Now if this can get enough attention by the MSM to force the powers in charge to admit what the U.S navy did, or the Crimes the EPA and FDA did, but mainly it needs to be the turning point in education, people need to know the truth of how bad it still is

In fact term "meltdown" was furiously opposed by TEPCO, JGOV and MSM at least till that famous "cold shutdown" - i.e. 9 month after event.

For example citation from WSJ 12.16.2011:

"The tsunami-stricken nuclear-power complex came closer to a catastrophic meltdown than previously indicated by its operator, Tepco."

to be honest though I don't think they could have done much more than they have in trying to control this disaster.

You are completely wrong there.

Had this been acknowledged as the extremely catastrophic nuclear event that it is from the start, international aid could have assisted.

From the VERY START Japan said it's not a big deal. They said that for 2 whole years before finally admitting it was something they needed help with. Even then they played it down as something that was on the very low scale of disasters.

If this meltdown had been recognized for the true disaster it is from the start, the entire world would have helped fix it...but no, the Japanese decided to try to cover it up.

Exactly. This is global criminal conspiracy. Some fogging is understandable during initial assessment to prevent panic - say 1 week. Later is pink washing pure crime against humanity.

I feel the word "shill" is overused. However, i had gotten the impression that there were many shills working with the cover-up of fukishima. It was either compltely downplayed like it was no biggie. Or it was utterly overplayed, like the world was going to end soon.

I don't think people realize that overplaying a subject can be a form of misinformation. If I was a shill, that it how I would operate.

Blast the internet with videos and posts about how everybody on the U.S. west coast will get cancer in 1-2 years. Then when it doesn't happen, people think fukishima conspiracy theorist are all nuts.

It works with every conspiracy. Tell people that the queen of england is a reptillian alien. Then when someone says they believe in UFOs, a person will reply, "i bet you think all the leaders are lizard people too!".

PBS is a conspiracy theorist group?

February, 2012.

TAKASHI SATO: [through interpreter] To see those kind of numbers would normally be unthinkable. And this isn’t inside the reactor itself, it’s in the office. It was a disaster.

NARRATOR: The engineers suspected something that the prime minister and TEPCO would not acknowledge for months — nuclear meltdown had begun.

“MURAKAMI”: [through interpreter] I realized that the fuel had started to melt. We got our masks and put them by our feet so we could escape at any time.

I don't blame you at all. The pacific is only going to get worse, and there isn't jack we can do about cleaning it up. We're all screwed. Or rather, the future generations are.

Someone needs to pay for this crime against humanity.


Love to see you hold the Earth responsible for this in a court of law as that is the entity responsible for the problem...the only problems humans caused was stupidity after the fact.

Here would also like to expand a bit on your comments as it seems on March 12 they admitted that a meltdown of the reactors cores may be taking place...


On March 12, one day after the tsunami knocked out power and cooling facilities, Koichiro Nakamura, a senior official at the now-defunct Nuclear and Industry Safety Agency, told a news conference that a “meltdown of a reactor’s core” may be taking place at the Fukushima plant, given the radiation levels detected.


It also seems those in charge didn't have a clear understanding on the what constitutes a meltdown...


Handa said a meltdown would have been declared if the guidelines had been followed correctly. But she said Tepco reported its estimates of damage to the government immediately — as required by law — and its failure to describe the situation as one of meltdown did not break regulations. “Executives in charge of public relations at the time of the accident were not aware of the assessment criteria written in the Disaster Management Manual,” Handa said. “They believed there was no clear definition of a ‘meltdown,’ so they didn’t make any clear remarks about one,’ ” she said.


www.japantimes.co.jp...

Doesn't look like much of a coverup, as it looks more like stupidity of those in charge not knowing the proper guidelines to follow.

I guess when alternative sites make their own stories it all becomes a conspiracy.

Yep, those of us who plowed through the interminable amounts of garbage put out trying to obfuscate what many surmised and that has now finally been admitted to are now vindicated.

Once outside power was suddenly lost, the inevitable was in no way going to be averted. Problems began before ground even broke on the plant.

Tepco's own geologists originally told them not to place the plant at that location specifically because of the tsunami risk.

Decades of corruption and a revolving door between energy companies (TEPCO isn't the only power company in Japan), regulatory agencies, and government ministries added to the original problem of a poor location.

There is evidence that the earthquake itself caused enough damage to have instigated the meltdowns regardless of the tsunami.

They still do not know where the cores are, nor do we have the technological capability to remove them even if we could locate them. Robots die when they get in too hot of a zone, their circuit boards cannot even withstand the punishing radiation.

One of the techniques used was a muon camera, well when they looked at where they thought the core was supposed to be, they got a huge surprise as it wasn't there. Yes, the cores are still beneath the plant somewhere occasionally fissioning uncontrollably as is evidence by the random appearance of I-131 from time to time; this particular daughter isoptope has a very short half life and it continuing to be found gives lie to TEPCO's "cold shutdown."

It's a mess, and what a lot of people on these boards were saying at the time, yet were shouted down for, is now shown to have been true all along.

Actually, there was an attempt at a coverup. Sort of. Apparently, under direction from the top, they seem to have just stopped using the word.


The report said TEPCO officials, who had suggested possible meltdowns, stopped using the description after March 14, 2011, when Shimizu's instruction was delivered to vice president at the time, Sakae Muto in a memo at a televised news conference. In a video from that day, a company official rushes over to Muto, showing the memo and telling him that the Prime Minister's Office has banned the word.

The investigators found no evidence of the claim about the Prime Minister's office.

No it wasn't as that has been shown. They knew a meltdown was going to happen it is because those idiots in charge didn't follow the guidelines that were in the assessment criteria written in the Disaster Management Manual, and because of that they weren't sure of the clear definition of what constitutes a meltdown.

Stupid yes...conspiracy not so much.

I watched NHK world at the time of this disaster. They were all laughing and joking at the scale model of the reactor.

The Chinese were furious with the Japanese because all the latter could do was to bow and apologise like nodding ducks.

The reactor blocks were so radioactive that neither human or robot could enter. All the Japanese could do was keep the storage pools filled with water and store the contaminated water somewhere. At times they had to let the water run off.

But the real cover up was that they didn't use Geiger counters with a high range. If the radiation levels want off the scale they just put the highest reading.

Maybe not so much of a coverup... more like just plain stupidity of those in charge not understanding the criteria for a meltdown. At least from TEPCO.

That's why I think it was more stupidity than a coverup.

Honestly in that sense it is a bit of both. They had no damn clue what they were playing down to the world. It is definitely on the Japanese government with these recent admissions though, it shows they were complicit in it. Probably paid to shhh as well.

Been saying it for years, and I won't eat a thing out of the Pacific Ocean and haven't since 2011. I really miss seafood... Shame. 😪

Am I crazy about that? I don't think so. It's crazy to me that people are still chomping down shellfish, shrimp, salmon, tuna, etc. etc.... without a care in the world. The cover up is still ongoing and VERY effective.



Maybe some of these reports that have been on going about mysterious deaths and problems with sea life from the pacific will gain a new look into them?

I can only hope.

BTW, What happen to the original Thread about the nuclear disaster in Japan? You can only view the first page.

According to a new report, the Japanese government worked in concert with TEPCO to purposely cover up the meltdown at Fukushima in 2011.
“I would say it was a coverup,” Tokyo Electric Power Company President Naomi Hirose announced during a press conference. “It’s extremely regrettable.”


New Report Exposing Cover-Up of Fukushima Proves Conspiracy Theorists Right

Well, well, well, after all these years, they finally fess up. Way to go Japan !!!

Maybe all the other relavent factors associated to this will gain a little more credibility.

I use to follow that huge Japan thread www.abovetopsecret.com...

Kudo's to those that contributed !


I think you are all way to excited by this quote un quote conspiracy.

They told us right off the bat that the whole situation was out of control.

What we have hear is group in the middle of a disaster who suddenly remembered to they should try to talk about the situation with out sounding like they were panicking.

That whole set of reactors... was a disaster waiting to happen, from the get go. I don't have sources anymore for the following points. This is all from memory, from a paper I wrote as my final project for english composition 2. It was ten pages with a six page long works cited section. I wish I still had a copy of it..

1. Location, location, location!

The area itself being right by the ocean, and being so seismically active, was the first in a very long string of bad ideas they had.

2. They were poorly built, and very poorly planned... with the pools suspended a hundred feet off the ground, in poorly constructed buildings.

The planning was so poor, that the people from General Electric, that were initially involved in the plant's conception, backed out because they knew it was all a bad idea.

3. They never built a facility, or even made any plans, for where to store the spent rods... At all. That's why there were so many rods in the third (if I remember correctly) building's pool to begin with. They had no where to take them, and no way to get them there, so they just let them accumulate in the reactor pools.

4. TEPCO failed to do inspections and maintenance on the grounds, because they were afraid to upset the locals. So they just didn't... Because TEPCO is awesome.

5. The Japanese regulatory entities (I cant recall exact names), as well as the EPA, changed the levels of what was considered to be "safe" amounts of radiation, in the wake of the Fukushima disaster, raising them considerably.

6. The EPA's monitoring systems weren't being maintained, so early readings were inaccurate. They didn't change filters, or maintain the monitors properly, on many, but not all of the monitors.

7. The solution for the exposed pool in building 3, at one point, was to cover it with a tarp, after the building was damaged, and then further damaged by an explosion in the reactor. Safety first, kids! Tarps are apparently good enough to contain an exposed pool, teeming with radioactive materials, suspended a hundred feet in the air.

The whole thing should have never even been built in the first place...

I got an A on the paper if anyone was wondering... Lol
