Your Comment is not even funny but pointless

You can't compare this People with each other.

My comment was never intended to be funny - this topic is deadly serious. And I can compare whomever I like however I like, thank you. You refer to Tepco as your friends, I refer to them as shills and in on the whole cover-up along with the IAEA and Abe and everyone else on their payrolls and paybacks including the media. It is extremely naive to think this isn't what is happening.

Their progress report is about very little progress. The IAEA praises how much they're doing. Really? Three years and they've got 15% of the easy to move fuel rods moved which are the least of the problems there. Thousands of tons of nuked water going into the ocean and "maybe" in 40 years they will have developed the technology?!?!? to deal with this? The ALPS isn't working, nothing substantial has been done at Fukushima to stop what is, it's a dog and pony show.

Once upon a time, there lived six blind men in a village. One day the villagers told them, "Hey, there is an elephant in the village today."

They had no idea what an elephant is. They decided, "Even though we would not be able to see it, let us go and feel it anyway." All of them went where the elephant was. Everyone of them touched the elephant.

"Hey, the elephant is a pillar," said the first man who touched his leg.

"Oh, no! it is like a rope," said the second man who touched the tail.

"Oh, no! it is like a thick branch of a tree," said the third man who touched the trunk of the elephant.

"It is like a big hand fan" said the fourth man who touched the ear of the elephant.

"It is like a huge wall," said the fifth man who touched the belly of the elephant.

"It is like a solid pipe," Said the sixth man who touched the tusk of the elephant.

They began to argue about the elephant and everyone of them insisted that he was right. It looked like they were getting agitated. A wise man was passing by and he saw this. He stopped and asked them, "What is the matter?" They said, "We cannot agree to what the elephant is like." Each one of them told what he thought the elephant was like. The wise man calmly explained to them, "All of you are right. The reason every one of you is telling it differently because each one of you touched the different part of the elephant. So, actually the elephant has all those features what you all said."

"Oh!" everyone said. There was no more fight. They felt happy that they were all right.

Fukushima Daiichi NPS Prompt Report 2014

Immediate Release:

TOKYO, February 3, 2014 - Strong progress on several fronts at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station highlight the latest progress report from the plant's owner, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, on the implementation of its Nuclear Safety Reform Plan.

The Plan, which covers all three of the company's nuclear power stations, was adopted in the aftermath of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami that crippled the Fukushima Daiichi facility and destroyed four of its six generating units.

Commenting on his receipt of the report, Dr. Dale Klein - the former Chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission who chairs TEPCO's Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee - said the report, which covers the period from October-December 2013, reveals "steady progress," particularly with regard to the Unit 4 fuel removal. He emphasized, however, that "this is a time for TEPCO to remain vigilant and not allow these successes to lull it into complacency. A long-term water solution remains to be agreed upon, and that will require some difficult decisions. And continuing efforts need to be made to inculcate a true safety culture."

Lady Barbara Judge CBE, the former Chairman of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, who is Deputy Chairman of the Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee, contrasted the aspirations of the previous progress report with the actions reported by the current one. She particularly noted that "the Nuclear Safety Oversight Office is now fully engaged, monitoring the line organization, making suggestions which are being listened to and implemented" and also praised TEPCO for "real change" in communications, including improvements in press communications and the hiring of a new leader of the Social Communication office. Like Dr. Klein, she said "there is a long way to go" in what she described as the "journey" toward a safety culture.

Progress at all Three Installations

In addition to addressing developments at the stricken Daiichi facility, the report also described developments at two others: Fukushima Daini, a coastal facility to the south of the Daiichi plant that escaped significant damage from the tsunami but which has been placed in "cold shutdown" since that event, and Kashiwazaki-Kariwa (KK), the world's largest nuclear generating facility, which the company has sought permission from Japanese regulators to restart.

It also reports on the progress of management reforms instituted after the accident. Highlights of the report include:

-Safe removal of nuclear fuel from Fukushima Daiichi's Unit 4. Of the 202 fresh fuel and 1,331 spent fuel assemblies in the unit when the process began, 22 fresh fuel and 110 spent fuel assemblies have been removed, all of them safely and without incident. The process will be completed by the end of this year.

-Many steps were taken during the quarter to improve management of contaminated water at Fukushima Daiichi, ranging from improvements to storage tanks to improved administrative facilities.

-Units 5 and 6 at Fukushima Daiichi, which were undamaged by the tsunami, are being converted into research centers that will aid in the decontamination efforts at the four damaged units.

-Efforts intended to lead to the restart of KK are progressing, including detailed review of a wide variety of safety features related to earthquakes, tsunamis, fire, flooding, and other potential hazards.

-Reviews and training of managers, including the nuclear leadership, took place, including training on safety culture, risk communications, and other areas.

Tepco Report

Nothing from Tepco is relevant. The Japanese government themselves have called Tepco liars publicly. So I see no reason why anyone should even bother reading this progress report.

On 17 February 2014, Japan has provided the IAEA with a comprehensive report on the events and highlights related to the recovery operations at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. The complete report is followed by IAEA comments and assessments of the material.

Primary conclusions from the Agency assessment of the material have not changed from the previous report and states that:

In general, it is expected that the situation onsite will remain very challenging as the recovery operations progress. Based on the information that has been made available, the IAEA considers that all members of the public are safe and that the food supply is safe and is being appropriately managed.

The Agency welcomes the Japanese Government's issuance of this information to the IAEA Member States and the public, detailing the current status of the recovery operations. The IAEA will continue to share such valuable information as it is provided.

In addition the Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) provided another news release on action related to TEPCO's fuel removal from Unit 4.

I wouldn't trust Tepco as far as I could throw them either.... anything released from Tepco has their bottom profit line above anything else, especially human interest. It's all about money.

I think the trick about TEPCO is that they aren't the only ones watching what they're collecting and reporting data about. They haven't been since day 1. You can bet the data sitting on the net today for the timeline and readings of the first few weeks and right on to present is the same timelines and data, unless openly noted, as was sitting there then. Then, being a time half the world was watching extremely closely to dispute anything funny looking.

There is the trick... TEPCO can downplay and play around with HOW they report things, but they really can't play too much with the baseline facts ...since the interests watching that same thing from the outside are as conflicting and varied as the interests TEPCO has for downplaying things. One would burn the other pretty quick if coloring got too far outside the lines, IMO.

I think they can go just so far in the fudge factor before they'd be called in a way even they couldn't put back together again or un-ring, so it puts something of a natural limit to how out of line their reports can get. Most incidents don't have everyone from nations, to universities to private citizens watching everything done with laser like intensity, as some from all those segments still do for Fukushima, to this day. If that attention ever fades too much....Then, I'd watch for TEPCO to play fast and loose.

I agree that Tepco can only deceive so much before the whole house of cards would come tumbling down. But waiting 5 months to say "oops we are very sorry but readings were 5,000,000 vice the original 900,000" figure makes it hard for people for find them completely credible. Most big corporations would most likely do the same thing in similar circumstances.

They can't low ball figures too much, as you said, there are too many eyes watching. But they have been caught repeatedly lying or fudging facts too much to make me trust them.

In situations like this, money is always the motivating factor..... Tepco would never release information unless forced too that would put them at financial risk. In other words, if Tepco had done something that made the situation worse instead of better, I doubt very seriously that they would admit it first... it would most likely come out from one of the regulating agencies.

The flow of information about Fukushima seems to be slowly drying up.....Enenews is a good example of this.... they used to post numerous articles daily, now they usually only post one story a day or every other day. When the doom porn sites start drying up on information, you can bet the rest of the world is too. Control the information being released and you control what people have to make decisions based upon.

It astounds me on how many people get that blank look in their eye if you mention Fukushima.

I think Tepco's philosophy is no news is good news..... but I and many others doubt that is the actual case.
