Minamisoma blogger “The heating gauge is not broken at reactor2”

The Minamisoma blogger wrote about reactor 2.

She comments reactor2 is actually being heated.


「 作業員 さん 」 と 「 (元)作業員 さん 」 に、電話で確認をした。

Now I talked on the phone with a nuclear worker and a former nuclear worker.

「 600~700 ℃ になれば、【 2号機 】 も、爆発を免れない 」 というものだった。

In short, if it goes up to 600~700℃, reactor 2 will explode.

「 300℃ 以上に 温度が 上昇した 」 と、

News said the heating gauge showed over 300℃.


However, reactor 2 is not under control.

「 2号機の爆発 」 自体が恐ろしいのではない。
それよりも ・・・

What we must worry about is not the explosion of reactor2.
【 このまま、
温度上昇が進み、600~700℃ になって 爆発し、連動的に、
1号機 ~ 4号機 まで、吹き飛ぶことの方が 心配だ 】 と 「 作業員 さん 」 は 語る。

The Fukushima worker talked, if reactor2 keeps being heated, it gets exploded and it will cause explosion of reactor 1, 3 and 4.

「 現場の資格 」 を たくさん持っていた 「 作業員 さん 」が、
『 辞めたい 』 と、東電幹部に 言ったところ、
取り合ってさえ もらえなかった。

The former Fukushima worker had lots of license as an engineer.
He told the managers that he wants to quit but they didn’t even listen to him.

幹部連中を呼んで、その 「 作業員 さん 」 を、取り囲んだという。

Moreover, the manager called other managers and tried to persuade him.

【 160万円 の 札束 】 を テーブルの上に放り投げ、
仕事を続ろと 言った。

They put 1.6 million yen on the table and said get back to work.

その 「 作業員 さん 」 は、受け取らずに、きっぱりと断った。

He didn’t take it and said no.

「 おまえ、まだ若いんだから、辞めたっていいんだ 」 と 言ってくれた。

One of the managers was still sane, said if you want to quit, just leave, you are still young.

その 「 辞めてもいい 」 と、口添えしてくれた幹部の方は、

He was fired immediately after that.

その日まで 働いた 「 お給料 」 さえ、出なかった。

The former worker wasn’t even paid for the last month.

【 明日から、来なくていい ! 】 という暴言だけだった。

The managers only said to him, don’t need to come back as of tomorrow.

手取りで 「 18万円 」 の お給料だった。

His monthly salary was only 180,000JPY after tax.


They are not paid much as people think.

作業中に死亡した 「 作業員 さん たち 」 は、200人ほどに のぼった。

From April to June, 200 workers died in total.

防毒マスクを 取り替えるのを忘れていたり ・・・ 要因は さまざまだった。

They died for various reasons such as forgetting to change the filter of the mask etc..

休憩中に 煙草をいっぷくして ・・・

In a break time, they smoked,

「 そろそろ、いくか 」 と、立ち上がって、

stood up to get back to work,

座ったままの 彼に 声をかけたら、亡くなっていた。

found someone still sitting and said hello to find him dead..


but those people are not sent back to the families.


Because the dead bodies are too irradiated.

セメントに詰められて、J ヴィレッチ へ運ばれ ・・・
どのように 扱われたかは、誰も知らない。

Put in concrete, sent to J-village, and no one knows how they are treated after that.

2号機の 温度上昇を食い止めるために、

They are working to death to stop reactor2 getting heated more.

【 死者への冒涜 】

こんなことが、あっていいはずがない !

We must respect dead man..


  1. No problem.

    Need another means to infer ‘temperature’ in these conditions rather than thermometer.

    Perhaps, pump a known velocity of inert gas into the pressure vessel and measure velocity on the outflow, thereby determining gas expansion while inside.

    This velocity measurement would infer temperatures by the expansion of the inert gas. Inert gas is subject to ‘Charles’s law’ by operating a simple calculation of “V1T2=V2T1.”

    A device constructed of a sealed tantalum probe tube with a smaller diameter internal tantalum tube suppling a velocity of inert gas. Measure differential of inlet and outlet through a ‘curved tube coriolis flow meters’ on the inlet side and another mass flow meter on the outlet side.

    An accurate temperature reading is calculated by “V1T2=V2T1” inferred through velocity change.

    By modulating the flow rates a system entropy loss diagram can be built. for this specific alternative temperature measuring system.


    So, why is everybody being so stupid?

    Am I the world’s smartest man?

    If so, we are all in a lot of trouble.

    Looking for work, tired of freezing my petunias off to pay my mortgage. Any offers? Resume is flying, now just looking for a target. Pay someone to hack my email address, it’s o.k.

    1. This might be an opportunity if Fukushima exploded in one way or another.
      The truth about this accident could no longer be hidden.
      Very often, you must arrive at the height of a crisis that, at last, we can treat it effectively. Before we tinker. And when the leaders are corrupt, they tinker tragically.
      Here in France, Fukushima is an ended story.
      We have to much interests in nuclear market.

  2. the water temperature is of little consequense aside from when it is above boiling (which means steam rather than water and potential for exposed rods). once the rods are exposed, the real problems start happening when they (not the water) heat up to 1200 degrees. the zirconium separates from the corium and you begin to get a Hydrogen gas buildup. as soon as there is oxygen, kaboom deflagration. rapid oxidation of pressurized hydrogen gas can blow that containment vessel six ways from sunday. everyone should have gas masks just in case.

    we are not looking at the same kind of release as the first one though. the levels of I131 and Xe etc will be trace. Pu will be along the lines of the reactor 1 blow out and Sr/Cs will be like 1 or 3 depending on the size of the explosion. if that thermometer is not broken, as long as they have the power on, they can (and probably will) vent the containment, letting tons of toxic shit into the air rather than risk another publicity move like the last two pops. if that “broken” thermometer approaches levels where they begin to worry about the rods remaining intact with the zircaloy i think they will cut loose a massive radio toxic fart.
    and repeat the process until it gets more “under control”… or they decided that 1 and 3 are easier to deal with since they are already depressurized and wanna give it a go on number 2…

  3. Following reading of this publication, I just got the following otherworldly Message :


    I hope this warning will save lives.
    Blessings to you !

  4. What are the up to date readings of the other two thermal probes from a few days ago to real-time? Is there data online anywhere as to what they were/are reading during the extremely high temps of the one?

  5. People are sacrificing their lives because of this disaster and some leaders still want to continue nuclear power?! And for what? Money? Short-term convenience? The environment? Nuclear weapons? We should have learned after Chernobyl. How many more lives will need to be lost before humans learn our lesson.

  6. Expert: M7.0 quake can cause Spent Fuel Pool No. 4 to collapse — New study warns fault nearby Daiichi plant ‘ripped open’ on 3/11; 70% chance of big quake this year
    Japan’s crippled nuclear plant at Fukushima needs to beef up safety measures to face the risk of a large earthquake­, scientists said on Tuesday.

    The alarm was sounded by a trio of seismologi­sts in Japan and China […]

    The picture points to a low-activi­ty fault that was jolted furiously into life by the big quake. […]

    The seismic tomography also says that after March 11, the Iwaki fault suffered a dramatic change in the direction of stress from the overriding Okhotsk plate.

    A shock change in horizontal thrust, helped by the weakening effect of the ascending fluids, are what made this previously untroubles­ome fault to rip open, they theorise. […]

  7. What is wrong with this “Picture”?

    1. Tepco is one the “GANGS” that runs Japan.
    2. What is good for TEPCO is good for Japan.
    3. The Japanese people MUST OBEY TEPCO for the “GOOD” of the Country.
    4. The financial health of TEPCO is more important than the physical health,
    … of the Japanese People and all their FUTURE children!
    5. Only TEPCO knows what is best, all others must BOW to TEPCO’s Rule.
    Japan is now a majority TEPCO Stock Owner, where is their TEPCO Board seat and who is asking questions and demanding answers for all those in Tokyo receiving TEPCO’s radioactiv­­e fallout?

    1. It’s not just Tepco. It’s IAEA, it’s America, it’s England, it’s France. They are all tied up.

      1. YES, I agree, that is why I coined the word Nuclear Fascist*…
        *Nuclear Fascism

        We are now are being ruled by those in Nuclear Denial*; instead of by Leaders that demand an end to the Trillion Dollar Eco-Disast­er RISK that Nuclear poses to mankind! The nuclear industry is fighting tooth and nail to maintain it’s market share; yet NOW Solar (of all flavors) is far less costly to construct, faster to construct and carries with it N☢ Nuclear radioactiv­e baggage that can kill a Countries economy and or those living nearby!
        Ask The Japanese!

        *Nuclear Denial
        The illogical belief that Nature cannot destroy any land based nuclear reactor, any place anytime 24/7/365!

  8. Why would they build a plant the size of this one (that has earned tepco a great deal of money) and not shell out 20 or 30 grand for a full compliment of detectors, in the first days of the fiasco they were stating that they did not have detectors that read high enough! No way to detect neutrons at all. Seems to me if an astronaut in a nasa vehicle cannot leave the ground unless there are two-thousand redundancies to protect one to seven people, that a plant with a potential mass killing of an entire country that the same redundancies would be employed.
    Sorry to say I am not anti nuclear there is a lot we can benefit from from the atom, however generating power and piling up thousands of tons of the most deadly poison on earth is just stupid.
    This is far from over, in fact its just the beginning.

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.
