*“Fukushima radioactive plume contaminated entire Northern Hemisphere during a relatively short period of time”

Massive amounts of anthropogenic radionuclides were released from the nuclear reactors located in Fukushima (northeastern Japan) between 12 and 16 March 2011 following the earthquake and tsunami. Ground level air radioactivity was monitored around the globe immediately after the Fukushima accident. This global effort provided a unique opportunity to trace the surface air mass movement at different sites in the Northern Hemisphere.

Cash for Chernobyl Found

May 1, 2012

A donors conference looking to raise 740 million euros to construct a long-term shell to cover the Chernobyl nuclear reactor has fallen short of its target.
Around 550 million euros have been raised at the conference in Kiev, but officials are confident that money will be found to make the site environmentally secure.
Japan, a top donor in the past, announced that following its problems at home after the earthquake/tsunami and subsequent difficulties at the Fukushima nuclear plant they would not be pledging money.

*New tomb for ghost of Chernobyl

On Thursday April 26, the 26th anniversary of an explosion and start of a meltdown at Chernobyl’s reactor unit 4, construction began on a 24,000-tonne steel structure to replace the patchwork shell that today covers the remains of the destroyed reactor.

The new seven-layer cladding, 20 metres thick at some places, includes a positive-pressure void designed to keep radioactive dust from escaping.

The cladding is to come from Turkey; the 600,000 bolts from Italy; and the workers from Lebanon, Syria, Ireland, India, the Philippines and farther afield.

By the time of its scheduled completion in November 2015, when it will be rolled like a railway car over the old reactor sarcophagus, the structure will be as heavy as three Eiffel Towers and roomy enough to contain a stadium or a Statue of Liberty. The total cost for the project is estimated at €1.2 billion (Dh5.84bn).

Feurat Alani: ‘Iraq: Fallujah’s Sacrificed Children’.

Mr. Alani traveled to Fallujah unembedded to report on the condition of the city more than six years after it was destroyed by the US military.

Living in a Nuclear Hell

April 10, 2012

“Russia’s nuclear industry has a past shrouded in Soviet secrecy.

In the last 60 years it is thought tens of thousands of people have been forced from their homes after radioactive waste was dumped into a river in Siberia.
The government recently announced the resettlement programme was over. However, four villages remain in the deadly radiation zone.

Al Jazeera’s Charles Stratford travelled to the Chilyabinsk region of South West Siberia. This is what he found.”

*Siberian village exposed to radiation

On the way to the plant, constructed in the 1940s, our crew was forced to avoid several checkpoints, and to conceal our cameras – we made do, in the end, with a small camera mounted on the windscreen.

A comment underneath this article on Al Jazeera from @Charles Digges:

Though drawing attention to a serious problem, your report misses several important facts, is long on travelog and short on research. The 1957 accident, known as the Kyshtym disaster was, until Fukushima, second only to Chernobyl. It spread fallout throughout Chelaybinsk oblast and women and children were recruited to wipe up the radioactive slop, having been told it was the result of a standard, rather than radioactive accident.
The biggest readily accessible point your story misses is that, according to court documents, Mayak NEVER stopped dumping in the Techa. It has been ongoing basically since 1951 and Mayak ignored the 06 ruling that it stop dumping in the Tehca, so as I write, more liquid radioactive waste is being pumped into the Techa cascade. Nadezha Kutepova, who represents radiation victims in Ozersk, the closed town where Mayak is located, as well as in Muslyumovo, would readily have furnished these documents.
Nearby Lake Karachai also served as a radwaste reservoir until it began to evaporate. So every spring, when the winds kick up, long-lived radionuclides from exposed shoreline become airborne throughout the region.
Third, Muslymovo’s residents have been proven to be by various members of the Duma who have released the classified documents, to be lab rats in an ongoing experiment on radiological impacts on living human beings.
Sergei Mitrokhin of the Yabloko party is particularly well versed in this and has all of the government medical date to prove it. This experimentation is consistent with the soviet practice of moving army families into Kazakh nuclear bomb testing ranges at Semipalatinsk and seeing how the fallout affected their health.
It’s a shame to have missed all of this as there are any number of government officials and NGOs willing to share this information. Ooops.
