Former TEPCO exec denies delaying anti-tsunami steps before nuclear crisis – Japan Today

“I had no intention to buy time and I’m offended by the claim that I put off taking measures,” said Muto, who is charged with professional negligence resulting in deaths and injuries in connection with one of the world’s worst nuclear crises.

Along with Muto, another former vice president Ichiro Takekuro, 72, and former chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata, 78, were also indicted in 2016 for allegedly failing to take measures to prevent the disaster.

Sent in – That seems like a frequent problem – there have been rad pacemakers melted too. But, the americium is a problem because of the old smoke detectors I think.

A huge problem under which they are able to hide nuclear power and weapons cancer is old radium watches many of which are still around. They have so much radiation in them that wearing them constantly gives 70 mSv exposure per year. EPA exposure for NPS is 0.25 mSv and NRC 1 mSv. According to BEIR there is approximately 1% chance of excess cancer per 100 mSv exposure. They continued to sell radium clocks in watches until at least the 70s full knowing since the 20s or earlier that they are deadly.
Someone needs to sue the watch and clockmakers like Bulova. Bulova also left a big rad mess sitting in the middle of a Swiss town that someone found with a Geiger a few years ago.

Just to make clear, that’s one source of Americium. Another is fairly short-lived plutonium 241 ingrowth to longer-lived americium 241. I may post this later, if I have time:
