[Massive steam from unit4]

8/14/2011 11:00~12:00
About 2:00~ of this video.
The largest steam in day time ever.


The comedy duo,”Oshidori mako/ken” was purged because they published the report about neptunium239.

They whistle-blew the accepting report about neptunium239 found in Iidatemura.

The comedy duo had one of their TV programs cancelled by the TV sponsor.

They told the duo,”TV show is a product to sell,so we can’t be against our sponsor.It’s taboo to talk about Tepco and Genpatsu at variety program.”

The duo was imposed silence on which TV channel and what TV show it is,but they say it is the major one.!/makomelo/status/103063395267391488!/makomelo/status/103067446667259904!/makomelo/status/103121130763714560!/makomelo/status/103122327901974528

[It’s getting full]

In Kanto area,radioactive sewage sludge has become 120 thousand tonnes.
In Kanagawa prefecture,the max is 4,540 Bq/kg,it’s legal to use it to fill land but residents are expected to resist it.
In Tachiwaka,Tokyo,max level is over 8,000 Bq/kg.They can’t find the place to use it to fill land either.
They are trying to build new shelter,but they don’t know how much the total will be.

[Of the government,by the government,for the government]

Chris Busby;ICRP is the model to let them conduct nuclear tests all around in the world.They underestimate the risk of internal exposure by 900 times at the maximum.

(ICRP was made in 1952. DNA was found in 1953)

[cardiac infarct]

Three acquaintances died of cardiac infarct almost at once. They were all fine,till died.
They were helping people to get their cars back left in the mandatory evacuating area.

8/9 AM 32 years old man died.
8/9 PM 34 years old man died.
8/10 PM 44 years old man died.

[International contamination]

Researchers in California university confirmed that radioactive sulfur flew to California on 3/28 ,which was as 3 times much as average. This radioactive sulfur was produced from chlorine when they sprinkle sea water onto the reactors in Fukushima.

[Cesium rice will flood into the market]

They detected 11.6 Bq/kg from the “stem” of the rice.
The legal limit is 500 Bq/kg (No basis),so they will start selling them all around in Japan.

No wonder,they will export the rice too.

[Manipulation of past comment]

Radiation advisory in Fukushima,Yamashita Shunichi revised his own comment trying not to let anyone notice it.
He said,you do not have any problem in 100uSv/h area at all.Even if it’s 5,10,or 20uSv/h,don’t worry,let your children play outside.

Today,at the bottom of the HP of Fukushima,he revised his own comment.

100uSv/h was a mistake.It’s 10uSv/h.”

A lot of the children have already been exposed because of his “mistake”

[Tweet of a Japanese journalist in US]

Dr.Gundersen emailed a journalist,Iizuka Makiko,
“Fukushima has emit 2~5 times as much Xe-133 as Chernobyl.This means more fuel rods have been damaged in Fukushima than Chernobyl.The situation is worse than Chernobyl as expected.”!/makiko_iizuka/status/103372502360788992

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.
