How to Decipher a Japanese Media Report
Work under way to prevent explosion at Fukushima reactor
TOKYO, April 6, Kyodo
"Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Wednesday started work to inject nitrogen into one of the reactors at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power
complex to reduce the potential risk of a hydrogen explosion, while it succeeded in stopping highly radioactive water leaking into the Pacific Ocean
from the plant earlier in the day."
A hydrogen explosion is imminent. We did not succeed in stopping radioactive water leaking into the Pacific Ocean but put on a pretty good show! Did
you see our reps apologizing then breaking down and crying! CLASSIC! I mean, who wasn't moved by that?
"Nitrogen, an inert gas, will be injected into the No. 1 reactor's containment vessel from around 1 a.m. Thursday, a process that could take several
days. Hidehiko Nishiyama, a spokesman for the government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency, denied during a morning press conference that there
is an ''immediate danger'' of explosion."
Look forward to a 2-3 day dog and pony show as we embark on another useless but crowd pleasing video expose to take attention off the fact our
reactors are melting down and in runaway fission reactions.
"In addition to the task of maintaining the relative stability of all six reactors at the nuclear complex in Fukushima Prefecture, the utility firm
known as TEPCO has also been engaged in efforts to stop highly radioactive water from leaking into the sea and cleaning up contaminated water within
Portraying our efforts as maintaining anything is a ruse and our efforts to stem the leakage into the sea have failed.
"At 5:38 a.m. Wednesday, highly contaminated water, which had been confirmed as leaking into the sea from around a cracked pit located near the No. 2
reactor water intake on Saturday, stopped flowing after TEPCO injected around 6,000 liters of chemical agents including sodium silicate, known as
Contradicting our statements from yesterday that the leakage was occuring in the gravel layer below the pit, not from an overflow hole that obviously
has been in use for years as indicated by the rust stains below the spout..
"Nishiyama told a press conference in the afternoon that so far no further leakage has been detected from the pit. But there is a possibility that
the water, which has lost an outlet, could show up from other areas of the plant."
We really have no idea where the leakage is coming from and frankly, we don't care. We got 6 nuclear bombs about to go off, why should we care about
a few thousand tons of nuclear material escaping into the ocean? For all practical purposes we have been using the ocean as our liquid landfill.
What is the PM going to do, send us another tersely worded yet polite letter? Hahaha!
"The highly radioactive water is believed to have come from the No. 2 reactor core, where fuel rods have partially melted, and ended up in the pit.
The pit is connected to the No. 2 reactor turbine building and an underground trench connected to the building, both of which were found to be filled
with highly contaminated water."
The #2 reactor core is cracked, the fuel rods melting down and we got water everywhere.
"To make room to store the highly radioactive water that is hampering the plant's restoration work, TEPCO continued to dump into the sea massive
amounts of low-level contaminated water from inside a nuclear waste disposal facility at the site as well as contaminated groundwater found from
around the Nos. 5 and 6 unit buildings."
Ooops, the spent fuel pools in 5&6 are compromised and the radiated water is leaking into the reacor chamber and then to the groundwater. Did we
mention that before? Sorry...
"TEPCO is aiming to dispose of a total of about 10,000 tons of low-level contaminated water into the sea by this weekend, a move which has sparked
concern among neighboring countries and strong protests from the domestic fishing industry."
"I know we said it was already done but dumping 10k tons of instant death takes time. We got our own problems here, frak the fisherman and the rest
of the world.
"After opening up the disposal facility, which can accommodate 30,000 tons of liquid, some repair work is expected to take place for about a week to
ensure that the facility can retain highly radioactive water safely without fear of the stored liquid leaking outside."
After dumping radiated cooling water from the holding tanks into the ocean, the seiverts of which we won't disclose, we will spend a week on another
dog and pony show which will captivate our audience but serve the useful purpose of diverting attention from the fact our reactors may explode and
shower the world with deadly radioactive particulates...at any time.
""The plant's power grid and most of the emergency diesel generators were knocked out by the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and ensuing tsunami on March
11, resulting in the loss of many of the reactors' key cooling functions, partial melting of reactor cores and hydrogen explosions."
Blah, blah, blah, watch us pull a rabbit out of this hat!
"According to estimates by TEPCO announced Wednesday, 25 percent of the nuclear fuel rods have been damaged at the No. 3 reactor. The company earlier
said that 70 percent of the No. 1 reactor's fuel rods and 30 percent of the No. 2 reactor's fuel rods have been damaged."
Which we've known all along but preferred to let you you know the extent of this catastrophe in small tidbits so as not to alarm anyone, particularly
our investors asd stockholders.
"Nishiyama said past hydrogen explosions have likely occurred due to hydrogen accumulation caused by the reaction of melted fuel rods' zirconium
with steam from the coolant water. But now there is concern that hydrogen could accumulate in the No. 1 reactor under a different process involving
radiation-induced decomposition of water into hydrogen and oxygen."
More hydrogen explosions on the way.
"In announcing TEPCO's decision to inject nitrogen into the reactor's containment vessel, an operation approved by the government, the nuclear
agency said that radioactive leaks are ''unlikely to significantly rise'' even if the pressure inside the vessel increases as a result of the
Radioactive leaks are most certainly going to increase, but blame it on the Gubmint who "approved" this dumba ss and useless operation.
"Nishiyama said that he also expects nitrogen to be injected into the Nos. 2 and 3 reactors in the future."
Reactors 2&3 are frakked as well, soon to be 4,5 and 6.
"The utility has been pouring massive amounts of water into the reactors and their spent nuclear fuel pools as a stopgap measure to cool them down.
But the measure is causing ''side effects,'' such as the detection of contaminated water in various parts of the nuclear complex and some leakage
into the sea."
Ooopys. Of course we knew this would happen, where was all that water going to go? But since we fed it to you in small portions you won't gag on it
all at once.
"A seawater sample taken near the No. 2 reactor water intake on Saturday showed a radioactive iodine-131 concentration of 7.5 million times the
maximum level permitted under law, or about 300,000 becquerels per cubic centimeter."
Of course that 10 million reading we took last week was false..it was only 7.5...
"In the first case of contamination levels in seafood exceeding the maximum legal limit, radioactive cesium in excess of the set limit was detected
in young sand lance caught Monday in the sea off the northern part of Ibaraki Prefecture."
The sand lance is a bottom dweller and radiation levels would be much lower than mid and topwater species. God forbid we give you the readings from
the other 97 species of fish, clams and seaweed we harvest for national and international export.
"The National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives Associations lodged a protest with TEPCO and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry on
Wednesday, saying the dumping of contaminated water into the sea without any prior consultation with fishermen was an ''outrage.''"
Frak 'em, they're not the boss of us!
"The group also called for the dumping of contaminated water and the leakage of highly polluted water from the plant to be halted so as to prevent
Japan's fishing industry from ''perishing.''"
Hahahaha! Is that all they got? HALT! What are they, Sgt. Shultz?
"To prevent the already seriously contaminated seawater close to the plant from spreading further, TEPCO is planning to install ''silt fence''
barriers in the sea, such as near the No. 2 reactor water intake."
And for our next illusion, we will cut this beautiful Geisha in half right before your lying eyes!
