[Another nuc is in trouble]

2.59uSv/h in Fukui.
WTF is going on there.

[Tweet of a mother in Fukushima]
@RinRinRinjiro @jelly_beans9 @hanayuu 私の娘も、校外学習から、口を縛ったビニール袋をおみやげに持って帰ってきました。「ママに美味しい空気を吸わせてあげたくて」泣きそうでした。

My daughter came back from a school trip. She brought me a plastic bag with the top bind.
“I wanted mom to breathe clean air.”

[Tweet from a radio station]

We invited Fukushima children to our camp.When we sent them off,everyone couldn’t stop crying because we didn’t let them go back to Fukushima,and they didn’t want to go back to Fukushima either.
When they set off,a lot of the kids collected used bottles.”We want our parents to drink clean water that we drank.” They told us.


[Tweet from a radio station 2]

The bus arrived at the camping place to take the kids home.”Where do you want to buy your gift for your parents?” We asked.
“Not a supermarket,we want to go somewhere we can buy this local vegetables”,they said.
Elementary school kids,junior high school kids,they all wanted to give safe vegetables to their parents.

[Tweet from a radio station 3]

On the last day of our camping,a kid from Tokyo told a Fukushima kid ,”I’ll go to Fukushima to meet you next time !”. The Fukushima child turned to be serious looking and said,”No,you shouldn’t come to Fukushima.”
Fukushima children know Fukushima is where you mustn’t come,and they went back to there.


[Revealed concealment]

Fukushima dai ni was actually in the serious state on 311.
Unit 1~4 all lost the cooling system because of the Tsunami,the internal pressure of container vessel was increased rapidly.They prepared to vent for all the 4 units,but they didn’t need to release the steam after changing the pomp.
Also,Unit 5 and 6 of Dai ichi were told to be ok,but they were actually in a serious state as well.They opened holes on the top of the buildings so they could avoid hydrogen explosion.

In 311,Japanese gov told us Fukushima daini and unit 5 and 6 were all under control but they were not.

A nuc worker→hunted by The Nuclear Agency→sent to his old working place,Fukushima daini→be in charge of checking the security.

How can it be checked properly ?

[Boycott Japanese products]
Russia rejected importing Japanese car.
8/10/2011 Japanese car arrived at Russian port from Kyoyo,but each car detected 17uSv/h,which is 340 times higher than average. The cars were sent back to Japan.

[We have more cesium beef to eat]
5/26/2011,in Ichikawa shi ,Chiba,cesium beef was served for school lunch.550 students and 33 teachers ate it.

[Rice is dead]
In 80km area from Fukushima,they detected 35,000Bq/kg in a rice field.
(Answer of the gov→We will monitor it.)

[Another nuc plant might be in a trouble]
2.5uSv/h was detected in Fukui today. There is possibility that a near nuc plant,Tsuruga genpatsu
might be on fire.
This plant must have been stopped this January,but it takes time to make it stable.

[For Japanese readers]
The best webpage to know about Japanese nuc plants.
On this site,you can easily know
1)How far your place is from a nuc plant.(You can simply click on map or enter your zip code.)
2)You can tell how long the radioactive plume is likely to take to get to you.
3)You can tell the status of each nuc plant in Japan.(driving or stopped etc..)
4)You can combine the map of active fault and the nuc plant location map.
and more.

In Misatoshi ,Saitama,citizens collected petition to “ask” the local gov to conduct more radiation check,not to serve cesium beef anymore,to protect children against radiation etc..
They took a video of the meeting when they submit it and upload it online.
then local government sent them an order to delete the video from online.

[Don’t buy Japanese food]
Japanese gov has checked only 0.5% of all the beef from Fukushima.
and only 22% of the suspected cesium beef were checked by gov.

The Nuclear Agency knew meltdown was going on just after 311.
The chief,Terasaka is likely to escape by resigning by pretending to take responsibility.

[Sea pollution]
Cabinet already knows plutonium has been leaked to pacific ocean,and china syndrome is actually going on.
but they don’t take any action because it costs too much.

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.
