Two months since Fukushima nuclear disaster began

I plan to keep updating this article as more information comes out. 

Update May 21 2011

Nuclear plant workers suffer internal radiation exposure after visiting Fukushima

 The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said it received the data from power companies across the country that measured the workers' internal exposure to radiation with "whole-body counters" and recorded levels of 1,500 counts per minute (cpm) or higher. In 1,193 cases, workers had internal exposure to radiation of more than 10,000 cpm. Those workers had apparently returned to their homes near the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant or had moved to other nuclear power plants from the Fukushima No. 1 and 2 nuclear power plants.


Update May 17 2011

Dying for TEPCO

Job offers come not from TEPCO but from Mizukami Kogyo, a company whose business is construction and cleaning maintenance. The description indicates only that the work is at a nuclear plant in Fukushima prefecture. The job is specified as three hours per day at an hourly wage of 10,000 yen (about US$ 122). There is no information about danger, only the suggestion to ask the employer for further details on food, lodging, transportation and insurance.

First I would like to thank the many fine folks at Above Top Secret for their relentless digging for truth on the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster, most of todays post is infomation gleaned from this thread at ATS

Here is a link to a Japanese blog that is one of the best sources of information on the current situation at FU-shima: EX-SKF
