If Illinois were a country, it would have the world’s 12th-largest number of nuclear power reactors, behind China and ahead of Sweden. 

No other U.S. state generates more energy through fission. Exelon Corp. (EXC), which operates all 11 of the state’s reactors, is no stranger to President Barack Obama. The Chicago- based company has served as a source of campaign contributions and also created environmental and political challenges to navigate.

9/29/2011 Fukushima prefecture struck by major tremor

Source: NHK World
Date: Thursday, September 29, 2011 20:07 +0900 (JST)

An earthquake with an estimated magnitude of 5.4 jolted Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan, on Thursday.

The Meteorological Agency says the tremor occurred shortly after 7 PM, centered off Fukushima Prefecture.
The agency says there was no tsunami.

The quake registered a maximum intensity of 5-plus on the Japanese scale of zero to 7.

Tokyo Electric Power Company says the quake has not interfered with its attempts to stabilize three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, crippled since the nuclear crisis began in March.

The utility adds that no changes have been observed in data on radiation levels measured at monitoring posts near the crippled plant.

Editor's Note: This quake was downgraded to a Magnitude 5.1 by the USGS.

9/28/2011 Swiss plan to phase out use of nuclear power gains full backing in parliament

Source: Associated Press
Date: September 28, 9:54 AM

BERN, Switzerland — A government plan to phase out nuclear power in Switzerland has moved a lot closer to becoming reality. Switzerland’s upper house, the Council of States, approved a measure Wednesday as expected to gradually shut down the country’s five nuclear reactors by 2034.

The endorsement, one month before federal elections, follows similar action by the lower house in June and reflects growing global skepticism over the use of atomic energy.

The Swiss use it to provide almost 40 percent of their country’s energy, which relies largely on hydropower.

The Cabinet favors decommissioning the country’s reactors after an average life span of 50 years and must now provide lawmakers with a detailed proposal on how to do that.

9/26/2011 Another shutdown at Entergy nuclear power plant

Source: Associated Press via Bloomberg Business Week
Date: September 26, 2011, 9:29AM ET

Entergy Corp.'s Palisades Nuclear Plant in southwestern Michigan has shut down five days after restarting from an earlier shutdown.

Entergy said the plant shut down automatically from full power about 3:10 p.m. Sunday because of an electrical breaker fault.

New Orleans-based Entergy said no one was hurt in the shutdown. Entergy said plant personnel are evaluating the problem and working toward "a repair and restoration schedule."

Palisades is in Van Buren County's Covert Township, about 55 miles southwest of Grand Rapids. It was shut down Sept. 16 because of a loss of water in a cooling system, then brought back on the grid last Tuesday.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspected the plant in August after a water pump component failed.

Editor's Note: Two shutdowns in such a short span of time is definitely concerning to say the least.

While the 2011 earthquake and worries surrounding Fukushima have brought the threat of radioactivity back into the public consciousness, many people still don't realize that radioactive contamination is a worldwide danger. Radionuclides are in the top six toxic threats as listed in the 2010 report by The Blacksmith Institute, an NGO dedicated to tackling pollution. You might be surprised by the locations of some of the world’s most radioactive places — and thus the number of people living in fear of the effects radiation could have on them and their children.

While much of the media’s attention has turned away from events in Japan, millions of people are still feeling the after-effects of March’s devastating earthquake and tsunami.
Japanese video journalist Toshi Maeda gives Dateline an insider’s view of the daily challenges still facing residents, including his own wife and young daughter.

Near the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, he finds ghost towns, where those remaining struggle with little work, money or food. Close-knit families have been left divided by the disaster as members move elsewhere to try and make a living.

One family that Toshi meets, the Sakuuchis, also don't know how the radiation, at 14 times the normal level, will ultimately affect them and the youngest member of their family, four-year-old Honoka.

Contamination concerns too are affecting agricultural businesses hundreds of kilometres away, and even daily food shopping in Tokyo has become an ordeal… all with a backdrop of discontent over a lack of government transparency and action.

9/10/2011 (Video) Reconstruction Challenges Six Months after the Great East Japan Earthquake

Source: NHK World: Japan 7 Days
Date: 9/10/2011
by: Minori Takao

Six months have passed since the earthquake and tsunami wreaked havoc on northeastern Japan. This week's Japan 7 Days examines the current situation, the progress to date, and the challenges for reconstruction.

Physical Infrastructure
Minamisanriku, in Miyagi Prefecture, is one of the hardest-hit communities. Newscaster Minori Takao went back to the town for the first time since May to assess the progress in reconstruction of infrastructure and removal of rubble. She also reports on how a temporary shopping street is restoring some sense of normalcy to residents' daily lives.

Social Infrastructure
All of Minamisanriku's evacuation centers were closed by the end of August, once people were relocated to temporary housing. While they have a roof over their head, they lack the community ties that had been established in their old neighborhoods. The town has started sending personnel around to make sure residents don't fall into isolation. Temporary home dwellers have also taken steps of their own, including setting up a "salon" to foster communication.

Business and Industry
Fishing used to be a lucrative occupation in the Omoe district of the city of Miyako. Some fishermen earned more than $130,000 dollars annually. The tsunami, however, washed away most of the area's 800 fishing vessels. A lack of financial aid from the government made things worse. The local fishermen's association started collaborative projects to help, but income has fallen dramatically. The fishermen, however, are not giving up.

Date: Friday, September 16, 2011 22:33 +0900 (JST)

Tropical storm Roke is bringing torrential rain on the Pacific side of western and central Japan. It could trigger more damage to areas already battered by a storm that hit earlier this month.

The Meteorological Agency says the tropical storm was over the sea about 190 kilometers east of Naha, Okinawa, on Friday evening local time.

The storm is packing winds of more than 80 kilometers per hour near its center.

Roke, accompanied by a warm and humid air mass from the Pacific, is currently bringing up to around 50 millimeters of rain per hour to western and central Japan.

Localized downpours have been reported in the Kii Peninsula, which saw record rains from tropical storm Talas earlier this month. Talas left nearly 100 people dead or missing.

In the Kii area, local governments have ordered hundreds of people to evacuate, as dammed-up rivers formed by landslides caused by Talas could collapse under another spell of heavy rain.

Up to 300 millimeters of rain are expected in the region by Saturday afternoon, raising fears of more landslides and other damage. Weather officials are calling on people to stay alert.

9/14/2011 Massive New Radiation Releases Possible from Fukushima … Especially If Melted Core Materials Hit Water

Source: Washington's Blog
Date: 9/14/2011

Governments Underreported Severity of Fukushima

As I’ve noted for 6 months, the Japanese and U.S. governments have continually under-reported the severity of the nuclear crisis at Fukushima.
The Wall Street Journal points out:
The Japanese government initially underestimated radiation releases from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, in part because of untimely rain, and so exposed people unnecessarily, a report released this week by a government research institute says.
PhysOrg writes:
The amount of radiation released during the Fukushima nuclear disaster was so great that the level of atmospheric radioactive aerosols in Washington state was 10,000 to 100,000 times greater than normal levels in the week following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that triggered the disaster.
[A] study [by University of Texas engineering professor Steven Biegalski and researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory] reports that more radioxenon was released from the Fukushima facilities than in the 1979 meltdown at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station in Pennsylvania and in the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the Ukraine.
Biegalski said the reason for the large release in Fukushima, when compared to the others, is that there were three nuclear reactors at the Japan facilities rather than just one.
Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen notes:
New TEPCO data measured on August 19 & 20 shows severe damage to the spent fuel in Fukushima Daiichi Units 1, 2, and 3…. This TEPCO data clearly contradicts and refutes the July assertion by the NRC the Fukushima Daiichi spent fuel pools were not damaged in this tragic accident.
There are also several unconfirmed reports that the Japanese government is trying to keep people from buying geiger counters to measure radiation.

New, Large Radiation Releases Are Possible

Mainichi Dailly News notes:
As a radiation meteorology and nuclear safety expert at Kyoto University’s Research Reactor Institute, Hiroaki Koide [says]:
The nuclear disaster is ongoing.
At present, I believe that there is a possibility that massive amounts of radioactive materials will be released into the environment again.
At the No. 1 reactor, there’s a chance that melted fuel has burned through the bottom of the pressure vessel, the containment vessel and the floor of the reactor building, and has sunk into the ground. From there, radioactive materials may be seeping into the ocean and groundwater.
The government and plant operator TEPCO are trumpeting the operation of the circulation cooling system, as if it marks a successful resolution to the disaster. However, radiation continues to leak from the reactors. The longer the circulation cooling system keeps running, the more radioactive waste it will accumulate. It isn’t really leading us in the direction we need to go.
It’s doubtful that there’s even a need to keep pouring water into the No.1 reactor, where nuclear fuel is suspected to have burned through the pressure vessel. Meanwhile, it is necessary to keep cooling the No. 2 and 3 reactors, which are believed to still contain some fuel, but the cooling system itself is unstable. If the fuel were to become overheated again and melt, coming into contact with water and trigger a steam explosion, more radioactive materials will be released.
We are now head to head with a situation that mankind has never faced before.
Mainichi also reports:
The Ground Self-Defense Force (GSDF) and residents of the zone between 20 and 30 kilometers from the stricken Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant held an emergency evacuation drill on Sept. 12 … in preparation for any further large-scale emission of radioactive materials from the plant.
The scenario for the drill presupposed further meltdown of the Fukushima plant’s No. 3 reactor core, and a local accumulation of radioactive materials emitting 20 millisieverts of radiation within the next four days. …
And nuclear expert Paul Gunter says that we face a “China Syndrome”, where the fuel from the reactor cores at Fukushima have melted through the container vessels, into the ground, and are hitting groundwater and creating highly-radioactive steam:

9/13/2011 Fort Calhoun Nuclear Generating Station Update

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Generating Station is the nuclear power plant run by the OPPD (Omaha Public Power District) which was very close to being overwhelmed by a flooding Missouri river.  Water levels have since subsided but the nuclear power plant has been downgraded by the NRC (Nuclear Regular Commission) and inspectors are investigating the fire which occurred at the facility back in in June, 2011.  According to the Omaha World Herald article "June fire at nuke plant probed":
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has sent a special team of inspectors to Nebraska to learn more about a fire that disrupted power to the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station's spent fuel pool in June.

The pool was without electricity for about 90 minutes, which halted active cooling of the pool. According to federal regulators and the Omaha Public Power District, the fuel wasn't in danger of overheating, because the pool retained more than 80 hours of residual cooling ability.
The NRC has said the plant will not be allowed to resume operations until it's known what caused the fire.

OPPD has estimated that equipment replacement related to the fire could cost $1 million.The plant has been downgraded and is under intense review by regulators for two other problems, one having to do with flood preparations and the other having to do with a bad electrical connector. Dricks said this special team is unrelated to those problems.

9/13/2011 Solar flare could unleash nuclear holocaust across planet Earth, forcing hundreds of nuclear power plants into total meltdowns

Source: Natural News
Date: 9/13/2011
by: Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) Forget about the 2012 Mayan calendar, comet Elenin or the Rapture. The real threat to human civilization is far more mundane, and it's right in front of our noses. If Fukushima has taught us anything, it's that just one runaway meltdown of fissionable nuclear material can have wide-ranging and potentially devastating consequences for life on Earth. To date, Fukushima has already released 168 times the total radiation released from the Hiroshima nuclear bomb detonated in 1945, and the Fukushima catastrophe is now undeniably the worst nuclear disaster in the history of human civilization.

9/12/2011 Explosion occurs at French nuclear facility

Source: NHK World
Date: Tuesday, September 13, 2011 05:55 +0900 (JST)
by: Keiko Kitagawa

An explosion has occurred at a nuclear waste processing plant in the suburb of Nimes in southern France. The country's nuclear safety body says no radioactive leaks have been detected. The blast in Marcoule took place shortly before noon on Monday. One person reportedly died and 4 others were injured. The nuclear agency says the explosion occurred in an oven used to melt metallic waste that contains very little radioactivity. The plant is operated by a subsidiary of the EDF power company. A spokesperson says a fire broke out after the explosion, but it has since been brought under control. Local media say no evacuation orders have been issued to residents living near the facility. The nuclear safety authorities are investigating how the blast occurred. The International Atomic Energy Agency has set up a task force. It is asking the French authorities to provide details of the accident in order to ascertain the situation.

Dr. Helen Caldicott, The Helen Caldicott Foundation/ joins Thom from Australia. We're now nearly six month removed from the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan that triggered a global nuclear catastrophe. And while some progress has been made to deal with this never-before-seen nuclear crisis - there's still a long way to go - lots of questions still unanswered - and enormous risk still blanketing the nation of Japan. So much so - that world renowned physician and anti-nuclear advocate Dr. Helen Caldicott recently issued a dire warning to the Japanese people. Not buying into the Japanese government's efforts to downplay the crisis - Dr. Caldicott warned people living in North Japan and around the crippled Fukushima reactors to get the hell out of the area.

Editor's Note: This is the nuclear power plant 60 miles Southeast of Los Angeles where there was a recent 4.2 magnitude earthquake.  Every time there is a fast unexpected shutdown, or "SCRAM" it degrades the integrity of the reactor core somewhat.  This of course is not a good thing.  See the excellent article "Earthquakes, Hurricanes Highlight Serious Regulation Flaws" for more details on this.

9/1/2011 Reactors restart after Irene

Source: World Nuclear News
Date: 9/1/2011

Two nuclear power reactors which were shut down as Hurricane Irene swept up the east coast of the USA have now been restarted. Exelon's single-unit Oyster Creek plant in New Jersey was taken offline on 27 August as a precaution against the approaching hurricane-force winds. The utility, having found that the reactor had not sustained any damage, announced that the 636 MWe boiling water reactor had restarted operation on 30 August. Constellation reported on 31 August that it had restarted unit 1 at its Calvert Cliffs plant in Maryland. The 825 MWe pressurized water reactor shut down automatically after aluminium cladding dislodged from a nearby building hit a transformer, while the plant's second unit continued to operate safely.
