Update on Japan’s Fukushima’s Nuclear problem

Title: “Update on Japan’s Nuclear problem …
… Were original estimates withheld and if so – for what reason …

Thought of the Day: …
The Japanese Power Industry is privately run – the response to the Nuclear disaster was controlled by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) – had extreme financial interests in playing down the nuclear fallout – it is now being revealed that they reported radiation numbers 100% less than what was being released into the sea, soil and atmosphere …

The ABC have just released a headline story on the Nuclear update from Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown.

Japan doubles radiation leak estimate:

By North Asia correspondent Mark Willacy

Fukushima evacuees receive radiation scans

Japan’s nuclear safety agency has more than doubled its estimate of the amount of radiation released into the atmosphere from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency says it believes the earthquake-stricken Fukushima plant emitted nearly 800,000 terabecquerels of radioactive material into the air in the days after it was hit by a massive tsunami.

That is more than double the original estimate and is based on new information suggesting the No.1 and No.2 reactors suffered meltdowns much earlier than thought.

The revision reveals the failure to contain the disaster resulted in much more radioactive contamination of the soil, sea and air than the plant’s operators had acknowledged.

The disaster is rated a maximum seven on the international nuclear accident scale, the same level as the Chernobyl meltdown 25 years ago.

Late last month, it was feared two workers at the crippled nuclear plant were exposed to radiation above the level allowed in emergencies.

Japanese media reported the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) workers were exposed to at least 250 millisieverts of radiation.

The maximum dose used to be 100 millisieverts, but it was raised to 250 after the nuclear crisis began.

It is believed the men were exposed while working in the plant’s central control room and outside the reactor buildings.

Internal exposure occurs when people take radioactive substances into their bodies through tainted air or food and drink.

Media reports say the workers were found with levels of radioactive iodine in their thyroid glands 10 times higher than that of their fellow workers.

TEPCO says it has been measuring the internal exposure to radiation of all employees involved in emergency work at the Fukushima Daiichi plant crippled by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

Creditability is what this news release is all about – a natural disaster turned Toxic and the people in charge mis-lead the world about its seriousness – for the last two months – there have been snippets of information – all leading to this full disclosure – how far has the radiation now spread is the obvious question – to fish stocks … to atmosphere disbursement … there are so many more imponderables –

The technical numbers in the above report are scientific numbers – not numbers that normal people can understand – another sign the public yet again being fooled as to the seriousness of what has happened.
