Increasing nuclear chain reactions at Fukushima.

Iodine-131 levels from sewage sludge have spiked in September and October in Zushi City and Chiba prefecture, Japan. Zushi is southwest of the Fukushima Daiichi plant, past Tokyo. Chiba is south of Daiichi.

Fukushima Diary has a post about the elevation on iodine in Date, Japan in July.

High levels of radioactive iodine are due to increasing criticalities in the underground coriums. In this post on September 9, I pointed out a dangerous situation had developed at the plant. The elevated levels of iodine measured at these locations appear to be due to this event. Iodine has also spiked in French river water recently.

The nuclear chain reactions going on under Daiichi are not just emitting iodine, but a host of other radioactive substances. These reactions are also heating up the coriums, which means they are moving downward faster. They are more likely to hit large pools of underground water. Water slows down the neutrons from the criticality, and they become thermal neutrons, which increase the criticality. This increases the likelihood of hydrovolcanic eruptions or other events which are caused by radioactive substances encountering water.

I see to no reason for this to stop, in the coming decades, or for hundreds or even thousands of years.

  1. I wonder how many of these deep ‘insults’ are threatening our precarious ecosystems. God’s earth, Mother Earth’s domain is crying out. See the turtles, fish, and coral over in Hawaii? Blinded sea turtles,….with cancers and lesions, bumping into coral reefs,…..babies on FB with bleeding tumors all around the nose, mouth and ears,….just like the turtles, polar bears,……and the dots are lined up too perfectly to be ignored much longer.

    Yes, criticalities, and re-criticalities are now the order of the day,…..a new fast and furious!

    #4 may, or may not have burned to smitherines,….#3 may, or may not be ‘liquified’, but no matter. Some of us knew months ago that the worst case scenario had already occurred. It is good to be ahead of the curve,….for that I thank the ART of “optimal predictions”! 🙂 As well as all her precious ‘children’! 🙂

  2. Spike in iodine-131 found in city water
    Dec 7, 2012
    Levels of radioactive iodine-131 in a city drinking-water intake rose to their highest level yet earlier this year.
    However, city and state officials noted the spike, measured Oct. 17 at the Belmont water plant, is a one-time event. It’s not a public health concern, they said, and the water remains safe to drink.
    “The biggest message is that it’s not a health issue,” said David Allard, director of the state Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Radiation Protection.
    Still, they continue to watch as they have since the issue surfaced in 2011 with more monitoring after an earthquake and tsunami severely damaged Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant.
    Officials then found that a little-known sampling program

    • If it was over the limit, …wpold they shut it down and no one would have water, ..for drink, shower, cooking, flushing commodes and more, causing the whole city to shutdown, … I think not, maybe they would do as Texas and cover up the fact that there were harmful amounts in the water !

    • “”The biggest message is that it’s not a health issue,” said David Allard, director of the state Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Radiation Protection.”

      The biggest message is that the Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Radiation Protection does not give a damn about the health of millions of children.

    PORTAGE | Residents in The Pines concerned about potentially elevated radiation levels will have to wait until January to learn if the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission will help take up their case with federal officials.
    Last month, NIRPC’s Environmental Management Policy Committee agreed to draft a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asking for a study of radiation levels in The Pines.
    The move came after a presentation by Paul Kysel and Larry Jensen of PINES — People in Need of Environmental Safety — about a study they conducted which they believe indicates elevated radiation levels in the community. Jensen is a former EPA employee and self-described “radiation expert.”
    The committee on Thursday voted on a proposal …

        • Long story. There is a Daytona connection too. Let’s just say I was accused of being an evil thug mastermind. There are people in high positions of power out there that don’t like me for some reason.

          • u crazy poll-vault pit stealing, football field burnin nut! Naw, Bobby wasn’t even actually there….he was just an ez target…

            • Vgirl, as soon as Lenny opened up the RO system to change the filters, I IMMEDIATELY got a sore throat. Strange. There is a whole spectrum of chemicals and radioactive substance in those filters.

              Something like 100 cities got wiped out by the tsunami last year. Radioactivity fell on top of the debris. Now Japan is burning the ruins of these cities… think of all the lead, asbestos, cadmium, biohazards from hospital and clinics etc etc. in addition to the radiation.
