Looks like an ungodly mess.

As a bump and to record that Fukushima is trending on Facebook today (5 Feb) with 78k people talking about it.

Lets hope that it is spreading the news and making people aware and not some disinfo.

Unfortunately, The Japanese government and TEPCO will squash this as usual.

Sincere apologies. Real life often gets in the way of seeing urgent issues such as this. It's always best to send a private message, rather than presume complete SkepticOverlord situational awareness.


The enormity of the thread was causing performance issues at the time, that's the reason for the solution that was in place. It's now been removed.

Again, sorry I didn't see this sooner.


3 cheers for SO!

Wow. Thank you. It felt like years wasted for so many who have documented this disaster. Thank you SO. My faith is restored. Part 1 restored. Thank you ATS!

That is great, thanks for the head up, I thought it was a goner.

So ladies and gentlemen, as you know there have been some big developments in the past couple weeks. I would love to see this forum gain some traction because it has been excruciating wait for updates/answers over these years.


I'm hoping user purpleChive is ok, any updates?

Fourwinds, I always love your posts.

The pictures of nuclear fuel escaping and melting through grating are quite incredible.

Also I have been seeing more and more media attention, and for the first time i have been seeing some of my friends on facebook share Fukushima related posts.

I have used facebook as my best form of spreading the word. FUKU FRIDAY's is my nickname for - the one day of the week that i will post one article about fukushima to my newsfeed.

My friends list is well over 100, and my posts are beginning to be shared with other people that reach all of their friends. A 1 minute post by me, usually reaches hundreds. Its nice.

I did find this thread which seems to have a bunch of recent discussion:

Having now read back through the restored threads and then catching up with this one, it seems that we have lost some important members who were helping to catalog this tragedy. Z, M, PC, and several others were really helping to catalog this, does anyone have their contact information to maybe let them know that the old thread is restored?

Hey everyone

I just caught the tail end of a documentary on tv recently titled "The Russian Woodpecker" - I highly recommend it - their bottom line is that a Russian journalist discovered that the Chernobyl nuclear accident wasn't an accident...that it was intentionally set off in retaliation to wipe out a bunch of life for some reason or other (not sure why, I missed the first 4/5 of the documentary). I know its been postulated Fukushima was no accident either, this was the first I'd heard about Chernobyl falling into that category...

Posted on March 11, 2017, on the Deutsche Welle news site, a decently written summary of where things are now at the Fukushima Daiichi site:

www.dw.com...

400 fuel rods remaining at Unit 1? Based on where they are located within the building, it almost sounds like those were never-used rods. That would be a blessing. But the "600 partly burned fuel rods" remaining in Unit 3? Not so much of a blessing.

jadedANDcynical, thank you so much for the photo enlargement above. Much better.

The March 11, 2017 New York Times article observing six years on for the Fukushima nuclear disaster forgot to mention that Japan is building new incinerators this year to burn the increasing variety of Fukushima radioactive debris such as the following:

www.nytimes.com... gtype=Homepage®ion=CColumn&module=Recommendation&rechp&WT.nav=RecEngine&_r=1&mtrref=undefined

Actually, the article also left out the new business getting started in Fukushima prefecture, a firewood company whose owner said his wood has been tested and found to have a "safe" level of radiation. That wood will be sold and burned all over Japan, at least during Japan's colder months.

Given that citizen scientists on the US Pacific coast have documented months of increasing airborne radiation levels, with some spikes, my question for former US President Obama's upcoming book release on C-Span is, "Are these airborne US Pacific coast radiation spikes merely collateral damage or are they Japan's new US sneak attack?"

So, more than six years on at Fukushima Daiichi, you may ask, "What's new?" Short answer: "Nothing good."


There are 11,000 WikiLeaks documents so far that are related to the Fukushima nuclear disaster:

An academic review article summarizes what is known to date about radiocesium and radioiodine contamination of Pacific ocean life as of March 2017:

dunrenard.wordpress.com...


Keep in mind that other radioisotope contamination of Pacific ocean life forms is likely, but testing for the above two isotopes is relatively more affordable. Radioactive strontium-90, a bone-seeker, has not yet been tested for in those same ocean products, because the strontium-90 test is much more complex and much more expensive to conduct.

2017 interview in the town of Namie, Fukushima prefecture, of a Namie official by a journalist and some university professors regarding the local effects of Japan's official "return" and "reconstruction" policies. It includes beautiful pictures of an elder organic farming couple who have returned to their decontaminated farm:

dunrenard.wordpress.com...

See also the "Notes" section at the bottom of the interview. For example, to explain the only partial decontamination work that been done in the prefecture so far, the author explains: "When I visited Namie in the summer of 2016, with a group of researchers of Niigata University, the radiation levels in some backyards and forested areas ranged from 5-10 microsieverts per hour."

There are almost no typographic errors, although they said NPO when I think they meant to say NGO (non-governmental organizations).

I strongly disagree about their statements about future radiation teachings they expect in local schools, because a year or so ago, the Abe government took over control of all school educational materials in Japan.

I agree with their central conclusion: (Referring to the central government policy) "The current policy seems to focus on bringing back people, but unless government can recreate a safe environment for young people, including children, beginning with complete decontamination, it's hard to see any future."

This interview is the first I have seen from Fukushima prefecture since 2013 that makes it clear that, despite the heavily forested nature of the prefecture, the only forest decontamination done there so far has been to collect leaf litter, which is just token decontamination. What we know for sure from many well-documented sources, however, is that radioactive contamination moves around in the environment.

Japan is a very advanced country. But their country suffer so much in natural disasters and destroy their cities little by little now adding this nuclear threat by the North Korean's I can't imagine how the community feels on it.
