Japan PM Naoto Kan On 3/11: Reactor 1 Melted Down In 5 Hours

Japan’s Leader on 3/11: Most don’t know, but Reactor 1 melted down in 5 hours; We almost lost 1/3 of nation due to Fukushima — Tepco: Reactor 3 melted earlier than reported, water went in wrong pipes — NHK: Investigation into how such massive amounts of radioactive substances were released (VIDEO) (ENENews, Dec 13, 2013):

NHK World, Dec. 13, 2013: New findings on Fukushima accident to be released [Tepco] says the early breakdown of a reactor cooling system, coupled with failed attempts to inject water into the reactor, likely led to the meltdown of the number 3 reactor […] water injections by fire engines started shortly after 9 AM on March 13, but they could have been ineffective because of leaks from the piping. TEPCO plans to disclose the findings to the public later on Friday. The utility says it will continue its investigation to find out why massive amounts of radioactive substances were released and how this happened.

Jiji Press, Dec. 13, 2013: TEPCO admitted the possibility that the failure speeded up the unfolding disaster at the plant.

Kyodo, Dec. 13, 2013: TEPCO […] said it has confirmed that water supplied by fire trucks flowed into some pipes not leading to cores at the Nos. 1 to 3 reactors.

Naoto Kan, Former Prime Minister of Japan, Dec. 12, 2013: (at 12:30 in) [People think it was March 12th but] the first meltdown occurred 5 hours after the earthquake […] (at 47:00 in) If you have a severe accident and it continues to grow and grow and grow in severity, then the consequences are enormous. If we consider what could happen in Japan, 1/3 of the land of Japan could no longer be used. 40% of the population might be affected, have to move. That is the situation that we were facing, the worst case scenario that we were facing and we escaped that worst case scenario by only a hare’s breath.

  1. All the factors point to this happening on 3/11/11.
    From Fukushima to San Francisco the Pacific Ocean distance is about 5400 miles. It is dead over 3000 miles out now, we have dead sea life showing up everywhere with horrible disease never seen before. Our star fish are goo, dead sea turtles washed ashore in Central America. Dogs that ate them died instantly. Our crab is gone, so are the sardines. Salmon is yellow.
    The food chain has been irrevocably destroyed. No kidding they had a full meltdown that day, and people will die in the millions.
    The first thing they did was to offer free vacations to tourists to go to Japan. In return, all they had to do was say how great Japan was doing. They offered 50,000 free trips. I don’t think that worked out well.
    Recently, they offered free rent to pregnant women to live in Fukushima.
    This is corporate greedy gut thinking.
    All the TEPCO and Japanese officials ought to be sent to live in Fukushima until they die. Fukushima can be the new Siberia. Let them suffer the horrors millions will endure before dying a dreadful death.
    I really appreciate how China deals with such criminals, they execute them………

  2. Now, they are saying Fukushima could be 3X worse than Russia’s disaster………who are they kidding? This is an ongoing disaster that will continue to get worse……..3 reactors are in meltdown, and it won’t just affect the northern hemisphere as this clown states…….it will get all of us.
    We may well be facing our own extinction.
