    Visual evidence now confirms what earlier was known: namely, that Tokyo Electric’s (TEPCO) Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station experienced at least one core nuclear meltdown, perhaps much worse than now admitted.

    An earlier article explained, accessed through the following link:

    SteveLendmanBlog: Fukushima Meltdown Confirmed

    Nuclear expert Karl Grossman calls it the ultimate nuclear nightmare, a real time China Syndrome, portrayed fictionally in the 1979 film by the same name.

    On May 12, Hiroshima Peace Institute Professor Robert Jacobs told Russia Today TV that plant conditions “are much more serious than we were told earlier.”

    In fact, confirming a coverup, he explained:

    “We were not told that for a long time….I have a rule of thumb, which is that anything that is publicly stated is probably around 10 to 20% of what’s true. It will take us years to know the extent of the contamination and the extent of the fuel melting. The best case scenario in this situation is that it will take months to begin to stop leaking radiation from the reactors.”

    As a result, plant conditions are extremely serious, perhaps out of control, but don’t expect government or media reports to admit it. Short of that, on May 12, TEPCO said low water levels fully exposed Fukushima’s Unit No. 1, grudgingly confirming a meltdown of nuclear fuel rods.

    According to Junichi Matsumoto, TEPCO’s general manager:

    “The water level is one meter below the base of the fuel assembly….Melted fuel has dropped to the bottom of the pressure vessel and is still being cooled…(Entombment) plans need to be revised. We can’t deny the possibility that a hole in the pressure vessel caused water to leak.”

    Moreover, other fuel rods are also affected, AP saying:

    “other fuel (melted) to the bottom of the pressure vessel and is thought (but not confirmed) to be covered in water….The findings also indicate a greater-than-expected leak in that vessel.”
