I receive a lot of comments, advice and information everyday. Some people even offer me helps for my activity, but honestly I don’t have time to read and think about them all carefully. I’m trying but I’m being too occupied.
I spend 8 or 10 hours on researching and making articles everyday. and I have to think about visa, money, and when I’m moving like from Paris to Tunisia or Romania, I can’t even check the news. After one day blank, I’ll have to be online for about 12 hours to catch up with all the news. and most of the time, when I arrive at a new place, I need 1 or 2 days to get secured internet line so the blank time gets longer. The only exception was Romania. I got the perfect internet condition form the first day.
I want to cover more issues, faster but I don’t know how to do that. Though I receive lots of offers for help but I have no idea how to organize and realize it. I’m being like a posting machine.
I heard some people are worried about me because Fukushima Diary doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. but this is what is actually going on.
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.
