Is Tokyo Safe, Japan Nuclear Crisis, Tokyo Radiation Levels

It might take nine months or more to fix the Fukushima plant

So, Japan admitted today, after more than a month of the disaster, that it could take up to (or couldn’t it possibly be more than?) nine months to fix the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima plant.

Reference: Japan admits it could take up to nine months to fix Fukushima plant.

Well, 9 months is a long time to allow radiations to continue leaking into the atmosphere and the Pacific Ocean. That’s a continuous emission of radiations for the remaining part of the year! And it’s all going to accumulate right here!

Further, notice that they say it could take up to nine months. I speculate that it might even take more. But well, that’s just a speculation. And why not, even what the TEPCO chairman quoted was for that matter just a possibility anyway, wasn’t it? Was there any hard commitment to that timeline?

And mind you, when they raised the severity level of the nuclear crisis from 5 to 7, and said that it was just 10% as bad as the Chernobyl disaster, someone was also quoted as saying that as the crisis progresses, it might eventually exceed the amount of radiations seen in Chernobyl.

So, I guess this adds up as a strong positive to the consideration to leave the country to avoid long term health hazards.

What do you think?


About Tokyo Nuclear Watchdog

I'm a foreigner living in Tokyo, Japan, and I have been impacted by the Japan Nuclear Crisis of March 11, 2011. Though the impact of the massive earthquake that was followed by an even more disastrous tsunami, which led to the nuclear crisis, was not as disastrous in Tokyo as it was around the Fukushima Nuclear Plants, there has not been sufficient data to prove that Tokyo is safe from nuclear radiation as is being portrayed by the authorities. This site aims at erring on the side of safety while it keeps a close watch on the crisis and how it affects those residing in and around the Tokyo (Kanto) region. Remember that the proper truth about radiation may only come out 5 or 10 years later when a classified file gets leaked out, but that will be too late for you to do anything about it if you were in Tokyo and had been through those radiation then (which as of this writing, is NOW). Do not believe the media. Trust your instincts, and make your own well-informed decisions about your safety. This site is here to help you, and your contributions are most welcome.
