Fukushima Housewife's Story of Nuclear Meltdown

Fukushima Housewife's Story of Nuclear Meltdown

Via Energy News January 23rd 2013

In a chilling testimony, the wife of a Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant worker, Takumi Takano, tells us about the meltdown, the hardships her family had to go through and the many Japanese government failures that followed. Knowing beforehand about the impending disaster, her husband evacuated their family from their Tomioka home just nine kilometers from the power plants on March 11, 2011. They all escaped to southerly Saitama Prefecture and then later on moved back to Koriyama, Fukushima.
"The day of the quake he told us right away that we should evacuate. My 80 y/o father lived close by. So we escaped together to the south. My husband said the wind was blowing north. He knew even before the government announced. When we were on the run he said the plant would melt down."
In this exclusive and very personal account of the Fukushima collapse, Takano blames the Japanese government for "lying to us from the get-go." Spoken in Japanese with English subtitles:

  2. This testimony is solid proof that TEPCO knew beforehand that the nukes were gonna puke. Yet they kept it all quiet and said "Don't worry, be happy" etc. etc. When will those swine be gelded and quartered?
