Fukushima Reactor Global Security Issue: Japanese Former Diplomat

The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant Number 4 reactor presents a security problem for the entire world, Mitsuhei Murata, Japan’s former ambassador to Switzerland said. 

Fukushima Daiichi plants are “not under control at all… and the situation with nuclear reactors in Japan is like vehicles being driven without a license,” Mr. Murata told a news conference at the foreign correspondents’ club of Japan on June 5.


Recently, people have expressed concerns about Unit 4’s spent fuel pool which stores more than 1500 rods. The unit would be too fragile to withstand an M7-class earthquake.

The Japanese government also thinks that the Unit 4 problem is critical, and are planning to move many of the rods from the pool in 2013.


Warning of the acute danger of Unit 4. at Fukushima Daiichi, Murata said that recent revised estimates by the Japanese government found that the probability of a 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Fukushima within the next three years is 90%. “But Unit 4 reactor, which was substantially damaged by the tsunami and subsequent explosion will not survive a 7.0 magnitude earthquake,” he said.

He pointed out “the nuclear village and nuclear dictatorship is exposed, and public opinion and their movements are strong.”


He concluded that “[…] The true cause for the present crisis is lack of ethics.”


“The true cause for the present crisis is lack of ethics”

This may sound like a simple concept, but often finer details can get in the way.

As commentator Warren Pollock recently advised, “There’s so much fraud in the system, there’s so many lies in the system, that we need not accept them. And then change your own personal conduct to address that, and that will be in your interests.”

  • Caught with their pants down, down on the ground.
    "…the nuclear village and nuclear dictatorship is EXPOSED…"

    I'm really not a gambler, especially with these odds.
    "…probability of a 7.0 magnitude earthquake in Fukushima within the next three years is 90%."

    Question: So… What do ya do?
    Answer: Lie your pants off!

    He concluded that “The true cause for the present crisis is lack of ethics.”

    I would conclude that "The true cause for the entire nuclear folly of making non-stoppable Death Machines is/was because of a lack of ethics from day 1."

    • I would not bet they have ANYTHING under control in three years. We are screwed.

      It's too bad this didn't happen in China.

      If you recall, the official who headed up food inspection and the president of the company that poisoned pets with a toxic additive in dog food, were executed for their actions and lack thereof.

      Justice will be served, unfortunely many of us won't be around to appreciate it.

      • andii

        Good god, if it happened in China, there would have been hardly any information coming out. Chinese internet is heavily censored, much so than in Japan. Anyway, there are busy building 120..200 reactors. I can't remember the exact number but it's not one or two I can tell you.

  • Sickputer

    "lack of ethics" is a kind way of saying the nuclear-energy dominated governments (not just Japan) have a total lack of moral compass. They are such whorehounds for money and power that they defecate on the world's supply of air, food, and water without any regard for this generation of humans or generations to come.

    Their sick pseudo-intellectual brains are obviously already mutanized…now they have bigger plans to mutanize everything that breathes on this planet. They are just as bad if not worse than the Nazis who experimented on Jews with horrible inhumane techniques. Nuclear Nazis are going to kill the future for normal humans. Get ready for these signs of impending death and mutantization:

    So what's instore for us? Keep harping on unit four as if unit three did not already create the worst case senario. Not much talk about the MOX in all our sox. Unit one was so bad they covered the thing up. Unit two had a coplete liquifacation of it's core. Yes let's talk about number four. Is it because it's visible, and the others were blown out of site out of mind.

    • ageezerofgiza

      Yes, it is safe to talk about about Unit 4 when you know nothing will happen nor can happen.

      • Tumrgrwer Tumrgrwer

        Is that because it has already happened? So these pumps are just talking points to pass the day and back ups are really not necessary.

  • Centaur Centaur

    There's no way to put the issue in clearer words. If no government, no supernational organization and no big commercial association on this entire planet listens closely to these alarm calls and reacts decidedly to solve the issue as fast as possible… it marks – at least – the end of all efforts of cultural and civilizing progression of the past ~8 millenia. A sad and disillusioning ending.

    Mr.Murata gets down to the real truth and issues "He concluded that "the lessons of Fukushima have reminded the whole world of the great principle for humanity. The possibility for unbearable consequences must be zero" and stressed the need for “the shift from priority of economy to priority toward life. The true cause for the present crisis is lack of ethics."

    How many of our worldly problems stem from the same causes?

      • Looks like an interesting read.

        I like these guys too:
        (where Chomsky hangs out)

        An oft-quoted and groundbreaking "public relations" (or 'communication management' as it is called in Europe) theorist today is James Grunig and if I read him correctly ethical communications (a two-way dialogic or rhetorical and ongoing 'relationship' between organizations and their publics) is of huge monetary and other benefit to companies and organizations.

        Successful (or 'excellent' as he calls them) organizations practice what is called "two-way symmetric dialogue" where the two ends – company and public – strike up a long-term 'relationship' rather than a top-down one-way dupe-the-public type of arrangement (think Hitler and company, also most governments these days).

        Quite clearly, Tepco has adopted a blatant one-way, unethical, wrong, lying, undemocratic, propograndizing, misleading type of communication model thinking it will benefit them and their publics in the long run.

        They have made a huge mistake. Most research – empirical and theoretical – shows that (miraculously) Golden Rule – based communication works best in the long run and saves companies reams of money in costs incurred dealing with activist groups, answering to employee complaints and responding to lawsuits.

        So, the Ambassador is dead right, Tepco has chosen an unethical communication model, and it's not doing them or anyone else any good.

        • J.Grunig's Asymmetrical and Symmetrical Models of Public Relations: Contrasting Features and Ethical Dimensions

          I know the term 'public relations' has a bad rap (they call it "communication management" in Europe – almost a branch of linguistics or rhetoric/discourse – which studies the way people converse or persuade) because PR is also involved in something called 'persuasion' but we're (Grunig, Dozier, Heath, Childers) talking something a little more wholesome here.

          Interestingly, ancient indigenous societies, e.g. The Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) Confederacy had ethics built into their constitutions (The Great Law of Peace) and were astounded at the trickery and lies perpetrated by their newfound 'compatriots', as they are today.

          Well, if trickery and lies can make this a better world I'm all for it. If it is making it worse, time to change the model to preserve what is left of this world. We instinctively feel that the ethical approach works better longterm, but somehow it lacks sex appeal or needs clarification, as Grunig has done.

          Otherwise, it's killing all of us, so I think it's best we find out what works in a big hurry and help the poor brainless, uneducated TEPCO (now transferred to the Japanese government?) to realize this.

    And out of all this, the U.S. seems to be doing nothing. Zero. They sent a navy ship towards japan in the first days, took a reading, then hightailed it out of there (to go wash off and take iodine).

    • Sickputer

      TBP sez.. "they [USA] sent a navy ship towards japan in the first days, took a reading, then hightailed it out of there (to go wash off and take iodine)."

      SP: The USS Ronald Reagan needs to be kept in the public eye lest those plutonium-contaminated sailors become lost and forgotten victims. Drenched with vaporized MOX fuel, they need to be tracked and inspected once a year for plutonium poisoning.

      See any officers helping them scrub the decks of the ship after it turned tail and ran from the deadly invisible plume of radiation. They scrubbed for TEN DAYS!

      300 sailors out of the crew of 5,600 were the scrubbers… See any respirators in use?

      Another report mentioned this inane naval advice for exposed personnel:

      "Officials expect that air crew members will continue to be exposed to increased low levels of radiation, so the Navy is telling helicopter crews to keep their sleeves rolled down and keep cabin windows closed when possible."

      SP: Yes, cloth can deflect tiny plutonium particles. But the vaporized particles from Unit 3 March 14 explosion is far more hazardous to lung tissue.

      If a huge nuclear-powered warship found it necessary to flee Japan when it was already 100 miles offshore.. what does that decision mean in relation to the Japanese decision to only evacuate people inside a 20 km radius? It means civilians are…

    … adding to my above comment, while contemplating about western democratical history: If freemasonry (in the offical sense according and pointing to their main doctrine) had any influence on decision-making on global scale, this wouldn't happen right now from my point of view. Because their main idea is (and ever was) to _build up_… not to _destroy_ society for the good of all.

    This video with Arnie is from 2011 ….At the beginning of May, Arnie was consistently in the alternative news about Fuku. Where is he now? Has he been taken out or did he just take off???? If anyone has any recent news from Arnie please post it!

    • I'm assuming he doesn't want to be the one to tell us we've cooked ourselves.

      After all his work, I wouldn't be surprised if he's taken off to a cabin in the woods or is preparing for an extended trip to New Zealand.

      I mean, after you've told the world that Pandora's Box has been opened, what more can or should you do?

      "One day, when Epimetheus lay sleeping, Pandora stole the key and opened the box.

      Out flew every kind of disease and sickness, hate and envy, and all the bad things that people had never experienced before. Pandora slammed the lid closed, but it was too late. All the bad things were already out of the box. They flew away, out into the world.

      Epimetheus woke up at the sound of her sobbing. “I opened the box and all these ugly things flew out,” she cried. “I tried to catch them, but they all got out.” Pandora opened the box to show him how empty it was. But the box was not quite empty. One tiny bug flew quickly out before Pandora could slam the lid shut again.

      “Hello, Pandora,” said the bug, hovering just out of reach. “My name is Hope.”"
