Thursday, September 26, 2013 Op-Ed: Fukushima Nuclear Disaster - You Should Know, This Could Be a Global Killer

This is opposite the editorial page, just Ophir Gottlieb's opinion and research (not Livevol). But every once in a while I write a story that goes well beyond the scope of just finance because this world goes well beyond finance. So, to my 780,000+ readers, I hope this is helpful and insightful. It is not intended to be fear mongering, it's the best I can do using "Just the facts Ma'am" while offering opinions now and again. Ultimately, the facts are warped, hidden and manipulated for whatever agenda / propoganda is needed. So, this is the best I could do to inform you of what might be the single most important event in our lifetimes.

NB: I have listed the contact information for every member in the house of representatives for every state and territory at the end of this article.

I will start with "14 Things You Should Know" about the disaster. Facts, figures and opinions I have compiled from various sources. Please read the 14 highlights, at the very least.

But, there's one opinion I will share up front, the nuclear power plant disaster (it is a disaster) needs your attention. And here's why...

Ophir says: If all you can (or want) to read is the 'highlights' section (below), that's OK, I hope it's helpful. But there are more details, and they will affect your life in some way. It's tautological. This doesn't have to be "a global killer" or whatever big, crazy, scary term we can find but, this problem is for real and millions of people will die and without global intervention, more than a billion people will die. That's the truth.

The sources I used for this article are:

I. Fukushima apocalypse: Years of ‘duct tape fixes’ could result in ‘millions of deaths’ August 17, 2013

II. Tokyo mayor claims Japan PM lied about Fukushima September 24, 2013

III. Let the world help at Fukushima No. 1 September 24, 2013

IV. Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster (Wikipedia) September 24, 2013 NB: Always question Wikipedia as a source -- do not necessarily take it as fact.

I also warn readers to the fact that a lot of the information that is spread via Facebook and Twitter is accurate, but often times two-years old. So we'll watch youtube interviews from CNN (or whatever) in which the interviewee makes statements relative to time (i.e. "In two weeks 'something will happen'...") which makes the date of the interviews particularly relevant. Note the dates of these sources above, two of them are just two days old. Also note the dates of other sources you follow. I see a lot of re-posts that people share out of concern (no malintent) but are confusing the truth.

OK, here we go with 'highlights', then some real digging:

Highlights 1. Tokyo mayor claims Japan PM lied about Fukushima: Mayor of Tokyo, Naoki Inose, has indicated that the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe lied to the International Olympic Committee when he reassured them that contaminated water leaking from the Fukushima Nuclear Plant were “under control.” (Source: II.)

2. The most serious complication would be anything that leads to a nuclear chain reaction. (Source: I.)

3. TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) admitted for the first time on October 12, 2012 that it had failed to take stronger measures to prevent disasters for fear of inviting lawsuits or protests against its nuclear plants. There are no clear plans for decommissioning the plant, but there are estimates it will take at least thirty or forty years. (Source: IV)

4. Collateral damage will continue for decades, if not centuries, even if things stay exactly the way they are now. (Source: I.)

5. On 5 July 2012, the Japanese National Diet appointed The Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission (NAIIC) submitted its inquiry report to the Japanese Diet.[27] The Commission found the nuclear disaster was "manmade", that the direct causes of the accident were all foreseeable prior to March 11, 2011. The report also found that the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was incapable of withstanding the earthquake and tsunami. TEPCO, the regulatory bodies (NISA and NSC) and the government body promoting the nuclear power industry (METI), all failed to correctly develop the most basic safety requirements—such as assessing the probability of damage, preparing for containing collateral damage from such a disaster, and developing evacuation plans for the public in the case of a serious radiation release. (Source: IV.)

6. On July 22, 2013, more than two years after the incident, it was revealed that the plant is leaking radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean, something long suspected by local fishermen and independent investigators.[33] TEPCO had previously denied that this was happening and the current situation has prompted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe to order the government to step in. (Source: IV.)

7. 1976: Falsification of safety records by TEPCO

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex was central to a falsified-records scandal that led to the departure of a number of senior executives of TEPCO. It also led to disclosures of previously unreported problems at the plant,[62] although testimony by Dale Bridenbaugh, a lead GE designer, purports that General Electric was warned of major design flaws in 1976, resulting in the resignations of several designers who protested GE's negligence.

In 2002, TEPCO admitted it had falsified safety records at Fukushima Daiichi unit 1. As a result of the scandal and a fuel leak at Fukushima Daini, the company had to shut down all of its 17 nuclear reactors to take responsibility. A power board distributing electricity to a reactor's temperature control valves was not examined for 11 years. Inspections did not cover devices related to cooling systems, such as water pump motors and diesel generators. (Source: IV.)

8. [A]s far as Fukushima goes, the only thing that matters now is if world leaders and experts join forces to help fix this situation. Regardless of what agendas they are trying to protect or hide, how much it will cost, the effect on Japan or the world’s economy, or what political chains this will yank.

The nuclear industry needs to come clean. If this leads to every reactor in the world being shut down, so be it. If the world governments truly care about their people and this planet, this is what needs to be done.

Renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku stated in an interview a few weeks after the initial accident that “TEPCO is literally hanging on by their fingernails.” They still are, and always have been. The Japanese have proven time and time again they are not capable of handling this disaster. Now we are entrusting them to execute the most dangerous fuel removal in history.

We are extremely lucky that this apocalyptic scenario hasn't happened yet, considering the state of Reactor 4. But for many, it is already too late. The initial explosions and spent fuel pool fires may have already sealed the fate of millions of people. Time will tell. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not being honest, because there is just no way to know. (Source: I.)

9. As a comparison: Chernobyl was one reactor, in a rural area, a quarter of the size of one of the reactors at Fukushima. There was no 'spent fuel pool' to worry about. (Source: I.)

At Fukushima, we have six top-floor pools all loaded with fuel that eventually will have to be removed, the most important being Reactor 4, although Reactor 3 is in pretty bad shape too. Spent fuel pools were never intended for long-term storage, they were only to assist short-term movement of fuel. Using them as a long-term storage pool is a huge mistake that has become an 'acceptable' practice and repeated at every reactor site worldwide.

10. 1,300+ fuel rods each weighing ~2/3 ton must be successfully removed (there is an alternative discussed in the details). The fuel rods are in danger every day they remain in the pool. The more variables you add to this equation, and the more time that passes, the more risk you are exposed to. Each reactor and spent fuel pool has its own set of problems, and critical failure with any of them could ultimately have the end result of an above-ground, self-sustaining nuclear reaction. It will not be known if extraction of all the fuel will even be possible, as some of it may be severely damaged, until the attempt is made to remove it. (Source: I)

11. Worst Case Scenario: This is a terrible answer to have to give, but the worst case scenario could play out in death to billions of people. A true apocalypse. At least the northern half of Japan would be uninhabitable, and some researchers have argued that it already is. (Source: I.)

12. An obvious attempt to downplay this disaster and its consequences have been repeated over and over again from 'experts' in the nuclear industry that also have a vested interest in their industry remaining intact. And, there has been a lot of misleading information released by TEPCO, which an hour or two of reading by a diligent reporter would have uncovered, in particular the definition of 'cold shutdown.’

Over 300 mainstream news outlets worldwide ran the erroneous 'cold shutdown' story repeatedly, which couldn't be further from the truth…[it was] yet another lie that was spun by TEPCO to placate the public, and perpetuated endlessly by the media and nuclear lobby.

Unfortunately, TEPCO waited until a severe emergency arose to finally report how bad things really are with this latest groundwater issue...if we are even being told the truth. Historically, everything TEPCO says always turns out to be much worse than they initially admit. (Sources: I., II.).

13. A screening program found that more than a third (36%) of children in Fukushima Prefecture have abnormal growths in their thyroid glands but these are not attributed to the effects of radiation.[23] As of August 2013, there have been more than 40 children newly diagnosed with thyroid cancer and other cancers in Fukushima prefecture as a whole, but these cancers are not attributed to radiation from Fukushima, as similar rates of cancer occurred before the accident, and if Chernobyl is anything to go by the increase in thyroid cancer rates won't begin until approximately 4-5 years after the accident.[24][25] However, a 2013 article in the Stars and Stripes asserted that a Japanese government study[which?] released in February of that year had found that more than 25 times as many people in the area had developed thyroid cancer compared with data from before the disaster.

14. 'Unfortunately there is no one better qualified to deal with this than the Russians, despite their own shortcomings'

I think the best chance of success is... that experts around the world drop everything they are doing to work on this problem, and have Russia either lead the containment effort or consult with them closely. They have the most experience, they have decades of data. They took their accident seriously and made a Herculean effort to contain it.

Of course we also know the Chernobyl accident was wrought with deception and lies as well, and some of that continues to this day, especially in terms of the ongoing health effects of children in the region, and monstrous birth defects. Unfortunately there is no one better qualified to deal with this than the Russians, despite their own shortcomings. Gorbachev tried to make up for his part in the cover-up of Chernobyl by opening orphanages throughout the region to deal with the affected children. (Source IV.)

And now, on to the details...

What (Source IV.) The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was an energy accident at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, initiated primarily by the tsunami of the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011.The damage caused by the tsunami produced equipment failures, and without this equipment a Loss of Coolant Accident followed with nuclear meltdowns and releases of radioactive materials beginning on March 12. It is the largest nuclear disaster since the Chernobyl disaster of 1986 and the second disaster (along with Chernobyl) to measure Level 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale, releasing an estimated 10 to 30% of the radiation of the Chernobyl accident.

The plant comprised six separate boiling water reactors originally designed by General Electric (GE) and maintained by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). At the time of the earthquake, reactor 4 had been de-fueled and reactors 5 and 6 were in cold shutdown for planned maintenance. Immediately after the earthquake, the remaining reactors 1–3 shut down the sustained fission reactions automatically, inserting control rods in what is termed the SCRAM, following this, emergency generators came online to power electronics and coolant systems. The tsunami arrived some 50 minutes after the initial earthquake. The 13m tsunami overwhelmed the plant's seawall, which was only 10m high,[5] quickly flooding the low-lying rooms in which the emergency generators were housed (The tsunami was photographed). The flooded diesel generators failed, cutting power to the critical pumps that must continuously circulate coolant water through a Generation II reactor for several days to keep it from melting down after shut down. After the secondary emergency pumps (run by back-up batteries) ran out, one day after the tsunami,[11] the pumps stopped and the reactors began to overheat due to the normal high radioactive decay heat produced in the first few days after nuclear reactor shutdown (smaller amounts of this heat normally continue to be released for years, but are not enough to cause fuel melting).

The Evolution of News and a Disaster (Source I.) While the wiki article above states that the disaster has released as "estimated 10 to 30% of the radiation of the Chernobyl accident," that's not quite the whole picture.

1. The reactor that melted down at Chenobyl is 25% the size of one of the reactors in Japan (and there are six in Japan). That means the Japan situation has the potential to be 24x worse than Chernobyl relative to radiation leak. But that's hardly the end of it.

Check this out:

--- Source: I.

RT: How do the potential consequences of failure to ensure safe extraction compare to other disasters of the sort – like Chernobyl, or the 2011 Fukushima meltdown?

CC: There really is no comparison. This will be an incredibly risky operation, in the presence of an enormous amount of nuclear material in close proximity. And as we have seen in the past, one seemingly innocuous failure at the site often translates into a series of cascading failures.

'The site has been propped up with duct tape and a kick-stand for over two years'

Many of their 'fixes' are only temporary, as there are so many issues to address, and cost always seems to be an enormous factor in what gets implemented and what doesn't.

As a comparison: Chernobyl was one reactor, in a rural area, a quarter of the size of one of the reactors at Fukushima. There was no 'spent fuel pool' to worry about. Chernobyl was treated in-situ...meaning everything was pretty much left where it was while the effort to contain it was made (and very expeditiously I might add) not only above ground, but below ground.

At Fukushima, we have six top-floor pools all loaded with fuel that eventually will have to be removed, the most important being Reactor 4, although Reactor 3 is in pretty bad shape too. Spent fuel pools were never intended for long-term storage, they were only to assist short-term movement of fuel. Using them as a long-term storage pool is a huge mistake that has become an 'acceptable' practice and repeated at every reactor site worldwide.

We have three 100-ton melted fuel blobs underground, but where exactly they are located, no one knows. Whatever 'barriers' TEPCO has put in place so far have failed. Efforts to decontaminate radioactive water have failed. Robots have failed. Camera equipment and temperature gauges...failed. Decontamination of surrounding cities has failed.

'If and when the corium reaches the Tokyo aquifer, serious and expedient discussions will have to take place about evacuating 40 million people'

We have endless releases into the Pacific Ocean that will be ongoing for not only our lifetimes, but our children’s' lifetimes. We have 40 million people living in the Tokyo area nearby. We have continued releases from the underground corium that reminds us it is there occasionally with steam events and huge increases in radiation levels. Across the Pacific, we have at least two peer-reviewed scientific studies so far that have already provided evidence of increased mortality in North America, and thyroid problems in infants on the west coast states from our initial exposures.

We have increasing contamination of the food chain, through bioaccumulation and biomagnification. And a newly stated concern is the proximity of melted fuel in relation to the Tokyo aquifer that extends under the plant. If and when the corium reaches the Tokyo aquifer, serious and expedient discussions will have to take place about evacuating 40 million people from the greater metropolitan area. As impossible as this sounds, you cannot live in an area which does not have access to safe water.

The operation to begin removing fuel from such a severely damaged pool has never been attempted before. The rods are unwieldy and very heavy, each one weighing two-thirds of a ton. But it has to be done, unless there is some way to encase the entire building in concrete with the pool as it is. I don't know of anyone discussing that option, but it would seem much 'safer' than what they are about to attempt...but not without its own set of risks.

And all this collateral damage will continue for decades, if not centuries, even if things stay exactly the way they are now. But that is unlikely, as bad things happen like natural disasters and deterioration with time...earthquakes, subsidence, and corrosion, to name a few. Every day that goes by, the statistical risk increases for this apocalyptic scenario. No one can say or know how this will play out, except that millions of people will probably die even if things stay exactly as they are, and billions could die if things get any worse.

Here's the deal, in English. There are 1,300 fuel rods each weighing ~2/3 of a ton. Each has to be removed one at a time. Some context, then some of my statistics:

--- Source: I.

Although fuel rod removal happens on a daily basis at the 430+ nuclear sites around the world, it is a very delicate procedure even under the best of circumstances. What makes fuel removal at Fukushima so dangerous and complex is that it will be attempted on a fuel pool whose integrity has been severely compromised.

There are numerous other reasons that this will be a dangerous undertaking.

- The racks inside the pool that contain this fuel were damaged by the explosion in the early days of the accident.

- Zirconium cladding which encased the rods burned when water levels dropped, but to what extent the rods have been damaged is not known, and probably won't be until removal is attempted.

- Saltwater cooling has caused corrosion of the pool walls, and probably the fuel rods and racks.

- The building is sinking.

- The cranes that normally lift the fuel were destroyed.

- Computer-guided removal will not be possible; everything will have to be done manually.

- TEPCO cannot attempt this process without humans, which will manage this enormous task while being bombarded with radiation during the extraction and casking.

- The process of removing each rod will have to be repeated over 1,300 times without incident.

- Moving damaged nuclear fuel under such complex conditions could result in a criticality if the rods come into close proximity to one another, which would then set off a chain reaction that cannot be stopped.

What could potentially happen is the contents of the pool could burn and/or explode, and the entire structure sustain further damage or collapse. This chain reaction process could be self-sustaining and go on for a long time. This is the apocalyptic scenario in a nutshell. ---

OK, so all 1,300 fuel rods need to be removed. Let's say the removal of each rod is an independent and identically distributed (i.i.d) event. Here are the chances of successfully removing all 1,300 without a catastrophic event under various scenarios:

Scenario 1: The probability of removing a rod successfully is 99.9%. Result: The probability of removing all 1,300 successfully is .999^(1300) = 27.2% (i.e. 72.7% chance of failure at least once). The flaw in the logic:

I promised I wouldn't fear monger -- here's the (potential) flaw in that logic. The successful removal of a fuel rod probably raises the likelihood that then ext fuel rod will be successfully removed due to: 1. Learned mechanics (people will learn as they go, a successful extraction likely means better learned knowledge) 2. Less "mess" (fewer fuel rods to bump into each other; if any of them touch, as I understand it, that's a catastrophe, but as each one is removed, there's a lower chance that a "touch or collision" event occurs).

But, having said all of that, add back the risks inherent in the passing of time (see above), the mitigating factors of removing a single fuel rod might in fact be erased by the fact that it will take more than a year to remove all the rods which means more than a year of potential natural disasters and worsening of the surrounding area and other reactors. Keep in mind, the process to extract the rods has not begun yet. The count is still zero removed fuel rods.

Here's some more from source #1: --- Source: I.

Even the tiniest mistake during an operation to extract over 1,300 fuel rods at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan could lead to a series of cascading failures with an apocalyptic outcome, fallout researcher Christina Consolo told RT.

Fukushima operator TEPCO wants to extract 400 tons worth of spent fuel rods stored in a pool at the plant’s damaged Reactor No. 4. The removal would have to be done manually from the top store of the damaged building in the radiation-contaminated environment.

In the worst-case scenario, a mishandled rod may go critical, resulting in an above-ground meltdown releasing radioactive fallout with no way to stop it, said Consolo, who is the founder and host of Nuked Radio. But leaving the things as they are is not an option, because statistical risk of a similarly bad outcome increases every day, she said. ---

OK, that's it for the disaster, how about a solution?

What We Need to Do

--- Source: III.

The United States successfully cleaned and decommissioned nuclear facilities at Hanford, Washington, Rocky Flats, Colorado, and Portsmouth, Ohio. Other projects are currently under way in both the U.S. and U.K.

Yet, American firms who have offered to help with issues at Fukushima have been repeatedly turned down by Tepco and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

Recently, a METI official told me that Japan could not use American technology that was used to decommission Hanford because these were military reactors used in weapons programs. Fukushima is a civilian power reactor and, hence, the technology would not be appropriate.

Fuel rods inside the core of a nuclear reactor do not know if they will be reprocessed or put into a spent fuel pool.

This type of thinking harkens back to the fallacious argument that Japanese cannot eat American beef because their intestines are different.

The cleanup of any nuclear reactor will use the same technology, regardless of what the reactor has been used for.

The consequences of the continued delay in addressing the real challenges at Fukushima have international consequences. ---

OK... So what do we do on a personal level? It's actually pretty simple. E-mail and most importantly call your congress person.

You see, there's this funny thing about elections, people like to win them. Fugck the Republican / Democrat bullshit and the debt level deadline. That's posturing shit from people who collect more money and better health are than 98% of the population and have more vacation days than any other job in the country. But there's one good think about their posh lifestyles... They want to keep them.
