Radiation blowback: 10 times lethal level registered at Fukushima
Published: 28 March, 2012, 20:56
A recent examination at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant has revealed radiation levels up to ten times the fatal dose. The news alarmed thousands of people who have been living in constant fear of radiation exposure for over a year.
On Tuesday, Fukushima workers inserted a remotely controlled probe into Reactor Two to assess the damage. The device is equipped with a video camera, a thermometer, and a dosimeter – which registered radiation levels much higher than expected.
The probe also discovered that the level of cooling water in the reactor is significantly lower than expected.
The other two melted-down reactors have not yet been examined, but some fear their condition could be even worse.
Tepco officials and Japanese authorities have been repeatedly caught lying about the real situation at Fukushima. Hence many locals live in constant stress over the possibility of radiation poisoning.
Reactor 2 radiation too high for access

73 sieverts laid to low water; level will even cripple robots
By MINORU MATSUTANI
Radiation inside the reactor 2 containment vessel at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant has reached a lethal 73 sieverts per hour and any attempt to send robots in to accurately gauge the situation will require them to have greater resistance than currently available, experts said Wednesday.
Exposure to 73 sieverts for a minute would cause nausea and seven minutes would cause death within a month, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said.
The experts said the high radiation level is due to the shallow level of coolant water — 60 cm — in the containment vessel, which Tepco said in January was believed to be 4 meters deep. Tepco has only peeked inside the reactor 2 containment vessel. It has few clues as to the status of reactors 1 and 3, which also suffered meltdowns, because there is no access to their insides

CNN: Nuclear Coverup In Japan?
CNN recaps the timeline of the Fukushima nuclear disaster and how the government of Japan and TEPCO lied each step of the way.
Sadly, I still come across people who have only read or watched the initial news reports who believe there was never even any radiation released into the atmosphere from the Fukushima nuclear disaster and it is crazy to think there was a cover up.
So here are “credible” media reports that people can be referred to in the future
CNN: “They lied to us” Fukushima Radiation Release Comparable To Chernobyl, 100% Meltdown In 3 Reactors”
CNN reports “They lied to us” as Japan the Fukushima radiation release is comparable to the amount released from Chernobyl and reporting 100% nuclear meltdown has occurred in 3 reactors calling the disaster the worst industrial accident in history.
In a news report on the latest official story on the Fukushima nuclear disaster CNN and famed physicist Michio Kaku blasts Japan, TEPCO and the IAEA for covering up the truth about the nuclear disaster in Japan. This subtitle reads that it is not only the radiation still leaking out, but “The truth keeps leaking out”.
Fukushima ‘still a ticking time bomb’
[…] Famed physicist Michio Kaku says Japanese officials still don’t have control of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.
CNN: Then Fukushima. The disaster that won’t go away. Nobody is paying attention. But is the nuclear meltdown more dangerous than ever? […] Michio Kaku on the biggest industrial catastrophe in history. […]
CNN: Do they have control of the situation at that site?
Kaku: NO. It is still a ticking time bomb. Realize that after the big Sumatra tsunami, 90 days, 3 months after that there was a huge aftershock. If they have another aftershock, and they are not in cold shutdown yet until next year, the accident could start all over again. Its like hanging by your finger nails. Yeah, its stable but you are hanging by your finger nails.
CNN: Americans think this crisis is over, or some even think that it is solved or it is contained. It’s not. What’s happening right now.
Kaku: In the last two weeks, everything we knew about that accident has been turned upside down. We were told three partial melt downs, don’t worry about it. Now we know it was 100 percent core melt in all three reactors. [We were told that the] Radiation minimal that was released. Now we know it was comparable to radiation at Chernobyl. And as far as evacuation, [we were told], 12 miles and that is it. You don’t have to evacuate more than 12 miles. Now they find hotspots, 4 hot spots, outside the evacuation zone. 34,000 school children now have radiation badges when they go to school.
CNN: Kindergarteners with radiation badges.
Kaku: Down to 4 years of age. Can you imagine that? Kindergarten kids with radiation badges going to school. So all of the mythology of the accident has been turned upside down because the utility has finally fessed up to how severe this accident really was.
CNN: In your view, did they not know how bad it was or they knew and didn’t tell, or they were just completely blown away by the scope of the disaster?
Kaku: I am a physicists and we try to reconstruct the actual accidents in our computers given the feeble amount of information they gave use. We knew it was much more severe than they were saying, because radiation was coming out left and right. So in other words, they lied to us. They knew how much radiation was coming out. The knew how much core meltdown was taking place. But they tried to put a happy face on it.
CNN: As a reported within hours of the earthquake and Tsunami, with hours not even a day, there were already statements from the company and International Atomic Energy Association saying there had been safe shut down of all reactors and we know now of course in the end that simply wasn’t true. But from the very beginning they were trying to tell us that this was a safe situation.
Kaku: Within hours of the accident we now know it was like the keystone cops. People that are clueless, headless, just running around crazy, not knowing what to do. We can now reconstruct that accident minute by minute, hour by hour and we can see this chaos that erupted in the leadership ability.
CNN: What is happening to the people that are working there now.
Kaku: Well as you know workers are getting sent in and they are getting a years worth of radiation within just 10 minutes at a time. At Chernobyl 600,000 workers had to be mobilized. Each one going in for just a few minutes and each one getting a medal from Gorbachev.
CNN: This Will Be A Hundred Year Cleanup? How long with this take to cleanup in you view?
Kaku: 50 to 100 years.
CNN: And we are not there yet. We are not even to the point of talking about the cleanup yet because they haven’t stopped the reaction. It is still happening.
Kaku: Clean up hasn’t even started yet. They are not even looking at getting to cold shutdown until next year. Cold shutdown is when boiling stops. There is boiling water right there at the reactor releasing radiation into the environment and releasing radiation into gigantic vats.
CNN: How are they storing and disposing of this stuff?
Kaku: That is the killer [pun intended?] because we have all of these vats that are filling up now and they may have to dump it into the ocean again. At that point the Chinese, the Koreans, the fisherman they get up all in arms because there is so much damage [ to the reactor cores] that every time you put water [into the reactors to cool the fuel rods that are melting down] it just leaks right out again, highly radioactive, and it is filling up at the site right now.
CNN: So what do they do with it?
Kaku: Right now, they are just counting the gallons as they pile up desperately trying to bring more vats in but once they saturate they are going to have to dump and at that point it is another crisis.
CNN: Lets talk about the radiation in the environment, in the atmosphere. We have been told that it would be measurable but a miniscule amount on the US West Coast and around the world? Is that true?
Kaku: It is still minimal around the world [based on what we are being told from government reported radiation readings]. Most of the damage is concentrated within 20 to 50 miles of the reactor. That is where we have the hotspots, that is where we have 20 times normal amounts of [annual adult] radiation [limits] in school yards outside of the evacuation zone.
Kaku: But in New York City, [based off government released radiation measurements] you can actually see it in the milk. You can actually see it has iodine, 131, actually spiked a little bit in our milk in New York City, but it is very small.
CNN: Just even hearing that, though, even hearing that you can detect it, that there’s a catastrophe, the worst industrial catastrophe in history, we can see it in milk in New York, that’s frightening.
Kaku: That’s right. This could be the grand daddy of all industrial accidents topping Chernobyl at $200 billion, topping the Gulf Oil Spill at $15 billion, topping the Columbia and Challenger disasters out in space at about $10 billion. This could be the world record holder for an industrial accident.
Kaku: Realize Chernobyl was one core’s worth radiation causing a $200 billion accident and it is still on going. Here we have 20 cores worth of radiation. Three totally melted, one damaged and the [rest in] spent fuel pumps, 20 cores worth of highly radioactive materials. […]
Don’t be fooled though, it is not as if CNN or any other corporate media outlet is doing any real journalism here. Everything discussed in this video is information directly released and admitted to by TEPCO and Japan.
Throughout this disaster all the media has done is echo statements from US and Japan government officials neglecting to do any real investigative journalism reporting stories that were so blatantly false and non-nonsensical because it was the official story coming from the Government when even the common laymen could see right through the lies.
So the media has lied to us to and they still are.
Michio Kaku: Power company covered up level of nuclear contamination, and there’s a rabbit in Japan born without ears. Coincidence?
“Even worse than what Wall Street did.”
That’s how Eliot describes the cover-up by the Japanese power company and government after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. This week the government revealed that the contamination is actually twice the level they’d previously announced.
Near the reactors, a rabbit was born without ears – a genetic mutation whose cause is unclear, but “serves as a reminder and a searing symbol of the accident,” says CUNY Professor Michio Kaku, author of “Physics of the Future.”
Tepco Fukushima is reporting today China Syndrome 3/27/12
Over one year after the quake and MThs after the I.A.E.I. confirmed that the core had 10 meters of water over it they now today say less than two meters do you know what that means I DO, China syndrome
Fukushima monthly fallout higher now than 9 months ago in June
AND WHAT HAVE OUR VERY EXPENSIVE WESTERN GOVERNMENTS DONE TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE?
NOTHING BUT INTENTIONALLY LIE TO US ABOUT THE REAL SEVERITY OF THE SITUATION!!
THE DANGERS WHERE WELL UNDERSTOOD AND KNOWN. IT WAS BIG BUSINESS AND BIG GOVERNMENT THAT WANTED WMDS FACTORIES(aka URANIUM NUCLEAR REACTORS) AND NEVERMIND THE RISK TO PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY!!
On February 2, 1976, Gregory C. Minor, Richard B. Hubbard, and Dale G. Bridenbaugh “blew the whistle” on safety problems at nuclear power plants. The three engineers gained the attention of journalists and their disclosures about the threats of nuclear power had a significant impact. They timed their statements to coincide with their resignations from responsible positions in General Electric’s nuclear energy division, and later established themselves as consultants on the nuclear power industry for state governments, federal agencies, and overseas governments.
BUT POLITIONS PROTECT THE CORPORATIONS AND THIER STOCK PORTFOLIOS AND THIER LOBBY GROUP PAYMASTERS..THEY ARE A GLOBAL PUBLIC MENACE AND WORSE THAN ANY TERRORIST!!
BIG BUSINESS AND BIG GOVERNMENT INTENTIONALLY COVERED UP THE READINGS
SO THEY KNEW PERFECTLY WELL HOW MUCH RADIATION WAS LEAKING INTO THE ENVIRONMENT
THEY JUST DIDN’T WANT YOU TO KNOW…
The Mainichi daily news is reporting the chief of the Meteorological Society of Japan, Hiroshi Niino aprofessor at the University of Tokyo, is drawing strong criticism from the academic community in Japan for issuing a gag order to censor Fukushima nuclear radiation forecasts from the public. Niino justified the order to withhold the forecasts from the public by saying if “forecasts were announced, it would have carried the risk that ordinary people may panic.” Japan still has over 2,000 radiation forecasts which have not been released to the public. In related developments radiation levels in Japanese fish is still too high to lift the fishing ban and radioactive iodine along with cesium have been detected in deep seawater for the first time.
Additionally, a certain food manufacturing company conducted a survey by themselves. In a rice field is more than 50kms away from the Fukushima power plant, it was found that there was very high radiation that is very different to what the government released.
According to this food manufacturing company, they currently don’t announce these results due to the large influence* that this rice field has high concentration of plutonium.
* Note: It is not mentioned what the influence is but it implies they do not currently release the information as it may have an impact on the media/public.
Multiple 10-centimeter holes in the Reactor 2 Containment Vessel, and one 7-centimeter hole in the Reactor 1 Containment Vessel.
Hiroaki Koide of Kyoto University was so right. The Containment Vessels’ integrity has been long gone. TEPCO should have known all along, and all the experts, including Koide, must have known.
TO PROTECT THE CORPORATE ENTITY
AT THE COST OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC HEALTH!!!…..AND AT THE COST OF THE IRRADIATED TAXPAYER!!!
Japan’s TEPCO plea for debt forgiveness draws ire
TOKYO (AFP) – Japanese government remarks calling on lenders to forgive some of Tokyo Electric Power’s debt have sparked acrimony and confusion, and illustrate difficulties in addressing a nuclear crisis, say analysts.
Corporate leaders have rounded on comments from Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano that banks may have to waive some pre-quake loan terms to the operator of the Fukushima nuclear plant before it gets public help to pay compensation.
“We’d like the government to avoid making rash comments that will affect earnings and share prices before they have a clear policy,” Yasuchika Hasegawa, the newly appointed chairman of the Japan Association of Corporate Executives, said Tuesday.
Edano’s comment “was a bit extreme,” said Tsuyoshi Ueno, senior economist at NLI Research Institute.
“If banks do drop loans, they would have to expect their own ratings go down. This would inevitably affect their business performance and negatively impact the entire financial sector.”
Shares in Japan’s biggest banking groups such as Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, TEPCO’s key lender, and Mizuho Financial Group have endured volatile trade on fears they face big losses if some of TEPCO’s debts are forgiven.
Tokyo Stock Exchange President Atsushi Saito was quoted in the Nikkei business daily as saying Edano’s comments were “illogical”.
And Katsunori Nagayasu, president and chief executive of Japan’s top banking group Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group said they “came out of blue”.
He added that lenders haven’t fully assessed TEPCO’s actual financial situation, and cited the difficulty of forgiving loans under such circumstances.
TEPCO is expected to face claims worth tens of billions of dollars to pay compensation to those affected by the nuclear crisis.
More than 80,000 people who have been forced from their homes, businesses and farms in a 20-kilometre (12-mile) zone around the Fukushima Daiichi plant after it was hit by the March 11 quake-tsunami, and has since leaked radiation into the air, ground and sea.
DO NOT WORRY SAYS THE GOVERNMENT ,WE CAN HAND THE BILL TO THE TAXPAYER!!!
The government last week announced a framework for keeping TEPCO solvent that will use public and industry funds to pay compensation claims over the ongoing crisis at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
Ueno said TEPCO’s pre-quake bank loans were about 2 trillion yen ($24 billion).
JPMorgan analyst Katsuhito Sasajima calculates waiving only a portion of TEPCO’s pre-quake loan amount “would be extremely negative.”
On Monday Moody’s downgraded TEPCO to one notch above “junk” status and cited recent assessments that damage to the Fukushima Daiichi plant has been more severe than previously stated.
It added: “If the framework adopted requires creditor concessions in respect of TEPCO’s debt, such an outcome would likely constitute a default under its definitions and result in multi-notch downgrades to all long-term debt ratings.”
The firm at the centre of the world’s worst nuclear crisis in 25 years is also Japan’s largest corporate bond issuer, accounting for eight percent of the country’s 62 trillion yen ($765 billion) corporate bond market.
As Asia’s biggest power company, TEPCO supplies electricity for Tokyo and the wider Kanto region, an area that accounts for more than a third of the nation’s gross domestic product.

SO THAT IS JAPAN COMPLETELY FUKUSHIMA’D ENVIRONMENTALLY AND FINANCIALLY!!!
NO MORE TOURIST STOP OVERS TO EAT JAPANESE SUSHI AND SEAWEED …SHAME JAPAN USED TO BE A BEAUTIFUL PLACE
MEANWHILE THE GOVERNMENT WAS CAUGHT CONSPIRING WITH BIG BUSINESS AND THE MSM TO SPIN LIES TO THE PUBLIC TO PROTECT THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY(AKA WMDS DEATH INDUSTRY) AND THE STOCK MARKET AT THE EXPENSE OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY….WHAT ARE WE PAYING POLITIONS FOR AGAIN?!?!?!?!
Call for Chris Huhne to resign over Fukushima emails
Former party chief executive in Scotland says Huhne must go over ‘conspiracy’ to protect nuclear industry
Rob Edwards, written for guardian.co.uk, Friday 1 July 2011 22.03 BST
A prominent Liberal Democrat has called for Chris Huhne to resign immediately as energy and climate change secretary after emails were released detailing his officials’ efforts toco-ordinate a PR response to the Fukushima disaster with the nuclear industry. Civil servants in the energy and business departments were apparently trying to minimise the impact of the disaster on public support for nuclear power.
Andy Myles, the party’s former chief executive in Scotland, said: “This deliberate and (sadly) very effective attempt to ‘calm’ the reporting of the true story of Fukushima is a terrible betrayal of liberal values. In my view it is not acceptable that a Liberal Democrat cabinet minister presides over a department deeply involved in a blatant conspiracy designed to manipulate the truth in order to protect corporate interests”.
“These emails corroborate my own impression that there has been a strange silence in the UK following the Fukushima disaster … in the UK, new nuclear sites have been announced before the results of the Europe-wide review of nuclear safety has been completed. Today’s news strengthens the case for the government to halt new nuclear plans until an independent and transparent review has been conducted.”
Revealed: British government’s plan to play down Fukushima
Internal emails seen by Guardian show PR campaign was launched to protect UK nuclear plans after tsunami in Japan
Rob Edwards, written for guardian.co.uk, Thursday 30 June 2011 21.36 BST
British government officials approached nuclear companies to draw up a co-ordinated public relations strategy to play down the Fukushima nuclear accident just two days after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and before the extent of the radiation leak was known.
Internal emails seen by the Guardian show how the business and energy departments worked closely behind the scenes with the multinational companies EDF Energy, Areva and Westinghouse to try to ensure the accident did not derail their plans for a new generation of nuclear stations in the UK.
“This has the potential to set the nuclear industry back globally,” wrote one official at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), whose name has been redacted. “We need to ensure the anti-nuclear chaps and chapesses do not gain ground on this. We need to occupy the territory and hold it. We really need to show the safety of nuclear.”
Officials stressed the importance of preventing the incident from undermining public support for nuclear power.
THE MODERN URANIUM NUCLEAR INDUSTRY HAS BEEN A LIE FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.
IT NEVER WAS CHEAP ,CLEAN OR GREEN
IT WAS PURELY TO MANUFACTURE NUCLEAR WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION
And having been responsible for it for many, many years, I learned from experience, it wasn’t cheap, with the cost of storage of nuclear waste and the research; it isn’t safe, because Chernobyl and Three Mile Island and Windscale and so on; and it wasn’t peaceful. But all the time it was motivated by the desire to build nuclear weapons.
“Nor are Britain’s civil nuclear power stations peaceful as for many years, and still possibly today, the plutonium they produce was sent to fuel the American nuclear weapons programme, making them into – what were in effect – bomb factories.
At no stage, as a minister, could I rely on being told the truth either by the Industry itself, or by my own civil servants“
Tony Benn ex-UK Technology Minister
THAT WAS WHY BRITISH NUCLEAR FUELS WENT BUST IN THE FREE MARKET COMPETING WITH COAL AND GAS ,AFTER THE COLD WAR ENDED AND THE DEMAND FOR WMDS DROPPED!!
The United Kingdom’s response to critics of the Sellafield MOX Plant, aging nuclear reactors and plans for new reactors is becoming apparent. Following revelations that British Nuclear Fuels Ltd. (BNFL) is technically bankrupt, the government announced that a new Liabilities Management Authority is to take over its liabilities, including the Sellafield and the Magnox reactors. Critics who divulge details of nuclear security, nuclear transports or uranium enrichment will risk up to 7 years in jail under a new law. In short, it is full steam ahead for this Titanic of the industry, and the question is, which iceberg will it hit first…
Faced with revelations that one of its leading players is bankrupt, with installations described as the most dangerous in Western Europe which enable terrorists to hold the world to ransom, any normal industry would be on its knees. However, the UK’s nuclear industry is not a normal industry.
IF WE WANTED CHEAP CLEAN AND GREEN NUCLEAR REACTOR WE WOULD OFBUILT THORIUM REACTORS
BUT YOU CANNOT MAKE NUCLEAR WMDS WITH THORIUM REACTORS…SO WE DID NOT BUILD THORIUM REACTORS
Obama could kill fossil fuels overnight with a nuclear dash for thorium
If Barack Obama were to marshal America’s vast scientific and strategic resources behind a new Manhattan Project, he might reasonably hope to reinvent the global energy landscape and sketch an end to our dependence on fossil fuels within three to five years.
There is no certain bet in nuclear physics but work by Nobel laureate Carlo Rubbia at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) on the use of thorium as a cheap, clean and safe alternative to uranium in reactors may be the magic bullet we have all been hoping for, though we have barely begun to crack the potential of solar power.
Dr Rubbia says a tonne of the silvery metal – named after the Norse god of thunder, who also gave us Thor’s day or Thursday – produces as much energy as 200 tonnes of uranium, or 3,500,000 tonnes of coal. A mere fistful would light London for a week.
Thorium eats its own hazardous waste. It can even scavenge the plutonium left by uranium reactors, acting as an eco-cleaner. “It’s the Big One,” said Kirk Sorensen, a former NASA rocket engineer and now chief nuclear technologist at Teledyne Brown Engineering.
“Once you start looking more closely, it blows your mind away. You can run civilisation on thorium for hundreds of thousands of years, and it’s essentially free. You don’t have to deal with uranium cartels,” he said.
ITS COMMONLY AND EASILY AVAILABLE
Thorium is so common that miners treat it as a nuisance, a radioactive by-product if they try to dig up rare earth metals. The US and Australia are full of the stuff. So are the granite rocks of Cornwall. You do not need much: all is potentially usable as fuel, compared to just 0.7pc for uranium.
WE HAVE KNOWN OF THORIUM SINCE THE 1940’s BUT THE WEST JUST WANTED TO MAKE NUCLEAR WEAPONS
After the Manhattan Project, US physicists in the late 1940s were tempted by thorium for use in civil reactors. It has a higher neutron yield per neutron absorbed. It does not require isotope separation, a big cost saving. But by then America needed the plutonium residue from uranium to build bombs.
“They were really going after the weapons,” said Professor Egil Lillestol, a world authority on the thorium fuel-cycle at CERN. “It is almost impossible make nuclear weapons out of thorium because it is too difficult to handle. It wouldn’t be worth trying.” It emits too many high gamma rays.
You might have thought that thorium reactors were the answer to every dream but when CERN went to the European Commission for development funds in 1999-2000,they were rebuffed.
Brussels turned to its technical experts, who happened to be French because the French dominate the EU’s nuclear industry. “They didn’t want competition because they had made a huge investment in the old technology,” he said.
Another decade was lost. It was a sad triumph of vested interests over scientific progress. “We have very little time to waste because the world is running out of fossil fuels. Renewables can’t replace them. Nuclear fusion is not going work for a century, if ever,” he said.
THANKS TO OUR POLITIONS OUR FUTURE LOOKS BLEEK AND CANCEROUS!!
OUR POLITIONS PROMISED US CHEAP AND CLEAN AND GREEN ELECTRICITY …INSTEAD WE HAVE ALL BEEN COMPLETED FUKUSHIMA’D
YOUR GOVERNMENT REPRESENTATIVE IN ACTION
QUITE HAPPY TO LET YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR CHILDRENS CHILDREN DIE SLOW AND PAINFUL CANCEROUS DEATHS, WHILE THEY MAKE PERSONAL PROFIT AND PROTECT THE GUILTY
REMEMBER PEOPLE DON’T THINK THIS COULD NEVER HAPPEN TO YOU!!
THERE ARE PLENTY OF VERY SIMILAR UNRANIUM NUCLEAR REACTORS DOTTED ALL OVER EUROPE AND AMERICA. THEY ARE IN VARIOUS STATES OF ILL REPAIR AND IN THIS TIME OF AUSTERITY MEASURES ,THEY ARE NOT LIKELY TO GET A GOOD UPGRADE!!
THIS IS A TICKING BOMB….AND THIS BOMB IS NUCLEAR!!
MEANWHILE A SUGGESTION FOR WHAT TO GET TEPCO MANAGEMENT AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS FOR CHRISTMAS!!!
