Nytimes.com announced today that thirteen operatives working at the nation’s underground nuclear waste dump near Carlsbad (New Mexico) have been affected by radiation. This happened due to a leak in the nuclear factory.
While on Wednesday official informed the media about a leak which was denied to be related to another similar incident:
The federal Energy Department said Monday that the results were from samples collected last week at air monitoring stations at and around the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad. Last week, federal officials confirmed the first-ever leak at the facility. It stores plutonium-contaminated waste from Los Alamos National Laboratory and other government nuclear sites. Officials say there is no public health threat. Waste shipments to the site were halted this month after a truck caught fire underground. Officials say they did not think the incidents were related.
Now, the federal Department of Energy and the contractor that runs the dump confirmed that they had notified the workers about the results and will continue to do the testing.
They haven””t made any further declarations saying they will detail everything on a press conference on Thursday afternoon .
The message ends with the following statement:
Elevated radiation levels have been detected around the plant, but officials have said the readings are too low to be a public health threat.
In January a Youtube celebrity, known as DutchSinse, made a video in which he was measuring the snow radiation level. He wasn””t surprised when he found out that it was more than regular.
He was very angry about the press which couldn””t relate it to the disaster from Fukushima and more than than, they were denying the truth:
Health officials in California are now telling residents not to worry after a video uploaded to the internet last month seemed to show high levels of radiation at a Pacific Coast beach.
The video, “Fukushima radiation hits San Francisco,” has been viewed nearly half-a-million times since being uploaded to YouTube on Christmas Eve, and its contents have caused concern among residents who fear that nuclear waste from the March 2011 disaster in Japan may be arriving on their side of the Pacific Ocean.
Throughout the course of the seven-minute-long clip, a man tests out his Geiger counter radiation detector while walking through Pacific State Beach outside of San Francisco. At times, the monitor on the machine seems to show radiation of 150 counts-per-minute, or the equivalent of around five times what is typically found in that type of environment.
It””s good news the winter is almost over and that we don””t have to worry about snow.

TEPCO has inspected the readings on the radioactivity levels at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant well to 5 million becquerels of strontium per liter. They are a record and the result is almost five times higher than the original reading of 900,000 becquerels per liter.
“Strontium-90 is a radioactive isotope of strontium produced by nuclear fission with a half-life of 28.8 years. The legal standard for strontium emissions is 30 becquerels per liter. Exposure to strontium-90 can cause bone cancer, cancer of nearby tissues, and leukemia,” wrote rt.com yesterday.
Tokyo Electric Power Co. initially affirmed that 900,000 becquerels of beta-ray sources per liter, including strontium was the result measured in the water sampled last year on July 5.
However, the Asahi Shimbum newspaper published on Friday the company”s report which informed that the previous radioactivity levels were wrong, so it”s probable that the readings were taken from other wells from the disaster-struck plant were also inexact. The company apologized for the wrong answer and explained it was the consequence of a malfunction of measuring equipment.
TEPCO didn”t specify though any other readings that were taken from both groundwater and sea water, which happened between June and November last year and summed 140 results.
rt.com added that “TEPCO also said on Thursday that 600 liters of contaminated water – which had 2,800 becquerels of beta-ray sources per liter in it, leaked from piping leading to a tank at the Fukushima nuclear plant.
A record high level of beta rays released from radioactive strontium-90 was detected at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant beneath the No. 2 reactor”s well facing the ocean, according to the facility’s operator who released news of the measurements mid-January.”
All these unexpected problems happened due to a tsunami produced by an earthquake in March 2011, which damaged the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The disaster caused the meltdown of 3 nuclear reactors of the site, leading to the worst nuclear catastrophe since Chernobyl. The water that cooled the reactors leaked into the soil, contaminating the groundwater and reaching even the water from the Pacific Ocean.
This is why our radiation detectors and other products are essential in order to protect yourself and your family from all harmful radiated objects you come in contact with.
