HAZMAT in Ukraine on Thursday, 30 April, 2015 at 08:36 (08:36 AM) UTC.

Radioactive ashes and dust caused by the forest fire in exclusion zone of Chernobyl nuclear power plant is expected to fall today in Kiev - during the previous days of the fire the radioactive precipitation fell in Belarus. Today, the wind will change and precipitation will fall on Kiev, whose residents will feel cinder of the fire already by dinner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, contrary to Kiev's announcement yesterday, the forest fire did trigger a release of radiation from the Chernobyl area.

Physicists say Chernobyl wildfire causes no radiation hazard, environmentalists disagree

Russian experts have disagreed about the possible radiation hazard for the residents of areas close to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant exclusion zone as a result of wildfires there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is if the storage for spent fuel rods catches fire.

St. Louis burning: America’s atomic legacy haunts city

Lupus causes a patient’s immune system to turn on its own body, attacking healthy joint and organ tissues. It is most common in middle-aged women such as Nickel, but has recently been linked to exposure to uranium.

That’s what Nickel thinks caused her lupus. She’s since found out that at least three other people from her childhood neighborhood also have the disease. They all grew up in a neighborhood bordered by a suburban St. Louis creek that was contaminated with nuclear weapons waste for decades before any cleanup operations started.

There may still be radioactive waste in the creek, which regularly floods parks, businesses, and neighborhoods — most of which have never been tested for radioactivity and remain open to the public with no notification of the potential risks.

Worst fire since 1992 getting close to Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine

According to him, about 400 hectares of forest are engulfed in flames. "At 18.30 the situation with forest fires around Chernobyl has deteriorated. The flame is again engulfing the forest at the approaches to Chernobyl NPP. Upper level fire and sharp gusts of wind created a serious threat of fire spreading 20 km away from the Chernobyl NPP", - reported Avakov.

Because of the fire in Chernobyl the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk immediately arrived at the area and convened the Commission on Emergency Situations. The national guard and Interior Ministry units have been called up.

"Yatsenyuk and officers of the Emergency Situations Service are working on site, in the vicinity of the line of fire," - writes the Minister of the Interior.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem are those plutonium burial pits. where Chernobyl disposed of the spent reactor fuel rods. They are highly radioactive and highly flammable. If they catch fire, the resulting spread of radiation will dwarf the original Chernobyl disaster!

This will make the world sorry it put a CIA death squad in charge of chernobyl

The fire encompasses the plutonium burial areas. According to State Emergency Service (GSChS) the fire blazes already near the village. It is 13 km from the station. People are close to panic. The Deputy Director on scientific work of the Museum of Chernobyl, Anna Royal, said:

The fire had already moved in close to Chernobyl, the radioactive waste burial site. There is one of the most polluted places. Nearby the burial of radioactive waste. Plutonium is one of the most dangerous elements that infects the haematopoietic system of a person. As long as nobody touches it, this element is not dangerous. But if in the street the wind and the fire, plutonium particles can rise a meter and be transported over long distances.

Meanwhile, as reported by the interior Minister Arsen Avakov, to extinguish the fire involved the national guard. In Kiev, there are rumors that some deputies of the Verkhovna Rada and members of the government have taken out of town for their families.

Ukraine: Massive Forest Fire Threatens Abandoned Chernobyl Nuclear Plant

Emergency crews in Ukraine are trying to stop a massive forest fire from spreading towards the abandoned Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatesenyuk has flown over the area in the north of the country.

There was a warning that high winds were blowing the flames towards Chernobyl where, 29 years ago this week, a reactor fire led to the world’s worst nuclear disaster.

A 30 kilometre exclusion zone remains in place around the plant, which is still contaminated by radioactive particles.

Forest fires heading for Chernobyl nuclear plant – Ukraine Interior Ministry

The Ukrainian National Guard has been put on high alert due to worsening forest fires around the crippled Chernobyl nuclear power plant, according to Ukraine Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.

Earlier the country's emergency ministry said there was no danger posed to the sealed-off power plant from the three forest fire flashpoints in the region.

Scientists find radioactive WWII aircraft carrier off San Francisco coast

The USS Independence saw combat at Wake Island and other decisive battles against Japan in 1944 and 1945 and was later blasted with radiation in two South Pacific nuclear tests. The Navy deliberately sank the contaminated ship in 1951 south of the Farallon Islands.

The rediscovery of the USS Independence offers a fascinating glimpse into American military history and raises old questions about the safety of the Farallon Islands Radioactive Waste Dump -- a vast region overlapping what is now a marine sanctuary where the federal government dumped nearly 48,000 barrels of low-level radioactive waste between 1946 and 1970.

A US Citizen And An Italian Were Killed In A US Drone Strike

The White House says that two prisoners, an American and an Italian, passed on in Pakistan recently as the aftereffect of a United States-dispatched automaton strike that additionally executed two US subjects included with Al-Qaeda.

"It is with huge distress that we as of late inferred that a US government counterterrorism operation in January killed two pure prisoners held by Al-Qaeda since 2011," peruses an announcement discharged by the White House press office on Thursday morning.

Drone likely landed on prime minister’s office this week; cesium may be from Fukushima No. 1

A drone carrying a small amount of radioactive cesium that was found on the roof of the prime minister’s office may have landed there in the last few days, investigative sources said Thursday, as authorities moved to beef up security and weighed regulating drone flights.

When Prime Minister Shinzo Abe used the helipad on the roof on March 22 to fly to Kanagawa Prefecture for a graduation ceremony at the National Defense Academy, the four-propeller drone was not there and no staff members had visited the roof since then, the sources said.

More Illegally Dumped Radioactive Waste Found on Somalia’s Coast

Yesterday the BBC reported that radiation levels at the crippled Fukushima reactor site are ten million times normal levels. As the oceans near the damaged nuclear plant are becoming contaminated with increasing amounts of nuclear radiation, concerns are growing about how much radioactive poison the planet’s seas can withstand.

However, although it is not receiving anywhere near as much attention as the unfolding disaster in Japan, the massive amounts of illegally dumped radioactive nuclear waste that are still being thrown into Somalia’s oceans potentially could prove to be an even more deadly catastrophe.

Tepco to abandon the second robot in Reactor 1 again / Camera went out of order due to high level of radiation

On 4/20/2015, Tepco announced they are going to leave the second robot in Reactor 1 as well.

From 4/18 to 4/19/2015, the second robot investigated the first robot that stopped moving inside PCV (Primary Containment Vessel), and they concluded it had one of the wheels stuck between the gratings though they did not release sufficient visual reports.

They need to transform the second robot to let it out of PCV, but one of the cameras was found out of order to control the transformation.

The cause is assumed to be the excessive level of radiation.

As a result, Tepco has decided to abandon the second robot and two of the robots did not bring more than the data they were supposed to send from PCV.

Pumps at Fukushima plant halted, toxic water leaking into ocean - TEPCO

All the eight water transfer pumps at the Fukushima 1 nuclear power station have been shut down due to a power outage, leading to a leak of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean, the plant’s operator said.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) reported a power outage on Tuesday, according to Kyodo news agency. It follows the line of the toxic leaks that were reported in February, when at one point around 100 tons of highly radioactive water leaked from one the plant’s tanks.

Mystery 'Blob' Discovered by UW Scientists

SEATTLE — Ever since tropical fish started appearing in waters near Seattle, and emaciated seals began washing up on California beaches, the word “odd” has being thrown around the halls of the University of Washington-based Joint Institute for the Study of Atmosphere and Ocean with increasing regularity.

Now, scientists suspect a large, warm mass of water in the Pacific Ocean called the “warm blob” is to blame.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: The only way a warm blob would hold together is if it the plume from an undersea volcano. But you will get the blame for it anyway.

Japan considers evaporation, storage of tritium-laced Fukushima water

Nice. Removes the evaporation part of the evaporation/condensation process spreading Fukushima radiation around the world.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: Tritium is a highly profitable commercial product, used in watch dials, emergency lights, gunsights, and so forth. Tritium sells for about $12,000 a gram! Japan ought to commercialize their considerable holdings by setting up a refining process, and use the revenue from the sale of Tritium to finance further cleanup!

Thorium Remix - Is Thorium a Safe and Extraordinarily Alternative to Traditional Nuclear Power?

Thorium is readily available & can be turned into energy without generating transuranic wastes. Thorium’s capacity as nuclear fuel was discovered during WW II, but ignored because it was unsuitable for making bombs. A liquid-fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR) is the optimal approach for harvesting energy from Thorium, and has the potential to solve today’s energy/climate crisis. LFTR is a type of Thorium Molten Salt Reactor (Th-MSR). This video summarizes over 6 hours worth of thorium talks given by Kirk Sorensen and other thorium technologists.

PNAC Project for a New American Century War Plan Map

Remember: when confused, when all other analysis seems to fail to make sense, come back to The Map, the PNAC Project for a New "American" Century. The duplicitous and misleading title of the project establishing Israel's (City of London's) empire that used American post 9/11 (inside job) concocted anti-Muslim enmity, its resources, its military, economic, and political might that will become the dominant political power of the planet long after the United States has been destroyed and left held responsible for the horrors visited on the world via the so-called "war on terror".

TEPCO - No Technology Exists To Stop Fukushima Death

Anyone with a brain could have told you back in 2011 at the time of the Fukushima nuclear triple melt down that Tokyo Electric (Tepco) was lying about the true condition of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant No. 1 (“Dai-ichi”). Four years later, Tepco officials have finally admitted that it may not be technologically possible to decommission the plant.

Law changed so nuclear waste dumps can be forced on local communities

Nuclear waste dumps can be imposed on local communities without their support under a new law rushed through in the final hours of parliament.

Under the latest rules, the long search for a place to store Britain’s stockpile of 50 years’ worth of the most radioactive waste from power stations, weapons and medical use can be ended by bypassing local planning.

Tepco: Technology To Decommission Fukushima Needs To Be Invented

Richard Wilcox, PhD
Activist Post

Anyone with a brain could have told you back in 2011 at the time of the Fukushima nuclear triple meltdown that Tokyo Electric (Tepco) was lying about the true condition of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant No. 1 (“Dai-ichi”). Four years later, Tepco officials have finally admitted that it may not be technologically possible to decommission the plant.

In the case of Tepco (Tipkill), the facts are overwhelming that not only was Fukushima an “accident waiting to happen” but rather “a foregone conclusion.” The location of the plant on soft fill soil at a low altitude near the ocean in a tsunami zone was the first big mistake of the planners, who must have graduated from the Homer Simpson school of donutology. Cost-cutting, corruption and incompetence is part of the well-documented history, which ultimately led to the triple meltdowns...

TEPCO under fire after hiding massive radioactive waste leak at Fukushima for a full year

A major bombshell has dropped concerning the failed cleanup efforts at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. The shuttered plant's operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), has apparently been hiding for an entire year the fact that radioactive waste has been quietly pouring into the ocean from an onsite drainage ditch.

Sputnik News reports that TEPCO, which is also managing remediation efforts at the site (with guidance from the Japanese government), concealed from the public the fact that highly contaminated radioactive water has been flowing from the drainage ditch directly into the ocean. Local fishermen and others have since expressed outrage over the news.
