TEPCO again fails to find leaks at Fukushima plant
June 12, 2012

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says a new method has failed to locate radioactive water leaking from one of the reactors.


Tokyo Electric Power Company said workers used an infrared camera on Tuesday to search for the leaks in the suppression chamber at the No.2 reactor.

It was hoped that the infrared images would reveal the leakage spots by showing the temperature difference between the water and the air.

But the images failed to show a big gap in temperatures.

    No sign of melted Fuel ? Take a look deeper in the earth mr.Tepcoman

    These helpless attempts are physically painful to watch.

    The fuel has left the building. What happens when they are forced to admit that the fuel melted down, through, and out of the containment in all 3 reactors? Will the world nuclear advocates offer to mobilize all their resources to invent technology to get the fuel back in containment? The reaction from the world is what is painful. Its big news when a senator looks at the site and says, "hey fuel 100' off the ground in a shaky building is troubling" what about when he finds out the fuel is now down through the plant and out in the 'wild' from 3 reactors? Maybe we should chip in and send him over again.

    So if the basement is FULL OF WATER, and the air is about the same temperature as the water, what does that mean?

    No leaks?


    You have got to be kidding me…

    That is like saying an ocean liner is half full of water on the INSIDE, and the captain reports;

    Full speed ahead, all conditions normal. No leaks to report.

    What did it cost to draw up all the pretty pictures and stick figures?

    A couple million bucks perhaps?

    Now they have an 'official' report that they can take to court and say;

    see; no leakie, all normal.

    I think it is better to Report about something you cant find as to Report about a full meltdown something like …uhhh we saw the melted fuel we are lost we can not do anything

  • I just received this prepper guide. It is outstanding. 500 pages.

    There are a number of ways our world can head to a "Bug out event"

    They always admit what they cant hide, long after it has happen. First they don't say anything, then they say a little something. And when I read the sentences – they always leave room for some other explanation. It is just propaganda lying.
    It is obviously so radiant that no one can enter. So the radiation comes from somewhere, from the fuel most certain. So the fuel made the building impossible to enter. And all the fuel is not at all safely contained. The temperature in the building is rather high, where from in the energy coming – from the fuel most certain. With this equipment they can film infrared, they have to follow where the temperature is high, it will lead them closer to the fuel.

    ugh… maddness.. A building that huge.. Water goes in.. it leaks out. Like taking a flashlight and hoping to find it… The entire company of TEPCO and Japan have on idea or clue what they are doing, experience or equipment.. they may have some money.. but no clue.
