters ever happen again. Time is ticking as everyday more nuclear waste is generated which can not co exists with life and have no right being on our precious earth. The only way to do this is end your enslavement and there power

Fukushima now and forever
