13 April 2015 (Japan Times) – Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday that radiation in the primary containment vessel of the No. 1 reactor of the Fukushima No. 1 power station gets as high as 9.7 sieverts per hour — enough to kill a human within an hour.

The radiation levels at six locations in the western section of the first floor of the PCV ranged from 7.0 to 9.7 sieverts per hour, the beleaguered utility said in disclosing data collected by a remote-controlled robot on Friday.

By contrast, the temperatures at the six locations monitored were cool, ranging from 17.8 to 20.2 degrees.

Tepco sent the robot into the primary containment vessel on Friday, expecting it to stay alive for 10 hours. But the robot failed within three hours after completing about two-thirds of its planned route. Tepco has given up on recovering the robot. [more]

    Japan needs to ask the Keshe Foundation for help. I heard he offered but was denied. He is Iranian born. Years back when he sent the US an invitation to come get free technology at a seminar, Barrack Obama said no and put them on the terrorist list and told their allies they could not go either. Rothschild control. Some folks can't just get it in their heads. This Extinction Level Event (ELE) is perfect for them. Removing 90% of the worlds population is no joke. And how many articles do we have now about Japan wanting to restart several or all of their nuclear power plants even as earthquakes loom all around them. Regardless new islands are still growing off their coast. I know Eskimos that are smarter. The Japanese President after winning his Olympic bid stated things were well under control and Japan was safe for all to come. I was blogging he is a liar.

    Watch the video, the level hits 24.9 sieverts not 9.7.

    Great reporting.

    It seems like the drought in California started shortly after the Fukushima incident. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but it does seem odd.
