Quote: .. Forecasts from a] government computer system designed to predict the spread of radioactive releases [...] were left unpublicized by bureaucrats in Tokyo, operating in a culture that sought to avoid responsibility and, above all, criticism. [...]

As the nuclear plant continues to release radiation, some of which has slipped into the nation’s food supply, public anger is growing at what many here see as an official campaign to play down the scope of the accident and the potential health risks. [...]

The Reasoning

* Some current and former government officials have admitted that Japanese authorities tried “to limit the size of costly and disruptive evacuations in land-scarce Japan and to avoid public questioning of the politically powerful nuclear industry.”
* Current and former officials interviewed by the Times said “a wider evacuation zone would have meant uprooting hundreds of thousands of people… the government [was] desperate to limit evacuations beyond the 80,000 people already moved from areas around the plant.”
* Toshiso Kosako, a top Japanese expert on radiation measurement who resigned from an advisory group to Japan’s Prime Minister said “the prime minister’s office refused to release the results even after it was made aware of Speedi, because officials there did not want to take responsibility for costly evacuations if their estimates were later called into question.”

The Pattern

* “Officials have admitted that Japanese authorities engaged in a pattern of withholding damaging information and denying facts of the nuclear disaster.”
* “The computer forecasts were among many pieces of information the authorities initially withheld from the public.”
* Meltdowns went officially unacknowledged for months.
* “In one of the most damning admissions, nuclear regulators said in early June that inspectors had found tellurium 132, which experts call telltale evidence of reactor meltdowns, a day after the tsunami — but did not tell the public for nearly three months.”

Namie’s mayor Tamotsu Baba said the withholding of information was akin to “murder.”

Quote:Nationwide TV in Japan: Toxicity of plutonium “not very different than salt” — “So safe you can drink it”

Tokyo Brown Tabby’s latest captioning is over the collection of video clips of three Japanese nuclear researchers, claiming safety for plutonium on the national TV. The first two appeared on TV after the March 11 accident to assure the public that there was nothing to worry about on plutonium, because it was so safe.





Criminal prosecutions should be conducted against all pro nuclear lobby members in Japan.

(Literally) Covering Up Reactor 1 Has Started at #Fukushima I Nuke Plant has commenced.

Quote:The work to cover up the reactor building of Reactor 1 at Fukushima I Nuke Plant has started.

The insider rumor says TEPCO/the government really don't want those pesky satellites to look down on their broken reactors. They don't want to see them on Google Earth..

Covering it up for the sake of appearances does nothing to negate the lethal doses of radiation. This is absurd.

It just keeps getting worse, the info starting to trickle out on just how bad it is

Asahi: “Horrifying” that Fukushima meltdown equivalent to almost 30 times the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in WWII
Quote: [...] Tatsuhiko Kodama, 58, who heads the Radioisotope Center at Todai, was called to provide expert testimony before the Lower House Health, Labor and Welfare Committee on July 27. [...]

Besides being a doctor of internal medicine, Kodama is also an expert on internal radiation exposure. His background made even more shocking the testimony he provided in the Diet. [....]

Kodama explained the horrifying results of those calculations at the committee session.

“The equivalent of 29.6 times of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, or in terms of uranium about 20 atomic bombs, were released by the accident,” Kodama said. “While the remaining radiation from atomic bombs decreases to one-thousandth of the original level after a year, radioactive materials from the nuclear power plant only decrease to one-tenth the original level.” [...]

Quote:Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen says in a new interview that the Japanese are burning radioactive materials. The radioactivity originated from Fukushima, but various prefectures are burning radioactive materials in their terroritories.

Gundersen says that this radioactivity ends up not only in neighboring prefectures, but in Hawaii, British Columbia, Oregon, Washington and California.

He notes that radioactive rain-outs were documented recently in British Columbia and Oklahoma with geiger counters.
Gundersen is working with scientists who will publish a paper in the near future definitively debunking Canadian and American health officials' claims that only harmless levels of radiation are being released.

Gundersen has a high-level contact in the State Department who says that the U.S. government has decided - within various agencies, including the State Department, FDA, and other agencies - to downplay the dangers from Fukushima. Because of this policy decision, the government is not really testing for radiation.

Gundersen says that well see another year of radioactive rain-outs, as the Japanese continue to burn radioactive materials.

http://Tokyo sample had radioactivity le...s Tokyo”

enenews

Quote:Chris Busby [visiting professor at the University of Ulster’s school of biomedical sciences and scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk, a think-tank -Bloomberg]: There’s a very, very high level of contamination even as far south as Tokyo. For example, we found one sample in Tokyo that had levels of radioactivity higher than levels inside the Chernobyl exclusion zone. a Very serious matter.

Quote:US Government Considered Evacuation of 90,000 US Citizens in Tokyo

According to Kevin Maher, a US diplomat and the former director of the Japan Desk at the US State Department in Japan, the US government considered evacuating all 90,000 US citizens in Tokyo right after the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident.

From Yomiuri Shinbun (10:30PM JST 8/17/2011):

The US government was considering the plan to evacuate all 90,000 US citizens living in Tokyo right after the Fukushima I Nuclear power Plant accident, according to a new book.

The book, which is to be published on August 17, is titled (Japan that cannot decide)" (Bunshun Shinsho) and was written by Kevin Maher, former Japan Desk director at the US State Department. If the plan to evacuate 90,000 Americans had been carried out, it could have triggered reactions from other foreign governments, and caused panic among the Japanese....

Kevin Maher, An opportunistic SOB, writing a book, making a quick buck, out of nuclear disaster. He has info, which he should have told the public for free. If he was still "a US diplomat and the former director of the Japan Desk at the US State Department in Japan" while the crisis was still in its early days.

gaah.gif It should have triggered reactions from other foreign governments, and caused panic among the Japanese, and the world! This is not close to over, and by some accounts getting worse.

So, Americans evacuating would set off a panic but four nuclear reactors in meltdown will not?

Perhaps it is best for humanity that they do not leave...

WATER SYSTEMS TOO HOT - HAD TO BE TURNED OFF

SARRY, a cesium absorption system in the contaminated water treatment complex at Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant was stopped when the extremely high radiation of 3 sieverts/hour was detected during the operation to exchange the cesium towers.


TEPCO announced on August 22 that a high radiation of about 3 sieverts/hour was detected at Toshiba's SARRY which was recently introduced as part of the contaminated water treatment system at Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant. Due to the high radiation, TEPCO could not exchange parts [cesium towers], and the water processing [using SARRY?] had to be stopped.
