Tepco bungles it again, Southern Hemisphere September 2019
#1
In my previous post on the 1 million tons of radioactive contaminated water stored in the tanks at Fukushima, there was only mention of the presence of tritium. The excellent article below points out there are significant amounts of other radioactive contaminants in those tanks!

Quote from the 2018 Asahi Shimbun Article below:

"The ministry, for its part, should be held accountable for its failure to ensure appropriate disclosure of the information by TEPCO. The subcommittee should be faulted for concentrating its attention almost exclusively on tritium."

In the light of these revelations it makes it important to have an independent third party organization investigated what is actually in those thousands of tanks. Also it would be niece to known where the high level radioactive material from the ALPS filtering process ends up.

Environmentally naturally occurring tritium is very rare. No, tritium is not safe, as a lot of MSN articles have inferred, watch this short video about the health effects of tritium,  "No Safe Dose".

9th October 2018 - EDITORIAL: TEPCO bungles it again in dealing with Fukushima tainted water

Extracts:

In 65,000 tons of treated water, the levels of strontium 90 are more than 100 times the safety standards, according to TEPCO. The levels are as high as 20,000 times the standards in some tanks.

In explaining the reasons for this failure, TEPCO pointed to problems with the ALPS system shortly after it was first installed. The utility also reduced the frequency of the replacement of absorbents for removing radioactive materials to keep the system running as long as possible.

The ministry, for its part, should be held accountable for its failure to ensure appropriate disclosure of the information by TEPCO. The subcommittee should be faulted for concentrating its attention almost exclusively on tritium.

Southern Hemisphere September 2019 Background Level Report

This short animation of Northern and Southern Hemisphere air circulation, shows why we can get detections so far south.

September 2019 day average background chart. (Month Average 110 cpm)

There has been a slight increase in month average background level for September. This seasonal variation in local background levels has become a normal trend  here since Fukushima. As we get more tropical air flows at this location in the warmer months, the local background increases, and then drops back down again in winter.

Vital1, what is the average at your location for the low background time of year?
we are healthy with background radiation but unhealthy with the same dose from fallout

Video didn't play in IE or Google.  Got a link for the video?  

Tritium is deadly for aquatic species.  The fishermen know what it's already done to their fish stocks and fight attempts to dump the tainted water.  Strontium will take awhile to give us cancer and wreck immune systems.  Both are harmful and shouldn't be released to the Ocean.  The Ocean is already in trouble from the contamination man dumps there.  When the rest of the Ocean is dead, TEPCO will still be proclaiming how safe radiation is.  Oh yeah, I forgot a smile...    Rolleyes

Horse,

Fixed the broken link to the "No safe Dose" video in my post at the top of this page.

Code,

The month average background in winter months here this year was 108 CPM. The lowest month average was
107 CPM in July.

Thanks Vital1, good video. It was sad to see the women and children playing on the patio in the highest zone of Tritium detected at the facility. They get home safely enough at the time, but with a dose to start electron tracks forming cancer. Years later, when the cancer grows enough to be detected they will have forgotten what that fun frolic cost them. I'm strongly against TEPCO dumping the tanks radioactive contents to sea. Fukushima Dai-ichi contamination has destroyed the Pacific and they shouldn't be allowed to finish the job just to save TEPCO/Japan a few Yen.
