Exposing hysteria around Fukushima

A couple of days ago the article “Fukushima poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean. But a strange conspiracy of silence reigns around the catastrophe,” which caused a lot of controversy and unrest, reigned in RuNet.

Let's start with the colorful pictures that are in this article.

This photo is presented as a map of the Pacific Ocean infestation. In fact, this is a map with calculations of the maximum height of the tsunami wave from the Japanese islands. It is taken from the article "How the vibration of earthquakes in Japan spreads to the sea throughout the world."

Photos of poor starfish taken on the beach of Lincolnshire England. For Fukushima, they have nothing to do.

A picture of trash in the ocean can only impress an ignorant user. This problem has been around for a long time.

Even if you believe in a conspiracy of silence, sooner or later information about this would be leaked to the social network. But there is silence.

And people are not indifferent to radiation. From the moment of the accident to our days, 105 objects with an increased level of radiation were detected at customs with Japan. These were cars and parts for them. That is, everything that passes through the border passes an obligatory radiation test.

For those who are experiencing, as people now live on the west coast of America, there are test results from the US nuclear laboratory made from 2011 to 2014: http://radwatch.berkeley.edu/salmon.

Exposing hysteria around Fukushima

As you can see, the figures do not exceed the permissible norms.

It turns out that the radioactive background on the west coast of America is normal. There is no evidence that a huge number of sea stars died due to the accident at a nuclear power plant in Japan. Photos of poor animals were added to elicit appropriate emotions in the reader and hide the lack of evidence.

Please note that the guilty party for this crash was General Electric. Allegedly, all these years she hides the truth from people. Those who wrote such articles are not embarrassed that it is almost impossible to hide such a global catastrophe. All of this is similar to corporate wars, where major campaigns throw mud at each other.

By the way, this is not the first time that a nuclear catastrophe is used for such purposes.

    but the evidence in this article is not impressive, but there are facts of regular discharge of water from Fokusima, the same question is where is the international commission for the investigation of the emergency, the investigation reports?

      Who's stopping you from buying a pocket dosimeter and checking the Pacific fish yourself.
      (and generally not only the Pacific ... they say that after Chernobyl, three-headed salmon are still found in the Belorussian Sea.).

      Well, in vain, here, among the residents of the Sakhalin Region, for the second year now, almost everyone has stopped wringing their third hand in their joints and almost no scales have fallen ...

      Well, how can you be like that? AND?

        rumor has it that after Chernobyl, the three-headed salmon is still found in the Belorussian Sea.

        What is true is true. He is caught by blocking the Bialowieza Strait with a net, and on the other hand they scare him with red flags, drumming and rattles, so he rushes into the net. And in the Gomel Bay, they shoot from small fry directly from the beaches, they beat him in the eye so as not to spoil the skin. wassat belay

    However, the Fukushima accident is assigned the same hazard class as Chernobyl.

    At the same time, we do not forget that Chernobyl is land, that is, the spread of radioactive dirt is fundamentally more organic, and there is the possibility of decontamination.

    I do not support conspirologists, however, I believe that Fukushima should be studied through a magnifying glass. Not the fact that there is a conspiracy, but the fact - that at the slightest opportunity, everything that can be hidden from the public will certainly be hidden.

      Here is exactly the opposite. Land has a much greater resource for the accumulation of local foci than air and water. And where water and air have long been mixed and "diluted" with the amount of substance the background to the general natural, the land will have a background that exceeds the natural one for many more decades.

        I wrote territorially. Yes, in the ocean the concentration will naturally be lower. But on land, you can mix / bury and the dirt will remain there. But in the ocean, long-lived isotopes that are involved in the biological circuit, due to the similarity of elements (strontium - calcium and the like) - it is generally not known what long-term consequences will be. Also, the number of victims of the Hiroshima bombardment, who died not from radiation sickness, but from damage to the hereditary apparatus, in subsequent generations, is unknown.

        Otherwise, all the land from Chernobyl would be torn up and flooded in the ocean. Or SNF after extraction of useful isotopes would not be cemented, but simply poured into the ocean.

        it’s not true, water has much more catastrophic consequences, radioactive water is carried away by the current, radioactive suspension of decay products settles to the bottom as it weighs, those that accumulate more easily than those that are heavier in the end. plankton rises from the depths, having gathered this nastiness and voila, the food chain sooner or later will be on the tables of megacities, there are always holes in the controls as in the legislation, in the case of the earth everything is much more controlled (disorderly stolen does not count), when the Chernobyl NPP is in radius 30 km were eliminated as much as possible, the plantations which were heavily phoned along with the ground were cleaned and under a layer of concrete, flushing water in concrete tanks, the surface with a high background was removed and immersed in concrete, as a result, by 1995, the exclusion zone was lasted from 30km to 10 (this is a reality, but in order to loot the Ukrainians have not removed 30 kilometers of danger so far), and even a radius of 10 km is forbidden to live and engage in agricultural activity, it is absolutely safe, about Fukushima You can’t say this, the government will expand the ban on seafood from the coastline further and further for almost 5 years and has reached 500 km, therefore, as for water, it’s easier, I can confidently say that this is not so, that's all Well, radioactive dirt is not chemical It wishes to set up reducing the danger of concentration

    The author is trying to point out the use of dirty tricks of the information war in corporate conflicts of interest. It is not a matter of the corporations, but the fact that these information stuffs ultimately influence the opinion of people regarding any nuclear energy development projects.

    No one denies the negative impact of the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, on the marine flora and fauna in the coastal zone. Also, no one denies having been unintentional leaks of various rubbish (about targeted dumping of rubbish you personally held a candle and stood next to the pipe with a radiometer)? However, the scale of the consequences of the media is greatly exaggerated, while it is clearly intentional and biased.

    I really don't like the silence around Fukushima! I live in the Far East and the consequences of the accident apply to all Far Easterners. And through many seafood and on the mainland. Only silence is around, as if there is no Pacific Chernobyl

      If you, like me, really live in the Far East, then take the trouble to make inquiries, at least in the regional department of the Ministry of Emergencies, about what kind of control work is being done. What measurements are taken and with what frequency and why there is silence (Suddenly quiet because there is nothing to be afraid of and everything is normal? No?), Before hinting about the next "all gone dying".

      That's true, these tantrums have already gotten ... The inhabitants of industrial cities have more to worry about.

      everything that passes through the temporary storage warehouse when imported into the territory of the Russian Federation passes through "Yantar". Any increased background is recorded, disassembly is carried out, whose / where / why, if illegal, the criminal case is initiated. Everything has been worked out all over the country by customs officers a long time ago.

      For those who are afraid there is a DV fish, I’ll remind you that if you have a toilet bowl / porcelain stoneware / clay pots / tile / brick or concrete walls / floor slabs / marble countertops / gypsum magnets on the refrigerator and even breakthrough things made from natural minerals, then the background radioactive in your apartment is about 20-30 percent ABOVE - than natural ... And constantly influencing you ..

      ZY the only benefit that Russia received from the United States in the 20th century is the "Yantar" system, they were very much afraid of the spread of the DRM from us ...... They squeezed out our then rulers for its protection - in the end we are protected from the delivery to us of all rubbish

      don’t worry, this accident is not terrible to the Far East, the matter is in the currents, and it moves from the East China Sea to the Japanese passing between Hokaido and Sakhalin, you have to worry about hawaii, that’s where all this radioactive turbidity moves

    It all sounds like corporate wars

    Maybe. But when a catastrophe happened, I emphasize not an accident, but a catastrophe, the residents of the Far East were, to put it mildly, not entirely comfortable. Whether the radioactive background in the United States will increase or not does not interest me. Where is America and the same Russian Primorye? During this period, I rested on our sea in Andreevka (for those who do not know - this is "Primorsky Crimea"), so I want to note that the number of tourists has decreased. People were really excited about the accident at the nuclear power plant near the Far East.

        Here you are playing too much with the Japanese. There were facts, though the excess was not fatal in the first days after the disaster. But it’s enough to recall the evacuation in Japan and the warnings of our Ministry of Emergency Situations to understand the reaction of a Russian resident of the Far East ..

    Due to seismic activity, Japan with its nuclear power plant is a time bomb.
    Japan must be banned from building and operating nuclear power plants.

    Sorry, dear author, but I don’t have a bit of skiing. You want to say that regular discharge of poison into the ocean is normal? Of course it happens all the time, but this is not the norm. In Europe, in the Middle Ages, mud was poured directly onto the streets and the number of epidemics and corpses went wild. The oceans of the world wash everything around and there is no guarantee that the activation of the Zika virus itself did not occur under the influence of radiation received through the food chain ...

    (There is a theory that the human mind is a mutation caused by a surge of radiation)

    It is precisely hysteria that needs to be raised so that, on a geopolitical scale, children from distant islands would not know how to send cartridges and "burn rags." The earth must burn! When everyone is yelling, you need to yell. This is the fashion now. To say that the Boeing was shot down in Russia - let them prove that they are not elephants. Spawn conspiracy theories about the plane of the Polish president on social networks, and after a while, when for the layman the concrete and obviousness of official evidence is not obvious and much has been erased from memory. Blame! Blame!! Blame!!!

    Until they undertake to make excuses - until then it is true, and if they undertake, then .... all the more true. These are the methods of "social networking". All politics are now based on "likes".

    the author, why spread all sorts of nonsense, I’ll explain, in Fukushima, two reactors with burn through the walls of the reactor, the fuel partially came out, and two reactors with depressurization of the first circuit, all four of the fuel were not withdrawn and needs to be closed (like at the Chernobyl NPP) or cooling with water, without a closed cycle, it is known that no work has been done to remove fuel, let alone capping, and it will not be, so where has this water gone with the fission products of nuclear fuel from damaged reactors for five years? , Behold four reactor depressurized, and when pumping water it does not merge into a single container for closed-loop and poured WHERE? correctly. in a natural tank, the Pacific Ocean, it takes at least a couple of tons of water per second to cool one reactor, multiply by 4, and multiply by minutes, hours, days, years, it’s a pretty big number. STA KM FROM THE COAST LINE, THEN 200 KM, AND NOW 500 KM, so you can hysteria. You can not hysteria, the fact is as it is

      I recall the replicas of the Japanese press in 1986 (after the Chernobyl accident), where the USSR was called the African country with nuclear reactors.
      Z.Y. A strange coincidence: in the last 2-3 years off the coast of Australia, cases of detection of cancerous tumors in mollusks transmitted to other marine organisms have become more frequent. Most likely, this is not related to the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
