ON EDIT: Damn, I have got to stop hitting the post button instead of preview. This should be a part of the above post.

Anyway, that this jewel of information was not widely reported and here it is the last sentence almost slipping by has prompted me to think the following. Its all a part of the game plan, thought out through the years in numerous industry think tanks. When you have a situation that is totally out of control, totally bad in every way, you downplay it as long as you can, then unload the truth of the situation in a mass of garbled reality spread out over time and mixed into actual facts.

First hide, then confuse, then overwhelm. And there game plan is going exactly as they had hoped for. The world has fallen asleep and moved on. Except here, EX-SKF, Hixon and ENENEWS. And this is the last open discussion forum examining the facts and still trying to piece it together. And that seems really really important right now.

"The price of freedom is constant vigilance". May we never forget.

What I mean by last forum in above post is that the other forum still hanging in there, PhysicsForum monster thread, is now basically just an information dispersal group. They have been so handcuffed by their "only the facts mam" BS that they cant go outside the box at all. In a situation like this you have to go outside the box because inside the box, like the BP spill, the only facts are those that the criminals allow to be known.

But bless them over there for providing a data flow. Good example;

If this has been discussed I apologize, and all I need is the page#.

Timeline to the disaster. They state that the EQ hit at 14:46 and the tsunami at 15:27. But in R1, they state that;

"At 15:03 reactor pressure at Unit 1 dropped so fast and the reactor coolant temperature decreased 55C per hour"

SL, SFA, TRN anyone. What does this mean and what could cause this 15 minutes before the tsunami and loss of power.

It sounds to me like the cooling pipes that run under the sea actually broke during the earthquake and radioactive water was pumping out of the formerly closed loop system and sea water was being pumped back in, well before the tsunami struck

TEPCO starts system to cool another spent fuel pool at nuclear plant

As for the steel megafloat, which is berthed at a quay near the plant, about 8,000 tons of low-level radioactive water will be transferred over the next three or four months. The government’s nuclear safety agency said TEPCO has not yet decided what to do with the water after it is transferred, but it will not be directly dumped into the sea.

8000 tons... that's nothing!

Concerning the recent Guardian story on UKs collusion with the nuke industry, the agency involved was the Office of Nuclear Development. This is known as 'agency capture' and in the 80s was originally used to describe what had happened to a division of an agency, say the Santa Rosa office of CDF (and an excellent example if I say so myself). Then in the 90s it started being used for entire agencies ie USFS, EPA etc. Since 2001, a new term has been used, 'government capture' to signify that a particular countries government no longer functioned for the interests of it's constituents, but for special interests both inside and outside that country. And at this point in time, there are very few countries not under capture.

Thats what we are up against. A government, Japan, that no longer functions for the interests of it's constituents, is allowing a worldwide catastrophe to unfold, and it's actions are shielded by the US, UK and France, other countries that no longer function for the interests of their constituents.

And behind all of this corruption lies a reason far greater than any other. The grid, the greatest and most dangerous beast ever created. They used Tesla's data to create it, and he spent the rest of his life trying to destroy it. Everyday it grows bigger, its tentacles stretching ever further into the few remaining wild lands still left.

There are five major components that supply the grid. Oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear and hydroelectric. The other alternatives have been kept at bay by the big 5 because they've created the infrastructure and make their money from these and don't want to see demand dwindle. But they know the days of both oil and coal are limited, eventually the environmental destruction they produce from all aspects will push public sentiment to the breaking point. And hydroelectric is getting seen more and more as too destructive, especially to beloved salmon. That leaves gas and nuclear. And the forms of natural gas left in abundance are in shale, the extraction of which is way too destructive and they know wont last; and frozen off the coastlines of the world in the form of methane hydrates, which is possibly the most dangerous to extract of any of the fossil fuels, and what caused the BP spill, (trust me). So that leaves nuclear. If TPTB are to continue control of the world's capital they will need to keep the grid alive. And they will do this at all costs.

The answer that saves us all, and that every government on this planet should be promoting is distributed power systems, individual home systems, a return to 12volt, and conservation, while funding R&D to ensure an ever improving system.

It would be nice, yes?

ON EDIT: I should add changing our entire life style, leaving the plastic and toxic manufactured 'buy and toss' one to slowly fade away.

PDF : TEPCO radiation

During TEPCO’s press conference of May 30th, the CRIIRAD laboratory manager, Mr Chareyron, asked a TEPCO representative about the air contamination monitoring procedure in the vicinity of Fukushima Daiichi. TEPCO explained that there was only one monitoring station, located at the western gate, but stated that the device is used only about 20 minutes each day. This means that during the remaining 98,6 % of the time, the contamination of the air around the plant is not measured. The CRIIRAD wondered how it is be possible when a small NGO such as the CRIIRAD is able to run 5 air monitoring stations in France, that TEPCO could not afford one. TEPCO replied that it was not a money issue but a lack of personnel qualified to change the filters of the instruments.

Yet another cover up by TEPCO... disgusting.

New Analysis of Unit 3 Fuel Pool Video Reveals Top of Fuel Bundle

A quote from Arnie's page

"A video first released by TEPCO in April has been re-analyzed by Ian Goddard and appears to reveal a handle found atop a single nuclear fuel bundle. This raises more questions about the condition of any fuel still remaining in the Unit 3 fuel pool."

End of quote.

Arnie & Helen Caldicott speak together

Unit 1 & 2 "Can't get any worse".
Measuring 400rems/hr (lethal within 1 hour).

Unit 3. "Still possibility of steam explosion".

Unit 3 & 4 SFP "Biggest fear is seismic aftershock". Are so structurally unsound a reasonably sized aftershock could bring them down. "If the buildings topple, my advice is to leave Japan".

Helen Caldicott: "There is no medical treatment. After it's in your body you can't get rid of it."

From the AP, a detailed description of the first 24 hours at the plant.

AP IMPACT: First 24 hours shaped Japan nuke crisis
By ERIC TALMADGE, Associated Press – 6 hours ago

FUKUSHIMA, Japan (AP) — When Unit 2 began to shake, Hiroyuki Kohno's first hunch was that something was wrong with the turbines. He paused for a moment, then went back to logging the day's radioactivity readings.
He expected it to pass. Until the shakes became jolts.
As sirens wailed, he ran to an open space, away from the walls, and raced down a long corridor with two colleagues. Parts of the ceiling fell around them. Outside, he found more pandemonium.
"People were shouting about a tsunami," he said. "At that point, I really thought I might die."
EDITOR'S NOTE: It was an ordinary Friday afternoon, and then the shaking began — harbinger of a nuclear nightmare that rages on, three months later. A moment-by-moment account of the crucial first 24 hours after an earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi plant.
Breathless, Kohno climbed a small hill and turned to look back. Black plumes rose from the reactor units. The emergency generators, burning diesel, had kicked in.
He saw the wave. It crashed over the plant's seawall, stopping only when it reached the foot of the slope about 500 yards (460 meters) from where he stood.
Kohno watched, stunned.

Thank you AP...keep sharing. Even though you can't smell it, the SHTF.

AP IMPACT: First 24 hours shaped Japan nuke crisis

On that day, Team A, a crew of 13, including a trainee, was overseeing Units 1 and 2 in one control room. In another, a crew of nine was responsible for Units 3 and 4. The latter, along with Units 5 and 6, was offline for maintenance.
The first news was good.
All three working reactors automatically came to an emergency shutdown when the shaking began. Within one minute, all control rods were inserted properly into the cores, stopping the nuclear reactions.
What came next changed everything.
The first wave hit the plant at 3:27 p.m. At 13 feet, it was easily blocked by the plant's breakwater, which stands 33 feet above sea level.
But the one that struck eight minutes later was off the scale.
It flowed up and over the barrier, washed over a 33-foot (10-meter) water tank and tossed passenger cars this way and that. Watermarks suggest the wave may have been as high as 50 feet (15 meters).
Team A watched, horrified, as the plant deteriorated by the minute. A detailed operator's log, along with a handwritten timeline on the control room whiteboard, showed how quickly the units failed.
"15"37' D/G 1B trip," said a scribbled notation indicating the Unit 1 diesel generator went out. It was 3:37 p.m., just two minutes after the second wave had struck.
Then: "SBO." Station Blackout. The power was out.
Four minutes later, at 3:41 p.m., Unit 2 lost power. Minutes after that, key instrument readings stopped.
In the dark, workers found a main power switchboard had been submerged and a main power line brought down by a mudslide. The basement of the Unit 1 turbine building was filled with water. Two workers would later be found drowned in the basement of another turbine room.
Exactly what was happening inside the reactors remained a mystery. At 3:50 p.m., Team A wrote: "Water levels unknown." If not replenished, the water in the core would boil away and the rods would melt.
Two minutes later, Team A added an even more dire note on Unit 2: "ECCS injection not possible." The emergency core cooling system, the last-ditch backup to keep the core from going dry, was down.
It was an hour after the tsunami, and Team A desperately requested emergency power vehicles. By the time they arrived and were hooked up, it would be too late.

Japan's nuclear nightmare had begun.

In regard to the robot vacuuming...


Are they trying to capture particulates deposited on the floor to examine?

What would be on the floor that they don't already know about?

Time consuming...expensive and precious piece of equipment...


Interesting Imlite...thanks for posting...intriguing...

I think this thread, and the comprehensive nature of our data gathering, reminded me of a quote from Winston Churchill:

Why, you may take the most gallant sailor, the most intrepid airman, or the most audacious soldier, put them at a table together - what do you get? The sum of their fears.

Re: Robot Vacuuming...

From 10:59 am to 12:14 pm on July 2, we conducted measurement of the radiation dose at the first floor Unit 3 Reactor Building using robot to check the cleaning effect the day before.

The status rpt from July 1st:

At 11:43 am on July 1, we started cleaning up the first floor of Unit 3 Reactor Building using a robot.

What the hell are they "cleaning"?

On edit:

The No.3 reactor building has been filled with highly radioactive sand, dust and rubble since it was badly damaged in a hydrogen explosion in March.

The radiation level inside the facility is 170 millisieverts per hour at its peak. The high radiation is preventing workers from going inside and taking steps to prevent fresh explosions.

It kinda, sorta answers my question...but still suspicious...

CONFUSION - Unit 3....

They got robots cleaning up Unit 3 on July 1st and 2nd because they can't enter the building and do anything....

But they did this on Thurs. June 30?

Tokyo Electric Power Company says the cooling system that began operating at the No.3 reactor on Thursday has brought the temperature of the nuclear fuel storage pool of the reactor to just below 40 degrees Celsius from the previous level of 62 degrees.

And Arnie posting this yesterday...

I am so confused...and so suspicious. Please follow this time line and info and please let me know how this could possibly have happened...

If you scroll down to Fukushima residents #3, it looks like Tepco was moving decimal points. I'm sure there's other nuggets, in here too....
