The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster: TEPCO Officials In Washington Claim It Will Be 5 Years Before They Will Know Exact Shape Of Failed Reactor Cores!

I have been saying for a very long time that the situation with the failed nuclear reactor cores at Fukushima Japan is still very grim.  We have had the liars in both our governments and our Jewish controlled media still lying to the general public, putting forward false claims that the situation is under control.   The reality is that this disaster is still very much out of control, and that there is no chance in the foreseeable future of actually fixing this problem at all.  In fact, we will see radiation pouring out of control from that failed facility for years to come!

I want to present the following very important article from Platts online news service, at, entitled: "Fukushima Panel Told Some Details Will Take 5 Years To Learn".   As the title stipulates, the situation at Fukushima is not only out of control, but a true assessment of the shape and even the whereabouts of the melted cores will not take place for at least another 5 years, due to the absolutely deadly levels of radiation still spewing out at the failed plant.  I have that article right here in its entirety for everyone to see and judge for themselves, and of course my own thoughts and comments to follow:

Fukushima panel told some details will take five years to learn

Washington (Platts)--7Sep2012/452 am EDT/852 GMT

Key details of how the accident at Japan's Fukushima I nuclear plant played out have yet to be determined and may not be known for five years or more, when important parts of the plant are safer to enter, officials with the Japanese and US nuclear industries told a US National Academies review committee Thursday.

A committee of the National Academies is conducting the study, which is mandated by Congress, on behalf of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The committee held its second data-gathering session Thursday in Washington. The panel was established in March and information-gathering will continue through 2013, committee chairman Norman Neureiter said at the meeting.

A report to NRC and Congress is expected to be delivered in April 2014, Neureiter said.

Officials with Tokyo Electric Power Co., owner and operator of the Fukushima I plant, discussed the accident with committee members, saying that in hindsight, tsunami protection measures at the site were inadequate. The protection level was set at 3.1 meters (10.2 feet) above sea level when the plant was originally permitted in 1966, but that was raised to 5.7 meters in 2002, Tepco said in a presentation.

However, the tsunami on March 11, 2011 reached an estimated height of more than 14 meters, overwhelming the station's electrical distribution system and leading to a complete loss of power at four of the six nuclear units. Three of those units experienced melting of all or most of their nuclear fuel, resulting in explosions and radiation releases in the days following the tsunami.

A Japanese civil engineering society had discounted the possibility of a large earthquake and tsunami off the coast of Fukushima prefecture because of a lack of evidence of such events since the 17th century, Tepco manager Shin Takizawa said. A study in 2002 that suggested such an earthquake was possible and historical reports of a large tsunami in the area in the ninth century were under review at the time of the 2011 earthquake, but had not been confirmed, he said.

"In hindsight, if we were able to return to 2002 ... we would have taken different actions," Takizawa said.

An official with the Institute for Nuclear Power Operations, a US industry group set up to promote nuclear safety after the partial meltdown of a unit at Three Mile Island in 1979, said while the sequence of events at Fukushima following the earthquake is becoming increasingly clear, some details will take several years to learn. INPO produced a report in November providing a minute-by-minute description of events at the Fukushima units.

Steve Meng, manager of emergency preparedness for INPO, said that study showed the difficult circumstances under which Fukushima workers found themselves, without emergency lighting, critical instrument readings and power to operate valves, along with increasing radiation levels and a series of explosions as time went on. The first explosion, which damaged equipment that was being installed to provide emergency power, was "one of the key turning points for the event," Meng said.

The nuclear industry expects to learn "quite a bit more" about the accident in the next five or more years, INPO senior vice president Bill Webster told the committee. Information about the position of valves in a key cooling system and other details from within the reactor building will be discovered when those areas are safe to enter, he said.

Yasunori Yamanaka, manager of Tepco's nuclear safety engineering group, said following the meeting that one of the key pieces of information that will be learned in the coming years is the location and condition of the core of nuclear fuel in the three reactors that experienced meltdowns. Tepco believes the uranium fuel of unit 1 at Fukushima I almost entirely melted its way through the bottom of the thick steel reactor vessel and poured to the floor of the containment structure, eating through a portion of the concrete floor of that area.

The company plans to use cameras and other surveillance equipment to determine how much of the core of units 2 and 3 remain in the reactor, Yamanaka said. The company believes almost half of the fuel in those units, which maintained core cooling longer, melted, he said. It may take more than five years before Tepco can determine whether the fuel in those units remains in the bottom of the reactor vessel or also fell to the containment floor, Yamanaka said.

NTS Notes:  Why am I not believing the facts put forward by the Tokyo Electric Power Company, aka TEPCO to this panel?   TEPCO has lied to the public for almost a year and 1/2 since the original disaster, and I believe they are still lying now.  The old saying goes: Once a proven liar, always a liar....

To state that the melted cores went right through the reactor containment structures and onto the concrete surfaces below the reactors is absolutely appalling.  These melted cores can still go right through that concrete and into the Earth itself, and I do wonder if that has happened to at least one of the failed reactors.  These fools are lucky that a China Syndrome type of disaster has not happened, and I do wonder if that deadly scenario is still very much possible.

The bottom line, readers, is that we will see these failed reactors continue to spew their contaminants into the environment and into the atmosphere for at least the next 5 years, with no hope of a solution to this disaster coming any time soon.  I for one am sickened by the idea of 5 more years of deadly radiation spewing out of these failed reactors, and as a result, more people dying from the side effects of radiation poisoning, including Cancer...

Again, we should all demand the true facts about this disaster be put out for everyone to see.  The major countries of the world  should be concentrating on fixing this horrendous disaster immediately, instead of trying to destroy more nations through senseless wars of destruction elsewhere.  That time is long overdue.

More to come

yakuza runs the labor pool for the reactors..
israel set off the phony magna bsp camera aka gun trigger nuke inside defueled reactor 3 was it 3 it was the one that got blown up and now doesnt have a number anyway ...
jews also threatened toi nuke tokyo the same way .
its no shock the dimona kike team went home from japan a week prior to criticallity at fukashima..
so the jews and netanyahoo specifically was recorded threatening fukashima and jpas with a nuke prior to event ...allegedly over some 30 trillion in bearer bonds that israel was trying to extort from japan ,,and there was also a current of info about japan being forced into an alliance with korea etc ..
usa told israel if they sent a cruise missile at iran we would shoot it down ..russia ,china ,and some sane people left in usa defense dept (not many)have warned israel that if they nuke one more god damn place they will suffer payback ...
so the lousy kike bastards did fukashima and wtc and bali and port chicago etc ...and the use of DU is illegal and unconventional but whos listening anymore since these insane jews have skewed everything all to hell .. said...

it is very difficult to get a comment to stick on here nts .anyway of simplifying this for commentors and you might see a growth of comments ..
cortinas site is hard to leave a comment on as well or he just never posts them ..i gave up on his site a long time ago and citizen fitz site impossible to leave a comment ....hofflandia is easy to leave a comment ..real easy
on the capctcha are you supposed to type out the number as a word or as a number ..
post your eply here as my email addies are all borrowed from miserable people ..

Northerntruthseeker said... I would really like that as well..

Unfortunately.. I am always under attack by those who I call my "fan club" who try to put up garbage comments all the time filled with links and viruses..

Until I can come up with another alternative, I have to filter and scrutinize all comments... My apologies...

A September 11th Catastrophe You've Probably Never Heard About

When I read this article today it reminded me of Fukushima. They covered up this disaster for many years.
