Tepco Admits that Radiation Levels from Fukushima Are RISING

Fukushima Operator Admits 20% Increase In Radiation

JiJi Press – one of Japan’s largest news sources – reports:

Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Monday reported an increase in radioactive materials leaking from damaged nuclear reactors at the Fukushima … plant.

The total amount of radioactive cesium that leaked from the containment vessels of the No. 1 to No. 3 reactors reached 70 million becquerels per hour, up 12 million becquerels from the December level, the power firm said.

It seems that radioactive dusts were stirred up because plant workers went inside reactor buildings and removed rubble, TEPCO officials said.

While it is possible that the increased radiation is simply due to dust being stirred up, there is some evidence that the increase in radiation corresponds with recent earthquakes.

Or it could be due to the possible escape of nuclear fuel from the nuclear container vessels.

Indeed, a Fukushima whistleblower allegedly claims that radioactive fuel is coming out from beneath the containment building:

These [highly-radioactive] yellow concrete slags come out from under the building one after one. It means that the container vessel is melting like honeycomb at least – doesn’t it? Otherwise why would metal uranium comes out of there ?

    What a relief to know that the experts are right on to it and those in power would never keep the truth from us or tell any lies.

    Great news, just in time for the IAEA inspection team to get some first hand exposure so they can tell everyone that it is no big deal; of course they do not live there 24/7…

    When is the World going to wake up and smell the radioactive pollution from Fukushima and say ENOUGH?
