[Japan decides against evacuating Fukushima Prefecture residents]

Nothing less than criminal..

The Japanese government has decided to cancel the order to evacuate the residents of several populated areas in the Fukushima Prefecture that lie outside the 20km area around the crippled Fukushima-1 NPP, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano reported on Tuesday.

This decision affects 58,000 people in five municipalities and is explained by the progress achieved in clearing the aftermath of the crisis at the nuclear power plant. Edano also said that the authorities will allow residents of neighbourhoods situated within 3km from the plant to make short visits to their houses. Earlier this area was closed for everyone except rescuers.

[The truth]

@kimuratomo
きむらとも
なぜこんなにも政府は原発事故を過小評価しようとするのか。答えは簡単。補償額の多寡ではない。真実を公表すれば首都機能の存否、国体の存否に関わり、国際社会で信認暴落、たちまちトリプル安からスタグフレーション、食糧高騰で大量飢餓者発生し再起不能。それほど深刻な汚染と認識しているからだ。

@kimuratomo
Why does the government try to downplay the seriousness of the nuclear crisis? The answer is simple. It is not because of the compensation liability. It is because they are afraid that if the truth were to come out it would threaten the existence of Tokyo as Japan’s capital, it would call into question Japan’s viability as a nation, the country would suffer a disastrous loss of international confidence, and the economy would be exposed to a simultaneous “triple plunge” (in the yen’s value, stock prices and bond prices) followed by stagflation. Steep rises in food prices would cause a large number of people to starve, and Japan would be unable to recover. The government knows that the contamination from the accident is that serious, and it’s the reason they try to minimize it.

@kimuratomo
Warum unterschätzt die Regierung den Atomunfall? Die Antwort ist einfach. Die Höhe der Entschädigung ist es nicht. Wenn die Wahrheit öffentlich wird, hängt das mit den Ausgaben der Hauptstadt zusammen und mit den Ausgaben des Staates, das Vertrauen der internationalen Gemeinschaft sinkt und es kommt zu Kursstürzen und sofort zu Triple Sell off Stagflation, durch plötzliches Steigen der Lebensmittelpreise eine große Anzahl Hungernder, diese Entwicklung lässt sich nicht wieder rückgängig machen. Dem gegenüber ist die Umweltverschmutzung weniger schwerwiegend.

[Deceptive labeling]

何年か前にNHKで食品の産地偽装を摘発する「食品Gメン」の密着レポを放送したんだけど、その中でGメンの人が証言してた。「都内の複数のスーパーの店頭に並んでいるコメをすべてDNA検査したところ、3割から4割の商品に違う産地や品種のコメが混ぜてあった」

In the case Gman is a person here the translation: Some years ago, to unmask the origin of the food, NHK broadcasted the “G-man” report in which one he testified “we got the whole results of DNA test of rise from several supermarket of Tokyo and 30~40% of rise from different origin place was found mixed”.

[Cesium rice]

First time,they detected cesium from the highest brand Koshihikari in Tochigi -> 21 bq/kg

55 bq/kg (from “Koganemochi brand”)

They will sell because the national “legal” limit is 500 bq/kg.

Ph.D. Takeda talks,we shouldn’t take more than 14 bq/kg.

[Thief]

SPEEDI is a computer simulating system for nuclear emergency.
They have invested 12 billion yen into it since 1986.
However,they concealed the simulation data after 311,a lot of people were exposed to radiation from Fukushima nuc plants.

but for some reason,3/14,ministry of science decided to invest more 800 million yen into the the system that nobody has / will ever use except for the purpose of golden parachute.
