Fukushima radiation spikes 7,000%


(NaturalNews) Cleanup crews trying to mitigate Japan’s never-ending radiation crisis at Fukushima ran into more problems recently after sensors monitoring a drainage gutter detected a huge spike in radiation levels from wastewater pouring into the Pacific Ocean.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company says radiation levels were up to 70 times, or 7,000 percent, higher than normal, prompting an immediate shutdown of the drainage instrument. The first readings came around 10 a.m. local time on February 22, setting off alarms not once but twice as radiation levels spiked to extremely high levels.

“The levels of beta ray-emitting substances, such as strontium-90, measured 5,050 to 7,230 becquerels per liter of water between 10:20 a.m. and 10:50 a.m.,” reported The Japan Times. “TEPCO requires radioactivity levels of groundwater at the plant discharged into the sea to remain below 5 becquerels.”

TEPCO shut off leaky gutter, but radiation continued to spike throughout day

The gutter was quickly decommissioned to prevent further radiation emissions, but the leaks reportedly continued throughout the day, with radiation levels hovering between 10 and 20 times higher than normal. TEPCO says it doesn’t know what caused the sudden radiation spikes.

“With emergency surveys of the plant and monitoring of other sensors, we have no reason to believe tanks storing radioactive waste water have leaked,” stated a plant official to the media. “We have shut the gutter [from pouring water to the bay]. We are currently monitoring the sensors at the gutter and seeing the trend.”

Multiple major leaks reported as Fukushima generates 400 tons of new radioactive waste daily

Just four days prior to the leak, the International Atomic Energy Agency congratulated TEPCO for its continued cleanup efforts at the Fukushima site. This is despite numerous other radiation leaks, some of them quite major, that have occurred in recent months at the shuttered facility.

Back in October 2013, for instance, a failed transfer of radioactive wastewater from one storage tank to another resulted in more than four tons of highly contaminated sludge being dumped into the ground. Not long before this, 300 tons of radioactive waste reportedly leaked from another nearby storage tank.

As we reported earlier in the month, a worker actually died after falling into a radioactive storage tank during a routine inspection. The 33-foot container that swallowed the man is one of many at the site that holds a portion of the 400 tons of highly radioactive water generated daily at Fukushima.

Fukushima workers build one new storage tank daily, but this can’t go on forever

The Japan News reports that large storage tanks capable of holding up to 2,900 tons of contaminated water are constantly being built at the site, up to one new tank daily, in fact. At some point, though, other mitigatory measures will have to be implemented, as there’s only so much space available to build more tanks.

According to The Ecologist, the Reactor 3 fuel storage pond also still contains upwards of 89 metric tons of plutonium-based, mixed-oxide fuel that, should the pond leak or dry up, could result in another major reactor meltdown. Reactor 3, as you may recall, experienced a full meltdown back in 2011 that resulted in the reactor core falling through the floor to the bottom of the containment vessel.

The chart at the following link, which was put together just days after the tsunami and earthquake hit Fukushima, provides a visual breakdown of radiation exposures from various sources. It can be used to quantify the threat associated with each respective leak:

Keiser Report: Can Bitcoin save Greece ? (Ireland ?)

I was thinking the same for Ireland!

Enda Kenny clams water protestors are a mob!

“You, Deputy, would not like to be hemmed in by a baying mob for two and a half hours,” Taoiseach Enda Kenny

Thomás O Cléirigh
I am not part of a mob! I am a respectability member of a community that has been devastated by the lying corporate gangsters now cloaking themselves as the Irish government! I am 59 years and have worked and paid my taxes all my life ( started working at the age of 15 years) I resent the attempts of various Politicians ,Bankers their spin doctors and hangers-on, of the ruling party’s to push the blame on me and everybody else for the financial meltdown that has befallen our country: Their greed and parasitic nature has destroyed our country and now the only way for me to voice my justifiable anger and contempt for these parasites is to walk the streets with the real patriots & decent people of Ireland ! This bunch of treacherous sellouts are driving ordinary people to the streets and they have a cheek then to call us a MOB! Despicable!

Ireland is Broke ! Austerity is NOT working!

By Thomás Aengus O Cléirigh

By Thomás Aengus O Cléirigh
In 2007 we had a national debt of 24.8 billion today that debt is now 250 billion and going up all the time! So 220 billion has gone where???? Certainly the people of Ireland did NOT get these billions we took on 230 billion of debt and no one can say where it has gone! Just imagine what the country would look like if w the Government had given everybody say 300 Euros a week since the 1st of January 2008: According to my calculations the government would have gotten 55% back straight away through the various taxes and the rest would have been spent in the local economy. The government would also save billions by cutting the civil service staffing levels as they would now not be needed! This will come soon or later! Giving billions to the corporations and the banks is not helping the economy and machines are taking over most jobs so are these machines going to pay taxes to the government???


Ireland’s real GDP figure is 390%
Greece is 317% : We are worse off and we have less than half the population and a third of the workforce Greece has so this means we have a lot more Austerity to face if we keep this shower of Gangsters in power or for that matter ANY political party we need independents without party affiliations for a real change! WE ARE BROKE and we cannot service this ODIOUS DEBT period!


morning Ireland, photo of the day!


Irish puppet government has 4 water protesters jailed and the banker gangsters who brought the country to its knees are enjoying lottery pensions and directorships of large corrupt corporations at the same  time the police force are engaged in forcing the installation of water meters for water we already pay euros every year for! Welcome to the penal colony  of Ireland!


12 police officers to install one water meter





This Is The Biggest Problem Facing The World Today: 9 Countries Have Debt-To-GDP Over 300%

If anyone has stopped to ask just why global central banks are in such a rush to create inflation (but only controlled inflation, not runaway hyperinflation… of course when they fail with the “controlled” part the money paradrop is only a matter of time) over the past 5 years, and have printed over $12 trillion in credit-money since Lehman, the bulk of which has ended up in the stock market, and which for the first time ever are about to monetize all global sovereign debt issuance in 2015, the answer is simple, and can be seen on the chart below.


It also shows the biggest problem facing the world today, namely that at least 9 countries have debt/GDP above 300%, and that a whopping 39% countries have debt-to-GDP of over 100%

We have written on this topic on countless occasions in the past, so we will be brief: either the Fed inflates this debt away, or one can kiss any hope of economic growth goodbye, even if that means even more central bank rate cuts, more QEs everywhere, and stock markets trading at +? while the middle class around the globe disappears and only the 0.001% is left standing.

Finally, those curious just how the world got to this unprecedented and sorry state, this full breakdown courtesy of McKinsey should answer all questions.


Seacrest : a picture of Ireland today!

By Thomás Aengus O Cléirigh

On this very windy and bitter cold day the residents of Seacrest /Wicklow Town supported by Éirígí activists were again on the front line defending their homes from the thugs of Irish water as they send out their outriders looking for a gap in the defenses of this small estate ! But the women of Seacrest have being preparing their stand and they are there for the long haul !  The ladies declared these are our homes and we will not give up the fight as they erected a temporary shield against the bitter wind:
