Fukushima radiation leaks greatly underestimated — RT

Radiation that escaped into the environment in the first week after the tsunami damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant, is double the initial estimate according to a new report.

The revised calculation of the Japanese Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency published on Tuesday puts the number at 770,000 terabecquerels. Earlier, the government said it was 370,000 terabecquerels, reports Kyodo news agency.

The new estimate is closer to what the independent Nuclear Safety Commission voiced, which said 630,000 terabecquerels escaped in the first month after the disaste

ENCOURAGE YOUR CONGRESSMEMBERS TO ATTEND RENEWABLE ENERGY/ENERGY EFFICIENCY EXPO/FORUM JUNE 16

NRC TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETING ON GE MARK I REACTORS

June 6, 2011,

Dear Friends,

Ready for a positive action? On Thursday, June 16, the Sustainable Energy Coalition (note: NIRS is a member) will hold its 14th annual Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Expo and Forum in the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill.

There will be literally dozens of speakers and exhibitors well worth seeing. Here is a flier describing the event more fully. If you're in the DC area that day, you should drop by. Even more importantly, your Congressmembers and their staffs should drop by! Now more than ever, Congress needs to learn about renewable energy and efficiency technologies.

Click here to send a letter to your Congressmembers urging them to attend the expo.

In a somewhat related development, Sens. Sanders, Boozman and Bingaman have re-introduced the 10 million solar rooftops bill. Find out more here.

GE Mark I petition
Our friends at Beyond Nuclear have submitted an emergency petition to the NRC to suspend the licenses of the General Electric Mark I reactors in the U.S.--those with the same design as Fukushima. The text of the petition is here.

This Wednesday, June 8, the NRC will be conducting a public meeting on this petition. If you're in the DC area, we encourage you to attend--it's at NRC's headquarters in Rockville, MD. More info on the meeting is here.

If you're not in DC, you can still listen and participate by calling 1-800-772-3842, Pin Code 2206#. The meeting will begin at 2 pm and is expected to last until 5 pm (eastern time); we hope many of you will be on the phone and let the NRC know we support this petition and demand the shutdown of the Mark I reactors.

Among the speakers will be Dale Bridenbaugh, a former GE engineer who, with two others, resigned from GE in 1976 in protest of the deficiencies with the Mark I design. You can find out more about these deficiencies and the history of the Mark I here.

Thanks for all you do,

3 nuclear reactors melted down after quake, Japan confirms - CNN.com

"Tokyo (CNN) -- Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant experienced full meltdowns at three reactors in the wake of an earthquake and tsunami in March, the country's Nuclear Emergency Response Headquarters said Monday.

The nuclear group's new evaluation, released Monday, goes further than previous statements in describing the extent of the damage caused by an earthquake and tsunami on March 11."


Ten Ways to Protect Your Family From Fukushim Fallout Protection from Radiation Fallout : The Colgan Institute, Your Source for Optimum Health & Performance

"Ten Points to Protect Your Family from Fukushima Fallout
Dr Michael Colgan 13 April 2011
As the damage became too obvious to hide any longer, Fukushima was finally up-rated to the top of the IAEA nuclear accident scale on April 11, a month after it began. It has been festering midst multiple deceits and vociferous denials by the nuclear industry, and by the Japanese, US, and Canadian governments. Today, officials are excusing themselves by claiming they did not want to reveal the figures in case they were unreliable, and might cause an unjustified public panic. "
