ROLLING UPDATE No.2 on Japan Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Disaster by Japan resident

[Ed. 6 April - Must read update - off-scale radioactive measurements found. Site workers doomed.] The nuclear disaster continues in Japan. It is unclear if there has been a full meltdown in any of the reactors, but the government and related ministries and commissions are saying that there has not been and that the situation is slowly coming under control. There is a definite move afoot to downplay what has happened at Fukushima No.1 Power Station in an attempt to ensure that the Japanese population do not do anything like demand the end of nuclear power in Japan. However, if you look at the update for April 6, you will see that the situation is still extremely serious/dangerous. Please look in again from time to time as I am updating this several times a day.

ROLLING UPDATE on Japan Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Disaster by Japan resident

I want to say 'THANK YOU' to everyone who has read the article, "Japan Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Disaster - A personal story about the next 100 years of human history," commented and given their support to the idea of a nuclear-free world. Here I want to reiterate the 'campaign' aim, introduce the campaign slogan - Say 'No to Nukes!' and then list all relevant links that so many people have sent in to me regarding this disaster and the problems of nuclear power in general. This entry will 'grow' as links and discussion are added (at the moment every 10 minutes). Please 'stay tuned' to the ongoing discussion here and please add links and any other information you feel is relevant to the comments section. If your link/info is important I will it edit into the main 'article'. Thank you and tell everyone to say 'No to nukes!'

Japan Earthquake, Tsunami and Nuclear Disaster - A personal story about the next 100 years of human history

"All the reactors are screwed and we are looking at the very worst situation right now. Even on the BBC those mysterious water puddles the TEPCO guys paddled in have 10,000 times the radiation levels. 10,000. That means the core reactor is leaking. The zirconium cladding tubes of the spent fuel rods are also cracked like broken egg shells. Reactor 3 with the MOX uranium and plutonium is responsible for the now much higher radiation levels (8 times last week - which was bad enough in itself). Vast tracts of northern Japan, including Tokyo and as far south as Osaka are going to be uninhabitable. Hokkaido may be ok, but too cold to support life without adequate cheap fuel."
