MIAMI TURKEY POINT NUCLEAR POWER PLANT; POLLUTING BISCAYNE BAY WITH RADIATION UP TO 250 TIMES NORMALLY FOUND IN SEAWATER

Sitting adjacent to Biscayne National Park, the Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station has been leaking radioactive materials into protected waters, according to a new study. Performed by Dr. David Chin from the University of Miami, the results released Tuesday morning by Miami-Dade County found high levels of a radioactive isotope in Biscayne Bay. Those radioactive waters are coming from the power plant's cooling canals, raising radioactivity levels 215 times higher than normally found in seawater, the report added. "This is one of several things we were very worried about," South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard told the Miami New Times. "You would have to work hard to find a worse place to put a nuclear plant, right between two national parks and subject to hurricanes and storm surge." Two weeks ago, a Tallahassee judge ordered Florida Power and Light Co., owner of the plant, and the state to clean up the cooling canals, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

TRITIUM KEYCHAIN RADIATION LEVEL MEASURED AT 200-300 COUNTS PER MINUTE; HOW IS THIS LEGALLY ALLOWED TO SIT NEXT TO SKIN IN SOMEONE'S POCKET? WHAT IF CHILDREN BREAK THIS OPEN AND DRINK IT?


FUKUSHIMA AND TRITIUM


The Fukushima nuclear plant is 'leaking' massive amounts (400 tons+) per DAY, of radioactive Tritium, Strontium, Cesium, Plutonium, plus many other radioatice elements. The concentrations of radioactive elements are rising stratospherically since 3/11, with no end in sight.

All nuclear power plants require millions of gallons of cooling water daily, to keep the nuclear reactor cool. Nuclear power plants all need this water PLUS electricity 24 hours a day, with no interuptions, or they will explode and/or melt down, just as Fukushima did. After all, a nuclear reactor is just like a nuclear bomb, only in slow motion, with mechanisms to stop it from doing what nuclear bombs do best. 

So are nuclear power plants paying for their share of the water they use? It turns out, that despite all of us paying for water that we use, often by the cubic foot, all nuclear power plants get a free corporate welfare pass. They get to use as much water as they want, forever free. So how does this work?

NUCLEAR PLANTS DON'T PAY FOR THE COOLING WATER THEY USE AND THEN POLLUTE WITH TRITIUM


"Each nuclear power plant is permitted to withdraw water from our nation’s water sources through the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System program, established in 1972 with the passage of the Clean Water Act. What most of these profit-yielding plants do not have to do, however, is pay for withdrawing this water (and then polluting it with tritium and other radioactive pollutants).

Now let’s contrast this for a moment. The agriculture industry and farmers of our country withdraw approximately 31 percent of our nation’s water. But the kicker is that nearly all farmers’ highest budget expenditure is crop irrigation. According to the U.S. Geological Survey’s water-use report, published every five years since the 1950s, the U.S. farming has become more efficient with water use."

MOST OF THE WATER USED IN ILLINOIS IS USED FOR NUCLEAR REACTOR COOLING
 

It is not just the free water use that may be a problem. Did you know that MOST of the water used in Illinois (more that 75%), is used as nuclear reactor coolant? This precious water goes into these nuclear power plants cool, fresh and clean, and then it comes out carrying a LOT of waste HEAT, plus radioactive particles like Tritium. 

In cases of a nuclear plant accident, for hundreds if not thousands of miles around, water is polluted with radioactive toxins, sometimes forever. Then cities downstream drink this stuff. For more information about this issue, see the related articles at the end of this article.

Where does all of this waste heat and regular releases of radioactive substances released from ALL nuclear plants go? Well, it has to go into the air, which adds to the global warming and radioactive contamination problem. We have to multiply the effect of 400-1000 of these plants and associated spent fuel pools, so the total may be well over 2,000 HUGE heat and radioactive contamination sources. 

Part of the problem with normally operating nuclear power plants is that they ALL emit radioactive toxins on a regular basis (with permission from the 'regulators'). 

URANIUM MINING POLLUTES GROUND WATER, DRINKING WATER AND AIR


 Mining also generates radioactive waste products that end up in the water supply.

Stored radioactive waste spent fuel pools also generate radioactive gases. Leaks from nuclear plants and accidents release even more radiation. 

Have you ever wondered what comes out of these nuclear power plants? Well, among other things, humanity and surrounding communities near these nuclear reactors get some or all of the following. The doses and amounts increase, especially in case of 'accidents', such as TMI, Chernobyl, and now Fukushima.

The industry says all of this is ok, and 'safe' for health, because low level radiation does not affect anyone. Even accidents are ok with them. They say that they can 'take' one of these huge eco-disasters that makes thousands of square miles uninhabitable for millions of years once every twenty years or so. Do you agree? How many of these disasters that make thousands of square miles permanently contaminated can we take over the next 100,000 years? 

NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS POLLUTE HUNDREDS TO THOUSANDS OF SQUARE MILES OF LAND WITH RADIATION, MAKING THEM INTO NO GO RADIOACTIVE HEAVY METAL CONTAMINATED SACRIFICE ZONES


Source/credit; CEREA

According to; Chernobyl Disaster's Agricultural and Environmental Impact, the "1986 Chernobyl accident contaminated 125,000 square miles of land in Belarus." Assume we get one of these accidents every 20 years or so, for the next 500 years. That means we can multiply 25 accidents X 125,000 square miles, and we end up with over 3 MILLION square miles contaminated with radiation within 500 years. Is this a future we all want to live with as global citizens? We are ignoring the land contaminated by nuclear tests, uranium mining, processing, recycling, disposal, transport, wars, etc. 

Add all of those contaminated areas, and we may easily end up with 5 million square miles of radioactive wastelands in the next 500 years. Multiply that over the next 100,000 years, and it is easy to see that nuclear power is NOT SUSTAINABLE as an energy source.

The pro nuclear apologists say that internal radiation does not exist and cannot hurt anyone, because radioactive substances pass right through the body, without being absorbed. But neutral scientists and medical doctors say that is not so. Could there be deceptions and lies going on?

Low level nuclear radiation affects all humans in a negative fashion. Fetuses are hundreds to thousands of times more sensitive to radiation than adults are. Radioactive substances act like potassium, calcium and iodine in the body, just to name a few, and substitute for these minerals in the body. 

The low level radiation and toxic heavy metal such as strontium, iodine, cesium, uranium or plutonium destroys and mutates cells. They cause all kinds of negative genetic damage, while initiating cancer. The cancer shows up between five to 15 or more years down the road. But the negative health effects show up almost immediately. 

All nuclear plants release radioactive tritium into the cooling water that they use, on a regular basis. This is fact. Apologists claim it is 'harmless', but let's look into this deeper, shall we?

WHAT IS TRITIUM?


"According to Wikipedia, Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. The National Institute of Standards and Technology lists the half life of Tritium as 12.3 years. Since it takes about ten times that amount of time to fully decay into something else, the total time is actually 123 years for it to decay fully. Tritium is potentially dangerous if inhaled or ingested. It can combine with oxygen to form tritiated water molecules, and those can be absorbed through pores in the skin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tritium

HEALTH RISKS OF TRITIUM


Tritium is an isotope of hydrogen, which allows it to readily bind to hydroxyl radicals, forming tritiated water (HTO), and to carbon atoms. It is a beta radiation emitter. (According to Dr. Caldicott MD, a pediatrian expert on radiation, tritium inside the body causes genetic damage and initiates cancer, cell by cell. Could this be why cancer rates of children go up drastically the closer they live to nuclear power plants?)

Besides being regularly vented from all nuclear reactors, radioactive Tritium has also leaked from 48 of 65 nuclear sites in the United States, temporarily increasing the local level of radioactivity by up to 375 times, above the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards.[18]

Like hydrogen, tritium is difficult to confine. Rubber, plastic, and some kinds of steel are all somewhat permeable. This has raised concerns that if tritium were used in large quantities, in particular for fusion reactors, it may contribute to global radioactive contamination.

Regulatory limits of Tritium Releases


The legal limits for radioactive Tritium in drinking water vary from country-to-country and from continent-to-continent. Some figures are given below. 

Country                                                      Maximum Amount Allowed In Bequerels Per Liter

European Union:                                                                   100 Bq/l 

United States:                                                                        740 Bq/l 

Canada:                                                                              7,000 Bq/l

Tritium In North Atlantic Ocean 


Tritium did not exist before the nuclear age. Now levels of tritium are increasing in the Pacific ocean due to Fukushima. While in the stratosphere (post-test period), the tritium interacted with and oxidized to water molecules and was present in much of the rapidly produced rainfall. Most of the bomb tritiated water (HTO) throughout the atmosphere can enter the ocean through the following processes: a) precipitation, b) vapor exchange, and c) river runoff . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tritium

Tritium is 'leaked' or dumped, or released legally from all nuclear installations in massive amounts. All nuclear plants 'leak' tritium on a daily basis, through both the spent fuel pools and reactors, which vent on a daily basis, all kinds of radioactive elements, in MASSIVE amounts. 

Tritium In Pacific and Indian Oceans 

In a 1998 study, tritium concentrations in surface seawater and atmospheric water vapor (10 meters above the surface) were sampled at the following locations: the Sulu Sea, the Fremantle Bay, the Bay of Bengal, the Penang Bay, and the Strait of Malacca.[22]

Results indicated that the tritium concentration in surface seawater was highest at the Fremantle Bay (approximately 0.40 Bq/liter), which could be accredited to the mixing of runoff of freshwater from nearby lands due to large amounts found in coastal waters.[22] Typically, lower concentrations were found between 35 and 45 degrees south latitude and near the equator

Results also indicated that (in general) tritium has decreased over the years (up to 1997) due to the physical decay of bomb tritium in the Indian Ocean. As for water vapor, the tritium concentration was approximately one order of magnitude greater than surface seawater concentrations (ranging from 0.46 to 1.15 Bq/liter).[22]

Therefore, the water vapor tritium is not affected by the surface seawater concentration; thus, the high tritium concentrations in the vapor were concluded to be a direct consequence of the downward movement of natural tritium from the stratosphere to the troposphere (therefore, the ocean air showed a dependence on latitudinal change)[22] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tritium

Tritium In Mississippi River System 


The impacts of the nuclear fallout were even felt in the United States throughout the Mississippi River System. In a 2004 study, several rivers were taken into account during the examination of tritium concentrations (starting in the 1960s) throughout the Mississippi River Basin: Ohio River (largest input to the Mississippi River flow), Missouri River, and Arkansas River.[24]

The largest tritium concentrations were found in 1963 at all the sampled locations throughout these rivers and correlate well with the peak concentrations in precipitation due to the nuclear bomb tests in 1962. 

The overall highest concentrations occurred in the Missouri River (1963) and were greater than 1,200 TU while the lowest concentrations were found in the Arkansas River (never greater than 850 TU and less than 10 TU in the mid-1980s).[24]

As for the mass flux of tritium through the main stem of the Mississippi River into the Gulf of Mexico, data indicated that approximately 780 grams of tritium has flowed out of the River and into the Gulf between 1961 and 1997.[24] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tritium

SUMMARY

What do you think the maximum amount of radiation in drinking water or milk should be? Do you think any of these folks that set up all of these wildly different standards have any clue about ACTUAL safety? Why would these supposed safety standards vary so widely? This regulatory rule making stuff makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. 

The problem with this is that researchers have found that children have toxic and irreversible heart damage with radioactive substances at a level of only 10 - 50 Bq/kg. Damage starts being visible at 10 Bq/kg, so all of the above 'safe' limits are totally insane and have no basis in reality for children, much less a fetus, sperm, or fertilized egg, which are all orders of magnitude more sensitive to ALL radiation.

Since tritium enters the body with water, and water is absorbed, radioactive tritium levels can readily and easily build up in the body. Tritium does cross the placenta barrier, and it does affect the baby.
