Bobby1’s Blog: Why use sewage sludge as an indicator of fission?

Not only is fission still occuring in the 260 tonnes of missing nuclear fuel, it has increased since the meltdown began!

I’d sure like to see the latest iteration of this graph!

Why do I (always) use this particular graph to make this point?

Iodine-131 has a half life of 8 days.
Iodine-131 is only made during nuclear fission.
So, Iodine-131 is a great indicator of recent fission.
On a graph like this, over time, you can see the fussion events wax and wane.
You can see from this graph that not only is fission still occuring, but that fission events are increasing in intensity over time.
Why use sewage sludge as an indicator of fission?
And why Tokyo, when the data is available for a number of towns?
Because sewage sludge is what is left after drinking water passes through people.
The Iodine-131 from the 3 missing cores is in the drinking water.
People drink it, cook with it, shower in it, and excrete it.
That is how Iodine-131 ends up as “sewage sludge”.
Any why Tokyo?
Because 35,000,000 Japanese live there still, and are being poisoned by Fukushima radiation every day, more and more as the years go on.
If you are a resident of Tokyo, get out now, any way you can.
If you want to live a normal life, don’t even visit Tokyo.
Tokyo is a city that is no longer fit for human life. 😦

Iodine-131 rises in Chiba prefecture.
Posted on December 19, 2013
The most recent measurements of iodine-131 in sewage sludge from Chiba prefecture indicate the highest amount of I-131 since August. The last measurement was actually made on Dec. 3. It is the third highest measurement since May 2011.

Iodine-131 from Gunma prefecture remained relatively low, as of Nov. 26.
Iodine measurements are affected by wind patterns and rainfall, as well as Fukushima emissions. Chiba is south of Fukushima, and a north wind would blow this way more often in the winter. Gunma is west or southwest of the plant. East winds prevail more often in spring and summer.
Iodine-131 is associated with criticalities. Fukushima Diary has a story about groundwater rising at the plant, and appearing at ground level. Water slows neutrons down and makes criticalities more likely, for any corium on or near ground level.

UPDATE: I have added Tokyo measurements below. These are the maximum concentrations of I-131 in sludge incineration ash detected in all Tokyo facilities at each reporting period. A value of zero means the amount was less than the minimum detectable amount.

From Current Argus: “WIPP discovers fallen roof”

CARLSBAD >> Mining and Ground Control engineers discovered on Jan. 15 that a portion of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant ceiling in Panel 3 had fallen, officials said Wednesday.

The roof damage was found during a routine ground control and bulkhead inspection by the WIPP geotechnical staff and was estimated to be 8 feet long and 8 feet wide, with a thickness of 24 inches, WIPP officials said in a release.

“The roof had already fallen before the geotechnical staff found it,” said Tim Runyon, WIPP recovery communications manager.

The fallen piece of ceiling was found in the Panel 3 access drift of the WIPP underground, an area that is already labeled as restricted due to low levels of radiation contamination in the area, the release said.

Runyon said that problems in the restricted areas of the underground were anticipated after geotechnical inspections in November.

According to the news release, during these inspections, seven areas in the underground were identified as restricted areas due to significant bolt loss. All bolting activities at WIPP were halted since the February 2014 incidents until this past November.

“This event highlights the need to continue prioritizing roof bolting and ground control in both the contaminated and uncontaminated areas of the WIPP underground facility in order to ensure safety and habitability in the underground,” a WIPP news release said.

Jim Blankenhorn said at the January town hall that crews have removed over 300 damaged bolts and installed about 280 new bolts since bolting began in mid-November 2014.

Roof bolting in the underground started in mid-November, and WIPP officials have stated that bolting is a priority in the recovery process to ensure safety in the underground.

“Engineers have indicated that the area where the roof fall occurred can be re-bolted and recovered,” the news release said.

Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds Energy Education on Radio Ecoshock, released Oct 29, 2014:

Alex Smith, host of RadioEcoshock (at 10:30 in): We’ve heard almost nothing about the impacts [of the Fukushima catastrophe] on people in that region. There are accounts coming out of there of strange tumors, kids dying, pets dying — what have you heard? Can we ever expect an honest accounting from Japanese authorities?
Arnie Gundersen, nuclear engineer (emphasis added): That’s a pretty good summary, frankly. We continue to get information from people who live there about cancer rates — and illnesses in general, not just cancer. We think of radiation as a cancer causing thing, but it also causes many other ailments. Much higher incidences of a whole range of illnesses than they had in 2010, the year before the accident… We’re also working with doctors in Japan, and some brave doctors are saying that they’ve been threatened — that their hospital rights have been threatened — if you tell your patient this illness is radiation related you’ll lose your right to practice and things like that. So there’s enormous pressure on the medical community to tell the patients that what they’re experiencing is not at all related to radiation. The key is statistics, and the question is when will the statistics be released for mortality, morbidity, and general illnesses… We’re not seeing the data. The medical community now has to file every report that it writes with the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency, before it’s issued. So if you’re a hospital, and you’ve got mortality data, you’re not allowed to issue that to the public until those reports have been cleared by the IAEA. Well, Article II of the IAEA charter is to promote nuclear power. So even if the hospital was conscientious — there’s a lot of political pressure not to be — but even if it was conscientious, there’s another step in the process, and they’ve got to clear an IAEA hurdle before those numbers are released. It’s truly frightening, the pressure the medical community is undergoing in Japan. Very few of them are willing to tell the truth.
Arnie Gundersen, nuclear engineer, Oct. 20, 2014 (at 15:00 in): There’s experts out there like me – independent experts – who are saying that as many as a million cancers may result.
