Although you may see very little in the MSM, people are continuing to voice their opposition to nuclear power in Japan each week. Here is a link to an essay about this movement, and what it is like in Tokyo. The article is from 28 July of this year, and if you haven’t read it, I encourage you to do so.

Hmm, for some reason (?) for days now, I haven’t been able to view this video by Arnie Gundersen from Fairewinds. There is always a message: “There was a problem loading this video.” Anyone else having trouble? or is it just my PC? Strange, because I’ve learned that it is simply a plea for donations.

Tritium leakage from reactor 5 and 6

On 9/21/2012, Tepco released the nuclear analysis result of radioactive materials in the sea water.

The samples were taken on 4/16 and 5/14, so their release is 5 ~ 4 months behind.

The result shows 3.8 ~ 6.0 Bq/L of tritium leakage from around reactor 5 and 6 (North of Unit 5-6 Discharge Channel).

Tepco evaluates it is from the Fukushima accident.  From April to May, the tritium amount increased.
