Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

NRC "Intentionally Mischaracterized" Info To Conceal From Public, Say Whistleblowers


Relevant section begins with background info at 9:04, first mention of whistle blowers at 9:54.  But watch the whole thing and you will learn not only that the NRC knew in 1976 Mark 1 style containment vessels could leak -- even though they continue to assume in design and safety calculations that the probability of leakage is zero -- but you also may experience, as a bonus, the added satisfaction of  finding out that TepCo now quietly agrees that the explosion of Fukushima Unit 3 was a "detonation," even as they irrationally attribute it to hydrogen gas buildup in the basement.  Hydrogen is lighter than air.  Hydrogen explosions do not break the sound barrier: they are deflagrations, not detonations. Thanks to Fairewinds, and to their clear presentation of the relevant evidence, many suspect that only a detonation could be responsible for the damage to Unit 3. Prompt criticalities, even moderated ones, are detonations.
