one Curie -about 37,000.000,000 disintegrations per second

thanks to Maureen Roy for the study

The actual number of leaking fuel rods in the reactor can not be determined with certainty, said Prof. Tsivoglou, a nuclear expert, who made reports and certificates in the nuclear field / for reactors.The emissions to air and water will also depend on the leakage rate. The radioactive output from the chimney and into the water is very different.
The normal continuous reactor operation will generate a chimney emissions of 0,01 to 0,02 Curie per second = 370,000,000 Becquerel to 740 000 000 Becquerel per second – PER UNIT / REACTOR.
_ What is the benchmark, how much is a nuclear power plant allowed to emit?
According to radiation protection regulation nuclear facilities may not irradiate the general population with more than a maximum of 0,6 millisievert per year (0,3 millisievert through the air plus 0,3 millisievert through sewage). This is often misleadingly called a “30-millirem-concept”, using the unit millirem (which was used in the past). In order to estimate the dose of a nuclear power plant that causes (measurable) effects, operators of the facility and the licensing authorities calculate the effects of emissions on fictional local residents, the (a) so-called “reference man”. Hereby a number of more or less well-founded assumptions and realistic models are used – from dilution and spread of the exhaust gases to the living, eating and drinking habits of “reference man”. Which is, by the way, always a young, healthy, adult male. https://tekknorg.wordpress.com/2013/06/08/pregnant-avoid-the-nuclear-power-plants/
The upper standard of gross emissions can be achieved: 0,05 Curie per second = 1 850 000 000 Becquerel per second – PER UNIT / REACTOR.
This makes 59,200,000,000,000,000 Becquerel per Year – PER UNIT / REACTOR.
Worldwide this makes: 23,680,000,000,000,000,000 per Year for ALL operating Reactors, EACH YEAR.
This is in ONE YEAR already 13 times the official Emission for Chernobyl (50 million curie) the IAEA has calculated. In ONE year.
Independent sources say the Chernobyl emission was more than 5 billion curie, or 185,000,000,000,000,000,000 becquerel.
Let’s compare the radioactive emissions from the reactors with the Bomb Tests, with a quote from the CTBTO, which operates the global radiation detection network:
“A number of underground tests were also carried out from September 1957, with all testing going underground after 1962. “Storax Sedan” was part of the Operation Plowshare programme to investigate the use of nuclear weapons for peaceful purposes such as mining. It caused more radioactive fallout contamination than any other nuclear explosion conducted in the United States. Detonated on 6 July 1962, Sedan released roughly 880,000 curies of Iodine 131 into the atmosphere.”
That is only the Iodine: 32,560,000,000,000,000 becquerel.
“The total amount of plutonium-239 released to the atmosphere as a result of the 23 atmospheric nuclear tests is estimated at 3,300 curies, approximately 48 kilograms in weight. One millionth of a gram of plutonium-239 can cause cancer if inhaled. The amount of plutonium-239 still contained within the Lop Nor site in 1991 as a result of underground nuclear testing was estimated by IPPNW as 1,800 curies (25 kilograms). A further two million curies of caesium-137 and 1.3 million curies of strontium-90 were released into the atmosphere.” https://www.ctbto.org/nuclear-testing/the-effects-of-nuclear-testing/the-united-states-nuclear-testing-programme/
and: “According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the tests in the Marshall Islands released 6.3 billion curies (See Chart 2) of I-131 alone, which is 42 times the amount released by atmospheric nuclear testing in Nevada.”
But it can be again compared to a SINGLE REACTOR (remember the 16,000,000,000 becquerel inventory of each reactor) – this time with a Spent Fuel Pool: http://www.nirs.org/factsheets/routineradioactivereleases.htm
Let’s compare the bomb tests to reactor emissions (thanks Bob Farquar for all the data!)

Really there is no difference between a reactor and a bomb. Both emit damaging radionuclides into the world. The bomb only when it explodes, but the reactor explodes in slow motion each second! So slow it is called controlled chain reaction, but basically the same thing happens in it. While a normal reactor houses the radioactivity of 1,000 Hiroshima bombs, the “Spent” Fuel Pools even more!.
Not considered even is the emission of Krypton 85 (full decay time is 100 years) from Reactors. It is hold back in the Contaiment furing operation. But the fuel is then send as Spent Fuel to Reprocessing facilities, which release the Krypton from all the reactors fuel. From worldwide reactors where they get it.  So, in the end it IS emitted. http://science.sciencemag.org/content/193/4249/195.extract
The estimated emissions from a facility reprocessing and irradiating 1,400 tons reactor fuel per year is one million Curie TRITIUM (full decay time is 120 years) or 37,000,000,000,000,000 becquerel:

NFCNWCfrom ratical.org

some quotes, showing how the military industrial complex works:

“In 1974 the operators of the huge Savannah River weapons facility at Aiken, South Carolina, accidentally released some 435,000 curies of radioactive tritium in a single day—the largest single tritium emission ever reported in the U.S. Studies of the local water system show serious contamination, and there are preliminary indications of an escalated cancer rate among people living near the plant”


Cobalt 60 fabrication plants, for example, are allowed to expose the public to twenty times more radiation than a commercial reactor. Many of the small radiation by-product plants are also located in thickly populated areas. American Atomics sat just a few hundred yards from a trailer park, a church, a day-care center, a potato chip warehouse, several homes, and the central kitchen for the Tucson public school system. The plant regularly leaked large quantities of tritium gas into the atmosphere—285,000 curies of it in 1978 alone, according to company records. In September of that year a maintenance worker opened the wrong valve and sent into the Tucson air a single “puff” of twenty-one thousand curies, a sizable dose. The public was not informed.”

“In 1958 the military threw an entire atomic reactor vessel, containing thirty thousand curies of radiation, into the Atlantic. It later tried to retrieve the vessel, but could not find it”

FROM: http://www.nucleardemolition.com/Killing_Our_Own.pdf

A normal reactor houses 16 billion curie of radiation, or 1,000 hiroshima bombs.


Among all these radionuclices are some very damaging ones:
STRONTIUM: Worldwide deposition of strontium-90 through 1990: Keep in Mind: Per ton Uranium there is 836,0 gram (29,5oz) of Strontium 89 & 90. ONE gram Strontium 90 (0.035oz) has a specific activity of 5,300,000,000,000 Becquerel: KEEP THAT IN MIND, if you read somewhere: Only 0,5 g Strontium 90… The Becquerel counts! Full decay time is 285 years = 10 human generations… It mimics Calcium and can be measured in Baby teeth and bones, the most important home of stem cells http://www.osti.gov/scitech/biblio/243453
CESIUM : “The relative risks for stillbirth and preliminary malformations are 0,5 – 2 % per 1000 becquerel of Cesium 137 in m² soil.” Page 33: http://www.tschernobylkongress.de/fileadmin/user_upload/pdfs/ScherbVoigt_fehlbildungen_fehlende_geburten.pdf by Dr. , Scherb, Institute of Biomathematics and Biometry Germany

Not the bombs on the launch pad irradiate us, the reactors do!

Protest against Nuclear weapons? Do you know what it is?
A distraction. To distract us away from the damage by Nuclear Energy. Not true? Look at only ONE reactor. A normal commercial reactor houses the radioactivity of 1,000 nuclear bombs, or 16 billion curie. And it emits each second parts of it.
Yes, there are two types of nuclear weapons. The one sitting on its launch pad or in the silo / sub. The other type of nuclear weapon is decelerated (controlled chain reaction) and produces electricity and cancer. Now look at the one dimensional protest movement again, It should read: DISARM the NUCLEAR REACTORS!

In this article I show data which is missing during the hearings, and probably will be. This data is important to calculate the radiation dose the sailors and others got, and during the VENTING process taking place in all three TEPCO reactors. I do not believe in the meltdown. I believe the units were vented over weeks (melting, venting, melting, venting), to overcome the pressure and getting rid of it (=inventory=fuel), to avoid destruction by explosion. It is the principle of a pressure cooker everyone knows.
Then I show what counts as an accident infront of court (info from Bertell) and I show which methology is used, and who says what. Let’s start.


The court hearings have begun: Will there be compensation fot the US Sailors from the USS Reagan?

9th Circ. Told To Send Sailors’ $1B Fukushima Suit To Japan:




Min. 53:49 is about distance and radiation.

They call it a meltdown. As soon as the officially call it a meltdown ALL Textbook data will be used, not reality. Then there is no problem, because radiation wasnt so bad, and there will be little or ZERO compensation.

no SPEEDI data

no CTBTO data

no NRC FOIA data


Plus: They call it a meltdown. And that is not right. Although the whole anti nukie and pro nukie field believe it. 99,9% believe it was a simple meltdown.

And the strict categories: https://ratical.org/radiation/Chernobyl/CaUFtH.html

and: https://www.ratical.org/radiation/NAvictims.html

“Causing the genetic predisposition to breast cancer or heart disease does not count since it is not a “serious genetic disease” in the Mendelian sense.”

And powerful enemies, who team up behind the stage:



Although U.S. nuclear plant operators were required to install
“hardened” vent systems in the 1980s after the Three Mile Island
incident, Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission rejected the need to
require such systems in 1992, saying that should be left to the plant
operators to decide.

A nuclear power plant’s vent represents one of the last resorts for
operators struggling to keep a reactor from pressure that could to
blow the building that houses it apart and spread radiation, which is
what happened at Chernobyl 25 years ago. A hardened vent in a U.S.
plant is designed to behave like the barrel on a rifle, strong enough
to withstand an explosive force from within…” https://wikileaks.org/gifiles/docs/13/1364833_re-eastasia-fwd-os-japan-energy-special-report-japan.html

“The SRV is designed to prevent excessive pressure buildup inside nuclear reactors and thus plays an essential role in nuclear power plants.” http://www.okano-valve.co.jp/english/products/valve/safety-valve.html



This NRC FOIA data speaks a different story:


More NRC data about the DOSE, the USS REAGAN, the VENTING:

With a containment (like in Boiling Water Reactors of  General Elctric / TEPCO) a reactor cooks the core and delivers it controlled to the outside. This also stopps the chain reaction. The steam relief valcvs are use. The core is vented piece by pieces. As a whole. But without a violent explosion. If you do not vent it, then the explosion will be violent.

from: http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML1205/ML12052A105.pdf

Then we can read about the 400 mSv per hour measuerd near the plant (“There was a media report of a 40-rem dose measured somewhere near the plant.”) quote from NRC on PAGE 15: http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML1205/ML12052A106.pdf

Gregory Jaczko was informed about the venting of TEPCO reactors in the NRC document ML12052A099.pdf. What did he know, what did he do? Venting reactor containment means letting it fly – to the people. THIS is NOT a meltdown. The reactors are empty. Scanner pics of TEPCO show this. How can this be a meltdown? http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML1205/ML12052A09

More CTBTO & Speedi data:


High pressure may then lead to a sudden rupture of the lower welding. In case of a small cavity, the sudden release of steam and ejected corium will generate high upward forces on the RPV. In case of pressures > 3 MPa (30 bar), the anchoring of the RPV on the pedestal as well as the anchoring by the connected piping of the primary loop may fail.” – Hydrogen burns, including deflagration and detonation…” https://www.oecd-nea.org/nsd/docs/1997/csni-r1997-11.pdf

This is how the Three Mile Island catastrophe was handled:


Will any of these show up infront of court? Or is it an inside job, without the people knowing who are on it with honesty?


1984, New Scientist: Internal studies of the DOE Department of Energy: Workers of twelve different nuclear plants. Nine of the studies found up to 50% higher leukemia rates, above average: lung cancer, lymphoma, brain cancer, malignant tumors of the digestive organs. Common diseases of the respiratory system were more frequent. 2,529 workers were examined in plants of the DOE. All workers had received more than 50 mSv per year. The cancer rate was three times higher: http://books.google.de/books?id=YIAzHckpZswC&pg=PA3&lpg=PA3#v=onepage&q&f=false
