  • Nuclear disaster response recommendations shelved 10 days after explosion

    TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The government shelved the Nuclear Safety Commission's proposal to evacuate residents around the damaged Fukushima Daiichi power plant and provide iodine to them after receiving a forecast on the spread of radioactive materials, government sources said Tuesday.

    The government determined that it would be too late to take such measures as around 10 days had already passed since the first of a series of hydrogen explosions occurred at the Fukushima complex, the sources said.

    The forecast was based on data from a government computer system known as the System for Prediction of Environmental Emergency Dose Information, or SPEEDI, designed to predict the spread of radioactive materials released in a nuclear plant accident. The prime minister's office received the first SPEEDI-based report on March 23, according to the sources.

    what kind of bs is this? Japan gov is trying to turn its own story around, so it would look like their decisions were legitimate. Disquisting, i knew it would come to this.

    This is exactly why i started to work on this webpage. To  have a record when they will finally try to paint them selves as saviours that did all they could to help the nation.

    Fukushima timeline > March 11:

    - Japan to evacuate residents near nuke plant
    -
    Six-mile exclusion zone placed around crippled nuclear reactor as radiation hits 1,000 times safe level

    Fukushima timeline > March 12:

    - Japan to distribute iodine among people

    - Possible Meltdown At Tepco Reactor   (this is the first official mention of a meltdown, or better, they knew right away, posted on Nikkei to inform the business community on whats happening)
    - and then the nuclear propaganda started: Officials Claim Positive Signs on Japanese Reactor

    but check this out... also published on 12.3. on Nikkei (article date has later changed to 13.3.)

    Meltdown Caused Nuke Plant Explosion: Safety Body

    The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) said Saturday afternoon the explosion at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant could only have been caused by a meltdown of the reactor core.

    ...

    So, this is just stuff from the first 2 days... now please explain to me, why them morons are now saying " The government determined that it would be too late to take such measures as around 10 days had already passed since the first of a series of hydrogen explosions occurred at the Fukushima complex, the sources said."  as if they didn't know the severity of the situation from the very begining.

    They "shelved the recommendations" with the sole intention of covering up the whole nuclear issue in case the things wouldnt turn out as bad as they did, a failed process we can observe daily with ever repeating cold shutdown mantra. 

    They are trying to say that all of the fukushima residents lives were the whole time depending only on what some slow ass 10 day number crunching software would put out?

    It is not our fault, it is the old processor and almost no freaking RAM?

    This is the excuse for a FAIL to protect people in all these areas?



    Lame try jap gov shills, you will not be excused beacuse you are trying to look even more stupid than you really are.
