(PORTLAND, OR) – Turner Radio Network (TRN) has issued a report regarding Fukushima Diachi Nuclear Plant that is expected to affect the entire Northern Hemisphere.
According to the report: “Persons residing on the west coast of North America should IMMEDIATELY begin preparing for another possible onslaught of dangerous atmospheric radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site in Japan.”
TEPCO has confirmed that via camera surveillance, that steam has begun to pour from Reactor 3, although they have “not been identified abnormal plant conditions.”
TEPCO are reporting that “radioactive steam has suddenly begun emanating from previously exploded nuclear reactor building #3 at the Fukuishima disaster site in Japan.”
The corporation is not clear on the details of the sudden change at Reactor 3 because of “lethal radiation levels in that building.”

Summations from experts conclude that this may “be the beginning of a ‘spent fuel pool criticality (meltdown)’ involving up to 89 TONS of nuclear fuel burning up into the atmosphere and heading to North America.”
Steam has been viewed coming from Reactor 3.
Educated guesses suggest that the steam is “coming from what’s left of the fifth floor of the mostly-destroyed building.”
TEPCO has admitted that “they do not know why this steam is being generated, but matter-of-factly revealed today (December 28) the steam was first spotted on December 19 for a short period of time, then again on December 24 and again on December 25.”
The accord is that “pellets of radioactive fuel, ejected when the reactor exploded, went into the spent fuel pool located above the reactor and have begun melting down so seriously they are boiling off the water in the spent fuel pool.”
Should this be the case “the situation could escalate rapidly out of control.”

TRN is warning of preparatory measures that should be taken by those living on the West Coast of America because after the “releasing 89 tons of deadly radioactive fuel directly into the air”, it would be a matter or 2 to 3 days before the deadly material would fry North America “by [the] levels of airborne radiation and ‘hot particles’ which could kill.”
Some of the recommendations to mitigate damaging effect of radiation exposure include:
  • Buy Duct tape, masking tape and self-adhesive weather stripping
  • Cover windows and doors with plastic
  • Cover electrical outlets and light switches with plastic
  • Cover vents in bathrooms and stoves with plastic
  • Purchase a NIOSH N100-certified filter mask for each member of the family
  • Purchase disposable TYVEK suit for going outside
  • Wash obsessively

OPC Petitions Commission to Consider Ordering a Hold on Smart Meter Exchanges

31 Mar

People’s Counsel Sandra Mattavous-Frye has asked the
 DC Public Service Commission to halt meter exchanges
for all remaining Pepco customers who have indicated that
they do not want a radio frequency “smart meter” placed on 
or in their home. In September 2012, the PSC issued Order 
No. 16892  initiating an Investigation to consider the feasibility
 of a smart meter opt-out provision. To date, OPC has continued
to receive complaints from consumers who want the ability to
refuse the installation of Pepco’s smart meter. “While a consultant
has been hired to conduct a study, no procedural schedule has been
issued and it may be some time before the Commission has the
data it needs to develop a decision,” said the People’s Counsel.

Given the formative stage of the proceeding and the primary 
issue, whether consumers can opt-out, OPC believes that allowing
the company to force consumers to accept the meters defeats the
purpose of the proceeding.  Therefore, OPC’s petition requests the
Commission issue an order allowing consumers who have not had a
smart meter installed at this time to refuse the installation of a new
meter until the PSC renders a decision.

  In Pepco’s Maryland service territory, the Maryland PSC issued 
an Interim Order Regarding an Opt-out Option for Smart Meters,
directing Pepco not to install a smart meter on the home or business
of customers who notified the Company in writing that they did not
wish to have a smart meter installed.

  “In light of the challenges we have faced in the District, this 
action would be in the public interest, and would be responsive
to many of the consumers who remain concerned about the safety,
accuracy and security of the new meters. This action would not
preclude Pepco from installing a smart meter at some later point
subject to the requirements of the PSC decision in this case,” said
People’s Counsel Mattavous-Frye.
