There is a lot of non-reporting of what is really going on behind the scenes in regards to Fukushima.
Apparent authentic documents obtained in 2012 using the FOIA about what really has happened at Fukushima reveal, if accurate, that the spent fuel rod containers in Daichi 4, and possibly in # 3 were destroyed directly after the initial earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 and a mass release of radiation occurred. This would explain why we are seeing such high levels of radiation already in the West.
This would also mean that all the information being released from Fukushima is propaganda to keep us from discovering that the worst case scenario has already occurred and there is a massive cover up going on. For if this information was released all nuclear power plants would be shut down immediately by public demand… or maybe not.
NRC CHAIRMAN JACZKO: Yes. So, again, just to repeat, we believe pool No. 4 is dry, and we believe one of the other pools is potentially structurally damaged?
CHUCK CASTO: That’s correct.
The U.S. has had, and most likely has employed, its NEST, National Emergency Response Team to Fukushima.
“Following the 1994 exercise in New Orleans, NEST was restructured. The name NEST was maintained but instead of the Nuclear Emergency Search Team it became the Nuclear Emergency Support Team. It was reorganized into three elements: the Nuclear/Radiological Support Team (NRAT), Search, and the Joint Technical Operations Team (JTOT). NRAT has domestic and foreign support teams which deploy from Washington to advise local authorities, and provide a rapid-response capability to provide preliminary information for follow-on groups. ”
GE Involved Every Step of the Way
Greenpeace has called for “GE” to be held accountable for the flawed design of the reactors at Fukushima Daiichi. This seems to ignore the reality that “GE” is still there and largely in charge of the disaster response and profiting off of it.
This company has been a major player in the response at the plant. Hitachi-GE is frequently names as just “Hitachi” but it is the GE nuclear company as it exists today in both Japan and the US. This is the company that designed and mostly built the reactors at Fukushima Daiichi. They have also had a heavy presence in the maintenance and repair of these reactors over the decades. This list of open proposals on Hitachi-GE’s website shows the considerable extent to which they are running the response to the disaster and decommissioning efforts. Hitachi is doing everything from inspection efforts to decommissioning planning based on their requests for proposals on their website. Hitachi is also frequently branded on these efforts already underway though TEPCO declines to admit who is doing the work. Hitachi developed the SoRa robot. They were involved in the boat robot project. Hitachi admits involvement in just about every aspect of the response at Daiichi. Hitachi-GE appears to admit their involvement in the fuel removal work at Unit 4 in this detailed presentation they give at Oak Ridge.
GE Public Relations Knows Nothing About the Problems of Fukushima
“I called General Electric Corporate headquarters in Fairfield, Connecticut today to find out what GE, the designer of flawed reactors that blew up in Japan because of an earthquake and is now destroying he Pacific Ocean and the life bowl of Earth Mother. The number there is 203 373 2211. I initially spoke with Linda, who to my absolute astonishment, knew nothing of Fukushima. I kid you not Linda either acted as if she was ignorant of the disaster in which thousands of people died in Japan on 3/11 or was actually ignorant of it. Either way, the reaction speaks volumes to me.”
