Breaking News: Control rod was not controlled

On 3/11,The Nuclear Agency clearly announced that they managed to plug control rods to unit 1~3.

However,8/12/2011 22:02,Tepco confessed to The Nuclear Agency,they thought they plugged control rods but because the meter was broken at unit 1 and 4,they can’t tell if the rods were properly plugged.

This statement has a couple of logical failures.

1) Why The Nuclear Agency announced they managed to plug control rods to unit1~3 ?

2) In unit4,there was supposed to be no active fuel rods.Why did they plug control rod to unit4 ?

3) Now they don’t even know if control rod might not be properly plugged,why do they allow workers to go beside unit1 ? It can happen / is already happening nuclear reaction any time.

Today,they also revealed that cabinet knew meltdown was happening,serious amount of radiation was already leaking just after the earthquake,but they kept people stay near nuclear plants and let them seriously exposed.and chief secretary of cabinet,Edano even announced radiation is not leaking.

Also,Tepco’s employees and their family dominated all the buses from Fukushima to evacuate just after 311,other people had no clue to evacuate.

Hidden ugly truth is revealed day after day.

About this site

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.
