Dalej o Fukushimie

Czas na update z Fukushimy, wiadomosci z ostatnich ca. 2 miesiecy. Zaznaczam, informacje, choc prawdziwe, nie sa do konca obiektywne. Mozna je rowniez traktowac jako rebuttal do pojawiajacych  sie w polskich mediach doniesien o Fukushimie, sprowadzajacych sie do tego, ze jedyna  przyczyna wypadku bylo tsunami, ze nikt nie zginal w wyniku napromieniownia i ze wobec tego atom jest w 100% bezpieczny i trzeba go jak najszybciej aplikowac do Polski.

1/W kwietniu, szefostwo Tepco drugi raz bodaj, przyznalo sie do uchybien, ktore staly za katastrofa z 11 marca 2011 roku. W specjalnym raporcie mozna przeczytac

"Tokyo Electric Power Co. acknowledged in a report Friday that it was not prepared to deal with the earthquake and tsunami that ravaged northeast Japan in March 2011 (...)",  i dalej
"TEPCO’s equipment and safety measures were insufficient and that the meltdowns should have been avoided (...)"


inny wycinek: "(Tepco)  deserves most of the blame for the country’s nuclear crisis, in its strongest remarks about its own shortcomings. ", szef Tepco Hirose mowi: Our safety culture, skills and ability were all insufficient,”.

2/Kilka razy doszlo do przerwania dostaw pradu w zniszczonej elektrownii, do basenow chlodzacych zuzyte paliwo, raz, czy dwa gryzonie (szczury) wywolaly zwarcie instalacji elektrycznej. Wypowiedz Shunichi Tanaka, szefa regulatora NRA: 
Fukushima Daiichi is still in an extremely unstable condition, there is no mistake about that,. (...)We cannot rule out the possibility that similar problems might occur again. Whenever a problem occurs, it halts the plant’s operations and delays the primary goal of decommissioning the plant.”

3/Doniesienia, nie takie znow czeste, o warunkach pracy w elektrowni, chodzi zatrunionych przez Tepco i posrednie firmy podwykonawcow:

"A dinner of boiled vegetables and 3.3 square meters of floor space for sleeping—those are the harsh conditions awaiting laborers who undertake government-mandated decontamination work necessitated by the nuclear accident at Tokyo Electric’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture. In some cases, workers are basically laboring for free when taxpayer-funded danger pay is excluded from their pay packets."
I wasn’t treated like a human being,” said a 59-year-old man from Aomori Prefecture who engaged in decontamination work in Tamura City for about two months from September of last year. He and three other workers were made to sleep in a tiny 13-square meter bungalow. He was also shocked when served his first dinner. “The only side dishes to go along with a bowl of rice were boiled eggplant, bean sprouts and bell peppers.”

4/Relacja, troche spozniona, w druga rocznice wypadku, o zyciu w Fukushimie i o tych co oposcili prefekture.

wybrane fragmenty:

"According to one former Fukushima resident, however, there is something very much amiss in the prefecture. An uncomfortable air of forced self-assurance pervades many towns, and the general message of “all is well” is repeated ad nauseam, with those who go against the grain met with disdain and reproach."
Komentarz o falling into a “wartime-like” state where people must join the general consensus or risk being seen as potentially harmful to society

Despite evacuating Fukushima in the summer and coming to live in Yamagata Prefecture, I make occasional trips back to the area. I have come to be feel quite alarmed by the way of thinking and the overall feeling in the air within Fukushima, and I feel that these attitudes have become more and more common in recent times. From doctors and hospital staff to schools and city officials, the message being repeated over and over is that Fukushima is safe, so much so that I have come to feel that, if I didn’t go along with it and join in this way of thinking, then I would simply not be welcome there."

The government has created an environment wherein people are going about their daily lives, all the time wondering whether their child will develop cancer or leukemia, yet conditioned not to breathe a word about it. It’s like living in wartime Japan again.”

"A U.N. nuclear watchdog team said Monday that Japan may need longer than the projected 40 years to decommission its tsunami-crippled nuclear plant and urged its operator to improve plant stability."
The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency team, Juan Carlos Lentijo, said Monday that damage at the Fukushima Daiichi plant is so complex that it is “impossible” to predict how long the cleanup may last.
As for the duration of the decommissioning project, this is something that you can define in your plans. But in my view, it will be nearly impossible to ensure the time for decommissioning such a complex facility in less than 30-40 years as it is currently established in the roadmap,”

"Radioactive cesium levels exceeding 100,000 becquerels per kilogram were measured in mud accumulated at the bottom of swimming pools at two high schools in and around Fukushima city. "
