Meanwhile, Noda and Hosono plan to reopen the OHI nuclear power plant in spite of the fact that it still has some “minor” issues like no filter for steam releases, etc.
Oh, but don’t worry, they are offering stronger safety measures.

Bluefin tuna catch brings in higher than last year prices (WTF?), meanwhile, only 5 months after the accident bluefin tuna were found to be 10X higher in cesium 134 and 137 in CALIFORNIA from the Fukushima accident… oh, and did I mention the walls of reactor 4 are bulging and if reactor 4 collapses, it would be absolutely catastrophic to the northern hemisphere.

Paul Gunter, Beyond Nuclear joins Thom Hartmann. All is not well at the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant in California – where federal investigators have found major designs flaws in the plant. Just what kind of risk do these designs flaws pose – and could we be looking at a future nuclear disaster on the West Coast? And are our fish getting more and more radioactive? Should you bring a geiger counter to the restaurant or supermarket yet?

Many countries are relying on nuclear power as a vital part of their energy mix. At least 60 new nuclear power stations are being built or planned world-wide. But the disaster in Japan has raised awareness of the risks posed by the technology.The situation shows that even today, after decades of operating atomic power plants, unforeseen events can cause problems that have not been anticipated in safety plans. Scientists at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research in Jülich have long been exploring the issues surrounding nuclear safety. One thing they have done is simulate the synthesis of hydrogen within reactors. It is a risk that became a reality at the Fukushima power plant.
