JP Gov officially admit they concealed the worst senario though they assumed it
On 1/29, Minister of environment, Hosono Goshi answered in the interview of Kyodo to admit they concealed the worst senario of Fukushima accident.
After 311, they limited the access to the worst senario such as Kan Japanese prime minister etc.. Only a few people could know what they assume to be the worst.
Hosono tells, The worst senario was unrealistic. If they announced after 311, nobody might have remained in Tokyo. If so, they could not settle it down Fukushima accident.
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
