Going to the region of Fukushima with protection clothes - with protective clothes - nuclear engineer Yukitero Naka

                "Sperrzone Fukushima"
Passing a ghost town in the "prohibited zone of Fukushima"


To protect us from radioactive dust and to prevent us from being recognized by the police we are wearing protective clothing (12sec.).

The contaminated area around the destroyed Japanese nuclear plant is a forbidden zone (21sec.).

We are meeting with a man who wants to bring home the message about what is really going on (26sec.).

Yukitero Naka is the boss of an engineer's office which has worked in the Japanese nuclear industry for decades, also in Fukushima (40sec.). We pass the checkpoint unrecognized (50sec.). Workers return in buses after their deployment in the nuclear ruin (53sec.).

Many signs indicate that the catastrophe on the 11th March is only a foretaste of what could occur in Japan and the world, warns Yukitero Naka (58sec.). to understand the danger we must understand the past (1min.7sec.).

Title: "The Fukushima Lie" (1min.22sek.). "A film by Johannes Hano." (1min.27-32sek.).

Filmtitel: Die Fukushima-Lüge
Title of the film: The Fukushima Lie.

Filmautor: Johannes Hano
Author of the film: Johannes Hano


We are in the exclusion zone 7 km from the nuclear ruins (1min.34sec.). Yukitero Naka lived and worked here between the two nuclear power stations Fukushima Daiichi and Fukushima Daini (1min.46sec.).

Name of the location: "Tomioka" (1min.47sek.) (this is the location with the atomic plant of Fukushima Daini [web1]).

For many years Yukitero Naka and his staff drew peoples attention to safety breaches in the nuclear power plants, but nobody listened to them (1min.52sec.).

Nuclear engineer Yukitero Naka telling about the "Atomic Village"

Atomingenieur von Fukushima,
                Yukitero Naka
Nuclear engineer of Fukushima, Yukitero Naka

<A few of the smarter ones took my concerns seriously (2min.4sec.). However, they were not allowed to take note of it as there exists a big, influential group in Japan (2min.10sec.). In Japan we call them the nuclear village (2min.17sec.).

<Their philosophy is the "economy first".> (2min.21sec.)

<This nuclear village consists of TEPCO, the government and researchers from universities.> (2min.26sec.)

<This group makes all the important decisions.> (2min.33sec.).

Former prime minister Naoto Kan is telling

We meet for an exclusive interview in Tokyo with Naoto Kan. Back then he used to be the head of government and had to lead the country through the most difficult crisis since the second world war (2min.47sec.).

He will tell us a few stories that astound us. Such as a network that even keeps the prime minister in the dark (2min.56sec.).

The media spreads lies about him. He is forced to resign. The head of government took on a battle against the "nuclear village" (3min.6sec.).

<The biggest problem was that precautionary measures which should have been taken before the 11th of March were not taken.> (3min.13sec.)

<In this sense although the direct cause of the accident was the tsunami but more significantly the mistake was the required safety measures were not taken.> (3min.23sec.)

<That is a mistake of those responsible. They simply did not do what was required.> (3min.35sec.)

[Photo: Tokyo during the night with much power consumption]


The cause of the catastrophe was not the earthquake and tsunami? (3min.43sec.)

We are on the track of the "nuclear village" and discover a network of lies and complicit energy industry criminals (3min.47sec.).

[Photo: traveling by air plane over the clouds].

San Francisco: The maintenance engineer Kei Sugaoka who was controlling Fukushima: Tepco awaited from the engineers of General Electric that reports were faked

Our research takes us across two continents (3min.58sec.). We fly to California, San Francisco (4min.1sec.).

San Francisco, Fahrt über die
                Golden Gate Bridge
San Francisco, passing Golden Gate Bridge

We have an appointment with a man who inspected the reactors for many years (4min.21sec.).

Thus he experienced how the Japanese nuclear company TEPCO was able to hide even the most serious incidents (4min.28sec.).

The first reactor there was built by the American company General Electric in the 70's (4min.34sec.).

"American" engineers take over the inspections. And continually problems arise in Fukushima (4min.44sec.).

Question to the Japanese "American" maintenance engineer:

<What did TEPCO expect from them when the inspections were finished?> (4min.50sec.)

Sugaoka: <Oh, I can describe to you in two words what they wanted from me after I discovered the cracks: "Shut up, don't tell anyone." You know?> (5min.3sec.)

                General Electric im Ruhestand, Kei Sugaoka, Portrait
Former maintenance engineer of General Electric, Kei Sugaoka, portrait


Problems are not expected, as the nuclear industry has no problems in Japan (5min.8sec.).

And the "American" engineer Kei Sugaoka is not allowed to change anything about that (5min.14sec.).


<In 1989 we came out to make a video inspection about the vapor drier. We started our inspections of the reactor and suddenly we discovered a really big crack - a crack the size of which I had never seen before.> (5min.30sec.)

Reactor number 1 of Fukushima Daichi: The vapor drier is installed the wrong way - also this has to be concealed


But this is not the only thing Kei Suguoka and his colleague discovered (5min.40sec.).

Kei Sugaoka zeigt den

                Daiichi von 1989 [?]
Kei Sugaoka showing the inspection report about the vapor drier of Fukushima Daiichi of 1989 [?]

Maintenance engineer Kei Sugaoka:

<My colleague looked at the reactor and his eyes got bigger and bigger.> (5min.47sec.)

<Then he exclaimed: "They built in the vapor drier upside down!> (5min.57sec.)


The central building areas of the reactor had serious mistakes and flaws (6min.4sec.).

Kei Sugaoka lead the inspections and is responsible for the correct building procedures, but the results do not please to TEPCO (6min.14sec.).


<Thus we undertook the inspections, found the cracks and they demanded the video material be erased.> (6min.23sec.)

<I wasn't even allowed to write the inspection report by myself. They wrote it and I just signed it.> (6min.28sek.)

<They knew that I saw the wrong position of the vapor drier in the reactor and I had remarked it.> (6min.32sec.)

Question of the reporter:

<They forced your management to manipulate the documents?> (6min.36sec.)


<Yes! They forced our management to falsify our documents.> (6min.40sek.)

Reports of maintenance engineer Kei Suguoka after his retirement from General Electric

Kei Sugaoka and reporter Johannes Hano revising reports


Sugaoka remained silent for 10 years out of fear of losing his job (6min.47sek.).

When General Electric made him redundant, he broke his silence and fully informs the appropriate Japanese government department (6min.53sec.).

But to his astonishment nothing happens for years (6min.56sec.).

Japan's nuclear oversight agency tries to get rid of him (7min.0sec.).

Former governor of Fukushima province, Eisaku Sato, collecting news sending them - and all keeps quiet

[Photo of Fukushima]

However in 2001 he finally connects with an American engineer who will be his ally here in Fukushima, Japan (7min.17sec.).

Eisaku Sato was Governor of the prefecture for 18 years in Fukushima, member of the then ruling conservative party LPD (Liberal Democratic Party) (7min.32sec.).

Sato is a man of the political establishment who even accompanied th Japanese royal couple on their travels (7min.39sec.).

Also he let himself be convinced that the nuclear industry posed no danger for the population (7min.47sec.).

But then Sato lost his trust (7min.51sec.).

Eisaku Sato:

Ex-Gouverneur der Präfektur

Former Governor of Fukushima prefecture, Eisaku Sato, portrait

<I received 20 faxes from informants from the nuclear power station about my prefecture. Two of those were also from Kei Sugaoka.> (8min.4sec.)

<The Minister of Economics, instead of checking the accusations, directly passed on the information to TEPCO.> (8min.10sec.)

<Then something happened that I can hardly believe: TEPCO simply falsified the reports!> (8min.17sec.)

The warning from a big atomic disaster - dismissals and promotions in the TEPCO company

<I then wrote a newspaper article saying that if they continued to do this that there would definitely be a serious accident.> (8min.24sec.)

                der Skyline
The center of Tokyo with it's skyline.


Now the bureaucrats must act. 17 reactors are switched off (8min.31sec.).

A new investigation discovered that the electricity company TEPCO has been falsifying documents for decades, has hushed up serious incidents, including a nuclear meltdown in Fukushima that was concealed for 30 years (8min.48sec.).

Executives resign, staff are punished but receive new posts. Nobody is charged or torn to justice (8min.58sec.).

The most responsible at TEPCO Tsunehisa Katsumata is even promoted for being the president of the company (9min.4sec.).

Tsunehisa Katsumata, der
                Versager wird der neue "Präsident" bei Tepco
Japanese logic: Tsunehisa Katsumata, failing completely managing difficulties, is appointed the new "President" of TEPCO

He excuses himself with to governor Sato for the fraud and unethical behavior (9min.12sec.).

But Sato however doesn't rest. He continues to criticize the rapid growth of nuclear energy (9min.18sec.).

This however goes against the game rules of Japanese nuclear politics (9min.27sec.).

In 2004 they take revenge (9min.31sec.).

Revenge of TEPCO against Fukushima's Governor Sato

Eisaku Sato reports:

<On the 27th of December a newspaper report appears in which I was accused of being entangled in illegal real estate sales.> (9min.42sec.)

<The author was a journalist who was actually specialized in nuclear politics. The story was a pure fiction.> (9min.48sec.)

<Then my brother was arrested. The responsible solicitor had been placed from the department of the minister president here temporarily.> (9min.57sec.)

<His name was Morimoto and he told my brother: "Sooner or later we will destroy your brother, the Governor."> (10min.5sec.)

<It went so far that 200 people from my circle of friends were put under pressure.> (10min.11sec.)

<They told them: "Speak badly about the Governor - that is enough for us."> (10min.15sec.)

<Two or three couldn't stand the pressure and committed suicide.> (10min.21sec.)

<One of my department leaders is still lying in coma.> (10min.25sec.)


To protect his friends and colleagues Sato resigns.> (10min.30sec.)

A court later confirms his innocence but the troublemaker who dared to break his silence is finished (10min.39sec.).

Japanese atomic mafia "Atomic Village" governing and bribing with "donations" to Japanese politicians, culture, sports and media

Industrie in Tokio, vom
                "Atomdorf" beherrscht
Industry in Tokyo, being dominated by the "Atomic Village"

This is the revenge of the powerful group that has big parts of the Japanese society fast in its grip (10min.46sec.). Its harmless sounding name is "Nuclear Village", in Japan (10min.51sec.).

Former Prime Minister Naoto Kan is reporting

Ex-Premierminister Naoto Kan,
Former Prime Minister Naoto Kan, portrait

<For a long time in Japan, especially the last 10 to 20 years, there has been a suppression of statements in relation to the dangers of nuclear power.> (11min.2sec.)

<When specialists from Universities state that certain risks could exist then they risk their future career.> (11min.10sec.)

<Politicians often receive financial support from the energy companies. However when one speaks out about the risks of nuclear energy then one loses this support.> (11min.19sec.)

<On the other side of the coin, when you agree with nuclear energy, you receive generous donations.> (11min.25sec.)

<This also counts for culture, sports and it includes the media.> (11min.30sec.)

[Well: In Japan is dominating an atomic corruption as in France and in many other countries yet...]

<Due to these ties an environment has been created in which criticisms can hardly be spoken.> (11min.38sec.)

<This is why the "Nuclear Village" is not a problem limited to a small area, but encompasses the whole country.> (11min.45sec.)

<Everyone is caught in this "Nuclear Village".> (11min.48sec.)

Japanese atomic corruption: Bribed parliament members and corruption with posts: TEPCO posts are taken by people from the atomic control agency

Das japanische Parlament mit
                über 100 geschmierten Tepco-Vasallen
Japanese parliament with over 100 bribed TEPCO slaves


Prime Minister Kan faces a Parliament in which more than 100 members are receiving money from TEPCO, with them also a former Prime Minister as well as members of his own political party (12min.3sec.).

But the net is even much bigger: At the end of their political career many civil servants are switching over to the electricity giant (12min.10sec.).

Since 1962 the position of the TEPCO vice president has been appointed for being executed by former top political officials who were from the responsible atomic control agency (12min.19sec.).

[Thus there is no independent control at all].

In Japanese they are called "Amuka Dari" - "Those having descended from the heavens" (12min.24sec.).

Example of a Japanese atomic minister: Tokio Kanu

But is can go also the other way round: Tokio Kanu was a vice president of TEPCO first and is changing to the parliament and during 12 years he is the responsible for energy policy there before returning to TEPCO (12min.40sec.).

Atomkorruption in Japan: Tokio
                Kanu ist zuerst Vizeminister von Tepco, und dann ist er
                12 Jahre lang "Energieminister", und kehrt
                dann zu Tepco zurück...
Atomic corruption in Japan: First Tokio Kanu is vice president of TEPCO, then he "Energy Minister" during 12 years returning then to TEPCO

Example of a Japanese atomic parliament member Taro Kono and conservative atomic party of LDP

We speak about this network with the member of parliament Taro Kono. Kono comes from a prominent political dynasty. His father had been a Foreign Minister before (12min.53sec.).

Taro Kono, japanischer
                Abgeordneter der LDP, Portrait
Taro Kono, Japanese parliament member of LDP, portrait

Kono belongs to the conservative party of LDP. LDP was leading the country after the Second World War during nearly 60 years (12min.58sec.).

It was LDP that greatly encouraged the building up and the extension of the nuclear industry (13min.4sec.).

Taro Kono:

<They always explained "Nuclear disasters cannot happen in Japan".> (13min.9sec.)

<They never told the people that they should be prepared for it.> (13min.13sec.)

<Even the local councils were not made aware of the dangers.> (13min.16sec.)

<It was only stated that they didn't need to be ready for a serious incident because such cases could simply never happen.> (13min.23sec.)

<They tried to maintain this fiction and covered the truth with stories they made up> (13min.29sec.)

<And now they have to admit that all what they said were lies.> (13min.32sec.)

[And in this way the governments are lying world wide for their deadly atomic industry, above all in France, in England, in Switzerland, in the "U.S.A.", in Russia and so on...]

The tsunami of March 11, 2011: "At some locations up to 30 meters high"


And in this atmosphere a catastrophe occurs on the 11th of March that Japan has never seen before (13min.45sec.).

(The earthquake ("Tohoku earthquake") from March 11, 2011 was on 2:46 pm and it's epicenter was with grade 9 130 km before the coast line in the east of the town of Sendai. Already two days before there had been some preliminary tremors (foreshocks) with the grade of 6 and 7. The main earthquake of the grade 9 on 2:46 pm lasted 5 minutes. Then there were some aftershocks at the same day and during the following days yet with a grade between 6.4 to 7.9. On the Japanese continent the main earthquake had the grade between 6 and 7. The following tsunami was partly up to 38 meters high. At Fukushima the tsunami was 15 meters high. The protection wall of the atomic plant of Fukushima Daiichi was only 6 meters high and was taken by the tsunami thus the atomic plant with all it's reactors was 5 meters under water during hours [construction height is 10 meters above sea level]. Japan was shifted by 27 meters. Some coast lines of Japan were sinking by until 1.2 meters. Vertical movements [at the bottom of the sea] were up to 7 meters difference of height [web02]).

At 2:46 pm one of the strongest earthquakes ever recorded is striking the country. Its strength is 9.0.> (14min.0sec.)

[Photos about people running in the streets].

But the earthquake is only the trigger for the horror that is unfolding far away from the coast in the Pacific (14min.14sec.).

An enormous wave hurls forward towards the Japanese coast at several hundred km/h (14min.21sec.).

Tsunami in Japan 2011 (01)

In some parts the wave is up to 30 meters high and is punching through whole cities even eliminating them (14min.27sec.).

Nearly 20,000 people are losing their lives to the floods (14min.36sec.).

Th waves are also rolling over the yet intact nuclear power station of Fukushima Daiichi (15in.23sec.).

It's tsunami safety wall of 6 meters of height is much too low. Now comes the vengeance that neither TEPCO nor the nuclear regulatory body took ever serious the so called killer tsunamis - and that even the plan for the location had been changed (15min.36sec.). [Instead of on 35 meters above sea level the atomic plant was built only on 10 meters above sea level...]

The atomic plant of Fukushima Daiichi was planned in a height of 35 meters above sea level - but was built only on 10 meters above sea level

Naoto Kan is reporting:

<The area on which the nuclear power plant should be originally was at a height of 35 meters.> (15min.50sec.)

<Then the soil was removed till it was 10 meters above sea level and on this level the atomic plant was built.> (15min.56sec.)

<The explanation was that a lower position would be better for pumping water from the ocean.> (16min.0sec.)

<This is stated explicitly in TEPCO's own company history that just this would be especially economical.> 816min.6sec.)

                Harakiri (Selbstmord)...
The territory of the nuclear plant of Fukushima Daiichi was DELIBERATELY taken down from the projected height of 35 meters above sea level to a height of only 10 meters above sea level - thus the Japanese suicide mentality (harakiri) is provoking the radiation of the whole planet

No electricity - cores melting down - explosions - the radiating ruin


The enormous wave destroyed the rest of the badly damaged nuclear power plant. First the electricity is failing and then the emergency power system is flooded because it's position is too low (16min.20sec.).

But without power there is no cooling of the reactor cores (16min.24sec.).

Das meterhoch überschwemmte
                Atomkraftwerk Fukushima Daiichi, voller Treibgut
The atomic plant of Fukushima Daiichi is flooded by meters of water with flotsam rubble

The emergency center is not working because also there the power supply is failing

Former Prime Minister Naoto Kan is reporting:

<By law every power station needs an emergency center for the emergency case.> (16min.35sec.)

<In Fukushima this center was in a distance of 5 km from the power station, but it didn't work at all for even 1 minute.> (16min.41sec.)

<Due to the earthquake the staff did not reach the location immediately. then there was no power and thus all of the transmission equipment was out of service.> (16min.49sec.)

<This means that this emergency center confronted with the emergency case did not work at all.> (16min.54sec.)

<The law didn't even consider that an earthquake and a nuclear accident could occur at the same time.> (17min.0sec.)

Prime Minister without information - TEPCO does not want to confess anything

At this time Naoto Kan receives almost no information about the dramatic developments at the nuclear power plant (17min.8sec.).

Japanese Prime Minister gets his information about the huge explosion in Fukushima only by TV (17min.14sec.).

                Atomkraftwerks in Fukushima Daiichi, 11. März 2011
Explosion of reactors of the atomic plant of Fukushima Daiichi, March 11, 2011

Naoto Kan:

<Even over an hour after the pictures were shown on TV TEPCO did not give any report on what type of explosion had taken place there.> (17min.24sec.)

<Even if it had been very difficult probably to assess the situation at on site TEPCO should have been able to evaluate the situation orderly and should have informed the public. But they did not put enough effort in to it.> (17min.37sec.)

Helpless trials of TEPCO of "repairs"


On March 15, 2011 - four days after the catastrophe - TEPCO and the Japanese atomic energy authority are continuing appeasing the public and downplaying the risk (17min.50sec.).

An exploded and burnt reactor in the atomic plant of Fukushima Daiichi, March 14, 2011

However, secretly TEPCO asks permission from Prime Minister Kan for the workers to be evacuated from the nuclear power plant because otherwise they would all die (18min.0sec.).

A measuring device in the atomic plant of Fukushima Daiichi showing levels of 252 to 386, here 361. The Geiger counter may be manipulated.

Former Prime Minister Naoto Kan prohibiting the withdrawal

Naoto Kan is reporting:

<I had the TEPCO company president visit me and told him that an evacuation was out of question.> (18min.7sec.)

<Because if they left from there we would face a nuclear meltdown which would release an enormous amount of radioactive material.> (18min.13sec.)

<When this happens then a very big area of our country would be uninhabitable.> (18min.18sec.)

[Well, during this point of time already 3 cores had melt, this was concealed during 2 months - this lis Japanese suicide politics].

Former Prime Minister Naoto Kan is flying himself over the radiating atomic ruin of Fukushima Daiichi


Kan doesn't trust TEPCO from the beginning and is flying to Fukushima getting information in site himself (18min.25sec.).

TEPCO conceals that 3 core meltdowns have happened already

But nobody informs Japan's Prime Minister that at this point meltdown has already occurred in 3 reactors which took place on March 11 [2011] during the evening of the day of the catastrophe (18min.35sec.).

Naoto Kan:

<In the reports from TEPCO and from Japanese atomic power regulating authority - which should control TEPCO - not one sentence can be found mentioning that the fuel rods were damaged or that it had come to a nuclear meltdown.> (18min.50sec.)

<In the report of March 15, [2011], it was stated that such an event had not occurred yet.> (18min.56sec.)

TEPCO 1 year later

Die Firmenzentrale der
                Lügenfabrik Tepco
The head quarter of lying company of TEPCO


Tokio nearly one year after the catastrophe. We want to know from TEPCO why it took two months for them to admit what all experts around the world already had expected (19min.14sec.).

That the reactors had reached their meltdown at the beginning of the catastrophe already (19min.21sec.).

Press conference of TEPCO as a 1 year "jubilee" of the catastrophe of Fukushima. Question of the film producer:

"When did TEPCO know that a nuclear meltdown had occurred in the reactors, 1,2, and 3?" (19min.31sec.)

Junichi Matsumoto, the speaker of the lying company of TEPCO is answering:

Der Sprecher der Lügenfabrik
                Tepco, Junichi Matsumoto
Junichi Matsumoto, the speaker of lying company of TEPCO

<Of course we could not see this with our own eyes, but we were evaluating the situation by the data of the administrating head quarter.> (19min.42sec).

<We were getting aware of the fact that the core had melt and is probably at the bottom of the pressure chamber only at the beginning of May [2011].>

Lying company TEPCO is going on lying!

[Photo: Documents of TEPCO on a table].


They are still hiding the truth behind numbers and papers to this day:

During daily press conferences the electricity giant is presenting data that the situation in the atomic plant would be under control (20min.0sec.).

But in all this huge amount of data there is also hidden information provoking doubts if the responsibles of the catastrophe really know what they are doing (20min.8sec.).

Radioactive contaminated cooling water is "disappearing" - water pipes are "perforated" by grass

Casually the speaker is explaining that contaminated cooling water had disappeared (20min.13sec.).

The reason is that the pipes on the contaminated territory had been perforated by growing grass (20min.18sec.).

Fukushima Daiichi, Leitungen
                werden von Gras durchlöchert und deswegen
                "verschwindet" gemäss Tepco Kühlwasser
Fukushima Daiichi, water pipes are perforated by grass and therefore cooling water is "disappearing" - this tells TEPCO

Question of the film reporter at the press conference:

"Did you really just say that radioactive water is transported by water pipes that can be damaged by weeds?" (20min.25sec.)

Speaker of lying company of TEPCO:

<Well, yes, it was the first time that we placed pipes and tubes on a meadow. I believe our knowledge about this was not quite sufficient.> (20min.38sec.)

Visiting the ghost town of Tomioka - atomic engineer Yukitero Naka

Die Geisterstadt Tomioka, 7km
                vom explodierten Atomkraftwerk Fukushima Daiichi
Ghost town of Tomioka, 7 km from the exploded atomic plant of Fukushima Daiichi


But it's not only grass that endangers the atomic ruins (20min.53sec.).

We are in Tomioka, a ghost town (20min.57sec.).

We are 7 km from what remains of Fukushima Daiichi. We are traveling with Yukitero Naka, the nuclear engineer (21min.8sec.).

Local residents like him are allowed to return one hour at a time to retrieve personal affects from the exclusion zone (21min.15sec.).

He shows us his company, destroyed by the earthquake and made uninhabitable by the radiation (21min.23sec.).

                ist noch vorhanden
Nuclear engineer Yukitero Naka in his company in Tomioka, the mess of after the earthquake is existing yet.

Yukitero Naka reports, now as a President of "Tohuku Enterprise":

<This wooden made office was very comfortable.> (21min.35sec.)

<No noise, cool in summer and warm in winter.> (21min.40sec.)

<My staff was very happy here.> (21min.43sec.)


80 nuclear experts are working for him. Since the catastrophe many of them are helping trying and keeping the damaged nuclear power plant under control (21min.54sec.).

Soon not radiated skilled workers are running out

Yukitero Naka and his staff know what is really happening in the nuclear ruins (21min.59sec.).

And then Naka is uttering his greatest concern:

<My biggest concern is that we soon are running out of skilled workers who can work in the destroyed power plant.> (22min.7sec.)

<Because most of them will reach their maximum radiation dose soon. I don't know where we should get enough skilled workers for the work in the power plant.> (22min.19sec.)

Atomingenieur Yukitero Naka
                befürchtet, dass es bald keine Atomingenieure mehr geben
Nuclear engineer Yukitero Naka fearing that nuclear engineers will be running out

[Well, "maximum nuclear dose" is another lie of course because ALL measurements are a lie there and many nuclear engineers will die in the next 5 years because they got a multiple of the maximum dose - and TEPCO is not confessing this...]


But without qualified underexposed skilled workers it will not be possible for keeping the disaster under control (22min.30sec.).

Even if it would be successful for recruiting enough qualified engineers and skilled workers during the next 40 years one problem is remaining that could change Japan and the whole world (22min.41sec.I).

1,300 fuel rods in reactor number 4 - and one more earthquake would provoke a nuclear inferno

Question of the speaker:

<Is the nuclear power plant safe now?> (22min.46sec.)

Nuclear engineer Yukitero Naka:

<Well, that's what TEPCO and the government says, safety now, but the people there inside don't believe it.> (23min.1sec.)

<There is still a very heavy danger. My personal concern is the reactor block number 4.> (23min.7sec.)

<The building has been heavily damaged by the earthquake.> (23min.11sec.)

<In the cooling pond on level four about 1,300 spent fuel rods can be found yet.> (23min.16sec.)

<In the level above new fuel rods are stored yet, and a lot of heavy machinery.> (23min.22sec.)

<All this is very, very heavy. If one more earthquake will occur then the building could collapse. And this could very likely provoke another chain reaction.> (23min.34sec.)

This would mean an open-air core meltdown would happen, and this would mean the end of Japan how we know it until today (23min.47sec.).

Radioactive radiation would be immediately deadly, works on the territory would be impossible (23min.52sec.).

The most probable consequence would be: Also the reactors 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 would be out of control provoking an Armageddon [complete disaster] (23min.1sec.).

Seismologist Hideki Shimamura in Tokyo: Seismic acceleration in Japan is very much stronger than admitted until before - all nuclear atomic plants are too weak

In Tokyo we meet the famous seismologist and professor Mr. Hideki Shimamura. In February [2012] scientists of Tokyo University had published a new earthquake study (24min.20sec.).

According to this study Japan will be hit by a new big earthquake with a probability of 75% (24min.26sec.).

Speaker asking:

"Is there the real possibility that the nuclear power plants would be damaged by an earthquake?" (24min.35sec.)

<Yes, very likely.>


<Seismologic acceleration being measured in "Gal" is much stronger than we had admitted before.> (24min.45sec.)

<In the last few years we had installed over 1,000 special measuring devices and we could register that the eruptions of the earthquakes were stronger and were occurring with a higher acceleration than we had ever imagined before.> (24min.56sec.)


But this fact means for all buildings in Japan a massive problem, also for the nuclear power plants as professor Shimamura is telling us (25min.9sec.).

Seismologist Hideki Shimamura:

<This is the web site of the power company. This is the building plan for a Japanese nuclear power plant.> (25min.15sek.)

<The company is assuming that in the future the strongest earthquake zones will provoke an acceleration of 300 to 450 Gal.> (25min.23sec.)

Offizielle Datenvorgabe beim
                Bau von Atomkraftwerken in Japan: 450 bis 600 Gal
Official data for a construction of a nuclear power plant in Japan: 300 to 600 Gal, considering that 450 to 600 Gal is "the unrealistic exception"

<Then they say that for this extremely unlikely case the power plants will be designed for an acceleration of up to 600 Gal.> (25min.32sec.)

<But this counts only for the safety containment area of the reactor, not for the other structures.> (25min.37sec.)

<Our research shows that the last two big quakes had accelerations of up to 4,000 Gal.> (25min.42sec.)

<This is much higher than it is foreseen in the design pattern.> (25min.47sec.)

Japanese nuclear power plants are much too weak!

Question of the speaker:

"The nuclear plant owners knew this but they didn't reinforce them, right?" (25min.55sec.)

<Not yet. Not enough, I fear.> (26min.1sec.)

<Building a power plant withstanding such a strong earthquake is nearly impossible anyway.> (26min.7sec.)

The fight with the atomic ruin of Fukushima in the "emergency center" - Shirai Isao of lying company of TEPCO

In a distance of 60 km from the nuclear ruin. Here in the emergency center all the information comes together. Here the fight against the nuclear hell fire is coordinated with TEPCO, with the nuclear regulation authority and with the prefecture (26min.20sec.).

We have an appointment with responsibles of TEPCO who are responsible for cleaning up (26min.27sec.).

We want to know from them how they want to protect the nuclear power plant from a strong earthquake. Especially the endangered reactor block number 4. (26min.35seg.).

Shirai Isao from the lying company Tepco is reporting:

Atomingenieur von Tepco Herr

Nuclear engineer from TEPCO, Mr. Shirai Isao, portrait

<In the cooling pond of reactor number 4 many fuel rods can be found yet. For protecting them a reinforcement of the basin is necessary. In the floors under the basin support columns are installed actually.> (26min.48sec.)


"Your nuclear power plant is nearly absolutely destroyed. How you are relying on the possibility that it will withstand one more strong earthquake since it was damaged already one year ago when the nuclear power plant was still intact?" (27min.1sec.)

Isao from the lying company of TEPCO:

<We have investigations according safety of earthquakes not only referring to the reactor number 4. And we got the result that there are no problems.> (27min.10sec.)


"But seismologists are measuring forces of up to 4,000 Gal indicating that no nuclear power plant can withstand this. What makes you so sure that an earthquake directly under Fukushima would not provoke a heavy damage the remnants of this nuclear power plant?" (27min.22sec.)

Answer of the lying company TEPCO:

<This place, these 4,000 Gal you are speaking about is maybe another place I think.> (27min.33sec.)

<I cannot give an answer to this.> [and he is smiling to his neighbor who is also from the lying company of TEPCO] (27min.35sec.)


"Do you really believe that TEPCO is prepared for managing nuclear power plants in Japan?" (27min.43sec.)


[There is no answer from both TEPCO liars during over 10 seconds (!)].

Die Atomingenieure Shirai Isao
                und sein Kollege von Tepco schweigen über 10 Sekunden
Nuclear engineers Shirai Isao and his colleague from TEPCO are silent over 10 seconds in the same position only gazing at the scheme of a nuclear reactor...

Then Mr. Isao is saying:

<This is difficult to answer.> (28min.7sec.)

<Mankind should know this result.> (28min.36sek.)

<For a common policy in the future.> (28min.44sek.)
