Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.

Leaked Email Predicted Radioactive Release May 8

This from Energy News, three days ago.

The Phantom Draft Energy Agency, Taro Kono, member of Japan’s House of Representatives, May 5, 2011:

The three went through the mail came from the bureaucracy of young attachment energy agency.

Integrating the entire TEPCO Group meeting minutes of May 1 the government.
Release is made with a high concentration of 8 days will be like this.
From assistant Hosono, this case is very important on the go to the next step, such as installation of heat exchangers, and (the future in terms that can be discharged out of the radioactive material) during discharge of contaminated water avoid repeating mistakes, officials close to the sharing of information we want working with high sensitivity, which was said.

An ENENEWS reader adds:

My partner who is Japanese brought this blog post to my attention. It is from Taro Kono, who is in the house of representatives (LDP, opposition to current government):

In particular this section:
エネ庁の若手官僚から添付ファイルが3通ついたメールが来た。 その一 5月1日の政府・東電統合本部全体会合の議事録。 『このままいくと8日にも高濃度の放出が行われる。』 『細野補佐官から,本件は熱交換機の設置といった次のステップに進む上で非常に重要である,また,(今後,放射性物質が外に排出され得るという点で,)汚染水排出の際の失敗を繰り返さないよう,関係者は情報共有を 密に行い,高い感度を持って取り組んで欲しい,とする発言があった。』

Translation (non-literal and our understanding):
I received 3 emails with attachments from junior government officials in the energy department.

The first email:
Minutes of meeting between TEPCO and the government on the 1st May. “If the current situation continues, high density radiation will be released on the 8th May.”

“Mr Hosono said: It is very important to go to the next step regarding the installation of the heat exchanger machine. For the concerned parties, be careful of the sharing of information with high sensitivity so that the same mistakes aren’t made again like the release of the radiated water previously.

The second and third emails aren’t related so we didn’t translate it. It isn’t clear from the text the way the radiation will be released. ie airborne or via water.

The aforementioned energy department English homepage is this:
Perhaps those who are following the work and/or parameters of the reactors could hypothesise what they are thinking about doing.

Today is the 8th,  and there has been a huge spike.
In fact there most likely was a fire on the evening of the seventh:

If that fire is in the spent fuel pool, that's the Gundersen 'Chernobyl on steroids' option.  That spent fuel is MOX fuel, and not all of it is spent, at least not in the common fuel pool or in that of 4, which was being shut down for maintenence and all its new fuel stored in the spent pool.  Also I have now reson to believe that much more of it is stored in the spent pool than was ever intended; this is it seems a common practice in the industry due to the lack of a satisfactory long term storage solutiuon.

But that doesn't completely explain what the hell is going on:

Unit temperature rise of 3 or fuel melting due to, TBS, May 8, 2011 

I wrote to Mr. Gundersen, as I am sure others have, about this.  It is very disturbing.  If anyone has any news or insight, please leave a comment or drop me a line.

Be seeing you.


  1. remember the four horsemen one was calld death. all black and claimed many lives. we have Famine and wars Death the last one is plagues and disease .

  2. Ionizing radiation can break molecules, at a cellular level, causing unpredictable chemical reactions.

    Think of vibrations breaking glass, that is what happens at a cellular level, in your body, from ionizing radiation.

    Ionizing radiation is insidious, these large subatomic particles travel until they are stopped.

    Your skin can easily stop them.

    Once they are ingested, inhaled, or enter your body through a cut, their grotesque potent force cuts through your body like knife through butter, into the cells, blood or other organs, impacting other organs and leaving behind hideous, shocking damage.

    A single alpha particle from Plutonium, Uranium, Americium or Radon can deliver a huge blast of radiation inside your body. This radiation energy can destroy your genetic material at a cellular level.

    Some people are more susceptible than others:

    * Those who are already sick
    * Those who have weak immune systems
    * The elderly
    * Children, babies & the unbornn

    Chernobyl Deja Vu

    Just my luck to be in Germany during Chernobyl! How easily the clock turns back to April 1986 remembering the precautions that were taken to avoid bringing fallout into a home, I also remember the horrible immune system health disorders that I endured during 1987.

    What I did then, is what I'm doing now.

    * Protect the Thyroid
    * Detox specifically for heavy metals
    * Detox on a regular basis as my body requires
    * Support a robust immune system
    * Eat Super Foods and Antioxidants daily.

    And all of our animals are also included in this special care.

    Just a tablespoon, or so, of clay in their water will remove heavy metals, detox & remove parasites, bacteria & viruses.

    And our soil where the garden is will be decontaminated before the garden is planted.

    It should be clear that there is a complete blackout of important Fukushima news. Chernobyl burned only 10 days and 1 million died, with the birth defects and cancers continuing 25 years later.

    What more do we really need to hear about Fukushima?

  3. What does not kill us will change us 4ever!
    Radiation causes cellular mutation.
