News about nuclear accident in Fukushima in April 2011
- I thought I'd escaped from Chernobyl – but I hadn't
Evacuated with other British students from Belarus in 1986, Catriona Munro was diagnosed with cancer three years ago. She feels more fortunate than those left behind
- Quake protection considered for No.4 reactor
The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is studying ways to increase earthquake resistance of the spent fuel pool at the No. 4 reactor.
- Thousands protest nuclear plants at Tokyo rally
About 4,500 people have rallied in Tokyo to call for the suspension of nuclear power plants. The demonstrators gathered at Shiba Koen in central Tokyo and adopted a resolution calling for all nuclear plants in the country to be suspended and a nuclear-free society realized.
- Fukushima Could Have Been Worse...And WILL Be
"I saw something really interesting today. I went to Google Earth (tm) and flew over Onagawa. The inlets north and south of the reactor and everywhere else I looked suffered enormous damage from the tsunami. Everywhere. But not even a stone was out of place at the Onagawa nuclear plant. The date on the map was 11 March, 2011. The picture of the plant probably came from Digital Globe one minute before the tidal wave hit - but they may be from last year. I'll wager it doesn't look like that today." The 'after' pictures show the disaster everywhere except at the reactor. I thought that was odd...so I looked at Fukushima Daiichi. The reactors are damaged - we have all seen the pictures - but the photo has been manicured.
- Beyond That Door is Death
Dr. Mark Sircus, Contributing Writer Activist Post Beyond that door is death. It’s death’s door and it has brought us a new hell on earth. What’s behind this door and several others like it is so hot, in terms of death, that its effects can be seen 10,000 miles away. Though thanks to the media we almost forgot about this and other similar doors and the nuclear meltdowns that are occurring right here right now on planet earth. Today you have to be a hound dog to sniff up any credible news about what is actually going on at that destroyed nuclear plant. It’s very scary how the media has clamped down on most of the news so it seems like multiple nuclear meltdowns are not a big deal.
- Austria calls for tough nuke power plant tests
Austria's environment minister says safety tests for European nuclear power plants must be mandatory and take into account the possibility of plane crashes or terror attacks.
- Thousands demonstrate near German nuclear plants
Thousands of people have demonstrated near several German nuclear power plants, demanding a speedy end to the use of atomic energy.
- Something Odd Is Happening at Reactor Number 4
The operator of the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is carefully monitoring the situation at the Number 4 spent fuel pool, where the water temperature is rising despite increased injections of cooling water.
- Atmospheric radiation leak underestimated
Data released by the government indicates radioactive material was leaking into the atmosphere from the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in early April in greater quantities than previously estimated.
- Professor Christopher Busby: Hydrogen Explosion Was Actually Nuclear Reaction, “People Who Ignore History Are Doomed To Repeat It”
Professor Christoper Busby, a leading critic of the Fukushima nuclear cover up, recently appeared on Russia Today with some startling information. Many witnessed the supposed hydrogen explosion in disbelief, wondering if they had just witnessed a small scale nuclear explosion. Now it seems at least one of the explosions may well have been a nuclear reaction. Professor Busby stated that he believes that there was some sort of nuclear explosion in the tanks that contain the spent fuel rods at the number 3 Fukushima nuclear power plant.
- Chernobyl recovery officer criticises Japan's efforts at Fukushima
In a rare interview on the eve of the 25th anniversary of Chernobyl on Monday, Col-Gen Nikolai Antoshkin said he was shocked at how poorly Japan had coped with its own nuclear disaster. "Right at the start when there was not yet a big leak of radiation they (the Japanese) wasted time. And then they acted in slow-motion," he said. The Soviets had evacuated 44,600 people within two and a half hours and put them up in "normal comfortable conditions" on the same day, he recalled. "Look at advanced Japan," he said. "People are housed in stadiums and are lying about on the floors of sports halls in unhygienic conditions."
- Fairewinds Calls for the NRC to Delay Licensing Until Fukushima Lessons Are Evaluated
Arnie Gundersen calls for the NRC to stop licensing unsafe nuclear power plants.
