— Japan poised to dump tanks of radioactive water into Pacific

This is in addition to the 100s of tons of contaminated water flowing into the Pacific each and every day for 6 1/2 years.

AP: “Japan poised to flood Pacific with 1 Million tons of nuclear water contaminated by Fukushima” — Newsweek: “Experts want Japan to push a Million tons of radioactive water Into ocean” — Release could kill fishing industry (VIDEO)

November 27, 2017

AP, Nov 26, 2017: Japan is poised to flood the Pacific with one million tons of nuclear water contaminated by the Fukushima power plant… The Japanese government is being urged by experts to gradually release radioactive water in to the Pacific Ocean… The water is stored on site in around 900 large and densely packed tanks and could spill should another major disaster strike. The government has been urged to release the water into the ocean… Local fishermen are extremely hesitant to this solution… Fumio Haga, a drag-net fisherman, said: ‘People would shun Fukushima fish again as soon as the water is released.’…

Newsweek, Nov 25, 2017: Experts Want Japan To Push A Million Tons Of Radioactive Water Into the Pacific Ocean… The government has been urged by experts to gradually release the water to the Pacific Ocean…

AP, Nov 27, 2017: Fukushima meltdown: Japan urged to dump radioactive waste in Pacific Ocean by nuclear experts; Nation at a loss with how to dispose of tanks of toxic matter left over from 2011 disaster… Experts advising the government have urged a gradual release to the nearby Pacific Ocean… Local fishermen are baulking. The water, no matter how clean, has a dirty image for consumers, they say… The fishermen fear any release would sound the death knell for their nascent and still fragile recovery… The amount of radioactive water at Fukushima is still growing, by 150 tonnes a day. The reactors are damaged beyond repair, but cooling water must be constantly pumped in to keep them from overheating. That water picks up radioactivity before leaking out of the damaged containment chambers and collecting in the basements… “Our recovery effort up until now would immediately collapse to zero if the water is released,” Iwaki abalone farmer Yuichi Manome said…

Metro.co.uk, Nov 27, 2017: Japan could pump 1,000,000 tons of radioactive water into the sea from Fukushima — More than six years after a tsunami devastated Japan’s west coast and overwhelmed the Fukushima nuclear power plant it has been revealed radioactive water could be pumped into the sea… Experts have advised the government to carry out a gradual release into the Pacific Ocean… Fishermen are still trying to recover from the disaster but the release of water could kill the industry…

— French government/AREVA is partner in Hanford waste consortium

A highlight from this article on Hanford.

From Mining Awareness, April 19, 2016

The current Hanford contractor, WRPS, LLC, for the leaky Hanford radioactive waste tanks is a consortium comprised of AECOM (due to recent purchase of URS), EnergySolutions (owned by Energy Capital Partners – mostly former Goldman Sachs investment bankers led by Doug Kimmelman), and French Government owned AREVA, which would be bankrupt if it weren’t French State owned. If AREVA knows so much then why did the US take French HEU (highly enriched uranium) or HEU waste off the hands of the French? Why didn’t the French take Swiss HEU waste or Swiss plutonium? Why, instead, was it dumped on America? [1]

Why is France co-managing nuclear waste facilities in the U.S.?

Is AREVA dumping nuclear waste in the U.S.?

AREVA dumps nuclear waste at sea in France. It used to dump drums of waste at sea. These are AREVA’s environmental credentials. It cares nothing for the environment.

The beautiful Columbia River. Salmon. The ocean.

Not important to AREVA or the French government or WRPS.

— Upcoming Dept. of Energy hearings on national nuclear waste dumps will be held in California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Arizona, Idaho, Minnesota

DOE wants to dump their nuclear waste in your state. They are looking for “stakeholders” who will “consent.”

These are the remaining meetings, starting with Tuesday, April 26, in Sacramento, California.

  • Sacramento, California on April 26, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Capitol Plaza – Sacramento
  • Denver, Colorado on May 24, 2016 at the Embassy Suites Denver – Stapleton.
  • Boston, Massachusetts on June 2, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Boston.
  • Tempe, AZ n June 23, 2016 at the Marriott Phoenix Tempe at the Buttes.
  • Boise, ID on July 14, 2016 at Boise Centre.
  • Minneapolis, MN on July 21, 2016 at the Hilton Minneapolis.

DOE is controlling the commenting, only allowing a 45-minute Q&A following the panel, and a 30 minute public comment period after a break. Even the California Public Utilities Commission allows a longer comment period during its local public hearings for matters of relatively minor import. This is a matter of great public and national importance. DOE plans to break up the audience and spend 1 hour, 45 minutes in small groups. This is a divide and conquer approach, where opposition can be fragmented. Demand that all industry leaders make comments in open meeting, and that all comments and questions from the audience be made in the open meeting to be heard by everyone. No small groups.

The meetings are listed here, together with links to register and to view the meetings online. They are requesting registration, but it is unknown whether this is a requirement.

MEETING MATERIALS: CONSENT-BASED SITING PUBLIC MEETING IN SACRAMENTO (APRIL 26, 2016)

Meeting Materials: Consent-Based Siting Public Meeting in Sacramento (April 26, 2016)

The Department will host a public meeting on consent-based siting on April 26th in Sacramento at the Holiday Inn Capitol Plaza. The purpose of the consent-based siting public meeting is to hear from the public and interested stakeholders on what matters to you as the Department of Energy moves forward in developing a consent-based process for siting the facilities needed to manage spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. The agenda includes a presentation from the Department of Energy’s Acting Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy, John Kotek. Mr. Kotek will discuss the nuclear energy activities that have brought us to this point, as well as describe the Department’s vision for an integrated waste management system and the need for a consent-based approach to siting. This presentation will be followed by a panel session with several experts providing diverse perspectives on the primary issues that need to be resolved in the design and implementation of a consent-based process. Participants will then have the opportunity to comment or ask questions to the Department and the panelists.

Following this session, there will be facilitated small group discussions on a variety of topics related to consent-based siting and integrated waste management. These small group discussions will provide the opportunity for participants to engage more closely on topics of interest to them. The Department intends for these small group discussions to be frank and open sessions on key topics that will inform the design of a consent-based process. The consent-based process will in turn serve as a framework for working with potential host communities in the future.

The agenda also includes a public comment period and two open houses with poster sessions before and after the formal meeting. The open house sessions provide participants with an opportunity to engage in less formal discussions with the Department and other meeting attendees.

The consent-based siting public meeting will also be webcast. We look forward to your participation!

The 1001 dump sites of Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington State

This article was cited in the previous video.

From Dr. William Mount
January 2014

The Hanford Nuclear Reservation is located in South Central Washington along the Columbia River in one of the most agriculturally productive areas in the world.

The Reservation began during WW2 to help build the first Atom Bomb. Since then this reservation has served as a primary storage area for Nuclear waste for this nation. Rather than doing what the Russians do-storing Nuclear Waste in 39,000 foot deep trenches in the Artic where it does no harm we just haul it to Hanford.

So what exactly does Hanford do with the Solid and liquid Nuclear Waste once they get it?

Here is what we have learned so far:

1) Up until 1974 Hanford dumped their Liquid Waste into open trenches where it seeped into the Columbia a River. At the BLUE BRIDGE these folks have been testing the water in the Columbia River just below Hanford for 70 years every day.

2) The Open Trenches were covered with metal covers in 1974 due to public protests but they dumping continues.

3) Solid Waste was stored in metal 55 gallon drums. I spoke with a Back Hoe driver about 5 years ago and he tried to pull one of those barrels up and it disintegrated in his shovel so – there they remain.

4) Solid Waste was also stored in Cement Barrels without rebar – and they also came apart when the back hoe hit the barrels – so they just threw dirt over the barrels and called it a day.

5) If you look at the aerial photos of Hanford you will see two open pits where Raw Nuclear Waste is dumped near the bend in the river.

6) Much of the waste blows down into the Kennewick Area – this is why it currently has the highest rates of Cancer, MS and other neurological disorders in the world.

7) The Spokane Indian reservation is just North and East of the Hanford Nuclear reservation. After speaking with a couple of Reservation Employees dealing with the reservation they told me that trucks come into the reservation form Hanford and go up creeks to old mine shafts and dump their waste daily. They tested over 1,000 wells and all of them showed contamination form raw Uranium. So apparently this “Raw Uranium” is being dumped directly into the ground water by those at Hanford – and has been for over 60 years.

Over and over again I heard stories about these trucks going up roads loaded and coming back empty — roads up creeks, roads to old mine shafts, roads where the only way to dump a load is by dumping it in the creek.

8) I was told by a truck driver a few weeks ago that had just retired that he would haul Nuclear Waste up a 4 1/2 mile road and dump it into a pond on top of a hill over looking the Columbia. This Waste Pond is the Rabanco Owned mine just West of the town of Wellpinit Washington. In fact – there are two open pit Nuclear Dump Sites there as can bee seen on Google Earth.

One of the mines is the Midnight Mine.

By the Way Rabanco has been renamed Allied Waste and then renamed New Republic Services.

The EPA also did a fly over and said: Don’t worry, be happy. It’s all fixed — as more trucks drove up to the mine to dump their radioactive waste.

These Indians are being slaughtered by the Hanford Folks as the NRC directors toast their success in ridding themselves of this toxic waste.

9) I realize that those who run Hanford assume that that these folks are only Indians and the only good Indian is a dead Indian – right?

They are Americans and I have been winning cases for their veterans for over 15 years now at no cost to them. In fact – I just won another one yesterday.

10) I met a gal at my mortgage company who’s husband would guard trains going form Hanford to Idaho and then dump their load into Tankers and then the tanker trucks would go down abandoned roads and dump their radioactive loads, Now the trees are so radioactive in these Unmarked Dump Sites that the trees are dying.

If you live in Northern Idaho – test your water for radioactive contamination.

Here is why killing Spokane Indians is legal.

(((By the way – they are Indians (Not Native Americans) and proud of it)))

1) The Nuclear Energy Commission is a Private Corporation owned by the IMF.

2) The Spokane Indian Reservation is a Private Corporation owned by the US Dept of Agriculture, which is also a private corporation owned by the IMF.

3) If you write an Environmental Impact Statement and have an Inter Agency (Corporation) agreement you may murder people legally – – white man’s laws.

GOD calls it murder.

Here is the good news:

APFN THE CURE FOR CANCER UPDATE 3

APFN THE HANFORD ANT, HAIRY LEUKEMIA, AND IMMUSIST.

Since the Spokane Indian Reservation Hospital refused to respond to me will somebody please shove this story into the faces of the Spokane Indian Reservation Board of Directors and demand the Cure for Cancer be made available on the reservation!

By the way – there is a Canadian Toxic Waste Disposal Site just north of the boarder along the Columbia River where Canadian trucks openly dump raw waste just East of Grand Forks BC. Here all sorts of toxic Waste is dumped into a river leading directly into the US in violation of a dozen treaties.

Hey – here is an ideas – rather than bombing Libya or Syria or Iran… – how about stopping the toxic waste form being dumped into the Columbia River Mr. Obama?

Hanford has been dumping nuclear waste along the Columbia River and on the Spokane Indian Reservation for years — revelations from Washington (VIDEO)

This information demands immediate investigation. It explains the epidemic of babies born without brains and the cancers in Washington. This is the tip of the iceberg to massive waste contamination across the United States and Canada, and the public and the environment have been put at permanent and severe danger by the nuclear cartel and all its entities. This video of information and maps is riveting. The photos in the “Safe Side of the Fence” show the casual disregard of public safety shown by the nuclear cartel, additionally documented by the casual dumping of barrels of high level nuclear waste into the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

Towns named in the video include Kenniwick, Welpinit, Bonners Ferry, Grand Forks (BC), Sandpoint, Richland.

Mount says that in contrast to news media reports of 3000 gallons leaking, the total is actually 100,000 gallons leaking, and the waste has rotted the bottoms of the storage tanks.

This affects the drinking water and water used for agriculture.
This affects all the agricultural products grown in the region.
This affects tourism. Who would visit Washington (or Idaho) with their family, drink the water, eat the food, or walk through their forests?
This impacts the incredible sacred Columbia River and its vital fishery.
It affects Oregon and particularly Portland and all the towns bordering the Columbia.
And it affects the Pacific Ocean, massively contaminating that sacred entity.

Combined with the U.S. Navy’s escalating use of the Olympic Peninsula and Washington State as a electronics weapons range (which the public is fighting), the military’s contamination of Puget Sound with radioactivity and munitions use, Fukushima radiation pummeling the West Coast, and Washington’s corrupt political establishment, Washington State doesn’t have a prayer for a viable future.
