☢ [Video] New Chernobyl Shelter Into Final Construction Phase ☢

It has now been 4 years since the Fukushima disaster and now finally after 29 years the biggest engineering project in history, is entering it's final construction phase. The giant steel arch of Ukraine have been built to seal off nuclear fuel buried inside reactor four which blew up in 1986. It has taken 29 years and 40 countries to acquire the money to make such a engineering project.

2.15 Billion Euro Chernobyl Arch is big enough to house the Statue of Liberty
Big enough to house the Statue of Liberty
The huge steel arch will entomb Chernobyl's reactor four, and slash the risk of another radioactive disaster. Standing 360 feet (100 meters) tall, and 843 feet (260 meters) wide, the arch is held together by 680,000 bolts. Built by 500.000 workers the giant radioactive arch of Ukraine is big enough to house the Statue of Liberty.

The shelter, will house the nuclear reactor damaged in the 1986 disaster, and the old concrete structure built to cover it which is approaching the end of its life.

The safe confinement is expected to reduce radioactive emissions drastically.

But the 30-kilometre exclusion zone will remain contaminated.

“The area of exclusion zone will not be free of nuclear waste because there is the intention to have the nuclear waste storages in the exclusion zone, so there will be a permanent waste management operation,” said Vince Novak, Director of Nuclear Safety at the European Bank for Reconstruction & Development (EBRD).

Once ready, the shelter will be pushed onto rails to cover the reactor. It is hoped to become operational by the second half of 2017.

Experts say it will be another 300 years before it’s safe to live in the area.

“The ark is protecting the sarcophagus where there’s a lot of nuclear and toxic waste. It will be safe to live here after at least 10 radioactive half-lives have passed. An average radioactive half-life lasts 30 years,” said Volodymyr Verbytskyi, an engineer controlling the exclusion zone.

So the immediate area will remain a ghost town.

The cost of the shelter is 2.15 billion euros.

The EU, members of the G7, Russia, Switzerland and other countries are all donors with the EBRD contributing 675 million euros.

Watch the video

Euronews correspondent Sergio Cantone reports from Chernobyl:

“So the construction of the sheltering structure continues according to schedule. The biggest problem will come afterwards and it’s about removing all the radioactive elements in reactor number 4. At the moment a technical solution seems still to be a long way off.

So just like Fukushima there is no technical solution to the continuing contamination of the environment by "super safe" nuclear power.

☢ The 1995 Experiment That Could Have Ended Civilization ☢

It wasn't an international group of mad scientists back in 1995 that announced that they will go ahead with plans to activate their latest world-destroying device and try to create miniature black holes that could consume the entire earth and spell the end for civilization. Unlike CERN (Central Evil Research Node) "please correct me if I got the name wrong in the chat", with their Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Rocket fired at Northern Lights Norwegian rocket incident
Rocket fired at Northern Lights Norway
Back in 1995 the experiment that almost ended our civilization was something quite the opposite and the scientists had no idea that their experiment could spell the end of civilization.

On Jan. 25, 1995, Norwegian and American researchers fired a rocket into the skies of northwestern Norway to study the Northern Lights. But the four-stage rocket flew directly through the same corridor that American Minuteman III missiles, equipped with nuclear warheads, would use to travel from the United States to Moscow.

The rocket's speed and flight pattern very closely matched what the Russians expected from a Trident missile that would be fired from a US submarine and detonated at high altitude, with the aim of blinding the Russian early-warning system to prepare for a large-scale nuclear attack by the United States. The Russian military was placed on high alert, and then President Boris Yeltsin activated the keys to launch nuclear weapons. He had less than 10 minutes to decide whether to issue the order to fire.

Yeltsin left the Russian missiles in their silos, probably in part because relations between Russian and the United States were relatively trusting in 1995. But if a similar incident occurred today, as US arms expert Theodore Postol warned recently, it could quite possibly lead to nuclear catastrophe.

☢ Video of Melted Core at Fukushima Reactor 2 ☢

Fukushima Reactor 2 Melted Nuclear Core China Syndrome
This is a video showing the boiling / melting reactor core from Fukushima reactor 2. The corium is seen as a orange and sometimes light pink blob in the video taken.

I would like to thank FC in the chat for bringing this video to my attention and Nowi See on youtube who found it in the TEPCO archives and uploaded it to youtube.

Published on 27 Jan 2015 by Nowi See on youtube. You can also find the video in the TEPCO website archives if you like.

"This is the radioactive sludge and toxic water that they pretend they're doing something about. 40 minutes in underwater hell."

The Daiichi complex in Fukushima, Japan had a total of 1760 metric tons of fresh and spent nuclear fuel on site last year, according to a presentation by its owners, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco).

The most damaged Daiichi reactor, number 3, contained about 90 tons of fuel, and the storage pool above reactor 4, which the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC’s) Gregory Jaczko reported had lost its cooling water, contains 135 tons of spent fuel.
  1. The amount of fuel lost in the core melt at Three Mile Island in 1979 was about 30 tons.
  2. The Chernobyl reactors had about 180 tons when the accident occurred in 1986.
Going by the reported amount Fukushima has nearly 10 times more nuclear fuel than Chernobyl.

It also means that a single spent fuel pool at reactor 4 has 75% as much nuclear fuel as at all of Chernobyl.

But in reality it gets much worse than that..

Tepco very recently before the disaster transferred many more radioactive spent fuel rods into the storage pools. According to Associated Press, there was at the time of the earthquake and tsunami some 3,400 tons of fuel in seven spent fuel pools plus 877 tons of active fuel in the cores of the reactors.

This all totals up to 4,277 tons of nuclear fuel at Fukushima at the point of the disaster.

Which would mean that there was almost 24 times more nuclear fuel at Fukushima than Chernobyl at the time when it went full meltdown only hours after the earthquake struck the plant..

☢ Radiation From Cumbrian Nuclear-Plant Found in Food 80 Miles Away ☢

"There is no safe level of radiation. Nuclear technology... poses an ongoing threat to public health."
There is no safe level of radiation
The Daily Mail reports that Radiation released from the Cumbrian Nuclear Plant have been found 80 miles away across the border. Traces of radiation were found in fruit, potatoes and vegetables near to Dounreay nuclear power station in Caithness, in the far north-east of Scotland

Nuclear waste released from the Cumbrian reprocessing site has made fish and shellfish caught off the Dumfriesshire coast slightly radioactive.

And fish-fans in Dumfriesshire have the highest exposure to nuclear radiation of anyone north of the Border.
Despite Sellafield nuclear station being situated 80 miles away, the new report reveals that the nuclear power station is still having an impact on Scotland.

And although the levels are within safe EU limits, Sellafield and Scottish nuclear power stations have infiltrated the food chain here.

Dr Richard Dixon, director of Friends of the Earth Scotland, said: "There is no safe level of radiation. Nuclear technology... poses an ongoing threat to public health."

Traces of radiation were found in fruit, potatoes and vegetables near to Dounreay nuclear power station in Caithness, in the far north-east of Scotland.

Whilst in Chapelcross, in Dumfriesshire, nuclear radiation has made its way into the milk.

Where as at Faslane, near Helensburgh, Dunbartonshire, the destination of Britain's nuclear submarines where liquid radioactive waste is discharged into the Gareloch, beef has been revealed to contain a small amount of radiation.

The Radioactivity in Food and the Environment (RIFE) report by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa)- the Environment Agency and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) - has revealed the true extent of radiation exposure in the new report.

A spokesman for the FSA in Scotland said: "There are low levels of radiation present naturally in the environment.

"Then there are nuclear sites which discharge material as an aerial discharge into the air or liquid discharge into the sea. The discharge from the sea is more likely to affect fish and aerial discharge will get into the land.
"These are, however, very small levels of no concern to anybody."

The findings also reveal the type of person likely to have been exposed to the highest dose of radioactivity in 2013 and showed that in Scotland, those susceptible to the highest dose would be an adult eating fish caught off Dumfriesshire.

They would have consumed 0.44 MILLISIEVERTs - around 4 per cent of the EU safe limit, whilst close to Dounreay adults who consume green vegetables will get the most radiation.

The unborn children of pregnant women living within 550 yards of the Hunterston B site, in North Ayrshire - one of Scotland's two working nuclear power stations -would received the highest dose there.

Dr Richard Dixon, director of Friends of the Earth Scotland, said: "There is no safe level of radiation. Nuclear technology... poses an ongoing threat to public health."

A spokesman for Dounreay Site Restoration said: "The levels of radioactivity found in the vicinity of Dounreay are within the limits laid down in law."

A Scottish Government spokesman said: "There are stringent regulatory regimes in place for protecting the public and the environment from radiation."

The 2014 RIFE Report show doses received by members of the public living near sites, and across Scotland, were well within legal dose limits."

It should be made clear that after Fukushima the EU and US raised the maximum legal radiation dose limit.


In the US according to PEER (Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, the new standards would result in a “nearly 1000-fold increase for exposure to strontium-90, a 3000 to 100,000-fold hike for exposure to iodine-131; and an almost 25,000 rise for exposure to radioactive nickel-63” in drinking water.

EU ordinance 297/2011 raises the Maximum Levels of radiation and radioactive isotopes for food and feed to rather serious levels. In some cases, such as the case of Cesium-134 and Cesium-137, the levels are actually twice the amount of previously acceptable levels. Many of these increases are allowed in products such as infant formula and baby foods.

It should be noted that so far the new EU changes only apply to food imported from Japan. The justification behind this is that in the event of a nuclear emergency the traditional levels of acceptable radiation should be ignored so as not to cause a food shortage as a result of legal constraints.

☢ [PHOTOS] More Mutated Hermit Crab Shells on Costa Rica Beaches ☢

Hi again folks,

In the latest post by AWe seen here ☢ [PHOTOS] Mutated Hermit Crab Shells on Costa Rica Beaches ☢
We got to see pictures of some pretty extensive damage that radiation have already done to crab shells on the beaches of Costa Rica. And this next set of pictures sent from AWe seen below does not look any better, but in all this hardship it seems like someone is looking out for us and the many people affected by this disaster.. This is what AWe had to say..

AWe More affected hermit crabs)= etc. 12.11.2014

Well...., I have stopped going down everyday to do the study for reasons I explained....however, you know my boyfriend is a surfer, so I go down with him sometimes & take pictures still.....yes, he does fully realize, but he just doesn't care anymore. If everything is going away here, then he is okay with going away too. A lot of local surfers feel like that. Its just not possible for us monetarily either. We have big dreams about catching the hugest wave ever & just melting in it, although after all my research, I know that suffering & strange illness come into play, & that kind of a scenario isn't plausible. I can see his point too. I don't really want to live here on Earth if everything dies anyway...just trying to survive in a broken ecosystem? No gracias. Better to sing your death song strong. We have all done our best to mend the broken circle, sometimes to a heartbreaking level of no avail.

Today, I wanted to send you the latest. Our plants are all showing signs, but a few look like they have been taking on a lot of acid rain lately. Twisted leaves & deformed leaves. Many brown spots & discolorations. It"s not even difficult to find something strange on the beach anymore, & these pictures are just of the first bunch of hermit crabs I observed immediately today. Its happening in our house now too, as the tiny mangrove crabs that lived in our house have recently bubbled up & all died in the same manner as the beach crabs..!): Even our favorite two))=, whom I let live in one of the showers because I know they are an endangered species. I am also certain that they never had orange legs before. We are only 300 meters from the coastline, which is also an important note in which I have never previously added. Yes, that means the mangrove crabs are probably going extinct, with a lot of other species (too many insects to name) that would honestly take pages to describe..... & its in our water now...we are fully immersed. Some independent observations: Every morning there used to be a layer of bugs & jungle with so much life dancing around..., tons flying to the windows at night....., always drawn by the light, & frantically flying everywhere.

Now, our window wells etc. are so clean & devoid of insect life that I can't even believe it. The jungle is almost quiet at times...quiet!?! The spiders are making asymmetrical webs, & the webs are all yellow tinged.. like pollen....although, it is not pollen. Our cats have missing patches of fur now & seem kind of ill & without energy. The hermit crabs are evolving at tremendous rates....I have a new classification for some I like to call..."the climbers". I refrain from venturing into "climber' territory unless I see one one the edge that knows me, because at least half become fearful & drop to the ground from their elevated positions on logs & baby coconut sprouts. I don't want to disturb their efforts, as it seems difficult & want them to have some much needed rest. Obviously, they are ground dwellers who will occasionally get up to elevation in roots..however, the climbers sit up & open in their shells, clinging to a good balance point. It is really amazing to watch the adaptation unfold. I even went down once at night to observe the mass shift they are making to snail shells.

There are only a few number of those now, as they are huddling together in groups & in hidden sections of tide pools, seemingly dying very rapidly from pH & a myriad of other factors previously described. I really need to mention something very important to you. Granted, our house happens to be in the center of an ancient ring of indigenous stone balls, (which we just found out!) but the ufo activity here has been off the charts. One night they were right on our patio. The security guy for the residential area is our friend, & came over the next day saying everyone was calling & asking about the blinding lights happening all night long... & our neighbor was so scared that she has since moved. I wanted to go out & communicate with them, but my boyfriend was really scared, lights were shooting in our rooms from every angle, & wanted me to stay inside with him. Next time I am going though, for sure. Inexplicably, the next day we all felt better. My roommates wrenching stomach pain has subsided, & so has my boyfriends. <3 All my strange skin patch issues cleared up & parts of my hair that fell out are growing back. I was also having my cycle every couple of weeks (yes, I know), & since their visit, I am on a normal full moon schedule now! Which hasn't been in sync for a few years now, although I was always solid full moon since age 14. I don't know, but I figured you may appreciate this fact as well. I can't explain it.

There is a portrait included (Costa Rica Pacific Coast Hermit Crabs Photo 9)(=, & although his only visible problem is that he lives in a snail shell, I did a series of portraits of the last remaining animals & I thought you would appreciate having it. Thanks for everything, AWe

(Note from JD: I was unable to find the name of this particular red flower from Costa Rica so if anyone know please share it in the chat. And I also tried to upload the second picture taken of this flower, however for some reason unknown blogger would not let me at this time)

I am sorry to not know the real name for this plant..its very simple and just grows leaves on a stalk without flowers. I wish we would have noticed it growing, but we still can't believe it did this. Somehow it twisted all into itself & are watching it everyday to see what it does.

This is an example of one of many mangrove crabs that died in our house just recently. They would sit there bubbling for hours until they died.

Geiger Counters - Radiation Detection Meters - Handheld Radiation Detector

When it comes to radiation detection meters you really have a wide field of gadgets to choose from, however radiation detectors are the most common to use. First of all if you need to know what type of radiation you are looking for. There are Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation detectors. And also there is neutron emission of nuclear radiation. And all these different types of emissions have radiation detectors for a specific type of radiation that you can buy radiation detector for. Some also measure both Alpha and Beta. Others detect Alpha, Beta and Gamma. While others let you measure Beta and Gamma radiation.

What most people have use for though are Dosimeters you can buy a handheld radiation detector pretty cheap that are good addition to a survival kit. There are different kinds that you can use that will detect radiation. There are radiation badges that will tell you when radiation become high. Workers at nuclear power plants use these to inform them of how much radiation they have been exposed to. Now also children in the Fukushima prefecture have each been given a radiation badge so they know if they are exposed to radiation. Some come in the shape of a pen that you can carry in your pocket while other are made more compact so that you can attach them to your keychain. And then you have what is called a personal radiation monitor. These are also called Dosimeters and also normally called Geiger counters. Although not all use the Geiger-Muller Tube for the radiation detection some use a semiconductor instead. These and mostly the older geiger counters seen are pretty big to carry around, so they might not be best suited for a survival situation where you only need to carry the most important things. However if you have land and want to check radiation around the property and drinking water then these are the geiger counters to get because they are very well built units.

These are the once that you normally see people use. They have different units of radiation detection, because when it comes to radiation there are many standards used. some give the measurements in Rads, while other use Sieverts. Some have the maximum radiation value for the measured radioactivity quite low but they will still give you an idea of the amount of radiation in the area. With the units ranging from between background radiation 0.001 mSv/hr all the way up to 10 Sv/h. Normally a dosimeter will measure radiation in micro siverts per hour. If you were to walk into one of the reactor units at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant you probably would get an error reading from your dosimeter because the radiation levels are so high there.

Note that some places outside the exclusion zone in Fukushima that are too radioactive for people to live in have areas where the radiation levels are above 30 Sv/h. So if you are in a area that have high radiation the radiation detectors would also there go off the scale. However Geiger counters or radiation detectors are still favored as general purpose alpha/beta/gamma portable radiation detectors and radiation detection equipment, due to their low cost and robustness. Most come with an LCD Display that show you the radioactivity in the area. Nowdays you will even get alarm sound and the possibility to connect the device to a computer. Either with a Infrared, Bluetooth or USB connection.

So if you look at the radiation detectors for sale that have this, then these radiation detection meters will allow you to make maps of contaminated areas that show where the radiation is high and low. This also will help you to see which areas are becoming more contaminated over time. With several nuclear reactors in the US and around the world located near fault zones that makes it a danger if a big earthquake would hit the area there is always a good choice to have a radiation dosimeter avaliable. I'm sure many in Fukushima would have been grateful to have dosimeters avaliable at the time of the disaster and I am sure you to would be grateful to have a geiger counter handy when you need one.
