    The video of this event shows a very quick, short, strong, single jolt. However, we must remember that this may be an accelerated or time-lapsed recording which may not reflect the way the quake actually felt: P-wave gradually followed by the increasing intensity of the S-wave. Anyway, if the tremor was able to shift the camera's position, it is bad news for possible effects to the fragile SFP.

  • German Report on Fukushima, Interview with ex PM Kan
    Excellent video, German reporters in Japan, investigating Fukushima.

    For anyone doubting how the Nuke Cartel operates, this is the smoking gun.

    The whole lies, report fabrications, regulatory capture, are laid bare in this sub-titled report. At minutes 11 and 16 ex Prime Minister Kan details in no uncertain terms how the Nuclear Village operates through lies, extortion, personnel insertions into government and then back into TEPCO.

    This is coming right from the top. This has been reviewed by a Japanese national who is also fluent in English and they agree that the translation is absolutely correct.

    Does anyone here know the actual status of SFP 4 and the work to shore it up? Not the hyperdoom late night guessing, but, what has been done so far and how stable the external trellises, scaffolding, walls, or whatever are at this point in time?

      Vic From Ore…If you're expecting an answer to that question, I can only suggest you'd be better off believing in the tooth fairy! No offense mean't.

    Here ya go.Got to be in this garbage somewhere….I… myself will keep to the "late night.."guessing"

      Thx, Heart of the Rose. Anything specific to SFP 4? Especially anything corroborated by people outside TEPCO? Hope i didn't offend.

    PS..It's all gonna get sorted by "hardening" the vents..ya know…LOLOL

  • New study finds Japan’s defenses woefully inadequate to protect against a major tsunami

    April 1, 2012 – TOKYO – Japan’s defenses against a major tsunami and the safety of its nuclear plants were thrown into further doubt after two official studies predicted much higher waves could hit and that Tokyo quake damage could be bigger than it was prepared for. The reports, carried in the media over the weekend, are likely to intensify the debate about whether to restart Japan’s 54 nuclear reactors, all but one of which are shut amid public fears about nuclear safety sparked by the Fukushima disaster in March 2011. One report said a quake as big as the one that rocked Japan in 2011 could trigger waves topping 34 meters (112 feet), almost double its previous estimate made in 2003 when it’s worst scenario forecast tsunami of no more than 20 meters (66 feet). The Cabinet Office panel which authored the report, revised its predictions after one of the biggest tremors on record struck Japan last year, setting off a tsunami that topped 20 meters in the worst-affected areas and triggering the world’s worst nuclear crisis in 25 years. “We won’t be able to contain …

    Fuku-quakes are happening on almost a daily basis. Guess we'll never be able to relax (for even a day). Ever.

    This one was close, just a couple of miles south of Daini, and quite shallow. If one was going to cause havoc, this could have been one that did it. Fortunately, it wasn't any bigger than it was.

      50 km is not shallow, and the EQ was 13.8 miles south of Fukushima Daini:

    The Hirono Power Station is in that area.

    What happened to the story about dark smoke rising..showing a Npp..that was neither Dai-ichi or Daini?

  • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

    Does anyone have a link to the photo? please post…

    Excellent article, Heart of the Rose, on more people thinking sanely. Thx. I thought Enenews also just posted an article about large piles of nuclear debris being burned in Japan through 2014. These are everywhere as i understand. Some in incinerators, others just open to the air. I imagine these would create both dark clouds of smoke as well as high releases of ionized radiation. I also "guess" 🙂 that they contain rubber, plastic, heavy metals, pesticides, various chemicals, etc., from houses, buildings, and automobiles besides radiation contaminated debris.
