When I talk to my dad, he didn’t evaluate this Fukushima Diary at all and asked me why no other “professional” journalist do the same thing as me, to make me feel like I’m nothing.
That was annoying but actually has a point.
I don’t know any other websites to focus on Fukushima. There are some sites but they mostly refer to official information, such as NHK English or Yomiuri English, which are full of bullshit.
As far as I know the Alpha Sources are just: Enenews, Ex-SKF, and Fukushima Diary.
Ex-SKF is “annoying” because it’s a good blog. lol They often have news before Fukushima Diary posts.
But I think competing is a good thing and when we both feature the same news, it proves that is true.
I can’t understand why they block me to follow their twitter account though. lol
When I see Enenews refer to the articles from Fukushima Diary, I’m happy. lol
But these are only the website I know.
Do you know anything else?
This is strange actually.
I’m nothing in Japan. In “Japanese blog industry” I’m nobody. No one knows me. I actually don’t scoop. I don’t know why they don’t come out of Japan.
Anyway, this blog is to let you know when to escape. All along the watchtower.
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.
