Partial quote from Conclusion:


More than one year has passed since the Fukushima Dai-ichi accident occurred. This accident is a very severe one as shown by the facts: electrical systems lost their functions extensively due to the common external event of the earthquake and tsunami; severe accidents of fuel damage and core melts occurred simultaneously at multiple units; the accident affected a large area around the site; and more than 100,000 people are still leading painful lives as evacuees.The on-site situation is also quite severe. We internationally have no experience inaccurately understanding the state inside the severely damaged reactors, taking out damaged fuel from such reactors and taking steps for decommissioning, and it is supposed that it will take several decades to accomplish such work. It is also viewed that new technologies will be required for such works. Besides, many challenges remain in improving the reliability of measures, such as the presence of a large amount of waste and contaminated water, and the fact that many pieces of the equipment for circulation injection cooling system are temporally construction. In addressing these challenges, it is necessary for us to gather international knowledge and utilize it.”

Hey Barry, go to Fukushima with your little plastic bags mate. I think you’ll need about 150 trillion of them. DON’T bring the full bags back here. Take em to Mars. Personally.

Oh, and Barry: “This accident is a very severe one..” IS not WAS. It’s still venting radio-chemicals.

Further Quotes from the document: “The earthquake and tsunami on March 11 significantly affected many nuclear power
plants. Among others, at Fukushima Dai-ichi NPS, the measured seismic ground motion
exceeded the design-basis standard seismic ground motion Ss, causing damage to switching
yard equipment and the destruction of a pylon due to the collapse of an embankment, which
led to a station blackout.
Because the tsunami significantly exceeded the previously estimated height and
insufficient protective measures against a beyond-design-basis massive tsunami were in
place, total AC power supplies including emergency power supply systems and sea water
pumps at Units 1 to 4 were flooded over a wide range and damaged, causing loss of the
ultimate heat sink and cooling functions, resulting in a serious accident that ended up with
core melts at Units 1 to 3 and a large release of radioactive material.”

After decades of assurances by nuclear experts that reactors have defence in depth and could not behave as SL1 and Fukushimam Diiachi did, the Japanese government reports above that the accident was caused in large part because a power transmission pole of the national grid fell down. This resulted in loss of power.

Further, despite decades of controversy over the adequacy of Emergency Core Cooling Systems, the Fukushima Diiachi reactors shows in fact that these systems in fact do not work. The Fukushima Reactors are fitted with steam powered ECCS turbine pumps which do not require ANY electricity to operate. Yet these pumps did not work!!

The reason for this is not discussed. The only disclosures regarding this is taking place in the public Forum at the GE website. The people asking the questions are nuclear reactors workers.

  1. CaptD Says:

    Great summation of most of the problems still coming from Fukushima; left unsaid is the PUSH by the nuclear Industry to keep building more reactors for anyone that has the money, they are in complete Nuclear Denial*…

    What a Nuclear Waste!


    The illogical belief that Nature cannot destroy any land based nuclear reactor, any place anytime 24/7/365!
