2007,Niigata had a major earthquake and serious trouble at Kashiwazaki Kariwa genpatsu.
Having this disaster,Niigata planned on safety exercise in 2010.
However,nuclear agency stopped them. They commented,nuclear plant is safe even for extremely strong earthquake. Safety exercise on the assumption that earthquake and nuclear disaster happen at once causes panic and misunderstanding about nuclear power.
Petition/obligation to stop re-start the Tokai dai ni nuc plant and abandon the plant.
The plant was damaged by 5m height of Tsunami in 311. It needs to be abandoned right now,like all the other nuc plants.
Please sign on it.
Japanese Bruce Willis,Mr.Yoshida is the chief of Fukushima workers.
He apologizes for all the disaster and shows us how they work.
[Interview with evacuated children]
Some of the Fukushima children evacuated from Fukushima.They had a meeting with jap gov yesterday,but they couldn’t hide their disappointment about how reluctant gov is to save Fukushima children.
They are junior highschool students.”People from gov could not even answer our questions(such as why they don’t let all the children evacuate from Fukushima.). We wanted to meet Jap pm or minister of science,whoever has more responsibility.”
“When I evacuated,all the other classmates started to take the situation seriously.Everyone knows it’s not safe anymore. I don’t want to be apart from my classmates,but I can’t stay in Fukushima.”
To push out Strontium-90 from our body,we must take calcium.To take calcium,we need to drink milk or eat fish.
However,according to the sea food contamination report from ministry of farm shows we should not eat sea food. The report was published 8/17/2011.

US government was planning to make all the 90,000 American citizens evacuate from Tokyo on 3/16.
They already knew Fukushima was having meltdown. They were extremely doubtful about jap gov.
They decided not to have them evacuate to be concerned about the potential effect to the alliance between Japan and America.
I personally think that was because America wanted to invest into nuc more actually.
The journalist of Tokyo shimbum,Noro Norio commented,
“Stopping nuc gradually ,or shifting to other energy source gradually are nothing different from pro-nuc.All the nuc plants must be stopped right now.”
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.
