Sep 14, 2014 Fukushima Anomaly Update

The radiation chart pasted below was posted by a Japanese blogger. It represents a large spike in radiation, which the blogger attributes to the Sep 14 2014 anomaly at Fukushima. I am unable to verify because I'm having trouble translating the page and decoding the location for the chart.

This is quite a spike.

Please see this pdf I created of images from the event including:
Early morning flashes (TEPCO cam)
Strange gray cloud over Daiichi at dawn (Futaba cam)
Pink mushroom cloud over Daiichi morning (Futaba cam)

My hypothesis is hot fuel rod fragments or melted corium are fissioning on the floor of the port. Perhaps the X1 class solar flare that came impacted Earth that day may have contributed.

I have no way of testing my hypothesis.  I've seen what looked like "fire" in this location before. Please see my pdf of "scary" Fukushima screenshots, focusing on the shots from the summer of 2013

My other piece of circumstantial evidence is TEPCO's announcement that it plans on cementing the port

I could be wrong and the radiation spike may have been caused solely by the solar flare.

However, it is worth noting that 5 days later the East Coast of the US is showing higher than ordinary rads under the jet stream:

Today's Jet Stream, seen in an animated format at Weather underground matches up pretty well to the elevated rad readings above (source here).:

Of course, the source for the elevated rads could be closer to home as well.

  1. TEPCO is rumored to have always been dumping all the high-level waste they have from the plant into the port. Like pieces of corium and fuel rod - the really nasty stuff. The first time they cemented the port floor - right after the accident - was to seal off the millions of pieces of fuel that were ejected into the port.

    The 'hide the fuel pieces' scheme worked out so well (read:cheap and relatively undetectable) that they've been planning on getting rid of the rest in the port the same way. It's cheaper for them to cement over the entire port with layers of high-level waste then it is to cart it all off somewhere else for disposal.

    Arne Gundersen can tell you the particulars about the utter lunacy of dumping irradiated fuel pieces into sea water.

    I'm pretty sure they flush whatever they find in the buildings into some kind of boron-buffered holding tanks in front of the turbine halls, and then occasionally and covertly pump that mess into the port. The pink flashes are tiny but prompt criticalities that occur when all those particles find themselves in open sea water rather than the dense boron solution.

    That is guaranteed to happen right after they conduct their fake radiation measurements around the port. They also have to wait for favorable currents to 'dilute' the gigabecquerels that are flushed out.

    I suppose we should dash off a sharply-worded letter to the authorities pointing out what appear to be prompt criticalities in TEPCO's port. If only we could find an authority that cared...
