Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Japan rejects Greenpeace argument for expanding evacuation zone | Reuters

(Reuters) - Japan's nuclear safety agency on Monday rebuffed a call by Greenpeace to extend an evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima power plant.

An agency official told a news briefing that the measurements of high radiation the group said it had found at 40 km from the facility could not be considered reliable.

He added that most residents in the area concerned had left and hardly anyone was living there anymore.

Huh!? The government measured levels even higher than Greenpeace's 10 μSv/h in that zone... we have been discussing the area around Namie for a week.

Well, clearly...

The readings being retracted are not due to miscalculation. If you will check the tides for the last 24hrs you will see that the initial VERY HIGH reading was @ high tide. The second re-reading was taken @ low tide. This style reactor uses a single cooling loop and appears to have a leak in the turbine room. The tides coming in puts positive pressure in this loop and radiation collects. When the tide goes out it places a vaccume on the system pulling vast amounts out to sea.
Tepco will publish samples taken @ low tide from now on it seems.

Certainly not good for children or pregnant women to smoke 3-4 cigarettes a day.
