Follow-up to: Fukushima gov't deleted radiation forecast data starting day of quake -- Can't confirm who did it

Title: Mystery of lost Fukushima radiation emails ‘a major cover-up’
Source: RT
Date: March 23, 2012

[...] ­It appears that in March 2011 the Fukushima Prefecture requested the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) to send emails with the radiation data registered in the first five days after devastating tsunami.

The System for Prediction of Environmental Emergency Dose Information (SPEEDI), which was responsible for analysis, sent emails to Fukushima Prefecture government, but they have all disappeared. [...]

“At the time, everything was in a state of confusion. We can’t confirm who deleted the emails,” an official at the prefecture’s disaster management headquarters said, as cited by enenews.com. [...]

And the excuse that emails were deleted because of lack of space on servers, [Asia Times Correspondent Pepe] Escobar says, is “probably for the late ’80s – early ’90s, but not for 2012.”

    They're just laughing at all of us; not just their own people. It's astounding that no one's been arrested! So obvious that the law enforcement agenda has been usurped by organized crime; here as well…

      Hi AFTERSHOCK

      I don't think they care about us to even laugh at us.

      No one will be arrested, it was a natural disaster.
      Even though, they built and allowed dangerous Nuclear Plants, they knew there are Earth Quakes, Tsunami's, important information with held, and so on and so on.

      By the people and for the people, is for the few who run things.
      We are losing are rights left and right, laws are being change.

        @WindorSolarPlease: aside from "No one will be arrested, it was a natural disaster.", I agree with you. They've been hiding behind the fact that it was a natural disaster that led to the other failures. But as-if those failures weren't enough, they're not even bothering to make – any – effort to ensure the public's safety now. Both national and international responses are basically non-existent! It's as though they sat around a table behind closed doors and decided that the scale of this catastrophe far exceeded their means to respond; hence their impotent response. So we're seeing incompetence range from the technical planning level to every-other level of oversight. When this flaccid response is eventually revealed to the world public (and it will be), the nuclear power industry will loose whatever steam it generated (couldn't resist)…

    It is amazing how an ISP can track and identify a downloaded song but not an email. I guess it again goes back to profit and loss: emails that is. How bogus.

    I agree that this is the japan's culture to hide the true just like they did after the second world war. They just kill too many innocent people during the world. Let Japan die quietly that may be the way for them to pay back. amen!!

      Hi dear jones

      Sorry can't agree with you >> Quote: Let Japan die quietly that may be the way for them to pay back. amen!!

      We are talking here about the people, the children, this is their home…This is a horrible disaster effecting so many and also North America and probably beyond. This is horribly sad.

      As far as pay back time, what country is without blemish? You say Amen, I say Amen to No casting stones.

          Hi dharmasyd

          I think you misunderstood..I do not agree with a corporation who builds anything this dangerous. I do not agree with officials who allow these dangerous things to happen putting a country and it's people in danger. I do not agree with lies, deception, and cover ups that all Governments do. These actions are unacceptable.

          I do think what has happened to Japan, the home of so many, the people, and the effect that will happen in other countries, is horrific.

          The last thing I want is any country to die. I do not want the people to suffer or loose their home, because of greed and corruption.

      @dear jones:

      I better take it as the results of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds.

      This kind of Collective Unconscious in Japanese society, as well as what happen in Chinese society, and Germany society, and many others, is the real reason for all the tragic events on this earth.

      The Madness of crowds finally die with those dictators.

      The most sad part in this Fukushima disaster is that we just found the same Japanese society as WWII,and it means it has just never be really deaf-ted 70 years ago.

      But in this CASE OF NUKE DISASTER, THE WHOLE WORLD IS PAYING BACK!

    they can track your food preferences when you use a debit card, listen to your ambient background through your laptop's microphone (Google), and can hustle your titanium reinforced knee through TSA…but lose emails ? Come on!!! Google never ever lets go of the data they have mined–ever. Cover up?

    Good to see Pepe on the file.

    Quacks like a cover up eh?

    Well, oddly this is exactly what we discussed the NRC did, and proved on these pages in explicit detail! Yet no story.

    The government covered up the extent to which we are being exposed, not only in Fukushima, but the remainder of Japan and the west coast of the North America (and inland).

    We have the proof. Case closed.

    Time to end this gong show.

    Everyone is well aware of corruption of government..
    It is usully just shaken off with a laugh.
    However..it think it is a very rude and frightening awakening for the Japanese people to find out the extent of the cover-up..and their government's willingness to protect big business over the needs of the people.
    I feel tremendously sorrowful for them…

    "Usually"…That's how it is here in the US…How many times have I heard.."That's the way the game is played"?
    Government officials lie..
    It seems that most governments ..all over the world..have abandoned the people.
    It can not work out this way…life is not a game.
    And for those that can not see beyond the game…know…that we are playing for "keeps".

    • The reality here is that this bubble in corruption is really just a bunch of bloated governments fighting for their own survival, for their Power, Privilege, and Pensions, and they will go to the wall–whatever it takes. It could get really ugly.

    We can't be all that surprised that this has happened. What will really be disappointing it that when somebody eventually recovers those emails nothing will be done about it. Nobody will be held accountable. This is not the first time the government has spent tax dollars on something that by their own inaction is rendered useless.

    Think of all the disaster planning that sits on shelves and is not implemented when needed. For example the USA's plans for what to do if a major hurricane stuck New Orleans. A study was done, the problem areas were known before Hurricane Katrina struck a few years back. The disaster unfolded just as they knew it would. People died, lives and property were lost that could have been prevented. Has anyone gone to jail, has anyone been held accountable, No.

    Does anyone know if the USA has a similar system to the Japanese's SPEEDI system to predict the path of radioactive plumes?
