Fears of radioactive leak after blast rips through complex

March 13, 2011 by legitgov

Fears of radioactive leak after blast rips through complex 13 Mar 2011 Japan was battling to head off a further catastrophe last night, after a nuclear power station damaged by the earthquake was rocked by a huge explosion. The blast at the Fukushima plant destroyed the building housing the reactor and injured four workers who had been struggling to keep control of the unit in the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami. Nuclear consultant John Large claimed the explosion must have dispersed "a lot of radioactivity". He said: "It defies the Japanese government line that the [reactor] vessel is still intact. The reality is that this plant has been devastated by an explosion. I'd expect to see a significant nuclear release."

Japan on brink of nuclear meltdown

March 13, 2011 by legitgov

Japan on brink of nuclear meltdown 14 Mar 2011 Desperate attempts are being made to cool a Japanese nuclear power plant crippled by the country's huge earthquake and tsunami - but indications are that one of its uranium reactors has at least partially melted. And last night, a top Government official warned that a meltdown in the third of the plant's three reactors was "highly possible". Radioactive caesium, one of the elements released when overheating damages the core of a nuclear reactor, was detected around the Fukushima Daiichi power station, 270km northeast of Tokyo. This indicated that a meltdown, caused by a nuclear reaction running out of control, had affected the fuel rods in the power station's No 1 reactor, although possibly only to a limited extent.

Flu Jab 'For Every Adult On the Planet'

March 13, 2011 by legitgov

Over our dead bodies: Flu Jab 'For Every Adult On the Planet' 11 Mar 2011 Only worldwide mass vaccinations can prevent a possible deadly flu pandemic, experts warned yesterday. People under 50 are at risk of the H2N2 strain -- similar to the [lab-generated] H1N1 swine flu virus that struck fear across the world in 2009. The virus is still present today among birds and swine. Dr Gary Nabel, of the US Vaccine Research Centre in Maryland, said: "One approach would be to manufacture the vaccine produced in 1957 and immunise enough of the world’s population to provide 'herd immunity' to the rest." The report argues this would be cheaper than stockpiling the vaccine or waiting for [pharma-terrorists to create] a pandemic to strike before manufacturing it. [See: Vaccines may have increased swine flu risk 04 Mar 2011.]

March 13, 2011 by legitgov

Fears grow of second explosion at earthquake-hit nuclear plant as exclusion zone around facility is widened to 13 miles --Exclusion zone widened to over 13 miles as radiation levels rise --Reactor 3 has lost its cooling system --170,000 people evacuated from area near plant --Up to 160 people so far exposed to radiation 13 Mar 2011 Japan's nuclear crisis was growing today amid the threat of multiple meltdowns, as more than 170,000 people were evacuated from the quake- and tsunami-savaged northeastern coast. A partial meltdown was already likely under way at one nuclear reactor, a top official said, and operators were frantically trying to keep temperatures down at the power plant's other units as fears of a second explosion at the facility grew. As the exclusion zone around the facility was widened to more than 13 miles today, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said that a hydrogen explosion could occur at Unit 3 of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex, the reactor that could be melting down. That would follow a blast the day before in the power plant's Unit 1, as operators attempted to prevent a meltdown by injecting sea water into it.

Tsunami causes millions in damage in California

March 13, 2011 by legitgov

Tsunami causes millions in damage in California 12 Mar 2011 A deadly tsunami roared 5,000 miles across the ocean and slammed into Northern California on Friday, destroying harbors from Santa Cruz to the Oregon border and washing one man out to his death in the sea. The West Coast damage was less than it could have been because the tsunami hit during low tide, and nothing on the scale of the 8.9-magnitude earthquake that spawned it in Japan... But that was small consolation to the victim's survivors or sailors and business owners now facing millions of dollars in damage to docks and boats.

Quake moved Japan coast 8 feet, shifted Earth's axis

March 13, 2011 by legitgov

Quake moved Japan coast 8 feet, shifted Earth's axis 12 Mar 2011 The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis. "At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).

Emergency managers bill sweeps toward final approval

March 13, 2011 by legitgov

Emergency managers bill sweeps toward final approval --Union rights advocates call for mass protest 10 Mar 2011 The Michigan Senate yesterday approved legislation that threatens to take over and even dissolve local governments that refuse to balance their budgets by breaking labor contracts. According to the law, which has already been approved in the House, the governor will be able to declare "financial emergency" in towns or school districts and appoint someone to fire local elected officials, break contracts, seize and sell assets, and eliminate services. Under the law, whole cities or school districts could be eliminated without any public participation or oversight, and amendments designed to provide minimal safeguards and public involvement were voted down. An amendment to require Emergency Managers to hold monthly public meetings to let people know how they are governing was rejected by Senate Republicans, along with proposals to cap Emergency Manager compensation and require that those appointed to run school districts have some background in education.

Agency forecasts 10% chance of radioactive fallout hitting Taiwan

March 12, 2011 by legitgov

Agency forecasts 10% chance of radioactive fallout hitting Taiwan 13 Mar 2011 he chances of radioactive fallout from two Japanese nuclear power plants crippled by Friday's massive earthquake are not high, the Cabinet-level Atomic Energy Council said yesterday in a statement. If two plants in Japan's Fukushima prefecture release large amounts of radiation, the probability of it reaching Taiwan is only 10 percent, the council predicted. The area most likely to fall victim to radiation from Japan would be Taiwan's northeastern coast and Monday would be when it would most likely arrive, the council said.

Protect Lizards' Love Lives

March 12, 2011 by legitgov

Quick action! Protect Lizards' Love Lives (National Wildlife Federation) 12 Mar 2011 Lizards retreat to the shade when temperatures are too warm, which can leave them hungry with too little energy to reproduce. Many lizards have died in areas where global warming has caused higher spring temperatures, and a continued rise in global temperatures could increase their need to stay in the shade, leaving them with less energy to do much else. Already, lizard populations are disappearing across the globe, but right now, you can help protect lizards by urging the Environmental Protection Agency to do their part to reduce the global warming pollution that comes from trucks -- one of the largest emitters of global warming pollution.
