PRESS REVIEW – March 17, 2011

LOS ANGELES — The U.S. government and scientists insist that there’s no threat of radiation from Japan endangering people on the West Coast — but that hasn’t stopped roughly 1,000 worried Californians from flooding a state hotline.

Sir John Beddington Top British Scientist Reviews Risks

Access the transcript of the conversation with the Chief Scientific Officer with David Fitton at the British Embassy in Tokyo on 15 March. Sir John Rex Beddington, CMG, FRS is the Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK Government and Professor of Applied Population Biology at Imperial College London, (March 15, 2011 update).

A few words about his view of what’s happening:

“It’s serious again for the local area. It’s not serious for elsewhere even if you get a combination of that explosion it would only have nuclear material going in to the air up to about 500 metres. If you then couple that with the worst possible weather situation i.e. prevailing weather taking radioactive material in the direction of Greater Tokyo and you had maybe rainfall which would bring the radioactive material down do we have a problem? The answer is unequivocally no. Absolutely no issue. The problems are within 30 km of the reactor.

And to give you a flavour for that, when Chernobyl had a massive fire at the graphite core, material was going up not just 500 metres but to 30,000 feet. It was lasting not for the odd hour or so but lasted months, and that was putting nuclear radioactive material up into the upper atmosphere for a very long period of time.”

“The problems with Chernobyl were people were continuing to drink the water, continuing to eat vegetables and so on and that was where the problems came from.

That’s not going to be the case here.”

“The containment vessel of Dai-Ichi’s No. 2 reactor may have been breached yesterday, and pressure in the chamber fell “substantially,” said Masahisa Otsuku, a Tokyo Electric Power Co. nuclear maintenance official.”

“This is really quite modest amounts of radioactive material and it’s not likely, by and large, one shouldn’t be concerned about it” claims British Chief Scientific Officer.

 

Emergency crews were forced to retreat from Japan’s stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant Wednesday after a spike in radiation. The pullback cost precious time in the fight to prevent a nuclear meltdown. (March 16)

Review of Japanese Nuclear Meltdown & Jet Stream Map

 


Officials insisted that unless the quake-damaged nuclear plants deteriorated into full meltdown, any radiation that reached the United States would be too weak to do any harm. Washington had “hypothetical plots” for worst-case plume dispersal within hours of the start of the crisis, a senior official said Sunday. The aim, the official added, was “more to help Japan” than the United States, since few experts foresaw high levels of radiation reaching the West Coast.” (Energy Department officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity)
