Tokyo off limits? Japan will become a nuclear desert? Those are the warnings of influential politician Ichiro Ozawa, who seems to have the guts to speak out some of the painful truth (see below).
Very quick review of what happened these last two days or so around the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe (from Energy News mostly, in chronological order):
US nuclear industry was “fortunate” that BP Oil Disaster happened — Helped shape communication strategy for Fukushima ["Fortunate" in the sense that they know they can lie without limit and that the media won't challenge it mostly]
|Evacuate THIS! Two months ago!|
50 mile evacuation zone around Fukushima was “very conservative” says NRC Commissioner [And this, 80 km, was what the USA proposed to no avail! Japan only implemented 20 km, 12 miles, recently expanded to 30 km (18 miles). I already said on March 31, after repeated infos of dangerous radiation at the latitude of Tokyo, that all northern Honsu should be evacuated at least the children and pregnant/lactating women].
If we do nothing, even Tokyo could become off limits: Japan senior politician [Ozawa] — “The government doesn’t tell the truth” [It could indeed].
Ozawa: We may not be able to live in Japan someday — Radiation is going to be flowing out for a long period of time
High-level radiation found over 300 km stretch off Fukushima — “Reconcentration” of radioactive substances observed… TEPCO had said it would significantly dilute in ocean
“Nuclear mafia” saying Fukushima “is not so terrible” — What they say is meaningless because they depend on nuclear power for their livelihood [Ozawa again]
Japan detects “extraordinarily high levels” of radioactivity off Sendai [North of Fukushima, another reactor was affected over there]
Reactor No. 5 cooling system stops, backup not yet working — Analysis showed No. 1 was melting 50 minutes after cooling stopped [Reactors 5 and 6 were so far allegedly not damaged, excepting the power supply initially].
Today, Sun 29:
Japan announces cooling systems restored at fuel pools No. 1-4, as breakdown of cooling occurs at No. 5 pool [Really? Why do I not believe a word?]
Fukushima nuclear plant is “leaking like a sieve” [This sounds more like the real thing, sadly enough]
