Japan nuclear group says vital info still has not been released, such as temperatures of the molten nuclear fuel and lower section of pressure vessels

Nuclear accident disclosure, Japan Times, July 8, 2011:

The Atomic Energy Society of Japan […] issued a statement criticizing the government, Tokyo Electric Power Co. and other related institutions for delays and insufficiency in their disclosure of information concerning the accidents at Tepco’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant […]

Since the Atomic Energy Society of Japan is regarded as close to Japan’s nuclear power establishment, the criticism bears importance all the more. […]

The following point is especially important. The society notes that there is the possibility that the damage to people’s health from radiation exposure has increased because the government, Tepco and other related institutions did not properly disclose information on the status of the nuclear accidents and the environmental contamination by radioactive substances. […]

The society notes that such vital information as the temperature of the lower section of the pressure vessels, the volume and temperature of the coolant water in the lower part of the pressure vessels, and the temperature of the molten nuclear fuel have yet to be released. […]

    “The society notes that such vital information as… the temperature of the molten nuclear fuel have yet to be released.”

    When they find it, they’ll let you know.

      A better question to ask is WHERE is the nuclear fuel. We already know it has been a melt through (which is RARELY even mentioned in the MSM if at all)… so where is the fuel? and how are we ever goign to get to it (since it is not contained at all, and extremely radioactive).

      How close is it to groundwater – is the question that should be asked right now – not what the #$%@ing temperature is. Once any of the three or possibly four molten masses of fuel hit groundwater its G.O. for what-ever geography is in the watershed of that groundwater system. It’ll be decades of continues fresh water radiation.

      WHERE IS THE FUEL???

    Wonder what Arnie will have to say about THIS today. Can’t wait.

    They won’t tell you cause they know you guys wouldn’t dare to protest in the open.

    • Whoopie Whoopie

      Yeah…we’d get MOWED DOWN here in the states. Our country has turned into one of the scariest in the world. Notice I said ONE of the scariest. I know there are many others but our police forces have turned into SWAT TEAMS, the spying operations etc have made PROTESTING next to impossible. It’s not like in the 60’s 70s. Those days are long gone. πŸ™

        I saw a documentary last year which was about the fabulous guys protesting against deforestation in CA by living in trees…they said that these protesters are now declared “eco-terrorists” and showed one who was sentenced to 20 years in prison to set an example.
        That film was the tipping point for me to be out in the streets rallying. i thought: “If there are people accepting a 20 yrs. sentence for their beliefs, what do I do at home? Bottoms up!”
        Made me feel ashamed, really.

          Oh God. That is SICK! They’ve got us where they’ve wanted us for decades. Too worried to speak out, cowing down like little sheeple. Our only hope is to keep spreading REAL INFO on the www. But once they take that away (they might) we’re screwed.

      Take out ur guns whoopie!

      • Whoopie Whoopie

        Just like Outnow at HP said yesterday. Both parties are focusing on the very things they know American’s LOVE (guns, sex etc) never ever talking about what’s REALLY important. America has lost any resemblance of what it once was. We are a country of uneducated Bumpkins who will follow each other over the cliff. Sounds like Japan is full of them too, per statements by you guys yesterday. Makes me want to scream:
        WAKE THE HELL UP!!

    Yah, nuclear group must’ve been reading our comments for the last 3 months, finally.

    Does anyone know just how the Chernobyl accident was theorized to have a 3 to 5 megaton explosion potential if corium got into the water-filled concrete chambers of the basement?

    Surely this was not from a steam explosion, which is hard to envision, though Mt. Saint Helens was just such a thing, basically.

  • americancommntr

    Shiite Muslims, imagine if one of the melted down reactors did that and blew the whole site, lock, stock, barrels, and all the fuel and contamination, up into the sky.

  • americancommntr

    Perhaps it is time someone with scalar electromagnetic weapons, if such actually exist, performed an operation to pull heat and energy out of the site and cool it down that way.

  • americancommntr

    If Fukushima is like Chernobyl in that way, the whole site could be a 3,400 ton global dirty bomb.

    • ocifferdave

      probably terrorist organizations are inspired by Fukushima. what a big payout they must be thinking if they could hit one of the nuke plants

      • americancommntr

        They probably are. One good thing about Islam, there is a high rate of illiteracy in many countries.

        I use that term “Shiite Muslims” not in any kind of address, but as a euphemistic expletive for a four letter cuss word.

    A newscaster somewhere (NHK perhaps) talking about the latest problems at no. 3 re the failure to connect the nitrogen supply said, if I remember correctly, “they have GOT TO get connected by 17TH JUNE (I’m pretty sure that was the date). I could kick myself now for failing to note the link and the mins/secs into the bulletin. πŸ™ If I find it again I’ll pass it on. But what’s with that 17th JUNE date? Why did she mention that date specifically? Are they trying to prepare the ground for a ‘worse case scenario’ announcement?

    The most telling gap is no information on neutron levels inside dry well, containment vessel, or pressure vessel, or building. Neutrons will be present if the fuel has reached unplanned criticality. (Much more than the little due to plutonium isotope decay.) This lack of information tells me that they have something to hide.

  • americancommntr

    Right, just 98% of them.
