[Reader’s post] English report shows smaller radiation levels → Tepco “Merely a simple mistake”

On 7/25/2013, Fukushima Diary reported English radiation survey map shows radiation levels by taking down a figure one place [URL]

A Fukushima Diary reader gave a query to Tepco about this issue and Tepco replied “It’s merely a simple mistake.”.

They have been showing the smaller figures only in the English reports since this April.

They have made the same simple mistakes for 4 times only about the readings over 1 mSv/h.




Truth is not truth because everyone believes in it. It’s the truth because it’s consistent and can’t be rebutted.

[Message de lecteur] Les rapports en anglais présentent des niveaux de radioactivité minimisés → Tepco : “Ce n’est qu’une simple erreur”


Le 25 juillet 2013, le Fukushima Diary publiait “La version anglaise de carte de surveillance de la radioactivité affiche par endroits des niveau minimisés

Un lecteur du Fukushima Diary a posé la question à Tepco sur ce problème et Tepco a répondu “Ce n’est qu’une simple erreur.”.

Ils ne publient des schémas à valeurs minimisées que dans les rapports en anglais et depuis avril dernier.
Ils ont fait la même “simple erreur” 4 fois de suite et uniquement sur les relevés supérieurs à 1 mSv/h.


Ce n’est pas la vérité parce que tout le monde y croit. C’est la vérité parce que c’est cohérent et irréfutable.

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.
