Tepco: We should have told public this sooner… we failed to cool molten fuel after meltdowns began — Experts: Fukushima cesium release could be more than triple Chernobyl

Asahi Shimbun, Dec. 14, 2013: Fire engines were used in a desperate, and ultimately futile, attempt to pump water to cool overheating reactors during the early phase of the 2011 Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant disaster, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said. According to a Dec. 13 report by the operator of the crippled facility, water was pumped in sufficient quantity to avert core meltdowns in the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 reactors, but much of it strayed into irrelevant pipes and ended up elsewhere. […] water failed to cool it and the other reactors efficiently, and could not stop the core meltdowns in the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 reactors. […] TEPCO officials said they knew as early as late March 2011 […] “We should have shared the finding with the public in the belief it would help promote universal safety, but failed to do so,” said [a] TEPCO Managing Executive Officer […]  

Estimate of Consequences from the Fukushima Disaster, Nordic PSA Conference (nuclear utilities in Finland and Sweden), September 2011: Estimate of releases from aerial survey […] The National Nuclear Security Administration NNSA (USDOE) has published an aerial map of projected one year doses from contamination. […] The assessment takes into account symmetrical deposition on the ocean, weather patterns […] a correction for the remainder of activity in the cloud beyond 100 km, and a further correction for continuous low level releases for the rest of the time that it will take TEPCO to stop them […] which gives the final assumption for Cs137 release of 2.85 E+17 Bq […] it could be assumed that the results obtained with this method can be interpreted as an upper bound of all estimates. […]Table 6 Comparison of estimates of releases

  • Chernobyl 8.5E16 (85 quadrillion Bq of cesium-137)
  • Estimate from USDOE aerial survey 2.9E17 (285 quadrillion Bq of cesium-137)

  1. This web site has been put together mostly with FOIA requests. According to this, they lost 1, 2, 3 and 4’s pool which held spent and unspent fuel rods.
    In other words all the garbage about trying to remove the rods from pool 4 is smoke and mirrors. We’ve been getting nuked since the first week. The worst has happened.
    Let me know if anyone can glean brighter news from this or if I’m just plain wrong.

    Meantime in Australia:
    7 December 2013 burst tank at the Ranger uranium mine that released up to one million litres of radioactive acid slurry beyond the containment area of the holding tanks endangering Kakadu National Park.

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why they haven’t told us. Everything on the planet was hit by Chernobyl. Fukushima makes that look like child’s play.
    Peace, Love and Molon Labe!

      1. Jim Stone’s articles are confusing. He seems to say that there is nothing to worry about while he points fingers at who could have been involved in creating a false flag. Most of his references point straight back to himself. At best I found hint and allegations. Have you considered he is a disinfo agent?

        Interesting that the web site is registered to James “Smith” of Saudi Arabia, with the web site name presented as James Stone and promoted by James Farganne.


        1. BTW… A lot of what is on Educate Yoursrlf seems to discount the threat of Fukushima too. The fact that they discredit James Stone’s site just makes the site Something Wicked This Way Comes look more like the real deal. You can’t beat FOIA documents when trying to prove the truth. They do not hint at what happened, just what happened after the disasters. If you want to disregard all 3 sites….so be it. It’s not like we can do anything about it nearly 3 years after the fact.

  2. In a word: depopulation. Under 500,000,000 is a lofty goal, after all.

    Again, alpha lipoic acid for flushing radiation from the system. It worked for the teens and pre-teens at Chernobyl. I’ve been taking 600 mgs.a day since not long after Fukushima was unleashed on us.

    1. Thanks Hatr I’ll be ordering a couple cases for the grandkids and some more Iodine as well.
