NRA “won’t allow Tepco to restart another nuclear plant until they get to control Fukushima plant situation”

Note : If you are from the international mass media, Don’t read this site before taking a contact with me.


On 11/6/2013, the chairman of NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority) Tanaka stated they won’t start the review for the restart of K.K. (Kashiwazaki-Kariwa) nuclear plant until they confirm Tepco got to take the control over Fukushima situation, which is convincing enough for Japanese people.

Having been financially limited, Tepco is forced to raise the power rates unless they can restart K.K. nuclear plant.

Tanaka commented Fukushima plant is full of problems, which Japanese people are the most concerned about. Unless Tepco shows the solution to convince people, NRA cannot publish the permission no matter how long it takes.

I reject the international mass media to read this site without taking a contact with me.I know some of the mass media corporations read Fukushima Diary to understand the trend so they know when to report about Fukushima as if they were independently following it for a long time.
In short, they make you individual readers pay for this site while they pay nothing, and when they publish the “authorized news”, you pay for the “secondhand news”, which is nothing new for us.
This site is free for the individual readers, but not for corporations.In the world, this site is nearly the only source about Fukushima. I came here alone without any supporting organizations, background or anything. I’m not pleased to be exploited by the corporations that didn’t even properly report about Fukushima when 311 took place. I demand them to take a contact with me BEFORE reading this site whatever the purpose is.

La NRA : “on ne permettra pas à Tepco de redémarrer une autre centrale nucléaire tant qu’ils ne contrôleront pas la situation dans la centrale de Fukushima”
Note : Si vous êtes de la grande presse internationale, ne lisez pas ce site sans avoir préalablement pris contact avec moi.


Le 6 novembre 2013, le président de la NRA (Nuclear Regulation Authority), M. Tanaka, a affirmé qu’ils ne commenceront pas le ré-examen du démarrage de la centrale nucléaire de K.K. (Kashiwazaki-Kariwa) tant qu’ils ne pourront pas confirmer que Tepco a repris le controle de la situation à Fukushima, ce qui suffit à convaincre beaucoup de japonais.
Tepco doit augmenter ses tarifs d’électricité sauf s’ils peuvent redémarrer la centrale nucléaire de K.K. parce qu’ils ont subi des restrictions financières.
M. Tanaka a déclaré que le fait que la centrale de Fukushima soit bourrée de problèmes est ce qui inquiète le plus les japonais. Tant que Tepco ne présentera pas une solution convaincante pour les gens, la NRA ne pourra pas accorder cette permission quel que soit le temps que ça prenne.

J’interdis à la grande presse internationale de lire et d’utiliser ce site sans préalablement prendre contact avec moi. Je sais que certaines grandes sociétés de presse lisent le Fukushima Diary pour comprendre la tendance et trouver quand rendre compte de la situation de Fukushima comme s’ils la suivaient indépendamment depuis longtemps.
En résumé, ils vous font payer à vous, simples lecteurs, ce qu’ils prennent gratuitement dans ce site et lorsqu’ils publient des “nouvelles de première main” vous payez pour des “nouvelles resucées”, qui n’ont rien de nouveau pour nous.
Ce site est gratuit pour les lecteurs individuels, pas pour les sociétés. Ce site est pratiquement la seule source au monde sur Fukushima. Je viens ici seul sans aucun soutien d’organisation quelconque, ni références, ni rien. Je n’apprécie pas de me faire exploiter par ces sociétés qui n’ont même pas été foutues de relater correctement ce qui se passait à Fukushima quand a eu lieu le mois de mars 2011. Je leur demande de prendre contact avec moi AVANT de lire ce site dans quelque but que ce soit.

    In my book Fukushima, the Death Knell for Nuclear Energy? (2012), I make the point that “most people expect that the people who work in running nuclear power plants are well trained and very competent. Hiroko Tabuchi of The New York Times interviewed a Mr Ishizawa who was one of the thousands of untrained people who handled much of the dangerous work at Fukushima. He is not a specialist nor is he an employees of Tepco. Even something as rudimentary as proper clothing was not available to the majority of workers. While all the workers did have respirators, the majority wore only orange boiler suits. “Only a few of the management team wore the proper lead-lined ‘Noddly suits.’ Those in the front line of danger had only disposable overalls made of Tyvek, an artificial, non-rip fibre”

    The response of the Japanese government to the on-going saga at Fukushima has also been shambolic. On December 27, 2011, the Japanese government told Tepco to consider ceding control of the company to the Japanese government in exchange for much-needed funds to deal with the fallout from the accident. Two-and-a-half years later the Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters that, “the government has stayed in the background and extended support for Tokyo Electric’s effort to tackle the problem of contaminated water. But we’ve now decided that Tokyo Electric’s patchwork response has reached its limits, and the government needs to come forward and quickly respond , even by using budget reserves.” The Chairman of the new Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) Shunichi Tanaka told reporters that “the people at the Fukushima plant have been dealing with the post-accident situation with haphazard, stop-gap measures for several years.”

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.
