[Japan decides against evacuating Fukushima Prefecture residents]

Nothing less than criminal..

The Japanese government has decided to cancel the order to evacuate the residents of several populated areas in the Fukushima Prefecture that lie outside the 20km area around the crippled Fukushima-1 NPP, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano reported on Tuesday.

This decision affects 58,000 people in five municipalities and is explained by the progress achieved in clearing the aftermath of the crisis at the nuclear power plant. Edano also said that the authorities will allow residents of neighbourhoods situated within 3km from the plant to make short visits to their houses. Earlier this area was closed for everyone except rescuers.

[The truth]


Why does the government try to downplay the seriousness of the nuclear crisis? The answer is simple. It is not because of the compensation liability. It is because they are afraid that if the truth were to come out it would threaten the existence of Tokyo as Japan’s capital, it would call into question Japan’s viability as a nation, the country would suffer a disastrous loss of international confidence, and the economy would be exposed to a simultaneous “triple plunge” (in the yen’s value, stock prices and bond prices) followed by stagflation. Steep rises in food prices would cause a large number of people to starve, and Japan would be unable to recover. The government knows that the contamination from the accident is that serious, and it’s the reason they try to minimize it.

Warum unterschätzt die Regierung den Atomunfall? Die Antwort ist einfach. Die Höhe der Entschädigung ist es nicht. Wenn die Wahrheit öffentlich wird, hängt das mit den Ausgaben der Hauptstadt zusammen und mit den Ausgaben des Staates, das Vertrauen der internationalen Gemeinschaft sinkt und es kommt zu Kursstürzen und sofort zu Triple Sell off Stagflation, durch plötzliches Steigen der Lebensmittelpreise eine große Anzahl Hungernder, diese Entwicklung lässt sich nicht wieder rückgängig machen. Dem gegenüber ist die Umweltverschmutzung weniger schwerwiegend.

[Deceptive labeling]


In the case Gman is a person here the translation: Some years ago, to unmask the origin of the food, NHK broadcasted the “G-man” report in which one he testified “we got the whole results of DNA test of rise from several supermarket of Tokyo and 30~40% of rise from different origin place was found mixed”.

[Cesium rice]

First time,they detected cesium from the highest brand Koshihikari in Tochigi -> 21 bq/kg

55 bq/kg (from “Koganemochi brand”)

They will sell because the national “legal” limit is 500 bq/kg.

Ph.D. Takeda talks,we shouldn’t take more than 14 bq/kg.


SPEEDI is a computer simulating system for nuclear emergency.
They have invested 12 billion yen into it since 1986.
However,they concealed the simulation data after 311,a lot of people were exposed to radiation from Fukushima nuc plants.

but for some reason,3/14,ministry of science decided to invest more 800 million yen into the the system that nobody has / will ever use except for the purpose of golden parachute.

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.
