Sorry for the low voice. I didn’t want to wake up the host family.
Thank you very much for donation.
I’m surprised at receiving them. Probably I can cover the server cost this month.
I saw one of the people donated from Japan, and it’s Chiba.
I strongly recommend you to evacuate if you haven’t yet.
Today, on my radio interview, I was asked what I think about someone who decided to stay in Japan and fight.
Honestly speaking, that’s meaningless. Just get out, and fight.
You have the internet. You can fight anywhere you go.
and if you stay in Japan, you’ll be sick worse and worse. At least radiation is not something to fight.
Now it’s almost 11 months. Some people are used to Geiger counter and think they know everything about radiation. but I think that’s very dangerous.
It takes ages to measure beta ray and geiger counter does not tell you the nuclide.
and the problem is not the “ray”. It’s the particle that you may breathe.
Most importantly, no matter how much you measure, radiation doesn’t decrease.
The concrete fact is, people died in Chernobyl. You will die if you are in Japan.
The summery of today’s news is,
reactor 2 is serious. On Second of February, it was 52 ℃. At 4 PM of Fifth in February, it’s already 71.7 ℃.
Tepco is supposed to give warning to local governments if it goes higher than 80, but you can never trust them.
They analyze it might be because something, maybe some debris changed or moved in the container vessel and the water doesn’t get to the melted fuel anymore. That’s pretty likely.
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.
