Column of the Day: New conflict

Anti-nuc side is getting the victory all over the world except for America.

Even in Japan,even by the most moderate news paper took a survey,which proves at least 65% of Japanese are anti-nuc now.

Did someone say ,nothing will change even after 311 ?

Anyway,the bottom line has become “anti-nuc.”

and now the new conflict has started,it’s

decontamination VS evacuation

Dr. Kodama Tatsuhiko became a star because of his outstanding speech at House of Representatives.

The video went around on the internet.

On the other hand,Mr.Koide from Kyoto university has been predicting what is going to happen since 311.

He’s a calm,moderate man,but what he pointed out has been always right.

Now both are charisma.

Dr.Kodama claims we should do decontamination.and it’s possible.

Mr.Koide claims decontamination is impossible because you can never change the soil of mountain.

The former one sounds more like “pro-nuc”.He believes in technology,and “passion”.

The later one may sound depressing,but might be realistic.

Mr Koide says,polluted food must be consumed by politician,tepco employees,and old people,but we must save young generation whatever the cost is.

I’m personally for Mr.Koide. I think decontamination is a fantasy.

Einstein said,I have never worried about something,because future comes at light speed.

We will know which one was right soon.

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.
