(in case you missed it) FUKUSHIMA MOLTEN FUEL VISIBLE FROM FLYOVER (video pulled from youtube)

For other updates scroll to bottom.

Just a little something that has been bothering me. Here is a copy of the video, posted May 23, in which at around the 30 second mark one can see the slag (h/t Mike Rivero at WhatReallyHappened.com):


Here you can download the video.  And here is a zipped archive of all the stills that contain the slag.

Here is a slowed down version just of the slag:

The video detail above links to youtube where is posted an exhaustive summary of the repost history of the original drone flyby video.  Also The Guardian mentions that the fuel was suspected to have breached containment and be lying pooled on the concrete floor in number two, outside of which the video detail above appears to show it seeping to the outside along some sort of pipe.  I do not think anyone else has recognized this as a pipe.

Here are a few of the stills that I have chosen to enlarge, for my own, uh, amusement:


Now, that is clearly a pipe that the slag is dripping out of, wouldn't you say?  And if you watch the video  in slow motion, or often enough, it would appear to be at the base of reactor Number Two. 

Here is a hi-res photo, from the excellent collection at Cryptome, to get your bearings:

This photo is very large; right-click to view in separate tab.  From Cryptome, the first of the Fukushima eyeball series: to which as I understand the webmaster would rather I not link.  The full eyeball series may be downloaded series at Cryptome.org.

The video was flagged by Youtube as having content id that matched content owned by the Asahi Corporation.  It is blocked worldwide and my account restricted until and unless I delete it.


(for all who want to repost this, you want to mention me -- just sayin'.)

EnergyNews did a piece about one Scott Portzline whom I believe may not be exactly forthcoming concerning how he came across this clip. If, in March 2011, he saw the clip and 'something told him to watch that part again' (or however he mealy-mouthedly put it), at which time lo! he saw the corium! he had to slow it down! he had to tell his pal (to whose attention, by email, I had by this time brought the very same footage) Arnie Gundersen! -- if all this is as it happened, why wait to speak of it?  I had before a few months ago seen nor hide nor hair of this Portzline online.  I had, however, seen the photo he published: I believe it to be the very same graphic first published on my blog,  enhanced and enlarged by Mirage of Miragination, A comprehensive publishing history from my comment response:

  • the fuel is VISIBLE OUTSIDE THE BUILDING in an aerial survey: http://tinyurl.com/itgotout (shot around 3/24/11:). I slowed it down and enlarged the stills, it is clearly oozing out of some sort of pipe. all this is available at the above link for download or view.
  • (…to which copyright, perhaps not so coincidentally, Asahi laid claim recently. … this resulting in my taking down the copy i had uploaded to Youtube. this was around the same time that TokyoBrownTabby's channel got nixed, and i found out MsMiklkyttheclown at youtube and arevamirpal::laprimavera of ex-skf were at around the same time having their energies similarly wasted. Now, emboldened by ex-skf's recent victory (http://ex-skf.blogspot.com/2012/07/ot-asahi-tv-corporation-released-its.html), i think i will repost….)

  • …..when Time magazine came out with that garbage about Fukushima not being a China Syndrome — and they were not being precise in their use of the terminology like Gundersen is attempting to be when he launches his inquiry — i was so mad i spent a Sunday tweeting and emailing this video clip to every single reporter who had echoed the talking point.
  • Lochbaum said it was more apt to be called an "America Syndrome," and with tthat i agree….

and here is a more verbose account by yours truly, from the comment section over at EX-SKF:

1) "The temperature of that fuel pool is unknown due to a failure of the instrumentation." again. i keep seeing this pop up. they keep installing new instruments. why do the new ones not work? is it not an analog gauge?

2) in Your Opinion, Sir,
a) is this hot spot at the base of the stack?
b) or could it be, say, a little farther seaward?

actually, 2(b) is the question i was most burning (*ahem*) to ask you.
@female Faust, whose flyover video is that? Air Photo Service? or someone else? The hot spot is supposed to be at the base of the stack, but some experts think it's not from the stack.


the original video was up;oaded by responsejp on Mar 17, 2011 titled "東日本大地震】東電社員が撮影した福島原発 その2"
with the caption "
ヘリコプターで上空より撮影した福島第一原子力発電所(福島県大熊町)3号機と4号機の映像の一部が17日夜、東京電力によって公開された。同社社員が現地確認のため、1616時頃に撮影したもの。公開された映像は3種類あり、映像には、水素爆発を起こして水蒸気をあげる3号機建屋や、天井と側壁が爆発で吹 き飛んだ4号機建屋の姿が映っている"

(this google translates as "2 Fukushima nuclear power plant employees have taken a major earthquake - Eastern Electric Power "
with the caption "Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station was taken by helicopter from the sky (Okuma-machi, Fukushima Prefecture), the night part of the image 17 of Unit 4 and Unit No. 3, published by Tokyo Electric Power Company. to confirm the company's local employees , was taken around 16:00 16. Image was published has three, to video, and building machines No. 3 up steam causing the hydrogen explosion, building machines, No. 4, flew came blowing in the blast walls and ceilings have seen the figure of."

---funny, i think from studying it that it is not 3 and 4 but is between 1 and 2. It is also interesting to note that a comment was left on my slowed down version of the video indicating that the commenter thought it was a roof and not ground level out of which this glowing material appears to be extruding --

@ a female Faust

maybe it's the hot SFP with melted fuel glowin'-through the "roof"?

mayybe..... i had thought all this time it was ground level -- hmm --

and another thing: in researching this i was reacquainted with certain headlines from April 9. You reported the incident as #Fukushima I Nuke Plant: Reactor 1's Containment Vessel (Dry Well) Measured 100 Sievert, Later Back to 6.83 Sievert.

if 10 sieverts is off the scale, how could 100 be measured?

Also, EnergyNews reader & active commenter ForwardAssist, a.k.a. youtuber RobinHoodTheorem   has produced another slowed down version from what looks to be the same clip (same name on the mp4, same longer version).  Here it is for comparison (h/t ForwardAssist):


Japan's Retaliation For Israeli Exploit of Secret US-Japan Deal Is Main Cause of Fukushima Crisis?!?! 

That was the old title.  How about:

Israeli Double Cross 
in Secret US-Japan Nuke Deal
(That Presupposed 
A New Japanese Defense Program) 
Set Stage for Fukushima Crisis?!?!

The following article blew my mind -- and I don't think it can be disregarded, I think it checks out, but that is merely an opinion.  Perhaps you can help me?  I would like to verify, corroborate, correct, or debunk every statement of the following intense little article to which WRH linked on Sunday October 2, 2011.  The article itself appears in Rense; the author, Yoichi Shimatsu, is no lightweight (more on that later). His article is excerpted below; be sure and visit the link to read the whole thing -- and if you have a moment, please leave a comment...  

Secret US-Israeli Nuke Transfers
Led To Fukushima Blasts
By Yoichi Shimatsu

...The explosions that rocked the Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant were more powerful than the combustion of hydrogen gas, as claimed by the Tokyo Electric Power Company. The actual cause of the blasts, according to intelligence sources in Washington, was nuclear fission of. warhead cores illegally taken from America's sole nuclear-weapons assembly facility. Evaporation in the cooling pools used for spent fuel rods led to the detonation of stored weapons-grade plutonium and uranium.

The facts about clandestine American and Israeli support for Japan's nuclear armament are being suppressed in the biggest official cover-up in recent history. The timeline of events indicates the theft from America's strategic arsenal was authorized at the highest level under a three-way deal between the Bush-Cheney team, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Elhud Olmert's government in Tel Aviv.


An Israeli Double-Cross

The nuclear shipments to Japan required a third-party cutout for plausible deniability by the White House. Israel acted less like an agent and more like a broker in demanding additional payment from Tokyo, according to intelligence sources. Adding injury to insult, the Israelis skimmed off the newer warhead cores for their own arsenal and delivered older ones. Since deteriorated cores require enrichment, the Japanese were furious and demanded a refund, which the Israelis refused. Tokyo had no recourse since by late 2008 principals Abe had resigned the previous autumn and Bush was a lame duck.

The Japanese nuclear developers, under the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, had no choice but to enrich the uranium cores at Fukushima No.1, a location remote enough to evade detection by nonproliferation inspectors. Hitachi and GE had developed a laser extraction process for plutonium, which requires vast amounts of electrical power. This meant one reactor had to make unscheduled runs, as was the case when the March earthquake struck..

Yoichi Shimatsu is no lightweight: what I meant to say is that his work has been published by the Centre for Research On Globalization, where he wrote the following on March 13th, 2011 (when most of us had no idea how little we knew about the nuclear industry):

Hidden nuclear crisis

March 13, 2011 
by Yoichi Shimatsu

The recurrent tendency to deny systemic errors - "in order to avoid public panic" - is rooted in the determination of an entrenched bureaucracy to protect itself rather than in any stated purpose of serving the nation or its people. That's the unspoken rule of thumb in most governments, and the point is that Japan is no shining exception. 

So what today is being silenced on orders from the Tokyo government? The official mantra is that all five nuclear power plants in the northeast are  locked down, safe and not leaking. The cloaked reality is that at least one of those - Tepco's Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant - is under an emergency alert at a level indicative of a quake-caused internal rupture. The Fukushima powerhouse is one of the world's largest with six boiling-water reactors.

Over past decades, the Japanese public has been reassured by the Tokyo Electric Power Company that its nuclear reactors are prepared for any eventuality. Yet the mystery in Fukushima is not the first unreported problem with nuclear power, only the most recent. Back in 1996  amid a reactor accident in Ibaraki province, the government never admitted that radioactive fallout had drifted over the northeastern suburbs of Tokyo. Our reporters got confirmation from monitoring stations, but the press was under a blanket order not to run any alarming news, the facts be damned. For a nation that's lived under the atomic cloud of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, total denial becomes possible now only because the finger on the button is our own.

Emphasis mine.

So he had a clue then, it would seem, about this: Japan did not have a finger on The Button, as far as I knew, back in March. 

Gentle reader, please help if you can.  I will be posting this request everywhere I can. This is too important to let pass with a "Hmm, interesting..." and then relegate to forgetfulness.  We need sources; I may have one or two -- you may as well.  This may have merely been an oversight, though it crossed my mind that if sources were not provided perhaps it is not in the Author's best interests to do so.  Perhaps I am wrong, and we will soon be provided with a full bibliography and footnotes.

But if not: I most definitely still need to see proof, don't you?  Footnotes.  Appendices.  Citations.  References.  Field notes.  Emails.  Phone numbers.  Photographs.  Proof.  PDFs.  Links. This need to be thoroughly checked.
