    No footage of reactor Three!

    All close ups of number 4.

  • BreadAndButter BreadAndButter

    Bloody hell. There is NO WAY this is going to be…you know…it's going to….

  • Kevin Kevin

    Gee, reactor 4 had no fuel and was not operating.

    Amazing the lid is still on eh?

    Capturing all that, air.

    We all feel safer now.

  • Heart of the Rose Heart of the Rose

    …does this mean NO containment?..I know I'm hard headed..but I fail to see containment..
    Just saying…

    • Hogweed

      Reactor 4 was supposedly unloaded for maintenance and the "live" core stored in the fuel pool outside of any real containment. According to the German Government report the ratio of Ce-137/Cs-134 in the fallout indicates that a large amount of this core was exposed to air and spewed its guts all over the planet.

      That's right. They were going to put a tarp or something over it, but I didn't see anything like that in the video. Just twisted ruins.

  • Kevin Kevin

    The issue remains however that the original NHK story, posted a few posts ago by admin, stated that "reactor #3 showed a 'distorted' and exposed steel structure."

    What that means is anyones guess. Especially when the footage is not shown but rather a close up of the lid for a non functioning reactor.

    The real deal for me is that TEPCO undoubtedly has footage of the reactors and adjacent pools. IF that footage showed rods in tact and nice flat cold corium pancakes, they would show it.

    However it if did not they would not.

    • Hogweed

      Yes NHK stated "The aerial footage shows that the No. 3 reactor building has been distorted by a hydrogen explosion.

      The yellow cover of the nuclear containment vessel has been exposed in the No. 4 reactor building, where the walls were ripped out by another explosion. A person in a yellow worksuit is walking on the 5th story."

      So they clearly know the difference between 3 and 4 but did not show any close-up footage of 3 despite describing it.

      • aigeezer aigeezer

        "A person in a yellow worksuit is walking on the 5th story." I was surprised to see such a person in the video. His presence seems to contradict some of the claims made about ongoing fires in building 4 (as I understand the situation).

  • eatliesndie eatliesndie

    this is very frustrating! This footage is only shown for purpose of propaganda.

  • Replacant Replacant

    No images of reactor 2 as well, it would be interesting to see high res images of reactor 4 sfp as well as 2 & 3. Weird seeing the boats still where they washed up, and the madness that is paving the ocean floor, almost too ridiculous for words.

  • rdw rdw

    I wonder why every fukushima footage looks like a 2005 youtube clip.
    Are the HD handycams too expensive or what?
    I bet TEPCO uses 4k equipment to get every little detail of the reactors from the distance…

  • PoorDaddy PoorDaddy

    So….They've been pumping a gazillion tons of water in one hot hole or another for damn near a year, and we're supposed to believe all that water is in those drums?

  • I believe that the amount of waste stored there indicates they had NO intention of disposing of it. Just let it stay there and let the next generation (or more) do it.

    Always good to throw in the HAARP factor huh.

  • I just finished reading Wikipedia #3 'official' version of events. It says total radiation released from Fuku is 10% of Chernobyl and

    #3 was ONLY a hydrogen explosion, NOTHING ELSE.

    The talk page is interesting too

    There is an active, ongoing struggle to have Busby and other dissenting opinions REMOVED by calling them quacks, frauds, etc.

  • It is sad when industry 'experts' can have everyone else silenced and squashed, on PBS, in Wikipedia, and practically everywhere else, except for EneNews

  • PoorDaddy PoorDaddy

    As long as there are lots of enenews posts all "HAARPed" up, 9/11 truthed, Moon landing was produced in Hollywood, the Illuminati is eatin our lunch and UFO's are comin to save us, the powers that be are happy we're here and ranting. IMO if we actually stuck to Fuku, Enenews woulda been hacked, trashed and exploded by now…..not sayin all that other shit ain't real, don't want to start a shit-storm about HAARP, just sayin PTB don't see us as a viable threat with all our peculiar (to them) little side trips.

      Good one PoDaddy.

      O.K., soldier back in rank n' file! 🙂

      Thats the classical disinformation tactic, if anyone protests call them a conspiracy nut, and any experts not drinking the radioactive koolaid is a fringe/mad/quack scientist.

      Best to look at the official reports and see if they match up with real world science and history. The facts that areas of Chernobyl labeled too contaminated to live are lower than Fukushima towns being repatriated. That the limited tests on children have shown thyroid tumors at an much higher rate, food supply was not protected, workers are being exposed to deadly levels of radiation and will get sick.

      A couple of ideas to monitor, though I'm not sure how, would be high income people leaving Japan, conventions, events, shows concerts being cancelled, companies moving (there was a notice about 4 big companies relocating their HQ) and to chart illness and cancer rates in Japan, Korea, US, Canada from before and now and years into the future. That way we could have empirical evidence of the effects of this catastrophe once MSM wakes up.

    I hope you know that what is really stored inside those steel containers is really called "Liquid Cancer".

    Surely they will figure out a way to legally release this liquid into our world's environment and ecosystem soon.

    It only took science around 60 years to trash this entire planet called Mother Earth!

    Shut them down. Shut them all down quickly before its to late.

  • AGreenRoad AGreenRoad

    There is absolutely NO INFORMATION about what is inside of those tanks.

    How much total radiation is in those?

    What kinds of radioactive substances are inside of them?

    To what standards are those tanks built?

    Are they earthquake proof?

    Are they terrorist proof?

    Are they anything more than just plain old water tanks?

    What happens if they burst, leak, or are attacked by terrorists?

    Is there a backup system? NOT….

    Where is all of the high level nuclear waste taken out of the water, and where is it? How much radiation is there of that type?

    What are the supposed 'journalists' doing?

    Why are they ignoring all of the obvious questions that human beings have?

    Are they all brain dead?

    Are all real journalists extinct?

    I have never seen a story covered worse than this one.. all of those thousands or tens of thousands of GLOBAL newspapers, TV stations, magazines, and internet sources of information and not one little peep about what is REALLY going on.

    Absolutely NO QUESTIONS about it that really matter…

    Journalism is dead and gone, or so it seems.

    Corporations have really taken over or people in the news industry has really dumbed down to the point where the average IQ of a news journalist or investigative reporter is like a gnat.
