Study Shows Worse Picture of Meltdown in Japan

I think most people accept things are generally a lot worse in Japan than what we have been told.

We have more news being brought into the mainstream media to confirm this.


Molten nuclear fuel may have bored into the floor of at least one of the reactors at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant



In the No. 1 reactor, the overheated fuel may have eroded the primary containment vessel’s thick concrete floor, and it may have gotten almost within a foot of a crucial steel barrier, the utility said the new simulation suggested. Beneath that steel layer is a concrete basement, which is the last barrier before the fuel would have begun to penetrate the earth.



Some nuclear experts have warned that water from a makeshift cooling system now in place at the plant may not be able to properly cool any nuclear fuel that may have seeped into the concrete.
The findings are the latest in a series of increasingly grave scenarios presented by Tepco about the state of the reactors.


It sounds like they are starting to awaken to how bad things might actually be in Japan. This is only the beginning. If you read the article this is all being down with simulation programmes.


“This is still an overly optimistic simulation,” said Hiroaki Koide, an assistant professor of physics


This is a guessing game . THey are now telling us this is all a guessing game and they are trying to stick with the most positive outcome.


. “In reality, it’s impossible to look inside the reactor, and most measurement instruments have been knocked out. So nobody really knows how bad it is.”


I suppose this in some way will be used as an excuse for not telling people how bad the diaster has been. They just have no idea.

Man this really wasn't Japans year was it


The sad thing is the true scale of of the disaster are nowhere near surfacing yet. Give it a decade or so until you start to see the first Fukushima generation of kids. No doubt we'll have a similar situation with birth defects and mutations just like Tchernobyl.

People that arent even alive yet are going to have to deal with the consequences, arguably even more so than the current generation.

That kind of destroys my belief in Karma...

I would have thought they've had enough time since March to get some new measuring instruments to replace the ones that were damaged in the accident?

In the three mile island accident, I believe it was only about 10 years after the accident that cameras were lowered into the reactor area and we finally saw how bad it really was, and it was found to be much worse than most people had expected.

I'm not sure why it took them 10 years to lower a camera inside, but perhaps the radiation was too high for the first 9 years or something? If that's any guide and since Fukushima accident is worse, it may be more than 10 years before we get a handle on how bad it really is.

They spent the first weeks telling us that chernobyl produced no issues, no birth deformities, nothing, check it out, disgusting. Then they spend the next months telling us near nothing, or nothing useful.

I think the big question is what will they do 'when' it burns out and into the water table.
Super-heated radioactive steam is just one of the issues....

Things are looking really bad in japan from the personal reports of what is happening with the people.Here is a blog that is being written by someone who is living in japan

Most of them do not have finances or places to migrate to and they have no choice but to accept their fate and suffer.

My heart sunk with that last quote:

It's hard to comprehend why Japan has seemingly been designated as THE site for nuclear experimentation, with the Japanese people as the "rats"

I pray for you, my brothers and sisters in Japan, and I continue to share/educate about what's going on. You have not been forgotten.
