Fukushima released 13,000,000,000 times more neutrons than initially estimated — “Obvious implication for human health” — Gov’t: “Neutron radiation is the most severe and dangerous radiation” known to mankind; Can travel great distances (ENENews, Jan 13, 2015):

Scientists from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Univ. of California San Diego & Kyushu Univ., made available Oct 16, 2014 (emphasis added):

  • We estimated a lower limit of 5.2 × 1021 slow neutrons m–2 sec–1 [m–2 sec–1 = per sq. meter per second] were emitted from the nuclear fuel rods to the sea water injected in the reactors
  • Priyadarshi et al. (2011) have estimated a release amount of 4 × 1011 slow neutrons m–2. The large difference with our estimation [13,000,000,000 times higher] comes from the intrinsic limit of the box model study by Priyadarshi et al.
  • Our model directly estimates the amount of material released from the reactor core
  • The estimated… number of neutron represent a lower limit of the amount of radiation emitted from the nuclear reactors… These values can be used as a proxy to the total amount of radiation emitted since the melt down
  • [The authors] express their gratitude to… the Japanese Ministry of Environment…Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, and Technology (MEXT)… [and] the Cabinet Office

Priyadarshi et al.: Evidence of neutron leakage at the Fukushima nuclear plantDespite the obvious implication for human health… there are no quantitative estimates of the neutron flux leakage… [T]ons of seawater were used as a coolant… A consequence is that salts and minerals present in seawater become radioactive by reaction with thermal neutrons… We calculated the total number of neutrons that leaked from the reactor core [and] estimate that a total of 4 × 1011 neutrons per m2 were released before March 20.

Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Coordination: Neutron radiation is a kind of ionizing radiation which consists of free neutrons… Neutrons readily pass through most material, but interact enough to cause biological damage. Neutron radiation is considered to be the most severe and dangerous radiation available. Neutrons can travel great distances

  1. Thousands of times more poison then estimated has poured into the atmosphere and ocean? No, they lie like the losers they are, and the real number is much higher.

    Over two years ago, some dead sea turtles washed ashore in Costa Rica. Dogs, not knowing any better, raced down, ate them, died instantly. Even then, the poison in the waters was much worse than admitted.

    In the movie, “On the Beach” about nuclear fallout in the 1950s, at least government provided pills for the people to take to go home and die comfortably. Not the idiots we have in power, they just lie with the Japs.

    Our beaches are destroyed, birds are dying, fish are dead….the ocean is dead. A dead ocean provides no oxygen to the creatures underwater, so that tells me that it probably won’t provide oxygen to those of us who live out of the water. The Pacific provided over 50% of the oxygen for the people and plants on the earth. Dead, it generates none.

    We cannot live without oxygen. Not only have those bastards destroyed our food and water chain, they have destroyed the oxygen level that keeps man alive.

    Denial seems a shoddy way to deal with it.
