#Fukushima Update: Power Back On in Reactors 1 and 2

(From various Japanese papers)

TEPCO doesn't know yet what caused the power outage in the Reactors 1 and 2. The power stopped for these reactors from 2:20PM to 5:30PM on June 8.

TEPCO plans to open the double door to the Reactor 2 reactor building after they install the air filtering system and run it for several days to "reduce" the amount of radiation inside the reactor building. The same exercise that they did for the Reactor 1 reactor building.

The air filtering system is scheduled to start operating on June 11, which happens to be the day when big "anti-nuke plant" rallies are planned throughout Japan.

In the meantime, the president of TEPCO, Masataka Shimizu, verbally scolded (without any penalty) the head of Fukushima I Nuke Plant, Masao Yoshida, for not stopping the seawater injection on March 11 as agreed at TEPCO and not reporting it to the TEPCO headquarters.

"Tatemae" at its best (I should say worst.)

My friend,

Did you read these 2 articles:

Secret Weapons Program Inside Fukushima Nuclear Plant?

The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster: What Happened on "Day One"?

They seem to give credit to the troublesome questions raised by Jim Stone on the very existence of a 9,1 earthquake.

Merci. Dominique

When Yoichi Shimatsu says:

"On the first day of the Fukushima disaster, Tepco reported that reactors 1, 2 and 6 were operating at the time of the quake and tsunami, and that the other 3 reactors were empty of fuel rods for periodic maintenance. 1, 2 and 6 were designed by GE, old model Mark-1.

Then reactor 3 blows and burns, and without any correction to the first report, Tepco then says 1, 2 and 3 were operating and the others were down."

Is this true?

@ Dominique,

It probably is true. TEPCO has issued so many self-contradictory statements = everyone sees their offerings as attempts to confuse.

Weapon material production? Certainly not impossible.

TEPCO probably does not mind if conspiracy theories are developed due to their decision to confuse.

Dominique, many Japanese in Japan are puzzled by this person, and trying to figure out who he is, as he seems to be treated as some credible Japanese journalist. He seems to be a Hong Kong-based writer, writes only in English. The last time he appeared in the media (however fringe) was back when Omu Shinrikyo cult was active.

I think he is simply rewriting the information at Jim Stone's site. Or Jim Stone rewriting his.

His information about the reactors is wrong. Reactor 6 is not Mark-1 but Mark 2. Reactors 1-5 are Mark-1. I don't remember TEPCO reporting 1,2 and 6 were operating, but I could be wrong...

Also, the only reactor without fuel rods in it is Reactor 4. In 5 and 6, even though they were in the scheduled maintenance, fuel rods were already inside the RPV because they were getting ready to start again. That info was duly disclosed by TEPCO, with some regrettable delay (and also no reporters bothered to ask).

Thank you so much. It is indeed a very complex topic and surely, we do not want to be diverted from the main topic, meaning the struggle for decontamination of the biosphere and the human race.

But stil, my focus is also the struggle against the militaro-industrial predators.

And, as in the case of the so-called 9/11 event, pictures and videos are not matching the facts!!

Discrepancies everywhere.

We need also to promote the decontamination of the social tissue.

I never quoted anyone. My work is original, and very well researched.

Unlike other media people, I actually have a strong knowledge in the subjects covered, which helped me nail it dead on. I knew from the start what was possible or impossible, and as a result knew how to get answers.

It all "seems" true because it is.

My purpose for writing was to make the "elite" worry before trying something like this again.

Jim are you high? You didn't research a damn thing and your knowledge on the subject couldn't fill a thimble. The Japanese offered Iran enrichment with the international communities blessing because they are trying to get Iran's fully functional domestic enrichment program shut down. The US was one of the programs biggest supporters. As a matter of fact Russia and France offered Iran the same service with IAEA blessings. Iran has declined all offers because they don't need outside help. Why didn't Israel attack these other countries? It probably has a lot to do with the fact that Israel didn't attack anybody over enrichment.

"The offer was made, with US backing, in December during a Tokyo visit by Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili, the Nikkei business daily has reported, although Japan's government has not yet confirmed the plan."

"Iran has so far failed to take up an IAEA offer under which Russia would enrich its uranium and France would process it. Tehran this month said it had begun enriching uranium itself to a higher level".

@robbie, I fished out one post from the SPAM. Google filter is almost purposefully NOT LEARNING, but it's not just here. Tons of Blogger users want to disable Google's SPAM filter, and are unable to do so.
