Thank you for your support as always. I’m sorry for wasting your money on such a “aroma candle” thingy. lol
I’m a little tired from all the confusion about the SFP4. I’m still suspicious that they really settled it down. In the press conference in the evening on 4/13, they didn’t even announce the actual temperature of SFP, only said the temperature of the surface.
About my last column of Why charity doesn’t work for Japanese, I would like you to know I wasn’t meant to say charity is wasteful. No, never. I wanted everyone to think about it with me because I don’t know how to take them out either.
Now people are starting to notice evacuation is the only way to survive, and some people are irritated at Japanese still sticking to Japan.
They have a thought.. why ? why they don’t want to escape ? Do they want to die or are they idiot ? People outside try to guess but they sometimes get to the easy conclusion of “spiritualism”. They end up thinking, it’s because Japanese is like robot, which is because they are stupid, which is because they are lazy.. but this doesn’t solve anything. Even if you tell it to Japanese, “You are lazy and stupid”, Japanese will get even more stubborn. We must dig it deeper. “Spiritualism” is a trap of thought.
This is why I’m trying to imagine how it is working in Japanese mind, and I know I shouldn’t blame them too much. Japanese culture sure has a lot of flaws, just like all the other cultures. We shouldn’t bring up another useless fight. It stresses us as well.
I think we won’t know what is the correct answer. We can just repeat trial and error. However, one thing sure is, getting irritated at Japanese who don’t evacuate is not the answer.
However, I can’t take it that children are left dying. They don’t know anything, trust their parents and teachers 100% to eat what they’re served. There are a lot of news about contaminated school lunch. Every time I read those news and imagine how the children ate it, I feel like crying. If it’s only one time for them to eat mushroom of 1000Bq/Kg, it might not be so harmful, but it can’t be only mushroom to be contaminated. Sea weed, milk, meat, everything is contaminated, everyday. Those news only focus on one part of the entire situation. This is the worst child abuse.
If you hear your neighbor beating their children everyday, probably you will kick on the door and save the children. Now should we do that or not.. This is what’s giving me a headache.
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.
