Apparent criticality in Fukushima unit 3 leads to Japan NRA outing Tepco for radioactive leaks.

Fukushima Diary (1) has a table from Tepco showing alpha radiation measurements of HEPA filters in unit 3 of Fukushima Daiichi of 190,000 Bq/m3, on May 14-15. These are alpha-emitting particles, not gases, so they are likely to be mostly uranium and plutonium. No explanation was given as to why it took almost 3 months to release this data.

A previous post (2) showed high levels of radioactive silver (Ag-110m) and cobalt-60 in unit 3 at the same time. Units 1 and 2 did not have the same activities. Radioactive silver comes from melted control rods. Cobalt-60 arises from the interaction of neutron emitters (like plutonium) with building materials (like walls, fuel pool structures, etc.)

A post on this blog (3) showed high levels of iodine-131 in sewage sludge in two geographically separated Japanese prefectures in June and July.

And radioactive xenon (4) was detected in the air by South Korea in June.

And also my thyroid swelled up for the period approximately June 1-July 15. (I have autoimmune disease and a TSH-secreting pituitary adenoma, which has caused secondary hyperthyroidism.)

So this adds up to a criticality which began in early and middle May, and released isotopes of iodine, xenon, cesium, strontium, tritium, uranium, and plutonium into the air, and is especially continuing into the sea. This means that the nuclear fuel that went critical has gotten hotter… whether the fuel is underground corium, or aboveground spent fuel pools. I suspect the latter.

This chain reaction has transferred nuclear energy into the creation of new radioactive isotopes, on top of what is already at the plant. I had previously thought unit 5 was responsible, but it appears that unit 3, the MOX reactor, is responsible. Both the reactor and spent fuel pool in this unit have high amounts of plutonium in the fuel.

Sharp increases in cesium, strontium, tritium, and all-beta radiation in pools and trenches had been reported by Tepco after this criticality. The increases in all-beta are consistent with radioactive daughter products of uranium. Finally the Japanese nuclear regulatory agency had enough, and stated that these isotopes were leaking into the sea, and Tepco admitted to it, after lying about sea releases for two years.

This has led to a slew of news stories and op-ed pieces in the mainstream mass media. In a commentary in the Jerusalem Post (5),

If you haven’t read about Fukushima recently, or for a long time, you should – but only if you are ready to be shocked and frightened and confused. In any event, it looks like we are going to be hearing a great deal more about it. But however it turns out, the clearest conclusion to be drawn from the sad saga is that governments and their agencies simply cannot be believed, especially in matters of life and death.

And a story today in Reuters quotes Arnie Gundersen about the dangers of removing rods from spent fuel pool #4:

“There is a risk of an inadvertent criticality if the bundles are distorted and get too close to each other,” Gundersen said.

He was referring to an atomic chain reaction that left unchecked could result in a large release of radiation and heat that the fuel pool cooling system isn’t designed to absorb.

“The problem with a fuel pool criticality is that you can’t stop it. There are no control rods to control it,” Gundersen said. “The spent fuel pool cooling system is designed only to remove decay heat, not heat from an ongoing nuclear reaction.”

The rods are also vulnerable to fire should they be exposed to air, Gundersen said.

Hey Arnie, we just had a criticality.

This should indicate that the recent revelations have the form of a limited hangout (6). From Wikipedia:

A limited hangout, or partial hangout, is a public relations or propaganda technique that involves the release of previously hidden information in order to prevent a greater exposure of more important details.

It takes the form of deception, misdirection, or coverup often associated with intelligence agencies involving a release or “mea culpa” type of confession of only part of a set of previously hidden sensitive information, that establishes credibility for the one releasing the information who by the very act of confession appears to be “coming clean” and acting with integrity; but in actuality, by withholding key facts, is protecting a deeper operation and those who could be exposed if the whole truth came out. In effect, if an array of offenses or misdeeds is suspected, this confession admits to a lesser offense while covering up the greater ones.

The “mea culpa” confession is the admission of radioactive leaks into the Pacific. The greater offense is the cover-up of criticalities, especially iodine-131 measurements. Look at the huge rate of thyroid cysts and nodules, and thyroid cancer, among Japanese children. They’re lying about iodine.

Tepco has built an impervious wall between the plant and the sea, in an effort to stop the leaks. It failed and was overtopped even before they finished it. All it does is back the leaking water up into the plant, and weaken the reactor building foundations and the soil underneath, which may cause a huge catastrophe in a collapse.

Now they are talking about building a mile-long “ice wall” around the reactors. Even if this works, it will not stop the criticalities. The radionuclides will be released into the air, and much of them will be deposited as rainfall over the Pacific anyway.

And if that wasn’t enough, a nuclear plant in Taiwan (7) has been leaking contaminated water since 2009. And the linear accelerator laboratory at Tokai released (8) 20 billion becquerels of radioactivity. This is not much compared to Fukushima, but it consists of many exotic and little-known radioisotopes.

  1. Thank you very much, Bobby1. My family and friends also had increased symptoms during the same time. The limited hangout types like Gundersen pretend like they are warning you about something in the future, but really they are helping to poison you in the past and present. The enenews webcam thread has been suspicious, the criticalities keep coming…

    Nuckelchen on criticalities:

    • Thanks to you too, NoNukes. I think we have had a bigtime plutonium emission. My respiratory symptoms are as bad as April-May 2011, probably worse.

        • Bobby1, I am so sorry that your respiratory symptoms are so bad. They have been testing aerosolized plutonium on Beagle dogs since the 1950s. The beagles die quickly. It is amazing that any of us are still alive. Mass Murderers.

          anne’s posts at the end of May 2013 highlighted the spike in radiation in Japan and across the U.S., the timing fits.

    I don’t know if this is “IT” (the final event to destroy the Daiichi complex and possibly the Northern Hemisphere), but that “light” that appears at 37 seconds into the Fuku1Live recording is weird:

    Look at the base of the big tower at 2:34 into the Fuku clip…some fierce activity for night time:

    • I’ve got nuisance radioactive symptoms like peeling nails. The plantar wart and heel spur I developed in May 12 is acting up again. A bit of thyroid too.

      Not the multiple life-threatening stuff of last year, but something is going on.

      Asahi: Radioactive cesium in Fukushima water now 8 times higher than when disaster began

      Highest contamination levels yet in seawater off Fukushima plant — 3,800 Bq/liter of tritium

      • Having said that, today my back suddenly went completely out while shopping. I had to hold on to the display with the grapes, because I couldn’t even stand up. Then I managed to shuffle around and finish at the store.

        • I’m so sorry about your back, Bobby1! I hope it gets better. My thyroid has been really bothering me the past few days, I think there is a significant plume coming through now…

              • haHA! no no silly NoNukes, that was yesterday after I did her hair, but not mine! She is one gorgeous lady! And we are soul sisters!

                • Oh come on vgirl, the ONE good one,…your head is turned,…you’re checking out your handy work on my hair!

                  Friends,…I don’t know if anyone mentioned my absence, or why. My baby, Justin Storm (23) died on July 1st, in an alcohol roll over. Ashley died at 23 also, you may recall, my first born. I tried to off myself with opiates,…but only NEARLY killed my sliver/liver. I guess I am living through that movie Bobby1 added here early on,…the one with William Devine. My heart and soul are broken,…and I am dead inside.

                  Just didn’t want you to think I didn’t love you ALL!

                  God,… with us all,…it will be everyone’s turn eventually, as you know.

                  • Dear Jill,

                    I am at a loss of words to comfort you. I am sorry that your dear soul has had to sustain another tragic loss. Believe in the Continuum. With your bright soul, of which they were a glorious part of, the sacred bond of your mothering is never broken. Grieve, yes grieve. Let it out. But in that outbreak…allow your soul room to renaissance in the warm light that is HIS. Bathe your soul in that warmth. And in the bathing of that warmth They (Justin and Ashley) will will be there too,… sending loving healing to you.

                  • Jill,

                    There are tears in my eyes, I am so sorry for your loss of your baby. Justin was “dripping with love,” right? HIs spirit just sounds so pure and loving, as is yours.
                    My love and prayers are with you, Jill.

                  • “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” jn14:2

                    Also, I love reading The Song of Solomon when any of our loved ones pass on, as it is a love story and not as heady.
                    It’s a wonderful spiritual “fire-starter”, and truly non-polluting!

                    Now i hope you can find a way out of the elements and build your strength up. That is my prayer. Jill of Arc de triomphe! I hope you are strengthened enough give ’em verbal hell, too.

  4. Radiation dose has surged temporarily, such as Fukushima from the other day, but according to Fukushima Prefecture, it is that there is a possibility that radioactive material in the air has dropped all together under the influence of heavy rain. It is estimated that in the real-time activity graph, upward trend has continued ever since August 11 every day, that there is something to do with the recent heavy rain.


  5. Jilly, VGrrrl! I love you both like sisters. You too, Bobby! 😛

    Majia recently posted the following to her blog:

    ” ALERT: Black Blob Over Daiichi & Evidence of Nuclear Criticalities
    BLACK BLOB Visible on the Tepco Cam over common spent fuel pool:”

    Without having looked at any wind data, why would i tend to think that one plausible source for such emanations could be on the mainland?
    Of course that would be impossible coming from such a beacon of truth such as the mainland, neh?

    Of course there is the fact that any news concerning Daichi 5 & 6 (and the spent common pool) not to mention Daiini or any other site (except the upcoming Oi maintenance shut-downs) are all-but non-existent as far as i know.

    What we have is more than one group hanging out in limited ways.
    I do so wish they would stop “hanging out” and get some real work done! Twits.

    Wait a moment, i take the term “twits” back. Even a twit is useful for something.

  6. There was a strange black blob sighted today over the common spent fuel pool. There was much discussion about it because it looked a lot like black smoke, although it pulsed in a very odd way.

    Enenews either suffered an electronic glitch and lost data or was subject to an attack designed to remove recent comments.

    I wouldn’t be so paranoid but the evidence of criticalities occurring is pretty indisputable and we know something is driving all the recent media flurry.

    My family has all felt very bad this week and the southern jet stream was overhead. We had headaches, nose bleeds, and diarrhea without any signs of viral or bacterial infection.

    It could be a low-grade virus. That is what I’m hoping it is.

    It could all be coincidental, but I’m thinking its not.

    Give me shelter.

    • Majia, I hope you and your family feel better.

      I wonder what causes the black blob. If it is from the common fuel pool, and it is going up, we all know that it’s curtains. is lighting up like a Christmas tree. Lots of reports of joint pain… strontium-90 will make short work of our immune systems.

      We don’t know how much is atmospheric contamination from Daiichi, and how much is coming off the Pacific. The plumes from the plant eventually move away, but the ocean-to-land component just keeps going, and going, and going…

    • I wonder if it more likely that their computing systems suffer degenerative effects . Remember that every radionuclide influences their neighboring environment’s electrical charge eventually, not to mention chaotic effects of gamma.

      Really though, they could pretty much say anything, maybe even the truth, and few would believe, i gather.

      I know not for certain. Just a thought.

  7. Thanks again Bobby for all. Great pic girls.

    It has been a while. Take care of yourself the best you can. We need you.

    To summarize;
    with all the news these days, it would be hard for the SG Moon not to see the nuclear FUBAR in Japan. I
    was shocked that the VIP I was working with was shocked by the contamination found at the Emperors residence. That post was hopefully

    With the new releases, I’m gonna half to install an online radiation detector. The black cat model seems to be the one needs

    In addition, my birthday is coming up I am definitely going to get the

    The place I shop at regularly tests the food for contamination and the mushrooms have consistently been found to have cesium in them. Other foods have been okay….

    I am lucky my wife follows the no milk , no fish for our kids, actually no sea products….. Nobody else around me seems to be concerned….talk about bizzaro world…..

    Bobby, what is your take on the the radiation detectors above???


    • That gamma spectrometer one looks nice! I would get a plutonium detector tho, if I could afford it.

      Secretary-General Moon may have the power to overrule the IAEA, the UN organization that is driving the cover-up. I believe the IAEA is the reason we don’t have an international, politically independent team of experts at Fukushima. They don’t want us to know something… probably nuclear weapons development. So the world dies in order to keep us in darkness.

  8. I wish to thank you ALL,….I feel your prayers and unconditional love! Shine and NoNukes,, your words make me feel JOY, not sorrow. For a moment at least. I shall try to envision that healing light,…be in it,…and try to believe my babies are there with me as well. I want to be with them enough to GO!

    Bless you ALL,…I love you!

      • Thank you majia,….you all mean the WORLD to me,…and the comments and compassion are VITAL to me now! Bless you and your Dear Ones too majia!

        And NoNukes,….I couldn’t have handled loosing ENENEWS and my son,…without your UNFAILING comments of love and support! May God richly reward you in my stead!-Amen. I love you.

        • I wanted to read to you a little, seven lines each day if you like, in faith that it promotes some healing and strength from our Father.

          The Song of Solomon

          1 The song of songs, which is Solomon’s.
          Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.
          Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins love thee.
          Draw me, we will run after thee: the king hath brought me into his chambers: we will be glad and rejoice in thee, we will remember thy love more than wine: the upright love thee.
          5 I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.
          Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother’s children were angry with me: they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.
          7 Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?

          • The Song of Solomon, called in the Vulgate and Septuagint, “The Song of Songs,” from the opening words. This title denotes its superior excellence, according to the Hebrew idiom; so holy of holies, equivalent to “most holy” (Ex 29:37); the heaven of heavens, equivalent to the highest heavens (De 10:14).


            “Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD’S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.” Deuteronomy 10:14

          • Thank’s Bobby. That sure is some good info.

            (King Solomon speaking)
            8. If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, and feed thy kids beside the shepherd’s tables.
            I have compared thee, O my love, to a company of horses in Pharaoh’s chariots.
            Thy cheeks are comely with rows of studs of silver.
            While the king sitteth at his table, my spikenard sendeth forth the smell therof.
            A bundle of myrrh is my wellbeloved unto me; he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts.
            My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.
            Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves eyes.
            Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: also our bed is green.
            The beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of fir.

        • Have not forgotten you. Am not perfect; far from it.

          May you gain strength in Jesus name.

          2:1 I AM the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys.
          As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
          As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
          He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
          Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love.
          His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.
          I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.

        • 2:8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
          My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.
          My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
          For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
          The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
          The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
          O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.
          Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
          My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.
          Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.

        • 3 By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
          I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
          The watchmen that go about the city found me: to whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soul loveth?
          It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother’s house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me.
          I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.

    A light rain fell, enough to cover the ground. I wiped down the windshield and part of the top of the car with a paper towel. Most of the water had already evaporated, so this contains car grime, but grime had previously measured fairly low. On the other hand, black aeolian dust on the ground and surfaces exposed to rain often test high. I was surprised to get this reading. The flooring of the genkan measured 0.1-0.155µSv/hr, almost negligible background against this reading. I placed the material in a plastic ziploc bag and am waiting to see if it decays like radon or more like a longer-lived isotope such as cesium.

  11. quote: “Japan to issue gravest Fukushima nuclear warning in two years-agency […] Japan will dramatically raise its warning about the severity of a toxic water leak at the Fukushima nuclear plant, its nuclear watchdog said on Wednesday, its most serious action since the plant was destroyed […] The deepening crisis at the Fukushima plant will be upgraded from a level 1 “anomaly” to a level three “serious incident”‘”

    quoted from Reuters:

    I see some things in this Topic that fly in the face of this pronouncement.
    No surprise, they seem to have lied again, minimizing the current emergency.
    Muey Bastardos!

    • I think kez is richard. Or maybe just a co-worker. Anyway, I have found it convenient to just think/do the opposite of whatever they say. It simplifies life!

      For example, when I first read richard’s posts, I was 1) a vegetarian, 2) trying to be a good atheist (impossible when raised Catholic) 3) thinking that those chemtrail people were kooks. After reading richard’s writing from the same perspective…

      Now I eat meat, pray and watch the chemtrails myself on a regular basis. Bacon is delicious! 🙂

      I think the problems at Enenews are shared at many sites, and are not caused by popularity, Syria, nor Iran. For the record.

    Radnet down and the Nasdaq down. NYSE shutting down systems.

    I think a major event is happening at Fuku and the world’s stock markets are acting to protect Japan’s economy from collapsing.

    The Japanese are not alone responsible for this disaster. All nuclear nations play a role, especially the US given its relationship with Japan.

    WE must evacuate people in Japan most at risk. North American needs to protect citizens from fallout and ocean contamination.



    • If it is not begun soon, they may yet moronically cause a panic that leads to casualties, even deaths.

      I remember a professor that calculated that Tokyo had only 3 years, about 4-6 months into the Mega-Disaster, iirc. He was “pooh-pooh’ed” when he issued his prognostication. For me it helped start a personal wake-up call as to how serious the situ in fuku likely was.

      Media seem educated in word and image craft, generally not science.

      “Oh yeah. They say it’s nothing. Phew. No need to look into it then.”
      “They’re the EXPERTS.”
      “We could send a camera crew, but nobody wants to go near that place.”
      B:”Why they scared of a little radiation?”
      “No, it’s cause insurance won’t cover them there.”
