32 comments to Fukushima worker: “We are Kamikaze” — Public needs to realize that a very real danger remains at plant (VIDEO)
Sub-contractors. Good to know they have the best people… where’s the international nuclear emergency team?
They pay firemen a small fortune to sit around and play cards at airports all over the world, just in case there’s ever a plane crash on the runway (although 99% of air accidents are off-field) and they don’t even have a single team for this.
That they are, however, as seen in Russia, some lived after being exposed to tons. Its really how well you can recover as long as you don’t hit that tipping point. As for cancer, there is a good possibility nowdays, that the cancer victims here can get stem cell treatment. We can grow what gets cancer and replace. You need a new thyroid?, then grow it.
Are the Indian remains of Mohenjo Daro and Harappa, their sudden abandonment and the apparent discovery of an ancient site with a layer of radioactive ash the best available evidence for the possibility that our ancient ancestors possessed a highly advanced technology – which might have included atomic warfare?
Cleaning system unable to cope at Fukushima [Eire Region]
Jun, 19, 2011 12:01 AM – Mail on Sunday (England)
A SYSTEM to clean huge amounts of contaminated water at the site of Japan’s nuclear disaster was shut down yesterday just hours after it began full operations – because a component filled with radioactivity much more quickly than expected.
The system began full operations on Friday, but was suspended last night when workers noticed that radioactivity in one of 24 cartridges, which was expected to last for a few weeks, had already reached its limit within five hours.

LACEY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Federal regulators have been working closely with the nuclear power industry to keep the nation’s aging reactors operating within safety standards by repeatedly weakening those standards, or simply failing to enforce them, an investigation by The Associated Press has found.
Time after time, officials at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission have decided that original regulations were too strict, arguing that safety margins could be eased without peril, according to records and interviews.
The result? Rising fears that these accommodations by the NRC are significantly undermining safety — and inching the reactors closer to an accident that could harm the public and jeopardize the future of nuclear power in the United States.
Examples abound. When valves leaked, more leakage was allowed — up to 20 times the original limit. When rampant cracking caused radioactive leaks from steam generator tubing, an easier test of the tubes was devised, so plants could meet standards.

“The crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is still leaking and, judging from the experience at Chernobyl, Japan’s recovery won’t be measured in years, but centuries.” Watch the special Fallout! 13:04 Minutes http://simplyinfo.org/
I counted about ten workers, where are these thousands of workers???????
They aren’t at the plant. They show pictures of damaged walls etc, but where are the pictures of men on ladders, or working cranes???? Trucks arriving with construction material to build….or repair…..TEPCO lies again. They carefully show a film with folks energetically running around but there are only about 10 and they don’t have work belts on etc etc….7,000 men would be hard to hide from the cameras. I’m so tired of the bullshit.
You at the photo on the video before it starts to run. Is that fello in the red coat ten years old and what about the girl behind them? Are they working at the plant???? Or are those workers at the plant who go out and test children to see if they are beeping?
mainstream media does not cover something it is almost as if it never happened. Right now, the worst nuclear disaster in human history continues to unfold in Japan , U.S. nuclear facilities are being threatened by flood waters, the U.S. military is bombing Yemen, gigantic cracks in the earth are appearing all over the globe and the largest wildfire in Arizona history is causing immense devastation. But Anthony Weiner, Bristol Palin and Miss USA are what the mainstream media want to tell us about and most Americans are buying it.
That irritates me too! I think they do it to try and say….well we made it (some of us…they aren’t counting the ones that didn’t) through Chernobyl, and here comes another one….they are afraid to say the truth…Fukushima is the worst nuclear disater ever and getting worse every minute.
