4/13/2011,the next day of when they finally admitted Fukushima was level 7,Minister of economy,Kaieda and Minister of science revised the rule of subsidy to let the pro-nuc local governments receive more subsidy.
It was revised not to let anyone notice.Today Tokyo Shimbum scooped it finally.
When they build a new plant (1350 thousand KW);44.9 billion yen→48.1 billion yen (3.2 billion yen up)
They also stopped paying subsidy for stopped plants,they will pay based on the past amount of power production of a plant.so local governments are given more incentive to keep plants moving and build more plants.
My friend,who is involved in medical industry turned out to be bearing an anencephalic baby.She decided to get an abortion. She says this case has been increasing since 311. Another nurse stated,abortion threatened has been increasing too though the mother had been totally fine.
The same situation was observed when Chernobyl happened.
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.
