Marie formed off of Mexico’s southwestern coast at 03:00 UTC on August 22 consolidating into Tropical Depression 13-E and strengthened into a tropical storm by 09:00 UTC. Over the next two days Marie rapidly intensified and reached Category 4 hurricane status by 20:40 UTC on August 24 causing dangerous surf along the west coast of Mexico.Swells generated by this massive system will continue to affect much of the west coast of the Baja California, the extreme southern Gulf of California and southern California through Thursday, August 28. Life-threatening surf and rip current conditions are likely as a result of these swells as well as minor coastal flooding. National Hurricane Center (NHC) noted on August 25, “Marie has an impressive concentric eyewall structure in … »

When the Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina took the microphone at the Foreign Correspondence Club in Japan, the global impact of Fukushima radiation became much clearer.Scientist Timothy A. Mousseau presented “Fukushima Catastrophe and its Effects on Wildlife,” before a room of press and correspondents, reporting the real-life damage that Fukushima fallout is having on the planet’s ecosystem. He gave dire news to Japan and compared the damage done by Fukushima to that of Chernobyl.Twenty-two minutes into the speech, Mousseau spoke on how the radiation is killing off birds. “These next figures are really, really important, and this really was the motivation for speaking today,” he said. “These are the results from four yea… »

Yesterday we reported on TEPCO’s admission of ongoing daily sea releases of contaminated water to the Pacific. The TEPCO rep in the press conference cited the tritium level as being 1 billion becquerels per day. The graph submitted by TEPCO to METI showed a quite different amount for the tritium readings.
The journalists at the conference prodded TEPCO for actual readings due to the graph having wide ranges and exact numbers were not published along side it. The cart appears to show a very clear reading of 150 billion bq per day for tritium at the 2014 rate, not the 1 billion bq per day quoted by TEPCO in the meeting. The other isotope readings quoted by TEPCO appear to be accurate. This big change in the daily tritium release increases the daily total radiation release to the sea as being 157 billion becquerels per day.
