[Column] The reason why I like nuclear

[Column] The reason why I like nuclear


I’m aware that I’m walking on the thin line.
Some people kindly appreciate my work, but some people really hate me whatever the reason is.

About 3 or 4 months ago, I noticed Fukushima Diary was removed from the thumbnail of my browser Chrome.
Chrome shows the “frequently accessing site” on the front page. I access Fukushima-Diary.com for 24/7 but it seems not frequent enough.
On 7/21/2013, two more site were removed, they were the realtime radiation monitoring data by Nuclear Regulation Authority and Tepco.
Kitten sites only remained. Chrome doesn’t like nuclear related sites whichever it is pro or anti.

I don’t know if Google did something for it. Some people might have filed reports as a shifty program publisher or something. but I have a problem to share my own article by google+ for these couple of months and Google analytics is acting strange. It shows completely different stats from other web statistic services.

Apart from the tiny matters, Tepco officially admitted the contaminated groundwater is flowing to the sea.
Nobody didn’t know that, but I can’t help questioning why now ?
Tepco states it has been since this May. As always, it’s has no basis. It is natural to think it’s been flowing to the sea since day zero.
What makes me shiver is the “possibility” that the contaminated groundwater flows to “underground” of the sea.
Like China syndrome, we can’t know what it may cause. Most part of Fukushima plant port has the bottom covered with chemical material, so the sinking radiation may come up somewhere out of the port somehow. It’s beyond imagination.
So far, Tepco hasn’t identified where the contamination is from. They can’t even stop it for a while, or until they decommission the plant in a half century.

The press conference of Tepco last for 4 hours today. After turning off the screen, the accountant of Fukushima Diary corporation called me.
She told me there is the severe deficit. In total, it’s minus 3,800 € since this January, which makes it difficult for me to renew my visa if I don’t clear it by this September.
I have been trying to cut off the expense but the lawyer cost was overwhelming. It’s out of my control.

Tepco pays 500 million yen to their management class employees to “adjust” their salary.
The world greatest contaminator is better paid. This is why I like nuclear power.



Don’t be their accomplice.

[Column] The reason why I like nuclear


Je sais que je marche le long de la ligne rouge.
Certains apprécient gentiment mon travail mais d’autres me haïssent pour différentes raisons.

Il y a 3 ou 4 mois environ, j’avais remarqué que le Fukushima Diary avait été retiré des miniatures de mon navigateur Chrome.
Chrome présente les “sites fréquemment visités” sur sa première page. Je vais sur Fukushima-Diary.com 24/7 mais il semble que ce ne soit pas assez fréquent.
Le 21 juillet 2013, deux autres sites ont été effacés, il s’agit de ceux vers les données temps réel de surveillance de la radioactivité par la Nuclear Regulation Authority et de Tepco.
Les sites sur les chatons sont les seuls à rester. Chrome n’aime pas les sites liés au nucléaire, que l’on soit pour ou contre.

Je ne sais pas si Google a fait quelque chose pour ça. Certains peuvent avoir rempli des rapports comme des dénonciations de programmes furtifs ou autre mais j’ai des problèmes pour partager mes propres articles avec google+ depuis ces deux derniers mois et Google analytics se comporte de façon étrange. Il montre des stats complètement différentes des autres services web de statistiques.

Ces petites choses mises à part, Tepco a officiellement reconnu que les eaux souterraines extrêmement radioactives s’écoulent en mer. Personne ne le savait mais je ne peux pas expliquer pourquoi ça n’arrive que maintenant. Tepco affirme que ça dure depuis le mois de mai. Comme toujours, c’est sans fondement. Il est logique de penser que c’est comme ça depuis le tout premier jour. Ce qui me fait trembler c’est la “possibilité” que les eaux souterraines extrêmement radioactives s’écoulent dans “le sous-sol” de la mer.

Comme dans le syndrome chinois, on ne peut pas savoir ce qui le provoque. L’essentiel du fond du port de la centrale de Fukushima est couvert de matériaux chimiques, donc la radioactivité qui coule peut remonter n’importe où en dehors du port. Ça dépasse l’imagination. Pour l’instant, Tepco n’a pas trouvé d’où provient cette contamination. Ils ne peuvent pas l’arrêter même pour un instant tant que le démantèlement n’est pas terminé, dans un demi-siècle.

La conférence de presse de Tepco d’aujourd’hui a duré 4 heures. Après avoir éteint l’écran, la comptable de l’entreprise Fukushima Diary m’a appelé. Elle m’a dit qu’il y avait un déficit grave. Au total, on en est à moins 3 800 € depuis janvier ce qui peut provoquer des problèmes pour le renouvellement de mon visa si je ne régularise pas d’ici septembre prochain.
J’ai essayé de réduire les dépenses mais le coût de l’avocat a été impressionnant. C’est hors de mon contrôle.

Tepco paye 500 millions de yens à ses employés de la catégorie gestion  pour “”ajuster” leurs salaires.
Le plus grand contaminateur du monde est mieux payé. C’est pour ça que j’aime l’énergie nucléaire.


Ne soyez pas leurs complices.

  1. Nobodies is ever mentioning anything releated to the water table getting contaminated. I think, not sure, that about half of the population of Japan gets their drinking water from the water table that fukushima daiichi sits on top of. Is not that water table only a short distance below, like only 50 meter down?

  2. Disabled IP6 services on my machine, not the IP6 firewall though.
    Now many Goggle services are not available to me. Wiki’s gone, youtube impossible, support.mozilla.com won’t resolve. Exskf won’t show either. Many people’s avatars on enenews simply do not show. If i try to use enenews goggle-feed at the bottom of their page for fuku’d-diary, it won’t show either. At least i can still visit this site directly.

    I postulate that some of those aforementioned sites might be IP6 only now.

    IP4 allowed one to resolve a IP address to within a city, at least.
    IP6 can resolve a lot closer to home. It can also tunnel through IP4 networks including older “non-compliant” devices.

    Of course these are anecdotal notes based upon conjecture and circumstantial info. I do not know all of the facts.

    At least we’ve always known the interweb’s origin.

    It would seem Kawaii is immune.
    Those that hate you might be immune to Kawaii.

    1. My mistake.

      I set up a new install of XP, which of course has no IPv6 capability.
      Low and behold, https://google.encrypted.com worked fine. I assume the remainder do as well.

      It is a relief that i did qualify those observations as preliminary, as not knowing all the facts (which i still don’t). Just another reminder that i have to further test my presuppositions before hastily jockeying my keyboard.

      I apologize.

  3. dialogue taken from “The Devil’s Advocate” (1997)
    Kevin Lomax = Keanu Reeves
    John Milton = Al Pachino

    Kevin Lomax: Why the law? Cut the shit, Dad! Why the lawyers? Why the law?
    John Milton: Because the law, my boy, puts us into everything. It’s the ultimate backstage pass. It’s the new priesthood, baby. Did you know there are more students in law school than lawyers walking the Earth?
    Kevin Lomax: You made me do it!
    John Milton: No, I don’t work that way, Kevin.

    Kevin Lomax: What do you want from me?
    John Milton: I want you to be yourself. You know, I’ll tell you, boy. Guilt – it’s like a bag of fuckin’ bricks. All you gotta do is set it down….Who are you carrying all those bricks for anyway? God? Is that it? God? Well, I tell ya, let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He’s a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do? I swear, for His own amusement, His own private cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It’s the goof of all time. Look, but don’t touch. Touch, but don’t taste. Taste, don’t swallow. Aha ha ha. And while you’re jumpin’ from one foot to the next, what is He doin’? He’s laughin’ His sick, fuckin’ ass off. He’s a tight-ass. He’s a sadist. He’s an absentee landlord. Worship that? Never!

    Kevin Lomax: “Better to reign in Hell, than to serve in Heaven,” is that it?
    John Milton: Why not? I’m here on the ground with my nose in it since the whole thing began! I’ve nurtured every sensation man has been inspired to have! I cared about what he wanted and I never judged him. Why? Because I never rejected him, in spite of all his imperfections! I’m a fan of man! I’m a humanist. Maybe the last humanist. Who, in their right mind, Kevin, could possibly deny the 20th century was entirely mine? All of it, Kevin! All of it! Mine! I’m peaking, Kevin. It’s my time now. It’s our time.

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.
