Radiation Bulletin: June 24th – 30th 2013

Summary

rabull-grayJapan’s Liberal Democratic Party is the only one in the country that supports any nuclear option! There were only a few Fukushima scandals, like Tepco refusing to pay people for mental distress, as well as a worsening in the serious underground radioactive contaminants hitting the ocean. The good news at Koodamkulam (India),  there’s no underground volcano, and its still not online!

I usually attempt to do a sampling of the US news, but this time wanted to put attention on California since there has been a bit of good news.  One down and 400 plus more to go! At the CEC’s recent IEPR workshop newly discovered documents by A4NR shows that the NRC coached the local utility PG&E on how to overturn its own resident inspector back in 2010.  Diablo Canyon clearly isn’t capable of withstanding the highest seismic standards it supposed to be built for.

And just as this news starts to creep out, PG&E over a year ahead of the next round of seismic studies scheduled to be completed has already started a major campaign around the region promoting its local-centric economic benefits, even announcing its plan to relicense the reactors over a decade before its current license comes due.  The battle is on, we’ve caught both PG&E and NRC in a very very bad position.  They, and the state will be throwing everything it can to keep Diablo from following San Onofre.  Another worry is the growing backlash that is being tossed up in the regional media around San Onofre.  There are a lot of upset workers and pro-nuke types.  A lot of help will be needed to counter the backlash, with SCE announcing another 700 rank and file nuke workers being laid off in the last couple of week.
