    Fukushima Nuclear Disaster updates

    Post by Cichorei Kano on Thu Mar 07, 2013 9:12 am

    Radiation levels within 80 kilometers of Fukushima Daiichi have dropped 40%. Readings were taken 1 meter from the ground on November 16 (2012). These were compared readings taken Nov. 5, 2011. The reductions are due to a combination of things. First, half of the decrease is due to the radioactive decay of the Cesium contamination. Cs-134, comprising about half of the total for the element, has a 2 year half-life. Thus Cs-134 decay was about a third of what existed in 2011 due to natural decay. The Cs-137 isotope has a 30 year half-life, so its rate of decay had not changed much over the year.

    And much more:

    Astronomic amounts of radiation detected in Japanese fish due to to Fukushima accident

    Astronomic amounts of radiation detected in Japanese fish

    "The Asahi Shimbun newspaper has reported that a greenling registered 510,000 becquerels per kilogram. That's 5,100 times the Japanese government's standard.

    A rockfish caught in the area in mid-February contained 277,000 becquerels per kilogram." (...)

    "Roslin noted that these cesium levels have received virtually no recognition by North American journalists or scientists." (...)

    Sounds like soon you will be able to save on electricity by being able to light your house with sushi ...
