Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.

  1. you are doing a well job! In Europe, spes. Germany – there are hardly news on TV. We talk about Ben Bernanke and his Moneyprint and nowerdays about germanys-four-year termed voting this tomorow.

    The biggest fear over here about fukushima here is, NOVEMBER. Of course many people here dont understand, that Tokio is going to carry out the summergames 2020 – We have expearianced Tchernobyl in sev. places in southgermany or in sweden you cant eat wild meat out of the forests.
    Tchernobyl is still poluting the water, rivers and lakes in Bela-Rusia. But Their Gouverment is Europes last diktator – yot get no news from there.

    I think the next blowup will either be in Japan again – or in France. People here will go mad if it happens in france. They would need the army to calm people down.

  2. Although we may never know if this really happened the way it’s described I can believe it is a true story since TEPCO’s denials & accounting of issues & incidents is ALWAYS based on lies & misinformation-the international nuke industry “standard operating procedure”by the way(?)!! So here is the legacy of yet another unsung hero’s tale describing yet another selfless act undertaken by someone putting themselves in harm’s way to try to keep others from the same fate he will undoubtedly suffer in an expedited timeframe re;the onset of radiation damage to life we are ALL going to see & experience in up-close & personal ways sooner or later,maybe a little bit later thanks to his actions while shielded with a yellow rubber raincoat not unlike that being worn by Japanese & downwinder’s schoolchildren walking from contaminated homes down contaminated streets to contaminated schools hoping they live to see their (even more)contaminated futures! 🙁 This underpaid TEPCO contractor in Tyvek & a raincoat did more for TEPGOV’s victims in an hour with a spanner wrench than the scoundrels responsible who are draining the health,wealth & vitality from their victim/tax-ratepayer’s in the whole 2 1/2 years they’ve incompetently mis-managed the ongoing,ever-escalating nuclear crisis they now profit from!! And it’s sickening…….

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.
