Former Japan PM: I thought nuke mishap could destroy Tokyo (Dong-a Ilbo, September 6, 2011):

Former Japanese Prime Minister Kan Naoto says he felt a sense of crisis that the nuclear plant mishap in Fukushima could obliterate Tokyo and its vicinity, said the Japanese daily Tokyo Shimbun Tuesday.

Kan, who stepped down as prime minister Friday, said, “The week shortly after the accident is the period when I felt the highest sense of crisis,” adding, “The thought of an uninhabited Tokyo made me shudder.”

“At around 3 a.m. March 15, three days after the accident, I got a report from then Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Banri Kaieda that Tokyo Power Corp. was about to withdraw from the nuclear facility. So instantly I summoned the company`s president Masataka Shimizu and asked him to set up a joint countermeasures headquarters of the government and the company at the company’s headquarters,” Kan said.

“Had Tokyo Power Corp. withdrawn from the nuclear power plant, nobody might live in Tokyo now.”

Kan said, “If the power company had pulled out of the facility and left nuclear fuel unattended, the cooling water would have dried out within dozens of hours and the meltdown of reactors would have occurred,” adding, “If this had been the case, radioactive materials several or even dozens of times as much as those leaked in Chernobyl would had leaked. The country was brought to the brink of collapse.”

Kan also explained why he sought to wean Japan from nuclear energy, saying, “Before the accident, my stance was to utilize nuclear power plants. I thought that Japanese technology would make things all right but I changed my mind after the accident.”

“If people cannot live within a radius of 100 or 200 kilometers from a crippled nuclear power plant, Japan will cease to exist. Evacuating 100,000 or 200,000 people is a very difficult task, but if we have to evacuate 30 million people in the capital area, we won`t have enough shelters to accommodate them. To avoid such a calamity, we have no choice but to become independent of nuclear power plants.”

On communication of information at the time of the accident, Kan said, “Even the Prime Minister’s Office wasn’t informed of the situation accurately. The atomic safety commission said no hydrogen explosion would occur because containment vessels were filled with nitrogen. In reality, however, explosions occurred inside reactor buildings.”

Radiation exposure is increased by a factor of a trillion. Inhaling even the tiniest particle, that’s the danger.

Yo: So making comparisons with X-rays and CT scans has no meaning. Because you can breathe in radioactive material.

Hirose: That’s right. When it enters your body, there’s no telling where it will go. The biggest danger is women, especially pregnant women, and little children. Now they’re talking about iodine and cesium, but that’s only part of it, they’re not using the proper detection instruments. What they call monitoring means only measuring the amount of radiation in the air. Their instruments don’t eat. What they measure has no connection with the amount of radioactive material.

Dr. Helen Caldicott (Co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility):

- The Propaganda From The Government And The Nuclear Industry About Low-Level Radiation Is Absolute Rubbish:

You’ve bought the propaganda from the nuclear industry. They say it’s low-level radiation. That’s absolute rubbish. If you inhale a millionth of a gram of plutonium, the surrounding cells receive a very, very high dose. Most die within that area, because it’s an alpha emitter. The cells on the periphery remain viable. They mutate, and the regulatory genes are damaged. Years later, that person develops cancer. Now, that’s true for radioactive iodine, that goes to the thyroid; cesium-137, that goes to the brain and muscles; strontium-90 goes to bone, causing bone cancer and leukemia. It’s imperative that you understand internal emitters and radiation, and it’s not low level to the cells that are exposed. Radiobiology is imperative to understand these days.”The Japanese people are used as guinea pigs:

  1. Mark Says:

    Is this article an attempt at dark humor?

    Each of the key statements expressing relief that the worst possible outcomes did not occur are incorrect.

    Confirm the details with Arnie Gundersen at fairewinds dot com, but AFAIK, the reactors entered the meltdown process right after the earthquake occurred, before the tsunami. The earthquake resulted in a loss of water flow from the reactors to the turbines. With no water circulation there is no place for the heat of the nuclear reaction to go except into the surroundings. Everything begins to melt very quickly.

    Next, the radiation released is many, many times worse than Chernobyl. The size of the fuel pile at Chernobyl was tiny compared to Fukushima.

    As far as I’m concerned, after reviewing the air and soil radiation reports, Tokyo is not a safe place to be. Its the greatest city that humans will probably ever create and now its horribly polluted with various forms of radioactive particles.

  2. Infinite Says:

    @Mark,

    Everything you say is correct.

    Former PM Kan is a lying criminal.

    If you are a regular visitor of Infinite Unknown then you know that.

    I’ve provided a lot of links for you to see what is going on here.

    And yes, Tokyo is not safe. It is a very dangerous place to be.

    Thanks for commenting.
