    silly and rather impossible.but shows what an "in-depth-report" from TEPCO is in REAL:

    BULLSHIT

      *This* is why I don’t believe that mouse had anything to do with TEPCO’s ancient 1970′s era switching equipment:

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRAs-ur5xSE

      The rat died of *mental* shock when she saw the beat-up, old portable junk switchgear TEPCO was using to maintain control of three melted-down reactors and thirty years of used fuel.

      An arc flash is an explosion, not a spark. It can vaporize metal and easily generate temperatures of 19,000 C. You can see the vaporized edges on the equipment and spattered metal on the panels in TEPCO’s switch. An arc flash is nothing like natural lightening – it would never enter and exit the rat’s body leaving tiny scorch marks. Except maybe in TEPCO’s fantasy world of excuses.

        Thanks for the laugh. Shock treatment for rats. Where's the shock treatment when it is so badly needed for TEPCO executives? Ask Ronnie the Rat.

    Not buying the rodent story. Show me anything alive near that town besides the temporary workers.

      +1000. The radiation burns out everything when the levels are so high and when cheap, defective parts are used. The cooling systems undoubtedly need to be replaced, over and over again. The cost of decommissioning will bankrupt any country. And the radiation will kill off all the people, even far around the globe.

      We need to worry about huge cancer rates in all countries, not just Japan. It was 1 in 2 in the US even before Fukushima. Mining for any radioactive material is really mindless and criminal.

        True about the cancer rates and you are one of the best posters we've seen. But that is just ONE thing radiation does. Hosts of other illnesses, wrecking the food chain, escalating genetic mutations. What people most need to understand is BIO-ACCUMULATION — that the levels are permanent and building; and BIO-MAGNIFICATION — that every species up the food chain gets MORE contaminated and also that it is WORSE for the generations to come. Cancer is bad, but the wider ramifications are horrific.

      Actually, buying the story! First, it's such a bad story, that no one could make it up. Second, they said it was "a rat-like creature," maybe it was a bizarre mutation. But mostly, it speaks to suicidal despair — the outlandish reckless carelessness in the face of mortal danger. Well, there are a lot of people there whom we don't care what they do to themselves! — it's just outlandish what they are doing to US.

      What are they using over there? 100 volt systems? Not.
      That is either a burn from low voltage, (where is the other contact point) or it's a radiation burn. Maybe Mr. Rat was sleeping next to a little MOX chip? lol! For Heat? Because it looks like the sores on the seals only more severe.
      If that rat can take out a switch board that is switching the large voltages they are using, 3 phase ?, then I think even crossing one leg to neutral would mess up it's hairdo more than that one burn. Again, where is the other contact point. Was he an innocent bystander that got slagged?

    They should be studying and examining living Japanese children with such in depth concern.

      The few reports that get out are horrific: Like as of July 2012, 60% of the CHILDREN in the area had contracted DIABETES. But nothing said about ongoing testing and a massive need for insulin; and then NO reports about it. Untreated diabetes is a merciless killer. Then nearly half of the children (well, last count, and who knows if that was even accurate)have thyroid nodules, but most are forbidden any further exam for two more years. Like Helen Caldicott (who is a pediatrician) said, Japan is giving the most "despicable" examples of medical neglect that she has seen in her entire life.

    I suspected a fake mouse until I noticed the picture of the feces. Very thorough job on the part of TEPCO; the poo is indisputable. I will be expecting pictures of the corium blobs soon.

    instead they analyse the rat shit to see how burned it is.

    Test was positive for Poo-tonium.

    They should be more careful with those rodents. Look what the iranians deal with:

    "Assumed to be feces"? What does it taste like TEPCO?
