No, all of Japan is not highly irradiated. Tokyo is not highly irradiated. Nor is any of the south. Fukushima is, and there are a few areas, like Ibaraki which I would not go to for any reason right now.
Sacrificing the few here, for the many, is not something that would sit well with me. Sacrificing my children and my own life blowing that thing up would not be acceptable to me. There are real people here whose lives mean anything.
Im no shill. I just dont fancy bits of irradiated shrapnel flying round if that thing is entombed and blows up, which could and would kill INNOCENT people.
I dont belong here. Im not American, and my interests are not there either. My interests are wholly 3 children here who I am desperate to not get sick or die.
Good luck everyone and bye.

The truth of the matter is, the US, UK, and all of NATO are currently and have been using tons of depleted uraniunm as weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. The depleted uranium has traveled all over the world though, and is in the drinking water of Los Angelas and every where else. All by design. TPTB know exactly what is going on and it is going as planned. TEPCO are Puppets/Stooges and will be rewarded for doing their job well.
Didn't mean to go off again, so let me say again, GOOD POST!
Press Release (Jun 01,2011)
Plant Status of Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Station (as of 3:00 pm, June 1)
On March 11 2011, turbines and reactors of Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power
Station Units 1 to 4 (Boiling Water Reactors, rated output 1,100
Megawatts) that we had been constantly operating at rated thermal output
were automatically shut down at 2:48 pm due to the
Tohoku-Chihou-Taiheiyou-Oki Earthquake (previously announced on March 11).
At 7:15 pm on March 15, the reactor of Unit 4 achieved cold shutdown. As a
result, all reactors of Units 1 to 4 at Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power
Station achieved cold shutdown (previously announced on March 15).
As of 3:00 pm on June 1, the reactors of Unit 1 to 4 are in cold shutdown
(please refer to the appendix). We continue to make our endeavors to
stabilize each plant.
·There is no update from the previous press release.
On April 16th, in order to check the condition of the water in the spent
fuel pool of Unit 2, we collected and conducted a nuclide analysis of
approximately 400 ml of water that flowed out of the pool into the
skimmer surge tanks, and as a result iodine-131, cesium-134, and
cesium-137 were detected. Later we conducted detailed analysis, and on
May 31 we concluded that the large portion of spent fuel is sound.
- At 11:40 am on May 31, we conducted leakage test on the primary system
of the alternative cooling system of the spent fuel pool at Unit 2. At
5:21 pm on the same day, we started the operation. At 6:11 pm we reached
to the rate flow (approx. 100m3/h). Later at 1:47 am on June1, we
adjusted the flow rate to 80m3/h.
At 5:06 am on June 1, we stopped primary pumps. From 6:06 am, we started
fresh water injection through spent fuel pool cooling and filtering
system of Unit 2. At 6:53, we finished the injection and at 7:06 am we
reactivated primary pumps.
- On April 12, in order to check the condition of the water in the spent
fuel pool of Unit 4, we collected approx. 200ml of the water in the pool
using concrete pumping vehicle. On April 13, we conducted nuclide
analysis of the sample and detected Cesium 134, Cesium 137, and Iodine
131. Later we conducted detailed analysis, and on May 31 we concluded
that the large portion of spent fuel is sound.
- At approximately 2:30 pm on May 31, big sound was confirmed at the
southern side of the reactor building of Unit 4, where wireless unmanned
heavy machineries were removing rubbles. We confirmed that it was the
impact sound when the unmanned heavy machinery tucked and broke some
cylinder. Nobody got injured. There was no change in the data of the
- We analyzed strontium in seawater collected on May 9 and detected
strontium 89 and 90.
- On May 31, we sprayed dust inhibitor to the area of approx. 8,750m2
including near the main gate.
- At 8:00 am on May 31, 2011, we confirmed oil leakage to the sea around
the curtain wall of the water intake canal of Unit 5 and 6, Fukushima
Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. As a result of our investigation, we
confirmed that oil leaked from pipes around seawall to the port through
holes of steel sheet piles and that the leakage already stopped. Since
the diffused area was just around the curtain wall and the surface of
the sea around Shallow Draft Quay and the oil film was very thin, we
confirmed that there is no spread to the outer sea. We completed
installing oil-absorbing mat around seawall at approximately 2:00 pm and
also installed oil fences at 4:50 pm. We plan to protect pipes around
seawall and collect the oil.
- At approximately 1:10 pm on May 31, one of the partner companies' workers
who were installing cables at Centralized Radiation Waste Treatment
Facility got a finger in his right hand injured. After the intravenous
drip at the power station, he was transferred to J Village at 2:26 pm.
Then at 3:35 pm he was transferred from J Village to Fukushima accident
Hospital. There was no contamination to his body.
Operation for cooling the spent fuel pools
- At 5:21 on May 31, we started cyclic cooling of the spent fuel pool in
Unit 2 using alternative cooling system for fuel pool cooling and
filtering system. At 6:11 pm on the same day, the rated flow reached to
approx. 100m3/h. Later at 1:47 am on June1, we adjusted the flow rate to

We owe it to the people in Japan who are suffering (as you are too) to put aside our emotions and to just get on with the job as best we can. It is difficult I know, but you have to remember that we all come from different cultures and backgrounds and we are trying to work together here to bring about a "best solution in the face of incompetence or enemies". Please try to understand that we are all in this together and although it may affect you sooner than it will us - because you are on the ground in Japan, we will all have to suffer the consequences of the ba5tards who do not seem to care what happens or who have a far bigger agenda about which we know nothing. So, here's hoping that you will reconsider and try to put our differences aside for the good of everyone in the world. (Dont forget one of the tools in the arsenal of those who are fighting against us is trying to divide and conquer our opposition to their plan)
On another note....
OK I was not going to post this as I was afraid that documents would be moved etc, but it seems that it is better for us all to use the information mow rather than one or two of us keeping it to ourselves. What I have found from our best friend Google putting in this into the search box
site:tepco.co.jp -www -thunder +fukushima
I may have totally got the wrong end of the stick and I may have let my conspiracy mind run away with me. If so please point it out and I will go and stand in a corner. :-) As far as I can interpret the pictures on these pages, I think....
we have a map of the monitoring positions around reactors 1-4
This is what MP-7 (monitoring position?) looks like
This is how it works
Since I cannot read Japanese, I have absolutely no idea what this map tells us, I assume it is background radiation perhaps?
Around us, if there is a variety of natural radioactive substances such as potassium and uranium, they were there since the earth is constantly followed by radiation out.
The amount of radiation is dependent on geology, there are significant regional differences.
I think this is a PDF of temperature readings of reactors 5 & 6 by hour
on the 27th May
and the 31st May
And I guess this is showing a problem with reactor 5?

Really though, if they want a fight, there are so many things which could be dredged up to show that nuclear energy is unsafe that they cannot be serious?
radioactive density of seawater
Snow on Fukushima peaks found to be radioactive
Snow in the mountains in Fukushima Prefecture is showing radioactive contamination at levels above the safety limit for drinking water. Researchers from Fukushima University performed the analysis with a local environmental group. They sampled snow in 31 locations and at different altitudes from 7 peaks around Fukushima city, from mid-April through early May. The results showed that snow in 14 locations contained more than 200 becquerels per kilogram of radioactive cesium, the adult safe limit for drinking water. A sample of snow from an altitude of 1,300 meters contained 3,000 becquerels of cesium.

Some of the truth comes out on MSM!

Tokyo (CNN) -- Up a narrow flight of stairs in a modest, non-descript office building, three retirees sit in a cramped room, hunched over their computers and mobile phones. They look like the planning committee for a neighborhood senior breakfast, not the leaders of a 250-member team attempting to defuse one of the worst nuclear meltdowns in history.
But that's exactly what 72-year-old Yasuteru Yamada hopes his seniors group, the Skilled Veterans Corps, will do: help end the crisis at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
