Strong 6.1 Earthquake Near Osaka Japan


https://www.jma.go.jp/en/quake/


No reports on any nuclear effects. Fukui Prefecture, marked in the map below, is not too far from the earthquake activity. Fukui Prefecture (see map below) has 13 commercial nuclear reactors according to an article in the Japan Times (here), although only 2 reactors are reported to be in operation 
Location of Fukui Prefecture

Here is a map from Wikipedia of the location of Japan's nuclear power plants


It looks as if the Takahama and Oi plants are the closest operating plants to the reported earthquake activity.

One news report states that "no irregularities were detected at the Mihama, Takahama and Ohi nuclear plants to the north of Osaka, Kansai Electric Power said." (CNBC here).

The Monju research reactors - breeder reactor - is offline but located also in the vicinity.

No word on its condition.

  2. The nuclear security state  controls studies on radionuclide toxicology and epidemiology. Their models only allow for exposure to external radiation.almost all the studies are censored or not done.  Most research about any deleterious effects of radionuclides, on the human body through exposure or bioccumulation probably came from army files injecting people with radionuclides in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s.   There is little access.

    The Who, is controlled by the iaea(international atomic energy association). The nuclear security state or states, have vice grip control over research adionuclide toxicology and epidemiology.   Have for 75 years.


    At the rate things are going, the massive widespread radionulide pollution,  will kill us long before global warming, or vaccines, or chemicals.  Does not matter if you are in the s hemisphere or not. Strontium 90, uranium, radium go into bones. They are definitely present enough in the world, in peoples bodies to be causing major damage to that part of their immune system. They use radionuclides to sterilize food so the saturation or radionuclide in our water is likely sterilizin our guts and, effecing our immunity from there too.

    Anyone born from 1952 to 1963, was massive irradiated in their mothers womb. Irradiated by dispertion of massive amounts of radionuclides (and it does not take much) from the thousands of bombs detonated around the world. There was also the purposeful and accidental, meltdowns of hundreds of dozens of reactors.  People born then, late baby boomers,  had their stem cells severely damaged in utero. Their life expectancy is 65. Ten year lower than the previous group. Many die of cancer before or close to 65. Probably similar for generations thereafter.  One's previous lineage of genetic well being, will not save you

    1. Well, you may have discovered why they became Democrats. With more limited mental abilities they would be easily swayed by those older and pre-nuclears like Nancy Pelosi and other aging Democrats . . . Still a life expectancy of 65 is pretty good on this planet. "According to historical mortality levels from the Encyclopaedia of Population (2003), average life expectancy for prehistoric humans was estimated at just 20 – 35 years; in Sweden in the 1750s it was 36 years; it hit 48 years by the 1900s in the USA; and in 2007 in Japan, average life expectancy was 83 years. It would appear that as time went on, conditions improved and so did the length of people’s lives." So really 65 is almost aberrant if not unhealthy. The result of radiation may be only a slipping back in time a few hundred years.

    1. Ohi nuclear power plant concerns:

      Osamu Tsukimori, Aaron Sheldrick Christian Schmollinger (2016, July 15)Former Japan nuclear regulator lashes out over earthquake standards. Reuters, http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-japan-nuclear-regulation-idUKKCN0ZV11C A former senior official of Japan's atomic watchdog has lashed out publicly at the agency's response to his concerns over the assessment of earthquake risks to nuclear plants, adding to a controversy over safety five years after the Fukushima disaster.
      Former deputy chairman of the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA), Kunihiko Shimazaki, now a professor emeritus of seismology at the University of Tokyo, in June broke his silence after leaving the regulator in 2014 to voice his concerns that earthquake risks are not being sufficiently addressed.
      Shimazaki then met with the NRA on June 16 and the regulator said it would make recalculations of its measurements but Shimazaki said the response falls short.
      "I cannot be convinced by their conclusions. I think they are ludicrous," he told reporters on Friday.
      Shimazaki's technical concerns relate to the Ohi nuclear plant operated by Kansai Electric Power, which is being assessed for a restart. But, he told Reuters after the June meeting with the NRA, "a sense of crisis" over safety prompted him to go public and urge more attention to earthquake risk in general.
      Shimazaki on Friday also denied a claim by the NRA Chairman Shunichi Tanaka on Wednesday that he had been satisfied by the NRA recalculations.

    2. The ohi plant is very concerning. I wonder how much spent fuel is at the ohi unit, and the 15 reactor complex in fukui. The kobe earthquake in japan was one of the worse in modern history. It was in this region. An earthquake of that destructive potential, can do major damage to reactors and fuel pool tanks.

      There have also been high levels of radioactive iodine reported in tokyo sewage? I believe that is it. Recently.

    4. Th3 iodine was by Fukushima. Means fissioning continues

  6. Though I have no first hand experience of either world war, I accept all the major reports as sufficiently reliable. In view of these two major world wars I can not be the least bit surprised that Japan for example would place nuclear power plants in harms way--as that seems consistent with human behavior. Of course it is in style now to be ahistorical and treat the present as all encompassing and to be surprised when human behavior shows itself. Casually reading the news over a period of one month one finds all sorts of stupid things people do. And all sorts of stupid things nations do. For example, why would Germany after decades of almost pampering the Jews decide to load the nation up with highly antisemitic Muslims? I have yet to find a rationale for bringing in so many immigrants who have no skills and simply live on welfare in a nation they detest. Nationcide? A repressed desire to finish what Hitler and the Nazis failed to accomplish? Very puzzling. Proof that free will is an illusion? Maybe so.

    1. This is hate talk. Many had their homelands destroy through western psychotic butchering. I have taled to Young Egyptions, you Iraquis, Young Syrians. Their countries are kept in ruins, purposefully. Most are really climate refugees. I wish you did not tolerate hate talk Majia.

  8. The Wall Street Journal coverage of the earthquake today was buried in a single paragraph in a side-bar of brief event descriptions.

    Clearly there is a strategic effort to minimize the perceived significance of the earthquake in this particular paper - people died and industry stopped as a result of the quake. Experts are saying more may be coming. Now would be a good time to re-evaluate nuclear security.

    1. But this is what we have come to expect. Right? Whether it is corruption at the FBI, the DOJ, the MSM, the Japanese gov, etc., the quasi criminal element has to be fed, or else there is real trouble for the elected power holders. It is probable that great wealth and power effect the structure of the brain.

    2. I wish this thing would not try to derail. The nuclear security state is alive and well. The russian , british japanese all cooperate. We all know that. They still want to have olympic games by fukushima. They are still exporting radioactive food. They are still trying to make people move back.

  9. Yes very true Majia. There is major nuclear waste coursing through the heart of muricas istate system now. Many tanks at hanford are just ready to dump or blowup from hydrogen buildups.
    Turkey Pointand, Fermi are in dire shape.

    Another major earthquake in the kansai region, in japan could set off a reactor or fuel pool.

    I do not even read st george replys anymore.

    Monbiot got fukushima wrong but, he got the nature of guys like abe and trump right. Even Dr caldicott agrees w that

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jul/19/despot-disguise-democracy-james-mcgill-buchanan-totalitarian-capitalism

    Trump and abe will take most everyone down not just the bottom 80%

    Maybe that is why trump is in washington. Same reason for abe in japan. They know major nuclear accidents are on the way, they want totalitarian puppets to keep them under wraps.

  10. "Trump and abe will take most everyone down not just the bottom 80%[.]" The majority of your comments seem propelled by rage; and have no basis in fact. And of course you never do present cold hard facts.

  11. Another dangerous reactor in america. It is operating with a very limited cool down capability in the face of an accident. The spray nozzle over the core, that is too cool it, is gone. Trump is relicensing. Very very dangerous

  12. Monsanto is bad but most of the world is now getting contaminated with stuff like thiss. 200 million americns drink water heavily contaminated w radium. Pharmaceuticals from mambai are known to be contaminate w lead. Iron in buildings have cobalt 60. Sewers all over the world full of americium, i131. Just think if there were less than a billionth of a gram of this in a vaccine or anything!

    The blue powder entranced. Then it killed

    Odesson Alves Ferreira still fights for compensation for victims of deadly nuclear accident in Brazil
    By Norbert Suchanek
    On September 13, 1987, Brazilian scrap metal dealer, Devair Ferreira, unwittingly opened Pandora’s box. Out spilled a bright blue crystalline powder that fell glowing to the floor. Fascinated by the magical iridescence, Ferreira invited family members to his home to see the mysterious substance for themselves. They were entranced. They touched it and passed it around to other friends and relatives.
    What none of them knew was that they had just set in motion Latin America’s worst nuclear accident. The blue powder was cesium chloride, encased inside a cesium-137 teletherapy unit that had been left behind in an abandoned cancer treatment hospital in the City of Goiânia, the capital of the State of Goiás. Two jobless youngsters had picked it up, pulled out the heavy lead cylinder containing 19 grams of cesium-137, and sold it to Ferreira.
    Ferreira, and his friends and family, soon became sick. His brother Ivo took some of the powder to his house where his six-year old daughter Leide played with the glowing radioactive crystals on the floor just before dinner. When she ate boiled eggs with her contaminated fingers, the deadly cesium-137 entered her body.
