Michio Kaku agony of 3 simultaneous meltdowns


Michio Kaku, Mar. 18, 2014 (at 1:18:00 in): The agony of 3 simultaneous meltdowns in Northern Japan […] The accident is not over at all. A small earthquake will send the accident starting all over again. You will realize that the reactor is so radioactive workers cannot even get in for more than just a few minutes at a time. […] The next thing they want to do is insert cameras into the water to see where the melting is. It’s so bad, they don’t even have a picture of the melted core. We know it’s 100 percent melted. […] The agony is unending. […] Japan said we will go nuclear because we have no oil or coal, but there is a price you have to pay — that is, you sell your soul to the devil.

Fukushima Unit 2 Log


U.N. Agency: Fukushima Reactor 2 “burst” after fuel melted — Then radiation doses quickly hit highest levels of entire crisis for many places across region… went in almost every direction… then skyrocketed all at around same time (VIDEO)

United Nation’s World Meteorological Organization, updated June 2013: The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) [received] a request from the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) to assist them with the meteorological aspects of a dose assessment from the radiological releases from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. [...] Light rain was observed from the 15th to the morning of the 17th due to a weak low pressure system which moved north eastward off the east coast of Japan. In particular, rain was observed in the Fukushima prefecture during the night from 1700 JST March 15 to 0400 JST March 16 [...] corresponding with significant emissions. [...] winds were from the west [blowing any Fukushima releases over the Pacific] until the morning of 15th, but changed to a direction from north northeast [in direction of Tokyo] during the daytime of the 15th, the time when the reactor number two container burst. [...] After 1500 JST, the winds turned to a direction from east southeast, and then changed to north [blowing releases south].
Wikipedia on Fukushima Unit 2 reactor: An explosion was heard after 06:14 JST on 15 March in Unit 2 […] The radiation level was reported to exceed the legal limit and the plant’s operator started to evacuate all non-essential workers from the plant. […] Soon after, radiation equivalent dose rates had risen to 8.2 mSv/h […] Three hours after the explosion, the rates had risen to 11.9 mSv/h […] Japanese nuclear authorities emphasized that the containment had not been breached as a result of the explosion and contained no obvious holes. In a news conference on 15 March the director general of the IAEA, Yukiya Amano, said that there was a “possibility of core damage” at Unit 2 of less than 5%. [...] 27 March, TEPCO reported measurements over 1000 mSv/h in the basement of the Unit 2 turbine building, which officials reported was 10 million times higher than what would be found [TEPCO] retracted its report and stated that the figures were not credible [...] following the ensuing wave of media retractions that discredited the report worldwide, TEPCO [said it actually was] “more than 1,000 millisieverts per hour”, as originally reported, but the concentration of radioactive substances was 100,000 times higher than usual, not 10 million.
