Fukushima Radiation Still at an All-Time High

Fukushima radiation dangers in Japan are still alarmingly high nearly four years after the catastrophe. In reality, the circumstances has only gotten worse as U.S Environmental Protection Agency RadNet has detected heightened emission levels at monitoring sites all across North America. bluefish.si

It has now been announced that radioactive water that’s collected at the plant has to become decontaminated and dumped into the ocean. We take a look at the radioactive groundwater and the safety hazard it presents, in this Lip News clip alongside Gabriel Mizrahi.

  1. WE ARE FINE

    June 30 Statement

    In response to the Japanese nuclear incident, EPA accelerated and increased sampling frequency and analysis to confirm that there were no harmful levels of radiation reaching the U.S. from Japan and to inform the public about any level of radiation detected. After a thorough data review showing declining radiation levels, on May 3, 2011, EPA returned to the routine RadNet sampling and analysis process for precipitation, drinking water and milk. As always, our 24/7 air monitoring stations continue to measure radiation levels, alerting scientists to even slight changes.

    It is important to note that all of the radiation levels detected by RadNet monitors and sampling have been very low, well below any level of public health concern. Across the RadNet system, we saw decreasing radiation levels during April and May. Since May, sample analyses have predominantly shown no detections of radionuclides associated with the Japanese nuclear incident. EPA continues to work with federal partners to monitor the situation in Japan and stands prepared to accelerate radiation sampling and analysis if the need arises. Data will continue to be available on EPA’s public website.

    EPA’s nationwide radiation monitoring system, RadNet, detects radiation in two ways: air monitoring and sample analysis.

    Air Monitoring: More than 100 air monitors measure radiation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This system allows our scientists to keep very close watch over radiation levels at all times. This system lets us identify normal background radiation levels in an area. The air monitoring system alerts us if radiation levels increase outside of this normal range, allowing us to take action if necessary. Get the data | Learn more about 24/7 monitoring

    Sample Analysis: During normal operations, EPA analyzes precipitation samples every month, and drinking water and milk samples every three months. This analysis allows us to detect minuscule amounts of radioactive material and gives our scientists information about the specific radioactive materials present.

      • WTH.. We are certainly NOT fine “DAN”!! The exposed cores are still leaking vast amount of radiation and there’s STILL no plan in place to get them contained. And in the meantime the 1000+ buss sized water crates which have been storing the contaminated cooling water are LEAKING!!!!!! Do you happen to be a Tepco employee per chance?? THIS IS BEING COVERED UP!!!! Why do you think the world richest are right now building massive fortresses south of the equator?? One more big quake and it’s ALL OVER!!!! WAKE UP!!!!!!! http://www.facebook.com/thegiantiswaking

  2. That statement, doesnt mention that the “acceptable levels” have been “raised”, the old levels would have had alarms ringing at levels which could have cauyse 1 in 10,000 people to develope cancers from the radiation, the “new levels” are (http://www.globalresearch.ca/obama-approves-raising-permissible-levels-of-nuclear-radiation-in-drinking-water-civilian-cancer-deaths-expected-to-skyrocket/5331224)to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period;
    If the article, or comments dont take a stand on this as a new form of social insanity, it should be looked at as suspect.
