One of the world’s leading terrorists, the mass murderer Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has been summoned to China where he will be confronted with evidence of his involvement in the March 11, 2011 nuclear and tsunami terror attack against Japan, according to Chinese government sources.

The evidence is a tape recorded phone call to then Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan in which Netanyahu threatened to destroy all of Japan’s nuclear reactors if Kan did not order the Japanese government to write off its holdings of US government debt, according to Japanese military intelligence. In exchange for sweeping this issue under the carpet, the 180 nation BRICS alliance will demand an end to all further war-mongering in the Middle East.

The Israeli use of a nuclear bunker buster bomb against Syria just before Netanyahu’s departure was a futile gesture of defiance as the worldwide crackdown on the Sabbatean Satanic mafia unfolds.

Living here in Portland downstream of Hanford on the Columbia River, the cleanup issues get a lot of public and private attention and oversight. It's also a high priority and concern for the WA, OR, and ID governors.

So no shortage or local PNW pressure to proceed apace, but with caution on the cleanup. The holdups always lie with either congress (money), the contractor (slacking & bilking), and / or the DoE (indecision).



Some local thinking on the tanks is tackle removing the wastes by stratified layers - the gas, then liquid, then sludge, then salt cake, etc. That will also ease some of the separation issues.

Tom,

there are some truths to the article, and a lot of fiction.

edit:
healyje nailed it....DOE decisions are great, but dont make any difference if there is not funding (from congress) to enact that decision.

Furthermore, I would much rather see the waste in a modern radiochemical processing facility than in single shell tanks built in the 40's and 50's. And i assure you that it is way safer than some of the mom and pop chemical plants out there. (See the recent TX disaster).

those tepco shits havnt even frozen the ground under fukishima NOR the tank farm they have built to juggle all the waste water they have produced sofar...

their already clearing forrest land nearby for the construction of further waste water tank arrays...

temporary jugs plumbed back and forther with tubing ALL sitting over the fresh water aquifer which test samples show is already being contaminated with cesium AS OF TODAY!!!

Yes its bad but stop bringing it up. Please! I never going to eat any more
ocean caught fish. No family is either. Stopped right after the tidal wave. If I had a geiger counter maybe...

If StarKist tuna had radiation free stickers on the cans
like the dolphin free stickers I could reconsider.

Tepco Says Toxic Water Leaked to Sea From Fukushima Plant
By Tsuyoshi Inajima - Jul 22, 2013 6:57 PM PT

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (9501), operator of the wrecked Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant, said radioactive water from the damaged reactors has been escaping into the nearby Pacific, confirming the leak for the first time.

Tepco, as the utility is known, suspected the breach after finding water levels in monitoring wells moving in sync with tidal flows, spokeswoman Kaoru Suzuki said by phone today. The operator doesn’t know yet when the leaks started or how much of the water has escaped into the ocean, she said.

The finding, first reported Monday, follows statements from the nation’s nuclear regulator that said earlier this month it suspected radioactive particles had leaked into the ocean after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami crippled the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant.

Water samples suggest contamination has been contained in the port area near the Fukushima plant, Suzuki said.

The handling of highly radioactive water is an issue that has vexed Tepco as the utility oversees the plant’s cleanup. Most of the leaking water is a legacy of the early days of the crisis when disaster teams used hose pipes and pumps to try and cool the reactors. Leaks in April raised the prospect the utility would be forced to dump radioactive water in the Pacific.

Last month, Tepco said it had found unsafe levels of radioactivity in groundwater at the Fukushima station. The contaminants were found at a monitoring well in a turbine complex at the Dai-Ichi plant.

The latest findings are a reminder of the complexities facing Tepco as it mops up the aftermath of the Fukushima disaster. All but two of Japan’s reactors are idled for safety assessments after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Several of Japan’s regional utilities earlier this month applied to the Nuclear Regulation Authority for safety checks as part of a step toward restarting their reactors.

Tepco shares fell 4.9 percent to 669 yen as of 10:36 a.m. on the Tokyo Stock Exchange after earlier dropping as much as 5.1 percent, headed for their biggest decline since July 3.

I checked the Tsunami warnings last night after reading through here.
Appeared there were no warnings for Hawaii as previously reported
within here.

Their policies for evacuation appeared incredible. I only saw what
appeared to be 1 white flag waving from a balcony. I was waiting
for further news but i could find none this morning on the front
pages.

They really have no choice other than to keep pumping water into the reactors and with the leaks under them it's without question going into the ocean. The water they have tanked through the crisis will likely be dumped as well before it's all over.

My sister was there at the time .
Or maybe it was the Solomon island earth quake
Can't remember

But she was woke up by a tsunami siren that went off in her closet in the hotel .
Like an air raid siren going off in your a*# basically.
Scared the sh#t out if her ...

They were all evacuated to high ground and watched a little ripple of a tsunami hit the shore later in the day.

Japan says Fukushima leak worse than thought, government joins clean-up

Reuters
Mari Saito and Antoni Slodkowski 4 hours ago NatureJapanTokyo Electric Power Company

By Mari Saito and Antoni Slodkowski

TOKYO (Reuters) - Highly radioactive water from Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is pouring out at a rate of 300 tonnes a day, officials said on Wednesday, as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ordered the government to step in and help in the clean-up.

The revelation amounted to an acknowledgement that plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) has yet to come to grips with the scale of the catastrophe, 2 1/2 years after the plant was hit by a huge earthquake and tsunami. Tepco only recently admitted water had leaked at all.

Calling water containment at the Fukushima Daiichi station an "urgent issue," Abe ordered the government for the first time to get involved to help struggling Tepco handle the crisis.

Governments are the people or should be. That the Japanese government has not been involved says a lot. They have failed the people of the world.
